The plans are also fraught with complications involving myriad moving pieces but would entail breaking apart AOL’s two main business: its legacy dial-up Internet service and display advertising business.In many respects, the latest discussions echo plans contemplated back in 2008 and 2009 before Time Warner spun off AOL to Time Warner shareholders. AOL has continued to explore a break up option since the December 2009 spin off.“You can drive the pieces into people’s hands that could pay top dollar for them and create value, or spin them off,” said one of the sources.This type of structure would also be contingent on the buyers for the parts, including Yahoo and EarthLink, whose strategies have changed since Time Warner had considered these plans, said the sources.These plans come amid a painful turn-around strategy led by AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, who has quickly divested weak properties such as social networking website Bebo, and buying high profile blogging network site TechCrunch.

Tullow in $2.9bn Uganda deal

Tullow will retain a third share.Analysts said the price was in line with expectationsThe deal leaves unresolved a massive tax dispute with the government. Uganda’s energy minister Hilary Onek said the country would receive a total of $472m in taxes from the farmdown deal. Tullow, however, said this figure was calculated incorrectly and that it believes the total liability to be “significantly less” than the $141m it has agreed to deposit with the government pending discussions on the matter.Additionally, Tullow, Total and CNOOC have agreed to deposit $313m with the government while Uganda pursues Heritage Oil, Tullow’s former partner in the fields, for $404m in taxes the government says is due on the sale of its interests to Tullow.Tullow said it expected this money would be repaid but it was unclear if the companies will receive any interest on the deposit while the Heritage dispute rumbles on. The matter is expected to take a year to settle.Tullow said up to $10bn will be spent developing the field, partly on the construction of a small refinery and a pipeline to the East African coast – activities in which the oil explorer has little experience.

Kirsteen Mackay | Tuesday, 17th November, 2020 | More on: VOD See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Enter Your Email Address News of imminent Covid-19 vaccines with over 90% success rates boosted a stock market rally last week and this. It came after the markets welcomed Joe Biden as America’s next president after a prolonged period of election uncertainty. In response, the FTSE 100 financial index has been skyrocketing through November, rising 786 points (14%) so far. This excitement is propelled by cheap shares that are seeing renewed interest.The vaccine news came from pharma star Pfizer and its partner BioNTech with hopes of distribution before the year end. But with Moderna‘s vaccine announcement yesterday, alongside other manufacturers sending out positive signals, there’s renewed hope for the downtrodden stocks of 2020. It may also mark the beginning of the end to so much uncertainty overwhelming the markets this year.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…FTSE 100: going long on cheap sharesThe ups and downs of the pandemic fallout have divided the FTSE 100 throughout 2020. There are high-flying stocks reaching astronomical valuations versus oppressed companies that investors are steering clear of. But now I think it’s time to take another look for cheap shares that could rise again and make shareholders rich. Buy and hold is my favourite investment strategy, and the FTSE 100’s quality range of dividend stocks make this a lucrative area from which to pick cheap shares.Time to buy Vodafone shares?One of these is Vodafone Group (LSE:VOD). Its shares were up yesterday morning on better than expected interim results. Revenue declines are thankfully slowing across its key business areas, and it’s proven more resilient to the pandemic than projected. During this six-month period to September, the FTSE 100 blue-chip swung to a €1.6bn net profit, compared with a €1.9bn loss year-on-year.Despite positive signs of underlying momentum, store closures and the halt to travel disrupted some of its income streams. Vodafone travellers often incur high roaming charges, which is one lucrative revenue stream the FTSE 100 telecoms giant has lost out on this year. Other than that, its adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) fell 1.9% to €7bn. Its full-year projections include free cash flow of at least €5bn and EBITDA ranging €14.4bn-€14.6bn. This all points to an overall improvement and strength at its core.Shareholders who bought at the end of October are already seeing a 20% bump in their investment. That’s an impressive return for so-called ‘boring’ cheap shares often avoided as perpetual ‘value traps’. Particularly with an impressive dividend yield on top.Source: VodafoneBanking dividends from VodafoneVodafone’s dividend is sitting at a 6.4% yield on today’s share price, yet its share price remains down, close to 17% year-to-date. Understandably, some investors may question its decision to continue paying dividends. Particularly as so many FTSE 100 stocks have halted theirs. However, with cash in the bank and profits coming in, the dividend makes a welcome addition and ensures Vodafone remains appealing in a long-term portfolio.Vodafone is investing heavily in 5G technology and, for this reason, I think it could be in a strong position of growth in the years ahead. I think 5G will ensure it continues to attract customers and improve its profits. Pricing will always be key to keeping customers and, this being a cutthroat industry, the FTSE 100 giant will need to remain competitive on price.I like cheap shares and would happily buy Vodafone stock as an addition to a long-term portfolio.

