first_imgNew Delhi: Reliance Industries and UK’s BP plc have taken over the 10 per cent shareholding of their partner Niko Resources in the eastern offshore KG-D6 block after the Canadian firm defaulted on paying for its share of gas field development cost. Sources with knowledge of the development said the oil minister has given ‘unconditional’ nod to Reliance and BP for taking over 10 per cent interest of Niko in KG-DWN-98/3 or KG-D6 block in the Bay of Bengal. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalReliance and BP split Niko’s share in proportion to their existing shareholding in the block. Subsequent to this, Reliance’s stake in KG-D6 has gone up to 66.67 per cent from previous 60 per cent and that of BP to 33.33 per cent from 30 per cent, the sources said. E-mails sent to Reliance and BP for comments remained unanswered. Niko, which defaulted on payment of loans to its lenders, has been unsuccessful in seeking a possible buyer for its 10 per cent stake in Bay of Bengal block KG-D6 or securing financing for its share of the $5 billion R-Cluster, Satellite Cluster and MJ development projects in the block. This led to the company defaulting in making payments for its share of development cost in early October 2018.last_img read more

first_imgTUNIS – Tunisia’s Industry Minister Mehdi Jomaa, chosen late on Saturday as premier-designate to lead the country out of crisis, is a little-known newcomer with limited political experience.Parties picked Jomaa to head a government of independent figures aimed at rescuing the North African nation from months of festering political stalemate.His political career began only in March this year when he was appointed to the cabinet. According to a deal clinched between Tunisia’s main parties in October, the new premier now has 15 days to form a government of independents.However, this timeframe has not been confirmed, and Jomaa himself has not yet made any public comment.He also faces the weighty task of organising elections in 2014.Jomaa is a 51-year-old engineer with no stated political affiliation. He is married and has five children.He graduated from the National Engineering School of Tunis in 1988 before taking a higher degree in mechanics, his official biography published by state news agency TAP said.He then went on to a career in the private sector, and headed a division of Hutchinson, the aerospace unit of French conglomerate Total.He became industry minister following the formation in March of a new government by Ali Larayedh in the crisis that erupted following the assassination a month earlier of key opposition figure Chokri Belaid.Since then, Jomaa has stayed aloof from the country’s political jockeying and focused on his portfolio.In particular, he has lobbied European firms to invest in the country, plagued by economic woes since the ouster nearly three years ago of dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.But he has also taken the unpopular step of backing a decision to raise fuel prices next year.Jomaa was chosen a day after the candidate agreed on by the outgoing Islamist-led government and the mostly secular opposition, 92-year-old Mustapha Filali, ruled himself out because of his age.Ennahda has led a coalition government since Tunisia, the birthplace of the “Arab Spring”, held its first ever democratic elections in October 2011.According to Mahmoud Baroudi of the Democratic Alliance, an opposition movement to Ennahda, Jomaa “is competent and independent enough to take on the post of premier”.But another opposition party, Nidaa Tounes, which boycotted Saturday’s vote, rejected the idea of a premier who was part of the outgoing government.Issam Chebbi, a leader of the party, said Jomaa would “not be a prime minister of consensus”.One factor likely to go against him will be Jomaa’s lack of security experience, a key issue in a country facing a rising threat from extremist Islamists.The opposition accuses the current government of failing to rein in militants who have stepped up attacks, and failing to deal with an economic malaise that has led to a rise in strikes and protests.Under a roadmap brokered by mediators in October, Ennahda and the opposition pledged to negotiate an interim government of independents.The interim premier should have been agreed on by early November, but the deadline has been pushed back repeatedly since then.Unemployment and regional inequality were driving factors behind the popular uprising that unseated Ben Ali, inspiring protests across the Middle East and North Africa that toppled leaders in Egypt, Libya and Yemen.If Jomaa does succeed in forming a government of independents, the task of the new prime minister will be far from easy.But the fact his roots are not hard set in the fractious world of Tunisian politics could in the end work in his favour.last_img read more

