Clothing retailer Next is due to reveal in a trading update on Wednesday how snow disruption and consumer spending pressures have affected sales over the 24 weeks to Christmas Eve. The firm said in September it expected like-for-like retail sales to shed between 1.5 and 4.5 per cent in the second half of the year, pointing to a steep rise in cotton prices as a catalyst for further drops in 2011. The firm declined to comment yesterday on its performance over the holidays. Analysts at UBS have predicted a 4.5 per cent decline in like-for-like sales, while Seymour Pierce has forecast a 3.3 per cent drop in store sales.Next has previously released guidance predicting annual profit of between £535m and £560m. Also on Wednesday, pizza group Domino’s is expected to announce a strong fourth quarter following a £7m advertising campaign. Analysts at Numis have forecast a pre-tax profit of £36.5m for 2010 on the back of revenues of £185m.The pizza delivery firm has historically fared well during periods of bad weather, with jumps in sales in January 2010 and February 2009, according to analysts at Seymour Pierce. Clinton Cards is up next on Thursday, with the high street greetings card seller hoping to improve on the three per cent drop in like-for-like sales reported in its November interim statement. Waitrose has already revealed its Christmas sales figures were the best ever, despite the icy weather. The supermarket said December sales rose 5.4 per cent on last year, with strong demand for luxury Christmas goods. Parent company John Lewis has said sales at its department stores jumped 26.2 per cent in the first week of its post-Christmas clearance sale. However, market research company Synovate found that shopper numbers between 22 and 26 December were down 6.1 per cent this year.

Leicester Tigers “disappointed” with result of Richard Cockerill appeal

first_imgSurely Cockerill regretted his actions, though this is rarely reiterated enough, but this line from the club spoke more of a sour taste at the handling of the incident. The RFU have come under fire for the length of time it took to rule on the matter and their conduct before and after. Cockerill has not been banned for the Montpellier fixture, meaning  the Heineken Cup pool match against Treviso will be the last played out with the director of rugby.It must be understood that this is a punishment, however, and while his ban may be compared to that handed down to red-carded hooker Dylan Hartley who has shouldered an 11-week ban that also includes friendlies, the circumstances are slightly different.Unimpeded: Last time Tigers played Treviso in the HeinekenArguably, Hartley’s ban is a total-rugby ban, meant to starve the player of all action as penitence for his lapse in the final. Cockerill’s ban is meant to keep him from decision making so as to show him what affect his actions have on a whole team, hence the deliberate move to include a Heineken pool game.As the miscreant acts of both subjects came in the league’s showcase finale and because both men have previous, it will irk some that the decisions on both did not come at the same time with similar lengths of ban or start-times for the ban. Blab for a ban: Leicester Tigers’ Richard Cockerill gives the officials a piece of his mind during the Premiership finalBy Alan DymockHAD LEICESTER Tigers said: “we’re not angry, we’re just disappointed,” while spinning a ruddy-cheeked RFU spokesman towards the naughty step it would have had the same ring…Following an appeal to the nine-match touchline ban handed to Richard Cockerill – a punishment for his antics during the Aviva Premeirship final where he was ruled to direct obscene, inappropriate and/or unprofessional language and behaviour at fourth official Stuart Terheege – the head coach saw his ban brought forward to include two friendly matches, but not shortened.Seeing red: Hartley was also punished for conduct in the finalAfter this ruling, which saw two friendlies against Jersey and Ulster brought under the ban but not a friendly against French champions Montpellier, the East Midlands club released a scalding statement about their feelings on the matter.“We are pleased that the judgement vindicated our decision to appeal and we are grateful to the panel for the consideration that they showed,” the statement read, before changing tact: “although we await with interest the written judgement to see why the pre-season game against Montpellier falls into a different category than those against Jersey and Ulster.“We remain disappointed with the RFU’s conduct in this matter but, as we have previously stated, this is a matter we shall pursue privately.” Of course, it would have sent more of a message to keep Hartley’s ban from all competitive action while starting Cockerill’s ban from the same time or not amending their original decision. Clearly they wanted to the ban to come in for the Treviso match and they felt that keeping the ban at nine matches but bringing it forward would at least seem slightly more lenient. The one-match Montpellier oversight still jars, though, and speaks of uncertainty.When it comes to such matters, surely any concession at all makes the original decision makers ill at ease and portrays the ruling body as less than commanding. No wonder they are getting a finger wagged in their face and being told they may not get any supper.

