Already in the days following the Parliament’s ruling in June, we have demonstrated our ambition by signing a twelve-year sponsorship deal with the Swedish Elite Football Association.”Kindred is headquartered in Malta but maintains a hub in Stockholm. It was founded by Swede Anders Ström in 1997.Kindred described the re-regulation as “an important step” towards its aim of a Swedish market which offers “consumers the gambling experience they require in a safe and secure environment”.Household names such as Svenska Spel and Betsson were among 22 companies that applied for Sweden’s new gambling licences on the first day of submissions on August 1. iGamingBusiness.com understands that up to 70 licence applications are expected to be made ahead of the re-regulation that sees state-owned Svenska Spel’s gaming monopoly end.Lotteriinspektionen recently urged applicants to submit their documents as early as possible to be sure of being licensed before January.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Unibet owner submits application two decades after foundationlast_img read more

The BT share price is up nearly 30% in 2021. Is there a lot more to come?

first_img Enter Your Email Address The BT share price is up nearly 30% in 2021. Is there a lot more to come? The FTSE 100 was a sea of red on Tuesday. As I write, the London index is down 155 points, around 2%. But some shares have been briefly popping into positive territory, with BT Group (LSE: BT-A) among them. The BT share price was a fraction down at 2pm, but it had shown small gains during the morning.Looking back over 2021 so far, BT shares have gained 29%. And BT’s recovery since the worst of last year’s crash is among the FTSE 100’s best. We’re looking at an 80% increase since a low point in September. And since the pandemic hit in February 2020, the BT share price is already in positive territory, up 11%.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…That does hide a pretty rotten longer-term performance for BT though, as the shares had been on a long slide well before the pandemic arrived. Over the past five years, BT shares have lost a whopping 61% of their value, even including this year’s gains. They say past performance is not an indicator of future performance. For the sake of BT investors, I do hope that’s true in this case.BT share price recoverySo, are we finally looking at a long-awaited comeback for the BT share price? We should get some clues on Thursday, when BT is due to release full-year results.Over the past few months, we’ve had a string of news stories. Most recently, and perhaps most intriguingly, is last month’s update on BT Sport. The company told us that “early discussions are being held with a number of select strategic partners, to explore ways to generate investment, strengthen our sports business, and help take it to the next stage in its growth.”In other words, BT is looking to sell off part of its TV sports business. Amazon has been mentioned by some as a potential partner, and ITV looks to be in the picture too. If anything comes of this, I’d see it as a potentially good move. I haven’t been too impressed by the way BT Sport has been managed, especially when it comes to some of the sums the company has stumped up for football rights in the past. And any cash injection that comes from it should help BT’s main telecommunications business. And that, the firm’s core strength, is what I see as key to long-term BT share price growth.Cautious, but not buying yetBut, while I’m generally optimistic, it’s going to take more than one set of results to get me to buy BT shares. Over the past couple of decades, I’ve not been impressed by BT’s management of cash flow and debt. Even at the third-quarter stage, at 31 December, BT was carrying net debt of £17.3bn. Granted that was down nearly a billion from a year previously. And it was at the end of the Covid-ravaged 2020. Capital expenditure was on the high side too, at £3bn.I’ll be looking at both of those in the upcoming results. But, more importantly, I’m waiting to see how any potential BT Sports deal will help with cash flow, expenditure, and debt. That’s what I think could boost the BT share price in the longer term.

