The stock looks undervalued relative to its European peers and we expect this valuation gap to close quickly,” Peel Hunt said in a note to clients in which it upgraded its rating to “buy”.ITV said this week that it planned to restore its dividend in July after a recovery in advertising markets and improved programming helped double 2010 earnings and deliver a strong start to the new year.Shares in the broadcaster have gained nearly 33 per cent already in 2011 after rising more than 30 per cent in both 2009 and 2010.Companies outside the FTSE 100 that grow to rank among the 90 largest by market capitalisation are automatically promoted, while the FTSE 100 firms with the lowest value or that fall to 111th spot or below drop into the FTSE Midcap 250 index.Shares in John Wood Group gained sharply last month after the energy services group agreed to sell its well support division to General Electric for $2.8bn (£1.72bn).Index compiler FTSE will formally announce the changes to the FTSE UK index series after the market close next Wednesday based on the closing prices on Tuesday, March 8 but the changes have to be confirmed by a FTSE committee on Wednesday.The index changes will become effective on March 21. center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Friday 4 March 2011 7:49 am alison.lock Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Respetuosamente hay que decir que esa es una mala teología. El Dios de los cristianos es un dios de amor y no inflige dolor o sufrimiento a sus hijos.

NATO’s Jens Stoltenberg tells nuclear lies

first_img“Russian missiles pose a danger,” said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, sounding the alarm in a Nov. 23 interview with Maurizio Caprara [Italian daily newspaper] of Corriere della Sera. Published just three days before an “incident” in the Azov Sea, the interview threw gasoline on already flaming tensions with Russia. “There are no new missiles in Europe. But Russian missiles, yes,” claimed Stoltenberg — while hiding two facts.First of all, starting in March 2020, the United States will begin to deploy the first precision-guided nuclear bomb in its arsenal, the B61-12, in Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland (where B-61 nuclear bombs are already deployed) and probably in other European countries. The new bomb, mainly targeting Russia, has the ability to penetrate and explode underground, so it can destroy command center bunkers in a first strike. One can imagine how the United States would react if Russia deployed nuclear bombs in Mexico, close to U.S. territory. Italy and the other countries, in violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, make bases, pilots and planes available to the U.S. for the deployment of nuclear weapons, thus exposing Europe to greater risk, as it is on the first line of the growing U.S. confrontation with Russia.Secondly, a new U.S. missile system was installed in Romania in 2016, and a similar one is being installed in Poland. The same missile system is installed on four warships stationed by the U.S. Navy at the Spanish base of Rota. These ships cross the Black Sea and Baltic Sea near Russian territory. Both the ground installations and the ships are equipped with Lockheed Martin Mk 41 vertical launchers, which — the manufacturer specifies — can launch “missiles for all missions: both SM-3 for defense against ballistic missiles and long-range Tomahawk missiles for attacking ground targets.” The latter can also be armed with a nuclear warhead.  Since Moscow cannot verify which missiles actually exist in launchers approaching Russian territory, it must assume that they include nuclear attack missiles. This violates the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which prohibits the installation of ground-based short-range and intermediate-range missiles. In 2014, the Barack Obama administration accused Russia, without bringing any evidence, of having tested a cruise missile (SSC-8) of the category prohibited by the treaty, announcing that “the United States is considering the deployment of ground-based missiles in Europe” — that means the U.S. would abandon the INF Treaty. The plan, supported by NATO’s European allies, was confirmed by the Donald Trump administration. In the current 2018 fiscal year, Congress has authorized the funds for a research and development program to introduce a cruise missile launched from a mobile platform on a highway. Nuclear missiles such as the “Euromissiles” deployed by the U.S. in Europe in the 1980s, and eliminated by the INF Treaty, were able to reach Russia. Similar nuclear missiles deployed in Russia can reach Europe, but not the United States. Stoltenberg himself, referring to the SSC-8 that Russia is supposed to have deployed on its territory, states that they are “able to reach much of Europe, but not the United States.” That’s how the United States “defends” Europe. Finally, what is really grotesque is Stoltenberg’s statement that, attributing to Russia “the very dangerous idea of limited nuclear conflicts,” warns, “All atomic weapons are risky, but those that can lower the threshold for their use are particularly risky.”  This is exactly the warning given by U.S. military experts and scientists about their B61-12s, which are about to be deployed in Europe: “Less powerful and more precise nuclear weapons increase the temptation to use them, even to use them first instead of in retaliation.” Why doesn’t Maurizio Caprara interview these scientists?Dinucci is an anti-militarist expert whose article originally ran in the Italian newspaper Il Manifesto of Nov. 27.

