Further acquisitions are understood to be in the offing, aided by a partnership with independent capital markets adviser Akur Capital. That agreement, as reported in July, sees Akur act as the sole advisor to Esports Entertainment in relation to M&A activity in the online gambling sector. The $43m deals have significantly expanded the range and breadth of services the business offers, following a flurry of recent M&A. In July Esports Entertainment finalised a deal for real-money betting and gaming operator Argyll Entertainment, following this with an agreement to acquire assets owned by Flip Sports, a peer-to-peer competitive gaming solutions provider, in September. This activity followed in the wake of the business completing its listing on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange in April. While the business had originally expected to post revenue of $13m for its 2021 fiscal year, it plans to update projections once the Helix and ggCircuit deals close. The business’s technology component has been bolstered by the deal for ggCircuit, which provides cloud-based management for LAN centers, a tournament platform and integrated wallet and point of sale solutions for enterprise customers. As well as working closely with a number of major – but unnamed – publishers, LANduel is also working on a skill-based wagering pilot program with the New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement.

But the news for pay TV is not that good.A report by Digital TV Research has predicted that the two broadcast streams will be heading in opposite direction in terms of their future prospects. Market probabilities over the next five years hold a lots of promise for the OTT industry, which is expected to reach $159 billion by 2024 –more than 100% growth over the $68 billion global revenue last year.

India will move up from sixth to third place over this period. The second biggest winnerAlso Read: Real Madrid profit increases despite not much gain revenueswill be Indonesia, with a $786 million gain,” the report quotes Digital TV Research principal analyst Simon Murray as saying.The research forecasts 81 million additional pay TV subscribers between 2018 and 2024 – up by 8%. This will take the global total to 1.10 billion. Based on forecasts for 138 countries, the number of pay TV subs passed 1 billion in 2018.The global revenues from streaming video services this year are projected to reach $85 billion – up by more than 25% from the $68 billion recorded in 2018. SVOD revenues will climb by $51 billion between 2018 and 2024 to take its total to $87 billion, states the report.“Despite losing market share to SVOD, there is still plenty of AVOD growth left. AVOD revenues will increase by $34 billion between 2018 and 2024 to take its total to $56 billion. Several high profile AVOD-funded platforms are due to start operations soon,” says Murray.The report has covered 138 countries.

The fact that this proportion is down from 71% in 2018 establishes the rest of the world will grow at a faster rate.OTT revenues will exceed $1 billion in 18 countries by 2024; up from 10 countries in 2018.The US will remain the dominant territory by some distance, with its share of global revenues staying just under 40%. Digital TV Research forecasts that revenues inthe US will more than double between 2018 and 2024 – adding nearly $34 billion to reach $61 billion. China will add $15 billion over the same period to reach to $27 billion. The US and China will control 56% of the global total by 2024.“China and the US together accounted for 63 per cent of the global total in 2018.

