Defrocked Pastor Frank Schaefers Case to be Heard by UMCs Highest Court

MEMPHIS, TN, Oct. 16, 2014-- Frank Schaefer, the United Methodist Church (UMC) minister who was defrocked for officiating a same sex marriage for his son, will have his case heard one last time by the UMC Judicial Council on Oct. 22, 2014 to determine whether his defrocking was legal according to church law and whether he will retain his standing as a UM minister. Though Schaefer appealed his defrocking and was reinstated by the church in June, the UMC is now appealing his reinstatement to the “supreme court” of the Methodist Church, an event that will have global ramifications in the UMC and possibly deepen the division. “Since the Judicial Council includes members from around the world, this is a real test as to where the church stands globally on LGBTQ equality within the church,” says Schaefer. “If they defrock me again, it would indicate that change may not be coming soon. My hope is for the council to allow me to continue as a UM clergy because it would keep the discussion going. If you exclude those who disagree, you close the door to a much-needed dialogue which, in turn, invites a schism.” The UMC maintains that same sex marriage is in violation of its church doctrine and laws. Schaefer, a minister of 20 years, defied the Church's rules in 2007 when he performed his son’s marriage to another man. Following a highly publicized church trial last November, Schaefer was stripped of his credentials, and terminated from his ministry at the Zion Iona UMC in Lebanon County Pa., because he refused to uphold church law that progressives within the Church call homophobic and discriminatory. “I have three gay children,” Schaefer says. “I believe God gave them to me so I would get the message. Gay or straight, we are all created in God's image. Gay or straight, God blesses our love relationships.” Dr. Christopher Fisher, on behalf of a more conservative faction within the UMC, is appealing the outcome of Schaefer’s re-instatement and is pushing for the original defrocking to be ratified and made the final and undisputable penalty. But since Schaefer’s trial last year, no other clergy members whose cases were on the church docket have been brought to trial. In fact, on Oct. 3, 2014 a group of 36 clergy, known as the Philly 36, had their complaints resolved quietly by the Eastern PA conference (the same conference that defrocked Schaefer). Schaefer is one of thousands of clergy who have vowed to offer ministry to all UMC members on an equal basis, a position that has found enormous support within the church. “Both parties claim this is a matter of conscience,” says Schaefer, “and because of that, I want to reach out to those traditionalists who honestly see themselves as the defenders of the truth, and hopefully get them to understand that there is another way to read those Scriptures in historical and cultural context. We don't have to throw out the bible—the proverbial baby with the bathwater--just because we accept homosexuality and gay marriage as something God blesses.“   ###   FAQs:  Defrocked Pastor Frank Schaefer’s Case to be Heard by UMC’s Highest Court     What’s the timeline of Frank Schaefer’s Case? Frank Schaefer was initially put on trial by the UMC and found guilty in November 2013 and suspended from all pastoral duties. He was defrocked 30 days later when he refused to uphold the UM church's Book of Discipline in it's entirety, because “it contains homophobic and discriminatory laws.” Then in June 2014, the Northeastern Jurisdictional Committee of Appeals reversed the defrocking and Schaefer was reinstated. On Oct.22, 2014, that re-instatement is being challenged by the Counsel for the Church, Dr. Christopher Fisher, in front of the Church's highest court—the Judicial Council. Why Pastor Frank’s case matters? There is a large and growing movement within the UMC comprised of members who believe that the UMC is out of step with the developments in the LGBTQ civil rights movement and the apparent shift in popular opinion on gay marriage rights in the United States. Many think that Frank Schaefer’s trial has exposed the fault line that runs through the United Methodist Church, which is deeply divided over the issue of gay rights. For this reason, Pastor Frank’s final hearing is seen as an important event by the global UM Church (which encompasses 11.8 million members). Will the UM church dig in its heels or signal a change from its traditionalist stance? Has any other minister been defrocked since Pastor Frank’s trial and appeal? No. At the time of Pastor Frank’s trial and immediately after, there were several cases going through the complaint process, which included complaints filed against pastors officiating same sex marriages and, in one case, against an openly gay minister involved in an open same-sex relationship.  All six cases have been resolved (the last one is in process) without going to trial. As recently as Oct. 3, 2014, the UMC decided a group of clergy known as The Philly 36 (36 UM clergy who performed a joint same sex marriage in solidarity for Pastor Frank before his 2013 trial) will not face judicial proceedings. What is Pastor Frank doing now? Since he has been reinstated, Pastor Frank has relocated to a parish in Isla Vista, Santa Barbara, Calif.  He is currently on a book tour for his autobiography “Defrocked”,, and has continued his “all means all” campaign with speaking engagements and media appearances. He has vowed to continue the fight against discrimination from within the church. Pastor Frank has received several awards for his work to encourage LGBTQ equality, most recently more than 600 progressive activist showed up on the Sunset Strip as Stuart Milk (nephew of civil rights leader Harvey Milk) presented Pastor Frank with the Spirit of Courage Award, for defending LGBT rights,  Where can I access media guidelines and information about the hearing? Where can I follow the hearing?   · #MinistryOnTrial is the official hashtag for the hearing. · Updates will be posted on, and · HusidMedia@HusidMedia and @standwithfrank will Tweet out media updates.   Where can I find out about prayer vigils and other public events supporting Pastor Frank?   ·   ·   ·        

Kongsberg Automotive to downscale production at Rollag facility by 2018

The board of directors of Kongsberg Automotive ASA has decided to reduce the activity level at its plant in Rollag, Norway. The forging activity will be outsourced and the internal processes will be simplified. This will create more flexibility and enable a move to an alternative KA location after a 3 year period. Kongsberg Automotive’s Rollag plant hosts several manual and automated production processes and has had profitability challenges over the past 15 years. Despite several improvement measures and the best efforts of the dedicated employees over a considerable period of time, the plant has not been able to achieve satisfactory or sustainable profitability. Rollag will be developed in the direction of a pure machining and assembly operation by outsourcing the forging activity and making KA’s plants in Hvittingfoss and Brazil independent of Rollag services. Forging is a labor intensive and expensive process in Norway, and is not well suited to automation. This move will reduce KA’s dependency on the ageing forge and reduce maintenance costs. The combined measures will provide a flexible operation that can be moved to another KA location after a three year period. KA will work with staff and employee representatives to ease the transition during this period, and will do its utmost to ensure that Rollag employees can be offered relevant alternative employment opportunities. The Rollag plant began production in 1975 and was then part of the automotive division of ‘Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk’, which later became Kongsberg Automotive. The plant, which currently employs 87 people, produces stabilizers for truck cabins and rear axles as part of KA’s Driver Control Systems business area. The facility hosts several different processes; from cutting, forging, automated machining, hardening and robot welding, to assembly and powder coating. In 2013 the Rollag plant posted a loss of just over EUR 3 million at the EBIT level on revenues of EUR 17.5 million. The plant looks set to remain unprofitable in 2014. “While the Rollag plant has an important place in KA’s history, the complexity and processes at the factory combined with challenging markets have been barriers to achieving profitability. In a high cost country like Norway, it is critical to have a product portfolio suited for a high automation level. Automating the manufacturing of the current Rollag products has however proven to be difficult. With these measures we want to create more flexibility with a view to moving operations to an alternative KA location within a 3 year period. We will work hard to ease the transition for our employees and maintain all obligations with our customers” said Hans Peter Havdal, CEO of Kongsberg Automotive.


McCulla, a logistics provider for temperature-controlled and ambient goods, has taken on five more Schmitz Cargobull refrigerated trailers, having found their durability and robustness the perfect complement to its operations. The company, with bases in Lisburn and Dublin, operates a mixed fleet of 125 trailers, and has now expanded with its latest outright purchase from Schmitz Cargobull. McCulla has previously bought both new and used Schmitz Cargobull trailers and has been extremely impressed by the resilience of the German-engineered assets. Brian Beattie, Operations Director, McCulla, says: “We last bought new trailers from Schmitz Cargobull in 2008, and all of them have stood the test of time. Our groupage operations are quite high-intensity, which means our trailers need to withstand a lot of punishment. We’ve selected Schmitz Cargobull for our expansion because we know they are fantastically durable and robust.” The new multi-compartment trailers, manufactured in Vreden, come equipped with Thermo King fridge units and will run on multi-drop work, operating in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. Three of the units will be carrying out general cargo operations such as transporting chilled and frozen food for supermarkets and catering suppliers, while two will transport pharmaceuticals. Beattie explains he particularly expects to see lower lifetime operating costs for the new trailers. He says: “We plan to operate these new trailers for 10 years and based on our previous experience, we believe we will have lower repair and running costs. Particularly, we appreciate the fully galvanised chassis – that means we won’t have issues with corrosion, despite regular sea crossings.” He adds: “The FERROPLAST® insulation means we can have a larger internal width without compromising on temperature control or efficiency. We have one customer who is very pleased that we can offer this on our fleet and in general, we find that Schmitz Cargobull trailers have a high level of customer acceptance, so the new assets are beneficial from that perspective too.” McCulla has more than 40 years’ experience providing temperature-controlled and ambient logistics services from its base in Northern Ireland. ends Editor’s notes: Schmitz Cargobull (UK) is a subsidiary company of the German-owned Schmitz Cargobull Group, the biggest and leading manufacturer and supplier of semi-trailers in Europe. The Schmitz Cargobull Group has manufacturing plants in Germany, Spain, Lithuania and Russia and employs over 5,100 people.

