The broker argues that the firm’s share price corresponds to consumer confidence, which continues to soften in the long-term. Profit at the company is also linked to oil prices, with every $10-per-barrel rise knocking 25 cents from earnings per share, the broker believes. SHANKSLiberum Capital has initiated coverage of the waste company with a “buy” recommendation and a target price of 160p. The broker sees good growth opportunities in the UK and Canada. However, the group’s main assets are in the Benelux region, and the broker argues that an improvement in the bloc’s property market is needed before the company recovers profitability. FIRST QUANTUMNumis rates the mining group a “buy” but has reduced its target price to £70 from £71 following a visit to the company’s nickel projects in Australia. However, the broker believes the firm has priced the production value of some projects cautiously, and that the company stands a good chance of beating estimates once the mines move into full production in the next couple of years.

Le Conseil exécutif commence à se préoccuper de la Convention…

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC de Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Jun 12, 2017 Featured Jobs & Calls [Episcopal News Service – San Juan (Porto Rico)] Le Conseil exécutif de l’Église épiscopale vient de passer trois jours ici pour réunion historique, marquée par la convivialité et la détente, au cours de laquelle les membres ont pris comme ligne de mire la prochaine Convention générale, dans tout juste un an.C’était la première fois que le Conseil se réunissait dans un diocèse de la Province IX depuis février 2008 et c’est sans doute la toute première réunion à Porto Rico. L’Évêque Primat Michael Curry a déclaré lors d’une conférence de presse le 11 juin, après la réunion, qu’il était important que le Conseil soit venu dans ce territoire américain « alors que Porto Rico est en proie à de grandes difficultés et cherche à discerner son avenir ».Les Portoricains votaient ce jour-là pour devenir le 51e  État du pays. Le scrutin était controversé et a attiré le nombre le plus faible de votants depuis 1967. La plupart des observateurs disent que le Congrès des États-Unis qui est contrôlé par les Républicains n’accèdera jamais à la demande des Portoricains, en partie parce que le territoire penche vers le Parti démocrate.L’économie de Porto Rico est en récession depuis près d’une décennie, un grand nombre de résidents vivent dans la pauvreté et le mois dernier le territoire s’est vu contraint à la plus grande faillite du marché obligataire municipal de toute l’histoire des États-Unis. Cette faillite a détruit l’épargne de nombreux portoricains. La majorité des résidents sont irrités par le fait qu’ils payent intégralement pour Medicare, Medicaid et la Sécurité sociale mais qu’ils ne peuvent toucher que peu de prestations comparé aux autres citoyens des États-Unis, prestations qui sont à présent frappées par des réductions de la part de l’Administration Trump.Michael Curry a déclaré que le diocèse est « sérieux lorsqu’il se dit être un instrument » capable de combler les lacunes pour faire face aux besoins en services médicaux et sociaux ».Alors que le Conseil exécutif se prépare à la 79e réunion de la Convention générale du 5 au 13 juillet de l’an prochain à Austin (État du Texas), le budget global de l’église retient beaucoup l’attention. Son Comité permanent conjoint Finances pour la mission (FFM) élabore le budget prévisionnel qui sera soumis à l’approbation de l’ensemble du Conseil. Selon la Règle conjointe II.10.c.ii (page 227 ici), le Conseil doit remettre le budget prévisionnel au Comité permanent conjoint Programme, Budget et Finance (PB&F) au plus tard quatre mois avant le début de la convention (essentiellement au plus tard en février de l’année de la convention). Le Conseil a deux autres réunions avant la date limite, du 18 au 21 octobre et du 22 au 24 janvier.Le comité FFM a passé la majeure partie de la réunion de Porto Rico à continuer de trier les grandes quantités d’informations reçues lors des premières étapes du processus budgétaire qui ont été consacrées à une étude sans précédent du fonctionnement et du financement de la mission et du ministère au niveau de toute l’Église. Le comité s’est également réuni de son côté mi-mai, une démarche peu commune de la part de l’un des comités du Conseil et prévoit d’autres réunions dans les mois à venir.« Nous soumettrons à votre examen un budget préliminaire dans un avenir proche », a déclaré Tess Judge, la présidente du FFM, le 11 juin à l’ensemble du Conseil.Lors de la conférence de presse qui a suivi la réunion, la révérende Gay Clark Jennings, présidente de la Chambre des députés, a fait l’éloge du processus budgétaire jusqu’à présent. « J’ai vu des processus budgétaires controversés, difficiles, pénibles, épuisants », se remémore-t-elle de son temps passé au conseil. Le « travail budgétaire est dur, en particulier lorsqu’une organisation a d’un côté de grands rêves et de l’autre de fortes contraintes concernant le montant des fonds » disponibles.« Cette fois-ci, c’est un partenariat entre PB&F, le Conseil exécutif, le personnel de l’église tout entière et les dirigeants », poursuit-elle.Gay Jennings reconnait qu’il y a quelques inconnues dans le processus pour l’instant « mais l’ambiance n’est pas tendue, c’est vraiment très créatif ».Article complet en anglais.

