Samsung Electronics to Increase Stake in SHI

first_imgzoom Samsung Electronics intends to buy more shares of the financially struggling affiliate Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), adding that the company will not abandon the shipbuilding business, The Korea Times reports.Samsung will take part in SHI’s rights issue as a sign of belief in a positive turnaround after SHI carries out self-restructuring programs. The company did not disclose the exact number of shares it intends to buy. Samsung Electronics currently holds a 17.62% stake in SHI.The shipbuilder plans to raise between KRW 1 and 1.3 trillion through the rights issue. As part of the restructuring process adopted by the Korea Development Bank (KDB) and the shipyard’s other creditors, SHI also intends to raise KRW 1.5 trillion through the sale of non-core assets, as well as to cut its workforce by 1,500.SHI, which is reportedly on the brink of signing a USD 2.5 billion contract to build a floating LNG ship for Italy’s Eni, is not in danger of suffering liquidity issues in the next five years due to signs of market recovery and a rising demand for value-added vessels, according to a due diligence report recently submitted by Samjong KPMG to KDB.“SHI’s top management was notified that the company’s self-rescue packages, including a plan to issue new shares, will keep the shipbuilder afloat,” a KDB official was quoted by The Korea Times as saying.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Judge to decide if Nazi troll storm is protected speech

first_imgMISSOULA, Mont. – Attorneys for a neo-Nazi website publisher and a Montana woman asked a judge Tuesday to decide whether the white nationalist had a First Amendment right to unleash a “troll storm” of anti-Semitic messages and threats against the Jewish woman’s family.U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch heard arguments in Missoula on whether to dismiss a lawsuit by Tanya Gersh, a real-estate agent from the mountain resort community of Whitefish, against The Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin.Lynch didn’t indicate how soon he would rule, said Marc Randazza, one of Anglin’s attorneys.“It was clear that he’s been thinking very deeply about the constitutional issues,” Randazza said in a text message Tuesday.Lynch previously ruled against Anglin’s argument to dismiss Gersh’s claims of emotional distress, intimidation and invasion of privacy because Anglin is “not a citizen of any state” and has been living abroad for years.But the judge wanted to hear from attorneys on both sides in the courtroom before he ruled on another key argument in Anglin’s motion to dismiss — that the neo-Nazi publisher was engaged in political speech protected under the First Amendment.Gersh sued Anglin last year after he published a post in 2016 calling for an “old fashioned troll storm” with the personal information of Gersh and others whom Anglin accused of “extorting” the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer.Gersh said she agreed to help Spencer’s mother, Sherry, sell property she owns in Whitefish. She accused Gersh of threatening and harassing her into agreeing to sell the property.Gersh said in her lawsuit that her family received hundreds of harassing messages from Anglin’s followers, including one that was just a recording of gun shots. Another message for her 12-year-old son told him to look inside an oven for a free video game console, a reference to a method that Nazis used to kill Jews during the Holocaust.Anglin argues through his attorney that he was only inviting his readers to protest Gersh’s actions. He also argues that he is not liable for his followers’ actions and that the personal information he published was publicly available.The messages Gersh received were “mean-spirited, nasty, brutish and uncalled for,” but also political hyperbole and not a true threat, Anglin’s attorneys Randazza and Jay Wolman wrote in a court document that lays out their argument.“If we are to reject speech because it comes from an unorthodox group, we do violence to the very underpinnings of our notions of liberty,” Randazza and Wolman wrote.Gersh, who is being represented by the Southern Poverty Law Center, said in response that the First Amendment’s free-speech protections do not include a co-ordinated attack through private communications meant to cause substantial emotional harm.Anglin wasn’t speaking on any broad public issues, Gersh attorneys David Dinielli and John Morrison wrote. Rather, he directed his followers to terrorize Gersh personally through private means of communication.“Severe emotional distress was not only the foreseeable consequence of (Anglin’s) troll storm but its very end, and (Anglin) cannot wash his hands of it,” the attorneys wrote.In a statement released Tuesday, Dinielli said he was encouraged that the magistrate is “examining the claims of our client with such care,” and she is eager for the chance to prove her claims to a jury.last_img read more

