According to the agreement, any ownership change will need federal approval.Approval from state-run explorer ONGC, which has a 30 per cent stake in Cairn India’s Rajasthan oil block called RJ-ON-90/1, is also crucial for any change of ownership. Gammell said: “We will work with the government. The process will continue over a period of time. I am sure there will be bumps along the road in terms of different interpretations. So, we are working constructively with the government.” He added. “I think working with the government as we always do will find a win-win situation. We will obviously respect all rights and approvals.”ONGC has not yet raised concerns on the deal, Indian oil secretary Sundareshan said yesterday. “We will certainly take into account views of ONGC before a decision is taken. ONGC has not raised any concerns with us yet for the reason that there is no official proposal before us.”ONGC chairman R.S. Sharma said the company was examining the implications of Vedanta’s stake purchase and would respond appropriately later. He declined to comment on market talk ONGC might make a counter-bid for Cairn India’s stake.Vedanta Resources announced Monday it would buy a controlling stake in Cairn India for up to $9.6bn, adding to its assets that already include aluminium, copper, iron ore and zinc mines. last_img read more

first_img WHAT is London? A city, yes, but so much more. It is a global centre of finance, sure. It is by some measures the world’s creative capital, from media to theatre to film; home to the world’s most popular music venue and its most popular modern art gallery. The university capital of the world, with more top universities and international students than any other city. A global leader in medical research, and the European leader in digital technology. We might not be the fashion capital quite yet, but we did give the world the business suit. The best restaurants, even the French are starting to say. More museums than Paris, less rain than Rome, a quarter the murder rate of New York. Next year, we’ll become the first city in history to host the Olympics three times.I say all this because when we asked business what the top thing is that the Mayor can do to boost the London economy, the answer came: promote it. He is in a unique position to champion London around the world, in a way that no individual company can.The Mayor inherited various agencies – Think London, to promote inward investment, Study London, to encourage international students, and Visit London, to encourage tourists. They all did a good job within their sector, but businesses urged the Mayor to merge them so we can take a more strategic and flexible approach, and get more promotional bang for our buck. Uniting them, we can promote a coherent message about London with a single brand, and promote whichever sectors give the greatest economic returns. By combining forces, we can reduce duplication and increase the firepower.After two years of preparations, we last week launched the capital’s new promotional agency – London and Partners. Despite cuts from central government, we managed to fund it from our own resources. And although mainly publicly funded, we set it up to be ruthlessly commercially-led, with a private sector board, and working in close partnership with companies as well as public agencies. From early days, Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas, chairman of the New West End Company, was very generous with her time, and we were delighted when she agreed to be the founding chairman.All we need do now is actually promote London. And what a time to do it! This month we have the Royal wedding, next year the Queen’s diamond Jubilee closely followed by the Olympics and Paralympics, with the world’s eyes upon us. London and Partners will be leading the charge in using the 2012 games to promote all that our great city has to offer the world. London might be glowing, but it is set to shine even brighter.Planning an event for 2012?

