The broker believes Premier has made itself investable again following a balance sheet restructure, although the stock is seen as a long-term play due to short-term trading headwinds that will make it difficult for the firm to meet its cash generation targets this year. Investec thinks the firm’s shares can rise above 50p if it can deliver strong trading and cash flow.VALIANT PETROLEUMRBS rates the oil firm “buy” with a target price of 650p. The broker has upgraded its core net asset value estimate from 470p to 512p due to lower debts and thinks the company is trading cheaply.

The great rugby versus football debate

first_imgGolden boots and golden balls: Jonny Wilkinson and David Beckham are stars in their respective sportsBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorANTICS ON the football field lately, particularly the endless diving and poor attitudes on show in the Barcelona-Real Madrid Champions League semi-final, have left many fans disenchanted with the game. Then there are all the sordid tales of off-field misbehaviour in the tabloids – and that’s before you consider all the stories now protected by super injunctions.It was a recent comment from Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic that caught my eye and brought up the age-old debate of whether football can learn from rugby. He said: “When I played in Serbia and Russia, players dived. In England, you don’t so much. That’s why people love to see English football. Fans don’t come to watch people going down or arguing on the pitch. Fans enjoy it when players are honest.“You have rugby in England. You see how much respect they have. They challenge, they hurt each other, they even fight – but how many do you see rolling on the pitch? This is respect. That is what football should be like.”Rugby has often preached to football about the need to respect officials, fair play and so on – but can the sport still lord it over their round-ball cousins? Frankly, I’d say no. Rugby is not whiter than white, far from it in fact given their own recent misdemeanours. Bloodgate is the obvious example to disprove the theory, but more recently there have been bad cases of gouging and even this weekend bore witness to an instance of unsportsmanlike behaviour, Manu Tuilagi landing three punches on Chris Ashton in the Aviva Premiership semi-final between Leicester and Northampton.Fireworks: Danny Cipriani’s late-night outings have not gone down well with his Melbourne Rebels team-matesOff the field, there have been drugs bans and plenty of drunken antics, recent incidents involving Andy Powell, Gavin Henson and Danny Cipriani cases in point. Even rugby’s bureaucracy has become as farcical as football given last week’s embarrassing U-turn by the RFU. So surely rugby union needs to look at itself before preaching to other sports. Yes there are plenty of good things about the game but there are things that need to be addressed – and fast – for rugby to ensure the sport maintains its traditional values and enhances its reputation. Perhaps then rugby could even attract some of those disillusioned football fans, this year’s World Cup a perfect opportunity to do so. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Rugby’s not a saint by any stretch of the imagination,” says former Australia fly-half Michael Lynagh. “Players are getting into trouble on and off the pitch.”Ex-Gloucester coach Dean Ryan believes it’s important to educate young players coming through the ranks so that they realise they are role models. He says: “It’s not just rugby or football, we’re talking about young men playing sport and the responsibility that comes with that. A lot of things come with paying young men enormous amounts of money and we need to look at how to support players in terms of education. I hope the World Cup is a show – the last thing the sport wants is to be clouded by bad incidents.”Ieuan Evans, the former Wales wing, realises the potential of the World Cup as rugby’s showpiece event but is realistic enough to point out that the sport will always play second fiddle to football.“The audience is bigger for the World Cup so is a great way to promote the game, but we’ll never compete with football because that is the truly global game. But we can spread the word of the game with the World Cup. We want to offer entertainment and for young people to be drawn in. We want kids across the world to follow the sport.”center_img And it will be fantastic if those children appreciate the respect and camaraderie that makes rugby such a special sport. However, rugby must also ensure it gets its own house in order before preaching to other sports about rights and wrongs. The game is not perfect.To read more views from the Sky Sports analysts on rugby’s big issues, see the July issue of Rugby World, on sale Tuesday 7 June.last_img read more

HMRC to target charities’ entrance fees

first_img Organisations that don’t pay VAT on their admission fees are in danger of being targeted by the authorities, say experts.VAT is not paid on entrance fees for organisations in the ‘cultural’ sector including museums, zoos and theatres. This is on condition that the organisation is managed ‘essentially on a voluntary basis.’Simon Newark, VAT partner at national accountancy group UHY Hacker Young, said a recent case involving Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, caused confusion and charities should beware: Advertisement “As well as having voluntary board members, the orchestra paid a managing director, which is common in many other organisations. However, a Tribunal ruled that because the managing director played a vital role in decision making, the orchestra had to pay VAT on the price of their admission tickets.“Another much earlier case involved the Welsh Mountain Zoo where the widow of the founder was paid a small pension and rent for use of a garage. Customs sought to argue that she had a financial interest in the zoo and attempted to deny exemption. In the circumstances, the Tribunal rightly threw Customs’ argument out, but the case does highlight the underlying agenda.“Lots of organisations have employees paid or remunerated in some way to help with their day to day running. This case has made it unclear what ‘essentially voluntary’ means and it’s likely that those not paying VAT will be targeted by the tax man to test the boundaries. Any organisation unsure if it should be paying VAT on admission charges should seek professional advice,” added Newark.  22 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis HMRC to target charities’ entrance fees AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Chicago transit workers take to the streets

