Costain makes improved offer for Mouchel

first_img Show Comments ▼ John Dunne whatsapp Share British construction firm Costain has made an improved takeover approach worth around £172 million pounds for struggling business services group Mouchel.The proposal comprises 0.5531 Costain shares and 30 pence in cash for each Mouchel share which, based on Costain’s closing share price of 222.75 pence on Thursday, values each Mouchel share at around 153.2 pence.Earlier this month Mouchel rejected an approach from Costain worth about £148m, saying the offer significantly undervalued the company.“The strategic rationale for a combination has been widely supported and following extensive discussions with both sets of shareholders we have now significantly enhanced our proposal,” said Costain Chairman David Allvey.“Having made our first approach to Mouchel seven weeks ago and as one of a number of options to deliver our strategy, we believe that our revised proposal is attractive to both sets of shareholders and should now encourage Mouchel’s board to engage with us without delay.”Mouchel, whose operations range from highway maintenance to consulting for local authorities, has been hit hard by government cutbacks and has embarked on a strategic review after warning it may need fresh funds if it fails to reach a refinancing deal with its banks.Shares in Mouchel, which have risen by more than 50 per cent in the last month, closed at 113.75 pence on Thursday, valuing the business at around £133m Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayotChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof whatsapp Friday 21 January 2011 2:45 am Costain makes improved offer for Mouchel Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Screenshot: Pat McCaughan[Episcopal News Service] Atlanta Bishop Robert C. Wright, during a June 2 online webinar, said the nation’s eight days of protest and civil unrest are the result “of denying the pain of an entire group of people since 1619” when the first African slaves arrived on America’s shores.His remarks came during “A Cry to God Together: Lament in the Midst of COVID-19,” the third and final webinar in a series about public expressions of collective grief as a path to healing. About 1,300 Episcopalians from across the church participated in the series, hosted by the Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing, in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, Georgia.Executive Director Catherine Meeks said the June 2 webinar intentionally focused on Native and Latino Americans, in general, and the so-called “forgotten” but now deemed essential people in particular: agricultural and sanitation workers, caregivers, cooks and delivery people, whose continued employment makes them vulnerable to contracting COVID-19.“We want to say to them that we don’t have any expendable people in this country. We don’t have any people we can throw away. We’ve got to stop thinking that way,” Meeks said.Wright, a panelist, said lament is both revolutionary and necessary to generate healing. Protests have swept the country and spread worldwide since the May 25 killing of George Floyd, 46, an unarmed black man who died after being pinned to the ground by police with an officer’s knee to his neck in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The police officer, Derek Chauvin, faces a second-degree murder charge and three other officers have been charged with aiding and abetting murder as of June 3.Other panelists included Roxana Chicas, a nurse and postdoctoral fellow at Emory University whose research on cooling interventions has helped protect farmworkers from heat-related illness while working in extreme conditions; the Rev. Brad Hauff, The Episcopal Church’s missioner for indigenous ministries; and the Rev. Isaiah Brokenleg, the church’s staff officer for racial reconciliation.‘They bring us fresh fruit and vegetables’Webinar panelists linked systemic racism and its aftereffects — poverty, unemployment, and lack of access to education and health care — with chronic disease and other conditions that lead to COVID-19 vulnerability.Chicas aims to raise awareness about Georgia’s low-wage agricultural workers who are experiencing a coronavirus outbreak — news she said has been both suppressed and underreported.About 80% of the workers are Latino, and many are undocumented, she said. Their harsh living conditions make social distancing nearly impossible — as many as four to five share a room; communal bathrooms are used by up to 10 people.Undocumented workers have been labeled criminals, she said, referring to the president’s anti-immigration rhetoric. But their contributions have sustained the nation’s food supply during the pandemic. “You can’t pick Vidalia onions through Zoom,” Chicas said. “They are the ones who bring us fresh salads and vegetables.”Employment conditions are worse — workers lack adequate health care benefits and occupational protections, and forego lunch and water breaks during eight- to 12-hour daily shifts, “to try to make enough money to get by” while earning about $15,000 yearly, she said.Now, many have received “hypocritical” government letters saying they are essential workers, she said. “So, if they get stopped by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, they cannot be deported. Before COVID-19, we were in a rush to try to deport everyone out.”She urged webinar participants to consider how their vote in the upcoming November presidential election will impact the larger society, and to think, instead of through a lens of “how much progress we’ve made … through the lens of the most vulnerable.”‘As you lose your culture, you lose your health’Native Americans, particularly those living on tribal lands, have been hard-hit by COVID-19, according to Hauff, an enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Nation, headquartered in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.In Navajoland, for example, as of May 20, there were more than 4,253 reported cases and 146 deaths from the COVID-19 virus.Hauff said the lingering historical effects of “genocide, land theft and slavery,” as well as continued systematic oppression, have placed indigenous people at greater risk for contracting and dying from the coronavirus.“COVID-19 has the possibility of doing extensive damage to our indigenous community. It’s going to kill our elders, and our elders have been the guardians and keepers of our traditions and our spiritual lives and language. If we lose our elders, we will lose those things and that’s all we have left,” he said.Brokenleg agreed. “As you lose your culture, you lose your health — that is true for the American Indian. You lose community, a sense of belonging, it’s a downward spiral. They took away our way of life.”About 22% of the 5.2 million Native Americans live on tribal lands. The overall percentage living below the federal poverty line is 28.2%, more than twice the 12.3% national average. Many are without running water, electricity and telephone service, which they consider luxuries.Poverty, discrimination, substance abuse, and even dietary changes as Native Americans were forced onto reservations have contributed to increases in such chronic health conditions as diabetes, cancer, tuberculosis and heart disease, Brokenleg said. There is a lack of access to adequate health care —about 55% rely on the underfunded Indian Health Service, which meets about 60% of the need.Local governments have even attempted to thwart efforts to establish checkpoints to safeguard residents from the coronavirus, Brokenleg said.“When people sometimes ask us why we can’t just get over it, the answer is, until you heal from generational trauma, the same stuff will keep coming up,” she said.Often, Native Americans are rendered “invisible. People don’t realize we’re there. We get left out of health data, lumped into the ‘other’ category, which is not helpful to anyone.”Brokenleg referred participants to “Learn, Pray Act,” which includes resources for responding to racist violence, compiled by The Episcopal Church’s Department of Reconciliation, Justice and Creation Care and the Office of Government Relations.There are things everyone can do, she added. “Don’t be silent when things come up. Silence only hurts the people who are oppressed. It does not hurt the oppressor. Get out there, let people know you see them, that you support them.”Hauff referred congregations to the Native Land website, to learn about “The Acknowledgement,” a movement in the church to discover, honor and pray for the original indigenous owners of the land.“You can make it part of the prayers of the people, or put it on the church’s webpage or in bulletins or newsletters, essentially saying that the land on which their church is built was once the home of an indigenous person and it was taken away from them.”Acknowledging that history “doesn’t take much to do, but it can be so healing and transforming,” Hauff said.Wright, the Atlanta bishop, called white Americans to advocacy and action. “If you got white privilege, we need it to be channeled in constructive, positive ways to change systems.”– The Rev.

