IMF: Iceland is stabilising as debt crisis eases

first_imgSunday 14 November 2010 10:46 pm KCS-content Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ ICELAND’S economy has stabilised further and measures to ensure a restructuring of debt on the crisis-hit island remain vital, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said yesterday.The top three Icelandic banks collapsed in October 2008 and the country needed a bailout led by the IMF.“Iceland’s post-crisis stabilisation is continuing, supported by a steady implementation of programme policies,” the IMF said in a statement after the end of talks on a review of economic measures that accompanied the bailout.Fund mission chief Julie Kozack said while broad agreement had been reached on policy measures that could deliver the goals set in the bailout, more time was needed to assess measures under consideration to restructure household debts.She said an acceleration of corporate and household debt restructuring in an affordable way was vital to the recovery and sustainable growth.The IMF was referring to measures being considered by the government to bring relief to indebted homeowners who have suffered during the downturn. The plight of the homeowners and fears of widescale evictions sparked two demonstrations against the authorities in October. whatsapp Sharecenter_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Scientific Games formulates protection plan for executives

first_img Scientific Games formulates protection plan for executives AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Scientific Games has adopted a Change in Control (CIC) Protection Plan designed to ensure the company’s top executives receive significant financial compensation if they are axed “without good reason” under a new ownership regime.Under the plan, any executives who have their employments terminated without just cause within 18 months of a change of control at the company would be entitled to the pay-outs.The CIC covers president and chief executive Barry Cottle, and executive vice-president, chief financial officer, treasurer and corporate secretary, Michael Eklund, as well as the business’ wider senior leadership team.Also protected are SG Lottery chief executive Patrick McHugh; SG Gaming CEO Matthew Wilson; James Sottile, chief legal officer; and Michael Winterscheidt, senior vice-president and chief accounting officer.The cash severance payments would comprise the sum of the base salary and a severance bonus amount multiplied by two for Cottle and Wilson, and multiplied by one-and-a-half for the other executives.The bonus amount payable would be equivalent of the highest annual incentive compensation paid to the executive in the two most recent fiscal years, but not more than the target bonus for the then-current financial year, unless otherwise specified in the individual’s employment contract.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Zaven Boyrazian | Tuesday, 4th May, 2021 | More on: RMM Why is the Rambler Metals & Mining (RMM) share price surging?center_img Zaven Boyrazian does not own shares in Rambler Metals & Mining.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. A rising RMM share priceRambler is a copper and gold producer that operates within the Baie Verte Peninsula in Canada. In recent years the company has been struggling. And once Covid-19 hit, it actually came close to insolvency. But based on the latest set of published results, it seems that this risk has receded for now.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…The management team successfully completed the sale of its gold circuit as well as other exploration properties and royalties to Maritime Resources for US$2m (all monetary figures are in US dollars). In addition, it was able to perform a major financial restructuring through an oversubscribed share placement that raised a further $10.5m.Using these funds, the firm negotiated new financing agreements and satisfied existing creditors that brought the overall level of debt back under control. After all this, total debt was reduced from $13.8m in 2019 to $3.5m at the end of 2020. Similarly, the cash on the balance sheet rose from $1.9m to $6.2m.And so, with a much stronger financial position, the business not only survived the impact of the pandemic but also came out stronger, in my opinion. Therefore the recent surge in the RMM share price doesn’t surprise me.What’s next for the business?With the looming threat of bankruptcy no longer a primary concern, all focus is being placed on restoring production volumes to pre-pandemic levels. Ming Mine is the firm’s primary asset and its production levels dropped considerably last year.The management team has begun restoring Ming to its full capacity of 1,350 tonnes per day. This process is expected to be completed by December this year at the latest. What’s more, the company is also investing in expanding this production capability to 2,000 tonnes per day by 2022. And at the same time, it’s establishing an ore sorting facility at the Ming Mine site to improve operational efficiency.Needless to say, this sounds very promising. But it’s worth remembering that any delays or further disruptions to its operations could cause significant volatility for the RMM share price. Also, because this is a mining business, it is very susceptible to fluctuating commodity prices. Copper is in high demand at the moment, which has increased its value. But as more mines become operational and the metals shortage nears an end, these increased prices may not last. This could have a negative impact on Rambler’s operating profits.The bottom lineI believe the worst has passed for Rambler. The business appears to be back on track, and if it can increase its production volumes to the forecast level, I think the RMM share price can continue to rise.Having said that, like many small-cap mining companies, it still carries a considerable level of risk. Personally, I’m going to wait and see how it progresses in restoring Ming’s production volumes before adding any shares to my portfolio.

