Ocado sales increase but jury still out

first_img Ocado sales increase but jury still out ONLINE grocer Ocado yesterday reported a 27 per cent sales rise in the four weeks to Christmas – but some analysts still questioned the company’s progress following a troubled float. The firm posted gross sales of £50.9m for the period, helped by more customers shopping online instead of going to supermarkets in freezing weather conditions.Ocado was forced to slash the price for its initial public offering (IPO) in July to 180p – down from initial hopes of 200p and 275p – after retail analysts and fund managers claimed the business had been overvalued.The share price hit a low of 120p in October before bouncing back to 184p. It closed at 181p yesterday. Chief executive Tim Steiner said yesterday: “We are delighted to see the continued growth in demand for Ocado. A record number of customers shopped with us in this period.” In a statement the company added “Ocado has done exactly what it said it would do at the time of the flotation” and added that the group was in line with market expectations for full-year earnings. Ocado, which sells Waitrose groceries through its website, is due to report preliminary full year results on 1 February.ANALYST VIEWS: IS OCADO ON TRACK TO DELIVER FOR INVESTORS? CLIVE BLACK | SHORE CAPITALWe had felt that Ocado may have had a stronger order flow through the inclement weather, albeit with some disruption costs. The overall Ocado performance is broadly in-line with our expectations but the investment case does not change in our minds. Sell.PHILIP DORGAN | ALTIUM SECURITIESThe trouble is that Ocado has no earnings, or cash generation and its asset value post equity raise is just 30p per share. Also, it is definitely not Facebook. We believe that this is a fair starting point for valuation. We are therefore maintaining our Sell recommendation.NICK BUBB | ARDENThe sales figures today will be picked over by the bears, but they look pretty good to us, albeit the final results are not far away now (on 1 February). That is probably a more important share price catalyst.

Shannon Paku incredible finish from 2007 Air NZ Cup

first_imgMonday Jul 7, 2008 Shannon Paku incredible finish from 2007 Air NZ Cup With the Air New Zealand Cup, New Zealand’s premier domestic rugby competition, kicking off in only a few weeks time, we thought it would be a good idea to randomly feature a few of the better tries scored in recent times in the tournament, which used to be known as, and is still referred to as, the NPC.This particular try was scored brilliantly by the flying Wellington Lions, Hurricanes, and current New Zealand Maori winger Shannon Paku.After a movement that started back in Wellington’s own half, scrum half Piri Weepu sparked life into the backs as he flew down the wing and bashed into a few North Harbour defenders. Current All Black star Ma’a Nonu then carried it up strongly before it was moved wide through some quick hands, and given to Paku, who had the narrowest of space to work with.His momentum, and a slight touch from the first tackler, meant that he was never going to make it safely into the corner, especially with another tackler coming across. The big dive followed, and with Paku’s body outside of the field of play, airborne, he somehow managed to get the ball down to stylishly finish off a brilliant try.

Renewal and refurbishment of an anonymous existing building without any interest, was developed by exploring the double height until the roof for the creation of a mezzanine space. Save this picture!The building functions as a residence, this proposition is developed in a philosophy that do not imply substantial alterations in the main volume, only the rise of the roof top, as well as the redesign of the roof itself, in order to guarantee the continuity of the St. Catherine’s alley. In the remaining construction, we consider a new occupation, demolishing the small compartments and creating an only and new space (kitchen/laundry and garage) with an interior courtyard.Save this picture!The conception of the exterior volume is influenced by the harbor terminals pavilions made in metal structures and coated wood.Save this picture!The house identification equally appears as an influence of the wood stored in the port and how is identified, with references that normally are painted to identify the lots with big colorful numbers.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessLearning from the slums (2/2): the rediscoveryArticlesWork AC: 49 CitiesArticles Share “COPY” 2008 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/16754/leca-house-ezzo Clipboard CopyHouses•Leça da Palmeira, Portugal Leça House / EzzoSave this projectSaveLeça House / Ezzo Save this picture!+ 20 Share “COPY”center_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/16754/leca-house-ezzo Clipboard Houses Portugal Leça House / Ezzo ArchDaily Architects: EZZO Area Area of this architecture project Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeEZZOOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasWoodLeça da PalmeiraRefurbishmentHouses3D ModelingPortugalPublished on April 02, 2009Cite: “Leça House / Ezzo” 02 Apr 2009.

