Rio Tinto closing in on Riversdale deal

first_img Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Global miner Rio Tinto inched closer to gaining control of coal producer Riversdale Mining after a $3.9bn sweetened bid rallied more shareholders to accept the offer but Riversdale’s top shareholders Tata Steel and CSN still hold the key.Rio, which has set a deadline of April 1 to gain majority control of Riversdale, said it had gained acceptances from 26.13 percent of shareholders as of 11 March, up from 17.86 per cent earlier.Rio raised its bid by 3 percent to A$16.50 a share last Thursday and extended the offer period for a third time but said the new offer was final if no rival bids emerged.Despite rising support for the bid, India’s Tata Steel, the world’s No.7 steel maker and Brazil steel maker CSN, remain the key obstacles.The two firms have increased their stakes in Riversdale since the bid and now hold a combined 47 percent.Without their support, Rio needs the support of nearly all minority shareholders of the Africa-focussed miner. However, institutional investors have been reluctant to commit without knowing the two steelmakers’ intentions.Tata, a long-time shareholder in Riversdale, has a director on the board who has backed Rio Tinto’s offer, indicating Tata is not hostile to the bid.Tata Steel Managing Director Hemant Nerurkar has said the company is mainly interested in securing coal supplies from Riversdale.

However, countless others have been affected either physically or emotionally.Late Wednesday night, an explosion from a fire at a fertilizer plant injured more than 150 people and killed between five and 15 others. The blast destroyed or damaged more than 50 homes and several buildings, including a nursing home, intermediate school and grocery store. The impact was strong enough to register a 2.1 earthquake.“It felt like a bomb and sounded like a bomb,” said Joanna Strom, a West resident who is also the parish secretary for St. Paul’s in Waco. “It was like an atom bomb went off. It was insane looking in the sky, like a mushroom cloud. I can’t even describe it to you.Strom, who lives a few miles from the fertilizer plant, knew there was something wrong immediately. Her home was far enough away that it didn’t suffer any damage, but she was concerned about her friends.“I know everyone in West because it’s a small town,” Strom said. “I tried to text everyone I knew. Some of them were OK, and some were unaccounted for. Some people were staying at the local hotel. The problem was that it was total chaos last night. Nobody knew where anybody was, and it was dark.”Soon after the explosion, the power went out in most areas. And soon after that, the cell phone systems were overloaded. Strom resorted to using Facebook to send out updates to her loved ones.On Thursday, her husband dropped her off at work and returned to West to try to search for their friends. If she had not recently broken an ankle, Strom said, she would be out there looking too for the people she considers family.“When I was diagnosed with cancer, that community came together and they did a fundraiser for me,” she said. “I know everybody there. It is very upsetting to me. It’s like they are my family, and I don’t know how they are doing.”The Rev. Chuck Treadwell, rector St. Paul’s, said everyone was accounted for at their church and school. Holy Spirit, Waco, reported that a couple of their families lived in West, but they are ok, although one of the families had to be evacuated. St. Alban’s, Waco, also reported everyone as safe.Calls have flooded churches throughout the diocese with generous and worried Episcopalians eager to help the people of West.“We’re like everyone else, waiting to see how we can respond next,” Treadwell said. “Everybody in Waco is sitting on pins and needles waiting to go to the rescue.”Mark Felton is a St. Paul’s vestry member and also the executive director for the Heart of Texas chapter of the American Red Cross. He advised everyone to donate to the Red Cross. People in the central Texas area are also encourage to donate blood if possible.Additionally, the Diocese of Texas disaster response unit is prepared to take action. Archdeacon Russ Oeschel and the Rev. Gill Keyworth are working on a deployment of the Spiritual Care Teams, which could take place as early as next week.As more information becomes available, the Diocese of Texas will keep everyone informed of the best ways to take action.

