If you’re looking for safe-haven stocks today, then buying into companies that are involved in the production, distribution and sale of food is largely a good idea. But is buying shares in Tesco (LSE: TSCO) a good idea?On Wednesday Britain’s biggest supermarket chain advised that it’ll take a hit of between £650m and £925m as a result of the pandemic. It blamed “significant cost increases in payroll, distribution and store expenses”as the reason behind the big bill.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…While the panic-buying at the start of the crisis has mostly subsided, outgoing chief executive Dave Lewis commented that “there are [still] significant extra costs in feeding the nation at the moment.”Tesco under pressureThe UK’s supermarkets witnessed a boom in demand at the start of the crisis as stockpiling fever gripped the nation. Tesco saw sales leap 30% in the first few weeks of the crisis. It understandably caused significant problems for its supply chain though.Sure, the FTSE 100 firm might be over the worst of the supply crisis. But there remain a number of other problems that it is suffering from. Its Booker wholesale division has been struck by “a weak market in both the wholesale and catering sectors”as restaurants, pubs and a wide array of other leisure facilities have had to shutter operations.It also faces the problem of its stores only being half-filled due to social distancing requirements. Tesco doesn’t have much capacity to make up for lost sales through its online division, either. It admits that 85% to 90% of all food bought will require a trip to one of its stores.On top of this, Tesco has had to recruit 45,000 new staff members because of what it describes as a “significant absence” of existing workers. With Covid-19 infections continuing to rise, it looks like the business will have to keep on recruiting too.Long-term questionsThe supermarket’s troubles are deep and numerous. It’s no wonder that it advised today that “it would not be prudent to provide financial guidance for 2020/21.”Despite its current travails though, could Tesco still be considered a sound long-term buy? Again, food retailing is one of those industries that will be around until the end of days. And as the country’s largest grocer, this Footsie share is in great shape to ride this trend, right?I’m not convinced. I worry about the impact that rising competition (particularly from the likes of discounters Aldi and Lidl) for its physical stores poses. It’s likely that the fragmentation of the grocery market will begin to grow for its online business too, as new players emerge and existing internet retailers ramp up their operations.Tesco’s forward P/E ratio of around 12 times makes it cheap on paper. But it’s still a share that carries too much risk for my liking. I’d much rather buy other Footsie-quoted shares instead. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Jade Konkel’s remarkable rugby journey