Turkey: media purge intensifies in coup attempt’s wake

first_img Help by sharing this information It is based on Law No. 2935 of 1983, of which article 11 (e) says: “The printing and distribution of certain newspapers, magazines, brochures, books, leaflets and other printed matter may be prohibited. Their introduction into the region under a state of emergency may be banned if they come from outside, and their importation may be subject to authorization by the authorities. If banned, these publication may be confiscated.” See RSF’s previous releases on the abortive coup d’état and its consequences: For example, Turgay Güler, the editor of the pro-government daily Güneş, attacked the T24 news site on Twitter on 18 July. First he tweeted: “The T24 terror site continues to wage its coup d’état. How is this possible?” And then: “How is it that T24, which served as a base for the coup d’état, is still operating?” April 28, 2021 Find out more At the National Security Council’s proposal, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım’s government decreed a three-month OHAL, or state of emergency, on 20 July. Journalists arrested, issues seized Two journalists with the conservative daily Meydan, managing editor Levent Kenez and editor Gülizar Baki, were arrested during a raid on its headquarters in Istanbul on 20 July and were released the next day after being charged with running a newspaper “resembling a press mouthpiece of the FETÖ organization.” TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisoned News Receive email alerts TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisoned Purge and calls for a purge Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Follow the news on Turkey Turkey: media purge after abortive coup? (18 July 2016)Abortive coup – Turkish journalists on the brink of the abyss (16 July 2016) “The wholesale and arbitrary nature of the attacks on the Turkish media in the past week seems to reflect a desire to exact revenge and bring them into line. It is time the authorities put a stop to this.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores the growing persecution of critical media in the week since the 15 July coup attempt in Turkey. With the government’s response seeming more and more like a witchhunt, journalists have been subjected to arrests, seizures of entire newspaper issues and a menacing state of emergency. “No one disputes the Turkish government’s legitimate right to defend constitutional order after this abortive coup but democracy, for which hundreds of civilians gave their lives, cannot be protected by trampling on fundamental freedoms,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. News State of emergency heavy with menace Many journalists, both Turkish and foreign, have been the targets of threatening messages, some of them containing death threats.center_img The police seized the newspaper’s entire 20 July issue, giving “the progress of the investigation” and “the possibility of anger being aroused in society” as their grounds for taking action. Meydan has now terminated all activity. Other pro-Gülen Movement media such as the magazine Nokta and Can Erzincan TV have done the same. to go further Even the state media have not escaped the purge. Osman Köse, the head of the media workers union Habersen, told RSF that at least sixof its members have been suspended in the course of an investigation aimed at unmasking alleged Gülen Movement members and sympathizers. In all, more that 300 state media employees are reportedly affected, above all at the national TV broadcaster TRT and the news agency Anatolia. News The Istanbul police also confiscated the latest issue of the satirical weekly Leman as it came off the presses. The cover showed Gülen in military uniform calling for the creation of an international commission of enquiry to establish who was responsible for the abortive coup. RSF_en Under the state of emergency that was introduced in 1983 and was not fully lifted until 2002, the authorities confiscated or prevented the distribution of more than 20 publications in southeastern regions with a mostly Kurdish population. Many journalists were arrested with complete impunity and many foreign journalists were deported. Organisation The state of emergency also suspends the right of individuals to refer any violation of their rights to Turkey’s constitutional court. And it suspends the right to challenge any measures taken by the authorities without reference to a court. Journalist and human rights defender Orhan Kemal Cengiz was arrested at Istanbul’s Atatürk airport on 21 July. A columnist for Özgür Düşünce, he was placed in detention while his journalist wife, Sibel Hürtaş, was held for a few hours and then released.

Six months after editor’s murder, authorities warned that incomplete trial will not be accepted

first_img Organisation Receive email alerts April 28, 2021 Find out more July 18, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Six months after editor’s murder, authorities warned that incomplete trial will not be accepted News Help by sharing this information TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders today voiced its support for the demands of the family, friends and colleagues of Hrant Dink, a newspaper editor of Armenian descent who was gunned down in Istanbul exactly six months ago on 19 January 2007.“We call on the authorities to pursue their investigation and to shed light on all aspects of this case,” the press freedom organisation said. “The trial of Dink’s alleged murderers that opened on 2 July in Istanbul and is due to have its next hearing on 1 October, is a crucial test for the Turkish judicial system. Its independence is at stake here.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We will not be satisfied with a trial in which only some of those responsible for Dink’s murder are in the dock. All those who played a role must be identified including, if necessary, those who work for the security services. It is essential that the judicial system should expose the various connections between military, police and other officials that may have been involved in this case.”Reporters Without Borders went to Istanbul for the opening of the trial and saw the size of the demonstration outside. “We are all witnesses and we want justice,” said one of the banners displayed by the many demonstrators gathered outside the courthouse.Born in 1954, Dink was the editor of the weekly Agos, Turkey’s leading Armenian newspaper. For years he had been urging his fellow citizens to face up to the issue of the Armenian genocide in 1915. Although the target of threats and accusations, he always refused to leave Turkey.He said in his last interview: “It is here that I want to pursue the fight, because it is not just my fight, it is the fight of all those who want Turkey to be democratised. If I give up and leave the country, it will be a shame for everyone. My ancestors lived in this country, it is here that I have my roots, and I have the right to die in the country where I was born.”The 18 defendants are all from Trabzon, a Black Sea city with a reputation for ultra-nationalist violence. The youngest defendant, Ogün Samast, 17, is the one who is alleged to have fired the shots that killed Dink. The two defendants who allegedly got him to do it, Erhan Tuncel and Yasin Hayal, face life imprisonment.
