Under previous estimates published last month in the country’s 2011 draft budget, the debt figure was supposed to rise to 133 per cent of GDP this year from 115 per cent of GDP in 2009.The revised figures suggest that Greece will find it hard to avoid a debt restructuring, some analysts said.Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said Germany’s insistence on a future mechanism for banks and bond markets to share the pain of any euro zone sovereign debt default from 2013 could break some EU economies.“This could break backs. This could force economies towards bankruptcy”, Papandreou said during a visit to Paris.Bond yield spreads of deficit-ridden nations such as Greece, Ireland and Portugal have soared since German Chancellor Angela Merkel last month kicked off a debate about a debt restructuring mechanism for troubled Eurozone nations, although EU finance ministers have since said it would not apply to existing bonds.“It created a spiral of higher interest rates for countries that seemed to be in a difficult position, such as Ireland or Portugal,” Papandreou said. “This could create a self-fulfilling prophecy.”While worries increased in the eurozone countries, EU and IMF officials arrived in Athens for an inspection visit of the country’s finances yesterday.

We saw that it had had the effect of increasing perception scores for The Co-operative, taking it, almost overnight, from being below the average for the supermarket sector and in line with Lidl and Booths, to well above the average in the same range as Tesco and Morrisons. A good start to the campaign for The Co-operative but would it be a short-term boost or could it sustain its gains as the advertising started to wear-out? GOOD NEWS FOR THE CO-OPERATIVEReturning to the data nearly four months after the launch of the campaign it is great news for The-Cooperative. The index score, which over the course of the first week leapt from -1 to the mid 20s, has held that position; remaining 13 points above the sector average (compared to nine points below at the start of the year). This is driven by large sustained gains on all measures and there can be no doubt that The Cooperative has achieved great success in improving its perceptions across the board. KEEP PEOPLE TALKINGWhere it has done particularly well is in keeping people talking about it.The attention chart shows that less than one in 10 people were hearing news about The Co-operative at the start of the year but since the middle of January this has been consistently between a quarter and a third of the population.If it can maintain those high perception scores once the attention falls away then it really would have been the perfect campaign.Stephan Shakespeare is chief executive of YouGov. whatsapp center_img Co-operative campaign sustaining momentum by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Yesterday I went into detail as to why FTSE 100 business British Land faces an uncertain future. It is not just the rush of missed rent payments that it faces as the retail sector remains in lockdown. It’s the threat of prolonged pain as retailers across its shopping spaces suffer during the upcoming economic meltdown.The pressure that this Footsie share and its index neighbour Land Securities Group (LSE: LAND) face was highlighted in comments by Andrew Goodacre, chief executive of the British Independent Retailers Association, to MPs. He says that a fifth of retailers he had spoken to won’t reopen their doors when lockdown measures are eased.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…While a number of others said that they planned to eventually pull up the shutters and start trading again, Goodacre noted that “there is a huge caveat about the level of trade on whether they would continue to reopen”.FTSE 100 firms under the coshOasis Warehouse Ltd is one retail giant that definitely won’t be reopening its doors. The owner of the Warehouse and Oasis womenswear shops announced today that it had collapsed after calling in administrators at the top of the month. It’s one of many major operators that have gone to the wall in recent years as Brexit uncertainty has crushed consumer confidence. And it’s clearly not going to be the last.Like British Land, Land Securities trades on a rock-bottom forward earnings multiple, in this case a reading of 13 times. It’s still not enough to encourage me to invest, though.It’s not just that the coronavirus crisis and the subsequent economic meltdown threatens earnings in the short-to-medium term. The lockdown has muddied the longer-term profits outlook for the likes of Land Securities, too. Why? It has hastened the adoption of internet retailing for new users and embedded the habit among existing shoppers. It’s hammered the nail a little bit deeper into the coffin for physical retailers, then.Office gossipBut Land Securities’s concerns extend far beyond the troubles of the UK retail sector. In fact, office space comprises 50% of the total value of its commercial properties versus 38% that its retail assets make-up. A painful dive across the entire domestic economy bodes ill for its ability to collect rents over the next couple of years, then.Moreover, in the longer term, demand for its office space could begin to recede too. Rising e-commerce activity isn’t the only behavioural change to emerge from the Covid-19 crisis. The need for people to work remotely since March has hastened the trend towards home-working. This raises the prospect that Land Securities might struggle to fill its office spaces in the years ahead.The Footsie company is facing a worsening trading outlook, then. And to make things worse it also has a net debt mountain of above £4bn to contend with, too. Land Securities’s share price has rebounded 30% from the 11-year lows around 500p hit in early April. But I fully expect it to resume its downtrend soon. I’d avoid this large cap at all costs. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

