Regulatory change across Europe is transforming the market dynamics and opens up many new opportunities.”He added: “Although the restrictions of the newly regulated French market will, as anticipated, impact revenues in the second half, we have a strong pipeline of new licensees which we expect to more than offset this in 2011 and help maintain our growth trajectory.” Thursday 26 August 2010 8:24 pmcenter_img whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The Royal Mail share price has soared 40%. Time to buy?

first_img The Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price has been one of the market’s big winners over the past few weeks. The stock crumbled to a low of around 120p in the middle of April. However, since hitting this level, investor sentiment towards the business has dramatically improved.And as investors have returned to the Royal Mail share price, it has surged by more than 40% from the April lows. But despite this performance, the company has not reported a dramatic improvement in its underlying fundamentals.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…Royal Mail share price on offerLike many companies, the past few weeks have been an extremely turbulent time for Royal Mail. The group has suffered disruption to its operations, and, as of yet, it’s not clear what the ultimate impact of the coronavirus crisis will be on the organisation’s bottom line.While the company has benefited from an increase in parcel deliveries in the lockdown, this hasn’t been enough to offset rising costs and declining letter deliveries.A recent trading update noted that revenue from letters declined 23% in April, which was only partially offset by a 20% increase in parcel revenue. Overall, revenues declined £22m and costs jumped £40m in the month.We don’t know how the business fared in May at this stage, but if the trends seen in April continued, it might be the case that Royal Mail’s revenue continued to decline.As well as falling sales, the company also remains exposed to other risks. A second wave of coronavirus and economic uncertainty could continue to weigh on the Royal Mail share price during the second half of 2020.Unfortunately, Royal Mail also lost its CEO. In the middle of May, the company announced that chief executive Rico Back would step back with immediate effect. Non-executive chairman Keith Williams is stepping in on an interim basis into the role.Losing a CEO who was only with the business for two years in the middle of a crisis seems careless. The company needs a clear strategy to navigate through the crisis and rebuild over the next few years.It is going to be challenging to set out this strategy without a fixed CEO. This uncertainty could continue to weigh on the Royal Mail share price for some time.Setting out a planIn the last trading update published to the market, Royal Mail declared that it would provide a further update on its long-term plan towards the end of June. With this being the case, it might be sensible to wait for this plan before taking a position in the stock.The trading update should give investors some more background on how the company has been coping with the coronavirus crisis, and what it plans to do to reinvigorate the business and drive growth over the next few years. There might be some significant changes, and possibly even a cash call.As such, staying on the sidelines could be a sensible strategy for the next few weeks. Image source: Getty Images.

