It is now the world’s largest food business, with operations in 50 countries and annual revenues of £13bn. According to yesterday’s numbers, things are going from strength to strength.Momentum is clearly on the firm’s side. Organic sales grew 0.4 per cent in the first half, and five per cent in the second. Revenues in the North American region, Compass’ biggest, grew by 5.5 per cent over the full-year, against 2.8 per cent in the first six months. Sales in Europe were flat, with trading particularly tough in the UK, but Brazil and Australia helped the rest of the world grow revenues by six per cent. The firm is also dripping in cash, with free cash flow of £650m and net debt of around £700m. It will likely move to a net cash position soon, leaving it free to return cash to shareholders or buy bolt-on targets.The global food services market, worth £200bn a year, is ripe for consolidation. Just 40 per cent is currently outsourced, and Compass has just seven per cent of the fragmented market, but at this rate, it will soon have much more.

OnlineCNN’s Christiane Amanpour Undergoes Surgery After Cancer DiagnosisE! OnlineUndoTo avoid a conflict of interest, the captain may also be denied any say in the selection of a player, who is managed by the same agency that takes care of the skipper’s commercial interest. For example, if the rule were in force in the present scenario Kohli could not have expressed his opinion or asked for the selection of KL Rahul, Kuldeep Yadav or Ajinkya Rahane as the trio along with the skipper is managed by the same management agency – Cornerstone.Also Read: IPL 2019: Hotstar increases sponsorship price tag by 70%IPL 2019: Netflix to stream documentary – Cricket Fever : Mumbai IndiansIPL 2019: Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer is a magician tooICC World Cup 2019: Full schedule, live streaming, live telecast & TV channel, broadcasting…The BCCI reportedly may enforce the clause to ask the captains of the Indian national teams to declare that they have no direct or indirect commercial interest if the agency that manages the captain is also managing some other member(s) of the team.A group in the BCCI is pressing to enforce the clause under the conflict of interest provisions.  The coaches, commentators, support staff, administrators, and BCCI employees are already being asked to give an undertaking about a possible conflict of interests. There is a call to cover the captains under the same provision.Some hardliners have reportedly also suggested that if an agency is managing the Indian captain, it should not be allowed to manage other players from the team.The Justice (retd) R M Lodha Committee had also advised the BCCI to keep the player-agent relationship out of conflict.“The committee has clearly mentioned in the recommendations on how to keep the player-agent relationship out of conflicts. If the reforms are used as per their convenience, it will lead to nothing. You can’t use the reforms in bits and pieces. Everyone who is involved with the game should be conflict free and that is the essence of the recommendations. You have to disclose all the conflicts and that includes the captain, coach, commentators, support staff, administrators, managers, employees, agents and other stakeholder of the game,” Justice Lodha told TOI on Monday.The conflict rules in the BCCI state that no commercial interest should be allowed to be pursued – be it by a BCCI employee or cricketer. However, the newly drafted BCCI constitution doesn’t have a provision for taking an undertaking from players.Also Read: IPL: Bachchans in talks to acquire stake in Rajasthan RoyalsIPL 2019: Star India starts strongly with 9 brands, ₹750 crore in ad salesSix: ‘A Midnight Clear’ adaptation of an IPL love storyIPL 2019: Taproot Dentsu strikes it big to eliminate Oglivy India TAGSAjinkya RahaneBCCIBCCI commercial interestsBCCI commercialsKL RAHULKuldip YadavVirat Kohli SHARE Previous articleEuropean Tour enters data partnership with IMG ArenaNext articleDrought may take toll on IPL 2019 schedule: Report Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

All Blacks will go to Christchurch in World Cup

first_imgThe All Blacks will spend five days training in Christchurch in the build up to their decisive Rugby World Cup 2011 Pool A encounter with France, a change of schedule that captain Richie McCaw has labelled “awesome”.The damage caused by last month’s devastating earthquake resulted in the city losing the seven matches it had been due to host during Rugby’s showpiece tournament, a decision reluctantly taken by Tournament partners last week.The All Blacks will now fly to Christchurch on 17 September, a day after they face Japan in Hamilton, and return to Auckland later in the week to prepare for the match with France at Eden Park on 24 September.“Christchurch has always been a great host city for the team and it’s awesome that we’ve got the opportunity to come back and spend time with our fans in Christchurch,” admitted McCaw. “As soon as the announcement was made that Christchurch would not be hosting any Rugby World Cup games we started making plans to take the team to the city during the tournament and we are delighted that we are now able to make it happen,” explained All Blacks manager Darren Shand.“As we all know, the Canterbury region is a rugby stronghold, the All Blacks have a massive fan base there and many people are doing it tough so we want to give something back.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img “It certainly will make a huge difference to the players – especially those of us who live here – and we hope the fans enjoy it as well.”McCaw and All Blacks assistant coach Steve Hansen revealed the plan during a visit to New Brighton Catholic School in Christchurch.