first_imgMonday Feb 6, 2012 Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland Leigh Halfpenny was the man of the hour for Wales on the weekend, slotting a last minute penalty to snatch a thrilling 23-21 win over Ireland in a dramatic Six Nations match in Dublin on Sunday. In what was a passionate encounter, tempers were clearly at the fore for each side as the home team looked to avenge their defeat to the Welsh in the world cup last year. Yet Wales played with an energy that Ireland failed to match, and two tries by centre Jonathon Davies and one from George North provided the platform for this impressive result.Both sides exchanged scores in the first half, but Wales were made to rue fly-half Rhy Priestland’s wayward goal kicking as he missed several attempts at the sticks, allowing the Irish to go in at half time 10-3 up, courtesy of a try from hooker Rory Best and 5 points from Johnny Sexton.Wales returned after the interval without their talismanic captain Sam Warburton – who picked up a dead leg – but showed strength and power in attack, typified through the impressive North who set-up another score for Davies. However, Ireland found some spark of their own through Tommy Bowe who scored in the corner and at 21-15 with five minutes on the clock, looked to have the match; however, the Welsh had other plans and cut the lead to one-point with a try from North.Stephen Ferris was then sin-binned for a dangerous tackle on Ian Evans and Halfpenny held his nerve to slot over the last-gasp penalty and condemn the Irish to their first defeat in the opening game of the Six Nations for eight years. Following the match, Ireland Coach Declan Kidney was left to rue his side’s missed chances:“It is extremely disappointing. We had a lead early in the second half but we did not build on it. When we do press ahead we have to go for the jugular. We are going to have to look at being more ruthless,” he said.It was a classic match with many talking points, so feel free to discuss below.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Supreme Court: Fake abortion clinics have license to lie

first_imgJune 26 — The Supreme Court today handed the well-funded, well-organized, reactionary, Christian, anti-abortion network a bouquet of red roses with its decision on California’s Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care and Transparency (FACT) Act.The court in a 5-4 ruling, written by Justice Clarence Thomas and supported by the four conservative justices, affirmed the so-called First Amendment rights of “crisis pregnancy clinics” (CPCs) and gave them permission to continue lying to and emotionally bribing, manipulating and coercing mostly poor women, often women of color, to keep unplanned pregnancies.The case, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) vs. Becerra (California’s attorney general), was brought in 2015 by NIFLA to defend approximately 200 such CPCs in the state of California. The state had then just passed a law that required the centers to make specific disclosures to their patients or in their advertising.As part of the testimony the California legislature heard before formulating the law, women aired their many negative experiences at CPCs, and clinicians discussed problems imposed when pregnant women who want to have a child don’t receive essential prenatal health care right away.The law stipulated that centers licensed to provide medical services had to post notices to inform patients that they could obtain free or low-cost abortions by calling the phone number of the state agency that would connect them to state licensed abortion and reproductive health care providers. The unlicensed centers had to post 29-word disclaimers in advertisements — in some cases in up to 13 languages — that their services do not include medical help.The NIFLA argued that both requirements violate the First Amendment for licensed centers because requiring such information conflicts with their anti-abortion message and singles them out in a “gerrymandered” fashion. And for unlicensed centers because requiring such extensive disclosures would make it “almost impossible to spread their anti-abortion message.”According to a 2010 NARAL Pro-Choice California investigation of clinics in the state, 41 percent of counties did not have an abortion provider (that number is lower now), while 91 percent had at least one CPC. The majority of CPCs are located in rural areas, and those CPCs in urban areas tend to target primarily low-income women of color.Of the centers investigated, 70 percent wrongly advised clients that abortion increases the risk of breast cancer, while 60 percent incorrectly claimed that condoms are ineffective in reducing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. (Rewire.News, March 20)Concluding that both kinds of CPCs “are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the FACT Act violates the First Amendment,” the Supreme Court reversed the 9th Circuit Court’s ruling in favor of California and sent the case back to lower courts for new proceedings in light