Mulberry slams tax rate MULBERRY chief executive Godfrey Davis has blamed the stringent rates of tax for his refusal to open a second factory in the UK. The leader of the luxury goods retailer, famed for its handbags, said he had been put off opening a second plant to supplement Mulberry’s Somerset factory due to the impact of rising national insurance rates.“Over the past 10 years the political and economic climate has not been conducive to investing in the UK,” Davis said in an interview with Drapers magazine. Godrey called on the government to introduce “NI holidays” for manufacturers, saying an ongoing tax break would be a greater incentive than traditional golden handshakes used to attract manufacturers from overseas. Employer NI contributions are set to rise to 13.8 per cent from 12.8 per cent for those earning more than £136 a week in April. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Thursday 24 February 2011 9:05 pm KCS-content Share whatsapp Tags: NULL Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

France’s Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has confirmed Philippe Augier as the president of its board today (9 June), replacing Bertrand Méheut in the role. France’s Pari-Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has confirmed Philippe Augier as the president of its board today (9 June), replacing Bertrand Méheut in the role.Augier was confirmed in the role at PMU’s annual general meeting, with his candidacy already ratified by the Ministries of Agriculture and Food, and Public Action and Accounts.The president of France’s thoroughbred racing governing body, Edouard de Rothschild, and trotting organiser president Jean-Pierre Barjon, both supported him for the role.He has served as mayor of the commune of Deauville since 2001, and has previously held a number of roles in the racing industry, such as director general of thoroughbred auctioneer l’Agence française de vente du pur-sang between 1989 and 2006. Augier has also served on PMU’s board since 2019.He replaces former Canal+ president Méheut, who ended his tenure as PMU president in May after just over two years, in order to pursue other personal and professional projects.Cyril Linette, who joined in March 2018 having also previously worked for Canal+, will continue as chief executive of the business.PMU said Augier takes on the presidency at a crucial point in the business’ history, as it emerges from the “unprecedented” health and economic crisis caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19). With French racing suspended and its retail network shut down, the business was forced to furlough 95% of its workforce.With French horse racing resuming from 11 May, he has been tasked with helping to ensure the business can quickly rebound from the disruption caused by the pandemic.“I am honoured by the confidence that PMU stakeholders, racing’s governing bodies and the public authorities have in me,” Augier said. “The teams at PMU are of the highest quality and I look forward to working with them at a pivotal moment for the business.“I am aware of the scale of the task at hand and together, we have the will, the energy and the necessary skills to carry it out successfully.” PMU confirms Philippe Augier as new president Topics: People Sports betting Horse racing 9th June 2020 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Horse racing Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Email Address Regions: Europe Western Europe France

Please enter your email address here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply A prolonged drought could strain water supply From the St. John’s River Water Management DistrictAs hydrologic trends reflect below-average rainfall across the district, the St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board approved expanding the current Water Shortage Warning Order to include all areas within the district’s 18-county jurisdiction.“Water conservation is at the core of our mission and right now we need all hands on deck to secure our water supply during this drought,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “The prospect of prolonged drought is a reminder that we must work together. Everyone has the power to take action and help ensure we use water wisely to safeguard future supplies.” The objective of the Water Shortage Warning Order is to reduce water use and ensure enough water is available to meet demand. As a result of the order, all water users are encouraged to reduce their water use and to voluntarily conserve water to the maximum extent possible. Additionally, water used for landscape irrigation should not exceed two designated days each week and occur only before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m., as outlined in the district’s year-round watering restrictions. Outdoor irrigation accounts for half of all residential water use so it’s a logical place to focus on reducing use.Although hydrologic conditions have not yet reached the point where there is an insufficient volume of water to meet anticipated demands and protect the water resources, current conditions warrant heightened water conservation awareness in all areas within the district.A hydrological report outlining rainfall totals was presented at the May Governing Board meeting. Examples of rainfall totals and trends include:The counties with the least rainfall were Orange, Brevard, Osceola, and Okeechobee counties which each received less than one inch during May.Highest rainfalls occurred in Clay, with 3.08 inches, St. Johns, with 3.11 inches, Alachua County with 3.95 inches.Southern Duval and Baker counties also received above-average rainfall, with 2.77 inches and 3.41 inches, respectively.In April, the district enacted a burn ban for all district-owned properties due to dry conditions that are favorable to wildfire.More information about water shortage warnings can be found online at www.sjrwmd.com/facts.

