Rio Tinto’s Australian thermal coal production increased to 5.15m tonnes from 5.02m.The company said it was unable to estimate the full impact to coal mining operations from Australian flooding, and that force majeure declarations on some sales contracts remained in place after Australia’s wettest spring on record. A force majeure is a legal clause that allows a company to miss deliveries because of circumstances beyond its control. The floods led Australia and London-listed Rio Tinto to make declarations of force majeure on coal sales over the Christmas period.And last week the company declared another force majeure after halting shipments of aluminium from its 538,000-tonnes-per-year Boyne Island smelter. Rio Tinto’s mined and refined copper output was down nine per cent and six per cent on the fourth quarter of 2009 and down 16 per cent and five per cent on full-year 2009.The report showed total production of mined copper from the world’s biggest mine, Escondida in Chile, increased to 786,800 tonnes in 2010 from 774,400 in 2009, but dropped to 194,600 tonnes in the fourth quarter from 233,000 a year ago.

5 UK shares I’d buy for a passive income

first_img Recently, I’ve been scouting out cheap UK shares to buy to help me achieve my goal of generating a passive income stream. There are plenty of options. Indeed, many blue-chip FTSE 100 stocks currently offer dividend yields above the market average of 4%. I’m planning to take advantage of this by acquiring a basket of these shares to generate a passive income for life. 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…Passive income streamThe first blue-chip income stock on my radar is British American Tobacco. At the time of writing, this stock supports a dividend yield of around 8%. The distribution is well covered by earnings and free cash flow from operations.This tobacco giant also has a strong track record of above-inflation dividend growth. The fact that the enterprise hasn’t had to cut its dividend in 2020 stands testament to the strength of the payout, in my opinion.Some investors might want to avoid British American due to ethical considerations. Luckily, there are plenty of other UK shares with similarly attractive dividend credentials. Two examples are mining giants Rio Tinto and BHP. Five years ago, these companies were in trouble. A decade of excess spending had left the businesses with significant levels of debt. A commodity price crash compounded problems. Their managements had to take evasive action to restore investor confidence.The actions yielded the desired results. Both companies have significantly reduced borrowings, and cost-cutting efforts have helped improve profit margins. Now, they almost have too much cash. Rio and BHP are returning vast wedges of money to shareholders, and cash piles are growing. Both stocks currently support dividend yields of more than 5%. That’s why I think they could be fantastic opportunities for a passive income portfolio. High-quality UK sharesBAE Systems was one of the UK’s top income stocks. That was until the business cut its dividend earlier this year. Thankfully, the company managed to avoid the worst of the pandemic, and management has now restored the distribution.What’s more, the UK government’s commitment to increase military spending over the next five years, is a hugely positive development for the country’s largest arms suppliers. I reckon this bodes well for future dividend growth. With a dividend yield of 4.6% already on offer, I think the enterprise has all the hallmarks of a passive income champion.Finally, I’m considering GlaxoSmithKline for my passive income portfolio of UK shares. With a dividend yield of 5.8% at the time of writing, the stock’s level of income is above the market average. Moreover, the pharmaceutical group’s defensive income stream reassures me this dividend is here to stay. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, Glaxo stuck by the payout. That’s why, in these uncertain times, I’m willing to trust the pharmaceutical giant to provide a passive income.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

This 4,200 square foot private residence situated in what was once open farmland north of Columbus is a studied response to context, lifestyle and sustainability.  Creating a series of open and contiguous spaces that support the overlaid programmatic functions and are both connected to and screened from the exterior was achieved with a simple courtyard plan. Save this picture!© Feinknopf PhotographyThe plan development followed a selective compartmentalization of the geometries of the U shaped diagram, isolating the bars and corners and reconnecting them as needed.  The center bar – the main living functions – was then exposed to the interior courtyard and isolated from the public entry(ies). Save this picture!© Feinknopf PhotographyThe focus of the interiors then became the private courtyard screened by the woods beyond.  Guest quarters and a music room were elevated above the west service bar and opposite the east master bedroom.  Save this picture!© Feinknopf PhotographyThe convention of the main singular entry and foyer was discarded in lieu of multiple identical entries sequenced along the main living areas, and no dedicated space at all.  Guests enter anywhere they like along the exterior walk and into the kitchen, dining or living areas. Save this picture!© Feinknopf PhotographyThe interior and exterior materials are minimal and basic – exposed concrete floors, white ceramic tile and bamboo wood inside and white stucco and a vertical cedar rainscreen outside.  The cedar exterior is primarily stained with the exception of a recessed portion of the south facing entry wall which uses the Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban, where the raw wood is charred and left exposed.  The house relies on autonomous infrastructure with a leach field sanitary system and geothermal heating. Project gallerySee allShow lessRogers Stirk Harbour’s Geneva Airport Design Receives Planning PermissionArchitecture NewsInfographic: The Five Structural Technologies that Shaped the History of BridgesMisc Share Bencolast_img read more

