• Stagecoach on track for year after sales rise

    first_img BUS and rail group Stagecoach said ticket sales rose across its bus and rail operations in the first half of its financial year and that it expects to meet its profit expectations for the full-year.The FTSE 250-listed group said revenues in its rail business grew 6.5 per cent in the 24 weeks to 17 October. Virgin Rail, in which the group owns a 49 per cent stake, achieved sales growth of 15.2 per cent, the group said in a trading update yesterday. Turnover in Stagecoach’s bus unit rose 2.3 per cent, while its coach operations in North America rose 7.5 per cent. The company said the government’s changes to bus subsidies will not impact profit this year, but that the 20 per cent cut from April 2012 announced last month will affect future decisions on bus fares, tenders and services. The firm returned to the London bus market last month after it bought the East London Bus Group out of administration for £52.8m, but said the purchase will not make a material difference to results in the full year to April. Shares in the company, which have risen a fifth in the last three months, closed up 0.9 per cent at 216.1p. whatsapp Stagecoach on track for year after sales rise Share Show Comments ▼ Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

  • Independent journalists detained in Tashkent freed after seven hours

    first_imgNews UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia News August 2, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent journalists detained in Tashkent freed after seven hours Organisation The two independent journalists Sid Yanyshev et Pavel Kravets, arrested three days ago as they were taking photos of Axia market in Tashkent, were released later that evening after spending seven hours in custody, Reporters Without Borders has learned.Police said the pair had not been detained but were asked to explain the reasonsfor their presence at the market. Officers asked them highly specific questions about their work, such as the name of person who had commissioned them, how much they were paid for the photographs and why they had chosen particular subjects to shoot.Yanyshev was asked to give a detailed explanation in a statement.When they were released, the head of operations asked them to return at 10 a.m. the next day with their passports.————————————————————-30.07.2012 – Two independent journalists detained in Tashkent Reporters Without Borders is very worried by today’s arrest of two independent journalists, Sid Yanyshev and Pavel Kravets, as they were taking photos of Axia market in Tashkent to illustrate a series of articles on preparations for Uzbekistan’s independence day, on 1 September.“The arrest of these two journalists is disturbing and the grounds given by the police seem absurd,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We firmly condemn their arbitrary detention and we call for their immediate release. We intend to follow events closely during the coming hours.”When the police arrested Yanyshev and Kravets at around 5 p.m., they showed no documents proving that it was forbidden to take photos of the market, but they accused the journalists of “pursuing a strategic goal.”They were taken to the internal affairs department in Tashkent, where their mobile phones were confiscated.

  • Istanbul police chief may finally be investigated for failure to stop Dink murder

    first_imgIstanbul police chief may finally be investigated for failure to stop Dink murder News News TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders hails an Istanbul administrative court’s decision that Istanbul police chief Celalettin Cerrah and his aides should be investigated for their failure to take appropriate precautions after being warned of a plot to kill newspaper editor Hrant Dink, who ended up being murdered on 19 January 2007.“We welcome this decision as a step in the right direction towards identifying all those who had some degree or another or responsibility in this case,” the press freedom organisation said. “On the other hand, we deplore the fact that the Dink family, which is clearly a party to this case, was not informed of this and other developments that are of primordial interest to it.”Dink family lawyer Fethiye Cetin revealed on 19 February that the administrative court had overturned a decision by the governor of Istanbul and had ordered a more thorough investigation into those at the head of the police department. Cetin said the lawyers representing the civil parties in the Dink case were not notified of this decision and learned about it from their own sources.He added that they had decided to address a complaint to the Istanbul prefecture and the interior ministry about the failure to keep them informed of judicial and administrative developments in the case. “Unfortunately we only learn about the steps being taken (…) from the press and from our own resources,” he said. “We demand the punishment of those who show themselves to be negligent.”The Dink family accuses the Istanbul police of failing to take the necessary precautionary measures after police in the northeastern city of Trabzon, where the murder was planned, informed them several months before the murder that Yasin Hayal, one of its chief masterminds, had gone to Istanbul. The Trabzon police even told their Istanbul counterparts that he was staying with his brother Osman, a baker based in the Asian side of the city.Interior minister Besir Atalay has appointed two inspectors and a veteran police official to prepare a detailed report on the investigation. Aides of Prime Recep Tayyip Erdogan are also conducting an investigation into how the murder weapon reached Ögün Samast, the youth who shot Dink.The fourth hearing in the Dink murder trial is due to be held before an Istanbul court of assizes on 25 February. In all, 19 persons – eight of whom are currently detained – are accused of contributing in one degree or another to Dink’s murder.

