The firm hoped to harvest bauxite from the area to save money on transport. Environment minister Jairam Ramesh said the decision did not amount to blacklisting Vedanta, signalling that the firm could seek to mine elsewhere.“There has been serious violations of environment protection acts,” Ramesh said while rejecting Vedanta’s mining plans that could destroy heavily forested hills sacred to local tribal groups.London-listed shares in Vedanta closed down 7.6 per cent at £18.82 yesterday. “Vedanta remains committed to working with the local communities to ensure sustainable development in this region,” the company said in a statement.It added that the government of Orissa is actively considering other sources of bauxite for the firm’s alumini refinery. whatsapp Share Tuesday 24 August 2010 7:26 pm whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

iShares says some ETF providers are not transparent enough about risks

first_img whatsapp THE world’s biggest provider of exchange-traded funds (ETF) BlackRock’s iShares admitted yesterday that the ETF market needs to address issues with transparency and “potential conflicts of interest” but said that “some firms are more transparent and clear than others”.The firm was responding to a report by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), an international regulatory body affiliated with the Bank of International Settlements, which said increasing complexity and the growth of ETFs tracking illiquid asset classes and using derivatives were concerning.iShares’ Joe Linhares said: “iShares has always been transparent about the revenues generated and the risk framework surrounding the activity.”The FSB said that ETF investors, who are often pension funds or unsophisticated retail investors, could be exposed to risks they are not aware of, particularly in swap-based ETFs: “Since the swap counterparty is typically the bank also acting as ETF provider, investors may be exposed if the bank defaults,” it said. “Problems at those banks that are most active in swap-based ETFs may constitute a powerful source of contagion and systemic risk.”Meanwhile, the Financial Services Authority issued a rebuke to the European Commission for its proposed regulations of high frequency trading, claiming they will be too difficult and expensive to enforce.

A shake-up of Super Rugby could be forced through by 2016

first_imgThe South Africans hold all the cards here. They want their cake and they want a shovel to eat it with. With the rugby resources they have few can blame them, but at the moment it seems like a case of getting the amount of teams they want and playing more rugby, getting the amount of teams they want and facing trips to the northern hemisphere or not getting the amount of teams they want and scowling.Shake-up indeed. Whichever way this is split there will be grossly unhappy parties. It also looks like the international window in summer will head for a shift to July rather than June which means the Northern Hemisphere season will have to change, too. It is for the greater good of the game but we will still hear the moaners raging on when this change comes, as distracting and irritating as a shelf of mags dedicated to reality stars’ love lives. Of course even at the simple stages of suggestion this concept will anger some South Africans. Complaints about the length of season are as annoyingly constant as a library fine, with a Super Rugby season mixed in with a Currie Cup campaign and international rugby in November and the summer months. The human body can only take so much, regardless of how many notes are thrown at their feet. At some stage –normally at the dying moments of a Super Rugby season – it becomes unfair on travelling players. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The more plausible change being mooted, however, is that a Japanese and Argentine team are introduced to the mix and the currently three-conference system changes as the Super 15 becomes the Super 18. Two conferences of nine would suit the league better, with Australian and Kiwi teams in one division and the South African and Argentine teams in another, perhaps a Japanese side slipping in to the Australasian section.Does that then split to two completely separate section, or even two sections and then playoffs? What happens if Pacific Island teams are approached too? It is tough to predict. Pampas XV played Vodacom Cup rugby DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA – APRIL 26: Martin Landajo of ICBC Pampas during the Vodacom Cup match between Sharks XV and ICBC Pampas XV at Kings Park on April 26, 2013 in Durban, South Africa. (Photo by Steve Haag/Gallo Images/Getty Images) Two become one: The Lions bid farewell to the Southern Kings as the franchise replaces them in Super RugbyBy Alan DymockLIKE A Katie Price lecture on the life of Liz Taylor, it is hard to avoid talk of shocking splits.News is floating north from the SANZAR regions that the pressure to accommodate the extra Super Rugby franchise in South Africa, the Southern Kings – who recently lost the right to compete in the competition after losing a playoff with the Lions franchise – has created several new proposals for a Super shake-up in time for 2016.Obsolete badge?: They may need a new Super Rugby trophyThere are persistent rumours that in South Africa, a region considered to be so in love with their rugby that many commercial parties hope their audience will follow their teams anywhere, the teams may consider splitting from Super Rugby completely. With several shareholders, namely Premiership Rugby, holding firm and struggling to come to a resolution over the future of the Heineken Cup, an agreement over a competition with South African sides could feasibly come about.Time is running out. 2016 may seem like a long way off, but the current agreement with all the shareholders and ERC for the Heineken and Amlin Challenge Cups runs out after this coming season. Travelling would be difficult were South African teams to court the English and/or French sides, but the time difference would suit broadcasters. It is not impossible to suggest that two parties led by individuals who are driven could come to some understanding, regardless of whether it would be a long-term success or not.last_img read more

