WHEN you’re trying to build up a franchise in mergers and acquisitions, there’s nothing better than being signed up to work on one of the biggest deals in town.So naturally Barclays Capital and RBC Capital Markets were as pleased as punch to be advising the London Stock Exchange on its £4.3bn merger with Canada’s TMX. (Note that the long-term corporate brokers JP Morgan Cazenove and Nomura are not working on the transaction).Barclays Capital has been quietly picking up corporate broking mandates and recently hired Richard Taylor from Bank of America Merrill Lynch to join a team that already includes former Morgan Stanleyite Mark Warham and Matthew Ponsonby.Last year BarCap advised on Resolution’s bid for Friends Provident where it worked on the transaction with RBC Capital Markets, which is fast gaining a reputation for being one of the most aggressive hiring banks in town, as well as one of the more innovative. Some view the Royal Bank of Canada-owned firm as the Manchester City of the financial markets, with rival firms often unable or unwilling to match the pay packages on offer to potential joiners.The experienced player on the deal though is Morgan Stanley and its involvement underlines a significant return to form for a bank which suffered in the immediate aftermath of the credit crunch and was only stabilised in 2008 after Mitsubishi bought a 21 per cent supportive shareholding. Morgan Stanley had an enormously successful 2010, advising on the BSkyB News Corp deal, Sanofi Genzyme deal and International Power GDF Suez deal, to name but a few. Its LSE team includes Simon Robey, one of the doyens of the UK investment banking scene, Chris Carter (who is originally from Toronto), Matthew Jarman and Dougal McDonald.CHAUCER’S TALEA niche advisory firm, Willis Capital Markets and Advisory Services, has been selected to advise the Lloyd’s insurance broking group Chaucer – valued at around £350m – in its response to bid approaches.Willis, which is working alongside financial adviser Kinmont, won the gig after giving Chaucer some specific unrelated advice ahead of the recent approach from Guy Hands’ Terra Firma. Lexicon drops out of the team. Former Bank of America Merrill Lynch man Tony Ursano leads Willis.

On an annual basis, the increase was 6.6 per cent, marginally greater than the expected 6.4 per cent.But conditions in peripheral nations such as in Portugal and Ireland declined, with Portugal’s manufacturing falling by 4.2 per cent.Howard Archer, chief economist at Global Insight, described the growth as “solid if unspectacular”. “Eurozone industrial production was somewhat distorted over December 2010 and January 2011 by severe weather in December in some countries hitting manufacturing output but boosting energy output,” he said.“Looking through these distortions, the underlying performance of the eurozone manufacturing sector clearly remains robust at the moment.”Markit chief economist Chris Williamson said he expected the rate of growth “to improve markedly” in February but warned that global events such as the tsunami in Japan would affect global progress.December’s figures were revised up significantly to show a gain of 0.3 per cent month-on-month from a previous 0.1 per cent fall and to an annual rise of 8.8 per cent from eight per cent.The revision suggested the cold snap had not hampered activity as much as initially thought. Of ten eurozone countries for which data was available, production rose in Estonia, France, Germany, Malta, Slovakia and Spain and fell in Finland, Ireland, Italy and Portugal. alison.lock whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Share Monday 14 March 2011 9:22 am

Preparación para el bautismo en la vigilia de la pascua y es una época de solidaridad con aquellos que están siendo formados para ser discípulos de Jesús y misioneros en la misión de Dios.Nosotros formamos personas en el sentido que Dios sueña de un mundo sano, un mundo restaurado con paz y justicia, y algunas de las imagines antiguas de ese mundo sano son las de los profetas. Una de los famosos de Isaías, es una imagen de las personas en un día de campo en la ladera de la montaña, disfrutando una buena comida y un buen vino. Esa imagen de ser bien alimentado es especialmente emotiva en un mundo como el nuestro donde hay muchos que tienen hambre.La cuaresma es un tiempo donde nosotros oramos, ayunamos, estudiamos y damos limosna. Es una época de solidaridad y es especialmente una época para ser solidarios con los más humildes.Al prepararse para la cuaresma y para su disciplina cuaresmal, me gustaría alentarle a que usted piense sobre la consciencia de comer. Eso es realmente más que ayunar y dejar de comer chocolate. Es estar consciente de lo que come, unirse en solidaridad con aquellos que tienen hambre, ya sea de comida, o de albergue, o que tienen hambre de paz, dignidad o reconocimiento, o de amor.Cuando nos unimos en solidaridad en términos de comer, deberíamos considerar lo que comemos y como lo estamos comiendo y con quién estamos comiendo, y me gustaría invitarle a que considere algunos de los retos que existen alrededor de nosotros. Muchos líderes en esta parte de la Iglesia de los Estados Unidos han participado en un acto de solidaridad con los pobres tratando de vivir con presupuestos de cupones de alimentos por una semana. Eso es alrededor de $4 diario por persona. Y es muy difícil encontrar las calorías adecuadas y alimentos razonablemente nutritivos con esa clase de presupuesto. Pero esto sería un acto de solidaridad