The firm’s stock closed up 26 per cent at 132.25p. News of this find comes after rival Rockhoppers also said it had found oil there earlier this year.Desire chairman Stephen Phipps hinted that Desire will step up its discovery activities there. Phipps said: “This discovery combined with Rockhoppers’ Sea Lion discovery confirms our belief that the eastern flank play fairway in the North Falkland Basin is highly prospective and that further oil fields will be discovered in this area.” The discovery could ignite tensions between Argentina and the UK over the islands, located in the South Atlantic Ocean. The UK successfully repelled an Argentinian invasion in 1982, and the islands have remained under British control ever since.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! It has been a bad year for ITV (LSE: ITV). Coronavirus and lockdown have stopped the production of some of its most popular shows. But as another of its top hits starts again this week, I am wondering if ‘I’m a Celebrity’ will be enough to bolster its share price.Popular shows translate to advertising revenueAs a viewing public, we may have been disappointed when TV’s top hits were cancelled in 2020, but for ITV it is far worse. Popular shows bring in massive advertising revenue. At the risk of stating the obvious, making less money hurts a company’s share price.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…During the summer months, when viewer-favourite ‘Love Island’ would usually have been on, ITV reported revenues falling about 7%. ‘The X Factor’ was also cancelled this year – yet another hit to its advertising cash flow.Interestingly, ITV has also been seeing less revenue from the holiday industry. As early as April this year the company was warning about the suspension and postponement of advertising campaigns from the industry. At present, this still remains an unknown factor going forward.On a more positive note, ITV’s latest figures show advertising spending in November is up around 6% so far. This gives it an optimistic view for Q4, suggesting the quarter may end “slightly up year on year”. Its share price has climbed 35% since the begging of this month.ITV did warn however that these positive projections assumed that “current Covid restrictions in England end as planned on 2 December”. Taking an uncharacteristically positive view, I think this seems a reasonable assumption at the moment.Vaccines and I’m a CelebrityAs with many industries this past week, those that were suffering on the back of coronavirus have seen a boost on positive vaccine news. The ITV share price is no different – up about 6% over the past week.As the first episode of ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’ aired on Sunday night though, ITV has another reason to celebrate. The show that usually sees various famous people spending time in the Australian jungle is another major hit for the company. Despite some concerns it may not be same set in a Welsh castle, it has already assuaged these fears.Its popularity should translate to more advertising revenue for Q4. The last quarter of the year is particularly important for broadcasters, making up much of their annual revenue. For ITV, Q4 accounted for almost 30% of its full-year advertising revenue in 2019.Can it help the ITV share price long term?Personally, though I think ITV’s Q4 numbers will help, it may not be enough to support the share price in the long term. In my opinion the company has a number of headwinds its needs to face.The main one of these for me is the increase in digital streaming. This was already a trend before Covid-19. Lockdown has seen this increase. ITV said that during summer, while total viewing hours climbed 2%, its share fell 4%.Personally, its attempts to hit back with BritBox seem too little, too late. It’s hard to see it competing with Netflix and Amazon. Though coronavirus concerns do seem to be waning, I think it may have been the catalyst that set terrestrial TV’s decline on the fast track.

Macron receives Information and Democracy Commission at Elysée

first_img September 10, 2018 – Updated on September 12, 2018 Macron receives Information and Democracy Commission at Elysée This initiative’s ultimate goal is an international commitment by governments, private-sector companies and civil society representatives based on the International Declaration on Information and Democracy that the commission is tasked with drafting.“We requested and obtained Emmanuel Macron’s support and his promise to join with leaders of other democratic countries in launching a political process designed to achieve this international commitment,” Deloire said after the meeting. “This initiative will allow an approach adapted to current and future challenges in order to guarantee that human beings have access to freely reported and reliable news and information in the new context of globalized and digitalized information that is ours today.”Letters have already been sent to leaders in all continents, and RSF hopes that they will commit as early as mid-November, when dozens of heads of state and government meet in Paris for the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War (11 November), for the Paris Peace Forum (11-13 November) and the Internet Governance Forum (12-14 November).  President Macron said that a place would be assigned to the Information and Democracy Commission at the Paris Peace Forum.The Information and Democracy Commission is completely independent of all centres of political or business power and influence. Although created at RSF’s initiative, it is not bound by RSF’s mandate.

His lawyers had threatened to sue in a letter to the newspaper on 15 May.“We regret that the prime minister has opted for legal action instead of using his right of reply,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“This libel action is disastrous for freedom of information in Malaysia because it means that any news outlet can be sued whenever it allow its readers to express their views. We urge the prime minister to reverse course and let people criticize him.”Malaysiakini editor Steven Gan said: “We intend to fight the suit vigorously.” Known for its independence and frequent criticism of the prime minister’s party, which has held power for years, Malaysiakini is also currently being sued by other politicians and businessmen in connection of its coverage of various scandals.A court hearing to be attended by lawyers representing the prime minister and Malaysiakini has been set for 18 June.Malaysia is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

“Deforestation and pollution, high-risk subjects”

first_img Organisation June 3, 2010 – Updated on January 25, 2016 “Deforestation and pollution, high-risk subjects” On the eve of World Environment Day (5 June) , Reporters Without Borders is today releasing a report entitled “Deforestation and pollution, high-risk subjects.” Attacks on journalists and bloggers who try to cover any kind of environmental damage are growing steadily all over the world but those who investigate industrial pollution or the destruction of forests are particularly exposed.With the help of its worldwide network of correspondents, Reporters Without Borders has gathered information about incidents in Indonesia, Argentina, El Salvador, Gabon, India, Azerbaijan, China and Morocco. Behind each of these threats and attacks, there were big corporations, criminal gangs or government officials who had been corrupted by money from mining or logging.The latest incident was the beating that an Indonesian army officer gave to Ahmadi, a journalist in Aceh province, two weeks ago. The officer did not like a story Ahmadi had written about his involvement in illegal logging. Ahmadi joins the long list of journalists who have been targeted for shedding light on deforestation, which is responsible for at least 18 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.Published in English, French and Spanish, this report condemns the responsibility of the Vietnamese and Chinese governments in serious press freedom violations that deprive the public of crucial information about cases of pollution or deforestation. The report describes, for example, the way the government in Hanoi has tried to suppress any debate about the environmental impact of bauxite mines being operated by a Chinese company. A field investigation in Argentina established that journalists are under pressure from both supporters and opponents of a mining project.Mining companies (Aluminium Corp of China, China Metallurgical Group and the Canadian companies Yamana Gold and Pacific Rim), oil companies (Shell, Addax and Synopec), wood pulp companies (Sinar Mas and Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper) and two French multinationals (Bolloré and Areva) are identified in this report as having a direct or indirect role in cases of intimidation or censorship.This is the second report that Reporters Without Borders has published on this subject. In September 2009, a report entitled “The dangers for journalists who expose environmental issues” looked at 15 cases of journalists and bloggers who had been killed, attacked, jailed, threatened or censored for covering environmental problems in Russia, Cambodia, Bulgaria and Brazil.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the appeal it launched during last December’s Copenhagen Summit: “The media are needed to gather information and disseminate it to the public. As regards the challenges of climate change, the media help to establish credible, independent diagnoses of the state of our planet. Their analyses play a crucial role in helping decision-makers to adopt policies and rules that will lead to the desired changes.” Reports Open publication – Free publishing – More environmentcenter_img Help by sharing this information RSF_en Related documents Download the reportPDF – 1.84 MB last_img read more
