CVC picks Nine float advisers

first_img PRIVATE equity firm CVC has appointed Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and UBS to advise on the possible initial public offering (IPO) of television network Nine Entertainment, in a deal that could be worth $5bn (£3.2bn).If a float proceeds, it could be the biggest in Australia since the nearly A$10bn IPO of Telstra Corp in 1997 and would exceed last year’s $4bn float of rail-freight firm QR National.No final decision has been made on whether to float Nine, which owns the Nine Network, Australia’s largest magazine publisher ACP, and a 50 per cent stake in website carsales.com, said a market source.“They are doing the hard yards so if and when they do decide to go, then the work has been done. It doesn’t mean a date has been set,” the source added.CVC and UBS declined to comment. Credit Suisse did not return a call for comment, while Goldman Sachs could not immediately be reached.Last month, executives from Nine Entertainment met with Australian fund managers to talk up the group’s earnings prospects, a move seen by investors as the first step towards an IPO.The climate for IPOs has improved recently following the successful float of QR National, which rose more than 10 per cent above its 22 November listing price and is currently 4.7 per cent higher.A float of Nine, which could come as early as April, would be the biggest private-equity float since TPG sold out of retailer Myer in late 2009.

Want to make a million in the market crash? I’d listen to Warren Buffett and buy cheap UK shares

Want to make a million in the market crash? I’d listen to Warren Buffett and buy cheap UK shares See all posts by Harvey Jones This year’s stock market crash has thrown up an unmissable opportunity to buy cheap UK shares. If you are on a quest to make a million before you retire, you need to take advantage of moments like these, as you can pick up some amazing FTSE 100 bargains.It takes courage, though. Stock markets are volatile and the economic outlook is uncertain. Some may prefer to leave their money in cash instead. That is understandable, but also costly. In the longer run, the stock market beats almost every other investment, and definitely cash. If you can buy UK shares when they are cheap, you can turbo-charge your returns.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…Buying undervalued shares after a stock market crash has been a sound move in the past. Warren Buffett, arguably the world’s greatest investor, has always followed this strategy. He likes to buy high-quality businesses when they trade at low prices, then wait for them to recover.I’d buy cheap UK shares todayIt is always better to buy at the bottom of the market cycle, rather than the top. I think we have this opportunity today. Please don’t squander it. As Buffett himself said: “Opportunities come infrequently. When it rains gold, put out the bucket, not the thimble.”Indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 do not move upwards in a nice, even straight line. They never have and never will. Instead, they go through periods of boom and bust.Wise investors look to buy UK shares during the busts, rather than the booms. That way you can buy them at reduced prices. You should then aim to hold for years, or rather decades. With luck, you can sell them later at much higher prices.If we do get a second market crash after you invest, remember this. You have only suffered a paper loss (provided you don’t do anything daft, like sell at the bottom of the market). By investing for the long term, you can ignore short-term volatility, and sleep soundly at night.Warren Buffett has been here beforeIf you buy shares after a market crash, as Buffett likes to do, you have a better chance of making a million. You have to pick your stocks carefully, though, as he does.One mistake investors make is to over diversify, say, by buying a stock in every sector of the FTSE 100. If you do that, you might as well buy a tracker fund. You need to be smarter than that. As Buffett said: “Diversification is a protection against ignorance. It makes very little sense for those who know what they’re doing.”Personally, I would look for companies that offer a product or service that nobody else does, and rivals would struggle to replicate. Given today’s worries, I would also target companies with strong balance sheets, minimal debt, and the strength to continue paying dividends.As always, you should aim to hold for the long term, just like Buffett does. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

The private gallery and house is sited in the hills of the Kangbuk section of Seoul, Korea. The project was designed as an experiment parallel to a research studio on “the architectonics of music.” The basic geometry of the building is inspired by a 1967 sketch for a music score by the composer Istvan Anhalt, “Symphony of Modules,” which was discovered in a book by John Cage titled “Notations.”Save this picture!SketchRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsLightsVibiaCeiling Lights – BIGFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0MetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedThree pavilions; one for entry, one residence, and one event space, appear to push upward from a continuous gallery level below.

Proportions are organized around the series 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55. Views from within the pavilions are framed by the reflecting pool, which is bracketed by gardens that run perpendicular to the skylight strips.