In Kazakhstan, service revenue growth slowed in the quarter, but profitability improved due to lower costs. Currently, changes are being made on management level in the country as part of our focus to strengthen governance and operational control. In addition, we continued our assessment of the operational assets in Eurasia, resulting in a non-cash write down in the quarter, as recently communicated. Our strategic agenda was further presented at our capital markets day in September, where we outlined our overall ambition to transform TeliaSonera in the next few years to reach the full potential and equip for the all data era. To accomplish this journey, we will invest in new growth and savings initiatives. We will invest an accumulated amount of up to SEK 4-5 billion during 2015 and 2016 to further drive growth and improve our competitiveness, primarily through accelerating the Swedish fiber roll-out, establishing new offerings in the enterprise segment and upgrading data networks in Eurasia. In Sweden, the aim is to increase the number of households reached by Telia-Sonera’s fiber services from 1.1 million to 1.9 million between 2014 and 2018. Sustainable cost savings can only be achieved if we exit legacy structures and reduce complexity across the group. Therefore an accumulated amount of SEK 2 billion will be invested in business transformation in 2015 and 2016 to reach net savings with a yearly run rate of SEK 2 billion during 2017. Keeping a solid balance sheet and investment grade credit rating is important to us. We aim to balance this with continued attractive shareholder returns and our new dividend policy targets an annual distribution of at least SEK 3 per share for the fiscal years 2014 and 2015. Based on the performance in the first nine months, we reiterate our full year 2014 outlook, expecting net sales in local currencies to be slightly below the level in 2013, an EBITDA margin around last year’s level and CAPEX-to-sales of around 15 percent.” Stockholm, October 17, 2014 Johan DennelindPresident and CEO   Questions regarding the reportsTeliaSonera ABInvestor RelationsSE–106 63 Stockholm, SwedenTel. +46 8 504 550     TeliaSonera AB discloses the information provided herein pursuant to the Swedish Securities Markets Act and/or the Swedish Financial Instruments Trading Act.

TOMRA:  Third Quarter 2014 Results Announcement

All time high order intake and all time high order backlog Order intake during third quarter 2014 in Tomra Sorting totalled 550 MNOK, up from 403 MNOK during same quarter last year, ending the quarter with an all-time high order backlog of 672 MNOK. Revenues in the third quarter 2014 amounted to 1,236 MNOK compared to 1,231 MNOK in third quarter last year. Revenues in TOMRA Collection decreased by 2% (down 5% currency adjusted), while revenues in TOMRA Sorting were up 5% (up 2% currency adjusted). Gross margin was 43% in the quarter, up from 42% in the corresponding period last year, with stable margins in both business areas. EBITA was 210 MNOK in third quarter 2014 versus 217 MNOK in the third quarter 2013. Cash flow from operations in third quarter 2014 equaled 236 MNOK, up from 202 MNOK in third quarter 2013. Tomra Collection Solutions The business area reported a decline in revenue of 2% in third quarter 2014, compared to same period last year. After adjustment for currency changes, revenues were down 5%. Gross margin was stable at 42%. EBITA was MNOK 151, down from 161 MNOK. TOMRA will start a process to divest TOMRA Compaction (Orwak). The actual synergies between compaction and reverse vending have proven to be insignificant. Moreover, TOMRA’s former strategy of providing recycling technology equipment has changed into creating sensor-based solutions for optimal resource productivity. Selling compaction equipment does not fill a natural role in this strategy. Tomra Sorting Solutions Strong order intake leads to an all-time high order backlog at the end of the quarter. Revenues in the quarter increased by 5% compared to same quarter in 2013. Adjusted for currency effects, revenues were up 2%. Gross margin was stable at 44%. EBITA increased from 62 MNOK in third quarter 2014 to 66 MNOK in third quarter 2014. “After three quarters with lower order intake in 2013, we have now experienced four consecutive quarters with significantly better order intake in Tomra Sorting. Revenues and profit is consequently expected to improve in fourth quarter 2014”, comments Stefan Ranstrand (President and CEO).

ResLedaren helps users to plan and safely complete journeys on public transport. The service is available to everyone but has been developed specifically for people with cognitive function disorders. As a group, these people often experience difficulties with short-term memory, perceptions of time, sense of direction, problem solving and flexibility. “ResLedaren compensates for any limitations in a person’s functional abilities and guides them safely to their destination. Being able to move between different places is a key to taking an active part in society. We are very proud to be able to help more people feel more secure about using public transport,” says HiQ’s Magnus Gudéhn. ResLedaren reminds the user when it is time to leave home and what is necessary to bring – a mobile phone, for example and a travel pass. During the journey the app signals when it’s required to press the stop button in order to get off the bus/subway or change routes. Users are supported all the way to their final destination. “Earlier this year, HiQ developed a solution for the Swedish Post & Telecom Authority to make Facebook accessible to deaf-blind people. That too was an example of how to make life simpler and open up society to everyone, including those with disabilities or special needs. We’ve always been motivated to improve people’s lives and that motivation is only growing stronger,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ. Future versions of ResLedaren will make it possible to send pre-programmed journeys to others and to follow them in real time. Parents, for example, will be able to send travel plans to their children. ResLedaren ( is currently available for Android ( and will soon be launched for iPhone as well. ResLedaren has its starting-point in the innovation contest Travelhack, where HiQ’er Joel Holmberg was part of the winning team. It has been a joint project by Autismpedagogik, Samtrafiken, SL and Viktoria Swedish ICT, in which Vinnova has provided the funding and HiQ the technical development.

Significant events after the end of September: ·Order for 3 EBM systems During the past twelve months Arcam has changed significantly. While sales of our EBM systems continue to increase, we have expanded our business with the metal powder manufacturer AP&C in Canada and the contract manufacturer DiSanto in the US. We now have an offering to our clients with our EBM systems as a hub and metal powders and contract manufacturing being important supplementary products, broadening our offering to the market and providing recurring sales. Trailing twelve months sales amounts to 268.7 MSEK and operating profit amounts to 13.4 MSEK. The operating profit includes non-recurring costs associated with the acquisition of AP&C and DiSanto of about 10.4 MSEK. Acquisition of AP&C In February we acquired the powder producer AP&C from Raymor Industries in Canada. AP&C is a leading manufacturer of high quality metal powder and supplier of titanium powder to Arcam since 2006. Titanium powder is an important part of our offering and with this acquisition we have secured access to the best technology for the production of high quality metal powder for our customers. The acquisition is fully in line with our growth strategy and complements our EBM technology and product portfolio. The acquisition was completed on February 11, and is consolidated from this date. Acquisition of DiSanto Technology In September Arcam acquired DiSanto, a strategic partner since February 2013. The acquisition combines Arcam’s cutting-edge Additive Manufacturing technology with DiSanto’s full-service contract manufacturing services for orthopedic implants. Through DiSanto we offer manufacturing of advanced EBM-based implants and other components. The combination of Arcam’s EBM technology and DiSanto´s know-how in orthopedic implant manufacturing will accelerate the market adoption of Additive Manufacturing in the implant industry. DiSanto is a fully equipped and certified production facility for the production of finished orthopedic implants with approximately 100 employees. The acquisition was finalized on September 2, 2014 and DiSanto is consolidated from this date. Through these acquisitions we now have a broad offering for our customers; metal powders through AP&C, acquired earlier this year, EBM systems and services through Arcam AB and contract manufacturing through DiSanto. The acquisition is thus in line with our growth strategy, and complements our technology and product portfolio. Business status We received 21 new orders in the period and we see a continued strong demand, particularly from the aerospace industry. Order intake for our new large system, Arcam Q20, is strong. The work to industrialize our technology with the major players within the aerospace and implant industries continue and we can now see good opportunities for volume orders during the year. Of the 20 systems that were delivered during the period the majority went to customers within the medical implant or the aerospace industry. In the beginning of July we acquired our agent in the UK. We already have a support operation in the UK and with this new step we take responsibility for direct sales and support on the important UK market. Growth – organic and through acquisitions In addition to the acquisition of AP&C and DiSanto we are in rapid organic growth. We thus continue to recruit qualified employees in order to meet the expectations from our customers. During the period we have strengthened our service office in China and the support organization in Sweden. Through the acquisition of AP&C and DiSanto and through recruitment the number of employees has increased from 64 to 233 since September 2013. We will maintain an ambitious recruitment pace in order to further develop our technology and offering and thus exploiting the present business situation. A strong order book and a positive business situation lay a solid foundation for a strong closing of 2014 and continued growth in 2015.  Mölndal, October 17, 2014 Magnus René, President & CEO The information has been made public in accordance with the Securities Market Act and/or the Financial Instruments Trading Act.

