The rally helped the FTSE 100 to rise almost 2.3 per cent. Other supermarkets were caught up in the frenzy, with Sainsbury’s shares rising 8.5 per cent, while shares in Morrisons rose 6.5 per cent. Unfortunately, rival Marks & Spencer failed to benefit, with shares falling 4.8 per cent on news of a 14th consecutive quarter of disappointing clothing sales, despite food sales rising 0.1 per cent.Today’s figures from Tesco mark the beginning of what is likely to be another difficult year for the supermarket, with chief executive Dave Lewis admitting this morning that management is “facing the reality of the situation”. But analysts suggested all the signs are in place that it is well placed to turn over a new leaf, having trimmed the fat, including Blinkbox and Tesco Broadband, and hired Matt Davies, currently chief executive of Halfords, to run its UK arm.The supermarket also plans to close its Cheshunt HQ, moving its UK and group centres to Welwyn Garden City, as well as launching another price-cutting campaign.”Tesco has a long way to go, but Dave Lewis is pulling the business in the right direction,” said Bryan Roberts, director of retail insights at Kantar Retail.Source: Google Finance More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comlast_img read more

However that now looks more unlikely, with Ukraine’s leader Poroshenko terming Russian conditions unacceptable. He said that hope remained. Speaking to AFP Poroshenko explained: We’re in non-stop talks, as you can see, the situation is very difficult, Angela Merkel and President Francois Hollande are helping us a lot, but for now the situation is difficult.The talks have already continued for well over 12 hours in the Belarusian capital Minsk, as leaders seek to end a conflict that has cost the lives of more than 5,300 people since it began in August. Earlier this week, US President Barack Obama urged Putin to take the opportunity to make peace, and revealed, separately, that he had asked members of his administration to look into giving arms to the Ukrainian forces.  Billy Ehrenberg whatsapp Ukraine crisis: Valdimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko agree to sign joint document – reports last_img read more

Research published yesterday by Savills showed investment volumes could top €210bn (£150m) by the end of 2015, up five to 10 per cent on the €199.3bn of deals completed last year. The property advisory firm expects some €38bn will pour into Europe in the first quarter. France, Germany and the UK are expected to attract the most invest­ment after volumes jumped by 38 per cent, 28 per cent and 16 per cent respectively last year. However, Spain and Ireland saw the biggest increases of 194 per cent and 132 per cent, as Ireland’s bad bank Nama offloaded assets in inherited from the property crash. Savills’ head of European investment, Marcus Lemli, said: “The quantitative easing programme announced by the ECB, the expected devaluation of the euro against other currencies and low interest rates will all help to continue to make Europe an attractive place for real estate investment.”He said more mega deals, those over €1bn, were likely this year.

National Security Minister Lauds Successes of Anti-Lottery Task Force

first_imgRelatedNational Security Minister Lauds Successes of Anti-Lottery Task Force RelatedNational Security Minister Lauds Successes of Anti-Lottery Task Force FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail National Security Minister, Hon. Peter Bunting, and Police Commissioner, Owen Ellington, have hailed the efforts and successes of the Anti-Lottery Task Force in curtailing the illicit lottery scam, emanating out of western Jamaica. Speaking at Wednesday’s (July 18) Jamaica House/post-Sectoral Debate media briefing, at the Office of the Prime Minister, Mr. Bunting said since its establishment in January, the Task Force has been “phenomenally successful” in seizing the proceeds and assets derived from the activity, which was estimated at US$300 million in 2011.   “Scores of high end vehicles have been seized on various operations and hundreds of millions of the equivalent Jamaican dollars. This task force (has been) a tremendous success,” he declared. Commissioner Ellington, who also spoke at the briefing, disclosed that the task force has made “well over 100 arrests,” some of which he described as “significant,” since it commenced operations, adding that currently, it is “focusing on the key players.” Mr. Bunting told journalists that the lotto scam has been designated a Tier I threat to Jamaica, based on the “clear and present danger” it poses to the country. “It is doing tremendous damage to our reputation internationally. It has the potential to (negatively) impact our tourism product, and our investments, particularly in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector,” the Minister said. In this regard, Mr. Bunting said the security forces have been given a “free hand” to conduct their investigations, and make the attendant arrests, consistent with the intelligence they have garnered.  “The security forces know that no one in this society, regardless of their position or political affiliation, will get any political protection from this administration, nor should they,” the Minister declared. Commissioner Ellington attributed the task force’s successes, in part, to capabilities which were previously dedicated to the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) anti-corruption efforts. “It is our intention to focus on the top players in the lottery scam for as long as it takes to break the back of that activity. It’s been very successful and we will continue with it,” he assured. Regarding possible extradition of major players, consistent with the provisions of the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT), Mr. Ellington expressed confidence that based on recent arrests and the extent of those individuals’ involvement in the scam, coupled with the evidence that has been forthcoming, “there are clear possibilities that we could get extradition requests.” Advertisements National Security Minister Lauds Successes of Anti-Lottery Task Force National SecurityJuly 19, 2012 RelatedNational Security Minister Lauds Successes of Anti-Lottery Task Force By Douglas McIntosh, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

