Tui gains from collapse of smaller rivals

first_img KCS-content Tui gains from collapse of smaller rivals Share TUI Travel yesterday released what an analyst described as a “real humdinger” of a trading statement for August and September as it took advantage of the collapse of some of its smaller rivals.Europe’s largest travel firm said holiday bookings for winter and next summer were encouraging and said net debt should fall by more than it expected.Chief executive Peter Long said holidaymakers were seeking the security of a major tour operator after the failure of a number of smaller operators and airlines earlier this year, claiming: “We have benefited from this flight to quality.”British travel companies that have collapsed, leaving thousands of passengers stranded, include Kiss Flights, Goldtrail and Sun4U.TUI said winter sales in the UK were up 17 per cent compared with the previous year, while summer 2011 booking volumes were up five per cent in the UK and up 18 per cent in the Nordic region, the two markets it currently has on sale.The company said its summer 2010 programme, which runs to the end of October, was almost fully sold after a surge in late bookings.After warning on profit in August, TUI Travel maintained guidance for the year. Analysts are predicting full-year profits for Tui of £269.5m on sales of £13.4bn.

Fiji vs Scotland match cancelled as decision was ‘unavoidable’

first_imgFriday Nov 20, 2020 Fiji vs Scotland match cancelled as decision was ‘unavoidable’ Fiji’s match with Scotland had now officially been cancelled, Autumn Nations Cup organisers today announced. The match was due to take place at Murrayfield on 28 November but with so many members of the Fiji squad infected with Covid-19, it will not be possible.ADVERTISEMENTFollowing Fiji’s cancelled fixture against Italy and the announcement that they had 29 players infected, today’s news comes as no real surprise but will be hugely disappointing for fans.“The extent of infection in the Fiji camp, combined with a minimum 10-day isolation period, plus the obvious need for suitable preparation for any international test match meant that, whilst difficult, the decision was unavoidable,” said an Autumn Nations Cup statement.“The Tournament organisers remain in constant contact with the Fijian squad regarding their wellbeing and recovery which continues to be the number one priority” This follows Fiji’s cancelled game against France, for which France were awarded a 28-0 bonus point win.However, the Fiji team and tournament organisers are hopeful that they will be able to take part in their fourth scheduled match, on December 5th, against the team that will finish in 4th place in Pool A. This will be subject to fitness levels once the players come out of isolation, and following all appropriate protocols.

CPJ, RSF ask journalists to share information about border stops, device searches

first_img New York, April 17, 2018–The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) are joining to document challenges that journalists face entering or exiting the United States. The organizations are calling on reporters to share cases of extra screenings, invasive searches of electronic devices, or difficulty obtaining visas to travel to the U.S. United StatesAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting sources Help by sharing this information ANDREW CABALLERO-REYNOLDS / AFP June 7, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting sources WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists CPJ, RSF, the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, and other partners have documented at least 19 cases of journalists being stopped at the border since 2008. Nearly half were asked to unlock and turn over their cell phones, posing risks to unpublished work and confidential sources. “Journalists are increasingly worried about their ability to protect their sources when crossing into the United States, but we don’t know exactly how many have had problems at the border,” said Courtney Radsch, CPJ’s advocacy director. “Administration officials have not lived up to their assurances on journalists’ rights or responded to our proposals for new guidelines, so it’s essential to document these cases and understand the full scope of the threats journalists face at borders.” U.S. Customs and Border Patrol maintains that it has the authority to search the electronic devices of any individuals entering the country. The Supreme Court has upheld a “border search exception” to the Fourth Amendment’s requirement that authorities obtain a warrant, but it has not yet ruled on electronic device searches at the border. Many privacy advocates argue that there is a big difference between searching a suitcase to ensure that it doesn’t contain weapons or contraband and searching through someone’s private messages on their phone or laptop. CPJ has documented cases of journalists being stopped and interrogated about details of private conversations, social media posts, and their work, while RSF has reported on journalists whose work on Syria, Kurdish issues, or the FARC in Colombia has made it difficult or impossible to travel to the United States. CPJ issued a safety advisory advising reporters of their rights when crossing the U.S. border. In 2017, CPJ and RSF–under the auspices of the ACOS Alliance, a coalition of news organizations, freelancers, and journalist groups working to improve protection standards for freelancers–sent a letter to Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly calling on him to reject any proposal to require social media profile and password information as a condition to enter the country. “RSF has documented a number of journalists who experienced visa issues due to their reporting on sensitive topics that the U.S. government seems to have flagged as ‘terrorist activity’ or otherwise troubling,” said Margaux Ewen, RSF’s North America director. “But without additional data allowing us to paint a broader picture of how many journalists may have experienced this issue, there is little we can do to ensure that reporters won’t be penalized for their work by being unjustly denied entry.” ### Journalists who have had problems entering or exiting the U.S. should contact: Alexandra Ellerbeck at CPJ ([email protected]) Margaux Ewen at RSF ([email protected]) Or visit CPJ’s campaign page to fill out a survey.

