Supermarket group Wm Morrison kept its full-year forecasts unchanged after reporting better than expected sales figures, while department store Debenhams was hit slightly harder.“Debenhams’ shares have slipped back after sales growth slipped around 2.5 per cent, though this was slightly offset by better than expected on-line sales, which were up 88.5 per cent,” said Michael Hewson, a market analyst at CMC Markets. 

Rising oil prices benefited the sector: Tullow Oil rose 1.1 per cent after bullish updates from two of its wells in Ghana and Mauritania, while Shell gained 1.14 per cent to 2,133.00p. However, BP lost ground news that it had to shut down its Alaska oil pipeline because of a leak.Other major gainers were telecoms giants BT, up 1.24 per cent to 187.30p, and Vodafone, up 1.17 per cent to 176.80p.The eurozone sovereign debt crisis also weighed on the US, to leave the markets closing broadly flat. Food and drink manufacturer Sara Lee eased about 2.5 per cent higher on rumours that it may be a target of private equity firms, while chemicals producer DuPont moved up after reports said it had tabled a $5.8bn cash bid for Danish enzyme and food ingredients firm Danisco. 

“The bid looks like it could well be successful after the Danish company said they would recommend the offer to its shareholders,” Hewson said. He added: “With the fourth-quarter earnings season set to officially begin after the bell tonight with the publication of Alcoa’s latest set of results, equities seem to be struggling for upward momentum after the recent gains of the past few weeks and there is a concern that any positive results from this latest earnings season could well already be priced in.”The Dow Jones industrial average, which has fallen for the last two sessions, closed down 37.31 points or 0.32 per cent at 11,637.45 while the the S&P 500 ended down 1.75 or 0.14 per cent, at 1,267. The Nasdaq Composite bucked the trend, closing 4.63 or 0.17 per cent higher at 2,707.80.

A judge has been hearing submissions from relevant parties over the last three days. Lawyers for BT and TalkTalk said they are particularly concerned about a clause in the DEA that could force ISPs to suspend the accounts of users suspected of repeatedly infringing copyright. They argue it could affect innocent internet users and will pass unfair administration costs onto them. Another point of contention is that the onus is on internet users to prove their innocence if they are suspected of copyright infringement. BIS says the costs will be split between copyright holders, who will pay 75 per cent, and ISPs who will be liable for the rest.BT and TalkTalk mounted a legal challenge against the act after it was passed during “wash-up” – the period between one parliament being dissolved and another being formed. It was passed last April by 189 votes to 47 after a two hour debate despite public outcry over its possible implications.

Forget Bitcoin. I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares in an ISA to retire early

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Markets remain depressed by the continuing uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re in a recession right now. And many people fear economic recovery could take some time. As such, some investors may feel Bitcoin has greater investment potential than FTSE 100 shares. After all, the cryptocurrency has little correlation to the wider economy.However, the long-term prospects for the stock market could be more attractive than Bitcoin. Many FTSE 100 shares are trading at low valuations. History shows that investors who buy at such times gain the benefit of long-term recovery potential. This could help them retire early, particularly if they buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA, shielding their returns from tax.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…Bitcoin vs FTSE 100 sharesBitcoin could become increasingly popular with investors in the short run, due to the uncertain outlook for the economy. However, it’s impossible to ascribe an intrinsic value to Bitcoin. It just sits there, earning its owner no interest. Meanwhile, its price movements are driven by nothing more than investor sentiment.Of course, sentiment also plays a part in the movement of FTSE 100 shares. Crucially though, shares can be ascribed an intrinsic value. After all, a share represents a part-ownership of a business. Businesses generate sales and profits, and often pay shareholders dividends.It may not be a precise science, but investors can use such tangible things as sales, profits and dividends to calculate an intrinsic value for the business. While sentiment can move a share price above or below intrinsic value in the short term, share prices tend to follow intrinsic value over the long term. As the great investor Benjamin Graham put it: “In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run, it is a weighing machine.”Recovery potential of FTSE 100 sharesIn the short term, FTSE 100 shares may continue to face a challenging backdrop. Although the stock market has recovered somewhat from its March lows, sentiment could deteriorate again. A resurgence of Covid-19, a deterioration in US/China relations, and a longer and/or deeper recession than currently projected are just a few of the things that could negatively impact sentiment towards FTSE 100 shares in the short term.However, the track record of the FTSE 100 shows it has always recovered from challenging periods. Then gone on to make new record highs. Right now, I see many blue-chip companies capable of navigating the current short-term challenges. Capable of returning to their pre-pandemic levels of sales, profits and dividends in the medium term. And capable of increasing all these things over the long term.Similarly, I see many share prices returning to pre-pandemic levels over the medium term. And the potential for many ‘multibaggers’  for buyers today over the long term.Retire earlier!Investors who bought a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares at low levels after the dotcom crash and financial-crisis meltdown are very likely to be sitting on high long-term returns. As such, despite the short-term challenges, it could be a shrewd move to follow the same strategy today. It could significantly improve your long-term financial prospects.

