Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Shares in digital learning provider Learning Technologies Group (LSE: LTG) registered double-digit gains early this morning following the publication of its latest set of full-year results and, perhaps more importantly for holders, a reassuring update on current trading. Is the AIM-listed, growth stock now a solid buy? Here’s my take.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…“Ahead of expectations”They may feel irrelevant at the current time, but numbers go some way to demonstrating just how popular e-learning is becoming.Revenue jumped 39% to a little over £130m in 2019. Encouragingly, 74% of this was recurring and 80% was generated outside of the UK. Stable sales and geographical diversification feel like great qualities to have these days.The headline number, however, must be the whopping 316% rise in pre-tax profit to £14.3m. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this was said to be “ahead of expectations“.While not a stock for income seekers, I think it’s also worth noting the decision to raise the final dividend by 43% to 0.5p per share. If that’s not a sign that business is going well, I don’t know what is. The only snag is that shareholders won’t receive this payout until after the coronavirus storm has passed.In addition to withholding the dividend, Learning has made big cuts to spending. Salary increases have also been paused, bonuses postponed, some directors have deferred their entire salaries and recruitment has been frozen. All told, the company has estimated that these actions will save over £20m. Despite boasting net cash of £3.8m at the end of last year, this all seems very prudent to me. Worth buying?The share price of Learning Technologies has staged a minor recovery since markets collapsed last month. Nevertheless, it’s still far below February’s peak of 172p. Does this make the stock a buy? Possibly.One big positive is the company’s belief that the coronavirus has not had “a material impact” on its performance and that recurring revenues will be “largely unaffected“. The only slight negative is that new business wins might be pushed back as customers take steps to conserve their finances. Compared to the troubles experienced by some listed companies, this is hardly disastrous news.As a sign of just how useful the company’s services can be, it’s worth noting that Learning has been working with a long-term client to produce healthcare courses for all the former doctors and clinicians returning to the NHS. Considering this, I really can’t see demand going anywhere but up once things get back to normal. On the flip side, the valuation still looks pretty full. Based on current estimates (which must be taken with a pinch of salt), its stock was priced at 24 times earnings before markets opened. That’s expensive during the good times, let alone the bad. And although no one has a crystal ball, I suspect those ‘bad times’ will continue for a while yet.In sum, I’m certainly optimistic on the Brighton-based firm’s ability to continue increasing revenue and profits over the medium term. Would I want to buy much at the current price, ahead of what some economists are forecasting to be the worst crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s? Probably not.If I were to get involved, buying in instalments over the next few months feels like the best way of mitigating risk.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Photo: Sarabinh Levy-Brightman[Episcopal News Service – Cambridge, Massachusetts] If you walked past the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard University on a recent evening, you might have heard chanting, music and bells, smelled incense and gotten a glimpse of robed figures. There was a liturgy going on in the backyard of the chaplaincy’s stately colonial building, but not one of the Eucharistic rites found in the Book of Common Prayer. It was a chaplaincy-staged experimental performance art piece that deconstructs and reassembles the Eucharist through a feminine lens.“LadyMass: Rites of the Emerald Table,” performed over the past two weekends, is a walk-through experience with multiple stations, each with a performer the audience can interact with. Over the course of about a half-hour, audience members meet several recognizable, yet twisted characters that incorporate aspects of Christianity and pop culture. And though it may not be apparent at first, the basic elements of the Eucharist are there: the Word and the offering of food and drink.The Rev. Rita Powell. Photo: The Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard UniversityThe Rev. Rita Powell, who organized the collaborative project, began envisioning something like it when she became Harvard’s Episcopal chaplain two years ago. Powell hired Meredith Wade as the chaplaincy’s Kellogg Fellow in part because of their shared interest in art as ministry.“We wanted to use the creative arts to reach out beyond what the borders of the church are,” Powell told Episcopal News Service. “We didn’t just want to be a place that welcomed people who already knew they wanted to be Episcopalian, but we wanted to actually be a presence on campus in a visible and not entirely churchy way.”Powell and Wade enlisted Kirsten Cairns, the founder and artistic director of Enigma Chamber Opera, to develop their ideas into a production. In her previous position at Trinity Church in Boston, Powell had worked with Cairns, who brought her extensive theater experience to projects like a dramatized Good Friday service.“One of the elements that was important to me is just thinking about how to make the arts accessible and how to help people engage their creative selves, even if that’s not what they do for a living or if it’s not what they’re formally trained in,” Wade said.The three women drew inspiration from “Sleep No More,” an adaptation of “Macbeth” in which audience members walk through a hotel and learn parts of the story from performers throughout the building.Their ideas centered around staging something like the Eucharist, but infused with elements that churches don’t usually associate with it, like femininity and spectacle. Cairns looked to the medieval church’s mystery and morality plays for ideas.“The church has a tradition of playing with revelry, pageantry, the absurd, in order to communicate and teach lessons, especially when you go back to a time where most people didn’t read and the mysteries of the actual Eucharist were not for most people to see, so in some ways we’re just going back to our roots here,” Cairns told ENS.