Heineken sees lift as cost cuts pay off

first_img Show Comments ▼ Heineken sees lift as cost cuts pay off whatsapp Wednesday 16 February 2011 8:16 pm Share KCS-content center_img HEINEKEN, the world’s third-largest brewer, beat full-year earnings forecasts as cost cuts in Europe and savings from a large Mexican acquisition more than offset lower beer sales, lifting its shares.The group, whose main brands are Heineken and Amstel, which are Europe’s number one and three beers, said it expected drinkers in Latin America, Asia and Africa to buy more of its lagers and other drinks this year. The company said it would almost completely offset an expected low single-digit percentage rise in costs with higher prices.Investors had been keen to hear the Dutch brewer’s outlook on rocketing raw material costs, likely to be a hot issue in 2011. The futures price for malting barley has risen 50 per cent since the launch of the contract in May last year. Chief executive Jean-Francois van Boxmeer said: “Harvests influence a lot of the pricing. We are happy with that and we are of course now preparing the next year [2012] and there are still many uncertainties.”The group said it expected European and US consumers to be cautious this year due to unemployment and austerity measures. But it said the premium beer segment, including its Heineken brand in many markets, would outperform the beer market overall. Heineken did not disclose figures for the UK business but said the group’s western European arm reported a 3.6 per cent decline in volumes in 2010, while operating profits were up 14 per cent to €904m (£761.6m).Its shares rose 3.1 per cent to close at €38.04 yesterday.

Casablanca, the economic capital of Morocco, is a hyperactive and chaotic city of nearly 5 million inhabitants where cars are steadily replacing trees. When designing a home for my family, I had in mind the idea of a quiet place away from chaos, a fortress against the constant agitation of everyday life.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographySave this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyGradually, this idea was nourished by the image of the Riad, this typical Arab-Andalusian house modestly closed off from the public and open in its center on a planted patio. Source of light and fresh air, the patio is also a peaceful and luminous counterbalance of the narrow streets typical of the ancient Medinas. Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyLocated in the heart of Oasis, a residential neighborhood relatively close to the city center, the land plot that was to receive Villa LM did not allow for the architectural typology of a Riad; comprised notably of a dense, pedestrian urban fabric dating before the advent of the automobile. Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyIt was then necessary to adapt the intimate essence of the Riad to a modern typology inherited from the French protectorate, namely a town house with a garden around the periphery: the exact opposite of the riad.

first_imgThe People’s Verdict, a Bay Area International Peoples’ Tribunal Event, was held at the Bayanihan Community Center in San Francisco on July 18. It followed the closing of the International Peoples’ Tribunal on Crimes Against the Filipino People, held from July 16 to 18 in Washington, D.C.Tribunal attendees heard live, video and written testimony from the victims of human rights violations and their families. Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark was the lead prosecutor in the trial of accused criminals, headed by Philippine President Benigno S. Aquino and the U.S. government as represented by President Barack Obama.The gathering in San Francisco heard a summary of the charges and then watched a video of the Tribunal’s jurors presenting their conclusions.

Houthis holding 41 journalists hostage inside Yemeni TV station

first_img News December 7, 2017 – Updated on December 15, 2017 Houthis holding 41 journalists hostage inside Yemeni TV station YemenMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses ViolenceHostages News January 6, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of 41 journalists who have been held hostage by Houthi rebels inside the headquarters of the Yemen Al Youm TV channel in Sanaa for the past three days. RSF meanwhile holds the Houthis responsible for their safety. February 11, 2021 Find out more United Nations: press freedom situation “deeply worrying” in Yemen, according to RSF News Follow the news on Yemen Receive email alerts February 26, 2021 Find out more Fixer for foreign reporters held in Aden for past five months to go further RSF_en Help by sharing this information YemenMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses ViolenceHostages News Yemeni journalist killed, nine wounded in Aden airport explosions Houthi forces fired on the TV channel’s building with rocket grenades before taking complete control of it on 2 December. According to the sources consultes by RSF, three guards were injured during the attack.Yemen Al Youm TV is affiliated to the General People’s Congress, the party of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who was killed on 4 December.“We condemn the violent actions towards journalists by the Houthis, which constitute serious violations of the Geneva Conventions,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.“This hostage-taking is typical of the climate of hostility in Yemen towards journalists, who are often targeted in this conflict. We call on the Houthi rebels to immediately release the TV channel’s journalists and employees, as well as the 11 other media professionals and workers they are currently holding in their prisons.”The journalists held hostage inside Yemen Al Youm TV are being denied any contact with the outside world and RSF has no information about the conditions in which they are being held.RSF’s sources say the journalists were forced to surrender the TV channel’s access codes, thereby enabling the Houthis to broadcast their own content, including a speech by their leader, until broadcasting was stopped again.The websites of other media outlets that support former President Saleh’s rival rebel faction, such as Al Methaq, have been blocked. Al Methaq’s mobile service is also blocked.The Houthis are now holding the largest number of journalists hostage in Yemen. Yahya Abdelraqib al-Jubaihi, a journalist who was abducted from his home in September 2016, was sentenced to death by a Houthi-controlled court in April 2017 before being released this past September.At least 12 other journalists and media workers are currently held hostage in Yemen by armed groups, including the Houthis and Al-Qaeda.