Situated in the old village of ormône, this house was built in 1860, and then altered over the years.It stands in the middle of an area of the village that has tremendous character, and consists of a masonry base of natural stone whose upstream part rises up to form the backbone of the building and whose downstream part is surmounted by a timber structure.Save this picture!BeforeSave this picture!© Thomas JantscherThe timber part is simply raised. The masonry part is altered. This stone spine, which links the whole project together, is extruded in a kind of “chimney” to the east and extends to the north to form an annexe.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherThe rustic simplicity of this building is accentuated by the treatment of the outer walls, which are given unity by a coating of simple render, applied both to stones from which render had been removed so they could be re-pointed in a style similar to traditional “pietra rasa” plasterwork, and also to the new parts constructed in concrete.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherThe large areas of glazing flush with the exterior further accentuate its mineral appearance, emphasising its carefully-smoothed lines, while orienting the spaces towards chosen views: the rhône valley to the east, savièse to the north, the mountains of val d’hérens to the south and the garden to the west.Save this picture!B-B’ Longitudinal SectionIn the northern part, the spaces are structured by two partial floor slabs, which open onto circulation and living spaces and allow visual relationships between the occupants of the different levels, the children on the first floor and their parents in the eaves. The character of the house’s exterior is echoed in its interior by the use of a mineral coating on the walls, and by the use of exposed concrete slabs for the floor.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherIn the southern part, set behind timber walls, the bedrooms are covered with larch panelling, producing a contrast with the rest of the project.Save this picture!A-A’ Transversal SectionThis timeless contrast between mineral and the wooden elements, established when the house was first built, is thus retained and reappropriated, providing consistency with the original structure.Save this picture!© Thomas JantscherProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Bench in the Garden: An Inquiry Into the Scopic History of a BenchArchitecture BooksJ Pavilion in Xiaogan / Total ArchitectureSelected Projects Share “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/871928/reynard-rossi-udry-house-savioz-fabrizzi-architectes Clipboardlast_img read more

