Weather is just the final straw

first_img Weather is just the final straw Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL Share KCS-content IT isn’t just the snow that has stymied Alexon. True, the combination of closed stores and customers staying at home has been an immediate issue. But for too long Alexon’s clothes haven’t been the indispensable buy needed to haul shoppers in during the recession.It has also been crippled by millions of pounds of lease commitments on shops that have closed or have been losing money. The past two years are a litany of falling sales and margins that only stabilised in the four months to November. This underlying weakness is what extra pressures such as the current snow exposes. Though its interim sales tiptoed into the black at 0.4 per cent growth, it will lose far more than that – after all, the big freeze at the start of the year saw Alexon’s interim sales fall 14.3 per cent year-on-year. It is still to feel the benefits of a turnaround strategy that has seen new design teams hired, new clothing collections launched and £20m capital raised to pay off the leases. But these lost sales alone have the potential to strip £1.5m from its full-year profit forecast – half the £3m hoped for. That’s a massive impact from a short period of time and a sign that until Alexon can show sustained strong sales, it is out in the Arctic in investors’ terms. whatsapp Tuesday 21 December 2010 8:28 pm Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more

Tokyo Olympics postponed until 2021

first_img The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the government of Japan have confirmed that the Tokyo Olympic Games, scheduled to start from 24 July, will be postponed as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.With more than 375,000 confirmed cases of the virus around the world, the decision has been taken to reschedule the event at a date “beyond 2020 but not later than summer 2021”.This, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and IOC president Thomas Bach explained, was to safeguard the health of athletes and everybody involved in the organisation of the games.“The leaders agreed that the Olympic Games in Tokyo could stand as a beacon of hope to the world during these troubled times and that the Olympic flame could become the light at the end of the tunnel in which the world finds itself at present,” the pair said in a joint statement.“Therefore, it was agreed that the Olympic flame will stay in Japan. It was also agreed that the Games will keep the name Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020.”Pressure had been building on the organisers to cancel the event, with Canada and Australia yesterday announcing that they had withdrawn their athletes from all competitions.It follows the postponement of most major sporting events as a result of the pandemic, with almost all major professional sports across Europe and the US already shut down. Over the weekend it was then announced that Australia’s major leagues, including the National Rugby League, Australian Football League and the A-League, were also being suspended.Currently there are few sports leagues still completing fixtures, such as the Belarussian football leagues and Russian basketball leagues. Baseball looks likely to return to Japan and South Korea in the coming weeks, however, with Nippon Professional Baseball and the KBO League aiming to restart in April.

Pen: SextonItaly: D Odiete; L Sarto, M Campagnaro, G Garcia (K Haimona 54), M Bellini; E Padovani (L McLean 59), G Palazzani (A Lucchese 61); A Lovotti (M Zanusso 71), D Giazzon (A Fabiani 54), D Chistolini (P Ceccarelli 54), G Biagi (B Steyn 35), M Fuser (Q Geldenhuys 26), F Minto, A Zanni, S Parisse (capt).Tries: David Odiete, Leonardo Sarto. Con: Kelly Haimona. Pen: Edoardo PadovaniReferee: Angus Gardner (Australia) STATISTICS58 – Ireland had 58% of the possession during this one-sided encounter but it felt like much more. The home side also had 56% of territory.613 – Ireland made good use of all that ball and made 613 metres in attack. Robbie Henshaw was top of the list with 72, while Simon Zebo made 67 and Andrew Trimble 66.3 – Fergus McFadden was something of a super-sub, coming off the bench three times in this one game! He finally left an indellible mark on the match with a try in the 78th minute.22 – Italy blindside Francesco Minto was the top tackler in the match with 22.Nice moves: McFadden makes a break while ref Angus Gardner hurdles Sergio Parisse (Pic: Inpho) Ireland answered their critics and ran nine tries past a poor and injury-hit Italy side to notch up their first win of this RBS 6 Nations in comprehensive style.It took just six minutes for Andrew Trimble to open the scoring with the first try of the day and the last came in the final two minutes of this one-sided match as Italy proved unable to live with the pace and persistence of Ireland.In between, Jamie Heaslip grabbed two tries and among the other try-scorers was replacement hooker Sean Cronin, who came on to win his 50th cap and celebrated by crossing the line just four minutes later.Double delight: Jamie Heaslip celebrates his second try. (Photo: Inpho)It was a grim afternoon for Italy. They scored two tries in the second half but that was scant consolation and their coach Jacques Brunel said after the game: “In the first three matches there has been some positives but there weren’t any today.” WHAT’S HOT…Ireland’s patience – A good number of Ireland’s nine tries came from long build-ups through a dozen phases or more. They wore the Italy defence down then capitalised in a ruthless fashion by cutting them to shreds.Set pieces – Ireland won 100% of their lineouts and scrums, giving themselves a great platform to work from. As skipper Rory Best said after the game: “It’s been a big rock for us over the years, our set pieces, so it’s nice to get that back.”The Italy fans – Despite seeing their team well beaten, the travelling fans still made themselves heard, singing their hearts out during the match and after the final whistle.At last: David Odiete scores Italy’s first try, after they had conceded seven. (Photo: Inpho)WHAT’S NOT…Italy, in general – Just a few weeks ago Italy came so very close to their first win in Paris, but they looked a shadow of that side today as they buckled under the physical pressure Ireland put on them from the outset. As the Italy skipper Sergio Parisse said after the game: “It was very bad and it was everybody’s fault.”The Italy lineout – Italy lost three lineouts on their own throw and didn’t manage to pinch any from Ireland, with Devin Toner ruling the roost by taking seven lineouts. The Italians were unlucky in that they lost both starting locks to injury in the first half but they still need to do better. Both teams came into this match looking for their first win of the tournament. How did the game pan out? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight last_img read more

EDM Media launches three new lists

first_imgEDM Media launches three new lists List company EDM Media has launched three new mailing lists that are relevant for charity fundraisers – data from The Guideposts Trust, Hopegivers International, and the Sweepstake file.Mental health charity Guideposts Trust runs an ongoing monthly direct mail programme. The new data being released for rental for the first time is 8,000 names that have responded specifically to monthly survey mailings. Names are 60% female, 39% male, predominantly aged 60+ with 54% retired. Known hobbies include knitting, gardening, puzzles, reading and stamp/coin collecting.Hopegivers International’s list consists of 4,591 active donors who have been recruited by direct mail and given generously to the charity. It is likely to grow significantly in forthcoming months.The list will perform exceptionally well for direct mail campaigns, for mail order catalogues and charity mailers targeting the over 50s market. Previously only available on a swap basis, the data “is ideal for tests and is responding well to third world charity offers”.Profiling and data analysis shows that these individuals tend to support a wide range of charitable causes, particularly Christian and third world causes.The Sweepstake File consists of 45,000 names that have entered instant cash prize draws, inserted into various mailings, with a chance to win £10,000. The prize draws are run on behalf of a number of charities including medical charities for sick children and animal related causes. The responders have not donated to the charities concerned, but did enter the free prize draw.EDM Media say that “this new list is ideal for sweepstake and incentivised mail order offers, as well as raffle and competition mailers”.There is a gender split of 58% female to 42% male, they tend to be over 45 years old and they respond particularly well to direct mail offers. The Sweepstake File is MPS screened.www.edmmedia.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
