Shell workers in Nigeria walk off job in ‘warning strike’ to avert job cuts

Canada.com: Shell workers in Nigeria walk off job in ‘warning strike’ to avert job cuts

Canadian Press

Tuesday, June 22, 2004

LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) – Shell workers in three Nigerian cities walked off the job Tuesday in a “warning strike” intended to force the oil giant to abandon proposed job cuts, union and company officials said.

The country’s two main oil unions called the strike Monday afternoon in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Warri. The work stoppage was to continue until Tuesday night, a Shell spokesman said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Shell pumps about half of all oil produced in Nigeria, which is the world’s seventh-largest oil exporter. Nigeria accounts for one-tenth of Shell’s global production. read more

By Melanie Payne — Bee Staff Writer

Published 2:15 am PDT Tuesday, June 22, 2004

The article set off a flurry of letters from Jamie Court, president of the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights, to state Attorney General Bill Lockyer and to the Federal Trade Commission. read more

A healthy new business is born

Financial Times: A healthy new business is born

By Mark Nicholson

Jun 22, 2004

Two young Scots design engineers last week won this year’s £10,000 Shell LiveWIRE entrepreneurs’ award, two years after they walked into Glasgow’s Yorkhill hospital and asked staff which of their equipment was “rubbish”.

The clinicians pointed to intensive care equipment for new-borns. So Neil Tierney and Neil Farish, then undergraduates on a product design course run jointly by Glasgow University and Glasgow School of Art, came up with a better baby-care unit. read more

The lost Arabic school for scandal: the spy school

The Times: The lost Arabic school for scandal: the spy school

By Michael Binyon
June 22, 2004

EXOTIC, influential, reviled and mysterious, few institutions have exercised such a lasting and controversial hold over British diplomacy as a modest language school founded in Jerusalem 60 years ago this month.

The Middle East Centre for Arab Studies (Mecas), later based in Lebanon and known throughout the Arab world as “the spy school”, began as an attempt to train army officers in the language and culture of the Middle East, where Britain still ruled a dozen countries directly or indirectly. When the last intake of young British diplomats, oilmen and students, Japanese businessmen and international civil servants scuttled out of the beleaguered school at the height of the Lebanese civil war in 1978, they left behind an institution that has never been matched and will never be repeated: a piece of Whitehall nestling amid the terraces, vineyards and old stone houses of Shemlan, a sleepy Christian mountain village that became synonymous with broken plurals, weak radicals and all the intricacies of modern newspaper Arabic. read more
