first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL CONSUMER spending showed another month of modest growth in November, according to data released today.Yet shop vacancies have risen compared with last year as the high street cuts back on costs.Prospects for Christmas sales remain “delicately poised” following the early winter freeze, said the British Retail Consortium (BRC), which conducted the survey with accountants KPMG.Sales were up 2.8 per cent in November, compared to the same time last year, similar to growth seen in recent months.And “like-for-like” sales – which exclude the effects of shop floor expansion – were up just 0.7 per cent for November.“Given that VAT pushed up annual inflation, boosting sales values, underlying volume growth is virtually zero,” said Stephen Robertson of BRC.Sales of “big ticket” items were affected by low consumer confidence, the report said.British consumer confidence tumbled to an 18-month low in November, figures from the European Commission revealed last week.Yet retailers remain confident that shoppers will boost spending in the final weeks of the holiday season. A recent survey by the Confederation of British Industry showed that 59 per cent of retailers expected higher December sales than last year. And the government’s spending cuts, outlined in November, “have not made things worse,” said Robertson.West End stores are extending their opening hours on the Monday after Christmas, in a bid to tempt shoppers into stocking up before the VAT rise on 4 January.

first_img Pennsylvania fantasy sports revenue hits $2.9m in October Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter DFS AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter US state took over $435,000 in tax from fantasy sports activities Tags: Fantasy Sports Online Gambling 21st November 2018 | By contenteditor Pennsylvania saw fantasy sports revenue grow to $2.90m (£2.3m/€2.5m) in October, a 36% increase on the previous month.Figures from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) show that revenue has grown significantly from the $2.13m total in September, with the vast majority generated by daily fantasy sports market leaders DrafKings and FanDuel. DraftKings retained its position as the state’s fantasy sports market leader, with revenue climbing 32% month-on-month to $1.55m, ahead of FanDuel on $1.25m.In a distant third place was SportsHub Technologies, which posted revenue of $41,572. This was a significant improvement on the operator’s performance in September, when its revenue amounted to just $270.49. As a result DRAFT was pushed back into fourth place, despite revenue almost doubling to $36,592.The growth in revenue, which is taxed at 15%, saw tax generated from seven of the state’s nine licensed fantasy sports operators grow 36% to $435,429. Two of the licensees, Full Time Fantasy Sports and Fantasy Football Players Championship, did not generate any revenue during the month.Following the opening of Pennsylvania’s fantasy sports market in May, the state has taken another step towards expanding its gambling market with the launch of legal sports betting earlier this week. Penn National Gaming-owned Hollywood Casino took the first legal bets on November 17, following two days of testing.Sports betting is currently limited to land-based venues, but Penn National has previously said it expects the first online bets to be taken in Q1 2019.Image: Keith Allison Email Address Topics: Finance Sports betting DFS Regions: US Pennsylvanialast_img read more

Edward Sheldon, CFA | Monday, 10th May, 2021 | More on: LLOY Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) shares have been performing well. Since 9 November, when Pfizer announced it had developed a Covid-19 vaccine, Lloyds’ share price has jumped from 27p to 47p, which represents a gain of nearly 75%. Meanwhile, over a 12-month timeframe, the stock is up a little over 50%.Are Lloyds shares worth buying today? Let’s take a look at the investment case.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…Will the Lloyds share price continue to recover?I think Lloyds’ share price could continue to rise from here. There are a few reasons why. The first is that business conditions for UK banks are improving dramatically now that vaccines are being rolled out.Last week, the Bank of England said it expects the UK economy to grow 7.25% this year – the fastest rate in more than 70 years. This kind of GDP growth should benefit Lloyds which is, essentially, a play on the UK economy.It’s worth noting that in Lloyds’ recent Q1 update, the bank upgraded its guidance for 2021. It now expects interest margin to be in excess of 245 basis points, versus previous guidance was 240 points. Meanwhile, it now expects a statutory return on tangible equity of between 8% to 10%, versus previous guidance of 5-7%.The second is that City analysts are currently upgrading their earnings forecasts for the bank. Over the last month, for example, the consensus earnings per share forecast for 2021 has risen from about 4.3p to 5.6p. This kind of upgrade activity can boost a company’s share price.The third is that sentiment towards beaten-up ‘cyclical’ stocks continues to improve. Recently, investors have been piling money into stocks that could benefit as the world reopens. I think this trend could continue for a while yet.Finally, Lloyds has started paying dividends again. This is an issue I discussed last week. With the bank now intending to resume a ‘progressive’ and ‘sustainable’ dividend policy, it could attract income investors. This could boost its share price further.Should I buy LLOY shares now?Having said all this, Lloyds is not a stock I’d buy today. One reason for this is I have concerns in relation to the long-term outlook for the banking industry. I believe we’re going to see an enormous amount of disruption in this space from financial technology (FinTech) companies such as PayPal, Square, and Wise in the years ahead.With many consumers now using digital wallet apps, such as PayPal and Cash App for savings and payments, banks’ access to cheap funding via current accounts is under threat.Secondly, I think UK interest rates are likely to remain low for a while. This could hinder Lloyds’ profitability going forward as banks make a lot of their money from the spread between lending rates and borrowing rates (which is compressed when interest rates are low).I’ll point out that I do own a few Lloyds shares in my portfolio. I’m going to hold on to them for now. However, I won’t be investing more capital into Lloyds. I think there are better stocks I could buy today. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment.