‘Purple’ parish in Minnesota builds paths to compassionate political dialogue

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Director of Music Morristown, NJ ‘Purple’ parish in Minnesota builds paths to compassionate political dialogue The Rev. Devon Anderson, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Excelsior, Minnesota, checks in at the candidate event co-hosted by the church Oct. 16 at the South Shore Community Center in Shorewood. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Shorewood, Minnesota] Within this politically “purple” state, the Rev. Devon Anderson describes her congregation at Trinity Episcopal Church as a “purple parish,” neither red nor blue but with parishioners who bring viewpoints that fall all along the political spectrum.Purple isn’t an easy color for a parish, especially in these increasingly partisan times. Parishioners at the church in Excelsior, Minnesota, where Anderson is rector, had long felt uncomfortable sharing their political views, and some preferred avoiding such topics altogether at church.Today, the parish is embracing its political diversity rather than hiding from it. Several church volunteers proudly sported their Trinity name badges as they helped stage a local candidate event Oct. 16 at a community center in the adjoining city of Shorewood, about five miles north of the convention center in Chaska where the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council is meeting this week.The event, through a partnership with the local chamber of commerce and League of Women Voters branch, was part of Trinity’s effort to turn what could be a liability into an opportunity for promoting open, civil discourse. Anderson sees the congregation as a kind of “incubator” for compassionate dialogue across political divides.“If we have this parish – we care about each other, we celebrate the sacraments together, we’re really focused on building relationships with each other – could we not also use that as a training ground for being out in the community as respectful, kind people?” said Anderson, who is a member of Executive Council.On this Tuesday evening, that plan seemed to be hitting its mark. A roar of conversation filled the South Shore Community Center as dozens of voters met with candidates for office in communities around the Twin Cities’ west suburbs. Signs, buttons, postcards and banners – Tonka Bay mayor, Hennepin County sheriff, Excelsior City Council, Minnesota House of Representatives – decorated all corners of the room, and some candidates placed cookies on the assigned card tables to sweeten their pitches for support.Kelly Morrison, a Trinity Episcopal Church member and state house candidate, talks with a local voter at the Oct. 16 event. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceOne of the candidates, Kelly Morrison, who is running for a state house seat, is also a member of Trinity. She has been inspired by her church’s efforts to encourage people to talk and listen without prejudging each other based on political beliefs.“I’m a proud Democrat, but I don’t want conversations to end before they begin,” Morrison told Episcopal News Service. “We’re all on the same team.”She also thinks Christian teachings, such as loving your neighbor and welcoming the stranger, help inform Christians’ actions as they enter the public sphere. They’re “what all of this should be about,” Morrison said.Fellow Trinity member Bev Lane, who had volunteered as a greeter at the candidate event, shares that support for the congregation’s efforts.“When you know the people, you understand them,” Lane said. “I think that we have to be more civil. We have to get along, even though we have differing opinions.”Gary Veazie, who works part time as facility manager at Trinity, on this occasion was in charge of setting up refreshments in the community center room. He stood watch over the table of snacks and drinks.“I’m running for doughnuts and water,” Veazie joked.Candidates for local election in the west suburbs of the Twin Cities talk with voters Oct. 16 at the community center in Shorewood. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceVeazie started attending worship services at Trinity in 1980, and he had high praise for the congregation’s several rectors over the years. Anderson, too, is known for giving a “top-level sermon,” he said – including sermons that draw connections between the Gospel and current events, “which is a hard line to walk.”One particularly difficult sermon in 2016 helped focus the congregation on its civil discourse work.The presidential election left Anderson in a “panic,” she admitted in her sermon that November, not from her own views on the outcome, but because she wasn’t sure how to unify a congregation with such divergent reactions to Donald Trump being elected president.Some parishioners were cheerful, while others were in shock. “How are we going to continue together?” she thought.She found her answer in the very congregation that seemed so divided. “We need church and Christian community more than ever, because within it we can practice the kind of peace and unity we so desire for our country,” Anderson told her congregation.Minnesota narrowly voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but the state’s counties are a patchwork of blue and red, with the bluest centered around the metro areas of the Twin Cities, Rochester and Duluth. Hennepin County, home to Minneapolis, went solidly Democratic; however, Anderson said, Excelsior and other west suburbs are more politically diverse and lean more conservative than Minneapolis.Trinity Episcopal Church already had begun encouraging parishioners to be more open about their political views and listen to each other respectfully. An early catalyst was Minnesota’s adoption of a law in 2013 legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.As with other political issues, parishioners’ views on gay marriage varied widely, and “the congregation had never had a conversation about it,” Anderson said. Trinity would need to decide whether it would offer same-sex ceremonies, but first it enlisted a consultant from the University of St. Thomas, located in St. Paul, to coach parishioners as part of the school’s Civil Discourse Lecture Series.“We needed to learn how to create a safe space for people to really be able to express how they felt, and so we learned a methodology for doing that,” Anderson said.After strengthening the congregation’s civil discourse skills, the vestry called an all-parish meeting to discuss offering the sacrament of marriage to all people. Parishioners were encouraged to put their newly developed skills to work as they listened to members sharing their views one at a time. The meeting felt like a liturgical experience, Anderson said, as each speech was followed by a moment of silence and hymn singing.The meeting was well attended and lasted several hours, she said, and when the vestry later voted to offer same-sex ceremonies, it was not the divisive decision it otherwise could have been.“It was a real moment for the parish,” Anderson said. “Because it was like, we can actually do this. We can be diverse in our opinions, in our political opinions, and we can still be a really close worshiping community.”Such an approach worked for Trinity, but it need not end there.“I think this kind of thing should be the leading edge of the Episcopal Church,” said Betty Bright, a vestry member who was volunteering at the candidate meet-and-greet event. “For me, it’s about being open to each person’s heart.”The candidate meet-and-greet event Oct. 16 was hosted jointly by Trinity Episcopal Church and the local chamber of commerce and League of Women Voters branch. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceFellow vestry member Christopher Williams also attended the event and was pleased by the turnout. Some Episcopalians may attend worship services and just want to hear the Gospel, without talking about how it may apply to contemporary life, he said, but opening paths of conversation across differences can broaden people’s thinking, within the congregation and beyond.“I think it’s great,” Williams said. “I think it adds a lot to any conversation you’re going to have, with anybody about anything.”A small team of volunteers from Trinity had been working to host candidate forums at the church, but they struggled to get candidates to commit, Anderson said. In the meantime, the volunteers turned their focus toward supporting the meet-and-greet event Oct. 16.Monica Wiant, a vestry member and one of the event volunteers, credited Anderson for pressing the congregation not to shy away from conversations just because they may seem uncomfortable. The all-parish meeting on same-sex ceremonies was a big step, she said.“It was just terrific,” Wiant said. “Because not everybody agreed, but there was a lot of mutual support and listening.”Wiant, who described herself as “proudly liberal,” was among those parishioners shocked and unsettled by the presidential election, and she appreciated Anderson’s invitation to come together as a faith community. “The church needs to be a place where we can bring those emotions and work through it,” Wiant said.Whether Republican or Democrat, they are all Christian.“I think spiritually we have a lot of common ground, regardless of how we vote,” Wiant said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Robinson to the rescue as Gloucester beat the Newport Gwent Dragons

