Merlin, New Look and Travelport couldn’t even get away; those that did, such as Ocado and Promethean, haven’t lived up to expectations. One of the flotations that stands out from the crowd is Supergroup, which appears to be living up to its boastful brand name. Shares have more than doubled since the firm went public, while sales have done better still. In its most recent update, covering the period to 1 August, sales grew by 60 per cent. Since then, the trend has accelerated, with sales in the three months to the end of October up by 68 per cent. Valuing such a fast-growing retailer is tricky, and investors should urge caution where hype is involved. Supergroup currently trades on 23 times calendar earnings in 2011, far more than the wider retail sector (12.6 times). Bulls point out that ASOS trades on over 40 times 2011 earnings, although the online-only retailer has a completely different business model. No one can deny Supergroup’s meteoric rise, but it is already priced in. Share Supergroup

In their heyday they were the world’s busiest docks, A century later, they are eerily quiet. The Royal Victoria, Royal Albert and King George V Docks are just to the east of the glittering towers of Canary Wharf. But with exceptions such as the ExCeL international convention centre, they are remarkably undeveloped. It is a beautiful location with large expanses of water, is connected to the DLR and will be connected to Crossrail. The brownfield land around is an “opportunity”, which investors are starting to realise.So the creation of a new Enterprise Zone around the Royal Docks – the direct result of lobbying by the Mayor, and announced in the budget – is a real opportunity to boost growth and jobs in East London. The business rates relief given to companies that set up there, and the range of other incentives, will help unlock the potential of the area, and return it to its former position as a thriving place. The transformation could prove as dramatic as that achieved by the last enterprise zone in the area, which twenty years ago ensured that towers rose out of the industrial wasteland that was Canary Wharf.Overall, the Budget will boost what London specialises in: economic growth. Other measures will show the rest of the world that London is open to business, and help reduce the burdens on Londoners.The cut in corporation tax and commitment to having the most competitive tax regime in the G20 will be a particular benefit to a city that depends so much on inward investment, and on global firms deciding it is a good place to do business. It will reduce the lure of other lower tax jurisdictions for companies.The chancellor’s commitment that the 50p income tax band will only be temporary will answer concerns that we are becoming less internationally competitive.Anthony Browne is an adviser to the Mayor of London Enterprise Zone a Royal opportunity Tags: NULL whatsapp

It’s not just Harlequins’ men’s team that have a teenage No 10 – find out more about the women’s playmaker Ellie Green When did you link up with Harlequins? I’d done a few camps when I was younger and I was registered after my 17th birthday (you have to be at least 17 to play in the Premier 15s). I played my first game off the bench at Darlington Mowden Park in February. The first couple of tackles were a bit of a shock to the system!How did you find touring with England U20 this summer? It was an amazing experience, especially being so young in that environment. We had a buddy system and Zoe Harrison taught me so much. She’s been through the U20 set-up and is now a proper Red Rose, so it was really helpful.Who’s been the biggest influence on your career? I’d say my dad and my brother. My dad, Graham, from a coaching perspective and my brother, Harry, who had to quit rugby through illness and is very inspirational to me.What are your goals for this season? To keep playing in the Premier 15s and pushing forward with my development. I’m still young and have so much more to experience, in U20s and Premier 15s, so I want to learn off everyone.RW VERDICT: Quins’ men’s and women’s teams are both favouring teenage fly-halves, and Green, who is studying for A Levels in maths, biology and PE, will benefit long term from bossing around internationals each weekend. Harlequins and England U20 fly-half Ellie Green Date of Birth 21 Jan 2001 Born Epsom, Surrey Club Harlequins Country England Position Fly-halfHow did you get involved in rugby? I have an older brother and sister, and they played from a very young age, and my dad was coach, so it was a rite of passage for me. I started at Sutton & Epsom.Have you always been a ten? I started in the forwards as a second-row and No 8 when I played mixed rugby. Then when I got into U13 girls, I realised I could kick quite well so I moved to fly-half.I had to move to Beccehamians as that was the nearest girls’ set-up that had a full team and played regular matches.Did you play other sports?I played hockey at school and for Surrey U15. It was a toss-up between hockey and rugby, but I realised rugby was the best sport for me. I like the family feel of rugby and when you’re on the pitch you have to rely on other people.Who were your childhood heroes? When I was 13 I went to the (Women’s) World Cup final in France and watching England win I thought, ‘This is where I want to be in ten years’.It’s great to play with some of those players and against some of them now in the Premier 15s.

