It was the biggest one-week jump in about six months and confounded analyst forecasts for a small drop to 405,000.The jobs data weighed on US stocks. Government debt prices traded little changed as concerns about Europe’s debt struggles helped support the market.“The jobless number highlights the patchy recovery we’ve seen in the job market and reinforces that it will be a slow process bringing down the jobless rate,” said Omer Esiner, market analyst at Commonwealth Foreign Exchange in Washington.The rebound in benefit claims came in the wake of the holidays, which may have hindered new applications and created a backlog. Claims, which peaked around 650,000 in April 2009, had been on a downward trajectory, dipping below 400,000 for the first time in two years during the week of Christmas.And in a separate dataset, US producer prices climbed 1.1 per cent in December after a 0.8 per cent rise in November, according to another Labour Department report. Inflation excluding food and energy, however, rose just 0.2 per cent, in line with forecasts. That left the year-on-year gain in core producer prices at 1.3 per cent, just below analyst estimates, helping tame inflation fears.

Malta Gaming Authority cancels Star World’s licence

first_img27th September 2019 | By contenteditor The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has cancelled Star World Limited’s B2C gaming licence with immediate effect after ruling that the operator breached its Compliance and Enforcement Regulations.The cancellation is effective immediately, with Star World no longer authorised to carry out any gaming operations, register new players or accept new customer deposits in Malta.However, the MGA has informed Star World that it should retain and provide access to all registered players, as well as refund all funds owed to customers.Following an investigation, the MGA ruled that Star World breached paragraphs E, F and H of the Third Schedule to the Gaming Act.In relation to paragraph E, the MGA ruled Star World failed to make payments to the regulator when lawfully due, while the breach of paragraph F related to Star World failing to make payments to players.The MGA also said Star World failed to ensure both the integrity and availability of essential regulatory data. Although the regulator did not go into further detail, it did confirm that this placed the operator in breach of paragraph H.Star World, which initially had its licence suspended in August 2017, may be able to appeal the decision to cancel its authorisation.Earlier this week, the MGA also cancelled UWin4U Limited’s B2C gaming service licence in the country after finding the operator in breach of its regulations. The regulator said UWin4U failed to comply with paragraph E of the Third Schedule to the Gaming Act.Last month, the MGA also cancelled RMI Limited’s B2C gaming service licence for a breaching paragraph E and H.

Is Lloyds Banking Group a buy ahead of its earnings release?

first_img Anna Sokolidou | Friday, 14th February, 2020 | More on: LLOY Is Lloyds Banking Group a buy ahead of its earnings release? I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Image source: Getty Images. Long-term investors aim to get great value for their money. This usually means buying large and sound companies at low prices. Some of the criteria for a good value investment are a low price-to-earnings ratio, a low price-to-book-ratio and regular dividend payments.One of these investment opportunities seems to be Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY). Here, I will examine this well-established bank – due to release its 2019 results on 20 February – in detail.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…The bank looks like a bargain right now in spite of its high earnings and the hawkish stance of the Bank of England. British banks are in a much better position than their peers in Switzerland or the Eurozone, where negative rates have heavily impacted the banking industry.Lloyds Banking Group has one of the lowest price-to-earnings ratios in the FTSE 100 index, which is below 8. This is one of the lowest ratios among the peers even though Lloyds is the largest bank in the UK.The bank’s shareholders enjoy a dividend yield of almost 6% per year currently, and also benefit from Lloyds’ share buy-back programme. In addition to that, the blue-chip stock is trading at just about 90% of its book value per share, which I think is unbelievable in comparison to many companies in other sectors that seem to be highly indebted.Even though the third quarter of 2019 was marked by a decrease in profits compared to the same period of 2018, it was due to an additional PPI insurance charge.The bank’s overall efficiency seems to be constantly increasing. Lloyds Banking Group is planning to close 56 branches this year, which should make its business “leaner and fitter”, and the cost-cutting initiative should contribute to improved profits and dividends. In fact it currently has one of the lowest cost-to-income ratios in the banking industry, which serves as a good indicator of its efficiency.The most recent share price changes resulted from external factors. Lloyds’ shares rallied in the middle of December due to the Conservative party’s win and the improved chances of a Brexit deal. However, the enthusiasm faded afterwards due to investors’ doubts that a trade deal with the EU would be signed. The coronavirus problem also contributed to the shares’ recent pullback in price.In my view, Lloyds is a wonderful long-term investment at a time when the world’s stock indices are at record highs and glamorous high-tech companies seem to be overvalued. In spite of the world economy’s stagnation, the recently published macroeconomic statistics for the UK’s services sector show signs of relief and could also translate into even better returns for Lloyds. However, I would be mindful of external geopolitical factors. Possible “black swan” events include a no-trade deal Brexit, bad US-China or US-EU trade war news and even US election results.

