Nadal Federer Djokovic remain ones to beat at US Open

first_imgNew York: While a host of young rivals hope to disrupt the dominance of the “Big Three” in men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer remain the US Open favorites. The year’s final Grand Slam showdown starts Monday on the Flushing Meadows hardcourts with top-ranked Djokovic, 20-time Grand Slam champion Federer and Spanish superstar Nadal having combined to win the past 11 Grand Slam titles. Federer, 38, doesn’t see a problem with the dominance by the sport’s elder statesmen, who together own 54 of the past 65 Slam titles. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh “I don’t think it’s a problem, per se,” Federer said. “Now that Novak, Rafa and me are healthy again, Andy (Murray) also slowly coming back again, has made it much harder for young guys to come through. “They are definitely knocking on the door big-time now. I think that’s very encouraging for those who want to see somebody else win. I think also Novak’s domination, Rafa’s domination is also not normal for the game of tennis. “I think there’s going to be chances moving forward, but it’s not surprising with the type of tennis they’ve been playing in recent years.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Third-seeded Federer also throws in a chance for Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka, who like Britain’s injured Murray has won three Slam crowns during the “Big Three” reign, but figures a familiar face will be lifting the US Open trophy. “Yeah, it seems like the same guys are the favorites again this time around,” Federer said. “It will be a surprise if anybody else won.” Defending champion Djokovic, seeking a 17th career Grand Slam title, has won four of the past five Slams, denied only by Nadal’s French Open win in June. The 32-year-old Serbian says he has adjusted to the extra pressure of defending over the years. “It’s a paramount challenge to defend a Grand Slam title,” he said. “These are the tournaments you want to win the most. This is where you want to shine.” Nadal, 33, has made an impressive run with titles at Rome, the French Open and Montreal and a Wimbledon semi-final loss to Federer. “Arrive to the big events with good feelings helps,” Nadal said. “Positive feeling, positive memory on my mind. That helps for the confidence. “For the moment I am feeling well. I am practicing well during the whole week. Now remain a couple of days to just push a little bit more and try to start the tournament in a good way.” Second-ranked Nadal, an 18-time Grand Slam winner who took his 12th French Open title in June, isn’t too excited over Federer and Djokovic both being in the opposite half of the draw. “I have to win my matches to have an advantage because I only can meet them in the semifinals,” Nadal said. “I have plenty of work before that to know if I have an advantage or not.” – Medvedev, Thiem surging – =========================== Russia’s Daniil Medvedev has enjoyed a stellar US Open run-up with a win at Cincinnati and runner-up efforts at Washington and Montreal. “I don’t consider myself as one of the favorites just because at this moment of my career I haven’t even been in a quarter-final of a Slam,” Medvedev said. “If I get to the quarter-final, it’s going to be already a step forward and I’m going to be really happy about it. “When I play my best tennis I can beat basically everybody and that’s what I need to keep doing here.” Austrian fourth seed Dominic Thiem lost to Nadal in the Roland Garros final and will be a threat. “Every year he’s improving,” Nadal said. “Every day he’s very solid and every year is more solid. “He has everything to win important events. He already is winning important events. He’s a very, very hard worker. Just a question of time that he achieve all his goals.” Germany’s sixth-ranked Alexander Zverev warns not to ignore other lower seeds such as Japan’s seventh-seeded Kei Nishikori, the 2014 US Open runner-up, and Greece’s eighth-ranked Stefanos Tsitsipas. “There are a few guys that have a real shot to win it,” Zverev said. “Obviously the ‘Big Three’ we don’t need to talk about. Of course, Novak is the big favorite, no question about it, but there are other guys that have been playing great tennis. I think those guys will be able to do some damage.” Federer, however, wouldn’t mind stretching his lead over Djokovic and Nadal in the men’s all-time Grand Slam title race. “I’m not putting extra pressure on myself. I know it’s going to be tough,” Federer said. “I feel like I’m part of that group who can do it.”last_img read more

Controversy over Religious Affiliation of Potential PJD Candidate: Jew or Muslim?

