New Delhi, Oct 7 (PTI) Jaiprakash Associates Ltd (JAL) today said its board had approved the transfer of certain assets and liabilities, including a debt of over Rs 11,834 crore, to its subsidiary Jaypee Infrastructure Development Ltd as part of its efforts to cut the overall borrowing of the company.The company had called a board meeting to consider the recommendations of the audit committee on the debt restructuring process approved by the Joint Lenders Forum.The JAL board “has consented to carry forward the same through the scheme of demerger of the identified assets and liabilities” into a wholly owned subsidiary of the company, it informed the BSE in a regulatory filing.”The scheme envisages a demerger of the undertaking comprising identified movable assets and liabilities to and vested in the wholly owned subsidiary of the company, namely Jaypee Infrastructure Development Ltd, as a going concern,” it added.It further said that there would be no change in the shareholding pattern of the transferor company as the “allotment of share by the transferee company against consideration is envisaged in favour of the transferor company itself”.”Similarly, no change in the shareholding pattern of the transferee company is envisaged as it will continue to be a wholly owned subsidiary of the transferor company,” it added.There is no cash consideration in the scheme.”The transferee company shall allot one lakh equity shares of Rs 10 each at par to the transferor company under a slump exchange,” it said.The flagship firm of the debt-ridden Jaypee group is a diversified infrastructure company engaged in engineering, construction or real estate development, manufacture or marketing of cement, hospitality and sports management.advertisementLast month, Jaiprakash Associates had said it had taken various steps to reduce its debt, including sale of its cement plants.To revive its business operations and repay the debt, the company divested a substantial portion of its cement business, with a capacity of 17.2 million tonnes per annum, to UltraTech Cement at an enterprise value of Rs 16,189 crore.”The transaction stood consummated on June 29, 2017 and that has resulted in reduction of debt of approximately Rs 14,000 crore, including repayment of outstanding loans to banks/FIs, part payment to holders of FCCBs (foreign currency convertible bonds), repayment of almost all outstanding fixed deposits and interest thereon and other priority payments,” it had said earlier.The company also plans to sell its entire 74 per cent stake in Bhilai Jaypee Cement Ltd to Orient Cement Ltd at a total enterprise value of Rs 1,450 crore, which is expected to be consummated by December 31.Bhilai Jaypee Cement owns a 1.1 million tonnes per annum clinker plant at Satna in Madhya Pradesh and a 2.2 million tonnes per annum cement grinding unit at Bhilai, Chhattisgarh.Jaypee group is facing a debt crisis and its group firm Jaypee Infratech has been taken over by a National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT)-appointed IRP for the recovery of bad loans.The group is facing a huge protest from home buyers because of significant delays in delivery of projects.

New Brunswick dentist Cindy McCormick was a fearless, vibrant woman, known as much for belting out karaoke tunes as for constantly changing her colourful hairstyles.She was even a contestant on the reality television series “Wipeout Canada” in 2011.“She had it all: She was the jock, she was the brainiac, she was gorgeous. And she was so humble,” says close friend Pamela Wilson Sydor.“I’ll never meet anyone like her again. She was sensational.”McCormick was killed last weekend while attending a dental conference in Alberta.RCMP said her body was discovered Sunday afternoon in a room at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the mountain resort community. About two hours earlier, officers had responded to a call of a 52-year-old man found dead in a vehicle about 35 kilometres west into British Columbia near Emerald Lake.Police confirmed the two cases are linked. An autopsy showed the woman’s death was a homicide and the man’s death was not criminal, and officers say they are not looking for other suspects.Sydor identified the man as McCormick’s boyfriend, Bobby Kaine, a member of the Saint John, N.B., fire department.The pair, both divorced, started dating a few years ago and had moved in together, said Sydor. McCormick, owner of Bayside Dental Clinic, had two teenagers and Kaine had a grown son and grandchildren. They both grew up in the town of Nackawic, N.B.Sydor of White Rock, B.C., was raised in Nackawic as well and knows both families. Kaine took her sons camping last summer and they adored him.