Nor are open toes, dull leather or colours other than black. And don’t forget: “Change your shoes once a day. With ‘fresh’ shoes, you will feel better and improve your performance at work.”As for adding “personality” to your outfit with jewellery, here’s where you’re allowed to experiment! Within the colour scheme of the dress code, that is. As for wearing more than seven pieces of bling, it is strictly forbidden. (What is it with the number seven?)So what is the philosophy behind this solemn instructional document (aside from that of an 19th century finishing school)? Well, it stems from a belief that “individuals are judged primarily on their appearance” and that the right outfit imparts “the concepts of truth, clarity… stewardship, responsibility and integrity, conscientiousness, reliability and consistency, and respect of the highest professional standards”.The Capitalist is just waiting for the bank to roll it out across the investment banking division. Clarity and stewardship – surely that’d be a few hundred million in fees well spent?ALL IN THE FAMILYMany an executive has pondered the difficult question of how to stay in touch with the family while maintaining such a trying schedule. Luckily, it seems the Intercontinental Hotels Group’s chief financial officer Richard Solomons has found the solution: install an app on your iPhone that tracks the whereabouts of your wife and kids.OK, a little… unconventional, but, hey, how else are you going to defend your wife from stalkers?CHEWING COALWith Portuguese government ministers pleading with the population not to hoard sugar in anticipation of a shortage, and Pakistan and Egypt also running low, Societe Generale’s Dylan Grice used his regular “Popular Delusions” research note to talk down the idea of investing in commodities. Specifically, he argues: “Commodities for the long run? Not on your Nellie – I’d rather eat coal!!”You see, it’s just easier to avoid the heartbreak if you steer clear of ’em: “Prior commodity bull markets have been much like England football managers,” he writes. “They promised much, burned brightly for a while, but ultimately crashed, breaking the hearts of those who believed in them most.” Oh, Dylan. See, the rest of us just try not to take Fabio Capello too seriously. FRAYING CABLEWhoops! A rather hasty cut-away during last night’s Jeff Randall Live show on Sky gave a little glimpse of how business secretary Vince Cable gets through his busy days.

Stock market crash: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy right now

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended RELX and Rightmove. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Stock market crash: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy right now Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The recent FTSE 100 stock market crash suggests there are numerous cheap income and growth stocks currently available. These businesses might experience significant uncertainty in the short run. But many have the potential to deliver substantial recoveries and high total returns over the long term.As such, now could be a great time to snap up some of these bargains for the long run.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…FTSE 100 tech leaderSince the beginning of the year, FTSE 100 tech champion Rightmove (LSE: RMV) has recorded a 24% drop in its share price. It’s easy to see why investors are selling shares in the property portal. The coronavirus crisis has frozen the UK housing market. This is likely to place pressure on Rightmove’s near-term income.This may cause a further decline in the company’s shares. However, the UK property market is likely to recover over time. As the most significant player in the sector’s online marketplace, this suggests Rightmove’s long-term potential is attractive.The housing market has experienced many booms and busts over recent decades. The market has always recovered. The same is true of the FTSE 100. Therefore, while there could be further difficulties ahead for the sector, over the long run, activity in the property market should recover. Factors such as low interest rates, reduced supply, and schemes such as Help to Buy could also boost the industry over the coming years.With this being the case, now could be an excellent time to capitalise on the market’s short-term focus and buy shares in FTSE 100 champion Rightmove.Business diversificationCoronavirus is also having a significant impact on Relx (LSE: REL), the global provider of information-based analytics and decision tools. The group’s exhibition business, which accounted for 16% of revenues in 2019, has seen income evaporate.Still, the rest of the FTSE 100 business seems to be holding up well. Sales of the company’s risk analysis and legal operations, which accounted for 84% of revenues in 2019, expanded in Q1.Relx believes any downward trend is unlikely to last with the majority of its income subscription-based. That suggests the impact on the business should be limited.The FTSE 100 firm also is supporting the fight against Covid-19. It’s “mobilising” its scientific, technical and medical “research content, data analytics know-how, and clinical insight.” The company is working with the WHO, OSTP, NIH and the Wellcome Trust to help support the battle against the virus.This suggests that while the business might see a decline in near-term revenues, over the long run, it’s well placed to recover. Relx may even be able to improve on its competitive position as a result of the uncertain economic outlook.As such, with shares in the business down 12% from their 52-week high, now could be an excellent time to capitalise on the firm’s weak near-term outlook through buying its shares.