Rabat- It was rumored recently when Moroccan lawyer Isaac Charia asked to join the Islamist party PJD that Charia is a Jew. However, Charia stated subsequently that he is not a Jew, but a Muslim. One of his colleagues in the Rabat Bar Association has said that “Charia has disavowed his religion,” a journalist for Akhbar Alyaoum claims that Charia just wants “fame,” while a PJD official has commented that the controversy “is childish.” MWN investigated this controversy. Contradictory StatementsEverything started when Akhbar Alyaoum stated in its April 19th issue that Charia is a ”Jewish Moroccan lawyer who wants to join the ruling Islamist party PJD”.The article, which was published on the front page of Akhbar Alyaoum, was entitled “Precedent… a Jew  Prepares to Join the Head of Parliament’s Islamist party.”  A few days later, in interviews with many local news websites and newspapers, Charia harshly criticized the media that had promoted rumors that he is Jewish, confirming that he is a Muslim.In a recent phone call with Morocco World News, Charia explained that he is not a Jew  “My name is Isaac Charia, my father is Tayeb Charia, and my grandfather‘s name was Ahmed Charia, the son of Mohamed Charia…,” he said.  “I am from a Muslim family from Andalusia in southern Spain.”He added, “As for my first name Isaac, there are plenty of Muslims who name their sons Isaac. This name is not associated only with the Jewish people.”Issac Charia and the Journalist if Akhbar Alyaoum In his previous interview with Akhbar Alyaoum, when a journalist asked him, “why did you choose to join the Islamist party although you are a Jew?,”Isaac responded that he had decided to join the PJD because he was drawn to the party’s principles against corruption.  Yet, Isaac did not at the time deny that he is a Jew.Amal Aboulaala, the journalist for Akhbar Alyaoum who interviewed Charia, confirmed to Morocco World News that Isaac did not then deny that he is Jewish. She stressed that “he avoided talking about his religion.”“Isaac Charia intended to provide camouflage in his responses to the questions about his religion, because he is trying to achieve fame,” the journalist asserted.Replying to the journalist’s statements, Charia said that Amal Aboulaala misunderstood what he was trying to say. “I avoided talking about my religion, not because I am a Jew, but because I wanted to confirm that PJD is a political party, and we should separate politics and religion.” Charia and his colleagues in the Bar Association Media reports aside, we wondered what is the perception of Charia among his colleagues in the Syndicate in Rabat? Do the lawyers know anything about his religious affiliation?To find answers to these questions, Morocco World News talked to one of his colleagues in the bar Association.Abdelmaoula M., a lawyer in the Rabat Bar Association who knows Isaac Charia personally, told Morocco World News that Charia always avoids talking about his religion with his colleagues.“None of the lawyers in the Rabat syndicate knows about Isaac’s religion,” said Marouri. “I read Akhbar Alyaoum’s interview  with Isaac Charia on April 19th, in which the newspaper reported that he is a Jewish lawyer who wanted to join the Development and Justice party. Later, I was surprised to watch other interviews of Isaac published on many news websites, in which he was stressing that he is Muslim,” he explained.“All I can say about him is that he has disavowed his religion… whether Isaac is Jewish or Muslim, he has disavowed his religion, for unknown reasons.” Issac Charia and the story behind the rumor Regarding the rumor that he is a Jew, Charia explained to Morocco World News that he had sent an open letter to the PJD officials requesting to join the party.“I explained in my letter that I am a liberal and modern Muslim man who believes that we should separate politics and religion. I also expressed that I have ideas that oppose the party’s principles. But, I am interested in the honest willingness of the PJD to fight corruption in the country.” He added, “Yet, I was surprised later that my letter was published on the party’s official website without requesting my permission. My letter was headed with a title that said ‘Precedent… a liberal activist wants to join the Islamist party,’” Isaac explained.Charia explained that PJD officials addressed his article to the media, “in order to paint my request for a liberal activist to join the PJD as a victory for the Islamic party.”Reading the Islamic creed, Isaac renewed his condemnation of those claiming that he is Jewish, and affirmed that he is Muslim. “There is no god but God, and Mohammed is his prophet,” he said.Issac Charia and PJD officials Charia told Morocco World News that his letter is a challenge to PJD officials, saying “I want to know if the PJD can accept people who oppose the party’s principles, and I am still waiting for a response from party officials.”Morocco World News tried to contact Bouanou Abdellah, the president of the PJD in the House of Representatives, but Bouanou refused to comment on the issue, calling the controversy “childish.”© Morocco World News.

