first_img Tags: Online Gambling Finance Email Address Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has reported a year-on-year drop in revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019, as the gaming solutions provider was hit by declines across both its B2B and B2C segments.Revenue for the three months through to 31 December 2019 came in at €29.4m (£24.5m/$31.8m), down from €39.9m posted in the corresponding period in the previous year.B2C was GiG’s main source of income during the quarter, but revenue from this division fell 26.4% year-on-year to €19.0m.Meanwhile, B2B revenue was also down 26.2% to €12.1m, while revenue from GiG’s B2B media services arm slipped 13.8% to €7.5m for the quarter.GiG is yet to publish its full report for the quarter, but it did reveal that it was able to cut other operating expenses by 11.0% to €13.7m in Q4, primarily due to it decreasing its employee headcount from 706 to 648.In addition, GiG said earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) for the quarter stood at €4.8m, down 4.0% from €5.0m in Q4 of 2018.Key highlights in the quarter for GiG included the launch of a mobile sportsbook in Iowa with Hard Rock International, as well as securing a deal with William Hill is to launch the Mr Green brand in the Latvian igaming market.In addition, GiG entered into a new games licensing agreement with B2B casino games provider Swintt, and announced plans to launch GiG Data, a new next-generation data platform designed to integrate with its GiG Core igaming platform and third party solutions.Richard Brown, who took over as permanent chief executive of GiG in November last year, said that despite the revenue decline, the business is in a good position to pursue growth opportunities in 2020.“The dynamics in the online gambling industry, both competitive and regulatory, have changed dramatically in the last two years and we as a company are forcefully adapting to that,” Brown said.“We are coming out of a strategic review initiated in November last year, I am certain the actions taken will place the company in a truly exciting position for growth while securing the sustainability of the company’s financial position by significantly reducing its debt and leverage.”Publication of the financial figures comes after GiG last week announced that it was to sell off its B2C assets to Betsson in a deal worth €31.0m.The agreement will see Betsson take ownership of GiG’s Zecure subsidiary, to which all assets business activities, operations, front-end and middleware technology and gaming licenses required to run the sites will be transferred.The sale forms part of GiG’s strategic review, which was initiated in November 2019 in an effort to reduce complexity and improve efficiency. By divesting the B2C vertical, GiG said this will free up resources and as a result allow it to focus on securing stable and sustainable earnings and profit margins for its B2B arm.

President Sourav Ganguly’s term expires this month and if the amendment is allowed, both Sourav and Shah will stay on till 2025.Soon after the dispensation led by Ganguly and Shah took charge last October as elected office-bearers after the board was managed by a Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators for nearly three years, the BCCI started an apparent effort to dilute the apex court-directed administrative reforms. During its annual general meeting in December, the BCCI passed several resolutions that were allegedly contrary to the spirit of the reforms.

I believe Dada and Jay Shah should get a full term to again stabilise BCCI,” Verma told PTI.“Therefore on behalf of CAB, I will not have an objection if Dada is allowed to continue as BCCI president,” Verma said.“Out of his nine months, four months have already been lost due to coronavirus and any administrator needs time to implement plans and policies,” he added.Ganguly completes his six years by the end of this month while Shah is understood to have completed it.The former India captain earlier held positions in the Cricket Association of Bengal while Shah was a joint secretary in the Gujarat Cricket Association.

