We expect some disinflation in categories like recreation. Overall we see a drop to 2.8 per cent this time, but the buoyancy of agricultural prices risks inflation climbing past three per cent again over the coming months.”PETER DIXON | COMMERZBANK“Over the rest of 2010, we look for inflation to decelerate further with a rate close to two per cent possible by December. A spike in early 2011 is likely because of the VAT hike but at least a sharp deceleration beforehand will bolster the Bank’s claim that much of inflation is due to temporary factors.” last_img read more

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 9th May, 2021 Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge As the UK economy rebuilds after the coronavirus crisis, I’ve been looking for FTSE 250 stocks to add to my portfolio. Here are five companies I’d buy right now. FTSE 250 shares to buyThe first stock on my list is drinks business Britvic. This company owns some of the most recognisable drinks brands in the UK. Therefore, I think its profits should return to growth as the UK economy reopens and consumer confidence improves.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…The one major challenge the group could face as we advance is higher costs. These may hurt its growth in the next few months, and possibly years. However, it should be able to raise prices to offset higher costs.As such, I would buy the company for my portfolio of FTSE 250 stocks.Another recovery play I would buy in the FTSE 250 is Cineworld. When cinemas are eventually allowed to reopen at full capacity, this company should experience a recovery in profits and sales.That said, this stock might not be suitable for all investors. The company has built up a tremendous amount of debt throughout the crisis, and it could be some time before profits return to 2019 levels. Nonetheless, I’d buy the stock for its recovery potential.I’d also buy shares in FTSE 250 airline easyJet for the same reason. The company is a high-risk, high-reward investment. It could be years before the airline returns to 2019 levels of profitability. During that time, there’s no telling what could happen to the business.Still, as a recovery play, I think easyJet’s well-known brand and reputation for low-cost, no-frills air travel will work in its favour. These are the primary reasons why I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today. Growth investments Domino’s Pizza is one company that seems to have prospered in the pandemic. Despite the economic lockdowns, the group’s underlying profit before tax rose to £101m last year, up from £99m in 2019.I’ve always been impressed by its business model, which has helped the firm expand revenues by 40% in the past five years.Past performance should never be used as a guide to future potential, but I think the group can maintain its growth trajectory. That’s why I’d buy the company for my portfolio of FTSE 250 stocks.However, Domino’s is facing more and more competition, making it harder for the business to grow. I think that’s the main challenge facing the company today. The final company I’d buy is Morgan Sindall. I think this construction business should benefit from increased economic activity in the UK, as well as the government’s massive infrastructure spending plans.The main challenge it faces is the potential for higher costs, which could hit profit margins.Construction is also a low-margin business, so any slowdown in sales could have a big effect on the group’s bottom line. However, despite these risks, I think the company is one of the best FTSE 250 stocks to play the UK economic recovery.

