Rolls-Royce Holdings (LSE:RR) is enduring a turbulent year. The FTSE 100 manufacturing giant is continuing to lose a lot of money thanks to the rapid decline in international air travel. A month ago, the RR share price reached a high of £4.64, but it has since fallen 42% at the time of writing. Does this now make it a cheap stock worth buying?RR share price declineIn its half-year results released this week, it confirmed it had spent £3bn in cash in response to the crisis. After implementing cuts to spending, it expects cash flow for the second half of the year to be better, providing the aviation industry gets back to business. However, with the pandemic still raging, Rolls-Royce continues to face turmoil ahead.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…In April it announced it is cutting 17% of its workforce, resulting in over 9,000 redundancies. This will help with its ambition to realise annual savings of £1.3bn by the end of 2022. The RR share price briefly reached a high of £7 in February but is unlikely to reach that level again for several years. Many shareholders will nurse their losses for a long time.Nevertheless, it is not solely reliant on air travel. Rolls-Royce is a world-renowned company specialising in the manufacture of vital pieces of modern engineering. It has five divisions: Civil Aerospace, Defence, Power Systems, Nuclear and R2 Data Labs. While its aviation business is suffering, its defence business has been coping. Geopolitical uncertainty is keeping governments on high alert and they are continuing to place orders. The crash in the oil price has also affected its Power Systems division, but the price of oil is steadying, and I think long term it will recover well.I find the work of the R2 Data Labs intriguing with huge potential for future progression. It manipulates big data and artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver technology of the future. This includes creating a virtual copy of each component it builds. Establishing a complex virtual environment gives it a futuristic way of analysing the performance of everything it builds. This will no doubt help it in its aim to deliver planet-friendly power solutions.Risk versus rewardI wrote about this FTSE 100 stock last month, concluding it was a risky buy. I still feel the same way, but if risk/reward is what you are after, then the RR share price could be worth watching. It is a powerful company at the cutting edge of technological innovation. It has a lengthy history of success, so I imagine it will get through these economic difficulties and recover. However, considering the uncertainty ahead for international air travel, its troubles are far from over. There is no dividend on offer to sweeten the deal, and I think the RR share price could well have further to fall. I would not rush to buy just yet. BAE Systems is an alternative FTSE 100 constituent I’d buy in the defence sector.

Ma’a Nonu high tackle on Clint Newland – banned for one week

first_imgWednesday Mar 12, 2008 Ma’a Nonu high tackle on Clint Newland – banned for one week This past weekend, we once again saw the back of Hurricanes wing Ma’a Nonu after he was dismissed from the field for putting in a dangerous tackle on Highlanders front rower Clint Newland. Newland himself is no stranger to controversy, after he was banned for 10 weeks for punching Neemia Tialata in the 2007 Air New Zealand Cup. This weekend’s dirty play is overshadowing the great rugby that was on show, and believe me, there was some great rugby, as you’ll see in the upcoming Pick of the Week in the next couple of days. Ma’a Nonu’s swinging arm-strangle-wrestle (choose which you prefer) has meant that he’s since been cited and suspended for one match by the SANZAR judiciary, therefore missing his teams upcoming clash with the Brumbies. At first this tackle looked like nothing, but if you watch it closely you’ll see the forearm connecting with Newland’s face. Foolish stuff from a player who should be doing everything he can to fix up his reputation.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