Resistance, Rights and Racism: Gypsies and Travellers on the English Green Belt

The battle between Gypsies, Travellers and the settled community over how land can be used has moved to the Green Belt, observes Peter Kabachnik of the City University of New York. Writing in the Journal of Cultural Geography, Kabachnik notes that the current shortage of authorised caravan sites has led to one-third of the country’s nomadic population having no ‘legal place to live’. As a result, many travellers purchase, settle on and often get evicted from Green Belt land. He observes: “These choices make Gypsies highly visible, as the land they are asserting their right to is more valuable, both economically and aesthetically, than the stopping places that were once more commonly used.” These choices can also lead to conflict, but they demonstrate an increased sense of ‘agency’ among the travelling community, too; with few other options, many nomads are now challenging and resisting established norms and power relations ‘one caravan pitch at a time’. To understand the travelling community’s experiences, Kabachnik conducted dozens of interviews. Here he draws heavily on the account of the extended ‘Jones’ family whose legal disputes with the council after developing a Green Belt site without permission – and subsequent evictions – are described in great detail. With 90% of planning applications made by Gypsies and Travellers denied in the first instance as opposed to 20% of those from the settled community, many families now own land they cannot live on. Kabachnik argues that both more legal caravan sites and changes in the law are needed to reduce tensions between the settled and travelling communities. Since 1994, the travelling way of life has essentially been criminalised in England and Wales. He concludes: “The laws and its application serve to structure nomad-sedentary relations, and the current legal sedentarist regime constructs those relations as adversarial … As it stands, racist hostility is enabled, produced and fuelled by the illegal status of Gypsies and travellers. The fact that Gypsies and Travellers are technically breaking the law legitimizes the fervent intolerance of many English townspeople.” Traditionally seen as out of place in the city but also now not wanted in the countryside, many nomads are fighting for more than just the right to a home; they’re also fighting for a ‘right to a place’. Kabachnik’s study offers a unique perspective on this fight: that of the nomads themselves, not the media or local residents determined to drive them out, wherever they are.

Halfords, the UK’s leading cycle retailer, is lending its support to the Government’s newly announced plan that brings ‘national’ back into planning for cycling. On 16thOctober, the DFT released its consultation version of its Cycling and Walking Delivery Plan, outlining plans to double cycling by 2025 and to explore how further funding can be generated for cycle schemes across England. Unlike many previous government announcements that focussed on ‘localism’, the new consultation appears to recognise the need for national leadership.   Says Emma Fox, Commercial Director at Halfords: ‘It’s great to see a delivery plan that stresses the importance of strong leadership being critical at both a local and national level. It’s music to our ears that the Government is committed to bringing about so many positive changes in cycling in England.  We very much look forward to hearing further developments in the Government’s Delivery Plan as well as details on funding for such an ambitious and welcome initiative.’ Halfords recently issued a state-of-the-nation report on cycling safely which uncovered how important cycling is to our nation and how vital the nation thinks cycling education is from a young age. A massive 82 per cent of all those questioned claim they would support a requirement on the National Curriculum that all children be taught to cycle competently, confidently and proficiently on the roads. Emma goes on to say “The Government has claimed it is serious about making the UK a cycling nation, kick-starting a cycling revolution that will remove barriers for future generations of cyclists. At Halfords, we know how important is it to start these skill sets young and educate the next generation on cycling. Since April last year, more than 44,000 parents and children have attended a Halfords kids’ bike workshop, where children aged 7-11 learn basic bike safety, repair and maintenance.  Halfords has also brought bike workshops to primary schools nationwide this year - these initiatives help fuel a lifelong interest in cycles – as well as sound cycling safety knowledge. To ensure we become a cycling nation, there needs to be support on a national level; the recent DFT announcement is therefore a welcome step in the right direction.  According to our recent cycle safety report, the announcement will be welcome by many across the UK - over half of us (55 per cent) claim the Government should give more attention and investment to cycle safety in general." -ENDS- 

Acquisition of the French company, GFOI, strengthens Beijer Ref’s position in the southern hemisphere

The Swedish refrigeration group, Beijer Ref AB, is acquiring all shares in GFOI (Générale Frigorifique Océan Indien), a French refrigeration wholesaler on the Réunion Island located approximately 800 kilometres east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Réunion is one of two French département in the southern hemisphere with more than 840,000 inhabitants and a rapidly expanding tourist industry. GFOI was founded in the year 2000, reports sales of approximately SEK 50M and is the leading refrigeration wholesaler in its market. ”The acquisition is a step forward in our expansion strategy outside Europe.

GFOI will be integrated into Beijer Ref’s organisation and will serve as a branch of the Group’s French refrigeration wholesaler, GFF. This will provide cost synergies and estimates to increase the Group’s market share. The acquisition is deemed to have a marginally positive effect on Beijer Ref’s net income. The company will be included in Beijer Ref’s accounts from October 2014. GFOI’s management will continue to take an active part in the company.

Witches swap broomsticks for steam power on NYMR Halloween Story Trains

They are perhaps more used to travelling by broomstick, but this Halloween, the witches of Yorkshire will be relying on a rather more traditional means of transport as they step aboard the North Yorkshire Moors Railway for two Halloween Story Trains! The special services will depart from Pickering with the magical crew on board to entertain travellers with stories, spells and challenges as they travel to Grosmont Station.  Once there, passengers will disembark for a special magic show, before the witches gather up their young apprentice witches and wizards for the return journey back to Pickering.  The morning story train leaves Pickering at 11.00am, returning at approximately 2.40pm, whilst the afternoon departure leaves at 1pm, returning as darkness falls at around 4.50pm. “There is never a dull moment on the Story Trains, with live characters keeping passengers on their toes for the duration of the journey – and the Halloween Story Train will be particularly enchanting, with the promise of a live magic show once they arrive at Grosmont station,” explains marketing manager, Danielle Ramsey.  “We are hoping that all our young passengers – and maybe some of the adults, too, will dress for the occasion – pointy hats, broomsticks, warts and all, as we’ll be giving out family passes for 2015 visits to the best dressed on each train.” Once back at Pickering, the fun continues with some special visitors in the learning centre on Platform 2, including creepy crawlies, critters and rodents – the perfect mix for a Halloween treat!  There will also be colouring sheets and craft activities for children to enjoy, before they head home to trick or treat! Tickets for the Halloween Story Train cost £45 for a family (two adults and up to four children), or £20.50 for an adult ticket, £17.50 for seniors and £10.50 for children.  Tickets must be pre-booked via the website (, by calling 01751 472508 or in person from the ticket office at Pickering Station.

Organic industry leaders confirmed for Nordic Organic Food Fair 2014

Renowned Swedish chefs Paul Svensson and Anders Ramsay, strong proponents of sustainable organic cuisine, have been confirmed to host live demonstrations at this year’s sold out Nordic Organic Food Fair, taking place in Malmö, Sweden, on 26-27 October. Now in its second year, the two day trade event, which sold out of all exhibition space last month, also boasts a packed Organic Theatre programme featuring sessions from IFOAM EU, KRAV Sweden, EkoMatCentrum, Fazer Food Services, Soil Association Certification, and Rolf-Axel Nordström, founder of Ängavallen. Paul Svensson, a well-known face on Swedish TV, has over a decade of experience working in top restaurants, including the Michelin-starred F12 and Bon Lloc in Stockholm.  In 2003, he represented his country in the world's most prestigious chef competition – the Bocuse d´Or, where he came in fifth place.  After officially opening this year’s show at 10am on Sunday 26 October, Svensson will be giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy his culinary skills in a series of live cooking sessions on the Menigo stand (FC10).

Tele2 press statement addressing Svenska Dagbladet article titled “Secret report could damage Tele2” [”Hemlig rapport kan fälla Tele2”]

The article focuses on Tele2’s operations in Kazakhstan and refers to a “secret report”.

However, as part of our strong risk management procedures, we are constantly reviewing the situation and continuously improving how we operate in the market.”On Ms. Aigul Nuriyeva, Tele2 is aware of the rumours concerning her ownership of Asianet.

Survey Proves No Public Confusion Between TCM Big App Store And Apple's App Store

GLOBAL giants Apple Inc have sent an intimidating 77 page document to Apt Projects Ltd, owners of the TCM Big App Store, which purports to support their objection to Apt’s application for the trademark ‘TCM Big App Store’. Technology firm Apple Inc, more recently recognised for large scale tax avoidance in the UK, have continued to pursue legal action to prevent the small UK firm from using a name claimed to be in breach of copyright. Apt Projects Ltd recently commissioned an online survey in response to the aggressive action by Apple, with the aim of comparing the two company logos and where you would go to buy a phone app. The survey was entitled 'I can believe it's not Apple' and its aim was to clearly highlight the differences between the two logos. Over 91% of voters stated that there was a clear difference between the two, appearing to disprove Apple's claim. Managing Director Tony Rust commented “Last week we set up our ‘I can believe its not Apple’ – - survey and this showed that the public can overwhelmingly see the difference between the Apple App Store and TCM Big App Store logos and that they can understand that they can’t buy Apple phone apps from the TCM Big App Store. Apple are doing us great harm in unsettling our potential investors because of their objection to our trade mark application. It’s just another ruse by this giant company to dominate all before it. Apple have got so much power and limitless financial resources they seem to think that they own the English language. It is using their tax avoidance cash mountain to stifle an innovative and hard working UK company and one which is not a threat to Apple in any way. There really doesn’t seem to be any justification for Apple’s opposition to our Trade Mark application. The Apple App Store sells phone apps, we sell ‘TCM Big Apps’ which are developed using our TCM software development kit and which run on PCs and servers, not mobile phones. On my reading of the plain words of their document of objection I don’t believe that they are correct. In my view it’s a misuse of process.” Tony Rust continued to explain the company's position, suggesting an element of common sense and fairness be applied by Apple Inc “We will be strenuously defending our TCM Big App Store trade mark application. We already have a lot invested in this business in time and money and we’ll fight to protect it. Come on Apple, we’re no threat to you. Please back off and leave us alone, you’re causing us all sorts of problems.” About TCM Big Apps TCM Big Apps are business management software solutions designed for specific types of businesses which run on PCs or server networks. They make life easier by simplifying and automating many of the clerical tasks which are a drag on productivity. TCM Big Apps are full of clever time saving and easy to use functions which remove work from the user and provide great reports. Examples would be CRM and sales force automation, or a system for a sports club or equipment hire, or tradesman type businesses - plumbers, heating engineers and the like. About TCM Big App Store The TCM Big App Store is the only virtual on line 12 floor, 7 acre 700 counter department store. It has lifts and escalators and stairs to move you from floor to floor; Cookery and Sports Demonstration Areas, a pet shop with a rhinoceros and fish racing... it’s a zany marketing approach and we invite additions to the Story of the Store which records the history of this virtual building which has the address ‘Kingsbridge, Central London’.