Day of Prayer is emotional experience for Sudanese congregation

Michael Paul, following the worship service on the Day of Prayer for South Sudan on Feb. 16. Photo: Joe Bjordal/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The observance of a Day of Prayer for South Sudan on Feb. 16 took on a very personal nature at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church in Moorhead, Minnesota. The congregation is predominantly made up of Sudanese refugees and their prayers were not just for peace in the war-torn country half a world away, but specifically for mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers — family members left behind.Many wiped away tears as their vicar, the Rev. Michael Kiju Paul, himself a Sudanese refugee, prayed “Father, save South Sudan!”Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori called for the Day of Prayer saying “the world is increasingly concerned over the rampant violence in South Sudan.” The Day of Prayer was also observed in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and in the Reformed Church in America.The Rev. Michael Kiju Paul, new vicar of St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, Moorhead, Minnesota (Diocese of North Dakota), leads the congregation in prayer for South Sudan before celebrating Holy Communion on Feb. 16. Photo: Joe Bjordal/Episcopal News Service“I want to thank the presiding bishop for designating this day as a Day of Prayer for South Sudan. It means a lot to me and it means a lot to the Sudanese people here,” said Paul in an interview with ENS following the worship service. “We are badly hit and affected by what is happening back home. We weep for our country and the Americans here in our midst weep with us. The hearts of the members of this congregation are torn apart by what is happening back there.”Massive loss of life and displacementA 2011 referendum resulted in the division of the African country of Sudan into two nations —Sudan and South Sudan. The referendum was one of the conditions of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement signed in 2005 that brought an end to civil wars that spanned more than five decades. But peace has been fragile. Last year a division in the government of the Republic of South Sudan brought about the ousting of the vice president and fueled rising unrest within the army. On Dec. 15, fighting broke out in the capital city of Juba between rival tribal factions of the Presidential Guard. Within days thousands of members of the Nuer tribe had been murdered in Juba and the unrest spread to other regions of the country and took on an ethnic dimension.The International Crisis Group estimates that more than 10,000 people have been killed since mid-December. The United Nations, which has observers on the ground in South Sudan, reports that hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the fighting and that 80,000 South Sudanese have crossed the borders in search of safety into neighboring Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Sudan. U.N. observers also report that nearly two-thirds of the country’s population is at risk of food insecurity.On Feb. 10, the Anglican Communion News Service published a report from World Watch Monitor saying that scores of female church workers were raped and massacred in the South Sudanese town of Bor. The report quotes Episcopal Bishop of Bor Ruben Akurdit Ngong, who said that women had sought shelter in a church compound and that most of the churches in the diocese had been destroyed by rebel soldiers.In her call to prayer, Jefferts Schori noted that the Episcopal Church of Sudan and South Sudan “is partnering with others on the ground in that work of peace-building.” Speaking in Moorhead following the prayer service, Paul said the church in Sudan “has been in the forefront, mediating and talking and attempting to bring the warring parties together to discuss peace.” He said that the church was also “fully involved in the war that brought us independence and has never left its people.”“Right now, in the bushes of South Sudan, in the cities and towns, the church is standing up and really trying to bring these people together to bring peace and allow people to begin to rebuild that country that has been ravaged by war for over 50 years,” said Paul.On Feb. 10, the South Sudan Council of Churches issued a statement from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the site of peace talks, saying that church representatives, including Sudanese Episcopal Bishop Enoch Tombe, were on hand to “accompany the peace talks with prayers and to deliver a prophetic message of peace from God and the people of South Sudan … ‘We want peace in our beloved land. We are tired of war!’”Deacon Zechariah Reng and Daniel Mabiroh Suhiuk pray before leading the weekly worship service in the Sudanese dialect of Dinka at St. John the Divine, Moorhead, Minnesota on Feb. 16. Photo: Joe Bjordal/Episcopal News ServiceRemembering; praying; hopingEmotions ran deep at St. John the Divine on Feb. 16 as prayers and memories focused on a homeland far away and left behind long ago – for some nearly 20 years.Vestry member Helen Lodu was among the first Sudanese refugees to settle in the metropolitan area of twin cities Fargo, North Dakota and Moorhead, Minnesota in 1995. She said “the war was just so bad we had to get the children out of the country.” They lived in Kenya for two years before they found an opportunity to go to the United States and join her brother, who had previously settled in Northern Minnesota.Lodu, whose husband recently returned from Sudan and witnessed the current violence first-hand, said it was sad to have been at war for so long, to have fought to gain independence and yet be back at “square one.”She was nonetheless buoyed by the Day of Prayer.“This day means a lot to me because I have never been able to go back to Sudan and see my people. I pray that God will listen to the prayers of all who unite themselves; that one day peace will come; that those who suffer can enjoy the land that God has given them; and we can go back.”Another vestry member, Albert Simbe, fled Sudan with his late wife in 1998 and settled in Fargo-Moorhead. He said he has recently received reports from relatives in South Sudan about the violence that has erupted since Dec. 15.“I really feel grateful that people in the United States are thinking about the suffering people in South Sudan. What broke out there on Dec. 15 is terrible, with thousands of people killed, displaced and suffering with no food, no water, no essential commodities. I am praying very hard that the peace talks in Addis Ababa will succeed. If they do not, as one rebel leader said, the country will crumble,” said Simbe.“I am praying that Almighty God will be among them in the peace talks, so that they will agree and the country can be at peace,” he said.Hospitality brings a change of characterLodu and Simbe are but two of nearly 3,000 Sudanese refugees who have settled in the Fargo-Moorhead area. The influx started in the mid-1990s and gained momentum around 2000 when dozens of the Lost Boys of Sudan began to arrive. They were refugees who fled war-torn Sudan without parents, often alone and seeking asylum initially in neighboring countries to avoid being drafted into war. Many would eventually settle in locations around the world.Many of the arriving Sudanese refugees were members of the Episcopal Church of Sudan and Episcopal faith communities in the United States rose up and stepped forward to provide assistance. One of those communities was St. John the Divine in Moorhead, a congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of North Dakota.Barbara Glasrud, a 60-year member of St. John’s and its current senior warden, said on Feb. 16 that she remembers “vividly how it all started,” recalling a visit in the late 1990s from Andrew Fairfield, then bishop of North Dakota.“He told us that these people were coming into our area; that they were Episcopalians and Anglicans; that they needed a church home; and that he would like us to welcome them. We did and the rest is history,” she said.Glasrud said that in the beginning it was just a few of the Lost Boys. She recalls members of the congregation meeting them at the airport; helping to find housing, and for many basic clothing needed for a climate in sharp contrast to the deserts of Africa. Then, she said, families started coming and “soon we had a big population of Sudanese people in our congregation.”Having changed the character of the Anglo congregation with Scandinavian roots that had worshiped in the historic church building since 1858, St. John’s called its first Sudanese priest in 2000. It was Lodu’s husband, Alex, who was ordained in the Episcopal Church of Sudan and was serving as a professor at a theological college in Mundri at the time of their departure. He served St. John’s for 10 years.Paul arrived in mid-2013. He was ordained a priest in the Diocese of Kajo Keji in South Sudan and after settling in the United States served St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in San Diego, California for six years. When financial resources no longer allowed St. Luke’s to have a full-time priest, Paul sought employment outside the church.Aware that there was a Sudanese congregation in the Fargo-Moorhead area, he found work in window and door manufacturing. He asked his bishop in San Diego to introduce him to North Dakota Bishop Michael Smith, who eventually asked Paul to volunteer at St. John’s.“Father Michael seemed to fit right in,” said Glasrud, and in December the congregation called Paul to be its vicar, a part-time position for the timebeing.Paul notes that without a Sudanese pastor, participation in the congregation’s three Sunday worship services – in English, Dinka and Arabic – had dwindled but have now started to revive.“As the new vicar, I am working day in and day out, calling the Sudanese community to come back. There is a large Sudanese community here and there is no reason why we cannot gather as brothers and sisters to worship together.”He also said that members of the congregation will launch new efforts to educate the community and other congregations in the diocese about the issues surrounding South Sudan and invite them “to pray for our country.”Paul will formally be installed by Smith at a Celebration of New Ministry on Feb. 22.