(TSX:MDA) is reporting a second-quarter net loss of $1 million — the result of a share-based compensation expense after shares soared on an acquisition near the end of the quarter.The three cent per share loss compares to net earnings of $29.6 million or 72 cents per share in the same period last year. Revenue came in at $164 million compared to $195 million year over year.The Vancouver-based company said Thursday after markets closed that net earnings were hit by a share-based compensation expense of $32 million that had no bearing on operations or cash flow for the quarter.The expense was triggered by the sharp rise in the company’s shares after it announced it will pay US$875 million for California-based company Space Systems/Loral Inc. MDA shares soared 25 per cent on the day the deal was announced.The deal, which the company called “a game changer” will boost the Canadian space hardware maker’s role as a supplier of commercial communications satellites.MDA says operating earnings, or net earnings adjusted for specific items, were $29 million, or 91 cents per share — beating analyst estimates by two cents.Analysts expected MDA to report earnings per share of 89 cents. Revenue was targeted at $179 million, according to a poll by Thomson Reuters.MDA is best-known as the maker of the robotic arms used on the International Space Station and the now-retired U.S. space shuttles.The Vancouver-based company had attempted to sell its satellite division several years ago to U.S. defence contractor Alliant Techsystems of Edina, Minn., but was blocked from doing so by the Harper government, which cited national security reasons.It has also been involved in a variety of businesses that use satellites to collect information from space.MDA shares closed up 13 cents to 54.80 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

first_img Mar 3rd 2017, 6:10 AM 17 Comments SOME 7,000 FATHERS have availed of the paternity benefit scheme since it was introduced last September.The initiative allows fathers to take two weeks off work to help care for their newborns, while receiving a payment of €230 per week.Up to the end of January, 8,184 applications for the scheme had been received, with 6,851 of these being accepted.Social Protection Minister Leo Varadkar said the number of claims received to date is broadly in line with his department’s estimation that it could receive between 20,000 and 30,000 applications annually.Paternity benefit has the same qualifying PRSI conditionality as maternity benefit. It is only payable to employees and self-employed people who have the required number of PRSI contributions. Paid maternity leave of 26 weeks is offered to mothers.No plans for mandatory systemSpeaking in the Dáil recently, Varadkar said: “It is important to note that the legislation ensures no statutory obligation on an employer to continue to pay the normal salary during paternity leave. Employers have the option of providing a further top-up to the father’s regular salary if they so choose.In drafting the legislation we had to be conscious, in this regard, of limiting the potential additional costs for business. However, a number of employers do top up their employees’ paternity benefit in much the same way as they offer to top up maternity benefit.“There are a number of factors that determine the take up of any new scheme including, parental choice, whether the father or relevant parent has sufficient PRSI contributions, whether they are self-employed and can afford to take the time off from their business and, if an employee, whether or not their employer would top up their wages.”Varadkar added that he has no plans to introduce a mandatory system of paid paternity leave.Read: There are 27 empty houses for every one person in emergency accommodationRead: So many questions… what’s happening with water charges? 7,000 fathers have taken paid paternity leave since it was introduced The initiative allows fathers to take two weeks off work to help care for their babies, if they have enough PRSI contributions.

first_img ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… Stay on target One Punch Man is probably one of the biggest anime sensations of the last few years. I mean, even I vaguely know what it is despite firmly believing anime was a mistake. Originally a parody webcomic, One Punch Man follows bored bald superhero Saitama as he searches for evildoers who won’t be defeated after just one of his ridiculously powerful punches. After a four-year hiatus, the second season is currently airing in Japan and an English dub probably isn’t far behind.And now One Punch Man is getting its first console video game with One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Check out this first trailer!One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a 3v3 tag-team fighting game from Namco Bandai. All those details have us hoping that it’s basically the excellent Dragon Ball FighterZ just with a different wildly popular Shonen Jump anime license. However the press release doesn’t mention a developer, so it probably isn’t Arc System Works.Presumably it will take more than one punch to defeat opponents when playing as Saitama. Sometimes you need to break lore for balance’s sake. Other characters include Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, and Mumen Rider. Beyond the action though One Punch Man is beloved for its satirical salaryman humor. So hopefully the game has a strong story to honor that aspect of the anime as well.A new gameplay trailer actually explains how it all works. Since Saitama is always late to a fight, players spend most of the match a more balanced and vulnerably character. Skillful fighting hastens Saitama’s arrival, leading to a hilarious single strike victoryThere’s no release window yet for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows but fans of the series are already use to waiting. In the meantime check out these One Punch Man toys and watch this fan video where Saitama fights the Incredible Hulk.last_img read more

