Johnson Service Group shares surge as work wear business performs well

first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp laundry firm Johnson Service Group yesterday reported a 17 per cent increase in first half pre-tax profit yesterday benefiting from a strong performance from its work wear rental business.The company made an adjusted pre-tax profit of £6.2m in the six months to 30 June, up from £5.3m in the same period last year.“I am pleased with the performance of the group in the first half of the year and believe we are well placed for a successful second half,” executive chairman John Talbot said yesterday.Johnson Service said trading at its work wear rental business had been very strong, with operating profit rising by 13 per cent to £7.6m. The performance benefited from cost reduction programmes introduced in mid-2009 and “healthy” levels of profitability at Stalbridge Linen Services which supplies hotels, restaurants and caterers to events such as the Cheltenham horseracing festival. The group’s dry cleaning operations have also been restructured. The shares closed at up 18 per cent at 19p last night, valuing it at about £41m.

This house aims to overlook the various views which can be seen from the highest point of the land. Starting from a set of separate volumes and following the adaptation of the traditional architecture to the terrain, the resulting area between the four volumes was designed as a living space, the walls of which are a continuation of the exterior façades and where only glass separates the exterior from the interior space of the home.

The project consists of creating affordable housing units in an existing building where a local school for the hamlet of the Municipality of Essômes sur Marne is located and transforming the entrance to make access suitable for the needs of the disabled persons.Save this picture!© Marcin A. PawlowskiThe original distribution of the building has been entirely reorganised and reconceptualised partly because the only existing apartment to be used originally by a teacher had not been occupied for many years. The proposal makes use of the entire volume of the building, both the occupied and unoccupied parts. The new entrance hall with a core staircase has been created on the place of the previous technical rooms. This new element is emphasised inside as well as from the outside by meticulously finished raw materials, which gives the feeling of a contemporary interlude in the middle of an old, longish frontage. The window frames were made of the same material and were added around the existing windows of the school in order to emphasise the coexistence of the new program with the preserved activity of the school.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!First FloorThis new distribution is recognisable on the main elevation aligned with the adjacent road. It stands out distinctly with its Corten steel cladding with an integrated bay window. Inside, the reflections of the natural surroundings coming through the bay window create a pleasant and calm atmosphere in the common parts of the building.Save this picture!© Marcin A. PawlowskiIn order to add uniformity to the project, all the timber window frames and shutters, as well as all the elements of the iron work such as a balustrade and hand railings are painted in the same colour. At the same time, the composition of the panels of Corten steel landmarks, the new main entrance and the openings give a contemporary feel to the project, and preserves the simplicity and authenticity of the original building. Save this picture!© Marcin A.

