FTSE closes above 6,000 as traders pick miners and banks

first_img Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsapp FTSE closes above 6,000 as traders pick miners and banks BANKS and miners pushed Britain’s top share index higher yesterday, lifted by further proof that the economic recovery in the United States is on track. The FTSE 100 index closed up 42.25 points, or 0.7 per cent, at 6000.07, extending Tuesday’s 1.6 per cent rise.The index has recovered from a sharp dip at the beginning of the week as the focus has shifted from the political troubles in the Middle East to the health of the global economic recovery.Yesterday’s strong reading on the labour market in the United States backed up strong manufacturing data on Tuesday from the world’s biggest economy, and gave a steer ahead of Friday’s January US jobs report. The data shored up investor appetite for riskier assets such as mining stocks, which had been dented due to fears over the impact of the political unrest in Egypt.ENRC added 3.8 per cent after the miner reported a rise in fourth-quarter ferroalloy production.Miners Lonmin and Rio Tinto were also among the top risers yesterday, climbing 4.1 and 3.8 per cent respectively. Banks saw good support on the back of improved investor sentiment, with Standard Chartered up 1.7 per cent.There was promising news from the Europe, where Germany and France reached a consensus on steps to boost economic coordination within the Eurozone as part of a comprehensive anti-crisis package that will also see the scope of Europe’s bailout fund bolstered.“Investors are looking for more proper answers to all the issues that are still there from the financial crisis,” said Lothar Mentel, chief investment officer at Octopus Investments. “Once they have been answered, then those doom-mongers will have a less of an argument to cause these short-term stampedes,” he said, referring to recent volatility on the FTSE 100.Chipmaker CSR rose 2.9 per cent after its rival Broadcom speculated that Qualcomm, another chipmaker, could buy the British company to bolster its Bluetooth and FM radio range.Imperial Tobacco added 5.9 per cent after the cigarette maker surprised investors with a return to volume growth in the last quarter of 2010.“We think this should put a stop to the recent rot in the share price and create a platform for a more balanced ticket of top line delivery in FY11,” Investec Securities said in a note.Peer British American Tobacco added 1.4 per cent.On the second tier, Pace, the world’s largest maker of set-top boxes, gained 10.6 per cent after traders highlighted a newspaper report saying the British firm has won a key contract with an Indian pay-television provider.On the downside, defensives such as International Power, down 3.4 per cent, were among the top fallers yesterday. National Grid shed 2.1 per cent as Investec kept its “sell” rating on the utility, saying Ofgem’s seminar on Tuesday only served to highlight the regulatory uncertainty facing the industry.Drugmaker AstraZeneca and TUI Travel fell 2.8 and 1.8 per cent respectively after going ex-dividend.GKN dropped 4.9 per cent after broker Credit Suisse suggested that their profit margins were at risk from rising commodity prices. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure Solution Share Wednesday 2 February 2011 7:28 pm whatsapplast_img read more

Malta regulator issues integrity guidance amid Covid-19 crisis

first_imgEsports Regions: Europe Southern Europe Malta AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has published new guidance for operators to help safeguard integrity during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, while the regulator has cancelled Bimbabet’s licence after it was found to have breached regulations. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Esports Legal & compliance Sports betting The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has published new guidance for operators to help safeguard integrity during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis, while the regulator has cancelled Bimbabet’s licence after it was found to have breached regulations.The regulator said that as most sports events have been postponed, this will spur more operators to focus on other betting markets, which it said have different risk profiles to traditional sports.The MGA highlighted esports as one market that is set to experience an increase in interest during the period of sporting shutdown. Like other sports, it said, esports has varying levels of professional, semi-professional and amateur tournaments, and while many events are run in a professional manner, others may not be so carefully arranged, and this could create integrity issues.The regulator has therefore has released guidance to assist licensed operators with esports betting, pointing out that events are currently only run online, with the the standard integrity checks carried out at physical events not necessarily being carried out.The MGA advised operators to ensure matches are not pre-recorded. Risk mamangement teams were told to be mindful of the fact that games are not always broadcast in real time, and there is often a pre-set delay between the actual match and public broadcast.Customers should be made aware of the distinction between esports and virtual sports, while operators should look into whether events benefit from integrity controls and if participants are professional when deciding on what markets to offer, it added.Operators were also advised to seek information about participants and officials involved in events, as well as maintain their betting integrity and fraud checks, including making sure that those involved in the events are not placing bets.All suspicious betting activity should be reported to the MGA, while any other suspicious activity not related to betting related should be reported to relevant sports governing bodies or the event organiser.In addition, the MGA advised tournament organisers, broadcasters and sports governing bodies to revise any policies regarding misuse of inside information to include also any participants or officials involved in their events.In separate news, the MGA has cancelled Bimbabet Limited’s licence after ruling that the operator breached a number of regulations, including failing to pay its licence fee.Bimbabet had been operating its Bimbabet.com website under an B2C gaming service licence, but the cancellation, effective from today (6 April), means it is no longer authorised to carry out any gaming operations.The operator must also not register new customers or accept new deposits, but has been ordered by the MGA to retain and provide all players with access to their accounts, as well as refund any outstanding monies to customers.Bimbabet was found in breach of sections C and I of regulation 9 in the Gaming Compliance and Enforcement Regulations.Section I relates to the failure to pay relevant annual licence fees or compliance contribution fees, while section C covers the failure to submit a key functions list, audited financial statements for 2018 or interim financial statements for 2019 to the MGA.Bimbabet may be permitted to appeal the decision.

