Tata Vedanta mining leases end in March Govt for fresh auctions

first_imgNew Delhi: In a setback for the mining industry, the government is set to reject a proposal to extend non-captive mining leases of companies that are expiring after completing 50 year period in March, 2020. The move will impact about 334 mines belonging to companies such as Tata Steel, Vedanta Limited, Essel Mining, V.M. Salgaocar and Rungta Mines in 10 states that are facing expiry of lease and closure by March next year under current regulations. Of these 46 working mining leases have a significant contribution to the production of iron ore, manganese ore and chromite ore in the country.

Government is set to implement these recommendations, sources said. “The committee took note of the fact that these mines have known reserves and their period of lease will come to an end on 31-03-2020 as per MMDR (Amendment) Act, 2015 was also known. The legislature had already given a time of 5 years to ward off any situation causing disruption in supplies to local industry. Therefore, extension of time for continued operation of these mines is not desirable,” the committee has said in its report.

This, they felt, was necessary to prevent disruption in production while allowing full exploitation of resource available in a mine. “Non-extension of lease of non-captive mines is a setback for the industry that is already facing a slowdown in demand and lower prices. This would also disrupt existing mining operations and put jobs of lakhs of workers under risk,” said an executive of a private sector miner asking not to be named. While disallowing extension of mining leases, the HLC has said that post auction new leaseholders could continue operating on approved mining plan of previous leaseholders and environment clearance (EC) for an initial period of 2 years. This will help in preventing disruption in mineral production during the period of transition from one leaseholder to other. Moreover, this would provide time to new leaseholder to apply for fresh environment and forestry clearance without facing delays. The government is studying the recommendations of the HLC and will soon come up with an action plan including further amendments to the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Act. The HLC is chaired by Niti Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar and consists of the cabinet secretary and secretaries of mines, steel, coal, revenue and finance. The committee was set up in April on mines, minerals and coal sectors to identify key challenges and negate their impact. It has given its report to the Centre.last_img read more

Cooler weather allows BC government to cancel state of emergency

first_imgVICTORIA – The British Columbia government has cancelled the state of emergency it declared in August when hundreds of wildfires engulfed the province.The government says cooler weather and progress in containing the forest fires means the powers granted under the provincial state of emergency are no longer required.The Ministry of Forest also lifted campfire bans across much of the province as rain moved in.The bans were rescinded in the Prince George, Cariboo and Kamloops fire centres effective on Friday.Campfire bans will be partially rescinded in the Coastal, Southeast and Northwest fire centres, allowing fires in some zones but not in others.However, the burning of grass, use of tiki torches, chimineas, sky lanterns, fireworks, burn barrels and other combustible devices are still prohibited in all centres.The provincial government says there’s been a significant reduction in the number of properties under evacuation order and many residents have been allowed to return home.It says the state of emergency declaration was made to ensure public safety and the co-ordinated response to the summer wildfire season that has seen more than 13,000 square kilometres burned.The wildfire season isn’t over yet with 485 fires still burning, 19 evacuation orders in place covering about 2,000 people, and evacuation alerts affecting almost 4,900 residents.This is the second year in a row a state of emergency was declared over the wildfires, but last year’s declaration remained in place from early July to mid-September.There is also a reprieve from the smoke from the summer wildfires in B.C. and Washington state that at its peak had spread across the country.The Metro Vancouver regional district lifted its air quality advisory for the area and for the Fraser Valley.Environment Canada’s forecast for B.C. said it may take a few more days to see marked improvements in the air quality for the Interior regions, while the arrival of a trough of low pressure late Thursday and early Friday brought fresh southwest winds and improving air quality over coastal regions.last_img read more

