  • Global investors start $1.9 billion lawsuit against Norway

    By Stine Jacobsen OSLO (Reuters) - An Oslo court started to hear a $1.9 billion lawsuit by a group of international investors against Norway on Monday, in a case that challenges the country's reputation as a predictable place to do business with little political risk. Investors including Allianz , UBS , the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority and two Canadian pension funds are suing Norway over its decision to cut tariffs for using the Gassled pipeline network, arguing it was liable for the 15 billion crowns ($1.9 billion / £1.2 billion) in lost earnings they would suffer as a result through 2028. The firms, many of which bought into Gassled in 2011 through a 17 billion crown deal for state-controlled Statoil's 24 percent stake, argue the tariff cut benefits gas producers, the very firms that sold them their stakes.

  • Formula 1 - Mark Webber: I want F1 to be awesome again

    In Bahrain, over the race weekend, the Australian was frustrated to see his GP2 protégé Mitch Evans lose a potential podium finish because of that old bugbear, tyre management and he posted this rant on Twitter. “Actually, it wasn’t just that, because Mitch has benefited (from the tyre management situation) in the past and even had wins thanks to it, so it wasn’t just that I was talking about,” Webber said. In case you hadn’t noticed, as from this season, GP2 has mimicked Formula 1 and introduced the Downforce Reduction System, aimed at facilitating overtaking and this is another aspect of the sport that Webber, a nine times Grand Prix winner, is not keen on.

  • Beware the boars

    Indeed, since the first wild boar arrived in the Forest – apparently let loose by a farmer a decade ago – the population has grown from a few pairs to at least 1,000 and is still soaring. The Forestry Commission, which administers the 42-square mile area west of Gloucester last year culled around 350, but with an average litter size of six piglets, plentiful food and no predators, the boar are winning the demographic battle hands down. Domestic gardens, parks and sports grounds are being regularly wrecked by boar rooting for food, and several car crashes, including one in which a 47-year-old man was killed, have been blamed on the creatures. Each week brings new scare stories of boar encounters, and as the mood darkens in the forest, many fear it is only a matter of time before a human is seriously injured.
