Now, the governing authority YEIDA has increased the pressure on the beleaguered infra and real estate group to clear the dues latest by December 31.The YEIDA, at its board meeting, had decided that if the tax dues are not cleared within the stipulated period it might consider the cancellation of the allotment of the Buddha International Circuit land to the Jaypee Group’s holding companies, which have the ownership rights of India’s premium motor racing circuit.Also Read: India’s only Formula 1 track Buddh International Circuit faces liquidation!Times of India, quoting YEIDA CEO Arunveer Singh, has reported that the Jaypee Group had asked for time to clear the tax dues by the end of December. The authority had considered the request for an extension of the payment date with a rider that any failure now would lead to the necessary coercive action, including the cancellation of the 1,000 hectare of land, which also includes the Buddh International Circuit complex.Buddh International Circuit had come into prominence when it hosted India’s first Formula One Grand Prix on 30 October 2011. The prestigious motor sport facility was awarded the 2011 Motorsport Facility of the Year award at the Professional Motorsport World Expo 2011. BIC has also been honoured with the Best Promoter Trophy for the successful conduct of Formula One races in 2011 and 2012 at the FIA prize-giving gala.The motor racing complex had faced the first dispute in as early as 2009 when the Indian Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports had denied JPSK Sports (the property holding company) a permission to remit $36.5 million in licensing fees to Formula One administration headquarters in London. The reason given was the nature of Formula One, considered not to be a sport but rather entertainment, and its perceived lack of impact on the development of sports in the country. Customs fees for imported components including engines and tyres were not waived, and tax exemptions given to other sports were not offered to the organisers. Fees worth $51.3 million, meant to be paid by Jaypee Sports to Formula One World Championship Limited(FOWC), were still pending as of Liberty Media’s acquisition of the Formula One Group in 2016.The government’s expectation of tax revenue meant that Jaypee was prevented from paying its dues to FOWC.The dispute had led to Formula 1 events’ departure from India only after two seasons.In a judgement issued in April 2017, the Supreme Court of India ruled that the circuit constituted a “permanent establishment”, and as such FOWC was liable to pay taxes on any income accrued by it in India, estimated at 40% of business income. It considered royalty payments made by Jaypee to FOWC to be business income as well, subject to tax, which contradicted the original agreement between Jaypee and FOWC that stipulated that any fees would be paid free of taxes.Liberty Media was prepared to settle the due amount in July 2017, setting aside $14.8 million.The circuit is part of the 2,500-acre Jaypee Greens Sports City.Also Read: Time India realises potential of big motorsport events like Formula One Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out Latest Sports NewsSports BusinessNewsSport Cricket WTC Final Day 3 LIVE Score: Day 3 Lunch – Jamieson & Co put New Zealand on top; IND 211/7; Follow Live Updates WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: West Indies bowled out for 149 runs in 1st innings, SA lead by 149 runs –… PSL 2021 Playoffs: Schedule, Timing, LIVE streaming, list of champions; all you need to know Cricket Previous articleHero MotorCorp extends corporate partnership with Tiger WoodsNext articleSports Sponsorship: Indian beer brand BIRA 91 inks global deal with ICC Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