of today’s ruling. An appeal is definitely in order.Minority opinion affirms: women need ‘informed consent’Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the dissenting opinion, joined by the three liberal justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elaen Kagan. Breyer contended that both requirements for notices would pass constitutional muster. As for the licensed centers, he argued that if a state can require a licensed clinician to notify a woman seeking an abortion about adoption as an alternate option, why can’t the state also require a pregnancy center to tell a woman about abortion?As Breyer summarized in his dissent: “[W]hat is sauce for the goose is normally sauce for the gander.” With that, he was arguing for “informed consent,” a longtime requirement for women’s health care services, which originated with the publication of “Our Bodies, Ourselves” in the early 1970s.As for unlicensed centers, he said it was “self-evident that patients might think they are receiving qualified medical care when they enter facilities that collect health information, perform obstetric ultrasound or sonograms, diagnose pregnancy and provide counseling about pregnancy options or other prenatal care.” Breyer noted the requirement that unlicensed facilities provide disclosures in multiple languages would not be unconstitutional or impose an “undue burden” when only two languages — English and Spanish — would be required in “the vast majority of California’s 58 counties.”History of ‘crisis pregnancy centers’Even before the Supreme Court legalized abortion with the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, evangelical Christians and Catholics opposed to abortion began “sidewalk counseling” outside clinics to dissuade women from having abortions. When that wasn’t effective, abortion adversaries began setting up fake clinics near hospitals and licensed health clinics (to confuse potential clients) and in poor Black and Brown neighborhoods.Many women, desperate for convenient, low-cost health care, do not know the difference between a CPC and a licensed abortion clinic. Some CPCs offer free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, while staff dress in scrubs and provide individual counseling. Clients receive false information like having an abortion could prevent them from having a later pregnancy, that it causes breast cancer or may lead to suicide. One woman told HuffPost that she was grilled about her sex life, including when she lost her virginity, and she came away feeling ashamed and ridiculed.Today there are about 2,700 CPCs in the U.S., compared with about 800 reproductive health care clinics that provide abortions as well as cancer screenings and other routine gynecological care. There are also women’s clinics that provide routine reproductive health care and basic check-ups, but not abortions.In some states such as Texas and North Carolina, fake clinics receive state funding. A May 24 Rewire.News article reported that fake clinics in Texas outnumber abortion providers 10 to 1 and 50 have been receiving state funding since 2005. An April 26 article in Rewire.News detailed that the North Carolina legislature has (illegally) directed $400,000 annually for the current year and the next from its federal Maternal and Child Health block grant to the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship, an umbrella group of “faith-based” centers, which according to their bylaws are expected to abide by “biblical principles.”Linking struggles is needed nowA number of news sources have noted that this conservative 5-4 ruling, like others issued this spring, would not have happened if the Republican-controlled Senate had not refused to consider President Obama’s liberal nominee, Merrick Garland, to replace archconservative Justice Scalia who died in February 2016.Instead the racist, sexist, white supremacist reactionary in the Oval Office was able to appoint anti-worker, anti-people-of-color, anti-women, anti-LGBTQ Neil Gorsuch to the court, who has indeed done the Trump administration’s right-wing bidding in case after case this spring.But the conclusion to draw from this is not to feel depressed or defeated by this series of court-imposed losses for the 99%, but to be mindful that Trump administration functions at the bidding of the 1% — the ruling class made up of bankers and corporate magnates who are pulling his strings. That’s how patriarchal capitalism functions.And the ruling class is oblivious to, in fact ignorant of, the dialectical materialist law that repression sparks resistance.As the broad anti-people Trump agenda continues to be revealed — from white supremacist rage and murder in Charlottesville last summer to today’s merciless, heartless catastrophe of im/migrant family separation at the border — the peoples’ movement has now been emboldened in take to the streets all over this country and the world in resistance.In the past few years reproductive justice advocates have become bolder and more vocal and visible as they have become Blacker and Browner. Protecting and promoting families is one of the core human rights at the heart of the reproductive justice movement. Now is the time to link arms in resistance with allies in the struggle to counter our common enemy and defend the human rights of all working and oppressed people.Davis is a longtime reproductive justice activist and author of the pro-choice novel “Love Means Second Chances.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
