Northern English and Scottish casinos to close under Covid-19 measures

first_imgCasino regulation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The UK government confirmed last night (20 October) that Greater Manchester will now move to the tier three rating – the highest in the tiered risk system – while it was announced today that South Yorkshire will also be upgraded to this level. “The region’s three Covid-secure casinos employ 270 people and pay £11.2m in tax to the Treasury every year. The government must come up with a financial package to ensure their long-term future.” “Closing betting shops in Greater Manchester will deny the Treasury up to £54m in tax, and deprive horseracing of vital millions in levy and media rights payments at a time when it is already suffering due to a lack of spectators,” the BGC said on Twitter. Email Address The restrictions, which include the closure of casinos, will now remain in place for the region until at least 2 November, when a new a five-tier system of virus alert levels will come into place. Northern English and Scottish casinos to close under Covid-19 measures BGC chief executive Michael Dugher yesterday wrote to UK Business Secretary Alok Sharma urging him to block the closure of gambling venues as part of the tier three local measures, but his demands have so far been unanswered. The Central belt area covers the five health board areas of Ayrshire and Arran, Forth Valley, Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Lanarkshire and also Lothian. Tags: Casino Covid-19 The new measures will come into effect in Greater Manchester from 12.01am on 23 October, with South Yorkshire to follow exactly 24 hours later. Gaming venues in Manchester and South Yorkshire will close after the government imposed new novel coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions on the regions, while Scotland will keep gambling facilities in the Central Belt closed for a further week. center_img Casinos and betting shops within Merseyside and Lancashire have already had to close after both regions were placed in the very high risk category for Covid-19. Tier three brings with it a number of restrictions similar to those seen during the UK-wide lockdown earlier this year, including casinos, betting shops, bingo halls and adult gaming centres being forced to close until the area is downgraded to at least tier two. Meanwhile, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced a new national restrictions will be introduced next month, amid increasing Covid-19 cases in the country.

(Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. 1 UK tech growth share that’s doing very well Everyone knows good tech growth shares only list in the US, right? Wrong. The UK has some great tech shares, but they often don’t trade on the same extremely high price-to-earnings multiples that US-listed peers do.One such high-performing UK-listed share is identity data specialist GB Group (LSE: GBG). Just yesterday, it lifted expectations. Its shares yesterday were up over 4%, on a day when the market was broadly flat.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…What did it announce?The technology group lifted its expectations as a result of solid recent performance. Management now says financial results for the full year will be ahead of consensus expectations with forecast revenues to be at least £213m, and operating profit above £53m.Conditions in 2021 so far have been favourable. The company has been able to under-promise and over-deliver (which is always a good combination), because of increased transaction volumes driven by the spike in Bitcoin market activity, as well as retail share trading in the United States and Europe.The company also said that it saw a positive impact from financial stimulus packages in the US.What could be the drivers of future growth?Increased buying online and more digital banking are two trends that I think are likely to keep boosting the shares. It’s a way to tap into the increased digitalisation in our lives and I think its an attractive share. It also has solid fundamentals, it’s profitable with high margins, so there’s a lot to like.The increasing move to digital is also driving demand for its key services – fraud prevention and detection plus identification services. This, along with increased compliance and cybersecurity demands within financial services should keep revenues ticking up. What are the risks facing this growth share?As with any tech share, there’s a technological risk. Technology can quickly become obsolete or a competitor can just offer a better service. Facebook killed off Bebo, Google made life very tough for Yahoo and there are so many other examples. Technology is a dynamic industry. There’s always a risk that key customers could move to a rival in future and often the change in fortunes is swift.  More immediately, there’s a risk that the conditions (which have allowed for the upgrade this week) now change and it loses the tailwinds that have helped it over the last two months.Finally, as with all technology stocks, there’s a valuation risk. Earnings growth at GB Group has been modest and it does trade at a P/E of around 38. For an innovative tech company, this is broadly in line with other UK tech shares, but it’s still high compared to other sectors.So while GB Group is a UK tech growth share that’s doing very well, I’m not sure I’ll be rushing to add it to my portfolio.center_img Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Andy Ross Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Ella apareció con su familia en una conferencia de prensa que tuvo lugar en la iglesia el 31 de mayo, tal como puede verse en un vídeo que se transmitió en directo por Facebook.“Quiero agradecerles a los miembros de esta iglesia y a los pastores su apoyo y su ayuda”, dijo en español Tobar Ortega. “Espero no pasar mucho tiempo aquí. Espero regresar pronto a mi hogar a abrazar a mis hijos y nietos y a estar con mi familia”.La congregación había dedicado más de un año al proceso de discernimiento antes de decidir convertirse en una iglesia santuario.“No hay absolutamente ninguna razón para que esta mujer sea arrancada de su familia y de su comunidad”, dijo el Rdo. Randall Keeney, rector de San Bernabé, en un comunicado de prensa del Comité de Servicio de Amigos Americanos. “Ella es una hija de Dios y le daremos albergue hasta que la ICE deje sin efecto su orden de deportación”.El moderno movimiento de iglesia santuario se remonta a la década del 80 del pasado siglo, cuando algunas iglesias comenzaron a abrir sus puertas a inmigrantes  que huían de las guerras en Centro y Sudamérica. Esto reapareció en el escenario nacional este año en respuesta a las políticas migratorias del gobierno de Trump. Algunas comunidades de inmigrantes se sienten inquietas en medio de informes de redadas de deportación en varias ciudades, con críticos que acusan a la nueva administración de acrecentar la persecución de inmigrantes que ofrecen poca o ninguna amenaza a la seguridad pública.Numerosas congregaciones episcopales a través del país han estado indagando si deben ofrecer santuario a tales inmigrantes, y algunas, como San Bernabé, se han comprometido a proporcionar ese amparo de ser necesario.El comunicado de prensa de la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte dice que la junta parroquial de San Bernabé aprobó por unanimidad recibir a Tobar Ortega luego que la congregación terminará su proceso de discernimiento sobre el tema del santuario.“Nuestras oraciones y nuestro compañerismo con la comunidad inmigrante nos condujo a este lugar”, dijo Keeney en el comunicado de prensa de la diócesis. “Nuestra simple esperanza es apoyar a Juana y a su familia en tanto ellos se aferran valientemente a la dignidad dada a ellos por Dios”.La congregación tiene el respaldo de la diócesis, dijo la Rvdma. Anne Hodges-Copple, obispa diocesana pro tempore de la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte, en el comunicado de prensa.“La Diócesis de Carolina del Norte está dispuesta a ayudar a nuestras comunidades de culto mientras exploran el llamado a ofrecer santuario a personas sujetas a las arduas realidades de un sistema de inmigración defectuoso”, dijo Hodges-Copple. “Tengo plena confianza que cada congregación tiene la capacidad de ser orientada por la oración, la investigación, la teología y la viabilidad para tomar sus propias decisiones respecto a la mejor utilización de sus recursos, incluidos sus edificios para la gloria de Dios y en amor y servicio de prójimos necesitados”.Más de 1.900 personas han firmado una petición en la Internet contra la orden de deportación de Tobar Ortega. Los que la apoyan se manifestaron el 31 de mayo frente a la oficina del senador federal Thom Tillis en High Point, pidiéndole que intervenga a su favor.Cuando Tobar Ortega llegó por primera vez a Estados Unidos, le denegaron su solicitud inicial de asilo, pero recibió permiso de trabajo y le permitieron quedarse durante seis años mientras apelaba la decisión sobre el asilo, dijo la diócesis. Regresó a Guatemala en 1999 para atender a su hija mayor que se encontraba enferma y, al volver a Estados Unidos, le revocaron su permiso de trabajo.  Ella se quedó en Estados Unidos y en los últimos años ha estado en contacto regular con las autoridades federales en tanto procuraba obtener una suspensión de expulsión, según la diócesis.Eso cambió el mes pasado, cuando la Agencia de Control de Inmigración y Aduanas, o ICE por su sigla en inglés, le dijo que se preparara para la deportación voluntaria.“Sólo les pedimos que le sigan concediendo la suspensión de expulsión, como la ICE ha hecho durante los últimos seis años”, dijo Lesvi Molina, la hija mayor de Tobar Ortega, en el comunicado de prensa del Comité de Servicio de Amigos Americanos. “Mi madre ha gastado alrededor de $17.000 a lo largo de los últimos 23 años en el intento de ajustar su estatus. Querríamos que hubiera una vía para que ella obtuviera su residencia permanente, pero la ICE sólo parece que quiere castigar[la], no trabajar con nosotros”.Además de su marido, dos de sus hijos son ciudadanos de EE.UU., según el Comité de Servicios de Amigos Americanos. Ella tiene otros dos hijos a los que les han permitido permanecer en Estados Unidos conforme a la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia, o DACA por su sigla en inglés, una normativa que le otorga consideración preferencial a inmigrantes que llegaron al país de niños y que reúnan ciertas condiciones.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

