The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The year 2021 has been a good start for stock investors in the UK, with the FTSE 100 index rising 4.2% year-to-date at the time of writing. Tesco (LSE: TSCO) shares have not disappointed investors, as it rose 4.8% in the same period.Tesco’s sales are encouragingTesco released its Q3 and Christmas trading statement today. Revenue grew by 7.0% year-on-year to £19.9bn. Comparable sales growth was 5.7% for the third quarter and 5.4% for the 19 weeks including the Christmas trading period.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…UK sales grew by 7.6% y-o-y to £14.7bn, primarily helped by the strong growth in all formats, channels, and categories. The lockdown also encouraged more customers to do online shopping, which equated to approximately £1bn in extra sales over the 19-week period. Large store sales were also strong as customers favoured less frequent shopping trips.Tesco started the Aldi Price Match in March 2020 and has received a positive response from its customers. Another important initiative was the starting of Clubcard Prices in September. Its Clubcard app has over two million active users.Tesco completed the £8.2bn sale of its Asian businesses in Thailand and Malaysia on 18 December 2020. It intends to pay out the proceeds through a special dividend and share consolidation of £5bn. It also made a one-off contribution of £2.5bn to the Tesco Pension Scheme.The company is also confident that its good relationships with its suppliers will enable it to maintain strong levels of availability of supplies in the initial Brexit transition period.Tesco maintained its guidance for 2020-21 financial year to be unchanged. Its retail operating profit is expected to be at the same level as in 2019-20. However, it excluded the impact from the repayment of £535m in business rates relief paid in December.The Tesco Bank will be a drag to the company’s profits as it expects to report a loss between £175m to £200m for the financial year. It also increased its annual Covid-19 related costs to £810m, an increase of £85m from the previous estimate.Macro environmentAccording to market research firm Kantar, British shoppers spent a whooping £11.7bn on groceries in the month of December 2020. This is a huge relief to the retail sector, overcoming the fears of lost sales due to the lockdown. Digital orders accounted for 12.6% of grocery spend during December when compared with 7.4% in December 2019. The closure of bars, restaurants, and cafés channelled the flow of money into retail grocery stores.The company is facing competition from online retailers and also from big retail players like Lidl, Aldi, Asda, Sainsbury’s, and Morrisons. The lockdown might also have a negative impact on the economy in the medium term.Final wordsTesco shares are currently trading at a forward P/E ratio of 13.30, which is not very cheap for me to consider them a value buy. However, I would like to include the company’s shares in my watch list as it has a stable balance sheet. The sale of businesses in Asia will further strengthen its balance sheet. Its large size will also help to withstand any downturns better than other smaller players, I believe, too. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Creative writing contest marks 80 years of awards

first_img A guide to designing your graduation cap Riley Knighthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/riley-knight/ printThe TCU English Department is celebrating a milestone in this year’s Creative Writing Contest.Members of the department are celebrating the contest’s 80th anniversary this year. The contest has grown and evolved immensely since its humble beginning in 1936.The annual contest originated with the Woman’s Wednesday Club in Fort Worth. The club, which is a women’s group that supports writing and the arts, initiated the first two awards 80 years ago.The club still sponsors awards today.“The club had past winners come and read a little bit from their work,” said Dr. Charlotte Hogg, an associate professor in the English Department. “They are wonderfully generous but also really interested.”The department will award $3,500 to the 2016 winners. The money comes from a range of sponsors and individual donors.Hogg said some donors sponsor awards in memory of a loved one, while other sponsors donate simply to promote the arts.The contest is open to TCU students and alumni and currently has 19 individual categories. A winner is picked for each category.The range of categories has extended the contest to all types of writers. Satire, drama, multimedia and Texas writing are just a few of the diverse categories.“When it first started, it was mostly just English majors who submitted,” said Lynn Herrera, assistant to the dean of the John V. Roach Honors College. “I’m excited about the growth because it’s not just creative writing that we are celebrating, but a range of writing styles.”Herrera managed the contest for over four years and designed the cover of the online publication, which publishes the winning essays from each category.The contest’s submission pool has steadily increased throughout the years. Matthew Pitt, chair of the Creative Writing Committee, said the contest received 119 submissions in 2013. In 2014, that number jumped to 218, he said.Last year, there were 315 submissions from seven different TCU colleges and 36 different majors.A single judge is assigned to each category and is given parameters for each award. Faculty, published writers and TCU alumni make up the judges.In terms of submissions, Hogg said the department has seen it all.“I’m always surprised with how revealing people will be when they know stuff will be published in the online publication,” Hogg said. “People seem to have no qualms about sharing very personal information.”The winners will be announced during a ceremony on April 19 in the Dee J.

Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate pieces and add the liqueur.

Therefore, the move is manifestly arbitrary, illegal and thus unconstitutional being hit by Article 14 of the Constitution,” the students wrote. Through the impugned notification, the University administration had intimated that it will start online sessions for the current academic year from 6th July 2020. To facilitate the same, the students have been asked to submit their full fees by August 5, 2020. The students have argued that the impugned notification was issued without keeping into due consideration the “disproportionate impact” the lockdown has had on the livelihood of their families. It is stated that the University’s claim that online teaching will incur MORE cost is “illogical, irrational and manifestly arbitrary.” It is submitted, “the prevalent situation indubitably warrants from the university to arrange and provide for special considerations in these unprecedented times. Appropriate relaxations are a bare minimum threshold that the University should have ideally met without any external calling.” The students have pointed out that as per Rule 34A of Academic Regulations of the University, the academic fees has to be decided by the Director General in consultation with the Board of Governors. However, per the official website of the University, “the last meeting of the board was conducted on 28-09-2019. This proves that the university is unwilling to change its fee structure even in these uncertain times.” It is submitted that the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted underlying “gaps” in the education regulatory system, including the higher bargaining power that educational institutions exercise over its students. “A fair balance would provide that if there is any reduction of cost, there should also be a proportionate reduction in the fees. If the benefit of reduction is not shifted to the students, it would lead to colleges earning beyond the standard set by the law and thus, would be considered illegal,” the students stressed. Reliance is placed on Modern Dental College v. State of Madhya Pradesh, 2016 7 SCC 353, where the Supreme Court had held that a University cannot charge a fee that is beyond the purpose of fulfilling the object of education. The students have therefore urged the Court to ask the University to waive off a part of the fees being charged and accordingly refund the proportionate fee of those students who have already paid.

Women’s Reproductive Rights In India And Beyond

first_imgColumnsWomen’s Reproductive Rights In India And Beyond Nidhi Meena21 May 2021 8:59 AMShare This – xReproductive rights rest on the recognition of the basic right of all couples and individuals to decide freely and responsibly the number, spacing and timing of their children and to have the information and means to do so, and the rights to attain the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health. They also include the right of all to make decisions concerning reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence.”Reproductive and sexual health of an individual is an important aspect of human rights, with its roots in the right to health. It refers to physical, emotional, psychological and social well-being in relation to sexuality that includes control over fertility, protection from sexually transmitted diseases as well as protection from sexual coercion, stigma, censorship and violence, and the possibility of pleasurable and safe sexual experiences. The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines reproductive rights as follows:Advertisement In general terms, reproductive rights may include an individual’s right to plan a family, terminate a pregnancy, use contraceptives, learn about sex in public schools and gain access to reproductive health services. This article examines the reproductive rights of women in India, UK, UAE and Malaysia only and studies different aspects and legal frameworks in these nations. India Reproductive rights of individuals and couples in India can be located in laws and polices relating to heath, employment, education, provision of food and nutrition, and protection from gender-based violence. These fundamental rights are guaranteed under Part III of the Constitution of India, but the right to health or reproductive rights are not expressly recognised as fundamental rights. Advertisement On many occasions our Hon’ble Supreme Court has interpreted the right to health as an integral part to the right to life. In Suchita Srivastava and Another vs Chandigarh Administration, the Court held that reproductive autonomy is a dimension of personal liberty as guaranteed under Article-21: “It is important to recognise that reproductive choices can be exercised to procreate as well as to abstain from procreating. The crucial consideration is that a woman’s right to privacy, dignity and bodily