Tags: NULL French giant has started to lose edge CARREFOUR’S executives certainly need to do something to revive the retailer’s flagging fortunes. Anyone who has holidayed in France regularly over the last few years will have noticed that the supermarket giant is losing its edge. It used to be that one of the pleasures of hopping across the channel was a trip to l’hypermarché – with its counters of fresh cheeses and meats – which put most British supermarkets to shame. That’s not true any more: the best branches of Tesco and J Sainsbury can take on Carrefour any day. Of course, they aren’t strictly competing for the same customers in their domestic markets, except in Calais, perhaps. But it does show that something has gone wrong at the French supermarket in recent years. The numbers tell a similar story. Carrefour posted revenue growth of 5.8 per cent last year, or 1.6 per cent when you strip out fuel sales, compared to 7.6 per cent for Tesco.The markets certainly think there is more value in the British leader. Even though Tesco has lower annual sales (£62.5bn in 2009-10 compared to £73.2bn for Carrefour), it still has a higher market capitalisation (£32.33bn against £20.5bn, and that’s with a weaker pound). A flotation or sale of around half of Carrefour’s discounter Dia is an idea worth pursuing: a leaner business could take better advantage of opportunities in emerging markets like Turkey, Brazil and Argentina. Analysts at RBS reckon a sale of 49 per cent of Carrefour Property and Dia would raise €5bn (£4.29bn), while an IPO of 49 per cent of each business would raise €7.8 a share.That is certainly more attractive than management’s strategy of cutting costs while maintaining €1.5bn of investment in Carrefour’s French stores. The sum of the parts is likely worth much more.

SIS’s operator partners will benefit from at least 300 races per year from four of the Czech Republic’s biggest racecourses, and 265 races per year from Hungary’s Kincsem Park.The races will be made available through SIS’s international retail channels, as well as its 24/7 live horse racing channels and 24/7 live horse & greyhound channels, which provide a betting event every three minutes.William Morris, head of international horse racing at SIS, said: “Securing the exclusive rights to deliver live pictures and data for horse racing in the Czech Republic and Hungary is a boost to our international offering.“These additional races further enhance our 24/7 racing service, providing even more quality betting opportunities throughout the day, regardless of time zone, with content that will appeal to bettors, and help drive turnover for operators.”Vicki Gibbins, operations and sales director at LAB said the partnership made “strategic sense”, adding: “Many bettors will be aware of our world-famous race, Velka Pardubicka and we are excited that thanks to this deal with SIS more bettors from all over the world will be able to enjoy and wager on it.”Istvan Pecsi, Managing Director at Kincsem Park, expressed enthusiasm that “more people than ever before will be able to see the exciting action from our racecourses.”SIS was forced into ‘hibernation mode’ earlier this year due to a lack of live racing and worldwide closure of betting shops during the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In response to the crisis, the company shut down all non-essential services and furloughed a significant number of staff, in order to protect its long-term future.

Ian Kirkpatrick left an indelible imprint on the game. The Kiwi blindside belongs in the company of the very best who ever played He captained New Zealand in nine Tests in 1972-73 prior to bowing out in the series victory over the Lions in 1977.Kirkpatrick retired in 1979 but has stayed involved with rugby via media work, as a mentor for young players and as a patron of Ngatapa rugby club. He was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 2003. Ian Kirkpatrick with a ball in one hand His most spectacular score was the 55m burst out of a maul against the 1971 Lions in the Christchurch second Test, Kirkpatrick reflecting: “Pinetree (Colin Meads) always said he had a part to play in that because he gave me the ball. It’s funny, you break out and set off. They came at me and I was able to push them off until I hit the corner. That doesn’t happen very often.”Kirkpatrick needed an injection to play in the next Test having injured a rib whilst handling a farm horse. Major teams: Poverty Bay, CanterburyCountry: New Zealand Test span: 1967-77New Zealand caps: 39 (38 starts)Test points: 57 (16T)When he emerged in the mid-1960s, flankers usually played left and right, rather than openside and blindside, but Kirkpatrick helped shape the role of the blindside flanker as we know it today.A farmer, he learned his rugby at Auckland’s Kings College, joined the Poverty Bay club at 20 in 1966, then moved to Canterbury a year later. New Zealand coach Fred Allen capped him on tour in France that year and Kirkpatrick responded with a try on debut.A year later he became the first All Black to be used as a substitute, coming on when Brian Lochore broke his thumb against Australia in Sydney. Having warmed up by running down the stairs from the reserve seats, Kirkpatrick shredded the Wallaby defence to score a hat-trick in a 27-11 win and for the next nine years he was one of the first names on the All Blacks team-sheet.Tall and athletic, his uninhibited, dynamic style brought him 115 tries in 289 first-class games, including 16 in Tests – an All Blacks record until Stuart Wilson bettered it in 1983.

Rector Belleville, IL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Martinsville, VA [Anglican Communion News Service] The Anglican Church of Burundi has celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first diocese – Buye – with a special service led by Archbishop Martin Nyaboho. The first Anglican presence in Burundi was established by Church Missionary Society missionaries in the 1930s. The church grew rapidly as a result of the East African Revival and its first national bishop was consecrated in 1965 with his see at Buye, which at that time covered the whole country. Fifty years on, the country is now served by seven dioceses.Full article.

The boundary is not clear, but the countryside can be thought of as an extension outside the city. Sites in cities are being attempted to be structured according to system and industrial principles, but in the countryside there are many vague places that deviate from them. In the countryside, it seems commonplace to seek an individual and concrete way of architecture that is completely different from the strong structure of the city.Save this picture!© Takayuki KuzushimaSave this picture!PlanThe planned site of this house is a calm place with a view of the Suzuka Mountains in the distance and fields surrounding it. The road in front is a gentle slope, and there are cluster of enoki mushrooms on the premises. The owner runs a dental clinic next to the north and wanted a plan for the entire site including this house.Save this picture!© Takayuki KuzushimaThis house built along the deformed site boundary almost as it was. There are no walls or fences. There is a height difference of 1 m or more at the planned site, but it was not created and was taken into the room as a ramp. The plan along the boundary of the site, a floor with a height difference, and a roof that descends parallel to the ground. We replaced the characteristic environment with the individuality of the architecture.Save this picture!© Takayuki KuzushimaThe plan took the form of a courthouse, with rooms arranged in various orientations. With a plan using a direct grid, it is difficult to secure an indoor area, and the amount of excavation on the ground increases, making it difficult to cope with deformed sites and slopes. Therefore, instead of using a grid, contour lines were used as auxiliary lines, and the building was bent along the site. The beams were laid out radially around each of the four courtyards, and they were continuous along a meandering road-shaped room.Save this picture!© Takayuki KuzushimaA promenade was planned on the western site, which cannot be built. The site, which had been abandoned for a while, can now be used not only as a vast backyard for the owner’s family and parent households living in the main building, but also as a garden for patients visiting the dental clinic.Save this picture!© Takayuki KuzushimaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaWe are reminded of the possibility of architectural creation in the countryside in the current situation where houses will be dispersed toward the suburbs, avoiding excessive congestion in the city. It’s not just about being safe against viruses and changing the way we work with technology. This is because finding each particularity in the endless expanse outside the city seems to be a manifestation of modern values that seek diversity.