This mosque on the suburban periphery of the port of Chittagong in Bangladesh seeks to fulfil the traditional role of a mosque as both a place of spirituality and as a gathering place for the community. The architect began by identifying the essential elements of a mosque to create a new form and articulation for a typology that goes back for a millennium and a half. The result is this monolithic and spare mosque, pared down to two identical cuboid structures.Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS InanRecommended ProductsCeramicsApavisaTiles – JewelsWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWood Boards / HPL PanelsLamitechLamitech high pressure plastic laminateCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiThe first is the front court, its heavy masonry walls punctuated with low, wide openings onto the surrounding landscape, with a large eyelike opening above. In the second volume, the naturally lit mihrab wall is balanced by an iconic, cut dome. While the apertures give a sense of openness and draw in light and ventilation by day, by night they allow light to shine out of the mosque like a beacon. With its stark, geometric clarity, the Chandgaon mosque stands apart from many such structures that have reduced architectural features associated with the usual mosque type to the level of kitsch. It makes a definitive architectural statement in a different direction, pointing to the contemporary, to a desire to live in spaces that reflect the universal values of the present day.Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS InanProject gallerySee allShow lessMaple Leaf Square Canopy / United Visual ArtistsArticlesRenaissance Marriot Hotel in Paris / Atelier Christian de PortzamparcArticles Share Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS Inan+ 10 Share Chandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob ChowdhurySave this projectSaveChandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury CopyAbout this officeKashef Chowdhury – URBANAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasChittagongReligious Architecture3D ModelingBangladeshPublished on October 15, 2010Cite: “Chandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury” 15 Oct 2010.

General strike renews anti-banker struggle in Greece

first_imgThe Greek labor movement held a 24-hour general strike Nov. 12 that basically shut the country down.The strike closed the Athens metro and suburban railway and cut service on bus, trolley and train routes. It stranded the ferries in port linking the Ionian islands, which are currently flooded with refugees traveling from Turkey to Europe. It cancelled domestic air flights.The strike shut museums and archaeological sites, as well as schools and pharmacies. Hospitals handled only emergencies. Many privately owned shops also closed.According to the Nov. 12 British Guardian, this was the first general strike since Syriza took office in January 2015 and the 41st since Greece’s financial crisis began five years ago.In addition to the strike, there were three major rallies in Athens. One was led by the Greek Public Sector Union, ADEDY, and the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE). Another was led by the Alll Workers’ Militant Front (PAME), which is close to the Greek Communist Party. The third was led by a coalition of small leftist parties and anarchists, whom the cops attacked. Police reported 25,000 protesting in Athens, while a coordinated demonstration in Thessaloníki drew 10,000.PAME organized 71 strike demonstrations all over the country, drawing the unemployed, pensioners, self-employed, poor farmers, as well as youth and women from the Federation of Greek Women.The mostly foreign big banks were demanding changes to make it easier for them to foreclose on the tens of thousands of mortgages in arrears. The Syriza government, led by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, gave in to the creditors. Popular anger against the new measures grew so intense that the Syriza party, despite its role in running the government, called on workers to participate in the demonstrations of ADEDY-GSEE against its own anti-people political line.PAME called this a “brazen display of hypocrisy.” Comments on social media made the same point. One, for example, asked: “Do we march with Alexis to overthrow Tsipras, or do we march with Tsipras to overthrow Alexis?” (BFMTV.com)Greece has been in a major capitalist depression for more than six years, and the austerity its creditors demand worsen this depression. Wages have been cut by 30 percent, pensions by even more, and taxes on everything are going up. But the big German and English banks want every last penny of the debt — even if paying it destroys Greece’s economy and leads to a social explosion.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
