Toy dog day at Crufts - but it's not fur everyone

Ticket sales are up, stalls are booming, but the Kennel Club’s show is never far from controversy Friday at Crufts is toy dog day, which for the uninitiated means a lot of fur. Pomeranians, chihuahuas, pekingese and Chinese crested may not be everyone’s juicy bone, but in a jam-packed NEC in Birmingham, it was clear they were not short of fans.“I can’t believe how busy it is!” said Caroline Kisko, who as secretary of the Kennel Club has been top dog at the world’s biggest canine show for almost 20 years. Advance ticket sales are well up on last year, she said, and entry numbers for Thursday, the first day of this year’s show, were also higher than anticipated.

Former economic council director derides Trump's debt tweet

A former director of the U.S. National Economic Council sent a memo to lawmakers on Saturday advising them to not echo President Donald Trump's tweet that suggests the national debt is down during his first month.Keith Hennessey, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, wrote in his memo to Congress that Trump was technically correct that the national debt decreased by $19.6 billion from Jan. 20 to Feb. 23. Hennessey, however, added that if Trump had "ended his timeframe one day earlier this tweet would have been invalid and debt would have increased" by $1 billion in “the first month.” He said this is why "analysts look at debt on an annual basis."Hennessey said it looked as if Trump got his numbers from Herman Cain, who appeared on "Fox & Friends Weekend" shortly before Trump's tweet."Because of his unique communications advantages, President Trump may be able to get away with making an argument with such a weak foundation," Hennessey wrote. "You cannot, and you should not place yourself in the position of having to address the intellectual weaknesses described above. "Hennessey also noted that former President Barack Obama signed a stimulus package the first month during his presidency and that there was a big difference in the health of the economy in 2009 to 2017.The former NEC director also wrote that it was "more concerning" that the tweet shows Trump continues to rely on TV rather than his advisers. "Until his staff figure out a way to ensure he doesn’t make such easily rebutted claims, you should not echo the president’s economic arguments or claims without first verifying both their accuracy and substantive merit," Hennessey wrote. "This unfortunate situation will persist as long as President Trump continues to take his numbers and policy arguments from TV pundits rather than from Mr. Cohn, Director Mulvaney, and Secretary Mnuchin."On Saturday morning, Trump tweeted: "The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo."

05.02.2017 18:09 : Британская рок-группа Black Sabbath отыграла свой последний концерт

Он состоялся в родном городе музыкантов Бирмингеме. Концерт на стадионе NEC Arena продолжался два часа. Как передает ВВС, всего группа сыграла 15 песен, закончив выступление своим первым хитом со своего первого хита — Paranoid. В конце выступления, когда на сцену полетели конфетти и воздушные шары, лидер Black Sabbath Оззи Осборн поблагодарил фанатов, которые поддерживают группу на протяжении почти полувека. «Спасибо, отличный вечер, большое спасибо», — сказал музыкант, покидая сцену. Разговаривая с ВВС перед шоу, он отметил, что испытывает настоящий ураган чувств. «Я помню, как мы играли в одном из пабов Бирмингема и я думал, что будет здорово в ближайшие пару лет пить пиво и играть на гитаре. Но это стало началом самого невероятного приключения, какое только можно было вообразить». Кстати, последнюю песню концерта могли в прямом эфире увидеть фанаты в любой точке планеты – ее трансляция шла через официальную страничку коллектива на Facebook. Black Sabbath — одна из самых известных хеви-металл групп в истории музыки. Она оказала значительное влияние на развитие рока и  прежде всего тяжелого рока. На протяжении своего существования состав группы неоднократно менялся, в частности, четыре раза уходил лидер Оззи Осборн, а сама группа дважды уже объявляла о своем распаде. Заключительный тур Black Sabbath начался более года назад концертом в Москве. Оззи Осборн поклялся, что это турне станет настоящим концом группы.

Ситуация на фондовых площадках Азиатско-Тихоокеанского региона:

Основные фондовые индексы Азиатско-Тихоокеанского региона торгуются в красной зоне, после того, как президент Дональд Трамп представил иммиграционные бордюры, которые вызвали критику у себя дома и за рубежом, добавив опасений, что его политика окажется дестабилизирующей для остального мира. Указ Трампа об ограничении въезда из семи преимущественно мусульманских стран спровоцировал юридические претензии, критику в конгрессе и массовые протесты. Котировки на крупнейшей в Азии Токийской фондовой бирже снижаются вслед за фондовыми индексами США, где вчера Dow Jones опустился более чем на 150 пунктов, и это был наихудший день для индекса со времен президентских выборов в США. Также на динамику торгов влияет курс иены, который сегодня продолжил расти, после того как Банк Японии по окончанию двухдневного заседания оставил денежно-кредитную политику без изменений. Акции Sony Corp снизились на -2%, после того, как компания заявила об убытках в четвертом квартале 2016 года Рыночная стоимость NEC Corp снизилась на -15,2% после того, как производитель коммуникационного оборудования снизила прогноз прибыли за год, который закончиться 31 марта. Mazda Motor Corp уменьшила капитализацию на -3,9% после того, как Nikkei сообщила, что операционная прибыль автопроизводителя также не дотягивает до ожидаемых цифр.

