Serco slumps after £1.4bn loss

first_imgSERCO boss Sir Rupert Soames has waived a £908,000 bonus after the outsourcing firm reported a loss of £1.35bn for 2014, compared with a profit of £108m the year before. Shares tumbled by 15 per cent as the market reacted to a set of results the company described as “very poor”. According to Serco, the business encountered “critical operational difficulties” during 2014 on some large contracts, which led to an “unexpected increase in costs to levels far above those seen in 2013”. The company also blamed the fact that, due to significant changes in senior management, the business was “operating for a number of months in a strategic vacuum” as the new team worked to develop a “new strategic direction” for the group.As part of the new strategy, Serco is attempting to reduce its debt and bolster its balance sheet. It announced yesterday that it is to carry out a rights issues, with the aim of raising around £550m. Up to £450m of the proceeds raised will be used to repay the company’s debt. The business is also suspending a final dividend for 2014. The group’s chief executive said 2014 had been “an extremely difficult year for Serco”. However, Soames added: “There is a real sense that, having confessed our sins and in taking the punishment, we are now ready to start on the path to recovery. We have all we need: a good plan, strong management to execute it, and, following the successful completion of our proposed rights issue and refinancing, a balance sheet that is an appropriate foundation on which to implement our new strategy.” More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.com Express KCS whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLcenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealth Gut BoostRandy Jackson: This 3 Minute Routine Transformed My HealthHealth Gut BoostMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbesNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyDiscovery29+ Fascinating U.S. Navy WarshipsDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedy whatsapp Serco slumps after £1.4bn loss Thursday 12 March 2015 10:10 pmlast_img read more

Greek election September 2015 results: Syriza might have won, but turnout falls and Alexis Tsipras’ share of the votes cast has dropped

first_img whatsapp Tuesday 22 September 2015 9:31 am whatsapp Greek election September 2015 results: Syriza might have won, but turnout falls and Alexis Tsipras’ share of the votes cast has dropped Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has hailed a clear victory and claims he feels “vindicated” after winning Sunday’s general election, designed to garner a fresh mandate.Polls had the race between Tsipras’ Syriza party and the centre-right group New Democracy as much closer than it transpired. He heralded the result as “a mandate to put an end to systemic corruption”. At best, however, Syriza’s win is tempered by the fact turnout for the election was just 56.5 per cent – a historic low for Greece and a 7.1 per cent drop from January’s election, when turnout was 63.6 per cent.A simple look at these numbers suggests that voters might have become apathetic and disconnected from their country’s politics and leaders. But the numbers also warrant some further analysis.Syriza won slightly fewer seats this time around, taking 145 of the total 300 seats available, compared with 149 in January. In total Tsipras’ party received 320,000 fewer votes than it did nine months ago. Or put another way, Tsipras won almost 2.25m votes in January, but just over 1.9m in September’s election, a 14 per cent decline. Read more: Greek results September 2015 – Greece’s election king Alexis Tsipras still has it all to proveThe chart below shows the amount of votes different parties won in January and September. Most parties saw their popularity drop, but Syriza actually experienced the biggest decline in the number of votes received. Proportionately, Syriza secured 35.5 per cent of the total vote – down from 36.3 per cent in January. New Democracy was the second-biggest loser, down 190,000 votes between January and September – but despite this it actually increased its take of the total votes cast from 27.8 per cent to 28.1 per cent. In third was the far-right Golden Dawn, which won seven per cent of the vote compared to 6.3 per cent in January. Syriza ended up with just over 13,000 votes per elected official in yesterday’s election, down from 15,000 votes per MP in January.Meanwhile, Popular Unity, which is made up of former Syriza MPs who defected last month, failed to reach the three per cent threshold to gain seats in parliament, suggesting that while Tsipras may have lost some of his popularity, he retains more support than those that want to bring about a Grexit.  center_img Share James Nickerson by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirrorzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comArticles SkillHusband Leaves Wife For Her Sister, Not Knowing She Won The Lottery Just Moments BeforeArticles SkillDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinitionTotal PastThis Was Found Hiding In An Oil Painting – Take A Closer LookTotal PastInteresticleMan Finds Wierd Cave In Scottsdale, Enters And Drops To His KneesInteresticle Show Comments ▼last_img read more

