At the beginning of 2020, shares in the travel and leisure company were changing hands at around 1,700p. However, in March, the value of the company plunged as the sheer scale of the coronavirus outbreak became clear. The stock dropped to a low of 300p at the height of the crisis. It’s clear why investor sentiment towards the Dart Group share price collapsed in March. The group owns one of the biggest package travel businesses in the country, Jet2holidays. As of yet, it’s unclear what the final impact on this business will be as a result of the pandemic. 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…Nonetheless, despite the company’s uncertain outlook in the near term, investors with a long-term outlook may profit from buying the Dart Group share price. Dart Group share price on offer The year started well for Dart. The company’s latest trading update showed an increase in overall profit before tax of 50% for the year ended March. That was before one-off charges and even though Jet2.com had to suspend its flying programme in mid-March due to the travel restrictions imposed by governments across Europe.Following these travel restrictions, analysts are now forecasting a significant loss for the group in its current financial year. However, Dart looks set to return to growth in the following year. That could be a big positive for the Dart Group share price. Management has been doing everything possible to maintain customer loyalty in the pandemic. Jet2 has been praised for its refund policy and customer service. That’s in comparison to other companies, which have been slow to refund customers.This should help the company stage a recovery in the months ahead. The coronavirus crisis isn’t going to stop people going on holiday in the long term. And by putting customer service first and foremost, the firm has helped build an excellent reputation for itself in the industry. That may be a huge positive for the Dart Group share price. Bright outlook The coronavirus crisis hasn’t gone away just yet so, clearly, Dart’s near-term outlook is uncertain. Still, over the long term, the company’s size and reputation with customers could help it return to growth when the European holiday industry starts to recover.It may be some time before the business returns to the rates of growth seen before the crisis, but it already has the infrastructure in place to manage large numbers of customers. It can also offer a relatively low cost compared to peers. That should help the group capture market share, which is especially important in a weak market. As such, now could be a good time to snap up the Dart Group share price as part of a diversified portfolio. Doing so could help you benefit from the company’s recovery over the next few years as it uses its position in the UK leisure market to capture market share. This may lead to higher profits and large total returns for investors in the years ahead.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

El Camino Real bishop announces plan to resign in 2020

first_imgEl Camino Real bishop announces plan to resign in 2020 Rector Knoxville, TN Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit an Event Listing [Episcopal News Service] Diocese of El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves recently called for the election of her successor, and announced that she will be resigning in early 2020. That will be her 13th year of her episcopate. The text of her letter to the diocese follows.A message from Bishop MaryDear friends,I write today to share with you my decision to begin the process of electing the next bishop of the Diocese of El Camino Real. Many of you became aware last year that I was praying and discerning the timing of my departure as your diocesan bishop. I spoke with both the Board of Trustees and the Standing Committee at that time, recommending that we begin budgeting for the transition process. The transition of a bishop takes time, money and oversight. A search process is necessary. It includes full diocesan participation about the identity of the diocese, a review of its history, what has been accomplished during our tenure, and what the hopes and dreams are for the future. This work is essential to a healthy discernment process that results in the fruitful calling of our next bishop.While a date for an electing convention is not yet set, the ordination and consecration of the next bishop will be held January 11, 2020. At that service the transition from my episcopate to that of our new bishop will take place. In other words, I will remain your bishop, working as I have, until that day. I will be in the 13th year of my episcopate at that time.The Canons of the Episcopal Church and our diocesan canons will govern the process of the transition and election of the new diocesan bishop. The process will be overseen by our Standing Committee, assisted by the Office of Pastoral Development and a search consultant. This morning The Right Reverend Todd Ousley joined the Board of Trustees, the Standing Committee, myself and the staff so that we could be fully oriented to the process, to our respective roles during the time of transition and to express our own needs moving forward. The Standing Committee will soon communicate with you their next steps in appointing a Search Committee and the anticipated timeline.Meanwhile, I am going to continue working as I have been, focusing on our Strategic Plan remix alongside diocesan leaders and staff. It will be important that I not involve myself in the search process, but continue to keep our diocese moving forward in the positive direction that has allowed us to accomplish so much in these years of ministry together.Many will wonder what I am doing after my tenure here is completed. The answer is that I do not yet know. I will not run for election in another diocese. Personal considerations include needing more flexibility in my schedule, regaining balance in my personal life. The work of a diocesan bishop is demanding, and the Diocese of El Camino Real is no ordinary place! A leader who will harness the considerable energy, gifts and spiritual depth of this diocese will be needed to engage the Spirit’s call on our church and the ministry we share with our neighborhood partners. Our transition will be orderly and in the best interest of the church. Fresh energy will allow us not to miss a beat as we seek to live out God’s calling as a diocese.Please join me in prayer, trusting in the grace of God who holds all life and calls us to exciting and fruitful opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ. May we be courageous as we are enlightened, faithful as our wisdom is deepened, and true to our following of Jesus whose path leads us into all life.I love you and I am deeply honored to continue serving as your bishop in the nearly two years before us. I will treasure this time of transition, knowing that God has yet more wonderful life ahead for us all.Blessings of grace and peace,+Mary Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Director of Music Morristown, NJ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Submit a Press Release Rector Collierville, TN Rector Shreveport, LA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Smithfield, NC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Featured Jobs & Calls Submit a Job Listing Press Release Service Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Fans show fears over increase in simulation in rugby after exaggerated Tadhg Beirne dive

