Trainline’s share price has fallen by around 30% over the last year.Today’s crash was triggered by news that the government intends to create a new national rail body. This will operate its own ticket selling platform, which could threaten Trainline’s business. However, that hasn’t happened yet — and Trainline has plenty of experience in ticket sales. Could today’s fall actually be a buying opportunity for Trainline shares?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…What’s happened and why it mattersThe government plans to restructure the UK’s rail system. A new public body, called Great British Railways (GBR), will oversee rail infrastructure and develop a new unified online ticketing platform.As regular rail users will know, the current ticketing system is complicated and fragmented. In my experience, it’s quite easy to pay several different prices for the same journey. The plan is to simplify and unify ticketing, with features such as flexible pricing and online compensation.The potential impact on Trainline isn’t hard to imagine. The online seller makes most of its money from commission on rail ticket sales. Part of Trainline’s investment appeal is that it can link together all the different parts of the current ticketing system.If the new GBR ticketing platform delivers a properly-integrated digital service, Trainline’s UK offering may become redundant.The story isn’t over yetHowever, I can see some reasons to be optimistic about the outlook for Trainline’s battered share price.As I mentioned, GBR’s proposed ticketing platform doesn’t exist yet. Building a modern, integrated rail ticketing system for the UK could take a while. Indeed, I reckon Trainline might even get involved in this process. The company already has more knowledge than most about UK rail ticketing.Trainline’s strong brand and user base might also mean the company can maintain its share of UK ticket sales when the new system is introduced.Finally, Trainline has international ambitions. In the year before the pandemic, the firm sold £3,237m of UK tickets and £490m of international rail tickets, mostly in France, Italy, and Germany.Unfortunately, international sales only generated £26m of commissions and other income, compared to £235m from UK ticket sales. The international business doesn’t yet seem big enough to support Trainline’s future.Trainline share price: stand clearEven before today’s news, I thought Trainline shares looked too expensive. The company’s revenue peaked at £261m in 2019/20, but even then, the group reported an operating profit of just £2m.Broker forecasts before today suggested Trainline’s profitability would improve quickly from 2022 onwards. If these forecasts stay unchanged, then the shares are trading on 35 times 2022/23 forecast earnings after today’s crash.For me, that’s still too much to pay for a company that’s never generated decent levels of profit and is facing a new challenge to its main business.I think Trainline’s share price could have further to fall, so I won’t be buying.

Guatemalans protest girls’ deaths

first_imgMeches Rosales-Maupin reported on the protest at the Guatemalan Consulate to the InternationalWorking Women’s Day Roundtable on March 11.The deaths of over 40 young women in Guatemala City, Guatemala, on March 8 — International Women’s Day, no less — demonstrate how imperialism and all its byproducts continue to grossly fail the world’s youth.Over 40 young women were burned to death as a fire swept a Guatemalan children’s shelter. Nineteen died at the scene and the rest in hospitals.Early reports said the fire started when the young women, angered by deplorable conditions, set a mattress on fire to get the officials’ attention.  But as more information is discovered, reports point to the fact that the children died because they were intentionally locked in the building and could not get out when the fire got out of control.The shelter, overcrowded and neglected by the state, held poor children, some who were orphans. Many were victims of child abuse. Reports indicate that the girls had run away from the shelter because of the terrible conditions, were recaptured, and then the administration punished them by locking them in. It reportedly took almost an hour for fire officials to arrive.The shelter was built to house 500 people but was actually housing 750 children at the time of the fire. Reports are still coming in about conditions, but there had been reports of trouble at the shelter for several years. (New York Times, March 9) In fact, a prosecutor had already recommended shutting it down.Family members of the young girls have joined other Guatemalans in protest and thousands have taken to the streets. The movement is declaring “Fue el estado” (It was the state) that was responsible.  Hundreds of women are organizing against this attack, the latest on the lives of women and youth, and adding to the charge that the state was responsible for the lives of the 40 young women.Independent journalists are pulling together facts that indicate the state is completely responsible.  Witnesses told the Guatemalan publication Nomada that other youth had been trying to help the young girls days before the fire. (March 13) The girls were trying to get help, witnesses report, because of sexual abuse and other vile misconduct by the staff.  These protests had been ignored by the state, leading to the youth running away, their recapture and then the ghastly fire.Guatemalans in New York took to the streets and held a protest in front of the Guatemalan Consulate on March 11.  Another protest is planned there on Saturday, March 25, at 3 p.m.One of the Guatemalan activists in New York told WW, “We are organizing in support of our sisters in Guatemala and declaring no more femicide in all of Latin America.  Please join us in front of the consulate at 276 Park Avenue at 23rd Street.”For more information, visit iacenter.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Opioids, Obesity, and Telemedicine Discussed at Rural Health Conference

