Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The company appears to be in a relatively stable position at the moment with regards to cash, and has even paid off the loan previously given to it by the government to help with Covid-19 business disruption.A recent partnership with Just Eat means that customers can have their baked goods delivered, and in turn this has helped make up for some of the lost business due a lack of footfall in the company’s stores.Sales have been steadily improving since the initial lockdown of March 2020, and the fourth quarter trading update mentions that like-for-like sales in company-managed stores in the fourth quarter to early January this year were an average of 81.1% of equivalent 2019 levels.However I note in the same report that the CEO Roger Whiteside also talks about how he thinks that it would be at least 2022 before company profits return to pre-Covid levels.Even though the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have been painful, Greggs has still been opening new stores and has plans to continue to do so during 2021.I like the fact that the company seems adaptable and proactive, such as offering the delivery service and the introduction of new menu items. I remember seeing the news when customers were queuing around the block for the new vegan steak bake!Food for thoughtContinuing to increase the number of outlets does show commitment to future growth. However, it is happening at a time of great uncertainty in both the high street and the wider economy in general.Also, given that most of Greggs’ bakery stores seem to be located on the high street or in retail parks, its target customers would appear to be those who are out shopping or who are at work.I do wonder if the number of customers could start to decline in the long run if the work from home model were to continue, and if shoppers were to move to more online purchases, rather than hitting the high street.Once the lockdown is lifted and shops and restaurants reopen, it is difficult to know if the number of takeaway delivery orders will continue at the current rate. This is something for me to consider given this has helped to maintain sales for the business so far.Even though the share price has been climbing for this growth stock, I think at the moment there is just too much uncertainty for me to invest and therefore I will be happy to sit this one out and watch what happens from the sidelines with my savoury treat in hand.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Florida Catholic Newspaper holds its annual Long-Sleeve Relief campaignFrom the Florida Catholic NewspaperFarmworkers toil in the fields and serve a critical function for all Americans, yet they are hidden in the shadows of American society. That is why for the past 12 years the Florida Catholic Newspaper holds its annual Long-Sleeve Relief campaign — to create awareness about the needs of farmworkers and the important role they play in all of our lives.The goal of the campaign is to provide clean long-sleeved shirts to protect farmworkers from exposure to the sun’s burning rays and pesticides they might encounter in the fields. Chemicals that saturate the shirts make them unusable after several long days of wear and tear, so having new shirts available fills a critical need. Readers have responded with donations of more than 60 tons of shirts, which have been used to the “point of no return” and thrown away only because there is another one to take its place.But another function of the drive is to create awareness and allow Florida residents to open their eyes to poverty in their midst. Parish groups and/or school groups are encouraged to visit drop-off sites that directly aid farmworkers to ask questions and see things firsthand.Monetary donations are also accepted to help with the Florida Farmworker Association’s outreach to the farmworker community. Last year, we collected over $8,000 in cash donations, which we divided among the three Farmworker Associations in the dioceses we cover. This year we would like to increase that amount to $10,000.The popular drive officially begins Ash Wednesday, Feb. 14, and runs through Holy Thursday, March 29. The focus of the drive is to donate clean, used or new men’s and women’s cotton long-sleeve shirts that can be used in the fields. In addition or instead of a shirt drive, consider raising funds for a yard sale or bake sale, anything that is easy or convenient for you.For info on collection site locations:• Visit www.thefloridacatholic.org• Call Tammy at 407-373-0079• Email [email protected] Please enter your name herelast_img read more

Courtney Lawes’ devastating hit on hapless debutant in pre-season game vs Bedford Blues

first_imgMonday Aug 19, 2013 Courtney Lawes’ devastating hit on hapless debutant in pre-season game vs Bedford Blues Northampton Saints beat Bedford Blues 45-21 in a pre-season friendly on Friday night, but one of the moments of the match was when replacement lock Courtney Lawes made a massive, trademark hit on debutant Mike Le Bourgeois. ADVERTISEMENTIt was a baptism of fire for the summer signing from Jersey, as athletic England lock Lawes lined him up and absolutely smashed him. One could be mistaken for thinking Lawes was offside, but if you watch carefully he came from way back and covered the turf in no time at all.Le Bourgeois endeared himself to the crowd by playing on, and managing to hide the relief at having survived the tackle from a player who has become known as a bit of a hitman.WATCH: Courtney Lawes huge hit on Julien Tomas“I’m just happy to have got up from it! It was just one of those where I didn’t see him coming, but thankfully I was able to take it,” Le Bourgeois told Bedfordshire News Sport.It’s a quick clip from Saints Rugby TV and the quality isn’t great as the match wasn’t broadcasted on TV, but it’s a great example of incredible line speed by the big guy, and a perfectly executed tackle.

