Multotec HX5 spirals continue to gain popularity especially in heavy minerals

first_imgThe HX5 spiral, the result of intensive testing by Multotec Process Equipment, was introduced into the heavy minerals sector a few years ago and is today finding ready acceptance in the market. The high capacity HX5 version of the conventional Multotec heavy minerals spiral can treat up to 5 to 8 t/h of dry solids compared to 1 to 2.3 t/h.“The HX5 has been specifically engineered for chrome and iron ore applications. Its shallower slope and larger 1,000 mm diameter make it suitable for rougher and scavenger applications,” Renira Reddy, product manager: gravity concentration at Multotec, explains. “Fewer units are needed to treat the same feed material because it handles higher capacities.”The spirals are equipped with sliding splitters for simpler adjustment for product collection, resulting in an easier operation. It allows for a larger mass pull to the concentrate and can treat fine ores ranging between 50 µm and 1.50 µml and is particularly effective on the size ranges between 50 µm and 300 µm. The spiral can be fitted with wash water where required.The HX5 can be assembled into a quad, with four assemblies on a centre column, further reducing the footprint resulting in additional cost savings. Ease of erection and the reduced number of units required also lead to a reduction in capex costs.last_img read more

Layoffs Hit BSAs Boys Life Scouting

first_imgThe Boy Scouts of America are cutting more than 30 positions from the staff of its two flagship magazines—Boy’s Life and Scouting—and its communications department, FOLIO: has learned.BSA says 17 people were laid off on June 10, with another 17 expected to come by the end of the year. A spokesman would not confirm the positions of those being terminated.The moves come after the organization “began discussing a partnership with Pearson [publishing company]” last year “to review [BSA’s] challenges and opportunities from a technology, publications and communications perspective,” according to Deron Smith, director of public relations for BSA, in an email to FOLIO:. “Recently the BSA took a difficult but critical step in transforming the organizational structure of its marketing department which involved eliminating 34 positions deemed not to effectively meet the core objectives of the BSA’s publishing and communications needs,” Smith says. “The BSA expects this change to improve the national council’s ability to serve the BSA’s local councils. “Smith told FOLIO: sister publication min that there are “no plans to change the printing schedule of either publication at this time.” Boy’s Life is monthly; Scouting has five issues per year.Circulation for both titles-currently at just over 1 million for Boy’s Life and just under 1 million for Scouting-has dropped steadily since 2009, per the Alliance for Audited Media.BSA’s magazine publishing revenues have fluctuated, but trended downward over the same period. The segment earned $16.10 million in 2012, according to the organization’s annual report, while operating at a $1.05 million profit margin. BSA cut its publishing expenses by about $900,000 from 2011 to 2012 however (see below).BSA says its providing severance packages and out placement services for the terminated employees, while indicating that the restructuring is unrelated to recent changes in membership standards.BSA voted to allow openly gay youths to join the organization in May after years of opposition.To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!More on this topic People on the Move | 06.05.09 People on the Move | 08.13.09 Sporting News Mag Goes Monthly Schofield Media Buys CTQ Emmis Cuts Corporate Salaries by 3 Percent Emmis Cuts 4.5 Percent of WorkforceJust In Editor & Publisher Magazine Sold to Digital Media Consultant TIME Names New Sales, Marketing Leads | People on the Move PE Firm Acquires Majority Stake in Industry Dive This Just In: Magazines Are Not TV Networks Meredith Corp.

