Supreme Courts well ruling credit negative for energy firms says Moodys

12 Oct 2019

CALGARY — A credit rating agency says high court support for the Alberta Energy Regulator’s ability to force a bankruptcy trustee to pay out well-abandonment obligations before paying back creditors is credit negative for energy companies.Moody’s Investor Services says the Supreme Court of Canada ruling Thursday creates a “super priority position” for payment of such liabilities over repaying other creditors.It says the decision potentially reduces how much a lender could recover in the event of an insolvency and, therefore, how much it will be willing to lend to companies.That could potentially lead to a reduction in how much money oil and gas companies will be able to call upon to fund their exploration and development programs.The high court’s 5-2 ruling came with a recommendation from Chief Justice Richard Wagner for Parliament to clarify the confusion between the federal bankruptcy law and the regulations provinces rely on to protect the environment.Moody’s says the ruling is also credit negative for banks and other creditors but adds it’s unclear how it will affect other industries and provinces going forward.“The ruling favoured the Alberta energy regulator, but the Supreme Court’s statement that Alberta’s regulations must be followed in bankruptcy could mean that bankruptcy trustees in other provinces would have to follow similar regulations, with unclear effects on how environmental regulations would affect recoveries for creditors elsewhere,” the agency said in a report.The Canadian Press read more

Dayan assumes duties in Russia promises to strengthen ties

08 Oct 2019

Ambassador Jayatilleka highlighted that, for decades, since early 1950ies the USSR, then Russia provided important economic, industrial, technological and later, defence and security support to Sri Lanka, which was crucial for the country’s progress and economic development, as well as in defeating one of the world’s most developed terrorist organizations, putting an end to the civil conflict which affected the country for 30 years. On the first working day in Moscow, Dr. Jayatilleka will witness the signing of two important Sri Lanka-Russia agreements in defence sphere; in this context, the Ambassador noted the excellent rapport between Sri Lanka Ministry of Defence representatives with their Russian counterparts.Dr. Jayatilleka visited Russia several times, from 1960ies to 1985 when he participated in Sri Lankan delegation to the International Youth Festival in Moscow. Now, Dr. Jayatilleka as the new Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Russia, he is honoured to succeed to a pleiade of Sri Lankan Ambassadors of the past, such as Prof. Gunapala Malalasekara, T.B. Subasinghe, J. Kotalawala, N. Kanakaratne and others who, made a very important personal contribution to the progress of Sri Lanka-Russia bilateral relations.The key political idea that the new Head of Sri Lanka’s Mission in Russia would like to project at the start of his duties is the following: “This is in the national interests of Sri Lanka, as a State and as a country, to strengthen, deepen and expand its relations with Russian with a view to the great strengths Russia has, which would be best to the further development of Sri Lanka”. (Colombo Gazette) He said that one of Sri Lanka’s major infrastructural projects of the present time, the Moragahakanda irrigation project which will supply water to a large part of the country’s rural areas, including the North- this project, recently completed and inaugurated by President Maithripala Sirisena, had its roots in the technological cooperation with Russia. The newly appointed Ambassador of Sri Lanka to the Russian Federation, Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka assumed duties at the Mission, the Sri Lankan Embassy in Russia said.Addressing the staff of the Embassy upon assumption of duties, Ambassador Jayatilleka spoke on the decades – old ties between Sri Lanka and Russia outlining the main political focus of his further work in Russia as the Ambassador of Sri Lanka and outlining the deep importance and continuous development of Sri Lanka’s bilateral relations with the Russian Federation. Russia has been supporting Sri Lanka in multilateral fora, including in UN as well as in other International Organizations – as the Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to UN Organizations in Geneva, and Dr. Jayatilleka recollected his fruitful exchanges with Valery Loschinin, the then Russian Ambassador for Disarmament and former Deputy Foreign Minister.Dr. Jayatilleka considers it important to start his Ambassadorial duties in Russia now as Sri Lanka’s relations with Russia received a new momentum in a number of fields, as a result of the Official Visit of President Maithripala Sirisena which strengthened the mutual communication between the Sri Lankan Leader with the President of the Russian Federation. read more

iOS 6 jailbreak finally available works on iPhone 5 and iPad Mini

21 Sep 2019

first_imgAround five months after the release of the iPhone 5, and five months of adhering to Apple’s OS limitations, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.x is finally here, and you can now proceed to do whatever you want on your iOS 6 device should you have the gall  to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad.The jailbreak, known as evasi0n, comes from hacker group evad3rs, and is available for the big three of Windows, Mac, and Linux. The jailbreak is pretty versatile, working on Windows XP and up, OS X 10.5 and up, and x86 and x86_64 Linux. It’s worth reiterating that the jailbreak works for any device capable of iOS 6 — not just Apple’s newest devices, the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini.Evad3rs claims the jailbreak takes around five minutes, and notes that you should disable any lock passcode on the device before applying the crack, as it can cause issues. The group also notes that any iOS or iTunes-related task should be avoided until after the crack’s completion. Unlike most sensitive updates, if the evasi0n jailbreak hangs or freezes at any point in the installation, you are safe to simply reboot the device and start over.Before you jailbreak — or really, alter anything in a way that the manufacturer didn’t intend — remember to back up everything on your device. Sync it to iTunes, dump it all on iCloud, then begin the process. The jailbreak reaches fairly far back into the Apple lifecycle, working on the iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 5, the iPad 2, 3, 4, and Mini, as well as the 4th and 5th generation iPod Touch.If you’re interested, the jailbreak and its many mirrors can be found here, but remember to be careful — an iPhone that adheres to Apple’s limitations is better than a very expensive brick that doesn’t do anything.last_img read more

