VALENTINES ADDING TO OUR TRADE DEFICIT

first_img whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL THERE are no excuses for disappointing Valentines dates this evening who fail to produce a plush dozen roses: rose deliveries to the UK this year are at record highs. Virgin Atlantic’s cargo division has reported a 40 per cent increase in the volume of flower deliveries to the UK from Kenya, our main supplier of roses, compared to the same period last year.That equates to 15 tonnes of flowers shipped over in just the last ten days, with Kenyan roses making up a third of the blooms you’ll see sold and bought this Valentines. Japan and the US have likewise upped their rose consumption. And while Kenyan roses remain ever-popular, Brits also seem to be looking for an original way to greet their dates: imports of South African chrysanthemums and American carnations have also been on the rise.But to add a grim dose of guilt to your romantic pleasures, Lake Naivasha, the fresh-water lake in Kenya that supplies much of the irrigation for many of the country’s rose plantations, has been so depleted by failed rains recently that the country is considering rationing water use. Which would make your dozen roses another data-point in the scourge of global commodity price inflation. BEND IT LIKE HOLMESFinancial education and football are rarely associated with one another, but yesterday Standard Chartered attempted to form a beautiful relationship between the two at its London Football Clinic. Ex-Liverpool striker Ian Rush joined Standard Chartered’s Richard Holmes for a training session with local and visually impaired children, who were then given a lesson in personal finance, incorporating a football theme.At this rate it’ll only be a matter of time before Wayne Rooney is offering stock tips.

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Why I have my eye on these FTSE 100 high dividend yielding shares for February 2020  Manika Premsingh | Friday, 31st January, 2020 | More on: PSN center_img With a number of high dividend paying companies releasing financial updates next month, I’m keenly awaiting February 2020. I want assurance that they will continue to be a great source for passive income generation going forward. Or, at the very least, get a better sense of which way their share price as well as their yield is headed through 2020.Big shareholder gains One of these is the FTSE 100 miner EVRAZ which has the highest dividend yield in the set, of almost 16%. Despite this, and a huge return on capital over the last half a decade, I have remained unconvinced of the share. The fact the largest shareholder, chair, and CEO sold off part of their holdings understandably led to investor nervousness last year.  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…Nevertheless, it’s trading update released yesterday was received positively, leading to a share price rise. Its annual results are due at the end of February. These will provide the full picture of the past year and also the outlook for the future. I’m waiting it to figure out whether the share price can once again repeat the performance of the last few years, and also to get better perspective on its dividends for 2020.  Undeniably high yield Energy provider Centrica is another FTSE 100 is also releasing results in mid-February. Its double-digit dividend yield is second only to EVRAZ. I’m waiting to see if that can be sustained in the next year. This depends on both the actual dividend paid and the share price. Centrica’s share price has been on the downtrend since 2013. Its recent updates have given some hopes of better conditions, but I don’t think its share price will soar anytime soon. There’s no reason to believe that dividends will change materially either, keeping its yield strong. But I’ll wait for another two weeks for confirmation. Best of both the worlds The FTSE 100 housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) is next on my list of stocks to look out for in February. Its share price has been rising steadily since August last year after it released its half-year results. It’s currently trading at all-time highs. The housing market for the UK could look better over 2020, though I say that cautiously after the Bank of England cut its forecast for the economy yesterday.  Yet, the combination of better housing market prints and continued low interest rates could work in the favour of PSN. We’d know for sure what the future holds when it announces its 2019 results at the end of February. Even before that, though, I think there’s a strong case for PSN. It’s a rare stock that’s offering both a high yield of 7.7% and has seen rising share prices for much of the past year. Even if the prices do start coming off, I reckon this one will remain a winner because of the income.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Leinster pick up bonus point in good win over Scarlets

first_imgSunday Dec 13, 2009 Leinster pick up bonus point in good win over Scarlets Defending champions Leinster scored three tries in the first half as they blew away the Scarlets with a 32-7 victory at Parc y Scarlets in the Heineken Cup.Despite flying to a 22-0 lead in just 29 minutes, they were only able to secure the bonus point nine minutes from time, through flanker Sean OBrien.Shane Horgan scored a great try early on, followed by Gordon DArcy and Shaun Berne. Berne, playing in the absence of Jonny Sexton, provided 17 of his teams points against the previously unbeaten Scarlets.The hosts, missing the injured Mark Jones, Matthew Rees and Dafydd Jones, struck back in the second half with a try by Jonathan Davies, but their misery was compounded by having a player yellow carded.Leinster have now bolstered their chances of reaching the quarter finals after they had earlier lost to London Irish in Dublin before getting things back on track against Brive.Coach Michael Cheika was relieved that his players didnt pay the price for complacency in the second half after they had shot out the blocks in the first.“I was pleased with the first half and the result,” said Cheika. “But we gave them too much of a look-in in the second half.”“When you play like we did in the first half you have just got to keep going. It worked out in the end. We want to make sure we eradicate that second-half performance and that mindset before Dublin next week,” he added.

