One FTSE 100 reopening stock I’m avoiding

first_img Enter Your Email Address One FTSE 100 reopening stock I’m avoiding Image source: Getty Images Whitbread (LSE:WTB) might seem like the perfect FTSE 100 stock for me to pick up as the UK’s economy continues to reopen. The company owns Premier Inn and a range of branded restaurants and bars. This should allow Whitbread to benefit from people taking UK holidays and going out to eat and drink.Or should it? A lot of investors had this idea back in February as the UK emerged from winter and bought into ‘reopening’ stocks. One of these was Whitbread and this resulted in its share price flying to around the 3,500 mark.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Since that time, shares in the FTSE 100 company have fallen to 3,046. Full-year 2021 financials released at the end of last month showed a loss of £1bn for the year and a 71.5% drop in revenue. A tough year but not unexpected because of the pandemic.The big reopeningThe problem for Whitbread is that it won’t benefit drastically from the reopening compared with other FTSE 100 companies. Premier Inn is a major driver of revenue for the company, with locations across the UK, Germany, and the Middle East. However, customers are split evenly between business and leisure. With business travel not recovering to pre-pandemic levels, there won’t be an immediate uplift in numbers here. The company stated that it doesn’t expect this to change until offices reopen in earnest.For leisure, only 15% of Whitbread’s hotel estate is in coastal and other tourist locations. As a result, its revenues won’t receive a major boost from the ‘staycation’ boom expected in the UK.On top of this, the food and drink segment of the business is closely aligned with its hotel business. The restaurants are generally located within or next to a Premier Inn. This means that the boom in food and drinks sales expected this summer may not arrive for Whitbread without higher numbers of hotel stays.FTSE 100 long-term play?For these reasons, I don’t see Whitbread as a short- or medium-term investment to benefit from the UK economy reopening. On the other hand, I could see it as a potential option for a long-term investment.The FTSE 100 company does benefit from being well placed as the largest hotel operator in the UK. It is aiming to expand internationally, focusing on Germany where it plans to more than double its footprint from 30 to 72 hotels. Its balance sheet is also particularly strong, with only £46.5m in net debt and cash reserves of £1.25bn.Whitbread’s share price also hasn’t fully recovered from where it was pre-pandemic at around 4,000p. This means that if the numbers of people staying at its hotels return to pre-pandemic levels and profitability improves, there could be a pop in the share price.But I don’t see this playing out in 2021. As a result, I will be staying away from Whitbread for now. But I’ll potentially return for another look once the sector is on a stronger path to recovery.