  • 3 arrested after landlord’s body found in secret room in Salt Lake City

    first_imgLPETTET/iStock(SALT LAKE CITY) — Three people have been arrested in the killing of a father of four whose body was found hidden in a secret room at a Salt Lake City house he was renting to the suspects, police said.David Stokoe, 40, a popular real estate broker in the Salt Lake City area, was reported missing by his family on Friday, a day after he paid a visit to his tenants to evict them, according to police.Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Greg Wilking said police went to the apartment Stokoe rented to the suspects after learning the landlord was never seen leaving on Thursday.Wilking said officers on Friday discovered evidence at the apartment leading them to believe that someone was seriously injured there. While investigators were processing the scene, they discovered a secret door leading to a crawl space where Stokoe’s body was located, Wilking said.He said Stokoe had been shot to death and police issued an all-points bulletin for his missing 2015 Cadillac Escalade.On Saturday, police located the Escalade in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Valley City and detained two people found in the vehicle for questioning, Wilking said.He said the two people discovered with the Escalade have not been linked to Stokoe’s slaying.Wilking said investigators tracked down the suspects in the killing around 6 a.m. Saturday at an apartment in South Salt Lake. Manuel Velasquez, 31, was arrested on suspicion of murder, while two alleged accomplices, Diana Hernandez, 32, and Jessica Miller, 38, were arrested on suspicion of obstruction of justice.Police said Hernandez and Miller, who also goes by the name Jessica Reese, allegedly helped clean up the murder scene and hide Stokoe’s body after Velasquez allegedly shot him during a fight.It was not clear Monday if the suspects had retained legal representation.Stokoe’s family, meanwhile, said their hearts were “broken over the loss of David.”“This situation is tragic beyond words, but we are remembering Dave the way he deserves to be remembered, as a hero and champion,” they said in a statement.“We know we will see him again someday, and that families are forever,” the statement reads. “We are choosing to focus on the love we feel from everyone and the love we feel for Dave, rather than resentment surrounding the circumstances of his death. He’s cheering for us, watching over us, and wants us to love life and love each other.”In an interview with ABC affiliate station KTVX-TV in Salt Lake City, Neil Stokoe described his brother David as his “hero.”“I idolized Dave, everything he did,” said Neil Stokoe, adding that he and his brother are among six children in their family. “He was a very charismatic individual and just loved people. Dave was a warrior. Dave was a leader.”He said their older brother, Steve Stokoe, killed himself when he and David Stokoe were young and that David took the initiative to turn the tragedy into something positive to help others coping with depression.“I look at how he handled that trial and challenge,” Neil Stokoe said of David. “He was really, really tight with Steve and for him, he worked through it and then turned it into something to where he would go out to high schools and talk about suicide prevention and tell his story.”Neil Stokoe said he hopes to follow his brother’s example and turn his murder into something positive.“Knowing Dave, he would take this opportunity and not see it as a tragedy,” the brother said. “He would look at it as an opportunity to remind people to make time for the things and people that mattered.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

  • Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

    first_imgOriel postgraduate student Marcus Walker has been nominated for the Professorship of Poetry of Oxford, an honoured post established in 1708 and previously held by Matthew Arnold, WH Auden and Seamus Heaney. Walker, a figure with a notable love of notoriety amongst the student body, hopes to restore rhyme, rhythm and meter to poetic style – “much unlike the current Poetry Professor Paul Muldoon” whose five year stint as Professor ends in Michaelmas. However, he will face virtually unbeatable competition from fellow nominees Christopher Ricks, Anne Carson, and Peter Neville Frederick Porter. A former President of both OUCA and the Union, Walker is well known for his loonish antics and archaic sense of dress. Although he can recite from heart Tennyson’s Charge of the Light Brigade and Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky, it is thought that he has not written any poetry since his school days. Accompanied by the Editor of Cherwell, Mr Walker handed his signatures to the University Registrar only hours before the close of nominations. Asked whether he would be willing to give our readership a flavour of his poetic style Mr Walker said that “none of it is clean enough to print”. At the time of going to press, the acceptance of Mr. Walker’s nomination by the university was pending. The duties of the Professor include giving termly public lectures, and an oration at honorary degree ceremonies, as well as the ability to judge and award a number of poetry prizes to the value of many thousands of pounds. In return they will receive an annual stipend of £5,427. Elections for the Professorship will take place at the Divinity Schools on Saturday 15 May, and polls will be open for four hours. Members of Convocation – the graduate body which elected Chancellor Chris Patten last year – will be able to exercise their right to vote in person. At the previous contested election, in 1994, only 451 members of Convocation turned out to vote.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2004last_img read more
