DP World NIIF to Build Free Trade Warehousing Zone in India

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: DP World A joint venture of DP World and National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) has won the bid to develop and operate the Free Trade Warehousing Zone (FTWZ) at India’s largest container gateway – Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT).Hindustan Infralog Private Limited (HIPL), the JV between Dubai’s port and terminal operator (65%) and India’s fund manager (35%), is to build FTWZ for USD 78 million. The facility is expected to be operational by 2020.HIPL is the recently created investment vehicle between DP World and NIIF to invest up to USD 3 billion in ports, logistics and related sectors in India. This is the second investment for HIPL following the acquisition of a 90% stake in multimodal logistics company Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Sheva).As informed, the FTWZ comes with a long-term concession of 60 years and will be developed across 18 hectares at JNPT’s Special Economic Zone (SEZ).JNPT is a key gateway hub handling approximately 5 million TEU’s per annum which equates to 33% of India’s container traffic. The FTWZ’s strategic proximity to the port and the upcoming Navi Mumbai International Airport and western dedicated freight corridor, gives it direct access to global and domestic markets, according to DP World and NIIF.The project is aimed at positioning India as a global trading hub and further supporting the government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign.“We are delighted to have won this long-term concession to develop the Free Trade Warehousing Zone in such a strategic location (…) this asset strongly complements our port terminals in JNPT and our newly acquired inland Continental-Warehousing-Corporation business,” Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World, said.last_img read more

Paul Tagliabue Intends To Oversee Saints Bounty Hearing

Paul Tagliabue denied a motion to recuse himself as the arbitrator for the appeals hearing of the players involved and suspended in the New Orleans Saints the bounty program as defined by current commissioner Roger Goodell, according to league sources.Tagliabue, the former NFL commissioner, informed the players’ attorneys of his decision, saying that he will move forward with establishing a date for the hearing and also formalizing the process on which the appeal will be heard. Sources said discussions of the process itself will consume “a fair amount of time” without a specific time frame yet.The hearing is scheduled for Nov. 20, a league source told ESPN.In deciding to hear the case, Tagliabue dismissed the argument of partiality players had made in their motion, citing that he is not only the former commissioner but also is a member of the law firm that represents Goodell in legal matters before a New Orleans federal court.The players have asked the court to recuse Tagliabue as the appeals arbitrator but there has been no ruling on that motion.As the two sides discuss the forthcoming appeals process, the players remain adamant that Taglaibue makes available witnesses such as former Saints assistants Gregg Williams and Mike Cerullo, who provided declarations the NFL used as evidence to discipline the players.The process could continue throughout November, which would allow Saints linebacker Jonathan Vliman and and defensive end Will Smith to continue playing until Tagliabue renders a decision or the court intervenes on their behalf.Vilma played in his first game of the season Monday night against Philadelphia and provided a defensive spark in the Saints’ 28-13 victory over the Eagles. He had been battling injuries after being reinstated last month. read more

Carlo Ancelotti believes nobody has ever underestimated Fabian Ruiz

first_imgA last minute goal from Dries Mertens gave Napoli victory against Roma and Napoli club’s manager Carlo Ancelotti reveals why he believes in Fabian Ruiz.“Fabian Ruiz played a great match, nobody has ever underestimated him. We always believed in him and now slowly but surely, he’s showing his quality. Usually, after Champions League games, there’s a drop in concentration during the weekend. Today, however, the squad responded in the best possible way and I’m very happy about that,” he said via Gianlucadimarzio.“In our midfield, we have a lot of quality players. We lost Jorginho, who was fundamental for us, but there are a lot of young, important players that are doing well and I have a lot of choices with who I could play in that role.”last_img