integrity should be respected. This means that there should be no restriction whatsoever on the exercise of reproductive choices such as a woman’s right to refuse participation in sexual activity or alternatively the insistence on [the] use of contraceptive methods. Furthermore, women are also free to choose birth-control methods such as undergoing sterilisation procedures. Taken to their logical conclusion, reproductive rights include a woman’s entitlement to carry a pregnancy to its full term, to give birth and to subsequently raise children.”Advertisement Advertisement Several provisions under Part IV of the Constitution are also related to issues of health, which are not enforceable in any court, but create an obligation on the State to apply these principles in making laws and policies, such as Article- 39(e), 39(f), 42, 45 and 47. In the past, the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 (MTPA) regulated access to abortion, when and under what conditions it may be conducted and by whom. However, it has recently been replaced by the Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Act, 2021. Unless conducted as per by the MTPA, termination of pregnancy is considered to be an offence under the Indian Penal Code (IPC). There are other laws which include provisions related to child marriage, immoral trafficking, etc. which also deal with issues related directly or indirectly related to reproductive health of women. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement There are many schemes implemented by the government to address maternal health and related issues, like Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A), Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY), Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakaram (JSSK), Pradhan Mantri Surakshit Matritva Abhiyan (PMSMA), etc. which ensure that contraceptives, hygiene products, awareness are reaching from time to time and helping to some extent in reducing the number of women and girls who are facing challenges related to their health and other concerns. United KingdomThe Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Act 2003 (came into force in March 2004) was introduced against the practice of FGM in the UK and in other countries which are residents of UK. The Abortion Act 1967, under which women are able to access abortion services was criminalised in some areas such as Northern Ireland under the old laws. In October 2019, the UK Government’s new guidance on abortion in Northern Ireland states that no criminal charges can be brought against those who have had an abortion, or against doctors and others healthcare professionals who provide and assist in an abortion. The General Medical Services (GMS) Contract (came into force in April 2004) deals with contraceptive advice and care. For Sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, Government introduced the 48- hours target for testing and treatment and in 2005 the Medical Foundation for Aids and Sexual health published a set of ten sexual health standards to improve the quality of sexual health services. The Teenage Pregnancy Strategy is a cross-government programme aiming the under-18 conceptions and increase the participation of young parents in education and work. For confidentiality purpose in 2004, Government reinforced the right under-16 to confidential advice and treatment and in fact deemed them competent by law for decision-making. The Government started the roll-out programme for teachers as well for sex and relationship education. MalaysiaThe Constitution of Malaysia does not formally guarantee the right to health but gives the federal government an exclusive authority over legislative and regulatory matters relating to it. Currently Malaysia has no government policy or legislation particularly addressing the issue of reproductive health but Eighth Malaysia Plan objectives for women’s health including STIs, HIV/AIDS, nutrition, maternal and child health care, etc. such as the Safe Motherhood Initiative in 1989. For family planning government has formulated strategies related to it and services are provided by the Ministry of Health and the National Planning and Family Development Board (NPFDB). There are no legal provisions governing the use of contraception and generally not provided in the public health system. The principal source of law on abortion in Malaysia is the Penal Code Act 547 (revised 1997) under Section-312. The term abortion is not actually defined under law in Malaysia but accepts the legal definition of miscarriage from a 1955 Indian court case, In re Malayara Seethu, and in 2002 the National Fatwa Committee issued a setting forth the conditions for permissible abortion and follow the standardised procedure given in Clinical Practice Guidelines: Termination of Pregnancy only when it would result in detriment to the mental or physical health of the women with the confirmation