Belgacom will legally change its name to Proximus later this month, having grouped all products and services under the commercial brand in September.Belgacom said that it is speeding up its Proximus rebrand after witnessing positive customer response to the name. The company will be known as Proximus SA under public law effective June 22. Its stockmarket ticker symbol will become PROX instead of BELG from June 19.“In the days and weeks following the commercial rebranding, the response from customers, suppliers, stakeholders, investors and employees was unanimously positive,” said Belgacom in a statement.“That is why the decision was taken to speed up the rebranding of Belgacom SA under public law to Proximus SA under public law. At the same time this also simplifies communication.”Belgacom’s general assembly first decided to change the company name under public law to Proximus SA on 15 April 2015.
Sponsor Advertisement Reader Scott Pluschau has another blog posted on his website. This one is entitled “Gold is Coming to a Fork in the Road”…and the link is here.I have the usual number of stories for a mid-week column, so I hope you have the chance to read the ones that interest you.The banker must at all times conduct himself so as to justify the confidence of his clients in him. – J.P. Morgan Jr.It’s absolutely amazing how blatant the price management scheme in the precious metals is becoming. Even I was taken aback by how brazen JPMorgan et al were during the Comex trading session yesterday. They made no attempt to hide behind any sort of dollar rally, as they just sent in their high-frequency traders and ‘did the dirty’ in broad daylight in front of everyone.Of course the CFTC, CME…and the precious metal companies you own shares in…will do precisely nothing. They’ll just stand there as the usually do and watch while the public and the shareholders get raped again.How low we got from here, remains to be seen. But it’s entirely possible that we’ve already seen the lows, as there’s a limit to the number of short positions that the technical funds and small traders are prepared to sell…and when that point is reached, that will be the low.Here’s the 2-year gold chart.(Click on image to enlarge)I would be really surprised if they can get the price much lower than approximately $1,540 the ounce, as that seems to be a bottom-of-the-barrel price that goes all the way back to late September 2011…as every engineered price decline since then has never gone much lower than that…and if it has, it’s only lasted for a matter of hours, or maybe minutes. And if they do get it lower than that, it won’t gain them a lot of contracts, as we’re already pretty much all sold out to the downside right now.As an aside, if you lost money in MF Global…or with Bernie Madoff…or the new debacle over at PFGBest…I sort of feel sorry for you…with the emphasis on ‘sort of’. You should know better…and I hope you’ve learned your lesson by now. There appears to be little or no protection for you in the options and futures market if something goes sideways. So forget leverage…just buy the physical metal and sit tight.In overnight trading, all precious metals rallied in fits and starts during the Far East trading session on their Wednesday…and now that London has been open for a couple of hours, gold is up about twelve bucks…and silver is up just under 30 cents. Volume in both, as of 5:04 a.m. Eastern time is already pretty chunky, so it’s obvious that these rally attempts are not going unopposed. The dollar index has been declining all night long…and is currently down about 20 basis points, with most of that drop coming since the open of London trading earlier this morning.That’s all for today…and I’ll see you on Thursday…Friday west of the International Date Line. Aben Resources (TSX.V: ABN) is a Canadian gold and silver exploration company with a focus on developing properties in the Yukon. The Company’s flagship project is its 100% owned Justin Gold Project located 35 kilometres southeast of the Cantung Mine and has an all season road running through its claims. A phase one drill program was carried out in 2011 on the 18,314 acre Justin Project in which a significant new greenfields gold discovery was made at the property’s POW Zone. The Company intercepted 60 metres of 1.19 g/t gold in hole JN11009 at a vertical depth of 113 metres. Additionally, a new high grade silver-copper zone was discovered at the Kangas Zone with hole JN11003 returning 1.07 metres of 7320 g/t silver (234 oz/ton) and 3.52% copper near surface. As a result of these discoveries on the Justin Project, Aben acquired 14,274 additional acres of mineral tenure in the immediate vicinity of the project to facilitate a more aggressive work program this upcoming season. The Company has four other prospective Yukon and NWT projects in its portfolio along with a seasoned management and geological team. Aben’s chairman, Ron Netolitzky, is credited with exploration success on numerous properties including three Western Canadian gold and silver projects which became producing mines.