As AM Chancellor And Hurricane Recovery Czar John Sharp Balances Two Intensely

first_img Share Bob Daemmrich for The Texas TribuneTexas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp, chosen to head the Governor’s Commission to Rebuild Texas, speaks at a meeting of officials in Victoria, Texas after Hurricane Harvey on Sept. 8, 2017.As Hurricane Harvey washed onto the Texas shore last month, flooding streets and toppling buildings, John Sharp stayed up late into the night working the phones. The chancellor of the Texas A&M University System had no official role to play at that moment. But in his usual restless manner, he wanted to check on his old friends and his childhood home in Victoria County.The friends were safe, and the woman who lives in his old house told him it survived, even though “the wind went right through it,” Sharp recalled.But Harvey will still likely keep him up late in the coming months and years.Last week, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott named Sharp the leader of his newly-formed Commission to Rebuild Texas, giving Sharp a key role in the state’s efforts to rebuild a region close to his heart. Sharp will pile that unpaid job on top of his current position overseeing the university system that includes his beloved alma mater in College Station.Those two jobs will make him one of the busiest and highest-profile non-elected officials in Texas over the rest of this decade. That might seem surprising, given that he’s a longtime Democrat in one of the most conservative states in the nation. But the former legislator, railroad commissioner and state comptroller has emerged as the Democrat that Texas Republicans seem to love.His folksy but hard-charging style have earned him a reputation as an astute and effective shepherd of government bureaucracy. Members of both parties say he’ll need those skills over the long-term recovery process.“In looking for someone to lead this effort, I needed someone with a very unique skill set,” Abbott said. “Someone who knows how to work with local officials, state officials and federal officials. Someone who has a natural, intuitive feel for the people of these communities. Someone who has mastered the complexity of budget issues at state and federal levels. Someone with a comprehensive understanding of our state agencies and the resources that come to bear.“I found all those attributes in one person: John Sharp.”Sharp’s continued standing in the state after his party’s fall from power probably wasn’t hurt by the fact that he has a habit of living near future Texas governors. While attending A&M, from which he graduated in 1972, he lived on the same dorm floor as Rick Perry. They became fast friends, scheming practical jokes together and helping each other get elected to student leadership positions — Sharp was student body president; Perry was a yell leader, an esteemed cheerleader-like position that leads students in organized chants during football games.After graduation, Sharp worked for the Legislative Budget Board and quickly became a rising star in Texas politics — which was then dominated by Democrats. He was elected to represent Victoria in the Texas House in 1978, moved on to the Senate four years later, then won a statewide race for a spot on the Railroad Commission four years after that. He made the biggest name for himself after being elected Comptroller in 1990. Sharp initiated regular performance reviews of state agencies designed to cut costs and streamline operations. Sharp later claimed that the reviews saved $8.5 billion and helped the state stave off the need for an income tax. Vice President Al Gore later used the strategy as a model for a similar initiative in the federal government.But his political rise ended there. In 1992, when President Bill Clinton appointed Texas’ U.S. Senator Lloyd Bentsen as Treasury Secretary, Sharp was a favorite to be named Bentsen’s replacement. The job went to Bob Krueger instead. In the meantime, the political tides turned in Texas, and Democrats’ electoral prospects faded. In 1998, Sharp ran a fierce campaign for lieutenant governor against his old friend Perry, but lost 50 percent to 48 percent. Two years later, Gov. George W. Bush was elected president, and Perry rose to the top elected office in the state.  After what he calls his “involuntary retirement from elected office,” Sharp moved to the private sector, working as a consultant in Austin and living in a house across the street from Abbott, who was attorney general at the time.But even as Republicans tightened their hold on state politics, Sharp remained prominent. In 2005, Perry named him to chair the Texas Tax Reform Commission, which was tasked with cutting property taxes while finding a sound way to fund public schools. The commission’s work led to major property tax cuts, but also the creation a new tax on businesses that turned out to be unpopular both because of its complexity and because it didn’t bring in as much money as its creators predicted.Abbott cited all those roles as the reason Sharp was right for the job.“He is known for his ability to cut through red tape,” Abbott said.Not your usual chancellorAt A&M, Sharp rarely acts like an academic. When he arrived in College Station in 2011, many on campus were skeptical. Some faculty and staff were leery of his relationship with Perry, who appointed all of the regents who voted to hire Sharp. And some were put off by his unconventional style.Sharp is aggressive and not enamored with the belabored pace at which decisions get made in higher education. He often refers to people by their last names, and it isn’t unheard of for him tell an off-color joke during a meeting.While he stays closely attuned to the wants and needs of powerful Texans, he also doesn’t shy from a public fight — and can sometimes have a short fuse. Last year, an article hinting at financial problems at A&M written by University of Texas at Austin sports fan website reporter Chip Brown prompted Sharp’s office to release a statement calling the story a “fairy tale.” The statement ended with the sentence, “we hereby nominate “Cowchip” Brown for sleaziest reporter in Texas, with full confidence he will win hands down.”Sharp also has aggressively fought Texas Tech University’s plans to open a new veterinary school in Amarillo — which would end the A&M veterinary school’s status as the only one in Texas.But even his skeptics admit that Sharp has had a transformative impact on the A&M System. He lured the president of the University of Washington to head A&M’s flagship school in College Station, and attracted the former president of Brown University to temporarily oversee Prairie View A&M. He has massively expanded engineering enrollment, and spearheaded a $485 million renovation of A&M’s football stadium. And in his trademark search for efficiency, he outsourced janitorial and food service work, saving A&M tens of millions of dollars.“At the A&M System, I have never seen anything like it,” said Phil Adams, who became an A&M System regent in 2001. “He gets things done. He executes, he moves the ball down the field. He is a tremendous leader and a tremendous administrator.”He’s also overflowing with school spirit. For the 2013 holiday season, he decorated his official chancellor’s residence with more than 40,000 lights flashing in sync with a rotation of six Christmas carols and Aggie marching band staples. And this month, at the request of Sharp, the Texas Department of Transportation installed a series of rumble strips on a road adjacent to the A&M campus that sound out the first few notes of A&M’s fight song when cars drive over them.Two jobsAt A&M, Sharp is known to work late into the night — he reportedly came up with the rumble strip idea at 2 a.m. But he insists that his new role in hurricane relief won’t get in the way of his paid job.“When Abbott told me to do this — it wasn’t a request, by the way — I said, ‘Do I get to keep my job?’” Sharp said.“He said, ‘Yeah, you probably only work 10 to 12 hours per day at that job. There’s 24 hours in a day. You have another 10 or 12 left.’”Sharp said he’ll lean heavily on A&M System staff to help with the recovery. Many of his top aides have accompanied him to meetings along the coast. And he plans to use agents from the A&M Agrilife Extension Service assigned to every county in the state to set up a network of people on the ground in affected areas.Last weekend, he joined Abbott on a listening tour through affected regions and gained his first hints about the scope of the task at hand. He visited areas that were decimated by Harvey’s winds, and spoke with officials from Houston, where thousands of homes were flooded.The federal government and the Texas General Land Office will be in charge of helping repair much of the damaged housing from the storm and flood, with Sharp’s commission helping in any way it can. Sharp said his focus will be on infrastructure — repairing sewer systems, school buildings and the Refugio County Courthouse, which was practically destroyed in the storm.He said he’ll work with Houston and Harris County, but knows that those areas have big, experienced staffs that know how to navigate the challenges they face. A lot of his time will be spent with the smaller cities and counties that don’t have the resources to respond to the disaster they have experienced.And officials say they have already seen how he will work. State Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, who represents many of the most damaged areas in the state, said Sharp shared his cell phone number with numerous people in the region, saying they could call at any time. The only rule: They can’t call to ask about A&M’s struggling football team.Bettencourt took advantage recently to pass along an offer by a local church to set up a Federal Emergency Management Administration office on its grounds.“It wasn’t even five minutes before he responded,” Bettencourt said. “That is one of John’s great strengths.”Bettencourt said he has no worries about whether Sharp can handle the job while also being chancellor.“With John, I always worry that he’s going to be bored,” Bettencourt said. “Now I know that he won’t.”last_img read more

