  • Utility firm Just Energy cuts 200 positions, predicts $9M in severance costs

    Companies in this story: (TSX:JE)The Canadian Press TORONTO — Just Energy Group Inc. says it is eliminating 200 jobs in a move that will save $40 million in annual costs in its upcoming financial year.The company, which sells electricity and natural gas and provides other services to consumers in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, says it will incur about $9 million in severance costs in the fourth quarter of its 2019 financial year, which ends March 31.In a regulatory filing in May last year, Just Energy reported employing a total of 1,576 people.The company left in place its guidance for its 2019 financial year’s base earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortization of between $200 million and $220 million.In a report, CIBC World Markets analysts say the cost savings were likely overdue and shouldn’t impact operations, adding they view the enterprise as a “show-me story” with above average investment risk.Just Energy lost $35.8 million on sales of $2.8 billion in the nine months ended Dec. 31, compared with a profit of $252 million on $2.6 billion in the same period of 2017.“Today we took actions that align with our ongoing commitment to transform our organization to a consumer company,” said CEO Patrick McCullough in a news release after markets closed Thursday.“These actions will serve to secure a bright future and support the best interests of all of our valued stakeholders.” read more

  • In Paris Annan meets with Chirac and UKs Blair addresses business leaders

    Mr. Annan, who arrived in Paris yesterday for a two-day visit, attended a working lunch with Mr. Chirac and Mr. Blair, where the three discussed the preparations for the General Assembly’s summit this coming September, the situation in the greater Middle East, as well the need for increased development financing, UN spokesman Fred Eckhard said. Following lunch, Mr. Annan spoke to reporters outside the Elysee Palace. He said he was relieved that Iraq hostage Florence Aubenas and her guide Hussein Hanoun were freed. He expressed hope that other hostages will be freed soon.In an earlier speech to a meeting of international business leaders, the Secretary-General said that the fight against extreme poverty, as enshrined in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), is no longer a job for governments alone. The meeting of international business leaders was organized by the Global Compact, a UN inter-agency initiative championed by Mr. Annan which seeks to advance good corporate citizenship and responsible globalization.”Business is of vital importance to the Goals. The value of the goals to business is equally undeniable,” Mr. Annan told the more than 300 participants, who had been invited by President Chirac. “Business generates employment and wealth. Your tremendous human, technical and organizational capacities have direct applications in virtually all realms of development.” Mr. Annan said that the recent efforts of Europe Union members to increase aid, and the decision by the G-7 to cancel $40 billion of debt owed by 18 of the world’s poorest nations, mostly in Africa, give real hope. However, he added, more decisions in favour of the developing world were needed at the G-8 meeting next month and beyond.The Secretary-General began his day with a 45-minute bilateral meeting with President Chirac, where, his spokesman said, they discussed UN reform, financing for development, the Middle East, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Western Sahara, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo and Sudan. read more

  • Sisters win High Court inheritance battle against millionaire brother

    Sisters who fought their millionaire brother for a share of their mother’s estate have won a High Court battle, after a judge agreed that her traditionalist husband forced her to change her will.Ho Chin, from Southend in Essex, amassed a fortune of up to £3 million through a successful restaurant business and property investments, including homes in Hong Kong.She died in 2015 aged 82 and left all her money to her already wealthy son, 53-year-old Winston, because her husband George, 87, wanted her inheritance to be passed to the family’s male heir.But three of the couple’s daughters – Ivy, 60, Rose, 61, and Ruby, 57 – decided to challenge the decision and have now overturned their mother’s final will.A High Court judge in London agreed that Mrs Chin had changed her will under “undue influence of her husband and/or son” and had done so “for the sake of a quiet life” without realising the implications.George and his son Winston deny putting Mrs Chin under pressure.Judge Milwyn Jarman QC said: “It is clear in my judgment that from a time shortly after his wife’s stroke, [George] Chin began to put pressure on his wife to leave her share of Southchurch Road to the male line, and that Winston was aware of his parents’ argument on the issue. Another sister Lia, 47, supported her brother, and a fifth, Lydia, 54, did not make a statement for the case.”This family is divided in two, nearly everyone has chosen a side,” Ivy’s barrister Aidan Briggs told the court.The judge overturned the 2011 will and later transfer of the property to Winston’s side of the family, meaning the 2009 will stands. Under that document, Mrs Chin’s share in the business premises will be split between the six siblings.He added: “It is one of the sad aspects of this case that her wish to avoid family squabbles over assets after her death has not come to pass.” “It is likely that her desire to avoid family squabbles and enjoy a peaceful life played a large part in her succumbing to those wishes rather than to continue to choose her own.”Mrs Chin’s inheritance was a “constant source of friction” in the household and the subject of bitter arguments, the court heard.While she wanted to leave her £97,500 share in the family restaurant to all six of her children equally, her husband wanted it to all be handed to their son.Mrs Chin made a will in 2009 which split her share of the family’s Southchurch Road business between all six children.In an accompanying letter of wishes, she wrote: “I have always been very fair to all my children as they all came from my womb. “I am very happy that my only son, Winston, is the main beneficiary of the Chin estate. I also want to bless my five daughters with my share in the property.”However, she had a stroke shortly afterwards and, while “vulnerable and dependant on her husband and son”, a new will disinheriting her daughters was executed in 2011. Ivy, backed by sisters Rose and Ruby, claimed that their mother did not understand the contents of her final will and executed it under the influence of George and Winston.