first_imgKobia said the deals show the operator was committed to supporting local sport. “Betsafe launches at the right time when our football league is returning,” he said. “Our partnership with them will go a long way in lifting the standards of our game to the next level.  “Our three-year sponsorship deal with Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards signed in June 2020, before our official entry is a visible demonstration of our strong commitment to Kenyan football,” Kobia said. “Their large and loyal fan bases, will also give us an opportunity to engage with football fans and while also acting as the backbone to our planned investments in grassroots football and football infrastructure.” “Additionally, we will be the first gaming company in the region, to hire a responsible gaming officer, to continually ensure alignment with Betsafe values towards its customers, and while managing our flagship responsible gaming programme in partnership with GamHelp Kenya – an organization that supports Kenyans with behavioural problems associated with gaming.” Betsson brand Betsafe has launched operations in Kenya, six months after signing major sponsorship deals in the country, having secured a licence from the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB). Email Address “In Betsafe we have a partner who is supportive and committed to us and we cannot thank them enough. We urge our fans to give Betsafe unconditional support and wholly take up their products with the zeal that is uniquely Gor Mahia.”  “Betsafe was created with the safety of Kenya’s sports betting fans in mind, with a first in-class responsible gaming environment that contains unique control and safety features,” he said.  Betsafe’s entry into the market comes after signing sponsorship deals with two of Kenya’s leading football clubs, Nairobi rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards, in June. Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier agreed with this sentiment and said Betsafe had shown a strong commitment to the club. The operator said it would employ 150 people in the country within two years and that it estimates it will support at least 1,000 jobs when including other businesses that may benefit from its presence. Both clubs had been struggling financially since the withdrawal of their previous sponsor, local operator Sportpesa, over a 20% excise tax on winnings, which was later removed from Kenya’s budget in July. Sportpesa returned to the Kenyan market again last week after a court overruled the BCLB’s efforts to suspend its attempt to return under a new licence-holder in October. The launch will be through Bet High Kenya, Betsson’s Kenyan subsidiary.  Sportsbook 3rd December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boylecenter_img Alex Kobia, Bet High’s acting chief executive, said Betsafe hoped to distinguish itself with a focus on responsible gambling. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “We look forward to working with them and ask our fans to fully embrace Betsafe as our sponsor and most importantly as our betting partner.” In addition, the operator will offer a market-first in betting by text message and via social media channels. Betsafe launches in Kenya While operators including Sportpesa have faced long disputes with the BCLB, Kobia said his business would work with the regulator to create a workable betting environment for all parties. Topics: Sports betting Sponsorship Sports betting regulation Sportsbook “Betsafe fully supports the government of Kenya’s efforts to create a safe and responsible gaming environment through the sector regulator, the Betting Control & Licensing Board (BCLB) and our gaming features and messaging are a testament to that,” Kobia said. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Betsson Betting Control and Licensing Board Betsafe “The launch of Betsafe is monumental to the development of football in Kenya,” Shikanda said. “As a club we are grateful to them for having believed in us and agreed to sponsor and support us even before they officially started operations.” AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda said the operator launching was an important development for football in the country.

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Wednesday, 1st January, 2020 Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If you prefer to invest in actively managed funds, as opposed to picking stocks yourself, you have no shortage of options these days. On platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown, there are literally hundreds of funds to choose from.That said, it’s important to do your research when choosing a fund for your portfolio. Some funds have performed far better than others (and let’s not talk about the Neil Woodford debacle). With that in mind, here’s a look at six funds I’d be happy to invest in for 2020 and beyond.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…UK equitiesIf you’re looking for a UK equity fund that has the potential to deliver a nice mix of capital gains and income, take a look at the TB Evenlode Income fund. What I like about this particular fund is that the portfolio managers focus on high-quality UK businesses. Top holdings currently include the likes of Unilever, Relx, and Sage. The performance of this fund has been excellent in recent years – over one year, it’s delivered a return of about 26% while over five years, it’s returned over 80%. Fees through Hargreaves are 0.9% per year (plus platform fees).Another investment fund I like in the UK equities space is the Franklin UK Rising Dividends fund. Like the Evenlode fund, this fund has the potential to deliver both capital gains and income. Top holdings currently include Unilever, Shell, and Diageo. Performance here has been very good for a dividend-focused fund – over one year the fund is up about 25% while over five it’s up approximately 58%. Fees are low through Hargreaves at just 0.55% per year.Finally, if you’re more of a growth investor, you might be interested in the CFP SDL UK Buffettology fund. This is a top-performing fund that, as its name suggests, invests with a Warren Buffett-like approach. It also has quite a strong focus on smaller high-growth companies. Top holdings currently include Games Workshop, AB Dynamics, and Dart Group. Over the last year, this fund has returned about 27% while over five, it has returned an excellent 127%. Fees are 1.19% per year through Hargreaves.Global equitiesFor exposure to global equities, it’s hard to look past the Fundsmith Equity fund. Between its inception in late 2010 and the end of November this year, Fundsmith delivered a return of 363%, outperforming its benchmark by a huge margin. Top holdings here include the likes of Microsoft, PayPal, and Facebook, meaning you’re getting exposure to some exciting high-growth companies. Just be aware that Fundsmith is quite concentrated, which adds risk. Fees are 0.95% per year through Hargreaves.Another top option for global equities is the Lindsell Train Global Equity fund. Like Fundsmith, this fund has delivered fantastic returns over the years (five-year return of around 150%) but is also quite concentrated. Top holdings here include Unilever, Diageo, and Heineken and fees are a very reasonable 0.55% per year through Hargreaves.Finally, check out the relatively new global equity fund Blue Whale Growth. Since its launch in September 2017, it has performed exceptionally well, delivering a gain of 43% to the end of November versus 19% for the Investment Association’s global sector average (placing it second out of 284 funds). Top holdings include Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk, and fees are 0.89% per year through Hargreaves. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Edward Sheldon owns shares in Hargreaves Lansdown, Unilever, Diageo, Royal Dutch Shell, Sage, and Microsoft and has positions in the Fundsmith Equity fund, Lindsell Train Global Equity fund, the Franklin UK Rising Dividends fund, the Blue Whale Growth fund, and the Lindsell Train Global Equity fund. Teresa Kersten, an employee of LinkedIn, a Microsoft subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors.

