Murray Energy, after bankruptcy filing, seeks a way out of export-terminal commitment

first_imgMurray Energy, after bankruptcy filing, seeks a way out of export-terminal commitment FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Market Intelligence/Platts:Murray Energy has asked a bankruptcy court to allow it to reject a contract with a marine terminal in Louisiana that facilitates exporting the company’s coal abroad. Murray Energy, which filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition Tuesday, said challenging river conditions along the Mississippi River increased costs and caused use of the Convent Marine Terminal to become “completely uneconomical.” In addition to a decline in domestic coal markets, Murray Energy and other coal producers have struggled as export demand for US coal retreated significantly in recent months. The contract is no longer necessary to efficiently operate the company, Murray Energy wrote. Negotiations with counterparty Raven Energy LLC would not likely be productive, Murray Energy added. Raven Energy is a subsidiary of SunCoke Energy. Reduced coal production capacity out of the Illinois Basin, including the idling of some of Murray Energy’s operations, has also eliminated the need for services under the contract, the company wrote in a filing with the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The company added that the Convent Marine Terminal has operated below full capacity in 2019, limiting export opportunities for coal. The contract included a take-or-pay volume commitment that required Murray Energy to sell 5 million st of coal through the Convent Marine Terminal each year. The contract’s initial term goes through 2023.More: Murray Energy asks court to reject export contract with Convent Marine Terminallast_img read more

FIFA says fans will be able to see how much agents earn from transfer deals | Football News

first_imgThe regulations will include a licensing system, character tests, commission caps and the publication by FIFA of the money agents receive from their clients – both players and clubs.It will also prohibit conflicts of interest, such as club or national association officials owning stakes in player agencies.Agents will be consulted between now and the spring of 2021, and they will all receive the draft regulations and be asked for feedback.- Advertisement – Football fans will be able to see exactly how much agents earn from transfer deals when new regulations come into force next year, FIFA has said.The world governing body has begun a third round of consultation on the new regulations, after admitting it had been a “mistake” by the old FIFA regime to deregulate agents in 2015.- Advertisement – The regulations will then go forward for FIFA Council approval between March and June next year, before coming into force in September.The rules eliminate triple representation – where an agent represents the player, the buyer and the seller – and also place a ban on dual representation, except where the agent represents the player and the buying club.FIFA has acted to stop what it sees as “excessive and abusive” practices among agents.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Commission will be capped at three per cent of a player’s salary when representing a player, three per cent of a player’s salary when representing the buyer, and six per cent when the same agent represents both the player and the buyer.An agent representing a selling club can earn a maximum of 10 per cent of the transfer value.Ultimately, FIFA intends that these commissions will not be paid directly from a client to an agent, but instead go through a clearing house system.last_img read more

Spain virus death count ‘may be thousands short’

first_imgSpain’s coronavirus death toll soared past 19,000 on Thursday with another 551 deaths, but questions over the counting method have raised some regional concerns the real figure is much higher.After nearly five weeks of confinement, the rise in deaths and infections has slowed over the past fortnight, with the overnight fatalities taking the toll to 19,130. But regional authorities in Madrid and Catalonia said they each had thousands more victims than the official count.  In Catalonia, where 3,855 people have died, the real number could be higher than 7,000 — prompting the regional government to announce changes to its counting method.  Deaths outside of hospital”Until now, the official figures were supplied by Catalan hospitals counting people who died there,” it said in a statement late on Wednesday. “But as of today.. figures on deaths at (old people’s) residences and homes throughout Catalonia will also be collected following an order to funeral services to provide this information,” it said, giving a new figure of 7,097. The funeral homes based their numbers on a count of those who died with COVID-19 and others who died while showing symptoms compatible with infection without having being tested, the Catalan government said. But Simon said it was important to verify whether or not those victims “had tested positive or not”.Among the latest wave of victims was best-selling Chilean writer Luis Sepulveda, who died at a hospital in the northern city of Oviedo, his publishing house said. Spain also recorded 5,183 new cases of COVID-19, taking the overall figure to 182,816 — officially second highest in the world behind the United States.Spanish officials say the virus has steadied since a daily toll of 950 was recorded on April 2 but they have insisted on maintaining the March 14 lockdown that is likely to be extended into mid-May. One of the tightest lockdowns in Europe, the restrictions allow just essential workers out, otherwise the rest of the population can only leave home to buy food and medicine, to attend a medical emergency or to briefly walk the dog. “The real number of deaths is difficult to know,” said Fernando Simon, the health ministry’s emergencies coordinator.The daily figure was compiled from information provided by regional authorities concerning deaths among patients who “had tested positive for coronavirus”, he said. Between them, Madrid and Catalonia account for 56 percent of the national toll, but some officials say the numbers are flawed for not including all those who have died outside of hospital.Madrid has counted 6,877 deaths but on Wednesday a top official said the true figure was likely to be more than 10,000.

