Serco on track to hit targets

first_img Share whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULL GOVERNMENT moves to cut costs by contracting out services have paid off for support service group Serco, putting it on course to hit targets and boosting its shares.The group’s stock rose 8.5p to 571.5p after it said it was on track to boost revenue to about £5bn by the end of 2012 and to lift operating profit margins by 6.3 per cent.Serco, which runs London’s cycle hire scheme and Docklands Light Railway, several prisons and Dubai’s recently opened underground system, also said it was on track to hit its financial targets this year.Chief executive Christopher Hyman said pressure on governments to reduce budget deficits was resulting in more business for the firm.“There remains strong global demand for the efficient delivery of essential services,” he said.Serco last week struck a deal with ministers to reduce the cost of its contracts after an earlier bid to make some suppliers shoulder the burden of savings backfired on the group.The company had to apologise to sub-contractors after angering the government by writing to suppliers demanding rebates on contracts in the first half of 2010.The group has won orders worth £4.5bn in the year to date, including a £650m environmental services deal with a council in the West Midlands and a £110m contract with King’s College hospital.The group said passengers on the Dubai Metro had made more than 30m journeys in its first year, while more than 100,000 people had joined London’s bike scheme.In the US, the US navy handed it two deals worth a total of $130m to provide logistics support and to manage hazardous materials. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

3 UK shares I’d buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021 with £2k to invest

3 UK shares I’d buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021 with £2k to invest Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. The uncertain economic outlook isn’t harming my plans to keep buying for my Stocks and Shares ISA. I think there are still plenty of UK shares that should deliver fat profits in 2021 regardless of the Covid-19 crisis.Here are three British stocks I’d happily add to my ISA today. I’d buy them for these nervy times, but hold them until the end of the decade.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…#1: Meat and drinkThe rising popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets in the West will impact Devro’s profits growth over the next decade. But I think the sausage casings maker is still likely to see bottom-line momentum as global meat consumption rises on improving wealth levels in emerging markets.Devro announced last week that it had seen higher volumes and margins in the final months of 2020. This reflects demand growth as broader meat consumption increases. It reflects the efforts this UK share is making to cut costs to boost margins too. An effort to embrace higher-margin food products should help the business keep momentum on the margin front too. And in the meantime I believe it should be able rely on its defensive operations to keep the bottom line ticking over.#2: A rebadged UK shareThe threat of harsh regulation always poses danger for gambling operators like Entain. This company — known as GVC Holdings up until recently — was hit hard by the banning of fixed-odds betting terminals in its shops two years ago in Britain, for example. It’s been suggested that trading rules could be tightened in some markets following the online gambling explosion of 2020 too.MGM Resorts International might have pulled out of buying Entain last week. But I think the future remains bright for the firm. The online gambling segment has room for significant growth in the years ahead. And that’s particularly so in Entain’s US marketplace, a territory that Hargreaves Lansdown says is “already worth many billions of dollars a year.” I’d also buy this particular stock on account of its heavyweight brands like Coral and partypoker and its market-leading online platforms.#3: The key to huge returns?Plenty of stocks have been hit by the Covid-19 crisis. But changing lifestyles in response to the pandemic have boosted trading at many other firms. Such companies include those involved in the business of video games development, like Keywords Studios. This form of entertainment was already exploding before last year’s public health emergency. It’s received an extra boost as locked-down citizens the world over have sought escapism.Keywords Studios — which supplies a variety of support services to games developers — is busy on the acquisition front to make the most of this rapidly-growing market. Amongst the flurry of acquisitions its made in recent months include those of High Voltage Software and Heavy Iron Studios. These moves significantly bolster the UK share’s position in the colossal US marketplace.That said, Keywords’ valuation is high with a price-to-earnings (P/E) of 49 times. This could leave it in danger of a correction should market growth slow.

