Sales of its branded products, meanwhile, grew by an impressive 13.6%.Premier Foods said it gained more customers during the last financial year “as a result of more people cooking from home, experimenting with new recipes and expanding their repertoire of meals.” It said too, demand for its edible goods continued to grow ahead of the broader market. The company’s market share rose by 70 basis points year-on-year.Premier Foods said it enjoyed “a prolonged period of elevated demand for its product ranges” as Covid-19 lockdowns forced people to eat all of their meals from home. It managed to keep product availability high due to the “robustness” of its supply chain, it noted. And a combination of brand investment and new product launches allowed it to gain market share in the period, it added.Dividends returnSoaring sales at Premier Foods saw adjusted pre-tax profit increase 23.5% year-on-year, to £117.9m. Meanwhile, net debt at the business dropped to £332.7m, from £429.6m in financial 2020. And the company’s net debt to EBITDA ratio plummeted to 1.9, from 2.7 previously, the lowest level on record.Premier Foods says that it has “made significant progress in delivering against its branded growth model strategy in recent years,” a drive which has pushed net debt to levels that would dividend payments to resume. Consequently the UK food share said it will pay a 1p per share dividend for fiscal 2021. This is the first shareholder payout since 2008.A bright outlookLooking ahead, Premier Foods said it has entered the new financial year “in a strong position.” The FTSE 250 firm paid tribute to its larger consumer base, upcoming new product launches, and television advertising among some of its largest brands in the coming months, as reasons to be optimistic.Premier Foods has begun fiscal 2022 in line with expectations, it said. And it added that “[we] will look to expand through accessing new categories in the UK and also in selected overseas markets, while exploring bolt-on acquisition opportunities.” Enter Your Email Address Royston Wild | Wednesday, 19th May, 2021 | More on: PFD Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

NOT FOR FEATURED Man of the Match Tom Wood: “It’s absolutely brilliant. This is a day that will live long in the memory. We poured our hearts and souls into that after a frustrating couple of weeks; it was a brilliant effort from the guys.”In quotes – losersNew Zealand captain Richie McCaw: “We prepared for a big battle with 15 blokes coming out to play. Just after half-time we got the momentum back but we coughed it straight back and they’re a good team who took their chances.”Top statsEngland’s 17-point margin of victory is their biggest ever against New Zealand – their previous best a 13-0 win in 1936 – and the second heaviest defeat the All Blacks have suffered. It is England’s 350th Test win.Match highlightsENGLAND: Alex Goode; Chris Ashton, Manu Tuilagi (Jonathan Joseph 67), Brad Barritt, Mike Brown; Owen Farrell (Freddie Burns 65), Ben Youngs (Danny Care 69); Alex Corbisiero (Mako Vunipola 67), Tom Youngs (David Paice 73), Dan Cole (David Wilson 73), Joe Launchbury (Courtney Lawes 67), Geoff Parling, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw (captain), Ben Morgan (James Haskell 58).Tries: Barritt, Ashton, Tuilagi.

Flying solo: Chris Ashton scores England’s second try in a famous victory over New Zealand at TwickenhamBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellEngland stunned the world champions with the type of complete, dominant performance they have been striving for all autumn. It was one of those matches when everything clicked for Stuart Lancaster’s side and they made a mockery of pre-match predictions to secure a memorable – and comfortable – win over New Zealand. Owen Farrell was the key man in the first half, building a lead with his boot while Dan Carter was uncharacteristically off-target, and after New Zealand hit back with two quick tries early in the second half Manu Tuilagi came to the fore as England crossed three times themselves.Key momentThe Ash Splash is back! Chris Ashton may have coughed a couple of balls into touch when England were putting pressure on the All Blacks, but when Manu Tuilagi made a sweet break in the opposition 22 in the 58th minute it was the Saracens wing on his shoulder. And he completed the score with a swallow dive, much to the crowd’s delight, as England extended their lead to a more comfortable 25-14.Spoils of victory: Manu TuilagiStar manManu Tuilagi was involved in all three England tries, adding a real spark to the hosts’ attacking game and causing New Zealand problems. He linked sweetly with Brad Barritt down the left wing for the first England try, broke clean through to set Chris Ashton up for the second and then intercepted a Kieran Read pass to sprint clear for the third.Room for improvementEngland appeared to learn all the lessons from the previous defeats to Australia and South Africa, so the challenge now is maintaining that in the Six Nations. Their powerful defence closed the All Blacks attacking game down and denied them the quick ball to which they are so accustomed while their set-piece also remained solid.Their attacking game also appeared to click, with support runners available as players made breaks when for much of the autumn they have been noticeably absent.While England’s purpose and intent meant All Blacks couldn’t get a foothold in terms of territory and points, the world champions must learn to play when things aren’t going their way and they can’t get such quick ball. Maybe they need to grind it through the forwards occasionally rather than always look to go wide.Try machine: All Black wing Julian Savea has scored 12 tries in his nine Tests in 2012In quotes – winners LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Tries: Savea 2, Read.