“It seemed like a good match. It really did,” said Sydor, who last saw the couple at a wedding in northern Alberta in September. She said her 46-year-old friend had streaks of pink and blue her in blond hair and looked happy.“What I saw was a couple enjoying life.”She said she was shocked to learn Kaine and McCormick were dead. She wasn’t aware that the couple had problems.“She never told me anything and she tells me everything,” Sydor said.McCormick had invited her to join the couple in Lake Louise but she chose not to go, she added.“What a nightmare,” said fellow Saint John dentist Jim Craft.He didn’t attend the Dental Technology and Business Growth Summit with McCormick, he said, but word of her death spread quickly.Working together on different dental boards, they rotated hosting lobster parties at each others’ homes. She was funny and fearless, took her family camping in the winter and played hockey, Craft said. He believes that’s how she met Kaine, who also played and coached the sport.It’s unimaginable that such a tough woman could be the victim of domestic violence, he said.Bob Hatheway, president of the New Brunswick Dental Society, considered McCormick a close friend. He visited her clinic Wednesday and said patients who didn’t even have appointments were stopping by to give their condolences and drop off flowers.Everyone will miss her, he said.“She had this big beaming smile. As soon as she walked in the room, you knew the life of the party had just arrived.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version had McCormick’s age as 44.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been honoured with Russia’s highest state decoration, the Order of St Andrew the Apostle, for his role in promoting close ties between the two countries.The award comes days after the United Arab Emirates announced conferring Modi with ‘The Order of Zayed’. The Russian government said Modi is given the highest state decoration of Russia for “exceptional services” in promoting special and privileged strategic partnership between Russia and India and friendly relations between the Russian and Indian peoples. A Russian official said the ‘Order of St Andrew the Apostle’ is awarded to prominent statesmen, public figures and those working in the fields of science, culture and arts in recognition of their exceptional services in promoting prosperity and glory of Russia. The order can also be awarded to foreign heads of state for outstanding services. The Order of St Andrew the Apostle is the highest order of the Russian Federation. The foreign awardees of the award included President of China Xi Jinping, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev and President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Geydar Aliev. The award ceremony is usually held at the St Andrew Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace. The Order was established in 1698 by Tsar Peter the Great, in honour of Saint Andrew, the first apostle of Jesus and patron saint of Russia, said the official.
This initiative, run in concert by the Government, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and other partners, is the first of its kind in Latin America.“Only by addressing the specific needs, as well as the human rights of women, will we change the course of the epidemic,” said Alanna Armitage, UNFPA’s Representative in Brazil, asserting that the programme will “make a real difference in women’s lives.”The scheme aims to expand voluntary counselling and testing to double the number of women being tested, including pregnant women; reduce mother-to-child HIV transmissions from 4 to less than 1 per cent by 2008; eliminate congenital syphilis; and increase investment in HIV research.It is estimated that as of last year, 17.7 million women are infected with HIV worldwide, and since 1985, the percentage of women among adults living with HIV/AIDS has globally increased from 35 per cent to 48 per cent.In Brazil, HIV infection has surged 44 per cent among women between 1996 and 2005, and women represent over 40 per cent of all registered cases of HIV as of 2005. The initiative, being launched on the eve of International Women’s Day, is widely viewed as critical.“The rise in the number of infections among women is a global phenomenon, which reflects the inequalities in power relations between women and men, and it demands specific attention,” said Ana Falú, UNIFEM Regional Programme Director for Brazil and the Southern Cone. “That’s why the Brazilian plan is so important.” 7 March 2007United Nations agencies and the Brazilian Government today launched a ground-breaking programme aimed at stemming the ‘feminization of HIV,’ raising awareness about the disease and helping women become less vulnerable to it.