The solitary house blends in with the surroundings, lacking neighbouring buildings, away from roads. Harsh landscape prompted Przemek Olczyk, an architect and the author of the project, to use transparent and legible tectonics, thus embedding the building in the morphology of the plot.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiThe plot, of which the house takes only a small part, has a natural fold that was the starting point for the design of the building’s body. A 90 cm reinforced concrete slab suspended above the falling terrain forms an extension of the upper elevation. It produces a distinctive yet lean line from which the building takes its name and character. Reinforced concrete slab supported by the system of columns provides a clear zoning of the house; living area on the ground floor and the bedroom area on the upper floor.The horizontal layout of the building is made even more distinctive with a green roof line shifted relative to the ground floor. It gives the impression of a naturally created horizontal fracture, opening towards the lake.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiSkilful adaptation of the architecture to the structure of the plot ensures that the scale of the 500 sqm house does not overwhelm it. Manifest external stairs, characteristic more of public buildings than single-family houses, provides an interesting architectural detail. Due to the strong winds in this part of the Warmian Lake District, the design employs an atrial layout. The screen of glass walls of the building provides a transparent shield while maintaining important viewing axes for the users.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiThe internal atrium strengthens the sense ofprivacy. Depending on the needs, large curtains can be closed and opened, thus opening or closing the courtyard. The glass-walled corner on the ground floor – with a free plan – overlooks the south-west and guarantees access of natural light to the most usable area for the inhabitants.Save this picture!SectionsThe key assumption of the project, and the tenet of the philosophy of shaping space at Mobius Architects studio is to enable reception of architecture from the inside. This is the main element of work on the project, which, as emphasized by architect Przemek Olczyk, allows the investors to both “have their cake and eat it”. True to the proverb, the architecture of the house remains visible to its users, while adding value to the surroundings.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiThe layout of the building in the form of the letter “L”, in turn, reproduces the traditional organization of farm space in the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. The façades – mostly glass-walled – are supplemented with aluminium plates and ceramics. The whole is complemented by a wooden lamella detail in the gable walls, thus making a clear reference to the gables of the Warmian-Masurian cottages often decorated with boards arranged in various patterns. The simplified form of the roof with a 45 degree slope also refers to traditional rural buildings.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiA detail of the roof part is a vertical skylight, which asymmetrically divides the slope by opening the interior of the private zone to the surroundings. The roof of the building is mostly covered with grass. Onlyfrom the side of open atrium concrete slabs were used. This is an aesthetic device designed toemphasize the modern nature of the building.Save this picture!© Paweł UlatowskiProject gallerySee allShow less2G No. 79: MuotoArchitecture BooksHouse 14 / Alvano y RiquelmeSelected Projects Share Green Line House / Przemek Olczyk / Mobius Architekci ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: Swisspearl Products translation missing: ArchDaily “COPY” Photographs Year: last_img read more

Mexico: Protestas continentales para apoyar la resistencia de los/as trabajadores/as