Podeba murder suspect turns himself in

According to police superintendent Ricardo Padilla, who is in charge of the murder investigation, he is one of the two gunmen who shot Podeba on 17 May 2003. When turning himself in to Bansud mayor Ferdinand Soller, Alcantara said a policeman tried to kill him five days earlier and he therefore needed protection.________________________________________________________27.05.2003Two suspects arrested in the killing of journalist Apolinario PodebaTwo arrested suspects reportedly linked to mayor’s sonPolice in Lucena (southeast of Manila) have arrested two suspects in the 17May killing of radio journalist Apolinario “Polly” Podeba and said theyadmitted working as bodyguards for Romano Talaga, son of Ramon Talaga, thetown’s mayor who has been mentioned in connnection with the case. Eulogio”Eloy” Patulay and his brother Eric (who denied killing Podeba) werearrested on 22 May after being named as suspects by Quezon police chiefRicardo Padilla. Both men have been accused of other killings in the pastbut never convicted.————————————-05.19.2003 Second journalist killed in less than two monthsReporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) today voiced concern about the murder on 17 May of radio commentator Apolinario “Polly” Podeba, the second journalist killed in less than two months, and urged the government to do more to protect journalists. Podeba’s murder is thought to have been the result of his accusations linking municipal authorities to the spread of drugs and gambling in the town of Lucena.”The impunity enjoyed by those who murder journalists, especially in the case of Edgar Damalerio, encourages hit men and those who hire them to murder more journalists,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “The government is partly to blame for this wave violence, which makes the Philippines one of the most dangerous countries for the press,” he said.The organisation called on President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to do everything possible to ensure that those responsible for Podeba’s death are identified and punished. It also called on the government to consider taking special measures to protect threatened journalists, as the authorities in Colombia have done.Podeba was gunned down on the way to the studios of radio dwTI-AM near Lucena, southeast of Manila, on the morning of 17 May 2003 by two men on a motorcycle, who fired seven shots at close range, hitting him in the face, head, neck, back and hands. One of the two killers even got off the motorcycle to fire more shots at him as he lay on the ground. He was taken to Quezon hospital where a forensic doctor declared him dead on arrival.A former communist guerrilla, Podeba was known for criticising both national and municipal authorities. For the past two years, he and two colleagues had presented a programme called “Nosi ba Lasi” (Who are they?) in which they blamed the mayor of Lucena, Ramon Talaga, for the spread of drugs and gambling in the town. The mayor reacted by closing down the radio station in 2002, forcing it to move outside the city limits.Joselito “Tito” Ojeda, the chairman of ConAmor Broadcasting, which owns dwTI-AM, said the mayor could be implicated in the murder. The mayor, for his part, blamed the murder on his political rivals who, he said, were trying to harm him by portraying him as the leading suspect. No group has claimed responsibility for the killing.Lucena police chief Danilo Siongco has been put in charge of the investigation. Two witnesses are reportedly being held in police custody. Podeba’s widow Rowena said her husband had received telephone threats in the past few weeks. She also said she thought a hit man was hired to kill him.The other journalist killed in the past seven weeks was John Villanueva, killed in April in Legapzi, in the centre of the country. Radio commentator Efren Rafanan was wounded on 31 March in Vigan in the north of the Philippines.

Southern newspaper editor seriously wounded in shooting

first_img RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News Follow the news on Brazil to go further Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at a shooting attack that left newspaper editor Maurício Melato Barth seriously injured on 23 March in the southern city of Itapema (Santa Catarina state) and suggested local authorities could have been involved.”We firmly condemn the violence and cowardliness of this attack, which aimed to silence a journalist,” the press freedom organization said.”It is highly likely this ‘contract’ was carried out with the support, if not at the behest, of local officials who had been criticized in the victim’s articles, and we therefore call for a federal investigation to find out who was involved,” Reporters Without Borders added.The owner and editor of the local newspaper Infobairros, Melato found two masked men waiting for him when he returned home on the evening of 23 March. They fired three shots at him at close range, hitting him twice and shattering both of his thighbones.Melato has often run stories on local corruption. “Itapema’s mayor is suspected of corruption,” Ricardo Pedreira of the National Association of Journalists (ANJ) told Reporters Without Borders, adding, “it is quite probable that this was an attempted contract killing.”The same view was taken by Itapema-based freelance journalist André Gobbo. “Maurício had accused local politicians in his newspaper of administrative irregularities,” he told Reporters Without Borders.The shooting has caused a stir. “The Santa Catarina state government has organized and sent a team of investigators acting independently of our local police,” Gobbo said.Melato was initially hospitalized in Blumenau, where he spent a week. Then he was transferred to Curitiba, in neighbouring Paraná state.