Yesterday saw the BT Group (LSE: BT-A) share price hit levels not seen since the 2009 financial crisis. Today, I want to explain why I think this could be a great buying opportunity for long-term investors.Keep calmI believe it’s times like this that lay the foundations for long-term investing success. In my view, the current sell-off is providing great buying opportunities for investors who can stay focused on the long term.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…I’ve not sold any shares. And I won’t, whatever happens in the coming weeks. What I am doing is continuing to make regular share purchases with my monthly savings. My belief is that companies which were okay a month ago are still okay now. All that’s changed is that their share price has fallen due to a change in the market mood.Admittedly, some companies could be hit badly by the coronavirus outbreak. But I think BT should be pretty safe. In my view, the current weakness could be a buying opportunity.I like the BT share priceBT may not be the perfect company. It must continually spend money on network upgrades, and carries a rather large pension deficit. At the moment, the rollout of EE’s 5G mobile service and the expansion of the Openreach’s fibre broadband network are placing some pressure on the group’s finances.However, I believe that beneath the surface is a profitable and sustainable business. Last year for example, BT generated an adjusted operating profit margin of 16.4%. The equivalent figure for rival Vodafone was just 11.4%.I believe BT’s top management pairing of CEO Philip Jansen and chairman Jan du Plessis will be able to steady the group’s finances and return the telecoms group to growth.Is now the time to buy?The FTSE 100 slump has seen the BT share price fall to around 125p. The last time BT shares were this cheap was during the 2009 financial crisis.In my opinion, such a low price tag provides an attractive margin of safety. With the shares trading on less than six times forecast earnings, the market is already pricing in a lot of bad news.How safe is the BT dividend?The other big question market relates to BT’s dividend. Based on last year’s payout of 15.4p per share, the stock currently offers a dividend yield of 11.5%. This payout is expected to be maintained for the year ending 31 March.However, BT’s management has signalled a dividend cut may be needed to fund investment and manage the group’s debt levels. City analysts have cut their dividend forecast for 2020/21 to 10.8p per share.This seems sensible to me. A cut will be a disappointment for long-term shareholders who paid a higher price for their shares. But if you’re buying at 125p, a dividend of 10.8p will still provide a yield of more than 8%.I think the sell-off has left BT stock trading at a level which provides an attractive income with a low risk of further losses. I rate the shares as a buy and hope to add to my holding in the coming weeks. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Perhaps this will stimulate congregational development and help grow the church on the local level, a process mostly ignored or forgotten by many dioceses. Thank you, Diocesan Council of South Florida. [Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Florida has decided to refund $175,000 to its 76 congregations.The decision, Bishop Dabney Smith said in a recent letter to vestries and bishop’s committees, was prompted by nearly 100 percent parish giving to the diocese in 2011.“We have attained a new culminating point in this ongoing labor towards maintaining a healthy, well-functioning diocese,” Smith said. “In 2011 alone, our congregations prioritized their participation by contributing apportionment on a monthly basis, with all but 2 percent paid by year’s end.”The diocese normally bases its annual budget in part on up to 10 percent in uncollectable apportionments.The $175,000 is roughly 75 percent of one month’s assessment, according to a diocesan press release.The Diocesan Council decided during its January meeting to make a “celebratory, one-time decision to share the joy of this financial reality,” Smith added.The rebate will be available to any congregation that paid its full assessment for 2011 and congregations have been given until Feb. 29 to pay that amount in full. Congregations must apply for the rebate, which will be calculated based on its percentage of the total operating 2011 apportionment.

Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK By Leigh Anne WilliamsPosted Mar 25, 2013 The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Tags Activist Vidalina Morales is traveling across Canada discussing mining issues in her home country of El Salvador. Photo: Council of Canadians[Anglican Journal] When El Salvadoran anti-mining activist Vidalina Morales de Gámez travels across Canada to speak to Canadians about the effects of gold mining and the activities of Canadian mining corporations in her country, she brings photos.A photo of the rust-colored San Sebastian River speaks volumes about the contamination it suffered, and died from, as a result of artisanal mining in the 1980s.Then there are the photos of Salvadoran anti-mining activists Marcelo Rivera, Ramiro Rivera and Dora Sorto, who were murdered in 2009. Their cases, and that of another activist’s son who disappeared last year, remain unsolved, but their photos whisper about the courage required to say no and fight for the land and the people.Morales, a mother of five children, is a member of the National Roundtable against Metal Mining in El Salvador (La MESA). Since 2006, she has worked on mining issues as an organizer in her home province of Cabañas. With help from a translator, she told a small audience at a March 19 event co-sponsored by the ecumenical social justice group Kairos in Toronto that opposition to mining began to gather momentum in El Salvador in 2004.The event moderator, Karin Wells, a CBC journalist who has produced a documentary on the mining issue in El Salvador, mentioned that one independent report said 95 per cent of the country is geologically unstable. The country has also suffered landslides due to deforestation, and Morales said climate change has caused yet more damage.In 2007, the Salvadoran government began to put restrictions on the mining industry, as a result of efforts made by La MESA and other civil society groups. A Canadian company, Pacific Rim, previously had been granted an exploration license, but the government later rejected its application to develop a mine.Cabañas is one of the poorest provinces in El Salvador, Morales said, and mining companies have tried offering jobs to people and making alliances with various local authorities. “That was a part of their strategy to gain the support of the community members,” she said.The situation escalated in 2006. “We began to receive threats and violence against our organization. They called us delinquents and [said] that we were against development,” Morales said.“In 2009, on June 18, Marcelo Rivera, one of the first leaders we had, was murdered,” she recounted. “Six months later, Ramiro Rivera [no relation to Marcelo] was also murdered. Six days later, Dora Sorto was murdered. She was 36 years old, she had six children and was eight months pregnant at the time. She was cruelly killed, just like the squadrons of death that were used in the 1980s. Last June, they disappeared the son of one of our leaders.”“So, as Salvadorans, we are confronting violence and loss of life, but these companies decided to create lawsuits against the state,” Morales said. “They did this through the International Centre for Dispute Resolution. There are two lawsuits that are taking place right now. One from Pacific Rim, and the other from Commerce Group.” Pacific Rim is asking for more than $100-million in damages and for lost profits. “This is money that we’ve never seen invested in our communities,” said Morales.A statement on Pacific Rim’s website states its position that the government in El Salvador invited and encouraged the company’s exploration, discovery and delineation of gold deposits in the country. Pacific Rim said that it submitted a plan for the mine that exceeded all applicable standards, and the government’s failure to grant permits to mine the gold has resulted in a loss of profits.Stuart Trew, a trade campaigner for the NGO the Council of Canadians, another sponsor of the event, spoke after Morales. He explained that El Salvador is not alone in a situation that pits the right of a sovereign country to make policy decisions to protect its environment and public health against the rights of foreign investors.Free trade agreements and foreign investment protection treaties have given multinational corporations more rights than citizens and governments, Trew said.Similar investor lawsuits have exploded in the past 10 years, he said, “from a handful in the early 1990s to about 450 known cases today.” He noted that Ecuador lost one of the most expensive cases he has heard of when it was ordered to pay close to $1.77-billion to Occidental Petroleum after its government of Ecuador cancelled an oil and gas concession.Trew said that Canada is currently facing about $5.5-billion in investor-state lawsuits. One example involves a $250-million suit from an American company after the government of Quebec placed a moratorium on hydro-fracking due to environmental concerns.“I think we have a double duty to fight investor-state arbitration,” Trew said. “The double duty is we do it in solidarity with our friends in El Salvador and around the world, but also for our own sake in Canada, so we and people around the world can no longer be extorted by companies who claim to have the right to dig, to build or to profit, despite what communities think of their projects.”Trew added that there has been some backlash against investor arbitration recently: “First [from within] the legal community itself, arbitrators are coming out and speaking out against it.” There has been a global call for states to review, reform or withdraw from such investment treaties, he said. Trew also noted Australia’s recent decision to no longer sign such treaties.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Tampa, FL Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH March 25, 2013 at 7:10 pm Your poor El Salvadorian activists! This is escerpt from testimony given to US State Department during one of their investigations. “November 14, 2006 About 150 agitators entered our private property near El Limon at our Santa Rita exploration project. They were led by Francisco Pineda of ADES and Vidalina Morales. The crowd was agitated by Francisco Pineda, David Pereira and Nelson Ventura. They damaged the drill rig and destroyed the costly drill samples that are the product of this expensive type of drilling. Mr. Pineda was standing on the drill rig attempting to incite the crowd to burn the drill machine to the ground. They did not accommodate. Pacific Rim employees assisted the drilling company in the disassembling and demobilizing of the drill rig. Pacific Rim employee Luis XXXXXX life was threatened in the process. The drillers and the Pacific Rim employees evacuated without retaliating in any way.” This was in 2006 when the company was under Governement mandate to make exploration expenditures. Few, if any of the protesters were from the local comunity! Many locals and employees of the mining compnay have been threatened by these people. Again, all investigations have found no fault with the company for any of the violence. Who do you think benifits from the violence and the lies about the companies involvement? You should do a real investigation instead of just taking the word of a bunch of people who probably have more blood on their hands than anyone else involved!

The main access is located between these very different volumes. A pergola of wisteria defines the space that links the pre-existing and new stuctures.

This is an agglomeration of buildings that interact and intersect, defining private spaces for the family and also more public areas for parties and receptions.Save this picture!SectionsProject gallerySee allShow lessSYN City ExhibitionEventKotor Architectural Prison Summer SchoolEvent Share Houses Building Contractor: Italy “COPY” Structural Design: Studio Ing Cantamessa ArchDaily Impresa Sandro Penna ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/361839/fisherman-s-house-elastico-fisherman-s-house Clipboard CopyAbout this officeELASTICOOfficeFollowCesario CarenaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAstiHousesItalyPublished on April 18, 2013Cite: “Fisherman’s House / ELASTICO + Cesario Carena” 18 Apr 2013.

