We have achieved a good percentage,” Lootah said told reporters when asked about banks agreement on the plan. “We are in the final stages of negotiation and we are confident we will reach an agreement in the near future.”Under Nakheel’s restructuring plan, trade creditors have been offered 40 per cent of what they are owed in cash and the remaining 60 per cent through a sukuk, or Islamic bond.Conglomerate Dubai World has near-unanimous approval for its $24.9bn debt plan, it said in September. But Nakheel – its flagship property arm undergoing parallel negotiations – has yet to secure backing needed for the plan.An industry executive said on Tuesday he expected the sukuk to be worth around 6bn dirhams ($1.63bn).“We are just doing a preliminary talk and preliminary investigation,” Lootah said when asked if the company had applied to list the bond on the Nasdaq Dubai exchange.Dubai contractor Arabtec’s chief financial officer Ziad Makhzoumi said late last month that Nakheel had applied for the listing on Nasdaq Dubai. Nakheel said it has already repaid trade creditors 4.6bn dirhams as part of the plan.Lootah’s comments on the restructuring affirmed the time-frame for completion of the deal that Nakheel chief executive Chris O’Donnell gave in late September.Nakheel said it has about 85 per cent of acceptances, by value, for its debt restructuring and was “well on target to achieve its 95 per cent acceptance of all payables and claims within the near future”.Nakheel has recently announced the restart of several projects and expects to start building again on all-short term projects by the end of October. It is looking expand its retail business with the expansion of its Dragonmart mall and possibly Ibn Battuta mall in Dubai early next year. whatsapp Share Sunday 3 October 2010 10:16 pm Tags: NULL

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. On Sunday, we heard that Warren Buffett has abandoned investing in airlines. And shares in easyJet (LSE: EZJ) and International Consolidated Airlines both lost ground on Monday. The easyJet share price fell 6% in early trading, with the International price down 4.5%.Speaking at the annual shareholders’ meeting, Buffett revealed that Berkshire Hathaway had sold all its airline holdings. After steering clear of airlines for years, Berkshire had started buying in 2016, investing $7bn-$8bn.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…UK airlines had already been in a big slump as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. But loss of confidence in the sector from the world’s best-known investor surely won’t help.Since the crisis hit, the easyJet share price has crashed 65% as aviation traffic has pretty much halted. It had been climbing in the second half of 2019, but that was after years of weakness. Even before the virus arrived, the easyJet share price had lost around 35% over the previous five years.International Consolidated Airlines, the owner of British Airways, has seen its shares lose 68% of their value too.easyJet share priceIt’s easy to sound smug, and I really don’t mean to. But never buying an airline has always been a key part of my investing strategy.There have been times in recent years when I’ve liked the look of the easyJet share price, as I think the company has largely been very well managed during its existence. But my conclusion has always been it’s only one for those who are prepared to take the risks that come with airlines.I’ve had mixed feelings about International too, especially as its dividend had been climbing. Reservations about buying an airline are one thing, but a nice long-term income stream is very tempting. And, after some historic bad old days, I do think the company’s management was getting things right.“It was a mistake”It’s tempting to see Buffett’s airline sale as a knee-jerk reaction to a short-term problem. But it seems he’s looking at the longer-term prospects. Telling us he made a mistake, he added: “I don’t know that three, four years from now people will fly as many passenger miles as they did last year. You’ve got too many planes.”Buffett also noted something I think is relevant to UK investors tempted by the low easyJet share price, or considering becoming a part-owner of British Airways. He said: “I was wrong about that business because of something that was not in any way the fault of four excellent CEOs. Believe me. No joy of being a CEO of an airline.“No controlThat, for me, is the core reason why I’ve always resisted the easyJet share price. Airlines have their businesses largely dictated by factors outside of their control. No matter how strong easyJet’s management, there’s nothing they can do about fuel prices. And no matter how good its marketing, you can’t change the fact ticket price is all that matters to most flyers. Price competition is what gets seats sold, and that’s intense.Now, obviously, nobody saw the coronavirus pandemic coming. But avoiding companies whose fates are largely outside of the control of their management teams is, I think, a sound part of my investing strategy. The easyJet share price still doesn’t tempt me.

