It has spotted “numerous operational and strategic opportunities to maximise shareholder value,” following years of struggle and disappointment.Benefit from the stock market crashPearson’s stock was in long-term decline following a series of profit warnings, and is down 65% over five years. Its US educational business has been hammered by the shift from print to e-books. When I last examined the stock in February, I was in no rush to buy. Today’s positive news and its dirt-cheap stock price change that.The group is looking for a new chief executive to replace the departing John Fallon, who was in the post for seven years. Stockholm-based Cevian wants a say in his successor. Investors are hoping this marks the start of a turnaround, but overhauling the company will take time.I love dirt-cheap FTSE 100 stocksIn February, I questioned the wisdom of Pearson’s planned £350m share buyback. That has now been suspended but the group stood by its final dividend in April, and currently yields 3.38%.It is offering free online digital courses for the furloughed and self-employed, hoping to boost its crucial online learning division in the longer run. A post-pandemic shift to digital learning could power sales and offset declines in its traditional business. Success is never guaranteed, but this dirt-cheap FTSE 100 opportunity is worth a closer look.I’d buy into the Informa share priceToday, events and information group Informa (LSE: INF) warned revenues could fall by almost a third in 2020, with £300m worth of events cancelled. In normal times, that would have sent the Informa share price tumbling, but today it is up 10%.Investors were encouraged by reports that events are picking up in China, with second-half trade show activity encouraging. The FTSE 100 group cautioned that lifting restrictions will be “patchy and slow” though. Its biggest market, the US, is unlikely to restart until September.Investors have been cheered by news that Informa has identified £400m of cost savings, due to cancelled events and its pay and recruitment freeze. Its subscriptions and drug development operations are doing well, confirming my faith in this affordable FTSE 100 stock opportunity.The group has also scrapped its dividend while strengthening its balance sheet by raising £1bn from shareholders. I regularly urge investors to buy top FTSE 100 stocks that have fallen hard in a stock market crash. Well, here’s one. Informa’s share price is 44% down this year and looks a top long-term buy and hold to me.

Butter, flour, chocolate chips bound in ‘Trinity’

