The Merger That Made a U.S. Gas Giant Is Failing

14-Jan-2019

EQT’s acquisition of Rice, which gave it more U.S. natural-gas production by volume than Exxon Mobil Corp. , was largely motivated by the idea of drilling supersize horizontal wells beneath the two companies’ contiguous acreage in the Marcellus Shale, one of the largest gas fields in the world.

The EQT-Rice merger got off to a rocky start, partly because of cultural differences between the companies, according to people who have worked for the companies.

Julian Castro calls Trump a 'failed leader,' promises comprehensive immigration reform if elected president

14-Jan-2019

Fresh off announcing that he is running for president in 2020, former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro spared no time in calling out President Trump for his hardline immigration policies and the detention of immigrant families on the United States border with Mexico.

Castro, a Mexican-American politician who previously served five terms as the mayor of San Antonio, countered that as president he would "make sure that we invest in sensible, smart and effective border security that includes personnel, that includes the smart use of technology and that does not scapegoat these immigrants but tries to look for a way that we can get to comprehensive immigration reform to fix our broken immigration system."

Iran satellite Payam fails to reach orbit

Wednesday 07:00 GMT

Earlier in January, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iran's plans to launch the satellites into orbit would violate a UN Security Council resolution made in 2015.

Iran has denied that the satellite program is linked to any nuclear ambitions, claiming it is part of a civil project with purely scientific aims. Tehran says it is sticking to the terms of a 2015 nuclear deal that limits the enrichment of uranium in exchange for nuclear sanctions.

The report, produced by an independent commission, warned that no uniform system exists for dealing with complaints and said there are “drastic inconsistencies” in the way safeguarding issues are handled across the 90-plus countries in which Oxfam International operates.

Theresa May’s survival is just a Tory confidence trick

Friday 16:20 GMT

The last few months have illustrated less confidence in her than a lack of confidence in their own party to find a viable successor or prevail before the electorate.

The amendment suggested by Tory MP Nick Boles, giving MPs the power to work out a cross-party agreement and put it to the vote, reduces the government to just a bit-part player. An unnamed cabinet minister was more blunt: “She’ll suck out of the room any goodwill there is.”

Macron fails to quiet 10th week of Yellow Vest protests in France

Sunday 09:54 GMT

Thousands of Yellow Vest protesters rallied in several French cities for a tenth consecutive weekend on Saturday, despite a national debate launched this week by President Emmanuel Macron aimed at assuaging their anger.

Saturday marked the 10th straight weekend of Yellow Vest protests, and will test whether Macron’s debate is diminishing the movement’s momentum. Facebook begins removing comments from Yellow Vests Canada group following talk of killing Trudeau. The grassroots protests started two months ago over fuel taxes but became a broader revolt against economic problems.

José Mourinho must bin blame game and learn from his failings at United

Today 11:45 GMT

More fool me, then, for wondering whether José Mourinho might have emerged from the breakdown of his Manchester United reign with even a shade more humility.

It is just a shame, perhaps, that Mourinho lacks the humility to understand that people should learn the most about themselves from failure. What he conveniently ignores is that United’s renaissance is a damning indictment of his own shortcomings, a reminder that even the greatest managers can lose form and the hard evidence that he is not actually quite as brilliant as he tells everyone he is.

Failure to ban Huawei turning business decision into ‘hostage negotiation’: former CSIS official

Today 16:19 GMT

Refusal to act decisively in banning Huawei before the arrest of its CFO,  Meng Wanzhou, has turned a business decision into a “hostage negotiation,” according to one former senior CSIS official.

In an interview with The West Block‘s Mercedes Stephenson, Andy Ellis, a former senior official with CSIS, said that while he thinks the government is handling the detentions of Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor — who have been held by the Chinese government since last month — the best it can, Canada’s failure to ban Huawei when its allies did has only made those cases harder to resolve.

Mary Anne Marsh: Two years of Trump and it's midnight (not morning) in America

Today 19:05 GMT

Two years ago, Donald Trump took the oath of office and delivered a dystopian inaugural address that was more midnight in America than morning in America.

There is one line in his inaugural address that explains the troubling Trump approach to governing America: “The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.” Two years later, Trump’s actions have taken a toll on our country that warrants the dark view of his speech.