WW photo: Kris HamelMay Day in Detroit focused around the ongoing struggle against emergency management, the forced city bankruptcy and the role of the banks in the economic crisis. A coalition of 35 organizations, including the Moratorium NOW! Coalition, Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management, the local chapter of National Action Network, the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute and others, came together for a day of actions in support of labor and the movement to reclaim the political direction of this majority African-American city.Under the theme of “No Business As Usual,” the day began at 8 a.m. with an ecumenical gathering at the United Auto Workers Local 600 hall. This event was broadcast live over TV 33, an African-American owned network based in Highland Park, Mich., which simulcasts on the largest cable network in the region. Speakers at the event included former Detroit city councilwoman JoAnn Watson; Rev. David Bullock, of Greater St. Matthew’s Baptist Church in Highland Park; and David Sole, of Stop the Theft of Our Pensions Committee, among others.After the morning rally, a car caravan departed UAW Local 600 and traveled down Vernor Street in the center of the Latino/a immigrant community as an act of solidarity in support of immigrant rights. The caravan arrived downtown at Hart Plaza at noon, where it was welcomed by cheers of hundreds who had already gathered there.At the rally at Hart Plaza many retirees and community residents spoke out against the stealing of the vote (when the governor reimposed the emergency management law after voters statewide overturned it), the threats against pensioners and the role of the banks in the destruction of the city.A section of the demonstration moved into the street and blocked traffic on Jefferson Avenue, where hundreds of vehicles were coming off the Lodge freeway. Although police attempted to encourage the demonstrators to leave, protesters were able to hold the area for over 20 minutes, creating a traffic jam throughout downtown.Into the streets: ‘Make the banks pay!’By this time marchers had taken the street on Woodward Avenue, the city’s main thoroughfare, where they began to march into the heart of the financial district. Protesters began to chant “Make the banks pay” as they marched to the Detroit headquarters of Chase Bank.Demonstrators moved onto the steps of the bank while a large contingent of protesters walked right into the building, continuing their chanting. Within seconds the corridor on the first floor was filled with angry demonstrators. Management and security personnel moved rapidly to lock the doors leading to sensitive areas of the building.Militant protesters held the building for several minutes and then marched out onto Fort Street, where they and hundreds of others headed toward the federal courthouse, the place where the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history is being litigated. Protesters held the entire block of West Lafayette in front of the courthouse. A brief rally there condemned the entire process of forced bankruptcy and demanded that the state constitution’s protections for pensions be upheld in court proceedings.Next stop: ‘Show Orr the door!’Marchers then headed up Washington Boulevard to the Book Cadillac Westin Hotel where state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr is housed in a $4,200-a-month penthouse. A section of the demonstration militantly burst through the lobby doors, chanting “Show Orr the door! Show Orr the door!”Protesters marched around the entire lobby and first floor area of the five-star hotel, denouncing Orr and demanding that he be forced to leave the city. Police arrived several minutes later but did not make any arrests. After 10 or 15 tense minutes, protesters decided to leave the building and continue the march.Capitalist interests in the city have embarked upon a massive downtown gentrification program. Seniors, workers and people with disabilities are being forced out while a new social layer of corporate managers and business people is being moved into buildings where rents have been raised by 400 percent to 500 percent.The May Day march also went to the Capital Park district of downtown where gentrification and dislocation are in high gear. Chanting “Stop gentrification!” the demonstrators stood outside “The Albert,” a row of buildings where people have been evicted to make room for high-income business people connected with ruling-class interests of Quicken Loans, Little Caesars Pizza and other capitalists who are seeking to displace thousands living in the areas of downtown, Brush Park and the Cass Corridor.National demonstration in Detroit July 24A rally was then held at Grand Circus Park, which has recently been placed under private management by banking mogul and large-scale real estate owner Dan Gilbert.A representative of the Moratorium NOW! Coalition was described by CBS News: “One speaker with a bullhorn said protesters were there to chase Mike Ilitch, Roger Penske, Chase Bank, and other corporate entities out of town. ‘This is our city, we built this city, we built this economy and we’re not playing, we are sick and tired of these lying dogs,’ the speaker said. ‘Our ancestors ended slavery, they built the UAW,’ he added.”May Day activities concluded with a meal and speak-out at Central United Methodist Church across the street from the park. Workers, retirees and youth spoke to the need to escalate the struggle against emergency management and the banks.Many May Day participants who are city retirees said they will vote no on the Plan of Adjustment, which is the austerity program for the further enrichment of the banks and corporations at the expense of the workers.A call has gone out across the U.S. for people to come to Detroit on July 24, the tentative opening day of the bankruptcy court trial on the Plan of Adjustment. A mass demonstration has been called against austerity and against the attacks on pensions and public assets in the city, state and across the country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
