Alabama-based Drummond put its Colombian coal mining operations up for auction last summer, attracting interest from Xstrata as well as Rio Tinto, Vale, Glencore and mining investment vehicle Vallar. However, auction-runner Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) extended the bid deadline after Xstrata was the only firm to table a fully-financed deal. A spokesperson for Xstrata declined to comment, while BAML and Drummond did not return calls for comment yesterday. Drummond, which is privately owned by a family of the same name, produced 21.7m tonnes of Colombian coal in 2009, making it the second-largest exporter in the country. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Mines closed as Cyclone Yasi tears into NE Australia

first_imgWednesday 2 February 2011 8:28 pm whatsapp CYCLONE Yasi slammed into the north east coast of Australia last night, hitting the city of Cairns at about midnight, causing mass devastation and the closure of coal mines and a huge copper refinery in the area.Copper prices jumped to a record high of nearly $10,000 (£6,171) a tonne yesterday, fuelled by tight supplies and optimism over growing demand. Any further disruptions to supply would add pressure to the price, although Harry Colvin of Longview Economics warned against hysteria.“Australia only accounts for around five per cent of the copper supply,” he said. “Sentiment is really high at the moment, so price fluctuations are mainly just the ebb and flow caused by demand and risk appetite.”However, the storm saw BHP Billiton close two of its coalmines in the area with an annual capacity of more than six million tonnes.Australia has already seen its coal and food industries hammered by severe floods this year, and its sugar crop is likely to be the biggest casualty from the cyclone.Queensland accounts for almost all raw sugar shipments from Australia, the world’s third-largest exporter.“Certainly what happens in Australia will affect prices in the global market,” a sugar dealer in Bangkok said. Queensland’s Canegrowers estimated yesterday that industry losses could exceed A$500m (£311.5m), including possible cyclone damage to infrastructure. The category five cyclone, which could be the most powerful tropical storms to hit the coast since records began, has brought 185 mile-per-hour winds and a tidal surge of up to seven metres. whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULL Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ Share Mines closed as Cyclone Yasi tears into NE Australia last_img read more

Rivalry and friendship on show as Tonga beat Fiji

first_img Common bond: The Tonga and Fiji teams come together in prayer at Churchill Park LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There’s plenty of talent on the pitch for the Pacific Islands but there are a plethora of problems off it. Look out for Rugby World’s in-depth report into that at the end of July.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In fact, had they decided to opt for scrums rather than quick taps from a couple of free-kicks towards the end of the first half they may well have been able to exploit their dominance in that area and turned it into points.Related: Fly Fiji Airways to see the home of the world’s great rugby playersCoach John McKee pointed to his team’s inaccuracy as their biggest issue. “Credit to Tonga – they really put us under the pump and prevented us from playing our game when we needed to,” said McKee. “They probably won the physical battle.“We created a lot of line breaks but didn’t convert them into pressure or points, and that’s pretty disappointing. Our execution let us down. We have to look after the ball better and support the ball-carrier in contact, so we can clear the threat and make the ball available.“Games come down to critical moments, they come down to executing skills under pressure.”Fiji will be looking to execute better when it comes to their November Tests while Tonga will want to take the confidence of this win into their autumn fixtures.What was refreshing once this international period came to an end was the interactions between players and fans. While stories from South Africa have focused on testy exchanges, it was quite the opposite here.The pockets of Tonga fans in the main stand were joyously waving their flags at the end to the delight of the national team, while the Fiji team circled the pitch to applaud their supporters and were cheered loudly off the pitch despite the defeat.As well as the mutual respect, the passion for rugby is huge. That much was evident from the swarms of kids playing on local pitches en route to the game in Lautoka.Still, it isn’t all smiles in Pacific Islands rugby – as this tweet from Tonga’s Cooper Vuna demonstrates: Rivalry and friendship on show as Tonga beat FijiThe curtain came down on three weekends of Tests in Fiji in fitting fashion: two teams linked arm in arm in a circle, kneeling in prayer.The contest between Fiji and Tonga on the pitch at Churchill Park in Lautoka had been fierce in high temperatures – not only were players’ shirts sopping from the heat but so were there shorts – yet once the final whistle blew there was a show of togetherness. The islanders may be huge rugby rivals, but they also share a common bond in faith.Fiji were crowned Pacific Nations Cup champions the previous week, but it was Tonga who came out on top in this one-off Test, securing their first win over the Fijians since 2011.Related: Fiji win Pacific Nations CupThe 27-19 victory was built on their physicality in defence and at the contact area, particularly in the second half when their replacements made a big impact.Fiji are known for their running and offloading game, but smothered by Tongan tacklers they were unable to get accurate passes away. There were spilled balls and thus turnovers aplenty – a sign of the slipperiness of the ball in the heat as well as the effectiveness of tackles.Tonga captain Sonatane Takulua, the Newcastle scrum-half whose goalkicking was crucial to the win, explained that coach Toutai Kefu had called on the players to produce a performance of the same power as Tongan displays of the past.Lynchpin: Sonatane Takulua makes a break for Tonga (World Rugby)“He wanted us to play how Tonga played back in the day and we did that,” said Takulua. “We’ve got good ball-carriers and good tacklers in the team, and I’m just proud of the boys.“The key for the win was to bring line speed up to Fiji. We know they play an offloading game, so we looked to get two-on-one tackles and tried to be up in their faces in defence.“I’m very emotional. This is huge – most of us, including myself, haven’t beaten Fiji in our careers, so this is a proud moment.”The win was made particularly sweet given that it was on Fijian soil after Fiji had beaten Tonga in Naku’alofa last year.center_img TAGS: FijiTonga We report on the Fiji v Tonga game in Lautoka where the rivalry is intense on the pitch and the friendship close off it Still, it wasn’t all bad for Fiji.