The Leys – School Team of the Month (March 2012)

Middle: N Dix-Pincott (doctor), C Rowe (forwards coach), A Sandeman, R Roberts, O Feast, S Howarth, J Travers, T Stockley, W Hooley, B Adebayo, L Copley (master i/c rugby). Front: J Edwards, I Ekweremadu, S Herbert, F Heathcote (capt), W McGahey, T Bailey, O LawsonTHE CAMBRIDGE school win their first Team of the Month award, their Daily Mail-RBS U18 Vase win bringing the curtain down on one of their greatest seasons.The side, based on the one that won the U15 Vase in 2009, won 17 games and lost just two – one when understrength in the Daily Mail Cup to Cambridge’s Hills Road VIth Form College.Twickenham apart, the highlight was the 20-10 win over an Oundle side who were second best in almost every area. Tries from fly-half Will Hooley, full-back Jack Thomson, wing Seb Howarth and prop Tom Bailey clinched a famous win against the Vase favourites.Led by Fraser Heathcote, the small co-ed boarding school – where rugby takes second place to hockey in the spring term – punched above its weight to reel off eight consecutive Vase wins.Back-row Heathcote, Bailey and lock Hugh Thomson all had big seasons up front whilst The Leys had a canny general in England U19 cap Hooley. His awareness of time and space and fine kicking – out of hand and on the ground – were vital components in the side’s success and centre Will McGahey and Howarth benefited hugely from his judgement.Howarth grabbed a hat-trick in the semi-final against Wirral GS, but at Twickenham it was Heathcote’s tireless and unselfish leadership that stood out.

Will Apopka schools reopen, even if for ‘a couple weeks’? Florida…

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSCOVID-19ReopeningSchoolsThe Center Square Previous articleOrange County shares its peak projections for COVID-19Next articleThreat, stress, and panic: Your personality traits are key to handling crisis Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Tam Pfeiffer “Optimistically, if you can get some sense of normalcy for two weeks or what have you, yeah, that’s optimistically where we’d like to land, never for 1 second sacrificing all the safety issues that need to be addressed,” Corcoran said.DeSantis said the state will “look at the evidence and make a decision” in the coming weeks about the May 4 reopening date. The governor initially closed schools until April 15 but extended the closure to May on April 1.The “evidence” cited by DeSantis, however, is an incorrect claim that COVID-19 has killed no one under the age of 25 nationwide and “doesn’t seem to threaten kids.”“I don’t think, nationwide, there’s been a single fatality under 25. For whatever reason, it just doesn’t seem to threaten kids. And we lose in Florida between five and 10 kids a year for the flu,” he said. “This one, for whatever reason, is much more dangerous if you’re 65 and plus than the flu, no doubt about that.”While children and young adults appear less vulnerable to the disease, they can be infected and can be contagious, public health officials warn, and the governor’s claim about no one under 25 years old dying from COVID-19 is untrue.According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least three children nationwide have died from the disease, including 13-year-old medical cannabis oil pioneer Charlotte Figi this week.The Washington Post reported at least nine COVID-19 positive Americans under the age of 20 have died across the U.S.DeSantis said a potential return-to-school order could be applied regionally, county-by-county or even school-by-school.“It may be that not every county’s going to be treated the same in this,” he said. “There’s nothing wrong with that. If the problem is different in certain parts, then we should recognize that.”Although there are technical issues and disparities in access to technology, DeSantis praised the “great job” school administrators, teachers, students and parents have done in adjusting quickly to distance learning offered by districts and through Florida Virtual School (FLVS), the statewide digital school district created by lawmakers in 2000.Orlando-based FLVS provides more than 100 K-12 courses and is booting up to serve all of the state’s 2.7 million K-12 students by early May.FLVS also can provide curriculum beyond Florida. It has signed a $525,000 agreement with the Alaska Department of Education to serve more than 300 public school students during the pandemic and train teachers on how to conduct online classes.“School is more than a location – education can happen anywhere,” Alaska Education Commissioner Michael Johnson said in a statement about the virtual school “partnership.” I will home school my children instead of sending them back to school during this uncertain time. The fact that our governor is not adequately informed and briefing the public inappropriate this inaccurate information says to me that to suggest our children are not vulnerable based on their age is irresponsible to say the least. No Governor Desantis, you dont get to gamble with my children’s lives. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Reply Daniel Diaz What is certain is Gov. Ron DeSantis and state Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran want schools to reopen at some point in May, or perhaps even in June.“We obviously would love to get back to normal as soon as we can,” DeSantis told reporters Thursday. “If it’s safe, we want kids to be in school. I think most parents want that. Even if it’s for a couple of weeks, we think there would be value in that.” 3 COMMENTS Be ascared…be bery ascared. Wake up, Einsteins. The population of Orange County, Florida is 1.3 million+. Those residents confimed to have been infected with the coronavirus is just over 1000 people in the entire county. That is less than one tenth of a percent. Can someone say, “Government Power grab”? Stop believing your govenrment officials. They will lead you like sheep to your own slaughter. April 13, 2020 at 10:31 pm By John Haughey | The Center SquareFlorida schools have been in a distance-learning mode since March 30 and are set to reopen May 4, but whether that is feasible for the remainder of the school year is uncertain. So I should be in a small portable with students that could be carrying the virus and them come home and give it to my 17 and 1 year old?

