The future of Ontario’s partially privatized utility is again uncertain after political intervention prompted the resignation of the company’s board 16 years after another mass departure.Hydro One’s 14-member board resigned en masse last week after the sudden retirement of chief executive officer Mayo Schmidt, labelled “the six-million-dollar man” on the campaign trail by Premier Doug Ford for his hefty compensation.The premier made it clear that he wanted changes, including reduced electricity rates and lower compensation for the CEO — even though 92 per cent of shareholders other than the province supported Hydro One’s executive compensation approach.However, the move will come with costs of its own.Political interference and a lower pay package will make it more difficult to attract a quality chief executive and directors willing to serve, said Jeremy Rosenfield of Industrial Alliance Securities.“It’s clearly going to have to be somebody who will be able to work with the province and I believe many CEOs will not accept the level of potential political interference that would be required to take this role.”A Ford spokesman declined to confirm a published report that the government threatened to rip up the board’s executive employment contracts unless they negotiated their departures.In addition to dealing with a large activist investor, the new board faces uncertainty about what the new government actually intends to do with its investment, since no strategy was outlined in the campaign, Rosenfield added.Schmidt, who earned a $6.2-million salary last year, became a lightning rod for resentment during the election over rising electricity rates in the province. He would have been entitled to at least $10.7 million in severance if he were to be removed from his job by the board of directors, according to the company’s annual shareholders report released on March 29.According to a statement from Hydro One, Schmidt will not be entitled to severance, and will instead receive a $400,000 lump sum payment in lieu of all post-retirement benefits. But he still stands to earn millions from deferred stock options.Schmidt’s compensation was comparable to the heads of large private utilities like Fortis Inc., Atco Ltd. and Emera Inc. but more than 10 times the payout to Canadian electrical utilities in Quebec and British Columbia.The government will select four board members. A committee of the outgoing board, working with its largest shareholders, will name six others with the new CEO making up the 11th member. The transition to a new board is expected to be completed by Aug. 15.Changing Hydro One’s board alone won’t reduce electricity rates, which are set by the provincial energy regulator.To remain a viable public company, Hydro One has to charge rates to recover costs and be able to make long-term investments, said Rosenfield.“Hypothetically, the government could install a CEO of its choosing who would choose to argue in favour of much lower hydro rates, but it would have to build a business case that would support much lower hydro rates.”While questions about Hydro One’s future remain unanswered, there is a precedent at the power company itself.“We’ve seen this movie once before,” said University of Waterloo professor Jatin Nathwani.In 2002, the utility’s board quit before Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government fired CEO Eleanor Clitheroe over alleged personal spending.“To the extent that the board resigned and there was CEO compensation (issues) it’s similar,” said Radcliffe Latimer, a former board member.“But at the time our board resigned we were a Crown corporation and totally at the pleasure of the minister. Hydro One now is a public corporation so I suspect there are significant governance differences that apply in the two cases.”Hydro One was partially privatized in November 2015, and by December 2017 the province had sold off 53 per cent of its stake.The former Liberal government said privatization would raise $9 billion to fund transit and infrastructure projects. Privatization was also aimed at driving down costs by spinning it off into the hands of private investors.“The whole purpose was to say if we run this as a profit-oriented business then we could cut costs and we can save money for customers in Ontario,” said Nathwani.Investors responded to the latest resignations by sending its shares to an all-time low of $18.57 on Thursday before closing the week down 1.8 per cent to $19.17 in Friday trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.“It will take a hit on its valuation for sure with this kind of chaos,” Nathwani said.Some of the concern is whether leadership turmoil at Hydro One could prompt U.S. regulators to hesitate about the planned $6.7-billion takeover of U.S. utility Avista Corp.A series of analysts including Rosenfield downgraded the company after the move despite its stable earnings, healthy earnings growth and attractive yield.“The heightened potential for further political interference in the province’s electricity market and regulated utility framework represent key risk factors that are likely to outweigh Hydro One’s fundamentals over the near term.”Companies in this story: (TSX:H, TSX:FTS, TSX:ACO.X, TSX:EMA)

