Market Cap of U.S. Coal Companies Continues to Fall

first_imgMarket Cap of U.S. Coal Companies Continues to Fall FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Christopher Coats for SNL:The combined market value of major publicly traded U.S. coal producers continues to erode, now standing at approximately $4.59 billion, or 4.7% less than in November 2015, according to an S&P Global Market Intelligence analysis.Since April 2011, the group of 13 U.S. coal producers has lost more than 92% of its value, with the companies’ combined market capitalization falling from $62.5 billion to $4.59 billion amid historically weak coal market conditions.Foresight Energy LP, which has struggled to resolve negotiations with the trustee of its 7.875% senior notes due 2021, showed a 68.6% drop from the last analysis to just $188.7 million in March. Foresight has extended negotiations with the trustee several times since the beginning of the year after a Delaware court ruled against the company in December 2015 in a case brought by the trustee of the bondholders. The latest extension of the negotiations expires March 22.Meanwhile, Peabody Energy Corp. showed a 78.9% drop from the previous period to just $46.4 million. The company recently issued a notice to investors indicating substantial doubt as to whether the company will be able to continue as a going concern and warned of a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. In April 2011, Peabody was far and away the most valued U.S. coal producer with a market capitalization of $19.68 billion.Having filed for bankruptcy protection since November 2015, Arch Coal Inc. saw an expected decline, falling from $22.4 million to just $4.9 million on March 19. Like Alpha, Walter Energy Inc. and Patriot Energy before it, Arch is now in the process of navigating bankruptcy reorganization.Arch recently announced that it would suspend its efforts to secure a mining permit for the Otter Creek Coal reserves near Ashland, Mont., reflecting the difficult challenges it now faces as it moves forward.Full article ($): CONSOL bucks trend, but market value keeps eroding for most coal producerslast_img read more

Colombian, Guatemalan Armed Forces Neutralize Narco-plane Coming from Venezuela

first_imgBy Juan Delgado/Diálogo September 30, 2020 In late July, The Colombian Air Force (FAC, in Spanish), during a combined operation with the Guatemalan Air Force and Army, neutralized a light aircraft coming from Venezuela carrying more than 2 tons of cocaine. According to an August 6 press release from the FAC, the aircraft was intercepted in Petén department, Guatemala.“As a result of the combined operation, 2,107 kilograms of cocaine hydrochloride were seized,” the FAC said in the statement.The operation was carried out on the night of July 25, when the FAC’s National Air Defense System detected an illicit flight over the Caribbean Sea. FAC airplanes immediately took off to intercept the aircraft and block its entry into Colombian airspace, the FAC stated. The aircraft was forced to change course, while the information was shared with the Guatemalan Air Force in order to move the combined operation forward and capture the aircraft, which finally landed in Guatemala.The aircraft, according to the FAC’s statement, had begun its itinerary in Mexico, then stopped in Venezuela, and was attempting to return to Central America.Similar incidentIn early July, a similar incident happened in Mexico, when Mexican security forces neutralized an aircraft carrying an illegal shipment that made an emergency landing on a road in Quintana Roo state. According to the Venezuelan news site Primer Informe, the jet was coming from Maracaibo, Venezuela.The Mexican Defense Department said in a press release that a truck was intercepted near the aircraft with about 390 kg of cocaine, “presumably coming from the illicit aircraft.”Notable resultsThe FAC’s 3rd Air Combat Command, responsible for safeguarding the airspace of the departments on Colombia’s Caribbean coast, has achieved notable results so far in 2020, the FAC said in a report published on August 21.“During 2020, despite the pandemic, it has been possible to consolidate important results during joint and coordinated operations, with a total of 104 captures, the seizure of 51,328 kg of cocaine hydrochloride and 1,796 [kg] of marijuana, weakening these illicit economies that are the main source of other illegal activities in the region,” the FAC said.In an interview with the Guatemalan newspaper Prensa Libre on August 21, Colonel Juan Carlos de Paz, Guatemalan Army spokesperson, said that the Army had seized 7,349 kg of drugs so far in 2020.

