Meanwhile, the forecast for inflation moved only at the bottom end, edging from a range of 1.1 to 1.7 per cent to 1.3 to 1.7 per cent.“Under those circumstances, we don’t anticipate that the Fed will call an early halt to its plan to buy a total of $600bn (£373.5bn) of Treasury securities by mid-year,” said Paul Ashworth of Capital Economics. However, the downside risks to growth and dangers of deflation had “diminished,” the Fed announced, declaring faith in a sustainable recovery, with the economy “on a firmer footing” than previously thought. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Compass snaps up two Indian caterers

first_img CATERING giant Compass has bought two firms in india.The company has snapped up Delhi-based Vipul Facility Management, which has gross assets of 342.2m Indian rupees (£5.2m) and Hyderabad-based Ultimate Hospitality Services (UHS) for 42.1 rupees.Compass chief executive Richard Cousins said: “VFM provides an excellent platform to develop our support services capabilities in the region and enables us to offer an extended range of services to clients,” said Compass chief executive Richard Cousins.“UHS further enhances our existing foodservice offering in India and provides a strong foothold in the Hyderabad region.”Last week Edenred, the French pre-paid meal vouchers group, denied that it was in contact with Compass, the world’s biggest caterer, amid speculation it was in talks about a tie-up. Speculation that Compass Group could be preparing a bid for Edenred had already boosted its stock in November.

A FTSE 100 stock I own and will never sell

first_imgA FTSE 100 stock I own and will never sell Royston Wild owns shares of DS Smith. The Motley Fool UK has recommended DS Smith and Tesco.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It stands to reason that FTSE 100 stock Tesco is dominating the financial headlines on Wednesday. The UK’s largest retailer is a perfect barometer for the issues the broader sector has experienced since the coronavirus outbreak.With the grocery goliath all over the news, another Footsie share updating the market today has gone under the radar. DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) has put out a much brighter update than its blue-chip colleague. In fact it should be commanding much stronger attention given its success in these turbulent times. As a shareholder in this particular share, I am very happy with what I saw.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Geographical diversity creates strengthFor the uninitiated, DS Smith is a business that provides packaging requirements for consumer goods companies. This includes, most notably, FMCG firms, and to a more limited extent, industrial firms. The FTSE 100 share operates in almost 40 countries and has a significant and rising presence in Europe and the US. Its sprawling presence has been underpinned by a strong appetite for acquisitions over many years.It has a critical role in the supply of essential goods like foods and household products. And this gives it the sort of defensive strength needed in times of challenging economic, political and social times like these. That’s a quality it highlighted today when declaring that “trading since our update on 4 March 2020 has remained resilient with relatively limited impact from Covid-19 seen to date.”Corrugated box volumes have been “good”, the firm adding that demand has actually picked up during the first six months of the current fiscal year (to October). Its operations in Southern Europe have endured some weakness, sure. But the impact has been much less in the north of the continent. And in Eastern Europe, the pandemic has had no “meaningful effect” at all. Recent trading in North America meanwhile is described as being “robust.”One of my favourite FTSE 100 stocksAs one would expect, panic buying means that its activity within the grocery sector has been particularly strong in recent weeks. This is not the only reason why it has thrived, however. It has also benefited from rising online demand for both discretionary and essential items. No doubt this is a reflection of increased numbers of shoppers switching to internet retailing because of lockdowns. E-commerce is a segment in which the business has ramped up investment in recent times.A fly in the ointment is that DS Smith decided to axe the interim dividend given the uncertain outlook for the global economy. But this is a prudent step in the circumstances. And it’s certainly no suggestion of a weak balance sheet. Its net debt-to-EBITDA ratio should still come in at a healthy 2 times as of the end of April. And it has £1.bn worth of undrawn loan facilities.At current prices DS Smith trades on a forward P/E ratio below 10 times. This is far too cheap given its mighty defensive qualities, I believe. And let’s not forget its exceptional long-term outlook. I’m tempted to load up on some more of this FTSE 100 share at current prices.

