Dell’s forecast for a five to nine per cent rise in current fiscal-year revenue also surpassed US forecasts.However, some analysts questioned whether its gross margin of 21.5 per cent – about 15 per cent above the average forecast – was sustainable given a big boost from the falling prices of memory chips and other production costs.The firm reported a net profit of $927m (£574.6m), or 48 cents a share, in the three months to the end of January, up from $334m a year ago.Revenue climbed 5.3 per cent to $15.69bn. Dell is currently pushing to diversify its revenue base and move away from low-margin PCs in favour of data storage and mobile devices. whatsapp Tags: NULL

Downtime with… Jaguares amd Argentina scrum-half Tomas CubelliHow does it feel to relax after a busy season? We did a lot of travelling this year. We went to New Zealand a couple of times, Australia, South Africa, Japan. We’ve covered a lot of miles, particularly as the Jaguares made the final (of Super Rugby) so we had one extra trip.What stood out at the World Cup?I think the kindness and respect of the people in Japan. Everyone at the hotels and training fields – every place we went, people were awesome to us. The Jaguares’ pre-season started on 25 November.What do you do to chill out?Maybe go to the family farm. There’s our honey business, so I may help a bit there. Nothing serious but give a hand if it’s needed and enjoy being out the city.Wait, you have a honey business? Yes, and we have some cattle. I don’t do the beekeeping as I have more to do with rugby, but if needed I can be close.Most of my life I’ve been in Buenos Aires, and a lot of people there have a main job in the city and then do some farming when they have time off. I’d go to the farm for holidays. Maybe it will be a part of my life when I finish.What are your memories of living in Australia? It was maybe the strongest experience of my rugby career. It was the first time I left home. In Canberra I met great people and the Brumbies is a great club. We made the finals. There are memories I will have for life.Who are your funniest team-mates? We have a couple. Argentinians like to laugh a lot. We have a lot of funny players. For me Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro is a funny guy, Juan Figallo is funny. A couple of young players too – I really like Bautista Delguy’s sense of humour.Right laugh! Bautista Delguy poses for a portrait (Getty Images)What is your nickname? They call me ‘Cube’, which isn’t that bad. I have a couple more. Tomás Lavanini calls me Dobby, after the elf from Harry Potter. That’s not good for me. I cannot say what I call him back!Do you have any hidden talents? I think I’m becoming a good barista. I made coffees in Australia. It’s not a special talent. My team-mates will laugh reading this but I’m trying to get better.If you could be one of your team-mates, who would you be? I’d like to be one of the big guys for a bit. Any of them. Or I’d like to feel really, really fast, so one of the young wingers. Long server: Tomas Cubelli has won 75 caps for Argentina (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Pumas No 9 talks Brumbies, beekeeping and being a barista Do you have a guilty pleasure? Sweets. When I quit my diet it will be candy all the time. I like that.Do you have any superstitions? I have routines to feel ready but I’m not superstitious. I listen to music, stretch, relax. On game day I’ll try to have a coffee outside the hotel. During the World Cup that was difficult because there were a lot of people around, especially on game day.If your house was on fire and everyone was safe, what item would you save?If everyone’s safe, and my dog is safe, maybe some of the special things, like the presents I’d never get back or photographs that mean a lot.What kind of dog do you have? It’s a street dog. I adopted him. He’s called Richard, ha! Well, Ricardo in Spanish. The name is a bit random.How about your three dream guests for a dinner party? I’d like to have coffee with Rafael Nadal. He is a sports inspiration. Then I’d have Maradona. He would be funny! And I’d like to have a beer with Piri Weepu. It’s all about sports. I like the way he played.Jump to it: Spain’s Rafael Nadal in action at the Davis Cup (Getty Images)What do you miss about home when on tour? My girlfriend and my family. The food. Friends and shared time with my mates at the local rugby club, Belgrano.Are you still involved there? Every time I’m in Argentina I’m at the games, I want to stay involved. My brother Francisco plays for the first team. So I watch rugby there and get close to the feel of club rugby. It’s fun.Best advice that you’ve been given?Nothing special but I had the fortune of being really helped with kindness from people around me when I had tough times with injury. I learnt a lot from that.How’d you like to be remembered? As someone who really gave the most for their team. Someone who tried to make them better and who made special moments and brought good times to the team in terms of success.