first_imgEl gobernador de Puerto Rico Alejandro García Padilla, sorprendió cuando le declaró al pueblo en mensaje televisado, que la deuda pública de PR es “impagable” y que “no se trata de política. Se trata de matemáticas”. Aceptar de pronto lo que el movimiento independentista y progresista de las islas – Puerto Rico es un archipiélago – viene diciendo desde hace bastante tiempo, es desconcertante. ¿Cuál es el propósito?Como mero administrador del gobierno colonial, García Padilla obedece, no a las necesidades del pueblo, sino a sus amos en Washington y Wall Street. Cuando dice que es impagable, no lo hace para proteger al pueblo, sino a los bonistas estadounidenses.La enorme crisis de PR, enmarcada dentro de la crisis del capitalismo en callejón sin salida a nivel global y en particular con la de Estados Unidos, ha puesto en escena una compleja trama para tratar de cobrarle al pueblo puertorriqueño el más mínimo centavo por los bonos municipales vendidos por los sucesivos gobiernos para cumplir con el funcionamiento del país y mantener a flote sus agencias públicas.La deuda, que ya ronda sobre los 72 mil millones de dólares, representa más de $20.000 por persona en PR, más que el ingreso medio de $19.518. (“Puerto Rico’s Fiscal Crisis is America’s Colonial Crisis”, por Angelo Falcon) El dinero prestado al gobierno solo ha sido utilizado para pagar las deudas locales o los enormes intereses que de PR recaudan los bonistas.  Aunque Moody’s y otras agencias han ido bajando progresivamente las cualificaciones de estos bonos a estado “chatarra”, estos bonos han sido apetecidos por las grandes firmas de tenedores de bonos por ser libres de impuestos y tener el rendimiento más alto existente.Aparte de los rendimientos, las tarifas cobradas por Wall Street son astronómicas. Un artículo de Forbes en 2013 titulado “How Wall Street Has Profited From Puerto Rico’s Misery” (“Cómo Wall Street se ha beneficiado de la miseria de PR”), reporta que “Las tarifas cobradas fueron mayores que las calculadas en otros estados y ciudades con problemas financieros de EUA. De hecho, de acuerdo con Reuters, a los bancos como UBS, se les pagaron en promedio márgenes brutos de un 31 por ciento más alto que los márgenes cobrados a Detroit”.El artículo concluye con lo que también se puede concluir ahora: “Para entender cómo Puerto Rico está en tales condiciones extremas, simplemente siga el dinero a Wall Street”. (, el gobierno de PR se encuentra en bancarrota y sin ningún crecimiento económico. A pesar de haber implantado medidas desesperadas para balancear el presupuesto desde incluso antes de la crisis económica del 2008. Medidas como la imposición de impuesto de ventas en 2006, los despidos de empleadas/os públicos en 2009, la reforma de pensiones en 2013, hasta el nuevo impuesto a la gasolina y el reciente IVU (impuesto de ventas y uso) entre otras. Nada ha mejorado la economía y el gobierno se encuentra sin posibilidades de continuar los pagos a la deuda.Reporte Krueger, receta neoliberal del FMIGarcía Padilla no hacía sino preparar al pueblo para la imposición de desastrosas medidas neoliberales contenidas en el reporte Krueger. El reporte de 30 páginas recoge un estudio detallado de la economía de la colonia y sus prácticas por 10 años consecutivos realizado por Anne O. Krueger, Ranjit Teja y Andrew Wolfe, ex economistas nada menos que del Fondo Monetario Internacional.Si bien el propósito de este estudio, “Puerto Rico, un camino a seguir,” era el de buscar la forma de extraer más ganancias a la colonia, tuvo por necesidad que abordar la verdadera crisis del país: el colonialismo, aunque no lo verbalice así. Refleja la realidad colonial que no tiene la capacidad de poder resolver los problemas financieros con una política soberana.Pero, ¿cuáles son esas recetas para sacar a PR del atolladero? El mismo informe resalta que son medidas difíciles que no tienen acogida popular, sobre todo de los sindicatos.Algunas medidas de este plan de cinco años son: Eliminar el salario mínimo de $7,25 la hora, el cual dice que es muy alto para PR y que se debe bajar hasta que la situación de PR se acerque a la del estado más pobre de EUA. Fin al bono de fin de año o de Navidad; reducción de vacaciones de 30 a 15 días; redefinir las horas extras a partir de 40 horas semanales y no como se hace ahora, a partir de las ocho horas al día; “reducir requisitos onerosos para demostrar causa justificada en despidos”; reducción de maestras/os y consolidación – léase cierre – de escuelas; reducción de las asignaciones a la Universidad de Puerto Rico, etc.Incluye además privatizaciones de agencias públicas como la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica, y otras agencias eficientes del gobierno que generan ingresos como el Fondo del Seguro del Estado.Algo novedoso en la propuesta es el pedido al congreso de EUA que excluya a PR de la imposibilidad de someterse a la Ley de Quiebra y así poder “renegociar” la deuda; y la suspensión de la Ley Jones, o Ley de Cabotaje que hace que todo producto que llegue a la isla desde dondequiera que venga, sea trasladado en embarcaciones EUA con personal EUA, lo que encarece el producto en más del doble.Una consecuencia de este informe es que involuntariamente, echa abajo algunas de las razones que quienes abogan por la estadidad utilizan para tratar de convencer que bajo la estadidad se estaría mejor y se tendrían más derechos. Cuando en el reporte se mencionan algunas de estas medidas, como por ejemplo, la reducción de vacaciones y de los requisitos para demostrar despidos injustificados, y redefinir las horas extras, argumenta que deben ser como los niveles en la “mainland” (EUA), donde se han perdido tantos derechos laborales.En PR, a pesar de ser colonia, la lucha sindical ha logrado avances que se han perdido en la “mainland”.  