IBIA secures data deal with H2 Gambling Capital

first_imgCasino & games The recently rebranded International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has entered into a wide-reaching data partnership with H2 Gambling Capital.Gaming market data and intelligence provider H2 will grant IBIA access to its market database of over 2m data points across 150 jurisdictions around the world.The IBIA, previously known as ESSA (Sports Betting Integrity), will be able to use H2’s data to develop and promote effective integrity frameworks and advise policymakers on practical betting market frameworks. The association has an existing relationship with H2, having worked together when delivering proposals to the Independent Review Panel’s (IRP) review of tennis integrity last year.The IRP’s proposed prohibition on International Tennis Federation (ITF) data being collected for tournaments with $15,000 and and $25,000 prize pools was strongly opposed by the IBIA. The association argued that a data blackout would create opportunities for illegal betting operators to exploit such competitions.It was able to highlight the negative effects of such a move using H2’s data, which ultimately saw the IRP amend the scope of this provision in its final report, to only ban data collection on $15,000 tournaments.“We worked with H2 when delivering our position and proposals to the independent review of tennis integrity last year,” IBIA secretary general Khalid Ali said. “H2’s data and economic analysis was crucial and underpinned our key arguments during those discussions.“Both parties are keen to continue working together and to utilise H2’s best in class global gambling data to foster informed regulatory policies.”David Henwood, director at H2, added: “We increasingly want to help our clients and partners take advantage of new opportunities, safeguard their interests and meet their commercial objectives.“Ensuring a safe betting environment is central to the current regulatory debate and the International Betting Integrity Association is at the forefront of that global discussion,” he explained. “We aim to support the association’s objectives in this area with our unrivalled intelligence, analysis and market data.”Confirmation of the partnership comes after IBIA last week named AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) the market-leading operator in the early months of Sweden’s regulated igaming market, as its first new member since its rebrand earlier this month.Image: Max Pixel IBIA secures data deal with H2 Gambling Capital Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Email Address 18th June 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Strategy The recently rebranded International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has entered into a wide-reaching data partnership with H2 Gambling Capital.last_img read more

Here’s why I’d buy into this FTSE 100 investment opportunity right now

first_img Unquoted companies inhabit an exciting area, and can deliver outsized returns. But many investors don’t have the opportunity to invest in them and might see them as too risky an area to invest in anyway, as young, growing companies have a higher failure rate.But you could access the sector by investing in FTSE 100 listed specialist 3i Group (LSE: III), which buys, improves and sells smaller companies, and also makes infrastructure investments, primarily in northern Europe and North America. It has a long-standing track record of picking good prospects and delivering strong gains for shareholders. And momentum is on its side.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…3i Group’s Private Equity business currently holds a portfolio of 32 unquoted assets, typically mid-market businesses that want to grow internationally. The aim is to help entrepreneurs and management teams add value to their business, helping them grow over a three-to-five-year period, before exiting its positions at a profit.Power of IIIThe £11.3bn group, which has a track record going back to 1945, has posted steady share price growth over recent years, and the 3i Group share price has grown 145% in just five years, massively outperforming the rest of the FTSE 100. That’s impressive, because the nature of its business means that results can swing from one year to the next, depending on factors such as the timing of disposals.Last month’s third-quarter update showed Private Equity cash proceeds of £189m, mainly from the partial divestment of Basic-Fit and the distributions from Audley Travel and Hans Anders. Similarly, its Infrastructure team celebrated “the highly accretive sale of Wireless Infrastructure Group”.3i Group continued to grow with fresh acquisitions and bolt-on activity during the period. Net asset value per share grew only modestly by 4p to 877p during the most recent quarter, but that is more impressive than it looks, because it took a £314m hit as sterling strengthened during the quarter. It posted a total return of 10.1% for the nine months to 31 December 2019.Times are tighterIts recent report alerted investors to “a tightening macro environment”, but said performance remained “resilient”. Some acquisitions will always do better than others, but as long as 3i continues to back more winners than losers, the long-term trajectory should be upwards.It typically has a healthy net cash balance as well, which stood at £495m in the 12 months to March last year, giving it a nice cushion.Although management is primarily looking to generate capital growth, many also admire this stock for its growing dividend, with a current yield of 3.5%, well covered 3.3 times by earnings. The big drawback is that the 3i share price trades at a massive premium of 26.9% to net asset value, although that reflects investor confidence in the operation.City analysts predict that earnings will grow 11% next year, and 16% the year after, which are healthy projections in uncertain times. I reckon that 3i looks far more solid than many companies on the FTSE 100 right now, yet also more exciting.