first_imgSunday Jun 22, 2014 Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win The Wallabies achieved a clean sweep in their three-Test series with France as they beat them 39-13 in Sydney on Saturday. The win takes Australia to seven consecutive Test victories for the first time since 2000. The 43 188 fans set a record for the largest Test Rugby crowd ever to attend the Allianz stadium, and their side didn’t disappoint as they dominated territory and possession and played some great rugby. Israel Folau was on the scoresheet yet again, scoring twice, as was debutant Will Skelton.Skelton, who has had a prolific rise to international rugby, scored a powerful try but also set up fullback Folau with a neat little pass. He chatted to Nick Cummins post match, which you can see on page two (or below). It includes his Cap presentation and some nice moments within the team. The Wallabies scored five tries to one, which pleased coach Ewen Mckenzie after last weekend’s dire encounter between the two sides in Melbourne. “We dominated possession and territory and while we didn’t make the most of every opportunity, I was pretty happy with the intent,” he said.France now have a break but must pick up the pieces ahead of the end of year tours, Six Nations and then the Rugby World Cup. Coach Philippe Saint-Andre admitted that they had been outplayed by Australia, even though they did well to keep things close last weekend.“Today Australia win all the contact areas, they go forward all the time, they had more urgency, more skill so congratulations to them. It was the end of a long season for our players but there is a game in Paris in November and they will see one French team that is completely different.” Honey Badger Nick Cummins chatted to big Will Skelton, and there is also a quick look at the cap presentation following the Waratahs lock’s first game for Australia. Coach McKenzie said he was very impressed with what he saw out there.“He had a significant influence on a Test match against a Tier One country and that’s his first game. You can’t do much more than that – play one Test, score one try and set up another. He’s a hard guy to handle. He’s pretty athletic. He got out of some tricky situations.“They certainly put some pressure on him and I thought he got through the pace and tempo of the game pretty well too. He did a good job.“We choose players because they can do certain things and his skill was very interesting and we saw evidence of that today. We saw him carrying the ball and the try-assist was pretty special too.“He’s got a fairly unique approach to the game and that’s something we employed today. He gave us something to think about,” added McKenzie.ADVERTISEMENT 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.

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) is launching an appeal in response to the Ebola crisis in West Africa. In over 50 years of co-ordinating appeals in response to disasters, this is the first time that the DEC has launched an appeal in response to a disease outbreak.All main UK broadcasters will transmit charitable appeals on Thursday, but donations can already be made via the DEC website and its 24 hour donation hotline 0370 60 60 900.Why appeal in response to Ebola and not measles?The DEC explains its unprecedented appeal in terms of Ebola’s impact, not least because other diseases such as malaria kill many more people: it is no longer simply a medical emergency but also one that brings with it the risk of a humanitarian catastrophe. The disease is not only killing people but devastating health services, communities and people’s ability to support themselves.[quote align=”center” color=”#999999″]”We have never run an appeal in response to a disease outbreak – until today”.[/quote]Eleven of the 13 DEC member agencies are already responding or planning to respond to the Ebola crisis, mostly focusing on stopping the spread of the disease and providing support to those affected. Actions include:Disposing of the bodies of the dead to prevent the spread of infectionTracing people who have been in contact with the infected so they can be treated if they have Ebola or go into quarantine until they are no longer at riskProviding food aid to affected familiesRunning some treatment centres “In its 50 year history the DEC has launched appeals for humanitarian disasters caused by floods, famines, earthquake, typhoons, and countless conflicts. We have never run an appeal in response to a disease outbreak – until today.“While many chronic diseases cause untold suffering in poorer countries, the worst acute outbreaks of deadly diseases such as measles or cholera have usually occurred in the wake of another type of disaster. In West Africa today we are seeing a disease create not just a medical crisis but a humanitarian emergency. Without urgent action to stop the spread of Ebola and to help those affected by the crisis, parts of West Africa face catastrophe within 60 days.”The appeal will also be supported by other major DEC partners including ITN, BT, Post Office, British Bankers Association, Royal Mail, RadioCentre and NewsNow.