first_img Opioids, Obesity, and Telemedicine Discussed at Rural Health Conference Facebook Twitter Opioids, Obesity, and Telemedicine Discussed at Rural Health ConferenceThe Indiana Rural Health Association is holding their 21st annual conference in French Lick. Topics on the agenda include the opioid epidemic, obesity, closing the gap of infant mortalities in rural communities, and how telemedicine can help prevent lengthy and costly doctor visits.Nearly half of Indiana counties are considered rural communities by the USDA. IRHA Executive Don Kelso says the primary goal of the Indiana Rural Health Association is to improve the health and well-being of rural Hoosiers through education, collaboration, and facilitation.“I think sometimes those people (in rural communities) are forgotten. They’re just viewed as always there and they’ve always been there. And sometimes those folks are hesitant, or reluctant, to access healthcare and wellness early enough. We deal in statistics and there are higher incidents of suicide in the ag industry, even opioid abuse, unfortunately.”Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box was the keynote speaker kicking off the annual conference. She said rural communities are facing the same issues as urban areas, but often to a greater degree.“So, we’re talking about the opioid epidemic. We’re talking about increased rates of smoking. We’re talking about obesity issues and the associated diabetes and hypertension, and also infant mortality. Unfortunately, rural America doesn’t have access, sometimes, in our critical access areas to as many primary care providers or specialists to deal with these areas. So, we have to be creative in the way that we reach rural America, for instance with telemedicine.”Box says telemedicine can help save a trip to a doctor that is far away. She says after the first physical exam, the majority of future visits are spent talking through issues and that can be done through telemedicine.“That allows us to follow chronic disease and to get better care for patients. So, we can actually touch base with an individual that’s had congestive heart failure and say, ‘How are you feeling today? How is your breathing today? Are you feeling short of breath? Are you having any chest pain? How is your swelling in your ankles today? Did you weigh yourself? How does it compare to yesterday?’ Those kinds of signs that we can pick up on to indicate whether that individual might need to make that extra trip to go see the health care provider in person.”The conference concludes Wednesday in French Lick.

‘She wanted to be an exceptional wife and mother’: Slain pregnant mom, daughters mourned at funeral

first_imgTown of Frederick, Colorado(FREDERICK, Colo.) — Shanann Watts and her two young daughters, Celeste and Bella — who were allegedly killed by Watts’ husband the girls’ father — were mourned at their funeral Saturday, along with Watts’ unborn son, Nico.“She had dreams to be fulfilled” and “wanted to be an exceptional wife and mother,” the pastor said of Watts, 34.The case began Aug. 13 when the pregnant mother and young girls — Celeste, 3 and Bella, 4 — were reported missing by a friend in their town of Frederick, Colorado.Chris Watts — who at first spoke to reporters, saying his wife disappeared without a trace — was arrested two days later.“Shanann was a woman of determination,” Pastor John Forbes said at the funeral Mass Saturday afternoon in North Carolina, where Shanann Watts’ family lives.“Her mother describes her as a fireball.

She wanted to support research into the disease she had, Lupus.”Bella and Celeste “were filled with life and joy and shared it with all those they encountered,” Forbes said.“The family would like to see good come from this tragedy,” Forbes said. “They do not desire vengeance and death, but justice and light.”Shanann Watts was found in a shallow grave near an oil tank, according to court documents filed in Weld County and obtained by ABC News.

Teenage girl dies after saving younger brother when they fell in frozen lake

first_imgreal444/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A teenage girl has died after saving her brother when they both fell into a frozen lake in Ohio, officials said.An officer who responded to the drowning incident also died, authorities said.The 16-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy fell through the ice near boat docks at Rocky Fork State Park in Hillsboro on Tuesday evening, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The 911 call came in around 6:30 p.m.By the time the Paint Creek Joint EMS and Fire District arrived, the girl was under the ice, according to Lt. Branden Jackman. The water was 36 degrees, he said.The boy was taken to the hospital in stable condition, but his sister was recovered by divers unresponsive, authorities said. She has not been identified publicly by authorities.“She got him out, before she succumbed,” Jackman told Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO-TV.While at the scene, Ohio Department of Natural Resources Officer Jason Lagore suffered a medical emergency and was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the department said. It did not provide details on the medical emergency.A 15-year veteran of the department, Lagore founded its first K-9 academy and led its Division of Parks and Watercraft K-9 training program.“Our hearts are with the family and loved ones of Officer Jason Lagore, who died in the line of duty last night,” Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Mary Mertz said in a statement Wednesday. “Our law enforcement officers and their families carry a unique and challenging burden of responsibilities, and we are deeply grateful for their service.”Lagore is survived by his wife, two young sons and K-9 partner, Sarge, the department said.On Wednesday, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered flags lowered on public buildings and grounds in Highland County and several other locations “in honor of his life and service.”Jackman had a message for Ohioans the day after the deadly incident.“Don’t go out on the ice,” he told WCPO. “It caused a very bad tragedy last night.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
