Not enough good shows in cable deal

first_imgI looked forward to reading the results of the Golden Globe Awards in The Gazette. Perhaps there would be some great new winning shows that I could watch on TV. Unfortunately, most of the winners are not available to me because they are on HBO, Hulu, Netflix and Amazon. Last month I paid Spectrum $189.00.

ABP appoints chair following abrupt departure of Henk Brouwer

first_imgCorien Wortmann-Kool, a former Christian Democrat politician, is to become the chair of ABP from 1 January, the fund has confirmed. Wortmann-Kool, who served as an MEP for 10 years until July this year, was chosen for her extensive network in Brussels and knowledge of the financial sector, according to the €334bn pension fund.ABP vice-chairman José Meijer said Wortmann-Kool offered an ideal combination of knowledge and experience.Wortmann-Kool emphasised her desire for “good and honest communication with members” and advocated clarity of communication about certainties and uncertainties, in order that members know what they can expect. “Trust in pension funds has fallen in recent years,” she said.“For future years, there are many changes in the pipeline, which may increase insecurity among members.”Wortmann-Kool was an MEP for 10 years until July 2014 before stepping down ahead of the European Parliament elections and served as legislative spokesperson for the financial sector for the European People’s Party. From 2009, she was the Dutch representative on the ECON committee, which oversees the IORP Directive, and also deputy chair of the EVP grouping.Wortmann-Kool succeeds Henk Brouwer, who unexpectedly departed as ABP chair in May 2014 after three years in the post and a year and a half before his term was due to expire. Two vice-chairs, Cees de Veer and José Meijer, have chaired the board in the interim.ABP’s board has 12 members, with paritarian membership divided between employer and employee representatives, but Wortmann-Kool will act independently.last_img read more

Trio show intent to develop Gulf Coast express pipeline

first_imgKinder Morgan Texas Pipeline, a Kinder Morgan unit, DCP Midstream and a Targa Resources affiliate signed a letter of intent to develop the proposed Gulf Coast Express pipeline. The pipeline would provide an outlet for increased natural gas production from the Permian Basin to growing markets along the Texas Gulf Coast.As part of the definitive agreements subject to negotiation, Targa and DCP Midstream would commit significant volumes to the proposed project, including certain volumes provided by Pioneer Natural Resources company, a joint owner in Targa’s WestTX Permian Basin system and one of the largest producers in the Permian Basin.The capacity of the GCX project is expected to be approximately 1.92 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) and would include a lateral into the Midland Basin, consisting of approximately 50 miles of 36-inch pipeline and associated compression to serve gas processing facilities owned by Targa, as well as facilities owned jointly by Targa and Pioneer.The expected in-service date of the pipeline continues to be scheduled for the second half of 2019, pending the timely completion of definitive agreements with shippers and a final investment decision by the three parties.Per the terms of the letter of intent, KMI would build, operate and own a 50 percent interest in the GCX project, and DCP Midstream and Targa would each hold a 25 percent equity interest in the project.It is anticipated that natural gas supply would be sourced into the project from multiple locations, including existing receipt points along KMI’s KMTP and El Paso natural gas pipeline systems in the Permian Basin, a proposed interconnection with the Trans-Pecos Pipeline, and additional interconnections to both intrastate and interstate pipeline systems in the Waha area.Deliveries of natural gas into the Agua Dulce area would include points into KMTP’s existing Gulf Coast network, KMI-owned intrastate affiliates (KM Tejas and KM Border pipelines), the Valley Crossing pipeline, the NET Mexico header, and multiple other intrastate and interstate natural gas pipelines.last_img read more

Ander Herrera says he is happy at Manchester United amid exit talk

first_img However, in a message posted on Twitter on Tuesday, Herrera attempted to allay fears he is unhappy. Alongside a picture containing part of an interview he did with the club’s matchday programme for last week’s game against PSV Eindhoven, Herrera said: “Interview given last week. Very happy at Manchester United.” The image contains the pull quote: “I don’t want this dream to finish. I have to play as well as possible if I want to play as long as I can at this club.” Herrera, who has made 45 appearances and scored 11 times since moving to England, had stated in the interview that he was determined to fight for his place having moved from Athletic Club in the summer of 2014. “When I was in Spain, I always thought about the best teams in the world and maybe the biggest and most-supported club is Manchester United,” he told United Review. “So I worked very hard to be here. When I was in Spain, I was very professional and had to be very consistent to get here. “Now I am here, I always say the same thing: the most difficult thing is to stay at a big club. “Of course, it is difficult to arrive at a big team in the first place, but it is even harder to stay there. The club has the possibility to sign new players and it’s a very powerful club so all players want to play here. I have to fight for my position and gain my position and I will do it.” Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has stressed he is “very happy” at Old Trafford after a report emerged that he may be unsettled. The 26-year-old Spaniard has missed United’s past two games with a hamstring injury but has not always been a first-choice selection when fit under Louis van Gaal anyway. Van Gaal has utilised him in a variety of different positions and one national newspaper claimed Herrera would seek discussions about his future with the club. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Sanjay Manjrekar trolled for advising Jasprit Bumrah on social media

first_imgMumbai: Former India batsman-turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar was trolled on social media for trying to advise Jasprit Bumrah on how to bowl, after the third T20I against New Zealand in Hamilton on Wednesday.Ace India pacer Bumrah, considered one of the best bowlers going around, leaked 17 runs in the Super Over after the match was tied as Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill tonked him around the park.In the end, Rohit Sharma ensured India win and take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series with an unbeaten 15 (which included two sixes).Manjrekar tweeted after the match: “Watched that super over from Bumrah. He is such a fabulous bowler but he could use the crease a little more to create different delivery angles.”Twitter users trolled him saying he was an “average” player while others asked him not to advise Bumrah.“Stop it, you were an average player,” one user tweeted.“Sanjay Manjrekar of 2019 is back at 2020. Why Sanjay? I think getting mass abuse is your passion,” tweeted another.Hitman Rohit hit a brilliant unbeaten 15 (including two sixes) in the Super Over as India chased down New Zealand’s score of 17 to win the third T20I at Seddon Park.New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson followed up his excellent 95 with an unbeaten 11 in the Super Over, but it just wasn’t enough as Rohit and K.L. Rahul (5*) took Tim Southee to the cleaners to underline their strength as a unit ahead of the T20 World Cup at the end of the year.This after the T20I was tied as India pacer Mohammed Shami came up with a classic last over just when it looked like Williamson would take the Kiwis home with a batting master-class.Rohit was at his sublime best as he hit a well composed 65 to take India to 179/5. But Kiwi skipper Williamson waged a lone battle and almost took the game away from India with nine runs needed off six balls before Shami removed him and Ross Taylor to take the match to the Super Over.
