Flowers still keen on Spain

first_imgWednesday 8 December 2010 8:49 pm Flowers still keen on Spain Show Comments ▼ US private equity firm JC Flowers said it still wanted to invest in Banca Civica once the Spanish savings bank completes its merger with domestic CajaSol.Interest from Flowers in the deal was seen to have cooled when its founder said he was not interested in investing in the bank until Spain had restored faith in its finances. But Chris Flowers, founder and executive chairman, said yesterday: “We continue to be impressed with Banca Civica’s unique business model. Currently, Banca Civica is in negotiations to merge with CajaSol. When these negotiations are complete, we hope to resume our own discussions with Banca Civica. We remain optimistic about Spain’s fundamentals and believe it offers attractive opportunities for investment.” whatsapp KCS-content Sharecenter_img Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteUndoDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Kirsh ruled out of bid talks with Minerva

first_imgSunday 16 January 2011 9:53 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp LONDON property developer Minerva revealed it is holding preliminary takeover talks with an unnamed potential buyer, which has already propelled its shares upwards and is set to do the same this morning. The identity of the predator remained a mystery yesterday, with Minerva’s advisers remaining tight-lipped about the ongoing talks. However, industry sources ruled out a number of City real estate players including Land Securities and British Land. One property insider said the interested party was likely to be an opportunity fund.Minerva declined to comment. Minerva announced the talks after its shares jumped 11 per cent to 87p on Friday, prompting the Takeover Panel to contact the firm for clarification. Friday’s share price gives the firm a £140m valuation. Minerva’s board stressed in its statement to the stock exchange that the talks might not lead to a formal offer. It is the third time in as many years that the company has been circled by potential buyers, most recently by activist shareholder Nathan Kirsh in 2009. It is understood that Kirsh is not the interested party this time. Kirsh criticised the firm for failing to find a tenant for its Walbrook development on Cannon Street (pictured), which has stood empty since completion in February. BRIAN CASSINGREENHILL & COHelping Minerva field calls from potential bidders is familiar ground for Brian Cassin of Greenhill & Co, who advised the company during its successful defence against Kirsh’s takeover advances in January 2010. Cassin joined Greenhill in 1998, having previously worked for six years with Baring Brothers International in London and New York.Cassin’s recent deals include advising Emerson during its battle to take over Chloride, in which it eventually paid out £997m to fend off rival ABB. He worked closely with Simon Borrows, Greenhill’s chairman of European operations, before Borrows went part-time in April 2010. Cassin then became co-head of European corporate advisory. While advising Minerva, Cassin has worked to deflect several advances from activist shareholder Nathan Kirsh, who attempted to take over Minerva in 2009 and tried to oust the board of directors in mid-2010.

The deal received its last regulatory approval in January.Under the terms of the agreement, GDF Suez, Europe’s second-largest utility, will transfer some assets to International Power. The enlarged company is expected to have annual sales of €84bn, making it the world’s largest utility by sales. GDF Suez’s tie-up with International Power follows the 2008 sale of British Energy to French nuclear power group EDF, showing the appetite of French utilities for Britain.The deal, announced last year after months of on-and-off talks, will open GDF Suez to new markets in Asia and Australia, and enhance the French group’s position in the Middle East.

