Trainline shares are up 25%. Here’s what I’d do

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Trainline (LSE: TRN) shares had a successful initial public offering in 2019. However, the shares dropped along with other stocks in February last year due to Covid-19 fears. The stock has been on an upward trend in the past few months. It rose about 25% in the past six months. The UK is in the first stage of lockdown easing. With the reopening of the schools and decreasing Covid-19 cases, there is a lot of optimism in the market. FTSE 250 stocks are one way to benefit from the trend. I would like to evaluate Trainline shares today. 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…Bullish reasons to buy Trainline is the preferred app when buying train tickets. It is very convenient and the features are excellent. In recent times, more and more transactions are moving online. Trainline has benefitted from this trend.The company has been at the forefront in using modern technology. More specifically it is using artificial intelligence to give its customers the best prices and experience. It has a 4.9/5 star app rating, which indicates the level of customer satisfaction.The company has also introduced innovative features. Crowd alerts are one among them. It is a crowdsourced feature, which helps you see if certain parts of the train are busy. SplitSave is another feature wherein you split your long journey ticket into two or more parts on the same train to save money. I believe the company will introduce more of these high-tech features in the coming days.The company’s revenues have been hit badly this year due to Covid-19. Revenue for the fiscal year 2021 fell by 74% year-over-year (y-o-y) to £67m. Net ticket sales were £783m, compared to £3.7bn for the same period last year. I looked at the results pre-Covid-19 to get a better picture. In the previous year, revenue grew by 24% y-o-y and also had good cash flows. This FTSE 250 company has done well in reducing its operating expenses. Its average monthly cash burn is approximately £5m, which is below the company’s previous guided range of £8 to £9m. The company’s liquidity position is also strong. After the recent issuance of convertible bonds, its liquidity position increased to about £260m.Risks to consider Trainline has a dominant position in the online train booking at the moment. However, other companies might come up with a similar app. This could negatively impact the company’s shares. Google is one company that might want to integrate Google maps with train and other transportation-related businesses.Train and coach travel might take a longer time to reach pre-Covid-19 levels. Many companies have moved to work-from-home for their employees. Another reason is that the economy will take time to fully recover the lost business. People might also want to postpone their holiday plans this year. Lastly, the company’s debt has increased in the past year. This is a bit of a worrying factor if the cash flows don’t improve this year. Final view on Trainline sharesTrainline is an innovative company with good growth prospects. However, I feel the shares have moved a lot taking into consideration the current uncertainty in the travel industry. I would wait for more time to get better clarity on the travel industry.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Foto de Brian J. Morowczynski/Diócesis de Chicago.[Episcopal News Service] El 8 de junio, representantes de las diócesis de Chicago y Quincy acordaron por unanimidad reunificarse, algo que no han hecho otras diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal en los últimos 70 años.Ambas diócesis, reunidas por separado, aprobaron la misma resolución de reunificación.“Este es un día que ambas diócesis han anhelado”, dijo Jeffrey D. Lee, obispo de la Diócesis de Chicago, que será el obispo de las diócesis reunificadas, en un comunicado de prensa emitido después que ambas diócesis se hubieran pronunciado. “Ahora la gente de Chicago y la gente de Quincy se unirán en dar testimonio del poder del Cristo Resucitado que vence todas las divisiones”.El obispo provisional de Quincy, John Buchanan, añadió que “el pueblo fiel de Quincy nos ha mostrado a todos nosotros lo que significa vivir como testigos de la misión de Dios en la Iglesia Episcopal”.“Su infatigable compromiso con nuestra vida común los hará líderes inapreciables en la Diócesis de Chicago”, dijo él en el mismo comunicado.