THE HAGUE, Netherlands – Unilever, the Anglo-Dutch consumer goods multinational whose vast stable of brands includes Dove, Knorr and Ben & Jerry’s, has opted to have its sole headquarters in the Netherlands rather than Britain, ending a dual structure that goes back nearly 90 years.The company said Thursday that the decision to pick Rotterdam over London is part of a raft of structural changes that will turn it into “a simpler, more agile and more focused business.”While Unilever made no mention of Britain’s impending departure from the European Union, the decision should in practice help it manage the uncertainties of Brexit and is highly symbolic at a time of doubts over London as a global capital.Many firms with operations across the EU are worried about the potential disruption after Britain leaves the bloc in a little more than a year’s time. In a scenario where Britain and the EU fail to agree on the outlines of a future relationship, tariffs could be imposed on a host of products, hobbling supply chains and raising costs for firms.Unilever, however, argued that the move is driven by its need to simplify its structure. Last year, it vowed to slim down its organization and create more value for shareholders after rebuffing a $143 billion hostile takeover bid by rival Kraft Heinz.Besides consolidating the headquarters, it will also divide its operations into three divisions — Beauty & Personal Care, Home Care, and Foods & Refreshment.“The board believes the move to three divisions and the simplification of our corporate structure will create a simpler, more agile and more focused company with increased strategic flexibility for value-creating portfolio change,” Chairman Marijn Dekkers said.“The changes announced today also further strengthen Unilever’s corporate governance, creating for the first time in our history a ‘one share, one vote’ principle for all our shareholders.”David Cheetham, chief market analyst at XTB, said the reasoning seems “pretty logical” given that the Dutch business represents 55 per cent of Unilever’s overall share capital and that the shares listed in Amsterdam are more liquid than those in London.Though the dual headquarters will become a thing of the past, the company’s shares will continue to be traded in London. On Thursday, the share price closed down 1.7 per cent in London and 1.0 per cent in Amsterdam.“Whilst it is tempting to politicize this decision as a clear and obvious example of waning confidence in post-Brexit Britain, that would be remiss, with the simple facts being that it is purely business-based,” Cheetham said.Unilever made a point of saying that staff levels in both countries would be unaffected by the change. The company employs 7,300 people in Britain and 3,100 people in the Netherlands, out of nearly 170,000 worldwide. The company had sales in 2017 of more than 50 billion euros ($62 billion).Analysts note that besides streamlining operations, the decision could help insulate Unilever from a hostile takeover of the kind Kraft Heinz attempted — Dutch laws are considered to be tougher than British ones when it comes to takeovers.Dutch Economic Affairs Minister Eric Wiebes welcomed the announcement, saying it underscored that the Netherlands is an attractive location for big business.“Unilever is a fantastic company to have here,” Wiebes told NOS Radio. “It’s a sustainable company that focuses on long-term job creation.”The British government also had a positive take, saying that Unilever was basing its two fastest-growing divisions — Beauty and Personal Care and Home Care — in Britain and stressing that Brexit was not a factor. In a tweet, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said Unilever’s decision to base its head office in Rotterdam is “part of a long-term restructuring plan of the company and is not connected to the U.K.’s departure from the EU.”Unilever was formed in 1930 by a merger of the Dutch Margarine Unie and Britain’s Lever Brothers. That led to the company’s dual identity — with Unilever PLC in Britain and Unilever NV in the Netherlands technically separate companies but operating together thanks to a raft of agreements that allow them to share everything from brands and technology to identical boards of directors.___Pan Pylas reported from London.