Brazil’s Bolsonaro tests positive for coronavirus again

first_imgTopics : He is due to take a new test “in the coming days.”Since his diagnosis on July 7, Bolsonaro has been confined to the presidential palace alongside other people that have already contracted the virus.It’s a far cry from his regular daily routine that includes leaving the residence to greet his supporters, often while ignoring social distancing measures and without wearing a face mask.As well as taking part in video calls, Bolsonaro has been seen feeding rheas — a bird species native to South America that is related to the ostrich and emu — in the gardens of the official residence. One even pecked him.Brazil is the second worst affected country in the world by the coronavirus after the United States, with more than 74,000 dead and 1.9 million cases. He admitted on Monday by telephone interview with CNN that he “can’t stand this routine of staying at home” and said he was waiting “anxiously” to be given the all-clear to leave the house.He told the television channel he hasn’t had any symptoms such as a fever or respiratory difficulties since July 6.And he added that he continues to take the anti-malarial medication hydroxychloroquine.The drug has been pushed as a treatment for COVID-19 in many countries — but its effectiveness has not been formally proven and the issue is deeply dividing the global scientific community.center_img Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for coronavirus again, CNN Brazil said on Wednesday, quoting the far right leader, who underwent a new test on Tuesday.Bolsonaro, who at 65 is in a high risk group, said he would remain in quarantine at his official residence in Brasilia from where he would continue to work by video conference.The far-right president, who has caused huge controversy in Brazil for repeatedly flouting lockdown measures in place to curb the spread of the virus, first tested positive a week ago.last_img read more

Kompany not dropped due to bust-up

first_imgManchester City captain Vincent Kompany was not dropped last week as a result of an alleged dressing room bust-up, Press Association Sport understands. Press Association Claims emerged on Wednesday that the Belgium international was axed for the visit of Leicester seven days ago as a result of a furious row with team-mate Fernandinho – who was not in the squad to face the Foxes – at half-time of their 2-1 defeat at Liverpool the previous Sunday. Sources at the club have played down reports of an altercation between the players which allegedly also involved Pellegrini at some point and it is understood the manager’s team selection for Leicester was not based on anything other than football-related matters. center_img Pellegrini said after the win over Leicester it was “important to refresh the team mentally and physically after two difficult games” (against Barcelona and Liverpool). Kompany’s form has been a cause for concern for City this season as he has failed to reach the standards which arguably made him one of the best centre-backs in Europe a couple years ago. The defending Premier League champions trail leaders Chelsea by five points, having played one match more and have lost four times – they lost six in the whole of last season – and conceded 27 in 28 games compared to 37 in their title-winning campaign. Away from Kompany’s trials and tribulations one of the players City hoped would follow in his footsteps Matija Nastasic has committed his future to Schalke. The Serbia international joined the Bundesliga side in January on loan but the terms of the deal included an option to buy if the 21-year-old made a certain number of appearances. Schalke have agreed a contract with the centre-back which will see him sign until June 2019 but the move will not be officially ratified by City until the summer. last_img read more