CALGARY — Akita Drilling Ltd. is buying U.S.-focused rival Xtreme Drilling Corp. in a $209-million cash-and-shares deal designed to gain greater access to the more active U.S. oil and gas exploration market.The Calgary-based companies say the resulting medium-sized drilling firm will have a total of 44 rigs in major resource basins in Canada and the United States.Akita, which has been focused on drilling in Western and Northern Canada, announced in January it would make its initial entry into the U.S. market by moving a rig from Canada to Texas to take advantage of greater demand from oil and gas producers there.It now has two of its 28 rigs in the U.S. All 16 of Xtreme’s rigs are working south of the border.Xtreme shareholders are to receive 0.29 of an Akita non-voting share and 59 cents in cash for each share tendered, representing what Akita says is a 32 per cent premium over the 20-day volume weighted average price. Akita has agreed to assume $10 million of Xtreme’s debt.Akita says the deal will provide greater financial capacity to build new drilling rigs. It says it expects to find $8 million per year in cost savings through synergies from the merger.“The transaction is a continuation of Akita’s strategy of capitalizing on the improving fundamentals in the U.S. land drilling market,” Akita CEO Karl Ruud said.The transaction is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2018 and will require approval by a two-thirds majority vote by Xtreme’s shareholders.Companies in this article: (TSX:AKT.A, TSX:AKT.B, TSX:XDC)
TSX closes higher as profit takers move on previous session losses AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 22, 2012 5:19 pm MDT TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed slightly higher on Friday as profit takers moved in after deep losses in the previous session.The S&P/TSX composite index ended up 27.23 points to 11,435.54, a mild boost from the 350-point loss on Thursday, the biggest single-day drop of the year. The main index ended the week down about 0.78 per cent.The TSX Venture Exchange lost 11.32 points to 1,206.03.The Canadian dollar gained 0.45 of a cent to 97.60 cents US, after a report from Statistics Canada showed the country’s inflation rate dropped to its lowest level in nearly two years.On the TSX, utilities stocks led gains with TransAlta Corp. (TSX:TA) rising four cents to $17.18.Also rising was the financial sector, which was up 0.7 per cent, despite a move by Moody’s Investors Service to cut the credit ratings of 15 of the world’s largest banks, including Barclays, Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank (TSX:RY).The ratings agency’s comments appeared to clear the air on some uncertainties about banks with large capital markets exposure. Some of those worries had been built into stock prices months ago when Moody’s announced that it had launched the review. Shares in Royal Bank — a heavyweight on the TSX — were up 63 cents to $51.96.Leading the decliners was the gold sector, which was down 1.1 per cent as August gold rose $1.40 at US$1,566.90 an ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange after losing $50 Thursday. The price of gold has fallen 3.8 per cent this week.July copper prices gained one cent to US$3.31 a pound.On Wall Street, the Dow Jones average was up 67.21 points to 12,640.78, the Nasdaq rose 33.33 points to 2,892.42 and the S&P 500 gained 9.51 points to 1,335.02.The August crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange closed $1.56 higher at US$79.76 a barrel, ending the week about five per cent lower.Shares of Centerra Gold (TSX:CG) plunged 26 per cent as legislators in Kyrgyzstan debated whether to strip the company of its licence to mine a major gold field in the Central Asian country, with some accusing it of damaging the environment and profiting excessively. The company’s stock was down $3.07 at $8.71.Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP) said it has a multi-year agreement with U.S. Silica to transport frac sand, but declined to disclose the value of the contract. The operator will be the exclusive rail service provider to the American company’s newest mining and processing facility in Sparta, Wis. Shares of Canadian Pacific were up 23 cents at $74.48.Statistics Canada said inflation fell to 1.2 per cent last month as Canadians paid less for gasoline, video equipment and some types of clothing, while price gains in many other consumer goods moderated.On Thursday, the TSX plummeted three per cent, closing more than 350 points lower in its biggest one-day drop since November. Much of the pull was from resource stocks and tanking commodity prices.European and Asian stocks fell Friday after economic reports suggested growth will weaken in the world’s major economies. Downbeat data on Germany, China and the U.S. came on top of uncertainty over whether European leaders will make progress in tackling their debt crisis at key meetings.Germany’s Ifo institute reported that business optimism fell for a second straight month in Europe’s largest economy, which has been growing more strongly than the 17-member eurozone as a whole. The survey index dipped to 105.3 from 106.9 in May.That followed a U.S. Labor Department report Thursday that the four-week average of applications for unemployment benefits jumped to the highest level in nine months. Appetite for financial assets such as stocks was also dented by the results of a monthly HSBC survey, which showed that manufacturing in China has continued to contract.China’s growth has been a pillar of the global economy in recent years, so its slowdown has been of particular concern to investors.

