RBC will refinance TCI UK Bail Out loan

first_img RBC Team off to Grand Turk with EZ Pay Related Items:royal bank of canada, uk tci bail out Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 Jan 2015 – Royal Bank of Canada, RBC is the bank the Government will go with to refinance that UK-backed bail-out loan of 2009. The Loan Refinancing Ordinance passed on December 17th and took effect the next day. The new law lays out the who, the how, the how much and the how long among other things of the bridge loan refinancing which will do away with the UK guaranteed loan of $170 million dollars. It is outlined in the ordinance that the loan with RBC cannot exceed $28 million dollars, must be repaid at the end of three and a half years, at a rate initially of 1.2% and that it will be repaid in fourteen equal installments of two million dollars every ninety days. It is explained that in order to keep that borrowing rate, the Turks and Caicos will have to maintain a BBB+ rating for at least the duration of the loan; if we lose ground there, it will cause a hike in the borrowing rate. This also means that if the TCI secures a better credit rating, then the rate of the loan will decrease. Included in that ordinance is that the TCI can repay the RBC Loan early without penalty and that the first payment would be due ninety days after disbursement of the money.

Rodgers tips Kilmarnock to emulate Leicesters heroics

first_imgLeicester City’s historic Premier League title-winning season can be an inspiration for Kilmarnock according to Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.Aberdeen clinched the league title in 1985 and that was the league was won by a team other than Celtic or Rangers, but Kilmarnock are one point ahead of Celtic and Rodgers believes they can emulate the Leicester City of 2015/2016 season.“They deserve all the credit that they get. It is not by accident. It has been a real consistent run now over the last year or so,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.“Steve has done a brilliant job in terms of how he organizes them, the way they want to play and consistently they have got very good results.“Okay they have played two more matches than us but they are still in a position where some people wouldn’t expect them to be.“But if you watch them clearly, closely over the last year or so Steve and the players have done a great job in term of how they have worked.Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“They are a very difficult team to beat so we know we have to be at our best to get a result we want.“They will feel why not. I think what Leicester have done to probably every team other than a so-called big club is they have made the impossible possible.“But like I say it is still very early. We have played 14 games. Get down to when there are 10 games to go and then we will see where we are at. But what they have shown is the level of consistency.“They are a very good side. They have got good players, some experienced players there and obviously, Steve and his staff have done a great job so I am sure they will be up there throughout the season.”last_img read more

But they are saying you should give $779, which is the average tax hike money,  to get the roads fixed. This is Enron accounting, government math. What we’re telling people is yes, the roads are bad, but don’t buy the notion you’re going to save money by giving government your tax dollars, we need to demand that the existing tax which we pay go to the roads” DeMaio said on Good Morning San Diego.

ASA Taps 16 Growers from Nine States for WISHH Leadership Team

first_imgAmerican Soybean Association (ASA) President Steve Wellman has confirmed 16 soybean growers from nine states to ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) Committee in 2012-13. WISHH Committee Members reelected David Iverson of South Dakota as chair and Andy Welden of Michigan as vice chair. Illinois grower Dan Farney is the new treasurer. Lucas Heinen of Kansas now serves as secretary.New WISHH Committee Members for 2012-13 are: Gary Berg (Ill.); Ron Bunjer (Minn.); Ryan Cahoon (N.C.); Dean Coleman (Iowa); Levi Huffman (Ind.); Mike Marron (Ill.); Joe Murphy (Ill.), and Art Wosick (N.D.). Returning to the Committee are Scott Fritz (Ind.); Monica McCranie (S.D.); Darrel McGriff (Ind.), and Randy Van Kooten (Iowa). United Soybean Board Director Mary Lou Smith (Mich.), and Drew Klein, representing the U.S. Soybean Export Council, serve as ex-officio members of the Committee.Wellman and Iverson recognize outgoing WISHH Members: Ken Bartlett (N.C.); Pat Dumoulin (Ill.); C.W. Gaffner (Ill.); Jared Hagert (N.D.); John Heisdorffer (Iowa); Barb Overlie (Minn.), and Jack Trumbo (Ky.).”ASA thanks the visionary farmers who have led and those who will now lead WISHH to new market frontiers for U.S. soy,” said Wellman. “Building overseas markets for any product takes years, but WISHH has already created new markets for our soy in Africa and beyond.”A new U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) science white paper released on July 24, highlights the importance of developing countries. It leads with, “The future success of U.S. agriculture is tied to economic growth in the developing world. These countries play a vital role in expanding feed and food export markets…”The USDA paper also cites the world population is estimated at 7 billion as of May 2012 and will increase to more than 9 billion by 2050. Currently, nearly one billion people globally are estimated to be food insecure, with 44 percent residing in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to USDA Economist Shahla Shapouri.”Growing populations and increasing incomes are driving demand for U.S. soy protein in developing countries,” said Iverson. “We look forward to working with the many developing country entrepreneurs and organizations that are eager to use U.S. soy to improve the diets as well as economic opportunities in these countries.”Since U.S. soybean farmers founded WISHH in 2000, WISHH has worked in 23 countries to improve diets, as well as encourage growth of food industries. The WISHH program is managed from ASA’s world headquarters in Saint Louis.

County still eyes biomass plant

first_imgCounty commissioners were given an update Wednesday on a proposed biomass-fueled power plant in downtown Vancouver.Mark McCauley, the county’s general services manager, said a number of large, well-financed companies are interested in forming a partnership with the county to build and operate the plant.He said the county would pay about $210,000 per year for renewable energy, comparable to what it currently pays for natural gas. He said the county would save approximately $100,000 a year by cutting back its use of massive chiller units, which are part of the air conditioning system. In addition the county would charge $75,000 a year to the company to lease the land. Last summer, commissioners agreed to spend $225,000 from a federal energy block grant on studying the feasibility of a biomass boiler system (fueled by tree tops, limbs and the detritus of producing lumber) that would provide central heating, cooling and domestic hot water for five county buildings: the Public Service Center, courthouse, jail, 911 center and juvenile courthouse.No final decision has been made on whether to go ahead with the four- or five-story plant, but McCauley will ask the board on April 20 to decide whether the county should put out a formal request for a business partner. Commissioners plan to discuss the topic during a meeting with the Vancouver City Council on April 11.The city would have to approve a zone change and permits for the plant, which the county would like to put on the corner of West 13th and Harney streets, west of the Clark County Jail.last_img read more
