Hands told the court he would never have bid for the record label if he had known all other interested bidders had pulled out. He alleged Wormsley misled him into believing another bidder, private equity group Cerberus, had submitted a 262p per share bid, leading him to up Terra Firma’s offer to 265p per share. “I knew him well. I trusted him. I considered him my closest business colleague,” Hands said of Wormsley. Terra Firma paid £4bn for EMI in 2007. It has since struggled financially and nearly defaulted on debts.

Greencore to fight rival bid

Dublin-based Greencore is considering adding a cash sweetener on top of its all-share merger with Northern, according to people familiar with the companies. Northern’s board has dropped its support for the Greencore deal and instead recommends that shareholders support Boparan’s £342m cash takeover offer, made late on Friday after the Takeover Panel extended its 5pm deadline. Greencore will say in a statement to the market this morning that its board continues to support the Northern merger as a “compelling opportunity” and will make a further announcement in due course. While Northern and Greencore investors are still due to vote on the merger on 31 January, it is likely that the shareholder meetings will be cancelled following Boparan’s intervention.Meanwhile, Northern will send letters to its shareholders this week to stress the benefits of Boparan’s bid, which at 73p per share represents a 61.3 per cent premium on Northern’s closing price before the bid interest was revealed. The bid also has a premium of 52 per cent to the value of Greencore’s all-share bid, which offered Northern Foods shareholders 0.4479 of a Greencore share for each Northern Foods share they owned and was worth 48.2p per share on Friday.Analysts had said Boparan would need to offer a significant premium to improve on the cost synergies promised by Greencore. Boparan struck a deal with Northern pension trustees to pay more than £15m a year to help shrink its £142m pensions deficit. The pensions shortfall had been seen as a stumbling block for rival bidders after Greencore pledged to pay down the deficit. Greencore’s team of bankers – Barclays Capital, Investec, IBI and Goodbody Stockbrokers – are examining funding options for a better merger plan. GREENCORE ADVISERSThe Irish food group hired an army of advisers to work on its merger with Northern, first announced in November, including Barclays Capital, Investec, Slaughter & May and public relations group Powerscourt. Barclays Capital is acting as financial adviser, joint broker and joint sponsor, with Mark Todd and Jon Bathard-Smith heading the team. Joint broker Investec has worked with Greencore for a number of years, with head of investment banking David Currie still heavily involved. Leading the Northern offer team is managing director Chris Baird, who joined from Dresdner Kleinwort in 2009. IBI Corporate Finance and Goodbody Stockbrokers, both based in Ireland, are acting as joint sponsor and joint broker respectively. Magic circle firm Slaughter & May is advising on the legal side, with partners John Panichola and Jonathan Marks leading a six-strong team. Powerscourt has worked with Greencore since 2006, and counts BP, Aer Lingus and Independent News & Media among its clients. The firm was set up by former Sunday Times business editor Rory Godson in 2004. Rothschild, Goldman Sachs and PR agency Hudson Sandler are advising Boparan on its surprising rival bid for Northern Foods.