iPad : déjà 120.000 précommandes États-Unis – L’impatience des mordus d’Apple est plus que manifeste : plus de 120.000 iPad auraient déjà été vendus en précommande en une seule journée. On parle de recettes atteignant les 75 millions de dollars.Malgré plusieurs observateurs sceptiques, l’iPad semble avoir pris un départ très prometteur. Après une journée de disponibilité en précommande, la nouvelle tablette Internet d’Apple aurait ainsi été écoulée à 120.000 exemplaires ! Une opération qui a permis à Apple de générer 75 millions de dollars de recettes. “Nous sommes seulement à trois semaines de sa commercialisation, c’est incroyable”, s’enthousiasme Victor Castroll, analyste chez Valcent Financial Group. Parmi les tendances, on peut noter essentiellement que le modèle Wi-Fi, disponible le 3 avril, fonctionne bien (69% des ventes) et que les clients se distribuent équitablement entre les différentes versions de l’iPad, existant en 16, 32 et 64 Go. Néanmoins, ces chiffres sont à nuancer puisque manifestement, ce sont les passionnés d’Apple qui, sans même avoir testé l’outil, l’ont acheté. Ces résultats encourageants devront être maintenus dans la durée avant de parler de véritable succès.Le 15 mars 2010 à 11:15 • Emmanuel Perrin
WASHINGTON — For months, commentators and officials describing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia have used words such as “collusion” and “coordination” to summarize the complicated federal probe.President Donald Trump himself has latched onto the terms, declaring on Twitter last week that there had been “NO COLLUSION” after criminal charges were unveiled against three of his ex-campaign aides.But the words by themselves do little to explain how campaign officials might be prosecuted for contacts with Russian operatives, according to legal experts. That raises questions about which crimes Mueller’s prosecutors will use to bring criminal cases stemming from what began as a FBI counterintelligence investigation 15 months ago.“Conspiracy itself is not a crime: You’ve got to conspire to commit a crime,” said Kate Stith, a former federal prosecutor and professor at Yale Law School. “The question is, what crimes are they looking at?”____WHAT CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED?That question was partially answered when a judge unsealed an indictment against onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, who were charged with violating federal money laundering, foreign lobbying and banking laws for behavior occurring as far back as 2012.

One of the best ways of reaching your market is via your own website. I know this sounds obvious, but it always surprises me the number of controlled magazines that do not have a new subscription offer on their site. In some cases this is because the magazine’s rate base is very healthy, but in this day and age of reduced budgets this is the exception rather than the norm.I visit many websites during the course of a week, and there is no real happy medium. You either get no subscription offers at all, or so many that every time you go to a site, any good cheer gained at this time of year is well and truly lost.If you are making multiple offers via your website, keep them under control otherwise you will scare people off. There is nothing more annoying than navigating to a page, only to get an offer for something you don’t want that is replaced by an offer for something else you don’t want when you close the page on the first offer. The record so far stands at seven offers, and by the time I was able to rid my life of all these offers, I had forgotten why I had gone to the website in the first place—and have not been back since. Actually, I lied, there is one thing more annoying. Going to the same website and getting the same “literature” every time. Control your offers including when and how people see them. Any circulation or audience development professional that does not liaise with the IT department on at least a weekly basis is missing opportunities and more importantly probably losing orders. Being able to react to news relating to your business is key, especially if it is “hot” news. Taking quick advantage of breaking news can be handled with a 250 x 250 ad on the website that circulation or audience development can upload themselves; early birds catching worms comes to mind. You know what I mean!Make sure your offer can be seen efficiently on mobile devices. Some advertisements I have been exposed to have rendered my mobile phone immobile. I know it sounds obvious, but there is nothing worse than an Englishman with an immobile mobile—Sting might even write a song about it. There is only so much any one person can take, so make sure you do not overplay your hand, or else you may well find your prospect is going somewhere else (and despite paywalls, there usually is somewhere else) to get the information you yourself offer.
