Betfair ups NRL commission to withstand new costs

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Oceania Australia 27th May 2020 | By contenteditor Betfair will once again allow exchange wagering on the Australian National Rugby League (NRL) after the two parties agreed finalised a new integrity deal, though the agreement has forced the operator to increase the commission it charges on customer winnings. Email Address Topics: Finance Sports bettingcenter_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Betfair will once again allow exchange wagering on the Australian National Rugby League (NRL) after the two parties agreed finalised a new integrity deal, though the agreement has forced the operator to increase the commission it charges on customer winnings.While the terms of the new partnership have not been disclosed, it comes after Betfair suspended NRL markets in February this year, arguing that the fees being demanded by the league would mean offering odds on the sport was long longer viable.As a result of this new deal, punters will now face a market base rate (MBR) of 10% for the remainder of the 2020 season, an increase on the 6% commission rate that had been in place for 2019. This means that if a bet stands to make a £100 profit, the player will have £90 plus their stake returned.According to the operator, the rise was unavoidable as if the MBR had remained at 6%, then the NRL would have taken more than two thirds of Betfair’s revenue earned from rugby league betting markets in product fees.Betfair added that when accounting for operating costs and relevant federal state and taxes, including point of consumption taxes, offering markets on NRL events at the old MBR would not be financially viable.“While we are disappointed that a change to a 10% MBR has become necessary, we do congratulate the NRL for the work it has undertaken in getting the NRL season up and running again,” Betfair said.Betfair also noted that the new rate is four times more expensive than the 2.5% MBR it currently has in place with the Australian Football League Aussie rules football competition. Confirmation of the new MBR comes as the NRL prepares to restart its season after it was temporarily halted due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.The NRL will resume from tomorrow (28 May), with the AFL to follow on 11 June.

GlaxoSmithKline: the GSK share price is down 12% in a month. Should I sell my shares?

first_imgGlaxoSmithKline: the GSK share price is down 12% in a month. Should I sell my shares? Cliff D’Arcy | Saturday, 20th February, 2021 | More on: GSK Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares What should investors do when core shareholdings fall out of favour? Should they cut their losses by selling up and moving on? Or should they stick with key stocks by holding on for future recovery? At the moment, this is my dilemma with my largest shareholding, my shares in £62.3bn pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK). The GSK share price seems to be in freefall, so is should I give up and invest elsewhere?GlaxoSmithKline shares head for 10-year lowsThe GSK share price hovered around 1,217p, down 1.7% on Friday as I wrote this (although it finished the day ‘only’ 1.08% down). Also, it has fallen 12.1% over the past month. This puts GSK at #100/100 among FTSE 100 shares in terms of share-price performance over the past 30 days. Ouch.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…Furthermore, GSK’s share price is down 11.2% over three months, 18.8% over six months, 25.7% over a year, 21.1% over two years, 6.% over three years and 10.2% over five years. Thus, GlaxoSmithKline’s stock has been in steady decline for a long, long time. As a GSK shareholder, I regret not selling in January last year, before Covid-19 wreaked havoc on global markets. On 17 January 2020, GSK shares closed at 1,846p and then peaked at an intraday high of 1,857p a week later. This was the GSK share price’s highest point in almost two decades, approaching levels not seen since 2001. Now, 13 months later, they have crashed more than a third (-34.5%) from their 2020 high.Three reasons why I’ll keep holding GSKThe fall in the value of my family’s GSK holdings over the past 13 months has been very steep. By my reckoning, it is more than enough to buy a lovely holiday home. Yet, despite this substantial paper loss, we’ll hang onto our GlaxoSmithKline shares for now. Here’s why.First, as GSK’s share price falls, its dividend yield increases. With the yearly dividend stuck at 80p a share for the past five years, GSK now offers an even higher income stream. At 6.5% a year, it’s more than twice the dividend yield of the wider FTSE 100. As we hold GSK largely for income, I would prefer to keep our share of its £4bn yearly cash payout.Second, GSK’s most recent quarterly results revealed 2020 sales up 1% to £34bn, pre-tax profit up 16% to £7bn, and earnings per share (EPS) of 115.5p, up 23%. It also confirmed an expected dividend of — you guessed it! — 80p a share for 2021. Though EPS will decline in 2021/22, GlaxoSmithKline aims to launch at least 20 new biopharma products by 2026.Third, as a long-term value investor, I like buying (and not selling) cheap stocks. And I see GSK shares as very cheap in historical terms. Today, they trade on a price-to-earnings ratio of 10.5 and an earnings yield of 9.5%. Nowadays, hardly any UK large-cap shares offer such generous fundamentals to patient investors.I’ll keep buying more GSK sharesOf course, my faith in GlaxoSmithKline could be very misplaced. Mr Market doesn’t ring a bell when a share price is set to rebound. The GSK share price could continue to decline. It might even fall below £10 to prices not seen in a quarter-century. But I’m optimistic that next year’s split into two companies (biopharma and consumer healthcare) could be positive for shareholders. Hence, I will continue to reinvest my GSK dividends into buying yet more of this dirt-cheap FTSE 100 share! Enter Your Email Address Cliffdarcy owns shares of GlaxoSmithKline.

