News story: British Steel Limited in liquidation: information for customers, employees and creditors

first_img The sale of British Steel is the culmination of nine months of work to transition this business to a new owner committed to its future. I am grateful to the British Steel workforce for their professionalism during difficult times as the business continued to trade and to its customers who have continued to show their confidence in the products the company produces. This show of commitment was an essential element in concluding the sale. My team and the Special Managers at EY are very pleased to have completed the sale. This is the best outcome in the liquidation and also ensures continued high-quality raw steel production in Scunthorpe. Maintaining the business in challenging market conditions whilst the right deal was secured, is testament to the commitment of BSL’s employees, customers, suppliers and the Trade Unions. Without it, the most likely outcome would have been the closure of the business, the loss of its rich heritage and significant impact on BSL’s supply-chain. We would particularly like to thank the BSL workforce for their loyalty, through what has been an uncertain and difficult time for them and their families. The way that they have continued to produce a world leading product is a tribute to their ingenuity and desire to keep this business alive.

FORMER SCOTLAND STAR BRANDS MCGEADY AND MCCARTHY ‘TRAITORS’ AHEAD OF CRUCIAL EURO 2016 CLASH

first_imgGordon McQueen hopes Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy receive a hostile reception from Scotland fans on Friday night.Former Scotland star Gordon McQueen has branded Aiden McGeady and James McCarthy ‘traitors’ ahead of Scotland’s clash with Ireland at Celtic Park on Friday night.McGeady and McCarthy both qualify to play for Ireland because of their Donegal heritage.Their grandfathers both come from Gweedore, and the Everton duo opted to play for the Republic of Ireland ahead of the country in which they were born in. Former Manchester United and Leeds United star has stoked the flames ahead of a potentially toxic atmosphere on Friday night.McQueen said, “I’ve got no time for these players. You’re born in Glasgow but then you go and play for somebody else?“What’s that all about? I’m not having that at all. Will it be hard for them coming back here with Ireland?“I really hope so. I hope they get a horrible reception because they deserve it. McQueen further endeared himself to Irish fans by revealing his confidence that Scotland would record a victory they need to stay in the hunt for qualification.“Personally, I would think that we will qualify but I would be ashamed if we didn’t because just about everybody gets to these finals – 24 countries. Surely we can do that? FORMER SCOTLAND STAR BRANDS MCGEADY AND MCCARTHY ‘TRAITORS’ AHEAD OF CRUCIAL EURO 2016 CLASH was last modified: November 10th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Euro 2016Gordon McQueenIrelandnewsScotlandSportlast_img read more

Half-time: Walsall 1 Chelsea 2

first_imgGoals from Ramires and Loic Remy put Chelsea firmly on course for the fourth round of the League Cup before James O’Connor pulled one back just before half-time.Kenedy, making his full debut, crossed from the left for fellow Brazilian Ramires to head past former Fulham keeper Neil Etheridge.Remy missed a chance to make it 2-0 on 36 minutes when he was unable to force the loose ball home after Paul Downing’s goal-line clearance had denied Radamel Falcao.But the Frenchman made no mistake when Ramires ran at the Walsall defence and teed him up five minutes later.Remy walloped past Etheridge and into the roof of the net – the striker’s first goal of the season.League One side Walsall battled on and were rewarded when O’Connor’s scuffed follow-up trickled over the line after keeper Asmir Begovic had parried a free-kick from former Chelsea youngster Milan Lalkovic.Chelsea: Begovic, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Ramires, Kenedy, Remy, Falcao.Subs: Blackman, Hazard, Traore, Pedro, Matic, Aina, Djilobodji.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Boost for polio campaign in Angola

