It’s been a tough Christmas trading period for our top listed supermarkets, struggling under a wave of general retail malaise plus the onslaught from Lidl and Aldi.Market reactions to the latest updates from Sainsbury’s and Morrisons were somewhat subdued, with both seeing their share prices slip back a little on Wednesday when their updates were released.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…But the response to a festive season update from Tesco (LSE: TSCO) Thursday was met with a bit more optimism, with the shares gaining a few pence. On the face of it, though, it’s hard to see a reason for much excitement.GrowthChief executive Dave Lewis said: “In a subdued UK market we performed well, delivering our fifth consecutive Christmas of growth,” adding that “this Christmas we had the biggest ever day of UK food sales in our history.“But looking at the figures, total UK and Republic of Ireland sales in the Christmas trading period rose by only 0.2%, and by 0.4% on a like-for-like basis. Tesco branded sales in the UK itself (excluding Booker) were flat in total, with like-for-like sales up by just 0.1%.In international markets, the story was one of falling sales, with the third quarter plus the Christmas period adding up to a 1.5% fall (0.9% like-for-like).While figures like these might not exactly have me rushing for the ‘buy’ button, I do think some cautious optimism is called for. In perhaps the toughest Christmas for the retail trade for a decade, plus the most chaotic Brexit year we’ve had so far, coming back with what is essentially a flat set of figures seems very much acceptable.Tesco best?Were I considering an investment in a supermarket business, I think Tesco is the one I’d go for. And on that front, I pretty much agree with all the reasons my Fool colleague Roland Head has suggested for preferring the UK’s biggest supermarket chain over Sainsbury’s.And if I wouldn’t buy the second biggest in Sainsbury’s, I certainly wouldn’t buy Morrisons, which down in fourth place behind Asda and now on an equal footing with Aldi.But would I really buy Tesco? Hmmm.Earnings growth since Tesco hit bottom have been good, and a 23% EPS rise on the cards for the year to February 2020 even puts the shares on a PEG ratio of 0.6. That compares the P/E ratio to expected EPS growth, and a value of 0.7 or less is typically seen as a very attractive figure by growth investors.SlowingBut that has to be tempered by the fact that this is recovery-led growth, which should end when the company gets back to a steady state. As it happens, the EPS growth forecast for the next two years slips back to 8% followed by 7% — still healthy, but certainly levelling off.There’s the attraction of the dividends, with a 3.2% yield suggested for the current year, and that’s excellent progress since the annual payment was reinstated in 2018.But, in such a competitive business, I’d only invest in the one with the very best prospects. And today, that’s either Lidl or Aldi, neither of which I can buy. I think it’s a mistake to act as if they’re not there and buy only the best of what’s available, so I’d buy none in this sector. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Tagged with: Finance Individual giving Ireland Research / statistics Howard Lake | 1 December 2010 | News Development charity Concern Worldwide’s income in 2009 was down nearly €3 million on the previous year, according to its annual report. Total income for 2009 was €129,421,000 and €132,298,000 in 2008. Income would have been lower by €8.8 million in 2009 but for the disposal of a subsidiary organisation.One of the biggest falls in income was in the area of voluntary fundraising which dropped from €53.6 million to €44.8 million. The value of donated goods increased but grants from government and trading activities both declined.Within the voluntary income category, committed income held up at €23 million but legacy income declined from €4.5 million to €2.7 million, while corporates, major donors and trusts fell from €7.6 million to €4.2 million. Public appeals also fell to €14.3 million from €16.7 million.Concern receives significant income from foreign governments and international organisations such as the UN and this source increased to €14.7 million from €11.2 million. Funding from the Irish government, however, fell from €26 million in 2008 to €20.8 million in 2009.The charity reduced the cost of generating its income from €12.3 million to €11 million.The above figures are derived from the consolidated accounts of Concern in Ireland and the UK. Income within the UK actually increased from €13.2 million to €14.5 million, due largely to increased government funding.www.concern.net 17 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Concern income down by €3 million About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home EthiopiaAfrica Photo of Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson. Help by sharing this information Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye, the two Swedish journalists who were convicted by an Addis Ababa court on 21 December on charges of entering the country illegally and supporting terrorism, were sentenced today to 11 years in prison. “This sentence should satisfy the goal of peace and stability,” Judge Shemsu Sirgaga said. Defence lawyer Abebe Balcha said he could not accept the sentence and would consult with his clients about the possibility of an appeal.