EMI, home of artists such as Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, was loaded with £2.6bn of debt in Terra Firma’s £4.2bn buyout deal in 2007, but has now had most of the loans lifted by Citi.Citi had refused to renegotiate the terms of the debt before taking ownership.Terra Firma’s buyout epitomised the risks of loading companies with debt when EMI’s performance slumped in the downturn.The battle for EMI was soured by an acrimonious US court case brought by Hands in December, in which he accused Citi investment banker David Wormsley of tricking him into paying far more for the company than it was worth.US judges found in favour of Citi but Hands lodged an appeal last month.Citi has cut EMI’s debt by 65 per cent to £1.2bn and it has been left with more than £300m cash.EMI’s management welcomed the change.“The recapitalisation of EMI by Citi is an extremely positive step for the company,” EMI chief executive Roger Faxon said in a statement.“It has given us one of the most robust balance sheets in the industry with a modest level of debt and substantial liquidity. With that solid footing, we are confident in our ability to drive our business forward.”In a statement, Terra Firma said it was “pleased that EMI’s debt burden has been reduced through Citi agreeing to write down a substantial proportion of EMI’s debt.” EMI said it would continue under the same management and it is now completely separate from its previous owner. The vehicle formed by Terra Firma to own EMI, called Maltby, is now in administration. last_img read more

These two elements of the context are what define the order and shape of the house. The order, due to the need to have the most important enclosures with a frontal view of the lake and the shape, due to the search to assume the topography of the slope in a volume that descends with the terrain and captures the greatest amount of light from the north to counteract the few hours of light on the site. The house is made up of two volumes, the first one, that descends with the terrain on three levels hosts the common areas of the house and the second that runs parallel to the slope, which contains the bedrooms and bathrooms. Spatially, the first volume that descends with the slope is built as a connected space between its levels and uses, resulting in a continuous space with multiple uses, the access, the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the terrace etc. Spatially, the second volume includes a larger opening in its north facade, this opening results in higher spaces in the interior circulation and in the children’s bedrooms, which allowed the construction of mezzanines that receive and deliver light to the bedrooms that are oriented to the south towards the lake.Save this picture!© Andres MaturanaSave this picture!© Andres MaturanaThe house is a mixed construction, mixing wood carpentry for foundation pillars, beams, interior and exterior partitions, coatings and flooring, Sip panels for the slab of the first floor and the perimeter and interior partitions of the first and second floors.

Beck Stresses Herbicide Rotation and Following Label

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleHAT Commentary: Sharpening the Pencil, Tightening the BeltNext articleStressing Herbicide Rotation and Following the Label on the HAT Monday Morning Edition Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE Beck Stresses Herbicide Rotation and Following Label Home Indiana Agriculture News Beck Stresses Herbicide Rotation and Following Label By Andy Eubank – Aug 28, 2017 Becks-weed-managementWeeds in Indiana soybean fields are easy to spot this year, so some weed management plans for next year might need to be adjusted. The plan should include rotating herbicide chemistry, and one Hoosier thinks most farmers are already headed that way. The president of Beck’s Hybrids, Scott Beck, says his company started encouraging rotation 6-7 years ago.“At that time we had Liberty Link soybeans to offer as the only other option beyond glyphosate to be able to control weeds,” he explained. “Liberty Link sales has now grown to 58 percent, so over half of our volume that farmers are using is Liberty Link. That’s been an effective system for controlling glyphosate resistant weeds, so we plan to continue on with Liberty. Obviously now we’ve got the Extend platform which gives farmers additional tools to be able to use dicamba based products.”Beck says the key for both the dicamba products and Liberty system is to follow the label.“With Liberty we have to make sure we’ve got good coverage, that we’ve got enough volume of material and we’re applying during the right time. With dicamba we’ve got to make sure we’ve got the right nozzles, don’t spray above certain wind speeds, and we avoid temperature inversions so we don’t drift or volatilize on our neighbor.”Not following the label has led to dicamba drift and off-target damage to other crops in the first full year of the Extend cropping system. Beck says there will be a lot of talk about that in the off-season.“There’s going to be a lot of interesting conversations here over the next few months as farmers get into harvest and we uncover the yields that have been either affected by drift or not affected by drift, and just seeing where some of those damages may or may not be. And then certainly there’s the regulatory challenges that many states are going to face deciding what is the use of dicamba and how are we going to ensure that farmers are using it properly.”HAT spoke with Beck at the annual Becknology Days last week in Atlanta, Indiana.

