Vodafone shares slide as operator ‘calculates cost’ of Huawei ban

first_img However, Read today said Vodafone did not currently have a ballpark figure for the cost, “because frankly, we just got the new rules and therefore we have to work through the impact”. Vodafone shares slide as operator ‘calculates cost’ of Huawei ban Show Comments ▼ Poppy Wood Read said the Huawei ban should be seen as “very much a UK decision”, which should not automatically be extrapolated to Vodafone’s use of Huawei technology across Europe. “I think you should view it in the context of the UK’s unique geopolitical position, especially as a member of Five Eyes [and its] relationship with the US. I would not automatically extrapolate this to Europe. Europe is going through its own process of review with the 5G toolkit.” Share Vodafone chief executive Nick Read told reporters this morning the firm was “clearly disappointed” in the government’s decision last week to U-turn on a deal with Huawei to build part of the UK’s 5G infrastructure over national security concerns. Vodafone posted a profit of €500m this morning, swinging back into the black after posting a loss in 2020.

The company also said lower prepaid SIM sales to tourists and migrant workers dented earnings, after Vodafone saw roaming and visitor revenue in Europe plunge 70 per cent over the quarter. whatsapp Vodafone posted a profit of €500m this morning, swinging back into the black after posting a loss in 2020.

Vodafone shares dipped more than five per cent this morning as the telecoms firm said it was still “calculating the cost” of removing Huawei kit from its 5G network following a government ban on the Chinese vendor. Vodafone, BT and Three, which have all launched 5G using Huawei kit, have warned that the government’s decision will cost them billions. It comes as the British telecoms firm this morning reported a 1.4 per cent dip in revenue to €10.5bn over the three months to 30 June, as coronavirus lockdowns around the world dented its service revenue.

Current UK regulations dictate that face masks must be worn on public transport, in shops and supermarkets and in a selection of other indoor settings. A French government official yesterday confirmed that it will be mandatory to wear face coverings in most workplaces in the country from 1 September. “The reason is that the evidence from NHS Test and Trace for where people catch the disease is that, very largely, they catch it from one household meeting another household, usually in one of their homes,” he said. UK workers have no reason to avoid returning to their offices this autumn, as there is little chance of catching coronavirus in the workplace, health secretary Matt Hancock said today.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur ban selfie sticks from the Emirates Stadium and White Hart Lane

first_img Tags: Tottenham Hotspur Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur ban selfie sticks from the Emirates Stadium and White Hart Lane Share Lynsey Barber Selfie sticks certainly don’t please everyone and now the narcissistic gadget has fallen on the wrong side of two of London’s biggest football clubs.Fans have been banned from using the popular device used to take photos from further away at Arsenal and Tottenham’s football grounds. Match-goers will not be able to take the sticks into the Emirates Stadium or White Hart Lane, but maybe not for the reason you might think.It’s not just that they’re extremely annoying and people have had enough, it’s because they pose a safety threat.An Arsenal spokesperson told the Camden New Journal: “We can confirm that selfie sticks are banned on match days at Emirates Stadium. The club’s ground regulations prohibit any object that could be used as a weapon or could compromise public safety.”Over at White Hart Lane, its customer care team emailed a Tottenham fan to say they had banned the sticks and “all stewards will be briefed prior to the next home fixture,” the BBC reports.The fan tweeted a picture of the email declaring victory.https://twitter.com/LiamCSWY/status/552806479032774656Although he did reveal his own reason for complaining to the club about them.https://twitter.com/LiamCSWY/status/552823627134279680Football fans will just have to get used to close-up selfies rather than panoramas and make do with taking shots the traditional way.The popularity of the selfie stick suddenly took off at the end of last year, with eBay selling two every minute over Christmas in the UK, however the novelty is clearly wearing off for some. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekBeverly Hills MDPlastic Surgeon Explains: “Doing This Every Morning Can Snap Back Sagging Skin” (No Creams Needed)Beverly Hills MDThe No Cost Solar ProgramGet Paid To Install Solar + Tesla Battery For No Cost At Install and Save Thousands.The No Cost Solar ProgramHero WarsThis game will keep you up all night!Hero WarsEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity Mirrorzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementIf Your Dog Eats Grass (Do This Every Day)Ultimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

CU-Boulder tied for first in number of American Geophysical Union Fellows elected in 2014

first_imgCategories:Science & TechnologyEnvironmentNews Headlines Tom WoodsShijie Zhong Three of the 62 scientists from around the world elected this week as American Geophysical Union Fellows are from the University of Colorado Boulder, tying the university for the most fellows elected in 2014 with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and Oregon State University in Corvallis.The 2014 AGU Fellows were honored for their “exceptional scientific contributions and attained acknowledged eminence” in the fields of Earth and space sciences. Since the establishment of the AGU Fellows Program in 1962, no more than 0.1 percent of the total membership of AGU is recognized annually.The CU-Boulder honorees include Professor Anne Sheehan of the Department of Geological Sciences, Professor Shijie Zhong of the Department of Physics and Senior Research Associate Tom Woods of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. Sheehan, also a member of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, studies the crust and upper mantle of Earth and its relation to tectonic deformation. She is involved in ongoing projects in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming and New Zealand.  She and her team regularly deploy portable seismometers that record both distant and local earthquakes, and recently placed seismometers in the Greeley, Colo., region following an earthquake there.Zhong studies the physical processes that control the evolution of the terrestrial planets like the Earth, moon and Mars, including using high-resolution gravity and topography data obtained via space exploration. The primary goal is to understand how the physical processes at work on terrestrial planets are related to their thermal evolution.Woods studies the violent effects of the sun on near-Earth space weather that can affect satellites, power grids and ground communications systems. He currently is the principal investigator on a $32 million orbiting instrument package built at LASP flying on NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory that is helping scientists better understand rapid fluctuations in the sun’s extreme ultraviolet output in order to make better space weather predictions.There were four other AGU Fellows elected from Colorado in 2014, all from Boulder. They include Clara Deser and Gerald Meehl from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, David Parrish from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Joseph Borovsky from the Space Science Institute.Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the AGU is dedicated to advancing the Earth and space sciences for the benefit of humanity through its scholarly publications, conferences and outreach programs. AGU is a not-for-profit scientific organization representing more than 62,000 members in 142 countries.The new AGU Fellows will be honored in December as part of the 2014 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.Contact:Jim Scott, CU-Boulder media relations, [email protected] Published: July 31, 2014 center_img Anne Sheehan Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-maillast_img read more
