Two hawks are sustaining their call for a rate rise while a dove is now pushing for further quantitative easing. Both City A.M. editor Allister Heath and Henderson’s Simon Ward still seek an increase in interest rates of 0.25 per cent. They argue that the recovery is already well under way and that high inflation warrants a tightening of policy.However, the Institute of Directors’ Graeme Leach emerges in the dovish camp, saying that the MPC should announce a small expansion in quantitative easing of around £25bn. The remaining six members of the shadow committee all voted to keep monetary policy on hold this month, following a “wait-and-see” policy. However, four of these six explicitly said that further loosening may be required in the coming months should the economy take a turn for the worse. Speculation of a three-way split at the Bank of England intensified ahead of last month’s meeting but the minutes revealed that only hawk Andrew Sentance dissented from the majority in his call for a rate rise. But the minutes showed again that the MPC had actively discussed the possibility of firing up the printing presses once again. With leading surveys pointing to slower growth in the third quarter some of the MPC may be tempted towards further loosening. Others may have been convinced by Sentance of the dangers of inflation.

CSR misses smartphone sales boom

first_img CHIPMAKER CSR forecast lower fourth-quarter revenue yesterday, reflecting a lack of exposure to smartphones and capacity constraints in the manufacture of its GPS chips, sending its shares plunging.The maker of GPS, bluetooth and wi-fi chips for phones, cars and digital cameras said fourth-quarter revenue would be $170-$185m, down from $198m a year ago and at the midpoint 20 per cent lower than in the third quarter.Chief executive Joep van Beurden said the guidance was below normal seasonal fluctuations – which would usually see fourth-quarter sales down about 10 per cent from the previous quarter – for three reasons:“We are underexposed in smartphones and the smartphone market is growing very rapidly. The economy is certainly less buoyant than it was earlier, and for some of our GPS products capacity is still tight and that’s weighing on Q4 as well.”CSR’s chips are in Blackberry-maker Research in Motion’s products. They are also in Nokia’s handsets, although mainly in feature phones, which have been eclipsed by growth in smartphones. Analysts at Execution Noble said the guidance would likely push down full-year revenue consensus by about five per cent.

Intralot hopeful of Q4 recovery after third quarter loss widens

first_img Intralot hopeful of Q4 recovery after third quarter loss widens Regions: US Central and Eastern Europe Southern Europe Bulgaria Turkey Greece EBITDA for the year to date came to €45.2m, a 42.6% drop, with operating loss jumping to €56.8m. This increased to €62.0m after income tax, and then €63.5m after its loss from non-controlling interests was factored in.  Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), meanwhile, was down only marginally, to €18.5m. Once financial items were factored in, the business’ operating loss widened from €5.4m in the prior year, to €14.0m.  Q3 results 2020 8th December 2020 | By Robin Harrison Tags: Intralot A further €8.7m came from game management operations, down 38.7% from the prior year. Email Address However Q3 saw the business continue to struggle from the loss of the Inteltek sports betting contract in Turkey and the loss of its Bulgarian licence, two factors that have slowed growth throughout the year.  After operating costs, including other income of €3.9m and €16.8m in administrative expenses, Intralot’s earnings before interest and tax came to €1.2m for the quarter, an improvement on the €1.1m loss posted in Q3 2019.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Lotteries and gaming giant Intralot says the reopening of Australian gambling venues and “smoother” sports betting operations leave it hopeful of a recovery in the fourth quarter of 2020, after Q3 was once again disrupted by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. These declines did see cost of sales fall sharply, to €76.9m, this left a gross profit of €20.9m, down 28.7%.  The company’s chairman and chief executive Sokratis Kokkalis, who returned to the position last month, said the business worked to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and adverse developments in certain jurisdictions during the period. Topics: Casino & games Finance Lottery Sports betting Online casino Product & technology Q3 results 2020 Online lottery Retail lottery Product & technology The biggest decline was reported for licensed (B2C) activities, for which revenue dropped 69.2% to €33.9m. Technology sales made up the majority, at €55.2m, and grew marginally year-on-year.  When €5.4m of income tax was paid, Intralot posted a net loss of €19.4m for the quarter. This widened by €1.2m once its non-controlling interests in other businesses was included, for a loss of €20.5m, up 108.1% year-on-year. For the nine months to 30 September, revenue was down 52.1% at €266.1m. This broke down to €153.9m from technology sales, down 2.5%, with B2C revenue plummeting 73.0%. Game management revenue, meanwhile, was down 64.6% at €20.6m.  While this was partially offset by a one-off equipment and services sale in the Netherlands, and an improved US performance, revenue for the three months to 30 September was down 44.9% year-on-year at €97.8m (£88.9m/$118.6m).last_img read more

