first_img Carlsberg takes hit from Russian tax payments KCS-content Monday 21 February 2011 7:16 pm Share whatsapp DANISH brewer Carlsberg blamed a sharp drop in fourth-quarter profit on an excise duty rise in its biggest market Russia and falling Eastern European sales.The world’s fourth biggest brewer said yesterday that organic operating profit growth declined significantly in its key Eastern European market, although it was strong in Northern and Western Europe and Asia in the fourth-quarter.Despite the drop, Carlsberg’s B shares rose by 0.8 per cent to close at 566 kroner following the below-forecast figures. Beer volumes in Eastern Europe declined organically by nine per cent, mainly driven by destocking in the first quarter of 2010, and significant price increases in Russia following a 200 per cent excise duty increase from 1 January, 2010. That had led distributors to build stocks at the end of 2009, ahead of the duty increase, the company said. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe Wrap’Sex and the City’ Sequel Series at HBO Max Adds 4 More ReturningThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Matthew Fitzpatrick, an Apopka resident and former candidate for the District 7 Orange County Public School Board, announced on Facebook that he was running for OCPS Board Chairman.Matthew FitzpatrickFitzpatrick joins Oak Hill Elementary School teacher Robert Allen Prater, and District 6 OCPS School Board member Nancy Robbinson in the race.Bill Sublette is the current OCPS Board Chairman but announced he was vacating the seat in September of 2017 in order to run for Orange County Mayor. However, in January Sublette quit the mayor’s race.Fitzpatrick has been in education for 23 years—12 as a teacher, and 11 as an administrator. He worked at Apopka Memorial Middle School, Ocoee, Boone, and Apopka High Schools, Orange Technical College-Westside Campus in Winter Garden, and for two years as the District Athletic Director.He ran for the OCPS District 7 School Board seat in 2016, placing second in a field of four, but eventually losing to incumbent Christine Moore in the general election runoff.He made this statement on his Facebook page yesterday:“I stopped by the Orange County Elections Headquarters after work today…I decided to jump back in the ring and give it one more try. To borrow a line from Jimmy Chitwood from the movie Hoosiers, “I don’t know if it will make any change, but I figure it’s time for me to start playing ball.” If you aren’t familiar with that movie, what it means is…It’s time for me to start officially campaigning again.

Running for a leadership position in education seems natural, and I believe it is more of a calling than anything else. I believe I have both the heart and the experience to help lead our school district to even greater levels of success.While there are many positives in our school district that we can highlight and showcase, I believe we also have much room for improvement when it comes to the learning and working conditions of our students, teachers, and staff members. I want our school district to become the most desirable place to both work and learn in our state…even in our country. Together, we can do this…it’s the power of We over Me.

The number of people who feel that charities play an essential role in society has increased from 30% in 2010 to 37% this year.In the same period, public trust in charities has remained high, with only the police and doctors being more trusted. Three quarters (74%) agree that charities are trustworthy and act in the public interest.Fundraising methodsFundraising of course has a significant impact on the public’s attitude to charities and their levels of trust. Of those questioned, 67% agree that some fundraising methods used by charities make them uncomfortable. This has increased from 60% in 2010.The Commission’s quantitative research did not delve further to find out which types of fundraising made people feel uncomfortable. However, supporting qualitative research, based on in-depth interviews with a small number of people, suggests that people dislike “aggressive” forms of fundraising. IpsosMORI’s previous research also reports that people say they dislike negative emotive imagery, preferring positive imagery that highlights the impact donations might have on the lives of beneficiaries.There is also a high level of public concern (59%) about the amount of money that charities are believed to spend on salaries and administration.What can charities do to retain trust?Tell them how you spend their money and benefit the public: The public’s view on the importance of communicating key information to them has remained unchanged: 96% of people surveyed said that charities must provide the public with information on ‘how they spend their money’ and 94% said they must do so on ‘how they benefit the public’.The most common reason why some charities are trusted less is not knowing how their money is spent: 36% who trust certain charities less than others mentioned this concern.Experiencing what you do counts: the most common reason given (by 38%) for trusting a charity more is having seen or experienced what they do. Similarly, familiarity with charities has a strong bearing on trust with 82% of the public trusting charities more if they have heard of them.Local impact helps: 59% of people agree they trust charities more if they are providing services within their local communityEngage with the media: The role of the media seems to cut both ways: 22% of people cite media coverage about how charities spend donations as a reason why they think their confidence has decreased in the past two years. Yet, amongst people whose confidence in charities has increased, 8% attribute this to media stories about how charities spend their donations.Commenting on the report, Dame Suzi Leather, Chair of the Charity Commission, said: “I am delighted that these research findings confirm that public trust and confidence in charities remains high. During these difficult economic times for charities, I hope the sector will take heart from this vote of confidence, and be reassured that the public recognises the essential role charities play in our society.”A Commission spokesperson added that they hoped that “all charities [become] aware of and understand the joint responsibility that the charity sector and charity regulator have in protecting the current high levels of public trust and confidence in charities”.Ipsos MORI spoke to 1,142 adults aged 18+ in England and Wales from 4-21 May 2012.