This is a fantastic clip, somewhat amusing, from the beginning of the match.ADVERTISEMENTWasps’ Josh Lewsey looks to have targeted Leicester’s Frank Murphy with a huge shoulder, despite Shaun Edwards specifically saying before hand that they wouldn’t be targeting him.There didn’t appear to be much use of the arms in the tackle, but Lewsey got away with it.

The house is an inter terrace house in the lush verdant surrounds of Thomson suburbs, facing the fields of James Cook University. Our clients were a couple who had bought the old single storey house as their matrimonial home. The intention was to demolish and rebuild a new house. Typical of intermediate terrace houses in Singapore, the frontage is 6m with a substantial depth of 21m.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksDrawing inspiration from the lush greenery in the neighborhood, and the couple’s love for the outdoors, we sought to explore how the light and greenery of the outdoors can be brought to the deep interiors of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlanMost intermediate terrace houses are deep and the first instinct is usually to maximize the floor area. The result is the central part of the house remains dark, with only the front and the rear of house enjoying natural light and ventilation. Our strategy was to enhance the spaces instead of strictly maximizing it.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksA planting strip is introduced at the front of the house to create a visual green separation from the neighbor. A continuous vertical wall spanning 2 and half stories serves as a potential green feature wall. The living room faces this wall at the 1st storey where one can observe the creeping plants climb to the 2nd storey where the master bedroom resides.Save this picture!DiagramAt the centre of the house, between the dining room and the kitchen, is an air well that is open to the sky. This allows ample light and ventilation to enter the kitchen and makes for an inviting place which the couple can indulge in their love for cooking and entertainment. Above the staircase is a generous skylight and we designed an open riser staircase to further enhance the naturally lighted experience.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksThe master bedroom faces the front of the facade and we enhanced the outdoor experience with a double volume balcony that spans the entire width of the bedroom. In order to mitigate the west directed sun from the frontage, a series of sliding vertical screens were designed. The effect is a striking feature for the house without compromising on the user’s comfort and enjoyment of the outdoors.Project gallerySee allShow lessBeyond Ruin Porn: What’s Behind Our Obsession with Decay?ArticlesFirst Job Hunt: Does Size Matter?Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/537242/airwell-house-adx-architects Clipboard Projects CopyHouses, Renovation•Singapore Airwell House / ADX Architects Area:  253 m² Area:  253 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: ADX Architects Area Area of this architecture project Singapore Year:  ArchDaily Photographs Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/537242/airwell-house-adx-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeADX ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSingaporePublished on August 15, 2014Cite: “Airwell House / ADX Architects” 15 Aug 2014.