Pasadena City College Ranked #1 in the State for Transfers to UC and CSU Systems

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Subscribe First Heatwave Expected Next Week Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Top of the News Community News Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday More Cool Stuff The results are in, and Pasadena City College is the number one school in California for transfers to California State University and University of California.According to data released by the UC President’s Office and the CSU system, PCC sent 2,321 students to these universities in Spring and Fall 2019.PCC was also the top college in the state for transfers to the CSUs, with 1,506 students moving from Pasadena to universities throughout the system. The top destinations for PCC transfers were CSU Los Angeles, CSU Northridge, and Cal Poly Pomona.Beyond the topline data, PCC is also ranked highly in degrees granted to minority students. According to data gathered by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education for the 2017-18 academic year, the college:• Ranks 1st in California and 5th in the Nation in minority students earning associate degrees– PCC showed the strongest year-to-year growth in this metric, at 31 percent• Places 1st in California and in 1st in the Nation in the number of degrees awarded to Asian American students• Holds the top spot in California in the number of degrees awarded to Latinx studentsThese figures affirm what our community already knows: no one can compare to PCC for academic achievement,” said Erika Endrijonas, Ph.D., superintendent/president of PCC. “We have been working tirelessly in recent years to streamline our curriculum, reduce barriers, and support our students in their educational goals. The numbers we see today prove that our approach is working.”The college currently offers 32 Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADTs), the “degree with a guarantee” that the CSUs and community colleges launched in 2012 to simplify transfers between the two systems. In the eight years of its existence the ADT has gone on to be accepted at private institutions, including historically Black colleges and universities, and it forms a framework for UC transfers as well. PCC was honored in December as the state’s top granter of ADTs in the 2017-18 academic year.PCC also has strong performance against its peer institutions in transfers to the UC system, ranking in the top five in the state. The college’s Honors Program has partnerships that give qualified participants priority admission to UCLA and UC Riverside, and the Transfer Admission Guarantee program provides guaranteed admission to a UC Campus.Beyond the state systems, PCC is growing its partnerships with private colleges and universities as well. Pasadena students go on to attend USC, Azusa Pacific University, and other prestigious institutions, and the college has had four students transfer to Yale University in the last five years.The college has also garnered attention for the performance of its students following their move to a four-year institution. As a national Aspen Prize Top Ten Community College in 2019, PCC stood out with more than half of its transfer students completing their bachelor’s degrees, well above the national average.“It’s thrilling to see that PCC is having such an impact on its students,” said James Osterling, president of the board of trustees of the Pasadena Area Community College District. “We are clearly bringing value to our community, and we’re so fortunate to help so many folks open the gateway to universities right here in Pasadena.”Since 1924, Pasadena City College (www.pasadena.edu) has provided the San Gabriel Valley with a high-quality, innovative learning environment that inspires student success. Our academic programs encompass a variety of degrees, transfer programs, certificates of achievement, and occupational skills certificates that challenge students and support progress toward their goals. Widely recognized as a transfer leader, PCC is one of California¹s top schools for transfers to local universities, including the CSU and UC system, USC, Art Center College of Design, Caltech, and more. 11 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it center_img Community News Business News Education Pasadena City College Ranked #1 in the State for Transfers to UC and CSU Systems STAFF REPORT Published on Thursday, January 30, 2020 | 3:10 pm Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Basement geology and Palaeozoic–Mesozoic mafic dykes from the Cape Meredith Complex, Falkland Islands: a record of repeated intracontinental extension

first_imgMafic dykes (Groups A–D) intruded into Mesoproterozoic basement amphibolites, gneisses, and granitoids of the Cape Meredith Complex on the southern tip of West Falkland, provide an important record of at least three periods of lithospheric extension during Palaeozoic and Jurassic times. Group A dykes are calc-alkaline lamprophyres that were generated by partial melting of an enriched subcontinental lithospheric mantle in Cambro-Ordovician times. Group B dykes are Ordovician dolerites derived from an asthenospheric mantle source, perhaps during the same extensional episode as Group A dykes. Group C dykes were also derived from an asthenospheric source and are possibly of Silurian age. The youngest, Group D, dykes are part of the widespread Jurassic Gondwana province. This group contains an oceanic island basalt-like sample and an enriched sample similar to both Group A lamprophyres and to the Jurassic Ferrar province in Antarctica. These correlations have interesting implications for the composition and evolution of mantle sources through time; the co-existence of Cambrian lamprophyres and Jurassic Ferrar-type magmas in the Cape Meredith Complex demonstrate for the first time that the enriched lithospheric mantle source postulated for the Ferrar magmas existed as far back as Cambrian times.last_img read more
