Tesco shares drop on poor Xmas figures

first_imgThursday 13 January 2011 8:11 pm Share KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL TESCO shares took a hit yesterday as it announced disappointing Christmas sales figures. Like-for-like sales in the UK missed forecasts, rising just 0.6 per cent in the six weeks to 8 January.The company blamed the poor weather on the performance with its larger stores worst hit. Tesco shares were one of the poorest performers on the FTSE 100, closing down 4.3 per cent at 405.6p.In Sir Terry Leahy’s last sales statement as chief executive before he retires in March, Tesco’s figures suggested that although it is still by far the biggest supermarket, it is losing some market share to Sainsbury’s.On non-food, Tesco said that the weather had disrupted sales and so sales were “subdued”. Like-for-like sales in this area fell by around 1.5 per cent and, unlike Sainsbury’s, the retailer failed to attract “one stop shoppers” who used superstores to buy their presents as well as food so they only had to venture out once in the severe conditions. Finance director Laurie McIlwee said of the impact of the weather: “We call it the way we see it, and in the busiest shopping week of the year, the country came to a standstill.”New chief executive Philip Clarke takes charge in March and will be under pressure to stunt the progress of Sainsbury’s which yesterday reported its best ever Christmas sales figures. It also made much of the way it had dealt with the poor weather by making its store more accessible than other retailers with mass gritting of car parks. •Fashion chain New Look said the snow had cost it a £15m hole in its Christmas trade as it reported a sales dive of 9.1 per cent in its third-quarter. However, the firm said it held its market share at 5.8 per cent.

Racing 92 vs Munster Semi-Final Preview

first_imgIn the second Champions Cup semi-final French side Racing 92 go up against Munster in Bordeaux. Racing are a talented side with players like Nakarawa, Yannick Nyanga and Maxime Machenaud running the side, however who will be playing at ten will be a key storyline going into the game. Surely with someone like Carter in your side, you have to start him, but time will tell who the Racing coaches go for.MunsterMunster on the other hand looked rock solid during the group stages with the only blemish being the loss to Racing in the round five. They came back in the next round though with a 48-3 thumping of Castres to top the group.Their quarter-final opponent was Toulon who dominated the contest in the early stages taking a 6-0 lead after a penalty and drop goal by Anthony Belleau.But then Conor Murray got the Irish back in the match scoring an improbable try on the Toulon line – after  Guilhem Guirardo knocked on at the bese of the ruck, the scrum-half darted around, picked the ball up and dotted down.Eventually Toulon managed to get themselves a 19-13 lead but an incredible, never-give-up Andrew Conway try , which was converted, gave Munster the 20-19 victory.The experience of players like Murray, Peter O’Mahoney and CJ Stander had a key role to play here, and they will again be pivotal against Racing. All three are big name players and will surely play well this weekend but the question is whether the rest of the side can step up.Andrew Conway scores the winning try against Toulon (Getty Images)ResultMunster are very good, but we think Racing will shock them and emerge victorious, 23-19. Racing 92 vs Munster Semi-Final PreviewThe second semi-final is a familiar affair with Racing 92 and Munster meeting for the third time in the competition.During the group stages they played twice and won one each. Munster won the first contest 14-7, and Racing won 34-30 in the return leg.If those results are anything to go by, then we are in for another tight one on Sunday at 16.15 on BT Sport.Racing 92 The only side to win on their travels during the quarter-finals, Racing have had a rollercoaster of a tournament to get this far.During the group stages, losses to Munster and Castres threatened to boot them out of the competition shockingly early. But they came back to win three in a row to get a runners-up spot in the group.This meant they had to travel to Group 2 winners Clermont. Tries by Leone Nakarawa, Man of the Match Marc Andreu and Boris Palu helped Racing come out 28-17 winners in a contest where substitutions changed the outcome of the game.Palu was one of them, Dan Carter was the other. Pat Lambie had started the game at ten for Racing, however Carter showed his class by setting up Andreu for the try that put his side ahead. They were able to stay there and Carter later tweeted how much of a test Clermont were after the match. Dan Carter helped Racing win against Clermont, but will he start against Munster?

The Chiefs beat the Crusaders to reach the Super Rugby final

first_imgWednesday Aug 1, 2012 The Chiefs beat the Crusaders to reach the Super Rugby final The Chiefs face the Sharks in the Super Rugby Final this coming Saturday after their much deserved 20-17 victory over the champion Crusaders on the weekend. They were last in the final in 2009, but suffered a heavy loss to the Bulls on that occasion. The Chiefs are aiming to join the exclusive club of the Crusaders and the Blues as they look to become the third New Zealand side to win a Super Rugby title.“Making the final certainly was our goal, and I don’t think everyone agreed back in November, but belief grows with performance, and knocking over the Crusaders and Blues early in the piece probably helped that,” said a pleased coach Dave Rennie.They faced a South African side in their only previous final, in 2009, but on that day they were thumped 61-17 by the Bulls, the heaviest loss by any team in a Super Rugby final. Brumbies coach Jake White believes that the travelling Sharks have a major uphill battle.“I think that it’s going to be a hell of a tough ask for the Sharks to go back and forth and back and forth (between South Africa and Australasia) and get away with wins consecutively,” said White.“It would be an amazing achievement for a team that finished sixth to actually end up winning it, and beating teams that came first and second.“They would end up beating the Reds, who won that conference, the Stormers, who won their conference, and then the Chiefs, who won their conference.“It would be a massive effort for the Sharks. It would be phenomenal if they could. But I think, obviously, the Chiefs must be favourites,” he added.Below are highlights of the Chiefs vs Crusaders semi final if you missed itADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

