RETAILER John Lewis said sales growth slowed last week, as a strike on London Underground and a brief Indian summer meant fewer shoppers in its stores.The employee-owned company, traditionally seen as a bellwether of the UK retail sector but which has outperformed competitors for over a year, said on Friday sales at its 28 department stores and two “at home” stores rose 7.2 per cent to £59.5m in the week to 9 October. That compares with growth of 13.9, 15.1 and 11.7 per cent in the previous three weeks respectively.“The tube strike on Monday (4 October) in London, added to the relatively good weather compared to a year ago, contributed to lower footfall in our shops,” said buying and brand director Peter Ruis.“However, the fantastically strong John Lewis Direct (Internet) sales (up 46 per cent) must give us confidence that consumer spending is still strong despite the potential impact of the upcoming public sector cuts,” he said.A survey on Wednesday said consumer confidence fell in September to its lowest level in a year, while one on Tuesday said retail sales growth halved in the same month, as uncertainty ahead of the government’s October 20 review made shoppers nervous.John Lewis also owns the 234-store Waitrose supermarket chain. Here sales rose 9.6 per cent to £92.8m underlining its status as one of the UK’s fastest growing grocers.Commercial director Mark Williamson said the outcome was boosted by the firm’s “Brand Price Match” campaign, where 1,000 branded lines are price matched with Tesco, Britain’s biggest retailer.Sales were also boosted by consumers eating in on Saturday to watch popular television shows “X Factor” and “Strictly Come Dancing,” with sales of pizza up 30 per cent and Italian ready-meals up 23 per cent. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times whatsapp Friday 15 October 2010 4:44 am whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL John Lewis sales stalled by strike and sunshine More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.com John Dunne

But the Church is seeking to change this through a new Youth Evangelism Task Group chaired by the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham, Paul Williams; who has also become the lead bishop on youth evangelism. The Church has also appointed a national Youth Evangelism Officer, Jimmy Dale, as part of “structural change” designed to tackle “the challenge the Church of England faces in reaching and discipling young people.”Read the full article here.

The situation has already led to higher crude oil prices, which typically raises the cost of producing gasoline.Florida gas prices climbed an average of 7 cents per gallon in the past three days. That increase was set into motion before the US airstrikes last week, by crude price hikes that occurred in December.Once news broke that the US carried out attacks on Iran, crude prices surged nearly $2 per barrel on Friday. An increase of that magnitude can directly trigger a 5 cent hike at the pump. The US benchmark for crude (WTI) eventually settled at $63.05 per barrel – the highest daily settlement since May 2019. It’s worth reporting that some of this increase was influenced by another week of lower US crude inventories, but the situation in the Middle East was the top story.“What happens in the Middle East can have a direct impact on Americans’ daily lives, by influencing what they pay at the pump,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Many people don’t realize that half of what they pay for every gallon of gasoline is determined by the price of oil. Even though the US is producing oil at a record pace, that oil is bought and sold on the stock market, which is heavily influenced by global supply and demand. Crude prices rise when there’s a threat of war, because of concerns over how the conflict could hamper supply and demand.“It’s still far too early to know how much of an impact this conflict will have overall on prices at the pump,” Jenkins continued. “We’ll likely have a better idea early this week. Some analysts are anticipating a ‘Manic Monday’ on the stock market, with many financial and physical traders returning from vacation. Either way, volatility should be expected with both oil and gasoline through January, at the very least. If geopolitical tensions continue to escalate, crude prices may rise and drag gasoline along for the ride.”Florida drivers are currently paying the highest prices for gasoline since early December. The state average of $2.53 is 30 cents per gallon more than this time last year. The reason for this disparity can be found in the price of oil, which is currently $20 per barrel more than it was in January 2019.As a result, gas prices are off to their most expensive start to a new year since 2014.Regional PricesMost expensive metro markets – West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.63), Pensacola ($2.56), Port St. Lucie ($2.56)Least expensive metro markets – Jacksonville ($2.49), Orlando ($2.50), Fort Myers-Cape Coral ($2.50)Find Florida Gas PricesDaily gas price averages can be found at Gasprices.aaa.comState and metro averages can be found here You have entered an incorrect email address!

Burnett said that so far the site had been conceived and built by “just a few volunteers working very part-time”. A grant from a private trust has now given SOFII the opportunity to recruit someone to work on the project full-time and Burnett said it would be refined and improved all the time.Anyone can register for the site and there is no charge.

News Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela Receive email alerts Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives VenezuelaAmericas News VenezuelaAmericas June 15, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Venezuela August 25, 2020 Find out more RSF_en News New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets January 13, 2021 Find out more October 2, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government likens media coverage of shortages to “war propaganda” Organisation News Help by sharing this information to go further Globovisión, a TV station that is used to being harassed by the National Communications Commission (CONATEL) and other government agencies, has been the target of a new CONATEL investigation since 30 September.The station is facing a possible fine of up to 10 per cent of its annual income for its coverage of the shortages of food, electricity and other essentials that Venezuela is currently suffering. Those affected include the print media, especially local newspapers, which are finding it hard to obtain newsprint.President Nicolás Maduro criticized coverage of the shortages shortly before CONATEL began its investigation. Alluding to offences defined in the Radio, TV and Electronic Media Social Responsibility Law (RESORTEMEC), he described the coverage as “war propaganda (…) liable to spread panic among the public” and encourage “compulsive buying.”Arguments of this kind were used in the past to impose generalized censorship in a case of alleged contamination of drinking water.“A badly drafted law is yet again being used to justify the government’s calls for censorship,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities think that just referring to the shortages is tantamount to ‘destabilizing the country’ and ‘panicking’ a public that is too ignorant to understand the situation. So they assume the right to decide what is in the public interest and what media coverage can be tolerated.“This censorship is all the more serious now that Venezuelan citizens no longer have the ability to challenge it under the Inter-American human rights system, from which Venezuela withdrew on 10 September. Will the Venezuelan media be reduced to doing nothing more than carrying the official announcements known as cadenas?”This latest problem represents a new setback for the media at a time when they are facing economic and political problems.On the economic front, the shortage of newsprint has forced some newspapers to cut back or even suspend production altogether. This is the case with the Maturín-based daily Diario El Sol and the Anzoátegui-based daily La Antorcha, which have not been on sale since August. Some newspapers, such as the Barquisimeto-based El Impulso, have cut back on the number of pages. Others have reduced the number of issues. They include the Anzoátegui-based La Prensa, which has dropped its weekend issue.On the political front, President Maduro announced on 10 September that all broadcast media would soon be required to carry two cadenas every day. These official messages, which are abused for propaganda purposes, have never been subject any regulation as regards frequency, length or content.Closures of radio stations by the authorities are also fuelling the climate of concern. Four stations in the state of Amazonas – La Voz del Orinoco, Chamánica, La Deportiva and Impacto – had to stop broadcasting in September as a result of CONATEL’s intervention. In each case, their frequencies were withdrawn and equipment was seized.

Journalists covering the fighting there are now also required to obtain accreditation from the military. “As long as journalists report statements that are not calls for violence or murder, they are just respecting their fellow citizens’ basic right to be informed,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to the Indonesian defence and security minister, Juwono Sudarsono. “We ask you to ensure that journalists can continue to work normally in this region, despite the state of emergency,” he added.The restrictions on the press in Aceh province (at the northern tip of Sumatra Island) were announced yesterday by Gen. Endang Suwarya, the officer in charge of implementing martial law in Aceh, where it was introduced on 19 May. Citing legislation governing states of emergency, he banned journalists from quoting the GAM’s spokespersons for the duration of the state of emergency.He said Indonesia’s interests must be paramount in all press coverage. “I demand that all news reports support the nationalist spirit. The interests of the unitary state must come first. No credibility may be accorded to the GAM’s statements, which constantly twist the facts,” the general said.Several news organisation have already had problems since the restrictions were announced. Soldiers threatened reporters from the privately-owned television station Metro TV with expulsion from the province for filming a group of people with GAM logos on their clothes. The people concerned were helping to put out a fire at one of the many schools that have been torched since the start of the army’s offensive. The daily newspaper Serambi Indonesia also received a strong reprimand for alleged bias in favour of the separatists in its coverage of the military operations.Fighting resumed in the province after the breakdown of the peace talks between the military and the GAM held on 17 and 18 May in Tokyo. The government declared its state of emergency in Aceh the next day, and announced the start of the biggest offensive against the rebels since 1976, one aimed at wiping the GAM out.The separatist rebellion in Aceh has gone on for 26 years and has left a toll 10,000 dead, most of them civilians. The central government in Djakarta rules out any possibility of independence for the province, which is rich in hydrocarbons.
