The Anglo-Dutch consumer giant, whose products include Knorr Soups and Dove soap, was upbeat about the company’s prospects despite consumers tightening their belts. After the announcement yesterday shares in the firm jumped around five per cent as it emerged that profit margin had also been raised.Chief executive Paul Polman said the frosty market conditions had helped the company to focus on keeping costs down.He told an investor briefing: “I am confident that in 2010 we will deliver against the model. “But of course we need to demonstrate we can do so year in, year out.”Analysts said that the company, which also makes Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream and Pond’s skin creams, had turned in respectable figures, particularly in the face of tough competition from rival Procter & Gamble. Graham Jones of Panmure said: “Trading conditions have remained very difficult but we believe Unilever is in much better shape than in the past.”The company’s underlying operating earnings rose 19 per cent – driven by £874m in cost savings so far the year. “We think these results will go some way to restoring confidence in the company’s turnaround, we remain happy buyers”, said analyst Martin Deboo at Investec Securities. Polman has been in charge for 22 months and is revamping the company.

The lords committee heard evidence that the UK’s biggest firms change their auditor on average only every 48 years, although some say this figure is out of date. The exception is Randgold Resources, which uses BDO for auditing services.BDO partner James Roberts said: “A lot of FTSE 100 financial directors and non-executives are alumni of the big four, so it gets very self-reinforcing.”But Pauline Wallace, a senior audit partner at PwC, said that while she supports the current OFT inquiry, a broader investigation is unnecessary: “It’s a fiercely competitive market… There’s a question about how many is enough. The four firms absolutely do compete at FTSE 100 level.”Deloitte, E&Y and KPMG declined to comment.

first_img Going upstairs: referee Romain Poite signals for a review by the television match official (Getty Images) Six Nations Table 2021 LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Who is leading the way in the Six… Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram 2021 Six Nations Referees TMO – television match official explainedWhat is a TMO in rugby?The acronym stands for television match official. The TMO is someone who watches the match action on TV screens, usually in a truck outside the ground. Using a system called Hawk-Eye, they can see multiple camera angles of an incident and pass on information to the match referee – via an earpiece – to help him make accurate decisions.Can the TMO intervene on any matter they like?No, the TMO in rugby is basically restricted to two crucial areas:1. The scoring of a try, whether the grounding of the ball or the build-up to the try. Any infringement within the two phases prior to a try would render it illegal.A referee can also use the TMO’s help to ascertain whether a kick went between the posts, but that’s quite a rare occurrence.2. Possible foul play. The TMO is free to communicate with the referee at any time if he sees something he suspects is foul play. Equally, the referee can ask the TMO to look at an incident, either while the game continues or after stopping play.Strong signal: referees can draw a box to signify to the crowd that a decision has gone to the TMO (Getty)Doesn’t it hold the game up?Yes. But efficient use of the TMO system has improved over the years. Referees have been encouraged to refer fewer decisions ‘upstairs’ in a bid to reduce the interruptions.Usually the footage is shown on a big screen inside the ground. If he likes, the referee can make a quick decision himself, without waiting to hear what the TMO has to say.World Rugby spell out in their laws that “the referee should not be subservient to the system” and that he is “the decision-maker and must remain in charge of the game”.Generally what happens is that the referee will relay “what I’m seeing” to the TMO, who will agree with him. The decision is made and the game resumes.But there are instances of TMOs trying to persuade a referee to change his mind. If they say “Would you like to look at it again?”, it suggests they think the ref has made the wrong call. And if they say “Those are all the angles”, it means they’re not sure so it’s over to you, ref! Hideaway: this is the sort of place you’ll find the TMO at work, well away from prying eyes! (Sky Sports)Can they watch the video footage as many times as they like?Strictly speaking yes, but this is entering murky waters. Some TMOs still seem unwilling to back their judgment until they’ve seen about ten replays! The key is that if a referee is seeking clarification that his initial decision can stand, the decision should only be reversed on TMO referral if the evidence is “clear and obvious”.Thus, for example, a possible forward pass shouldn’t lead to a try being disallowed if the direction of the pass is too borderline to call one way or the other. Just award it and play on.

