Total sales leapt 59.8 per cent to £32.8m in the three months to 1 August as its trademark hoodies and checked shirts continued to fly off the shelves.The company’s shares closed 3.7 per cent lower at 1,107p after the figures were announced but analysts put that down to some investors selling shares to pocket profit. The share price has doubled since the IPO in March. SuperGroup’s wholesale business generated revenues of £10.5m from operations in the UK and 33 countries overseas.Founder and chief executive Julian Dunkerton said: “I see no reason to believe that we will not continue growing in the nature that we have been growing. Young people have to look good.”He claimed that SuperGroup, unlike fashion brands such as French Connection, would sustain its growth because it was hitting a gap in the market for quality, value for money, branded clothing that is not reliant on one product or one logo.SuperGroup opened five shops in the period, including one at Lakeside Thurrock, which Dunkerton said was the company’s most successful opening this year. The firm said it was eyeing more international openings to keep its expansion plans on track. Its first franchise store in the Middle East will be in Dubai. whatsapp KCS-content More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.com SuperGroup in sales boost whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL

Last month, CNBC’s Jim Cramer revealed his hypothetical ‘Cramer Covid-19 Index’. The Mad Money presenter and one-time successful fund manager reckons we’re in a stock picker’s market. He says the coronavirus crisis has damaged some sectors and companies. So the old advice of just buying tracker funds following a market index may lead to underperformance going forward.Cramer’s winning and losing sectorsI can see the logic. If we believe certain sectors are perhaps fatally damaged, why dilute our returns by holding them within a tracker? Even Warren Buffett ditched his holdings in airline companies recently. To quote Cramer: “There are just so many obvious winners and obvious losers. Please don’t make life difficult for yourself by owning the losers.”5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…He published the names of all the shares he picked for his Covid-19 Index, but most are US-listed firms. And not all UK investors will want to pick individual US stocks to hold. So let’s look at the sectors he named and identify some London-listed shares within them that could also do well from here.I think the exercise is worth doing because, in aggregate, Cramer’s stocks have been doing well and his index appears to be rising.BeveragesThere are plenty of choices in this sector. I’d focus on Diageo, Fevertree Drinks, Stock Spirits, Britvic, Nichols, and AG Barr.Cloud SoftwareThis is an intriguing sector and a fertile hunting ground for investors in today’s markets. I like the look of Sage, WANdisco, IMImobile, and Beeks Financial Cloud, among others.Consumer packaged goodsAn enduring sector for always in my view. I’d look closely at Unilever, Reckitt Benkiser, PZ Cussons, Accrol, and Creightons.By now you can see how easy it is to identify strong candidates just by focusing in on the sectors that Cramer identified for his notional index. Other sectors he mentioned include E-commerce and Financials. I’d look at firms such as Boohoo, ASOS, Rightmove, Auto Trader, and Prudential for these.Rich pickingsHe also mentioned the Video Games sector and we have several strong contenders on the London Stock Exchange, such as Codemasters and Frontier Developments. And in the Packaged Food sector, I’d look at Cranswick, Devro, and Greencore.There are some rich pickings in the healthcare sector. Cramer has a long list of US firms under that heading and I’d consider AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Vectura, and many others.You can hunt down your own candidates for the rest of Cramer’s sectors. They are Home Entertainment providers and Enablers, Mega-cap Technology, Small-cap technology, REITS, Restaurant Survivors, Retail Survivors, Semiconductors, and ‘Exotics’.One sector deserves a special mention because Cramer has labelled it Safety Stocks. And looking at his picks reveals energy and utility firms, which could perhaps be simulated on the London market with picks such as National Grid, SSE, Vodafone, and others.Overall, I reckon Cramer’s stock-picking approach makes a lot of sense right now, and I hope this article has sparked a few ideas for you.