Moody sees red over Tuilagi tackle on Cueto in 2005

first_imgTuesday Mar 31, 2009 Moody sees red over Tuilagi tackle on Cueto in 2005 In 2005 England hosted Samoa at Twickenham in a match that produced a record score, with the visitors taking a 40-3 hiding, but the game was marred by a few ugly incidents in the second half. ADVERTISEMENTTwenty minutes from time prop Justin Vaa was carded for bringing down the scrum, and then six minutes later Mark Cueto got taken dangerously around the neck by Samoan fly-half Tanner Vili, who was sent from the field.With five minutes left in the game, Cueto was taken out again, this time in the air with a reckless challenge from wing Alesana Tuilagi. Cueto confronted Tuilagi, and a mass brawl ensued, with Lewis Moody running in, unleashing a barrage of punches.Referee Mark Lawrence had little option but to red-card both Tuilagi and Moody.“In hindsight, I shouldn’t have reacted,” Cueto said.Maybe Alesana thought I was going to do something, and he reacted in self-defence. My actions seemed to spark it, but its difficult to stand off and not get involved when fists are flying.Cueto said his reaction could in part be blamed on the fact that the incident occurred so shortly after being clothes-lined by Tanner Vili.ADVERTISEMENT“With the two tackle incidents being so close together, it makes it a lot more difficult. If one had happened in the first minute, and the second had happened in the 80th, then maybe we wouldn’t have had the situation we had,” Cueto added.Samoan coach Michael Jones defended his players, claiming Tuilagi was already committed to making the tackle on Cueto, with it being bad timing with no malice intended.“I think the guys were getting quite frustrated, and they didn’t appreciate one of their boys getting hit from behind, which is what I think started it.”Moody became the first England player to be sent off at Twickenham, and only the fourth to be dismissed in international rugby.ADVERTISEMENTMoody was later suspended for nine weeks at a disciplinary hearing, while Tuilagi received six weeks for his part in the incident.Time: 03:08 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The concept of the design was for a young family with their parents, and they wanted to have a new house of their own: “The open space inside but close space outside”. We agreed with them.Save this picture!© My Anh NguyenThe house has three factors: natural lighting, ventilation and open space inside; on the other hand, the house faces the West that would be very hot in summer day so we just think that the concept needs to be a special idea. One thing we was really impress was that the clients like trees, they want to sleep in a room where they can see green leaves when they wake up each morning. From all these things, we gave them an idea, which we suitable for themSave this picture!© My Anh NguyenThe client did not want their house like thousands of other houses in Vietnam; therefore, we created their house with two main voids. Using the void like a good impression, and the other spaces around it were connected to each other to create the special views. Besides, the staircase and corridors were designed to be not a simple and boring path but a continuous and sequential space which becomes a living space.Save this picture!© My Anh NguyenProject gallerySee allShow lessMountain-View House / SoNo arhitektiSelected ProjectsMcDonald’s Pavilion on Coolsingel / Mei architects and plannersSelected Projects Share 21 House / T -architects “COPY” Save this picture!© My Anh Nguyen+ 19 Share Area:  90 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeT -architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLam Son WardThanh Hoa CityHousesWoodLam Son Ward, Thanh Hoa CityVietnamPublished on June 10, 2015Cite: “21 House / T -architects” 09 Jun 2015.

Casa Zirahuen is the first stage of a two twin house project that create a small dwelling in a residential area in Querétaro’s periphery.

The use of a central patio works as a natural lantern that articulates and ventilates, a witness to the house’s everyday life.Save this picture!© Marcos BetanzosSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Marcos BetanzosThe design of the project is thought to be versatile enough in order to adapt to user’s needs.