Cycling from London to Auckland

first_img Tom Hudson and Jodie Burton reached New Zealand in time to experience all the World Cup had to offerTwo rugby nuts spent 18 months cycling to the World Cup. Here’s their story…We had plans to set up home in Australia and we wanted to see the world by bike, so we decided to cycle from the UK to New Zealand, raise money for charity and explore rugby across the world into the bargain.When we set off in May 2010 we had just one contact, in the Czech Republic. But the rugby family opened up to us and by the time we got to New Zealand we’d had loads of people getting in touch to say we could stay with them. It’s amazing how big grass-roots rugby is across the world. We’ve stayed with guys who are part of rugby projects all across Europe and Asia.Final signature on the scroll – Richie McCawWe arrived in New Zealand a week before the World Cup, flying in from Australia, then set off to cycle to Eden Park from Dunedin. The trip started in the rain and took in lots of hills so it took a big effort to keep going after so many months on the bikes. On the way we met Richie McCaw in Christchurch and the Russian team in Blenheim. We went up to Wellington to see Australia v USA and at Palmerston North we presented the Museum of Rugby with our scroll, which has been signed by rugby people from all over the world. That’s going to stay there for ten years, which is amazing.We made it to Eden Park the day before the quarter-finals and a Kiwi gave us tickets to two games. There was a bit of disappointment when England were knocked out, but it didn’t detract from the tournament for us. And that’s the sign of a good World Cup. We watched 12 countries play and we feel like we absorbed what the whole World Cup is about.People talk about cutting the number of World Cup sides, but it’s imperative that we don’t lose the colour of the pool stages. The moment you start thinking about how much money you can make from a World Cup, you lose interest in the World Cup itself. We want to make 50 million more people fall in love with the sport on the back of the World Cup.The highlight of our journey was meeting New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at Ponsonby RFC, where they had put up a display of our trip. Now that we’ve made so many contacts around the world, we want to build a global network, buddy up clubs so they can share their expertise. We want to work on developing rugby from the bottom up rather than the top down and anyone interested should contact us via cyclingtotherugbyworldcup.com.It’s been a great journey and we’ve met some amazing people. But we’re hoping this is just the beginning. This article appeared in the December 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine. CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND – SEPTEMBER 18: All Black captain Richie McCaw signs a scroll belonging to Jodie Burton (L) and Tom Hudson during a New Zealand All Blacks IRB Rugby World Cup 2011 fan day at Pioneer Recreation & Sport Centre on September 18, 2011 in Christchurch, New Zealand. Jodie and Tom have cycled 30,000kms from Twickenham Stadium in London to attend the Rugby World Cup and get their last signature of McCaw.

