However, the rate for November alone picked up to 2.4 per cent, its highest since February 2009. Share UK jobless rate rises last_img read more

Citi may break up EMI

first_imgWednesday 2 February 2011 8:39 pm whatsapp Show Comments ▼ CITIGROUP executives are considering plans to break up iconic record label EMI, despite its chief executive’s wish to keep it whole, sources told City A.M. yesterday.The bank, which has taken EMI out of private equity hands after declaring its £3.4bn debt unsustainable, will not fight to keep the company in one piece if buyers for different parts come forward, sources said.This runs counter to protestations by EMI’s chief executive Roger Faxon (below), who told employees its recorded music and music publishing arms should stay united.Sources close to Citi told City A.M. that while Faxon was a valued stakeholder and his position was clear, the bank “owed it to shareholders to consider all the options.”But Faxon defended EMI’s unified model yesterday. “Global rights management is the future, and it takes both parts of the business working together to achieve that future,” he said in an email. Private equity house KKR, owner of music rights management company BMG, is current frontrunner to buy EMI, followed by EMI’s long-term suitor Warner Music. But there is no shortage of interest in its parts, and Citi is keen to start to recoup some of the £2.2bn loss it has incurred on EMI.Industry giants such as Universal Music, the world’s largest record label owner and music publisher, would snap up EMI’s recorded music catalogue, which include artists such as The Beatles and Kylie Minogue (top). Sources close to Universal Music told City A.M. that while it was barred from bidding for EMI for competition reasons, “parts of it would be attractive” in a break-up. “Universal may well be interested in some of the parts if they were to become available,” one source said. BMG, which has expressed interest in buying Warner’s music publishing arm Warner/Chappell, may prefer EMI’s music publishing business instead. “That may be marginally more attractive to it than Warner/Chappell,” sources said. Jon Moulton, founder of Better Capital, placed odds of two to one on EMI being broken up. “I think Citi would take cash for anything it could,” he said.But Impala, the European lobby group for independent record labels, yesterday threatened to campaign against any plan to merge EMI with a competitor, saying it would lead to too much “concentration” in the industry. The group managed to tie up Sony Music and BMG’s eventual merger in 2004 for three years in the courts.

Rugby trip advice: how to get your car ready for a rugby adventure

first_imgParked up: Fans gear up for a Test in the Twickenham carparkPrepare for the emergencyUnless you have a full breakdown cover or your insurance plan includes a roadside recovery, get emergency numbers saved on your mobile phone (write them down by hand as well). Pack the first-aid kit (add your personal medications if you suffer from chronic illnesses) and the tool kit for a simple repair (car jack, tyre repair kit, jumper cables, adjustable wrench, funnel, screwdrivers, socket wrench etc.). Think out the scenario – what you will do if you get a flat tyre. It’s good to have a spare tyre in proper condition and tob be capable of mounting it by yourself. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Although rugby is played in many countries all over the world, Britain is the most rugby-keen among them. A great number of rugby fans travel across the UK to watch their favourite team play. Touring the UK by car is the fastest and the most comfortable way to get to different game locations, but as you don’t want unpleasant emergencies to happen on the road, here is how to prepare your vehicle for a big rugby trip – tips shared by, the nation’s leading dealership of tyres and car accessories.Find out the roads and get your tyres readyKnowing exactly what kind of terrain you are going to encounter and equipping your car accordingly will protect you from unfortunate emergencies that can spoil your trip. If you are just travelling from city to city without turning off-road, make sure your tyres have the minimum legal tread depth of 1.6 mm and that they are correctly inflated. Use your tyre pressure gauge to check the pressure in all four tyres and compare it with the recommendations by your vehicle’s manufacturer (can be found on the driver’s door jamb or in the owner’s manual). You need to stick to those recommendations to prevent tyre tread from wearing down irregularly and heat from building up inside tyres and damaging them eventually. Both under-inflation and over-inflation are harmful to tyres and can cause a tyre failure.Get your tyres ready: has you coveredIf you plan to turn off the road and navigate any outskirts, make sure your tyres are up for the task. Consider all-terrain tyres if you are going to spend a big part of your trip off-roading.Rugby is predominantly a winter game, so chances are that you’ll have to hit the road at near-freezing temperatures. Keep in mind that tread on summer tyres hardens as the temperature drops below seven degrees Centigrade, so if you wish to have a safe trip, switch over to winter tyres, especially if you plan some off-roading during the trip. Winter tyres offer a better grip on ice and snow and their breaking distance is half as much (in comparison with summer tyres). With rugby season now here, it’s time to hit the road. Here are some travel tips for the enthusiastic tourists driving from game to gamecenter_img Know how your car worksWe don’t mean you must be able to fix the car’s engine to be eligible for the trip, but you need to know the basics: what do those lights on the dashboard mean, how those buttons work, how to check the levels of fluids. Before hitting the road, inspect your headlights, windscreen wipers, and brakes. Make sure all liquids (anti-freeze, transmission and brake fluids, and motor oil) are fresh enough and are at the level between ‘min’ and ‘max’. Add to them if needed. Test your air conditioning for the hot season and the heater for the cold one. Also check belts and hoses for signs of excessive wear such as cracks, looseness, or friability and replace worn ones as these parts are key in electrical systems, power steering, and air conditioning. Extreme route: Hopefully your rugby trip won’t be so rocky! last_img read more

