Image source: Getty Images. The Eurasia Mining (LSE: EUA) share price has rocketed by 1,393% in a year. Stock in the mineral exploration company started to move in October 2019. That was after management explained it was looking at selling its mining assets. Discussions with various parties continued throughout 2019 and into 2020. However, Eurasia’s management never formally put the company up for sale.In February 2020, Eurasia Mining shares were suspended from trading on AIM. This followed social media speculation regarding a relationship with CITIC group, a state-owned investment company of the People’s Republic of China. Eurasia Mining later confirmed that the relationship was with the merchant banking arm of CITIC. This implied that the relationship was not like that between an interested buyer and seller.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…On 1 July 2020, Eurasia announced it was formally putting its assets up for sale and appointed UBS as a broker. Later that same month, the suspension was lifted, and the Eurasia Mining share price continued its climb. Last week Eurasia stock hit a new 52-week high of 44.75 pence. Investors in the company are almost certainly anticipating a buyer coming along and making them an offer they cannot refuse for their shares and the assets they control.The value is in the groundEurasia has one operating platinum and gold mine at West Kytlim in Russia’s Ural mountains. There is also the Semenovsky tailings project, which is also in Russia. Here the company owns three million tonnes of sand containing around 1.2 grams per ton of gold and 20 grams per ton of silver. Eurasia claims it can recover 40% of the gold with a simple cyanide leach process.Finally, and perhaps the jewel in the crown is the Monchetundra project, located on the Kola Peninsula, Russia, which has mainly palladium, but also platinum and gold, and some copper and nickel. In October 2020, the value of the metal in the ground there was valued at $2bn.The West Kytlim project will need significant investment to increase production. The other two projects are non-operational, and as such, will require a lot of capital and time to get them going.Eurasia Mining share price a buy?At present, the Eurasia Mining share price is around 40p. Assuming a buyer comes in, shareholders will expect the total offer to at least match that. However, bids normally come with a premium attached. A shareholder that has bought in recently will certainly be hoping for a premium to make a profit.If a takeover does happen, can investors expect a premium offer on the current share price? Well, if the Eurasia Mining’s assets are worth more than its current total market capitalisation of around £1.12bn, then there is a good case for expecting one, should a firm offer actually come in.Buying Eurasia Mining shares today requires a belief that its assets are worth more than the company is valued at. But bear in mind the value of the metal Eurasia Mining owns will fluctuate with market prices. These values also do not reflect the investment, costs, and time required to extract and sell the metal.Eurasia Mining is not a long-term buy for me. Either the takeover happens, or it does not. If it’s the former then a short-term gain could be made. If it’s the latter, the share price is likely to fall.Correction (December 9th 2020): This article was amended to alter the date of the for sale process announcement from July 1, 2019, to July 1, 2020.

It has dragged the sport and its reputation into the gutter.”Rebuilding the trust that has been lost by recent events is seen as an important objective, with transparency key to that. Lord Myners recommends announcing that a charge has been brought within seven days and publishing decisions in full.You can read the full report via this link.MORE ON THE SARACENS SCANDAL Can’t get to the shops?