Security Council approves toughest resolution yet against DPR Korea

In the resolution, the 15-member Council seeks to cap refined petroleum products up to 500,000 barrels beginning in October, and up to 2 million barrels per year starting in January for a period of one year. Also the resolution prohibits UN Member States from providing work authorizations for DPRK nationals unless “is required for the delivery of humanitarian assistance, denuclearization or any other purpose,” consistent with other resolutions on the topic.Building on resolution 1874 (2009), the Council also gives countries the right to inspect ships with the consent of the countries where the ships are registered, “if they have information that provides reasonable grounds to believe that the cargo of such vessels contains items the supply, sale, transfer or export of which is prohibited.”In addition, the Council banned textile imports, including fabrics and partially completed apparel, beginning 90 days from the adoption of the resolution. The resolution follows the condemnation by the Council of the nuclear test carried out by DPRK on 3 September of this year and its violation of eight resolutions dating back to 2006 which could have “large-scale regional security implications.”“The proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, as well as their means of delivery, constitutes a threat to international peace and security,” the Council said in today’s text.Welcoming the resolution, UN Secretary-General António Guterres underscored the importance of maintaining unity in the Security Council in tackling security challenges on the Korean Peninsula and beyond.“This firm action by the Security Council sends a clear message that the DPRK must comply fully with its international obligations,” said the Secretary-General in a statement attributable to his spokesperson. He urged the DPRK leadership to abide by the decisions of the Council and allow space for the resumption of dialogue. read more

Could Star Wars cost Skellig Michael its Unesco World Heritage status

first_imgFILMING BEGINS TODAY on scenes from the new Star Wars film on Skellig Michael off the coast of Kerry.However, concerns have been raised about the potential impact that the film crews will have on the site, with Birdwatch Ireland particularly concerned that the filming is coming in the middle of breeding season for puffins and other birds.The Unesco World Heritage Centre has confirmed to TheJournal.ie that it has asked for information on the granting of filming rights at the sixth century monastic site, but a spokesperson said that they could not speculate what would happen.Roni Amelan, a spokesperson for the World Heritage Centre, told TheJournal.ie that the lightsabers and droids may cause damage, but that doesn’t automatically mean a loss of Skellig Michael’s status.“The issue not with filming, it’s with what effect that filming will have.“We can speculate but don’t know yet. If you look at the site and the features for which it was inscribed, you have to look at the effect it will have. We are specific that properties on the list are there for specific features, but all sites are vulnerable. You often have damage to a site, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it would be taken off the list.“It’s very rare that a pristine site will be inscribed.“It’s about getting all of the information.”In the original decision, the committee outlined why Skellig Michael was chosen and no mention of wildlife or scenery is made.The Committee decided to inscribe the nominated property on the basis of cultural criteria (iii) and (iv) considering that the site is of outstanding universal value being an exceptional, and in many respects unique example of an early religious settlement deliberately sited on a pyramidal rock in the ocean, preserved because of a remarkable environment. It illustrates, as no other site can, the extremes of a Christian monasticism characterizing much of North Africa, the Near East and Europe.Only two sites have ever been removed from the Unesco World Heritage List; the first a sanctuary for oryx (a type of antelope) in Oman, the second the Dresden Elbe Valley.In the Oman case, the size of the sanctuary was decreased by 90%, meaning that the oryx were forced to live in captivity. In Dresden, the construction of a four-lane road bridge was found to have altered the valley sufficiently to warrant its removal from the list.In both cases, Amelan says, the sites were “fundamentally changed”.Read: Star Wars filming begins on Skellig Michael as exciting footage emergeslast_img read more

