Talk Talk – 10 of the best

Led by the hugely talented Mark Hollis, the London-based four-piece transitioned from bright, hard-edged pop to mesmeric, meditative post-rock over the course of nine years and five albums The opening track on the band’s patchy 1982 debut, The Party’s Over, dated back to Mark Hollis’s previous group, the Reaction. It even appeared – titled, rather brilliantly, Talk Talk Talk Talk – on a Beggars Banquet compilation called Streets. The track was strong enough to survive the transition from scratchy post-punk to Hollis’s shiny new venture, for which he recruited fellow north Londoner Simon Brenner on keyboards and two Essex boys, Paul Webb and Lee Harris, on bass and drums.

Trump Org: You Can't Expect Us To Turn Over ALL Our Foreign Payments

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, disclosed a glossy eight-page Trump Organization pamphlet on Wednesday detailing the company’s plans to pool profits from foreign governments and return them to the Treasury. George Sorial, the chief compliance officer of the Trump Organization, sent the pamphlet to the committee in response to its inquiry. The Trump Organization pamphlet reveals that the company will not attempt to fully identify and return payments or profits from foreign governments or foreign government-owned entities ― in apparent violation of the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause. This clause forbids the president or other executive branch officials from receiving any payment, title or benefit from foreign governments. “This pamphlet raises grave concerns about the President’s refusal to comply with the Constitution merely because he believes it is ‘impractical’ and could ‘diminish the guest experience of our brand,’” Cummings wrote to Sorial. The Trump Organization sent the pamphlet to Trump properties on April 11. As Cummings notes, the pamphlet states that identifying all foreign government payments would be “impractical in the service industry” and would “diminish the guest experience of our brand.” The pamphlet continues, “It is not the intention nor design of this policy for our properties to attempt to identify individual travelers who have not specifically identified themselves as being a representative of a foreign government entity on foreign government business.” Instead, the pamphlet instructs Trump properties to only return profits on identifiable direct payments from foreign governments, foreign embassies, foreign political parties, royal family members and sovereign wealth funds ― who would have to proactively identify themselves as such, without requiring the Trump property to seek out this information another way. The Trump Organization policy notably excludes payments from foreign government-owned corporations or other entities often used by foreign governments. “We recognize that foreign governments can be organized in very different ways,” the pamphlet states. “Some may operate through state-owned and state-controlled entities in industries such as aerospace and defense, banking, finance, healthcare, energy and others, which may not be reasonably identifiable as foreign government entities, and therefore may not be included in our calculation of profit to be donated.” Cummings said there were obvious “deficiencies” in the policy laid out by the Trump Organization pamphlet. Take, for instance, the Chinese-government owned bank that currently rents office space at Trump Tower in Manhattan. “Those payments would not be tracked in any way and would be hidden from the American public,” he said. This pamphlet raises grave concerns about the President’s refusal to comply with the Constitution merely because he believes it is ‘impractical’ and could ‘diminish the guest experience of our brand.’ Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) At a Jan. 11 press conference before Trump took office, Trump lawyer Sheri Dillon said the Trump Organization would identify and return profits from foreign governments to the Treasury, even though she believed the emoluments clause did not apply to those payments. On April 21, Cummings and House Oversight and Government Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked the company to detail exactly how it would identify and return foreign government profits flowing into its many businesses. They specifically asked the Trump Organization to explain how it identifies foreign government payments, how profits derived from those payments are calculated, how they will be returned to the U.S. Treasury, how those returned profits will be disclosed, whether the returned profits will be claimed by the company as a gift or tax deduction, and which Trump entities will be returning foreign government profits. The Trump Organization only replied to the first three requests in its pamphlet. It did not state whether the total amount returned to the Treasury will be disclosed, if that returned total will be used to lower the company’s taxes or which entities owned by the president are tracking and returning foreign government profits. Sorial wrote that “it is premature to respond at this time” to all of Chaffetz and Cummings’ questions, adding that he wouldn’t have the answers until the end of the year. Cummings replied that this was an unacceptable response and demanded that the Trump Organization fully respond to the committee’s inquiry by June 2. He added, “If President Trump believes that identifying all of the prohibited foreign emoluments he is currently receiving would be too challenging or would harm his business ventures, his options are to divest his ownership or submit a proposal to Congress to ask for our consent.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Can Private Investment Turn Mexico’s Ailing Oil Industry Around?

