The slower-than-expected arrival caused a four-to-six-week delay in accessing high-grade material, he added.The company will announce its 2011 output target in January and Hambro said it will be more conservative than this year. Petropavlovsk produced 138,300 ounces of gold in the third quarter, the firm said in its interim management statement. The cut in production guidance was more severe than many analysts had predicted, though Charles Kernot from Evolution Securities added in a note: “Petropavlovsk’s gold in the ground will eventually be produced and so we retain our Buy [rating].”Petropavlovsk also said it expects a significant increase in reserves and resources following exploration work this year. Shares in FTSE 250-listed Petropavlovsk lost 3.8 per cent yesterday to close at 903p. KCS-content Share Tags: NULL Petropavlovsk lowers targets whatsapplast_img read more

Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW) shares have plunged in value this year.As the price of oil has crumbled, the oil producer’s share price has followed suit. At one point it was down by nearly 90% for the year. The stock has since staged a modest recovery, but it’s still almost 50% below the level at which it started the year.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…However, with oil prices recovering, the outlook for Tullow Oil’s shares is starting to improve. This could mean that the stock has the potential to produce substantial returns for investors.Tullow Oil shares on offer?At the beginning of March, Tullow Oil warned that it was facing the “perfect storm” of falling oil prices and high debt levels. If this perfect storm continued, management warned, there was a genuine risk the company could collapse.Luckily, the fortunes of Tullow Oil’s shares improved dramatically in April. It managed to agree on a firesale of its remaining stake in a Ugandan project to France’s Total for a deeply discounted $575m.Eight months before this deal was agreed, Tullow’s interest in the project was valued at $900m.Still, Tullow managed to buy itself some breathing room with this cash infusion. The company’s lenders also agreed to extend its $1.9bn debt facility.These developments removed any immediate threat to the company’s solvency.The oil price also rallied substantially over the past few weeks. It is now dealing at around $40 per barrel, up from $20 at the end of May, and $30 in mid-March.These tailwinds have helped Tullow Oil shares rally by nearly a third over the past month. There could be further gains ahead for investors.Rising demandAt the height of the coronavirus crisis, the world’s demand for crude oil dropped by around 20%, or 20m barrels of oil per day. This sent shockwaves through the global oil market, and the price of black gold plunged.Demand has steadily improved over the past few weeks. Forecasts now suggest total oil demand for the rest of the year will be just 10% lower than in 2019. On top of this growing demand, production cuts have reduced excess supply in the market.These factors suggest that the price of oil could continue to rise throughout the rest of 2020.That would be great news for Tullow Oil shares. Tullow reckons it can break even on a cash basis with oil at $35 a barrel, which suggests the company is generating cash at current oil prices.If the group can keep this up for the rest of the year, and pay down some of its massive debt pile, investor confidence should start to return. That may mean Tullow Oil shares could rise substantially from current levels. Indeed, with the stock down 50% year-to-date, it appears to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.As such, Tullow Oil shares may be an attractive acquisition as part of a well-diversified portfolio at current levels. 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.

