Visa hit by web protest

first_img Show Comments ▼ Share Wednesday 8 December 2010 9:29 pm whatsapp KCS-content SUPPORTERS of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks brought down several payment processing websites yesterday and threatened to attack other financial services. Visa’s website was suspended and Mastercard’s online services were malfunctioning yesterday after activist group Anonymous attacked the websites as revenge for the companies blocking Wikileaks transactions earlier in the week. Mastercard said yesterday: “Our core processing capabilities have not been compromised and cardholder account data has not been placed at risk. While we have seen limited interruption in some web-based services, cardholders can continue to use their cards for secure transactions globally.”Visa said its homepage was “experiencing heavier than normal traffic”.A group called Anonymous, which coordinated the attacks via Twitter with the message “FIRE FIRE FIRE”, has since seen its own website and Twitter account disabled. The group released a statement claiming it overwhelmed the financial websites’ servers with fake visits. It named Amazon, Paypal and EveryDNS as other targets for attacks, after they prevented Wikileaks from using services.Meanwhile, IT company Datacell threatened Visa and Mastercard with legal action yesterday, claiming the firms’ stance on Wikileaks was damaging its business. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is set to remain in UK police custody until a court hearing on 14 December, after he was detained on Tuesday under a Swedish arrest warrant for alleged sexual offences. The Wikileaks webpage was not functioning last night, though the 250,000 leaked diplomatic papers remained available on mirror sites.

BG Group offsets production drop with higher gas prices

first_img GAS explorer BG Group beat analyst forecasts yesterday with a 13 per cent rise in fourth-quarter earnings, with higher gas and oil prices offsetting a dip in production. Earnings for the last three months of 2010 rose 13 per cent to $1.06bn, (£659m) though pre-tax profit fell 2.7 per cent to $1.45bn on last year, including charges from disposals and impairments. Revenues rose one per cent to $4.3bn, supporting an 11 per cent rise for the year to $17.2bn. Production volumes fell slightly short of forecasts, falling two per cent in the quarter to 60.7m barrels of oil equivalent, but a 22 per cent rise in global gas prices more than made up for the drop. The firm has raised its full-year dividend by 10 per cent to 21.6 cents per share and repeated its goal to grow by six to eight per cent a year until 2020 after raising estimates for its US shale gas and Brazilian explorations. Morgan Stanley said: “Investors can focus on what is again an exceptionally positive strategy update… targets and resource numbers have not just been reiterated, but in many cases raised by some margin.”BG shares rose 2.1 per cent to 1,470p. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The Shell share price is at a 25-year low! Here’s why I’d buy today

Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price has plunged in value this year. The stock has recently fallen to levels not seen for over two-and-a-half decades. Multiple headwinds It’s easy to understand why investors have been selling Shell in 2020.5G 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…For a start, the price of oil has plunged as demand has slumped. Earlier in 2020, some analysts forecast a 10% overall decline in oil demand this year thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. The plunging oil price has wreaked havoc with Shell’s bottom line. The company has also had to write off billions of dollars of assets. Second, the whole Big Oil sector has faced selling pressure as investors have come under pressure to dump polluting companies. These businesses are some of the biggest polluters globally, and that’s not going to change any time soon. That’s what worried investors who are concerned about their carbon footprint. Third, earlier this year, Shell was forced to cut its dividend. Shell has been considered a dividend champion since the Second World War — the last time the company reduced the payout. Management’s decision to take this drastic step showed just how much impact the issues above are having on the group. The Shell share price is too lowConsidering all of the above, I think Shell’s share price is rightly worth less than it was at the beginning of the year. However, I think the market is too pessimistic about the company’s long-term prospects. For example, while the demand for oil and gas is set to fall this year, analysts expect a rebound in 2021. And they also reckon global oil and gas demand won’t peak until 2030.So, Shell has a decade to refocus the business. It’s already doing just that. Management has earmarked $2bn a year for renewable energy projects and plans to accelerate this spending in the years ahead. The group has been working to build out its energy supply business, which should bring it to new customers. It has also been investing in renewables, such as solar and wind. The company is not abandoning oil and gas entirely. It wants to get the mix right and use cash flow from legacy assets to fund new projects. I think this is the right course of action as it allows Shell to mix the best of both worlds. As such, I reckon investors have been too eager to dump Shell shares over the past year. Today the stock offers a dividend yield of 6.5%, even after the recent payout cut. What’s more, the stock is changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of less than 10. That’s compared to the company’s long-term average of around 15. While Shell might encounter further headwinds in the near term, I think the company has all the tools necessary to stage a robust recovery in the long run. In the meantime, investors will be paid to wait.  Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Image source: Getty Images There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 25th October, 2020 | More on: RDSB Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Royal Dutch Shell.