Gay Clark Jennings, who just completed a six-year term on the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, announced June 5 that she will stand for election as president of the House of Deputies.Jennings said in a posting on Facebook that she came to her decision “after much prayer and many conversations with Episcopalians around the church.”“I ask for your support, ideas, participation and prayers,” she said, asking people to join her on the page “so we can exchange ideas and questions about the work God is calling us to do.”Jennings also announced her intentions via a letter to members of the House of Bishops and Deputies e-mail listserv.“I’d like to work with you and other leaders to change the way we do business in the next triennium,” she said in the letter. “For the Episcopal Church to matter in the 21st century, we have to find ways to move forward together. I believe that God is calling us to embrace a future with no more false choices between mission and governance. No more false wars between individuals or groups. No more jockeying for turf or control.”Jennings said that, beyond asking for the support of deputies, she “hope[d] that all of you will invest and participate in building collaborative and networked partnerships for the work that God has called us to do at this General Convention and in the next triennium.”If elected, Jennings would serve from the adjournment of the July 5-12 meeting of General Convention in Indianapolis, Ind., until the adjournment of the next convention meeting in July 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She would succeed Bonnie Anderson, who has served two three-year terms as House of Deputies president.Anderson announced May 23 that she would not ask convention to elect her to a third and final term as president.The House of Deputies will accept nominations for the presidency during the upcoming meeting of convention on July 8 and the election for the 32nd president of the house will be held the next day.On July 10, the house will receive nominations for vice president, according to information here. That office has been vacant since Feb. 15, 2010, when Diocese of Minnesota Bishop Brian Prior, who had been vice president, was ordained bishop.The vice president of the House of Deputies must be a different order than the president.The House of Deputies includes up to eight voting members from each of the church’s 109 dioceses, one area mission and one convocation. The General Convention is one of the largest legislative bodies in the world.The President of the House of Deputies serves as vice president of the Executive Council and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (the Episcopal Church’s corporate entity). The president presides over the House of Deputies at General Convention, appoints clergy and lay members of all the standing commissions and convention legislative committees, and performs many functions of liaison, development, and opportunity between conventions.The position is unpaid, but in the 2010-2012 triennium General Convention provided (line 140-145 here) a budget of nearly $589,000 to cover Anderson’s expenses, to compensate staff to assist her and to cover the costs of maintaining an advisory council which the president appoints.Since Anderson announced her decision to retire some observers have commented on how the demands of the job could financially impact potential candidates.Jennings, 61, lives in Sagamore Hills, Ohio, and has been the associate director of CREDO Institute Inc. for the past nine years. CREDO provides an array of conferences and post-conference resources that help eligible Church Pension Fund participants examine, evaluate, and re-energize their health and wellness.“I am working to ensure that I will have all of the time necessary to devote to the position of president of the House of Deputies,” Jennings told Episcopal News Service shortly after she announced her intention to stand for election.Prior to joining CREDO, Jennings served as canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of Ohio for 17 years. She was ordained deacon in 1978 and priest in 1979, and served parishes in Virginia and Ohio early in her ministry. Jennings stood for election as bishop of the Diocese of Virginia in early 2007 when current Bishop Shannon Johnston was chosen.She is married to the Rev. Albert Jennings, rector of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Macedonia, Ohio, and dean of the diocese’s Summit Mission Area.Jennings chaired Executive Council’s Governance and Administration for Mission committee during the final three years of her term on council. As part of its work, the committee took the lead in revising the council’s bylaws and the personnel policy handbook for employees of the DFMS.She is also the clergy member of the Episcopal Church’s delegation to the Anglican Consultative Council, which next meets this fall in Auckland, New Zealand.– The Rev.