The system first appeared, in a very basic form, in 1999 and it’s taken a while to iron out the creases. The England-Fiji game that opened the 2015 World Cup rankled because 28% of the stoppage time was for TMO reviews.But the rationale behind it is to reduce or eradicate blatant injustices. Such as the try Wales’ Mike Phillips scored from a quick lineout against Ireland in 2011. Replays showed that the ball used by thrower Matthew Rees had been handed to him by a ballboy – which made a quick lineout illegal. But the try stood and Wales won 19-13.Another bone of contention is slow-motion replays, which invariably make an incident look worse than it actually was. Five years ago England’s James Haskell complained about this after being sin-binned for a high tackle against Ireland.Off you go! Romain Poite sends James Haskell to the sin-bin in 2016 following a high tackle (Getty)“Reviewing incidents is a good idea but playing it on the big screen, making it a big circus, is not constructive,” he said. “I think the referee, or the people who are making the judgment, should do it away from the big screen. I don’t know why it is made a spectacle.”Related content: Laughs aplenty in James Haskell’s new bookCertainly referees can be put under far more pressure to act by the aggressive reaction of a home crowd that watches an incident involving a visiting player on the big screen. The same offence by a home player might produce little more than a murmur!Don’t football have a TMO now?Yes, of sorts. They call their system VAR (Video Assistant Referee) and it’s already been branded a “shambles” by Alan Shearer.Football will find their use of it improves with time. But the cynical nature of top-level football – for example, attackers seeking contact in order to win a penalty – means disputes about decisions in the round-ball code will rage on and on!

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Press Release Service Curate Diocese of Nebraska [Episcopal News Service] A group of bishops has proposed a compromise on the question of whether the president of the House of Deputies should be paid, an issue that has proved divisive at previous General Conventions.The compromise comes as the result of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s desire for the issue to get a “full and fair conversation” in the House of Bishops, Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Sean Rowe told Episcopal News Service June 28.That conversation began informally at the House of Bishops meeting in March. Rowe and the group then crafted Resolution B014 that would direct the church’s Executive Council to pay the House of Deputies president director’s fees “for specific services rendered in order to fulfill duties required by the church’s Constitution and Canons.”The resolution, and others related to the issue, will be debated during the July 5-13 meeting of General Convention in Austin, Texas.Corporations typically pay director’s fees to board members for providing services to the corporation. Rowe acknowledged that directors of nonprofit corporations and organizations are not always compensated in the same way. However, he said, “it does happen.”Resolution B014 addresses two important concerns that the bishops’ group gleaned from the conversations, Rowe said. One was that the House of Deputies president role requires a significant enough time commitment that some aspects of the work need to be compensated. The other concern was that the compensation should happen in a way that does not change the polity of the church.Providing director fees, the resolution’s explanation says, “does not alter the governing documents of the Episcopal Church or the scope and responsibilities of the position.”Rowe officially proposed the resolution, and Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Tom Breidenthal and Diocese of Western New York Bishop Bill Franklin are the endorsers.The question of a salary for the now-unpaid position of House of Deputies president prompted a rare conference committee between bishops and deputies in the waning hours of the last convention. The 2015 meeting of convention eventually agreed to postpone making a decision, instead calling for the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies to appoint a task force to study the issue.The Task Force to Study Church Leadership and Compensation concluded in its report to convention that the work of the House of Deputies president amounts to a full-time job. Its Resolution A028 calls for a salary but does not set an amount.The task force asked Executive Council to include a proposed salary in the draft 2019-2021 budget, which it gave to the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) in January. The task force did not suggest an amount, but it included $900,000 for a full-time salary and benefits for the three years in the draft budget (line 557 here).Diane Pollard, who chaired the task force, told Episcopal News Service that she appreciates the effort at a compromise solution and supports Rowe’s resolution.“We can do no less than to come together around this issue and move it forward in a definitive way in which it can be effective,” she said. “If [Rowe’s] resolution will do that, fine. If they want to take [the task force’s] resolution and do it, that’s fine, too.”Pollard said the issue of compensation is both a justice issue for any potential holder of the office and an issue of widening the pool of those potential candidates. “You either have to be wealthy or old, because you have to have income,” she said. “You give up a lot.”She added that, despite the tendency to personalize the issue, “this is not about getting a salary for an incumbent.”In addition to chairing the House of Deputies during convention, the president also is canonically required to serve as vice chair of Executive Council and vice president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, or DFMS, the nonprofit corporate entity through which the Episcopal Church owns property and does business. He or she has a wide swath of appointment powers. The president also travels around the church, speaking at conferences and other gatherings, meeting with deputies and other Episcopalians.The position, which is filled by election during each meeting of convention, has a travel budget and a paid assistant. Each president is limited to three consecutive terms.The president’s role has been changing since 1964 when the convention gave the position a three-year term instead of simply being elected to preside during convention. Three years later, it made the president the vice chair of Executive Council and thus a vice president of the DFMS, and defined the president’s authority in making appointments. Rowe’s resolution notes that expansion of the duties of the office has paralleled an expansion of the presiding bishop’s role.The deputies who served on the task force have issued questions and answers about the issue of compensating the president of the House of Deputies.Meanwhile, Province IV of the church proposes a different approach to the salary issue. Its Resolution C042 would have Executive Council set what it calls per diem compensation for the president when she or he is at council meetings, consults with the presiding bishop in making appointments required by canon, and is doing official work related to General Convention. Calling it a way to address the “short-term fairness issue of compensating the president,” the resolution also proposes that a special task force “clarify and enumerate the comprehensive role” of the president.The issue of compensating that officeholder has been discussed for decades. General Convention considered the salary issue in 1997, 2000 and 2015. Each time, Rowe said, the deputies were clear that they wanted to see their president compensated.Supporters of the change say making the office a paid job would broaden the pool of people able to consider running for election. No House of Deputies president has held regular paid employment since the election in 1985 of the Very Rev. David Collins, who retired early at age 62 from his position as dean of the cathedral in Atlanta in order to adequately carry out his presidential duties, according to the report.The task force suggested that only people who are older and/or have what it called favorable “personal economic circumstances” can realistically hold the office. Thus, presidents are not always chosen based solely on gifts and skills, the members said.“The task force came to the conclusion that providing a salary for the president of the House of Deputies is not only a good thing, but also essential for the growth of the Episcopal Church,” the task force said. “Moreover, it is demanded by good stewardship of the human resources entrusted to us in those who would devote their full-time service to the Episcopal Church.”Others disagree, some saying they fear “mission creep” in the form of an expansion of the president’s duties and authority.Some cite Resolution A099 proposed to this convention that would allow the president to call a meeting of the House of Deputies at times other than the triennial gathering of convention.– The Rev.

Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA General Convention 2018, June 29, 2018 at 9:56 am This position absolutely should be paid. It is a full-time job, just as the people on the presiding bishop’s staff who support the operation of the General Convention are already paid. The PHOD works tirelessly– for instance, last summer, she was a vital presence and gave generously of her time and her encouragement to our youth as both a teacher and a worship leader at the Episcopal Youth Event. And that’s just one example.

This needs to happen. June 28, 2018 at 2:25 pm “Some cite Resolution A099 proposed to this convention that would allow the president to call a meeting of the House of Deputies at times other than the triennial gathering of convention”. Not sure what would be needed, but then I not all together sure why the House of Bishops needs to meet twice a year either. John Hobart says: Rector Smithfield, NC Julie Helgass says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA June 28, 2018 at 10:07 pm Tom Sramek asks a good question. What canonical duties are actually required of the PHoD? I think they are few. And I believe the PHoD should be compensated for that work.But are we allowing “mission creep” in what is expected of the PHoD?Much as I treasure the work of the HoD, I am mindful that we are an *Episcopal* Church. We elect our Bishops and consent to their governance. June 29, 2018 at 1:46 am If you cannot afford this position, do not seek or accept it. Many volunteer opportunities of great importance require applicants who are financially secure and independent. The current model clearly meets the needs of the church and should be left alone.

I was underwhelmed. June 28, 2018 at 6:05 pm Technically, the Constitution and Canons don’t specify that the PHOD must “travel around the church, speaking at conferences and other gatherings, meeting with deputies and other Episcopalians,” so none of that would be compensated. The question really needs to be asked: What sort of administrative structure do we want (and can we afford) to enable TEC to do the work to which we feel God has called us?” Until that question is answered, just dealing with salary makes no sense. Lisa Fox says: June 28, 2018 at 10:28 pm Hmmm! $900,000 for a church that is declining in membership. Wow, wish I had that job. How about a merit based system. The more pledging members you bring in the greater your salary. When most parishes are struggling to pay the heating and lights bill you want us to pay the salary for someone who wants to be a co-bishop. Dream on! June 29, 2018 at 7:30 am Most Episcopalians don’t have a clue on how the Diocese’ are financed. The 2019 budget is published and can be accessed via the ENS website if you care to search it. You will find there is a proposal to increase the EDUSA staff salaries by 3% and healthcare benefits by 9% over the three year period. If you do the math most are paid over $100K. All while parishes are struggling to pay their bills. John is right! Time to downsize.