Limerick – viewed through the lens

first_imgFacebook Postcards present city as busy and vibrantA RANGE of images that depict the character and beauty of Limerick city have just come on stream. While citizens of the Treaty City have had reason in recent years to bemoan the less than flattering images that all too frequently flashed on to the television screen and into newspaper pages, a just released photographic collection of Limerick landmarks, locations, river and streetscapes,Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up gives a realistic view of a city rich in heritage, culture and up to the minute development.David O’Mahony of O’Mahony Booksellers’ emporium, and a driving force behind the radical redesign of the Milk Market, believes that images of Limerick as portrayed nationally and internationally, have not reflected the “real beauty and vitality of this ancient city”.He explains: “We took it as a challenge to quickly produce marketable views that you could be proud of sending, inserting, saving, selling or even just talk about.“These images and locations are personally chosen and we hope this will be the start of a complete series of scenes of Limerick”.The just released first range of images includes packs of three and 10 assorted greeting cards, single greeting cards sold in lots of 30, and a collection of eight assorted postcards that are large enough to accommodate a letter.On the back cover of these open out cards is the message that Limerick, the Riverside City, is the capital of the Mid West region and the third largest city in Ireland.It continues: “Founded by the Vikings over 11 centuries ago, its name comes from the Norse word, Laemrich, meaning Rich Land. “The Limerick of the 21st century is a busy and progressive city which is also a seat of learning, housing the 20,000 students of the University of Limerick, Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology.“It is a city of contrasts in that it has a medieval core and an intriguing history and yet, is also a thriving commercial and tourist centre.“With a vibrant cultural centre, the city has a host of attractions, from the Hunt Museum, Milk Market, Belltable, Pery Square, Thomond Park and the Arena at the University of Limerick, to suit all tastes all year”.Particularly attractive, in this reporter’s opinion, are interior shots of the Hunt Museum’s treasures, the mellow medieval beauty of St Mary’s Cathedral, a kaleidoscope of colourful produce at the Milk Market, light reflected on the River Shannon, depictions of Gothic and Roman architecture and the grace and elegance of Limerick’s Georgian quarter.Who knows, perhaps Postcards from Limerick will become as well known as Postcards from Abroad!

Kirk tapped for ‘CARES’ award

Watch Before It’s… Print Article Book Nook to reopen The Quilts for Valor awards are given to military men and women who have been wounded in action. However, the exception was made to award it to a civilian when the commander of the hospital wrote the Foundation and requested that they make an exception for Kirk.Kirk said that he is honored and humbled by the recognitions that he has received during his years of volunteer service.“I retired in July and started my volunteer service in August,” he said. “It’s just my nature to volunteer. It’s what I enjoy so it’s what I do.”Kirk’s volunteer service with the Red Cross included keeping time records for the volunteers and making a monthly report. But, on his own time, Kirk visited all of the clinics, wards and work areas to keep the patients and staff “pumped up.”And a cheerful word and a peppermint could lift most all spirits.Over those 21 years, Kirk became known around Fort Rucker as “The Peppermint Man” just as he is known around Troy.Kirk laughingly said that he doesn’t remember when he started handing out peppermints “to ladies only” but it’s a habit that he enjoys and one that brings smiles to others.“I hand peppermints to cashiers, sales people and folks I meet on the street,” he said. “It seems to brighter their days.”Linda J. Smith of Troy agrees that the Peppermint Man brings a “mint” of happiness to all of those with whom he shares the red and white candies.“When you run into Mr. John, he gives you a peppermint,” Smith said. “When you see him before church or after, he gives you a peppermint. When you see him in his choir robe, he gives you a peppermint and a hug. I think the peppermint might come with a silent prayer, too.”Smith said the treat is not just the candy.“The treat is the hug, the smile, the twinkle in his eyes and the time he gives you,” she said.Kirk said that he always tries to see the sunny side of everything and wants everybody else to see it, too.
