Jeremy Corbyn’s dress sense

For many Italians it’s not Jeremy Corbyn’s supposedly Marxist lite economic policies, his commitment to unilateral nuclear disarmament or even his republicanism that has caught their attention.

South of the Alps, in the Bel paese, the real question mark hovering over the Labour leader is his dress sense or lack thereof.

Like Michael Foot, his predecessor of 35 years ago, the Labour leader’s scant regard for fashion, or even the traditional Westminster dress norms, has raised some eyebrows in Britain.

It displayed 13 photos of what it considered were Mr Corbyn’s biggest style faux pas, including his outing in shorts with trainers and long black socks. Neither was it impressed with his jackets or panama hats.

It said or perhaps hoped that Mr Corbyn’s aides were currently organising a style overhaul.

But while Mr Corbyn may trail in the style stakes, Italian political pundits have noted that the veteran leftist is known for his diligence, honesty and good manners three traits not apparent in a great many Italian parliamentarians, who are the highest paid in Europe.

This week two right wing senators were suspended for five days after making obscene and sexist gestures at a female senator during a debate on constitutional reform. One of the pair, Vincenzo D’Anna, appeared in front of TV cameras on 7 October, in an expensive suit, looking plump and declaring he would go on an unlikely hunger strike, in protest at his suspension.

How To Calculate Turnover Ratio in Basketball

The turnover ratio in basketball is a statistic that measures which player on the team is most likely to turn the ball over. For enthusiasts and fans, knowing the turnover ratio for specific players can be a valuable piece of trivia. For coaches and other professionals involved in basketball, it can be used as an assessment point for improving the team’s performance. Here’s how you can solve for the turnover ratio in basketball.

Narrow down the player. Begin by narrowing down the number of players whose turnover ratio you want to compute for. It will be almost impossible to get the turnover ratio for all players, which means that you have to focus on just a few. Make sure, however, that you have at least two players in mind, so that you will be able to make comparisons. At the same time, you also need to determine the time frame for the sample that you are going to take of the ratio. You can have a single game as the time frame, or a season. You can even make a turnover ratio analysis of a player’s career, which will give more accurate results since you are covering the entire career span of the athlete.

Find the stats. Next, you will need to have several data at the ready. These include the field goals attempted, the field goals made, the free throws made, the assists, and the turnovers. Keep in mind that these data should come from the time frame that you have chosen. In other words, if you are going to analyze a player within a specific season, all of the data should come only form that season. If you are going to analyze the career of a player, then you should include all of the games that the athlete has played professionally.

Multiply. Next, take the number of attempted free throws and then multiply this value with the number 0.44. Combine this with the total field goal that has been attempted.

Possession total. The number you have just derived will then be used to compute for the possession total, which can be determined by adding the number from the previous step to the total turnovers and assists that the player has made within the time frame in question.

Multiply. Once this is done, you will need to multiply by one hundred the total turnovers. The resulting figure should then be divided by the sum of all possessions that has been made by the particular player. This will constitute your turnover ratio for the player that you are analyzing. As a rule, the number is usually rounded out to the tenth of the nearest percentage.

You can follow the same procedure for other players so that you can create comparisons between one team and another. Keep in mind, however, that the comparisons should also be based on the same time frame. This means that if you analyzed a given player’s turnover ratio for a season, it should also be compared to player whose turnover ratio is a season in length.

09 Earnings Call Transcript,
http://www.eco-liner.it/?p=14678

(Operator Instructions) Welcome to the Abercrombie Fitch Fourth Quarter Earnings Results Conference Call,
http://news.doddleme.com/. At this time I would like to turn the conference over to the Chief Financial Officer Mr. Jonathan Ramsden.

Welcome to our Fourth Quarter Earnings Call. Earlier this morning we released our fourth quarter sales and earnings,
http://www.dynaflow.com/, balance sheet, income statement and an updated financial history. Please feel free to reference these materials which are available on our website.

