The firm said operating profit was £19.5m, up 73 per cent, from £11.3m last year, with an improving economy boosting business travel.Revenue was up nine per cent from £155.3m last year to £169.2m at the end of September. Meanwhile, pre-tax profit stood at £15.3m, more than double last year’s £7.5m. Hogg said both client spending and travel bookings were up 18 per cent in real terms in the six months to 30 September compared to a year earlier, reflecting strengthening confidence amongst many of its business travel clients. Net new client wins included Aviva, Avon and Grant Thornton. Hogg said there was now “firm evidence” of an emerging recovery in corporate travel. Passenger demand – a reflection of business and consumer confidence – was 10.1 per cent higher in October than a year earlier, and is now five per cent above pre-crisis levels, airline industry body the International Air Transport Association said last week.Hogg Robinson’s finance director Julian Steadman said: “With the strong client base behind us returning to normal, we are flagging to the market that expectations for the full-year will be slightly ahead of what they thought it would be before.” whatsapp Tuesday 30 November 2010 8:37 pm Show Comments ▼ Sharecenter_img KCS-content Hogg Robinson sees boost from recovery Tags: NULL whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

The broker thinks that success in North America and in new markets should offset any impact from recent natural disasters in Japan, and is expecting 4.9 per cent organic growth in the first half of 2011. However, the broker sees a continued risk of public sector spending cuts hitting growth.BPCitigroup rates the oil major “medium risk” with a 12-month target price of 525p. The broker sees last week’s arbitration ruling against BP as a setback but not the end of the dispute. Citi believes BP AAR’s respective stakes in TNK-BP have a book value of around $10bn, and could fetch more in the current market, though the broker thinks BP needs to maintain relations with AAR to protect the value of the firm.ESSAR ENERGYMorgan Stanley has cut its target price on the India-focused power firm by two per cent to 415p but maintains its “underweight” rating. The broker has reduced its forecasts following news of delays to new projects announced last week, but remains impressed by the firm’s ambitious growth plans. There is still scope for further delays and forecast reductions, Morgan Stanley adds.

Whether the Bishop chooses to put her identity out there or others repeat it in articles about her, its who she is.We should allow each other to represent ourselves the way we feel best, and if its ok with the individual, not be concerned with that reiteration in press, common parlance or characterizations. in searching for an email address to thank Bishop Glasspool for confirming my son this past Sunday, I stumbled on this press release. I didn’t know she was lesbian, or out, de facto. I was happy to have a woman at the altar – Her power at the pulpit and her evident love for the kids and her calling was what I identified with as a woman, a family member of a confirmand and an episcopalian fellow. As well, I love thsat our faith accepts into the priesthood women and LGBT people!It’s all down to identification. If I were lesbian and having my child confirmed, I do think I may feel a deeper connection to the process if I knew the priest entrusted with my child’s faith and journey shared a similar experience. No matter what, she blew the socks off everyone in that church! She is amazing.

She grew up in Goshen, New York, after her father became the rector of St. James Church.“Mary is a person of extraordinary ability and deep faith, a true friend, and a seasoned bishop,” New York Bishop Andrew Dietsche told delegates at the diocese’s annual convention. “She will bless us in myriad ways, and it is such a personal joy to make this announcement!”Glasspool wrote to the Diocese of Los Angeles about the announcement, saying in part that “to write that I am deeply grateful for this time of service in the Diocese of Los Angeles is an understatement.”Diocesan Bishop Jon Bruno told the diocese that “although we together feel a sense of loss and sadness at Bishop Glasspool’s departure, we can also share with her our ongoing support and appreciation for her many gifts and skills that she has shared with us so generously.” Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Pittsburgh, PA Featured Jobs & Calls Submit a Press Release Press Release Service Joanna Griner Cawley says: Rector Bath, NC Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Mary Glasspool moving to New York Miguel Rosada says: center_img An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Comments are closed.

This has seen a significant increase in supporters and the cost of recruiting members has dropped by more than 50%.”“Cats Protection deserves recognition for taking an innovative, long-term view to its fundraising,” said Heather Westgate, Managing Director at TDA. “In an environment where the long-term sustainability of legacy income is uncertain, developing a reliable source of £2 million per year has proved vital.”The overall winner will be announced on June 17 at the IDM Annual Symposium in London and other finalists include Sainsbury’s, Hewlett Packard, Tesco.com and O2.