Hurt says Better Incomes for Indiana Crop Farmers

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Hurt says Better Incomes for Indiana Crop Farmers Hurt says Better Incomes for Indiana Crop Farmers By Andy Eubank – Aug 14, 2016 Previous articleAgricultural Innovation Yesterday, Today, and TomorrowNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue analyizes crop reportUSDA’s August crop report says big crops, maybe records, are coming, nationally and here in Indiana. Hoosier farmers are projected to average corn yields of 187 bushels per acre, with a U.S. average at 175.1. Soybeans are estimated at 55 bushels per acre in the state, outpacing a national 48.9 bushels per acre.So, crops are big and that will continue to weigh on prices. But Purdue ag economist Chris Hurt says here in Indiana there can be some optimism.“The silver lining probably for Indiana is that we’re going to see improvement in incomes for crop farms. Now most are going to immediately assume that’s because the yields are high, but the other problem this year is prices are probably going to be pretty low. So nationally we see an 11% increase in the size of production, but a 13% drop in price. this means revenue on an average across the United States would be lower. The difference for Indiana is that we had poor yields on corn last year. A hundred-fifty bushels and now we bounce back to 187.”He said production is up so much, outpacing the drop in prices, that revenues will be higher than a year ago.“Across the state that’s about $650 million more revenue this year on the corn and soybean crop. Incomes we think from the crop sector have been very low, maybe around $600 million, so we could almost double what’s been very tiny incomes from the cropping sector. Now this isn’t back to real strong returns,” Hurt added, “but we think it’s going to feel a little better on crop farms.”Of course, that’s crop farms that really do realize the excellent production potential.Hurt was part of a panel at the Indiana State Fair Friday crunching and then discussing the numbers. He was joined by Purdue Extension corn specialist Bob Nielsen who isn’t convinced about the Indiana production estimate.“I guess I’d say that I’m a little surprised by how high the estimates are, but it’s certainly not without precedent, and it’s certainly within the range of yields that we might expect, given the kind of crop condition ratings that we’ve had around the state this year,” he said.Extension soybean specialist Shaun Casteel joined them, and like Nielsen, he said the next 30-45 days will go a long way in determining whether we really see records broken.

(these benches will be hearing cases on different dates)On Thursday, the division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice MS Karnik was hearing a petition filed by Arnab Goswami in the Anvay Naik case and Senior Advocate Aabad Ponda, appearing for Arnab sought leave to amend his petition and submitted that Senior Advocate Harish Salve wishes to argue the case, hence he requested for a virtual hearing in the matter. Justice Shinde observed-“The reason why the High Court administration started virtual hearing again is because, even in my view, after the lockdown advocates from all over the country have been arguing cases. Moreover, the times have changed and many High Courts have gone paperless. So let us see, what other advocates have to say”At which point, Senior Advocate Amit Desai, who is appearing on behalf of the State Government pointed out how most hearings in Delhi High Court are still via video conferencing. Personally, I prefer not to venture out, Desai added. Later, the bench allowed the matter to be listed for a virtual hearing on December 16.The High Court’s decision came after several advocates and the Bombay Bar Association had written to the Chief Justice on November 29 requesting him to modify the order dated November 27. In the said representation, BBA stated that it received feedback and responses from a large number of its member advocates “expressing grave concern on the making of physical appearances mandatory in so many Courts in the given circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.”Moreover, the representation states-“The Standing Committee of BBA feels that in the current situation of COVID-19, the opening of physical Courts should be done gradually and in a phase-wise manner – initially in a hybrid form, giving an option of appearing through the virtual platform if members are unable to appear physically.”Click Here To Download Notice[Read Notice]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