Japan 2019: the top 10 sightseeing spots and historical attractions in Kyushu

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Iconic: Kumamoto Castle is a magnificent 17th-century citadel famous for its ingenius defensive features Supporters going to the 2019 Rugby World Cup face some tricky decisions. With so many spectacular things to see on the island of Kyushu, how will they fit everything in? Advertising featureJapan 2019: the top 10 sightseeing spots and historical attractions in KyushuRugby World Cup 2019 will be held in Japan for the first time, starting on 20 September. With the country set to be under the international spotlight, Kyushu in particular will be on many rugby fans’ watch list and makes an ideal destination of choice in Japan.The island of Kyushu is located in the west of Japan and is home to seven different prefectures. You’ll find Fukuoka, Kumamoto, Nagasaki, Oita and Saga in the north, with Kagoshima and Miyazaki further south.With many of the top-ranked rugby nations either based in Kyushu or visiting the island during the tournament, UK fans hoping to catch England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland will want to plan a trip to this part of Japan. The All Blacks and Wallabies are also playing here, not to mention a couple of the quarter-finals, so all eyes will be on Kyushu from September.With this in mind, Kyushu promises to enthral rugby fans when they arrive in the build-up to the World Cup. To help you figure out what the island is all about, dive into the top 10 sightseeing spots and historical attractions in Kyushu, Japan…1. Sengan-en and Sakurajima in KagoshimaBuilt in 1658 by one of the most powerful clans from the Edo period, the Shimazu clan, the Sengan-en estate comprises beautiful gardens and the central Iso Residence. Along with neighbouring Shoko Shuseikan, Sengan-en earned UNESCO status in July 2015.The residence provides an insight into how many generations of the Shimazu family lived their lives. A tour of the many different rooms is recommended, with the inner garden and study’s view of the outside garden being highlights.Garden of tranquillity: Sengan-en, the home of the Shimazu family, dates back to the 17th centurySengan-en is located on the western edge of Kagoshima Bay – known locally as Kinko Bay – just to the north of Kagoshima’s city centre.As well as providing a pleasant walk around the inner gardens and ponds, Sengan-en makes a fantastic vantage point from which to admire the Sakurajima volcano out at sea. This active volcano and former island (now connected to the mainland) can occasionally be seen erupting on a small scale, and it blends into the gardens’ design like a real-life painting.Definitely take time to marvel at some local craftsmanship at the Shimadzu Satsuma Kiriko Gallery Shop, before finishing up by trying the local Jambo-mochi specialty, a rice cake with sweet soy or miso sauce.Access: 20 minutes by bus from Kagoshima Chuo Station.2. Aoshima island in MiyazakiJust south of Miyazaki City, Aoshima island is connected to the mainland by a short pedestrian bridge. The island is covered in subtropical jungle and in the centre is Aoshima Shrine, which is believed to bring good luck to couples.Rocky ribs: the unique basalt formations on Aoshima Island that are dubbed the ‘Devil’s Washboard’It’s also characterised by its beaming vermillion torii gate that welcomes visitors, as well as the unique basalt rock formations surrounding the island. Known as the ‘Devil’s Washboard’, these naturally-occurring striated rocks were formed by ancient lava flows. This phenomenon is a marvel to behold as they stretch into the distance out at sea.Access: Aoshima Station is about a 30-minute train ride south of Miyazaki. It’s a 10-minute walk to the coast to reach the island itself.Check out Aoshima at the start of this video, which shows many of the charms of Kyushu…3. Yufuin area in OitaYufuin is comparable to one of Japan’s other famous retreats, Karuizawa, offering secluded nature (including Lake Kinrin), small arts and craft shops, art museums, cafes and local delicacies surrounded by gorgeous nature and the backdrop of Mount Yufu.Nearby Yunohira Onsen is a worthy attraction too. Located in a picturesque, secluded valley, this magical area offers a moment of tranquillity to those looking for a relaxing and soothing hot-spring experience.Access: Yufuin’s central area, including Lake Kinrin, is a 20-minute walk east of the station, following a main walking route. Yufuin can be reached from Beppu (80 minutes, transfer at Oita), with a Kumamoto-bound bus also calling at Yufuin on its journey from Beppu.Relax: you can enjoy shopping, dining and beautiful scenery in Yufuin, with its Mount Yufu backdrop4. Seven Hells of Beppu – onsen with a difference in Oita prefectureBeppu stands out as a top Kyushu location in Oita prefecture, thanks to the unique ‘Hells of Beppu’, or Jigoku. These are seven hot-spring locations with a difference! Aimed more at sightseeing than actual bathing, each thermal pond promises a unique view to enjoy.From the cobalt-blue Sea Hell to the deep-red Blood Hell, the bubbling Mud Hell or