first_imgTuesday Apr 2, 2019 Fans show fears over increase in simulation in rugby after exaggerated Tadhg Beirne dive The weekend’s rugby provided a lot of topics for debate, none more so that Munster’s winner against Edinburgh at Murrayfield. The European giants had a penalty against them reversed, after Edinburgh prop Pierre Schoeman made contact with Tadhg Beirne off the ball.ADVERTISEMENTFrom what could have been a chance for Richard Cockerill’s side to extend their lead, Munster took advantage, and Keith Earls eventually scored the match-winning try.However, Beirne’s theatrics have come under some heavy criticism in the wake of the game on social media, as the Irish second-row seemed to go down with minimal contact. Worse still, he remained down, drawing attention to what had happened, and went on to finish the game.As expected, many fans and players were disappointed by these antics, as David Flatman even called for the lock to apologise.Fans have shown their support for what Flatman said, as diving is becoming more commonplace in rugby. This is what the fans have been saying:ADVERTISEMENTA fair comment. We don’t want that nonsense in rugby.— Ian Titherington (@ianapharri) April 1, 2019ADVERTISEMENTEmbarrassing , oscar worthy dive by @longdogbeirne . Should be banned for the semi-final .— Billy Denham 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (@billywhizz14) April 1, 2019I agree, the last thing we need is diving in rugby. I don’t agree with what he did, I’m just interested to know, is it a penalty if he blocks him by Beirne stays on his feet?— Eoin Sheedy (@_Sheedy_) April 1, 2019Sean O’Brien did a similar thing in the 6 Nations. Rugby is becoming like football when it comes to diving to milk penalties and needs to be stamped out early— Gareth Rees (@garethrees9) April 1, 2019Excellent analysis on it although I think your pulling your punches, we all hate diving in football and we need to call it out and expect it to be dealt with in rugby.— Stewart Pavitt (@StewartPavitt) March 31, 2019Of course, not many people are arguing that this was not a penalty, as after all, this was a needless and unwarranted dig by Schoeman off the ball. However, while many fans will oppose what Schoeman did, many more will have a problem with Beirne’s antics to milk a penalty.If rugby players are going to start diving like footballers, the sports ruined.— Steve Alexander (@AngusRunner81) March 30, 2019That is what makes this a peculiar circumstance, as the referee was right to award Munster a penalty, but equally Beirne should be admonished for what he did.“If he’s your team-mate, you go ‘thanks for milking us the penalty’ and if you are looking from outside you go ‘come on, get up’ and in the words of Nigel Owens, ‘this isn’t soccer, lads’,” said Brian O’Driscoll on Monday’s Off The Ball.Rugby has always seemed to pride itself as being immune from acts of cheating like this, but it is undeniable that it is becoming more and more prominent, particularly with the availability of the TMO. Obviously, football receives a fair amount of criticism for the frequency of diving, and many will be desperate to prevent rugby going down the same road.https://twitter.com/totallyewesome/status/1112054520459202560Tadhg Beirne pic.twitter.com/GWR8ydw1w8— Andrew White (@APLWhite) March 30, 2019 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.

