first_imgThe South African company says this, coupled with the decreasing supply from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), will put “significant pressure” on the supply dynamics of helium for the foreseeable future.“The global macro-economic picture is changing and has seen [the] helium market remain in tight supply. With a prolonged depressed oil price further exacerbating this position, [this] will most likely have an impact on future large scale LNG and helium projects from a financing perspective by delaying the much needed critical investment decisions,” Renergen explained.“Demand at this stage is not expected to fall in line with the reduced supply shortages. In the medium term we believe many nations will respond to the current pandemic by increasing preparedness against future pandemics with additional medical facilities.”“It stands to reason that this could result in increased oncology wards and more MRIs, which would place further demand on the helium.”For the South African economy, Renergen said the full impact of coronavirus has yet to be determined, and what this in turn means for the pricing structure for LNG domestically moving forward.“Given, however, that South Africa is a net importer of crude oil and liquid fuels, the impact from lower oil prices have been offset by a weakening currency,” Renergen said.“Supply chains will most likely be impacted and the extent of the problem could worsen should countries and organisations not plan effectively to deal with this unprecedented crisis.”last_img read more

first_imgMedia and entertainment – Anonymity – Freedom of expression – Reporting restrictions The applicant media organisations applied to set aside anonymity orders made by the administrative court in favour of the appellants (X, K, M and G) and one respondent (H). H and the appellants were alleged to have links with al-Qaida and were suspected of facilitating acts of terrorism. As a result, they were designated under article 4 of the Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 and their assets were frozen. They brought proceedings challenging the freezing orders. G and H’s designation had been publicised by the Treasury and both were named in the press. In addition, H had brought earlier proceedings against the Home Office for wrongful imprisonment, in which he was named and his full circumstances described. He had also been named by the press in various articles since 1999. The anonymity order in relation to G was lifted before the instant hearing. X and K had given no instructions to their counsel in relation to the instant hearing and had left their home address. However, if they were named it would have the effect of identifying their brother (M). M submitted that publication of his name would breach his rights under article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 and cause serious damage to his reputation in circumstances where he was not charged with any offence and was unable to challenge the allegations made against him. He also argued that if he were identified it would lead to a loss of contact with the local Muslim community and adversely affect his family. The media organisations argued that the anonymity orders breached their rights under article 10. They relied on a decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), Karako v Hungary (39311/05), unreported, 28 April 2009 ECHR, and maintained that M’s reputation did not fall within the scope of article 8. Held: (1) In Karako the ECtHR had accepted that some attacks on a person’s reputation could be of such a seriously offensive nature as to have a direct effect on the victim’s private life. However, the court’s conclusion that Karako’s article 8 rights had not been infringed did not mean that the court had proceeded on the basis that Karako’s claim did not fall within the scope of article 8, Karako explained. In Karako no specific effects on the victim’s private life were mentioned by the court. However, in the instant case, M had explained how he anticipated that his private life would be affected if his identity were revealed. Accordingly, both article 8 and article 10 were applicable and the court had to weigh the competing claims of M and his family under article 8, and of the press under article 10. The question for the court was whether there was sufficient general public interest in publishing a report of the proceedings which identified M to justify any resulting curtailment of his right, and his family’s right, to respect for their private and family life, Von Hannover v Germany (59320/00) [2004] EMLR 21 ECHR considered, and Campbell v Mirror Group Newspapers Ltd [2004] UKHL 22, [2004] 2 AC 457 applied. (2) In the circumstances, there was a powerful general public interest in identifying M which justified curtailment of his article 8 rights. M’s argument really amounted to saying that the press should be prevented from printing what was true for fear that some of those reading the reports might misinterpret them and act inappropriately. Doubtless, some might indeed draw the unjustified inference that M feared. However, there was no reason to assume that most members of the public, including the local Muslim community, would be unable to draw the necessary distinction between mere suspicion and guilt, and to respond appropriately to any revelation that the Treasury suspected that M might have facilitated terrorism. Furthermore, a report of the proceedings challenging the freezing orders which did not reveal the identities of the appellants would be disembodied. Readers would be less interested and editors would then tend to give the report a lower priority. In that way, informed debate about freezing orders would suffer. If newspapers could identify the people concerned, they could give a more vivid and compelling account which would stimulate discussion about the use of freezing orders. A more open attitude would be consistent with the correct view that freezing orders were merely indicative of suspicion rather than guilt. By concealing identities the courts were actually helping to foster an impression that the mere making of an order justified sinister conclusions about those individuals. That was particularly unfortunate when they were unlikely to have any opportunity to challenge the alleged factual basis for the orders. (3) The evidence of the potential effect on M’s private and family life was very general and, for that reason, not particularly compelling. The apparent lack of reaction to the naming of G was also relevant, since it suggested that the impact of identification on an individual’s relationships with the local community was not likely to be as dramatic as the judge had anticipated when making the order. The anonymity order in relation to X, K and M was therefore set aside. (4) There had never been any justification for the order in favour of H, especially given that he had already been named in a press release several years ago, and had been named in proceedings in public and in numerous other press articles. H’s order was therefore also set aside. Application granted.

first_img WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is suggesting the U.S. change its tax laws to punish organizations like the NFL if members are “disrespecting” the national anthem or flag.The NFL gave up its federal tax-exempt status a few years ago and now files tax returns as a taxable entity. So it’s unlikely that Trump’s proposal, tweeted in the early hours Tuesday, would change anything.Trump tweeted: “Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Published: October 10, 2017 12:08 PM EDT Trump says US should change tax law to punish NFL Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Author: Associated Press Trump also tweeted Tuesday that ESPN ratings have “tanked” because of Jemele Hill, the anchor suspended for making political statements on social media.With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have “tanked,” in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2017While NFL viewership is down slightly, ESPN remains among the most popular cable networks, averaging 3 million viewers in prime time. The network has suffered subscriber losses over the last few years as some viewers have moved to streaming services from cable television.Hill, an African-American co-host of the 6 p.m. broadcast of “SportsCenter,” received backlash last month after calling Trump a “white supremacist” in a series of tweets that referenced the president’s comments about a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.That comment prompted Trump to demand an apology from ESPN and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to call for Hill’s firing.While ESPN took no formal action against Hill over the Trump comment, she did apologize to the network for the trouble her remarks had caused while standing by the tweets. ESPN cited that apology in announcing Hill’s suspension Monday , saying in a statement that ESPN employees had been “reminded of how individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such actions would have consequences.”Hill targeted Jerry Jones on Twitter on Sunday after the Dallas Cowboys owner stated that players who disrespect the flag would not play for his team. She suggested fans who disagree with Jones should boycott the team’s advertisers and not buy the team’s merchandise.She clarified Monday that she wasn’t calling for an NFL boycott.

first_imgINTRO: Under a €1·35bn project to improve capacity on the Brenner axis by 2010, work has begun on a 40 km second route along the Lower Inn valley in AustriaBYLINE: Martin PellizzariBrenner Eisenbahn GmbHSPEEDING the flow of international traffic across the Alps is one of the greatest challenges facing European infrastructure policy. Recent decades have produced a high-quality road network, and the priority is now to integrate road and rail transport to handle the increasing traffic in a sustainable way.As the lowest pass across the Alps, the Brenner route has an important role in these plans, and in the 1980s experts were asked to consider how the rail link between München and Verona could be improved. The first study for a Brenner base tunnel showed clearly that the bottleneck on the rail corridor was not at the pass itself, but lay further north, between Innsbruck and the important junction at Wlast_img read more