Newspaper editor freed after three days in prison

first_imgNews June 7, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor freed after three days in prison ZambiaAfrica Organisation News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Receive email alerts Reports March 29, 2020 Find out more ZambiaAfrica RSF_en center_img Zambia : Outspoken Zambian TV channel suspended for 30 days March 12, 2019 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more News Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa Follow the news on Zambia to go further Help by sharing this information “I would like to thank everybody for the support that I have been given since Friday and before that,” The Post editor Fred M’membe told Reporters Without Borders as he was released this afternoon from Lusaka prison, where he had just spent three days.“I am very grateful to my fellow journalists,” said M’membe, who was sentenced to four months in prison with hard labour on 4 June on a contempt of court charge. “I have received more than the support I thought I would get and I deserve.”M’membe was granted a conditional release pending the outcome of his appeal. He was clearly shocked by his jail experience. “Our prisoners are treated like animals,” he said. “Our pigs, chickens, dogs sleep much better than prisoners.”Picture : Fred M’membe after his release (Chibaula Silwamba)————————————————————————————-04.06.2010 – Newspaper editor receives heavy sentenceReporters Without Borders today expressed its dismay at a four-month prison sentence with hard labour handed down to Fred M’membe, editor and owner of the independent newspaper The Post after finding him guilty of “contempt of court” for allowing the publication of an article about an ongoing trial in 2009. Passing sentence, the trial judge, David Simusamba said he hoped the sentence “would discourage all those who wanted to commit such acts”. The editor was taken immediately to prison after sentence was passed. “It is a black day for press freedom”, said one of his lawyers, who added that he would be lodging an appeal.Fred M’membe was accused of having allowed publication in his newspaper on 27 August 2009, of an article headlined, “The Chansa Kabwela case: A comedy of Errors”, written by a US-based Zambian lawyer, commenting on a trial then under way of news editor of The Post, Chansa Kabwela, accused of “distributing obscene photos likely to corrupt public morals”.Kabwela on 10 June 2009, following a strike by Zambian doctors, sent vice-president, George Kunda, the health minister and several organisations, a letter accompanied by a photo of a woman giving birth in a street. She wanted to draw the authorities’ attention to the worsening conditions for women having babies in the country. Her trial was held from August to September 2009 and led to her acquittal on 16 November 2009. See the previous release . “We do not understand the reasons that led to the Zambian justice system imposing such a harsh penalty on Fred M’membe”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “This sentence is all the more absurd because the ‘Chansa Kabwela case’ for which the journalist was tried should have been over long ago. We also condemn the judge’s remarks that he was passing an exemplary sentence, which amounts to hounding The Post”, it added, calling for the journalist’s immediate release. In a bizarre addition to the verdict, the judge also sentenced the newspaper itself to four months in prison. This sentence will also be applied to M’membe, but will be served concurrently with his own sentence. last_img read more

