Australia dilutes its mining tax

first_img Australia dilutes its mining tax Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp Thursday 24 March 2011 8:54 pm Tags: NULL Share AUSTRALIA’S booming mining companies including BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto have won a major concession over a plan to tax their profits, potentially saving them hundreds of millions of dollars and helping cool industry opposition to the tax. Australian treasurer Wayne Swan said yesterday the national government would repay current royalties that the miners pay to state governments, and refund any future royalty increases imposed by mining states. The controversial 30 per cent tax on iron ore and coal mines with annual profits of $50m (£30.9m) or more is due to start in the middle of next year, and should raise $7.4bn in its first two years. Smaller mining companies, however, led by Fortescue Metals Group, remain strongly opposed to the tax, and continued to criticise the deal with the global companies despite the latest compromise. “It was a tax designed by BHP,” Fortescue’s billionaire chief Andrew Forrest said.“Policy should be broad ranging, it should be fair and it should be based on the constitution of being equal among states and equal among companies. That hasn’t happened here. BHP has literally written a tax for everyone else to pay,” he said. whatsapp More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comlast_img read more

As the doughnut graph shows, 66% of mobile revenues come from sports betting.Interestingly, while by region Europe takes the bulk of global mobile revenues, Asia and the Middle East has a higher percentage of its region’s gross win coming from mobile. This is likely to be due to the fact that in some countries, particularly those in Asia, fixed-line broadband was slow to develop and many users skipped desktop altogether and adopted mobile as their first internet device.H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team. The company has a track record of nearly 15 years focused on the global gambling industry, its projections have been influential in shaping legislators’  and investors’ views of the gambling sector across the globe. 30th May 2019 | By Stephen Carter Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Emily Scarratt penalty secures dramatic win over France

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Cyrielle Banet with a try worthy of winning any match But will it be enough for France today? England will hope not…Follow #ENGvFRA live here: #RedRoses— BBC Sport (@BBCSport) November 21, 2020Banet was then sin-binned early in the second period for using her boot on Vickii Cornborough’s shoulder. The referee was originally going to red card the wing before recognising the mitigation of Cornborough holding Banet’s leg to keep her in the breakdown.From that penalty, England opted for a five-metre lineout and at the third attempt (they were awarded two further penalties for maul infringements) they drove over the line with Lark Davies touching down for the try.Still, after England couldn’t make a five-minute spell in possession count, the French defence standing firm, Middleton emptied his bench midway through the second half, with all eight replacements coming on at once.At the double: Cyrielle Banet scored two tries for France at Twickenham (Getty Images)Then Banet struck again. France got their maul rolling from a lineout on the 22, edged forward and across the pitch through a series of strong carries before Banet went over in the corner. France had a 23-10 lead going into the final 15 minutes and looked like having the mentality to close it out.Then England came back. First Poppy Cleall reduced the deficit when she touched down from a strong driving maul in the 70th minute. Then Kildunne went over, hitting a good line in the 22 and having the power (with a little help from Claudia MacDonald) to stay on her feet and burst through a huddle of French defenders to score. Emily Scarratt’s conversion made it a one-point game going into the last five minutes.When Coumba Diallo stole an England lineout five metres out from the French line it looked like the visitors would hold on for the win. But England came again, patiently worked the phases and when that final penalty was awarded – for not rolling away – Scarratt duly stepped up to slot it. Emily Scarratt penalty secures dramatic win over FranceA last-minute penalty from Emily Scarratt gave England a dramatic 25-23 victory over France at Twickenham.The French had led 23-10 going into the last 15 minutes but the Red Roses staged a remarkable comeback to ensure they finished 2020 with seven wins from seven Tests – and extend their winning run to ten Internationals going back more than a year.It is also England’s seventh straight Test win over France, their closest European rivals who they will also play at the 2021 World Cup having both been drawn in Pool C.This performance was far from the convincing displays England showed in winning the Six Nations Grand Slam or even in beating France 33-10 last weekend, but the team did show grit and determination to come back and triumph.“With the character of the side, they found a way to win,” said England coach Simon Middleton. “That game was nowhere near what we’d have liked it to be, how we wanted it to pan out. That’s international rugby, it’s not always how you want it to be. We’ll learn a lot more from that than winning easy or staying in front.”France put England under huge pressure at the set-piece in the first half, a penalty for the visitors from a scrum in the second minute a sign of things to come. The Red Roses’ error count was also extremely high, with knock-ons and loose passes preventing them from building through the phases.England did score the first try, though, Zoe Harrison going over in the 17th minute after a fortuitous bounce of the ball…center_img It was their second try, just before the half-time whistle, that was the highlight of the opening 40. France launched an attack from inside their own half from a Daley-Mclean kick, Shannon Izar receiving the ball in the middle of the field, taking it wide and then running a switch inside to Cyrielle Banet, who broke clear and went over despite the tackle of Ellie Kildunne.