Algunos dicen “la solución de la crisis del agua es mercantilizarla”, añadió ella el 23 de marzo durante una sesión sobre “Aguas: bienes comunes o mercancías” durante el evento Justicia del agua,  una conferencia global que tuvo lugar en la iglesia de La Trinidad de Wall Street, en Nueva York, y que se transmitió por la Red al mundo entero, del 22 al 24 de marzo.El Rdo. Brandon Mauai, diácono de la Diócesis de Dakota del Norte y miembro de la reserva de la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta, habló acerca del apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal a la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta en tanto ésta y sus aliados se oponían a la ruta del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas. Foto de Leo Sorel/iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad.La conferencia se propone ofrecer una orientación práctica a individuos y congregaciones y a la comunidad de fe en general en torno a la necesidad de iniciativas de justicia hidráulica en zonas de acceso, sequías, polución, mareas altas e inundaciones. Justicia del Agua es la 46ª. conferencia anual organizada por el Instituto de La Trinidad, otras conferencias anteriores han abordado la justicia racial y la desigualdad económica.Si los Grande Lagos, el mayor sistema de agua potable de la superficie de la tierra, “fuese bombeada tan inmisericordemente como el agua subterránea, se habrían secado en 80 años”, advirtió Barlow.El mar Aral de Rusia, que fuera alguna vez el cuarto lago de agua dulce del mundo, es actualmente el 10 por ciento de su tamaño anterior.  La mitad de las aguas de China, un país rico en aguas, han desaparecido. Sao Paulo, la segunda ciudad más grande del mundo, está afectada por la sequía debido a la rápida destrucción de la selva tropical del Amazonas que ha reducido las nubes de vapor que solían llevar agua al centro y sur del Brasil.Todo esto, dijo Barlow, está sucediendo mientras las corporaciones, los gobiernos y el Banco Mundial contemplan un mercado mundial de aguas, en el cual las aguas del futuro puedan venderse como el petróleo y el gas.“¿Es [el agua] un derecho humano, un bien público o un recurso privado?, preguntó Barlow.“Tenemos que protegerla celosamente en todas partes como un bien común”, dijo ella. “El agua no debe ponerse en el mercado. Eso no significa que el sector privado no tenga un papel a desempeñar. Pero la pregunta fundamental es quién es dueño del agua, y quién tiene acceso a ella y quien no, y en algunos lugares del mundo ahora mismo esta es una situación de vida o muerte”.La [Organización de] Naciones Unidas dice que el agua es un derecho humano, y Barlow fue decisiva en hacer que la organización intergubernamental tomara esa determinación. El 28 de julio de 2010, la Asamblea General de la ONU reconoció el derecho humano al agua y al saneamiento y reconoció que el acceso a ambos es “esencial para la realización de todos los derechos humanos”. La resolución fue aprobada con el voto a favor de 122 naciones, ninguno en contra y 41 abstenciones, entre estas Estados Unidos y Canadá. (tanto EE.UU. como Canadá adoptaron posteriormente la resolución).Sin embargo, decir que el agua es un derecho humano no significa que esté protegida o que todo el mundo tenga acceso a ella. Como ejemplos, Barlow mencionó a Detroit y Baltimore, dos ciudades que han cerrados los grifos de sus vecinos.En Detroit, las tarifas del agua de los residentes de barrios urbanos deprimidos y económicamente insolventes se triplicó y muchas personas pobres no podían pagar sus facturas del agua; en Baltimore, los funcionarios municipales sostenían que era necesario tener un sistema en el cual todo el mundo pagara “su parte equitativa”.Como señalara Christiana Zenner Peppard —profesora de la Universidad de Fordham, teóloga y experta en agua potable— en su respuesta a la plática de Barlow, un ser humano puede sobrevivir menos de siete días sin agua.“El agua no es reemplazable por ninguna otra cosa;  es el punto de partida para el sistema humano, ecológico y planetario”, apuntó ella.  “Uno no puede hablar de agua y de justicia como dos cosas separadas”.En términos de valores religiosos y de ética del agua, “es fundacional para la vida y entendida como finita”, y al menos desde el punto de vista cristiano, el acceso al agua es cuidar de “los hermanos más pequeños”.La Iglesia Católica Romana ha sido defensora del agua como un derecho humano desde los primeros años de este siglo; en su encíclica sobre el medioambiente, el papa Francisco dijo que el agua no debía mercantilizarse.La crisis mundial del agua se manifiesta de muchas maneras, desde crecidas hasta sequías, desde aguas contaminadas por toxinas a la proximidad de una fuente de agua potable. Luego de la charla de Barlow y de la respuesta de Peppard, el público de La Trinidad oyó tres testimonios de personas que viven en los frentes de tres diferentes crisis hidráulicas.Tres años después de la crisis del agua en Flint, Michigan, los vecinos siguen dependiendo de agua embotellada para beber y para sus necesidades higiénicas, dijo Nakiya Wakes, activista y portavoz de Flint Rising, una coalición de organizaciones comunitarias que prepara a los residentes de Flint para un