From airlines to coaches, these companies suddenly found themselves out of business and had no way of knowing when they would operate fully again. One of them is the FTSE 250 stock National Express (LSE: NEX).National Express reports strong updateBut things are on the mend for the coach operator, as is evident from its trading update released today for the January–April 2021 period. Its revenue for the period was down by 16% from last year because of continued Covid-19 restrictions. But, it was up 50% from last year for April, indicating the possible impact of a normalising business environment.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…There was even better news on profits. Operating profits for the past four months were higher than last year because of cost reductions. Further, the company says that performance in March and April alone is “strongly ahead of last year”. Improved share price for the FTSE 250 stockThis continues the trend of positive updates for the company. It is also likely one of the reasons why the National Express share price remains elevated. It is up by more than three times from the stock market crash of last year and up 41% from the same time last year. But, the National Express share price has been around 300p levels since February, which is still way below the 473p levels at which it started 2020. In fact, in the past year it has never once gone back up anywhere close to the 400p levels. Why travel stocks have lagged behindNow that things are getting back to normal, I am hopeful that the share price can rise further. Some other reopening stocks like FTSE 100 retailers JD Sports Fashion, Burberry, and NEXT have surpassed their pre-market crash levels. This is an indication of investor interest in them. Travel stocks, however, have lagged. One reason is the prolonged brakes on their growth. Another is the financial decimation that has happened as a result. A third is that with virus variants around, we do not know if the lockdowns are over for good even as we get vaccinated. Can the National Express share price rise past 400p?Among travel stocks, I think some are better placed than others. I’d point to National Express, with its operating profits in 2021 so far, as an example of one of the better placed ones. Its operations across the US, Spain, and the UK are showing encouraging signs of recovery. Airlines like easyJet by comparison, are still loss-making.Because of this, I do think that National Express has a good chance of a further share price rise. But the continued uncertainty about the pandemic means I cannot say for sure if the share price will zoom past 400p any time soon. If all goes well though, I think it can. It has risen by more than 100p two times since the start of 2020. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Located on an urban infill site in close proximity to the River Quaggy in Lewisham, No. 49 is a new-build, two-storey single dwelling. Designed by 31/44 Architects for one of the practice’s partners, Steven Davies, it is the second self-build that Stephen has built within the same street in Lewisham in five years, following completion of No. 22 in 2011.Save this picture!© Anna StathakiThe form and arrangement of the house is derived from a response to the immediate context and site conditions. Raised above the street to alleviate the risk of flooding, the three-bedroom dwelling has a staggered rectilinear plan at ground level, with the first-floor mass located towards the northern site boundary. The layout is designed to maximise the scheme’s south-facing aspect and establish a close relationship between the internal and external living spaces.Save this picture!© Anna StathakiOrganised around three courtyards, the west side of the plan houses the main living areas with views into the front and rear gardens. A guest suite opens onto a third courtyard, while a second reception space is located towards the rear. The first floor is accessed via a curved timber staircase with a large picture window overlooking the street. Facing south towards the river and a nearby park, the master bedroom is linked to the third bedroom via connecting doors.Save this picture!© Anna StathakiThe house has a quiet, dignified appearance. It is constructed from a grey brick sourced from Belgium which was chosen to complement the weathered London stocks of the neighbouring houses. A 4.5-metre- long precast concrete lintel bisects the front elevation and an oversized masonry column accentuates the apparent weight of the building.Save this picture!© Anna StathakiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Anna StathakiInside the house plywood storage units and a curved staircase provide a warmth and tactile finish.