first_imgCheryl LaBash entrevistó a Benjamin Prado de la Unión del Barrio para el periódico Workers World/Mundo Obrero. Unión del Barrio es miembro del Grupo Coordinador del ESNA (Encuentro Sindical Nuestra América), que celebró su quinta reunión continental en la ciudad de México del 21 al 23 de mayo.En el 2009, el gobierno mexicano utilizó a 27.000 agentes federales armados para apoderarse de Luz y Fuerza, el proveedor de energía para la ciudad y el centro de México, quitando a más de 40.000 miembros del Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas sus puestos de trabajo. El ataque contra este militante sindicato independiente es parte de una ofensiva capitalista más amplia contra los/as trabajadores/as mexicanos/as — incluyendo los mineros en Cananea, los/as trabajadores/as de las aerolíneas y los/as maestros — que se ha intensificado con el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN).Representantes del SME han explicado su lucha a lo largo de los Estados Unidos y han traído quejas formales bajo las regulaciones del TLCAN. El Sindicato ha organizado movilizaciones masivas y ocupaciones en el Zócalo, la plaza central de la Ciudad de México. La unidad a través de las fronteras es esencial para forzar un retroceso de la guerra globalizada del capitalismo contra los/as trabajadores/as.MO: ¿Qué tienen planeado para el 26 de junio?Prado: El 26 de junio, trabajadores/as por todo el continente se reunirán frente a las embajadas y los consulados mexicanos para demostrar su solidaridad con la clase trabajadora mexicana y sus sindicatos y protestar la política terrorista de represión estatal contra los/as trabajadores/as y sus organizaciones. Estas manifestaciones también exigirán el fin de las disputas laborales que involucran al Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (SME), Mineros, el Bloque Democrático de la Coordinadora Nacional de Trabajadores en la Educación, y los/as trabajadores/as de Mexicana de Aviación.Este llamado también pide la liberación de 12 presos políticos, todos miembros del SME que han sido detenidos por luchar por su derecho a mantener sus puestos de trabajo sindicales.MO: ¿Por qué es importante?Prado: El llamado del 26 de junio es una expresión de solidaridad entre la clase obrera con consciencia de clase de Nuestra América, destinada a levantarse unida con acciones concretas que se oponen a la política neoliberal que la oligarquía internacional financiera está tratando de imponer sobre el pueblo trabajador por todas las partes del mundo. Esta expresión de solidaridad con la clase trabajadora mexicana tiene la intención de enviar el mensaje de que un ataque contra un sector de la clase trabajadora es un ataque contra todos/as los/as trabajadores/as del mundo.Esta acción provee la oportunidad para que todos/as los/as trabajadores/as — más allá de las fronteras nacionales — estén unidos/as contra esta agresión generalizada sobre el derecho al trabajo.Además, la importancia de esta acción antes de la elección del 1º de julio es testimonio de la necesidad de un cambio político fundamental en México. Es una manifestación de apoyo a los/as trabajadores/as mexicanos/as que exigen poner fin a los partidos políticos fascistas del PAN-PRI que han impuesto la política de libre comercio — ejemplificado por el TLCAN que ha condenado a millones de trabajadores/as al desempleo, subempleo o al trabajo informal sin ninguna protección económica y social.MO: ¿Dónde se originó?Prado: La propuesta de una jornada continental de acción fue presentada a los/as delegados/as de la Quinta Conferencia del ESNA que se celebró en la Ciudad de México del 21 al 23 de mayo. En esta reunión más de 400 delegados/as mexicanos/as y otros/as 200 delegados/as que representaban más de 20 países, se reunieron para debatir y discutir el impacto del capitalismo sobre los/as trabajadores/as de la región. Su objetivo era encontrar la unidad en el pensamiento y en la acción en respuesta a la ofensiva capitalista que intenta despojar hasta el último derecho de los/as trabajadores/as y promover la acumulación de riqueza en manos de un pequeño número de empresas transnacionales e individuos. nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Durham anti-racist activists: ‘Be a witness in our defense!’

first_imgSome of the eleven stalwart anti-racist Durham activists after their court hearing, Dec. 5.By LeiLani Dowell and Ben CarrollDurham, N.C.Activists and community and family members gathered here the morning of Dec. 5 to show their support and solidarity for 11 anti-racist activists who were returning to court to face charges related to their militant challenges to white supremacy. The Dec. 5 hearing was the first time all 11, who have had several court hearings since August, appeared in court together.Inside the court, the cases of nine of the activists, who were charged in relation to the Aug. 14 removal of a Confederate statue in front of the old Durham courthouse, were continued by a judge to Jan. 11. The cases of the other two, who face charges related to an Aug. 18 community mobilization against an announced KKK march, were continued to Feb. 8. After the hearing, a rally and press conference were held.The defendants are inviting community members across Durham to sign up to be witnesses for the defense for the Jan. 11 trial.  Elena Everett, a Workers World Party member who faces charges relating to the statue removal, said: “We invite all those who believe that Durham is a better place without the monument, that the monument had no value to our community, and was in fact a liability, to sign up to be a witness. We will set up an online form and email to collect your testimony.”At the rally, the #DefendDurham group also launched a community contest for Durham residents to submit ideas of what should replace the pedestal where the Confederate monument once stood. Markers were supplied and ample paper unrolled so that community members could write and draw their ideas for a replacement.Speaking from the mic, community activist Rafiq Zaidi asserted that the Confederate monument should be replaced with a monument in tribute of “those who were bold enough to put a rope around the neck of that Confederate statue. We have suffered under this injustice and racism for far too long.”Thousands of people across North Carolina and the U.S. have signed petitions and participated in three call-in days to drop the charges — the most recent on November 30. The case has garnered national and even international attention, with many unions and other progressive organizations submitting statements to the arrestees that noted the significance of their actions and pledged support to beat the charges.In a press release prior to the hearing, Workers World Party member Loan Tran stated: “The events of Aug. 14 and 18 were an act of community service and defense. We have to remember what happened just a few days before in Charlottesville, Va., when white supremacists and neo-Confederates terrorized, occupied and brutalized its residents. Heather Heyer was murdered, and many other anti-racist activists were injured.” Tran asserted that “the eleven facing charges have done their service to the community. We call on D.A. [Roger] Echols to immediately drop the charges.”“Removing symbols of white supremacy from our community is not a crime,” said WWP member Jess Jude, one of those facing charges regarding the statue removal. “What happened on Aug. 14 was a service to the Durham community and an example of taking righteous action, a small step to correct centuries of injustice.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Second scanner at UHL by end of the year