“Aquí hay un estado de ánimo jubiloso después de la votación”, según un mensaje de Twitter enviado desde San Pablo, la iglesia catedral de Quincy [Cathedral Church of St. Paul] en Peoria luego de la votación de esa diócesis. “Es una reunión de familia que se ha demorado mucho tiempo”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, que presidía la reunión, en Linthicum Heights, Maryland, del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia del 8 al 10 de junio, recibió la noticia con beneplácito. “Ha de hallarse una abundante bendición en comprometerse con nuevos modos de participar, de servir y de amar a nuestros prójimos. Que esto sea una abundante bendición para la gente de Illinois”.La Rda Gay C. Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados y vicepresidente del Consejo, enmarcó la decisión en el contexto más amplio de la reflexión de la Iglesia Episcopal sobre su necesidad de reorganizarse para hacerle frente a las necesidades de un mundo que cambia aceleradamente.“La restructuración empieza en casa, y hoy, los líderes de las diócesis episcopales de Chicago y Quincy le han dado un ejemplo a seguir al resto de la Iglesia”, dijo ella a ENS. “El Espíritu Santo nos llama a encontrar nuevas formas de colaborar, de modernizar y de reunificar, y ellos han respondido a ese llamado con previsión y gracia”.“Me siento particularmente agradecida por este felicísimo día para el pueblo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Quincy que nos han mostrado a todos nosotros lo que significa ser episcopales fieles”.La diócesis reunificada, que se conocerá como Diócesis Episcopal de Chicago, incluirá las 125 congregaciones de la actual Diócesis de Chicago en el norte de Illinois, y las nueve congregaciones y 755 miembros de Quincy en Illinois centrooccidental.Según el Canon 1.10.6 de la Iglesia Episcopal, una mayoría de los obispos y de los comités permanentes de otras diócesis episcopales deben dar su consentimiento a la reunificación. Suponiendo que se obtenga este consentimiento, las dos diócesis celebrarán su primera convención unificada los días 22 y 23 de noviembre en Lombard, Illinois, según un comunicado de prensa emitido después de las votaciones del 8 de junio.El consentimiento de la Iglesia reuniría a dos de las tres diócesis del Estado de Illinois creadas por la Convención General de 1877. Lo que entonces se llamaba la Diócesis de Illinois le pidió a la Convención que creara de su territorio dos diócesis adicionales —Quincy (con sede en Peoria) y Springfield— para ajustarse al crecimiento de la Iglesia que se esperaba en esas partes del estado. El resto de la Diócesis de Illinois conservó ese nombre hasta 1884 cuando fue rebautizada como Diócesis de Chicago.En noviembre de 2008, aproximadamente el 60 por ciento de los miembros de varias congregaciones de la Diócesis de Quincy abandonaron la diócesis y la Iglesia Episcopal para incorporarse a la Iglesia Anglicana del Cono Sur.Keith Ackerman, que entonces era el obispo de Quincy, anunció el 29 de noviembre de 2008 que se jubilaría el 1 de noviembre de ese año. El sínodo diocesano se reunió seis días después y una mayoría [de los delegados] aprobó abandonar la Iglesia Episcopal.Aproximadamente un año después, Jefferts Schori liberó a Ackerman de sus votos de ordenación luego que él le dijera que planeaba funcionar como obispo en la Diócesis de Bolivia. Él es actualmente el vicario del obispo de la Diócesis de Quincy de la Iglesia Anglicana en América del Norte (que incluye iglesias en Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas y Wisconsin) y presidente del Consejo de América del Norte de Adelante en la Fe [Forward in Faith North America Council].Buchanan, el obispo jubilado de Misurí Occidental, fue electo obispo provisional de Quincy en un sínodo especial de reorganización en abril de 2009. Según el acuerdo de la reunificación, Buchanan se convertirá en obispo auxiliar de la Diócesis de Chicago.Buchanan dijo durante su sermón del 8 de junio que en la convención de 2009, la diócesis “emprendió un camino que nos llevaría derecho al corazón de la Diócesis de Chicago”.El proceso que llevó a las votaciones del 8 de junio comenzó en 2012 cuando el Comité del Futuro de Quincy le abordó a Lee y a la Diócesis de Chicago la posibilidad de la reunificación, según el comunicado de prensa. Algunos miembros de la Diócesis de Quincy asistieron a la convención de Chicago en noviembre de 2012 cuando esa asamblea convino unánimemente en procurar la reunificación.Según progresaban las discusiones sobre la reunificación, los miembros de la Diócesis de Quincy comenzaron a participar en la vida de la Diócesis de Chicago, decía el comunicado. Dos congregaciones de Quincy participan de un programa bianual de desarrollo congregacional de [la Diócesis de] Chicago llamado Thrive [A prosperar] y hay clérigos y líderes laicos que han asistido a retiros y a actividades de adiestramiento con sus colegas de Chicago.En marzo, Tom Hunt, miembro de la iglesia catedral de San Pablo [St. Paul] en Peoria, fue electo a la junta de síndicos de Organizaciones Benéficas y Servicios Comunitarios Episcopales [Episcopal Charities and Community Services] en Chicago.