Food News Media Launches BToB Restaurant Title FSR

first_imgNothing beats a well-rounded product platform. So says Greg Sanders, group publisher of Food News Media, which just launched a new print title called FSR that targets the full-service restaurant industry and is designed to compliment an existing Web-based brand called Restaurant Management, which will soon be rebranded to match the magazine. The new magazine, which will debut in November, will have an initial circulation of 24,000 and will be published bimonthly. Food News Media has targeted the quick-service, or fast-food, restaurant market with QSR since 1997. With the launch of FSR, Sanders says the company now targets the two main industry verticals. While Restaurant Management was first launched as a digital platform to serve the FSR market, the company quickly determined there needed to be another facet. “What we discovered is that while digital has grown, it works best when it’s coupled with print,” he says.   “This might sound esoteric, but the restaurant industry, even in a downturn, continues to innovate with new products, menu items and concepts,” he says. “We believe there’s room in that space for reporting on those innovations. We were doing that with the digital platform, but print is still, from our experience, a highly valued commodity both for marketers and for readers. If we’re going to have a complete offering, print has to be a part of it.”There are other brands targeting the same market, including Nation’s Restaurant News and Restaurant Hospitality from Penton and Restaurant Business, published by CSP Information Group, which was just acquired by Redwood Investments, an investment firm led by Hanley-Wood founder Michael Wood and his son Mike Wood, Jr.last_img read more

Northeast India flood kills 40 threatening rhonos

first_img.Floods in northeast India that have killed at least 40 people and displaced nearly 1.5 million have also inundated a national park that is home to the world’s largest concentration of one-horned rhinoceros.The Brahmaputra river, which flows from China down to India and then through Bangladesh, has burst its banks after torrential monsoon rains, swamping more than 2,500 villages in India’s Assam state over the past two weeks.Prime minister Narendra Modi has expressed his anguish over the human suffering, with thousands of people seeking shelter in more than 300 relief camps. Authorities have declared a “maximum health alert” to stop the spread of disease.Efforts are also underway to help the rhinos and other wildlife put in danger when flood waters swamped the Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site.”More than 90 percent of the Kaziranga National Park is under water,” Assam forest minister Pramila Rani Brahma told Reuters.The 430 sq km park is home to the world’s largest number of the one-horned rhinoceros, with an estimated 2,500 out of a total population of some 3,000.”Two rhino calves have drowned and up to 15 deer perished in the high floods,” Brahma said.Animals are seeking refuge on high ground, including hills outside the park, she said.But when the animals move to smaller areas of higher ground to escape the floods they become more vulnerable to poachers. They also face increasing danger of being hit by vehicles if they take refuge on roads that often run along embankments.”Special barricades have been put along the highway and forest guards are asking drivers to drive under 40 km an hour,” a park warden said, adding that a few deer had been hit by speeding trucks.The water level in the Brahmaputra is expected to keep rising until the end of this week and should then stabilize, provided there is no more heavy rain, the Central Water Commission said.last_img read more