“LadyMass” was set up in the backyard of the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard. Photo: Kirsten CairnsPowell, Wade and Cairns all performed in the show, along with Powell’s daughter and several students, one of whom plays a character based on the White Rabbit from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Students also created the sound effects for another station, at which a dark, robed figure appears to worship a toy Elmo that speaks various excerpts from the writings of Evagrius, the fourth-century Christian mystic, newly translated by a Harvard Divinity School professor.Cairns emphasized that the discomfort audience members may feel at some of the imagery is meant to be thought-provoking, not disrespectful.A cloaked performer venerates Elmo during“LadyMass.” Photo: Sarabinh Levy-Brightman“When you say that you’re being absurd in the liturgy, people might have an initial reaction of ‘That’s sacrilegious,’ ‘That’s irreverent,’ ‘That’s offensive,’ ‘You’re mocking the church,’ which is absolutely not what we were doing,” she said. “In many ways, I think there’s a greater reverence in saying, ‘These are profound mysteries that we cannot possibly understand.’”Cairns wanted to unsettle the audience’s ideas about what the Eucharist is and who can participate in it, “playing with what is being offered, who is offering it and what is being consumed.” To that end, there are three simultaneous “altars” with performers evoking aspects of mythical feminine energy not typically considered appropriate for church, such as eroticism and anger.“We’re harkening back to the time when the church was more comfortable with embracing the feminine strength and power within it,” she said.“We have three very different celebrants at these three altars, and none of their gender is simple, but all of them are in some kind of feminine register,” Powell explained. Two performers – one male and one female – are dressed as Dorothy from “The Wizard of Oz,” but with very different takes on the female archetype. While one happily offers up sparkling wine and chocolate to the viewer in a consecration-like ritual, the other malevolently thrusts wrappers or other food-related trash into the viewer’s hand, symbolizing the opposite of the Eucharist: an empty vessel.A performer dances in the tent during “LadyMass.” Photo: Sarabinh Levy-BrightmanAt another station, the audience is invited into a tent, where a woman dancing seductively exchanges the trash for a piece of paper with a spiritual quote written on it. The exchange, Cairns said, makes the audience member an active participant rather than a spectator.“For a lot of churchgoers, I think that the Eucharist is very passive, that the priest is the one doing the work, all I do is receive and walk away,” Cairns said. “What if it’s more about what you bring to the table, what you give? I hope and believe that what we’ve done over the last two weekends has given a lot to people, but I know for sure that they have given a lot to us.”Using a grant from the Diocese of Massachusetts’ young adult ministry network, Powell commissioned composer Adam Jacob Simon to write original music, including a Mass setting, that reflected the progression through the space and added an overall atmospheric tone.For a set, the team took advantage of chaplaincy’s backyard, where plans were already underway to build a neon-lit “prayer tent” art installation and worship space. So when COVID-19 hit, there wasn’t much that needed to be changed. They had even been planning to hand out Mardi Gras-type face masks to attendees before the pandemic made masks a necessity.The Rev. Rita Powell celebrates the Eucharist in the “prayer tent.” Photo: Shikun Zhu“It was very fortuitous that this piece was ready for the situation of the world,” Cairns said. “It was one of the few art projects that didn’t get canceled when the pandemic came along.”After the performance, attendees were invited to rest in the garden and write down reflections in a book. The creative team was surprised by the variety of responses, including many that expressed discomfort or confusion but also insight. They also heard from attendees that they were simply excited that something like this was being offered. People walking by were even lured in by the smells and sounds, Cairns said.“It seems like folks were ready for some type of artistic experience, some type of embodied experience that was COVID-conscious and accessible to them,” Wade told ENS.Though this round of performances is over, “LadyMass” is not, the team said.“We had a filmmaker come and work with us on filming it, and she’s working on putting something together over the summer that Rita and Kirsten will take on the road in the fall, so that folks who weren’t able to come experience it in person have still some way to access the experience,” Wade said.“The piece isn’t over,” Cairns said. “Like an insect, it’s gone through one stage of its form, and now it’s going to transform into something else.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

June 8, 2021 Find out more MaliFranceAfricaEurope – Central Asia Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists Armed conflictsImpunity Help by sharing this information A demonstration was held outside the main law courts in central Paris at 9 a.m. today to urge the French and Malian judicial authorities to do much more to shed light on the murders of Radio France Internationale journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in Mali more than three years ago.​ January 13, 2017 Paris demo demands truth about murders of two journalists in Mali With press photographers in attendance, more than 20 people took part in the protest organized by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the Association of Friends of Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon, and RFI’s Society of Journalists. Limited judicial cooperation between the French and Malian governments have blocked progress in the investigation into the double murder of the RFI journalists in Kidal, in northern Mali, on 2 November 2013. The French government has classified many relevant documents as “defence secrets,” thereby preventing their use by the judicial authorities, while the security situation in northern Mali has prevented officials from ever visiting the crime scene. No witness as so far been questioned. “This inertia is unacceptable,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We demand answers and more transparency in the handling of this investigation. There are people who have information. It must be possible for them to be questioned by the judicial authorities so that we can finally learn the truth.” RSF, which defends freedom of information, has registered as interested civil party in the case in order to be able to play an active role in support of the Association of Friends of Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon.

