WoSome investors want banks to buy back the bonds.Deutsche said it sees no material impact on profit from legal challenges over US mortgage foreclosure practices because it does not have a US mortgage loan servicing business. The attorney general for all 50 US states is investigating whether banks that foreclosed on thousands of bad loans failed to review documents properly or submitted false information to evict delinquent borrowers.

Italy iGaming Dashboard – February 2019

first_img12th February 2019 | By Joanne Christie Italy iGaming Dashboard – February 2019 After ending last year on a low, the Italian igaming market rebounded sharply in January thanks largely to the recovery of the sports betting vertical.Total igaming revenue rose to €148.3 in January, an 11% rise on December and a 6.8% year-on-year increase.After falling dramatically in December – revenues fell 27.7% on a month-on-month basis and an enormous 43.4% on the same month the previous year –  online sports betting rose 23.4% on a month-on-month basis, although it was still slightly down on the first month of 2018.Bet365 extended its lead over PlanetWin365 in the vertical, taking 17.9% of the market, with the second-placed operator seeing its share fall to 12.8%, a significant drop from the previous month’s 14.8%.The market leader lost some market share in the combined online and retail markets, however, a trend that is likely to accelerate once operators lose the ability to advertise and online-only operators struggle to maintain visibility against those with physical outlets.Interestingly, PokerStars made its first appearance in the wagering Top 10, taking 2.1% of the market to land in tenth position.In terms of market share as a whole, however, sports betting is still trailing casino, with the former at 39.15% and the latter at 48.50%. While up only a modest 2% on December, casino enjoyed its best month yet in January, with GGR of €71.9m.PokerStars maintained its leading position in the vertical, though with a slightly lower 10.59% compared with December’s 11.12%. Lottomatica and Sisal, meanwhile, saw a slight increase in their shares in second and third place, respectively.Italy’s poker market provided some rare good news last month, with a 21.9% rise in tournament GGR and a 7% rise in cash GGR. PokerStars remained well in front of its nearest competitors in both areas, taking 63.37% of the tournament market and 39.51% of the cash market.All data and figures are processed by leading European corporate advisory firm Ficom Leisure, a specialist in all segments of the betting and gaming sector.Ficom Leisure also provides monthly figures on the New Jersey online market in the New Jersey iGaming Dashboard. It also provides quarterly figures on the Spanish online market in the Spain iGaming Dashboard and on the Danish online market in the Denmark iGaming Dashboard.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Investing £3k in the FTSE 100 today might not deliver strong returns in the short term. The world economy is facing extremely challenging conditions that could cause stocks to languish for some time.However, over the long run, the FTSE 100 is likely to recover from its crash and go on to post new highs — as it has following each of its previous downturns.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…With that in mind, here are three cheap FTSE 100 stocks that appear too cheap to pass up after the market’s recent slump.FTSE 100 income championBHP (LSE: BHP) is one of the few FTSE 100 companies that haven’t cut their dividends this year. This could be because the business continues to experience strong demand for its output.Coronavirus has also had a relatively limited impact on the group’s operations. It has continued to maintain production at most of its sites. While there has been some limited disruption, management expects to hit the company’s initial production targets for the year.Despite this positive outlook, shares in the miner have fallen by 21% this year. As such, the stock appears to offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. It’s trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 10. That’s around 30% cheaper than its long-term average. It also supports a dividend yield of 6.8%.These numbers suggest this FTSE 100 dividend champion could deliver a more substantial share price performance than its peers over the next few years.Anglo AmericanAnother global FTSE 100 champion that could have the potential to generate robust returns in the years ahead is Anglo American (LSE: AAL).The coronavirus crisis has significantly impacted Anglo. In response, the company has acted quickly to cut capital spending and operating expenses. These initiatives should help the business save several billion dollars over the next year. On top of these initiatives, the group has $14.5bn of liquidity to help see it through the crisis.Anglo has also said it remains committed to its dividend for the time being. This suggests its yield of 5.6% is safe for the time being.The above implies this FTSE 100 company may be in a stronger position to survive severe operating conditions over the short term. Therefore, after falling 35% year-to-date, the shares appear to offer good value as well as the potential for large profits over the long run.Taylor WimpeyTaylor Wimpey (LSE: TW) might not have the international diversification offered by the companies above, but this FTSE 100 dividend champion seems to have a bright future.While the coronavirus crisis has thrown a cloud of uncertainty over the UK housing market in the short term, in the long run, it’s clear the market still remains structurally undersupplied.This suggests homebuilders should prosper over the long run. Ultra-low interest rates and government initiatives to spur home buying may also encourage house price growth.With that in mind, Taylor looks like it could be an excellent investment in a booming sector. The company may continue to face continued uncertainty in the short run, but over the next few years, demand for homes should only grow. That would be great news for the firm’s sales and bottom line.Now could be a great time to take advantage of the market’s short-term thinking and snap up a share in the business. £3k to invest?