Who’s really to blame

first_imgIt is no exaggeration to say that the capitalist class in the U.S. has, for well more than a century, worked hard to instill fear and hatred of immigrants in order to divert attention from the real problems it creates for those not born with a silver spoon in their mouth.In the early years of industrialization, when the working class was first organizing unions to fight for better pay and working conditions, the powers that be targeted immigrant workers for ferocious repression. The Haymarket martyrs — four workers framed up and executed in Chicago in the 1880s for deaths at a police-inspired riot during a massive rally for the 8-hour day — were all immigrants. Another notorious case involved Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, Italian immigrants who were executed in 1927 after a notorious frameup trial in Boston.Trump’s ranting against immigrants, to the point of shutting down the government in his effort to get Congress to fund his $5.7 billion wall, follows in this long, sordid tradition. This vicious bigot is holding hostage both government workers and the services they provide.Yet even more painfully victimized by this ruling-class campaign are the migrants themselves, and especially their children. The news finally leaked out that small, vulnerable children were being snatched away from their parents at the border and held practically incommunicado for long periods. This has aroused great sympathy in the hearts of many in this country and led to countless protests and demonstrations to reunite them with their parents. The most recent reports reveal the government has not kept track of these children and doesn’t even know how many are still separated. Such disregard for families is a crime against humanity. The billionaires who own this country do everything they can to direct public anger away from the fact that their class is responsible for the growing misery workers face here. The disgustingly super-rich badly need scapegoats and have made immigrants their target — even though the percentage of recent immigrants in the population is at one of its lowest levels ever. It should never be forgotten that everyone here who is not Indigenous or Black is descended from immigrants. Black people were dragged here in chains, but most of the rest came willingly, looking for a better life.That better life, however, is increasingly at risk as capitalism replaces labor with machines. What workers here need to know is that it is the profit system itself that is the cause of such great instability and growing misery today. That’s what is taking their jobs — not immigrants. The irony is that the new technology now pushing workers onto the scrapheap could be used to make life better for everyone. An end to back-breaking labor? Great! An end to repetitive, mindless jobs? Terrific! The ability to produce food, clothing and shelter in abundance? Wonderful!But not under capitalism. For every new robot or computer-driven machine, more workers lose their skilled jobs. With the spread of advanced technology comes the deskilling of more and more workers, the rise of the gig economy and a new kind of poverty based on part-time, temporary, low-paid work that won’t cover rent, food and transportation for one person, let alone a family.The early victims of anti-immigrant hysteria in this country were often workers from Europe who were “infected” with ideas of a better society based on sharing instead of exploitation. Many of today’s immigrants, too, come with a history of organizing and fighting the bosses in the countries they left. Some of the best organizers of low-paid workers here have been immigrants from Latin America, Africa and Asia.You can be sure that the bosses who put Trump in power know that. And while they often cringe at his outlandish behavior, they’re grateful for his anti-immigrant rhetoric which is aimed at disorienting workers here who have every reason to fight these super-rich parasites.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