Students react to the postponed Battle for the Iron Skillet

first_imgFacebook The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Connor Cash Linkedin Connor Cashhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/connor-cash/ ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history TCU Rangers and signature Frog Horn still heard loud and clear amid COVID-19 TCU celebrates with the Iron Skillet after beating SMU in an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Sept. 23, 2016, in Dallas, Texas. TCU defeated SMU 33-3. (AP Photo/Mike Stone) Twittercenter_img Facebook printSet to air during primetime today, the Battle for the Iron Skillet was highly anticipated, especially because it would have been the 100th meeting of the rivals.Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati tweeted last Friday that the game was postponed due to COVID-19 cases among the athletes and support staff, but that TCU and SMU would continue to “monitor dates throughout the season to potentially make up the game.”Read more: COVID-19 cases prompt TCU to postpone home opener against football rival SMU The first football game between the two universities was held in 1915, and since then, there have been only six years when the schools didn’t play each other: 1919, 1920, 1925, 1987, 1988 and 2006.Though the rivalry game has a long history, it wasn’t known as the Battle for the Iron Skillet until 1946. One origin story involves an SMU fan who grilled frog legs on an iron skillet, causing TCU fans to feel disrespected. The victors would win not only the game but also the skillet.Another possibility is that student leaders at the universities created an iron skillet trophy in response to $1,000 of damage from vandalism committed at both schools over a period of several years. SMU won the 1946 trophy, but since then, it has mostly been kept at TCU, as the Horned Frogs’ record against the Dallas university is 51-41-7. The canceling of today’s meeting — the 100th anniversary — sparked negative feelings among TCU fans. Dallas resident and TCU junior Alex Durham was planning to go to the game but was ultimately “disappointed” to hear about the cancelation. Durham’s connection to this rivalry is strong. Several of his family members are TCU alumni, and he has a sister who graduated from SMU. In addition, Durham’s Dallas home is within walking distance of the SMU campus, so the rivalry plays a huge part in his neighborhood and family discussions. He said when SMU wins, its fans talk about the victory long after the game, since TCU is one of the best teams the university plays.“It’s like a Super Bowl for them, and it’s just a normal game.” – Alex Durham Both teams have a mutual interest in playing the game later this year, but there are some challenges to making that happen. Even if a date opened up on the teams’ schedules, players and staff at both schools would need to be healthy and virus-free. Students have varying thoughts about whether the game will happen. “I honestly don’t see how they will be able to make up the game,” said Jimmy Pavelich, a junior at TCU.Although he isn’t confident in the rescheduling of the game, Pavelich still holds out hope. “I would love to see TCU play SMU this year, especially since it is the 100th game, but also because my close family friend goes to SMU and I always enjoy waking up the next morning and texting her after TCU beats SMU.” Linkedin Twitter + posts Previous articleEnrollment 2% less than target, spring break canceled amid pandemicNext articleWhat we’re reading: 9/11 commemorations, Wisconsin blocks absentee ballots Connor Cash RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution last_img read more