Working class democracy and centralism

first_imgPainting shows V. I. Lenin speaking to soldiers and civilians.We are taught in school that the United States is a democracy, but this claim is completely divorced from the reality of class struggle. The wealthy ruling class, which owns the greater proportion of our economy through the stock market and banking system, has complete ownership of our electoral process as well. They fund political campaigns, finance an army of Washington, D.C., lobbyists and hand out lucrative industry jobs to their most faithful political servants. The politicians we elect are merely the servants of capital, who will never do anything to harm the interests of their masters. The members of the ruling class themselves are never on the ballot. This is not a democracy — it’s a dictatorship of the rich.True democracy would reflect the popular will of the masses, the bulk of them belonging to the working class. Socialist revolutions aim to take control of the means of production — the levers which control the economy — and in so doing, establish rule by the working class.There’s no better example of true working-class democracy than the constitutional referendum held by the Republic of Cuba in 2019. In looking to update the constitution, the Cuban government solicited the opinions of most of the population — 11.2 million people as of 2018 — and allowed them to author amendments themselves. Nearly 9 million people attended over 100,000 meetings islandwide, making 783,174 proposals to the constitution. (Granma, Nov. 27, 2018)Can you imagine such a referendum taking place in the U.S.? But how to achieve a socialist revolution? How can the working class establish the kind of working-class democracy enjoyed by the Cuban people? V.I. Lenin wrote in his 1906 report on the Unity Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party that a revolutionary socialist organization should conduct itself in accordance with its principles. He argued that revolutionary socialists should practice “democratic centralism.” Democratic centralism is how revolutionary socialist organizations engage in working-class democracy in a revolutionary context. Drawing on the collective strength and wisdom of the membership, democratic centralism seeks to arrive at an accurate analysis of the political struggle. Debate builds confidence among the members about the organization’s ideas, political positions and revolutionary orientation. This confidence in the organization and among its members is vital for creating unity of action — centralism— when socialists need to act or are threatened by state repression.The importance of LeninThe broadest range of opinions must be sought in order for the views of the working class to be accurately represented. In his 1906 report, Lenin said: “We should seek the widest possible discussion of the decisions of the Congress. We must call upon every member of the Party to take a conscious and critical stand on these resolutions. …  If we have really and seriously decided to introduce democratic centralism in our Party, and if we have resolved to draw the masses of the workers into intelligent discussion of Party questions, we must have these questions discussed in the press, at meetings, in circles and at group meetings.”On the question of debate, Lenin continued: “[T]here must be the broadest and freest discussion and condemnation of all steps, decisions and tendencies that we regard as harmful. Only through such discussions, resolutions and protests can the real public opinion of our Party be formed. Only on this condition shall we be a real Party.” Why is this battle of ideas necessary? Because dialectical materialism, the philosophical underpinning of Marxism, is a science, and scientific ideas must be rigorously tested. A revolutionary socialist organization must test its ideas through physical struggle — organizing the masses and protesting against the state — and through internal debate. In this way, socialist cadre sharpen their own political analysis, as well as that of their comrades.The other aspect of this formulation is centralism. Once a free debate has been had, it is necessary to vote on a final decision. After a vote, it is of the utmost importance that the minority submit to the will of the majority. Continuing to agitate for a minority view or failing to take united action creates an instability which weakens the party and can be seized upon by the forces of repression. Revolutionary socialists operate under intense capitalist pressure. They must be able to react quickly to changing conditions, act forcefully when opportunity emerges and weather intense attacks from reactionaries. This requires strict adherence to the party line on any given issue, once it has been established. This is the meaning of centralism.Above all, the question of internal organization for revolutionary socialists is a political question — it is not merely a matter of logistics and procedures. Rather, it is the fundamental proof that a revolutionary organization practices the ideas which it espouses. It is evidence that revolutionary socialists live by working-class democracy, just as they fight for it.For Lenin’s entire works, see marxists.org/archive/lenin.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prepare for Southern Rust