The Herd Hierarchy after NFL Week 4

first_imgCheck back next week and see who’s rising and who’s falling in The Herd Hierarchy after a massive Week 5..@ColinCowherd‘s NFL Power Rankings. pic.twitter.com/zFUp38RA1y— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) October 5, 2016 After all the games from the week are in the book, Colin releases his weekly NFL Power Rankings. It’s The Herd Hierarchy. There’s a lot of movement in the Top 10 this week, with a surprise team making their first appearance, and a new team grabbing the top spot.The Vikings are rolling. Tom Brady is finally free. And the Rams are for real.Often imitated, but never duplicated, it’s The Herd Hierarchy after 4 weeks of the 2016 NFL season.10. L.A. Rams – Colin doesn’t understand how the Rams are here, but here they are. The Rams are 3-1 and tied for the NFC West lead despite being last in Yards Per Play (4.62), and Yards per Game (269.0). So, who are they? Why are The Rams here? The Rams Defense, led by all-world tackle Aaron Donald, is third in the NFL in takeaways (9), and a legit force. Case Keenum has made #1 pick Jared Goff an afterthought. Since Week 14 of last season, he’s 6-2, and tied for the best winning percentage amongst all NFL quarterbacks. How long can they keep winning? Who knows. But, they’ve been better than anyone expected.That late-game Keenum MAGIC?!Yup. It’s happening.And the @RamsNFL just took the lead in Arizona. #LAvsAZ https://t.co/0L3fP7VWBk— NFL (@NFL) October 2, 2016 5. Philadelphia Eagles – Rookie Carson Wentz has shattered the quarterback learning curve, and is an early season MVP candidate for the 3-0 Eagles. Philly is 1st in Time of Possession, and 2nd in the NFL with 30.7 Points Per Game. Colin is a believer in first year head coach Doug Pederson, who looks like an elite coach so far. The Eagles look to keep the momentum rolling in Week 5 after an early season bye week.Shot 8 – Perfect 3-lvl stretch. Great poise by Wentz (subtle move in pocket) & great block by Sproles – not just caching passes on 3rd down! pic.twitter.com/SGztA8xZCG— Fran Duffy (@fduffy3) September 27, 2016 3. Denver Broncos – The last two times the Broncos started 4-0, they made it to the Super Bowl. Colin still has questions about the Broncos offense, which may start rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch this week. He doesn’t have any such questions about their defense, led by quarterback terrorist Von Miller. They’re 1st in the NFL in Sacks and Yards Per Play, 5th in Points Allowed Per Game, and giving up the second least Passing Yards Per Game  in the league (169).ANOTHER turnover forced by the @Broncos defense…When will it stop? #Broncos #DENvsTB https://t.co/CNhcSSCksE— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) October 2, 2016 4. Seattle Seahawks – The Seahawks are 3-1, but have struggled with a reorganized offensive line and a hobbled Russell Wilson. The Seahawks secured a huge 10-point road win against the Jets at MetLife in Week 4. Colin is still cautious, because their 3 wins have come against NFL bottom feeders with a combined record of 3-9. The Seahawk defense has been keeping them in close games. They’re 2nd in the NFL with 4.53 yards per game, 4th in sacks, and 3rd in the league with 13.5 Points Per Game allowed.One hand is as good as two if you’re Jimmy Graham ?@Seahawks v @nyjets highlights on BBC Two NOW ?#BBCNFL #Seahawks #Jets pic.twitter.com/c16V3oW4eS— #OnlyInTheNFL (@NFLUK) October 4, 2016 7. Dallas Cowboys – Dallas is 3-1 behind rookie Dak Prescott, who’s 131 pass attempts without an interception to start a career is 2nd only to Tom Brady (162).  He’s also been extending drives. His 50% 3rd down conversion rate is the best in the NFL. Ezekiel Elliott started slow, but leads the NFL in rushing (412 yards). The Cowboys young roster enters the toughest portion of their schedule, facing the Bengals, Packers, Eagles and Steelers over the next 5 weeks.Ezekiel Elliott is going to be a legend for the Cowboys… #FeedZeke pic.twitter.com/A8PPZvgfg3— Buckeye Videos+ (@BuckeyeVideos) October 3, 2016 8. Oakland Raiders – Colin’s preseason prediction that the Raiders would finish 10-6 and win the AFC West is right on track. He still doesn’t think they’re a Super Bowl team. The Raiders 3 -1 start is their best since their last Super Bowl appearance in 2002. The Silver and Black, led by emerging franchise quarterback David Carr is 2nd in the NFL in Yards Per Play, and 3rd in total offense. The Raiders o-line has only allowed two sacks on the year.What would you name this @RAIDERS play ft. @derekcarrqb to @KingCrab15?Tweet us! Use #NTPCrabtree https://t.co/KVdQMw77gg— NFL Now (@NFLNow) October 2, 2016 1. Minnesota Vikings – Colin has been heavy on Minnesota since the Sam Bradford trade, and he hasn’t been disappointed. Bradford has 8 touchdown passes against 0 interceptions on the season. The last time the Vikings were 4-0, they made it to the NFC Championship (2009). They have the youngest of the elite NFL defenses, and lead the NFL with a +10 turnover differential through 4 weeks. They’ve held opponents under 20 points in 8 straight games, which is the longest streak in the league. The Vikings have a Super Bowl roster, and are the new #1 in The Herd Hierarchy.