Located on the north end of Waterfront Drive, the project occupies a seemingly unremarkable site with limited visibility of the nearby river and neglected, industrial surroundings.Save this picture!© James BrittainWith a modest budget and a background in custom home building, the developer needed a design that could be built using standard construction methods by residential contractors. In response, the project challenges conventional multi-family housing design with a modular and more affordable configuration of individual dwellings that goes beyond the brief to include extensive outdoor space and inspired architectural interiors.Save this picture!Program DiagramThe final composition clusters three and four storey townhouses together on a shared plaza, which is elevated six feet above the sidewalk to suggest privacy and security without disengaging from the street. The plaza provides access to all of the suite entrances and shelters a new driveway for vehicular access and resident parking below. Each unit culminates in a rooftop patio with spectacular 360° vistas of the river and city skyline. Together, these two spaces lift residents above their industrial context, capturing formerly inaccessible views and carving a permanent community into a transitional setting.Save this picture!© James BrittainIn order to keep the project cost-effective, the design consists of two standard unit sizes – 18’ x 20’ or 18’ x 28’ – that each have two interior layout options. The first layout places the living spaces more traditionally on the main floor, while the other moves them to the upper levels for greater access to light and views. Similar to a house, the basements are cast-inplace concrete, while the upper levels are traditional wood-frame assemblies.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe cubes are clad in simple white stucco that reflects light into the plaza and provides a modern counterpoint to the neighbouring buildings. In addition to streamlining the construction process, the condominiums’ vertical design also leaves more room for outdoor amenities along the sidewalk edge, incorporating pockets of green space, small patios and entrances to commercial suites that offer live-work opportunities for residents.Save this picture!© James BrittainInside, each unit is defined by an architectural ‘wrap’, a design element that sculpts the interior into a fluid sequence of open plan rooms within a spacious, light-filled volume. Touching only two walls at a time, the wrap delineates floors and mezzanines as it weaves through the space, creating dramatic overlooks to the spaces below.Save this picture!© James BrittainThe wrap reacts with the walls of the cube by folding back onto itself, or continuing upward to form window openings. Ceiling heights soar up to 36 feet, filtering daylight from the top level all the way to the ground floor. The wrap becomes the mediator between the simplicity of the building’s shell and the complexity of living that occurs within.Save this picture!© James BrittainProject gallerySee allShow lessAR Issues: Has Architecture Lost its Social Conscience?ArticlesVideo: Inside the Brazil Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015VideosProject locationAddress:Winnipeg, MB, CanadaLocation to be used only as a reference.

One key feature of the architecture is the hand-made feature wall of black polished river pebbles, which acts as a backdrop for the floating steel staircase. The feature wall stands 3 stories high, and ties in the main common areas where the family entertains and gathers. The pebbles were specially selected accordingly to their shape, size and color. 5 workers painstakingly installed each pebble by hand over a period of 3 months to create the visual effect that we specified. The black textural quality of the wall serves as a contrast to the white polished marble flooring and painted walls of the rest of house.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksProject gallerySee allShow lessBE Friendly Space / H&P ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHermès Gion-mise / ODSSelected Projects Share 22 Toh Yi Road / Ming ArchitectsSave this projectSave22 Toh Yi Road / Ming Architects “COPY” Photographs: Edward Hendricks Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Edward Hendricks+ 16 Share 2016 CopyAbout this officeMing ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on February 02, 2017Cite: ” 22 Toh Yi Road / Ming Architects” 01 Feb 2017.

Help by sharing this information January 6, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three months remand in custody for an opposition journalist AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia June 4, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders expressed serious concern that an opposition journalist has been remanded in custody for three months. Sadig Ismailov of the opposition daily Baki Khaber is accused of taking part in clashes in Baku pitting opposition activists against security forces after the 15 October 2003 presidential elections. His editor in chief, Aydin Gouliev, said that Ismailov had been sent to cover the demonstrations at Azadliq Square on 16 October.The international press freedom organisation, which can see no justification for remanding him in custody, and moreover for such a long period, has asked for an explanation from interior minister, Ramil Usubov and the general prosecutor, Zakir Garalov. Ismailov was arrested in Baku on 30 December under Articles 220.1 (disturbing the peace) and 315 (refusal to comply) of the criminal code. On 31 December, the Nasimi regional court decided to remand the journalist in custody for three months, during the period of the investigation. Ismailov is being held at Bailov prison in Baku. He risks seven years in jail.Another journalist, Rauf Arifoglu, editor in chief of the opposition daily Yeni Musavat, has been detained since 27 October 2003 and accused of organising demonstrations on 15 and 16 October. Reporters Without Borders has also called for his release.