Otra comparación la hace con la educación, diciendo que hay que reducir el presupuesto de la UPR porque es muy barata y debe encarecerse como en EUA.Resistencia es educación y luchaWorkers World-Mundo Obrero habló con Luis Pedraza Leduc, portavoz de la Coordinadora Sindical y Coordinador de PROSOL, el Programa de Solidaridad de la UTIER, Unión de Trabajadores de la Industria Eléctrica y Riego, quien asistió a la reunión convocada el pasado 29 de junio por el gobernador para que alcaldes, legisladores, sectores de la sociedad y sindicatos, oyeran la presentación del informe por la misma Krueger. Pedraza Leduc mencionó el papel jugado por la Ley 66, la cual el Informe Krueger avala. Esta “Ley de Sostenibilidad Fiscal y Operacional del Gobierno del Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, permite al gobierno hacer los ajustes necesarios para atender la crisis fiscal que enfrenta el país”. ( Ha sido la base utilizada para atacar a los sindicatos.Dice Pedraza Leduc: “el planteamiento es de extender la Ley 66, significa no negociación colectiva y es eliminar beneficios. En el caso nuestro, de PROSOL, que estamos representando a los empleados de la Autoridad de Carreteras, que es una corporación pública, el lunes 29 de junio comenzamos en el tribunal un recurso de interdicto en contra de esta ley. Planteamos que esa ley es inconstitucional, porque va contra el derecho constitucional a la negociación colectiva y por lo tanto, a la libre asociación.“Esa es una medida que estamos tomando desde el punto de vista legal. La otra más urgente que está tomando la UTIER y el movimiento sindical, que es lo que vamos a estar haciendo en todos los sectores, es una discusión con los delegados y con la base de los sindicatos, de toda esta problemática. Que la gente se empape y discuta todo lo que está pasando para que tengamos una base de apoyo para las acciones de lucha. Porque no es una lucha (a nivel legal) y de discusión con esta gente, pues ellos (gobierno y consultores) ya tienen una decisión tomada”.Esta semana se celebrarán varias reuniones a ese efecto.Puerto Rico se encuentra en una encrucijada donde el movimiento progresista puertorriqueño, tanto en las islas como en la diáspora, necesitan de amplios debates y movilizaciones.

first_imgWhat we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit Facebook What we’re reading: Former Vice President dies at 93, Chad President killed on frontlines ReddIt printInstagram, Tory Burch, ELLE magazine and others decided to promote voter registration and a trip to the polls on Nov. 6. Tory Burch released a limited edition shirt with “VOTE” across the front. The fashion company created this shirt to urge young voters to cast their ballot.“When we choose not to vote — when we choose not to facilitate voting by the broadest numbers of people possible — we risk weakening our democracy,” said Tory Burch in her blog, Tory Daily. “Voting is something we must never take for granted; it’s a pillar of our democracy.”All net proceeds from the shirt sales benefit Eighteen x 18, a platform launched by actress Yara Shahidi. Shahidi is encouraging young adults to register to vote and cast their ballot in November. Actress Camila Mendes wore the Tory Burch shirt on the red carpet at the LA Film Festival in September. On Instagram, she discussed her first time voting — which she did by mail from Canada.“I think that celebrities and fashion companies promoting politics and voting is effective…it gets people thinking and talking,” said sophomore early childhood education major Allison Wade. “I believe that seeing these things can inspire people to get politically active regardless of political party.”Instagram partnered with TurboVote to make voter registration easier for its users. By creating ads in its users’ feeds and stories, the platform allowed users to get all the voter registration information in just a few minutes. The social media company also plans to provide a digital “I voted” sticker for its users to share on Election Day. The sticker will link to Get to the Polls website so users can find their voting locations.“The push for voting on social media has affected me in a positive way,” Wade said. “Spreading the word and information on voting through social media is extremely smart because most young adults spend a lot of time scrolling through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.”ELLE magazine partnered with When We All Vote to make sure its readers are ready for Election Day. In its October issue, the fashion magazine had an article on why voting matters and a letter from the editor, Nina Garcia, on why the 2018 midterms matter.According to the Voter Participation Center, voter participation is expected to drop 54.1 percent from 2016. Only 36 percent of eligible voters cast their ballot in the 2014 midterm election.ELLE also published a webpage with links to all designer vote t-shirts, including the Tory Burch shirt. “Because we are the next generation, I think it’s important for me to get in the habit of getting politically involved early and to educate myself on political issues and politics itself,” Wade said.

