Co-op hits out at Cameron’s austerity talk

first_img KCS-content whatsapp THE Co-operative Group blasted the government for damaging consumer confidence with talk of an “age of austerity” yesterday, despite revealing an 18 per cent rise in profits.Britain’s largest mutual retailer said it had beaten tough conditions to grow in the first half of the year but predicted a gloomy trading environment until at least the end of 2011.Chief executive Peter Marks told City A.M.: “Are we going to be helped by the general economy any time soon? No – how can you be because the government is telling us about an age of austerity.”Marks said negative language from politicians was “absolutely” affecting sentiment on the high street. He added: “If you talk loudly enough and long enough about something, people start believing it. However, it is clear the government needed to tackle the deficit. Everybody knows we were living beyond our means.”Marks’ comments are likely to hit home with Prime Minister David Cameron. Earlier this year, Cameron re-launched an initiative urging school and hospital workers to replicate co-operative structures in a bid to improve public services. Chancellor George Osborne has praised mutuals as a way of letting people “take ownership of their own enterprise”.Marks’ broadside came as the Co-op said its purchase of Somerfield helped push group turnover up eight per cent to £6.9bn in the six months to 3 July. The business, whose activities span food retailing, financial services, travel and funeral parlour operations, said profit before payments to members fell 31 per cent to £169m. But after one-off items it rose 17.6 per cent to £260m.Co-operative Financial Services, which merged with the Britannia last year, picked up a stream of customers disillusioned with bigger-name banks. Its operating results rose by more than a third to £109.3m and savers’ deposits grew to £1.4bn.

Bloomsbury’s share price soars to 15-year highs as sales boom! Here’s what I’d do now Image source: Getty Images. center_img Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Bloomsbury Publishing. 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. Covid-19 lockdowns have helped light a fire under trade at Bloomsbury Publishing (LSE: BMY) over the past year. The UK share has risen 58% in value during the past 12 months as favourites like Harry Potter have flown off the (often online) shelves. Indeed, Bloomsbury rose to fresh 15-year highs around 342p per share today following the release of more bubbly trading news.In the financial year to February, Bloomsbury saw revenues rocket 14% to a record £185.1m. It’s a result which smashed the 2% increase which the Publishers’ Association says the broader book market grew by in 2020.5G 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…As a consequence, pre-tax profits at the publisher soared 31% year-on-year to £17.3m. Bloomsbury also reported a large upswing in net cash on the balance sheet, which rose to £54.5m from £31.3m in fiscal 2020.Bloomsbury therefore raised the final dividend 10% year-on-year to 7.58p per share. This took the total full-year payout to 8.86p, an 8% increase. The company also proposed to pay a 9.78p special dividend for fiscal 2021.What Bloomsbury said“These results are ahead of expectations and represent our third upgrade this year,” commented Bloomsbury chief executive Nigel Newton. He added that fiscal 2021’s robust numbers “demonstrate the strength and resilience of our strategy of publishing for both the general and academic market.”What’s more, Newton indicated that the books giant has got the current fiscal year off to a flyer. He added: “The ongoing momentum and strength of our business” means that the company “expects revenue to be ahead and profit to be comfortably ahead of market expectations.”Strength across the boardAt its Consumer division, sales and profit before tax and exceptional items rose 22% in the last financial year, Bloomsbury said. Highlighting the reasons for its success, the company said that “our diverse consumer portfolio included backlist titles which really struck a chord with readers throughout the pandemic on themes such as humanity, social inclusion, escapism, fantasy, cookery and baking.”Adult sales at its Consumer unit rose 17% year-on-year to £43.7m, Bloomsbury said, while revenues from its Children’s books soared 26% on fiscal 2020 to £74.6m.Meanwhile, the publisher’s Bloomsbury Digital Resources (or BDR) division enjoyed a 49% revenues uplift in the period. It said that “our academic digital growth also significantly outperformed the UK market” in a year in which Covid-19 restrictions forced students online and away from the classroom.Why I’d buy BloomsburyThere’s a lot to like about Bloomsbury Publishing, in my opinion. Of course there are many publishers trying to get us to fill our bookshelves with their products. And that poses a threat to future profits, of course. But this particular UK share has a packed stable of popular titles and franchises which continue to deliver the goods.Sales of Harry Potter books, for instance, rose 7% last year. I also like the company’s attempts to embrace the structural shift to online learning through its BDR division. I’d happily buy Bloomsbury shares for my Stocks and Shares ISA today.