The focal point of the garden is his bed, which will be plantedup with a camomile lawn, lavender and passiflora, all plants with sleep inducingproperties, to suggest the dreamscape of the story.Bananas are key plants in the garden and a signature plant for Tiggy who usesthem in nearly all the gardens she designs, for the incongruity of seeing alittle bit of the jungle in London. In this garden she has selected them forthe fresh young green paddles, the way they move in the wind, and just when thebig ones start looking a bit tatty and shredded the baby ones are at the ready,waiting to unfurl so there is always more fun to be had! They are friendly,happy plants and just like the wild things they suggest far away, tropicalplaces.Ornamental rhubarb has been chosen for its big, generous leaf size, but also forthe incredible colour and exuberance of the scarlet plumes which defy gravitywhen the specimens are in good health.A passionate rhubarb eater, Tiggy is determined that the rhubarb triangle inYorkshire does not disappear, so using them in her garden is a way of pledgingsupport for this disappearing industry!The beautiful botanical engineering of the umbels of Angelica, supported bytheir magnificent fleshy stems enchanted Tiggy and she chose them to tower abovesmall children and encourage them to really get in amongst them, be overwhelmedand excited by their shapes. Catalpa have gorgeous, friendly heart shapedleaves which create a great mop of a head and the long slender beans are bothfascinating and rather unexpected. Alocasia macrorrhiza, the Giant Elephant’sEar along with the mighty gunnera manicata, are both great plants for kids tohide beneath and be inspired by.For elegance and restraint in this otherwise playful and chaotic garden, thedeep plum and brown ruffles of Iris ‘Quechee’ and Iris ‘Dutch Chocolate’contrast nicely with the glaucous swords of their leaves. Tiggy believes thatfor children, plant names are very important and by describing a colour aschocolate, it is much more evocative than simply brown. Plant nomenclature isalways seductive and who hasn’t been swayed by a good name?The fruit of the artichoke, like the umbels of angelica is an incredible feat ofengineering. Their scales suggest the fangs and talons of the wild things andanticipate their arrival, as do the other somewhat overwhelming shapes and sizesof the other plants. Visitors to the garden will see the possibilities of lightand shade that these plants can create.The CAF garden with all its sumptuous planting along with the current RHSinitiative to highlight the joys of gardening to children will hopefullyencourage more young people to pass through the Chelsea Flower Show turnstilesthis year and in turn inspire them to get planting. The CAF garden isultimately a garden for children and is designed with children over fiveyears in mind (the over fives are permitted to visit the RHS Chelsea FlowerShow).22-26 May 2007. Where are the Wild Things? On The CAF Giving Garden at The Chelsea Flower Show 2007 www.cafonline.org Lovers of touchy-feely, exuberant planting will adore the Charities AidFoundation’s Giving Garden inspired by ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ the cultchildren’s book by Maurice Sendak. Designer Tiggy Salt has created a dreamscapescene from the book for sponsors Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).CAF aims to create a world in which giving to charity is a recognised part ofeveryday life. Through the garden CAF will be able to reach new audiences ofdonors, people who might never have considered giving, and others who could beusing their giving to make even more of an impact.

The American Farm Bureau Federation will be presenting its Distinguished Service Award to former Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) during the 2021 American Farm Bureau Virtual Convention, Jan. 10-13.AFBF established the Distinguished Service Award in 1928 to honor individuals who have devoted their careers to serving the national interest of American agriculture.Conaway was first elected to represent the 11th Congressional District of Texas in 2004. He served as chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Agriculture from 2015 to 2019 and as ranking member from 2019 to 2021. He also served on the House Armed Services Committee and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as Chairman of the House Committee on Ethics from 2013-2015. He was a deputy Republican whip, a position he held since the 112th Congress. After 16 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Conaway decided not to run for re-election.“The people who work in production agriculture, and the people who work in oil and gas, are some of the most decent, honest, hardworking, patriotic Americans you could ever imagine,” said Conaway. “Going to work on their behalf every day was a real joy.”“Chairman Conaway is a true leader for U.S. agriculture,” said Russell Boening, president of the Texas Farm Bureau. “His success in adding seed cotton back into the farm bill helped cotton growers in Texas and across the nation continue operating during difficult circumstances.”Conaway chaired the U.S. House Agriculture Committee’s General Farm Commodities and Risk Management Subcommittee during the 113th Congress. In addition, as an important lieutenant to then-Chairman Frank Lucas, he played a major role in the passage of the 2014 farm bill, which benefited farmers and ranchers across the entire country.Conaway was also a key force in the passage of the 2018 farm bill, leading a process whereby the concerns of farmers, ranchers and rural America were addressed. He fought to ensure that all commodities were adequately funded, providing a strong safety net for American agriculture at a time when net income had decreased by 52% since 2014.

MexicoAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Organized crimeCorruptionImpunityViolence Organisation News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has alerted the UN and OAS special rapporteurs for freedom of expression to the increasingly alarming problem of Mexican journalists being driven into internal exile by death threats – a problem with disastrous consequences for media freedom in both short and long term. to go further Follow the news on Mexico Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state RSF organized a meeting on this issue with United Nations Special Rapporteur David Kaye and Organization of American States Special Rapporteur Edison Lanza on the last day of the visit they made to Mexico from 27 November to 4 December.This year alone, RSF has provided support in 13 cases* of Mexican journalists who fled their hometowns for safety reasons after being the targets of threats. These victims of forced displacement – several of whom fled with their families – lived in the states of Guerrero, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas, Quintana Roo, Baja California and Michoacán, which are among Mexico’s most violent.Most of these journalists sought refuge in Mexico City and received emergency assistance from the Federal Mechanism for Protecting Human Rights Defenders and Journalists.The Mexican Commission for the Defence and Promotion of Human Rights (CMDPDH) has registered more than 300,000 cases of Mexican citizens (of all professions) who have been forced to move away from their home regions since 2009. The figure is astonishing and there is little prospect of any let-up in 2018, given the current level of violence in Mexico.With at least 11 journalists murdered so far in 2017, Mexico is the world’s second deadliest country for the media. Furthermore, Mexico will hold presidential, parliamentary and state governorship elections in June 2018 and journalists are more likely to be targeted in the run-up to elections (see the UNESCO-RSF Handbook for Journalists during Elections).Time bombForced displacement has many consequences. It has an enormous psychological impact on the victims. As well as feeling cut off, they also suffer from feelings of guilt towards their families and colleagues. And this often leads to a rapid decline in their health and the health of their loved-ones.It takes an economic toll on the victims, who generally have to use their savings or sell property in order to cover their basic needs, which may include paying several rents.It also has an economic cost for the authorities. In the absence of a global policy, the various bodies responsible for handling the problem – the Federal Mechanism, the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE) and the Executive Commission for Attention to Victims (CEAV) – communicate poorly with each other and are hard put to find long-term solutions for the victims. This bureaucracy consumes time and financial resources.Finally, the forced displacement of journalists results in a loss of jobs and in news black holes such as the state Tamaulipas.“After a particularly violent year for the Mexican media, the authorities must urgently draw up a concrete plan of action and a global policy for ending the persecution and threats against journalists and limiting the causes of forced displacement, which has terrible consequences for freedom of expression,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin American bureau.“The victims of forced displacement also need a programme of comprehensive and personalized assistance.” Colombié added.RSF alerted the mexican Congress on this issue. Pending concrete action by the authorities, RSF has three main recommendations for the Mexican government:1. Conduct a comprehensive nationwide diagnosis of the problem and then devise a clear, all-embracing public policy that combines prevention with support for already identified victims.2. By means of better coordination between the Federal Mechanism, FEADLE and CEAV, implement a full assistance programme for victims that includes psychological and financial assistance and help with finding new employment.3. Ensure that the CEAV pays better attention to the specific, individual needs of victims and maintain the special assistance fund for journalists in 2018 – a fund worth 10 million pesos (445,000 euros) created in 2017 – while ensuring greater transparency in its use.Mexico is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World press Freedom Index.