The 2020 stock market crash has caused many income stocks to offer higher yields. This could not only improve their appeal among dividend investors, it may also make them attractive to long-term growth investors.  That’s because reinvested dividends make up a large portion of the stock market’s past total returns.As such, now could be the right time to build an income portfolio. It could outperform other assets and lead to an improvement in your financial situation.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…High dividend yields among income stocksFollowing the stock market crash, many income stocks now offer high dividend yields. Their low prices and maintained shareholder payouts mean that, in some cases, they offer income returns significantly higher than their historic averages.As a result, they could offer an impressive income return in an era where low interest rates look set to remain in place for a prolonged period. This could cause increasing demand among investors for those dividend shares that offer a reliable above-inflation return. This may prompt higher prices for dividend shares that produces impressive capital returns alongside their income prospects.Even though some income stocks have cut their dividends since the start of the year, it’s still possible to build a diverse portfolio of dividend stocks. Over time, it could produce a surprisingly high level of total returns.A lack of income opportunities elsewhereAnother reason to purchase income stocks today is the lack of opportunities available elsewhere. An investor who’s seeking to make a generous income return from their capital now has limited choice as a result of low interest rates. Cash and investment-grade bonds, for example, offer returns that are lower than inflation, in some cases. This could lead to a loss of spending power over the long run that negatively impacts on your financial outlook.Meanwhile, other assets such as property may lack the high yields that are available in the stock market due to house price growth over the past decade. Therefore, buying dividend stocks could be one of the few ways to generate an inflation-beating income that grows over the coming years.Total return potentialIncome stocks aren’t only appealing to those investors who are seeking to live off payouts from their holdings. A large proportion of the stock market’s past total returns have been derived from the reinvestment of dividends. Therefore, investors who are looking to generate capital growth from their portfolio over the long run could buy a range of income shares in order to generate rising capital values over the coming years.At a time when some growth stocks are overvalued, this could be a sound means of building a nest egg. It could lead to you enjoying a generous passive income in older age. Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.last_img read more

Young Reds lock suspended after reacting with frustrated boot in the face

first_imgMonday May 6, 2019 Young Reds lock suspended after reacting with frustrated boot in the face Reds second row Harry Hockings has been suspended after he was shown a straight red card against the Sunwolves in Brisbane on Saturday. It was the second red card of the night, as referee Angus Gardner and the TMO had a busy match.ADVERTISEMENTFollowing a red card for two yellows to Sunwolves winger Semisa Masirewa, Hockings got himself in trouble just five minutes from time.After having his foot held at the base of a ruck, the young lock pulled himself free then gave Sunwolves number eight Rahboni Warren-Vosayaco a tap in the face with the bottom of his boot.Upon review, 20-year-old Hockings was shown a red card while number eight Warren-Vosayaco was given yellow for holding him.“You’re going to the bin for holiding his leg, that’s why he put his boot in your face,” explained Gardner as he showed the yellow.A SANZAAR Judicial Committee Hearing found Harry Hockings of the Reds guilty of contravening Law 9.12: A player must not physically abuse anyone. Physical abuse includes, stamping or trampling.ADVERTISEMENTHockings has therefore been suspended from all forms of the game for 3 weeks.In his finding, the Judicial Committee Chairperson Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following:“The Judicial Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks due to the World Rugby instructions that dictate any incident of foul play involving contact with the head must start at a mid-range level.“The actions of the Player were deemed reckless although the contact made was found not to have been made with significant force. Taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s clean judicial record, his youth and good reputation, his acceptance of responsibility and his expressed remorse, the Judicial Committee reduced the suspension to 3 weeks.”ADVERTISEMENTSunwolves winger Nasirewa, meanwhile, has been suspended for 1 week after his two yellow cards.Catch up on the full match highlights below credit: superrugby Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Italy and EU give green light to U.S. missiles in Europe

