Carlsberg could also turn to bottled water and soft drinks if that paid off, he said at the company’s annual investor day. “When we look at innovation in the future, we will see products that support beer,” he said.Head of global sales, marketing and innovation, Khalil Younes, said: “We have launched Somersby in 12 markets, including Russia, with great success.”Eve, flavoured with fruit juice, has also done well there, Younes said. “Year-to-date we have sold 60 per cent more than our budget. So we have surprised ourselves.”Among other non-beer products, the group has launched Tuborg Lime Cut in Denmark and Norway.Rasmussen said he expected east European markets to begin growing again soon after a hard 2009.The group’s Ukraine chief told Reuters in an interview that the local market – Carlsberg’s second biggest by volume – had turned around after shrinking seven per cent in 2009.Carlsberg stood by its mid-term target for operating margin in its Northern & Western Europe division to rise to 15-17 per cent in 10 years, finance director Jorn Jensen said.

China avoided a rise in interest rates last week, opting only to nudge up the reserve requirement ratio (RRR). “The market’s sharp gains on Monday were driven by pent up demand following milder than expected policy tightening,” said Zhuo Xiangyu of China Securities Information. But “many people” fear that monetary tightening will come before the year end, he said. Tuesday 14 December 2010 9:01 pmlast_img read more

DC betting delayed over DC Lottery, Intralot concerns

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter DC betting delayed over DC Lottery, Intralot concerns Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Legal & compliancecenter_img Regions: US Washington DC 9th January 2019 | By contenteditor The launch of legal sports betting in Washington DC is set to be delayed after emergency legislation designed to fast-track its implementation was dropped.An emergency resolution that would have enabled the Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act to be implemented within months was withdrawn by DC City Council chairman Phil Mendelson on Tuesday.The new law will now proceed as standard legislation, meaning a public hearing will be held later this year. This hearing will examine matters such as whether the DC Lottery should be allowed to gift its sports betting technology supply contract to Intralot without running a procurement process.The Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act, as it stands, would hand an effective mobile wagering monopoly to the DC Lottery’s Intralot-powered platform. Opposition to “sole sourcing” within DC, however, has seemingly led to a delay.Backers of the DC Lottery-Intralot platform had pushed for quick resolution, suggesting it could take up to three years for a full tender process to be completed. DC City Council chief financial officer Jeff DeWitt, in a letter sent to lawmakers earlier this week, said his analysts estimate DC could lose $60.9m in sports wagering revenue between 2019 and 2022 while this process is carried out.Supporters of sports betting had hoped that it could launch before the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season in April. That now looks unlikely with a full hearing and possible procurement process to be scheduled.In a DC City Council meeting on Tuesday, amendments to licence fees proposed by Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie were voted through by councilmembers. Operators who do not partner with local Certified Business Enterprises (CBEs) will now pay twice as much in fees, with the top level licence potentially doubling to $500,000.The Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act, originally introduced by Councilmember Jack Evans in September, was passed by the DC City Council in December.It permits retail and digital sports betting in the capital, which has a population of almost 700,000 and teams in each of the major US sports leagues.While the DC Lottery app would be the only mobile betting platform allowed across almost all of DC, a number of designated facilities, such as the city’s major sports arenas, would be able to sign their own partners which would be able to offer their mobile services to customers within a two-block exclusivity zone, inside of which no competition is allowed.The four stadiums that can apply for Class A licences and offer betting are the 82,000-capacity FedEx Field, the 41,000-capacity Nationals Park, and Capital One Arena and Audi Field which can both hold just over 20,000 fans.Operators would be charged a 10% tax on gross wagering revenue, with Class A five-year licenses at the sports venues costing $250,000 for those partnered with CBEs. Class B sports betting licences, which do not allow mobile exclusivity, can be obtained by other premises at a cost of $50,000 for those partnered with CBEs and $100,000 for those without. More limited, two-year retail licenses cost $5,000 apiece. Between 40 and 60 other premises that currently offer lottery products – between 10% and 15% of the current total – are expected to apply for licences according to D.C. City Council estimates.Supplier licences are available for an up-front fee of $10,000 followed by an annual charge of $2,000.Image: Keith Allison Hearing could examine whether DC Lottery should be forced to launch tender process to select technology supplierlast_img read more

