發布時間︰

傅雷的母親李欲振,身材短小卻端莊秀麗,又賢淑能干,極有主見,人們尊稱她為鵬少奶奶。族中或鄰里發生了糾葛磨擦,往往請她出來評理調解,只要有她說上幾句勸說的話,雙方就能心平氣和下來。丈夫的先災後病,花去了大量錢財,家道迅即衰退下來,一年中又連失4口,這種精神上的壓力,對一個女子來說,是何等地巨大呵!但傅雷的母親,並沒有被接連而來的災禍壓倒沖垮,她頑強地要闖過這個難關。 另一件牽掛的事是你說的搬房子問題。按照彌拉六一年三月給我們畫的圖樣,你現在不是除了studio[工作室,音樂室]以外,還有一間起居室嗎?孩子和你們倆也各有臥房,即使比沒有孩子的時候顯得擠一些,總還不至于住不下吧?倫敦與你等級輩份相仿的青年演奏家,恐怕未必住的地方比你更寬敞。你既不出去應酬,在家也不正式招待,不需要顧什麼排場;何況你也不喜歡講究排場,跟你經常來往的少數人想必也氣味相投,而決非看重空場面的人。你一向還認為樸素是中國人的美德,尤其中國藝術家傳統都以清貧自傲︰像你目前的起居生活也談不到清貧,能將就還是將就一下好。有了孩子,各式各樣不可預料的支出隨著他年齡而一天天加多;即使此刻手頭還能周轉,最好還是存一些款子,以備孩子身上有什麼必不可少的開支時應用。再說,據我從你六一年租居的經過推想,倫敦大概用的是“典屋”(吾國舊時代也有類似的辦法,我十歲以前在內地知道有這種規矩,名目叫“典屋”,不是後來上海所通行的“頂”)的辦法︰開始先付一筆錢,以後每季或每月付,若干年後付滿了定額,就享有永久(或半永久)的居住權,土地則一律屬于政府,不歸私人。這種屋子隨時可以“轉典”出去,原則上自己住過幾年,轉典的價必然比典進時的原價要減少一些,就是說多少要有些損失。除非市面特別好所謂國民經濟特別景氣的時期,典出去的價格會比典進來時反而高。但是你典出了原住的房子,仍要典進新的屋子,假如市面好,典出的價格高,那末典進新屋的價也同樣高︰兩相抵銷,恐怕還是自己要吃虧的;因為你是要調一所大一些的屋子,不是原住的屋子大而調進的屋子小;屋子大一些,典價當然要高一些,換句話說,典進和典出一定有差距,而且不可能典出去的價錢比典進來的價錢高。除非居住的區域不同,原來的屋子在比較高級的住宅區,將來調進的屋子在另一個比較中級的住宅區︰只有這個情形之下,典出去的價才可能和典進較大的新屋的價相等,或者反而典出去的價高于典進新屋的價。你說,我以上的說法(更正確的說來是推測)與事實相符不相符?除開典進典出的損失,以及今後每月或每季的負擔多半要加重以外,還有些問題需要考慮︰(一)你住的地方至少有一間大房間必須裝隔音設備,這一筆費用很大,而且並不能增加屋子的市價。比如說你現住的屋子,studio[工作室,音樂室]有隔音設備,可並不能因此而使典出去的價錢較高,除非受典的人也是音樂演奏家。(二)新屋仍須裝修,如地毯,窗簾等等,不大可能老屋子里原有的照樣好拿到新屋子用。這又是一筆可觀的支出,(三)你家的實際事務完全由彌拉一個人頂的,她現在不比六一年;有了孩子,不搬家也夠忙了,如果為了搬家忙得影響身體,也不大上算。再說,她在家忙得團團轉,而正因為太忙,事情未必辦得好;你又性急又挑剔,看了不滿意,難免一言半語怪怨她,叫她吃力不討好,弄得怨氣沖天,影響兩人的感情,又是何苦呢!?因此種種,務望你回去跟彌拉從長計議,把我信中的話細細說與她听,三思而行,方是上策。這件事情上,你岳父的意見不能大相信,他以他的地位,資歷,看事情當然與我們不同。況且他家里有僕役,恐怕還不止一個,搬家在他不知要比你省事省力多少倍︰他認為輕而易舉的事,在你可要花九牛二虎之力。此點不可不牢牢記住!超碰成人免费视频公开播放 英法文信件以及中文信中夾用的外文,均由香港翻譯協會副會長、香港中文大學翻譯系主任、法國文學博士金聖華女士翻譯,在此表示深切的謝意。免费视频公开超碰 正直的戰士,保衛著祖國的森林、海洋、城廓和田野,也應當保衛潔白的心靈和智慧的前額。超碰vip在线视频 黃山(始信峰古松)1956

Today, Unilever announced its results for the first half of 2019, which show underlying sales growth of 3.3%, led by our emerging market business which grew 6.2%.