Salah double keeps Liverpool on track for record points-haul

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Mohamed Salah scored twice as champions Liverpool moved on to 92 points with a 3-1 win at Brighton and Hove Albion in the English Premier League on Wednesday.Juergen Klopp’s side were 2-0 up within eight minutes after Brighton paid heavily for sloppy work in their attempt to play the ball out from the back. Naby Keita robbed Davy Propper and slipped the ball to Salah who confidently drove home to open the scoring in the sixth minute.Two minutes later and Brighton were caught out again by Liverpool’s pressing, this time Salah setting up Jordan Henderson who finished with a perfect drive.Graham Potter’s team pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time, with Leandro Trossard sweeping home a first-time shot after a pinpoint cross from Tariq Lamptey.Brighton, who recovered well from their poor start, should have drawn level on the hour when the ball fell to an unattended Dan Burn at the back post.But he failed to test Alisson with a poor connection. Egyptian Salah wrapped up the win, Liverpool’s 30th in their 34th game of the season, with a superbly-angled near-post header from an in-swinging Andy Robertson corner.Liverpool need nine points from their remaining four games to secure the highest points total in a Premier League season.The current record was set by Manchester City, who amassed 100 points in 2017/2018.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Jurgen KloppLiverpoolManchester CityMohamed SalahPremier Leaguelast_img read more

Men’s soccer moves on over UWM, 1-0

first_imgThe year was 1995, stores opened at a reasonable time for black Friday, OJ was acquitted and the University of Wisconsin Men’s Soccer team won the National Championship with a 2-0 victory over Duke.That was the last time the Badgers made the NCAA tournament. However, 18 years later the Badgers continued their legacy in the tournament and beat Wisconsin-Milwaukee 1-0 in the first round of the NCAA playoffs.The win would extend the Badgers home unbeaten streak to 14 games, a streak that started with a tough 2-0 loss to Milwaukee in October of last season. The Badgers used the opportunity to exact their revenge on their in-state foes.The last time the two teams played was Oct. 23 when they fought for a 1-1 double overtime draw in Milwaukee. However this game would not be allowed to end in a tie as the winning team would move on to face Notre Dame in the second round of the NCAA tournament.The rivalry brought a huge crowd. Nearly 1,500 people crammed into the McClimon Complex to see the 11th ranked Badgers extend their home unbeaten streak. The line for tickets went up and around the corner of the stadium as fans young and old waited for their chance to witness the first ever all-Wisconsin NCAA tournament game.“That’s something that can be easily over looked,” Trask said. “It’s a big day for Wisconsin. There has never been a Wisconsin versus Wisconsin NCAA tournament matchup. To see all three of us (Wisconsin, UWM and Marquette) in the tournament is pretty special.”Student attendance was even higher than expected after head coach John Trask purchased student tickets for the first 100 UW students to arrive at the game.“If I made a little bit more money I would have bought a few more,” Trask said with a smile. “I didn’t want kids that really wanted to be here to miss it, I mean to students four dollars is a sandwich, it’s lunch for college students. I’ll tell you what if we are here next year I will double that number, I promise you.”The crowd erupted in the 13th minute when the Badgers struck first. Nick Janus found Chris Prince in the middle of the box. Prince carefully placed the ball past Milwaukee goalkeeper Liam Anderson and into the net notching the Badgers go-ahead goal.As the second half wound down the Badgers had another good chance at goal. Tomislav Zadro took the ball down the middle of the field before playing it off to Janus, who was open at the top of the box. Janus drilled a shot into the chest of a charging Anderson who was able to make the save.Flurries began to fly in typical Wisconsin fashion as the first half came to a close. Along with the flurries, Milwaukee unleashed a flurry of attacks on the Wisconsin defense in the second half as they tried to overcome the 1-0 deficit.“They had to throw it all at us,” Junior AJ Cochran said. “They had 45 minutes to save one heck of a season. You could tell they were fighting for it in the second half, we just had to hold on and battle.”The Badgers fought off multiple Milwaukee attacks by dominating their own box in the air. Cochran, an all-Big Ten selection is one of the most dominant players in the air in the country and was able to help clear the ball on nearly every Panthers possession.“It’s so nice, you know every time you hear him call the ball he is gonna get a head on it,” senior goalkeeper Max Jentsch said. “He’s just an incredible player in the air.”And hold on they did. Despite the Panthers putting up a valiant effort, UWM found themselves down 1-0 still with six minutes remaining in their season. UWM picked up the pace as the Badgers tried to slow the game down. Sophomore Drew Conner drew two fouls in the closing minutes to help burn some time, and junior Jacob Brindle fired the ball into the air as time expired on the Badgers final home win of the season.Fans flooded the field as the announcer reminded the crowd that fans were not permitted on the field after the game, but that didn’t stop the nearly 400 students from taking the field to congratulate their fellow badgers on the first NCAA tournament win in nearly two decades.Trask was reflective after the game when asked what the win means for Wisconsin soccer going forward.“It’s huge for Wisconsin soccer. Not just this school but all of the schools in the state. I think you’re gonna see a rivalry between us and Milwaukee develop as we go forward. Kris Kelderman and his guys do a great job.”The road doesn’t get any easier for the Badgers. On Sunday, Wisconsin will take on second-ranked Notre Dame at 7 P.M. in South Bend.“We are going to go play the second-ranked team in the country,” Trask said. “They have one loss on the season. They are a tremendous program. We are going to go there and hopefully bring it our best stuff and give it a go.”With the game looming in the near future, the Badgers have a quick turnaround before they have to take on one of the best programs in the country, a tall order but this Wisconsin team is not known for going down without a fight.last_img read more