Ireland vs Scotland highlights

first_imgTuesday Feb 26, 2008 Ireland vs Scotland highlights As the Times Online said yesterday, Ireland are a team who are slowly but surely rediscovering their heart, soul and identity.Their defeat of Scotland, while not perfect, was a sign that things are starting to fall into place, with the old and young intermingling to create glimpses of the brilliance that we’ve come to know and expect from names like O’Gara, Murphy, and O’Driscoll.Ronan O’Gara himself was sublime, with his display of subtle crosskicking and pinpoint distribution that made him look the class flyhalf that we all know he is. Not to mention THAT flick pass which set up an excellent counter attacking try for Tommy Bowe.Scotland themselves still have a long way to do. While competitive at times, they still lack the edge needed at this level, which shows in that they’ve only scored two tries in six internationals. Nathan Hines blew a great chance on the line by lashing out with an outrageous punch that didn’t connect with anyone, but was penalised nevertheless and ruined that attacking opportunity.Next up, Ireland meet Wales in a mouthwatering encounter at Croke Park, while the Scots host a rejuvenated England team that will no doubt be looking to continue their good run after beating France in Paris on Saturday.

Bakery workers confront immigration edict

first_imgDozens of immigrant workers at Tom Cat Bakery will soon face auditing by Trump’s anti-immigrant Department of Homeland Security. With a history of standing up for their rights, these workers, who bake New York City’s bread, decided to call a protest rally.Homeland Security had flagged the workers for not having filed “the proper forms.” The bakery owners gave workers a brutal ultimatum: if they couldn’t come up with the forms in 10 days, they would be fired, without severance pay. Some have worked at the bakery for over 20 years.With support from Brandworkers, a food and retail workers’ rights organization, the bakery workers showed up April 8 at Trump Tower in Manhattan. They were chanting “Whose city? Our city!” Many of their signs said, “Respect our humanity!”The Tom Cat bakery workers are putting out a call to each and every ally who is opposed to racist scapegoating. They ask supporters to join together to demand justice for them and other immigrants, including at national May Day events.The workers are connected to Brandworkers as part of the Food Chain Workers Alliance, a key member of Beyond the Moment. This broad coalition is calling for militant worker actions on May Day 2017. The coalition includes the Movement for Black Lives and Movimiento Cosecha, which fights for undocumented workers ( call for “All Out for May Day!” echoed in the chants of the protest: “¡El pueblo unido jamás será vencido!

Hoosier Picked to Head New Rural Development Position at USDA

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleHot, Dry and Windy Now Applying the Crop StressNext articleAnne Hazlett Selected for Key USDA Slot on the HAT Tuesday Morning Edition Gary Truitt Hoosier Picked to Head New Rural Development Position at USDA SHARE Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue has named a Hoosier to head the newly reorganized, Rural Development Department at USDA.  Anne Hazlett has served as the Director of the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Chief of Staff for Lt Governor Becky Skillman, and most recently as Republican legal counsel for the Senate Ag Committee. Former Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock, who worked closely with Hazlett in those positions, says she is the right person for the job, “She is a well-organized, well thought, and just an extremely intellectual talent that understands agriculture and rural America.”  Katrina Hall, with Indiana Farm Bureau, told HAT, “Hazlett understands rural development, both from on the ground and an agency perspective. We are happy whenever someone is appointed who has an understanding of the dynamics they are dealing with.” She added that Hazlett was once a legal intern at IFB and recently presented a program to IFB members on federal nutrition legislation.Current Director of  ISDA Ted McKinney said Hazlett is capable of handling the challenges of running a newly reorganized program at USDA, “There is no better and more humble public servant; and she, by herself, will outwork any 2 or 3 others of us.” McKinney told HAT that Hazlett’s passion for rural America will make her a powerful force within USDA and beyond, “I know of her personal passion for addressing the opioid epidemic that is facing rural communities in all states. Rural development is about infrastructure, but it is also about addressing issues like this.”Secretary Perdue has stated that Hazlett will have a direct line to his office. “Rural America will have a seat at the main table and have walk-in privileges with the secretary on day one,” Perdue said.  “With her background of advising the Senate committee overseeing agricultural and rural development issues, Anne Hazlett comes with a depth of knowledge and experience perfectly suited to her role in helping to restore prosperity to rural America.  We are excited to have her aboard.”Hazlett said in a statement, “Small towns and the people who call them home have been my life’s passion, It is with great enthusiasm and a deep commitment to rural America that I am eager to get to work at USDA and be a partner in crafting solutions to the significant challenges these communities face from economic opportunity to infrastructure, quality housing, and addiction.” Hazlett will be familiar with many of the programs since her work on Capitol Hill over the last two Farm Bills means she actually wrote some of the legislation that she will now be administering. Hazlett is a graduate of Kansas State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in agricultural communications.  In addition, she holds a law degree from Indiana University and a masters degree in agricultural law from the University of Arkansas.