How to boss the breakdown – by Lachlan Boshier

first_img How to boss the breakdown – by Lachlan BoshierChiefs back-row Lachlan Boshier demonstrated how effective he is at winning turnover ball during Super Rugby in 2020 and here he offers his top tips on bossing the breakdown…Anticipate“Is there time and space to get on the ball? That’s what I make my decision around. It’s about anticipating how the tackle unfolds.“If the cleaners are right there, it’s harder to get in over the ball. It’s also about how the ball-carrier falls. If it’s a dominant tackle, it can be harder as there might be bodies in the way; your team-mates might be on top of him. Those things are all a factor.”Find your stance“Everyone is different and has a different body position that is strong for them. For me, a wide base support and being as low as possible works; I get my hips low so someone coming through can’t get under me.“It’s about taking little things from other people and finding what works best for you, what’s comfortable for you.” Read the ref“Every ref has different interpretations so it’s knowing what they’re looking for. For example, at the start of Super Rugby Aotearoa, a couple of pulls and people were rewarded.“You get a fair idea in the first 20 from what your team and the other team are doing and how the ref sees it. If there are a few penalties early on for not supporting your bodyweight or the jackler is penalised, I’d leave it for a little bit. You get a feel for it during games.”Train for games“In training you can either strip it back or make it as game-like as possible. We try to make it realistic.“We might take out the collision but have a ball-carrier tackled, the second man arriving and getting in a strong position, then one or two people cleaning out. It’s working on the technique.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The Chiefs back-row showed his turnover skills in Super Rugby – here are his tipscenter_img This article originally appeared in the October 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The declaration is available in Spanish here.Dear People of the Dioceses of Massachusetts and Western Massachusetts,With the advent of spring, our thoughts turn with renewed gratitude to the great gift of God’s creation. “For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.” (Song of Solomon 2:11-12)Our thoughts turn also to the devastation of that created order which continues to unfold around us. With the prophet we ask, “How long will the land mourn, and the grass of every field wither? For the wickedness of those who live in it the animals and the birds are swept away.” (Jeremiah 12:4)Each year on Ash Wednesday we offer the Litany of Penitence, decrying “our self-indulgent appetites and ways, … our waste and pollution of (God’s) creation, and our lack of concern for those who come after us.” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 268) In our stewardship of God’s creation, we are thus called into the fullness of gratitude, repentance, and amendment of our lives.What follows is a Declaration of Climate Emergency by your bishops. We urge you to read it thoroughly, thoughtfully, and prayerfully, receiving it as both challenge and invitation, and responding with commitment, in the power of the Holy Spirit.Faithfully,The Rt. Rev. Douglas J. Fisher, Bishop Diocesan, Diocese of Western MassachusettsThe Rt. Rev. Alan M. Gates, Bishop Diocesan, Diocese of MassachusettsThe Rt. Rev. Gayle E. Harris, Bishop Suffragan, Diocese of MassachusettsDeclaration of Climate EmergencyWe, the bishops of the Episcopal dioceses in Massachusetts, declare a climate emergency.We honor the call of our church’s presiding bishop, the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, to care for God’s beloved world. We recognize that accelerating global warming and mass extinctions are destroying God’s creation, threatening to make our planet uninhabitable. We likewise recognize that the climate crisis affects low-income communities and communities of color first and hardest. We confess that we, and our churches, have not yet responded with adequate seriousness or urgency to the ongoing, intensifying effects of climate change, and to its underlying causes.According to Scripture, God created the physical world and all its creatures as inherently “good” (Genesis 1). The very first task that God entrusted to human beings was responsibility to care for the earth (Genesis 2:15). As Christians, we honor the goodness and sacredness of the created world, recognizing that the earth does not belong to us, but to God (Psalm 24:1). The scope of God’s love embraces not only humanity but also the rest of creation (Genesis 9:8-17), and we recognize that Jesus gave his life for the whole world, so that all things could be reconciled (Colossians 1:15-20; Ephesians 1:10; 2 Corinthians 2:19). As Archbishop Desmond Tutu has said, the “supreme work” of Jesus Christ is to reconcile us to God, each other, and all