HMV pins its hopes on DVD Xmas sales

first_img MUSIC, games and books retailer HMV says releases of films such as Sex and the City 2 and Toy Story 3 will help its key Christmas period as it tries to bounce back from a disappointing start to the year.“All I can say about Christmas is that the release schedule in particular is looking healthy,” chief executive Simon Fox said on the sidelines of the World Retail Congress in Berlin. Our like-for-likes were very disappointing in the first 18 weeks. It’s a tough year for us.” HMV, which also owns live music venues, in September reported a worse than expected 15 per cent drop in first-quarter sales in Britain and Ireland.Fox said live music bookings at its venues for the period up to Christmas were also looking healthy and that its foray into clothing sales had started well.“So far, so good, but it’s early days,” he said, pointing out that the line was only launched in September. He declined to comment on the outlook for 2011 although was looking forward to the launch of Nintendo’s D’Alema player, which he said would be a “huge product”. Nintendo had said last month that it was putting the Japan launch date for the product, which can be used without special glasses, back to late February from November, close to the US March launch date. However, Fox said: “As far as I am concerned they did not delay the launch. We always expected an Easter launch.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Ross Skeate smashed twice by Heinrich Stride

first_imgTuesday Jul 15, 2008 Ross Skeate smashed twice by Heinrich Stride Western Province narrowly lost to Griquas in a tough Currie Cup encounter at Kimberley’s Absa Park on Saturday. The game brought with it a number of crunching tackles, most of which would have had the boys from Cape Town missing the perfectly manicured green turf of Newlands. Captain Ross Skeate, ce lebrating his 50th cap, got the warmest welcome of all from warhorse Griquas number 8 Heinrich Stride. Stride cut Skeate down to size not once but twice, as it seemed that whenever Skeate got the ball, the Griquas defence somehow managed to find and smash him backwards. It was quite comical at times, even more so than the big lock’s facial hair. Skeate has reportedly been signed up by Toulon, and if the rumours are true, will be playing his rugby in the French Top 14 soon. He’s a hugely talented player so will be a big loss to the Stormers & Western Province. Unfortunately the camera work on both big hits didn’t show them as well as they could have, but the impact was huge on the first and solid on the second, as Skeate describes in his regular column on sarugby.com“I’m not sure whats hurting moremy body after a tough physical typical Kimberley game, or my pride after losing my 50th game in the way that we didor maybe its the big hits that I took in the beginning of the game, I think my boots are still at the field after being hit out of them.” Griquas won the match with an incredible 62m penalty from Riaan Viljoen.UPDATE: You can watch the kick here now.

RSF publishes report on ‘Sexism’s toll on journalism’

first_img*By sexism, RSF means all forms of sexist and sexual violence, including discrimination, insults, sexual harassment, unwanted touching, verbal and physical sexual assaults, threats of rape and even rape itself. Last August’s revelation by Sofie Linde, the host of a very popular TV show in Denmark, that she had been the victim of sexual harassment by a senior public broadcasting official sent a shockwave through a country usually regarded as a model of attention to gender issues and parity. Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalists ImprisonedWomenInternetFreedom of expression Organisation Three years after RSF produced a report on the difficulties for journalists – male and female – covering women’s rights, its new investigation is based on an analysis of responses to a questionnaire that was sent to all of its correspondents throughout the world, and to journalists specialising in gender issues. Among women journalists, those who specialise in covering women’s rights, sport or politics are particularly exposed to violence. They include Nouf Abdulaziz al-Jerawi, a Saudi journalist who was tortured, subjected to electric shocks and sexually molested during detention after being arrested for denouncing the system of male guardianship that women must endure in her country. March 8, 2021 RSF publishes report on ‘Sexism’s toll on journalism’ News RSF_en Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalists ImprisonedWomenInternetFreedom of expression READ THE REPORTЧитать на русском / Read in RussianJournalism can be a dangerous profession, but it is often doubly dangerous for women because of the risk of sexist and sexual violence to which they are exposed. Of the 112 countries where journalists were polled for this report, 40 were identified as dangerous or very dangerous for women journalists. Also in Brazil, 50 women journalists specialising in covering sport launched the #DeixaElaTrabalhar (‘Let Her Work’) movement to denounce the frequency with which they are forcibly kissed by team supporters while providing live coverage of sports events. In France, nearly 40 women journalists working for the French sports daily L’Equipe issued a joint statement condemning the harassment to which female journalists are subjected within news media sports departments. RSF’s report also examines the impact of this violence on journalism and how trauma often ends up reducing its victims to silence and reducing pluralism within the media. As well as causing stress, anxiety and fear, this kind of violence may induce the targeted women journalists to close their social media accounts temporarily or for good (according to 43% of the respondents to RSF’s questionnaire), to censor themselves (48%), to switch to another speciality (21%) or even to resign (21%). READ THE REPORT “We have a pressing obligation to defend journalism with all our strength against the many dangers that threaten it, of which gender-based and sexual bullying and attacks are a part,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire says in the report’s foreword. “It is unthinkable that women journalists should endure twice the danger and have to defend themselves on another front, a many-sided struggle since it exists outside the newsroom as well as inside.” The dangers are not just to be found doing traditional reporting in the field. Women journalists also encounter danger in the new virtual reporting domains, on the Internet and social media, and even in places where they should be protected, including their own newsrooms. Following the Internet, it is the workplace that the most respondents (58%) identified as the location “where sexist violence has been perpetrated.” This perception has been reinforced by the #MeToo movement’s spread throughout the world and the fact that women journalists are now daring to denounce sexual attacks or sexual harassment in such countries as the United States, Japan and India. The results confirm the trends already detected by RSF’s staff, including the fact that the Internet has now become the most dangerous place for women journalists (reported by 73% of the respondents). Rana Ayyub, a well-known Indian columnist and investigative reporter is an authority on this problem as she receives constant rape threats and death threats on social media. To mark International Women’s Day, celebrated on 8 March, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has published a report entitled ‘Sexism’s toll on journalism’ that reveals the extent of the dangers of sexist and sexual violence for women journalists, and its impact on journalism. To combat sexist and sexual violence, RSF concludes its report with a series of detailed recommendations for journalists, news organisations and governments.