It’s time for the Bishops to personally demonstrate their convictions and not expect the laity to make all the contributions. If they truly believe that the President should be compensated, then they should show it, to the entire church, by agreeing to cut their own pay that would, in total, equal the proposed compensation of the President.

Candidates have to be wealthy, self-employed or in a position that lets them have lots of free time from work. They do get travel and per diem expenses but that hardly covers day to day living expenses.The President of the House of Deputies is the only officer of the DFMS that is not paid a salary. That alone should justify the compensation. No this isn’t about the incumbent. But it is time that the bishops of our church ended the distinctions they have created between the two houses and their presiding officers. The Presiding Bishop is the Presiding Bishop all the time. The President of the House of Deputies is President of the House of Deputies all the time as well, not just when General Convention is in session. Let’s be fair and quit playing silly games.

first_imgFriday Dec 28, 2007 Cedric Heymans magnificent solo try for Toulouse On a cold friday night in Montferrand, Clermont-Auvergne managed to defeat an unbeaten Toulouse side 21 points to 17. A game of the highest intensity, quality and physicality, saw a mercurial piece of running for what is in my view, a true contender for Try of the Season so far.The match took place in the French Top 14. Self explanatory, but to explain, this is the top league in France. The Pro D2 is the Second Division, and features the likes of Toulon, Agen etc…Cedric Heymans, of Toulouse, received the ball inside his own half from a long pass by All Black Byron Kelleher. It looked as though nothing much was on, but French winger Heymans set off on a slalom run that blew the opposition to pieces.A brilliant effort against a top quality team, this 55 meter classic will no doubt be one of the best tries we’ll see this season.

Villas Fasano comprises 45 houses and is located in the 750-hectare Fazenda Boa Vista housing and hospitality complex in Porto Feliz, 100 km away from the city of Sao Paulo, in Brazil.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe houses, set side-by-side along two major parallel axes, open all onto a large common use and shared garden.Save this picture!DesenhosThe gently sloped topography of the 18.000m2 area reserved for Villas Fasano, the slightly irregular alignment of the houses – they lie sometimes ahead, sometimes more remote – and the absence of fences, walls or any division between the lots, provide great organicity and lightness to the ensemble, surrounded by large green extents and the Fasano Hotel which, by the way, provides Villas Fasano and their owners with complete room service, from housekeeping to catering.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe 45 houses – 05 single-storey units and 40 two-storey units – have either 2 or 3 suites, living room, kitchen, toilet, terraces, pool and service areas. The architecture is simple and combines natural and rustic materials such as brick (kept apparent), stucco and wood.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiWhat makes Villa Fasano special is that in these country-houses one can enjoy all the comfort and privacy of a house, and still delight in the services of a five-star Fasano Hotel and in the wide variety of amenities the Fazenda Boa Vista offers, including a spa, an equestrian center, swimming pools, sports center – tennis courts, polo and football fields – two 18-hole golf courses, a pet zoo, and a medical center.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Best Student Design-Build Projects Worldwide 2017Architecture News7 Established Architects’ Advice For Young Professionals and StudentsArticles Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeIsay WeinfeldOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPorto FelizBrazilPublished on July 13, 2017Cite: “Villas Fasano / Isay Weinfeld” [Villas Fasano / Isay Weinfeld] 13 Jul 2017.

