And the shares nudged higher in early trading.The power and propulsion systems maker said the impact of Covid-19 on the performance of the business in 2020 was “severe”. The Civil Aerospace division has been hardest hit. And the pandemic continues to affect the near-term outlook. However, the firm expects positive free cash flow in the second half of 2021 and “at least” £750m as early as 2022. Before the coronavirus crisis in 2019, Rolls-Royce reported underlying core free cash flow of £911m.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 hard-hitting Rolls-Royce restructuring programmeThe directors said their positive expectation depends on the pace of recovery in engine flying hours and the firm’s ongoing restructuring programme. In 2020, the firm saved more than £1bn from “in-year cash mitigations”, compared to its pre-Covid plans. And there’s a target to raise “at least” £2bn from disposals. On top of that, new debt and equity strengthened the firm’s liquidity by £9bn. The figure comprises £3.5bn cash and £5.5bn undrawn credit facilities.Rolls-Royce reported “strong” progress with its fundamental restructuring programme. And that includes cutting 7,000 permanent and contractor job roles, mostly from Civil Aerospace. The company expects the number of terminations to rise to more than 9,000 roles by the end of 2022. Chief executive Warren East reckons its actions have enhanced the resilience of the overall business and improved operational efficiency “permanently”.Today’s figures show the Civil Aerospace business produced an underlying operating loss of almost £2.6bn in 2020. However, operating profit from other divisions reduced the overall loss to just under £2bn. In 2019 before the pandemic, Civil Aerospace delivered an underlying operating profit of £44m and the overall figure from all divisions came in at £808m. But Rolls-Royce said the pandemic has altered the outlook for the civil aviation industry in the short and medium terms.A mixed outlookLooking ahead, the company expects a rebound in global GDP and the lifting of travel restrictions to drive recovery in the business. The directors think engine flying hours in 2021 will rise to around 55% of 2019 levels in the industry. But the global vaccination programmes should enable the lifting of travel restrictions. And the firm’s “base case” assumption is engine flying hours could rise to 80% of 2019 levels during 2022. However, the directors expect large engine deliveries to remain at the current lower levels “for the next few years”.In the Power Systems division, the outlook is more optimistic. The company said the shorter-cycle nature of the business means many of its end markets should recover by the end of 2021. The directors expect revenues to recover in the division by 2022. And the Defence division has a “strong” order book suggesting the potential for “steady growth” in the medium term. However, the company has no immediate plans for restarting shareholder dividend payments. Image source: Getty Images.

We’ve got you covered ‘Liters for Life’ student campaign raises funds for global water crisis printFor millennials, the Holocaust is a history lesson. For those who lived through it, it remains a painful memory.Holocaust survivor Harry Kahn gave a different perspective to the term “survivor” to TCU students and faculty in a talk on Tuesday.“The idea of looking at it in retrospect is very, very difficult,” said Kahn, who was an 11-year-old living in Germany when the Nazis burned over 250 synagogues and looted Jewish businesses on the “Night of Broken Glass.”“Nowadays, I seldom speak about it because what we do is, we re-live it again,” Kahn said.Kahn was this year’s speaker for TCU Hillel’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust.“Re-living that particular period is not very pleasant,” he said.Hillel, a Jewish organization on campus, also stages a Holocaust Museum to honor the lives of the 6 million Jews murdered by Nazis during World War II.Kahn spoke about his experiences of growing up in the pre-WWII years of Nazi Germany before fleeing to the United States in 1939. Everything changed after the “Night of Broken Glass,” he said.The following morning, he and his sister still went to school.“We went to a Catholic School,” Kahn said. “About 10 in the morning, the priest came to me and said, ‘You better go home, we have a major problem; I have to expel all of the Jewish children in my school.’”The priest was later taken to Dachau, one of the first Nazi concentration camps in Germany.Kahn lived within walking distance of his synagogue, which he passed every day on his way to school. On his walk home the same day he was expelled, Kahn found the synagogue on fire.Following the burning of the synagogue, horror engulfed his small town.“That night, all the Jewish males in town, above the age of eight were rounded up,” Kahn said. “They were gathered near the church, where they were shaved and had the Star of David sewn onto their clothes.”“All these people were transported – directly from there – to Dachau,” he said.Kahn was the only boy excluded because he was given the task of cleaning up the remains of the synagogue the next day.Kahn and his immediate family were able to escape Germany on a ship to the United States. Settling in Chicago, he was forced to watch the Holocaust unfold from the other side of the world.“My father’s family – my grandfather, my father’s three brothers and their families and his two sisters and their families… none of them survived,” Kahn said. “They were picked up on November 29, 1931, and were all transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. They were all killed.”Kahn said the question he is constantly asked is, “How come more people didn’t leave Germany?”“There was no place to go,” said Kahn.Holocaust survivor Harry Kahn.Holocaust survivor Harry Kahn with TCU Hillel President Rachel Rudberg. + posts TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homeless Twitter