Election 2018: Women dominate NW Orange County elections

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply Trump now has an intern US AG. Sessions out, but rumor mill says that Rudy G., Trump’s own lawyer, may be the next US attorney general. Also, former AG of Florida, Pam Bondi’s name is being tossed around also….OMG! Please enter your comment! Reply Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia November 7, 2018 at 11:56 am Watching the election result numbers last night, I said to myself, something funny is going on, when the results would show one side get a certain percentage total, and the other side, another percentage total, and the two percentages together, would add up to way more than 100 percent! That was crazy! Even our local news anchors were like, what is going on??? Only in Flori-duh!…….And how about the report that a Missouri citizen who went to their poll to vote, on election day, and one of their poll workers asked that citizen, if they were a caravan member? In Missouri???? And how about the report that Brian Kemp, running for Governor in Georgia, and who just happened to be over the State of Georgia elections, was turned away from voting at his polling place because he voter id was invalid??? Elections bring out the whackos! November 8, 2018 at 8:43 am Another thing, these endorsements of Rick Scott, and his good character….please, spare me! Funny, how he has announced his win, for Senate, when the votes haven’t been confirmed yet,…..I hope and pray he has to eat crow, if the votes tally out differently….lol Reply Mama Mia November 7, 2018 at 12:02 pm The Democrat’s House power starts next year, so look out for the dirt to start up again very soon in the Trump administration. Just had the election, and already there is talk of a government shut down, under Republican control! I voted for Gwen Graham for Governor of Florida, but voted for Andrew Gillum after she lost. I was proud of the way Gillum talked in his concession speech. A class act, that is what he is. I didn’t want De Santis, but the people voted, so that is life, and we will see, if he lives up to the seat! The Anatomy of Fear The day after the mid-term election…. big shakeup!…..US Attorney Jeff Sessions resigns, and Trump announces a nomination replacement very soon! November 7, 2018 at 12:13 pm You are right! Gillum showed EVERYONE there is NO EXCUSE to murder the English language. I’ll bet when somebody calls him on the phone, he does not respond, “Who diss?”. When somebody says they are from some company or organization, he probably doesn’t ask, “Who you witch?” If he can properly use the English language so can everybody born in this country! Reply November 8, 2018 at 8:52 am The big surprise to me, was Seminole County, Florida turning blue, that is a shocker! Congratulations! November 7, 2018 at 12:04 pm Mama Mia You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here 14 COMMENTS Mama Mia I’m confused….did Amendment 1 pass or not? I know it had to be 60 percent approval to pass. I never could get the straight on that one. Why should the less valuable home owners, renters, and small business owners have to absorb the taxes to give the well- off people a tax break? Ridiculous! I am thankful the greyhound amendment passed, the 13th one. GreyY2K USA has worked so hard, for so long, pushing to end the cruelty involved on greyhound racing, not just this state, but other states, and internationally also. I used to go to the greyhound racing tracks and bet, but I quit going, and later learned the cruelty involved, a lot of info, I wasn’t aware of, but GreyY2KUSA informed people of that was happening behind the scenes. I really do wonder about what will happen to the 8000 plus greyhounds though. Adopting them out would be wonderful, but that is so many dogs, to find homes for. Reply November 7, 2018 at 5:08 pm I am very happy that women are winning many of the elected offices. I would be lying though, if I stated that I support the Republican ones in this election, but I am a Democrat, and that is expected, don’t you think? I don’t hate you all, it is not personal, nothing against you all but partisanship, but I am Democrat, and do not switch parties, if I have other options, and won’t ever switch my registration to another political party, as far as I foresee, and I have been registered as a Democrat since, what, 1983, I believe it was?….I’m not switching! Or if the shoe was on the other foot, or other side, and if you are a registered Republican, you wouldn’t be happy if a Democrat won, now, would you? My take on the mid-term election results are, I can live with the results. The Democrats gained the House power, and a lot of seats plus power to bring forth investigations, is my understand. Would I have been happier, if more Democrats had of won….yes, especially here in Flori-duh, but that is life. David Letterman has stated he never voted for a Republican, ever, as he is a Democrat. I can’t say that myself, as I have voted for Republicans, in local non-partisan races, where there actually wasn’t much choice. I DO NOT vote for Republicans in state and national offices though, and I am not apologizing for that! I very well remember when all the House members voted AGAINST equal pay for men and women doing the same jobs, including women House members, who voted that way…unbelievable to me, in this era!!!! I distinctly remember this, I am certain. These deplorable postings I read from certain Trump lovin’ Republicans are sickening, about how they hate people for being Democrats. It is ridiculous. I am thankful I am not wired full of hate like that. To hate a person, and I mean really deep down hate a person, just because they are of a different political party is sick. REALLY SICK. GET A LIFE!

