FIFA Olympics unlikely to directly compete for government funding economist

first_imgAs footy fans around the country watch the FIFA World Cup in Russia, the anticipation is already growing for the 2026 tournament which will feature games in Canada, maybe even Edmonton.It is still a maybe, and Calgary is looking at bidding for the Winter Olympics that same year which could be another costly undertaking.But do the competing events mean one may not happen?Concordia University Economist Moshe Lander doesn’t think the Edmonton FIFA bid will affect a Calgary Olympic bid directly.“The two events would happen six months apart, they’re technically in two different cities,” he said, adding compared to the Olympics, the cost of hosting two or three soccer games is relatively small.“Olympic Games tend to quickly outrun their budgets, the typical 50 per cent cost overrun could very easily apply in Calgary once you start digging away and realizing we need to add this or fix that,” he explained.He notes the biggest cost hosting any event is security.“Winter Olympics aren’t quite as internationally covered as say the World Cup is, there’s not a corner of the world where the World Cup is not going to be a major event and so it becomes a major target,” said Lander.While all three levels of government would need to be involved, Lander says the brunt of the costs for either event would likely be borne by the provincial government.“The contribution of the federal government would probably be proportionally smaller than the requirement for the provincial government,” he said, arguing having the games in Edmonton would be huge for the city’s international profile.When asked if the province would financially support hosting World Cup games in Edmonton financially, and if a potential Calgary Olympic bid factors into that decision, 660 NEWS received this statement from Minister of Culture and Tourism Ricardo Miranda:“With respect to Edmonton hosting World Cup 2026 matches, we have received an initial proposal for funding from the City of Edmonton, but are awaiting a more detailed business plan that addresses the financial needs for a bid. While things are looking up – our economy is growing, and people are returning to work – Albertans still expect their government to spend their money in a responsible way. We will work closely with the City of Edmonton and the federal government on this in the weeks ahead.”At the end of the day, the decision could come down to FIFA.“If you feel that there’s a hostile government, rather than just an indifferent government, FIFA might use that as an excuse then to say alright then Edmonton’s gone, but given that only 10 games are going to be played in Canada, and given that it’s only going to be two, maybe three in Edmonton, the need to knock Edmonton from the list probably isn’t that great,” said Lander.last_img read more