Los miembros también discutirán temas más relacionados con la Iglesia, tales como la labor de fe y disciplina, consultas litúrgicas y relaciones interreligiosas, educación teológica e iniciativas devocionales.El Consejo se reúne cada tres o cuatro años, y la reunión en Hong Kong es la 17ª. sesión. El CCA se reunió la última vez en abril de 2016 en Lusaka, Zambia. Está regresando a Hong Kong donde tuvo lugar en 2002 su 12ª. reunión. La primera reunión se celebró en Limurú, Kenia, en 1971.El tema de la ACC-17 es “Equipar al pueblo de Dios: profundizar en un discipulado consciente”. Atiende un llamado de la ACC-16 hace tres años (por vía de la Resolución 16.01) para concentrarse en un discipulado consciente a través de la Comunión Anglicana. Un “discipulado consciente” se define como la deliberada priorización de acciones individuales e institucionales de vivir como discípulos de Cristo  y atraer a otros a esa vida.El objetivo del CCA, según su constitución, es “fomentar la religión cristiana y en particular promover la unidad y propósitos de las iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana, en la misión, la evangelización, las relaciones ecuménicas, la comunicación, la administración y las finanzas”. Entre las facultades del CCA que aparecen listadas en la constitución, hay una que dice que debe “desarrollar tan extensamente como sea posible políticas anglicanas consensuadas en la misión mundial de la Iglesia” y alentar a las provincias a compartir sus recursos para laborar hacia el cumplimiento de esas políticas.Propagar el Evangelio y “continuar extendiendo la misión de la Iglesia” debe ser el tuétano de la reunión, dijo Ballentine, que asistirá a su segunda reunión del CCA.El obispo de Oklahoma, Edward J. Konieczny, dijo que él espera “vernos proseguir para crear oportunidades de estar en diálogo a través de nuestra Comunión y de que encontremos medios de no centrarnos tanto en todas las tensiones y desacuerdos, sino centrarnos más en la misión a la cual hemos sido llamados: la edificación del cuerpo de Cristo y responder a las necesidades reales del mundo que nos rodea”.La catedral de San Juan [St. John’s Cathedral] en Hong Kong celebra su 170º. aniversario en 2019. Durante la ocupación japonesa de Hong Kong, de 1941 a 1945, la catedral se convirtió en un club para los japoneses y la despojaron de muchos de sus accesorios originales. Foto de la catedral de San Juan.El alcance de la Comunión alrededor del mundo significa que “tenemos una increíble oportunidad de trabajar juntos y de encontrar medios de responder a esas reales y auténticas situaciones de vida o muerte”, dijo Konieczny, que se dirige a su primera reunión del CCA. Él quiere explorar cómo “crear más oportunidades para aquellos de nosotros en lugares con algunos privilegios y recursos de ser canales y asociados para prestar ayuda en otros lugares donde exista una necesidad”.Konieczny añadió que él quiere entender qué [tipo de] trabajo se está haciendo a través de la Comunión. “¿Estamos sólo hablando de eso, o tenemos realmente los pies en el suelo y a la gente realmente dedicada a hacer la obra juntos?”El Rdo. Michael Barlowe le dijo a ENS que él espera compartir con “mis hermanos y hermanas de la Comunión Anglicana” lo que él dijo que es “un relato convincente de una Iglesia que está haciendo bien su ministerio y de formas nuevas”.Por ejemplo, Barlowe dijo que él cree que el tema de la reunión “es acorde con lo que estamos haciendo en el Camino del Amor”, aunque lo que la Iglesia Episcopal está haciendo es “más detallado y más orientado hacia algo que pueda ser usado lo mismo por individuos que colectivamente como comunidad”.Barlowe, que es el director ejecutivo de la Convención General, está sirviendo de suplente a la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, quien habría asistido a la última de las tres reuniones a las que tenía derecho. Rebecca Wilson, su portavoz, dijo que a fin de cumplir con otros compromisos y de usar prudentemente el presupuesto de viajes de la Iglesia, Jennings le pidió al Consejo Ejecutivo que nombrara a Barlowe como el miembro clerical suplente para esta reunión del CCA. Barlowe, que representa a la Iglesia Episcopal en reuniones de los secretarios provinciales de la Comunión, ya estaba programado para viajar a Hong Kong para esa reunión que tendrá lugar del 6 al 9 de mayo.Los tres miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal hicieron notar que, debido a que el CCA está compuesto de obispos, clérigos y laicos, es el organismo más representativo de la Comunión. La diversidad, dijo Ballentine, crea oportunidades de [ofrecer] un modelo que trascienda las diferencias teológicas en el seno de la Comunión. Los miembros del CCA “pueden provenir de provincias que tienen diferentes puntos de vista sobre muchas cosas, pero esa persona logra conocer a Rosalie y Rosalie llega a conocer a esa persona  y sabemos que, al fin de la jornada, todo se reduce a nuestra común humanidad, a nuestra fe común, eso es para nosotros lo más importante de asumir”, afirmó ella.De las 40 iglesias autónomas, o provincias, y las otras seis iglesias nacionales o locales conocidas como “extraprovinciales” que componen la Comunión, sólo Nigeria y Uganda no están enviando representantes a la reunión de Hong Kong. La La lista de los participantes en la CCA-17 se encuentra aquí.