Why is the Boohoo share price up today and would I buy the shares? Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The Boohoo (LSE:BOO) share price is climbing following its latest announcement. The online fashion retailer has acquired Debenhams in an all-cash acquisition for £55m. With VAT, the total cost comes to around £66m.But does this acquisition make sense to me, did Boohoo pay a fair price, and would I buy?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Boohoo buys DebenhamsSince Boohoo is an online retailer, it has little need for physical stores. So the Debenhams properties are not included in this deal. But what is included is the Debenhams brand, additional intellectual property, and customer data. In my opinion, the latter is where the real value lies.The Debenhams website has over 300 million annual visits. That makes it one of the top 10 online fashion stores in the UK. And now, all of those visits and, more importantly, customers belong to Boohoo.In 2020 Boohoo made £1.23bn in gross revenue. Combining that with Debenhams’ online revenues of £400m represents a 33% boost in top-line income. The management team has stated the acquisition presents a “fantastic opportunity”. Given these figures, I’d agree.But the acquisition is certainly not without risk. Around a quarter of Debenhams revenue originates from its beauty and homewares segments, neither of which Boohoo has any significant experience in. This could become a serious problem that will affect the Boohoo share price if, for instance, it’s unable to successfully maintain relationships with premium beauty brands and its marketplace ambitions come to fruition more slowly than expected.Inspecting the acquisition priceOverall Debenhams generated gross revenue of £1.52bn in 2020 from both its physical and online stores. But only around £12.7m was underlying profit. Needless to say, that’s, a pretty terrible operating profit margin of less than 1%. That’s another risk.But Boohoo does start with an advantage. It doesn’t have any physical stores and doesn’t have to pay large rental fees. And as an online pureplay, nor did it need to borrow money to acquire any physical locations in the first place. As a result, it operates with a significantly higher margin of 7.4%.If (and it’s a big ‘if’) all of Debenhams’ online revenue can be absorbed without loss. At a 7.4% profit margin, the underlying income would be around £29.6m. And since Boohoo only spent around £66m for the business, it has essentially paid a P/E ratio of 2.23. That looks cheap to me!Is the Boohoo share price too low?That being said, Boohoo has a lot of challenges ahead of it. Even at the low price it paid for Debenhams, it doesn’t change the fact that Covid-19 has created one of the worst business environments for fashion. Not to mention integrating such a large business into its platform is going to create complications, at least initially.However, if a smooth and successful integration is achieved, then the current Boohoo share price looks quite undervalued in my eyes. Given the growth potential this acquisition offers, I think the risk might be worth the reward. Therefore at the current price, Boohoo is a stock I would consider adding to my portfolio.

