Profits up at London Capital

first_img Share Tuesday 17 August 2010 7:53 pm Tags: NULL Profits up at London Capital spread betting company London Capital Group, said first-half adjusted pre-tax profit rose 12 per cent yesterday, helped by strong spread betting performance, but cut its interim dividend by 60 per cent. “If the rest of the year follows the route of the first half, we would expect to be paying quite a substantial dividend at the year end,” said chief executive Simon Denham.He said he was optimistic due to the continued growth in the company’s core business and the launch of its Contract for Difference (CFD) platforms. London Capital launched two CFD platforms in the second quarter of 2010. One is an extension of its spread betting site and the second will target retail clients in the Far and Middle East.The company, which offers online spread betting, foreign exchange and broking services, has just opened its first office outside Europe, in Australia.For the six months ended 30 June, adjusted pre-tax profit rose to £4.2m from £3.8m a year ago. And sales increased 61 per cent to £20.9m. However, the firm’s statutory pre-tax profit for the first half fell 74 per cent to £856,000 due to an impairment charge of £3.2m. The company cut its interim dividend to 1p per share from 2.5p per share a year ago. Encouragingly, average daily volumes rose 22 per cent to 31,950 trades in the six month period while average revenue per user almost doubled, from £599 to £1,051. Cenkos Securities is confident London Capital will meet its full-year pre-tax profit estimate of £6.3m, giving earnings per share of 11.2p and a final dividend of 2p.Denham said the company’s CFD product launched in Australia was very competitive.“We are not expecting much more than covering costs by the end of the year [regarding the CFD platforms]”, Denham said, adding that he expects profits from it in 2011.

Two years after factory collapse, Bangladeshi workers address students

first_imgLexington, Ky. — Mahinur Begum went to work on the morning of April 24, 2013, even though she knew she shouldn’t.“We knew the building was unsafe, but we went anyway,” she recalled. Her workplace was a garment factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, called the Rana Plaza. That day, during her shift, the building collapsed.Speaking to a packed room of students and activists on March 3, Begum described the collapse of the Rana Plaza building. “The first thing we heard was the sound. Then I was struck by falling machines and concrete,” she said through an interpreter. “After 18 hours, I was pulled out of the rubble. I had lost a toe,” she added. A total of 1,129 people were killed. Begum was among the more than 2,500 who were injured. She spoke at the invitation of UK (University of Kentucky) United Students Against Sweatshops, a student organization that is lobbying the university to break ties with garment companies who refuse to adhere to new safety regulations.Rana Plaza stands as the worst disaster in the bloody history of the Bangladeshi garment industry. Kalpana Akter, a trade union activist who is traveling with Begum, noted that 80 percent of Bangladesh’s foreign currency comes from the garment industry. Many legislators are also factory owners. In response to a question from the audience, Akter said that no mainstream political party in Bangladesh is concerned with workers’ rights. The owner of the Rana Plaza has been linked to the ruling Awami League.Conditions for garment workers are Dickensian. Both Begum and Akter said that 14-hour shifts are routine, and that factories are rife with verbal and physical abuse. An average month’s pay is the equivalent of $68, which meant that when Begum was released from the hospital, she had to borrow money from her neighbors to pay for medicine.When asked what people in the U.S. could do to help, both women responded simply, “We need your solidarity.” More information about USAS’s “End Deathtraps Campaign” can be found at is a member of FIST – Fight Imperialism, Stand Together – residing in Lexington, Ky.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USDA Celebrates 150 years

