first_img Parmalat jumps after Lactalis takeover bid Tuesday 26 April 2011 8:30 pm whatsapp whatsapp SHARES in Italian dairy group Parmalat jumped more than 16 per cent yesterday, after French rival Lactalis launched a €3.4bn (£3.02bn) takeover bid for the company.Lactalis plans to pay €2.6 per Parmalat share to create the world’s biggest dairy group, with estimated combined annual revenues of €14bn.The French company’s purchase of 29 per cent of Parmalat in March has spurred Italy to look into ways to stop one of the country’s best-known companies falling into foreign hands.Lactalis made its bid hours ahead of a meeting between Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Rome.Berlusconi said he hoped Italian groups would reach an accord with Lactalis after the French group’s bid.

SHED Architecture & Design, based in Seattle, recently completed a custom crafted urban remodel of a 1,702-square-foot Capitol Hill loft. The award-winning 1310 East Union Building designed by the Miller Hull Partnership for Seattle-based developers, Dunn + Hobbes, accommodates eight loft-style condominiums with big views of the surrounding neighborhood.Save this picture!© James F. HouselThe client, a young couple who work nearby, came to the firm with an original layout that did not harmonize with everyday living patterns; an exposed entry way, lack of storage and oversized hallway left no place to hide. The main challenge was to add functional elements to the space that blended with the building’s original palette of concrete floors, zinc plated pan-decking ceiling, and blackened steel beams and railings.Save this picture!© Mark WoodsInserting a mix of texture, raw materials and functional elements, SHED Architecture & Design was able to artfully marry the new additions with the original industrial construction using a palette of concrete brick, stainless steel plate, blackened steel and mirror. In the kitchen, the counter was extended beyond the original range to create a protected entry way and more generous kitchen space. The brick found in the backsplash and island was chosen for its sympathetic materiality that is forceful enough to blend in with the native steel, while the boldly grained Zebra wood casework adds warmth and character.Save this picture!Main Floor PlanThe new island houses valuable additional storage, a built-in microwave (a playful “curly cord” hanging from the ceiling provides the power) and informal seating for four. Its wood top is easy on the elbows while the 3/16” stainless steel plate counter that flanks the sink and range is impervious to the hazards of the kitchen. The geometric wallpaper by local designer Brian Paquette adds subtle texture and movement to the space. Inspired by a traditional Japanese pattern book, the design was reproduced on 11×17 paper and applied to the wall using wheat paste.Save this picture!© Mark WoodsThe extended kitchen creates a protected entry way that lets things unfold naturally upon entering the space. The open cabinet above the extension sheds light into the entry and serves as a place for personal belongings; the bench below creates a space for shoes, and a mirror clad wall reflects light from the living room windows into the heart of the space. “These functional elements are things we think about when designing a new space; it’s a consistent theme on all our projects,” says Thomas Schaer, Principal of SHED Architecture & Design.Save this picture!© Mark WoodsUnder the stairs, the steel base board was replaced with steel plate to create a durable storage space for bikes. Storage was an outstanding issue throughout the loft, particularly in the master bedroom. The SHED team designed a lightweight enclosure of perforated steel that defines a closet space while maintaining the openness of the original layout.Save this picture!Loft Floor PlanThe intention in the newly converted loft upstairs was the opposite; the formerly exposed loft space was closed off with a translucent 3Form wall panel and a framed wall to create a guest room and additional storage. The thoughtful mix of raw materials and targeted elements helped solve practical problems while building upon and enriching the original aesthetic of the building, leading to cohesive additions that feel native to the space.