Tasha Kama says: Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 [Episcopal News Service] What began as a small gathering with a big dream has transformed into a commitment by millions of Christians around the world to pray for one another.First begun in 1908, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity runs Jan.18-25 with hundreds of celebrations and gatherings: from Houston to Boston; Waterloo, Belgium, to the Vatican; in Episcopal and Roman Catholic cathedrals and churches; with United Methodists and Lutherans and scores of other denominations.“The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity reminds us every year that it is Jesus’ prayer for us all to be one,” said the Rev. David Simmons, rector of St. Matthias Episcopal Church in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and president of the Episcopal Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Officers Association. “The idea of Roman Catholics and Protestants sitting down and praying together 150 years ago was almost unthinkable. Today, so much has changed. It’s a time to celebrate how far we’ve come, and a time to look at the long road ahead of us.”The 2017 Week of Prayer poster. The image this year reminds the viewer of the universe that is seeking to join together in the unity of Christ’s love and is being compelled by Christ to be reconciled. Created by the Reliance Graphic Design of Canon, Georgia.Although it’s difficult to determine exactly how many Episcopal congregations are participating in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, numerous services are planned across the country and around the world. In Wisconsin, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Roman Catholics, and United Methodists will come together to host a Taizé service on Jan. 25. All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Waterloo, Belgium, will offer an ecumenical worship service on Jan. 18, with a forum led by an Anglican scholar and religion historian.Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, Texas, opens its doors for a Unity Service on Jan. 18. Although this is the fourth year for the Concert of Praise and Ecumenical Prayer Service in Houston, it’s the first time that the Episcopal cathedral is hosting.The cathedral considers the opportunity an honor and privilege, said the Rev. Art Callaham, canon vicar. Generally, the Houston community uses the liturgy prepared and offered by the international Week of Prayer for Christian Unity organizers. But the music is reflective of particular traditions. This year, the service will offer the liturgical experience of choral evensong – a deeply Anglican tradition.“There was a lot of head-scratching and wondering when we first mentioned this idea,” admitted Callaham. “It’s not common in a lot of the Christian traditions. But the service not only gives us this unified experience of worshiping and praying together, but we have an opportunity to share what makes and keeps our traditions unique.”Callaham recalls the words of St. Paul that each gives according to ability. “This applies at both the individual level but also the congregational and denominational level,” he said. “We have a variety of gifts. … When we see these all knit together, it is a beautiful thing. We are not trying to rub out what makes us different to create some homogenous whole, but rather when we act of our giftedness, we bring together our differences into something that none of can create or support individually.”Indeed, for the Rev. Margaret Rose, deputy for ecumenical and interreligious relations for the Episcopal Church, this understanding of ecumenism is a guiding principle.“Ecumenical work is not so much about creating something that has not been before, but about revealing what God created in the beginning,” she said. “We find ways to explore our unity, not conformity.”The theme of this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity builds upon that concept: It honors the 500th anniversary of the beginnings of the Reformation. “Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us,” calls on Christians to examine the concerns that sparked the Reformation and to acknowledge the pain caused by deep divisions among Christians.The Rev. Paul James Francis Wattson, SA, was the founder of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which traces its history to 1908.The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity traces its history to 1908, when the Rev. Paul James Francis Wattson, then an Episcopal priest, initiated the Church Unity Octave. Wattson founded a religious order, the Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Atonement at Graymoor in Garrison, New York, in the late 1800s. Committed to a reconciliation between the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches, he believed that “a time set aside for prayers and seminars would hasten Christian unity,” according to the Graymoor Ecumenical Interreligious Institute. Wattson was joined by the Rev. Spencer Jones, an Anglican priest serving in England, in promoting and advocating for the week of prayer.Wattson ultimately was ordained into the Roman Catholic tradition, but his commitment to ecumenism continued. The founders decided to settle the event between the feast of the Chair of St. Peter on Jan. 18 and the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul on Jan. 25.“It was such a breakthrough when these prayers for unity first started,” said Richard Mammana, secretary of the Episcopal Diocesan Ecumenical and Interreligious Association. “There was a lot of hesitation about Christians even praying together, let alone collaborating on projects. … But from the very beginning, Paul Wattson said, ‘We can do this very basic thing. We can pray together.’ ”This devoted time to praying together has begun to break down barriers, said Mammana. “We begin to see we have more in common across denominations than we imagined.”Over the years, Rose has seen the rise and wane of interest in ecumenism and participation in the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.“We’re back on the rise,” said Rose. “We understand the need for conversation. We are in a very divisive time, and the need for Christians to find a way to have a common voice, especially in prayer, is critical. We are in deep need of reconciliation.”Further, said Simmons, many denominations are shrinking in size and influence in this post-Christian age.“The reality of this time is forcing us to work together,” said Simmons. “In small-town Wisconsin, we used to have the luxury of each denomination having its own congregation and pastor. That’s no longer the case.”Regardless of what is prompting an ecumenical revival, Simmons is excited about the opportunities to collaborate with other denominations on issues of poverty and hunger, the status of women, and other areas of advocacy.“The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is a way for us to liturgically remember the reality of what we’re trying to live into. The real work of ecumenism is what happens day-to-day among churches in communities,” said Simmons. “It’s not an end in itself. It’s supposed to lead us into greater conversation. But it’s a good place to start.”– Richelle Thompson is deputy director and managing editor of Forward Movement.

Japan’s hat-trick hero awarded Man of the Match by none other than Dan Carter

first_imgFriday Sep 20, 2019 Japan’s hat-trick hero awarded Man of the Match by none other than Dan Carter Winger Kotaro Matsushima became the first ever Japan player to score a hat-trick at a Rugby World Cup, as Japan beat Russia 30-10 in the opening game.ADVERTISEMENTRussia scored early, with their fifth minute try being the quickest ever in a Rugby World Cup opening match. But while it was a tight first half, Japan looked comfortable in the second.South African born flyer Matsushima crossed four times but had one try disallowed. He was later awarded the Mastercard Player of the Match, by New Zealand legend Dan Carter.“Most of the job was from the forwards,” he said post match. He was correct too, as the Japan front row made 32 tackles and didn’t miss one between them.Japan have now won their opening matches in the last two World Cups, after not having won any of their opening matches in the previous seven tournaments they took part in.

