Plastics boss dreams of cheap gas

“We need to keep a pulse in the business and get past the ‘death valley’ that is immediately in front of us. We will need direct support to do this,” he said.

The firm is the only polyethylene manufacturer in Australia and has about 1000 employees and contractors working at its factories in Victoria and New South Wales. It produces plastics for food packaging, such as milk bottles, and for the automotive, water, mining and waste-management industries.

The manufacturing sectors the government wants firmly established within a decade include resources and critical minerals, food and beverages, medical products, recycling and clean energy, defence and space.

The Prime Minister placed a particular emphasis last week on sovereign security after the coronavirus pandemic exposed shortcomings in the supply of critical goods.

‘Home ground disadvantage’

“We are pleased to see the obvious choice of food, chemicals and plastics as priorities … and the

One Powerful Visualization To Be The Boss Of Your Business

I remember a seminal moment in my entrepreneurial journey when I crossed over from being completely at the mercy of my business—as well as the economy, the seasons, and other people’s business referrals—to becoming the boss of my business.

It had taken me years of painstaking effort, ingenuity, and experience before I had finally created the kind of business that worked FOR me instead of one that was running me ragged just to stay afloat. 

And achieving success my way came with its own level of satisfaction; It felt amazing that I finally had complete control over who I worked with, how much I charged, and how many hours I worked. I had built the confidence that I could make as much money as I wanted and grow my business in any number of directions of my choosing.

Banijay Rights Boss Cathy Payne Unveils Distribution Strategy, ‘Black Mirror’ Future (EXCLUSIVE)

When Banijay closed its $2.2 billion takeover of Endemol Shine earlier this summer, it became the largest independent production player outside the U.S. The formation of the super-group, during a pandemic no less, raised questions about how it might leverage a monster 88,000-hour catalogue, and what its plans were for super-brands like Endemol Shine drama “Black Mirror” and Banijay’s iconic “Survivor” format.

In her first interview since assuming leadership of Banijay’s distribution arm, Banijay Rights, industry veteran Cathy Payne tells Variety that the combined business hopes to be “the world’s best producer and distributor of content.” And while there’s certainly enough scale in the library to support its own VOD offering, OTT plans aren’t yet in the cards.

“At the moment, we’re focusing on production and distribution,” says Payne, who acknowledges that a clear brand proposition for consumers is needed for major SVOD platforms like Disney Plus and HBO Max

Cambridge Analytica’s former boss gets 7-year ban on being a business director

The former CEO of Cambridge Analytica, the disgraced data company that worked for the 2016 Trump campaign and shut down in 2018 over a voter manipulation scandal involving masses of Facebook data — has been banned from running limited companies for seven years.

Alexander Nix signed a disqualification undertaking earlier this month which the UK government said yesterday it had accepted. The ban commences on October 5.

“Within the undertaking, Alexander Nix did not dispute that he caused or permitted SCL Elections Ltd or associated companies to market themselves as offering potentially unethical services to prospective clients; demonstrating a lack of commercial probity,” the UK insolvency service wrote in a press release.

Nix was suspended as CEO of Cambridge Analytica at the peak of the Facebook data scandal after footage emerged of him, filmed by undercover reporters, boasting of spreading disinformation and entrapping politicians to meet clients’ needs.

Magnificent Mane the difference-maker as Liverpool show Chelsea who’s boss

If ever a goal could sum up a player, this was it.

Sadio Mane’s pass was poor. A giveaway. He was not happy with himself. 

So what did he do? Stand and sulk? Look around for a team-mate to blame? 

Not a bit of it.

Liverpool’s Senegalese star is not wired that way. Instead, Mane hared after the ball, following it as Kurt Zouma rolled it back to Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal. 

Kepa’s intention to pass out was good, but Mane read it, stretching out a foot to intercept, then firing the loose ball into the unguarded net with the goalkeeper scrambling.

Two-nil Liverpool. Game, set, match.

It took Mane only 10 minutes, either side of half-time, to bend this game to his will.

It was he who was fouled, crudely, by Andreas Christensen shortly before the interval, leading to the Chelsea defender’s dismissal.

Mane’s run, from out
