A fashion retailer? A food seller? That’s the identity question that Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) has been struggling with for years. Thursday’s results hopefully brought the answer a little closer. And on the whole, the markets liked it, as the M&S share price ended the day up 8.5%, after breaking 10% in earlier trading. It’s still down 37% over the past two years, mind.We heard of falling revenue, a statutory pre-tax loss of £209m, and more stores set to close. Still, on the upside, at least for those wanting M&S to focus on its food offerings and its Ocado tie-up, more stores are set to close. Clothing and home revenues dipped by 31.5% overall, even though online sales gained 53.9%.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…The optimism is all about food and Ocado. Like-for-like food revenue was up 1.3%. And after excluding hospitality and franchise operations, M&S recorded a like-for-like gain of 6.9%. Possibly key to the market optimism, M&S products made up more than 25% of Ocado’s average basket. But is it wise for investors to tie the M&S share price to the Ocado share price? I’ll come back to that in a moment.More store closuresMarks & Spencer has been downsizing its chain of stores and cutting jobs for years. And the company now intends to close 30 more stores over the next 10 years. But M&S also plans some openings and expansions over the next couple of years. So it’s going to be gradual, and not all one-way losses. I suspect it’s too early to guess how those plans will pan out in the coming years anyway, just coming out of the pandemic lockdown.Until we get back to high street business as usual, I won’t have a clue about the true long-term prospects for M&S stores. Or be able to guess at where the M&S share price might go. Having some idea of a rational share price valuation is important to me. That’s because I’ve been watching the Marks & Spencer transformation for years, and I keep thinking it might finally be time for me to buy.M&S share price valuationSo what about Ocado? Here’s my concern. The Ocado share price has fallen over the past few months. But the company still has a market cap of around £14.5bn. That’s more than six times Ocado’s 2020 revenue. And it’s not making a profit. Now, Ocado is very hard to value, as investors see it as a technology company rather than just an online retailer, with its online retailing systems being the big attraction. I think that’s fair. But I worry what effect we might see on the M&S share price should Ocado suffer any future tech stock stumbles.While Ocado clearly appeals to growth investors, M&S has traditionally appealed to boring old income and value investors like me. And while the two companies might be good fits in their retail venture, I just get twitchy about seeing the increasing dependency of one on the other. From an investing perspective, that is.So while I can’t see a clear way to value either the M&S share price or the Ocado share price, it’s still not time for me to buy.

It’s the Middlesex school’s very first Team of the Month award.Hampton warmed up with a 38-21 trial match against Dulwich College and impressed all in claiming the Esher RFC President’s Cup, beating Abingdon 5-0 in the final through a try by centre Alex Tavener.Led by flanker Laurence Brown, Hampton took the pool scalps of Whitgift (5-0), John Fisher (5-0) and Wellington College (10-0). Fly-half Tom MccGwire scored tries in all three group games, the other scorer full-back Joe Battle. MccGwire made some exciting breaks and was named Player of the Tournament, but there were huge contributions by centres Tavener and Kane Alboni, who made some big tackles in midfield and provided real go-forward.No 8 Alex Ayoade made some great charges off the back of the scrum, prop Alex Lundberg (England U16 in 2011) shone in the loose and hooker Sam Evans was outstanding in his set-piece work.Wins over Reigate GS (two tries by Alboni) and RGS Guildford (two tries by lock Ben Lawrence) kept the momentum going before wins at London Oratory and, in the Daily Mail Cup, Richard Challoner.Eight players got tries against Oratory, emphasising the all-round contribution of a XV oozing with confidence. Prop Jobie Burke went over three times in the cup game.This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Ice Cube, Anthony Anderson talk new film, community, Oscars

first_imgFacebook Linkedin Fort Worth’s first community fridge program helps serve vulnerable neighborhoods Ice Cube said the idea for the third film was inspired by an article he read.“It was about a guy who had a barbershop and was dealing with violence in the community,” Ice Cube said. “He offered free cuts for people who would stop the violence. A cease-fire type of thing. I just thought it was a good idea wrapped around things that are really going on around Chicago.”Ice Cube said the film will appeal to both new audience members and fans of the first two.“I think it’s definitely going to bring in an audience that’s curious about what the Barbershop is about,” Ice Cube said. “But I think we’ve got a movie that satisfies our core audience. Hopefully, we appeal to a lot of demographics.”Audio Playerhttp://www.tcu360.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/The-World-Needs-Another-Barbershop.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The film industry, specifically Hollywood and the Oscars, has been under scrutiny for a lack of on-screen diversity. Many films feature predominantly white, male actors.According to Deadline, the Oscars had its lowest ratings in eight years. The massive #OscarsSoWhite Twitter campaign aimed to show the white-washing of Hollywood.“The Oscars is a different kind of club,” Ice Cube said. “It’s not really representing Hollywood at its starting point. It’s representing Hollywood at its endpoint.”Co-star Anthony Anderson said he agreed with Ice Cube’s point.“It begins with the gatekeepers,” Anderson said. “Who are controlling the purse strings, who are in control of what’s being made, how it’s being made, and who it’s being made with. The Oscars is just a by-product of that.”Anderson said the Oscars don’t prove anything and that everyone has a story to tell and should be able to tell it.“Our stories are just as entertaining and valuable as any other stories being told,” Anderson said. “These are stories that people want to hear. People want to be entertained by them.”“Barbershop: The Next Cut” is out in theaters April 15.

Two journalists assaulted by police officers

first_img October 21, 2020 Find out more BurundiAfrica BurundiAfrica RSF_en News In a letter to Defence Minister Cyrille Ndayirukiye, Reporter Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières-RSF) protested journalist Aloys Niyoyita’s arrest by police officers and the assault on reporter Corneille Nibaruta. “The officers responsible for these actions must be punished firmly and swiftly,” stated Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary-general. “To the best of our knowledge, these journalists were manhandled simply for exercising their professional activities,” he added. RSF asked the minister to see to it that those responsible for these actions are identified and punished, and to do everything possible to ensure that Burundian journalists are able to work in a safe environment.According to information collected by RSF, on 6 March 2002, Niyoyita, a Studio Ijambo news agency journalist and occasional contributor to the Associated Press agency, was arrested by police officers in Bujumbura. He was covering a demonstration by activists from the “P.A Amasekanya” group, which opposes the Arusha peace accords. The journalist was struck and arrested after refusing to hand over his reporting materials. He was detained for four hours at the First Battalion of Intervention station in Bujumbura, along with eight activists. Bonesha FM journalist Nibaruta was roughed up and humiliated by a police officer while covering the same demonstration, but was not arrested. Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention RSF recalled that Burundian journalists were often the targets of army repression in 2001. Several journalists were briefly detained or assaulted while trying to cover opposition activities, and had their cameras and video cameras confiscated.