Uruguay complete Rugby World Cup 2015 line-up

first_img Jumping for joy: Uruguayan players celebrate after beating Russia to earn a place at RWC 2015 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS FOOTBALL IS still number one in South America, but anyone present at Estadio Charrua in Montevideo on Saturday afternoon when Uruguay took on Russia will be aware that there is plenty of passion for rugby too.The crowd was in fine voice for a stirring national anthem and that vocal support continued throughout the 80 minutes, although it’s impossible to condone the whistling that accompanied every Russian place-kick. The noise reached a crescendo when the final whistle blew on the second leg of the play-off final and sealed Uruguay’s passage to the 2015 World Cup.Los Teros may have lost the first leg in Siberia 22-21, but they came out on top against the Russians at home to win 36-27 and earn a place in their first Rugby World Cup for 12 years, where they will play in Pool A with England, Australia, Wales and Fiji. Welcome back!With the arrival of a second South American team in rugby’s showpiece tournament alongside Argentina, it’s worth looking at the wider picture and the growing popularity of the oval-ball game on the continent. That is shown in the finer details.The man on the bus in Buenos Aires sporting an Ulster rugby shirt. The rugby pitch located on a patch of grass between the River Plate and a dual carriageway in Montevideo, and the gent walking alongside it decked out in an All Blacks jacket.More pertinently, there are the Argentine schoolchildren who, following Los Pumas’ victory over Australia in the Rugby Championship, picked up a football last week and started to pass it to each other.Crowd pleaser: children flock around the World Cup at Buenos Aires Cricket & Rugby ClubA famous win always helps to generate a buzz – so too a famous trophy. The Webb Ellis Cup has visited various clubs and schools in Argentina and Uruguay over the past few days as part of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour, receiving many an ecstatic reception. TAGS: Uruguay Children at Buenos Aires Cricket & Rugby Club swarmed around the trophy when it visited their ground on Wednesday to mark the club’s 150th anniversary. The numbers in attendance – more than 100 boys aged 12 to 14 were training – would have made many a UK club envious. The kids enjoyed the fact there were cameras capturing the action too, three doing the can-can as a lens approached when they bound together for a scrum. Another young boy was simply entranced by the trophy, staring into a golden reflection for a few minutes as if he couldn’t believe the sight in front of him.When the Webb Ellis Cup made an early-morning visit to Colegio Cardenal Newman – alma mater of Felipe Contepomi – the following day it was greeted by rapturous applause. It was a similar story at San Pedro Claver school, where children lined the walls and the balcony to get a glimpse of the trophy.Travelling the world: the Webb Ellis Cup stops off at the Montevideo sign in UruguayOver in Uruguay, a plethora of mini rugby players from various clubs took to the field at Estadio Charrua ahead of the play-off final and when the Webb Ellis Cup made an appearance on the pitch it drew quite a crowd.The passion for rugby is obvious and there is plenty of potential to tap into as well. Premiership Rugby’s award-winning HITZ programme hopes to do just that. The project in Argentina, which is supported by Land Rover and the British Council, is aiming to introduce 40,000 young people to rugby over the next three years, which can only help in generating future generations of players.Rugby is never likely to replace football in the affections of South Americans but there are more people picking up the oval ball – and with Uruguay and Argentina both now part of RWC 2015 who knows how popular the game could become. Los Teros have secured the last place at next year’s World Cup – here’s a look at how rugby is growing in South America Land Rover is a worldwide partner of Rugby World Cup 2015 and a presenting partner of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour.

And to Apopka’s surprise, Jones scored three touchdowns in the first two quarters and led the Blue Darters 21-0 at halftime.But then a funny thing happened that night and into the next two games for Apopka – no one has scored on them since.Apopka’s second-half rally fell short as they lost to Jones 21-12, but then they followed that game with two straight shutout victories of District 8A-4 opponents West Orange (10-0), and Orlando Evans (28-0). In total, the Blue Darters have outscored their opponents 50-0 in the last 10 quarters.Apopka, now 6-1 and 4-0 in the district, take that momentum into a matchup against the Lake Mary Rams that will decide the District 8A-4 championship. The Rams, 5-3 and 3-1 in the district, are coming off a 35-14 win over Ocoee. This would be the first district title for Apopka since 2016.The Blue Darters, after those two straight shutout wins, are ranked #5 in the Associated Press Florida High School 8A poll. They are also ranked #3 in the RPI playoff poll in 8A Region 1. A win against the Rams would guarantee the Blue Darters a home playoff game in the first round. 8. Bloomingdale 6-2 14 7 10.

