It is understood the as-yet-unnamed paper will draw on resources from his existing media outlets but also have its own staff of several dozen.The News Corp boss is desperate to secure new revenue streams from the internet for his newspaper empire, which includes the New York Post in the US and the Sun and Times in the UK.The move is the clearest sign yet that Murdoch is prepared to force through changes to the way people view news content.Earlier this year he erected paywalls around parts of his UK newspaper stable, charging readers to access information from the Times and Sunday Times. Early reports suggest their readership has been slashed but it remains to be seen whether the sites will become a worthwhile source of revenue.Murdoch told the LA Times the venture will appeal to readers who consume their news on the go. He said it will focus on short, easily digestible stories ideal for commuters. The tycoon added: “We’ll have young people reading newspapers. It’s a real game changer in the presentation of news.”Benedict Evans of Enders Analysis told City A.M. there could be a gap in the market for such a venture, but influential technology blog TechCrunch said the move is akin to the doomed charge of the Light Brigade.

It feels as though this is a positioning move rather than a ‘we’re going to upgrade numbers’ move,” Panmure Gordon analyst Andy Brown said. The firm will also make joint bids with British Gas for future social housing maintenance contracts. Mears did not provide any financial figures for the deal, but said it would seek funding from the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target, which the government estimates would stimulate about £3.2bn of investment by energy suppliers.The deal will also target funding from the £350m Community Energy Savings Programme (CESP).Mears chairman Bob Holt said on Monday that talks about adopting some of Connaught’s social housing contracts were ongoing and Mears was “very much on the look out” for acquisitions.Shares in Mears climbed 3.4 per cent to 290p in yesterday’s trading. center_img Share Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:09 pm Mears starts energy scheme Tags: NULL KCS-content last_img read more

Swedish regulated gambling revenue reaches SEK24.8bn in 2019

first_img Swedish regulated gambling revenue reaches SEK24.8bn in 2019 Bingo Email Address The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has revealed that licensed operators in the country generated revenue of SEK24.8bn (£2.03bn/€2.34bn/$2.62bn) in 2019. Topics: Casino & games Finance Lottery Sports betting Bingo Slots Tags: Online Gambling Slot Machines The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has revealed that licensed operators in the country generated revenue of SEK24.8bn (£2.03bn/€2.34bn/$2.62bn) in 2019.Online casino games and gambling on ships was the main source of income for licensees during the 12 months to 31 December 2019, with revenue totalling SEK14.0bn for the year, according to figures jointly published by the regulator and the Swedish Tax Agency.Revenue from state lottery and gambling machines amounted to SEK5.91bn in 2019, while national lottery games generated a total of SEK3.4m in revenue. Elsewhere, revenue from Casino Cosmopol, the only licenced land-based casino operator in Sweden, came in at SEK975m, while bingo hall revenue amounted to SEK234m and restaurant casinos SEK229m.In terms of quarterly performance, the final quarter of 2019 was the busiest for operators, with overall regulated revenue amounting to SEK6.65bn in the three-month period.Spelinspektionen also noted the impact of unlicensed operators in the country. It said that while there was no official information as to how much Swedish players spend on unregulated websites, industry analysts H2 Gambling Capital estimated offshore revenue to be between SEK1.8bn and SEK2.2bn for the year.H2 Gambling Capital also said that unregulated revenue in the final quarter of the year was likely to have been between SEK580m and SEK690m.At present, some 96 operators hold a licence to offer gambling in Sweden, not including licences for non-profit purposes. Of these operators, 70 are licensed for online betting and casino games.By the end of 2019, Spelinspektionen said that more than 8,000 people in the country had opted into, its self-exclusion scheme that launched when new regulations came into effect in January 2019. The regulator said this figure had increased to over 49,000 people by the start of March 2020.The opening of the Swedish regulated market in January of last year makes year-on-year comparisons difficult. Regulated market revenue in 2018 amounted to SEK16.7bn, but when including operators that were at the time not licensed, total market revenue was SEK23.4bn.However, since the launch of the regulated market in Sweden, some operators that had been offering gambling without a licence, and were therefore last year classed as unregulated, have since secured a permit to operate in the country and in 2019 contributed to regulated revenue – hence a 48.5% year-on-year rise in regulated revenue.