The FTSE 100 is a stock picker’s index, in my view. Over the last 20 years, the index as a whole has risen less than 10%. However, those picking high-quality FTSE 100 shares have been able to do much better.Here, I’m going to discuss one of my top FTSE 100 ‘buy’ ideas for 2021. I think this stock, which has been a member of the lead index since its launch in 1984 (and one of its best performers), has a lot of potential in the year ahead.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…A top FTSE 100 share for 2021The stock I like for 2021 is Reckitt Benckiser (LSE:RB). It’s a leading consumer goods company that owns a world-class portfolio of health and hygiene brands. Its products – which are sold in around 200 countries around the world – are trusted by millions of people globally.The main reason I’m bullish on Reckitt Benckiser is that, as the owner of the Dettol and Lysol brands, it’s a key player in the hygiene space. And hygiene is a theme I expect to remain dominant in 2021 (and beyond).As analysts at Barclays said recently: “There will be demand for places to be clean and also ‘show clean.’” Barclays believes increased focus around hygiene will be long-lasting and transformative for the industry.With Reckitt Benckiser owning two major, well-trusted disinfectant brands, and recently launching a new division to help businesses improve their hygiene, I think the FTSE 100 company is well-placed to grow in the years ahead.Uniquely placedRecent results have shown Reckitt Benckiser has a lot of momentum at the moment. In October, for example, its third-quarter results showed group like-for-like growth of 13.3%, underpinned by continued growth in its leading global disinfectant brands.As a result of this performance, the company advised that 2020 like-for-like net revenue is expected to grow “low double digits”, up from “high-single digits”, previously. “We are uniquely placed to help tackle the challenges the world is facing,” the company said at the time.I’m expecting this momentum to continue into 2021.Insiders have been buyingAside from the hygiene theme, there are two other reasons I like this FTSE 100 stock right now.The first is that, in recent months, top-level insiders have been loading up on the stock. Regulatory filings show that, in November, the CEO and the chairman spent around £750k on stock. This is a statement of confidence from these insiders. Clearly, they see the stock as being undervalued.The second is that the company is relatively recession proof. No matter the state of the economy, people still buy its products. With Covid-19 lingering, I think Reckitt Benckiser can play a valuable defensive role in a portfolio.I’m bullish on this FTSE 100 stockSince August, Reckitt Benckiser shares have underperformed. There are a few reasons why. Firstly, Fundsmith recently announced it has completely sold the stock. Fundsmith’s a £19bn fund and, assuming RB was a 3% position, that means around £570m worth of stock was sold. This would have hit the share price. Secondly, the rising pound has impacted companies that have significant international operations.I think this share price weakness has presented a fantastic buying opportunity. With the FTSE 100 stock now trading on a P/E ratio of about 20 and sporting a dividend yield of nearly 3%, I think the risk-reward proposition here is very attractive.

Who gets credit for removing Confederate flag?

first_imgFinally. The profoundly offensive, pro-slavery Confederate flag no longer flies high in front of the State House grounds in Columbia, the capitol of South Carolina. It was taken down on July 10, 43 years after it was first hoisted in a ceremony “officially” marking the centennial of the start of the U.S. Civil War. In July 2000, a march of more than 50,000, mostly African Americans, demanded that the flag be removed. When state elected officials voted not to remove it, civil rights groups launched a boycott of South Carolina’s tourism industry.The decisive moment that reignited the struggle to finally remove the flag was the horrific massacre of nine African-American Bible Study members at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston on June 17 by Dylan Roof, a white supremacist. One of the nine victims was the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a state senator. Pinckney had demanded justice for Walter Scott, a Black man fatally shot eight times in the back by a white cop in North Charleston on April 4.Roof posted a picture of himself on his website holding a Confederate flag, along with other repulsive racist memorabilia. He targeted this historic, activist church due to its anti-slavery heritage, led by Denmark Vesey, who bought his freedom from slavery in 1799 and was eventually hanged for attempting an armed insurrection against the slavocracy in 1822.The angry response to the Charleston massacre and the role of the Confederate flag were quite swift and remarkable, not only in South Carolina but around the country. Confederate flags were burned everywhere in the North and South, and Confederate monuments were defaced by Black and white activists, including those involved in the Black Lives Matter movement fighting racist police terror.Once Gov. Nikki Haley signed the bill to take down the flag, an official ceremony was held to mark the occasion. The mainstream media were there en masse. Thousands of people, mainly African American, attended the ceremony. Family members of the nine massacred by Roof were there. Many people cried tears of joy and relief, understandably so after having to endure so many decades of seeing a flag glorifying a barbaric system that forced their enslaved ancestors to suffer under whips and chains.But many African Americans understand all too well that the removal of the Confederate flag and other related symbols does not signify the end of white supremacy. There still exists the legacy of slavery today in the form of police brutality, low wages, lack of health care, the school-to-prison pipeline, the current rash of Black churches being torched and dire poverty in disproportionate numbers.Why the ceremony?Other African Americans, including this writer, asked: Why was a flag glorifying white supremacy given such pomp and circumstance in a ceremony that showed reverence to it? Why was a military honor guard necessary, with only a 21-gun salute missing? Once the flag was meticulously folded, it was sent to the Confederate Relic Room and Military Museum near the Capitol.As African-American CNN correspondent and New York Times op-ed writer Charles Blow commented angrily after the ceremony, they could have just taken down the flag in a low-key manner, given everything it represents. This media event turned out to be a photo-op for the governor, who fought for many years against taking down the flag, along with other white politicians.What shouldn’t get lost is that it was the massive struggle from below, led by the Black community, that forced the removal of the flag. The most dramatic example of this struggle was a young African-American woman activist from North Carolina, Bree Newsome. With the assistance of Black and white comrades, in an act of heroic defiance, Newsome scaled the flagpole on the State House grounds on July 4 and took down the Confederate flag. She and James Tyson, who assisted her from the ground, were arrested. Newsome is facing at least three years in jail, if convicted. More than $125,000 has already been raised for her legal defense. Activists are demanding that ALL charges be dropped against her.Bree Newsome and others who have been in the forefront of fighting white supremacy should be given the credit for bringing down the flag, not opportunist politicians like Gov. Haley and her ilk. There should have been a ceremony honoring Bree Newsome and others like her, who didn’t wait for the politicians to do what should have been done more than 40 years ago.Moorehead was born under segregation in Alabama and refused to play the pro-slavery anthem “Dixie” in her high school band in Hampton, Va., during the late 1960s.

