Beyond GDP: How to Measure Progress
 
03:04
The European Commission published today a Communication on how to measure progress in a changing world. It proposes to go beyond the best known measure of economic activity, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and to develop more inclusive indicators that provide a more reliable knowledge base for better public debate and policy-making. Stavros Dimas, Commissioner in charge of Environment, explained in a press conference that GDP was not intended to be a measure of wellbeing and does not pick-up on issue that are vitally important to the quality of lifes such as a clean environment, social cohesion or even how happy people are. The Communication outlines five actions and among them it proposes a pilot of an environmental index that will assess progress in the main fields of environmental policy and protection. The index will cover areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, loss of natural landscapes, air pollution, water use and waste generation. 00:00:00 Title 00:00:05 General view of the press conference room 00:00:10 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas, EC Member in charge of Environment: GDP is a rigorous indicator for economic purposes and it will continue to play a role in political decision making. But GDP is no more than an indicator of economic activity. It was not intended to be a measure of wellbeing, it does not pick-up on issue that are vitally important to the quality of our lifes such as a clean environment, social cohesion or even how happy people are. 00:00:45 Cutaway journalist attending the press conference 00:00:50 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas: A pilot of an environmental index will be proposed in 2010 that will assess progress in the main fields of environmental policy and protection. The index will cover areas such as greenhouse gas emissions, loss of natural landscapes, air pollution, water use and waste generation. 00:01:12 Cutaway 00:01:18 SOUNDBITE (English) Elisabet Falemo, State Secretary to Andreas Carlgren, Swedish Minister for the Environment: The transformation to an eco-efficient economy requires other national indicators and tools in addition to GDP that provides better signals for policy makers regarding the path towards an eco-efficient economy. 00:01:35 Cutaway 00:01:42 SOUNDBITE (English) Stavros Dimas: An example: if a country cuts down its forest and sells its timber, this will increase its GDP, but in the medium to long term, destroying the natural capital which is not measured will not be beneficial for the country, for the environment or for the wellbeing of the people. 00:02:09 Cutaway 00:02:15 SOUNDBITE (English) Elisabet Falemo: I think that GDP is established rather well for what it stands for, but we need complementary systems. What it is important to know is that quality of life and welfare is not only material. And we need to put figures on even other qualities of life. In that way the GDP will not be the only way to measure the welfare. 00:02:52 Cutaway 00:02:58 End

Tommy Douglas CCF 50th Anniversary Speech on Health Care
 
01:16
Tommy Douglas speech 3 years before his death at the 50th anniversary of the founding of the CCF. From Democracy Now (http://www.democracynow.org) When you go back to your constituency and you run into somebody who says, Oh, its a good idea for you soft-hearted humanitarians, but we cant afford it, let me give you a simple statistic, which you can put down on a piece of paper and carry in your hand. And that is that our friends in the United States are spending nine percent of their gross national product—and they get a higher per capita gross national product than we do—they spend nine percent of their gross national product on healthcare, and 34 million of their people have no healthcare coverage. And in Canada, we spend seven percent of our gross national product, and every man, woman and child in Canada is covered under Medicare. If you want a two-tiered health program, then just continue the way were going. And I remind you that in this movement, we pledged ourselves fifty years ago that we would provide healthcare for every man, woman and child, irrespective of their color, their race or their financial status, and, by God, were going to do it!

The U.S. spends nearly 17 percent of its gross domestic product on health care, while Singapore spends about 4 percent of its own GDP. According to the World Health Organization, Singapore has one of the best health care systems. The countrys 4 million people are required to save a portion of each paycheck, which then goes into an interest-bearing savings account used to pay future medical bills.

VISIT: http://webcommentary.com/ The draft Treaty of Copenhagen, to be signed in mid-December 2009, would create an unelected world government with direct power over all financial and trading markets, and direct power to intervene over the heads of elected governments in the economic and environmental affairs of all nations that sign the Treaty. The word "government" actually appears in the Treaty as the first of three purposes of a huge, new, supranational bureaucratic entity that will have the power to require wealthier nations to redistribute up to 2% of their annual gross domestic product to third-world countries