the Spout Hell with its hot geyser that naturally shoots up every 30-40 minutes, the Hells of Beppu present Japan’s onsen culture in a remarkable light.For those also looking to relax, Beppu’s culture of naturally heated sand baths is well worth checking out, offered at several locations around the city. TAGS: Japan Access: Locations are spread out around Beppu. The five hells in the Kannawa area are all reachable by foot from Kannawa bus terminal (15-minute ride from JR Beppu Station). The last two – Chinoike Jigoku stop, and also near Tatsumaki Jigoku – can be reached by a further bus ride from Kannawa.Boiling point: the ‘Spout Hell’ at Tatsumaki Jigoku is part of a spectacular series of hot springs at Beppu5. Aso region of KumamotoMount Aso, in Kumamoto, is an active volcano with one of the world’s largest calderas. One of its five craters, at Nakadake, has great access by both rental car or the Mount Aso Ropeway and overlooks the Kusasenri plain, where you can see cows and horses grazing on the sprawling grassy land.The volcanic activity makes for great hot springs, with the most popular being Uchinomaki Hot Spring and Kurokawa Onsen, on the edge of the Aso region. Kurokawa Onsen, in particular, enjoys popularity thanks to its traditional atmosphere and ryokans (inns).Access: The Aso area can be reached by bus from central Kumamoto (2 hours) and also head to Oita/Beppu.Majestic: Mount Aso, one of the world’s largest calderas, lies in the breathtaking Aso-Kuji National Park6. Dazaifu Tenmangu ShrineDedicated to Sugawara Michizane, this historical sacred site in Fukuoka is one of Japan’s most important Tenmangu shrines. A number of features are worth looking out for on a visit here, including the Shinji pond (resembling the character for ‘heart’ or ‘shin’) and the Taiko bridge, whose three sections represent the past, the present and the future.And for those thinking of the future, with Michizane becoming a deity of education, Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine has enjoyed popularity amongst students. They are often seen visiting to pray for good grades and success in their exams and future career. With the Rugby World Cup likely to present a searching examination for many of the tournament’s younger players, the jury’s out on whether this luck will carry over to the rugby scores!Access: Five-minute walk from Dazaifu Station, which is about 30 minutes south of central Fukuoka by train.Pray for success: the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine honours a god of education and attracts countless students7. Takachiho GorgeLocated in a land known for being the home of Japan’s mythical legends, Takachiho Gorge in Miyazaki represents the perfect ‘power spot’ – a location thought to be flowing with mystical energy – thanks to its dragon scale-esque rocky basalt cliffs, waterfalls and emerald waters.Set to a backdrop of dense foliage that this valley provides, several points along the Gokase River walking route here provide great views of Minainotaki waterfall. If you want to get a closer perspective, try renting a boat to row down the river.Access: From Miyazaki, take a limited express train (80 min) to Nobeoka Station before transferring to a bus bound (90 min) for Takachiho Bus Centre. From central Kumamoto, take a bus (3 hours) bound for Takachiho Bus Centre, which stops by Kumamoto Airport en route.Mystical: Takachiho Gorge, a taste of ancient Japan, features vivid greenery and 100m-high basalt cliffs8. Kumamoto CastleKumamoto Castle is one of the country’s top three castles and one of the best examples of a defensive fortress seen in modern Japan. Although major earthquakes in April 2016 caused considerable damage to a number of turrets and keeps, restoration is well under way and the site is still worth a visit for its sheer scale, even if the central areas cannot be accessed.Built in 1607 by daimyo Kato Kiyomasa, it has become well-known for its advanced defensive features, such as sloping castle walls almost impossible to scale, iron spikes at entrances, and a unique inner layout and survival tricks designed to withstand siege conditions.While there may be few practical takeaways for any World Cup team hoping to defend against the top-ranked teams, Kumamoto Castle’s sheer ingenuity in defensive thinking will surely inspire the lesser-ranked teams looking to steal a result or two!Access: Kumamoto Castle is about a 15-minute tram ride from Kumamoto Station.Not to be missed: Kumamoto Castle, one of the three famous daimyo castles in Japan, is being restored9. Kyushu’s first! Kyushu’s largest ‘Matsuri in Kyushu’ in Kumamoto!The ‘Matsuri in Kyushu’ festival is a great opportunity to enjoy the 40 festivals in the region of Kyushu and Yamaguchi at once in Kumamoto. This festival is held for supporters going to the 2019 Rugby World Cup and promises to showcase the Japan you have not known or can’t experience normally. In addition, you can buy various special products of Kyushu there.Date: Sat 28-Sun 29 September 2019Access: Kumamoto city centre.Magical experience: the ‘Matsuri in Kyushu’ festival is being staged for fans attending the World Cup10.