Solidarity still needed to break blockade of Cuba

first_imgA forum at the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clark School of Law, entitled “Through Cuban Eyes,” discussed the blockade and current status of U.S.-Cuban relations, and what solidarity activists can do to fully normalize relations between the two countries. This April 22 event concluded the 2016 Days of Action Against the Blockade of Cuba in Washington, D.C., which took place starting April 18. Keynote speaker, Cuban Ambassador José Ramón Cabañas Rodríguez, stressed the need for solidarity: “In order to create the vision of the future, we all need solidarity.” Cuba is mourning the three Cuban physicians killed in Ecuador’s earthquake, but will not withdraw aid, but instead send even more doctors and experts to help.The earthquake killed more than 600 people and injured thousands in Ecuador. “For those who have doubts about the need for solidarity, we have to see what is happening around us,” Cabanas continued. “And in those first world countries, most of the problems are fixed from an economic point of view. You have those who own a lot and those who have no resources for a decent life. With those people we need to create solidarity.“Cubans of the last three or four generations have been born and educated with the principle that we have to show solidarity for others, because we have received a lot of solidarity from you, from many countries and many societies. “One thing I want to emphasize, the blockade is still in place. … The core issue is still there. Large regulations and limits have to be overcome if we really want to have a normal relationship with the United States. … The sanction regime from 1962 and what the Helms-Burton law established — by the way, 30 years ago this year — is still there.”Solidarity with Cuba and in CubaAmong the forum panelists were Venceremos Brigade representative Jennifer Bryant and Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization Executive Director Gail Walker. Their organizations, as well as the Institute for Policy Studies, the National Network on Cuba and the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity — formerly the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 — carried out grassroots activities and advocacy on Capitol Hill. They also held informational forums at American University and the University of the District of Columbia from April 18 to April 22.Others on the panel were attorney José Pertierra, noted author Stephen Kimber and two U.S. graduates from Cuba’s Latin American School of Medicine (ELAM): Vanessa Avila and Alicia Steele. Both Latina doctors expressed their admiration and gratitude for the opportunity to become medical doctors, which they otherwise could not have afforded in the class based elite U.S. medical schools. They emphasized Cuba’s holistic approach to medical practice, which emphasizes prevention and education as well as the mental, physical and social aspects of patient care. As if to underline what the ambassador said of the unfinished normalization of U.S.-Cuban relations, only one of five Cuban speakers invited to the Days of Action — journalism student Jorge “Jorgito” Jerez — received a U.S. visa in time to participate in Washington on April 22, after missing earlier events in New York City.A documentary film, “The Power of the Weak,” by German filmmaker Tobias Kriele, was premiered in the U.S. The film presents the biographical profile of Jerez, who was born with severe cerebral palsy in 1993, at the height of Cuba’s Special Period, when Cuba lost its economic trade and aid following the collapse of the Soviet Union and other Eastern European socialist countries. In short, the film emphasizes how a society built on socialism can provide health care and education free for all Cuban citizens. Such was the life of Jorgito, who is now a self-sufficient journalist in Cuba. His presentation and moving testimony at the forum illustrated the support Cuba provides for people with disabilities. Jorgito concluded his presentation, without reservation and with a strong note of conviction: “Without Cuba and its history, I wouldn’t be Jorgito.” A full report and extensive photos of the 2016 Days of Action to end the blockade of Cuba will be posted at TheInternationalCommittee.org and NNOC.info.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Congress Once Again Taking Up Disaster Aid

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Congress Once Again Taking Up Disaster Aid SHARE The U.S. House is set to work on a disaster aid bill that includes financial help for Midwestern and Southern Farmers. The Hagstrom Report says House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer made the announcement last week as the House adjourned until Tuesday. Hoyer says the House will consider H.R. 2157, which is the Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2019. “The legislation would provide relief and recovery assistance to Americans that have been affected by recent natural disasters,” Hoyer says. “It includes an additional $3 billion to address serious needs that resulted from flooding in the Midwest and tornadoes in the South.”Meanwhile, Senate Republicans say they have a plan put together that includes $300 million in additional aid to Puerto Rico, which Democrats want. They also say that President Trump has agreed to support the bill. Republican Senator David Perdue of Georgia says that Trump is “on board.” Perdue also told the Washington Post that, “I hope the logjam in Congress is breaking. I honestly think both sides are trying right now.” By NAFB News Service – May 5, 2019 Congress Once Again Taking Up Disaster Aid Facebook Twitter Previous articlePlanting Forecast: Showers and Storms Sandwiched by Sunshine This WeekNext articleTrump Says Tariffs Will Increase on Chinese Goods Friday After Slow Negotiations NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