A visitor arrives through a bamboo formed garden wall at the entry court, after opening the front door and ascending a low stair. He or she can turn to see the central pond at eye level and take in the whole of the three pavilions, floating on their own reflections. The interiors of the pavilions are red and charcoal stained wood with the skylights cutting through the wood ceiling.

Asociación psicológica estadounidense conspira en tortura

first_imgUn informe presentado por el Comité Selecto del Senado sobre Inteligencia acerca del uso de tortura por la CIA en Guantánamo y en otros lugares afirma que gran parte de las torturas fueron supervisadas e inspiradas por psicólogos.La Asociación Americana de Psicología respondió a este informe declarando: “La publicación del documento reconoce el derecho de los ciudadanos estadounidenses a saber sobre acciones previas de su gobierno y es la mejor manera de asegurarse de que de ahora en adelante, Estados Unidos se dedique a programas de seguridad nacional que salvaguarden los derechos humanos y cumplan con el derecho internacional. Los nuevos datos facilitados por el informe sobre el alcance y la barbarie de técnicas de tortura utilizados por la CIA son repugnantes y moralmente reprobables”. (apa.org, 9 de diciembre)A pesar de esta moralizadora exención de responsabilidades, James Risen, en su libro “Pay Any Price: Greed, Power, and Endless War” [Pagar cualquier precio: codicia, poder, y guerra infinita], revela que la APA ha modificado su código de ética para permitir ese tipo de interrogatorios. A pesar de los muchos esfuerzos realizados por la Coalición por una Psicología Ética y a otras organizaciones para prohibir la participación de psicólogos con la CIA, el liderazgo de la APA se negó a intervenir en los interrogatorios conjuntos de la CIA y sus psicólogos.Una nota del año 2011 para el libro “Práctica Ética Operacional en Psicología: Militares y Aplicaciones de Inteligencia Nacional”, editado por Carrie H. Kennedy y Thomas J. Williams, ilustra estas prácticas: “El campo de psicología y, en consecuencia, su nivel de práctica, están evolucionando y creciendo a un ritmo rápido. Ahora más que nunca, los conocimientos de psicólogos se emplean diariamente por los miembros de las fuerzas militares, de servicios de inteligencia nacional y de seguridad pública de comunidades”.Risen informa que dos psicólogos, James Mitchell y Bruce Jessen, idearon una lista de técnicas coercitivas para ser utilizados para cuestionar los prisioneros. Personalmente condujeron  interrogatorios torturando detenidos de la  CIA y entrenaron a miles de “técnicos” para hacer lo mismo.En 2005, los dos formaron Mitchell Jessen & Associates para específicamente realizar ese trabajo con la CIA. Entre 2005 y 2009, la firma recaudó 81 millones de dólares de la CIA. La empresa contaba con 120 empleados y trabajó en una serie de instalaciones militares.Tanto Mitchell y Jessen tenían un doctorado y experiencia en áreas relacionadas con las técnicas de interrogatorio y tortura. Sin embargo, tenían vínculos con la CIA y experiencia militar, y habían sido recomendados por sus asociados. Su premiada recomendación para recabar información de los detenidos fue utilizando el concepto de “indefensión aprendida”, que fue desarrollada por E. P. Seligman en su investigación con perros sobre condicionamiento clásico.En 2009, Democracy Now entrevistó al corresponsal nacional de Salon, Mark Benjamin y a la periodista Katherine Eban de Vanity Fair, quienes escribieron artículos en 2007 sobre Mitchell y Jessen. Eban dijo, “Los psicólogos prestaron sus nombres y sus credenciales y su doctorado a este tipo de actividad y fundamentalmente fueron utilizados por la administración Bush para proporcionar una especie de “salir libre de la cárcel” a las personas, como ustedes saben, estaban haciendo estos interrogatorios.” (democracynow.org, 21 de abril de 2009)Benjamin dijo: “no creo que se pueda exagerar el grado en que el Departamento de Justicia se basó en el asesoramiento y el consentimiento y la participación de los psicólogos, no sólo en la elaboración de los programas, sino llevándolos a cabo y argumentando que eran seguros y que no constituían tortura. Quiero decir, que fueron una parte fundamental de este programa, ya sea en la habitación, mientras que estas personas estaban siendo torturadas o viéndolas en una cinta de video. … Mientras haya psicólogos formados en el programa SERE [Supervivencia, Evasión, Resistencia, Escape] durante esos interrogatorios que están diciendo que estos detenidos pueden soportar este tratamiento y que no se perjudican psicológicamente, entonces, no se trata de tortura”.Benjamin señaló también que “en el último par de días la administración de Obama ha anunciado que nadie, ni la gente que lleva a cabo el programa de tortura, ni las personas que diseñaron el programa, ni las personas que autorizaron el programa, ni la gente que dijeron que era legal aunque sabían que francamente no lo era, ninguna de esas personas nunca enfrentarán cargos. El Fiscal General ha anunciado que no sólo eso, sino que el gobierno pagará los gastos legales de la persona que enfrentara cargos en cualquier parte del mundo o que tenga atestiguar frente al Congreso”.Mitchell y Jessen recomendaron la imposición de terror y dolor en los sujetos a fin de obtener información y para que fueran obedientes y maleables para lograr su cooperación. Los dos ya se han jubilado, pero su labor continúa, protegidos por la actual administración y la APA a pesar de las declaraciones. ¿Cómo sucede esto?En la búsqueda de ganancias rápidas que caracteriza al sistema capitalista, cada tecnología y marco teórico está moldeado para ajustarse a los propósitos de quienes están en el poder. Por esa razón, las posiciones más lucrativas en el campo de la investigación científica y la ingeniería, están en el campo militar. El ejército de EUA financia gran parte de la investigación científica y tecnológica tanto dentro como fuera de las paredes de la academia.Las destrezas de los científicos, técnicos de información e ingenieros también se someten a las necesidades de otras industrias corporativas como la farmacéutica y a las grandes compañías de gas y petróleo. No hay ninguna faceta  intelectual, teórica o científica que pueda escapar de las exigencias del régimen de lucro sin el riesgo de perder ingresos y el ostracismo.Como una ciencia, la psicología es una recién llegada relativamente. Ha tenido que competir por un lugar, con otros campos más poderosos como la medicina. Desde la década de 1940, el ejército ha proporcionado un refugio seguro para los psicólogos, empleándolos en su masivo Departamento de Veteranos así como en el Servicio Selectivo, inteligencia y combate.Después del 9/11, cuando la “necesidad” para conseguir “buena inteligencia” de los “enemigos” capturados se volvió más urgente, había prisa por encontrar una excusa científica para tanto la extracción eficaz de información como para la responsabilidad ética. La profesión médica, en su mayor parte, se negó a participar, pero el establecimiento psicológico, que tenía una relación más dependiente con los militares, estuvo dispuesta y lista.Las necesidades humanas bajo el sistema capitalista están superadas por la avaricia corporativa. A pesar de su hipócrita recomendación para la investigación de sus propias prácticas, a la Asociación Americana de Psicología se le debe responsabilizar por su aprobación oficial de la tortura.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Will Courts drag their feet as much as police in Chauncey Bailey murder case?