England U20 to play Baby Blacks in Junior Final

first_img England U20 v New Zealand U20 IRB Junior Championship Final 2011England stand between New Zealand and a fourth successive IRB Junior World Championship title after both sides came through tough battles with France and Australia respectively at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo in Treviso, Italy, on Wednesday.Runners up in 2008 and 2009, England were the first to book their place in Sunday’s final after digging deep to overcome France 33-18 in a semi final that was as tight and tense as expected. Tries from Christian Wade, the outstanding George Ford, Ben Ransom and captain Alex Gray saw England to victory, but they were made to work hard by France for a ninth consecutive victory under coach Rob Hunter this year.New Zealand were not given an easy ride by Australia in the other semi final, despite a seemingly one-sided looking 37-7 scoreline, with their opponents a far tougher prospect than that beaten 62-17 by the Baby Blacks in last year’s final in Argentina.Australia opened the scoring through Chris Kuridrani after starving the champions of possession early on, but with Gareth Anscombe directing play New Zealand responded with 37 unanswered points to make it 19 matches unbeaten in the Championship’s history.Away from the semi finals, Fiji sprung the surprise of the day by beating Wales 34-20 to earn a fifth place play-off against South Africa, the 57-15 conquerors of Ireland, and with it their best ever finish.Scotland, meanwhile, picked up their first win of the tournament by beating Tonga 30-11 and they will now face Argentina for ninth after they held on to beat hosts Italy 12-8.A fourth successive defeat at JWC 2011 means that Italy and Tonga now face each other in a must-win match with the loser relegated to the IRB Junior World Rugby Trophy for 2012 to be replaced by Samoa.England U20 captain Alex Gray said: “To be involved in any final is a massive honour, the boys have worked so hard to get to where we are. We started out as a group back in September with the ultimate aim of winning both the 6 Nations and the Junior World Championships. We won the 6 Nations back in March and now we’ve got a chance of winning the JWC.“The semi-final against France was tough, as we always knew it would be. They gave us a good game in the 6 Nations and they were only going to get better.  We’re delighted to pull the win out of the bag though, they made it a bit nervy for us at times, but fortunately we held out for the win.“We can’t wait for the final now – New Zealand have an aura about them but they definitely aren’t unbeatable. They sweat, they bleed – they’re human, so if we go out there with the right game plan then I’m confident we can give them a run for their money. A final is a one off game, it’s all or nothing rugby and we’ve got a chance.“It will be my last game as an Under 20 player and I expect it will be pretty emotional. It’s been a long run, and a few of us have played together since we were with the Under 16s so it just gives us an added incentive to pull out all the stops when we play the Baby Blacks.” PADOVA, ITALY – JUNE 18: New Zealand perform the Haka during the IRB Junior World Championship match between Argentina and New Zealand at Plebiscito Stadium on June 18, 2011 in Padova, Italy. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images)TREVISO, ITALY – JUNE 22: England line up prior to the IRB Junior World Championship semi match between England and France at the Stadio Communale di Monigo on June 22, 2011 in Treviso, Italy. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Leicester Tigers fly half George Ford: “It was a really tough game against the French, but we prepared well and executed our game plan pretty well. France are a physical side who have an air of unpredictability so it was really pleasing to get the four tries and secure the win. They caught us out on a couple of occasions which made it close but we pulled through in the end.“It was nice to go over for my try – I don’t get many, but the phase play in the build up was excellent. We’ve got players who don’t know when to give up and the forwards looked after the ball very well and things just opened up for me, but there’s no way I’m taking any of the credit – it was a massive team effort.“We know that were in for a tough match against New Zealand in the final, but anyone can beat anyone on their day so we’ll prepare as well as we can and look to produce our best rugby. It will be our last game together as a group and we want to give it absolutely everything.“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing in the Junior World Championship. It’s a valuable experience and to be able to test yourself against the best players from across the world will stand us all in good stead in the future.”Saracens prop Mako Vunipola: “We went into the game knowing that France would be up for it, and they were. We played them in the 6 Nations but they upped their game for the semi-final and gave us a scare, but overall our hard work paid off.“The lead changed hands on a few occasions and maybe they surprised us a little bit, but we knew that they would come at us for the first 50 minutes and we had to weather the storm. Our defence held out and our attackers were clinical when it mattered, so I think we deserved it in the end.“New Zealand in the final will be a huge test for all of us, but they’re beatable – every team is beatable, no one has a right to win a game.  It’s our last game together as a group so we will be leaving absolutely everything out on the pitch and hopefully that will be enough, we’re just going to go for it.”London Irish centre Guy Armitage: “It was a great honour to be named in the starting line up for the semi, it was my first start so it was a bit of a baptism of fire but I enjoyed every minute of it. Having played France in the 6 Nations we weren’t totally in the dark about what they were about, but it was important not to get complacent and I think we showed real professionalism with our performance, we got the job done and we look ahead to the final now. “New Zealand did very well in their group stages, but Argentina and Australia have both given them good games, so we’ll be studying the videos and plotting a game plan to try and beat them – it’s a huge game for us and there’s a lot of excitement in the camp.“I got a good luck text from Delon (Armitage) before the game yesterday which was a nice touch, and I’m pleased for him to be named in the initial training squad ahead of the seniors World Cup, but for now I’m focusing on our final!” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Dan Carter breaks the million pound transfer-window

