McDonald's (MCD) отчитался лучше ожиданий аналитиков

Продажи в сопоставимых ресторанах McDonald's (MCD) в США в четвертом квартале упали меньше, чем ожидали аналитики, так как высокий спрос на "завтраки в течении целого дня" пользовались популярностью у клиентов сети ресторанов быстрого питания. Оператор крупнейшего в мире фаст-фуда опубликовал квартальный отчет сегодня перед открытие регулярной сессии. Продажи в сопоставимых ресторанах McDonald's в Соединенных Штатах в течение трех месяцев, закончившихся 31 декабря, снизились на 1,3%, в то время как аналитики в среднем ожидали падение на 1,4%, говорится в данных исследовательской компании Consensus Metrix. Сопоставимые международные продажи ресторанов McDonald's превзошли ожидания из-за высоких показателей в Великобритании, Китае, Японии и некоторых рынков Латинской Америке. Продажи в международных ресторанах, открытых не менее 13 месяцев назад, выросли на 2,7%, по сравнению со средней оценкой аналитиков в 2,6%. Совокупная выручка McDonald's упала десятый квартал подряд, в основном из-за продаж ресторанов франчайзи в рамках выполнения плана по реструктуризации, которые начались в середине 2015 года. Этот план, разработанный главным исполнительным директором Стивом Истербруком, также включает в себя введение меню завтраков в течение всего дня, запрет на использование антибиотиков у поставщиков курицы в США, а также усилия по более быстрому и дружелюбному обслуживанию. В связи с этим, прошедший год был переходным периодом для McDonald's. До сих пор реализация данного плана была относительно успешной, акции вернули около 7% по сравнению с аналогичным периодом прошлого года. В текущем году, McDonald `s рассчитывает еще больше укрепить свои позиции для долгосрочного устойчивого роста. Общий доход упал почти на 5%, до $6,03 млрд в последнем квартале, превысив среднюю оценку аналитиков в $5,99 млрд, в соответствии с данными Thomson Reuters. Чистая прибыль компании упала примерно на 1%, до $1,19 млрд, или $1,44 на акцию, по сравнению с аналогичным периодом прошлого года. На текущий момент акции McDonald's Corporation (MCD) котируются по $121,21 (-0,86%) Информационно-аналитический отдел TeleTradeИсточник: FxTeam

Readers’ recipe swap: Tofu | Dale Berning Sawa

Firm or silken, your recipes prove that proper tofu should be at the centre of a meal, not on the sidelines.It’s a shame, I feel, that for many people tofu is a flavourless meat substitute, to be overloaded with all the flavour it doesn’t naturally come with. Of course, if you only encounter it in long-life Tetra Paks, I understand why you’d want to amp up the aromatics. Tofu, traditionally, isn’t meant to last longer than the day it’s made. Which is why in Japan you still find itinerant tofu sellers, who ride around with a little copper horn on which they play a two-note tofu tune, and sing a song, to alert customers to their presence. Fresh and properly made, their tofu is a thing of beauty.Anna Thomson, who sent in the agedashi dofu recipe below, said her tofu dish of choice is hiyayakko and yudofu – cold and hot versions of the same simple dish: fresh silken tofu served neat, with minced ginger, finely sliced spring onion and soy sauce. And I agree. Japanese minimalism works as much life-changing magic on soybean curd as it does in sock drawers, and with a good block of tofu, there’s little else you need to do to enjoy it. But equally, that subtle flavour – nutty, fresh, vegetal – and its light, creamy texture are qualities that shine through even when paired, as in the winning Sichuan recipe, with myriad aromatics and a panful of meat.

Britain's Most LGBTQ-Friendly Employer Might Surprise You

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Lloyds Banking Group was named on Thursday as Britain’s best employer for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in a nationwide workplace equality index, followed by law firm Pinsent Masons and J.P. Morgan bank. The Top 100 Employers list by the rights charity Stonewall ranks organizations in Britain based on answers from employees about culture, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Stonewall praised Lloyds, which came second in the last year’s index, for featuring a same-sex marriage proposal in their advertising and becoming the first UK-owned company to extend private healthcare policy to transgender people. “Lloyds Banking Group is a trailblazer for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality,” Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s chief executive, said in a statement. Lloyds Banking Group Chief Executive António Horta Osório said the company was committed to supporting diversity in its workforce “so that we can harness all of the qualities and talents of our colleagues”. According to the survey, one in eight lesbian, gay and bisexual people would not feel comfortable disclosing their sexual orientation to managers or senior colleagues. It was even higher among transgender employees with one in five stating that they would not feel comfortable disclosing their gender identity to any of their colleagues. More than 92,000 employees from 439 organizations - the highest number in the index’s 12-year - took part in the survey which serves as a tool for employers to evaluate their progress on LGBT equality.   (Reporting by Magdalena Mis @magdalenamis1; Editing by Katie Nguyen.