The project is located in the center of Karaj city in a residential context, somewhere in the narrow alleys where old houses are rapidly being demolished and turned into apartments with a maximum construction area and overlooking each other. The house belongs to an old family in this neighborhood, who have a table in the language of the parish people that means the house is the place where religious-culture events are held. It is not possible to discover people except by recognizing the meanings they use in life and it was important to know what these rituals mean and value to them.Save this picture!© Deed StudioSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Deed StudioThe mother’s house (Sarv banoo) which was previously integrated, must be redefined in two layers, also, the upper layer must be sufficiently independent for children and grandchildren. One of our main challenges was the need to create a structure that responds to the ideological dichotomy of generations, which at the same time creates differences as a hole in proportion to the age of the house in the neighborhood and meets the needs for the icon of the house object in the neighborhood, on the other hand, the economic conditions of a cultured family were limiting.Save this picture!© Deed StudioThe first step in the direction of independence is to remove the surfaces of the internal communication staircase and place it in the yard with more emphasis, so that it’s known as an intermediate space in defining the independence of two layers, both from inside the yard and from the alley space. Stairs act as a platform for interaction, especially on religious event days. By adding a layer to the façade, we tried to control the problem of overlooking the opposite apartments and the light, and provide a portico with the desired spatial (space) quality for both layers of the house.Save this picture!© Deed StudioFor the shelters and the outside view of the stairs, we used turquoise glass with a dark to light spectrum to have shadows at different times of the day, and on the other hand, to remind the role of the event at home on a neighborhood scale. The courtyard garden was removed to create more space for events and smaller gardens were placed in the space between the columns of the porch so that the trees could be used to control the light and visibility of the opposite apartments, and also play a role in the exclusive character of the house.Save this picture!© Deed StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessBoon Rawd Brewery Headquarters / pbmSelected ProjectsTEA-Z Store / AFFDSelected Projects Share Photographs ArchDaily Iranlast_img read more

The legacy of Thomas Sankara

first_imgExcerpts from a talk given by Larry Hales to a New York City meeting of Workers World Party on Nov. 7.Thomas Sankara, president of Burkina Faso, 1984-1987.In Burkina Faso since the uprising that drove Blaise Compaore from office, Thomas Sankara’s name and contribution to revolutionary thought and the struggle of the Burkinabe people has shone greatly.I would encourage everyone to study revolutionary leadership in the oppressed world, especially those leaders from Africa, such as Amilcar Cabral, Kwame Nkrumah and Sankara, to name a few. Here is a passage from one of Sankara’s speeches, on International Women’s Day, March 8, 1987:“The revolution’s promises are already a reality for men. But for women, they are still merely a rumor. And yet the authenticity and the future of our revolution depend on women. Nothing definitive or lasting can be accomplished in our country as long as a crucial part of ourselves is kept in this condition of subjugation — a condition imposed … by various systems of exploitation.“Posing the question of women in Burkinabe society today means posing the abolition of the system of slavery to which they have been subjected for millennia. The first step is to try to understand how this system functions, to grasp its real nature in all its subtlety, in order then to work out a line of action that can lead to women’s total emancipation.“We must understand how the struggle of Burkinabe women today is part of the worldwide struggle of all women and, beyond that, part of the struggle for the full rehabilitation of our continent. The condition of women is therefore at the heart of the question of humanity itself, here, there and everywhere.”The capitalist-controlled media mention the ghost or influence of Capt. Thomas Sankara. Much of it labels him authoritarian, but a few mention some achievements of the revolutionary process of 1983-1987. Female genital mutilation was made illegal, as were forced marriages and polygamy. Women were recruited for high government positions.Behind Sankara’s assassinationLand was stripped from feudal landlords and redistributed to peasant farmers. Grain production in the country was more than doubled. The country was on its way to becoming self sufficient. Illiteracy was combated and an immunization program was started.These are just some of the achievements in Burkina, a country that had seen military coup after coup, and why the committees for the defense of the revolution, the armed masses, were being raised up.The conditions for revolution made it difficult for Burkina Faso as they did for every revolution. I don’t think we can point to a country where there has been a mature capitalist class and the objective conditions for social revolution.The hardships and contradictions in Burkina Faso were owed in large part to the long history of colonialism and neocolonialism. The assassination of Comrade Sankara, however, was not due to any mistakes but due to the mineral wealth of the country and the dangers to imperialism of a successful and deep-going fundamental social change in Africa in the 1980s.There are a few groups that claim to uphold the legacy of Thomas Sankara now. The masses have remained in the street as the military has seized power. The people of Burkina demand a return to civilian rule and new elections.The people of Burkina Faso have a long memory and are refusing to be cowed by violence from the military in the service of Western imperialists. This uprising is not at its end, and we wish a continued path of struggle to end oppression, imperialist domination and superexploitation. The legacy of Thomas Sankara shines brightly.Down with imperialism! Power to the workers and people of Burkina Faso!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