first_imgDan Carter, the world’s most marketable fly-half has signed on the dotted line for a cool £1.25m three-year deal, as another milestone in professional rugby has been reached Moving on: Johnny Sexton has done his time at RacingBut Racing are an ambitious team, who plan to move into a hyper-modern mothership of a stadium in the centre of Paris. They don’t want convention and they don’t want dull. However his form is, Carter will be hauled out. Over and over again. Get his face out there, fill stands, get shirt sales, and get Jacky that “economic benefit”, baby.See, while Carter had some time out to travel, kiss babies and flog credit cards as he saw out a sabbatical not so long ago, no one forgot who he was or what he has done. He made his long-awaited start for the All Blacks against Scotland recently and with a few tackles, 29 passes and just three kicks out of hand, it felt more like the game was going on around him, but his track record is unquestionable. Scrap that. It’s highly marketable.He has 1,457 Test points – more than any other player. He has 102 caps. He has beaten Australia 18 times, South Africa 14 and England ten. He is the top points scorer in Super Rugby history. He has won titles with the Crusaders. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Exodus: Wallaby James Horwill will follow Carter to Europe as the Southern Hemisphere is drained of playersSo for all of this, you have to concede that if anyone was going to net such a pay day, it was probably going to be Carter. He may not be the fleet-footed player he was and he has a tough job ousting Aaron Cruden from the All Blacks starting line-up in 2015. But after a career of being a demi-God on New Zealand’s south island, maybe we’ll not begrudge him the move. Players like him and Australian lock James Horwill (who is joining Harlequins) coming over to ply their trade in Europe aren’t the bad guys; they are just the high-profile foot soldiers in an ever-expanding war for your attention. It may feel a bit dirty, but rugby is only going to get more hyped, more flashy, more costly.Dan Carter has bought into that in a big way. And as he has, maybe even someone as celebrated will be willing to adhere to Racing’s club rules and live on the outskirts of Paris, away from all the distracting bright lights. There’s enough of that in the fly-half’s life already. Thanks for everything: Dan Carter and NZ CEO Steve Tew will leave on amicable terms IT’S THE numbers that get you gasping.Dan Carter is off to join Racing Metro in Paris on a three-year deal in the aftermath of the World Cup. If the rumours are to be believed, Carter could earn as much as £1m per year. Just to set that into context, he would be the first ever rugby player to earn that much through a single contract – what he would also earn as an ambassador for undercrackers and global sporting brands is anyone’s guess.Want more context? Versatile sometime-fly-half JJ Hanrahan is allegedly considering a new €150,000-a-year deal with Munster, so you could stretch to saying Carter is worth over seven Hanrahans.The man holding Racing’s purse strings, property mogul Jacky Lorenzetti, told the press on Thursday: “Carter will be the best-paid player at Racing but also the least expensive because of the economic benefits.” And it is easy to understand what is meant by “benefits”.Open-field: Dan Carter will leave a the top international points scorer in historyThe incumbent marquee fly-half at Racing is Jonny Sexton. He is out at the moment with head problems, and reports say he could be out until mid-February. By that time he will be ensconced in the Ireland set-up. For their outlay, Racing haven’t been able to churn out as much rugby as they would have liked from the playmaker and in World Cup year, in his last season before returning to Leinster, Sexton will be gunning for success in green. The upside is Carter will not have distractions during an international window next season.It is unfortunate, rather than malicious, that Sexton won’t play week after week for Racing. However, with All Black centurion Carter severing ties with the New Zealand national team it means he can play whenever called-upon. Now, this will be Carter’s second stint in France and we all know he had a near allergic reaction to the word “fit” last time he played in the Top 14 – he made only five appearances for Perpignan.last_img read more

Tropical Storm Emily: Where did this come from?

