These safe harbors give providers immunity from liability for users'' possible copyright infringement -- if they expeditiously remove material when they get complaints. Whether or not the provider would have been liable for infringement by users'' materials it links to, the provider can avoid the possibility of a lawsuit for money damages by following the DMCA''s takedown procedure when it gets a complaint. The person whose information was removed can file a counter-notification if he or she believes the complaint was erroneous. [b][url=http://www.moncleroutletgoods.com]moncler outlet store[/url][/b] Question: What does a service provider have to do in order to qualify for safe harbor protection?[b][url=http://www.moncleroutletgoods.com]moncler outlet store[/url][/b] [b][url=http://www.moncleroutletgoods.com]moncler coats[/url][/b] Answer: In addition to informing its customers of its policies (discussed above), a service provider must follow the proper notice and takedown procedures (discussed above) and also meet several other requirements in order to qualify for exemption under the safe harbor provisions. In order to facilitate the notification process in cases of infringement, ISPs which allow users to store information on their networks, such as a web hosting service, must designate an agent that will receive the notices from copyright owners that its network contains material which infringes their intellectual property rights. The service provider must then notify the Copyright Office of the agent''s name and address and make that information publicly available on its web site. [512(c)(2)]Finally, the service provider must not have knowledge that the material or activity is infringing or of the fact that the infringing material exists on its network. [512(c)(1)(A)], [512(d)(1)(A)]. If it does discover such material before being contacted by the copyright owners, it is instructed to remove, or disable access to, the material itself. [512(c)(1)(A)(iii)], [512(d)(1)(C)]. The service provider must not gain any financial benefit that is attributable to the infringing material. [512(c)(1)(B)], [512(d)(2)].Question: What are the provisions of 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3) & 512(d)(3)?Answer: Section 512(c)(3) sets out the elements for notification under the DMCA. Subsection A (17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3)(A)) states that to be effective a notification must include: 1) a physical/electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the infringed right; 2) identification of the copyrighted works claimed to have been infringed; 3) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed; 4) information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party (e.g., the address, telephone number, or email address); 5) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner; and 6) a statement that information in the complaint is accurate and that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. Subsection B (17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3)(B)) states that if the complaining party does not substantially comply with these requirements the notice will not serve as actual notice for the purpose of Section 512.Section 512(d)(3), which applies to information location tools such as search engines and directories, incorporates the above requirements; however, instead of the identification of the allegedly infringing material, the notification must identify the reference or link to the material claimed to be infringing.Question: Does a service provider have to follow the safe harbor procedures?Answer: No. An ISP may choose not to follow the DMCA takedown process, and do without the safe harbor. If it would not be liable under pre-DMCA copyright law (for example, because it is not contributorily or vicariously liable, or because there is no underlying copyright infringement), it can still raise those same defenses if it is sued.Question: How do I file a DMCA counter-notice?Answer: If you believe your material was removed because of mistake or misidentification, you can file a counter notification asking the service provider to put it back up. Chilling Effects offers a form to build your own counter-notice.For more information on the DMCA Safe Harbors, see the FAQs on DMCA Safe Harbor.

He acknowledged that the group, which included at least four others, took somewhere between $800,000 and $1.5 million in high-end jewelry, watches and handbags from the likes of the Tourneau and Michael Kors stores as well as Saks Fifth Avenue from April 2012 to April 2013.More crime and safety newsFairfax County mother found dead was strangled, autopsy showsRachel Weiner and Ed O’Keefe [b][url=http://www.luxurybagstores.com]chanel bags outlet[/url][/b] Caleb Crew has been charged with murder in the death of his wife, Andrea Crew.Restaurateur brags about money for D.C. mayor in recordingAnn E.

The group often struck during the daytime at some of the area’s most upscale shops, shattering display cases in front of employees and customers.Douglas’s plea, though, revealed for the first time the broad geographic scope of the operation. In response to questions from U.S. District Court Judge Leonie M. Brinkema, Douglas, holding one hand behind his back, acknowledged that a Saks Fifth Avenue in Richmond and Nordstrom at King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania were among the stores the group hit.Locally, Douglas admitted to being involved in robberies at the Michael Kors store at the Tysons II Galleria, the Chanel boutique at the Galleria’s Neiman Marcus store and Belle­view Jewelers on Belle View Boulevard near Richmond Highway in Alexandria, among others.He acknowledged smashing the glass case at the Tourneau store at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City on March 19 and taking more than $503,000 in jewelry. And he admitted to serving as the getaway driver for the robbery of the Cartier store on Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase — a particularly notable role, given that a D.C. police officer who spotted the getaway car crashed while following it.Although Douglas acknowledged as a part of his plea that the group of robbers included at least five people, he and Davis are the only ones to have been publicly charged so far.Douglas is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 8.ReprintsDiscussion Policy| FAQ| About DiscussionsLoading...

(AP) -- Rookie cornerback David Amerson is making a statement at Washington Redskins training camp.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland[/url][/b] A fashion statement. With his socks.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland shoes[/url][/b] Amerson said he has about 10 pairs of stylish Stance-brand footwear. On Monday, he sported a gray and black pattern. On Tuesday, it''s was red and black.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland boots[/url][/b] ''''Just my own little flavor into things, that''s about it,'''' the second-round pick said.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland fashion boots[/url][/b] It''s not that Amerson needs the extra attention. He''s getting plenty, and in a higher-profile role than he could have expected.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland boots on sale[/url][/b] Amerson has worked with the starting secondary for almost all of camp. The first few days he filled in for Josh Wilson, who was late getting cleared for practice because of offseason shoulder surgery. Now the rookie is on the other side of the secondary in place of DeAngelo Hall, who is sidelined with a sprained ankle.[b][url=http://www.timberlandoutletshose.com]timberland discount shoes[/url][/b] Amerson''s learning the hard way. When a cornerback gets burned in practice, it''s quite noticeable. When he gave up a long touchdown pass on the first play of a drill on Saturday, he got yet another chewing-out from secondary coach Raheem Morris, who combines high volume and not-so-nice words to get his point across.''''As long as you''re doing everything right, he has no reason to yell at you. When he is yelling at you, you know what it''s for,'''' Amerson said. ''''I don''t take it the wrong way. I know that it''s coaching. Everyone has their different ways of coaching. He''s just yelling. Nothing wrong with that.''''Amerson, from N.C. State, was the first of three defensive backs drafted by the Redskins in April to address a unit that ranked 30th against the pass in 2012. It will be a major disappointment if none of the three gets major playing time this season. Sixth-rounder Bacarri Rambo from Georgia has been working at first-string safety, a surprise given that he was taken two rounds later than Phillip Thomas of Fresno State.Assuming Hall recovers in time for the regular season, Amerson and free agent pickup E.J. Biggers will compete for cornerback duty in nickel packages.''''I definitely see myself coming in here and being able to compete with the best,'''' Amerson said. ''''With them throwing me in there, I don''t see that as a problem at all.''''Amerson didn''t even play football during his first two years of high school in North Carolina, but during his sophomore year he dunked a basketball while wearing a pair of Timberland boots with the football coach watching. The coach couldn''t resist such athletic ability and recruited Amerson to start at safety the next season.Amerson chose N.C. State in part because he wanted to follow the path that eluded his older brother. Noah Amerson was actually the better athlete, according to David, and planned to play for the Wolfpack, but Noah started hanging out with the wrong crowd and ended up in jail. Noah now works in construction in Greensboro and lives his football dreams vicariously through David.''''Definitely, I learned from his mistakes,'''' David Amerson said. ''''And took his positives and kind of applied it to myself.''''On the football field, David Amerson appeared immune from mistakes when he set a single-season Atlantic Coast Conference record with 13 interceptions in 2011, winning the Jack Tatum Award as the nation''s top defensive back.But he was too eager to top himself. He was beaten on a pair of long touchdowns in N.C. State''s opener last season and struggled much of the year, trying to make the big play instead of playing sound coverage. It''s why he fell to the second round of the NFL draft.With the Redskins, he''s finding a steep learning curve. Hands have to be in the right position. Footwork needs to be perfect. Eyes looking the right way. He talks of ''''knowing what the quarterback''s intention is'''' and ''''fitting in the right place'''' based on how the formation looks.''''I''m just starting from the bottom. I''ve got a lot to prove,'''' he said. ''''Knowing they drafted me that high, and knowing they''ve got confidence in me definitely gives me confidence and motivates me to want to come out here and work hard and makes me want to learn everything, be on top of detail and everything like that.''''---Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAPYahoo!