A mere glance through those letters is enough. Any reader can perceive the foul smell of the author’s filthy intentions. The victim’s modesty gets hurt, injured, outraged, and terribly insulted..” These remarks were made in judgment [MM Haries vs. State of Kerala] delivered in 2005 by Justice K. Hema of Kerala High Court. Today, letters are replaced by social media which has made the criminal act easier to be committed and get away with. Many women from all walks of life face online abuse and they are not sure how to deal with it. Recently, I came across a video posted by a famous travel vlogger in Kerala in which he says that someone is abusing his wife in a very filthy language by commenting on her videos in Youtube and Facebook. Aggrieved with this, he first filed a complaint before the Cyber Police. They replied to him stating that there are no provisions in the Information Technology Act to register a crime case in the matters related to defamation. They cited the Supreme Court judgment (Shreya Singhal vs. Union of India) that struck down Section 66A IT Act. Finally they advised him to give a detailed complaint before the Police Station alleging ‘defamation’.The above judgment in MM Haries is on a petition filed by a person accused of sending anonymous abusive letters to a woman police officer. In that case, the charge sheet was laid against him under Section 292, 294(b) and 506(1) of IPC. The contentions raised by the accused was that these provisions are not attracted in this case. The court refused to quash the crime observing that an offence under section 509 IPC is prima facie made out. The court found that `writing of letter’ to a woman, intending to insult her modesty can be construed as `making a gesture’ under section 509 IPC.Section 509 of the Indian Penal Code [After 2013 amendment] reads thus: “Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman.—Whoever, intending to insult the modesty of any woman, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen, by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, and also with fine.”This section is thankfully, gender neutral (as far as offender is concerned). Mens Rea: An intention to insult the modesty of any woman. Actus Reus: utters any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen, by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman.Punishment: Simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, and also with fine. The court observed that since the accused had sent letters, it cannot be said that he uttered any word, or made any sound or showed any object. Therefore it examined whether it will come within the expression `making gesture’ used in section 509 IPC ? The court noted the dictionary meaning of the word `gesture’ and said: “A gesture need not necessarily involve any body language. It is not necessary that a person uses any body signs to make a gesture. He can convey or express his intentions by sending a doctor, writing a letter or by making a phone call etc. In fact, the intentions of a person can be best expressed by way of writing a letter and there will be proof also for such an act. Therefore, going by the dictionary meaning, it has to be concluded that writing of a letter can be treated as `making a gesture’ since by such act, the writer expresses his attitude or conveys his intentions.”Justice Hema, in the above judgment, concluded thus: “There can be little doubt that the legislature would not have intended that a person who insults the modesty of a woman by his writings must be kept out of the province of section 509 IPC. In a country like India, the legislature would not have ever intended that a person who expresses his attitude or intention to insult modesty of a woman by sending a letter should be absolved from criminal liability. I am of view that the very object of the provision will be defeated if a contrary view is taken. Thus, while interpreting the meaning of the relevant expression in section 509 IPC in the light of the relevant rules of interpretation, I find that `writing of letter’ to a woman, intending to insult her modesty can be construed as `making a gesture’ under section 509 IPC.”Modesty of Woman Following are observations made in a few judgments of the Supreme Court which dealt with the term ‘modesty of woman’. Section 509 I.P.C criminalises a ‘word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman’ and in order to establish this offence it is necessary to show that the modesty of a particular woman or a readily identifiable group of women has been insulted by a spoken word, gesture or physical act (See Khushboo v. Kanniammal : AIR 2010 SC 3196). The essence of a woman’s modesty is her sex. The modesty of an adult female is writ large on her body. Young or old, intelligent or imbecile, awake or sleeping, the woman possesses modesty (See State of Punjab v. Major Singh : AIR 1967 SC 63). Modesty is a virtue which attaches to a female owing to her sex (See Raju Pandurang Mahale v. State of Maharashtra : AIR 2004 SC 1677). If the word uttered or the gesture made could be perceived as one which is capable of shocking the sense of  decency of a woman, then it can be found that it is an act of insult to the modesty of the woman (See Rupan Deol Bajaj v. K. P. S. Gill : AIR 1996 SC 309).Verma Committee Report and 2013 Criminal Law AmendmentIt is interesting to note that the Justice JS Verma Committee, in its report, suggested a repeal of Section 509. Instead, the committee suggested to incorporate this offence as Section 354C (Stalking). The committee recommended Section 354D read as follows: Whoever follows a person and contacts, or attempts to contact such person to foster personal interaction repeatedly, despite a clear indication of disinterest by such person, or whoever monitors the use by a person of the internet, email or any other form of electronic communication, or watches or spies on a person in a manner that results in a fear of violence or serious alarm or distress in the mind of such person, or interferes with the mental peace of such person, commits the offence of stalking.But the Parliament did not accept this suggestion as regards Section 509 repeal. Vide Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, it inserted Section 354D which now reads as follows: Stalking.—(1) Any man who— (i) follows a woman and contacts, or attempts to contact such woman to foster personal interaction repeatedly despite a clear indication of disinterest by such woman; or (ii) monitors the use by a woman of the internet, email or any other form of electronic communication, commits the offence of stalking. It retained Section 509 as an independent offence, and also enhanced maximum punishment from 1 years to 3 years. Also it made imprisonment part mandatory (earlier it was imprisonment or fine). Information Technology ActSection 66A of the Information Technology Act, 2000, made any information that is grossly offensive or has menacing character punishable. This section would have dealt with the crime of online abuse as well. But since the Supreme Court struck this provision down, there is currently no provision in the IT Act which deals directly with offensive and abusive online abuse punishable. However, Section 67 deal with persons who ‘publishes or transmits or causes to be published or transmitted in the electronic form, any material which is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest or if its effect is such as to tend to deprave and corrupt persons who are likely, having regard to all relevant circumstances, to read, see or hear the matter contained or embodied in it.’ But it is doubtful whether this provision would take into its ambit the textual abuses as well.Mischief RuleSince there is no Section which directly deals with an act of outraging modesty of a woman by word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman in IT Act, it can be safely said that Section 509 can be charged against those who does the crime on virtual world as well. By applying the mischief rule, one has to essentially ask what part of the law did the law not cover, but was meant to be rectified by the legislature. Section 509 was enacted at a time when there was not even a concept of internet, let alone social media. The mischief that was sought to be suppressed was the act of outraging modesty of a woman by word, gesture or act intended to insult a woman’s modesty. Now, such mischief has to be remedied by applying Section 509 to crimes done in virtual world as well. That said, I hope that Parliament expands the scope of Section 354D IPC to include online abuse as a form of stalking.
