BoE Inflation Report set to widen debate

first_imgSunday 7 November 2010 8:08 pm BoE Inflation Report set to widen debate KCS-content Tags: NULL THE Bank of England’s quarterly Inflation Report will be scrutinised particularly closely by the market for clues to the future direction of British monetary policy when it is published on Wednesday. The three-way split among the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) members has created growing uncertainty about the timing and future direction of changes to interest rates and quantitative easing. There is still a widespread expectation that a further loosening in UK monetary policy is likely, if not imminent.IHS Global Insight’s Howard Archer expects the Bank of England to raise both its near-term growth and inflation forecasts but to keep its forecasts further out unchanged. City economists also expect the central bank to leave the door open for further quantitative easing. “I expect the Inflation Report to leave the door open to renewed quantitative easing should growth falter markedly over the coming months,” added Archer.However, it is unlikely that the Bank will signal that further QE will be introduced in the very near-term, with many predicting February as a likely month. “The MPC is not in a position to signal next week that a QE extension is imminent, simply because it is not,” explains Barclays Capital’s Simon Hayes.“The November Inflation Report is expected to bear a close resemblance to that in August, perhaps indicating a small bias to loosen but with the main stress being on the heightened uncertainty surrounding the outlook,” Hayes added. The result could be that the next move in monetary policy could be in either direction.The Inflation Report may also give some clues as to whether one or more of the seven committee members that has sat on the fence until now decided to join either Andrew Sentance or Adam Posen this month.

Diageo hit as sales slow down in Europe

first_img SHARES in drinks giant Diageo dropped yesterday after the company said that European sales were weakening and that it was pinning its growth hopes on middle class drinkers in emerging markets.The company said like-for-like sales in the six months to 31 December rose four per cent to £5.3bn.Operating profit increased two per cent to £1.7bn, but fell short of the five per cent forecast by analysts.Diageo, which has brands including Guinness and Johnnie Walker, said European sales had been dragged down by the economic crisis in Spain and Greece where consumers’ spending power has been hit. Net sales fell by 38 per cent in Greece, where excise tax rises also took their toll.However, the company said emerging markets were driving growth with beer in Africa and scotch in Asia proving popular – particularly with middle class customers. Despite shares dropping by around four per cent after the half yearly results, chief executive Paul Walsh said the company was performing well and was hiking the interim dividend. “Emerging market sales in scotch have been very strong. “Middle class customers in these are on the rise. Our super-premium ranges are very popular.“There have been problems in Europe and consumers have been hit in Spain, but particularly Greece.”But Russia and East Europe saw net sales up 20 per cent, driven by spirits.In the UK net sales grew by one per cent, with sales of wine like Blossom Hill up at the expense of beer. North American sales were solid, with Canada the star performer. Net sales rose seven per cent to £1.8bn across the region. Johnnie Walker contributed more than a third of all Diageo’s sales growth over the period.Total group marketing spending in the half increasing 12 per cent to £813m. Meanwhile Walsh said that Diageo would continue to be based in the UK for the time being as the coalition’s corporate and personal tax plans would not be detrimental to the business. “We do not feel compelled to be talking about leaving,” he said. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Diageo hit as sales slow down in Europe whatsapp Share 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 ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut Thursday 10 February 2011 8:33 pmlast_img read more

Dining Do’s and Don’ts: 4 Tips To Make Healthier and Tasty…

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Focus on your healthFrom Florida Hospital Apopka Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Italian — Order a whole-grain crust pizza topped with cheese and lots of vegetables. Avoid “double cheese,” sausage or pepperoni. If you crave pasta, stick with tomato-based sauce instead of cream sauce. Have your spaghetti as a side dish (one cup) alongside salad and chicken, rather than as a main entrée, which can be several cups.Chinese — Vegetables are a mainstay of Chinese food, with greens such as bok choy, gai lan and broccoli taking a front seat. Replace some of your noodles or rice with extra vegetables. Opt for stir-fried dishes rather than deep-fried options such as egg rolls or breaded chicken. Get high-sodium black bean or soy sauce served on the side, and use them sparingly.Indian — Enjoying Indian food is a tasty way to eat more fiber-rich beans. Opt for dal (spiced lentils, peas or beans) made without too much oil, or try chickpea curry. Tandoori meats are a delicious and lean choice. Limit dishes made with lots of oil, ghee or coconut milk (the calories add up quickly), and rely on flavor from spices instead. Order dishes with gobi (cauliflower) or palak (spinach).Greek — Grilled meat and chicken are lean, but they’re usually served with potatoes AND rice. Replace one of them with vegetables. Go easy on the salty dips such as taramosalata. Start with a cucumber and tomato salad instead.Most menus are filled with refined grains. Always choose whole-grain options when available. If refined grains are the only choice, keep the serving size small. And since restaurant portions are oversized, get in the habit of saving half for later or share.  Have you ever gone to a restaurant intending to eat something healthy, only to have your plans quickly derailed? We spoke with Sherri Flynt, registered/licensed dietitian at Florida Hospital, about what you can do to stay on track while dining. She offers a guide to four common nutritional traps — a flood of fat, carb overload, deep-fried dangers and bloated portions — in four popular cuisines so you can make smart choices while savoring every bite.