My description when explaining the trinity to my grandchildren goes something like this. The dough and the chips are like (sort of) the Father and the Son. Then when baking the aroma goes wherever. That is the Spirit blowing where it will. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Harriet Kinberg says: Danielle Tumminio[Episcopal News Service] There are few places where community is as rich and energized as on a college campus: Groups of students gather for passionate discussions about Plato and Aristotle, following their professors after class and peppering them with questions. A cappella groups practice until their different voices sound as one, and clusters of undergrads huddle together in the winter, wearing gloves with holes in the thumbs and carrying handmade signs that say, “Free Tibet!”A college campus is one of those rare places where, at two o’clock in the morning, groups of young people gather in dorm basements, making chocolate chip cookies, eating dough and placing it on baking sheets in equal proportions. Watching that scene—or being part of it—makes one certain that tomorrow will be better than yesterday.I have the privilege of teaching college students as a lecturer at Yale University, watching them blossom during the semester we spend studying theology together and seeing how they develop relationships in class that can last a lifetime.And I have the privilege of answering—or trying to answer—their questions.Case in point: the Trinity.A couple of months ago, a student raised a hand to ask me about the Trinity, and the inner dialogue in my head went something like this:CONFIDENT SELF: Just say that it’s three-in-one-and-one-in-three.DOUBTING SELF: That won’t be sufficient.CONFIDENT SELF: Won’t it, though?DOUBTING SELF: No, it won’t.CONFIDENT SELF: Then I will say it is a mystery.DOUBTING SELF: If you say that, then that ornery student who sits in the corner making incisive and dangerously true comments will want to know why theologians can’t explain this fundamental concept in Christianity with greater eloquence.CONFIDENT SELF (now rapidly losing confidence): I fear you are right.[Pause as CONFIDENT SELF deflates like an unknotted balloon.]CONFIDENT SELF: God, please help me.And in one of those moments when God offers exactly what we need, I found an answer to my student’s question, an image to explain this extra-biblical-fundamental-to-our-faith-mystery: The Trinity, I said, is like those chocolate chip cookies you bake at two o’clock in the morning. You take flour, and sugar, and butter, and a whole lot of chocolate chips (preferably two times as many as the recipe calls for) and you blend them together. And then you stick them in the oven, and when they come out, they’re bound as one.You can’t pull the sugar out.You can’t separate the flour from the butter.And the cookie would be something entirely different if you removed the chocolate chips.Yes, I told my students, the Trinity is very much like a chocolate chip cookie: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — all baked together — all distinct, all necessary, and yet inseparable.Even though the word ‘Trinity’ appears nowhere in the Bible, Jesus offers glimpses of this chocolate-chip-cookie relationship. He tells Nicodemus, for instance, about how the Father, Son, and Spirit work together on our behalf for our salvation: Each person of three is part of an interwoven mission, each dancing with the other, holding hands, unable to let go, until the dance is complete, until their work on behalf of us is done, which it never seems to be.And yet, Jesus also seems to acknowledge the mystery of the Trinity. While he tells Nicodemus that we are saved by the Son, that we can experience new life through the Spirit, when pressed, he says that, “The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”Some things about the Trinity, Jesus says, humans will not be able to explain.But like the wind blowing, like the scent of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, we will experience it. We will be touched by that dancing, dynamic relationship that exists between the persons of the Trinity, and it will change us. It will change our relationship with God and our relationship with the world.Because if there’s one thing that doesn’t have to be a mystery about the Trinity, it’s the way in which we can imitate the relationships between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in our lives. Alone, we may be like flour, wholesome, but a little dry. We may be like butter, rich in flavor but greasy in morals. We may be like sugar, sweet but one-dimensional. Or we may be like chocolate chips, big in personality but a little too addictive.As individuals, we’re all missing something, which is why we need God and each other — to complete ourselves in a way that we can’t alone. It’s why we need the church, because it’s there that we can practice knowing, loving, and serving God together: in our choirs, where different voices with different pitches and timbres and ages blend as one in praise of God; in our mission projects, where we join our hands and minds and hearts to create a world without sorrow or sighing or pain; in the Eucharist, where we share bread and wine so that we become Christ’s body.In this work together, we see why alone is not good enough. Alone, we’ll just be a flake of flour or a lonely chocolate chip. Together, we become a tasty cookie that can nourish and feed others, that can transform the world into the place God intends it to be.At the end of my first semester teaching, it was a beautiful spring day, and my students wanted to sit outside. Seated on grass in a courtyard surrounded by Gothic architecture and stained glass windows, I asked them what they’d learned, and at the end of our two hours together, one of my students ducked into her dorm room and emerged with a cake.“We were up all night making it,” she said. “Some of us went to the grocery store to buy stuff, and a couple of us baked the cake, and others made the frosting. From scratch,” she added, and I could see her pride that even with limited kitchen supplies, they hadn’t resorted to a mix.We stayed late that day, my students and I, eating that cake with the homemade yellow frosting, laughing, smiling. It wasn’t a chocolate chip cookie, but the principle was the same: Ingredients had been bound together. People had been bound together, inextricably woven, yet still distinct. And intermingled with the sun, I like to believe the persons of the Trinity shone down upon us, rejoicing to see themselves reflected on earth.– The Rev.