“Me encanta el proceso de llegar a formar parte de la Diócesis de Chicago y su idiosincrasia de añadirle [elementos] a nuestra tradición episcopal sin quitarle nada”, dijo en un comunicado la Rda. Paula Engelhorn, rectora de la iglesia episcopal de San Jorge [St. George’s Episcopal Church] en Macomb, Diócesis de Quincy y participante de Thrive. “Quincy ha estado aislada durante 30 años, y ahora el Espíritu sopla. Ahora nos disponemos a crecer; ahora nos disponemos a ser parte de la Iglesia [en su acepción] más amplia y de su movimiento para incluir a todas las personas y abrazar los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio. Es un cambio maravilloso para nosotros”.Hal Stewart —segundo vicepresidente de Obispo y Síndicos de la Diócesis de Chicago [bishop and trustees of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago] y delegado a la convención por la iglesia del Santo Consolador [Church of the Holy Comforter] en Kenilworth— dijo que los síndicos de Chicago ven en Quincy a “un grupo de episcopales dedicados y fieles”.“Ellos no quieren nada más que regresar al redil y, una vez más, ser parte de una diócesis episcopal pujante y de la Iglesia Episcopal en general”, agregó. “Esta reunificación es la acción caritativa y correcta que hay que hacer”.Antes de la votación del 8 de junio en Chicago, Lee dijo en su alocución a la convención que los episcopales de la Diócesis de Quincy “han estado atreviéndose a practicar una confianza radical en la bondad superabundante de Dios”.“Su compromiso con Cristo y con la fraternidad de esta Iglesia es un acto de confianza pura, insensata y devota”, afirmó. “Hoy estamos con ellos y prometemos unirnos a ellos en aprender a sembrar las simientes del amor de Dios para este mundo con renuncia absoluta y total. Nos unimos a ellos en busca de ejercer un testimonio genuinamente católico del amor y la misericordia de Dios,  el que sabe hasta lo más profundo de su ser que nadie, nadie, esta fuera de la economía de la gracia”.La Diócesis de Quincy ha estado involucrada en litigios de propiedades desde la división de 2008. La fase testimonial de la demanda legal en el tribunal del Estado de Illinois concluyó el 29 de abril y las partes están a la espera de un veredicto, según un boletín informativo publicado en la página web de [la Diócesis de] Chicago. El acuerdo de la reunificación exige que todos los bienes y propiedades de [la Diócesis de] Quincy pasen a formar parte de los de la diócesis reunificada.San Pablo en Peoria dejará de ser catedral para convertirse en una iglesia parroquial de la diócesis reunificada, según los términos del acuerdo, que también  detalla asuntos tales como la integración de los episcopales de Quincy en el gobierno de la diócesis y el trato hacia los empleados diocesanos de Quincy.Springfield, la otra diócesis episcopal de Illinois, no fue parte de las discusiones de la reunificación. Cerca de 5.230 episcopales son miembros bautizados activos en las 36 congregaciones de esa diócesis, y la asistencia dominical promedio en toda la diócesis fue de 1.945 en 2011, según las estadísticas más recientes.La única otra ocasión en que una diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal se reunificó con su diócesis “madre” tuvo lugar en 1943 cuando la entonces Diócesis de Duluth se reunificó con la Diócesis de Minnesota, según los investigadores de los Archivos de la Iglesia Episcopal. Las dos diócesis habían sido creadas en 1895, la de Minnesota con sede en Faribault, en la parte centro sur del estado, y lo que al principio se llamó Distrito Misionero de Duluth con sede en la ciudad de este nombre en el noreste del lago Superior. El distrito se convirtió en diócesis en 1907.Las diócesis de Eau Claire y Fond du Lac, que una vez habían estado unidas con el resto de los episcopales de Wisconsin, estuvieron a punto de crear una nueva diócesis en 2011. Eau Claire se creó por una división de la Diócesis de Milwaukee en 1928. Fond du Lac había sido creada en 1875 de lo que entonces se conocía como la Diócesis de Wisconsin, que se convirtió en Diócesis de Milwaukee en 1886. Una diócesis que incorporara Eau Claire y Fond du Lac habría abarcado las tres cuartas partes del norte de WisconsinDespués que la convención anual de Fond du Lac y una convención especial de Eau Claire parecían haber aprobado el 22 de octubre de 2011 el solicitar de la Convención General de 2012 que aprobara lo que se llamó una “conjunción”, la decisión tuvo que cancelarse. Un  recuento de los votos de Fond du Lac mostró que los primeros resultados de la votación en el orden del laicado, que habían sido de 53 a favor y 51 en contra, eran, realmente, lo contrario: 53 noes y 51 síes.– La Rda.

