Glencore Xstrata’s vote of confidence in Africa

first_img SAinfo reporter 14 November 2013 Glencore Xstrata, the world’s fourth-largest diversified miner, launched a secondary listing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange on Wednesday. The company listed on the JSE’s main board with a global market capitalisation of R732-billion, making it the third-largest company on the exchange. Glencore’s diversified operations comprise over 150 mining and metallurgical sites, offshore oil production assets, farms and agricultural facilities in various countries. The company has ferrochrome, platinum and coal mines in South Africa, and is the country’s largest exporter of coal. “Our listing on the JSE is a significant step for Glencore,” Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg said in a statement. “It not only deepens our relationship with South Africa, it highlights our confidence in Africa as a place to invest.” JSE chief executive Nicky Newton-King said it was a “huge accolade for the exchange that a multinational company of Glencore Xstrata’s size and stature would select the JSE for its secondary listing. “We are confident that this listing will enhance Glencore Xstrata’s growth prospects and profile on the continent,” Newton-King said, adding: “The listing reflects well on South African financial markets and sends a positive message to potential issuers both local and international.” Glencore Xstrata is the tenth company and the fourth resources group to list on the South African exchange this year. Newton-King said the listing was likely to attract investors to the JSE and increase trading activity on the exchange. “For local investors this listing also provides exposure to another globally diversified company.” Glencore Xstrata has a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange and a secondary quote on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.last_img read more

Holidays are a busy time for turkey farmers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The holiday season ensures a busy time of year for turkey farmers and 2016 has been no exception. Bowman and Landes Turkeys of New Carlisle  have been specializing in free-range gourmet turkeys since 1948 and the tradition continues today.“In our business, we have a lot of focus on the whole turkey market for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is definitely what we would consider our busy season. We hire a bunch of additional employees to help us get through it,” said Drew Bowman, part of the third generation involved in the business. “We have a large focus on providing whole turkeys, breasts, and roasts for the grocers of the world. But we also work with the food service side — restaurants, colleges, catering — so we have a year-round business as well.”With catering to such a niche sector of the market, Bowman commented on the state of their business.“It’s been going well for us,” he said. “We do not raise commodity turkeys per say, we are raising our turkeys free range and they’re never given any antibiotics and they’re raised on an all vegetable fed diet with no animal byproducts. Certainly not the cheapest turkey around, but we think we have the best quality turkey out there. The demand is high for them.”The nature of any animal product meant for the holidays means the business has to get in the holiday spirit a bit earlier than most.“We’re raising a lot of our turkeys starting in the summer months, but when it really starts to pick up here is late October basically through Christmas. That’s absolutely our busiest season,” Bowman said. “That’s when we’re processing the turkeys and doing all of our packaging and distribution. The turkeys take between 16 and 20 weeks to raise, so we’re raising those all throughout the summer and fall and we normally raise some turkeys in the wintertime as well. We definitely stay busy all year around, but predominantly mid-October through December is certainly our busiest time of the year.”Bowman said in their dealings with the whole turkey market, they’ve found customers of theirs surprised by aspects of livestock farming that may seem natural to the more rural-inclined.“Just the care with which we raise our turkeys — not many people these days are raising their turkeys free-range,” Bowman said. “People can come to our farm and see our turkeys being raised in an environment where we raise some completely on our pastureland once they’re old enough, and others are raised in barns with access to go outside. A lot of people in this day and age are really surprised and happy to see that.”last_img read more

Thoracic spine CT scan

first_imgDefinitionA computed tomography (CT) scan of the thoracic spine is an imaging method that uses x-rays to rapidly create detailed pictures of the middle back (thoracic spine).Alternative NamesCAT scan – thoracic spine; Computed axial tomography scan – thoracic spine; Computed tomography scan – thoracic spine; CT scan – upper backHow the Test is PerformedYou will lie on a narrow table that slides into the center of the CT scanner.Once you are inside the scanner, the machines x-ray beam rotates around you. (Modern “spiral” scanners can perform the exam without stopping.)A computer creates separate images of the body area, called slices. These images can be stored, viewed on a monitor, or printed on film. Three-dimensional models of the body area can be created by stacking the slices together.You must be still during the exam, because movement causes blurred images. You may be told to hold your breath for short periods of time.The scan should take only 10-15 minutes.How to Prepare for the TestCertain exams require a special dye, called contrast, to be delivered into the body before the test starts. Contrast helps certain areas show up better on the x-rays.Contrast can be given in several ways.It may be delivered through a vein (IV) in your hand or forearm.It may be given as an injection into the space surrounding the spinal cord.If contrast is used, you may also be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4-6 hours before the test.advertisementTell your doctor nurse if you have ever had a reaction to contrast. You may need to take medicines before the test in order to safely receive this substance.Before receiving the contrast, tell your health care provider if you take the diabetes medication metformin (Glucophage).You may need to take extra steps if you take this medicine.Find out if the CT machine has a weight limit if you weigh more than 300 pounds. Too much weight can cause damage to the scanner.You will be asked to remove jewelry and wear a hospital gown during the study.How the Test will FeelSome people may find it uncomfortable to lie on the hard table.Contrast given through an IV may cause a slight burning feeling, a metallic taste in the mouth, and a warm flushing of the body. These feelings are normal and will often go away within a few seconds.Why the Test is PerformedCT rapidly creates detailed pictures of the thoracic or middle part of the spine. The test may help diagnose or detect:Birth defects of the spine in childrenBone fracture in the spineArthritis of the spineTumor of the spineOther spinal injuryThoracic CT scan can also be used during or after an x-ray of the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots (myelography) or an x-ray of the disk (discography).Normal ResultsResults are considered normal if the thoracic region is normal in appearance.What Abnormal Results MeanAbnormal results may be due to:Birth defects of the spineBone problemsFractureHerniated (slipped) diskInfection of the spineNarrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis)ScoliosisRisksRisks of CT scans include:Exposure to radiationAllergic reaction to contrast dyeCT scans expose you to more radiation than regular x-rays. Having many x-rays or CT scans over time may increase your risk for cancer. However, the risk from any one scan is small. You and your health care provider should weigh this risk against the benefits of getting a correct diagnosis for a medical problem.Some people have allergies to contrast dye.The most common type of contrast given into a vein contains iodine. If a person with an iodine allergy is given this type of contrast, nausea or vomiting,sneezing, itching,or hives may occur.If you absolutely must be given such contrast, your health care provider may give you antihistamines (such as Benadryl) or steroids before the test.The kidneys help remove iodine out of the body. Those with kidney disease or diabetes may need to receive extra fluids after the test to help flush the iodine out of the body.Rarely, the dye may cause a life-threatening allergic response called anaphylaxis. Notify the scanner operator right away if you have any trouble breathing. Scanners come with an intercom and speakers, so the operator can hear you at all times.ConsiderationsThe thoracic CT scan is good for evaluating large herniated disks, but it can miss smaller ones. This test can be combined with a myelogram to get a better image of the nerve roots and find smaller injuries.advertisementReferencesRJ Gardocki, FX Camillo. Other disorders of the spine.