Anthony Hylton, noted that, currently, all Jamaican Internet traffic is routed through the United States, which “comes at an extra cost to Jamaica, its people, and businesses”.The Minister was making his contribution to the 2014/15 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives.He pointed out that this routing arrangement hinders effective local Internet development, and stymies content development by the country’s creators.The establishment of an IXP in Jamaica will keep local-bound Internet traffic within the nation’s borders, instead of routing it through expensive international links, as normally obtains in most developing countries.Mr. Hylton informed that his Ministry, the Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR), and the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy, and Mining, and other stakeholders such as Internet service providers and content developers, “are actively engaged in making the Jamaica IXP a reality”.“We need to shift from being net consumers to becoming major producers of local content, via cheaper, faster Internet services with larger band width, serving our various Internet Service and content providers,” he said.He noted that the establishment of the Jamaica IXP is even more significant as the Government moves ahead with its Global Logistics Hub initiative. This is a core plank in the administration’s economic growth strategy, and seeks to drive investment and create sustainable employment over the long term.It aims to take advantage of the anticipated increase in trade activities as a result of the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled for completion by 2015.The development of the Jamaica Logistics Hub will position the country to become the fourth node in the global logistics chain.The Minister pointed out that local businesses are now gearing up and expanding their operations in anticipation of “the explosion of international business to come”, which he described as the ‘hub effect’.He noted that this has caught on in the private sector with several telecommunications companies undertaking various investment initiatives to boost their service capabilities.“LIME has adopted the phrase ‘hub ready’ to describe their multi-billion dollar investment in a modern, world-class fibre optic network to support the Jamaica Logistics Hub Initiative,” he said, noting that the telecommunications company is investing $8.7 billion to deploy a cutting-edge 4G mobile network “in anticipation of the intense commercial demand for business solutions that will come with the hub.The Minister further noted that Digicel Business, in support of the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) needs of investors in the hub, has invested $6 billion over the past year in Jamaica’s 4G network, and is rolling out a sophisticated underground fibre network.In addition, he noted that Flow’s latest roll-out in broadband technology including cloud services, will enable rich communications solutions, and seamless movement of information across industries.