It’s absolutely amazing how blatant the price management scheme in the precious metals is becoming.The gold price traded flat on very light volume through the entire Far East trading day on Tuesday, but as I mentioned in ‘The Wrap’ yesterday, that all ended shortly after 9:00 a.m. in London.The rally that began at that point ended just minutes after 9:00 a.m. in New York when it broke through the $1,600 spot price. Gold’s high price tick…$1,603.00 spot…occurred at that point. Then ‘da boyz’ let loose their high-frequency traders…and by the time that the low price tick for gold occurred, gold was down to $1,563.70 spot…and intra-day move of almost forty bucks. The low came at 2:45 p.m. in electronic trading…and then traded sideways into the 5:15 p.m. New York close.Gold closed the Tuesday trading session at $1,566.50 spot…down $20.80 from Monday’s close. For such a price move, net volume wasn’t overly heavy…125,000 contracts, give or take. Hopefully all of the volume associated with the price decline up until the 1:30 p.m. Eastern time Comex close, will be in Friday’s Commitment of Traders Report.It was pretty much the same price action in silver, although the high tick of the day, somewhere north of $27.60 spot, occurred within a one hour time period around the London silver fix at noon local time.Silver’s secondary high occurred just minutes after the 9:00 a.m. Eastern time mark in New York…and then silver [along with platinum and palladium] suffered the same fate as gold, with the low tick [$26.66 spot] coming around the 2:35 price mark in electronic trading. From that point, silver also trade flat into the close.Silver closed at $26.81 spot…down 53 cents on the day…but had an intraday price move of just over a dollar. Considering the hit that silver took, the net volume was a rather subdued 30,000 contracts.The dollar index rallied about 15 basis points from its Tuesday open…with the Far East high coming around 2:00 p.m. Hong Kong time. From that point, it rolled over pretty hard, hitting its low of the day [82.98] about 8:30 a.m. local time in London. But from there, the dollar index rallied strongly, hitting its high tick [83.47] about 11:15 a.m. in New York.From its zenith, the dollar index slipped back about 10 basis points or so…and then traded flat into the close…finishing the Tuesday trading session around 83.40.It should have been obvious to any impartial observer of the dollar index, that it played no meaningful roll either before nor during the engineered price decline in all the precious metals yesterday.The gold stocks gapped down a bit at the open of the equity markets…and then followed the gold price lower all day long…with the low tick coming in the last half-hour of the New York trading day. The HUI finished down 2.89%. I thank reader Scott Pluschau for providing today’s chart once again, as the good folks over at yahoo.com still haven’t done a thing with their HUI chart problem.(Click on image to enlarge)All the silver stocks got it in the neck again yesterday…and Nick Laird’s Silver Sentiment Index closed down a whopping 4.41%.(Click on image to enlarge)Well, the CME’s Daily Delivery Report was another yawner…as only 3 gold and 7 silver contracts were posted for delivery on Thursday. But there are still 1,791 silver contracts open in July…and one has to wonder how many of these long/stoppers will stand for delivery, and who the big short/issuers will be that will be forced to deliver the physical metal itself. The friendly bet I have with myself is Jefferies, but it isn’t big money.The GLD ETF reported that an authorized participant[s] withdrew 135,830 troy ounces of gold yesterday…and there were no changes in SLV.There was no sales report from the U.S. Mint.The Comex-approved depositories did not receive any silver on Monday…but Scotia Mocatta shipped 996,615 troy ounces of the stuff out the door…and the link to that action is here.The July Bank Participation Report didn’t show much change from the June report. The data for this report was taken from last Friday’s Commitment of Traders Report. In gold, it showed that 4 U.S. banks are net short 75,895 Comex Futures contracts…and the 19 non-U.S. that hold Comex futures contracts are net short another 49,949 contracts. Both the U.S and non-U.S. bank categories increased their net short position by about 5,000 Comex contracts from the June report…10,000 contracts in total.The four 4 U.S. banks are net short 7.59 million ounces of gold…and the 19 non-U.S. banks are net short an additional 4.99 million ounces. From last Friday’s COT report, the Commercial net short position was reported as 16.66 million ounces…so these 23 banks hold 75.5% of the entire Commercial net short position in gold.In silver, it’s an entirely different story, as it has been since JPMorgan took over Bear Stearns short