Pittsburgh Steelers – Big Ben and the Steelers have featured a heavy dose of big plays. They’re 3-1 for the 5th time since 2005, with their only loss on the year coming at the hands of the surprising Eagles. 3 of the last 4 times they started 3-1, they made it to the Super Bowl. All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell was impressive in his return from a 3 game suspension, racking up 144 yards against the Chiefs. Pittsburgh  49% 3rd down conversion rate is 2nd in the NFL. The biggest liability for the Steelers has been their 30th ranked pass defense, which was exposed against the Eagles..@L_Bell26 looks to be in top form in his season debut ?Yet another weapon for the @steelers. #KCvsPIThttps://t.co/KPxM2cKy4T— NFL Network (@nflnetwork) October 3, 2016 2. New England Patriots – The Pats are 3-1 through 4 games with Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett under center. This week they’ll slightly upgrade  when Tom Brady makes his return from his 4-game Deflategate suspension.  Defensive leader Rob Ninkovich also returns from a 4-game suspension. Gronk only has 1 catch so far this season, and has been limited by a nagging hamstring injury. He’ll need to get healthy for the Patriots to make a Super Bowl run, but don’t expect Belichick to rush him along with New England already in the driver seat for the division.Tom Brady loosens up at practice with some downfield passing. pic.twitter.com/VzRjyIz4BZ— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) October 5, 2016 9. Atlanta Falcons – Colin hates dome teams, but Matty Ice has been a man on fire, leading the most potent offense in the league through 4 weeks. He leads the NFL in passer rating, completion percentage, pass yards, and passing touchdowns. The Falcons have scored the 5th most points through 4 games of any NFL team since the merger with 152.  Julio Jones has been the best wideout in the NFL this season. Colin has been slow to jump on the Falcons, but he’s coming around.Here is @M_Ryan02 and @juliojones_11 both setting franchise records.#JetJones – 300 yds rec#MattyIce – 503 passhttps://t.co/tHNYzU09OA— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) October 2, 2016last_img read more