Albany Bishop William Love to resign in early 2021

first_img Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Featured Events Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry announced today that on October 16, 2020, pursuant to Title IV of the Canons of The Episcopal Church, he and the Rt. Rev. William H. “Bill” Love, Bishop Diocesan of Albany, entered into an Accord to resolve a disciplinary matter that was pending against Bishop Love.  The Accord was approved by the Disciplinary Board for Bishops on October 21, 2020, and became effective on that date.The disciplinary matter that was resolved by the Accord arose out of a Pastoral Direction issued by Bishop Love on November 10, 2018, prohibiting the clergy in his Diocese from utilizing marriage rites for same-sex couples that had been authorized by the Church’s General Convention in 2018.  On January 11, 2019, the Presiding Bishop issued a Restriction on Bishop Love’s Ministry which barred Bishop Love from taking certain actions against Albany clergy while any Title IV matter arising from his Pastoral Direction was proceeding.  The Title IV Church Attorney filed charges against Bishop Love, asserting that his issuance of the Pastoral Direction violated Episcopal Church Canon IV.4.1(c), which requires ordained persons to “abide by the promises and vows made when ordained.”  A Title IV Hearing Panel heard arguments in the matter by virtual means on June 21, 2020.  On October 2, 2020, the Hearing Panel issued a decision on the arguments, concluding that Bishop Love’s actions indeed violated the Canons.  The Panel had not yet issued a final Order resolving the case when the Accord was reached by the Presiding Bishop and Bishop Love and approved by the Disciplinary Board on October 21, 2020.Under the Accord, Bishop Love will resign as Bishop Diocesan of the Diocese of Albany effective February 1, 2021, following a terminal sabbatical to begin on January 1, 2021.  The Presiding Bishop’s Restriction on Bishop Love’s Ministry will remain in effect until February 1, 2021, and Bishop Love has acknowledged that his November 10, 2018 Pastoral Direction will lose force no later than that date.  Bishop Love has agreed to work with the Presiding Bishop’s Office to foster a healthy transition for the Diocese.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry expresses sadness for the pain that has been experienced across the theological spectrum and also his continuing support for the Church’s intention that all persons have access to marriage rites authorized by the Church.  He expresses thanks for Bishop Love’s faithfulness as Bishop of Albany and wishes him well in retirement.  Bishop Curry anticipates a collaborative and respectful transition in episcopal leadership and prays for healing, reconciliation, and mutual flourishing across deeply held theological differences.  To that end, he prays:Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.— Book of Common Prayer, p. 823Se llega a una resolución en un asunto disciplinario que afecta al obispo de AlbanyEl Obispo Primado y el obispo Love llegan a un acuerdo[24 de octubre de 2020] El obispo primado Michael B. Curry anunció en el día de hoy que el 16 de octubre de 2020, de conformidad con el Título IV de los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal, él y el Rvdmo. William H. Love («Bill»), obispo diocesano de Albany, llegaron a un acuerdo para resolver un asunto disciplinario pendiente contra el obispo Love. El acuerdo fue aprobado por la Junta Disciplinaria de Obispos el 21 de octubre de 2020 y entró en vigor en esa fecha.El asunto disciplinario, que fue resuelto por el acuerdo surgió de una directriz pastoral emitida por el obispo Love [solo disponible en inglés] el 10 de noviembre de 2018, en la que prohibía al clero de su diócesis utilizar ritos matrimoniales para parejas del mismo sexo que habían sido autorizados por la Convención General de la Iglesia en 2018. El 11 de enero de 2019, el Obispo Primado emitió una restricción al ministerio del obispo Love en la que le prohibía a éste tomar ciertas decisiones contra el clero de Albany mientras estuviera en proceso cualquier asunto del Título IV derivado de su directriz pastoral. El Abogado de la Iglesia del Título IV presentó cargos contra el obispo Love, afirmando que su emisión de la directriz pastoral violaba el Canon IV.4.1 (c) de la Iglesia Episcopal, que exige que las personas ordenadas «cumplan con las promesas y votos hechos en el momento de su ordenación». Un Panel de Audiencias