Rebalancing the World Economy
 
04:01
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report. In September, the Group of 20 met in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was the third Group of 20 summit in less than a year. Leaders of the major developed and developing economies discussed ways to fix the world financial system. In April they had agreed to do everything necessary to prevent a collapse. This time they noted their success, but warned that the "process of recovery and repair remains incomplete." The presidents and prime ministers launched what they called a Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth. At the same time, they agreed to make the G20 the main group to guide international economic cooperation. For years that has been a job for the Group of 8: Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United States. But the world's economic power structure has changed. The G8 leaves out developing nations with big populations and growing economies like China, India and Brazil. In Pittsburgh, rich nations agreed to also give up some of their representation in the International Monetary Fund. And they called for more voting power for developing nations in the World Bank. Ghiyath Nakshbendi is a professor of international business at American University in Washington, D.C. He said the decision to cooperate on economic policy is important, given how much Gross Domestic Product the G20 represents. He said that when you talk about the G20, you are talking about nineteen countries plus the European Union that produce ninety-five percent of the G.D.P. in the world. Martin Edwards is an assistant professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey who has written about the I.M.F. He says increasing the influence of developing nations will increase the standing of the fund and the World Bank. But he notes that having more players at the table could also mean more disputes. In terms of financial reforms, experts say there is widespread support for some proposals to control risks. But others are unpopular in America and Britain. These include linking the pay of bankers to their bank's long-term performance. G20 leaders plan to meet next in Canada in June and in South Korea next November. They face many hard choices in the coming months. Professor Nakshbendi says the biggest question is to what extent are they willing to follow their own advice. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 09Oct2009)

Motivational Speaker "Behind the Scenes!"
 
03:03
http://www.bradmontgomery.com Military Speaker Home: http://www.bradmontgomery.com/testimonials/industries/government-speaker/ Brad Montgomery is a funny motivational speaker from Denver, Colorado. In this video Brad let's us peak behind the scenes on one of his recent jobs as a military motivational speaker for the Defense Acquisition University in Huntsville, Alabama. Brad speaks to all industries, but lately has been speaking to military audiences — and he loves it. Brad uses humor to motivate organizations to remember that Quality of Work Life (happiness) is directly related to Quality of Work Product. Happy workers make better workers. Besides... it's way more fun than the opposite. In this very funny program, Brad Montgomery creates a very fun "experience" where people laugh so hard their faces hurt. Then he connects that humor to using levity, lightheartedness and humor at work in order to increase morale, reduce the need for oversight, and — in the end — improve productivity. If there is one group that needs motivation now it is the military. These hard working men and women have such serious jobs that they NEED a reminder not only that laughter and levity is allowed... it's encouraged. Nothing saps morale more than stress. Often what military groups need most is a dose of Brad. Looking for a military speaker? A speaker for the Air Force?

Stockholm

Stockholm is the capital and the largest city of Sweden. It is the site of the national Swedish government, the Riksdag (parliament), and the official residence of the Swedish monarch as well as the prime minister. Since 1980, the monarch has resided at Drottningholm Palace outside of Stockholm and uses the Royal Palace of Stockholm as his workplace and official residence. As of 2009, the Stockholm metropolitan area is home to approximately 22% of Sweden's population, and contributes to 28% of Sweden's gross domestic product[citation needed]. Stockholm is the most populous city in Sweden with a population of 825,057 in the municipality (2009), 1.25 million in the urban area (2005), and 2 million in the metropolitan area (2009). Founded circa 1250, Stockholm has long been one of Sweden's cultural, media, political, and economic centres. Its strategic location on 14 islands on the south-central east coast of Sweden at the mouth of Lake Mälaren, by the Stockholm archipelago, has been historically important. Stockholm has been nominated by GaWC as a global city, with a ranking of Alpha-. In The 2008 Global Cities Index, Stockholm ranked 24th in the world, 10th in Europe, and first in Scandinavia. Stockholm is known for its beauty, its buildings and architecture, its abundant open water and many parks. It is sometimes referred to as Venice of the North. Stockholm is the second most visited city in the Nordic countries, with around one million visitors in 2006. ( source Wikipedia )

