Heritage Oil in buyback worth $100m

first_imgTuesday 26 April 2011 7:45 pm Heritage Oil in buyback worth $100m KCS-content UK OIL explorer Heritage Oil is planning a share buyback worth $100m (£60m), following a difficult few months for the company, which has seen its share price plummet and rival Tullow Oil launch a £313m lawsuit.Explorers rarely engage in buybacks because their business model usually involves spending their cash on finding new fields.“The recent share price performance following the discovery of the Miran gas field in Kurdistan neither reflects the underlying value of the assets nor our belief in the longer term prospects of the company,” said Heritage.Investors were disappointed earlier in the year when it transpired a big discovery Heritage made in Iraq contained a lot of gas.Though the Miran site is one of the largest gas fields to be discovered in Iraq, it is much harder to drill than oil, and the news saw Heritage’s share price fall 29 per cent to 310p. The shares recovered slightly earlier this month on reports that Heritage could be the target of a takeover bid from an unnamed buyer in Abu Dhabi. The FTSE 250-listed firm is believed to have turned down an offer that valued the company at £1.2bn, or 425p per share. Tullow Oil is suing its former partner in Uganda to recover $313m that Tullow paid to cover tax on fields it bought from Heritage.Uganda said Heritage was liable for capital gains taxes on the sale, which Heritage denies.Tullow paid the Ugandan government the $313m to secure approval of the change in field ownership, and is now seeking to get the money back from Heritage through the High Court in London.

As the doughnut graph shows, 66% of mobile revenues come from betting.Interestingly, while by region Europe takes the bulk of global mobile revenues, Asia/Middle East has a higher percentage of its region’s gross win coming from mobile. This is likely to be due to the fact that in some countries, particularly those in Asia, fixed line broadband was slow to develop and many users skipped desktop altogether and adopted mobile as their first internet device. H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team. The company has a track record of nearly 15 years focused on the global gambling industry, its projections have been influential in shaping legislators’  and investors’ views of the gambling sector across the globe.

