Oklahoma State starting quarterback Mason Rudolph, who has more passing TDs this season in 8.5 quarters than all but four teams have on the season, went on SportsCenter with SVP on Thursday evening to preview the TCU game.He didn’t say anything super interesting, which is probably how Mike Gundy likes it, but the back and forth between him and The Bald Man was pretty solid.“Coach preaches it every week,” said Rudolph. “It’s a baby-step approach. It’s a one-week season. If we’re taking care of our work Monday through Friday, our preparation, our film work, making sure we’re hydrating, we’re eating good food, we’re getting good sleep. That’s all we can control.“We can control goals, and we set ourselves up for success. We’ve got the personnel on both sides of the ball to do something special this year.”last_img read more

You have to pick players at the weekend but you don’t watch training.”I only stayed for one month while he was there but I spoke to some players and they told me it was very difficult. “It’s true he won a lot of games, but they didn’t enjoy it.” last_img read more

Prince Charles Talks At Sustainability Summit

first_imgThe Prince of Wales challenged global business leaders to “help save the world” at a sustainability summit last week.The Prince of Wales at the Accounting for Sustainability Annual ForumCredit/Copyright: www.princeofwales.gov.uk/Speaking at the Accounting for Sustainability (A4S) Summit, His Royal Highness said there would be dire consequences if the current state of affairs continued.“Frankly, the older I get the more and more anxious I become – no matter which way you look at it, the sums just do not add up,” he said.The Prince assured the audience that he had done his part for sustainability by walking to the summit before setting out the steps the finance and accounting community need to take over the coming decade.While he began by stressing the fact that he was not an accountant, The Prince said: “I presume you are not just here out of curiosity as to what I might say next, so I hope I can call on your help to take forward the good work that has been done so far and find ways to make sustainability part of the DNA of every finance leader and accountant on the planet.”Around 250 senior figures from major corporations and future finance leaders, including British supermarkets Sainsbury’s and Marks and Spencer, attended the event at the Institute Of Directors in Pall Mall, London.The Prince told the room: “Go out and seek to convince your peers. In this regard, the team of accountants at A4S has highlighted some rather interesting numbers to me.“I understand – and I assume a team of accountants must be right – that if every one of you here in the room today manages to convince just five others to start accounting for sustainability, and then each one of them engages another five each year, in five years’ time we could reach all of the three million accountants in the world!“However, I hate to tell you that for obvious reasons five years is too long – so each of you needs to rush out and convince 10. And then accountants really will be helping to save the world.”The Prince hosted his A4S summit to celebrate its 10th anniversary and the progress it has made since its inception.John Rogers, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Sainsbury’s, said he hoped the summit would create genuine results. He said: “We’ve got some very real, practical tools we would like take forward.”A spokeswoman for the Project said that, historically, accountants have “very much been focused on the financial”.She said: “Increasingly they are looking more and more about how the environmental and social issues can be applied… to really understand how they can look at the link between those different issues and understand what they can do differently”.Jessica Fries, Executive Chairman of A4S, said at the summit: “Over the 10 years since our launch we have worked to dispel the idea that there has to be a choice between making money on one hand and ‘doing the right thing’ on the other.“Making business decisions which are designed to build resilient business models will inevitably lead to a more sustainable economy. However time is not on our side. We have achieved a lot in 10 years but there is still a great deal of work to do.”Source:www.princeofwales.gov.uklast_img read more

 

Valeant shares get a lift after sale of female libido drug to

first_imgMONTREAL – Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. shares got a lift Monday after it announced a deal to unload its US$1 billion female sexual dysfunction drug to the company’s former owners for next to nothing.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Valeant’s shares closed up 4.75 per cent to C$15.43 in Monday trading.Under the deal, Valeant will receive a six per cent royalty on sales of Addyi starting 18 months from the signing of the sale agreement. The company declined to estimate how much it expects to realize.The agreement also ends a legal dispute between Valeant and the former owners of Sprout Pharmaceuticals.“Returning Sprout to its former owners will enable us to further streamline our portfolio and reduce complexity in our business,” Valeant chairman and CEO Joseph Papa stated in a news release issued a day before releases its third-quarter results.He said the company’s turnaround efforts are focused on its core businesses, including eye health, gastroenterology and dermatology.Valeant (TSX:VRX, NYSE:VRX) bought Sprout in 2015 for US$1 billion in cash, plus a share of future profits.Addyi is used by premenopausal women to enhance their libidos and improve their sex lives. It comes with a hefty sales price of US$800 per month.In connection with the sale, Valeant will provide a US$25-million loan to fund initial operating expenses. The sale is expected to close before the end of the year.Douglas Miehm of RBC Capital Markets said the transaction isn’t overly surprising given the disappointing sales of Addyi since its launch in October 2015.He estimates sales this year would be less than US$10 million, far less than Valeant’s earlier forecast of up to US$150 million that last year it said it couldn’t achieve.“However, the company will need to write off a large part of the US$836MM in intangible asset value plus contingent consideration associated with the drug, making the optics particularly poor,” he wrote in a report.Valeant shares have plunged since questions about its business model first emerged two years ago, when they traded for more than $300 per share.The company has since faced a string of lawsuits, including one from its former chief executive, as well as swelling debt levels, losses of more than US$2.4 billion and scrutiny over its drug pricing practices.With its recently announced US$125 million debt repayment, Valeant has reached its goal of repaying US$5 billion of debt about four months ahead of its February 2018 target, wrote Neil Maruoka of Canaccord Genuity.last_img read more

 

NEB rules in favour of Trans Mountain on Burnaby bylaw impasse

first_imgCALGARY – The National Energy Board has ruled in favour of Kinder Morgan Canada in its efforts to bypass Burnaby, B.C., bylaws thatstand in the way of its Trans Mountain expansion project.The NEB order says the company is not required to comply with two sections of the city’s bylaws as it prepares to begin construction in the area.The company had filed a motion to have the NEB overrule the bylaws on a constitutional basis, because it claimed the city was delaying a project the federal government had approved.Burnaby maintained that it was following the standard bylaws process and that the company was to blame for shoddy applications.The NEB says its decision allows the company to start work at its temporary infrastructure site near the Westridge Marine Terminal,and some work at the Burnaby Terminal, subject to any other permits or authorizations that may be required.Kinder Morgan Canada says the $7.4 billion pipeline expansion is already months behind and further delays could threaten the viability of the controversial project.last_img read more