What Is the Genuine Progress Index
 
07:30
What is the Genuine Progress Index (GPI)? The GPI is a holistic measurement tool that government and communities can use to account for the real costs and benefits of economic activity. It counts beneficial activities as positive, and harmful activities as negative, and it provides a systematic way to integrate economic issues with environmental and social concerns. Why is the GPI important to Nova Scotians? •Using the GPI will enable us to make better decisions now and for the future. Properly valuing economic, social, environmental, human, and cultural assets means decisions will be made with our wellbeing in mind and in a way that leaves a better world for our children and grandchildren. •Using the GPI puts a value on things we say are most important, such as health, education, a clean environment, decent living standards, economic security, spending time with our family, feeling connected to our community, and our overall quality of life. The GPI also reports on how income is distributed and counts and puts a value on reducing the gap between rich and poor. •The GPI also measures the real costs of pollution, environmental degradation, crime, sickness, and risk factors like smoking, obesity, and physical activity—costs that are hidden in our conventional economic accounts. •The GPI is fully aligned with existing Nova Scotian government priorities and key policy documents, such as Opportunities for Sustainable Prosperity (an economic development strategy), Weaving the Threads (a social policy framework) and the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act (2007).

Obama Does it With A Flair - from iOwnTheWorld.com
 
00:39
From an idea by Personal Litmus and Mr. Pinko comes " Do It With A Flair," from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Ty to the creator of the original Joker animation. On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787 billion economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession.[139] The act includes increased federal spending for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives, and direct assistance to individuals,[140] which is being distributed over the course of several years. President Barack Obama signs the ARRA into law on February 17, 2009 in Denver, Colorado. Vice President Joe Biden stands behind him. In March, Obama's Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, took further steps to manage the financial crisis, including introducing the Public-Private Investment Program for Legacy Assets, which contains provisions for buying up to $2 trillion in depreciated real estate assets.[141] Obama intervened in the troubled automotive industry[142] in March 2009, renewing loans for General Motors and Chrysler to continue operations while reorganizing. Over the following months the White House set terms for both firms' bankruptcies, including the sale of Chrysler to Italian automaker Fiat[143] and a reorganization of GM giving the U.S. government a temporary 60% equity stake in the company, with the Canadian government shouldering a 12% stake.[144] In June 2009, dissatisfied with the pace of economic stimulus, Obama called on his cabinet to accelerate the investment.[145] He signed into law the Car Allowance Rebate System, known colloquially as "Cash for Clunkers", that had mixed results.[146][147][148] Although spending and loan guarantees from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department authorized by the Bush and Obama administrations totaled about $11.5 trillion, only $3 trillion had actually been spent by the end of November 2009.[149] However, Obama and the Congressional Budget Office predict that the 2010 budget deficit will be $1.5 trillion or 10.6% of the nation's gross domestic product (GDP) compared to the 2009 deficit of $1.4 trillion or 9.9% of GDP.[150][151] For 2011, the administration predicted the deficit will slightly shrink to $1.34, while the 10-year deficit will increase to $8.53 trillion or 80% of GDP.[152] Unemployment numbers rose briefly to as high as 10.1% in October 2009 (the highest since 1983)[153] before decreasing to 9.5% in June 2010.[154] In the first quarter of 2010, the U.S. economy expanded at a 2.7% pace[155] after growing at its fastest rate in six years in the fourth quarter, 5.7%.[156] In July 2010, the Federal Reserve expressed that although economic activity continued to increase, its pace had slowed and its Chairman, Ben Bernanke, stated that the economic outlook was "unusually uncertain."[157] The Congressional Budget Office and a broad range of economists credit Obama's stimulus plan for economic growth.[158][159] The CBO released a report stating that the stimulus bill increased employment by 1--2.1 million,[159][160][161][162] while conceding that "It is impossible to determine how many of the reported jobs would have existed in the absence of the stimulus package."[163] Although an April 2010 survey of members of the National Association for Business Economics showed an increase in job creation (over a similar January survey) for the first time in two years, 73% of the 68 respondents believed that the stimulus bill has had no impact on employment.[164] Within a month of the 2010 midterm elections, Obama announced a compromise deal with the Congressional Republican leadership that included a temporary, two-year extension of the 2001 and 2003 income tax rates, a one-year payroll tax reduction, continuation of unemployment benefits, and a new rate and exemption amount for estate taxes.[165] The compromise overcome opposition from some in both parties, and the resulting $858 billion Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 passed with bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress before Obama signed it on December 17, 2010

Obama in 03 (Uncut): Id Like to See a Single Payer Health Care Plan
 
00:54
I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And thats what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And thats what Id like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House. Editor's note: The original Naked Emperor News piece that includes an edited version of this clip can be found in the related links section below along with the YouTube video posted by the White House in response.