Florida church to offer same-sex marriage in diocese that previously…

first_img Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Youth Minister Lorton, VA [Episcopal News Service] The General Convention resolution aimed at making marriage rites available to same-sex couples in all the church’s domestic dioceses took effect more than a year ago, in December 2018, though the pace of implementation has varied between the handful of dioceses that previously had refused to offer the rites.Supporters of the new rites were particularly critical of Diocese of Florida Bishop John Howard, accusing him in January 2019 of failing to honor the intent of Resolution B012 in the process he established to comply. Howard denied those allegations.A year later, a congregation in Howard’s diocese, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Tallahassee, is now moving forward with plans to offer the rites to same-sex couples.The vestry at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Tallahassee, Florida, voted last month to offer marriage rites to same-sex couples. Photo: St. John’s, via FacebookAfter an extended process of discernment, a committee of nine church members issued a report in December in which most of the group recommended offering the rites, and the vestry decided in late January to accept that recommendation.“We want to do our very best to care for God’s people at St. John’s,” the Rev. Dave Killeen told the Tallahassee Democrat. Killeen, the rector, was one of the nine members of the consultation group. “All couples will be treated equally… We want to make sure everyone feels comfortable and has a place here at St. John’s — that they know they are loved and valued.”Howard had been one of eight diocesan bishops who, citing their theologically conservative views on marriage, initially refused to allow clergy in their dioceses to use the trial rites that General Convention approved in 2015 for use in same-sex weddings. In 2018, General Convention passed B012, calling on all bishops to make provisions for allowing the rites in any jurisdiction where civil law allowed same-sex marriage.Some of the eight holdout bishops, including Howard, announced processes that relied heavily on one provision of the resolution that specified they should ask outside bishops “as necessary” to provide pastoral oversight when congregations request to use the rites.Howard’s canon to the ordinary, the Rev. Allison DeFoor, referred questions directly to Killeen and told Episcopal News Service by phone that Howard planned to delegate another bishop to oversee matters relating to all marriages at St. John’s. That bishop has not yet been identified, Killeen said, and Howard will continue to provide pastoral oversight for St. John’s on all other matters.Howard “was very, very supportive of the process itself,” Killeen told ENS.The St. John’s vestry approved use of the rites in a majority vote on Jan. 28, according to the church’s website. The decision partly drew on the input collected from parishioners at three forums, held last year in June, September and October.“Our clergy has been in touch with Bishop Howard to share the St. John’s Vestry’s decision,” the church said on its website. “Bishop Howard has pledged to continue to wholeheartedly support the missions and ministries of this church.”At least one other congregation in the diocese has gone through the same process. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Fernandina Beach notified Howard late in 2018 that it intended to offer the rites to same-sex couples, and Howard said he would delegate another bishop to provide oversight there, the Rev. Stephen Mazingo, rector at St. Peter’s, told ENS. He said he made the decision to move forward with the support of lay leaders, though no same-sex couples have yet asked to be married in the church.Change came much faster to the Diocese of Dallas, where Bishop George Sumner agreed after General Convention in 2018 to allow same-sex marriage under Missouri Bishop Wayne Smith’s oversight. In January 2019, less than two months after B012 took effect, the Dallas diocese’s Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration and Episcopal Church of St. Thomas the Apostle held services to bless the unions of 24 gay and lesbian couples who previously had been forced to marry outside the diocese or in civil ceremonies.Same-sex couples in the Diocese of Albany, meanwhile, have yet to benefit from a change in policy because Bishop William Love continues to refuse to allow the rites for their weddings in his northern New York diocese. Love’s decision now has become the focus of disciplinary proceedings against him, under The