Note that impacts (particularly heavy rain, high surf, coastal flooding) with any tropical cyclone may spread beyond its forecast path. August 1, 2017 at 6:37 pm Mama Mia Reply Emily developed from a small area of low pressure along a washed-out front. Tropical Storm Emily has made landfall along Florida’s Gulf Coast in the Tampa/St. Petersburg metro area, and is already wringing out flooding rain over parts of the Florida peninsula.(MORE: Hurricane Central)The center of Emily moved ashore at 10:45 a.m. EDT on Anna Maria Island, near Bradenton, with estimated maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. August 1, 2017 at 6:46 pm While soil moisture isn’t anomalously high for this time of year, rain rates of 1 to 3 inches per hour are possible in the heaviest rainbands, capable of triggering flash flooding or, at the very least, widespread ponding of water on roads.This is obviously a more widespread threat of heavy rain than you see on a typical afternoon of scattered thunderstorms in Florida’s wet season.This will add to what’s been a rather wet summer in parts of the Sunshine State. According to the Southeast Regional Climate Center, Gainesville and Naples, Florida, have each had their record-wettest summers (since June 1) to date through July 29.Little strengthening is expected once the system is over the Atlantic Ocean, and it should remain off the rest of the East Coast and not have any impacts beyond Florida.Where Did This Come From?Twitter follower BeasleyParker probably summed up the feelings of many upon hearing the news early Monday.Most landfalling tropical cyclones come with at least 24 hours advance warning, usually more.This all started with a cold front that dropped south into the northern Gulf of Mexico during the weekend, then stalled out.You don’t typically see cold fronts penetrate that far south this deep in the summer. The end of July is typically hazy, hot and humid in the Southeast U.S., not featuring strangely comfortable air masses plunging from Canada into the Deep South.(MORE: 7 Odd Things We Saw in the Weather in Late July)Early in the hurricane season, these old fronts are typically monitored closely for tropical development.Ripples of low pressure can form along these stationary fronts and, if thunderstorms cluster near those surface low-pressure ripples, a tropical depression or storm can quickly form.In Emily’s case, a swirl of low pressure was evident on radar and satellite imagery Sunday morning about 100 miles south of Pensacola, Florida.Sunday night, thunderstorms near the circulation became more vigorous and concentrated, with several cloud-to-ground lightning strikes documented, as it moved east-southeast. Mama Mia Reply July 31, 2017 at 5:04 pm Reply Reply July 31, 2017 at 4:57 pm The White House storm continues also. Anthony Scaramucci is now out. Can’t say I am the least bit surprised. This is a never- ending soap opera happening daily at the Trump White House. Anthony had said after the backlash of his vulgar talk and interview to the NewYorker that his mistake was trusting the reporter and that it won’t happen again. Anthony, it won’t happen again, you got that part right, but Anthony’s mistake was not trusting the reporter, it was his own mouth, and he just doesn’t get that, even now….I read that his wife has filed for divorce from him, due to his loyality to Trump, and he was angry that the divorce talk was in the news. Another couple divorced due to differences in Trump politics, a Trump loving wife and her husband, a wealthy Democratic prosecutor who didn’t like Trump. Will Scaramucci’s marriage be saved now that he is out of the White House?….Stayed tuned for the next soap opera episode. Will the Trump White House run out of politicians to re-cycle? Reply Mama Mia Isn’t it something to know our president thinks the White House is a dump? He must of been confused as to his actual whereabouts….. the city dump trucks were lined up loaded with sand, and parked across in front of his Trump Tower, not the White House. Must of been one of his “senior moments”…….where he got confused again. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Seriously, is anyone safe from the madness of Trump? So he now turns his focus onto the top military commander over the Afghanistan war and is talking about firing him because we aren’t winning the war, according to Trump? This is no longer fun and games…….I fear for our troops, and what Trump might do and if he does replace that guy, who will he replace him with, and will he have rock solid war experience or just be someone appointed on Trump’s whim. This is getting really bad for our country, and he seems to want to go to war with everybody! Impeachment can’t come soon enough in my opinion. This man is leading our country down the toilet. Mama Mia Uh oh…..I take it back. I think Sara Huckabee Sanders will be the next one fired, instead of Bannon. LOL.