Before we begin I remind you that any forward looking statements we may make today are subject to the safe harbor statement found in our SEC filings. Today’s earnings call will be limited to one hour. We will begin the call with a few brief remarks from Mike Jeffries,
http://www.julieshoplingerie.com/post-nasal-drip-and-allergies.html, followed by a review of the financial performance for the quarter from Brian Logan and myself. After our prepared comments we will be available to take your questions for as long as time permits. Please limit yourself to one question so that we can speak with any many callers as possible.

We believe the fourth quarter 2008 will go down in history as one of the biggest retail nightmares. It certainly will for me. We saw malls dominated by promotional activity, consumers who continued to show reluctance to spend, especially for premium brands and unprecedented volatility in the economy. In this context,
http://www.tonycrispincarpentry.co.uk/2015/11/how-to-know-what-size-fitted-cap-to-wear/, particularly given our position as an aspirational brand we are satisfied with our results for the quarter.

We reacted to the environment by cutting back on expenses. We used mark downs to clear through seasonal inventory. We reduced capital expenditures by scaling back on our domestic expansion and ended with a strong cash position. Most importantly, we executed our strategy in a way that enabled us to protect our brands.

As a result of these actions, comparable store sales,
http://books.lohudblogs.com/?p=1823, ending inventory levels, and our earnings per share,
http://www.jokesz.com/2015/11/shirt-for-easy-packing/, excluding the effect of one time items, were favorable to the guidance we provided in November. Jonathan and Brian will provide more information on our financial results in a moment.

As we look toward 2009 I want to make a number of points about how we are going to manage our business,
http://blog.shangani.co.uk/.

1) We’re going to protect the brands,
http://www.manoteises.lt/?p=8699.

2) We’re going to preserve cash,
http://gabriel.cetac.se/how-to-fade-t/.

3) We’re going to push international growth,
http://www.hotindienews.com/?p=46909.

All of this in a seasoned disciplined and controlled way,
http://kosmos2012.hu-berlin.de/usuario-discusi/.

First,
http://technitya.com/1960s-fun-lovin-criminals/, we remain committed to protecting our brands, the cornerstone of a successful and profitable business model and therefore vital to long term shareholder value. Our commitment to providing trend right,
http://www.tonycrispincarpentry.co.uk/2015/11/media-musings-blog-archive-reporting-on-qatar-and-the-2022-fifa-world-cup-corruption-scandal/, high quality merchandise has never been stronger than it is today. We will continue to push forward on improved quality even as others remove quality from their product. We constantly obsess about discovering what is next and will continue to improve on our ability to offer a compelling product assortment.

Second, we will preserve cash. We remain committed to managing our operating expenses. We have already undertaken a number of cost saving initiatives and will continue to look for additional opportunities. These efforts are directed toward insuring we are operating in the most efficient and effective manner. We will continue to be mindful of our capital expenditures and manage them for the seasoned and disciplined approach.

Lastly, we continued to be encouraged with the results of our international expansion and are moving forward with our plans to bring our brands to the rest of the world. The Abercrombie Fitch flagship performance continues to be phenomenal. We anxiously await the opening of additional flagships in the second half of 2009 and the Hollister SoHo flagship this summer.

The Hollister UK mall based stores continue to outperform our expectations and we believe we have opportunity to grow that concept this year. We will continue to approach our international expansion with the discipline that the current environment requires and we’ll proceed at a pace with which we feel comfortable. Having said all of this,
http://thebluewatergroup.com.au/2015/11/100-things-to-do-this-summer-in-cleveland/, we will continue to focus on our long term objectives while seeking to maintain flexibility to respond to market conditions as we clearly demonstrated in the fourth quarter.

I want to tell you that during this time of unprecedented turmoil I am completely confident in our approach and our ability to manage and control this business. Our brands are some of the most sought after in all of retail, we have one of the strongest balance sheets in the industry and the passion and energy of the ANF associates is unmatched. With these things in mind we will continue to strengthen our brands and be well positioned in more promising times.

