It will prevent EDF from a write-off in the US that could have amounted to some €600m (£523.9m) if Constellation had exercised the option”, a Paris-based analyst said.Under the previous deal, EDF had agreed to buy nearly half of Constellation’s operating nuclear business and gave Constellation the option, which was set to expire at the end of the year.EDF had threatened legal action if Constellation exercised the option.EDF’s previous representative on Constellation’s board, Daniel Camus, who was involved in the original deal, stepped down on 21 October.The two companies had also disagreed over Constellation’s decision earlier this month to unilaterally pull out of the federal loan guarantee process for the companies to build a new nuclear reactor at Constellation’s Calvert Cliffs plant in Maryland. Under the new deal, EDF will be the sole owner of UniStar, which owns the Calvert Cliffs sites.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! As I write late on Friday, and with one trading day left in November, what an incredible month it’s been for UK shareholders. News of Joe Biden winning the US presidential election gave global markets an early lift this month. Then news of one, two, and then three highly effective Covid-19 vaccines lit a rocket under share prices. In November, the UK’s FTSE 100 index has surged 790 points (14.2%), adding over £250bn to share values. It’s a similar story over in the US, with the S&P 500 soaring to all-time highs early this week. Yet these two cheap shares in an unloved and undervalued sector have been left far behind in 2020. I’d cheerfully buy both today.Cheap shares: Shell’s year of hellWhile 40 shares in the FTSE 100 are up in 2020, 60 shares have fallen in value this year (and one joined less than a year ago). Among the very worst performers are stocks in banks and energy producers, whose share prices have been crushed by Covid-19. Number 98 out of 101 by performance in the FTSE 100 this year are the cheap shares of Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB), hit by the double whammy of coronavirus and plunging oil prices.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…At its 52-week high on 6 January 2020, Shell’s share price hit 2,342.5p. Less than 10 months later, it had crashed to a millennial low of 845.1p on 28 October. Frankly, this was an insane bargain, as I argued the very next day. Since then, Shell’s share price has soared by more than half, gushing 54.3% in four weeks. But I think there’s more to come from these cheap shares. After all, they remain down a whopping 41.3% over the past 12 months, slashing Shell’s market value to a mere £106.8bn. Today, Shell’s stock still offers a forward dividend yield of over 5.6% a year, paid quarterly in cash. Hence, I’d buy and hold these cheap shares today, ideally in an ISA, to enjoy a tax-free passive income and capital gains as the global economy recovers.BP: Big Problems, or Bargain Price?One place below Shell and 99/101 in the FTSE 100 performance stakes this year is rival oil & gas producer BP (LSE: BP). With similar problems to Shell, BP was in the same boat this year. Indeed, its share price crashed to 25-year lows not seen since the mid-Nineties. On 6 January 2020, BP’s share price hit a 52-week high of 508p, but had crashed to below 189p in late October. This 10-month collapse was one of the biggest valuation losses by a single stock in UK history. However, BP shares closed at 262.9p on Friday, having enjoyed one of their best-ever months. BP’s stock is up more than a third (66.3p, or 33.7%) since Halloween.Nevertheless, I believe these cheap shares have much further to go. Yes, like Shell, BP must undergo enforced evolution in the transition to a lower-carbon world. But it is responding by losing thousands of jobs, slashing capital expenditures, and cutting its running costs. Meanwhile, the price of a barrel of Brent Crude has leapt by roughly $10 to $48 this month, hugely boosting BP’s revenues. With its share price down 46.3% in a year and a market value of a mere £55.6bn, BP must hope for recovery in 2021. Meanwhile, its cheap shares pay quarterly cash dividends equating to a dividend yield of 6% a year. That’s a juicy passive income to bank while banking on BP’s bounce-back! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Cliff D’Arcy | Saturday, 28th November, 2020 | More on: BP RDSB As UK stocks enjoy a record month, I’d buy these cheap shares for a passive income Cliffdarcy has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

While denying him bail, the Additional Sessions Judge, Amitabh Rawat observed, “What is material is the gravity of the offence and the allegations against the accused which are quite grave. And added to it is the conduct of the accused showing that he does not satisfy the triple test for grant of bail.” Case against Pathan The instant case against Pathan was registered under Section 147, 148, 149, 216, 186, 307, 353 & 34 IPC read with Section 25 & 27 Arms Act. The Special Prosecutor opposed his Bail Plea stating that on 24th February 2020 he was caught brandishing a pistol with the temerity of firing and pointing it at police personnel HC Deepak Dahiya, who was deputed on that day for law and order arrangements near Jafrabad Metro Station. He further submitted that the sensational incident was captured by a Journalist in his mobile phone which became breaking news on all the news channels and news papers. After the said incident near Jafrabad Metro Station, he had absconded, however, after a concerted effort; the applicant was arrested by the team of Crime Branch on 03.03.2020 from Shamli Bus Stand, Uttar Pradesh on the basis of secret information. The Car used for escaping from Delhi after committing the crime was recovered from Uttar Pradesh at his instance. One Kaleem, who had given shelter to the applicant after his escape from Delhi, initially absconded but he too was later on arrested. The illegal weapon along with two live cartridges and the shirt worn by him at the time of the incident was also recovered at his instance from his home on 05.03.2020 during police custody remand. Arguments put forth by Pathan’s Counsel The Counsel for applicant/accused Shahrukh Pathan submitted that he was arrested on 03rd March 2020 and has been languishing behind bars for the past 10 months despite the non­-commencement of trial. He further argued that the statement of complainant/HC Deepak Dahiya, in this case is, contradictory in terms of various news clippings and statement under Section 161 Cr.P.C. He argued that as per the complainant, he was never shot at, in many of the interviews and thus, Section 307 IPC cannot be invoked against him. It was further submitted that accused has been made poster boy by the prosecution without any basis. Court’s observations Taking into account the allegations against him, the Court said, “The accused is alleged to have participated in the riots and has been duly identified. His picture speaks volumes about the involvement and the conduct of the accused on the said day.” The Court further said that equally important in the present case is the conduct of the accused. After the incident of 24th February 2020, he absconded. In this backdrop, the Court said, “Going by the conduct of the accused and the manner in which he absconded and was arrested later on, suggests that he is a flight risk.” Regarding Pathan’s Counsel’s argument that there are discrepancies in the statement of the complainant and most of the interviews of the said complainant, the Court opined that it wasn’t relevant for the purpose of bail as the contents of the charge sheet along with documents/annexures only have to be looked into for the purpose of bail. In view of the above discussion, the Court was not inclined to grant the relief prayed for. Accordingly, the bail application under Section 439 Cr.P.C of accused Shahrukh Pathan stood dismissed.

