The support is provided through rent concessions and product discounts.Like-for-like sales growth in the managed pubs division was at 2.2 per cent as the pub investment programme continued.“The actions taken to strengthen both the Leased and Managed businesses have resulted in an improved trading performance in the first 16 weeks of the financial year,” said Chief Executive Ian Dyson.“We are now looking to build on this momentum by focussing on further operational improvement across the business.” Dyson said his strategy review had continued and he would give an update in the first quarter of 2011.

CSR hits targets but lags in smartphone market

first_img Tags: NULL CHIPMAKER CSR posted fourth-quarter results at the top end of its guidance yesterday and said it would grow revenue in 2011. It was bolstered by new products targeting phone makers and auto companies. The maker of GPS, bluetooth and wi-fi chips posted fourth-quarter revenue of $184.8m (£131m) , ahead of consensus forecasts, but down from $198m a year ago. Chief executive Joep van Beurden said CSR was seeing good growth in automotive, where it supplies carmakers including Audi, Ford and Toyota, and consumer electronics.But its handset business had suffered as a key model from Nokia was slow to ramp up to full production, he said, and the group was weak in the fast-growing smartphone segment. CSR said first-quarter revenue would be between $155m and $170m, reflecting normal seasonality in a weaker period for consumer demand.

Tabcorp CIO Ross to step down for Griffith University role

first_img Regions: Oceania Australia Lottery AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tabcorp CIO Ross to step down for Griffith University role Australian lotteries and betting operator Tabcorp has revealed that Mandy Ross is to step down as its chief information officer in order to take up the role of chief digital officer with Griffith University in Brisbane. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Australian lotteries and betting operator Tabcorp has revealed that Mandy Ross is to step down as its chief information officer in order to take up the role of chief digital officer with Griffith University in Brisbane.Ross has been CIO since the merger of Tabcorp and Tatts Group in December 2017, prior to which she served in the same role at Tatts for just over three years.She will remain at Tabcorp until taking up her new position at the university in April 2020. In her last few months with the operator, Ross will continue to oversee the final stage of Tabcorp’s technology integration program and also the embedding the technology strategies. Following the Tabcorp-Tatts merger, she has been widely praised in the industry for her handling of such a large scale technology project.“This was a very difficult decision for Mandy to make but allows her to follow her passion in the higher education sector,” a Tabcorp spokesperson said in a statement issued to iGamingBusiness.com. “Managing a Brisbane-based team will also make it easier for Mandy to spend more time with her family.”Ross started at Tatts in February 2014 as head of technology transformation and process improvement, having joined the company from Intrepica, a start-up that offers gamified online learning resources to children.Earlier in her career, Ross spent over nine years with Wotif Group, an Australian business that provides reservation at hotels around the world. Ross started out as manager for business analysis in October 2003, before becoming CIO in July 2007.Confirmation of Ross’s departure comes after Tabcorp last month entered into a major partnership with North America’s National Basketball Association (NBA).Under the multi-year deal, Tabcorp will serve as an authorised sports betting operator of the NBA in Australia and use official NBA league marks on its various platforms.The partnership will also bring NBA TV, the league’s 24-hour television network, to Tabcorp’s Sky Channel in more than 4,400 TAB retail and entertainment sites across Australia.