Bey’s trial was due to begin on 2 August, but it could now be pushed back after his lawyer, Lorna Brown, withdrew from the case over an undisclosed conflict of interest. On 17 May, a superior court in Alameda, California, scheduled a hearing for 21 June to hear arguments by Bey’s new defence team for a possible change of venue.“We hope there will be no further delays,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The hearing scheduled for 2 August would coincide with the third anniversary of Bailey’s murder. Enough time has gone by. As Bey is being investigated on suspicion of ordering the murder of witnesses in this case, it seems obvious the trial should be held as soon as possible. We once again call for a federal investigation into this case .Bailey was gunned down while walking to work on the morning of 2 August, 2007 in Oakland, California. Prior to his death, he had been investigating financial and legal problems at Your Black Muslim Bakery, a local business and community organization of which Bey had recently assumed the leadership.Devaughndre Broussard, a 19-year-old bakery employee who was arrested the day after the murder, confessed to killing Bailey because he thought the journalist’s work could hurt the bakery. He later changed his story, accusing Bey of ordering Bailey’s murder and telling him to take the blame. The Oakland police strangely paid little attention to Bey in the early stages of the investigation.Bey has repeatedly denied any involvement in the murder even after a video showed him describing the shooting to fellow inmates in a prison interrogation room. The video was released by journalists with the Chauncey Bailey Project (http://www.chaunceybaileyproject.org/). Bey does acknowledge that the murder weapon was in his possession.Under Californian law, both Bey and Broussard are facing a possible death sentence for Bailey’s murder. Reporters Without Borders reiterates its opposition to the death penalty.