Moving income into poor households, not increasing GDP (gross domestic product), is the key to solving poverty and related ills as the world seeks a development agenda to succeed the anti-poverty Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Malawian President Joyce Banda told the United Nations General Assembly today. “The issues that affect population growth, malnutrition, girls’ access to education, maternal health are all rooted in poverty and particularly lack of income at the household level,” she said on the first day of the annual General Debate, adding that those who suggest the best strategy to achieve the MDGs is to realize GDP growth are presupposing a top down approach.“If we have to overcome these challenges, we need to promote policies and programmes that bring decent incomes into households,” she stressed. “If we cannot uplift the people that are in our rural areas, as is the case for many developing countries, to earn decent income in the household, the vicious cycle of population growth, malnutrition, maternal risks and poverty will remain with us. If the Post-2015 Development Agenda is to realize its dream, we need to go to the grassroots where the poor are.” The post-2015 agenda, the theme of the 68th General Assembly, aims to set the stage for sustainable development in the decades after the expiry of the 15-year MDGs cycle, the eight targets that seek to slash extreme hunger and poverty, boost access to health care and education, achieve gender equality and environmental stability, and reduce maternal and child mortality and the incidence of HIV/AIDS, all by the end of 2015.Ms. Banda said Malawi is on track to achieve four of the eight MDGs – reducing child mortality; combating HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases; ensuring environmental sustainability; and developing a global partnership for development.“However, we are unlikely to meet the goals for eradicating extreme poverty and hunger; achieving universal access to education; ensuring gender equality and empowerment of women; reducing child mortality and improving maternal health,” she added.But she noted that Malawi is registering a strong economic recovery through the painful but necessary reforms her Government has undertaken to address political and economic governance problems that she inherited. “I sought to achieve macroeconomic stability, restore the rule of law, and the observance of human rights,” she said, reporting that foreign exchange and fuel are available, the currency has stabilized, inflation is declining, and industrial production is up from 30 per cent in 2012 to 75 per cent in 2013. Economic growth is forecast at five per cent this year, up from 1.8 per cent last year and Malawians are once again enjoying their freedoms and civil liberties as enshrined in the constitution, she added.One of scores of leaders to speak at the annual General Assembly session, Ms. Banda will join other heads of State and Government and high-level officials to present views and comments on issues of individual national and international relevance.
Watch the full morning ceremony here:Watch the full afternoon ceremony here: Antwi Boasiako knows too well the ravages of HIV/AIDS. He watched as his best friend died of the autoimmune disease at the age of 20, only two years after being diagnosed.Growing up in Ghana, he said HIV/AIDS was highly prevalent, but also widely stigmatized.While battling the disease, his friend was no longer able to attend classes. Boasiako visited him and tutored him.“I was always looking to honour his memory and his life,” Boasiako said. “He was like a brother.”The Master’s of Political Science graduate found a way by volunteering with Positive Living Niagara while studying at Brock University.He has served in many roles at the organization from community outreach and advocacy to planning committee member and researcher.Antwi Boasiako is a graduate student in the Faculty of Social Sciences who was presented with the Spirit of Brock award at Spring Convocation.He created a database for the organization detailing the health and social profile of its clients to help it better direct services to those in need.Boasiako, an international student from Ghana, was awarded the graduate student Board of Trustees Spirit of Brock Award Tuesday during the Faculty of Social Sciences convocation.Winnie Murombedzi, Positive Living Niagara’s education and support co-ordinator, said Boasiako is “a true change agent and a global citizen who is committed to the social transformation of the lives of HIV/AIDS clients.”Boasiako said getting the award is the most prestigious honour he’s had in his academic career.“It’s the perfect icing on the cake for what has been an inspiring graduate studies program,” he said.Boasiako was one of 3,513 students who will cross the stage for their degrees this week.The undergraduate student Spirit of Brock award went to Rebecca Lepore, who studied Speech and Language Sciences at Brock.The award is given to students who demonstrate leadership, innovation, courage, inspiration and community involvement.Rebecca Lepore, an undergrad from the Faculty of Social Sciences, was the recipient of the Spirit of Brock award at Spring Convocation.The four-year member of the Brock Linguistics Network executive helped set up events for students and faculty and organized fundraisers. Lepore was a member of Smart Start and frequent ambassador at Brock Open House and the Ontario Universities Fair.She also received the Dean’s medal, while a second Dean’s medal for Social Sciences was given to Nicole Hinsperger.At Tuesday’s morning convocation, the Excellence in Teaching award was presented to Assistant Professor of Economics Ivan Medovikov.His colleagues praised his commitment to making “the teaching of our students a first priority.” They cite his use of innovative teaching techniques employing the latest technology in making his classes engaging for all students.His nominators emphasized his collegiality and mentorship, pointing to his willingness to share course materials he has developed, and to guide and advise his colleagues on their own teaching strategies.His teaching philosophy emphasizes clarity, creativity and student engagement. Students have called him “an excellent prof (who) made the course enjoyable and intellectually stimulating at the same time.”Honorary doctorates were presented to Liz Palmieri and Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish during convocation ceremonies Tuesday.Chancellor Shirley Cheechoo and President and Vice-Chancellor Jack Lightstone each addressed the students and shook their hands as they left the stage with their diplomas.Brock’s Spring Convocation continues Wednesday with the Faculties of Math & Science, Humanities and Education. University at Buffalo President Satish Tripathi will be presented with an honorary doctorate in the 10 a.m. ceremony.
