Stelios ends brand dispute with easyJet

first_img EASYJET celebrated yesterday after settling a bitter court battle with founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou that will see it hold on to the orange “easy” branding in a deal that is expected to net Stelios more than £80m in royalties over the next ten years.The four-month dispute ended after the two sides agreed a revised branding licence, which has a minimum of ten years, that allows the budget airline to generate revenues from its non-airline operations, such as food and luggage services.EasyJet has agreed to make annual royalty payments equal to 0.25 per cent of its revenue to Stelios’ easyGroup. It will hand the group £3.9m and £4.95m in the first two years of the new 50-year agreement. The settlement gives the airline more freedom to generate revenue from outside services, including the possibility of making commission from hotel and rental car bookings if bought through the group’s website.Stelios, who will be paid £3000,000 a year for the next five years as part of the agreement, has given up the right to appoint himself as chairman of the airline’s board.He described the settlement as a “win-win for all concerned” and said that he was “content that this was a fair deal for both sides”.The two first went to court in June to resolve the dispute. Stelios took easyJet to court to clarify what “core” services were and how much his company should be paid in royalties.MARK SHILLITOHERBERT SMITHMark Shillito, an intellectual property (IP) partner at Herbert Smith, took the lead role advising long-standing client easyJet on its four month branding dispute against easyGroup founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.Shillito has a track record of acting for a number of large corporates embroiled in patent, trademark, branding and contractual disputes. He counts Apple, Vodafone and Yell as some of his clients.Geoffrey Hobbs QC and Emma Himsworth of One Essex Court were appointed as barristers for the court proceedings which kicked off in June.Meanwhile, Jane Mutimear, a partner at law firm Bird & Bird, was the lead adviser and main solicitor to easyGroup and Sir Stelios. She specialises in IP litigation.Michael Bloch QC and James Walmsley of Wilberforce Chambers argued for easyGroup in front of a judge at the chancery division of the High Court.At the heart of the dispute were tensions over a brand licensing agreement that was struck between easyJet and easyGroup when the airline floated a decade ago. Haji-Ioannou was looking for clarification on the definition of the licensing agreement.Emma Sadowski Monday 11 October 2010 9:02 pm KCS-content whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Stelios ends brand dispute with easyJet whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastBrilliant TravelerHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeBrilliant TravelerBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

A number of such stocks have underperformed the index’s 9% rise so far this year.

As you can see, my FTSE 100 growth stocks to buy have significantly underperformed the index over both periods. This is because investors have flocked to value and recovery plays.Of course, growth stocks may remain out of favour for a while yet. But I expect the quality of my five picks to shine through in due course. As such, they’re businesses I’d like to buy a slice of for the long term.Two technology-based companiesAvast is a major player in consumer cybersecurity and privacy. It doesn’t have a long history as a public company (little more than three years) which I see as something of a risk. However, I’ve been impressed by its performance and I like its significant market opportunity. A rating of 18 times forecast earnings looks good value to me for the potential long-term growth on offer.Experian is the world’s leading credit reference agency. It has valuable data and analytical technology at its heart. There’s a risk the company could suffer reputational damage if its data is breached or misused. But I’m content to accept the risk to own a slice of this high-quality market leader. I’m also content to pay a relatively high 32 times forecast earnings.The other FTSE 100 growth stocks I’d buyI reckon healthcare is an attractive sector for me to invest in. Ageing populations and rising health spending in developing economies provide a backdrop for growth. I like Hikma Pharmaceuticals for its significant exposure to generic medicines and emerging markets. There can be difficulties in gaining regulatory approval for generics, but Hikma has a good record. I see value in its rating of 18 times forecast earnings.Intertek is an industry leader in Total Quality Assurance. That’s to say, it helps ensure the quality and safety of companies’ products, processes and systems. Rising demand for quality assurance worldwide has helped put Intertek on my list of FTSE 100 growth stocks to buy. There’s some risk in the company’s acquisition strategy, but I’m prepared to accept both this and a rating of 28 times forecast earnings.Finally, I’m a big fan of hygiene and health brands powerhouse Reckitt. Its true that the digital world has lowered the barriers for new brands to enter the market. However, I think Reckitt’s brands, like Dettol and Gaviscon, can continue to be popular and trusted. The company is investing for growth and I’m happy to pay 21 times forecast earnings. -7.4 -3.2 -13.8 G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

