Analysts said the offer was too low, and argued that S&N could command an offer of 1,057p per share, or £9.42bn.S&N shares were trading at 649p at 13:00 GMT today.J&J’s acquisition, which is likely to close in the first half of 2012, has the backing of both the Synthes and J&J boards and will give J&J a leading position in equipment to treat trauma.Synthes, which posted sales of $3.7bn in 2010, makes nails, screws and plates to fix broken bones, as well as artificial spine discs.“Orthopaedics is a large and growing $37bn global market and represents an important growth driver for Johnson & Johnson,” said Bill Weldon, J&J’s chairman and chief executive.The deal is expected to have a modestly dilutive impact on J&J’s adjusted earnings per share for 2012.Crucially, the deal has the backing of Hansjoerg Wyss, who holds 40 per cent of Synthes directly and another eight per cent through family trusts, and was seen as key to any deal going through. Synthes holds its annual general meeting on Thursday.“It is surprising the deal has been struck between cash and shares. The market consensus, and our view, was it would be all cash, so the quality of the take-out is slightly lower than we anticipated,” said Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Jungling.“The take-out valuation doesn’t seem particularly demanding. It’s a scarce asset, and the acquisition makes J&J the number one in the world in orthopaedics,” Jungling said. Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL

NOT FOR FEATURED. PARIS, FRANCE – MARCH 04: Paul O’Connell, (R) captain of Ireland and Thierry Dusatoir captain of France lead their teams out onto the pitch during the RBS Six Nations match between France and Ireland at Stade de France on March 4, 2012 in Paris, France. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS France and Ireland flummoxed our punditsNine rugby experts had a go at predicting the winners of all 15 RBS Six Nations matches in Rugby World’s annual Six Nations Predictions Competition, published in the March edition. With nine games down, and six to go, who is in the running to be this season’s best forecaster?The joint leaders at this stage are former champ and ex Wales fly-half Jonathan Davies, and a first-time player, the new Rugby World editor Owain Jones. Both have called seven results right so far. Unsurprisingly, neither thought France v Ireland would be a draw, while Davies thought Scotland might beat England and Jones expected Ireland to defeat Wales. Close behind with six correct results out of nine are former France hooker Olivier Azam, and RFU referee manager Tony Spreadbury. Still in with a shout, on five out of nine, is Rugby World’s Italian writer and another former winner Gianluca Barca.Extraordinarily, all nine pundits have made the same calls for the fourth round of games, saying Wales will beat Italy, Ireland will beat Scotland and France will beat England, so the Predictions Competition winner will be decided on the last day of the Six Nations. There’s no prize at stake – only pride!