Fireball from oil train drove 1,000 people from their homes.Huntington, W.Va. — A 109-car CSX train derailed along the Fayette-Kanawha county line 33 miles southeast of Charleston, W.Va., on Feb. 16. The result was a crude oil spill into the Kanawha River and massive fireballs shooting hundreds of feet high, causing one home to catch fire. About 1,000 people were evacuated from the affected area and two public water intakes on the river were closed.Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has placed Fayette and Kanawha counties under a state of emergency. Officials say they have yet to determine the cause of the incident.Eyewitness Randy Fitzwater told West Virginia’s MetroNews: “I heard this loud noise. It sounded like a jet airplane flying over my house real low … and then I heard an explosion, and I looked out my window and across the river and I could see this big ball of flame. I thought a jet airplane had crashed.”David McClung said he “felt the heat” of the accident from his home a half mile away from the scene. “It was a little scary. It was like an atomic bomb went off,” he told the Associated Press.The train was transporting crude oil from the Bakken shale formation in North Dakota to an oil depot in Yorktown, Va. Federal regulators say this oil is more volatile and dangerous to transport than other types of crude oil.Back in January 2014, the federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration stated that crude oil from the Bakken shale region may be more flammable and dangerous to ship by rail than traditional heavy crude from other regions. The agency came to that conclusion after a four-month study.Just two days before the latest West Virginia accident, on Feb. 14, a train carrying Bakken crude oil derailed in northern Ontario, Canada, spilling oil and causing a fire. In that incident, 29 of the 100 cars on the train went off the tracks near Timmins, Ontario. An “unknown amount” of oil was spilled.CSX reported that all the tanker cars in the West Virginia derailment were the new CPC 1232 models. They include safety upgrades voluntarily adopted by some in the industry four years ago and are supposed to be safer than the older DOT-111 tankers. The federal government has been seeking to phase out the DOT tankers because they have been found to be vulnerable to ripping open in an accident or derailment, resulting in fires and explosions.This is not the first time, however, that the supposedly safer 1232 models have failed to prevent crude oil explosions. Last April, a 105-car CSX crude oil train traveling the same route as the West Virginia train derailed in Lynchburg, Va. Several of the 17 tank cars that went off the track and fell into the James River were 1232 models, including one that spilled about 30,000 gallons of Bakken crude, causing a massive fire.Earlier, in July 2013, an accident involving a train carrying Bakken crude killed 47 people in the small town of Lac Megantic, Quebec.Just in the last year, crude oil trains have twice derailed in Philadelphia. And in March, a similar event took place near Albany, N.Y. In these heavily populated areas, the results could have been catastrophic. Fortunately, the tank cars in these derailments did not leak or explode.How many lives will it take before meaningful safety measures are imposed on the transportation of this extremely hazardous commodity?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Home Indiana Agriculture News Pioneer Hi-Bred Will Sell Soybeans by Seed Count Pioneer Hi-Bred Will Sell Soybeans by Seed Count Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 16, 2012 Facebook Twitter Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, will sell its soybean products by seed count per unit, rather than by weight, beginning in the fall of 2012 for varieties sold throughout North America for the 2013 planting season. The number of soybean seeds sold per unit by Pioneer will be 140,000. The advantage for Pioneer customers is that buying by seed count provides a simple, convenient and more accurate means of planning their soybean crop. “Our customers will benefit because they can more easily calculate the number of units they need based on their desired planting rates because the seed quantity per unit will always be consistent,” says Don Schafer, senior marketing manager, soybeans. “This change is in response to customer demand for consistent seed count packaging for more efficient field-by-field planning.”Prior to this change, Pioneer sold soybean seeds by weight (50 pounds of seed equals one unit). Soybean seeds can potentially vary in size, based on genetics and growing conditions, affecting the number of seeds per unit. With this change to selling by count, the number of seeds per unit will be consistent for Pioneer customers. Pioneer® brand soybeans will continue to be sold by count in traditional paper bags, PROBOX® units and jumbo bags, as well as through PROBulk® systems.For more information about Pioneer soybean varieties, visit www.pioneer.com or contact a local Pioneer sales professional.

