Biba’s most recent relaunch, courtesy of the Liechtenstein-based investment fund Hachel International Foundation, ended up with Grant Thornton being appointed as administrators just two years ago.The brand was acquired late last year by House of Fraser, which said it would look to make Biba “more accessible” to today’s generation of shoppers. The group is set to position the label alongside its own-brand names such as Linea, Therapy and Untold.The launch this week, which will see Biba rolled out to 30 of House of Fraser’s department stores for the autumn, comes as the group prepares to announce a booming set of figures for the first half of the year. Like-for-like sales for the six months to the end of July rose by 8.4 per cent.TIME LINE | HISTORY OF AN ICONIC BRAND● 1964Biba, the brainchild of Polish fashion designer Barbara Hulanicki, launches its very first store in London’s Kensington.

The new slogan – “that calls for a Carlsberg” – replaces one of advertising’s most famous taglines: “Probably the best beer in the world,” originally voiced by actor Orson Welles. Chief executive Jorgen Buhl Rasmussen said that while Carlsberg’s green logo is known around the world, its sales do not measure up to its brand recognition. Carlsberg’s operating profit rose from 9.39bn Danish kroner (£1.1bn) in 2009 to 10.25bn Danish kroner in 2010. Carlsberg said it hopes the new branding will help it reach its goal to become the fastest-growing global beer company.

Vaccine day: Here are my best shares to buy now to make money in 2021 The term ‘V day’ has historically been used to commemorate a victory in important battles or wars. Today, it took on another meaning as the first Covid-19 vaccine was administered. With vaccination beginning and hope of normality returning, here are some of my best shares to buy now.#1 Travel stocksAirlines are not the best shares to buy now in my opinion. But I am looking at alternatives such as National Express, Stagecoach, and Go Ahead Group. Each of these travel stocks are national bus operators with extensive operations throughout the UK and in international markets too. The Covid-19 pandemic put paid to public transport so share prices and performance declined badly. That being said, there are opportunities to pick up cheap shares in these firms in my opinion. Social distancing and face masks means public transport is beginning to return to normal levels. With vaccination upon us, share prices are rallying and I expect performance for these stocks to do the same.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…#2 The best shares to buy now are defensiveDefensive stocks are those which will perform consistently despite the market downturn. The top defensive stocks are those that provide essential products and services. With that in mind, I really like the look of consumer goods giants Unilever and Reckitt Benckiser Group.Loyalty to the popular brand names that each of these firms possess means that they consistently perform well. Worldwide reach and brand loyalty and recognition has successfully equated to high profits and plenty of cash surplus. This surplus is usually good news for investors. Unilever has not cut its dividend for 20 years. It is also currently trading at a lower price point than prior to the market crash.Reckitt is also enjoying stellar performance of late. Its hygiene division is experiencing huge demand and sales across the board are up. Insiders are currently buying shares which for me is a tell tale sign things are going well and why I rate it as one of the best shares to buy now.3# Tech stocksLast but not least technology stocks have always been considered a safe bet in my opinion. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for technology has sped up as many look to streamline and automate manual processes. That’s why I really like Sage Group and Avast as two of the best shares to buy now. Sage is a world leader in accountancy software. With sales of nearly £2bn each year, it is a successful, established company. I would class it as a reliable tech stock with further growth potential. Earlier this year it reported almost 90% of its revenue was recurring. It has a solid balance sheet, very little debt, and supports strong cash generation with high profit margins.Avast is known for its anti-virus software with a reported 400m users worldwide. Cyber security has become a big business in recent times as technology has evolved. Avast’s profits continue to rise and it possesses a business model which works for it well. Covid-19 has not affected sales as the first half of 2020 saw underlying profits rise by nearly 15%. High profit margins and growth potential are what make me add Avast to my best shares to buy now list. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