first_imgBy Manlio DinucciThe author is an anti-militarist analyst based in Pisa, Italy. This article was first published in the Italian periodical Il Manifesto on Jan. 7. Workers World Managing Editor John Catalinotto translated it.At the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metal sculpture entitled “Good Defeats Evil.” The statue depicts St. George slaying a dragon with his spear. The USSR donated the statue in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty — the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty signed with the U.S. in 1987. The INF Treaty eliminated short-range and intermediate (between 300 and 3,300 miles) ground-based nuclear missiles. The body of the UN dragon is in fact symbolically made with pieces of U.S. Pershing-2 ballistic missiles, first deployed in West Germany, and with Soviet SS-20 missiles, first deployed in the USSR. Now, however, the nuclear dragon, which the sculpture depicts as dying, is coming back to life, thanks also to Italy and to the other countries in the European Union. At the General Assembly of the U.N., these states voted against the resolution presented by Russia on the “Preservation and observance of the INF Treaty.” They rejected the Russian resolution with 46 votes against 43 and 78 abstentions. The European Union — with 21 of its 27 members part of NATO, as is Britain, now exiting the EU — has thus fully aligned itself with the position of NATO. In turn, NATO has fully aligned itself with the U.S. position. First the Barack Obama administration, then the Donald Trump administration, without any evidence, accused Russia of having experimented with a missile of the forbidden category and announced the intention to withdraw from the INF. At the same time, the U.S. launched a new program to install nuclear missiles in Europe aimed at Russia. These missiles would also be deployed in the Asia-Pacific region against China. The Russian representative at the U.N. warned that “to all intents and purposes, this constitutes the beginning of an arms race.” In other words, he warned that if Washington were to re-install nuclear missiles aimed at Russia in Europe (like the Cruise missiles deployed in Comiso, Italy, in the 1980s), Russia would re-install similar missiles on its territory aimed at targets in Europe. Such Russian missiles are incapable of reaching the United States.Ignoring all the above, the EU representative at the U.N. accused Russia of undermining the INF Treaty and announced the vote against the Russian resolution by all the countries of the Union because “the resolution presented by Russia deviates from the issue being discussed.” In essence, therefore, the European Union has given a green light to the possible installation of new U.S. nuclear missiles in Europe, including in Italy. Italian government violates people’s sovereign rightsOn an issue of such importance, the Italian government headed by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, like previous Italian governments, renounced its right to exercise national sovereignty. Instead it has followed the EU, which in turn has followed NATO under U.S. command. From the whole political spectrum in the Italian Parliament, no voice was raised to demand that the Parliament decide how to vote at the U.N. Nor has any voice been raised in Parliament to demand that Italy observe the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which requires that the U.S. remove the B61 nuclear bombs from Italian territory and refrain from installing the new and even more dangerous B61-12 bombs there starting in the first half of 2020. The fundamental constitutional principle that “sovereignty belongs to the people” is thus violated again. And since the political-media apparatus deliberately keeps Italians in the dark on these issues of vital importance, this violates the people’s right to information, in the sense not only of the freedom to inform but also of the right to be informed. Neither now nor later will there be time to decide: An intermediate-range ballistic missile takes only 6 to 11 minutes to reach and destroy the target with its nuclear warhead.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Twitter printStudents hungry for connections or even just hungry for food are welcomed by the Student Government Association (SGA) to join them for a Common Table dinner Wednesday night.The event is open to all in the Horned Frog community, including faculty, staff and alumni, to join together for dinner and conversation right in the heart of the Campus Commons.“We really hope that students enjoy this event and meet a new friend, as well as share in some memories,” said incoming Vice President of External Affairs Will Jezek.Jezek also said he hopes this event will appeal to seniors as it takes place not too far away from commencement.This Common Table event highlights the fact that TCU is one frog family, no matter where students, faculty and staff might come from.“I think that we represent something much bigger than ourselves by being a part of the Horned Frog community,” said Class of 2021 representative Jack Leonhard. “It is all about unity. It’s all about getting people around a table, sharing a meal, meeting new people and it’s about uniting TCU.”Last year this dinner ran under the name of the Frogs Family Dinner. Jezek said he hopes the SGA-sponsored event, brings people together in both informative and fun ways.“One of my goals is to better connect students, especially those with the Fort Worth community,” Jezek said. “I believe I am achieving this by inviting students to meet local alumni, to meet faculty and staff as well as to learn exactly what SGA is doing on campus. I love the fact that we’re celebrating over something that is so traditional like dinner.”The dinner will feature chicken, pasta and chocolate cake and it will serve 400 people at one long table in the Commons.