del Título IV escuchó los argumentos en el asunto por medios virtuales el 21 de junio de 2020. El 2 de octubre de 2020, el Panel de Audiencias emitió una  decisión [solo disponible en inglés] sobre los argumentos, llegando a la conclusión de que las acciones del obispo Love ciertamente violaron los Cánones. El Panel aún no había emitido un veredicto final que resolviera el caso cuando el Obispo Primado y el obispo Love llegaron al acuerdo y la Junta Disciplinaria lo aprobó el 21 de octubre de 2020.Según el acuerdo, el obispo Love renunciará como obispo diocesano de la Diócesis de Albany a partir del 1 de febrero de 2021, luego de un año sabático final que comenzará el 1 de enero de 2021. La restricción del Obispo Primado sobre el ministerio del obispo Love se mantendrá en vigor hasta el 1 de febrero de 2021 y el obispo Love ha reconocido que su directriz pastoral del 10 de noviembre de 2018 perderá vigencia a más tardar en esa fecha. El obispo Love ha convenido en colaborar con la Oficina del Obispo Primado para fomentar una sana transición para la Diócesis.El obispo primado Michael Curry expresa tristeza por el dolor que se ha experimentado en todo el espectro teológico y también su continuo apoyo a la intención de la Iglesia de que todas las personas tengan acceso a los ritos matrimoniales autorizados por la Iglesia. Expresa su agradecimiento por la fidelidad del obispo Love como obispo de Albany y le desea lo mejor en su jubilación. El obispo Curry anticipa una transición colaborativa y respetuosa en el liderazgo episcopal y ora por la recuperación, la reconciliación y el florecimiento mutuo a través de diferencias teológicas profundamente arraigadas. A ese fin, él ora:Concede, oh Dios, que tu santo y vivificador Espíritu anime de tal manera a todo ser humano, que se derrumben las barreras que nos dividen, que desaparezcan las sospechas y que cesen los odios; a fin de que, sanadas nuestras divisiones vivamos en paz y justicia; por Jesucristo nuestro Señor.

Bakkies Botha suspended for nine weeks after headbutt on Jimmy Cowan

first_imgSunday Jul 11, 2010 Bakkies Botha suspended for nine weeks after headbutt on Jimmy Cowan Springbok lock Bakkies Botha has been suspended for nine weeks following his opening minute of the Test headbutt on New Zealands Jimmy Cowan in Auckland on Saturday. He will be out until the end of the Tri Nations.Botha expressed remorse for the attack after appearing before a SANZAR judicial hearing in Auckland earlier today. He said he was deeply upset, but accepted the ruling.“I sincerely regret the incident. I have let my team, my country and family down and I have done an injustice to the Springbok jersey and what it stands for,” Botha said.“I apologise to Jimmy Cowan and the New Zealand rugby public for what happened. Rugby is a physical sport but it has to be played within the boundaries and spirit of the law. I truly regret my actions and will make sure that I put the extended time away from the game to positive use and return to playing with the right attitude”.The incident occurred in the first minute after Botha had charged down a Cowan kick. He then chased, but was held back by the Kiwi halfback. He waved his arms in protestation, but his claims for a penalty were ignored by referee Alan Lewis. He then tackled Cowan and followed up with the head.It was missed by the officials at the time, but the headbutt was replayed multiple times, both on tv and in the stadium. It was deemed to be middle of the range in terms of seriousness, but Bothas disciplinary record contributed towards the lengthy ban.“Hes got a history. Hes probably lucky he didnt get more than nine weeks,” New Zealand coach Graeme Henry said. “It was just one of those things that happens in a game which is not part of the game and has been dealt with correctly.”The South African Rugby Unions Manager of National Teams, Andy Marinos, expressed their disappointment at Botha’s actions.“SARU views any incident of foul play in a very serious light. Bakkies remains an important player in Springbok rugby and I have discussed with him the extent of his actions and the implications it could have on the team, himself personally and his family,” Marinos said.Captain John Smit summed things up best. “Only Bakkies can explain what goes on in his head.”The two sides go into battle again next weekend in Wellington, for game two of the Tri Nations. :: Related Posts :: All Blacks power past the Springboks in Auckland Time: 01:09ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Homeland Security threatens to expel Haitians