Too often the architectural response to flood-prone sites is to distort conventional designs and methods to meet the flood protection requirements, masking the issue at best.  In contrast, the design for this property overlooking a coastal pond and the ocean beyond celebrates the periodically rising water levels. Rather than hiding the flood damage prevention measures, the design takes advantage of them, thereby embracing the duality of the wetland landscape to intertwine nature and built form. Save this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsThe house, pool, decks, and sanitary field are elevated and broken apart to let flood waters flow around and between them, thereby reducing the potentially damaging hydrodynamic pressure of coastal flooding.  Thus the house becomes a series of vertical volumes from which to observe the ocean view, the agrarian landward view, and the dynamic ground plane itself.  Perched safely above, flooding becomes a non-threatening event, a periodic change in the home’s relationship with the ground.  From the glass-enclosed bridges that connect the volumes, one can appreciate the dramatic spaces between the them, whether flooded in wet periods, or interconnected by flows of native plantings in the typical drier periods. Save this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsSave this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsThe composition of the volumes in the landscape is guided by program and the surrounding context.  The orientations of each volume are influenced by the desire for ocean views or sights of the pastoral landscape and respond to the use that occurs within. Programmatically, pulling apart the spaces allowed for maximum privacy as four guest bedrooms are separated from the living areas and master suite. Communal spaces have flexibility to flow to the outdoors and extend onto elevated decks by means of full height sliding glass doors. Save this picture!First Level PlanThe building’s location, straddling the agrarian and coastal landscapes, inspired the articulation of the wood siding.  The board and batten design is reminiscent of nearby vernacular structures while its two-layer composition allows for selective control over its opacity.  At grade level the boards are omitted and the battens form an open screen to let floodwater flow through it per FEMA regulations.  Above, overlapping boards and battens are opaque to mask neighboring houses from view.  At the roof line, the battens are omitted to let light filter between the boards.  The transitions between the varying opacities occur along horizontal datum lines that ring the towers, breaking up the verticality of the facades and referencing tide lines left by fluctuating water levels. Save this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsSave this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsThe language expressed by the exterior siding translates to the design of the interior spaces as well. The horizontal datum lines are visually transcribed onto the interior walls by means of material transitions for interior finishes and wall claddings. Wood clad walls at the first level transition into wainscoting and light painted walls at the upper floors. This visual link expresses the seamless connection between interior and exterior as one travels throughout the house.Save this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsBy creating a homogenous relationship between the architecture and nature, one is constantly reminded of the place in which they reside. Natural elements are invited into the home and are experienced on a daily basis, thus becoming a part of everyday life.Save this picture!© Bates Masi + ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessSooSoo Coffee / LABOTORYSelected ProjectsBienville House / Nathan Fell ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Houses United States Bates Masi Architects, Marders Photographs:  Bates Masi + Architects Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Bates Masi + Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930451/kihthan-house-bates-masi-plus-architects Clipboard ArchDaily 2018 CopyAbout this officeBates Masi + ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSagaponackOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on December 20, 2019Cite: “Kiht’han House / Bates Masi + Architects” 19 Dec 2019.

