Following January’s £2m auction, Mark Jenkinson’s second auction of 2020 sold 28 of 30 lots for £3.96 million, a 93 per cent success rate.Several ‘properties with potential’ were sold including a detached bungalow on Hathersage Road in a 0.44-acre plot in Dore, Sheffield with structural issues and a guide price of £350,000, which went for £445,000.Adrian Little, Head of the Auction Department, said, “This auction was extremely busy and saw some outstanding individual results. Our sales so far this year reflect a confident market and a shortage of ‘properties with potential’ to meet the ever-increasing demand from builders, developers and investors, large and small. It is encouraging to see strong demand for land, particularly sites being offered without planning, where buyers can start from scratch and work up suitable residential schemes.” auction lot Rotherham auction lot Sheffield Yorkshire and the Humber Sheffield auctioneers auction news Mark Jenkinson and Son auction auctioneers builders developers April 3, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgDawn Foods (Evesham, Worcs) has developed a number of low-fat and lower-sodium products that enable bakers to cater for the more health conscious consumer, the company says.Its new low-fat and lower-sodium cake and muffin mix is 97% fat-free and has less than 300mg of sodium per 100g serving.Consumers traditionally have limited expectations for low-fat cakes and associate them with being tasteless and poor quality, says Dawn. But it claims its new mix produces muffins and cakes that meet demand for a healthier treat, without compromising on taste or texture.According to Dawn, the Bakers Select brand is a new premium range, which is trans fat free and also has the benefits of reduced salt. The mix consistently produces a range of healthier products that do not compromise on taste or texture, says Dawn.Marketing director Maggie Dagostino comments: “With Bakers Select we wanted to create a brand that meets the health issues facing the industry while still offering bakers premium quality products. “The range addresses and overcomes a number of issues currently facing the industry without compromising on taste.”last_img read more

first_imgThe end of the world is nigh. Or at least it was until a chunk of baguette saved the day. Doom-mongers who fear the giant atom smasher in Switzerland the Large Hadron Collider will spark off a particle chain of events that will see the universe cave in on itself can breathe a sigh of relief. Well, for now at least. Yes, work on the world’s biggest particle accelerator, which is not yet operational, came to a shuddering halt when a bird dropped some bread on outdoor machinery, causing it to overheat. The golden question is, was this a carrier pigeon sent from the future to rescue the world with a baton? If so, it’s reassuring to know that in a post-catastrophe future, there is still a market for French sticks.last_img read more

first_img I am determined we do more to listen to those who are often not given a voice. It is only by understanding the situation faced by women and girls that we will be able to protect them. Conflict can have devastating effects for anyone caught in its path, but life can be particularly traumatic for women. They are subject to violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, and their calls for justice are often falling on deaf ears. The event allowed the Defence Secretary to gain a greater understanding of the security situation faced by women, men, girls and boys in conflict-affected areas. In turn this will allow the military to develop better plans for protection of civilians.The meeting was the first time a UK Defence minister has sat with civil societies groups specifically representing women’s human rights from areas affected by conflict. The groups represented included Gender Action for Peace and Security, Action Aid, International Alert, the International Rescue Committee, Plan, Saferworld, Women’s League for Peace and Freedom, Women for Women International, Security Women, Nigeria INGO Forum and Legal Action Worldwide.The UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security has currently nine focus countries, five of which were discussed yesterday: DRC, Iraq, Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan. These nations either have UK military directly deployed there, or are nations where UK-trained peacekeepers are deployed.The UK has already increased peacekeeping in Sudan and Somalia, has deployed four Military Gender and Protection Advisers to DRC and has established a UK centre of excellence to integrate guidelines on women, peace and security into its work. It is also among the first countries to publish a National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.center_img Staff from organisations representing the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Iraq, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Ukraine, as well as several international action groups, were welcomed to London to discuss the issues faced in their countries, particularly by women.