Thousands of lights to commemorate WWI heroes

Lights were shining to remember the victims of WWI  (Nieuwpoort, Belgium) - Between 7.00 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. on Friday 17 October, the front line of late 1914 in the westernmost part of Flanders, Belgium was lit up during the 'Light Front'. Spanning 84 km, from the beach at Nieuwpoort to ‘The Memorial to the Missing’ in Ploegsteert, the front line was lit up by a human chain of 8,400 torchbearers. Every ten metres, a participant was holding a torch. International dignitaries, national and regional authorities together with the Royal Couple and thousands of visitors participated in this appealing commemoration.For many of the visitors, the serene atmosphere in which this massive and impressive remembrance event took place was extremely moving.Its success can be attributed to years of intense preparation by the provincial government and, above all, the 8,400 torchbearers together with more than 1,600 volunteers. The Province could also rely on the support of the Flemish and Federal Governments with critical cooperation with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the Volksbund in Belgium and several local partners.600,000 names of victims were displayedBesides the thousands of torchbearers along the 84 km route and the artistic fire installations on nine locations, ‘Light Front’ also displayed the 600,000 names of victims on different monuments.The ‘Light Front' scores at home and abroad250 journalists from around the globe followed the event locally. The 'Light Front' attracted international interest not just from the media, but also among the torchbearers. Besides the international young people who launched the 'Light Front', many foreign nationalities participated in this special event. Torchbearers from Great Britain, Denmark, France, Canada, Germany and the Netherlands joined the action. In fact, a total of 21 different nationalities were registered.What happened in Flanders Fields – and what’s happening now?In 1914, the German army marched through Belgium en route to France, the start of a war that would affect many nations. The majority of the country was occupied. Only the ‘Westhoek’ part of Flanders, named now Flanders Fields, remained free from occupation, and was part of the Western Front. For four years, the region was the site of a hopeless trench war, with countless victims. For four long years Flanders Fields was the scene of WWI. The landscape of the region still tells the story of the war. It contains hundreds of monuments and cemeteries which have great historical significance for the people of many nations. There are numerous museums which explain in an interactive way all the aspects of the conflict: the battles, daily life, etc. WWI was the first truly global conflict. Victims from more than 50 countries are buried in Belgium, including Americans and Canadians. Certain spots in Flanders have forever been engraved in the collective memory of other countries and regions. President Obama visited the American cemetery in Waregem earlier this year.

Award-winning volunteer calls for more people to share their time and expertise

Fresh from his success being named ‘Volunteer of the Year’ in the York Press Community Pride Awards 2014, volunteer chairman of the community-run Joseph Rowntree Theatre in York, Dan Shrimpton, has put out a fresh plea for more people to give their time to local projects. “It is an incredible honour to have received the Volunteer of the Year award, particularly when there were so many other worthy candidates shortlisted, but in common with everyone who was nominated, I’d hope that we help inspire more people to give their time to local projects,” says Dan.  ”Without an army of volunteers, the Joseph Rowntree Theatre would have closed to community groups long ago, and everyone, from the youngest performers to the tens of thousands of people who come here to enjoy some of the highest quality amateur performances in the country would be missing out.” Indeed, the theatre is currently looking for new volunteers to join its board. “We’ve had a fantastic year, with 116 performances at the theatre in the last 12 months, but we will not continue to thrive and grow without more volunteers joining our team,” adds Dan.  “Particularly, we are looking for enthusiastic people from all walks of life who can bring their experience, skills and time to help us with bookings and managing the front of house, recruiting more volunteers, fundraising and marketing.  A little experience would be great, but a passion for helping the theatre to thrive is what we’re really looking for.” The theatre is hosting two informal visit days, Saturday 8 November and Saturday 15 November at 10.00am, when those interested can chat to current board members about the roles. “Being given this fantastic accolade will mean so much more if it helps us get more people into volunteering in York,” concludes Dan.  “Everyone comments that you get more out of volunteering than you put in; a social activity that impacts on the far wider community.” For more information on volunteering at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre, please contact Dan Shrimpton on 07511 123659 or visit ENDS For further media information or photographs, please contact: Jay Commins Pyper York Limited Tel:         01904 500698 Email:

Electrolux President and CEO Keith McLoughlin’s comments on the results for the third quarter 2014

In the third quarter of 2014, the Group’s operating income increased by almost 30% to SEK 1.4 billion compared with the same period in 2013, and cash flow after investments improved by SEK 600 million to SEK 1.6 billion. The main factor behind this result is a strong operational recovery in Europe. The Latin American and Asia/Pacific operations performed well in challenging macro-economic conditions. Our sales and earnings in North America remain at a good level and continue to strongly contribute to the Group’s overall result. Our operations in Europe continue to recover as a result of strong focus on cost savings, production efficiency and product portfolio management. Despite continued difficult market conditions, with a recent weakening of leading indicators and consumer confidence in a number of countries across both Western and Eastern Europe, we have managed to significantly improve results. During the third quarter we achieved an operating income of SEK 484 million, with an operating margin of 5.5%, compared with SEK 111 million in the same period of 2013. Our work to restore and secure long-term profitability in Europe includes cost reductions and a focus on improving the product mix, but also actions related to the manufacturing footprint program initiated ten years ago. As parts of the final stages in this program, consultations are initiated with employee representatives regarding the production in Mariestad, Sweden, and Schwanden, Switzerland. Decisions will be taken after the consultations. Both Major Appliances Latin America and Major Appliances Asia/Pacific have been facing challenging market conditions with slow demand in several markets. Although market demand in Brazil has stabilized following the very weak spring and summer, other parts of Latin America have continued to deteriorate. In Asia/Pacific, we have noted a weakening in demand in Australia, and also in the Chinese market. Under these conditions, it is very encouraging to see that both business areas have performed well and have been able to adapt to the new situation in a timely manner. Major Appliances North America continues to deliver results with a good contribution to the Group’s earnings. Sales growth in the region remains healthy. Earnings were impacted by major transitions required to meet new energy standards from the Department of Energy as well as a continued weak market for air-conditioners. The transition has been slower and more complex than anticipated. Our operations within Professional Products continue to improve with an expansion of the operating margin. In September, we announced the largest acquisition ever in the 95-year history of the company. The planned acquisition of GE Appliances is an important strategic move for Electrolux which will give us a significant presence in one of the largest appliances market. GE’s premium, high-quality appliances complement our own brands and enhance our competitiveness as a global appliance maker. We expect a closing of the acquisition during 2015. We are excited about the upcoming transaction to acquire GE Appliances. However, we are continuing the work in all our business areas with the aim of further increasing growth and profitability. This work provides the foundation for reaching our vision of being the best appliance company in the world as measured by our customers, employees and shareholders.

Second AP Fund to divest holdings in a number of fossil-fuel based energy companies

Following a comprehensive risk analysis of all Second AP Fund holdings in fossil-fuel based energy companies, based on climate impact, the Fund has decided that it will no longer invest in 12 coal and 8 oil-and-gas production companies. “Our starting point for this analysis has been to determine the financial risks associated with the energy sector. By not investing in a number of companies, we are reducing our exposure to risk constituted by fossil-fuel based energy. This decision will help to protect the Fund’s long-term return on investment,” says Eva Halvarsson, CEO of the Second AP Fund. The majority of the turnover generated by the coal-production companies identified in the Fund’s analysis derives from the sale of thermal coal. These companies face considerable climate-related financial risk, due to the negative environmental and health impacts of coal, which affect demand. Furthermore, coal-powered electricity production is subject to competition from gas and renewable energy. In the case of oil-and-gas companies, the Fund has identified a number of companies featuring substantial exposure in high-cost projects, such as oil-extraction from oil sands. The Fund believes these companies face serious climate-related financial risks and that it is highly likely that these projects may either be stranded or unprofitable. The Fund’s holdings in the 20 companies that have been identified amount to a total market value of about SEK 840 million.    For further details, please contact Eva Halvarsson, CEO of the Second Swedish National Pension Fund, or Ulrika Danielson, head of Corporate Communications, on +46 31-704 29 00.