Chiquita gets takeover proposal that would kill Fyffes deal

first_imgRelated posts:Banana giant Chiquita rejects Brazilian takeover bid Chinese leader’s visit has big implications for Latin America Whole Foods’ responsibly grown rating system labels Costa Rican bananas grown at EARTH University as ‘Best’ New strain of banana fungus threatens world harvests NEW YORK — Chiquita Brands International, owner of the namesake banana label, received an unsolicited $611 million takeover proposal that envisages the company scrapping its pending merger with Irish competitor Fyffes.Brazilian juice maker Cutrale Group and financial conglomerate Safra Group said Monday in a joint statement they are offering $13 a share for Charlotte, North Carolina-based Chiquita. The proposal is 29 percent more than Chiquita’s closing share price on Aug. 8. and isn’t subject to financing conditions, Cutrale and Safra said.The proposed bid jeopardizes the Fyffes merger that would lower Chiquita’s tax bill by moving its headquarters from the U.S. to Ireland. Cutrale, a closely held company controlled by Brazil’s José Luis Cutrale, is partnering with banks controlled by Joseph Safra, Brazil’s second-richest man, to challenge the Fyffes tie-up.“To have a new bid at such a high premium come out of left field is quite surprising,” David Holohan, an analyst at Merrion Capital in Dublin, said by phone Monday. “The market clearly is attributing value to the new bid as opposed to the old tie-up between Fyffes and Chiquita.”Cutrale controls more than one-third of the $5 billion orange-juice market, and also has global operations in apples, peaches, lemons and soybeans, according to the statement.“This platform offers Chiquita extensive experience in all aspects of the fruit and juice value chain,” Cutrale and Safra said in the statement.Safra has more than $200 billion of assets under management and operates banks in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, according to the statement.Joseph Safra, 75, has a net worth of $13.2 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. The majority of his fortune comes from his sole ownership of a banking empire whose flagship is São Paulo-based Banco Safra. Most of the rest comes from a wealth management company built around his $2.1 billion acquisition of Switzerland’s Bank Sarasin.“If we are able to proceed on a timely basis with due diligence and discussions, we will be in a position to close the transaction before the end of the year, within the same timeframe you have indicated for the Fyffes transaction,” Cutrale and Safra said in a letter to Chiquita’s management, a copy of which was included in the statement.Brian Bell, an external spokesman for Fyffes, declined to comment. Ed Lloyd, a Chiquita spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to a call and email seeking comment.The Chiquita-Fyffes deal, which was announced in March, would bring together two of the world’s oldest fruit importers to create the biggest banana company, with operations spanning the Americas, Europe and Asia.Cutrale decided to make the proposal to Chiquita after the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta dismissed a human rights case against the fruit importer on July 24, said a person familiar with the matter.Chiquita was sued by thousands of Colombians who contend Chiquita financed the United Self Defense Forces of Colombia, or AUC, a paramilitary organization accused of committing war crimes and killing thousands of Colombians during the conflict with guerrillas from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.The AUC was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. in 2001, and the company pleaded guilty in 2007 to U.S. criminal charges stemming from the payments. It paid a $25 million fine.When the lawsuit was dismissed, Cutrale figured there was no longer a legal risk in acquiring Chiquita, said the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.Chiquita also has stabilized its financial performance, the person said. Chiquita reported an $18 million second-quarter profit, its first in four quarters. Profit in the quarter was down from $31.1 million a year earlier.Chiquita-Fyffes plans to domicile in Ireland, even though Fyffes is the smaller of the two companies, to take advantage of a lower corporate tax rate, a practice known as inversion that has been criticized by members of the U.S. Congress and the Obama administration. A Senate bill meant to deter inversions would retroactively affect eight pending deals, including Chiquita-Fyffes.Cutrale and Safra said their proposed acquisition of Chiquita is “without the execution risk and uncertainty inherent in” the Fyffes transaction.Kaskey reported from Houston, Griffin from Dublin.© 2014, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

path: It draws its energy from the radioactivity of uranium in the rock in the mine The radiation from decaying uranium nuclei breaks apart sulfur and water molecules in the stone producing molecular fragments such as sulfate and hydrogen peroxide that are excited with internal energy The microbe then takes in these molecules siphons off their energy and spits them back out Most of the energy produced from this process powers the bacterium’s reproduction and internal processes but a portion of it also goes to repairing damage from the radiation Atri thinks an extraterrestrial life form could easily make use of a similar system The radiation might not come from radioactive materials on the planet itself but rather from galactic cosmic rays (GCRs)—high-energy particles that careen through the universe after being flung out of a supernova They’re everywhere even on Earth but our planet’s magnetic field and atmosphere shields us from most GCRs Desulforudis audaxviator thrive using radiation from uranium as an energy source deep in the gold mine they call home NASA The surfaces of other planets like Mars are much more susceptible to cosmic rays because of their thin atmospheres and in the case of Mars its lack of a magnetic field Atri argues GCRs could reach the Red Planet’s surface with enough energy left to power a tiny organism This could also be the case on any world with a negligible atmosphere: Pluto Earth’s moon Jupiter’s moon Europa Saturn’s moon Enceladus and theoretically countless more outside our solar system He does note though that because GCRs don’t deliver nearly as much energy as the sun GCR-powered life would be very small and simple just like D audaxviator To figure out how this might work Atri ran simulations using existing data about GCRs to see how much energy they’d provide on some of these other worlds The numbers were clear: The small steady shower of cosmic rays would supply enough energy to power a simple organism on all of the planets he simulated except Earth Atri reports this week in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface “It can’t be ruled out that life like this could exist” he says Atri thinks Mars is the best candidate to host GCR-powered life The planet’s composition is rocky like Earth’s with plenty of minerals and it might even have some water tucked away Both would offer excellent mediums to be broken down by cosmic rays and gobbled up by a life form The most essential part of the equation though is the thin atmosphere “It’s funny” Atri says “because when we look for planets that contain life currently we look for a very thick atmosphere With these life forms we’re looking for the opposite” Duncan Forgan an astrobiologist at the University of St Andrews in the United Kingdom who was not involved with the work agrees that Mars might be harboring D audaxviator-like life because its stable temperatures and physical makeup are similar to that of the South African gold mine He does worry that on other planets that don’t receive light energy from a sun but still get bombarded with GCRs—such as free floating rogue planets not tied to any solar system—temperatures would dip too low and freeze life in its tracks He also cautions that too many cosmic rays could wipe life out altogether: “Life forms like this want a steady flux of energy from cosmic rays but not so much that it’s damaging” he says “They might not be able to cope with a huge bout of radiation that pops in" In the future Atri wants to bring the gold mine bug into the lab and see how it responds to cosmic radiation levels equivalent to those on Mars Europa and others That data would give him more clues to whether this kind of organism could survive beyond Earth “Desulforudis audaxviator is proof that life can thrive using almost any energy source available” he says “I always think of Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park—life finds a way” *Correction 3 January 2:45 pm: This article has been modified to