TV reports claim Congress has him blocked from firing Mueller. Think that is what I heard, not sure. He sure wants to fire him, still wants to fire Sessions, and everybody else apparently. Cuckoo, cuckoo……how bad is it going to get from here on??? Current Radar, Satellite, Watches and WarningsWatches and warnings are issued by the National Weather Service. By Monday morning, utilizing Doppler radar from the National Weather Service office in Ruskin, Florida, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center determined this previous ripple of low pressure had enough persistent showers and thunderstorms with strong enough winds to name it Tropical Depression Six.Just two hours later, Doppler velocity data indicated winds had ticked upward enough to bump the system to Tropical Storm Emily.The poster child recent “developing quickly” tropical system in the Gulf happened almost 10 years ago, once again, involving an old frontal boundary.On September 12, 2007, a system went from a Tropical Depression just over 100 miles south of Galveston, Texas, to Category 1 landfalling Hurricane Humberto less than 24 hours later.Because Humberto formed and intensified so rapidly, warnings were issued with far less lead time than usual. Tropical storm warnings were issued 16 hours before landfall, but hurricane warnings came only two hours before landfall.Humberto was a classic example of how difficult it can be for forecasters to anticipate rapid strengthening and issue appropriate alerts to the public.Despite the short warning, Humberto’s impact was limited to one death and about $50 million in damage, striking a sparsely-populated area of the coast east of Houston. Mama Mia Tropical Storm Emily moved ashore along central Florida’s Gulf Coast Monday morning. It will quickly move inland over Florida today, then into the Atlantic waters off Florida on Tuesday. Heavy rain and flash flooding are the main threats. Reply Mama Mia I never thought I would find myself actually feelin’ sorry for “poor” Anthony Scaramucci, but after reading the New York Post last night, oh my gosh, “poor” Anthony! Trump really screwed him over! Anthony had put his financial business on the market for sale to comply with the conflict of interest laws in order to take the White House job as communication director, that he has been ousted from. The sale is pending and his part is due 80 million, which will be subject to a 20% capital gain tax of 16 million owed for taxes….YIKES!…..and the article explains in detail if he doesn’t get another job at the WH, it will have to be paid, as there is some clause about having to keep the WH job for a certain time, etc. and he was only in there 10 days and wasn’t even on the official payroll at that time. Trump reportedly “feels bad” about it all (uh-huh) and might give Scaramucci another WH job, but Scaramucci is not optimistic about it happening. The poor billionaire! Also I am sure he has high- powered divorce lawyers jumping up and down at his wife’s beckoning waiting to get the rest of the best of his $$$$$…….I wouldn’t judge poor Scaramucci now if he goes on a profanity laced tirade……the soap opera continues……. Reply Reply I have been watching all the cloud cover on the radar and keep waiting for the storm bands, and I am wondering is it coming or is it passing by us here in Apopka? I keep thinking how are we missing it with that many cloud bands on the radar? Strange. Fine with me if it passes us over, as I don’t want storm damage to have to deal with. I sat through 4 hurricanes that one year alone as my husband was out working and was not retired then. It got frightening at times during the night, with the wind howling and the pounding rain on the doors, windows, and roof, and I couldn’t tell what was going on in the street with the neighbor’s homes, as it was too dark. Also sometimes it is just a matter of getting used to seeing something new, and getting your eyes adjusted to something different, like when you first see a neighbor paint their home a different color, then you get adjusted to the “shock” over time….LOL I think it is the same with this mural at Mt. Dora. August 2, 2017 at 8:49 am The Mt. Dora oppressive art critic/ city officials that are demanding the mural be painted over back to a solid colored wall……yes, this demand from the town council that allowed the entire Mt. Dora downtown to be painted a icky shade of pepto-bismo hot pink, LOL, Honky Tonk Freeway anyone? Give the mural artist a chance to finish his mural on the wall……often times murals look totally different when finished rather than only half way completed…..geesh. According to the news story, the owner got permission to have it painted. I was very distressed to read about the poor bait dog found in Apopka that had been used and horribly abused, in the dog fighting. It makes me sick to my stomach that there are people like that here among our residents. I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t the same bunch arrested in the dog fighting bust before, when former Police Chief Manley was in charge. I remember how distressed and upset Mayor Land’s wife was when she heard that dog fighting was happening in our town, and she wanted something done, and was terribly upset. I feel the same way. I can’t stand it when children and animals are abused. Sickening! I hope they get caught soon! And I really hate to say it, but honestly, I think the poor bait dog would be better off if they would give her a sedative and after she falls to sleep, then give her a fatal needle and put her down, not because she is not worth the efforts, no, that is not it, it is I personally do not want her to experience any more suffering in this cruel world, and let her go peacefully and to heaven. As I said before, I had to have my big dog put down, and I know how peacefully he left this world, and that although it was hard to finally make up my mind to do it, it was the right thing to do. I recently got a nice card from the vet in the mail, and she wrote me a personal note, and told me that C-Boy was a tough cookie, (he was) and that I had given him a good home and let him be himself, and that I did the right thing, at the right time, and that he was at peace. Of course I cried again, but she was right, and I appreciate her card very much. AlertsA watch is issued when tropical storm or hurricane conditions are possible within 48 hours. A warning is issued when those conditions are expected within 36 hours.

I was like, “you mean a pre-hurricane, or a hurricane, and when did that start up?” Emily is a sneaky one. Reply August 2, 2017 at 8:29 am and………..the very best defense I have heard, to date, is offered up by the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who stated that “they were too disorganized to collude with the Russians.” I am ashamed to find myself somehow believing him…LOL A spotter in Hillsborough County near Valrico measured over 8 inches of rain, so far as of just before 1 p.m. EDT. Street flooding prompted a closure of a stretch of Ninth Street, according to the spotter.Heavy Rain ForecastThe threat of heavy rain isn’t a function of how strong a tropical cyclone is, but rather how slowly it moves.Emily will cross the Florida Peninsula and exit into the Atlantic well north of the northwest Bahamas by early Tuesday.