The sale of homes will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 is estimated to take a year and includes 42 homes mostly in South Pasadena and Pasadena.“Like many, I am relieved to see this day finally here. The State was never equipped to be in the single family property business and these homes need to be in private hands and benefitting the local communities I am optimistic that the 1950’s decisions that put us in this situation are a thing of the past as our region has different needs and priorities. I am very glad that our audit helped bring public scrutiny to the 710 corridor that helped make this day happen,” commented State Senator Anthony Portantino.While in the Assembly Portantino initiated a state audit that highlighted many of the challenges and problems Caltrans faced while managing the properties. He has also been a longtime advocate for selling the many homes owned by the state for the unnecessary, discredited and out dated 710 freeway proposal.More information can be found by calling (213) 897-8184 or by visiting Caltrans’ website at http://www.dot.ca.gov/d7/business/710sales/index.html.

Protestor issues High Court challenge to Limerick judge

first_imgNewsProtestor issues High Court challenge to Limerick judgeBy Staff Reporter – May 5, 2017 2360 Judge Marian O’Leary Advertisement WhatsApp Judge Marian O’Leary“I’LL see you in the High Court”, was the response made by a man accused of public order offences when a Limerick judge refused to show him her identification as a member of the judiciary.In a bizarre exchange during Wednesday’s sitting of the District Court, Joe Doocey (50) of Knocksbarrett, Ballina, Mayo challenged the legal status of his prosecution for alleged public order offences at Limerick Court last year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It is alleged that Mr Doocey, along with Brian McCarthy (47) of Hillview, Knocksheragh, Tier Na Boul, Killarney, engaged in threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour in a public place on May 6 last year.Both men are also charged with assaulting or obstructing a peace officer on the same date.Mr Doocey is further charged with failure to comply with a direction of member of An Garda Síochána.The incident’s are alleged to have taken place at Limerick Court house during a hearing of 170 repossession cases before Limerick County Registrar Pat Wallace.Mr Wallace was forced to retreat from the bench on two occasions before eventually abandoning proceedings when protestors entered the courtroom.As Mr McCarthy’s case was called, he handed Judge Marian O’Leary a written submission on the proceedings and sought full disclosure of all Garda evidence in relation to the allegations.Sergeant Donal Cronin said that the State would comply with the order within eight weeks.However, Mr Doocey then sought to have the case struck out claiming that the court and the State were in breach of European legislation on Human Rights and that it was illegal for Gardaí to leave the charges “hanging over me for 12 months”.“These are false charges and there is no merit to them”, he said.After Judge O’Leary refused to strike out the charges, Mr Doocey challenged the legal standing of the DPP prosecuting through a Garda Sergeant and citied national cases and incidents of alleged mismanagement.Sgt Cronin said that as this was the first date the case was before the court, he would “not be cross examined by the accused as there were provisions in place for court procedures”.Mr Doocey then turned his attention towards Judge O’Leary and accused her of breaking the law and breaching EU legislation.“Where is your ID, I want to see it”, he demanded.“I’ll see you in the High Court”, Mr Doocey told Judge O’Leary as he left the court.Both cases were adjourned to next July for the accused men to enter a plea or set a date for hearing.