first_img See all posts by Manika Premsingh Enter Your Email Address Why has the stock market rally stalled? Image source: Getty Images The UK’s stock markets have been subdued in May. The FTSE All-Share index has risen by the lowest pace in three months, just 1.3%. The index levels are still elevated. These levels were last seen in February 2o20, which was just before the market meltdown started. But the stock market rally has slowed down. FTSE 250 index gets sluggishWhat I find most glaring here is that the FTSE 250 index’s increase has slowed down to o.5% from the month before. This is the slowest growth rate in the FTSE 250 since the stock market rally began in November last year. It is also the first time it has grown by less than 1% since.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…This is also far less than for FTSE 100 index, which has grown by 1.6% since the start of the rally.  This is comparatively decent growth and has likely pulled up performance of the All-Share index too.What explains this?The FTSE 100 index includes many large multinationals. The FTSE 250 index, on the other hand, includes more UK-centric companies as its constituents. So, if the UK is in an uncertain situation, it is likely to show up in the performance of the FTSE 250 index as well. In that sense, the latest numbers are a red flag.The UK is indeed facing fresh coronavirus challenges. While vaccines are playing their part in controlling the pandemic, variants still need to be managed. European countries like France have just put fresh travel bans on the UK to stem the spread of the Indian variant the country is currently grappling with. Yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that we may need to wait before the final phase of the lockdown can end. The current plan is to lift it by 21 June.Risks to the economy are also rising, as inflation picks up. The UK reported a jump in April to 1.5%, as commodity prices, including energy, continue to gain pace. Since commodity prices are a global phenomenon, there is now a risk to recovery across economies if prices start rising fast. What can happen next?While these risks can be grave, I think there is a good chance that the UK can overcome them. When it comes to variants, the vaccines can now help in controlling both the spread and the severity of Covid-19. On inflation, I am encouraged by the fact that the central banks of both the UK and US have so far refrained from any interest rate actions. They are in a wait-and-watch mode instead. In the meantime, the planned public spending and the easing in lockdowns will support growth recovery. Can the stock market rally resume?I am optimistic about the prospects for the UK’s stock markets, and that includes both the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 indexes. With this in mind, I think the stock market rally could resume. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Please enter your email address here Mr. Connell, your post is insightful and brings to light the disrespect our legislative body has for its citizenry. Every child in Florida deserves the opportunity to attend a well equipped, well staffed, and safe school overseen by a school board that has the authority to regulate and enforce standards equally.center_img Mama Mia August 28, 2017 at 8:57 pm Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Mama Mia Mrs. E Reply OpinionFrom the Orange County Public School BoardLast week the Orange County School Board voted unanimously to join numerous other Florida school districts in petitioning the Courts to declare recently enacted House Bill 7069 unconstitutional.  The decision to join the litigation was not made lightly, and was only made after concluding that Constitutional principles of a uniform, high quality education and local control of our neighborhood schools were worth fighting for.I teach the citizenship merit badge to Boy Scouts.  As part of that merit badge Scouts learn about different forms of government.  They learn that in the United States we live in a constitutional democracy. They learn that this means that while we are a democracy in which we elect those who govern us, we are a constitutional democracy, meaning that our government is guided by a written constitution limiting the powers of government, protecting our civil rights and freedoms, and setting forth the principles by which we have chosen to govern ourselves.Just as our national government must abide by the federal Constitution, so too must our State government abide by the State Constitution. We believe HB 7069, passed on the final day of the Legislative Session without the benefit of committee hearings or any semblance of an open, deliberative legislative process, clearly violates the Florida Constitution.Article IX, Section 4 of the Florida Constitution provides for local control of public schools through locally elected school boards, stating, “The school board shall operate, control and supervise all free public schools within the school district.” Yet HB 7069 eliminates the power of local school boards to review and approve charter schools applications or to demand minimum standards of quality, competence, or taxpayer accountability from certain charter school applicants favored by the Legislature.House Bill 7069 also diverts local property taxes earmarked for building and renovating neighborhood schools to charter school operators without regard to local school district finances, growth needs, or bond ratings. This is directly contrary to Article VII, Section 9, of the Florida Constitution, which gives local school districts the sole authority to levy ad valorem taxes for local purposes.Perhaps most perversely, however, is that HB 7069 requires local schools districts to grant charters to charter school operators who employ uncertified teachers, a practice prohibited in traditional public schools.  