H5N6 virus in Greece distinct from Asian strain

21 Sep 2019

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram An early look into the highly pathogenic H5N6 strain (avian flu) recently discovered in Greece has indicated that it’s different from the one in Asia that has been triggering a series of outbreaks in poultry.The case reported in Greece last week was the first H5N6 outbreak detected outside Asia, and involved backyard poultry in the country’s northwest. Though the outbreak began on 6 February, it was confirmed by a virologist this week that the virus had mistakenly been reported as H5N8 on 16 February.According to Ian Brown, MIBiol, PhD, head of virology at the international reference lab at the Animal and Plant Health Agency in Weybridge, a very preliminary analysis based on limited genetic sequences suggests the H5N6 strain is a result of further reassortment involving highly pathogenic H5N8 and endemic Eurasian viruses.Meanwhile France continues to struggle, with 10 more highly pathogenic H5N8 outbreaks reported, one involving backyard birds and nine involving wild birds. Other reports in Europe have been made in the Czech Republic and Poland.Recently Nepal also reported a highly pathogenic H5N1 outbreak, its first since 2014, followed by a second with backyard birds with both cases found in the Gandaki zone.Further details about the strain in Greece are expected in due course.last_img read more

Revenues Up for Merediths Magazine Group

14 Sep 2019

first_imgThe group’s year-over-year growth numbers are skewed with the mid-FY2012 acquisitions of EveryDay with Rachel Ray, FamilyFun and Allrecipes.com however, Meredith notes in the report.As such, the National Media Group’s aggregate advertising revenues were up 5 percent to $515 million, but declined 6 percent on a comparable basis that accounts for the previously-held titles only. That comparable ad income—which also declined 3 percent in FY2012 following the acquisitions—continues a trend of dwindling ad revenues that runs back several years. Similarly, digital advertising grew 62 percent overall and 12 percent on a comparable basis.Including both the National and Local Media Groups, digital advertising made up 11 percent of Meredith’s total advertising revenue in FY2013. The company’s digital operations may be for a shakeup however. Liz Schimel, Meredith’s chief digital officer, left the company to head Condé Nast International’s China business last week.

first_imgThe group’s year-over-year growth numbers are skewed with the mid-FY2012 acquisitions of EveryDay with Rachel Ray, FamilyFun and Allrecipes.com however, Meredith notes in the report.As such, the National Media Group’s aggregate advertising revenues were up 5 percent to $515 million, but declined 6 percent on a comparable basis that accounts for the previously-held titles only. That comparable ad income—which also declined 3 percent in FY2012 following the acquisitions—continues a trend of dwindling ad revenues that runs back several years. Similarly, digital advertising grew 62 percent overall and 12 percent on a comparable basis.Including both the National and Local Media Groups, digital advertising made up 11 percent of Meredith’s total advertising revenue in FY2013. The company’s digital operations may be for a shakeup however. Liz Schimel, Meredith’s chief digital officer, left the company to head Condé Nast International’s China business last week.

A strange experience on Mt Ampato

19 Aug 2019

first_imgFrom the print editionEarly on my 80th birthday, I found myself struggling to reach 3,350 meters on Mount Ampato in southern Peru. This is not so impressive as it is meant to sound; up to the snow line, Ampato is no more than a grade-three scramble, and I had no intention of going for the top. Even so, I was puffing like a grampus and wondering if I could manage the next 914 meters. In fact, the only reason I was there at all was that my climbing club had gotten wind of a happening at a stone hut overlooking the glacier lake just short of the snow line, and had asked me to investigate. The climbing bug is incurable, so up I went. Jack O’Brien As I lay getting my breath, a procession of odd-looking climbers passed, without so much as a greeting. From their homespun climbing gear, but more from the acrid stench of masticated coca leaf that floated after them, I judged them to be from the Altiplano, where the pitiful remnants of the once-proud Inca eked out a precarious existence. This was interesting, as Altiplano people don’t go climbing for fun. As soon as the coca fumes had gone, I took off after them.I pretty soon lost sight of the group, and it wasn’t until midday that I reached the hut, where an astonishing sight met my eyes.Overlooking the lake was a natural amphitheater, crowded with several hundred people dressed like the silent climbers who had passed me. On the floor of this primitive theater was a stone slab, and standing over it a tall figure in brilliant vestments brandishing what looked like a stone knife. On the slab, held spread-eagled by four acolytes, was a mountain goat, and as I watched the tall guy plunged his knife just below the goat’s rib cage and sawed away inside. Then, reaching inside with his other hand he tugged out the still-beating heart and held it above his head.There is nothing unusual about sacrificing a goat – it is done every day in the Middle East – though tearing out the beating heart was more an Aztec than an Inca custom. So ignoring protests from the crowd surrounding the slab, I pushed forward to get a better look and promptly stumbled over the naked body of a young girl lying on the rock floor. She was trussed like a chicken, and in the brief glimpse allowed me, I guessed she was drugged to the eyebrows. Horrified, I recalled in a flash that this was the mountain where several years ago the mutilated bodies of four young girls had been exposed by the retreating glacier, perfectly preserved and obviously offered up for sacrifice. Then I was buried under an avalanche of furious acolytes, trussed up like the girl, and tossed into the stone hut.It took me a whole day to get free of my bonds, and by that time no evidence remained of the barbaric ceremony. But I shall never get out of my mind the great shout I heard as I hit the floor of the hut, and will never know whether it signified divine approval of the goat heart or the sacrifice of the young girl.