first_imgOLYMPIA — Three paid signature gatherers apparently committed extensive fraud while collecting support for two Washington initiatives, elections officials said Wednesday.The secretary of state’s office said many of the 8,000 signatures submitted by the collectors were invalid. The problematic filings were linked to a Tim Eyman measure that would extend the time for initiative signature collection, and another proposal that would require companies to label genetically modified food.Both initiatives are still valid because the remaining signatures were sufficient to get the measures certified, election officials said.Secretary of State Kim Wyman said the cases involve Washington’s worst apparent initiative fraud in recent history.“This kind of disrespect of the voters and our cherished initiative process cannot be tolerated, and I want these cases fully investigated and, if appropriate, as it certainly appears, I want these people prosecuted,” Wyman said in a statement.The secretary of state’s office declined to name the signature gatherers but is turning over its findings to the Washington State Patrol for investigation. Officials spotted the problems during their review of thousands of petition sheets submitted by the initiative sponsors.One of the solicitors who collected support for both campaigns submitted more than 5,000 signatures, with only about 4 to 5 percent of them being valid.Paid signature gathering has become a common part of Washington’s initiative process. Wyman said the secretary of state’s office has always feared that the pay-per-signature method encourages bad behavior.“The good news is that we do have rigorous fraud-check procedures and law enforcement that takes this seriously,” Wyman said.last_img read more

The Dell G5 15 5590 and Lenovo Legion Y540 are two of our favorites mostly because they deliver good performance for the money, but also for their designs since neither necessarily looks like a “gaming” laptop. However, if you do want a laptop that looks more aggressive, Lenovo has another body design used for its Legion Y545.  The 15-inch Lenovo Legion Y545 is essentially Lenovo’s older Legion Y7000P, which was only available at retail and not directly from Lenovo, and has a more angular chassis than the Y540, which reminds me of a black ThinkPad workstation but with Legion branding. The Y545 is available direct from Lenovo and starts at around $1,000, but you can find better pricing from retailers like NewEgg, B&H and Costco and you get a little more for your money with this model over the Y540. When it comes to the Y545 and the G5 15, though, the value difference isn’t as clear-cut.  Lenovo Legion Y7000P 66 Lenovo Legion Y545 346 3,066 48 71.5 Note: Longer bars indicate better performance Dell G5 5590 Alienware m15 Post a comment Lenovo Legion Y545 41 Photos Alienware m15 Geekbench 4 (multicore) Now playing: Watch this: Dell G5 15 5590center_img Share your voice Lenovo Legion Y730 Video playback battery drain test (streaming) 17:56 Note: Longer bars indicate better performance (FPS) 86 Mentioned Above Lenovo Legion Y545 (81T20005US) Note: Longer bars indicate better performance (fps) Lenovo Legion Y7000P Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (fps) Alienware m15 Lenovo Legion Y545 Lenovo Legion Y730 Dell G5 5590 Computers Laptops 21,528 Lenovo Legion Y730 79.2 Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit); 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-8750H; 16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,666MHz; 8GB Nvidia GeFroce GTX 1070 with Max-Q Design; 512GB SSD Lenovo Legion Y7000P 17,786 58.1 Dell G5 5590 Lenovo Legion Y545 1,899 Lenovo Legion Y730 15,615 Note: Longer bars indicate better performance 20,965 37.7 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit); 2.4GHz Intel Core i5-9300; 8GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,666MHz; 4GB Nvidia GeFroce GTX 1650; 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD Lenovo Legion Y7000P System configurations 397 Alienware m15 Dell G5 5590 Lenovo Legion Y730 3,669 Cinebench R15 CPU (multicore) 44 CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Lenovo Legion Y545 They’re both solid mainstream gaming laptops that offer similar component options at roughly the same prices give or take $50. As a result, this ends up being more about the design and a couple of feature differences than performance. Right now, at least. Come Black Friday there could be enough of a pricing difference to make the decision less of a coin flip.  Note that CNET may get a commission when you buy through any of the links on our site.  Ins and outs Dell G5 15Both the G5 15 5590 and Y545 have ports on the rear, including their power jacks.  Sarah Tew/CNET There are a lot of people who don’t care about what a laptop looks like, they just want the most powerful computer they can get for the money. I’m not one of them, and although the Legion Y545 looks fine in general, I prefer the Dell G5 15’s design. What I appreciate about both of them, though, is that they have ports and power on the back.  These are thinner and lighter than mainstream gaming laptops from a few years ago, which makes them more portable. But, according to feedback from PC makers, these laptops spend a lot of time on a desk, and I would expect most of that time they’re hooked up to Ethernet, a gaming keyboard and mouse, a monitor and speakers or a gaming headset. Having cords run from the back for these things just keeps things tidy.  The G5 and Y545 have similar port assortments, but only the Dell is available with Thunderbolt 3 and has a built-in SD card reader. Similarly, Dell will let you upgrade the keyboard from a single-color backlight to a four-zone RGB backlit keyboard and swap out its standard palm rest for one with a built-in fingerprint reader.  01-lenovo-legion-y545Both Dell and Lenovo offer 144Hz displays.  Sarah Tew/CNET Configuration choices The G5 15 and Y545 start off with essentially the same configurations: Intel Core i5-9300HNvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB 8GB of 2,666MHz memory128GB or 256GB PCIe-NVMe + 1TB HDD15.6-inch full-HD IPS matte display (60Hz)For the most part, this is the configuration you can expect from other PC makers for around $900, too. The processor can be upgraded to a six-core i7-9750H and you can bump up the graphics to GTX 1660 Ti or an RTX 2060 (basically the 1660 Ti with ray tracing). The base displays are good if not superbright, but if you upgrade the graphics, you can also switch to a 144Hz display.  We reviewed the base Dell G5 15 5590 with the GTX 1650 that gets you better frame rates than the older GTX 1050 Ti but just below the GTX 1060’s performance, which can be found in older gaming laptops around $1,000. The GPU is fine for right now, but doesn’t buy you much headroom for the future.  If you can afford to spend $1,000 to $1,200, go with the 1660 Ti used in the Lenovo Legion Y545 we reviewed, as it has noticeably better performance. It also had twice the RAM and the Core i7, so the Lenovo was faster all the way around. You can see how the two configurations compare in the benchmark tables below.  Dell G5 15 Sarah Tew/CNET At this level of gaming laptop you’re paying mainly for the components rather than extra features. Based on current pricing, you’ll get a better deal on the Lenovo Legion Y545. However, the build quality of the Dell G5 15 5590 seems better and the design looks a little less like a gaming laptop, if that matters to you. Also, Dell offers a few more extras like an SD card reader, Thunderbolt 3 and options to add an RGB LED keyboard and fingerprint reader.  See the Legion Y545 from LenovoSee the G5 15 5590 from Dell 48.7 844 1,182 See it Far Cry 5 gaming test (fps) Lenovo Legion Y730last_img read more

