They feel they can grow the value of that part of the company and if they are reluctant to sell, a deal could be difficult.”However, analysts remain confident the Beam Global Spirits & Wines business will not remain independent for long, with other industry rivals also eyeing its prized assets. Sources close to Diageo hinted it would be interested if regulatory hurdles could be overcome.Although Diageo could comfortably afford to snap up the entire drinks division, which has an estimated value of $8.7bn (£5.5bn), competition issues mean it is far more likely to team up with another drinks retailer.Simon Hales of Evolution Securities says an auction involving Diageo and Bacardi is the most likely scenario, circumventing conflicts with the Guinness owner’s distribution deals with LVMH Moet Hennessy on cognac and Casa Cuervo for Jose Cuervo tequila.The brands likely to interest Diageo most, including Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark bourbon, would set the firm back around $5.5bn.

Texas police use drone to nab burglary suspect

first_imgKTRK-TV(HOUSTON) — It used to be that police departments needed to have a helicopter to identify and locate fleeing suspects from the air.But not anymore. The advent of drone technology is putting that capability into the hands of even small law enforcement agencies.“It took a helicopter to chase bad guys in the past, and it was very expensive to do that — something that an agency our size could never possibly afford,” Lt. Russell Brown of the Bellaire Police Department in Texas told Houston ABC station KTRK-TV.Now, Bellaire police have three drones at their disposal, and officers say they’re helping save lives. When police in the nearby town of West University were trying to locate a fleeing burglary suspect, the call went out to Officer Aarob Lysack, one of four licensed drone pilots with the Bellaire Police.Lysack, who was patrolling in his police cruiser, put his drone in the air and sent it in search of the suspect.“That drone was able to locate the suspect before the officers could, and basically lead officers to the suspect,” Brown told KTRK.The drone located the suspect running through a backyard, and it recorded him as he tried to get rid of a backpack.When officers recovered it, authorities say the backpack was filled with the stolen items — as well as a gun.“The drone was able to see that, document that on film, and have that video ready for court if needed,” Brown said.For Lysack, drone technology represents a giant leap forward for law enforcement.“It goes about 50 miles an hour. It’s got a range of about three miles, as long as we can see it visually. It can go up to 400 feet high,” said Lysack. “The thermal camera on it can see a human walking down the street or even a warm vehicle that was recently parked. The zoom goes up to 30 times optical and 180 times digital.”“I think this is a big game changer,” he said. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

£5.2 million missing from student accounts after University blunders

first_imgA UNIVERSITY error severely delaying loan payments has stranded hundreds of students without the financial means to pay battels and basic living costs.Undergraduates have been forced to loan each other money, and some have reported charges of up to £4000 on their termly battels after colleges included University tuition fees with charges for rent.Around 1200 students were affected, with over £5.2 million in loan payments delayed.JCR Presidents are to hold a meeting today in an attempt to force the University to correct the error before more students hit serious financial trouble.The problem, caused by the University’s new online registration system, has prevented money from the Student Loans Company reaching students.In a statement released on Wednesday, the Oxford Student Information Centre (OSIC) charged with running the registration scheme admitted responsibility for the fault.“One of the daily file uploads to the SLC that confirms student attendance had a problem. To remedy this the Central Administration section reconfirmed all enrolled SLC students to the SLC.”OSIC claimed that payments for the approximately 300 students affected took three to five working days to process, although many students have disputed this.Pembroke JCR President Chris Bennetts said, “The online registration process was supposed to make things easier, but for many students this year it has had the opposite effect. Students live on tight budgets and many cannot afford to wait for errors to be corrected.“Despite completing the online registration in plenty of time for the new academic year, loan payments were not made.”Martha Rowsell, a second-year language student at Brasenose, registered in time but still experienced weeks of delays before receiving her first payment on Tuesday.“It’s outrageous that the loans have taken so long to come through,” she said. “It’s not so bad for students who can rely on support from their parents, but for those who can’t it’s been really hard.”The University has refused to accept total responsibility for the delays, claiming they occurred nationally as a result of “heavy traffic loads on the SLC portal by universities confirming attendance”.In a second blunder, around 900 other students face an even longer wait after failing to register on time. “It took ages for all the relevant information to come through,” said one third-year St Anne’s student who wished to remain anonymous. “When I was finally able to enter my password and user name in late September, I was told the site was not yet operational. I think the whole process should be made less cumbersome.”User names for the new system were sent to students’ contact addresses by their colleges, but passwords emailed from OSIC did not reach some respondents as University email accounts filtered them as junk mail.OSIC said that of those who did not successfully register, 90 per cent of queries were dealt with within 48 hours.The Student Loans Company, however, has indicated that late registrations could take up to six weeks to process, leaving students to rely on bank overdrafts or borrowing from friends when overdrafts have already reached maximum limits.College bursaries were keen to stress their sympathy for students suffering financial difficulties. Mansfield has removed penalties on late battels payments while Pembroke offered some students short-term loans to cover rent.Brasenose’s Bursar John Knowland said, “We will allow late payment when there is a genuine reason for being unable to pay on time, including the late arrival of money from the Student Loan Company.”In reference to those students whose battels unexpectedly included tuition fees he added, “The College does not charge students the fees which it is obliged to pass to the University, if it has received confirmation from the Student Loan Company that those fees will be paid by the Student Loan Company.” By Michael Sweeneylast_img read more