También afirma que “los comités permanentes diocesanos y las parejas de obispos puedan crear “zonas empresariales de misión”, el cual es definido como áreas geográficas, como un grupo de congregaciones o como toda una diócesis, comprometidos con la misión y la evangelización que involucra a grupos insuficientemente representados, incluidos los jóvenes y los adultos jóvenes, las personas de color, los pobres y las personas que trabajan, las personas con estudios secundarios con diploma o menos, y/o personas con poco o ningún conocimiento o participación de la iglesia. “El texto está aquí“Las zonas empresariales de misión pueden ser patrocinados por congregaciones revitalizadas, así como por diócesis revitalizadas “, dijo el Rdo.

The boxes, distributed over the summer in McDowell County, West Virginia, featured stops in all seven continents. Photo: We Are The Teachers[Episcopal News Service] When the pandemic disrupts, ingenuity sometimes blooms. In rural West Virginia, the result this summer was Camp in a Box, an Episcopal initiative serving dozens of children in one of the poorest counties in the United States.The Highland Educational Project, a ministry of the Diocese of West Virginia, had been planning to launch a nine-week, in-person summer camp program for children who, for various reasons, were being raised by relatives other than their parents. The diocese received a $10,000 Roanridge Trust grant this year from The Episcopal Church to support such families engaged in what is known as “kinship care.”Then the coronavirus pandemic hit, forcing administrators to cancel, limit or reimagine Episcopal summer camps across the church over fears of spreading COVID-19. The Highland Educational Project team then shifted to a pandemic-ready alternative. Each week for seven weeks, participating families in McDowell County received boxes filled with a range of activities and supplies for exploring one of the world’s seven continents.Many of the children haven’t had opportunities to travel far beyond their home community, said Mary Green, the Highland Educational Project’s coordinator. “We wanted to create something to help them see there is so much out there to explore in life and … different cultures,” Green told Episcopal News Service.The shift to Camp in a Box also allowed Green and her team of partner organizations and volunteers to expand their pool of participants among the students of Kimball Elementary School. In addition to serving 33 children in kinship care situations, school administrators helped identify nearly 70 other students whose families would benefit from extra support.So, when Camp in a Box kicked off on July 10 with an invitation to explore Australia, the Highland Educational Project distributed customized boxes to 39 families with more than 100 young explorers waiting to see what camp fun was contained within.Inside each week’s boxes, the children found books, science experiments, suggestions for physical activities and art projects – koala art was featured during the Australia week – as well as recipes and ingredients for a meal the family could prepare at home. The Highland Educational Project also supplemented the boxes with a welcome kit mailed to the families. The kit included a wall map, passport and journal for recording the children’s travels around the world.And each family received a digital audio player that was loaded with recordings of a teacher reading the featured books out loud. The audio player also contained music from the continents visited by the students in their imagination, and they were encouraged to re-create some of the music at home with makeshift instruments.Green said the focus on helping kinship care families stemmed from the stories she had been hearing from residents, educators and social service providers. “These children, they’ve gone through traumatic situations that have landed them in a home not with their parents,” Green said.She didn’t have detailed information on the reasons most parents are absent, but some cases involve parents who have been incarcerated. She also noted that drug use often is an underlying problem among individuals and families in the region.McDowell County, with a declining population of about 20,000 people, is positioned on the Virginia state line and just east of Kentucky. It is a region of Appalachia that once rode the fortunes of the mining industry, but now, after years of coal mine closures, it is struggling with unemployment, drug addiction, water quality issues, deteriorating homes and failing infrastructure.The Diocese of West Virginia’s Highland Educational Project has served these communities for more than 70 years, providing food, clothing, help with utility bills and other basic assistance. Such efforts had stalled in recent years, resulting in the ministry’s temporary closure in 2018 amid a leadership transition.Green, who also serves as the diocese’s communications coordinator, took over in April 2019 as the Highland Educational Project’s interim director and has renewed ties with local partner organizations, such as the community group WATT, which stands for We Are The Teachers. The group provided volunteers for Camp in a Box distribution and promoted the ministry regularly on its Facebook page.“No better way to grow the mind, spark curiosity and instill hope in a child than to travel and see the world,” the group said in a post announcing the first distribution on July 10.Each week, Green and her husband, with the help of volunteers, assembled the boxes at their home in Charleston, West Virginia’s capital. With a list of the 39 participating families, they filled specially labeled boxes with a customized mix of items and loaded the boxes into Green’s Volkswagen Jetta and her husband’s Subaru Forester.Every Friday morning, the Greens drove more than two hours south to the tiny city of Keystone, just east of Kimball. After unloading the boxes in the City Hall parking lot, Green’s husband drove back to Charleston while Green stayed to oversee distribution. Families could drive up and have volunteers load the boxes into their car trunks. For families who couldn’t make it to the pickup location, Green delivered their boxes right to their homes.It made for a long day, but Green described the experience as “one of the biggest blessings I’ve ever had in my life.”She also hopes this experience has laid a foundation for future growth in the Highland Educational Project’s efforts to serve these families throughout the pandemic and when the crisis is over. Students return to school on Sept. 8, some in person and others online. Ministry volunteers already have delivered gift bags for school staff members who are preparing to receive students, and Green is planning to offer short online reading sessions for Camp in a Box graduates starting in October.And Green is already looking ahead to next year’s summer camp options.“I believe that the benefit of what we did this year can help us. Hopefully, in 2021 we will have a much more hands-on camp, where the camp counselors do come in. And we have built trust with the families and the school and the community as a whole,” Green said, “that we can do something next year that might look more like what we hoped it would this year.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