first_img SHARE [audio:|titles=USDA Celebrates 150 years] The United States Department of Agriculture marked its 150th year of existence on Tuesday. Created by President Lincoln an May 15, 1862, the agency has grown to become one of the largest and most far reaching departments of the federal government.   USDA has a presence in almost every county in the nation, plus offices in about every nation on earth. It serves breakfast and lunch to 32 million school children every day, and 1 in 7 Americans receives food assistance from USDA.  Yet, as Secretary of Agriculture Tom Villsack pointed out during a celebration in Washington, at its core, USDA is still there to serve farmers, “The USDA annually provides credit to get people into the farming business and works to create markets both domestically and internationally to make sure farm families have a source of income.”  Vilsack says the productivity of American agriculture, fostered in part by USDA, has given the US food security. Praise for the Department poured in from all sectors of agriculture. National Corn Growers Association President Garry Niemeyer, “We have evolved from a time when corn planting used mule-drawn plows to an era of technically sophisticated tractors, multi-row planters, and GPS systems.  Over the past 150 years, the USDA has helped advance American agriculture, spur economic growth, conserve natural resources, and build stronger communities.” Steve Wellman, President of the American Soybean Association, said, “USDA has worked alongside soybean farmers for decades in the best interest of agriculture, developing international markets , fostering rural development, encouraging conservation, alleviating hunger, improving nutrition, and enhancing food safety.” American Farm Bureau Deputy Executive Director of Public Policy and former USDA senior staff member, Dale Moore, says this new bio-based sector represents the mission of USDA for the next 150 years, “It’s not just about the gasoline or the fuel that we put in our cars and trucks. It’s also about wind energy. It’s about biomass conversion, so that we’re making full utilization of the various crops and commodities that we’re raising to improve the economy.” The original purpose of USDA was to foster research to increase food production.  Vilsack said the agency has been very successful at accomplishing that mission, “In my lifetime, corn production has increased 300% and soybean production 200%.” He said this kind of productivity has not only allowed American agriculture to feed the world but has now created a new bio-based economy. By Gary Truitt – May 15, 2012 Facebook Twitter USDA Celebrates 150 years Senator Debbie Stabenow, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, used the occasion of the USDA anniversary to call on Senate leadership to bring a new Farm Bill to the Senate floor, “It is critical that we pass the Farm Bill before the current bill expires in September. We passed a very strong bill out of Committee, with real reforms that cut the deficit by $23 billion – and we did it in a bipartisan way.” Villsack noted that one of the challenges his agency faces in the next 150 years is bringing a new generation of farmers onto the land.  During his remarks, he urged Congress to make changes in the tax laws to make it easier for farms to be transferred to the next generation.

Russia: Kaliningrad editor held for past 100 days on trumped-up charge

Victor Ledenev, the head of the local branch of the Investigative Committee, which is responsible for investigating the most serious crimes in Russia. Organisation RSF_en News Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing The editor of the weekly Novye Kolesa, Kaliningrad’s oldest independent newspaper, Rudnikov is well known for determined investigative reporting that had already resulted in two murder attempts against him and many prosecutions. Arrested on 1 November, he was transferred a month later to Moscow, where he is currently held under a provisional detention order valid until 1 April. The violence to which he was subjected at the time of arrest has not been investigated, although members of the Federal Security Service (FSB) can be heard in a video held telling their superiors they gave him a good beating. A former FSB member, Ledenev was Chechnya’s prosecutor-general from 2008 to 2013, a period marked by systematic impunity for crimes of violence attributed to close associates of the region’s strongman, Ramzan Kadyrov. The crimes included well-known journalist and human rights defender Natalia Estemirova’s murder in 2009. All this did not prevent Ledenev being promoted to head the Investigative Committee in Kaliningrad in 2013.

Colleagues point out that Novye Kolesa had revealed in June 2017 that Gen. Ledenev owned a luxurious country home that had not been declared, and that he therefore had every reason to get rid of Rudnikov. “What with arbitrary provisional detention, trumped-up charges and impunity for police violence, Igor Rudnikov’s case is emblematic of what goes on in Russia,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We demand, in the strongest possible terms, this journalist’s immediate release and the withdrawal of all charges against him.” Help by sharing this information News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown to go further Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption His arrest, combined with the confiscation of Novye Kolesa’s server and data storage devices, has been a blow for the newspaper. Retail sales have not fallen, but advertisers have backed off and donations have dried up, so the survival of Kaliningrad’s leading independent publication is not assured. Читать на русском / Read in Russian Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its call for the immediate release of Igor Rudnikov, an independent newspaper editor in Russia’s western enclave of Kaliningrad, who will complete his 100th day in detention on a trumped-up charge of extortion on 9 February.last_img read more

News blackout accompanies military crackdown on protests

first_img US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association are outraged by the measures adopted by the military junta to prevent journalists and activists covering the on-going crackdown on protests. Most of the country’s mobile phone lines have been cut and the Internet network has been drastically reduced. Charges by police and troops on demonstrators in Rangoon, especially near the Shwedagon pagoda, have left several dead, while dozens of people have been arrested and injured.”The generals have not hesitated to use force to repress peaceful demonstrations widely reported in the international press,” the two organisations said. “Knowing it is protected by China and the international community’s impotence, the junta has cut the country off from the rest of the world in order to better crush the nascent saffron revolution. We appeal to the international press to step up its coverage by trying to get journalists into the country so that this dramatic situation is not played out behind closed doors.”At 3 p.m. today, the military authorities disconnected most of the country’s mobile phone lines, preventing journalists and demonstrators from reporting on the crackdown launched by the security forces in the heart of Rangoon. Several journalists have been injured today, including Than Lwin Zaung Htet of the magazine The Voice.The authorities have closed Internet cafés in Rangoon while the government-controlled Internet Service Provider, Bagan Cyber, reduced Internet traffic speed. It is getting harder and harder to send or receive photos and videos sent from Burma. Dozens of foreign journalists have been refused tourist visas by the Burmese embassy in Bangkok.Burmese blogs, websites and Internet cafés have been closed for the past few days, while it is becoming increasingly difficult to call Burmese mobile phones from abroad, especially to Ba Maw, Mandalay and Myitkyina. Khin Mar Lar, the wife of journalist and former political prisoner Nyein Thit, was arrested at her Rangoon home yesterday when police looking for her husband with the intention of arresting him.A group of journalists and intellectuals, the Burma Literary Association, launched an appeal on 24 September for the release of political prisoners and for national reconciliation. Despite the threats from military censors, they added their voice to the protest movement by Buddhist monks. Created on 20 September, this organisation recalls a similar one set up during the 1988 protests. One of its initiators, journalist U Win Tin, has been imprisoned since July 1989.”We know this will be a difficult battle, but the brutal dictatorship’s power has been challenged by another power, the power of love, and it is this power that will win the day,” said Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association.The military junta imposed a curfew on Rangoon and Mandalay on 24 September and banned gatherings of more than five people.

