Vedanta seals £5bn buyout of Cairn India

first_imgSunday 15 August 2010 10:49 pm whatsapp KCS-content Share CAIRN ENERGY is this morning poised to announce the sale of a majority stake in its Indian venture to Vedanta Resources, the precious metals miner, for around £5bn.Lawyers were last night scrambling to finalise the paperwork for Vedanta’s purchase of 51 per cent of Cairn India. Cairn is expected to retain an 11 per cent stake, with the rest held by the Indian government and Malaysia’s Petronas. Cairn shareholders are in for a multi-billion pound windfall, most likely through a special dividend. The remainder of the transaction cash will be used to fund Cairn’s drilling project off the coast of Greenland.The deal marks the first foray into energy for Vedanta’s billionaire controller Anil Agarwal. Vedanta specialises in aluminium, copper and zinc extraction but will now gain access to Cairn’s lucrative oil and gas fields in Rajasthan.Shares in the companies, both FTSE 100 constituents, moved in opposite directions on Friday as Cairn investors hoped for a payout and Vedanta holders fretted about its balance sheet. Cairn stock rose 3.4 per cent to 468.3p while Vedanta stock fell 5.9 per cent to £20.53.However, India’s authorities will scrutinise the proposal closely. The government owns a stake through state-controlled Oil and Natural Gas Corp and is irked at Vedanta’s lack of direct experience in the sector, according to local media reports.

Manpower lifted by growing temp recruitment

first_img alison.lock US staffing group Manpower has reported a higher-than-expected quarterly profit before charges, saying demand was “exceptional” in Europe and had increased for technology workers, an area where it recently expanded with a large acquisition.Excluding items, the global staffing services company earned 66 cents per share, 5 cents ahead of Wall Street analyst forecasts.But a large restructuring charge pushed Manpower to a net loss of $350.4m (£217.9m), or $4.29 a share, from a year-earlier profit of $29.1m or 37 cents a share.Sales rose 18 per cent to $5.21bn, slightly ahead of Wall Street forecasts for $5.17bn.Wisconsin-based Manpower, which gets most of its sales and profits outside the United States, said it expected first-quarter earnings of 26 cents to 34 cents a share, compared with estimates of 33 cents.Manpower, which competes with Swiss-based Adecco SA and the Dutch company Randstad, said operating profits more than doubled in France, its biggest market.“Europe performed exceptionally, as did our IT staffing,” Manpower CEO Jeff Joerres said. Exactly a year ago, Manpower announced the $431m acquisition of techonlogy staffing company Comsys IT Partners, a deal that closed in April.Shares of temporary staffing companies like Manpower, TrueBlue, Robert Half International and SFN Group are trading near their best levels since 2007 as hiring of temporary workers has rebounded at a faster clip than in previous economic recoveries.Demand has been helped by an uncertain economy in large markets like the United States and countries in Western Europe, with some analysts calling the current climate a “sweet spot” for providers of temporary workers.Employers, reluctant to commit capital to full-time hiring before an economic recovery gains traction, have taken on contingent workers as a way of staying flexible.

German court rules in favour of operator in gambling losses lawsuit

first_imgOnline casino is set to become legal throughout Germany after the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsverag (GlüNeuRStV) was approved by all 16 federal states. 3rd June 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui Germany’s Euskirchen District Court has decided that online gaming operators have no obligation to reimburse a player for their gaming losses if they played illegal casino games. However, its implementation could be delayed after industry body Deutsche Sportwettenverband (DSWV) and the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) both filed EU state aid complaints related to the proposed tax rates for the vertical. Under a Bundesrat proposal, online slots and poker would be taxed at 5.3% of turnover. Tags: Germany Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany In addition, the court noted the player received an opportunity to win. “In addition, the plaintiff had made his stake voluntarily and in return received a chance to win from the provider. This also means that there is no damage in the legal sense, according to the court.” A statement from Hambach and Hambach – the law firm representing the operator – said:  “Due to the terms and conditions of the provider, the plaintiff knew that he should have found out about the legal situation.  Currently, operators may offer online gambling in Germany through a transitional regime, where online casino is permitted but only under the terms of the new treaty. These terms include restricting slots to a €1 stake limit per spin, with an average spin speed of five seconds. Operators such as LeoVegas and Bet-at-Home said these restrictions have already hit revenue in Q1. However Euskirchen District Court, following the precedent set by Munich and Duisburg regional courts, dismissed the lawsuit. As the player willingly participated in the game, they made themselves liable to prosecution, the court said.

