Zaven Boyrazian | Monday, 17th May, 2021 | More on: AML The rising Aston Martin share priceI’ve previously explored why the Aston Martin share price started climbing last year. But as a reminder, earlier in 2020, the company received a £500m rescue package from Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll. After this, the firm began a major restructuring that saw the introduction of Tobias Moers as the new CEO.Since the last time I looked at it, Aston Martin has published its first-quarter results for 2021, and they were actually quite promising. Total revenue for the quarter surged by 153% compared to a year ago, reaching £224.4m. This growth was almost entirely organic and mainly stemmed from the immense popularity of the newly launched DBX model. Despite having a lofty price tag of £158,000, Aston Martin sold 746 of these cars.Looking at the performance of its other models, the GT line of vehicles didn’t fare as well, with total deliveries dropping by 24%. But its classic Sports line more than made up for it with 312 cars sold — a 66% increase compared to a year ago.Despite these impressive figures, the company still reported a £42.2m loss for the period. But that’s a substantial improvement compared to the £110.1m loss recorded in the first quarter of 2020. Overall, it looks like the business achieved some pretty decent results, I feel. So why did the Aston Martin share price stay basically flat on the news?The risks that lie aheadOverall, the management team remains confident in its ability to sell a total of 6,000 cars in 2021. And after these latest results, it’s 23% of the way there. While this may seem slightly behind, it’s worth noting that Aston Martin is launching two new models, the Valkyrie and V12 Speedster, in the second half of this year.However, there remains some reasonable concern surrounding the firm’s level of debt. As of the end of March, Aston Martin has just under £1.3bn of debt to contend with. That’s around 63% of the firm’s capital structure, adding a notable level of solvency risk. After all, with large debt comes a hefty interest bill estimated to be around £145m for this year.This is still a manageable amount, especially since Aston Martin has £575m of cash on the balance sheet. But this source of funds is finite. And as the business is still unprofitable, it may have to raise additional capital to afford these expenses in the future.What to do now?Needless to say, I find these latest results quite encouraging as they show signs that the strategy being employed by the new management team is working. However, I think it’s still too soon to tell for sure. And given that the Aston Martin share price hardly moved on these results, it seems other investors agree.For now, this business is staying on my watch list. But I’m excited to see how it performs throughout 2021. The Aston Martin (LSE:AML) share price has had a rough couple of years. And the pandemic certainly didn’t help matters. After burning through its cash reserves and reporting increasing losses, the company has seen its stock drop by more than 80% since its 2018 IPO.But recently, the share price has been back on the rise. And over the last 12 months, it’s up by more than 180%! Is the business making a comeback?

John Pardey Architects sent us this great second house on the village of Burley, England. The concept was based on the idea of creating a building that respects the nature of vernacular buildings by avoiding a single form in favour of what may be seen as an assemblage of forms, akin to the typology of farm buildings.The challenge in designing a replacement house on the outskirts of the picture-postcard forest village of Burley, within a conservation area, was to make a building of its time that integrates with the context in an honest and clear way.Save this picture!The programme for the house was divided into three functions; study/ guest accommodation; living; sleeping; interlocked around a central entrance hall. Overall, the plan defines an ‘L’ shape with its (masonry) back to the north and east and opens up to the cedar clad, south and west views. At ground floor, white painted rendered walls wrap each of the three elements and each opens up to a different horizon – two are expressed with mono-pitch roofs, whilst the third is seen as a timber box a above the wall beneath a pitched roof with glazed gable ends. A large central chimney anchors the composition and reinforces the nature of hearth and home. Save this picture!The clients, a young couple of Cambridge educated engineers with three children, gave us a very precise written brief right at the outset that stated the desire for, ‘a contemporary broadly open plan layout , but rather than one single massive space we envisage distinct areas each with their own function. These should feel at the same time both separate and linked.’ Save this picture!The brief laid emphasis on the kitchen and dining space as central to family life, so we made this dramatic by using a double height space (once a traditional device in the country house) ; we attempted to make the kitchen as un-kitchen-like as possible, by use of simple oak faced cabinet doors and matt grey basalt worktops that cloak the usual paraphernalia (only the purpose designed stainless steel sink signals its function). This space connects to one side to the stone floored, top-l it entrance hall (formal dining and piano) and to the other, to a fairly snug sitting room that faces an open fireplace. The fireplace rises up through the double height space and supports a cantilevered staircase that serves a smal l balcony (a modest library and reading bench) and the master bedroom that has commanding views across the small valley and stream to the rear of the house through a large f ixed glass wall, with cedar ventilation panels to one side. Save this picture!A Juliet balcony, with oak shutters, opens into the kitchen space below and allows the parents too keep an ear out for the children. The bedroom contains only an oak-made double bed we designed, with a cantilevered foot that acts as a seat to the view. Save this picture!Children’s bedrooms are tall, wedge-shaped rooms that use the mono-pitch form to allow the rising sun in through a slit window at high level above a storage area that straddles the passageway and wardrobes. Large fixed window panels have cedar boarded stable-door panels to one side in each room. The study and guest room are l inked by an orange coloured wall and doorway, to act as a small suite; the study can be entered independently from the entrance lobby and contains a spiral wine cellar beneath the floor. Save this picture!The family bathroom at the end of the house doubles up as a laundry room; a low window allows views of the animals in the fields beyond whilst enjoying a warm bath.

