FTSE bounces in New Year rally

first_img Tags: NULL KCS-content POSITIVE economic news from across the globe saw a sharp rise in London stocks, with the FTSE jumping above the psychologically-important 6,000 barrier.It finished the day up almost two per cent at 6,013.87 – its highest close since the start of June 2008.And US markets also reacted positively after being reassured by the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s December meeting, which showed cautious optimism for the economic outlook. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 0.18 per cent higher at 11,691.18 after the announcement.“With the recent data on production and spending stronger, on balance, than anticipated, the staff revised up its projected increase in real GDP in the near term,” the minutes said.“Conditions in the labour market appeared to be improving on balance,” the Fed also recognised.However, the Fed still views progress towards its goals of maximum employment and price stability as “disappointingly slow” and shows no signs of reversing its programme of quantitative easing (QE2).“While the economic outlook was seen as improving, members generally felt that the change in the outlook was not sufficient to warrant any adjustments to the asset-purchase programme,” the minutes said Several members said they had a “fairly high threshold for making changes to the programme.”In the UK, exceptionally strong manufacturing data spurred market sentiment earlier in the day. Economists were predicting a decline in December’s factory activity, but it soared to a 16-year high.“The manufacturing sector ended 2010 in really good shape and made a healthy contribution to fourth quarter GDP growth,” said Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight, commenting on the purchasing managers’ index (PMI) results. Economists had expected the winter’s blizzards to hamper the resurgent UK manufacturing sector.Even the British housing market received some rare good news, as mortgage approvals unexpectedly increased in November to over 48,000, the Bank of England said. The stockmarket boost came after similar rises on Monday in the US, Europe and Asia, when London was closed for the Bank Holiday.Meanwhile, US data yesterday showed that American factory orders rose in November, surprising economists who had expected stagnation or even a fall in US manufacturing.US auto sales were also up in December, reaching their highest level for 16 months – far outperforming Wall Street expectations and indicating a strong recovery in the coming year. Vehicle sales exceeded 13m in the 12 months to December, closing a year in which car sales rose by 11 per cent — a strong turnaround for the formerly beleaguered industry. The stream of positive economic reports came ahead of the publication of the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) December meeting.

Sexton, Farrell and more slam proposed World Rugby international competition as being ‘out of touch’