It says Costco advertised the bags as starting at $99, but didn''t actually have any to sell.[b][url=http://www.selltiffanyoutlet.com]tiffany jewelry outlet[/url][/b] Michael Kors says the ads intentionally exploit the popularity of its bags, which can retail for several hundred dollars, and lure consumers away from authorized retailers.[b][url=http://www.selltiffanyoutlet.com]tiffany rings[/url][/b] Costco has also been sued recently by Tiffany & Co. for alleged illegal use of its trademarks.[b][url=http://www.selltiffanyoutlet.com]cheap tiffany & co jewelry[/url][/b] The lawsuit seeks a halt to the ads along with damages.Costco Wholesale Corp. officials didn''t immediately return an email seeking comment.Also on HuffPost:Loading SlideshowKanye West vs. PETA Kanye West really doesn''t know how to hold his tongue, and he also really loves wear fur. So it''s safe to say that he and PETA are not on good terms. In one of his songs he raps: "Tell PETA my mink draggin'' on the floor."PETA fired back, with senior vice president Dan Matthews saying, "What''s draggin'' on the floor is Kanye''s reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings." Harsh. Benetton''s Unhate Campaign In November 2011, the United Colors of Benetton <a href="http://www./2011/11/11/jay-z-occupy-wall-street-t-shirts_n_1088132.html" target="_blank">released photoshopped images of world leaders making out</a> to promote the idea of "unhate." Here is the Pope and al-Tayeb kissing. Other shots included President Obama kissing Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Abbas kissing Benjamin Natanyahu.Alessandro Benetton, the deputy chairman of the company, released the following statement: "The images are very strong, but we have to send a strong message. We are not wanting to be disrespectful of the leaders ... we consider them "conception figures" making a statement of brotherhood with a kiss." Tory Burch vs. Chris Burch and C. Wonder It''s sticky when you divorce a guy and he decides to <a href="http://www./2011/10/18/first-photos-tory-burchs-_n_1017979.html" target="_blank">use your ideas to open up his own store</a>. That''s what Chris Burch allegedly did with C. Wonder in 2012, a retail concept that had a very similar tone and product offering to Tory''s initial brand.Surprisingly, Chris was planning on suing Tory for breach of contract and tortious interference, but instead Tory filed counterclaims accusing Chris of withholding documents that indicate he stole Tory''s ideas. Coco Chanel vs. Elsa Schiaparelli The iconic Chanel was apparently quite the tormentor. In fact, one of her victims was fellow designer, Elsa Schiaparelli. Chanel has been noted as saying Schiaparelli was just "that Italian artist who makes clothes." As the story goes, she also once "accidentally" pushed Schiaparelli into a candle arrangement and set her on fire! Ouch. Vogue Netherlands'' Black Face Spread Vogue Netherlands'' May 2013 issue features this "Heritage Heroes" editorial. They<a href="http://www./2013/04/17/vogue-netherlands-blackface-shoot-controversy_n_3101059.html?utm_hp_ref=style&ir=Style#slide=2327193" target="_blank"> decided to take white models and paint their faces black</a> and put wigs on them that evoke African-American hair.Damian Bao expresses our opinion perfectly. Why couldn''t they have used models of a different ethnicity instead of offensively slathering a model in makeup? Hedi Slimane vs. Cathy Horyn You''re bound to get hate when you''re the New York Times fashion critic. At Spring 2013 Fashion Week, designers pushed back after Horyn critiqued their collections. Oscar de la Renta compared her to a "stale 3-day old hamburger," and Lady Gaga even rapped about how much she doesn''t like the critic.Perhaps the strongest shun was from Hedi Slimane, who was premiering his first collection with YSL and <a href="http://www./2012/10/02/hedi-slimane-twitter-fight-cathy-horyn-new-york-times_n_1933884.html" target="_blank">banned Horyn from attending the show</a>! Horyn claims Slimane is holding a grudge from five years ago and Slimane responded by creating a Twitter graphic with the title, "My Own Times." Lynn Tesaro''s Slap Tesaro, the PR rep for Zac Posen, <a href="http://www./2012/11/09/lynn-tesoro-fashion-week-slap-marie-jose-susskind-jalou_n_2100596.html" target="_blank">was slapped by Marie-José Susskind-Jalou</a>, president of Jalou publishing house, at New York Fashion Week in 2013 right before the Posen show. The tiff was over a lack of seating, with Susskind-Jalou and her daughters confronting Tesoro angrily when they were left without seats for the show. As one of the daughters said afterwards, "Now you know you don’t f--k with French people." Roberto Cavalli vs. Anna Wintour In April 2012, Cavalli was asked by La Repubblica what advice he would give to young fashion designers and he <a href="http://www./2012/04/18/robert-cavalli-anna-wintour-comment_n_1435517.html" target="_blank">dared to cross the great and powerful Wintour</a>.He said, "Just look at American fashion, which is almost fashion. It''s terrible and you almost can''t even look at it, but it has been driven by a great journalist, Anna Wintour, who wants all women to be like her and to dress the way she does." Harvey Nichols'' Crotch-Wetting Campaign The tagline was, "Try to contain your excitement," in this Harvey Nichols Summer 2012 sale campaign.<a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/06/08/harvey-nichols-advert-features-models-wetting-themselves-in-excitement-over-sale-_n_1580443.html" target="_blank">Responding to accusations that the ad was off-putting and yucky, a Harvey Nichols spokesperson said</a>, "In humorous reaction to the (often-irrational) excitement sale time engenders, we have developed this campaign to capture this near-fanatical spirit, because let''s face it, the thought of picking up brands at up to 70% off is enough to excite and overwhelm even the most composed shopper in us all." Andrej Pejic''s Dossier Cover Barnes and Noble initially <a href="http://www./2011/05/16/dossier-andrej-pejic-cover-censored_n_862424.html" target="_blank">censored this cover of Dossier</a> because it featured androgynous male model Pejic taking off a shirt. The backlash against Barnes and Noble came shortly thereafter. The Birkin Burning Tyler Shields, the photographer with a knack for controversy, was caught in a fashion scandal when he took photos of Francesca Eastwood, a model (and Clint''s daughter), and her <a href="http://www./2012/05/29/francesca-eastwood-birkin-burning-tyler-shields_n_1553413.html" target="_blank">burning red Crocodile Birkin bag being destroyed by fire and a chainsaw</a>. Topshop''s Really Thin Model In July 2011, super-skinny model <a href="http://www./2011/07/19/codie-young-topshop-skinny-model_n_902365.html" target="_blank">Codie Young received backlash over photos she took for Topshop</a>. The Daily Mail called her body in the pictures "painfully thin" and said she had a "gaunt face and a skeletal frame."Topshop ultimately pulled the picture and Young responded to the comments saying, "I am very happy with my body and how I look because its apart of who I am! Throughout my entire childhood I was called anorexic and people would ask if I was bulimic. And it was really hard sometimes for me to deal with as I have always been this way." 10-Year-Old Thylane Loubry Blondeau Raises Eyebrows This young model <a href="http://www./2011/08/04/thylane-blondeau-10-year-old-model_n_918066.html" target="_blank">sparked controversy after she posed for this Vogue Paris shoot in 2011</a> when she was just ten years old. She was shown in various provocative poses that people felt were a little too mature for her tender age. Vogue Italia''s Plus-Size Model Photo Shoot In June 2011, Vogue Italia embraced curves and <a href="http://www./2011/06/03/vogue-italia-plus-size_n_870739.html" target="_blank">defied boundaries</a> in terms of high-fashion shoots. Vogue Italia''s Slave Earrings Only two months later, Vogue Italia was slammed by many, including model Iman, for <a href="http://www./news/vogue-italia-slave-earrings" target="_blank">featuring "Slave Earrings" in their "Shop The Trend" section on their website</a>. After the backlash, they changed the name to "Ethnic Earrings." Karlie Kloss'' Nude Spread for Vogue Italia Then, in December of the same year, Vogue Italia <a href="http://www./2011/12/01/karlie-kloss-nude_n_1122881.html" target="_blank">decided to feature a photo shoot of it-model Karlie Kloss</a>. The only problem was that the magazine was accused of photoshopping Kloss'' already svelte figure even thinner.Whether it was Photoshop or not, the magazine decided to pul the image seen to the left off their website, along with the caption, "The (new) Body." Jay-Z''s Occupy All Streets Shirts In support of the Occupy Wall Street Movement, Jay-Z''s clothing line, Rocawear,<a href="http://www./2011/11/11/jay-z-occupy-wall-street-t-shirts_n_1088132.html" target="_blank"> released t-shirts in 2011 that said, "Occupy All Streets."</a>People were quick to fire back with criticism insisting that Jay and his team were trying to monopolize off of the protestors since the company was not donating any of the proceeds to the cause. Marc Jacobs vs. Kidult This one is really unique. In May 2012, the Marc Jacobs store on Mercer Street in New York City <a href="http://www./2012/05/14/marc-jacobs-graffiti-art-kidult-t-shirts_n_1515697.html" target="_blank">discovered that street-artist Kidult had tagged the store with the word "ART". </a>Jacobs responded by using the tag as inspiration for a $689 limited-edition t-shirt emblazoned with a photo of the tag. Gucci vs. Guess After years of battling over who gets the right to use the very similar logo design, in May 2012, a judge <a href="http://www./2012/05/21/gucci-lawsuit-gucci-wins-_n_1534491.html#s824190&title=Gucci" target="_blank"> ruled that Guess owed Gucci $4.66 million dollars</a> in damages from using its unauthorized trademark "G" logo. John Galliano''s Anti-Semitic Remarks In February 2011, designer John Galliano was <a href="http://www./2011/02/28/galliano-hitler-racist-rant-arrest_n_828955.html" target="_blank">heard on the record saying to people at a Parisian café</a>, "I love Hitler," and "People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f-cking gassed."Dior fired him as a designer the next day and then he checked into rehab. He''s slowly been working his way back into the industry''s good graces ever since. Christian Louboutin vs. Yves St. Laurent It was the battle of the red soles. In April 2011, Christian Louboutin sued YSL for $1 million in damages for putting red soles on the bottom of their shoes, with Louboutin claiming that the red sole had been trademarked to their company in 2008.The dispute was <a href="http://www./2012/10/16/christian-louboutin-vs-ysl-lawsuit-over_n_1970511.html" target="_blank">settled in October 2012</a> when the court ruled that YSL could make monochromatic red shoes with red soles but still gave Louboutin trademark protection over the red sole alone. Jenna Lyons Paints Her Son''s Toenails In an online feature for J.Crew in 2011, the creative director of the brand was shown <a href="http://www./2011/04/12/fox-news-jcrew-jenna-lyons-_n_848152.html" target="_blank">polishing her young son''s toenails pink</a>.What seemed to a cute, well-meaning photo received extreme criticism from "experts," most notably Dr. Keith Ablow who said, "This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity." Natasha Poly vs. Jessica Hart Poly (seen to the left) got into a brawl with fellow model, Jessica Hart, at Double Seven, a New York City nightclub. Hart apparently attacked Poly and screamed to her that her husband (Peter Bakker) was a "loser." Nivea''s Re-Civilize Yourself Ad Nivea <a href="http://www./2011/08/18/nivea-ad-racist_n_930501.html" target="_blank">received backlash over this ad</a>, with critics citing the decision to pair an African-American model with the phrase "re-civilize" as insensitive and racist Urban Outfitters'' Diss to Mexico "New Mexico, Cleaner than Regular Mexico" t-shirts didn''t go over well when released in 2005. Nice job, Urban Outfitters. Urban Outfitters'' Other Mexico Diss In January 2013, Urban Outfitters <a href="http://www./2013/01/03/urban-outfitters-controversy-walmart-shirt_n_2404016.html" target="_blank">stirred controversy when it decided to sell a vintage-looking Walmart work shirt </a>with the name "Juan" on it.Many Latinos felt the clothing company was being "racist and classist." Urban Outfitters Targets Teens With Alcohol? Urban Outfitters thought it was a good idea to sell this shirt to its young demographic (with a lot of them being younger than 21). Urban Outfitters References The Holocaust? The popular retailer got in trouble for its "<a href="http://www./2012/04/20/urban-outfitters-jewish-star-tshirt_n_1441731.html" target="_hplink">Jewish Star</a>" t-shirt, that many thought made light of the Holocaust. JC Penney''s Degrading Shirts In 2011, JC Penney <a href="http://www./2011/08/31/jc-penneys-girls-shirt_n_943349.html" target="_blank">released these shirts targeted towards middle-school girls</a> that read "I''m too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me" and "Allergic to Algebra."Critics attacked JC Penney, saying the store was sending a bad message to young girls by telling them that it''s impossible to be both pretty <em>and</em> smart.The company immediately regretted the decision and sent out a statement saying, "We agree that the ''Too pretty'' t-shirt does not deliver an appropriate message, and we have immediately discontinued its sale." Urban Outfitters'' Bad Message to Girls In 2010, <a href="http://www./2010/06/03/eat-less-urban-outfitters_n_598904.html" target="_hplink">"Eat Less"</a> t-shirts weren''t well received by, well, most people. Victoria''s Secret''s Asian Stereotyping As part of the brand''s "Far East" collection, the <a href="http://www./2012/09/24/victorias-secret-geisha-outfit-photos_n_1909366.html" target="_blank">"Sexy Little Geisha"</a> outfit came complete with a removable obi belt. Abercrombie & Fitch''s Asian Caricatures In 2002, Asian caricature t-shirts <a href="http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/ABERCROMBIE-GLITCH-Asian-Americans-rip-2850702.php" target="_hplink">caused outrage in California.</a> Nike''s St. Patrick''s Day Sneakers Nike''s St. Patrick''s Day-themed SB Dunk Low <a href="http://www./2012/03/14/nike-black-and-tan_n_1344197.html" target="_hplink">"Black and Tan"</a> sneakers incited outrage from the Irish community. Turns out Nike didn''t realize that "Black and Tan" or "Tan" is still a pejorative term for the British in Ireland.Nike followed up with an apology. Urban Outfitters Mocks the Irish Some Irish groups were not pleased with this "<a href="http://www./2012/03/01/urban-outfitters-st-patricks-day-clothes-_n_1313242.html" target="_hplink">Irish Yoga</a>" trucker hat that mocked their culture.

Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY), along with members of the Congressional Ad Hoc Committee on Irish Affairs, quickly demanded that Urban Outfitters stop selling the Irish-themed products. Adidas'' Shackle Shoes These Jeremy Scott x adidas Roundhouse Mid "Handcuffs," or "shackle," sneakers <a href="http://www./2012/06/18/adidas-shackle-sneakers-controversy_n_1605661.html" target="_blank">caused outrage</a> when people connected the shackle imagery to slavery.

[b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]iwc[/url][/b] Now newly released documents finally pin down Tilikum''s capture date and his exact location at the time of capture.According to the documents published at CetaBase.com , Tilikum was captured November 9th, 1983, close to Djúpivogur off the east coast of Iceland.The exact coordinates detailed in an Icelandic progress report to the International Whaling Commission (IWC), listed the bull orca''s capture at 64° 39''N, 14° 14''W. [b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]iwc portuguese swiss replica[/url][/b] He measured 4.2 meters long.Less than one week later on November 14, 1983, two other killer whales were captured. [b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]best iwc replica watches[/url][/b] Samoa, a female and Nandu, another male, were taken South West of Papey at 64° 26''N, 14° 20''W. [b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]iwc portuguese swiss replica[/url][/b] Samoa was listed as 4m long at the time of capture; Nandu was 3.5m long.Caught for captivityGoogle Mapswhere Tilikum was captured according to coordinates.image:154929:0::0Tilikum was sent to live at Sealand of the Pacific in Canada. [b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]replica iwc aquatimer[/url][/b] It was here that he played a role in the killing of trainer, Keltie Byrne. [b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com]iwc portuguese swiss replica[/url][/b] After Byrne''s death, Sealand closed its doors and Tilikum was moved to SeaWorld Orlando, Florida, on January 9, 1992.The large whale, now estimated to measure 22.5 feet (6.9 m) long, has resided in Orlando ever since. During his tenure at SeaWorld, Tilikum was implicated in the death of drifter, Daniel Dukes, and was directly responsible for the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.All three whales were held at Saedyrasafnid Aquarium prior to transfer. Samoa and Nandu were sold to Acuarama, a Brazilian aquarium. In May 1989, Samoa was sold and transferred to SeaWorld Ohio, before being moved to SeaWorld Texas October 1990 .Google Mapswhere the location of Tilikum''s capture was thought to be. The whale was taken close to Djúpivogur.image:154927:1::0Samoa mated with an Icelandic killer whale named Kotar at SeaWorld and died from what was believed to be complications of giving birth. Others have argued that what killed Samoa was actually a fungal disease .The young whale, estimated at 12-14 years old, went into premature labor on March 14, 1992. She lived for less than nine years in captivity and died giving birth. Her calf was also stillborn.Nandu survived less than five years in captivity. In 1988, he was found deceased in his tank, Samoa by his side; his subsequent autopsy revealed an ulcer and liver tumor.[b][url=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com/]iwc imitation[/url][/b][b]<a href=http://www.loveiwcwatches.com/>swiss replica iwc watches</a>[/b]