FRANKFURT — The Latest on the European Central Bank’s monetary policy meeting (all times local):2:40 p.m.The European Central Bank has lowered its economic growth projections for this year and next year.The bank said Thursday it was lowering the outlook for the eurozone economy this year to 1.9 per cent from 2.0 per cent in its previous forecast in September.The projection for 2019 was lowered to 1.7 per cent from 1.8 per cent.The 19 countries that use the euro have seen growth ease to 0.2 per cent in the third quarter from the previous quarter, down from stronger growth at the end of last year. Worries about trade conflict between the U.S. and China, a possible meltdown of government finances in Italy, and a potential disorderly exit by Britain from the EU have weighed on activity.___12:25 p.m.The European Central Bank is expected to halt the stimulus program that it deployed nearly four years ago to nurture a teetering eurozone economy back to health.Analysts say the bank is likely to confirm Thursday its plan to stop the program’s monthly bond purchases at year end despite worries about growth. The program pumped 2.6 trillion euros ($3 trillion) into the economy of the 19 countries that use the euro.Attention will turn to President Mario Draghi’s news conference for clues about whether the bank might postpone its first interest rate increase.Draghi has credited the stimulus and low rates with creating 9.5 million jobs while Europe’s economy healed from a debt crisis that threatened to break up the euro. But critics in Germany say it bailed out fiscally wobbly governments.The Associated Press
Band is an important skill and outlet as the intrinsic reward is priceless. Learning to play an instrument and be a part of a band promotes confidence and skills to interact with a community that develops these students into dynamic people.The importance of this festival is for students to have the opportunity to cultivate and grow a students love of serious music making. As this is a non-competitive festival, its an environment of exposure to different performers and clinics.With many students to transport, house and feed for days, fundraising efforts are what help the school ensure their students can participate in such an event. To receive such a donation from Co-op is another step closer to getting the students to the event in April 2019.Students have been fundraising for this trip to September with bottle drives, selling first aid kits, and they are planning a bigger event in the new year which will be a dinner and or dessert theatre fundraiser.To help out with the cost of the students trip by donating please contact Bonnie Anderson our band parent coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fundraising for an upcoming Band trip to Edmonton was recently injected with a $500 donation from FSJ Co-op.Fundraising plays a big part in financing opportunities for kids to get outside of the community to learn and grow. One such event for the SD60 Band program is the Edmonton Cantando Musical Festival.North Peace has a very vibrant and nurtured musical program that starts early in middle school and with the curriculum build and maintained by several teachers; this musical program continues with a student as they grow through their education and grades.
KolkataL Those not aware of the struggles of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah have tried to create “fabricated” stories that the cadre-based party has become an individual-centric organisation, Union minister Muktar Abbas Naqvi said. Denying claims that a sense of fear prevails in the BJP, he said stories of no other senior leader apart from Modi and Shah are allowed to speak their mind are “fabricated”. Modi has been the biggest victim of “political intolerance” and a “few incidents by fringe elements” cannot be branded as intolerance against minorities, the senior BJP leader and Union minister for minority affairs told PTI in an interview. “Narendra Modi and Shah are both ground-level workers.They started their political journey as village and local level (mandal) workers. “Those who don’t know Amit Shah and Modiji (and their struggles) make such comments. They create such false and fabricated stories,” Naqvi said when asked whether a cadre-based party like the BJP has turned into a party of Modi and Shah. When asked if a sense of fear prevails in the BJP as no other leader apart from Modi and Shah are allowed to speak their mind, Naqvi said these are “fabricated stories” created by those who don’t know the prime minister and the party chief. Exuding confidence that the BJP will win more seats than 2014, Naqvi said Modi due to his good governance in the last five years has become “a very credible brand of development, good governance and stability”. “The last (general) election took place in the name of Narendra Modi, this time election is taking place on the basis of the work done by Narendra Modi. For the sake of betterment of the country, we need Narendra Modi’s government,” he said. Refuting claims that minorities are living under fear, threat and intimidation, the Union minister said that “a wrong perception was deliberately created”. “We followed the agenda of development for all without discrimination. In the last five years, not a single major communal riot has taken place in the country. “In the last five years, no major terrorist attack took place in our country, except for a few incidents in Kashmir where security forces have taken stern action,” Naqvi said. He claimed that earlier, during Congress’s rule, every 15 days there used to be a terrorist attack in India and apart from innocents being killed in these attacks, a large number of Muslim youths used to get arrested and branded as terrorists in the aftermath of these incidents. “Such incidents have never taken place in the