The company, which provides services to clients such as the BBC, the Ministry of Defence, the NHS and Sainsbury’s, said profit was lower than in 2009 because of a downturn in its equipment services division.Interserve said both its project services and support services had reported improved results and that, going forward, it expected to benefit from an improved outsourcing market in the UK.The company is paying an increased final dividend of 12.4p, bringing the total dividend for the year to 18p. center_img whatsapp Interserve posts a decline in profit… KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

‘Completely avoidable’ strike to face results in a ban for Aled Brew

first_imgThursday Nov 14, 2019 ‘Completely avoidable’ strike to face results in a ban for Aled Brew Bath winger Aled Brew was red carded at the weekend after he stuck an elbow out and it made contact with Northampton Saints winger George Furbank. Brew appeared before a disciplinary committee last night and has subsequently been suspended.ADVERTISEMENTBrew appeared to stick his arm up in reflex after he hacked the ball into Furbank, but made contact with the chin, leading referee Ian Tempest to take action.It was viewed as a strike, resulting in a straight sending off for the former Wales winger.Brew was given a three-week suspension by the independent panel comprising Dan White (chair) with Chris Skaife and John Doubleday.WATCH: Aled Brew’s huge hit on Perpignan’s David Mele (2012)Independent panel chair Dan White said: “The panel did not accept that this was a reckless action by the player. It was a deliberate action that was completely avoidable; albeit committed in the heat of the moment.“No injury was caused to the opposition player who passed the HIA and returned to the field. Balancing all factors, the panel considered that this was a mid-range starting point of 6 weeks.“The player had accepted the charge at the earliest possible opportunity, showed remorse on and off-field and was candid before the panel in respect of his intentions. He has a clean disciplinary record over a lengthy career at a high level and on that basis, he was awarded the full mitigation of 50%”You can watch the incident below.ADVERTISEMENTMeanwhile, Wasps’ Paolo Odogwu was suspended for six weeks after he kicked a player in the head.Catch up on full highlights from Bath vs Northampton Saints belowADVERTISEMENTcredit: premiershiprugby Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Wonderful.org to reopen fundraising platform & launch additional service

Now, Wonderful.org has secured an open banking partnership with payment provider Citizen, which will enable it to relaunch and again offer a fundraising platform, with WHYPAY? taking over as its corporate sponsor and covering Citizen’s transaction fees.As a result, Wonderful.org’s platform will once more be available for event-style fundraising, and fee-free with charities receiving 100% of donations.Additionally, it is launching the Wonderful Payments service for other fundraising. This will also work with Citizen with payments made directly from the donor’s bank account to the charity account and Citizen charging a flat-rate charge of 10p per transaction. To use this service, charities need to register with Wonderful and add its Donate button to their website. It has already started processing donations for Cost of Cancer, which provides financial support for people undergoing treatments for the illness.Wonderful.org founder Kieron James, who also talks through the last few months for Wonderful.org in an interview featured on its website, said:“We’re so pleased to have Cost of Cancer be the first to cross the finish line and go live with Wonderful Payments. We look forward to helping this and so many other charities process donations in the most economically efficient way. The Wonderful Organisation was launched in 2016 because we firmly believe charity donations shouldn’t be lost to platform fees, card processing costs and tip-jars, but funnelled directly into charities’ work.” Melanie May | 14 October 2020 | News Wonderful.org to reopen fundraising platform & launch additional service  1,247 total views,  2 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Indiana Ag Day Honors Work of Farmers and all Driving the…

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Ag Day Honors Work of Farmers and all Driving the Ag… SHARE Indiana Ag Day 2017One thing the Indiana House and Senate Agriculture Committee chairs could easily agree on during the Indiana Ag Day ceremony at the statehouse yesterday is that the observance is important, for both farmers and Indiana consumers. Senator Jean Leising is from Oldenburg in Franklin County.“You know every once in a while when I’m working on ag issues at the Statehouse somebody will say ‘oh I don’t care about those farmers, I’ll just go to the grocery store.’ I always have to laugh and at the same time of course it raises my ire and I’m giving them heck because truthfully, we all know where food comes from, so it’s very, very important,” she said.Both the Senator and State Rep Don Lehe from Brookston in White County have spent many years on the farm, so they understand what it takes for farmers to drive the Indiana economy as they do. Lehe hopes farmers keep doing that important work.“I understand all their challenges and all their efforts don’t go unnoticed,” he told HAT. “I appreciate all the efforts of agriculture in general, specifically farmers. There have been some ups and downs recently and we’ve got to stay the course and hope for a better future and continue to do the hard work.”Lehe said many farmers play a key role at the statehouse educating their representatives about the important issues they face on the farm.During the Tuesday observance of National Ag Day and governor’s proclamation of the day as Indiana Ag Day, other elected officials were joined by farmers, FFA members and state officers, and Indiana’s Family of Farmers, a group of the state’s major commodity and policy organizations promoting Indiana agriculture.IFoF organized the day’s events at the Capitol building and elsewhere, according to the chair, Lauren Taylor.“We had a dietician go along with a farmer on Fox59 this morning making pizza, and just talking about how pizza comes from different farmers, whether it be dairy farmers, wheat farmers, or pork farmers and how that all goes into pizza. We do a lot of activities out at the Indiana State Fair with the recipe trail that we hope consumers can learn by going to all the different buildings and getting them on the north side of the fairgrounds as well.Also, Tuesday the winners of the IFoF Ag Day Video Contest were recognized. They submitted videos focused on the future of agriculture, and the 2017 winners are:Grades 6-8:1st Place Winner: Nathan Tuholski, from Mill Creek, Ind.2nd Place Winner: John Jackson, from Jamestown, Ind.3rd Place Winner: Shenandoah Middle School, from Middletown, Ind.Grades 9-12:1st Place Winner: Katelyn Smith, from Logansport, Ind.2nd Place Winner: John Schuler, from Roann, Ind.3rd Place Winner: Anna Taylor, from Corunna, Ind.