The national average for November represented an 11.82 percent increase from October’s non-current mortgage rate (the rate declined by 5.69 percent year-over-year in November). Mississippi’s November non-current mortgage rate of 14.88 percent was a 3.15 percent decrease from November 2013 and was still way below the Magnolia State’s peak of 22.85 percent, attained in October 2005.

The order has been passed by a division bench comprising of Justice PK Jaiswal and DK Singh, in a special appeal preferred by the Examination Regulatory Authority, Allahabad. The bench has however clarified that the state Government will be at liberty to continue with the selection process for 37,000 posts that were kept vacant for Siksha Mitras, in terms of the Supreme Court order dated June 9 in Subedar Singh & Ors. v. State of UP & Ors. On June 3, while hearing 31 writ petitions against the authority, a single-Judge bench of Justice Alok Mathur had stayed all proceedings for selection of assistant basic teachers and had referred the matter to the UGC, while it was of a considered opinion that there has been a material error in evaluation of the question paper. On a perusal of the final answer key, the bench noted that there was “serious confusion” due to which a large number of candidates are liable to suffer for no fault of theirs. The UP Examination Regulatory Authority had therefore preferred an appeal, stating that it was not given an opportunity to present its case. Maintainability The Respondents argued that the special appeal was not maintainable against an interlocutory order. However, the court was of the opinion that the impugned order has “trappings” of a final judgment and therefore, the appeal is sustainable. “The Special Appeal against the impugned order does have the trappings of a judgment, affects the right of the parties and at this stage, we cannot dismiss the appeal as not maintainable,” the court said. Non-joinder of necessary parties The examination authority pointed out that the Single Judge had not taken note of the judgment in Ranjan Kumar v. State of Bihar, (2014) 16 SCC 187, which mandates the impleadement of each and every candidate to the proceedings, and therefore, it was contended that the impugned order was bad in law for non-joinder of necessary parties. The court observed that this issue needed re-consideration. “The objection before the learned Writ Court regarding nonjoinder of proper parties was based on the law laid down before Apex Court in the cases of Ranjan Kumar and others v. State of Bihar and others [supra] and Rashmi Mishra v. M. P. Public Service Commission and others [supra] and thus needs re-consideration,” the order states. Benefit of incorrect answer/questions The Petitioner also argued that the Single Judge had patently erred in law in taking upon himself functioning of a Subject Expert that certain answers were incorrect and some of the questions had more than two alternative answers. The authority argued that as per the law settled in Ranvijay Singh v. State of UP, (2018) 2 SCC 357, in case of any doubt regarding the correctness of the question/ answer, the benefit shall go in favour of the appellants and not the candidate. Concurring with this submission, the Court said, “The ratio of Ranvijay Singh (supra) has not been considered in its true perspective and the learned Writ Court has observed that in case of doubt with regard to any question, the benefit should go to the Examining Authority rather than to the candidate, yet passed the impugned order staying the notification dated 8.5.2020 and all further proceedings thereon and, therefore we are of the view that prima facie case for interim relief is made out by the appellants.” Accordingly, the High Court stayed the impugned, subject to the Supreme Court’s June 9 order. It said, “Pending notice, the operation and effect of impugned order dated 3.6.2020 passed in Writ Petition No. 8056 (SS) of 2020, Rishabh Mishra & others v. State of U.P. and others and other connected writ petitions, shall remain stayed, until further orders of this Court. However, the State Government is at liberty to proceed further in terms of Apex Court’s order dated 21.5.2020 passed in Special Leave Petition (Civil) Diary No.11198 of 2020, Ram Sharan Maurya & Ors. v. State of U.P. & Ors. and order dated 9.6.2020 passed in Special Leave to Appeal (C) No(s).6687 of 2020, Subedar Singh & Ors. v. The State of Uttar Pradesh & Ors.” The court has issued notices to the Respondents and has posted the matter for consideration after 10 weeks.