last five years (of the Modi government),” the BJP leader said. On incidents of lynching, Naqvi said though there has been development without discrimination, “some fringe and criminal elements have tried to disrupt the agenda of development”. “Under Modiji’s rule we have not allowed such destructive agendas to get prominence, and those involved in such criminal activity, we had taken action against them,” he said. Commenting on allegations that the BJP is creating an atmosphere of intolerance, Naqvi said that “agreement and disagreements” are part of the democratic process, but, added that, Modi has been the biggest victim of political intolerance. “Modi is the biggest sufferer of political intolerance. In the last five years, the returning of awards campaign and many such campaigns are only examples of political intolerance. “Even things which were not even said by Modi or done by the BJP are termed as their statements. Neither he nor the BJP has ever said that if someone doesn’t agree with our views then he or she is anti-national,” he said. No government has ever faced so much of negativity that Modi and the present government had to face, Naqvi said, adding that despite negative campaigns, the Modi government has performed, reformed and transformed the nation. “In every democratic system agreement and disagreements are both sides of the same coin. This perception of intolerance against us is completely wrong,” he said. Last month veteran BJP leader L K Advani in a blog had said his party has never regarded those who disagreed with it politically as “anti-national” or “enemies” but only as adversaries. His comments came at a time when the BJP under Prime Minister Modi and Shah have made the issue of national security a key plank for the general elections and have often accused its political rivals of speaking the language of India’s enemies like Pakistan. Listing out achievements of the BJP government, Naqvi said the present dispensation has followed the policy of “development for all” and has been able to control inflation, price rise, corruption. It has brought back the economy on track, he said. Commenting on the violence during the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal, he said the state administration is not supporting the Election Commission in conducting free and fair polls. “Goons supported by the TMC are influencing elections in Bengal. Despite daylight killings of opposition workers, not a single culprit is being arrested.The TMC is desperate as it has sensed defeat,” he said. In a first in the country, campaigning for nine Lok Sabha seats in Bengal going to polls in the last phase came to an end at 10 pm Thursday, 20 hours before the scheduled time, in the wake of violence between BJP and TMC workers in Kolkata during Shah’s roadshow on May 14.

Pucks take funky bounces, sticks break in crucial moments and ice surfaces can vary from location to location.Home ice advantage is visible in numerous buildings, but perhaps no other arena better demonstrates the buoyant lift of enthused supporters better than Wisconsin’s Kohl Center.After his team played in the acclaimed arena Saturday night, Ohio State men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik had no doubt of its place within the game.“This is the best atmosphere, to me, in college hockey,” Rohlik said in an interview with U.S. College Hockey Online. “The student section doesn’t compare anywhere else.”That’s what makes the Buckeyes’ 3-1 win over the Badgers Saturday night so impressive. Faced with that atmosphere and a four-game winless streak, OSU (12-9-1, 2-5-1-0) managed to hand No. 9 Wisconsin (14-7-1, 5-3-0-0) only its second home loss of the season.In a place where it pays to have experience, it turned out to be some of the younger Buckeyes who played a significant part in the win.First there was freshman goalie Christian Frey who, in only his fourth career start, made 36 saves to hold a team tied for fifth in the nation in scoring to just one goal.Though his performance has drawn a lot of praise, Frey said he couldn’t have done it alone.“The guys in front of me made it easy,” Frey said. “We really pulled together as a team and played a great team game, and it was a big win.”With Frey holding down the defensive end of things, it was freshman forward Nick Schilkey who had a big hand in leading the Buckeyes’ attack. Schilkey skated nearly the length of the ice to score the game’s tying goal, then helped set up junior forward Nick Oddo to score the winning marker.Schilkey said he aims to be as consistent as possible while also helping out in the goal-scoring department whenever he can.“I try to play well defensively and make sure I’m not being a liability out there,” Schilkey said. “When I get a weekend like this past one, it’s nice to see things pay off.”Frey, who was added to the roster in December, said he experienced the togetherness of this OSU team from day one.“All the guys are unbelievable,” Frey said. “I think it’s been an awesome experience for me and I’m really glad I came here.”With freshmen like Frey and Schilkey combining with seasoned upperclassmen, OSU seems to have found a winning formula.Maybe that’s one of the reasons Rohlik had a smile on his face after Saturday’s game. It seemed as if he realized a performance like that — one where every player stood up to the challenge — could really shape the Buckeyes’ season.“I’m proud of the guys that stepped up in the lineup tonight,” Rohlik said in the interview with U.S. College Hockey Online. “I think the NFL says it now, ‘It’s the next man standing.’ That’s kind of been our attitude from goalies, to (defensemen), to forwards, whoever.”Next up the Buckeyes are scheduled to host a weekend series against Penn State (4-15-1, 0-6-0) Friday at 7:05 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m.

