first_imgCasino & games Tech company says deal will “drive significant revenue generation” Nektan has signed its biggest B2B deal to date with the tech company to provide its casino platform to BetVictor. Under the agreement, Nektan has integrated its B2B E-Lite casino platform into the BetVictor casino offering. E-Lite will distribute slots and table games content across three major BetVictor casino brands. Nektan confirmed to iGamingBusiness.com that this is the first time it will be working with an operator the size of BetVictor. The company billed the deal as a “landmark win” for its B2B business.Gary Shaw, who is currently serving as interim chief of Nektan, said the deal with BetVictor will allow the company to “build on the progress” it achieved during the quarter and deliver further growth. Shaw (pictured), who will soon step aside to make way for new CEO Lucy Buckley, said: “It serves as another example of our business model delivering growth throughout each market that we operate in and will help us to build on the progress announced recently in our Q1 trading update.” The agreement comes after Nektan’s impressive performance in the first quarter, during which it was able to post better-than-expected financial results. The firm announced record net gaming revenue of £6.4m (€7.3m/$8.5m) in the three months to June 30, 64.6% up on the previous year, while cash wagering also increased by 40.7% to £178.3m. 16th October 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Tech & innovation Jane Ryan, chief operating officer of B2B at Nektan, also picks up on this, saying that the BetVictor deal will open up more growth opportunities to Nektan. Ryan said: “This landmark partnership is set to deliver commercial opportunities to develop and drive significant revenue generation for Nektan throughout the coming months and beyond.” Nektan recently revealed that it is reviewing offers to invest in its US business, with a tier-one operator partnership set to go live “shortly” in the country as a “pipeline of upcoming opportunities” come to fruition in the post-PASPA era.

The company produces CEM II type cement which is used by the home building and construction sectors in Nigeria for making cement blocks as well as for plastering and concrete works.

I believe FTSE 100 megacap Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB) is a very attractive high-income stock. But I’m also considering diversifying my dividends from the energy sector. With this in mind, I’ll discuss not only Shell in this article, but also FTSE 250-listed Greencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW). I see this wind farm owner as a good option to sit alongside the oil giant.Immediate outlookAs stock markets crashed last week, the price of oil also slumped, and Shell fell more heavily than the overall FTSE 100. As I’m writing today, stock markets, the price of oil, and Shell’s shares have recovered a little. However, at around 1,700p, the Shell share price is 16% below its pre-crash February high, and 32% below its 52-week high.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…City analysts expect the company to maintain its dividend at $1.88 per share for 2020. At current exchange rates, this translates to 146p, and gives a glorious yield of 8.6%. The dividend would be covered 1.3 times by forecast earnings.The dividend cover isn’t particularly strong, and this has been the situation for a number of years. Indeed, some years, earnings haven’t covered the dividend at all. For this reason, Shell’s annual payout has been stuck at $1.88 per share since 2014.Looking to the futureMy colleague Roland Head explained in an excellent article last year how Shell is managing the business for a future of lower worldwide oil consumption. It’s limiting spending on new oil projects, and maximising cash generation from its existing operations.I can see the current strategy supporting the dividend for a good decade at least. However, in the long term, the company will need to tilt into other areas as oil consumption falls.Shell hasn’t cut its dividend since World War II. However, if major merger & acquisition opportunities in new areas came along that management felt could help secure the company’s long-term future in light of declining fossil-fuel consumption, and such investment required rebasing the dividend, I believe management would do so (and be right to).All in all, I see Shell as a good high-income buy. I think the dividend looks safe for the short and medium term – all else being equal – but with perhaps above-average risk of a future rebasing.The future’s here alreadyGreencoat UK Wind, which released its latest annual results last week, is well positioned for the cleaner energy future. It’s the leading listed renewable infrastructure fund, invested in UK wind farms. As of the year end, its portfolio consisted of 35 operating wind farm investments.Listed on the stock market in 2013, the company’s aim is: “To provide shareholders with an annual dividend that increases in line with RPI inflation while preserving the capital value of the investment portfolio in real terms.”For 2019, the company declared total dividends of 6.94p per share. For 2020, its targeting 7.1p, an increase for the seventh consecutive year in line with RPI. At a current share price of 142p (up 1.3% on the day), the prospective yield is bang on 5%.The company’s valued at £2.155bn, a premium of 17% to its net asset value. However, I think the premium is merited, given the low-risk nature of the business and reliability of its cash flows (and dividends). I rate it a ‘buy’ at this level, and a diversifying energy stock to hold alongside Shell. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”last_img read more

