Show Comments ▼ KCS-content ACTIVIST shareholder group Laxey Partners has played down the significance of a preliminary meeting with Alliance Trust ahead of the groups’s shareholders’ meeting, to be held on 20 May.Colin Kingsnorth, Laxey’s co-founder, told City A.M. last night: “It will only be a formal meeting to discuss the results they posted last week. Change can only happen when shareholders vote for it to happen.”He was responding to a move by Katherine Garrett–Cox, chief executive of the UK’s largest investment trust, who said at the weekend that she would meet activist investors before the general meeting, when shareholders will vote on resolutions put to the Board.Kingsnorth proceeded to defend himself from Garrett-Cox’s claims that none of the major shareholders have publicly supported Laxey yet, predicting a big turnout on 20 May.“She makes it sound like it’s only us, but that’s not true,” he said.“All major investors will be supportive of a policy to narrow the discount, and ours is the best – and only – proposal put forward so far.”Kingsnorth and Garrett–Cox have been exchanging blows for the past months.Laxey has publicly argued that the trust is “underperforming”, and has been pushing for the trust to introduce a discount control mechanism (DCM) to buy back shares from as early as December 2010.Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, Garrett–Cox dismissed Laxey’s criticism as “rubbish”, calling for shareholders to back the present management.Kingsnorth has criticised Garrett-Cox’s pay and bonuses and she has responded by questioning his remuneration package.“She has to justify it (her salary) in front of the people whose money she’s looking after. “We are a private company, I am self employed and I can tell you, we pay ourselves less that she pays herself,” he said. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search Adsautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Share More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com whatsapp Sunday 17 April 2011 10:34 pm Laxey pins its hopes on key investor vote Tags: NULL

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From Orange County Commissioner Rod LoveLast weekend, the Apopka community came together for the Apopka Sports Hall of Fame Ceremonial Luncheon, where they witnessed the inauguration of the First Apopka Sports Hall of Fame class.Orange County Commissioner Rod LoveThe Apopka Sports Hall of Fame was established under the auspices of the International Leadership Consortium for Communities, Inc. (ILCC). Founded by Ms. L. Sherrie Parker, the ILCC is an organization whose mission is to empower the community by providing mentoring to youth, as well as, outreach, education, scholarships and business/vocational training to community members.To honor the rich history and heritage of Phillis Wheatley Sports, the first class of inductees included a select number of former student-athletes and coaches from Phillis Wheatley High School (“Panthers”) from the 1950’s and 1960’s (pre-integration era). During this period, African American student-athletes and coaches paved the way with extraordinary athletic achievements that had not yet been recognized.A total of 44 nominees were inducted (including posthumously) into the inaugural Apopka Sports Hall of Fame. Each year thereafter, additional inductees will be selected, including honorees from Apopka High School and additional honorees who have made significant contributions to the community. Three individuals had been selected to receive the 2018 Community Hero award (posthumously) as they had exemplified the ideals of true community pioneers and trailblazers in supporting their community: Mr. Marvin C. Zander; Dr. James Subbs, Sr.; and Mr. James “Red” Johnson.This was a community event and proceeds will be used to help an array of youth sports leadership and academic support programs and services. There were over 300 people in attendance at the event. Notable attendees included City of Apopka Mayor Bryan Nelson and his wife, Debbie, City of Apopka Commissioner Alexander Smith, Former State Representative Dr. Alzo J. Reddick and Former NFL Football Player Sammie Smith. I am truly pleased by the turnout and success of this event and feel that it is a great way to honor those who have utilized their talents to inspire, bring change, and help the greater good of the Apopka community. This event was an excellent opportunity for Apopka youth to learn about the rich history and heritage of the inductees and those whose shoulders they stand on; our young people have the chance to reflect on the contributions of the inductees and inspire themselves to go beyond in their accomplishments and future endeavors.