May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Americas June 3, 2021 Find out more BrazilMexicoAmericas Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists Citizen-journalistsFreedom of expression RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Germany is launching a new program to promote the safety of journalists over the next three years. to go further Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says News News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies The program will start in Brazil and Mexico, in cooperation with the Mexican human rights NGO Propuesta Cívica and the RSF office for Latin America in Rio de Janeiro. The new “Defending Voices Program for the Safety of Journalists” aims to help create safe environments for journalists and combat impunity for crimes committed against media workers. The program is funded by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through Reporters Without Borders Germany.“Brazil and Mexico are two of the most dangerous countries on the American continent for journalists. Every day, journalists face serious attacks ranging from threats to kidnappings and murder,” said Christian Mihr, executive director of RSF Germany. “The aim of the program is to improve the working environment and legal protection for journalists by strengthening independent media and vulnerable journalists and by putting an end to impunity for crimes committed against journalists.”Brazil: Strengthening the media of marginalized groupsThe PAJor project (Programa de Apoio ao Jornalismo) in Brazil aims to strengthen eight independent media (Amazônia Real, Rede Wayuri, Ação Comunitária Caranguejo Uçá, Marco Zero Conteúdo, Data_labe, Fala Roça, Alma Preta y Nós mulheres da periferia) that are distributed across four regions in the country (Amazonas, Pernambuco, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo). The journalists working for these media are members of social groups that are generally ignored, marginalized and discriminated against by the country’s mass and hegemonic media. As such, they play a fundamental role in the creation of new spaces for debate, the construction of identities and reflection on experiences of discrimination.Rede Wayuri is a network of 20 indigenous communicators from ten different ethnic groups. Their podcasts and audio bulletins are distributed to 750 indigenous communities in the Rio Negro as well as in the jungle. The investigative journalism agency Amazônia Real was created in 2013. The agency, which now has more than 40 collaborators in the nine states of the Amazonas region, was founded and is run by women. Alma Preta is a news agency that aims to cover the racial issues affecting areas on the outskirts of São Paulo, where most of the contributors live. It covers cases of racial discrimination, violence against the black population and racist structures in society. Data_labe is an organization for data and investigative journalism located in the da Maré favela, north of Rio de Janeiro. Narratives involving the inhabitants of Brazilian favelas are at the heart of its projects.In the PAJor project journalists will receive training in institutional sustainability, protective measures and security. Events will also be organised to raise public awareness of the problems and threats journalists face. In addition, a network of journalists who work in similar contexts is to be established, so that they can share knowledge and create synergies for the consolidation of free and safe journalism in Brazil. The project is coordinated by RSF’s Latin America bureau in Rio de Janeiro. These independent Brazilian media work in a highly insecure environment. The polarization of the political debate under President Jair Bolsonaro has led to repeated attacks against journalists in the form of threats, digital harassment, physical aggression and assassinations. The lack of institutional backing from major media organizations and the resulting lack of visibility has left the staff of these media outlets in a very vulnerable position.”In the last decade, more than 40 journalists have been murdered in Brazil. What we see today is an environment increasingly hostile to the practice of journalism. Communicators are often threatened and harassed for carrying out their work, directly affected by an official government rhetoric that stigmatizes the profession,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “In this scenario, marked by the growing democratic instability that the country is experiencing, it is more important than ever to strengthen the work of media that operate in difficult contexts and have the advocacy of human rights and the environmental agenda at the heart of their editorial lines.”Mexico: Fighting for justice for crimes against journalistsThe “Press in Resistance” project in Mexico aims to reverse practices and regulatory frameworks that violate freedom of the press and seeks justice and compensation for the harm done to journalists and family members who are victims of human rights violations. This is to be achieved through discussions, reports, research and political work at the national and international levels. In addition, cases are to be brought before national and international courts, and journalists are to receive training in security and safety measures. The project is run by human rights NGO Propuesta Cívica in Mexico City.In recent years Mexico has become one of the most dangerous countries in the world for practicing journalism. Even though it is not at war, it is currently the world’s deadliest country for journalists. Impunity, government collusion with members of organized crime, failure to prosecute crimes and deficiencies in the administration of justice are among the many factors behind this trend. The situation is exacerbated by statements issued by public officials and high-level authorities that discredit and stigmatize journalistic work, thus increasing the vulnerability of journalists. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador makes frequent verbal attacks against journalists.Propuesta Cívica is working on the cases of journalists Mauricio Estrada Zamora from Apatzingán, Michoacán (who disappeared in 2008), Ramon Ángeles Zalpa from Paracho, Michoacán (who disappeared in 2010) and Miroslava Breach from Chihuahua (murdered in 2017), as well as that of the daily El Mañana based in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, which has been attacked several times with firearms and hand grenades, and whose editorial director was murdered in 2004. So far, none of these crimes have been fully investigated. Well over 90 percent of the murders of journalists in Mexico go unpunished.“The main challenge we face when seeking for justice for journalists and their families is impunity. There is no punishment for those responsible for committing violations or crimes against journalists – especially public officials at all levels, followed by members of organized crime,” said Sara Mendiola, executive director of Propuesta Cívica. “Mexico’s public prosecutors’ offices don’t do their job. One reason for this is that the officials who investigate the crimes against media workers lack the necessary qualifications and expertise. Another is that the limited resources allocated by the government are inadequate. And finally there is often a lack of political interest in investigating these crimes and prosecuting those responsible.” Brazil is ranked 107th and Mexico 143rd out of 180 countries in the 2020 World Press Freedom Index published by RSF.