See all posts by Cliff D’Arcy Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. With November heading to a close, we look back with relief on a remarkable month for UK shares and global stocks. As I write, the FTSE 100 hovers around 6,381 points, up 805 points since Halloween. That’s a bumper monthly gain of more than a seventh (14.4%) — the highest since the Footsie started in 1984. It’s a similar story worldwide, with the US S&P 500 ahead almost 370 points (11.3%) and the European Stoxx 600 index leaping 51 points (14.9%) in November. But I believe there are plenty of cheap shares still lurking in the FTSE 100.It’s been a bruising year for UK sharesAlthough stocks have surged globally in November, it’s been a tough year for UK shareholders. Even after this month’s record rise, the FTSE 100 remains more than 1,160 points down in 2020. In other words, the UK’s main market index has dived by 15.4% since 2019. This makes 2020 one of the Footsie’s worst years. What’s more, many shares have been crushed by Covid-19, hurling them into the ‘cheap shares’ bin.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…To show you how some shares have suffered, I reviewed all 99 FTSE 100 members in the index for at least a year. Here’s what I found regarding their one-year performances:Of these 99 shares, only 39 have gained in value in the past 12 months.The average gain for these 39 winners is 20.7%.The best performer is up a tremendous 107.9% (and in the midst of a global pandemic, wow).Thus, 60 shares have lost value in 2020.The average loss for these 60 losers is 17.8%.The worst performer has crashed by a staggering 58.9% (because it’s an airline).The average loss across all 99 shares is a modest 2.7%.Note that although the average one-year loss across all 99 shares is 2.7%, the index itself is down 12.4% over 12 months. That’s because the FTSE 100 is a capitalisation-weighted index, where companies with the highest market values drive the index more than smaller members. And what an awful year it’s been for the FTSE 100’s heavyweights and their cheap shares.The FTSE 100’s 10 biggest losersFor the record, these are the 10 worst-performing shares in the FTSE 100 over the past 12 months. You’ll recognise some very big names in this list.HSBC Holdings -30.8%Melrose Industries -31.9%Informa -32.7%Standard Chartered -34.1%BT -37.2%Lloyds Banking Group -39.6%Royal Dutch Shell B -41.3%BP -46.3%Rolls-Royce Holdings -56.2%International Consolidated Airlines Group -58.9%In this list are three big banks, two oil & gas Goliaths, an aero-engine maker and the owner of British Airways. Of course, it’s no surprise that these economically sensitive stocks have all got much cheaper in 2020.Cheap shares: Fall hardest, bounce highest?When looking at buying into bombed-out shares, I think of rubber balls and wonder, “Will the hardest fallers bounce back hardest?” That’s because 33 years of experience has taught me that this year’s worst losers often turn out to be next year’s biggest winners. Hence, I see this table as a target-rich environment of potential champions in 2021.If I had to pick, say, three cheap shares from this list, then they would be Lloyds, Shell, and BP. I wouldn’t go near Rolls-Royce and ICAG, because I can’t see a return to profitable air travel for several years to come. Also, Shell, and BP pay chunky cash dividends — and I’m sure Lloyds’ payout will return in 2021. In summary, I’d buy these three losing stocks today for their lowly valuations and to enjoy decades of delicious dividends for a passive income!

