Wall Street rises on strong retail figures

first_imgThursday 3 February 2011 7:20 pm Share Wall Street rises on strong retail figures whatsapp US stocks ended near the session’s highs yesterday, with investors favouring shares of retailers after encouraging chain-store sales raised confidence ahead of today’s jobs report.The Morgan Stanley retail index rose 2.8 per cent, driven by companies such as Sears Holdings, up almost eight per cent, and Ross Stores, up six per cent and at a new high.US chain-store sales climbed 4.8 per cent in January. Along with rising service-sector activity and improved jobless claims figures, the stronger-than-expected retail figures added to growing evidence of an economic rebound.“The strength in the retail sector is probably the standout feature today,” said Nick Kalivas, an analyst at MF Global. “You have generally a profit-taking, consolidative market after a couple of days of big run-ups [and] in front of the employment report tomorrow.”The wider market had come under pressure for most of the day as some investors said stocks were extended after weeks of gains, while a stronger dollar weighed on the natural resource sector.Kalivas said the material and energy sectors were ripe for profit-taking while retail stocks had lagged the rally since the beginning of the year over concerns about the strength of consumer spending.The Dow Jones industrial average gained 20.29 points, or 0.17 per cent, to 12,062.26. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index rose 3.07 points, or 0.24 per cent, to 1,307.10. The Nasdaq Composite Index added 4.32 points, or 0.16 per cent, to 2,753.88.The S&P 500 has rallied more than 10 per cent since breaking out of a trading range at the start of December and is up 21 per cent since the end of August.Data showed the US services sector grew in January at its fastest pace since August 2005, and initial claims in the latest week for unemployment benefits fell more than expected.The S&P’s energy sector has been the top gainer this year, rallying 9.4 per cent, while industrials and technology each have rallied six per cent. Over that time the Morgan Stanley retail index has fallen 2.5 per cent.Also in the retail sector BJ’s Wholesale Club said it may put itself up for sale. Shares of BJ’s, which is under pressure from a private equity firm that may make a hostile bid, jumped 12.2 per cent. Trading volume was 7.69bn shares on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq, below last year’s average. center_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

Brazilian bishops blame Amazon fires on ‘greed and hatred’

first_img Press Release Service Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Collierville, TN Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Anglican Communion News Service] A group of 15 Brazilian bishops representing the Anglican church in Brazil have called on their government to take action to stop the spread of fires in the Amazon rainforest.A pastoral letter from the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil stated they were facing the worst wave of fires in Brazil for seven years.“For more than two weeks the Amazon Forest has been on fire, burnt by greed and hatred,” the bishops wrote. “Those fires in the Amazon are not the result of drought, nor the result of natural hazards. Those are actions orchestrated by people representing agribusiness, land grabbers and prospectors encouraged by the president’s irresponsible speeches and statements.”Read the full article here.

Incredible skill by Wallaby George Smith in 2004

first_imgWednesday Jan 30, 2008 Incredible skill by Wallaby George Smith in 2004 Great pieces of skill in particular, what some may call the finer side of the game of rugby, have in many ways been what has driven this site. This is one such moment, coming to us from a Wallaby legend way back in 2004. Sure, the big hits and the amazing tries are spectacular, but more often than not, what really does is the delicate pieces of skill that separate the average players from the greats. It’s with this in mind that we’ve dug out this clip of the multi-talented Wallaby flanker George Smith against the All Blacks in the Tri Nations in 2004. Those of you who’ve been able to see Smith play on a regular basis will know that time and time again he pulls off the impossible. If it’s not a big hand off and a neat grubber down the line, it’s a perfectly timed pass to put a team mate into space. On this occasion, after Smith’s great strength and miracle pass inside the touch judge got it wrong unfortunately, but it’s just one example of his fine skill that makes him a delight to watch.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Romania’s dangerous high tackle that helped Spain to an upset victory