Senate seat, is one woman that I certainly am sorry to hear won! She is NO friend to horses and horse rescue groups! She is in favor of disgusting practices such as horse soring, and in favor of sending horses off to horrifying deaths at slaughter houses, either off to foreign slaughter houses, or she would probably be in favor of opening them back up once again here on US soil. Along with pet ponies, carriage horses, burros, wild mustangs, racing horses, and big draft horses like the Clydesdales. In fact, any horses or equines, pretty much! And eating horse meat is not the normal here in the US, although it does occur, but it is dangerous to eat horse meat steaks, because of all the vaccinations that horse have been injected with, and other chemicals the horses are subjected to, and it is toxic to eat their meat……….

Thank you for all you did from sign waving to door knocking. We did this together!

Senator Lindsey Graham of SC has fought hard to stop cruelty to horses, in fact, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham sponsored anti-horse slaughter legislation, and earned the Humane Society’s Humane Horseman of the Year Award, for his efforts to stop the horror of horse abuse, and slaughter. This is why I respected Senator Graham even though I am Democrat, but here is what is so astonishing to me is that now, Senator Lindsey Graham stopped in to Tenn. and actually campaigned and rallied for Marsha Blackburn! I don’t know why, as he has worked so hard to stop the passage of horse slaughter, then goes trotting off to Tenn. and pulls for her to win….UNBELIVABLE to me!!! Look up these subjects up for yourself, horse slaughter, Marsha Blackburn and horses, and horse soring, if you don’t understand what horse soring is……Florida has a lot more horses than people realize! It seems as if Senator Lindsey Graham has changed for the worst, since his good friend, Senator John McCain passed away. And his actions during the Kavanaugh hearings were OUTRAGEOUS, IMO, to say the least! Now I hear he might be in line for consideration for US Attorney General to replace US AG Jeff Sessions?

