Sir John will take the job in May when sitting chairman Willy Strothotte, who has also chaired Glencore since 1994, leaves the role. Xstrata has surprised some investors by choosing a successor before Glencore, which owns a 34 per cent stake in Xstrata, publicly announces its much talked about initial public offering. It was expected that Strothotte would then step down from Xstrata under UK corporate governance rules requiring an independent board. Analysts at JP Morgan Cazenove said replacing Strothotte with an independent chairman clears a conflict of interest ahead of Glencore’s float. But the move could also be viewed as a precursor to a merger between Xstrata and Glencore even if the latter decides to go public. Xstrata chief executive Mick Davis told analysts last month it was “unsustainable in the longer term” for both Xstrata and Glencore to trade as public companies, according to an analyst note from HSBC released yesterday. There have previously been reports that Davis would chair a combined company if Glencore did move to merge, leaving both Strothotte and Bond out of the chairmanship.

Lions 2013: NSW Waratahs 17-47 Lions

first_imgCentre of attention: Jonathan Davies stood out in the Lions’ five-try win over the WaratahsBy Sarah Mockford at Allianz Stadium in SydneyIn a nutshellThe Lions produced their most complete performance of the tour to date, but it did come at a cost – Jamie Roberts limping off with what looked like a hamstring strain. The tourists started with a huge intensity and were rewarded with an early try from Johnny Sexton. The Waratahs clearly targeted the Lions half-backs, but they stood up well to that pressure, the backs clicked excellently, the forwards impressed at the set-piece and the all-round physicality was of the highest level.The big concern for the Lions – other than Roberts’s injury – was a few flaws in defence. They were exposed out wide a number of times, Leigh Halfpenny coming to the rescue when Sean Maitland was caught out of position, and the same happened when Simon Zebo rushed up in the second half. They need to address these issues before the opening Test against the Wallabies in Brisbane in a week.Key momentLeigh Halfpenny’s try just before the break. The Lions had been under the cosh at the opposite end of the pitch with Drew Mitchell causing problems, but they regrouped for the final minutes of the half, produced decent phase play and Halfpenny was on hand to make the most of the overlap out wide.Star man – Jonathan DaviesThe Welshman may have come on this tour in the shadow of Brian O’Driscoll, but he’s now secured his Test spot. He was superb throughout this game, running hard and straight, defending strongly and providing numerous try-scoring passes. The big question now is who will he line up with in midfield?Class act: Paul O’ConnellTest watch – HotLeigh Halfpenny – He could easily have been the star man with his points haul of 30. He attacked the line far more often than he does for Wales and with great effect, while his value in defence also came to the fore. Nailed-on Test starter – and the Wallabies will be wary of the distance from which he can slot penalties.Paul O’Connell – Immense work-rate, popping up all over the pitch, linked well and solid at the set-piece too. An injury doubt a few months ago, he’s now in the Lions’ engine room for the Tests. Alun Wyn Jones – Like his second-row colleague, he made a huge contribution. He stood out for his physicality and made a good few carries with ball in hand.Sam Warburton – There was no flashy stuff from the Lions captain, but the sheer amount of hard graft he puts in during a match was evident. Solid, physical and he’s proved his match fitness at a perfect time before the first Test.Test watch – NotSean Maitland – Had an opportunity to push for a Test spot but caught out too often in defence. The Lions coaches won’t want to risk that against the Wallabies.Jamie Heaslip – This is a little harsh on the Irishman but the fact he let the ball spurt out at a scrum in the Waratahs’ 22 could count against him in his battle for the No 8 spot with Toby Faletau.StatsThe Lions made 11 clean breaks to the Waratahs’ four.Sam Warburton was the Lions’ top tackler with 12, while Jonathan Davies clocked up a handy 115 metres.Scorers Waratahs – Tries: Carter 2. Cons: McKibbin 2. Pen: McKibbin.Lions – Tries: Sexton, Halfpenny 2, Croft, Davies. Cons: Halfpenny 4, Farrell. Pens: Halfpenny 4.

The tiles that make the façade are also part of the interior, in the bathrooms. For the backsplash of the kitchen counters, we had three-dimensional tiles produced whose color was tuned by the painting of the walls. The floors are made in Riga wood and the cabinets in acer plywood.

first_imgHR developing into strategic player in the USOn 3 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today The US HR profession is maturing into a strategic organisational role byaligning itself with business aims, according to a new study. A report by the US-based Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM),designed to provide an occupational snapshot of HR as its practitioners view ittoday, shows that HR’s business value in the US is increasing.

Susan Meisinger, president and chief executive of SHRM, said the businessvalue HR professionals contribute to their organisations is growing as morebusiness leaders recognise the power of effective people management. “HR professionals are capable of leveraging human capital,strengthening organisations and improving the bottom line,” she said. “The voice of the HR professional is an important one.” www.shrm.org Comments are closed.

RFA Argus completes overhaul after Ebola mission

first_img Authorities Share this article RFA Argus. Photo: Royal NavyUK’s Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship Argus on March 25 departed the Falmouth dock after undergoing a year-long overhaul at A&P’s shipyard.Prior to the overhaul, the 28,000-tonne support ship supported efforts to curb the spread of Ebola in West Africa.During her 172 days in support of Operation Gritrock – the codename for the British military’s response to the disease’s outbreak in Sierra Leone – Argus served as the base for Merlin helicopters to ferry medicine, food and supplies around the country, both to our forces on the ground treating the local populace, and for people in isolated or cut-off communities.In addition, her medical facilities were available to treat any British personnel taken ill.According to the Royal Navy, cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone dropped tenfold while Argus was deployed.Capt David Eagles, RFA Argus’ Commanding Officer, said: “Argus was deployed for six months, during which time she was only alongside for 12 hours.”“This remarkable endurance is testament to the high quality work carried out at A&P Falmouth in maintaining the Royal Navy’s primary casualty receiving facility.”Before Argus left the jetty to begin trials A&P’s Steve Wheeler and Simon Timmins presented Capt Eagles with a print of the ship returning from her Ebola mission.