Super 14 Semi Finals preview

first_imgFriday May 22, 2009 Super 14 Semi Finals preview It’s Super 14 Semi Final weekend as the Chiefs and the Hurricanes do battle in Hamilton on Friday, and the Bulls host the Crusaders in Pretoria on Saturday.The Canes vs the Chiefs promises to be an open match with both sides possessing serious strike power out wide. Up front, fascinating battles will take place between the big men, as it’s Rodney Soalo up against Sione Lauaki at the back of the scrums.The Chiefs have never made the Final, so will be looking to change that after their highly impressive season.In Pretoria we’ll see the powerful Bulls being taken on by last years winners, the Crusaders. Richie McCaw’s men had a slow start to the season, but as always, made things right and got themselves into a semi final position.The Bulls, 2007 champions themselves, will be without their first choice center pairing due to suspension and injury, but have speed to burn out wide, and a highly physical and confrontational forward pack.Loftus Versfeld is an intimidating place to play, but the Crusaders have loads of experience and quality, so wont be phased. This one should be a classic.

Scotland see off Italy in final warm-up match at Murrayfield

first_imgMonday Aug 22, 2011 Scotland see off Italy in final warm-up match at Murrayfield Scotland are in good spirits following their 23-12 win over a strong Italy team at Murrayfield on Saturday. Scotland scored two tries, but it was Italy that scored the try of the match. You can see all the tries in the video below.Scotland fielded a side that wasn’t at full strength, so will be encouraged by the win, and particularly the form of flyhalf Dan Parks. They still have some way to go though to reach their best before their first match of the Rugby World Cup on September 10th, again Romania.Coach Andy Robinson still felt they could have played better however, saying that he was frustrated that they didn’t score more points with the possession and chances they had.“That’s the mentality, the skill level, the decision-making we’ve got to be able to find. We are working hard to create opportunities — it’s now about really nailing them,” he said.Italy produced a lovely try that included two neat inside flicks and a very good finish from flying winger Tommaso Benvenuti, but there was a sad moment late in the game as big Nikki Walker injured his knee in contact, so won’t be on the plane to New Zealand with the rest of the squad.

Having originally intended to build a single vacation home large enough to be shared by three families on two conjoined 6mx8m lots nestled in the woods of Rio Grande do Sul, the project took a radical turn in order to take advantage of the unique landscape and the vast vegetation. Instead of a single home, the architect utilized three separate structures to create a mixed indoor/outdoor living space with all the accoutrements of a conventional house such as bedrooms, living room, bathroom, kitchen, foyer and barbecue pit (which is essential in the state of Rio Grande do Sul). By optimizing the layout via integration of the outdoor environment, whereby the deck is the extension of the living room and the barbecue serves as a focal point of the foyer, the architect was able to address all of clients’ requirements.Save this picture!© Alessandro QuevedoSave this picture!© Alessandro QuevedoThe houses were built using Structural Insulated Panels (SIP), a sustainable prefabrication technology which provides great strength and comfort at low cost . The three 35m ² houses were assembled in less than a day and a half, as shown in the video. The 48 prefabricated panels arrived at the site with built-in conduits for electrical and plumbing services. This allowed the two experienced carpenters, who were working as the onsite assemblers, to erect the panels without any problems even though they had never worked with prefabricated SIPs before.Save this picture!© Alessandro QuevedoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Alessandro QuevedoSave this picture!© Alessandro QuevedoThe material quality of the project is directly related to the prefabricated system, for SIP panels are nothing but an insulating core of EPS coated by two OSB plates. Internally, this plate is its own finish. Externally, the system is adorned with a waterproof membrane and galvalume tile coating (55% Aluminum-Zinc alloy coated sheet steel). The finished product is a rigid metal box that provides contrast to the abundant organic forms of the natural surroundings, while the interior finishes present as a wooden box that transfers warmth and comfort.Save this picture!© Alessandro Quevedo center_img Area:  105 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Brazil Lead Architect: “COPY” ArchDaily “COPY” Projects Project gallerySee allShow lessEast Lake Beach House / Robert M.

