The sale reduced its stake from 59.70 per cent to 51.89 per cent.  It now appears the Mexican giant has capped how low it wants to see the stake go.In addition, American Movil agreed to a 180 day lock-up provision with what it termed “customary exceptions”.Back in October last year, it was reported the Austrian government was prepared to sell its 28.4 per cent stake to America Movil but this was denied.The balance of share in the company, equivalent to a stake of about 20 per cent, is a free float.Q2 strugglesDomestically, America Movil is feeling some pain from competition, as can be seen from its recent Q2 results.Although group revenue rose 6 per cent from the year-earlier quarter to MXN233 billion ($12.7 billion), the increase reflected the appreciation of several currencies against the Mexican peso in the period, particularly the Brazilian real and the Colombian peso. At constant exchange rates service revenues were down 2.1 per cent year-on-year.Domestically, service revenue fell by 11 per cent and mobile service revenue was down a painful 17 per cent, mainly because of reduced prepaid revenue.Telekom Austria offers a source of diversification from America Movil’s Latin American heartland, although Q2 did not give great relief. Revenue from the Telekom Austria Group was effectively flat at just over €1 billion, while EBITDA fell by one per cent to €329 million.last_img read more

BOEM Guides Search for West Coast Tribal Cultural Landscapes

first_imgThe US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has issued a new guide to help government agencies and Native American communities work together to identify areas along the country’s west coast that could be affected by future offshore renewable energy development. The potential for impacts to important coastal and marine Native American sites will increase as interest in offshore renewable energy development increases, BOEM says. These potential impacts may include physical disturbances to archaeological sites and traditional use areas, as well as visual impacts.Utilizing a cultural landscape approach that integrates traditional knowledge with environmental science, historical information, and archaeological knowledge, the guide outlines a method for tribes with a connection to the coast to document places and resources significant to their communities. This approach and the data it yields are intended to reduce potential conflicts while filling critical data gaps in ocean planning and resource management.“Understanding the types of important archaeological and cultural resources that could be affected is essential to their preservation,” said Joan Barminski, Pacific Regional Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.“The approach outlined in this guide recognizes that places and cultural heritage resources can have different or multiple meanings and levels of significance based on how people from different cultures, times, or backgrounds have interacted and continue to engage with the respective landscape.”A tribal cultural landscape approach is grounded in tribal sovereignty and identifies best practices for tribes on how to represent their interests to government agencies in reviewing potential development projects. It also outlines best practices for agencies on how to consult with tribes more effectively and appropriately in advance of proposed projects.“The places we live are as much part of us as our songs, stories, foods and oral traditions. They remind us of our place in the world and our obligations. Finding ways for land managing agencies to see this importance – to help us protect them and preserve our cultures, is vital,” said Eirik Thorsgard, one of the project’s core members and tribal member of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and former Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the Tribe.“This set of methods and acceptance of understanding assists in training people from other cultures about our perspectives and ensures for generations to come, we will still have the world our elders gave us.”The guide, Characterizing Tribal Cultural Landscapes, is available here.last_img read more

first_img Share 29 Views   no discussions Share Student receiving donation from volunteer, Clara CharlesA Dominican residing in the United States who saw the need to assist local students with stationary and organized a group for this purpose were able to donate school supplies to fifty-eight (58) students on Saturday.Although the individual who formed the group School Supplies For Dominican Youth; (SS4DY) wishes to remain anonymous, they were able to enlist the assistance of several other Dominicans in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada to volunteer in this worthy cause.In July of this year, a website www.schoolsuppliesfordominicanyouth.org was launched where interested persons could log on and donate school supplies, money or clothes for needy children in Dominica.The initiative targets students of the preschool, primary, secondary and college levels.Preschool student receiving donation from one of the volunteer Clara CharlesOne of the volunteers of the group, Cheryl Plummer told members of the press on Saturday that although the group was formed three months ago they were able to assist 58 children.“This year we got fifty-eight (58) needy students, we got school supplies like books, pencils, crayons, crayoning books, pens and some lightly used clothes to donate to different students from all over Dominica”. She explained that the only requirement for assistance is that the children are in fact enrolled in schools and are in need of assistance.The group also intends to donate school supplies to students every term.“This is the first official donation that we are making. We want to do it every school term so our next donation will be for the next semester in January… We have some stuff we got after we shipped the first set so hopefully for the next school term we will be doing something during the Christmas season”.

Hatchery Supported Trout Waters Open to Fishing April 7

first_imgThe N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will open Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters in 25 western counties at 7 a.m. on April 7. The season will run through Feb. 28, 2019.While fishing on Hatchery Supported Trout Waters, anglers can harvest a maximum of seven trout per day, with no minimum size limits or bait restrictions. On page 17 of the 2017-2018 North Carolina Inland Fishing, Hunting and Trapping Regulations Digest, the closed season date of March 1 through April 1 for Hatchery Supported Trout Waters is incorrect. The correct dates are March 1 through April 7.To give trout anglers opportunities to plan fishing trips in advance, the Commission has posted the full Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters stocking schedule on its website that provides information on what days each water is being stocked. Anglers can search by county and by month. The agency also posts daily updates at noon for all waters stocked that day. Information can be searched by county, by month, or both.Hatchery Supported Trout Waters, which are marked by green-and-white signs, are closed from March 1 until April 6 so that Commission staff can stock the waters with trout. Staff will continue to stock certain streams through June. Staff will stock many of these waters monthly, although they will stock some heavily fished waters more frequently. Over the four months, staff will stock nearly 916,000 trout — 96 percent of which will average 10 inches in length, with the other 4 percent exceeding 14 inches in length.Stocked trout are produced primarily at two mountain region fish hatcheries operated by the Commission and are distributed along hatchery-supported streams where public access for fishing is available. While Hatchery Supported Trout Waters are open to public fishing, many of those miles are privately owned so the Commission urges anglers to respect the property they’re fishing on and remember that landowners can take away access if they feel their property is being misused.Anglers can help prevent the loss of public access to fishing by:Respecting private property and landowners at all times;Removing all trash and litter from fishing and parking areas;Parking only in designated areas and leaving driveways open for traffic;Closing and/or locking gates after use; and,Reporting wildlife violations by calling 1-800-662-7137.For a complete list of all Hatchery Supported Trout Waters, as well as trout maps, the complete stocking schedule, and daily stocking updates on Hatchery-Supported Trout Waters, visit the Commission’s trout fishing page.For more information on fishing in public, inland waters, visit the Commission’s fishing page or call the Inland Fisheries Division, 919-707-0220.last_img read more

Photo of the Week: Early Signs of Fall at Oakwoods Metropark

first_imgWith night temperatures in the forties the past few days, it’s no wonder we’re seeing the first signs of fall color change in southeastern Michigan woods. At Oakwoods Metropark in New Boston, Michigan, I saw early fall color change on sumac and understory plants in the oak-hickory forest. It was lovely to see the bright purples of the New England Asters as well as the beautiful yellow goldenrod.No signs of fall raspberries could be found. Birds seemed to be hiding except at the birdfeeders next to the nature center, where red-breasted nuthatches enjoyed a late afternoon meal.
