What will the recent scandal mean for Boohoo shares?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Karl Loomes | Thursday, 30th July, 2020 | More on: BOO Image source: Getty Images. Enter Your Email Address Online fashion retailer Boohoo (LSE: BOO) has had a bad month. Starting with concerns over poor working conditions related to coronavirus, it quickly emerged things could be even worse. According to the Sunday Times, factories in its supply chain could be paying workers as little as £3.50 an hour.Understandably, Boohoo shares are currently down more than 30% this month. Though scandals can often be short lived and quickly recovered from, I can foresee a few potential problems for Boohoo shares.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The unknown, unknownMy colleague G A Chester quotes Warren Buffett, saying “You see a cockroach in your kitchen; as the days go by, you meet his relatives”. I like this analogy, and unfortunately it is usually true.This may be the first problem to emerge regarding Boohoo’s supply chain. If the company was unaware of this issue, then it is more than likely unaware of others. What’s more, now everybody will be looking.Aside from the hit to its reputation, which can be damaging (especially for modern, fashionable brands), it may very well have yet unknown direct financial costs. The company will have to find other suppliers.It will also have to monitor its production facilities more. It is highly likely that Boohoo will need to spend more to avoid a repeat of this situation. This is something it should have been doing all along, but it will still likely hit its profits to one extent or another.Of course another option would be to move its production out of the UK altogether. But moving to a country with lower labour costs, would involve some slow downs of production and higher transportation costs.Investor confidence in Boohoo sharesAn even greater problem, however, may be investors selling their Boohoo shares. Earlier this month, Standard Life Aberdeen – one of Boohoo’s biggest shareholders – sold almost all of its stock because of the allegations. Meanwhile Next, ASOS, and Zalando all dropped Boohoo lines from their websites while they await the company’s response.Boohoo may be able to recover its reputation if it handles this well, but big investors selling their stock and losing its different selling avenues could have far more lasting damage.Ready to buy?My fellow Fool Edward Shelton points out some insider buying of Boohoo shares recently. Like him, I usually see this as a bullish sign. For me though, I have to keep going back to Warren Buffett’s cockroach problem. I suspect we may still see more problems emerging before things start to turn around.I’m sure there is potential for this sell off to offer a buying opportunity, but I am not convinced that Boohoo was as strong as I would have liked even prior to this news. I think there is some way to go yet before the Boohoo share price really begins to make gains. What will the recent scandal mean for Boohoo shares?

Buffalo celebrates: Stonewall and local LGBTQ2S+ movement turn 50

first_imgThis year marks 50 years since the legendary Stonewall Rebellion and also 50 years since the birth of Buffalo’s organized LGBTQ2S+ movement.In celebration, the Buffalo-Niagara Falls LGBTQ History Project sponsored a “Gay Liberation Reunion Panel” on June 27. Five of the many founders of the local Buffalo movement explained, to a standing-room-only crowd of over 100 people, what life was like for them in the city in the early 1970s. Buffalo’s Mattachine Society at the Gay Liberation March in Albany, N.Y., in 1971.Panelists included Bill Gardner, Greg Bodekor, Don Licht and Rodney Hensel, now a LGBTQ2S+ senior issues activist; Madeline D. Davis, co-author of the history of the Buffalo lesbian community, “Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold”; and Marge Maloney, an active member of Workers World Party since 1969.The panel emphasized that the LGBTQ2S+ movement in Buffalo was different from those in bigger cities like Los Angeles and New York, primarily due to Buffalo being a midsize, working-class, blue-collar city, which had a closely linked, complex and thriving, if closeted, community. The panelists recounted the founding in the late 1960s of the Mattachine Society of the Niagara Frontier and the Sisters of Sappho, as well as the opening of what was the third largest LGBTQ2S+ center in the country. This space provided a social area for people to meet and hang out, as well as providing a suicide hot line, counseling service and activities. The Fifth Freedom, an early LGBTQ2S+ newspaper, was published in Buffalo for the Western New York region from 1970 into the early 1980s.Members of the audience asked: “What prompted this community to be so bold?” The answer was: “We were tired of being harassed, beat up and arrested by the cops and other anti-gay people.” In response to the repression, the community fought back by founding its own organizations. That was a very brave thing to do at that time because if anyone was arrested, not only their names but their home addresses were published in local newspapers. Panel members stressed that the struggles in Buffalo, as elsewhere, were linked to and inspired by the parallel women’s liberation movement, the Black and Latinx movements, and other struggles for liberation taking place during the same years, including the anti-war movement. In the discussion, it was mentioned that Workers World Party was the only left party to have an active lesbian and gay caucus. There was so much more that needed to be said about the history of justice struggles in Buffalo, but the panel ran out of time. However, in a separate June 27 interview in the Qween City blog, WWP comrade Marge Maloney filled out some of the connections among struggles. Maloney, a lifelong workers’ and LGBTQ2S+ rights activist, was born in 1947 on the West Side of Buffalo to an Irish-Catholic working-class family.She noted in the interview: “It was ‘69 when I joined the anti-war movement, and it just sort of flowed from my ideas about struggle and oppression. It was intersectionality before it had a word.“I was beginning to have an inkling that I was destined to struggle, and so I joined Workers World Party, because they were, at the time, the only socialist party to have both a women’s caucus and a lesbian and gay caucus, both fully functional. I could be active in the gay community, and I could be active in the workers’ struggles. It just sort of worked beautifully.”Maloney also gave more recent liberation history, recounting the joining of pro-choice and LGBTQ2S+ communities in the early 1990s to form Buffalo United for Choice, when anti-abortion forces descended on the city. She noted that the earlier gay liberation struggle built the foundation for community self-defense when anti-abortion forces came back to Buffalo in 1999 and targeted both women’s clinics and the LGBTQ2S+ community. Rainbow Peacekeepers, a group of about 100 people, came together to send groups of people out on the weekends to defend LGBTQ2S+ bars and clubs threatened by right-wing bigots.In a video link at the Qween City blog, Mahoney recounts how participating in both those mobilizations was another LGBTQ2S+ activist and WWP comrade, Leslie Feinberg, who grew up and came out in Buffalo’s gay community, and whose now-classic trans novel “Stone Butch Blues” was set in the city. Feinberg’s ground-breaking Marxist history of transgender oppression and struggle, “Transgender Warriors” (1996), details Feinberg’s coming to political consciousness and activism within the dynamic movements in Buffalo.“Stone Butch Blues” is now available as a free download at lesliefeinberg.net.