Lions 2017: Why Warren Gatland’s insider knowledge was key

first_img Tall order: Warren Gatland in front of the Remarkables mountain range in Queenstown. Photo: Getty Images Fine voice: The Lions sing during their official welcome in Waitangi. Photo: Getty Images“And then understanding, as a Kiwi, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses in their culture, as a country. There are strengths in New Zealand as a nation, in terms of the isolation and being so far away and galvanising themselves, they are prepared to have a go at anything. But there can be cracks at times as well.“I don’t think the All Blacks are very vulnerable, but last week there were a few comments made that I hadn’t expected. There were signs there we could build on, to have some confidence and self-belief. Often when you play All Blacks teams in New Zealand that’s the biggest challenge – to get 15 players going on the field believing they’re good enough to win.”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREAsked for specifics on what comments had given him hope in the lead-up to that decisive third Test, which was drawn 15-15, Gatland replied:  “Someone mentioned the result and said that if they lost the sun would still come up tomorrow and it wouldn’t be the end of the world and they would learn from that experience. Those are comments that you don’t hear very often coming out of the New Zealand camp.“There were a couple of wee things where you think, ‘We can build from that’. We could create confidence and self-belief because we’d earned that respect from them to make those sort of comments.”Gatland also believes the threats the Lions posed – say their line speed in defence, their kicking game and so on – caused New Zealand to tweak their style of play, when the norm is for them to just focus on their own strengths.“The All Blacks are the masters of being the ones who never worry about an opposition,” said Gatland. “It’s always about themselves. They always pick a team for themselves.Chat show: Steve Hansen and Warren Gatland talk after the third Test. Photo: Getty Images“We felt that tactically we made them play a little bit differently. We think they picked a team to combat some of our strengths and they don’t normally do those types of things. I think that’s a sign of respect for what we had achieved as a team.” “Set a Kiwi to catch a Kiwi.” So said British & Irish Lions manager John Spencer of Warren Gatland after the tourists defied expectations to draw the series with back-to-back world champions New Zealand.Spencer believes the fact that the coach is a New Zealander helped the Lions to understand the Kiwi mindset/culture/psyche/insert other word as you see fit. “You have to be a very shrewd coach to come to New Zealand and achieve what the players achieved,” said Spencer. “I will tell you without doubt I think he’s the best head coach in the world.“You can’t hope to beat the All Blacks unless you understand the people and their culture, their way of life and attitude to rugby. Warren does understand the New Zealand psyche and there were plenty of instances on tour when he has proven that.”Sea of red: Lions fans show their support during the third Test in Auckland. Photo: Getty ImagesEver since he was appointed coach, Gatland recognised the scale of the challenge and has joked that he thought he was on “a hiding to nothing”. Yet it was the challenge that so appealed, coming to the country of his birth and taking on the best team in the world, and it is one that Gatland rose to.“It is one of those positions that you are offered and it’s very difficult to walk away from,” said Gatland. “Having the chance to come to New Zealand, trying to win down here, is the ultimate challenge.“If I wasn’t offered the position, it would have been fine. Once I was offered the job, you can’t walk away from that sort of challenge, particularly someone like myself, when you are competitive. I think if anyone else had been doing it, we might not have drawn the series.”Super surge: Maro Itoje on the charge during the third Test at Eden Park. Photo: Getty ImagesSo why was his insider knowledge as a Kiwi so crucial in the Lions leaving New Zealand with a share of the trophy?“When you go somewhere different, from my experiences having lived in Ireland and England and now Wales, if you have some understanding of the culture it gives you a massive advantage,” he said.“I was lucky enough when I went to Ireland at a young age that I’d done Irish history at university. I had that understanding of the relationship between the North and the South, and to be able to have conversations with people about that… people respect that understanding.“In the past people have come to New Zealand and haven’t been prepared about culturally what you’re facing. So we made sure that we prepared properly in terms of the welcomes and having to sing and stuff. It’s probably the best way. There is already talk of Gatland taking the Lions reins in South Africa in four years’ time, and why shouldn’t there be? He’s undefeated as Lions head coach, guiding the best of Britain and Ireland to their first series win in 16 years in Australia in 2013 and, four years later, drawing a series with the All Blacks that many predicted would end in a 3-0 defeat.He was involved in the 2009 tour to South Africa but Ian McGeechan was in charge so being at the helm in 2021 would make it a hat-trick as Lions head coach – and the prospect of taking on the Springboks could well be one that appeals. Unless, of course, the All Blacks come calling after the 2019 World Cup… LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Coach Warren Gatland’s insight into New Zealand culture played a crucial role in the Lions drawing the series with the back-to-back world champions TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

