The bid leaves Wellstream’s directors in line for a £22m windfall.Wellstream’s directors own 2.8 per cent of the company’s shares, which GE will buy at a 29.1 per cent premium to the closing price before the news of bid interest. Chairman John Kennedy stands to gain the most, making £18.4m from his 2.3 per cent stake. Wellstream declined to comment on whether the board members will remain with the company once it is absorbed into GE’s Italy-based oil and gas division.GE will take over Wellstream’s manufacturing plants in both Newcastle and Niteroi in Brazil. Wellstream said its advisers, Credit Suisse and Rothschild, believe the deal is fair, and has recommended that shareholders accept the takeover.“[T]he logic and desire of the GE bid seems greater than the desire or financial resources of other potential bidders, with the possible exception of National Oilwell Varco,” said Keith Morris of Evolution Securities.

first_imgThursday 31 March 2011 8:43 pm Denmark could teach Ireland a lesson whatsapp SO Ireland’s banks need another €24bn if they are to become strong enough to withstand another shock. It is a fiscal catastrophe of immense proportions to which the European establishment doesn’t seem to have much of an answer, at least not right now. But if you want to see how to really deal with troubled banks, don’t waste your time getting to grips with the Irish fiasco – go to Denmark, which has emerged as a (relative) oasis of common sense in a world that has largely taken leave of its senses. The authorities there have done the sensible thing: rather than assuming that a bank’s bondholders are sacred and should always be bailed out, for fear of frightening the horses, they imposed a 41 per cent haircut on the unsecured senior bonds of Amagerbanken, a regional lender. That bank had made stupid investments and failed in February. Rightly, it wasn’t just the shareholders who paid the price – it was also the bondholders, who lost a large chunk of their investments. As a result, Moody’s cut its credit ratings on a range of Denmark-based lenders, which means much of the sector will have to pay higher interest rates to borrow – but such is life. It is right that an increased rate of default be priced in: it is not the state’s role to endlessly bail out the financial system. The Danish authorities have emerged as key proponents of this more rational approach and have even written to the European authorities, urging them to be harsher on senior bondholders. Debt write-offs must be conducted in a calm and controlled manner. We can’t go overnight from a position where all financial debt is guaranteed by the state to one where none is. But as a first step smaller, non-systemic countries such as Portugal, as well as smaller financial institutions everywhere, shouldn’t be bailed out at all. As a second step, special bankruptcy and resolution schemes must be introduced for the largest institutions. These would allow a controlled wind-down of bust banks: they could be dismantled without endangering the economy. Traditional bankruptcy regimes are fine for most firms but not for systemically important ones such as giant universal banks; utilities (including nuclear power plants) and large airports which are already governed by special rules. Speaking earlier this week, Bob Diamond, Barclays’ boss, said that his own firm’s living will –?and hence ability to be wound down in an orderly fashion in the event of failure –?is nearing completion. This is excellent news: most commentators don’t realise just how far down that road many big banks have already moved, in Europe as well as the US. But there is one big danger facing the financial system, and that is the regulatory requirement for banks and insurance firms to own sovereign debt. Fortunately, the UK government remains solvent, unlike Portugal. But the fact that UK banks and building societies bought £29.6bn worth of gilts between November and February, equivalent to 84 per cent of net gilt issuance, is unhealthy. Banks are quietly delivering the QE2 stimulus sought by some. That may be fine in the case of the UK, where the risk of default is low – but the fact that European financial companies have been encouraged or forced to hold vast amounts of dodgy local sovereign debt could destroy other European economies. Bail-outs must end – but so should stupid regulations that pretend that nations can never go bust.

