Tribunals cost firms £1.6bn

first_img EMPLOYMENT tribunals cost UK businesses a staggering £1.6bn in 2010, according to new figures released today. According to Ambition, the global recruitment firm, just one in twenty HR professionals fully understands the employment tribunal process.That means the majority of firms – one in five – settle every single tribunal case before they get to court, even if they have a good chance of winning. The average cost of settling a tribunal is £5,400 while an employer who chooses to defend themselves will typically pay £8,500. That is before one counts the amount of business hours that are lost to tribunal sessions and meetings with lawyers. Tim Gilbert, UK managing director of Ambition said: “High costs, a lack of understanding and worry over bad publicity means the majority of business decide to settle claims before they end up in court”.Vince Cable, business secretary, is planning to introduce changes to make tribunals fairer for employers.

Why is the AO share price crashing?

first_img The AO (LSE:AO) share price has lost 40% of its value in the year to date. It’s now almost exactly the price it was back in October 2020. Why is this happening? Could this be a big buying opportunity for me?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…CEO John Roberts set up AO as a result of a £1 bet in a Bolton pub. The business sells appliances online, as its original name suggests. Now it’s a £1.2bn giant with operations in the UK and Germany.AO share price trading upLet’s have a look at a recent FY21 trading update from the FTSE 250 electrical retailer.The company says it delivered a “strong performance” in the last 12 months, adding 2m new customers. This includes “significant increases in revenue, a step change in profitability at both group and divisional levels [and] strong cash generation”. All without taking any government assistance in the form of a Covid-19 business loan.  Revenues jumped 62% to £1.66bn overall, and generating net cash of £57m across the year is £80.4m better than 2020’s £23.4m net debt!The company’s German arm, launched in 2014, is also expected to turn a profit this financial year. That’s better news than in 2019 when Roberts was forced to close his Dutch operation. He said at the time that AO World could expand further internationally once the German model was proven. So sales are good, cash looks strong, and the overseas experiment is finally working, it seems.So why does the AO share price look like it’s falling apart? [fool_stock_chart ticker=LSE:AO]Online to offlineThe AO share price quadrupled in 2020. That’s probably part of why it’s falling now: as countries reopen, an online-only play is overvalued. The business saw strong demand as people were forced to stay indoors through the Europe-wide lockdowns. And Roberts is betting that online is now the dominant channel for customers, and says that the company’s market has “changed as a result, forever”.I can see why Roberts thinks this way. During the pandemic, my elderly parents started buying online and having their shopping delivered. They realise now first hand how easy and cheap it is. And there is no way they are going back.But the world’s focus right now is on optimism. High streets — and therefore rivals — are opening up. Still, as a contrarian value investor, I’m seeing some new opportunities in this switch in market focus. The AO share price might just have fallen out of favour, temporarily.  The risk of buying here is that retail hasn’t, in fact, changed forever. “I expect that we will continue to be a double-digit growth business in the year ahead,” the CEO says. The AO share price could crumble if sales fail to meet these pretty spectacular targets. The other fly in the ointment is an increase in warranty plan cancellations, mentioned in AO’s Q3 results in January. The business is forecasting a one-off cash reduction of around £15m. That’s a hit to profits, right there. I’ll probably wait to hear more details, expected in the full-year results due on 16 June 2021. But I’m watching this one closely.