What Will More Soybeans in 2018 Mean to the Market?

first_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Dec 15, 2017 Previous articleCommodity Organizations Support Science-Based Trade RegulationsNext articleMartin’s Winter Forecast Cold in January and Snowy in February Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News What Will More Soybeans in 2018 Mean to the Market? SHARE What Will More Soybeans in 2018 Mean to the Market?Bill GentryAs HAT has been reporting this week from the farm show, the trend for 2018 is more soybean acres and fewer corn acres. What market impact will that have? Bill Gentry, with RMC, heard weekly on HAT, told me that last year many growers talked about switching to soybeans, but, in the end, did not. This year the switch to soybeans is real, “This year farmers are looking at tighter sense of reality. The cost of money is getting higher and the price of inputs have not come down as much as we had hoped. The cost of putting out a corn crop is quite high this year, so the chances of greater soybean acres is much higher.”Gentry says much of the increase in soybean acres will come from fringe areas, “Areas like Kentucky, North Dakota, and South Dakota will be among the first to make the switch to soybeans.” He believes that 2018 will be the year we see a major shift to soybeans. This was supported by comments made to HAT by farmers and seed companies at the farm show.An increase in soybean acreage will put pressure on the market, but Gentry says, for the most part, soy prices will remain strong, “Anticipate lower soybean prices going forward, but selling $10 soybeans is an odds on favorite and represents a profitable crop. Corn prices right now are not an incentive.”Gentry sees $10 soybeans and $3.95 corn ad likely targets for 2018, “We had the chance to see corn at $3.95 several times this year; and most did not do it, but now wish they had. Don’t be pie in the sky, but set realistic targets.” He feel $10 soybeans and $3.95 corn are reasonable and possible. What Will More Soybeans in 2018 Mean to the Market?last_img read more

The Big 12 has talented guys, but these are some of the top players in the nation.”Bane also received some advice from Naismith Hall of Fame Coach John Calipari, who made the selections and the cuts for the team that will compete at the 2017 World Cup in Cairo, Egypt.“Coach Cal was telling me that I was playing great and he loved my game and loved the way I play,” said Bane. “That was a confidence booster for me. Everyone here is really good.

By being selected to the training camp, I proved that I belong.”Bane said the experience also showed him how far he had come.“Just over a year ago I was talking to NAIA and (NCAA) DII schools,” Bane said. “It’s a testimony for me to be at this level and show the passion I have for the game.”Bane chose TCU, instead of a DII school, in May of last year, just a few months before the start of his freshman year in Fort Worth.  While in high school, Bane scored 30 points per game, which was the second-best average in the state of Indiana and led Seton Catholic to a section championship.This past season with the Horned Frogs, Bane played in all 39 games, while starting in 13.