  • Nordkalk selects ABBs cpmPlus Expert Optimiser for Köpings lime kiln

    first_imgABB has sold its cpmPlus Expert Optimiser solution to Nordkalk’s Köping plant in Sweden. This should improve process stability and energy efficiency when burning alternative fuels; and builds on the previous successes at Nordkalk’s Lohja plant. The scope of supply includes all associated hardware, software, engineering and commissioning. Installation started at the end of April.At Köping, Expert Optimiser has been chosen to improve the stability of the process when burning alternative fuels and so be able to use them more effectively. Alternative fuels will remain under operator control while stability is brought to the process by Expert Optimiser controlling the master fuels. Commissioning of the system has started.Expert Optimiser, part of ABB’s CPM Minerals suite of solutions, ensures that the kiln is operated under optimum conditions according to the customer’s goals. It finds the best operating conditions for each customer’s situation and at Köping one of the critical objectives will be to achieve the specified kiln temperature and then keep the temperature stable. The optimisation strategy will improve overall energy efficiency by reducing fuel consumption.At Nordkalk’s Lohja plant Expert Optimizer has brought about a production increase of 9%. Göran Sandström is in charge of Nordkalk’s quicklime production in Sweden and is Köping’s Production Director. He commented, “The lime kiln in Köping produces a high quality lime, which is very appreciated by our customers. However, the kiln is not particularly energy efficient. With the installation of the Expert Optimiser, we are convinced that we can reduce energy consumption in the same way as our colleagues did in Lohja. This will mean a lot for the future of the Köping lime kiln, not only economically but also from the environmental point of view.”Nordkalk is the leading producer of high quality limestone-based products in Northern Europe. The products are used mainly in the paper, steel and building material industries as well as in environmental care and agriculture. After the production increases achieved by ABB’s Expert Optimizer at Nordkalk’s Lohja plant in Finland, Nordkalk has again selected ABB to support them in the improvements they wish to bring to the Köping plant.last_img read more