Publisher’s Note: While it’s not often to see a Florida Panther north of Lake Okeechobee, you may glimpse a coyote or bobcat and wonder what crossed your path. If you are so lucky to see any one of these beautiful Florida creatures, this guide will help you know the difference.By Diane J. Episcopio, Elizabeth F. Pienaar, and Martin B. MainThe Florida panther is a subspecies of puma, also known as cougars and mountain lions, and is listed as an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act. Scientists estimate that there are between 120 and 230 panthers in Florida. Today, the range of the Florida panther is largely restricted to Florida, with the highest concentration of panthers occurring south of Lake Okeechobee, though they have been documented throughout the peninsula and even into Georgia.Identifying a Florida PantherPanthers can sometimes be confused with bobcats, dogs, and coyotes. Below are some photos to help you determine whether you have seen a panther versus the other animals.Body Figure 1. Florida panther.Figure 2. BobcatPanthers are 3 to 4 times larger than bobcats. On average, an adult male panther weighs 130 pounds and an adult female panther weighs 80 pounds. Panthers stand about thigh-high to an adult human. Bobcats rarely exceed 35 pounds and will only be about knee high or less to a person. Adult panthers are tan (Figure 1). Panther cubs under one year old are similar in color to adults but have spots on their fur. In contrast, bobcats have a red tinge to their fur. Their bellies tend to be white, and they have a spotted pattern on their fur even when they’re adults (Figure 2). A very distinct difference between panthers and bobcats is the shape of their tails. A panther’s tail is as long as its body and nearly touches the ground. By contrast, a bobcat’s tail is shorter than the length of its body and often curls upward at the end, exposing a white underside that panthers do not have.Figure 3a. CoyoteFigure 3b. CoyoteWhile coyotes are a part of the canid (dog) family, they can still be confused with the Florida panther. They are more similar in size to bobcats, weighing between 20 to 35 pounds. Coyotes tend to have grey fur, with patches of tan or brown (Figure 3a and 3b). The coyote has a longer, more slender face compared to the Florida panther, and a medium length bushy tail.EarsIf you only catch a glimpse of the animal from behind, a good way to differentiate between a panther, a bobcat, and a coyote is by looking at the shape and color of the ears. The back of a panther ear is black (Figure 4), while bobcats have distinct white spots on the back of the ear (Figure 5). The fur on the back of a coyote ear closely matches the rest of its coat (Figure 6).Figure 4. Panther earsFigure 5. Bobcat earsFigure 6. Coyote earsTracksOne of the most reliable ways of identifying the presence of a panther is by looking at tracks left by the animal. The front paws of an adult panther leave tracks that generally measure 3 inches in length by 3 inches in width. The hind paws leave tracks that are slightly smaller. Both adult and juvenile panthers leave larger tracks than bobcats. A bobcat track is approximately half the size of a panther track.Figure 7. Panther trackFigure 7 shows some defining characteristics of a panther track. Panther toes create a teardrop-shaped imprint. The arrangement of the toes is asymmetrical around the pad. Panther tracks (Figure 8) are most commonly confused with the tracks of dogs and coyotes (Figures 9 and 10). Panthers have retractable claws while dogs and coyotes do not. As a result, dog and coyote tracks typically include the imprints of claws, whereas panther prints usually do not have claw marks. The presence of claw marks for panther prints depends on what surface the animal was crossing and whether the animal was running at the time.Figure 8. Panther trackFigure 9. Dog trackFigure 10. Coyote trackThe pads of dogs and coyotes tend to be triangular in shape, whereas panthers have a trapezoidal shaped pad. Another key feature of a panther’s track are the 3 distinct lobes at the base of the pad.What to Do if You Have Seen a PantherIf you see a live panther, there is no need to contact either the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) or the US Fish and Wildlife Service. However, in the event that you identify a dead or injured panther, please contact the FWC at 1-888-404-3922.Pictures of panthers or tracks can be submitted to the following website: https://public.myfwc.com/hsc/panthersightings/Default.aspxFor more information about living with panthers see: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/uw399For additional information visit http://myfwc.com/pantherFootnotes1.

