Sirius is set to beat its $40m target with both a share placing with institutional investors and a debt agreement, a person close to the company said yesterday. The group is expected to announce the results of the share placing later this week, before resuming its AIM listing. Sirius froze its shares in February to work on a $2m takeover of the Ke field from a Nigerian company, Del Sigma Petroleum. The firm said the rest of the cash would be spent on developing the field in the Niger delta. Under the terms of the deal, Sirius will receive a net preferential cash flow of 78 per cent from revenues once oil is produced, until full recovery of its investment. After this the company will receive 40 per cent. Sirius has signed four joint venture agreements with local companies, who will work with Chevon, Shell and Mobil to develop oil deposits in the region. Emerging markets investment banks Renaissance Capital and Strand Hanson are working on the equity raise with Sirius, which was set up in 2009 with the aim of investing in Nigerian oil assets. Shares in the company froze in February at 9p, valuing the company at £46.87m.

Although the firm’s Irish exposure demands some caution, its other numbers were reasonably solid and in line with expectations.And it showed spritely progress on integrating its recently acquired French business, keeping it far from its last tango in Paris.Analysts were generally positive about the results, with Moody’s chief executive Paul Moody saying that Britvic’s experience was not unusual for a company affected by the sovereign crisis. The price could see a prolonged dip due to raw materials inflation impacting the bottom line, but overall, the figures show an ability to grow despite a difficult environment, with overall pre-tax profit growth of 21.5 per cent. Investors should keep a wary eye on progress in Ireland and play the price carefully, but any sharp selling should nonetheless represent a good buying opportunity. whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Spanish police find little evidence of underage gambling

first_img7th October 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Regions: Europe Southern Europe Spain AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter A national investigation by the Spanish police found little evidence of underage gambling across the country’s licensed gambling premises. La Policía Nacional’s Operation Arcade, in which more 3,000 spot inspections of almost 1,900 gaming halls throughout Spain were carried out over a 48-hour period, uncovered only 28 cases of minors gambling. Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance People Sports betting Slots A national investigation by the Spanish police found little evidence of underage gambling across the country’s licensed gambling premises.La Policía Nacional’s Operation Arcade, in which more 3,000 spot inspections of almost 1,900 gaming halls throughout Spain were carried out over a 48-hour period, uncovered only 28 cases of minors gambling.The operation took place across all regions of the country aside from the Basque Country, and covered more than half of all licensed gaming premises in the country.The National Police identifies only 28 minors in the 3,000 visits made to almost 1,900 game rooms throughout Spain, with some inspected more than once.
With only a small number of instances of underage gambling uncovered, Spanish operator association Consejo Empresarial del Juego (CEJUEGO) claimed that this showed press reports of widespread underage play were off the mark.“This operation has been quite exhaustive, focusing on verifying the actual incidence of minors in accessing in-person gambling services,” CEJUEGO director general Alejandro Landaluce said. “The resulting data reaffirms our conviction that, although there is room for improvement in technological systems used to control access [to gambling venues], there is no real problem regarding minors entering gaming halls.”Landaluce went on to attack “unjustified” media reports on underage gambling, suggesting that Operation Arcade had been portrayed as a crackdown on a widespread problem in the country. Recent reports in the Spanish press have suggested that the Spain has the highest rate of teenage gambling addiction in Europe.“As CEJUEGO has been saying, it is totally false that minors are [regularly] accessing these premises,” he explained. “On the contrary, the cases detected are absolutely minimal.“These official and public studies already confirmed this fact, and now the results of Operation Arcade reaffirm it,” he added.CEJUEGO noted that while underage gambling is almost non-existent in Spain’s retail gaming market, it was looking at new ways to stamp out the problem entirely. This will see it utilise technology to better verify player identities, as well as implementing new restrictions across all sub-sectors and channels.The results of the operation come as CEJUEGO steps up efforts to improve the image of Spain’s gambling industry. This has already seen it publish a survey in June, which claimed that around 92% of the country’s population saw gambling as an acceptable form of leisure activity.This is being conducted against the threat of tighter restrictions on gambling operators, such as advertising controls that would see the industry treated in a similar way to the tobacco sector.Over the weekend, Spanish media also reported on public protests against the proliferation of gambling in the country.