Open letter to Jacques Rogge, President of International Olympic Committee

first_imgNews November 29, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to Jacques Rogge, President of International Olympic Committee RSF_en ChinaAsia – Pacific News Open letter News Follow the news on China Receive email alerts to go further March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific center_img Mr. Jacques RoggePresidentInternational Olympic CommitteeLausanne, SwitzerlandParis, 29 November 2007Dear Mr. Rogge,We are receiving extremely disturbing reports from China about the way the authorities are preparing for the arrival of tens of thousands for journalists and media workers for the Beijing Olympic Games.It is becoming clearer and clearer that the organisers of the Beijing Olympics and the Chinese security apparatus have decided to control journalists very closely before and during the games. The authorities said, for example, that they were planning to compile files on journalists and reserved the right to turn them back even if they were accredited by National Olympic Committees.You must be aware that the games organisers announced that they were going to conduct ID checks on all accredited journalists. Yang Minghui, the deputy head of the games accreditation office, defended this decision as a security requirement, as if journalists could pose a threat or be potential terrorists. “If they do not pass the tests, their accreditation requests will be refused and the process will stop there,” he said, adding that “the aim is to eliminate people who pose problems for the security of the games.”Other Olympic cities compiled files on journalists in the past, but this was for organisational purposes and never with the intention of refusing entry on grounds which – as everyone must realize in the case of Beijing – are political.The announcement followed an earlier one by the General Administration of Press and Publications (GAPP) that it was going to compile files on the approximately 30,000 journalists coming to the games. A GAPP representative said the purpose was to identify “fake journalists” and to help Chinese officials respond to interview requests. But the government has not said what kind of information will be gathered.In recent months, there have been several leaks in the media about the instructions given to the public security and state security departments as regards identifying groups in China and abroad that are likely to want to demonstrate during the games. Journalists could also be targeted by this preventive surveillance and it is possible that hundreds of people will be banned from entering China.Reporters Without Borders hailed the adoption of new rules for the foreign press last January. But, 11 months later, the results are negative. It is true that the foreign ministry has in some cases tried to help foreign journalists who had been detained or attacked, but we have registered more than 50 cases clearly showing that the authorities are not respecting the new rules.Barbara Lüthi, the Beijing correspondent of the Swiss TV channel Schweizer Fernsehen, and her Chinese camerawoman were, for example, recently hit and detained for seven hours by the authorities in Shengyou, a village in Hebei province where unrest led to the deaths of several residents in 2005. At least five foreign journalists have been prevented from working in this village, located near Beijing, in recent months.Mathias Brascheler and Monika Fisher, a Swiss husband-and-wife team of photographers, were recently detained for three hours in Wuchang, in Hubei province, while preparing a report on villagers who had been threatened and beaten in connection with a land dispute.Even more serious is the fact that Chinese journalists and dissidents continue to fall victim to repression. For example, cyber-dissident Yang Maodong, who is better known by the pseudonym of Guo Feixiong, was sentenced to five years in prison and a heavy fine in mid-November for publishing a book without permission. Cyber-dissident and blogger He Weihua was confined against his will to a psychiatric hospital in Hunan in August. Relatives told Reporters Without Borders he has no mental illness whatsoever and that the real reason for this measure was the articles he had posted on his blog, www.boxun.com/hero/hewh/. In all, about 100 journalists, cyber-dissidents and human rights activists are currently detained in China.Human rights organisations are noting an increase in political repression. According to the Dui Hua Foundation, the number of trials on a charge of “jeopardising state security” has doubled from last year to this. Quoting officials sources, the foundations says no fewer than 600 people have arrested on this charge.As you know, those targeted also include people who provide the outside world with information about political repression. Three Tibetans have just been sentenced by a court in Kardze, in Sichuan province (adjoining Tibet), to prison sentences ranging from three to ten years for “espionage for foreign organisations endangering state security.” Their crime was to have sent abroad photos of demonstrations by Tibetan nomads in early August.We also deplore the often disturbing level of propaganda and nationalist fervour surrounding the preparations for the Olympic Games. On 19 November, for example, the government newspaper Huanqiu Shibao (Global Times) attacked foreign news media that “spread rumours to destabilise the government,” citing the Washington Post, the International Herald Tribune, Die Welt, Associated Press and Voice of America. Mentioning Reporters Without Borders, it also criticised NGOs that keep relaying “prejudices” about China.Similarly, in the past month the Propaganda Department sent a written directive to the leading Chinese news media asking them to avoid publishing “negative” stories on matters affecting the games such as air pollution, a dispute over Taiwan’s inclusion in the Olympic torch relay, and public health issues.It was expected that the foreign news media would be allowed greater access to the Chinese market before the Olympic Games. Instead, the government has maintained its monopoly of the sale of news to Chinese media, depriving foreign news agencies of potential clients. In response to questions by the European Union, Canada, Japan and the United States before the Word Trade Organisation, China said on 12 November that it had not signed any provision requiring it to open up the business news market. When the state news agency Xinhua’s control over the distribution of foreign news agency content was reinforced in September 2006, we described Xinhua as a predator of free enterprise and the freedom to report the news.This is not the first time that we have written to you, Mr. Rogge, to ask you to speak out and take action on behalf of press freedom in China. You have never replied directly, letting other IOC members argue that your organisation does not concern itself with political matters. We have met IOC officials in Lausanne, but no concrete measures for the press ensued.The organisation you head is constantly trumpeting the progress being made with the work on the Beijing games infrastructure but it has not made any public statement of concern about the lack of freedom of expression, which will undermine the work of the media and the transparency that is needed for the games.Mr. Rogge, it is your silence that has unfortunately made all these abuses possible. We continue to think that the IOC should do everything it can to influence the policies of the Beijing games organisers towards Chinese and foreign journalists. A failure to rise to this key challenge would represent an enormous setback in the history of the Olympic movement.I look forward to your reply.Sincerely,Robert MénardSecretary-General April 27, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes June 2, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Reporters Without Borders has written to International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge to alert him about recent measures by the organisers of the Beijing Olympics to vet and compile files on foreign journalists who are accredited to cover the games.

Lima Jr. to see that police and the army recaptured suspect Guillermo Wapille, a former policeman, who escaped from the police camp at Pagadian (Mindanao island) on 1 February and to investigate how he escaped. Since then, two witnesses of the murder, who gave evidence against him, and the journalist’s family have received death threats.It also repeated its call for the arrest of the reported brains behind the killing, former local police chief Asuri Hawani. Local journalists’ organisations have denounced the failure of the authorities to act.Wapille was held at Camp Abelon, in Pagadian, under the responsibility of the local police chief, Pedrito Reyes. Police said he escaped on 1 February and Damalerio’s associates said he was probably still in the area.Since then, two people who gave evidence against him have received death threats, including Edgar Amoro, who was with Damalerio in a car when he was shot. His widow Gemma, who has been in hiding for several months, has also been threatened and fears reprisals against the family. She also fears Wapille will not be recaptured before the expiry on 10 February of the arrest warrant issued on 30 January by Pagadian regional court judge Franklyn Villegas.

