Mouchel shares jump after it reveals advanced talks with mystery bidder

first_img SHARES in professional services firm Mouchel leapt yesterday after the firm said it was in advanced takeover talks with an unknown bidder.The embattled company had been the subject of several approaches from Costain, yet the engineer yesterday said it was not a suitor for the firm.Rivals linked with Mouchel include the outsourced service providers Carillion, Interserve and Balfour Beatty.The prospect of an imminent takeover deal could calm Mouchel’s angry shareholders, who had called on the board to sell out.Major shareholders approached chairman Bo Lerenius last month calling for a sale, after the firm had refused to accept repeated offers from Costain.The engineer said yesterday it had improved its offer for Mouchel as recently as last week, without revealing the details of the fresh approach.Analysts said the new suitor’s offer would have to beat Costain’s sweetened 153p per share bid made last month in order to meet Mouchel’s pledge to maximise shareholder value.Analyst at Arden Partners Geoff Allum said: “Given that the price [Costain] offered was a pretty reasonable one, any such improved offer might’ve meant more cash.“It does at least say we’re in the end game. Shareholders of course will be pleased.”He added: “It gives some justification to management for holding out as long as they have. It’ll be good for them, especially if they can get a higher price and a better offer than from Contain.”Mouchel shares closed up 12 per cent at 152.5p per share, valuing the firm at £171.4m. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodaySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald More From Our Partners Mark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Share Thursday 24 February 2011 8:40 pm Tags: NULLcenter_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Mouchel shares jump after it reveals advanced talks with mystery bidder whatsapplast_img read more

This is a small house for two historians and their children, overlooking lake Mjøsa at an abandoned farm which they have inherited. The existing old house in the yard is not insulated and used for guests and storage. The existing barn has to be torn down because the main load bearing construction is rotten. However, the cladding of the barn, more than 100 years old, is still of good quality and now used for exterior cladding and terraces of the new house. Some of the old planks are cut with a varied with at the root of the tree compared to the top. These diagonals are used to adjust the horizontality of the cladding towards the sloping lines of the ground and the angle of the roof. The spatial complexity, exposed construction, and material simplicity of the barn has also inspired and informed the new architecture in a wider sense.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsLouvers / ShuttersRabel Aluminium SystemsElectric Folding Shading System – Rabel 14000WoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsFrom the main entrance to the south, the interior organization has a dual focus, both opening the whole facade towards the lake to the north, and at the same time stepping the central space downwards to the terrace at the west side of the house.

Above, there is a children’s loft, below the parent’s part of the house. The main section rises towards the south to allow for the low winter sun to enter the building. The glazed and lofty winter garden works as a heat collector at winter time, and heat buffer for the rest of the house at summer time.The area is about 150 m2, main construction and surfaces made of wood, windows lined with aluminum, ground floor in exposed concrete. There is 40 cm of rock wool insulation in the roof construction, 20 cm in the walls.

Myeloma UK bike ride raises £300,000

first_img The Myeloma UK inaugural London to Paris bike ride has raised more than £300,000 for the charity.Just 125 people raised the sum: a mixture of myeloma patients and their family and friends, doctors and nurses, and the pharmaceutical industry. Riders cycled 500km over four days from 5th – 8th May, supported by event ambassador, round the world cyclist and adventurer, Mark Beaumont.The idea came from myeloma patient Bob Munro, from Windsor. Bob and 45 of his family and friends took part in the ride raising a collective total of almost £100,000. All the money raised will go towards supporting research into myeloma, which currently affects 17,500 people in the UK and has no cure.The ride was sponsored by A.G. Barr, Gobstoppers, Hyundai, Tunnock’s, Barr Printers and Hype Branding, and supported by pharmaceutical and diagnostic partners Abingdon Health, Amgen, Celgene and Takeda.Bob Munro said:“This event is a challenge, and it makes you feel like you’ve done something amazing to earn your fundraising money. All of the riders and the people who sponsored them worked as a team to support Myeloma UK, and all of the money we’ve raised will go towards saving patients’ lives.”  111 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 25 May 2016 | News  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Myeloma UK bike ride raises £300,000 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