first_imgJohn Kelly, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has told the 58,000 Haitians living in the U.S. under Temporary Protective Status to get their travel documents in order and be prepared to leave in six months. The TPS allows these Haitians to work, drive and pay taxes in the U.S.Kelly claims that the economy and social conditions in Haiti have improved so much that this is a reasonable time limit. But his order is widely condemned as unjustifiably short by the Haitian community. Conditions in Haiti are still dire in many ways.While the rubble from the 2005 earthquake has finally been cleared, the tens of thousands of houses destroyed in the quake have not been replaced. Housing all over Haiti is in desperately short supply.Cholera, introduced into Haiti by United Nations forces in 2010, will remain even when Minustah, the military occupation of Haiti under U.N. command, is replaced in October by a smaller “police” force. The cholera epidemic killed close to 9,000 Haitians, with hundreds of thousands sickened. All that had a consequently profound impact on the economy.In 2016, Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti’s breadbasket in the southwest, its most productive agricultural area. Nine hundred people died and tens of thousands lost their homes. Roads, bridges and all kinds of economically necessary facilities were either damaged or destroyed. Food prices in Haiti spiked; high prices have continued..The government of Haiti controls the price and distribution of gas and diesel. In May, it significantly raised the price of these items — more than 60 percent for gasoline. This will produce an additional general price rise in all manner of goods, from rice to oil and toilet paper.Since May Day, the textile workers at the maquiladoras in the Sonapi Industrial Park in Port-au-Prince have risen up and been joined by workers in the Caracol Industrial Park on the northcast coast near the Dominican Republic border.These workers are demanding that the minimum wage for garment manufacturing be more than doubled, from 300 gourdes to 800 gourdes a day — 300 gourdes come to less than $5 U.S. and 800 gourdes come to around $13 U.S..Factory owners are opposed to the increase on the grounds that it will reduce Haiti’s attractiveness to investment in “low-cost” manufactured goods. They want the so-called Superior Council of Salaries to maintain the current low-wage schedule.But the workers have taken to the streets and confronted the policies and the cops.Protests have grown so intense and militant that the bosses have had to close the plants from time to time over the past two weeks. President Jovenel Moïse gave a televised address on May 25 urging a “dialog” between the bosses and the workers.Meanwhile, the tens of thousands of Haitian-Dominicans expelled from the Dominican Republic in the past two years are stuck in camps on the Dominican-Haitian border. The Haitian economy still has not been able to absorb them.For the U.S. head of Homeland Security to declare the economy of Haiti has “improved” ignores the hundreds of workers already in the streets who are protesting being paid less than $5 a day, It also ignores the fact that 25 percent of Haiti’s gross domestic product comes from money sent home from its workers in the U.S. According to the World Bank, this is the highest percentage of any Latin American, Central American or Caribbean country. (tinyurl.com/y76quypw)If the U.S. expels the 58,000 Haitians now living under TPS protection, it will be another act in the long line of U.S. crimes against Haiti, dating back to the first U.S. blockade imposed on the country in 1804, when the Haitian people won their independence from slavery and colonialism.One small act of reparation would be to grant Indefinite Temporary Protective Status in the U.S. to any Haitian who wants TPS. It is their right.