Heaps of regulatory uncertainty is part and parcel of investing in the gambling sector. And lawmakers in the UK have been getting particularly tough with gaming companies in recent times.In April, lawmakers slashed maximum stake sizes on fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) to just £2 in a move that has caused hundreds of betting shops to close. And regulators have been at it again this week by banning punters making bets on their credit cards from next April.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…The Gambling Commission believes the move will help curb addiction and stop many gamblers racking up huge debts. It’s estimated that up to 800,000 people gamble using a credit card.Quite resilient!This is another obstacle for the likes of GVC Holdings (LSE: GVC), to name just one, to conquer. But I believe the business — whose brands include Ladbrokes, Foxy Bingo and bwin — has the mettle to overcome these problems. And latest financials released today showed why.It’s not that the FTSE 250 firm isn’t suffering some fallout of greater regulation. Indeed, like-for-like net gaming revenues (NGRs) across its betting shops dropped 11% in the fourth quarter. However, GVC is performing better than many as punters substitute their FOBT fix for betting face to face. In quarter four, for instance, a 17% boom in ‘over the counter’ like-for-like NGRs helped offset the 31% drop in corresponding machine NGRs.An internet sensationThe biggest takeaway from GVC’s financials, however, was that online sales keep growing at a blistering rate. Indeed, so strong was its performance online that even in spite of those betting restrictions on its machines, at group level NGRs at constant currencies edged 1% higher between October and December.Thanks to what it described as “strong across all major territories”, GVC saw online NGRs at stable currencies soar 11% in the final quarter of 2019. Gaming revenues generated via the internet rose 9%, while corresponding turnover from sporting events leapt 15% year-on-year.Business has remained so strong that earnings for 2019 would hit the top end of guidance, GVC said. Its current £670m-£680m estimate is the result of an upgrade made just a few months ago. I, for one, am buzzing over what the business will be guiding for 2020 when preliminaries hit on March 5.More to comeCity analysts currently expect earnings at the gambling giant to soar 20% in 2020. And it’s more than likely (at least in this Fool’s opinion) that the bottom line should keep soaring into the next decade. Its US expansion is paying off handsomely, while the acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral in 2018 offers plenty more upside too.At current prices GVC boasts a low forward P/E ratio of 12 times and a large 4.2% dividend too. Offering plenty for value, dividend and growth hunters to get stuck into, this FTSE 250 share is one I’d happily buy today and hold for years to come.center_img Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Cardiff Blues and Wales playmaker Gareth Anscombe

first_img Who are the jokers at Cardiff Blues?Well, Dan Fish doesn’t shut up. It took me a month to understand him with his thick Cardiff accent and his lisp. I know Willis (Halaholo) and Rey (Lee-Lo) also struggled to keep up with him. He’s a bit of a character. When Fishy and Lewis Jones get going they’re like Beavis and Butt-Head.Any practical jokes you can share?I got into a prank war with Tom James, which wasn’t a good idea. It started with me ‘apparently’ taking his car parking spot, which I didn’t think was his, and escalated with us going through each other’s bags. It ended with him pinching my car keys and driving my car out into the fields with no petrol. I couldn’t find it and they were pretty decent wheels. Finally, the boys told me where it was!Prankster: Tom James engaged Gareth Anscombe in a succession of practical jokes. Photo: Getty ImagesWhat makes you laugh online?I like the Facebook memes, the witty one-liners you see. Most of the boys tag each other so we’re insulting each other on a daily basis.What are your nicknames and why?My nickname is Chicken. I was hoping when I came here I’d have flicked it but thanks to Jarrad Hoeata it travelled over from New Zealand with me!It’s down to the size of the pins I have. I’ve been working hard in the gym to build them up but I reckon it’s all those fast-twitch fibres I have. I’m not too worried, as long as I can run around on them.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREAny funny nicknames in the Blues squad?Macauley Cook has so many nicknames. Many we can’t mention for fear of court cases but it’s usually Spudsy. His dress sense doesn’t help – he wears some outrageous stuff. Along with the big ginger locks and beard, he’s a big target.Do you have any phobias?Snakes creep me out. I’ve had to do a few media shoots with them and it’s been pretty hard work. Not pleasant at all.What annoys you?As I’m getting older I’m becoming bothered by untidiness. Now I’ve got my own house, my partner has noticed that I’m getting a bit OCD if things aren’t tidied up in a certain way. Perhaps it’s because I’m a fly-half, I want that control. Jarrad Hoeata, who’s extremely messy, used to sit next to me in the locker room and take up three spaces. We used tape to mark out our territory.Rain man: Jarrad Hoeata is now back playing rugby in New Zealand. Photo: Getty ImagesWhich person would you least like to be stuck in a lift with? Dive time: Gareth Anscombe scores for Cardiff Blues. Photo: Getty Images I’m halfway through a Bachelor of Business degree. I’m doing lots of online learning. Apart from taking a stake in a business, I’d still like to keep my hand in with rugby when I retire. That’s a little way off, hopefully.This article first appeared in the October 2017 issue of Rugby World. New Zealand-born Cardiff Blue Gareth Anscombe talks coffee, cricket and chicken legs LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There’s hardly anyone I really dislike but there’s this character in Game of Thrones, Joffrey. I absolutely hated him. He was such an unpleasant individual.What’s been your most embarrassing moment?I was captain in my last year at school and was leading the team onto the field. There was a rope for supporters, one of those awkward ones where you don’t know whether to go under or over it.I went for the latter and fell flat on my face in front of hundreds of people and the lads – the only saving grace is that no one caught it on camera! It damaged the teenage ego, alright.If you could have three dinner party guests, who would they be?The late Michael Jackson, as he was a musical genius. The late Muhammad Ali, simply the GOAT (greatest of all time). And Kim Kardashian. That would be an interesting party!Centre stage: Michael Jackson in one of his iconic stage outfits.

