Agence France-Presse quoted a police spokesman as putting the toll from the attack at least 65 dead and 100 wounded. Saad Khaled, a cameraman working for the satellite TV station Al-Fayhaa, was among the seriously injured.The insurgent operation began in the early afternoon when gunmen wearing explosive vests seized control of the provincial council building in the city centre, taking advantage of the confusion result from a suicide bombing a few minutes earlier outside a nearby public building. A car bomb parked near the entrance of the council building went off 20 minutes later, just as security reinforcements were arriving.Al-Bazi, a freelance journalist who worked for Al-Arabiya, CNN, Reuters and other international media, was fatally injured by shrapnel from this blast. He had gone to cover a meeting taking place there.It is not clear exactly how Abdelwahad, who worked for Ayn (Eye Media Agency), died. The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory quoted Ayn as saying he was in permanent contact with the agency while in the building. “We lost contact at the moment of the assault by the security forces. We later learned that he was dead.”“We firmly condemn this indiscriminate slaughter in an operation deliberately targeting a public building,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We offer our condolences to the families of all the victims of this act of terrorism, including the two journalists. We urge the authorities to investigate this attack and bring those responsible to justice.”The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory paid tribute to Al-Bazi’s professional dedication and personal qualities. Aged 30, he was married and the father of three children. Abdelwahad, 39, had worked for Ayn for two years.

Ray tracing of electrostatic waves in a hot plasma and its application to the generation of terrestrial myriametric radiation

first_imgThe first results from the program HOTRAY for ray tracing electrostatic and electromagnetic waves in a hot plasma are presented. The calculations are applied to the linear mode‐conversion window theory for the generation of Terrestrial Myriametric Radiation corresponding to a specific event observed by the DE‐1 satellite. Results show that backward propagating electrostatic waves can refract in a density gradient normal to the magnetic field to become Z‐mode waves and can have access to the radio window. During propagation the waves remain minimally damped. Variations of approximately 0.01° in the initial wave normal angle ψ can result in a large difference in the transmitted wave intensities. However, if such variations do occur, waves from different locations can still access the radio window so that energy transfer to the conversion point remains efficient. Strong refraction of electrostatic waves at latitudes > 1° show that the magnetic equator is the preferred location for mode conversion to take place.last_img read more

PNG govt, ExxonMobil fail to reach consensus over P’nyang gas project

first_img PNG govt stops negotiations over the P’nyang gas project with ExxonMobil. (Credit: Pixabay/aymane jdidi) The Papua New Guinea (PNG) government said that it has stopped negotiations with US oil and gas firm ExxonMobil over the proposed P’nyang gas project in the country.The gas project calls for the development of the P’nyang gas field to help in the expansion of the ExxonMobil-operated $19bn PNG LNG project, which has been in production since 2014.However, the PNG government and ExxonMobil could not reach a consensus on the terms of the P’nyang gas agreement.PNG Prime Minister James Marape said that the US company was not willing to agree to “reasonable terms” with the government’s negotiators in supporting the development of the P’nyang natural gas field.Marape added that ExxonMobil proposed an ‘out-of-the-money’ deal for PNG and was not intending to make concessions in contrast to the government’s willingness. The government said that with the negotiations over the P’nyang gas project stopped, it can focus on developments that are already in the pipeline.PNG Prime Minister statement on the P’nyang gas projectJames Marape said: “The terms we proposed to Exxon Mobil were fair, ensuring PNG benefits from the project while the international oil companies made decent returns. Our proposals were rejected as these companies tried to extract even more profit for themselves.”The failed talks have now put doubts on the prospects of a $13bn plan of ExxonMobil, Total, and other partners in the Papua LNG project of doubling liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports in PNG by 2024, reported Reuters.In April 2019, Total and its partners ExxonMobil and Oil Search signed a gas agreement with the PNG government which defined the fiscal framework for the Papua LNG Project.The PNG government is reportedly seeking far better terms for the P’nyang gas project compared to the agreement it signed with Total for the Papua LNG project.Discussions on the P’nyang project were earlier put on hold in 2019 with the PNG government looking to revise Total’s agreement for the Papua LNG project. In September 2019, the Papua LNG project deal was endorsed by the government following certain concessions from Total.ExxonMobil’s partners in the proposed P’nyang gas project are Oil Search, Santos, JX Nippon, and Kumul Petroleum and Mineral Resources Development (MRDC).Oil Search stated: “It is unfortunate that, at this time, the stakeholders in P’nyang cannot agree on the appropriate balance of value and benefits for a Gas Agreement to be concluded.“Under the terms proposed by the State, the joint venture partners were unable to obtain a return on their investment that made the project investable and bankable. For Oil Search, the project returns under the State’s proposed terms were approximately the same as our cost of capital, on an unrisked basis.”The company said that it will continue talks with the PNG government on the P’nyang gas field project. The project calls for the development of the P’nyang gas field to help in the expansion of the ExxonMobil-operated $19bn PNG LNG projectlast_img read more

Recruitment firm to double in size

first_imgDeverell Smith, the specialist property recruitment consultancy, has announced plans to double in size over the next 12 months in response to soaring demand.From expansions and new start-ups to franchise roll-outs, the recent increase in housing market activity has led to a rise in the number of agencies looking to hire new members of staff to help deal with new business, and Deverell Smith has responded by announcing plans to recruit up to 70 new members of staff.Andrew Deverell-Smith (left), CEO, commented, “The market potential in property for recruitment is huge, we have expanded to provide recruitment services within every sector of the industry, and in some sectors, although we are market leaders, we really are still only scratching the surface.“By attracting the best talent in recruitment and knowledgeable property professionals to our company we plan to become the UK’s driving force in property recruitment.”Chris Long (right), Talent Development Director for Deverell Smith, has been tasked with recruiting and developing staff for the firm.Reflecting on the London-based company’s recruitment strategy, he said that it was important to not only attract but retain the best talent.He said, “Over the past twelve months we have carried out extensive research and invested heavily in our employment offering. We have worked hard to shape our culture to become a team based working environment where our employees not only want to come to work every day but are able to reach their full potential.“Maintaining a balanced work life balance was identified as the key factor for our employees’ wellbeing and happiness. In reaction to this we have restructured our remuneration and benefits package to include the most competitive commission offering in the industry, an extra four days holiday a year and contributions towards travel, leisure and childcare.”To help attract more talent, from a range of employment backgrounds, Deverell Smith has redefined its training programme, introducing a four week property recruitment training academy specifically designed for those making the transition into the sector.hiring staff jobs new staff recruitment firm Deverell Smith December 11, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
