Further details will be set out in a four-year plan next month.Speaking to national broadcaster RTE, Minister for Justice Dermort Ahern said the €15bn figure was based on a projection of average growth of 2.75 per cent per year over the next four years.“It’s based on the fact growth both internationally and domestically is no longer going to be as good as what we expected this time last year,” he said.Finance minister Brian Lenihan forecast growth of 3.3 per cent for 2011 when he unveiled the 2010 budget. But economists polled by Reuters expect 2.8 per cent and the central bank has said its forecast of just 2.4 per cent is in danger of being trimmed.Ahern said the government has yet to decide what proportion of the cuts would be front-loaded into 2011.

Osborne is believed to be keen to act before the FSA completes it investigations into toxic loans at HBOS and the collapse of Bradford & Bingley for fear they may be subject to the same restrictions. The regulator says the FSMA allows it to only publish details of investigations which result in it taking enforcement action against an individual or company. In the case of RBS the regulator found both the bank and Sir Fred innocent of any specific wrongdoing. As a result, the FSA says, it must seek the permission of those who were the subject of its investigations before it can go ahead and publish the report. But this weekend Goodwin’s friends suggested he would have no objection to publication of the FSA findings. Goodwin himself has refused to comment on the issue.The Treasury meanwhile issued a simple statement claiming that whether to publish the report or not was a “regulatory matter.” Since the findings were announced last week the FSA has come under pressure to publish, as have Osborne and Business Secretary Vince Cable. whatsapplast_img read more

first_imgLottery Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Opportunity for allWith younger generations focussing more on mobile, web and internet services, Richard Mifsud, CEO at Helio Gaming says: “There’s a great opportunity for lottery providers who want to do lottery in a better way and give the opportunity to the new generations to have gaming the way they want it.”He sees the vertical as an opportunity for many countries, and in particular in emerging markets, identifying Asia and Latin America as areas of significant growth. Additionally, Mifsud highlights Africa, where there are already a number of operators.He says: “The players in these markets have the same aspirations as in any other market, however, in this very unique market, what they want more is the excitement of low stakes and big win games.”Lottery equals loyaltyAs well as the company’s aim of working with state lotteries, Helio Gaming hopes to partner with various other operators such as casinos and sportsbooks, with Mifsud saying: “Up until today, they aren’t really benefitting from all of the opportunity that is being created by the new lottery vertical coming to the market.”Denis Wittebrood, sales and partnership relationship management at Helio Gaming says that loyalty is inherent to lottery players, which is something the company capitalised on with its portfolio of games and solutions.For instance, the solution enables operators to run campaigns to maximise on this loyal nature. Wittebrood says: “You can reward your loyal customers with free tickets, which also appeals to lapsed and dormant players. We’ve found in previous cases about 20% of player re-activation after a campaign.”Looking towards the futureAiming to keep pace with the evolving audience expectations, Helio Gaming is looking towards new opportunities in the lottery vertical.Casey Muscat, business analyst at Helio Gaming says: “We’re extremely excited about international lotteries – these are proven to be extremely popular. But what we’re really excited about is the introduction of live lotteries. We’ll be filming these from our Malta-based studios and really do believe these could be as popular as a live dealer is within a casino.With opportunities appearing across countries and for various types of operators, Helio Gaming puts forward a strong case for lottery as a solution to some of the concerns facing the industry.