first_imgWhatsApp University Hospital LimerickA SECOND MRI scanner has been approved for University Hospital Limerick and will be installed and running before the end of the year.Currently, there is only one MRI scanner for all public patients in the region’s main hospital, serving the whole of the Mid-West and a population of 473,000 people.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick Fine Gael Senator Maria Byrne has welcomed the news.At this week’s meeting of the House of the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Health, Senator Byrne raised her concerns with Health Minister Simon Harris over the availability of MRI scans at UHL.HSE director of acute operations Liam Woods told the committee members that as part of the HSE’s Winter Programme, University Hospital Limerick is to acquire an MRI scanner within the next two months at a cost of between €1 million to €1.4 million.“The announcement from the HSE that a second MRI scanner is set to be delivered to University Hospital Limerick before Christmas is very much-welcomed as currently there is only one MRI scanner throughout the whole of the UL Hospital Group, a service that is only provided between 8.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday,” said Senator Byrne.“Recent figures showed that up to 44 patients were waiting for an MRI scan which is why the requirement of a second MRI serving the people of the Mid-West is long overdue and badly needed to help alleviate overcrowding concerns at the Dooradoyle-based facility“I am aware of patients being taxied from UHL to Barrington’s Hospital for emergency MRI scans,” Senator Byrne added.

He will also be looking to recruit additional revenue-producing employees to add to the company’s branches.Baker comes to WFG from another title company, where he was most recently a Vice President and was responsible for strategic growth, fee attorney operations and recruiting. Before that he held several executive sales positions.”Joining WFG and leading the DFW office is a great opportunity to continue to develop in this marketplace,” Baker said. “With our current team and new recruits, we look to build on our relationships with the local real estate community to increase our market share.  Our ultimate goal is to create a better real estate experience for home buyers and sellers.”___________________________________________________________________________Wolters Kluwer Lien Solutions has introduced Portfolio Sync a lien management solution designed for lenders who use multiple methods of submitting Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings. As an addition to iLien, Lien Solutions’ flagship lien management product, Portfolio Sync combines customers’ existing iLien filings with public records data into one view, providing greater visibility into one’s entire lending portfolio—and identifies associated gaps that may require risk mitigation or other actions to maintain a lender’s secured interests.“Many lenders use multiple methods to submit UCC filings, including law firms, title companies, secretary of state offices, or third-party providers,” noted Nasser Ansari, Director, Product Management, Lien Solutions. “But this fragmented approach makes it harder to maintain an accurate, holistic view of your filings and to analyze your overall lien portfolio health, much less take corrective actions if needed. Portfolio Sync mitigates the risks posed by gaps in lenders’ filing portfolios, providing a single, web-based access point to manage all of one’s filings, regardless of how or with whom they were filed.”___________________________________________________________________________ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, announced that its ComplianceAnalyzer is now integrated with LendingPad, the cloud-based loan origination system (LOS) from WEI Technology LLC.With this integration, LendingPad users can perform real-time audits for regulatory compliance violations without leaving their LOS.

Further, on 23.03.2020, the Prime Minister of India announced a national lockdown for a period of 21 days to prevent the spread of the virus.The plea states that in order to tackle the spread of the virus, everyone must practice social distancing at Anand Vihar. However, despite knowing the same, the Respondents failed to stop the migrant workers and thereby violated Article 21 of the Constitution of India and provisions of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and Indian Penal Code, 1860.The plea goes on to highlight another incident which stems from the event which took place between 15.03.2020 and 17.03.2020 at a Markaz in Nizamuddin, wherein 24 people who had attended the event, tested positive.It has been averred that more than 2000 delegates were present at the Markaz and many have tested positive due to cluster transmission of the virus. In light of the same, Respondent No. 2 has failed to arrest the Nizamuddin Markaz chief Maulana Saad, who had organized the event.Countering averments made by Pandita in her plea, the MHA has stated in its Counter that there was no negligence or delay in dealing with the said issue by the Government authorities. The Counter highlights that,On March 21, the authorities of Markaz at Tablighi Jamat Headquarters were contacted by Delhi Police. Mufti Shahzad was apprised of the threat of COVID-19 and asked to take immediate action for preventing the spread of this disease and was directed to send the foreigners back to their respective countries and other Indian persons to their respective native places. This fell on deaf ears and no heed was given to these orders. Maulana Mohd. Saad, head of the Tablighi Jamaat’s audio recording, was found to be in circulation on social media platforms in which the speaker was heard asking his followers to defy the lockdown and social distancing and to attend the religious gathering of Markaz.”They deliberately, wilfully, negligently and malignantly disobeyed the lawful directions promulgated in this regard. Written notices were also issued to the Markaz Management” – Excerpt of Counter AffidavitClick Here To Download Counter AffidavitNext Storylast_img read more