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The court dismissed the appeal against Madhya Pradesh High Court judgment upholding their conviction under Section 148, 302 read with Section 149 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860. Karulal, Amra, Kachru, Suratram and Bhagirath were accused of murder of one Madhavji.The bench, while addressing the contentions raised by the accused, briefly discussed the precedents and law on evidentiary value of a related witness by referring to the decisions in Dalip Singh & Ors. Vs. State of Punjab AIR 1953 SC 364, Khurshid Ahmed vs. State of Jammu and Kashmir (2018) 7 SCC 429, State of Uttar Pradesh vs. Samman Dass (1972) 3 SCC 201. The court noted that, being related to the deceased does not necessarily mean that they will falsely implicate innocent persons. The court added that an unrelated witness had deposed supporting the testimony of related witnesses in this case. The bench observed:”The above precedents make it amply clear that the testimony of the related witness, if found to be truthful, can be the basis of conviction and we have every reason to believe that PW3 and PW12 were immediately present at the spot and identified the accused with various deadly weapons in their hands”Addressing the contention on past enemity between accused and witnesses, the bench, referred to the decision in Sushil & Ors. Vs. State of U.P 1995) Supp 1 SCC 363., and observed:”If the witnesses are otherwise trustworthy, past enmity by itself will not discredit any testimony. In fact the history of bad blood gives a clear motive for the crime. Therefore this aspect does not in our assessment, aid the defence in the present matter”Another contention raised in this case was that few of the witnesses had not supported the prosecution case and were declared to be hostile. While dismissing the appeal, the bench observed:”But there are enough material evidence and trustworthy testimonies which clearly support the case against the accused and the prosecution need not fail on this count alone. Some witness may not support the prosecution story for their own reasons and in such situation, it is necessary for the Court to determine whether the other available evidence comprehensively proves the charge. In this case, it is seen that the prosecution version is cogent and supported by three eyewitnesses who have given a consistent account of the incident. Their testimonies are corroborated by the medical evidence. The learned Trial Judge had elaborately discussed the evidence of both sides and came to a logical conclusion which inspires confidence. We are therefore of the view that the hostile witnesses will not affect the conviction of the appellants.”Case name: Karulal vs. State of MPCase no.: Criminal Appeal No. 316 of 2011 Coram: Justices NV Ramana, Surya Kant and Hrishikesh RoyCounsel: Advocates M.

Metabolic demand, oxygen supply, and critical temperatures in the Antarctic bivalve Laternula elliptica

first_imgOxygen consumption ((M) over dot o(2)), heartbeat rate and form, and circulating hemolymph oxygen content were measured in relation to temperature in the large Antarctic infaunal bivalve Laternula elliptica. After elevations in temperature from 0degrees to 3degrees, 6degrees, and then 9degreesC, (M) over dot o(2) and heartbeat rate rose to new levels, whereas. maximum circulating hemolymph oxygen content fell. At 0degreesC, (M) over dot o(2) was 19.6 mumol O-2 h(-1) for a standard animal of 2-g tissue. ash-free dry mass, which equates to a 8.95-g tissue dry-mass or 58.4-g tissue wet-mass animal. Elevation of metabolism following temperature change had acute Q(10) values between 4.1 and 5, whereas acclimated figures declined from 3.4 (between 0degrees and 3degreesC) to 2.2 (3degrees-6degreesC) and 1.9 (6degrees-9degreesC). Heartbeat rate showed no acclimation following temperature elevations, with Q(10) values of 3.9, 3.2, and 4.3, respectively. Circulating hemolymph oxygen content declined from 0degrees to 3degrees and 6degreesC but stayed at a constant Po-2 (73-78 mmHg) and constant proportion (similar to50%) of the oxygen content of the ambient water. At 9degreesC, (M) over dot o(2) and heartbeat rate both peaked at values 3.3 times those. measured at 0degreesC, which may indicate aerobic scope in this species. After these peaks, both measures declined rapidly over the ensuing 5 d to the lowest measured in the study, and the bivalves began to die. Hemolymph oxygen content fell dramatically at 9degreesC to values between 2% and 12% of ambient water O-2 content and had a maximum Po-2 of around 20 mmHg. These data indicate an experimental upper lethal temperature of 9degreesC and a critical temperature, where a long-term switch to anaerobic metabolism probably occurs, of around 6degreesC for L. elliptica. Concurrent measures of mitochondrial function in the same species had indicated strong thermal sensitivity in proton leakage costs, and our data support the hypothesis that as temperature rises, mitochondrial maintenance costs rapidly outstrip oxygen supply mechanisms in cold stenothermal marine species.last_img read more