Required fields are marked * Aspiring designers travelled overseas to Havana and Berlin in an exclusive Art Center program that not only helped to broaden student knowledge, but also brought back an up close and personal look inside the culture of the school’s foreign counterparts in the form of a dual exhibit showcasing international collaboration.Designmatters is Art Center’s award-winning social impact department that enabled students to present Fresh Eyes Cuba in conjunction with the Testlab Berlin City_X exhibit that is set to open to the public Dec. 7.“Art Center has a strong commitment for international engagement. You cannot be an informed designer if you are not global. Projects like these that celebrate collaboration and connection are more important than ever,” said Designmatters Co-Founder and Vice President Dr. Mariana Amatullo.Fresh Eyes Cuba is a 14 week transdisciplinary ArtCenter studio course organized around a 10-day immersive trip to Havana, Cuba that took place in early October. Faculty and students lived in Havana and collaborated with the Instituto de Diseño (ISDi), Cuba’s design school.“Cuba has a very, very rich and sophisticated visual culture and we felt that we had a lot to learn as both faculty and students from our Cuban counterparts,” said Amatullo.Under the guidance of ArtCenter faculty, communication and industrial design students from ArtCenter and ISDi engaged in an experiential workshop, building interactive pop-up installations that attracted 200 people.“It’s designed as a multi-sensory environment that the audience will experience—almost trying to recreate through the eyes of the team that went there and how they experienced the city,” explained Amatullo.This final exhibition at ArtCenter will feature installations that are a reflection of and reaction to the students’ individual and collective experiences in Cuba’s ecosystem of innovation and creativity at this historic moment in time.“I think the passing of Fidel Castro adds another sense of timely component to this work, but even before his passing, the reason we looked at developing this project was because we were really interested in pushing the envelope in terms of thinking about what it means to have very sensitive and informed artists and designers at Art Center,” said Amarillo.The students documented every encounter they made through video and photography, according to Graphic Design Department Chair Prof. Nikolaus Hafermaas.“All of these installation have to do more or less with the Cuban students’ pent up desires to speak out and to address issues within the Cuban society,” said Hafermaas. “It’s a super-immersive kind of experience.”Haftermaas, who is a Berlin native, was integral in establishing the exhibits other half—Testlab Berlin City_X—a student conceived sustainable urban design for Berlin’s “Smart City” initiative that will replace an out-of-date airport, tap the regions robust hacker and start-up culture through Socialtecture design strategy to capture Berlin’s spirit in an inclusive, connecting vein, according to a press release.The creative focus of this 90-day studio in the German capital is the re-imagination of the soon-to-be-closed Tegel International Airport as a Smart City. Named the “Urban Tech Republic,” this ambitious private/public initiative will transform the former inner city airport into a research venue and model city for sustainable green technology on an urban scale.“This specific project is extremely timely because the last remaining inner-city airport, Tegel International Airport, is about to be closed down. With the closure of the airport, there is prime real estate in very close proximity to the city that needs to have a a re-use,” said Hafermaas.ArtCenter students conceived CITY_X, a design model that opens the smart city initiative towards participation by Berlin’s population at large, especially tapping into the rich fabric of the creative industries, start-up entrepreneurs and hacker culture.“Our students immersed themselves with Berlin creative types and forged relationships to create something spectacular,” said Hafermaas.Using real-time and Socialtecture-based design strategies, the students capture Berlin’s authentic creative spirit and transform it into four distinct campaigns for outreach and inclusion. CITY_X allows the Urban Tech Republic to grow vital connective tissue to the population of Berlin, according to a press release.