High growth in Scania’s service revenue

Customers are increasingly demanding Scania’s services and revenue rose by 11 percent during the third quarter of 2014 to the highest level in the company’s history − SEK 4,832 million. “Volume has increased and we are also getting some support from the weaker Krona, which meant that currency rate effects contributed positively. Calculated in local currency, revenue rose by 6 percent,” says Scania’s President and CEO Martin Lundstedt. In Europe, service revenue rose by 11 percent to SEK 3,241 million compared to the third quarter of 2013. In Latin America, revenue rose by 8 percent to SEK 724 million and revenue in Asia was 17 percent higher than the previous year, SEK 383 million. In Africa and Oceania, service revenue rose by 6 percent to SEK 301 million, while in Eurasia it increased by 10 percent to SEK 183 million compared to the third quarter of 2013. “We are continuing to invest in increased capacity in the service network, especially in emerging markets, in order to support our customers when they expand their operations. One example is the Russian market where the network has grown to include about 60 service points. Our ambition is that services should grow faster than vehicle sales over a business cycle,” comments Lundstedt. By combining vehicles and services, it is easier to differentiate the company's offering from the competitors. One example is Ecolution by Scania, which was launched at the start of the decade, where volume amounts to almost 4,000 contracts sold with an average fuel saving for customers of 10 percent.   Connected vehicles offer potential for the advancement of service concepts, which can help customers save costs and boost earnings. Today Scania is a leader in this field and by year-end about 100,000 Scania vehicles will be connected.

Environment Prize-winner uses satellites to reveal human impact

Satellites catch sweeping images of Earth, every hour, day and night. Eric Lambin, who divides his time between Stanford University in California, and Université Catholique de Louvain in his native Belgium, has for decades developed methods of analyzing these satellite images by linking them to socioeconomic data. By doing that, he and his research colleagues can track land use changes on the impact of trade and demand for biofuels or food crops. His research has focused on trying to bridge two disparate communities – remote sensing scientists and human ecologists. This technique, sometimes called the people-to-pixels approach, can, with faster computers and improved data, make it possible for businesses, NGOs and governments to better monitor in almost real-time environmental impacts from human activities. A world without forests would challenge life on earth. Deforestation was earlier mostly perceived as a result of population growth. In his research, Professor Lambin has demonstrated that it is not as simple as that. In reality there are intricate and complex patterns, even cascade effects of human activities that affect the forests and other natural resources. Eric Lambin points to statistics showing successful reforestation in Vietnam. “It seemed like a success story. But when we looked at all the data and compiled all information locally and nationally, we discovered that use of wood had simply shifted to imported wood, increasing deforestation in neighbouring Cambodia and Laos.” This type of research is vital in planning for a transition to sustainability and is a focus area for this year´s Volvo Environment Prize laureate. Eric Lambin adopted the people-to-pixels approach as young doctoral student in Sub-Saharan Africa in the mid-1980s and has expanded it throughout his career. In the words of the Jury, “Eric Lambin has successfully bridged social, geographical and biophysical disciplines in order to advance the global understanding of land use change and what it means for human wellbeing". Besides his academic research Eric Lambin is also reaching out to broader audiences. His most recent book, “An Ecology of Happiness”, asks us to take a look at the impact of nature on ourselves, rather than the conventional approach of discussing human impact on the planet. The natural world, he argues, is essential for human wellbeing and pleasure-seeking. Preserving nature is not only good for a portfolio of ecosystem services; it is essential for us in order to be happy. Eric Lambin is professor at the Earth & Life Institute and School of Geography, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium and at Environmental Earth System Science, School of Earth Sciences and Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford University, California. The Volvo Environment Prize was founded in 1988 and has become one of the world’s most prestigious environmental prizes. It is awarded annually to people who have made outstanding scientific discoveries within the area of the environment and sustainable development. The prize consists of a diploma, a glass sculpture and a cash sum of SEK 1.5 million and will be presented at a ceremony in Stockholm on 26 November 2014.

Ronnie Leten comments on Atlas Copco’s Q3 results

Year-on-year, orders received in the third quarter increased 20% to MSEK 23 395, supported by acquisitions and improved demand from manufacturing customers. The organic order growth was 2%. Revenues reached a record of MSEK 23 590 (20 552). The adjusted operating profit was MSEK 4 604 (4 214), corresponding to a margin of 19.5% (20.5). Including one-time, non-cash charges, mainly related to impairment of assets, the operating profit was MSEK 4 145. The operating cash flow was strong at MSEK 3 915, supported by a reduction of working capital. “The demand from the manufacturing industry improved, which resulted in a record quarter for our Industrial Technique business area and increased orders for small industrial compressors,” said Ronnie Leten, President and CEO of the Atlas Copco Group. “Thanks to past investments and continued customer focus our service business generated record revenue. Demand for mining equipment is still soft but remains stable.” In September, Atlas Copco acquired Henrob, a specialist in self-pierce riveting, a mechanical fastening process for joining sheets of material where welding is difficult, such as aluminum. “This acquisition gives us an additional assembly technology,” said Ronnie Leten. “It offers us an opportunity for further growth in a fast-growing market segment, with innovative, state-of-the art technology.” Also during the third quarter, Nico Delvaux and Andrew Walker started as Presidents of the Compressor Technique and Construction Technique business areas, respectively. Both are long-time serving executives with many years of various leadership positions in the Atlas Copco Group.

Renters’ property wish list revealed – cost, location and easy parking

The study revisited the factors that influence whether someone will rent a property: · cost – 87% (up 16% from March 2013 and 5% from April 2014); · location – 80% - up by 19% from March 2013 and 2% in the last six months; · ease of parking – the importance of easy parking has nearly doubled from 23% 18 months ago to 53% (up 16% since April 2014); · while cost and location consistently remain the top two influencers on whether to rent a property, previously, the third most important factor was either whether it had a garden (March 2013 and April 2014) and the décor (October 2013). The latest survey showed that ease of parking is now the third most important factor, followed by the garden (50%) and then the décor (47%); · in October and April 2014, 92% of females said the rental cost was the most important factor, followed by location; · and while in April 2014, 70% of males said that both the cost and the location were equally important, as at October 2014, male renters’ attitude to cost has changed, with 82% citing the rent as the most important factor, then the location (77%); · nearly half of all female renters (46%) said that getting on with the landlord influences whether they rent a property (a 30% increase since April 2014) compared to 24% of males (up 7% since April 2014). The study also asked how many rented properties the respondent has lived in during the past five years: · 53% of renters have stayed for 5 or more years in the same property (10% less than a year ago); · in October 2013, 15% of males had lived in 4 or more properties in the last 5 years (compared to 8% of females). As at October 2014, 6% of male and 23% of female respondents had lived in 4 or more properties. Ends

Dannemora Mineral significantly reduces capital need under revised investment plan

An updated investment plan shows, compared to the plan presented in September 2014, a reduced capital need from SEK 400 million to SEK 300 million. The fundamental change from the previous plan is that the rebuilding of the sorting plant with a dry step and a wet process will be done in an existing building instead of a new factory building, which significantly reduces the amount of investment capital. Also, by using the existing industrial building, investments can be implemented gradually, which means that deployment rate increases. As a result, recovery rate of iron ore can reach the target of 58 percent, compared with today’s 40 percent, faster than previous estimates. After the investments, Dannemora Mineral is expected to reach a very competitive cost level, which would give profit even at today's low price of iron ore. Estimated cash cost, after investments, is 38 U.S. dollars / ton. The significantly reduced capital need for the necessary investments - to rebuild the sorting plant to increase the recovery rate and to move crushing below the ground to meet the environmental requirements imposed - means that the number of potential investors can widen. This in turn increases Dannemora Mineral's chances of reaching a settlement. Additional details are available in the presentation Updated investment and business plan - October 2014, which is available at Dannemora Mineral's website:

Third quarter 2014:Continued solid premium growth and good profit performance

The Gjensidige Insurance Group recorded a profit before tax for the quarter of NOK 1,336.7 million (1,673.3). The profit from general insurance operations measured by the underwriting result was NOK 755.0 million (852.5). For the investment portfolio, the return on financial assets was 1.0 per cent (1.5), or NOK 552.0 million (825.7). The profit after tax was NOK 997.7 million (1,328.2), corresponding to NOK 2.00 (2.66) per share. The underwriting result was driven by a solid growth in premiums and a good underlying claims development, but it was negatively affected by more claims relating to thunder and lightning. The proportion of large losses was higher than in the corresponding period last year, among other things as a result of a torrential downpour in Denmark and Sweden at the end of August. The overall level of large losses was nonetheless lower than is normally expected. Both the Retail Bank and Pension and Savings have improved their profit performance since the same period last year as a result of volume growth. The financial result in the quarter was satisfactory given the challenging interest rate situation. - I am very pleased that we manage to combine continued solid growth with good profitability, says CEO Helge Leiro Baastad. - The result reflects good operations and confirms that our work on risk selection, price adjustments and process improvements is paying off in a market characterised by strong competition, says Baastad. The Group recorded a profit before tax expense for the year to date of NOK 4,240.5 million (3,291.0). The profit from general insurance operations measured by the underwriting result was NOK 2,055.1 million (1,643.9). For the investment portfolio, the return on financial assets was 3.6 per cent (2.8), corresponding to NOK 2,059.0 million (1,603.2). The profit after tax expense was NOK 3,225.5 million (2,536.1), corresponding to NOK 6.45 (5.07) per share. The underwriting result was positively influenced by a solid growth in premiums of 8.6 per cent and good cost control. The underlying claims development was also good, among other things as a result of favourable weather conditions. A higher proportion of large losses was partly compensated by a somewhat higher run-off gain. Gjensidige Bank’s profit performance was good in the period, driven by volume growth and efficient operations. Pension and Savings also recorded a positive profit performance. Gjensidige launched a subordinated bond issue with of NOK 1.2 billion in the quarter. The Board has decided that excess capital in the amount of NOK 2.0 billion, or NOK 4.00 per share, will be distributed as extra dividend and that the profitability targets for the general insurance operations will continue to apply.