con aquellos que se la pasan sin comer cada día y cada semana. Un acto de solidaridad como ese podría aumentar su consciencia sobre aquellos que tienen hambre, podría aumentar su propia consciencia sobre lo que usted come, y podría proveer una oportunidad para que comparta algo de su generosidad, algo que guarda de lo que comió con aquellos que no comen.La violencia en nuestro país, y alrededor del mundo es con frecuencia un acto en respuesta a aquellos que no tienen lo suficiente. Aquellos que tienen hambre, aquellos que anhelan el reconocimiento y la dignidad, y aquellos que luchan por la paz.Su preparación y la mía para el gran festival de la Pascua puede ser un acto de solidaridad con los más humildes de estos. Al participar en esta cuaresma, le aliento para que ore, ayune, y actúe en solidaridad con aquellos que no tienen. Aprenda más, dé su limosna, comparta lo que tiene. Sea consciente de lo que come.Que tenga una dichosa y bendecida cuaresma este año.La Rvdma.

Unloaded ships.News broke on Feb. 20 that an agreement between the Pacific Maritime Association — the organization of the West Coast port bosses — and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union would allow full-time work to unload a two-month backup of shipping pending a ratification vote of the union. The PMA had imposed mini lockouts for the past months on the union in an attempt to win a contract that left workers at a disadvantage. But the battle is still on.In Oakland, Calif., once again the bosses caused critically backed-up port work to stop, forcing 300 workers — everyone working that shift — to go home for the day on Feb. 22, while blaming ILWU Local 10 members for the stoppage.To find out the truth about what was happening in Oakland — which processes 10 percent of the $2 trillion in goods loaded and unloaded on the West Coast each year — Workers World spoke with Trent Willis, former president and business agent of Local 10 with 22 years experience on the docks. Willis is also the originator of the 2004 Million Worker March in Washington, D.C.Willis made it very clear that ILWU members did not walk off the job on Feb. 22, as was widely reported; in fact, they were “fired” by the Pacific Maritime Association. ILWU Local 10 has a well-earned reputation as a progressive local that has played an important role in political struggles such as the historic battle to end apartheid in South Africa.Despite a tentative agreement announced Feb. 20, the PMA sacrificed fully three-fourths of Sunday production in Oakland when it “fired” all day shift longshore workers — including Willis. Instead of calling out the PMA for stopping work, an area arbitrator that Willis identified as Terry Lane did just the opposite: He immediately approved the bosses’ action.Lane, who was formerly a vice-president of the Pacific Maritime Association, is notorious for his pro-boss decisions. He is due to be replaced as an arbitrator in the proposed contract.KTVU reported, “In a statement the Pacific Maritime Association said ‘an area arbitrator’ ruled the unit breaks, ‘illegal work stoppages,’ resulting in port operations being shut down’ during the day shift.” (tinyurl.com/nec8cnq)Willis explained that Local 10 members also attempted to get back to work after the tentative agreement. “We were told over the radio that if we took a unit break we would all be fired,” explained Willis, “even though that’s what it says to do in our contract.”The PMA wants the workers to take their break one at a time, what it calls “tag relief.” But according to the contract, to assure continuous operation during breaks, the PMA must request additional workers to be on hand. According to Willis, it was these additional workers who were sent home first, leaving the workers with a unit break as the only reasonable option that honored the contract.‘Firing’ tactic caused shipping crisisThe most recent contract expired last July 1. After stonewalling negotiations with the ILWU, the PMA began this “firing” tactic last fall, according to rank-and-file ILWU members. The bosses then blamed port workers for the shipping crisis affecting everything from auto parts and agriculture to Mardi Gras beads. Thus, the PMA created the shipping crisis, first by not negotiating a contract with the ILWU before the expiration date, then “firing” crews and finally by ending night shifts, along with weekend and holiday work, for which workers get higher hourly pay.Willis further explained that the way the PMA used the area arbitrator — Lane — in the Feb. 22 conflict at Oakland also violated past practice. Contractually, when there is a dispute on the job, the PMA and ILWU representatives come to the site and attempt to settle the issue. If it is unresolved after this attempt, only then is the area arbitrator called for a ruling, based on the written contract. Either side can then appeal that ruling to the coast arbitrator responsible for all West Coast ports, who makes a final decision. On Feb. 22, the arbitrator ruled after workers were sent home.The necessity for impartial area arbitrators was a major issue in these contract negotiations because Lane and other arbitrators took it upon themselves to unilaterally rewrite the agreed upon contract language in favor of the PMA, even on important health and safety issues.The tentative agreement announced Feb. 20 after intervention by Obama administration Labor Secretary Tom Perez has not yet been discussed or ratified by the ILWU’s 13,000 members at 29 West Coast ports.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