Original published at pagina12.com.ar on Sept. 11. Translation by John Catalinotto.Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro ended his address to the National Defense Council on Sept. 9, which exposed the existence of a military threat and escalation against his country. He said, “We have the evidence of how they intend to create a false positive to provoke an armed conflict between Colombia and Venezuela.”The Monday night meeting followed a day of growing diplomatic tension. First, Venezuelan Minister of Communication Minister Jorge Rodríguez presented evidence of how the Colombian press, particularly Semana magazine, falsified and disseminated documents in an attempt to accuse the Venezuelan government of collaborating with the National Liberation Army (ELN) in Colombia and the sector of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) that resumed armed struggle against that country’s government.After that presentation, a press conference took place in the afternoon with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza and Rodríguez. The diplomatic corps, which is accredited in Venezuela, was summoned to hear “precise information on the terrorist acts planned to be launched from the Republic of Colombia under the protection of the government in Bogotá.”Toward nighttime President Maduro met with the National Defense Council. Representatives from all levels of the Bolivarian National Armed Force, public officials and the national cabinet participated in the meeting.President Maduro, following Article 232 of the Constitution, said: “As head of state, I have passed authority over to the National Defense Council for the collective management of this situation, which is one of a genuine threat of violence, armed conflict and attack by the militarist and criminal government of Colombia.” In his speech, President Maduro denounced the 42 different covert acts that the Colombian government has carried out in three months. One of them has been, and continues to be, an attempt to “recruit Venezuelan officers and noncommissioned officers with the intention of attacking the Venezuelan air and missile defense system, supported by a group of Venezuelans.”President Maduro also referred to the orange alert decreed days ago and the beginning of border operations called “Sovereignty and Peace in Venezuela” that will be carried out from Sept.10 to 28. These are taking place “to fine-tune the entire national defense system, to fine-tune all the mechanisms of the deployment of our country’s military capacity, to fine-tune land defense, anti-aircraft — the coordinated defense of the national territory itself.” Colombia’s president accuses MaduroThe tension between the two countries peaked following the new escalation that began on Aug. 29 when a section of the FARC announced its return to armed struggle. This was followed by Colombian President Iván Duque’s accusation that Maduro’s government offered the FARC support within its territory.Two days later on Aug. 31, Rodríguez announced the arrest of a person who was planning to detonate explosives in central Caracas. He also denounced the presence of three military training centers in Colombia near the Venezuelan border. He explained that this individual, along with others, was trained there and then sent to Venezuela.It was not the first time that the Venezuelan government reported the presence of military training centers in Colombia whose aim is to attack Venezuela. The first incident was the attempted assassination [by drones] of President Maduro on Aug. 8, 2018.The current scenario is framed within [the context of] a new offensive to attempt the overthrow of President Maduro. Declarations [by the opposition] have escalated in recent weeks — particularly since the decree signed by Trump on Aug. 6 to tighten the economic and financial blockade. [Trump’s decree froze Venezuelan governmental assets.] It resulted in Maduro’s decision to suspend negotiations [with the opposition] in Barbados.In this context — and in consideration of the demobilization of the [anti-Maduro] opposition at the national level — the Colombian factor gained strength in the manner of a siege on the Venezuelan government. Duque made no comments on Sept. 9 about the statements made [by President Maduro] from the Miraflores Palace in Caracas.Other external threats against MaduroFinally, three significant events also occurred on Sept. 9. First, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet read a report which reiterated her concerns about human rights violations in Venezuela, while it recognized the negative impact of the blockade and opposition violence.Second, there were the words spoken by Elliott Abrams, U.S. special envoy for Venezuela. From Brussels, he accused the European Union of not imposing greater sanctions against Maduro’s government and of being permissive with its leaders.Finally, it was learned that on Wednesday [Sept. 11], the Organization of American States will debate the request made by self-proclaimed president [of Venezuela], Juan Guaidó, to activate the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance. The document puts on the table the possibility of forming an international coalition against Venezuela. The Venezuelan government withdrew from the OAS [on April 29]. The United Nations General Assembly scheduled for Sept. 27 will be a new scenario for diplomatic confrontation. The tempo has accelerated once more.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
MauritaniaAfrica News MauritaniaAfrica Organisation RSF has learnt that on the evening of 12 April, Mohamed Fall Ould Oumere, Publication Director of the French weekly La Tribune, was arrested by police in Boutilimitt, 150 km east of Nouakchott. Police sources told the Agence France-Presse that the arrest was part of investigations into the clandestine organisation “Conscience and Resistance” (CR). On 25 March, La Tribune published an article on a recent visit to Mauritania by leaders of CR. According to sources close to the journalist, “Mohamed Fall Ould Oumere was about to publish the organisation’s manifesto, which rules out any negotiations with the authorities in power. He was the only person in possession of this document. What’s more, his arrest took place while he was investigating the arrest, the previous day, of Professor Mohamed Baba Ould Said, who was accused of having close links with CR”. Follow the news on Mauritania Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) has written to Mauritania’s Interior Minister, Lemrabott Sidi Mahmoud Ould Cheikh Ahmed, in protest at the arrest of Mohamed Fall Ould Oumere, Publication Director of the French language weekly newspaper La Tribune. “To the best of our knowledge, this journalist, who is well known for his independence, was simply carrying out his work. We are calling for his immediate release. We are all the more concerned as we fear that the police may try to use force to extract information from him,” said RSF Secretary General Robert Ménard. “This arrest again shows the extent to which taboo subjects, such as non-recognised political organisations, still exist in Mauritania,” he added.

The geographical coverage of a comprehensive dataset on Antarctic macrobenthic communities is provided for the first time. Since the sampling methods applied since the 1950s vary considerably, a robust analysis was carried out. The results show firstly, that all main types of communities, especially suspension and mobile or infaunal deposit feeders, can occur everywhere. Thus, their biogeography is hardly predictable and assumed to be shaped by complex biological interactions. Secondly, the often-mentioned dominance of communities composed of suspension feeders and associated fauna can be confirmed.