5 howlers that put spotlight on umpires in IPL 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: One of the raging debates of the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was the deteriorating standard of umpiring. Throughout the 12th edition of the IPL, fans witnessed many incidents where questions were raised about the umpires’ efficiency. IANS takes a look at the glaring umpiring mistakes that had people saying pull up the umpires in the cash-rich league: ‘Wide-ball’ not called (MI vs CSK final): Kieron Pollard was fined 25 per cent of his match fee after he showed dissent at the umpire’s decision in the final of the IPL 2019 between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju Pollard was visibly unhappy with a decision made by umpire Nitin Menon in the final over of Mumbai’s innings at the summit clash on Sunday which MI won by one run to clinch their fourth IPL trophy. Pollard was irked with the umpire’s decision to not adjudge a delivery by Dwayne Bravo as wide. Mocking the decision, the West Indian all-rounder went on to take strike well away from the stumps and near the ‘wide-line’ before pulling away as Bravo ran in. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters Malinga escapes after delivering no-ball (RCB vs MI group game): One of the most glaring mistakes by an umpire was made in RCB’s clash against MI at home. RCB needed seven runs off the last ball but Lasith Malinga conceded just one to win the contest for his side. However, after the match was over, cameras revealed Malinga had overstepped, which was not spotted by umpire Sundaram Ravi. “We are playing at the IPL level and not playing club cricket. The umpires should have their eyes open. That is a ridiculous call at the last ball,” Virat Kohli had said after the match. “If it is a game of margins, I don’t know what is happening. They should have been more sharp and careful out there.” Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma had also said such mistakes were “not good for the game”. Umesh called despite not crossing bowling crease (RCB vs SRH group game): RCB was at the receiving end of yet another umpiring mistake in their final league game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Umesh Yadav was bowling the final over when the fifth delivery was adjudged to be a front-foot no ball by Nigel Llong. However, the replays showed his foot was inches behind the crease. Rohit adjudged LBW (MI vs KKR group game): Another umpiring mistake came during a match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Mumbai Indians when Rohit Sharma was adjudged LBW while his side was chasing a massive 233. The incident happened in the fourth over of the second innings when Rohit was given out to an attempted hoick that he missed off Harry Gurney. Replays showed that the ball was just clipping leg stump as the Mumbai Indians skipper reviewed the decision. The decision could have gone either way but since the umpire’s original decision was that of ‘out’, the third umpire stayed with the on-field umpire’s call. Rohit was displeased with the decision and after having a couple of words with the umpire, he broke the stumps with his bat. Following the incident, the MI skipper was also fined 15 per cent of his match fee. Dhoni losses calm over ‘no-ball’ u-turn (CSK vs RR group game): CSK skipper MS Dhoni, who is known as ‘Captain Cool’, too suffered a meltdown and stormed from his dugout to confront the umpires after a no-ball call for a high full toss was reversed against Rajasthan Royals in an IPL 2019 game. The incident happened when CSK needed 18 runs from the final over. The fourth delivery of the over bowled by Ben Stokes to Mitchell Santner was first called a no-ball by umpire Ulhas Gandhe but the decision was changed after he consulted with square-leg umpire Bruce Oxenford. At this point Dhoni – who was in the dugout – stormed into the field and confronted both the umpires, asking them of the reason for reversing the decision. Quite a few Rajasthan players also got involved in what seemed to be a heated discussion. Ultimately, the delivery was deemed legal but replays suggested it was a waist high no-ball. Dhoni was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for his behaviour, which many former cricketers termed as a “light punishment” for the wicketkeeper-batsman.last_img read more

Peacekeeping chief highlights challenges facing UN Police

They are taking part in the two-day UN Chiefs of Police Summit (UNCOPS) which aims to build up the relationship between UN and national policing efforts, strengthening the overall response to transnational threats to peace and security, among other objectives.More than 11,000 officers from 89 countries currently serve as part of 16 UN operations worldwide; just 10 per cent of them are women.In his address to the opening ceremony on Thursday, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, head of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, shone a spotlight on the heroism and bravery of these men and women, who are known as the “blue berets”.Increasingly, our blue berets are serving in contexts where there is no negotiated political settlement in place – Jean-Pierre Lacroix, UN Peacekeeping“Our UN Police colleagues are operating under difficult security and political conditions.  Increasingly, our blue berets are serving in contexts where there is no negotiated political settlement in place,” he said.“The long-term political horizon – in places like South Sudan, Mali and the DRC (the Democratic Republic of the Congo) – is unclear. “Mr. Lacroix reported that peacekeeping overall is subject to increasingly dangerous conditions, such as the threat posed by armed groups and extremists.And while peacekeeping remains a cost-effective means towards achieving sustainable peace and security, he said it is not always seen as a priority.Ministers, police representatives and other experts from up to 193 countries are attending the summit, and the UN peacekeeping chief appealed for their support.He called for greater political engagement and said it was vital to avoid or mitigate conflicts before they escalate into a full-blown crisis.Countries were also asked to provide more French-speaking police officers, both women and men, with particular areas of expertise, such as a track record of tackling serious and organized crime.Mr. Lacroix added that women peacekeepers can also serve as role models and bridges to communities, especially vulnerable populations.As safety and security of UN personnel is another challenge, he said steps were being taken in this area.UN Police is an integral part of UN Peacekeeping, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year.The officers help to build and support their national counterparts in post-conflict countries to create the conditions that will allow sustainable peace and development.For example, in Haiti they currently provide mentoring and strategic advice to senior- and middle-level management, while also helping the country’s police to build trust with local communities.UN Police saw its first deployment in 1960, to the then Congo, under a UN mission whose mandate included ensuring the withdrawal of Belgian troops following independence, and assisting the government with maintaining law and order. read more