OSU lost, 60-59, at First Niagara Center March 20.Credit: Ritika Shah / Asst. photo editorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team has bolstered its strength of schedule for the upcoming season with the addition of a former national champion.OSU spokesman Dan Wallenberg confirmed Thursday the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Louisville Cardinals Dec. 2 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky.The matchup is one of 14 games set to be played as a part of the 16th annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The previous two challenges were split by the two conferences.The Cardinals, which won the 2013 NCAA national championship, finished the 2013-14 season 31-6 and 15-3, including a win over the eventual national champion Connecticut in the inaugural American Athletic Conference championship game. Louisville fell to rival Kentucky in the Sweet 16, 74-69.The Buckeyes’ season ended when OSU lost to the Dayton Flyers in the second round of the NCAA tournament, 60-59.OSU is set to enter the 2014-15 season without three of its starters from last season as junior forward LaQuinton Ross declared for the NBA Draft and senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. are set to graduate. Sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle also left the program to pursue a professional career in Italy.The Buckeyes are set to welcome a top five recruiting class to Columbus, according to ESPN, as well as bringing in transfer forwards Anthony Lee, a former redshirt-junior from Temple, and Trevor Thompson, a former freshman from Virginia Tech. Lee will be eligible to play immediately for coach Thad Matta, while Thompson is expected to sit out the 2014-15 season per NCAA transfer regulations.
Redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) tries to shake off a tackler during a game against Northern Illinois on Sept. 19. OSU won 20-13.Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorComplacency.It’s a word to be scared of and to not be associated with.The bad news for Ohio State football: The word complacency describes the team’s play really well thus far in the season.After topping Northern Illinois 20-13 at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, the Buckeyes are 3-0. Though a win’s a win, the way this team won its first three games of the season isn’t championship football.“We are not the No. 1 team in the country. … We definitely have the potential to be, but not right now,” junior running back Ezekiel Elliott said.Elliott is right. This team should not be the No. 1 team in the country. The motivation isn’t there. The panic should start.The toughest opponent for coach Urban Meyer’s team is themselves. This is normal among championship teams. The hardest hurdle the year after a successful run is to not feel entitlement. This is poisonous in a locker room. And junior defensive end Joey Bosa’s tweet post-NIU might say it all.Hey everyone we were 2-1 this time last year…. Relax.. This trains about to get rolling— Joey Bosa (@jbbigbear) September 19, 2015OSU does have the talent to potentially repeat as College Football Playoff National Champions once again this season. To do this, however, the offense needs to sync better.After uncertainty of who should be under center coming into the season against Virginia Tech, redshirt junior Cardale Jones got the start in each of the first three games of the season.All due respect to Jones, as talented as he is, Meyer likely handed him the starting position because he believes the position belongs to him. After all, he won the championship, though redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett appears to be the better quarterback with more experience.Come Saturday against NIU, the inexperience showed. He was benched after two early interceptions, giving way for Barrett to take most of the second quarter and all of the second half.“We felt like he gave us the best chance to move the ball down the field,” Meyer said of Barrett.But when asked about the quarterback position, Meyer was unsure.