Aristocrat and Aspire latest to provide Covid-19 updates

first_img Aristocrat and Aspire latest to provide Covid-19 updates Casino & games 18th March 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Casino & games Finance Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Gaming machine supplier Aristocrat Leisure and platform provider Aspire Global have both issued updates on how the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) is affecting their business.Aristocrat opted to withdraw its outlook statement for 2020 due to “softer demand” as casinos across the world close to reduce the likelihood of the virus spreading.The business said it has been putting mitigation measures in place for months, as the virus has been affecting its Asian business for some time.Aristocrat also said that it is putting risk management and mitigation plans into place, so that the business may “emerge from the challenges caused by COVID19 as quickly and strongly as possible”.Aspire, meanwhile, said it is “carefully monitoring” the situation surrounding the outbreak. It said the impact should not be too severe as sports betting only represents 5% of revenue, with online casino revenue unaffected by the pandemic, while remote working has long been an “ established way of working” within the business.“Due to the relatively small part of revenues from sports betting, Aspire Global do not expect its revenues to be impacted by the broad cancellation of sports events,” the business said. “In order to mitigate the impact from the cancellation of sports events, Aspire Global and its B2B clients will re-allocate resources including media spend to the casino segment.”Tsachi Maimon, chief executive of Aspire Global, said the business remains confident going forward.“The top priority for us today is to safeguard the health of our employees and their families,” Maimon said. “We took precautionary actions early and can today conclude that we have maintained a high service level towards our operator customers.“Aspire Global has been profitable since its foundation in 2005. That, in combination with our strong cash position and ability to generate cash, we are confident about the continued execution of our growth strategy.”Aristocrat and Aspire are the latest in a long list of businesses in the gambling industry to issue updates on how the virus is affecting business.Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair and FanDuel, warned that the cancellation of sports events could lead to a £110m (€121.3m/$136.0m) decline in (EBITDA) as approximately 78% of its total revenue in 2019 was generated by betting on sports.Flutter’s future merger partner The Stars Group, however, said that while these cancellations will have a major impact on its sports betting revenue, it remained confident of growth as much of its revenue comes from poker and casino. The operator added that so far it has performed ahead of expectations so far in the current quarter.Ladbrokes Coral operator GVC Holdings revealed that its own EBITDA could decline by £150m because of the lack of sports betting opportunities, before adding a further loss of up to £25m when it was announced that all British horseracing until the end of April would be suspended.William Hill, meanwhile, suspended its 2019 dividend as it expects significant disruption from the suspension of professional sports – with 53% of 2019 revenue coming from sports betting – and the closure of US casinos.Affiliate giant Better Collective has said its financial targets remain unchanged despite the ongoing postponements and cancellations.The Rank Group, LeoVegas, SBTech and Sazka Group all also offered updates.Across the industry, share prices have plummeted with the The Dow Jones Gambling Index falling more than 20% in a day on Monday and more than 50% in the past month. Gaming machine supplier Aristocrat Leisure and platform provider Aspire Global have both issued updates on how the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) is affecting their business.last_img read more