Episcopal Church’s Title IV Canon. A hearing in that case scheduled for late April.The Diocese of Springfield, in the mostly rural southern half of Illinois, is another conservative diocese where same-sex marriage had been forbidden. Bishop Daniel Martins responded to B012 by reluctantly agreeing to a process similar to the one Sumner adopted in Dallas, though its implementation last year drew less fanfare.Martins allowed the Chapel of Saint John the Divine, at the University of Illinois in Champaign, to use the trial marriage rites after delegating pastoral oversight of the chapel to Fond du Lac Bishop Matt Gunter, as Martins outlined in an October letter to the diocese.Later that October, the chapel posted a simple congratulations on its Facebook page to “Andrea and Sarah on the blessing of the marriage today!”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The house is located on a sloped corner site in the Innovation City, and it’s looking at a distant mountain in the northeast. The site is sitting at an intersection of a mixed-use housing block and a general dispatched housing block. To use the existing slope, the floor of the retail area on the 1st floor is divided from its corner into two in a diagonal direction, and the level of those two floors are set differently in order to maximize spatial flexibility. For the house on the 3rd floor, its access, entrance and living room are designed to offer a view to the mountain in the northeast. The living room is placed on a space where the mass is segmented in two directions so that it can be linked with a deck outside and also take advantage of natural ventilation all the time.Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonWe are living in the era of single households. Yet in Ulsan, decent housings for them are very scarce. For the people who are living in a rented house under the circumstances, the architect wanted to create a quality space. And as single-room or two-room housings don°Øt provide any independent or private space at all, he wanted to give a separate access and a sense of privacy to the residents while proposing a communal space by using a central circulation established on the corner. For the residence of the owner on the 3rd floor, he attempted to place a kitchen, the owner’s most valued element, in a most decent area, and also to introduce an outdoor space which can be accessed from the living room, kitchen and bedroom. Save this picture!DiagramThe essence of this project is the experimental and unconventional circulation system. The straight stairs which draws a diagonal line across this corner site is an unacceptable concept for general owners of mixed-use housing because they think it will affect the lease income of the 1st and 2nd floors. However, considering the nature of the site connected with a dispatched housing (2-storey) block, the architect thought it would be better to split the retail area on the 1st floor into two independent leasing spaces. And as the site is touching the streets on both sides, there would be no problem to use the entire retail area as one space. On entering the 3rd floor via this stairs, one always comes to face a scenery of distant mountains and the close one behind the dispatched housing block. The outdoor stairs provide an access to each unit, and in the end, turn out to be an outdoor terrace for them. During this process, space comes to experience contraction and expansion alternatively and ends up stimulating an architectural excitement. Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonThe tight budget was the biggest challenge of this project. The owner couldn’t allow going over the budget, and the architect had to use it very meticulously. As all owners do, it was natural for the owner to desire better and more things within a given budget. So it was very difficult to lead the owner who is possessed by such an idea and set priorities through choice and concentration in accordance with the budget. But during that process, the owner agreed with the architect suggesting to give a top priority to essential elements in order to create a good space, and also he gave full support to ideas proposed by the architect. Save this picture!© Joonhwan YoonProject gallerySee allShow lessRumah Miring / Andyrahman ArchitectSelected ProjectsAedas’ Pebble-Inspired Lè Architecture in Taipei Nears CompletionArchitecture News Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794318/double-house-on-architecture Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeON ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUlsanSouth KoreaPublished on August 30, 2016Cite: “Double House / ON Architects” 30 Aug 2016.