The first day a prospect can make his commitment official is referred to as National Signing Day. This year’s National Signing Day was Wednesday and Meyer received commitments from 25 student-athletes. Several of Meyer’s recruits had previously made verbal commitments to other schools, but Meyer was successful in persuading them to officially commit at OSU. At least six of Meyers’ 25 commitments, including Dodson, were verbally committed to another school before flipping their decision and opting to play for the Buckeyes come signing day. Michigan State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Notre Dame all saw at least one recruit change his mind in favor of Meyer. It’s long been suggested that there’s an unwritten agreement within the Big Ten that once a recruit commits to a school, all other Big Ten coaches will leave the player alone. Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said such a rule existed between former OSU coach Jim Tressel and Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and indicates Meyer might be breaking the rule. “(The agreement) has been between the coaches,” Narduzzi said while speaking at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon Club Monday in Canton, Ohio, according to the Canton Repository. “Jim Tressel and Mark Dantonio would never call or talk to each other’s commitments. People coach Dantonio knows well don’t come in and take players away. When you do, you lose friendships over that.” Meyer was able to lure defensive end recruit Se’Von Pittman from the Spartans despite Pittman verbally committing to Michigan State last summer. Pittman is considered by recruiting experts to be among the top 10 players in the nation at his position. “It sets a tone and starts a recruiting rivalry,” Narduzzi said at the luncheon. “I guess it’s fair game. You don’t want it to be that way, but that’s how it is.” Meyer defended himself Wednesday at a press conference in which he and some of his assistants talked about the incoming recruiting class. “Se’Von Pittman had a relationship with Luke Fickell,” Meyer said. “I think we helped it when I made that phone call. That was one of those things, he recruited us after a little bit … He always wanted to be an Ohio State Buckeye.” And in case there was any confusion, Meyer made it clear he had no problem recruiting players already committed to other schools. “There are some people that say, ‘How can you go and recruit a young guy that’s committed to another school?’ You ask a question, ‘Are you interested?’ If they say no, you move on. If they say, ‘Yes, very interested,’ then you throw that hook out there. If they’re interested, absolutely, especially if they are from your home state.” Pittman is a Canton, Ohio, native and played high school football at McKinley High School. But Meyer said despite his competitive nature, he gets no extra joy out of flipping a recruit away from another school. “Is it gratifying to go a take a guy from another school? Not at all,” Meyer said. “Is it gratifying to know that we got the two offensive tackles that we went out from day one … ? That amazes me.” Ultimately, Meyer said it’s up to “each individual school,” whether programs will recruit players committed elsewhere. He said in some cases, the players who are already committed recruit the coaches, but if, after an initial phone call, a recruited athlete doesn’t show interest, that’s the end of it. “We went after a young guy in Cleveland, Ohio,” Meyer said. “I asked him if he was interested in Ohio State. He said no. I wished him the best of luck, do well in school, move on … If a kid isn’t interested, we’re done. We move on.” OSU fullbacks and tight ends coach Tim Hinton defended Meyer. “We really didn’t go into those to try to flip somebody,” Hinton said. “If there’s no interest in Ohio State, there was no flipping. “At that time in their life, where they were in recruiting, for the reasons they were being recruited, they had an interest. From there, it begins.” Recruiting is often called a dirty business and more than one Big Ten coach has expressed his displeasure with the way Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer goes about attracting his student-athletes. Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema shared his discontent with recruiting Wednesday at a press conference in which he introduced the Badger’s recruiting class. “There are a few things that happened early on that I made people aware of that I didn’t want to see in this league,” Bielema said. “That I had seen take place in other leagues. Other recruiting tactics, other recruiting practices that are illegal.” Bielema went on to mention Meyer specifically. “I was very up front and was very pointed to the fact, actually reached out to Coach Meyer and shared my thoughts and concerns with him,” Bielema said. “The situation got rectified.” Meyer is making no apologies though. “We’re hired to go after recruits as hard as we can,” Meyer said. “I mean as hard as we can.” Offensive lineman recruit Kyle Dodson announced Wednesday that he will attend OSU even though he was previously committed to play for Bielema at Wisconsin. The change of heart is representative of a hot-button issue surrounding recruiting in college football. The best football players from around the nation draw interest from the top programs across the country. A player can commit to a school, but that commitment doesn’t become official until the player signs his national letter of intent. Until the player puts his name on the dotted line, he is free to change his mind as many times as he wants and coaches are allowed to plead their school’s case until the ink hits the paper.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Last year produced a positive balance in terms of jobs, as within a year 99,112 more were created than those lost, even though dismissals outnumbered hirings by 91,761 in the last four months of the year, according to Labor Ministry data released on Wednesday.Out of a total 1,566,139 hirings during 2014, more than half (790,918) concerned flexible forms of labor, such as part-time or rotational employment.The Ergani database showed a slowdown in job creation last year, as the net growth of 99,122 jobs lagged 2013’s 133,488 net result. December was the fourth consecutive month when layoffs outnumbered hirings, to the tune of 834. The flow in salaried employment last month comprised 115,436 hirings and 116,270 departures. The decline compared to the same month in 2013 is considerable as hirings had overshadowed departures by 19,999 jobs a year earlier.On a yearly basis, hirings in 2014 rose by 36.3 percent from 2013 to reach 1,566,139, against 1,467,017 departures, of which 881,424 were the result of sackings or of the end of fixed-time contracts, while 585,593 concerned voluntary departures.Source: Kathimerini
This year marks La Trobe University’s 50th anniversary, which will be celebrated with a range of events throughout the year.The first major event, the Lawn Lunch, will kick off on Sunday 5 March at the La Trobe Bundoora campus, with an exciting program lined up championing the institution’s history through music, film, food and drinks, and is a chance for former students, staff and friends of the university to return and relive their glory days.“For me personally, it’s a tremendous privilege to be vice chancellor of the university when it’s going through a celebration of this sort of milestone, and there’s a huge amount to celebrate from the last 50 years,” Professor John Dewar told Neos Kosmos.Having played a significant role in maintaining Greek language education and research into the Greek Australian community, Professor Dewar also stressed the event would be an opportunity to showcase La Trobe’s cultural awareness and inclusiveness.“Cultural inclusiveness is one of the university’s greatest strengths. We have one of the most diverse student populations in the country, where new and older migrant groups are also represented very strongly among the student community. So I think to be able to symbolise all of that in the 50th anniversary celebration is a really wonderful thing,” he said.In the spirit of this ethos, the Lawn Lunch is open to everyone, with tickets including food from one of the nine social enterprise catering partners and a drink upon entry, a La Trobe memorabilia bag, as well as access to an outstanding line-up of film, music and talks from some of the people who have made La Trobe a success.The music stage has a stunning line-up of some of Australia’s finest talent, including the captivating duo Xylouris White, The Harpoons, a reunion of This is Your Captain Speaking, and comedy folk duo The Astruds. There’ll also be screenings of historical shorts from the La Trobe archives and films connected to the university’s pioneering cinema studies department and filmmakers. A Speaker’s Corner will be set up, where conversations with esteemed academic thinkers will be taking place along with the launch of the university’s new book From the paddock to the Agora – Fifty years of La Trobe University, which will be available for purchase on the day at cost price. The event couldn’t have come at a better time, given the current political climate in the United States, and the travel ban imposed by President Donald Trump last month. But the Professor says La Trobe is committed to welcoming scholars from around the world.