San Diego Superior Court jury awards Drew Brees and his wife just

first_img SAN DIEGO ( KUSI) – A San Diego Superior Court jury awarded more than $6.1 million in damages Friday to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife in a lawsuit they filed against a La Jolla jeweler who they said sold them $15 million in diamonds at far above their actual value.Following two days of deliberations, jurors found Vahid Moradi liable for defrauding the couple by claiming to be an expert in acquiring investment- grade diamonds, several of which he sold to the Breeses between 2012 and 2016.However, when the couple took the diamonds to an independent appraiser in 2017, they were told that the diamonds were worth about $6.7 million less than they had paid, according to Brees’ attorneys.Brees, 40, was not present when the verdict was read, during which the panel awarded him $6,130,767 in damages, but did testify during the early part of the trial. Brees is currently in training camp for the 2019 NFL season.During closing arguments on Wednesday, Brees’ attorney, Andrew Kim, told jurors that Moradi claimed he was an expert in colored diamonds, and could negotiate with sellers around the world to acquire diamonds that were expected to appreciate in value.Among the most egregious examples Brees’ attorneys pointed to was a diamond ring Moradi sold the Breeses for $8.1 million that was actually worth $3.75 million.Another diamond Moradi allegedly claimed was from Europe was actually purchased from a dealer in Orange County, Kim said.Moradi’s attorney, Peter Ross, said Aldo Dinelli, a Houston-based jeweler the Breeses consulted to appraise the diamonds, was a “con man” who scammed the couple.The attorney alleged that Dinelli advised the Breeses that Moradi had scammed them, even though he did not know how much the Breeses had paid for the pieces.Ross said Dinelli informed Brees that he’d been ripped off, then offered up some diamonds of his own for Brees to purchase.“Dinelli is supposed to be an independent expert, not a competitor to (Moradi’s company) CJ Charles,” Ross said.Though Brees’ attorneys alleged that an oral agreement existed between Brees and Moradi that Moradi would secure investment-grade diamonds for Brees, Ross said that thousands of texts and emails make no mention of such an arrangement. Instead, Ross says Brees got “just what he paid for,” and that many of the diamonds were purchased as gifts for Brees’ wife, Brittany.Further, Ross said any discrepancies between what Moradi paid to obtain the diamonds and what the Breeses paid him was part of a standard markup that is commonplace within the industry to allow retailers to cover business expenses.

Gannett Shutters USA Weekend Magazine

first_imgThe magazine had struggled recently with ad pages—it lost 9.7 percent last year, according to the last available PIB figures, by far the worse performance of any Sunday magazine—and saw its readership cut by almost 900,000 to 11.1 million in step with the “butterfly” experiment.The move sheds further light on the Sunday magazine market after Condé Nast parent company, Advance Publications, sold Parade and Dash in September after reports of declining performance. It also follows a September round of layoffs at USA Today aimed at cost reductions ahead of a spin-off from Gannett next year. Gannett announced that it’s shutting down its weekend magazine, USA Weekend, effective Dec. 28.About 30 staffers will be let go as a result, according to multiple reports.The move comes a year after Gannett began distributing condensed “butterfly” editions of USA Today into many of its local papers. Larry Kramer, president and publisher of USA Today, says consumer research ultimately led them to pick those “butterfly” editions over USA Weekend.”After evaluating the research, many of our readers have told us that they enjoy the addition of the USA Today content into their local publications, and they have especially enjoyed the expanded weekend Life content, given its timely entertainment and lifestyle news,” Kramer says in a statement. “With the success of our weekend Life offering, we believe it provides our readers and affiliates with a superior product to USA Weekend.” last_img read more

UN chief calls to stand united against antiMuslim hatred

first_imgThe UN Secretary-General António Guterres participates in a wreath-laying ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York for colleagues who died in the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 on 15 March 2019 in New York City. AFP File PhotoUN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged the international community to “stand united against anti-Muslim hatred” following a mass shooting targeting two mosques in New Zealand on Friday, reports UNB.The shooting has left at least 49 dead, including three Bangladesh nationals, and many others wounded, some critically.“I’m saddened and strongly condemn the shooting of innocent people as they prayed peacefully in mosques in New Zealand,” tweeted the UN chief, expressing his “deepest condolences to the victims’ families.”“Today and every day, we must stand united against anti-Muslim hatred, and all forms of bigotry and terror,” he stressed.A terrorist, who police have described as being in his late 20s, has been arrested and charged with murder, according to UN News.According to news reports, he live-streamed himself via a head-mounted camera online, firing at worshippers inside the Al Noor mosque in the largest city on the South Island of New Zealand, Christchurch.A second attack also took place at the city’s Linwood Mosque.Flowers and a New Zealand national flag are seen at a memorial as tributes to victims of the mosque attacks near Linwood mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, on 16 March 2019.

Saying “our hearts break with news,” she called the aggression “a senseless attack on a peaceful community and the universal right to freedom of worship.”last_img read more
