Morgan Sindall is set to announce the coup to the stock market today, in a move that will secure jobs for around 2,500 of Connaught’s 4,000 social housing staff. The firm’s Staffordshire-based public sector arm Lovell has taken on the work for between £20m and £40m, and expects to generate around £200m a year from the contracts. The purchase comes just days after most of Connaught’s business fell into administration, and rivals have been quick to pounce on its remaining contracts with local authorities. KPMG said it has already had numerous expressions of interest for the stricken firm’s operations, and that it would keep the business trading until the contracts had been sold. Rival property firm Mears declined to comment on Connaught’s remaining contracts yesterday. KPMG and Morgan Sindall declined to comment on the sale. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Thursday 9 September 2010 8:44 pm Tags: NULL

Tesco’s (LSE: TSCO) shares might be looking cheap, but it’s a Footsie stock I’m not prepared to go on a dip-buying spree with. The broader grocery sector has been in ruder health more recently, but the UK’s biggest chain isn’t reaping the fruits of this upsurge.According to Kantar Worldpanel, Britain’s supermarket sales rose at their fastest rate since November during the 12 weeks to 23 February (up 0.7%). But Tesco wasn’t one to benefit from this improvement, its sales dropping another 0.8% from the same 2019 period. Instead, it was the discounters Aldi and Lidl who grabbed the plaudits. According to Kantar, sales at these banners leapt 5.7% and 11.4% respectively year-on-year.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…Following the herdAggressive expansion, major improvements to product lines, and the decline in consumer spending that’s driving demand at the ‘value’ end of the market continues to boost the German operators at the expense of their established UK competitors.It’s clearly a case of ‘if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’ for the likes of Tesco. And today the business announced it was extending its bid to attract customers back through its doors through fresh rounds of price cutting.Through its ‘Aldi Price Match’ programme, Tesco will match its discount rival on hundreds of own-branded goods as well as an assortment of branded goods, such as Warburtons bread and Silver Spoon sugar.On the ropesIt’s another sign of how far the supermarket’s star has fallen. Tesco — which not that long ago dictated the direction of the British grocery market — has been trying to cling onto its competitors’ coattails rather than being proactive and leading the charge.It’s a strategy that, if previous attempts are any guideline, isn’t likely to succeed. Mass discounting by all the ‘Big Four’ operators over the past decade has done little to stem the charge of Lidl and Aldi. Instead, it’s a move that puts even more pressure on Tesco’s already wafer-thin profits margins.Latest financials again illustrated the troubles Tesco is having to defend its market share. It’s had worse results, sure, but news like-for-like sales dropped 0.2% in the 19 weeks to 6 January shows customers continue to leave despite efforts to cut prices, improve branding, employ more staff on the shop floor, and the like.Cheap for a reasonAlthough City analysts expect Tesco earnings to rise a healthy 8% in the fiscal year to February 2021, I think the chances of current estimates being blown off course are extremely high. As well as those aforementioned market pressures, the spread of coronavirus here and abroad threatens to significantly disrupt supply chains. This could also have huge ramifications on near- to medium-term profits.So forget about its low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13.1 times, I say. Tesco’s cheap, but this is a reflection of its weakening influence in an increasingly-cutthroat market. I wouldn’t touch it with a bargepole. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares ISA watch!

According to one survey, 47 per cent of Zambian women have experienced some form of sexual or physical violence since the age of 15 . This violence includes beatings and rape, with some attacks ending in the woman’s death.All five Anglican dioceses in Zambia are taking action to combat gender-based violence, including setting up women’s development groups to raise awareness of the issues, provide support, and help women to establish an income and a degree of independence. The church will also be offering support and counselling. And there will be training for church workers in how to speak effectively about gender-based violence in churches.The Britain and Ireland-based Christian charity Us (formerly USPG) is supporting this work, which will be launched in Zambia with a march and public rally organised by the Zambia Anglican Council on International Women’s Day (8 March 2013).Janette O’Neill, Us Chief Executive, said: ‘This is an issue that is massively affecting people’s lives, not just in Zambia, but in every country. When women are financially dependent on men, have little or no access to information about their rights, and are not given a voice in their community, they are vulnerable to ill-treatment and violence. The church is well placed to take a stand against this because it serves the whole community – regardless of gender.’She continued: ‘Jesus was a radical in many ways, including with regard to women. In John 4 we can read about how Jesus interacted with the woman at the well – a woman who was rejected by her community and forced to draw water in the heat of the noonday sun. Jesus did not condemn or reject her and instead chose to reveal to her that He was the Messiah. Jesus affirmed women, included them, respected them and refused to condemn them when the crowd challenged him to do so. The heart of God is that every person – whether female or male – should experience the fullness of life Jesus speaks about in John 10:10.’Grace Mazala Phiri is the National Programmes Director for the Anglican Church in Zambia and an Us partner.She said: ‘Anglicans are taking action to support women and rebuild relationships, so women can reclaim their streets, their communities, their places of work – even their homes – as places which they can use in safety.’The Most Revd Albert Chama, Archbishop of Central Africa, said: ‘We need to support women all the way until the goal of equality is achieved in all spheres of life: education and property ownership.‘We have to be vigilant and make sure that the voice of the Church is heard when we speak on behalf of the downtrodden.’Notes for Editors · Us (formerly USPG) is a Christian charity working alongside churches and communities around the world. We work to share the love of God in practical ways, and see lives transformed.· Us website: www.weareUs.org.uk· The work Us is supporting in Zambia will include:o Providing information: women will be equipped with more information about their rights to enable them to feel safer and so that they know they can seek help if they do not feel safeo Overcoming stigma: women will be helped to overcome the shame they feel when they are victims, which prevents them from speaking out.o Financial security: women will be supported to have better access to income and property. Some women fail to speak out because they fear their husbands will be imprisoned, which means family income will drop.o Challenging stereotypes: the stereotypes against women, which leave them susceptible to mistreatment, will be tackled in communities.o Providing new role models: positive male role models who support, encourage and respect women will be identified and provided to young men.