Five years after Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto made campaign promises to open his country’s oil reserves to foreign interests, a private well been has drilled in Mexico for the first time in nearly 80 years. London’s Premier Oil Plc, Houston’s Talos Energy LLC and Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas began offshore drilling on the joint venture on Monday, according to a statement by Premier. It marks the first private exploration in Mexican waters since the country nationalized its oil industry in 1938. The last time…

Trump Org says singling out profits from foreign guests is ‘impractical’

President Donald Trump’s company says it will be “impractical” to single out individual foreign guests as part of its plan to donate foreign government profits to the Treasury Department, sparking a complaint from a top House Democrat who says the plan may violate a constitutional block on such payments to presidents.Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee had pressed the Trump Organization in April for more information on the profit arrangement, and in return they got a copy of a nine-page pamphlet the company distributed to a range of senior Trump employees who handle everything from property management to sales, food and beverage and human resources.The glossy pamphlet – which includes images of Trump-branded hotels in Washington and Chicago, as well as one of its iconic Miami golf courses – goes into detail about how the company would be using hospitality industry standards for accounting and financial reporting as it comes up with a total dollar figure for profits earned from foreign governments. As president, Trump—who remains owner of the Trump Organization—is prohibited from receiving such payments, known as emoluments. But it also explains that there will be a limit on whose payments to Trump properties would go into the totals.“To fully and completely identify all patronage at our Properties by customer type is impractical in the service industry and putting forth a policy that requires all guests to identify themselves would impede upon personal privacy and diminish the guest experience of our brand,” the Trump Organization said. “It is not the intention nor design of this policy for our Properties to attempt to identify individual travels who have not specifically identified themselves as being a representative of a foreign government entity on foreign government business.”Trump and his lawyers didn’t mention the difficulty of breaking out such payments when they first outlined their ethics plan in January just weeks before the presidential inauguration. The concern also didn’t make it into a statement the company released in March when it first started publicly describing how it wouldn’t be making its first donation until 2018.According to the pamphlet, the Trump Organization’s accounting of foreign government payments also won’t cover profits earned by owners of condominium-hotel units in Trump-managed properties because “those profits belong to the individual condominium-unit owners.”Trump officials relayed details of its voluntary policy to its employees at each hotel, golf and social club, as well as its winery outside Charlottesville, Virginia, in an April 11 email from Chief Compliance Counsel George Sorial. They explained that the policy – with two follow-up training sessions for employees – went into effect upon Trump’s inauguration as president on Jan. 20. “Please review and adhere to this important internal policy and be sure to share it only with your team members as appropriate. The policy makes very clear the scope and sources by which properties shall identify foreign government patronage,” Sorial wrote.The Trump Organization’s donation policy has been under close scrutiny on Capitol Hill since Trump in January first outlined how he’d arrange his private business enterprise while serving in the White House – maintaining ownership but handing over daily duties to his adult sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, as well as longtime executives.Senate Democrats last week sent their own letter to Trump company officials demanding more details of the company’s operations since January. But it was Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, who led the request for information on the president’s profit donation policy that yielded the company sharing its pamphlet and other internal materials.Chaffetz, a Utah Republican who plans to leave Congress next month, well before his term expires, didn’t publicly release the Trump Organization’s documents. Instead, Rep. Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat who had joined in the initial information request as the committee’s ranking member released the materials and sent his own letter Wednesday back to Trump Organization officials saying that he’s still not satisfied with the information it has shared.“Unfortunately, your meager response does not include the vast majority of documents we requested in our letter,” Cummings wrote. Citing Trump’s own words when he announced the ethics plan at the January press conference in Trump Tower, Cummings added, “This pamphlet raises grave concerns about the President’s refusal to comply with the Constitution merely because he believes it is ‘impractical’ and could ‘diminish the guest experience of our brand.’”“Complying with the United States Constitution is not an optional exercise, but a requirement for serving as our nation’s President,” Cummings added. “If President Trump believes that identifying all of the prohibited foreign emoluments he is currently receiving would be too challenging or would harm his business ventures, his options are to divest his ownership or submit a proposal to Congress to ask for our consent.”Also on Wednesday, top Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee responded to the Trump Organization's statements by releasing their own letter demanding that the president provide them with documentation detailing the company's dealings with foreign governments.Led by ranking member John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.), they presented Trump with a series of questions about his position in various Trump Organization business ventures and their foreign deals.Chaffetz and Cummings had also asked the Trump Organization for a more complete account of how it would track and publicly report the donations to the Treasury, as well as whether donations would be claimed by the company as tax deduction gifts. And they asked for documents showing which Trump properties would be donating profits from foreign government sources.But in his May 11 reply to the lawmakers, Sorial explained that those details aren’t ready for release yet.“We believe it is premature to respond at this time insofar as final determinations regarding these matters are dependent on many factors that will not be known to [the Trump Organization] until after the close of this year,” Sorial wrote.Cummings also criticized the Trump Organization for failing to brief lawmakers on their profit policy by a May 19 deadline that the lawmakers originally gave. The Democrat asked the company to schedule that meeting by June 2."We have received and are in the process of reviewing the letter. We take these matters seriously and are fully committed to complying with all of our legal and ethical obligations," said a spokesperson for the Trump Organization.Chaffetz’s office did not respond to requests for comment on Cummings’ letter.