position in silver back in the spring of 2008.Four  U.S. Banks are net short 18,272 Comex silver contracts…an insignificant decline of 600 contracts from their June position. I’d bet serious coin that about 80% of this amount is held by JPMorgan…and 19.99% is held by HSBC USA. The other 0.01 percent is held by Citigroup and one other bank…but are immaterial, regardless.The 11 non-U.S. banks that hold Comex silver contracts are net long 904 contracts…a minor drop of about 300 contracts from the June BPR.The net Commercial short position in silver in last Friday’s COT report was 17,354 Comex contracts. JPMorgan and HSBC hold over 100% of that amount in silver all by themselves. And as I pointed out in the previous paragraph, the 11 non-U.S. banks are actually net long the silver market.This is not rocket science, dear reader, as the silver price management scheme is obviously 100% ‘Made in America’. And with 4 U.S. banks holding just about 50% of the Commercial net short position in gold, they are a powerful force to be reckoned with in gold as well…especially since they collude in this price fixing scheme. When I say “JPMorgan et al“…or ‘da boyz’…that’s who I’m referring to. Most of the ‘et al‘s are not U.S. banks…but other Commercial traders that work together with JPMorgan.This is precisely the same way that the LIBOR scandal works/worked. I would guess that a lot of other markets work that was as well…and the dollar index and the New York equity markets would be two others that fall into that category.As GATA’s Chris Powell said…”The are no markets anymore…only interventions.”Of course, since the cut-off for both the BPR and COT reports from last Tuesday’s 1:30 p.m. Eastern time Comex close, the engineered price decline in all precious metals has changed both reports dramatically…and as Ted Butler so quaintly pointed out…both reports are now very much “yesterday’s news”.Here are two charts courtesy of Washington state reader S.A. that he borrowed from Monday’s edition of Casey’s Daily Dispatch…which is linked here. Both are self-explanatory…and neither of them require any further embellishment from me.
Lots of people have silver and gold, which are always good. Shuttered fire departments. The rulers won’t close too many police stations, since they want to retain their image as saviors and because they need people to fear them, but fire departments and other things may be let go. (The scarier things first.) But again, so long as we can communicate and adapt, we can just arrange for necessary services in different ways. Remember, most of us are blowing 20-30 hours per week on TV – we have WAY more free time than we think we do. War. This is the traditional distraction from disappointments and government failures. Syria seems to be the leading candidate at the moment, or perhaps North Korea or some other distant monster will fit the bill. The solution to this one is very simple: Do it anyway. Whatever you think of your local government, I very much doubt that you think they have a right to starve you – which is what failing to act in your own survival comes out to. If it’s moral, do it. Stop waiting for permission. So, while the big collapse (assuming that it does come) will be terrifying to inveterate TV watchers, the reality will be far less apocalyptic than promised… assuming that we productive people act like producers. And as producers, we have so much more choice than the others. Indeed, in one way, we could see the collapse as an opportunity to start fresh. The future will be better if we ultimately say so. Paul Rosenberg FreemansPerspective.com They must be able to communicate with each other. Yes, we’ve all seen scary post-apocalyptic films like Mad Max, or TV shows like Jericho. A real collapse, however, will be quite different from such dramas. And beyond that, there’s a good chance the future will be better. From where I now live, you could draw a 25 mile arc which would include competent people of almost any imaginable specialty: The guys who know how to build and repair refrigerators, machines of all types, cars and roads and houses and windows and computers and a thousand other things. So, I’m not overly worried about the dollar going to zero – as long as these guys have two critical things: Welfare riots. This is possible, and even probable in some places, presuming that government checks either stop, or no longer matter due to massive inflation. However, we all know which areas are likely to be hit and we can avoid them. (If you’re in one, do something about it now.) And, as horrifying as such a thing may be (and should be!), Americans, Canadians and a serious number of Europeans do have guns, and will eventually shoot rioters as they are beating down their neighbor’s door. This one is actually easy. The solution is mesh networks. (You can