Obama in 2014 asking why there were no women on the currency found out through her mom that Harriet Tubman will appear on the $20 bill Her mom Kim Bernstein tells TIME that her daughter is “thrilled” “She’s obviously thrilled with the idea of Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill” Bernstein said “Her only worry is that it’s going to take a long long time to see it” Sofia now a pro at handling the press opted against chatting with TIME in order to have a more low-key birthday Understandable The Treasury Department announced Wednesday that Tubman the abolitionist hero will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 billnews that has overshadowed the fact that the $10 bill redesign comes first The $10 bill which Secretary Lew said in June would feature the portrait of a woman will continue to depict the portrait of Alexander Hamilton The reverse or back side of the bill will reportedly feature a collection of women’s suffragists The $5 bill is also getting redesigned to feature a collection of Civil Rights era leaders The Treasury Department said Wednesday that the designs of all of three of the bills the 5 10 and 20 will be unveiled in 2020 in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment The $10 will enter circulation sometime thereafter and the $5 bill and $20 bills will follow Secretary Lew said he’d called on the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and reached out to the Federal Reserve to see that the process is accelerated though an exact timeline of the bills’ release is not publicly available A senior government official told TIME last week however that the $20 bill “would not be issued prior to 2030" Lew said Wednesday changes to technology could change that calling the date an “estimation” Jane Kamensky the Director of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Harvard University says Wednesday’s decision “disappoints” her Like many Kamensky would rather see a woman on the front of the currency that is being redesigned first “I’m deeply disappointed in a decision that places the hopes of millions of living girls and women behind the need to venerate the same dead man in the same way” Kamensky said in an email Women on 20s the organization that’s been leading the push to have Tubman replace Jackson said today’s announcement is a step in the right direction in a statement released Wednesday evening "We had been looking to this Treasury Secretary to put a woman front and center as soon as possible and powerfully inspire the quest for gender equality going forward Todays announcement is an important step in moving us closer to that goal” Women On 20s Executive Director Susan Ades Stone said "This is just as much a victory for the millions of American people young and old who cared enough about women and their worth to rally for this historic change" she added In a conversation with TIME historian Catherine Clinton who wrote a biography about Harriet Tubman is extremely excited “The work of the women on 20s campaign and recent activity to keep Hamilton on the money means a double bonus for America” she said United States Treasurer Rosie Rios shouted out the work of Clinton on a conference call Wednesday saying her writing on Tubman helped seal the deal for the abolitionists’ placement on the $20 bill Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also tweeted her support for the decision A woman a