NewsBreaking newsMake abuse a crime from the start – callBy Bernie English – September 18, 2014 846 Facebook Advertisement Previous articleCouncil to debate JobBridge banNext articleEx Limerick councillors get half a million Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years. She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. A LIMERICK group campaigning to have incidents of domestic violence treated as criminal from the outset say more needs to be done to deal with perpetrators and protect victims.The United and Strong group are about to launch a peer support service, having formed the lobby group after encountering each other in various services for victims and survivors of domestic abuse.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “From the very start, domestic violence is not treated the way other forms of violence are,” said Chairperson of the group, Maria Burns.“If someone is outside their house and a man hits them, the gardai are called and they arrest the perpetrator of the assault. If a man hits his partner inside the home, in front of her children and the gardai are called, they will remove the woman and the children from the home and take them to a place of safety. Nothing happens to the perpetrator unless the victim makes a formal complaint”.Ms Burns said the group is “not trying to highlight the fact that domestic abuse happens. People know that. What we want to see is abuse being treated as a criminal act from the outset”.Senior legal sources confirmed to the Limerick Post that the difference between various acts and the laws governing domestic violence lies in the powers of arrest afforded to gardai.“If gardai see an affray on the street, they have powers of arrest there and then. In an accusation of domestic abuse, the victim has to make a complaint before anyone is arrested”.In practice, the United and Strong group says, the most usual course is to see a protection or barring order from the courts, and only if such an order is broken will the law act.“There are guidelines for the gardai on dealing with domestic violence. The problem is that there seems to be no continuity and those guidelines are not being adhered to. I’ve live in other places and to be fair, the gardai in Limerick are very good – it’s much worse elsewhere,” said Ms Burns.The group is composed of volunteers, most of whom have experienced abuse. As part of their mission statement they say they want to “seek justice and progress in order to improve the enforcement of the rights of individuals affected by domestic abuse”.They are not funded and have received help from Mayor Michael Sheehan who has given them use of his office and the Absolute Hotel, which facilitates meetings.“We don;t want funding.

For both of us it’s our first time going to New York so it’s really exciting. It will be great to meet up with everyone again as well,” said Dawn.The service also facilitated the travel plans of public representatives heading out on formal business, among them Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council Shane P. O’Reilly. “It’s going to be a busy few days as I will be attending a range of events in New York and then we are going to Rochester, which my own village of Mullagh is twinned with, and Clinton, New Jersey, which was founded by two brothers from Belturbet.“Some might think Shannon is a long way to go if you’re from Cavan, not least as Dublin is just an hour from where we live, but we are on the motorway very quickly and down here in under three hours. We live in rural Ireland, Shannon is in rural Ireland so it’s great to support it. I would recommend it any day. It’s my first time here and it’s so stress-free it’s unbelievable.”The service was due to recommence this day week after its winter break since January 5th but was brought forward to cater for demand for seats each way for St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Flights will operate daily, except Tuesdays, departing Shannon at 12:20p.m. and arriving at 2:40p.m. New York local-time. The return leg departs at 6:20p.m. local-time, arriving in Shannon at 6a.m.Transatlantic services have made a major contribution to the resurgence at Shannon Airport since it was made independent two years ago. Last year saw a 10% increase in transatlantic passengers as Shannon built on the momentum of 2013.Welcoming the recommencement of the service, Operations Director at Shannon Airport Niall Maloney said, “Aer Lingus has a long legacy of transatlantic services at Shannon and it’s great to see them back this year ahead of schedule on JFK to cater for demand around St. Patrick’s Day. Outside of Ireland there are more people of Irish descent in New York than anywhere else in the world and that creates a huge market for services, particularly across the western half of the island with so many people having emigrated from here in the past.“Shannon is the only airport from Cork right up to the North West with transatlantic services so we play a major role in supporting tourism and industry links with these services. You can see it here today as we have passengers from Waterford, Dublin, Sligo, Galway, May and Cavan. The demand for these services is also growing with the economic recovery both here and the US and, indeed, the success of the Wild Atlantic Way so we are expecting a busy season again and delighted to have the service back.”Aer Lingus Director of Communications Declan Kearney said, “We are happy to recommence services between Shannon and New York in time for the St Patrick’s Day celebrations. We continue to grow our transatlantic business adding extra capacity and a bigger choice of destinations to North America. New connections across the USA allow for seamless transfer options, making Aer Lingus the smart choice.” Email
