SABMiller boosted by Asia

first_img whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp BREWING giant SABMiller beat forecasts with a three per cent rise in beer volumes in the last three months of 2010, boosted by growth in Africa and Asia.The London-based brewer of Miller Lite, Peroni and Grolsch said that beer price rises helped boost its quarterly revenue by six per cent.Strong volumes growth in Asia and Africa offset volume dips in Europe and both North and South America in its October to December third quarter which is heavily dependent on summer beer drinking in the southern markets of South Africa and Latin America.Investors were looking for slightly higher beer volumes. Second quarter volumes had been up three per cent after a one-per cent first quarter fall.The brewer, which earns over 80 per cent of its profits in emerging markets Colombia, South Africa, Poland and China, is seeing a strong recovery in many of these markets, while mature markets are being held back by high unemployment hitting consumption. Columbian sales were held back by flooding in the country.But third quarter lager volumes were up 16 per cent in China as it continues to be the key growth driver.Growth in Britain and Ukraine helped offset falls in Russia and the Czech Republic as its premium brands Pilsner Urquell and Grolsch sold well.“Trading momentum, as evidenced by today’s trading update from SABMiller, remains strong; while regional comments from the group reinforces our pecking order among the brewers – SABMiller is our top pick in beer,” said analyst Simon Hales at brokers Evolution Securities.The brewer’s shares closed 1.7 per cent higher at 2,209p after the results impressed investors.Minimum booze price plans on the tableTHE COALITION yesterday unveiled plans for a minimum price for alcohol in England and Wales.Ministers want to ban shops and bars from selling drinks for less than the tax paid on them.That will mean a can of lager must cost at least 38 pence and a one-litre bottle of vodka at least £10.71.Health campaigners say that is too low to have an impact, but the drinks industry described the proposals as a “pragmatic solution”.“By introducing this new proposal we are sending a clear message that the government will not stand by and let drink be sold so cheaply that it leads to a greater risk of health harms or drunken violence,” said Home Office minister James Brokenshire in a statement.Last year, the Scottish Parliament rejected plans for a minimum price per unit of alcohol of 45p, because it was feared the move would penalise responsible drinkers.

England win the 2011 Dubai Sevens – Highlights from Day two

first_imgMonday Dec 5, 2011 England win the 2011 Dubai Sevens – Highlights from Day two Defending champions England won the Dubai leg of the HSBC IRB World Series Sevens with a 29-12 victory over France. Man of the Tournament Mat Turner scored twice, after his team had beaten New Zealand and Fiji en route to the final. Dan Norton, Isoa Damudamu, and Rob Vickerman also scored in the final as the team in orange lifted the spirits of England rugby fans after what has been a tough few weeks. Women’s rugby was also on good form as the Test team won their three match series vs New Zealand.“Mat’s acceleration off the base was phenomenal. He was a huge difference in the side. Last year Ollie Linvey-Haig lit it up for us, this year Mat got all the plaudits and rightly so,” said coach Ben Ryan on Mat Turner’s two tries and great performance throughout the tournament.“We had gas at the base, gas on the wing with Dan Norton and with Isoa Damu in the middle as the glue that connected the two together. Our backline finally got going,” he added.Australia won the Plate after beating South Africa, while Fiji beat Argentina in the Bronze final. Scotland convincingly beat the USA in the Bowl final, and Samoa beat Kenya to take the Shield.If you spotted any particular moment over the weekend you think should be featured on here, please get in touch with as many details as possible and we’ll take it from there.

Amara Al-Khitabi

first_img to go further Middle East – North Africa Libya The editor of the privately-owned Tripoli newspaper Al-Umma, Amara Al-Khitabi is a victim of Libya’s penal code and, in particular, article 195, which remains in effect although it is very repressive. Aged 67, he was arrested on 21 November 2012 and was held for more than four months, becoming the first Libyan journalist to be jailed after the fall of the Gaddafi regime. His crime was publishing a list of 87 judges and prosecutors suspected of corruption and then refusing to reveal his source. Charged with libel and “insulting the judicial system,” he faced a sentence of 3 to 15 years in prison under article 195. Although in poor health, he went on hunger strike. After being released, he was initially forbidden to leave the country to seek treatment. It was only on 21 August 2013 that he was allowed to travel to Jordan. Article 195 was recently amended, but only to adapt it to the post-Gaddafi era. It remains as draconian as ever and Khitabi is still facing a possible 15-year sentence.

