Anglo to restructure debts KCS-content Share Tuesday 21 December 2010 8:24 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp Bondholders at Anglo Irish Bank have voted to support a restructuring of the bank’s debts. More than 90 per cent of holders of two sets of outstanding bonds have agreed to take part in the restructuring in exchange for an offer of 20 per cent of the face value of their claims. The exchange, which offers less than market value for the bonds, is being seen as a test case for bank debt restructurings.

to go further LesothoAfrica RSF_en News LesothoAfrica News Organisation Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent News April 6, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information News July 9, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Weekly’s survival threatened by state advertising boycott ordered by government Receive email alerts Follow the news on Lesotho October 24, 2008 Find out more Radio station back on the air after three-month suspension Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the survival of the privately-owned weekly Public Eye following an order from the government to all state and parastatal agencies at the start of June not to buy any more of its advertising space.“Allowing political and malicious considerations to determine where state advertisements and announcements are placed is outrageous and should be banned by the Lesothan government,” the organisation said. “Not only does it threaten the existence a free press in Lesotho but it is also a disguised form of censorship and an abuse of authority. The government does not own the agencies of the state and should not use them for its petty political ends.”Several state and parastatal advertisers told Public Eye editor Bethuel Thai at the start of June that they had received an order not to buy any more space in his newspaper. When Thai asked to see a copy of the order, they all referred him to government secretary Tlohang Sekhamane, who confirmed that the government had taken this decision but said no written order existed.Nonetheless, Public Eye did in the end obtain a copy of a message from the local government ministry’s human resources department to project and section chiefs saying: “I have been ordered to inform you that requests for advertising services to the newspaper Public Eye and radio Harvest FM must cease with immediate effect. I thank you for your usual cooperation.”Since then, no request for advertising has been made by the agencies involved. As a result, Thai was forced to tell his employees he was suspending payment of all salaries until further notice, as 85 per cent of the newspaper’s revenue comes from advertising. He has had no success with his attempts to contact senior government officials to request an explanation or propose a solution. Thai estimates that his newspaper will fold within six months if there is no change in the current situation.Founded by Thai in 1997 and originally in the form of a photocopied newsletter, Public Eye has developed into a respected and high-quality weekly employing 26 staffers and around 15 freelancers. It was one of the Kingdom of Lesotho’s few independent newspapers, and the most widely-read one.Harvest FM is often accused by the government of being the mouthpiece of the main opposition party, the All Basotho Convention. One of its leading journalists, Thabo Thakalekoala, is currently charged with “failure to report subversive activity” as a result of reading a letter on the air calling for the prime minister’s resignation which he said he got from members of the army.

(Credit: Gerd Altmann from Pixabay.) .S. Energy Corp. (NASDAQCM: USEG) (“U.S. Energy” or the “Company”) today announced that the Company (through a wholly-owned subsidiary) has entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (the “Transaction”) to acquire operated producing assets (the “Properties”) located in Liberty County, Texas in an all-stock transaction.Proved Developed Reserves estimated at approximately 242,300 barrels of oil.PV-10 estimated at $1.2 million at current strip pricing.680 net acres in Liberty County, Texas all held by production.Properties average a 100% working interest and 86% net revenue interest.Purchase price $250,000 in U.S. Energy restricted common stock.“We are very pleased to announce our most recent acquisition agreement, which represents U.S. Energy’s third acquisition of 2020 and shows the continued execution of our stated strategy of seeking to consolidate assets that represent mature, positive cash flowing properties,” said Ryan Smith, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Energy, who continued, “The Properties are being purchased at highly accretive levels by any transactional metric and at a meaningful discount to their estimated existing reserve value while adding long lived oil reserves and immediate free cash flow to the U.S. Energy portfolio. We believe the current challenges facing the industry will continue to produce compelling asset consolidation opportunities and U.S. Energy will remain focused on pursuing accretive transactions that we can successfully roll into our existing asset base while maintaining our low cost corporate structure and clean balance sheet.”As of October 1, 2020, the Properties had total estimated Proved Developed Reserves of approximately 242,300 barrels of oil, comprised entirely of Proved Developed Producing and Proved Developed Non-Producing reserves, and had a present value of estimated future net revenues before income taxes discounted at 10% (“PV10”) value of approximately $1.2 million.

The Transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2020, subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions. Source: Company Press Release
The UK’s university application system could be dramatically changed following a proposal for pupils to apply only after receiving their A-level results.The plan, revealed by the UCAS chief executive to university vice-chancellors, would see exams set at least a month earlier, in April and May, so results could be released in July. This system, which could be implemented as early as 2016, would enable pupils to apply for courses the following autumn, replacing the current system of conditional offers entirely.Arguments supporting change were strengthened by UCAS investigations finding only 45% of predicted grades, upon which many applications are currently based, have proven accurate. A Warwick University researcher explained this as the result of private schools over-predicting results as they “compete to get [students] into Oxbridge and other Russell group universities”. Contrarily, some state schools, particularly those which may be unused to pupils receiving top grades, have been unwilling under the present system to predict strong results.The proposal was welcomed by Jack Watson, JCR Secretary at Regent’s Park, who stated, “There are numerous candidates who are more than capable of achieving [the 3 A] entry requirement but fail to apply to Oxford because they lack the self-belief that they will achieve 3 A’s or don’t have teachers familiar with sending students to Oxbridge to drive them to do so.” However, Watson did caution that “a private school applicant is statistically more likely to have better A level grades than a comprehensive school applicant”, so access would only improve if there was no increased time-pressure forcing an over-reliance on grades.Jack Evans, JCR President at Corpus, more positively stated that post-qualification applications could “only strengthen the opportunities for those from poorer backgrounds applying to Oxford.” He confidently predicted that “if Oxford really feels as passionately about the interviewing process as they claim (…) the existing admissions arrangements will just be pushed back six months” rather than criteria being changed. An Oxford Admissions spokesperson gave this reassurance, stating that “at Oxford exam results are really only the minimum requirement rather than the determining factor.” The university currently looks at written work, admissions tests and interviews and there has been no suggestion that these would be sacrificed were there to be a change in application dates.One second-year student, who went to a state school in South London before applying to Oxford, expressed doubts as to the practicality of such time constraints, commenting, “Oxford’s application process rests upon the aptitude testing and interviewing process, without which the university would struggle to gain a true reflection of each candidate’s potential and course suitability. How such a process could ever feasibly continue within such a shortened time scale remains to be seen.”Hannah Cusworth, OUSU’s Vice-President for Access and Academic Affairs, also showed the importance of receiving these materials, stating, “Oxford is so oversubscribed for many subjects, and the majority of candidates have the top grades, so tutors will still need these other methods to distinguish between candidates.” Furthermore, Cusworth was sceptical as to whether post-qualification applications could actually greatly help traditionally underrepresented groups. She suggested that “studying at Oxford requires different skills to those needed to get A*s at school”, but “the number of students who get the grades to come to Oxford or Cambridge already corresponds relatively closely to the numbers who apply.”The Russell Group of Universities was also hesitant to fully back the proposal. A spokesperson stated that they remained unconvinced that the plan would not restrict ability to “make a fair and thorough assessment of applicants” and also warned that applicants would be given a reduced opportunity to decide where to apply. There are concerns that damage could be made to existing outreach schemes and that earlier exams could disadvantage all pupils.UCAS is currently conducting a review of the admissions process and is collecting feedback on its new proposal, the full details of which are expected to be published in a consultation document in October.

They came. They sat. They crawled.The winning athletes and their mothers posed with their prizes. Photos courtesy of the City of Ocean City.Ocean City hosted it’s annual Pamper Scamper this morning (August 8) on the beach at Sixth Street. It was sponsored by Bowfish Kids.For over four decades, the good-natured competition has challenged parents to leave their infant children in the center of a parachute spread out on the beach … and has challenged the infants to crawl back to the perimeter of the parachute and the welcoming arms of their parents.The event included numerous heats of eight infants divided into three age categories: 9 months old and younger, 9 months to 12 months, and 12 months to 15 months.It was just another fun day in America’s Greatest Family Resort.The Pamper Scamper is a prelude to Ocean City’s 108th annual Baby Parade, which takes place 5 p.m. Thursday (Aug. 10) on the Boardwalk between Sixth and 12th streets.
