Show Comments ▼ London Conservative MPs Sir Iain Duncan Smith, Sir Robert Neill, Bob Blackman and David Simmonds have all publicly said they are in the rebel camp. At least one-in-three London Conservative MPs are supportive of a potential parliamentary rebellion led by a group of powerful backbenchers. Graham Brady, chair of the powerful 1922 committee of Conservative backbenchers, has today tabled an amendment to a government bill that is believed to have the support of up to 80 Conservative MPs if it is chosen by Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle.

Share A further three London Tories told City A.M. that they were sympathetic to Brady’s amendment and would likely vote for it if it came before the House of Commons. This would give it enough support to deliver Johnson an embarrassing parliamentary defeat if opposition parties voted for it – a prospect that is considered likely. whatsapp The Tory revolt is a sign of growing discontent among the party’s backbenches, which has been bubbling under for months now. City A.M. understands that at least seven out of the capital’s 21 Tory MPs support a tabled amendment that would see Boris Johnson’s powers to implement new Covid restrictions curbed. The Prime Minister is currently negotiating with Brady over the rebellion, with many speculating that the original legislation will be changed to appease the rebel Tory MPs and allow some parliamentary oversight on future decisions. One-third of London Tory MPs ready to rebel against PM on Covid powers One MP said the latest coronavirus restrictions were “too draconian” and if Johnson announced a new national lockdown at his 5pm press conference today that there would be an “open rebellion” in the party. The amendment calls for parliament to have a say over all future coronavirus restrictions in what would be a major blow to Johnson as unrest grows among Tory MPs over the latest swathe of rules.

Consumer confidence is also high with the confidence index published by market researchers GFK scoring four in July. It marks a slight drop compared with June’s score of seven, but the index is at historically high levels with last month’s score marking the highest this century. “With wage inflation outstripping price inflation, and good news about improving growth and employment prospects, our expectations to next summer remain stable and considerably more optimistic than during July last year,” said Joe Staton, head of market dynamics at GFK. “Overall, despite this month’s dip, the underlying message is strong.” The CBI said it put the economy on a firm footing going forward.

North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) News North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55% Facebook Twitter A cadre in North Hamgyong Province was reportedly sacked when a Central Committee inspection in mid-December revealed that he had used his money and power to get his child into the province’s Middle School No. 1, a feeder school for the nation’s elite universities.A source in North Hamgyong Province told Daily NK on Thursday that the Central Committee conducted an inspection on Middle School No. 1 in North Hamgyong Province in mid-December. He said a local cadre was dismissed “on the charge of obstructing the cultivation of human resources” when his actions came to light during the inspection.According to the source, officials sent from Pyongyang in early December conducted tests to ascertain the level of students at the top middle schools of each province. When many students at North Hamgyong Province’s Middle School No. 1 scored low on the test, the authorities carried out an inspection of the school.Central Committee officials investigated several students who scored far lower than other students. Declaring that the presence of such untalented students at the province’s top middle school to be a problem in and of itself, the officials were in the process of calling the school to account when they discovered someone had used their power to get their child into the school.The matter was reported straight away to the Central Committee and an inspection was launched.Students at the Mangyongdae Revolutionary School in Pyongyang. / Image: KCNA“In fact, the inspection revealed that the head of the economic inspection department of the Ministry of Social Security’s Onsong County branch had used his power and money to get his son into Middle School No. 1, and the leadership sacked him on Dec. 23, holding him responsible for obstructing the party’s policy for cultivating human resources,” the source told Daily NK. The inspection also revealed that the province’s Middle School No. 1 had been admitting a few students every year through a “special” admissions system. According to the source, the school said it did this so it could buy necessary supplies for the school. But with authorities refusing to accept the explanation, locals are saying the school employees involved will face punishment, too.“Recently, cadres and residents with money have been showing interest in Middle School No. 1,” said the source. “It’s a stepping stone for getting into a good university, and people believe it’s the best way to get your kid’s military duty shortened from 10 years to three.”In fact, if you graduate from an ordinary middle school in North Korea, you must serve 10 years in the military, but if you graduate from a provincial Middle School No. 1, you only have to serve about three years after graduating from university.That is to say, since students of a provincial Middle School No. 1 can “secure the foundation” to become a cadre by graduating university and doing their military service while ordinary students are still doing their 10-year stints in the armed forces, households with money and power are trying to get their children into the elite schools.“This year, two or three talented students will be selected through tests in each county or city district, and then they’ll come together to take the entry exam for Middle School No. 1,” said the source. “This means the competition will be fiercer than ever.”Please direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store News News SHARE Jong So YongJong So Yong is one of Daily NK’s freelance reporters.