of two doctors who can prove that. The Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 is there for STIs including HIV/AIDS but does not offer legal protections for the people living with it in case of discrimination. For adolescent reproductive health, the government established the Adolescent Health Program under Family Health Development Division of the Ministry of Health on 1995 and in 2001, introduced the National Adolescent Health Policy, which aims to promote the development towards their health and empowering them with the knowledge and skills to practice healthy behaviour. The Ministry of Education has also introduced the element of family health education to primary school children in physical and health education as school curriculum classes in 1994. FGM is practiced among some communities, and as the custom is largely cultural, there is no law or policy regulating it. UAE Abortion is illegal and criminalised under Article-340 of the federal penal code and even an intent is a criminal offence. It is allowed under some conditions only such as when a women’s life is in jeopardy/danger or if the unborn child has deformities that will prove fatal for future. The abortion must take place within 120 days of the pregnancy and must approved by an authority medical board. The rules related to abortion are strict in the area, marriage certificate is mandatory for avail the services in the both public and private hospitals. Childbirth can only take place in hospital. The Ministry of Health recommends all birth control pills only under its regulations but the morning after pills is banned. Sexual health education is not mandatory under laws though some private schools do teach sexual education at their own initiative. It is illegal to be sexually active unless one is married and local healthcare system is based on Islamic laws, sexuality and health are not usually taken into consideration and rarely become a part of healthcare campaigns. FGM is not illegal but it is prohibited in the state hospitals and clinics. According to the above-mentioned details and the data available on the different sites I have created below a table for a brief comparison between the nations specifically. India and UK have better laws and policies when it comes to sexual and reproductive rights of women than Malaysia and UAE. Laws in Malaysia and UAE are influenced by religion, which prohibits many practices like abortion and the unprogressive mentality perpetuates practices like FGM, due to which women in these areas face problems and have less say in their own health matters. Though we have observed that the government has taken different steps to provide good health and child care in these areas and achieved a positive outcome. On the other hand, I feel that India has good laws and regulations related to the issues of reproductive health and rights of women, but due to the lack of proper implementation does not show the desired results. There are different problems in different regions which restrict the women differently in their respective nations and together make a difficult world for them to live. I have seen implementation problem makes Indian women restricted, UK almost has every possible solution related to reproductive health but still somewhere lacks behind, Malaysia’s legal system itself confined their women and UAE’s rigid laws makes difficult for women and girls to in fact talk about the issues related to their own body and health.Criterion for ComparisonIndiaUKMalaysiaUAEInternational signatoryYesYesYesYesAbortion is legalYesYesYesNoLaw and policy related to abortionYesYesYesYesConsent of a woman for abortionYesYesPartiallyPartiallySchemes by Government related to promote sexual and reproductive healthYesYesYesYesNew initiatives by the Government to encourage the need for contraceptives YesYesYesYesIs FGM ban/illegal?NoYesNoNoSteps taken by the government related to FGMYesYesNoPartiallyRestricted Reproductive rightsNoNoPartiallyYesFrom the above discussion and the comparative analysis of the sexual and reproductive rights of women in India, UK, Malaysia and UAE, I conclude that there is a need to address this issue in each and every part of the world if we want to make and give a better life to our women and to our future generations as well. We have laws which are helping to reduce the issues related to the matter but we are yet to achieve the desired result. Women in each and every country have faced, and in fact are facing, problems such as domestic violence, female foeticide, etc. and reproductive health is one of the main concerns for them. Despite legal and policy frameworks guaranteeing these rights, women and girls around the world still continue to experience significant barriers to full enjoyment of their reproductive rights, including poor quality health services and denials of women’s and girl’s decision-making authority in our patriarchal society.