first_imgI do 13 training sessions a week. That’s not including analysis and recovery. At Quins we have gym and training on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as a skills and speed session on Wednesdays. I’ll also do lots of extras on my own.I have a whole new respect for front-rows. Last year I started two Tests at loosehead – Shade Munro wanted to get his 15 best players on the pitch. I tried it but I’m much more comfortable at No 8.I remember a scrum against Wales and trying to get round the corner ready for a ball-carry and my legs were so heavy. I wasn’t used to that pain. Front-rowers need a different energy system.Skills work: Jade Konkel during Harlequins training (Getty Images)I’m now a vegan. I’d read up on the health benefits and thought I’d see if I could do it. I’ve actually found it easy and feel a lot better.I feel fitter and more healthy. I macro count everything I eat and I know how many grams of carbs, how much protein and so on I’ve eaten each day. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight but I’ve maintained muscle and lost fat, so hopefully I’ll be a more agile No 8 but have the same power and momentum.I’ve got tattoos on both my arms, my ribs, just above my bum, my feet… They’re all specific and a guy in Edinburgh does them. There’s one of me and my sister at my brother’s wedding; a picture of me after my first win in a Scotland shirt; my two favourite places – for a rugby pitch, singing the national anthem and then a view of trees and mountains because I grew up in the countryside… I also have the words: ‘Don’t dream your life, live your dream’.I write ETT – Empty The Tank – on tape on my wrists before every game. I’ll also write buzzwords like ‘low’ or ‘hunt’ and if I’m not happy with my performance at half-time I might just write ‘5%’ to encourage me to step it up. You’ve always got an extra 5%, you go to a dark place and keep going. I’ve got different-coloured Sharpies, so I’ll use blue if I’m playing for Scotland.I listen to motivational quotes or look at them on my phone too.I’m a black belt in Goshin-Ryu Kempo. It’s a self-defence martial art. I also used to play basketball for Highland Bears in the national league. I enjoyed it but I like the physicality of rugby, as well as everything in the game having a purpose and knowing you have your team-mates’ backs and they have yours. It’s a good feeling.I’ve just finished my personal training qualifications. I’m also doing some other courses and after rugby I would like to set up something in deprived areas to encourage people to get active and be healthy. TAGS: Harlequins LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Harlequins and Scotland No 8 Jade Konkel talks long drives, going vegan and meaningful tattoos Front foot: Jade Konkel helped Harlequins to the Tyrrells Premier 15s final (Getty Images) Jade Konkel’s remarkable rugby journeyThere were few opportunities for Jade Konkel to play rugby growing up, but since focusing on the sport aged 17 she has excelled, becoming Scotland’s first female professional player and a key figure for the national side as well as Harlequins.Here she talks through her remarkable rugby journey…I used to drive three-and-a-half hours each way to play. There wasn’t much girls’ rugby around the Black Isle, but at 17 I drove to Edinburgh for a development day and got selected for Scotland U20.After that, every week I drove along the A9 to Glasgow to play for Hillhead-Jordanhill. Sometimes I’d leave at 5am and then find the game had been cancelled, and I’d be sore getting in the car after a match, but I knew I needed to play.I wanted to put everything into rugby. So after three years at uni in Glasgow studying social care, I concentrated on rugby for a year.I got a Stage Two contract from Scottish Rugby, which was unpaid but gave me help with S&C. When they offered me a Stage Three contract, which is paid, I burst out crying! It was nice to see it pay off.On the ball: Jade Konkel in action against Wales during the Women’s Six Nations (Inpho)I was the first woman to get a contract but I’m not the last. It was the same playing with Lille in France last season. Scottish Rugby have created a partnership with them and more girls are doing it.There are now eight players on contracts, we have a women’s sponsor, a great coaching set-up, our matches are on BBC ALBA – it’s all really positive for Scotland.The 2021 World Cup is what we’re aiming for. I’ve played Test rugby since 2013 and missed two World Cups, so we have to get to this next one. We have a core group who can be together for the long run and are improving every year.I was such a home bird, I never thought I’d move away. Instead, I’ve lived in Glasgow for five years, France for a year and now the South of England. Karen Findlay’s been trying to get me to come to Harlequins for a couple of years. I wanted to get the experience in France first and then come here.The physicality in Premier 15s is up there with France. Here there is probably more structure, but the two leagues are quite similar.

St. James’ in Austin informs, empowers Hispanic community

first_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA 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 Cathedral Dean Boise, ID This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Tags Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem [Diocese of Texas] Lawyer Jim Harrington doesn’t mince words as he assists a family comprised of legal and undocumented immigrants in filling out power of attorney and caregiver affidavits.“These forms need to be clear and correct, or they’ll find any reason to separate you from your children,” said Harrington, founder Proyecto Santiago, a community outreach program that meets at St. James’ Episcopal Church to inform families on issues facing the Hispanic community.These communities must find some way to live and exist in a post-election, Donald Trump presidency. President Trump’s hardline campaign promises on immigration have come to fruition in the form of illegal and documented immigrants alike finding their lives thrown into upheaval by ICE, or the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agencyThe effects of this agency’s work are being felt all around Austin. The Austin American-Statesman reported on Feb. 22 that federal documents obtained by the newspaper revealed U.S. immigration agents arrest a higher number of people in Austin without prior criminal convictions than in any other region of the country. This news preceded the results of a national operation in the city where more than 51 people were arrested in an ICE operation known as Cross Check. Among the 51 arrested, only 23 possessed criminal convictions or violent offenses.Harrington’s mission in the area has always centered on helping those whose rights are being infringed upon. He began the Texas Civil Rights Project in 1990 and has worked as a human rights lawyer for more than 40 years. He’s now using that experience to educate and inform the Hispanic community of St James, having formed Proyecto Santiago almost a year ago. The goal was to inform bilingual and Spanish-speaking members of the congregation alike on consumer information, how to interact with the police and government agencies, and addressing community problems.This particular meeting on March 4 was to assist with filling out legal documents for family members, such as special power of attorney forms, but also having personal information organized and a plan in motion for when detainment is imminent.The room was filled with about 30 members of the Hispanic congregation—making up about seven families—each a mix of those who spoke English were undocumented, or legal citizens of the United States. A low hum of anxiety and fear hovered over the community hall for the three-hour meeting, but Harrington finds hope in the response and turnout.“There’s a lot of worry about what’s going to happen in the future,” Harrington said. “Still, nobody tonight was afraid to ask questions. I asked everyone where they were from, and the response was forthcoming.”The community views the church as a safe place, which is something that the church as a whole has done well with to this point, according to Harrington. He thinks the key to helping protect and inform the Hispanic community around Austin is to organize the congregation as a whole, but also to ask questions and be empathic towards the plight of our immigrant neighbors.When asked what those who wish to help can do, Harrington thinks the key is understanding. “In this immigration story, we talk about what happens north of the border. We never talk about the story from the border down and the violence and suffering that drives people to the United States.”For Harrington, helping is as simple as showing that you care. “What we did today is easy to replicate, and left these people feeling empowered to help others. They wouldn’t have gotten that feeling from just going to a lawyer. Now, these same people tell me ‘I’m going to bring more people next time.’”For more information on Proyecto Santiago, visit StJamesAustin.Org.— Paulette Martin is the Diocese of Texas’ Hispanic communications specialist.  Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Washington, DC Submit an Event Listing In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Knoxville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT March 27, 2017 at 12:59 am Thank you, Mr. Harrington.