Danny Care brilliant inside flick sets up Matt Hopper try vs Clermont

first_imgSunday Jan 12, 2014 Danny Care brilliant inside flick sets up Matt Hopper try vs Clermont Harlequins lost 16-13 to Clermont in the Heineken Cup on Saturday but one of the moments of the match came from Quins scrumhalf Danny Care, who produced a piece of magic for Matt Hopper’s try. Care unfortunately limped off later with an ankle injury. Care set up Hopper’s try with a superb piece of skill after a Chris Robshaw kick ahead, but later in the game he injured his ankle and now faces a race for fitness ahead of the Six Nations. Coach Conor O’Shea praised his attacking instinct that gave Quins a 13-3 lead.“We didn’t start particularly well but then a piece of absolute genius from Danny changed the energy our way and we were pretty much on top for the rest of the first half,” said O’Shea.“Danny’s piece of skill was quite exceptional. You can’t practice that. He gave us a bit of momentum and he’s a game changer.”Clermont came back with a try to Napolioni Nalaga, and then fellow Fijian Sitiveni Sivivatu scored to level things at 13-13 before Brock James slotted an easy penalty late in the game.As a result Clermont have reached the last eight, while Harlequins are now effectively out the running. This excellent try, that included a chip ahead by a forward, will live long in the memory.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , Harlequins , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Anti-racist struggle continues in 2015

first_imgAn upsurge in mass demonstrations and rebellions across the United States portends much for developments in 2015. The federal government and ruling class have not seriously addressed the underlying factors associated with the rise in police killings and other racist incidents.The profound disconnect between the ruling Democratic and Republican parties and the African-American masses was starkly revealed last year when voter turnouts were low, while tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the streets against police terrorism and the racist criminal justice system.These militant protests and urban rebellions were not planned by the mainstream Civil Rights organizations, but grew out of the objective conditions facing tens of millions of oppressed people.Entering 2015, we see that right-wing ideology dominates the political superstructure of the U.S. Completely ignored are the growing demands by millions for decent wages, adequate housing, quality education, an end to police abuses and the cessation of military hostilities abroad.The Democratic Party, which appeals to the workers and oppressed during election years seeking their votes, is not advancing any concrete programs to alleviate the suffering and impoverishment of growing numbers of people. Unemployment, underemployment and poverty rates remain extremely high. The decline in the labor participation rate conceals the real magnitude of the problem.A Pew Research Center study entitled “Black unemployment rate is consistently twice that of whites” was issued on Aug. 21, 2013, to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. It reported, “In 1954, the earliest year for which the Bureau of Labor Statistics has consistent unemployment data by race, the white rate averaged 5% and the black rate averaged 9.9%. Last month, the jobless rate among whites was 6.6%; among blacks, 12.6%. Over that time, the unemployment rate for blacks has averaged about 2.2 times that for whites.”Such statistics illustrate that despite the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, fundamental issues of jobs and income remain unresolved. The refusal of the federal government and the corporate elite to enact any national jobs program means that these unemployment figures will continue at the same rate or become even more disparate between African Americans and whites.The U.S. poverty rate sharply reflects these disparities. Overall, it stood at 15 percent in 2013. When race is considered, whites had a poverty rate of 10 percent, while the rate was 27 percent for African Americans — 17 percent higher. The Latino/a poverty rate was 24 percent, just three points below African Americans. (These figures are posted under “Poverty Rate by Race/Ethnicity” at the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation blog, using data issued in March 2014 by the U.S. Census Bureau.)Consequently, it is not surprising that African Americans are expressing mass opposition to the status quo. The struggles of this oppressed nation in North America have paved the way for all significant contemporary democratic and working-class movements.50 years after SelmaA “white backlash” against the demonstrations demanding justice for Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and other victims of racist police violence is already in evidence. Police organizations, backed up by politicians, are decrying any public sympathy expressed toward African-American and other oppressed people who are being gunned down in the streets by the cops.These developments are taking place 50 years after the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other members of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference went to Selma, Ala., to escalate an existing struggle for voting rights. Since 1965, many African Americans have been elected to public office and have entered job categories from which they had been previously excluded.However, the fundamental contradictions between the majority of African Americans and the capitalist ruling class remain. Most African Americans have been negatively impacted by the economic system’s restructuring over the last several decades.The housing crisis and the deterioration of the public sector, including in municipal affairs and education, have disproportionately robbed jobs, incomes, homes and essential services from tens of millions of the oppressed living in cities and suburbs.Ferguson, Mo., where the rebellions and mass demonstrations erupted in response to the police killing of Michael Brown on Aug. 9, represents a microcosm of African-American life in the U.S.As voting rights are besieged in many states, the Supreme Court in 2013 struck down the enforcement provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights bill. The U.S. Congress has yet to take any meaningful action to restore access to the basic right to vote, which is ostensibly a byproduct of any bourgeois democracy.Malcolm X said on Jan. 7, 1965, in a speech before the Militant Labor Forum in New York, that 1965 would be one of the bloodiest years on the racial front in U.S. history. His life was taken on Feb. 21. Then on March 7, “Bloody Sunday,” state and local police attacked hundreds of Civil Rights marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, after they left Selma on their way to Montgomery, the Alabama state capital. The Watts Rebellion began on Aug. 11. Also, the Lowndes County Freedom Organization, the original Black Panther Party, was founded in Alabama, in the aftermath of the Selma-to-Montgomery march.Independent political action by the African-American masses must lead to new organizational forms and alliances. As a system, capitalism has run its course. Therefore, a major political movement aiming for national liberation and socialist reconstruction is required.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It’s still a long way from Mecca to Limerick