first_imgA child receives the polio vaccine inSenegal during the Joint Global PolioEradication Initiative.(Image: Irin Photo)MEDIA CONTACTS • Ben ParkerDirector, Irin News+254 733 860082Source: Irin NewsThe Angolan government is preparing to renew efforts to eradicate polio with support from global partners, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which has made polio eradication its top priority.Angola succeeded in stamping out polio for three consecutive years at the beginning of the century, but a strain of the virus prevalent in India reappeared in 2005 and has since spread to the neighbouring countries of Namibia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo.In 2010, 32 people in Angola contracted the highly infectious, non-curable disease, which can cause total paralysis in hours.“Polio eradication is a global goal; if we fail in one country, then the whole programme fails,” Jos Vandalaer, head of Unicef’s global immunisation effort, told Irin by telephone from Luanda.Angola’s health system, still recovering from years of war, only managed to fully vaccinate 35% of infants in 2009.According to Unicef, supplementary immunisation campaigns have been beset by a lack of manpower, technical capacity and planning, particularly in Luanda where most of the polio cases in recent years have been concentrated.Since the war, Luanda’s population has boomed, and many of the rural migrants live in cramped conditions with little access to safe water and sanitation. Such conditions are ideal for the spread of polio, which is transmitted through faecal-oral contact.During a January meeting with Anthony Lake, Unicef’s executive director, and Tachi Yamada, president of the Gates Foundation’s global health programme, Angolan president José Eduardo dos Santos reaffirmed the government’s commitment to eradicating polio.The strategy consists of better surveillance of new polio cases, accelerated routine immunisation of children, better quality vaccination drives, and a campaign to promote household water treatment and hygiene.Final countdown Tim Peterson of the Gates Foundation, which has donated more than US$1-billion (R7.1-billion) globally to polio eradication and pledged funds for Angola’s national campaign, pointed out that the effort to rid the world of polio were “on the verge of success. There’s been a more than 99% reduction in cases since 1988,” he told Irin. “This is the final push and you don’t stop running a race a few hundred yards from the end.”Peterson added that investing in polio surveillance and immunisation programmes was a stepping stone towards the delivery of more vaccines and firmer action against other vaccine-preventable diseases.The Gates Foundation and other partners have agreed to support the Angolan government to improve its delivery of vaccination programmes, but Vandalaer said the success of the country’s polio campaign would depend on the leadership behind it.“It’s only the government that can provide this programme,” he said. “We’re just here to help fill the gaps.”last_img read more