Foto de la Cruz Roja de Ozarks.[Episcopal News Service] Para los que viven en lo que se conoce como el Corredor de los Tornados, esta época del año es la temporada de esos fenómenos atmosféricos. En días calientes y húmedos, la gente vive con la vista puesta en el cielo, observando las nubes, y muchas comunidades han pasado por la desoladora destrucción de un tornado y han resuelto reconstruir con mayor solidez.Mientras en Moore, Oklahoma, comienzan a recoger los fragmentos después del enorme tornado del 20 de mayo, un pueblo a 362 kilómetros al norte en el [mismo] corredor está aún reponiéndose dos años después de uno de los tornados más letales en la historia de Estados Unidos.Un EF-5 (tornado de fuerza 5 en la Escala Ampliada de Fujita) deshizo a Joplin, Misurí, el 22 de mayo de 2011, con un saldo de 161 personas muertas y más de 1.000 lesionadas. En la actualidad, episcopales de todo el estado y de más lejos están ayudando a reconstruir la ciudad.En un ejemplo de ello, la iglesia episcopal de San Felipe [St. Philip’s] en Joplin, la iglesia de La Gracia [Grace] en el vecino Carthage y la iglesia de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Nevada, a unos 100 kilómetros al norte, junto con las diócesis de Misurí Occidental y Misurí, han liderado el empeño de construir un albergue para que una agencia de servicio social de Joplin lo use para familias que mudan de sus hogares en situaciones de violencia doméstica y drogadicción.Esperan entregar el albergue a Lafayette House el 20 de julio.El tornado de EF-5 que azotó Joplin, Misurí, el 22 de mayo de 2011, dejó estos árboles desnudos al lado este de la secundaria del lugar, donde recogen escombros de la escuela seriamente dañada. Foto de John Daves/Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército de EE.UU., Distrito de Kansas City.El tornado de Joplin dañó o destruyó millares de viviendas y negocios. Una casita que Lafayette House usaba para albergar a mujeres solteras necesitadas de un hogar transicional recibió muchos daños, pero pudo ser reparado, según contó el Muy Rdo. Rev. Steve Wilson, rector de La Gracia.Sin embargo, la agencia hacía mucho tiempo que necesitaba un lugar para familias, y “resultaba muy claro que una de las inevitables secuelas sociales ‘después de un enorme desastre como éste’ era un aumento substancial de la violencia doméstica”, dijo Wilson. En consecuencia, la necesidad de tal albergue sólo podía aumentar.Además, un gran porcentaje de las viviendas destruidas por la tormenta eran propiedades en alquiler para personas de muy bajos ingresos, agregó. La gente que vivía en esas casas ya tenía dificultades. En lo que Wise llamó la atmósfera “casi frenética de una ciudad en desarrollo”, que es el Joplin actual, la propiedad para alquileres a personas de bajos ingresos no está siendo reemplazada.“La carga económica que impuso el tornado sucede que ha ido a caer sobre las personas de este pueblo que probablemente tenían menos recursos propios para enfrentarse a sus secuelas y ese es otro factor en la decisión de la diócesis de llevar a cabo este proyecto en particular”, dijo Lyon. “Era casi una certeza que las personas a quienes les prestaría servicios serían aquellas que tenían menos recursos propios que aportar que lo que otras podrían tener”.Añádale a eso el trauma psicológico y espiritual de saber que en cuestión de 20 minutos el tornado mató a 161 personas en un condado cuya población es de unos 100.000 habitantes. “Eso es un impacto masivo”, agregó Wise.El Rdo. Frank Sierra, rector de San Felipe, en Joplin, dijo que Lafayette House ha visto un aumento de clientes, de un 75 a un 85 por ciento, desde el tornado.El sitio para la nueva casa está a dos cuadras del área donde el tornado causó los daños más graves, lo que Wilson llamó “la zona de devastación”.Según una encuesta de la tormenta dada a conocer por la oficina del Servicio Meteorológico Nacional en Springfield, Misurí, el tornado, clasificado como un EF-5, viajó 35,5 kms. sobre el terreno. Su trayecto de unos 10 kilómetros dentro de la ciudad de Joplin fue, por amplio margen, el más intenso y devastador”, escribió Bill Davis, meteorólogo a cargo de la oficina de Springfield.Numerosas viviendas y negocios bien construidos fueron “barridos de sus cimientos, triturados o aplanados en el lugar, o volados por los aires y amontonados sobre otros escombros y estructuras destruidas”, dijo.Así es como se veía Rose Cottage —un hogar de transición para mujeres solteras y sus familias que escapaban de situaciones de violencia doméstica y de drogadicción— en las primeras