The falling share price suggested investors weren’t keen on Sutherland’s appointment, coming after he jumped ship from the “ungovernable” Co-operative Group after just 10 months. But this morning it looks as though they are now backing him.  While it’s too early to say this performance is down to Sutherland, it’s reassuring for investors that there don’t appear to be any major gremlins for him to have to fix.  What SuperGroup saidSutherland said:  Our upgraded infrastructure was tested to the full by Black Friday and in the busy lead up to Christmas and has proven to be resilient and effective. A record performance from ecommerce combined with strong store operations led to what became a truly multi-channel Christmas.In shortAs the final scores are totted up to establish who was a Christmas cracker and who a Christmas turkey, SuperGroup’s 11-week trading update suggests it is firmly in the first camp.  Catherine Neilan whatsapplast_img read more

Business group shocked by new weaker manufacturing figures

first_imgMonday 6 July 2015 9:12 pm Express KCS whatsapp whatsapp Share A leading business group has said that it is surprised by new figures out today showing a sharp slowdown in UK manufacturing.The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) quarterly economic survey (QES), based on responses from nearly 7,500 firms, recorded drops in all the key manufacturing balances in the second quarter, with most balances lower than their average pre-economic crisis levels.Responding to the results, BCC director-general John Longworth said: “The manufacturing sector has battled against structural problems for years but, even in that context, the scale of the slowdown being experienced by our manufacturers is a surprise and a concern.”“Part of the reason might be down to the strength of sterling against the euro and the dollar. But currency fluctuations are not the only issues at stake,” he added.Longworth called upon chancellor George Osborne to address “structural” problems hampering growth in manufacturing in tomorrow’s emergency summer Budget, saying the government should increase investment in infrastructure spending and do more to help British businesses working in new markets overseas.

The owlet is special due to it still having an attached “egg tooth” on the tip of its beak.An “egg tooth” is a small deposit of calcium on the upper beak of most birds. It helps them break through the shell of their egg.When hatching, birds use the egg tooth to break through the inner membrane of the shell, which allows them to use their lungs to breathe for the first time. Then, the egg tooth is used to break a hole in the shell, called “pipping,” giving them a breath of fresh air. RELATEDTOPICS Advertisementlast_img read more

Casino Luring in Bored North Koreans

first_img Casino Luring in Bored North Koreans News AvatarCho Jong Ik North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China SHARE News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak By Cho Jong Ik – 2011.01.27 6:09pm center_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR High level North Korean cadres are visiting a casino in the far northeast of the country, disguising their identities so as to avoid government regulations which forbid them from entering, a defector-led NGO has revealed.Reporting the news, an NK Intellectuals Solidarity inside source explained yesterday, “Recently, cases of high level North Korean cadres disguising their identities to enter Orakjang Casino, which is in the Emperor Hotel in Rasun City, have been occurring frequently.”The Emperor Hotel was established in 2000 by Emperor Group, a Hong Kong-based property developer. With around 100 rooms, bars, cafes, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, night club, sports center and a fine sea view, the hotel, which cost $64 million to build, employs around 500 people, including a number of North Korean women. According to the source, while the hotel was regularly frequented by Chinese tourists and officials when it opened, it closed down at the end of 2004 after one official, acting independently, squandered a fortune in public funds there. However, seizing the opportunity presented by Kim Jong Il’s visits to China last year, the hotel reopened and, according to the source, has recently been doing well off Russian traders, among others. On this, the source explained, “One of the conditions placed on the opening of the hotel was that North Koreans would not be allowed to enter, and at the beginning their entry seemed to have been thoroughly prohibited,” adding that therefore, “However, as the number of Chinese traders going to the casino increased, so high North Korean cadres doing business with the Chinese and wealthy North Koreans disguising their identities also entered. The North Koreans apparently pretend to be Korean-Chinese when they enter the casino, where some reportedly gamble away as much as $10,000 per day.Because North Korean enterprises and factories are unable to operate properly due to a lack of raw materials and capital, average cadres and staff go to gamble mostly to relieve their boredom, the source explained.

He has been a journalist…More Read more Home EU adopts cybersecurity rules, flags China concerns The European Parliament adopted rules designed to reinforce cybersecurity in the European Union (EU), while also expressing concern about the growing influence of Chinese IT suppliers in the market.CybersecurityThe Parliament adopted the Cyber Security Act initially proposed by European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker in his State of the Union address in September 2017.Among the provisions is a strengthened role for the European Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and the creation of a common certification framework for IT services, systems and equipment.In 2018, the EC proposed the creation of a network of centres of cybersecurity expertise to reinforce research and deployment of new capabilities in the EU. Under the next long-term budget, the EC has proposed investment of more than €2 billion to reinforce cybersecurity in the Digital Europe Programme along with the Horizon Europe scheme, with €63.5 million invested as groundwork in four pilot projects.WorriesMembers of the European Parliament also noted “deep concern about recent allegations that 5G equipment may have embedded backdoors that would allow Chinese manufacturers and authorities to have unauthorised access to private and personal data and telecommunications in the EU”.It was noted there are concerns that third-country equipment vendors may present a security risk if their domestic laws oblige “all enterprises to cooperate with the state in safeguarding a very broad definition of national security also outside their own country”.There were calls for the EC and member states to provide guidance on how to tackle cyber threats and vulnerabilities when buying 5G equipment, for example by using equipment from different vendors, introducing multi-phase procurement processes, and “establishing a strategy to reduce Europe’s dependence on foreign cybersecurity technology”.In addition, there was a call for ENISA to develop a certification scheme covering 5G rollouts.The comments came as the EC set out “ten concrete actions” for EU heads of states or governments to discuss concerning relations with China.While the broad-ranging talking points address issues such as human rights and climate change, also included is the need for a more balanced and reciprocal economic relationship, and security implications for critical digital infrastructure.

Bloomberg noted a decision is expected to be announced in parliament shortly afterwards.A ban would be a significant u-turn from the UK government after clearing providers to use Huawei in 5G RAN equipment, subject to limits, in January. Since then some UK politicians and US authorities have tried to force a reversal and called for the ripping out of Huawei equipment already in use.The Telegraph reported operators would likely be given until 2025 to remove the vendor’s kit, while Bloomberg cited comments from politicians demanding a ban on purchasing new equipment from late 2021 with a rip-out deadline of between 2023 and 2025.Huawei has denied its equipment is a security risk and underlined its credentials in the UK several times.Ahead of the meeting tomorrow, The Times reported the vendor was aiming to strike a last-minute deal to have any ban pushed back until after the next parliamentary election in 2025.Meanwhile, during an interview with the BBC News, BT CEO Philip Jansen reiterated calls made by his CTIO Howard Watson and Vodafone UK’s head of networks Andrea Dona to a parliamentary committee last week.They urged the setting realistic timescales for any order to remove Huawei equipment from the UK’s networks, citing five years to seven years as a minimum timescale to avoid service disruption.