  • They have nowhere to go Leeside Apartments residents continue to fight mass

Aimee O’Riordan said she will not leave her home. Image: Leah Farrell/ Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Aimee O’Riordan said she will not leave her home. Short URL By Michelle Hennessy Jun 26th 2018, 3:59 PM RESIDENTS FACING EVICTION from their rental accommodation in Cork city have appealed to the government for an urgent change in legislation to help them stay in their homes.A group of residents at the Leeside Apartments in Cork have been battling with Lugus Capital, the fund which owns the apartment block, after they were informed they would have to leave.The fund has previously said the apartments are not in compliance with fire certificates and the refurbishment is needed to bring the building up to modern standards.Residents appealed to the Residential Tenancies Board, but the board sided with Lugus Capital, agreeing that the work was necessary. Under current legislation, a landlord can require all tenants to vacate the property if substantial refurbishment is required.There are around 20 residents who are refusing to leave and they have appealed to the fund to allow them to temporarily move into one of the other blocks so their apartments can be brought up to standard and they can move back in. The Leeside Apartments are undergoing a €4.4 million refurbishment. Source: Sean Murray/TheJournal.ieSpeaking to reporters in Dublin today, resident Aimee O’Riordan said her first interaction with the fund was receiving a notice to quit, cellotaped to her door.“Of course it was a very distressing time, I didn’t know what the future held I was kind of just getting on about my day.”O’Riordan lives in the apartment with her five-year-old son Alex. Share78 Tweet Email1 Image: Leah Farrell/ 83 Comments The pressure and stress of this situation is interfering with every part of my life. Alex knows something is going on. The other day he asked me: ‘why do the men want us to leave?’She said there is “little or no alternative accommodation” available and the suitable properties she has looked at have “sky-high” rents.O’Riordan said residents are appealing the RTB decision and even if they lose, she will not be leaving her home voluntarily.“If they come to the door and tell me time is up and I’ve nowhere to go, I’m staying.”Solidarity TD Mick Barry said if these evictions are allowed to go ahead, they will constitute he “biggest single surge in homelessness” in Cork city since the current housing crisis began.“They have nowhere to go,” he said.“The government must act. The Housing Minister needs to urgently bring forward legislation which blocks eviction of this type.” Fr Peter McVerry said the majority of people who are becoming homeless now are coming from the private rental sector. Source: Leah FarrellHousing campaigner Fr Peter McVerry echoed Barry’s call for a stop to evictions – he suggested the government could put in place a ban for three years and then reassess the situation.“The most urgent problem today is preventing more and more people becoming homeless. The vast majority of those who become homeless originate from the private rented sector. The government has no plans to prevent evictions from the private rented sector.”He pointed out that many of the government’s homeless solutions also involve the use of private sector accommodation, which he said would not provide long-term security for families.Miniser for Housing Eoghan Murphy was questioned by Mick Barry in the Dail on the issue. He said the RTB was an independent body and that it had ruled substantial refurbishment was needed.However, he said he will be bringing forward measures in the next Residential Tenancies Board bill in relation to substantial refurbishment “to protect tenants who are being abused in those instances”.The Dáil was suspended when Barry shouted at the Minister and refused to take his seat. Source: a statement Lugus Capital said Cork’s Leeside Apartments are undergoing a €4.4 million refurbishment.“Leeside Apartments are currently not in compliance with their fire certificates, so the refurbishment is necessary not only to bring the building up to modern standards but also to maintain the safety of the residents.“Lugus Capital acquired the building at the start of October 2017, and as part of their acquisition process, they carried out a full structural survey and fire safety inspection.“Currently, there are 16 residential tenancies at Leeside Apartments. All residential tenants have been issued notices, with full notice periods corresponding to the length of their tenancy.

  • Funeral held for US soldier at center of Trump fight

    first_imgCOOPER CITY, Fla. (AP) — Mourners remembered not only a U.S. soldier whose combat death in Africa led to a political fight between President Donald Trump and a Florida congresswoman but his three comrades who died with him.Some of the 1,200 mourners exiting the church after Saturday’s service said the portrait of Sgt. La David Johnson, 25, was joined on stage by photographs of Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Georgia. The four died Oct. 4 in Niger when they were attacked by militants tied to the Islamic State. Johnson’s family asked reporters to remain outside for the service.“We have to remember that one thing: that it wasn’t just one soldier who lost his life,” said Berchel Davis, a retired police officer who has six children in the military. He said the preacher and Rep. Frederica Wilson both made that a part of their talks. “That was a good gesture on everyone’s part.”He and others said the fight between Trump and Wilson was never mentioned during the service.Johnson’s pregnant widow, Myeshia, had held the arm of an Army officer as she led her two young children and her family, dressed in white, into the Christ the Rock Community Church in suburban Fort Lauderdale. The modern hymn “I’m Yours” could be heard coming from inside.Johnson’s sister, Angela Ghent, said after the service that “it don’t feel real” that her brother was killed.“It hasn’t hit me yet, I haven’t had time to grieve,” said Ghent, who last spoke to her brother a few weeks before he died. She said she was glad mourners got to hear about her brother’s love for bikes and cars, not just his military service.last_img read more

