Capita says cuts have hit harder than expected

first_imgThursday 18 November 2010 4:06 am whatsapp Outsourcing firm Capita said sales growth would be hit harder by government spending cuts than it previously expected – but said the measures would eventually create a climate that would benefit the business.“We indicated that pressures on public spending might potentially affect growth in the short term … This is now occurring and will subdue revenue growth in the second half of the year more than previously anticipated,” Capita said.Capita, which processes 25 million life, savings and pensions policies and handles complaints for the BBC, said revenue growth would be modest because many existing contracts would not be renewed or offset with new deals, and because fewer contracts had been signed in the second half.Last month Capita, which chalks up half its revenues from government contracts, signed a deal to help Downing Street deliver savings, although it said the move would not materially impact its finances.Many analysts have tipped Capita as one of the companies poised to benefit in the long-term from public spending cuts and, despite its sales warning, the firm remained bullish about its ability to benefit from demand for savings.“The opportunities to work with central and local government to deliver greater cost efficiencies across public services through new outsourcing initiatives are strong,” Capita said.

Airline body IATA increases its profit forecast as market lifts

first_img whatsapp AIRLINES will post higher profits than expected this year and next, according to the industry association IATA.However, margins remain low and the sector’s recovery is patchy, with European airlines underperforming those in other regions, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in its latest financial forecast yesterday.IATA said the increase is due to an upturn in the market, “exceptionally strong third-quarter performance” and better capacity usage. It therefore raised its profit forecast for this year from $8.9bn (£5.6bn) to $15.1bn and predicted profit next year of $9.1bn, up from an earlier forecast of $5.3bn.The industry body represents 230 airlines covering 93 per cent of scheduled international traffic. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGem Airline body IATA increases its profit forecast as market lifts KCS-content Sharecenter_img whatsapp Tuesday 14 December 2010 9:16 pm Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Worldwide appeal by journalists and press freedom defenders against suicide bombings

first_img“They cannot claim that their suicide bombings are martyrdom operations and that they become the heroes of the Muslim umma (Islamic community),” Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri said. “No, they become the heroes of hellfire and they are leading towards hellfire. There is no place for any martyrdom and their act is never, ever to be considered jihad (holy struggle).” In April, two fellow-journalists working for Samaa TV were killed in the space of two days in suicide bombings in Pakistan. They were both covering stories at the time and paid with their lives for doing their duty to report the news. These bombings have made Pakistan one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the press. News PakistanAsia – Pacific News We, the undersigned journalists of Pakistan and defenders of press freedom around the world, condemn with the utmost firmness all recourse to suicide bombings in the middle of crowds of civilians that result in the deaths of innocent people including media workers. We appeal with the utmost urgency to the leaders of the Taliban in Pakistan, to the jihadist movements and to Al-Qaeda in Pakistan to put a stop to all further suicide bombings in public gatherings.

Soldiers beat journalists in Abia State press centre

first_imgNews Receive email alerts News Organisation In the Umuahia incident, a score of soldiers stormed into the Nigerian Union of Journalists press centre on 12 September, beat up some of the journalists there, and smashed or seized smartphones, computers and other equipment containing newly-shot photos and video.The targeted journalists had just covered Operation Python Dance, a show of strength by the army on the streets of Umuahia with the aim of ending clashes between soldiers and members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, a separatist group that was angered by an army raid on its leader’s home last weekend.John Emejor, the head of the local branch of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, said the attack on the NUJ press centre was typical of increasingly dictatorial tendencies in Nigeria. He also pointed out the absurdity of destroying reporting material that would have helped to relay the message the army want to convey, namely a demonstration of its ability to use force if needed.Several hours after the incident, local army commanders went to the press centre to apologize and to give assurances that the soldiers responsible would be identified and punished.“It is good to see the military accepting responsibility but this event nonetheless shows that perceptions of what journalists do are a real problem in Nigeria,” said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“Journalists are regularly prevented from working and are subjected to violence by security or intelligence personnel. Instead of reacting after the event, the Nigerian government should make an effort to train the security forces about the role of journalists in society and thereby foster better relations between two sectors that are essential in a democracy.”At least three other journalists have been attacked since the start of the month. Channels Television reporter Segun Salami was badly beaten by security agents in the central state of Kogi on 1 September. And members of the Directorate of State Services (DSS) beat Timothy Agbor of The Point Newspapers and Toba Adedeji of Osun Defender while they were covering a demonstration by civil servants in the southwestern city of Osogbo on 11 September.RSF has tallied 53 cases of abuses against journalists since the start of the year, including 20 arrests and 23 cases of threats or physical violence. Nigeria is ranked 122nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling six places in a year.

With mask mandate set to end, three more youth vaccination clinics announced

first_img Tagged: coronavisu, COVID-19, Cuomo, kruppa, mask mandate, tompkins county health department, vaccination TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y.—New York State’s mask mandate is ending May 19, meaning fully vaccinated people no longer have to socially distance or wear a mask at most indoor and outdoor occasions. With anyone over 12 now eligible to receive the vaccine, the Tompkins County Health Department is scheduling three vaccination clinics to maintain its push for higher vaccination rates even as the state reopens. Those under 18 who want the vaccine must have a parent or guardian accompany them. The three clinics are scheduled at the following times, and have varying eligibilities:Shops at Ithaca Mall – Old Sears (40 Catherwood Rd.)Saturday, May 22 from 9:00am – 4:00pm12 years and olderAppointments available: vaccineCall 211 (1-877-211-8667) during business hours, 8:30AM-5:00PM for assistance registering and for transportation options.Dryden School DistrictWednesday, May 19 from 3:30pm – 7:30pm12 years and olderRegistration link will be shared by the school districtCall 211 (1-877-211-8667) during business hours, 8:30AM-5:00PM for assistance registering and for transportation options.Newfield School DistrictThursday, May 20 from 3:30pm – 7:30pm12 years and olderRegistration link will be shared by the school districtCall 211 (1-877-211-8667) during business hours, 8:30AM-5:00PM for assistance registering and for transportation options.While private businesses are still allowed to require masks for entrance, most mask mandates will now only apply to those who are unvaccinated. It also seems increasingly likely that COVID-19 vaccinations are relatively effective at greatly reducing transmission of the virus as well, in addition to making the body better able to avoid severe symptoms. “Consistent with the CDC guidance, Pre-K to 12 schools, public transit, homeless shelters, correctional facilities, nursing homes, and healthcare settings will continue to follow State’s existing COVID-19 health guidelines including distancing and mask wearing until more New Yorkers are fully vaccinated,” said the health department. “Private businesses may still require masks for everyone in their establishments, consistent with the CDC guidance. Unvaccinated people should still wear masks in all settings while around others.”“Over the next few weeks, we are prioritizing the vaccination of young people in our community, ages 12 years and up, who were not previously eligible to receive the vaccine,” said Tompkins County Public Health Director Frank Kruppa. “This expansion will provide another layer of protection for our community and will be critical to the further re-opening of schools. I want to thank Cayuga Health and the school districts for partnering on this effort.”Info from the health department:Additional information about the Pfizer vaccine can be found on the Health Department website, including the FDA Fact Sheet.Individuals without computer and/or internet access may also call 2-1-1 (877-211-8667) during regular business hours 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and someone can register them over the phone.NYS State-run Vaccination Sites are currently offering Pfizer vaccine to this age group. Appointments can be scheduled on the NYS Department of Health website.Hesitant, unsure, or have questions about the vaccines?

Each event is designed to offer a safe space and informative experience for attendees seeking more information on COVID-19 vaccines.