Everton agrees early end to SportPesa sponsorship

first_imgMarketing & affiliates Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Regions: UK & Ireland English Premier League football club Everton has announced that it is to end its partnership with online betting operator SportPesa two years before the deal had been due to expire.SportPesa has served as the team’s main front-of-shirt sponsor since the start of the 2017-18 season, under a five-year agreement that had been set to run to the end of the 2021-22 campaign.However, Everton has now announced that the partnership will conclude at the end of the current 2019-20 season in May.Everton did not disclose the reasons behind the decision to end the partnership early, but it say it had been taken “following a comprehensive review by the club of its commercial strategy in line with its vision and future growth plans”.“This has been a difficult decision but one that allows us to best deliver on our commercial plan and to grasp the new opportunities now open to us,” an official Everton spokesperson said.“The club would like to thank SportPesa for all of the work that has been done together. Our partnership has seen our first team visit Africa on two occasions, as well as former players and club staff take part in numerous activations in the region.“This has allowed us to grow our own footprint in Africa and further strengthen our special relationship with the continent.”Everton added that it will appoint a new main partner ahead of the 2020/21 season.The decision comes following a difficult 2019 for SportPesa, which in September of last year announced that it to was to halt operations in its native Kenya over a dispute related to a tax on betting stakes.Shortly after this, SportPesa also announced it had made 453 Kenyan employees redundant after closing its operations in the country, calling for authorities in the country to repeal the new tax rate that caused it to withdraw from the market.However, in November 2019, the Kenyan Tax Appeals Tribunal ruled in favour of betting operators that challenged whether the controversial gambling tax should be levied on player winnings, rather than their original stakes.In its ruling, the court determined that the tax could only be applied to a player’s winnings at the end of every month, and that the KRA must collect revenue from customers, rather than directly from operators.The decision could pave the way for local operators such as SportPesa to return to the market.

How I’m planning to turn just £5 a day into a passive income

first_imgHow I’m planning to turn just £5 a day into a passive income Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Many investors dream of being able to live off a passive income stream from their stocks and shares. It is not as hard to hit this target as it might first seem. I believe all you need to achieve this goal is a set savings and investment plan, as well as a little bit of patience. 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…Indeed, by following these rules, I reckon it’s possible to build a passive income stream with an investment of just £5 a day. Passive income streamThe first stage on any passive income journey is to build a large savings pot. The best way to do this is to invest in the stock market.Over the past 35 years, UK blue-chip stocks have produced an average annual return for investors of around 8%. Equities have yielded this long term average return even though the market has dropped approximately 50% on two occasions. As such, I think it’s highly likely this trend will continue in future.That’s why I believe it is possible to turn an investment of just £5 a day into a financial nest egg large enough to produce a passive income. An investment of £5 a day, is worth roughly £152 a month or £1,825 a year. According to my calculations, this level of investment could achieve a final investment value of £534,000 over four decades. Doubling the investment to £10 a day or £304 a month, could see an investor achieve a nest egg worth £500k in 30 years. Investing for incomeAfter building a large savings pot, the next stage is to invest for income. There are plenty of options to choose from. The FTSE 100 currently supports an average dividend yield of around 4.4%. However, some companies in the index yield as much as 9%. I think the best approach could be to build a diversified basket of blue-chip income stocks. Based on the current yields available from stocks such as Phoenix Group, GlaxoSmithKline and mining giant BHP, I reckon it’s possible to achieve an average dividend yield of around 6%. On a lump sum of half a million pounds, this implies a potential passive income of £30k a year. If held in a Stocks and Shares ISA, this income would be tax-free. Plenty of optionsInvestors have plenty of options to generate a passive income stream. Saving £10 a day for 15 years could yield a savings pot of £100k. By investing this money in the high-yield blue-chip income stocks highlighted above, investors may be able to achieve a passive income of £6k a year. So, that’s how I’m planning to turn an investment of this £5 a day into a passive income stream. Any investor can follow a similar path, all it takes is a little research and patience. Considering the potential rewards from following a long-term strategy, such as that profiled above, the extra effort is almost certainly worth it in my opinion.  Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mention.

Who’s in line to be England’s No 12 if Manu Tuilagi joins Racing?