As consumer spending is the key to the viability of any economy, the health of the retail industry becomes an important economic indicator.<br><br> As a leader in the retail business, the United States provides ample growth opportunities for all types of retail companies. The retail industry covers everything in its scope, ranging from internet catalog sales, auto dealers, convenience stores, vending machines and clothing; thus dividing retailers into numerous categories. Retailers of all sizes, including individual direct marketers or direct sellers, small- to medium-sized franchise unit owners, and large “big-box” store operators compete in the U.S.<br><br> From a growth perspective, the retail industry is among the dominant U.S. industries, and employs an enormous workforce.<br><br> Correlation with the Economy <br><br> So far this year, the broader markets have showcased signs of a better pace of recovery and have thus infused hopes of a better economic scenario in the second half of the year and beyond. One could contest this economic outlook, but the stock market’s strong recent gains show clearly which way investors think the economy is headed. The S&P 500 index has clocked gains of roughly 14.3%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained approximately 15.2% so far this year.<br><br> The belief in economic recovery is reflected in measures of consumer confidence hitting new multi-year high. The recent Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index improved to 81.4 in Jun 2013 from a revised 74.3 in May 2013. The index notched its highest level since Jan 2008, when it had touched 87.3. This prompts a sense of optimism about steady increase in consumer spending going forward.<br><br> The recovery in the housing market, stock prices gaining momentum and improving labor market conditions played vital roles to help the consumer confidence move north.<br><br> According to the Census Bureau and Department of Housing and Urban Development, sales of new houses jumped 2.1% sequentially in May 2013 and surged 29% from May 2012. Additionally, unemployment rate is currently hovering around 7.6%, reflecting an improvement from 7.9% in the beginning of the year.<br><br> Meanwhile, Fed Officials hinted that it might gradually roll back the $85 billion monthly stimulus program in the later part of the year and said that they might discontinue the program by the middle of next year if economy improves further.<br><br> Fed Officials look quite optimistic about the unemployment rate going down to a range of 7.2% to 7.3% in 2013 with expected economic growth of 2.3% to 2.6%. Moreover, they see the unemployment rate between 6.5% and 6.8% next year, driven by economic growth in the 3% to 3.5% range.<br><br> We will have to wait and see how the economic picture unfolds, but Ben Bernanke in his Congressional testimony this week indicated that the Fed will maintain accommodative monetary policy for a very long time even if they make changes to the QE program.<br><br> Key Metric for June <br><br> The key data in retail industry analysis is comparable-store sales (comps), as it excludes sales at newly opened and closed stores. Improving job market, lower gas prices, warmer weather and clearance discounts boosted consumer sentiment. These positives aided retailers to generate healthy sales for the month of June with consumer spending gaining some pace.<br><br> Among the retailers, clothing chain The Gap Inc. ( GPS ) led the pack with a 7% rise in comps and an 8% increase in net sales to $1.53 billion for the month of June. Off-price retailer of apparels, footwear and accessories Stein Mart Inc. ( SMRT ) was also on the list of best performers. The company registered a 6.5% rise in June comps, while total sales increased 2.6% to $109 million.  <br><br> Furthermore, discount store operator Fred''s, Inc. ( FRED ) witnessed a significant improvement with a 4.5% rise in comps, substantially up from the 4% decrease witnessed in Jun 2012. Net sales for June increased 3% to $187.7 million. Costco Wholesale Corporation ( COST ), the warehouse retailer, delivered comparable-store sales growth of 6% in June, following an increase of 5% in May. Meanwhile, net sales for June rose 8% to $9.92 billion from $9.16 billion in the year-ago period.<br><br> The Buckle, Inc. ( BKE ), a retailer of casual apparels, footwear and accessories for men and women, witnessed a 3.4% rise in comps when compared with Jun 2012 results. Net sales increased 3.9% to $82.5 million from $79.4 million in the prior-year period.<br><br> However, some retailers showcased soft performance. Apparel and accessories retailer, Cato Corporation ( CATO ) reported a 1% rise in comps. L Brands, Inc. ( LTD ), a specialty retailer of women’s intimate and other apparel, beauty and personal care products posted flat comparable-store sales. Washington-based retailer of sports-related teen apparel Zumiez Inc. ( ZUMZ ) reported a 1.0% increase in comps.<br><br> Drugstore chain retailer Rite Aid Corp. ( RAD ) reported marginal growth in comparable-store sales for Jun 2013, thereby breaking the declining trend of comps for the past four months. The company’s comps for the 4-week period ended Jun 29, 2013 inched up 0.7%, primarily driven by improved comps results at its pharmacy and front-end stores.<br><br> However, the U.S. retail and food services sales data for Jun 2013 were somewhat disappointing. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the retail and food services sales grew 0.4% sequentially and 5.7% year-over-year to $422.8 billion. The rate of increase decelerated from 0.5% gain in May 2013 and fell short of analysts’ expectation of 0.7% to 0.9% increase. Retail sales represent approximately 30% of consumer spending.<br><br> Retailing - New Game, New Rules <br><br> The retail industry is rapidly evolving with a dramatic change in consumer buying habits. Satisfying customers and enriching buying experience require new strategies from retailers today. Modern retailing, interestingly enough, is a new game with new rules.<br><br> Despite the gradual rise in consumer discretionary purchases, the sluggish U.S. economy and recessionary fears in Europe cannot be ignored. Burdened with the lackluster scenario, retailers have largely concentrated on buyers’ needs and lured them with innovative products, attractive discounts, free shipping and the ease of shopping through smartphones and tablets. However, these strategies only helped in generating modest revenues.<br><br> Thus, retailers essentially need to ideate brilliant strategies, while incorporating technological advancements and utilizing their real estate portfolio to the optimum level. In short, they need to Experiment, Differentiate, Optimize and Transform.<br><br> Banking on this new mantra, Staples Inc. ( SPLS ), the world’s largest retailer of office products and services and second largest online retailer, launched its first omnichannel stores – what it refers to as the future of retail.<br><br> Simply put, through this omnichannel strategy, Staples hopes to integrate its retail network with enhanced digital capabilities. The company stated that stores will incorporate its .com and mobile assets. Alongside, the stores will feature Staples.com kiosks.  <br><br> This new era store concept, with all its attractions could well prove to be a game changer in the long run for Staples. Providing shoppers the ease of shopping on their own terms and enriching their in-store shopping experience could be a crucial point of differentiation among other retailers.<br><br> In harmony with the evolving retail industry, department store operator Macy''s, Inc. ( M ) also adopted an omnichannel strategy. Despite macroeconomic challenges and cautious consumer spending, Macy’s continues to post healthy results. Management largely attributes the credit to its omnichannel strategy aimed at enhancing customers’ shopping experience.<br><br> Trends to Rule 2013 <br><br> Some of the trends that are expected to rule the retail sector this year include employing more technological solutions, incorporating customer feedback and targeting additional audiences with products and services.<br><br> With the growth of the .com era, shoppers have largely adopted new purchasing modes, using the Internet, mobile phones and tablets. Consumers today prefer to use their laptops or smartphones to compare prices of products they want to buy and place orders online, instead of visiting the company’s stores. This growing trend has guided major U.S. retail chains to downsize their physical retail operations, and in turn develop their e-Commerce and m-Commerce sites to attract customers.<br><br> Other traits that are expected to affect the retail industry are the growth of self-service options for processes such as checking out and finding items in stores. These offerings provide greater convenience and faster transactions, and they satisfy shoppers who prefer to visit brick-and-mortar locations for immediately purchasing predetermined items.<br><br> Of late, store-within-a store has been making headlines, though the concept is nothing new to retailers. J. C. Penney Company Inc. ( JCP ) is one such retailer which has been focusing on this business strategy for quite some time. The recent one to join the league is consumer electronic retailer Best Buy Company Inc. ( BBY ), which has been facing stiff competition from industry bellwethers such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. ( WMT ) and Amazon.com Inc. ( AMZN ) to increase its footfall, sales and profitability.<br><br> Best Buy is leaving no stone unturned to woo consumers and attain incremental revenue, and it was well evident from its strategic initiative of opening over 1,400 Samsung Experience Shops within its stores, announced in April. The model seems to be working for the retailer, which also has a dedicated floor area for Apple Inc.’s ( AAPL ) products. Taking the initiatives further, Best Buy recently unveiled its partnership with Microsoft Corporation ( MSFT ) to roll out “Windows Store” across its 500 outlets in the U.S. with an additional 100 in Canada.<br><br> Challenges and Some Remedial Measures <br><br> The retail industry is highly competitive and encounters significant challenges. Although the U.S. economy has started witnessing a recovery, we still believe that 2013 will not fully mark the resurrection. Consumers are slowly regaining confidence and cautiously increasing their spending.<br><br> Moreover, consumers remain sensitive to macroeconomic factors including interest rate hikes, increase in fuel and energy costs, credit availability, unemployment levels, and high household debt levels, which may negatively impact their discretionary spending and eventually adversely affect the growth and profitability of retail companies.<br><br> Macroeconomic Conditions: Retail is no different from other U.S. industries, which is highly dependent on the economy to prosper. Such heightened dependence on the economy and factors like job growth and interest rates indicate that a speedy recovery of the economy is vital for the health of the retail industry. While the unemployment rate has decreased considerably over time, consumers are now beginning to draw out their savings to spend, anticipating some economic recovery.<br><br> Changes in Consumer Needs, Attitudes and Behavior: The growth of modern retail is linked to consumer needs, attitudes and behavior. Adapting to the sluggish economic environment prevalent over the last few years, consumer behavior has shifted to being more conservative. This has now become the regular behavioral pattern of consumers as they remain budget conscious, seeking greater value. In the process, buyers are swiftly switching to the less expensive brands and consolidating shopping trips.</p> <p><strong><a href=http://www.itiffanyhotsale.com>tiffany</a></strong> Moreover, people today prefer to cook at home instead of eat out. This shift in consumer behavior is inducing retailers to adopt various strategies to stay in the competition. Retailers are offering trend-right and well-designed assortments at compelling prices, without compromising on the quality, in order to drive traffic.</p> <p><strong><a href=http://www.itiffanyhotsale.com>tiffany</a></strong> Staging Stores: The waning popularity of brick-and-mortar store formats has made it essential for retailers to adopt new techniques like ‘staging stores’ to woo customers. Staging basically refers to the act of making the company’s stores attractive, where people like to spend their time. The idea behind this strategy is to make shopping interesting for consumers, so that they would want to walk into the stores, rather than shop online.<br> Zacks Industry Rank<br><br> Within the Zacks Industry classification, Retail/Wholesale (one of 16 Zacks sectors) is divided into two categories – Nonfood Retail-Wholesale and Food/Drug- Retail/Wholesale under the Medium ( M ) Industry Group and further sub-divided into 15 industries at the expanded level – Building Products-Retail/Wholesale, Food Items-Wholesale, Internet Commerce, Retail/Wholesale Auto/Truck, Retail-Apparel/Shoe, Retail-Consumer Electronic, Retail-Discount, Retail-Drug Store, Retail-Jewelry, Retail-Miscellaneous/Diversified, Retail-Restaurants, Retail-RGN Department, Retail-Supermarket, Retail/Wholesale-Auto Parts and Retail/Wholesale CMP.  <br><br> We rank all the 260 plus industries in the 16 Zacks sectors based on the earnings outlook and fundamental strength of the constituent companies in each industry. To learn more visit: About Zacks Industry Rank.<br><br> As a point of reference, the outlook for industries with Zacks Industry Rank #88 and lower is ''Positive,'' between #89 and #176 is ''Neutral'' and #177 and higher is ''Negative.''<br><br> The Zacks Industry Rank for Retail-RGN Department #8, Retail/Wholesale CMP #9, Retail-Restaurants #40, Retail-Jewelry #44, Building Products-Retail/Wholesale #61, Retail/Wholesale Auto/Truck #67, Retail-Drug Store #71, Retail-Consumer Electronic #76, Retail-Miscellaneous/Diversified #97, Internet Commerce #104, Food Items-Wholesale #111, Retail-Apparel/Shoe #156, Retail-Supermarket #159, Retail/Wholesale-Auto Parts #184 and Retail-Discount #204.<br><br> Analyzing the Zacks Industry Rank for the constituent industries in this space, it is apparent that the overall outlook for the Retail/Wholesale sector is positive.<br><br> Earnings Trends <br><br> The broader Retail/Wholesale sector portrays an impressive earnings trend. The first quarter 2013 results for the sector were impressive in terms of both beat ratios (percentage of companies coming out with positive surprises) and growth.<br><br> The earnings beat ratio was 75%, while the revenue beat ratio was 50%. Total earnings for this sector increased 7.9%, reflecting an improvement over 6.6% growth registered in the fourth quarter of 2012. Total revenue grew 1.7% in the quarter versus 5.3% jump in the previous quarter.<br><br> Looking at the consensus earnings expectations for the rest of the year, we remain encouraged since earnings are expected to grow 5.9% in the second quarter of 2013 and 17.6% in the third quarter, but are expected to decline by 9.1% in the fourth quarter, thereby registering full-year 2013 growth of 10.0%.<br><br> For more details about earnings for this sector and others, please read our ‘Earnings Trends’ report .<br><br> Conclusion <br><br> Retailers are trying to remain competitive primarily by shifting focus to the long-term horizon and finding innovative solutions to create value, reduce operating costs and mitigate risks throughout the enterprise.<br><br> Right-sizing inventories, enhancing efficiency and competence and bringing in technological advancements are the key agendas that retailers are focusing on. Moreover, cost-containment efforts and merchandise initiatives to improve margins are top priorities.<br><br> Retail, owing to its huge spectrum, remains a lucrative investment avenue for investors. The sector reflects consumer spending trends, an important parameter to gauge the health of the economy. Thus, identifying future winners from this sector would be a good investment decision.<br><br> We recommend few stocks in the sector at this point, as these companies are showing significant growth despite the secular headwinds. The stocks in our coverage with a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) include, Bon-Ton Stores Inc. ( BONT ), Big 5 Sporting Goods Corp. ( BGFV ), PVH Corp. ( PVH ), The Children''s Place ( PLCE ), Macy’s Inc.

