C&WW has also recently been subject to speculation over another possible bid from US telecoms giant AT&T.However, C&WW pared gains on the stock market later yesterday, as analysts remained largely sceptical over the strategic sense of a bid from Singapore Telecom, particularly as the group has limited UK operations.“We see limited scaleability of the business if Singapore Telecom does acquire C&W, with the majority of its revenues linked to UK-based operations,” said Citigroup’s Arthur Pineda.Last year, about a quarter of C&WW’s £2.27bn in revenue came from its operations in India, the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia. In July, C&WW investors were rocked by a first quarter update from the group, which admitted that the withdrawal of large quantities of money from UK public sector budgets in the wake of the new government’s emergency Budget would hit trading in the current year. The stock later eased closing down 0.2 per cent at 73.6p.

Tags: NULL Axa profit down on life sale losses FRENCH insurer Axa saw its 2010 profits cut by almost a quarter after losing €1.64bn (£1.38bn) from the sale of part of its UK life business last year, it said yesterday.Profit fell 24 per cent to €2.75bn from €3.6bn after it sold the majority of its life business to closed-end life manager Resolution for £2.75bn last June to better focus its UK work.But Europe’s second-biggest insurer said it would raise its dividend 25 per cent to €0.69 this year due to a better business environment in 2011.“2010 was also characterised by significant strategic moves and organisational changes,” said Axa chief executive Henri de Castries. Axa’s group revenues were flat at €90.97bn, as were its underlying earnings, which rose to €3.88bn from €3.85bn in 2009.

Currently, the figure stands at over £13,500 and we fully expect to have exceeded £14,000 by the time all the money comes in.”“The care Marie Curie, our nominated company charity since 2005, provides terminally-ill patients is simply unbelievable and has touched all those who have given so generously for this worthwhile cause. I cannot express enough my appreciation to all of our corporate sponsors and individual donors, to the support staff who accompanied us on our journey and, above all, to the riders who gave freely of their time and energy in completing the distance.”The Leasedrive Velo team started from London on Thursday June 19 and rode 68 miles to Folkestone. The longest day between Calais and Abbeville saw the team cover the greatest distance, 75 miles, and the most challenging terrain through the ‘Seven Valleys’. Day three to Beauvais was 59 miles while the 48 miles of the final day saw a total distance covered of 250 miles between Parliament Square, London and the Arc de Triomphe, Paris.Corporate sponsors were Leasedrive Velo, Thrifty Car & Van Rental, Dick Lovett, Reach, CHP Alfa, KFC, National Mobile Windscreens, Kwik-Fit Fleet, Intelligent Data Systems and Total Accident Management.The riders were Roddy Graham, Ivor Johnson, Karen Bowen, Paul Newman, Matt Lenton, Patrick Lucas, Jeremy Snook, Chris Snook, Mark Ley, John Wilson, Edward Pigg, Richard Boyce, Richard Simmonds and Warren Calvert. The support crew consisted of Martyn Keefe, Steve Edwards, Sarah Simmonds and Claire Aitkinson.Last-minute online donations to the Leasedrive Velo London to Paris Bike Ride in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care can be made by visitinghttp://www.justgiving.com/london-to-parisAlternatively, please send a cheque made payable to ‘Marie Curie Cancer Care’ to Roddy Graham, Commercial Director at Leasedrive Velo, Crowthorne House, Nine Mile Ride, Wokingham, Berkshire RG403GA.– Ends-Notes to Editors:Marie Curie Cancer CareMarie Curie Cancer Care is one of the UK’s largest charities.