first_img4th September 2020 | By Joanne Christie Despite the Gambling Commission’s stated aims of attracting a number of bidders for the fourth licence competition, there’s a possibility of yet another two-horse race, says Joanne Christie. Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Lottery Despite the Gambling Commission’s stated aims of attracting a number of bidders for the fourth licence competition, there’s a possibility of yet another two-horse race, says Joanne Christie. When the Gambling Commission kicked off the fourth National Lottery licence programme in late 2018, it looked as if Camelot was set to face stiff competition to hold on to the UK lottery.The Commission appeared to be casting the net far and wide in a bid to avoid the two-horse race of the previous two National Lottery tenders.It also made all the right noises about encouraging innovation and courting those with strong tech leanings. Indeed, in the early days even Lottoland said it was considering a bid.In the middle of last year, Gambling Commission chief executive Neil McArthur said he expected four or five companies to bid for the tender, and certainly the reported number of interested bidders supported this view.Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group was an early rumoured contender, Health Lottery operator Northern & Shell declared an intention to bid and Czech gaming conglomerate Sazka Group also seemed keen.Once a manager was brought in to oversee the process, rumours started to fly about other potential bidders, with Australia’s Tabcorp, France’s La Française des Jeux and Dutch postcode lottery operator Novomedia all names that were bandied about.But fast forward to last week’s official launch of the competition and the field seems to have narrowed.Even before novel coronavirus (Covid-19) hit, potential bidders were becoming disgruntled by delays to the process, which they saw as favouring Camelot.The pandemic brought about not only further delays – and an extension to Camelot’s licence – but also big changes in circumstances for some of the potential bidders. Narrowing field In early May it was reported that Branson was abandoning his bid due to the travails of other Virgin businesses, particularly its airlines.Shortly afterwards, Northern & Shell owner Richard Desmond came under fire over a controversial planning approval, which prompted Shadow Culture Secretary Jo Stevens to express concerns over his suitability to bid.Since then there’s been no confirmation as to whether or not Northern & Shell is still bidding, though it’s worth pointing out that even Camelot and Sazka have shied away from making a firm commitment.At this point, it’s hard to say with absolute certainty that any particular company will bid. Kamlesh Vijay (pictured, right), group CEO and director at Sugal & Damani, which lost out to Camelot last time the licence was up for renewal, says he doesn’t think the Commission has done enough to encourage bids.“We find it a little bit uncomfortable and see the Gambling Commission as not pursuing a process that attracts many parties, or not creating encouraging conditions for them to bid.“There is nothing at stake as far as the Gambling Commission is concerned. They are not taking even minor risks while searching for a new party. They are comfortable that they already have one party in hand. Whether other parties come in doesn’t make any difference to them.”Sugal & Damani, which operates licensed lotteries in India, as well as supplying technology solutions for lotteries in various other countries via its Skilrock Technologies arm, had publicly attacked the 2007 decision by the previous regulator, the National Lottery Commission (NLC), to award the licence to Camelot, threatening legal action. Similarly, Branson had criticised the NLC and also threatened court proceedings after he failed to secure the licence in 2000.However, Vijay says he did not see the Gambling Commission’s process this time around as being any different from that of the NLC.“The Gambling Commission is basically not changing its position; it just wants to repeat a similar process to what has been done before with a change in optics.“Theoretically, they may be doing everything but practically they are not doing anything for a change. They are asking for suggestions just for the sake of showing it up on their records but then those suggestions are not being seriously considered.”Among the suggestions Vijay says he put forward in his discussions with the Commission about the tender was that it should bear the cost of participation for the successful bidder, and that it should split the licence into multiple licences to encourage competition in the market. However, he says “there was no favourable response”.“They are going with the same single licence concept that practically favours the incumbent and it is going to be very difficult for any participant to replace the incumbent of 25 years.”Significant licence changes For its part, the Gambling Commission would not comment on any suggestions or discussions regarding those it had engaged with during the process, however, it must be noted that significant changes have been made to the licence this time around.For a start, it is fixed for a 10-year period with no possibility of extension by the licence holder. This marks a big shift from the current licence, which although initially for 10 years, Camelot was able to extend by four years back in 2012.Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, is the change in the way Good Causes contributions are calculated.In what is being referred to by the Gambling Commission as the ‘incentive mechanism’, Good Causes contributions will be collected in two parts. The first is a fixed sum that must be contributed irrespective of sales. The amount of this fixed contribution will form part of the bid put forward by each contender.In effect, if the licence holder doesn’t meet its sales targets, it could find itself making a loss as it will not be able to reduce this fixed contribution.In addition, the licence holder will have to give a percentage of any sales over and above the fixed contribution level to Good Causes, meaning contributions will rise in a similar proportion to profits.It is likely this change came about as a result of criticism of the current licence by the Public Accounts Committee back in 2018. It issued a report expressing concerns over the fact that Camelot’s profits had risen 122% since the beginning of the current licence, but that returns to Good Causes had risen by just 2% over the same period.The cross-party group criticised the lack of flexibility in the licence contract, saying: “Camelot has made profits well in excess of what was envisaged in the original 2009 licence, whilst returns for good causes have dropped.”However, Vijay points out that when Sugal & Damani tendered its bid for the last licence, a firm commitment to Good Causes was not enough to sway the NLC.“I would like to draw your attention to the third licence, wherein we had benevolently made a commitment to cap our net profit to 1%, thereby passing on the benefits to Good Causes,” he says. “Why should Good Causes increase only by 2% when Camelot’s profit increased by 122%?”Bidders on the fence Despite reservations about the process, perhaps surprisingly Vijay has not ruled out participating in this competition.“We are very much in the game, we are in the final stages of creating a strong consortium of credible partners, the details of which I don’t want to disclose at this moment.”While not exactly a definitive answer, this is perhaps the least non-committal response by any bidder since last week’s announcement.Northern & Shell has not responded to a request for comment from iGB, while Sazka says it has not yet reached a final decision on whether or not to bid.Even Camelot is keeping quiet over its plans. “We’re not in a position to confirm whether or not we’ll bid at this stage as we’ve not seen the final Invitation to Apply,” says a spokesperson.Despite the parties not confirming their intentions, it seems fair to assume that both Sazka and Camelot will bid. In particular, the former’s appointment last month of UK lobbying firm Flint Global as an adviser seems a pretty clear indication it’s still in the running.Exactly who else is in the running remains to be seen, but with the competition now officially underway, speculation should soon give way to certainty.center_img Déjà vu for National Lottery competition?