The said decision was made while considering the representation moved by Mr Akhil Hasija, seeking appropriate rules and regulations to ensure the data protection of attorney-client communication which is taking place through video-conferencing apps in light of COVID19. The said representation was taken up in light of the order passed by the Delhi High Court on 20/07/20, in the matter of Akhil Hasija v. Bar Council of India, whereby the concerned authorities were directed to consider the prayers made in the writ petition as a representation and deal with the same in accordance with law. In the said writ petition, Mr Hasija had asked for the formation of an Expert Committee to make appropriate rules/amendments for the protection of privileged communication between lawyers and their clients under Section 126 and 127 of the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, while using third-party applications for conducting video conferencing/virtual meetings. While considering the suggestions made in the representation, the Bar Council of India noted that any regulation required to protect attorney-client communication on third party apps can only be effectuated by bringing an amendment to the Indian Evidence Act and the Information Technology Act. The BCI further noted that owing to the concerns of data protection and communication confidentiality, advocates shall use WhatsApp for such having privileged communication with their clients till the time the Central Government specifies a list of apps which would ensure such protection. It further said: ‘Advocates visiting their clients in jails/lockups are advised to buy an extra handset which can be provided while visiting the clients in jail and thereafter the same can be taken back sanitised and used for another client.’Click Here To Download Minutes[Read Minutes] Next Storylast_img read more

In appeal, the High Court observed that the subsequent purchasers have got only the right to defend their purchase on the premise that they have no prior knowledge of the agreement of sale with the plaintiff.  Though they are necessary parties to the suit, since any decree obtained by the plaintiff would be binding on the subsequent purchasers, the plea that the plaintiff must always be ready and willing to perform his part of the contract must be available only to the vendor or his legal representatives, but not to the subsequent purchasers, it was held by the High court relying on Jugraj Singh vs. Labh Singh  [(1995) 2 SCC 31].The Apex Court bench comprising Justices UU Lalit, Indira Banerjee and KM Joseph noted that the principles laid down in the judgment in Jugraj Singh were not approved in Ram Awadh (Dead) vs.Achhaibar Dubey [(2000) 2 SCC428]. It took  note of the following observations made in Ram Awadh:”The obligation imposed by Section 16 is upon the court not to grant specific performance to a plaintiff who has not met the requirements of clauses (a), (b) and (c) thereof. A court may not, therefore, grant to a plaintiff who has failed to aver and to prove that he has performed or has always been ready and willing to perform his part of the agreement the specific performance whereof he seeks. There is, therefore, no question of the plea being available to one defendant and not to another. It is open to any defendant to contend and establish that he mandatory requirement of Section 16(c) has not been complied with and it is for the court to determine whether it has or has not been complied with and, depending upon its conclusion, decree or decline to decree the suit. We are of the view that the decision in Jugraj Singh case [(1995) 2 SCC 31] is erroneous.”In this case, the court noted that the High Court went on the footing that it was not open to the subsequent purchaser to raise any submissions on the issue of readiness and willingness. Therefore, the High Court judgment was set aside and the matter was remitted to it for fresh consideration on merits.CASE: KADUPUGOTLA VARALAKSHMI vs. VUDAGIRI VENKATA RAO CORAM:  Justices UU Lalit, Indira Banerjee and KM Joseph COUNSEL: Sr. Adv A.