Private Equity Employs Unusual New Strategy In Oil & Gas

I’ve written a lot recently about the surge in private equity for natural resources. With PE firms in the energy space being particularly dominant — holding an estimated $156 billion in funds for global projects. And this week, one major investment group cut a unique deal to deploy those funds. With the terms suggesting some interesting shifts underway in how these buyers pursue new assets. The investor is Carlyle Group. And the target is not a buyout — but rather a joint venture, with major U.S. shale player EOG Resources. Carlyle…

Ходил за венчурными инвестициями

Ходил вчера общался с венчурным инвестором про свой проект. В общем оценили его и предложили сумму «на зубочистки». Причем для получения денег я должен открыть ООО на свои и сам же платить налоги, выходит и вовсе мизер. На вопрос а че мало то так? Говорит — ну а смысл мне рисковать, денег то проект пока не приносит, вот если будет приносить, тогда так и быть — куплю за годовой доход. А вообще венчурный инвестор не должен рисковать своими деньгами.    Я спрашиваю — так а ваша роль тогда какова? Идею вам приносят, развивают проект тоже за свои, делают бизнес успешным что бы продать по себестоимости? Где вы то в пищевой цепочке спрашиваю.    Он уставился на меня и предложил рассказать притчу. Не знаю придумал или так и было. Дескать подглядели братья Дуровы у Цукерберга фейсбук. Решили делать похожий проект. А так как ребята были талантливые, быстро сами захерачили сайт и он начал быстро расти. Но вот незадача. Они же бедные студенты, и срочно нужен был рекламный бюджет. И они слили 70 процентов проекта всего за один лям рублей. А инвестор стал миллиардером. Тут его глаза мечтательно заблестелести.  К инвестору идут с готовым прибыльным, растущим бизнесом, вынужденно, по большой нужде. Вот это — инвестирование!    Вот такие дела...    Пользуясь случаем напомню, что недавно сделали классный редактор пометок, особенно хороша возможность «натянуть профиль» ru-ticker.com/FootPrint

General Electric signs 1 billion riyal deal to build gas turbines in Saudi Arabia

General Electric (GE) signed a one billion riyal ($267 million) joint venture agreement on Wednesday with Saudi Arabia's state-backed Dussur industrial development company to manufacture gas turbines in the eastern city of Dammam. The agreement, announced at a press conference in Riyadh, follows an announcement by GE during U.S. President Donald Trump's visit last weekend of $15 billion of business deals, including memorandums of understanding which would require further agreements to materialize. GE and Dussur signed a memorandum of understanding last year that is expected to result in nearly 3.75 billion riyals of investment by the two companies across multiple sectors in 2017.