Foto: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Cárdenas, Cuba] “Si no somos parte de la solución, somos parte del problema”, dice el cartel a la entrada del Centro de Reflexión y Diálogo aquí. Es un lema que resuena en el ministerio del centro, con programas de compromiso con la comunidad y dirigidos al desarrollo humano y comunitario.El centro y su metodología “sirve como un buen modelo para las iglesias a través de América Latina”, dijo el obispo Julio César Holguín de República Dominicana, y agregó que a través de sus programas y programas de compromiso con la comunidad, el centro trabaja en la formación, tanto a nivel individual como comunitario. Holguín dirigió una pequeña delegación a Cuba del 18 de febrero  hasta el 25 de febrero, para asistir al  Sínodo General  de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba en la Habana. La visita del  20 de febrero al centro, que fue fundada hace más de 20 años, fue una oportunidad para presenciar y aprender sobre el movimiento ecuménico de Cuba.Desde un punto de vista cristiano inclusive, el centro tiene como objetivo contribuir al sentido de la existencia humana, promover una concepción holística de la vida y la salud, promover la dignidad humana, y desarrollar una cultura de paz y participación de la comunidad, con énfasis en los pobres, los débiles y las personas marginadas de la sociedad, de acuerdo con su misión.“Yo estaba muy impresionado por la interacción, la conexión entre la reflexión y la práctica”, dijo el obispo Todd Ousley de la Diócesis de Michigan del este, y agregó que su enfoque a los programas y procesos se basa en la teología.El propósito del centro es promover el diálogo interreligioso centrado en la integración social a nivel comunitario, con cuatro objetivos para ese fin:fomentar el reconocimiento de la dignidad humana, inspirado en las verdades del Evangelio;animar el procesos de reconciliación, paz y desarrollo de valores humano;estimular la participación de la comunidad y el desarrollo del individual; ypromover servicios para las personas necesitadas, enfermas y sufridas.Sobre este último, cuatro de los empleados del centro – dos mujeres y dos hombres – proporcionan comidas, higiene básica, lavandería y otros servicios de cinco días a la semana a 120 personas de edad avanzada, y cuidados a personas infectadas con el VIH.“Es un ministerio difícil”, dijo Rita García Morris, subdirectora del centro. “La gente es muy pobre, y viven en una habitación sin un baño”.Además del programa de cuidado de los ancianos, el centro cuenta con una biblioteca y centro de informática, ofrece talleres de manualidades para niños y ancianos, programas culturales para personas de todas las edades, grupos de debate sobre temas que van desde la teología y derechos humanos a la violencia doméstica, además de servir como un lugar de culto.“[Es] muy impresionante – mente, cuerpo, espíritu, uno lo está haciendo todo”, dijo Ousley durante un recorrido por el centro.En el futuro, el centro espera proporcionar un hogar de cuidado de ancianos, donde las personas a quienes sirven puedan vivir y recibir cuidados diarios, y también un refugio para las víctimas de la violencia doméstica, otra población al cual el centro sirve en su ministerio de alcance.Se trata de “sueños”, dijo García Morris. “Los sueños son para la gente con fe”.Ubicado en una antigua fábrica, el centro comenzó a funcionar a principios de 1990, pero no fue hasta 2011 que el gobierno cubano le concedió al centro licencia oficial.Además de sus ministerios de alcance local, el centro acoge grupos nacionales e internacionales de jóvenes y adultos, con capacidad para entre 80 y 90 personas en sus 28 habitaciones. El personal solicita que las reservas se harán tres o cuatro meses con anticipación para coordinar las visas religiosas necesarias.El centro también ofrece una amplia variedad de publicaciones. Holguín se desempeñó como obispo interino de la iglesia episcopal de Cuba desde el 2003 hasta el 2004, y al mismo tiempo sirvió en la República Dominicana. Además de Ousley, Holgún estuvo acompañado por el Rdo. Emilio Martin, quien es cubano, y sirvió en el consejo de la junta de directores cuando fue sacerdote de la iglesia episcopal de San Francisco de Asís en Cárdenas; Bill Kunkle, director ejecutivo del Grupo de Desarrollo Dominicano; y David Morrow, presidente de la junta directiva de la DDG.La junta de directiva de DDG, en la que Ousley también se desempeña, se reunió la semana pasada en Santo Domingo, República Dominicana, para su reunión anual del consejo después de la convención diocesana anual.– Lynette Wilson es una editora/reportera para Episcopal News Service.