Racist police violence & the need for socialist revolution

first_img“According to [Karl] Marx, the state [comprised of armed bodies of men and women such as police; prisons; courts, etc.] is an organ of class rule, an organ for the oppression of one class by another; it is the creation of ‘order,’ which legalizes and perpetuates this oppression by moderating the conflict between classes. … The state is, therefore, by no means a power forced on society from without. … “Rather, it is a product of society at a certain stage of development; it is the admission that this society has become entangled in an insoluble contradiction with itself, that it has split into irreconcilable antagonisms which it is powerless to dispel. But in order that these antagonisms, these classes with conflicting economic interests, might not consume themselves and society in fruitless struggle, it became necessary to have a power, seemingly standing above society, that would alleviate the conflict and keep it within the bounds of ‘order’; and this power, arisen out of society but placing itself above it, and alienating itself more and more from it, is the state.” These quotes come from the pamphlet “The State and Revolution: Class Society and the State,” published almost a century ago by Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the first successful socialist revolution in the former Soviet Union. Lenin based much of his writings on the groundbreaking book, “The Origin of the Family, Private Property and State” by Frederick Engels, who collaborated with Karl Marx in writing “The Communist Manifesto.”When it comes to the current epidemic of racist police violence and state terror sweeping the U.S., Lenin’s writing on the state is just as applicable today as when it was written on the eve of the Russian Revolution nearly 100 years ago. Monica Moorehead at the Michael Brown memorial in Ferguson, Mo., August 2014.Police brutality isn’t a new phenomenon inside the U.S. or in any society divided into the haves nots and the haves, the oppressed and the oppressor, workers and bosses. This type of repression comes in many forms, including racial profiling, frame-ups, beatings, torture, mass incarceration and more. But in the current political climate, it has been the killings by the police of young Black and Brown people that have taken center stage — and rightfully so.Resisting police murdersThe Black Lives Matter movement, launched in 2012 via social media by Black women and trans women in response to the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by wannabe cop vigilante George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fla., continues to lead the heroic resistance against police violence with militant shutdowns of malls, traffic and even airports, like in Minneapolis on Dec. 23.  This movement made a global impact with the rebellion in Ferguson, Mo., that erupted in August 2014 with the fatal police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The names of the victims whose lives have been tragically cut short by police violence are mainly unknown. However, some victims, such as Eric Garner, John Crawford III, Laquan McDonald, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray and Sandra Bland, have become household names because of cell phone video recordings revealing what led to their deaths.  It is the case of Tamir Rice, however, the 12-year-old African-American youth, fatally shot in a Cleveland park on Nov. 22, 2014, that has once again made national news. Rice was carrying a toy gun when two white officers shot him mere seconds after they drove up beside him. Within the next four minutes not only didn’t the police provide any medical aid to Rice, who lay on the ground bleeding to death, but they physically attacked Rice’s sister who tried to comfort him, followed by Rice’s older brother and mother. The excuse given by the cops for killing this child? They “feared for their lives.” Over a year later on Dec. 28, a secretive Cuyahoga County grand jury issued no criminal indictments against the cops, one of whom had a longstanding reputation for “a dangerous loss of composure” and being “emotionally unfit” before joining the Cleveland Police Department.  Racism and classThe New York Times published an editorial on Dec. 29, “Cleveland’s Terrible Stain,” stating, “Tamir Rice of Cleveland would be alive today had he been a white 12-year-old playing with a toy gun in just about any middle-class neighborhood in the country on the afternoon of Nov. 22, 2014.“But Tamir, who was shot to death by a white police officer that day, had the misfortune of being black in a poor area of Cleveland, where the police have historically behaved as an occupying force that shoots first and asks questions later. To grow up black and male in such a place is to live a highly circumscribed life, hemmed in by forces that deny your humanity and conspire to kill you.” The police not only behave as an occupying force in the Black community, but ARE an armed occupying force in many U.S. urban areas, very similar to Israeli occupying forces in Gaza and the West Bank. The police killings of Black people reinforce institutionalized racism, rooted in the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. Tamir Rice is the modern day Emmitt Till, the 14-year-old African American lynched 60 years ago in Mississippi.Some Harvard medical scientists are urging that the police killings of Black people be officially deemed a public epidemic — and for good reason. (tinyurl.com/jj6uum7)Police war against Black AmericaAccording to the mappingpoliceviolence.com website, at least 336 Black people were killed by the police in 2015 out of 1,152 killed overall.  Black people are three times more likely to be killed by the police than whites per 1 million people. Thirty-three percent of unarmed Black people were killed compared to 18 percent of unarmed whites.  The website reveals that in 14 U.S. cities only Black people were killed by police, including Baltimore and St. Louis. These statistics are alarming, considering the fact that Black people comprise no more than 13 percent of the general U.S. population.  Also revealed is that in cases involving more than 1,000 killings in 2015, 98 percent of the officers were not charged with a crime.  A large percentage of those killed by the police suffer from mental illnesses. Last July alone, 120 people with some form of disability were killed by cops, including five Black women, most notably Sandra Bland in Texas, as well as two Indigenous women, all in police custody.  This harkens back to Lenin on the role of the state, which is not just about individual cops killing Black people or any person of color with impunity, but about the general role of the state to exert social order. This includes the courts, prisons and physical violence upon oppressed people, who are super-exploited by poverty and low wages; substandard housing, education and medical care; gentrification; and mass incarceration and joblessness disproportionate to the general population. When someone like Tamir Rice is heinously gunned down by police, it is not just the immediate family that is traumatized, but it is the entire community. The clear message with police killings is that any Black person is expendable, especially in the midst of a permanent capitalist economic crisis.  From mass struggle to revolutionUnder capitalism, the predominant form of class rule, the police as a force cannot be reformed because the super-rich class needs this repressive force to protect its profits out of fear of rebellion by the masses against deteriorating conditions.  All the laws and the courts, which include the judges, prosecutors, grand juries and more, exist to protect the police no matter their criminal behavior. The statistics mentioned above confirm this reality. The police are not workers because they are alienated from the rest of society — the majority of whom are workers and oppressed who are forced to sell their labor power in order to survive.  While it is important for the progressive sectors to continue to show the utmost solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement on a daily basis, especially when a police atrocity occurs, it is also the duty of the movement to help generalize the struggle. It is an important development that many young whites, attracted to the Occupy Movement which was repressed several years ago by the police, have joined the ranks of the Black Lives Matter struggle. The movement must agitate for disarming the police, which is part and parcel of the overall demand for community control of the police. It shows a level of understanding that the real aim of the police is not to protect and serve, but to terrorize and oppress the workers and oppressed as a class. And just as the police cannot be reformed, neither can the capitalist system, which plunders the earth for resources, exploits workers’ labor and destroys people’s lives to make profits. The interests of the workers and bosses are on opposite ends of the spectrum, and therefore there can be no compromise or mediation, which is why the state is needed.  As long as capitalism exists, the police will exist, along with other forms of repression. This situation cries out for a socialist revolution that will get rid of the capitalist system root and branch. There is no other way out of this archaic morass in the long run.  Socialism, as an economic system, will allow the workers of all nationalities and skills to produce for the needs of the people, not to make profits for greedy bosses. Under socialism, police will not exist to oppress the masses because the masses will be running society, not the tiny minority of billionaires and millionaires. In socialist Cuba, the police exist to protect the gains of the revolution, not to repress the people.  Under socialism, Black children like Tamir Rice and all children will have their human needs met, from the cradle to the grave, free from violence and want.