Ondřej loves nature and forests. Before having children he led a life of a modern nomad. He owned a site in the middle of the woods and always dreamt about building a cabin there. During winter he used to live in the city and in spring he relocated to his parents’ cabin nearby the future building site of the house LO. He wanted his house to be connected to the surrounding nature, to be ecological, and to have his own photo chamber there, to spend his winter evenings developing his photos.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© BoysPlayNiceHe also had a clear idea about the building material. As hempcrete has never been used as a building material in the Czech Republic, it was a great challenge for me as an architect. First struggles evolved in a valuable experience and fascination with its features and its history. Building with hempcrete is easy and allows the builder to build their house on their own. Material is petrifying for several years and draws carbon dioxide from the air around during this process. Hempcrete has great insulating features, is recyclable and also resistant to pests, fire and molds.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceHouse LO is defined by three elements: two perforated stones and a thin wooden sheet. The void in between the stones is the living space of the house. It is separated from the surrounding nature by large sliding windows that allow the space to become part of the outdoors and frame picturesque views. The two stones contain entrance, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The house has a cellar with technical facilities, photo chamber, club room and storage.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceA large terrace runs around the house, being protected from bad weather by the roof overhang, so that the owner can spend as much time outside as possible. The roof is covered with a green carpet, so that the house merges with nature and is well insulated. The layout of the house is designed to use its space to the fullest. The house will gradually become part of the nature. First it will be a home to a family with two children, later become a family summer retreat and even later a comfortable home for an elderly couple.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessTortosa Law Courts / Camps Felip ArquitecturiaSelected ProjectsHeatherwick Studio Unveils Pair of Curvaceous Towers for VancouverArchitecture News Share “COPY”center_img Area:  195 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/955757/house-lo-atelier-lina-bellovicova Clipboard Projects Architects: Ateliér Lina Bellovičová Area Area of this architecture project House LO / Ateliér Lina BellovičováSave this projectSaveHouse LO / Ateliér Lina Bellovičová Photographs:  BoysPlayNice Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•Velehrad, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/955757/house-lo-atelier-lina-bellovicova Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAteliér Lina BellovičováOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookVelehradCzech RepublicPublished on January 27, 2021Cite: “House LO / Ateliér Lina Bellovičová” 27 Jan 2021.

Blue Peter 60th: How Sightsavers got its name

first_img Tagged with: anniversaries appeals BBC TV Melanie May | 17 October 2018 | News During the appeal, more than 32,000 bring-and-buy sales took place across the country, with the final total reaching over £2 million.Sightsavers liked the ‘Sight Saver’ name so much that the organisation re-branded and changed its name that year.Blue Peter Editor Biddy Baxter said at the time:“The appeal smashed all its targets and raised almost 20 times its original goal. Two million people in Africa will have their sight saved as a result.”Blue Peter presenter Mark Curry, who fronted the campaign, said:“The 1986 appeal is one of the standout memories for me from my time on the programme.“I will never forget watching children walking hand in hand with their blind or partially sighted parents and grandparents guiding them across the villages.  I witnessed cataract operations performed by the Sightsavers team and saw the sheer delight when bandages were removed revealing eyes that could suddenly see again. I was totally in awe of this delicate work in tough conditions and with basic facilities.”“Our filming trip wasn’t without problems. We lost electricity many times at our accommodation and hot water was scarce – we often bathed in the lake! We travelled for miles over unmade roads in dusty, hot conditions but we knew how important our filming was in encouraging viewers to host or attend Bring and Buy Sales. The whole Blue Peter team was thrilled and proud that the 1986 appeal exceeded expectations.” Sightsavers is marking Blue Peter’s 60th anniversary by looking back at the 1986 Blue Peter appeal that gave the charity its name.  Blue Peter’s 1986 Sight Saver appeal asked children to host bring-and-buy sales to fund mobile eye units in Malawi, Nigeria and Tanzania. The aim was to raise £100,000 for the Royal Commonwealth Society for the Blind, which was the original name of Sightsavers.

Northern Indiana Yields Remain Strong

first_img Northern Indiana Yields Remain Strong Home News Feed Northern Indiana Yields Remain Strong SHARE SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Oct 19, 2020 Facebook Twittercenter_img Facebook Twitter Burnett adds that issues this harvest have been minimal. He notes there are isolated areas where he’s seen some ear molds but it’s not an issue he’s overly concerned about. He also believes that stalk quality is pretty good. He is happy to see some rain move through this week.“We were getting awfully dry. We mentioned earlier some combine fires and some other issues that have been going on with how dry it’s been here lately. So, the rain we’re getting here is much needed and much appreciated. I don’t think there’s going to be enough to keep us out. The soil is going to soak that water up pretty quick. We’re not going to have any issues with getting in from a soil fitness standpoint. So, really, I think things are good. We’re rolling through. I think we’re on track to have harvest done pretty early.”Beck’s is dedicated to serving a community of farmers who love what they do and are proud to be farmers at heart. Learn more at beckshybrids.com. In this Beck’s Yield Check, we check in on northern Indiana with Beck’s Field Sales Agronomist Travis Burnett. He says he’s seeing soybean field averages anywhere from 50 bpa up to 90 bpa.“I’d say as a whole, for a trend, I’m seeing that the later, full maturity soybeans were probably better than some of the earlier beans. So, that’s a positive thing. I know we talked earlier in the harvest that some guys were a little disappointed where they didn’t catch enough rain there in August with those earlier beans, but it seems like the little rain that we did get there in early September did help finish some of those later, or fuller season, soybeans. So, typically, guys are little happier with the fuller season beans and the yields they’re getting there.”Burnett says corn yields remain very strong.“In some of the better parts of the state, lots of field averages in the 240s in places. As you move into some of the more droughty, more stressed acres, yields in the 180s or so are not uncommon even there where they caught the right timing of rain. That’s a big win on those soil types.” Previous articleMeat Institute Calls for Mandatory Labeling of Cell-Based ProductsNext articleNorthern Indiana Yields Remain Strong on the HAT Tuesday Podcast Eric Pfeifferlast_img read more