Demonstrator in Southeastern Ukraine, April 15.Photo: BorotbaApril 15 — A coordinated military attack has begun against the anti-fascist resistance in Southeastern Ukraine. The attack began hours after the U.S. confirmed that CIA Director John Brennan had visited Kiev on the weekend of April 12-13 for secret meetings with coup leaders. In other words, Washington gave its approval for the impending attack.Overnight on April 14 came numerous reports and videos of Ukrainian tanks moving toward cities in the Donetsk region, where forces opposed to the Kiev coup regime have seized government buildings and declared an independent People’s Republic in Donetsk.Media reports confirmed that a major attack was underway in cities of Kramatorsk and Slavyansk in the Donetsk region. Casualties are reported among the anti-fascist fighters.In sync with the regime’s assault, Right Sector fascists stormed the offices of Ukraine’s Communist Party in the northeastern city of Sumy, where they beat Regional Secretary Valery Siryachenko. Earlier, Right Sector members had stormed Communist Party headquarters in the western city of Rovno.In Kharkov, the office of the leftist Union Borotba (Struggle) and People’s Unity coalition was again seized by right-wing militias on April 15. Borotba has been leading a protest movement there demanding a regional referendum on autonomy from the Kiev coup regime.Anti-coup regime demonstration in Donetsk, Ukraine, April 13.The Kiev junta has begun an “anti-terrorist operation” against those in Southeast Ukraine who rebelled against the oligarchs and nationalists. There is an absolutely false campaign in the oligarchic media to discredit the rebels. Supposedly we are all agents of the Russian secret services.This is a blatant lie. Ukrainian citizens rebelled against the junta. Among the 64 political prisoners arrested in the Kharkov Regional State Administration, all are citizens of Ukraine and Kharkov-area residents.On the other hand, there is increasing evidence that the junta intends to use mercenaries from private military companies — including foreign ones — against the rebels. Ukrainian police and military personnel have refused to fight against their own people. Kharkovites have seen police on Freedom Square with St. George’s ribbons tied to their shields, showing they are with the people. In this situation, the junta will rely on mercenaries and neo-Nazi groups such as the Right Sector, which they have hurriedly dressed in the uniform of the “National Guard.”Union Borotba declares that the People’s Republic is the creation of the protesters in the Southeast, not the machination of Russian special forces. This is the will of the people in the Southeastern provinces.The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the U.N. speaks of the right “to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression.” The people of the Southeast have exercised that right.The junta wants to suppress the rebellious people by military force, organizing an “anti-terrorist operation.” We declare that it is impossible to win this war against its own people. In trying to suppress the people’s movement, the junta digs its own grave.A smear campaign has been unleashed against the forces leading the protests, including Borotba. All these lies aim to split our movement and sow distrust among activists.Borotba advocates unity of the protest forces. We oppose the junta, which stands for the country’s richest oligarchs, supported by Western imperialism. In this confrontation, unity and cooperation of all organizations and leaders of the protest movement are crucial. To do this, we have created a voluntary association of organizations, advocates and citizens of Kharkov — Popular Unity. Popular Unity is open to all. In unity — there is strength.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Facebook Twitter Building Demand, Job 1 for Corn Growers By Gary Truitt – Nov 13, 2016 Building Demand, Job 1 for Corn GrowersChris NovakLast week, the USDA confirmed that we have a 15.2BB corn crop. The challenge now is finding the demand for all that corn. Building demand is the top priority for the National Corn Growers Association.NCGA executive Director Chris Novak says any hope for increased corn demand and higher corn prices will have to come from the export market, “Building demand for the corn market is going to be a slow process,” he stated. “If you put it on a boat and sell it overseas, you can increase demand rather quickly. But increased demand from the ethanol market and livestock markets is going to take longer.” He noted that, while livestock numbers are up, livestock producers are not profitable and thus will not be a growing market for corn.Despite the anti-trade rhetoric of the campaign, Novak is optimistic that President-elect Trump will make agricultural trade part of his economic plan, “We need our government to step up and make sure trade works for America.” He said the Chinese have manipulated the rules and trade. He looks to the new administration to level the playing field with both China and the EU, “This is a role the Trump administration can play in making sure we have open and competitive markets for U.S. agriculture.”Novak is optimistic that the Trump administration will do away with burdensome regulations which will also help corn growers be more productive and profitable. Yet, he is not optimistic that we will see much price recovery in 2017 unless we have an unexpected event.