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_img The SaintsThe Sting Wasps will take on Saracens in the European Champions Cup semi-finals on 23 April thanks to Jimmy Gopperth’s nerves of steel. The fly-half struck a final-kick conversion from five metres in from the right touchline to take his team to a 25-24 win over an Exeter Chiefs side who had led for most of the match.Goppeth had the chance to steal the glory thanks to Charles Piutau’s try which was set up by patient team-work. It was a remarkable comeback for Wasps as they were 24-11 down with just 16 minutes of the match to go, but they did not panic and showed extraordinary belief. They now have a shot at winning Europe’s top club competition for the third time. Plaudits also go to Matt Healy of Connacht, who created two tries for team-mate Niyi Adeolokun and scored one of his own, but the Irish side fell agonisingly short of grabbing a memorable win at Grenoble, losing 33-32.So close: Matt Healy scores for Connacht in France but ended up on the losing side. (Photo: Inpho)The SinnersLook after the ballOn big occasions against top opponents you have to take all your scoring chances and Northampton Saints wing Jamie Elliott wasted one during Saturday’s Champion’s Cup quarter-final against Saracens.Elliott darted down the left touchline, battering his way through one big hit, but as he reached forward to put the ball down over the line, Brad Barritt managed to get his right hand onto Elliott’s right arm and forced him to drop the ball. If Elliott had been carrying the ball in his left hand, away from the defenders covering across, he probably would have scored but as it was he missed a chance to put Northampton ahead.Elliott was not the only sinning Saint. With Northampton trailing 22-13 in the 77th minute, JJ Hanrahan threw out a wild pass when he was tackled inside his own 22 by Duncan Taylor as his team attempted to run from their own line. He should have taken the hit and recycled, as there were other Saints on hand to help, but his reckless offload was pounced on by Chris Wyles who scored a try to put Saracens well out of reach. TAGS: Highlight Dragon’s roar: Charlie Davies celebrates the Challenge Cup win at Gloucester. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency).Rising to the Challenge Charlie Davies is the toast of Wales today after his late try took Newport Gwent Dragons to their biggest ever European win as they beat Challenge Cup holders Gloucester 23-21 on their home patch.The replacement scrum-half spotted that Gareth Evans had left the door ever so slightly ajar by joining the side of a maul which the Dragons were driving towards the Gloucester line, and he went for the gap Evans had left in the line, dived over and scored a try which Dorian Jones converted to secure the win.A hat-trick of tries from Harlequins captain Danny Care played a big part in his side’s 38-30 Challenge Cup quarter-final win over London Irish. Quins were trailing 30-18 with 52 minutes gone but then created three tries from driving mauls and Care touched down at the back of two of them, having already scored an interception try in the first half.There were heroics on the losing side in the Challenge Cup from Sale Sharks centre Sam James, who scored a superb individual try in the last five minutes of the game against Montpellier. Trailing 25-14, the Sharks needed something a bit special and James’s chip and chase up the left fitted the bill, but Sale could not close the gap entirely and lost 25-19. Tim Visser gifted a try back to London Irish later in the half when he made a mess of tidying up a kick up the right and let the ball go lose and Fergus Mulchrone pounced to score.On a weekend when interception tries seemed to be all the rage, Toulon centre Maxime Mermoz saw his offload snaffled by Racing 92’s Juan Imhoff and the try the Argentine scored from there proved decisive in a game which ended in a 19-16 win for Racing and saw holders Toulon dumped out of the Champions Cup. That winning feeling: Jimmy Gopperth (front, centre) celebrates with his team-mates. (Photo: Inpho) Getting away with itHe ended up on the winning side, so Bradley Davies must be mighty relieved that the interception try he handed to Thomas Waldrom did not cost his Wasps team any dearer in their Champions Cup quarter-final against Exeter Chiefs.With 36 minutes gone and Exeter already 7-6 up, Wasps were in possession around their own ten-metre line when Davies had to turn 180 degrees to collect a wayward pass. As Brian O’Driscoll said on BT Sport after the game, “Don’t pass on a wayward pass.” Davies had obviously not heard that saying and with his back to play, he shifted the ball on and Waldrom appeared from over his shoulder to snaffle it and sprint for the line, sliding the last few metres to complete the score. With places in the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup semi-finals at stake, there was everything to play for this weekend. Who rose to the occasion and who wilted under pressure? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All’s well that end’s well: Tim Visser (centre) celebrates Harlequins’ win. (Photo: Getty Images)Too generous Brendan McKibbin made London Irish’s task of trying to win their Challenge Cup quarter-final at Harlequins all the harder by gifting a try to Danny Care after 20 minutes. From a lineout on half-way, he sent a long pass out, but Care had anticipated the plan and he sprinted round the back of the lineout, latched onto the ball and dashed in for a try which gave Harlequins the lead. Terrific Tigers Leicester were at their best as they trounced Stade Francais 41-13 at Welford Road in their Champions Cup quarter-final. Freddie Burns had a superb game for the Tigers, creating plenty of attacking chanced for his team-mates, scoring an interception try and thinking quickly to take an instant throw-in after a mistake by Djibril Camara close to his own line, which set up the easiest of tries for Manu Tuilagi.Man of the Match Peter Betham was also on top form, while Tigers wing Vereniki Goneva deserves a special mention, not only for scoring two tries but for unselfishly passing to blindside Michael Fitzgerald so he could score in the left-hand corner, when Goneva could have tried to power through to complete his hat-trick. With Leicester already 31-13 up, no one would have blamed Goneva if he had gone for glory and failed, but he did the best thing for his team and put Fitzgerald over.Winging in: Goneva scores his second try but denied himself a third. (Photo: Getty Images)Brad gets a grip Chris Ashton, Chris Wyles and Owen Farrell get the headlines for scoring Saracens’ points in their 29-20 Champions Cup win over Northampton Saints, but centre Brad Barritt also did a crucial piece of work to stop a score which might have given the Saints some early momentum.Saracens were 3-0 up in the 13th minute when Jamie Elliott looked set to score in the left-hand corner, but Barritt just managed to get hold of the Saint’s right arm as he reached down to ground the ball and he forced him to drop it. Referee Jeromes Garces disallowed the try, with help from the TV ref, and Northampton had missed out on a chance to make Saracens play catch-up.last_img read more