etapas de su construcción. Foto de Melinda Wilson.En total, 6.954 casas fueron destruidas, 359 sufrieron daños graves y 516, daños menores. “La estructura de madera de la mayoría de las casas se desintegró en pequeños pedazos”, según el informe de Davis. “Esto produjo miles de proyectiles mortales”.Casi todos los edificios comerciales en una extensión de seis cuadras de la calle Central [Main Street] quedaron seriamente averiados o destruidos, como lo fueron varios almacenes de grandes superficies en una franja comercial del este de Joplin. La escuela secundaria y el centro médico también quedaron destruidos.Más de 15.000 vehículos de diversos tamaños y pesos, incluidos autobuses, remolques de tractores y furgonetas fueron lanzados a más de 300 metros, a varias cuadras de distancia, algunos de los cuales quedaron aplastados y enrollados  y del todo irreconocibles, explicó Davis, añadiendo que algunos propietarios nunca encontraron sus vehículos.“Algunos vehículos fueron comprimidos y enrollados en torno a los pocos árboles que quedaron en pie, mientras otros se convirtieron en bolas.  Las armaduras de acero centrales de los techos se plegaron como si fueran de papel, y las principales vigas de apoyo quedaron torcidas o curvadas”, proseguía el informe. “Partes de los árboles que quedaron en pie estaban descortezados y desnudos”.La tormenta arrancó el asfalto del piso de un estacionamiento desde la base y lanzó los fragmentos, en algunos casos, a varias calles de distancia. Arrancó también los contenes de estacionamiento hechos de concreto, que pesaban de 90 a 140 kgs. y que estaban fijos al suelo con varillas de acero, y los lanzó a 20 y 40 metros de distancia.“Hubo también algunas cosas interesantes, tales como una silla de madera que quedó empotrada con las cuatro patas en un muro exterior de madera y estuco, y una manguera de goma que atravesó un árbol”, apuntó David.La Rda. Lauren Lyon, secretaria de la Diócesis de Misurí Occidental, dijo que la devastación era “increíble”.“Realmente te infunde un respeto por las fuerzas de la naturaleza y todo el concepto de ‘esta frágil tierra, nuestro hogar insular’, como dice el Libro de Oración; que todo el poder que somos capaces de reunir para someter el mundo natural a nuestra voluntad con frecuencia no se equipara a las fuerzas de la naturaleza”, subrayó.Dieciséis familias de San Felipe fueron afectadas por el tornado, según Sierra. Doce de ellas perdieron sus hogares y cuatro sus negocios. Los hogares de otros diez feligreses sufrieron daños menores.“Todo el mundo está de regreso a casas adecuadas y nos alegramos de eso”, dijo Sierra, añadiendo que algunas personas sólo habían vuelto a sus hogares recientemente.Un grupo de episcopales ayuda a pintar el interior de Rose Cottage. Foto de Peggy RalstonPoco después de la tormenta, muchas personas de toda la diócesis y de la Iglesia quisieron ayudar y Lyon contó que se les dijo que lo mejor serían las donaciones monetarias, porque podrían aplicarse a proyectos específicos o según fueran apareciendo las necesidades.Los donantes contribuyeron con algo más de $100.000 en respuesta al llamado de la diócesis, según dijo Lyon.“Somos afortunados por el apoyo que la Iglesia [en su sentido denominacional] nos ha dado”, dijo Sierra.Aproximadamente una semana después del tornado, el clero y la feligresía de las tres congregaciones episcopales se reunieron con algunos miembros del liderazgo diocesano para empezar a decidir “lo que pensábamos que podíamos hacer de utilidad, tanto inmediatamente como a largo plazo”, según explicó Wilson.Entre las ideas que se barajaron: ventas de garaje donde todos los objetos fuesen gratuitos, conectar la agencia con un vivero forestal extinto que tenía árboles para donar dirigir un programa para ayudar a replantar árboles en Joplin y encontrar una manera de ayudar con lo que era una intensa crisis de vivienda en la ciudad.Por ese tiempo, muchas agencias con experiencia en la construcción de viviendas, tales como Hábitat para la Humanidad, ya estaban respondiendo. “Estaban sobre el terreno haciendo planos y no queríamos tratar de competir con ellos, particularmente porque no contamos con los recursos para intentar tal cosa”, señaló Wise.Fue durante esa conversación que Katie Platt, una feligresa de Grace que trabajaba como consejera en Lafayette House, sugirió que un hogar transicional significaría “una solución más a largo plazo para más familias”.El terreno ya estaba disponible y el Rdo. Ted Estes, de Todos los Santos, que dice ser un “muchacho del pueblo”, negoció la compra de la propiedad —para lo que se llamará Rose Cottage— con James Herron, el nieto de los dueños del Rose’s Market. El mercado se encontraba enfrente de una escuela que es ahora Lafayette House. Según Wise, los estudiantes solían cruzar la calle para ir a la tienda a comprar caramelos.Estes dijo que cuando le explicó al propietario que los episcopales querían abrir un albergue para víctimas de violencia doméstica en la localidad, Herron “gentilmente nos vendió la propiedad a menos precio”. Una donación de la Diócesis de Misurí ayudó a la compra, señaló Estes.Luego vino un largo proceso de construcción, entre cuyas dificultades se incluía encontrar un contratista que estuviera disponible y encontrar uno que pudiera lidiar con el papeleo que conllevaba la constante actualización de los códigos locales de edificación.Jeff Neely, contratista episcopal radicado en Carthage, trazó gratuitamente los planos de Rose Cottage. La casa de tres dormitorios y dos baños cuenta con un “cuarto de seguridad” de hormigón vaciado a nivel del suelo concebido para proporcionar refugio en caso de tornados.Según dijo Lyon, la construcción de la casa costó aproximadamente los $100.000 que donó la Diócesis de Misurí Occidental, y las Mujeres Episcopales (ECW, por su sigla en inglés) de la diócesis han estado haciendo acopio de algunos artículos, tales como sábanas y toallas, platos, ollas y sartenes, así como pequeños aparatos electrodomésticos. ECW también está solicitando a las congregaciones de la diócesis que amueblen la casa, dijo Wise. Algunos miembros de las parroquias hay ayudado a pintar el interior, y también se planea plantar un jardín —incluidas rosas para el Rose Cottage.ECW ha tomado Rose Cottage como un proyecto permanente, de manera que las familias que pasen tiempo allí puedan llevarse algunos artículos de uso doméstico cuando se muden a sus propias casas, según explicó Estes. Han abierto un registro en una tienda local, de manera que los donantes puedan ayudar a comprar reemplazos para las próximas familias, agregó.Todos los que participan [de este proyecto] dijeron que sería un momento de júbilo cuando Rose Cottage se convierta oficialmente en parte de Lafayette House el 20 de julio, aunque ha sido un proceso frustrante de cierta manera porque la gente quería haber concluido algo útil mucho antes que dos años después del tornado.“Sí entendemos el porqué y sí queremos lograr que esto se haga bien, pero ha habido alguna frustración en que Joplin está volviendo en sí, pero no está recuperada todavía”, dijo Wise.Lyon dijo que los participantes han aprendido que “el proceso de recuperación y reconstrucción es lento y exige una tremenda cantidad de fe y de compromiso con un propósito. Reconstruir después de una desgracia de esas proporciones sencillamente no puede ocurrir de la noche a la mañana, y a las personas les lleva tiempo recuperarse de eso; a las comunidades también les lleva tiempo”.Dos años después, la recuperación todavía no es completa. Wise, que llama a Joplin “mi gran ciudad”, dijo que cuando el va de compras o sale a comer, su impresión es que “que todo el pueblo está deprimido, como si la ciudad entera estuviera en un estado permanente de síndrome postraumático”.No ayuda el que el tornado no fuera en absoluto un evento inusual. Intensas tormentas se produjeron en la zona durante el fin de semana del 18 y 19 de mayo de este año y el Servicio Meteorológico Nacional emitió una alerta de tornado el 20 de mayo para 26 condados de Misurí, incluido el de Joplin. Esa es la manera de vivir en esta época del año en el Corredor de los Tornados.Pero, Sierra agregó que “si vuelve a suceder, lidiaremos con eso. Dios estará con nosotros. Él siempre ha estado con nosotros a través de este tiempo”.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

(AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki) Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks ReddIt What to watch during quarantine printBefore matching up with the Sooners in Norman three weeks ago, TCU’s football team was involved in a pre-game incident with polarizing Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield.Big games typically mean big recruiting weekends, and the Oklahoma game was no exception. With a large recruiting presence on the sideline, Patterson and the Frogs had to run through the Oklahoma warmup session to get to the field.As the Frogs jogged across the field, Mayfield pegged Horned Frog safety Niko Small in the head. Small missed the next two games against Texas Tech and Baylor with a concussion. It’s unclear whether the hit caused the concussion.Head coach of the Sooners Lincoln Riley blamed TCU and Patterson for the incident, saying the team prompted the hit by running through the stretch line. Patterson disagreed and defended his team following the situation.