NSPCC asks people to fundraise through play events with launch of Childhood Day

first_img“Throughout this pandemic, children and young people have had to deal with so many difficult new challenges, many knowing that their families were struggling with health worries and financial issues, some locked down in unsafe homes, deprived of their schools which may have been their only refuge. Many have told Childline that they have struggled to cope and their mental health has suffered as a result. Tagged with: Events fundraising events “Young people have experienced so many different challenges to their mental health this year. Lots will have played less because they’ve been stuck at home, but as restrictions ease and opportunities for play increase it’s important we recognise its benefits. NSPCC asks people to fundraise through play events with launch of Childhood Day AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The charity has also launched a film that encourages people to play their part for children by signing up, downloading a fundraising pack and organising a play event to fundraise for the NSPCC. Dame Esther Rantzen, founder of Childline, said:  “Play can help children work through difficult emotions, encounter new experiences and build resilience, confidence and self-esteem. In light of this, I’m backing the NSPCC’s Childhood Day and encouraging families up and down the country to get playing on the 11 June.” Since April last year, NSPCC has revealed that Childline has carried out 73,088 counselling sessions about mental or emotional health. 5,646 of these counselling sessions were with children aged 11 or under, an increase of nearly a third (29%) when compared to the year before.  616 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “Childline’s counsellors have been tremendously impressed by the resilience of so many young people during the pandemic, supporting themselves and each other. Nevertheless, we are all only too aware that not only education has suffered, but so has the opportunity to play. My grandchildren have told me how much they have missed their friends during lockdown. Play is such an important part of childhood, building confidence and creating relationships. After the year we’ve had, I am really looking forward to joining my own family on Childhood Day. I do hope as many families as possible will be able to do the same, to enjoy each other’s company and have fun and play together.” Now, as lockdown continues to ease, the charity is encouraging people across the UK to get involved in Childhood Day, which takes place on 11 June. The event was previously piloted in specific areas, and has now launched with a refreshed look and feel. NSPCC supporter Dr Ranj Singh also commented, saying: Melanie May | 18 May 2021 | News The charity has also revealed that in 2020/21, the first full year of living under Coronavirus restrictions, it delivered 16,610 counselling sessions about abuse, with counselling sessions about emotional abuse increasing by 18% when compared to the year before.