Housing Outlook for 2016: Higher Home Sales and Prices, Falling Refi Volumes

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Housing Outlook for 2016: Higher Home Sales and Prices, Falling Refi Volumes The year 2016 is expected to usher in the creation of 1.25 million new households, higher rental demand, increased home sales, and a rise in home purchase loan originations even as refinancing volume plummets, CoreLogic’s Chief Economist predicted Monday.Dr. Frank Nothaft, senior vice president and chief economist at CoreLogic, released his 2016 Outlook for Housing. The signature report offers viewers a few twists, turns and apparent contradictions.For starters, Nothaft estimates dollar volumes for single-family mortgage originations will plummet 10% despite his prediction of a significant rise in home equity lending and home purchase loan originations.Still, he says, an uptick in those areas will be offset by a 34 percent decline in refinancing activity as mortgage rates rise, scaring off homeowners who have yet to refinance their existing mortgages.At the same time, multifamily originations will continue to grow considering rental vacancy rates are now at or near their lowest levels in 20 years, Nothaft noted in his report.The economist expects demand for apartments and houses to rise significantly in 2016 as younger households take form.Meanwhile, interest rates will move higher on a gradual basis, causing adjustable-rate mortgage holders to see notable increases in interest rates at a time when the Federal Reserve is expected to raise short-term rates one percentage point between now and the end of 2016, Nothaft says.As for fixed-rate mortgages, Nothaft estimates a one-half of a percentage point rise between now and the end of 2016, with a forecast of 4.5 percent on the 30-year loan.As for home sales and home prices, Nothaft expects both economic fundamentals to experience increases next year. He even predicts the CoreLogic Home Price Index will rise 4 to 5 percebt in 2016 as consumers experience the benefits of an improved economy and financial stability.”As we approach the start of 2016, the consensus view among economists is that economic growth will continue, and the U.S. will enter an eighth consecutive year of expansion in the second half of next year,” Nothaft reported. “Most forecasts place growth at 2 and 3 percent during 2016, creating enough jobs to exert downward pressure on the national unemployment rate.” December 7, 2015 2,047 Views Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Kerri Panchuk Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Kerri Panchuk is an attorney and financial writer with more than a decade of experience covering real estate, default servicing, residential mortgage-backed securities, retail, macroeconomics, and commercial real estate.

She began quilting in 1979 and is now famous for her signature picture quilts, which often include Biblical and civil rights themes.Richard Metzger, Johnson Center for the Arts executive director, said he is extremely pleased for the arts center to host such a renowned quilt exhibit.“Not only does the exhibit include quilts by highly acclaimed artist Yvonne Wells, it also includes quilts by the Gee’s Bend quilters,” he said. “It is an extraordinary exhibit and we are fortunate to have it here in Troy.” Print Article The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Docents have been schooled on the art of quilt making and the “story quilts” in the exhibit.“Their knowledge of the quilts and the process will make a tour of the quilt exhibit an interesting and educational experience for everyone,” Metzger said.Susan Berry and Joyce Conrad are two of the docents who will lead tours and both said they are impressed by the exhibit.“There is a tremendous amount of folklore associated with quilts and with the exhibit,” Conrad said. “We are looking forward to sharing what we have learned with visitors to the Johnson Center for the Arts.”Wiley White, Center development director, said teachers are encouraged to make a field trip to the Johnson Center for the Art a “must” for their students.“These quilts are lessons in history, math, design and storytelling and are lessons waiting to be learned,” she said.Museum hours are 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 1 until 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission to the Johnson Center for the Arts is always free. Latest Stories Quilts are pictured in many ways in the minds of those who found close comfort in them. So, “Just How I Picture It in My Mind” is a fitting title of the quilt exhibition that opened at the Johnson Center for the Arts in Troy on Jan. 15.The 16-quilt exhibit is a selection of African American quilts on loan from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Kempf Hogan Collection.The exhibit pays homage to the place that quilts have held in our society and family traditions.