first_imgThursday Feb 28, 2019 Sexton, Farrell and more slam proposed World Rugby international competition as being ‘out of touch’ The world’s top players have warned of serious “player welfare and integrity concerns” around World Rugby’s proposed competition structure for the global game. While senior players have consistently voiced their support for the concept, ongoing concerns exist around the detail of the competition format that has been taken to market in recent months.ADVERTISEMENTFORMAT:As explained by the NZ Herald, the proposed format will require all 12 nations to play each other once in the calendar year, with a semi-final and final to be played at the end of each year.The 12 nations will be the current Six Nations and the current Rugby Championship sides plus Japan and USA, who are likely going to join the Rugby Championship.Without promotion or relegation in place, it means that all teams outside of those 12, namely the Pacific Island teams, will be without a major competition for at least the next 10 years.The Six Nations will travel south to each play three tests. These will be randomly allocated so England, for example, could find themselves playing Japan, Australia and New Zealand while Wales could be off to Argentina then South Africa and New Zealand. The Rugby Championship will then kick off in August and will be a straight round-robin.The World League will then be completed by the southern sides travelling north in November to play the three teams they didn’t play in July. The top four teams on the table will then play a semi-final and final in the Northern Hemisphere.The proposal suggests that the playoffs could take place in major grounds such as the Nou Camp in Barcelona or Soldier Fields in Chicago.ADVERTISEMENTUNHAPPY:The International Rugby Players Council of almost 40 players spoke via conference call on Tuesday night to discuss the potential 12-year deal, with nine of the world’s top ten international team captains dialing in.Senior players from around the globe were united in their concern about the proposed format, in relation to:Player load challenges from multiple top-level test matches in different countries and time-zones in consecutive weeksIncreased long-haul travel in short time framesA lack of real opportunities for Tier Two nations to progressIncreased conflicts between country and club demands and Regulation 9 release periodsPotential impact on Rugby World Cup and Lions toursThe long-term quality and integrity of the international gameIt’s believed that World Rugby bosses are seeking to ratify the deal in the coming weeks, which has raised concerns among the Player Council.International Rugby Players President Jonathan Sexton said: “While players gave this idea a cautious welcome when we met at the end of last year, it now seems like a commercial deal on the future of the game is being negotiated at a rapid pace with little consideration given to the important points we raised with World Rugby in November [pictured above and below].“The issue of player load has never been so topical, however it needs to be properly understood. To suggest that players can play five incredibly high-level test matches in consecutive weeks in November is out of touch and shows little understanding of the physical strain this brings”ADVERTISEMENTPlayer Council member Kieran Read said: “After listening to the issues raised by many of the players, we need to be very careful that we balance the commercial needs of the game, with the player welfare needs and ensure the quality and integrity of matches meets expectations.“Fans want to see meaningful games; they don’t want to see fatigued players playing a reduced quality of rugby as part of a money-driven, weakened competition that doesn’t work for the players or clubs.“With new technologies, new broadcast deals and new money coming into the sport, this is a crucial moment for rugby and one that many players are generally excited about. However, we have to make sure that the integrity of the game and welfare of the players is protected.”England captain Owen Farrell added: “Players are definitely open to discussing a new global season, but what we develop has to work with the club game in order to reduce conflict, deal with player release issues and make sure their welfare is looked after. The proposal presented to us at the moment doesn’t seem to have considered this properly and shows no signs of improving this already difficult situation.”Tier Two and emerging nations will likely be prevented from accessing top level competitive matches, thus creating a ceiling on their aspirations to advance and improve.Samoa captain Chris Vui said: “For countries in this bracket and for Pacific Islanders in particular, our biggest issue has always been the ‘club versus country’ factor. We feel that that a 12-year deal is not workable, particularly when it presents no hope of advancement during that period.“This will have the dangerous knock-on effect of luring senior players away from their countries and more towards the clubs, which is the exact opposite of what we’re all trying to achieve”.International Rugby Players CEO Omar Hassanein confirmed that these views have been conveyed to World Rugby on several occasions.“World Rugby are failing to respect the players views and genuinely engage on the issues. It will be interesting to see their approach in the coming weeks knowing the current proposal does not have the players support”. photos credit: @INPHO Photography Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Current locations include 25/27 College Green, Waitrose on Queens Road and the café/bar at Bambalan at Colston Tower.In addition, TAP points are being installed in business premises to allow employees and visitors to ‘TAP for Bristol’. The first to go live will be at Lloyds Banking Group’s headquarters at the Lloyds Amphitheatre and the Spectrum building on Bond Street.All money donated through TAP for Bristol is being managed, monitored and evaluated by Quartet Community Foundation. Donations will be divided equally between Quartet and Caring in Bristol.Caring in Bristol will use the funds to deliver new homeless prevention and early intervention support services to people who are vulnerable to homelessness. This will include a new group of trained volunteers working in partnership with local debt and housing advice agencies to give additional, timely support to those at risk of becoming street homeless.Local charities, organisations and community groups will be invited to apply to Quartet Community Foundation on behalf of named individuals to support them into a safer and more stable life away from the streets.A single ‘TAP for Bristol’ donates £3 and supports someone attending a job interview. Two TAPS help fund a one to one session with a support worker for a young person facing homelessness and three TAPS can fund a prevention worker navigating someone away from crisis, or fund an emergency deposit for a room.The Bristol City Centre BID team is actively looking to install further TAP for Bristol donation points in prominent places with high footfall and are asking businesses and organisations to get in touch if they are interested in hosting one, including owners of vacant properties. TAP for Bristol donation points will be installed free of charge within the BID area.More units are expected to be added across the city centre over the following weeks, with one on Park Street shortly being installed in premises owned by Bristol developer Urban Creation.Keith Rundle, Operations Director at Bristol City Centre BID said:“TAP for Bristol is a new, quick and easy way to help people experiencing homelessness on the street, or who are at risk of becoming homeless. It’s unique in the UK as the only contactless donation system to support homelessness prevention work, as well as funding direct support to individuals.“The scheme will supplement the wealth of great work already happening in Bristol to tackle homelessness, which is a major concern to our members.”Ben Richardson, Director of Caring in Bristol, added: Advertisementlast_img read more

Senate Won’t Take Up TPP This Year

first_img Senate Won’t Take Up TPP This Year Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Won’t Take Up TPP This Year Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky appeared to shut the door on the Senate taking up the Trans-Pacific Partnership Bill this year. McConnell said the current agreement has some serious flaws and will not be acted upon this year. He did say, while the agreement won’t pass in its current form, it could pass as early as next year with some changes when the new administration takes over. However, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump and Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton both have come out against the deal. President Obama has pledged to push for the trade deal during his remaining time in office. He even went so far as to send a draft agreement to Congress, but it seems to have lost momentum on Capitol Hill. McConnell had already said the agreement wouldn’t get a vote, and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the bill doesn’t have enough votes to pass the House.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Previous articleEating Meat Makes You HumanNext articleFixing Holes in the Safety Net Hoosier Ag Today By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 28, 2016 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Ali Lmrabet files suit in France for slander against Moroccan minister of communications