Blackboard Africa is changing the views of African youth

first_imgTwo young women from Gauteng were prompted to create Blackboard Africa by the negative portrayal of young Africans. Their goals include inspiring youth through different forms of art and sharing the experiences of Africans.Zingisa Socikwa and Amonge Sinxoto of Blackboard Africa host events such as history talks, artists’ evenings, young art exhibitions, book club meet-ups and youth workshops. These events are a platform for African youth to speak to their peers and get guidance from mentors. (Images supplied)Melissa JavanTwo young women from Gauteng created the social movement Blackboard Africa to changes the perceptions of black youth to a positive narrative.Through live events and its social media platforms, this initiative is a platform for African youth to find and freely express their voices about the past, present and future, say its founders.They are 15-year-old Amonge Sinxoto, a Grade 11 learner, and her cousin, Zingisa Socikwa (21), a film student. The two explain that they were not happy with the conversations their peers were having regarding the image of the black girl.“We want to redefine and model how people in the world view our African identity and move away from negative, preconceived, colonial settings,” says Amonge. “Blackboard seeks to paint a beautiful picture on a clean blackboard through the eyes of the vibrant youth.”Their vision of Blackboard is a place to share ideas, she adds. “[We want to] intrigue our creative appetites through literature, music, drama, spoken word, art and sharing of beautiful stories.”The meaning behind Blackboard Africa“We called our movement Blackboard because it carries a timeless metaphor that we want all young Africans to remember,” says Amonge.“We are black and made of hardened material but at the same time we are smooth and soft. We have been written onto by society ‘the white chalk’ since the beginning of time.“Blackboard is about us erasing all of that and being the ones to portray ourselves in the way in which we feel we need to be portrayed.”How it startedThe cousins saw the need for this movement on hearing a disturbing conversation by teenage boys about black girls, she said.Such conversations were doing the rounds and gaining popularity in schools across Johannesburg. “It led to some heated exchanges of differing perspectives from young people as they shared hair-raising arguments with interactive text and voice notes in their group chats.”She and Socikwa were surprised at how beauty, intellect, strength and esteem were perceived in these conversations. “It was rather appalling to see how black girls are increasingly being viewed in a strange and distasteful manner in our society.”“Similarly, we see that popular culture and media has played a critical influence in defining what the ideals and model characteristics of a perfect girl should be,” Amonge said.The founders of Blackboard Africa, Amonge Sinxoto (left) and Zingisa Socikwa. Amonge says they hope to inspire youth with ideas from a fresh perspective while maintaining a clear view of the mixed memories of our past.The eventsBlackboard was a collaborative project, Amonge said. “[This is] so we can try to get people in our immediate access to share their experiences and stories.”For example, the Blackboard Africa team organises events where youth can engage with each other on various topics and share their experiences. Already this year, the group has held the Big Sister Little Sister x Big Brother Little Brother conversation.It was hosted in collaboration with another initiative, Bloom.org. The theme was about “the things we wish our mothers had told us about love and relationships”.Six panellists discussed a variety of relationships such as individuals in a romantic relationship, friendship between males and friendship between females. “[It] really opened the floor to a discussion that everyone could relate to,” said Amonge.The second event hosted this year was the launch of Blackboard Books, an interactive book club for the youth. “The novel we discussed was Coconut by Kopano Matlwa and the topic of conversation was identity.“We had the three panellists, including author Niq Mhlongo and television and radio host Penny Lebeyane.”Blackboard is planning more events, including something special for June, which is Youth Month in South Africa.Featured storiesOn the Blackboard Africa website, stories of people such as Zoe Modiga are told. Modiga talks about her musical journey. She is also asked what she would tell her 15-year-old self.Cuma Pantshwa, an HDI Youth Marketeer, is also profiled. She talks about working with youth. Besides learning about her background, you also hear what excites her about being a woman of colour. HDI Youth Marketeers helps brands and organisations connect with youth and families, through schools, malls, communities and digital playgrounds of urban, peri-urban and rural South Africa. HDI is part of global marketing and advertising group TBWA.Amonge said they profiled several people on their site, each of whom was seen as inspiring. These people were not necessarily celebrated in the mainstream media. “[They are] women and men we can look up to and would like to celebrate.“We also feature amazing young talent from the continent that are history-makers who are changing the narrative in their respective industries,” she explained.“We try to get a thorough understanding of the individuals we feature to make sure that they affiliate with what we are trying to do with the youth.”Blackboard has a variety of contributors who send in content from opinion pieces to poetry. “We also have a monthly feature called Phenomenal Black Woman in which we interview women in different industries.“[This is] to give some insight to our readers about the various industries and the black woman within them.”HighlightsIt had been encouraging that people wanted to join Blackboard and contribute in any way possible, Amonge said. “The team and movement are growing.“We have different committees from community projects, to book clubs, to art and culture committees, to the actual writing.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