“Creo que el CCA es la conciencia de la Comunión Anglicana”, dijo Barlowe, en parte porque incluye los tres órdenes. “Como he descubierto, jubilosamente, en mi vida en la Iglesia Episcopal, tener todos los órdenes a la mesa siempre es una manera de mantener viva la conciencia de la Iglesia, porque es fácil para muchos de nosotros [miembros] de un orden en particular no ver el panorama general”.En la catedral de San Juan, situada en el corazón del distrito financiero de Hong Kong, tendrán lugar las eucaristías de apertura y clausura de la 17ª. reunión del Consejo consultivo Anglicano. La iglesia es el más antiguo edificio eclesiástico occidental que sobrevive en Hong Kong. Foto de Wikimedia Commons.Plantear el asunto de LambethKonieczny dijo que el carácter representativo del CCA hace que sea el “lugar apropiado” para suscitar el tema del conflicto que surgió luego de saberse que el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby decidiera excluir a los cónyuges del mismo sexo de los obispos invitados a la Conferencia de Lambeth 2020.La discusión sobre la Conferencia de Lambeth está ahora programada para el final de la mañana del 4 de mayo como uno de los tres temas de la 19ª. sesión de trabajo, de las 21 que habrá en la reunión. También en la agenda de esa sesión se incluyen un debate sobre las finanzas del CCA y asuntos concernientes a la organización (que prosiguen de la sesión anterior) y la primera de las dos veces en que los miembros examinarán resoluciones. La sesión está programada para que dure 75 minutos. En la última reunión del CCA se probaron 45 resoluciones,  todas ellas en votaciones  de aprobación o rechazo conforme al calendario acordado.“No espero que vaya a ver resoluciones  en el CCA pidiéndole al Arzobispo que cambie de actitud”, dijo Konieczny. “La agenda está muy ajustada y, en mi opinión, está siendo supervisada”, de manera que las tensiones están reducidas al mínimo y ese empeño “puede impedir la posibilidad de tener algunas conversaciones”.“Personalmente, no veo cómo podemos ir al CCA, dado donde nos encontramos en la Iglesia hoy día y con la Conferencia de Lambeth el próximo año, y ni siquiera abordar, en mi opinión, las repetidas resoluciones de Lambeth, del CCA y de otras partes de la Comunión que afirman que hemos de escuchar a todas las voces de la diversidad de nuestra Iglesia, y luego sin embargo hacemos cosas que bloquean esas voces de venir a la mesa”, recalcó Konieczny.Ballentine estuvo de acuerdo. “Todo se reduce a querer que prosiga esa labor de crear relaciones, y uno no puede hacerlo si algunas personas no están a la mesa”.Barlowe explicó que, como alguien que “ha participado en los debates acerca de la plena inclusión y ha percibido las consecuencias” de esos debates, le entristece que personas y provincias individuales  estén  “aún cosificadas” debido a su discernimiento de esa inclusión.“La historia que conozco es que todos nosotros estamos ansiosos de compartir con nuestros amigos de toda la Comunión Anglicana”, dijo; es la historia de cómo el discernimiento de la Iglesia Episcopal acerca de la inclusión se ha hecho “para la misión y el ministerio de la Iglesia”. El resultado de ese discernimiento es la experiencia de “cómo Dios nos libera para ser quienes debemos ser para ministrar en nuestro tiempo y en nuestro lugar”, afirmó.Miembros del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano que asistieron a la 16ª. reunión del 8 al 19 de abril de 2016, posan en las gradas de la catedral de la Santa Cruz en Lusaka, Zambia. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.