Analysts on average expect 2011 revenue to rise about four per cent, according to Thomson Reuters.As a result, the company raised its annual dividend by seven per cent to $1.24 per share.The revenue forecast suggests that the company’s customers are recovering from the economic downturn that caused a pullback in spending and widespread layoffs.“A shock like the world went through leaves a caution that hangs around for a while,” Chief Executive Tom Glocer said in an interview. “But there’s no question that the conditions themselves are getting better in many of our markets.”Total revenue from ongoing businesses rose four per cent in the fourth quarter to $3.46bn (£2.15bn), before currency adjustments. Underlying operating profit rose three per cent to $669m. Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

South Dakota mission church wants stolen bell back, offers forgiveness…

first_img [Episcopal News Service] A century-old bell was ripped from its tower at an Episcopal mission church in South Dakota sometime around the beginning of the year, and Rosebud Episcopal Mission has a message for the thieves: Bring the bell back, and all is forgiven.“If the thief/thieves would like to return the bell, we would gladly accept it and offer forgiveness – because that’s what we do in the Church,” the Rev. Lauren Stanley said Jan. 9 in a Facebook post seeking help in solving the crime.The bell was stolen from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, just north of Norris, South Dakota. It had been housed in a simple, wooden tower that was capped by a wooden cross. A member of the congregation discovered the tower toppled and the bell missing on Jan. 7 and notified Stanley. The cross also was damaged.“Right now, the whole community is just in shock,” Stanley said when reached by phone. “We are absolutely shocked that somebody would steal a bell from one of our oldest churches, and we are absolute appalled that anybody would attack a church in this way.”The church was founded in 1890, and the bell could be nearly as old. Decades ago it was used to summon worshipers to St. Paul’s for the monthly service and a community gathering, which would stretch over multiple days, Stanley said. Church leaders also rang it to notify local residents of major news.Its use as a communication tool eventually was eclipsed by modern technology, but the bell still is a cherished piece of local history for the community.The church, which is served by the Rosebud Episcopal Mission, is on tribal land but outside the boundaries of the Rosebud Indian Reservation. During warmer months, services are scheduled every third Sunday, and attendance can range from a half dozen to as many as 85, if there is a baptism, Stanley said. St. Paul’s typically closes for the winter, when the congregation worships instead at a church in Norris.The bell was last seen on Dec. 30, after a funeral at St. Paul’s. It was discovered missing by the congregation’s senior warden on her way home from visiting the nearby cemetery the morning on Jan. 7. She called Stanley that night, and on Jan. 8, Stanley drove over to inspect the damage.Stanley thinks this was more than a case of vandalism. “This was not a quick job,” she told Episcopal News Service. The bell weighs at least 300 pounds – even more when adding its yoke, which also was stolen. The thieves appear to have cut the tower’s posts with a hand saw and then pulled it down with rope and a truck.She suspects it was taken before Jan. 3 because snow fell that day, covering up the tire tracks left by the thieves’ truck. Stanley contacted both the county sheriff’s department and tribal police, who typically work together investigating crimes that happen on tribal land off the reservation.The bell was stolen years ago, and members of the Sioux community back then were able to find it by sharing information with each other and convincing the thieves to bring it back. Stanley and investigators hope the same will happen this time.“We believe that it’s the community that is going to get it back for us,” Stanley said. In the meantime, she is contacting scrap metal dealers from Rosebud to Rapid City asking them to let her know if someone tries selling the bell, though she doesn’t think it’s worth more than $10 melted down.Stanley’s Facebook post had been shared 350 times as of midafternoon Jan. 9. Comments on the post have expressed shock, sadness and outrage.“This theft has to be the saddest of all thefts!” said commenter Audrey Williamstead. “Why would anyone want to take the church bell which has been there forever?”“I was baptized there,” said another commenter, Rhonda Eagle Bear. “Please return our bell.”If the thieves bring the bell back, Stanley said, she not only will offer forgiveness, but “I’ll probably end up buying them dinner. Because what would you take a church bell for?”Stanley added: “And then I’ll find some people to help me rebuild the bell tower, and the community will turn out for that.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

£4m in bank fines is donated to Navy’s charity

first_img£4m in bank fines is donated to Navy’s charity The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity is to receive £4 million from the government, funded by fines levied on banks for manipulating the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) financial benchmark.George Osborne MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, announced £2 million of funding for the charity on a visit to Portsmouth.£1 million will be spent on supporting personnel and their families through projects such as refurbishing family spaces in naval buildings at Gosport and the renovation of buildings in HMS Nelson in Portsmouth to provide accommodation for families. Another £1 million will fund other projects including including help for the Naval Families Federation, which provides support and guidance for Naval Service families.This morning Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, announced a further £2 million to the charity to contribute to the rebuilding of the Drumfork Club, a community centre in Helensburgh, Scotland.George Osborne said:“It is fitting that the money paid in fines by people who demonstrated the poorest values in our society is used to support those who demonstrate the very best. Servicemen sacrifice so much to keep our nation safe and we will invest into projects such as refurbishing the Mess at HMS Sultan and renovating the Navy Mews so they can spend times with their loved ones when they are deploying.”The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity is the strategic partner charity of the Royal Navy.

Paris, France: Battles in the shadow of the presidential palace

first_imgToday, the second big day of action of the “yellow vests,” a week after the first, brought out thousands of people to demonstrate on the Champs Elysées in Paris, the capital. With burning barricades about 100 yards from the presidential palace, the main demand today was for President Emmanuel Macron to resign. The anger of the crowd was palpable, and not just in words. The government brought in 3,000 cops, gendarmes and special CRS riot police. Word was that 40 CRS companies were ordered out against the demonstrators. They kept the crowds away from government offices only by using water cannons and tear gas. In addition to the capital, there were thousands of other blockades in all parts of France, encompassing hundreds of thousands of people. This is truly a popular movement with participants from all sectors of the population: workers, unemployed, youths from the inner cities, and even supervisors and small business people. They all say they don’t have enough money to make it to the end of the month and pay their bills.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
