The company made an underlying pre-tax profit of £40.1m in the half year to the end of September, up from £38.1m the year before. Meanwhile Dairy Crest has secured a contract to supply Tesco with 50m litres of milk – about five per cent of the supermarket giant’s sales. It said higher profits in cheese – up 58 per cent to £12.5m – “more than offset” a lower performance in its dairies, which are battling against a highly competitive milk market. whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more

UK stock investing: 2 of the best shares to buy in an ISA right now

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Investor appetite for UK stocks has taken a bit of a smack in recent days. It’s not a huge surprise given recent news flow surrounding the battle against Covid-19.As Joshua Mahony, Senior Market analyst at IG, notes: “For all the positive efforts we are seeing to administer vaccines worldwide, the virus continues to pose a major risk given the ongoing mutations that are taking place.”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…UK share investors have taken fright on signs that these Covid-19 variants could be resistant to vaccines. The merging of mutations in Britain and California has rattled nerves as well. It’s possible that cyclical shares like banks, energy producers and travel providers could come under fresh pressure should mutations continue to emerge.It’s clear that stock investors need to remain on their toes in 2021. But I don’t plan to stop buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA any time soon. I think there are plenty of UK stocks that should thrive, even in the event of a long economic downturn.A UK share I’d drink toI think Diageo (LSE: DGE), for instance, is a perfect UK share for these uncertain times. It’s one I own in my ISA. Demand for alcoholic beverages remains stable during economic upturns and downturns. And this FTSE 100 firm’s drinks, such as Guinness and Captain Morgan, have the sort of colossal brand power that make them ‘must haves’, regardless of economic conditions. People will find a way to fit them in their shopping budgets, whatever the weather. This is why I think the company is worth every inch of its elevated valuation. Today, it trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 27 times.These qualities explain why City analysts reckon Diageo’s earnings will keep rising over the medium term. Bottom-line rises of 3% and 12% are forecast for the fiscal years to June 2021 and 2022 respectively. A word of warning though. City forecasts can miss by a mile if trading conditions suddenly worsen. In the case of Diageo, profits could come under pressure if the Covid-19 crisis does indeed stretch on and bars, restaurants and pubs remain shuttered.Space heroLok’nStore Group (LSE: LOK) is a UK share which could actually benefit from further coronavirus lockdowns. Retailers which operate online have seen demand for their goods balloon as shops have been closed. This has caused a massive scramble for space in which to store their stock, boosting occupancy levels across self-storage facilities.That said, there’s always a risk that falling consumer confidence of late could lead to reduced demand for Lok’nStore’s spaces, both directly and as a result of falling e-commerce activity. Today, City analysts reckon earnings at this UK stock will rise 35% and 6% in the financial years to June 2021 and 2022 respectively.This leaves it trading on a forward P/E ratio of 45. It’s the sort of elevated rating that could cause a severe share price correction if trading conditions do indeed begin to deteriorate.