News SomaliaAfrica Reporters Without Borders voiced its deep regret today at the death of BBC reporter Kate Peyton, who was fatally injured in a drive-by shooting yesterday as she was entering a hotel in Mogadishu to meet the speaker of Somalia’s transitional parliament, Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden. “We are shocked and saddened by her death, and our thoughts go out to her family and friends,” the press freedom organization said.”If there were any need, this cowardly attack on a journalist shows that it is imperative that a democratic state, guaranteeing the freedom and safety of its citizens, be rebuilt as soon as possible in Somalia,” Reporters Without Borders said.”We have long been condemning the arbitrary violence reigning in the streets of Mogadishu,” the organization pointed out. “As most of the clan chiefs have declared their allegiance to the new government, we call on the last diehards to not spoil this chance for peace being offered Somalia today. This is the essential condition for preventing a repetition of this kind of attack and catching its perpetrators.”Usually based in Johannesburg, Peyton, 39, was hit in the back by a pistol shot fired by masked men in a white Toyota Corolla taxi shortly after 3 p.m. as she was outside the Hotel Sahafi International in southern Mogadishu with several bodyguards around her. Peter Greste, another BBC journalist who was beside her, was not hit.Peyton was rushed to the Medina Hospital, several kilometres away, where a doctor operated on her injury, according to the Somali Journalist Network (SOJON), a local press freedom group. The doctor said he had to remove her spleen, and that her liver was also slightly injured. She died from her injuries a few hours later before she could be evacuated to Nairobi.Peyton’s bodyguards had given chase to the gunmen who had fired at her. Their car was found crashed, with a pistol inside, in Barmuda, a district in the centre Mogadishu. The gunmen had fled on foot. In the absence of any central authority, the neighbourhood where the shooting occurred is normally under the control of hotel security guards. Most foreigners visiting Mogadishu hire bodyguards.Peyton was part of a group of foreign reporters accompanying a delegation of Somali parliamentarians who are supposed to pave the way for the transitional government’s arrival in Somalia on 21 February. Since his installation on 29 August 2004, the parliamentary speaker has been chairing sessions in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi because Somalia is so dangerous.

It undermines democracy and rule of law, leads to violations of human rights, distorts markets, erodes quality of life and allows organized crime like separatism, terrorism, naxalism, radicalism, gambling, smuggling, kidnapping, money laundering and extortion, and other threats to human security to flourish. It hurts the EWS-BPL families disproportionately by diverting the funds intended for development, undermines government’s ability to provide basic services, seeds inequality & injustice and discourages foreign aids and investment, the plea argues.The PIL (Public Interest Litigation) contends that India has never been ranked among the top 50 in the Corruption Perception Index and that the Centre and state governments have also not taken appropriate steps in this regard.The plea has stated that Right to life and liberty guaranteed under Article 21 cannot be secured and the golden goals of Preamble cannot be achieved without curbing corruption and that Centre and States must take steps to reaffirm the rule of law, improve transparency and to warn the looters that betrayal of public trust will no longer be tolerated.It is contended that India’s anti-corruption laws are very weak and ineffective and have failed to control corruption. “Root cause of 50% problems is corruption and it can’t be controlled without tax reform police reform judicial reform administrative reform and legal reform,” Upadhyay argues.Alternatively, the plea seeks directions to all High Courts to take appropriate steps to decide corruption related cases vis-à-vis black money, benami property, disproportionate assets, bribery, money laundering, tax evasion, profiteering, hoarding adulteration human-drug trafficking, black marketing, dishonest misappropriation of property, cheating, fraud, forgery, corporate fraud, forensic fraud, foreign exchange and other economic offences within one year.Recently, Upadhyay had also filed a petition seeking directions to the Centre, states and UTs for setting up an Expert Committee to suggest steps for improving India’s deplorable ranking on the Global Corruption Perception Index.Next Story