Lenders extend Jet Airways bidders deadline to April 12

first_imgNew Delhi: Lenders of Jet Airways Wednesday extended the deadline for submission of initial bids for stake purchase in the ailing airline to April 12. Cash-strapped Jet Airways has delayed salaries to pilots, defaulted on loan repayments as well as payments to aircraft lessors. SBI Capital Markets, which issued Expression of Interest (EoI) document on April 8, has extended the deadline for submission of initial bids to April 12. Potential bidders can send their queries till April 11. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe deadline for submission of bids was to end on Wednesday. “The qualified bidders will be expected to submit their respective binding bid(s) latest by April 30, 2019 subject to the terms set out under the bid document,” SBI Capital Markets said in a notice posted on its website. The SBI-led consortium of domestic lenders are implementing a debt resolution plan for Jet Airways, whose board approved the plan last month. “While all soft copies of the EoIs are required to submitted by the EoI due date, the hard copies may be submitted by April 16, 2019,” the notice said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostEarlier in the day, SBI Capital Markets issued a set of clarifications related to the EoI document, including that bidders in a consortium need to furnish solvency certificates individually. “Bidders are required to provide the solvency certificate … on their letterhead and certified by managing director/ full time director / CEO of the bidder or a person holding an equivalent position in the bidder,” SBI Capital Markets said in a separate notice. In the case of consortium, each member has to submit solvency certificate, which is a proof of an entity’s financial stability. As part of the debt resolution plan for the full service carrier, the lenders are looking to restructure “existing facilities and infusion of funds by way of loans or acquisition/ subscription of up to 75 per cent of equity share capital of the company”. Shares of Jet Airways declined 1.59 per cent to close at Rs 263.40 apiece on the BSE.last_img read more

UKBased Research Predicts Rise of ShariaCompliant Credit Cards in Morocco

Rabat – New market research conducted by Timetric expects the rise of contactless payment services (CPS) and Sharia-compliant credit cards in Morocco over the next few years.Centre Monetique Interbancaire – Morocco’s own internal network switch – launched CPS in the kingdom just over a year ago alongside MasterCard, according to the United Kingdom-based business information serviceCPS allows customers to pay for goods or services at a vender through a cell phone, key fob or other device equipped with radio-frequency identification (RFID) or near field communication (NFC) without needing to pull out a wallet. Services such as ApplePay and Google Wallet are all part of the global CPS landscape. So far the CPS point of service terminals have only been deployed in Casablanca, but they are expected to reach Rabat and Marrakesh in the coming months. By the end of 2016, Moroccans will be able to take advantage of 6,000 terminals – and by 2017, that number will more than double to 17,000.Mobile point of sale devices, which allow small vendors to accept payments on smartphones and tablets, also spread to Morocco late last year, empowering freelancers and other mavericks to accept credit and debit cards.In June 2014, new banking laws established by the Islamist-run Rabat government allowed foreign financial institutions to enter the financial system to provide Sharia-compliant credit cards to the masses. By the end of the year, the government plans to authorize a total of 10 banks to provide such services.Still, Morocco is largely a cash-bashed society with employees either receiving their salaries in cash or using a bank account merely to store direct-deposited funds – likely to be withdrawn as hard currency at ATMs as needed. read more

Pollution aux PCB une manifestation devant une usine de Mayenne

first_imgPollution aux PCB : une manifestation devant une usine de MayenneDes dizaines de personnes se sont réunies dimanche près de l’usine mayennaise Aprochim pour manifester contre la pollution aux PCB qu’ils l’accusent d’engendrer. Au même moment, une centaine bovins contaminés devaient être abattus.Dimanche, des dizaines de manifestants se sont réunis en Mayenne, à Grez-en-Bouère, près de l’usine de traitement des matériaux souillés au PCB Aprochim, pour crier leur colère. Comme le rapporte l’AFP, ils avaient installés le long de la route menant au site des panneaux sur lesquels on pouvait lire “Attention, zone polluée”, “Pays de Grez, pays sacrifié”, ou encore “quel avenir demain?”. Un décompte du nombre de bovins contaminés abattus ou sur le point de l’être avait également été installé. Dimanche, il affichait le chiffre 302. Quelque 140 bovins issus de trois fermes différentes devaient être emmenés ce même jour pour être euthanasiés ce lundi, a indiqué sous-préfecture de Chateau-Gontier. Une décision prise après qu’une contamination de l’herbe et du foin, puis des animaux eux-mêmes, a été constatée.