New world record set at 24 hour charity darts event

first_img  104 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Events Howard Lake | 5 October 2009 | News New world record set at 24 hour charity darts event The event organisers, Ross Sheridan and tinnitus sufferer Stuart Budd, now plan to make the charity darts match an annual event. They have personally been supported by the three organisations in the past and chose to set up the event in order to give back to the charities.Ross was raising funds in memory of his daughter Karen who tragically died from an epileptic seizure last year, while Stuart was raising funds for the BTA since – as a tinnitus sufferer – he has found the charity to be of great help and support. Support Dogs train seizure alert dogs who respond and alert their owners to an imminent epileptic seizure – if Ross’ daughter has had such a dog, it would have given her 10-15 minutes warning to alert someone.Roy Bratby, Chairman of the BTA, said: “The BTA receives no government funding so relies on generous donations, legacies and income from memberships to support our work and spread the message of “Better Tinnitus Awareness. This fun event was a great success, and I would like to express my best wishes and gratitude to all involved for their valuable contribution”.Tinnitus is not an illness or disease, but a term that describes the sensation of hearing a noise in the absence of an external sound. Ringing, whistling, and buzzing are common but more complex sounds may also occur. Almost five million people in the country, a staggering 10% of the adult population, suffer with the condition at some point in their life and it often can be very distressing for the affected individual as it may affect sleep, concentration and mood.As a world leader in providing support and advice about tinnitus, the BTA has a trained team of friendly and experienced advisors for anyone who is experiencing tinnitus or is simply seeking ./guidance or information about the condition. During Tinnitus Awareness Week the British Tinnitus Association will hope to raise awareness of the freephone helpline, 0800 018 0527, and website, www.tinnitus.org.uk which are both useful resources. The charity also provides valuable information about prevention techniques such as limiting exposure to excess noise.EndsEditors NotesThe BTA is an independent charity which supports thousands of tinnitus sufferers and advises medical professionals from across the world.The experienced team at the BTA understands the impact that tinnitus can have on the lives of sufferers and those who live with them, so seeks to provides the most appropriate and expert advice and information free of charge – via a free helpline on 0800 018 0527 and online at www.tinnitus.org.uk. The BTA also offers printed information and audio support via post.For more informationContact: Zoe ThompsonE-mail: [email protected]: 01202 777111Address: MMPR, Unit C, Acorn Business Park, Ling Road, Poole, Dorset, UK, BH12 4NZcenter_img 5 October 2009 –The British Tinnitus Association (BTA), the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to supporting those who experience tinnitus, was one of three non-profit organisations which benefited from a successful 24-hour charity darts match held on Friday 25th September at Chiswick Social Club, Chiswick High Street, London, UK. Organisers expect the event to have raised thousands of pounds, a third of which will go to the BTA, and the remainder will be split equally between the charities Epilepsy Bereaved and Support Dogs.Jason Clark, the renowned Scottish darts player also known as ‘The Cockney Jock’, set a new Guinness World Record during the event based on completing 533 darts games within a non-stop 24 hour marathon session.The event attracted more than 100 people, many of whom pledged money to support the three nominated charitable causes. Supporters guessed how many 501 dart games the players could complete during the 24 hours – with each guess supporters pledged £1.00, and 50 pence of each pound was split between the three charities. A raffle featuring prizes, such as a Eurostar trip to Paris, free haircuts, driving lessons, car MOTs and cinema tickets for a West End show, were kindly donated by local businesses and raised further funds.