James Langton In response to ongoing complaints about activist short-sellers, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) are launching a public consultation to examine whether there’s actually a problem, and if so, what to do about it.In a new paper, the CSA explores the subject of short sellers who publicly stake out their negative position on a company through social media or other means. SEC calls for input on climate-risk disclosure Issuers and others have complained to the regulators that it’s too easy for loudmouthed shorts to publicly attack companies in an effort to drive down their stock prices and generate profits for traders that are short on that stock.In its paper, the CSA sets out the results of its initial research into the subject, which suggests that activist short-selling campaigns are notably less prevalent in Canada than they are in the U.S.On average, over the past 10 years, five of every 1,000 listed Canadian companies has faced an activist short campaign, compared with 21 U.S. companies.That said, the activity has increased over the past five years — usually focused on sectors where there’s perceived overvaluation, such as Canada’s red hot cannabis sector a couple of years ago.The paper also examines the state of short selling regulation in Canada and the rest of the world.Critics have long complained that the Canadian approach to short selling generally is too lax. Yet, regulators have defended the Canadian regime and made the case for ensuring that short selling is part of the market as it contributes to market liquidity and price discovery.Nevertheless, the CSA’s paper invites feedback on whether the short selling rules should be revisited, whether enforcement needs to change, and whether it should be easier for activist shorts to be sued in civil court for damaging conduct.“In recent years, activist short-selling campaigns have received considerably more attention, and stakeholders have raised concerns about the overall impact of this activity on our markets,” said Louis Morisset, chair of the CSA and president and CEO of the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF).“To further inform our analysis, we are seeking comment on issues identified through our research,” he said.The deadline for responses is March 3, 2021.

Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill, says the winter tourist season, now in its second month, is performing well, with growth in arrivals over last year.Dr. McNeill, who spoke with reporters on February 6, while touring several sites in Trench Town, St. Andrew, as part of activities to mark the 69th birthday of reggae icon, Bob Marley, said the preliminary figure is showing an increase of 4.7 per cent over last year.The Minister noted that the figure could have been better if weather conditions in the United States (US), had not affected flights coming to Jamaica.“We are talking to our partners to see how we can arrange it. There is nothing to really worry or panic about, but the big picture is that Jamaica continues to do very well in its tourist arrivals,” Dr. McNeill said.He lauded the effort of groups and individuals as well as agencies, to keep the Bob Marley celebrations going on his birthday. “We market Kingston as the cultural capital of the Caribbean, but there is so much more we have to offer, and what we want to do is to determine how we can develop this into a more formal tour,” the Minister said.Dr. McNeill said people come to Kingston, and “they want to see what it is we have to offer, and we have to ensure that we package it in a way where it is saleable to the maximum.”The Minister urged more Jamaicans, especially students, to visit the Trench Town area and to understand the history and heritage.Dr. McNeill was accompanied on the tour by his State Minister, Hon. Damion Crawford; Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke, community leaders, and agency officials.

HomeNewsFresh Finds: Roan Mills sourdough bread Mar. 31, 2018 at 5:01 amNewsFresh Finds: Roan Mills sourdough breadKate Cagle3 years agodaily pressdowntown santa monicaFresh FindsNewsSanta Monica The same woman who helped revolutionize the local food movement by growing lettuce in her backyard for Alice Waters and Wolfgang Puck is now baking bread for Santa Monica tables.In fact, Andrea Crawford isn’t just baking the bread. She’s growing the wheat herself on Kenter Canyon Farms, milling the flour and then baking incredibly fresh sourdough loaves in downtown Fillmore for Santa Monica’s Wednesday downtown farmers market and a few local Whole Foods locations.Unlike the box-shaped, pre-sliced and packaged loaves at the grocery store containing dozens of ingredients, Roan Mills loaves are made the old-fashioned way with just flour, salt, and water.Traditionalists argue mass manufactured bread and traditional sourdough have little in common.Despite humanity’s long history with bread dating back more than five thousand years, wheat (and specifically) gluten have come under increased scrutiny over the past decade.“Not everybody eats bread these days because you can’t really get good bread,” said Crawford’s son Charlie Dedlow, on a recent rainy Wednesday, “but when people try our bread they always end up dropping all of their opinions.”Crawford’s grain program launched in 2012 with fifty acres of Sonora, Glenn, and Red Fife wheat varieties. The original crop was irrigated with only seasonal winter rains. The wheat thrived – producing 80,0000 pounds of grain about seven months later. The wheat is milled to order to retain as much nutrition as possible.“While a wheat berry can last for centuries in viable conditions, once it’s milled into flour the oxidation processes begin to erode the overall quality and within six months the flour will have lost some of its vitality,” according to the Roan Mills website. “We mill flour every day and all the flavor, vitality and freshness is captured in every loaf we bake.”“When you’re milling fresh flour you can really taste the difference in the bread,” Dedlow said. “That’s part of the reason people love our bread so much. It’s milled right away and holds more nutritional content.”Once the flour makes it to the baker, each loaf takes about 48 hours to bake from start to finish. The flour, salt, and water are mixed with a sourdough starter and allowed to set. Before the sun comes up, bakers shape the dough into individual loaves and then place them into rotating ovens. The bakers start their shifts at midnight and work until four in the morning. A few hours later it’s in the hands of the very first customers.Roan Mills has expanded into nine local Whole Foods stores. Wednesday is the only Santa Monica farmers market you can find the bread. Fans know to get to the market early before they sell out.Their most popular bread is the $8 Sonora Country Blonde, a 100 percent whole grain sourdough bread. At the market, a sandwich loaf and a baguette cost $6.Santa Monica has four weekly farmers markets including the Wednesday Downtown market on Arizona Avenue between 4th and Ocean from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the Saturday Downtown market on Arizona Avenue between 4th and 2nd Streets from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the Saturday Virginia Ave. Park market at 2200 Virginia Avenue from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and the Sunday Main Street market at 2640 Main Street from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 [email protected] :daily pressdowntown santa monicaFresh FindsNewsSanta Monicashare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentKate CagleSenior ReporterSenior reporter for the Santa Monica Daily Pressview all postsFord lends logo and brand power to local scooter start-upNo April Fools edition this yearYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall10 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson21 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter21 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor21 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press21 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press21 hours ago