In LGBTQ 'Paradise,' This Transgender Activist Is Breaking Barriers

BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Thai transgender activist Nada Chaiyajit completed her undergraduate studies in August, and two months later, school officials told her 12 classmates - all men - that their graduation certificates were ready. But her college, the University of Phayao in northern Thailand, would not issue her documents because she submitted a photo in which she looks like a woman, even though her identity card says she is male. “They asked me, ‘Can you take a new photo - can you tie up your hair and wear a tie to make yourself look like a man?’ I said no,” said the 37-year-old, wearing rimless spectacles and simple stretch cotton sweater and trousers. “If I tie my hair back and wear a tie, then it doesn’t belong to me. This belongs to me,” she said, gesturing at her body and holding up the contentious portrait of herself in a black and lavender graduation gown. Nada refused to dress as a man or to petition to dress as a woman on grounds of gender identity disorder, as many Thai transgender students have done. Instead, in a landmark case, she petitioned her school to issue her documents according to the gender identity she has chosen, on the basis of her rights rather than mental illness. In December, her university approved her request, laying the groundwork for Thai transgender students to get official documents according to the gender they have chosen. “When you want to fight, you have to know what documents or evidence you need to put together. I used all the lessons my law school taught me,” she said. Edmund Settle, who oversees the U.N. Development Program’s Being LGBT in Asia initiative, said most people take the easiest route and use gender identity disorder - or gender dysphoria - to change documents. “From a rights perspective, this is the first time I’ve heard a case like this. It’s definitely precedent setting,” Settle said. Thailand is widely seen as a paradise for gay and transgender people, with transgender women commonly seen on TV, in beauty pageants and cabarets, and at hair salons and cosmetics counters. Yet the country’s rigid bureaucratic rules are still adjusting to include transgender rights. This is the case across Asia, where getting documents such as ID cards changed is extremely difficult for trans people, said Cianan Russell of the Bangkok-based Asia Pacific Transgender Network. “The vast majority of trans people in this region are unable to change their documents at all, and those who are able are held to pretty severe standards,” said Russell, a transgender man from the United States. The requirements can include being sterilized, having familial consent, not being married or divorced, not having children, or even a mental health diagnosis, he said. “When trans people are unable to change documents, they’re unable to access education, housing, employment, healthcare - anything people need to live their daily lives is impeded by these documents,” Russell said. Since Nada’s case was approved last month, about 10 more transgender students at her university have come forward with their own petitions.   RIGID RULES IN PARADISE In 2015, Thailand’s Gender Equality Act came into effect, outlawing gender-based discrimination and inclusive of lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT). Yet the country has some way to go in recognizing transgender rights, activists say. For example, transgender women had been exempted from the military draft with “permanent mental disorder” noted in their records until 2012, when the wording was softened to “gender identity disorder” - but still implying psychological abnormality. Thai universities have allowed transgender students to dress as women for official documents and graduation ceremonies on grounds of having gender identity disorder. Nada refused this route on principle but needed her papers because she had started applications for the prestigious Chevening scholarship in Britain. Deadlines passed. She considered caving to the university rules. Then one of her mentors - a prominent Thai human rights lawyer - persuaded her to carry on to set a precedent. “You help trans people access justice,” Nada recalled her mentor telling her. “You are the person who helps them write complaints for the committee that considers gender-based discrimination. Will you give up on your own case?” Wuttichai Chairinkam, University of Phayao vice president for student affairs and chairman of the committee that considered Nada’s petition, said her case was not about discrimination, but merely updating bureaucratic procedures. “We do not discriminate against these students, and in fact, we praise them, but it just takes time to adjust and solve these issues,” Wuttichai said. Nada’s case goes beyond the university, he said, and it is an issue that needs to be addressed across Thai society - from elementary schools to professional associations. Many transgender people say they know before kindergarten that they identify as another gender. Some start taking hormones at the first signs of puberty to suppress male or female traits. “If we allow this in high school, university - what about at elementary level?” Wuttichai said. “We might have to prepare all of society to solve this problem ... so it’s an enduring solution.”   GENDER, NOT GENITALS When Nada was three, she asked her mother if she could wear a tutu. She kept her hair cropped short and dressed as a boy most of her childhood, then grew her hair out and began dressing as a woman after high school. She underwent sex reassignment surgery in 2008, when she was 28. Her transition was not without struggle. She described being abandoned by her family, attempting suicide four times, and dropping out of a university in Bangkok in 2003. At each exam at that university, monitors grilled her - in a room full of hundreds of students - because she looked like a woman but dressed in trousers as required because her identity card says she is male. The humiliating scrutiny proved too much. But in 2013, she enrolled in an undergraduate law course at University of Phayao and completed her studies in August. When she told school officials about her sexual reassignment surgery, they said her case would be straightforward. But Nada said she didn’t want surgery to be a precondition for students to dress according to their chosen gender for university photos and graduation. “I said no, you can’t say that. Gender expression isn’t about genitals. Gender expression is about self-determination,” she said, adding that some transgender students cannot afford expensive surgical procedures. In late December, her petition was granted. She received her documents in person from school officials last Friday. “The day I got the documents in my hands, my hands were shaking,” she said. “You finally feel like you have justice in your hands. The documents look simple, but for me... it’s a victory, a victory for my life.”   (Reporting by Alisa Tang @alisatang, editing by Ros Russell.