Your second dose will be the same vaccine type/brand (Moderna or Pfizer) as your first dose.When do I get my second dose? What is the CDC’s guidance on the time span recommendations for the second dose?Moderna recommends the second dose at 28 days. Pfizer recommends the second dose at 21 days.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you should not be scheduled to receive the second dose earlier than recommended (i.e., 3 weeks [Pfizer-BioNTech] or 1 month [Moderna]).However, second doses administered within a grace period of 4 days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid. Doses inadvertently administered earlier than the grace period do not need to be repeated.In other words, the second dosage is needed but the timing does not have to be precise to the day of recommendation. However, the authorized time schedule should be followed within the recommended guidelines.There is no maximum interval between the first and second doses for either vaccine. Therefore, if the second dose is administered >3 weeks after the first Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine dose or >1 month after the first Moderna vaccine dose, there is no need to restart the series. Vaccine administration errors should be reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

James Horwill red carded and suspended for one week for forearm hit

first_imgWednesday Apr 8, 2015 James Horwill red carded and suspended for one week for forearm hit Earlier this week Reds lock James Horwill was banned for a week following the red card he received against the Melbourne Rebels in Round 8 of Super Rugby. You can view the full disciplinary statement, and a video of the incident, below. The SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson QC has accepted a guilty plea from James Horwill of the Reds for contravening Law 10.4 (a) Punching or striking. He has been suspended from all forms of the game for one week up to and including 11 April 2015.In his finding, SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson QC ruled the following: “I found this was a strike with a swinging arm to the back of neck of Rebels player, Paul Alo-Emile. The explanation that the arm was used to gain momentum at the breakdown was not tenable. There was no attempt to engage.“The strike was of no effect with no injury to the Rebels player. This was in summary, an ineffectual strike other than its impact on the game as Horwill was red carded in the 21st minute of the match.“A submission that this was relevant to setting a lower entry point for sanction was rejected. There is an adverse effect on the game as a whole following a red card.  “Horwill has attracted media attention in the disciplinary context but his actual transgressions are few despite over 100 Super Rugby games and 59 Test matches for Australia.“He had one off field yellow card (now Citing Commissioner Warning) in 2013 and came before the SANZAR Judiciary in 2015 for two yellow cards in the same match for technical breaches.“Nothing was added for aggravating factors and in mitigation, he is entitled to some allowance for his acceptance of the indicated sanction and his recognition that this was clearly unacceptable for which he apologised to the Rebels player and also during the hearing.“In the circumstances, the two-week entry point is reduced to one week and Horwill is suspended up to and including Saturday 11 April 2015.”The incident is included below in this report from the weekendADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Community structure and grazing impact of mesozooplankton during late spring/early summer 2004/2005 in the vicinity of the Crozet Islands (Southern Ocean)

first_imgNet sampling within the vicinity of the Crozet archipelago, in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean, was conducted during late spring/summer (November 2004-January 2005) to describe the composition, distribution and grazing impact of mesozooplankton, and to investigate their relationships with the prevailing oceanographic regime in the area. The mesozooplankton community was intimately linked with the large-scale physical circulation in the region. To the west and north of the Islands, the sub-Antarctic Front (SAF) presented a strong biogeographic boundary between subtropical and sub-Antarctic species. South and east of the SAF, the mesozooplankton community was dominated by Polar Frontal Zone (PFZ) copepod species. Cluster analysis of mesozooplankton abundance data identified two main communities in the PFZ, termed here Island and Oceanic. Island stations, representing the proposed iron-fertilised productive region north of the archipelago, contained an abundance (mean of 2269 ind m(-3)) of the neritic copepod Drepanopus pectinatus, whose presence indicated that the water had interacted with the Crozet Island shelf at some point. D. pectinatus was present in samples north of Crozet up to the SAF, confirming that water passing the Crozet Islands could be transported, throughout the region to the north. The Oceanic stations, south of the Islands and within the SAF, contained similar mesozooplankton abundances and biovolume to the Island stations suggesting little enhanced impact of the iron-fertilised phytoplankton bloom through the mesozooplankton food web. Copepod community grazing pressure, in both Island and Oceanic stations, during November and December was small ( < 7% of chlorophyll-a standing stock per day, < 35% primary production per day). By January, a phytoplankton bloom had developed at some of the Island stations (up to similar to 3000 mg C m(-2) d(-1)) and grazing pressure was < 1% of chlorophyll-a standing stock per day. At the oceanic stations, primary productivity had reduced from similar to 460 to similar to 200 mg C m(-2) d(-1), typical values for high-nutrient low-chlorophyll (HNLC) waters, and the copepod community grazing pressure had increased to similar to 90% of daily primary productivity. This suggests that a combination of grazing and micronutrient availability controls phytoplankton biomass in HNLC waters to the south of Crozet, while grazing had little impact on the "iron- fertilised" bloom north of the Crozet Islands. The intense seasonal phytoplankton bloom around Crozet may therefore be exported to the sea floor rather than fuelling the higher trophic levels. (C) 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