With mixed record on freedom of information, President Ouattara visits Paris

first_img Organisation Receive email alerts RSF_en RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections July 25, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 With mixed record on freedom of information, President Ouattara visits Paris News News Côte d’IvoireAfrica Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire News Help by sharing this information center_img Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa November 27, 2020 Find out more October 16, 2020 Find out more Reports On the eve of the first meeting between Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara and French President François Hollande in Paris, Reporters Without Borders urges Côte d’Ivoire’s government to press ahead with its efforts to improve media freedom, including measures to encourage the emergence of privately-owned broadcast media.“The Côte d’Ivoire media environment has gradually improved in the 16 months since Ouattara became president in chaotic circumstances, at a time when the media were unable to function properly,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But major challenges still need addressing. They include ending the detention of journalists, guaranteeing their freedom, promoting reconciliation within the media and opening up broadcasting to the private sector.“We urge Hollande not to evade the issue of freedom of information, which is essential to improving the situation in Côte d’Ivoire, and we hope that his talks with Ouattara will be frank and will regard no subject as off-limits. It would be incomprehensible if Hollande fails to raise the issue of Guy-André Kieffer, a French journalist who was kidnapped in Abidjan eight years ago. The investigation has made little progress since the change of government.”Improving climate but challenges yet to be addressedWithin the print media, the so-called “blue” newspapers – those that supported former President Laurent Gbagbo, such as Notre Voie, Le Temps and Le Nouveau Courrier – are nowadays free to express their opinions without major problems. The emergence of new publications, both pro-government and pro-opposition ones, is expected in the coming weeks. President Ouattara issued a decree on 23 May naming the journalist Raphael Oré Lakpé as president of the National Press Council (CNP), a body that regulates the print media.The thorny issue of Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI) remains. The government of the day has always used this state-owned radio and TV broadcaster as a propaganda tool. Its ability to influence public opinion is enhanced by its near monopoly. RTI 1 and RTI 2 are the country’s only two national TV stations.The new government wants to introduce commercial broadcasting in order to promote diversity. The task has been assigned to former communication minister Ibrahim Sy Savané, who heads the newly-created High Authority for Broadcasting Communication (HACA). A commission with the job of organizing invitations to bid for radio and TV frequencies was sworn in on 20 July at the communication ministry. The creation of the first privately-owned TV stations is expected by the end of the year.Difficult first year, several journalists arrestedHowever, Ouattara’s first year in power, 2011, will be remembered for RTI journalist Hermann Aboa’s detention for five months. It was especially strange and unjust because Côte d’Ivoire’s 2004 media law protects journalists from imprisonment. The former host of the RTI programme “Reasons of State,” Aboa still faces several charges but is currently on conditional release.César Etou, the editor of the daily Notre Voie, and two of his journalists, Didier Dépry and Boga Sivori, spent 13 days in detention at the end of 2011, shortly before parliamentary elections. Prior to their arrest, their newspaper was occupied for months by the pro-Ouattara Republican Forces of Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI).In an address to the media at the end of January 2012, the president was very open and reaffirmed his determination to respect freedom of information. But a few days later, Charles Sanga, the editor of the daily Le Patriote, spent 24 hours at the Directorate for Territorial Surveillance (DST), an intelligence agency, being interrogated and pressured to reveal his sources for a story.Recent incidents, recurring problemsOusmane Sy Savané, the head of Cyclone, a company that publishes the opposition newspapers Le Temps and Lg Infos and the arts and culture review Prestige Magazine, was arrested by the DST on 27 March and has been held ever since in Abidjan’s main prison, the MACA, on a charge of endangering state security.The authorities have yet to produce hard evidence of any involvement by Savané in activities aimed at destabilizing the country and everything suggests that he is being held because of his close association with Nady Bamba, Cyclone’s former sponsor and former President Gbagbo’s second wife. If this is the case, he must be released.Sounkalo Coulibaly, a lawyer who represents Ouattara’s party, the Rally of the Republicans (RDR), stormed into the offices of the news website Koaci.com accompanied by four gunmen on 19 July and arrested the journalist Souleymane Koné for allegedly defaming him in an article about problems at the Abidjan Collective Taxi Insurance Company (MATCA).Koné was dragged off to the gendarmerie security department in the Abidjan district of Plateau, where he was handcuffed to a steel bar from 7 to 11 p.m. and pressured to reveal the source of his information. He was then taken to the headquarters of the criminal police and obliged to make a statement on the defamation charge before being released and allowed to go home in the early hours of the morning.Current status of the Kieffer investigationA Reporters Without Borders representative and Osange Silou-Kieffer, the wife of missing Franco-Canadian journalist Guy-André Kieffer, urged the country’s most senior officials to confirm their desire to shed light on his disappearance when they travelled together to Abidjan in April on the eighth anniversary of his abduction in Abidjan.In particular, they requested the appointment of a special commission of enquiry or a special unit to work with Patrick Ramaël, the French investigative judge handling the French investigation; reactivation of the “follow-up committee” created in 2004; and renewed interrogation of all those believed to be linked to Kieffer’s abduction, with these interrogations to be conducted in a determined manner until the mystery of Kieffer’s disappearance is solved. More informationIn response to these requests, the authorities appointed an Abidjan-Plateau district judge, Geneviève Nogo Zie-Kuibert, to pursue the investigation.Photo : Alassane Ouattara during a previous visit, in january 2012 (AFP/Thibault CAMUS) to go further October 29, 2020 Find out more Côte d’IvoireAfrica last_img read more
