SSP, which operates UK travel sites for brands including Starbucks and Upper Crust, has reported a 2.7% increase in like-for-like sales in its third quarter.The company said like-for-like growth in the period from 1 April to 30 June 2018 in the UK and Continental Europe had been broadly in line with the first half of the year, driven by continued growth in the air sector.But the company added that, as expected, trading in the rail sector continued to be weaker, and had also been impacted by strike action in France.SSP said total group revenue had increased by 7.3% on a constant currency basis. At actual exchange rates, the relative strength of sterling against most currencies meant total group revenues rose 5.8% year-on-year.“We have seen a good improvement in the operating margin in the third quarter, driven by the ongoing roll-out of our strategic initiatives, with operating margin growth a little ahead of that seen in the first half,” stated SSP.“Looking forward, whilst a degree of uncertainty always exists around passenger numbers in the short term, we are well placed to continue to benefit from the structural growth opportunities in our markets and to create further shareholder value.”SSP last year opened its first Knead concept store at London’s Euston station in partnership with Paul Hollywood.
The Independent 10 Dec 2012Parents should drink less in front of their children if they want to prevent their offspring becoming binge drinkers, a new report suggests today.The authors of research by the think-tank Demos said it was “not enough” for parents to wait until their children were in bed before opening the bottle, because their interviews suggested “children are more aware than they are often given credit for.”They added: “Nor does this mean that parents can never drink in the presence of their children. But it does mean that parents should bear in mind how frequently they are drinking – particularly in front of their children.”The two-year study, Feeling the Effects, studied the lives of 17,000 in Birth Cohort Study and in-depth interviews with 50 families where there was at least one problem drinkers.Parents with high alcohol consumption were less likely to practise the “tough love” type of parenting which best stops children developing traits associated with excessive drinking, the authors, Jonathan Birdwell, Emma Vandore and Bryanna Hahn, said.They found that teenagers who perceived their mother to drink “always” were almost two times more likely to drink hazardously themselves as adults than those who reported that their mother drank “sometimes”.http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/parents-should-drink-alcohol-less-in-front-of-their-children-says-report-8397788.html
Sharing is caring! Share News Queen Champions Women As “Agents For Change” by: – March 14, 2011 10 Views no discussions Tweet Share The Queen has just issued her traditional message. This year it focusses on women and describes them as “Agents for Change”.She explains that, 26 million girls are born in the Commonwealth every year, which equates to one per second. Carrying the idea further, she points out that, during the service at Westminster Abbey today, which she will attend as Head of the Commonwealth, nearly four thousand girls will be born. Reflecting on the recent centenary of International Women’s Day she almost directs her many Commonwealth governments to do more to support women and their capacity to contribute.Here is the text:“Last week, on the 8th of March, we marked the hundredth anniversary of the first International Women’s Day. The idea of having a women’s day was first proposed against the backdrop of the rapid industrialisation of the early twentieth century. From small beginnings, this idea has grown to become a widely recognised way of celebrating women around the world. While some people use this day to acknowledge the love, admiration and respect for women, others use it to remember the great social and political strides made both by and for women in the last hundred years. There is no right or wrong approach.“In the Commonwealth, every year, 26 million girls are born; and this equates to one new baby girl arriving almost every second of every day. In the time it takes to hold the Commonwealth Observance Service at Westminster Abbey, nearly four thousand girls will have been born in Commonwealth lands. And every one of these births marks the start of a new life, a journey which begins with the hopes of parents, families and communities, and which is continued through the aspirations of those girls themselves.Source: Sky News Share

The county’s deputy public heath officer, Dr. Dean Sidelinger said it’s important to boost immunizations rates.“If vaccination rates go down, it is easier for someone who has measles to spread that disease in our community so we went to keep vaccination rates high. School entry laws that require vaccines on entry to school are the one of the most effective tools we have to ensure that our children and the broader population are immunized,” Sidelinger said.There are some exemptions for immunizations, which are required for students attending public and private schools in California. Prior to the 2016-2017 school year, parents could obtain an exemption from immunizations for personal beliefs. With a change in state law, most exemptions are now only issued for medical reasons.According to the Department of Public Health, the number of permanent medical exemptions written in San Diego County has increased. State health officials reported 599 medical exemptions in 2018-2019, which was five times more than the 108 that were written by doctors in 2015-2016, the year before the ban on personal belief exemptions took effect.As San Diego gets ready for a busy summer travel season, the public health department is also sending out letters to members of the Filipino community to suggest vaccinations for anyone who is traveling to the Philippines, which has one of the world’s largest active measles outbreaks.