From left are, Omarosa Manigault, Trump, and then-Housing and Urban Development Secretary-designate Ben Carson. Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former “Apprentice” contestant who became one of Trump’s most prominent African -American supporters, has resigned from the White House.(AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File) WASHINGTON – Former “Apprentice” star Omarosa denies she was fired from her job at the White House — and she’s teasing that she has stories to tell about what she’s seen and heard there.In an interview Thursday with ABC’s “Good Morning America, Manigault Newman also said reports that she made a scene while being escorted from the White House grounds this week are “100 per cent false,” and questioned why no photos or video of the alleged ruckus had surfaced.She said she resigned after a conversation with White House chief of staff John Kelly about some of her concerns. Her White House pass has been cut off, according to the Secret Service, although she will remain on the staff through the administration’s one-year mark.“John Kelly and I had a very straightforward discussion about concerns that I had, issues that I raised and, as a result, I resigned and it will be taking place Jan. 20, when I leave this very interesting administration,” Manigault Newman said.She also denied reports that she tried to enter the White House residence to see President Donald Trump, calling those reports “ridiculous” and “absurd.”The outgoing presidential adviser alluded to seeing and hearing things during her 11 months in the White House that made her unhappy and uncomfortable. She declined to elaborate, citing her continued employment by the White House.“But when I have a chance to tell my story … quite a story to tell, as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people,” she said. “And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear.”One of Trump’s most prominent African-American supporters, Manigault Newman was an assistant to the president and director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, working on outreach to various constituency groups.But the office languished under her watch and Kelly had indicated that changes were forthcoming — including her dismissal, according to two White House officials who insisted on anonymity to discuss personnel matters because they were not authorized to speak publicly about them.Better known by only her first name, Manigault Newman was escorted from the White House complex Tuesday night but was allowed to offer her resignation, according to the two officials. The U.S. Secret Service, which provides security for the president, tweeted Wednesday that it was not involved in her termination or in her escort from the grounds. Some published reports said Secret Service officers had physically removed Manigault Newman from the complex.The agency confirmed that a pass granting her access to the complex had been deactivated.“Our only involvement in this matter was to deactivate the individual’s pass which grants access to the complex,” the agency tweeted.Trump bid her farewell in a tweet late Wednesday. “Thank you Omarosa for your service! I wish you continued success.”Her exit comes at the beginning of what’s expected to be a wave of departures. Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell is also leaving early next year.Manigault Newman, who drew a top salary of $179,700, was one of Trump’s highest-profile supporters during the campaign. She also worked with Trump’s transition team.A former contestant on the first season of “The Apprentice,” Trump’s former reality TV show, Manigault Newman had long been unpopular with several senior West Wing officials, including senior adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Kelly.Kelly, the retired Marine general who has made it his mission to tighten White House operations and streamline how Trump gets information, has told aides that he wanted to curtail the number of White House officials with ill-defined positions and responsibilities.Kelly took away Manigault Newman’s ability to come and go from the Oval Office as she pleased. During the first months of Trump’s administration, aides were known to wander in and out of meetings, a practice Kelly ended across the board. She also drew Kelly’s ire by occasionally going around him to slip news articles to the president.Manigault Newman enjoyed a close relationship with the president despite the fact that he once uttered the famous “You’re fired!” line to her before dispatching her from the TV show. She held her April wedding at Trump’s hotel blocks from the White House.___Associated Press writers Zeke Miller and Jonathan Lemire in New York contributed to this report.___Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: Former ‘Apprentice’ star Omarosa denies White House firinglast_img read more