Ohio’s Marmon Valley fertile in faith and agriculture

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Out of the otherwise flat ground of west central Ohio arise the hills of the Bellefontaine Ridge where Ohio’s highest point stands and fertile valleys lay between the peaks. Named for the three Marmon brothers that settled the area in 1805 to get away from the slavery trade in the Carolinas, the Marmon Valley Farm has served as a place fertile in faith and rich in agriculture for many years.Though the settled valley is old, evidenced by a neighboring church founded in 1807, the Logan County farm stays extremely active. Matt Wiley is the executive director of the 510-acre horse operation that specializes in “agri-tainment.” About 250 of its 510 acres are used for trails through woods in the hilly region.Wiley defines the agri-tainment on his farm as, “doing those activities but yet still in a way that entertains through agricultural connections.”“Wrangler Matt” as he’s known on the farm, has been with the operation started by his father since it’s beginning in 1964, recently celebrating its 50th year.“I was pretty active in the FFA as a high schooler and my dad taught me a lot of basic things growing up. Of course the trail riding, calling some square dances, and driving hayrides and all of that,” Wiley said. “So then through the FFA and vo-ag connection, I was able to use those skills to go all the way to nationals for the Recreational Proficiency Award. When I was 21 and my sister was 23, my dad moved to another location where another camp was already founded. Just through phone calls and direction from him, we kept the place going and kept expanding.”The operation offers a variety of programs throughout the year with a horse focus from summer camps to riding sessions for people of all ages and backgrounds. One of their more unique offerings is an eight-week group lesson package.“It’s about an hour and a half program. They get a little bit of groom and saddle time, the arena time, plus a trail ride with the instructor’s help — just working on progressing their skill levels,” Wiley said. “We’ve had more than one family do that because they’re considering buying a horse, but they want to see if their child is set on that before that family takes the step to make a purchase. It’s a huge step so a lot of families kind of test the waters here before they make a plunge to get their own horse.”“Each day is different. The seasons, of course, change. In the wintertime, we serve guests that go skiing right across the way at Mad River Mountain. They’ll stay at our lodging and we cook some good meals for them and so on.”The farm is home to around 150 horses.“We have a mix of breeds. Quarter horses work out well,” Wiley said. “We also have some Arabians, even a few thoroughbreds. We’ve got, of course, some Shetland Ponies in the mix, and some Halflingers — so quite a variety of breeds.”The numerous old barns that make up the property have been converted into more suitable structures for today’s needs. For instance, what used to be the dairy barn now houses a petting zoo on the ground floor and a hay maze, climbing wall, and dance floor in the haymow. The bull barn has been transformed into a bunny barn, and many other old structures now serve as bunkhouses.The farm also produces about 120 acres of hay for the horses.“We do mostly all of it ourselves. We do sometimes buy a little bit of hay here and there,” he said.It works out to an average of 2,500 small square bales and usually 1,000 to 1,200 round bales.“With 150 horses, you still have to have some farming practices in agri-tainment,” he said.Marmon Valley Farm deals with weather struggles like most agricultural operations. The cold of Ohio’s winters over the past years have been a challenge for keeping guests comfortable. Wiley noted thatThrough horse-related activities like trail riding, Marmon Valley Farm entertains and educates visitors.though the indoor arena is not heated, the protection from the wind is usually enough to make things bearable even on the coldest of days.“We’ve had on a Saturday morning at zero degrees more than one parent call and ask, ‘are lessons still on?’” he said. “It really hasn’t slowed us down a whole lot. There’s been a couple of days we’ve had to cancel if it’s too extreme.”The rainy weather of 2015 also created a number of challenges.“Even last summer with the rains, we had to completely flip flop as we usually do our riding in the morning,” he said. “When you have a program that involves horses, weather, and people, you have to be flexible. ‘Liquid sunshine’ is term my dad used to use to encourage guests to still have fun on a rainy day.”Year-round, eight to 10 people are on staff. Weekend part-time help is also used, usually high schoolers or other interested individuals. About 30 to 35 are hired for the summer through Marmon Valley Ministries, a 501(c) 3 non-profit that leases the land from the family corporation, opening up scholarship and other opportunities for summer campers.Marmon Valley Farm is a faith-based operation, seeking to spread the Christian message to all who come to visit.“Primarily, the summer camp is our way of reaching a lot of city kids to not just do the fun camp activities, but also introducing the Christian atmosphere using the horse as a neat way to share Christ, “ Wiley said. “There are a lot of teachable moments we try to tie in. We encourage our staff, whether you’re doing archery, riding the horses, or playing a game, to try and take a moment for that teachable time to really focus on Christ.”Being such a short jaunt from the Columbus metro area, Wiley says being a positive representative of the agricultural world is another constant focus.“We’re also finding more and more that agricultural education to those folks is very important these days,” Wiley said. “On a school field trip, we’ll do the animal tour, hay ride, and pony rides so we can teach them about hay and straw, and teach them that yes, we do still get our eggs from chickens.“If you can hire and educate a city boy on your farm, I try to take advantage of that opportunity too, because again just having those connections to whatever we can do as agriculturalists to educate is vital in today’s day and age. Even in our lesson program, the child gets a chance to groom and saddle the horse. They realize the importance of the work involved. We don’t always have them scoop the manure and all that, but every now and then a child will ask if they can. There’s this neat opportunity for us to share with the general public. I just see more and more the need to connect.”For more about Marmon Valley Farm, visit www.marmonvalley.com.last_img read more

