BEST OF THE BROKERS

first_img ASSOCIATED BRITISH FOODSMorgan Stanley rates the retail group “equal-weight” with a target price of £11. The broker has trimmed its earnings estimates by 2.5 to three per cent over the next three years and cut its target price by 50p following the firm’s recent results. Morgan Stanley believes that UK like-for-like sales are now flat, with sustained double-digit growth in Europe, and expects margin contraction of around 1.2 percentage points this year.INMARSATCitigroup has started covering the satellite communications firm with a “buy / medium risk” rating and a 12-month target price of 850p. The broker sees Inmarsat as a relatively low-risk play on a maritime and civil aerospace recovery, given its exposure to emerging markets. Citi adds that Inmarsat’s land mobile division is a play on global instability, which it thinks can lift first-half numbers thanks to unrest in the Middle East.HMVUBS rates the struggling retailer “neutral” and has cut its 12-month target price from 17p to 25p. The broker forecasts that HMV’s net debt will increase to more than £130m in the first half of 2011, making it likely to breach covenants. UBS thinks that the firm would be in a more stable financial position if it issued equity to pay down its debts, given the uncertainty around its declining sales.

New guidance on charity grants to non-charities

first_imgNew guidance on charity grants to non-charities The Charity Commission has issued draft guidance for trustees of charities that want to make grants to non-charitable organisations.The guidance brings together existing commission guidance that sets out the key principles that trustees must follow when making decisions about grant funding non-charitable organisations.The guidance states that trustees must be able to show how any grant to another organisation (whether a charity or not) furthers their charity’s purposes.In addition, a charity grants can only be made for activities that in principle it could carry out itself.Trustees must also comply with the powers and restrictions in their charity’s governing document and ensure that the recipient of the grant understands and agrees the aim of the grant, how this is expected to further the charity’s purposes, and what the grant can and can’t be used for.Sarah Atkinson, director of policy and communications at the Commission said:“Trustees have clear responsibilities when deciding where their funding goes, but it is particularly important that they recognise any risks that come with making grants to non-charitable organisations. We want this guidance to set out clear boundaries for trustees to ensure that charity funds are applied properly and to help them if things go wrong or circumstances change during the life of a grant.”The draft guidance is available on the .gov site and is under consultation until 8th April.

Government and Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) urged to stop attacks on the media

first_img Receive email alerts to go further Reporters Without Borders called today on Nepalese Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa and the leader of the country’s Maoist rebels, Baburam Bhattarai, to end a two-month wave of murders, kidnappings and arrests unleashed on journalists by both sides in the conflict.It expressed grave concern at the escalation of violence and threats against journalists and restrictions on press freedom since the Maoist Communist Party (CNP-M) ended a ceasefire on 27 August, as each side suspected the media of being agents of the other. Gyanendra Khadka, of the government news agency Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS), was brutally murdered on 7 September by rebels who tied him to a post and publicly cut his throat in front of villagers in Jyamire, Sindhupalchowk district (northeast of Kathmandu), where he was also a teacher. Khadka, who was dragged from a classroom during a lesson, was well-known for his articles in national and local papers and for several years was the correspondent of the daily Nepal Samacharpatra, one of the country’s biggest newspapers, in the Melamchi valley. Resham Birahi, national leader of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ), was threatened on 28 August by rebels in Dhamboji Chowk, Nepalgunj (in the western district of Banke) after criticising the government-rebel fighting. The rebels told him the war would be a decisive one and that he could not write what he pleased about them.In the southern town of Janakpur, journalists told the correspondent of Reporters Without Borders that they were under regular pressure from the rebels, who demanded greater coverage of their activities and also prevented news being sent out.The security forces are also cracking down hard on journalists and briefly arrested 30 of them who demonstrated in Kathmandu on 11 September against the murder of Gyanendra Khadka. The protest was peaceful but police cited a recent ban on public demonstrations.Subhashankar Kandel, editor of the weekly Jana Dharana and former correspondent of the Nepal Samacharpatra in the western district of Baglung, was kidnapped from his home on 9 September by a dozen men in civilian clothes. Kandel, who also works on a new privately-owned Kathmandu TV station, Image Metro Channel, was apparently suspected of rebel sympathies. His house was searched and all pro-communist literature taken away by security forces. P.B Diyali, who works for the popular daily Blast Time in the eastern district of Sunsari and had been arrested several months ago, has been forced to flee to the capital.Laxmi Ubhayay, Same Thapa and Chitra Chaudhary, journalists in Dhangadi (in the far western district of Kailali) suspected of Maoist sympathies, were threatened with arrest by security police, who forced them to flee to Kathmandu.Ram Hari Chaulagain, of the weekly paper Sanghu, was kidnapped on 28 August in the New Baneswar suburb of Kathmandu by a group of people in civilian clothes who pushed him into a car near the paper’s offices. He is reportedly being held at the Hanuman Dhoka district police station in Kathmandu. The same day, Bal Kumar Khadka, of the weekly Khulla Pratispardha, was arrested and held for three days at a police station in the western district of Pokhara.