She was subjected to an extremely violent cyber-harassment campaign after the president and his sons accused her of having “extracted” this information in exchange for sexual favours.

Study: How the Pandemic Is Impacting Mortgage Delinquencies

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Study: How the Pandemic Is Impacting Mortgage Delinquencies Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Nearly 11 million households fell behind on their mortgage and rent payments during the first three months of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new report published to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Research Institute for Housing America (RIHA).The report, titled “Housing-Related Financial Distress During the Pandemic,” culled previously unpublished data from the Understanding America Study, an internet panel survey of more than 8,000 households. The data analysis determined that 5.14 million homeowners, of 8% of the national total, missed or deferred at least one mortgage payment during the pandemic’s first three months while 5.88 million renters, or 11% of the national total, either missed, delayed, or reduced payment on their housing costs.Furthermore, the report found the percentage of those who reported having lost a job in the past two weeks held steady throughout the quarter, with roughly 2.5% of renters and 1.5% of mortgagors becoming unemployed. Approximately 9% of employed renters and 8% of employed mortgagors were working fewer hours than at the beginning of the pandemic, while 12% of renters and 6% of mortgagors were receiving unemployment insurance benefits by the end of June.“RIHA’s study shows that households were largely successful in navigating a difficult economic landscape and continued to make their housing payments during the first three months of the outbreak. In contrast, nearly half of student debt borrowers missed at least one payment,” said Gary V. Engelhardt, co-author of the report and Professor of Economics in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. “Data from other sources reveal that this trend has continued through August. With the first round of federal stimulus having run its course, and Congress deadlocked in passing another round of relief, families’ continued ability to meet their housing obligations during the ongoing pandemic is critical to the health of the housing and mortgage industries.”The report follows the release of the MBA’s 2020 National Delinquency Survey for the second quarter, which reported the delinquency rate at 8.22% by June 30, with roughly 20% of mortgagors receiving permission from their lender to delay or reduce their monthly payment. Of those mortgagors not receiving permission, only 3.3% missed a payment. The MBA estimated missed mortgage payments were as much as $16.3 billion for the second quarter.