Las cuatro diócesis episcopales de la costa que pudieran resultar afectadas son Luisiana, Misisipi, Costa del Golfo Central y Florida.En Haití, los episcopales movilizaron esfuerzos para responder a los más necesitados después que Isaac pasó por la isla Española [que Haití comparte con la República Dominicana] el 24 de agosto, cobrando por lo menos las vidas de 12 personas y desplazando por lo menos a otras 40.000.A pesar de las pérdidas, Oge Beauvoir, obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Haití, quien está asentado en Cabo Haitiano, en la parte norte de la diócesis, escribió en un correo electrónico el 27 de agosto que Haití parecía haberse “librado” de lo peor de Isaac. “Dios ha oído vuestras oraciones… No hay demasiados daños, hasta ahora… Gracias a Dios por eso”.Antes de la tormenta, le habían pedido al clero diocesano que hiciera provisiones para ellos y, donde fuera posible, para sus feligreses. A los clérigos les recordaron que instaran a sus fieles que viven cerca de la costa o cerca de ríos a trasladarse tierra adentro y a quedarse con amigos, y que intentaran hacer lo más que pudieran para almacenar artículos de primera necesidad, tales como agua.Las oficinas de la Diócesis Episcopal de Florida Sudoriental [o del Sudeste] se mantuvieron cerradas el 27 de agosto como medida de precaución, porque algunas franjas externas de la tormenta seguían produciendo lluvias torrenciales y borrascas en la zona.Mary Cox, directora de comunicaciones de la diócesis de Florida Sudoriental, que también incluye los cayos de la Florida, dijo que no tenía conocimiento de ningún problema significativo en la región. “Nuestra mayor preocupación, por supuesto, es por las diócesis compañeras de Haití y la República Dominicana. Estoy segura de que organizaremos ayuda. Y, al igual que todo el mundo, estamos orando por nuestros prójimos de la costa del Golfo”, escribió ella en un correo electrónico al Servicio de prensa Episcopal (ENS).Cox dijo que la diócesis había tenido noticias de compañeros en la República Dominicana que dijeron que todos estaban bien, pero que se encontraban en labores de limpieza después de “montones y montones de lluvia”.El Centro Nacional de Huracanes, en un parte emitido a la 1 P.M. (hora de verano del Este) advirtió de marejadas peligrosas y de resacas que continuarían afectando la península y los cayos de la Florida aproximadamente durante el próximo día, y comenzarían a afectar la costa del Golfo más tarde en el día de hoy. También es posible la formación de algunos tornados aislados desde el centro de la Florida y a través de la zona nororiental de la costa del Golfo hoy y mañana, advertía el parte. Al presente se registraban vientos sostenidos con velocidad máxima de 104 kilómetros por hora, con vientos de fuerza de tormenta tropical que se extienden hasta 386 kilómetros del epicentro. Se espera oleajes de tormenta que pueden alcanzar hasta 3 metros a lo largo de algunas zonas costeras.Isaac, la novena tormenta de la temporada ciclónica del Atlántico en 2012, se desarrolló el 21 de agosto en las Antillas Menores.Mientras Isaac prosigue su rumbo hacia la costa del Golfo, Morris K. Thompson Jr., obispo de Luisiana, escribió a los líderes de la diócesis el 27 de agosto diciéndoles que si bien el pronóstico probablemente “trae consigo algo más que la ansiedad normal asociada con los huracanes, ya que viene en el aniversario del huracán Katrina, en ocasiones como ésta es importante que nos mantengamos firmes en nuestra fe y sabiendo que Dios sigue siendo Dios. De manera que, tal como a la gente le gusta decir, nos preparamos para lo peor y oramos por lo mejor”.Thompson resaltó la importancia de tomar precauciones ahora “para protegernos y proteger a los que están a nuestro cuidado. Debemos saber dónde van a estar en los próximos días los miembros de nuestra familia, nuestros amigos cercanos y (para los que tenemos posiciones de liderazgo en la Iglesia) nuestros feligreses, y ellos deben conocer nuestros planes”.Se han programado llamadas de conferencia para que el clero diocesano pueda evaluar las necesidades inmediatamente después que haya pasado la tormenta. Entre tanto, se ha creado una página web especial en el cibersitio diocesano donde puede aparecer información importante en los próximos días.En Misisipi,  la Rda. Carol Borne Spencer, coordinadora diocesana de preparación y respuesta ante desastres, no está descuidando nada.Spencer le comunicaba a los clérigos [de la diócesis], en un correo electrónico del 27 de agosto, que el equipo de trabajo diocesano de preparación para [enfrentar] el desastre está disponible para ofrecer ayuda cuando se necesite, y les recordaba que se remitieran a un folleto sobre preparación para desastres que se le había proporcionado a cada congregación de Misisipi.“Sé que esto es ‘viejo’ para algunos de ustedes que han pasado por este entrenamiento antes”, dijo Spencer, pero “preferiría equivocarme por exceso de precaución. Oro porque cada uno de ustedes se equivoque también por exceso de preparación”.Spencer, coordinadora de servicio comunitario y misión en la catedral de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s] en Jackson, también les pidió a los clérigos que mantuvieran informado al obispo de Misisipi, Duncan Gray III, “de su situación, personal y congregacional, después que pase la tormenta… Por favor, no se olviden de supervisar a los miembros más vulnerables [de vuestras congregaciones], que pueden no contar con otros que los ayuden a prepararse… Oro por la seguridad de todos”.El Rdo. Scott Lenoir, editor de The Mississippi Episcopalian y sacerdote auxiliar en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s], en Ocean Springs, dijo a ENS que estará en “pleno espíritu de preparación como todos los demás” en la diócesis. Dijo que su iglesia permanecería abierta el martes por la noche y el miércoles por la mañana, cuando se espera que la tormenta toque tierra, ya que varios feligreses viven en zonas propensas a inundarse y su iglesia se encuentra en un terreno más elevado.Lenoir, que es copresidente del equipo de trabajo diocesano de preparación para desastres, dijo que durante los últimos 12 meses el equipo ha reunido un detallado banco de datos que puede usarse como una herramienta de socorro en el caso de una crisis. El equipo también se ha reunido con todas las convocaciones (grupos de parroquias) de la diócesis en el empeño de instruir, preparar y hacer acopio de información sobre recursos.Aunque la Diócesis de Alabama —que está localizada bastante tierra adentro y se extiende desde Montgomery al norte hasta la frontera de Tennessee— probablemente no sufrirá el embate de la tormenta, está en disposición de prestar ayuda a las diócesis costeras si llegara a ser necesario, dijo a ENS Dave Drachlis, Coordinador de Comunicaciones.Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales se mantiene en contacto regular con sus aliados en las diócesis afectadas y está en disposición de ofrecer apoyo y asistencia.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero del Servicio de Prensa Episcopal.