Tensions Escalate in Bir Lahlou and Tifariti UN Must Uphold CeaseFire

Rabat – “Answering a couple of questions that were raised by various people in this room on Western Sahara: First, I can say that neither Bir Lahlou nor Tifariti fall within the buffer strip,” said UN Secretary General’s spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric during his daily press briefing on April 19, at the UN headquarters.The UN official hastened to add that the body’s meeting with the separatist front will continue to be held in Rabouni, not in Bir Lahlou, as Polisario had requested.“Second, regarding meetings with Frente Polisario: since the arrival, in late December 2017, of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Colin Stewart, MINURSO (United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara) has preferred to adhere with the longstanding practice of holding such meetings in Rabouni, Algeria,” the spokesperson said, reaffirming the international body’s commitment to respecting and upholding the spirit of the military agreement. As the move comes at a time when the UN has admitted to Polisario’s military activities in the region—Mr. Dujarric affirmed that MINURSO military observers were stopped by armed Polisario members in the vicinity of Tifariti during same briefing —questions are being raised about the separatist front’s respect for and or commitment to the military agreement.Why else would Polisario stop a MINURSO patrol unit and fire warning shots? Or request that meetings be held in Tifariti? Is it a calculated strategy designed to distort the terms of the cease-fire agreement? These are some of the questions that Moroccan and international pundits have been raising, especially given recent reports that the Polisario Front has moved to erect its de facto capital city in Tirafiti.If history is any guide, one commentator suggested, it seems the Polisario is now violating the terms of the agreement, having been unsuccessful in its attempts to provoke Morocco into an armed response–a move that would have considerably damaged the kingdom’s image in the eyes of the international community.The agreement states: “The Military Agreement No. 1, which regulates the ceasefire between the Frente POLISARIO and Morocco, establishes the Moroccan military wall as a line of separation between the Sahrawi and Moroccan armies pending the holding of the self-determination referendum and the determination of the final status of the Territory. It also establishes a 5 km wide ‘buffer zone’ to the east and along the 2700 km Moroccan military wall. 2. The agreement further establishes two restricted areas (30 km east and 30 km west of the Moroccan military wall respectively), where firing of weapons and/or military training exercises, redeployment or movement of troops, entry of arms and ammunition and improvements of defense infrastructures are not permitted, and and two areas of limited restriction that encompass the remainder of territory on both sides of Morocco’s defense wall. It is undeniably true that, as Mr. Dujarric said in his April 19 noon briefing, Bir Lahlou and Tifariti are not in the buffer strip. Yet, as clearly stipulated in the agreement, until the pending referendum is held, any military action in either area constitutes a glaring violation of the cease-fire.To be sure, by creating a military and administrative bastion in areas that it purports to have “liberated,” the separatist front seeks to take advantage of the cease-fire agreement, changing the status quo which that very agreement is supposed to maintain.In his Western Sahara report earlier this month, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres demanded that MINURSO’s mandate be extended to April 2019. Shortly after, Morocco notified the UN Security Council of the separatist front’s military movements in Marhbas and Guerguerat, both of which are in the buffer strip. King Mohammed VI subsequently informed Algeria that Morocco would not stay standing by as the separatist continued escalating tensions and provoking Moroccan military personnel in the southern province: Morocco is ready to resort to using its military might to quell the front’s provocations, the king said.And yet, despite the king’s warnings, Morocco is choosing to prioritize a political solution—through diplomacy and negotiations. To be sure, the kingdom expects other stakeholders to play their part and keep their end of the bargain. Furthermore, the UN, as the primary guarantor of the negotiation process, should show more resolve when it comes to respecting the terms of its mission.For if Morocco, too, decides to pursue a less diplomatic response, to violate or respect the agreement as it sees fit, tensions may reach untenable proportions—ones beyond the peacekeeping capacities of MINURSO or the UN. read more

Conference focuses on the rights of persons with intellectual disabilities

With Canada’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in March, it joins other countries in embracing one of the most powerful treaties to affect the rights of persons living with intellectual disabilities in our history.That landmark achievement will be celebrated this month with a sold-out international conference in Niagara Falls.The 3Fs (Rights, Respect, Responsibility) Community-University Research Alliance will host the Human Rights and Persons with Intellectual Disabilities conference at the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel on April 21 and 22.“This milestone has been a long time coming,” said conference co-ordinator Dorothy Griffiths, Associate Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences. “The adoption of the UN Convention ushers in a new era of equality and human rights for persons living with an intellectual disability.“History shows us that the rights of these individuals have been violated across all aspects of their lives — health, education, justice, sexuality, and the right to live in a community. This conference will celebrate this historic moment, but it will also chart a course for the research, planning and work that still needs to be done to make this dream a reality.”Work at the conference will help develop a “Rights Agenda” policy and practices document. Participants will look at how Canada and other nations are supporting the rights of people with intellectual disabilities. The conference has attracted international educators, health professionals, justice officials, policy analysts, researchers and advocates.Speakers include:Stephen Lewis, Professor in Global Health, McMaster UniversityMichael Bach, Executive Vice-President, Canadian Association for Community LivingTimothy Endicott, Dean, Faculty of Law, Oxford UniversityThe event is co-sponsored by the Canadian Association for Community Living, Community Living Ontario, the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, National Association for Dual Diagnosis (Ontario Chapter), Ontario OASIS, the Department of Justice Canada (Partnership & Innovation), the Southern Network of Specialized Care, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Counsel of Canada, the Law Foundation of Ontario, People First of Canada, People First of Ontario, Bethesda and the Ontario Association on Developmental Disabilities.For more info, visit www.3Rshumanrights.com.