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Wales have made four changes, one positional, to their starting line-up for the visit of the World Champion South Africans to the Millennium Stadium on Saturday following defeat to Australia in the Invesco Perpetual Series opener last weekend.Lee Byrne returns from injury to fill the full-back birth leaving Ospreys colleague James Hook to take up his position at inside centre, partnering Blues stalwart Tom Shanklin at the expense of another Osprey Andrew Bishop who moves to the bench.The other change in the backline sees uncapped Scarlets wing and former Llandovery and Scarlets Academy player George North handed his first international chance, and become Wales’ 1,078th player, at just 18 years of age.Up front the coaches have said same again to the forward pack, led by captain Matthew Rees, which impressed against the Wallabies last time out with the exception of Martyn Williams who returns in the back row for his 97th cap in place of his injured Blues colleague Sam Warburton (calf).Elsewhere, Ryan Jones (Ospreys) and Andy Powell (Wasps) both return to bench duty in place of the promoted Williams and Dieniol Jones (Blues), who misses out, while Ospreys pivot Dan Biggar makes way for Bishop.“We worked hard last week on ensuring we were combative up front, we put a huge emphasis on forward play in training and we now know we can bring that kind of game into play when necessary,” said Gatland. “We were happy with aspects of our performance against Australia, but you can’t work on everything in just a two week build up and we have been able to introduce new aspects this week.The coaches have told the players they have a licence to be creative, to be confident with the ball in hand, to offload and to be positive in attack, we need to build on that performance last week.“We know this is a bold selection, but we have always tried to look at the bigger picture and George (North), today, is the bigger picture and at 6ft 4 inches and 16stone 7lbs he gives us quite a canvass to work with.“There is no pressure on him, he just needs to go out and enjoy the experience of winning his first cap.“With Lee Byrne back at full-back and James Hook hopefully with the ball in his hands more often at centre we have plenty of experience and guile around in our back line and are simply looking for the same again up front.”WALES: 15 Lee Byrne; 14 George North, 13 Tom Shanklin, 12 James Hook, 11 Shane Williams; 10 Stephen Jones, 9 Mike Phillips; Gethin Jenkins, Matthew Rees (C), Adam Jones, Bradley Davies, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Lydiate, Martyn Williams, Jonathan Thomascenter_img Replacements: 16 Huw Bennett, 17 Paul James, 18 Ryan Jones, 19 Andy Powell, 20 Richie Rees, 21 Andrew Bishop, 22 Chris Czekajlast_img read more

As one walks around the building it reveals its characters, punctured wall with windows of various size and hues, telescopic vaults and sloping roofs at jaunty angles. Save this picture!© Vivek MuthuramalingamThough located near a lake in the north- it exactly is not a very pleasant view at lower levels since there is also a large storm water drain flowing at the edge. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe brief required the home to have two living spaces – a small self-sufficient guest wing and the home for the family. The guest wing has a large bedroom with accessible toilet, a living room and a kitchenette there by making it age friendly. The family wing has three bedrooms, living, dining and kitchen .Binding the two wings together is a large internal courtyard with a palm tree which has been retained. Save this picture!© Gautam VishwanathAll the common areas of both the wings open up into this courtyard which has been landscaped with indigenous plants, while bedrooms enjoy spectacular scenery of the lake against the setting sun. The main door opens into this courtyard which also becomes the semi open living room. The courtyard is divided into two with a connecting verandah. This verandah has a swing and large enough space to accommodate other free chairs. The verandah is placed above the underground rainwater tank. Save this picture!© Vivek MuthuramalingamIn the main unit, the living dining area is roofed by three telescopic vaults. Bangalore’s sun is not very strong most of the year and it is best suited that light is taken from the above rather than from sides. The telescoping of vaults create a clerestory openings both on north and southern ends with southern clerestory being slightly shaded. This is achieved by making vaults of two sizes. Two smaller vaults which telescope into a larger concrete vault are made of hollow clay. Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe clerestory windows are fixed windows with calligraphy grills. A small powder room is ensconced between the kitchen, bedroom and dining. This has a built-in granite wash basin and the tap is of granite operated by foot pedal.  Save this picture!© Vivek MuthuramalingamThe master bedroom has the patterned windows on the west, and a window seat which allows for cooler breeze from the garden.