Springboks training snippet gives glimpse into the art of stealing ball at the breakdown

first_imgThursday Jul 25, 2019 Springboks training snippet gives glimpse into the art of stealing ball at the breakdown Wellington is officially sold out as the All Blacks and Springboks get set to face off at the venue the visitors won at last year. Ahead of the match, we get to see a behind the scenes look at some of the break down training they have been working on.ADVERTISEMENTAfter a strong 35-17 win over Australia in Johannesburg, the Springboks have made wholesale changes to their starting fifteen, opting for a two squad approach (see team sheets below video).That means Kwagga Smith is one of those brought in to start against the World Champions, and he, along with Malcolm Marx, will be targeting the breakdown as an area to assert their dominance.Both players can be seen here in this excellent breakdown training video from Supersport, as they work through a ball stealing drill and impart their knowledge on their teammates, which include centres Lukhanyo Am and Jesse Kriel.Smith shows how hard players need to work to retrieve the ball, under pressure from the opposition (Franco Mostert) and with the ball tied up under bodies.New Zealand15 Beauden Barrett; 14 Ben Smith, 13 Jack Goodhue, 12 Sonny Bill Williams, 11 Rieko Ioane; 10 Richie Mo’unga, 9 TJ Perenara; 8 Kieran Read (captain), 7 Matt Todd, 6 Shannon Frizell; 5 Sam Whitelock, 4 Brodie Retallick; 3 Owen Franks, 2 Codie Taylor, 1 Joe Moody.Substitutes: 16 Dane Coles, 17 Ofa Tu’ungafasi, 18 Angus Ta’avao, 19 Vaea Fifita, 20 Dalton Papalii, 21 Aaron Smith, 22 Anton Lienert-Brown, 23 George BridgeSouth Africa15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cheslin Kolbe, 13 Lukhanyo Am, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Handre Pollard, 9 Faf de Klerk, 8 Duane Vermeulen (captain), 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Kwagga Smith, 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Steven KitshoffSubstitutes: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Tendai Mtawarira, 18 Trevor Nyakane, 19 RG Snyman, 20 Francois Louw, 21 Herschel Jantjies, 22 Frans Steyn, 23 Jesse Kriel 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.