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Prepare for Southern Rust Prepare for Southern Rust SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jul 19, 2017 Prepare for Southern RustMike MeyerSouthern Rust devastated corn in Southern Indiana last year, so this year growers in SW Indiana are taking precautions. Southern Rust has been detected in Kentucky and is likely to cross into the Hoosier State. Mike Meyer, agronomist, with DuPont Crop Protection, says, “The weather conditions we have been seeing lately — the high heat, abundant rainfall, and high relative humidity — are all conducive to the spread of Southern Rust.”Meyer told HAT an outbreak of the disease could have a big yield impact, “I am especially concerned about the later planted corn. Growers should pay particular attention to late planted corn  because the earlier Southern Rust shows up in the corn plant’s life cycle, the more yield loss there is.”His recommendation is to scout for the disease and to consider a proactive application of fungicide, “We recommend Approach Prima fungicide applied near tasseling time.” The fungicide has two modes of action that are effective against Southern Rust.Track the movement of Southern Rust:https://sbr.ipmpipe.org/cgi-bin/sbr/public.cgi Facebook Twitter Previous articleSeminar will Examine Crop Resiliency and Extreme WeatherNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 20, 2017 Gary Truitt SHARElast_img read more

Safety targets due soon

first_img Previous Article Next Article Safety targets due soonOn 1 May 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Government guidance on specific targets for improving workplace health andsafety expected this monthEmployers will have specific targets to improve the health and safety oftheir workplaces, the Government is due to announce this month. The report, Revitalising health and safety, is expected to be published soonby Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott. Health and safety commissioner Dr Mike McKiernan told the Scottish OH NursesForum annual conference in Glasgow last month that the changes would make areal improvement to health and safety (see p7). The aim will be to give “clearer guidance to those who want to complywith the law and tougher action against those who do not”, said OwenTudor, TUC senior policy officer. The Government will call for closer joint working to reduce accidents andillness at work. Targets will give a measure against which to judgeperformance, similar to the objectives set out in the Our Healthier Nationprogramme for public health. There will also be an action programme to back up the announcement oftargets. The programme reflects increasing concern that existing law is not appliedfully. “I do not think that anyone is looking for major changes to thelaw,” said Tudor. “We are looking at how we get a system that dealswith the problems there are at work.” Calls are growing for tougher enforcement. Labour MPs and trade unions havecomplained that fines can be less than the cost of remedying an unsafe workingenvironment. The HSE is reviewing its enforcement policy, with a paper due outthis year. The Government is also likely to approve more stringent fines and moreresources for workplace inspections. Comments are closed. last_img read more

Stamp duty reforms descend into confusion as Javid denies move to make sellers pay

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Stamp duty reforms descend into confusion as Javid denies move to make sellers pay previous nextHousing MarketStamp duty reforms descend into confusion as Javid denies move to make sellers payChancellor suggests and then backtracks over comments that he is considering the measure, garnering much criticism from the industry.Nigel Lewis19th August 201901,398 Views Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid has denied claims that he is to move the responsibility for paying stamp duty from the buyer to the seller, throwing the government’s planned reform of the duty into confusion.His tweet followed an interview with The Times on Saturday in which it was claimed that he supported the idea, which was originally mooted by Boris Johnson during his premiership campaign, but then denied it.“More speculation about stamp duty this morning. To be clear, I never said to the Times I was planning to put it on sellers, and I wouldn’t support that. I know from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government that we need bold measures on housing – but this isn’t one of them,” his tweet said.During The Times interview, when pressed about Boris Johnson’s plans for stamp duty, he said: “I’m looking at various options. I’m a low-tax guy. I want to see simpler taxes.”Following the article, social media was awash with almost universal criticism of the measure.Kill the marketSeveral high profile politicians and property industry representatives who moved to warn that such a proposal would ‘kill’ the market during the run up to Javid’s first budget speech as vendors and buyers stalled their plans to see ‘what happens next’.This included Labour peer Lord Adonis, Marc von Grundherr, of Benham & Reeves and Henry Pryor, who addressed Javid directly.“Either announce that you are changing stamp duty or announced that you are not but please don’t announce that you are thinking about whether you might,” he said.