News November 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Gaddafi calls for release of all detained journalists Reporters Without Borders welcomes last night’s report on state television that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has given instructions for the release of all the journalists held in a wave of arrests since 3 November (http://en.rsf.org/libye-wave-of-arrests-of-journalists-who-08-11-2010,38776.html).Issued on the eve of a periodic review of Libya’s record by the United Nations Human Rights Council, the orders for their release unfortunately reflect Col. Gaddafi’s desire to stay in power while normalising political relations with Libya’s economic partners rather than any consideration for freedom of expression.Reporters Without Borders hopes that the announcement is quickly followed by the release of all the detained journalists.————09/11/2010Blow against freedom of expressionWave of arrests of journalists who urged return of opposition figuresReporters Without Borders today strongly condemned a wave of arrests by Libya’s secret services of around 30 journalists that began on 5 November 2010.The roundup followed the publication of an editorial in the daily Oea and the news agency Libyan Press calling for opponents and former comrades-in-arms of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in the 1969 revolution living in exile abroad, to return to the country and take an active role in politics.The worldwide press freedom organisation condemned the arrests and called for the immediate release of the journalists, saying that it was the reaction of a draconian state, deaf to the need for protecting human rights and democratic freedoms. It demonstrated that the regime was determined to be intractable in relation to freedom of expression.The two media belong to the media foundation al-Ghad, owned by Seif al-Islam Gaddafi, son of Colonel Gaddafi. The director of the foundation, Mr Dogha, who lives in London, was warned that he would be arrested if he returned to the country. Oea was banned from appearing on 3 November 2010, when the people’s public committee (the government) ordered the national printers to shelve printing the weekly. Websites Libya al-Yom and the Libyan League for Human Rights run by opponents of the regime living abroad, were shut down on the same day. Another website, al-Manara Lili’lem was hacked into and made inaccessible, on 4 November 2010. It is now up and running again and covering current news event. Around ten journalists were arrested in the capital, Tripoli, overnight on 5-6 November. Fresh arrests continued elsewhere in the country in the following days. To date, around 28 journalists are being detained at al-Sika prison in the capital. Among them are an Egyptian and a Tunisian journalist, both women. The arrests have taken place against a background of rising tension in Libya between reformers and conservatives. Top ranking members of the Revolutionary Council recently called for violence against supporters of what they called “a reformist tsunami in the country”. The UN Human Rights Council is tomorrow due to carry out its Universal Periodic Review of Libya. Reporters Without Borders has contributed to this review by releasing its own assessment of the state of press freedom in Libya (see: http://en.rsf.org/libye-reporters-without-borders-08-11-2010,38768.html). Libya is ranked 160th out of 178 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ press freedom index for 2010.

iStock(VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.) — A city worker opened fire “indiscriminately” at the Municipal Center in Virginia Beach Friday afternoon, killing at least 12 people before he was shot dead by police in a “long gun battle,” police said.Eleven of the victims died on the scene and one succumbed to their injuries on the way to the hospital, Virginia Beach Police Chief James Cervera said during a press conference Friday night.An additional four victims were in surgery at local hospitals for their injuries, and “others may have self-transported,” Cervera said.Two law enforcement sources confirmed to ABC News that DeWayne Craddock, 40, is the alleged suspect in the shooting.Craddock was recently terminated from his position as a city employee, according to two law enforcement sources.Three of the injured patients were at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, with two in critical condition and one in fair condition. Another patient was at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in critical condition, according to Dale Gauding, senior communications adviser for brand engagement at Sentara Healthcare.One of the injured victims is a Virginia Beach police officer who was saved by his bulletproof vest, Cervera said.The suspect, who had access to the Municipal Center as a public utilities employee, walked into the building at around 4 p.m. and began to “indiscriminately fire upon all the victims,” Cervera said. There were victims on all three floors of the building, and one outside, who Cervera said was shot before the suspect entered the building.The suspect had two firearms — a long gun and a handgun — law enforcement sources told ABC News.Four officers responded to the shooting and engaged in a “long gun battle” with the suspect, eventually shooting him, Cervera said, noting that the officers likely “stopped the suspect from committing more carnage.”Responding officers also secured as many victims as they could, Cervera said.A .45-caliber handgun was found with multiple empty magazines following the shootout, Cervera said.“We just heard that there was an active shooter and we just barricaded ourselves in offices to make sure that we were all safe, and I called 911 just to get them to come there as fast as possible,” said Megan Banton, a Public Works employee who was on the second floor of the building. “My boss was, like, ‘This is not a drill. Get down. Call 911.’”Officials are in the process of identifying the victims, Cervera said, adding that their names would be released once all of their family members were notified.“This is the most the most devastating day in the history of Virginia Beach,” said Virginia Beach Mayor Bobby Dyer.Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam described the shooting as “unspeakable, senseless violence.”Authorities are asking people to avoid the Municipal Center area. The scene is now secure, but it is still active, Cervera said.The FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and Virginia State Police are assisting in the investigation.Cervera described the shooting as a “devastating incident” that “will change a lot of lives.”“I just don’t know why anyone would do something like that,” Banton said. “I don’t know what would possess someone to come in and start shooting at people.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Gambino is also listed as the director of a soft drinks firm which has also faced compulsory strike-off action, official records show.camden council Crown Managed Properties Ltd February 12, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
