Factory Shutdown Plans Give GM Leverage in Labor Talks - WSJ
However, the largest U.S. auto maker by sales could still resume work at some of the factories or shift jobs to other U.S. plants if it is able to win enough cost-savings in other areas. GM plans to dangle that prospect during labor talks, aiming to walk back a 2015 deal that gave workers pay increases and restored other benefits cut in previous agreements, people familiar with the company’s thinking say.

The timing of the announcement, well in advance of the contract’s expiration in September, is intended to put the UAW on the defensive, shifting the focus of next year’s negotiations to saving jobs, these people say.

Hippo52, PokerHigh join forces to strengthen their position - CalvinAyre.com
A new poker gaming portal in India is emerging. Hippo52.com, a site operated by Ultimate Gaming Technologies Pvt. Ltd out of Delhi, and poker portal PokerHigh will be combined to improve the position of the two companies and help them compete against larger players in the industry.

Hippo52.com mentioned on its website the new endeavor, stating that it has merged with PokerHigh, a company that is operated by Quatumskill Gaming and Tech Pvt. Ltd., adding that player balances have already been transferred to accounts on PokerHigh. The merger reportedly involves 1,400 users of the Hippo52 website and will lead to more participation in offline events in India, as well as abroad.

Founder and Managing Director of PokerHigh, Mithun Rebello, stated of the merger, “Having been in the game from the early days, we’ve always believed that consolidation would be a natural next step for the industry in the years to come, and we saw this as a great opportunity to further cement our position in the market. Having collaborated with Hippo52 during multiple events in the past, we are now excited to work together as one unit with their combined expertise in offline poker and community engagement.”

Hippo52 founder Sumit Khurana added, “We have been watching the growth of online poker in India for some years now, and with this move we wish to offer even better experiences to our combined patrons and to set the ball rolling in our endeavour of making poker reach its true potential in India. PokerHigh has been known as one of the most fun brands out there for over 3 years now, and we are truly excited to be working together with them. The idea will be to focus on bringing recreational poker players into the main fold, through specially curated poker experiences at exotic destinations across the globe. These expeditions will be multi dimensional [sic] and will blend poker with other unique experiences.”

This isn’t the first time that the two sites have joined up. They have launched various offline skill gaming and poker events, including a recently concluded event that gave a few poker players a trip to Colombo, as well as a skill-gaming event that was organized by Brainduel Games in Delhi this past January.

Disney, Fox: Genting lawsuit has no merit - CalvinAyre.com
A few days ago, Genting Malaysia announced that it was suing the Walt Disney Company and Twenty-First Century Fox after the two decided to terminate Genting’s contract for the “Fox World” theme park at Resorts World Genting in Malaysia. The lawsuit specifies breach of contract and breach of “implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing” and seeks compensation of $1 billion. Fox and Disney have now issued their response to the lawsuit, calling it frivolous and without merit.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, California. In Fox’s statement, the company asserts that the allegations that Disney and forced the termination of the theme park was “simply made up.” Disney issued a separate statement, saying that the lawsuit is “utterly without merit.”

Genting believes that Disney could have forced the issue because of its anti-gambling stance. However, it has not been able to prove any evidence. On the other hand, not much information has been provided regarding why the company saw its contract prematurely cancelled. The only information was a statement sent to Bloomberg News from Fox that said that Genting had not met agreed-upon deadlines. The dispute has apparently been going on for the past several years.

A statement by Twentieth Century Fox Film, another defendant in the case, asserts, “The allegation that Disney, rather than Fox, finally decided to declare a default is simply made up.”

The theme park was meant to be a Fox-branded venue, a first for Fox. However, Disney is set to acquire 21st Century Fox assets for around $71.3 billion and, because Resorts World Genting contains a casino, it reportedly doesn’t want to get involved.

The day after the lawsuit was filed, shares in Genting dropped 16.7%. It has said that it has spent around $750 million on advancing the project. If the case is found to be valid, it’s possible that Genting could receive the theme park for free. Maybank Investment Bank Bhd believes that Genting could run the theme park minus the Fox branding, since it has experience in the field with its own theme park at Genting Highlands in Kuala Lumpur.

Melco Resorts Philippines set to redeem remaining notes - CalvinAyre.com
The Melco Resorts and Entertainment (Philippines) Corp (MRP) is preparing to redeem the remainder of an allocation of corporate secured notes. The notes offer a fixed rate of 5% and the company hopes to move $38.2-million worth in this ultimate round, according to a filing by the company with the Philippine Stock Exchange yesterday. The notes were issued in January 2014 by the company’s subsidiary, Melco Resorts Leisure (PHP) Corp. and have a maturity date of January 24, 2019.

Secured notes are a type of loan that is backed by the borrower’s assets. If the borrower defaults on the loan, the pledged assets could be sold to repay the debt. In business, they are typically issued to allow a business to expand its operations. In the event the expansion fails, the lender will take possession of the assets that were pledge to secure the loan, including any real estate and equipment.

The facility and security agreement for the notes will see Deutsche Bank AG, Manila Branch and Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. as the joint lead managers. The facility agent, paying agency, registrar and security trustee will be the Philippine National Bank – Trust Banking Group.

Last month, MRP announced that the company’s majority shareholder, MCO (Philippines) Investments Ltd., had initiated a tender offer in order to require the shares in the company that it didn’t already own. The new offering closed yesterday and the company reported that the price would be $0.138 per share, in line with previous announcements.

Initially, the plan was for MRP to become a private company, but the idea to follow through with being delisted was nixed last month. Instead, MCO Investments opted for an increase in its MRP stake, which would reportedly allow the company to expand on plans it had for MRP.

MRP is a subsidiary of Melco Resorts and Entertainment Ltd., a company that invests in casinos in Asia, and operates the City of Dreams Manila (CODM). CODM is located in Parañaque and is a 15-acre luxury integrated resort that was developed in cooperation with Belle Corporation. It originally opened as the Belle Grande Manila in 2014.

MCO Investments, through its subsidiaries, operates casino gaming resort facilities. It was previously known as MCE (Philippines) Investments Ltd and is a subsidiary of Melco Resorts and Entertainment.

Wade Phillips: Ebukam ‘had one of the greatest games ever’ against KC
The lack of an outside pass rush has been the single biggest weakness the Los Angeles Rams have, and the need for increased production from the Rams’ edge rushers has been talked about endlessly. Matt Longacre has been a disappointment and even found himself inactive for the game against the Chiefs last week, and the young guys have been inconsistent.
But second-year pro Samson Ebukam stepped up in a big way and was essential to the win over Kansas City, earning high praise from defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. During his press conference this week Phillips was asked about Ebukam’s development and declared he “had one of the greatest games ever” on Monday night.

the places you see while falling, by warsfeil
The neighbor’s cat is stuck in the tree. Dice is seven years old, invincible in the way that all children believe themselves to be, and he climbs to the top of the old tree, ignoring the way the weary branches creak underneath him. When the branches give way, the cat simply leaps to safety as Dice plummets down. In the brief moment before he hits the ground, he feels like he could free-fall forever.