Charles Piutau: “I love razzling out there”

first_img At his new home: Piutau at Ashton Gate (pic by Sam Riley) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS He returns to the Gallagher Premiership with a hefty price tag, but Charles Piutau just wants to entertain at Bristol Bears. This first appeared in the September 2018 issue of Rugby World. Having won a Junior World Cup as he scored freely for the Baby Blacks, then won a World Sevens Series with Tietjens, it seemed to make sense that Piutau would become an All Black. But having become a regular winger for New Zealand after an initial period shuffling around the back-line, Piutau made his decision to move abroad. Plenty of Kiwis could not fathom why he would make such a call at just 23.At the end: Facing Samoa in 2015Layers of thought present themselves as he says: “My faith has always been a big thing, growing up as a Pacific Island kid. My parents always took us to church and taught us these values and to have a relationship with God. So I’ve made a lot of my rugby decisions being aware of that but also of my family, as well as the people around me.“Being an All Black I was like, ‘Man, this is awesome!’ You grow up wanting to put on that jersey. Then I was playing for a few seasons and the World Cup was coming. I was thinking about playing in that and wanted nothing else.“But rugby is a short career and these factors start coming in. You start looking at your family, and where they have come from as well. My parents migrated from Tonga to New Zealand to give us all a better opportunity, and then it comes down to me and part of it is wanting to maximise my career.“I was thinking about all of these factors. As the opportunity became more and more of a genuine option, I thought I may as well give it a crack.“I’ve enjoyed it and I don’t regret anything. There’s a bit of being an adult about it too. Growing up I was quite ‘young’ and I wanted to find my own feet. Being the youngest of ten I’ve always been protected and looked after.“And for my family, it was a big decision. ‘Oh wow, he’s looking to go to the other side of the world.’ That was the hardest thing. We can talk about how tough it was to not play for the All Blacks, but leaving the family I’ve grown up with, lived with all my life – it was all I knew – to go away, that was a big step. I feel like I’ve been able to grow up.”Previous incarnation: Piutau during his stint at WaspsSo many of us strive to feel like that for a lot of our adult lives. We won’t all need separation to do it, sure. But on the other hand, as Piutau gets familiar with his new Bristolian surroundings, he now has every chance to grow further.It may help that Piutau’s older brother Siale is also at the club, but the pair playing for the same side has never happened purely by design. Though there is another side Charles would like to play for alongside his brother.There has been talk in recent months about the former All Black finding a way of switching allegiance to represent Tonga. A complicated undertaking that would involve playing in Olympic qualifier events with Tonga Sevens – something hard to do with the team not a core side on the World Series. It looks very unlikely to happen before we get to the 2019 World Cup. But time is on his side and if he does it, we believe, it will prove an influential move.Related: Meet Tonga hooker Paula Ngauamo“If it ever comes then I’d be more than happy to represent Tonga,” Piutau tells us. “It’s my heritage, my culture.“But with international rugby you work together with your club and your international team. We need to think about what’s best for everyone. In the perfect world, if everyone is happy then we will go through all that.Settling in: Piutau is now in the West Country“Playing for the family is one thing. The other thing is playing in a World Cup; I haven’t done it. There is part of me that still wants to taste that level of rugby. I definitely have a desire to pull on that red jersey and represent Tonga, more so if I do it alongside my brother, but if not together I’d still want to play.“My parents would definitely be very emotional, proud and excited if that phone call ever came to tell them I’m in.”Right now, though, Piutau’s full focus is on the ‘transition’ needed to become a prosperous Bear. If there’s a Lam-led revolution afoot, the league newbies have a hot-stepper ready to roll. But what should the club’s approach be now: go right for Lam’s Champions Cup place target or survive season one?“You’ve got to have a goal of winning,” Piutau insists. “You can’t think in survival mode. If I feel like that it’s almost like settling. Shoot for the stars and if you fall, hopefully it’s not to the bottom and you still survive!“Like Pat has said, you have that drive and that boldness – you back yourself to be amongst the best in the Prem and in Europe.”center_img This article originally appeared in the September 2018 issue of Rugby World. Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Mid-answer, Charles Piutau’s head is wobbling as he jerks in his chair, trying to explain how he developed his fast feet.“I have always seen footwork as a strength of mine, trying to beat defenders and get away from them,” says the Bristol Bears’ headliner new signing, the versatile back with 17 All Black caps to his name. “Hopefully I’ll create something out of nothing. I work on it. Growing up it was a thing where you just try to step someone…”And here the wobbling goes into overdrive. Hold up, hold up, we need you to explain what you mean here.“Well… you play touch rugby a lot and you’ll try the jump-step, you’ll pop up and the body loosens up a bit at the leg and then it wiggles and you step…”He goes through the full gamut of actions, without ever leaving his seat. Finally he concedes: “It’s more a backyard footy thing, right, messing around with mates in general or at the park. As a kid growing up you just try it out, whereas now as a professional you work on your agility and speed, in the gym… but you want it to come naturally. It’s exactly like that messing around when you get on well with team-mates.”Entertainment will be high on the agenda of many neutrals as the former Wasp returns to the Premiership. It was a shock to many when Piutau eschewed All Blacks life in 2015 to sign a contract with Ulster, at just 23. He was released well ahead of his big 2016 move to Northern Ireland and filled in the interim with Wasps, electrifying the top English league during his short stint.Now 26, he left Ulster for Bristol at a time of great intrigue. Bankrolled by mega-wealthy Steve Lansdown, the side recently (and for some, controversially) rebranded to become the Bears. In a column for Rugby World, respected head coach Pat Lam also explained that the newly-promoted club want to become synonymous with the sharp end of Champions Cup rugby.Standing up: Piutau playing for Ulster in the Champions CupAmidst all of this, much chat about Piutau’s big move has been about the war chest used to acquire his services – many believe him to be the best-paid player in England, which is one of the reasons he finds himself on our list.With great pay packets comes great responsibility, you would imagine.Piutau gives his view. “You can get to a place where you think, ‘Man, I have to play up to whatever amount I’m being paid, you have to live up to that.’“But I know that if I try to train or play up to that place, I am not going to perform well. That’s the wrong mindset.“I just want to do everything I can to perform for my team-mates and my club. Through that way of thinking, everything else will look after itself.”So what if someone says to you, ‘Hey, wait a second, you’re the highest-paid player in England, aren’t you?’“I’ll just say ‘That’s that’. I love what I do and I want to be the best I can. I’ll go and do what I enjoy the most and if that’s razzling, I love doing that out there, getting the ball in my hands. Why not?”Related: Beauden Barrett on his drive to improve That’s some one-job-at-a-time thinking at first but then there’s a smile in the eyes as the caveat is added on – the promise of flashing feet to come. It’s also a confident response to a question that is likely to recur at the start of Piutau’s stay in the West Country.Confidence is something the full-back has had to dig for. See, he’s worked with coach Lam before, with the veteran giving the kid his first two games in Super Rugby before Lam was out the door at Auckland Blues.Despite the almost accursed recent history of the Blues, the Auckland area – where Piutau, the youngest of ten children, was born – has produced many incredible athletes. Young Charles struggled to make his mark at first. He missed a few age-grade sides, before making the national U18s. Then he struggled to hold down a regular place in the ITM Cup. It took time away with New Zealand Sevens to give him a jolt of belief, with the fabled Sir Gordon Tietjens telling him to back himself whenever he got the ball in his hands.Partners in crime: Piutau and Bears team-mate Steven Luatua with the Bledisloe CupBy the time Lam called for the cavalry at the end of his last Super Rugby season, Piutau was buzzing. He felt instantly comfortable at the level and was Man of the Match first out. With two outings at the end of a pig of a Blues season, Piutau laughs: “I was unbeaten!”It’s hard to imagine that a player with such frightening attacking talents could ever be out of coaches’ minds. Confidence is a tricky thing to pin down though.“A bit is being a Pacific Islander, you can be timid or shy,” says Piutau, the son of Tongan immigrants. “And so it’s about being comfortable with my own ability and expressing myself, feeling like I could do that in any environment. For me it was a two- to three-year period where I wasn’t doing that. Then when I got a taste in the sevens and got confidence to back myself, I looked back and thought, ‘Man, I’m wasting time!’ I was holding myself back, not expressing myself.”last_img read more