VietnamAsia – Pacific September 1, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prime Minister urged to free all imprisoned bloggers and journalists Receive email alerts April 7, 2021 Find out morecenter_img April 22, 2021 Find out more News Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Dear Prime Minister,Your government has announced an amnesty for more than 10,000 detainees for Vietnam’s national holiday on 2 September.Reporters Without Borders welcomes the release of the blogger Nguyen Van Tinh and the poet Tran Duc Thach, who were sentenced in 2009 to three and a half and three years in prison respectively for “propaganda against the socialist state”.We urge you to go further and, on this holiday, to free all the prisoners of conscience in Vietnam, especially the 17 bloggers and three journalists who, according to our organization, are still in prison. The government must respect its obligations and guarantee freedom of expression. As you begin your second term as Vietnam’s Prime Minister, the release of human rights activists, journalists and bloggers would send a strong signal of a readiness to be more open.We would like to draw your attention to the cases of Vi Duc Hoi, Pham Minh Hoang, Paulus Le Son, Cu Huy Ha Vu and Nguyen Van Ly in particular.Arrested on 27 October 2010, the pro-democracy activist Vi Duc Hoi was sentenced in April to five years in prison and three years of house arrest for anti-state propaganda. He received an award from the human rights organization Human Rights Watch in 2009.Pham Minh Hoang, a blogger with French and Vietnamese dual citizenship who uses the pen-name Phan Kien Quoc, was sentenced on 10 August to three years in prison and three years of house arrest on a charge of trying to overthrow the government.Witnesses saw the blogger Paulus Le Son being arrested outside his home on Bui Xuong Trach Street in Hanoi on 3 August during a major police operation involving use of violence in which about 10 Catholics were targeted. The day before, he had gone to a Hanoi people’s court to try to attend the netizen Cu Huy Ha Vu’s appeal hearing. It was the second time that Son, who used to write for a parish newspaper,, was arrested this year.The blogger Cu Huy Ha Vu’s seven-year jail sentence for anti-state propaganda was upheld on appeal on 2 August. The son of the poet Cu Huy Can, he was arrested in November 2010 just for advocating a multi-party political system on the Internet and in the foreign media.Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest, human rights activists and editor of the dissident publication Tu Do Ngon Luan, was sent back to prison on 26 July although he is in very poor health. He was sentenced in 2007 to eight years in prison for anti-state propaganda but had been given a one-year parole on medical grounds in March 2010.Vietnamese foreign ministry spokesperson Nguyen Phuong Nga insisted on 27 July that “all of the basic rights and freedoms figure in the Vietnamese constitution and in the laws that are below it” and “are respected in practice too.” In Vietnam, “no one is punished for expressing their opinions,” she claimed. Reporters Without Borders urges you to ensure respect for Vietnam’s undertakings by freeing these prisoners.We thank you for the attention you give to our request.Sincerely, VietnamAsia – Pacific News News News RSF_en Follow the news on Vietnamlast_img read more

first_img Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is very disturbed to learn that Cairo-based French journalist Rémy Pigaglio was denied entry to Egypt on his return from a vacation in France and was put on a flight back to Paris yesterday, although all his papers were in order.

After being held for 30 hours in the airport’s international area without being questioned or given any explanation, he was put on a flight back to France last night. The French embassy intervened on his behalf, but to no avail.“We urge the authorities to explain why this journalist was denied entry,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Given the circumstances, everything suggests that this was designed to intimidate all the foreign correspondents based in Cairo. It is a very worrying signal for the foreign media, to say the least.”Pigaglio’s passport and phone were confiscated shortly after he presented himself to immigration police in the airport. Before his phone was taken, he managed to send a message to fellow French journalists in Cairo reporting what was happening. They sounded the alarm while at the same time criticizing the Egyptian government’s growing harassment of both Egyptian and foreign media.A foreign reporter in Cairo told RSF that what had happened to Pigaglio was unprecedented. “A foreign correspondent whose papers were in order has never been turned back until now,” the reporter said.Ranked 159th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, Egypt is the world’s fourth biggest prison for journalists, after China, Eritrea and Iran.

The survey found that 22 percent, or roughly 53 million adults, have only enough emergency savings for one month. Results from the survey also found that 48 percent of respondents said their cash reserves would last as long as three months, and 28 percent expect savings to last for a year. In total, 68 percent of consumers reported setting aside money in case of a financial emergency.Top savings goals reported by the survey include retirement and buying a home. 13 percent of survey respondents listed saving to buy a home as their top priority. A big factor in whether a person had emergency savings was race. The survey found that of the 29 percent of adults with no emergency savings, 43 percent were African-American and 39 percent were Hispanic. White respondents made up a reported 24 percent of adults with no emergency savings. Higher income earners were more apt to save, with only 11 percent of people making $100,000 or more per year with no emergency fund.In a bit of good news for homebuyers before the prime spring season, mortgage rates fell back a bit this week, according to a report from Freddie Mac. In its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey, Freddie Mac reported the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaging a rate of 4.34 percent for the week ending April 10, a decline of 0.7 from the previous week’s rate of 4.41 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year fixed was down nearly a full percentage point at 3.43 percent.