The Solicitor General agreed to this suggestion.On Monday, the SG had told the Court that his detention, which is set to expire on August 7, will not be extended further. Qayoom had been under detention since August 5 last year following the abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and is currently lodged in Tihar jail, Delhi.The Court had earlier asked the Centre if it was necessary to keep him under detention, considering his old age.”He is 73 years old. We want to know on what basis you would like to retain him in Delhi’s Tihar. Moreover, his detention period as per order is about to expire.”, Justice S K Kaul, the presiding judge of the bench, had asked on July 15.On June 26, while issuing notice in Qayoom’s petition, the SC had ordered that he should be provided with blankets and other essentials at Thiar jail.The development happened in the petition filed on behalf of Qayoom, challenging the order passed by the J&K High Court on May 28, upholding his detention observing that his “ideology was a like a live volcano” which has the tendency to disturb law and order.The petition, filed by Advocate-on-Record Aakarsh Kamra on behalf of Qayoom, states that the Petitioner is “Senior Advocate with more than 40 years’ standing at the Bar, having served as President of the J&K High Court Bar Association for many terms, including from 2014 till the present”. It further contends that the Respondents had detained Qayoom on the intervening night of 4th and 5th August, 2019, under the provisions of Sections 107 read with 151 of the Jammu and Kashmir Code of Criminal Procedure. His detention had then been prolonged by invoking provisions of the J&K PSA, 1978. “Thereafter, an order of detention under the Public Safety Act was passed against the detenu on 07.08.2019, and on 08.08.2019, the Petitioner was taken to Central Jail, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, without any prior notice of intimation, where he was kept in solitary confinement.” The order of the Respondents had been challenged by Qayoom before the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, which had been dismissed on 07.02.2020. Subsequently, an appeal filed before the HC was also dismissed on 28.05.2020. The instant Special Leave Petition before the Apex Court states that “the impugned common judgement and order dated 28.05.2020 is ex facie unsustainable in law as it is premised on stale, irrelevant, remote vague, imprecise and deficient grounds of detention. The impugned judgement and order concluded that most of the grounds in the detention order ‘somewhat clumsy’ which implies that the High Court too found them wanting”. The plea further comments on the fragility of Qayoom’s health on account of him being more than 70 years of age and suffering from life threatening heart ailments showing blockade of artery to the extent of 55-60%, with uncontrolled blood sugar and surviving on one functioning kidney. Furthermore, he sustained a bullet injury in 1995 due to which he suffered cervical vertebral column injury. “In such conditions, the Petitioner is a high risk vulnerable to COVID-19 due to several co-morbid conditions. Yet, the impugned judgment and order rejects the request for transfer of the Petitioner to a jail closer to home in Srinagar conditional on grounds that are repugnant to the constitutional jurisprudence of Article 19 and 21, and cannot be sustained in law.” In light of the above, the Petitioner had filed the instant petition for special leave to appeal against the “illegal, untenable and unconstitutional findings and observations made in the impugned judgement and order.”Qayoom was represented by Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave and Advocate Vrinda Grover, assisted by Advocates Soutik Banerjee, Ratna Appnender and Aakarsh Kamra, Advocate on Record.Next Storylast_img read more

Some factors affecting metabolic rate in an Antarctic mite

first_img1. Determinations of live weight-specific oxygen consumption (metabolic rate) in adults of the Antarctic terrestrial mite Alaskozetes antarcticus (Michael) showed that starvation resulted in metabolic suppression. 2. Food materials were shown to influence metabolic rates and depletion of oxygen concentration in Cartesian Divers resulted in decreased oxygen uptake. 3. The effects of sex and reproductive condition on metabolic rates were explicable on the basis of weight differences between males, gravid females and non-gravid females. 4. Long periods of laboratory culture tended to result in lower weights and metabolic rates, but short term temporal variation in weight-specific oxygen consumption within individuals was also demonstrated. 5. Oxygen consumption rates of adult A. antarcticus were measured at -4°C and found to be slightly lower than values previously measured at 0°C.last_img read more

NOVATEK reached milestone of one trillion cubic meters

first_imgThe company commenced producing natural gas at its East-Tarkosalinskoye field with the launch of the first gas treatment unit in 1998 NOVATEK has reached a milestone of one trillion cubic meters in cumulative natural gas production. (Credit: skeeze/Pixabay) PAO NOVATEK (“NOVATEK” and/or the “Company”) today announced that the Company has reached a milestone of one trillion cubic meters in cumulative natural gas production since commencing its natural gas field development program.The Company commenced producing natural gas at its East-Tarkosalinskoye field with the launch of the first gas treatment unit in 1998.   Subsequently, the Company started developing deeper gas condensate bearing layers that required the application of new state-of-the-art technologies, including drilling large diameter, long horizontal wells with multi-stage fracturing. The combination of natural gas produced from subsidiary companies and joint ventures has steadily increased over the past years, and with the successful launch of our flagship Yamal LNG project in 2017, NOVATEK has transformed from providing natural gas to the Russian domestic market to a global LNG player.“Today, NOVATEK is one of the largest natural gas producers globally. Reaching cumulative natural gas volume of one trillion cubic meters is a significant milestone for the Company, and we are very proud of what we achieved since the Company’s foundation. We have built a natural gas platform both domestically and now internationally with our Yamal LNG project that is one of the most cost-competitive in the industry.” noted Leonid Mikhelson, NOVATEK’s Chairman of the Management Board. “A high quality, long life resource base combined with a low cost operating model as well as our highly professional team capable of solving the most complex tasks represent our biggest competitive advantage vis-à-vis our global industry competitors.” Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more