‘Now is the time,’ witnesses say, to work harder against…

first_img Larry Waters says: By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jul 5, 2018 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Oklahoma Deputy Julia Ayala Harris, the proposer of Resolution D016, testifies July 5 to the Committee on Safeguarding and Title IV. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] People of all genders told the Safeguarding and Title IV Committee July 5 that the Episcopal Church must do more to eliminate sexual discrimination and abuse.“What we witnessed last night was just a beginning,” the Rev. Cynthia Taylor, a Georgia deputy, told the committee, referring to the House of Bishops’ “Liturgy of Listening,” a service of lament and confession centered on stories of sexual abuse and exploitation in the Episcopal Church. “That work is incomplete, my sisters and brothers.”Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.Taylor said the work is incomplete if “we pat ourselves on the back for being open to discussion of the role of institutional discrimination, harassment and abuse of women.” The church must find a way to continue “not just the conversation but the hard work of seeking the truth, respecting the dignity of all human beings through the restoration of their God-given rights as children of God.”Since she became the first woman ordained in the Diocese of South Carolina more than 32 years ago, Taylor said she has “had personally experienced gender biases in the form of equality of pay, sexual harassment, sexual abuse and gross misuse of power by ecclesiastical authorities” in clergy discipline cases.“Things have changed somewhat, but the abuses of the past are not only still with us. There is a sense that by just speaking up about injustices, such injustices have been addressed,” she told the committee. “They have not.”The committee held an open hearing on Resolution D016 and Resolution D020.The Committee on Safeguarding and Title IV’s hearing room was crowded for a July 5 hearing on two resolutions pertaining to sexual harassment. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceD016 would have the General Convention “confess our sins of gender-based discrimination, harassment, and violence against women and girls in all their forms as we understand these sins.” It would call on the Episcopal Church to “turn from the systems of oppression, patriarchy, heteronormativity, white supremacy, and our colonial legacy, among them, and seek to engage in restoration of the dignity of women and reconciliation from past acts.” It would establish a task force to help accomplish that work. The resolution is “meant to address issues related to gender-based violence and discrimination on an overall structural and cultural level,” said Oklahoma Deputy Julia Ayala Harris who proposed the resolution.Citing the work of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the United Methodist Church, Ayala Harris said, “We find ourselves in the midst of a movement that has already begun within other mainline denominations. This is not uncharted territory.”D020 would appoint a task force to conduct a survey on “gender-based discrimination, harassment, and violence against women and girls in all their forms as we understand these sins, which include, but are not limited to, sexual and gender harassment, sexual assault, physical, spiritual, and emotionally abusive behavior, and oppression based on gender.” The results of the survey would be publicly reported online no later than early 2021, the year of the 80th General Convention.When asked by a committee member if she would accept a move by the committee to combine the two resolutions, Ayala Harris said she had anticipated such a suggestion and had prepared a draft for such a move.The Rev. Brian Baker, Northern California deputy and member of Executive Council, said, “The church is a hostile work environment for women and it’s just not okay.”“I am embarrassed that the church is being led by the culture of the #MeToo movement,” he said. “We’re responding because they woke up when we should have woken up first.”The Very Rev. Craig Loya, a Nebraska deputy, told the committee that he agreed to be an official endorser of D016 because “it is long past time for us as a church to fully account for the ways that we have been complicit in – in ways that we have actively perpetrated – sexism, misogyny, sexual harassment and gender discrimination.”Rowan Pantalena, a postulant from the Diocese of Connecticut and a self-described “nonbinary trans person,” spoke to the committee about the aftermath of being raped while in seminary. That experience, Pantalena said, showed “how hard it is to speak up.”“Please consider the difficulty that comes for anyone who speaks about their own experience of sexual harassment and violence, whether perpetuated by people employed by the church or external,” Pantalena said.The members also heard testimony on two memorials, or petitions, to convention, one titled “Women and Social Justice,” which tells convention that “this is our moment to offer healing and to bring our laws closer to the justice and equity that God envisions for us.” The other, “Gathering of Gen X and Millennial Clergy,” asks the church to work for gender equity and “expend resources to create a more equitable church.”Resolutions D016 and D020 are among the 24 resolutions proposed by the members of the special House of Deputies Committee on Sexual Harassment and Exploitation, appointed in February by the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president. They focus on inclusive theology and language; disparities in pay, hiring, leave and pensions; changes to the Title IV disciplinary process and training; truth and reconciliation; and systemic social justice beyond the church.– The Rev.