French focus: Top 14 Quarter-final play-offs

first_imgJonny Wilkinson of Toulon reacts during the European Challenge Cup Final Rugby Union match between Toulon and Biarritz at Twickenham Stoop in Twickenham, England, on May 18, 2012. AFP PHOTO / IAN KINGTON (Photo credit should read IAN KINGTON/AFP/GettyImages) Castres’ fans were shocked. Teulet is known to them as “Robocop” for his almost robotic ability to land his goals. Earlier this month the 34-year-old full-back set a new world record when he became the first player to score 3,000 points with one club and this season he’s converted 82.9 % of his kicks at goal. Asked this week if memories of last year’s blip haunted him still, Teulet replied: “That’s the life of a kicker: they can win the match or they can lose the match.”Montpellier, for their part, will be hoping to surf the wave that has swept through the Mediterranean City following their football club’s success. Last Sunday Montpellier – operating on a shoestring budget in comparison to the likes of PSG and Marseille – won the French First Division title for the first time in their history. It was a remarkable achievement and one the city’s rugby club will look to continue on Saturday. Almost heretically (for such is his standing in France), Midi Olympique took Jonny Wilkinson to task for his failure to drag Toulon out of their malaise last Friday evening. Wilkinson’s inability to produce a plan ‘B’ mid-match when his side was struggling was a criticism levelled of him during the latter stages of his England career, when he had neither Mike Catt nor Will Greenwood in the centre to offer their advice. According to Midi Olympique Wilkinson is looking tired, mentally and physically, after a season that started with England’s World Cup warm-matches last August. “Will ‘Wilko’ be able to rediscover his best form against Racing-Metro?” wonders the paper. We’ll find out on Saturday evening.The other ‘barrage’ offers Castres’ Romain Teulet the chance for redemption against Montpellier. The two sides met at the same stage last season and Teulet had a shocker, missing a series of kickable penalties – including an easy shot at goal on 78 minutes – to hand the match to Montpellier. Game over: Can Jonny shake off his Amlin Challenge Cup disappointment in time for Top 14 play-offs?IN FRANCE they call them ‘les barrages’, in English we’d call them ‘play-offs’; perhaps the best description is the Top 14 quarter-finals, which is in effect what unfolds on Saturday when Castres host Montpellier and Racing Metro visit Toulon, writes Gavin Mortimer.At stake is a semi-final place the following weekend with the winner of the first tie facing Toulouse and either Racing or Toulon taking on Clermont. Daunting prospects, both, particularly for Toulon following last week’s horror show in the final of the Amlin Challenge Cup.Somehow Toulon have got to get themselves back up after slumping to a miserable defeat to Biarritz in a match that was a shocking advertisement for the game of rugby. What followed 24 hours later at Twickenham put French rugby firmly in its place as two Irish sides produced a performance that was light years ahead in pace, power and perception.“We’re going to bounce back,” declared Steffon Armitage to Midi Olympique this week, the England flanker all too aware that it’s 20 years since Toulon last won the Top 14 title. Asked if the defeat had been a blow to the squad’s morale, Armitage replied in the negative: “We’ve got a squad capable of achieving great things…and against Racing Metro you’ll see a different Toulon to the one you saw against Biarritz.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