Former Saracens DoR Mark Evans on the flawed… Lord Myners also raised concerns about the marquee player system, which allows two players to sit outside the salary cap. From the 2012-13 season, clubs could have one marquee player, with a second permitted from 2015-16. He says the marquee exemptions have “completely cut across the objectives of equality and competition, and create unhelpful inflationary pressure on wages”.His report points out that in 2013-14 there were only five players in the Premiership who cost their club at least £300,000 while this season there are 99 players. That’s a huge increase in a few years and he proposes a review of the marquee player rule.However, changing the level of the cap or the marquee players rule were not part of his recommendations so these will remain in place unless the clubs decide to review those areas. Expand Saracens relegated from Premiership – and docked further 70 points LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Premiership Rugby salary cap changes agreedPremiership Rugby clubs have agreed to make changes to the salary cap regulations following a recent report.Lord Myners, a former government minister, was commissioned by Premiership Rugby to conduct an in-depth review into the salary cap late last year following the revelations surrounding Saracens’ breaches.In total his report made 52 recommendations to improve the salary cap and the Premiership Rugby Board has unanimously agreed to support those proposed changes.Premiership Rugby chief executive Darren Childs said: “It’s a credit to our clubs that they have acted so quickly to support these recommendations and take the Premiership Rugby salary cap into a new era. We want to create the gold standard for delivering sporting integrity, financial viability and competitive balance.“The next stage is for us to consult with our clubs, RFU and RPA and to enshrine these new regulations for the start of the 2020-21 season, which will be created for the long-term benefit of our sport.”Lord Myners’s recommendations include greater sanctions for salary cap breaches, including the stripping of titles, and making players, agents and club boards more accountable so there is greater onus on individuals to ensure regulations are not being broken by specific deals.Sign of times: Gloucester supporters react to the Saracens scandal (Getty Images)Plus, Lord Myners believes the salary cap manager – or salary cap director, which is a proposed title change – should have more power to investigate clubs as well as more resources at their disposal. This includes having access to players’ tax returns and club’s “raw accounting data”.Making the regulations easier to understand is another recommendation, while greater transparency is also strong theme.Lord Myners’ review involved gathering feedback from 450 individuals and organisations, with damning verdicts delivered by some Premiership club supporters. One said: “From the whole Saracens affair, the most frustrating part was a lack of transparency. No one within rugby has come out of this looking good.” Mark Evans: “The salary cap hasn’t worked well.

Haus Oberberg is the transformation of a traditional wine cellar used for agricultural purposes in the fruit and wine-growing area into contemporary architecture. The historical wooden building with a gabled roof stands on a site which is dedicated as open land. According to regional planning regulations it is possible to extend the floor space to twice that of the original.Save this picture!© Wolfgang SilveriThe old building is to be preserved and transformed into the ideal arrangement of a Paarhof with separate residential and farm buildings. For this purpose a self-contained structure will be built opposite the wine cellar on the west side. The arrangement thus created will comprise two two-storey buildings with parallel roof ridges which are related with regard to form and materials. Both buildings become one functional unit via a cubic glass living room situated between them. This connecting element also serves as the main entrance to the building. Save this picture!© Wolfgang SilveriThe traditional basement floor of the old building does not exist in the new building. In this way, the view from the old vine arbour on the west side of the existing building of the hilly countryside is preserved. The west side of the new building opens up in a wedge-like shape as the length of the roofs has been shortened and the wooden façade is broken up by the generous glass surfaces. In this way the new building is aligned with its older relative and simultaneously opens up towards the landscape.Save this picture!ElevationProject gallerySee allShow lessInnovative, Bioclimatic, European School Complex Second Prize Winning Proposal / Var…ArticlesNew Culture Centre and Library Winning Proposal / schmidt hammer lassen architectsArticles Share CopyAbout this officeHoG ArchitekturOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodOberbergHousesAustriaPublished on January 29, 2013Cite: “Haus am Steinberg / HoG Architektur” 29 Jan 2013.

