Vast Leak Discloses Diplomatic Secrets WSJ
Law & Politics

The publication of a quarter-million sensitive diplomatic cables
Sunday exposed years of U.S. foreign-policy maneuvering that could
prove embarrassing to the U.S. and its allies, especially in the
Islamic world.

Regarding Iran, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah was portrayed in an April
2008 memo as having told the U.S. "to cut off the head of the snake."

Though commonly called cables in the diplomatic world, they were
encrypted emails sent by special devices.

U.S. diplomats were portrayed as referring to allegedly corrupt
business practices of Ahmad Wali Karzai, a half-brother of Afghan
President Hamid Karzai. Saudi King Abdullah was described as saying he
viewed Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki as a proxy for Iran.

Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh allowed American forces to
conduct counter-terror operations against al Qaeda militants inside
his country. During a January meeting with visiting U.S. Gen. David
Petraeus, the Yemeni leader made clear he wanted to disguise
Washington's role, according to a cable from the American ambassador
in Sana'a.

"We'll continue saying the bombs are ours, not yours," Mr. Saleh said,
according to the cable, prompting Yemen's deputy prime minister to
"joke that he had just 'lied' by telling Parliament" that Yemeni
forces had carried out the strikes.

The cables also showed U.S. officials exploring ways to remove highly
enriched uranium from a Pakistani nuclear site in a way that wouldn't
spur a political backlash against Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari.

American diplomats were asked to collect biometric information on key
U.N. officials, from under secretaries to the heads of specialized
agencies and peacekeeping operations. It also asked for intelligence
on Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's management and decision-making

The secret document, titled "Reporting and Collection Needs: the
United Nations," asked for both basic "biographical information" and
detailed work schedules, credit-card numbers and frequent-flier
accounts. Such information could be used to track the movements and
activities of U.N. officials.

Saudi King Abdullah told U.S. officials that Pakistan's President
Zardari was incapable of reforming his country. "When the head is
rotten it affects the whole body," the Saudi monarch said, according
to a cable.

Another cable has an Israeli official, Amos Gilad, speculating in 2009
about the life span of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, 82, and
questioning whether his son, Gamal, was "ready to assume command."


The Information Stream will not be dammed and We have entered a New
Normal in that regard.

Europe Sets Bailout Rules WSJ
World Of Finance

Europe sealed a €67.5 billion bailout of Ireland Sunday and for the
first time crafted a blueprint for rescues from 2013 on that could
have private-sector creditors bearing some of the cost. The Irish
bailout, equivalent to about $90 billion, is intended as a signal that
the euro zone will come to the aid of its own. But the plan to share
pain with banks and other private-sector lenders is a message that the
munificence won't continue forever.

Ireland is the second euro-zone country, after Greece, to call for
help paying its bills. Bond markets have all but cut Dublin off by
demanding soaring interest rates. They have also become more wary of
lending to Portugal and Spain, stoking fears of toppling dominoes
along the euro-zone's weak perimeter. European finance ministers raced
to reach an agreement before unsettled markets opened Monday.

The $90 billion deal for Ireland and the plan for future rescues
"should decisively address the current nervousness in the financial
markets," said Olli Rehn, the EU's economy commissioner.

Under the compromise reached Sunday, the EU agreed to enact a new big
bailout fund of undetermined size. It will replace, in 2013, the €440
billion fund created in May and now being used to help Ireland. Under
the new fund's terms, creditors of countries that are deemed insolvent
could be forced into a restructuring before the fund doles out any

Investing in Fear Is Big Business WSJ

The popularity of the VIX index, which has become a widely watched
barometer of investor fear since the financial crisis, is generating a
host of spinoffs, copycats and derivatives. It is adding up to big
business for VIX's owner, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, as well
as partners and competitors that have developed products pegged to, or
inspired by, the VIX.