USDA Report At A Glance

first_img Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleFarmers Still Support Trump, but Worry Over Farm Bill Hoosier Ag Today Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Report At A Glance SHARE Facebook Twitter USDA Report At A Glance By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 10, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Wheat:  Projected 2017/18 U.S. wheat supplies are decreased this month on lower production, down 21 million bushels to just over 1.7 billion bushels. The August NASS production forecasts for durum and other spring wheat indicated a significant decline compared to last year, primarily due to continued severe drought conditions affecting the Northern Plains. Partially offsetting this decrease is higher winter wheat production. Global 2017/18 wheat supplies increased significantly, primarily on an 8.6-million-ton production increase in the Former Soviet Union (FSU). Russian production is a record 77.5 million tons, surpassing last year’s record by 5.0 million.Coarse Grains:  This month’s 2017/18 U.S. corn outlook is for lower supplies, reduced feed and residual use and exports, and a decline in ending stocks. Corn production is forecast at 14.2 billion bushels, down 102 million from the July projection. The season’s first survey-based corn yield forecast, at 169.5 bushels per acre, is 1.2 bushels lower than last month’s trend-based projection.Sorghum production is forecast 13 million bushels higher with the forecast yield 2.6 bushels per acre above last month’s projection.Exports are forecast down 25 million bushels, reflecting the increased competitiveness of supplies in Argentina and Brazil and the low level of new-crop outstanding sales. This month’s 2017/18 foreign coarse grain outlook is for virtually unchanged production, lower trade, and greater stocks relative to last month.Soybeans:  U.S. oilseed production for 2017/18 is projected at 130.9 million tons, up 3.9 million from last month mainly due to higher soybean production. Soybean production is forecast at 4,381 million bushels, up 121 million on higher yields. Harvested area is forecast at 88.7 million acres, unchanged from July. The first survey-based soybean yield forecast of 49.4 bushels per acre is 1.4 bushels above last month but 2.7 below last year’s record.Global oilseed production for 2017/18 is projected at 576.7 million tons, up 2.8 million, mainly on a 2.3-million-ton increase for soybean production. Global soybean exports for 2017/18 are up 1.5 million tons as higher U.S. exports are partly offset by lower Argentina shipments.Rice:  Total U.S. rice supplies are lowered 5.0 million hundred weight from last month due to a smaller crop and a slight reduction in beginning stocks. The 2017/18 U.S. rice production forecast is lowered 4.8 million hundred weight to 186.5 million based on the first survey-based yield forecast of the 2017/18 season.Sugar:  U.S. beet sugar production for the 2017/18 August-July crop year is increased by 89,500 short tons, raw value to 5.131 million based on area and sugarbeet yield forecasts made by NASS in Crop Production report. Early-season production occurring in August and September is projected to constitute 10.7 percent of the total.Cotton:  The first survey of U.S. 2017 crop production indicates a crop of 20.5 million bales, 1.5 million above last month and the largest production in 11 years. The larger crop is partially offset by lower beginning stocks which are reduced 400,000 bales to 2.8 million due to an increase in final 2016/17 exports.Livestock, Poultry, and Dairy:  The forecast for total meat production in 2017 is raised from last month, as increases in commercial beef and broiler production more than offset declines in pork and turkey production. The increase in beef production reflects relatively large cattle placements in the second quarter which will likely impact fourth quarter cattle slaughter. Second quarter broiler production is raised slightly based on June production data, but no change is made to the outlying quarters. Pork production is reduced on lower expected slaughter in the third quarter. Forecast turkey production is reduced on a slower-than-expected recovery in demand and relatively poor returns to producers. Egg production is increased modestly on recent hatchery data.The milk production forecasts for 2017 and 2018 are reduced from the previous month as slow growth in milk per cow more than offsets increases in dairy cow numbers.last_img read more

first_imgPrint Linkedin WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Advertisementcenter_img NewsJudge helps boy to get over Christmas crash memoriesBy Staff Reporter – December 11, 2015 815 Email Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A JUDGE has helped restore a Limerick boy’s faith in Santa.Such was the trauma suffered by the 11-year-old in a car crash on the way home from visiting Santa four years ago that he didn’t want to pay a return visit the following year as it reminded him too much of the accident.But a judge sitting at Limerick Circuit Civil Court has said that maybe it was time for him to make new Christmas memories.On December 17, 2011, the young boy, his father and sister, were travelling home after paying their annual visit to Santa’s Grotto, when they stopped at traffic lights on the Ballysimon Road.Their jeep was rear-ended by a car, causing them to collide with the car in front and the father was knocked unconscious. The two children suffered back and neck injuries but had fully recovered from their physical injuries within a number of months.Judge James O’Donohue was told that both children had suffered some residual psychological issues that persisted beyond their physical distress.At a previous hearing, the young boy’s sister was awarded €10,000 in general damages.Michael Collins BL said that while the injuries suffered by the young boy were not as serious as those of his sister, they arose out of the same set of circumstances and he had hoped for parity in the awards.A year after the accident, the young boy said that he didn’t want to go to visit Santa as it reminded him too much of the accident and what happened to his father.Noting that Mr Collins was accepting the €8,000 in general damages but was not “ecstatic about it”, Judge O’Donohue approved the offer and ordered that €1,000 be paid to the father before Christmas to be spent on the young boy.“Hopefully this will help make better memories”, he said.The balance of the award is to be held until the boy turns 18.