  • Peel Ports Group puts staff at heart of reward strategy

    first_imgPeel Ports Group at a glance:The Peel Group was founded in 1920, and was formerly known as Peel Holdings. The group operates in industry sectors including media, transportation, ports and property.Peel Ports currently has around 1,100 workers serving seven ports: Port of Liverpool, Manchester Ship Canal, Medway Ports, Port of Heysham, Clydeport, Marine Terminal Dublin, Victoria Terminal 3 Belfast.  Business objectives impacting benefits:Managing new staff and their benefits brought into the business through the new Liverpool 2 terminal.Continuing to align its benefits strategy with its business strategy.To make the organisation more attractive to potential new recruits. The benefits:Pension:Stakeholder pension scheme available for all UK employees.Minimum employee contribution set at 4%, with matching employer contributions of between 4% and 10%.Health and wellbeing: Private medical insurance (PMI) available for all senior managers and executives.Health cash plan available to all staff as a core benefit.Eye care plan.Employee assistance programme (EAP).Group risk:Critical illness insurance (part of flexible benefits package).Life assurance (part of core package).Personal accident insurance available through the health cash plan as an employer-funded benefit.Staff travel:Bikes-for-work.Car salary sacrifice scheme blended with car cash allowance.Family friendly benefits:Maternity leave on full pay for the first six weeks, and half pay for 7-39 weeks.Return-to-work bonus of 20% of an employee’s salary after at least three months of maternity leave.Holiday:25 days as standard in addition to statutory bank and public holidays.Holiday trading.center_img Since 2011, Peel Ports Group has been evolving its compensation and benefits package to attract and retain staff, with a particular focus on its pension and flexible benefits offering.The organisation is currently creating a deep-water terminal for containers, Liverpool 2, which will result in an expanded workforce. An additional 480 roles will be created, along with around 5,000 additional supply jobs in the north west of England.Due to open at the end of 2015, Liverpool 2 is a £300m infrastructure, which will mean the rest of the Peel Ports Group will rely on the ports part of the business to deliver even more than it does already.Increased focus on pensionsPart of the organsation’s benefits evolution is an increased focus on pensions provision, leading to a revamped and streamlined provision and communication strategy to enable it to meet legislative requirements such as auto-enrolment and this year’s pension freedoms.Almost all (90%) of its employees are in its defined contribution (DC) pension scheme, due in part to the benefits team focusing its attention on its pension-based benefits. Peel Ports held compulsory presentations for its workforce in the run up to auto-enrolment, put up posters and sent out newsletters and booklets to give employees more information. It further encourages employees to save for their retirement with the increased employer contributions it introduced in January 2014, which rose from between 3% and 6%, to between 4% and 10%. The minimum employee contribution rate is currently set at 4%, before increasing to 5-10% from 2016. The combined average pension contribution is between 14% and 15%. The organisation also received the Pension Quality Mark Plus in November 2014 for its low charges of 0.35%, quality of governance and ongoing communication.The organisation’s focus on pensions was also recognised with the award for ’Best DC pensions change’ at the Employee Benefits Awards 2015.Combining benefitsPeel Ports Group’s workplace benefits are not all pension focused. It aims to bring its benefits together as one effective unit, and also blend it with the overall business strategy. Howard Sloane, group HR director at Peel Ports Group, believes that combining the port’s business strategy with its benefits strategy is the best thing for both the organisation and its workforce. “Our HR strategy was formed on the back of our reward and benefits delivery as a five-year plan; it’s easy enough to put the two together,” he explains.“What’s important is that the HR strategy works in conjunction with, not against the business strategy. We’ve looked at what the business objectives were for the next five years and designed an attractive benefits strategy around that.”In line with this, Peel Ports has enhanced its flexible benefits package to appeal to as many workers as possible, and align with the business’ aims. It added green cars and holiday trading to its flexible benefits package during its scheme election window in May, to create a more tax-efficient offering. The organisation also offers a home technology benefit where its 1,100 staff can select any iPad model between the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 range and pay for it over 12 months directly from their salary. This is also one of its most popular benefits, with 10% of employees taking it up. “Adapting our benefits package has really helped us get closer to knowing our staff and what they want. It was a really big, tough change between 2013 and 2014,” says Sloane.Almost all (98.5%) of Peel Ports Group’s workers stay with the firm for at least 12 months, an improvement on previous turnover rates. According to Sloane, this is due to a changed company culture and mindset. Reducing staff absencesIt is clear that Peel Ports’ staff are at the centre of its business and reward strategies. In its meeting rooms, there are pictures on the walls with motivating messages such as: ’Be the change you want to see in the world’, ’If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you’, and ’Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try’. Sloane says: “It really feels like a very large family-run business. Everything we do is very people-focused.”Reducing sickness absence rates has also been a focus for the organisation. Sloane explains: “Those [employees] on long-term sick [leave] are not our priority in terms of monitoring. This is why we have an electronic system where line managers will get an instant notification about their employee. After three of these messages, the situation will escalate into a conversation about the employee’s attendance; it’s short-term absences that hurt the business and other employees the most.”The organisation is focusing on becoming an employer of choice and sends its new recruits hand-signed cards to welcome them to the business. It is also aiming to demonstrate a more discernible employer presence and support, for example, by sending cards to staff on their birthday and work anniversary. In addition, its benefits and HR brand, HR Connect, aims to personalise, as well as digitise its workplace benefits service. It also has a call centre-style assistance programme to help staff with any queries about their benefits.For Sloane, the next steps are to continue to develop a benefits strategy that supports the business. “We can’t [implement] everything straight away and give and give to our workforce,” he says. ”But we do have a package that’s really forward thinking and innovative. We’re definitely growing towards world class, but equally, we’re not rushing. Benefits, and a well-thought out strategy for them, is vital to a business, particularly one that is going through a period of significant growth and change.”Career history:Howard Sloane has been group HR director at Peel Ports since 2011. His previous roles include head of people and culture, UK and Ireland at energy firm Vestas, HR manager at engineering support services firm Babcock International Group, and HR manager at global logistical organisation TDG.Sloane joined Peel Ports to act as the driving force behind the HR and benefits revamp. He says: “I’m blessed to have found such a talented and dedicated team of HR practitioners who have worked so hard to achieve the HR strategy and vision that I set out.”last_img read more