Secret services raid journalist’s home to arrest ex-minister who blew whistle on tapping

first_imgNews Receive email alerts RSF_en With firing of four editors, “repolonisation” under way in Poland Follow the news on Poland News News Reporters Without Borders has learned that members of the special services entered the apartment of freelance journalist Sylwester Latkowski in the early hours of this morning in order to arrest former interior minister Janusz Kaczmarek in connection with a leak about an anti-corruption operation.Kaczmarek, who was fired as interior minister at the start of the month, testified on 22 August to the parliament’s secret services commission that the phones of journalists critical of the government were tapped on the orders of justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro and Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski. “Today’s secret service raid on the home of a journalist as he and a colleague were preparing an article for Polityka on the tapping of the phones of journalists and opposition politicians is disturbing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the authorities to establish a special parliamentary commission to look into the tapping of journalists’ phones.”Latkowski said he was stunned by the raid on his apartment. “I am afraid, I no longer have any confidence in state institutions,” he said. Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News PolandEurope – Central Asia —————————————————————24.08.2007 : Ex-minister accuses intelligence services of tapping journalists’ phonesFormer government member Janusz Kaczmarek, who was fired as interior minister earlier this month, reportedly told a behind-closed-doors meeting of the parliamentary commission for the secret services on 22 August that the phones of journalists critical of the government were tapped on the orders of justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro and Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski.“It is unacceptable that a European Union member allows such practices to take place,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Even if Polish journalists think these practices are common, it in no way reduces their gravity. It is outrageous that the secret services were told to try to manipulate the executives and editors of leading news media. This should be the subject of a high-level independent enquiry.”The press freedom organisation added: “Kaczmarek said he was ready to testify to a special parliamentary commission. We hope that such a commission will be created, even if the ruling Law and Justice Party blocked the creation of two other parliamentary commission requested by the opposition.Kaczmarek’s testimony to the parliamentary commission for the secret services was revealed by opposition legislators, including Pawel Gras of the PO and Jerzy Szmajdzinski of the SLD. They said he named two journalists whose phones had been tapped – Wojciech Czuchnowski of Gazeta Wyborcza and Maciej Duda, who used to work for the national daily Rzeczpospolita.According to Gras and Szmajdzinski, Kaczmarek accused Ziobro of using the entire security apparatus (police, prosecutors and secret services), with the Prime Minister’s full agreement, to reinforce the government’s authority and weaken the opposition. He also reportedly claimed that the secret services were told to look for ways to compromise and blackmail the owners of three leading media – the TV stations Polsat and TVN and the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza.A longtime close ally of Ziobro, Kaczmarek said he was fired because he could no longer go along with the government’s way of working. “We live in a totalitarian state,” he said.Ziobro and six other ministers held a news conference at the office’s of the president yesterday to deny Kaczmarek’s allegations. They accused him to trying to discredit Poland’s judicial and security apparatus at the behest of “Poland’s enemies.” However, they refused to respond to any specific allegations, citing the requirements of state and judicial confidentiality.

U.S. Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Bank’s Appeal in ‘Stripping Off’ Mortgage Cases

Caulkett and Bank of America v. Toledo-Cardona following the bank’s appeal in both cases, which were both decided in favor of the homeowners by the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals back in May. The Supreme Court said in granting the petition on Monday that it would consolidate the two cases and allot one hour for oral arguments.In the cases of the Florida homeowners in Melbourne and Tampa, each had second mortgages on their homes originated by Bank of America. When the homeowners could no longer pay their debts following the housing market crash of 2008, they both filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and asked the bankruptcy judge to extinguish their second mortgages based on the fact that they were underwater – or in other words, they owed more than the properties were worth. The judge erased both of the Bank of America mortgages, hence “stripping off” the mortgages, and the decision was upheld in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.The bank argued that the practice of stripping off mortgages should be banned, just as “stripping down” mortgages were  outlawed in a case the Supreme Court decided in 1992. In that decision, the court made it illegal for underwater homeowners to escape a claim from a creditor on a mortgage by “stripping down” the mortgage to its current market value.Bank of America’s representatives said in the court filing that this is a critical area of bankruptcy law that will affect many Chaper 7 bankruptcy filings.