Bereaved families could be forced to turn to ambulancechasing claims firms in

Plans to cap legal costs for NHS blunders which lead to deaths of newborns could leave the bereaved at the mercy of ambulance-chasing claims firms, a former Lord Chancellor has warned.  This covers around eight in ten medical negligence claims, including the deaths of newborns, and stillbirths – where Britain’s record is among the worst in the developed world. Ministers have said the changes will stop “unscrupulous law firms” receiving excessive legal costs that dwarf the damages received by victims. Health officials have drawn up plans to limit spending in cases where damages are worth less than £25,000.  But today Lord Falconer, Lord Chancellor under Tony Blair, raised fears that the measures…

Stanford scientists created a sound so loud it instantly boils water

first_img Tags Share your voice 5 More weird science In other words, yes metal-heads, it is possible to rock so hard that you instantly boil water. In case you’re wondering, the sound pressure equivalent of this experiment is 270 decibels. That’s louder than a rocket launch and equal to the intensity of directing all the electrical power in an entire city onto one spot.  If you ever were to experience such a sound directly, ear plugs wouldn’t help because the intensity would not only rupture your eardrums, but probably your heart and lungs as well.  So definitely don’t try this one at home kids and remember: a life filled with smooth jazz is a long life.  Researchers at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory based at Stanford University created an underwater sound so loud that it instantly vaporizes water and appears to set the threshold for how intense sound can be in water.  The scientists used SLAC’s powerful X-ray laser to blast tiny jets of water with short pulses of high frequency energy. When the x-rays hit the microscopic stream of water they instantly vaporized the water molecules around them like spit on a hot skillet. They also sent a shock wave traveling through the stream that can actually be seen moving to the left and right of the blast spot below: After blasting tiny jets of water with an X-ray laser, researchers watched left- and right-moving trains of shockwaves travel away from microbubble filled regions.  Claudiu Stan/Rutgers University Newark What’s interesting about this shock wave is that it’s strong enough that it’s easy to see how it is clearly disturbing the stream of water, but not enough that the molecules completely break down as they do at the point of contact with the powerful X-rays. The researchers suggest that the pressure created by the shock waves was just below this breaking point. That means it would also appear to be the upper limit of how loud a sound can possibly get under water before it breaks it apart, essentially boiling it on contact. The research was published in a recent issue of the journal Physical Review Fluids.  Comments Science finally confirms that Mars is farting Scientists lay out plan to use air conditioners to save the world ‘Magnetoreception’ is the new human superpower we’ve always had Sci-Techlast_img read more

Cowboy Bebop Is Getting A Live Action TV Series

first_imgStay on target No matter how big of an anime fan you are, chances are you’ve heard of Cowboy Bebop, or you’ve watched it because it’s a classic. Widely considered one of the best out there, the 1998 Japanese series has been inspiring newcomers to the genre for years. And now it’s getting a live action television adaptation by Tomorrow Studios, a new partnership between ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein.That name might not mean that much to you, but he’s a producer and actor known for his work on Prison Break, which he served as executive producer on. He’s worked on several series, to that end, so he’s got plenty of experience under his belt. The live action series will, in fact, be executive produced by Sunset Inc., the same studio that handled the original animated series, as well as by a group called Midnight Radio: Josh Appelbaum, Andre Named, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg.Chris Yost is being tasked with writing the adaptation. Yost has worked on several properties for Marvel and other comic book-related series. This all sounds like a lot of capable people, especially with a comic book writer on board with experience writing several different characters and stories.AdChoices广告Unfortunately, those are the only real facts we have at the moment regarding what might happen with the series. There’s no casting info right now, but let’s hope there’s at the very least some sort of attempt at finding the best people for the roles. And there’s also the hope that it retains its humor and snarkiness and doesn’t attempt to turn into some sort of dark look at bounty hunting in 2071. Spike Spiegel has a certain cool that could be ruined very quickly if too heavy of a hand is taken with the adaptation. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Guatemala arrests nine in wake of deadly protest

first_imgNo related posts. GUATEMALA CITY – Guatemalan authorities arrested a colonel and eight soldiers over the alleged extrajudicial killings of eight Indian demonstrators at a protest last week, an official said Thursday.Attorney General Claudia Paz y Paz told reporters that the prosecution considers Colonel Juan Chiroy to be “primarily responsible” for the fatalities, as he was in command of the troops at the October 4 demonstration.Those detained, including two women, were being held in barracks in the country’s capital on the order of President Otto Pérez.Clashes between Indians and soldiers erupted after thousands of Indians blocked sections of the Pan American Highway in the department of Totonicapan, 105 miles west of the capital, to protest hikes in electricity prices.Investigators found more than 100 shell casings at the scene — all of them fired from the type of assault rifles used by the army.

Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado visits the United States

first_img Facebook Comments Our chat with Epsy Campbell, Costa Rica’s vice president-elect Today and tomorrow President Carlos Alvarado is visiting Washington D.C., his first trip abroad following his inauguration on May 8.The president’s meetings will focus on issues including security, investment, finance, the environment and technology, according to a press release from Casa Presidencial. Alvarado meeting with members of the U.S. Congress as well as officials from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Organization of American States (OAS), the Council of the Americas and the Inter-American Dialogue, as well as environmental leaders and NGOs.Alvarado is traveling with with Michael Soto, Minister of Public Security; Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Minister of the Environment and Energy; Adriana Murillo, director of Foreign Policy; and Román Macaya, the Costa Rican Ambassador in Washington.The purpose of this visit is to help position strategically Costa Rica and deepen the bilateral relation between Costa Rica and the United States for the next four years.“This visit seeks to consolidate the cooperation of [the United States], multilateral organizations and NGOs on priority issues for our administration such as citizen security, fighting against organized crime and the decarbonization of our economy,” Alvarado said in the news release.The president’s visit has additional significance: because Costa Rica’s Constitution calls for the first vice president to stand in for the president while he or she is out of the country or incapacitated, Epsy Campbell will be the country’s presidente en ejercicio during Alvarado’s trip. Technically, she’s therefore the America’s first black woman president – for a few days, at least.center_img Related posts:The future is in our hands Costa Rica at a glance: top news from the past week Costa Rica’s Oscar Arias: ‘Oliver North and the NRA deserve each other’ Costa Rica dismantles international drug trafficking ringlast_img read more

So long as both are under 12kg, you can take these 2 items onto the plane with you. If you’re flying Business or as a SkyTeam Member, you’ll be permitted 2 larger items of luggage.

SEC investigating loan agreements between Laiki and MIG

first_imgBy Poly PantelidesTHE SECURITIES and Exchange Commission (SEC) will be investigating potential law violations in relation to loan agreements between the former Laiki Bank and Marfin Investment Group (MIG) that were secured with MIG shares as collateral.SEC officials have been instructed to investigate potentially misleading statements or information in financial statements and leaflets in relation to the loans handed out by Laiki to MIG, SEC chairwoman Demetra Kalogirou told the Cyprus News Agency.She said new data had arisen meriting an investigation, adding that they would be working alongside the state’s legal services. Police have been ordered to launch a criminal probe into what caused Cyprus’ economic meltdown to span the years 2006 to 2013. This will include the transfer of capital from Laiki Bank to Greece. Because of the technical nature of the investigation, SEC will be assisting police.In June, the Nicosia district court issued an interim court order freezing assets worth about €5.3 billion belonging to former Laiki Bank strongman Andreas Vgenopoulos and two others, former Laiki CEO Efthimios Bouloutas and former board member Kyriacos Magiras. The orders, which have a global reach, were secured by the administrator overseeing the resolution of Laiki. The court also banned Vgenopoulos’ MIG Holdings SA from making any transfers or payments to the benefit of the three men.Vgenopoulos responded by announcing he was suing the administrator, claiming she defrauded the court and committed perjury when seeking the injunction to freeze his assets.The SEC is currently examining a statement by Bouloutas in relation to prior statements he made claiming Laiki was healthy, solvent, and had no capitalisation needs.The SEC is also investigating Laiki’s heavy investment in Greek debt and potentially misleading statements in relation to the investment, and has asked former executives to explain why they did not publicise a decision to buy back Greek bonds. A Greek debt write-down in 2011 severely impacted Laiki.Cyprus has been forced to shut down Laiki and impose huge losses on Bank of Cyprus depositors in order to keep it afloat and secure a €10 billion bailout loan from international lenders. The Bank of Cyprus got landed with over €9.0 billion that Laiki had amassed in emergency liquidity assistance.Vgenopoulos resigned from Laiki’s board in November 2011, followed by Bouloutas in December that year, and by the summer of 2012, the government was forced to bail out the lender to the tune of €1.8 billion, acquiring 84 per cent of its share capital. The bank had failed to attract capital investors. By March this year, Laiki only had €125 million in funds, according to the Cyprus Central Bank.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.