VIX clones have sprung up in Australia, Canada and India. There are
now VIX-like measures in the crude-oil and gold markets. Soon, there
will be a VIX each for corn and soybeans. The popularity of the index
has fueled growth in futures and options just to bet on the VIX

Formally known as the CBOE Market Volatility Index, the VIX tracks the
prices investors pay for options to protect themselves against swings
in the Standard & Poor's 500-stock index. An increase in those prices
suggests an increase in investor anxiety. It is also used as a
short-term predictor of investor behavior.

Wal-Mart Offers 16.5 Billion Rand for 51% of Massmart Bloomberg
Retail & Manufacturing

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, offered to buy 51
percent of Massmart Holdings Ltd. for 16.5 billion rand ($2.34
billion) and will retain the South African company’s listing on
Johannesburg’s bourse.Wal-Mart has “irrevocable” support for its 148
rand per share offer from shareholders representing 35 percent of
Massmart, the companies said in a statement today. Another 15 percent
of investors have offered “non-binding” support to the bid.Wal-Mart is
planning to use South Africa, the continent’s largest economy, as its
platform for expansion in Africa to counter slowing growth in U.S.
home market. Bentonville, Arkansas-based Wal-Mart faces opposition
from labor unions in its attempt to establish itself in the
country.Massmart rose 2.30 rand, or 1.6 percent, to 144 rand as of
9:10 a.m. in Johannesburg.

The offer needs approval from at least 75 percent of Massmart
investors, the statement said. Wal-Mart will seek a waiver to make a
mandatory offer to shareholders from South Africa’s regulators. A
mandatory offer is triggered when a shareholder breaches a 35-percent
threshold, under South African law.

Wal-Mart could lead corporate America into Africa CS Monitor

By Aly-Khan Satchu September 28, 2010 Nairobi, Kenya

Wal-Mart has announced that it is prepared to pay approximately $4.2
billion for Massmart Holdings. Massmart Holdings is a
Johannesburg-headquartered chain of discount superstores with a grand
total of 290 stores in 13 African countries under brand names such as
Makro, Game, and Builders Warehouse. Massmart stores can be found as
far away as Ghana and Nigeria and there are stores even in President
Mugabe's Zimbabwe.

Nigeria Oil Clashes Threaten Production in Challenge to Jonathan Bloomberg
Minerals, Oil & Energy

A surge of violence in Nigeria’s delta region is threatening output in
Africa’s biggest oil producer and may thwart President Goodluck
Jonathan’s ambition to win next year’s election.A year after thousands
of fighters laid down their arms under a government amnesty program,
militants this month struck an Exxon Mobil Corp. offshore platform,
Afren Plc’s shallow water field and a pipeline supplying crude to two
refineries. They also clashed with government troops and vowed more

“Any increase in violence is likely to affect oil output,” Mark
Schroeder, director of Africa analysis at Strategic Forecasting Inc.,
an Austin, Texas-based global intelligence group, said in a telephone
interview. “And the impact of that is felt not only in the country but
globally in terms of higher oil prices, even here in the U.S.”

The attacks have undermined the ability of Jonathan, 53, the nation’s
first leader from the Niger River delta, to guarantee security for an
industry that is the fifth-biggest source of U.S. crude imports and
provides 80 percent of government revenue. Total SA, Europe’s
third-largest oil company, said it may consider quitting the region if
the violence worsens.

“The easiest solution is to say that each time we are confronted with
a security problem we should leave, but then there won’t be any more
oil,” Total Chief Executive Officer Christophe de Margerie said at an
investor conference in Paris on Nov. 19. “If it gets worse, we may
have to leave.”

More than 90 percent of the country’s oil is pumped by Irving,
Texas-based Exxon Mobil, The Hague-based Royal Dutch Shell Plc,
Chevron Corp. of San Ramon, California, Total and Rome’s Eni SpA in
joint ventures with state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. in
Abuja, according to the Petroleum Ministry. Afren, a U.K. oil and gas
explorer focused on West Africa, is based in London.Nigeria was the
seventh-biggest producer in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries as of October, with output of about 2.05 million barrels a

This month’s attacks were claimed by the Movement for the Emancipation
of the Niger Delta (MEND), the main group responsible for Nigeria’s
oil output being cut by more than 28 percent between 2006 and 2009.
The organization says the region’s resources should be exclusively
controlled by the people of the delta, who would then pay taxes to the
national government.