Despots, Dictators and Terrorists

first_imgHome News Feed Despots, Dictators and Terrorists SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Despots, Dictators and Terrorists If you evet needed proof that despots, dictators and terrorists are running our fuel supply and thus much of our economy, here is proof.Iran’s oil minister on Wednesday said the country will support action aimed at allowing oil prices to recover, but also said other producers understand the Tehran’s situation, the ministry’s official Shana news agency reported, according to news reports. The minister, Bijan Zanganeh, was earlier quoted as saying that Iran would resist any efforts to curb its own production because it would be “illogical” to do so just as sanctions that have limited crude exports are lifted. Zanganeh was meeting Wednesday with officials from fellow Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries members Iraq, Venezuela and Qatar to discuss a proposal tentatively agreed upon by Saudi Arabia and non-OPEC producer Russia to freeze production at January levels. Oil futures extended gains after the comments. March crude for delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange CLH6, +6.44% was up $1.53, or 5.3%, at $30.57 a barrel.What is truly sad is that the US has enough oil, renewable ethanol, and other fuels that we don’t need these clowns.  But the White House keeps us dependent on imported oil and Congress cannot craft an energy policy that is actualy good for America and our security.

Urgent appeal to international community after media owner murdered

first_img Follow the news on Somalia RSF_en News October 20, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Urgent appeal to international community after media owner murdered SomaliaAfrica Reporters Without Borders issued an urgent appeal to the international community for energetic measures towards the Somali government on behalf of the country’s journalists after the murder in Mogadishu of Bashir Nur Gedi, the head of the Shabelle press group. News Reporters Without Borders issued an urgent appeal today to the international community for energetic measures towards the Somali government on behalf of the country’s journalists after yesterday’s murder in Mogadishu of Bashir Nur Gedi, the head of the Shabelle press group. Gedi is the eighth journalist to be slain this year in Somalia and the third leading media owner to be killed by unidentified gunmen in the capital.“The security situation in Mogadishu seems to be completely out of control,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Abandoned by the Somali authorities and their international partners, journalists have become key targets who are easily accessible. One after another, the country’s leading media owners are being eliminated. By taking no action in this climate of total impunity, those who could be in a position to stop these murders will end up becoming accomplices.”The press freedom organisation also strongly condemned the arbitrary arrests of journalists that continue to be carried out by local and federal authorities throughout the country.The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), the Reporters Without Borders partner organisation in Somalia, said Gedi was killed outside his home in south Mogadishu by a group of young gunmen aged from about 14 to 20. They shot him several times in the head and chest, killing him instantly, and then fled. One of Gedi’s senior employees, Radio Shabelle acting manager Jafar “Kukay” Mohammed, was himself the target of a murder attempt less than a month ago. The station marked Gedi’s murder by suspending programmes and broadcasting verses from the Koran.Five journalists were arrested yesterday, three of them in the northeastern region of Puntland, the stronghold of the transitional government’s current president, Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed. They were Radio Garowe news editor Isse Abdullahi Mohammed, the station’s manager, Abdi Farah Jama Mire, and one of its producers, Mohammad Dahir Yusuf. The authorities, who closed down the station, later released Mire and Yusuf, but they are still holding Mohammed.Local journalists said the arrests were prompted by Radio Garowe’s recent broadcast of an interview with Ahmed’s former security chief, who has broken with the president. During the interview, he announced that he would soon publish revelations about abuses committed by the government.The other two arrests were in Mogadishu. Abdullahi Mohammed “Black” Hassan, the editor of the daily newspaper Ayaamaha, was arrested at his office and was held overnight, for a total of 12 hours, without ever being told why. Abdirashid Abdulle Abikar, a NUSOJ member and Agence France-Presse stringer, was briefly detained while taking photos of injured people in the capital’s Medina hospital. Some of his equipment was confiscated by the security forces. The NUSOJ said the reasons for these arrests were unknown.

