whatsapp CAPITAL Shopping Centres (CSC) confirmed yesterday it was close to buying the Trafford Centre in Manchester for a total of £1.6bn. The retail property group said it was in advanced talks with current owner Peel Holdings, which has held the shopping centre since it was built in 1998 at a cost of £600m. CSC plans to issue £750m in new shares and convertible bonds to Peel, as well as taking on £800m net debt from the firm if the deal goes ahead. Peel, which is privately owned by property billionaire John Whittaker, will own 19.9 per cent of CSC as part of the deal. Peel could also convert bonds it receives through the sale into shares, giving it a 24.9 per cent stake and making Whittaker the largest investor in CSC. He will become a non-executive director and deputy chairman of the CSC board, the firm said. CSC announced that it was also considering an equity placing worth up to 9.9 per cent of existing shares, worth £221m at yesterday’s closing price, to help fund the purchase and pay down debt. However, the total amount raised is likely to be lower as the stock becomes diluted by the two share issues. Seymour Pierce analyst Sue Munden, who currently has a “sell” rating on CSC, told City A.M. yesterday: “This move is to be welcomed. Obviously the share placing is going to have a dilutive effect, but it is a way for the company to attract investors at a time when they are acquiring a high profile asset.“We have always believed that the operational management of the group is strong but they have been held back, in our view, by a weak financial structure.”Shares closed 5.1 per cent lower yesterday at 337.4p.SIMON MACKENZIE-SMITHMERRILL LYNCHCAPITAL Shopping Centres (CSC) has taken on Bank of America Merrill Lynch and UBS to advise on its planned share placing. Simon Mackenzie-Smith and Simon Fraser are heading the team at BAML. Mackenzie-Smith has been with Merrill Lynch since 1996, when he joined as managing director of investment banking. He is credited with being instrumental in establishing the bank’s UK franchise, and has been involved in a wide range of mergers and acquisitions and restructurings – including Punch’s acquisition of managed pubs operation Spirit in 2006.Co-head of corporate broking Simon Fraser has spent 14 years at the bank, working alongside Mackenzie-Smith on the Segro, Debenhams and Liberty deals, as well as Inchcape, Natex and SSE.UBS corporate broking managing director Jonathan Bewes and head of investment banking Hew Glyn Davies are also advising. Davies has several retailers among his client list including Sainsbury’s and Northern Foods, as well as Bank of Ireland, which completed a €1.7bn rights issue in June.Bewes worked with Davies to advise Capital Shopping Centres when it split from Liberty in March this year. He has also worked with AMEC, chemicals firm ICI and broadcaster Carlton during its £4bn merger with Granada.

Regions: Europe Baltics Latvia AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Latvia’s legislature, the Saeima, has approved at the first reading a bill to ban alimony debtors from gambling, and scheduled a second reading for 20 January. The bill was submitted by the government and has already received approval from the Commission for Human Rights and Public Affairs with no objections. The legislature added that other restrictions for alimony debtors, such as on ownership of firearms and certain vehicles, are already in place. If it passes in a second and third reading and is signed into law, the restriction will come into effect on 1 April. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The bill, a set of amendments to the Law on the Maintenance Guarantee Fund, would require operators to ensure that those who owe maintenance payments are not permitted to gamble either in person or online. Regulation On 9 June, the Saeima passed a bill to end the national state of emergency, allowing online gambling to operate again. In order to do so, they must check accounts against the national register of maintenance debtors, with the help of the Lotteries and Gambling Inspectorate, which will create an official data display for licensees. The legislature said that it expects this process to be similar to performing a self-exclusion check. In April, Latvia banned all gambling as the country dealt with the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, shutting down land-based venues to limit the spread of the virus, while also suspending all online licences. “The restriction is intended to prevent debtors who do not provide maintenance they owe for a child from using funds unreasonably for entertainment and hobbies,” the Saeima said. In the third quarter of 2020, the Latvian gaming industry brought in €55.2m in revenue, up significantly from Q2 when the industry dealt with the ban, but down 33.2% year-on-year.

‘We will not obey’ — slogan of the mass movement resisting the stealing of Haiti’s elections. Photo: Malaika KambonOakland, Calif. — An event commemorating the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of Haiti’s first democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, was held at the Eastside Arts Alliance in east Oakland on Feb. 28. The event also marked 12 years since the Feb. 29, 2004, U.S.-backed coup d’etat, which overthrew Aristide and the progressive Lavalas government. The United States and its allies installed a United Nations military occupation of Haiti that continues to this day.In addition to powerful drumming, there were talks by Pierre Labossiere of the Haiti Action Committee; Walter Riley, a civil rights attorney and chair of the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund; and Lara Kiswani of the Arab Resource & Organizing Center.The event was organized by the Haiti Action Committee, which issued this statement: “This is a critical moment to stand with Haiti, denounce U.S. attacks on Haiti’s sovereignty and defend Haiti’s popular movement. Tens of thousands of Haitians face tear gas and live ammunition in almost daily demonstrations demanding free and fair elections and an end to foreign intervention. The power of this movement forced postponement of a fraudulent presidential ‘runoff’ scheduled for Jan. 24th.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Reporters Without Borders condemns the jamming of some of the programmes of Short Wave Radio Africa (SWRA), a London-based radio station staffed by Zimbabwean exile journalists that broadcasts to Zimbabwe. Various sources said they thought Zimbabwe’s Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) was responsible for the interference, which began on 1 September.“While the licences granted to several independent publications last May improved media diversity after years of a state media monopoly, the jamming of this exile radio station is an extremely negative sign,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The relaxation seen in the print media is clearly not on the cards for the broadcast media. We urge the national unity government to clarify this situation without delay and to guarantee the right of access to information.”The first 30 minutes of SWRA’s programming on the evening 1 September, a news programme called Newsreel, was rendered inaudible by interference which stopped as soon as the news programme ended. The jamming of Newsreel has been repeated several times since then.President Robert Mugabe’s government used Chinese equipment to jam SWRA, Voice of America’s Studio 7 and Radio Voice of the People (VOP) in 2005. The president regarded them as pirate stations that were broadcasting to Zimbabwe with the sole aim of overthrowing him.Five years before that, Zimbabwe’s supreme court ruled in favour of SWRA, then called Capital Radio, when it challenged the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation’s broadcasting monopoly. The police had shut Capital Radio down six days after it began broadcasting from a Harare hotel.In a separate case, artist Owen Maseko is facing a possible 20-year jail sentence on a charge of “communicating falsehoods in order to incite violence” for organising an exhibition on the so-called Gukurahundi massacres that took place shortly after Zimbabwe gained independence. On 27 August, the government announced a ban on any film, publication or artistic work about the Gukurahundi.“This retrograde measure shows that some sectors of the Zimbabwean government still tend to react in a paranoid fashion and are clearly not ready to tolerate free expression about events that are part of the country’s history,” Reporters Without Borders said, calling for the withdrawal of the charges against Maseko.