High rise: Courtney Lawes wins a lineoutStar man – Courtney LawesHe went off midway through the second half, but that could well be down to the shift put in by the lock in those 56 minutes. He dominated the lineout, continually carried hard at the Pumas defence and put in several of his trademark crunching hits. He’s a hard man who is sure to come to the fore against New Zealand in seven days’ time.StatsEngland made 14 offloads to seven by Argentina, but conceded 11 turnovers to nine.Chris Ashton was England’s top metre-maker with 90 while Mike Brown was second wit 81 and Billy Vunipola third with 48. Argentina full-back Gonzalo Amorosino topped the charts, though, with 102.Tom Wood (12) and Chris Robshaw (14) were the only players on either side to hit double figures for their tackle count.Scorers Try time: Chris Ashton crosses for England’s third try against Argentina at TwickenhamBy Sarah Mockford at TwickenhamIn a nutshellAfter stumbling out of the blocks last week against Australia, England were in cruise control for the first half, scoring three tries to lead the Pumas 24-6 – but then they nodded off yet again.The opening 40 minutes were full of attacking intent, high tempo and an awareness of the space on the pitch, Owen Farrell guiding his team-mates around the turf like a circus ringmaster. Joe Launchbury, Billy Twelvetrees and Chris Ashton all scored tries – although there was doubt as to whether the winger grounded the ball before going into touch – and England were in full control.Come the second half, though, the intensity dipped and so did the accuracy, flippant passes not going to hand and turnovers commonplace. Argentina certainly stepped up a gear at the breakdown and England couldn’t get the quick ball they had enjoyed in the first 40, but there was also a lack of fluency to their own game.The All Blacks are in town next week and unless England can maintain their composure and intensity for the full 80 minutes, the visitors could run riot.Key momentHe’d received a fair amount of criticism this week, but Billy Twelvetrees showed some good touches early on and then crossed for England’s second try in the 22nd minute. The ball had come out from a five-metre scrum and England spotted the acres of space on the other side of the pitch, Twelvetrees receiving the ball and running hard for the line, barrelling over an Argentine defender before touching down. That made the score 17-6 and England’s dominance had been reflected on the scoreboard. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England – Tries: Launchbury, Twelvetrees, Ashton, Morgan. Cons: Farrell 3, Flood. Pen: Farrell.Argentina – Pens: Sanchez 3, Bosch.
Featured Jobs & Calls John C. Cain, Jr. helps a man choose reading glasses during a medical clinic at Santo Tomas Episcopal Church in Guatier, Dominican Republic. Cain is part of a medical team from upstate New York that is running a medical clinic March 3-7 at the church. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic] Two hours. That’s how long it took a medical mission team from upstate New York to set up its clinic at Santo Tomas, an Episcopal Church in Gautier.The mission, now in its 16th year, runs like clockwork in the former sugarcane community located not far from the popular tourist beach in Boca Chica.Patients arrive with problems including high blood pressure, respiratory trouble, gastrointestinal difficulties, skin rashes, diabetes. A visit can take between three and four hours, depending on the number of patients awaiting treatment; the team typically sees between 1,000 and 1,500 patients during the five-day clinic.Upon entering the clinic, a patient visits a registration table, where forms are issued. Intake follows, where weight and blood pressure are measured. Then Rita Bush, a dietician and diabetes educator from Malta, New York, pricks the fingers of those wishing to have their blood sugar tested. Many patients have high blood pressure and diabetes, and many go without medication.If a person has fasted, normal blood sugar, or glucose, levels range between 70 and 100 milligrams per deciliter. If a person has eaten, you might see 130 milligrams. Anything over 160 indicates diabetes. On the morning on March 3, two patients had blood sugar levels of 500 milligrams, one of them an insulin-dependent child, said Bush.Rita Bush, a dietician and diabetes counselor, tests a patient’s blood sugar during the first day of the medical clinic at Santo Tomas in Gautier. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceAfter these preliminary checks, the patient waits to see a doctor or physician assistant before visiting the pharmacy. The final stop is a prayer station to receive, not only prayers, but also a care package with soap, toothpaste and other practical personal-hygiene items.“For some of these people, it’s the only time [during the year] they see a doctor,” said Kevin Bolan, a physician assistant from Newcomb, New York. As the week progresses, he added, people arrive at the clinic from further and further away.The upstate New York team’s journey began around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 28 when the members boarded a bus bound for John F. Kennedy International Airport at St. Eustace Episcopal Church in Lake Placid. Besides their personal luggage, they brought 40 large plastic bins filled with supplies and medication.Just as the New York group arrived in the Dominican Republic, another medical mission team from North Carolina was traveling back to Santo Domingo from Jimaní, a border town where it had spent the week operating a clinic out of San Pablo Apostol, another Episcopal Church.It was the first time Giga Smith, a registered nurse and member of Christ Church in New Bern, North Carolina, joined a medical mission team.