BP shares rise to six-month high after Shell bid report

first_img Share Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 4 January 2011 5:07 am BP shares rise to six-month high after Shell bid report John Dunne Tags: NULL whatsapp Shares in oil major BP hit a six-month high after reports that rival Royal Dutch Shell had considered a takeover bid during the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.BP shares were up 4.3 per cent to 485.65 pence as the market opened.The Daily Mail, citing sources close to the Anglo-Dutch group, reported Shell weighed an opportunistic bid for BP as crude gushed into the Gulf, but was discouraged by the potentially uncapped legal liabilities.The Daily Mail had said Shell could yet bid for BP if another suitor emerged but Europe’s largest oil company by market value was unlikely to be the “first mover.”Analysts and industry sources said during the crisis last summer it was likely that both US oil giant Exxon Mobil and Shell – the only companies considered large enough to mount a bid – would run the slide-rule over BP.However, the two notoriously conservative companies were seen as likely to be discouraged by the open-ended nature of BP’s liabilities.Now BP’s shares have rebounded 65 per cent from their June low at 296 pence, to give BP a market value of around $140bn (£89bn), a bid would be much harder to mount, especially for Shell which is worth over $210bn.Exxon has a market value of almost $370bn.It is uncertain whether regulators on either side of the Atlantic would support a tie-up in top tier of the industry. whatsapp More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orglast_img read more

Afghan cricketer handed six-year ban over corruption charges

first_imgLegal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Afghan cricketer handed six-year ban over corruption charges 12th May 2020 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has banned national team player Shafiqullah Shafaq from all forms of cricket for six years after he admitted to breaching the organisation’s Anti-Corruption Code.Shafaq, a wicketkeeper and right-handed batsman, accepted four charges related to the Code, in reference to the first edition of the Afghanistan Premier League T20 (APL T20) in 2018 and the 2019 Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).The first breach was in relation to Article 2.1.1 of the Code, which refers to fixing or influencing, or being party to an agreement to fix, the result, progress, conduct or any other aspect of a domestic match.Shafaq also admitted to a breach of Article 2.1.3, which relates to seeking, accepting, offering or agreeing to accept a bribe or reward to fix, contrive or influence any aspect of a domestic match.This in turn resulted in a breach of Article 2.1.4, in reference to attempting to solicit, induce, entice, persuade, encourage or intentionally facilitate a participant to breach Article 2.1.In addition, Shafaq was found in breach of Article 2.4.4, which refers to failing to disclose to the designated anti-corruption official full details of any approaches or invitations to engage in corrupt conduct.The ACB said Shafaq chose to admit the charges levied against him and agreed to the sanctions in lieu of an Anti-Corruption Tribunal hearing.Speaking about the charges, ACB senior anti-corruption manager, Sayed Anwar Shah Quraishi, said without Shafaq’s admission of guilt and full cooperation with ACU during the investigation, the ban could have been much longer.Quraishi added that Shafaq is willing to contribute to ACB anti-corruption unit (ACU) future integrity education programs to help younger players learn from his mistakes.“This is a very serious offence where a senior national player is involved in the corruption of a high-profile domestic game in APL T20 2018.” Quraishi said. “The player had also attempted but failed to get one of his teammates to engage in corruption in another high-profile game during the BPL 2019.”“It is an alert for all those players who think their illegal activities concerning the game of cricket will not be disclosed to the ACB’s ACU. Our coverage is vaster than what is perceived.”“During our educational program, we always instruct players to report each suspicious activity in order to keep the game cricket and their own careers clean of any corrupt practices.”The ban comes after Pakistan Cricket Board last month banned national team player Umar Akmal from all forms of the sport for three years after he was found to have breached its regulations related to match-fixing.center_img The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has banned national team player Shafiqullah Shafaq from all forms of cricket for six years after he admitted to breaching the organisation’s Anti-Corruption Code.