Boulder mass shooting victims remembered, including police officer, future grandpa

first_imgChet Strange/Getty ImagesBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(BOULDER, Co.) — They were community residents going about their normal routine of shopping at a grocery store, unaware that it would be the last act of their lives.Among the victims were a 25-year-old grocery store worker who was raised her by grandparents to be strong and independent and a 61-year-old man who will never be able to see or hold his expectant grandchild.The names of the nine civilians and one police officer killed in Monday’s mass shooting at the King Soopers store in Boulder, Colorado, were released on Tuesday, just hours after the last body was removed from the supermarket.“I don’t know all the details at this time. I’ve spoken to some of their families, and I can just tell you that they’re heartbroken and this is the worst call you could ever receive as a family member,” Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said at a news conference.Among those fatally shot was Officer Eric Talley, 51, a father of seven, who was the first officer to respond to the store when 911 calls about the shooting came in. Herold said Talley was shot when he rushed into the store to save lives and engaged the suspect in a gunfight.“I can tell you that he’s a very kind man. He didn’t have to go into policing,” Herold said of Talley, who joined the police force at the age of 40. “He had a profession before this, but he felt a higher calling. And he loved this community, and he’s everything that policing deserves and needs. He cared about this community, he cared about the Boulder Police Department. He cared about his family, and he was willing to die to protect others.”Herold said she recently had Talley and his family in her office to present one of Talley’s sons with an award for saving the life of his little brother.“Officer Talley taught CPR. He taught his family CPR. And one of his sons’ swallowed a quarter, and because Officer Talley taught his children CPR, one of his sons was able to save the little boy’s life,” Herold said.At the White House, President Joe Biden praised the “exceptional bravery” of Talley and expressed his and first lady Jill Biden’s “deepest condolences” to his family.“When he pinned on the badge yesterday morning, he didn’t know what the day would bring,” Biden said of Talley. “He thought he’d be coming home to his wife and seven children, but when the moment the act came, Officer Talley did not hesitate in his duty, making the ultimate sacrifice in his effort to save lives. That’s the definition of an American hero.”Her voice choking with emotion, Herold read the names of the other nine victims, the youngest 20 and the oldest 65.— Denny Stong, 20— Neven Stanisic, 23— Rikki Olds, 25— Tralona Bartkowiak, 49— Teri Leiker, 51— Suzanne Fountain, 59— Kevin Mahoney, 61— Lynn Murray, 62— Jody Waters, 65Rikki Old’s uncle, Robert Olds, told ABC News on Tuesday that his niece was a “strong, independent” woman who had worked as a manager at the grocery store for six years.“She was bubbly. She was the light of the room,” Robert Olds said. “Her giggle, her laugh would just bring you up to her level. You know what I mean? She was so loved, and she will be so missed. We are heartbroken and saddened and devastated.”He said his family was notified around 3 a.m. Tuesday that his niece was among the deceased.“We called the police, we called hospitals, no one had information,” he said of what he and his relatives did before they received the grim news. “We sat on the fence for 13 hours. There’s got to be a better way. My niece is lying on the concrete floor of that … store by herself.”Robert Olds said his niece was raised by his parents, Rikki Olds’ grandparents.“My dad, Richard Olds, instilled in Rikki that you need to be strong, you need to do it on your own. It’s not about anyone else, it’s about you. Don’t depend on anyone else. Depend on yourself,” Robert Olds said, adding that his father passed away six years ago. “My mom raised her as well, and she is still alive. She knows, and she is devastated. This is not supposed to happen that way.”Kevin Mahoney’s daughter, Erika Mahoney, posted photos on Twitter of her father walking her down the aisle at her wedding last summer. She wrote that she is now pregnant.“I know he wants me to be strong for his granddaughter,” Erika Mahoney wrote. “My dad represents all things Love.”Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said the “senseless tragedy” hit close to home. He said he lives in the community and has shopped at the King Soopers store.“My heart aches today, and I think all of ours does as Coloradans, as Americans, for this senseless tragedy, the loss of life,” Polis said at the news conference.Speaking of the victims, Polis said they were people of all ages “who started their day with a cup of coffee or reading the morning paper, perhaps getting their kids ready and putting on a winter coat to go out.”“None of them expected that this would be their last day here on the planet,” Polis said.“A simple run for milk and eggs, you know, getting ready to shop,” he said. “Going in the regular way we all lead our lives, something that we can all identify with, led to a complete tragedy here.”Biden ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at the White House for the second time in a week. Last week, the president had flags lowered to half-staff in honor of the eight Georgia spa shooting victims, an order that expired at sunset on Monday.“Jill and I are devastated, and I just can’t imagine how the families are feeling, the victims whose futures were stolen from them, from their families, loved ones, who now have to struggle to go on and make sense of what’s happened,” Biden said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