On the site are cherry blossom trees, planted in the area by the hands of pioneers after the World War II. Cherry blossom trees were said to house the spirit of farmlands and have long been regarded as sacred. Of the four distinctive seasons in the area, the blooming cherry blossoms bring a touch of spring, serving as a sign for the farmers to start on the fields.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaOur client, residing in the central Tokyo for work, wishes to live in a slow and comfortable time frame surrounded by the cherry blossoms, the scenery of Mt. Kaikomagatake in the west, and Mt. Yatsugatake in the north.Save this picture!Floor PlanWe knew what we needed to do: keep the roots and branches of the cherry blossom trees of the premise in good condition, take in the best view of the mountains that can be easily blocked by an inch of movement, and pay extra attention to the direction of taking in the wind and sunlight coming from the south. The premise is of a perfect scenic beauty, except for the look of a neighbor’s house behind the row of cherry blossoms in the south.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaConsidering these aspects, we designed a bungalow-style home that naturally fits on the long premise in the east-west direction. Within it, we created a few spots where the scenery visually breaks into the house in a sequence.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaBlack-painted paulownia wood is used for the long and flat floor; the walls and ceilings are wattle and daub. These materials have added shadows to a quiet space as if to represent a deep story while the functional openings and three decks placed along are there to provide visual effects. This bungalow-style weekend home appreciates a touch of every season and its different scenery in a full of green, with abundance of pale pink cherry blossoms in spring to bring the visual and sensual grace to life.Save this picture!© Ippei ShinzawaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Bibliothèque du Boisé / Consortium Labonté Marcil, Cardinal Hardy, Eric Pelletie…Selected ProjectsU.

February 23, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Bush asked to raise Russia’s press freedom violations at meeting with Putin in Bratislava News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation May 28, 2021 Find out more RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News On the eve of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Slovakian capital of Bratislava,Reporters Without Borders has written to US President George W. Bush to voice its concerns about press freedomin Russia since Putin arrived in the Kremlin.Version russe News Receive email alerts Version russeReporters Without Borders called on US President George W. Bush today to raised the issue of press freedom at his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow in Bratislava, in particular “the Russian government’s growing control of the news media and the increasing use of violence and harassment against journalists.”The Paris-based organization said in a letter to President Bush: “No fewer than 17 journalists were physically attacked and three were threatened because of their work in 2004 alone. Violence against journalists constitutes the biggest threat to press freedom in Russia.”We are particularly worried about the condition of Sergei Lubimov, a journalist with the regional weekly Bogatei, who was brutally attacked on 19 February outside his home in the southern city of Saratov by two thugs who broke both of his legs,” the letter continued. “Alexandre Krutov of the same newspaper was badly beaten by three persons outside his home in Saratov in March 2003 as he was finishing a report likely to embarrass the local prosecutor’s office. It is unacceptable that this kind of behaviour towards journalists who are just doing their job goes unpunished.”Several journalists have been murdered in recent years, including Paul Khlebnikov, a US citizen and editor of the Russian version of the magazine Forbes, who was gunned down as he left his office on 9 July 2004. His murder has still not been solved,” the letter said.Reporters Without Borders said it “still hopes for concrete progress” in the investigation into the murder of Alexei Sidorov. “Aged 31, this journalist was stabbed by two men in the parking lot of his apartment building in the city of Togliatti on 9 October 2003 and died moments later in his wife’s arms. He had taken over as his newspaper’s editor from Valery Ivanov, a journalist who was murdered in similar circumstances on 29 April 2002. We are also still without news of Ali Astamirov, the Agence France-Presse correspondent in Ingushetia, who was kidnapped on 4 July 2003.”The press freedom organization said it also considered that, “the Russian information ministry’s instructions on 11 January 2005 to a number of local newspapers in the Moscow, Noginsk and Pskov regions constitute a dangerous precedent for press. These directives ordered journalists not to refer to the demonstrations by tens of thousands of retired and disabled persons that began on 10 January.”Finally, Reporters Without Borders said the anti-terrorism bill that passed its first reading in the Duma on 17 December 2004 would curtail press freedom even more in Russia. “By defining ‘areas of anti-terrorist operations,’ the restrictions on access to information already applied in certain regions are being extended by the authorities to the entire country. “The obstacles to press freedom make it impossible, for example, to cover the war in Chechnya. The many human rights violations in this no-go area are for the most part unknown to the public and, as a result, have little chance of ending. Reporters Without Borders has every reason to believe that the obstacles to press coverage of events such as the Beslan tragedy in September 2004 could increase dangerously as soon as the law takes effect.” RSF_en Follow the news on Belarus June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further News Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says May 27, 2021 Find out more