Labour NEC asked to inquire into Newham mayoral 'trigger ballot'

Nearly 50 party members in the east London borough want their national ruling body to examine claims that the process for reselecting Sir Robin Wales was flawedLabour Party members in Newham unhappy with the “affirmative nomination” process that saw the borough’s directly-elected mayor Sir Robin Wales declared the narrow winner of a “trigger ballot” to decide whether he should automatically go forward as their party’s mayoral candidate next year have sent a 13-page letter to Labour’s national executive committee (NEC) asking it to establish a “full inquiry” into what it claims were “many failures of process/propriety and procedural irregularities” that took place on the way to the outcome and to halt the confirmation of Sir Robin as 2018 candidate until such an inquiry is complete. Signed by 47 members of the east London borough’s two constituency Labour parties (CLPs), including ten Newham councillors, the letter sets out at length its case that “a number of [individual] ballots should be declared void or held in abeyance” and that the conduct of the process, which ran from 25 October to 4 December 2016, “made a material difference to the result”, tipping it in favour of Sir Robin by 20 votes to 17.

Alienating Labour’s grassroots will keep Corbyn out of power | Michael Chessum

Momentum’s new constitution disempowers the activists it needs for the inspiration, ideas and hard graft that could change the political landscapeI don’t even like cupcakes that much – and I despise the practice, which is sadly becoming more widespread, of playing out the left’s internal squabbles on the pages of newspapers. But the picture painted by leaked emails from Momentum’s steering committee last week, in which I urged my colleagues to “eat cupcakes and think about butterflies” in a frustrated plea to them to step back from the brink of a split, is worthy of elaboration. The coup currently under way in Momentum tells us something bigger about the need for the left to rethink its strategy.Momentum’s leadership has imposed a constitution on the organisation, abolishing the democratic structures that have been developing over the past year and cancelling its founding conference, where members were due to debate its future. The stated goal of the new constitution is to ensure that Momentum does not replicate the Labour party, clearing the way for it to affiliate as a socialist society. Ironically, under the new rules Momentum will be governed by a national coordinating group with representatives from members, local government, MPs and other stakeholders – a kind of shadow Labour party NEC, very similar to the strategy board of the Blairite faction Progress.

Обзор японских компаний

За последние 4 года много касался американских, европейских и российских компаний, но почти никогда не затрагивал азиатские. Там, безусловно, своя специфика. Формат функционирования и структура рынка отличаются от европейского формата. Тем не менее, в рамках единого шаблона сравнения будет полезным посмотреть за результатами японских компаний.Помогло ли японским компаниям рекордное ( с 1995-1998) ослабление иены? Да, помогло. Вообще по большинству опросов топ менеджеров японских компаний относительно главного фактора, который приводит к улучшению показателей бизнеса, большинство называют именно курс иены.Японские компании имеют рекордный уровень глобализации.Например,Корпорация Toyota 66% выручки генерирует на внешних рынках;Honda аж 81% (!) за пределами Японии,Nissan не меньше 78%;Sony примерно 70%;Panasonic, по крайней мере, половину;Sharp около 60%Toyota имеет производственные мощности в США, там же и продает авто. Понятно, что выручка в США, полученная в долларах и конвертированная в ослабшей иене, покажет рост. Но и японские экспортные возможности повышаются, т.к. при неизменных внутренних ценах покупательская способность клиентов возрастает в условиях падающей иены.В этом отношении сыграли неплохо.Результаты компаний это подтверждаютНа графике предельная возможная выборка компаний из нефин.сектора. Выборка примерно в 5 раз превосходит индекс Nikkei 225. Т.е. охвачены все крупные публичные компании, которые предоставляли отчеты с начала 2004.Выручка уже выше 2007, прибыль достигает максимумов, рентабельность компаний стабилизируется вблизи докризисных уровней.По секторам:Все сектора показали улучшение относительно 2011-2012 годовПродолжение (кстати, добавил раздел капитальных расходов)Фин.коэффициентыДвукратный рост капитализации японских компаний отчасти демпфируется ростом прибыли и выручки.Возможно, многие спросят, куда включены такие известные компании, как Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, Nikon, Nintendo, Pioneer, Casio, JVC, SEGA, Konami? Отвечаю – в категорию Consumer Goods (производство товаров потребительского назначения). Все автомобильные компании туда же.Хотя, что касается компаний из сегмента домашней и бытовой техники (Sony, Panasonic и компания), то не сказать, что результаты их превосходны. Выручка стагнирует, а прибыль около нуля. Хотя, удалось выйти из рекордных убытков.Если брать технологический сектор, то крупнейшие представители в нем – Fujitsu, Canon, NEC, Fujifilm, Ricoh, NTT, SeikoСтруктура представленных компаний (в среднем за последние 4 года)ПрибыльВыручкаРентабельность капиталаЧистая маржаТакие дела ))Данные по Китаю, России, Бразилии, Индии, Турции и прочим не скоро.