HSUS CEO Ends Campaign for Tyson Board of Directors

first_img SHARE SHARE Previous articleEPA Administrator to Leave after State of the Union Next MonthNext articleMarketing Decisions Will Be Critical in 2013 Andy Eubank Tyson Foods has announced Humane Society of the United States CEO Wayne Pacelle has dropped his bid for Tyson’s Board of Directors. Pacelle told Meatingplace Tyson’s dual-class stock structure was a barrier to his election. He says he hoped Tyson would see the value of having someone like him on its board – given the prominence of animal rights issues in today’s society. Tyson has not made a commitment to raising hogs in group housing instead of gestation crates – which is what HSUS is aggressively pushing other companies to do. Tyson Foods Spokesman Worth Sparkman says Tyson supports the right of farmers to choose the best method for raising hogs and also supports the customers’ right to choose the best product specifications for their consumers and businesses. He says Tyson will monitor the supply of hogs born to group-penned sows – and if there’s a sufficient increase over time – Tyson will explore the possibility of using it to meet the needs of customers who want pork from hogs raised in group housing.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News HSUS CEO Ends Campaign for Tyson Board of Directors HSUS CEO Ends Campaign for Tyson Board of Directors By Andy Eubank – Dec 27, 2012 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Mayor Sheahan’s knockout year as Limerick’s first citizen