It is unfathomable why our legislators would require us to allow children to attend publicly funded charter schools employing teachers not certified to teach in Florida. Article IX, Section 1 of the Florida Constitution states that every child deserves a uniform, high quality education.  We believe a high quality education begins, and ends, with a qualified, certified teacher in every classroom.Make no mistake, we have many fine charter schools in Orange County of which we are justifiably proud. Yet we have seen the effect a poor quality charter school can have on a child’s education.  It was just a few short years ago that we were forced to shut down a failing charter school where the Principal was taking a half million dollar salary, paid for by the taxpayers, while the children in the school were failing wholesale. Shortly before that we shut down another failing charter school in which only 8 percent of the children in the school could read at grade level, children whose reading scores declined dramatically after enrolling in the school. The true victims of these failures were the students and their parents who had entrusted the education of their children to those charter schools.Because of these failures the Orange County School Board now demands minimum performance standards in our charter school contracts. For example, we now require every charter school earn at least a grade of C or better or risk losing their charter.  And we demand that our charter schools comply with State testing requirements. These are locally negotiated requirements, yet under HB 7069 we will be compelled to grant a charter contract to certain legislatively favored applicants without any negotiation of terms and without even the most minimal performance standards.I teach my Boy Scouts that some principles are worth fighting for.  Our School Board has made it clear that we will withdraw our challenge if, and when, the Florida Legislature passes legislation curing the Constitutional defects of HB 7069. Until then, we intend to fight for the principles enshrined in the Florida Constitution, and for the right of every child to receive a uniform, high quality education.

I usually see the school crossing guard at that intersection when school is letting out. I am not familiar with the school schedules as to when they start, and when they let out, but normally I always see the school crossing guard standing there when riding along there, when so many of the school kids are walking home, like I saw today. It was about 3:12 pm or 3:13 pm. Maybe the school crossing guard had already left, or maybe hadn’t got there yet? We all have a duty to watch out for the neighborhood kids, you know. I did not see one, and my husband didn’t see one either, not saying that one wasn’t there, just saying we didn’t see one, nor their car parked there either.

first_imgSaturday Dec 26, 2009 Sean Lamont yellow carded for hit on Isa Nacewa It’s the day after Christmas and you’ve probably had way too much to eat and drink. One thing you haven’t had in a couple of days though, is your usual helping of rugby clips here on Rugbydump.So today things are back on track as I’ve got this big hit for you from the recent match between the Scarlets and Leinster in the Heineken Cup.Lately a lot of big tackles have been scrutinised very closely as we’ve seen some players get away with a few hits they perhaps shouldn’t have, and others who have been harshly dealt with by both the refs and the citing commissions.In November we featured a clip of Scottish wing Sean Lamont putting in two big hits against the Fijians at Murrayfield. Against Leinster a couple of weeks ago, Lamont smashed another Fijian, but this time had ten minutes on the sideline afterwards to think about his technique.Referee Chris White, after conferring with his touch judge, said that Lamont used his shoulder and didn’t wrap his arms as he flew into Isa Nacewa. Despite Lamont’s protestations, he was given the yellow card and Leinster kicked the resulting penalty.It’s a perfect example of how two different referees can view a tackle completely differently, as Lamont’s second tackle (in the other clip that you can view in the related links) was very similar to this, yet was deemed perfectly legal.Another interesting point about this clip is that at the end you can see Shane Horgan and Daniel Evans in a bit of a scuffle, with Horgan placing his hand all over the face of Evans. You can hear the crowd react when they see the replay on the big screen in the stadium.If we’ve learned anything lately, it’s that if Horgan had even so much as touched his fingers on Evans’ eyes, it would have been considered some kind of ‘eye-gouge’, and he may well have been in trouble for it.It’s obvious though that Horgan wasn’t doing anything of the sort, but shows you how easily actions can be misinterpreted when