Libya protesters lift blockades easing blackout threat

first_imgTRIPOLI- Ethnic minority protesters announced on Thursday they were ending blockades of fuel deliveries to power stations in western and southern Libya that had threatened widespread blackouts.The action by members of the Berber and Toubou minorities had drawn a warning by Electricity Minister Ali Mhirig on Wednesday that several cities could be plunged into darkness if the blockades continued.The Berber activists said they were suspending the blockade they began in September of a gas pipeline serving several power stations in the west. Berbers, about 10 percent of Libya’s population, were persecuted under now-slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi and feel marginalised under the new regime even though they played a key role in the 2011 uprising.The Al-Sarir plant in the south, meanwhile, resumed generating power after Toubou activists ended a blockade of fuel deliveries, its director Hashem Malek told the official LANA news agency.The Toubou, who form a significant part of the population in the southeast, also played a significant role in the uprising which they feel has gone unrewarded.Electricity production in the North African nation has been affected since July when armed protesters demanding regional autonomy blockaded the main oil facilities in the east.Oil output has plunged to about 250,000 barrels per day from nearly 1.5 million bpd normally.Foreign firms tasked with repairing power plants damaged in the uprising have also pulled out staff in the face of persistent unrest.last_img read more

Messi Is More Dominant Than Ever — And Barcelona Is More Dependent

2010-1133.7%36.1%20.3% 2015-1626.528.126.6 Messi’s share These personnel issues show up clearly in the stat sheet. Where once Barcelona was among the highest-pressing teams in the world, now the Blaugrana don’t force turnovers up the field at the same rate. Barcelona’s defensive numbers have still declined as its midfielders have lost range — and the team’s more conservative approach could only slow the decline, not prevent it entirely.This defensive weakness offers Liverpool its primary tactical opportunity. If Jurgen Klopp’s side can pull Barcelona into a transition game and open up midfield, there will be advantageous matchups to exploit. If Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane can find themselves running in space, Rakitic and Busquets are unlikely to slow them down.But such a transition game has a downside for Liverpool. And that’s Messi. If Liverpool seeks to exploit the weaknesses of Barcelona’s defense and create transition opportunities, that will give Messi room to operate. As he has shifted from a right-sided forward to a pure central playmaker, Messi has had to work in tighter spaces, often deeper on the pitch. 2014-1528.031.426.2 Data from La Liga and Champions League matchesSource: Opta Sports 2014-1555.527.3 2013-1427.131.819.5 2011-1230.036.121.5 Barca is even more dependent on MessiThe share of Barcelona’s production attributed to Lionel Messi, adjusted for playing time, 2010-2019 2012-1332.037.419.5 2016-1751.830.7 2018-19*47.242.0 2018-1934.741.333.6 2012-1349.632.6 In some ways, Liverpool’s task on Wednesday while facing Barcelona in the Champions League semifinal is simple. All the Reds likely have to do to reach a second consecutive European final is contain Lionel Messi, the greatest soccer player of all time.In past seasons, such a description might have been oversimplifying. Back when Xavi and Andres Iniesta roamed midfield for Barcelona, the pair’s game control and precision passing could dominate matches. More recently, when Neymar and a younger Luis Suarez joined Messi in the forward line, the interchanging of this three-headed monster was the core problem for opponents to solve. Today, the superstar supporting cast at Camp Nou is largely gone or aged out of its prime. But the astounding thing about Messi is that at age 31, he is still good enough to carry a team on his back very nearly to the top of the Soccer Power Index rankings, not to mention to an easy league title and a Copa del Rey final. Now he has the chance to bring the club a sixth Champions League title.From 2010-11 through 2013-14, when Barcelona was either managed by Pep Guardiola or still functioning mostly in his systems, Messi was a forward. He operated in the “false nine” role he made famous and ran up incredible goal-scoring and assist production, while ball progression responsibilities fell as much to him as to great midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta. The team changed in 2014-15, when Luis Enrique took over, Suarez arrived as an elite center forward and Xavi fell out of the rotation. Messi switched to a role on the right and became the team’s primary ball progressor, while Suarez and Neymar helped share the goal-scoring load.Today, increasingly, Messi just does it all. He is the lone true ball progression engine, and he’s creating an even higher percentage of his team’s goals and chances than he did at his peak, according to data from analytics firm Opta Sports. 