The Swatch Group reported that net sales rose 8.9 percent year on year to $4.3 billion (CHF 4 billion) for the first half that ended on June 30. Sales returns, allowances and discounts increased 4.8 percent to $186 million (CHF 175 million). Profit improved 6.1 percent to $818 million (CHF 768 million). The first half of the year experienced some currency fluctuation, which had only a slightly positive effect of 1 percent on group sales. [b]<a href=http://www.famouswatchesshop.com>Replica Rolex Watches</a>[/b] This year, the Swatch Group redefined and modified its segment reports, combining the “Watches & Jewelry” and “Production” segments into a new “Watches & Jewelry” segment, since the increasing integration of a variety of production processed at headquarters rendered the clear demarcation of that production impossible, the company explained. This trend accelerated in March when Swatch purchased Harry Winston Inc., the impact of which will only really become noticeable in the second half of 2013, according to the company. Watch and jewelry net sales rose 9.3 percent year on year to $4.1 billion (CHF 3.87 billion), while electronic systems sales fell 6.3 percent to $158 million (CHF 148 million). [b][url=http://www.famouswatchesshop.com]Cheap Rolex Watches[/url][/b] Swatch acquired Harry Winston on March 26, which included all jewelry and watch retail activities and a production company in Geneva. As a consequence, Swatch has now incorporated 11 companies into its consolidated structure. These companies will initially appear with provisional values and their balance sheet values will mainly reflect inventories, trade receivables, as well as property, plant and equipment. The net outflow of funds for the Harry Winston purchase was $989 million (CHF 929 million), which included the takeover of $29 million (CHF 27 million) in cash and cash equivalents and $261 millino (CHF 245 million) in net debt. As of the end of June 2013, goodwill, which will be recognized directly in equity, stands provisionally at $606 million (CHF 569 million).[b][url=http://www.famouswatchesshop.com]cheap watches sale[/url][/b] Swatch added that Harry Winston''s infrastructure was upgraded to better utilize a ''''huge potential offered by the brand'''' and its organization. Furthermore, in the first few months following the acquisition, all debt was settled, the equity capital base was expanded and, during this process, the inventory was increased. In May, Swatch invested in the singular, largest and purest diamond in the world to date, a 101.73-carat diamond now bearing the name the ''''Winston Legacy'''' for $26.7 million. Additionally, Swatch stated that the Harry Winston brand has nearly untapped potential in the watch sector, which the company intends to invest in heavily to expand globally. [b][url=http://www.famouswatchesshop.com]buy discount watches[/url][/b] The Swatch Group told shareholders that its outlook ''''remains promising'''' and a strong second half-year is expected, with the launch of the ''''Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra >15000 Gauss,'''' the world’s first real antimagnetic watch, as well as the Swatch ''''Sistem 51,'''' which will be available on the market in November.

Of course, the vast majority of goods sold are priced considerably less, and we learned even billionaires such as Oprah Winfrey hedge at such sky-high prices. She said that had she been given the chance to buy the bag, she probably would have passed.[b][url=http://www.luxurybagssalestore.com]louis vuitton[/url][/b] About 90% of private jet travelers buy some type of luxury fashion and accessories annually – leather goods such as purses, wallets, briefcases and shoes – and the average spent is about US$120,000 per household. The super-rich like Ms. Winfrey likely account for around US$21.6 billion in annual purchases of gowns, skirts, suits, totes and, of course, handbags. Milton Pedraza, the CEO of The Luxury Institute , believes as many as one billion consumers worldwide purchase some type of luxury good or service, be it staying in a five star hotel or buying a luxury brand fragrance or key chain.[b][url=http://www.luxurybagssalestore.com]louis vuitton outlet[/url][/b] If you want another way to think about the luxury product purchasing power of the ultra-high-net-worth sliver of the world’s population, get out a map: Go to the South Pacific and find the 15 strong Cook Islands chain. Single out Rarotonga, a 26 square mile microdot of land that is home to the capital. Now go to North America, a continent accounting for 16% of the world’s landmass, and you will have a good idea about the relationship between the global super rich population and how much they spend. While the jewelry market is more concentrated than fashion, London based diamond house Graff’s 2012 IPO filing, for example, revealed that just 20 customers made up 44% of their US$756 million in annual sales.[b][url=http://www.luxurybagssalestore.com]lv[/url][/b] With the number of ultra-high-net-worth households projected to increase by 50% in the next decade and US$260 billion in new private jets to be delivered by 2020, figuring ways to increase their share of the spending by the super-rich is going to be a key focus for luxury brands, particularly when comparing the marketing costs of reaching a billion people versus the global private jet set.Move up http://i.forbesimg.com tMove downThe Super-Rich Are Spending US$4 Billion Per Year On Adventure TravelRuss Alan PrinceContributorHow Much Money Is Enough?Russ Alan PrinceContributorcomments, called-outComment NowFollow CommentsFollowing CommentsUnfollow CommentsComment NowFollow CommentsFollowing CommentsUnfollow CommentsPrintReport CorrectionsReprints & PermissionsPost Your CommentCancel replyPost Your ReplyPleaselog inorsign upto comment.Enter Your CommentSubmit Comment[b][url=http://www.luxurybagssalestore.com]louis vuitton discount[/url][/b] Forbes writers have the ability to call out member comments they find particularly interesting.