“I’ve always wanted to do this,” she said. “At first it felt very emotional, but then I got into the mindset that I was going to do all I could.”Dr. Richard Taft of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, North Carolina, treats a young patient during a medical clinic at San Pablo Apostol in Jimaní. A medical team from North Carolina ran a clinic out of the church Feb. 24-27.Jimaní, population 13,000, is one of two main border crossings between the Dominican Republic and its neighbor to the west, Haiti. In four days, the team treated 716 people, ranging in age from 22 months to 90 years. A local Haitian doctor was on hand throughout the clinic and will provide follow-up care for the patients.“In giving of their time, the teams are showing an example of God’s love to all humanity,” said Karen Carroll, an Episcopal Church-appointed missionary serving the Diocese of the Dominican Republic.To administer medical care in the Dominican Republic, professionals must provide valid credentials and a list of all medications, including expiration dates, lot numbers and intended uses, to Carroll, who files the appropriate paperwork with the public heath ministry.In total, 14 U.S.-based medical mission teams will travel to the Dominican Republic in 2014, up from nine teams in 2013, said Carroll.It’s as much about being a Christian mission and accompanying the Dominican church as it is about providing medical care, say team members.“First and foremost, we are a Christian mission,” said Connie Reynolds, a licensed practical nurse and a Baptist member of the upstate New York team. “And then a medical mission.”Connie Reynolds, an LPN, and Laura Bolan, who plans to become a physician assistant, measured medication in the pharmacy at Santo Tomas Episcopal Church in Gautier. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceStill the doctors, nurses, dieticians and physical therapists provide medical care to many poor and impoverished people who otherwise might fall through the cracks of the country’s public-health system.In 2001, the Dominican Republic approved health-care reforms aimed at providing universal coverage to its citizens. The implementation, however, has been lacking, with rural areas lagging behind urban areas, and fee-based medical care surpassing the care offered through the public system, according to the World Health Organization.International medical missions are sometimes described as “Band-aides,” with criticisms including foreign practitioners’ disrespect for local health-care providers; missioners’ lack of appropriate cultural practices; teams’ inadequate language skills and interpretation for treating patients in a foreign language; and the high travel costs when funds potentially could be spent in more appropriate ways.Well aware of the criticism, the teams making annual visits to the Dominican Republic say that saving just one life and seeing the overall improvement in health and hygiene in the community from year to year justifies their worth.For instance, a young man came to the clinic in Jimaní on the verge of a diabetic crisis, said Dr. Richard Taft, a retired OBGNY from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, North Carolina. After receiving insulin, the young man quickly recovered. Another man whose eyelids were swollen shut began an immediate recovery when treated with antibiotics, added Taft.There used to be a large sugar cane plantation in Gautier and many Haitian migrants lived nearby in bateyes like this one. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceGautier has one medical clinic staffed by a doctor; the nearest hospital is 15-20 minutes away by car. Jimaní has a rudimentary hospital that was built in 1948 and is staffed by six general practitioners, two OBGYNs and one general surgeon, according to North Carolina team members who toured the facility.In many ways, said Dr. Allen Van Dyke, an OBGYN from Ashville, North Carolina, “the medical care is relative to the living conditions.”Witnessing the amount of suffering on the border stirred emotions and thoughts about the U.S.-health care system in team members from North Carolina.Anne Bena, a physical therapist, fits a patient with a walker. Before receiving the walker, the patient, who Bena has known for four years, used two crutches to get around. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceIt was hard to reconcile the enormous amount of money spent on medical care in the United States, said Sandy Johnson, a pediatric nurse, with the enormous amount of suffering many people endure.“I don’t know what you do with the disparity,” said Susan Bickery-Mercer, who’d read “Mountains Beyond Mountains,” Tracy Kidder’s biography of Dr. Paul Farmer and his experience providing medical care to people in Haiti, before making the trip.One of the most powerful things Bickery-Mercer, youth minister at St. Paul’s in Greenville, witnessed as part of the team was the ease with which the local people share their lives.When people are clearly suffering and in need, the connection tends to be at the heart level, she said. It was something Taft sensed as well, and added, that for Christians, ritual Sunday worship can sometimes become a blinder to the Spirit.“To see the rawness of life is a very powerful thing,” said Taft. “Getting out of your comfort zone allows you to step back and reflect. That’s the essence of mission.