After wasted month in prison, two social network users freed, charges dropped

first_img Follow the news on Mexico Organisation May 5, 2021 Find out more News News The Veracruz state prosecutor’s office yesterday dropped the terrorism and sabotage charges that it brought against social network users María de Jesús Bravo and Gilberto Martínez Vera for posting messages on Twitter and Facebook about the possibility of an organized crime attack on a Veracruz school. Arrested on 25 August, Bravo and Martínez were immediately released. They spent nearly a month in detention facing the possibility of a sentence of 3 to 30 years in prison, a fine equivalent to 750 days of their salaries and suspension of their political rights.Their release came one day after the Veracruz state congress approved an amendment to the state criminal code under which a “public order disturbance” will be punishable by one to four years in prison and a fine of up to 1,000 days of salary. Their lawyer, Claribel Guevara, nonetheless assured Reporters Without Borders there was no link between the amendment and their release.“This month in prison makes you think,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Veracruz state prosecutor’s office wasted a lot of time on this pointless case when it still has to solve three recent murders of journalists which have made Veracruz one of the most dangerous states for the media this year. Progress is slow in coming in these cases. Meanwhile, we have learned that around 15 journalists have fled into exile in the past two months.”______________________________1.09.2011 – Two social network users held on terrorism and sabotage chargesTwo social network users, Gilberto Martínez Vera, 35, and María de Jesús Bravo Pagola, 34, have been detained in Xalapa, in the eastern state of Veracruz, since 25 August on charges of terrorism and sabotage for posting messages on Twitter and Facebook about the possibility of an organized crime attack on a Veracruz school.They are facing the possibility of a sentence of 3 to 30 years in prison, a fine equivalent to 750 days of their salaries and suspension of their political rights for five years.“Despite the imprudent nature of some of the messages that Martínez and Bravo posted online, these charges are insane and we call for their immediate release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Under the Veracruz state criminal code, pre-trial detention is supposed to be an exceptional measure, one requiring evidence of the presumed guilt. “In the absence of any evidence of an intention to ‘disturb public order,’ ‘undermine state authority’ or ‘seriously disrupt the economic or cultural live of the state,’ these two Twitter users have no business being in prison. This case involves both censorship and abuse of authority. Even if the claims they posted online seems dubious or exaggerated, prosecuting social network users on terrorism charges is clearly excessive. “At the same time, the situation of freedom of information in the state of Veracruz is more alarming by the day. Aside from the many cases of threats and intimidation, three journalists have been murdered in the state since the start of the year: Yolanda Ordaz de la Cruz, Miguel Ángel López Velasco and Noel López Olguín.”Martínez and Bravo were arrested the same day that they posted their alerts about possible attacks on a Veracruz school, after police identified them through their online accounts. In a 27 August statement, the Veracruz state public prosecutor’s office accused them of intending to provoke “disturbances of the state’s social, economic and educative life” and “anxiety and fear reactions in parents.” The charges were confirmed yesterday. Fifteen other social network users are also being investigated.According to a report by the Grupo Formula news agency, Martínez and Bravo were subjected to psychological pressure during interrogation in an attempt to get them to plead guilty, and were denied access to a lawyer for more than 60 hours. They ended up pleading not guilty and said they had been mistreated by the authorities.This episode is one more illustration of the way the rule of law is collapsing as the federal offensive against drug trafficking continues to take its toll on Mexican society. The death toll since December 2006 is now over 45,000.