first_img July 18, 2016 at 11:35 pm I will always appreciate the role that Bishop Salmon played in my ordination to the priesthood in Charleston in 1998. It is a shame, however, that even in his obituary the Episcopal News Service continues its disingenuous reporting of how the Diocese of South Carolina left the Episcopal Church. The phrase “Mark Lawrence led a number of diocesan members out” of the church sounds as if he somehow duped a small group of individuals into departing. The truth of the matter is that the duly constituted Diocesan Convention voted overwhelmingly to leave, by a vote representing over 80 percent of diocesan membership. The minority who wished to remain in the national church boycotted the convention, which I covered as a journalist for the Episcopal Journal. The departure was an act of Diocesan Convention, not the whimsy or caprice of deluded followers of Bishop Lawrence, as ENS continues to suggest in news stories.

Rev. Edward L. Salmon Jr.[Episcopal News Service] The Rt. Rev. Edward L. Salmon Jr., 13th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, died June 29 in St. Louis, Missouri, at age 82.A memorial Eucharist for Bishop Salmon will be held July 2 at 11:00 a.m. at Grace Church Cathedral in Charleston, South Carolina. The Rev. Dow Sanderson will preach.The Church of St. Michael and St. George near St. Louis will keep a vigil beginning July 6 and funeral services will follow on July 7.Salmon was born in Natchez, Mississippi, on Jan. 30, 1934. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of the South in 1956. In 1960, he graduated from Virginia Theological Seminary, and was ordained a deacon in 1960 and priest 1961 in the Diocese of Arkansas.He served a number of congregations in Arkansas in the 1960s and 1970s: St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Rogers; St. James Episcopal Church, Eureka Springs; St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Springdale; and Grace Episcopal Church, Siloam Springs. He served as associate rector and rector at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Fayetteville from 1968-1978, then went to the Church of St. Michael and St. George in Clayton, Missouri, where he was rector from 1978-89.He was elected as the 13th bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina on Sept. 9, 1989, and consecrated Feb. 24, 1990. He served until January 2008. In retirement he continued as a member of the House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church and participated in the 78th General Convention in Salt Lake City last summer.Four years after Salmon left the South Carolina see, his successor Mark Lawrence led a number of diocese members out of the Episcopal Church in dispute over policy decisions made by the wider church. Those who wished to remain in The Episcopal Church are now part of what is known as The Episcopal Church in South Carolina, so named since Jan. 26, 2013, as part of on-going litigation related to the dispute.Bishop Provisional Charlie vonRosenberg of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina said June 29 that Salmon had served in South Carolina during a significant part of his time as bishop of East Tennessee, and thus they were colleagues. “Ed had a unique leadership style among bishops, and he could be counted on to offer his particular point of view on most matters,” he said in a statement. “His perspectives and personality were assets among his fellow bishops. He will certainly be missed.”In 2007, Salmon was awarded South Carolina’s highest civilian honor, the Order of the Palmetto. He served on the board of Kanuga Conferences, Hendersonville, North Carolina, and in leadership positions at schools and organizations including the University of the South, Voorhees College, Porter-Gaud School, Bishop Gadsden retirement community, York Place, and the Province IV House of Bishops. He served as dean of Nashotah House Theological Seminary in Wisconsin from 2011-2014. He also chaired the Anglican Digest board of trustees for many years.He married Louise Hack in 1972 and they have two children, Catherine and Edward, III.

