However, chief executive Jean-Yves Charlier said that 2011 revenue would be lower, but would not say by how much.“While market conditions are challenging, we think they will remain so through 2011,” Charlier said.Promethean World, whose biggest competitor is Canada-based Smart Technologies, said revenue from emerging markets grew at about 55 per cent in 2010.“We expect in the course of 2011 that it will also be our fastest growing segment given that austerity measures haven’t necessarily impacted the demand for these technologies,” Charlier said.The company, which supplies interactive white boards and learning software to schools, reported a seven per cent drop in its full-year adjusted operating profit because of a decline in margins and budgetary constraints in the US.The company posted a full-year adjusted operating profit of £27.4m, and a pre-tax profit of £17.1m.Numis Securities analyst Nick James cut his 2011 revenue estimates for the company by 10 per cent to £211m.

  • Anthrax Discovered on Indiana Livestock Farm

    first_img Facebook Twitter The Indiana Board of Animal Health has issued the following advisory. Anthrax (Bacillus anthracis) has been diagnosed on a Southern Indiana beef cattle farm. A veterinarian collected tissue samples for laboratory testing after the animal died unexpectedly. Only a single, mixed-breed bull died; other animals in the herd have not shown clinical signs. The infected animal was incinerated on-site, and the farm was placed under a 30-day quarantine and observation order by the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH). BOAH advised vaccination for all other animals in the herd.The situation does not pose a public health threat. While humans can contract anthrax from animals, the risk is low. Anthrax is NOT transmitted from person to person. Only people who had direct contact with the infected animal are at any risk of infection, and that risk is believed to be minimal at this time. All of those individuals have been notified and are being followed up with appropriately by health officials.While anthrax is not an uncommon finding in livestock in Western states, this is unusual for Indiana. BOAH’s historic records do not indicate the last time this disease was found in the state.The anthrax bacterium can occur naturally in the soil in some areas. Grazing animals are at highest risk of contact, as they may consume spores from contaminated pastures or hay. Biting flies and other insects can also spread spores. Again, while this is an unusual finding in Indiana, livestock and horse owners should be aware of signs and know when to contact a veterinarian.Signs of AnthraxClinical signs of anthrax vary by species and the means by which the animal is infected:Infection that occurs via the mouth or nostrils will produce signs quickly, followed by sudden death. Signs of infection may not be noticed.Sudden death is often accompanied by bleeding from body openings. The carcass will generally bloat and decompose rapidly. Blood will have contain a high level of bacteria and should be avoided.Less acute infections may cause the animal to stagger, have difficulty breathing, tremble, collapse and die. Horses may have colic. Edema and swelling may be seen over the body, particularly at the brisket. Illness is observed for 1 or 2 days, but it may last 5 days; signs are preceded by fever, with a period of excitement in which the animal may charge anyone nearby. This is followed by depression in cattle or sheep.The anthrax organism may sometimes localize in the throat area. The tongue, throat and neck are extremely swollen and a frothy blood-tinged discharge comes from the mouth. Although this is the typical form of anthrax observed in swine, it may also occur in cattle and sheep.Skin infections will occur around the point of entry from an injury or insect bite. The affected area initially is hot and swollen and becomes cold and insensitive. Later, the infection can become generalized. Anthrax Discovered on Indiana Livestock Farm SHARE Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for December 5, 2016Next articleChange the Soil, Change the Future Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Anthrax Discovered on Indiana Livestock Farm What To DoContact a veterinarian immediately about any clinical signs that suggest anthrax.Isolate the animal/carcass as much as possible from other animals (including farm pets, wildlife, etc.) and people.This may include penning live animal(s).For carcasses, tarping can help minimize contact. SHARE Do not move the animal from the site.After a DiagnosisFollowing an anthrax diagnosis, a BOAH veterinarian will contact the attending veterinarian and the animal owner to collect a case history and try to determine the source of the infection.Exposed animals may need to be treated with antibiotics, while dead animals need to be disposed of promptly on-site. More information about this process is online at:  www.ag.ndsu.edu/pubs/ansci/beef/v561.pdfAn effective vaccine is available from veterinary supply companies. All animals on the site should be vaccinated upon completing antibiotic treatments, then boosted according to the label. After a diagnosis, future vaccination regimens should include anthrax vaccine as a preventative measure.About AnthraxAnthrax is a bacterium that can infect many species, primarily grazing animals. The bacteria produce spores that may be found in the soil in certain regions, primarily Western states. The spores are very hearty in the environment and may remain dormant in the soil for many years. Cases of the disease generally occur after the soil is disturbed, such as flooding. Anthrax in animals is a reportable disease to the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH). The disease is classified as a zoonotic (able to infect humans); however, the risk of infection from an animal is low.For more information, visit BOAH’s website at:  www.boah.in.gov.