first_imgTuesday Feb 20, 2018 Romania’s dangerous high tackle that helped Spain to an upset victory Spain beat Romania 22-10 in the Rugby Europe Championship to find themselves in pole position for Rugby World Cup 2019 qualification. Their task was helped early on when Romania lost a man to the sin-bin thanks to this reckless tackle. The loss to Spain cost Romania a place in the World Rugby Rankings, as they swap places with Samoa, who move up to 15th, leaving Romania in 16th. Spain, who picked up the win, remain in 19th position but have closed their position behind Uruguay ever so slightly.It was Spain’s first loss over Romania in six years, leaving them in a strong position to qualify for RWC 2019 and join Scotland, Ireland, Japan and the Play-Off Winner in Pool A.They were helped in the very first minute in Madrid by Romanian winger Fonovai Tangimana, who was yellow carded for this high shot on Spain fullback Charlie Malie.The referee had little option but to send him to the sin-bin, giving the hosts the temporary advantage.Spain’s next two RWC 2019 qualifiers are at home against Germany on March 11, and Belgium in Brussels on March 18. The winner of the pool will face the World Cup hosts to open the tournament, so it looks very likely that it will be Japan vs Spain as the grand opener next year.It will be Spain’s first time back in the showpiece tournament since 1999.;credit: habi aftabiADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

With the slight split of levels it adapts to the terrain and at the same time separates the living from the sleeping area. The house is without corridors, the rooms can be entered from the shifted landing, which is part of the living area. The shape of the roof allows the morning sun from the southeast to light the entrance, bathroom and the living room.

The book, co-authored by educational consultants Allison Zmuda, Greg Curtis and Diane Ullman, features Aveson as one of the only schools implementing personalized learning, a way of teaching and learning that is catching on in public education across the country.Aveson’s contributions to Learning Personalized came after Denver education leaders visited the school last year and witnessed what they called, “one of the most authentic” personalized learning models in the country. Upon hearing this, Zmuda visited Aveson for a firsthand look at the school and to explore including their work in Learning Personalized.“There is a significant interest in personalized learning around the nation,” says Zmuda. “But Aveson is remarkable both in their design and their commitment to create this learning environment with their students and families every day.”The book, published by Jossey-Bass, focuses on clearly defining personalized learning, a “progressively student driven model in which students deeply engage in meaningful, authentic and rigorous challenges to demonstrate desired outcomes.” Although the concept has gained interest in some U.S. public schools, it is still often misunderstood and implemented only on a limited basis.Aveson teachers, students and leaders contributed day-in-the-life examples to the book as well as rubrics for guiding educators in implementing personalized learning at the classroom level. Zmuda also interviewed Aveson executive director, Kate Bean, about her experience in opening a school focused on personalized learning to provide a snapshot of the challenges to implementing the model.Aveson leaders say Learning Personalized authors have created a comprehensive framework for personalized learning and they expect that the book, as well as Aveson’s pioneering work, will serve as a foundation for other public schools to adopt it.“Aveson was started for the benefit of all public school children not just the students who attend Aveson public schools,” says Bean. “We are hopeful that our experience and its inclusion in this book will open the door for continued conversations with school districts locally and nationwide and allow us to fulfill our charter’s goal to foster the evolution of public education.”Zmuda will be in Pasadena on May 7, 2015, 7:30 p.m. for a Learning Personalized book discussion and presentation at the Pasadena City College Community Education Center, 3035 East Foothill Blvd, in Pasadena. Her presentation is free and open to the public. To register for the event, call Pasadena City College at (626) 585-3294.For more information about Aveson Charter Schools, personalized learning or to receive a copy of Learning Personalized, contact Kelly Finley at (323) 229-7511 or [email protected] Aveson: Aveson Charter Schools is composed of two public schools serving K-12 students in the Pasadena/Altadena area. Its mission is to rede?ne teaching and learning so all children have the opportunity to experience an exemplary public education.