TCU looks to avoid becoming a cautionary tale against SMU

(AP Photo/Mike Stone) TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Garrett Podell printTCU is coming off a 28-7 victory at Arkansas as it prepares to the defend the Iron Skillet against long time rival SMU.The Horned Frogs have only lost to SMU twice this century, but head football coach Gary Patterson knows the Mustangs will arrive at Amon G. Carter Stadium Saturday ready to play.In 2005, the Mustangs  cost the Frogs a perfect season, one week after TCU had upset a top-five Oklahoma in Norman, 17-10. Patterson has already warned his players against repeating this.“That’s the first thing that came out of his mouth,” senior quarterback Kenny Hill said Tuesday. “You can’t take these guys lightly, and we know that coming in because of the way they’ve played us the last couple of years; they always give us a game.”Patterson said the telling of the 2005 SMU upset story is an “annual thing.”Like TCU, SMU is 2-0.  The Mustangs have scored a program record 112 points this season and have one of the nation’s top receivers, Courtland Sutton. Sutton hauled in four receiving touchdowns on eight catches and went for 163 yards against University of North Texas Saturday, setting an American Athletic Conference record and tying the school record.This season, the Horned Frogs have been stout defensively, having never played from behind in its 2-0 start this season, and they rank fourth in the country in scoring defense and total defense.“I think I saw where they say they’re trying to win the Metroplex trophy because they beat North Texas,” Patterson said. “That’s one of their goals, so anytime you get in an emotional game, you have to get ready to play.”After beating OU in 2005, Patterson was so caught up in the win he allowed media to his practice the next day – that doesn’t happen anymore. Now, Patterson said he looks at one game and one game only.“If you want to achieve everything, you have to get ready because they all count as one, and they don’t give you bonus points,” he said. “We don’t have a game on our schedule where we can’t be beat. We have a tough schedule.”The Horned Frogs are the Mustangs’ most played opponent. TCU has played only Baylor more than SMU.“SMU is a big rivalry game, so they’re going to come out swinging as hard as they can, and it’s always a physical game because of the tradition,” Hill said. “We’re looking forward to a battle.” Previous articleTrivia Thursday: TCU Scavenger HuntNext articleSodexo contract set to expire, administration looking for feedback Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Garrett Podell Facebook Garrett Podell Linkedin Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

Authorities take aim at Scope TV

first_img September 5, 2014 Find out more KuwaitMiddle East – North Africa New Cyber Crimes Law restricts free expression and targets online activists Reporters Without borders is shocked at the imposition by a Kuwaiti court of a fine of 500,000 dinars (approximately 1,360,000 euros) on the television station Scope TV for insulting a member of the royal family.“Under the guise of protecting national unity, this exorbitant and disproportionate fine is aimed at muzzling Scope TV and all media organizations that are critical of the monarchy,” the press freedom organization said. It demanded that the penalty be rescinded. The station was ordered to pay the sum to the former information minister Sheikh Faisal Al-Malek Al-Sabah, a member of the ruling family. The court ruled that the station’s director, Tallal Al-Said, a former member of parliament, had broadcast a programme last October that it deemed offensive to the royal family.The verdict once again only to adds to the atmosphere of mistrust of the media. The Kuwaiti authorities hope to further strengthen the penalties provided for in the law that regulates broadcasting. On 17 April, the information minister affirmed that he favoured the strict application of the law in order to safeguard national unity, adding that the authorities were studying the possibility of tightening the law’s penalties for news organizations that contravened it.On 11 April, the newspaper Addustour quoted the information minister as saying any media organization that undermined national unity would be referred to the public prosecutor without favouritism. On 22 April, the government submitted a national unity bill to parliament, which includes a provision for a prison sentence of between three and seven years and a minimum fine of 3,000 dinars (nearly 8,200 euros) for anyone who failed to observe certain sections of the law. These specify that national unity is flouted where media organizations denigrate minorities, incite hatred based on religious beliefs or fail to respect the privacy of individuals.On 18 March, about 50 members of the majority Al-Awazem tribe invaded the premises of Scope TV in Kuwait City, destroying part of the building’s façade and vandalizing some of its offices.They were protesting over remarks they considered insulting during a programme presented by Fayez Baty, in which a Shi’ite member of parliament Hussein Al-Qalaf was reported to have criticized the Al-Awazem leader, Falah Bin Jamae. As a result of the interview, the Kuwaiti government decided to bring a prosecution against the TV station, accusing it of engendering sectarianism and damaging national unity. The following day, the station’s management took the station off air in protest over the attack. According to the newspaper Al-Watan on 23 March, Fayez Baty resigned after apologizing and expressing his regret.On 29 April, three members of the Al-Awazem tribe charged with taking part in the attack on the station’s offices were released by the public prosecutor after paying fines of 1,000 dinars (about 2,700 euros). News Help by sharing this information Previously, during the campaign for the parliamentary elections in February, Scope TV was prosecuted for broadcasting comments by the candidate in the third electoral district, Mohammed Al-Juwaihel, a liberal strongly opposed to trial influence in politics. He was reported to have strongly criticized the tribes involved. In the wake of his comments, supporters of tribal leaders set fire to the candidate’s premises.On 31 January, tribal supporters stormed the offices of the station Al-Watan when a televised debate was to have taken place between two candidates, Islamist-backed Faysal Al-Muslim and Nabil Al-Fadl, a pro-government candidate opposed to the Motairi tribe.Reporters Without Borders has learned that access to the website of the independent online newspaper Watan has been blocked since 12 March. Based in the United States, Watan is available in Arabic and English. Its website cannot be accessed inside Kuwait and anyone trying to do so is greeted with the message: “The website was blocked by the Ministry of Communication in accordance with article VII of the Ministerial Resolution No. 103 of 2000, paragraph one on the regulations and bases of the Internet service provided by Internet companies in the state of Kuwait.”The site administrators were not informed of the move and have been given no reason for it. On 29 March, Bassam Mahdawi, managing editor of Al-Watan, confirmed to Reporters without Borders that the site could still not be accessed from Kuwait.