With that I will hand the call back to Jonathan but will be available to answer your questions later,
http://vorticedance.com/?p=9156.

While the current environment is proving to be extremely volatile, as Mike said,
http://www.julieshoplingerie.com/how-to-be-a-good-little-league-baseball-coach.html, we’re satisfied with our ability to manage the business through the past quarter and provide results slightly above estimates provided in November,
http://toppmotet.se/?p=15930, excluding the effect of the impairment and tax charges.

Net sales for the quarter decreased to $998 million, our total comparable stores decline of 25% was slightly better than we had anticipated driven by the combination of stronger post Christmas business,
http://www.mmi-groupe.tn/?p=4407, a trend that has increased in recent years and season ending clearance mark downs. Our gross profit rate in the fourth quarter was 64.4% down 280 basis points from last year as a result of higher mark down rate.

We implemented cost reductions during the quarter which resulted in total operating expenses excluding the asset impairment charge in line with 2007. Excluding the asset impairment and tax charges net income per diluted share was $1,
http://www.sysnatura.com/budget-fixie-bikes-for-sale/.10 and somewhat above the high end of the range we provided in November,
http://colespeace.com/.

As we move forward into 2009 from a financial standpoint we will be focusing on the following; firstly, IMU and gross margin. Secondly,
http://www.dynaflow.com/, continuing with the rigorous review of all of our operating expenses both to achieve absolute expense reductions and to have a more flexible cost base. These efforts will be ongoing in 2009 and beyond. Thirdly, restoring our historical alignment of inventory with sales.

Lastly,
http://skoly.disod.cz/?p=494, as we execute new deals in connection with our international expansion we want to ensure we are getting the best deals we possibly can taking advantage of the strength of our brands,
http://unions-whoswho.eu/post-swimmers-learn-from-top-sport-stars-in-pool.html, very strong initial reaction to our openings in the UK and favorable conditions from a real estate perspective. In other words, our focus is going to be on getting the best possible deals done rather than on maximizing the number of deals. In all of the above we’re going to take a conservative view with market conditions and not rely on a strong economic recovery to restore our operating margin.

Coming on to our specific plans for new store openings in 2009,
http://history.upd.edu.ph/news/heart-rate-during-swimming/, our store growth for the year will be focused on international opportunities. Based on current firm lease commitments we expect total capital expenditures to be in the range of $165 to $175 million including $45 to $50 million for IT, distribution center and home office projects,
http://www.bshearing.com/???/3886/, and $120 to $125 million related to new stores, store refreshes and remodels.

Domestically, in addition to the Hollister flagship in SoHo we have firm commitments to open nine stores in 2009. These commitments include two Abercrombie stores, four Hollister stores, two Gilly Hicks stores, one outlet store. Internationally we have existing firm commitments to open two mall based UK Hollister stores in addition to the three already opened and one Canadian Abercrombie store.

Due to the success of introducing Hollister in the UK we are in active discussions with regard to additional store openings in Europe. Our current best estimate is that we will open approximately 10 additional stores by the end of 2009,
http://www.coolblogtricks.net/. We remain on track to open Abercrombie Fitch and Abercrombie flagships in Milan in November and an Abercrombie Fitch flagship in Tokyo in December. At this point we expect that the A flagship in Copenhagen and the Abercrombie flagship in New York will not open until 2010,
http://blog.shangani.co.uk/.

With regard to operating expenses, as we have previously stated we have implemented a significant number of cost reduction initiatives in both stores and the home office. With regard to MG specifically we are confident that these initiatives will result in expenses below 2008 levels. These expense reduction efforts will be ongoing and will be responsive to the overall sales trend of the business.

We expect that a difficult selling environment will persist throughout 2009 due to the current economic conditions and in particular their impact on sales trends we believe that providing specific EPS guidance at this point would be to borrow a phrase from a fellow retailer, "An exercise in false precision." We will continue to provide monthly sales reports as in the past.

Now to Brian who will provide the more detailed update on our fourth quarter financial performance.

