Enter Your Email Address Will the Saga share price reach 500p in 2021? Image source: Getty Images. Shareholders in Saga (LSE: SAGA) have had a rough ride over the past couple of years. It had already warned on profits in 2019, even before its travel business was hit by pandemic. The travel and insurance group focusses on a target market of older customers. They are often well-heeled, so the business model of specialising in this group and gaining their loyalty makes sense.The Saga share price has doubled since October. But can it now double again and reach 500p in 2021?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…The case for SagaThe basic business model of the company is one of its attractive features. Older people who have saved money for decades are a good target market for high-end travel as well as insurance products. By focusing on them, Saga is able to build its reputation among such customers. It can understand their needs better and so respond well to them.For many decades the model worked well. However, over the past couple of years the company stuttered. The pandemic impacted its travel business heavily. However, the resilient insurance business provides some counterbalance. Last week the company reported that even with the pandemic headwinds, it expects to report a full-year underlying profit before tax.Given the current Saga share price, that will likely tempt some bargain hunters to bet on a price appreciation.I won’t touch Saga yetBy contrast, I have no plans to buy Saga shares for the foreseeable future. The shape and size of its recovery just remains too unclear. I also think the pandemic has shown up a weakness in its business model – the reliance on persuading shiploads of older people to travel together. That worked well before the pandemic, but the world has changed. It remains to be seen how long it will be before demand for cruises among more vulnerable holidaymakers returns. It bought two ships over the past couple of years, so the longer the older cruise market is weak, the more Saga will suffer.The company has said it does not plan to pay dividends for the next few years. Based on its goal of reducing leverage, I don’t expect any dividends until 2024 at the earliest. That damages the investment case for the company. That is one reason I think share price recovery will be slower than it otherwise might.The Sage share price isn’t just about demand recoveryMeanwhile, although the company is in compliance with its banking covenants, its balance sheet remains weighed down by debt. So any recovery in the travel business won’t necessarily be reflected in short-term value creation for shareholders. The Saga share price has been damaged by weak performance, but it won’t necessarily jump up just because business performance improves.To get to 500p, I expect the company would need to show rapid recovery in its travel business, as well as continued strength in insurance. Even then I think it would be a rich valuation. I don’t expect cruise demand among older travellers to recover quickly, although widespread vaccination could help bring back demand sooner than I expect. I do not therefore see clear drivers to push the share price to 500p this year. That is why I won’t be buying Saga shares any time soon.

400,000 workers hit the streets in France

first_imgFrench workers flood streets to protest capitalist austerity measures.“Badly paid, scorned, our jobs in jeopardy, layoffs, cuts in sick pay, tax hikes, increased required deductions for teachers’ pensions, salary freezes” are some of the reasons the Federation of United Unions (FSU), one of the major unions representing teachers in France, gave for a one-day walkout Oct. 10.There are 5.4 million public service workers in France, in areas such as the railroads and subways, air traffic controllers, teachers and health care workers from doctors to porters. Even in privatized sectors like the post office and the telephone system, there are still pockets of public workers.These public workers all have similar grievances to the teachers and at least 400,000 of them walked out Oct. 10 to challenge the government of President Emmanuel Macron and its big-business allies. The latter explicitly have told public service workers that they have to do more with less. They plan to cut 120,000 jobs in the next 5 years.According to the General Confederation of Workers (CGT), marches and protests took place in 90 communities throughout France: 45,000 marched in Paris; between 6,400 and 12,000 in Lyons; more than 10,000 in Bordeaux; 9,000 in Rouen; and 3,000 in Saint-Denis on the French-owned island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean.For the first time in more than a decade, all the French union confederations participated. It’s true that Workers Force (FO) was allied with the CGT in 2016 to militate against the “Socialist” government’s attack on French labor. Lately, however, only the CGT and some smaller confederations, like Solidaires, have resisted the attacks from Macron’s Forward the Republic Party (LREM).The leadership of the French Democratic Confederation of Labor (CFDT), the labor confederation vying with the CGT to become the largest, most influential in France, has been under increasing pressure from its base to actively oppose the new labor law imposed by the LREM government. The CFDT has also seen its allies in the French “Socialist” Party, a party which has often run France’s bourgeois imperialism, crushed in the last election.All of the major progressive parties on the French left had contingents in the Paris march — the French Communist Party (PCF), the New Anticapitalist Party (NPA) and Unbowed France (FI) were the most prominent, but even the Socialist Party had a presence.Unbowed France has been particularly active. François Raffin, one of its deputies, a prominent leader of Nuits Debout and a well-known movie director, took the floor in Parliament on Oct. 11 to accuse Macron, his prime minister Edouard Philippe and some other top government ministers of personally attempting to cover up a scandal in Sanofi. Sanofi, a giant French pharmaceutical company, has been charged with selling a dangerous drug called Dékapine. (FranceSoir, Oct. 12)Macron has also been forced to defend himself over his characterization of workers in France as “slackers,” more interested in “going to brothels” than going to work.The CGT has called for another strike and demonstration Oct. 19, and there will be an all-union meeting to plan further actions in early November.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Community Engagement Programming to offer alternative spring break