Larry Long, Odessa city attorney. Home Local News Government UPDATE: City continues withholding records WhatsApp By admin – March 12, 2018 Pinterest Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp UPDATE: At 5:49 p.m. Monday, the city’s outside attorney Cal Hendrick said in a text message that “Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I anticipate releasing the docs tomorrow.”The City of Odessa continued to withhold records Monday showing the settlement reached with an employee of former City Attorney Larry Long related to a sexual harassment case — nearly a week after the state ordered the release of the documents.An outside attorney for the city, Cal Hendrick, has not responded to repeated inquiries from the Odessa American about the records since a March 6 finding from the state Attorney General’s office that the records are public and must be released. On Monday, the OA filed a complaint against the city and Hendrick with the AG’s office.The total costs of the sexual harassment case remain unclear. The legal assistant filed a complaint in July 2017 accusing Long of harassing her in ways such as touching her hair against her will and staring at her, an account that was corroborated by a human resources report.The OA requested the settlement records on Jan. 2. But Hendrick on behalf of the city fought to withhold them and argued that releasing the records “would be a violation of federal law” because of a confidentiality agreement between the city and the legal assistant as part of the resolution to the complaint she filed with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.But open government experts said any payment of public funds is clearly public information that the city should not be able to keep secret.Indeed, the AG’s office agreed, finding that “a governmental body cannot, through an agreement or contract, overrule or repeal provisions of the” Texas Public Information Act. The act specifically refers to “a settlement agreement to which a governmental body is a party” as one of the categories of public information.The Odessa City Council never disciplined Long, but ultimately allowed him to resign at the end of February in part so he could receive better retirement benefits. Long’s last day was Feb. 28.Calls to the new Interim City Attorney Gary Landers, who took charge on March 1, went unreturned on Monday. He had referred calls to Hendrick about the settlement records last week.Landers was hired through an outside firm that the city is paying about $25,000 a month while the City Council seeks a permanent replacement for Long. Landers has said he would review the way the city handles requests for public records with a goal of greater transparency.As it stands, Hendrick continues to fight the release of other information related to Long, including records about another complaint filed by a senior city assistant attorney that alleged pay discrimination based on gender.That complaint was filed about three months ago, and city leaders say the investigation remains ongoing.By Jan. 16, the city disclosed it had paid $23,300 for Hendrick’s work related to the sexual harassment complaint.

The authorisation allows AGDC to site, construct and operate the Alaska LNG project. (Credit: Pixabay/Martinelle) The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) has secured conditional approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for the $45bn Alaska LNG project.The authorisation allows AGDC to site, construct and operate the Alaska LNG project, which will liquefy and export LNG.In a press statement, the US FERC said: “The Alaska LNG Project is the last remaining LNG project before FERC covered by the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST-41 Act). The Commission took action today ahead of the scheduled June 4, 2020, final decision set by the statute.”Alaska LNG Project has capacity to export 20 MMTPA of LNGPlanned to be built in Nikiski, an industrial town located on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, south-west of Anchorage, the project involves liquefaction facilities designed to produce up to 20 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of LNG for export.The project also includes an approximately 807-mile-long pipeline capable of transporting up to 3.9 billion cubic feet of gas per day to the liquefaction facilities; a gas treatment plant in the Prudhoe Bay; and two additional natural gas pipelines connecting production units to the gas treatment plant.The gas produced by the project will be exported to nations with which the US has signed a Free Trade Agreement (FTA).Earlier, a conditional approval has also been granted by US DOE to export 20 MMTPA of natural gas to nations that do not have an FTA with the country.Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy said: “Today’s federal authorization is a key step in determining if Alaska LNG is competitive and economically beneficial for Alaska. I commend the AGDC team for their diligence.“The ongoing project economic review and discussions with potential partners will determine the next steps for this project.”AGDC President Frank Richards said: “This approval, a major milestone in the development of the project, signifies the completion of a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation that has engaged environmental and energy experts at dozens of federal and state regulatory agencies.”Recently, the staff of the FERC has issued final environmental impact statement for the Alaska LNG project. The project will have a capacity to produce up to 20 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) of LNG for export