What an honor it has been to serve God in our Communion! Thank you for the confidence you had in me and all the support I have had all these years. Today is my Swan Song. It is made even more special by the fact that I am singing it with you in my home Province of Central Africa. I must say my Province has made me proud in the way that they hosted ACC 16. To the province and to you all: “Zikomo! Kwambiri!”“I have seen the Promised land”, said Martin Luther King Junior as he spoke of the dawning of a new United States of America. He was quoting Moses’ experience as he glimpsed the biblical Land of Promise. I too have seen it in the Communion. What I have seen I cannot unsee! The glory of the Lord among his people is self evident. As Jesus would say, “Those who have eyes to see let them see and those who have ears to hear let them hear”! In fact I would be so bold as to quote some more scripture and say, “That which no eye has seen nor ear heard” has been revealed to us! We are witnesses of these things. Our ecumenical partners, as they brought greetings to us during the meeting, bore witness to the fact that we are a gift to the Church universal. We are not a “Global Future” but the future present! The body of Christ yearns and groans for unity and that unity is inspired and founded on Christ. That unity is expressed, in the Bible, by the Greek word, koinonia. And that word is interpreted Communion. Our Reformed brothers and sisters told us that they were inspired by our chosen description of our self-understanding that says we are a Communion and so renamed themselves a Communion of Reformed Churches. Our Lutheran sisters and brothers also told us that their Federation is also calling itself a Communion. They told us that they learnt that from us. All this is an attempt to express, theologically, the unity in Christ created by the Holy Spirit amongst believers. We are witnesses of all this. May I be a little smug and say, “The rumour about the Anglican Communion’s demise is greatly exaggerated”?!Nevertheless, we are only an approximation of what God intends. We are a human enterprise trying to be obedient to its Lord and Savior in God’s mission. And that should not be a surprise. Only those who have decided that they are God can claim perfection and once you decide that, you behave like Lucifer who decided that his pride of place and appearance made him equal to God. As the English (referencing the Lucifer experience) say, “Pride comes before a fall.” and in Chichewa we would cap it by saying, “Tinaonela Lucifer” (trans. “we saw what happened to Lucifer”).The Anglican Communion logo is a Compass Rose with the compass arrows breaking through the outside circle with a Cross at the center of the inmost circle. The second circle has the Greek inscription which says, “The truth shall set you free”. That is to say, founded in the crucified and risen Christ and sent forth to break through the church into all the world proclaiming the liberating truth of Christ. Yes, we are the disciples of Christ who have become apostles sent to make more disciples in all the world. Truth is the key word here and in the readings we heard. “The truth shall set you free”, we heard. We also heard that where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Freedom to proclaim the truth of Christ. Freedom to glorify Christ and not ourselves. Glorifying Christ not because we are prefect or even a perfect reflection of Him but rather an imperfect one that is still a work in progress until we reach perfection in him. The moment we imagine that we have attained it, “We lie and the truth is not in us, and make God a liar”, St John would say. There are those among us who have resorted to lies in order to proclaim the Gospel. As I say that, you realize that, that is a contradiction in terms. Truth can never be promoted by lies. Lies are anti-Gospel. Lies are anti-Christ. Spin is anti-Christ. Slander and defamation are anti-Christ. If the future of Anglicanism is based on such it cannot be of God. As Jesus said to those who claimed their Abrahamic pedigree but lied, “You are doing the works of your father, in whom there is no truth, who when he lies speaks his native language for he is the father of lies”. The detractors from the Communion have perfected that skill to the T! Zechariah would say to such (as to the accuser of the saints), “Rebuke you Satan!”For freedom Christ has set us free. When we know the truth we are free. Free to “go tell it on the mountains, over  the hills and everywhere”. We proclaim not hearsay. We preach that which we have experienced, seen and touched so that the broken and hurting world can have joy. Not that we prove to be better than another. Not that we can beat another on the head with our version of the Gospel but that all people, without exception, may come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ and be saved. One-upmanship (to use an Americanism) is not of Christ. St Paul writing to the Corinthians makes it quite clear that whenever one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” To the Philippians he says that he cannot boast in any achievement for everything he counted gain he now counts as loss. He further says that he has not attained the goal, the prize, but is striving towards it so that he may attain it. St John in his own way also says