Building plots are scarce in the Tyrol and almost impossible to find in the center of Innsbruck. Four friends wanted to live together as neighbors and combine their strengths to realize a living opportunity. After 4 years of time consuming searching, they found a plot of land.Save this picture!© David SchreyerNarrow, L-shaped and with limited access, situated in the middle of an urban block, the plot varies in depth between 10 and 12 meters. According to Tyrolean building regulations, a development plan with open construction was not actually  achievable! The plot is surrounded by government archive buildings, a supermarket, an old factory and romantic villas with gardens. The obstacle course associated with the legal requirements was at the same time a challenge and as well an indirect guide to  the building solution.Save this picture!© David SchreyerSave this picture!Section AThe result is a monolithic building, with an asymmetrical roof and dark oiled wood that looks robust, but does not force itself into the foreground. The 150 m2 duplex fits on the small 400 m2  “gap” surrounded by a well developed neighborhood. The remaining area of ​​the plot is garden space between the well established gardens of neighboring villas. The building is made by folding the façade so that two small houses are defined rather than a single larger structure.Save this picture!© David SchreyerInside, the functions of the rooms move from the ground floor upwards flowing with the hierarchy of daily living. Every square meter is used and fits within the lifestyle of the residents. Carefully planned openings offer views over the plot and neighbour’s green areas. The placement of an atrium allows both apartments to benefit from light at all times of the day.  The atrium allows for a connected path for communication and is bound by an old-style brick wall as a witness to the past. Cuttouts in the roof structure create outdoor spaces with a view of the imposing mountains around Innsbruck.Save this picture!Floor planThe same façade cladding stretches across the roof and appear to the taller town houses as 13 triangles in a folded roof landscape. The construction of wood and concrete was left with visible surfaces, it applies the Principle: “It is what it is”.Save this picture!© David SchreyerThe working title:The title “courage to the gap” derives from the possibility that the property was not buildable. The local building codes with regard to a development of the gap for residential purposes was in principle not possible (only allowing for a storage building or a Supermarket!). Intensive and detailed study of the spatial planning rules and interpretation of legal requirements led to a proof of concept applying the principle of equality and justifying the options.  Four separate surveys were required before permission was given for residential use of the property. For a non-commercial developer but rather four private people, buying the plot without being sure that the houses could be built was a very brave decision.Save this picture!© David SchreyerProject gallerySee allShow lessEl Gordo y el Flaco Restaurant / VIMARVISelected ProjectsStudio Gang and SCAPE Reveal Plans for Tom Lee Park on the Memphis WaterfrontArchitecture News Share Photographs:  David Schreyer Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Rieder Group, Binderholz, Eggersmann, Complex Oil, Fankhauser Estriche, GORI Architects: STUDIO LOIS Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© David Schreyer+ 15Curated by Paula Pintos Sharelast_img read more

The purpose of the tents was to provide and encourage resources for pet owners, such as grooming, pet care, vaccinations and much more.The Fort Worth Partnership for Pets said they set up a booth to provide information and to raise funds for the support of animals around Fort Worth.Through partnerships with the Humane Society of North Texas, Saving Hope Foundation, Fort Worth Animal Care and Control, Spay/Neuter Network and PetSmart Charities, the organizations have collaborated to save the lives of animals through adoption, spay/neuter and education.“All of the organizations that are involved in Fort Worth Partnership for Pets are very excited about today,” said Kelsey Patterson, executive board member of Saving Hope and a representative of Fort Worth Partnership for Pets.Patterson said the park opening was the perfect opportunity for the organizations to announce their partnership.“I think it’s a good day for everyone in the community to get their dogs out and socialize,” Patterson said. “But more importantly, its about coming together as a community and making Fort Worth a better city for our four-legged friends.”To honor this celebration, Mayor Betsy Price and Councilman Zim Zimmerman spoke to the community about the numerous foundations that helped the project funding.“This has been a great public and private partnership,” said Price. “Our foundations have raised more than a million dollars to help the city with this park.”The city leaders also unveiled the park’s newest addition of artwork. The bronze statue, named Who Rescued Who?, was crafted by Lorri Acott and dedicated to Tony and Bill Baker.Price said she believes the statue represents the love between pet and owner, much like the purpose of this celebration.“We all love our pets and they mean so much to our life,” said Price. “It’s been great to see so many people come out to support today.” Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature World Champion runner forced to withdraw from Cowtown’s Ultra Marathon Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Bailey Kirbyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/bailey-kirby/ Bailey Kirby Friday on the Green provides music and fun for all ages Bailey Kirbyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/bailey-kirby/ ReddIt Near Southside strives to be economic powerhouse of Fort Worth Bailey Kirbyhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/bailey-kirby/ Twitter Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

