The ONS said it was delaying the publication of these figures until 13 December due to “potential errors”.Nonetheless, Friday’s data should provide some reassurance to the Bank of England that pipeline inflationary pressures are easing even though a rise in VAT next year is likely to keep consumer price inflation well above the Bank’s two per cent target.“It could be a sign that factory gate inflation is past its peak, which would at least be helpful for goods price inflation at the CPI level if that trend were to be maintained,” said Philip Shaw, Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The decrease was equivalent to one per cent of net profits and two per cent of earnings per share.Chief executive Ian Cook said Colgate was planning to spend even more on advertising to “fuel top-line growth worldwide.”“We expect our sharp focus on cost-saving initiatives to deliver another year of gross margin expansion,” he said.Net sales saw a more marked decline and missed analysts’ expectations. Over the quarter, sales revenue fell to $3.98bn from $4.08bn the previous year, against forecasts of $4.06bn revenue. However, organic sales grew by one per cent.Cook said he anticipated “mid-single digit earnings per share growth for the year.” 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 ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proofcenter_img Tags: NULL alison.lock Share Colgate sales slip in fourth quarter last_img read more

first_imgThe Rolls-Royce share price fell by 53% in 2020. Should I buy now? Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. 2020 was a tough year for the Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) share price. The pandemic disrupted many industries, but one of the most heavily impacted was aerospace. Unfortunately for Rolls-Royce, that’s the sector in which it generates most of its revenue.However, now that multiple vaccines are being rolled out, is the Rolls-Royce share price a bargain? Let’s take a closer look.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…What caused the Rolls-Royce share price dive?Just over 50% of the stock’s revenue is generated by manufacturing and servicing aircraft engines. With Covid-19 keeping most flights grounded, demand for this business segment hasn’t been very high.As such, Rolls-Royce has suffered significant business loss, and the firm expects to make a net loss of £2.6bn by the end of 2020.Following multiple vaccines becoming available, the aerospace industry has begun recovering, and with it, the Rolls-Royce share price. However, investor expectations should be kept in check as the sector’s rate of recovery will be very slow. So slow in fact that current forecasts indicate that the industry won’t return to pre-Covid operational levels until 2024.Some worrying financialsIf Covid-19 was the only problem facing the business, then at today’s share price, Rolls-Royce would look cheap in my eyes. Unfortunately, the company has been struggling for many years, long before the pandemic began.Looking at the firm’s net income over the past six years, it has only been profitable for two of them, and not by a large margin.What’s even more concerning is the state of the balance sheet, more specifically the level of debt. Due to the low operational performance throughout 2020, the management team borrowed more money to keep the business afloat. Today, the firm’s total debt stands at £8.7bn, which is almost the same as the current £9bn market capitalisation of the entire company.Even before the pandemic, the business was in quite a bit of trouble with its debt level. Combining its pre-Covid interest payments with capital leases results in a negative coverage ratio. In other words, Rolls-Royce isn’t generating enough income to pay its bills.As such, the firm has been forced to issue new shares to raise capital or take on more debt. And it’s done both – a serious red flag in my eyes.Rolls-Royce share price: a bargain or a value trap?The Rolls-Royce share price may recover in the near term as investors regain confidence in the sector and as economies globally start to recover. However, in my opinion, the company has some serious financial problems that need resolving.As such, it’s not a stock I would buy shares in, even at its current price. I think there are much better opportunities out there to grow my wealth, with a much lower level of risk.