Indian newspaper accused of “fake news” about lockdown’s impact on poor

first_imgNews IndiaAsia – Pacific Media independenceProtecting sources Covid19WhistleblowersJudicial harassment News RSF_en Help by sharing this information to go further Vijay Vineet, a news editor for the Hindi-language newspaper Jansandesh Times, decided to a do a story on the effects of the lockdown the next day by visiting a village of 17 families who are members of the Musahar community, an ethnic minority usually regarded as “Dalit” (Untouchable).There he discovered children eating grass that is usually given to cattle because, as a result of the lockdown, their parents are unable to work as day labourers and earn the money with which to feed their families.The day after Vineet’s editor, Subhash Rai, ran the story together with a photo of the children, Varanasi district magistrate Kaushal Raj Sharma issued a notice accusing them spreading “fake news” at a “sensitive time” and, describing the article as a “dangerous attempt” to discredit his administration, threatened to sue them if they did not publish a correction.Fear of prosecutionVineet, who has worked as a journalist for 35 years, told RSF he would not make any changes to his article even if it led to a lawsuit. “I’ve been covering the problems of poverty and famine all my life,” he said. “This is the first time that a government has issued me with a notice in connection with my work.”“It is unacceptable that journalists are harassed for having the courage to shine a light on the lockdown’s effects on the most disadvantaged sectors,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We calls on the Varanasi district authorities to immediately withdraw these arbitrary accusations against Vijay Vineet and Subhash Rai. Journalists must always be free to do work, and even more so at a ‘sensitive time’.”Indian journalists are often prosecuted for covering poverty-related stories. As RSF reported at the time, Pawan Jaiswal, another reporter for the Jansandesh Times, was accused of “conspiracy to defame” the Uttar Pradesh government last year because he posted a video of children at a school being fed nothing but roti (grilled flatbread) with salt for lunch.India is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Photo: Kate LainThe Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens named Los Angeles arts organization Clockshop as its partner for the fourth year of The Huntington’s /five initiative. Artists invited to participate in this year’s project are Nina Katchadourian, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, and Rosten Woo, along with writer Dana Johnson and Poet Laureate for the City of Los Angeles Robin Coste Lewis. Each participant will create new work based on research in The Huntington’s collections that will be presented in public programs and an exhibition scheduled to be on view Nov. 10, 2019–Feb. 25, 2020.A part of The Huntington’s Centennial Celebration, which runs from September 2019 to September 2020, the 2019 /five project uses Thomas More’s satirical work Utopia (1516) as a thematic point of departure, focusing on perfection, utopia, and the utopian ambitions of railroad and real estate visionary Henry E. Huntington, the institution’s founder.“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Clockshop on this year’s /five initiative,” said Jennifer A. Watts, curator of photography and visual culture at The Huntington. “They’ve helped select a stellar interdisciplinary cohort of artists, as well as a compelling theme that holds particular resonance for the institution’s hundredth year. In a sense, The Huntington stands as one man’s utopian dream. Henry Huntington spent millions of dollars over decades collecting rare books, fine art, and botanical specimens from all over the world. These artists are sure to bring new meanings to bear on The Huntington and its rich collections.”Founded by artist and filmmaker Julia Meltzer in 2004, Clockshop commissions work by artists and writers and curates public programs about social and political issues. It partnered with The Huntington in 2016 on “Radio Imagination,” a project exploring the work of the late science fiction writer Octavia E. Butler, whose papers The Huntington holds.“The Huntington’s collections provide endless opportunities for artists, writers, and the full range of creative voices,” said Meltzer. “They include rare and wonderful treasures. And we are inviting these artists to plumb the treasure chest to consider questions around the idea of utopia and how we might find or build these spaces here and now.”More information about the fall /five exhibition and public programs will be announced later in the year.About the ArtistsDana Johnson: Writer and associate professor of English, University of Southern California. Johnson’s The Story of Biddy Mason (2016) retraces the parallel but contrasting Los Angeles of Henry Huntington and African-American entrepreneur Biddy Mason. Her work demonstrates a long-standing interest in how class, good fortune, and race influence ideas about, and proximity to, utopia.Nina Katchadourian: Interdisciplinary artist. Katchadourian’s work, which includes video, performance, sound, sculpture, photography, and public projects, often explores the re-framing or reorganizing of collections. She intends to focus on the theme of monsters in maps and rare books within The Huntington’s archive.Robin Coste Lewis: Poet Laureate for the City of Los Angeles; National Book Award winner. Coste Lewis created new work for Clockshop’s “Radio Imagination project” (2016), which drew upon the papers of Octavia E. Butler at The Huntington. For the 2019 iteration of the /five initiative, she is interested in investigating the writings and prints of American naturalist John James Audubon (1785-1851), a fabled perfectionist.Beatriz Santiago Muñoz: Interdisciplinary artist. Muñoz’s work in film, video, and performance focuses on ideas of speculative futures and utopias and is often produced in her homeland of Puerto Rico. Muñoz will work with the botanical collections, specifically looking at the process of cryopreservation of plants within the collections.Rosten Woo: Artist, designer, writer, and educator. Woo specializes in interpretive work that helps people reorient themselves to place. He will be working with the archive of scholar Robert V. Hine (1921-2015), who conducted oral histories in several of California’s utopian communities.About /fiveThe Huntington’s /five initiative is pairing the institution with five different cultural organizations over five years, inviting contemporary artists to respond to a theme drawn from The Huntington’s deep and diverse library, art, and botanical collections. The results are intended to create engaging, thoughtful, provocative, and inspiring experiences for Huntington audiences.In its first year (2016), the institution collaborated with NASA/JPL to present an installation of the outdoor sound sculpture “Orbit Pavilion” (on view through Sept. 2, 2019), giving a nod to The Huntington’s collections in the history of aerospace, astronomy, and earth science. In the second year of the initiative, The Huntington teamed up with the Women’s Center for Creative Work in Los Angeles to explore the theme of collecting and collections, culminating in the exhibition, Collection/s: WCCW/five at The Huntington (Nov. 18, 2017–Feb. 12, 2018). In 2018, a partnership with the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College resulted in the exhibition “Rituals of Labor and Engagement: Carolina Caycedo and Mario Ybarra Jr.” (on view through Feb. 25, 2019).About The HuntingtonThe Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a collections-based research and educational institution serving scholars and the general public. More information about The Huntington can be found online at huntington.orgVisitor InformationThe Huntington is located at 1151 Oxford Rd., San Marino, 12 miles from downtown Los Angeles. It is open to the public Wednesday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Tuesdays. For more information contact (626) 405-2100 or huntington.org.

The 36-year-old arrived in Limerick in March 2015 and had, for a time, been living in a makeshift camp along the banks of the River Shannon.In the last three years, Vedran and his faithful companion have been homeless in France, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Italy and Bosnia and Herzegovina.Since arriving in Limerick, he claims that none of Limerick’s homeless shelters would accommodate his pet, which he refers to as a therapy dog to help him deal with his mental health issues. He told the Limerick Post that he has been attacked and had his tent burnt down during his time in the city, which lead to a breakdown and a period in hospital.“I was doing my best to keep myself healthy, mentally and physically. I feel I have been completely left behind by some public services, especially when I was dealing with the council’s homeless team,” Vedran said.“I am now emotionally exhausted and probably in need of another recovery period in hospital. I only managed to get a little bit of work since March, mostly because nobody would employ me with my current situation. I have had to borrow money from family and friends and I have been living for at least six months with less than €5 a day in my pocket.”Earlier this year, Vedran had his passport and other documents and valuables including a laptop stolen while travelling by train from Galway to Dublin. He now feels desperate, is in need of support, and does not know where to turn.“I am grateful for all the help I have received from people in Limerick but what I really need is to be treated fairly by public services such as the social welfare office,” he concluded.
