At the same time, we believe that advertising should be carried out in a socially responsible manner, and have adjusted our marketing approach accordingly.” Casino & games These figures come after Kindred last month became the first top-tier operator to report how much of their revenue came from at-risk gamblers. In 2020, 58,000 personalized messages promoting responsible gambling were sent out to those detected by the system who were deemed to be problem players. The operator also outlined these figures in more detail in its report.

first_img FTSE 250 financial trading firm Plus500 (LSE:PLUS) has seen its share price rise a meteoric 77% since the stock market crash in March and it is up 103% in a year.Founded by a group of Israelis 12 years ago, the company was designed to provide a high-tech trading platform to ordinary retail investors. It is a global company that has enjoyed considerable success. Users have the option to trade a variety of financial instruments on the Plus500 site. Along with equities, you can trade cryptocurrencies, indices, forex, commodities, options, and ETFs.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…It specialises in CFD trading, which stands for contract-for-difference. This is a way of trading without buying the underlying asset. It can be lucrative, but is complex and highly risky because you can lose money rapidly due to borrowing the capital needed to invest through leverage.Lucrative response to volatilityYet with the coronavirus pandemic creating high volatility across global equity markets, Plus500 has been in the perfect position to reap the rewards. The Plus500 share price has performed exceptionally well this year, but this upward trend may not be sustainable. During the cryptocurrency boom of 2017/18, the FTSE 250 company enjoyed a chart-busting year, only to slump once the volatility subsided.New customer acquisitions and commissions on customer trading contribute to company revenue. During Q4 of 2017, at the height of the Bitcoin boom, Plus500 brought in more than 150,000 new customers. By comparison in Q4 2019, it brought in just under 19,500. In Q1 2020, it was close to 83,000 new customers, but that was well short of the earlier Bitcoin-driven surge.Despite this, market volatility is likely to remain in play for some time to come. The pandemic has not been eradicated and although lockdowns are tentatively easing, it is not yet clear how successful this will be. The US-China trade war is reigniting and deep unrest in America is causing further concern. Geopolitical tensions are still apparent in the oil markets, which have a direct effect on the stability of equity markets. For these reasons, I think Plus500 will continue its good run for some time to come.Strong financialsThe company’s shareholder returns policy is to give back at least 60% of net profits to shareholders every six months. Plus500 has a price-to-earnings ratio of 11, which is attractive to investors. It offers a 4% dividend yield and earnings per share are £1.09. The group also has little debt, which makes me think these financials look good as a long-term income investment.Nevertheless, it still carries some risk. In 2019, the UK financial regulator introduced tougher rules for trading CFDs, which negatively affected Plus500’s profit margins. The regulator put these changes in place to protect consumers from the high risk of monetary loss. Plus500 competes with IG Group and CMC Markets, which were also affected. Similar regulations are looming in Australia, which is likely to further affect its bottom line.

first_imgMonday Apr 26, 2010 Best tries of the Top 14 – Round 25 After some big hits in the past few days, we start the week with some tries as we catch up with Round 25 of action in the French Top 14. Here’s the top ten tries, as chosen by canal+ television station. It was a week back but good tries are good tries, and many of you seem to enjoy these compilations. While the tries on display this time around arent as good as previous weeks, theres still a few that are worth checking out. One of the tries on show is quite an interesting one, in that theyve included an impressive maul that results in Johnny Leoo diving over against Biarritz. Certainly not what were used to seeing. Theres also the two tries from that ferocious Toulon vs Perpignan clash, namely to Luke Rooney and Farid Sid, and at number one is a try scored by League convert Karmichael Hunt, who got on the end of a free flowing movement after a good run by Damien Traille.

Nationally, there are 24 such partnerships working to make an impact in local communities.

It does this by brokering relationships between employers and the community. These can be in the form of reading volunteers, one-off team challenges and longer-term professional business advice for charities and social entrepreneurs. This year over 100 organisations have encouraged more than 5,000 staff to participate in supporting local projects as they understand the benefits to their employees and company of getting involved.

first_imgPhoto: Gino PepiOakland, Calif., Aug. 4 — Gov. Jerry Brown intervened at the 11th hour and called for an investigation into the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency’s negotiations with the BART workers, narrowly averting a strike which would have started on the morning of Aug. 5. According to today’s San Francisco Chronicle, this means there can be no strike for the next seven days.More than 1,000 workers and community members rallied and marched in downtown Oakland on Aug. 1 to show support for the BART workers, whose 30-day, state-brokered temporary work agreement expires at midnight tonight. The workers had walked out for four-and-a-half days beginning July 1 when their contract expired.BART management has launched an aggressive media campaign, trying to turn the public against the 2,600 workers. The workers haven’t had a raise since they took major concessions in 2009, saving the transportation agency $100 million. BART officials claim they would have to raise fares by 18 percent over three years to pay for workers’ raises and to maintain their current level of benefits. However, BART is seeing record ridership, averaging 400,000 riders on weekdays, and has projected a $125 million-a-year surplus for the next 10 years. (SF Chronicle, July 30)The Aug. 1 rally was called by Amalgamated Transit Union Locals 1555 and 192, Service Employees Local 1021, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3993, and International Longshore Warehouse Union Local 10. It was endorsed by both the San Francisco and the Alameda Central Labor Councils.Speakers included Danny Glover, a Screen Actors Guild member who has a long history of being a champion of labor and anti-racist and anti-war struggles; Clarence Thomas, ILWU Local 10 past secretary-treasurer and co-chair of the Million Workers March; Jeralynn Blueford, mother of Alan Blueford, who was killed by Oakland police last year; Chris Finn, recording secretary of ATU 1555; and Robbie Donohoe, member of IBEW and Fight for $15 organizer.Enthusiastic marchers headed to the BART headquarters, where they militantly converged against the large plate-glass entryway. They shouted slogans against the notorious Thomas Hock, who BART executives paid $399,000 to bring in as their chief negotiator. A Veolia Transportation vice president, Hock has a record of provoking transit strikes in cities across the country.According to the rally’s press release, organizers hoped the event would “help turn the tide on the austerity assault that has led not only to attacks on labor, jobs, and pay, but also to essential public programs like public education, Medicare, Social Security, housing, and transit needed by all of us whether we are employed, unemployed, or underemployed.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

