USOC moves to take over USA Gymnastics in wake of sexual abuse scandal

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The U.S. Olympic Committee is seeking to revoke USA Gymnastics’ status as a member of the national governing body.The move comes in the wake of the sex abuse scandal involving USA Gymnastics national team doctor Larry Nassar, who was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison earlier this year. In a statement Monday, USOC CEO Sarah Hirshland said the decision was “not a conclusion that we have come to easily.”“In the short-term, we have to work to ensure that USAG gymnasts have the support necessary to excel on and off the field of play. We are building plans to do just that,” Hirshland said. “In the long-term, it will be the critically important responsibility of the recognized Gymnastics NGB, whether the existing organization or a new one, to lead gymnastics in the United States and build on the supportive community of athletes and clubs that can carry the sport forward for decades to come. We are prepared to identify and help build such an organization,” she added.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

first_imgPanoro will acquire 14.25% stake in Block G offshore Equatorial Guinea, and an additional 10% stake in an offshore Gabon asset Panoro Energy currently has a stake of 7.5% in the Dussafu asset. (Credit: Panoro Energy) Tullow Oil has agreed to sell its oil producing assets offshore Equatorial Guinea and the Dussafu asset in Gabonese waters to Panoro Energy for a total of up to $180m.In this connection, the parties have signed two separate sale and purchase agreements.Panoro Energy will acquire a stake of 14.25% in Block G in the territorial waters of Equatorial Guinea.The Equatorial Guinea asset is made up of six producing oil fields in water depths of 50-850m, located nearly 35km from shore. Production from Block G began in 2000 through the Ceiba field.Currently, the net production from Block G is around 4,500 barrels of oil per day (bopd), with a potential to increase to nearly 8,000bopd net in 2023-25.Trident Energy is the operator of Block G with a stake of 40.37%, while Kosmos Energy (40.37%) and GEPetrol (5%) are the other partners.As per the second deal, Panoro Energy will acquire an additional stake of 10% in Dussafu Marin Permit, offshore Gabon. Through its subsidiary Pan Petroleum Gabon, Panoro Energy currently has a stake of 7.5% in the Dussafu asset.The Dussafu asset is currently producing around 15,000bopd gross from the Tortue field. It is expected to ramp up to about 20,000bopd this year by adding two more wells at Tortue.Furthermore, the Hibiscus/Ruche development in the asset is estimated to increase the production to nearly 40,000bopd in 2023. Further growth potential is anticipated through the Hibiscus/Ruche phase 2 project.The Dussafu permit also contains the Ruche North East, Moubenga, and Walt Whitman discoveries.The other partners of the Dussafu permit are operator BW Energy Gabon (73.5%) and Gabon Oil (9%).Tullow Oil CEO Rahul Dhir said: “These are important, value accretive deals for Tullow that will have a positive effect on our financial position as we look to further reduce our net debt and continue constructive discussions with our creditors. These transactions are also in line with our strategy of investing our capital on cash-generative, high return investment opportunities in our core portfolio.”The consideration for the Equatorial Guinea assets is $105m, for the Dussafu asset is $70m, and an additional $5m to be paid after the closing of the two deals.For the Equatorial Guinea assets, the Norway-based Panoro Energy will pay upfront $89m in cash and conditional cash payments of up to $16m based on asset performance and oil price.The second transaction will see the Norwegian oil and gas firm pay $46m upfront in cash and contingent payments of up to $24m depending upon asset performance and oil price.Panoro Energy CEO John Hamilton said: “These truly transformational Acquisitions will establish Panoro as one of the world’s leading independent E&P companies focussed on Africa. We are purchasing high-quality, low operating cost assets, substantial production and material reserves in West Africa.“These are highly accretive assets that deliver a major change in our operational and financial profile, and position the Company well to generate sustainable long-term value for our shareholders.”The deals are expected to be closed in the first half of this year, subject to receipt of the required approvals and meeting of customary conditions.last_img read more

Property sales market shines north of the border as London struggles

first_imgDo you run or work for an agency in the North? Then you may be heartened by the latest property sales figures from Your Move and Reeds Rains.They show that, while London and the South East are facing an alarming and continuing slump in sales, the north is proving much more resilient.The number of transactions in the North increased by 10% over the past three months (February to April) and increased by 6% in the North West, 7% in Yorkshire and Humberside, 6% in the West Midlands and 13% in Wales.In contrast, the two companies say, transactions in London have plummeted by 19% over the past three months in Greater London, and 7% in the South East.West Midlands property salesThe figures also underpin what developers have known for some time – that Birmingham and the West Midlands are the property hotspots of the UK at the moment.Not only are transaction increasing, but house prices in the region are up 5.1% so far this year, while neighbour Shropshire has seen prices increase by 7.1% over the same period.“The market remains resilient and there’s encouraging activity in the North, but we need to urgently address the serious blockages in house building holding back labour mobility and economic competitiveness in too many areas of the country,” says Oliver Blake, Managing Director of Your Move and Reeds Rains (pictured, left).Oliver also says the election, despite the long campaigning window, had little effect on house prices, which tend to stall during the run up to major political events.“After a slow start to the year, house prices in England and Wales rallied to a new peak in May,” he says.“The uncertainty of a General Election did little to dampen the market, with the average price up 0.3% to £303,200. The value of the average home has now increased £13,934, or 4.8%, in the last 12 months.” Oliver Blake Reed Rains Your Move June 12, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Landlord and lettings agency director fined £9,000 over freezing, damp house

Countrywide critic backs short-lets platform taking on Airbnb

first_imgHome » News » Countrywide critic backs short-lets platform taking on Airbnb previous nextProptechCountrywide critic backs short-lets platform taking on AirbnbRobin Paterson has joined the team at Stayo, which hopes to make hay while Airbnb struggles post-Covid.Nigel Lewis8th September 20200623 Views Leading estate agency figure Robert Paterson has stepped in to help a rental platform hoping to make hay from Airbnb difficulties in London.Paterson, who helped develop many of today’s best-known brands including Barnard Marcus, Sotheby’s Realty and Hamptons International, is currently both leading a campaign to highlight the shortcomings of Countrywide’s management.But he is now backing Stayo, an upmarket serviced apartment platform formerly known as London Central Stay.Stayo, which used to operate 80 apartments in central London before Covid, was forced to hand back the keys to over half its stock to landlords as lockdown battered the corporate and holiday short-stay rental market in the capital.The company has now retrenched, rebranded to Stayo and with fresh funding from Paterson is now on a major expansion push which MD Oliviero Ursino hopes will see it expand to 300 units as Covid recedes.Airbnb difficulties“We’re aiming to take advantage of Airbnb’s difficulties – it’s been bleeding landlords since Covid struck, many of whom have returned to the long-term renting market,” he says.“We’re like Airbnb in many ways but obviously we only source properties from larger, institutional landlords, rather than leasing properties from lots of single ones.“So we we’re planning to build market share in this sector really quickly and we’re looking for larger blocks of 20 to 60 apartments.”Stayo is also launching an ‘experiences’ package very similar to Airbnb’s to enhance visitor’s stays as it believes that, post-Covid, the self-catering market will come back strongly as people shy away from hotels.Stayo Robin Paterson airbnb Countrywide September 8, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