first_img Taking the chair: Eddie Jones will be working for his fourth different national team (Pic: AFP/Getty) Enjoying the ride: Life will sure be interesting for England with Eddie Jones at the helm (Pic: Getty) What are we to make of England’s first foreign head coach? Rugby World interviewed the chirpy Australian last year when his sights were set on making an impact with Japan at the recent World Cup – and we all know how well that turned out. Now the RFU are hoping he can work his magic on the England team. Here’s what Eddie Jones had to say on his life in rugby…I grew up playing rugby with the Ella brothers. We played league at primary school and then our high school started a rugby side. I was a flanker and then a fly-half before ending up as hooker of the first XV in my final year. We didn’t kick, we just ran it.The big difference back then was in training. In union it was all about the set-piece. In league it was about skill and tackling, and players could put what they learnt in the 13-man game to good use in union. Playing league was one reason why there were so many good players in that era.Mark Ella is the best player Australia have ever produced. He didn’t just read the game well, he was incredibly tough. He played hooker when we were at school and he developed this attitude that if the opposition had the ball he wanted it. I remember him making six consecutive tackles. He simply wanted to win, to tackle and to have the ball.I was too small to ever make it as a player. I was only 80kg (12st 8lb) so while I was a good club player, playing more than 150 times for Randwick, I didn’t play that many games for New South Wales.Under scrutiny: Jones’s belief in traditional No 7s put skipper Chris Robshaw’s place in doubt (Pic: Getty)I finished my playing career at Leicester. I only played three or four first-grade games alongside the likes of Graham Rowntree and Dean Richards in 1991, but it was a good cultural experience. I remember taking a quick lineout once and having one of the props come up and tell me: “We don’t do that here.”My interest in working overseas led me to Japan. I coached Randwick’s reserve grade in 1994 while a teacher, a job that included a number of trips to Ho Chi Minh City to set up Vietnam’s first international school. My wife told me that if I wasn’t going to get paid for coaching I should stop. Fortunately, rugby went professional the next year and I went to Japan to do two summer camps with Tokai University and got paid. It was heaven.My first stint with the Japan national team was in 1996. Glen Ella was the backs coach and head coach Iwao Yamamoto asked him if he knew anyone who could take the forwards. I was then asked to coach Suntory, but with Rod Macqueen leaving the Brumbies I returned to Canberra in 1997 before taking over the Wallabies in 2001.The 2003 World Cup was amazing. That’s despite the fact we lost the final. Coaching the home side in a World Cup is second to none. You’ve got the whole country supporting you and, while you never like losing, I’m not sure we could have done any better. For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Final sting: As Wallaby coach in 2003, Jones regrets not closing down Matt Dawson in the last playTo win a World Cup you need five world-class players. England were a really good side and they had at least that. They were also the best-prepared side in the tournament. The only thing we perhaps could and should have done was stop Matt Dawson making those extra yards before the drop-goal.My one big regret is becoming Reds coach. My heart wasn’t in it. I did it, in 2006, because I wanted to prove I shouldn’t have been fired from the Wallabies job. It was a bad mistake. The team was on the bottom end of a cycle and needed a clean-out.All I did in 2007 with the Springboks was paint over the cracks. I think the isolation had held them back and they were a little insecure. I look at my time there, when they won the World Cup, as being a house painter and fixing up the bits that needed a little bit of extra attention. I gave them confidence, added subtlety to their attack and taught them how to manipulate attacks.Pitch walk: The Australian helped Jake White “fix up the bits that needed attention” in 2007I jumped at the chance to take over Suntory in 2010. My mother and wife are both Japanese, so I’ve always had an affinity for the country. I always believed they had potential and was alarmed when I returned to see there had been so little development. Japan may never be the world’s top nation but if they can play good rugby consistently they can be at the bottom end of the top tier.Cricket is the only thing I miss living in Tokyo. There is nothing better than watching a five-day Test. I loved the way Ian Chappell captained Australia, standing at slip with his shirt undone. There was a change in Australian cricketing culture and you could see it in front of your eyes.I believe Japan can make the quarter-finals of the 2015 World Cup. South Africa will obviously be very difficult to beat but we’ll give it a go. And if we are at our best, there is no reason we cannot beat Scotland, Samoa and the United States.Having a stroke was a wake-up call. I had to change the way I was operating; I was pushing too hard. It made me realise what I wanted to do – coach and look after my family. I don’t drink now, I eat healthy food, regulate my sleep pattern and don’t have saunas.

first_img Howard Lake | 7 July 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. The University of Chichester is to offer the world’s first undergraduate degree in fundraising from September 2014. The BA (Hons) course is titled ‘Charity Development’, designed to reflect the wide range of skills that will be taught and which are used by successful fundraisers.The course is accredited by the Institute of Fundraising. Paul Marvell, the Institute’s Director of Professional Development and Membership, said: “If you want to help create a better world, fundraising is a fantastic career choice.  No doubt about it, charities are dependent on the skills and professionalism of fundraisers to deliver their work.”Professor Adrian Sargeant, the Robert F. Hartsook Professor of Fundraising at the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University, and Gill Raikes, CEO at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, and previously Director of Fundraising at The National Trust, are the external advisors for the course. Advertisement World’s first undergraduate degree in fundraising to start in 2014 Sargeant wrote recently in the Growing Philanthropy Summit white paper, Growing Philanthropy in the United States, that “Undergraduate degrees in marketing are plentiful, yet a degree to prepare an individual for a career in fundraising is notable only by its absence.”The course has been developed by Donna Day Lafferty, a fundraiser for over 17 years. In addition, she designed and authored the website, an online guide for volunteer fundraisers for the Institute of Fundraising, coordinated the IoF’s first online learning module, and piloted fundraising training for local charity volunteers for Chichester District Council.She said that the aim of the Charity Development degree course “is to expose students to as much best practice and real-life fundraising as possible. The course will include leading guest speakers, students will attend industry conferences and they will be encouraged to spend at least one day a week as a charity intern. I’m going to do all I can to ensure demand is high for both students and graduates and they are a real asset to the charities they work for.”center_img Rowena Lewis, Director of Fundraising, at the charity Gingerbread reflected that “working for a charity is definitely one of the most rewarding careers out there. If this degree in Charity Development had been around when I was at Uni I’d have jumped at it. I’m sure it would have made it easier to break into the sector.”  121 total views,  3 views today  122 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5last_img read more

