Under these conditions, Lagardère will steadfastly continue as planned to proceed with the broader, more encompassing arbitration (arbitration on merits) to obtain compensation from CAF,” read the statement.‘The Lagardère group deems the actions of CAF to be unwarranted and will take all action at its disposal to defend its interests, mitigate the impact of any immediate harm to its business and protect the interests of its shareholders.” Cricket Cricket last_img read more

Since the Rolls-Royce Group (LSE: RR) recapitalisation plan was revealed, the shares have jumped. Since a low point on 2 October, the Rolls-Royce share price has more than doubled. We’re looking at a 125% leap. What a great short-term profit that is for whoever braved it.Rolls-Royce has been among the most dependable FTSE 100 investments for decades. Its engines power a significant portion of the world’s aviation industry. And the company has a very attractive business model.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rolls doesn’t make its profits from the sales of its engines. No, the money comes from long-term maintenance, repairs and parts contracts. Once an airline has committed itself to a fleet of Rolls-powered planes, you’ve immediately got a predictable stream of earnings. Well, until something like a global pandemic grounds the bulk of the world’s fleets, that is.I’m sure the aviation business will recover, though I doubt we’ll see 2019 volumes again for some time. And demand for Rolls-Royce’s services will surely strengthen. The big questions hang over the firm’s ability to survive the slump. The answer, for now, is the new recapitalisation plan announced on 1 October. I’m not surprised the share price has responded positively.Another fallen shareInternational Consolidated Airlines is in a similar position. It too has just enjoyed a successful capital raise. Since the firm announced its lifesaving deal, the IAG share price has stabilised. And it’s now up around 15% since its lowest point in the crash. IAG shares are still down more than 80% so far in 2020, but the company looks to be in a reasonable shape to make it through to the end of the crisis, and beyond.But athough I’m optimistic about the long-term future for the airline group, I’m not going to buy. That’s partly because I fear the company will still need further funding. And it’s partly because of my renewed caution over buying recovery stocks. That caution extends to Rolls-Royce too.The Rolls-Royce share price had suffered almost exactly the same fall as the IAG share price. But now the recapitalisation’s in place, it’s responded significantly more positively. But we still need to put it into perspective. After the rebound, the shares are now down only 65% in 2020. That’s around three times the fall in the FTSE 100, which is down 22%, as I write.Rolls-Royce share price recoverySo to answer the question, is there still time to get on any Rolls-Royce recovery, I think the answer is an obvious yes. The thing is, what we’ve seen in these past weeks most certainly isn’t a real recovery yet. Over the next few weeks, it’s anybody’s guess where the Rolls-Royce share price might go. And I think there’s every chance it could drift lower again.I won’t buy myself, as I don’t buy recovery stocks until I see what’s at the end of the tunnel. But if you do invest for recovery, I strongly recommend you judge it on the long-term picture, and not on the share price behaviour over a few weeks during the worst of the crash.

