I tend to look at the biggest rises and fallers most days, and for the past couple of weeks I’ve been seeing a lot of red in the table. And not much green. But Wednesday was different, with three fallen stocks on the rebound.By shortly after midday, shares in Restaurant Group (LSE: RTN) were up a staggering 60%. We have to put that into perspective, mind, as the company’s stock is still down 70% since the coronavirus crisis kicked in.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…It’s not hard to understand why the stock fell. Restaurant Group owns Wagamama, Frankie & Benny’s, Garfunkel’s, and a host of other restaurant chains. And anything involving socialising is pretty much off the cards right now.The firm released a trading update on 18 March, suggesting an overall fall in like-for-like sales of 25% for the full year. That assumed a fall of 45% in the first half, which might be reasonable considering we’re nearly halfway through the half and the period had started well.The firm also guessed at a 5% drop in the second half. But we’re a week on now, the lockdown situation has escalated, and that looks optimistic to me. I think this could be a dangerous investment, and one to avoid.Another reboundShares in pub group Marstons (LSE: MARS) have also been hammered by the Covid-19 crunch, losing 60% of their value so far. That’s for one of Wednesday’s top climbers, and includes a 32% jump on the day.The company released an update a week ago, which couldn’t really say much about the outlook other than “we expect a reduction to our expectations for Financial Year 2020.” It went on to add: “The scale of this will depend upon how the situation develops and over what timescale, and the impact of further measures taken by the Government.” Well, we’ve seen the shape of those further measures now.Marston’s would be in a worse state had it not embarked on a debt reduction programme last year. The update told us it has reduced capital expenditure by approximately £80m per year. It has now also upped its disposals target for the current year from £45 million to £85–£90 million. I’m not sure who would want to buy its real estate right now, though.I’m sure the British love for pubs will bounce back strongly, but I’m on the fence on this one.Essential providerMeanwhile, shares in Halfords Group (LSE: HFD) gained 25% after news that the firm plans to reopen some of its stores. There have been calls for a boycott from some angry consumers who see it as greed, but it has been designated an essential provider of services by the UK government.The motor and bicycle chain has defended its decision, with CEO Graham Stapleton saying it has “an essential role to play in keeping the country moving.” There are plans for partial store openings, and the firm’s Autocentre garages and mobile vans will remain open. While I can understand concerns over employee health, I think it’s good news that people are keeping their jobs and that some important services remain available.The shares are still 50% down, but this could be another good buying opportunity. Halfords is my pick of these three.
Tipping the scales: Romain Taofifenua has been throwing his considerable weight around for Perpignan this seasonBy Gavin MortimerROMAIN TAOFIFENUA is a big lad. Just how big remains something of a mystery. According to which paper you read in France, his weight in the last few months has fluctuated between 125 kgs and 133 kgs. Then again, assuming the official Perpignan website hasn’t got a wonky set of scales, Taofifenua comes in at an eye-wateringly impressive 140kg (just over 22 stone in old money), making him in all probability the heaviest player in professional rugby. Heavier even than Sale and Ireland prop Tony Buckley, who will need to get stuck into a Lancashire hot pot or five in the next few weeks if he’s to add to his featherweight 138kgs.Taofifenua is the latest sensation in French rugby. Included in Philippe Saint-Andre’s Six Nations squad at the weekend, the 22-year-old is an imposing figure regardless of how much he actually weighs. He stands 6ft 5in and is blessed with a deceptively soft touch for such a huge man. Against Clermont last week he scored Perpignan’s only try of the game in the 26-19 victory in what was a man of the match performance. “He possesses a physique that is outside the norm,” said Perpignan captain Nicolas Mas understatedly. “When someone as colossal as he is combines that with technical skill it’s really impressive.”Task master: Saint-Andre pushed TaofifenuaNonetheless Taofifenua – known as ‘Tao’ to his teammates – was given a sharp lesson earlier in the season by Saint-Andre. Having made his international debut in June against Argentina, Taofifenua was omitted from the French squad for their trio of November internationals. Saint-Andre explained why earlier in the week. “Tao has played really well for Perpignan recently. He went on tour with us to Argentina in June [but] in November he hadn’t done enough work in our opinion. Since November you can see by his performances the effort he has put in. You’d have to be blind not see the difference between his performances at the start of the season and now.”In fairness to Taofifenua he did break