“What are the Ethiopian authorities hoping to achieve?” the Reporters Without Borders international secretariat asked. “To discourage anyone from visiting the Ogaden, as these two journalists did. To send a warning signal to the national and international media about the danger of receiving a long jail sentence on a terrorism charge if they attempt any potentially embarrassing investigative reporting.”Jesper Bengtsson, the president of Reporters Without Borders’ Swedish section, added: “We regard this sentence as deplorable even if it did not surprise us after last week’s decision by the court to find them guilty.”A Reporters Without Borders delegation consisting of secretary-general Jean-François Julliard and the head of the Africa desk, Ambroise Pierre, met with the Ethiopian ambassador in Paris, Teshome Toga, on 22 December, the day after the two journalists were convicted. They voiced their disapproval of the way the Ethiopian judicial system was handling the case and warned of the danger of serious diplomatic repercussions if Persson and Schibbye were given long jail sentences.“Every meeting between Ethiopian officials and their European or western counterparts will henceforth be affected by this case,” Julliard warned. “You will hear references to Johan and Martin every day. You will be criticized every day. There will be a big campaign on their behalf.”More information about Persson and Schibbye here. Organisation December 27, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two Swedish journalists sentenced to 11 years in prison 21.12.11 – In disgraceful verdict, court convicts Swedish journalists of supporting terrorismReporters Without Borders is outraged that an Addis Ababa court today found Swedish journalists Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye guilty of supporting terrorism, a charge for which the prosecution has requested a 13-year jail sentence. They are also facing an additional sentence of five and a half years in prison on a charge of entering the country illegally, to which they pleaded guilty. The court is expected to issue a sentence next week.The presiding judge, Shemsu Sirgaga, said: “They have shown that they are esteemed journalists, but we cannot conclude that someone with a good reputation does not engage in criminal acts. They have not been able to prove that they did not support terrorism.”“This verdict is absurd and demonstrates the stubbornness of the Ethiopian authorities,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Instead of proving their guilt, the judge accuses them of failing to prove their innocence. This is back-to-front. Since the first day of the trial, the defence position has been very clear: Persson and Schibbye entered the Ogaden illegally for the purposes of reporting, but they never supported terrorism.”Jesper Bengtsson, the president of the Swedish section of Reporters Without Borders, said: “The Swedish government must step up its efforts on behalf of Johan and Martin. The quiet diplomacy that foreign minister Carl Bildt has been relying on until now has not worked. Bildt must demand their immediate release.”Reporters Without Borders wrote yesterday to the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, Ben Emersson, to condemn the misuse of counter-terrorism in Ethiopia and to urge him to meet with representatives of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi’s government to convince them to stop using counter-terrorism as grounds for suppressing freedom of expression. More information here. Reporters Without Borders also joined three other NGOs and the “Free Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye” campaign in issuing a combined appeal yesterday to the European Union to be more active and determined in defending media freedom in Ethiopia. Persson, a photographer, and Schibbye, a reporter, were arrested on 1 July after entering Ethiopia’s southeastern Ogaden region from Somalia with members of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), an armed separatist group, with the aim of covering human rights abuses in the region for the Kontinent news agency. Shortly before their arrest, they were injured in a clash between government forces and the ONLF in which 15 ONLF members were killed.When they appeared in court for the first time on 6 September, two months after their arrest, they were charged with “terrorist activities (…) supporting terrorists and providing them with professional aid (and) “entering a sovereign country without a valid visa or legal authorization,” government spokesman Shimeles Kemal told Bloomberg.During the 6 September hearing, the prosecutor screened a propaganda video in support of the charges. The video, which showed the two journalists holding guns, had been posted on the pro-government Caakara News website a few days after their arrest. The defence strongly objected to the fact that sounds of shooting had been added to the soundtrack.After the trial opened on 18 October, the charge of “participating in terrorism” was dropped on 3 November but the other two charges, supporting a terrorist group and entering the country illegally, were maintained.