(Photo: Business Wire)The Huntington Hospital has installed nine CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems, retrofitted two existing portable systems with DRX Plus 3543C detectors and purchased a small-format DRX 2530C detector for use with neonatal patients.These high-quality imaging systems help enhance care for patients in its emergency department, operating suites, intensive care unit and neonatal intensive care unit. Staff members at the 625-bed hospital used other portable DR imaging systems prior to standardizing on the DRX-Revolution platform.“The DRX-Revolution systems deliver high-resolution images that can help our physicians quickly and accurately assess and treat acute care patients, as well as inpatients who require bedside exams,” said Ranilo Blasco, the hospital’s Manager of Radiology. “We standardized on these systems because of the platform’s innovative design and its ability to deliver excellent quality images as well as reliability and maneuverability.”Two DRX-Revolutions capture more than 2,300 exams a month in the hospital’s busy emergency department. Dedicated DRX-Revolutions serve the imaging needs of the hospital’s six operating suites, intensive care unit and neonatal intensive care unit, while the remaining units perform inpatient exams throughout the hospital. The hospital performs more than 150,000 imaging exams a year.“Technologists in the operating suites are able to position the unit so surgeons can view images either on the tube monitor or the console without moving away from the patient,” Blasco said.Carestream’s software provides a companion image that delivers optimized visualization of tubes and lines. “Physicians use these images to help position tubes and lines for seriously ill or injured patients and to detect pneumothorax. Because the companion image is created from the initial image, we do not need to capture multiple X-ray exams of these patients,” Blasco explains.“Converting from CR to DR has not only improved image quality, it also has lowered the dose required to obtain an excellent image. This is especially important for our ICU and NICU patients, so we have installed cesium detectors in these areas to deliver the lowest dose possible while maintaining extremely high-quality imaging,” he adds.In addition to being faster and lighter than previous detectors, Carestream’s new DRX Plus detectors offer features designed to help users achieve higher productivity, improved image quality and lower dose. In addition, these detectors can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes without failure, which achieves IPX Level 7 rating for liquid resistance and the IEC standard 60529. A reduced weight and thinner profile allow even easier handling.The new detectors offer: faster calibration time, boot time, preview time and full-resolution display time; on-detector calibration file storage that enables quicker setup of the detector on multiple systems; and increased battery life to deliver more images between battery changes. A battery hot swap allows a quick battery change without a reboot.Huntington Hospital is the only Level I trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley.  For more information visit Make a comment Business News Huntington Hospital Deploys 11 Portable Digital Radiography Systems to Deliver Rapid Image Access From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 | 12:22 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Darrel Done BusinessVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more
