Top of offeror companies’ gripes is the introduction of a mandatory four-week deadline for a deal to be confirmed after initial interest is declared.At the moment, the Panel assesses deals individually and issues a so-called put-up-or-shut-up deadline accordingly. In 2010 the Takeover Panel issued eight put-up-or-shut-up notifications. Of those deals only two went ahead – the Kraft takeover of Cadbury and Babcock’s acquisition of VT Group. “Put-up-or-shut-up can kill deals,” said David Pudge of law firm Clifford Chance. “Bidders may have to change their tactics and be better prepared before takeover talks are announced.”The changes are particularly worrying for private equity firms, which often fund buyouts through leveraged financings with lengthy due diligence requirements.Adding to concerns are plans for break fees and other inducements to be banned, leaving bidders unable to recoup cash if a target leaves talks. Also on the Panel’s reform list are rules on fee transparency, which could see parties from financial advisers to PR firms forced to disclose their expected fees from a transaction. Though the change was expected, advisers are still worried that increased speculation on fees will detract attention from the value of a potential bid to the offeree. “These changes hit the wrong target and may in fact damage the interests of target company shareholders,” said a spokesman for the British Venture Capital Association.Recognising employees’ interests is also in the Panel’s sights, with proposals to discipline companies that renege on employment promises made during negotiations.Takeovers that could have been affectedKraft Foods/Cadbury, Jan 2010Despite saying it would stay open, after acquiring Cadbury, Kraft decided to close its Somerbury factory. Under new rules bidders can be disciplined if they don’t fulfil statements made during a bid. Britannia/Co-opFirst touted in October 2008, the merger between Britannia Building Society and Co-operative Financial Services wasn’t confirmed until January 2009 ?– well over the new mandatory four-week limit.KNOC/Dana Petroleum, Sep 2010An approach was first rumoured in early July, but no takeover was confirmed until 24 September. International firms are used to deadlines and inducements that won’t be allowed in the new UK regime. whatsapp More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapplast_img read more

Springboks snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as Wallabies win in Perth

first_imgSunday Sep 7, 2014 Springboks snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as Wallabies win in Perth The Springboks suffered a heartbreaking defeat in Perth as a dubious yellow card to Test centurion Bryan Habana turned the match on it’s head, as the Wallabies fought back brilliantly to score late in the game and win 24-23 in the rain. The Wallabies struck first through magic man Israel Folau, who crossed with just a minute on the clock for a dream start. The Boks bounced back though, scoring an excellent try through Cornal Hendricks after some lovely hands from star fullback Willie Le Roux.The Springboks shot out to a 23-14 lead in the second half but as the Wallabies attacked, Habana’s desperation tackle was deemed high by Irish referee George Clancy. While reaching for the pocket he was told by the assistant ref to take another look, which he did, but still chose to card Habana.Australia threw everything into attack and while some impressive defence held them out, a poor Morne Steyn error – not finding touch from a turnover penalty – gave them another crack with time almost up. Some brilliance from Kurtley Beale and Folau allowed Horne to finish well in the corner.Waratah Foley stepped up and converted, giving them a 24-23 victory. Steyn’s poor few minutes were capped off by him failing to kick the ball 10m from the restart, handing possession back to the home side, who hung on and celebrated a famous come from behind win.It was the first Springbok in 11 months, but coach Heyneke Meyer chose not to comment on the Habana incident, or the puzzling high tackle penalty on Duane Vermeulen in the first half.“What happened is done and it can’t be changed. We’re very disappointed with the defeat because we played very well. I thought we controlled the second half very well, playing against the wind, and the yellow card disrupted our plans on how we wanted to use the bench. “No excuses though, it’s a defeat and it really hurts. We now need to set our sights on our next match, which is our third away from home on the trot, and rectify matters against New Zealand in Wellington. It will take a monumental effort and we’ve got a lot of respect for New Zealand, but I believe we can beat them there,” he added ahead of next weekend’s match. Your thoughts on the match?

Charities missing out on £1.4 billion through low profile of payroll giving, says CAF

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The figure of £1.4 billion extra income is CAF’s estimate of what would be donated if the 42% of people questioned who said they’d be likely to give by payroll giving if their employer offered it were actually to do so.Efforts are underway to promote payroll giving. A radio advertising campaign is being piloted in Wales and Mancester by the Institute of Fundraising, and NSPCC, Oxfam and Cancer Research UK are all running TV advertising campaigns, funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland. Research in June 2005 by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and the Royal Bank of Scotland into public perceptions of payroll giving has found that the method of giving is still far from popular.Although employee donations have grown from £82 million in 2003/04 to £83 million in 2004/05, this still represents gifts by only 2% of taxpayers. These figures exclude matched funding from employers, but even adding in this figure for this year the total rises only to £95 million.Income is low, but so too is public awareness of payroll giving. The survey found only half of the working population was aware of the scheme.