first_img Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “With Hospice care, you are there to help a person die with dignity,” Martin said. “It’s a different transition.” And there are things worse than death, she said. Long suffering with no hope of getting better is often worse than death.About 75 percent of Hospice care is education, including preparing the family for a loved one’s  impending death. The other twenty-five percent of care is medication, Martin said.“And, if care is done correctly and the family and the patient are prepared to let go, helping make the transition from this world to the next can be the most beautiful thing in the world.”Martin has heartfelt memories of families sharing those last moments of life with a loved one.“Singing and praying together is the most beautiful sight you could ever imagine and such a wonderful way to leave this world for the next,” she said. “My heart has been so blessed and I am so thankful.” By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Gwen Martin took a deep breath, folded her hands and settled back.How do you capsule nearly 50-years in the medical field, that includes years as a traveling nurse all over the states, hospital care and Hospice care?Martin said she had a passion for nursing in general but Hospice care was closest to her heart. “With that many children, of course, my parents were older when I was born. Their health was not good and they were sick – one of them or both –most of the time. I was there at home and I took care of them. By the time, I was 16, both of my parents had died. I have never regretted taking care of my parents. I was blessed to be the one. So, having been a caregiver all those years, nursing was the natural path for my life.”After both her parents died, Martin received her first “formal” training as a nurse at the old Edge Hospital in Troy at age 16. She attended nursing school at Troy State and was mentored by RN Rosa Lee Boswell. She was more than well trained.“Nursing is a calling, not a career,” Martin said. “And, Hospice care is different. It is a calling to help people die with dignity. I don’t know of anything that I could have done with my life that was greater than that.”Hospice care is vastly different from other forms of nursing, where the purpose is to help patients get better.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Two teenagers with a natural affinity for the sea assisted in rescuing two families — including a 4-year-old boy and 3-month-old baby — after the boat they were in capsized near the Florida Keys over the weekend.Mason Baker, 17, Will Coffin, 18, and Will’s uncle, Dave Tolhurst, 54, were fishing for Yellowtail just north of the Conch Reef Sanctuary Preservation Area in the upper Keys on Saturday when Tolhurst noticed the 23-foot boat overturned about 500 yards away, Baker told ABC News.“He asked us, ‘Is that boat upside down?’” Baker said, referring to Tolhurst’s comment after seeing the overturned boat.Once they determined that the boat was in distress, the group decided to “go do something” about it and pulled up their anchor, calling the U.S. Coast Guard as they made their way to the scene.Once they got there, they saw six people in the water, with the captain of the boat trying to climb on top of his capsized vessel, Coffin told ABC News.The good Samaritans pulled five of the stranded passengers from the water — including the two young children but minus the captain — onto their own boat, Coffin explained. The teens were also able to retrieve the group’s three coolers, which still had food intact, so they handed out juice and grapes to the 4-year-old boy, who was concerned about his father who was still in the water.Baker said he gave the “soaking wet” 3-month-old his shirt, and the Coast Guard arrived about 30 minutes later. The Coast Guard then airlifted the baby to a local hospital for the possible ingestion of salt water, officials said.Baker, whose father is a professional captain, hypothesized that the boat overturned because the six passengers, plus three coolers were too much weight for the small boat to handle. Additionally, conditions on the water were choppier than what was initially predicted that day, he said.Both families were from out of town, Baker said, and the boat was fairly new.Both teens have spent extensive time out on the water and often fish on their own, their mothers told ABC News. They were both born and raised in the Florida Keys.“I’ve been out on the water my whole life,” Baker said.Tolhurst commended the teens for their boating expertise and for staying calm during the traumatic ordeal, Bonnie Coffin, Will’s mom, told ABC News. Bonnie added that one of the victims got hit in the head when the boat overturned and told her son that “five more minutes,” and he may not have made it.The man was “rattled,” she said.The teens’ mothers explained the rescue posed a valuable lesson for the boys, who are set to graduate from Coral Shores High School in Tavernier and will attend Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton in the fall.“You can see how quickly things can go wrong out there, and you need to be aware — always — of your surroundings and always pay attention,” Bonnie said, adding that her son is “very cautious” and has good common sense.Duane Baker, Mason’s father, taught him how to “respect the water” and understand the risks involved, his mother, Jill Miranda-Baker, said adding that he plans on taking his boat with him to college.“His first love is being on the water,” Miranda-Baker said of her son.Mason said he plans on studying criminal justice and hopes to become an officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, while Will said that he plans on majoring in ocean engineering.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