News to go further Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Organisation News Receive email alerts News ————-12 juillet 2009:Taliban blow up journalist’s home in Buner valleyReporters Without Borders is extremely worried by Taliban reprisals against journalists in the northwestern Buner valley, where about 60 masked gunmen identifying themselves as Taliban blew up the home of radio journalist Rehman Buneri in the village of Poland on 9 July, three days after he made allegedly “anti-Taliban” comments on the air.“This Taliban attack was cowardly and unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge Taliban fighters to stop taking reprisals against journalists, who are often the victims of physical attacks and intimidation. We also ask the Pakistani government to guarantee the safety of journalists by reaffirming its military presence in the region.”The gunmen told Buneri’s father: “We have orders to blow up the house because of your son’s criticism of the Taliban.” Based in Karachi, Buneri works for Voice of America’s Pashto-language Deeva Radio. He is also privately-owned Khyber TV’s Karachi bureau chief.“My father said the Taliban arrived at about 2 a.m.,” Buneri told Reporters Without Borders. “They began by reading out loud the charges against me. Then they evacuated all of the members of my family and put explosives around the house.” He added that he had previously received threatening phone calls from an unknown number.The village of Poland is just 15 km from an army-controlled area. The incident took place just a few hours before the government announced that the Taliban had been ousted from the Buner valley and the nearby Swat valley and that the displaced population could begin returning on 13 July.

The house belonged to Behroz Khan, who works for Geo TV in Peshawar.“The militants looted the house, spent several nights in it and finally torched it on 7 July,” Behroz told Reporters Without Borders today.At a joint press conference yesterday, Khyber Union of Journalists president Mohammad Riaz and Peshawar Press Club president Shamim Shahid urged the government to protect journalists from Taliban attacks. “The authorities must take measure to protect journalists, so that they can have confidence in the Pakistani government again, Riaz said.After two months of fierce fighting between the army and the Taliban, the plight of journalists continues to worsen in the Buner valley, where they are being targeted by both sides. A few days before Khan’s house was torched by the Taliban, the army deliberately set fire to a forest he owns, claiming the Taliban were using it as a refuge. Its destruction represents a major financial loss for the reporter.The Buner valley home of radio journalist Rehman Buneri was also destroyed last week by masked gunmen identifying themselves as Taliban.

RSF_en Another Voix de Djibouti reporter arrested in Djibouti City DjiboutiAfrica Follow the news on Djibouti Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders regards the jail sentence and heavy fine passed yesterday on news website employee Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh as typical of the way the government hounds critics, including journalists, media employees, social networkers and opposition activists.The prosecutors had nothing on Okieh, who handles the technical aspects of the La Voix de Djibouti website and is in charge of media relations for the National Salvation Union (USN), a coalition of opposition parties. All he did was post images online that embarrassed the police and, by extension, the government.A Djibouti court yesterday sentenced Okieh to 45 days in prison and a fine of 200,000 Djibouti francs (860 euros) for posting photos on his Facebook page of police breaking up an opposition demonstration. It also ordered him to pay 2 million francs (8,600 euros) in damages. December 9, 2020 Find out more News DjiboutiAfrica July 17, 2020 Find out more News Organisation News ——-27.05.2013 – La Voix de Djibouti journalist held for past two weeks over Facebook photosReporters Without Borders calls for the release of Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh, a technician responsible for the news website La Voix de Djibouti, who has been detained since 15 May.Okieh is due to appear in court tomorrow on charges of “insulting a police officer” and “defaming the police.” “The charges against Okieh are baseless,” Reporters Without Borders said. “There is nothing in the prosecution file. All he did was post photos of the police using excessive force to disperse a peaceful demonstration. His arrest is a sign of the regime’s paranoia. We call for the journalist’s immediate release and the withdrawal of all the charges held against him.”Arrested at his Djibouti home, Okieh spent four days in police custody before being transferred to Gabode prison under a court detention order. He was detained for posting photos on his Facebook page that showed police breaking up an opposition protest. The charge of “insulting a police officer” concerns Elmi Daher Miguil, also known as Elmi Gess, who heads the police station in Balbala, a suburb of the capital.When Okieh appeared before a judge for the first time on 21 May, he identified himself both as a journalist with La Voix de Djibouti and as an opposition activist.After his transfer to Gabode prison, La Voix de Djibouti posted this note on its website on 19 May: “We have learned that Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh was the victim of violence during his detention at the police criminal brigade. Maydaneh was subject to inhuman and degrading treatment of an extreme and savage nature for 48 hours.”Djibouti is ranked 167th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