first_imgMonday Oct 12, 2009 Robinson to the rescue as Gloucester beat the Newport Gwent Dragons Gloucester Flyhalf Nicky Robinson came to the rescue for the Kingsholm faithful as he slotted a penalty six minutes from time to help them beat the Newport Gwent Dragons 19-17 in their Heineken Cup opener. The Pool Two contest was closely contested with Robinson kicking 14 points in total, despite it looking like the Dragons were going to record their first Heineken Cup win against English opponents in 11 attempts. First half tries were scored for the Welsh side by James Arlidge and Joe Bearman after Akapusi Qera had scored for Gloucester after a nice break from big England international Lesley Vainikolo. The Dragons led 17-16 late in the game following a second half with no tries, but it was Welshman Robinsons accurate kicking that made the difference as Gloucester took the lead following Luke Charteris being called offside. Dragons boss Paul Turner felt his side had done enough and were in a good position at 14-7 up at half time. “We had done the right things, but then we became too indisciplined and probably lost the territory battle. It was a missed chance. I am disappointed, but we didn’t do enough and the indiscipline killed us. “We got a point, but we missed three tonight. The positive is that we were able to come here and frighten the life out of them,” he said. Gloucester head coach Bryan Redpath was relieved and satisfied with the result. “Our work-rate to get ourselves back in the game was pretty good. I have been very critical during the past two or three weeks, and there does come a time when you are beating the same drum. “We dug in tonight, and we can take some credit for that. We have won our last two games without being pretty.” Time: 02:20 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Japan Approves Partial Trade Agreement with U.S.

first_img Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Dec 4, 2019 Japan Approves Partial Trade Agreement with U.S. Japan’s Upper House of Parliament Wednesday ratified a partial trade agreement with the United States, which will go into effect on January 1, 2020. Ryan LeGrand, President and CEO of the U.S. Grains Council, notes that the  agreement “solidifies trade with our second-largest corn market.”The agreement immediately reduces U.S. corn and sorghum imports for all purposes to a zero-tariff level, reduces the U.S. barley mark up and includes a staged tariff reduction for U.S. ethanol and U.S. corn, barley and sorghum flour. Also, U.S. feed and food corn, corn gluten feed, and DDGS will continue to receive duty-free market access.Meanwhile, the U.S. Meat Export Federation called the agreement “one of the biggest developments in the history of red meat trade.” With tariff rates mirroring those imposed on major competitors, USMEF’s forecast for 2020 is for U.S. beef and pork exports to Japan to reach $2.3 billion and $1.7 billion, respectively. Export volumes are projected to be roughly 360,000 metric tons for beef and 410,000 metric tons for pork.