US forces release al-Arabiya’s Fallujah correspondent

He was wearing a jacket with the word “Press” in English and Arabic at the time of his arrest, Al-Arabiya said.In a phone call to Al-Arabiya that was broadcast live, Al-Saadi described the circumstances of his arrest and detention along with “2,000 to 2,500” other Iraqis: “They put us in actual cages, made of barbed wire in front, sandbags at the back and on either side, and a sheet of wood overhead. It was horrible because of the cold and the fact we were not given enough blankets.”He said he was interrogated like the other detainees. Their place of detention “was what used to be called Camp Tarek or the People’s Mujahideen base,” he added, referring to an Iranian armed opposition group.——————————–17.11.2004Reporters Without Borders calls on US forces to free Al-Arabiya correspondent in Falluja Reporters Without Borders has called on US forces in Falluja to release the correspondent for Al-Arabiya satellite television, Abdel Kader Al-Saadi, whom they arrested in the town on 11 November.”We call for the immediate release of Abdel Kader Al-Saadi who has been held for six days,” said the worldwide press free organisation in a 17 November letter to Lt. Gen. John F. Sattler, first expeditionary corps marine commander in Falluja.”The American authorities must at least justify the reasons for his prolonged detention,” said the letter.The journalist, who is originally from Falluja, remained in the town to cover the fighting for his TV station and gave himself up to US forces along with numerous civilians living in Falluja.Al-Arabiya announced on 16 November that the US army had arrested its correspondent in Falluja. The US forces confirmed they were holding him and told the station that he would be released “as quickly as possible”.Editor Nabil Khatib told Reporters Without Borders that he was “very worried for the safety of Al-Saadi. We are impatiently waiting for the American forces to release him, all the more so since we have already suffered heavy losses in Iraq. Eight of our employees have died since March 2003, three of them journalists killed by the American army.”According to Al-Arabiya, their correspondent was arrested on 11 November “with a large number of other citizens” who obeyed military orders to civilians to gather in Falluja’s mosques. Al-Saadi was carrying proof that he was a journalist.Al-Saadi covered the fighting between Islamist insurgents and US and Iraqi forces until 11 November, on which date the TV station lost all contact with him.Reporter Ali Al-Khatib and cameraman Ali Abdel Aziz of Al-Arabiya were killed on 18 March 2004 by US shooting at a check-point as they covered the aftermath of a rocket attack on a Baghdad hotel. On 29 March, the American army accepted responsibility for their deaths, saying the shooting was “accidental”.Al-Arabiya journalist Mazen Al-Tomaizi was killed by missiles fired from an American helicopter while providing live coverage of an attack on a Bradley tank in the streets of Baghdad.

Brundidge residents making stand for safety at Galloway Park

first_img Email the author Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder Corri Bailey is not calling Saturday’s “Take Back Our Park” event a rally around the flag, but she is suggesting that everyone wear red, white and blue to show solidarity in the efforts to make Galloway Park in Brundidge a safe place for children to play.“Take Back Our Park” will be from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Galloway Park and will include games, contests and a hotdog lunch and watermelons. A highlight of the event will be a homerun derby. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.“What this event will hopefully do is show those people that are abusing the park and keeping others from enjoying it that we are not going to stand back and let them take Galloway Park from the kids,” Bailey said. “Our children need a place where they can go to play and feel safe. The way the park is now, we can’t let our children go there to play. It has been taken over by people that are drinking alcohol, doing drugs and selling drugs.” Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like New physical therapy practice seeks to help patients at all stages of life, Dr. Stephen Greer, manager and lead physical therapist at Health Actions of Troy.

I’ve been told that Galloway Park has been a hangout for years and nothing is going to change. But I don’t believe it. I think the park can be a safe place for people of all ages. I invite all of those who believe that, too, or just want to believe it, to come out Saturday with the attitude that we can make a difference.” The Brundidge City Council voted Tuesday in support of creating a new $500,000 park, which will include a splash pad and recreational trail.“That park is in the same neighborhood,” Bailey said. “If we keep letting Galloway Park be a beer garden and worse, that same thing could happen at the new park on the other side of Galloway Road. We’ve got to ‘Take Back Our Park’ and then make sure that every park and every place in Brundidge is safe for children, for all of us.” Published 3:00 am Friday, July 1, 2016 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Bailey said not only is the park being taken away from the children, a cloud has been cast over the neighborhood. “People who live around the park are uneasy because when people are drinking and doing drugs, you never know what might happen,” she said.Bailey envisions Saturday’s event as one straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting.“We want children to come and play games, eat ice cream and watermelon and enjoy being together,” Bailey said. “I don’t think it’s asking too much for a community to have a place like that.” Brundidge residents making stand for safety at Galloway Park Print Articlelast_img read more

