(Roux, of course, is used to nothing but the best, having worked with the “godfather” of London maitre d’s, Silvano Giraldin, for years and years at Le Gavroche.)Meanwhile, over at Parliament Square, The Capitalist hears he’s just installed Toby Stuart as his new chef, fresh out of his position as senior sous-chef at the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows.Eagle-eyed spies tell me that Stuart – who originally sharpened his kitchen knives at some of the finest eateries in the world, including The Square, L’Escargot and Auberge du Lac – has been given something of a baptism of fire with the distinguished patrons frequenting the joint. Just a stone’s throw from the House of Commons, he’s already cooked for the likes of defence secretary Liam Fox, shadow chancellor Alan Johnson and chancellor George Osborne – though I’m told PM David Cameron has yet to make an appearance…PUBLICITY STUNTTodd Combs, the hedge fund manager elevated by billionaire investor Warren Buffett to oversee a significant part of his firm Berkshire Hathaway’s investment portfolio, might need to get himself a spot of media training if he’s going to become prime candidate to succeed the Sage of Omaha himself.Buffett, speaking to Fortune magazine about the appointment, described Combs as an “all-American type” who shuns publicity. That’s hardly a phrase you could use to describe Buffett himself, who has previously gone as far as to dress up in a wig and bandanna and perform as rock star Axl Rose in a television commercial to promote one of Berkshire Hathaway’s portfolio companies, Geico – all in the name of publicity.top marks for effortWhere graduates once sweated over online applications in the elusive search for that first job, the students of today have become ever more enterprising.In the depths of the crisis, we had jobseekers walking around cities with billboards around their necks and one memorable candidate standing on the Fourth Plinth at Trafalgar Square advertising his skills.That trend continues – one young chap, Matthew Riley, tells The Capitalist he plans to stand outside Bank station this morning handing out 1,000 copies of his CV to commuters, in the hope of landing an internship.Apparently, the second-year student is interested in opportunities in investor relations or client management – and not so long ago tried a similar stunt at Canary Wharf, when the distribution of less than half that number of CVs landed him an interview at Shell.PARADISE FOUNDTempting stuff, this, at a time when uncertainty is rife and many jobs in the financial services sector are looking less than 100 per cent secure.Escape The City – the website set up by two former management consultants during the economic crisis, in order to help workers pursue their dream careers – has teamed up with holiday group Paradise Hunter to launch a competition to land the job of a lifetime.Said job involves being paid $60,000 (£37,900) to travel around the world for 52 weeks, presenting a TV series for Paradise Hunter – taking in the sights and culture of no fewer than 12 countries, including Belize, Costa Rica, the British Virgin Islands, New Zealand, Thailand and India, along the way.What’s more, the successful “job” applicant will be given a property worth up to $150,000 at the end of the year in their favourite “paradise” country. Are they for real?LEADING LIGHTWell-deserved kudos yesterday for Morgan Stanley’s international treasurer David Buckley, who was honoured with the Walker Award for Commitment to Diversity in Financial Services – an award established in memory of Tory peer and former chairman of Kleinwort Benson Lord Walker, a committed campaigner for greater diversity for the City, who died earlier this year.The award was set up by an organisation called The City Fellowships in Financial Services, founded to help American minority financiers living in London, which applauded Buckley’s “career-long dedication and outstanding commitment to the empowerment of women and ethnic minorities in the City”.