The breeding and maintenance of sledge dogs

first_imgOne of the logical reasons for exploration is to collect the maximum of information in a specified time; therefore planning should be based on an appreciation of the pregnable gaps in as many fields of science as possible. Present Antarctic exploration is neglecting the biological sciences and in particular those of an experimental nature. Figures published for the contingents from the British Commonwealth, France and Norway at present in Antarctica include twenty-three physicists, thirteen geologists of different varieties and only two biologists. This neglect probably arises from a too rigid conception that field biology is concerned with classification and with natural history. Antarctica, however, offers great possibilities, and even certain advantages, for much biological work, and in particular its simplicity helps ecological thought and nutritional experimentation.last_img read more

School Takeover And Safety Bills Easily Approved In One-Day Special Session

first_imgMay 14, 2018 By Abrahm Hurt and Adrianna Pitrelli TheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS — Monday’s special session came with no surprises as the four bills that legislators failed to pass on the last night of the regular session were all easily approved and signed by the governor.“Today, Indiana lawmakers aligned to state and federal tax law to streamline the process for Hoosier families and business, provided more funding to support schools in need and improved school safety statewide — all in one day as planned,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb.Legislators met for a little more than six hours to discuss bills from school safety to updating the state’s tax code, but the most heated debate took place over House Bill 1315, the Gary-Muncie school takeover legislation.HB 1315 establishes a process to single out struggling schools. It would allow the state to take over the Gary and Muncie community schools, and it authorizes a $12 million loan to the Muncie school system.Proponents of HB 1315 said the school takeover would allow for a unified approach to solving the two districts’ financial problems. But opponents countered that the voices of the community could be silenced because the elected school boards would be overridden.Rep. Sue Errington, D-Muncie, said she wanted to be a part of the process of writing the bill, but she was ignored by the author, Rep. Tim Brown, R-Crawfordsville.“I am just concerned about the democratic processes with this body,” she said. “It’s Muncie and Gary right now, but who’s going to be next?”Many legislators were concerned that citizens would no longer have the right to elect a school board.“Their right to select local representatives is being taken away from them,” Vernon Smith, D-Gary, said. “If there has been some mismanagement, the people of both cities have committed no wrong so, why are we punishing the average citizen?”Ball State will appoint a newly created seven-member school board to replace the current elected five-member school board, and Gary’s school board will be changed into an advisory board.Senate Democrats also voiced strong opposition to the bill.“The bill says that it allows the district to fire up to five percent of their teachers and staff,” said Sen. Lonnie Randolph, D-East Chicago. “The bill takes down the elected school board to make an advisory board — so does your vote really count?”Sen. Tim  Lanane, D-Anderson, said while he is happy for Ball State because this is something they have advocated for, he does not support the bill.“There will be less than 90 days before the fall school year once this passes because of the special session so the community must quickly unite over this decision,” he said. “While I disagree with this, I am here to assist Ball State University in any way we can get this job done for the students and families.”The bill passed the House 63-30 and in the Senate 34-14.Ball State President Geoffrey Mearns said the university’s board of trustees will meet Wednesday to discuss the whether or not they accept the responsibilities, and if they do, Ball State will assume responsibility starting July 1.Lawmakers also approved House Bill 1230 which provides $5 million for school safety that the governor requested during the regular session. The bill also allows school corporations and charter schools to obtain funding advances of up to $500,000 for school security equipment and capital purchases, but total advances are not allowed to exceed $35 million. The bill passed the House 96-1 and the Senate 47-1.House Minority Leader Rep. Terry Goodin, D-Austin, voted for the bill but said it still does not go far enough.“Five million dollars divided by all the schools that will be eligible for the benefit, $7,352.94, is what that $5 million is boiling down to,” he said. “We’re getting ready to work on bills that are going to give multi-million dollars in tax cuts to billion-dollar corporations, and we think that securing our schools is worth $7,352.94.”In other action:House Bill 1242 is a tax bill which exempts trucks, pavers, vehicle parts and fuel purchased by a hot mix asphalt company from Indiana’s 7 percent sales tax, which will cost the state around $5 million per year. It also includes a provision requiring that employees of the Department of Revenue and subcontractors be fingerprinted to comply with federal requirements. The bill passed the House 74-20 and 41-7 in the Senate.House Bill 1316 will update the state’s tax code to comply with recent federal changes. The bill changes to state policy to the current federal policy that allows one to use money in a 529 college savings plan on K-12 education. The bill passed the House 75-22 and the Senate 40-8.FOOTNOTE: Abrahm Hurt and Adrianna Pitrelli are reporters for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.center_img FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