first_imgMore than a hundred people attended Tuesday’s Assembly meeting. Photo: KSKA.The ride-share service Uber won an important battle in last-night’s Anchorage Assembly meeting, and will be allowed to keep operating in the city as they work out a short-term memorandum of understanding with the municipality.Uber is a smart-phone app that lets users arrange for a private driver to chauffeur them around for a set price. Sounds like a cab, right? Well, that’s where it gets complicated.The Assembly voted 8 to 3 to begin developing an MOU with the company. That will set up the terms the company is allowed to operate on in the municipality. In the mean-time, they can keep doing what they are already doing, which is providing the service while not charging passengers a fee. They still pay a small fleet of drivers, but as long as they do not charge riders then they are not violating any of the city’s laws, or the cease-and-desist letters issued by the municipality since they first started operating in September.During two hours of public testimony at last night’s meeting, the majority of those who spoke were drivers and company owners who say Uber is expanding their business but not playing by the same strict rules that regulate cabs under Title 11 of the Municipal Code.Sussie Smith runs a taxi business and says Uber has found a way around the insurance requirements and equipment standards she and her drivers are required to follow.“These drivers are operating in a commercial manner, operating daily around our city, and risking the public safety for our citizens,” Smith said after the Assembly meeting.On the other side of the issue are advocates like Sam Moore, who says the city should not, and cannot stop innovative business models from appearing, especially when the current model is far from perfect.“I can’t see well-enough to drive, I take taxis, buses, and now Uber,” Moore explained. “It’s a transportation option that should be available to all users in the market place.”Assembly member Amy Demboski challenged many of the public comments made, saying this ordinance does not settle anything, it sets up a mechanism for figuring out how the municipality will regulate Uber, if it allows it at all.“This is not throwing out the rules of Title 11, no matter how you cut it,” said Demboski, who voted in favor of the measure. “This is saying that Uber’s going to have to play by the rules. This is just an opportunity to start the discussion.”There’s no set time table for when the city attorney will have a memorandum of understanding ready for the Assembly.last_img read more

