Drax, which owns the Drax coal-fired power station in Yorkshire, has settled tax issues linked to its Eurobond financing and other “minor legacy tax issues”, the firm said in a statement. Around £117m of cash that was ring-fenced last year will now be released onto the firm’s balance sheet, along with £63m remaining agreed losses that will be realised over the next few years.The Eurobond debt structure was set up in 1999 during the purchase of the Drax power station from the National Grid. The firm pre-paid interest during its listing in 2005, and expected to get tax relief up to 2015 before HMRC changed the rules on tax deductibility.The firm then wound up the Eurobond structure, crystallising losses of £220m, subject to HMRC confirmation. “We are delighted to have brought these complex matters to a conclusion,” said finance director Tony Quinlan. “We would like to thank HMRC for their professionalism and commitment which has allowed an efficient resolution to this process.“If we receive appropriate regulatory support, this cash will form an integral part of the capital required to deliver our biomass strategy, which in turn will provide the UK with cost effective, reliable and flexible renewable electricity.”Shares in the FTSE 250-listed company bounced 3.1 per cent before settling 1.2 per cent higher.

Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Strategy Slots The GB Gambling Commission (GC) has agreed a deal for independent research sharing specialist Gambling Research Exchange (GREO) to support its new National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms.Under the agreement, GREO will develop a programme of activity to support the strategy’s two key focus areas – prevention and education, and treatment and support. It will be tasked with disseminating research among relevant stakeholders so that it can be applied in policy development, and shared with international partners.The GC unveiled it new strategy in April, with the overall aim of making faster progress on reducing gambling related harms. The initiative will run from 2019 to 2022 and will see the regulator work alongside public health bodies, charities and businesses.“The new role for GREO to support the National Strategy is a perfect example of the collaboration we called for in the Strategy,” GC executive director, Tim Miller, said.“GREO is a well-respected independent research organisation with a wealth of experience in gambling research and dissemination. Ultimately, their expertise, networks and insight will help us and our partners to accelerate progress over the next three years.”Trudy Smit Quosai from GREO added: “We are thrilled to announced our work as part of the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms. It means we will be working with the best thinkers around the world to help tackle the issue and provide independent, evidence-based research to support the strategy’s priorities.”The link-up comes amid a series of responsible gambling announcements in the UK this week.GVC Holdings, bet365, Flutter Entertainment, William Hill and Sky Betting and Gaming followed up plans to increase funding for problem gambling treatment by setting out a plan of action to create a safer gambling environment.However, despite this commitment, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Jeremy Wright has warned the government could introduce a mandatory levy if the gambling sector’s voluntary funding plans do not raise enough cash to support the treatment and prevention of gambling harm.Meanwhile, the House of Lords’ Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry has published a call for evidence to support its inquiry into problem gambling in the UK.In addition, the GambleAware charity has agreed a deal for data and analytics company ViewIt UK to operate and manage the information system for the National Gambling Treatment Service as part of an effort to tackle gambling-related harm.

Brian O’Driscoll Masterclass – Defensive play at the breakdown

By on June 18, 2021

first_imgWednesday Sep 3, 2014 Brian O’Driscoll Masterclass – Defensive play at the breakdown Rugby Tonight have come up with another top quality masterclass video as we get a chance to learn from a legend, with Brian O’Driscoll talking Austin Healey through the best way to defend the breakdown in the midfield, or indeed in any tackle situation.It’s roughly seven minutes that are well worth watching, as the recently retired Ireland and Leinster legend uses his extensive playing experience at the highest level to go through exactly what takes place in various situations, and how to deal with it.“It’s a matter of trying to bend your legs, use the player as leverage to try and get down into a good position, tuck the head, and wait for those impacts to come,” explains O’Driscoll.He’s also quick to point out that referees these days aren’t too happy about players simply placing their hands on the ball to try and get the turnover. You need to actually make an effort to grab it. “Referees a lot of the time now aren’t happy with you just going for the ball and kind of pretending to hold it in. You have to have an effort to try and pull it away from the opposition. Once they see the attacker holding on, they’ll give you a penalty,” he added.When watching, you get the feeling that you could listen to him for hours and never get bored, as with all rugby legends. This is definitely one to share with your friends, kids and coaches.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Coaching Related Articles 27 WEEKS AGO Sam Underhill’s flawless tackle technique… 62 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leinster S&C coach gives some handy… 125 WEEKS AGO The Art of the Offload: Brian O’Driscoll… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Grain Handlers to lock out longshore workers