European Process Plant (EPP) has promoted Ged McBride to the role of area sales manager.McBride has been working as a service engineer for the business and has been involved in installing and commissioning equipment in craft, plant and supermarket in-store bakeries, as well as providing service and engineering support. “I am very much looking forward to the challenges my new role offers and working in partnership with bakers and food manufacturers in order to help them to make the right decisions when it comes to investing in new plant and equipment,” said McBride.“Because of my background I will probably be always pointing out that, however attractive the price a new piece of machinery appears to be, customers should always take step back and ask how it is going to be maintained and supported.”EPP director Steve Merritt believed McBride would be a major asset to the sales team. “His time spent as one of our service engineers has given him an unrivalled, detailed knowledge of our product range, from silos and mixers to bread and roll plant, ovens, packaging machinery and blast freezers,” he said.Earlier this month, EPP reacted to the BBC’s investigative programme Watchdog’s shaming of Asda over its unhygienic baskets.
Kiss has officially announced the first leg of their “End of the Road World Tour”, which they say will be their last ever. The band’s current lineup features original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons as well as Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. After a 45-year career, the band’s initial retirement announcement was made on an episode of NBC’s America’s Got Talent after performing their hit “Detroit Rock City” to open the show’s season finale.The first leg of Kiss’s “End of the Road World Tour” will span from January 31st through July 16th, 2019 across two continents, with stops in North America, the U.K., Europe, and Russia. The original announcement stated that their final shows will be part of a multi-year “End of the Road” world tour, so stay tuned for more announcements. Pre-sale tickets will open up tomorrow at 10 a.m. local time, with a general on-sale this Friday, November 2nd. Head to the band’s website for more information.Kiss expressed in a press statement:All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable.Don’t forget, though, that this is actually the second time that Kiss has called it quits. The band had their first “farewell tour” in 2000 and 2001. As Rolling Stone previously pointed out, bassist Gene Simmons said in 2000, “There just aren’t any more mountains to climb. We want to go out in style with the people that put us here, the fans.” While band members returned to the road a mere two years later under the Kiss moniker, that was the final tour that featured all four original members.In 2002, guitarist Paul Stanley said: “People change their minds, and in this case that goes along with being a living, thinking person. What one says one day with total commitment may at another time turn out not to be so. Am I doing this for the money or the fans? Both, and let’s not forget I’m doing this for me.”The four original members, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley, appeared together in 2014 for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, though they did not perform together.However, Stanley seems to think a real reunion is not out of the question. As Consequence of Sound reminds us, Stanley recently said, “This will be a celebration of KISS and not any individual lineup or any individual members. I wouldn’t rule anything out.”For more information on the upcoming “End of the Road World Tour”, head to Kiss’s official website.KISS 2019 Tour Dates:01/31 – Vancouver, BC @ Rogers Arena02/01 – Portland, OR @ Moda Center02/02 – Tacoma, WA @ Tacoma Dome02/04 – Spokane, WA @ Spokane Arena02/07 – San Diego, CA @ Viejas Arena02/08 – Fresno, CA @ Save Mart Arena02/09 – Sacramento, CA @ Golden 1 Center02/12 – Anaheim, CA @ Honda Center02/13 – Glendale, AZ @ Gila River Arena02/15 – Las Vegas, NV @ T-Mobile Arena02/16 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Forum02/19 – Corpus Christi, TX @ American Bank Center02/21 – Dallas, TX @ American Airlines Center02/22 – New Orleans, LA @ Smoothie King Center02/23 – Memphis, TN @ Fedex Forum02/26 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energy Arena02/27 – Kansas City, MO @ Sprint Center03/01 – Milwaukee, WI @ Fiserv Forum03/02 – Chicago, IL @ United Center03/04 – Minneapolis, MN @ Target Center03/06 – Sioux Falls, SD @ Denny Sanford Premier Center03/07 – Omaha, NE @ Centurylink Center03/09 – Grand Rapids, MI @ Van Andel Arena03/10 – Moline, IL @ Taxslayer Center03/12 – Louisville, KY @ KFC!
