The share swap, announced late on Friday, sees BP hand a five per cent stake to Rosneft in exchange for a 9.5 per cent holding in the Russian firm and access to potentially lucrative oil fields in the Arctic Circle. Industry insiders said yesterday it was unlikely that Russia would win a seat on the BP board in the deal.However as BP embarks on an investor roadshow today to herald the deal’s value, some experts warned that the tie-in with an overseas company could prove problematic in light of the introduction of the UK Bribery Act in two months’ time. “BP is one of the most experienced companies in the world when it comes to operating in Russia,” said a FTSE 100 director with experience in the region. “But it has done something pretty ballsy to team up with a Russian firm before these new rules come into force, the effects of which are completely untested.”Meanwhile BP’s partner in its Russian TNK-BP venture, AAR, is trying to establish whether BP’s deal breaches its right of first refusal on BP’s Russian operations. BP investors will have their shares diluted. last_img read more

Jordan top team in Battle of the Bluebonnets

Going against a pared down field of nine, Jordan Elementary School won the Battle of the Bluebonnets Friday.Held at the Odessa High School Fieldhouse, the competition involves students in grades third through fifth reading books on the Texas Bluebonnet Award list and then competing in a quiz-show style event where they test their knowledge about what they’ve read.The top team included Ella Elnar, Morgan Harris, Rylie Rey, Amani Carrillo, Addison Payne and Serenity Palma.Along with Jordan, the other participating campuses were LBJ, Travis, Murry Fly, Reagan, Milam, Dowling, Alamo STEAM Academy and Buddy West elementary.Jordan’s team was a mix of fourth and fifth graders. Carrillo said they were surprised.Payne said her father bought at least 10 books for her to read.“… I sat in my room and read almost all the books that he got me,” Payne said.Jordan Media Specialist Margie McCrury said they had missed winning in previous contests by one question.“I was really excited for them,” McCrury said.When they got back to school, they were going to have Chick-Fil-A delivered, a cookie, then she will get trophies for them.In their swag bags, they get snacks, a book, a water bottle and a gift card from Taco Villa.McCrury said they prepared for the contest all year.“It was very hard. I started doing the lessons for the kids and doing virtual books. Whenever the pandemic first started, we’ve been doing it virtually, but I would go into their classrooms. We couldn’t hand out books, but I would go into their classrooms and do the lessons with them. And I did that with all the third through fifth graders,” McCrury said.Jordan has 800 students, so she said that probably included 400 youngsters.Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction Jaime Miller said this was a smaller version of Battle of the Bluebonnets due to COVID.Miller said they had to start planning the battle in August and they weren’t sure how to bring everyone together. They had students submit projects to decide who could participate.“They had a choice board and they got to pick the project they wanted, so they read the book. Then they got to pick from the choice board what they wanted to create and so they created those projects. That went on all year long. The students created those projects and turned them in to the library media specialists. And then the library media specialists selected who the team was that came, and then also submitted one project to us that was going to serve as the tiebreaker if we ended up needing to go to basically round three, which would be the project scores,” Director of Instructional Technology Lauren Tavarez said.“They turned in some neat stuff,” Tavarez added.She noted that libraries had a different look at each campus.“It was an extra challenge for the library media specialists to get books to kids. … Some libraries were checking out books and some that did not feel safe doing that. It was totally up to them, what their comfort level was so that was an extra thing that we’re proud of them for,” Tavarez said.Miller said they hope to bring everyone back together next year. She expressed thanks to the instructional technology specialists on hand without whom an event like the Battle of the Bluebonnets could not be staged.“They are the bomb,” Miller said.Later in the afternoon, younger students participated in the 2x2s.“We have three this afternoon, but it should be a good battle,” Miller said.

Poetry paints a striking portrait of war

first_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits You Might Like Troy energy forum draws large crowd The Energy Awareness Town Hall meeting Tuesday night at Troy University was the biggest town hall meeting of its kind… read more By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen “A soldier pining for love left behind, the first kill of a new recruit or the loud chattering of teeth in the cold,” he said.“Bone Fragments” is set in the trenches of the Deep South, in Iraq, in China and a dozen other places where wars have been fought. It’s sharply poignant and touched with sadness.“‘Bone Fragments” reflects the kaleidoscope of life at war, evoking the colors, sounds and sorrow of those in battle and those left behind,” Kamerer said.The poems are not of one war but of all wars and about all of those who have fought them: “I am only this: I am a mother’s son. I am a father’s daughter. I end lives. I save them. I build cities; I bomb them. I secure and I breach, storm beaches, build schools, I bleed and I staunch. My name is soldier.” Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Email the author Gabriel Gadfly is not a name that many people around Pike County will recognize.But the name Adam Kamerer will perk more than a few ears.Kamerer is a former member of the Southside Shufflers line dance group and those who enjoyed his shuffling will be interested to know that Adam Kamerer is Gabriel Gadfly.center_img Those lines from “My Name is Soldier,” the first entry in Kamerer’s anthology, is a dedication of sorts to all of those who have fought, bled and died for country.Kamerer is a student of history and now works at the Carmichael Library at the University of Montevallo.His love of poetry goes back to his freshman year in high school and his fascination with words – both written and spoken. He has always found beauty in the way poetry ebbs and flows and in the way that it speaks in a language of its own.As a college student, Kamerer took courses in creative writing and “got serious” about poetry. He began to put his poems on his website.“I entered a contest sponsored by a veterans’ association in Oregon and my poem, ‘Beautiful Like’ won,” Kamerer said. “My publisher encouraged me to write a book and asked if I had anything that I was working on. I was working on war poems.”Kamerer’s chat book soon became a full collection of 50 poems, “Bone Fragments.”“Both of my grandfathers were in the military,” he said. “One grandfather served in the Army and Navy during World War II, Korea and Vietnam. ‘Bone Fragments’ is dedicated to my grandfathers and to all the men and women who have ever been drawn into the machinery of war.Kamerer’s poems are based on real life events and real life people. However, the poems don’t reference specific individuals.“Bone Fragments” is a blending of fiction and facts that chronicle of 150 years of combat in the hope that, “even if peace cannot ever be obtained, we can remember that it is a human thing.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Next UpKamerer, a 2008 graduate of University of Montevallo, used Gabriel Gadfly as his pen name for his recently published anthology of wartime poetry titled, “Bone Fragments.”Gadfly/Kamerer’s poetry encompasses 150 years of conflict, from the War Between the States to the recent upheavals in the Middle East.Kamerer said his poetry attempts to seize the atmosphere of battle in the smallest of moments.