This is a project of public equipment and housing that includes a neighborhood center,  an after-school care facility, an office for the brussels’ port authorities, a common garden and 16 social housing of passive energetic standard.Save this picture!© Maxime Delvaux – B612 AssociatesThe project is located in Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, at the corner of an urban block, along the Brussels-Charleroi’s canal. Positioned only a few steps from the canal lock, it occupies a strategic position in an industrial urban district, currently undergoing important urban regeneration. Save this picture!© Maxime Delvaux – B612 AssociatesIn this context, the design of the architectural volume has sought to create, at the scale of the city, an anchor and a reference point, that can accompany and support the revitalization of a still unattractive neighborhood.Save this picture!© Maxime Delvaux – B612 AssociatesThe compactness of the building and the proposition for a higher volume have allowed to free the center of the block (converted into semi-public garden) and introduce some qualitative breathing within the uniformity of the industrial fabric.  The project brings vegetation in a very “ungreen” area and creates permeability and fluidity between the heart of the building and its neighborhood.  From a perceptual and functional point of view, the generosity and legibility of the circulations, the shared outdoor areas and the welcome areas of the building, are all invitations for dialogue and exchanges. They create a real synergy between the building and its surroundings that favors social exchanges.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionThe proposed volume is simple, rational but varied. The facades of the project are generously but adequately opened. They express, reflect on and talk about the functions they shelter. Moreover, the privileged position of the housing functions, in the higher part of the building, provides them with optimum-sunshine and spectacular views. At the same time, the equipments, distributed between the first 2 levels of the building, hold  as well an ideal position.  Largely open and transparent, they are closely interacting, as needed, with the public spaces around.Save this picture!© Maxime Delvaux – B612 AssociatesThe project has been awarded  “exemplary building” for its performance in energy, technical and environmental approach as well as for its careful study of its context.Save this picture!© Maxime Delvaux – B612 AssociatesProject gallerySee allShow lessAlma Negra Wine Bar / SA EstudioSelected ProjectsThe Memory / 23o5studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Brussels, BelgiumLocation to be used only as a reference.

The organization pairs first-year students with juniors to mentor throughout their first and second year of college. Those students are paired with mentors from within their major or minor and each mentor is paired with one or two first-year students.This year is different though, the class of 2021 participating in L4L is record setting.“It’s the biggest class we’ve had thus far,” said Darryl Wyrick, Leaders for Life coordinator. “Before now the L4L program had class sizes of like 60 or 70…but this year we started at 148.”The junior cohort of L4L begins its first year of mentorship this semester. Students said they are excited for what being a mentor can bring.“I’ve been in L4L for three years now,” said Lauren Waldman, junior secondary education, and history major. “It has really helped shape me as a leader because I had an amazing mentor my freshman and sophomore year of college. I can’t wait to be a mentor now.”Wyrick has been working with L4L since last summer. Despite his brief career with the program so far, he already has a vision of what he wants it to be in the future.“I want it to be something you reflect on and say man ‘TCU—my experience would not have been the same without that program,’” said Wyrick. “I know my TCU experience would not be the same had I not met the students I get to work with and I’m so thankful for that.”Wyrick said he wants people to know that this won’t be the last time they hear about the program.“L4L is a pretty beasty program,” said Wyrick. “Look out, because it’s only getting bigger and better.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Review: Ali and Mortensen bring the ’60s to life in Peter Farrelly’s ‘Green Book’ Live Blog: Medical School Receives Preliminary Accreditation ReddIt Twitter Previous articleKaleo attendees reflect on their summerNext articleHoroscopes: September 15, 2017 Megan Guter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ TCU community honors loved ones during National Suicide Prevention Week Facebook Megan Guter is a senior journalism major and FTDM minor from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Understanding Islam in Irish education

first_imgEmail No vaccines in Limerick yet by Kathy MastersonMARY Immaculate College this week held a one-day seminar entitled ‘Understanding Islam in Irish Education’ exploring the contribution Islam has made to Irish education and culture.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Attendees, which included Arabic and Muslim scholars in addition to current MIC B.Ed students, were given the opportunity to attend workshops dealing with various topics such as Islamic Challenges and Irish Education; Teaching about Islam and Arabic Music and Popular Culture.Conference organiser Dr Tony Langlois said: “There has never been a more important time to understand Islamic culture. Without this understanding we are prey to negative media representations and unfounded bias.”He continued: “If we are not well informed ourselves, then how are we to explain Islam to children, either as teachers or citizens? The seminar was organised with B Ed. students in mind, as there are currently limited resources available to teachers which prepare them to educate children about Islam.’Feedback from the seminar will be collated in order to produce a report on the current understanding of Islam in Irish education, to make recommendations, provide the opportunity to create future collaborations to develop from the recommendations made.via Understanding Islam in Irish education (186) | Limerick Post Newswrite.