S&P Is Reaching Record Highs, But The TSX Venture Is Where The Money’s At!

Since inception, the S&P 500 has shown steady growth. In fact, if you had bought the index in January 1950 and held until now, your investment would be up a cool 14,000%. Compare that to the TSX Venture, where a buy and hold strategy since inception in 1990 would have yielded a return of -7.0%. The reason for this difference is the absolute cyclicality of resource market versus general equities. Since 2011, the S&P has plowed ahead, while the TSX Venture became mired in its worst and longest bear market. The S&P has gained 61% at a time while the Venture gave up a staggering 77%. Ouch! However, since the resource markets began to rebound in 2016, the dynamics have altered. The TSX Venture has outperformed the S&P 500 for the past 18 months in dramatic fashion, posting a 71% gain while the S&P rose just 21%. What’s at play? General equity growth may be slowing. However the real factor here is the strength of cyclicality in a resource bull market. Resource investors continually dwell on the never-ending bull market in the S&P – we have been quite vocal on the topic. The data outlined above puts a new perspective on things, a reminder that we are in a bull market and as the title of this article suggests, “The S&P is reaching record highs, but the TSX-V is where the money is at!”

Hyperloop объявила о 1-ом тестировании в ближайшие сутки

Испытания нового вида транспорта.Как мы знаем, наиболее видными «материализаторами» амбициозных планов Илона Маска являются две американские компании с похожими названиями и одинаковыми расположением (обе зарегистрированы в Лос-Анжелесе): Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) и Hyperloop Technologies.Испытательный полигон Hyperloop One в Лас-ВегасеК слову, последняя на днях сменила название на Hyperloop One и привлекла дополнительные инвестиции в размере $80 млн в очередном раунде финансирования серии B (в результате общий размер инвестиций достиг $120 млн). Именно о ней и пойдет речь в данной заметке.За последнее время обе компании приложили огромные усилия, чтобы новый вид транспорта в будущем ассоциировался с именем одной из них. В частности, HTT на днях заключила партнерство с Ливерморской национальной лабораторией касательно использования технологии Inductrack для собственных поездов Hyperloop. Но похоже, что на практическом фронте Hyperloop One незначительно опережает HTT.На данный момент у Hyperloop One есть достаточно много партнеров, среди которых можно упомянуть 137 Ventures, Khosla Ventures, французскую национальную железную дорогу, Sherpa Ventures, Eight VC, ZhenFund и Caspian VC Partners. Только этот раунд венчурного финансирования пополнил список партнеров Hyperloop One десятком новых имен, включая международную проектно-конструкторскую компанию Aecom.Напомним, последняя совместно с SpaceX сейчас строит тестовый трек Hyperloop протяженностью 1,5 км для проведения соревнований в июне 2016 года.Но главное другое — в ближайшие 24 часа компания проведет первое тестовое испытание собственной системы на испытательном треке в северной части Лас-Вегаса. Целью данного поистине исторического события является демонстрация того, что Hyperloop на самом деле является реальностью, а не нелепой выдумкой фантастов.Само собой, в данном случае речь не идет о полномасштабной системе с передвигающимися капсулами, заполненными пассажирами, но компания покажет технологию, лежащую в основе системы. Текущий тестовый трек Hyperloop One предназначен для проведения испытаний под открытым небом, которые в основном состоят из передвижения линейных двигателей по 800-метровому треку со скоростью 530 км/ч.Более серьезные испытания Hyperloop One планирует провести в четвертом квартале этого года, но подробностей на сей счет пока, увы, нет.отсюда

