In November the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) predicted inflation of 2.8 per cent for this year, yet was forced to revise the forecast up to 4.2 per cent on Wednesday.The government’s spending plans are “uncomfortably dependent” on the OBR’s wider forecasts and judgements on the economy, the IFS director Paul Johnson said, referring to its GDP forecasts and estimates of the economy’s output gap.In a statement released to coincide with chancellor George Osborne’s Budget, the OBR admitted that danger to the deficit reduction plan.“The biggest threat is the possibility that we have over-estimated the amount of spare capacity in the economy, now or in the future,” it said.“If the output gap was roughly 1.5 per cent of potential output smaller than our central estimate then the government would no longer be on course to balance the cyclically-adjusted current budget in five years’ time.” KCS-content Soaring inflation will worsen cuts, says IFS by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBePeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald last_img read more

Why the hype over France’s Gael Fickou

No Comments

first_imgToulouse’s centre Gael Fickou eyes the ball during the French Top 14 rugby union match Stade Toulousain vs. Mont-de-Marsan on August 25, 2012 at the Ernest Wallon Stadium in Toulouse , southern France. AFP PHOTO PASCAL PAVANI (Photo credit should read PASCAL PAVANI/AFP/GettyImages) Too much too soon: Over-exposure may lead to another young star burning outBy Gavin MortimerLET’S NOT get carried away. Gael Fickou had a good game for Toulouse in their win over Leicester on Sunday, but was the 18-year-old’s try-scoring performance really that special?  Sure, Fickou showed the presence of mind and a sharp turn of pace to pounce on a loose ball and sprint 45 metres for the only try of a disappointing game. That was enough to convince one British newspaper that Fickou is set to be “rugby’s next global superstar”. A wee bit premature on the back of one Heineken Cup match against a Tigers team with surprisingly blunt claws.Nonetheless Fickou clearly has class. Standing 6ft 2in and 14stone, he was the star of the French team in last summer’s U20 World Cup in South Africa. Fickou scored three tries in four matches, proof that Toulouse were right to offer him a home after he was released by Toulon at the end of last season.Unable to earn a place in a Toulon backline containing Matt Giteau and Maxime Mermoz, Fickou has quickly been given his opportunity at Toulouse. So far this season he’s made five appearances in the Top 14, scoring one try and earning cautious praise from that wily old campaigner Guy Noves. The veteran coach describes Fickou as “intelligent” [he hopes to combine his rugby with a degree in commerce and management], and says his attitude “corresponds to the Toulouse philosophy.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS However, during his 19 years in charge of Toulouse, Noves has seen more than his fair share of promising teenage players fail to negotiate the rocky path from adolescence to manhood. Admitting that the club has a lot of hope for Fickou, Noves said that he must “work hard for two or three seasons if he wants to reach the top level”. Then he added: “Is Gaël Fickou the best centre in France today? No. Could he be one day? I don’t know, we’ll see. He wants to work [at becoming the best] and we’re going to help him.” So is Philippe Saint-Andre, the coach of France who on Tuesday named Fickou in his 33-man squad for the autumn Tests.Les Bleus face Argentina, Australia and Samoa next month and there’s a good chance Fickou will win his first cap in one of those matches. One notable absentee from the French squad is Aurélien Rougerie, the veteran Clermont centre who looks to have played his last Test for France. Who needs a 32-year-old when you have the 18-year-old Fickou, the 24-year-old Wesley Fofana and the 26-year-old Maxime Mermoz? “At the moment I have the impression to be living the dream,” said Fickou in the wake of his man of the match performance against Leicester. He then thanked his Toulouse teammates, notably fellow centres Yannick Jauzion and Florian Fritz, for their help in bringing him this far. So he’s modest, too…the boy appears to have everything!Who knows, perhaps Fickou really is “rugby’s next global superstar” , or perhaps he’s just another good player put on a pedestal by a media always on the lookout for heroes. Don’t forget they were saying the same thing about Danny Cipriani six years ago, and these days the 24-year-old struggles to get in to the Sale team.last_img read more

