Casino & games 888 Holdings has reported a rise in customer activity across its casino and poker services, but the online gambling operator warned its sports betting business is likely to suffer as a result of cancelled events worldwide.In a trading update, published rather than the scheduled full-year results announcement, 888 said the overall business had performed well in the year to date and was in line with the board’s expectations, with average daily revenue up 18% on the comparable prior year period.Casino and sport verticals both saw average daily revenue increase 24% on the previous year. New customer acquisition across the group’s B2C business was 20% higher year-on-year, while B2C average daily deposits climbed 32%.888 also noted that despite the current situation regarding novel coronavirus (Covid-19), it has seen evidence of increased customer activity across both its casino and poker products.The operator said this could help compensate for the disruption to its sports betting business, which has been hit by the suspension or cancellation of almost all major sports events around the world.Should severe disruption to global sporting events continue until September 2020, 888 said that this is likely to lead to a “high single digit millions of dollars” decline in group earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) in the current financial year. Sports betting was responsible for 16% of 888’s total group revenue in 2019 it noted.888 added that in the event of a prolonged period of global macro-economic uncertainty, consumer spending across its online gaming product verticals may also decline.Meanwhile, the operator said that as people are now spending more time at home and face increased stress from economic uncertainty, its vigilance on safe gambling and preventing gambling-related harm becomes more important.As such, 888 said it will continue to offer customers support and is proactively communicating with players to inform them about its safe gambling tools that allow them to limit and control their play.In addition, 888 will continue to leverage its Observer software to scan player data and identify potential areas of concern to help prevent gambling harm.“As a purely online operator with diversified brands across product verticals and geographies, a strong balance sheet with $99.5m (£85.3m/€91.8m) of cash and cash equivalents at the 2019-year end, and a proven track record of delivering operational efficiencies, the board is confident in 888’s ability to manage these challenges.“Underpinned by the strength of 888’s technology, its growing customer base and the group’s talented and committed teams, the board continues to see a number of significant growth opportunities for the group which it is confident of progressing during 2020 and beyond.”The update comes after 888 yesterday (23 March) announced it was to delay the publication of its full-year results for 2019, after the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) requested all listed businesses observe a two-week moratorium on the publication of preliminary financial results.The operator was due to public its preliminary results for the year through to 31 December today, but will instead confirm a new date for the results in due course, subject to any further FCA guidance.The FCA said the coronavirus pandemic had created “unprecedented practical challenges” for listed businesses and auditors, and the practice of issuing preliminary financial statements ahead of audited results was adding unnecessary additional pressure.

He played himself in, taking only five runs off his first six deliveries, before hitting two confident consecutive fours off Malinda Pushpakumara in the 16th over.Kings needed 30 off the last 14 balls, so it looked like it was going down to the wire, but Qais made it a cakewalk. He would go on hit five sixes off the seven balls that followed, making sure he never lost the strike.It was devastating hitting. Lahiru Kumara was launched back into the sightscreen, and next over, Anwar Ali was brutalised – a six over long off, and two in the wide long-on/cow corner region coming off his next three deliveries.There was a yorker dot-ball in between, but the next ball was back-of-a-length, and that disappeared a distance beyond the deep square leg fence to end the match.Kings won with seven balls to spare. That six also took Qais to his first ever 50 in senior competitive cricket. It had come off 22 balls.

TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ November 3, 2017 at 12:43 am It would be less confusing if Bishop Dietsche did not include terms such as “Muslim” and “Islamic community”. We are all shocked and unhappy with the killings done by suspect Sayfullo Saipov. It would be more realistic to portray the killings done by a soldier of ISIS than a Muslim. Such incident will undoubtedly force the US govt to re-examine their immigration policy but this will not be used as pretext of punishing the Islamic community as a whole. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC November 1, 2017 at 8:58 pm I am an Episcopalian born and raised and I have friends who are Muslim. I agree with the bishop sentiments most Muslims are not mileage that the religion of Islam teaches peace. The best analogy I have ever heard is that Islamic extremism (like ISIS Al Queda other Islamic terrorist groups) is to Islam what the Ku Klux Klan is to Christianity. Yes Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves. But yes in times like this it’s easier said than done but nothing ever worth having or doing is ever easy. Turn to prayer turn to the church for comfort it’s not an empty sentiment. It’s a way to gather and start to heal and show the terrorist they didn’t win. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Martinsville, VA November 1, 2017 at 5:13 pm Quentin Durward’s response encapsulates my thoughts exactly so I need not add to them. November 2, 2017 at 1:18 pm I agree completely with Quentin Durward. Church leaders who accuse members of their flock of hate-mongering because they believe in a tougher response to such outrages than reassuring words and flowers should be embarrassed by their own naivete.

