Tesco and Dairy Farm have declined to comment.Casino owns 36 per cent of the Big C Supercentre chain, Thailand’s second-largest hypermarket operator by number of stores after British-owned Tesco Lotus. whatsapp whatsapplast_img read more

Sanofi’s £12bn bid is rejected

first_img Share whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp FRENCH pharmaceuticals giant Sanofi-Aventis is poised to go hostile with its $18.4bn (£11.9bn) offer for Genzyme after the US biotechnology company again refused to enter talks.Genzyme rejected Sanofi’s $69-per-share approach for the second time yesterday. Boss Henri Termeer said the board was “not prepared to engage in negotiations… based upon an opportunistic proposal with an unrealistic starting price that dramatically undervalues the company”.Sanofi chief executive Chris Viehbacher described Genzyme’s response as “relatively unsurprising”. He said Sanofi would prefer to deal with Genzyme’s top brass but hinted the drugs maker was ready to take a hostile offer to the Massachusetts-based outfit’s shareholders, adding: “We are prepared to consider all alternatives to complete this transaction.”Sanofi hopes to leverage investor dissatisfaction surrounding manufacturing problems at Genzyme, which makes medicines to counter rare conditions such as Gaucher and Fabry disease. Termeer has been weakened in recent months by calls for his removal from investors including Carl Icahn, the activist fund manager.Analysts suggested Sanofi would have to put $70 per share on the table to enter discussions. The final deal price would be around $75 per share, or $20bn. Shares in Genzyme closed 3.39 per cent up at $69.91.

London hoteliers boosted by room price increases

first_img HOTELS in the capital have seen takings go up so far this year thanks to room price increases, a survey has shown. Rooms were on average £128.31 a night in February, compared with £120.28 in the same month last year. The data from PKF Hotel Consultancy Services showed that occupancy was down by 4.7 per cent.In the regions, figures for February show room rates increased 1.8 per cent from £59.81 in 2010 to £60.91 this year. Robert Barnard, partner for hotel consultancy services at PKF, said: “These are healthy figures for the industry and I expect, particularly for London, that the figures will remain strong over the next few months with the Royal Wedding at the end of April expected to bring in additional visitors to the capital.“It also benefits from the build up to the Olympic Games and the Champions League Final. The regions however, will more likely have a slower recovery.” In Leeds, room rates declined 0.3 per cent to £62.84 in March, but room occupancy was up 0.8 per cent to 74.6 per cent. This meant rooms yield increased overall by 0.5 per cent to £46.89. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeFilm OracleHer Love Triangle Inspired 3 Of The Most Popular Songs Ever WrittenFilm OracleTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Survey launched to find benchmark for face-to-face donor attrition

Howard Lake | 1 May 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The first survey of donor retention behaviour among charities that have undertaken street or door-to-door ‘face-to-face’ (F2F) donor recruitment campaigns has been launched.Any charity that has undertaken street or door fundraising over the past 10 years is being invited to take part.The survey is being launched with support from the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA), the body which acts as the self-regulator throughout the UK for all forms of face-to-face fundraising. It addresses the subjects of attrition and best practice for donor retention from regular giving campaigns, and aims to produce a set of benchmarks relating to the retention levels of donors recruited by street or door fundraising.The PFRA Attrition Survey 2008 has been devised and set up by Morag Fleming, Head of Fundraising at the charity Quarriers and Rupert Tappin, MD of professional fundraising organisation Future Fundraising.Fleming said: “In our sector, attrition has been a hidden topic for a long time, and we really want to bring this out into the open.“I often hear talk of industry averages when it comes to attrition, but nobody can actually refer to consistently measured statistics. We hope that the results from our survey will, for the first time, give the opportunity for individual charities to benchmark themselves against industry averages”.The survey has been sent to every current charity member of the PFRA, and an online version has been created as a survey using SurveyMonkey, which can be accessed via the link given below.“The aim of this survey is to give our members a robust management tool with which to predict their return on investment,” said Mick Aldridge, CEO of the PFRA. “Charities will then be able to go to market on a much more informed basis with respect to the long-term performance of well-planned acquisition campaigns”.The survey should be completed by 23 May, and results are sent direct to Mick Aldridge at the PFRA who will then anonomise each survey response, and pass them on to Fleming and Tappin for analysis.The idea for the survey was initially conceived, and built, by Rupert Tappin. “Without establishing a benchmarked set of data,” he said, “it is very hard for charities to identify trends in their regular giving programmes year-on-year, and makes it almost impossible to assess the impact of trialling new ideas and techniques. There is so much potential for charities to work in partnership with their providers/in-house departments once attrition has begun to be benchmarked, which could have a massive impact on enhancing income to charities over the long term”.All organisations that take part in the survey will receive a copy of the summary report, to be produced by Fleming and Tappin early July 2008. They will present their findings at a ‘Focus On F2F’ seminar at the Institute of Fundraising National Convention on 7 July 2008. Each individual organisation can further request of Mick Aldridge, on a strictly confidential basis, their exact position within the anonomised, benchmarked data.Any UK organisation wishing to take part should complete the online survey.https://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=vC949prQVrN7_2fMEXXkrbKA_3d_3d Survey launched to find benchmark for face-to-face donor attritionlast_img read more