Mayor Kilsheimer delivers State of the City address this morning

first_img“…We should all want a smarter, more effective government. And while we may not be able to bridge our biggest philosophical differences this year, we can make real progress. With or without this Congress, I will keep taking actions that help the economy grow. But I can do a whole lot more with your help. Because when we act together, there is nothing the United States of America can’t achieve.”– Barack Obama, State of the Union January 24th, 2012We won’t know the answers to any of these questions until tomorrow when Kilsheimer takes the stage and delivers this historic speech. The content, surprises, and announcements will be unveiled then. One thing is for certain, the speculation and conversations will not end with the conclusion of his address. Please enter your name here  Why an early morning address? And why in December? I’m not sure why the administration wants to start at 8AM. It seems like an after 5PM start time would allow more people to attend, but does the December 12th date have meaning? It is about one year from the deadline for Apopka Mayor and City Commission candidates having to file their applications to run for office… So is Kilsheimer going to announce his re-election campaign for Mayor of Apopka tomorrow?Why choose The Highland Manor over City Hall?Certainly The Highland Manor is a beautiful and appropriate venue for a speech, but is there symbolism involved? Earlier in 2016 there was controversy over The Highland Manor being potentially moved or torn down to make way for The City Center to come. Why frame that tension of old and new Apopka unless you had a solution? Will this be one of the “big announcements” Sargent referenced?  “Here’s what I can tell you about Monday’s presentation: The State of the City address is important to recognize Apopka’s accomplishments during the past year and to share the many transformative changes coming in 2017 and beyond. This is an exciting time for our city when we are improving public services, creating new city facilities, inviting new and expanding business and improving the quality of life for residents. Mayor Kilsheimer is working with city staff to research information, compile data and write Monday’s address. We plan to present a synopsis of city projects and goals. We also will have some big announcements.”Okay… not exactly direct answers to my questions. But I understand. They want to keep it close to the vest. They have surprises in store. They want to control the message. I can understand that, even respect it. But I am a reporter. I’m curious. I want to know, and I want my readers to know as well.And the only thing left to do in the light of limited information as a reporter is to change hats and become an analyst. It’s time for a little healthy speculation on tomorrow’s speech. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 State of  the City AddressThis Morning at 8AMat The Highland Manor“The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the latest generation. … In giving freedom to the slave we assure freedom to the free—honorable alike in what we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save or meanly lose the last best hope of earth. Other means may succeed; this could not fail. The way is plain, peaceful, generous, just—a way which if followed the world will forever applaud and God must forever bless.”– Abraham Lincoln, State of the Union December 1st, 1862Opinion/AnalysisBy Reggie Connell   I love the State of the Union Address. I have watched every one since the Reagan administration. It is an historic opportunity for a President to give an account of how the nation has fared over the previous year, and more importantly a chance to lay out their plan for the future. It involves almost every part of federal government weighing-in from cabinet positions to staff and a chance for the White House writers to really shine.My first Apopka City Council meeting was a little less than a year ago as Managing Editor of The Apopka Voice. At the end of the meeting during public comment someone asked Mayor Joe Kilsheimer about a “State of the City” address. Kilsheimer said they were working on it.I was excited to hear this news. I didn’t realize a mayor gave a state of the city address. I sent a followup question to Apopka Public Information Officer Robert Sargent, and he confirmed they were working on it, but did not have a date. Every few months since then I have asked about the State of the City, until finally at the City Council Workshop in November, Kilsheimer announced the date – December 12th. You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here   Sargent provided this response: 1. Who is the primary author of the speech? Who else worked on it as far as writing the address?2. How many departments weighed-in? Will the speech cover each department or is it more of a general outline of the state of the city?3. Has Mayor Kilsheimer delivered a State of the City address before? If not do you know when the last State of the City was delivered?4. Why did you decide on December 12th? And why did you decide on 8AM?5. Why did you choose The Highland Manor over City Hall as a venue?6. How many words/pages (some measurement) is the address?7. Do you or Mayor Kilsheimer (or both) have any comments or thoughts on the State of the City address?8. Are there any excerpts or a theme you can release? Is there a title (such as “setting Apopka up for success” type of phrase you will use).9. What issues will be addressed in the speech?