first_imgShould centre Manu Tuilagi swap Leicester for Paris, England may opt for a change in style in the No 12 shirt. Ali Stokes looks at the different options LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Hotshot: Worcester and England U20 centre Ollie Lawrence The up-and-coming centre talks football, childhood heroes and… Expand Should the national set-up decide to stick with the second playmaker option, but want to retain Farrell at fly-half, Sale Sharks’ 19-year-old Cameron Redpath and Northampton Saints’ 20-year-old James Grayson stand as exciting young prospects to rise through the ranks.Calling the shots: Ryan Mills gets his point across to his Worcester team-mates (Getty Images)A name not to be missed is Ryan Mills, who has been the form English inside-centre in the Premiership for a number of years, flaunting his physicality, ability at the breakdown and general excellence for Worcester.The 26-year-old stands as the most well-rounded option and the ideal halfway house between a Farrell or Tuilagi/Te’o in midfield. His leadership traits would also be a desirable prospect.THREE OF THE CONTENDERS Hotshot: Worcester and England U20 centre Ollie Lawrence When it comes to pace and power, the most prominent Premiership performers looking ready to take the step up are Newcastle Falcon Johnny Williams, Gloucesterman Mark Atkinson and Exeter Chief Ollie Devoto.With heights varying between 6ft 2in and 6ft 6in and weights from 103kg to 107kg, each of the trio offer size enough to serve as a physical presence without lacking the dynamism of a Test-quality inside-centre.On the ball: Ollie Devoto gets a pass away for Exeter (Getty Images)Finally, Worcester and current England U20 man Ollie Lawrence is yet another option that may come to the fore over the next few years.Short and stocky with wonderful power and pace, Lawrence may well be the closest replacement for Tuilagi when it comes to relative explosivity. However, the 19-year-old has some way to go yet and would require a stellar 12 months to play in the 2020 Six Nations.Sam Hill (Exeter), Max Wright (Bath), Nick Tompkins (Saracens) and Luke James (Sale Sharks) stand as outside bets. Hotshot: Northampton and England U20 fly-half James Grayson Hotshot: London Irish centre Johnny Williams Hotshot: London Irish centre Johnny Williamscenter_img From having a famous father to his love… Thought process: Manu Tuilagi is weighing up a move to Racing 92 (Getty Images) Hotshot: Northampton and England U20 fly-half James Grayson When did you take up rugby? When I… Who’s in line to be England’s No 12 if Manu Tuilagi joins Racing?Just three games into his long-awaited return to the England team, powerhouse centre Manu Tuilagi is weighing up a move to French giants Racing 92 after a decade with Leicester Tigers.Between the summer of 2013 and 2018, the 27-year-old suffered an almost unprecedented number of back-to-back, persistent injuries and he acquired a meagre five caps.No centre in world rugby can stand toe-to-toe with Tuilagi when it comes to causing havoc for the best laid defensive plans and drawing in defenders to open up gaping holes for team-mates to scythe through.The term ‘world class’ is banded around too willingly in the professional game, but this is a man who well and truly fits the bill.Eddie Jones has been waiting three years to promote the wrecking ball of a centre to England’s starting midfield, where he has contributed to the two Six Nations victories over the Irish and the French.Break time: Manu Tuilagi bursts through the Wales defence (Getty Images)Many, myself included, held huge reservations regarding Tuilagi’s move to the No 12 jersey from his usual position at outside-centre. However, he has taken to the role like a duck to water, with no sign of his tendencies to shoot out of the defensive line.As a stoic defensive presence on Owen Farrell’s shoulder and a go-to source of front-foot ball, England’s back-line has been transformed with Tuilagi’s 6ft 1in, 114kg presence.Herein lies the problem. Should the widely-reported Paris move come to fruition – he’s described it as the toughest decision of his career – Tuilagi would become unavailable for England following the end of the World Cup later this year, so who comes into the white No 12 jersey?An obvious first answer is that Worcester Warriors and British & Irish Lions centre Ben Te’o will resume his role. But the rugby league convert will be 33 this time next year and has himself suffered from consecutive injuries in recent times. Furthermore, Te’o’s abrasive style of play does not pertain to longevity.Power play: Ben Te’o in action for England against Australia (Getty Images)With no England-qualified player coming close to the type of destructive play as Tuilagi or Te’o, the national side will need to search for a different dimension at inside-centre. Jones and his eventual successor will have two options: return to the second playmaker at 12 or opt for a classic, well-rounded individual.An easy answer is to revert to type and re-establish the tried and tested George Ford-Farrell axis, with the option of retaining a third playmaker at 13 in the shape of Henry Slade or switching to a pacey option, with Jonathan Joseph, Joe Marchant and perhaps even current full-back Elliot Daly standing as prime candidates. Collapse TAGS: Leicester Tigers Expand Should Tuilagi put pen to paper and re-commit to Leicester Tigers, this debate will begin to fade into the background. But the England colossus’s injury record does not make for pleasant reading and a contingency plan to bring forward the next promising youngster would be prudent.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.last_img read more