Lote Tuqiri smashes Jerry Flannery at the final whistle

first_imgTuesday Jun 17, 2008 Lote Tuqiri smashes Jerry Flannery at the final whistle If you watched Saturdays test between the Wallabies and Ireland all the way to the end, as I trust you did, you would have seen a few huge hits flying in from the home team as time ran out.Ireland, who had fought so bravely throughout, tried desperately to keep the ball alive and get down field for a winning score, but it was not to be, as the only big event at the end of the match was this devastating hit by Lote Tuqiri on Irish hooker Jerry Flannery.Flannery got a horrible high pass which he had to jump up to take. Lote saw the opportunity present itself, and flew in at Flannery, smashing him to the ground and giving the Victorian crowd something else to cheer about as their team came out on top.Watch the hit, and then keep an eye on Flannery as play goes on. This one really hurt, as I’d say most one on one encounters with Lote Tuqiri would.

One by one, censorship forces N’Djamena newspapers to stop publishing

first_imgNews Chadian radio stations on strike in protest against violent raid December 1, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders today urged Chad’s parliament to allow the N’Djamena-based print media to resume publishing freely as long as they respect the laws that were in force before a state of emergency was declared on 13 November. One by one, most of the capital’s privately-owned newspapers have stopped publishing because of the state of emergency’s absurd restrictions, and only one is still appearing. The biweekly N’Djamena Bi-hebdo and the weekly Le Temps opted not to publish until the state of emergency’s initial 12-day period expires, after which parliament’s approval is needed for any extension. Only Le Progrès, a privately-owned daily that supports the government, is still appearing normally.Nadjikimo Benoudjita, the managing editor of the weekly Notre Temps, told Reporters Without Borders he decided to stop publishing until the lifting of the state of emergency after the National Security Agency (ANS) ordered him to stop referring to the armed clashes in the east of the country.On 15 November, around 15 secret service employees came to his home, which is located next to the newspaper, and seized all the copies they could find of the latest issue, which had appeared that day. Street vendors with copies of the latest issue were also forced to surrender them to the police. Benoudjita also had to undertake not to distribute any copies that had not been confiscated. The next day, he was summoned by the police director general, who warned him not to try to elude the prior censorship mechanisms that had just been established under the state of emergency.Benoudjita had nonetheless obtained permission from the attorney general to distribute the 15 November issue after asking him, since it was printed before the state of emergency proclamation, if the prior censorship was retroactive.Abdelnasser Garboa, the editor of the weekly L’Observateur, told Reporters Without Borders that the communication ministry’s censorship committee today ordered him to modify the layout of tomorrow’s issue so that there was no reference to the censored articles. Like most of the newspapers still publishing, last week’s issue displayed black strips with the words “Censored section.” Garboa refused to bow to this demand and told Reporters Without Borders he was very upset. “I no longer know what to do,” he said. “This is bordering on the absurd. They even suppressed the passages where we wrote that France is supporting Chad, although both governments have officially acknowledged and welcomed this.”To show the retrograde nature of the censorship introduced on 13 November, Reporters Without Borders is publishing facsimiles of pages 1, 2 and 3 of the 15-21 November issue of Le Temps, as censored.

10 NGOs urge Russia not to cut its Internet off from rest of the world

first_img News News Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing Credit: Alexander Nemenov / AFP Organisation Update: The “sovereign Internet” bill was signed into law by President Vladimir Putin on 1 May. RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesOnline freedoms Internet Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) and 9 other international human rights NGOs call on Vladimir Putin not to sign the “Sovereign Internet” bill into law because it would take Russia across a major new threshold in online censorship.Internet freedom is now just a distant memory in Russia but the law that the Russian parliament’s upper house approved on 22 April and President Putin is poised to sign would take Russia much closer to the Chinese model of online censorship. It aims to establish a “sovereign” Russian Internet that is independent of the international Internet and is closely controlled by the Kremlin.Internet service providers would be required to direct traffic through a centralized system of devices controlled by the state, with approved Internet exchange points, and to use a national domain name system (DNS). This would facilitate surveillance and, in the event of unspecified “security threats,” would allow the authorities to block traffic between Russia and the rest of the World Wide Web partially or fully, and within Russia.The joint statement by the 10 NGOs points out that this law violates Russia’s international human rights obligations and, in particular, threatens press freedom and its citizens’ right to information. With its broad and overly vague wording, the law is all the more disturbing because it would reinforce an already well-stocked arsenal of repressive legislation.Russia is ranked 149th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.Read the joint statement May 5, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further Follow the news on Russia News Related documents statement_internet_isolation_russia-final.pdfPDF – 89.95 KBjoint_statement_runet_bill_rus_proof-read.pdfPDF – 90.45 KB RSF_en Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown June 2, 2021 Find out more News Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Help by sharing this information April 24, 2019 – Updated on May 7, 2019 10 NGOs urge Russia not to cut its Internet off from rest of the world RussiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesOnline freedoms Internet May 21, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Outrage over court decision returning newspaper journalist to prison

