Alliance Trust, which activist shareholder Laxey Partners says is hiding the true costs of its subsidiaries, said net asset value per share at 31 January stood at 439 pence a share, up the 377.7 pence posted last year.It will pay a full-year dividend of 8.395 pence, compared with 8.15 pence last year.“The near term outlook for stock markets remains clouded by a number of uncertainties,” said CEO Katherine Garrett-Cox, who is nicknamed “Katherine the Great” by some industry peers for her success in the industry while juggling a large family.Alliance Trust also recommended in a separate statement that its shareholders vote against two resolutions put forward by Laxey and to be voted at its general meeting on May 20.Laxey, which owns 1.6 per cent of the stock, is lobbying for the introduction of a Discount Control Mechanism, designed to reduce Alliance Trust’s share price discount to NAV; and also for reforms to the company’s voting policies for its subsidiaries.Laxey said in a statement that shareholders shouldered the costs of Alliance Trust’s subsidiaries Alliance Trust Savings, Alliance Trust Asset Management and non-operating subsidiary Alliance Trust Finance, without being given a full account of their costs or benefiting from performance.Last month Alliance Trust said it would shut down its private equity unit to focus on its stock and bond investments, but Laxey said that the decision is “unlikely to have a substantial impact on either performance or overall expenses.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter A blanket ban on gambling companies sponsoring professional tennis events and restrictions on live streaming and the collection scoring data of lower level competitions are among proposals put forward in a bid to uphold the integrity of the sport.The Independent Review Panel recommends international governing bodies in tennis, and the events they endorse, do no accept any form of sponsorship from the betting industry helping to set an example for players, who are already banned from agreeing such deals.It also sets out proposals to ban live streaming and collecting online scoring data for competitions that offer prize money of up to $15,000 (£11,800/€13,100). This would stop unofficial data being gathered and used for betting purposes, the panel claimed.However, the panel acknowledged that streaming and collecting scoring data is necessary from a developmental point of view. As such, it said streams and data should only be broadcast or made available after a time delay, to prevent its use for in-play betting.The final recommendations differ slightly to those set out in the previous edition of the report in May, which were criticised by some for being too harsh. At that time the panel recommended that the ban on live scoring data apply to all events offering up to $25,000 in prize money.The decision to lower the prize money threshold has been praised by Sportradar, which hit out at some of the proposals put forward in the penultimate report. Sportradar, which currently works with the International Tennis Federation (ITF) as its official data partner, warned that if such rules were to be adopted, they could have a harmful effect on the sport.However, while praising the panel’s decision to alter its approach, Sportradar also warned that the revised proposals were still disproportionate.“A targeted approach should be applied across the whole sport; we have been consistent in our view that the panel invites new risks and problems by recommending a prohibitive approach, when it has not succeeded as an effective regulatory tool in relation to the betting industry anywhere in the world, nor in any other sport,” Sportradar managing director of group operaitons David Lampitt explained. “Adjusting their arbitrary line (between targeted approach and blanket discontinuance) down a level doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.“This is because the measures don’t match the risks; the panel’s approach remains disproportionate,” Lampitt continued. “They now accept a targeted approach as the most effective response for almost every level of tennis, including quite correctly those levels above the ITF that evidence the highest level of risk. It then makes no sense that they have doggedly maintained a solution that is more draconian, expensive, complex and unpredictable for the $15k tournament level that has lower risk.”The panel acknowledged Sportradar’s ongoing relationship with the ITF and how the proposed changes could impact this deal, but recommended the ITF should not enter into any new contract or extend current deals. It also said that tennis’ governing bodies should compensate the organisation for any loss of future revenue.In addition, the final report makes reference to an earlier recommendation for players’ wages, whereby their fees should be published in full. The panel has backtracked on its decision and now stated that a confidential report should instead be sent to the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) for examination.The Independent Review of Integrity in Tennis was conducted in the wake of concerns over the level of corruption in professional tennis. The independent review panel was established by tennis’ governing bodies the Association of Tennis Professionals, Women’s Tennis Association, Grand Slam Board and ITF in 2016 to assess ways to better uphold sporting integrity across all competitions. The December report is the last instalment of a series produced in response to a joint investigation by the BBC and Buzzfeed News into corruption in tennis. In September 2016, the two parties claimed to have uncovered files that exposed evidence of widespread suspected match-fixing at the top level of professional tennis.The report said 16 players who have ranked in the ATP top 50 during the past decade had been repeatedly flagged to the TIU over suspicions they had thrown matches. All players in question, including a winner of Grand Slam titles, were allowed to continue competing at the top level of the sport.However, corruption within the sport seemingly remains a problem, with suspicious betting activity around tennis higher than in all other sports.In 2017, a total of 160 of the 226 suspicious activity alerts that were filed with European integrity body ESSA were in relation to tennis betting, far ahead of football, in second place with 45 alerts. In addition, the TIU in January this year revealed it had banned nine professional players for betting or match-fixing activities over the course of 2017. In total, 13 players were sanctioned, with five of these banned for match-fixing and a further four for betting – up from nine players and officials in 2016.