I had a couple of tons and my best bowling figures were 5 for 12.What’s your guilty pleasure? McDonald’s. I’m a big fan. Whenever I go past the drive-thru, I find it drawing me in. When I’ve had a rubbish week or I’m feeling a bit low, I’ll sneak in there.What do you miss about New Zealand?The standard of coffee and the independent cafés. Here you get a lot of chains and the coffee is pretty average. I’ve looked at investing in a coffee shop. Something to consider for the future.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?

House in Perbes / Vier Arquitectos

first_imgSave this picture!Courtesy of Vier ArquitectosAt first, this house has been conceived as a dialogue among two volumes together with the ground, in which the materials, the voids, the transparencies, the inner and outer spaces and the indefinite or intermediate ones participate in an active way. As well as the garden, the water, the light. Finally the result is a simple composition, with a volume (the highest one) sculpting the ground as a concrete wall and, gliding along the front part, the appearance of a light box which opens to the sea, full of transparencies and reflections, floating over metallic pillars. The chosen materials are to become better and better as years pass by, thanks to the expressiveness achieved by their own aging, without the fragile and evasive finishes which may be undoubtedly inopportune, under the damp climate of the Galician seaboard. Save this picture!Courtesy of Vier ArquitectosThe highest volume, “the wall”, made out of reinforced concrete –it could not be other way- stands out in the inside, petrified, the same goes for the slate that covers floors and toilets. It is covered on the outside with a cladding ventilated facade made of cedar wood boards from Canada. From the same species and origin are the cedar trees in the garden. On the inside, a family environment has been established, unitary, with an empty diagonal which links every floor and establishes a visual and acoustic relation among the spaces. In this volume the same diagram is repeated on every floor: unitary space and services core. In the “open box”, and thanks to the swaying movement of the glazed plane, which goes winding between the two volumes, the spaces reach an order –protected and open-air, interior and exterior, seeking the maximum richness, taking advantage of the location and its singular landscape, which matches up with that of the childhood.At last, a house, in which those childhood and adolescence experiences ring, where the memories of the well-known, the light, the sand, the sea, the landscape and the games melt, indissolubly, with architecture.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSix Projects Selected as Public Interest Design Global Award WinnersArchitecture NewsKenneth Frampton wins Lifetime Achievement Award at Lisbon TriennaleArchitecture News Share Projects Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/459324/house-in-perbes-vier-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” Save this picture!Courtesy of Vier Arquitectos+ 18 Share House in Perbes / Vier Arquitectos Year:  Save this picture!Courtesy of Vier ArquitectosRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0Fiber Cements / CementsEQUITONEFiber Cement Facade Panel NaturaText description provided by the architects. A few times, the devising process of a house starts from youth experiences, from the marks of the place, from childhood as such. On some occasions, the architect can take part somehow in the choice of the place or the plot of land, but it is not frequent, however, to be fortunate enough to have the landscape –as in this case- deeply anchored in the bottom of one’s childhood. We are talking about the entrance to the Ría, the Miño Beach, in A Coruña. This landscape -seen from the southwest side of the hill- is going to be the determining factor in the location of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Vier ArquitectosThe reflections about the idea of the “lifetime house” (for maturity, for the children, for the old age and, also, a house for the family) have necessarily determined the creation of a flexible space, easily adaptable. But that concept of house demands, at the same time, the attention to all the requirements of social and cultural kind and those aspects expected from a contemporary house: comfort, safety, identity. The house, therefore, must be flexible, its spaces must adapt without traumas to the needs of use, to the possible drastic or unforeseen changes; it must respond to a relation with the immediate outside and, also, with the most far-off. And it must widely encourage -indeed- the relationship among its own spaces.