Does a Small Business Need a Line of Credit?

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! Previous articleOrange County Impact Fees Benefit CommunityNext articleThis Day in History: Tortilla Flat is Published Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR A small business line of credit offers numerous advantages for entrepreneurs who need to protect their businesses and maximize their profits. Since all businesses experience cash flow fluctuations and issues from time to time, it’s a good idea to have a plan in place to even out those rough edges until your business gets its financial footing again.Meet Unexpected Expenses Without WorryPrepared small business owners don’t have as many financial hassles or worries because they know they have unexpected expenses covered.A small business line of credit is different from a loan. You don’t have to take the money if you don’t need it, but the cash is there when you do have a need to meet an unexpected expense. If the plumbing in your building fails or if you need to increase your inventory at a moment’s notice, you can tap your line of credit and take care of the issue with a simple funds transfer.If you rely on loans, on the other hand, you can’t get access to money until you apply for the loan, wait through the approval process, and transfer the funds to your bank account. Even a few days can make a huge difference in your success when responding to an emergency or an urgent business need that could affect your bottom line.Pay Lower Interest RatesEvery bank sets its own rates for lending products, but in most cases, you’ll pay less interest on small business lines of credit than you will on loans or credit cards. This means that the cost of borrowing the money will be less, so you don’t have to work as hard to make up the difference.  As a user, the knowledge of common credit card jargon can help you explore more options and possibilities, and help you make the best choice.Plus, you don’t have to pay interest when you don’t need the money. With a loan, you have to make monthly payments regardless of your financial situation. A small business line of credit works differently. Since it’s a revolving account, your payments change based on your activity.Take Advantage of DealsLines of credit allow you to take advantage of good deals when they come your way.The hottest product of the season is released and you want to carry it on your retail store’s shelves. Unfortunately, you don’t have the liquid capital to purchase the merchandise.That’s where a line of credit comes in. You can use it to take advantage of deals, whether it’s inventory for a store or an upgrade to your technology. You don’t have to wait until your revenue is in line with the expense of the product or service you need.Save Your BusinessIn some cases, lines of credit mean the difference between closing your business and keeping it alive for the future. When cash flow issues become insurmountable, you might just need a financial boost to get you through the rough patch.It’s not worth losing your dream. Applying for a line of credit allows you to protect your business in the future. When you need cash, it’s available to you.“The best time to apply for a line of credit is before you need it,” according to Bill Arrowsmith, Executive Vice President of Seacoast Bank in Apopka.  “It is the best way for a small business owner to ensure access to the cash you need to help your business grow and succeed.” Gov.

Ireland get their first ever win in Argentina in Resistencia

first_imgMonday Jun 9, 2014 Ireland get their first ever win in Argentina in Resistencia Ireland got their series in Argentina off to a good start with a 29-17 win in Resistencia, but have a few injury concerns ahead of next weekend’s match in Tucuman. Luke Marshall and Conor Murray are in doubt, while Jonny Sexton should recover.Argentina scored the first try of the match when Manuel Montero was put in space and finished brilliantly, but a Chris Henry try shortly afterwards saw them lead 11-10 at the break. Sexton scored shortly after the break following a lineout steal from debutant South African, Robbie Diack.Ireland added to their total around the hour mark as wing Andrew Trimble intercepted a long pass. Sexton converted the try but soon went off and was replaced by Ian Madigan, who added two penalties to put the Six Nations champions out of reach. Tomas de la Vega scored a consolation try.“It was very hard going, we knew it was going to be physical which it was,” said skipper Paul O’Connell. “We didn’t know we were going to be as inaccurate as we were. We put a lot of balls down and missed some tackles.“They put us under a lot of pressure, I think the result is great but the performance is disappointing.“You look at what England did going down to New Zealand putting in a big performance against them, that’s what we needed to do and we didn’t do that. This gives us something to work on now and something to review over the next few days and knowing Joe Schmidt it will be a very tough review and hopefully our performance will improve next week.”Marshall suffered concussion, his fourth in 12 months, so will need to be assessed before the 2nd Test. Scrumhalf Murray suffered a dead leg, while Sexton has recovered from a knee cramp.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Pros give their verdict on the Piers Francis tackle that could have been the quickest ever red card