Jackson, Miss., conference promotes people’s cooperatives

first_imgMiss. conference on cooperatives.Jackson, Miss. — Once home to some of the most violent racists in the U.S., Jackson, Miss., is now a key training ground for self-determination and organized “people power” throughout the U.S. South.From May 2 through May 4, activists, organizers and fellow revolutionaries from all over the world gathered at “The Jackson Rising: New Economies Conference” at Jackson State University. An estimated 500 people participated in some or all of the conference.The primary objective of the conference was “to educate and mobilize the people of Jackson to meet the economic and sustainability needs of their community,” and to share with others how such strategies can help produce the radical change oppressed communities will need to survive within the current global capitalist crisis. The spirit of resistance and self-reliance filled the air. The event was organized by the Jackson Rising Organizing Committee and was held at the Walter Payton Health and Recreation Center, where students and community members were welcomed alike.Poet Askia Toure and Lamont Lilly.WW photo: Dante StrobinoAs an opening, the Federation of Southern Cooperatives provided a warm welcome and an insightful introduction to the local cooperative movement, outlining how their efforts have been a form of resistance and an assistance in providing the people’s needs.The Southern Grassroots Economies Project gave an intense overview on why the cooperative movement has begun to blossom and take form throughout the Southern Black Belt and how public policy can actually support and finance such grassroots efforts.Regional activists and organizers learned firsthand how the SGEP has been working diligently since 2011 to “build a Southern economy rooted in self-reliance, solidarity, community ownership and meeting human needs rather than maximizing profit.”Black Workers for Justice and other union activists expressed the importance that strategies for workers’ rights coincide with burgeoning worker-owned cooperatives, and how in hindsight, such forces actually strengthen each other.The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation sponsored a community workshop presenting four case studies inspired by Argentina’s cooperative movement. Omar Sierra, deputy consul general of Venezuela in Boston, highlighted the redesigning of communal territories in Venezuela through participatory planning. Manuel Matos, representative of the Afro-Descendant Community Council of La Toma [Colombia], shared how Afro-Colombians are building ties for land autonomy and participatory governance. Mazibuko Jara, of Amandla! Magazine and the Alternative Information Center, introduced conference participants to how the cooperative movement is resisting the rise of neocolonialism in South Africa.Black Arts Movement poet and pioneer Askia Toure was in attendance, along with Black Left Unity Network representatives. The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement was also there accompanied by world renowned hip-hop emcee Brother Ali.Guest speaker Saladin Muhammad from Black Workers for Justice outlined how Black workers in the U.S. South are extremely underpaid and unprotected, and how their rights are completely ignored — in a region that claims the “right to work” — until there is broader union solidarity.A call for independent institutionsWhat was the main political orientation of this conference? As revolutionaries, we shouldn’t want to depend on capitalism to provide for our basic needs. How can we, if it’s failing us from every angle? Speakers and cultural artists emphasized that freedom fighters have to assist the people in building institutions of liberation and implementing practical strategies that promote autonomy from the capitalist system. Building cooperatives was stressed as an alternative to corporate grocery chains to supply oppressed communities with fresh fruits and vegetables, and to educate our children.The organizers stressed that the task at hand for now is working to construct the economic and social networks that serve the oppressed rather than cater to the elite. How do the people begin to provide themselves with adequate health care? How do low-income and marginalized communities create sustainable employment with living wages for themselves? How do underserved communities become their own solution to dilapidated housing, food deserts and waste management? How can communities affected by the school-to-prison pipeline combat such practices through participatory planning and self-reliance? The fact is that the capitalist system will not stop until we make it stop! While issuing demands and raising voices are necessary, the harsh reality is that the needs of the people have continued to be ignored.The oppressed need more than free newspapers, pamphlets and open access to community forums. In order to truly empower those who are marginalized, freedom fighters must be engaged in the work of providing basic survival needs that include food, clothing and shelter. True, mass marches and political protests are very much needed, but it will take another kind of mobilization to toil the soil and feed hungry children. It will take more than film screenings to help provide employment for those who have been incarcerated. It requires the collective application of practical skills, knowledge and community-based planning. Capitalism couldn’t care less about the needs of the oppressed. Hard work, creativity and revolutionary ingenuity can help lay groundwork for the oppressed to begin to meet their own needs, creating their own modes of child care and transportation, manufacturing and apparel.Within the capitalist structure, self-reliance among marginalized communities is a critical form of resistance. Limiting the power and impact capitalism and its corporatocracy possess over our everyday lives is one of the first steps to building a revolutionary movement. These points were some recurring themes amongst the organizers throughout the conference.The weekend session concluded with a rousing tribute to revolutionary and former mayor of Jackson, Miss., the late Chokwe Lumumba, as his son, Chokwe Antar Lumumba, chanted: “Free the Land! Free the land! Free the land by any means necessary!”The spirit and legacy of former Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, who won the mayoral campaign promoting cooperatives as part of building people’s assemblies, resonated throughout the entire conference. What the “Jackson Rising: New Economies Conference” informed and reminded the movement is that oppressed communities must liberate themselves. “Jackson Rising” was a reminder that most communities already possess the skills, labor and resources needed to improve the quality of life for all working people, and that we as revolutionaries must not only believe that; we must also lead the charge.Lamont Lilly is a contributing editor with the Triangle Free Press, human rights delegate with Witness for Peace and organizer with the Durham, N.C., branch of Workers World Party.

In late November and early December, infection rates in rural areas appeared to be slowing, while new cases in urban areas continued to grow.Rural COVID-19 deaths per 100 infections were 1.86 in the first two weeks of December, 48 percent higher than the corresponding urban rate of 1.26. USDA says the rural population appears to be more vulnerable to serious infection in several ways, including age and underlying medical conditions.The report says people may also be more vulnerable when they have difficulty accessing medical care, measured as lacking health insurance, or residing more than 32 miles from a county with an intensive care hospital.

The officials were expected to weigh in on the issue on Wednesday.If approved by the state and regional level, vaccination of 12- to 15-year-olds will likely begin in Pasadena as early as Friday, Derderian said.California’s immunization website at myturn.ca.gov was not accepting registrations for patients younger than 16 as of Monday afternoon.Roughly 1.5 million COVID-19 cases had been reported nationally in patients aged 11 to 17 as of April 30, according to the FDA statement. “Children and adolescents generally have a milder COVID-19 disease course as compared to adults.”Meanwhile, the Pasadena Department of Public Health reported two new COVID-19 infections and no additional deaths on Monday.The city had documented 11,258 confirmed infections, in total. The local death toll remained at 346 since the last fatalities were reported in Pasadena on April 30.An average of 2.7 COVID-19 cases were detected in Pasadena daily over the prior week, according to city data.With the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations slowing in Los Angeles County, the public health director said today it could take slightly longer than originally anticipated for the region to reach a point of so-called herd immunity than previously thought.Early in the vaccination effort, health officials had estimated the bulk of the county’s population would be inoculated by the end of June.Speaking to reporters Monday, Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said the county is now predicting a point of “community immunity” by mid- to late-July.”“We’re currently getting about 400,000 vaccinations into the arms of L.A. County residents each week, and we have probably over 2 million more first doses to go until 80% of all L.A. County (residents) aged 16 and older will have received at least one vaccine,” she said. “At the rate we’re going, we expect that we can reach this level somewhere in mid- to late-July. But that assumes that we continue to at least have 400,000 people vaccinated each week.