Of course there are hundreds, even thousands, of variations, some with beans, lettuce, salsa, guacamole, cheese, and many more.Why the name?Well, burrito in Spanish means “little donkey,” which is the diminutive form of “burro.” Though the exact reason for the name is not known, it is believed by some that the rolled up taco de harina looks similar to a donkey’s ear. While there are some who say that the burrito was named for the bedrolls and packs that donkeys usually carry.We may not know which theory is correct, but the fact remains that the name stuck, and what once was known as taco de harina, is now the burrito we know and love.The origin of the burrito is not really known, but historians believe it may have originated with the vaqueros, or Mexican cowboys, in northern Mexico in the 19th century. However, there are also claims that is may have originated among the farmworkers of California’s Central Valley, or northern Sonoran miners in the 19th century.There is a myth though that the burrito started when a man named Juan Mendez, a taco vendor in Ciudad Juarez, used a donkey to transport his food during the Mexican Revolution. To help keep the food warm, Mendez used homemade flour tortillas to wrap the taco fillings. The name “burrito,” as the story goes, was used to describe the “food of the little donkey.” As the new type of food grew in popularity, the name stuck.Through the years, several varieties of burrito sprung forth and these are the Mexican burrito, which consisted of a thin tortilla with one or two ingredients, mainly some sort of meat, with potatoes, rice, beans, asadero cheese, chile rajas or chili relleno.There is the San Francisco burrito, or Mission burrito, which was similar to the Mexican burrito albeit adding more ingredients to the mix such as sour cream, guacamole, and rice. It is argued that this type of burrito was the first “super” burrito.Then there’s the San Diego-style burrito which is generally described as no-frills, and smaller than other burritos.And finally, the Los Angeles-style burrito, which usually takes multiple forms but is often dominated by some combination of refried beans, meat, cheese, rice and other add-ons.In Pasadena, though there are several places that serve burritos, one of, if not the, best burritos in the area can be found at Burrito Express (a simple Yelp search will show that Burrito Express serves the best burritos in Pasadena, by the way).At Burrito Express, you’ll also find several types of burritos available. From the special JVC Burrito, Ito Burrito, or the Ross Perot Burrito, to the standards Beef bean and cheese or Chorizo and Egg Burrito, or the ultra classic Bean and Cheese Burrito. You can also order the Vic’s Special, which comes smothered in Spicy or Mild sauce and Cheese and comes with a salad and chips.Burritos have been around for more than a century, and with their popularity, will stay for centuries more. So head down to Burrito Express and take a bite out of history!Burrito Express is located at 1597 East Washington Blvd.To find out more about Burrito Express, visit www.http://burritoexpresspasadena.com or call (626) 798-0844 for more details.

There is an unlikely family forming at Restoration Community Church, a community of people with diverse stories and backgrounds that are being drawn together for a greater purpose. God is writing a story here in Pasadena, California that only he could write, bringing together a church that is passionate about seeing anyone far from God restored to a new life in Christ.”“We want to create a sense of closeness and fellowship with Jesus Christ and among the members of this new church, and the word ‘restoration’ connotes that kind of relationship,” says Nick Gonzales. “But what’s just as important, if not more important, is the sense of community we want to develop with people in the neighborhoods that surround us. Located in the vibrant city of Pasadena, California we want people to view us and use us as a resource that’s vital to their spiritual growth.”“Our dream is to be a church where the barriers to discovering God and His infinite goodness are removed, and people can make real and refreshing changes in their lives,” says Pastor Nick Gonzales.Those interested in learning more about Restoration Community Church, and their services, are invited to visit the church’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/restorationchristiancommunity.

first_imgDonal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener THE producers of a new ten-part TV series being filmed at Troy Studios in Castletroy are being urged to avail of new regional tax breaks as well as employing local people.Former Mayor of Limerick, Cllr James Collins (FF)  is now calling on the producers to help continue the growth of the studio and the local economy.The sci-fi drama ‘Nightflyers’, which was axed by the SyFy channel after one season, employed 320 people for nine months and contributed more than €50m to the Limerick economy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “One of the issues with ‘Nightflyers’ was the higher cost for producers of bringing in people from Dublin to work on the production. However, in mid-July the EU approved a five per cent Regional Uplift tax break, which is designed to encourage filmmaking outside the Dublin and Wicklow area,” Cllr Collins said this week.“I hope the producers of this latest ten-part series at Troy Studios use this new five per cent tax break to employ more local artists and tradespeople in Limerick and draw on the positive experience of the ‘Nightflyers’ production where hundreds of local freelancers and tradespeople gained part-time employment or steady contract work for nine months of the year,” he added.