that we do not know what we are going to be but what we know is that we shall see Christ because we will be like him. In other words we are a work in progress and that is the state of a disciple and a disciple maker.St Paul talks about this striving as an athletic discipline. The writer to the Hebrews also imagines the Christian pilgrimage as a race in which we need to shed all things that would weigh us down. St Paul sees these things that weigh us down as Godless chatter and useless arguments and partisanship. God knows we have had a fare share of that in the church in recent years! Discipline includes bridling the tongue. Disciples are those under such discipline as athletes who work with seasoned coaches to reach the pick of their performance. Only when they have primed and toned their bodies can they strut and show off and compete effectively. That is intentional discipline in order to attain an athletic goal.  We have set our faces towards intentional discipleship. As a Communion which is confident in its Lord and saviour we are a training ground for disciples and disciple makers. What we have learnt from Jesus Christ, that which we have become we pass on to others. This requires an intentional act of going to the mountain of the Lord. An encounter with the living God, individually and together. From that encounter we can then come down into the broken world with unveiled face; with Jesus shining through us to his people.Only those who have sat under the feet of the mighty God can disciple others. It is not our gospel or ourselves that we preach but Christ crucified, says St Paul. Jesus himself in the disputation we read in today’s Gospel says that he proclaims only that which he has heard from the Father who sent him. Unless you are sent you proclaim yourself or at best your own version of the truth. And that is not the same as the Gospel of Christ. To guard from this the church ought to hear the advice given in Hebrews 3 and in Hebrews 10 were believers are enjoined not to stop meeting together lest some fall away due to sin. “As long as it is today encourage another. Do not stop meeting together (as is the habit of some)”, says the writer to the Hebrews. Disciples met in each other’s houses to break bread and shared the teachings of Christ. That is what we are enjoined to do at baptism. To meet in each other’s houses and in our case is to meet in each other’s provinces and churches as well as literal houses. That habit is infectious and also sets an example of discipleship.It is not a meeting of the like minded or of one nationality as we learn from scripture about the moment the Holy Spirit fell on the disciples. It was people from diverse backgrounds, from all over the known world on whom the Spirit fell at Pentecost. A mixed crowd was the 120 and even the twelve that Jesus had around him. Different but intent on following the Rabbi Jesus. The rich and the poor shared all things in common. Thus, none was above another, nor better than another. They shared all in common and what Jesus demanded of them was the same regardless of status, wealth, or place of origin. In fact we are told that God is no respecter of persons. Different gifts but the same mandate from the same Spirit. That singleness of purpose and unity in love is what converted the world. It is that about which St John says, “They will know you are Christians by your love.” Indeed the Roman officer, Pliny could only say, “O how they love one another”. That is discipleship.As we all know, love does not come easy. It is an intentional choice to love and to keep loving even in the face of challenges that makes marriages last. That is discipleship. Loving even when your very mind, senses and body say no. In the middle of all our disagreements, one thing I have held onto so dearly in obedience to Christ is that I refuse to be reduced to hate. The Spirit of Christ constrains us to love. It may not come natural but no discipline comes natural. It may hurt, but a very old pop song taught me the double entendre phrase, “It hurts so good”! Yes a true disciple is one who loves even as it hurts and so turns the hurts of the world into wholeness in Christ. All this, not for one’s sake nor for one’s church, nor even for our Communion but for Christ’s sake. When we set such an example we begin to participate in unparalleled ways in the mission of God and begin to model the kind of intentional discipleship that the world so needs today.In that way we begin to live the truth of Christ. That is the truth which sets us free. Intentional. Disciplined. Liberating. Discipling. Penetrating. Breaking through and breaking down barriers. Saving. Truth. A Communion or a future that is not this, is anti Christ. In fact it is one that is covered in shame. That disgrace which the Old Testament prophets talk about as the uncovering of one’s shame! The very antithesis of the “unveiled face [which] contemplates the Lord’s glory and is being transformed into his image with ever increasing glory, which comes from its Lord who is Spirit”.Before I get too carried away please pray with me in this chorus:Spirit of the Living God fall afresh on usSpirit of the Living God fall afresh on us.Melt us, mould us, fill us, use us.Spirit of the Living God Fall afresh on us.So let us go forth as free disciples and make disciples of the world!