Horse racing in the country had been suspended since 25 March when Alert Level 4 – resulting in a nationwide lockdown – was put into effect.However, RITA said it is yet to reach an agreement as to when greyhound racing could return, with officials in the process of finalising Greyhound Racing NZ’s approval for participants to prepare for trials from 28 April. Confirmation of the protocols is expected early next week.Earlier this week, RITA outlined a draft plan for a resumption of racing following the pandemic, setting out an initial proposal for the resumption of greyhound racing on 11 May, harness racing on 29 May and thoroughbred racing on 3 July.The plan also sets out how the number of racing venues in use in New Zealand would reduce from 36 to 12, as well as that all races would occur behind closed doors – in line with initial measures set out prior to Alert Level 4 coming into effect.A consultation had been due to concluded 28 April, with RITA planning to issue a final calendar on 4 May. “The resumption of training and trialling is a critical milestone in preparation for a full return to racing from next month, subject to finalisation of the draft racing calendar from May to July 2020,” RITA said.“RITA is thankful for the efforts of some key code staff and government officials who have worked long hours to turn this process around and give the industry some certainty to resume.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter New Zealand horse racing training to resume next week Tags: Race Track and Racino New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) has announced initial approval for businesses and stakeholders in the country’s thoroughbred and harness racing sectors to return to work on 28 April.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Sunday, 25th October, 2020 Investing money in UK shares after the stock market crash can be a difficult task. Risks such as Brexit and the pandemic remain in play. They could cause difficult trading conditions for many businesses. Therefore, it may be prudent to seek to reduce the impact of potential threats when investing money in British shares.Furthermore, buying a diverse range of high-quality businesses with turnaround potential could mean that one generates impressive returns in the long run. Doing so may improve one’s financial prospects over the coming years.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…Risks after a stock market crashThis year’s stock market crash reflects an uncertain economic environment. Lockdowns caused by the pandemic, as well as political risks brought on by Brexit, could mean an extended period of slower growth for the UK and global economies.Therefore, it may be a good idea to try to manage risks wherever possible when buying UK shares. Diversification is an obvious means of achieving this goal.Holding a wide range of companies that operate in different sectors and geographies can reduce your reliance on a specific industry or location. This may be beneficial because it remains unclear to what extent some industries and regions will be affected by current threats.Furthermore, buying UK shares that can survive a second stock market crash may be a worthwhile move. This means companies with solid balance sheets and the financial strength to overcome potentially challenging operating conditions in the coming months.Buying British shares that are more likely to survive a period of economic weakness may mean that one’s portfolio can access the likely recovery in indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 over the coming years.Investing in UK shares with turnaround potentialThe stock market crash has clearly caused many investors to become downbeat. They may feel a stock market recovery isn’t possible, due to the risks ahead.However, UK shares are very likely to recover over the coming years. They have done so after every previous economic crisis and bear market. Many turnarounds have come after larger falls for the stock market than have taken place in 2020.Therefore, identifying companies with low valuations and the right strategies to adapt to changing global economic conditions could be a sound move. They may have competitive advantages and could offer a faster turnaround than their weaker sector peers.Clearly, the stock market crash has caused paper losses for many investors. However, every stock market downturn brings opportunities to make positive returns from the next bull market. That process may take some time to come into effect.However, investors who buy a diverse range of high-quality UK shares today could be among those who benefit the most from a likely resurgence in stock markets over the long term.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Like other UK banks, the lender came out of last year’s financial crash in better shape than many analysts expected. It booked large provisions for possible loan defaults, but recently it has released some of those provisions.The hot UK property market is another reason the bank’s shares are moving up. With a strong focus on its home market, Lloyds is highly exposed to UK housing. Ongoing strength in property sales bodes well for the bank’s outlook.Additionally, the bank has restarted dividends. Possible headwinds for the Lloyds share priceBut there are also concerns which could help push the Lloyds share price down again.One is the economy. So far the economic recovery has been strong and the property market is buoyant. However, no one has a crystal ball when it comes to economic performance. Any housing downturn could lead to default rates rising again.A lot of investors like myself are hoping Lloyds will raise its dividend as soon as it can. The bank has indicated that it plans to return to a progressive dividend policy. But for now the dividend remains constrained by regulatory requirements.I think uncertainty about the future dividend and a lower payout level compared to several years ago are acting as brakes on the Lloyds share price.Can the Lloyds share price hit 60p?To hit 60p this year, the Lloyds share price would need to rise around 30%. That is a heady increase – but the shares have already risen by that much this year. I think they could do the same again. I see a number of potential drivers to help push the price upwards.For example, the company’s current share price does not even match its tangible net assets. They were reported in last month’s quarterly results as 52.4p per share.The company has been accruing dividends and at some point it will likely do something with this money. Even if it does not pay it out to shareholders, the cash pile is an asset that should help bolster the company’s value.The yield is only 1.2% for now. However, the company has said it plans to resume its dividend programme “at a higher level than 2020”. RisksIf the bull case above is right, I do think the Lloyds share price could hit 60p this year. But there is no guarantee of that. While a new chief executive settles in, the bank’s performance could take a turn for the worse.Meanwhile, the shares have already climbed a lot. That suggests that many investors have factored in a lot of the positive investment case. That could mean that it will be harder for the Lloyds share price to keep climbing in the absence of strong positive news flow.My planI continue to hold Lloyds and look forward to receiving its dividend on 25 May.