This quadrennial radiosport competition, the first held in the United States since 1996, will be held across 16 New England communities from July 9 through 14. Known as the “Olympiad of amateur radio,” previous WRTC2014 competitions have been held in Seattle (1990), San Francisco (1996), Slovenia (2000), Finland (2002), Brazil (2006), and Russia (2010).“I think it all started when I stuck a hairpin in a light switch at the age of 3 or 4,” says Hodge, of his interest in amateur radio, “I felt firsthand the power of electricity, and half the lights in the house went out!” By the age of 14, Hodge had his first amateur radio callsign as a novice, and has grown into a respected radio contestor on the world stage. His diverse career has led him through a history as a professional French horn musician with two top orchestras in Mexico City. He has gone on to become a broadcast television professional in the US. Hodge credits his involvement with radiosport for several lifelong friendships in the hobby. “A thrilling contest is even more meaningful when one has had the opportunity to know the person on the other end,” shares Hodge. “To spend a week with the best of the best in radiosport is a dream come true.”WRTC2014 pits 59 two-operator all-star amateur radio teams, representing 38 countries, in a battle of operating skill and strategy under emergency field conditions, for personal and national pride on a world stage. Similar to Olympic athletes, competitors hone their skills for superior performance through mental and physical conditioning, talent, skill and strategy. This form of competition evolved as a method of practicing emergency communication, but also serves as a laboratory for technology innovation and experimentation, much like other technical sports, such as motor sports or sailing.Competing teams were selected from around the world in a series of 55 qualifying events over a 3-year period. Just earning a spot in the competition is a prestigious accomplishment for every competitor, allowing them to represent their country and have the opportunity to win a coveted place on the podium.Returning to the United States after 18 years, WRTC2014 gathers competitors, referees, and visitors from around the world to connect and celebrate amateur radio. Hundreds of spectating visitors are also expected to attend, taking advantage of the rare opportunity to network with amateur radio luminaries worldwide, while enjoying the surrounding area’s rich history and regional charm. On the global scale, thousands more will “tune in” and participate over the airwaves, and follow the event’s real-time Internet scoreboard to stay abreast of competition results. The largest “radiosport” competitions draw activity from over 20,000 participants and can collectively include more than two million two-way contacts – all in one weekend.Amateur Radio, or “ham radio” as it is often called, enables licensed participants to use short wave frequencies to communicate with peers from around the world. Licensed “hams” in the United States are authorized by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to use their radio equipment to talk anywhere on earth, using different “modes of operation” such as voice, Morse code, or any of several digital modes, also pioneered within the ham radio community. Today, there are more licensed amateur radio operators than ever before – over 700,000 in the U.S. alone, in addition to more than a million operators around the world.Amateur radio plays a key role as a critical emergency service in times of disaster when other forms of communication fail. Locally, this was demonstrated after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, when cellular networks were overloaded and failed. Amateur radio operators have assisted in providing communication services to the Marathon for many years, and were on hand to provide vital communications for Marathon volunteers following the bombing. Critical communication services were also provided by hams during the aftermath of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina. Radio amateurs have been involved in the front lines of developing modern communications systems, including the fundamental technology used in all cell phones.For more information, visit WRTC2014The World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) is an international competition held every four years, consisting of 50+ two-person teams of amateur radio operators from around the world competing in a test of operating skill. Unlike most on-the-air competitions, all stations are required to use identical antennas from the same geographic region, eliminating all variables except operating ability. The WRTC 2014 committee is an independent organization created specifically to organize the event. For more information, visit or contact WRTC Chairman Doug Grant via e-mail at [email protected] Information about the history and results of previous WRTC events is available at ARRL and the Amateur Radio ServiceAmateur Radio (often called “ham radio”) provides the broadest and most powerful wireless communications capability available to any private citizen anywhere in the world. The principles of this federally licensed radio service include public service, radio experimentation, and international goodwill.ARRL is the national membership association for amateur radio operators in the US. Its mission is “to promote and advance the art, science and enjoyment of amateur radio.” ARRL members span the globe, supported by the organization’s programs, activities, publications and experts. ARRL publishes books, software, online courses and resources for amateur radio licensing, operating, and education. ARRL and its members also provide outreach to schools and teachers, inspiring students to pursue education and careers in the fields of wireless technology (radio, electronics, and computers).
