Boris agrees to riot summit after protests

first_img Share KCS-content Boris agrees to riot summit after protests Monday 28 March 2011 8:54 pm Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img THE MAYOR of London Boris Johnson (pictured) is to hold a summit for retailers and businesses affected by the violence at Saturday’s anti-cuts protests. Johnson said in a letter to the New West End Company yesterday that he and the Metropolitan Police “want to continue… dialogue and see what lessons can be learned”. Retailers including Fortnum & Mason, Topshop and Boots suffered millions of pounds worth of damage when a small number of protestors at the TUC-organised event smashed store-fronts and daubed paint on the shops. “Anyone seriously interested in growth, jobs and creating opportunities for young people in these difficult times will be disgusted by the violence and disruption in central London on Saturday,” said the mayor in response to the New West End Company, which represents 600 businesses in the area.The group’s chairman Dame Judith Mayhew Jonas wrote to the mayor yesterday calling for a crisis meeting to ensure the area will be protected during future protests. Jonas called for the authorities to force protest organisers to provide their own insurance against damage caused, and plan to keep marches away from “retail and leisure areas where footfall is high”.Home secretary Theresa May told Parliament yesterday that 145 people were arrested in connection with the sit-in protest at Fortnum & Mason, while 201 arrests were made in total. May said she will consult with the police to decide whether to introduce new powers to deal with violent protestors.MPs from all parties condemned the violence yesterday.

Saarland regulator bans ads from two S-H-licenced operators

first_img Email Address Landesmedienanstalt Saarland (LMS), the media and gambling watchdog for the German state of Saarland has banned two Schleswig-Holstein-licensed operators from advertising their products in the state. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Landesmedienanstalt Saarland (LMS), the media and gambling watchdog for the German state of Saarland has banned two Schleswig-Holstein-licensed operators from advertising their products in the state.The LMS did not name the operators but described them as market leading gaming  businesses.The regulator had criticised Schleswig-Holstein-licensed operators in the past for advertising online gambling products across Germany, when Schleswig-Holstein is the only state in which they can currently be offered legally.In September 2019, then-director of the LMS Uwe Conradt accused these operators of flouting advertising restrictions by broadcasting via national channels.With the announcement of the ban, LMS Deputy Director Dr. Jörg Ukrow echoed many of Conradt’s sentiments, arguing that the government of Schleswig-Holstein had agreed to limit operators’ advertising, yet had not taken action.Specifically, Ukrow said that advertisement of gambling must be “proportional” to the areas in which it is legal.“In practice, from our point of view, this limit is no longer noticeable,” Ukrow said. “TV advertising for online casinos appears around far too many programmes and even at times of day when children and adolescents are particularly vulnerable.”Condradt’s successor Ruth Meyer said that, because of this lack of restrictions, LMS had chosen to ban these operators as they, and the “solo effort” of Schleswig-Holstein “endangered” effors to fight against gambling addiction.Germany is set to see a new regulatory framework for gambling introduced from 1 July, 2021, in which online casino, poker and sports betting will be legal across all 16 states, but with many tight restrictions.This fourth State Treaty on Gambling, the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV), includes a €1,000 monthly deposit limit for players across all verticals and slot stakes limited to €1 per spin. The legislation was notiifed to the European Commission in May.This follows the Third State Treaty on Gambling, which was ratified in March 2019, though its implementation has been halted by legal challenges.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rio Tinto HSBC Holdings See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA GlaxoSmithKline BP Diageo center_img BHP Group Image source: Getty Images FTSE 100 Top 10 holdings Over the last five years, the FTSE 100 has underperformed other major stock market indexes such as the S&P 500 and the MSCI All-Country World index by a significant margin. As a result, many investors currently believe that the blue-chip index is ‘cheap’ or ‘undervalued’ compared to other indexes. Is that actually the case though? Let’s take a closer look at the valuation of the UK’s main stock market index.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…Low valuation and high yieldIf you’re just looking at basic valuation metrics such as P/E ratio and dividend yield, then the FTSE 100 certainly does look cheap compared to other indexes.For example, the FTSE 100 currently has a median trailing P/E ratio of 17 according to data from Stockopedia. By contrast, the S&P 500 has a median trailing P/E of 22.3 while Canada’s S&P/TSX Composite index has a P/E of 18.6. Meanwhile, France’s CAC 40 has a median trailing P/E of 18.4.It’s a similar situation with dividend yield, which is another key indicator of value. Currently, the FTSE 100 has a median trailing yield of 3.1%. In comparison, the S&P 500 has a median trailing yield of 2.1%, while the CAC 40 sports a trailing yield of 2.8% and Germany’s DAX has a yield of 2.5%.Going on these metrics alone, the FTSE 100 definitely looks undervalued relative to other indexes.Looking under the bonnetBefore you rush out and buy a FTSE 100 tracker fund to take advantage of the index’s bargain valuation, it’s worth stopping to consider why it is cheap and what you could do to boost your returns as an alternative. One reason the index has lagged others in recent years is that many of the companies at the top of the FTSE 100 (with the largest weightings) are struggling to generate growth.