Louisiana State Fire Marshal/iStock(NEW YORK) — The suspect who was arrested in connection to three fires at black churches in Louisiana had ties to “black metal” music, investigators said Thursday.Authorities apprehended Holden Matthews, 21, in St. Landry Parrish after they identified him as the suspect in allegedly setting the fires over a span of 10 days.“We saw an immediate threat of public safety. We felt that other crimes were imminent,” Louisiana State Fire Marshal “Butch” Browning.Matthews is being held in St. Landry Parrish jail on three counts of simple arson of a religious building.Browning said that “we’re still vetting several motives,” but added that they have found that Matthews had ties to “black metal and its association and history with church burnings in other parts of the world.”Black metal, a distant genre of devil-worshipping death metal music, has roots in the Norwegian heavy metal scene that reportedly was the inspiration for several church burnings in the country in the early 1990s.Gov. John Bel Edwards said that while there were four fires in Louisiana in a 10-day span, only three were in St. Landry Parrish; the other fire was more than 220 miles away and was not connected, authorities said.“I don’t know what this young man’s motive was … it cannot be justified or rationalized. These are evil acts,” Edwards said.Investigators found a gas can at the scene of one of the fires, according to the affidavit in the case. They traced it back to a local Walmart and linked it to Matthews’ credit card, according to the affidivat.Surveillance of Matthews at the Walmart and cell phone tower data placing him at the churches when the fires were set was also part of the evidence, the affidivat states.The blaze at the St. Mary Baptist Church was reported on March 26, followed by Greater Union Baptist Church on April 2, and then Mount Pleasant Baptist Church last Thursday. Officials have not determined the exact cause of the fires.Sheriff Bobby Guidroz of St. Landry Parrish said that while Matthews’ father works as a deputy in his department, he did not, as has been reported by some media, turn his son in or identify him.“Holden Matthews’ father did not turn him in. We did not get any tips from the hotline. We got a lot of tips from the public and we investigated many tips and leads,” Guidoz said at a news conference Thursday.Guidoz said that Roy Matthews, the suspect’s father, is “shocked and hurt, as any father would be.”“He knew nothing about his son’s activity,” Guidoz said. “He was in terrible shape.”Prior to the announcement of Matthews’ arrest, one local elected official said the fires appeared intentional and the NAACP categorized them as “domestic terrorism.”“For decades, African-American churches have served as the epicenter of survival and a symbol of hope for many in the African-American community,” NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson said. “As a consequence, these houses of faith have historically been the targets of violence.”Johnson noted that the fires had occurred within the same time span of another suspicious blaze in Tennessee, where a social justice training center was burned and tagged with anti-Semitic slurs.“What is happening in Tennessee and Louisiana is domestic terrorism and we must not turn a blind eye to any incident where people are targeted because of the color of their skin and their faith,” Johnson said. “The spike in church burnings in the Southern states is a reflection of emboldened racial rhetoric and tension spreading across the country.”Edwards made a similar point during Thursday’s news conference, saying that people are “deeply troubled by the disturbing string of church fires.”“It reminds us of a very dark past of intimidation and fear,” Edwards said.“Hate is not a Louisiana value and violence has no place in our communities,” he said, adding that it was a “reflection of one depraved individual.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Social circumstances throughout life, from birth to late adulthood,influence people’s healthMen in professional occupations tend to suffer the same rates of deathwherever they live in England, while rates for unskilled working men aregenerally worse in the north than the south, Chief Medical Officer for EnglandProfessor Liam Donaldson has said. In his first annual report on the state of public health in England,Professor Donaldson argued that being poor in the north was worse for yourhealth than being poor in the south – but that those in professionaloccupations were generally able to transcend this trend. Access to better educational and employment opportunities and living in abetter quality environment were all associated with better health, he said. Other findings included the fact that some parts of the country,particularly the North West and North East of England, had death rates whichwere largely unchanged from the national average in the 1950s. “Social circumstances throughout life – from birth to late adulthood –influence people’s health. In particular social, economic and environmentaldeprivation have a profound and overriding impact on health. Lifestyle factorssuch as smoking, diet, and physical activity are also important,” saidProfessor Donaldson. “Targeting the poorest sections of the population is important toimprove their health, but this alone will not close the inequalities gap; manymore people at risk of poor health are in manual social classes. Achievingimprovements in their health will make a large contribution to reducinginequalities overall.” More work needed to be done on improving the health of ‘blue-collar’workers, he added. The report also examined the effects of smoking, epilepsy, high bloodpressure, coronary heart disease and e-coli on the population. www.doh.gov.uk/cmo/annualreport2001 Previous Article Next Article Health is a social class issueOn 1 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.