find a nice PDF primer here.) These are local networks, built with simple wifi devices. These, combined with a few longer links, can create a very nice communications network. You won’t be able to use it for videos, but it will work well for basic communications. (Though you really should keep a small electric generator and some gas.) No credit. As scary as this seems to some people, the reality won’t be nearly as debilitating as imagined (except for the mega-corps); people will adapt and go back to a 19th century way of buying and selling. Adjustment will be required, but farmers will still need to sell their food, and they will find ways for productive people to pay them. Fear. Scaring the populace will be the first and essential tool of the rulers. Government relies far more on legitimacy than on force, so the rulers will be very keen on using their number one tool to keep people clustering around them for safety. That’s a primary strategy for them. The Future Will Be Better if We Take Care of THESE TWO BIG RISKS There are very simple solutions to our two crucial issues. But remember, simple isn’t always easy. Here are the solutions: They must be able to communicate with each other. Supply chain disruptions. Since the big corporations are so tightly associated with governments, they will not likely adapt as quickly as small companies do. They may lock-up while waiting for instructions. This is why stores of key commodities (like food) and communication will be necessary. They must be left alone, with no one telling them “you can’t do that without our permission.” We have Bitcoin, which is good currency world-wide. Lack of currency. Dollars will fail in this scenario (along with Euros, Pounds, etc.), but there will be not be a debilitating lack of currency, for two reasons: They must be left alone, with no one telling them “you can’t do that without our permission.” If either one of these two things are missing, we’re screwed, but as long as we have them, we’ll be okay. Sure, there will be some bad days, a few tragedies, and a surfeit of terror from the fear factories (that is, the mainstream media), but in general, we productive people will be okay. I knew men who ran a business through the Great Depression, in precisely my specialties (contracting and engineering). We discussed the difficulties they faced and how they coped with them. They worked through the depression end to end, and did some pretty impressive projects – with absolutely no credit available anywhere. They paid for things creatively – in sections, with barter, and on trust – but they also got the job done, from the beginning of the depression to the end. Our period of difficulty (which most of us presume will be coming somehow or another) will be different from the Great Depression, but so long as we retain the two items mentioned above – and I will tell you precisely how we can keep them below – we’ll get through it. The Bad Stuff Okay, so if we have a complete dollar collapse, what can we expect? Here are a few thoughts:

But one individual quickly gained internet fame for a body part that isn’t usually associated with starfish: a shapely rear end. Twitter user @Babyshoujo recently photographed and tweeted an image of the “thicc” starfish as the animal clung to a rock in an exhibit at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. The sea star’s prominent derrière has captivated hundreds of thousands since the photo was shared on June 30. Quite a few commenters drew comparisons to the “SpongeBob SquarePants” starfish character Patrick Star, who often proudly displays his prominent, rounded bottom. However, experts were quick to point out that the “butt” isn’t quite what it seems.

Though sea stars are often referred to as starfish, they are not fish. They are echinoderms, the group that also includes sea cucumbers, sand dollars and sea urchins. And no, sea stars don’t have “butts”; they have a centrally located anus, but they don’t have human-like buttocks, as the cartoon Patrick Star does. What we’re seeing in the photo are the contracted muscles of the starfish’s arms as they grip the rock, Nate Jaros, curator of fish and invertebrates at the Aquarium of the Pacific, told USA Today. Because the sea star’s body is vertically aligned, gravity causes the creature’s internal structures to “slump,” and that produced the shapes resembling the human buttocks in the picture, Jaros explained. Previously, in March, social media users were intrigued by a similar illusion of thiccness in a white-faced saki monkey (Pithecia pithecia) in Finland’s Korkeasaari Zoo. The monkey, named Bea, appeared to be heavily muscled, her biceps as rounded as the sea star’s butt at the Pacific Aquarium. However, the so-called buff monkey’s bulk was really just fluffy fur, zoo representatives told Live Science.