Heroin overdoses increase 62% in 2017From the Orange County Sheriff’s OfficeRecognizing a significant increase in heroin overdoses, Orange County Sheriff Jerry L. Demings is warning and reminding citizens of its danger. “People who buy illegal drugs are playing Russian Roulette with their lives,” says Sheriff Demings, “they have no idea what the drugs are cut with or their potential potency.”OCSO narcotic agents have informed the Sheriff that from January 1st through February 15th of this year there have already been 101 drug overdoses compared with 63 this time last year, a 62% increase. Of the 101 drug overdoses, 70 are heroin-related compared with 28 during the same period last year, this is a 150% increase.Overdose deaths have decreased 56% over the same time period; swift deputy response and the use of Narcan have likely prevented many deaths. Since July 1, 2016, OCSO deputies have used Narcan 55 times.Sheriff Demings counsels, “stay away from illegal drugs, they could very likely kill you.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

The site for this private house is a sloped, wooded property located in an almost rural area that affords botch seclusion and panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The main volume of the house stands as a glass prism, L-shaped in form to separate its distinct spatial zones. An opaque plane envelops the house on the south and east sides, shielding the property from the street and neighboring houses, and anchoring the house to the landscape. The dialogue between this primary wall and the glass block of the house takes place in the interstitial space bridging the interior and exterior through a series of terraces and controls the infiltration of light and views through selective openings. The house is bisected by a circulation spine that connects to the stair hall and divides the house into its two spatial parts: a solid zone along the south, marked by a rhythm of structural piers, and a void zone to the north, accentuated by a lighter steel structural system. A glass façade envelops both zones, creating a sensation of movement that is independent of and balanced by the solid elements within.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe lower level of the house, containing the technical spaces and parking, is carved into the site on the north side, opening to a sloped yard with a sauna, fitness area, and access to the garden above. The primary public spaces are located at the ground level, with an open kitchen, guest suite, and children’s playrooms along the south side, and the living and dining spaces along the north side. The bedrooms and master suite are placed along the south side of the upper floor, shielded from the exterior by the primary wall along the entire façade and from excessive sunlight by a system of glass louvers. Opposite these rooms a study, library, and lounge area overlook the double-height living space below.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Maintenance-Free House / Arkitema ArchitectsSelected Projects2014 Wolfson Economics Prize Exhibition Explores the Potential of Garden CitiesEvent Share Projects Area: 975 m² Area: 975 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: Houses Luxembourg Year: 2012 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/546533/luxembourg-house-richard-meier-and-partners Clipboard Luxembourg House / Richard Meier & PartnersSave this projectSaveLuxembourg House / Richard Meier & Partners Architects: Richard Meier & Partners Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/546533/luxembourg-house-richard-meier-and-partners Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Luxembourg 2012 CopyAbout this officeRichard Meier & PartnersOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesLuxembourgPublished on September 15, 2014Cite: “Luxembourg House / Richard Meier & Partners” 15 Sep 2014.

#HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Print Email TAGSfeaturedJordan PerezMusic LimerickShare a Dream Foundationspinal muscular atrophy type II Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick Linkedin NewsJordan’s dream comes trueBy Guest Writer – August 16, 2013 670 Twitter Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April WhatsApp Jordan and the Shaggy Angels team.A DREAM came true for little Jordan Perez (5) when he received a welcome fit for a soccer superstar this week.The Manchester United fan, who suffers from the rare genetic disorder – spinal muscular atrophy type II – travelled by Garda escort as the guest of honour at this year’s Jeff Power Soccer Tournament in Portland Park.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The day was organised by the Castletroy-based Share a Dream Foundation, which has been making dreams come true for hundreds of sick and disabled children for 22 years.Jordan’s mum, Sinead from Sixmilebridge said the day was amazing. “We travelled in the back of the police car and they had the sirens going. When we got to the pitch everyone clapped as he got out of the car and he gave a pep talk to the winning team and lead them on to the pitch. He kept saying afterwards ‘They won because I told them to’. I cannot thank Share a Dream enough for giving us these memories”.Jordan attended the event with his mum, dad Hulio, big brother Ryan (8) and new-born baby sister Zoe. The family also had a VIP lunch in the Clarion Hotel where Jordan met with Mr World Kamal Ibrahaim.The little lad – who is attending Sixmilebridge National School – had a particularly difficult time when he suffered a cardiac arrest in May of last year and remained in hospital for two months.His Mom said: “Jordan was diagnosed when he was ten months old and doctors gave him a matter of months. But he proved them wrong. Even through all the harrowing hospital visits, all the grinding daily physio and the things his condition denies him, he loves life and is never sad. He is amazing and Share a Dream have been remarkable”For more information see www.shareadream.ie and www.facebook.com/shareadream RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday No vaccines in Limerick yet Advertisement #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Previous articleHonours for JFK and Brian BorúNext articleFoy Vance finds hope in a hard place Guest Writerhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook
By Digital AIM Web Support – December 16, 2020 Facebook Facebook SportsJackalopesLocal News WhatsApp After having one weekend series postponed and another end in a pair of overtime losses, the Odessa Jackalopes are preparing to return to home ice for the first time in three weeks to get things back on track.Up next for the Jackalopes is a three-game series with the Lone Star Brahmas that begins Thursday at 7:15 p.m. at the Ector County Coliseum. This will be the first time this season that the two teams will face off against each other.Jackalopes head coach Jason Fortier said during his weekly press conference Wednesday that he was able to take away a number of positives in this past weekend’s series against the Shreveport Mudbugs despite falling 3-2 in overtime on consecutive nights.“I think the energy is good,” Fortier said. “It’s a long trip back from Shreveport but it’s something where we can take some pride that we worked hard.“We had a lot of good clips to reinforce what we’re teaching. This week has been pretty high-energy and high-paced.”The Jackalopes got off to good starts against the Mudbugs in both games by scoring first and also built a 2-0 lead at the end of the first period of Saturday’s game.Shreveport was able to rally back and eventually won the game and Fortier said that how that game played out provided a good teaching moment for his team.“We just had a fire in our belly and played with enthusiasm,” he said. “It’s not that we got worse as the game went on. I think we got a little complacent.“Hats off to Shreveport because they just kept plugging away, kept working and came back and matched that work ethic against us.”Being able to maintain those leads and keep that intensity is something that Fortier notes has been a point of emphasis this week. The Jackalopes get to stay home for the next three weeks with this weekend’s series against Lone Star, an off week with the Christmas holiday and a three-game series against Shreveport to begin 2021.“We just want to preach composure and to stick with what you’re doing,” Fortier said. “Sometimes, teams get a lead and they start to think that they have to defend more and change that mindset. You still want to attack and there really shouldn’t be a change in the system.”>> FINDING A GO-TO SCORER: Charlie Banquier and Joey Musa became the latest Jackalopes to score their first goals of the season in Friday’s game, becoming the 14th and 15th different players to score for Odessa this season. Fletcher Anderson and Jacob Badal are tied for the team lead with four goals each.Fortier said that it’s encouraging that different players are stepping up. At the same time, he’s also looking for someone to break through as that go-to option. “It’s a pro and a con at the same time,” he said. “It’s great to see guys from your fourth and third line score but you want to find that consistent goal scorer coming from your top two lines.>> GETTING A CHANCE TO PLAY: The series against Wichita Falls previously scheduled for Dec. 4 and 5 was the second time this season that the Jackalopes have had games due to COVID-19 concerns from the opposing team.Fortier said that it’s something he tries not to think about it too much and works to focus on the task at hand and dealing with it if an issue comes up.“Does it get frustrating? Sure. But the blessing is that we still get to come to the rink and train,” Fortier said. “We’ve treated it as something that we can’t control and we’re not going to focus on it.”>> Follow Tony Venegas on Twitter at @OA_TVenegas WhatsApp Pinterest TAGS Twitter Twitter Previous articleOAT12xx20_OlgaSalazarSubstituteNext articleOAT121720Jackalopes01 Digital AIM Web Support NORTH AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE: Road trip proves to be good learning experience for Jackalopes Pinterest