largo recorrido.En abril de 2014, bajo el liderazgo de un gestor de emergencia y con vistas a ahorrar $5 millones, cambiaron el suministro de agua de la ciudad del lago Hurón a través del acueducto municipal de Detroit, para el río Flint, una fuente más corrosiva. Al mismo tiempo, el gestor de emergencia, buscando ahorrar $100 por día, ordenó que el agua no se tratara con una substancia química para impedir que el plomo pasara de las viejas cañerías de la ciudad al agua que corría por ellas destinada a los vecinos. Según el New York Times, el estado le dijo, por error, a los funcionarios de Flint que las normas federales no exigían el tratamiento del agua.Casi inmediatamente después del cambio, los vecinos empezaron a quejarse del color, el sabor y el olor del agua y de irritaciones en la piel causadas al bañarse con ella, y no obstante los funcionarios del gobierno seguían defendiendo la calidad del agua. No fue hasta enero de 2016 que se declaró un estado de emergencia federal y que les dijeron a los vecinos que usaran sólo agua embotellada o filtrada para beber o bañarse.Cuando todavía bebía agua de la llave, Wakes  sufrió un aborto involuntario de mellizos, contó ella, y tanto su hijo como su hija tienen elevados niveles de plomo en sus cuerpos; a la hija se le empezó a caer el pelo y el varón ha tenido problemas de conducta, y ambos tuvieron erupciones en la piel.“Nos han mentido por demasiado tiempo y no confiamos en nuestro gobierno”, dijo ella. “Tres años más tarde estamos bebiendo agua embotellada…no tenemos acceso a agua potable en Estados Unidos de América. Llamaron a Michigan “puro” y estamos siendo puro envenenados”El Rdo. Brandon Mauai, diácono de la Diócesis de Dakota del Norte y miembro de la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] se refirió al apoyo de la Iglesia Episcopal  a la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta en tanto ella y sus aliados se oponían a la ruta a seguir por el Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas. El oleoducto, de 1824 kilómetros, pasaba originalmente cerca de Bismarck, Dakota del Norte, pero le cambiaron la ruta después que los vecinos expresaran su preocupación de que un accidente pudiera contaminar el agua potable de la ciudad. En lugar de esto, el oleoducto cruza por debajo del río Misurí, a la altura del lago Oahe, un embalse que proporciona el agua para la reserva de Roca Enhiesta y otros sitios río abajo.En septiembre de 2016, funcionarios federales paralizaron la construcción del oleoducto en terrenos limítrofes al lago Oahe, o debajo del mismo, el cual pertenece al Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU., la agencia federal responsable de otorgar permiso de obras en tierras y vías fluviales públicas. En diciembre, el presidente Barack Obama bloqueó la construcción en el segmento en disputa del oleoducto.En una de sus primeras decisiones luego de que tomara posesión, el presidente Donald Trump dio instrucciones al Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de que adelantara la evaluación medioambiental del oleoducto para apresurar el proceso. El 8 de febrero, el Cuerpo de Ingenieros le dio permiso a la compañía para continuar la construcción.Se espera que el petróleo fluya a través del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas este fin de semana, dijo Mauai, en una conversación con Episcopal News Service luego de la sesión de la mañana.“Eso realmente nos desmoralizó en Roca Enhiesta”, dijo Mauai. “Pero espero que esta conferencia creará conciencia a través del mundo porque esto no está sucediendo tan sólo en Roca Enhiesta, hay otros lugares donde también ocurre, en Navajolandia y en otras reservas en Estados Unidos. Y yo espero que Roca Enhiesta causará una impresión, que la gente va a decir ‘bien, esto es una enormidad, porque se trata de una amenaza a la fuente de agua de una tribu y los que la rodean’”.No obstante, aun si el petróleo fluye por el oleoducto, la historia no se ha acabado, dijo Mauai.“Seguiremos hablándole a todo el que nos quiera oír. La Iglesia continuará asumiendo un papel activo, hemos estado activos en poner orden … seguiremos adelante dondequiera que la tribu nos necesite como Iglesia allí estaremos para ayudar en lo que podamos”, afirmó.Miles de episcopales participaron, en apoyo de la Nación Sioux, en la reciente marcha y concentración Naciones Nativas en Pie que tuvo lugar en Washington, D.C. el 10 de marzo.El arzobispo Winston Halapua, uno de los tres primados de la Iglesia Anglicana en Polinesia y Aotearoa Nueva Zelanda, responsable de las congregaciones samoanas, tonganas, indofiyiana y fiyiana con sede en Nueva Zelanda, habló acerca de su niñez y adolescencia en Tonga, donde su vida estaba en sincronía con el ciclo de la marea.El aumento del nivel del mar sigue reclamando islas enteras en el Pacífico, donde la Iglesia Anglicana de Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia está estableciendo una “clara estrategia de resistencia” para fortalecer su respuesta ante futuros desastres naturales en las islas del Pacífico.“El agua es un reflejo de Dios; ustedes y yo no vivimos sin agua”, dijo Halapua.–  Lynette Wilson es redactora/reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

