German licensing authority reiterates igaming warning

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter German licensing authority reiterates igaming warning 22nd November 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Poker Email Address The body responsible for processing German online sports betting licence applications has once again stressed that operators must shut down any online casino or poker products if they are to operate legally in the market.The Regional Council of Darmstadt, representing the state of Hesse, added that any operator that continued to target German players without applying for a licence, or fail to adhere to the terms of the State Treaty on Gambling, would face severe consequences.In an open letter to the industry, the Council said it had been forced to speak out as a result of press statements calling for a delay in the licensing process.It noted that some sources claimed operators should hold back from applying until a decision was taken on Germany’s future gambling regulations. The third amended State Treaty on Gambling, will come into force from 1 January 2020, and expire on 30 June, 2021, with discussions between state lawmakers over the future framework are ongoing.Others had claimed a delay was necessary as a result of a lack of transparency over what regulations would actually be brought into force. Some have questioned whether the prohibition on in-play betting, or a €1,000 monthly spending limit for players, or even the online casino prohibition, would be enforced.“The state gambling supervisory authorities will not tolerate this,” the letter said.“Once the third amended State Treaty comes into force, sports betting providers that continue to operate in the German market without securing permission to do so can expect to be sanctioned.”The Council explained that all application documents and relevant information – which confirms elements such as the in-play prohibition and monthly spending limit – are all publicly available.It warned that it would take a strict approach towards operators that failed to abide by the terms of the Treaty. It has been granted additional enforcement powers allowing it to take action against such provider, it added“Therefore should no licence application be submitted to the Regional Council of Darmstadt, we will immediately prohibit the illicit offerings,” the Council continued. The regional prosecutor, state broadcast media regulators, and federal Finance Intelligence Unit will all be informed, and asked to initiate proceedings against the offender.Finally, the Niedersachsen Ministry of the Interior, the body responsible for payment blocking orders, will be notified so it too may take action against the company in question.The Regional Council’s intervention follows some operators, most notably GVC Holdings, arguing that the licensing process was likely to be derailed by legal challenges.GVC said in August that it was confident it would be able to continue providing in-play wagering, including match outcome and goal markets – which represent around 80% of its German in-play revenue – until 2021. The operator even suggested it could be given dispensation relax maximum monthly customer loss or spending limits, or continue to offer online casino in the market.Analysts at Regulus Partners, however, have estimated that operators could see revenue from sports betting slashed by up to 70% should the Treaty be enforced in full. The body responsible for processing German online sports betting licence applications has once again stressed that operators must shut down any online casino or poker products if they are to operate legally in the market.

Kevin Godbold | Thursday, 10th June, 2021 | More on: SKG Enter Your Email Address Our 5 Top Shares for the New “Green Industrial Revolution” When it comes to searching for shares to buy, it’s worth remembering that a Stocks and Shares ISA is a good place to hold them for the long term. ISAs have flexibility and tax advantages. There are no restrictions about when I can draw money out. And my ISA serves as a useful addition to my retirement planning.High-quality businessesI’m always searching for shares to buy that can be held for the long term. My plan involves ploughing all returns back into my investments. For example, there could be dividends and capital gains crystallised when I sell shares. Sometimes cash returns arrive in my ISA account because of various corporate actions by the underlying company. And I reinvest it all in pursuit of compounding my gains.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…But with long-term investments, compounding can happen in a second way within the underlying business. When companies make money, they can reinvest some of it into their businesses to drive growth. Earnings can then rise and the process repeats. When growth like that happens, the share price and shareholder dividends often rise to reflect those compounding gains in the enterprise. However, nothing is guaranteed and companies can perform poorly too, causing dividends and share prices to fall and me to lose money with my ISA shares.Nevertheless, I’m keen to embrace the risks that come with stocks because the potential gains are often higher than the returns available from holding cash savings. To me, it’s all about balancing risk against potential rewards. And I try to minimise the possibility of losing money on shares in my ISA by focusing on the quality of a company’s operations.For example, the FTSE 100‘s Smurfit Kappa (LSE: SKG) is achieving double-digit percentage returns against equity and invested capital. And the operating margin is running just above 10%.Why I think Smurfit Kappa is share to buyThe paper-based packaging provider has seen stable demand for its products in recent years. And part of that has come from serving the fast-moving consumer goods and parcel delivery sectors. In today’s digital retail world, market trends in the sector favour the business. And Smurfit has been working on reinvesting in growth projects to boost future earnings.City analysts expect earnings to increase by almost 5% this year and more than 15% in 2022. meanwhile, with the share price near 3,791p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is around 15 for next year. And the anticipated dividend yield is almost 2.9%. I think the valuation is undemanding for a thriving business with growth on the agenda.At the end of April, Smurfit Kappa reported a “strong” first-quarter performance. And the directors expect “accelerated” revenue and earnings growth through the rest of 2021. Of course, nothing is guaranteed, and if the company doesn’t meet earnings expectations, the shares could fall in value.And one of the risks is Smurfit Kappa isn’t the only packaging provider in the market. There are many. So competition is at a high level. Nevertheless, the company is a big player with worldwide operations and a strong trading and financial record. I’d embrace the risks and buy the shares to hold for at least 10 years and probably longer as the company’s growth strategy plays out.last_img read more