72 waiting on trolleys at UHL

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous article#Watch Limerick #IBelieveHer rallyNext articleFringe festival theatre: In Search of Spring Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival 72 patients are waiting on trolleys at UHL this Thursday72 people are waiting on trolleys at the University Hospital Limerick this Thursday, the highest recorded figure of the 32 hospitals surveyed by the Irish Nurse and Mid Wife Organisation.The INMO figures revealed that 52 people were on trolleys while a further 20 were located in wards.According to the frontline medical representatives organisation, Thursday’s figures add to the record breaking figures for the numbers waiting on trolleys at hospitals around the country.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In all, 10,511 patients were waiting for an in-patient bed during March with 3,112 waiting in just one week and 714 patients on trolleys awaiting admission on one day. 191 children also waited on trolleys during the record breaking month.As part of its drive at national level to address hospital and ED overcrowding, the INMO has sought specifically that the HSE Acute Hospital Division intervenes in hospitals where the trolley numbers are simply out of control, and where local management is not adhering to the ED Agreement of 2016.This requires site visits which the INMO has requested.Where implemented correctly, the ED Agreement brokered between the INMO and the HSE in January 2016 has made remarkable improvements and better use of extra beds, both in community and acute hospitals.As 72 patients waited for a in-patient bed in Limerick, INMO Industrial Relations Officer, Mary Fogarty said that “there is an urgent need for additional nursing staff and more beds.  Patient safety and clinical care is compromised due to the inability of the hospital to retain and recruit nurses with 60 nursing vacancies currently confirmed. There is no extra funding for further additional nursing resources to look after the 72 patients today.”Ms Fogarty went on to say that “The situation is further compounded by the shortage of nursing staff to look after patients and the conditions for those who are ill and the frail elderly are inexcusable,” when speaking of figures in Tipperary.Fianna Fáil TD for Limerick, Niall Collins said: “Nearly two years on from Minister Harris’ appointment as Minister for Health, we continue to see increases in the number of people lying on trolleys waiting to be admitted to a hospital ward.“At UHL, a 46 per cent increase between the March 2017 and March 2018 figures, and we have yet to see a coherent plan from the Minister to stem and reduce the numbers of vulnerable people, many of them who are pensioners, lying on trolleys in hospital corridors or in the Emergency Department.“The plans that Minister Harris has tried to implement have failed. It’s no longer a winter crisis. It’s a 24/7, 365 day of the year crisis, and the victims are vulnerable sick people who just want to be treated in their local hospital.“More doctors and nurses, more hospital beds in the short term rather than in 10 years’ time, and more supports for older people as they leave hospital can increase the capacity of our health system to treat the growing numbers of citizens requiring hospital-level care,” concluded Collins.INMO General Secretary, Phil Ni Sheaghdha said that “a figure of 495 was considered a national emergency in 2006. We expect that next week’s figures will be high as our hospitals and staff continue to be overburdened particularly following the bank holiday  weekend.“During the month of March the INMO called for extraordinary measures to be put in place to focus on recovering from the adverse weather event, ensuring prioritisation of emergency care requiring all non-urgent and routine cases to be cancelled during that period. We are now calling for these measures to be implemented again. In this crisis all measures to properly resource and staff the health service must be explored and the assistance of services in the private acute hospitals must also be sought.“The INMO has sought confirmation that all hospitals are adhering to the nationally agreed escalation policy and remind all employers of the health and safety obligations of the employer in situations where workplaces are overcrowded and pose risks to staff. It is simply not possible for the hospitals, or staff, to continue to provide safe care under these conditions.”See more Limerick news here TAGSHSEINMO.

Armyworm invasion

first_img Email the author The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Sponsored Content Armyworms have invaded the Wiregrass Substation in Headland and that’s cause for concern among area producers who have hayfields.William Birdsong, extension specialist – agronomic crops, said armyworms have been discovered in a hay field at the research center but, at this time, no other army worms have been reported but that doesn’t mean they’re not there.“We are trying to get the word out for producers to check their hayfields,” Birdsong said. “If unchecked and unnoticed, armyworms can devour the forage in a matter of just a few days. Armyworms seem to prefer Bermuda grass hayfields. The moths invade the fields and lay eggs. When the eggs reach the larvae stage, they start to grow and eat and cycle out.” “When armyworms are found early, insecticides can be applied that will kill and control armyworms and prevent forage loss,” Birdsong said.“So, it’s important to scout the field and find the armyworms before they do major damage. They work fast, so fast that you can actually see a slow wave of forage being consumed.”Typically, mid- to late-summer conditions are such that there is the potential for armyworm outbreaks.“That’s what we want to prevent,” Birdsong said. “Just because we’ve discovered armyworms at the research center in Headland doesn’t mean that the infestation is widespread. But it does mean that producers need to be aware of the potential and scout their hayfields. Not doing so could mean devastation of the hayfields.” By The Penny Hoarder Armyworm invasion “The number of armyworms is huge – thousands upon thousands – and they can consume an entire hayfied in a few days. That’s why it’s so important for producers to scout their hayfields.”Farmers don’t normally have reason to scout a hayfield during this busy time of year.“A producer who cut a hayfield a week or so ago, probably wouldn’t go back to the field until he was ready to cut it again,” Birdsong said. “There would be no reason for him to. But in that length of time, his hayfield could be infested or gone.”The producer would have lost a cutting of hay and that’s not what any producer wants.

Chaff from military plane likely caused mysterious blip in weather radar: Reports

first_imgrichardcalver/iStock(NEW YORK) — Meteorologists may have discovered what caused a mysterious blip in the weather radar in Illinois and Kentucky earlier this week.On Monday afternoon, large blips that would usually indicate stormy weather flashed across the radar maps showing southern Illinois and western Kentucky, but there was neither a storm system nor a raindrop in sight, according to the National Weather Service, which described the radar at the time as “interesting.” The NWS later determined that “the leading theory” for the cause of the blip was chaff from an aircraft, which is a stream or cloud of radar-jamming material such as thin aluminum that is often used as a countermeasure during combat. Wayne Hart, meteorologist for ABC Evansville, Indiana, affiliate WEHT-TV, tweeted that the chaff came from a military C-130 northwest of Evansville, citing an unnamed pilot who was given the information from the Evansville air traffic control. The two military bases nearest to where the blip occurred denied that the C-130 came from their premises. Major Martin Meiners, public affairs officer for the 101st Airborne Division for Fort Campbell in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, told ABC News that there are no units at that base that fly C-130s. A spokesman for Scott Air Force Base in St. Clair County told the Evansville Courier & Press that the plane did not come from that base, either.A representative for the Air Force did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