ELAM: Is this the home stretch?

Previous articlePBALC Summer classesNext articleLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Huge thanks Dennis Elam Facebook Dennis Elam is an associate professor at Texas A&M San Antonio and a 1966 graduate of Andrews High School and blogs at https://professorelam.typepad.com/markets/ Wall Street aims for 2 Day Win Streak Amid Inflation FearsYahoo finance Friday morningCrude oil has been tracing out what appears for be a topping pattern since early March. Pent up demand drove price from the November low of $35 to $67.50. Price dipped ten dollars and is now back to $63.38.  That is up $1.44 from the Thursday close. But momentum indicators are falling.  On balance volume has topped.  Momentum oscillators are much lower now than where they were during March.The Energy ETF XLE made a slightly higher high this month than in March. That is no doubt to continued stock market enthusiasm.  Energy Service ETF XES is much weaker which is not a good sign. It peaked at $65 in March and then fell to $47.50. After a rise to $60 it is falling again to $57.But the DJIA is up 258 points this morning after its two week correction. This momentum will likely carry the overall stock market to a slight new high in June.Team Biden wants all of us to drive an electric car. Apparently this administration thinks energy is free and easy if supplied to an electric car rather than a combustion engine. We just experienced a crack in the electric grid with a snow fall in Texas that would have been ignored in say Chicago. Here in San Antonio CPS Energy says the natural gas suppliers are playing hardball. The suppliers note CPS is not paying the bill. Is this really the right backdrop for eliminating gasoline power cars and trucks? President Biden was given a ride in a Ford electric pick-up.Ford claims a 300-mile range a $50,000 price tag, and 563 horsepower.  But frankly I like my eleven year old paid for SUV just fine. A $50 K electric is not on my horizon.  I still think short distance electric vehicles adapted from say a Kawasaki Mule would make a lot more sense. Use the IC car which can be easily re-fueled to drive outside the city.Social mood continues to veer negative. It appears the multi-trillion dollar Biden stimulus package will fail. San Antonio is plastered with Help Wanted signs as previous workers enjoy Federal payments. Stephen Moore’s prediction of several million not working may already be upon us.

As the pieces started to fall into place, one suspect after the other was eliminated.”Whoever killed Stokes had to be either strong enough to overcome him or cowardly enough to sneak in behind him, Colvin said. Several of the detectives thought two people were involved. Jamie Stokes, a highly touted soccer player at the fictional Huntington High School, was found dead at the school on Thursday. The time and cause of death were not known, but the crime was immediately listed as a homicide.And the investigation began at the Troy Public Library, where three dozen participants in the annual murder mystery event sleuthed for clues to Stokes’ death.center_img By The Penny Hoarder Detectives from the investigative firm TPL (Truth, Pleas and Lies) in Troy were brought to the high school to secure and search the crime scene for clues to the grizzly murder. Eight persons of interest were identified by chief investigator, Hunt M. Down and interrogated by Pike County Judge William Hightower, who is known to be ruthless in his efforts to get the truth from suspects.Teresa Colvin of TPL Children and Youth Services, said the suspects included the soccer player’s ex-girlfriend, a romantic interest of the murdered student, a soccer teammate, his high school soccer coach, the coach of a rival team, the school guidance counselor, an older brother and also his step dad.“Initially the interrogation eliminated several of the suspects,” Colvin said. “Judge Hightower had several of the suspects totally confused and their stories changed over and over. The detectives secured three scenes that held possible clues to the crime, the young soccer player’s bedroom, the coach’s office and the crime scene. However, Detective Clayton Suell said motive and means would solve the crime and it did.“Detective Suell found that Coach Wynn Alcost had both the motive and the means to kill his star soccer player,” Colvin said. “The Huntington Raiders were set to win the state soccer championship in the fall on the foot of Jamie Stokes. When, Coach Wynn Alcost learned that Jamie was going to transfer to a local private school, he knew that his chance at a coveted state championship would be gone.”He knew, too, his coaching career would be over if he let Jamie and the championship elude the Raider faithful.“So, Coach Wynn Alcost killed Jamie thinking that his murder would be thought as the reason for the losing season, not because he let his star player get away,” Colvin said.Suell was congratulated for identifying the killer of Jamie Stokes. He will be a key witness in the coach’s trial along with the 35 others who participate in the Murder Mystery Lock-in at the Troy Public Library Thursday night.

The schemeemphasises the need to manage teams more effectively to achieve higher levelsof customer care.

The coach,appointed from an outside suppliers, will visit the manager on site every sixweeks for up to two years, enabling learning to be gained on the job throughcoaching and mentoring. The coaching will be backed up with computer-basedlearning and so minimising the time managers spend away from the workplace. A pilot scheme on the process has just been run with 16 dealer managers. Project manager Sue Bradshaw said: “We aim to encourage all our dealermanagers to participate in the new management development process over the nextfew years and enjoy the personal and commercial advantages it can bring. “All managers will also have the option to obtain a Certificate ofManagement Studies which will be recognised both within and outside the motorindustry. “The key benefits will be an improved calibre of management leading toa higher level of sales, increased customer service levels and enhanced jobsatisfaction while reducing staff turnover.” There are around 350 Peugeot dealers nationwide.