RIP: The Rt. Rev. Coleman McGehee, 8th Bishop of Michigan

first_imgRIP: The Rt. Rev. Coleman McGehee, 8th Bishop of Michigan Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal Diocese of Michigan] The Rt. Rev. H. Coleman McGehee, retired bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan, has died at the age of 89McGehee served as bishop coadjutor from 1971 to 1973 and as diocesan bishop from 1973 to 1990.He died March 14, after a protracted illness at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Pontiac. The bishop was surrounded by loved ones, keeping vigil by his side, throughout his final days. His peaceful transition was made while his daughter, Cary, was reading spiritual imperatives to himHe is survived by his wife of 67 years, June, their daughters, Lesley and Cary; sons Alexander, C. Harry and Donald; and four grandchildren.Visitation will begin at noon on March 23 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Detroit, with a requiem Eucharist at 2:00 p.m.Coleman McGehee was born in Richmond, Virginia and came to the ordained ministry via engineering, military service and the practice of law. He was at one time deputy attorney general of the Commonwealth of Virginia.An avid golfer, McGehee was swimming laps three times a week and taking other exercise as he had for years until the onset of his final illness in mid-February. He had stopped functioning publicly after the onset of dementia several years ago.After service during World War II as a 2nd lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, he graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1947. He earned a law degree at the University of Richmond in 1949. Eight years later he entered the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary of Virginia, graduating in 1957. Prior to coming to Michigan he was rector of Immanuel-on-the-Hill Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Va., from 1960 to 1971 where he was the pastor to the late President Gerald R. Ford and Betty Ford.Coleman was elected a bishop in May 1971 and took up his new duties in Michigan October of that year. Then 48, he succeeded the Rt. Rev. Richard S. Emrich who had led the Michigan diocese since 1948.His convictions about justice and peace matched his concern that not only the church but society, too, should respect the dignity of every human being.McGehee supported union labor. He offered a liturgy for peace on many a Good Friday at the gates of Williams International in Walled Lake where missiles were then made. He supported the cause of women clergy and in 1977 ordained the first woman priest in the Diocese of Michigan. He welcomed gay and lesbian members into the church and was not hesitant to ordain them.He was one of the founders, with Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Gumbleton and the late Rabbi Richard Hertz, of the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights.The bishop’s conscience led him to support the locked-out Detroit Free Press and Detroit News employees in 1995. Already 72 and retired for five years, he stood with them on the picket line, spoke for them and was willing to go to jail with them.McGehee was a spiritual leader, friend and advocate in the diocese and throughout the church.  His legacy will not be forgotten.

On Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam, right before the Piet Hein tunnel, a growing student population has been livening up the area. Here Studioninedots designed an iconic block with 364 student apartments. Passersby this summer caught glimpses of the first residents enjoying the sunshine on the shared terraces that form the stepped roof. Zeeburgereiland is rapidly developing into an urbanised part of Amsterdam, and the city-wide demand for student housing is addressed here on the 134-metre-long site on IJburglaan. Studioninedots utilised the organisation of the outdoor spaces as a way to facilitate a collective culture and the dynamic use of the building. A major strategy relocated the terrace, which was originally allocated on the quiet but unattractive north side of the building, to the roof.Save this picture!© Peter CuypersBy stepping the block down southwards, this created space for shared terraces, enabled variety in the apartment layouts and formed an iconic urban silhouette. The clever positioning of the stepped terraces enables the building to function as a barrier against traffic noise for the residences behind.Save this picture!© Peter CuypersDouble height glass entrances mark access to the apartments. Complementing the roof terraces is a green zone that lines the front facade, filled with hollyhocks that lean against the brick piers. The terraces of the ground floor apartments open onto here. The dimensions of the piers vary, widening towards the centre of the building, which appears as a triptych. Each with its own rhythmic quality, the different sections together accentuate the overall upturned form: the building smiles.Save this picture!© Peter CuypersSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Peter CuypersOur cities are becoming more compact. In this context Studioninedots sees an increasing need for better collective spaces and public spaces. Its architecture creates characteristic spatial interventions on dense urban sites that function as catalysts for meeting, exchange, connection and activities between people – in this case, between students. Save this picture!© Peter CuypersProject gallerySee allShow lessSingle-Family Home in Rodersdorf / Berrel Berrel Kräutler ArchitektenSelected ProjectsNawamin 24 House / I Like Design StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Class struggle pays