Cut the Sugar: Reducing the Sweet Stuff In Your Diet

first_img May 8, 2018 at 3:53 pm Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. TAGSFlorida Hospital – ApopkaSugar Previous articleThe origins of Cinco de MayoNext articleTouch forms the foundation of the powerful human-horse relationship Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR America’s beverage companies agree that it’s important for people to be mindful of their sugar intake. There are many choices with little to no sugar at all, and some in smaller portion sizes. We are committed to being part of real solutions to public health challenges with initiatives like Balance Calories – an initiative to reduce the calories Americans consume from beverages nationally by 20 percent by 2025. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 For years, we’ve heard the warnings about consuming too much sugar. There’s just one problem: we may not always know when sugar is in the foods and beverages we keep in our home. Reducing the amount of table sugar we sprinkle on our breakfast cereal and other foods is one thing, but knowing where added sugar lurks in our diets is a much harder task.American adults get about 13 percent of their total daily calories from added sugars. Here’s a look at what they are, where and how to find them, and a few ways you can cut the sugar in your diet.Sugar 101Sugar comes in many more forms than the granulated white stuff you probably keep in your cupboard. Whether natural or processed, sugar is a carbohydrate that your body uses for energy. Some sugars are found organically in foods such as fruits, vegetables, and dairy products. Added sugars – which simply means sugars that are added to foods as they are being processed or prepared – have a much different effect on the body than natural sugars.Scientific evidence strongly points to a cause-and-effect between added sugars and obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high triglycerides, tooth decay, and other health problems.Foods with lots of added sugars contribute extra calories to your diet while providing little to no nutritional value – what we refer to as “empty calories.” A great way of finding out your daily required calories is this advanced TDEE calculator.How Added Sugars Harm Your HealthScientific evidence strongly points to a cause-and-effect between added sugars and obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high triglycerides, tooth decay and other health problems. Foods with lots of added sugars contribute extra calories to your diet while providing little to no nutritional value – what we refer to as “empty calories.”Where Are Added Sugars Found?It would be a monumental task to list all of the foods and beverages in our modern diets that contain added sugars. According to the American Heart Association, here are some of the top offenders:Soft drinks, energy drinks, and sport drinksFruit drinks and some fruit juicesCandyBaked desserts (such as cakes, cookies, and pies)Dairy desserts and sweetened dairy products (such as ice cream, flavored yogurts, and sweetened milks)Breakfast foods (such as some cereals, toaster pastries and flavored waffles)These are just a few examples, so be sure to check nutrition labels for added sugars before you put an item in your grocery cart.Decoding Nutrition Labels for Added SugarIt’s no secret that nutrition labels can be confusing to read. When it comes to sugar, the total number of grams in a product doesn’t tell the whole story.Erica Hechler, MS, RDN, CDE, LD, CCP explains, “the current nutrition label does not differentiate between naturally occurring sugars vs. sugars that have been added to the food in processing. It groups them all together as ‘sugars’. This can make it difficult to choose foods that have less ‘added sugars’. The research on sugars and its detrimental effects on health are related to added sugars, as they are an empty source of calories, less on the naturally occurring sugars such as those found in fruits, vegetables, milk and yogurt.”That’s why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will soon revise its food labels to include the total grams of added sugars a food product contains. You can also read the product ingredients to find out which types of sugar it contains. Added sugar goes by many different names, based on its form and preparation. These include:“-ose” sugars: fructose, glucose, maltose, and dextroseHigh-fructose corn syrup or corn sweetenersCane juice or cane syrupFruit juice concentrate and nectarsHoneyMalt SyrupMolassesPeople are often surprised that honey, a natural food, is lumped into the list of added sugars. But honey is no better than white sugar and other types of sugar, nutritionally speaking.How Much Added Sugar is Too Much?Just about every medical association urges consumers to minimize sugar, but specific recommendations vary. The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans sets the limit at 10 percent of your daily calories. (As an example, if you consume a 2,000-calorie daily diet, no more than 200 calories per day should come from added sugars.)The American Heart Association takes a stricter approach, recommending no more than 100 calories per day of added sugar for most women and no more than 150 calories per day for most men. That breaks down to around six teaspoons for women and nine teaspoons for men. Just think: a 12-ounce soda has about 160 calories or about 10 teaspoons of sugar, which means a single can will put you over the daily intake limit.“The new food label is going to give us a lot of useful information in the future. It will soon include a section called ‘added sugars’ which will give us information about the amount of sugar, in grams, that was added to the food in processing. If we take a look at this part of the label and aim for less than about 24 grams of added sugar for women and less than 36 grams for men per day we can keep to the above-mentioned guidelines. In general, try to choose foods with the lowest amounts of ‘added sugars’” says, Hechler.Since sugar is labeled in grams, not teaspoons, here’s a simple trick: four grams of sugar equals one teaspoon. Take the total grams of sugar and divide it by four to calculate the number of teaspoons contained inside. You just might be shocked by what you find.Reducing Added Sugar in Your DietReady for some simple ways to cut the sugar in your diet? The next time you go to the grocery store, keeping the following in mind:Drink water or other calorie-free drinks (such as home-brewed teas) instead of canned or bottled soft drinks, energy drinks, and sports drinks.Read fruit juice labels to make sure there is no added sugar. Or, swap the juice for whole fruit to get even more fiber and nutrients.Say no to sugary and frosted breakfast cereals. Opt for lower-sugar options instead.Replace sugary syrups, jams, jellies, and preserves with reduced-sugar varieties.For dessert, cut back on cakes, cookies, pies and ice cream in favor of naturally sweet fresh fruit.Choose canned fruit packed in water or juice rather than syrup.At snack time, opt for veggies, fruits, whole-grain crackers and low-fat cheese instead of candies, pastries, and other sweets.