An opportunity missed in the Alaskan snow

first_img InspirationBy Charles Towne                        We never know when our lives may impact others. People are watching us, listening to us.  Are we living examples of God’s love?There is an unwritten law in the far north that folks help one another in time of difficulty.   Stranded in vehicles, people have died from exposure in the cold of an Alaskan winter, therefore when a stalled vehicle is spotted travelers usually go out of their way to render assistance.My daughter Faith, and her husband Steve, who was working on the Alaskan pipeline at the time, along with another couple, had left Fairbanks, Alaska far behind and were on their way to Valdez to visit Faith’s Uncle, Milford Taylor whom she had never met.Still several miles from Valdez they passed a red pick-up truck parked alongside the road with two men standing near it.  “We should stop, see if they need help!”  Steve suggested.  But the others vigorously protested.  After all, they didn’t know the men, and anything could happen way out there in the middle of nowhere.  Outvoted and overruled, Steve continued driving, until several miles further down the two-lane road their car inexplicably died leaving them stranded in the bitterly cold Alaskan winter.The men worked under the hood with no luck, achieving little more than frostbitten fingers while the girls shivered in the cold car that seemed to grow colder by the minute. A half hour passed and then an hour.The situation was looking desperate when hope was aroused… for faintly in the distance a vehicle could be heard! Perhaps help was on the way!Much to the traveler’s embarrassment that same red pick-up truck they had so callously passed earlier drew near; slowed and stopped.   The two strangers insisted that the ladies sit in the warm cab of their truck while they worked on the stalled vehicle. Thanks to the good Samaritans it wasn’t long before the car was running again and they were on their way.Steve drove in silence for a while before he said, “you know, it would have served us right if they hadn’t stopped.  I don’t believe I have ever seen a more obvious case of Christianity in action, and we didn’t even get their names. The next time I see a stalled vehicle I’m going to stop and offer my help.”Arriving in Valdez they soon found the Taylor’s address and pulled into the drive where they sat in stunned silence.There, parked in the driveway, was a red pick-up truck.  The very same red pick-up truck they had so callously passed earlier. Yes, the same red pick-up truck driven by the two men who had come to their rescue back on that cold stretch of Alaskan road.At Faith’s somewhat tentative knock a man answered the door.  Yes, you guessed it; it was their Good Samaritan, Faith’s uncle, Milford Taylor.Coincidence you say.  I wonder?“And some have entertained angels unawares.”  Hebrews 13:2.And, “Whatsoever ye do to the least of these… ye do unto me.”  Matthew 25:45.Dear God, please mold me into a vessel that can be used for your purpose.  Please help me to be there for others.  Help me to reach out when there is a need. As much as I hate to admit it, I am, by my very nature selfish, therefore you must be present in every portion of my life, every day of my life, and in every situation of my life.  Over-rule the self-serving tendencies that have controlled me all my life.  How many times have I rejected an opportunity to help one of your children when it just wasn’t… well… convenient?  Help me to be like Jesus.  Help me so that when others look into my eyes, they don’t see me, but they see Jesus in me.  This is my prayer, and I ask it in the Blessed and Holy name of Jesus, Amen.

I read someplace that if we would faithfully journal each day for two years, at the end of that two years we would have enough life experiences to write a book. It is a shame we don’t journal. How many adventures and mis-adventures to each of us live in a lifetime? I am so very pleased that you are pleased. God bless you. Chaz More memories recalled! I was a youth when grandpa called the house one sabbath morning and said he needed to borrow me after church and I should bring old clothes. After church I went with grandpa and he informed me that we were going to cut up a bunch of firewood and deliver it to an eldery 80 something year old lady who lived alone on a farm and only had a wood burning stove for heat. I told grandpa it was the sabbath and we were not supposed to do any work and thats when grandpa taught me something beyond value! He said, ” she is an old lady that needs our help, we can’t do it tommorow because it was going to be below zero tonight! Then he reminded me that Jesus said that loving one another was the most important rule”!Often I am reminded of that because often, what we know we should do is influenced by what we think we know! I wonder how many opportunities are lost because of imagined fears! Why do we think just because we are older we don’t have a guardian angel anymore?

A school teacher, Khan’s widow had been active in protesting against his abduction and murder six months later.“We call on the authorities in Islamabad and in the Tribal Areas to investigate this barbarous killing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “For the time being, it is not easy to know the motives for the bombing, which has bereaved this family for the second time. Hayatullah Khan’s murderers, whom the authorities never tried to identify, may have felt the need to eliminate an irritating witness.”The slain journalist’s brother, Ehsanullah Khan, confirmed his sister-in-law’s death to Reporters Without Borders. “She was sleeping on the floor in her bedroom while her five children were in another bedroom,” he said. “The bomb exploded at the foot of the wall of her bedroom.”He accused those who killed his brother of being behind his sister-in-law’s death. In the past, he has accused Pakistani military intelligence of being involved in his brother’s abduction, something the government always denied. But the authorities never published the findings of a Peshawar judge’s investigation.Ehsanullah Khan said his sister-in-law had received threats, which he had reported to former information minister Muhammad Ali Durani. But the authorities never took any measures to protect her.Hayatullah Khan’s bullet-riddled body was found six months after he was kidnapped in December 2005. Employed by the European Press Photo Agency (EPA) and several Pakistani media, he had – shortly before his abduction – proved that an Al-Qaeda chief had been killed in the Tribal Areas by a US missile.center_img Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder to go further PakistanAsia – Pacific Organisation November 17, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Slain tribal area journalist’s widow murdered Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists News January 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