You’ll notice a use of concrete that stands out from the basement all throughout the framing, in all three levels of the building, providing subtle accent and structure. Save this picture!© Herman SchumacherOne noteworthy aspect of this project is the simplicity on material used; concrete, black block and iron, which stand out along the two main facades. Another defining characteristic is the use of the core vertical circulations, present in the building‘s volume. Vertical circulations divide the 3 levels while introducing a different perspective to the configuration depending on where you stand. Lastly, the ventilation of the space is designed to keep the original vertical windows, keeping the air feeling very natural. Save this picture!© Mauricio SalasMoving to the interiors of each apartment, practically all the bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms have natural light and ventilation, demanding the level of comfort that our client wanted to achieve. Each 150 sqm apartment consists of 3 bedrooms (each with its own full bathroom), a study or office, a half bathroom, a living room or dining room, a kitchen, a service area and room, as well as balconies and an additional open space. Standing slightly apart from the others, Apartment 1 has two additional patios, which contribute a feeling of spaciousness to its interior. Apartments 2 and 3 have a private open space at the roof top, giving each a unique added value. Save this picture!© Mauricio SalasSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Mauricio SalasAs in many of our projects, finishing touches include landscaping where possible, private rooftops, and of course the use of natural materials as much as possible. Save this picture!© Herman SchumacherTo top it all off, I93 has a parking structure half a level below the sidewalk where tenants can find 24-hour surveillance, parking, pedestrian sidewalk access, and a multipurpose space for homeowners to take advantage of.Save this picture!© Mauricio SalasProject gallerySee allShow lessRemisenpavillon / Wirth ArchitektenSelected ProjectsPP Apartment / Nildo JoséSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Avenida Irrigacion 93, Col.

first_imgNew research by In Kind Direct has found that £1.37 billion of surplus and obsolete consumer goods are going to waste every year when a proportion could be donated to needy causes. The in-kind giving charity has called on businesses to give their surplus stock to UK charities.The charity commissioned the report to show the potential for the growth of ‘in-kind giving’. The report identified that each year the consumer goods sector alone produces enough surplus and off-spec products to fill the equivalent of 80 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Instead of being redistributed to those in need, much of it ends up in landfill and external recycling.In Kind Direct is 10 years old this year, and is one of ‘The Prince’s Charities’, a group of not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President. So far it has distributed £60 million worth of products from 700 companies to 4,000 UK charities working at home and abroad.

It argues that a further £80 million worth of in-kind giving is possible each year. To help businesses realise what they could do, it has identified the products UK-based charities need most, namely household cleaning products, basic toiletries, toilet paper, office supplies, cookware, tools, toys, linen and clothing.Charity CEO, Robin Boles explained: “Every day in the UK, charities struggle to raise sufficient funds to purchase essential items. At the same time, manufacturers and retailers will send these very same items to landfill, denying charities the chance to use these goods and make a real difference to people in need. “We save businesses time and money by redistributing the surplus and obsolete stock, which can tie up valuable warehouse space and management time, as we have the infrastructure in place to quickly accept donations and track everything through to the thousands of charities that benefit.”  22 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis In Kind Direct says £1.37 billion of surplus products wasted each yearlast_img read more
