first_img West End sees robust October high street sales whatsapp Sunday 14 November 2010 10:39 pm KCS-content SALES at London’s West End shops remained robust during October despite the details of the government’s Comprehensive Spending Review acting to unnerve consumers.According to lobby group the New West End Company, which is backed by major retailers and property owners in Bond Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street, West End sales rose 7.7 per cent year-on-year. The outcome is well ahead of the 0.8 per cent rise across the rest of the UK reported by the British Retail Consortium.Jace Tyrrell of the New West End Company said: “October was an interesting month as people prepared for the Comprehensive Spending Review. on the 20th. Retailers have reported that the anticipation translated into sluggish footfall and steady sales for the first three weeks. “However, following the review, the final week of the month saw a 20% increase in foot flow as considered shoppers returned to the West End, and sales were boosted due to a strong family half term presence. ”The figures come as department store group John Lewis – which also owns the Waitrose supermarket business – reported a strong week of trading ahead of the key Christmas season. whatsapp Tags: NULLcenter_img Share Show Comments ▼ 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?

After entering administration, Football Index was forced to cut short shirt sponsorships with football clubs Queens Park Rangers and Nottingham Forest. The Football Index case was raised to the High Court earlier this month, after BetIndex put in motion plans to pay back back customers.

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Does the new oil crisis make the Premier Oil share price unmissable? Image source: Getty Images These are not comfortable times for Premier Oil (LSE: PMO) shareholders. And with an oil price slump in full swing, looking at the Premier Oil share price chart isn’t for those of a nervous disposition.The shares had only just been getting some life back after the previous downturn, reaching as high as 120p at the start of the year. Premier’s debt had come close to crippling the company back when the price of oil had fallen to $30. But with oil up in the $60-$70 range, things were looking better.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…At the end of December, Premier had got its net debt down to $1.99bn. That’s still scarily high, but a lot better than the $2.33bn a year previously. The firm’s covenant leverage was still concerning at 2.3x but, again, significantly better than 2018’s figure of 3.1x.Free cash flow came in at $327m, and the share price was starting to look sustainably healthy again.Oil price crisisBut then Covid-19 arrived. We had lockdown, the FTSE 100 crashed, oil demand plummeted and the Premier Oil price slumped once more.A barrel of Brent crude is fetching around $20, as I write, and the Premier Oil share price is down to just 21p. And we’re back asking the same questions we were during the last oil price shock. When will oil recover? What level will it reach? And, crucially, can Premier Oil survive until it happens?This time round, yes, I’m sure the oil crisis will end and prices will recover. How high? It’s only a guess, but I can see oil getting back to long-term prices of between $50 and $75 again. At those levels, Premier will be able to generate profits and strong cash flow. And get back to paying down that debt.Multibagger recovery?So when the oil crunch does end, I can see the Premier Oil share price recovering again. From today’s low levels, I really can see the chance of a multibagger here.But that can only happen if Premier can survive long enough in the meantime. As my fellow Motley Fool writer Rupert Hargreaves has pointed out, Premier has cash of $135m and undrawn debt facilities of $330m. The firm is planning to reduce capital spending by $100m per year too, which will also help.And having hedged 30% of its anticipated 2020 oil and gas production, as Rupert says, it looks like Premier can hold out for a while at $20-$30 oil price levels. The big question is how long?Premier Oil share priceIf debt facilities are drawn down much further and net debt starts to pile up again, I can see investors being more reluctant to pile back again this time round. And I can see the Premier Oil share price languishing at its current lowly depths for longer.Even when we’re out of the current oil crisis, Premier will still face the longer-term risks of running a business with very high debt levels. And it could be back at square one in trying to get down a newly-inflated debt pile once again.I do think there’s a decent possibility of a big profit here. But I also see a chance of a wipeout.