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:last_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo June 22, 2011 The drug trade in West Africa is going the way of Mexico, with local players increasingly taking control of an ever more sophisticated system to smuggle cocaine into the rich market to the north, the United Nations said. The amount of cocaine bound for Europe seized in West Africa has dropped in recent years, but that only means the trade is getting more sophisticated, said Alexandre Schmidt, West African head of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). “It means there has been a repositioning of the drug routes and the drug traffickers have much more sophisticated means and they are using more routes,” he said at a meeting in Senegal. The flow of cocaine through West Africa’s fragile states to Europe has shot up the international law enforcement agenda, with experts warning the trade risks corrupting states, spreading instability and weakening the region’s economies. At around $800 million, the value of the drugs passing through West Africa in 2009 was equivalent to large chunks of the economies of some countries in the region. A few hundred Latin Americans still dominate decision-making in the trade, but West Africans have increasingly influential roles, Schmidt said. “This is a new tendency, and what we are seeing in West Africa is like what we saw in Mexico,” he said, citing the way in which Mexicans increasingly displaced Colombians in the ferrying of Andean cocaine to the United States. Concern over the trade has been deepened by fears that al Qaeda’s North African wing had established itself as a player in the trans-Sahara trade, especially after a jet believed to have ferried cocaine was found in the desert. Schmidt said the role of Islamist groups, which has also earned money through collecting multi-million dollar ransom payments for kidnapped Westerners, was still more that of a local fixer than a central organizer. “The terrorists are facilitating the passage of the traffickers … and they receive a payment, either in cash or kind. But we don’t have any proof that the terrorist groups are organizing the drug trafficking themselves,” he said. Citing the arrest of American Prohibition-era gangster Al Capone for tax evasion, Schmidt called on nations to do more to fight illegal finance, especially money-laundering. “If we want to have a real impact on drug traffickers … we need to hit them where it hurts — on the money,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgThe ruling Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) has sacked members who have refused to support the nomination of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s son-in-law, Bobby Afif Nasution, for mayor of Medan, North Sumatra.The dismissal came three days prior to Bobby’s registration with the General Elections Commission (KPU), scheduled on Friday, for the simultaneous regional elections in December.Hasyim, the head of the PDI-P’s Medan chapter, confirmed on Tuesday that four executives from the Medan PDI-P branch management (PAC) had been fired for not supporting Bobby’s candidacy. The four were Medan PAC Johor chair Gumana Lubis, Medan PAC Perjuangan chair Tumpal Sitanggang, Medan PAC area chair Suhardian and Medan PAC Selayang chair Muda Prana Sinuraya.“The dismissed [members] were provocateurs who rejected Bobby’s candidacy. On the contrary, they openly supported Medan acting mayor Akhyar Nasution, who is Bobby’s rival in the regional election,” Hasyim told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.Hasyim said other PDI-P members could face dismissal if they were found to support Akhyar.Akhyar, formerly a senior PDI-P member, was recently fired from his position in the party’s North Sumatra chapter after he turned his back on the ruling party and joined the Democratic Party to secure his candidacy in the city’s mayoral race. Read also: PDI-P recommends Ma’ruf Amin grandson as deputy regent candidate in West JavaHe jumped ship after Bobby, who had been a member of the PDI-P for five months, was touted as a candidate for the race by PDI-P chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri – a decision opposed by a number of PDI-P members in Medan, including the four recently fired officials.Previously, former Medan PAC Perjuangan chair Tumpal Sitanggang said he rejected Bobby’s nomination because he was not a true PDI-P member and was a “forced candidate”.“PDI-P is a party of members, not a family party. Therefore, we reject Bobby’s nomination because he is not a member,” said Tumpal, adding he was ready to bear the consequences of his position.Tumpal said his team was ready to support Akhyar’s candidacy even though he had been nominated by another party. “We will build strength to support Akhyar Nasution,” he said.PDI-P Medan chapter secretary Robi Barus said Bobby’s registration with the regional KPU would take place on Friday. The Gerinda Party, the Golkar Party, the NasDem Party and the United Development Party (PPP) have joined the PDI-P in supporting Bobby’s nominationThe nomination of Akhyar and his running mate Salman Alfarisi has been backed by the Democratic Party and the Islam-based Prosperous Justice Party (PKS). Salman is a PKS member who currently serves as the North Sumatra Regional Legislative Council (DPRD) deputy speaker.Democratic Party chairman Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono said he would provide full support for Akhyar in the Medan mayoral race.“We will give full support and prayers. Of course, we will fight together, sweat together,” Agus said in a recent video message to Akhyar. (syk)center_img Topics :last_img read more
