The jeweller, used by celebrities including Elton John and Naomi Campbell, launched a new lower-priced silver range last month, which it said had been well received. For the March to September period, the company posted a pre-tax loss of £877,330 compared with a loss of £1.1m a year ago. The company said its shop in the Royal Exchange in the City was among those with a loyal client list. Chief executive Barbara Snoad said: “The new range is helping us and people are willing to buy quality items at a reasonable price.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Bahrain chaos sends oil up

first_img FOUR people have been killed in Bahrain and 230 injured as the military took control of the kingdom’s capital, Manama, in a violent crackdown on widespread unrest.The chaos sent the price of Brent crude oil to a 28-month high of $104 a barrel yesterday, while gold also rallied.Following Egyptian protesters’ successful removal of President Hosni Mubarak, protesters in Bahrain are demanding that President Ali Abdullah Saleh, a US-supported Sunni, give up power in the Shia-majority state. They are venting fury over Sunni dominance of government positions and grinding poverty among the island’s Shia population.While some Western observers said that the protests are a blow to those who argue that Islam and democracy are incompatible, others are concerned that the spread of disorder could help a power-grab by radical Islamists. The sectarian nature of Bahrain’s unrest could strike a chord in Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter.

Carlsberg rebrands in bid to double profits by 2015

first_img CARLSBERG, the world’s fourth-biggest brewer, is adapting a new global slogan in hopes of doubling its brand’s profits by 2015, the company announced yesterday. The new slogan – “that calls for a Carlsberg” – replaces one of advertising’s most famous taglines: “Probably the best beer in the world,” originally voiced by actor Orson Welles. Chief executive Jorgen Buhl Rasmussen said that while Carlsberg’s green logo is known around the world, its sales do not measure up to its brand recognition. Carlsberg’s operating profit rose from 9.39bn Danish kroner (£1.1bn) in 2009 to 10.25bn Danish kroner in 2010. Carlsberg said it hopes the new branding will help it reach its goal to become the fastest-growing global beer company.

The GSK share price has been rising. Here’s what I’m doing now

first_img Christopher Ruane | Thursday, 18th March, 2021 | More on: GSK Shares in GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) have risen about 8% so far this month. That might not sound dramatic, but they started the month close to their year low, so a move upwards is welcome. Even now, the GSK share price is down almost 10% over the past 12 months.Here I’ll look at what I think is causing the share price movement and what I plan to do now for my own portfolio.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…Some good newsOne reason I think the share price has started to move up is that the company has had some good news on Covid-19 treatments. So far the company has been lagging in the vaccine race. But a report last week said the treatment it has been developing with Vir Biotechnology is highly efficacious.Secondly, I think some shareholders feel that the sell-off in the pharma giant was simply overdone. Inflation concerns have sparked a positive rerating of many value shares. I’m not surprised that this blue chip pharma giant looks like good value to some bargain hunters. Its plan to split off its consumer business from the pharma business isn’t to everyone’s liking. But the company clearly believes it could help create more value overall.Currently, that reasoning suggests, the company may suffer from a sort of conglomerate discount. That means the sum of the parts may be greater than the whole. In his shareholder letter this year, Warren Buffett defined a conglomerate as “a negative term applied to holding companies that own a hodge-podge of unrelated businesses”. I don’t think that quite matches GSK but its range of assets, from over-the-counter tobacco cessation products like Nicotinell to its shingles vaccine Shingrix, does indeed look challenging to manage efficiently within one organization.Dividend maintenanceOne attractive thing about the current GSK share price is it offers a dividend yield of 6%. For a FTSE 100 stalwart, I find that highly attractive.However, the company has already indicated that the breakup will likely result in a lower total dividend. In itself I don’t think that is necessarily bad – even with a cut, the dividend yield might still be competitive.My concern is more about dividend coverage. The company has held the dividend flat for eight years. I think that reflects an inability to grow earnings and cash flow consistently to support dividend growth.What I’d do now about the GSK share priceI’ve been watching the GSK share price for months. I often find it tempting to try to time the markets and get in at the bottom price of a share. But in practice, getting the most attractive entry point is usually up to chance. I’d rather invest in great companies at good prices, as Buffett advises, than miss an opportunity because I am trying to save a few pence more.However, for now I am going to keep GSK on my watchlist, but not buy.I think it’s a good company but right now it doesn’t look like a great company to me. Its pharma portfolio and pipeline is decent but it doesn’t excite me. The breakup could release value, but equally it might not go as smoothly as hoped. It’s the world’s largest vaccine maker by revenue, but on Covid-19 vaccines it’s been beaten on speed by nimbler competitors. christopherruane has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Joe Van Niekerk yellow carded for double high tackle

first_imgSaturday Jan 9, 2010 Joe Van Niekerk yellow carded for double high tackle After a few days without updates, Rugbydump is back online today and will get updates rolling again within the next few days, starting with this pretty amusing clip from the Top 14. Last weekend Clermont hosted Toulon in what turned out to be a severe hiding from the home side as they ran out 39-3 victors at the Stade Marcel Michelin. They ran in five tries against a Toulon side lacking direction, with flyhalf Jonny Wilkinson missing penalties and eventually leaving the field at halftime. His replacement Sebastien Fauque kicked a dropgoal, but that was all Toulon could muster as Clermont scored 29 unanswered points in the second half. Matters were made worse as Toulon captain Joe Van Niekerk was yellow carded for committing what can only be described as two high tackles. First he pulled fullback Anthony Floch down by the neck, then clothes-lined winger Napolioni Nalaga. It’s hard to tell which offense the ref sent him to the cooler for, but both high tackles would have comfortably earned him ten minutes on the sideline. Dirty, yet amusing for some reason.Time: 01:46 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Dan Carter finishes off stunning length of the field Racing 92 try