Racism, worker rights and the FedEx shooting

first_imgThe mass shooting April 15 at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis took the lives of eight workers and injured seven more. Half of those slain were members of the Sikh community, and one was a young African American woman. The murderer, 19-year-old Brandon Hole, killed himself after the shootings took place.There have been many hate crimes against Sikhs, especially following the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center. Haters ignorantly linked the turbans worn by Sikh men with Osama Bin-Laden. In 2012 six people were killed and four injured in an attack on a Sikh house of worship — a gurdwara — in Oak Creek, Wis.Immediately following the Indianapolis massacre, the Sikh Coalition explained in a statement: “It was no accident that the shooter targeted this particular FedEx facility where he had worked and knew was overwhelmingly staffed by Sikhs. This was not a crime of convenience or a spur of the moment attack; it was one of methodical planning and selection which echoes the targeting of Asian American spa parlors in Atlanta exactly one month ago. The people that were shot and killed were not random targets.” (sikhcoalition.org)Historically and now, white supremacists from the Klan to the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys have never had trouble obtaining the tools they use to terrorize the Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Arab, Muslim, Jewish, LGBTQ2S+ and other communities. They can get weapons, explosives, lumber and fuel for cross-burnings, propaganda leaflets, media access, rally permits, police protection — and in this era, internet and social access.Young white men with white-supremacist views — the profile of many mass shooters — have no trouble gaining access to firearms, including semiautomatic weapons. We are all told the fascists have a First Amendment right to spread hatred. But racist ideology — recklessly fomented during the Trump administration — fuels racist violence.Like Amazon workers, FedEx workers need a unionThe white supremacy driving so many mass shootings is the number one tool that capitalists use to keep the working class divided — and unorganized. Package handlers and drivers at FedEx earn on the average $14-15 an hour; drivers at UPS make about $10 an hour more. The difference? FedEx, number 70 on the Fortune 500 list of wealthiest companies, is nonunion. Lower wages have helped FedEx earn billions in profits annually, most recently almost $900 million in the quarter ending Feb. 28.Safety of the workers who make them rich is not a priority for FedEx bosses. Last November, Leanell “Troy” McClenton filed a wrongful death lawsuit against FedEx over the 2019 death of his son, Detate Young, who was killed on the job when an unlocked door holding piles of packages swung open. Young, who was in the way, was crushed.Workers at the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, where Young worked, complain about the speed of work and the dangerous conditions. Thousands of the company’s 500,000 workers worldwide have tested positive for COVID.At the Indianapolis facility, workers are required to lock off their phones while on the job. This meant they could not call for help after their co-workers were shot. Their relatives, frantically calling to find out if they were among the victims, could not reach them. This is the 21st century high-tech version of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist tragedy in New York City and the Imperial Foods chicken processing plant fire 80 years later in Hamlet, N.C., fires which killed 146 and 25 workers respectively. In both cases the workers were locked in by the bosses. Without a union, the workers did not have a voice to demand safe working conditions.Union YES! White supremacy NO!

These are all people who exemplify the traits of a good archivist: they are methodical, persistent, capable of illuminating leaps of intuition, and above all, they are nosy.“This year’s awardee exhibits the exact qualities of the previous years, with one notable exception…Lizzie Steidel is 60 years younger than most of them! This Westridge student has faithfully worked in the archives on her Saturdays for more than a year, helping with the research for two exhibitions, wedding dresses and the Civil War. She’s using archival images to prepare a Powerpoint presentation on the history of Pasadena. In addition, Lizzie has organized the Manuscripts Collection and prepared a finding aid to it. This young lady is destined to be the next Librarian of Congress … or President of the Huntington Library… or maybe even the Executive Director of PMH! We are privileged to work with her here.”In 2012, approximately 300 volunteers gave over 10,000 hours of service to Pasadena Museum of History, a contribution valued at nearly $250,000.

When the petition was first called out, there was no appearance. Then the bench passed over the matter. Even when the matter was called again at the end of the board, there was no appearance. Then the bench proceeded to dismiss the petition.The special leave petition filed by Saritha S Nair challenged the judgment passed by the High Court of Kerala on October 31 last year to reject her election petition.The High Court had held that the petition was not filed and verified in the proper format as mandated under Section 83 of the Representation of People Act.”…petitioner has not filed the election petition in accordance with the mandatory requirements of law and is filed in a casual manner without even attesting many of the Annexures, and without properly marking the same”, the HC observed.Further, the HC noted that Saritha S Nair was convicted in two criminal cases for cheating and was therefore disqualified from contesting elections as per Section 8(3) of the RP Act. Hence, the High Court held that her election petition was not maintainable. In fact, her nominations to contest from Ernakulam and Wayanad constituencies were rejected by the Returning Officers on this ground. Though Saritha Nair pointed out that her nomination to contest in Amethi(UP) against Gandhi was accepted by the Returning Officer there, the High Court did not accept this argument holding that she was disqualified from contesting elections.”..the election petitions are dismissed on the ground of incurable defects pointed out above in terms of Sec.86(1) of Act, 1951, and that the petitioner was disqualified from contesting the election in view of the inhibitions contained under Sec.8(3) of Act, 1951, read with Article 102(1)(e) of the Constitution of India”, a bench of Justice Shaji P Chaly of the High Court observed.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