A lot of words in the corporate media this week have been devoted to remembering Sept. 11, 2001. That attack has served as a pretext for U.S. aggression ever since.But there was another Sept. 11 — seldom mentioned. On Sept. 11, 1973, generals in Chile working with the CIA carried out a military coup to overthrow the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende. What followed was the brutal torture and assassination of thousands of progressives in the country, including the president.Now Washington is threatening a direct invasion of Venezuela.In May, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro said that top U.S. diplomats were engaged in a military conspiracy against his country. Maduro’s charges were roundly dismissed by both the U.S. administration and the billionaire media.Until Sept. 9.Then the New York Times finally admitted the U.S. plan for regime change in an article headlined: “Trump administration discussed coup plans with rebel Venezuelan officers.”The Times ran this story, not to warn the people of Venezuela, but to criticize the Maduro administration, which it considers dangerous to strategic U.S. imperialist interests.The Times spreads its own vicious propaganda against President Maduro and his country’s attempts to be free of U.S. domination. It continually blames the Bolivarian government for economic difficulties in Venezuela without mentioning the full-press sabotage by U.S. and Western European imperialism.Max Weisbrot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research has filled in what the Times omits — stressing that the U.S. economic war on Venezuela is behind the country’s current depression. In early 2017 Washington began imposing sanctions against Venezuela, including freezing the country’s billions of dollars in U.S. accounts.Weisbrot notes that “with Trump’s [recent] executive order, even if Venezuela were to stabilize the exchange rate and return to growth, it would be cut off from borrowing, investment, and proprietary sources of income such as dividend payments from Venezuela-owned but U.S.-based Citgo Petroleum.” (The Nation, Sept. 7, 2017)The Venezuelan oligarchs hate that Maduro is a former bus driver. They hated Venezuela’s late revolutionary President Hugo Chávez for siding with the poor and oppressed. They prefer the people they exploit and oppress to remain subservient. So do their U.S. imperialist masters.Since the right-wing parties in Venezuela that represent the rich are completely discredited and disgraced among the people, U.S. imperialism has to consider a more direct intervention.The Times article said that for the last two years high-ranking U.S. diplomats have been meeting with Venezuelan military officers to discuss a military rebellion and the extent of U.S. military support. Is this an admission — or a threat?Whatever the details, the record of U.S. interventions south of the border makes the overall message believable: The U.S. has intervened in Haiti starting in 1804, in Cuba, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Guatemala and Mexico — not to mention most of South America. This includes training Latin American officers in the U.S. in torture techniques, along with direct U.S. invasions.Despite the country’s crisis, however, the Venezuelan military — both the officers and now the politicized rank-and-file troops — have in their great majority remained loyal to the democratically elected president.And the working people of Venezuela continue to affirm their belief that the development of the Bolivarian Revolution is the path to a better future. In the May presidential election, Maduro won a new six-year term in a landslide, with three times the votes of the next candidate.What lessons are we workers in the U.S. to take from this struggle?That capitalism will do anything — lie, cheat, rape, conspire, invade, plunder and murder — to keep its profits and its system in the ascendancy.Our solidarity and our hope remain with the international struggle of the workers — a struggle that has no borders.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

A century ago geologists first began to consider the possibility of large lateral shifts of the continents. Reconstructions of the ancient positions of the continents have been proposed at various times since to try to explain past climatic zones, faunal distributions, similar orogenic sequences and structural trends on adjacent continents, and many other detailed geological events. Prominent amongst the hypotheses is that generally known as the Continental Drift Hypothesis, developed independently by F. B. Taylor and A. Wegener fifty years ago and later modified by A. L. du Toit andothers. In this hypothesis two primeval continents, Laurasia and Gondwanaland, are supposed to have formed at the north and south poles, to have broken up and possibly to have grown, and the pieces to have drifted to the positions of the present continents. The continents are moved around by forces of unknown origin and their interaction with each other and with the substratum gives rise to orogenesis. Due in large part to the lack of any known forces capable of producing these movements the hypothesis is nowadays less favoured than others requiring no drift. Recently, however, the study of palaeomagnetism has provided an independent line of evidence. From it the ancient latitudes and orientations of the continents can be worked out and relative displacements may possibly be revealed.