“I don’t know that right now,” he said. I haven’t had time to think about it.”The quarterback position needs to be solidified before OSU football can return to the level of performance it’s accustomed to.Meyer deciding on a starting quarterback to lead the team, and sticking with him, will give the players assurance. Having a familiar leader snap the ball consistently is key to minimize confusion and to rally a team. One voice is more transparent than multiple coming from all sides.Regardless of who Meyer decides to have at the helm of the quarterback position, both Jones and Barrett are not playing up to par.Jones has completed only 26 passes out of 46 for 334 yards with three interceptions in three games, and Barrett has completed 20 of 46 for 120 yards with one interception.This has to be frustrating for Meyer. He’s known for his offense stemming from strong quarterback play from his time in Utah with Alex Smith and in Florida with Tim Tebow.“I’m not OK with five turnovers and lacking execution and not being able to control the line of scrimmage,” Meyer said. “That’s a recipe for failure.”The good news for this team is its defensive secondary, which has caused five interceptions and recovered two fumbles. And it has only allowed 357 yards passing through three games, an average of 119 yards per game.Redshirt sophomore linebacker Darron Lee acknowledged the team’s defensive play this season on Saturday.“When the offense needs a minute to find their rhythm we know we have to go out there and do our job,” Lee said.The Buckeyes had doubters coming into the season, including Arkansas coach Bret Bielema who made what some call a “bold statement” a week ago about OSU having an easy schedule, and thus not earning its standing and prestige.The teams on OSU’s schedule receiving votes in the Associated Press poll are Virginia Tech, which the Buckeyes beat 42-24 and has two votes in the poll, and No. 4 Michigan State, which is scheduled to meet OSU in Week 12.Here’s the thing: If the Buckeyes are struggling this badly with non-conference games, Big Ten play will hurt even more.So once again, someone please hit the panic button.
New Swansea City signing Barrie McKay is looking to rebuild his career after joining the club from Nottingham Forest.The former Rangers winger is hoping to recreate his goal scoring form at the Ibrox Stadium with his new club Swansea as they prepare for life in the Sky Bet Championship.McKay has signed a three-year deal with the Swans after joining the club from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.The winger found the back of the net 17 times for Rangers but struggled to replicate the same form at Forest scoring just five times in 28 appearances.“Being at Rangers was a good feeling for me the football we played at the club was very good as we got the club back into the Scottish Premiership,” he said according to BBC.Report: Sanches is on a collision course with Bayern chief George Patchias – August 21, 2019 Renato Sanches is apparently on a collision course with Bayern Munich chief after recent comments.According to beIN sports network, Renato Sanches has publicly criticised…McKay featured more than 100 times for the Glasgow based club and the highlight of his Rangers’ career came when he scored against great rivals Celtic in the Scottish cup semi-final.“I was a young lad when I got into the club’s first team. I was just 17 but I featured in a number of games for the club,” he said.“The goal I scored against Celtic was definitely one of my best and I hope to score a few more like that.”“I will try to play as many games as I can and provide as many goals as I can as well for this club.”McKay who has been capped once by Scotland could make his Swansea debut when the club face Sheffield United in the Sky bet Championship opener.

Mentoring Males group members tour Hampton University campus.Director Cameron Miles and the guys in his “Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood” group recently visited Hampton University, ate lunch in the cafeteria, and toured the entire campus. The group stayed at the Hampton Inn and ate at local restaurants. They visited the Norfolk Naval Shipyard and the Virginia Air and Space museum. Miles calls the 8 to18-year-olds kings, so they’ll know their true worth, and 40 of them, the majority of whom had never been out of Baltimore, had a wonderful trip. Miles said these trips build character, teach leadership, help the kings to see that by working hard, college and beyond are reachable.Each summer they take a cultural enrichment trip; past ones have included Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Morehouse, Howard, and Delaware State universities.His goal is that none of the kings end up in the penal system or the cemetery. Each king that goes to college gets a $500 donation from the program.