2017-1830.732.428.1 2011-1255.425.8 2010-1156.0%25.0 *Adjusted for 38-match seasonData from La Liga matchesSource: Opta Sports 2013-1452.430.5 SeasonPressing RateExpected Goals Allowed 2016-1729.431.423.9 seasonExpected Goals + AssistsGoals + AssistsProgressive Passes + Runs 2015-1653.133.6 Messi receives the ball more often now in the back half of the pitch and the center. These are areas that normally Liverpool would expect to have at least two if not all three of its central midfielders covering. In a transition game, however, Messi might have more space to work and find passes either to Suarez or perhaps an onrushing fullback.1Jordi Alba has been Barcelona’s top attacking outlet since the departure of Neymar.The other option for Liverpool, if that seems too much of a risk, would be not to open up the throttle and play in transition but to sit deeper and look for less frequent counterattacking opportunities. This would deny Messi space to find passes. Of course, this would be nothing new. Barcelona has often faced opponents who sat deep and denied space. What has changed, however, is Barcelona’s approach. Where once Barca would patiently hold the ball forever until it unlocked an opponent, now Messi has started gunning. In the past two seasons, Messi has attempted 121 open-play shots from outside the box as well as 108 direct free kicks. In the two seasons prior, 2015-16 and 2016-17, he attempted just 83 open-play shots from outside the box and 87 direct free kicks. Messi has increased his production outside the penalty area from eight goals per season to 10.5 per season. Barca’s defense isn’t the sameBarcelona’s pressing rate and expected goals allowed by season 2017-1847.838.5 The main reason that Barcelona is increasingly a one-man team is that the other players are not as great anymore. Luis Suarez at 32 isn’t the dynamic center forward he used to be. Neymar, Xavi and Iniesta are gone. Sergio Busquets, 30, and Ivan Rakitic, 31, cannot cover ground in midfield like they used to. The result is a team that is less able to supplement the attack either with forward runs or with an aggressive high press to cause turnovers because the midfield needs to be more stable and defensive. Early in the season, Barcelona was playing more aggressive midfield tactics and was rewarded with a string of goals conceded. Manager Ernesto Valverde has since pulled back the press, which prevented a disaster but has left Messi carrying the team. This increase in production counts, but it is not spectacular. Messi has managed to be just as dangerous a ball progressor while letting it fly more frequently. But the risk Messi poses against a set defense, firing from long range, is probably one that an opponent can accept. While Messi is more dangerous shooting the ball than just about anyone else in soccer, his increased distance shooting has led to only a couple more goals over a long season. This isn’t a strategy to beat Messi — such a thing does not exist. But on balance, the statistical record suggests that even the greatest of all time has not turned gunning from 20 yards into a killer attacking plan.Barcelona is Lionel Messi at this point, and game-planning to stop Barcelona is now as simple as figuring out how to stop Messi. Which has, of course, never been simple. But with less expansive passers behind him and less explosive forwards ahead, he has never had fewer weapons among his teammates. Liverpool can either play a more risky strategy of exploiting Barcelona’s now-shaky defense or a more conservative strategy that looks to force Messi into shooting from range. Both strategies could easily be defeated by Messi finding space in transition or driving home a great shot from distance. But on balance, Liverpool is probably better off with the latter risk than letting Messi get free on the break.Check out our latest soccer predictions. read more

