Skou We Are Not Planning Any Acquisitions in 2019

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Maersk Danish transportation and logistics giant Maersk doesn’t see a strong need to pursue mergers and acquisitions in the following year, according to the company’s CEO Søren Skou.As explained, the company has over 20 pct market share on the long-haul trades, which provides it with a competitive cost structure, removing the need to look into acquisitions.The world’s largest shipping company is in the process of integration of German liner Hamburg Süd, which is progressing faster than planned. Maersk expects integration synergies to reach at least USD 500 million by 2019, excluding integration cost.Furthermore, the company plans to continue with capital discipline in the coming quarters.“We are not planning to order any large ships before at the earliest of 2020 or invest in second-hand vessels,” Skou said. This also relates to new major terminal investments expected until at least 2020.During Q3, Maersk assigned USD 80 million for the installation of scrubbers and retrofitting on a selected part of the containership fleet as part of the plan to comply with the new sulphur regulations from January 2020.Skou did not want to reveal the number of vessels that will be fitted with scrubbers during today’s conference call, stressing that the company’s compliance strategy with the sulphur cap would entail burning 0.5 percent low sulphur fuel on vast majority of its vessels.Commenting on the impact of the U.S. tariffs on Chinese imported goods that are set to enter into force in 2019 and the brewing trade war between the two world majors, Skou said that Maersk Line would take out capacity from its Transpacific trade around the Chinese New Year to accommodate for the expected slowdown in demand.However, the company’s other trades are not expected to be affected by the ongoing trade tensions.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

UN agency confirms death of staff member after attack in Ethiopia

Farhan Hamsa, who worked as a driver for WFP, died on Friday when unknown assailants attacked an agency convoy that was on a monitoring mission, WFP reported in a statement.One staff member was injured in the attack and two others are missing, WFP said, urging anyone who may have information on the whereabouts of the missing staff members to contact the agency.“I am deeply saddened by this deplorable killing,” said Josette Sheeran, WFP Executive Director. “This is the second deadly attack on a WFP humanitarian worker in less than a month.”A senior programme assistant for WFP was killed in neighbouring Southern Sudan on 22 May after his vehicle was ambushed by assailants in the state of Jonglei.“Humanitarian workers need and deserve the protection of all as they seek to protect the vulnerable and save innocent lives,” said Ms. Sheeran. “We call upon the world to join us in condemning such actions as the killing of Farhan. Every day WFP drivers like Farhan deliver life-saving help to the most vulnerable under conditions of great danger and hardship. They are my heroes.”The agency has long been active in the Horn of Africa nation, and currently provides food aid to an estimated 4.5 million people in Ethiopia, including large numbers of refugees and schoolchildren.Farhan, who had worked for WFP since 2006, leaves behind a wife and seven children. 16 May 2011The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has confirmed that one if its staff members was killed and two others remain missing after an ambush in Ethiopia’s remote Somali region. read more

Sony hints at PS4 announcement in May

first_imgAt E3 this year it is expected that Microsoft will unveil the next Xbox in the run up to a release most likely happening in October. How Sony will respond to such an announcement is unknown, but it turns out the Japanese company may actually beat Microsoft to the punch.Hiroshi Sakamoto, vice president of Sony’s Home Entertainment division, gave a brief interview with Chilean website El Mercurio On-Line at the weekend. During their chat he was asked about a new PlayStation. His response was quite surprising, suggesting we’ll hear something at E3 in June, “or even earlier in May.”El Mercurio’s reporter must have been as surprised as we are such an answer was forthcoming from a Sony VP, so he checked by asking if the big announcement they had planned was definitely for a PlayStation or something else related to it. Hiroshi confirmed it was for the PlayStation, and that’s all we would hear until May.If this turns out to be true, it means we’ll know about the PlayStation 4 before the Xbox 720. And depending on what hardware Sony has chosen to go with it will leave Microsoft either smiling happily about its E3 plans or sweating and scrambling to catch up with its rival.The next round of console releases is certainly going to be one of the most interesting simply due to the uncertainty of what Sony and Microsoft will choose to do with the hardware. I’d expect Sony to include a Blu-ray drive again, but will Microsoft follow, try and rely on DVD again, or dump the optical drive completely? And what about performance? Will it be another major leap or just an incremental update that is enough to support 4K output?One thing’s for sure, E3 is certainly going to be very interesting this year as Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all need to get us excited about their new hardware, not just games and entertainment.via emol.com (translated)last_img read more