Dylan Guesthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dylan-guest/ ReddIt Twitter Dylan Guest Dylan Guesthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dylan-guest/center_img printTCU’s Community Engagement Programming will be offering an alternative spring break trip next semester to Houston next semester.Students will be working with St. Bernard’s Project (SBP), an organization that helps rebuild homes for families impacted by Hurricane Harvey.Marit Winborn, the Community Engagement coordinator, said TCU students that attend will have an opportunity to impact a community while working alongside a nonprofit organization. “The reason this service project was chosen is because TCU students will have the opportunity to acquire hands-on skills while also giving back to the community,” Winborn said. Although this kind of work may be new to some students, no experience is required to sign up and students will be trained on the first day.“Students will literally be helping families build their homes from the ground up, and this may include hanging insulation, painting, priming, hanging trim, texturing, laying floors and many other things,” Winborn said. There are 10 spaces available for students. The deadline to apply is Jan. 1, and the application can be found on Community Engagement’s page on Engage.The trip will cost $350, which includes transportation, most meals, lodging and the volunteer experience. Students must pay a $50 deposit by Feb. 5 to hold their spot, and the remaining $300 balance is due by Feb. 10. Need-based waivers will be available, however, and students can select the option on their application.The group will travel in vans, which Wiborn said will give students an opportunity to get to know each other. In Houston, a local church that has places to sleep and take showers, as well as game rooms, will host students.Students will also have free time in Houston, where they will be able to explore and choose activities they would like to do for one day.Students from other universities will also be present, giving TCU students a chance to connect with them and the community members and SBP staff.Winborn said he believes students will learn a lot from this trip.“I want students to walk away from this trip understanding what it is like to interact with people who are different than them as well as understand what it is like to serve others,” Winborn said. “It is important to learn how to put others before ourselves, as that is how we grow and become active citizens in the community.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Previous articleVolleyball outmatched by No.1 Baylor in season finaleNext articleWomen’s basketball tops Boise State in Maggie Dixon Classic to remain undefeated Dylan Guest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR National Parks road trip to be held during spring break Linkedin Health, communication and media: New minor is on the way Dylan Guesthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dylan-guest/ Dylan Guesthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dylan-guest/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Linkedinlast_img read more

“Project Has No Feature Of Essentiality Of Service To Public At Large”: Plea In Delhi High Court Seeks Suspension Of Central Vista Redevelopment Project

first_imgTop Stories”Project Has No Feature Of Essentiality Of Service To Public At Large”: Plea In Delhi High Court Seeks Suspension Of Central Vista Redevelopment Project Shreya Agarwal4 May 2021 1:20 AMShare This – xA petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court seeking suspension of all kinds of construction activity in relation to the Central Vista Redevelopment Project in compliance of the orders issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority in wake of the covid 19 surge in the national capital.The petition moved by Anya Malhotra and Sohail Hashmi highlights that the construction of the aforesaid project has a “super spreading potential and threat” to the workers who are being exposed to the infection on a daily basis while working and that too without payment.Calling it “relentless, unmindful and reckless act” of the Union of India and Central Public Works Department, the plea states that such an act of carrying on the Project posing threat to the lives of the citizens of Delhi has “the potential of being a super spreader and is in clear breach and violation of the Orders passed by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority.””The construction of the Project cannot be equated to an essential activity. There is no exigency whatsoever in the construction of the Project and there is no reason why the same cannot be suspended at a time when Delhi is facing an unprecedented health crisis. There is no rational basis to differentiate between workers engaged in the construction of the Project and workers engaged in any other construction work. It cannot be stated that the construction work being carried out as a part of the Project is any more essential than the construction of other public services.” The plea states further.During the course of hearing today before the division bench comprising of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh, while the bench showed it’s non inclination of issuing notice in the plea, the Bench listed the matter for further hearing on May 17.The petition was vehemently opposed by ASG Chetan Sharma appearing on behalf of the Centre whereas Senior Advocate Siddharth Luthra appeared for the petitioner.The petition seeks the following prayers:-Issue a Writ/Order/Direction in the nature of mandamus and command Respondent No. 1 & 2 to forthwith halt / suspend all construction activity of the Central Vista Avenue Redevelopment Project awarded to Respondent No. 4 in compliance with Orders issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority during the subsistence of the peak phase of the pandemic.- Issue a Writ/Order/Direction in the nature of mandamus commanding and directing Respondent No. 3 to forthwith withdraw and rescind the Movement Pass dated 19.04.2021.- In the event that this Hon’ble Court is pleased to grant the relief prayed for in Prayer (i) above, issue directions toRespondent No. 1, 2 and 4 to ensure that all workers are paidtheir full wages, notwithstanding suspension work, and to payand release arrears of wages to the workers/laborers engagedin the Central Vista Avenue Redevelopment Project.The Supreme Court in January this year upheld the Central Government’s plan for construction of the Central Vista project and the government’s proposal to construct a new Parliament in Lutyen’s Delhi.Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna pronounced the judgement, with Justices Khanwilkar and Maheshwari forming the majority, and with Justice Khanna pronouncing a separate judgement.The court had, on November 5, 2020, reserved judgment on these batch of petitions challenging the Rs. 20,000 crore Central Vista project, involving renovation and redevelopment of approximately 86 acres of land in the heart of Lutyens Delhi, marked by structures like the Parliament, Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate, North Block and South Block amongst others.Edited by Nupur ThapliyalTagsDelhi High Court COVID -19 Chief Justice DN Patel Justice Jasmeet Singh #Central Vista Project Next Storylast_img read more