South African H-2A Workers Get Exemption to Travel Ban

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News South African H-2A Workers Get Exemption to Travel Ban SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleHoosier Ag This Week for January 30, 2021Next articleOil Industry Seeking Unusual Alliance in Farm Country NAFB News Service The U.S. State Department issued a clarification on its ban on non-citizens entering the United States from South Africa. A Biden administration proclamation suspended travel from several countries due to COVID-19 concerns. The State Department clarified that agriculture workers entering the U.S. qualify for the national interest exception on a case-by-case basis.The American Farm Bureau recently sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this week requesting an exemption for South African farm labor.“We appreciate the swift action by the State Department to address a critical need for American agriculture,” says AFB President Zippy Duvall. “Farmworkers from South Africa bring a valuable and unique skill set to the farms where they work. America’s farmers rely on the H-2A program to provide a robust workforce, and we are committed to ensuring their safety while continuing to provide healthy, affordable food for American families.”President Biden’s proclamation allows non-citizens to be exempt from the ban if their arrival is in the national interest. Food and agriculture workers have been deemed essential during COVID-19.

There is so much school spirit right there.”The idea for the watch party came after first-year biology major Cole Weber, a Minnesota native, approached Thompson about using the movie screen from Milton Daniel for the game.“I thought, how can we get the same excitement as a home game for an away game,” Weber said. “It’s fine to just watch it in your room, but a big group, that’s a lot of fun.”In addition to the game watching and free snacks, Thompson said that TCU’s comedy group, Senseless Acts of Comedy, would be putting on a half time show in the BLUU auditorium.“Being a part of the watch party is such an awesome opportunity for SAC to support the Frogs,” SAC co-president Nick Barnette said. “Even though none of us have what it takes to be a TCU football player, we like to think of our halftime performance as our small contribution to demolishing the Gophers.”While there are currently no plans to expand this event to future away games, Thompson said that SGA is open to the idea.“If it’s something that big and a lot of students come to this I think it would be really fun to see what we could do,” Thompson said. “We’re happy to look into more games.” + posts Linkedin Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.

The Lab’s Bay Mobile is a traveling “sea show” that goes around the state bringing the sea to schools that don’t have the opportunity to visit the sea lab site.“We have schools from all across Alabama and beyond that visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab every year,” said Greg Graeber, a Sea Lab employee “However, there are many schools that don’t have that opportunity so we take the lab to them. We want all students, kindergarten through 12th grade, to know that life forms beneath the sea are fascinating but they can also be so bazaar that they rival science fiction.”Graeber said the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Bay Mobile visits schools, free of charge, through grant funding and between 12,000 and 15,000 students benefit each year. In addition, more than 12,000 people visit Dauphin Island Sea Lab on Dauphin Island annually.“Science is fascinating and so is the sea,” Graeber said. “It’s almost incredible that all of the sea animals that we have on display, with the exception of about three, live in or around coastal Alabama.”Graeber said the whole idea of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab mobile unit is to introduce students and teachers to the wonders of the sea.The PCES students were wide-eyed with wonder as Graeber showed an octopus and explained why it has three hearts. They marveled at the thought that the eye of a flounder actually moved from one side of its body to the other. They were amazed to learn that spinner sharks inhabit the coastal waters of their state and shook their heads in disbelief that a shrimp mantist is faster than a speeding bullet.“There are so many fascinating things about sea life and we hope that the students are motivated to learn more,” Graeber said. “Most of them have no idea that the sponges their mothers buy to wash their faces are actually the dead bodies of animals. The sea is a fascinating place and a place of great discovery.”Anita Grant, PCES principal, expressed appreciation to Graeber and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab for making the visit to PCES possible.“Many of our students have never been to the beach,” she said. “And those who have had the experience might have seen a jellyfish or picked up shells on the beach but have never seen sea animals like these. To see and touch sea animals is a unique learning experience for them. And, the hands-on experiences enhance what they have learned from books. This was a great opportunity for them and we appreciate it.” Latest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 8:08 pm Wednesday, March 19, 2014 Mobile lab brings sea life to PCES (PHOTO GALLERY) Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Sponsored Contentcenter_img Skip Email the author Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