"Роснефть" и ExxonMobil расширяют сотрудничество

14 февраля. FINMARKET.RU - "Роснефть" и ExxonMobil расширили масштабы сотрудничества в рамках соглашения о стратегическом сотрудничестве 2011 года, дополнительно включив в него около 600 000 квадратных километров разведочной площади на российском арктическом шельфе, потенциальное участие "Роснефти" (или ее аффилированного лица) в проекте Point Thomson на Аляске и совместную оценку возможностей реализации проекта СПГ на российском Дальнем Востоке. Соглашения, предусматривающие геологоразведочные работы по семи новым участкам в Чукотском море, море Лаптевых и Карском море, были подписаны президентом "Роснефти" Игорем Сечиным и президентом компании ExxonMobil Стивеном Гринли в присутствии президента России Владимира Путина, говорится в сообщении российской компании. Лицензионные участки - Северо-Врангелевский-1, Северо-Врангелевский-2 и Южно-Чукотский в Чукотском море; Усть-Оленекский, Усть-Ленский и Анисинско-Новосибирский в море Лаптевых; и Северо-Карский блок в Карском море - входят в число наиболее перспективных и наименее изученных участков шельфа в мире. Были подписаны отдельные Базовые условия соглашения, предоставляющие "Роснефти" право приобретения 25-процентной доли в проекте разработки газоконденсатного месторождения на участке Пойнт Томсон в нефтегазоносном бассейне Северный склон Аляски. По имеющейся оценке, на месторождение Point Thomson приходится около 25% доказанных запасов газа Северного склона Аляски. "Роснефть" и ExxonMobil также подписали Меморандум о взаимопонимании с целью совместной оценки экономической целесообразности реализации проекта СПГ на российском Дальнем Востоке, включая возможное строительство завода СПГ. Компании создадут совместную рабочую группу, которая в ближайшие недели должна приступить к работе по изучению целесообразности проекта СПГ на базе имеющихся ресурсов природного газа. Комментируя достигнутые договоренности, Игорь Сечин сказал: "С подписанием сегодняшних соглашений беспрецедентное по своим масштабам партнерство между "Роснефтью" и ExxonMobil выходит на совершенно новый уровень. Площадь участков в российской части Арктики, на которых планируется провести геологоразведку и которые предполагается в дальнейшем осваивать, увеличилась почти в 6 раз. Это значит, что огромный ресурсный потенциал российских арктических шельфовых месторождений будет освоен максимально эффективно с применением передовых технологий и опыта нашего стратегического партнера ExxonMobil при условии использования новейших природоохранных систем. Участие в проекте Point Thomson позволит получить новейшие технологии разработки газоконденсатных месторождений в тяжелых климатических условиях." Используя передовой мировой опыт, компании разработают новейшие природоохранные системы и системы безопасности для арктических проектов. Эта работа подкрепляется недавно подписанной Декларацией о бережном освоении российского арктического шельфа. Кроме того, "Роснефть" и ExxonMobil будут вести совместную работу в рамках Центра арктических исследований, предоставляя полный объем научно-технических услуг совместным проектам освоения арктического шельфа.