100-plus participate in free prostate screenings

first_img “Family history means father, brother or grandfather,” Bivins said. “These screenings are highly recommended for all African American men because prostate cancer incidence and death rates are higher than in Caucasian men.”Men in the at-risk categories should have annual checkups that include screenings for prostate cancer.Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men and is the second leading cause of cancer death, behind only lung cancer. About one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. One man in 38 will die of prostate cancer.The American Cancer Society estimates that, in 2015, about 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and that there will be 27,540 deaths from prostate cancer. The prostate cancer incidence in Alabama is higher than the United States rate as is the prostate cancer mortality rate.Prostate cancer can be a serious disease but most men with prostate cancer do not die from it. More than 2.9 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. Messenger photo/Jaine TreadwellDrs. Michael Bivins, left, and Tom Moody, right, Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham conducted free prostate cancer screenings at the Pike County Health Department Saturday. Mike Amos, host of Troy Cable’s “Today in LA” joined Bivins and Moody in recognizing the importance for early detection for prostate cancer.More than 100 men participated in the free prostate cancer screenings offered by Urology Centers of Alabama in Birmingham at the Pike County Health Department Saturday.Sherry Wilson said 47 percent of those tested in the annual free screenings were participating for the first time. Fifty-six percent of those tested were African Americans.Wilson said there is a higher incidence of prostate cancer among African Americans than Caucasians, and it is encouraging that more African Americans are being tested.