All the dance enthuisiasts can head over to experience some great ballet performances as Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra is up with their 11th Festival of Ballets that kick started on 9 May. The first day of the festival featured the dance performance Meera. The performance brought up the glory lies in her ability to articulate through her poetry the turbulence that transpired in her life. Meera’s life seems to be an allegory for most women, that centuries later, her name lives on. Wherever she went, through the effervescence of her poetry, she spread the message of liberation and urged an inner awakening. The performance was choreographed by Shashidharan Nair and the music was given by Shubha Mudgal under the production and direction by Shobha Deepak Singh. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The second day of the festival (10 May) will feature the performance Shree Durga. The performance is choreographed by Shashidharan Nair and the vocal composition is by Shanti Sharma. The performance highlights that Durga and Kali are not vehicles of a bygone era but remain pertinent today. One reads daily about the atrocities on women. When the Gods give boons they themselves become victims of these boons and it is then that they invoke Shree Shakti; feminine power, to vanquish demons in society. Female power conquers over mindless demons of society. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOn the third day (15 May), the festival will present Karna. It is choreographed by Late Guru Krishna Chandra Naik and Shashidharan Nair. The music is given by Barun Gupta. Towards no other persona of the epic of Mahabharata do circumstances remain consistently so hostile. Karna’s life and times are frozen in their entirety and his fortunes into a perpetual predicament. This ballet is dedicated to all the Karnas natural and unnatural, who are denied the rightful place in the social milieu, seen in its correct perspective. Karna’s life has been so unfair that it immediately elicits sympathy. His life in the epic is resplendent with magnificent misadventures and acts of valour. The closing day of the festival (17 May) will be featuring Kumar Sambhava. The music is been given by Barun Gupta and the scripting is done by Neelabh. The act is directed by Shobha Deepak Singh. It is an endearing story of the demon Tarak, who enjoyed sacred protection in the form of a boon of invincibility from Lord Brahma, of which he took blatant advantage and wreaked havoc on earth. In desperation, mankind appealed to Brahma and the gods to save them from Tarak’s oppression and Lord Brahma said that Tarak could only be killed by the son of Lord Shiva and Parvati, with the intervention of Kamdeva, the god of love. Shiva and Parvati married. After a peaceful existence in the mountains, Kartikeya, their eldest son who was incubated in six wombs of celestial virgins, was born to allow the world to rejoice. Kartikeya was taught by Shiva. At the end of his training Shiva asked his son to lead the army into battle and rid the world of Tarak. After a ferocious battle, Kartikeya mustered all his powers and released a deadly bolt against Tarak, that instantly saw him crash to the ground, dead. And so, the darkness lifted from the heavens and earth and the gods and humans rejoiced. Kamdeva’s death and his wife Rati’s lamentation offer the poignant and sad reality of a tale, where good and evil coexist.Where: Kamani Auditorium, 1 Copernicus MargWhen: 10, 15, 17 May Timing: 7-8.30 pm
Providing help to friends, acquaintances, and even strangers can reduce the effects of daily stress on our emotions and our mental health, says a study.“Our research shows that when we help others, we can also help ourselves,” explained study author Emily Ansell of the Yale University School of Medicine in the US. “Stressful days usually lead us to have a worse mood and poorer mental health, but our findings suggest that if we do small things for others, such as holding a door open for someone, we won’t feel as poorly on stressful days,” Ansell noted.

A total of 77 adults, ranging from 18 to 44 years old, participated in the 14-day study.The participants received an automated phone reminder every night that prompted them to complete their daily assessment. They were asked to report any stressful life events they experienced that day across several domains such as interpersonal, work/education, home, finance, health/accident, and the total number of events comprised the measure of daily stress. The results indicated that helping others boosted participants’ daily well-being.

And there was only a slight increase in negative emotion from stress if the participant engaged in more prosocial behaviours,” Ansell pointed out.The study was published in the journal Clinical Psychological Science.