Local Soroptimists Honor Deserving Women at ‘Live Your Dream’ Luncheon

first_imgGatherings Local Soroptimists Honor Deserving Women at ‘Live Your Dream’ Luncheon From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, March 28, 2016 | 11:32 am Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Business News Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday The Soroptimist mission of helping women and girls was exemplified at its local chapter’s annual “Live Your Dream” luncheon, held on March 23rd at the Women’s City Club in Pasadena. At this event, the Altadena-Pasadena branch of Soroptimist International honored Donna Arnds with the Live Your Dream Award, Grace Rickert with the Violet Richardson Award, and Linda Offray with the Ruby Award. “This award luncheon represents the signature program of Soroptimist International,” said club Co-President Phyllis Howard.The Soroptimist Ruby Award acknowledges a woman who works to improve the lives of women and girls via her personal or professional activities. This year’s award was given to Linda Offray, who founded Shepherd’s Door Domestic Violence Resource Center in 2000. The center provides assistance to abused women in the Altadena and Pasadena area, and offers services that include crisis counseling, support groups, legal services, youth violence prevention education, and professional training. “Receiving this award was such a pleasant surprise,” Linda remarked, who left a job with the City of Pasadena to devote her career to helping victims of domestic violence. The Soroptimists gave Shepherd’s Door a monetary award to help support its work in the community.The Violet Richardson Award recognizes young high school women for demonstrating leadership by identifying a vital issue in their community, and addressing it through their volunteer efforts. This year’s award was given to 18-year-old Grace Rickert of La Canada, who taught a sewing skills class at the Door of Hope, a local residence for women and children who are fleeing abusive relationships. Grace chose this volunteer project to earn her Girl Scout Gold Award, and felt that her Sewing Skills Development Program would be an ideal way to teach valuable skills to her students. “I wanted to work with women at the Door of Hope who are victims of domestic violence,” she explained, “and sewing is a big part of my life. I wanted to share this passion with them.” Grace organized three fundraisers to raise money for materials and to purchase a permanent, portable sewing center so that the residents could continue to utilize their new skills after her project ended.The Live Your Dream Award assists women by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment opportunities. These women are the primary source of financial support for their families, are often leaving an undesirable domestic situation, and are returning to school to better their lives. This year’s award was given to Donna Arnds, who left an abusive relationship and raised her two children alone with little or no child support. She began working for the Door of Hope and began her journey towards helping others make a difference. Donna began taking classes at UCLA in 2015, and has maintained an “A” average. Her two sons have graduated from high school, and it’s a good time for her to focus attention on her dream of completing her degree. Donna plans to create a new career helping other women achieve their goals. “At first, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to apply for this award,” said Donna. “However, I knew that I would be among friends if I did.” The Soroptimist Live Your Dream Grant will help offset Donna’s tuition and other expenses.The award recipients received proclamations from Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek, Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, Assemblyman Chris Holden, State Senator Anthony Portantino, and Congresswoman Judy Chu. Each of the awardees also received stylish handbags from Soroptimist club member Hazel Salomon-Jimmy, the proprietor of Hazel’s Bagz. “I’m always proud to be a Soroptimist at this event,” Hazel stated. And, as with every year, attendees agreed that the 2016 Live Your Dream luncheon was a most inspiring event. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Subscribe Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Countries Where Men Have Difficulties Finding A WifeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Things You’ve Always Wanted To Know About RihannaHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Ways To Get Into Shape You’ve Never Tried BeforeHerbeautyHerbeauty First Heatwave Expected Next Week center_img Make a comment Your email address will not be published.