Former Mexican pres. talks immigration at UNM

former mexican president vicente fox has some new ideas about reducing the flow of illegal immigrants across the border - and he shared them today with an audience at unm. stuart dyson was there. he's here now with what fox had to say. stu? fox says he's not in favor of open borders - but he does believe that higher wages for mexican workers would minute thumbnail 05:05 pm keep more of them in mexico - who's gonna pay for it? - hang on to your wallet! fox was president of mexico for the firssix years of the century - now advocating a sort of european union deal for mexico - the u.s. - and canada - each nation chips in two percent of its gross national product to help out the poorest partner - that's mexico by a long shot. fox says it would help keep mexican workers and their families at home instead of risking everything to cross the border into the u.s. " they are only coming to look for a job - to look for better income - to make money - and better living for their family - it is not easy for them to take that decision." the former coca cola executive also says mexico is changing its tune when it comes to the role of women in society. " in latin america we lost a lot during the 20th century by relegating women back to the kitchen - this is then the century of minute thumbnail 05:06 pm women." fox's talk was part of unm's lobo reading experience program. " he was really a realist - one thing i got from vicente fox - in layman's terms he just cut to the chase - he didn't sugarcoat it - he was like a ross perot." not everybody was happy with the vicente fox show at unm - coming up at six - who's upset and why - back to you.

MaximsNewsNetwork: UN DRUG TRAFFICKING & CRIME IN AFRICA: UNTV - UNODC
 
03:00
MaximsNewsNetwork: 08 December 2009 - UNTV - United Nations: Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says drug traffickers undermine the rule of law and in some countries the huge profits generated through drug trafficking can rival their Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The Security Council today called for greater international cooperation in fighting drug trafficking, with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon terming it a leading threat to global peace and security. So far, cooperation between governments is lagging behind cooperation between organized crime networks, he told the 15-member body at the start of a day-long debate. He said that drug trafficking is fuelling brutal insurgencies in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Myanmar, spreading violence in West Africa, Central Asia, Central America and the Caribbean and threatening to reverse UN peacebuilding efforts in Afghanistan, Haiti, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Sierra Leone and elsewhere. Drug trafficking is evolving into an ever graver threat that is affecting all regions of the world, Ban warned, calling for sustained political will and significant resources to counter the trade, which in some countries generates huge profits that can rival their Gross Domestic Product ( GDP ). Ban said that the, trans-national nature of the threat meant that no country could face this problem alone and that the fight required a comprehensive international approach based on a strong sense of shared responsibility. The United Nations Drugs and Crime (UNODC) chief Antonio Maria Costa underscored the, new worrying development in West and East Africa and across the Sahara . He said the recent discovery of seven laboratories in Guinea showed that West Africa was also becoming a producer of synthetic drugs and crystal cocaine refined from pasta basica or base paste. Costa said cocaine was pouring into the west and tons of Afghan heroin was trafficked annually into the east, and that this was causing a dramatic increase in drug addiction, mainly heroin injections. This was spreading HIV, he said, and urged donors to help with badly needed drug facilities. And because of the dramatic situation in Somalia , the region was becoming a, free economic zone for all sorts of trafficking.

