Vermont 100+ 25th Anniversary: GMCR is the new number one

first_imgIn January 1987, Vermont Business Magazine ran its first Vermont 100, predicated on 1986 revenues. Since then there have been only three companies that have been Number One: National Life Group, C&S Wholesale Grocers and Fletcher Allen Health Care. This year another will join that exclusive list and it comes as no surprise that it is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc, which nearly doubled its revenues in just the last year. Indeed, over the course of 25 years, GMCR is the fastest growing company as well. VBM is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.The full Vermont 100+, with growth charts and industry-specific subcategories, once again appears in the January issue of Vermont Business Magazine. To go along with the rankings, we have profiles of every company that has appeared on the list every year. We also have re-published the top 20 rankings from 25 years ago, as well as from 20,15,10 and 5 years ago. The reader will notice how traditional manufacturing and construction firms still play a vital role in the economy, even with the emergence of high-tech companies. RELATED:GMCR takes Vt Business top

Third drug tunnel found under US-Mexico border

first_img TIJUANA, Mexico — The Mexican army uncovered another drug smuggling tunnel beneath the US-Mexico border July 13, one day after the discovery of two others was announced. The latest tunnel, still under construction, was 350 meters (383 yards) long and 1.7 meters (5ft 7in) high, linking the border city of Tijuana with San Diego in southern California. Forty tons of marijuana were seized. “Military troops discovered another tunnel under construction to transport drugs,” said a defense ministry statement, adding that the tunnel was some 10 meters (11 yards) underground. The tunnel had a ventilation system, wooden supports and part of a system of rails to transport drugs, General Gilberto Landeros said at a news conference. The entrance was found in a storage building about 250 meters (273 yards) from the border, and had not yet come out on the U.S. side. The tunnel had an altar with a picture of the Virgin Mary and another of Jesús Malverde, a saint not recognized by Catholics but venerated by drug traffickers, notably in the northwestern state of Sinaloa. Almost at the same time, in another warehouse in a rural area east of Tijuana, soldiers seized 40 tons of marijuana stored in five trucks. Three people were arrested, Landeros said, adding that it was not yet known to which drug cartel the tunnel or the drugs belonged. Authorities from the two countries said they had unearthed a 240-yard (219-meter) drug tunnel from the Arizona town of San Luis across the border to San Luis Rio Colorado, on the Mexican side, on July 12. Separately, the Mexican army found a 150-meter (164-yard) tunnel from Tijuana to the U.S. side of the border the same day. Last November two major drug smuggling tunnels were found near the Mexican border with California in Tijuana, one of them 400 yards (366 meters) and the other 600 yards (549 meters) in length. Over the past decade at least 86 tunnels have been discovered in Arizona, and 50 in California, officials said.

Gen. Kelly defends Trump over values

first_imgSeveral days ago, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly made some comments defending Donald Trump’s controversial condolence call to the widow of a Green Beret killed in Niger.Mr. Kelly lamented that when he “was a kid growing up, a lot of things were sacred in our country”, and listed among them 1) women (who he said “were looked upon with great honor”); 2) religion; and 3) Gold Star families. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Mr. Kelly and I happen to be the same age. Therefore, I, too, clearly remember the time in this country’s history to which he is referring, and I agree with him.But here are the flagrant inconsistencies in his comments: Mr. Kelly is a man with a high-ranking position in the administration of a president who has; 1) bragged about sexually assaulting women and having described his own daughter as “a piece of ass”; 2) repeatedly attempted to impose a ban on Muslims entering this country; and 3) lambasted/belittled a Gold Star family.Regarding the military, Mr. Kelly also stated: “There’s nothing in our country anymore that seems to suggest that selfless service to the nation is not only appropriate but required.” I agree with that, as well. I served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. But how many of us remember that Donald Trump never donned a military uniform, although he was of prime age to have done so during that era? Evidently, Mr. Kelly isn’t among them.People need to wake up and reject the constant “smoke-and -mirror” duplicity of the current administration. It’s high time for Congress to “repeal and replace,” but I’m not referring to health care; I’m talking about the 25th Amendment and/or impeachment.Paul DeierleinSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Anderson starts, but Dodgers finish off NLCS winSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsTroopers: Schenectady pair possessed heroin, crack cocaine in Orange County Thruway stopSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionslast_img read more