4 quick tips to keep you safe on the road

No Comments

first_img Please enter your name here The warmer weather means longer days, backyard barbecues and weekends away. Before setting out on the open road, make sure you and your vehicle are ready for the journey ahead. Hankook Tire took a look at driving trends and behaviors to identify what drivers do (or forget to do) to keep safe on the road this season.1. Keep your eyes on the road.One of the easiest ways to avoid accidents, wrong turns or other highway mishaps is to stay focused. Cell phones are most often responsible for distracted driving, according to the latest Hankook Tire Gauge Index. One-third (33 percent) of Americans regularly take phone calls while on the road, and one in 10 drivers (11 percent) admit to texting while driving. To help put this risk into perspective, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports texting while driving on the highway is equivalent to driving blindfolded for the length of an entire football field. Promising news for drivers is that the Gauge also found that nearly one-half (49 percent) of drivers use Bluetooth, dictation or do-not-disturb features while driving to maintain better focus while on the road.2. Take advantage of tech.As automotive technology continues to advance, cars are constantly updated with the latest and greatest to make your time behind the wheel more comfortable, more efficient and safer. Over one-third, (34 percent) of drivers reported their vehicles are equipped with a rearview camera, and 26 percent have adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed to maintain a safe driving distance. While 73 percent of Americans find these enhanced safety features very useful, the Gauge Index found that more than half (57 percent) of drivers don’t actually use them. Regardless of the features in your car, it’s important to not let the summer fun distract you from checking rear and side view mirrors, blind spots and speed.3. Don’t tread lightly.Before a road trip, most people fill up the tank, gather snacks and make sure the kids are set up with movies and games. What about your tires? Americans are mostly likely to check the condition of their tires if they appear to look low or uneven (65 percent) or if a warning light appears (49 percent).Even if not prompted by a warning light or unusual sounds, always double check your tires’ air pressure and tread depth before an extended trip, as healthy tires improve gas mileage and save money at the pump. In addition to the financial benefits of healthy tires, Americans also recognize the importance of tire tread in providing safety and control, as 75 percent of drivers think about how effective their tire tread is when driving through heavy rain, and 61 percent are mindful of their tread when driving on a hairpin turn. Additionally, close to one-fifth (18 percent) of Americans believe enhanced tire grip provides more safety on tough turns than wider lanes, reduced speed limits or road sign warnings.4. Who ya’ gonna call?Even the most prepared and proactive drivers can end up on the side of the road because of unforeseen driving events. Whether it’s a flat tire, dead battery or overheated engine, 41 percent of Americans listed an auto club as their first phone call, followed by their significant other at 27 percent, according to the Gauge Index. Only 3 percent of respondents recognized that their first call should be to local authorities, who can update traffic information, create a safe roadside situation and send the proper help to get you back on the road safely.By following these quick tips and guidelines to safety, you can go full steam ahead to wherever your destination this summer may be!

He welcomed Manda’s resignation and said he hoped his successor would “really help the Burundian press to progress.”_____________________________________________________________ 25. 07. 05 Police close radio station, briefly arrest eight journalistsReporters Without Borders today condemned the closure of a privately-owned radio station, Radio Publique Africaine (RPA), by police on 22 July and the arrest of eight of its journalists for several hours. The station had reopened the previous day after suspending its broadcasts on 19 and 20 July at the behest of the National Commission for Communication (CNC).”It is shocking that the authorities sent armed police to close the station’s premises and arrest journalists,” the organisation said, deploring the CNC’s failure to respect its commitment to let the station reopen.Police said it was President Domitien Ndayizeye who gave the orders to close the station on 22 July. The day after the raid, the president received representatives of journalists’ associations who are trying to mediate between the CNC and RPA. The president’s spokesman subsequently said RPA would be able to reopen soon. The head of a local press watchdog, Abbot Emmanuel Muyehe, said the station would be able to resume broadcasting this week.The CNC ordered RPA’s indefinite closure on 14 July for failing to respect “pluralism”in its coverage of municipal and legislative elections on 3 and 4 July. The station was above all accused of failing to give live coverage of the meetings held by the president’s party, the Front for the Defence of Democracy in Burundi (FRODEBU).last_img read more

Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home

Were they members of the security forces, as their accusations suggest?For the past few months, Kassa has been covering the conflict between Ethiopia’s federal government and the local authorities in the northern Tigray region. Her reporting has tackled very sensitive subjects such as the role of Eritrean soldiers in the fighting, the conditions of displaced persons, and cases of sexual violence against women in the region.“This act of violence and these threats come at a time of great tension, and it is intolerable that journalists who bravely try to report what is happening, often at risk to their lives, are subjected to such harassment and intimidation,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This courageous journalist has been subjected to serious threats. We ask the authorities to take all necessary steps to identify her attackers and deter them from targeting her again.”When reached by RSF, Kassa said she no longer felt safe in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa. A few hours after our phone call, a car overtaking at high speed nearly smashed into the taxi in which she was travelling in the city.Journalism is again a dangerous profession in Ethiopia. Torn by ethnic clashes and by open warfare in the Tigray region, where the local authorities no longer recognize the federal government, Ethiopia is seeing fighting and massacres more typical of a civil war, and the situation of journalists has declined dramatically since late 2020.Covering the fighting in Tigray has been nearly impossible because of bans on access and cuts in communications networks. As well as being deprived of information, journalists have also sometimes been deprived of their freedom. RSF has registered seven arbitrary arrests of journalists in connection with these events since the start of the hostilities in November.Ethiopia is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.