Ireland: Five things we learnt v England

first_imgAn 11-point loss, but there were causes for optimism at Twickenham for an injury-depleted Ireland side, with Italy and Scotland up next, they could finish with a flouris Top scorer: Conor Murray has dotted down for all of Ireland’s tries By Whiff of CorditeEngland ultimately overpowered Ireland to win by more than a score but the outlook for Ireland was weirdly positive. A measure of how far they’ve sunk in the last twelve months perhaps, or a realistic assessment given the high number of debutants and off-the charts injury problems? Here are our views on a day of mixed emotions.It was about as good as losing by 11 points to England gotThe French defeat felt somewhat empty, because it was obvious Ireland had lost to a malfunctioning and patently unfit side, but there was plenty of encouragement to take from this game; so much so that the overall sense was one of pride in the team in their courageous defence and refusal to buckle when England threatened to run away with it.Handful: Ireland didn’t have anyone who could stop a rampaging Billy Vunipola on SaturdayWe don’t have a player in the Billy Vunipola mould, few teams do, and he was more or less unplayable on the day. Yet, apart from Big Billy, there was little to choose between the sides.Fundamental concernsFor all the misplaced handwringing about Ireland’s style of play and lack of offloads, the biggest problem has in fact been a decline in the basics which proved the building blocks of their success in the last two years. The much-fabled hyper-efficient rucking went down the toilette against France, while Ireland’s ability to reclaim high kicks has disappeared, and they haven’t aerially dominated any team in this campaign.Set-piece concerns: The lineout, once a strength, has been misfiring in this Six NationsThe would-be catchers have knocked on a huge amount of contestables. The other weak suit this year has been the lineout, and Ireland have too often failed to secure their ball from precious lineouts in the opposition 22. It’s an expensive habit. Ireland’s defence also looks oddly passive, constantly on the back foot once the ball is thrown wide. They repeatedly gave up easy metres here.Ver Kidz to the Fore Much of the encouragement comes from the performances of the three debutants, in particular the explosive impact of Connacht second-row Ultan Dillane. You wait and you wait for a tackle-breaking ball-carrying strongman in the second row and then two come along in the space of a couple of years.Off to a flier: Josh Van der Flier impressed on his debut at TwickenhamJosh Van der Flier’s one-two-one link-up with him to almost secure a try hinted that he may yet be the – Irish Rugby Commentariat Moment coming up – Genuine Openside™ that we’ve been looking for since… ever. Stuart McCloskey mixed things up a bit, and earned some critique from Joe Schmidt, but he showed some of his barnstorming capabilities in the wide channels, and is worth another go in the remaining matches.Too much rugby?Ireland don’t play any rugby; so goes the popular thinking in pubs and opinion pieces, but if anything they were guilty of playing too much rugby here, especially in their own half. However, early in the second half they did show an ability to make metres by going wide. Johhny Sexton showed that class is permanent by producing a vintage display – as well as nailing his kicks superbly – and pulled the strings expertly.In the clear: Johnny Sexton put in a vintage performance against England making several line-breaksConor Murray had another fine match and is Ireland’s top – okay, only – try scorer of the tournament. We can only hope that the decision to keep the pill and try to find space will reap greater rewards against Scotland and Italy, who are defensively less efficient than England.Form worriesRob Kearney was a little improved but has been way off his best for some time. Andrew Trimble had an alarmingly poor game, dropping balls and missing tackles. He is starting to look slow for a test wing.All wrapped up: Rob Kearney hasn’t exerted the influence he can have for a whileAnd while Cian Healy is only returning from injury, his lack of any sort of form and dire scrummaging performances have been the story of his season. Does it do him any good to be rushed back into this sort of arena. History has shown us that test rugby is no place to try and play into form. Alternatives may well be worth a look.center_img For the latest Rugby World magazine subscription offers, click here. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

The realized work for the Núñez family consisted of the transformation of an old apartment into a contemporary urban home.Save this picture!© Cristobal PalmaThe project resumes four punctual operations that try to set a relation between the existent organization and the new function. The first one is the inversion of the separate uses of the two floors of the house. With the addition of a bathroom and a closet in place of the former living room, the goal of placing all bedrooms on first floor is achieved. Which, in turn, liberates the upper floor and its terrace for a functional common space for the whole family. The second intervention consists of occupation of half of the terrace with a light construction, which integrates the space with the kitchen, dining area, and living room. The rooftop of this space is used to create an extension that leads to the third operation: convertion of the water tank into an open-air swimming pool. Finally, a shadow device incorporates to the project the irregularity of the walls from neighboring buildings, trapping a great volume of air and creating an specific atmosphere for the new house.Save this picture!© Cristobal PalmaProject gallerySee allShow lessCenter for the Promotion of Science / Dürig AGArticlesAD Round Up: Interiors Part VIArticles Share 2009 ArchDaily Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/110142/nunez-house-adamo-faiden Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAdamo FaidenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuenos AiresHousesRefurbishmentArgentinaPublished on February 09, 2011Cite: “Nuñez House / Adamo Faiden” 09 Feb 2011.