Fiscal 2008 fourth quarter net sales for the 13 weeks ended January 31, 2009,
http://blog.doethicalbusiness.com/?p=32811, decreased 19% to $998 million from $1.23 billion for the 13 weeks ended February 2, 2008. Fourth quarter direct to consumer net sales decreased 12% to $95.1 million. Total company comparable store sales decreased 25%,
http://vorticedance.com/?p=9156, average transaction value per store decreased 25% and average transaction value decreased 1% compared to last year.

Sunday Puzzle Archive

From a new puzzle book by Serhiy Grabarchuk, The New Puzzle Classics: Put ten dots on a piece of paper, in the form of a ten pip domino. It will look the same as a pair of dice with fives on them side by side. You can number the top row of dots one to four; the two middle dots five and six; and the bottom row of dots seven and ten. Now, the object is to draw a closed loop of four consecutive straight lines, going through each of the dots once. Draw a straight line. From the end of that, draw another straight line. From the end of that draw a third straight line, and from the end of that draw one more straight line that returns to your starting point. Every dot must be crossed once. Can you do it? Your solution can give the number of the dots in each of your four lines.

THE ANSWER: Set the domino horizontally so four pips are aligned across the top, two pips are aligned in the middle, and the four last pips are aligned on the bottom. And you start by drawing a horizontal line, left to right, through the top four pips. The tricky part is to begin this line to the left of the first pip and end it to the right of the fourth pip. Next you draw a slanting line diagonally down thru the second pip of the middle row, ending to the left of the bottom row of pips. Next you draw a horizontal line across the bottom four pips, extending the line out pass the last one. Finally, you would draw a slanting line diagonally up thru the first pip in the middle row, ending at your point. { 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10 6 1}

American Independent News Network

The American Independent News Network, formerly The Center for Independent Media until January 2010,[1] is an American 501(c)(3) non profit[2] that provides state based reporting from a liberal perspective.[3] Founded in May 2006, the group has a stated mission of funding websites that report news from an independent, investigative perspective. The organization looked to develop internet based local reporting in order to improve the level of public discourse.[1] It operates a news network which consists of state based daily news sites The Colorado Independent, The Florida Independent, The Iowa Independent, The Michigan Messenger, The Minnesota Independent, The New Mexico Independent, and The Washington Independent.

The network states that its mission is to "investigate and disseminate news that impacts public debate and advances the common good."[1]

The organization was founded as The Center for Independent Media in April 2006 by David S. Bennahum, a former journalist with Wired. Its inaugural venture was a New Journalist Pilot Program whose aim was "to strengthen the network of progressive blogs on a state by state basis," providing short term financial support for qualified applicants, while being trained.

The purpose of the organization expanded to creating and supporting a network of independent online news organizations. As of August 2010Colorado Confidential (now The Colorado Independent) was the first to launch, in May 2006, followed in August by The Minnesota Monitor, now the Minnesota Independent. Iowa Independent and Michigan Messenger debuted in 2007. The Washington Bureau and The Washington Independent were launched in January 2008, followed by The New Mexico Independent in April 2008. In May 2010, The Florida Independent was established.[7]

In January 2010, the Center for Independent Media changed its name to The American Independent News Network to "more accurately reflect the true nature of [its] work as an online news network."[1]

In November, 2010, inadequate funding led to an announced plan to consolidate the AINN site with the Washington Independent one,[8] though in 2011 both sites, plus the seven regional sites, continued operational.