COMMENTS ‘Rising imports, coal shortage are key challenges for the aluminium sector’ December 27, 2018 RELATED ‘India can meet 300 mtpa steel production target by 2030’ SHARE SHARE EMAIL There is no shortage of coal in Karnataka, according to Minister of Coal and Railways, Piyush Goyal.In a statement issued after a meeting with former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and Chief Minister of Karnataka HD Kumaraswamy, Goyal said there is no scarcity of coal in the State. He also said that the plants in Karnataka currently have, on an average, five days stock of coal which is equal to 2.24 lakh tonnes.Goyal hit out at the Karnataka government and hinted at mismanagement of coal stocks. “Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd. (KPCL) sold 584.91 million units of power at the energy exchange this year till October 2018. This amounts to consuming 3.8 lakh tonnes of coal which otherwise could have been used to boost coal stocks in power plants,” he said.“It is better that the plants maintained at least 20 days’ stock of coal for uninterrupted functioning,” he added. He pointed to the anticipated pick-up in the demand for power in February/March 2019 and asked the power plants to manage their inventory efficiently. Peak in demandHe said that transaction at energy exchanges should be done to take advantage of cheaper power right now to ensure better build up of coal stocks in thermal power plants. “This will help avoid purchase of power in February/March, when prices are expected to be higher due to peaking of demand,” he added. coal Published on SHARE COMMENT Piyush Goyal, Interim Finance Minister – BusinessLine
SHARE SHARE EMAIL February 11, 2019 Maxcure Hospitals, with 51 per cent equity investor, Medicover, the Sweden-based healthcare and diagnostic major, has charted a growth plan focussed on Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and the two Telugu states.The expansion, which began in 2017 with the dilution of 51 per cent for about Rs 320 crore from the holding company, Sahrudaya Healthcare Pvt Ltd, has already seen Maxcure rapidly scale up its presence from 200 beds in 2015 to 2,000 beds at present. It has 11 multi-speciality hospitals, mostly in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, said G Anil Krishna, Managing Director.A large part of the growth will be met with funds raised from the investor, internal accruals and, going forward, from debt says Anil, whose vision it is to take the group to the top five in the country’s healthcare sector by 2025. “We are betting big on Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh in the next three years. Navi Mumbai, Aurangabad, Nagpur, and later, Pune, are the prime locations”, he told BusinessLine.Maxcure, which began in 2014 in Hyderabad under the Sahrudaya Healthcare Group and soon took over Mediciti hospitals, has moved into Nashik with a 300-bedded facility and is close to completing a similar sized one in Navi Mumbai. The strategy would be to take high quality, affordable healthcare to tier-2 and 3 cities, he added.The turnover for fiscal 2017-18 was Rs 421 crore and it had done Rs 400 crore by January-end in the current fiscal. Its overall investments have also risen to Rs 500 crore. While each hospital will be a multi-speciality facility with the best medical, para medical and diagnostic care, at two places — Madhapur in Hyderabad and Nellore in Andhra Pradesh — exclusive oncology (cancer) facilities and treatment are also being established, he said.In addition, Medicover has diagnostic facilities in Bengaluru and Mysuru. It has announced its intention to expand its presence in fertility services too. After entering India in 2016 with an agreement to manage the operations of Medicover Fertility India, it has acquired the main shareholder, Medicover Healthcare, Delhi. It has since opened facilities in five cities, with the latest being in Hyderabad. Published on Growth plans to focus on Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh COMMENTS 0 SHARE COMMENT