Drought Could Have Lasting Effect On Trees

first_imgAdditional information about the drought is available at the Purdue Extension drought website at https://www.purdue.edu/drought. The site contains tips and resources for farmers, consumers and homeowners. Source: Purdue In addition to watering, Purcell urged homeowners to protect tree trunks from mechanical damage such as lawn mowers and string trimmers, reduce competition for available moisture with other plants, turf and shrubs, and add mulch to the root zone of trees at a depth of at least 2 inches to preserve soil moisture. “These things are especially important to do during drought,” he said. Home News Feed Drought Could Have Lasting Effect On Trees By Gary Truitt – Jul 19, 2012 For older, well-established trees Purcell recommends providing an additional inch of water every week or so to keep leaves turgid. To measure an inch of water, place an empty tuna or cat food can under a tree’s canopy and turn on a sprinkler system. Turn off the sprinkler when the water is 1 inch deep in the can. “For those trees with mulch beds, you should consider adding a half gallon of water per square foot of mulch area,” Purcell said. All 92 Indiana counties are experiencing some level of drought, with many counties in the northeast, south-central and southwest parts of the state in extreme drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Purcell said the drought already has left trees in urban areas with permanent damage, although it might not be evident this year. Warm weather earlier this year interrupted normal bud formation, which controls shoot length and expansion. The dry conditions that followed led to decreased numbers of new leaves within buds and new stem segments.“Drought not only influences the number of leaves but also the size, as well as twig extension the following year when those buds expand,” Purcell said. “The result of prolonged dry conditions may not inhibit the first growth but may decrease the number of stem units formed in the new bud that will expand during the second or third, or more, flushes of growth. If drought continues, all growth flushes will be affected. Thus, tree growth next year will be atypical and, again, create predisposed conditions to diseases and insects if not monitored and managed properly.” Previous articleMarket Update 11AM 7/19/12Next articleRussian Trade Bill Gets Approval of Senate Finance Committee Gary Truitt Facebook Twittercenter_img SHARE SHARE Drought Could Have Lasting Effect On Trees Purdue Extension urban forestry specialist Lindsey Purcell inspects leaves of a tulip poplarAlthough trees have deeper moisture-reaching roots than agricultural crops, they are not immune to this summer’s persistent drought, a Purdue Extension urban forestry specialist says. Trees across Indiana and the Midwest are struggling in the arid conditions. Some could succumb or suffer for years to come, Lindsey Purcell said. “Drought can have a major impact on tree health and survival by effectively slowing and reducing growth,” he said. “If drought is severe enough or lasts for a prolonged period of time – such as what we’re experiencing now – it also can cause death to all or portions of a tree.” While not something most homeowners think about doing, watering trees of any size and age can go a long way toward minimizing drought damage, especially for newly planted trees or those less established, Purcell said. When watering younger and newly established trees, homeowners should follow the “5 plus 5” rule each week: give the tree 5 gallons of water plus 5 gallons for every diameter inch of tree trunk. For example, if a tree has a trunk diameter of 4 inches, provide 20 gallons of water slowly over the root zone. Facebook Twitter More common, however, is the effect drought has on a tree’s ability to withstand insects and diseases. A water-deprived tree is unable to produce its usual levels of carbohydrates, significantly lowering its energy reserves. Those reserves are needed for a tree to produce chemicals that ward off pathogens. The drought also is providing an ideal environment for emerald ash borers, Purcell said.

The national organization, which has more than 400 university chapters in 44 states and seven countries, was founded by three Harvard undergraduate students in 2009. The goal is to create an online magazine dedicated to, written by and focused on empowering college women.A screenshot of Her Campus Media’s colorful homepage. (Photo Courtesy: www.hercampusmedia.com)It is now the number one media portfolio for college women and Gen Z, according to its website.“Her Campus has amassed the largest female college audience of any publication,” said Forbes in their article about how the organization began.McCarthy joined the Her Campus Media community in high school. “Having a Her Campus chapter at the college I would be attending was really important to me as I was deciding where to go,” said McCarthy. “I was so excited when I saw that TCU was listed as one of the schools with a chapter, but I didn’t realize until I got on campus that it was decommissioned in 2017.”She teamed up with Anastasia Helms, a sophomore nursing major, to reinstate TCU’s chapter.Kendall McCarthy (left) and Anastasia Helms (right) help SGA host an event in the TCU Commons. (Kendall McCarthy/Photo)The pair met through the Student Government Association. The blog launched in March with posts from Helms and McCarthy. Helms also serves as the editor-in-chief of the blog.A goal of empowerment Her Campus is seen as a safe space for people to share their ideas and experiences, said Helms.Anyone from any major can join, said McCarthy. Although the organization is geared towards a female audience, all gender identities are welcome to join. “It’s very different from any other organization on campus because you’re able to write about a variety of things whereas other organizations are limited to a very specific goal,” said Helms. “Our goal of empowering people is so broad and you can achieve that in so many ways.”TCU’s chapter is run by an executive board and writing committee of almost all women, with the exception of one man.Martin Vershel, a sophomore theatre major, serves as the Operations Direction of the chapter. “Supporting women isn’t just for women,” said Vershel. “Equity starts with men putting the women in their lives first and working to level the playing field.”Vershel started the column Girl, For Real, where he interviews women and discusses their successes. He started the column to highlight the experiences of triumphant women with hopes that the next generation of women can learn from their stories.“There are other writing organizations on campus, but Her Campus is really the only one that focuses on the topics we cover like sex, relationships, health and career,” said McCarthy. “Our topics are so diverse, and I think that’s what makes us so special.”Chloe Cloud, a sophomore English, journalism and fashion merchandising triple major, writes for the blog.“I love that we have a platform to speak on behalf of women at TCU and to discuss real issues and events happening in women’s lives,” said Cloud.Helms and McCarthy said they are eager to see what TCU’s chapter of Her Campus will accomplish. “There are a lot of moving parts of the organization, so we are excited to see how the members of our chapter use the freedom that Her Campus gives them to create something different,” said Helms.
