Takeover Panel prepares Code review response

first_img Show Comments ▼ Share A PRIVATE put-up-or-shut-up deadline is the most likely significant proposal to come out of the consultation on proposed changes to the Takeover Code, according to M&A experts.The Takeover Panel’s response to the consultation – sparked by controversy over Kraft’s takeover of Cadbury earlier this year – is due in the next couple of weeks, while a government review into the code is also underway. They aim to examine whether it is too easy for foreign companies to snap up British firms under the UK’s regime, currently the most open in the world.However, the consensus at a MergerMarket briefing event yesterday – where speakers included ex-Cadbury chairman Roger Carr, Slaughter & May partner Stephen Cooke, Herbert Smith partner David Paterson and Morgan Stanley managing director Suniti Chauhan – concluded some suggestions put forward would be either too difficult to implement or verging on protectionism.They include increasing the acceptance threshold, disenfranchising shares held by short-term investors, and allowing state intervention.More likely would be a private put-up-or-shut-up deadline before the bid is made public, or a shortening of the takeover period.

He’s the best leader this country has ever had.” Rugby’s Greatest: Sean Fitzpatrick New Zealand Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide All Black Sean Fitzpatrick epitomised the rugged hardness… Rugby’s Greatest: Dan Carter Legend: McCaw was nominated for World Player of the Year eight times, winning on three occasions center_img Rugby’s Greatest: Sean Fitzpatrick A three-time World Rugby Player of the Year, McCaw followed that by lifting the Webb Ellis Cup again in his final match, the defeat of Australia at RWC 2015.McCaw‘s win percentage across his Test career was 89%. In the same time span for NZ matches he missed, that figure dropped to 68%. He lost just twice in 61 Tests on home soil and his 37 appearances against Australia remains a record for a player against a single opponent.His accomplishments haven’t been the sole preserve of the sports field for he has made a habit of excelling at everything he tries. He once scored 99.4% in a maths exam at Otago Boys High School and other activities include playing the bagpipes and piloting gliders – flying a wave at 20,000 feet is one of his greatest pleasures.For a player who soared above the rest, it’s only fitting that he now flies helicopters for a living in his capacity as an owner/director of Christchurch Helicopters.

Encouraged by an uncle whilst waiting for food to arrive in a McDonald’s, the teenage McCaw wrote down a list of rugby goals on a napkin. He was to achieve them all, including becoming an All Black three years ahead of schedule in 2001.It’s strange now to think that his debut in Dublin, aged 20, on an autumn tour caused a furore because McCaw had only played 17 first-class games at the time. The young openside was named Man of the Match that day and went on to break a host of Test records: the most capped player (148), most caps as captain (110) and most Test tries for a flanker (27).Of the All Blacks‘ 416 Test victories from 1903 until the time of his retirement in 2015, McCaw was on the field for 131 (32%) of them.Lockdown training: McCaw and his wife Gemma in their backyard in Christchurch this month (Getty)It’s impossible to overstate McCaw’s influence on the past decade and more. An arch turnover merchant with the knack of staying on the right side of referees, he also raised the bar in terms of tackle rate, clearing rucks and carrying ball.His endurance levels were remarkable and his refusal to yield to a foot fracture at RWC 2011 – sustained before the knockout stage even began – was heroic.

A narrow site high up on a precipice overlooks the inner Stockholm archipelago to the south. It meets a dense row of pine trees to the west and a softer grove of deciduous trees to the east. One enters the site from the north, where a generous staircase mediates the initial steep south-facing slope. The stairs follow a concrete wall that forms the spine of the structure, and lead the visitor downwards between the concrete wall on the one side and a wooden volume on the other. The staircase leaves the visitor at a gap in the concrete wall, providing a glimpse of the garden on the other side. The promenade continues along the closed wall, towards the view and the water, now flanked to the west by the row of pine trees. A second opening in the wall presents the entrance to the house and extends a passage through and across it, into the garden.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanSave this picture!Site SectionSave this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanInside the house, the concrete wall winds its way further down the narrow site towards the water, and forms itself into bathrooms, storage space and a fireplace. Gathered around this concrete spine, wooden volumes hover just above the ground. They reach out into the garden, pushing the interior spaces into the cultivated landscape and creating exterior spaces protected from the wind. The interior space of each wooden room reaches upwards out through a skylight. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanProject gallerySee allShow lessReflections on Architecture, Society and Politics: Social and Cultural Tectonics in …Architecture BooksPublic Pavilion of New Zoological Park La Garenne / LOCALARCHITECTURESelected Projects Share ArchDaily Ornberget – Spine/Precipice / Petra Gipp ArkitekturSave this projectSaveOrnberget – Spine/Precipice / Petra Gipp Arkitektur “COPY” Save this picture!© Åke E:son Lindman+ 14 Sharelast_img read more

RSF round-up: these figures are alarming

first_img Organisation Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ViolenceImprisonedHostagesDisappearances Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is releasing its annual round-up of violence and abuses against journalists throughout the world. A total of 65 journalists were killed in 2017, 326 are currently in prison, and 54 are held hostage. RSF_en Читать по-русски / Read in RussianThe 65 journalists who were killed were either fatally injured in the course of their work (for The 2017 annual round-upRead the round-upexample, in an artillery bombardment) or were murdered because their reporting angered someone. The murdered reporters were the majority – 60% of the total figure.Although these figures are alarming, 2017 has been the least deadly year for professional journalists (50 killed) in 14 years. Journalists are of course fleeing countries such as Syria, Yemen and Libya that have become too dangerous, but RSF has also observed a growing awareness of the need to protect journalists. The UN has passed several resolutions on the safety of journalists since 2006 and many news organizations have adopted safety procedures.The fall does not apply to deaths of women journalists, which have doubled. Ten have been killed in 2017, as against five in 2016. Most of these victims were experienced and combative investigative reporters. Despite threats, they continued to investigate and expose cases of corruption. The victims include Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta, Gauri Lankesh in India and Miroslava Breach Velducea in Mexico. In another noteworthy trend in 2017, some countries that are not at war have become almost as dangerous for journalists as war zones: 46% of the deaths occurred in countries where no overt war is taking place, as against 30% in 2016. There were almost as many deaths (11) in Mexico as in Syria, which was the deadliest country for journalists in 2017, with 12 killed.”Investigative journalists working on major stories such as corruption and environmental scandals play a fundamental watchdog role and have become targets for those who are angered by their reporting,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “This alarming situation underlines the need to provide journalists with more protection at a time when both the challenges of news reporting and the dangers are becoming increasingly internationalized.”Like the death toll, the number of journalists in detention has also fallen. The total of 326 journalists in prison on 1 December 2017 was 6% fewer than on the same date in 2016. Despite the overall downward trend, there is an unusually high number of detained journalists in certain countries, such as Russia and Morocco, that did not previously number among notable jailers of journalists. Nonetheless, around half of the total number of imprisoned journalists are being held in just five countries. China and Turkey are still the world’s two biggest prisons for journalists. They are followed by Syria, Iran, and Vietnam.Finally, 54 journalists are currently held by armed non-state groups such as Islamic State and the Houthis in Yemen. Almost three quarters of these hostages come from the ranks of local journalists, who are usually paid little and often have to take enormous risks. The foreign journalists currently held hostage were all kidnapped in Syria but little is known about their present location.See the full round-up here* These figures include professional journalists, non-professional journalists and media workers.
