The FTSE 250-listed firm closed up 10.43 per cent yesterday at 17.9p. The shares remain nearly 60 per cent short of their 12-month high. Premier confirmed on Sunday it had received an approach for its meat-free division, which includes Quorn and Cauldron Foods. The company would not reveal who the interested party was, or what the asking price would be. Analysts estimated the division could sell for between £200m to £250m yesterday. Quorn represents a small slice of Premier, with sales last year of £118m, or 4.4 per cent of total turnover. The company said in August it would pay off £100m of debt per year, in a fresh attempt to cut its £1.4bn debt pile. “A disposal such as Quorn would be an encouraging step, however there will be no silver bullet and debt will remain high, with the company still locked into expensive swap agreements,” warned Warren Ackerman of Evolution Securities. Institutional shareholders such as Paulson & Co, Warburg Pincus and Franklin Templeton are thought to have increased pressure on the company to speed up its plans to unload debt. Chief executive Robert Schofield launched a £400m debt restructuring and cash call in 2009 to avoid breaching banking covenants. Several analysts raised concerns that the company risks selling its cash-generating brands for scant return. “Quorn is the one of the few areas of the company that has long-term international growth potential. This means the big fast-moving consumer goods players will be taking notice, but at the same time it is one of the company’s crown jewels,” said Shore Capital analyst Darren Shirley.

For Toms + McNally Design, Architecture is a response to context. Millgrove House, located in rural Hamilton, sits on a property that contained an abandoned apple orchard, and a hay-growing farm for local use. Situated between mature treelines and forests, the site is gently rolling. As a result, the design strategy was to use the topography in order to maintain a modest appearance from the street while providing a spacious home for a middle-aged couple with four adult children.Save this picture!© Revelateur StudioSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Revelateur StudioA place to live in comfortably, entertain and grow older, the house aims to accommodate their expanding family including the grandchildren. The kitchen, dining and living rooms—the spaces in which they cook, spend time and make memories together—are the focal points of the of the house. These spaces are combined in one generous volume capped with a sloped douglas fir roof rising to the south, opening up expansive views of the meadows and forests. The lower level—a walkout made possible by the topography of the site—is kept almost entirely column free, keeping it bright and not obscuring views of the landscape.Save this picture!© Revelateur StudioIn addition to building a house that responds to the context and unique lifestyles of the client, the team at Toms + McNally Design experimented with how space is defined and used natural materials and day lighting to bring joy to the residents. Using natural materials was very important to the client, thus the palette for the project includes three types of wood (douglas fir roof beams and deck, walnut and white oak flooring) as well as limestone, and zinc. Moreover, the use of high quality materials, including stone, resulted in a high level of sustainability with low maintenance requirements as the building matures.Save this picture!© Revelateur StudioThe Mechanical System includes Geothermal cooling and heating as well as central boiler for in-floor heating and domestic hot water. To add to the home’s energy efficiency, the windows respond to their exposure (ie, north is different than south), deep overhangs provide passive shading, heat is provided through in-slab piping, and double stud exterior walls allow for continuous insulation. The Electrical System is comprised of LED lighting with solar panels on the roof of the nearby accessory building. Structurally, the foundation and the basement are in concrete with a post tensioned concrete beam at the main level; wood stud structure frames the main level with Douglas fir beams and tongue and groove decking on a concealed steel frame forming the main central volume. In addition to the wood, limestone (from quarries near Owen Sound) is used throughout the project as cladding, exterior hardscaping, interior tile flooring, and surround the real wood burning fireplace. Dark grey zinc flashings and wall panels give the building a polished, sophisticated appearance.Save this picture!© Revelateur StudioThe team, at Toms + McNally Design, collaborates with their clients to creatively respond to their project and its unique characteristics. They see problems as opportunities, combining context, space, and a respect of materiality and environment to create enduring architecture. For this project, they provided Construction Management services as well as design. This approach allowed for a high level of finish and control of the finished product. Millgrove House is a globally-impressive architecture that intentionally appears to have stemmed from its context, in Hamilton Ontario, into a home for a growing family.