first_imgChiranjeevi in Sye Raa Narasimha ReddyTwitterMegastar Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has reportedly brought a new headache for producer Ram Charan, as more than 100 successors of Narasimha Reddy are asking for money from him.It is known that Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a historical war drama film, based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from Rayalaseema. According to reports, the freedom fighter had three wives back in 1947 and his family has grown to 100 members over generations. All of them are claiming to be his successors and they are said to be demanding money from the makers of the film.Ram Charan bankrolled Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy under his banner Konidela Production Company. The members of Narasimha Reddy’ family staged a sit-in at his office in Jubilee Hills. They alleged that the producer had promised to pay compensation, but failed to honour it. They also claimed that he had executed an agreement with them, promising to pay the compensation by June 30. Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa stillTwitterRam Charan is ready to help them financially, but he was in dilemma over the true claimants. “The problem is that there are about 100 people who are claiming to be the successors. They are also fighting internally and the matter is in court. We can listen to them, but can’t decide anything yet,” Deccan Chronicle quoted a source close to the producer as saying.While an entire village claims to be the freedom fighter’s successors, it is rumoured that Narasimha Reddy was adopted by someone else. “A group of five or six people asking for money might trigger utter chaos with the rest too, so Ram Charan is thinking about it,” added the source.Ever since it went on floors, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy starring Chiranjeevi has been facing one problem or the other. Ram Charan has managed to overcome all of them and completed its shooting. When he is getting its post-production works done fast to release it in October, the movie has landed in another problem, which seems to be a little complicated. It should be seen how he would resolve this issue.#UyyalawadaNarasimhareddy family protests infront of #RamCharan’s office for not paying them despite using their story. #MegaStarChiranjeevi #Syeraa #SyeRaaNarasimaReddy— OverSeasRights.Com (@Overseasrights) June 30, 2019last_img read more

first_img-Ruling Bangladesh Awami League’s (AL) student wing Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) on Wednesday asked its activists to find Islami Chhatra Shibir activists and thus to “resist” them.Shibir is the student organisation of Islam-based political party – Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami, a key ally of main opposition party Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP).“No more defensive action, we will henceforth have to go for taking a role of attacking strikers. Only slogans, rallies, and processions are not enough. BCL activists should take ‘attacking measures’ in order to resist Shibir,” BCL president Saifur Rahman told a rally at Dhaka University’s TSC Wednesday evening.“Find out where there are Shibir activists and thus resist them there,” the BCL president asked his party activists.Accusing Shibir of assaulting two BCL activists in Sylhet on Tuesday, the BCL president announced to launch “counter-attack on Shibir men from now on”.Referring to the two incidents in Rajshahi University and Lakshmipur district where BCL activists beat up several Shibir men, the BCL president said the “resistance against Shibir” has begun.“Jamaat and Shibir must be contained with a firm fist. Jamaat and Shibir men will be allowed to stay nowhere in the country, from district to union. They will have to be contained after searching each of them and they will have to be ousted from the country,” said the ruling party’s student wing chief.BCL secretary SM Zakir Hossain threatened that they would give a befitting reply to Jamaat and Shibir if attackers are not arrested in 24 hours.“BCL leaders and workers know well how to give the reply,” he added.Meanwhile, Islami Chhatra Shibir president Yeasin Arafat and secretary general Mobarak Hossain claimed in a statement published on the organisation’s website that Shibir activists were in no way involved in any attacks on BCL activists.Shibir also claimed that the attack on BCL activists in Sylhet was resulted from intra-party conflicts of the BCL itself.Read more:BCL men beat up 11 ‘Shibir men’ at RUlast_img read more

first_imgAssociated PressJUBA, South Sudan (AP) – To fight a backlog of court cases in this poor and rural country, South Sudan plans to introduce mobile courts, a response to criticism that that some defendants have languished in prison for five years without trial.Chief Justice Chan Reech, who announced the new initiative this week, said that police often fail to fully investigate reported crimes, making it impossible to bring prisoners before a judge. Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Comments   Share   Top Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 “In some places that I have visited, I found people languishing in the prison for something like three years without a formal charge,” Reech said Tuesday.In a June, Human Rights Watch issued a report that found that prisoners in South Sudan were often detained arbitrarily, often not charged with crimes and frequently not provided with lawyers for their defense. The report said some prisoners were detained for up to five years without trial.Reech said the problem was due to a lack of judges and judicial infrastructure. South Sudan _ the world’s newest country _ has only 120 judges to serve a population of more than 8 million, said Reech, the country’s first chief justice.“If you go to the countryside, there are no formal courts. There are no buildings like this,” he said from a hotel in the capital city. “And I said, `If we wait for these courts to be built it will take generations.’”South Sudan peacefully broke away from Sudan last year, the culmination of a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of war.