of God’s creation.As a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, The Episcopal Church upholds the Five Marks of Mission as our understanding of God’s mission. The fifth mark establishes as an essential dimension of Christian mission and ethics the commitment “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and [to] sustain and renew the life of the earth.” Because caring for God’s creation is central to our moral and spiritual concern, General Convention, the church’s triennial legislative governing body, has adopted scores of resolutions addressing the environment, environmental justice, and climate change. At the 79th General Convention in 2018, 19 resolutions that relate to care for God’s creation were adopted. One of them (2018-A018) adopted The House of Bishops’ 2011 Pastoral Teaching on the Environment as an official position of our church, a document that urges every Episcopalian “to acknowledge the urgency of the planetary crisis in which we find ourselves.” In 2019, the Anglican Consultative Council recognized a global climate emergency, and the General Synod of the Church of England recognized a climate emergency in 2020.Other denominations are also responding. Pope Francis declared a climate emergency in 2019. The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I has spoken repeatedly about the ecological crisis. The Methodist Conference (UK) recognized a climate emergency in 2019.Standing with our siblings in Christ, including St. Paul, we hear the groaning of creation as it waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God (Romans 8:19-23). We believe that God is calling us all to embrace brave and difficult change. Everything we do as faithful individuals and as a church must reckon with the unprecedented emergency in which humanity now finds itself.We therefore encourage all Episcopalians to explore The Episcopal Church’s Covenant for the Care of Creation, a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy, and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries, and dioceses.We strongly urge congregations across Massachusetts to pray, learn, act, and advocate as we build a bold and faith-filled response to the greatest moral challenge of our time. We urge members of our two dioceses to explore the resources of both dioceses, including the Creation Care Justice Network in the Diocese of Massachusetts, and in Western Massachusetts, resources in all four areas of engagement. Sign up for the monthly Creation Care Network e-newsletter produced by the Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, who is assisting both dioceses in developing a robust response to the climate emergency, and for monthly e-mail updates from the Creation Care Justice Network in the Diocese of Massachusetts.Reflecting the four areas of engagement, we urge members of our two dioceses to:Pray• We ask all preachers in our dioceses, lay and ordained, to take up the mantle of moral leadership and preach regularly about our moral obligation to protect God’s creation.• We encourage use of the Liturgical Materials for Honoring God in Creation, from our church’s Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music. Our worship services should regularly include prayers that lift up the urgent needs of God’s creation (e.g., to keep fossil fuels in the ground; to protect and restore forests), and prayers for our own transformation (e.g., repentance for the role humans have played in creating, denying, and accelerating the emergency).• We encourage observance of the Season of Creation (Sept. 1 to Oct. 4) as a time for renewing, repairing, and restoring our relationship to God, one another, and all of creation.• We encourage outdoor services (which might be ecumenical or interfaith) that express reverence for God’s creation, lament and repentance for humanity’s assault on Earth, and renewed resolve to protect the web of life entrusted to our care.• We encourage retreats and educational events that teach emotional and spiritual resilience, including ways of prayer that quiet our minds, calm our nerves, steel our spines, and open our hearts to the still, small voice of God.Learn• We encourage deaneries and congregations to convene conversations and educational events around such topics as: how tackling the climate crisis connects with efforts to alleviate poverty, fight racial and social injustice, and defend human life; how eco-theology and eco-spirituality can guide us in the days ahead; how to cultivate the values and practices that liberate us from the consumerism, hyper-individualism, and violence of the dominant culture.• We encourage everyone to read and reflect on the 2011 House of Bishops Pastoral Teaching on the Environment, which was adopted at the 79th General Convention in 2018 as an official teaching.Act• We urge high-consuming people to cut back sharply on their use of fossil fuels and to support each other in changing their patterns of consumption and waste. We commend the carbon tracker, Sustaining Earth, Our Island Home, as a free educational tool for cutting carbon use in our households. We urge houses of worship to work with Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light to complete energy audits and implement the findings.