whatsapp Phone hacking scandal hangs over Sky deal RUPERT Murdoch’s planned takeover of BSkyB should not be affected by his UK news arm admitting a long-running phone hacking scandal, politicians said yesterday, but the scandal threatened to overshadow the prospective deal. News International, parent company of the News of the World tabloid, said on Friday it would admit liability and pay compensation in some civil cases, and issued a statement on page two of yesterday’s paper. It was an about-turn from the media group’s previous denial that it knew journalists were accessing voicemail messages of the royal family, politicians, celebrities and sports stars.Some critics said the admission raised questions about News Corp’s £8.5bn planned purchase of BSkyB, which is set to be given the green light by culture secretary Jeremy Hunt in the next few weeks.But the Liberal Democrat chief secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said that while police investigations must continue into “a serious scandal”, it did not raise questions over the deal. “The decision about BSkyB and News Corp is something which is being considered completely separately,” he told the BBC. whatsapp KCS-content Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULL Sunday 10 April 2011 11:08 pm Show Comments ▼

(6)Isle of WightPEDL33195%£1.1m£1.2m (1), (2), (4), (6) No change to interests and valuations since my previous article.(3) UKOG has increased its interest in Horse Hill to 85.635% from 46.735% after deals with three parties. Average prices paid put the total value of the asset at £46.3m (previously £46.2m). The value of UKOG’s interest has increased to £39.6m (previously £21.6m).(5) UKOG has increased its interest in A24 (formerly Holmwood) to 67.5% from 40% after deals with two parties. The prices paid put the total value of the asset at £1.5m (previously £7.5m). The value of UKOG’s interest is £1m (previously £3m).Totting up, I previously had a value of £30.5m on UKOG’s licence interests. With 5.57bn shares in issue, this equated to 0.55p a share. Today, its licence interests are £46.5m. The number of shares in issue stands at 7.42bn, and this equates to 0.63p a share. So, the valuation is very close to UKOG’s current 0.65p share price.Bargain of the decade?Aside from increasing its interests in the Horse Hill and A24 licences, UKOG has made operational progress. Notably, it’s continued extended testing of its Horse Hill-1 well at both the Portland and Kimmeridge levels. It’s also drilled a horizontal well — Horse Hill-2/2z — designed to be a future production well from the Portland pool.However, we’ve still had no updated Competent Persons Report (CPR) for the Portland or a first CPR for the Kimmeridge. As such, UKOG’s proved reserves (negligible) are little changed from 14 months ago.With no reserve-based valuation available to me, and no reserve-based lending available to the company, the risk to shareholders of further dilution — and to my 0.63p a share valuation — is significant. Indeed, I view it as ominous that the company has recently sought (and gained) authority to issue up to 3bn new shares.Due to the absence of CPRs and presence of high dilution risk, I’d want to see the share price at a significant discount to 0.63p. As such, I continue to view UKOG as a stock to avoid at the present time. (1)Horndean/AvingtonPL211/PEDL07010%/5%£1.3m£17.3m Could the UKOG share price now be the bargain of the decade?

As such, I felt it was better valued by the prices at which its various licences had changed hands between knowledgeable trade parties.I wrote: “UKOG has been a willing buyer, and numerous trade parties have been willing sellers, of assets totalling £30.5m, which equates to 0.55p a share.” Things have changed over 14 months, so let me begin by updating the table of valuations from the previous article.

Additionally, candidates must be nominated by a member of the AIA Board of Directors, Strategic Council, chapter leadership, or Knowledge Communities,” it continued. “Nominations are subject to the review and consideration of a jury.”Bosely served as director and CEO of the Gamble House under University of Southern California ownership from 1992 through 2019, when he went on to form the Gamble House Conservancy.He authored the book “Greene and Greene,” delving into the storied architecture firm, in 2000. It “remains the definitive documentation of the firm’s work,” according to the AIA statement.“For nearly 50 years, Edward “Ted” Bosley, Hon. AIA, has vigorously promoted the importance of architecture through his preservation efforts, his teaching endeavors, and the tours he has led both at home and abroad,” the statement said. “His keen interest in the Arts and Crafts movement and the work of Greene & Greene has helped inject architecture into the context of American culture while broadening access to the firm’s influential work. In everything he does, Bosley treats architecture with the careful consideration of a practitioner and has positioned himself as one of the profession’s critical assets and allies.”Bosley was named an honorary member of the AIA Pasadena in 1997, according to the national organization.“Recognizing that a well-preserved landmark is meaningless unless it engages with its community and visitors through inspired interpretation, Bosley has instilled the importance of The Gamble House in more than 600 volunteer docents, countless elementary and high school students, and 25,000 annual visitors,” the statement said.“Though not an architect, his depth of knowledge and ability to engage with the greater public advances the profession in meaningful and measurable ways,” according to the AIA statement.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago As the economy continues toward recovery, albeit at a slower pace, the housing market will continue to display vibrancy amid an increase in residential construction spending, according to the latest Economic & Housing Weekly Note published by Fannie Mae.“Data in September showed that the economic recovery is still ongoing, though there were more signs that the pace of recovery is slowing,” wrote Ricky Goyette, Associate with Fannie Mae’s Economic and Strategic Research Team. “Job growth continued in September, though once again the pace slowed from the prior month. Total nonfarm payroll employment remains 7.0% below the level seen in February.”Goyette pointed out that while personal income levels were down in August, “this was entirely attributable to a decrease in unemployment insurance benefits” and was counterbalanced by “sharp increases in both consumer confidence and light vehicle sales in September.” As a result, Goyette theorized a continuation of consumer spending, although at a slower pace than seen during the summer.On the housing front, Goyette noted Fannie Mae remained bullish on this market.“In housing, data released this week continued to show strength in the housing market, with an increase in pending sales to record levels,” he continued. “The increase in September private residential construction spending supports our outlook for a strong rebound in residential fixed investment in the third quarter.”The data cited by Goyette included the latest Pending Home Sales Index from the National Association of Realtors, which spiked by 8.8% from August to September, reaching a record high of 132.8; the year-over-year pending sales soared by 24.2%. On the construction side, the data was culled from the U.S. Census Bureau’s findings that private residential construction spending rose 3.7% in September while new single-family housing spending increased 5.5%, the largest monthly increase since July 2009. Compared to one year earlier, new single-family spending was up by 2.22%.