Required fields are marked * More Cool Stuff Business News Community News Today, the California State Legislature passed SB 3, a measure to increase California’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022. The bill passed the State Assembly 48-26, and the State Senate 26-12. Governor Jerry Brown is expected to sign the bill into law, which by January 2017 will make California’s minimum wage the highest of any state in the nation.This is a major victory for families across the state struggling to make ends meet,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “With the gridlock in the nation’s Capital, California has once again shown it can lead.”The vast majority of California families of three or more with a full-time minimum wage worker live in poverty. By raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2022, a broad range of workers, including these families, will be lifted out of poverty.SB 3 considers the needs of businesses, as the wage increase is phased in over a five year period and gives businesses with under 26 employees more time to adjust. Lawmakers expect some of the increased costs for businesses to be reduced by turnover and increases in worker productivity. Additionally, unlike both minimum wage increase initiatives set to be on the 2016 general election ballot, SB 3 includes economic and budget provisions to allow for pauses in the wage increase during potential economic down times.“Thanks to the leadership of Governor Brown and the hard work of many stakeholders, we have taken one big step forward to address income inequality.” said Holden. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News Community News Subscribe Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Beauty Secrets Only Indian Women KnowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Female Celebs Women Love But Men Find UnattractiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNerdy Movie Kids Who Look Unrecognizable TodayHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeauty Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Make a comment Government Historic Minimum Wage Law Passes State Legislature Published on Thursday, March 31, 2016 | 1:52 pm
EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Jynx (A471061) is one beautiful cat! He’s a 5-year-old who was surrendered to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA in mid-January and was pretty shy. We thought he might come out of his shell if he was in one of our cat communal rooms, and be able to interact with other cats. Jynx is now doing so much better. He even has a best friend, Ralphie (A471298), a 2-year-old red tabby. They get along great except when Ralphie tries to eat Jynx’s treats. Jynx is also very sweet to people, and likes to be petted around his ears. He’ll even head bump and purr for more human affection. Because Jynx seems to like other cats, just as much as people, we recommend Jynx going to a home that already has a cat so he will have a guaranteed play mate.The adoption fee for cats is $90. All cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated before being adopted.New adopters will receive a complimentary health-and-wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a goody bag filled with information about how to care for your pet.View photos of adoptable pets at pasadenahumane.org.

It takes him a little bit of time to open up to people, but once he does there’s no going back. Toby is a loving dog and is very treat motivated. He enjoys playtime in our training yard and likes to play fetch with our volunteers. He gets along well with other dogs, but would rather spend his time being petted by humans. Toby will do best with an experienced dog owner and he would like to be the only dog in the house. He knows the sit cue and paw cue, but is excited for some more training.The adoption fee for dogs is $140.

Had 116 previous convictions WITH what his solicitor called a “cavalier attitude to driving”, a former state prosecution witness has appeared before Limerick District Court charged with road traffic offences just three weeks after being sentenced on similar charges.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Twenty-one-year-old Erol Ibrahim, of Delmege Park, Moyross, was before Judge Tom O’Donnell after Garda Keith King stopped the accused while driving an uninsured car in Limerick last year.Evidence was heard in the court a day earlier involving Ibrahim and similar road traffic incidents. It also heard that he had some 116 previous convictions for “numerous road traffic convictions”.John Devane, solicitor, told the court that his client received sentences three weeks ago for dangerous driving and driving without insurance.He also added that the 21-year-old father of one had a “cavalier attitude to driving”.Adding that Ibrahim was in poor circumstances, Mr Devane said that his future looked bleak.He also noted that Judge O’Donnell had earlier considered a lengthy suspended sentence, and thus, Ibrahim would “sign his own warrant” if found in breach of road traffic legislation again.Judge O’Donnell said that the accused had an appalling record and still had a bulk of road traffic convictions, no matter what the disqualification was handed down by the courts.For Garda Keith King’s matter of driving without insurance, he sentenced Ibrahim to six months in prison and suspended it pending he be on good behaviour for a period of two years.He also handed down a second consecutive six month prison suspended sentence for other road traffic matters heard earlier in court.Ibrahim was placed on his own bond of €100 and disqualified from driving for six years, before Judge O’Donnell said: “To put it in simple terms, if you are caught driving in the next two years, you will be going to prison for 12 months to start with”.