Henshaws’ website wins at Visionary Design Awards

first_img Tagged with: Awards Howard Lake | 6 December 2004 | News Henshaws’ website wins at Visionary Design Awards The NLB estimates that less than a third of all websites are currently accessible to visually impaired people who use technologies such as magnification, text to speech, and refreshable Braille in order to access web-based services. Manchester based charity, Henshaws Society for Blind People, which supports blind and visually impaired people across the north of England, has won the Visual Impairment category at the Visionary Design Awards.The Awards are part of an ongoing campaign by the National Library for the Blind (NLB) to encourage website publishers and designers to consider access technology when designing sites. The Henshaws site was designed by London-based Poptel Technology, specialists in accessible web design. Judges felt that accessibility was integral to the design of the new site, and commended the extent to which the website meets the needs of those using access technologies.

Media coverage of election campaign ignores political debates and opposition

first_img Reporters Without Borders continues to be dissatisfied with the Belarusian media’s coverage of the campaign for Sunday’s parliamentary elections after seeing the report of the monitoring conducted by the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation, between 5 and 20 September.According to the BAJ report, political programmes and debates continued to be ignored by the media and all the observers have criticised this glaring absence.“We regret that there has been no improvement in the media coverage of the campaign for the legislative elections, especially this was a chance for Belarus to normalise its relations with the international community,” Reporters Without Borders said.The final weeks of the election campaign were no different from the earlier ones. The BAJ has accused the state-controlled media of “totally depoliticising the election and marginalising political programmes and alternative candidates, while privately-owned publications are unable to fill the gap because of their limited distribution.” Media coverage has been limited to explaining the technical aspects of the polling and the way the Central Electoral Commission (CEC) works. As a result, Belarusian voters are not able to take an informed decision about the candidates.According to the findings of the BAJ’s monitoring, the state media focused on the activities of President Alyaksandr Lukashenko, the CEC, the local authorities and foreign observers. The president was the only person named by the Homyel Regional State Radio in its election coverage.The BAJ gave a cautious welcome to the CEC’s decision to rebroadcast the campaign spots of all the candidates. But the effect of the measure was limited by the fact that many of the spots were re-transmitted at times when there are relatively few viewers.The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s observers have also issued a report criticising the state media. It regretted that there was no coverage of candidates’ campaign speeches and the media focused on the election’s technical aspects.The OSCE report, issued on 19 September, said: “Media coverage, both on the national andlocal level, has been almost exclusively focused on procedural aspects of the election process. Most media, predominantly state-funded, have paid extensive attention to the president, as well as to other state authorities, including the government and the CEC, rather than on the role of the parliament or the candidates.”Meanwhile, problems have been reporting in the early voting which is being conducted during the five days prior to Sunday, the main election day.When Yuri Dziadzinkin, a reporter for the independent daily Narodnaya Vola, went with his press card to polling station No. 398 in Minsk, electoral officials told him he could not take any photos because the head of the polling station had forbidden it. CEC secretary Mikalai Lazavik explained the ban as being due to the journalist’s poor “human relations” with the polling station’s staff.