Over the years while he was married to my sister, our relationship ebbed and flowed, as is often the case with brothers-in-law. Since their divorce I ran into him once at a local golf course where I ended up playing with him, and saw him once again at my niece’s wedding. [b][url=http://www.fashionweddingstore.com]wedding dresses cheap[/url][/b] The news of his death was not a surprise as he had been terminally ill for a while. What was surprising was the request from my sister that I officiate as the rabbi at his funeral. My sister had maintained a good relationship with Joel after their divorce and was very involved with his caretaking during his illness. While it is true that I was ordained about 30 years ago at Yeshiva University, I am by no means a professional rabbi. I don’t really know how to “officiate” at a funeral, and was also reluctant because I knew that I would meet a great deal of resistance if I were to impose my own halachic standards on the proceeding. While I am Orthodox, my sister and niece are not. They were not interested in an Orthodox funeral, just for me to be the rabbi. All the other details, such as washing the body, shrouds, round-the-clock guarding the body, simple pine box, they just wouldn’t get, and certainly wouldn’t go for. On the other hand, there was my mother, reminding me of how tragic it would be to have a strange rabbi do the funeral and urging me not to deny my niece this request in her hour of grief. [b][url=http://www.fashionweddingstore.com]discount designer wedding dresses[/url][/b] After discussing this with my own advisers, especially my wife, I decided that what I would do is say a few prayers — I know how to do that — while my niece would give a eulogy. To my mind, I was not exactly “officiating” or being the “rabbi” but just lending a hand. I didn’t feel completely right, but better than I would have felt had I totally declined. [b][url=http://www.fashionweddingstore.com]wedding dresses cheap[/url][/b] When we arrived at the cemetery for the gravesite service, the crowd was sparse, and I wasn’t even sure there were 10 Jews, not to mention a minyan of men. I was worried about this in terms of the Kaddish prayer, and decided that the best thing to do would be to have my niece say it in English. It was a spur-of-the-moment compromise between my concern that the ancient Aramaic Kaddish not be said without the proper quorum, but that some form of it be said for the deceased. Just before the service I gathered with the mourners: my niece, Joel’s brother and father, and explained to them that it was traditional at this time to tear their garments as a sign of mourning. My sister interjected and said, “Oh, can’t they use the ribbons?” My niece looked at me, hoping to spare her lovely black dress, and I said, “Sure, that’s fine.”And then came the conversation about Kaddish. I suggested what we would do at the gravesite, and then added, “Someone should say Kaddish for him for a year.”“What does that mean?” my niece asked. I explained that the prayer should be said for 11 months, at least once a day, and with a minyan. “Well, I’m an atheist,” Joel’s brother responded. “I think religion is all myth,” he added as if I didn’t get his point the first time. Joel’s father, now in his late 80s, told me there was no way he could get to a synagogue. He lived with his atheist son, on whom he was dependent for transportation, and the nearest synagogue was at least 40 miles away. I then told them that they could pay someone to say it. “How much is it?” Joel’s father asked. “About $400,” I answered. Silence. They looked at me as if I had four heads.The next day I was in synagogue, where I find myself most mornings, thinking about the events of the previous day. Overtaken with sadness, I had difficulty focusing on my prayers. Sadness for Joel, for my niece and the other mourners, and for that most ancient of prayers that has sustained and brought solace to the Jewish people for centuries. During my parents’ generation it seemed as if everyone knew and appreciated the significance of Kaddish, and rarely did people die without it being said for them. It is an expression of God’s dominion, of his providence in the lives of his children. And yet, so many of his children have now forgotten its words and meaning. As the moment for the mourners’ Kaddish approached, I stood and uttered the words: “Yitgadal V’yitkadash…” along with the other mourners. I said it for Joel, for his family, and for all those who are unable to say it themselves. I’ve been saying it every day since.Andrew Kane is a clinical psychologist and author, most recently, of the novel “Joshua: A Brooklyn Tale.” Last update:08/13/2013 - 13:32Email articlePrintComment Guidelines The Jewish Week feels comments create a valuable conversation and wants to feature your thoughts on our website.

In the past six years, he accomplished what many retailing experts deemed impossible: He resurrected the Hudson’s Bay Co. , which looked as doomed as the Eaton department stores that never made it past the 20th century.More Related to this Story[b]<a href=http://www.chaneldiscount.com>chanel handbags 2013</a>[/b] DAVID PARKINSONMoody’s fears HBC is stretching debt too far with Saks deal[b][url=http://www.chaneldiscount.com]chanel outlet online[/url][/b] HBC picks up storied American brand with Saks dealHBC shares jump despite dividend cutSaks Fifth Avenue store in New York.

Hudson''s Bay Co, operator of department store chains Lord & Taylor in the United States and The Bay in Canada, said on Monday that it would buy luxury retailer Saks Inc for $16 per share, or $2.9 billion in cash, including debtREUTERSMarket ViewVideo: Market View: Hudson’s Bay deal shows retail a hotbed for mergers ReutersVideoVideo: BMW launches its first fully electric vehicleNow, he is set to acquire the prestigious Saks Inc. chain. Long past is the shock that Canada’s oldest retailer has fallen into the hands of Americans, first of the late Jerry Zucker, then of Mr. Baker. The Bay’s white throws with the bright green, red, yellow and blue stripes are now being waved on Fifth Avenue like Canadian flags.With this unexpected change in fortune, Mr. Baker is now portrayed as the saviour of the Canadian department store, long considered an endangered creature. The designation is seductive, but still quite premature.Mr. Baker is first and foremost a real estate dealer – and a clever one at that. He acquired full control of HBC in 2008 for $1.2-billion, chiefly through the assumption of its debt. Three years later, he made a killing when he resold most of the Zellers store leases to incoming Target Corp. for a whopping $1.8-billion.like the skeptics of 2008, some are now fretting over the $2.4-billion (U.S.) price tag for Saks – which rises to $2.9-billion when the retailer’s debt is included. That’s almost nine times Saks’ operating earnings, compared with a median multiple of eight for similar deals, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. But when you deduct Saks’ property value, which one Citigroup analyst pegs at $1.5-billion, including $805-million for its flagship New York store alone, then the department store chain no longer looks as expensive as a pair of Manolo Blahnik satin pumps.Even if real estate investment trusts are not as glitzy as they were when long-term interest rates were lower, you can bet all your Bay paraphernalia that Mr. Baker will cash in on the money that sleeps under his stores.Evidently, however, such a deal can only be struck once. After that, HBC can only be the savviest retailer in what is becoming a very crowded market for upscale shoppers in Canada.Canadians are getting richer, and retail sales have been holding up surprisingly well, notably in May, but Canada is not going to create more of what are euphemistically called “high net worth individuals” by spontaneous generation. Behind the dressing rooms of hushed stores, the commercial rivalry is bound to get nasty, if not bloody.How has HBC fared so far? It depends on how you look at things. Considering where the Canadian retailer started, it has made considerable progress under the direction of Bonnie Brooks and other smart retail executives, although the flagship city stores have received much of the attention. The rejuvenation of the other department stores still leaves much to be desired.At the Bay’s flagship Montreal store on Saint Catherine Street on Monday, there was none of the ragbag of yesteryear, even if the store was deep into its summer sale. Past the Chanel counter and the new Coach boutique, branded bags were neatly aligned. On the second floor, the trendy Topshop clothes attracted the twentysomething crowd. Close by is Maje, a French retailer that a fashionista friend of mine puts on her must-see list of Paris stores, with a section almost as big as the one at the Galeries Lafayette.The sales clerks anticipate your wishes and inquire about your needs instead of ducking behind a high stack of sweaters, as they seemed to do in the past. But the extra attention also highlights the fact that there aren’t that many shoppers around. Granted, it’s summer and the tourists don’t replace all the vacationers who have left town. But the hard numbers don’t lie.The HBC chains have been playing catch-up in recent years, and there is still a long way to go. The Bay’s sales in 2012 stood at $140 per square foot, a far cry from the average $250 per square foot of its North American peer group, which includes Saks. The U.S. chain also owned by HBC, Lord & Taylor, also lags behind its peers, with sales of $218 per square foot.The Bay still has an excess of retail space on its hands, and adding Saks boutiques within existing stores or converting stores to Saks’ Off Fifth sister discount chain won’t use it all up. HBC still needs to rethink its retail space, given its store locations and their markets, as well as its online shopping sites.This will require a makeover, not just a brush of powder. Which is not to say it cannot be done. Mr. Baker could well tailor himself into a successful retailer. But until HBC’s chains attract crowds of shoppers and sales, he will remain what he has always been: a real estate dealer.