“This is actually part of a 1,000-year-old university tradition, it’s just that LaTrobe has taken that ancient tradition and applied it to the northern suburbs and the regional communities we serve around Victoria. “The travel ban was such a profound attack on that sort of internationalism that universities have represented for so long. So it’s a really important tradition to maintain and to foster,” Professor Dewar said.So far the university has had a positive response to the event, with all funds going towards covering costs and supporting the work of the social enterprises involved.“La Trobe also has a well-deserved reputation for being at the epicentre of Melbourne’s vibrant social, cultural and political life. The Lawn Lunch will demonstrate why,” said Professor Dewar.The La Trobe Lawn Lunch will take place on Sunday 5 March, 2017 from 12 noon–5.00 pm at the Academic Lawn, La Trobe University, Bundoora, VIC. Entry is $20 general admission and $10 concession. For tickets, visit 50years.latrobe/lawn-lunch/ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Capital One will share how to become a destination employer during the closing keynote session at Employee Benefits Live 2015 on 22 September.The session, entitled ‘How to become a destination employer’, will focus on how employers can connect their employees with the key goals of the business.This final keynote will also include tips on how employers can create an environment where staff can be the best version of themselves, as well as attract new workers.Karen Bowes, vice president HR, international at Capital One, will lead the session.She says: “Employers need to understand the power of purpose in an organisation and helping staff own the purpose of the organisation. If workers understand what they’re working for there is a value drive and it’s much more motivating.”She also believes that giving employees a choice as to how they spend their time in the workplace can increase motivation and engagement. She suggests that the provision of comfortable areas to relax in, family-friendly benefits or gyms could help boost employee wellbeing and productivity.In order to be a standout organisation, Bowes believes that employers must revamp their benefits offering. She says: “We need to debunk the myth that money is the primary feed of employee motivation.”This is why Capital One brings its staff together to remind them of the important role they play in the overall objectives of the business. It also utilises posters and digital displays to highlight the aims of the organisation and how staff can work towards these.The organisation also employs more traditional methods of communication, such as email campaigns, but uses them in a quirky way to ensure that they are memorable and engaging for staff. For instance, its chief executive officer writes weekly blogs to update the workforce of changes and developments within the business.Bowes adds: “It’s the small things that really matter. Something like a hand-written note sticks in someone’s mind and costs very little.”Employee Benefits Live 2015 will take place at Olympia National, London, on 21-22 September.View the full conference programme and register to attend

The CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) and HPI Forecast for July 2018 shows a 6.2 percent year over year from July 2017 to July 2018, as well as a 0.3 percent in July 2018 month over month.“With increased interest rates and home prices, the CoreLogic Home Price Index is rising at a slower rate than it was earlier this year,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “While markets in the western part of the country continue to experience rapid home-price growth, many of those metros are overvalued, and will likely experience a slowdown soon.”CoreLogic predicts the national home-price index to continue to increase by 5.1 percent year over year in July 2019, but expects the index to decrease by 0.2 percent month over month in August 2018.The CoreLogic Market Condition Indicators found that 40 percent of metropolitan areas had an overvalued market in July, meaning home values were 10 percent below the sustainable level. According to the Indicators, while 40 percent were at value. 20 percent of the top 100 metropolitan areas were undervalued.Additionally, 50 percent of the top 50 markets are considered overvalued.

In other words, sellers are largely staying put. With fewer homes on the market, price pressure will continue to rise.”Find the full story here. Share