The stabilized adobes have been used for the guest wing. Here was a learning that stabilized adobes can be as structurally strong as CSEBs but are a method to be adopted where the dependence and skills required to use a machine can be avoided-thereby easing use of earth as a building material.Project gallerySee allShow lessExhibition: SUB URBANISMS: Casino Urbanization, Chinatowns, and the Contested Americ…EventCall for Papers: Alternative and Renewable Energy QuestEvent Sharecenter_img 2013 Year:  CopyAbout this officeBiome Environmental SolutionsOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBengaluruIndiaPublished on September 26, 2015Cite: “Residence for Charis / Biome Environmental Solutions” 25 Sep 2015.

Christian Aid warns corporate social responsibility can be mere rhetoriccenter_img “The problem with CSR,” says Christian Aid in a new report, “is that it is unable to deliver on its grand promises.”Christian Aid is arguing that too often Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is simply a case of businesses “peddling fine words and lofty sentiments.”The report, “Behind the mask: the real face of corporate social responsibility”, criticises the burgeoning industry behind corporate social responsibility. Using case studies about Shell, British American Tobacco and Coca Cola, Christian Aid says that “the rhetoric can also mask corporate activity that makes things worse for the communities in which they work.” Advertisement Tagged with: Research / statistics “Some of those shouting the loudest about their corporate virtues are also among those inflicting continuing damage on communities where they work – particularly poor communities,” says Andrew Pendleton, senior policy officer at Christian Aid and author of the report. “Legally binding regulation is now needed to lessen the devastating impact that companies can have in an ever-more globalised world.” The report concludes that the voluntary approach to improving corporate behaviour is wholly inadequate and that international legally binding standards are now needed.Christian Aid is a member of the Corporate Responsibility (CORE) campaign, which is backing the Performance of Companies and Government Departments (Reporting) Bill.last_img read more

first_imgOn Dec. 3, protesters rocked the normally mundane New York City Penn Station rush hour to commemorate the International Day for Persons with Disabilities and to protest the murder of Jeremy McDole, a 28-year-old African-American paraplegic who was shot and killed by police in Wilmington, Del., on Sept. 23 while in his wheelchair.Penn Station protest marks International Day for Persons with Disabilities, Dec. 3.This protest was called by the People’s Power Assemblies, an organization in support of the Black Lives Matter movement to combat the rising national epidemic of police murders, particularly of youth of color.PPA leader and activist Terrea Mitchell, a woman with disabilities, led protesters first outside the 34th Street elevator bank and then through all sections of Penn Station, including the Long Island Rail Road, Amtrak and New Jersey Transit, with chants of “Jeremy McDole! What’s his name? Jeremy McDole! Say his name!” “Disabled people need decent jobs, quality health care, not police terror!” and “Disabled Black lives matter!”Rene Imperato, a transgender Vietnam veteran with disabilities who also suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, speaking in her wheelchair, pointed out Penn Station’s disgraceful access deficiencies. These include inadequate signage directing people with disabilities to accessible elevators, which violates the Americans with Disabilities Act; unacceptably huge distances for wheelchair users to get to accessible elevators; and an extremely narrow ramp to New Jersey Transit. Imperato said she was once almost pushed into a pillar there by a speeding able-bodied commuter. Johnnie Stevens, of Parents to Improve School Transportation, urged everyone to show solidarity with the mostly Black and Brown women workers at Access-A-Ride, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s transit service in New York City for people with disabilities. The workers are demanding $15 an hour and a union as well as an end to a hostile work environment. Kim Ortiz, from NYC Shut It Down, showed profound solidarity with the community when she apologized for a previous protest where demonstrators were impatient and left people with disabilities behind. Trans disabled activist Josephine Perez discussed the special oppression of trans people with disabilities. Larry Holmes, of the PPA, told the crowd how workers with disabilities are discriminated against and denied the same minimum wage rights as other workers, sometimes earning as little as $2 a day. As many as half of the people killed by police had a disability. Sharon Eolis, of Workers World Party, talked about her experiences as an emergency room nurse trying to care for people with disabilities for whom medical care is woefully underfunded.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

On Monday, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati agreed to hear challenges to the Environmental Protection Agency’s rule by 18 states. The states say the EPA goes too far with the rule, and that WOTUS would be costly to landowners. The EPA defends the rule as a safeguard for drinking water for 117 million Americans. The rule went into effect last August but is temporarily on hold pending resolution of the jurisdictional challenge. The 6th Circuit issued the federal stay last year. A Washington Post opinion piece writes the announcement to hear challenges on the rule “would seem to indicate that things look good for those challenging the rule for exceeding the scope of the Clean Water Act.”Challenges to the rule may also benefit from being heard in lower courts as the Supreme Court seems likely deadlocked in a 4-4 political tie for the near future following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more