He told the Limerick Post this week that he was acutely aware at the beginning of his term that “you are only ever borrowing the chain of office”, so he wore it with immense pride and honour throughout his tenure.The Fianna Fail politician from Askeaton said that the most important event he attended over the 12 months was the granting of the Freedom of Limerick to President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins.“He and his wife, Sabina, were most appreciative of the honour and everyone who attended the event in the Milk Market and indeed, those who weren’t present, were most generous with their compliments about the recognition granted to the President from his birthplace,” said Cllr Sheahan.The councillor counted Andy Lee’s knockout homecoming ceremony after returning from Las Vegas last Christmas with the WBO middleweight champion belt as one of the most memorable of his mayoralty.“He was given a rapturous reception by his home city on his return from Las Vegas. I also very much enjoyed meeting the many young successful athletes who visited me at the Council buildings in both Merchant’s Quay and Dooradoyle.”Of the many civic receptions held by Cllr Sheahan one of the most fitting was one to honour the Garda Síochána in acknowledgement of their success in tackling crime in Limerick.“Their efforts have contributed to Limerick now gaining the reputation that it so rightly deserves as a progressive and energetic city and not the unfair epithet that it had in the past been tarnished with. I was delighted to host a special reception for retiring Detective Superintendent Jim Browne who for many years led Limerick’s fight against crime,” Mayor Sheahan explained.The Mayor also recently held a civic reception for the Religious Orders and Congregations in the Diocese of Limerick in recognition of their unselfish contribution to health, education and social services in our communities.Cllr Sheahan made five overseas trips during his year as Mayor. He visited London to meet with staff of the Aisling Project, who he subsequently was able to support through funds raised at the Mayor’s Ball. His second trip was to Santa Clara to attend an international conference of Sister Cities.The Mayor then took a trip to Germany where Limerick County Council had in previous years a very successful twinning relationship with Hohenlohe. His fourth trip was a controversial visit to Calais in France to consider possible partnerships around the area of lace production.Deputy mayor and party colleague Cllr Joe Crowley believed he was more deserving of the trip. Earlier this month he commented, “As I am coming towards the end of my term as deputy mayor, it would be nice to have had some trip away.”Before parking his year as mayor, Cllr Sheahan also visited Boston where he met with the Irish American Mayor Marty Walsh and his team.A new Mayor of Limerick City and County will be elected this Friday afternoon.

Permission being sought for retail development in Donegal Town

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR AudioHomepage BannerNews Pinterest Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Twitter Google+ Planning permission is to be sought for a new €10 million retail-led development for Donegal Town centre.The developer, Railway Road Trading Ltd, is a private Company owned by the McCann family from Belfast.They say the proposal has the potential to provide an injection of confidence to the local economy and have a very positive impact on the business environment in the town and its significant hinterland.The proposed development at Milltown, less than 500 metres from the Diamond, is located on the site occupied by the former picture framing and moulding company owned by the Timoney family.The project’s backers say they are ready to go to planning, and expect to lodge an application with Donegal County Council by the end of September.The development would consist of a supermarket, with other smaller retail units, coffee shops, 200 car-parking spaces and other suitable businesses.If granted planning permission, they say the project could begin construction in spring 2019 with a completion date of summer 2020. Some 250 jobs would be sustained once the development is complete while a further 150 would be created during the 15-month construction phase.As of yet, an anchor tenant has not been confirmed.********************************Statement in full -Planning permission is being sought for a new state-of-the-art retail-led development for Donegal Town centre in the coming months which will cost in excess of €10million to develop.The proposed development at Milltown less than 500 metres from the Diamond, located on the site occupied by the former picture framing and moulding company owned by the Timoney family, is ready to go to planning and an application will be lodged with Donegal County Council by the end of September next.It would consist of approximately 50,000 sq/ft of floor space comprising of a supermarket of 25,000 sq/ft and the remainder of the facility would be tailored for retail units, coffee shops, 200 car-parking spaces and other suitable businesses as appropriate. A spokesperson for developer, Railway Road Trading Ltd, a private Company owned by the McCann family from Belfast, has said he believes the project will provide an injection of confidence to the local economy and have a very positive impact on the business environment in the town and its significant hinterland. The most recent draft local area plan for Donegal Town (2018 – 2024) has identified the land in question as an ‘Opportunity Site’. It is zoned suitable for retail or commercial use. The draft local area plan also cites that “it is an objective of the Council to explore opportunities for the provision of additional public car parking to service the town centre”.If granted planning permission, the project could begin construction in spring 2019 with a completion date of summer 2020 envisaged. Some 250 jobs would be sustained once the development is complete while a further 150 would be created during the 15-month construction phase. The spokesperson for developer stated that while the identity of the anchor tenant for the supermarket hasn’t yet been agreed and would obviously be subject to planning being secured, there will be a strong interest from the leading retail brands given the attractiveness of Donegal Town as a strategic location. He added that the company was very keen to work with the local community to deliver a project which would enhance the town and of which people could be proud. Discussions with the planning department of Donegal County Council to date have been very constructive and helpful.