a hand in a pre-season friendly against Montpellier, an injury that sidelined him for the start of the season and led to his gaining a few extra kilos. He’s admitted in the past that controlling his weight is something he has to work hard at, though it’s not something that alarms him unduly. But then not much alarms Taofifenua, who spends his spare time listening to reggae. Shy and quietly-spoken, Taofifenua describes himself as “cool…I don’t suffer from stress or apprehension”.His brother, Sebastien, two years younger and ten kilos lighter, is a promising prop who has played for Perpignan and France U20. Even he is astonished by the laid-back demeanour of his brother, telling one journalist interviewing Tao that “he won’t even read the article…he doesn’t care.” NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS At the end of last year Taofifenua extended his contract with Perpignan until June 2014, a fillip for the club who were aware of the interest of usual suspects Toulon, Toulouse and Racing. He’s already being described as the French star of the 2015 World Cup, as another big French lad was for the 2007 tournament. The difference is that Taofifenua, unlike Sebastien Chabal, is a seriously good rugby player.Follow Gavin Mortimer on Twitter @gavinmortimer7 The brothers have their father to thank for their rugby prowess. Willy Taofifenua was a stalwart in the Grenoble back-row for many years, and if the name rings a bell it might be on account of the 28-day ban he received in 1999 after laying low Edinburgh flanker Graham Dall during a spicy Heineken Cup encounter.Willy was born in Nouméa, the capital of New Caledonia in French Polynesia, but his boys were born in France, as was their cousin, Toulouse hooker Christopher Tolofua, who was also capped on France’s summer tour to Argentina.Tutor: Charteris will miss the Six NationsTolofua hasn’t made the French squad for the Six Nations but Romain is in, thanks to Saint-Andre’s proverbial kick up the rear, but also to the influence of Welsh lock Luke Charteris. Though Charteris will miss the Six Nations because of a knee injury, he may have some indirect bearing on the tournament should Taofifenua shine for France. Charteris packed down alongside the youngster throughout the autumn and Taofifenua benefited from the experience. “Luke likes the aerial game,” explained Taofifenua in a recent interview. “He’s a runner, a tackler, he can play in the back-row. With me it’s the opposite. I run less than him but I touch the ball more.”

It is now being rolled out to larger Tesco stores with the aim of being in over 1000 stores by year-end.The app can be integrated with the user’s own product, pricing and waste services data, and uses barcode scanners on mobile devices to scan existing product data. At the point of scanning, the retail user indicates if the item can be donated, or is excluded.Donations are then posted onto the system and once accepted by FoodCloud for distribution, the Food Surplus Application builds virtual baskets into which the stores scan each product to record a complete audit trail of which items have been donated and to whom, including weight, quantity, and price. This data is passed back to FoodCloud, enabling the retailer to mark the product as ‘waste.’ App helps supermarkets donate surplus food to charities 199 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA, Army Repeals WOTUS, Proposes New Definition EPA, Army Repeals WOTUS, Proposes New Definition Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter By Ashley Davenport – Sep 12, 2019 EPA, Army Repeals WOTUS, Proposes New DefinitionShortly after his inauguration, President Trump signed an executive order to review and rescind or revise the 2015 Waters of the U.S., or WOTUS rule.At a press conference on Thursday, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler made the announcement to repeal WOTUS alongside Army Assistant Secretary for the Army for Civil Works R.D. James.Wheeler said this repeal is the first of a two-step process to define the scope of waters of the U.S. that are regulated under the Clean Water Act.“Today’s final rule puts an end to an egregious power grab, eliminates an ongoing patchwork of clean water act regulations and restores a long-standing and familiar regulatory framework,” said Wheeler.Since the rule was put into place in 2015, its definition has changed over time. The rule is currently in effect in 22 states and Washington D.C., while the regulations issued in the 1980s are still in effect in the rest of the country.Indiana is one of those states working off of the 1980s rule. Indiana Farm Bureau’s Justin Schneider said, “So, this announcement today, the real effect for us is that this is the end, nationally, to this rule change from 2015. So, EPA has finished the first step in they can now move on to rewriting a rule that provides clarity and certainty that everyone needs.”And what should be in the new rule?