NEPAD Meeting

first_img April 6, 2021 Find out more Central African RepublicAfrica For their part, the five heads of state promoting the NEPAD should be beyond reproach in this area. It is up to them to lead the way in order to earn credibility in the eyes of their people, the international community, and Africa’s economic partners. And, yet, even they are not exemplary. Organisation RSF_en In anticipation of the meeting of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) at the Elysée Palace on February 8, 2002, RSF has addressed a letter to the five heads of State in charge of the steering committee of this project. In four countries, press freedom is not guaranteed. There are numerous violations, which are never sanctioned. In Burkina Faso, over three years after the assassination of Norbert Zongo, director of the weekly L’Indépendant, on December 13, 1998 the investigation is at a standstill. Those who ordered the assassination are still at large and total impunity reigns. The brother of the President of the Republic, François Compaoré, strongly implicated in this affair, was heard for the first time by the examining magistrate in January 2001, more than two years after the events. Central African RepublicAfrica In Ethiopia, despite a relative improvement, a journalist is still being detained after more than a year for having quoted the views of activists interviewed by a foreign radio station in his newspaper. The audio-visual industry still remains under state control. News Although RSF cannot but wholeheartedly encourage a project aimed at promoting “peace, security, democracy, good governance, human rights and sound economic management”, the organization considers that these goals cannot be reached without the existence of a free press. It is not realistic, for example, to try to fight corruption when journalists are taken to task the moment they denounce frauds involving the authorities or high-ranking officials. This initiative is doomed to failure if the Member States are not exemplary in terms of freedom of information. And yet, in ten of the fifteen nations that make up the NEPAD Heads of state and government committee, journalists are being imprisoned, mistreated, attacked or threatened, and there is media censorship. In Tunisia, pressure from the regime has continued to increase on the rare journalists still doing their jobs as best they can on the margins of a press under the yoke of the authorities. The trial of Hamma Hammami and his colleagues recently showed that the legal system is also at the beck and call of President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali. In anticipation of the meeting of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) at the Elysée Palace on February 8, 2002, Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF) has addressed a letter to the five heads of State in charge of the steering committee: Mr Abdelaziz Bouteflika (Algeria), Mr Hosni Moubarak (Egypt), Mr Olusegun Obasanjo (Nigeria), Mr Abdulaye Wade (Senegal) and Mr Thabo Mbeki (South Africa). RSF wishes to draw their attention to repeated violations of the freedom of the press by several NEPAD Member States. Receive email alerts December 13, 2019 Find out more Follow the news on Central African Republic Press freedom is still under fire in Algeria where no investigation has been carried out to find three journalists kidnapped by the security forces between 1995 and 1997. In May 2001, the Algerian parliament adopted draft amendments to the penal code, introducing harsher sentences and fines for press offences. And at the beginning of 2002, three journalists were questioned by the police following complaints lodged by the Ministry of Defense. Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR RSF decries arbitrary blocking of two CAR news websites February 6, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 NEPAD Meeting May 13, 2020 Find out more News In Egypt, the authorities continue to put pressure on journalists, and two press professionals are currently in prison. In Nigeria, in less than a year, seventeen journalists have been attacked, often by the police. In Senegal, several recent attacks on journalists show that press freedom remains fragile, and the authorities need to be particularly vigilant. In the same way, in South Africa, where press freedom is globally respected, several journalists have been brought before the legal authorities, who want them to testify in criminal cases. News Help by sharing this information CAR policeman who shot reporter must be punished, RSF says News to go further In Rwanda, journalists are still being threatened and leaned on, and at least two have been in prison for several years for simply doing their jobs. Self-censorship is rife, and journalists are unable to cover certain subjects without inciting the wrath of the authorities. The audio-visual industry is exclusively at the service of the government.last_img read more

A theoretical determination of the characteristic equation of snow in the pendular regime

first_imgRecent mathematical models treat a natural snow-pack as a mixture body consisting of solid ice grains, liquid water, and a gas made up of air and water vapour. Such a model requires two independent constitutive equations for the two independent volume fractions. However, so far only one equation, a power law relating the liquid-water content to capillary pressure, has been suggested, by analogy with the so-called “characteristic” equation for liquid water in soils. Experimental data from drainage tests on snow columns may be used to determine the characteristic equation for snow for relatively high water contents. However, the experimental method is not valid when water exists in isolated inclusions in the snow, i.e. in the pendular regime. In this paper a theoretical method is used to derive two independent volume-fraction laws for snow in the pendular regime.last_img

Growth and population structure in the infaunal bivalve Yoldia eightsi in relation to iceberg activity at Signy Island, Antarctica

first_imgGrowth rates in the infaunal nuculanid bivalve mollusc Yoldia eightsi (Couthouy) were assessed for field populations in Factory Cove, Signy Island, Antarctica, between. February and April 1992. Daily increments in length (maximum shell dimension) ranged from 2.3 μm d-1 for a 30 mm individual to 5.1 μm d-1 for a 10 mm specimen. These growth rates were converted to annual increments, based on a growing season for the Signy population of around 5 mo, and ages for the largest individuals in the population (35 mm in length), were calculated to be ≃65 yr. Specimens of 43 mm in length have been found near this site and, if their growth rates are similar to this population, their ages would be in the order of 120 yr. Size distributions from two sites in the same Y. eightsi bed 300 m apart showed significant differences. At the more exposed site the distribution was dominated by small juveniles, with 86% of the population 10 mm in length, while 13% were >20 mm in length. At the less exposed site the values were 27% 20 mm. Icebergs have often been seen grounded on the Y. eightsi bed in this study, especially on the exposed outer portion. This factor, in association with inhibition of larval settlement by high densities of large individuals, is proposed as an explanation of the observed population distributions and the absence of very large specimens in the Factory Cove population.last_img read more