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgClarence ThomasPhoto: Delores ThomasThis lightly edited article was written for the Port Workers United newsletter in Oakland, Calif. Thomas is a third-generation member of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10, and co-chair of the Million Worker March movement, who actively supported ILWU Local 21 in their battle with the new high-tech grain export terminal in Longview, Wash.As a consequence of the January 2012 negotiated Export Grain Terminal contract for International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 21 in Longview, Wash., dockworkers and the Pacific Northwest Grain Handlers Association negotiations are headed for a showdown. In fact, the Grain Handlers are expected to lock out longshore workers on October 24 at six Northwest grain terminals in Portland, Ore.; Seattle, Tacoma, and Vancouver, Wash.These grain negotiations are setting the stage for the 2014 longshore contract negotiations, which will impact big money issues like pension and welfare.The Northwest grain terminal employers are demanding EGT concessions like the 12-hour shift, bypassing the union hiring hall, ability to fire any longshore worker without cause, and more than 700 other union busting demands.The employers have retained JRG Services Inc., a division of Gettier Security, a replacement workforce and special operations firm. This is not the first time Gettier has been used against ILWU members. In the 2010 Boron, Calif., three-and-a-half-month lockout of more than 500 ILWU Local 30 borate miners, Gettier provided security and transported scabs for the internationally notorious Rio Tinto corporation, a global mining and metals giant.The Grain Handlers include some of the largest agribusinesses in the world, such as Cargill and Louis Dreyfus Commodities Inc. They control and monopolize the world’s food supply chain. They have a global strategy which is driving the grain negotiations in the Pacific Northwest. Their aim is to cut costs and increase production at the expense of hard fought longshore working conditions.Nearly half of the grain in the U.S. expected to be exported — including wheat, corn and soybeans — will be handled by Northwest terminals.To win this struggle, it will take ILWU rank-and-file unity along with an unprecedented alliance such as that which was formed during the ILWU struggle against EGT. That alliance included Occupy, labor, community and grassroots social justice movements.Plans are underway to organize boat pickets on the Columbia and Willamette rivers during the lockout.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

According to the university, isolation is the separation of an individual who is positive for COVID-19 from others who are not sick. Students who test positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms.  Click or tap here to continue reading.Items included in a busy bag given to students in isolation.

On-campus housing applications for fall 2021 to open soon for current students

Marissa enjoys traveling to new places, spending time with friends and finding great places to eat around Fort Worth. + posts Linkedin COVID-19 vaccination site at TCU opens for second weekend ReddIt Student body officer candidates talk campus issues in first-ever live debate Facebook TCU News Now 3/3/2021 Marissa Stacy Twitter printAll students have the option to live on-campus for the 2021-2022 academic year. The on-campus housing application process for current students will begin no later than Feb. 15.Craig Allen, director of Housing and Residence Life, said that housing will look pretty similar to how it has looked in the 2020-2021 school year due to no new residence halls being built.“The only thing that changes is the number of students enrolling,” Allen said. “It feels like housing is changing, but housing isn’t really changing it’s just the number of students who might want housing is changing.”While first-year students and sophomores are both required to live on-campus, the option for juniors and seniors to live on-campus remains available as well. Allen said that about 800 juniors and seniors lived on-campus this year.Daniel Kemmerer, junior economics major, lives in the Tom Brown apartments this year. He said he has enjoyed living on-campus and that for him it made the most sense this year, but has different plans for next year.“Next year I am planning on living off-campus,” Kemmerer said. “Mainly because most of my friends live off-campus and I want to room with them in a house.”Students are currently on-campus for the spring 2021 semester. Allen said the plan is to remain open until the end of the semester. He encouraged students to do their part until May so the campus will not close again as it did in spring 2020.“We have planned for and have contingencies to stay open,” Allen said. “That is goal one, to keep students on-campus.”For the first time since 2007, occupancy has dropped below 100% which Allen contributes to COVID-19. For the spring semester, occupancy is at around 96-97%.Allen believes that this is because some students chose to stay home to complete their classes. However, he is still happy with the amount that returned.The only major change housing has made is adding a guest policy in the residence halls. Only TCU students are currently allowed in the buildings.