House committee issues subpoenas Comey OKd to testify

first_imgWASHINGTON — The House intelligence committee said Wednesday it is issuing subpoenas for former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as well as their businesses, as part of its investigation into Russian activities during last year’s election.In addition to those four subpoenas, the committee has issued three others — to the National Security Agency, the FBI and the CIA — for information about requests that government officials made to “unmask” the identities of U.S. individuals named in classified intelligence reports, according to a congressional aide.The subpoenas were announced as the special counsel overseeing the government’s investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russia has approved former FBI Director James Comey to testify before the Senate intelligence committee, according to a Comey associate.At a Wednesday briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer said inquiries about the Russia investigation must be directed to Marc Kasowitz, another of Trump’s personal attorneys. It marked the first time the White House had officially acknowledged that outside counsel had been retained. Calls and emails to Kasowitz’s New York firm were not immediately returned Wednesday.The Comey associate declined to discuss the content of Comey’s planned testimony. The associate did say that Robert Mueller, whom the Justice Department appointed earlier this month to lead the government’s inquiry, is allowing Comey to make certain statements.last_img read more

Biotech Soybean Seed Helps Growers Produce Safe and Profitable Crops

first_imgA Message from ASA President Tony Anderson:While farmers are busy putting the seeds of next year’s crop in the ground, a noted critic of modern agricultural practices is sowing seeds of distrust with a new report about biotechnology-enhanced soybeans. While farmer confidence in biotechnology-enhanced soybeans is at an all-time high, as evidenced by the recent USDA planting intentions report, agriculture’s critics won’t admit this confidence is a result of proven gains-both on the farm and in the environment-so this latest report shouldn’t surprise anyone.The report, issued by Dr. Charles Benbrook of the Northwest Science and Environmental Policy Center, discusses changes in herbicide applications and yields associated with the development of biotechnology-enhanced soybeans.We think it is critical the American public understand the farm and environmental benefits of today’s biotechnology. Dr. Benbrook is so intent on finding something wrong with biotechnology, that he misses the big picture. There are always questions about new technology. As farmers growing food for a hungry world, we care very deeply about the safety and quality of our product, and we are committed to finding answers to the questions raised by biotechnology’s critics. But this quest for knowledge should not undermine the positive environmental gains we have made using modern biotechnology. I am sharing the following information with you to help ensure the farmer’s voice is heard within this debate.———————————————————————————————————–Biotech Soybean Seed Helps Growers Produce Safe and Profitable Crops———————————————————————————————————–Biotechnology AdoptionLike any other successful business, the bottom line for farmers is profitability. Scientist can debate all day long about the meaning of various comparisons and observations, while soybean producers know what works and what doesn’t work on their farm when it comes to seedstock, herbicides, farm equipment or any other input costs they must carefully evaluate in order to make a profit.The numbers for biotechnology speak louder than words: In 1996, when biotech soybean seedstock first became available commercially, U.S. farmers planted only about 1 million acres of biotech varieties, which represented less than two percent of the total soybean acres planted that year. In 1997, planted acres of biotech soybeans increased to nearly 10 million acres, or about 14 percent of the total soy acres planted. By 1998, biotech seedstock acres increased to 25 million acres, representing about 34 percent of the total soy planting.In 1999, approximately 38 million acres or 53 percent of total U.S. soy acres were planted to biotech seedstock, and last year biotech soybeans were grown on approximately 40 million acres or 55 percent of total U.S. soy acres. In 2001, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that soybean farmers will again increase the number of acres they plant of soybean seed that have been enhanced through modern crop biotechnology.Evaluating Production FactorsMany factors go into a farmer’s decision making process for seed selection. Last year there were more than 3,000 different varieties of soybean seed were available, including more than 1,100 varieties that were Roundup Ready. Projected yield is only one of many variables that a grower must consider. More importantly, a farmer must look at local conditions in each field, such as soil type, moisture levels, and weed pests, before determining what products will work best in each particular situation.Then, even after a producer works to make all the right decisions, weather often becomes the deciding factor when it comes to bottom line profits. Too little or too much rain, too cold or too hot, weather is the one factor that farmers have yet to manage.For instance, last year in parts of central Iowa, soybeans had to deal with Labor Day weekend temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The hot temperatures sped along the maturation process, but the seed quality suffered and the soybeans rapidly dried down to an ultra low 8 to 9 percent moisture level. (13 percent is the normal target delivery standard.) This damaged some plants because they were brittle and resulted in additional mechanical damage to the seed when harvested.EnvironmentHerbicide-tolerant soybeans are helping farmers protect the environment by allowing changes in tillage practices and herbicide applications. Through improved weed control, farmers also are producing cleaner crops that contain fewer non-grain materials.In its July 20, 2000, Agricultural Outlook Summary, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) stated that planting biotech crops appeals to farmers because these crops simplify pest management, reduce pesticide use, and help control costs. Analysis by USDA’s Economic Research Service indicates that adoption of biotech corn, soybeans, and cotton is associated with a decrease in the number pesticide treatments. Also, the herbicide-tolerance trait in soybeans allows substitution of glyphosate herbicides that are less persistent in the environment.An independent study by Dr. Richard Phipps of the University of Reading, England, that was published in the July 2000 issue of Feed Compounder Magazine, reported that herbicide/insecticide use in biotech soybean and cotton production had decreased by 20 and 80 percent respectively, and that the use of biotech crops in North America has reduced the use of agrochemicals by 4.5 million liters (about 1.9 million gallons).Another important benefit of biotech crops that should not be overlooked, is that biotech crops help farmers increase their use of no-till farming practices that reduce soil erosion by up to 90 percent and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by farm fields. On September 15, 2000, The Wall Street Journal published an article about a study at Michigan State University that showed that no-till farming, which is facilitated by Roundup Ready soybeans, resulted in an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gases.Critics of biotechnology cite the potential for herbicide resistance to develop if farmers depend upon only one weed control system. Farmers would agree that diverse technologies for weed control are an important part of managing weeds and other pests. Unfortunately, the hysteria caused by environmental activists in the European Union has frozen the regulatory approval for new biotechnology-enhanced products that could diversify a farmer’s pest management options. One such product, a soybean resistant to glufosinate herbicide, would provide farmers another choice in seed/herbicide management systems, but the EU has not approved this product despite the petition being submitted in 1998.SummaryASA is a strong supporter of biotechnology because ASA’s farmer-leaders believe biotechnology is a tool for producing safer, more nutritious food more efficiently and more abundantly. Agriculture biotechnology benefits not only producers, but also consumers and the world’s environment.Regulatory agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), have declared these crops safe after completing rigorous reviews of scientific testing. Soybeans grown from Roundup Ready seedstock are the same in composition, nutritional profile and safety (including allergenic potential) as any other commercially available variety.Agriculture biotechnology has been embraced by farmers because it reduces input costs and provides increased production flexibility in conservation tillage practices. Work also is under way to produce soybeans with output traits that will directly benefit consumers. Soybean farmers recognize the need for consumer understanding and acceptance of agriculture biotechnology, and ASA continues to advocate open communication among consumers, producers, researchers, industry leaders and the regulatory community.last_img read more