Ely, the 10th bishop of Vermont. Photo: Greg Merhar[Episcopal Diocese of Vermont] The Rt. Rev. Shannon MacVean-Brown is now the 1,122nd bishop of The Episcopal Church and the first African American to serve as Bishop of Vermont. Her Sept. 28 ordination and consecration was witnessed live by approximately 900 people at Ira Allen Chapel and overflow seating areas on the University of Vermont campus in Burlington, not including those who watched live online.Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry served as chief consecrator. Among the co-consecrating bishops were the Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Ely, 10th bishop of Vermont; the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, bishop of Indianapolis; the Rt. Rev. Gayle E. Harris, bishop suffragan of Massachusetts; the Rt. Rev. Chilton Knudsen, eighth bishop of Maine and assisting bishop of Washington; and the Rt. Rev. Stewart Wood, ninth bishop of Michigan.MacVean-Brown was accompanied by her husband Phil, daughters Annalise and Indira, and family and friends from all over the country.The guest preacher was MacVean-Brown’s father, the Rev. Canon Ronald Spann, a retired priest who serves as assisting priest and director of the Spirituality Center at Christ Episcopal Church in Grosse Pointe, Michigan. In his sermon, Spann expounded on the biblical passage Romans 8:30, declaring, “Those whom God called, God also justified; and those whom God justified, God also glorified.”“The designer turned ceramicist was a married grad student in art education who didn’t believe she was qualified for a seminary career,” he said, as he explained how MacVean-Brown’s lived experiences culminated in her faith becoming her full-time work.Spann also mentioned the historical significance of MacVean-Brown’s election as an African American bishop in Vermont, referring to the Rt. Rev. John Henry Hopkins, the first Episcopal bishop of Vermont, who in 1861 authored a book defending slavery and criticizing abolitionists.“And in walks number 11,” he said matter-of-factly, garnering cheers and a standing ovation.“And isn’t it marvelous that number 11 follows number 10, whose own presiding bishop calls him a man of courage and a man of wisdom,” Spann said of the now retired bishop Thomas C. Ely, eliciting more cheers and another standing ovation.The three-and-a-half-hour service featured a mix of hymns, classical music, and gospel selections performed by Inora Brass, the Plattsburgh State Gospel Choir, Cameo Baroque, Church of the Messiah Gospel Choir, and a Diocesan Massed Choir composed of singers from around the diocese.The hymn at the retiring procession, “God Beyond All Human Praises,” held special significance as a selection commissioned for the consecration of the Rt. Rev. Mary Adelia McLeod in 1993 as the ninth bishop of Vermont and the first woman to serve as bishop of the Vermont diocese.MacVean-Brown was formally seated at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Burlington on Sept. 29. The guest preacher was the Very Rev. Miguelina Howell, dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford, Connecticut. The service was recorded and will be made available on the diocese’s website.The Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, also known locally as The Episcopal Church in Vermont, is made up of more than 6,100 members in 45 congregations across Vermont.

I told my husband maybe the fans can sit in the stands at AHS, and not get eaten by the mosquitoes, since they sprayed, and can watch the football games without getting eaten alive, and he said,” there are no more football games this year over at the AHS….and I was really??? I just don’t know this football stuff, or even care, but I do like to see our town win, and I had really hoped Wekiva Mustangs would win the championship, and AHS too, but maybe next year…….

Once at the counter, he got out his credit card to pay the ticket which was only $ 10.00, and the court officers told him that there would be a surcharge of an additional $ 1.75 making the charge a total of $ 11.75 total for using the credit card. The guy said, no way, and he left. He was mad, and came back to the court counter with $ 10.00 in rolled up pennies this time, to pay the parking ticket, and the court officer told him that they would not accept the rolled pennies as payment. Then the guy was outraged and started arguing, and they told him to leave, and so the guy did start leaving, and had even got through the set of glass doors to the next exit set of glass doors, and here came the two court officers and grabbed the guy around the neck, with his back turned to them, and started choking him down until he was unconscious, but not before he defecated all over himself. Then he was arrested and hauled to jail, and had to bond out, and now he has a big time lawsuit against the court and the court officers, as it was recorded on video inside the court, and he was complying and leaving as they jumped him….it is on the internet, if you want to watch it……..wow!

They were really picking on her, I have to admit, and saying that she couldn’t even do that right. I mean it was catty, really. I liked what they showed she had done. It was lots and lots of big vases down each side with an aisle down the middle, and the vases had big tall bare sticks with white icy looking glitter and a frosty looking cold theme in some shades of black and white and frosty looking colors. I liked it, but when they compared hers with the traditional red bows, and greenery photos, it did look a little cold and bare, but I think she was after something modern and sleek….oh well, I liked Melania’s Christmas decorating better than Ivanka’s Thanksgiving centerpiece decorating of the big giant natural clam shell on the table, with the mini white pumpkins and whatever else she had threw in that thing.