When Hurricane Dorian stalled over Grand Bahamas and the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas for nearly 40 hours on Sept. 1-2, with sustained wind speeds of 185 miles an hour, it left piles of houses and buildings reduced to kindling and rubble, along with an untold number of deaths. Dorian left no grocery stores, no gas stations, no electricity, no water, no food, no sanitation, no telephone or internet service for thousands of people. After a week, only very limited services have been restored. Rescue workers had not reached some of the more remote communities on the Abacos Islands as of Sunday, Sept. 8.The extreme character of Dorian indicates that the crisis of climate change has made hurricanes hotter, wetter and slower — wreaking even more destruction. Small countries like the Bahamas, even if they are able to get their carbon footprint to negative, have little influence over the world’s climate.Small countries are unable to change the conditions that the capitalist system has created worldwide. They certainly have the right to demand refuge from the storm’s destruction and aid from the big capitalist powers that are devastating the global environment. This is an issue for the progressive movement here in the U.S. to vigorously take up.This aerial image shows the flattened homes and rubble of a region in Abaco, Bahamas, that was home to many Haitian migrants.Haitian migrants hit hardWhile all the communities in Marsh Harbour, a large town in the Abacos Islands, suffered substantial damage, the Marsh Harbour community called “The Mudd,” where many Haitian immigrants lived, many without documents, was completely demolished. Not a single house was left standing. Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, speaking through a Creole interpreter, tried to reassure Haitians waiting for a boat to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, that the government would treat them fairly. This was a hard sell, as in 2018 the Bahamian Royal Defense Forces helped deport 1,172 Haitians. The Family Action Network Movement of Miami, together with a number of Haitian community organizations, wrote an open letter to PM Minnis, asking for “a moratorium on all deportations and refrain from asking for work permits when immigrant families seek assistance.” Help from Cuba, ChinaA number of countries are in the process of sending aid to the Bahamas. According to Telesur English, Cuba immediately sent 60 doctors and teachers to help. They will stay as long as is needed. Socialist Cuba has much experience in minimizing the danger to its people from intense storms. It is recognized internationally for its ability to relocate people away from the coast when a hurricane approaches. Every family is paired with another further inland, who shelter them until it is safe to return home.China is preparing to make a major infrastructure investment in the Bahamas and will help with recovery efforts. Caricom — the Caribbean Community — has had a presence in the Bahamas even before Dorian hit. Imperialist countries with colonies in the Caribbean — France, Great Britain, the Netherlands, the United States — have promised money and sent rescue teams.Although press releases from U.S. government agencies have touted their assistance during the climate catastrophe, the efforts made and the money spent are pitifully small when compared to the huge Pentagon budget for wars and interventions on behalf of U.S. imperialist profiteers.Florida and the BahamasFlorida only became part of the U.S. in 1821. While slavery existed there, enslaved people fled for their freedom to the British Bahamas, only 40 miles away. This was especially the case after 1834, when England abolished slavery. Many Bahamians later migrated to southern Florida in the 1930s and 1940s when it was developing its tourist and citrus industries.However, hundreds of Bahamians hoping to reach Florida after the hurricane were forced off ferries on Sept. 8 for lack of a visa, a previously unnecessary document. (tinyurl.com/y3zn9zyt)The Washington Post reported on Sept. 6 that 26 overloaded small boats had been seen leaving the Bahamas and heading west. Bahamian Prime Minister Minnis has made it clear that the capital city, Nassau, can’t accept all the people who now want to leave the islands of Grand Bahama and the Abacos.The official death total was 44 as of Sept. 8, but Minnis said this preliminary figure will rise — likely significantly — once heavy equipment needed to remove debris reaches the islands. A nonofficial website collecting the names of all the missing has 6,500 entries. Anecdotal press accounts mention many bodies scattered about. The full horror of this disaster is yet to be revealed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
Striking miners in Brookwood, Ala., sit in to block scabs at Warrior Met Coal Mine #7.Centreville, Ala.May 31 — In Brookwood, Ala., the 1,100 miners of United Mine Workers (UMWA) Local 2245 are entering the ninth week of a strike begun April 1 against Warrior Met Coal. The company has refused to meet the miners’ just demands, and the bosses brought in nonunion workers to replace the strikers. Business Wire describes Warrior as “the leading dedicated U.S.