In his video, McConnell speaks of meeting Christ in those who suffer. Recalling his own bout with illness years ago, the bishop dons a hospital gown and says, “In the end, underneath all our fancy clothes, our masks, our daily situations, we all look like this. We are all waiting for healing.”The Pittsburgh diocese has several ties to the movie. The producers chose St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Mt. Lebanon to film scenes where the main characters initially meet in a support group and where they return later in the film. A cast member in that support group is Alexander Murph, a teenage cancer patient and member of St. Thomas Memorial Church, Oakmont. His father and St. Thomas rector, the Rev. Jeffrey Murph, also appears as an unidentified extra. Murph told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that church-centered care for those who suffer rang true in his own family’s situation, “because the church really did support us. I don’t know how people manage without that kind of support.”Bishop McConnell’s video is posted on the diocesan website and on YouTube.http://youtu.be/j2ZEfXXUkrk Rector Tampa, FL Submit a Press Release Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Washington, DClast_img read more

The apartment was originally built in the early 1990’s. It had remained relatively untouched and in real need of an upgrade. It is a two-bedroom apartment, however the client was using the second bedroom as a home office. Our design managed to utilise the spaces more effectively by integrating a study zone into previously unused corridor, thus reclaiming the second bedroom for its intended purpose.Save this picture!© Dan PrestonSave this picture!PlantaSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Dan PrestonThe apartment overlooks some of Melbourne’s beautiful gardens, however the original living space made no reference to this. We re-orientated the layout to overlook the gardens, allowing the outside to flood into the living space and give the client better connection to the outdoors. The design looked to maximize floor space through carefully integrated joinery that connects the kitchen, laundry, and bathroom spaces within a single minimalist box. A second joinery element was added opposite to provide a separate home office with additional storage.Save this picture!© Dan PrestonLight was a significant factor in determining materials. Being a south facing apartment, it had a tendency towards darkness. We chose a light colour palette that included white stone, light grey joinery, and oak flooring to help draw much needed natural brightness into the space.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Events ‘Chaptain Handlebar’, Matt Hitchen, is embarking on a 140 mile coast to coast cycling fundraiser with a difference on October 28. Matt is a manager at a cocktail bar and is known for his image as a vintage bartender, complete with waxed moustache.The 24 year old from Gateshead will attempt to ride the route the old fashioned way, on a penny farthing, to raise funds for national charity The Sick Children’s Trust. Matt’s penny farthing has been generously supplied by www.iwantoneofthose.com.The Sick Children’s Trust, which provides high quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for families whose children are receiving hospital treatment for serious illness, helped Matt’s family stay close to his cousin, Jamie Green. Jamie was being treated for several weeks at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary late last year for ornithine carbamoyl transferase deficiency. This is a rare, life threatening, metabolic disorder he had struggled with all his life.Matt said: ”As my family lives in Cumbria it would have put real stress on them to travel back and forth every day to visit Jamie. The Sick Children’s Trust allowed us to stay close by at their ‘Home from Home’, Crawford House, and concentrate on what was really important – being there for Jamie.“Jamie passed away last December, aged just 21, and I wanted to do something to remember him by as well as give back to the charity for all their support during a really hard time. He had a brilliant sense of humour so I know he would have loved the idea of this challenge!”Matt has started training for the challenge by riding his penny farthing from Gateshead to work in Newcastle most days and is slowly getting ready to take on the route. His ride starts in Whitehaven in Cumbria on October 28 and will finish three days later in Tynemouth. He is using the Hadrian’s Cycleway, rather than the more usual route, in recognition of Jamie’s love of the Roman Wall and its forts.Lydia Solomon, community fundraiser at The Sick Children’s Trust said: “Matt and his family have been through such an awful time of it over the last year with losing Jamie and I am just glad we were there to support him and his family when they needed it most. It’s great to see him embrace fundraising for our charity in such a fun and unique way. As far as I know this has never been tried before but, hopefully, it will start a trend in fundraising! I wish him the best of luck for his challenge.”To support Matt please go to www.inforapenny.org.uk In for a pennylast_img read more