Cons: Farrell 3. Pens: Farrell 2, Ford.Referee: Glen Jackson (New Zealand) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Jonathan Joseph scored a second-half hat-trick as England overcame Italy in Rome and moved into top spot in the Six Nations table, ahead of France on points difference. Eddie Jones’s team ran in five tries in all, George Ford and Owen Farrell also crossing. Their first-half performance was disjointed and underwhelming, but they managed to break clear of a determined Italian side in the last 30 minutes. The turning point came when Joseph scored under the posts after intercepting a poor Leonardo Sarto pass in the 53rd minute as Italy tried to attack from their own half. From then on, England were in control.WHAT’S HOT…All-round skills – Last week it was Mako Vunipola, a prop, with the neat pop pass that set up Jack Nowell’s crucial try. This time it was brother Billy with the soft offload that allowed Owen Farrell to send George Ford in the corner for England’s first try. Jamie George provided another neat offload for Farrell to score under the posts.Corner stop: George Ford touches down the first of England’s five tries. Photo: Getty ImagesThen we had wing Anthony Watson ripping the ball off Gonzalo Garcia in the tackle as well as having an influence at the breakdown. It just goes to show that in the professional game, both forwards and backs need to be able to develop these sort of skills.Italian spirit – Italy players are known for getting emotional when singing their anthem and it was certainly the case here, Sergio Parisse looking particularly fired up. Yet their passion was allied with a new control to their game. Carlo Canna and Edoardo Gori dictated play from half-back with centres Michele Campagnaro and Gonzalo Garcia (while he was on the field at least) finding holes in England’s defence. They were keen to attack close to the gain-line and put pressure on their visitors, reaping the benefits of England’s ill-discipline. Whether Eddie Jones’s pre-match rhetoric provided Italy with extra inspiration, it’s hard to know, but they certainly played with more organisation and ambition than we have witnessed in recent years, though the interception try dented their confidence for the final half-hour.Centre of attention: Michele Campagnaro was the standout performer for Italy. Photo: Getty ImagesBench pressure – England were able to make changes by choice in contrast to Italy’s injury-enforced ones, and their replacements certainly made a difference. The arrival of Maro Itoje, Jack Clifford and Joe Launchbury saw England get more quick ball at the breakdown, Danny Care brought a spark from scrum-half, his clever grubber kick resulting in Joseph’s second try, while Joe Marler delivered aggression at the scrum and tackle area. The selection meetings ahead of the Ireland game should be interesting!WHAT’S NOT…Ill-discipline – England’s penalty count must be Eddie Jones’s biggest concern after two rounds of the Six Nations – 13 here and 12 at Murrayfield. They allowed Italy to get a foothold in the game and on the scoreboard by conceding avoidable penalties – not rolling away after the tackle, hitting high, coming in at the side and so on. They need to tighten up discipline-wise going into the last three rounds, where they will face the championship’s better teams, or they are likely to be on the end of a defeat.Inconsistent: Chris Robshaw wins a lineout but England struggled in that area. Photo: Getty ImagesEngland’s lineout – The second biggest worry for England’s coaches will be the lineout. They lacked accuracy at the set-piece, perhaps overcomplicating matters when the simple call would have been more effective, and lost four on their own throw – a statistic that will not please Steve Borthwick. What can be achieved was evident in the build-up to Jonathan Joseph’s second try, a strong driving maul giving Danny Care the position to kick through for his centre to dab down. Unfortunately from England’s perspective, this sort of platform was not a common occurrence.Italian injuries – Italy lost three players to injury within the first 32 minutes, with Alessandro Zanni and Gonzalo Garcia particular blows. Flanker Zanni brings huge physicality and work-rate while centre Garcia was carrying strongly and picking good lines before his departure. Their experience and nous was missed in the second period.Happy day: England fans enjoy the atmosphere in Rome. Photo: Getty ImagesSTATISTICSlast_img read more

Photo: Art Babych[Anglican Journal] The Anglican-Lutheran Joint Assembly on July 5 passed, by a vote of 98 per cent, a joint declaration focusing on the issues of homelessness in Canada and “responsible resource extraction” involving Canadian companies in Canada and overseas.No one spoke out against the declaration when it was presented for debate on the floor, but a number stood to express support.The Rev. Kenn Ward, an ELCIC pastor, made an emotional plea for the declaration, citing how his friend, Katherine Baiya, a Congolese refugee now living in Winnipeg, asked him once what churches are doing to end rape and other human rights abuses resulting from the mineral wealth in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. “She [Baiya] said, ‘It’s your mining companies who have done this to us.’ ”Ward said the “terror and tragedy” hit home when Baiya shared news that her sister had recently been hacked to death in the Congo, leaving behind five children. “This motion is a small thing, but at least I can take this back to her and say, ‘We’re trying to do something,’ ” said Ward. Ward’s congregation in Sherwood Park, Winnipeg, shares ministry with Baiya’s black Pentecostal congregation, Good Seed.The Rev. Iola Metuq, Anglican diocese of the Arctic, noted how mining companies operating in Nunavut “get billions of dollars from our land,” while indigenous people are left with “pollution, contaminated animals.”The declaration commits the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada to work together in raising public awareness, “to discern where and how we can make a difference, to act where we can, and to advocate for equitable and innovative approaches to the challenges that we share.” The two churches—in full communion since 2011—also vowed to pray “for all affected by these issues and those who bear responsibility in addressing them.”On the issue of “responsible resource extraction,” the declaration commits the churches to support indigenous communities in Canada and abroad “in exercising the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent” with regard to development projects that affect their traditional territories. It also promises to “advocate for responsible and ethical investment in both Canada and around the world.”The declaration notes that Canadian companies are “major players” in mining, energy production and resource extraction across Canada and overseas. “They generate wealth for our societies, but they also give rise to serious and complex environmental, socio-economic, and human rights issues,” it states.On the issue of homelessness, the declaration commits the two churches to “advocate for renewed federal funding” and for an “integrated national collaborative strategy and greater accountability on the part of provinces and municipalities” in addressing homelessness and substandard housing.“As we look across Canada, we are disturbed by the reality that around 400,000 people are without a healthy place to live and that homelessness has continued to increase despite years of unprecedented economic growth and prosperity in our country,” the declaration states.A number of aboriginal Anglicans stood to express support for the declaration, noting how homelessness and substandard housing are issues that affect a large indigenous population, a number of whom are Indian residential school survivors.Sylvia James, a First Nation Cree who sat at the assembly as a partner with no voting privileges, urged the assembly to support the motion. She spoke about the plight of First Nations people forced to live in motels because their homes have been damaged by floods, or those who continue to live in mouldy homes on reserves, or those who have been transferred to locations that are “in the middle of nowhere.”The declaration notes that many, particularly the working poor, are unable to find affordable housing. “The costs in terms of human suffering are staggering, as are the additional burdens for health care and social services,” it says.While churches help by providing a broad range of services and support for the homeless and the working poor, these are not enough, it adds.The declaration carries a promise by the churches to act by “nurturing and supporting” their own agencies and programs that work with and for the homeless, the under-housed and refugees.On the issue of resource extraction, the declaration expresses concern that recent Canadian legislation (Bills C-38 and C-45) has made changes to environmental legislation and assessment processes “that potentially threaten the ecological integrity of areas under proposed development.”Resource extraction and development projects “often cross the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples without their Free, Prior and Informed Consent, a right enshrined in the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, to which Canada is a signatory nation,” adds the declaration.

Brian Early, with DuPont Pioneer in east central Indiana, says planting and replanting are underway, “We have many fields that have dried out, but you don’t have to push down very far to find there is still a good deal of moisture in the soil.” He told HAT rain totals in the north were a little lower and, thus, they got back in the fields over the weekend.In addition to wet soil, Early said soil crusting is a major issue, “In some fields, it is light enough that the  crops may break through, but in some areas, the crust will be too hard for newly planted seeds to break through.” He said, in the next few days, growers should be able to tell which fields can be saved and which will have to be replanted.According to Early, breaking up soil crust can be a difficult management chore, “You can try a rotary hoe, but the issue we have had with these is they do not have a lot of down pressure and sometimes cannot break through the soil.” He said some growers have used a planter or vertical tillage tool, “These options are very time-consuming.”Listen to the complete DuPont Pioneer agronomy report under the agronomy tab on our website and mobile app. Planters Rolling Again SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 15, 2017 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img to go further Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the injunction issued by a Ljubljana district court on 6 August banning the daily Dnevnik to mention Italian businessman Pierpaolo Cerani as controversial or involved in corruption scandals.Dnevnik can report about him only in positive way, without mentioning his involvement in former scandals until there has been an outcome to the libel suit he has brought against the newspaper. Dnevnik could be fined 50,000 euros for every violation of the injunction up to a ceiling of 500,000 euros.“The Slovenian courts are legalizing a form of censorship that is unacceptable in a European Union member country,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Cerani can use his right of reply to defend himself. He can also, as he has already done, sue the newspaper for damages before a Slovenian court and wait for the court to issue its verdict.” “The information reported by Dnevnik already appeared in other international media without prompting any lawsuits,” the press freedom organisation added. “The injunction clearly aims to prevent the media from examining important business deals, in which Cerani is trying to acquire one of Slovenia’s biggest industrial groups.”Cerani, who has reportedly obtained control of three of Slovenia’s biggest business groups Mercator, Lasko Brewery and Radenska, was the subject of a report in Dnevnik on 29 and 30 July. At the start of this month, Cerani’s company, Iniziative Generali 96, also reportedly obtained a major stake in Boško Šrot’s company Kolonel, which would allow him to control Slovenia’s drinks industry. Thereafter, he reportedly acquired two of Slovenia’s leading dailies, Delo and Vecer.