June 2, 2021 Find out more China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison ChinaAsia – Pacific April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders released a press statement on 26 July exposing the negative effects on free expression of Yahoo! and Google’s business strategies in China. The organisation would like to correct and to clarify its position on this issue : “We want to inform the US authorities about the importance of these search engines for free expression in China. But we in no way, as we wrote by mistake, wish the US government to put in place an code of conduct to be imposed on private Internet businesses working abroad”. China’s Cyber Censorship Figures RSF_en News Organisation News News ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further Receive email alerts News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Reporters without Borders has written to the US authorities to notify them of the growing threat to free expression on the Internet posed by China and to draw their attention to the importance of the search engines Google and Yahoo! to Chinese Internet-users. “We consider that the two American Internet giants should refuse to bend to Beijing’s wishes and refrain from censoring their search tools,” said the organisation.Yahoo! has been censoring its Chinese-language search-engine for several years and rival firm Google, which recently took a share in Baidu, a Chinese search-engine that filters a user’s findings, seems ready to go the same way. In their efforts to conquer the Chinese market, the two firms are “making compromises that directly threaten freedom of expression,” Reporters Without Borders said.Some combined key-word searches, such as “Free Tibet,” do not display any results. For others, only official sites appear. The top results of a search for ‘Falungong” produces only sites critical of the Chinese spiritual movement in line with the regime’s position. The same search using a non-censored search-engine turns up material supporting Falungong and about the government’s repression of its followers.Google has so far refused to censor its search-engine and access to it was blocked for a week in September 2002 by the Chinese authorities, who are currently obliged to filter its search results by themselves, which is more difficult and less effective.Google now seems to have changed tack. In June this year, it acquired a substantial share in one of China’s biggest search-engines, Baidu, which carefully filters out all “subversive” content. When Google was blocked in 2002, Chinese Internet users were redirected to baidu.com.

The latest survey by the official China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) says 80% of Chinese Internet users get online data by using them. Access to some, such as Altavista, have already been blocked inside China.The U.S. firm Cisco Systems has sold several thousand routers – costing more than 16,000 euros each – to enable the regime to build an online spying system and the firm’s engineers have helped set it to spot “subversive” key-words in messages. The system also enables police to know who has looked at banned sites or sent “dangerous” e-mails.For more on Internet censorship in China, see “The Internet under Surveillance 2004” from Reporters Without Borders, on its website, www.internet.rsf.org.