Мемория. Леонид Меламед

11 июля 1967 года родился Леонид Меламед, предприниматель, экс-президент АФК «Система».   Личное дело Леонид Адольфович Меламед (48) родился в Москве. Его отец - Адольф Абрамович, много лет проработал хирургом-травматологом Городской клинической больницы N 7 г. Москвы, мать - Алла Григорьевна, архитектор, долгие годы была заместителем директора ГУП "НИиПИ Генплана Москвы". Леонид с отличием окончил Московскую медицинскую академию имени И.М.Сеченова по специальности травматология и ортопедия. Во время учебы работал санитаром и медбратом. В 1991 году Меламед поступил на работу в страховую компанию РОСНО (ОАО «Российское страховое народное общество») на должность медицинского консультанта. В феврале 1992 года стал директором центра медицинского страхования РОСНО, а уже в июне - заместителем гендиректора РОСНО. Еще будучи студентом, Леонид Меламед начал писать кандидатскую диссертацию. Поэтому, окончив институт, еще почти четыре года совмещал ординатуру и работу в «Росно»: днем работал и учился, ночами дежурил в больнице и писал кандидатскую. «Но выбор нужно было делать – совмещать практическую хирургию и бизнес невозможно, в конце концов, хирург должен постоянно «тренировать руки». И я после защиты окончательно выбрал бизнес», - рассказывал потом Меламед. 15 сентября 2003 года он был назначен генеральным директором РОСНО. В 2004-2006 годах Меламед параллельно возглавлял экспертный совет по законодательству в области страхования при комитете Госдумы РФ по кредитным организациям и финансовым рынкам. В 2006 году Леонид Меламед, успевший приобрести репутацию эффектного управленца, был «переброшен» руководством ОАО «Акционерная финансовая корпорация "Система"» (АФК «Система»), владеющего РОСНО и МТС, из страхового сектора в телекоммуникационный. В июне 2006 года Меламед стал президентом и членом совета директоров ОАО «Мобильные ТелеСистемы» (МТС). За два года он поднял капитализацию МТС больше, чем вдвое и вывел компанию в лидеры по числу новых подключений. В конце мая 2008 года Меламед оставил пост главы МТС и перешел на должность президента АФК «Система», которая в том момент находилась в состоянии затяжного кризиса. В 2012 году Леонид Меламед ушел из АФК «Система» и организовал собственный бизнес: компанию «Team Drive», которая специализируется на управлении крупными проектами и венчурными фондами. В настоящее время Леонид Меламед является председателем Совета директоров компании «Team Drive», членом Совета директоров компаний «РоснаноМедИнвест» и «НоваМедика», а также попечителем благотворительного фонда «Созидание». С 2012 года входит в состав Экспертного совета при правительстве Российской Федерации. Женат, воспитывает трех дочерей и сына.     Леонид Меламед Чем знаменит Леонид Меламед – один из самых успешных российских топ-менеджеров последнего десятилетия. Он успел побывать главой крупнейших и известных всем компаний – «Росно», МТС, АФК «Система». В 2004 году он получил звание «Человек года» в ежегодном проекте «Люди года» интернет-холдинга Рамблер и Российскую общественную премию в области страхования «Золотая Саламандра» в номинации «Руководитель страховой компании». В 2005 году стал лауреатом Национальной премии «Персона года 2005» в номинации «Руководитель страховой компании» и был назван «Управленцем 2005 года» за стремительное наращивание стратегического потенциала в рамках проекта «Действующие лица века», реализуемого Международной Лигой стратегического управления, оценки и учета, Институтом экономических стратегий и журналом «Экономические стратегии». В 2009 году был признан лучшим топ-менеджером года по мнению Ассоциации Менеджеров России и ИД «Коммерсантъ», стал лауреатом премии «АРИСТОС-2009» Ассоциации Менеджеров и ИД «Коммерсантъ» в номинации «Высший руководитель». В 2010 году в рейтинге высших руководителей газеты «Коммерсантъ» Леонид Меламед занял первое место в номинации «Финансовый сектор».   