Washington lawmakers pass budget adjourn OT session

first_imgOLYMPIA — The Washington state Legislature adjourned a double-overtime session Wednesday after finalizing a budget deal that had lawmakers working throughout the night and into the morning. The legislative session ended shortly after the Senate passed a budget measure on a 44-2 bipartisan vote and sent the bill to the governor for her signature. The House earlier passed the negotiated agreement on a 64-34 vote. “The supplemental budget passed preserves critical programs, including education, and sets our state on a more sustainable path,” Gov. Chris Gregoire said in a statement after lawmakers concluded the session. “Reaching this point wasn’t easy.” Lawmakers also passed several bills overnight before taking up the budget. The flurry of activity over the past two days was the culmination of months of negotiations over how to close a roughly half-billion dollar shortfall for the two-year budget cycle ending June 2013.Sen. Ed Murray, Senate Democrats’ lead budget writer, lauded the fact that lawmakers didn’t make cuts to K-12 or higher education, as they have in past budgets.last_img read more

Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghoshs car attacked

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh’s car was attacked by unidentified miscreants at Khatra in Bankura district, the police said today. The incident happened when Ghosh was returning to his hotel in Khatra after attending a dinner at a party worker’s house in the area, they said. “Stones were hurled at my vehicle by some miscreants last night,” Ghosh said adding that they were also abusing the BJP. Ghosh, who is an MLA, later filed a complaint with the police. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life The BJP blamed miscreants “associated with the ruling TMC” for the attack. The Bankura district TMC leadership termed the allegation as “baseless” and said the attack was a fallout of the infighting in the state BJP and has nothing to do with the ruling party. The police said they were enquiring into the incident. The car of another BJP leader Samik Bhattacharya, a former MLA, was yesterday attacked by miscreants while he was on his way to attend a meeting at Chakdaha in Nadia district.last_img read more