New Zealand Provincial Barbarians and British and Irish Lions teams named

first_imgThursday Jun 1, 2017 New Zealand Provincial Barbarians and British and Irish Lions teams named The British and Irish Lions’ tour of New Zealand kicks off on Saturday as they take on a fired up New Zealand Provincial Barbarians side that happens to feature coach Warren Gatland’s son. Both teams have now been picked, ahead of the clash in Whangarei.Gatland is not taking the NZ Barbarians side lightly, having picked six 2013 Lions in the starting XV, with three more on the bench.Sam Warburton skippers the side, while late call up Greig Laidlaw starts at number nine.“We have named a side that showcases a strong combination of experience and youth and we are really looking forward to Saturday,” said Gatland. “We are lucky to have some real leaders in the squad and to be able to select them for this match in the likes of Rory Best, Alun Wyn Jones and Greig Laidlaw.“We’ve picked the team for Saturday but it is still the plan to try and give the whole squad a start in the next two matches. It is important the players get that opportunity, because if they go well and the team goes well, they put themselves in the shop window for a Test start.”The New Zealand Barbarians team has also been named, by coach Clayton McMillan, and features players from 13 provincial unions. The side is captained by Otago’s Sam Anderson-Heather, with stalwart Peter Rowe as vice captain.Veteran Dwayne Sweeney will be alongside Bryn Gatland in what should be an exciting backline.“It’s always going to be pretty hard when you are bringing a group together from four corners of New Zealand but from what I can see and the feedback we’ve got, the boys have come together really well,” said McMillan.“We’ve kept things relatively simple with the emphasis on creating an environment where the players can express themselves and represent their provinces with pride. We recognise it’s going to be a hard game but we have plenty to play for and the boys can’t wait to get out there.“The unique and special occasion for bringing this team together has forced the boys to bond quite quickly, and they’ve enjoyed a fantastic week here in Whangarei,” he said.“WE KNOW BRYN WELL” – WARBURTONLions skipper Warburton said that some of the Welsh players know Bryn Gatland well.“The Welsh lads know Bryn very well. I have a lot of respect for Bryn. I saw him play last year as well. I thought he showed a lot of courage when he stepped up and kicked a dropped goal last year as well to win (for North Harbour). You’ve got to give him a lot of credit for that.“He’s obviously in a good bloodline as well. I’m looking forward to coming up against him and shaking hands after the game,” Warburton said.TEAMS:NEW ZEALAND PROVINCIAL BARBARIANS 1.Aidan Ross (Bay of Plenty), Sam Anderson-Heather captain – Otago), 3.Oliver Jager (Canterbury), 4.Josh Goodhue (Northland), 5.Keepa Mewett (Bay of Plenty), 6.James Tucker (Waikato), 7.Lachlan Boshier (Taranaki), 8.Mitchell Dunshea (Canterbury), 9.Jack Stratton (Canterbury), 10.Bryn Gatland (North Harbour), 11.Sevu Reece (Waikato), 12.Dwayne Sweeney (Waikato), 13.Inga Finau (Canterbury), 14.Sam Vaka (Counties Manukau), 15.Luteru Laulala (Counties Manukau).Substitutes: 16.Andrew Makalio (Tasman), 17.Tolu Fahamokioa (Wellington), 18.Marcel Renata, 19.Matt Matich (Northland), 20.Peter Rowe (vice captain – Wanganui), 21.Richard Judd (Bay of Plenty), 22.Jonah Lowe (Hawke’s Bay), 23.Junior Ngaluafe (Southland).BRITISH & IRISH LIONS1.Joe Marler, 2.Rory Best, 3.Kyle Sinckler, 4.Alun Wyn Jones, 5.Iain Henderson, 6.Ross Moriarty, 7.Sam Warburton (captain), 8.Taulupe Faletau, 9.Greig Laidlaw, 10.Johnny Sexton, 11.Tommy Seymour, 12.Ben Te’o, 13.Jonathan Joseph, 14.Anthony Watson, 15.Stuart Hogg.Substitutes: 16.Jamie George, 17.Mako Vunipola, 18.Tadhg Furlong, 19.George Kruis, 20.Justin Tipuric, 21.Rhys Webb, 22.Owen Farrell, 23.Jared Payne.KICKOFF TIMES: 19:35 (NZ), 8:25am (UK)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2017 Related Articles 195 WEEKS AGO The 2017 Lions tour documentary looks epic… 203 WEEKS AGO The Impact of British and Irish Lions Tours… 204 WEEKS AGO Jordie Barrett’s casual booming dropgoal… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