LOS ANGELES – Prosecutors say father intentionally drove boys off pier

first_imgHomeBriefsLOS ANGELES – Prosecutors say father intentionally drove boys off pier Jul. 18, 2019 at 4:40 amBriefsNewsLOS ANGELES – Prosecutors say father intentionally drove boys off piernews2 years agoAli Elmezayenlos angeles county district attorney’s officeLos Angeles pierRabab Diab A man was charged Wednesday with capital murder after prosecutors say he drove his family off a Los Angeles pier, killing his two severely autistic sons.Ali Elmezayen (EL-mah-ZION) faces two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder and there’s a special circumstance allegation that the killings were carried out for financial gain, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said.Elmezayen is in federal custody on insurance fraud charges related to the 2015 pier plunge. Prosecutors in that case said he purchased $6 million in insurance policies to cover his family in the event of an accidental death.A lawyer for Elmezayen, 44, could not be found. The murder case will proceed after the insurance fraud trial, set to begin Sept. 3, is completed. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.Investigators said Elmezayen intentionally barreled off the edge of commercial fishing dock in San Pedro with his partner and two children inside the vehicle.Elmezayen’s car window was open, and he surfaced within 30 seconds and swam to a ladder on the pier. His partner, Rabab Diab, couldn’t swim, but authorities said she was rescued by a fisherman after surfacing and screaming, “My kids, my kids.”“The poor lady was screaming hysterically,” said fisherman Ray Prince. “I thought she was going to drown.”Two boys, Abdelkarim, 8, and Elhassan, 13, couldn’t swim and were strapped in child seats. They were pulled lifeless from the car by rescue divers.Elmezayen collected more than $260,000 in insurance payouts for the deaths and wired more than $170,000 back to his native Egypt, prosecutors in the fraud case said.The district attorney initially declined to bring charges in the deaths because of insufficient evidence. A police mechanic found evidence that the brake pedal didn’t properly work, but couldn’t tell if that was the case before the tragedy or because of salt water corrosion.Prosecutors said Wednesday the charges are a result of further investigation.If convicted in the murder case, Elmezayen faces life in prison without parole, or the death penalty, although prosecutors have not decided on that possibility.Associated PressTags :Ali Elmezayenlos angeles county district attorney’s officeLos Angeles pierRabab Diabshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentLOS ANGELES – California pot regulators struggling with job, audit saysDems pan ‘Zuck buck,’ want Facebook to rein in currency planYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall8 hours agoBriefsLos Angeles Sheriff’s deputy accused of destroying evidence of 2019 assaultAssociated Press11 hours agoBriefsCalifornia State Treasurer Fiona Ma to Speak at Online Santa Monica College Commencement Ceremony June 25Guest Author11 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agolast_img read more

Bell Labs chief sees time and trust as core to digital future

first_img IFA Berlin to get fresh format Home Bell Labs chief sees time and trust as core to digital future Steve Costello Steve works across all of Mobile World Live’s channels and played a lead role in the launch and ongoing success of our apps and devices services. He has been a journalist…More Read more BELL LABS FUTURE X DAYS, DUBLIN: The “fundamental values” of the future digital world are “time and trust”, Marcus Weldon, president of Bell Labs, proclaimed this week.“To trust this new digital reality, you need security and privacy to be protected. Technologies have to allow us to have a digital existence with privacy and trust, and securing our data. And if that’s possible, we will allow this new set of technologies to automate our lives and save us time. The network is going to save you time, that’s the story,” he said.Unsurprisingly Weldon, who is also CTO of Bell Lab’s parent Alcatel-Lucent, highlighted the importance of the network in this evolution. “We need to connect web services to end devices, to my mobile device when I am interacting digitally, or my 3D printer. And between those things needs to be a kick-arse network. In the middle of this, the network is forming the digital fabric of the future.”“We’ve always got to have a technology that is ten times better than the previous technology. We’ve got to do it at a lower cost per bit, because there’s not infinite money to spend on this network. And it’s not all about headline speed: it’s about making the network feel as if it has infinite capacity,” he observed.The executive also noted that there are four key positions in the “digital reality”: cloud, connectivity, content and control (where the automation element sits).“You’ll see the future of our industry in these four. You can map Google into this: Google is a content company in YouTube, it is in control in terms of connected car and so on, Project Loon and Google Fibre are connectivity, and it’s clearly a cloud hosting provider,” he said.“Service providers, interestingly, were in connectivity, and a little bit in control in terms of communications platforms. Now, increasingly they are moving into cloud and some even are moving into content. You see these worlds are merging around these value paradigms,” Weldon continued.“All of them are aspiring to get to the top, which is the control paradigm, because that’s the one that saves you time. That’s where the highest value is. The other three have value, but ultimately control is at the top because value percolates up to this layer. That’s why the network saving you time is fundamentally important, because that’s where the new value is,” he observed.
