Betting contributes €300m to European sports, EGBA claims

first_img Email Address Major European gambling opeators are contributing more than €300m to sports and employing more than 30,000 workers across the European Union, new research from the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) claims.The Brussels-based trade association said its operator members, which have a combined 12m active customers, employed 33,000 workers in 14 European Union countries. These companies also contributed €325m (£290m/$370m) in financial support to sports federations, leagues and clubs through sponsorship, advertising and media rights in 2017.The report revealed that its members generated gross profits of $19.6bn in 2017, with this figure expected to rise to $24.7bn by 2020. EGBA secretary general Maarten Haijer claimed the continent’s major gambling groups are raising compliance standards to match this rapid growth in profits.“Europe’s online gambling sector is a growing and popular form of digital entertainment – but with this growth comes responsibility to ensure that people are kept safe while playing on online gambling websites,” said Haijer, whose group’s members include GVC, Bet365 and Kindred Group.EGBA members completed 56 licensing audits to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations during the period, and invested €22.6m in KYC checks, he said. They also processed 354m online payments over the course of 2017, with customers offered 31 different payment methodsEGBA said its members had an average pay-out rate of 93.06% for the year, with the average customer spending €10 each time they placed a bet, excluding pay-outs. On average customers placed a bet every 17 days.Brands owned by EGBA such as Ladbrokes, Bet365 and Unibet are all major sponsors of sports leagues and teams across Europe. EGBA members are also major advertisers on TV and online throughout the continent, although GVC Holdings chief executive Kenny Alexander recently called for a pre-watershed ban on betting commercials in the UK.

Warren Buffett sold all his airline shares. Should you sell too?

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Anna Sokolidou has no position in any of the companies mentioned in this article. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Warren Buffett sold all his airline shares. Should you sell too? Warren Buffett, the legendary American investor, has decided to get rid of all of his airline stocks. This is presumably because he thinks it will take ages for the industry to return to profitability. The Oracle of Omaha chose to sell his entire stakes in United, American, Southwest and Delta Airlines. But I’m asking myself whether the future is really so grim for the airline industry as a whole? And how about top UK companies operating in this sector?Why did Buffett sell?In an interview Warren Buffett said” “I don’t know that three, four years from now people will fly as many passenger miles as they did last year… You’ve got too many planes.” This is essentially about the long-term demand for flights, sales revenue and profit. 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…There’s a good chance that the airline industry will recover after the end of the global economy’s lockdown. Restrictions will be removed and many people will, arguably, start traveling again both for work and leisure. But there’s a problem. In the UK, as like all over the world, the Covid-19 crisis is the sharpest recession on record. Many people have lost their jobs and some economists argue that the worst is not behind the world yet. Many companies will not hire their workers back. As a result, the unemployment rate will remain high and many people won’t have enough cash to spend on holidays. So demand for holiday flight may not recover for a long time. And how about travel for work? Well, many enterprises are cutting their costs and will probably continue to do so for a while. These costs include paying for their employees’ business trips. FTSE 100 airlinesIf all the arguments mentioned above turn out to be true, the demand for flights will stay limited for a long time. This will lead to the industry and its players shrinking in size. Companies could have to sell some of their assets, including planes. Large airlines like easyJet and IAG could be bailed out by the government, but will not operate on the same scale for some time.Both of these airlines have already received so-called soft loans from the government. easyJet received £600m and IAG secured £300m. This certainly doesn’t solve all their financial problems since airlines are still burning cash during the lockdown. Still, it shows the government’s willingness to help the sector. However, it remains unclear whether these airlines will get more state aid. Richard Branson’s Virgin Airlines, for example, was advised to seek other ways of raising cash before applying for £565m of government funding. In my view, there will also be some consolidation in the airline industry and it’s likely to be a case of ‘survival of the fittest’. I think smaller airlines around the world may go bankrupt, whereas larger companies may get leaner and fitter.Is the Oracle of Omaha right?I agree it might not be the right time to buy airlines. In fact, it carries substantial risk. But there’s still a chance that larger airlines will survive and could represent an opportunity for risk-tolerant investors. Yet for those new to investing or seeking a safer home for their cash, I’d follow Warren Buffett and keep away. And I’d sell existing shares as there are better stocks to invest in today, I feel.