It was a beautiful evening, the sun was taking its dive toward the west and a soft breeze rustled the trees. Sitting on the patio was like taking a vacation, I felt myself relaxing. But then again, it could have been the champagne I was sipping. There are four side dishes you can order with the steaks; Classic Potato Puree, Grilled Broccoli and Broccolini, Crispy House Fries, and Roasted Tricolor Cauliflower. We decided to forgo the vegetables (we after all, had tomatoes) and ordered the two potato dishes. I loved the fries, they were crispy with a fluffy center and dusted with garlic and parsley. Ketchup and a house-made ranch was included for dipping. We also ordered the potato puree with chives and horseradish, which was absolutely smooth and creamy. Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena I had never been to the Castaway so I had no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. From its beautiful interior to the vast patio, the Castaway is one nice-looking restaurant. The Castaway boasts a view from every table and looking around the restaurant I believe it. Steaks were next on our list and what a list there was to choose from. There were two American Wagyu choices, two Black Angus and a Pasture Raised, Grass-Fed choice from Tasmania. I’m not big on Wagyu so I went for the Filet from Revier Cattle Company in Minnesota. My companion decided to try the NY Strip from Tasmania. Taking its cue from the studios that Burbank is famous for, the menus are fashioned like scripts and courses have names like Prologue and Ensemble. We started our meal with the highly-recommended Cheese and Charcuterie plate. You can choose from a plate of four or seven combinations of meats and cheeses. Of course we got seven and had the chef choose. Thinly sliced Bresaola (cured and air-dried tenderloin from Italy), Culatello Di Zibello (rear leg of pig aka “little ass” from Italy), Spinata Picante (smoky and spicy chorizo salami from Italy), and Duck Prosciutto (spiced magret breast from France) where the meats we enjoyed. I liked them all but I did have a couple of favorites. The chorizo salami was killer as was the little ass. For cheeses we enjoyed the St. Andre (cow’s milk triple cream from France and the only soft cheese on the menu), Red Dragon (cow’s milk cheddar with mustard seed and Welsh brown ale from England), and Midnight Moon (hard and nutty goat’s milk cheese from Holland). Various condiments dotted the beautifully arranged plank and lightly-grilled bread completed it. My companion and I really enjoyed this assortment of salty, sweet, and smoky meats and cheeses. EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News I couldn’t resist ordering the Heirloom Tomato salad it sounded so delicious and it was. Thick slices of ripe, juicy, heirloom tomatoes where topped with a basil whipped goat cheese and roasted strawberry chia seed jam. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar and slices of fresh strawberries completed it. The salad was luscious. If you enjoy good tomatoes give it a try. With our main course we deferred to Sommelier Paul Coker. He chose a Spanish Tempranillo from the Muriel winery in Rioja Alavesa. The wine was a Gran Reserva and had an oaken beginning and a silky finish. It paired well with the hearty steak without overpowering it. Make a comment More Cool Stuff Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Now some people are purists they like their steak prepared simply with a little salt and pepper, a caramelized crust and pink interior, and that’s how the steaks were prepared. I, however live for the sauces and I was not disappointed. The steaks were served with four sauces, each one different, each one delicious. Bordelaise, deep and rich; Bearnaise, light and herbaceous; Horseradish, zesty and creamy; and Chimichurri, tart and garlicky, I tried them all, I loved them all. Even with the fantastic sauces, the steaks were the stars. Deep brown crusted, with a bit of char, the meat was buttery-tender and full of flavor. Not dry, not overdone (and I like my medium), the steaks made the meal. Don’t forget to try the shallot marmalade that is included with the steaks, it too is fantastic tasting. You’d think we’d stop there but you would be wrong. We were encouraged by our very attentive and competent server to try pastry Chef Stephan’s dessert extravaganza. Dubbed, Midnight in Paris, it is a multi-layer sensation chock-full of French pastries. From macarons filled with Madagascar vanilla bean ganache to a light pate au choux filled with maple cream and topped with candied bacon, there was something for everyone to love. Raspberry ice cream was topped with a Champagne float, a fresh fruit salad had a delicious vanilla bean simple syrup and Valrhona chocolate ganache was served in tart cup. Seriously, if you are out and about with friends and want dessert and a view, get this it will make your day!