“These exhibits really represent Art Center’s commitment to think about international opportunities for our students in a non-traditional way. It’s a way we can educate this next generation of designers in a truly global manner,” said Amatullo.ArtCenter College of Design’s Fresh Eyes Cuba and BERLIN CITY_X Exhibition & Celebration opens Wednesday 4:00pm to 8:00pm at 1111 South Arroyo Parkway and 8:00pm to 10:00pm at 950 South Raymond Avenue.The Dual Exhibit is free and open to the public.For more information visit Design One of a Kind Dual Exhibit Brings Cuba and Berlin to Pasadena Story by BRANDON VILLALOVOS | Photography courtesy ArtCenter College of Design Published on Wednesday, December 7, 2016 | 1:51 am Herbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty’First Daughters’: From Cute Little Kids To Beautiful Young WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Gorgeous Looks That Have Been Classic Go-tos For DecadesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHere Are Indian Women’s Best Formulas For Eternal BeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Real Truth About The Pain Caused By MicrobladingHerbeautyHerbeauty More Cool Stuff EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

first_imgOlder workers lose in landmark caseOn 7 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. The Government has won its appeal against a tribunal ruling that could havegiven hundreds of thousands of older workers new employment rights. In August, the tribunal gave two pensioners, John Rutherford from Essex andSamuel Bentley from London, the right to claim unfair dismissal and redundancypay. The pair won, under European law, after arguing that they suffered indirectsexual discrimination because more men than women over 65 continue to work inlater life. But the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) argued at appeal that it wasincorrect to conclude there was sexual discrimination against men because ifyou looked at the workforce as a whole, there was no discrimination by the law.If Rutherford and Bentley’s claim had been upheld, the case would have hadimplications for hundreds of thousands of workers and their employers. Manyother similar cases were put on hold pending the outcome of this case. Paul Quain, the Charles Russell lawyer who represented Rutherford, said thepair are considering going to the Court of Appeal and perhaps further. “This is an extremely important case,” he said. “Peopleworking after retirement age are an increasingly significant part of theworking population.” But Sam Mercer, director of the Employers Forum on Age (EFA), said thatseeking to abolish upper age limits for unfair dismissal by bringing a sexdiscrimination claim is not the best way to improve the situation for olderworkers. “[It] is better for both employers and employees to wait until theupper age limit on unfair dismissal is removed as part of new age laws that areto be introduced in 2006,” she said. “Employers are planning for these new laws, but cannot be expected tomake fundamental changes to employment policy and practice overnight.Introducing policies that are well thought through is preferable to theconfusion that case law decisions can cause.” The full decision is available at Quentin Reade Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

The tally was roughly 38 percent off from last year’s figure of $1.6 billion — which itself was half the total from the previous year.Here are the five largest portfolio sales of 2020:1. Silvercup Studios | $482MBuyer: Hackman Capital, Square Mile Capital ManagementSeller: Stuart and Alan SunaBrokerage: Eastdil SecuredHackman Capital and Square Mile Capital Management’s latest studio acquisition has been home to productions including “Mad Men,” “Sex and the City,” “The Sopranos” and “The Devil Wears Prada.”Hackman and Square Mile, which had previously teamed up on two big studio buys in 2018 and 2019, paid $482 million for Silvercup Studios in Astoria.

first_imgRates of pup production and causes of pup mortality, recorded in a designated study colony on Bird Island, South Georgia, from 1989 to 2003, were used to evaluate the factors influencing the growth of the population of Antarctic fur seals, Arctocephalus gazella (Peters, 1875). The mean number of pups produced per year was 680 (range 444–822) with a mean survival rate of 77.6% (range 52.6%–92.8%). Starvation, arising from reduced food availability within the mothers’ foraging area, was the most frequently recorded cause of death and was positively correlated with the overall rate of pup survival, although it showed no relationship with the number of pups produced. However, traumatic injury showed a local relationship with seal density, increasing significantly with increasing numbers of seals born. This suggests that environmental processes that reduce the availability of prey to lactating mothers, rather than space limitation within colonies, are the limiting factor in the population increase of Antarctic fur seals at South Georgia. The spatial scales over which such processes operate, relative to the local-scale effects of densities of animals within colonies, have important implications for the future expansion of the population and the resultant trophodynamic interactions.last_img read more