Huawei Honor 6X gets price cut, still can’t beat Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

first_imgHuawei’s spin-off brand Honor launched the Honor 6X in India in January at a starting price of Rs 12,999 for the base 3GB RAM model going all the way up to Rs 15,999 for the top-end 4GB RAM model. On Tuesday, the brand announced that the Honor 6X will be available at a discounted price of Rs 11,999 and Rs 13,999 respectively. It’s not a bad price considering that the Honor 6X is (still) very much a jack of all trades, which means that it is quite good actually. But, it isn’t the best. The Redmi Note 4 from Xiaomi is a better buy. Not to mention, that the Redmi Note 4 is more affordable as well.Both the Redmi Note 4 and the Honor 6X look like expensive phones, but both of them aren’t expensive at all. The Redmi Note 4 is, without a doubt, the better looking of the two. With its curved 2.5D glass and polished antenna lines, Xiaomi’s phone looks distinctly different and distinctly (more) premium than Honor’s 6X. Xiaomi’s phone also holds an edge in terms of all-round build and form factor. The Redmi Note 4 weighs in at just over 160 grams, which isn’t quite that much when you consider the fact that it’s housing a 4,100mAh battery inside. What is remarkable, however, is that even though it crams in such a big battery inside, the phone feels practically the same no matter how you hold it.The Honor 6X may not be as good-looking but it is certainly more ergonomic. Unlike a phone like the Redmi Note 4, the Honor 6X comes with more dramatic curves on the rear and a front panel that sticks out as flat as a pancake. The phone, as a result, feels sharp(er) in the hands when you hold it for the first time. The design then grows on you, so much so that you start to appreciate it. No other smartphone at its price point offers better ergonomics, after all. Sadly, its build quality remains questionable. The Honor 6X maybe an all-metal phone but it doesn’t actually feel like one. It feels plastic in the hands, something which is accentuated (even) further when you apply a little bit of pressure on its backside. The Redmi Note 4 feels much sturdier.The Honor 6X’s screen-to-body ratio also leaves a lot to be desired. In fact, Honor’s new phone has some of the chunkiest bezels in (and around) its price point. The Redmi Note 4, in comparison, offers slimmer bezels and hence more real estate.The 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display on-board the Redmi Note 4 does well most of the time unless you’re out and about in direct sunlight. Its (above) average brightness levels feel lacking when you’re out and about. Also, the screen is prone to reflection which adds up, hampering the phone’s outdoor legibility further. But, the screen of the Redmi Note 4 handles — and reproduces — colours so well you don’t mind that it’s not as bright as the company’s more expensive phones.The 5.5-inch 1080p display on-board the Honor 6X meanwhile gets pleasantly bright and viewing angles are also quite good. The two when put together ensure the phone is perfectly usable under direct sunlight. At the same time, because the phone uses an LTPS panel, it runs cooler than standard LCD-toting phones (for instance, the Redmi Note 4). Sadly, colour accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. They appear washed out, or more precisely, lacking in contrast when compared to a phone like the Redmi Note 4.The Honor 6X is powered by a 2.1GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor clubbed with Mali-T830MP2 GPU. The phone comes with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal memory. Expandable storage — of up to 256GB — is supported via a hybrid micro-SD card slot. The Redmi Note 4 is meanwhile powered by a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with Adreno 506 GPU. The Redmi Note 4 is available in three versions: 2GB RAM and 32GB memory, 3GB RAM and 32GB memory, and another with 4GB RAM and 64GB memory. All the versions of the Redmi Note 4 support expandable storage of up to 128GB via a hybrid microSD card slot.Unlike a phone like the Redmi Note 4 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 625) which uses a chipset built on the power-efficient 14nm finfet process, the custom-built Kirin 655 which is inside the Honor 6X is based on a 16nm finfet process. Both the chipsets are however guided by the same principle, which is, attaining higher clock speeds without overheating and draining the battery quickly. There are (of course) differences but for most users it would all narrow down to this: you’re more likely to get (much) better battery life and little (or no) overheating in phones powered by a chipset on the lines of a Snapdragon 625 or a Kirin 655. Honor holds an edge (over Xiaomi) however, in that — just like Apple — it has complete control over both its hardware and software which invariably should entail in better all-round optimisation. Better all-round