Instead, Coupe will try to increase the non-food offer and possibly introduce some concessions. Management is loath to shrink, although we believe they could have taken the extra step.DARREN SHIRLEY | SHORE CAPITALDespite the greater visibility on Sainsbury’s strategic plans, we continue to believe that much of Sainsbury’s short- and medium-term earnings prospects will remain dependent upon the magnitude of the much anticipated Tesco price/margin reset… We struggle to forecast future years with confidence.MIKE DENNIS | CANTOR FITZGERALDWe believe the key to the value simplicity strategy is growing like-for-like customer numbers and retaining loyal larger basket shoppers. The dividend cut is a significant shift away from its previous strategy and in our view reflects the threat that Tesco will reset pricing and costs to a lower level to recover lost market share.

first_img There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea orders ban on public trials and executions US dollar and Chinese reminbi plummet against North Korean won once again Kim Jong Un has reportedly issued instructions to government bodies including the Ministry of People’s Security to ban further public executions. “Kim Jong Un has issued instructions to ‘prohibit public executions’ to judicial and prosecution bodies including the Ministry of People’s Security (police). The instruction containing the orders forbids both public trials and executions,” a source in South Pyongan Province told Daily NK on December 13.“The instruction is not aimed at reducing or abolishing executions. It just means that capital punishment will be conducted privately in future.”The North Korean authorities have often been documented carrying out public executions against those who break its draconian laws, including the distribution of South Korean TV shows. Such acts serve as an example to spread fear among residents and deter them from engaging in such activities. Under the Kim Jong Un regime, ruthless executions of high-ranking officials have been conducted for actions running ‘counter to the Party and the revolution.’ South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) reported in October that the Kim Jong Un regime has resumed purges which were in temporary decline following the execution of Hyon Yong Chol, former defense chief of the People’s Armed Forces (MPAF). The number of people publicly executed by the regime reportedly reached 64 by September, according to the NIS.Some suspect that Kim Jong Un’s decision to revert to private executions has been influenced by recent momentum built up by the UN and NGOs highlighting North Korea’s human rights violations, even suggesting that the North Korean authorities may be put on trial at the ICC (International Criminal Court).“(The authorities) have been continuously conducting public executions in order to instill fear among the population, but it seems to have realized the drawbacks of the measure. The regime is presumably becoming sensitive about scenes of public executions escaping to the outside world,” a source in North Pyongan Province explained.It is also being pointed that the current instructions cannot be viewed as a move to improve human rights, but simply a measure to deflect open criticism by the international community. Although a few differences will arise from the measure, including the replacement of guns with blunt weapons, the number of executions is likely to remain the same.Private executions in North Korea are usually carried out in a prison cell, interrogation room, or in the mountains. The executioners immobilize the prisoners on a chair and execute them by repeatedly striking their vital points with blunt weapons such as rubber or wooden clubs and hammers.Testimonies also state that electrocution and lethal injections are used during private executions. “Private executions are generally more feared by prisoners and their families. Without even a public ‘trial,’ it becomes even easier for the regime to execute anyone without consequences,” added a source in Ryanggang Province.“A Provincial Ministry of People’s Security official who gave me this information also said that special units within regional security bodies nationwide will be formed, consisting of executioners. The adoption of private executions will cause great psychological pressure and anxiety for the prisoners.” News Facebook Twitter News AvatarChoi Song Min center_img SHARE North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) NewsEconomy By Choi Song Min – 2016.12.16 5:50pm News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Sources report that North Koreans are eating more and more greenhouse veggies, especially garlic chives NewsHeadlineEconomy Farmers grow vegetables in a greenhouse in North Korea. / Image: Yonhap News Agency North Korea is making an effort to overcome its food shortages by expanding its greenhouse-based vegetable and fruit production industry, Daily NK sources recently reported. For example, Haeju strawberries, once regarded as a specialty of that area, are now grown throughout the country in greenhouses. North Koreans no longer need to make huge batches of kimchi to get through the winter; now they can just purchase greenhouse-grown Napa cabbage, Korean radish, cucumber, eggplant and more in local markets all-year-round. Daily NK sources recently reported, however, that of the many vegetables cultivated in greenhouses, garlic chives are one of the most popular.