New Chilean President a popular choice for the mining industry as China

first_imgInternational PBX Ventures reports that international mining groups this week have been effusive in their support of Chile’s newly elected president, center-right candidate Sebastián Piñera, a billionaire businessman with substantial holdings in the airline Lan, Chilevision (a TV station) and Colo Colo (a popular soccer team). Canada’s Globe and Mail reported a series of interviews Monday with international mining leaders, all ecstatic with the election results and all saying the mineral-rich and politically stable country will attract even more foreign mining investment under its new leader.“His reputation is to have a favourable stance towards business and taxes, so those are all positives,” said Tye Burt, the President and CEO of Kinross Gold, which operates two mines in Chile and is considering investing close to $2 billion more on a pair of development projects. “But even before Piñera stepped in, we think Chile is absolutely one of the best jurisdictions in the world for what we do,” Burt said.Piñera reportedly plans to offer new tax incentives to mining companies that develop new technologies and expand mining research. Chile already has an extremely low corporate tax rate of about 17% for foreign mining firms on income that is reinvested back in the country.Burt believes Chile’s tax policy is so effective it should serve as a model for Canada’s mining tax regime. “I’ve been trying to urge the Canadian Government to think about a similar stance to help Canada remain an attractive place for foreign investment in mining,” he told the Globe and Mail.Piñera’s election brings to an end 20 years of power of the center-left Concertacion coalition, a four-party alliance that includes the Christian Democratic Party, the Socialist Party, the Party for Democracy and the Radical Party. Piñera’s presidential bid was supported by Chile’s two rightist parties – his own moderate-right National Renovation (RN) party and the further-right Independent Democratic Union (UDI) party.Among other campaign promises, Pinera pledged to sell up to 20% of state-owned copper company Codelco, the world’s largest copper producer. Participation in the world’s largest copper producer would likely be sold to private pension funds in Chile, although Pinera’s advisers have also floated the idea of listing Codelco shares on Chile’s stock exchange.The new president has also suggested creating incentives for companies to build desalination plants to provide water to mining operations in dry regions such as the Atacama Desert, where miners including Teck, Kinross and BHP Billiton, the world’s largest mining company, all have operations. The latter is already using desalinated water.Teck, Canada’s largest base-metals mining company, has spent more than $4-billion acquiring copper assets in Chile in the past three years. “Chile has great copper resources. It has a very stable political and economic system and a stable and well thought-out tax regime. Those factors are all good for encouraging investment,” said Greg Waller, Teck’s VP of Investor Relations.Pinera’s opponent, Sen. Eduardo Frei, had pledged to double revenues from Chile’s 5% mining royalty to raise an additional $300 million per year for government coffers, which raised mining firms’ fears.Orest Wowkodaw, a mining analyst at Canaccord Adams, said Pinera’s election can only strengthen Chile’s lead on rival countries as South America’s top mining jurisdiction. “It is the best. It is that simple. Ask any mining executive where they want to own assets in South America and No. 1 on their list is always Chile,” he said. International PBX also noted the Chinese government announcing plans to part finance exploration work undertaken by Chinese mining firms operating in Chile. “The Chinese government will cover 40-50% of the exploration costs incurred by any Chinese mining companies searching for deposits overseas” said Fernando Reyes Chilean ambassador to Beijing. “As the world’s largest copper producer, Chile is a prime target for this financing.”This policy follows a recommendation made last October by the Chile-China Mineral Commission that Beijing should directly invest in Chilean mining operations in order to boost Chinese industry.Chinese mining company Shunde Rixin recently announced a $2.2 billion investment in the Vallenar iron ore mine in Chile’s Atacama region. Economists predict that reserves at the Vallenar facility will satisfy 10% of China’s iron ore demand in the coming years.Chile’s trade with China grew by 6.3% in the nine months up to September 2009, while the Asian giant has toppled the US as Chile’s most important customer for the past two years.last_img read more

Tata Sons now plans to expel Cyrus Mistry from its board

first_imgFollowing several exits, Cyrus Mistry, the ousted chairman of Tata Sons, may also be removed from the board of Tata Sons. Tata Sons served a notice to Mistry on Tuesday informing him about the company’s intention.”Tata officials are going to meet over the next couple of days to take stock of the entire situation. There is a proposal to remove Mistry from the board,” a person aware of the development, was quoted as saying by Mint.

On the other hand, Mistry’s family holds 18.4 percent stake in Tata Sons, and is likely to vote against the proposal. Despite that, the resolution is likely to be passed. According to the publication, Tata Sons will cite “breach of confidentiality” as the primary reason for seeking Mistry’s ouster. Tata Sons, the holding company of the $114 billion salt-to-software conglomerate had served a legal notice to its former chairman, Cyrus Mistry, on December 27. “By passing confidential and price-sensitive information accessed by you in your capacity as a director of Tata Sons to companies owned and controlled by your family, you have acted in complete violation of your confidentiality undertakings to Tata Sons and your obligations under the Tata Code of Conduct,” the legal notice stated.last_img read more

Now the Cavs have won 5-straight, 7 of 9, and their defensive rotations are significantly improved. LeBron isn’t done yet.