County Supervisors Fund Body-Worn Cameras for Sheriff’s Department

first_imgPublic Safety County Supervisors Fund Body-Worn Cameras for Sheriff’s Department Oversight commission, inspector general want changes to policy STAFF REPORTS/CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 | 2:57 pm Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIt Works Great If Weight Loss Is What You’re Looking For!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Dark Side Of Beauty Salons Not Many People Know AboutHerbeautyHerbeauty Examples of different types of body cameras were displayed at a press conference at Los Angeles Sheriff’s Dept. in 2013. Photos courtesy LASDThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to fund body-worn cameras for patrol deputies in the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD) over the next year.The LASD patrols unincorporated areas in the area, including nearby Altadena, and frequently works with the Pasadena Police Department.But activists still could be disappointed based on pending policy on the LASD website that says some footage could be delayed for a year before being released to the public.The Sheriff’s Department’s posted policy states it will release video in response to a Public Records Act request unless it would interfere with an investigation, in which case the release may be delayed for up to 45 days. In the event that the department decides at the end of that period that it would still substantially interfere with an active investigation, the sheriff could hold the footage for up to a year, or even longer if “clear and convincing evidence”’ of such potential interference remains.Unions ratified the policy for gathering and using the footage, but the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and Civilian Oversight Commission have recommended changes.The LASD policy “largely mirrors” that of the Los Angeles Police Department, which rolled out body-worn cameras five years ago, according to a June report by Inspector General Max Huntsman. However, where it diverges, the policy favors deputies, Huntsman said.“There are concerns that the policy grants supervisors and deputies too much discretion in deciding when to turn on or off a body-worn camera and that there is no real accountability for a deputy failing to activate the body-worn camera,” according to an OIG report.Routine audits to identify misconduct are prohibited by the policy. It also encourages deputies to review video footage before writing reports, leading the OIG to point to “grave concerns” by the public defender and alternate public defender about deputies fabricating details about what happened.Questions about when and how to release recordings to deputies and the public, as well as how to pay for storing and managing extensive amounts of data, were responsible at least in part for the delay in getting cameras in operation.The LAPD struggled through the same issues.Though the LAPD initially kept recordings for internal use, the department revised its policy in March 2018 to require public release of video from “critical incidents,” such as police shootings, within 45 days.Pasadena has a similar policy, although local police have released video footage well aware of that deadline, including controversial footage in shootings and other use-of-force incidents.In high-profile cases, the LAPD has also acted more quickly. For example, in the 2018 shootout at a Trader Joe’s in Silver Lake — where store assistant manager Melyda Corado was killed by an LAPD bullet during an exchange of gunfire between police and a man suspected of shooting two other people — LAPD Chief Michel Moore released bodycam video three days later.The Board of Supervisors had set aside $35 million for the cameras without releasing that money to the department. Supervisors Janice Hahn and Kathryn Barger co-authored a motion calling for a transfer of funds sufficient to cover the first year of operations.“Body-worn cameras are an important tool for transparency and I have been advocating to get them to our sheriff’s deputies since Sheriff Jim McDonnell was in office,” Hahn said.“The videos these cameras capture will give us a clearer understanding of what actually happens in the interactions between our deputies and members of the public.”Villanueva blames his predecessor and the board for spending too much time reviewing the problem and potential solutions, while board members have pointed out that the sheriff has had control of the procurement and implementation process. It is just one of many public disagreements between Villaneuva and the board.Hahn said the transfer would allow the department to move forward.The need for video footage couldn’t be clearer at a time when protesters nationwide have been enraged into action by the images of George Floyd, a 45-year-old Black man, fighting to breathe while held down by the kneeof a white Minneapolis police officer now charged with murder.Multiple supervisors noted that the presence of cameras doesn’t necessarily prevent violence.“These body-worn cameras, they don’t solve everything, but they put a lot of things in perspective,” said Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.Earlier this month, the department finalized an agreement with Axon Enterprise Inc. to equip more than 5,200 deputies and security officers with cameras. Villanueva said in a statement on the LASD website that the full roll-out would take 18 months and begin in October, with equipment going first to deputies at the Lancaster, Century, Lakewood,Industry and West Hollywood stations. Compton, East Los Angeles and another eight stations will follow beginning in January, according to Hahn.“Body-worn cameras will provide increased opportunity to review our performance following critical incidents, reduce force and complaints, reduce allegations of misconduct, showcase exemplary work and provide additional evidence in criminal matters,” the sheriff said in his statement.

You can attach a personal message to each and, to minimise the hassle even more, all tax and National Insurance requirements are collated by application and can be fed into the employer’s payroll systems at the end of the year.last_img read more

Heat flux distribution of Antarctica unveiled

first_imgAntarctica is the largest reservoir of ice on Earth. Understanding its ice sheet dynamics is crucial to unraveling past global climate change and making robust climatic and sea level predictions. Of the basic parameters that shape and control ice flow, the most poorly known is geothermal heat flux. Direct observations of heat flux are difficult to obtain in Antarctica, and until now continent-wide heat flux maps have only been derived from low-resolution satellite magnetic and seismological data. We present a high resolution heat flux map and associated uncertainty derived from spectral analysis of the most advanced continental compilation of airborne magnetic data. Small-scale spatial variability and features consistent with known geology are better reproduced than in previous models, between 36% and 50%. Our high-resolution heat-flux map and its uncertainty distribution provide an important new boundary condition to be used in studies on future subglacial hydrology, ice-sheet dynamics and sea-level changelast_img read more