first_imgBus and rail operators, members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 whose contract expired over a year ago, picketed Dec. 21 at three sites to demand  the Chicago Transit Authority bargain seriously toward a new contract. The CTA instead has proposed no wage increases, fewer holidays, an 18 percent increase in health insurance premiums and conversion of many full-time to part-time positions. Chanting “They say cutback! We say fight back!” the workers showed powerfully that effective bargaining must sometimes be done in the streets.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Harassment of privately-owned newspaper The Zimbabwean

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns the Zimbabwean authorities’ repeated harassment and intimidation of The Zimbabwean, a privately-owned newspaper that is edited in Britain and printed in South Africa. In the latest instance, criminal charges of “publishing falsehoods” have been brought against the directors of Adquest, the company that distributes it inside Zimbabwe. No date has yet been set for their trial.“We deplore the fact that the privately-owned Zimbabwean media are still exposed to police-state reactions and intimidation attempts,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is unjust and absurd to target this newspaper’s distributors, who are not responsible for its content. This is all the more disturbing as the national unity government formed a year ago said it intended to guarantee press freedom.”Adquest directors Barnabas Madzimure and Fortune Mutandiro were arrested by the police on 10 February, charged under criminal law with “publishing falsehoods prejudicial to the state” and then released. The previous day, three of Adquest’s drivers were detained and questioned for three hours before being freed.The arrests were prompted by a story in the 10 January issue headlined “Mnangagwa plots fight back: talk of new splinter group,” which reported that defence minister Emmerson Mnangagwa had been with other leading members of the ruling ZANU-PF party with a view to taking control of the party.“Madzimure and Mutandiro had nothing to do with this,” said The Zimbabwean editor Wilf Mbanga. “They were not even responsible for distributing the 10 January issue, because we did not start working with Adquest until 14 January. We were distributed by Publications Distributors at that time.” One of the newspaper’s reporters, Stanley Kwenda, fled Zimbabwe in mid-January after being threatened by Chrispen Makedenge, a senior police officer implicated in the abduction of journalists and members of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), the opposition party that has entered into a power-sharing arrangement with ZANU-PF.The cause of democracy has not advanced a great deal since the national unity government was installed almost exactly a year ago. Press freedom has improved but major progress has yet to be seen. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to foster a more favourable climate for privately-owned and independent newspapers, above all by allowing the Zimbabwe Media Council (ZMC) to become operational. A new autonomous entity that is empowered to issue licences to newspapers, the ZMC should be able to facilitate the independent press’s rebirth. Its nine members have been named but it has still not begun working.

Variations in condition indices of mackerel icefish at South Georgia from 1972 to 1997

first_imgMackerel icefish (Cllanzpsocephal[~gsz rnnnvi) are widespread on the South Georgia shelf, Antarctica, and have been fished commercially since the early 1970s. They are known to feed predominantly on krill. An index of condition which uses the ratio of the measured total mass to the estimated mass is shown to provide a good indicator of local krill density. The index is likely to be little affected by the reproductive cycle unless there is high krill availability during the months around the spawning time, and even then the effect is much less than the highest observed values. The condition index responds rapidly to changes in krill density and therefore can provide indications of short-term variations inkrill availability. Condition index provides a useful proxy for krill density and is likely to be of considerable value in interpreting the results from ecosystein assessments such as that in progress under the auspices of CCAMLR.last_img read more

BYU men’s basketball star Yoeli Childs suspended for the first nine games of the season

first_img Brad James Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPROVO, Utah-News broke Friday afternoon that BYU men’s basketball star forward Yoeli Childs will miss the first nine games of the season.This is because of a violation of new NCAA agent/draft rules per a statement released by Brigham Young University.The release states Childs declared for the 2019 NBA Draft and signed with an agent while the NCAA determined he was not compliant with the installation of these new rules.The NCAA ruled Childs’ actions “impermissible” because he signed with his agent before filing paperwork with the NCAA, per the release.The Provo-based university appealed the decision but the NCAA upheld its ruling.BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe expressed his disappointment with the NCAA’s decision but called Childs “honest and forthright throughout the reinstatement process.”When speaking with the media, BYU head coach Mark Pope said much of this was done during a period when the Cougars had no head coach and that combined with these new NCAA rules, confusion was prevalent in the situation.Pope also lauded Childs for admitting to his unintentional mistakes and for his best efforts to “do things exactly the right way.” Tags: 2019 NBA Draft/BYU/NCAA/Yoeli Childs August 9, 2019 /Sports News – Local BYU men’s basketball star Yoeli Childs suspended for the first nine games of the seasonlast_img read more