Source: LSEmarketcapThe largest company in the FTSE 100, Royal Dutch Shell has seen its revenue fall by nearly 20% over the last five years. Meanwhile, the second-largest company in the index, HSBC Holdings, failed to generate any revenue growth between 2013 and 2018. The third-largest holding in the Footsie, Unilever, has done better, registering total revenue growth of 7% between 2014 and 2019, yet that’s not exactly a level of growth to get excited about. Of the three companies, Unilever is the only one that has increased its dividend payout in the last three years.Look at the S&P 500, however, and it’s a completely different story. Here, the top three holdings have all enjoyed strong growth in recent years. For example, the largest holding in the index, Microsoft, has generated five-year revenue growth of 45% while Apple, the second-largest holding, has delivered five-year revenue growth of 42%. Meanwhile, the third-largest holding, Amazon, has generated top-line growth of a very impressive 215%.So, while the FTSE 100 appears cheap and rewarding at first glance, perhaps it isn’t so cheap after all. Looking at the top-line growth of its largest holdings, there appears to be a good reason it trades at a lower valuation than other major indexes at present. That said, looking at individual companies in the FTSE 100, there are certainly quite a few high-quality companies that do look cheap at the moment, in my view.

JWC 2014: England retain title

first_imgThe JWC final in Auckland between England and South Africa’s U20s went right down to the wire, writes Alan Dymock in Auckland Perhaps there are only a handful of future Test stars in this side, with Maro Itoje, Earle, Henry Taylor and Billy Burns (who scored two penalties and a conversion) standing out – but that makes this win all the more encouraging for English fans.This youth team are now consistently nightmarish to face and are producing mentally tough players used to winning. Talk of an dynasty at this level may be ill-founded, but this is good news for the game in England. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Of course there was plenty to get excited about – Kriel’s second try was a swaying, long-range number while a penalty form well over the halfway taken by Aaron Morris was a monster – but England’s coaches will be more impressed with the control and synergy of this win. They’re at it again: England have won the Junior World Championship for the second year in a row They did it, just. England U20 won the Junior World Championships for the second year in a row after defeating South Africa 21-20.England and South Africa scored two tries apiece, but this was a game more about grit and intelligence than scoring bucket loads of tries. So while Nathan Earle dotting down at the right place at the right time and Joel Conlon dumping himself over the line were great moments for England, as was an impressively dynamic brace for South African centre Jesse Kriel, it was the little moments that secured this title.The JWC has had pundits in New Zealand wagging tongues all month as teams showed almost psychotic desire to attack. Refreshing. Fun. But it was a missed drop-goal attempt by eventual player of the tournament Handre Pollard and a crucial English scrum penalty deep in their own territory in the last five minutes that helped secure this result.last_img read more

The design of the new house is driven by the site conditions and a desire to achieve a sensitive yet abstracted dialogue between old and new. The simple form of the extension extrudes the plan form of the old house and a striking visual contrast, yet reinforcing materiality is established – most visible from the main road.Save this picture!© Trevor MeinFor the owners, practicality, comfort and low maintenance were the key principles to the design brief along with a desire to minimize the number of materials used to achieve high quality zero maintenance finishes, whilst fitting within a tight budget. A single external material – Zincalume ribbed cladding, echoes the roof of the old house and is used to clad the entire form of walls, hipped roof and skylight.