  • Limerick households with undrinkable water may face full charges

    first_imgFacebook Meanwhile Sinn Féin’s party leader on the merged Limerick City and County Council, Cllr Maurice Quinlivan, described the retention of water charges in this week’s budget as a “missed opportunity”. Cllr Quinlivan insists that water charges need to be stopped and said the budget shows that the Government is “out of touch”.A protest is being organised in Limerick for Saturday October 25 by the Anti Austerity Alliance’s ‘We Won’t Pay!’ campaign. AAA councillor Cian Prendiville said he expects a huge turnout for the march which starts from City Hall at 2pm.

Instead it will be a judgement call made by the HSE, which means that households with levels of lead over the EU limit may have to pay the water tax without any reductions for contamination.”He said that councillors were told that people’s credit rating will be affected by non-payment of the charge, and that their water supply will be reduced to a trickle if they do not pay.“Now they are saying that these measures will also be put into place for households who refuse to pay for their contaminated water. This is a further insult to people who have been once again targeted in this year’s budget. The fact that so many people in Limerick can’t drink their water and yet they may be charged in full for this water, is another blow to the credibility of this government and Irish Water,” he added.

He submitted that Republic TV has not yet been named as an accused in the FIR and that the apprehension of arrest was unfounded. He urged the bench not to interfere with the investigation when it was at a nascent stage.The bench then observed that the interim protection was not necessary at the present stage as Goswami has not been named in the FIR.”Let him(Goswami) be not arrested without the leave of the Court”, Salve persisted pointing to the fact that his client has strong apprehensions that Police might arrest him given the mala fides alleged in the case. “Why? Is he a special person?” Sibal retorted.”As on today, he (Arnab Goswami ) is not an accused. So we do not think there is any reason to pass an interim order of protection”, the bench tried to dissuade Salve from pressing further. But Salve continued to persuade the bench. He said-“There was no reason for the Police Commissioner to call for a press conference and make statements against me. This shows lack of bona fides. If the police commissioner can rush to give such interviews, he can very well arrest me in no time.”The bench replied: “We will grant you leave to approach us in such a case”.”Let him be given 48 hours notice before arrest”, Salve replied. “Arnab Goswami is not a special person. Press has no special privileges. The right remedy is Section 438(anticipatory bail) and not under Section 482 (quashing of FIR)”, Sibal intervened.Sibal reiterated that no summons have been issued to the Republic TV Chief till now. If summons is issued to Arnab Goswami he must cooperate with the investigation, Sibal added.After that, the bench dictated the order regarding issuing of notice and posting of the case to the next date, November 5.On noting that the bench has not mentioned anything about interim protection, Salve made further submissions. He said that he was under the impression that Sibal had undertaken not to arrest him till the next date of hearing and that the bench was recording the same.”I thought Sibal was saying that they will not arrest him(Arnab Goswami) and not to record that statement formally. But now I understand that is not the position”, Salve said.”I never gave any commitment that he (Arnab Goswami) will not be arrested. I said that he should cooperate with the investigation”, Sibal clarified.At this juncture, Sr Adv Salve said, in that case, he wished to argue on the aspect of interim order granting protection from arrest. The police commissioner has accused him in a press conference, Salve reiterated.”The Police Commissioner has said Republic TV not petitioner number 2 (Arnab)”, Sibal replied.”Republic TV is him (Arnab Goswami)”, Salve retorted.Finally, after much back and forth, the bench observed- “We will only say if the investigating officer wants to question him, summons will be issued. When summons is issued, where is the question of arrest? And in case of urgency, we will grant you liberty to move urgently here.As on date, Arnab Gosawmi is not an accused in the FIR. In case, the investigating officer proposes to array him as an accused, in that case, the officer will issue summons to him in the first instance. In case the summons is received, Mr.Salve has stated that Arnab Goswami will appear and cooperate with the investigation.”During the hearing, the bench also expressed its displeasure at the Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh giving press statements about the case.”We are not saying only about the present matter. It is happening in other sensitive matters where investigation is pending and officers are not supposed to reveal incriminatory material but they do. Something needs to be done on this”, Justice Shinde told Sibal.Sibal responded-“I agree with your Lordships. I have raised my voice against agencies for leaking information to the media. But there is another side of the story. Many channels, including the petitioner’s channel Republic TV are carrying out a media trial. In fact, the media trial matter is being heard by the bench headed by the Chief Justice of Bombay High Court. Your lordship may record my statement that we will not go to the media during the pendency of the investigation. But your lordship should also direct that Republic TV should not do media trial in this case”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
