TWO members of Team Deane Triathlon Club have been selected to represent Great Britain at European championship events.

Matt Dewhurst has been picked for the Almere-Amsterdam Challenge Long Distance European Triathlon Championships in Holland in September.

Marko Mather will be in action earlier in the European Triathlon Championships in Kitzbühel, Austria in June.

Both events are organised by the European Triathlon Union (ETU) with Dewhurst’s event believed to be the oldest triathlon in the world after Hawaii.

The Austria event is a standard distance triathlon while the event Dewhurst is set to take part in is over a full Ironman distance.

The 25-year-old from Little Lever will be one of 100 triathletes from Great Britain taking part, although he says his presence at the event will be dependant upon securing funding.

“I’m very proud to have the opportunity to represent my country in such a great event and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Dewhurst.

“But it’s self-funded and quite expensive. You’re talking at least a grand for the flights, accommodation, race entry etc so I’m trying to see if anyone would want to help sponsor me.

“I don’t want to miss out on it so I’ve been in touch with a couple of companies and I’ve started a crowd funding page. If anyone is interested in helping they can email me at mdewhurst@live.co.uk.”

The former Little Lever High School pupil earned selected for his performance at the Ironman UK in Bolton last year, the only Ironman he has done.

“I did the Bolton Ironman and the Dubai Half Ironman in January,” he said.

“You apply to be selected for Amsterdam. You send your result from the UK Ironman and you have to be within a certain percentage of a time in your age group to be considered.

“I’m in the 25-29 age group and did the Bolton Ironman in 11 hours 30 minutes.

“It’s done in age groups and each age group has its own time that you have to be within a certain percentage of. Then they pick the best times.

“They picked the best 10 in our age group but there’ll be about 100 going from Great Britain overall. Hopefully it will all work out and I can go because I’d be proud to represent Team Deane there.

“I always race for Team Deane, I’m pretty proud of where I come from and I always like to wear the club vest.”

A spokesperson for Team Deane said: “Both Matt and Marko work so hard and deserve the recognition.

“We are all so excited and proud that they will be representing GB and Team Deane on an international level.”

PPG Industries Inc. Chief Executive Officer Michael McGarry said making a hostile bid for Akzo Nobel NV remains an option after the Dutch coatings and paint company spurned its sweetened $24.2 billion takeover offer.

“We are not taking any options off the table,” McGarry said in an interview Thursday, when asked whether a hostile bid could be ruled out. He spoke in Amsterdam following a press conference during which he highlighted the merits of bringing the two companies together. “Right now we are very interested in a collaborative discussion.”


McGarry in Amsterdam on March 23.

The CEO and Chief Financial Officer Vincent Morales also presented their case to analysts and said they were expecting to meet investors and government officials during a two-day visit to the Dutch capital where Akzo Nobel is based. They said they had received no word from their counterparts at Akzo on getting together.

“It was shocking that an enhanced proposal was turned down in basically a day,” McGarry said. The executives added they have been “surprised and disappointed” that Akzo hasn’t engaged in talks.

Pressure

PPG hadn’t approached the company for a meeting, Akzo spokesman Leslie McGibbon said earlier in the day. In rebuffing PPG’s offer Wednesday, the company said it didn’t warrant any engagement. A Dutch economy ministry official will meet with the PPG CEO on Friday, according to a government spokesman.

In piling more pressure on Akzo, McGarry is seeking to garner support from hedge funds and other shareholders frustrated with Chief Executive Officer Ton Buechner’s defiant stance against PPG’s overtures. Buechner maintains his plan to sell chemical operations to focus on coatings and paint will create more value and carries fewer risks than PPG’s sweetened 88.72 euro-a-share offer it received March 20.

Akzo shares rose 2.9 percent to 77.94 euros in Amsterdam.

Calls for Akzo to start talks with PPG intensified. Elliott Management Corp., the hedge fund founded by billionaire Paul Singer, said it was disappointed the Akzo CEO won’t meet with its U.S. competitor in Amsterdam.

“The fact that Mr. Buechner has so far failed to take this opportunity to meet and engage with PPG is hard to reconcile with his fiduciary duties,” Elliott said in a statement. “This failure to engage is made all the more disappointing by the clear message emanating from Akzo Nobel’s shareholder base.”

Biggest Investor

While PPG’s higher bid remains inadequate, it’s at a level where Akzo management should engage discussions, said Causeway Capital Management LLC, whose 6.8 percent stake makes it the largest investor according to Bloomberg data.

“We believe combining Akzo Nobel and PPG would create a stronger company, and lead to improved prospects for both shareholders and employees,” Causeway Chief Executive Officer Sarah Ketterer wrote in a March 22 letter to the boards of the Dutch company.

The PPG executives on Thursday said McGarry had met with Buechner about the offer, although not since Akzo twice rejected its overtures.

“When we approached them, at that time, they only had one strategy, which is to keep the whole company together,” McGarry said in the interview. “They reacted to us approaching them, that’s when they went on to say, ‘Oh we’re accelerating the divestiture of the special chemicals business,’ but in reality they had no desire to do that.”

‘Keep Everything’

PPG plans to “keep everything” in Akzo, although would do whatever regulators demanded to get a deal done, the CEO said.

PPG also responded to Dutch government and union criticism of potential for job losses following a takeover. Savings could be generated from areas other than job cuts, such as consolidating warehouses, McGarry said. He presented a video interview with a former Akzo worker who had joined PPG via a deal in 2012 as evidence a cultural fit is possible between the two companies.

“While Akzo management does not seem ready to engage PPG now, we’d note that Akzo may face shareholder pressure to do so should PPG make the offer more attractive from here,” Citigroup analysts including Andrew Benson said in a note.

