Telenor could soon lose sway over Vimpelcom

first_img NORWAY’S Telenor faces losing its influence over Russian mobile operator Vimpelcom after fellow leading shareholder Altimo said it wants to scrap the company’s shareholder agreement to reflect the Russian telecom group’s recent blockbuster merger.Vimpelcom last week closed a $6bn (£3.7bn) cash-and-shares deal for 51.7 per cent of Orascom Telecom and 100 per cent of Italy’s Wind, giving their Egyptian owner Naguib Sawiris 30.6 per cent of voting shares in the united group.The 2009 agreement, thrashed out after years of courtroom and boardroom battles between Telenor and Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman’s Altimo, was designed to give Altimo and Telenor roughly equal say in Vimpelcom. One of the key elements of the agreement was a balanced boardroom, with three independent directors balancing Altimo and Telenor’s three directors a piece.

ITV and BBC agree four-year deal to show men’s, women’s and U20 championships in the UK Matches in the men’s Six Nations would be shared between ITV and BBC (AFP/Getty Images) Six Nations staying on free-to-air TVThe Six Nations is set to stay on free-to-air TV in the UK until at least 2025.It had been thought that the championship would go behind a paywall from next year. However, Six Nations Rugby has reached an agreement in principle for matches from the men’s, women’s and U20 championships to be shown on BBC and ITV from 2022 to 2025.The contract terms are still to be finalised but if things proceed as expected, ITV and BBC would continue to share the rights to men’s Six Nations, with ITV showing England, France, Ireland and Italy home matches and BBC broadcasting Scotland and Wales home matches.The one change from the deal that ended this year is French home games moving from BBC to ITV.The Women’s Six Nations would be broadcast exclusively on the BBC with the U20 championship also covered by the BBC.The Women’s Six Nations would be shown exclusively on BBC (Getty Images)Six Nations CEO Ben Morel said: “This is exciting news for fans and for our championships. Both BBC and ITV have been excellent partners in recent years playing an important role in sharing the incredible moments that the Six Nations always produces, and celebrating the special place our championships hold in the hearts of fans.“I’m particularly excited by the opportunity to grow the women’s game with an invested broadcast partner in the BBC, who is as committed as we are.“We’re looking forward to working with them both as we continue to raise the bar and bring rugby’s greatest championships to ever-growing numbers across the UK.” Barbara Slater, Director of BBC Sport, added: “For the millions of Six Nations fans across the UK, the championships remaining free-to-air is wonderful news.“BBC Sport has led the way in increasing the profile of women’s sports, so we are thrilled to now include the Women’s Six Nations as a permanent fixture on our broadcast calendar.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS ITV Director of Sport Niall Sloan said: “ITV is delighted to have reached this agreement, which extends free-to-air coverage of such an important tournament and will ensure it remains centre stage each spring.“With the addition of France home games to those of England, Ireland and Italy, we look forward to bringing ITV viewers a wealth of superb rugby from the Six Nations in the coming years.”Tournament organisers confirmed earlier this month that it was in joint contract discussions with Virgin Media Television and RTÉ over Irish coverage of the three championships, so the Six Nations is set to remain on free-to-air television in Ireland too.last_img read more

The Blackbird House is located on a small cul de sac lot three blocks from the main ski lift in downtown Aspen. The site offers spectacular 360-degree views.

Bessemer workers ‘fighting against the capitalist ransom of their happiness and health’