Putin warns Russia to prepare for ‘extraordinary’ virus crisis

first_imgIn the video conference, Putin called for measures to end shortages of protective equipment for medics.”I know there’s not always enough of that and of course here we need additional measures to get rid of all these shortages,” the president said.He added that Russia would also bring in the defense ministry to help if necessary.Russia has sent military planes with specialists and equipment to countries including Italy, China and the United States, gestures that have prompted criticism from some Russians over using crucial resources for geopolitical aims. Hospitals approaching limits The digital permit system may be expanded to monitor people going out on foot even within their neighborhood, if needed, authorities said.Authorities had initially planned to introduce an aggressive surveillance system and assign Muscovites scannable QR codes each time they wanted to leave their homes, but that sparked huge controversy.The plan was dropped in favor of the current system.Under strict confinement rules in the Russian capital, Muscovites are only allowed to leave their homes to walk their dogs, take out trash and visit their nearest shop though private car journeys have not been restricted up to now.Moscow has been under lockdown since March 30, but is now struggling to cope with the influx of new patients and officials have said hospitals are approaching their limits.Russia on Monday reported 2,558 new infections — the biggest daily increase to date — bringing the total tally to 18,328 cases and 148 fatalities.The actual numbers are believed to be much higher, however, since many with mild symptoms are not being tested.The densely populated capital of more than 12 million residents has emerged as Russia’s epicenter of the contagion with 11,513 cases and 82 deaths.Deputy Prime Minister Tatiana Golikova, who is coordinating efforts to fight the virus, predicted higher numbers of cases in Moscow and the surrounding region would continue to rise in the coming days.”Of course we hope this growth will plateau,” she added. Digital travel permits As part of tightening virus measures, Moscow authorities began on Monday issuing digital permits to reduce violations of the coronavirus lockdown as Russia reported more than 2,500 new infections, its highest daily rise yet.Officials said that more than 800,000 passes were issued to people planning to travel by car or public transport ahead of the system’s formal launch on Wednesday.But they said that hackers targeted the mayor’s office website and applicants complained on social media they were not able to get a pass despite multiple attempts.People will be assigned a special code consisting of a sequence of figures and letters — which can be printed out or received by email — if people report where they are planning to go.Work passes will be valid until April 30, while passes obtained to go to a doctor or elsewhere can only be used once.Police patrols will be able to check the passes on the streets and could fine people for violations.Exempt are armed forces personnel, municipal officials and journalists, among others. President Vladimir Putin on Monday warned officials to brace for “extraordinary” scenarios in the coronavirus pandemic as Moscow tightened its lockdown measures and Russia reported its highest daily infection figures yet.In a video conference with officials on Monday, Putin said the next weeks would be “decisive” for Russia’s fight against the virus as the situation “is changing practically every day, and unfortunately not for the better.”He told officials that they need to “consider all scenarios for how the situation will develop, even the most complex and extraordinary.” Topics :last_img read more