The agreement is planned to run for two months, during which a thorough joint analysis will be executed within Etihad's operations at these three airports, in turn forming the basis for subsequent negotiations and agreement on delivery of the service to Etihad's full network, currently involving approximately 90 airports throughout Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and North and South America. The agreement has an undisclosed contract value due to contractual confidentiality and commercial reasons. "We are very pleased to have signed this contract with Etihad", says Ryan Ellison VP Aventus Sales at AVTECH. "The contract is not only proof of concept of the change in overall market approach that we implemented in May 2014 when the Aventus Business Unit was reorganized, but it is also yet a potentially strategic Aventus contract with a highly renowned company in the airline industry. We are humble to now enter into this evaluation agreement and we are committed to do our utmost to deliver benefits according to mutual expectations", finishes Ryan Ellison. "Receiving this contract with Etihad Airways I want to thank Ryan Ellison for his, as always, excellent work with Sales”, says Jonas Saric, Business Unit Director Aventus NowCast and CFO. “The contract is a stepping stone into a potentially great long term collaboration between AVTECH and Etihad.

I look forward to an exciting winter of 2014/2015", finishes Jonas Saric. “We are happy to proceed with this evaluation and are looking forward to seeing the benefits that this tool will provide us with” says Sander de Moor, Etihad’s Senior Manager Fuel Efficiency. “When considering the current relative crudeness of generic atmospheric data on the one hand and the capabilities of on-board equipment on the other hand, we are impressed with the elegance of this tool in addressing these issues. If successful, apart from entering in a long-term agreement, Etihad will also consider expanding the agreement to cover the enroute capability offered by AVTECH’s Aventus Enroute product, covering accurate wind data for the entire flight. Longer term, we are expecting others in the field of aviation to catch up and make these enhanced capabilities and tools a standard, which will help the industry as a whole to become more efficient”, finishes Sander de Moor.

Fresh New Track Has Its Sights Set On Christmas Number 1

An ambitious British singer has her sights set on hitting Christmas number one with the launch of a brand new festive track. Upbeat, jolly and wonderfully catchy, Father Christmas Baby ( was written to push the boundaries of the UK’s Christmas charts. With a swinging sax rhythm and captivating vocals, it’s already pegged as a future Christmas classic. Angel Belle, vocalist on the record said, “I know it’s a long shot but I do believe in Christmas miracles and I really feel that this track is a fabulous alternative to what’s offered by the X Factor or run of the mill songs. It’s new, it’s fresh and above all, it’s festive!” Angel Belle, is the festive alter ego of Caroline Fenna, a respected industry pro, having starred in West End musicals such as Footloose and Starlight Express.  While Belle lends her voice to the song, the music and lyrics were written by Will Johnston, grandson of none other than famed British entertainer, Professor Stanley Unwin. Johnston was inspired to write the track after turning to Christmas music during a post car crash recovery phase. Drawn to the positive messages and catchy melodies, he found it was an effective way to lift his mood. After listening to hours on end of Christmas tunes, Johnston began to wonder why there have been so few new memorable Christmas songs over the past few years. Rather than wait for someone else to do it, Johnston and Belle combined their musical talents and went at it on their own. The result is a wonderfully uplifting song that is guaranteed to get people singing along. In the lead up to Christmas, the duo is calling on people to give the song a listen, share it with their friends and help push it up the charts. While Christmas number one is a long shot, Belle and Johnston plan on giving it their all! For those in search of a fresh new Christmas sound, Father Christmas Baby is just the ticket. Johnston explains, “To me, Christmas songs should be upbeat, uplifting and actually about Christmas! That has all been taken away by X-Factor. It’s too corporate and not enough about fun. It’s been 40 years since Wizzard and Slade and people still love those songs. There is room for some instant nostalgia and Father Christmas Baby certainly delivers on that score.” While the single is an independent project, the musical team involved are far from amateur.  Not only are the vocals performed by a professional former West End singer, Rebecca Ferguson’s drummer Adam gives the catchy drumbeat and the sax is provided by Alan Whetton, formerly of Dexys Midnight Runners and a host of others. “I’d love people to get behind this. Please listen, love it and share the festive fun with everyone you know. Let's have a proper Festive No.1 this year!” adds Belle.    The track has already been picked up by a number of well-known radio stations worldwide, including BBC Radio Northampton, where an earlier mix made its debut on the John Griff Christmas Eve afternoon show in 2013. Radio stations with iPluggers access can download here: Father Christmas Baby is available to download from the iTunes store for just £0.79. For those that love the musical composition, an instrumental version is also available. Father Christmas Baby has been released under Design House London Records.  Facebook:

Huntington’s Disease Society of America Announces 2014 HD Human Biology Project GRANT RECIPIENTS

New York, NY, October 20, 2014 -- The Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) is pleased to announce that eight research grants have been awarded under the Society’s largest research initiative, the HDSA Huntington’s Disease Human Biology Project.  Totaling $795,000, these grants emphasize the importance of bringing basic and clinical researchers together to facilitate Huntington’s disease (HD) science beyond animal models and into the human condition with the participation of HD patients. “With this year’s awards, HDSA not only continued, but significantly expanded our financial commitment to foster innovative patient-focused research to help the HD research community better understand the biology of Huntington’s disease as it occurs in people”, said George Yohrling, PhD, Director of Medical and Scientific Affairs at HDSA.  “The broad impact these HDSA supported studies can have on aspects of HD drug discovery and clinical development is enormous.” HDSA received applications from researchers from twelve different countries.  Ultimately, grants were awarded to eight research fellows, from seven different institutions, in four countries (USA, Canada, The Netherlands and Germany).  The winning projects include development of a human stem cell neuromuscular model, sleep assessment in HD patients, biomarker development, improved brain imaging data to enable better and faster clinical trials and unbiased “big data” approaches to better understand disease pathology and identify potential drug targets for HD.  The winners and titles of the 2014 HDSA HD Human Biology Project Grants are: · Dr. Barbara Calamini, Research Scientist, Duke University: Human Stem Cell-Derived Neuromuscular Co-culture Platform for Assessing Peripheral Manifestation of Huntington’s Disease, Amy Bradshaw Humphrey Memorial Award Winner · Dr. Dawn Loh, Research Associate, UCLA: At-Home Monitoring of Sleep/Wake Cycles of Huntington’s Disease Patients, Amy Bradshaw Humphrey Memorial Award Winner · Eleni Mina, PhD Candidate, Leiden University Medical Center, the Netherlands: A Novel Systems Medicine Approach for HD Biomarker and Therapeutic Target Discovery · Dr. Shihao Shen, Post-doctoral Fellow, UCLA: Transcriptome Isoform Networks in Huntington’s Disease · Dr. Eun Young Kim, Post-doctoral Fellow, University of Iowa: Developing a Robust Segmentation Pipeline that Allows for Consistent Trajectory Estimation of Huntington’s Disease Gene Positive Individuals  Across Multiple Longitudinal MRI sites · Dr. Sonia Podvin, Post-doctoral Fellow, University of California at San Diego: Proximal Mutant Huntingtin Protein Interactions that Occur in a Polyglutamine Length-Dependent Manner in Human HD Brains · Dr. Giulia Cisbani, Post-doctoral Fellow, University of Laval (Quebec): Microvesicles: Biomarker and Vehicle for the Propagation of Mutant Huntingtin Protein · Dr. Alexander Buntru, Post-doctoral Fellow, Max Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine (Berlin, Germany): Development of a Novel FRET-based HTT Aggregation Assay as a Diagnostic Tool for Huntington’s Disease For a complete summary of these eight research projects, please visit Uniquely, the HD Human Biology Project requires that all awardees propose to work in collaboration with at least one of the twenty HDSA Centers of Excellence across the USA.  The HDSA Centers of Excellence are a select network of academic medical centers providing expert multi-disciplinary care to HD patients and families from health professionals with deep passion in the area of Huntington’s disease.  “The Human Biology Project is a testament to HDSA’s extraordinary commitment to support promising HD research,” said Louise Vetter, Chief Executive Officer of HDSA. “We take pride in providing the world’s finest HD services to the families we serve, but we also play an integral role in finding a cure for this devastating disease.”    Thanks to the kind generosity of the Pittsburgh community, two of this year’s top scoring Human Biology Project proposals from Dr. Barbara Calamini (Duke University) and Dr. Dawn Loh (UCLA), were given the additional honor of being named winners of the Amy Bradshaw Humphrey Memorial Award.  Sadly, Amy passed away earlier this year after a long battle with HD.   HDSA would also like to acknowledge the generosity of the Gies Foundation and CHDI Foundation.  Their support of the 2014 Human Biology Project allowed HDSA to double the number of awards made in 2013.  Most importantly, their support will enable more high-quality, impactful human HD research. Huntington’s disease is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. HD is known as the quintessential family disease because every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene. Today, there are 30,000 symptomatic Americans and more than 200,000 at-risk of inheriting the disease. The Huntington’s Disease Society of America is the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by HD.  From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today and hope for tomorrow for people with HD and their families.