Ag Secretary says No Choice but to Pass a Farm Bill…

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Secretary says No Choice but to Pass a Farm Bill this… Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Vilsack farm bill updateWho and what would benefit from a new farm bill? It has been over 2 years and now time is running short yet again for Congress to get a bill to the President by the end of this year, so the many beneficiaries of a farm bill have been outlined in a new report from the White House Rural Council.USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack discussed the report Thursday and was almost dismissive of the thought of Congress unable to get a bill done in 2013.“This isn’t a situation where you have a choice,” he said. “The reality is that we have to have a clear indication from Congress that this is going to get done. Obviously there are some who are skeptical about that given the fact that we’ve already seen one year with inaction, and people say we can always extend.”But there are issues with another extension as Vilsack outlined.“With an extension there come costs and you don’t get the reforms that this bill that is being considered by the conference committee will provide. It does not provide the savings that I think is important to members of Congress as they deal with deficit reduction challenges. It in fact will likely cost additional resources and it will be difficult to identify those additional resources. So the key here is to focus on getting the job done and understanding that there is a consequence if the job doesn’t get done.”That consequence is that USDA will be required by law to reinstitute the farm policies of the 1940’s.Vilsack believes the all important safety net for farmers will be dominated by crop insurance and not target prices.“People choose to farm not just because they love it, but because there are risk management tools in a farm bill that basically minimize and create an acceptable level of risk associated with farming,” he explained. “You have no control over floods. You have no control over drought. You have no control over snowstorms, but you can control and mitigate the consequences of the those natural disasters through appropriate safety net programs.”It is Vilsack’s hope that the council report will be consumed by members of congress so they are reminded of the wide scope of impact of a farm bill and agriculture itself.The full White House Rural Council report is online here.

Day care owner charged with child abuse after allegedly hiding 26 children behind false wall

first_imgiStock(COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.) — Earlier this week, Colorado Springs, Colorado, day care owner Carla Faith, 58, was charged with child abuse and attempt to influence a public servant after 26 toddlers were found behind a false wall at Faith’s day care facility last month.The day care attached as a secondary building from Faith’s home underwent a welfare check on Nov. 13 when authorities came across two adults and more than 20 children under the age of three. The search began after a series of complaints that Faith “was housing more children in their care than their licensed allowed,” the City of Colorado Springs said in a statement.Colorado Springs officer Janel Langdon-Issac discovered the children and two adults in the basement of Faith’s home after hearing children’s music, despite Faith denying of having a lower ground floor, according to ABC affiliate KRDO.During the search, Officer Jordan Parker bumped into a wall and felt it move, KRDO reported. When Officer Parker pushed against the wall, authorities discovered a stairwell leading to a finished basement area.“I spend a minute or two in my car with a tear in my eye because I’m trusting somebody else,” said Ethan Steinberg, an uncle of an enrolled child, in an interview with KRDO. “ It took about an hour until [police] realized where the kids were and that breaks my heart because I don’t know if my niece was down there.”KRDO also reports that Faith was caught in a similar situation during the late ’90s but in California.“It’s just not something that’s part of our application process, nor do we really have the authority to require that information,” said Erin Mewhinney, the Division Director Of Early Childhood Care and Learning, in an interview with KRDO. “We’re working with the state board of human services to allow the department the authority to require child abuse and neglect records from other states of an applicant is coming in from another state.”Faith’s day care license only permitted her to care for up to six children between the ages of zero and 13, more specifically, only two of these children could be under the age of two, according to an affidavit obtained by KRDO.“It’s so hard to trust your children with people and we felt we could really trust them,” said parent Jeanette Conde to KRDO. “ I’m completely betrayed, every parent that I’ve talked to, we all feel completely betrayed.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