scrutinised so critically.Horgan was basically a few centimetres away from being labelled an eye-gouger for the rest of his career, which is ridiculous. Perhaps something to bear in mind when making judgements about the incidents we’ve seen this year, and will no doubt see in the future. :: Related Posts :: Jonathan Davies big tackle against Leinster Leinster pick up bonus point in good win over Scarlets Sean Lamont takes care of the Fijian wingers Time: 01:56ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_imgScrapped cars earn donations through Charity Car  241 total views,  1 views today  242 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. With Recycle Week (25 September – 1 October) approaching, charities could raise more funds by encouraging people to donate the proceeds from their unwanted vehicles through Charity Car.Charity Car offers to collect unwanted cars free of charge, and deal with all the legal paperwork, and ensures that the proceeds raised from scrapping or selling vehicles at auction are given to a charity of the owner’s choice.Motorists who would like to donate their car can visit the Charity Car website and select one of over 70 charities they wish to donate to the areas of health, the environment, children, international aid, community, rescue or animal welfare. They then enter the vehicle’s registration number and postcode and decide if they would rather deliver their car or have it picked up free of charge. Any car that is accessible can be collected, and can also be picked up from a garage.Charity Car then assesses the best route to maximise the value of the donation. If the vehicle has reached the end of the road and needs to be scrapped, then this is carried out at one of Charity Car’s nationwide network of fully licensed scrap car recycling centres. If there is still enough life in the vehicle then it is auctioned off.Scrap car prices vary depending on the vehicle and its location with a current average of £60 for a medium sized car, and auctioned vehicles able to raise more.Charity Car launched in 2011 backed by CarTakeBack.com and has so far raised over £248,000 for its partner charities.Make-A-Wish is one of the charities benefitting from the scheme. Spokesperson Katy Cosgrove said:“Forty-nine vehicles have been donated to us so far, raising a total of over £4,000. This is terrific, as every penny raised helps us grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.”UK registered charities can request to join the Charity Car scheme, and if a member of the public want to donate their old car to a specific cause that Charity Car are not partnered with, Charity Car will process the vehicle and pass on the donation to that chosen cause.

He presented an overview of the programs and services offered by the Troy Parks and Recreation Department and noted plans on the drawing board. This summer, Coach Frank Sadler and coaches from area high school will conduct two weeks of quarterback camps, with the first week for quarterbacks and the second week for quarterbacks and receivers.“Our soccer camps are popular and our soccer leagues have grown over the years,” Smith said. “That is reflected at the high school in that our teams do well.”The summer recreation baseball and softball seasons are coming to a close and the tournament season will begin.“Travel baseball and softball affect recreation ball in many ways and some of them are good,” Smith said. “Whether kids play rec ball or travel ball, at least they are not sitting home watching TV. The happy medium would be to do both.”However, Smith cautioned that kids can do too much and said what is in the best interest of the kids, health wise, should come first.The Tiger Sharks swim team is in the water and swimming lessons are available for all ages, including adults.“Our hope is that all people learn to swim,” Smith sad.The Troy Recreation Department has three Miracle League teams, two from Troy and one from Brundidge. The league’s last game will be on June 2.Smith has high regard for all programs offered by the Troy Recreation Department but said the Fitness Center is the best thing the department has done for adults.The Fitness Center offers opportunities including floor exercises, treadmill and free weights with knowledgeable instruction available.Water aerobics, Zumba, Boot Camp, Pilates and Silver Sneakers are programs that are offered to adults.Smith said an adult kickball league was very successful in the fall with 10 teams and will be offered again in September and October.“On July 4, the fireworks show is a big event,” he said. “A display like that is not cheap but it is our belief that patriotism is important and that we should celebrate the many freedoms that we enjoy.”The Sportsplex hosts the annual Pike County Heart Walk and the Pike County Relay for Life culminating event.Smith said he and his staff appreciate the opportunity to be a part of these fundraising efforts.“The Troy Recreation Department is always open to suggestions and we appreciate input,” Smith said.Rotarian Jimmy Ramage, who is mayor of Brundidge, expressed appreciation to Smith and the City of Troy for the many opportunities the recreation department provides for the people of Troy and Pike County.“We are one county and one people and we appreciate the interest of all of those who participate in the programs at the Sportsplex,” Smith said.