Jack D’Arcy takes a look at the facts and figures ahead of this weekend’s European Champions Cup final between Clermont and Toulon at Twickenham… Colour clash: Toulon wing David Smith scores against Clermont in a Top 14 game. Photo: Getty Images With larger bounties come larger amounts of mercenaries – and the Top 14 is no exception. As rugby trundles its way into the deeper realms of professionalism, the game has become an international affair. On Saturday players will come from each corner of the globe to play out the European final, but what affect will this have on the French national side? Have foreign imports dragged the French players to European finals? Or have ageing southern hemisphere stars deprived French youth of opportunity? Either way it’s likely 13 Frenchman will take to the field on Saturday – a considerable amount more than England (2), Wales (2), Scotland (0) and Ireland (0) put together.Clermont v Toulon, Twickenham, Sat 2 May, 5pm LINEOUTSPower player: Canada’s Jamie Cudmore on the charge for Clermont. Photo: Getty ImagesIf they do chose to kick downfield, Clermont will look to the well-oiled springs of Damien Chouly to steal opposition ball. No other player has pinched more lineouts in this year’s competition than the Frenchman (5), claiming two in his last appearance against Saracens.The battle in the engine room will be ferocious with the wizened old pairing of Ali Williams and Bakkies Botha pitted against the gargantuan Jamie Cudmore and Sébastien Vahaamahina. However, Bernard Laporte will be concerned with his locks’ discipline after Jocelino Suta and Botha were fortunate not to join Williams in the sin-bin during the semi-final. Unfortunately for Leinster both forwards went on to make a positive contribution to proceedings. Botha was impeccable in defence, not missing a tackle, and Suta took three lineout catches, although somehow escaping disciplinary action for choking Richardt Strauss.FOREIGN EXPLOITS LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Whatever the final score at Twickenham on Saturday history will have been written. Either Toulon will claim an unprecented third successive European title or Clermont will lose their tag of ‘the best team not to have won it’ by taking that final step to glory. Toulon are narrow favourites with the bookies but will it be one game too far for an ageing side? Or will Clermont choke at the last again, a la 2013? We look at some of the key statistics ahead of the European Champions Cup final…TURNOVERSOnce again nominated for European Player of the Year, Steffon Armitage’s influence at the breakdown remains tyrannical. Toulon lead the way in terms of turnovers in the Champions Cup with 78 – and almost 27% of those came from the clawing paws of Armitage. Benched for the semi-final against Leinster the back-row’s impact was immediate when he took to the field – wrestling Sean O’Brien to the ground and forcing a turnover after Jamie Heaslip and Devin Toner failed to budge the Englishman off the ball. At 5ft 9in and 16st 3lb, his squat stature and low centre of gravity means he is near enough immovable on the deck. An ‘exceptional circumstance’ perhaps?KICKINGLeigh Halfpenny‘s kicking accuracy has fallen on the tedious side of metronomic lately! The ‘other Jonny’ has slotted an amazing 87.8% of his 41 shots at goal this tournament, amassing 92 points, but has surely found a worthy adversary in the form of Brock James. The Clermont fly-half has not missed a kick from his 11 attempts off the tee while his punts and chips from hand were magnificent in gaining territory against Northampton and unlocking a resolute Saracens defence in the last round. James has battled his way to a starting berth after the promising early-season form of Camille Lopez but will hope one more noteworthy performance will be enough to erase the memory of 2013.On target: Leigh Halfpenny has been accurate from the kicking tee all season. Photo: Getty ImagesA TALE OF TWO FULL-BACKSWhile Halfpenny’s boot may lead Toulon to their third successive European crown, his running game has lacked a certain fizz. The full-back’s last try in the competition actually came against Toulon, over two years ago, while playing for the Cardiff Blues. With ball in hand Halfpenny has made four clean breaks, beaten six defenders and gained 228 metres. The statistics are worthy but by no means comparable to the open-field carnage performed by Nick Abendanon. Also in the running for European Player of the Year, Abendanon seems to have a monopoly on swerving and gliding related adjectives. And his performances, along with those of Armitage, continue to challenge England’s protectionist selection policy.
