Buccaneer Leaves Bad Debt, Bad Taste in Homer

first_imgSnow Spence Green has written to the businesses, asking for the return of any payments made during the 90 days before Buccaneer filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy May 31, 2014. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The bad debt left in Homer by oil and gas explorer Buccaneer Oil gets worse, with the law firm handling the company’s bankruptcy now demanding money back from Homer businesses. Seaton also suggested small oil companies should pay higher bonds to prevent this type of situation. Homer Council members expressed some reluctance to continue working with small, independent companies who have less to lose and less to pay during bad times. In related news, a new startup was formed just weeks before purchasing $44 million worth of Buccaneer’s Cook Inlet assets. The company is confusingly named AIX Energy LLC, similar in title but not the same as AIX Energy Inc. which operates Marathon Oil and XTO Energy. Homer business owners are not impressed and not willing to return the little money they’ve received for legitimate debts. The list of outstanding creditors includes: Homer Electric Association, Moore & Moore, HomeRun Oil, the Best Western Bidarka Inn, Alyeska Tire, and Maritime Helicopters. Many say they’re not going to give the money back without a legal fight and all still have money owed. That three-month period is termed a “preference period” and the theory is that the law firm will recover the payments and then redistribute them to all of Buccaneer’s creditors on a pro rata basis. Homer Rep. Paul Seaton said he’s been contacted by some of the companies and is looking for financial relief. If Buccaneer is still on the state registry for tax credits, Seaton said he aims to use that money to repay the debts.last_img read more

IATF okays antigen pilot tests on local travellers

first_imgThe government is set to conduct pilot studies on the use of rapid antigen testing for local travelers in the country.Airline ground staff wearing protective gear work at the counter at the airport in Manila on August 4, 2020.(Photo by Ted ALJIBE / AFP)The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Infectious Diseases (IATF) has approved the recommendation of the Department of Health-technical advisory group on the pilot use of antigen testing to screen people traveling to one place to another.A rapid antigen test is another form of diagnostic test that looks for viral proteins from samples collected through a nasal swab. Test results are validated in the laboratory.In Resolution No. 72, the IATF allowed authorities to “commence pilot studies on the use of Rapid Antigen Testing (Ag-RDTs) for border screening and serial testing in high-risk to low-risk interzonal travel considering cross-border differences in quarantine status and prevalence level of transmission.” The pilot study will also be implemented in the specialized programs of the tourism department.The initial antigen testing will be pursued in coordination with the Department of Tourism and Department of Interior and Local Government and with the assistance of the World Health Organization.Last week, the IATF provisionally adopted the antigen screening protocol for domestic air travelers as recommended by the the Department of Transportation. The health department has been directed to incorporate the use of antigen testing for all domestic travel.The task force earlier approved the use of antigen test as a substitute for reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test as a pre-boarding requirement for asymptomatic domestic tourists before departure and travel to tourism destinations. PCR testing, that involves detecting the virus’ genetic material from a swab sample, remains the gold standard for confirmatory testing.

KKR clinches playoff berth with win over Sunrisers

first_img(IPL) The Kolkata Knight Riders became the third team to secure a playoff berth in VIVO IPL 2018 after they defeated the table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in their final league stage match of the season yesterday. At the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad, the Sunrisers opted to bat and posted 172-9. The Knight Riders chased down the runs in 19.4 overs, winning the match by five wickets. In the evening, the Sunrisers were in an excellent position after 15 overs, but their innings collapsed in the last five overs. SRH were 141-2 after 15 overs but only managed to add 31 runs in the last five overs, while also losing seven wickets in that period.Everyone in the Sunrisers top order contributed; Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 50 (39 balls), while his opening partner Shreevats Goswami made 35 (26 balls). Kane Williamson made a breezy 36 (17 balls), while Manish Pandey made 25 from 22 balls.The opening pair added 79 runs and the second wicket pair added 48 runs; there was very little else in terms of partnerships. For KKR, Prasidh Krishna returned the most successful bowler with figures of 4-30; the pacer triggered SRH’s collapse with the dismissal of Dhawan, and then picked up three wickets in the final over of the innings. Sunil Narine finished with respectable figures of 1-23.The Knight Riders’ chase was set up by Narine, who blasted 29 from 10 balls and dominated a 52-run opening partnership. Chris Lynn and Robin Uthappa then stitched a 67-run partnership that further firmed KKR’s grip on the chase. After both well-set batsmen were dismissed, Dinesh Karthik (26* from 22 balls) steered his team past the finish line.For Sunrisers, the wickets were shared between the birthday boy Siddarth Kaul (2-26), Carlos Brathwaite (2-21) and Shakib Al Hasan (1-30). Rashid Khan bowled well and kept the pressure at his end, but didn’t have much luck in terms of wickets. Sunil Narine set the tempo for KKR’s chase with a nine-ball blitz; the Trinidadian struck three consecutive boundaries and a six in the second over to get the chase on the rolls. He added a boundary and a six in the fourth over before a miscue landed down the throat of long-off.At the other end, Chris Lynn started positively too; he was fluent and forceful against the pacers but played out the spinners cautiously. The Australian collected a flurry of boundaries early on, and thereafter when the required run rate was under control, operated in singles. 22 of his first 25 runs were through hits to or over the fence, 13 of his next 19 runs were through singles. Lynn brought up his half-century in style; he deposited Sandeep Sharma with a fierce pull into the square-leg boundary. Shortly thereafter, he was caught at long-on. Lynn made 55; he hit 4 fours and 3 sixes in his 43-ball knock.Robin Uthappa once again hit the ball sweetly before falling prey to the short ball. The KKR number three cut well, drove the ball fluently and looked comfortable at the crease before he top-edged a pull shot to be caught by the wicket-keeper. Uthappa dropped on 11, made 45 from 34 balls; he hit 4 fours and 2 sixes. Brief Scores:Sunrisers Hyderabad 172-9 (Shikhar Dhawan 50, Shreevats Goswami 35, Kane Williamson 36, Prasidh Krishna 4-30) lost toKolkata Knight Riders 173-5 in 19.4 overs (Chris Lynn 55, Robin Uthappa 45) by 5 wickets.