His arrest was prompted by posts on his blog ( and about war crimes in the southeastern village of Gospic in the 1990s, in which he referred to the existence of a video of witness accusing former defence minister Gojko Susak (now deceased) and a parliamentary deputy president of involvement. Reporters Without Borders issued a release at the time of his arrest firmly condemning it as a press freedom violation.

He has been charged with revealing a state secret.“Journalists’ homes should enjoy the protection necessary for the confidentiality of their sources, without which they cannot work properly,” the press freedom organisation said. “If the authorities want to identify the sources of leaks, they should investigate the members of the national security services instead of harassing journalists whose job is to communicate all information of public interest.”Police arrived at Peratovic’s home at 7 a.m. yesterday and spent seven hours searching it. They then invited him to accompany them for an informal interview which ended at 8 p.m. with his being taken into custody on a charge of revealing a state secret. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office said Peratovic was the subject of a criminal investigation but prosecutors had yet to decide whether he would be brought to trial. The charge carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.Reporters Without Borders has been told his arrest was prompted by posts on his blog ( et relating to war crimes in the village of Gospic in the 1990s.In one of his posts, Peratovic wrote about the account of a Gospic resident who witnessed the atrocities that is to be broadcast in the “Brisani Prostor” programme on public television this evening. He said the programme contained authentic elements and accused former defence minister Gojko Susak (now deceased) and one of the leaders of the ruling Democratic Union Party (HDZ), Darko Milinovic, of being responsible for the atrocities. Milinovic heads the HDZ’s candidate list for the parliamentary elections scheduled for 25 November.Peratovic is known for his reporting on the death of Milan Levar, an International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia protected witness whose identity was revealed by the police. Levar was killed by a car bomb on 28 August 2000 in Gospic. Peratovic was questioned as a witness during the investigation into Levar’s murder as he was one of the last people to see him alive.Peratovic has worked for several daily newspapers, the latest of which was Vjesnik. His investigative reporting on war crimes has got him into a lot of trouble. He lost his job, he has been physically attacked and he is regarded as a traitor by many of his compatriots, who refuse to accept that Croats could have committed war crimes.In 2003, he received a press freedom prize from the Austrian section of Reporters Without Borders. He contacted Reporters Without Borders in 2005 to say he was being closely watched.

first_img Make a comment This past Tuesday, Hollywood and fashion’s finest arrived at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, Botanical Gardens to witness Rodarte debut their fall-winter collection.High-profile guests populated the Rose Hills Foundation Garden Court, a 36-foot-high glass dome on the Huntington grounds.The event was moved indoors due to inclement weather, but sun came out shortly before commencement, embellishing the presentation with a crisp and rejuvenated air.John C. Reilly, Diane Keaton, Shailene Woodley, Tracee Ellis Ross, Elijah Wood, and singer-songwriter Miguel were some of the familiar faces in the crowd.Actresses Brie Larson, Lucy Boynton, Rowan Blanchard, and the Haim sisters (of the pop-rock band HAIM) were all dressed in Rodarte clothes themselves.The collection was dominated by glittery dresses and loud, decorative frills. Floral headdresses, plentiful bows, and bright colors popped. The dresses were voluminous, wavy silhouettes evoking the sensibility of an earlier, bygone era.“The collection was really referencing musicals in an abstract way,” Laura Mulleavy told The Hollywood Reporter. “The idea of dance in cinema from the ‘30s to the ‘70s was interesting to us in the colors and fabrications,”The runway show marked the first time Kate and Laura Mulleavy, sisters and founders of the art-fashion brand, have presented their floral and gothic styles in their own hometown.The siblings created Rodarte ion 2004, upon return to their parents’ home in Pasadena, after graduating from UC Berkeley.With Rodarte’s show coming only hours before New York Fashion Week kicked off (NYFW runs from Feb. 8 to Feb. 16), the star-studded audience spoke to the Mulleavy sisters’ consolidated stature as fashion innovators.