Implementation of the Farm Bill Will Take Time

first_img SHARE Roger Bernard of Informa Economics says it won’t be easy to implement the Agricultural Act of 2014. In fact – he believes April would be the very earliest farmers would be able to sign up for programs for the current crop year. He says it’s a far-reaching piece of legislation that will take time to implement. Bernard notes USDA will have to develop software programs and train personnel in county offices to run those programs, write the regulations and push those through an approval process and ultimately educate farmers so they understand their options. Bernard addressed cattlemen at the 2014 Cattle Industry Convention in Nashville.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Implementation of the Farm Bill Will Take Time Previous articleMore Farmer Options with New Farm BillNext articleSmithfield’s Renewable Energy Commitment Tangible Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Implementation of the Farm Bill Will Take Time SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 5, 2014 last_img read more

One-year prison sentence for libel passed on newspaper editor already in prison

first_img Reporters Without Borders today deplored a sentence of one year in prison and a fine of 10,000 dirhams (about 900 euros) imposed on journalist Anas Tadili by the Rabat appeal court on 29 September for allegedly libelling economy minister Fathallah Oualalou.The editor of the weekly Akhbar al-Ousbouaâ, Tadili is already in Kénistra prison (north of Rabat) serving a six-month prison sentence for a common-law offence. His family and his lawyer say he is being held in the wing reserved for those who have received the death penalty.”We roundly condemn the application of prison sentences in libel cases and we call on the Moroccan authorities to amend the criminal code in order to eliminate jail sentences for press offences,” Reporters Without Borders said.The organisation pointed out that the United Nations calls on all governments “to ensure that press crimes are no longer subject to prison sentences except for crimes such as racist or discriminatory comments or appeals for violence.”Journalists may be sanctioned in other ways that show more respect to press freedom, such as a fine or payment of damages to those who have been defamed, Reporters Without Borders said, adding: “In Tadili’s case, such a long prison sentence and incarceration in a high security prison seem out of all proportion to the offence.”Tadili has been convicted for reporting in a 9 April article headlined “Homosexuality and the political class in Morocco” that police surprised a government minister in a homosexual act in a beach resort in the north of the country. He did not name the minister, but it was clear he was alluding to the economy minister.”Even if calling someone a homosexual is very serious in Muslim culture, there is no justification for a one-year prison sentence,” Tadili’s lawyer told Reporters Without Borders. “I think what counted for the court was the fact that Mr. Oualalou is a government minister and was a teacher at the Royal College,” he added.Six days after the article came out, Tadili was suddenly put in prison, supposedly in connection with a 10-year-old common-law case. A detention order was issued because he was unable to immediately pay a fine of 3 million dirhams (about 270,000 euros).The economy minister meanwhile asked Prime Minister Driss Jettou to bring a libel action on his behalf. In Morocco, the head of government has the power to bring such actions when ministers consider they have been defamed.The six-month sentence was passed on Tadili on 1 June. About 10 other complaints have been brought against him and are currently been investigated by the judicial authorities.

Blogger gets 30-months in prison on trumped-up tax evasion charge

first_img News Receive email alerts Quan, 41, was arrested in December 2012, one day after posting an article criticizing article 4 of the constitution, which assigns the Communist Party a leading role in managing the country’s affairs.Although charged with tax evasion, it was clear that the real reason for his arrest was his blogging and his calls for political pluralism, religious freedom and civil rights. His trial was originally scheduled to take place on 9 July, but was postponed at the last minute.Similar tax evasion charges were brought in 2008 against Nguyen Van Hai, a dissident who blogged under the pseudonym of Dieu Cay. He was given an initial sentence of 30 months in prison but, before he was due to be released, he was given an additional 12-year jail sentence on a charge of anti-government propaganda.Vietnam is ranked 172nd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and figures in the 2013 “Enemies of the Internet” special report on surveillance.During a visit to Paris last week, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung refused to meet with Reporters Without Borders, which wanted to hand him a petition for the release of 35 Vietnamese bloggers that has been signed by 25,000 people.Support independent news providers in Vietnam by signing the petition here.Read the latest report on Vietnam entitled “Programmed death of freedom of information” here.