Alex Cuthbert try and Grand Slam celebrations

first_imgTuesday Mar 20, 2012 Alex Cuthbert try and Grand Slam celebrations By now you’ve probably seen highlights of the Wales vs France game in Cardiff on the weekend, but for archive purposes and for those who want to relive it, here’s another quick look at the Alex Cuthbert try, as well as some of the Grand Slam celebrations.Cuthbert, still very new on the scene at just 21, scored what was effectively the winning try against France, and since spoken about how life has changed for him in recent times.“It’s crazy how much everything has changed in such a short time. I could never have thought I would be scoring the winning try in a Grand Slam game six months ago. I was just expecting to train with the Blues seniors,” he said.“There is still a huge amount of development and learning to come from both the team and, of course, myself. Being in the Welsh environment has already upped my game, playing with world-class players like George (North).“I do look up to George – even though he is only 19. We are still so young, as are many of the boys. As the years go by, we can only get better.”During the game Wales’ young captain Sam Warburton had to go off injured after picking up a shoulder problem. The prognosis is still unknown, but he’s having it checked out today following an MRI Scan that proved inconclusive.“Not much showed up on it. There is a bit of concern because I am still in quite a bit of discomfort. I do not know what to think – it could be two weeks, or it could be two months.“I felt guilty lifting the trophy because I could see the state of some of the players. Their bodies were hurting because they had tried so hard. I was embarrassed not to be able to play in the second half, as well as shattered. It was the biggest game of my career,” he added.Wales travel to Australia for a three-test series in a few month’s time. How do you see that going?

UL researcher awarded €1.5m European grant for energy research

first_imgRecently awarded EU funding, Dr MicheáL Scanlon will continue his research work at the University of Limerick University of Limerick researcher Dr Micheál ScanlonA University of Limerick (UL) researcher is to benefit from an European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant to the tune of €1.5m in the further development of clean energy.Electrochemist Dr Micheál Scanlon is to further develop his research into unfurling a new way of imitating photosynthesis in the leaves of plants to generate clean electricity or solar fuels such as hydrogen gas.The UL researcher is the only ERC award recipient in Ireland in the area of physical sciences, and one of only three Irish-based researchers to be funded this year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The research is aimed at finding solutions for the world’s rapidly growing energy consumption which will double over the next 30 years.Dr Scanlon’s research into solar photovoltaic (PV) technology is deemed vital to achieve environmentally sustainable progress.Within the next 15 years, the solar PV market in Europe alone is projected to be worth €10bn per annum.The new approach taken by the UL researcher aims to eliminate the use of solid materials and instead achieve solar energy conversion using a liquid-to-liquid interface.“Liquid-liquid interfaces are found everywhere in nature, including in the membranes of cells in plant leaves, which are photosynthetic. There are light-harvesting molecules called chlorophyll in these membranes.“The liquid-liquid interfaces I use have the fantastic ability to trap and bring molecules together, especially molecules that are similar to chlorophyll. By coating these interfaces in all sorts of light-harvesting molecules, I can create an artificial photosynthetic membrane capable of producing energy.”The funding grant will go to assisting Dr Scanlon’s goal to study the interaction of light with the artificial photosynthetic membranes he is creating.The grant was welcomed by Dr Mary Shire, vice-president of research at UL.“Receiving a European Research Grant is a tremendous accolade for any researcher and this year, Dr Scanlon is one of only three Irish-based researchers to receive an ERC award.

Wisconsin reintroduces bill to make English the official language of state

first_imgiStock(MADISON, Wisc.) — Lawmakers in Wisconsin are reviving a proposal from a 2013 bill in hopes of making English the official language of the state.Sens. André Jacque, Steve Nass and Dave Craig, all of whom are Republicans, reintroduced the bill on Monday.The legislation would additionally require all written statements by state and local government in Wisconsin to be in English unless otherwise specified by law, or if another language is appropriate to the circumstances of an individual case, according to a copy of the preliminary draft of the bill obtained by ABC News.Such cases could include protecting the health and safety of a citizen, protecting the rights of a criminal defendant or crime victim, or promoting tourism, according to the draft.Jacque told ABC News that his hope for the bill is to create more opportunities for all U.S. residents.“When you do gain English proficiency, a greater world of opportunities open to you,” he said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “I think it helps put people in a place of greater economic self-sufficiency,” he added.The proposal has support from both Republicans and Democrats, according to Jacque. He is hopeful that it will be referred to a standing committee sometime this month.The memo cites a Rasmussen Reports poll of 1,000 American adults that showed 77% supporting English as the official language.At least 27 other states have passed official language laws, according to the online archival site of the U.S. Constitution.Critics of the bill are calling it discriminatory.“I feel like no one is asking for this,” Christine Neumann-Ortiz, executive director of Voces de la Frontera Action, told ABC Milwaukee affiliate WISN. “It’s not going anywhere, and the only purpose it serves is to provide discrimination against a group of people. And it’s disgusting in my opinion.”There is no official language in the U.S. The majority of Americans, about 79%, speak only English at home, according to the U.S. Census’s most recent data in 2017.The census also showed that the number of U.S. residents speaking a foreign language at home reached a record of nearly 67 million and nearly half of the residents in the country’s five largest cities speak a language other than English at home.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