first_imgScott Olson/Getty ImagesBY: BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC NEWS(MINNEAPOLIS) — Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo took the witness stand in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin on Monday and testified the former officer violated numerous use-of-force and ethics policies in the fatal arrest of George Floyd, including the force’s underlying motto to “protect with courage and serve with compassion.”Arradondo, the highest-profile witness yet to testify for the prosecution, went over page after page of his police force’s policies on use-of-force, de-escalation and best practices, some of which he personally wrote.Prosecutor Steve Schleicher asked Arradondo if he would describe the force Chauvin used on Floyd on May 25, 2020, as proper and according to the training of Minneapolis police officers.“I absolutely do not agree with that,” Arradondo answered. “That action is not de-escalation and when we talk about the framework of our sanctity of life and when we talk about the principles and values that we have that action goes contrary to what we’re taught.”Arradondo said he drew his conclusions based on police body-camera, surveillance and bystander video he reviewed in the hours after Floyd was pronounced dead.After being shown a photo, described as “Exhibit 17,” of Chauvin digging his knee into Floyd’s neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds while the handcuffed 46-year-old Black man was prone on the ground with two other officers holding him down, the chief said the tactic was not the type of “conscious neck restraint” his officers have been trained to use.“A conscious neck restraint by policy mentions light to moderate pressure. When I look at Exhibit 17 and when I look at the facial expression of Mr. Floyd, that does not appear in any way, shape or form that that is light to moderate pressure,” he said.Asked if the restraint Chauvin used on Floyd was a violation of department policy, Arradondo answered, “I absolutely agree that violates our policy.”“It has to be objectively reasonable. We have to take into account the circumstances, information, the threat to the officer, the threat to others, the severity of that. So that is not part of our policy. That is not what we teach and that should be condoned,” he added.Schleicher asked Arradondo if he has an opinion on when Chauvin should have stopped using the restraint on Floyd.“Once Mr. Floyd, and this is based on my viewing of the videos, had stopped resisting and certainly once he was in distress and trying to verbalize that, that should have stopped,” Arradondo said. “To continue to apply that level of force to a person proned out, handcuffed behind his back, that in no way shape or form is anything that is by policy. It’s not part of our training and it is certainly not part of our ethics or values.”Arradondo also said that it was troubling to see that Chauvin, and the other officers who restrained Floyd, failed to provide first aid even though they had checked for a pulse and not found one.“I agree the defendant violated our policy in terms of rendering aid,” Arradondo said.Arradondo was asked to read a key section of his department’s procedure manual as Schleicher sought to establish how it pertained to the encounter Floyd had with Chauvin and three other officers involved in the arrest, but was precluded from discussing his decision in front of the jury.“Be courteous, respectful, polite and professional. Ensure that the length of any detention is no longer than necessary to take appropriate action for the known or suspected offense,” Arradondo said as he read the training manual.Arradondo also went into great detail about the de-escalation procedures officers are mandated to follow, saying it’s really about attempting to stretch out “time, options and resources.”He said officers are trained to know how to assess a subject they are encountering for medical conditions, mental impairment, developmental disabilities and whether they are in the throes of a behavioral crisis or under the influence of drugs. The officers are also retrained on this annually, Arradondo said.He said Floyd did not appear to be a threat to the officers or other citizens during the incident, and added that Floyd should have never been arrested for the minor offense of trying to buy a pack of cigarettes with a phony $20 bill, which is a misdemeanor.He said that instead of de-escalating the situation, Chauvin’s actions escalated it.“It’s really primarily trying to provide an opportunity to stabilize a situation, to de-escalate it. The goal is having a safe and peaceful outcome,” Arradondo testified, reading from the department’s code of ethics.In one dramatic moment, Arradondo pointed to Chauvin sitting at the defense table and identified him as wearing a blue suit, light blue tie and white shirt.The chief terminated Chauvin’s 19-year-career as a police officer a day after his encounter with Floyd.During cross-examination, Chauvin’s attorney, Eric Nelson, attempted to undermine Arradondo’s earlier testimony, by asking when the last time the chief had made an arrest of a combative person.“It’s been a number of years,” Arradondo said.Head police trainer testifiesMinneapolis police Inspector Katie Blackwell, who was the department’s training commander at the time of Floyd’s death, testified that Chauvin was fully trained in the most current procedures and practices, and had undergone an in-service retraining in everything from defensive tactics to first aid in March of 2020.Blackwell testified that she has known Chauvin for nearly 20 years and even selected him to be a field training officer. She said Chauvin went through the department’s field-training officer program in 2018.“We were trying to make sure that they understood what the recruits are being taught because they’re going to evaluate them out there and they’re the closest thing to a supervisor that that young recruit officer has,” Blackwell said.She was shown a photo of Chauvin kneeling on Floyd’s neck and asked by Schleicher if that was a training technique taught at the time she was overseeing the training unit.“It is not,” Blackwell responded.When asked why, Blackwell said, “I don’t know what kind of improvised position that is. So, it’s not what we train.”Doctor who pronounced Floyd deadDr. Bradford Lagenfeld, who declared Floyd dead, was the first witness called to testify for the protection on Monday and said Floyd likely died from asphyxia.Langenfeld, who was a senior resident in the emergency room at Hennepin County Medical Center in May 2020, when Floyd died, detailed the feverish pace he and his team took in performing a series of procedures to determine if there was even a chance to revive Floyd, at one point cutting open the patient’s chest.Langenfeld was the senior resident on duty in the emergency room when George Floyd was brought to Hennepin County Medical Center. He took over Floyd’s care from the paramedics who testified last week that Floyd’s heart had “flatlined” and that, in layman’s terms, he was dead when they transported him to the hospital.The physician testified that he believed, based on the tests he was able to run at the hospital and also the reports he received from the paramedics, that the primary reason for Floyd’s cardiac arrest was a lack of oxygen, or asphyxia, and not a heart attack or drug overdose as the defense contends.He also said the lack of first aid rendered to Floyd as the officers waited for paramedics to arrive dramatically reduced the chances of reviving Floyd, saying that survival drops 10% to 15% each minute CPR is not administered.On cross-examination, Nelson attempted to tie Floyd’s death to fentanyl and methamphetamine — drugs that were found in his system during an autopsy. Langenfeld agreed with Nelson that the use of those drugs can cause shortness of breath and suppress a person’s breathing.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