first_imgFacebook Print Advertisement WhatsApp Email Previous article‘Invisible’ refugee children at riskNext articleBill back for flying visit admincenter_img NewsLocal NewsIt’s still a long way from Mecca to LimerickBy admin – November 22, 2012 519 Linkedin AS AN island nation, we have always been wary of outsiders. The common concept of fearing what we do not understand runs deep in our Irish ways.We continue to conceive different ways to ours as ‘wrong’ or ‘too different’ to be accepted. Throughout our history we have been known to regard diversity – whether cultural, religious or ethnic – with suspicion and, sometimes, even outright contempt.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The long shadow of religious intolerance and acts of terrorism associated with people of middle-eastern origin is behind much of the suspicion aimed at Muslims. A fair comparison would be to accuse your local parish priest of being an IRA terrorist. You would know that somehow it’s not quite right but sometimes it’s hard to think beyond the Catholic/Nationalist link that has characterised much of the debate about the troubles in Northern Ireland.Unfortunately, much of the same thought process is behind the condemnation of Muslims simply for practicing their faith.Local Immam  Khaled Abdhulghafur moved to Limerick from Scotland and he believes that Ireland is “30 years behind other countries regarding attitude towards Muslims”.“When I was living in Glasgow, no one had to give me a second look, I was accepted for who I was,” he said.The Imam explained how he is treated very differently in Limerick because of his religion.He told the Limerick Post he often “gets looks” and is “slandered” in public. Verbal abuse is frequent with jeering and name calling happening at least twice a month. However he considers himself one of the lucky ones. Many of his people have been physically attacked when caught alone just for being Muslim.Mr Abdhulghafur stressed the point: “Everybody is different, You should be able to accept people the way they are.”A study conducted by James Carr, of the Sociology at the University of Limerick, explores how extensive anti-Muslim hostility is in the Republic of Ireland and how it manifests itself in community relations.His research has been on going since September 2010 and his findings have shown that more than a third of the people participating in the study reported experiencing some form of anti-Muslim hostility with Muslim women almost twice as likely to be targeted as Muslim men.Limerick demonstrated similarities with the other 13 Irish towns/cities involved in the study reporting instances of physical and verbal abuse ranging from the forcible removal of head scarves to having missiles thrown at people without provocation.In terms of discrimination, the main area of complaint highlighted in the study was that of employment.Mr Carr says “Comments and treatment that erroneously associate all Muslims with terrorism are common and reminiscent of the abuse experienced by Irish people in the United Kingdom during the Troubles.” Twitterlast_img read more