Traps open for the last time at Markets Field

first_imgPrint Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up MANY tears will be shed in the Mulgrave Street area this Saturday when the Markets Field closes its doors as a greyhound track, where it has been very much part of Limerick life since 1932.Though those associated with the industry have long claimed that the venue had passed its sell-by date, they will still view it as a sad occasion when dogs enter traps for the last time and when the lights are finally switched off. Twitter Advertisement Facebook Previous articleBreakfast bar and seven-day carveryNext articleKenny’s comedy takes more ‘believable’ path admin Email Linkedin WhatsApp One man who has particularly fond memories is Paddy Kiely, Rathbane, a former League of Ireland referee and who has been a regular patron for over 65 years.The new multi-million euro greyhound stadium at Greenpark is to open on October 8, with the official opening planned for a later date. The burning question now is, what happens to the Markets Field, once the home of LOI soccer in the city.It is understood that the directors of Limerick FC have had talks with Bord na gCon officials with a view to making it their home, but nothing concrete has so far emerged.Limerick vacated the venue in 1984, to go to Hogan Park. They had been tenants since the mid 1930s.City councillors are keeping a watching brief as indeed, are residents in the general Garryowen area.It had been speculated two years ago that a businessman, with a strong attachment to the Markets Field and the greyhound industry, was waiting in the long grass, purported to be interested in making a bid for the property and handing it back to the local community as a gesture of goodwill.Bord na gCon will be looking for the best possible price to offset costs involved in the construction of their magnificent new stadium.They are also disposing of their offices in Henry Street.

Minister “presiding over escalating crisis” at University Hospital Limerick – Collins

first_imgProceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL No vaccines in Limerick yet Print Facebook Shannondoc operating but only by appointment Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April First Irish death from Coronavirus Linkedin WhatsApp Andrew Carey Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] Minister for Health, James Reilly TD has been “presiding over and escalating crisis” at the University Hospital Limerick after a HIQA report revealed the accident and emergency facility was deemed “not fit for purpose”, according to Limerick TD Niall Collins. The Fianna Fáil TD says he is appalled at a HIQA report which states that the emergency department in University Hospital Limerick is ‘not fit for purpose’. He added that concerns raised repeatedly by hospital staff about the poor patient conditions at the A&E have consistently being ignored and instead of addressing these issues, the HSE slashed the budget for the hospital by €11 million this year.“It is shocking and appalling to read the words ‘persistent overcrowding’, ‘unacceptable’ and ‘not fit for purpose’ in a HIQA report on the A&E department at University Hospital Limerick.The report found that there were also delays in transferring patients from the Emergency Department to the Intensive Care Unit and the High Dependency Unit, partly due to the absence of a single clinical governance structure.HIQA said the conditions experienced by patients attending the Emergency Department were unacceptable.It found the department overcrowded and not fit for purpose.The report also said that emergency response ambulances were being significantly delayed when waiting to transfer patients from the ambulance trolley to an ED trolley at the hospital.“The chronic lack of funding and resources at the hospital cannot be allowed to continue. Patients’ lives are literally being put at risk on a daily basis and this must stop”, added the Limerick TD.“Overcrowding and cramped conditions at the hospital has been a problem for a number of years and the HSE’s answer was to slash funding to the hospital by €11 million this year. Staff at the hospital have pleaded with the HSE to put in place measures to address overcrowding at the hospital, but they have been ignored.“The HIQA report paints a bleak and distressing picture of the quality of service for patients at the hospital. Patients’ complaints are being ignored.“The report also highlights how grossly mismanaged the HSE budget has been and how out of his depth the Minister for Health is. How can we continue to have a lame-duck Health Minister, seemingly on his way out, at the helm when the health service is in crisis?“There are due to be over €600 million in cuts from the Health budget this year, but where can these savings be made if, for example, University Hospital Limerick is experiencing such problems?“What we need to see is the speedy construction of the new A&E department at University Hospital Limerick, any further delays will not be acceptable.“The people of Limerick and the staff at the hospital who have been put under extreme pressure and they deserve more than this from the Government, our most sick and needy have been grossly neglected and I intend to raise this matter in the Dáil with the Minister for Health next week” he concluded.center_img Previous articleA charming stay in the Temple Gate HotelNext articleLacklustre Limerick crash out of FAI Cup Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsMinister “presiding over escalating crisis” at University Hospital Limerick – CollinsBy Staff Reporter – June 6, 2014 769 TAGSfeaturedHIQAJames ReillyMinister for Healthnot fit for purposeuniversity hospital limerick Email Advertisementlast_img read more