But it will also keep alive the memory of teenagers who lives were lost so tragically, said Jennifer Carney Garrett, an event coordinator.

It might be about the accident or it might be a way to encourage other teenagers to be safe drivers. Just whatever the family wants to include.”The stories and photographs may be dropped off at the Piggly Wiggly on Highway 231. The photographs should be in an envelope or plastic bag.center_img Skip Print Article Memory book to tell story of teen drivers Published 11:31 pm Friday, November 4, 2011 “Stories may be faxed to 770-7447 and the picture emailed to [email protected], if that is more convenient,” Garrett said.Last year’s Teen Driving Event was the first of its kind in Pike County and attracted more than 300 participants.Garrett said the event was such a great success because of the volunteer support.“We had many generous sponsors and again will be asking for monetary donations and door prizes,” she said. “We thank all of those who have already stepped up and volunteered their time, talents and services. And, we thank in advance, the volunteer support we will receive this year.”Donations to the Pike County Teen Safe Driving event may be mailed to Jennifer C.

‘One night, one storm killed them both’: Man loses both his sister, brother-in-law in deadly Tennessee tornadoes

first_imgBrett Carlsen/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — At least 24 killed, 38 missing after Tennessee tornadoesTornadoes swept through communities in and around Nashville, reduced buildings to rubble and left dozens dead with more missing as residents already talk about rebuilding.When Larry Redmond stepped onto his sister’s porch Wednesday, there was nowhere to go.The three-bedroom home where he had visited his sister, Cathy Selby, 63, and brother-in-law, Keith Selby, 65, countless times was completely blown away by the tornado that ripped through Putnam County, Tennessee, the day before.All that was left were pieces of cinder block strewn on the ground and a view of the devastation.The Selbys were also gone. They died after being thrown from the home, Redmond told ABC News correspondent Victor Oquendo.“One night, one storm, killed them both,” he said.At least 25 people were killed in the tornado and 18 of those were from Putnam County, the county’s Mayor Randy Porter said Wednesday. Three people are still unaccounted for in the area.Dozens of homes were wiped out as the twisters touched down in the hours after midnight, tearing through Nashville and neighboring cities.Redmond said he got the call about the tornado around 3 a.m. from his nephew, the son of his sister and brother-in-law.“Brian, my nephew, called and said his mother’s house was gone,” Redmond recalled. “None of their home was on the property. It was on [another] property.”After searching through the debris, Redmond eventually found his sister and brother-in-law’s bodies about 60 yards away from where their home used to stand.“If somebody’s sick a long time in your family, you kind of expect it, but when you wake up the next morning and your family’s gone … that’s devastating,” Redmond said.His nephew is expected to survive, he said, though he broke his collarbone.Looking out on the patio in front of what used to be his sister’s home, Redmond was still in shock.“It’s completely gone. … It looks like a bomb,” he said.Other families in Putnam County were also picking up the pieces Wednesday.Jean Gregory told ABC News that she and her husband managed to survive the storm on the floor of their bedroom, with her husband Frank lying on top of her.When they eventually went outside knowing it was safe, she saw the damage done and felt lucky to be alive.“I can’t believe it. I would have never thought we’d get out of here alive, but we did,” Gregory said.Her home was left in shambles, with the roof of her kitchen and living room entirely gone.“It’s really bad. You want to go look, but then you want to come right back out,” Gregory said.She has been sifting through the debris trying to find valuables. She was grateful to find a journal her husband has held onto from the Vietnam War and is hopeful to find more of their items.“He picked [the journal] up on the battlefield,” Gregory said. “Now it’s in another battlefield, isn’t it?” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