Coronavirus impact could see legacy income fall by 9% this year

COVID-19 has the potential to add significantly to this volatility throughout 2020 and 2021Administrative: Restricting access to workplaces is likely to put pressure on the various administrative functions charities depend on to receive legacies, while the advice to avoid moving home will slow the sale of key assets from estates, which likely defers the flow of legacy income to future yearsLegacy Foresight has developed two scenarios that suggest that legacy income could fall by between 3% and 9% in 2020. This drop reflects the worsening economic environment and the delays in receiving notifications and sale of assets from estates caused by the disruption to administrative processes while COVID-19 control measures are in place.However, as administrative delays unwind, and income starts to flow from the anticipated increase in bequests, income could rise quite rapidly during 2021 and 2022, and over the five years of the forecast, legacy income is still expected to grow; from £3.2bn today, rising by 14%-19%, to reach between £3.7bn and £3.8bn by 2024.Taking the five years as a whole, Legacy Foresight now expect 1.6% – 4.5% less income than projected in their February 2020 forecasts, due to the far more pessimistic outlook for house prices and share prices over the period.Jon Franklin, economist at Legacy Foresight, commented:“While there is a high degree of uncertainty related to any projection for how the current situation in the UK could evolve over the coming months, these forecasts set out to support charities in assessing what this could mean for their legacy incomes.“The scenarios outline a plausible range of outcomes but, on balance, we believe that outcomes towards the lower end of the income range are most likely. We will monitor developments relating to COVID-19, the economy and estate administration processes in particular over the coming weeks.” Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Commenting on the revised forecast, Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, said:“The coronavirus is likely to have a significant impact on each and every charity. For those that rely on legacy income, we are seeing not only a major threat to future income, but that the current flow of income from gifts in Wills has effectively been switched off mid flow. The sale of property, stocks and shares are all in limbo, with social distancing making it all the more challenging for estates to be finalised and legacy gifts from being passed on to charities named in Wills.“At the same time, the sector is seeing a huge surge in public demand for charitable Wills. Although it’s an incredibly challenging time, if we continue to see charities doing what they do best – supporting their communities (beneficiaries and donors alike) – they will be in the best possible position to recover, working together to inspire the nation to ensure charities’ work lives on by leaving a gift in their Will.”  918 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  917 total views,  2 views todaylast_img read more

Defend Venezuela

first_imgVenezuelaAccording to a May 3 Reuters article, “An influential group of Republican and Democratic U.S. senators introduced sweeping legislation … to address the crisis in Venezuela, including sanctioning individuals responsible for undermining democracy or involved in corruption.”The quote cited needs translation, as it really means: Some top Senate millionaire hawks want to grab workers’ taxes to overthrow the elected, popular government of Venezuela.That U.S. imperialism works to undermine the Bolivarian government in Caracas is nothing new. Washington even promoted a military coup against Hugo Chávez in 2002. The Venezuelan people smashed the coup and strengthened Venezuela’s revolution.Earlier and much greater funding for the U.S. efforts at regime change — that is, counterrevolution — have been buried in the budgets of the CIA, AID and other organs of undercover imperialist intervention disguised as promoters of “democracy.” Now, Senate promoters of imperialist intervention like Republicans Marco Rubio and John McCain and Democrats Ben Cardin and Dick Durbin are giving the U.S. covert effort the Senate’s open blessing.Anyone who thinks the Senate aims to save democracy should think again about its agenda. Soon, the Senate will reach some rotten compromise on the new “Health Care” Act. The millionaire senators will determine how many million U.S. residents too poor to pay medical costs should be kicked into the nearest grave.Does the Senate really aim to stop governmental corruption? It could start by doing something to stop the Trump family gang from profiting on everything from casinos to golf courses to stays at hotels with the presidential brand.No, what the Senate is taking aim at is Venezuela’s sovereignty and independence. The Senate hates any attempt by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to better the lives of the poor people of that country at the cost of the oligarchs and imperialism.In collusion with Venezuela’s rich and reactionaries, U.S. imperialism has disrupted the country’s economy. In collusion with the corporate media, it has exaggerated the depth of the crisis to create a pretext for intervention. In collusion with the Organization of American States — another U.S. creation — it has targeted the Venezuelan government for “regime change.”For those who want to defend the independence of countries to the south of the United States, it is essential at this time to defend the Bolivarian government of Venezuela from this imperialist attack.Down with the Senate plan for sanctions!U.S. hands off Venezuela!¡Chávez presente!¡Maduro presidente!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Their mantra is “We dance for those who can’t.” Dance Marathon has honored Helland since she died the morning of the event in 2016.“It’s so important to us that she’s not forgotten and these wonderful people here make it to where she’s loved and supported,” Helland’s mother said. “It just makes our heart so happy.”“Choose Joy” T-shirts are often seen around TCU’s campus as a way to honor Helland.“Remembering Taylor is something that I think is so prevalent at TCU’s campus because of the impact she made on so many people,” Hargis said. “Being a senior now, two years later, it’s the most humbling, amazing feeling to see that her legacy is still living on at TCU.” CASA of Tarrant County advocates for children in foster care Previous articleFrogs First applications to close next weekNext articleStudents working to build outdoor basketball court on campus Taylor Boser RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history TAGScancer last_img read more