American Bar Association Re-Approves Pasadena City College Paralegal Studies Program

first_imgEducation American Bar Association Re-Approves Pasadena City College Paralegal Studies Program By Gilbert Rivera, Publications Supervisor Published on Thursday, September 3, 2015 | 7:29 pm 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it The American Bar Association has granted re-approval to the Pasadena City College Paralegal Studies Program.ABA approval is an intensive process that evaluates the quality of the paralegal program, and only accepts those that meet specific standards consistent with ABA-approved guidelines. Since 1995, the PCC Paralegal Studies Program has met those defined and demanding standards for ABA approval.In order to obtain or retain approval by the ABA, a program of education of paralegals must demonstrate that its program is consistent with sound educational policies by establishing that it operates in accordance with guidelines.Schools that successfully complete the ABA approval process have shown a definite commitment to their program through research, assessments, meeting with the stakeholders, completing the application process, covering expenses for site evaluation teams and paying application, processing, renewal, and other fees. This is a considerable investment and many students have greater confidence in their education when they know that they are not the only ones investing in it.Although having an ABA-approved education is not absolutely necessary, students should be aware that many employers see completion of an ABA-approved program as a plus, as do some paralegal professional associations when qualifying candidates for certification.About PCC’s Paralegal ProgramPasadena City College Paralegal Studies program started in 1973 and has been continuously ABA-approved since 1995. Students in the Program work towards a Certificate of Achievement or an Associate in Science degree with flexible scheduling for day and evening (with a Certificate of Achievement is awarded upon completion of all required Paralegal Studies core courses).The paralegal curriculum and legal coursework is designed to provide students with paralegal skills that are most in demand by employers such as comprehensive understanding of law, practical skills and technical proficiency needed to compete in today’s legal environment, combining a solid background in liberal arts with a range of legal specialty courses.PCC’s faculty is comprised of local attorneys and paralegals who bring to the classroom a wealth of experience and talent. The program is designed to provide a high-quality, academically-robust learning environment that encourages, supports, and facilitates student learning and success by educating students to complete paralegal tasks, to cope with case management, and to understand client relationships.For more information, visit www.pccparalegal.com.

Parents create lasting legacy for tragic Jemma

first_imgby Kathy Masterson WhatsApp #WATCH Shannon-side Memorial stone unveiled to Anthony Foley in Limerick Advertisement Limerick memorial to heroes of the Great War Print Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE parents of Monaleen pharmacy student Jemma O’Sullivan, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2010 aged just 22, have sponsored a special award at the University of Sunderland to leave a lasting legacy for their daughter.Vincent and Margaret O’Sullivan this week presented the Jemma O’Sullivan award for care and compassion in the practice of pharmacy to student Haihua Sih.Vincent said it was “great for the whole family to know that Jemma’s legacy will live on at Sunderland through this award. She was very focused on caring for others; compassion was what she was all about.“For us, the award is very important. It’s a way for us to celebrate what Jemma wanted to do in life and we felt she was here today in some shape or form, sitting in the stand watching the graduation ceremony.”Jemma was killed when a lorry crashed into the vehicle in which she was travelling near Doncaster in the UK in September 2010. The lorry driver was jailed for five years for causing death by dangerous driving.Since the tragedy, Jemma’s family and friends have kept her memory alive by engaging in fundraising activities. They have raised more than €100,000 to support a HIV/AIDS hospice pharmacy in South Africa, as Jemma had previously volunteered at a HIV hospice creche.Vincent and Margaret also set up a new initiative called ‘Jemma Bear’ in conjunction with South Yorkshire Police. Vincent explained: “Some 500 teddy bears have been produced in memory of Jemma and will be used by police family liaison officers across South Yorkshire to comfort children involved in collisions on the road.” Email TAGSHaihua SihJemma BearJemma O’SullivanMargaret O’SullivanmemorialMonaleenUniversity of SunderlandVincent O’Sullivan ‘Monument to British imperialism’ in People’s Park NewsCommunityParents create lasting legacy for tragic JemmaBy Guest Writer – July 17, 2014 950 Previous articleLimerick student project blasts off for outer spaceNext articleA healthy future in store for Limerick Guest Writerhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR A voice for truth that wouldn’t be silenced – Brave Adrienne wanted an end to gagging orders Twitterlast_img read more

EEF sends delegation to change temps directive

first_img Previous Article Next Article EEF sends delegation to change temps directiveOn 3 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Officials from the Engineering Employers’ Federation are travelling toStrasbourg tomorrow to join forces with their German counterparts to call forchanges to be made to the draft EU Agency Workers’ Directive. The EEF is concerned that the directive, which as currently drafted willgive temporary workers the right to the same pay and conditions as permanentstaff after six weeks in employment, will damage UK workforce flexibility. The delegation, which will also include representatives from the EEF’smember firms, will meet with the Socialist MEP responsible for the directive,Ieke van den Burg, and her counterparts from the Conservative, Liberal andGreen groups. David Yeandle, deputy director of employment policy for the EEF, said theemployers’ body and its German sister organisation would be calling for memberstates to be given flexibility in implementing the directive. Yeandle said the EEF wants temporary workers’ pay and conditions to becompared with other agency workers, not permanent staff. If this is not acceptable to the European Parliament, the EEF is calling forthe qualification period, when agency workers’ pay and conditions must matchthose of permanent staff, to be extended to at least 12 months. Yeandle also said that the agency workers directive as drafted would make itharder for EEF members to employ specialist temporary staff who are wellqualified and rewarded. “The three or four individual companies which will be attending themeeting will be able to raise the real practical difficulties they will face asthe directive stands, and its impact on labour market opportunities,” hesaid. The directive will have to be considered by the European Parliament and theCouncil of Ministers before it is implemented. www.eef.org.ukBy Ben Willmott Comments are closed.