In July, 2011, the Pew Foundation’s Project for Excellence in Journalism was reported to have found that, among other non profit news outlets, "the liberal American Independent News Network [doesn’t] . reveal much about who’s paying their bills, and [its] work skews clearly in one direction, both in the topics [it covers] and the content of individual stories".[9]

On November 17, 2011, Lynda Waddington of The Iowa Independent wrote that The Michigan Messenger and The Minnesota Independent had been closed down and that The Iowa Independent could soon follow. There have been no new entries to the site since that date. In May 2007, Jason Bane and other staff members at The Colorado Confidential were recognized for coverage of online breaking news by the Society of Professional Journalists. The Colorado Confidential was also recognized for coverage of the Colorado State House by the Association of Capitol Reporters and Editors. The Minnesota Independent received prizes in the categories of Best Online News Story, Best Independent Newsroom Blog, and Best Independent News Site from the Society of Professional Journalists in Minnesota. The Michigan Messenger’s reporter Eartha Jane Melzer received Honorable Mention from the National Press Club’s Sandy Hume Award for Excellence in Political Journalism.[14]

In 2009, the Associations of State Capitol Reporters and Editors honored The New Mexico Independent and The Iowa Independent with first place prizes for Single Reporting and Beat Reporting, respectively. The Society of Professional Journalists in Washington, DC honored The Washington Independent’s finance reporter Mary Kane with first prize for Daily Newspaper Feature and second prize for Daily Newspaper Business Reporting. In Minnesota, the Society of Professional Journalists honored The Minnesota Independent with first place wins in the categories of Best Single News Story, Best Use of Multimedia, Best Use of Video, and Best Independent News Blog, in addition to four other prizes.[14]

In 2010, the Society of Professional Journalists in Minnesota awarded The Minnesota Independent three times: Birkey received first prize for Best Continuing Coverage (Online), Kathy Easthagen received first prize for Best Spot News Photo, and the site received second prize for Best Web Site.[15][16]

Reporters with The American Independent News Network have won over 40 prizes for excellence in journalism. Spencer Ackerman, who has written for The New Republic and Talking Points Memo writes for The Washington Independent. John Tomasic previously edited The Huffington Post’s "Off the Bus" and is the current editor of The Colorado Independent.

Alumni of the American Independent News Network include David Weigel, formerly with The Washington Independent, is a blogger for Slate; Mike Lillis, formerly with The Washington Independent, is now writing for The Hill; and Wendy Norris, formerly the editor of The Colorado Independent, is now the editor and publisher of Western Citizen.

A Jumpstart on Life

Now I can walk into a crowded room and not have my eyes glued to the floor. People following the Weight Watchers plan can expect to lose 1 2 pounds per week.

Cecelia lost weight with a prior Weight Watchers program and is continuing with PointsPlus. With a family history of diabetes and heart disease, 20 year old Cecelia really wanted to get healthy. Being a young woman she also felt like she was living life on the sidelines. That’s when she subscribed to Weight Watchers Online and began following the Plan.

I knew that fad diets didn’t work and I’d always thought of Weight Watchers as a great alternative. Being a student and having a crazy schedule, I knew the online Plan would fit really well into my lifestyle. After subscribing to Weight Watchers Online I realized I could fit it into my schedule whenever it was convenient. I had all the tools I needed at my fingertips 24/7!

I also really loved that I could track my weight at home. That was really key for me.

Being able to calculate and track my food on my BlackBerry and iPod Touch makes grocery shopping and eating out with friends a piece of cake. The restaurant guides and Message Boards give me all the advice I need if any questions come up. I’m always on the go, so being able to access my Tracker, the cheat sheets and recipes at all hours is wonderful!

I knew I’d reach my goal when I survived Christmas dinner with my family and still lost weight. It just takes planning. I prepared healthy dishes and still got everything I wanted even gingerbread men! I stopped thinking, "I can’t eat this or that." I can eat anything as long as I make healthier choices the rest of the day.

I knew I had to change my life in order to really enjoy it. I kept envisioning the thinner, happier me and before I knew it, she was who I saw in the mirror. I’ve inspired my whole family and I have four friends who have all joined Weight Watchers after seeing my success.

I’m no longer the invisible girl! I love my confidence and self esteem. Now I can walk into a crowded room and not have my eyes glued to the floor. Now that the weight is off I’m super confident. I’ve even decided to study abroad for a semester in London something I would have never done before subscribing to Weight Watchers Online. I couldn’t be happier!

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