FACTORY REFUNCTIONALIZATION In Buenos Aires a law protects the factories built before the 70s that are deactivated and allows building in the interior space as much as the rules of use, lighting and natural ventilation allow it without altering the exterior volume in order to preserve the architectural and cultural heritage of a metropolis that used to coexist with large facilities. The factory was the union of two buildings, basically a large shed with a 4-meter-high reinforced concrete mezzanine and above this a gabled shed with a steel structure and a corrugated sheet metal roof, reaching a maximum height of approximately 12 meters. and a smaller lateral construction of ground floor and a high floor in reinforced concrete.Save this picture!© Guido ChouelaSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Guido ChouelaA meticulous survey and structural search was carried out to determine how to modify and re-functionalize the interior of the building without altering the volumetry, knowing that to achieve this we would have to modify the location of some columns and build a complete mezzanine on the first floor. We opted for a combination of steel and concrete for the relocation of columns and main reinforcements and a W steel profile structure and cementitious plates for the mezzanine. The search to preserve the factory identity was decisive both for conceiving the houses as lofts and for the choice and use of the materials chosen to build them. The corrugated galvanized sheet metal of the roof of the shed opened the way to cover the front of the building in white prepainted corrugated sheet, as well as in interior patios where we chose to combine it with natural zinc plated sheet metal to amplify the passive use of solar energy. Given the high heights of the mezzanines, we opted for a system that combines fixed parts made of polycarbonate and movable parts made of natural aluminum, mounted on square section steel tube frames. The exposed pvc electricity pipes in sight and in the mezzanine above the ceiling give the impression of entering a technical corridor.Save this picture!© Guido ChouelaSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Guido ChouelaTo divide the functional units, we use ceramic bricks with the joint taken, in plain sight, pearl gray painted, similar to the color of the cement micro-floor pavement, except for the balconies and common areas where we use precast concrete tiles. The rusty corrugated sheets that serve as a boiserie in the corridors are those that we removed from the existing sheds and that combined with the exposed hand bricks, the black access doors to the lofts, the semi-hidden or indirect overhead led lighting help create that atmosphere a little foreign to everyday life with the intention of reminding us of the environment that we associate with the almost artisanal manufacture of other times. In contrast we chose the electro-welded galvanized mesh for the front and the doors of the ground floor lofts, for the stairs, steps and mezzanine rails of the double height lofts and also self-supporting double reinforced glass rails on the balconiesSave this picture!© Guido ChouelaProject gallerySee allShow lessBoard + Batten House / BirdseyeSelected ProjectsDescoberta Café / Estúdio Vinicius MacêdoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Villa Ortúzar, Buenos Aires, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