Battle against anti-socialist activities emphasized in lectures for Party cadres in…

first_img By Kang Mi Jin – 2019.02.25 1:00pm News US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again Rally in Pyongyang on carrying out plans outlined in Kim Jong Un’s 2019 New Year’s address. Image: KCNAThe North Korean authorities are emphasizing the battle against anti-socialist activities to Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) officials in the provinces and have reportedly handed down an order to strengthen their “ideological armor.”The order was delivered through Q&A-style lecture materials aimed at provincial and county party officials and primary party secretaries, and included an emphasis for them to take the lead in turning the country into a socialist superpower by transforming themselves first.“The authorities are urging all levels of the party to strengthen their ideological armor in advance of the Supreme People’s Assembly (SPA) elections next month,” said a South Hamgyong Province-based source, who added that the ideological training for party officials began in earnest right after the Lunar New Year vacation.“From late last year, there has been a lot of criticism of officials abusing their authority and having an overly-bureaucratic attitude towards the people. The lecture materials have emphasized that cadres themselves need to change first so that they can become the key link between the party and the people,” the source said.The lecture materials emphasized the idea that cadres must act as role models for the people in ridding the country of corrupt ideologies and practices to support the country’s efforts in developing socialism and the economy.“The materials point out that the electricity situation has gotten better recently and this has led to more and more people watching South Korean dramas and movies without a sense of wariness,” said the source. “Loyalty toward the party is lost when people fail to follow socialist principles and this ultimately leads them to fall into the trappings of imperialist culture. The party is thus ordering cadres to reject foreign culture.”The materials also included the following government demands: 1) production of consumer goods for the people must be increased in the light industrial sector to achieve North Korea’s ascendance as a socialist “strong country”; 2) the people must use high-quality products produced in North Korea; and 3) that the entire People’s Army and the people must become one to built the country economically.The materials also contain a section relating to current events that emphasize developments around unification, saying that “the desire for unification among all Koreans in both Koreas and abroad cannot be stopped” and that “the unification of the motherland is the long-cherished desire of our people.”“We have learned through the history of the party that the revolution’s successes and socialism itself cannot be protected when the military fails to receive the revolutionary, popular, and political guidance of the party, no matter how strong it is,” the materials further state. “The strength of our military, which is in complete solidarity with the party, is a great symbol of unity that can never be destroyed.”A separate source in South Hamgyong Province added that the materials “are being used each year to emphasize the ideological principles that cadres should be espousing, but there are more people being punished for anti-socialist activities. The materials are aimed at strengthening the struggle against anti-socialist activities in advance of the elections.” Kang Mi JinKang Mi JinKang Mi Jin is a North Korean defector turned journalist who fled North Korea in 2009.