first_imgFriday Sep 27, 2019 Pros give their verdict on the Piers Francis tackle that could have been the quickest ever red card Piers Francis almost had the shortest debut in Rugby World Cup history in England’s match against the USA on Thursday. In fact, it would have been the shortest appearance ever in a RWC match when he collided with Will Hooley in the very first tackle of the match, making contact with his head.ADVERTISEMENTHigh tackles have undoubtedly been the most debated topic of the RWC so far, and it only took five seconds before there was another tackle that was added to the catalogue of controversial hits at this year’s tournament. The referee Nic Berry missed it on that occasion, but there are expected to be ramifications.In light of the tackle, former and current professionals have had their say, and what should be the outcome. Jamie Roberts was one to point out if Australia’s Reece Hodge’s three-week ban set the standard at this RWC, Francis should expect the same punishment.Both Francis’ and Hodge’s tackles are comparable, although Hooley had dipped into the tackle slightly more than Peceli Yato had, and it could be argued that Francis initially hit the shoulders and slid up.Then again, the Northampton Saints centre was coming in at a greater speed, and it could therefore be deemed to be more reckless. What does come across is that neither player showed any malice, if that does count for anything.ADVERTISEMENTFormer Wallabies winger Drew Mitchell, who has been very critical of the decision to ban Hodge, posed the question on Twitter as to what Francis should expect, and another three-week ban seems to be the verdict.Hodge was initially banned for six weeks, but it was halved based on his character and record, so the same should be expected for Francis.https://twitter.com/drew_mitchell/status/1177187563380994049Citing no doubt 3 weeks— Andy Goode (@AndyGoode10) September 26, 2019There were a couple of incidents in this match that were missed, although John Quill’s heinous challenge to the head of Owen Farrell was not. The flanker saw red, and it is highly unlikely that he will play again at this tournament, as he’s just been suspended for three weeks.ADVERTISEMENTWith the tournament not even a week old, there have already been three suspensions to date, which suggests this could be the defining feature of this year’s RWC.Francis will face a discplinary hearing at a date yet to be determined.

The project is a reinterpretation of a housing called «courée». This is a typical form of courtyard workers housing, often built in the industrial districts of the North of France during the nineteenth century. The program aims to develop a modern approach of this theme. It focuses on a specific contemporary issue which is to limit expansion of the cities and therefore to enhance urban centers. The challenge mainly focuses on opening up that kind of habitat in order to offer a collective life in a space outside of the city.The interior collective space is punctuated with daylight and views of the surrounding garden. The vistas open up the apartments. Save this picture!© VandekherkovA gateway game is serving the various residential buildings and leads the alleyway.

Perdue: 2nd Round of MFP Payments Authorized

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Perdue: 2nd Round of MFP Payments Authorized Facebook Twitter Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that the second tranche of Market Facilitation Program payments has been authorized.The Market Facilitation Program (MFP) provides assistance to farmers and ranchers with commodities directly impacted by unjustified foreign retaliatory tariffs, resulting in the loss of traditional export markets. Assistance is available for agricultural producers of non-specialty crops, dairy, hogs, and specialty crops.The first round of MFP payments began in early August.

Her arrest warrant said “articles damaging to national security had been found at her home” and that “the accused clearly stated that she posted these articles on her weblog”. Reporters Without Borders welcomed the release on 17 January 2009, of blogger Shahnaz Gholami, editor of the blog Azar Zan (http://azarwomen.blogfa.com), after 69 days in custody. She was freed on bail of 200 million toman (about 200 000 euros). News Help by sharing this information “She has now been released, but her blog, which is her only method of expressing herself, is censored in her country. The authorities’ hounding of those who dare to be critical in an attempt to silence them, detracts from the positive aspect of this release. Human rights activists are always the first targets of official repression preventing them from freely publishing news. We strongly condemn this attitude”, the organisation added.