The event is a closed road central London run and will be the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster.A minimum of 3,750 places will be taken by other charities. Runners will start on Pall Mall, finish by Downing Street and take in some of London’s most well-known landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye.The route has taken 18 months to plan with Tommy’s launching it with the support of Westminster City Council and the City of London Corporation. A launch event to introduce the event to other charities took place on 2nd February, followed by an application process for places. Applications are now closed, but the event website will launch fully in April with an information section for charities still interested in participating, and more places may be released later in the year.The event will also deliver a pan-London community engagement programme and involve London-wide schools, boroughs, community groups, cultural organisations, sports clubs and businesses in developing the event and on the day.Lia Bowman, race director at Tommy’s, told UK Fundraising:“In 2014 we embarked on a strategy to double our organisational income. After evaluating the different options available to us for raising more funds, we decided to launch an event and with our offices based in the City, noticed a gap in the market for a marathon that takes in the City and its landmarks.”Jane Brewin, chief executive at Tommy’s, also commented: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

British journalist without press visa treated like criminal on arrival in Los Angeles

first_img June 3, 2021 Find out more News June 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders wrote to US homeland security secretary Tom Ridge today to complain about the detention of British freelance journalist Elena Lappin on her arrival at Los Angeles international airport on 3 May and her expulsion yesterday for not having a press visa. May 5, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 British journalist without press visa treated like criminal on arrival in Los Angeles News Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says United StatesAmericas Receive email alerts to go further News April 28, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United States Help by sharing this information WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists News United StatesAmericas NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say “Subjected to a body search, handcuffed and locked up… this journalist was treated like a criminal,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard protested in the letter. Ménard pointed out that 12 other journalists were arrested and treated in the same fashion by immigration officials at Los Angeles airport in 2003, and then expelled, whereas only one such case was reported at any other US airport. “Los Angeles immigration officials should urgently be instructed that such methods must stop,” Ménard said.Ménard acknowledged that journalists should comply with procedures established by the law, “but there is no justification for treating journalists like criminals,” he insisted. “All these arrests should also serve as a stimulus to the US consular services to inform journalists better, as press visas were not required until the Department of Homeland Security was created,” he added.Lappin, who lives in London, went to Los Angeles to carry out interviews with a view to writing an article for the British daily The Guardian. She told Reporters Without Borders she was treated “like a criminal.”After being detained on arrival at Los Angeles airport on the evening of 3 May, she was interrogated “for a long time,” she said. Then she was subjected to a search, and her bags were searched. “I had the impression that there is a policy to intimidate the individual,” she stressed. She was taken to a Los Angeles detention centre about 30 km from the airport in a van in which she remained handcuffed.”There, I was put in a cell with no place to sleep. There was just a small bench about 30 cm wide.” The next morning, she was taken back to the airport, where she spent the day before being put on a flight at the end of the afternoon. She arrived back in London shortly before noon today.Born in Russia, Lappin is a writer and journalist. Her articles have been published in Britain (The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Times), Germany (Die Zeit, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) and the United States (New York Observer, Granta).Since 1 March 2003, the US Immigration Department has been under the control of the Department of Homeland Security, a super-ministry of interior that is supposed to prevent new terrorist attacks.The United States chapter of the Reporters Without Borders 2004 Report on Freedom of the Press throughout the World says: “The US also changed its visa policy. The rule that working journalists must have a visa, once ignored by immigration officials, is now strictly enforced. As a result, 13 foreign journalists were deported on arrival. It was hard to call this a deliberate restriction of press freedom in view of the subjects these journalists were writing about, but application of the rule is disturbing.They were treated like criminals, interrogated, searched, detained, photographed, fingerprinted and taken to planes in handcuffs – to prevent immigration officers being injured, according to one official. Some of the journalists watched as colleagues, also without journalist visas, passed through immigration without problem. Such deportations, nearly all of them at Los Angeles airport, may have been a case of over-zealous local police.”The list of journalists expelled from the United States in 2003 is available at:http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=10003 last_img read more