  • Physics duo offer explanation of why tiny bubbles last longer on a

    first_img Scientists know that the smaller the radii of curvature a bubble has, the less time it will tend to exist before popping. Thus, nano-sized bubbles should pop almost instantly, and in most cases they do. One exception is when they are sitting in a fluid that is covering a solid surface. In this case, nano-sized bubbles have been observed existing for up to days at a time, and until now, no one has been able to offer a reasonable explanation as to why this occurs.In their paper, the researchers argue that there are two factors at play. The first is the fact that due to the solid surface, the radii of curvature is increased relative to bubbles flowing freely of the same volume, because they are flattened out by the surface. This increases their strength. Second, the researchers noted that the longer lasting bubbles tended to exist in groups of bubbles, rather than as isolated entities. This they means that the liquid in which they all exists has more gas in it (expelled from the bubbles themselves) and thus because it is more saturated, it’s less able to accept more gas from the still existing bubbles. Free bubbles on the other hand, leave their gasses behind as they rise to the surface.Gaining a better understanding of bubble formation and popping is more than a mere curiosity – a more thorough understanding of the underlying principles could lead to better pumps in tiny machines or perhaps assist in the development of medical delivery systems. Also, learning how to prevent bubble formation may also help reduce problems that occur when they impede flow or change the course of fluids in dynamic systems. © 2013 Mysterious nanobubble burst? Citation: Physics duo offer explanation of why tiny bubbles last longer on a surface (2013, February 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from (—Physicists in The Netherlands, Detlef Lohse and Joost Weijs of the University of Twente, have offered an explanation of why nano-sized bubbles last considerably longer when sitting on a solid surface covered by a fluid, than when they are allowed float free. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the two argue that surface-held bubbles have increased radii of curvature and sit in pools of liquid infused with gas, which causes them to last longer. Sketch of a liquid layer in contact with a solid (left). The top of the liquid is exposed to atmospheric conditions. At the solid-liquid interface nanobubbles are present. The arrows indicate the gas flow direction. On the right a further enlargement of one nanobubble is shown. Credit: More information: Why Surface Nanobubbles Live for Hours, Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 054501 (2013) . On ArXiv present a theoretical model for the experimentally found but counterintuitive exceptionally long lifetime of surface nanobubbles. We can explain why, under normal experimental conditions, surface nanobubbles are stable for many hours or even up to days rather than the expected microseconds. The limited gas diffusion through the water in the far field, the cooperative effect of nanobubble clusters, and the pinned contact line of the nanobubbles lead to the slow dissolution rate.