“In the coming weeks, MEND will launch a major operation that will
simultaneously affect oil facilities across the Niger Delta,” MEND
spokesman Jomo Gbomo said in a Nov. 16 e-mailed statement.

The political ascent of Jonathan, a southern Christian, was partly
spurred by the insurrection in the delta, according to Schroeder. The
Ijaws and other ethnic minorities in the area say they are oppressed
by central governments working with international oil companies in a
region that the United Nations Development Programme said suffers from
“extreme deprivation.”

“In many cases, the conditions of rural communities where crude oil is
produced are deplorable, with severe environmental degradation, and no
access to safe drinking water, electricity and roads,” UNDP said in a
2006 report. “The results have been disillusionment, frustration about
their increasing deprivation and deep-rooted mistrust.”

Jonathan, who was chosen as vice president in 2007, became president
after his predecessor, northern Muslim Umaru Yar’Adua, died in May.
His decision to run for the presidency is contrary to an unwritten
agreement in the ruling People’s Democratic Party to rotate the office
between the mainly Muslim north and the predominantly Christian south.

Jonathan can’t “afford to be seen to be weak,” Bergen Risk Solutions,
a Fantoft, Norway-based risk adviser specializing in Nigeria’s oil
region, said in a Nov. 24 note to clients. “These factors undoubtedly
shaped Jonathan’s decision to unleash” the military “on his ethnic
brethren in the delta.”

Nigerian presidency spokesman Ima Niboro didn’t answer calls on his
mobile phone seeking comment.

Sudan's central bank raises margin on pound Reuters
World Currencies

Sudan's central bank on Sunday raised the margin for banks to buy
foreign currency to 17.6 percent above their official rates, trying to
bring more liquidity into the system as the black market inched
higher.Sudan's pound has been hit by speculation of an economic shock
or possible renewed conflict as the oil-producing south of the country
hurtles towards an expected vote for independence from the north in a
January 9 referendum.

Many Sudanese have horded foreign money and the central bank
implemented restrictions to prevent capital flight and bring hard
currency back into the system, hoping to crush the thriving black
market which had left banks short of hard cash.

Analysts and traders said a central bank policy implemented last week
ordering banks and exchanges to buy forex at a 16.29 percent margin
over their official rates was an effective temporary devaluation of
the pound, which the bank hoped to row back once uncertainty around
the referendum subsided.Last week the dollar could buy 2.9 Sudanese
pounds on the black market. On Sunday traders were offering between 3
and 3.1 pounds for the dollar despite the central bank move.The
initial margin set by the central bank last week of 16.29 percent
added onto the upper limit of last week's indicative rate was
equivalent to the black market rate of 2.9 pounds.Sunday's 17.6
percent margin above the upper limit of 2.54 on the central bank's web
site www.bankofsudan.org/ equals 2.99 pounds, almost equal to the
black market rate.


Thats a Devaluation.

Kenya's Eveready warns on full-year profits Reuters
N.S.E Equities - Industrial & Allied

Eveready East Africa , Kenya's main dry cell batteries maker, warned
on Monday a rise in global zinc prices and unfavorable exchange rates
was likely to affect its results for the year which ended in
September.Eveready said in a statement it was unable to pass the
higher zinc prices onto customers, its financing costs had increased
due to the depreciation of the Kenyan shilling and it was still being
hit by competition from counterfeit batteries.

It is due to report results some time next month.

"Whereas volumes of the financial year 2010 are expected to remain
largely at last year's levels, the impact of the continued presence in
the market of illicit dry cell batteries continued to affect the
company's growth projections," Issa Timamy, Eveready's company
secretary said.

"The profit warning is only based on the management accounts of the
company and preliminary assessment made by the board with reference to
figures and information currently available and is not based on
audited figures or information."

Eveready posted a 50.7 percent rise in pretax profit to 41.6 million
shillings ($515,500) for the year ended September, 2009 after results
in 2008 were hit hard by the violence in Kenya following disputed
election results.