SheKnows announced that it had acquired women’s blogging network BlogHer on Monday. The acquisition gives SheKnows Media an additional 30 million monthly unique visitors, which it claims makes it the largest women’s lifestyle digital network.The BlogHer brand will continue to live on under the umbrella of SheKnows Media.Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, however AdvertisingAge reports a sale price of between $30-40 million.

What’s more, its aggregate social audience is reportedly 147.4 million. Given that digital scale, Guelton quips he doesn’t see other lifestyle publishers as his competition so much as social networks like Facebook. He admits that may not be the best approach, because social is an important touch point for the brands and content under the SheKnows Media umbrella, but his point is that it reaches a larger audience than other lifestyle publishers like AOL, Condé Nast, Meredith or Hearst.
Prime minister Sheikh HasinaAwami League president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday urged the countrymen to cast vote for her party to serve the people again, saying the people’s fortune is changed when the Awami League remains in power.“I seek your vote for boat so we can serve you again,” she said while addressing a huge rally at Taragonj Degree College Ground this afternoon arriving in Rangpur earlier this morning on a daylong visit in the third leg of her election tour.Sheikh Hasina said her government took massive programmes for overall development of the northwestern region including greater Rangpur.“We’ve already constructed many roads and bridges here, while works are underway to implement many schemes. So I seek your vote to complete the unfinished works,” she said.The premier said there was a time when the northern region was described as a Monga-prone area “but those bad days have gone”“By the grace of Allah, there is no Monga in the region . . . this has been possible as you cast vote for Awami League time and again,” she said.Being the party chief Sheikh Hasina introduced Awami League candidate from the constituency Abul Kalam Mohammad Ahsanul Haque Chowdhury Duke and sought vote for him.Sheikh Hasina said the country witnessed tremendous development over the past 10 years and urged the countrymen to give their verdict to keep up the development spree.“Do you want to keep up the continuation of development in the country? If you want it then you will have to give vote to the Awami League,” she said while the mammoth crowd raised their hands in a gesture of their supports with huge applause.Highlighting her government’s steps for the development of Bangladesh, the prime minister said the government is taking the country towards uplift and has made all arrangement for food, education, housing and healthcare for the people.“There will not be a single person to remain homeless as we’reconstructing houses for the people through Ashrayan Programme,” she said.The AL president said the government is distributing textbooks free of cost among the students from primary to the secondary levels.“We’re giving elderly allowance, widow allowances and allowance to those abandoned by husbands so that our mothers and sisters don’t live in miseries,” she said.The prime minister said her government is setting up fire stations in all upazilas of the country while the work of establishing a mosque-cum-Islamic cultural centre is underway in every upazila.“We’ve made arrangement for safe drinking water for the people,” she said.The AL chief said the government has taken steps for generating employment for the youths and made arrangement for their training. “We’ve established Kormosangsthan Bank for the youths so that they can take loan without security money,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said the government has taken measures so that the farmers get fair price of their produces.“The people are receiving free healthcare services as we’ve set up community health clinics for them,” she said.