PPG’s approach has sparked criticism from the Dutch government. Economy Minister Henk Kamp said Wednesday Akzo Nobel’s boards responded in a “powerful way” to PPG’s second bid, adding that a takeover would call into question headquarters in Amsterdam as well as research and development and other sites elsewhere in the Netherlands. He won’t be meeting with PPG executives, a government spokesman said.

Jobs Concern

Dutch politicians are “very concerned” about the PPG bid because of potential job losses in the event of a takeover, according to Buechner.

The Dutch provinces of Gelderland, Overijssel, Groningen and South-Holland won’t accept the invitation to talk with PPG management, Dutch news agency ANP reported, citing a spokesman for Gelderland.

McGarry first broached the idea of a deal with an unsuspecting Buechner over a coffee in Amsterdam, according to a person familiar with the matter. For the Akzo CEO, events took a surprise turn when McGarry laid out on the table a six-page document outlining the proposal.

“Since I was in high school, I have always been involved in making my community better,” said community activist Colette Pean. From working with health service centers and special need kids to being a part of the current Civil Rights Movement, Colette Pean is one of the founders of the December 12th Movement, Harriet Tubman-Fanny Lou Hamer Women’s Collective and Sistas’ Place. She has also done work in the communities of Brownsville and South Queens at the BF Southern Queens Association. 

Pean was born in Haiti but came to New York City at the age of two. She has lived in Manhattan, Queens and now Brooklyn. When she attended college, she worked for a Haitian radio station and the Barnard Organization of Black Women. She has a bachelor’s in biology from Barnard College and a master’s in public administration from Metropolitan College. She speaks French, Haitian Creole, Spanish and English.

She has traveled to many countries on human rights missions, including Cuba, Zimbabwe and Ghana. Currently she is the executive director of East New York Restoration LDC. According to Pean, the East New York Restoration LDC was founded to uplift the community through job development, small business, cultural events and health activities. “I enjoy working with the people and making a difference,” she said.

Always organizing, Pean can be seen in the background at events or taking the mic to inform an audience about the cause at hand. She has been a part of many events, from organizing essential supplies for the people in New Orleans after Katrina, to helping to host breast cancer awareness efforts, to fighting police brutality, to helping supply clean water for Haiti after the 2010 earthquake.

Much of her work is done with the Brooklyn-based, local, nationally and internationally focused non-governmental organization, the December 12th Movement. Pean says the December 12th Movement’s mission is, and always has been, to bring awareness to Black people and solutions to the institutionalized wrongdoing by governments visited upon targeted Black communities. This organization focuses on the Black community with issues such as education, racism, reparations and health care services. “It is important to join organizations like the D12th movement,” said Pean. “Organizations like these are beneficial to the Black community because they are focused on making our neighborhoods more efficient and self-reliant. Especially with President Donald Trump being in office, instead of watching him destroying our communities, we should unity and join organizations.” As the founder member of The Harriet Tubman-Fannie Lou Hamer Women’s Collective, Pean told the AmNews, their main focus is to promote Black culture and historical events.

After the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Pean and members of the December 12th Movement provided supplies to the earthquake victims. “I felt like it was important to help the families in Haiti,” said Pean. “Not only is it my home country, but people are suffering and we should continue to provide supplies to them if we can.”

According to the online Encyclopaedia Britannica, more than 300,000 people were affected by the earthquake. Those who survived the earthquake were displaced from their homes and lost everything. Pean said the international grassroots community pulled together to send aid and supplies. Although East New York Restoration is her day—and sometimes evening—job, Pean’s every spare minute is spent at Sistas’ Place, the community cafe located in Bedford-Stuyvesant (456 Nostrand Ave. and Jefferson Street). This jazz cafe has been open for 21 years. Their mission is to keep jazz in the community. This very Thursday, March 23, Pean said that at Sistas’ Place at 6.30 p.m., the December 12th Movement is having a reception for Zimbabwe’s delegates to the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women.

A showing of the film “The Birth of a Nation,” depicting the life of revolutionary Nat Turner, will be followed by an open discussion on the lessons learned from Nat Turner and the Black peoples’ ongoing struggle for freedom in the 21st century. For more information, call the December 12th Movement at 718-398-1766.

At Sistas’ Place Saturday, March 24, Lil Phillips and her band will be performing. There will be two sets, at 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Thursday, March 30, 2017, Pean and the rest of the December 12th Movement, along with The Choice Campaign, will sponsor a free showing of “The Birth of a Nation at 7 p.m. at the All Souls Episcopal Church, 88 St. Nicholas Ave. at 114th Street in Harlem

Pean said, “I just enjoy serving my community, bring supplies, information and encouragement during times when it is easy to be discouraged. We know that the power is within us. All our work is to help us realize all of our potential.”

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Only 37% say they approve of President Donald Trump’s job performance, with 56% saying they do not, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

That’s a few points lower than his standing earlier in March, when 41% said they were fans of his presidency.

Just 4-in-10 voters say they think Trump cares about average Americans. That’s compared to about 57% of Americans who feel he does not, a reminder of his unpopularity during the opening months of his presidency. The 40% of respondents said he does care about average people marks a four-point drop from a similar poll in late February.

Trump has spent his first months hamstrung by a series of events, such as his debunked insistence that Trump Tower was wiretapped by President Barack Obama and the lengthy saga over campaign ties to Russia.

Quinnipiac also found that his approval rating on the economy now tilts negative for the first time in its polls — 48% say they disapprove of how he’s handled it, while 42% say they approve.

The poll surveyed 1,056 voters between March 16-21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
