TONY James, president of US private equity business Blackstone Group, said yesterday there isn’t enough capital available from investors to fund all the opportunities he sees in the market.“In 2005 and 2006, if you put it out well, you could raise as much as you could invest,” James, 59, said at the Bloomberg Dealmakers Summit in New York. He added: “That’s no longer the case.”Blackstone, the world’s biggest private-equity firm, has raised $13.5bn (£8.6bn) for its sixth buyout fund, 40 per cent less than it gathered for its previous pool. In the past year, the company has sold $1bn of debt to fund acquisitions and hire teams to diversify to offset a decline in buyouts. Its largest unit runs fund of hedge funds and credit investing, with $52.4bn of assets. “The economics are not going to be attractive for a few years,” James said. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Blackstone’s James says capital is difficult to raise Thursday 30 September 2010 10:28 pm whatsapp More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Tags: NULL

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Centre stage: Dixon in action for Wales U20 I learned a lot from Byron Hayward, Wales U20 coach. I always watched Brian O’Driscoll and Jamie Roberts is a hero of mine. I’ve also learned a lot from Ashley Smith and Pat Leach in training.How was last season?I was set back with injury. I snapped the ligament in my big toe and had to have an operation and was out for four or five months.Aims for this season?I just want to get as much game time as I can for the Dragons. Lee Byrne and Aled Brew have joined, so I am looking forward to playing with them. I’ll be out of the U20s so a senior Welsh cap has to be my next goal. I’m looking to work towards that. When did you first play rugby?I played for Newbridge RFC from when I was nine. My dad was keen on rugby and played for Abertillery so he took me along. It was always my favourite sport.Where do you play? I’ve always played centre. You get a lot of involvement in the game and get a lot of ball. A lot of opportunities to make big hits as well.When did you join Newport Gwent Dragons?I stayed with Newbridge until U16 level, then went into the Dragons Academy and had a couple of seasons with Bedwas, then started playing for the Dragons.Who’s influenced you? RW verdict: At 6ft 3in and 16st, Dixon, 19, is sure to prove a handful for Dragons’ opponents.This hotshot was first published in the October 2014 edition of Rugby World. Click here to see what’s in this month’s mag!
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?Probably Ben White getting his shorts pulled down in the middle of a game. And he wasn’t wearing any pants…Who are the jokers at Exeter Chiefs?Kai Horstmann, Carl Rimmer, Greg Bateman and Ben White are the main four. It’s mainly banter but it’s pretty severe, close-to-the-bone stuff.Do you have any nicknames?The standard is Sladey, but also Rusty because my hair goes a bit ginger in the summer.Do you have any phobias?Snakes. I held one when I was a kid and I hate what they feel like. It’s their texture and the way they move – I don’t ever want to see one.What about bugbears?The lids being left off things like toothpaste. Sam Hill is the worst at it. And he never brings deodorant or toothpaste – he relies on me. It’s little things like that!Who’d be your three dream dinner party guests?David Beckham – he’s cool. Rachel McAdams (actress) because I used to fancy her when I was younger. I can’t think of anyone else so it would just be those two.Fans’ favourite: David Beckham is greeted by fans at an awards ceremony. Photo: ReutersDo you have any superstitions?Quite a few but they’re hard to explain. I’m quite OCD so pretty much everything in life has a routine. Everything has to be done left first and then right, but that’s just the start. It’s too detailed to go into and if something isn’t right I’ll start again. Like if I’m packing clothes away, everything has to be folded in the same perfect symmetry. And my wardrobe is colour coordinated.Do your team-mates try to mess things up?Yes! When I lived with a few of the boys they would go into my room and mess it up. I’d have to start tidying up straightaway.If you could be any of your team-mates, who would it be?It would probably be Dave Ewers because I’d like to be really strong.What’s your most embarrassing moment?I’m sure there are lots but I can’t think of any. Probably missing a conversion from in front of the posts this season against Newcastle. It was bang in front of the posts!If you could have one superpower, what would it be?Super-strength. That would be really handy in life.Who’d play you in a film of your life?Brad Pitt. He’s a cool guy and I like to be perceived as being cool. On the ball: Henry Slade trained with the senior England squad during the Six Nations. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat’s the silliest thing you’ve ever bought?I don’t know if it’s silly, but I bought this big, soft chair for the corner of my room. It was a lot of money and afterwards I thought ‘Why have I done that?’ But I do use it.What’s your guilty pleasure?Taylor Swift’s music, and pancakes with Nutella and whipped cream.Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with?Ben White – only he’ll know why.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?To be honest I’ve not thought a lot about it but I probably should come up with something.How would you like to be remembered?Just as a nice guy who worked hard and was alright at rugby. Eye-catching: Henry Slade touches down for Exeter Chiefs this season.

