First-half pre-tax profit was £22.7m – 29 per cent up on the £17.6m it made in the same period a year earlier. Sales were £988.3m, compared with £870.4m.New car sales increased by a quarter despite fears over consumer confidence and government cuts. The parts division will help the firm weather these conditions, it added.Chief executive Peter Jones said: “We have delivered a record trading performance in the first six months of 2010 and we are very encouraged by this result.’He added: “The strong performance from both the parts and motor divisions, a reduced cost base together with significant positive operational cashflow which has strengthened the balance sheet, gives us confidence that we can continue to grow the business.”Lookers operates 120 retail outlets covering 32 brands.Earlier this month, industry figures showed monthly car sales fell in July for the first time in a year.Much of that decline was put down to the end of the vehicle scrappage scheme in which consumers were encouraged via incentives to scrap their old vehicle to replace witha new car from the showroom, in a bid to boost the ailing industry. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Recently, the leader of a livestock organization told me, “The amount of energy that is spent within agriculture fighting back the activists is completely disproportional to what the real concern of the general public is.” We need to focus more on winning the war and not winning every battle. Keeping Panera in Perspective Panera Bread is just the latest food retailer to take cheap shots at American farmers. The restaurant chain launched a marketing campaign that puts forth the notion that farmers who employ the use of antibiotics are taking the “easy” and less ethical path to raising healthy food. In addition, the campaign implied that food bought at other restaurants was not as healthy and perhaps not even safe. Panera, of course, claims its food is all natural, antibiotic free, and better to eat. While these kinds of claims about food produced with certain production systems is not new, what set the ag community on edge was the implication that farmers who use methods Panera does not approve of are “lazy.” The ag advocate community went into action and began blasting Panera in blogs and social media channels. Some even called on farmers to drive their tractors to Panera in protest. But, before you fire up the John Deere and go in search of a Panera, you may want to sit back and get some perspective. SHARE By Gary Truitt – Aug 4, 2013 Facebook Twitter by Gary Truitt Home Commentary Keeping Panera in Perspective Let’s not let our egos get too easily bruised by people who are only trying to further their own causes at agriculture’s expense. We must stand ready to counter false claims keep but our perspective. Write your blog posts, sign your facebook petitions, cut up your Panera loyalty cards, but let us not be distracted from the ultimate goal of protecting and maintaining livestock production with safe and approved technology. First of all, we should not be surprised by this kind of stuff. It is not the first time a large retail chain that caters to food elitists has launched this kind of campaign. The Chipotle chain created an anti-farmer television commercial a year ago that caused a similar uproar. Second, we need to consider the source. Is this a mainstream, well-known brand that suddenly turns on American agriculture, or it is a niche franchise, marketing their products to a particular segment of society in a specific geographic region? Panera is only located in urban areas populated by higher level, working professionals, who have the money and desire to pay for highly specialized food products. You won’t find Panera stores in low income neighborhoods or small towns. In other words, Panera does not really care what farmers think of them or if they don’t buy their food. Previous articleState Fair Off To A Great StartNext articleWhy I Farm: Bryon Coffman Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE Next we should consider: are their claims true? Of course they are not true. Farmers are not lazy, and the use of antibiotics in livestock production is legal and is acceptable to most consumers. There is no credible proof that meat produced with these methods is any less safe, nutritious, or healthy. So we can rest assured the charges are baseless. Thus, we can assume that the reason for the charge was to falsely inflate the image of the food products. Let’s face it, when you bite into a Panera chicken sandwich, you cannot tell if that chicken ever had a shot of penicillin. So Panera’s claims are nothing more than an attempt to justify the exorbitant prices it charges for food that is no better than you can buy at the sub shop down the street. So, is it worth mounting a national campaign to punish Panera for its transgression? Probably not. It is not likely to change Panera’s mind and, in fact, may even help its cause. I am not suggesting that we ignore such egregious insults, but let’s choose our battles. Let us take on those issues we stand a chance of winning and those situations where a significant portion of the food consuming population is involved.

Veterans Services also provides academic advising and disability assistance to veteran programming, benefits information and counseling.“My grandfather and many of my immediate family are all veterans – this is an extraordinarily important community to me both personally and professionally,” Jimenez said.Jimenez said that the veteran student population at TCU is comprised of 388 students and is continually growing as new students come in. There are 252 student veterans and 136 dependents who use a financial aid – such as the G.I. Bill. Since Jimenez is a new employee at TCU, he created this “Vet Talk” to gain a better understanding of the veteran community.“It is important to me to learn about our student veterans’ experiences at TCU and how I can support their success on campus,” said Jimenez.The goals of the Vet Talk are very similar to those of the Student Veterans of America organization. The organization, The Student Veterans of America, has over 1500 chapters around the world that serve thousands of student veterans and alumni veterans.The organization’s mission is to provide student veterans with “resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.” TCU partners with this organization to help provide services and support for our students.“The first event had a great dialogue about many important topics and we hope to continue that next week,” said April Brown, director of veterans services, in the bi-weekly newsletter.

By banning Guo Guoting from following his profession, the authorities are also denying journalists and cyberdissidents of their fundamental right to be defended,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said in a letter to Justice Minister, Zhang Fusen.The lawyer told Reporters Without Borders that the seizing of his computer and his licence was a form of “theft”. He had been warned that the ban would last one year. A hearing will take place in Shanghai on 4 March to confirm the ban.He said the decision followed pressure from Beijing to prevent him from defending journalist Shi Tao, whose trial in Changsha for “illegally divulging state secrets abroad” is to be held behind closed doors on 7 March. Despite this, Guo Guoting was still planning to attend court with a colleague. ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders expressed outrage at the treatment of a brave lawyer, who defends journalists and dissidents facing heavy prison sentences, after the Justice department in Shanghai, eastern China, searched Guo Guoding’s office on 23 February and seized his computer and lawyer’s licence. A few days later he was banned from practising his profession. Guo Guoting, also known as Thomas Guo, said the Shi Tao case was based on a poorly defined law on state secrets. The interpretation of and concept of so-called secrets was very vague so it was easy for the authorities to apply this law to journalists expressing themselves too freely.Guo Guoting is one of very few Chinese lawyers prepared to defend journalists and cyberdissidents. He recently took on the cases of dissident journalist Yang Tianshui, just released after a month in prison in Hangzhou in the southeast, and of cyberdissident Huang Jinqiu, sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2004. Guo Guoding recently brought to international attention the fact that Huang Jinqiu was tortured to prevent him from bringing an appeal before the supreme court. Reporters Without Borders expressed outrage after courageous lawyer Guo Guoting, who has defended several journalists and cyberdissidents facing harsh prison sentences, was warned he is to be banned from practising law.

No genuine business or charity will mind you carrying out your own enquiries or calling An Garda Síochána. If a person calls to your door offering you professional trade services, selling goods or collecting for a charity and you are worried they are not bona fide, tell the caller that you never deal with people who ‘cold call’ to your door.