Journalist murdered while receiving government protection

first_img RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Organisation ColombiaAmericas ColombiaAmericas News Follow the news on Colombia October 21, 2020 Find out more Reportscenter_img April 27, 2021 Find out more March 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist murdered while receiving government protection May 13, 2021 Find out more The murder of journalist Luis Eduardo Alfonso while he was supposedly receiving government protection on 18 March in the eastern city of Arauca is the subject of an energetic joint condemnation by the Bogotá-based Press Freedom Foundation (FLIP), the Peruvian-based Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and Reporters Without Borders. The three organisations urged President Álvaro Uribe Vélez and interior and justice minister Fernando Londoño Hoyos, who heads the Journalists’ Protection Programme, to ensure that journalists who are meant to benefit from this programme are effectively protected.”Luis Eduardo Alfonso’s murder represents a failure for this programme, and we therefore call for a prompt and thorough review of the way it is run,” the three organisations said. “The Colombian authorities have a duty to ensure that journalists are safe so that society’s right to be informed is respected.”The three organisations also called on director of public prosecutions Luis Camilo Osorio to speed up investigations into attacks against the press and urged attorney general Edgardo Maya to ensure that every effort is made to identify and punish any negligence on the part of the officials who were in charge of protecting Alfonso.A joint fact-finding mission by Reporters Without Borders, FLIP, IPYS, the Antonio Nariño Project and the rapid reaction unit of the Inter-American Press Association (IAPA) at the end of 2002 had highlighted the vulnerability of journalists in Arauca department and the inadequate response of the government agencies tasked with protecting their work, as required by article 72 of the constitution. In a report entitled “Arauca: news in danger,” this joint mission had warned that journalists in Arauca lacked the basic security measures for covering the armed conflict. Since its publication, guerrilla groups in Arauca department have kidnapped seven journalists, two of them working for foreign media.Alfonso’s work as a journalist, and his deathAged 33, Alfonso was gunned down at the entrance to radio Meridiano 70 in the city of Arauca at 4:40 a.m. on 18 March. According to testimonies obtained by FLIP and IPYS, two men on a motorcycle fired three shots at Alfonso as he was waiting for a security guard to open the radio station’s door. His body was found at some distance from a diary he had been carrying on his person, suggesting that he had begun to run away from his assailants. Some sources claimed to have heard an argument before the shots.Alfonso was the joint editor of the news programme “Actualidad Informativa” which was broadcast from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from noon to 2 p.m. He was also a correspondent for the daily El Tiempo and acted as a press consultant for congressman Adalberto Jaimes.According to Miguel Ángel Rojas, the news programme’s other editor, Alfonso specialised in covering public order and municipal government irregularities. Station manager Mabel Varela had warned him several times to be careful because of the temerity of his allegations, especially as his name appeared on several lists of persons threatened by armed groups operating in the area.Alfonso had replaced Efraín Varela, who was gunned down on 28 June 2002 in a killing blamed on a paramilitary group. Varela and Alfonso were first threatened on 9 September 2001 in an e-mail message in which the paramilitary United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC) warned them that the AUC’s arrival in the region meant that they had become “military targets.” On 2 July 2002, four days after Varela’s murder, Alfonso and three other journalist fled the region fearing that an attack against them was imminent.On 4 July, he wrote to the interior ministry’s human rights department reporting the danger to which he was exposed. The same day, he also filed a complaint with the public prosecutor’s office in Bogotá detailing the reasons he feared for his life, especially the murder of Varela, with whom he had worked since October 2000.The Administrative Department for Security (DAS) carried out an assessment on 26 August to evaluate the degree of risk he was running in Bogotá, and concluded that the level of risk was low.On 25 September, Alfonso’s case was examined by the journalists’ Risks Assessment and Regulation Committee (CRER), a body made up of various press freedom NGOs that is headed by the interior ministry. In view of the seriousness of the facts reported by Alfonso, the committee asked the police for a new assessment of the security in the Arauca region. According to the minutes of the meeting, the committee requested that “the authorities be notified of his presence in Arauca in order to give him the necessary protection.”Alfonso’s case came before the CRER again on 26 October. This time, the committee decided to “ask the National Police to verify that he was still benefiting from security measures – police patrols.” This request was repeated on 11 December when a second assessment put the level of risk at medium-low: “It was recommended that the police should again be asked to give him periodic escorting.”When the FLIP and IPYS spoke with the chief of police in Arauca, Col. Luis Alcides Morales, immediately after Alfonso’s death, he said he was aware of Alfonso’s risk situation “just like that of about 300 other persons who are threatened in Aracua” and that the police could not “give each one of them an escort.”Three days before his death, Alfonso told the IPYS that the protection he had received had been limited to occasional visits by police patrols which were now suspended. Meanwhile, the complaint Alfonso filed with the public prosecutor’s office in Bogotá, which was given case number 635977, was still at the preliminary stage of investigation along with 35 other threats against journalists, an IPYS study established. Some of these cases have been in the preliminary stage of investigation since 1999.The report “Arauca: news in danger” is available at the following websites: www.rsf.org www.flip.org.cowww.ipyspe.org.pewww.fnpi.org RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News to go further News RSF_en last_img read more