TCU, area schools share similar policies for handling suspicious people

first_imgReddIt Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Facebook Facebook Shane Battis Linkedin Lead On committee co-chairs share goals with students Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ TAGSArlington Heights High SchoolFWISDO.D. Wyatt High Schoolsafety printAfter a series of incidents involving a mentally ill man near TCU’s campus, the university sent out a campus wide crime alerts – one of its strategies for handling suspicious people around campus.A TCU crime alert stated that Daniel Staley was detained in the 2800 block of McCart Avenue, Dec. 24 after texted a hotline and wrote that he wanted to dismember a random woman. He was released after a psychological evaluation on Jan. 6.He was later arrested Jan. 9 for burglary at the University of North Texas Health Science Center.TCU police detective Robert Rangel said university police sent out the crime alert because Staley was in the TCU area when he made the threats.Rangel said if Staley had been seen on campus, TCU Police would have responded and potentially put the area on lockdown until he was in custody. However, it’s unlikely that this type of situation would result in a lockdown, Rangel said.“Every situation is subjective,” Rangel said. “It would have to be an immediate and active threat.”TCU police shut down part of University Drive for precautionary measures last year after a suspicious package was found for precautionary measures.The Fort Worth school district has similar policies for training for incidents and have security measures to keep students safe from intruders, said Clint Bond, a spokesperson for the district.Bond said all 83 elementary schools have a buzzer system that controls entry into campus buildings. Visitors can only be buzzed in after their driver’s license is scanned against the sex offender registry. Security is alerted if people are found to be on the list.Bond said the district is working on implementing this system into its other campuses.He talked about some of the emergency situations that occurred in high schools last month.Arlington Heights High School responded to an off campus shooting that occurred at nearby McDonald’s restaurant Dec. 3. The principal was informed of the situation and put the building on lockdown to make sure the suspect couldn’t take refuge at the school.The following week, a 16-year-old O.D. Wyatt High School student was stabbed by another student, WFAA reported. Bond said adults in the room handled the event “in seconds” and the school did not go on lockdown.Bond said FWISD’s security procedures are evaluated after every incident. Neither of the two high school emergencies called for a change in protocols.He also said that the school district has universal training to help keep children safe called “Know The Plan.” According to the FWISD website, this training is for emergency prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery.According to “Know The Plan,” prevention involves reporting suspicious activity when sighted. Preparedness is about knowing what to do in situations like natural disasters. Responses include lockdown, building evacuation, reverse evacuation, and shelter-in-place procedures, and recovery uses Student Support Services to help students feel safe again.“We use every opportunity to teach our kids about stranger danger,” Bond said. The Leap: 10 April Fool’s pranks to try this year Numbers can only say so much about a person.With an essay now required for study abroad applications, this new approach gives The Center for International Studies a better look at the level of interest from students rather than just their qualifications. In the past, the only requirement was a grade point average and while it gives some insight into how focused students are on their grades, it doesn’t offer their personal perspective on the experiences that lie ahead.