August charity direct debit cancellations at record high

first_img Howard Lake | 8 September 2011 | News Direct debit specialists Rapidata Services plc report that the cancellation rate for direct debit regular donations to its charity clients in August was 4.58%, the highest figure for that month since it began tracking regular giving trends eight years ago in 2003. The figure is worse than the 4.4% that was recorded in August 2008 as the recession bit.Scott Gray, Managing Director at Rapidata Services Plc, was alarmed by the finding. He said: “I am deeply concerned to see charity Direct Debit cancellations increasing again to recession levels and higher. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the rate exceed 5% in September with the trend continuing. Charities need to know about this shift and they need to act.”This is the fourth consecutive month in which direct debit donation cancellations have increased. Gray had hoped that this was a temporary situation. However, Gray concludes: “it is becoming clear that the trend has shifted once more with our figures reflecting the recent sharp economic downturn and threat of double-dip recession. Consumers are tightening their personal finances still further under uncertain economic conditions that are unlikely to improve very quickly.”Gray advised charities to take action to try to minimise cancellations. “Now is the time to be as proactive with donors as possible” he said. “If you are stalling a stewardship programme or have communications, appeals or campaigns on hold, it’s time to act.”He invited charities that had experienced marked changes in regular donation cancellations over the past few months to contact Rapidata with their experiences.Cancellation rates across the calendar year of 2010 were significantly lower than those seen in 2009 (which averaged 4.05%), reaching pre-recession levels, with an average for the year of 3.32%. For the last four months of 2011 rates have followed the shape of the annual cancellation cycle but at a full percentage point higher than this time last year.The Rapidata Charity Direct Debit Tracking Report 2011 is available as a free download About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Court upholds three-year sentences for journalists who photographed new capital

first_imgNews June 27, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court upholds three-year sentences for journalists who photographed new capital May 26, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Myanmar ———————-30.03.2006Three-year sentences for two journalists who took pictures of new capitalReporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association voiced outrage today at the three-year prison sentences imposed on journalists U Thaung Sein and Ko Moe Htun for photographing and filming in the new capital, Pyinmana, and thereby allegedly violating article 32 (A) of the Television and Video Act.”It is a disgrace to see journalists arrested and sentenced just for taking pictures on the streets of Pyinmana,” the two organisations said. “This new evidence of paranoia by the military regime jeopardises the possibility of the Burmese and international press working in the new capital. We call for their release.”Also known as Thar Cho, U Thaung Sein, 52, is a photojournalist for several Burmese publications. Ko Moe Htun, 42, who is also known as Ko Kyaw Thwin, is a columnist for the religious magazine Dhamah-Yate (The Shadow of Dhamah).They were arrested on 23 March while driving around Pyinmana, filming and taking photos. They received their three-year sentences the following day when they appeared before judge Daw Mi Mi Maw of the Yamaethin district court.Their lawyer, U Khin Maung Zaw, announced his intention to appeal. “They should be freed because the Television and Video Act does not forbid taking pictures in authorized areas and states that such pictures may be used for private purposes,” he said. His clients were just using a small amateur camera, he added.As far as Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association know, this is the first time that Burmese citizens have been given the maximum three-year sentence envisaged under the Television and Video Act, which was adopted in July 1996.U Thaung Sein and Ko Moe Htun are currently being held in the Yamaethin district prison north of Pyinmana. RSF_en MyanmarAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information News May 31, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association today condemned the Mandalay regional court’s decision on appeal to uphold three-year prison sentences for photojournalist U Thaung Sein (also known as U Thar Cho) and columnist Ko Moe Thun (also known as Ko Kyaw Thwin), who writes for the religious magazine Dhamah-Yate (Dhamah’s Shadow). The court issued its ruling on 21 June without hearing any witnesses.“These long prison sentences for two journalists who just took photos of the new capital, Pyinmana, show how dysfunctional the Burmese judicial system is,” the two organisations said. “We call for their release and the release of the nine other journalists imprisoned in Burma.”The sentences were imposed in March by a court in Yamaethin, which found them guilty of violating article 32 (A) of the Television and Video Act for taking still photographs and video footage of Pyinmana.Their lawyer U Khin Maung Zaw initially appealed to the Yamaethin district court in April.