RSF condemns harassment of foreign media in China

first_img News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the detainments of journalists working for the Toronto-based Globe and Mail newspaper and Voice of America radio in separate incidents in the past two weeks. They are just the latest examples of harassment of foreign media in China. April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Globe and Mail journalist Nathan VanderKlippe was detained by police in civilian dress on the evening of 23 August while reporting in the autonomous northwestern region of Xinjiang and was held for several hours. The police temporarily seized his computer and examined the files on his camera’s memory card. After being released, he was followed for 200 km, until he reached his hotel.Voice of America reporter Ye Bing and an assistant were detained by plainclothes police on 14 August while outside a court in the northeastern city of Tianjin where human rights defender Wu Gan was being tried behind closed doors. The police held them for four hours, temporarily seized their electronic apparatus and forced them to delete their photos.“It is outrageous that duly accredited journalists are being detained while out reporting, even if only provisionally, just for doing their job,” said Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia desk. “The temporary seizure of their equipment is also clearly designed to get access to their work files, which potentially puts their sources in great danger.” Detainments of this kind are nothing new in China. When a car loaded with cans of gasoline smashed into the entrance to the Forbidden City on 28 October 2013, killing two people and injuring around 40, the police briefly detained BBC and AFP reporters who were trying to cover the incident.One of the last bastions of uncensored news The Chinese authorities often harass foreign reporters, but that does not stop them posing as the victims of their “attacks” when they publish reports contradicting the official propaganda. After recently tightening their grip on the national media and bloggers and reinforcing the “Great Firewall,” the authorities see foreign journalists as the last bastion of uncontrolled news reporting in China.Ursula Gauthier, a French journalist who had been based in Beijing for six years reporting for the French news weekly L’Obs, was expelled in December 2015 after disputing Beijing’s attempt to draw a parallel between France’s counter-terrorism measures and what she called “the ruthless crushing of the Uyghur Muslim minority” in Xinjiang.Before expelling her, the Chinese foreign ministry tried to get her to issue a public apology but she refused to submit to their blackmail.The New York Times, which has been publishing a Chinese-language version online since 2012, has also been the target of harassment and website blocking. New York Times reporter Chris Buckley, who had been based in China since 2000, was expelled in December 2012 as a result of a story about former Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s fortune.In 2012, the authorities refused to renew the visa of Melissa Chan, a US journalist working for Al Jazeera , forcing the Qatari TV news channel to close its Beijing bureau. Globe and Mail Asia correspondent Marc McKinnon was expelled while reporting on Xinjiang in 2009.Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, China is currently holding more than 100 journalists and cyber-journalists.