“I think you’ve seen a lot of stakeholders come forward and provide valuable insight over the last several years into what should be in the rule. No one is saying we shouldn’t have a rule. We should just have a rule that works for people, that’s clear so you know when you’re in and when you’re not, and that the conditions are there that respect what Congress put in the Clean Water Act with respect to the authority of EPA and what should be regulated by the states.”Schneider says his biggest concern with the previous rule was that it is so difficult to have an overarching standard for something that is so site-specific from farm to farm.“Going back to the drawing board will give us the opportunity to look at the types of practices we do in Indiana, the way we have been able to see a lot of success in implementing conservation practices. There are a lot of efforts underway through the Ag Nutrient Alliance and with all our partner organizations to try to ensure that every farmer is getting the message about the things they can and need to be doing, and this is an opportunity for us to continue to push that as a solution in this state.”Last winter, the EPA and Army issued a new proposed definition to identify where federal jurisdiction begins and ends. The second and final step of the process is the proposed, revised definition of WOTUS.“Our revised and more precise definition would mean that farmers, property owners, and businesses will spend less time and money determining whether they need a federal permit and more time upgrading infrastructure,” said Wheeler.Rep. Sam Graves (R-Mo.), who serves as the ranking member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, was also in attendance. As a farmer, he said farmers knew what it would do to their rights.“WOTUS was not about clean water,” he said. “It was about a blatant overreach of the federal government to take away personal property rights as it pertained to farmers and landowners.”Since President Trump took office, Wheeler said the EPA has finalized 46 deregulatiory actions, saving Americans more than $3.7 billion in regulatory costs.In a statement, USDA secretary Sonny Perdue said the decision was “a major win for American agriculture.” Wheeler said the plan is to finalize the revised definition this winter.

The reported increase of 0.9 percentage points in March is the largest month-over-month increase since January 1975, when it rose by the same margin. Construction saw a drop in employment in March of 29,000. Employment had increased in construction by 211,000 over the past year. However, the Bureau reported average hourly earnings rose by 11 cents to $28.62 in March. “Nearly every major sector saw a decline to employment this month,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist, Fannie Mae. The report also said the number of people who were temporarily laid off more than doubled in March to 1.8 million and the number of people working part-time but would prefer full-time employment, increased by 1.2 million. ‘First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming called Friday’s report, “a shock to the services sector this large is like nothing we’ve ever seen before.”“While many stay-at-home orders exempt construction, housing is not immune. Homebuilding and remodeling lost 4,500 jobs,” Fleming said. Odeta Kushi, Deputy Chief Economist at First American said on Twitter, “this is an additional headwind to builders who were already facing labor shortages.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: housing market 2020 Unemployment Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Share Save While many stay-at-home orders exempt construction, housing is not immune. Today’s jobs report shows home building and remodeling lost 4,500 jobs. This is an additional headwind to builders who were already facing labor shortages.— Odeta Kushi (@odetakushi) April 3, 2020The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) reports that residential construction lost 4,300 in March following an increase of 24,100 in February. The NAHB says residential construction employment now stands at 3 million in March.The Bureau’s report adds the labor participation rate fell by 0.7 percentage points in March, with Duncan adding that indicates many workers have chosen not to search for a new job. Also, Duncan said a non-sampling error by the Bureau of workers on temporary layoff due to COVID-19 “artificially lowered” the unemployment rate by a full percent. “Both of these reasons indicate the rise in the unemployment rate this month was understated,” Duncan said. The Bureau’s report comes 24 hours after the U.S. Department of Labor announced jobless claims doubled to 6.6 million for the week ending on March 28—an increase of 3.3 million. Despite the passing of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree, said these claims represent a significant loss of income to many Americans and disrupt their ability to meet financial obligations. “This will be reflected in a surge in missed payments on mortgages and other consumer finance products. Many of these will be alleviated by programs such as forbearance so the increase in defaults may be muted in the near term,” he said. Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for realtor.com, said it took 16 weeks during the Great Recession—from January to May 2009—to hit 10 million jobs lost. She added there may be new highs set in the unemployment rate in April and June.