first_imgFigures released by the U.S. Census Bureau on Sept. 13 showed a sharp rise in the median income from 2014 to 2015 and a drop in the poverty rate. The median income is the point at which half of all incomes fall below it and half above.Over the past two weeks literally thousands of articles, analyses and reports have been devoted to examining these figures, their limitations and the sectors of the U.S. population whose situation is better or worse. This is done mainly in light of the upcoming elections.The Democratic-leaning pundits have been careful to point out that while this reveals a significant improvement, real incomes were still a bit below where they were in 2007, when the financial crisis started. Their bourgeois opponents point to all the weaknesses that still exist in the economy and its lackadaisical growth.The general consensus was that this improvement was due to “expanding the social safety net,” according to New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, “to increase purchasing power and sustain demand.” The economy has been sputtering along, but a bit faster.However, something else has been going on over these past three years that all these bourgeois economists and analysts want to discount, minimize and discredit.Millions of people, in thousands of demonstrations and all forms of protest, have been in the streets demanding “$15 an hour and union protections.” Thousands were arrested and hundreds lost their jobs. Their victories were diffuse and sporadic, with many jurisdictions enacting a $15-hour minimum wage — but with a fairly distant goal. For example, in the city and county of Los Angeles, as well as in Mountain View and Emeryville, Calif., legislators approved an increase to $15 — but it will fully phase in only between 2018 and 2021.However, all this struggle in the streets has had an impact beyond the laws that were passed. According to the National Employment Law Project, “at least 23 employers increased their minimum pay to between $14 and $16 per hour.”If you look at a map prepared by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, part of the U.S. Commerce Department, that shows income increases by state, you can see that the highest rate of income growth occurred in California, Oregon and Nevada. These states make up the region the BEA calls the Far West, and the gain there was between 4.8 percent and 6.3 percent, well above the national growth rate of 4.4 percent. The map can be found at Far West is where the Fight for $15 has had its biggest impact and major successes. It also has a high level of unionization. Class struggle for better wages and working conditions does pay.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

California’s Wildfire Insurance Impacting Housing

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. A report by Fox News found wildfires are impacting California’s real estate market as insurers look to back out of fire-prone areas and potential buyers face high costs for plans.The Wall Street Journal reported insurance companies have reduced their wildfire exposure in the past two years after paying more than $24 billion for the state’s wildfire losses in 2017 and 2018. Lauralee Green, co-owner of Z Group Real Estate in Pollock Pines, California, told The Wall Street Journal that she now requires prospective buyers to submit an insurance quote before making an offer. “I’ve had so many deals fall through,” she said, adding she sold about $4.7 million in real estate last year, down from $8.8 million in 2018.Also, home insurers have declined to renew policies for thousands of homeowners across the state and regulators expect more nonrenewals in the coming months.California was home to 16 wildfires last October. Fox News reported last month that state officials added protection for homeowners, preventing insurance companies from dropping them as customers for a year after a disaster-level wildfire burns near their homes. State officials added the rule after the found insurers had dropped fire coverage for more than 350,000 residents following wildfires in 2018. The new protection applies to more than 1 million California homeowners, however, it doesn’t cover homebuyers or owners in areas that didn’t have a wildfire last year. Wildfires in 2008 caused $719 million in damage. That number rose to $1.1 billion in 2015 and the combined damage for fires in 2017 and 2018 was $25.3 billion, according to the California Department of Insurance. CoreLogic reported last year that nearly 9 million acres burned in 2018, with more than 1.8 million being in California. California’s Camp Fire was one of the most destructive in the state’s history, with a total loss of $9.3 billion. In a review of 2018’s fires, CoreLogic examined how California’s most extreme wildfires impacted single-family housing in the state.Tom Jeffery, Principal, Science and Analytics at CoreLogic, noted how recent wildfires stack up against the past.According to Jeffery, there is a concerning trend towards larger and more destructive fires, as well as a rising cost of managing these fires.“The Federal cost of wildfire suppression has gone from $1 billion in 2000 to $2 billion in 2015, and now $3 billion as of 2018 last year,” he said.