I went outside and looked to the east, and it is very bright, but it is not very big at all. Then I walked around out front, and looked at my Christmas lights, and then I heard a owl hooting over in my neighbor’s big oak tree. The owl must could see extra good with the bright moon tonight, and was looking for something to get, I suppose. I didn’t feel any mosquitoes biting, so I guess the mosquito fogger they sent around here on this street a couple of nights ago, must be helping. It was the truck fogger, and not the aerial spraying like before. I think this super moon is suppose to get bigger later on tonight, or before daybreak. It is not as big as a moon I saw back in October, over the Family Dollar on RS Road, that was huge and orange……so beautiful.

The bakery clerk said that they don’t have them all the time, but only sometimes… I also like the Italian Wedding Soup, that I had one time somewhere, it was so good!

Mama Mia Reply Reply Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 I’m sure the Festival of the Trees must look really pretty lit up there at City Hall atrium in the dark, with the lights off, or dimmed low. Coming through town the other night, I saw the decorations on the poles for the first time, lit at night this year. They looked really nice. When I was a kid, all the towns used to string the Christmas lights across the roads, but I think most all the towns stopped doing that, as they claimed it confused people driving and they couldn’t see the red lights, in order to stop, because of the Christmas lights in multiple strands all the way through the main drags. Way before the notorious, evil red- light cameras started snapping drivers with violations…… Mama Mia Mama Mia Mama Mia I see they are going to have a little gathering in the Wekiva Spring Park right before Christmas after dark, on the slope down to the springs, and have Christmas carols, and the concession stand open for hot chocolate, and coffee. Bring your own flashlights, blankets, chairs, etc. I’ll have to see what date it is again. I have heard of it before, but might go this year, never been, if I can take my little pooch with me, that is. December 3, 2017 at 10:14 pm Mama Mia Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. I decided to make a red velvet cake, with cream cheese icing, with crushed peppermint candy on top of the icing. I couldn’t resist. I will make it this week, as I have to go get a few more things I’ll need to bake it. Life is too short, not to have the simple things, you really want, but don’t truly need. My Mama used to make divinity sea foam candy, fudge, Hershey Bar Cakes, fruitcakes, fruit salad, coconut cakes, and always had hard candy sitting around in glass jars on the coffee table, oranges, tangerines, nuts, and all of that stuff sitting around at Christmas time. Plus Poppycock with pecans too, Christmas cookies, and chocolate candies. I am serious! Honestly, it is a wonder I didn’t pass out with hyperglycemia, or sugar overload. I didn’t have a clue, at that time, I had diabetes. I didn’t know, until after I had pneumonia and thought I was going to die, I was so sick, and was diagnosed shortly afterwards with diabetes. These owls are showing up and hooting because they don’t have all the woods like they used to have. It is only going to get worse for the wildlife and the traffic. I was on Piedmont Wekiva Road leaving Walmart the other night, and heading north and OMG, it was shortly after dark, and it was a total race track! I can only guess as to what the future will hold around this town with more traffic…..it won’t be safe to leave the house. The authorities need to do something about putting some barriers around that retention pond at Piedmont Wekiva Road and 436! That is extremely dangerous, if a car careens into that waterway…..why do the authorities ignore the potential danger there??? Does someone have to die there first to get something done???

first_imgOn July 25, 2,000 youthful anti-racists marched here in solidarity with Portland resistance. As in Portland, Ore., federal repressive forces have been sent to Seattle.The march was called by the Youth Liberation Front. Chanting “Black Lives Matter,” the demonstrators headed to the site of a new youth jail. Located in Seattle’s historic Black community, the youth jail is going through a massive $200 billion construction rebuild. As demonstrators chanted, “Free them all,” five construction trailers were set ablaze at the site.Construction trailers for youth jail, located in historically Black neighborhood, burned by Seattle protesters, July 25.Demonstrators then marched on the East Precinct, a base of police repression. This precinct was forced to close in June for about 20 days after anti-racist resistance to the cops led to the community takeover of six surrounding city blocks. The site was named the Capital Hill Organized Protest and occupied by thousands of people, until police repression forcibly dismantled CHOP. The East Precinct was attacked by anti-racists during a June 25 demonstration and suffered serious damage. The cops then attacked the protesters, since in their role property is more valuable than working-class human beings. They used blast balls, sponge rounds and pepper spray in a wave of brutality. Forty-five demonstrators were arrested. (South Seattle Emerald)The July 25 militant mass protest showed that the movement is prepared to answer the racist repression of Trump. The police response proved that Trump and his Democratic Party counterparts in the political establishment of Seattle and Portland are part of the same repressive state apparatus.