first_imgA moving Tribute to Fidel was held in Philadelphia on Jan. 28 at the Church of the Advocate, bringing together around 175 people, both long-time activists and people new to the struggle. Cuban leader Fidel Castro died Nov. 26 at the age of 90.The Philadelphia Tribute to Fidel Organizing Committee included current and former members of the All African People’s Revolutionary Party; Coalición Fortaleza Latina Pennsylvania; International Action Center Philadelphia; the MOVE Organization; political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal; Mundo Obrero/Workers World Party of Philadelphia; Party for Socialism & Liberation, Philadelphia Branch; and the Philadelphia Coalition for REAL Justice.Coming one week into the Trump administration, the event and the unity demonstrated by the organizers were timely. While Trump is working overtime to build walls and divide people, socialist Cuba, under Fidel Castro’s leadership, is exemplary in unifying people well beyond its borders, despite the continuing U.S. economic blockade.With music, spoken word, great food and amazing speakers, tribute was paid to Fidel as well as the Cuban people. American Sign Language and English-to-Spanish interpreters were included. Video images and Cuban music were interspersed between speakers. The audience was diverse in race, age and gender.Community activist Asantewaa Nkrumah-Ture and Berta Joubert-Ceci, a member of Partido Mundo Obrero/Workers World Party, facilitated the program and gave opening remarks.Joubert-Ceci also represented the local Puerto Rican community organization Comité Boricua Filadelfia-Camden. She paid tribute to Cuba’s long-time solidarity with Puerto Rico and spoke of the coming release of Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera. A full-size cutout of Rivera adorned the wall next to a full-size poster of U.S. political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal.Speakers included Mexican immigrant rights activist Carmen Guerrero, with the Coalición Fortaleza Latina Pennsylvania, who helped lead demonstrations against Trump earlier in the week. Transgender IAC activist Mattie Boyd spoke about Cuba’s positive role in the struggle for LGBTQ liberation.Shani Akilah, of the Black and Brown Workers’ Collective, spoke on Cuba’s support for the Haitian people. Akilah’s grandfather was born in Cuba and later moved to Haiti. Karla Martin, representing PSL, addressed Cuba’s solidarity with Chile and other South American countries.Ramona Africa, minister of confrontation for the MOVE organization and sole adult survivor of the 1985 government bombing of MOVE, challenged the audience to stand up in future struggles, as her family had to do to survive.Palestinian writer and human rights activist Susan Abulhawa spoke of Cuba’s solidarity with the Palestinian people who have been without a country after Israel seized their homes in 1948. Abulhawa read from her poetry collection, “My Voice Sought in the Wind.”Gail Walker, executive director of IFCO/Pastors for Peace, described her organization’s solidarity with Cuba since 1960. IFCO, which has organized hundreds of trips to Cuba in violation of the U.S. blockade, was recently notified that the IRS revoked its tax-exempt status.Kashara White of PSL spoke of Cuba’s defense of Black Liberation Army fighter Assata Shakur. MOVE organization member Pam Africa, who visited Cuba on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal, described Cuba’s support for U.S. political prisoners.Godfrey Sithole, from the African National Congress of South Africa, addressed the long-standing friendship between Fidel Castro and Nelson Mandela and Cuba’s total support for the liberation struggle in South Africa and Angola.The program concluded with former Temple University professor Dr. Anthony Monteiro calling on the audience to continue Cuba’s example of steadfast resistance when fighting the Trump administration.

Kaul on Thursday heard Facebook India Vice President, Ajit Mohan’s challenge to the two summons issued by the Delhi Legislative Assembly’s Committee “Peace and Harmony” in connection with the Delhi riots that broke out in February 2020. The two summons were issued on 10th September 2020 and 18th September 2020 demanding Mr. Mohan to appear before the committee for testifying on the role or complicity of Facebook officials in Delhi riots. On September 23, the Court had recorded the submission made on behalf of the Chairman of the Assembly Panel that no coercive action will be taken against the Ajit Mohan for failing to appear. Senior Advocate Harish Salve appeared on behalf of Mr. Ajit Mohan today. The thrust of Mr. Salve’s submissions rested on the argument that the Committee could not have summoned him as being a third party and that the privileges of the Delhi Legislative Assembly does not include to compel appearances of non members. According to Mr. Salve, “How the privilege of the house can be reconciled with the Right to Privacy and Right to Free Speech and Expression including the Right to Silence enshrined under Part III of the Constitution?” Furthermore, Mr. Salve argued on analyzing the concept of parliamentary privilege by examining the Indian concept with the UK concept of privileges. “The word privilege means it is a shield. It is your privilege. The genesis of privilege is that the privilege of people is against the crown. They have misunderstood the notion of what is a privilege. And it can only relate to legislature and executive.” Mr. Salve submitted. Salve also submitted that the stand of the Committee on cooperative federalism is misconceived as it does not authorize the Committee to intrude upon matters reserved exclusively for the Union of India. Mr. Salve also submitted that the sole purpose of the Committee for summoning Mr. Ajit Mohan was a “politically polarized matter”. In submitting so, he argued: “The notice was sent to Mr. Ajit Mohan. That is for the Facebook to decide who will be the competent person. He has been told that “you” have been heading Facebook India and hence you will be the best suited person. They don’t want to hear facebook but Mr. Ajit Mohan. These are politically polarized narratives. I don’t want to say it.” In view of this, it was the case of Mr. Salve that Mr. Mohan, being the Facebook India Vice President, does not wish to appear before the committee as he did not want to be a part of a political debate and that this was well within his rights of remaining silent to do so. “Lets not have the concept of cooperative federalism. The committee was clear since the beginning what it wanted to do. The committee wanted to drag us because it wanted to say that Facebook was siding with the ruling government.” He argued. On the issue of dealing with complaints of hate speech, Mr. Salve argued that Indian legislature has an existing law for dealing with instances of hate speech under the Information Technology Act. While relying on the Shreya Singhal Judgment, Mr. Salve submitted that sec. 69 of the Act offers a mechanism of filing a complaint either in the court or to the police officer. “You can go to a court and take an order to take down the content or you can go to a police officer. And since you are taking down somebody’s content, it is the principle of natural justice that you hear the person and the intermediary. These are matters which are covered by law.” Salve submitted. According to Mr. Salve, regulation of Intermediaries, including in connection with the Facebook service, falls within the exclusive domain of the Union of India under Entry “communication” in the Union List (Entry 31 of List I of the Seventh Schedule). “If an organization is working in a certain way, that is for Union Government to summon us. The Legislative Assembly cannot do so. They (Committee) rely on Wall Street Journal articles which are completely polarized. This is not how the powers are to be exercised. This is abuse of powers.” He argued. Moreover, Salve went ahead to argue that a privilege is primarily meant to be shield. A privilege is considered as something necessary to enable the house to conduct its business. According to him, such privilege could extend to those who are connected with executives. “There are therefore two dimensions, first, privileges are to enable you to discharge your functions, and second, they are against the executive government. The shield of privilege is to prevent the crown, which in our system will be the executive from interfering with the working of a house.” He argued. The matter will now be heard on 27th January 2021 on Wednesday.
