BA shares hit as Heathrow chaos drags on

first_imgMonday 20 December 2010 9:11 pm Show Comments ▼ SHARES in British Airways plummeted yesterday thanks to the major disruption to its flights from Heathrow. The firm, which is Heathrow’s biggest operator, cancelled 70 of its 130 flights out of the airport yesterday, leaving thousands stranded.BA is currently losing up to £10m a day, according to analyst estimates – close to the losses suffered when all flights were grounded during the Icelandic volcanic eruption in April. “We have BA down to deliver revenues of around £27m a day in this quarter so assuming some 70 per cent of that is fixed cost it is probably losing about £8m a day of profit,” said Davy Stockbrokers analyst Stephen Furlong, adding that the majority of BA’s profit comes from its Heathrow operations.“It depends on the percentage of longhaul flights BA have operated but I think they are probably losing around £10m a day,” said Oddo Securities analyst Yan Derocles.A spokesperson for the airline said it was too early to calculate the costs. “Our priority is to fly as many customers as we can before Christmas,” he said.

Euro falls on back of German data

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Monday 7 February 2011 8:41 pm THE euro dropped to a two-week low against the dollar yesterday slipping 0.2 per cent to $1.3551, after month-on-month German industrial orders fell by 3.4 per cent in December.The soft data from the Eurozone’s powerhouse economy prompted investors to book profits after the euro’s new year rally. But, German new orders were up by almost 20 per cent compared to December 2009, and the monthly data was an “expected correction” following November’s surge, according to ING’s Carsten Brzeski. “German industry’s positive trend is unlikely to reverse,” he said.

Customers could suffer in long run

first_img Tags: NULL OFCOM likes to present itself as a customer champion. Yesterday, it said its decision to slash mobile termination rates (MTRs) would “benefit consumers”. But despite the quango’s well-meant intentions, many consumers will soon be worse off as a result of these changes. That’s because MTRs – the wholesale charges made by mobile operators on those who piggyback on their network – disproportionately hit landline customers. Mobile customers will also benefit to a certain degree – especially if their friends and family are on other networks – although any gain is likely to be outweighed by costs elsewhere, as mobile operators operators hike other charges to protect their revenues. Currently, the UK still makes more landline calls than mobile ones, but only just: 53 per cent of calls were made on a landline in the second-quarter of 2010, the most recently available figures. So Ofcom can claim to be on the side of the majority. However, as everyone knows, consumers are increasingly using their mobile phone as the primary means of making voice calls. According to Ofcom’s own statistics, mobiles will account for a higher volume of voice calls than landlines by the first quarter of 2012, if not sooner. Meanwhile, Pay as You Go mobile users – who make very few calls but earn revenues for the operator by receiving them – will get less good deals. These are normally children, who are given “safety” mobiles by their parents, and the less well-off. That will be compounded by the increasingly long contracts that customers are being forced into, as network operators seek to claw back the costs of ever more sophisticated contracts. Maybe Ofcom should have left well alone.

In support of this proposition, he relied on an Allahabad High Court judgment in (2001) Cr. Law Journal 2058 (Ravindra Kumar Sharma vs. State).Taking note of this submission, the High Court noted that the accused in the said (Allahabad HC) case was entitled to protection of sanction under the provisions of Indian penal code as well as under the provisions of PC Act   and in the instant case, the petitioner is not entitled to any protection under the provisions of Indian penal code. In the said case, there was application of mind of the authorities in connection with sanction for prosecution and in the present case there is absence of sanction for prosecution and not refusal of sanction for prosecution, it said.Holding thus, the High Court refused his plea to quash the charge framed against him.While dismissing the SLP filed by him, the bench observed that it does not find any infirmity in the view taken by the High Court. It said:”We decline to deviate from the view taken by the High Court that the charge against the petitioner for offence punishable under the Indian Penal Code can continue irrespective of the fact that sanction in respect of offence punishable under Prevention of Corruption Act,  is not forthcoming. To that extent, we find no infirmity in the conclusion reached by the High Court. Our understanding of the impugned judgment is that the High Court has made it clear that if sanction to prosecute the petitioner for offence punishable under Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 is not or has not been granted, the question of proceeding against the petitioner for that charge does not arise. This aspect be borne in mind by the Trial Court while proceeding with the trial against the petitioner.”Case name: SATYABRAT GUPTA vs. THE STATE OF JHARKHANDCase no.: SLP (Crl.)