The engine of my automobile is heavy. True. It does not follow that every part of my engine is heavy. that is false. Also, second, just because some members of a group have a certain characteristic it does not follow that all members of that group have that characteristic. Yes, there are humans who are murderers, It does not follow that all humans are murderers. In a word, we want to avoid both the Fallacy of Division and the Fallacy of Composition.

Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET July 5, 2018 at 5:29 pm Grateful for Julia Ayala Harris & all the others speaking on their and others behalf; grateful too that The Episcopal Church at Convention is listening. Holding all gathered at General Convention in prayer as we seek the forward in Christ. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Press Release Service Rector Shreveport, LA July 6, 2018 at 12:00 pm Mr. O’Brien, these are not “old issues.” I am a second vocation priest and in the 10 years I have been ordained, I have been stalked, verbally sexually harassed, and groped by lay men in every congregation I have served in TEC except for two. Lay men act with impunity as they are not subject to disciplinary actions under our canons except for my excommunicating them for their actions which makes me the “bad priest” for doing so. It’s high time our church addresses this current issue.last_img read more

Pyongyang judges asked to be lenient with two American journalists

first_img North KoreaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Reporters Without Borders urges the North Korean judicial authorities to be lenient with the two American journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, whose trial is scheduled to begin tomorrow in Pyongyang. Lee and Ling, who work for California-based Current TV, have been held since 17 March and face sentences of up to 10 years in prison with forced labour on charges of entering North Korea illegally and “hostile activities.” In fact they were just trying to cover the trafficking of North Korean women across the border between North Korea and China.“We appeal to the North Korean judicial authorities to show the utmost clemency and we hope the trial will result in the acquittal and release of the two American journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the judges trying the case to follow the example set by their Iranian counterparts, who released US journalist Roxana Saberi last month.”The press freedom organisation added: “If these two TV reporters made a mistake by getting to close to the North Korean border, they did so solely for journalistic purposes and not for political reasons or for the purposes of espionage.”Reporters Without Borders backs the many demonstrations in support of Lee and Ling that are being organised today by relatives, friends and fellow journalists in Washington, New York, Chicago, Birmingham, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles.Lee and Ling, who are both married, were allowed to speak with their families by telephone last week. “We had not heard their voices in over two and a half months,” Ling’s sister Lisa said. “They are very scared, they are very, very scared.” Lee is the mother of a four-year-old girl.In a letter to her sister, Ling wrote: “I try very hard to think about positive things, but sometimes it is hard to.”Reporters Without Borders and the International Women’s Media Foundation today handed in a petition at the North Korean Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York calling for the immediate release of Lee and Ling. It was signed by more than 1,800 journalists, bloggers and free speech activists.The Swedish ambassador to Pyongyang, Mats Foyer, who represents US interests in North Korea, met with the two journalists on 1 June for the third time since their arrest.US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the charges brought against them are “baseless.”Ling (who is of Chinese origin) and Lee (who is of Korean origin) had travelled to the North Korean border from inside China as part of their reporting on the trafficking of North Korean women, and were arrested there by North Korean border guards.

Annakurban Amanklychev (photo), Ogulsapar Muradova and Sapardurdy Khajiyev have been held since June.“We are appalled by the attitude of the Turkmen authorities, who are flouting the basic rules of justice and human rights with impunity,” the press freedom organisation said. “We are very worried about the coming trials. The defendants have not even been able to see their lawyers and there has been a complete lack of transparency and due process in the preparation of the prosecution case.”According to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the authorities transferred Muradova’s case to the Ashgabat municipal court. Khajiyev’s trial on a charge of “possessing an illegal weapon” is due to being on 25 August. The charges against Muradova and Amanklychev, a contributor to the French production company Galaxie-Presse, and the dates of their trials are not yet known but their relatives believe they could also start before the end of the month.Muradova, who is Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty’s correspondent in Turkmenistan, has on two occasions been allowed to receive the food and medicine sent by her family, but her lawyer has never been able to see her.All three are International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights activists. They were taken to the headquarters of the national security ministry (the former KGB office) following their arrests between 16 and 18 June. They appear to be facing long prison sentences.