first_imgThe following remarks were given at a March 20 Harlem, N.Y., rally in solidarity with Amazon workers who are organizing a union in Bessemer, Ala.  My name is Clarissa Hernandez and I’m with the Workers Assembly Against Racism –  WAAR!Everyone should know that we owe most major progress we have made in this country to Black revolutionaries.Clarissa Hernandez speaks on March 20. Credit:  WW PHOTO:  Toni ArensteinThis continues to be true today, as we can see in Bessemer, Alabama, in one of the largest Amazon warehouses in the U.S., which is primarily staffed by Black workers [a large percentage of them women].The United States went ahead and declared March to be Women’s History Month back in 1987 and here we see women making history! This union is making history.Amazon’s monolith is what happens under unchecked capitalism! Capitalism and Amazon want us to believe $15 an hour is a fair wage to be on your feet ten hours straight, to be at risk of termination if you need to use the bathroom, to work in an unclean facility during a global pandemic. You go home after 10-11 hours and every part of you aches. For $15 an hour.Yes $15 an hour is too low, but I can’t imagine a wage high enough to justify the abuse warehouse workers face. This abuse happens in warehouses and distribution centers all over the country because capitalism sees us as the capital and this mode of oppression is happy to sacrifice people for the sake of upholding itself.These women workers in Bessemer, Alabama, are fighting against the capitalist ransom of their happiness and health and paving the way for other warehouse workers to fight back against this injustice because we all deserve to be happy and healthy.Amazon would rather pay a union-busting law firm $10,000 a day than pay workers what they deserve. Isn’t it sick? They have the money, they’re just choosing to spend it on themselves and their bourgeois interests.Humans are not capital, we’re not — we are so much more than our labor contributions. Under this sick capitalist system, however, we can use our labor to make demands.We can take note of the work the women in Bessemer are doing. You don’t spend $10,000 a day unless you’re terrified — and trust me, Bezos, CEOs, the gatekeepers of wealth and security should be terrified because this labor movement is so powerful and this is only the beginning.

County Flood Control District, providing flood protection for Pasadena, South Pasadena and Los Angeles.A large amount of sediment has not been removed from Devil’s Gate since 1994, when workers hauled out 160,000 cubic yards.

State has also been directed to ensure that no nurses, paramedical staff or ASHA workers are deprived of their salaries. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna said “It must be clarified whether the State has any policy to provide armed police constables for protection of all the health workers. The State will also have to place on record what steps it proposes to take to prevent such incidents. The reason is that the safety of the doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, ASHA workers, etc. is of paramount importance in the battle against Covid-19. The State must come out with the policy which applies across the State for protecting this class of citizens who are on the forefront in the battle against Covid-19.” The direction was given during the hearing of the petition filed by Dr Rajeev Ramesh Gothe which highlights the need for safety of health workers. The court was informed about the incident which occurred in the night on April 19, at Padarayanapura in Bengaluru. It is reported that the persons who were sought to be quarantined attacked the health workers, including the doctors as well as the Police. To which the bench directed the state government to place on record the action taken against the wrong doers. Also, place on record a policy decision taken regarding providing adequate protection to the doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, ASHA workers, etc.” As regards to grievances made about non-availability of mask and PPE kits, to grass root level health workers by the counsel appearing for Karnataka State Legal Services Authority (KSLSA). The bench said “The State Government has to respond on the question whether the PPE Kits can be made available at a cost to private hospitals and to private clinics. Whether PPE kits have reached the doctors and the nursing staff across the state and whether equipment like masks and hand-gloves are made available across the state to health care facilities, such as Primary Health Centers (PHCs) and other facilities at grass-roots level.” The response has to be filed on the next date of hearing April 28. Advocate S Basvaraj who has filed an intervention application pointed out that on Government E-Marketplace (GEM) Portal provided by the Central Government, private doctors and private health workers cannot register themselves for procurement of PPE kits and other equipment. To which the Additional Solicitor General, appearing for Union Government said that the Central Government has recently distributed 2,83,910 PPE Kits and about 20 lakhs N-95 Masks to various States. However, he sought time to seek instruction on whether private health workers and doctors can register on the portal. The bench agreed to the request and directed the Union and State government to respond whether the ‘GEM Portal’ can be thrown open to private health care workers to buy PPE Kits and other equipment.Click Here To Download Order     [Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Beatles tribute comes to town

first_img “As people enter the theater, we will have a song table set up and everyone will be invited to request a song and give the reason for that request. Those requests and reasons will make up much of the plot of the evening. It’s an interactive show, and it’s all right to sing and dance in the aisles.”However, Jinright said people should not come expecting to see “the Beatles.” “The band members don’t dress like the Beatles or talk with fake English accents,” he said. “But they do share stories about the songs and about important ‘Beatle” moments that have touched their lives.”The Beatles’ were the biggest band of the 1960s and are still one of the top selling bands of the current decade.The four professional musicians who comprise “Yesterday and Today” are veterans of many other tribute acts including the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Monkees, the Beach Boys and the Kinks. However, it was the Beatles who originally inspired each of them to make music their careers.