О чем надо знать Не следует путать Леонида Адольфовича Меламеда с Леонидом Борисовичем Меламедом - экс-главой госкорпорации «Роснанотех» (с марта 2011 года - ОАО «РОСНАНО»), который в настоящее время является фигурантом уголовного дела о нецелевом расходовании госсредств и обвиняется в растрате имущества «Роснанотеха» на более чем 220 млн рублей. Однако, Леонид Адольфович все же связан с Роснано – его компания «Тим драйв» занимается проектом по производству лекарств и медицинских устройств в России и США, в который «Роснано» и управляющая компания венчурных фондов Domain Associates вложили $760 млн. «В России по ряду причин private equity инвесторов очень мало. По сравнению с западными рынками их, считай, почти нет. Один из таких инвесторов – «Роснано». Я, к счастью, давно знаком с Анатолием Борисовичем Чубайсом и поинтересовался, есть ли у «Роснано» активы, которым требуется ускорение в развитии. А он ответил, что есть куда более интересный и нестандартный новый проект, сочетающий венчурное финансирование и фармацевтику. Речь о создании операционной фармацевтической компании «Новамедика» и венчурной инвестиционной компании «Роснаномединвест» в рамках соглашения «Роснано» и Domain Associates. И нам это оказалось действительно интересно, так как это крупный проект и серьезный вызов, связанный, как когда-то в 91-м году, при создании «Росно», с формированием новой индустрии, нового рынка в стране», - рассказывает о сотрудничестве с Роснано сам Меламед..   Прямая речь: О планах на жизнь в юности: «В 20 лет, когда я учился в мединституте, у меня, как и у всех советских студентов, был некий конкретный план: ординатура, аспирантура, кафедра, заработать на квартиру, стать профессором, лечить людей. Была еще мечта – убедить какую-нибудь хорошую команду взять меня спортивным врачом, так как любил и люблю спорт. Все-таки моя профессия – травматолог-ортопед. А потом началась перестройка – и все поменялось». О стиле своего управления: «Я стараюсь всегда объяснить коллективу, что именно мы хотим, в простых и ясных терминах и цифрах. И дальше предлагаю каждому сверять свои действия – совпадают они с этими целями или нет». О самомотивации: «Успех, который выражается в том, чтобы получить общественное признание и много денег, как таковой перестал быть для меня единственным мотиватором, когда я заканчивал карьеру в «Системе». Стал гораздо важнее акцент, направленный на востребованность, созидательность, – звучит, возможно, несколько банально, но от этого не менее важно – чтобы ты был нужен, чтобы то, что делает твоя команда, было по-настоящему полезно людям и чтобы ты получал ощущение реального созидания, в результат которого ты веришь. И радость от процесса его достижения».   3 факта о Леониде Меламеде По словам основного акционера АФК «Система» Владимира Евтушенкова, Леонид Меламед пять раз просил отпустить его из АФК «Система» «в более операционный бизнес». В 2010 году Меламед в качестве вознаграждения получил 0,0009% акций «Системы», стоимостью 110 тысяч долларов, став таким образом акционером корпорации. Увлекается горными лыжами, автогонками, альпинизмом..   Материалы о Леониде Меламеде: Биография Леонида Меламеда на сайте Peoples.Ru Персона: Леонид Меламед: Начатое надо заканчивать.

Как рынок меняет работу венчурных фондов

Радоваться так же, как в 1999 г., возможно, еще рано, но у венчурных инвесторов есть основания выпить шампанского. В первые три месяца года американские венчурные фонды инвестировали $13,4 млрд, добившись наилучшего показателя с начала 2000 г.