Website editor who referred to Al Qaeda video charged with terrorism

Anouzla is paying a high price for his independence, his readiness to speak freely and his commitment to media freedom.”The editor of the Arabic-language version of the news website Lakome, Anouzla was brought before an investigating judge in Rabat yesterday after a week in police custody in Casablanca, and was charged with “material assistance” to a terrorist group, “defending terrorism” and “inciting the execution of terrorist acts.” He was taken to Salé detention centre, near Rabat, after the hearing.“He has been officially charged and is in pre-trial detention,” Anouzla’s lawyer, Omar Benjelloun, told Reporters Without Borders, adding that the investigating judge now has up to five months to conduct his investigation.After Anouzla was arrested in Rabat on 17 September, the prosecutor-general said his arrest was “as a result of the dissemination of an AQIM video inciting others to commit terrorism acts.”In fact, Anouzla posted an article reporting that AQIM had posted a 40-minute propaganda video on the Al-Andalus site that was solely about Morocco. Entitled “Morocco: kingdom of corruption and despotism,” the video attacked the monarchy and called for Jihad in Morocco, Anouzla’s article explained.The link in his article was actually a link to the blog of Ignacio Cembrero, a journalist with the Spanish daily El Pais, who had posted a link to the video in his blog. The Moroccan justice ministry announced on 17 September that it was planning to bring a complaint in Madrid against El Pais for publishing the video. But more than a week has gone by with no sign of the announced complaint. to go further News RSF_en April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

It is our goal to ensure that our teachers are fairly compensated; however, the District cannot afford the proposal offered by the United Teachers of Pasadena (UTP) at the October 9, 2015, bargaining session. With regard to salary negotiations, UTP representatives stated, “We don’t see the gap narrowing.” The District concurs with UTP that we are in a “deadlock.” The proposal put forward by UTP would slide the District into financial insolvency.The District is committed to working to improve our fiscal situation by being more efficient in our overall operations and locating cost savings where possible. Our goal is to improve compensation for our teachers while also providing more resources at the school site level for our students.UTP and the District have not been able to make progress in negotiations, even after holding a nearly 12-hour marathon bargaining session in late May. Given the number of bargaining sessions since March 2015, the District is declaring impasse and will seek a third party mediator to assist us in making progress toward an agreement. The District is in the process of filing formal impasse declaration papers with the California State Public Employee Relations Board.The District remains committed to continuing negotiations with UTP using a third party mediator in a transparent and honest manner. The education of our students is our top priority and we must do this in partnership with our excellent teachers.”Information about the PUSD negotiations is posted online at www.pusd.us/pages/PasadenaUSD/AboutUs/Negotiations.Stay connected to the Pasadena Unified School District!

By the age of 16, he was sent to prison for the first time, a pattern that he repeated up until he was 21.Thinking back, he believes he was only getting in trouble to get away from the beatings by his father whom he remembers as a “bully”.John was also self-harming at this point in his life.Things improved for a few years when he fell in love and got married. Sadly, he again fell back into his old ways and was back in prison by 27 and stayed behind bars until he was 35.On his release, he approached homeless services for the first time but admits that he didn’t really trust them.“I used to go from one place to another and back to the streets. I was drinking heavily then. Some people wouldn’t even look at you,” he recalls.Life finally started to get better for John a couple of years ago after approaching Novas Initiatives, the largest provider of homeless services in the Mid-West region.“They gave me a place at McGarry House and this was the first time that someone told me that I didn’t have a drink problem and that something might be wrong inside my head instead. I’d never heard this before.”Last November, John took up residence at the newly developed Brother Stephen Russell House soon after his wife died of a heroin overdose.The centre, operated by Novas Initiatives on Mulgrave Street, provides 33 units of long-term supported housing for men and women. One of the city’s oldest homeless services, it was completely rebuilt and redesigned with its former grey dormitory style accommodation replaced with bright single, en-suite rooms and clustered communal living areas.While grieving over the death of his wife, John slowly came to the realisation that he at long last had a place to call home.He hasn’t touched a drink in over four months and now volunteers in the kitchen at Brother Russell House, something he says that gives him great pleasure. He has also worked on the PALLS project building garden furniture for the house.He is now convinced that he would have ended up in the graveyard next door if it weren’t for Novas.“I can come and go as I please and I always have a bed to come back to. My room is my sanctuary. It has a door that I can lock and that is the most important thing for me. I don’t live in a homeless centre and when I walk out the gate I hold my head up high.“It is not an institution, it is a family and home. I know I have mental health problems but I can manage them here. The staff here treats me as if I am the same as them. Life has never been better.” Email WhatsApplast_img read more