UK roundup: Suffolk LGPS, BMW UK, Cameron Hume, Pemberton

first_imgSuffolk Pension Fund (SPF), the pension provider for 55,600 local government employees in the East Anglian county of Suffolk, has reported a 0.7% return for the year to 31 March on its £2.2bn (€2.8bn) portfolio, compared with 14.6% for the previous year. However, SPF said its most recent return was 0.5% higher than the average achieved by other local authority funds.SPF’s annualised return is now 7% for the three years, and 7.3% for the five years, to the same date.SPF invests exclusively in pooled funds. At 31 March, 50.5% of the portfolio was invested in equities (17.5% in the UK and 33% overseas), with 19.9% in fixed income (primarily global bonds).Property made up 11%, while 17.3% was in other alternatives, primarily absolute return (9.5%), private equity (3%) and infrastructure (2.4%).An interim valuation showed that the funding level at March was 78.5% and the actuarial deficit at that date £592m. In other news, BMW Group is proposing to close its two UK defined benefit (DB) pension schemes to future accrual from 1 June 2017 and to have staff join the company’s defined contribution (DC) scheme instead.The closure of the DB scheme would affect some 5,000 staff across all the company’s UK operations.BMW has launched a consultation on its proposal.Trade union Unite has said it will fight the plans “tooth-and-claw”.A spokeswoman for BMW said the cost and risk associated with DB schemes were making them increasingly unsustainable and unaffordable for members and companies like BMW. “BMW Group has always prided itself in providing excellent pensions for its staff and wants to act now to protect future pension provision for all its staff and to help protect the cost competitiveness of the UK as a manufacturing base,” she said.BMW’s DC scheme was launched in early 2014 and has more than 2,000 members.Meanwhile, Edinburgh-based investment management company Cameron Hume has teamed up with firms in Australia and Sweden as part of a plan to expand to the institutional business in new areas.The Scottish firm has signed distribution agreements with AFM Investment Partners in Melbourne, and Nordicus Capital, which covers the Nordic region from Stockholm.The partner companies will be responsible for identifying opportunities for Cameron Hume to work with institutional clients, including pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and insurance companies.Cameron Hume specialises in fixed income investments for large, sophisticated institutional clients, managing $600m (€535m) on behalf of Sanlam, a South African insurer.Lastly, Pemberton has launched a UK mid-market direct lending strategy, aiming to raise £500m for a sterling-denominated fund that will invest in dynamic mid-sized UK businesses.The asset management group said the new fund was anchored by two leading institutional investors, naming Legal & General Capital (LGC) as one, and will allow investors with long-term capital to take advantage of the financing gap created by banks’ withdrawal from new corporate lending. It expects a first close before the end of the year.John Doyle, head of origination UK at Pemberton, said its origination team had sourced more than 100 opportunities in the past 12 months “and, importantly, the UK’s decision to leave the European Union has not impacted this appetite”.The UK mid-market debt fund is Pemberton’s second, coming on top of one with a pan-European focus.last_img read more

Bourbon confirms death of two more crew members after vessel sinking

first_imgFrench offshore vessel owner Bourbon has reported the death of two other crew members of the Bourbon Rhode vessel who went missing following the sinking of the vessel in the Atlantic Ocean last weekend.Following the incident last week where the Bourbon Rhode vessel found itself near the eye of the hurricane Lorenzo and sank in the Atlantic, three crew members were rescued and eleven were missing. On Monday, September 30 Bourbon confirmed the death of one crew member.In its latest update released on Tuesday, Bourbon said: “The bodies of our two mariners were recovered at sea last night and transferred on the French navy “Ventôse” frigate. Bourbon stands by the seafarers’ families and is fully mobilized to support them in this terrible time.”The company added that the research operations carried out by the French authorities with the support of the US authorities are part of exceptional measures, further intensified in recent days. Since the beginning of the operations on September 26, ten commercial vessels have been mobilized in the area.According to Bourbon, daily overflights are performed by a Falcon 50 of the French Navy, supported by a C 130 Hercules aircraft from the US Coast Guards. The Navy frigate, accompanied by its helicopter “Panther”, is at the heart of the system and coordinates the grid of nearly 40 search areas.Bourbon Corporation CEO, Gaël Bodénès, stated: “On behalf of all BOURBON employees, I would like to pay tribute to the deceased sailors. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones who are grieving over this dramatic event. We stand in full solidarity with them in this ordeal and assure them of our strongest support. Research operations are continuing on this sixth day and the mobilization of the maritime world is unprecedented. I would like to express our gratitude to all the research teams and those who volunteer.”last_img read more