5 ways to live easy this summer

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Summertime, and the livin’ is easy, as the song goes. From long, lazy days at the beach or pool, to relaxed backyard barbecues with family and friends, lighthearted living is the essence of summer.Keep that summer spirit alive, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with these ideas:* Plan a weekday wind-down hour with family and friends. Meet in a local park and bring along a simple spread of fresh grapes from California, your favorite cheese and a loaf of good French bread — and don’t forget the wine. Grab a Frisbee to toss around or a kite to fly, and have a little pre-dinner summer fun.* Head outside to enjoy your morning cup of coffee and breakfast before heading off to work. The perfect start to your summer day? Mix Greek yogurt together with fresh grapes and a sprinkle of granola.* If your community offers outdoor summer concerts, pack up a picnic dinner and head on down. Grape Picnic Salad (recipe follows) is the perfect side dish — it’s quick and easy to make, travels well and you can toss it together the night before. Add a rotisserie chicken to accompany the salad and you’re set!* After work, grab a book and head to the hammock or chaise in your yard, or a bench in the park, and relax for a bit. Enhance the experience by bringing a bowl of cooling grapes to nosh on while you “chill” out with that good book.* Make summer-inspired meals at home instead of going out to eat, and enjoy a leisurely dinner on your patio where a table is always available. The recipe for Shrimp and Grape Quesadillas shown below takes just a few minutes to make, so you don’t have to spend all your time in the kitchen on a beautiful summer night. Add a bagged Southwestern Salad kit to round out the meal, and you’ve got a delicious Latin-inspired meal in minutes!Shrimp and Grape QuesadillasServes 4Ingredients1 pound large cooked shrimp, shelled1 tablespoon lime juice1-2 tablespoons chopped Fresno chile pepper1/2 teaspoon ground cuminKosher salt and freshly ground black pepper4 8-inch flour tortillas1 1/2 cups grated reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese1 cup halved green or red California grapesDirectionsIn a large bowl, combine the shrimp, lime juice, Fresno chile, cumin and salt and pepper.

As regards materials, we used those that look like finish coat materials: exposed concrete (smooth and coarse), wood and glass.Save this picture!DiagramThese materials do not require the application of a finish coat over them, therefore they require low maintenance, assuming material ageing as a possible texture and using it in favor. In addition to this, from the economic point of view, they reduce costs and subcontracts.Save this picture!Section AProject´s sustainability is approached from the selection of the terrain and the implementation of the project being conscious of the orientation and the major winds, as well as with 90% of the spaces with natural light, exterior views, cross ventilation which generates not only an energetic benefit but also a more comfortable for their habitat. So, for less consumption in climatization it has been selected the use of carpentry with DVH.Save this picture!© Jeremias ThomasProject gallerySee allShow lessA Letter to the Parents of Prospective Architecture School StudentsArticlesWhere Are the Hipsters in Your City?