“We just happen to do it with medicine.”Back in Gautier, community residents must travel either to Boca Chica or Santo Domingo to visit a hospital, said Ermita Reyes, a community and church leader, and even though the hospital in Boca Chica is just a short distance away, it can cost a life.“Their [the team’s] presence is an example of the grace of God in the community,” she said.Savannah Gordon registers a patient on the March 3, the first day of the five-day medical clinic at Santo Tomas. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe New York team’s medical clinic is the only full medical clinic to visit the community annually, said Connie Reynolds, the LPN, who brings her daughter, Savannah Gordon, along to help out.It was the fifth time Gordon, a college student, took part in the medical mission.“After the first year, I came back a different person,” she said. “It’s humbling to see how people live and be part of the community and develop friendships.“It’s heartbreaking to come back and learn that someone has died.”Kevin Bolan’s daughter also accompanies him. Laura Bolan recently graduated with a master’s degree in public health and plans to follow her father’s example and become a physician assistant. To her, the need for more frequent clinics and follow-up trips, as well as efforts toward disease mitigation, are obvious.“It would be great if we could partner with another group and come down every six months,” she said.Paul Gutmann and Domingo de la Rosa display the three-bucket water filtration system. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe care packages, providing soap and toothpaste, and the clean-water bucket-filtration system that Paul Gutmann provides are important because many of the problems people present with come from drinking parasite-infected water and poor personal hygiene, said Laura Bolan.Gutmann works with a local contact to distribute the filtration systems. Each unit costs about $33, but Gutmann raises money and contributes his own money to make them affordable. He may not have high success rates now, but he hopes the next generation, one that has grown up knowing the risks of drinking contaminated water, will begin to filter its own water, he said.With 40 bins of supplies and medication, each weighing between 40 and 50 pounds, the New York medical team brings enough medication to leave behind to be distributed by a nurse working locally. Patients leave the clinic with three months’ worth and can return for follow-up tests and more medication, as needed.“The challenge is leaving them with enough medication,” said Kevin Bolan, who already had been thinking about organizing a skeleton crew to return and run a clinic over Labor Day weekend. “It’s a work in progress; we have to figure out what works.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The medical analysis done by the school said he cannot start because he has “an amoeba and dirty blood”.We have found we cannot trust hardly anyone: lawyers, pastors, doctors, vets, etc. One doctor has told us it will cost $600 to treat this boy, but he refuses to tell us what medicine he will use to treat him.

This re-creation of a family home, tailored to its occupant’s lifestyles, was realised through careful consideration of layout and context. Gresham Street House is an example of vernacular architecture, the architect and Director of Jackson Teece, Daniel Hudson lived there for 6 years before taking on the redesign. Ultimately, he has taken an existing “Queenslander” and shaped the design to create a home that acts as the epitome of shelter in a harsh climate.Save this picture!Scheme“Internally it was almost the opposite of what it should be. It was around the wrong way. So the main objective was to reconfigure the layout, the program of the house, without changing any of the wall locations.” – Daniel Hudson, Jackson Teece Director.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesThe retention of the existing masonry, coupled with a pragmatic and performative design defined the spatial arrangement and material selection. Passive sustainability and design principles resulted in reduced waste, minimising the carbon footprint and embodied energy. The house can be opened up in summer to purge heat and closed down to cocoon its occupants in the winter. The addition of a flexible indoor/outdoor pavilion type space further supports an energy-efficient design and provides a large communal family space with a connection to the pool and landscape.Save this picture!Floor plansThe redesign of the floor plan responds directly to the site’s orientation and context. The living spaces which were located on the southwest of the plan are now connected to the garden and have become the heart of the home. Relocating these functions into a pavilion at the rear of the house provides a more appropriate response to the context and provides a space for family activities and entertaining.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesThe design carefully considered solar access and control. The pavilion addition faces north, featuring angled timber blades to shade the east and west façades. Modeling determined the blade’s angle, eliminating direct solar penetration during the summer, with full sun penetration in winter. Galleries of louvers are oriented to encourage cool air flow from the pool and the cooling bay breeze from the east, while high positioned louvers allow heat to escape.