Exercise in zero G - motionlab in space part 1
 
01:21
We created a special custom MotionLab product for space for NASA and the Canadian Space Agency. Now used on the International Space Station. NASA was looking for a system that augments the exercise experience and captures psychological and physiological measures while the individual crew-member is participating in prescribed exercise regimens. This virtual, interactive system will serve as a countermeasure by enhancing the exercise experience. BACKGROUND Exploration missions will bring new challenges. Astronauts will be living and conducting remote operations in a confined and isolated environment (spacecraft) as well as confined quarters (habitat) for longer periods of time, outside of Low Earth Orbit. As the length of the mission increases, the astronauts may experience cumulative or chronic stress over an extended duration of time. This may have a negative impact on their mental health or behavioral health, or on the functioning and performance of the spaceflight team, and their interactions with ground support or others. One consideration is that a system should augment the exercise experience and capture psychological and physiological measures while the individual crew-member is participating in prescribed exercise regimens. This virtual, interactive system will serve as a countermeasure by enhancing the exercise experience. This is a new approach to enhancing the behavioral health and performance of crews during long duration exploration mission. Current technology is available to develop an interactive physical and psychological system to support an individualized system. The goal of this Challenge is to conceive of an interactive flexible system that can enhance the exercise experience for long space flights. The solution concentrates on what equipment and processes would be required to set up such a system given the limited space and weight requirements on a spacecraft. MotionLabHD is a special DVD that you watch while you are on your treadmill, exercise bicycle, or rowing machine. But this is an oversimplification. MotionLabHD represents a profound scientific breakthrough in mental, physical and technical conditioning, using rich inspirational media and sophisticated autogenic training techniques. Coaches know that students learn skills best from being mentored by experts; by following athletes and imprinting perfect movement over time. MotionLabHD is a rapid means to improve technique in a given sport. Choose from a wide selection of workouts, spectacular locations and sport modes: Run the West Coast trail in the Pacific Rim National park, through old growth forest; Trek along the sea cliffs of Gross Morne park in Newfoundland; Try snow-shoeing and Nordic skiing in the Laurentains; Attend a group trail run in Gatineau hills or a solo run in the leaves during fall colours; Experience a marathon with 10,000 runners; Mountain-bike the national-championship race-course with competitors; Kayak lakes and rivers; Pre-visualize in an Olympic cross country ski race; Ride through the countryside on your bicycle; Hike to the top of a volcano; Traverse a Rocky Mountain glacial pass; Stroll the boardwalks over paradise meadows, or Traverse an endless beach at sunset. Filmed in high-definition in first and third person perspectives using trademark steadicam techniques, and Recorded in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, for a controlled positive virtual reality experience more life-like than you could have imagined it. The experience will leave you breathless. It is what Astronauts are using now on the International space station, as a vital physical and mental countermeasure for long-term missions, and Olympic athletes choose to fine-tune their conditioning in human kinetic labs.

Hi,my friends. The next country is Finland. Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe. It borders Sweden on the west, Russia on the east, and Norway on the north, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital city is Helsinki. Around 5.3 million people reside in Finland, with the majority concentrated in the southern part of the country. It is the eighth largest country in Europe in terms of area and the most sparsely populated country in the European Union. The native language for most of the population is Finnish, a member of the Finno-Ugric language family most closely related to Estonian, and is one of only four official EU languages not of Indo-European origin. The other official language of Finland, Swedish, is the mother tongue of 5.5 percent of the population. Finland is a democratic, parliamentary republic with a mostly Helsinki-based central government and local governments in 348 municipalities. A total of a million residents live in Greater Helsinki area (including Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa) and a third of the country's GDP is produced there. Other major cities include Tampere, Turku, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Kuopio and Lahti. Finland was historically a part of Sweden and from 1809 an autonomous Grand Duchy within the Russian Empire. Finland's declaration of independence from Russia in 1917 was followed by a civil war, wars against the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, and a period of official neutrality during the Cold War. Finland joined the United Nations in 1955, the OECD in 1969, and the European Union in 1995 and participates in the Eurozone. Finland has been ranked the second most stable country in the world, in a survey based on social, economic, political, and military indicators. Finland has good results in many international comparisons of national performance such as the share of high-technology manufacturing, public education, health care, the rate of gross domestic product growth, and the protection of civil liberties.

Hi,my friends. ;D The next country is ISRAEL. Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world's only predominantly Jewish state with a population of about 7.37 million people, of which approximately 5.57 million belong to the majority Jewish ethnoreligious group.