The average score in North Dakota, Ive always had a surprising amount of respect for Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes. But so much online commenting is just trollery. And often those trolls do crowd out civil discussion Sometimes I feel like the only people left on Twitter are the trolls The basic idea of the comments on Gizmodo and Lifehacker and Kotaku and the other Gawker properties is that they should reflect a conversation between the writer and readers And I think most people agree that our comments theyre not perfect the occasional troll makes his or her way in But generally discussions augment the stories and thats why people spend longer on a Gawker story and are more likely to be engaged than they are on other news properties Why are online comments so misogynist Theres racism theres misogyny theres many nasty thoughts I think it boils down to the fact that people are mean Sometimes theyre supportive and loving but sometimes theyre mean And anonymity gives people a chance to share things about themselves that they would never share with anybody else in a constructive fashion Do you think other media outlets have been lax in covering Silicon Valley Silicon Valley is a huge story and has been covered thoroughly But Silicon Valley billionaires and Silicon Valley companies are notoriously controlling I worked as a journalist for The Financial Times in Silicon Valley and I remember even back then that if you played along and if a story followed a companys talking points you were fine And if you asked critical questions particularly if those critical questions got an airing in the article itself then youd lose access and you wouldnt be invited back you wouldnt get early sight of gadgets or a piece of news Silicon Valley I think has used the media and public fascination with its products as an instrument of power And I think thats natural And I think its also natural that there be a reaction to that And readers gravitate to more skeptical cynical or critical coverage Which is the reason why Valleywag the Gawker section covering Silicon Valley was such a phenomenon in Silicon Valley People may have hated it but they were all reading it Do you have any regret about not selling before these legal troubles depressed your sale price The consolidation of digital media has only been going for the last 12 months This lawsuit began in 2012 There was no window Wasn’t the Huffington Post sold before 2012 That was 2011 Look we built the largest independent digital media company without outside capital without buying traffic And we pursued that path for as long as we could The market is consolidating right now If Gawker Media ends up as part of Ziff Davis I think its be an extremely powerful combination It will be the dominant digital media player in technology and video games coverage it will be very strong in lifestyle This is a game of musical chairs And there arent all that many chairs There are plenty of people dancing around And I think Gizmodo Lifehacker Kotaku Jalopnik Deadspin and Jezebel are going to be enduring properties hopefully with stronger backing stronger financial backing than they have been in the past And less distracted by the litigation that enveloped Gawkercom Is there anybody you wouldnt sell to Anybody I wouldnt sell to I think theres certain potential acquirers that our writers would not want to work for But my main focus is to get the very best deal that we can to maximize value and to provide satisfying and secure jobs for the people who work here The people in my newsroom here want to know who was your favorite editor-in-chief at Gawker This is just a matter of personal taste I liked the original Elizabeth Spiers Gawker I like in particular the way that the humor was delivered I like the way that she writes intelligent pieces with witty asides clearly marked So you know what shes saying you know whats a joke and whats serious And that meshes with my own personal style Is there a future for independent journalism I think Facebook instant articles and the strength of Facebook as a marketplace for both content and advertising actually does offer some opportunities to independent publishers The original goal of Gawker was actually to be a