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesEfficiency in use of materials, such as the re-purposing of porcelain and stone slab off-cuts, required pre-planning and careful overseeing of manufacture to ensure reduced waste. Considered selection of plantation timbers, inclusion of rainwater tanks for garden irrigation and installation of a solar array was also undertaken to limit this project’s short and long-term environmental impacts.Save this picture!© Christopher Frederick JonesA new secure timber batten entry annex flanks the existing eastern façade, allowing the house to be left open to freely ventilate, the entry stair doubles as an internal access to the lower level resulting in reduced spatial impact on floor space.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Skepticism Abound as EPA Works to Complete E15 Rule by June 1 SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 14, 2019 SHARE Skepticism Abound as EPA Works to Complete E15 Rule by June 1“I’m looking forward to putting E15 in my car when we’re rolling in the summer months again.”That’s NCGA first vice president of the Corn Board Kevin Ross talking about the proposed rule by the EPA to allow for year-round sales of E15. The administration released the proposal on Tuesday that would remove the Reid Vapor Pressure barrier.American Coalition for Ethanol CEO Brian Jennings says this rule though does much more than just allow E15 year-round, and that might pose a problem in getting it completed by June 1, the beginning of the summer driving season when E15 is currently restricted.“It contemplates several potential changes to how RINs are handled. That’s going to create a firestorm within the refining community.”Jennings is skeptical that the rule gets completed by June 1 because even those in the ethanol industry may question those RIN reforms should they negatively impact retailers, marketers, and suppliers that are selling higher ethanol blends.“I’ll be the first one to happily eat crow, however, on June 1 if they get this done, and say that I was wrong, and sing the praises of the administration.”Before finalizing the rule, EPA will now accept comments from biofuel producers, farmers, and other stakeholders. Jennings is confident that it will eventually get done.“Our conversations with the agency make us confident that they do have a variety of very legally sound ways they can get this done and we’ll just be working hard with them. Especially getting retailers to comment during this public period now to make it clear to EPA that the retail community has been on the sidelines in some parts because this rule has not been addressed.”And Ross believes those retailers are the key piece.“Flat out, it’s great to see it move forward, but to really make the impact to the market in the future we’re going to need more stations.” Facebook Twitter Skepticism Abound as EPA Works to Complete E15 Rule by June 1 Facebook Twitter Previous articleCrop Insurance Deadline Arrives Amid Widespread ConfusionNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 15, 2019 Eric Pfeiffer
Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Receive email alerts Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor April 2, 2021 Find out more After three years of persecution, the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) representative in Turkey, Erol Önderoğlu, was finally acquitted today, as were his fellow defendants – human rights defender Şebnem Korur Fincancı and the writer Ahmet Nesin. But Önderoğlu is not yet off the hook. He faces another trial that is due to start on 7 November.Önderoğlu, Fincancı and Nesin were accused of “terrorist propaganda,” “justifying crime” and “inciting crime” because, in order to defend media pluralism, each of them symbolically took turns at being the Kurdish newspaper Özgür Gündem’s “editor for a day” in mid-2016. The victim of judicial persecution, this newspaper ended up being forcibly closed in August 2016.Who is Erol Önderoğlu?Read his portraitIn the second trial due to start on 7 November, Önderoğlu is again accused of “terrorist propaganda” along with 16 other activists for expressing their solidarity with hundreds of university academics prosecuted in connection with a peace petition.“Erol Onderoglu’s acquittal is an exceptional victory for justice and press freedom in a country where both are being trampled on every day,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Our deep relief is tinged with bitterness because our representative will be on trial again in four months’ time. The way this historic press freedom defender is being harassed is a deep injustice. We therefore urge the Turkish judicial system to demonstrate the same good sense that it showed today and to quickly abandon this new prosecution.”Önderoğlu added: “I would like to express my deep gratitude to all those who supported us during this trial. This fight for all of our unjustly prosecuted or imprisoned colleagues continues.”The already worrying situation of Turkey’s media has become critical since an abortive coup in July 2016. Many media outlets have been closed summarily, without any effective form of recourse, mass trials are being held and Turkey holds the world record for the number of professional journalists in prison. It is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