optimisation means Honor’s phone should ideally be the smoothest of the lot. It is, but, only marginally.Both the phones are quick and responsive in every sense of the word. Xiaomi’s phone, however, holds a slight edge when it comes to GPU-intensive gaming because the Adreno 506 GPU inside it is slightly more potent than the Mali GPU inside the Honor 6X. The Honor 6X is, as a result, prone to some occasional lags while playing graphical games at maxed out settings for longer periods.The Honor 6X runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based EMUI 4.1. An update to Android Nougat (EMUI 5) is already out for the phone in question. It will allow you to access an app drawer for one, among other things. The Redmi Note 4, on the other hand, comes with Android Marshmallow-based MIUI and an update to Android Nougat is also in the cards. Huawei’s Emotion UI may not be as visually appealing as Xiaomi’s MIUI, but it is feature packed to the brim, and is very, very slick provided you’re the kind of person who’s as curious as a cat and likes to dig into things. The Emotion UI has a number of useful Easter eggs scattered all across its length and breadth. Some of the notable features of Xiaomi’s MIUI are scrollable screenshots, second space and dual apps. Additionally, the Redmi Note 4 comes with an IR-blaster that can be used (in tandem with the Mi Remote app or even some third-party solutions) to control smart home appliances.Both the phones support 4G LTE and dual-SIM connectivity. The single speaker out on-board the Honor 6X – that supports DTS audio as well – is louder in comparison to the one on-board the Redmi Note 4.The Honor 6X comes with not one, but two cameras on the rear. On the front it comes with an 8-megapixel camera. The dual camera setup consists of a 12-megapixel + 2-megapixel setup assisted with phase detection autofocus and LED flash. While the 12-megapixel lens is what you can a regular lens, the 2-megapixel lens is capable of depth sensing so users can attain software-enhanced background blur in photos post clicking a shot. The dual rear camera system on-board the Honor 6X can assist (only) in achieving fancy bokeh effects in shots both before and after taking a shot. The second 2MP sensor springs into action only when you hit a dedicated wide aperture mode that sits up top in the camera app at all times. It works best when your subject is within 2 metres. It works even better when it’s in isolation and the subjects in the background are at some distance. It works really well when everything’s in place, which means you’ll have to be absolutely committed to it if you’re looking for good results. The 12-megapixel primary lens however clicks only above-average photos even in ideal lighting. Dynamic range leaves a lot to be desired and photos are often marred by metering (underexposure) issues. Although some of these photos look brilliant on the phone, when viewed on full-screen these tend to have noise, the level of which rises even further as the intensity of light decreases.The Redmi Note 4, on the hand sports a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, phase-detection autofocus along with a dual-LED (dual-tone) flash. On the front, you get a 5-megapixel snapper. The phone captures some good-looking photos — with occasional softness — in good light with good amount of detail and mostly spot-on (if a little oversaturated) colours. Dynamic range could have been better but it’s still better in than something that the Honor 6X offers. Also, the Redmi Note 4, surprisingly, does well in macro photography scenarios which means close-up shots come out well (enough) when the light is adequate. Xiaomi’s new phone is also able to capture well to-do photos — with occasional softness — in tricky light situations with good detail.The Redmi Note 4 is backed by a massive 4,100mAh battery, which is non-removable. Moderate to extreme usage saw us cross the one whole day barrier with ease, while toning down further should get most users one and a half to two days out of the phone. Extreme usage scenarios got us close to 15 hours on the Redmi Note 4, which is phenomenal. The 3,340mAh battery inside the Honor 6X may not last you as long as the massive 4,100mAh battery inside the Redmi Note 4. But it is no slouch either. Moderate to extreme usage saw us cross the one whole day barrier with ease, while toning down further should get most users one and a half days out of the phone. Extreme usage scenarios got us close to 11 hours on the Honor 6X, which is not bad at all.Both the phones are very dependable and very value for money. But, the Redmi Note 4 is slightly better. Xiaomi’s phone offers a better screen, better all-round performance, better set of cameras and better battery life. The Honor 6X is not very far behind but, it is, marginally.advertisementadvertisementadvertisementAlso Read: iOS 11 at WWDC 2017: 11 features that make it Apple’s biggest iOS update to datelast_img read more