African Swine Fever takes its toll on N. Korean pig farms

Questions about her articles can be directed to [email protected] RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store center_img Facebook Twitter TAGSnorth hamgyong provincefarmsafrican swine feverinfectious diseasepigssouth hwanghae province SHARE African Swine Fever (ASF) has caused mass deaths of pigs at farms in South Hwanghae Province and North Hamgyong Province, leading the central government to take action to prevent further outbreaks, Daily NK has learned. “Livestock disease[s] are spreading rapidly throughout the province,” a South Hwanghae Province-based source told Daily NK on Monday. “The authorities have issued an order through the Cabinet that livestock disease control authorities send investigation teams made up of around 20 people to all the farms with outbreaks.” From early May, pigs at farms in Haeju and Anak County started issuing bloody froth from their snouts and mouths before collapsing onto the ground. Around 10 pigs in one pig pen died from the disease, setting off alarm bells among the country’s livestock disease control authorities. There were similar mass deaths at farms in North Hamgyong Province, including in Gyongsong and Musan counties and in Chongjin. These cases were immediately reported to the authorities. “On May 6, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un issued an order to the provincial, municipal and county people’s committees to have disease control officials thoroughly disinfect and quarantine all livestock, cremate all deceased animals and submit reports on progress of the disease control process,” a North Hamgyong Province-based source told Daily NK. North Korean authorities have reportedly continued to emphasize that it is forbidden to consume the meat of the diseased livestock, in what appears to be a response to rumors saying that ASF and other infectious diseases affecting livestock are similar to the “common cold” – meaning, essentially, that eating the meat is safe. In fact, despite orders from the North Korean government to cremate the infected livestock or to bury them alive, these directives have frequently been disregarded. North Koreans reportedly sell infected meat at local markets or butcher the meat themselves to eat at home.North Korean authorities attribute the further spread of infectious diseases in part to the fact that when the infected pork is consumed at individual homes and the scraps are tossed, the scraps eventually wind up as animal feed, continuing the cycle of infection. Accordingly, the authorities have taken strong measures to monitor livestock farm workers, reasoning that they must be held responsible for ensuring that the diseased livestock are properly handled. “The authorities are threatening that the theft of disease livestock [to sell at local markets or to eat] will be designated an act of treason, in the sense that such acts undermine the party’s disease control measures,” the source told Daily NK. Daily NK reported last week that some 6,000 ducks, geese, pigs, goats and sheep died of infectious diseases at a livestock complex in Kangwon Province.*Translated by Violet KimPlease direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55%last_img read more

Rosser Bypass from Linstead to Moneague was signed at Jamaica House this afternoon (May 3) between the Government of Jamaica and Trans Jamaica/Bouygues Construction Company. Work on the J$7 Billion roadway will commence in June and should be completed over a 30 month period.On Tuesday (May 1) during her contribution to the 2007 Budget Debate, Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller announced the construction of the bypass road to ease the congestion and lengthy delays often encountered along Mt. Rosser. She said the accelerated development taking place along the north coast and the expansion of the tourism industry, provided added impetus for the construction of the roadway.Speaking at the signing, the Prime Minister said the Highway 2000 project and other associated road development programmes have already had a positive impact on the country’s infrastructure and social and economic progress. She said Highway 2000 not only links major economic centres, cities and towns through a modern and efficient road network, but it also serves as a catalyst for economic development.Mrs. Simpson Miller stressed the importance of involving the affected communities in the consultation process, adding that they must be made aware of the development and any possible inconveniences they may experience during the construction period. She stressed that where possible, every effort should be made to use local labour, in particular residents from surrounding communities.In the meantime, Managing Director of the National Road Operating and Constructing Company, Ivan Anderson said the Mt. Rosser Bypass is one of five sections of roadway to be built under phase two of the highway development project linking Spanish Town to Ocho Rios. Other segments include Spanish Town to Bog Way, Bog Walk to Linstead, Moneague to Golden Grove and Golden Grove to Ocho Rios. With the exception of Bog Walk to Linstead and Moneague to Golden Grove, all other sections of the North/South Link will be tolled.Funding for the project is provided jointly between the Government of Jamaica and the European Commission.center_img Work on Mt.

Another negative Ferguson release won’t change facts

And of course, it means fewer jobs.“Even Treasury don’t believe a word the Liberals say when it comes to infrastructure.“Treasury said they were of the view that it is likely that Infrastructure Investment outcomes over the Forward Estimates period will be lower than currently projected by agencies.“Treasury also called out this Government’s woeful record of delivery, noting they have failed to deliver 25% of what they promised every year since coming to office.“Instead of taking issue to my assessment, Michael Ferguson should get to work delivering what Peter Gutwein has promised Tasmanians, because the Liberal’s health and housing crisis have gone on too long.“Only Labor is working for Tasmanians to build a better and fairer state.”David O’Byrne MPShadow Treasurer /Public Release.