Nuwa is located in Nuha-dong, Seochon, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Seoul. It is the oldest village along with Bukchon and was the residence of the royal family, scholars, and the middle class since the Joseon Dynasty. After the Japanese colonial period, it was a village of writers and artists from various fields. It is a town where painters such as Chusa Kim Jung-hee, Jeong Sun, Lee Joong-seop, Lee Sang-bum, Park No-soo, and other poets and novelists such as Seo Jung-joo, Kim Dong-ri, and Yoon Dong-ju lived.

A small foot bridge of the alley, changing direction as the alley dramatically curves, and lastly the time-enduring gate; all together transform the ordinary village into the space of wayu.Save this picture!© Texture on TextureSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Texture on TextureDirecting. Intended spatial presentation throughout the interior space encourages customers to use the space and to bring strong awareness to what’s inside. A conventional space design revolved around the concept of openness in consideration of the free movement and user variables. On the other hand, Nuwa wanted to be more involved in suggesting the programs that the space offers so users can experience it. For Nuwa, where its footprint is only 23m2 means the effective use of space will have a stronger impact allowing it to excel in performance compared to other, larger spaces. Save this picture!© Texture on TextureFinishing Material. It seemed impossible for Nuwa’s old and run-down building to regenerate the image of Hanok (traditional Korean house), which represents a sense of tradition. However, this means the building a blank canvas, creating the potential to attempt experimental design. Nuwa’s finishing material had to be something that will expand the space awareness of the small place and accentuate every element of the detailed program. Therefore, instead of using various materials, we considered using only one material to finish the floor, wall and a few pieces of built-in furniture. Save this picture!© Texture on TextureFurniture and Interior Items. Along with the spirit of wayu embodied in the programs, when space design creates the vibe and the quality of the room, the last crucial piece of the puzzle was furniture, interior items and branding where guests’ skin touches and eyes rest. From a book to a tea cup, the size and location of everything was designed and placed meticulously. Nuwa holds an elegant style from the past but at the same time embraces or redesigns elements of modern convenience such as an electric cooktop, a sink, a fridge, all while minimizing the visual imbalance between past and present. Save this picture!© Texture on TextureBranding. The highlight of Nuwa’s design is its branding. Since the concept of stay stands in the vague boundary between the ordinary and the extraordinary, we thought our customers might not be familiar with our direction. Therefore, we took into account the function to guide our intention and the use of the program as well as the logo to be imprinted in their mind. The logo of Nuwa, swaying under the eave where the landscape is captured, is the ultimate peak of space and branding total design that Z_Lab pursues.  Architects: Z_Lab Area Area of this architecture project GRIDS Area:  29 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Nuwa House / Z_LabSave this projectSaveNuwa House / Z_Lab South Korea Construction: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938161/nuwa-house-z-lab Clipboardlast_img read more

Need for Guest Worker Program Recurring Theme at Committee Hearing

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Feb 6, 2013 Home Indiana Agriculture News Need for Guest Worker Program Recurring Theme at Committee Hearing Facebook Twitter Need for Guest Worker Program Recurring Theme at Committee Hearing SHARE Immigration was the topic of news conferences, meetings at the White House and a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday. While Tuesday’s hearing was focused on border security, the history of immigration law and the issue of allowing highly educated people to enter or remain in the country – Chairman Bob Goodlatte mentioned agriculture in his opening statement. According to Goodlatte – U.S. laws erect unnecessary hurdles for farmers who put food on America’s tables. He said our agriculture guest worker program is simply unworkable and needs to be reformed. CNN reports a guest worker program is on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s mind as well. He said any plan on reforming the system must include increased border security and a guest worker program before any discussion can take place on a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the country. Farmers are also on the mind of Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Ranking Member Zoe Lofgren – who said we need to reform our employment visa system so tech companies, farmers and other businesses have access to needed workers.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Previous articleIndiana Ethanol Plant Sale ApprovedNext articleCattlemen Make Progress Toward Beef Sustainability Gary Truittlast_img read more

Pioneer Crop Update 4/15/15

first_imgHome News Feed Pioneer Crop Update 4/15/15 He said growers are anxious to get into the fields, but he urged patience, “I recommend the soil has to be at least 50 degrees, and planting just before a rain is also not a good idea.” He said growers should wait for a break in the showers, “A cold rain within 24 to 48 hours of planting can cause some serious emergence issues.” He added that a wet seed bed is also to be avoided. Facebook Twitter SHARE With very little field work having been done, Emmett says growers will face some tough decisions when the rain does stop, “They are going to have to decide if they are going to put on anhydrous pre-plant which will mean they will have to wait to plant to avoid seedling injury.” Some growers may opt to forgo this application in order to get the seeds in the ground and come back later with an application. Facebook Twitter The rains in Indiana have not been as significant as predicted this week so some field drying has taken place, especially in Northern Indiana. There have even been some reports of scattered planting activity, but that has not been the case in the Southwest part of the state.  “There has been almost no field activity in this part of the state so far this growing season,” Dan Emmett, field agronomist with  DuPont Pioneer in SW Indiana, told HAT. “A few guys were out just before Easter, but since then the rains have kept fieldwork at a standstill.” SHARE Pioneer Crop Update 4/15/15 By Gary Truitt – Apr 15, 2015 Emmett says it is not time to push the panic button yet, “It is only the middle of April, so we still have plenty of time.” He said, in 2013, corn in his area did not get planted until the end of May and yields were still good.  With more rain in the forecast for Southern Indiana next week, it is unlikely that fieldwork will begin for at least another week.