IN a thrilling game against their main division two rivals, played with plenty of aggression and no small measure of skill, the Christ Church XV emerged resoundingly victorious. This win means that they have secured promotion for the third successive season.The match was electric from the start, with a powerful run from the kick off by Christ Church prop Chris Hughes setting the tone for a solid forward display from his side. At the beginning of the game the Worcester fringe defence was tested to the limit by the strength and dynamic running of the Christ Church pack. However, despite this period of dominance, points were hard to come by as Worcester tackled hard, with plenty of committment. Their first real scare came when the Worcester wing dealt poorly with fly half Ashley Gillard’s kick, allowing his opposite number Chris Cole to steal the ball and make nearly 70 metres before being hauled down. Cole continued to look dangerous, and it was his menacing running that brought the first breakthrough, a score touched down by full-back Jamie Holdoway on the left touchline after an excellent break. When this was converted by sure-footed Gillard, Christ Church felt they had gained just reward for their dominance. Worcester came back strongly however, exerting pressure on the Christ Church line, but some excellent tackling right on the line by open-side Ian Horn denied them a try. The importance of this missed opportunity was heightened when Christ Church captain Christopher Perfect finished off a period of sustained pressure to bring the scoreline to 12-0. However, the effort being put in by the Christ Church side was starting to tell, and when a couple of sloppy penalties were conceded, Blues footballer Lucian Weston stepped up to show off the full range of his skills. He converted both, and suddenly the game was right back in the balance. The Christ Church try-line was under siege, and when Worcester scrum-half Ben Battcock finally burrowed over on the stroke of half time, the successfully struck conversion gave them a lead of a single point. The momentum seemed to have swung Worcester’s way, and when Ian Horn was sent to the sin-bin for persistent infringement the game looked to be Worcester’s for the taking. However, the Christ Church forwards dug in for a supreme effort, and when Dan Barnes went over for his team’s third try while they were still down to 14 men, it seemed to change the complexion of the game. It was at this point a Christ Church victory was secured. Despite the loss of inside-centre Duncan Chiah to a nasty head wound, the controlled rugby that they played during the last twenty minutes allowed them two more tries, including a second for Dan Barnes, securing their victory.Captain Chris Perfect was pleased with his side’s performance, telling reporters “It was a good win against a good side, and we will look forward to playing them again next season” He appeared enthusiastic about his side’s prospects for the next season, and looks forward to testing his side against the very best in college rugby. The disappointed Worcester side will be looking for a solid performance next week in order to secure their own promotion hopes, however Christ Church can start to plan their assault on the top flight of college rugby.
By Ian CrowleyThe Ocean City Junior Wrestling Program hosted the “Last Call Wrestling Tournament” on Sunday. The event garnered over 2000 visitors to our town as well as over 400 wrestlers. “This is our tenth tournament,” said Carl Wanek, Vice President of the Junior Wrestling Program. “We started with under 200 wrestlers, and today we’re at over 440.”This event brings the community together and has been organized over the years by Greg Young, Carl Wanek, Brenden Gheen, the Godfreys, as well as the late Tom Oves. This is the only Jr. Wrestling Tournament this weekend during the High School States and allows younger children to get some final practice in before the Junior States next weekend.There are six different weight classes, and going from lightest to heaviest they are Tots, Novice Bantam, Bantam, Midget, Junior, and Intermediate. When asked if he was nervous, one kid said he felt like he was in the Super Bowl as he got ready to grapple in front of the huge, cheering crowd. The action on the mats was fast-paced and exciting, as each kid was matched up fairly. Win, lose or draw, a fun and memorable time was had by all the participants.This event is a refreshing spike in business for the local store owners during the slower winter months, and signals that we’re close to the start of the next summer. The parking lot surrounding the High School was packed for most of the day, and there was a noticeable amount of traffic on the boardwalk as more and more stores begin to open up to serve the visitors.Ocean City Boy Scout Troop 32, led by Scoutmaster Dean Mitzel, color guarded the event. The Ocean City Fire Department was also on hand to provide first aid and to show off some of their fire-fighting equipment to excited kids. Without the countless volunteers and participants, this event would not be possible, and it goes to show the rationale for Ocean City being called “America’s Greatest Family Resort.” We look forward to seeing you at next year’s tournament.Editor’s Note: Ian Crowley is an Ocean City resident, a seventh-grade student at the Intermediate School, a Boy Scout and a valued regular contributor to OCNJDaily.com.