The most effective branding efforts were those that stayed true to their DNA and reinforced the brand lifestyle in new ways.[b][url=http://www.chaneloutletco.com]chanel outlet[/url][/b] Here are the top 10 luxury branding efforts in the first half of 2013, in alphabetical order.BarneysMan Instagram[b]<a href=http://www.chaneloutletco.com>chanel bags outlet</a>[/b] Barneys male-focused Instagram account  – Retailer Barneys New York is targeting social-savvy male consumers through an account on mobile-social application Instagram that is dedicated solely to its men’s collections.[b][url=http://www.chaneloutletco.com]chanel handbags 2013[/url][/b] With this account, the retailer is likely targeting younger men who are active social-media users. Since a large amount of digital fashion content is for women, this will help Barneys stand out in the crowded social space.[b]<a href=http://www.chaneloutletco.com>chanel outlet</a>[/b] The account’s photos range from in-store items and Barneys ads to cocktails and other manly items.Barneys is also taking part in the well-known Instagram tradition of “Throw-back Thursdays” by uploading an older image and using the hashtag #TBT.In addition, the account gives insider access to store happenings around the country.BMW 3 Series BMW’s new sound logo –  German automaker BMW revamped its core branding efforts with a sound logo that is played at the end of television and radio spots.The updated melody is incorporated into BMW’s video and audio branding campaigns to further engage consumers through sound recognition value.BMW has used a double gong sound for the past 14 years, but wanted to make the sound more modern so that it expresses BMW’s power, dynamism and driving pleasure, per the automaker.The melody starts with a rising, resonant sound that is underscored by two distinctive bass tones to form BMW’s logo basis. It builds toward a shimmering, sophisticated finish.Chanel's "The Jacket" film Chanel’s classic jacket –  French fashion house Chanel flaunted the timeless quality of its iconic jacket in a film that outlines the item’s history from 1954 to present day.The film premiered March 13 as the fourth chapter on Inside Chanel, the microsite where the label showcases the people and events that shaped the brand.The video shows how the brand has stuck to the original design by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel with variations of the jacket spanning collections since 1954. It starts by sharing how Ms. Chanel was influenced by flamboyant yet restrictive women’s fashion in the ’50s to create a jacket with masculine notes that active professional women could wear.Chanel also explores how tweed became the signature material for the jacket in the film.Much of the video is archived footage, but toward the end it shows how the jacket was reimagined by Karl Lagerfeld after his appointment in 1983.The Jacket – Inside Chanel Ferragamo spring/summer 2013 Ferragamo’s Philanthropic Foundation -  Footwear and accessories label Salvatore Ferragamo looked to protect its brand legacy, raise public awareness of its values and fuel future talent through the formation of a foundation called Fondazione Ferragamo.The branded foundation was established to shed light on Ferragamo’s standards such as craftsmanship and Italian-made fashion.The founding mission is “to promote and showcase handcraftsmanship and made in Italy products, with a focus on fashion, design and creative and cultural processes in general, in line with the aesthetics and signature style of Salvatore Ferragamo,” per the label.Wanda Miletti Ferragamo, label president and wife of the late founder Salvatore Ferragamo, will serve as the Florence-based foundation’s chairwoman.One key purpose of Fondazione Ferragamo is to raise public awareness of the founder and his works. The foundation looks for ways to show the designer’s role in footwear and international fashion.The second role of the foundation centers on assisting students in their education of design and fashion.Education initiatives focus on passing down Mr. Ferragamo’s values such as craftsmanship, experimentation, technological innovation, creativity and cultural awareness.Fondazione Ferragamo partners with organizations of similar standing to create training courses, laboratories, cultural campaigns and publications.The foundation also gives awards and scholarships to students so that they can create projects and further explore the industry.Gucci 1953 horsebit loafer collection campaign Gucci’s 1953 collection -  Italian fashion house Gucci celebrated the 60th anniversary of its signature horsebit loafers through a cross-channel campaign that included store window displays, print ads, a Facebook application and a social video.The digital promotions came together on the Facebook app where consumers could read about the collection, view the social video, take the “What Loafer Are You?” quiz and browse a blogger style gallery.The social video, which Gucci shared on all of its digital properties, shows the legs of dancers who are wearing shoes from the 1953 horsebit loafer collection. They dance in imperfect harmony to a rock-and-roll song.Gucci also sent an email campaign that described the collection and encouraged recipients to view the video and follow the Twitter hashtag.PPR changes name to Kering Kering’s rebranding campaign –  The conglomerate formerly known as PPR solidified its focus on luxury and sports brands by changing its name at the end of the first quarter.The Paris-based group chose a name change to signify the transition it has made in the past seven years.PPR changed its name to Kering June 18 following approval at the annual general meeting. The conglomerate announced its new name March 22 via a press release.With its new name, Kering is looking to solidify an internal transition that it began in 2005 from a focus on European distribution to apparel and accessories in the luxury and sport sectors.The name is meant to have meaning in the way it is pronounced in English as “caring.” The group is looking to show that it cares for its brands, employees, stakeholders and the environment.Also, “ker” means “home” in Brenton, which is the language spoken in CEO François-Henri Pinault’s homeland of the Brittany region of France, whereas “ing” stands for moving forward.Kering is adopting a new logo of an owl that suggests wisdom and nurturing.The tagline “Empowering Imagination” also goes along with the name change and be the theme of a worldwide campaign.Mercedes-Benz CLA class vehicle Mercedes’ Super Bowl commercial  – Mercedes-Benz USA took a risk launching its Super Bowl XLVII commercial for its CLA vehicle.The first CLA branded video featured model Kate Upton and was considered controversial before it went viral. The video featured Ms. Upton flaunting her assets around a number of football players who are washing a CLA class vehicle.The video was not Mercedes-Benz actual Super Bowl commercial, but it was designed to launch the conversation around the CLA vehicle.The full CLA Super Bowl campaign had four main elements, which were the celebrities, the risky video, the teaser videos and then the final Super Bowl commercial.Signing celebrities such as Ms. Upton and singer-songwriter Usher Raymond IV helped generate buzz around the campaign and target younger consumers.Later, Mercedes released 15- and 30-second teaser video ads on YouTube.The last component was the actual Super Bowl ad featuring a short cameo from Usher. The video was also promoted on the automaker’s social media pages.Saks' LOOK campaign Saks’ LOOK initiative  – Retail chain Saks Fifth Avenue is rebranding itself as a place of fashion inspiration and not just a place to shop with a new forward-looking multichannel campaign.Saks’ “LOOK” initiative is being incorporated into all aspects of the store such as the catalog, Web site, shopping bags, in-store events and visual displays.The department store chain’s fall preview catalog contained a section titled “Making of a Look,” which took 11 designers’ tips on how to style a complete outfit with individual items.The Making of a Look is also being promoted on Saks’ homepage. A click through brings consumers to the Making of a Look section that puts together several outfit ideas all from individual pieces. Consumers can easily shop the looks or separate items from the site.The looks are being put together by a number of fashion icons including Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Mary Kate and Ashley Olson, Stella McCartney and Brunello Cucinelli.These looks will be shown off in retail stores, store windows and online.St. Regis' "Beyond" magazine St. Regis’ lifestyle magazine  – Starwood’s St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is targeting guests with an in-room magazine called “Beyond” that helps the brand relate to the interests and values of its customers.The oversized magazine is published twice a year and offered to guests in their rooms during their stay at each of St. Regis’ 30 hotels around the world. The first issue of Beyond mixed editorial content with a soft push for the brand as well as luxury brand advertisements from Cartier, Gucci, Christian Dior and others.St. Regis placed a number of brand-focused content in the first issue including “where to stay: The St. Regis Beijing; The St. Regis Lhasa Resort” and “The St. Regis Atlas,” which outlines the brand’s international network of 30 hotels.Versace's Millennial-focused Versus Web site Versace’s Versus relaunch  – Italian fashion house Versace targeted entry-level consumers with the launch of its Versus Versace Web site that offers content and ecommerce.The label has been building excitement for the rebranding of Versus through a comprehensive social media and digital campaign that counted down until the official launch and collection presentation May 15 in New York.To prepare for the new line, Versus teased images of the collection and Web site through its social media feeds by sharing images of its models and close-ups of products.On May 8, Versus launched a Google+ page where it began promoting a “hangout” session with Donatella Versace, chief designer of the Versace group.The Versus Web site launched May 15 and was promoted through the brand’s social media accounts.Erin Shea is an editorial assistant on Luxury Daily.

Take my hand as we go over some of this week''s more uplifting headlines.</p><p><strong><a href=http://www.infashionbags.com>authentic bag</a></strong> 1. Waffling about<br> Yum! Brands '' ( NYSE: YUM     ) Taco Bell may have another head-turning hit on its hands.</p><p><strong><a href=http://www.infashionbags.com>bags</a></strong> The fast food chain is expanding its test of a waffle taco that apparently was a hit at the first three Southern California stores it was introduced in earlier this year.</p><p><strong><a href=http://www.infashionbags.com>authentic bag</a></strong> The breakfast treat -- essentially a waffle wrapped around scrambled eggs and a sausage patty -- will be added to roughly 100 stores in three different markets.</p><p><strong><a href=http://www.infashionbags.com>authentic bag</a></strong> This is the kind of news that will draw media attention, just as its Doritos-dusted tacos did last year. We saw how well that played out for Taco Bell, with comps soaring 8% in 2012. The waffle taco won''t have that kind of a dramatic impact on the chain''s business, but it will draw attention to Taco Bell as a breakfast destination.</p><p><strong><a href=http://www.infashionbags.com>authentic bag</a></strong> Now, if only someone could drum up a jalapeno maple syrup.</p><p> 2. Par for the Kors <br> Affluent shoppers are replacing their Coach handbags with Michael Kors '' ( NYSE: KORS     ) luxury goods.</p><p>A week after its larger rival posted disappointing quarterly results that were weighed down by a 1.7% decline in comps at North American stores, Kors posted another blowout quarter , with North American same-store sales surging 25%.</p><p>Revenue itself soared 55%, to $640.9 million, as strong wholesale activity, and brisk expansion on top of the spectacular comps, drove high-end buyers to Kors.

This isn''t the same high-margin model that investors fell in love with when the reborn dot-com darling went public at $20 two years ago. Despite beating on the top line, Groupon merely met bottom-line estimates.</p><p> 4. Lion around <br> Lions Gate Entertainment ( NYSE: LGF     ) is a pretty big cat in Hollywood.</p><p>The media mogul saw its revenue climb 21%, to $569.7 million, and that was despite being stacked against last year''s theatrical success of The Hunger Games . Wall Street was only holding out for $523 million on the top line.</p><p>Strength in television production, home entertainment, and international releases helped offset a dip in domestic box office revenue.</p><p>Lions Gate''s profit of $0.10 a share also surpassed expectations.</p><p>The fun''s likely just getting started at Lions Gate, as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire -- the sequel to last year''s blockbuster -- hits theaters in three months.</p><p> 5. The electric slide <br> Shares of Tesla Motors ( NASDAQ: TSLA     ) hit another all-time high on Thursday after once again surprising analysts with another profitable quarter.</p><p>Tesla delivered a record 5,150 Model S sedans during the quarter, and this week, it began sending cars to Europe. One can always argue that Tesla shouldn''t be exporting its plug-in electric vehicles when there''s a growing number of drivers waiting for their own Model S cars closer to home, but it''s hard to find fault with Tesla''s run.</p><p>Someone who invested a Volt-sized investment in Tesla when they started, can now buy a Model S -- with change to spare.</p><p>Tesla''s valuation isn''t for the squeamish, but when you''re priced for perfection, it helps to be better than perfect.</p><p></p><p> Driving into China <br>China is already the world''s largest auto market -- and it''s set to grow even bigger in coming years.