  • Underlying sales grew 3.3% with volume 1.2% and price 2.1%
  • Emerging markets underlying sales growth 6.2% with volume 2.5% and price 3.6%
  • Turnover decreased 0.9% driven by the sale of our spreads business, partially offset by a 1.1% currency benefit
  • Underlying operating margin increased 50bps with 30bps from gross margin
  • Operating margin increased by 40bps
  • Underlying earnings per share increased 5.0%, with constant EPS up 3.0%

Commenting on the results, CEO Alan Jope says: “We have delivered consistent growth within our guided range for 2019, led by our emerging markets. Accelerating growth remains our top priority and we continue to evolve our portfolio and seek out fast growth channel and geographical opportunities, as well as address those performance hotspots where growth is falling short of our aspirations.

“For the full year, we continue to expect underlying sales growth to be in the lower half of our multi-year 3-5% range, an improvement in underlying operating margin that keeps us on track for the 2020 target and another year of strong free cash flow. Our sustainable business model and portfolio of purpose-led brands are key to delivering superior long-term financial performance.”

Our markets

Growth in our markets was mixed. Market growth in Europe and North America was held back by the impact of weather on ice cream sales. In the emerging markets we continued to see good momentum particularly in China and South East Asia. India saw strong market growth, though it moderated, as expected. Argentina remains hyperinflationary and high levels of pricing continue to weigh on consumer demand.

Unilever overall performance

Underlying sales grew 3.3% with 1.2% from volume and 2.1% from price. Emerging markets grew 6.2%, led by Asia/AMET/RUB, which saw broad-based geographic growth, whilst developed markets were weaker.

In the second quarter, we estimate the 2018 truckers’ strike in Brazil increased USG by 100bps. Second quarter growth was suppressed by around 50bps due to weak ice cream performance; a result of poorer weather, particularly in Europe following two years of very strong summers. 80bps of Argentina price growth in the quarter was excluded from USG due to hyperinflationary status.

Turnover in the first half decreased 0.9% driven by the sale of the spreads business, partially offset by a currency benefit of 1.1%.

Underlying operating margin improved by 50bps. Gross margin was up 30bps, helped by efficiencies from our 5S programme. Overheads had an adverse impact on underlying operating margin of 10bps. Our change programmes have helped to address stranded costs following the disposal of spreads and we continue to invest in the ongoing digital transformation of our business. Brand and marketing investment decreased compared to the prior year, as we continued to deliver zero-based budgeting savings ahead of target, with an increased focus on digital spend. More than two thirds of savings have been reinvested, largely behind innovations and new brand launches.

Beauty & Personal Care

Underlying sales in our Beauty & Personal Care division grew 3.3%.

Deodorants performed well, supported by our Rexona Clinical and Dove Zero aluminium ranges, alongside the extension of Love, Beauty & Planet. New formats continued to drive sales in skin cleansing, including the incremental launch of Dove bath bombs as well as Dove foaming handwash. Good performance in skin care was supported by on-trend innovations including Pond’s InstaBright Glow cream. Hair care saw only modest growth for the first half, with a challenging second quarter particularly in the US. Oral care returned to growth in the second quarter, helped by innovations such as Closeup natural whitening toothpaste and Signal White Now. Our prestige brands, including Dermalogica, Hourglass and REN, saw double digit growth overall, and we announced the acquisitions of Garancia and Tatcha, which are not yet included in USG.

Underlying operating margin in Beauty & Personal Care increased by 100bps, driven by efficiency programmes in brand and marketing investment.

Home Care

Underlying sales in our Home Care division grew 7.4%.

Fabric solutions performed strongly, benefiting from premiumisation and the execution of our strategy to move consumers into products with additional consumer benefits, including Omo Perfect Wash in Brazil. China saw good performance from the relaunch of Omo while in India Surf excel continued to grow double digit. Seventh Generation continues to be rolled out in Europe and North Asia, building on the naturals trend. Home and hygiene grew well, supported by double digit growth from Sunlight, and we launched innovations such as the Cif Cleaner Choices range with natural cleaning ingredients. In Indonesia we used our Home Care brands to run the mosque cleaning programme during Ramadan, an example of purpose-led growth. Good growth in fabric sensations was supported by the launch of a redesigned Comfort core range, focusing on clothes care, as well as a natural variants range. The life essentials category was flat.

Underlying operating margin in Home Care increased by 120bps, with improvements in gross margin, as well as efficiencies in brand and marketing investment and overheads.

Foods & Refreshment

Underlying sales in our Food & Refreshment division grew 1.3%.

In tea, sales declined with volumes impacted by weak consumer demand in developed markets. This was partially offset by black tea in emerging markets and our fruit, herbal and green tea ranges, including Pukka’s premium herbal offering. Sales in dressings were flat with volumes slightly down as competitive intensity remained high. Despite poorer weather in the second quarter compared to the previous two years, ice cream grew slightly over the half. We saw good ice cream performance in Asia/AMET/RUB and from innovations such as Magnum White Chocolate and Cookies. Savoury performance was helped by the launch of new snack pot variants meeting the trend towards convenience. The introduction of Hellmann’s Burger and Spicy Dipping sauces continue to broaden the brand beyond core mayonnaise, and Sir Kensington’s performed well.

Underlying operating margin in Foods & Refreshment decreased by 40bps, as a result of an adverse impact on overheads related to the disposal of our spreads business.