Interim report July - September 2014

"Stable earnings in a challenging environment" “Trelleborg posted stable operating profit and retained its operating margin at the same high level as during the strong third quarter of 2013. Net sales increased by 6 percent compared with the year-earlier period, and acquisitions contributed to 2 percent. We achieved these healthy earnings despite weaker market trends for several market segments and thus a slight fall-off in organic growth. “The third quarter was characterized by major variations among the market segments in terms of demand for our products and solutions. The common feature was however that we maintained our intense focus on cost control, cash flow and value-generating measures in a more challenging market. We once again proved the strength of our business model. “The market outlook is affected by an increasing uncertainty, particularly in Europe. Our overall assessment is however that demand for the fourth quarter will be on par with the third quarter. As before, we are carefully monitoring the economic developments and we are continuing to maintain high preparedness to address fluctuating market conditions”, says Peter Nilsson, President and CEO. Continuing operationsNet sales for the third quarter of 2014 increased by 6 percent (7) and totaled SEK 5,614 M (5,306). Organic sales declined by 2 percent (increase: 6). Effects of structural changes contributed 2 percent (pos: 3) while the effects of exchange-rate movements were a positive 6 percent (neg: 2). Operating profit, excluding the participation in TrelleborgVibracoustic and items affecting comparability, rose 6 percent to SEK 730 M (688), equivalent to an operating margin of 13.0 percent (13.0). Items affecting comparability for the quarter amounted to an expense of SEK 41 M (expense: 101), which was fully attributable to previously announced restructuring programs. Operating profit in the quarter for TrelleborgVibracoustic, excluding items affecting comparability, rose 26 percent to EUR 39 M (31). This corresponded to an operating margin of 8.8 percent (7.4). Trelleborg’s participation in TrelleborgVibracoustic amounted to SEK 155 M before tax (25). The participation includes items affecting comparability amounting to an expense of SEK 20 M (expense: 109) and is in line with communicated full-year levels. Earnings per share rose 54 percent to SEK 2.15 (1.40). Operating cash flow amounted to SEK 899 M (763), including a dividend of SEK 131 M from TrelleborgVibracoustic. Market outlook for the fourth quarter of 2014Demand is expected to be on a par with the third quarter of 2014, adjusted for seasonal variations.

Interim report January - September 2014

Kai Wärn, President and CEO:“Husqvarna Group’s positive trend from the first half year continued into the seasonally smaller third quarter. Total Group sales increased by 3%, adjusted for changes in exchange rates. Operating income for the third quarter increased by 46% to SEK 301m (206), and the margin rose to 4.4%, driven by improvements across all business areas. On Group level, the favorable development was supported by reduced material costs, higher sales volume and improved productivity. Cash flow was solid, and the net debt/equity ratio improved to 0.50 (0.57). From a business area perspective, currency adjusted sales for Americas and Construction increased by 6% respectively, while Europe & Asia/Pacific was flat. In terms of earnings, Europe & Asia/Pacific reported higher results and improved margin, Americas’ turn-around showed steady progress reducing the operating loss in the quarter by more than half, and Construction sustained its profitable growth. As previously communicated, the Group’s current focus is to increase the operating margin from approximately 5% in 2013 to 10% in 2016. On a year-to-date basis, the operating margin has improved by close to 2 percentage points. The positive development has largely been enabled by a successful execution of the Accelerated Improvement Program, which primarily aims to cut product cost by reducing material costs, and improve product mix by focusing on core brands and on products where the Group has leadership positions. We are now taking the final steps of preparing for next season. Keeping the momentum in the execution of the Accelerated Improvement Program is the priority for 2015. In parallel, the new brand based organization will be fully operational as of January 1, 2015, and forms the base for taking steps towards expansion beyond 2015. From a short term demand perspective, we expect the fourth quarter to show a stable development compared to the corresponding quarter prior year.” Third quarter · Net sales increased to SEK 6,785m (6,349). Adjusted for exchange rate effects, net sales increased 3%. · Operating income increased 46% to SEK 301m (206).

Our partnership with UNE has made a very solid contribution recording revenue slightly ahead of our own expectation and EBITDA at a 28% margin. It is very early days and the team are focussed on the considerable task of integration but together with the Tigo mobile business, which maintained its momentum in Q3, we see an exciting future opportunity. Across the Tigo business we continued to see the benefits of the work we have undertaken over the last two years, which we highlighted at our Capital Markets Day in Miami at the end of last month.  Organic revenue growth at 8.6%, excluding UNE, was a good achievement. Revenue maintained momentum not just in Colombia, but also in Bolivia, Guatemala and across the African businesses which achieved 12% organic service revenue growth in the quarter. It keeps us firmly on track for our $9bn revenue target in 2017. We also had a good quarter in the Cable & Digital Media business. Tigo Star has extended its services with five of seven markets in Latin America now offering satellite payTV - making it available to tens of millions of people in rural areas and complementing our cable services. At the end of September, we had 45,000 customers on this service and our monthly take-up rate is accelerating. This is an impressive adoption rate and is very encouraging for the future development of this product. We are continuing the transformation of the company elsewhere with the promotion and take-up of mobile data services with Smartapps in Latin America and Tigo Music in Africa both launching this month. Data users have risen 13% over the last three months and now comprise 25% of our mobile customer base.  Innovation in mobile money has gathered pace with the launch this quarter in Tanzania of the world’s first service offering a direct return on balances as well as the start of Africa’s first interoperable MFS. Overall, MFS has grown organically by 45%. We have intensified action on efficiencies right across the company. We continue the rigorous country-by-country, function-by-function programme which has already identified important savings in one of our key markets.      At our recent Capital Markets Day, we affirmed our target of long term EBITDA margin of around 35% but, more importantly, operating cash flow margin of 20%. The success of our business in driving forward profitable revenue growth will be a key factor in achieving these goals and the results so far give me confidence in our capacity to deliver.” Hans-Holger AlbrechtPresident and CEO,Millicom 2014 Guidance Target Guidance (excluding UNE) YTDRevenue (i) We expect revenue growth(a) to accelerate at a mid to high 8.7%  single digit rate (versus comparable 5.5% in 2013) (ii) Reported revenue growth at constant exchange rate vs. 19.7% 2013 over 15%EBITDA  EBITDA margin will stabilize around the mid-30s% mark 33.5%Capex In 2014, we expect a capex to revenue ratio of around 19%, 17.0% excluding spectrum and license acquisitions Shareholder remuneration We reiterate our dividend policy for no less than $2 per share and at least 30% of normalised net income. We continue to have the ambition to progressively grow ordinary dividends.

For further information, please contact:Nikolaj Sørensen, CEO or Henrik Juuel, EVP and CFOTel: +46 (0)18 780 88 00, E-mail: CEO’s commentsDuring the third quarter we have taken several important steps to improve the treatment of opioid dependence and to establish Zubsolv as a preferred choice. We finalized the detailed analysis of our clinical studies. Especially the ISTART study demonstrated interesting and positive data for Zubsolv, outlined in the Zubsolv section, which will become the foundation for our commercial efforts in the fourth quarter. Another important milestone has been the implementation of the agreement with United Health Group (UHG) where Zubsolv became the exclusive choice for patients in the highly controlled plans of UHG. The agreement with UHG has been followed by additional market access agreements, the most noteworthy being the agreement with the largest commercial prescription payer, the pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) Express Scripts (ESI) and a leading Managed Medicaid provider WellCare. ESI will place Zubsolv in a preferred position from January 2015 and WellCare will place Zubsolv in an exclusive position with implementation starting in November this year. I am pleased to see that sales of Zubsolv continue to grow; in terms of tablets prescribed Zubsolv increased by more than 80 percent compared to the second quarter. The significant growth resulted in a market share (tablets prescribed) that increased to 4 percent in September compared to 2.3 percent in June. A lot of the growth came from our agreement with UHG, however we also experienced double digit growth in all other major books of business, and even within large commercial insurance companies where Zubsolv is not yet a preferred product, for instance within ESI, we saw double digit growth. This shows that Zubsolv is competitive and during the summer we have seen many of our sales districts exceeding 10 percent market share in the commercial prescription segment i.e. the market segment where we have comparable or better market access than our competitors. A continuous clinical and pharmaceutical development of Zubsolv is the foundation for our strategy to ensure sustainable long term growth. A first step on the clinical development was taken when we filed an application to expand the Zubsolv label to include Induction of treatment. In addition, we are expecting approval of our higher strengths shortly. With a new label and new dosages, more patients can get the right dose by taking only one tablet and thus reduce the need to combine different dosages from the first day of treatment. We are working on several additional life cycle initiatives for Zubsolv, which can differentiate the product further from competing treatment alternatives. To ensure a solid financial foundation of Zubsolv and to advance our pipeline, we successfully completed a private share placement in September. Our major investments in inventory and clinical studies are behind us, we have streamlined the Swedish operations, and our US commercial operations are very close to break-even, we are now well positioned to expand our focus and will initiate the next steps in our development pipeline. Two immediate initiatives will be to decide the final development path and commercialization strategy for OX51 and for Zubsolv outside the US. For both initiatives we will assess the optimal timing of involving external partners from a value creation perspective. This will enable a continued management and R&D focus on the Zubsolv US launch and life cycle management. Our main focus remains on the commercialization of Zubsolv. We will continue to expand our field force as market access improves and our expectations for the last quarter of 2014 are set high. We have accomplished a lot during the first three quarters of 2014, and we are fully committed to continue at a high pace to ensure that we gain additional market share, fully leveraging the clinical results from the ISTART study and improved market access.