In mass trial, journalists get two more months in jail, public barred from court

first_img Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law (Picture: Bülent Kilic / AFP) to go further Organisation Thirty-six journalists and media workers whose trial began in central Istanbul on 10 September (see below) will remain in provisional detention for at least two more months after the judge abruptly ended the first series of hearings yesterday, rejecting defence petitions and transferring future hearings to Silivri, in Istanbul province.”Two more months in prison!” Reporters Without Borders protested. “When the next hearing is held on 12 November, 36 of the 44 defendants will have spent nearly a year in provisional detention. Despite the 5 July reform law, hardly any more grounds are being given for these decisions than before. “Furthermore, by deciding to henceforth hold this mass political trial 100 km from Istanbul, the court is trying to prevent civil society from observing it, and this is unacceptable.” The atmosphere was tense during the first three days of the trial, in which the defendants are accused of forming a “media committee” that took its orders from an outlawed Kurdish separatist organization. After clapping and protesting noisily during the 11 September hearing, observers were barred from the court yesterday.The presiding judge ended the first series of hearings two days earlier than planned, before the indictment could be read out in court. On the prosecution’s recommendation, the court rejected all of the defence lawyers’ requests – conditional release, permission to dispute the validity of the charges, and permission for the defendants to use their mother tongue, Kurdish, during the trial.When the requests were rejected, the defendants placed black bandages over their mouths and turned their backs on the jury in protest.”We feel like bit players in this hearing,” defence lawyer Sinan Zincir told the court. “We do not accept the way this court is treating us, nor do we accept the presence of members of the security forces in the law court.” Fellow defence lawyer Ercan Kanar called on the court to end the public’s exclusion and to treat the defence fairly. He also announced his intention to ask the High Judiciary Council (HSYK) to dismiss the jury.—–10.09.2012 – Authorities asked to stop criminalizing journalism as trial of 36 detained pro-Kurdish journalists gets under wayThe trial of 36 journalists with pro-Kurdish media who have been held since 20 December 2011 opens today in Istanbul. Reporters Without Borders, whose Turkish correspondent is attending the trial, calls for the release of all journalists detained in connection with their work and urges the judicial authorities to give them a fair trial.”This mass trial recalls darker times that we had hoped were a thing of the past,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Despite all the promises and some marginal improvements, the judicial system is persisting with the serious abuses that we have been condemning for years – criminalization of critical and activist journalism, articles treated as acts of terrorism and systematic abuses of the anti-terrorism law and pre-trial detention.”This repressive approach to the media and civil society not only threatens freedom of information and violates Turkey’s international obligations but also makes it more unlikely that a peaceful solution will be found to the Kurdish problem in the near future and undermines the credibility of Turkey’s attempts to play the role of a regional model.” A total of 44 journalists with pro-Kurdish media such the newspaper Özgür Gündem and the news agency DIHA go on trial today – the 36 who have been held ever since their arrest last December and eight others who have since been released. They are above all accused of taking orders from the KCK – the urban wing of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an armed separatist group that is outlawed – and of forming “media committees” at the KCK’s behest. Most of them are charged with membership of an illegal organization or with being one of its leaders.In support of these charges, the 800-page indictment refers above all to published articles and to the journalists’ contacts and conversations. As in the trial of journalists working for Oda TV, much is being read into their supposed reasons for covering certain events or talking to certain sources. As far as the prosecution is concerned, contacting or interviewing pro-Kurdish activists, including members of the legal BDP party, is clearly a crime, and coverage of mistreatment of detainees, violent crackdowns on demonstrations or a deadly mistake by the Turkish air force must have been carried out on the KCK’s orders in order to discredit the authorities. Part of the prosecution case file is being kept secret in violation of the rights of defence.Although the trial’s scale is unprecedented in recent years in Turkey, the trial is far from being isolated. Journalists are being tried every week, in most cases under the anti-terrorism law. The trial of 204 people, including Nobel Peace Prize nominee Ragip Zarakolu and three other journalists, under a separate section of the KCK case will resume on 1 October (LINK).A court in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir is to rule on 13 September on a request for the conditional release of Hawar journalist Bedri Adanir, who has been held since January 2010. The trial of Murat Aydin, a DIHA journalist who has been held since October 2011 on a charge of “PKK propaganda through the media,” is to begin in the eastern city of Van on 18 September.The trial of Ahmet Sik, Nedim Sener and the Oda TV journalists will meanwhile resume in Istanbul on 14 September.

He also highlighted the development of research networks and projects as potential outcomes of the conference.“Concerns will be raised here today that will continue to be key issues and merit ongoing debate at local, national and international level. Debates which can be extended and developed at future events,” Prof Hayes explained.“We welcome your participation and encourage you to share your own ideas and to network among yourselves with a view to planning further debate.”Keynote speeches focused upon the educational vision and work of Patrick Pearse. While workshops also served to complement the keynote speeches with many links made with Limerick and Mary Immaculate College.The social and cultural life of the college during the 1916 era was also explored through a reflection on the first graduates and a perspective on the evolution of the dress of the Mercy Order since 1916.Limerick life then and now was presented to the audience in the context of diversity, inclusion, health and poverty.Conference coordinator, Dr Carol O’Sullivan, acknowledged the success and vibrancy of the conference and the fact that it served to bring together many different disciplines and interests.“We hope that today is just the beginning and that the questions posed here will be discussed again in many other fora,” she commented.