Howard Walsh Fine Arts Center.The production has required complete collaboration between the school’s music department, theater department, dance department and the visual arts department, said Clint Riley, the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts Executive Director.“This story is heavy because it’s about a man who has made mistakes in his life and he now has the opportunity to go back and try to correct them,” Riley said. “Our students have the skill to sing, act and dance in this heavy material but with these really beautiful and complex dance sequences.”Riley said the production requires a very high skill level to successfully perform.“Whether it’s singing, or acting, or dancing—we are very fortunate to have students that are all very good at what they do,” he said.Students worked on the scenery, made the costumes, and even choreographed their own dances, said Riley.“This musical is not just about the talent on stage, but the talent behind the scenes,” Riley said.There were multiple reasons why the school chose to perform “Carousel” this year, said Riley.“We look at our student population—we look at the number of students that are looking to fill the female and male roles and their capabilities,” he said.Riley said the school chose the musical for educational reasons as well.“This musical is one of the best musicals of the 20th century,” Riley said. “We wanted to pull from a classical piece and this is a very hard piece to perform so our students are learning and excelling at it.”The musical follows a 19th century romance between a charming carousel barker, Billy Bigelow, and a pretty innocent millworker, Julie Jordan. The attractive young couple quickly marries but they soon find themselves unemployed and in need of money which strains their relationship. Billy then discovers Julie is pregnant and resorts to extreme measures for money which lead to tragedy.Riley said the cast is a mix of students from different grade and skill levels.“Some of our cast members have been with us since third grade, while others are only in their first years of performing in musicals,” he said. “I would say we have a pretty diverse group.”Billy Bigelow will be played by junior Caleb Wilson while Julie Jordan, Bigelow’s wife, will be played by junior Jayden Goldberg.“While Caleb has a background in theater, Jayden has a background in opera training,” Riley said. “She has traveled all over from D.C. to Italy—this is what she wants to do career-wise.”Louise Bigelow, the daughter of Bigelow and Jordan, will be performed by Bailey Poe.“Bailey has a background in musical theater and actually spent her summer in New York City with a musical theater training program,” said Riley.Riley said “Carousel” is the excellent opportunity for all the leading actors to display their talents.“This is a strong classical piece with serious vocal training within the musical theater genre so it is the perfect fit for our leading actors,” Riley said.The website for tickets is show dates and times are:Friday, October 28 at 7 p.m.Saturday, October 29 at 7 p.m.Sunday, October 30 at 3 p.m.Thursday, November 3 at 7 p.m.Friday, November 4 at 7 p.m.Saturday, November 5 at 7 p.m.Tickets prices:Advance: $15 adults | $6 studentsAt the Door: $18 adults | $8 students Morgan Heinrich + posts Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature TCU Tailgates in The 109last_img read more

India: Two Kashmiri newspapers deprived of state ads in bid to apply pressure

first_img RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 “Targeting two newspapers in this completely arbitrary manner clearly constitutes an act of crude intimidation,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The authorities have no right to harass the publications they dislike with the aim of imposing their own version of the facts. Amid a surge in tension in the Kashmir valley, it absolutely vital that newspapers should be able to cover the situation in a completely independent manner, especially as press freedom is an essential condition for defusing tension.” IndiaAsia – Pacific Media independenceProtecting sources Armed conflictsEconomic pressure A Kashmiri citizen reads a newspaper in Srinagar on 28 February, a day after Indian and Pakistani warplanes clashed. The free flow of independent information must be maintained if tension is to be defused in Kashmir (Photo: Tauseef Mustafa / AFP). The Jammu and Kashmir government took the decision two days after 46 Indian paramilitaries were killed in Pulwama, in western Kashmir, on 14 February by a suicide bomber who was a member of an Islamist militant group based across the border in Pakistan. News India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Kashmir Reader owner and editor Haji Hayat Mohammad Bhat told RSF that the loss of advertising revenue would have “immense financial implications” for the two newspapers. “We would at the very least expect the government to tell us why they stopped the advertisements.” News “Immense financial implications” News The plight of Kashmir’s journalists is one of the many reasons why India is ranked no better than 138th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Organisation Accredited Kashmiri reporters were arbitrarily prevented from covering an official event in Srinagar, the state capital, on 26 January to mark Republic Day of India, one of India’s three national holidays. Four journalists were injured when police deliberately fired shotgun pellets at reporters a week before that. Shujaat Bukhari, the editor of the leading regional newspaper Rising Kashmir, was gunned down in Srinagar in June 2018. April 27, 2021 Find out more The decision was clearly “intended to ensure that the free media are curbed,” Greater Kashmir publisher Rashid Makhdoomi told RSF. “All we have been told is that the stoppage orders have come from the top. We need to be told who at the top has stopped the advertisements.” There are many examples of how press freedom has been one of the leading collateral victims of the growing tension in the Kashmir Valley for the past two years. The journalist Aasif Sultan has been detained since 24 August because of an article he wrote for the Kashmir Narrator monthly, while the hearings in his case, including one on 15 February, keep on being postponed. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a decision by the authorities in Indian-held Kashmir to endanger the financial viability of the region’s two leading English-language newspapers by depriving them of all state advertising. The government must restore state ads and treat all Kashmiri publications equally, RSF said.

No official explanation has been given for the decision although, as the Kashmiri private sector is very weak, the media depend almost totally on public sector ads. This latest decision by the Jammu and Kashmir government alluded to an October 2017 directive from the Union ministry of home affairs. The Hindustan Times, which has obtained a copy of the directive, said it named a number of Kashmiri media outlets, accused them of publishing content “glamourizing terrorists and anti-national elements” and recommended depriving them of state advertising.