Expressing dissent against a party chief is not ‘crossing the floor’. He is ‘staying on the floor'”, he submitted.In fact, the judgment had advocated the need to strike a balance to protect inner-party dissent, he submitted. Protesting against the party while staying within the party cannot be regarded as giving up party membership.”Justice Venkatachaliah had observed in Kihoto judgment that this (inner party protest) is a grey area of 10th schedule. The 10th schedule law has to evolve”, he submitted.”Defection is when you leave Party A and joint Party B. Intra-party differences were not regarded as defection in Kihoto judgment”, he added.Salve asserted that there was no jurisdictional fact in existence enabling the Speaker to invoke Tenth Schedule against the 19 MLAs. The refusal to attend party meetings, in violation of the chief whip’s directions, cannot be construed as giving up of party membership by any stretch of imagination.”Chief Whip of the party sits inside the house and not outside. Whip is applicable only to house proceedings…A party member is free to defy the party whip direction outside the house. Kihoto nowhere says that defying party whip outside house amounts to defection”, he said.Responding to the argument that the Court cannot interfere before a decision is taken by the Speaker, Salve submitted that there was no absolute bar against Court reviewing the Speaker’s action anterior to the final decision. There can be such interference in exceptional circumstances. ‘Mala fides’ was a ground available to approach the Court for such relief, he stressed.Salve highlighted the fact that the Speaker had appeared before the Court and vociferously stated that he was entitled to look into the materials produced by the complainant, the party whip. This, according to Salve, showed that Speaker has already made up his mind. Since the Speaker is already prejudiced, the petitioners are constrained to approach the High Court, he said.”If a group of MLAs say that the Party President is incompetent, and the party president complains to Speaker that they have defected, and the Speaker issues notice for disqualification, can they not approach the Court against it?”, he asked.He advanced the argument that when Speaker issues show-cause notices under Tenth Schedule on outlandish complaints and on extraneous reasons, the Court can interfere.”Even if the complaint allegations are assumed to be true, they will only constitute a case of inner party dissent. There is no case under 10th schedule”, he said.”Statement that we will bring down the Chief Minister’s government and will bring our own government with the same party is part of right to dissent. Intra-party dissent, however shrill it may be, until the moment it goes to the extent of supporting another party, cannot be a ground to even start disqualification proceedings under 10th schedule”, he added.He asserted that issuing disqualification notices for expressing inner-party dissent is a violation of fundamental right to freedom of speech.”If Speakers are permitted to act against legislators for speaking against party chief, that goes against right to dissent”, he submitted.Intra-party dissent, however shrill it may be, until the moment it goes to the extent of supporting another party, cannot be a ground to even start disqualification proceedings under 10th schedule : [email protected] @SachinPilot @ashokgehlot51 #RajasthanPoliticalCrisis— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 20, 2020After Salve concluded his arguments, the bench rose for the day. It will hear Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi for the petitioners, and the intervenors in the case tomorrow morning.The MLAs have time till 5.30 PM tomorrow for submitting their replies to the show-cause notices.[Rajasthan Crisis] ‘Court Cannot Interfere Before Speaker Decides On Disqualification’ : Sr Adv Singhvi Opposes Maintainability Of Sachin Pilot’s PleaEarlier in the day, the Court had heard Senior Advocates Dr. A M Singhvi for the Speaker, and Devadatt Kamat for the Congress Whip, Manoj Joshi.While Singhvi argued against Court interfering before Speaker taking a decision, Kamat submitted that the petitioners should be construed to have voluntarily left the party from their conducts such as open statements against the government and the refusal to attend party meetings.Kamat referring to a Full Bench decision of Madras HC reported in AIR 1969 Madras 10. The Court refused to entertain a petition seeking writ of prohibition to prevent the Speaker from initiating contempt proceedings against a member for breach of privilege.#SachinPilot— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 20, 2020During the hearing, Chief Justice Mahanty orally observed that whip can only apply to house proceedings, and not to party meetings.Also, when the Chief Justice expressed surprise when he was told that two of the petitioners were suspended for anti-party activities.”You say these members have voluntarily given up their membership of the party. Now you have issued suspension against them. The assumption behind suspension is that they are members. Either they are members of your party, or not members. It cannot be both ways”, the Chief Justice remarked.The bench started hearing the matter on Friday(July 17) afternoon. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_img By News Highland – October 4, 2019 Homepage BannerNews Facebook DL Debate – 24/05/21 Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Pinterest Irish Water working in partnership with Donegal County Council is replacing approximately 5km of ageing water mains at Three Trees, Quigleys Point and Cabry areas of Inishowen.The route of the water main runs along the R238 regional road and L-1951-1 local road via Quigleys Point Village and will also extend into side roads to facilitate connections to existing water mains.Removing the existing old cast iron from the public water network and replacing them with new plastic pipes will reduce the risk of contamination.Replacing the ageing water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area.These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future.Works have commenced and are said to be progressing well. It is expected that initial section of pipe installation and temporary reinstatement works to Quigley’s Point will last for approximately 9 weeks with works from Quigley’s point towards Redcastle to follow on from this for approximately 8 weeks.Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. The works may involve some short-term water shut offs and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to any planned water shut offs.Traffic management will be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.Irish Water says that it understands that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works may cause.The contractor will be monitoring traffic build up during peak times in the morning and evening and will switch to a manned stop/go control should there be an unacceptable build-up of traffic.

first_imgThe presence of ice shelf basal channels has been noted in a number of Antarctic and Greenland ice shelves, but their impact on basal melting is not fully understood. Here we use the Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model to investigate the effect of ice-shelf basal channels on oceanic melt rate for an idealised ice shelf resembling the floating tongue of Petermann Glacier in Greenland. The introduction of basal channels prevents the formation of a single geostrophically balanced boundary current; instead the flow is diverted up the right-hand (Coriolis-favoured) side of each channel, with a return flow in the opposite direction on the lefthand side. As the prescribed number of basal channels is increased the mean basal melt rate decreases, in agreement with previous studies. For a small number of relatively wide channels the sub-ice flow is found to be a largely geostrophic horizontal circulation. The reduction in melt rate is then caused by an increase in the relative contribution of weakly-melting channel crests and keels. For a larger number of relatively narrow channels, the sub-ice flow changes to a vertical overturning circulation. This change in circulation results in a weaker sensitivity of melt rates to channel size. The transition between the two regimes is governed by the Rossby radius of deformation. Our results explain why basal channels play an important role in regulating basal melting, increasing the stability of ice shelves.last_img read more