Twitter donation tool created for those ‘rage fundraising’ moments

first_img Twitter users can now respond to an infuriating tweet by donating via Twitter to a US nonprofit. Trigger is an app that lets them channel their annoyance in a positive way.It was created by ecommerce developer Isaac Alfton who describes it as “retaliatory giving”. It arose from the personal need he felt on seeing offensive tweets to make an effective response.As well as making the donation it can generate a reply to the original message so that the person posting it sees that their original tweet inspired a donation. This can be particularly satisfying, but equally it can just inflame the conversation, so it is an optional feature. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. 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. Such fundraising approaches have been used before, such as the donations in January 2017 to International Planned Parenthood Federation in the name of Vice President Mike Pence (who received confirmations for each gift made), and the unwittingly sponsored neo-Nazi march which raised funds for refugee groups in 2015. Other Twitter donation toolsThere are other tools that let you give via Twitter, including Goodworld (which lets you donate via hashtag on Facebook, Twitter and the web) and tinyGive.In the UK GOOD Agency introduced #DONATE in April 2015.  Howard Lake | 3 March 2017 | News Alfton had been working on the tool during the US election campaign and then worked hard to complete it following Donald Trump’s election victory.How to donateYou can donate to any tweet with a dollar amount, the Twitter name of a US nonprofit, and the hashtag #TriggerGive. First, however, you have to create a Trigger account and register your credit card.You then choose whether you wish to include a reply so that the author of the original tweet is informed of your donation.Donations can be made to any verified US nonprofit that has a Twitter account. If a nonprofit hasn’t registered with Trigger it is invited to do so when someone makes their first donation.You can even use your TriggerGive account to set up regular monthly donations.Donations are processed instantly, but if you mistyped the amount or wish to change your mind you can “edit donations’ via Trigger for up to 24 hours.FeesTrigger charges a monthly fee of $1.59 to cover its costs, but does not charge anything on the donation. Donations are processed via PayPal which charges 30c and 2.9%.Alfton told Mashable:“It’s a really empowering tool. “It’s simple, and it also engages other people and raises awareness of wherever you are donating to.” Tagged with: Digital rage fundraising Twittercenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis35  209 total views,  1 views today Twitter donation tool created for those ‘rage fundraising’ moments Other creative ways to donate in retaliationHillary Clinton campaign fundraisers with every tweet by Donald Trump (November 2016)Donate the Hate turns hate comments into donations (February 2016)TrollAid ensures abusive online posters promote fundraising for refugees (January 2016)  210 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis35last_img read more

Pakistan: Dozens of armed police raid Karachi Press Club

Violence is sometimes used to break up the protests, as it was in November 2007 (photo: Asif Hasan / AFP). Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns last night’s police raid on the Karachi Press Club in the strongest possible terms and calls on the Sindh province authorities to shed all possible light on this unprecedented and provocative act of intimidation. “It is absolutely intolerable that police officers should act in a completely illegal manner like this in order to intimidate journalists,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We urge the Sindh province authorities to investigate this violation of what is a highly symbolic place for press freedom and to punish those responsible. Respect for the rule of law in Pakistan is at stake.” RSF_en News “The police tried to give the appearance of something simple but the story is much bigger,” RSF was told by a senior club member on condition of anonymity. “You can’t believe that the police officers who carried out this raid did not know where they were. There was a conspiracy.” Pakistan is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Karachi’s journalists met this afternoon to protest against the raid. Founded in 1958 and with around a thousand members, the Karachi Press Club is a place where journalists meet to defend their profession, condemn press freedom violations and violations of human rights in general, and to stage protests.