The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild The Champions Ballad Still

first_imgStay on target These Games Seem Suspiciously Similar to ‘Breath of the Wild’Fan-Made ‘Zelda’ Tabletop Game Returns You to the Wild I don’t know how many articles I’ve written this year that begin with some kind of acknowledgment of 2017’s incredible game lineup, but that’s just because 2017 has had such an incredible game lineup. However, for me, and apparently The Game Awards, one game has still stood above the rest: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.It’s been a few months since that masterpiece launched in March, and I had to tear myself away from it to play a bunch of other awesome games. But to close out its own incredible year, Nintendo just released the final, substantial Zelda DLC pack, The Champions’ Ballad. It’s been the perfect excuse to revisit this Game of the Year and confirm that yes, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the Actual Game of the Year.The overarching Champions’ Ballad quest is structured pretty similarly to the main game itself, even if it’s only six hours compared to sixty. And you have to have nearly beaten the game already to activate it. Link is tasked with sneakily taking out monster camps on the Great Plateau with a weapon that kills with one hit but also causes him to get killed by one hit (a gloriously dumb tuning fork weapon called the One-Hit Obliterator). After that, he must solve interactive riddles across the four major regions, unlocking and conquering new shrines, and battling Divine Beast blights once again. It all wraps up with a brand new dungeon and a pretty nifty concept for a boss fight.Opening the game with an especially hard challenge was a curious and occasionally frustrating choice. In a way, it felt like playing the game for the very first time before you had amassed all this power or even knew how to do anything. Zelda’s complex control scheme takes some getting used to after some time off. But eventually it all came to back me and the emphasis on stealth and ranged weapons turned the game even more into the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain successor I never knew I would get so soon.Still, the difficulty was never what made Zelda so mesmerizing to me. It was the exploration and surprises and interlinking systems. The stripped-down challenge of Eventide Island was cool but I didn’t need a whole game of that. And besides, I thought the previous DLC pack The Master Trials was meant to appeal to folks who think Zelda should be Dark Souls (it shouldn’t). I wasn’t thrilled to see that philosophy here as well. It detracted a bit from an experience that didn’t need to be hard to be rewarding.Once you’re back out in the world though things settle into a nice groove. After my mixed feelings on the opening, I then realized, “Oh wait, I love this.” The riddles are lyrical and clever and the 16 new shrines somehow manage to introduce great new gameplay concepts not seen in the original 120 while also expanding on other ideas like spikes and ball-carrying.There’s still the sense that this is all an elaborate remix of existing content, rather than brand new content. But the existing content was already so incredible and ripe with potential for reinvention. It reminded me that, despite how fantastic Breath of the Wild already is, what’s even more exciting is its room for improvement in future games. It opened up a whole new stratosphere for Zelda to ascend through.Once you beat the quest you fortunately get new rewards that go back and improve your experience in the base game. Champion powers like energy shields and upward wind bursts recharge faster. There’s more fan service gear to find based on other Zelda games. Just on a technical level the update continues ironing out the framerate issues the game had at launch. And the ultimate prize is a ridiculous motorcycle Link can ride (and refuel!) for traveling across Hyrule in style.The gameplay in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild remains as impeccable as ever, and as a Nintendo game we shouldn’t be surprised the game prioritizes that gameplay above all else. However, the Champions’ Ballad was also pitched as “story-driven” DLC, but the story is about as light as it was in the main game.Since the game technically has no “post-game,” in terms of narrative this all still occurs before you defeat Ganon, which is weird since returning players may have done that already. You don’t play as any other characters in the past, like Princess Zelda or the Champions. Link just hears a Kass song and gets a little flashback when he completes another leg of the quest. They are charming flashbacks (who doesn’t love seeing their wife Urbosa?) but they don’t add all that much more compared to what we already saw. It’s too much material to call lazy, but again it adds to that remix feeling.Still, when the original game was already so unbelievable and filled to the brim with stuff to do, it’s hard to complain about all this ($20) gravy. The Champions’ Ballad may not add all of what you may have hoped for, but what it does add significantly extends the game in an immensely satisfying way. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the best game of 2017, and now it’s even better.