Clock Ticking, City Urges Census Participation With Just 30 Days Remaining for the Count

Required fields are marked * Community News On Monday, the California Census Campaign held a meeting to provide an update on their progress with 30 days left in the count.Nationally, the campaign 64.7 percent response, that still isn’t enough for the Census Bureau and their partners.And in the next 30 days, the battle to reach households that are the hardest to account for will increase.The campaign hopes to reach 1.1 million households via followup texts by the end of the month and has planned a week of action from Sep. 7 through Sep. 12.During that time advocates will increase their methods as a last-minute attempt to reach their goal.Convincing minorities to be counted has been the mission for cities across the state including Pasadena.California has a 68.7 self-response rate. The state has a 67.2 rate.“The only positive news is that we’re doing better than the state average and better than the national average,” said Mayor Terry Tornek. “But it’s not good enough. We have not conveyed the sense of urgency to the people who should care the most about the potential of losing out on very substantial federal funding and on congressional representation.”That funding includes money for education, transportation programs and hundreds of millions of dollars that come to the city based on the formulas generated by the census count.City officials pushed hard to avoid an undercount.Last year, Trump officials pushed to include questions about immigration status, many feared that some local residents would not take part in the census to avoid interactions with immigration officials.In February, the City Council voted unanimously to monitor the upcoming US Census in Pasadena for potential breaches of confidentiality – hoping to reassure immigrants and other traditionally “hard to count” community members that participating in the once-a-decade count is “safe.”The census consists of nine basic demographic questions: who lives in the household; how they are related; their age, sex, and race; whether they own or rent their house; and their phone number.Population counts from the 2020 census will be used to determine how many congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets for the next decade. The data will also be used to help distribute nearly $900 billion in federal funding for such things as schools, roads and other public services.“It’s a tangible issue that affects how we’re able to run our city and our state,” Tornek said. “We haven’t connected the dots adequately because if people really understood that, they would take the 15 minutes or the 20 minutes, depending on how big their family is to answer the 10 questions.”In 2010 Census data was used to distribute more than $400 million to support local schools, transportation, housing, and healthcare programs.Population counts from the 2020 census will be used to determine how many congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets for the next decade.The census can be completed at my2020census.gov and complete the form online.

I hope we see more people glad to crack the nut that is the Market’s Field,” he said.Emphasising the importance of the FAI playing a central role in the playing of soccer in Limerick city, Mr Dowling said he will be organising a meeting with the FAI and other key players in the development of the Market’s Field, including City of Limerick VEC.