“We are not your Halloween costumes! We are not your dime store Indians!” a speaker shouted from the bandstand on the Santa Fe Plaza this Indigenous Peoples Day in Santa Fe, N.M., as a colonialist obelisk was taken down by Puebloan activistsTo see people still celebrating Columbus in the time of COVID immediately brings to mind the smallpox and other pandemics which swept this hemisphere from ocean to ocean as it was stolen following 1492.Spanish conquistadors and European colonial invaders carried disease to every corner of this hemisphere. In 1492 no one in the so-called “western” hemisphere had immunity to European and Asian diseases, which had jumped species from rats and domesticated herd animals to humans. It is estimated that some 112 million people were living in this hemisphere in 1491: Smallpox, flu, measles and other imported infectious disease vectors then killed 80 million to 100 million people in 100 years. Christopher Columbus’ real name was Cristóbol Colón; he was a Spanish pirate. The Spanish Queen would have executed him had she known. There is no evidence he was ever in Genoa. When he landed in 1492 in the Bay of Pigs (Playa Giron) in Cuba, he immediately wrote to the queen to advocate enslaving Native peoples. Columbus cut off the arms of Taíno men to feed the war dogs he used to terrorize Indigenous people.Mercenary conquistadorsFrom contemporary descriptions of conquistadors Cristóbol Colón, Hernán Cortés, Francisco Pizarro, Juan de Oñate, Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and Hernando de Soto, we can characterize them as completely out-of-control mercenary forces. They committed murder, rape, torture and robbery on a global level, followed by enslavement of whole Indigenous nations. Pizarro took Inca leader Atahualpa hostage, and melted down his ransom of seven tons of gold and 13 tons of silver, all of which was artwork and jewelry. Some $129 million in gold was shipped to Spain every year. In the largest colonial rebellion against Spain, the Incas melted gold and poured it down the conquistadors’ throats. De Soto’s expedition group traveled from Florida across the Mississippi to Arkansas, all the way following existing Indigenous roads and paths from Native town to Native city — stealing food and burning storehouses, fields and towns. They enslaved local Indigenous people and burned them alive if they made trouble. De Soto cut off their hands if they didn’t lead him to gold.De Soto used his imported war hogs to roust people out of fields as they invaded: Smallpox and seven other disease vectors living in the guts of de Soto’s pigs spread disease everywhere. The great Mississippian culture fell in a few short years as a result of these new diseases. Only mounds remain of their vast earthen pyramids. After Oñate worked thousands of people to death in the gold and silver mines of Zacatecas, he left Mexico to take over the vast lands to the north, which he named New Mexico — home of the great Puebloan cities, as well as the Diné and Apache Nations. Oñate attacked Acoma Pueblo in 1599, when it rose up against the settlers. His men killed 800 children, women and men. Oñate ordered every man over 25 to have a foot cut off and sentenced each to 25 years of slavery. Females and males between 12 and 25 years of age got 25 years of slavery. Sixty young girls were sent to priests in Mexico, never to return to their homes. In New Mexico in 1680, the Pueblos rebelled and burnt out the Spanish and kicked them out for 12 years — the second largest anti-Spanish colonial rebellion. No one erects a statue to Oñate to this day without protest, and this year his statues were brought down across New Mexico by Puebloan activists.Coronado wandered all over the Southwest in search of gold; he attacked, occupied and burned the Pueblo towns he encountered — Puebloan territory had then extended all the way into Texas. Decimated Indigenous nations faced unending waves of Spanish, French, English and then American settlers — all mean with greed and emboldened by racist propaganda — coming to steal the land and create wealth. Smallpox blankets were used to steal lands to build the United States.Before 1492Historically, Indigenous societies were gardening and farming societies. Over one half of all food crops in the world, by numbers of species and by volume, were domesticated by Indigenous people in this hemisphere — tomatoes, squashes, beans, chocolate, pumpkins, pineapples, cassava, avocados, papaya, quinoa, amaranth, acai, chiles and many more. Maize corn was the world’s first selectively bred food grain. Varieties of maize corn were cropped from Mexico up and down the East Coast, all over the Mississippi River valley and the Southwest. In the Chilca Canyon of Peru, 10,000 years ago, the potato was domesticated — hundreds of varieties for every altitude from the high peaks to the valleys. Incan civilization grew from ancient farming communities, which held land in common. Incas distributed stored supplies from public warehouses to the sick, elderly, poor, widows and the disabled. Cusco had a population of 50,000-100,000, and there were many smaller cities and towns. And across this continent, people lived communally in small villages and cities; most of those societies still had a matrilineal structure. The precolonial history and cultures of Indigenous societies are what Indigenous Peoples Day celebrates. This is all stolen land. The struggle continues. This is the significance of Indigenous Peoples Day. Tromblay’s heritage is Huron nonstatus and mixed Southeast nations undocumented.Resources:“Columbus: In The Bay Of Pigs,” John Curl, 1988, Homeward Press“Guns, Germs, and Steel,” Jared Diamond, 1997, Norton“Stolen Continents: The New World Through Indian Eyes,” Ronald Wright, 1992, Houghton Mifflin“More Than Bows & Arrows,” documentary film, 1978, Conrad W.