More Debate on Indiana Road Funding Expected this Week

first_img SHARE Previous articleBower Trading Market Strategy Report: The Bears are Ready for the ReportsNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 27, 2017 SHARE More Debate on Indiana Road Funding Expected this Week Facebook Twitter Indiana road funding updateMore funding for Indiana roads, including agriculture’s push for rural infrastructure improvements, should move to the next step this week as the Indiana Senate Tax and Fiscal Policy committee hears House Bill 1002. That’s scheduled for Tuesday morning.This session road funding is the number one issue for state commodity groups and Indiana Farm Bureau, not to mention legislators like farmer and House Ag Committee Chairman Don Lehe from White County.“We see it in the rural areas,” he said. “Roads need help, whether it’s state roads or local roads, and a lot of what we’re doing will address the local road concerns, but also all the aspects of agriculture involved with the transportation, bridges, are very important. I think we’ll come out of the session hopefully with a feasible, long range plan for generating another $1 billion a year which is the challenge. Some of that is not going to be real popular as far as the sources if it’s taxing or fees and so forth.”Lehe says most people, especially in agriculture see the state’s need for the funding, and expects a good bill to pass.“I do think we’re going to have some positive things,” he told HAT. “Some of it may be phased in but I think we’re committed to that end and we will do what we can to make sure it happens.”Indiana Farm Bureau supports the increased user fees through the gas taxes and registration fees and the shifting of sales tax on gas for road funding. Justin Schneider at INFB is asking members to take the time to communicate with your state senator.“It’s important that they hear from us. They need to understand that we want to see 1002 passed. We understand that they’re going to have to raise taxes and we know that’s not easy for some folks, they don’t want to do that. But the reality is the money has to come from somewhere and this is tied to use of the road, which our policy supports.”Schneider is Director of State Government Relations at Indiana Farm Bureau.

Cork man on trial for sexual assault of family members

first_imgPrint Email The victim, who is now 33 years old, told the jury of six men and six women of how the defendant promised to teach her to drive and sat her on his lap. She couldn’t reach the pedals and all she did was steer the car. When they were finished, he told her, “I did you a favour, now you can do one for me”. He put her hand around his penis and forced her to masturbate him.After being dropped home, she met the man again at the local shop and he gave her 50 pence.Defence counsel Paddy McGrath SC questioned the plausibility of the incident and suggested that the victim had an ulterior motive to “get him back” for the break up of his marriage to her sister.The woman, who broke down twice in the witness box, told of on a number of occasions when she asked the defendant for money.“I’d often ask for money and he would say I would have to find it and that it would be in his pocket. There was a hole in his pocket. I didn’t masturbate him, I could just feel his penis.”Accepting that she had a problem with alcohol in the past, she said the incidents happened three or four times over a two year period, but the details were very vague.“I blotted the whole thing out. I drank heavily through my 20s, I am three years sober now and I thought the memories would just go away when I stopped”.Referring to an encounter she had with family members of his client’s new partner, Mr McGrath claimed that the witness was out to get his client for a long time.The woman denied saying in December 2000 that she was going to “get him, I don’t know how but I will get him”. However she accepted that she wanted him punished “for what he did” to all her family.She added that her family “didn’t have the nerve to come forward”. She was the first to make a statement but the decision to go to the gardaí was a “decision made together”.Prosecuting counsel Michael Collins said the court will hear from up to six victims of alleged sexual abuse.The trial continues before Judge Carroll Moran and is expected to last into next week. Twitter Facebook Linkedin A WOMAN has told Limerick circuit court of how she was forced to masturbate her former brother-in-law when she was just 11 years of age after he promised to teach her to drive.The evidence was heard at the opening day of the trial of a 50-year-old man from North Cork who pleaded not guilty to 13 charges of indecent and sexual assault. The victims include his former sister-in-law; three neices of his former wife as well as his own son and daughter.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up NewsLocal NewsCork man on trial for sexual assault of family membersBy admin – January 30, 2013 884 Advertisement Previous articleMother was forced to smuggle tablets into prisonNext articleActing FAST to save lives admin WhatsApplast_img read more