New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Tampa, FL Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI November 1, 2017 at 11:33 am These press releases have become formulaic. I’m tired of hearing the same vacuous musings and calls to prayer from Church leaders in denial. There are some very sick people in world. We can’t help them and they can’t help themselves if we are all in denial. Implying that innocent people are dying because we don’t understand each other is crap. Love is very powerful but love is not passive. We should pray that our leaders find strength to stand up proactively against terrorism instead of meekly enabling it with lame excuses. November 6, 2017 at 3:06 pm Doug Desper is correct. Sadly, it seems there are fewer and fewer Episcopal clergymen who do not subscribe to the “few bad eggs” argument and those who do not largely keep quiet because they fear being ostracized and possibly hurt professionally. This is an unfortunate situation that clearly is among the reasons why so many faithful Episcopalians are leaving the Church. How many more horrors like New York will it take before there is any chance of the tide turning? And will there be any Episcopal Church left by that time worthy of saving?

The country I come from has seen Muslim invasions for over thousand years and that too with greater brutality with repeated invasions. Honest historians have written much about this. I agree with you that Muslims have their own understanding as to how infidels ought to be treated. Read about the treatment of minorities in Islamic countries including Pakistan and Bangladesh. Surprisingly in India, often times, Hindus are made to feel second class citizens with respect to the Muslims over certain rights! I won’t be surprised if in near future, Christians in US will be made to feel as second class citizens.US should do what is best for the security of this nation and its citizens.

How difficult it is to be away from our city when it is in crisis!I join with all in our diocese, all people of faith, and all our city in mourning the lives lost and the chaos visited upon our own streets. I know that opportunities for prayer are already being planned for tomorrow and following days. I urge you to go and be with one another, and pray with one another, and turn a common face toward the God who is balm for weary and broken hearts.I know that in every church the victims of this violence will be remembered in prayer today, tomorrow and at our Sunday liturgies. Pray also for our country, and for God’s guidance for our leaders. Pray for peace. Pray for understanding across religions, cultures and political philosophies. And pray for ourselves, that we may guard our hearts, that we may by the grace of God respond to hatred with love, and violence with peace.Once again it is crucial that we do not extrapolate from the violence committed by one man to condemn or blame the larger Islamic community, or to view all Muslims as dangerous. Faithful, peaceful Muslims are as bereaved and angry about these killings as anyone else in our city, and we know the Islamic community to be our friends.Now is the time when we who follow a God of peace, across our several religions, must stand together against all forces of destruction. Indeed, the love of peace and the renunciation of the evil powers which corrupt and destroy are contained within the heart of our baptismal life. That is who we are.I long to return to you, and pray for you every one in this hour of our testing. And always I remain Yours,The Rt. Rev. Andrew ML DietscheBishop of New York Tony Oberdorfer says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Featured Jobs & Calls November 3, 2017 at 2:51 pm Jawaharlal Prasad sounds like a decent person but I must disagree with him in distinguishing between a soldier of ISIS and a regular Muslim. Obviously there are many reasonably disposed Muslims around the world. But in my understanding the Koran specifies that no one can be a really good Muslim unless he commits himself to killing non-Muslim infidels who are unwilling to convert. Since most if not all of the terrorists such as Sayfullo Saipov “went terrorist” AFTER coming to the United States despite being thoroughly “vetted,” common sense suggests the advisability of a blanket ban on immigrants from certain Middle Eastern countries (with rare exceptions) until such time as the Islamic threat is finally over.

Lay aside any blame for the moment and simply observe the cultural realities of those countries where Islam dominates. Terror attack after terror attack has the same formulary by wishful apologists who rush to state that there are moderate Muslims. Of course there are – and those people are wonderful, but they will also honestly tell you that they dare not stick their necks out too far to challenge the majority view of Islam. Would they be welcomed in many of those nations where caliphate Islam dominates? Would they be targeted as apostates, even here in some of America’s mosques and schools? We have now gone well past the “few bad eggs” argument that tries to prove that cultural Islam has random lone wolves and that they do not represent true Islam. It begs to be asked, “How many thousands have made up the ‘bad eggs’ basket so far?” Press Release Service Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Dn.

Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ Facebook The meteorite is the largest found in Texas and the second largest in the United States. (Shane Battis/TCU 360) Twitter ReddIt printThe meteorite is the largest ever discovered in Texas and the second largest in the United States. TCU’s School of Geology, Energy & the Environment has it in a vault and plans put it on display in the Monnig Meteorite Gallery. (Shane Battis/TCU 360)TCU is now in possession of a piece of history from far, far away.The Monnig Meteorite Gallery in the Sid Richardson Building bought the largest chrondite meteorite ever discovered in Texas. Dr. Rhiannon Mayne, the gallery curator, said the approximately 760 pound rock traveled from the asteroid belt all the way to Clarendon, Texas, where it was found by two ranchers.The fact that the artifact was discovered in Texas played a large part in why TCU was able to add it to its collection, according to Mayne. She said DeeDee and Frank Hommel felt strongly about their big find remaining in the state, and the gallery was ready to make the purchase.Mayne declined to say how much money was spent on the meteorite, but did say that it was paid for with the endowment left by Oscar E. Monnig, who donated his collection to TCU between 1978 and 1986.Monnig died in 1999, according to the gallery’s website. The new meteorite is part of his ongoing legacy.“I kind of think that this is something Oscar really would have loved to have in the collection and so it’s great to be able to do that,” Mayne said.DeeDee and Frank Hommel found the giant meteorite on their ranch in Clarendon, Texas. (Photo courtesy of Ruben Garcia)She said it’ll be a great showpiece for the gallery as well as a subject for scientific research. For now, it rests in a vault where TCU 360 was able to view it.Mayne smiled at the meteorite on the floor of the vault.“It’s so big,” she said. “It’s interesting when you can think ‘Man, this hit the Earth, and it came from the asteroid belt.’ It’s sometimes easy to forget that context with a really small piece.”The rock is already massive. Its total weight is still unknown as parts of it haven’t been found. Mayne said the pressure of falling through the Earth’s atmosphere caused the meteorite to break into several pieces that are still being searched for near the Clarendon crash site.Nona Batiste, the gallery assistant and educator, said Texas is a “hotspot” for meteorite sightings. Its open spaces and little light pollution makes it much easier to spot objects falling from the sky and notice out of place rocks on the ground.She was visibly excited when talking about the huge meteorite.“Because of my love for rocks, when I saw it, I was ecstatic.” she said. “I got rock pimples. Instead of goose pimples, I got rock pimples. It was so exciting.”Batiste said she appreciates the meteorite for its scientific value. The rock has traveled a great distance and picked up information along the way that scientists will try to uncover.She does not know when the meteorite will be available to view at the Monnig Meteorite Gallery, but she did say it will be free for visitors.In the meantime, people can keep an eye on the ground for meteorites. Mayne said to pay attention to rocks that look out of place, have a magnetic pull and are unusually heavy for their size.If you think you’ve found a meteorite, you can contact gallery curators here.

Besides the detrimental health effects, smoking takes an $18.1 billion toll on California annually, according to a University of California, San Francisco study.“Smoking continues to be the leading preventable cause of the death in the United States” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “We have an opportunity to save lives and money with this bill.”Assembly Bill 2148 provides the National Resources Agency the ability to develop regulations regarding drone use on publically managed lands. Recent incidents have shown that drone use in close proximity to wildlife can have serious impacts. Assembly Bill 2148 strives to create a cohesive, statewide system of rules governing the use of unmanned drones on public lands. The regulations can include conditional use or outright prohibitions when necessary to protect the safety of wildlife, natural habitats or visitors.“There’s no denying the rapidly increasing number of drones in public spaces,” said Holden. “Now is the time to take preventative steps to protect California’s wildlife and natural habitats before it becomes a problem.”Assembly Bill 2364 would provide Californian’s undocumented high school students’ equal right to access higher education opportunities. Earlier this year, California’s legislature passed SB 75 that expanded Medi-Cal to all undocumented students under the age of 19 in California public schools. AB 2364 seeks to continue the legislature’s commitment to bring greater equity and fairness to all Californians.“Every child in California should have the opportunity to access our high quality education system,” said Holden. “This bill strengthens previous dual enrollment legislation by ensuring greater equity and access.”Assembly Concurrent Resolution 158 would help students transfer credits from one public California university to another. Streamlining the transfer process enables students to graduate faster and acquire less debt. Currently credits do not transfer from one CSU to another or one UC to another if a students has not completed 2 full years with 60 credits. 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Your email address will not be published.