first_img Reporters Without Borders voiced dismay today on learning that reporter Mostapha Hurmatallah of the Arabic-language weekly Al Watan Al An was sent back to prison on 19 February as a result of a decision by the country’s court of final appeal on 13 February confirming a seven-month prison sentence. Hurmatallah had been on conditional release.“We are outraged that Hurmatallah has been imprisoned again,” the press freedom organisation said. “This case was the cause of a serious deterioration in press freedom in Morocco last year. We had naively assumed that his provisional release could indicate a desire to reduce the tension, but we were wrong. Re-imprisoning a journalist who has committed no crime leaves us shocked and concerned about the state of freedoms in Morocco.”The ruling by the country’s highest appeal court in Casablanca upheld a lower appeal court’s decision confirming Hurmatallah’s conviction on a charge of “receiving documents obtained by criminal means.” The case was prompted by a series of stories in the 14 July issue headlined “The secret reports behind Morocco’s state of alert.” He was initially sentenced on 15 August to eight months in prison but the appeal court reduced the sentence in September to seven months and a fine of 1,000 dirhams (89 euros).Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Al Watan Al An editor Abderrahim Ariri, who got five-month suspended sentence from the appeal court in September, criticised the ambiguity of a government that “promises a liberal press law while issuing prison sentences against journalists.” RSF_en News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa February 21, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Outrage over court decision returning newspaper journalist to prison News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Organisation to go furthercenter_img Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The proposals follow the guidelines set forth by AB 288, a bill passed in 2015 that established the College and Career Access Pathway Act, a measure that allowed community colleges to enter into formal agreements with local school districts.“The PCC desires to continue to collaborative effort within the guidelines of AB 288 for the purpose of expanding dual enrollment opportunities for students who may not already be college bound or who are underrepresented in higher education, with the goal of developing seamless pathways from high school to community college for career technical education and preparation to transfer, improving high school graduation rates and helping high school pupils achieve college and career readiness,” read an official proposal document on Pasadena City’s education website.To take advantage of dual enrollment, students must complete and submit a Dual Enrollment Application, have parental consent, complete prerequisite requirements and obtain written documentation by education officials that prove they have been approved to enroll in a college-level course, according to proposal documents. Furthemore, students enrolled in dual enrollment courses shall be held to the same standards of achievement as students on college campuses.The full agenda may be seen here: http://pasadena.edu/governance/board-of-trustees/docs/66-2016-9-7-Agenda-board-of-trustees.pdfThe meeting will take place at Pasadena City College’s Creveling Lounge located at 1570 East Colorado Boulevard.