Getting to Know Nelson Engineering

first_imgHome Energy Getting to Know Nelson Engineering By Andy Eubank – Sep 3, 2013 Getting to Know Nelson Engineering SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleNational Higher Yields Tour Wraps on Crawfordsville FarmNext articleUSDA Has No Plans to Withdraw Poultry Rule Andy Eubank Do you know Nelson Engineering? The company hit my radar a few weeks ago while in Galva, Iowa during the Quad County Corn Processors ground-breaking for its new Adding Cellulosic Ethanol “ACE” project, a bolt-on technology innovation that will specialize in converting corn fiber into cellulosic ethanol. Nelson Engineering is the lead engineering firm on this project.I caught up with Rick Serie, director of business development, during the 26th Annual Ethanol Conference and learned that Nelson Engineering was founded about six years ago and they are a very diversified company. They offer the biofuel industry, and beyond, every different principle of engineering you could ever imagine. The team, explained Serie, is also very diversified and chalk full of biofuel experts.Serie has been in the ethanol industry since the mid-90s and he said that he still enjoys the industry. Why? Because ethanol so good for America and so good for agriculture. He noted that when he began in the industry a bushel of corn sold for $2 and farmers were still receiving subsidies. But today, he noted, no one talks about this because growers no longer need the subsidies.Nelson Engineering is a bit unique, explained Serie because they do more than one would think of as “traditional” engineering. For example, he believes they have one of the strongest safety programs for an ethanol (or biorefinery) facility. He said that Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is staffing up and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is staffing up and visiting ethanol plants. When they come in, he said, they give citations and fine the plant.“So what we do,” continued Serie, “is we do safety audits for plants to give them that reassurance that they’re up to compliance. And if they do have holes in their compliance, so to speak, we can help them get up to compliance.” He said it’s a very thorough audit and takes several days.Source: Joanna Schroeder at www.domesticfuel.comlast_img read more

New policy prohibits tobacco use on campus

first_img Previous articleTrivia Thursday: Class of 2021Next articleFormer TCU standout added to Rifle coaching staff Riley Knight RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Facebook Photo courtesy of Trey Fearn.“I believe that the tobacco ban is a blatant restriction of my freedom,” said Trey Fearn, a sophomore film-TV-digital media and psychology double major. “I understand that they are looking out for our health. However, as an adult, I’m going to consume tobacco whether or not the school bans it.”In terms of changing members of the TCU community’s views on the topic, Cavins-Tull said she’s not sure if the policy will be successful in changing the minds of those on campus. She does think that it’s a move in the right direction for the wellness of the campus community. Linkedin Students, faculty and staff can email [email protected] to share their ideas about the potential policy change. A guide to designing your graduation cap Twitter Riley Knighthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/riley-knight/ printTCU is now expecting voluntary compliance of a tobacco-free campus from faculty, staff and students for the 2017-2018 school year.The restrictions are part of the new Tobacco Policy that was implemented this month. According to the policy, the university does not require faculty, staff and students to quit using tobacco products; however, it does expect individuals to refrain from using any tobacco products while on university property.The boundaries of the policy include any property owned or leased by TCU and any streets or sidewalks adjoining university property.According to Kathryn Cavins-Tull, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, the topic of tobacco use on campus was raised a few years ago; however, it wasn’t until this past year a consensus was reached. Students in the Student Government Association worked with members of the Alcohol and Drug Education center, as well as the Director of Wellness, Director of Employee Wellness, Human Resources and the Associate Dean of Nursing to get the conversation started again.“We hosted two open forums and also spoke with the Faculty Senate and the Staff Assembly,” Cavins-Tull said. “There are lots of good reasons to be tobacco-free and a number of complications in addressing behavior change, who is responsible for a tobacco-free environment and how to help those who want to change their tobacco use.”Cigars, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, snuff, e-cigarettes/vapes and hookahs are considered smoking and tobacco products for purposes of this policy and are prohibited on all university-owned or leased property or vehicles.Exceptions to the policy are people wishing to use tobacco as part of an established religious or cultural ceremony, artistic performance in a university-sponsored event or for educational/clinical purposes. However, those wishing to be exempt from the policy must request an exemption from Cavins-Tull.“I have had almost all positive responses,” she said. “Many people believed that we were already tobacco-free and some indicated that it was about time.”Senior nursing major Jordan Smith said her major is a key reason she supports the policy.“As a nursing major, I’ve seen the detrimental effects tobacco truly has on the human body,” she said. “I support it because it targets students that are still young enough to change or break habits before lifelong damage may occur.”However, there were some students who were against the policy and took to social media to voice their opinion.