Somali Pirate Attacks Point To Need For Somalia Aid
 
02:28
http://zennie2005.blogspot.com -- http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/abraham/index?blogid=95 -- Today, Easter Sunday, an after an affair that lasted for several days, American sea Captain Richard Phillips was rescued after NAVY Seal Snipers took three precision shots and killed three pirates from Somalia. In what can be described as a "growth industry" pirating in Somalia is a function of the country's lack of a government, weak economy, little military funding, and lack of financial aid from the World. In order to stop these attacks, the people of Somalia themselves must be helped. Conservative blogs and websites like "HotAir" have unintelligently called for us to "bomb" the pirates, but such saber-rattling will only kill innocent women and children. In other words, "American Machismo" worked to rescue the captain, but it will not work for the resolution of this problem. What will work is increasing aide to Somalia and helping them establish a central government but from a distance, not via invasion. Somalia has been without a true central government since 1991, and that country's civil war. (And the United States doesn't need another incursion into that country, or for that matter another situation where American solidiers are killed, which were the events captured in a movie called Black Hawk Down.) We can't afford to take on the task now. But we can work with the United Nations and other countries impacted by piracy to improve the Somali economy. Somalia is poor. According to the CIA, its' Gross Domestic Product is just over $2 billion, and the average life expectancy is just 47 years old. That's right: 47 years old. So when the average Somalian hears that a pirate's making as much as a share of $22 million for a heist, that's attractive. Indeed, the BBC reports that Somalian pirates are "living the high life" becoming very wealthy even by American standards in a country that's very poor by the World's standards. So much so is the economy a problem and piracy attractive that recruiting participants has become easier over the years.

Australian Market Report of October 9: Upbeat US Job Data and Consumer Spending
 
03:47
Overnight the US stocks closed higher on the positive Alcoa earnings and better-than-expected weekly jobless claims and consumer spending. Investors were also encouraged by the US retailers' first same-store sales gains in more than a year. Yesterday the encouraging job data pushed the local market to its highest in a year. The benchmark S&P/ASX200 index was 1.6 per cent higher, or 72.9 points, to 4768.6 points; the broader All Ordinaries index gained 67.5 points, or 1.4 per cent, to 4763.3. Meanwhile, the Australian dollar hit a fresh 14 month high of 90.15 US cents in the minutes after the ABS data was published. Key Economic Facts and Figures The Australian Bureau of Statistics said the unemployment rate in September fell to 5.7 per cent from 5.8 per cent in previous month. The better-than-expected result, as a sign of economy recovery, could give the Australian central bank stronger confidence to further raise its official interest rate in November. Treasury Secretary Ken Henry has warned there could be a further reduction of 100,000 jobs and a further detraction of 1.5 per cent from GDP if the Federal Government's stimulus scheduled to impact in 2010/11 was cancelled. Government's next forecast will likely include stronger forecasts for gross domestic product growth and a peak unemployment rate lower than the 8.5 per cent forecast in the time of the budget. M&A News Australian iron ore explorer United Minerals Corp (ASX:UMC) is expected to announce that it has received a takeover offer from BHP Billiton (ASX:BHP), which is tipped as a potential suitor. The expected offer comes after the A$27.7 million deal with China Railways Materials Commercial Corp to acquire 11.4 per cent stake in United Minerals. United Minerals on Friday requested a suspension in trade of its shares pending an announcement on a potential change of control transaction. Polaris Metals NL (ASX:POL) said in a statement on Friday neither of the takeover offers proposed by Lion-Asia Resources and Mineral Resources (ASX:MIN) is "clearly superior". Polaris shares are currently trading on ASX at or slightly above the A$0.60 per share offered by Lion-Asia. Babcock & Brown Infrastructure (ASX:BBI) yesterday launched a A$1.8 billion recapitalisation plan aimed at addressing the company's A$1.2 billion of debt. Canada based asset management specialist Brookfield will emerge with a cornerstone shareholding up to 40 per cent. Brookfield will take 100 per cent of PD Ports in the UK, and BBI will also spin off Australian Energy Transmission and Distribution and Cross Sound Cable. Consumer goods company GUD Holdings Limited (ASX:GUD) said it intends to make an off-market takeover offer for all the shares it does not already own in Breville Group (ASX:BRG). GUD is offering all Breville shareholders one GUD share for every 4 Breville shares. The offer values Breville at A$322 million. Important Corporate News The big four banks have raised their standard variable mortgage rates by the same amount as the Reserve Bank's 25 basis points increase on Tuesday. The ANZ (ASX:ANZ) and Westpac (ASX:WBC) will increase the rate to 6.06 per cent while NAB (ASX:NAB) and Commonwealth Bank's (ASX:CBA) rate will rise to 5.99 per cent. Elders Limited (ASX:ELD) said it will not participate in the Forest Enterprises Australia (ASX:FEA) capital raising. Elders holds a 31.1 per cent equity interest in FEA through its wholly owned subsidiary. As a result, Elders' FEA interest will be diluted from 31.1 per cent to approximately 13.5 per cent