• We welcome the Good News Gardens movement – a Gospel-centered initiative to grow and share food – into our dioceses. We likewise support efforts to restore ecosystems, soil, habitat, and biodiversity – such as making space for wildlife near our homes, a practice that has been called “reconciliation ecology.”• We encourage congregations to identify and find ways to assist those in our communities who are most vulnerable to climate disasters. We encourage working with Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) to make our churches “resilience hubs.”• We further encourage collaborations between diocesan groups at work on interrelated justice concerns, such as racial justice, food security, and creation care, among others. Episcopal City Mission’s Justice Network brings together Episcopalians and grassroots and faith-rooted leaders for monthly conversations around opportunities to act, both collectively and individually.Advocate• Because the scale and pace of the climate crisis require systemic change, we urge members of our two dioceses to become informed about – and participate in – local, statewide, and national efforts to make a swift and just transition to clean, renewable energy and to support vulnerable communities. We encourage learning about and joining the advocacy efforts of such groups as Massachusetts Interfaith Power & Light, 350MA for a Better Future, and Climate Action Now in Western Massachusetts, as well as creation care initiatives of the Episcopal Public Policy Network, the ecumenical Creation Justice Ministries, and environmental groups.• We also urge connecting with local organizers in environmental justice communities and supporting their priorities and efforts in appropriate ways. In our advocacy work, we have the opportunity draw upon our faith to make a prayerful and prophetic public witness for creation and its most vulnerable people and creatures, to envision a new world, and to call upon the God of life and resurrection to assist us.Our efforts to revive God’s creation, to build a just and sustainable society, and to restore a safe climate will require communication and collaboration. We encourage everyone to sign up for the monthly Creation Care Network e-newsletter and Creation Care Justice Network e-mails referenced above, and again commend engagement with our respective online diocesan resources in the western and eastern dioceses.We give thanks to the God who makes all things new (Isaiah 43:18-19; Isaiah 65:17; Rev. 21:5) and who came among us to bring us life, and life abundant (John 10:10).

A bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde has directed: No prisoner shall be released if he/she has suffered from coronavirus disease in communicable form hereafter. For this purpose, appropriate tests will be carried out.If it is found that a prisoner who has been released is suffering from coronavirus after the release, necessary steps will be taken by the concerned authority by placing him/her in appropriate quarantine facility.Transportation shall be done in full compliance of the Rules and Norms of social distancing. For instance, no transportation shall be allowed in excess of half or one fourth capacity of the bus as may be found appropriate to ensure that the passengers who have been found to be free of coronavirus disease are at a distance from each other.The order dated 23.03.2020 shall be applicable to correctional homes, detention centres and protection homes. The directions have been issued in the face of submissions made by Attorney General KK Venugopalthat the release and transportation of the prisoners may itself result in transmission of coronavirus from prisons or detention centres to locations where the released prisoners have to reach. The bench, also comprising of Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice Mohan M. Shantanagoudar has also made it clear that its order for release of prisoners is not mandatory and every state must take a decision on the basis of prison conditions. “We make it clear that we have not directed the States/ Union Territories to compulsorily release the prisoners from their respective prisons. The purpose of our aforesaid order was to ensure the States/Union Territories to assess the situation in their prisons having regard to the outbreak of the present pandemic in the country and release certain prisoners and for that purpose to determine the category of prisoners to be released,” the order states. Notably, the State of Bihar has not found it appropriate to release the prisoners for complete absence of any patient suffering from coronavirus within the prisons and also for the reason that the prisons are not overcrowded.