He was named club captain but a series of concussions that autumn prompted Ibanez to retire in February 2009.Having done some coaching with Wasps Academy while he was still playing, Ibanez has made the move into management and took up the reins at Bordeaux-Begles in 2012. He was hotly tipped to get the France coach’s job last year before Guy Noves was named instead, but his time will surely come. Major teams: Dax, Perpignan, Castres, Saracens, WaspsCountry: France Test span: 1996-2007France caps: 98 (75 starts)Test points: 40 (8T)He took over the France captaincy at the start of 1998 on just his third Test start and led les Blues to a Grand Slam that year. Three more Six Nations titles followed, while Ibanez also played in three World Cups, captaining his country at the 1999 and 2007 tournaments.He concedes he had a confidence crisis after his first World Cup when new coach Bernard Laporte, seeking cool-headed discipline in place of hot-headed passion, suggested Ibanez wasn’t the type of hooker he wanted.Ibanez got the message, not only assessing his mental approach but sharpening up in every technical area, as well as adding weight without any loss of mobility. In short, he became an even better player and if he hadn’t retired from Test rugby after RWC 2003 – only to return in 2005 – he would have exceeded a century of France caps. Only Fabien Pelous (111) and Philippe Sella (118) have more than him. TAGS: The Greatest Players Once the world’s most-capped hooker, Raphaël Ibanez lifted trophies at domestic, European and international level and was a popular and highly respected player and leader Raphael Ibanez on the charge LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Born in Dax in the Basques region in 1973, Ibanez grew up around bull fighting and rugby, as his father Jacques played hooker for the home-town club. Ibanez played for Dax from 1991-98, then had spells at Perpignan and Castres before crossing the Channel to join Saracens after the World Cup.In 2005 Ian McGeechan lured him to Wasps and Ibanez shared in some of the club’s greatest triumphs. There was none better than the 2007 Heineken Cup final, when Ibanez scored one try and made another through two brilliantly-worked lineout moves against Leicester.

But, Not So Fast Gary Truitt The American Farm Bureau Federation today responded to the inflammatory tactics of three environmental activist organizations who have asked to intervene in AFBF’s recent privacy lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency. AFBF’s suit in federal court in Minnesota seeks to protect farmers’ and ranchers’ personal information from disclosure by EPA under the Freedom of Information Act. AFBF filed suit in July to stop EPA from publicly releasing personal information about hundreds of individual farmers and ranchers and their families. The organization is asking the court to clarify EPA’s obligation to keep personal information about citizens private when responding to Freedom of Information Act requests. The protection of information such as farmers’ and ranchers’ names, home addresses and GPS coordinates, phone numbers and email addresses is at stake. Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF Objects to Inflammatory Attacks in Privacy Suit Facebook Twitter “Instead of addressing important issues of whether farmers and ranchers are entitled to the same privacy protections for their homes that other citizens enjoy, these groups are trying to make this case into a referendum on whether livestock and poultry farmers are adequately regulated under the Clean Water Act,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman. “Their brief is filled with exaggeration and fabrication about how livestock and poultry farmers operate their farms and how they are regulated. Those statements have nothing to do with this case and are purely an effort to vilify family farmers in the court and in the press.” AFBF Objects to Inflammatory Attacks in Privacy Suit By Gary Truitt – Sep 13, 2013 SHARE Facebook Twitter While AFBF did not oppose the groups’ request to intervene in the case, it filed a response objecting to the false accusations about poultry and livestock farmers. AFBF also objected to the groups’ efforts to detract the court’s attention from the important privacy questions presented in the case.
News Organisation December 13, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio Dabanga contributor freed, all charges dropped Follow the news on Sudan RSF_en Help by sharing this information —–29.08.2011 – Call for release of all imprisoned journalists in wake of president’s announcementReporters Without Borders welcomes President Omar Al-Bashir’s announcement during a meeting with journalists on 27 August that he intends to free all the journalists imprisoned in Sudan, but it calls for this decision to also include media workers and for it to be carried out without delay.The announcement was followed yesterday by the release of Gafar Alsabki Ibrahim, a journalist with the Arabic-language daily Al-Sahafa, who had been detained since 3 November 2010. But Abdelrahman Adam, a contributor to Radio Dabanga held since 30 October 2010, was not freed. Three other persons who are accused of working for this station – which they deny – are also detained.“Gafar Alsabki’s release is obviously good news but the authorities must also free Radio Dabanga’s contributor and must go further by dropping all the charges against him,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We should also not forget that the past few weeks have been marked by confiscations of newspapers and a return to prior censorship, measures that violate media freedom. If Sudan wants to be seen as a country that respects freedom of expression, it really must put a stop to such practices.”Broadcasting on the short wave from the Netherlands, Radio Dabanga is the only station that specializes in covering the situation in Darfur. As it is not legally recognized by the Sudanese authorities, its contributor in Sudan lack a press card and official recognition of his status as a journalist.Adam and the three other detainees who deny being Radio Dabanga employees are accused of divulging state secrets, undermining the constitutional system, calling for resistance and inciting sedition under articles 24, 25, 26, 53 and 50 of the 1991 criminal code and articles 18, 42 and 44 of the 2001 communications law. The article 50 violation carries the death penalty.