Mario Hernandez was recognized as a Pasadena Rotary Teacher of Excellence earlier this month.Despite a year in which he hasn’t seen any of his students in person for more than three months, Muir Early College Magnet’s Business and Entrepreneurship Academy teacher Mario Hernandez was one of five awardees for this year’s Pasadena Rotary Teacher of Excellence Award. Like most awardees of any stripe, Hernandez—an Honors Math teacher who has worked 26 years in the PUSD—credits his Muir team for the recognition.As Hernandez told Pasadena Now, “Collaborating with my colleagues makes me a stronger teacher. We challenge each other, we encourage each other, we teach each other, and above all – we support each other. For that, I am grateful to my Mustang family.”Again, Hernandez sees the honor as one not to himself, but to his school.“I think we’re doing some great things at our school,” he said, “and I want people to realize that Muir is thriving. We’re a small school that provides that human connection. We tend to know our kids very well because of our small school setting, and I think this award goes a long way toward letting people know that there’s some great teaching going on at Muir.”Hernandez, who was nominated by Muir Principal Dr. Lawton Gray, was one of over 30 candidates for the award.Candidates completed three essays of questions on classroom management, classroom instruction, as well as collaboration.In most years, ten semifinalists and then five finalists are chosen, and from them, one “Teacher of the Year” is then selected. This is after a series of interviews and classroom visits.Due to school closures during the Coronavirus pandemic, all five of the finalists—Hernandez, Eric Gothold, Rose City High School; Marysia Narvaez, Marshall Fundamental School; John Newell, Jackson Stem Dual Language Magnet Academy; and Lauren Partma, William McKinley School of the Arts—were all chosen teacher of the year.Teachers of Excellence Co-chairs, Del Lile, a Pasadena Educational Foundation board member, and Lisa Cavelier, CEO, Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena, coordinated this year’s awards ceremony, which naturally took place via Zoom, on June 10.All PUSD schools were invited to nominate teachers and a selection committee of principals, UTP, parents, previous winners, and Rotarians reviewed the entries. With funding from the Pasadena Rotary Foundation, $1,500 awards were given each year to the five teachers, along with $500, which was presented to each recipient’s school.For his part, Hernandez is quick to acknowledge the difficulties of remote teaching.It was difficult at the beginning,” he said. “But as teachers, we are very resilient, though we had to learn on the fly.”Hernandez said the challenge of remote teaching gave him the chance to “really analyze the way I deliver my instruction. Some of the things that I’ve done differently, like recording lessons for students, are things that I’m going to do from now on, even after we return to in-person classes.”Hernandez expressed gratitude for the recognition to the Pasadena Rotary Club, his family, Principal Dr. Lawton Gray, and his colleagues, and of course his students at Muir.“I want to thank my students, past and present. It’s true that they are the reason I do what I do with passion and conviction. They inspire me, they make me laugh, they make me feel challenged, but most importantly, they give me a feeling of youthful hope. I see in them – what our future can be and it reminds me that great things lie ahead. It is my responsibility, and my privilege, to help them make that future a reality. And for that, I am deeply grateful to them.”Mario Hernandez is the tenth of fourteen children. He emigrated from Mexico at the age of seven to the city of Oxnard, California. Growing up, Mario always knew that he wanted to attend college; however, in high school he was advised that he was better suited for the workforce. It was this experience that made him resolve to go to college and to make sure that other students, like himself, had role models and supporters to make their own college dreams come true. In 1994, Mario graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara, becoming the first in his family to receive a degree. He later received his M.A. in Educational Administration from CSULA.