first_imgMonday Mar 14, 2016 Dan Carter finishes off stunning length of the field Racing 92 try Dan Carter finished off a stunning Racing 92 counter-attacking try as they beat Stade Francais 34-16 in a Top 14 derby on Saturday. The win over their rivals keeps them at the top of the table, thanks in part to Carter but also the likes of Brice Dulin, who was brilliant on the day.Carter actually limped off injured later in the match, but this first half effort was fantastic to watch, as Joe Rokocoko kicked things off in their 22m, then Casey Laulala and Antonie Claassen linked up, before setting All Black legend Carter away.He beat one man then fended another before diving over beneath the posts.The try was sensational to watch but there were question marks over the legality of it, specifically the pass from Laulala that appeared to drift forward, as you can see below.The graphic above may be a bit deceptive, as the ball can actually end up ahead of where it was passed from, as long as it doesn’t come forward out of the hands. The official definition of a forward pass is described as: “If the arms of the player passing the ball move towards the opposing team’s dead ball line“With this one, opinions may be divided. Whatever the case, it was a great try and nice to see the Kiwis all linking up, as well as a South African-French forward in there too.As for the rest of the match, Brice Dulin set up a brilliant try for Mike Phillips, J ohan Goosen scored a great individual try, and then Dulin started and finished another excellent try of his own. On the negative side, and obviously not helping their cause any, Sakaria Taulafo was shown a red card for a dangerous spear tackle on Chris Masoe.View the Carter try above and then all the others, including the red card, in the highlights belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Medidata Launches Sensor Cloud, Ushering in Next Generation Solution for Connected Devices and Wearable…

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 TAGS  Twitter WhatsApp Medidata Launches Sensor Cloud, Ushering in Next Generation Solution for Connected Devices and Wearable Sensors in Clinical Trials WhatsApp Pinterest Local NewsBusiness NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– Medidata, a Dassault Systèmes company, today announced the launch of Sensor Cloud, a transformative platform for managing a broad range of sensor and digital health technology data during the clinical trial process. Sensor Cloud seamlessly integrates with Medidata Rave Clinical CloudTM and supports continuous patient data collection from both Medidata and third-party medical-grade sensors. This innovation will provide a broader and deeper view into the patient experience. “With the ability to measure a wide variety of biometric data including vital signs, movement, sleep patterns and more, Sensor Cloud presents an unparalleled opportunity for researchers to derive new insights from vast amounts of data,” said Anthony Costello, president, Patient Cloud at Medidata. “As sensor usage in clinical trials is projected to surge up to 70% by 2025 1, it is imperative that we create the platform needed to rapidly standardize and integrate sensor data in order to harness the full power of these technologies for the benefit of patients.” Following Medidata’s recent acquisition of digital biomarker business MC10, the launch of Sensor Cloud further strengthens the company’s unique data ingestion, analytics and insights capabilities that currently provide differentiated value to patients, trial sites, trial sponsors and contract research organizations (CROs). Using Sensor Cloud, researchers can access sensor data through a single Application Programming Interface (API, a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other) and integrate new sensor technologies in weeks rather than months. Sensor Cloud provides the ability to:Enable greater insights through proprietary analytics including novel digital biomarker discoveryLower costs and enable greater operational efficiency by making it easier for patients to share data and stay enrolled in trialsStandardize data from ingestion through delivery via a common data modelReduce site and patient burden by cutting down on-site visits, time, and travel through a more flexible engagement model “Social distancing and other prevention protocols necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic have greatly accelerated the adoption of remote technologies as a way to ensure the continuation of clinical trials,” added Costello. “These advancements will continue to grow in popularity, outlasting the pandemic and, as trials continue to improve and become more patient-centric, communication and engagement become increasingly important. Patient involvement and the quality of the data generated by sensors will be integral to the overall evolution of this innovative research model.” In 2021, Medidata will continue to expand on its growing list of supported devices and sensors that includes BioStamp Ⓡ, ActiGraph, and BioIntellisense TM. This growing library of high fidelity connected devices in combination with Sensor Cloud’s analytics will advance researchers’ understanding of disease progression and treatment effects in the home, while enhancing the clinical trial experience for patients.

Tight market forces firms to halt graduate job plans

first_imgA quarter of employers have reduced the number of graduates they are lookingto recruit because of the deteriorating economic climate, research reveals. The study for the Association of Graduate Recruiters shows that one in fivefirms have deferred up to 60 graduate job offers. Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the Association of Graduate Recruiters,said the findings reveal that “these are uncertain times” forgraduate recruiters. “The reduction in graduate jobs suggests that we are in for a muchtighter graduate market. Recruiters are still active, but are unsure about andunwilling to quote numbers,” he said. According to the survey of 166 employers, eight out of 10 companies havedeferred graduate jobs for 12 months. One in 10 firms have withdrawn joboffers. Graduate Recruitment in an Uncertain Labour Market finds that although 13per cent of organisations are increasing graduate intake, there has been anoverall 5.5 per cent decrease in the number of graduate vacancies. Gilleard urges employers to defer rather than withdraw job offers wheneverpossible. He said, “Not withdrawing the offer still gives them theopportunity to get back some return on their investment, as graduaterecruitment is an expensive business. “When I entered the labour market over 30 years ago, I had a job offerwithdrawn and I have never forgotten it, although I’m sure that companies onlywithdraw an offer when they have no alternative.” Gilleard warns recruiters to keep a high profile in the graduate recruitmentmarket so they are ready to attract the best talent when the economy recovers. www.agr.org.uk By Paul Nelson Tight market forces firms to halt graduate job plansOn 23 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.