If that holds true, 2014 net farm income would be the lowest since 2010, but would still remain more than $25 billion above the previous 10-year annual average.   Net cash income is forecast at $123 billion, down 6 percent from 2013.   Net cash income is projected to decline less than net farm income primarily because it includes the sale of more than $10 billion in carryover stocks from 2013.  Net farm income reflects only earnings from current calendar-year production.  The forecast was released earlier this week.  After adjusting for inflation, 2013’s net farm income is expected to be the highest since 1973.  The 2014 net farm income forecast would be the fifth highest. Total production expenses are forecast to be 4 percent higher in 2014, which would be the fifth consecutive increase since last falling in 2009. Livestock receipts are expected to increase by more than 15 percent in 2014, due to a 21-percent increase in dairy, a 20-percent increase in hog, and a 15-percent increase in cattle receipts.  Crop receipts are expected to decrease 7 percent in 2014, led by a $12.8-billion decline in corn receipts.

Shayeb was arrested on 26 March in connection with libel suits brought by Palestinian foreign minister Riyad al-Malki and the head of the Palestinian diplomatic mission in France, Hael Al Fahoum.The suits were prompted by an article Shayeb wrote for the Jordanian daily Al-Ghad in January about alleged corruption within the diplomatic mission in France.“We condemn the exorbitant size of the damages being sought by the plaintiffs – 6 million dollars – and the court’s decision to keep Shayeb in police custody for another two weeks. We also urge the Palestinian judicial system to respect Shayeb’s right not to reveal his sources, a right that is recognized by Palestinian law”, Reporters Without Borders said.Shayeb’s story cited unidentified sources for his claim that both the head of the mission in France and his deputy were involved in cases of corruption. His story also accused them of trying to recruit Palestinians residing in France to spy on Islamist groups on french soil. The court’s decision to keep him in custody was reportedly a result of his refusal to name these sources.Shayeb’s arrest has been widely condemned by journalists and civil society organizations in the Palestinian Territories. His lawyer said: “The entire Palestinian press has been put on trial, not just Yousef Shayeb, who just did his duty as a journalist by reporting information supported by sources.”The Palestinian diplomatic mission in France confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that ambassador Fahoum is suing Shayeb for libel while foreign minister Malki said: “All that we are asking of the prosecutor general is to investigate this case and to convict us if Shayeb’s claims prove to be true and to convict him if his information proves to be false, defamatory and insulting.” News May 28, 2021 Find out more RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes May 16, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 3, 2021 Find out more RSF_en March 30, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist accused of libel held for another 15 day Receive email alerts PalestineMiddle East – North Africa News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa last_img read more

It is not known if the Pasadena business is included in the sale.City officials said they are looking into the transaction to get more information.A Conditional Use Permit in Pasadena to sell cannabis could be worth millions. If High Times, does buy the Pasadena business and move into the Pasadena Avenue storefront where Harvest applied to do business, the company could get Harvest CUP — but most likely officials at City Hall would still perform some type of review on High Times and its executives.“Generally, if you buy a business with a CUP, the CUP goes with the business location,” said Planning Director David Reyes. “But that is not necessarily the case with a new cannabis permit which has not been issued. As for Harvest and a cannabis permit, we don’t have all the facts so we will take a look.”Harvest, Integral, MME Pasadena Retail, Atrium, Tony Fong (Varda) and Sweetflower beat out more than 100 other companies in the city’s selection process for the right to apply for a CUP.So far only Harvest and Integral have been awarded CUPs. Hearings for MME and Varda did not go forward on Wednesday due to information about MME in the letter, for information on that please see our related story.In its application, Integral CEO, Armen Yemenidjian said he would oversee all operations in Pasadena and fulfill all community and benefits.But earlier this month, Yemenidjian resigned to spend more time with his family.According to Todd, Yemenidjian was the CEO of Integral during the cannabis permit screening process and the CUP application process, and his purported ongoing involvement in the project was, “per the Selection Committee, a basis for its selection of Integral as a ‘top six.’”“The city should consider and investigate these material changes at Integral/Essence and Harvest also, and must not move forward with any final permitting of any of these applicants until these issues are addressed.last_img read more