Colombian hunger strikers inspire auto workers

first_imgLeft, Jorge Parra of GM hunger strikers in Colombia with Martha Grevatt at Sept. 10 Detroit meeting.WW photo: Abayomi AzikiweAuto workers the world over have been inspired by Asotrecol — the Association of Injured Workers and Ex-workers of General Motors Colmotores in Colombia — whose president, Jorge Parra has been on hunger strike in Detroit for over 70 days.Parra’s comrades have lived in tents outside the U.S. Embassy in Bogota for a year and a half. Their goal is to get jobs or an income for fired workers who were dumped after being hurt by the fast pace, long hours, and conditions that a typical auto worker can endure for only a few years.For the past five months Parra has been in the U.S. trying to get GM to just negotiate.GM clearly takes advantage of the anti- union environment in Colombia, the most dangerous country in the world for unionists. Yet even where GM workers have unions, they are seeing their live­lihoods and rights being taken away. GM workers and other auto workers on three continents — initially drawn together through the international campaign to win justice for the injured Colombian workers — called a “Global Day of Action Against the Attacks of GM” on Jan. 23.On Jan. 22, the Metalworkers Union of Sao Jose dos Campos staged a 24-hour strike to protest impending layoffs. These Brazilian auto workers burned tires and blocked a major thoroughfare for an hour to oppose company plans to permanently terminate 1,800 workers on Jan. 26. The union’s vice president, Herbert Carlos da Silva, called offers to keep the workers if they accept a pay cut “blackmail.” The union threatened another strike on Jan. 28.A mass rally that same day in Bochum, Germany, protested plans by GM’s Opel division to close their plant by 2016. On Jan. 23, as they have been doing every Wednesday for some time, Opel’s workers used their lunch break to hold a protest rally.Workers at the Aulnay-sous-Bois plant of PSA, a French company in a “Global Strategic Alliance” with GM, have been holding strikes to oppose plans to close their plant.In the U.S., actions in solidarity with Asotrecol, the Brazilian Metalworkers and all GM workers under attack were held in Detroit; metropolitan Washington, D.C.; Portland, Ore.; Birmingham, Ala.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Wichita, Kan. In Detroit, Asotrecol supporters performed a “mic check” and banner drop at the Chevrolet display of the North American International Auto Show — one of the biggest and most widely attended auto shows in the world. The Portland Auto Show was hit with a similar action on opening day Jan. 24.In Colombia, Asotrecol’s demonstration outside the plant had the backing of Sintraime, a union of workers in railway and various industries, as well as Sintra GMcol, a new union inside the GM plant inspired by Astotrecol.GM workers in Argentina and Spain and Ferrari workers in Italy, also held actions.Manifesto defends GM workersAn “International Manifesto in Defense of Workers at General Motors” was developed with input from workers in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany, France and the U.S. The document protested plant closings and mass layoffs and called for governments to protect job security, take action for “reduction of working hours without loss of pay,” safe working conditions, an end to “precarious [temporary] work and the reduction of rights,” and reinstatement of the fired injured Colombian GM workers. (rf-news, de, Jan. 22)The Manifesto charged that “GM has operated a world-wide restructuring plan. They want us to pay for a crisis we are not responsible for. Such attacks result in worsened working conditions, reduction of labor rights, pay cuts, full or partial closure of productive units and thousands of layoffs around the world.”The Manifesto optimistically proclaimed that “it is possible for industrial workers across the world to unite to defeat even the big international monopolies such as GM. Therefore, we must unite, step by step, through the coordination and unity of struggles around the world.”On Jan. 28, the Brazilian GM workers voted to accept a negotiated agreement to cancel the mass layoffs. The 600 workers currently on layoff are collecting their wages, but only for two more months. “We have now entered into another case of struggling,” the union vice president told this writer, “to avoid the dismissal of 600 workers.” nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Vintage charm