E589 is a compact 10 storey 55 unit residential apartment building in the City of Melbourne. Within the developer, estate agent and market driven apartment design typology, this project addresses the challenge of achieving liveability, urban dialogue and architectural aesthetic. E589 achieves this within an otherwise utilitarian development parameters and modest individual apartment footprints.Save this picture!© James CoombeThe project is an architecture of patterning, orchestrated by the participation of the building’s occupants. The myriad positions of the balcony louvres that dominate the two street facades are a direct manifestation of the users’ interaction with their environment. The result is two highly dynamic envelopes that can form a closed cube, or can open completely, with a full spectrum of permutations in-between. The fully motorised sunscreen system, which responds automatically to the wind and rain, enhances occupants’ comfort and experience, yet can be overridden by individual apartments for desired level of privacy and solar access.Save this picture!© James CoombeTypical of its context, the narrow site offers an area of 500sqm, with a width to depth ratio of 1:3. In order to efficiently utilise the footprint available whilst also to achieving the optimum cost benefit for the developer, voids measuring 3.5m x 6m and 3 x 2.5 respectively have been extracted from the built mass. These voids are aligned with those at the adjoining apartment building in order to reduce vertical air drafts. In doing so, these two bright kaleidoscopic light wells, act as a pair of lungs for the building, allowing for improved cross ventilation opportunities for inward-facing apartments. Fixed louvers are utilised again, acting as visual barriers between the properties.Save this picture!ElevationThe metal facade is painted entirely in white. The façade elements explore solid versus void, and the austere, reflective quality of white further amplifies the light and shadow in this essay of composition. The prominent east and west elevations address the creases and twists of their built context – continuing the street eave with soffit detailing at pedestrian level, aligning balcony structure with adjoining gutters and the omission of facade screening which in turn gently gesture to the rooftops of direct neighbours to the north and south.Save this picture!© James CoombeRichard Meier said, “White is never just white, within it is the colours of the rainbow” – in E589 the white of the facades passes through an invisible prism on the ground floor, is then refracted and separated into individual colours of the rainbow over the nine floors above. The common areas of each level are painted in Red, Coral, Orange, Yellow, Green, Olive, Blue, Violet and Purple – moving through the corridors is like pacing inside a Kelly Ellsworth painting of single block colour.Save this picture!Typical Upper Floor PlanGoethe imagined darkness not just as absence of light but as its own active force – in tribute to Goethe and more local cultural events such as White Night Melbourne, coloured LEDS have been utilised as part of the balcony illumination, inviting the occupants to playfully colour the night sky.Save this picture!© James CoombeProject gallerySee allShow lessAIANY Housing Awards Winner SymposiumEventOlafur Eliasson To Bring LEGO Installation “The Collectivity Project” To The High LineArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Melbourne VIC, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

ACT NOW to save Mumia’s eyesight and to demand his release!

first_img Call: PA Gov. Tom Wolf — 717-787-2500; PA DOC Secretary John Wetzel — 717.728.2573; Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner — 215-686-8000  *Tell them to release Mumia Abu-Jamal NOW because he can receive better health care outside of prison and also because he is an innocent man!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Sign the following petition at’s vision has rapidly deteriorated. It has been confirmed that Mumia currently suffers from conditions that seriously threaten his eyesight. These include glaucoma, vitreous detachment and cataracts in both eyes. This threat seriously jeopardizes his life and wellbeing, as well as his journalistic profession.An outside eye doctor is recommending surgical procedures to remove the cataracts on both eyes, but SCI-Mahanoy Dr. Courtney Rodgers is delaying scheduling the needed examinations and surgeries with Mumia’s outside ophthalmologist. Rodgers works for Correct Care Solutions, a notorious for-profit prison and immigration detention medical company that, according to the Project on Government Oversight, has been sued at least 1,395 times with complaints alleging a range of charges, including wrongful death, malpractice and inadequate health care.Meanwhile Mumia faces increasing nerve damage to his eyes. He is unable to read or do other things requiring normal vision. This delay echoes the years of delays Mumia experienced getting treatment for hepatitis C. By the time the DOC was finally forced by Federal Court to treat Mumia with the Hep C cure, it was too late to prevent cirrhosis of the liver.African Americans are 1.5 times more likely to develop cataracts than the general population and five times more likely to develop related blindness.Not only is his overall health deteriorating as he is threatened by permanent blindness, his failure now to receive the immediate attention he requires is cruel and unusual punishment, especially as an innocent man who has been unjustly incarcerated for almost four decades.Furthermore, considering his multiple ailments and the threat of blindness, we demand that Pennsylvania officials allow a real and humane “compassionate release” now, not the “fake compassionate release” of transfers from prison to care facilities that Pennsylvania will only grant when a prisoner is within a year of dying. Mumia’s family, friends and supporters are ready now to provide the health care Mumia requires if he were home.Mumia is not alone in enduring these cruel and unusual assaults on the health of those ageing and ill behind prison walls. According to Bureau of Justice statistics, over 130,000 of U.S. prisoners are elderly, a 400% increase between 1993 and 2013. Mumia himself has noted the significant number of those confined at his own prison who suffer similar life-threatening illnesses that require immediate attention. Across the nation elderly prisoners experience a torturous journey toward the end of their lives without any “compassionate release.” Once again, as we fight for Mumia’s right to treatment and for his release, we fight for the freedom of all the imprisoned from mass incarceration’s cruel and unusual conditions.Mumia Abu-Jamal should receive cataract surgery immediately!Mumia should be released now not only because he can receive better health care outside of prison, but also because he is an innocent man!TAKE ACTION Sign the petition at Call: Dr Courtney P Rodgers — 570-773-7851 and SCI Mahanoy Superintendent Theresa A. Delbalso — (570) 773-2158    *Tell them to approve Mumia’s cataract surgery immediately.last_img read more