¿Qué es el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano?El Consejo Consultivo Anglicano es uno de los tres Instrumentos de la Comunión, siendo los otros dos la Conferencia de Lambeth de los obispos anglicanos y la Reunión de los Primados. El arzobispo de Cantórbery (que es el presidente del CCA) es considerado como el  “el foco de la unidad” de los tres instrumentos.El CCA es responsable de organizar la labor de los comités y redes de la Comunión, así como del personal y del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana. Hay en la actualidad 10 redes temáticas que abordan y describen varios asuntos y áreas de interés en la Comunión Anglicana.Creado en 1969, el CCA incluye clérigos y laicos, así como obispos, entre sus delegados. La membresía consta de uno a tres representantes de cada una de las provincias o iglesias extraprovinciales. Donde hay tres miembros, hay un obispo, un sacerdote y un laico. En provincias con menos miembros, se les da preferencia a los miembros laicos.Representantes de los asociados ecuménicos de la Comunión asisten también y, por primera vez, la CCA-17 incluirá dos delegados jóvenes de cada una de las cinco regiones geográficas.La ubicación de esta reunión ha cambiado desde abril de 2016 cuando los funcionarios del CCA y la Iglesia Episcopal del Brasil anunciaron que Sâo Paulo, Brasil, sería la sede de la conferencia de 2019. En septiembre de 2017, el Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana dijo que la reunión se mudaría a Hong Kong porque, según el Servicio de Noticias de la Comunión Anglicana  [Anglican Communion News Service], se había programado en lo que “sería un tiempo conflictivo para [Brasil] y para la Iglesia Anglicana allí”.Se suscitaron inquietudes acerca de la inestabilidad política y económica del país junto con “discusiones sobre la sexualidad humana y el matrimonio”, que debían tener lugar en su sínodo provincial de 2018. Los anglicanos de Brasil aprobaron en junio de 2018 cambiar sus cánones para permitir matrimonios de personas del mismo sexo.– La Rda.

Louisiana abortion case is headed to the Supreme Court

first_imgThe Supreme Court ruled Feb. 7 to stop an anti-abortion law, passed in Louisiana in 2014, from going into effect. News reports made a big deal about the fact that Chief Justice John Roberts chose to vote with the four justices who support abortion rights, yielding a 5-4 decision in favor of the stay. However, as Rewire.News pointed out Feb. 8, this was merely a procedural vote to ensure the law would return to the Supreme Court for a final decision in 2020. The Louisiana law is a near-exact replica of a Texas law the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in 2016. That law would have forced doctors who perform abortions to have “active admitting privileges” at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic where they provide abortions. The court held then that the requirement did not protect the health of pregnant women, as the state of Texas asserted, but would impose an “undue burden” on women who choose to obtain an abortion.  In line with the 2016 ruling, a federal trial court agreed that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional. But last fall the notoriously reactionary U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit reversed the ruling so the law could go into effect for the first time in Louisiana.The Center for Reproductive Rights then filed an appeal to the Supreme Court on behalf of Louisiana abortion providers requesting a stay to keep the law from going into effect until the providers could file a petition for review. Roberts’ vote was not to affirm abortion rights, according to Rewire, but was a hands-off message to the lower court not to short-circuit the Supreme Court’s power. All the SCOTUS vote did was maintain the status quo. If any court is going to overturn the 2016 ruling, it will be the “Roberts’ Court” — after oral arguments and deliberation.  But newbie Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who swore up, down and around town he would never undercut abortion rights during Senate hearings last fall, willfully opted to write a dissent to the ruling that revealed his true anti-abortion position. Kavanaugh asserted that the only way to prove whether the admitting-privileges requirement would impose an undue burden was to let the law go into effect and see what happened. He opined that if the doctors could not obtain such privileges, they could then return to court, but if they did not, it proved the law would not impose an undue burden. But Kavanaugh failed to take into account the serious consequences for pregnant women, since implementing the law would mean only one doctor in the state of Louisiana would be allowed to perform abortions. As the plaintiffs pointed out in their brief: “Some women could be completely denied the choice to terminate a pregnancy and forced to carry the pregnancy to term.” (scotusblog.com, Feb. 7)  The ruling ultimately shows Roberts is not a born-again pro-choice hero, but a strict defender of the Supreme Court’s prestige and power, which was surely sullied by Kavanaugh’s history of attempted rape of a teenage girl. Kavanaugh’s dissent revealed, yet again, that he is truly heartless and cruel about women’s health and well-being. The thousands of women who protested against his nomination understood this in their bones. Kavanaugh will clearly follow Trump’s marching orders to overturn legal abortion, but that will not stop millions of women, gender-oppressed people and men from marching to uphold the right to legal, safe, accessible abortion, as they did in the 1970s, which effectively prompted the Supreme Court to legalize abortion. And as recently as Jan. 19 at the third Women’s March, people demonstrated yet again their determination to defend women’s reproductive rights and fight for reproductive justice.