Further, such orders have to necessarily be passed by after the administrative authority after due application of mind, and elected representatives (such as MLAs) cannot have a right to claim that a particular employee should be posted at a particular station. To ensure that the all the employees are treated fairly and equally and every employee during his tenure of service serves in tribal/ hard areas and also in remote /rural areas, the Division Bench comprising Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua suggested the following mechanism: The Government should categorize all the stations in the State in at least four or five categories, i.e. A, B, C, D and E. The most easy stations, i.e. urban areas like Shimla, Dharamshala, Mandi etc. may fall in category A and the lowest category will be of the most difficult stations in the remote corners of the State such as Pangi, Dodra Kawar, Kaza etc. At the same time, the home town or area adjoining to home town of the employee, regardless of its category, otherwise can be treated as category A or at least in a category higher than its actual category in which the employee would normally fall. For example, if an employee belongs to Ghumarwin, which is categorized in category B, then if the employee is serving in and around Ghumarwin, he will be deemed to be in Category A.After the stations have been categorized, a database must be maintained of all the employees in different departments as to in which category of station(s) a particular employee has served throughout his career. An effort should be made to ensure that every employee serves in every category of stations. Supposing the State decides to have four categories, i.e. A, B, C, D, then an employee should be posted from category A to any of the other three categories, but should not be again transferred to category A station. If after category A he is transferred to category D station, then his next posting must be in category B or C. “In case such a policy is followed, there will be no scope for adjusting the favorites and all employees will be treated equally and there will be no heart burning between the employees,” the Court said. It has also clarified that if a particular employee cannot be posted to a particular region due to some personal hardships, an exception can be made. However, whenever such exception is made, a reasoned order must be passed why policy is not being followed. The detailed observations have come in a writ petition moved by one Lekh Raj, against an order relating to transfer of 7 employees, passed at the behest of an MLA. In the facts of the case, a sitting MLA of Sirmour District addressed a letter to the Chief Minister, proposing to transfer 7 employees. The same was approved by the CM, without even consulting the administrative authority. Taking exception to employment of “political patronage” in the matters of transfer, the Bench reiterated that the Chief Minister and Ministers/ elected representatives may only “recommend” the transfer of an employee (See Sanjay Kumar v. State of HP & Ors., HLJ 2013 (HP) 1051). “The transfer orders are ultimately to be issued by the Administrative head after independent application of mind that too after subjective satisfaction without being influenced by the recommendations so made by the elected representatives. …elected representatives cannot have a right to claim that a particular employee should be posted at a particular station. The choice has to be made by administrative head i.e. Executive and not by the legislators. Where an employee is to be posted must be decided by the administration,” it held.

Woman killed in San Diego synagogue shooting to be laid to rest

first_imgSANDY HUFFAKER/AFP/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) — Grieving family and friends will gather Monday at the funeral for Lori Gilbert-Kaye, a 60-year-old woman shot dead Saturday at the Chabad of Poway synagogue in San Diego County.Three others were injured in the attack in the synagogue’s lobby during Saturday morning services, on the last day of Passover. The 19-year-old suspected gunman is in custody.Gilbert-Kaye was at the synagogue with her husband and daughter for a memorial service in honor of her mother, who recently died, Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein told reporters.When the shooting broke out, Gilbert-Kaye was in the lobby, while her friend, Rochelle Schwartz, was in the sanctuary with Gilbert-Kaye’s daughter. “I just remember getting her down and covering her with my body and telling her, ‘Please be quiet. I don’t want the shooter to know that we’re here,’” Schwartz told ABC News. “She was just so brave.”Once the gunfire ended, Schwartz and Gilbert-Kaye’s husband and daughter rushed to the lobby. “It was horrific,” Schwartz said.“Lori is really a pillar of the community. She has the most generous, kind heart,” Schwartz said overcome with emotion. “We’re gonna miss her. She’s a very special person. And I just pray that this never happens again.We have to work on education and we have to stop this insanity. It’s just so tragic.” “We’re gonna go back to services,” Schwartz added. “We’re gonna show that were strong enough to just continue and not let this get to us.”As the shocked community comes together in grief, the suspected gunman is in custody and being held on arresting charges of one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder. Formal charges are expected to be filed Monday.Investigators believe he acted alone, and authorities say he bought the AR-style weapon used in the attack on Friday. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Winds and tides in the mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere upper mesosphere recorded with the Falkland Islands SuperDARN radar

first_imgMeteor wind data from the first year of operation of the Falkland Islands SuperDARN radar (52° S, 59° W) are used to characterize the atmospheric tides and background winds in the upper mesosphere above the South Atlantic. Strong (>40 m s−1) semidiurnal tides are observed in the winter time and large amplitude (>60 m s−1) bursts of quasi two-day wave activity are seen in January 2011. Data are in good agreement with those presented from the SAAMER meteor radar (54° S, 68° W). Comparison with SuperDARN meteor wind data from a geographically similar Northern Hemisphere site at Goose Bay (53° N 60° W) reveal clear interhemispheric differences especially in the semidiurnal and terdiurnal components of the tides. The winter time amplitudes of the tides are much stronger in the Southern Hemisphere than in the north. Background winds are observed to be significantly more polewards and westwards throughout the year than those predicted by the empirical horizontal wind model HWM07.last_img read more