News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns these deliberate attacks on those working for media organizations affiliated to, or with links to, Hamas, and also the statement by the Israeli government spokesman. The press freedom organization points out that, under humanitarian law, journalists are entitled to the same protection as civilians and should not be regarded as military targets.The fact that they are considered to be propaganda outlets is not sufficient reason to treat them as military targets. Indeed, the commission of experts appointed by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to examine the NATO bombing campaign in 1999 ruled that journalists and media organizations were not legitimate targets for “merely disseminating propaganda”. “Attacks on civilian targets are war crimes and serious violations of the Geneva Conventions. Those responsible must be identified,” Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without Borders secretary general, said last weekend. PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Since the start of Operation Pillar of Defence against the Gaza Strip, 11 journalists have been wounded:– Six were hurt when Israeli planes fired missiles at the Al-Shawa Wa Hassri Tower in Gaza City at 2 a.m. on 18 November.– Five hours later three Al-Aqsa TV employees were wounded when two missiles hit the Al-Shourouk building, located in the Rimal district in the western part of the city and known as the “journalists’ building”.– Two more were hit in another Israeli salvo against the Al-Shourouk building. They were identified as Ahmed Al-Ridi, a cameraman for Al-Arabiya, and Ahmed Al-Achkar, a cameraman for the local station Houna Al-Qods TV. According to medical staff at the Al-Shifa hospital, they were only slightly hurt and were discharged two hours later, after treatment. An Israeli military spokesman said the planes’ target was Ramez Harb, a senior communications official in the Al Quds Brigades, the military wing of Islamic Jihad.

At the time of his death, he was a member of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad in Palestine.——-21 November 2013 – Three journalists killed in deliberate attacks by Israeli planesRead in Arabic (بالعربية)Three journalists were killed yesterday, the seventh day of Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defence in the Gaza Strip. A tower block containing the offices of the French news agency Agence France-Presse in the Rimal district was also hit by an Israeli air strike. Two Palestinian cameramen from the TV station Al-Aqsa, Mohamed al-Kaoumi and Hossam Salameh, were killed when their vehicle was hit by a missile fired from Israeli aircraft just after 6 p.m.The two men were in Nasser Street in Gaza City on their way to the northern part of the city to film Palestinian victims of Israeli air strikes. An Israeli warplane aimed a missile directly at the Al-Aqsa crew’s vehicle, which was clearly marked with the word “media” in Arabic. The executive director of Al-Quds educational radio, Mohammed Moussa Abu Eisah, was killed when his car was hit by an Israeli missile in the Gaza City district of Deir Al-Balah about 8 p.m.An Israeli military spokeswoman, Avital Leibovich, said later that preliminary results of an investigation indicated that the three journalists were Hamas operatives.Later in the evening, the block housing the offices of AFP was hit by three Israeli strikes. None of the agency’s journalists were hurt. The Israeli military confirmed the eight-storey building’s seventh floor, which it said was believed to house a Hamas military operations room, was “surgically” targeted.About 11 p.m., Israeli forces issued a statement on Twitter aimed at journalists in the area. In an interview with Al-Jazeera three days ago, the Israeli government spokesman, Mark Regev, said Al-Aqsa journalists were not legitimate journalists in the same way as those from the BBC or Al-Jazeera.