Sony is not afraid to undertake major redesigns of its console hardware. It makes a lot of sense from a manufacturing cost and profit margin perspective. Typically a redesign sees the machine reduced in size due to several of the components inside being merged together, or just produced to fit in a smaller space. This is how we got the PSOne, the PS2 Slim, and most recently the PS3 Slim.New documents appearing at the Federal Trade Commission (FCC) suggest that Sony isn’t quite finished with the design of the PS3. The current PS3 Slim model carries the model number CECH-3000, but the new models is listed with the number CECH-40001x.Clearly Sony has found a cheaper way to make the machine, and the included images also show the 4000 series will be smaller. The image below shows the original PS3, the PS3 Slim, and the PS3 40001x at the front. As you can see, it has got noticeably smaller.What this means is the PS3 4000 series will require less packaging and be lighter than previous models. That in turn saves on shipping costs and after an initial bump due to a change in production, should also mean lower manufacturing costs in the long term.If your current PS3 is starting to struggle, or you just haven’t picked up Sony’s console yet, it might be worth waiting for this new model. Chances are it could allow for a further price drop, and typically Sony’s newer machines use less power, too.Read more at Eurogamer.net
Kolkata: Two bike riders died after they collided with the guard wall of Maa flyover on Wednesday night. The pillion rider fell down on the Park Circus Connector due to the momentum.Though police found helmets on the spot but the officers are not sure if they were wearing them at all.

All patients were treated at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.Brachytherapy is a form of internal radiation therapy in which doctors implant permanent or temporary radioactive sources into the prostate. It confines the radiation to the tumor and reduces radiation exposure to the surrounding healthy tissues. It can be administered either as permanent low dose-rate (LDR) implant, or as temporary high dose-rate (HDR) implant. In this study, 97 men received HDR and 485 received LDR.Of the 582 men studied, 477, or 82 percent reported no complications. The most common complication within four months was lower urinary tract symptoms, which affected 8.4 percent of the patients.Douglas Lee, DO, a radiation oncology resident at Fox Chase, led the study and presented it at an oral session at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Oct. 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas.“There have been several studies of long-term complications associated with brachytherapy, but this is one of the largest analyses of the near-term procedural complications,” Lee said. “Our findings add to the data showing that brachytherapy is safe for men treated at a single institution with expertise in this treatment.”In the United States, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men.

London, UK – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineLondon Oxford Airport has seen a notable increase in the number of heavy jets transiting through the airport in the weeks leading up to the London Olympics. Compared with the same period last year it welcomed 180% more Gulfstreams, Global Express and Falcon 7X aircraft, and saw its first use by Boeing Business Jets due to a London airport reaching capacity. The BBJ, at 77 tonnes, is the biggest aircraft ever to transit at London Oxford Airport.These heavy jets accounted for over 50 slots, destined primarily for the USA and Middle East. The surge in traffic follows investment by the airport’s owners in 2007 to improve its runway bearing strength, allowing it to accept aircraft such as the 55-tonne Embraer Lineage (EMB-190) and larger Airbus types on a regular basis.With London Oxford Airport’s new Thales radar going live at the beginning of July, this summer’s Oxford-bound traffic has also benefitted from enhancements in approach procedures and speed of access to the airport, with separation times between inbound aircraft more than halved, safely allowing a much higher throughput.Sister airport, the Barclays London Heliport, also reported a notable increase in activity in the week before the Games—a 63% increase in what is normally the quieter ‘holiday season’. The only central London landing site permitted for private and chartered helicopters during the Games, the Barclays London Heliport welcomed visitors including Games sponsors and corporate guests.“We all were waiting to see what the ‘Olympics effect’ was going to be this summer,” said James Dillon-Godfray, Business Development Director. “Despite the fact that many UK-based owners of aircraft booked their annual vacations or temporarily migrated overseas over the period, some putting their business jets in for maintenance, this has been compensated for by new, first time users who have come away with a positive impression about Oxford Airport and London Heliport.“Oxford remains outside the Olympics Restricted Zone surrounding London which requires far tighter flight planning rules but also benefits from being outside of the London Terminal Manoeuvring Area (LTMA) which is the busiest airspace in Europe even outside the Olympics. It also boasts better opening hours than many of its peer airports, being able to operate from 06:00 to midnight, seven days a week.”London Oxford Airport and The Barclays London Heliport are wholly owned by the Reuben Brothers. Their investment activities include private equity, real estate ownership and development, which are predominantly based in the United Kingdom and Europe. Businesses include shopping centers, mixed use commercial real estate, data centres, race courses, public houses, hotels and other development projects. The heliport at London Battersea is the UK’s only CAA licensed heliport and a 20-minute helicopter ride from London Oxford Airport.www.oxfordairport.co.ukwww.londonheliport.co.uk