Their business had operated for three years on union Street in McLouth, but the Reilings, who live in Oskaloosa, needed more space for their expanding business. They can be found just west of Kansas Country Store along U.S. Highway 24-40.August 6, 2013EmailPost a commentPrint[b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel[/url][/b] Rynette Reiling and her daughter, Chanel Reiling, had a grand plan to open a dance studio after Chanel finished college.[b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel handbags replica top quality[/url][/b] The plan underwent some tweaking a few years ago. And now, they have a studio in Tonganoxie.[b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel handbags for sale[/url][/b] The mother and daughter from Oskaloosa opened Studio Chanel and Co. last month at 1203 E. U.S. Highway 24-40 after three years in downtown McLouth.[b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel bags outlet stores[/url][/b] Chanel, who will be a senior at Washburn University when classes start later this month, attended classes and worked at union Street Dance Station in McLouth. About three years ago, owner Kim Robbins decided to close and approached Chanel about taking over the business.[b]<a href=http://www.bagoutletstores.com>chanel handbags for sale</a>[/b] “We prayed about it and number crunched and we decided to do it,” Rynette said.[b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel outlet store[/url][/b] The leap seems to have paid off.Enrollment has tripled since the Reilings started Studio Chanel, Rynette said. Roughly 200 young people ranging in age from 3-18 take classes at the studio, They also average about 25 adults for each Zumba class.Rynette and Chanel decided their business was outgrowing the 2,000-square-foot building in downtown McLouth. Their new location covers 10,000 square feet.“It’s not only bigger space but it has higher ceilings for cheers,” Rynette said.Studio Chanel, which is just west of Kansas Country Store, offers classes in competitive cheer, competitive dance, tap, ballet, jazz and hip-hop, as well as Zumba. Chanel said the studio plans to start offering yoga next month.Though the Reilings originally planned to open the studio after Chanel finished college, it hasn’t hindered her from continuing her education.Chanel is a radiology major. Her sophomore year she was on the Washburn dance team and is a member of the Alpha Phi sorority. She also is doing clinicals in Lawrence while finishing up her degree and overseeing classes at the studio.“I’m in my car a lot,” Chanel said with a laugh.She said the purpose of the studio is to offer youth and adults the opportunity to be active in cheer and various dance and exercise classes without having to travel outside the area. Chanel, who participated in cheerleading and dance at Oskaloosa High and was cheer captain, said her mother told her “she had to have a real job to have a fun job.”“This is my fun job,” she said about the dance studio. “I was on the verge of being a teacher, something with kids. This is my kid outlet because I love kids.”Rynette, also an OHS graduate, was a cheerleader at Oskaloosa before joining the squads at Allen County Community College and then Emporia State University.She said the studio serves students throughout Leavenworth and Jefferson counties and also stretches as far south as Baldwin City and east to Piper and Olathe.Chanel handles operations with the classes, while Rynette specializes in marketing and public relations.Chanel and I are a good team together, Rynette said.She said the studio hopes to offer additional classes in the fall.Classes are offered Saturdays through Thursdays.PrintFavoriteCommentE-mail to a friendFacebookTweetLinkedInStumbleUponGoogle +DeliciousDiggTumblrWordpressRedditCopy and paste the link:CommentsUse the comment form below to begin a discussion about this content.Sign in to comment UsernameI have an account.I''m new.

Separately, the private HSBC purchasing managers'' index fell to an 11-month low of 47.7 from 48.2 in June. Both use a 100-point scale on which numbers below 50 indicate contraction.[b]<a href=http://www.silkroadchina.org>The Tang costume</a>[/b] The unexpected rebound in the official survey offered a glimmer of hope that China''s slowdown is stabilizing. But It is still too early to conclude a decisive growth rebound because the pickup is still far too modest to suggest a clear upward trend, said Wei Yao, China economist at Societe Generale.[b]<a href=http://www.silkroadchina.org>Han Chinese clothing</a>[/b] The results also reflect how China''s small and medium-sized private enterprises, which analysts say make up a bigger share of HSBC''s survey, are more vulnerable to Beijing''s efforts to tighten up lending as well as to slumping global export demand for toys, clothing, electronics and other manufactured goods.China''s big state-owned companies, which take an outsize role in the official survey, have easier access to bank loans and hardly compete in export markets.The HSBC report, covering 420 companies, said output at Chinese manufacturers fell as total new orders dropped at the sharpest rate in 11 months because of a decline in new business in both China and overseas. Export orders fell for the fourth straight month, though at a slower pace. Exporters told researchers that new sales to Europe, Southeast Asia and the U.S. fell from June. Chinese manufacturers shed jobs at the fastest pace in four years.The federation''s survey of 3,000 businesses, meanwhile, found production, new orders and most other sub-indicators ticked up. New export orders improved but remained below an index reading of 50 last month.Fallout from China''s manufacturing slump may be felt globally, as declining orders result in less demand for commodities from countries such as Australia and Brazil and for industrial components from Southeast Asia, Taiwan and South Korea.China has recorded five straight quarters of growth below 8 percent, a substantial economic cooling for a country that previously grew at double-digit rates.Analysts said the survey results indicate smaller private companies may still be feeling the effects of a credit shortage that began in June as Chinese regulators try to rein in a lending boom over fears it could race out of control. The credit crunch caused interest rates on loans between banks to spike to a record high.Smaller companies probably have been affected more by the liquidity squeeze, said Yao.China''s central bank wants to tighten lending standards, which should reduce risk but is likely to reduce financing for private businesses that generate China''s new jobs and wealth.We shouldn''t dismiss the positive side in the official PMI, but at the same time the HSBC PMI is a reminder that things are still difficult especially, with smaller companies, she said. So basically that suggests as a whole if there is a recovery, it''s a very gradual one and it''s still quite unstable.[b][url=http://www.silkroadchina.org]The Tang costume[/url][/b][b][url=http://www.silkroadchina.org]The Han Dynasty costumes[/url][/b]

We''ve always had at least 5-7 percent growth there, also in the high end, he said in a telephone interview. He confirmed that the group''s strong mid-range brands, Longines and Tissot, as well as its colorful Swatch plastic watches should continue to grow in double-digits in the region. Sales of costly watches in China have been hit by a government crackdown on gifts to officials and business leaders to facilitate transactions. France''s Hermes said last week it had also been affected by this trend. Gross sales at Swatch increased a slightly better-than-expected 8.7 percent to 4.181 billion francs ($4.47 billion) in the first half of the year, significantly less than the 14.4 percent growth seen in the year-ago period. The U.S. market is doing very well, the UK is improving and tourist shopping is supporting Italy, Hayek said. France is giving us a bit of a headache, without the tourists, there would be hardly any consumption there. He said the group might be able to achieve 9 billion Swiss francs in gross sales this year if the dollar rose a bit and if the group could build enough stock to satisfy high demand for jewellery made by the newly acquired Harry Winston brand. It is currently Swatch Group''s priority to put production back on track at Canadian jeweler Harry Winston, which it bought for almost $1 billion this year, Hayek said. NECKLACES AND RINGS We need a lot of high-end products at Harry Winston so we can satisfy all these customers walking, for example, into our store on (New York''s) 5th Avenue to buy necklaces and rings in the range of more than $10 million. So you can imagine that it is crucial that enough products are available in the store. Hayek said stocks at the brand were quite low now but he wanted to increase them to about $800 million to ensure he had $30-40 million in stock at each of the brand''s 23 stores. Hayek said the group''s operating margin could bounce back to 24-25 percent in the second half after dropping to 22.7 percent in the first, hit by high expenses for the Basel watch fair and investment into new products, such as its mechanical Swatch watch Sistem51 and an antimagnetic Omega. I gave the green light to spend an additional 40 million francs on marketing in June just to promote our new products at Swatch, Omega and Longines. ... I don''t care if that hit our margin in the short term, it''s the long term that counts. Shares in Swatch were up 3.1 percent by 1132 GMT, outperforming a flat sector index , after falling some 12 percent from May''s all-time high as markets were pricing in a forthcoming weak first half. Luxury goods group Richemont , which also hit a peak in May, has shed only 5 percent. They trade at about 15.1 times forward earnings, according to Reuters data, at a discount to Richemont at 16.8 times and LVMH at 16.7 times. Citi analyst Thomas Chauvet said the expectations for a rebound in demand and margins in the second half were already largely priced in and he expected consensus to come down. Net profit was up 6.1 percent to 768 million francs, ahead of a 728 million estimate in a Reuters poll, with analysts citing a better-than-expected financial result and a lower tax rate.