New Livestock Effort Will Protect Animals From Abuse

first_imgProducers and consumers can get more information about See it? Stop it! at SeeitStopit.org.   The program stresses that consumers have the right to expect that animals raised for food are raised humanely. Although it is uncommon on farms, when animal abuse, neglect, harm or mishandling takes place, anyone who witnesses the act has an obligation to speak up. Farmers participating in the See it? Stop it! initiative provide their employees with education and promote the importance of proper and responsible animal care. In addition, they encourage and enable employees to immediately report any sign of animal abuse, neglect, harm, or mishandling. This program gives farmers a way to provide assurance to consumers that they are doing the right thing. In fact, as a condition of employment, many pork operations require workers to sign policy documents that confirm their roles and responsibilities for animal care, including the reporting of any animal abuse they witness. Such policies usually include disciplinary action, including termination, for failure to report abuse. The initiative is an adjunct to the pork industry’s We Care program, which promotes pork producers’ long-standing commitment to responsible pork production and to continuous improvement in animal care, handling and transportation. It also bolsters the Pork Quality Assurance® (PQA) Plus® program, which outlines best practices for proper animal care, and the Transport Quality Assurance program, which certifies people who transport hogs in proper care and handling methods. By Gary Truitt – Apr 1, 2013 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home News Feed New Livestock Effort Will Protect Animals From Abuse Josh Tranery with Indiana Pork says this kind of a system will not only do a better job of protecting animals, but also protect producers from exploitation from misleading images given to radical animal activist groups, “We need to stop animal abuse, but not allow misleading images and reports to damage the entire industry.” Legislation currently before the Indiana House would prevent unauthorized photography and video images of farming operations from being made public and require that such images or complaints of animal abuse be reported to proper authorities within 48 hours.   SB373 along with See it? Stop it! would provide a fast and credible reporting system that would protect animals from abuse while protecting farming operations from exploitation by activist groups and the media. To date, groups that have signed onto the program include the National Pork Board, National Pork Producers Council, National Milk Producers Federation, the Center for Food Integrity, and the National Dairy Farm Program.   This is the first time that different species groups have joined forces on the animal care issue. “Pigs and cows are not the same so there are not many things we can collaborate on, but See it? Stop it! is one things we can all agree on,” said Neikamp. SHARE New Livestock Effort Will Protect Animals From AbuseTwo livestock groups have come together to launch a program aimed at stopping animal abuse and reassuring consumers that all is well on the farm. The program is called See it? Stop it!, and it is the first of its kind to empower all who work with animals to be on the lookout for animal abuse.  Sherrie Neikamp, Pork Checkoff director of animal welfare, said the pork and dairy industry have joined forces to make sure any case of animal abuse or neglect is reported quickly and to the proper authorities, “Animal abuse is absolutely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.” The guidelines of the program state that animal care is the responsibility of everyone who works with animals , “Individuals who work around animals have an obligation to immediately report any signs of deliberate animal abuse or neglect.”  “Animal well-being always has been the top priority of pork producers,” said NPPC President Randy Spronk, a producer from Edgerton, MN. “The See It? Stop It! initiative confirms that commitment and is a way to let animal caretakers know that it’s their moral responsibility to speak up to stop any animal abuse.” The voluntary program encourages farm employees to report cases of animal abuse to the proper authorities and requires farmers who participate in the program to set up an alert system to provide for the timely reporting of any animal mistreatment. According to the See it? Stop it! web site, “The initiative encourages and empowers individuals working with or around animals to immediately report any signs of deliberate animal abuse, neglect, harm or mishandling to a supervisor or other individual responsible for enforcement of proper animal care, to ensure the concern is heard and addressed.”  Farmers and farm managers are required by the program to: Provide accessible and reliable contacts that have immediate authority to address reports of animal care concerns; Take swift action to correct all instances of inappropriate animal care; Ensure employees who raise concerns in good faith are not penalized. Neikamp says producers can learn more about the guidelines of the program and download materials by visiting the special web site, “They can even download posters that can be place in barns to provide employees with proper contact information to report abuse.” SHARE New Livestock Effort Will Protect Animals From Abuse Previous articleEnvironmental Groups, Beekeepers File Lawsuit To Cancel Seed Treatment RegistrationsNext articleA Good Year to Secure that Nitrogen Gary Truittlast_img read more

Military government deport’s leading daily’s Australian publisher

first_imgNews June 2, 2021 Find out more News June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the military government’s arrest and expulsion of Fiji Times publisher Evan Hannah, an Australian citizen. Hannah was arrested yesterday and deported today, in defiance of a high court order. The Suva-based Fiji Times is the country’s leading daily.“Hannah’s arrest and expulsion are unacceptable and violate all the undertakings which the military government has given as regards respect for civil liberties and press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Coming just two months after the expulsion of Fiji Sun publisher Russell Hunter, it seems that the summary removal of government critics is becoming the norm in Fiji.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The government must stop its schizophrenic behaviour, consisting of recognising that press freedom is a constitutional right, on the one hand, while continuing to harass journalists, on the other. The prime minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama, who is quick to remind the media of their responsibilities, must guarantee their independence and respect for the rule of law.”Police and immigration officials arrested Hannah at his Suva home yesterday evening in the presence of his wife and one-year-old son. Later in the evening, his newspaper obtained a high court order for him to appear in court today, thereby blocking any possible deportation. As a result of the court order, Air Pacific refused to cooperate with an attempt by the authorities to put him on a flight to Sydney from Nadi international airport. But the authorities subsequently put him on a Korean Air flight to Seoul.The minister of defence, national security and immigration, Ratu Epeli Ganilau, said there was “credible evidence” that “Mr. Hannah’s actions were breaching national security.” He added: “Mr. Hannah was previously cautioned of the implications of his actions. He, however, chose to ignore this.”Speaking yesterday, two days before World Press Freedom Day, Prime Minister Bainimarama acknowledged that press freedom was guaranteed under Fiji’s constitution but he said “irresponsible” reporting in the past year had posed “a threat to national security.” Government and media needed to work together for “a better Fiji,” he added.Hannah is the second foreign journalist to be deported this year.