Delhi women going organic

first_imgIn the coming weeks, New Delhi’s Dilli Haat will be the hub of India’s most varied offerings of organic products ranging from food, wellness, personal care, home improvement, kitchen composters and solar products. Organized on an annual basis by the Union Ministry of Women & Child Development since 2015, the ‘Women of India Organic Festival 2017’, celebrates and promotes women entrepreneurs and farmers in the organic field from across India. Participants from the remotest parts of the country will have the opportunity to travel and stay in Delhi free of cost for the entire duration of the exhibition, while selling their unique merchandise to the people of Delhi and surrounding areas. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfUnion Minister for Women & Child Development, Maneka Sanjay Gandhi explains the importance of making the shift to organic, “Organic food items have been proven to contain far more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than similar foods produced with chemical fertilizers, pesticides and preservatives. Economically too, organic farming is preferable since it ultimately reduces cost of cultivation by 20-40% and increases the incomes of farmers by improving quality of production as well as the quality of soil. Above all, children are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of pesticide exposure. Now with the affordability factor coming into organic produce, we should all make a concerted effort to promote this sustainable alternative, thereby boosting the financial well-being of farmers as well as the health and longevity of consumers especially children.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveSeeing the success of last year’s ‘Women of India (WOI) Organic Festival’ in Delhi, the Ministry has extended the duration of the festival from 10 days to 15 days for this year’s edition. The festival is intended to highlight the health and environmental advantages of organic goods, provide a platform for women engaged in it and boost the development of sustainable and easily accessible sales outlets for women producers from the remotest corners of India. Organic farming relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost, vermiculture and natural methods of pest control. Organic plants and food crops have also been found to contain higher amounts of salicylic acid which fights bowel cancer and the hardening of arteries that leads to heart conditions, strokes and other ailments. To make the organic movement more mainstream, the Ministry of Women & Child Development has launched an open contest to create the logo design for the 2017 edition of ‘Women of India Organic Festival.’ This would be an opportunity for participating individuals to see their creative efforts on the national stage via India’s largest organic festival. The ‘Women of India Organic Festival 2017’ will have producers and manufacturers of organic products from Delhi, NCR and Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and many other Indian states. Last year’s edition had thousands of people thronging to Dilli Haat each day. Over 500 women entrepreneurs from Leh to Kanyakumari and from Kohima to Kutch, came together to be a part of this festival.last_img read more

Forget Bali and Fiji our beaches are better say Aussies

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Popular Broome. Image: Tourism Australia Six out of ten Australians rate their own beaches higher than those of their most popular overseas destinations, research by Tourism Australia has revealed.Comparing six of Australia’s most well known coastlines – Queensland’s Gold Coast, Tropical North and Whitsundays, Western Australia’s Broome/Exmouth/Ningaloo Reef, South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula/Kangaroo Island and Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula/Wineglass Bay – with the shores of perennial overseas favourites Bali, Fiji and Thailand, the Domestic Consumer Demand Survey took into account the opinions of 1,200 “high yielding” Aussie travellers, assessing the relative appeal and factors most influencing destination choices.With 60 percent of respondents rating Australian beaches higher than those on offer elsewhere, TNQ and Broome/Exmouth/Ningaloo ranked as the top two beach destinations, while the Gold Coast and The Whitsundays also placed higher than those overseas.   The appeal of Aussie beaches was further evidenced by the 35 percent of respondents who said they would be more likely to holiday on an Australian beach. By comparison, only 24 percent said they would more likely take off overseas.        Although young couples without children expressed a preference for international holidays, older travellers without kids ranked Broome/Exmouth/Ningaloo highest, while The Whitsundays ranked highest among the all-important family market.  When considering a destination, value for money was cited as the most important factor followed by natural beauty, climate safety and accommodation options. Interestingly, only 38 percent of respondents considered Australia a more expensive destination, compared to 32 percent saying overseas.Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy said the study proved the “enduring appeal” of the Australian beachside holiday among Aussie families, saying the study was “proof positive that our country offers some of the most beautiful, safe and high quality beach holiday experiences in the world”.last_img read more