Former Juneau mayor Jamie Parsons dies at 74

first_imgFormer Juneau mayor Jamie Parsons died Saturday in Washington state after more than a decade battling cancer. He was 74.Friends and former colleagues remember his sense of humor, his love of sports and his unfailing commitment to the capital city.Download AudioJamie Parsons was named Juneau Citizen of the Year in 1994, around the time this photo was taken. (Photo courtesy Win Gruening)Jamie Parsons moved to Juneau in 1972 to become the city’s first Parks and Recreation director. He served on the Juneau Assembly for most of the 1980s and became mayor in 1991.“I considered him a dear friend. He was a tireless promoter of Juneau and he’s going to be deeply missed by this community,” said Juneau Senator Dennis Egan, who served as Parson’s deputy mayor.“One year we went to the Gold Medal Tournament. Albert Kookesh and Jamie and I are in the free throw contest. I can’t shoot a free throw and here we’re in front of all these fans and, of course, I missed,” said Egan.But Parsons said Egan could have Kookesh’s points “and Kookesh could have mine, so I won,” Egan said, laughing.Parsons was nonpartisan, Egan said, and got along with all the assembly members.Wife Mary Beth Parsons and Jamie Parsons (Photo courtesy Win Gruening)“I don’t care who you were; he’d sit down and talk to you. A lot of that is missed right now. I didn’t know if he was Republican or Democrat. We never talked politics. We talked about Juneau and making Juneau better,” Egan said.Paulette Simpson was another close friend and worked on Parson’s mayoral campaign in 1991.“Jamie excelled at friendships and he understood that, especially in politics, friendship was foundational if you were going to be successful,” Simpson said.If there was a legislator who spoke against Juneau being the capital city, “Jamie’s reaction to that was to go make friends with the person and invite them to dinner,” Simpson said. “And he and Mary Beth were absolutely the most gracious, hospitable leaders we’ve probably ever had and I think that went really far with people. Because he excelled at friendship, he put that to work for the capital city.”After one term as mayor, instead of running for re-election, Parsons put his energy toward fighting a 1994 ballot initiative to move the capital to Wasilla.Parsons traveled throughout Southeast to encourage voter turnout and traveled north as well. Longtime legislative aide Christopher Clark was working in Anchorage as a field coordinator in the campaign against the measure. He said Parsons was key to defeating it.“He helped organize it. He’d go out door-to-door. He’d give speeches. He’d talk to editorial board meetings. He’d go to newspaper interviews. And it all worked. Jamie was with me in Anchorage on the night of the election returns and we were jubilant. We once again had dodged a bullet and managed to keep the capital here in Juneau and Jamie deserves a lot of the credit for that,” Clark said.Like Parsons, close friend Win Gruening also served as Chair of the Alaska Committee. He said Parsons helped Juneau become an even better capital city by making it more accessible. It was his idea to do C-SPAN coverage of the Alaska Legislature – what’s now known as Gavel Alaska.“He bridged a lot of gaps. There’s a lot of polarization in politics today. He never paid attention to that. He listened to people and he always tried to figure out a way to get people to some sort of an agreement so that they could move forward on things,” Gruening said.Parsons also owned the Juneau Racquet Club with John McConnochie for about 20 years. McConnochie now co-owns Cycle Alaska with his wife. He called Parsons a mentor who taught him the concept of “paying your civic rent.”“Where businesspeople in town have an obligation to give back to the community that’s being supportive of them, and he certainly exemplified that throughout his whole life,” McConnochie said.McConnochie and Parsons were also very close friends. While traveling in New Zealand, McConnochie spoke with him days before he died.“What was amazing about that is Jamie was so positive and had great energy. Even though he was on some pain medication, that spark was still there,” McConnochie said.Parsons also once served as CEO of the Juneau Chamber of Commerce. In a letter to chamber members about Parson’s death, executive director Craig Dahl called him an “inspiration” and wrote, “Juneau has never had a more committed advocate.”last_img read more