Not pictured: chef Gale Kohl.Hillsides, a Southern California foster care and mental health charity, has launched a Culinary Apprenticeship Program to help youth gain the knowledge and skills needed to obtain employment in the culinary field. The program is a partnership between Hillsides Youth Moving On (YMO) program, which offers workforce development and other services to youth formerly in foster care, and Hillsides Innovation Department, which identifies and evaluates innovative strategies and solutions for the charity.The 10-week course will provide 12 young adults across Hillsides’ programs the opportunity to work with six local chefs. Each week will begin with a customer-service workshop from a local Starbucks store manager and end with the young adults working in the kitchen with one to two chefs to learn important kitchen skills and cook a different dish. The culinary experience will end with a final event where the chefs and young adults will prepare a five-course meal for 50 guests.“We are so excited to provide a supportive environment in which youth can receive culinary, job, and life skills training,” said Correnda Perkins, the division chief of Hillsides transitional-aged youth. “The experience will also provide the youth with the mentorship and support they need not only to gain hands-on food prep and cooking experience but to achieve their full potential in life.”The local chefs in the apprenticeship program are Charlie Negrete, former chef director of the culinary job training program at LA Kitchen, who has worked under Michelin starred chefs and 5 Star establishments such as the Peninsula Hotel, the Jonathan Club, and the Terranea Resort; Claud Beltran, co-owner and chef at Bacchus’ Kitchen in Pasadena and co-owner of Claud Beltran & Co Catering; Gale Kohl, a 20-year veteran of the food service industry and owner of Gale’s Restaurant in Pasadena; Doug Fore, who has opened 12 restaurants in his career and consulted for numerous organizations and restaurants such as Disney, Bon Appétit, and Stonefire Grill; Alexandra Poer, chef-owner of alexandra’s table with a 26-year culinary career; and Geoff Jennings, owner of Nomad Ice Pops.The chefs are donating their time and expertise to Hillsides because they feel it is important to mentor the next generation of chefs, especially considering some in the program have faced childhoods spent in foster care or other adversities. “Sharing my story, knowledge, and culinary journey with youth is important to me,” said chef Claud Beltran.Some of the participating youth have found food and cooking to be therapeutic in their lives. Ricky Porter, 23, used cooking as a way to bond with the 25 different foster families he lived with from the time he was two days old until he turned 21. “Growing up in foster care, I lived with families from many different cultures, and what brought every family together and made them smile was food,” he said.Ricky, who along the way mastered several recipes, from peanut butter cookies to breaded chicken to mocha-flavored cake frosting, one day hopes to open an organic vegan café. “In this apprenticeship program, I look forward to gaining knowledge, learning how a culinary business can be run, and to making lasting connections,” he said.Local Starbucks managers Christina Aguilar and James Valeriano have volunteered to provide the customer service workshop and will also lead a session on barista skills. Starbucks has a history of supporting Hillsides. In 2017 and 2018, The Starbucks Foundation awarded Hillsides a $30,000 grant for the YMO workforce development program. Local Starbucks partners also support the YMO workforce development program by leading a series of career workshops for youth, participating in YMO’s annual resource fair, and hiring youth at local Starbucks stores. In addition, for the last 10 years, Starbucks stores throughout the San Gabriel Valley have supported an annual holiday toy drive for Hillsides, raising thousands of dollars in gifts and toys for children in need.The youth chef training will run through August 19. The dining event will be held on August 25 at the First United Methodist Church Pasadena, 500 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena.Hillsides’ YMO program is one of Hillsides’ five core programs and offers a continuum of support services for transition-aged youth 16 – 25 that includes a Peer Resource drop-in center, housing services, and workforce development. Hillsides Innovation Department leads the effort to identify and evaluate innovative strategies, solutions, experimental designs, and practices to support Hillsides’ mission and impact with the communities it serves.About HillsidesHillsides is dedicated to healing children and young adults, strengthening families, and transforming communities through quality comprehensive services and advocacy. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the agency serves almost 17,000 children and families in Southern California throughout more than 40 sites, including school-based mental health offices in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Baldwin Park.

Referring to Para 24 of the said judgment, the bench comprising Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and KM Joseph said:This paragraph makes it clear beyond any doubt that Article 136 cannot be used to circumvent the statutory scheme which is contained in Section 50 of the Arbitration Act of 1996. If an Award is enforced under Section 48 by a learned Single Judge of the High Court, no appeal against such judgment shall lie. Obviously, the statutory scheme indicates that even if there be an incorrect judgment by a learned Single Judge on facts or law, such judgment is not appealable. This being the case, we clearly laid down in paragraph 24 (supra) that an appeal under Article 136 would lie on an extremely narrow ground; only if some new or unique point is raised as to the interpretation of the Arbitration Act which has not been answered by the Supreme Court.With regard to the observation in the said judgment that such an appeal would only be in a very exceptional case of a blatant disregard of Section 48 of the Arbitration Act, the bench further observed:Blatant disregard of Section 48 in very exceptional cases is not a mantra to be used indiscriminately. Unfortunately, we find that case after case comes before us attempting to fit a square peg into a round hole. The present case does not remotely contain any feature that would open the gates of our jurisdiction under Article 136 as laid in paragraph 24 (supra).”The court therefore dismissed the SLP by imposing Rs. 10,00,000/- each costs on the petitioners.Case: RESPONSIVE INDUSTRIES LIMITED vs. BANYAN TREE GROWTH CAPITAL L.L.C  [Special Leave to Appeal (C) Nos.11404-11405/2020]Coram: Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and KM JosephCounsel: Sr. Adv.