South Dakota AG Jason Ravnsborg faces 3 misdemeanor charges for fatal crash

first_imgBlake David Taylor/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(HYDE COUNTY, S.D.) — South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg faces three misdemeanor charges after fatally striking a pedestrian on a highway in September, officials announced Thursday.The charges include operating a motor vehicle while using a mobile device, lane driving violation and careless driving, Emily Sovell, the Sully County state’s attorney and Hyde County deputy state’s attorney in South Dakota, said during a press briefing.Ravnsborg, 44, was not on his cell phone at the time of the accident but was outside the lanes of travel, Sovell said, when he hit the 55-year-old victim, Joseph Boever, in Hyde County in central South Dakota on Sept. 12.An investigation completed a month after the crash initially determined that Ravnsborg was distracted when he struck Boever with his 2011 Ford Taurus. But on Thursday, Beadle County State’s Attorney Michael Moore said that at the time of impact, Ravnsborg was not a distracted driver.“We know that because his phones were analyzed,” Moore said, noting that Ravnsborg had two cell phones on him at the time. “His phones were locked approximately 1 minute and 15 seconds prior to the impact.”The accident did not meet the conditions for manslaughter, Sovell announced, noting that toxicology reports previously released showed Ravnsborg was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.“For vehicular homicide in South Dakota, it requires that one be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or substances in a manner and a degree prohibited by law, without design to affect death, but that ultimately after negligent actions, results in the death of another human being,” Sovell said. “That’s simply not applicable in this case.”Sovell stressed that the investigation of the high-ranking official was “very, very thorough.”“There was no delay by the prosecutors,” she said. “It was a smart decision for prosecutors to await all of the evidence before we came to our final decision in this case.”The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation headed the investigation, and the South Dakota Highway Patrol provided accident reconstruction, Sovell said. The state’s attorneys for Beadle and Pennington counties in South Dakota also reviewed the case, she said.Moore called it a “tragic accident.”“The victim’s remedy is in civil court, not criminal court,” Beadle County’s state’s attorney said during the briefing.The maximum penalty for each charge if convicted is 30 days in jail, a $500 fine or both. A special judge will likely be appointed, and Ravnsborg will be summoned to court “at that point in time,” Sovell said.In a statement, Ravnsborg said this has been a “difficult and trying time for everyone involved.”“I appreciate, more than ever, that the presumption of innocence placed within our legal system continues to work,” he said. “I have always practiced this in my professional life and I understand it even better now as I see that we live in a society where every person enjoys the protection of the law.“I have and will continue to pray for Joe Boever and his family,” the statement continued. “I cannot imagine their pain and loss and I do send my deepest condolences to them.”Ravnsborg was alone while driving west in a rural area on U.S. Highway 14, about a mile west of Highmore, South Dakota, when the accident occurred.Investigators were unable to determine how long he was outside the lane of travel and if Ravnsborg realized that he was, Moore said.Ravnsborg told authorities he initially thought he hit a deer. He previously disclosed that he called 911. He said he searched a ditch with the Hyde County sheriff using a cell phone flashlight looking for the deer at around 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 12. He said he discovered Boever’s body when he returned to the scene the next day and reported his discovery to the sheriff. On Thursday, Sovell and Moore confirmed that sequence of events.Boever was carrying a light while walking on the shoulder of Highway 14, which measures about 10.5 feet, when he was struck, authorities said in November. The initial cause of death was listed as traumatic injuries — both internal and external.The Boever family was informed of the charging decision earlier Thursday, Moore said.“They obviously don’t like our decision in this case, but as we all know, victims don’t make this decision,” he said.Ravnsborg, who was elected in 2018, was not placed under administrative leave and continued to work after the crash.The attorney general has a string of previous driving violations, according to state records. He pleaded guilty to speeding six times between 2014 and 2018 and paid fines between $19 and $79, according to state records.ABC News’ Karma Allen, Joshua Hoyos, Julia Jacobo, Jen Leong and Ivan Pereira contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

National tenant background checks system for letting agents launched

first_imgHome » News » National tenant background checks system for letting agents launched previous nextProducts & ServicesNational tenant background checks system for letting agents launchedNew service aims to prevent rogue tenants hiding their activities from industry.Nigel Lewis27th March 201701,489 Views A Nottingham-based software company is to launch a national tenant background checks sharing service for letting agents operating in the private rental sector.TenantPro is piloting its background checks service for free in Nottingham but is to roll out the service nationally later, it says. The company claims the software will enable letting agents to share information about tenant behaviour and performance against their contractual obligations, and enable tenants to submit their rental history too.“Many tenants have no accurate rental history,” the company says.“Agents often don’t have sufficient information to make informed decisions about the suitability of a tenant, current checks in place are lengthy and time consuming and often involve writing or telephoning previous landlords, and the information available is often incomplete or missing.”The company says its software will be able to pick up rogue tenants who behave badly and then, by saying they have been living with parents or partners, avoid disclosing past poor behaviour such as abandoned tenancies and damage.Founded in June last year, the company is headed up by lettings agency owner Andrew Shipman, website building agency owner John Richardson, and mortgage advising company founder Aaron Northridge (pictured).Data protectionBut the company faces a challenge – to allay fears over data protection, as highlighted by readers of local paper The Nottingham Post earlier this month.Director John Richardson told the paper that the company “takes its obligations under the Data Protection Act very seriously…we have spoken to the ICO [Information Commissioner’s Office] on several occasions, as the business was set up, ensure that we fully understand our obligations”.He said data protection has been built into its products and processes and will be a key element of its staff training.Nottingham Aaron Northridge Andrew Shipman.

Iran tests another naval missile

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Iran tests another naval missile March 10, 2017 Iran tests another naval missile Iran carried out another test firing of a naval missile with the successful launch of the Hormuz-2 missile, AFP reported citing Iranian media.According to AFP, General Amir-Ali Hadjizadeh, commander of the air wing of the Revolutionary Guards, told Iranian media that the missile destroyed a target that was 250 kilometres (155 miles) away in the Gulf of Oman.The launch of Hormuz-2 comes just weeks after the Iranian Navy tested the Nasr cruise missile during Iran’s annual Velayat drill that was held in the second half of February in the Strait of Hormuz, the Sea of Oman and North of the Indian Ocean.Iran’s missile launches are taking place in a time of heightened tensions between Iran and the U.S. Navy ships operating in the region.Less than a week ago, Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps boats harassed a group of U.S. and Royal Navy vessels. On March 4, U.S. Navy’s missile launch tracking ship USNS Invincible was forced to change course in order to avoid collision with one of the boats during the incident.Countering reports made by U.S. officials, an Iranian commander blamed the U.S. for the incident claiming the USNS Invincible changed course towards Iranian boats.