Immigrants and their advocates have waited for years for Washington to create a humane pro-worker policy that would provide some relief for the more than 12 million undocumented workers in this country. But instead of relief, conditions for migrants continue to deteriorate — not only on the U.S. side of the border, but as workers make their way into this country as well.No talk on Capitol Hill about immigration reform has dealt with the root causes of migration, which is decisive for real change. None of the thousands of pieces of paper on immigration policy addresses unfair trade policies, such as NAFTA (North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement), or the U.S.-created violence that sweeps Mexico and Central America.President Barack Obama announced in November the creation of a program that would allow undocumented parents of children born in the U.S. to obtain temporary work permits so they could stay here with their citizen children. The Obama administration had also planned to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy of 2012 (DACA) that offers relief and work permits to undocumented youth who came here as children.However, these measures have hit a legal stalemate because 26 states, led by Texas, are suing the Obama administration, seeking to stop executive actions signed by the president in November that could grant some relief for a sector of undocumented workers. This lawsuit, filed last December, contends that President Obama overstepped his constitutional authority by issuing executive actions that amount to a form of amnesty and that the Department of Homeland Security does not have the authority to grant work permits.The 26 states behind the lawsuit are claiming a violation of states’ rights — a right-wing, racist tactic rooted in the history of slavery in the U.S. South. The 26 include 13 states in the Deep South and Southwest.In the legal battle between the Obama administration and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, migrant workers are no more than pawns. Oral arguments were heard on the case on July 10 by the court that is seen as one of the most conservative in the country.The online magazine Politico reported on July 10: “President Barack Obama appears likely to lose — again — in the protracted legal fight over his executive actions on immigration. The chilly reception from the three-judge panel in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on whether Obama had legal authority to take such action seems to indicate that a lower court decision blocking the new programs would stay in place.”Build a united movementTo the movement’s credit, hundreds of migrants and their supporters converged in Louisiana for a spirited demonstration outside the court. Additionally, the New Orleans Workers Center for Racial Justice blocked roads outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in a massive civil disobedience action that included many undocumented workers.Despite right-wing bluster against the November executive action, Washington’s war on migrants continues in every way. Obama has deported more workers than any other U.S. president. The current executive action is way too little and way too late. It amounts to posturing more than anything else as the Democrats gear up for the 2016 presidential election.The fact that the conditions for forced migration continue means that no matter what difficulties workers face once in the U.S., they have no other option but to leave their homelands. What undocumented workers need above all is a united movement of workers in this country that is fighting for the interests of workers and oppressed people.A united movement with the Black Lives Matter movement front and center — which raises all the issues vital to the working class — can help to resolve the grave humanitarian crisis that has become a reality for migrant workers. The solidarity of U.S.-born workers with those born outside the U.S. is the first step.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Using the standards that the corporate media applied to the Syrian/Russian retaking of Aleppo last December, the U.S. and its coalition are guilty of war crimes for their actions during the ongoing assault on Mosul in Iraq that began last October. Only this time the media reports are quieter.The Pentagon boasts that its bombings avoid civilian casualties. On March 17, however, the New York Times admits that air strikes hit a building “in which scores if not hundreds of civilians were killed, according to Iraqi witnesses.” (April 1)According to the same article, “Airwars, a nongovernmental organization that monitors reports of civilian casualties in international airstrikes, has asserted that at least 2,831 civilians are likely to have been killed as of March 28 by the coalition’s air attacks since August 2014.” The Pentagon put this figure at 229, not counting this just past March.An Associated Press article on April 1 quotes Bashar Abdullah, a resident of the neighborhood known as New Mosul, who lost more than a dozen family members in the March 17 attack: “How could they have used this much artillery on civilian locations? Iraqi and American forces both assured us that it will be an easy battle, that’s why people didn’t leave their houses. They felt safe.”These bombings that kill civilians can only increase now that the Donald Trump administration has turned over combat decisions to the military leaders in the field.It is also likely that there will be more casualties among U.S. troops. “The Pentagon said that officially there are 5,262 U.S. troops in Iraq even as officials privately acknowledge at least a couple thousand more there.” (AP, April 1)When the Syrian army retook Aleppo last December, the city’s inhabitants greeted the soldiers as liberators from the Islamic State group and the other sectarian militias, such as the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army.The population of Mosul, which IS has repressed, also has been persecuted by the Baghdad government. Ever since the U.S. purposely exacerbated sectarian rivalry between Shiite and Sunni communities in Iraq — as a tool to “divide and conquer” the Iraqi resistance to U.S. occupation — the mostly Sunni city has been targeted by sectarian militias.In London on April 1, a group of exiled Iraqi women held a vigil opposite 10 Downing Street, the residence of the British prime minister, to protest the bombing and killing of civilians in Mosul city, according to a report by Iraqi author Haifa Zangana.The ongoing U.S.-led coalition’s war crimes against Mosul are an extension of the imperialist war against Iraq that began with the 1991 bombing of the country’s infrastructure, a 12-year-long blockade and sanctions policy, and the 2003 invasion that lasted until 2011 and now has been extended by the return of U.S. troops. This aggression has killed more than 2 million Iraqis and displaced many millions more.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