-based producer and exporter of high quality metallurgical (‘met’) coal for the global steel industry.” (Feb. 24)Three hundred striking workers marched to Mine #7 on May 25 to confront the strikebreakers, chanting, “We are Union! UM doesn’t break!” Black strikers on bullhorns called out by name the scabs who were crossing the picket line: “Get out from behind the truck, D__! Come back where we can see you!” Mine worker unionization in Central Alabama has a tradition of Black and white worker organizing that goes back 100 years, in defiance of state segregationist law and policy.A group of miners sat down in the road to block the entrance; eleven were eventually arrested. One miner said, “We don’t feel like we’re breaking the law, when this company is trying to destroy our people.” (perfectunion.us)When those arrested were released later in the day, they joined a union rally in progress, where speakers included Cecil Roberts, UMWA international president, and Liz Schuler, secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO. In 2016 the miners accepted a drastic $6-an-hour pay cut and sacrificed health benefits to bring the company out of bankruptcy. Management promised the cuts would be restored once the business was solvent.In a 2020 end-of-year statement Warrior CEO Walt Scheller said: “Despite the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on met coal demand and pricing worldwide, we were pleased to be cash flow positive again in the fourth quarter and nearly break even for the year.”But when the miners demanded restoration of their pay and benefits, the company offered a contract with only a $1.50-an-hour increase and kept in place brutal discipline and firing policies. The company contract offered nothing to improve unsafe working conditions. After walking out, the miners voted 1,006 to 45 to reject the company offer.The miners labor in one of the world’s most life-threatening workplaces. The Brookwood mines are 1,400 to 2,100 feet underground — some of the deepest vertical-shaft coal mines in North America. In 2001, methane gas explosions and a cave-in at one of the mines killed 13 workers, including a former high school classmate of this writer.Coal is extracted in the Warrior Met mines with highly mechanized “longwall” machines. Dire physical risk is omnipresent, including methane gas explosions, strata failure that shears limbs, dust that permanently damages lungs, longwall mechanisms causing head and neck injuries, and deafening machine noise.The company’s hard line, which is keeping experienced miners out of work, is also having a damaging impact on the surrounding environment, as inexperienced picket-line crossers are expected to run complicated machinery. Nelson Brooke with Black Warrior Riverkeepers says a polluted wastewater discharge smelling of chemicals is now flowing into local creeks from Warrior Met. These are creeks where children of the workers swim in the summer. Brooke says the Alabama Department of Environmental Management should immediately shut down Mine #7 and issue a cease-and-desist order to the company. (abc3340.com, May 3)Weekly solidarity rallies are being held at Tannehill State Park. Community support, including fundraisers and a food pantry, is helping the striking miners and their families keep going.

TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ Review: predictions on who will win the Oscar vs. who should William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ Photo Credit: Francois Duhamel /DreamWorks Pictures Review: ‘Black Panther’ delivered even with high expectations William Konig Twitter Facebook Review: ‘Ready Player One’ is a ton of fun print“Thank You for Your Service” offers a great message and powerful story to the audience even with some technical flaws.Based off a true story, Miles Teller plays a real life solider named Adam Schumann who comes back home after fighting in the Iraq war. Schumann tries to adjust to the changes of going from a war to living at home with his wife and child. When Schumann and his squad get back from the war, they all go through the challenges of emotional trauma and the struggle of getting help.Miles Teller does a great job of portraying the pain and suffering that Schumann goes through when he returns from duty. Teller does a good job building up the stress that he was feeling after getting back and almost getting to his absolute breaking point.The rest of the cast were all ok in their roles. Beulah Koale who played Solo also had a heartbreaking role. He plays a solider who comes home and his emotional trauma causes him to become violent and aggressive. His wife has to deal with the consequences and decide whether she can stay with him or not.Amy Schumer was the only actress that stood out as someone who did not belong in the movie. She played the wife of a fallen soldier and felt out of her comfort zone by taking on this part. It felt like they wanted someone with a big name rather than someone who could really play that part.The film has some very heartbreaking and touching moments throughout the film. Watching Schumann’s wife struggle to get him to open up about his emotions was difficult to watch sometimes, as it felt very real.Verdict:Overall, this film has a very touching message behind it that would benefit those who don’t know what it is like dealing with the struggles after coming back from war. Amy Schumer and the acting of everyone else in the film feels a little lacking and could be better. But, the acting from Miles Teller is what makes this film special and believable. This movie will not blow you away, but is well worth the watch because if offers a powerful message.7/10 The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years + posts ReddIt ReddIt Review: ‘Love, Simon’ is actually a cute romantic comedy Twitter Facebook William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ Linkedin William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/ World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin Previous articleTCU ‘can’t wait’ for top-25 football matchup at Iowa StateNext articleSociology professor retiring after 37 years at TCU William Konig RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR read more