“We don’t act that way,” Patterson said. “We won’t ever, and we’ve had plenty of teams try to get us to do it. That’s not the way we act.”Patterson refused to blame his team, instead shifting the guilt on Mayfield as well as Oklahoma’s inability to control their own sidelines and some of Oklahoma’s history with Texas Tech.“You can’t say we are in the wrong because [it] was okay to let a quarterback throw the ball and hit a guy in the head that hasn’t played for two weeks,” Patterson said.Riley and Mayfield both began their careers with Texas Tech, a place that– according to Patterson– praises incidents like this.“This was common practice,” Patterson said. “There was a pretty well-known quarterback at Texas Tech who threw a ball and hit a player from A&M in the head, and they all thought it was funny.”Patterson said he won’t let the Big 12 title rematch be about the exchange.“If they want to bring it out in the open, they can do it,” Patterson said. “They’re saying we were the ones trying to cause all the problems, I beg to differ.”Kickoff for TCU and Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game is set for 11:30 a.m. Saturday at AT&T Stadium.

Oligarch uses “right to privacy” to censor Russian media

first_imgNews Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Credit: Olga Maltseva / AFP RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on Russia Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing February 14, 2018 – Updated on February 16, 2018 Oligarch uses “right to privacy” to censor Russian media Читать на русском / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a Russian court decision ordering websites to immediately remove photos and videos of a meeting between leading Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Prikhodko on the grounds that they constitute a “violation of privacy.” RSF regards the order as blatant act of censorship.Moving quickly on 9 February, the day after the court’s decision, Russia’s telecommunication surveillance agency, Roskomnadzor, ordered no fewer than seven online media outlets to take down the photos and videos illustrating articles about the supposedly “informal negotiations” between Prikhodko and Deripaska.Opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was responsible for drawing attention to the photos and videos when he reposted them as part of an online video report, said their publication was in the public interest but the two influential public figures involved insisted that they invaded their privacy.The media outlets had to respond to a court decision that had not yet been published and to which they could not get access. They complied because they were under threat of being blocked. But some, such as Mediazona, filed a court appeal against the censorship.On 10 February, Roskomnadzor said it had complied with an order issued by a court in Ust-Labinsk, the district in the far south of Russia that is Deripaska’s base. The independent news website The Bell said it was the first time that such urgent measures have been taken in Russia to defend privacy.Going to the source of the content, the court also ordered the blocking of 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos. As Russian Internet service providers still lack the technical ability to restrict access to specific web pages, Instagram and YouTube risk being blocked in their entirety within Russia if the offending content is not removed by this evening.“We urge the Russian authorities to lift these disproportionate measures, which prevent information from circulating freely,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The European Convention on Human Rights and related court rulings clearly establish that public figures cannot claim the same privacy rights as ordinary citizens.”The scandal erupted on 8 February when Navalny, who is well known for his anti-corruption investigations, reported that Prikhodko was seen on Deripaska’s yacht off the Norwegian coast in August 2016. His claim was based on publicly availably content including the photos and videos posted on Instagram by a female escort who was with them on the yacht and who has related her experiences in a book. Reposted on YouTube the same day, Navalny’s video account has already been viewed more than 4 million times. Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