University criticised over Rohingya crisis

first_img“The students need to confront Oxford University administration as to why it is behaving like business as usual over its close links with both Aung San Suu Kyi and her Ministry of Education, which runs Yangon University.”Dr. Zarni was a panel member at last night’s Oxford University Islamic Society event entitled ‘Rohingya: The Silent Genocide?’ hosted at Pembroke College.Affnafee Rahman, Politics Chair of the Islamic Society, told Cherwell: “The Rohingya crisis is central to every Oxford student.“The first step for Oxford students is to learn the history, engage in the discussion and discourse and this will take time but I am sure with time we can take the right course of action.”“The panel is here to discuss the human rights violations against the Rohingya, they are here to explore ideas as to how this injustice can be brought to an end.”“As for what the University should do, it should be done through formal protests coordinated by all the JCRs and MCRs and not any individual Societies [to] get as many students and academics involved to eventually revoke Suu Kyi’s degree.”A spokesperson for Oxford University told Cherwell: “The Oxford programme spans a number of academic disciplines, with the goal of supporting peaceful and inclusive democracy, strengthened rule of law, and the provision of greater economic opportunities through higher education.“The University remains committed to these ideals, and hopes the Myanmar administration led by Aung Sang Sui Kyi can eliminate discrimination and oppression, and demonstrate to the world that Myanmar values the lives of all its citizens.” Oxford University has been criticised for its links with Myanmar’s University of Yangon by a panellist who appeared at an Islamic Society event.Dr. Maung Zarni alleged that the University of Yangon “is fully controlled by the government that is widely accused of committing crimes against humanity and even a genocide”.Myanmar, and its leader Aung Sang Suu Kyi, have been condemned worldwide for treatment of the Rohingya people.Zarni said in a recent column: “The fact that Yangon University, its faculty and graduates are engaged in this classic denial of atrocities, should be an alarm call and a serious concern for Oxford University administration.”He added: “It is high time that the leadership of the University reviewed its institutional ties to Myanmar’s higher education sector.”Oxford University established links and a programme of assistance with universities in Myanmar in 2015, following the election of the country’s first democratic government.The Myanmar Education Ministry reportedly expelled over three dozen students for recently holding a protest demanding an increase in the educational budget for universities.By reviewing their links, he said, the “administration of the University of Oxford still have a chance to do the right thing and avoid being recorded in the annals of genocide as a by-stander at best, complicit at worst, in the ongoing Burmese genocide.”Dr. Zarni told Cherwell: “Oxford students need to be informed about the fact that there is a growing call for the university’s most iconic graduate, namely Aung San Suu Kyi, to be tried at the International Criminal Court for her complicity and culpability in the crimes against humanity and even genocide.”last_img read more

Pregnant Teens Can Consent To Medical Care Under House Bill

first_imgPregnant Teens Can Consent To Medical Care Under House BillFebruary 20, 2019  By Bryan WellsTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS–Weeks after the Indiana Senate rejected a similar bill, the Indiana House voted unanimously Tuesday for a measure that lets pregnant teenagers give consent to receive medical care.Unlike the bill that died in the Senate, House Bill 1547 included a provision requiring medical providers to make a reasonable attempt to contact parents or guardians.But a minor who is at least 16 years old can give consent for medical care for prenatal services, labor and delivery, and postpartum care if no parent or guardian is available.Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer, the Beech Grove Republican who authored the bill, aid that “we hope in all cases that there is a parent or guardian to help guide the health care decisions. However, we all know, we all know too well, that in today’s age, that’s always not the case.”Kirchhofer made it clear that some young teens going through pregnancy don’t have the family or guardian support needed to carry out medical decisions.“Families are sometimes not intact, sometimes the individual is suffering from substance use disorder, or a parent can be incarcerated, or just out of the picture,” she said.Kirchhofer said that in those cases, or “in the case of a parent’s refusal, we give the health care providers the direction to provide treatment that’s in the best interest of the minor.”Parents or legal guardians will still be able to access health care treatment and information that was provided by the health officials.The bill is part of a state effort to reduce Indiana’s infant and maternal mortality rates, which exceed the national averages.“Again,” Kirchhofer emphasized, “healthy moms, healthy babies.”FOOTNOTE: Bryan Wells is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