“Garlic chives grown in Pyongsong, Pyongyang, and Yangdok County are popular in the markets,” a Pyongyang-based source recently told Daily NK. “North Koreans have a lot of dumplings to celebrate the new year, the Great Full Moon [first full moon of the lunar new year] and Kim Jong Il’s birthday [Jan. 8]. Dumplings taste so much better with garlic chives in them,” he added. MORE PUCHO FOR THE PEOPLEIn North Korea, garlic chives are called pucho as opposed to buchu, a term used commonly in South Korea. Although pucho is the standard term for garlic chives in the country, some North Koreans refer to them as manulpa, or literally “garlic leeks.”Garlic chives are generally planted in the spring and harvested in the fall, but now North Koreans have access to fresh greenhouse-grown garlic chives in the winter.“Last season we cultivated pucho in the open air, but now we just cultivate them inside the greenhouses, regardless of the season,” one source told Daily NK. “They’re nutritious and fragrant so a lot of North Koreans enjoy them in their winter dishes.”“Families love putting garlic chives into dumplings eaten during the holidays because they enhance their taste,” he added.North Korea’s government appears intent to extol the benefits of garlic chives. A North Korean document acquired by Daily NK last year remarked: “Pucho is a perennial green in the garlic family, nutritionally dense and with a unique scent and flavor. It protects against cerebral hemorrhage and the hardening of the arteries, and is effective in preventing as well as treating bronchitis, neurasthenia, hemorrhage and skin infections. It is particularly effective in protecting and improving one’s health.”Sources told Daily NK that, in general, greenhouse vegetables cultivated in the winter are pricier than those grown during other seasons. SOLVING NORTH KOREA’S FOOD PROBLEMSFarms are building more greenhouses to cultivate garlic chives in the winter to meet growing demand of North Koreans seeking fresh vegetables.Areas outside of major cities like Pyongyang and Pyongsong, however, will likely have trouble producing enough greenhouse-cultivated vegetables to meet demand, sources said. The Pyongyang Vegetable Science Institute is reportedly providing general “technical support” for greenhouse-based cultivation in the provinces. The lack of materials and expertise, however, make it extremely difficult for isolated farms to build and maintain greenhouses, sources reported. Nonetheless, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has focused heavily on the cultivation of greenhouse vegetables as a solution to North Korea’s food shortages.After ordering the construction of a large-scale greenhouse complex in Gyongsong County, North Hamgyong Province, he paid the construction site a visit last October.North Korean state media has also been praising the benefits of greenhouses and the pucho they cultivate.“Several years ago, there was a story on [North Korean] television about a state-run company that cultivated garlic chives and gave their employees a share of the crops,” said a source. “These days, farms, enterprises and even the military have their own greenhouses to cultivate pucho,” she added.*Translated by Violet KimPlease direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store last_img read more

first_imgCopyright Act to Incorporate Internet Treaties TechnologyAugust 26, 2009 RelatedCopyright Act to Incorporate Internet Treaties FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Copyright Act is to be amended, to incorporate provisions of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) ‘Internet Treaties’.This was disclosed by Manager, Copyrights and Related Rights Directorate at the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO), Miss Philippa Davies, during a seminar on Copyrights, held today (Aug. 26), at the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), on Half Way Tree Road.Miss Davies explained that the ‘Internet Treaties’ give stronger protection for rights that are on the internet and they also give stronger rights to performers and phonogram producers.“So, we are amending the Act to give effect to these international obligations,” Miss Davies informed. The two ‘Internet Treaties’ are the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT).She further noted that JIPO was in consultation with interest groups in relation to amendments being proposed by them for the Act.“For example, the libraries have put forward a proposal that there be exemptions for the visually impaired to make copies of work without having to get permission from the author or without having to pay high royalties. That means converting a printed work into braille,” Miss Davies said.“Then there are representatives within the music industry who have put forward a proposal for an extension of the term of protection. It is currently 50 years and they want it to go much longer than that,” she added.Miss Davies also disclosed that JIPO is currently seeking to put in place regulations for the copyright societies to ensure that they carry out their duties in a transparent and efficient manner.She informed that a study done by WIPO on the contribution of Copyright and Related Industries to the economy of Jamaica (2008) showed that the Copyrights Sector contributed 4.8 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and also accounted for 3 per cent of employment.The main sectors that were covered in the study include press and literature, music, theatre, motion picture, video and sound, radio and television, photography, visual and graphic arts, software, databases and new media, advertising services and Copyright collective management societies.The JIPO was established on January, 2001, to provide a focal point for the administration of both Industrial Property and Copyright and Related Rights, in order for it to fulfill its bilateral and multilateral obligations in the field of Intellectual Property (IP).It has the critical mandate of administering intellectual property systems in Jamaica, in the areas of Trade Marks, Industrial Designs and Geographical Indications, Copyright and Related Rights, Patent, New Plant Varieties and Layout-Designs (Topographies).