first_img SHARE Home Energy Growth Energy CEO Reflects on Wake-Up Call of 1973 Oil Embargo By Andy Eubank – Oct 16, 2013 Growth Energy CEO Reflects on Wake-Up Call of 1973 Oil Embargo Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter On the 40th anniversary of the oil embargo of 1973 – Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis notes the nation is still dangerously addicted to foreign oil. In reflecting on the anniversary – he says we should recognize that it’s futile to put all our eggs in one basked. Buis says we need diverse policy that helps shield us from the price hikes, supply shortages, shocks and the whims of foreign governments. Over the last 40 years – Buis says we’ve experienced price shock after price shock due to unrest and instability in the Middle East. Buis points out that wars have been fought, trillions of dollars have been spent to protect the flow of oil and trillions more of our wealth has been transferred to foreign nations. Most important – he says the precious lives of American soldiers have been lost due to our addiction to foreign oil. Buis says renewable fuels allow us to achieve energy independence while continuing to produce energy domestically. But he says we must break free from the stranglehold oil companies have on the liquid fuels marketplace and must not allow the special interests of Big Oil to erect hurdles to prevent consumers from having choice and savings at the pump. Buis says the Renewable Fuel Standard is our nation’s most successful energy policy. He says it’s helped secure America’s energy and national security while ensuring long-term, widespread economic growth. Also – since its implementation – Buis notes renewable fuels have helped lower oil imports from 60-percent to 40-percent. Forty years ago – Buis says we didn’t have a choice – but now we do. He says we shouldn’t let that choice go to waste.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleIndiana Farmer Testing Enlist Weed Control SystemNext articleUSDA Announces Cancellation and Postponement of Selected Reports Andy Eubanklast_img read more

first_img Governor’s Conference Highlights Indiana’s Potential for Growth in AgricultureThe Governor’s conference on Agriculture, held Friday, brought together farmers, agribusiness leaders, and state officials to examine how our state is preparing to meet the challenging future of food production. The goal of the daylong event was to examine how Indiana is preparing to become a global leader in food production innovation. Governor Pence promised that the state’s pro-growth policy toward agriculture will continue, “We are determined to continue to promote the kind of policies that will encourage innovation and keep Indiana at the forefront of the agricultural sector of this nation and the world.”Jay AkridgeBut, increasing global food demand along with the uncertainty of climate change will require farmers to make changes in how they farm and what they grow.  Dean of the Purdue College of Agriculture Jay Akridge says Purdue is already working on new technology that will help Hoosier farmers meet these challenges, “We have researchers doing research in really hot areas of the world on corn, and those traits can be brought back to Indiana to help us grow corn in drought conditions.” In addition, Purdue is working on new crops that may soon fill Indiana fields, “Sorghum is a good example. We don’t grow a lot of it now, but it is an important crop in many parts of the world and may have a future here.”  Akridge told HAT the Purdue Extension system is poised to help facilitate changes in farming practices as they are required.Tim HassingerTim Hassinger, President of Dow AgroSciences, and Jeff Simmons, President of Elanco Animal Health, stressed that public and government support of this new technology will be critical to continued investment in innovation. Hassinger said it takes 10 years and over $100 million to bring a new crop trait to market.  He stressed regulatory certainty will be needed to foster continued investment in innovation, “In the year 2000, there were 70 active ingredients in the research pipeline. In 2006, there were 30.”  Greg Page, Executive Chairman of Cargill, said Indiana has the resources needed to be a major force in world agriculture production and innovation, “You have a great river and lake system, and your central location lets you reach large population centers quickly. In short, uyou have some of the best soils in the world in the best location in the world.”  Managing those resources and fostering innovation will be the focus of a growing public-private partnership in the Hoosier State involving state government, farmers, Purdue University, and some of the largest agribusinesses in the world which are located in Indiana.  Under the moniker  “AgriNovus,” this partnership will strive to foster growth in the ag sector within the state, as well as providing resources to grow innovation within the agriculture and food production sectors. The conference ended, however, without a clear plan of action or next steps being articulated.