The project is located within the Northeast limit of Perpignan, giving it the image of a Southern door opening onto the city. The proximity of wide wooded areas and the unobstructed view on the Pyreneans and historic town make this location quite remarkable.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe project is developed on 4 levels thus enabling its inhabitants to enjoy the view on this great environment. It is comprised of 141 housings spread over 4 levels maximum distributed over 5 different buildings.Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosThese buildings focus on optimizing the natural openings on the landscape. The first noticeable breach is quite important: it consists of a path diving a linear building of 145 meters. Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosThis path is the only one to offer a perspective on the Serrat d’en Vaquer roundabout from the accessible roads. This western frontage is the first vision we have of the project coming from the highways and it makes up “the entryway” to the housing complex.    Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosIts objective is to preserve the core island dedicated to individual housing; the protective nature of the project thanks to the R+3 height of this fringe and the frontal aspect of its implantation are nevertheless toned down by the creation of regular splits in the built ensemble. These splits give pleasant proportions to the buildings, giving a progressive visual scale between individual and collective housings and, in keeping with the landscaper’s wishes, offer stretching views through the site, onto the central landscaped areas. Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosOn the Eastern side, in front of the city’s southern freeway, representing a major connecting axis, the build frontage answers to the same objectives but also benefits from its situation on the public landscaped space.   These splits in the buildings constitute a filter between these quality landscaped areas and a green heart implanted on the second line, at the center of the apartment buildings and thus ensuring quality sightings for the freeway users as well as the housing residents.  Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosMost apartments have front and rear views in order to allow the best comfort in terms of ventilation, sun exposure and views on the great landscape.Attached to the presence of individual housings at the heart of the site, the collective buildings are well proportioned to create a progressive visual scale. This objective is achieved by creating vertical splits used for the vertical distributions of the different floors, it is also completed by a system of “lateral sliding” of the volumes, this chessboard pattern which also underlines the different stratas, creates visual effects of filled and empty volumes as well as front and rear patterns that punctuate the facades and avoid the boring and repetitive aspect that one might find on such long built frontage.  Save this picture!Section 5Along this line, the top attic volumes enable to vary the heights and projected shadows of the buildings and roofs. To avoid a negative impact on the heights of the roofs, terrace roofs were created to welcome, hidden by vertical slants, the technical spaces necessary for this project: ventilation chambers and sheaths, solar panels for producing hot water.  Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosThe general principle of volumes and frontage management is applied to all buildings, giving the ensemble an identifiable and marked architectural characteristic, a precious architectural unit even though each group of buildings is different, recognizable and thus permits an easy appropriation by the residents which is essential and distinguishes this project from the negative aspect of the “large building complexes”.Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosIn an esthetic and environmental perspective, the frontages most exposed to the sun will be protected by protruding deep loggias and equipped with sun slates integrated into the facades.Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosOn the night parts of the apartments and when there is a need for more protection from the sun, cold, view and noise, the facades have more limited vertical openings. The night/day distinction on the apartments can be deduced from this difference. These rooms are occulted by accordion-like folding metallic shutters which, once deployed, complete the animation of the frontage and when closed give the sensation of a full volume without any irregularities.Save this picture!© Mathieu DucrosProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Round Up: Classics in BrickArchitecture NewsIn Residence: Xavier CorberoVideosProject locationAddress:Perpignan, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Originally, the client intended to only transform the use of this old single-story wooden house but not to make a major change of the frame.Save this picture!© Texture on textureSave this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!© Texture on textureHowever, it came to the conclusion of building a new house from scratch by concerning some fundamental issues that the old house could have, such as the defect of structural safety. The client asked to have this small house, the size of 35m2 site area (53m2 gross built area) separated into two sections – private space as a study and public space where accommodates the guests.Save this picture!© Texture on textureWe had to seek a new perspective and approach in architectural factors such as layout plan, structure, circulation, finishing materials, and program for this micro-scale house that has the first floor is the largest and it is only about 21m2. You may see our deepest consideration in the final result, like reinforced concrete, exterior insulated finish system, drainpipe built-in the frame, the adjusted first floor lower than the street level, and making the entrance on the first floor and the second floor respectively. And also we had to consider the way of maintaining the house since it is designed as a second home. On the other hand, we could have some room for flexibility and try something different from the primary residence.Save this picture!© Texture on textureThe first floor is designed as a public space that has a kitchen and a dining room for hospitality when necessary. One of the main features of the first floor is allowing people to access with their shoes on. And it gives a possibility to this residential place to become a community platform for the neighborhood. Accordingly, the first floor cannot be defined as a strict private space and it neither can be a completely public space but it could be a common area that connects this house to the neighborhood and to the city.Save this picture!© Texture on textureSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Texture on textureThe second floor – study, the third floor – living room, and the attic – bedroom where people take off their shoes, have been arranged vertically to enhance the aspect of private space. We put the windows, the voids between floors, and the terrace by considering the location of the neighbors to minimize the closed feeling that the small house may have. Save this picture!© Texture on textureThis house was originally planned and designed for a second home, but it still has lots of potential to change the use depends on the lifestyle of the person who lives there. And when the client is on a long trip or decides not to use this house as home anymore, the first floor can be used as a private dining restaurant or shared kitchen space and the rest of the house can be used as Airbnb or can rent for gathering venue.Save this picture!© Texture on textureProject gallerySee allShow lessEnseada do Castelo House / David BastosSelected ProjectsPraia Mansa Apartment / Leandro GarciaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Photographs South Korealast_img read more