Compensating Changes in the Penetration Depth of Pulse-Limited Radar Altimetry Over the Greenland Ice Sheet
Changes in firn properties affect the shape of pulse-limited radar altimeter echoes acquired over the polar ice sheets. We apply a waveform deconvolution model to CryoSat-2 low-resolution mode echoes to determine the depth distribution of radar backscattering across the Greenland Ice Sheet. The deconvolution allows us to calculate the relative contributions of surface and volume scattering and the effective penetration depth of the radar echoes into the snowpack. The most prominent signal is associated with the extreme surface melting of summer 2012, which resulted in a shift of the dominant radar scattering horizon toward the snow surface in the accumulation zone. At locations above 2000 m, the average penetration depth in July 2012 (prior to the melt event) was 3.79 ± 1.12 m. Following the melt event, there was an abrupt reduction in the average penetration depth across the same region to 1.45 ± 0.94 m. The average penetration depth then gradually increased to 3.28 ± 1.13 m by the end of 2017, as fresh snow accumulated on the ice sheet surface. Although the variation in penetration is evident in surface height estimates derived from the CryoSat-2 echoes, the magnitude of the effect is reduced by waveform retracking. Using airborne laser altimeter data recorded over the same time period, we show that the penetration variation can be compensated effectively by incorporating the deconvolution penetration depth into the surface height retrieval.
Training & Education USS George H.W. Bush Sailors Participate in Clean the Station Day Back to overview,Home naval-today USS George H.W. Bush Sailors Participate in Clean the Station Day View post tag: clean View post tag: Bush View post tag: George View post tag: station Sailors aboard USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) participated in Clean the Station Day on Naval Station Norfolk (NAVSTA), Oct. 4.“We must take pride in the appearance and cleanliness of the base,” said Chief Yeoman Brad Long, event coordinator for George H.W. Bush. “This event gives everyone the chance to come together and keep our home port clean.”Clean the Station Day is a semi-annual base-wide clean-up organized and led by Naval Station Special Operations Department. More than 400 Sailors from Bush were joined by both military and civilian personnel from tenant commands across the base to improve the installation’s overall cleanliness. Cleaning efforts focus on collecting trash, removing debris, sweeping, cleaning parking lots, and general landscaping.“The event includes a foreign object debris (FOD) walk down for the base,” said Long. “Since most of the trash appears within the base’s parking lots, then that is where we focus our clean up.”Clean the Station Day was instituted by Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic to improve the cleanliness of naval installations around the area.“It makes a big difference around here when everyone works together for one day to keep our base clean,” said Religious Programs Specialist 1st Class Celeste Shields, assistant coordinator for the event.While Clean the Station is only a three hour occasion, Religious Programs Specialist 3rd Class Tyler Williams says that it is enough time to make the base look better.“It’s great to take a break away from our busy schedule, and do something that’s helpful to the base,” said Williams. “Also, I believe it’s our job to clean up the mess we make if we want to keep this place clean and beautiful.”USS George H.W. Bush is in homeport conducting training operations in preparation for the upcoming underway schedule.[mappress]Press Release, October 07, 2013 View post tag: participate View post tag: sailors View post tag: H.W.