Bhatt’s contention was that first the cognizance was taken against him in the NDPS Case by Jodhpur Special Court. Later on when the subsequent charge-sheet was filed against him before the Special Court in Palanpur and the cognizance was taken against him. He contended that the basic foundation of these two criminal cases is one and the same, therefore, Section 186 of Cr.P.C. is very much attracted in the present case. Section 186 CrPC enables the High Court to decide the question in case of doubt as to which of the two different Courts having taken cognizance of the same offence should inquire or try. In case both the Courts are subordinate to the same High Court, under Clause (a), the decision shall be taken by the same Court. But, in a case where the two different Courts are the Courts subordinate to different High Courts, under Clause (b), the decision shall be taken by the High Court within the local limits of whose appellate criminal jurisdiction the proceedings first commenced. Taking note of the records of the case, Justice Manoj Kumar Garg observed that the first complaint lodged at Palanpur and the subsequent complaint filed by Sumer Singh Rajpurohit at Pali are related to two different and distinct complaints.The provision of Section 186 of Cr.P.C. is applicable only where the cases instituted in different courts are in respect of the same offence arising out of the same occurrence and that the transaction and that the parties are the same, which is not the case in the case at hand, the judge said. The court further observed:  One complaint which was lodged at Palanpur pertains to conspiracy and the offence relating to the NDPS Act by planting contraband, whereas, the complaint filed by Sumer Singh Rajpurohit in Pali is in relation to his false implication in a NDPS case arising out of a property dispute. To further conclude, it would be unfit to put the present case under the microscopic view of Section 186 due to the aforesaid reasons. Further, Section 186 empowers the High Court to settle at rest anomaly over jurisdiction avenue. If all the cases have been instituted within the original jurisdiction of the same High Court, the same would be decided by the same High Court as per Sub-clause (a) of 186. In case, the cases happen to be instituted within the local jurisdiction of different High Courts, then a privilege has been given to that High Court within whose jurisdiction, the proceeding first commenced. The Court also added that when the proceedings commenced at PS Palanpur City, Gujarat, the relief sought by the petitioner seeking stay of the proceedings before the court of Special Judge NDPS Cases, Palanpur is without any merit. “Moreover, the conduct of the present petitioner is writ large from the observations made by the Hon’ble Gujarat High Court mentioning that the applicant has scant respect for the Courts” the bench said while dismissing his petition.Case name: Sanjiv R.

Texas governor issues executive orders on mass shootings

first_imgiStock(EL PASO, Texas) — Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed eight executives orders on Thursday in an effort to “better protect” residents amid calls for action in the wake of two deadly mass shootings there.Abbott, a Republican, said the orders would improve requirements for authorities when it comes to reporting suspicious individuals and make it easier for the public to identify potential mass shooters. The orders, however, do not deal with guns.“Texas must achieve several objectives to better protect our communities and our residents from mass shootings,” Abbott said in a statement Thursday. “One of those objectives is to marshal law enforcement resources to stop violent criminals before they commit mass murders. But more must be done.”“I will continue to work expeditiously with the legislature on laws to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals, while safeguarding the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans,” he added.The announcement comes as the state works to recover from two mass shootings that claimed the lives of 29 people and wounded dozens more.A gunman targeted Mexicans at a Walmart in El Paso on Aug. 3, killing 22 people. Then, another shooter killed seven and injured nearly two dozen others in Odessa on Saturday, just a day before looser firearm restrictions went into effect statewide.In the aftermath of both shootings, officials learned that the mother of the El Paso gunman had expressed concerns to law enforcement about her son, the governor’s office noted in a statement announcing the orders. In Odessa, the killer had called both local and federal authorities prior to his shooting spree.“Today’s directives by the governor will help close the information gaps when suspicion of a potential mass shooter arises,” the office said in a statement. “While these executive orders will enhance law enforcement’s ability to respond and prevent these shootings, legislative solutions are still needed.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