Millicom partners with Deezer for Tigo Music in Africa

With Deezer, Tigo Music will launch in Ghana soon and roll out to Chad, DR Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania in the coming months.  Deezer has more than sixteen million active monthly users, five million subscribers and a catalogue of over 35 million tracks. In Africa the service will also offer a large list of locally produced content. Tigo will market and distribute the service to its growing smartphone population by bundling it with mobile data packs. In the past three months alone, an additional 500,000 people took such a pack from Tigo operations in Africa. The launch in Africa follows the success of the partnership in Latin America where there are already over 600,000 Tigo Music subscribers with the service being the leading distributor of music in Colombia. Music streaming is the fastest growing area for the global music industry and music content is already the second most popular mobile phone feature in sub-Saharan Africa. Smartphone penetration there is forecast by the GSMA to grow 30% annually in the next five years.    Millicom announced last month a partnership with one of Africa’s leading digital music companies, Africori, to fund, acquire and manage music rights through a new venture called “Africa Music Rights”. Millicom’s Executive Vice-President for Africa, Arthur Bastings, said “There is a huge appetite for music in Africa and people increasingly want to choose where, when and to what they listen. So Tigo Music with Deezer gives them the freedom to enjoy the passion and emotion of their music. It is another service that contributes to the digital lifestyle and shifts mobile use further from voice to data.”       Cédric Diedrich, Head of Telecom Business Development at Deezer said: “We are excited to be extending our partnership with Millicom and look forward to bringing our service to Tigo Music customers in Africa. The service will use Deezer’s personalized human recommendations and smart algorithm to give customers access to our 35 million track strong library on its mobile platform.”

Millicom to drive data takeup with smartapps

The smartapps service: bundling premium services with data Tigo’s post-paid customers will be able to choose and activate from a group of premium applications included in their monthly data plan: -       Tigo Music: featuring 30 million streamed tracks as well as an online listening facility -       Qello: exclusive full-length HD music documentaries and concerts spanning all genres -       Gameloft: users select four games each month such as Sonic, Assassin’s Creed and Spiderman -       Busuu: with over 200 hours of online lessons to learn eleven different languages, including English, German, French and more. -       Smartbooks: Tigo’s own smartbooks app has a library of 1,000 titles. With APPtualizate, Tigo’s prepay customers will be able to discover from dozens of apps, which will include locally-relevant content such as maps, cooking, fitness, basic music and film.   The service begins its full rollout in Colombia and will be available in El Salvador and Bolivia later this month and in all Latin American Tigo markets by the end of the first quarter of 2015. With low penetration of debit and credit cards in these countries, the service is a simple way for customers to access mobile content. Over the past year Millicom has experienced a significant rise in the number of its customers taking data packages with one in four now having mobile online access.  Its drivers have included Tigo Music with over 600,000 customers and the FIFA World Cup app which was a top download in five Tigo markets. This has been boosted by the wide availability of smartphones at around $45. The smartapps campaign: guiding and motivating the consumer The first phase of the smartapps marketing campaign in Colombia, including a TV spot filmed in Medellin, features the simplicity of using apps on mobile devices as well as the extraordinary range of content available. It shows the millions of consumers who may be unfamiliar with the concept of apps, how they work and how useful and entertaining they can be to position Tigo as a trusted and friendly provider.   The campaign reinforces the Tigo Smart brand which promotes a selection of smartphone products and services designed to make customers’ lives easier and the smartphone experience more fun. Commenting on the launch of the new service today, Millicom’s CEO and President Hans-Holger Albrecht said “Online use on the go keeps on growing and now our smartapps service will reinforce this decisive shift from voice to data use on mobile devices. It’s a key part of our strategy to provide a digital lifestyle and promote stronger customer loyalty with valued services and attractive bundles.”

Scania Interim Report, January-September 2014

Summary of the first nine months of 2014 • Operating income rose by 7 percent to SEK 6,356 m. (5,939)• Net sales rose by 6 percent to SEK 65,638 m. (61,864)• Cash flow amounted to SEK 2,213 m. (1,741) in Vehicles and Services Comments by Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO: “Scania's earnings for the first nine months of 2014 amounted to SEK 6,356 m. Positive currency rate effects and higher service volume were offset by a weaker market mix. Total order bookings for trucks during the third quarter decreased, compared to high level of the previous quarter, mainly related to the Middle East. Order bookings also decreased in Europe compared to the previous quarter. However, this is in line with the seasonal pattern in the European market. Scania has strengthened its position in the European market with increased market share compared to 2013, among other things through a leading Euro 6 range. Order bookings in Latin America were in line with the previous quarters. In Asia, order bookings decreased, primarily in the Middle East, which declined from a very high level in the second quarter. Demand in Russia was adversely affected by the turbulence in the region and order bookings were at a low level – although a slight improvement compared to the second quarter of 2014. Scania has also increased its market share. In buses and coaches, order bookings were stable compared to the previous quarter. In Engines, order bookings rose, driven by regions outside of Europe. Scania is continuing its long-term efforts to boost market share in Services and revenue increased by 11 percent during the third quarter to the highest level in the company’s history. Financial Services showed a strong performance and customer payment capacity is good. The level of activity related to development projects remains high and Scania is investing in expanded production and service capacity. In gearboxes, Scania has initiated extensive cooperation with MAN, which will mean a stronger product offering and generate significant synergies in the longer term.” For more information please see the attached pdf.

The design collaboration between Marimekko and Finnair takes a new step as a Finnair Airbus 330 will soon feature a previously unseen blue colorway of Marimekko’s classic Unikko (“poppy”) print. The plane will fly from Finnair’s Helsinki hub to the airline’s long-haul destinations starting from the end of 2014, joining a sister aircraft painted in a different Unikko colorway in 2012.  “During this year we have been celebrating the fifty years of our most iconic pattern Unikko all over the world, reminding people of its story of courage and faith in oneself. We are very excited to continue the celebrations and our design partnership together with Finnair with the new Anniversary Unikko that will fly on the sides of Finnair’s Airbus 330, delighting people around the world,” says Tiina Alahuhta-Kasko, Marimekko’s COO. “For the celebration and as a continuation of our wonderful partnership with Finnair, Unikko also now has been given a special blue colorway, inspired by Finland's thousands of lakes and beautiful, clean nature.” “We are excited to build on and extend our partnership with Marimekko, a great Finnish company that has long shared our values and vision," says Finnair CEO Pekka Vauramo.  "Our two aircraft wearing the beloved Unikko livery are flying ambassadors of Finnish know-how, positivity and creativity. They make a proud statement as they soar toward the great cities of Asia, where both companies see a bright future.” The design collaboration between Marimekko and Finnair began in 2012 and Marimekko for Finnair textiles and tableware were brought to all of the Finnish airline’s aircraft in 2013. The collection was designed according to the airline’s needs by Marimekko designer Sami Ruotsalainen, in original Marimekko patterns by Maija Isola. The blue, green and grey colours and the classic prints used in the collection tell the story of Finnish nature and recall the perspective of looking out from an aircraft window, flying high above the landscape. Notes to editors About the Unikko print: Unikko ("poppy"), one of Marimekko’s most beloved classic patterns, was born in 1964 as a protest against Marimekko´s founder Armi Ratia, who had announced that Marimekko would not print any floral patterns, because flowers were more beautiful in nature than on fabric. Designer Maija Isola refused to obey Armi and created an entire series of floral prints. One of them was Unikko, which rapidly became a firm favourite and has stayed in production for already fifty years. To celebrate this five-decade milestone and the design collaboration between Marimekko and Finnair, a special anniversary version of the iconic pattern in a new, custom colorway will feature on a Finnair Airbus 330. About Finnair: Finnair flies between Asia, Europe and North America with an emphasis on fast connections via Helsinki, carrying more than nine million passengers annually and connecting 15 cities in Asia with more than 60 destinations in Europe. The airline, a pioneer in sustainable flying, will be the European launch customer of the next-generation, eco-smart Airbus A350 XWB aircraft and is the first airline listed in the Leadership Index of the worldwide Carbon Disclosure Project. The only Nordic carrier with a 4-star Skytrax ranking, Finnair has also won the World Airline Award for Best Airline Northern Europe for the past five years running. Finnair is a member of oneworld, the alliance of the world's leading airlines committed to providing the highest level of service and convenience to frequent international travellers.