DC Farm Bill Frustration Mounting

first_img SHARE DC Farm Bill Frustration Mounting SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jan 17, 2018 Facebook Twitter DC-farm-bill-frustrationMuch of what makes news in Washington is connected to creating further delays in writing a new farm bill. One example right now is the lack of a budget deal to keep the government open, and add immigration and border wall disputes to the mix as well. Farm bills are never easy to write, and some have taken a couple of years or more to enact. This is also an election year, never an easy time to do any legislating.Senate ag committee member Chuck Grassley from Iowa was asked how you write a farm bill with no budget certainty, especially if current funding is simply extended another few weeks.“I sense exactly what you’re saying from something I picked up, maybe directly or indirectly from Senator Roberts last week, that it’s kind of frustrating,” Grassley responded. “That’s about all I can say on that issues at this point.”Grassley said in December a farm bill was already three months late due to work on the tax bill, and a new farm bill needed to be done in the first half of this year, so producers could plan for the 2019 crop year. Grassley said at the time, “we can’t horse around any longer.” He continued that theme this week.“We need to start on policy and then adjust our policy to whatever comes out of that figure that we have to work with because I think we’ve got to get started on a farm bill.”Still, that won’t be easy without accurate numbers.“There’s 39 programs in the farm bill that don’t have any money in the budget, so if you’re going to fund anything, the money’s got to come from someplace else, and we don’t even have a budget figure yet to work with.”House lawmakers had planned to start formal drafting of a farm bill late this month or in early February. But the top House Ag Democrat suggested in December, some Senate Democrats might want to drag their feet, hoping for a majority next year.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleTrump Falling Behind on USDA NomineesNext articleKron Worried About Lack of Farm Bill Action Andy Eubank Home Indiana Agriculture News DC Farm Bill Frustration Mounting Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Media monitoring resumes as second-round campaign gets under way

first_img Organisation News Reports Côte d’IvoireAfrica Help by sharing this information Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire News to go further Receive email alerts The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africacenter_img Côte d’IvoireAfrica RSF_en When the campaign for the second round of Côte d’Ivoire’s presidegntial election officially gets under way tomorrow, Reporters Without Borders will begin the second phase of its monitoring of the state and privately-owned media’s campaign coverage as part of a European Union project for the “Protection of media pluralism at election time.”The first phase of the monitoring began on 15 October and ran until two days before the first round. The second phase will finish on 26 November, two days before the run-off election between the head of The Presidential Majority (LMP), incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo, and the head of the Houphouëtiste Rally for Democracy and Peace (RHDP), Alassane Ouattara.Reporters Without Borders is concerned to see that, during the run-up to the official start of the second-round campaign, several newspapers have revived story subjects and slogans that are likely to fuel tension. More space has been given to ethnic issues and to allegations that one or other of the candidates wants to “destabilize” Côte d’Ivoire.The press freedom organization urges the National Press Council to continue to exercise the utmost vigilance in order to prevent matters getting out of hand and to ensure that the election campaign is covered in a responsible manner that respects journalistic ethics and the rules of media conduct.Reporters Without Borders has also noticed during this period that La Première (the main state-owned TV station) and La Nationale (the main state-owned radio station) have been displaying a strong bias in favour of President Gbagbo and his allies in terms of both the quantity and the quality of their coverage.The organization reminds the two stations that, as public service broadcasters, they are required to remain entirely neutral during the elections and urges them to take immediate steps to ensure respect for directives issued by the National Broadcasting Council (CNCA) calling for the two candidates to be covered in an equitable way.Reporters Without Borders does however welcome the CNCA’s decision to organize a debate between Gbagbo and Ouattara on La Première and La Nationale and encourages the CNCA to exercise its role as regulator with the utmost impartiality.See the findings of the media monitoring during the campaign for the first round MissionReporters Without Borders began monitoring the Ivorian media on 15 October and will continue to do so until the end of the presidential election. Its quantitative and qualitative monitoring is being carried out in Abidjan by a team of observers, who are evaluating the air-time that the public radio and TV stations allocate to the political parties and movements participating in the election. They are also evaluating the space allocated by the public-service daily Fraternité Matin and a number of privately-owned dailies. The aim is to ensure respect for the principle of fairness in the state media and balance in the privately-owned media.MethodologyReporters Without Borders is observing and measuring the air-time that the candidates get in all the French-language programmes relating to the elections on the state-owned TV station La Première and the state-owned radio station La Nationale. As regards the print media, it is measuring and comparing the column space that each candidate and their supporters and allies get in the public-service daily Fraternité Matin and in a number of privately-owned dailies: Le Nouveau Réveil, Le Patriote and Notre Voie during the first-round campaign, and L’Intelligent d’Abidjan, Soir Info and Nord-Sud during the second-round campaign. It is also carrying out a qualitative evaluation of the tone used by the journalists and media in their references to the candidates.