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 2:31 am Sunday, December 7, 2008 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Vintage charm Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Email the author Latest Stories Skip By Jaine Treadwell Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Many of the Christmas cards have notes written on the back and Howard said she enjoys reading the Christmas greetings and well wishes that were extended a hundred years or more ago.“Back years ago, people often didn’t have a nickel to buy Christmas ornaments so they made them,” she said. “They made scrap and tinsel ornaments. They took pieces of paper – or scrap –and decorated them with glitter and tinsel to make pretty ornaments for the Christmas tree. And, they would also cut Christmas motifs off Christmas cards and from magazines and make ornaments from them by adding glitter or tinsel. The process was much like we used to do in Bible school.”Taking a cue from those “vintage” methods of making ornaments shine and sparkle, Howard adds glitter and tinsel to the postcards that she uses to decorate her family Christmas tree.Each year, Howard has a thousand postcard ornaments from which to choose. She hangs them on the tree until she can’t find another empty spot to hold one.“I don’t have a favorite postcard,” she said. “They are all so pretty and so interesting. It would be hard to pick a favorite. They are all my favorites. (It’s) kind of like your children: You don’t have a favorite; you love them all.”Even though Howard doesn’t have a favorite vintage Christmas postcard, she does have a favorite ornament. It’s a simple little glass bell that is easily lost among the many vintage dime store ornaments that adorn the tree.“It’s a simple little bell with a glass clapper,” Howard said. “You just don’t see those anymore, and it’s a very special ornament and my favorite.”As much as Howard enjoys decorating her family Christmas tree with vintage ornaments, she might enjoy sharing that love of old Christmas with others even more. For that reason, she agreed to share her vintage Christmas ornament collection with the public through the Johnson Center for the Arts’ “Christmas Tree Extravaganza,” which is the featured exhibit at the Center through the Christmas season.On the Square Antiques in Troy sponsors one of 12 trees that are displayed at the Christmas Tree Extravaganza, and it is decorated with many of Howard’s ornaments.“Gail Thompson at On the Square Antiques did much of the decorating,” Howard said. “She hand-glittered the Christmas postcards that we chose to use as ornaments and put the ribbons on,” Howard said. “We also used many of the vintage glass ornaments and about 400 feet of garland and wood and glass beads. The tree is topped with an angel with a paper face and a dress made of angel hair.”Beneath the tree is an 1880s Victorian rocking chair and a doll bed from the same period.Teddy bears add a special touch to the vintage Christmas that has been recreated for the enjoyment of all of those who visit the Johnson Center for the Arts.There are 11 other trees donated by Terra Cotta Home and Outdoor Market that have been decorated for the Christmas season. Everyone is invited to visit the Johnson Center for the Arts on East Walnut Street in Troy and enjoy the spectacular display of Christmas trees. Admission is free. “I’ve been collecting Christmas ornaments since I was a child,” Howard said. “I was so fascinated by the bubble lights that my grandmother had on the tree that I’ve never gotten over it. And, I loved going to the V.J. Elmore dime store with my mother and buying ornaments.“Back then, you could buy individual ornaments for like five cents or two for a nickel if you didn’t get the fancy ones. But if you bought a nickel ornament, you had gotten the top of the line. You could get ornaments in boxes, too, but my favorites were the individual ornaments in the little bins with glass sides. I loved Christmas decorations and ornaments then and I still do.”For Howard, the Christmas postcards are just another facet of the Christmas collecting that began with those shiny, glass ornaments from the dime store.“I’ve been collecting vintage Christmas cards for a long time,” she said. “They’re all from the late 1800s and early 1900s, and I find them at different places like antique shops and on the Internet. Some have been given to me. But they all depict how Christmas was a long time ago and how we imagine that Christmas should be.” Howard collects postcards from the early 1900s. She has about 5,000 of them and, of those, about 1,000 are Christmas postcards.At Christmastime, she takes selected postcards from safekeeping, ties ribbons to them and hangs them on her Christmas tree.The tree is adorned with about 350 postcards and many other vintage ornaments that she had collected through the years. Each ornament is attached to the tree with a bow and a memory. You Might Like Charity League bake sale is Wednesday Tasty treats for a good cause.

Neal “Fro” Evans To Replace Scotty Zwang As Drummer Of Dopapod

first_imgDopapod has just announced that original drummer Neal “Fro” Evans will be rejoining the band on a full-time basis, replacing current drummer Scotty Zwang. Zwang joined the band after Evans had to leave the band for personal reasons, and helped the group record 2014’s Never Odd Or Even, while touring with the group non-stop across the country the last few years.Evans will rejoin the group for their upcoming performances at the Resonance Music & Arts Festival, as well as the Catskill Chill Music Festival. We look forward to seeing Evans rejoin Dopapod and seeing where the group goes from here, and wish Zwang the best of luck in his future musical endeavors. Here is what the group had to say, via their Facebook page:Friends, Family, and Fans,As we step out of another incredible summer and look towards what is sure to be an exhilarating Fall Tour, there is news that we’d like to share. Neal “Fro” Evans is returning to Dopapod behind the drums. For those unaware or needing a refresher, Fro was our drummer for the years that the band was really shaping its sound and stepping into full stride. We came to a bit of a crossroads with Neal back in 2013 and he needed time away from the band for personal reasons while we wanted to continue playing and growing as a band. Having already been good friends with Scotty Zwang, when the time came to look for a replacement, he made for an incredible fit. Since that point in time, the band has experienced an incredible ride of musical, personal, and career-building growth. As we count our blessings for every moment that we’ve experienced while surrounded by a wonderfully supportive family of fans, we’ve also found ourselves recounting the original chemistry that undeniably forged the path that we’re grateful to be walking. That has landed us in the present moment of welcoming Neal back to the fold and him being more than happy rejoin. Scotty will surely be staying on the map with other exciting projects and will always be a part of our family. We wish him the best and encourage everyone to support his new endeavors. In our time playing together, Scotty has truly become one of our best friends and we cherish the time he spent in the band with us. Neal’s first shows back will be Resonance Music & Arts Festival & Catskill Chill Music Festival.