first_img to go further April 15, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Help by sharing this information News Jailed Moroccan journalist and editor Ali Lmrabet has filed a suit for slander against the country’s communications minister, Nabil Benabdallah, for calling him a liar at an 18 June press conference in Paris. The suit was presented to a Paris court on 16 September by his lawyer, Jean Martin. Jailed Moroccan journalist and editor Ali Lmrabet has filed a suit for slander against the country’s communications minister, Nabil Benabdallah, for calling him a liar at an 18 June press conference in Paris. The suit was presented to a Paris court on 16 September by his lawyer, Jean Martin. Lmrabet, owner and editor of Demain magazine and Douman as well as being the Reporters Without Borders correspondent in Morocco, was sentenced on appeal on 17 June to three years in prison for “insulting the person of the king”, “undermining territorial integrity” and “attacking the institution of the monarchy.” He has dual French and Moroccan nationality.He had printed a series of satirical articles and cartoons in the two magazines, which have both been banned. After a 50-day hunger strike in protest at being detained, he was sent back on 11 August to Salé Prison from Rabat’s Avicenne Hospital, where he had been treated. The minister had said Lmrabet put out “disinformation, lies and insults … Each issue of his magazines was filled with such things and I can give you hundreds of examples… He has never behaved as a journalist.” He added that Lmrabet “was not quite right in the head” and had a medical history. Lmrabet’s lawyer said the remarks were “clearly defamatory” and “harm the reputation of a man who has spent his life informing the public at his own risk and is now in prison for doing so.” Reporters Without Borders appealed in vain to King Mohammed VI on 29 July to pardon him on the Fête du Trône the following day. It said that “an offence of ‘bearing ill will’ cannot and should not be punished with imprisonment. This is the rule in all democracies and should be the rule in Morocco too. It affects the reputation of both your kingdom and yourself. “Lmrabet is a journalist, who pokes fun and mocks things, but he is just a journalist. A writer must not be jailed for simply offending the monarch. Lmrabet’s jail sentence is a bad omen at a time when Moroccans should be united in the face of terrorism. You are the only person who can correct this error and repair this injustice.” ______________________Over 13 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. One hundred and twenty news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations sothat their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Ali Lmrabet is sponsored by AVUI, Bakeas, Cadena SER, Cambio 16/Espacio de Informacion General (EIG), CNN+ – Onda Cero, Comunica e Inter Press Service, Diario Directo, El Mundo, El Pais, El periodico de catalunya, Espana-Hoy, France soir, Fun Radio, La Razon, La Vanguardia (Q), Radio Babel FM, Tiempo, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Vandellós i Associats.

Local magazine editor’s bullet-riddled body found in Sinaloa state

first_img News MexicoAmericas to go further The bullet-riddled and half-buried body of local magazine editor Antonio Gamboa Urias was found yesterday in Ahome, in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, 13 days after he was reported missing.Sinaloa prosecutor Marco Antonio Higuera said Gamboa was murdered after being abducted as he left a bar because of an argument that had taken place in the bar. Six people took part in the murder of Gamboa, whose body was found thanks to information provided by two detained suspects, Higuera said.The account provided by the prosecutor seems to rule out any connection between Gamboa’s work and the murder.Gamboa had for the past several years been the editor of the Ahome-based Nueva Prensa, a magazine that covers local corruption and crime. He had also participated actively in protests by Sinaloa journalists against a proposed “Ley Mordaza” (gag law) that would have restricted crime coverage in the state. Sinaloa’s parliament rejected it on 21 August.The FEADLE (federal prosecutor’s office for crimes against freedom of expression) has tried to contact the Sinaloa state prosecutor about the case but he did not respond to their enquiries and did not receive the FEADLE officials who were sent to conduct an investigation. As a result, the FEADLE has not been given access to any of the information in the state prosecutor’s case file and has not been able to interrogate the detained suspects.“We welcome the progress in this case and the arrest of suspects, but we urge the state authorities to take account of the victim’s work as a journalist, and to not obstruct the investigation being conducted by the federal prosecutor’s office for crimes against freedom of expression,” Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles said.Gamboa is the seventh media worker to be murdered in Mexico since the start of the year, one in which Reporters Without Borders has been shocked by the kinds of violence inflicted on journalists, including one physically attacked in his own office, another shot dead in mid-radio broadcast, shots fired at the homes of at least two journalists and one woman netizen brutally murdered.