completely lightweight organization employing only writers and using technology and taking technology and advertising sales kind of off the shelf And I think it was early and thats why we developed our own publishing platform and our own advertising sales force But I think the time for that idea will come again Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsIDEAS Darlena Cunha is a contributor to TIME Brock Turner is a convicted sex criminal He was unanimously convicted of assault with the intent to commit rape sexual penetration with a foreign object of an intoxicated person and sexual penetration with a foreign object of an unconscious person He was caught on the scene apprehended by police and a full medical examination on his victim took place immediately Two eyewitnesses say they found him thrusting himself on an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at Stanford University on the night of Jan 17 2015 They said they chased Turner down when he ran and held him there until the police arrived The woman woke up in a hospital in San Jose hours later with no recollection of the event Turner is not described as a rapist because California law defines rape in terms of sexual intercourse Since Turner violated his victim with a foreign object and not his genitalia he gets a pass on the rapist label But regardless of semantics Turner is a convicted sex criminal The end Yet Turner continues to maintain that his crime was drinking and it looks like the judge agrees Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky chose to extend leniency to Turner out of concern for the "severe" impact imprisonment would have on Turner Alcohol doesnt sexually assault people Alcohol did not forcibly penetrate an unconscious woman behind a dumpster The protection given to white men of privilege is the issue Notice the same leniency and understanding was not extended to Brian Banks the now-proven innocent black 16-year-old who was tried as an adult and wrongfully served five years in prison for a rape he didnt commit By turning this into a learning moment about alcohol Turner and his defenders are merely deflecting what has been proven in a court of law to be absolute blame Why is it that alcohol absolves our young men of privilege but condemns our young women If a woman has had too much to drink our culture writes off anything bad that happens to her as her due Shes been rightfully punished for the dangers of alcohol She has been brought up from a young age to know that drinking heavily could lead to her victimization and she chose to do it anyway Therefore her victimization was imminent and her punishment fits her crime She knew better A childhood friend of Turners wrote that the victim was just as much to blame as Turner due to the amount shed had to drink and complained that only Turner was being held accountable But is he Turners entire network of family and friends wrote character letters outlining how devastating the verdict would be for him and for them helping to form the judges decision His grandparents penned a moving bit about how kind Turner had been to one of his uncles with disabilities The conviction they wrote made them cry Turners father wrote a letter defending his son saying hes suffered enough In it he mentions how anxious the 20-year-old has become and he blames the verdicts Not the assault but the verdicts Turner can no longer eat his favorite snacks is literally a line in this letter But what about the woman he assaulted First reports of the sentencing labelled Turner a champion swimmer and focused on the opportunities now lost to the young man The sheriffs department withheld his mug shot for days and media ran his smiling innocent-looking yearbook photo instead Many bits of information about this story were tinged with sympathy for the perpetrator And none of it is relevant to the issue at hand It doesnt matter what a nice kid he was before he assaulted someone It doesnt matter what a good swimmer he is It doesnt matter that he drank too much It doesnt matter that he thinks hes going to go around to college campus to lecture on the dangers of drinking Because drinking is not the issue Rape is the issue Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading

a deal the activist investor said could result in cost synergies of up to $1 billion In a letter addressed to Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer Starboard which disclosed a "significant ownership stake" argues Yahoo is "deeply undervalued relative to the sum of its parts" The investor which generated some headlines recently for criticizing Olive Gardens breadsticks strategy said a combination of Yahoo and AOL 346% could reduce the cost overlaps in their display advertising businesses and cut both companies overhead costs "Importantly we believe the combined entity would be able to more successfully navigate the ongoing industry changes such as the growth of programmatic advertising and migration to mobile" Starboard said A Yahoo 331% representative wasnt immediately available to comment on Starboards letter Mayer ranked 16th on Fortunes Most Powerful Women in Business list is facing pressure in the wake of Alibabas 031% initial public offering last week At least three analysts have downgraded the companys stock this week citing the absence of a turnaround at Yahoos core business and limited upside to owning a slice of Alibaba Yahoo still owns about 400 million shares of Alibaba a stake worth more than $35 billion before taxes The Wall Street Journal has reported Starboards move is also turning up the heat on Mayer to perform Fortune earlier this year asked an important question: "Will Marissa Mayer save Yahoo" noting that while the companys stock value has climbed under Mayers tenure the strength has had little to do with her turnaround efforts While Yahoo has announced some high-profile acquisitions (including the $11 billion deal to buy Tumblr) the companys ad business remains challenged Starboard points out that even after Yahoos "ill-timed and tax-inefficient" sale of Alibaba stock the companys remaining stake in Alibaba "is currently worth more than the entire enterprise value of Yahoo" When adding in the companys stake in Yahoo Japan those two minority interests are worth about $11 billion or $11 per share more than the current enterprise value of the company The activist investor claims the "valuation gap" is due to the fact that investors expect Yahoo management to continue past practices including acquisitions at "massive valuations with seemingly little to no regard for profitability and return on capital" Another problem according to Starboard is monetizing its non-core minority equity stakes in a tax-inefficient manner "We believe that Yahoos core business is valuable However given some recent operational challenges we would expect it to trade at the low end of industry multiples" Starboard said This article originally appeared on Fortunecom Contact us at editors@timecomMumbai: Tata Steel said on Wednesday any delay in the acquisition of debt-ridden Bhushan Steel may lead to governance issues since the latter has a running plant The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on Tuesday approved Tata Steel’s bid for Bhushan Steel "In the short term I think the delay in the process (acquisition) is a concern We worry about the governance issues since Bhushan Steel is a running plant" Tata Steel executive director and chief financial officer Koushik Chatterjee told reporters here The committee of creditor (CoC) had approved Rs 32500-crore deal along with 1227 percent equity in Bhushan Steel offered by Tata Steel "We valued the assets on the basis of going concern and on the basis of strategic opportunity it can provide to us" he said Chatterjee said that the company want to see that the physical assets of Bhushan Steel are kept properly "The depletion in assets in any form will be a concern and we will certainly look into it whenever the process is completed" he said The company’s chief executive officer and managing director T V Narendran said that acquisition of any plant is always an anxiety for the future "We think the quickest way to resolve that is to close the transaction fast" he said "The Bhushan Steel plant has a five million tonne capacity We can easily see it going to 4-45 million tonne level Beyond the five million tonne level there will be a need for more investment" he added Narendran said the acquisition of Bhushan steel which has good presence in automotive steel will help the company in the growth of its automotive steel production "We also have an opportunity with Bhushan Steel because we are expanding the second phase of our Kalinganagar unit" Narendran said Representational image Reuters Tata Steel has already tied up for financing of Rs 35000 crore for acquiring Bhushan Steel of which the equity portion is Rs 18000 crore while the debt is Rs 17000 crore "Post acquisition the delisting of Bhushan Steel is also possible but it is too early to comment" Koushik said ‘Speedy resolution has positive implications’ Meanwhile S&P Global Ratings on Wednesday said that speedy resolution of Tata Steel’s takeover of Bhushan Steel has positive implications for resolving other stressed assets in the Indian banking system S&P Global Ratings said on Wednesday More than Rs 1 trillion ($15 billion equivalent) of steel assets are up for auction This is the leading edge of an estimated Rs 9 trillion bad loan burden at Indian banks it said "The speedy resolution of Tata Steel Ltd’s takeover of Bhushan Steel Ltd affirms India’s fledgling bankruptcy law and has positive implications for resolving other stressed assets in the Indian banking system" S&P said in a statement Under the Bankruptcy Law Indian banks have forced a number of defaulted steel mills to bankruptcy court The law provides for resolution of bankruptcy cases within 270 days Tata Steel will pay upfront Rs 35200 crore ($54 billion equivalent) to take over Bhushan making this the biggest asset sale yet to be processed through India’s new bankruptcy courts The case was resolved in just 10 months and closed on Tuesday when a court approved Tata’s bid and dismissed claims from other creditors S&P Global Ratings said a time-bound resolution is a positive development for India’s business environment The previous open-ended resolution framework allowed vested interests to perpetually delay bankruptcy proceedings it said "In our view the Indian government and the Reserve Bank of India have enforced the new code by creating new dedicated bankruptcy courts with the power and resources to achieve timely rulings" S&P said The RBI’s ongoing pressure on banks to recognise and resolve problem assets will lead to enhanced accountability and long-term sustainability of the banking sector said the US-based rating agency For the steel industry consolidation is a long-term positive Large metal companies such as Tata Steel JSW Steel Ltd You see