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The computer virus spread through the network of Tribune Publishing, one of the nation’s largest newspaper companies, affecting newspapers including the Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette and the New York Daily News. It also slowed the distribution of the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times on the West Coast, as they share a printing plant with the Los Angeles Times.

Michelle Obama surprises a dance class at her former high school

first_imgABC News/Chuck Kennedy(CHICAGO) — Former first lady Michelle Obama was greeted with squeals and shocked faces when she surprised girls in a dance class at her high school alma mater.Obama, 54, visited Whitney Young Magnet High School during a visit to her hometown of Chicago for an exclusive interview with with “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts in early November.Their visit, which aired Sunday in the ABC News special “Becoming Michelle: A First Lady’s Journey with Robin Roberts,” was supposed to be a quick drop-by visit but turned into much more.As a photo of a young Obama, then named Michelle Robinson, hung on a wall nearby, the former first lady shared lessons with the girls about how she found her voice in high school. “I want you all to learn how to be advocates for yourself in this life,” Obama said. “Because people will try to take your voice and shape it in a way that has nothing to do with who you really are.”Obama also spoke candidly with the students about some of the obstacles she faced while serving as the first lady. Obama’s memoir, “Becoming,” will be released on Tuesday, Nov. 13.“I had to fight stereotypes and notions that people thought they had about what a black woman from the South Side of Chicago should be,” she said. “I was labeled as angry and not an asset to my husband, all because I was using my voice.”She added, “Don’t feel like something’s wrong with you when you have some bumps in the road.”Obama also spoke to the students about confidence in response to a question about how she had proven herself as “more than just the president’s wife.”“You have to grow to believe that in yourself. Each and every one of you as women have to, and it doesn’t happen overnight,” she said. “Confidence and all of that sort of stuff, belief, that takes time.”“You’ve seen something that I didn’t see. You grew up in a different way, so live that way. Carry that forward. Make sure that we’re not slipping backwards,” she told the students. “And that’s up to you guys as the next generation. You’ve seen great women do amazing things. You have role models everywhere now, and none of us got here easily without someone trying to hold us down.”Obama continued, “So find the [role] models that match your vision, because now they’re there. We’re all here waiting for you.I would love to hug each and every one of you. I’m proud of you guys.”When Isa Sanchez, a junior elected by the high school as a student body representative, asked Obama how she can help “make everyone as happy as can be,” Obama responded with advice likely learned from her eight years as the first lady.“First of all, you stop trying to make everybody happy. It’s impossible,” Obama said. “That’s not why people elected you. They’ve elected you because they trusted your judgment, so you’ve got to trust it.” Obama stayed to watch the girls perform the dance routine they had been rehearsing prior to the surprise visit.“I’m so proud of you,” Obama said after the performance. “Do not doubt anything.”The former first lady ended her visit with a group hug with the dance students.“For us, in this moment, it was so inspiring to see someone who we look up to give us that boost of confidence,” junior Payton James said at the end of the visit.“She could show that as females we can still speak our minds and not have to fade into the background,” senior Lauren Radomski said of Obama’s impact.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