On the picket line

first_imgAT&T workers win grievance strikeCommunications Workers Local 9509, representing some 1,700 AT&T workers in San Diego, walked off the job May 19. The union had requested information about how the company monitors employees after a civil court judge ordered AT&T to pay $1 million to a wrongfully terminated call center worker. “The documents requested are necessary to protect our members from the constant abuse of the monitoring system by management,” explained CWA Executive Vice President Tosha Broadnax. “We have a contractual right to request and receive these reports.” (cbs8.com, May 20)In response to AT&T’s repeated refusal to comply, the workers, who had been without a contract since April, called a grievance strike. They picketed call centers throughout San Diego, forcing AT&T to reroute incoming calls for six days. No doubt fearful of growing solidarity with the East Coast Verizon strike in its sixth week, AT&T caved, releasing reports May 25. (laborpress.org, May 29) CWA District 9 Vice President Thomas Runnion recognized, in an open letter, “the amazing show of solidarity that we have seen demonstrated by Local 9509. The six day strike was so strong — 1,700 members committed in taking a stand together and not wavering.” (local9509.net, May 25)Tobacco workers demand changes by Reynolds suppliersEver since 2007, workers in North Carolina fields that grow tobacco for Reynolds American have confronted the company with reports of low wages and miserable working and living conditions on the company’s contract farms. But this year, the company’s 2015 audit report, issued the day before its annual shareholders’ meeting in Winston Salem, confirmed what the Farm Labor Organizing Committee has been saying all along. The audit found cases of children under 13 working in the fields, minors below 16 illegally performing hazardous work, serious safety violations in tobacco barns and inadequate reporting of workplace accidents. Interviews with workers also uncovered wage violations, documenting that 25 percent of growers did not provide legally required documentation about wage rates, transportation and housing.While hundreds of workers and supporters picketed in the rain, 40 farmworkers and FLOC supporters went inside the meeting. For the first time, Reynolds executives and shareholders had to listen to testimonies of 10 child farmworkers, whom they had previously claimed did not exist. After one youth asked Reynolds to sign an agreement with FLOC guaranteeing a living wage so children don’t have to help support their families, his question was met with deadly silence. However, FLOC President Francisco Velasquez acknowledged that Reynolds’ audit and willingness to hear testimony showed FLOC’s persistent pressure. He said the report by Reynold’s CEO Susan Cameron “signaled a seismic shift in the company’s public response to our concerns.”Following the meeting, the crowd marched in a sea of red FLOC flags to a park to hear farmworkers testify about such things as the need for a grievance procedure to remedy complaints. FLOC thanked supporters from many labor and faith-based organizations and university groups, including Black Workers for Justice, Fight for $15 and the North Carolina AFL-CIO. (floc.com, May 5)Domino’s Pizza accused of rampant wage theftA May 24 lawsuit by New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneid­erman accused Domino’s Pizza of systematically underpaying workers statewide by hundreds of thousands of dollars. Domino’s franchise owners have increasingly come under fire in the state for wage violations, including a 2014 class action suit against one franchise that ended with a $1.3 million payout to workers. Meanwhile, the Domino’s corporation denies involvement in franchises’ day-to-day operations. (NewYorkTimes.com, May 25)The suit, however, alleges the corporation requires franchisees to use payroll software it knew would miscalculate workers’ hours, resulting in illegally low wages paid at 78 percent of its restaurants and overtime payment withheld at 86 percent of them. Schneiderman asserted, “We’ve discovered that Domino’s headquarters was intensely involved in store operations and even caused many of these violations.” (ag.ny.gov, May 24)Over $1 billion in stolen wages recovered nationwide by the U.S. Department of Labor since 2010 represents only a tiny fraction of the total amount bosses steal from workers every day. (NYTimes.com, May 25) If successful, this lawsuit may make it easier for more corporations to be held responsible for wage theft — though only the workers themselves, empowered through labor unions, can mount a decisive fight for fairness.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Tamil journalists suffering repeated arrests and harassment

first_img Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial News Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists to go further Reporters Without Borders voiced dismay about the cost to the press of heightened political tension in the country where over a two-day period one Tamil journalist was arrested and three others assaulted by members of the security forces.”Instead of calming down the situation, the police and the army are carrying out unjustified arrests that only stir up resentments. The security forces and the Tamil Tigers (LTTE) should guarantee the safety of Sri Lankan journalists whatever their origin,” the international press freedom organisation said.Reporters T. Sabeswaran, Winston Jeyan and J. Jerad, working respectively for the Tamil language dailies Thinakkural, Thinakaran and Namathu Eelanadu, were clubbed while covering a student demonstration in the northern city of Jaffna on 19 December. Their work equipment was also damaged.Two days earlier, on 17 December, B. Parathipan, a lawyer and renowned journalist working for the Tamil language daily Thinakkural and two other staff at the newspaper, Kulukulan and Prameshwaran, were held in custody overnight after being stopped at a Colombo checkpoint.Even though they produced their identity papers and press cards issued by the authorities, the three men were taken successively to two police posts.Police officers took fingerprints and photos of B. Parathipan and his two colleagues without giving them any explanation. They were only released after the intervention of a Tamil parliamentarian.Army officers searched the offices of Tamil newspaper Namathu Eelanadu in Jaffna on 15 December and conducted lengthy interrogations of several staff.

Trumbauer is a tiring weekend but it’s also fun, educational and an opportunity to learn about new ways and ideas of performing. It’s a wonderful creative environment for young performers.”Boothe said a large number of parents and other family members attended Trumbauer and their participation was greatly appreciated.“We also receive a lot of support from the Troy Education Foundation and the Troy Arts Council,” Boothe said. “Their support of our program is very important to us. We certainly want to thank them for all they do to in support of our theater program.”This was the last year that Trumbauer will be held at Troy University for a while. It has been at Troy University for three years so it will now rotate to the University of North Alabama for three years.“ Having the state festival here in Troy has been convenient for us but we’ll look forward to Trumbauer wherever it is,” Boothe said. Print Article The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… What a wonderful, whirlwind weekend.That’s about the best way to describe the 69th Walter Trumbauer Theater Festival at Troy University over the weekend.Nearly 1,400 high school theater students from across the state competed in individual and group theater events. Among those were 16 students from Charles Henderson High School in Troy and Jessica Boothe, CHHS drama teacher, said she was extremely pleased with the performances of all of her students. “Being named to the All-Star cast means that they had stand-out performances,” Boothe said.Jamar Carswell, Ariel Peterson, Olivia Bensinger, Tara Youngblood, Zerick Foster, Kathryn Kelly, Katie Blocher and Michael Rader all received superior ratings for their performances. Superior ratings are top ratings for the Trumbauer Theater Festival.“About 50 schools competed at Trumbauer and with 1,400 students and teachers in attendance, we had a full house for the weekend,” Boothe said. “The students who participate in Trumbauer are always so cooperative and well behaved. They come ready to compete, to learn and to have fun. It just warms you heart to be a part of an event like this.”Boothe said the state competition only happens once a year and her students begin looking forward to it as soon as school starts. “We have a semester before the competition and they are always anxious and ready to go,” she said. “Trumbauer is an opportunity for them to learn, to have their spirits lifted and to renew their interest in theater.