ReddIt Facebook Robbie Vaglio Twitter What to watch during quarantine printThree weeks into March and TCU women’s basketball is in the midst of a postseason run, taking the “survive and advance” ideology to heart.“This is a ‘hurry and wait’ type of feeling,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Once you win, you’re waiting to see who you’re playing and you’re preparing for them once you find that out.”As the squad looks to keep their momentum alive, Pebley’s squad has one goal: to stay true to themselves.Raegan Pebley watches her team during the team’s open practice. (Photo by Benton McDonald.)“You don’t try to reinvent the wheel or change too much, you try to stay true to who you are so your team can be confident on the court,” Pebley said.The focus seems to have paid off as the team kicked off the tournament with two victories, a 12-point victory over Lamar and a 34-point clobbering of Missouri State.Hot shooting propelled the team to victory over Lamar while defensive efficiency was a huge factor in silencing Missouri State.The team shot 61 percent from the field against Lamar, a postseason program record and good for fourth best overall in team history. The Frogs forced Missouri State to commit 18 turnovers, six above their season average.Jordan Moore practices her free throws at the team’s open practice. (Photo by Benton McDonald.)“Chemistry has been a huge strength of our team all season,” Pebley said. “We’ve been resilient. They fight hard for each other and play selfless basketball. They share the ball really well.”Pebley knows that each game from this point forward will be a challenge for the team.“It’s just going to get tougher,” Pebley said. “Everyone is good this time of year. Any team you play is good defensively and do things similar to us, so we just need to have that will to continue to play with our identity and play strong.”TCU’s third round opponent is still yet to be determined. The team will discover their third round fate Tuesday night following the matchup between New Mexico State and Rice.Pebley is not worried about the time off as the team could use the extended break.“That definitely adds an element of surprise when you’re not sure who or where you’re going to play,” Pebley said. “It doesn’t matter where we play, we’ll fight them on the ice.

Authorities reluctantly release detained newspaper reporter

first_img November 27, 2020 Find out more RSF_en November 12, 2020 Find out more Organisation November 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities reluctantly release detained newspaper reporter Reporters Without Borders welcomes the news that The Standard reporter Nqobani Ndlovu, who was arrested in the southwestern city of Bulawayo on 17 November after writing an article questioning police recruiting, was finally released on 26 November. The judge in charge of the case ruled on 22 November that he could be freed, but the police appealed against her decision, asking for his detention to be extended for another seven days under section 121 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act.Reporters Without Borders hails judge Nicholas Mathonsi’s 26 November decision to reject the appeal and free Ndlovu.———————————————————————-23-11-2010- Journalist kept in prison despite judicial release orderReporters Without Borders today condemned the continued detention of Nqobani Ndlovu, the Bulawayo correspondent of the independent weekly The Standard, in defiance of a magistrate’s order releasing him on bail.The journalist is being held in Khami prison in the south-western city and is suffering from diarrhoea. He was arrested on 17 November three days after his by-lined article appeared in The Standard in which he said the police had cancelled the annual promotion process and instead recruited war veterans and retired police officers, allegedly to help President Robert Mugabe’s party win elections in 2011. Ndlovu was charged with defaming the police chief, Gen. Augustine Chihuri, and the police force in general under Articles 96 (1) (a) and 31 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act. The worldwide press freedom organisation appealed for the journalist’s release and called for an independent justice system free from political pressure. Magistrate Sibongile Msipa on Monday 22 November ordered Ndlovu’s release on bail of 100 US dollars but under house arrest at his home in Pumula, basing her decision on the fact that the journalist had voluntarily turned himself in to the police. Police immediately invoked section 121 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act (CPEA) to extend his period of custody for a further seven days. They claimed that the journalist, who faced 20 years in prison, was at risk of absconding. However the judge had earlier said that that if found guilty he would be sentenced to a maximum term of two years. He is due back in court on 29 November. Reporters Without Borders joined the journalist’s lawyer, Josphat Tshuma, in condemning this abusive use of legislation. The lawyer added that the authorities had demanded that the journalist reveal his sources of information, which he had refused to do, citing professional ethics. Reporters Without Borders is concerned about his health and called for him to be released as quickly as possible. Dumisani Sibanda, bureau chief in Bulawayo of the Alpha Media Holdings (AMH) and president of the Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ), was briefly held and questioned by police about the same article on 16 November. Police also began an investigation against the editor of The Standard, Nevanji Madanhire, who has stayed away from the newspaper’s office since then. The Standard, Newsday and The Zimbabwe Independent are all owned by AMH. “We are deeply concerned about the detention of Nqobani Ndlovu, the manhunt against Nevanji Madanhire and the questioning of Dumisani Sibandi”, said Jean-François Julliard, secretary general of the organisation. “It seems that President Mugabe and his supporters are determined to stop observing the power-sharing agreement under which the coalition government was created in February 2009. Roger Mugabe is trying to weaken critical voices by harassing journalists.” Robert Mugabe is on the organisation’s list of press freedom predators.