The court also ordered the seizure of Quan’s assets, worth 27,000 dollars.“This clearly politically-motivated sentence is designed to gag and punish a dissident and is part of a strategy orchestrated by the Communist Party to persecute all independent news and information providers in Vietnam,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We deplore the way this trial was conducted, including the fact that the defendant’s relatives were not allowed into the courtroom and the way the authorities again manipulated the media. Quan is the victim of a judicial system that takes its orders from authoritarian party officials. He must be released.”Insisting on his innocence, Quan said he was the victim of political decisions. “I will continue my fight against corruption, attacking bureaucracy and stagnancy that are undermining our country,” he told an Agence France-Presse reporter who was allowed to follow the trial from a room adjoining the courtroom.Neither his brother, Le Quoc Quyet, nor his sister was allowed into the courtroom, while foreign news agency reporters were ordered not to bring any recording equipment into the courthouse.The trial prompted unprecedented demonstrations. Many activists and ordinary citizens gathered in Hanoi to show their support for Quan and protest against the persecution of bloggers, with demonstrators managing to block traffic on one of the capital’s main arteries.Large numbers of police were deployed to prevent protesters from getting to the courthouse. A bus taking members of Quan’s family to Hanoi was intercepted by police, who searched their bags and then sent them home. In Hanoi, the authorities prevented two bloggers, Phuong Bich and Nguyen Huu Vinh, and the dissident Pham Hong Son from leaving their homes.

The F.I.R. was lodged for the offences punishable under Sections 363 [kidnapping], 366 [kidnapping woman for compelling marriage] and 376(2)(n)[repeated rape on same woman] of the Indian Penal Code and under Sections 4, 5(1) [sexual assault on child by on duty police officer] and 6(1) of POCSO Act, 2012. Justice Ashokkumar C. Joshi noted that the Supreme Court in Narender Singh & Others vs. State of Punjab and Another (2014) 6 SCC 466 has observed that heinous and serious offences of mental depravity or offences like murder, rape, dacoity, etc. cannot be fittingly quashed even though the victim or victim’s family and the offender have settled the dispute. The Court also referred to the landmark decisions of Supreme Court in case of Parbatbhai Aahir vs. State of Gujarat 2017 SCC online SC 1189 and in case of State of Madhya Pradesh vs. Laxmi Narayan and Others (2019) 5 SCC 688, which reiterate the same principle. However, the Judge declared that “Therefore, with respect, latest law is not applicable to the present case.”The Judge opined that normally, the Court would not entertain the quashing petition in serious offences like offences under Sections 376 and 302 of the IPC. However, the Court then stated that in the present case, when the settlement is arrived at between the applicant-accused and the complainant, and the applicant-accused and victim both have married with each other, therefore, the Court is inclined to entertain the petition. “Further, there is amicable settlement arrived at between the complainant and the accused person by way of an affidavit and also the applicant and the victim have been entered into marriage life, it would be futile exercise if the trial shall take place and the purpose of the judicial process would not be served and therefore in humble view of this Court, it would be just and proper to quash the aforesaid FIR.”Justice Joshi expressed his view. In passing the order for quashing the FIR, the bench took note of the complainant’s affidavit averring that “in the present case, the impugned FIR was lodged in hot haste”, but “with intervention of relatives and common friends full and final amicable settlement has taken place between the complainant and the accused and victim girl and accused got married dated 07.07.2020″Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Operation Shoebox in full swing

Franklin Graham is the president. The effort has hand-delivered 86 million gifts to children in 100 countries since 1993 By The Penny Hoarder “The larger boxes will hold enough items to fill two regular boxes,” she said. “So, it would be better to fill two smaller boxes than one large one because two children could have Christmas instead of one.”Adams said that restricted items for the shoeboxes are soldiers, toy tanks or anything else war related and anything liquid.“Toilet items such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste and bath cloths are always good,” she said. “Socks are and T-shirts are needed items and toys, hard candy and school supplies are things that the children enjoy.”Children all around the world receive the Christmas gift shoeboxes so Adams said the boxes are checked every carefully at the Atlanta processing center before they are shipped. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 7:58 am Thursday, November 17, 2011 Skip Christmas is a month after Thanksgiving but shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child must be wrapped and ready no later than Sunday.Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind. Each year, the Salem-Troy Baptist Association serves as a Relay Center where thousands of gift-filled shoeboxes are collected to be sent to children around the world whose only Christmas will be what’s in those shoeboxes.Linda Adams, Salem-Troy Baptist Association’s interim director, said 3,000 shoeboxes were donated by people in Pike County and the surrounding areas last year. By Jaine Treadwell “People are very generous and Operation Christmas Child has become a tradition for a lot of people in our area,” Adams said. “We have already received a lot of shoeboxes and expect many more before the deadline on Sunday.”The Salem-Troy Baptist Association is the Relay Center for the Pike County area and will accept shoeboxes from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. today and Friday and from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday and from 2 until 4 p.m. on Sunday.Adams said plastic boxes may be packed instead of shoeboxes, however, she suggested that the smaller plastic boxes be used.