Marches in Portugal, Italy protest austerity

first_imgPortuguese unionists hit the bridges.The main Portuguese union federation, the CGTP-IN, reported Oct. 19 that “Many tens of thousands of workers marched today in the two major cities of our country and on the islands of Madeira and the Azores. Their goal was to defend the gains of the April 1974 [anti-fascist] revolution, and raise demands against exploitation and impoverishment, and that the government resign.“This government has been implementing a policy of violent austerity with brutal and accelerated cuts in wages and pensions, which shamefully benefit the big industries and financial institutions. At the same time it obeys submissively the international ‘troika’ [European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund] that impose a painful choke-collar on our people and our country.“This regressive anti-labor and anti-social policy is reflected perfectly in the draft governmental budget for 2014. If this budget is approved it will further aggravate the sacrifices of the workers and the people.“The CGTP-IN union confederation had planned for the workers and the population to walk across the Ponte 25 de Abril [the main bridge in Lisbon, the capital]” on Oct. 19, but the government banned it from crossing on foot. “Workers and the CGTP-IN eventually crossed the bridge, using about 400 buses, in addition to private cars and motorcycles, culminating in a powerful concentration of resistance and struggle.” In Portugal’s second city, Oporto, the marchers were able to walk across the Infante bridge in “one of the largest demonstrations ever in the northern capital.”The CGTP-IN announced a new demonstration in Lisbon to be held in front of the National Assembly on Nov. 1, a likely date for the vote on the government budget for 2014.In Rome, anti-austerity protesters threw eggs and firecrackers at the Italian Finance Ministry during an Oct. 19 march to oppose the lack of low-income housing and cuts to welfare programs. More than 50,000 marched and were harassed by 4,000 riot police, who arrested 11 demonstrators.A day earlier a 24-hour nationwide strike in transportation slowed down or stopped much travel. Airports in Rome, Naples, Milan and Bologna had to cancel some flights. School and health workers also went on strike. The strikes were called by rank-and-file-led unions.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fears Irish crab exports to China may cease over new protocols

Students learn to saddle up

first_img Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Learning to properly saddle and mount horses is just part of the instruction offered by the Goshen Rodeo and Equestrian Club. Keisha Thomas, Jacee Chandler and Matt Barron found a shady trial to be the best place to ride when the temperature is pushing 100 degrees. (Photo/Jaine Treadwell)Goshen riding club appeals to youngstersOn one of the hottest days of the year so far, the members of the Goshen Rodeo and Equestrian Club disregarded the heat and hit the trails for an end of the year ride.The club’s director, Kelly Pritchett and instructor, Monica Law, had hoped the club could get in one more trail ride before the weather got too hot, but they didn’t make it. So they rode off into the sunshine anyway. You Might Like Hobbies make the home Back in the 1980s, W.O.

Working with the horses, the kids get a sense of personal ownership. They have this animal to take of that is helpless and can’t take care of itself. That teaches them responsibility and accountability.”The club members learn about horse management, animal health care, vaccinations and how to take proper care of their horse’s hooves.Pritchett said that while the young equestrians are learning about horses and their care and how to ride, the horses are learning to interact with children.And, those were the goals for the students and the animals when the Goshen Rodeo and Equestrian Club was organized two years ago. By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Print Article As the woodlands provided shade, the club members provided the enthusiasm and the horses never missed a step.“We have to take a break during the summer because of the heat,” said Pritchett, who is also the agriscience instructor at the Pike Agriscience and Technical Career Academy at Goshen High School. “But we did get in a good ride even though it was an extremely hot day.”During the school year, the club meets two hours for riding instructions each Tuesday and Thursday and what the club members had learned was evident as they saddled their horses for the ride. “We recognized the need for expanding our equine education program and one way was to offer training through an equestrian club,” Pritchett said. “Monica is an excellent rider and gives riding lessons so she is actually our instructor and the kids are really responding to her instructions.”The rodeo and equestrian club started with five girls and has “blossomed” to 15 girls and three boys.The Ag Academy has its own riding arena and rodeo is an emerging sport at Goshen High School.“We use the rodeo and equestrian club to recruit students to the Pike Agriscience and Technical Career Academy,” Pritchett said. “The club participates in all of the Pike County Saddle Club events and four of our students are members of the Alabama High School Rodeo Association. Several are also members of the National Barrel Horse Association and that’s great exposure for our club and the ag academy.”Although most of the members of the Goshen Rodeo and Equestrian Club are ag academy students, it’s not a requirement.“We do go out of the school district for those who want to take riding lessons,” Pritchett said. “We want to offer this opportunity all of those are interested. Being a part of the rodeo and equestrian club helps keeps students in school. It’s an encouragement and it’s therapeutic. And some students are interested in equine management. There are career opportunities in equine chiropractic, massage therapy and as a farrier.”But, while in high school, the members of the rodeo and equestrian club have opportunities to participate in area rodeos and shows.“To participate in shows, you don’t have to have a fancy trained horse or a registered horse,” Pritchett said. “Participants compete in timed and skilled events including barrel racing, pole bending and the arena race and stake race but not events like roping and bronc or bull riding.”Horseback riding experience is not required to be a member of the Goshen Rodeo and Equestrian Club.“You don’t even have to own a horse,” Pritchett said. “We have four lesson horses at the school that are available for those who don’t own a horse but want to learn to ride. “Usually, the kids will get real involved and want their own horse. And, we do board horses here at the school. We have 15 acres of pasture. The boarding is free. The students just pay for the feed.”Membership in the rodeo and equestrian club is $50 a semester and that takes care of feeding and vaccinating the animals.“The club is for anybody who enjoys riding or wants to learn,” Pritchett said. “We always welcome new members.”For more information, call 334-484-3245.