This conversion of a former warehouse into a live/work unit for an artist and his family is overlooking Paddington Old Cemetery in London. Five rooms were created inside the open space on the first floor. A continuous array of windows along all four facades define the quality of this space and set the rhythm of the new rooms, maintaining the light and generous feel of the original space.Save this picture!© Antoine EspinasseauSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Antoine EspinasseauThe main living area is arranged around a large central staircase that leads up from the entrance on the ground floor. Towards one side large double doors, continuing the sequence of windows, lead to three bedrooms. Towards the other side, a series of columns define the transition to the living area as well as the bathroom and a larder. Two sliding doors are arranged along this threshold which allows you to close or open these rooms towards the central space.Save this picture!© Antoine EspinasseauSave this picture!© Antoine EspinasseauThe idea was to create a sequence of different sized rooms that, through their immediate relationship and large doors, let light and views across the entire house while allowing private a cosy moments in an otherwise raw and generous warehouse.Save this picture!© Antoine EspinasseauProject gallerySee allShow lessRio House / PAULO MERLINI architectsSelected ProjectsFloating Home / i29Selected Projects Share CopyHouses, Renovation•London, United Kingdom Photographs:  Antoine Espinasseau Lead Architects: Save this picture!© Antoine Espinasseau+ 30Curated by Paula Pintos Share Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/953891/kliburn-warehouse-dyvik-kahlen Clipboard Architects: Dyvik Kahlen Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeDyvik KahlenOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationEnglandLondonOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on December 28, 2020Cite: “Kliburn Warehouse / Dyvik Kahlen” 28 Dec 2020.
