A separate study by accountancy firm Wilkins Kennedy found that at least one pub or bar went bust every day in 2010. The so-called “on trade” industry is suffering intense competition from supermarkets, which have boosted sales following the smoking ban.A spokesman for the British Beer & Pub Association said: “There’s no doubt pubs in particular are struggling. Around 1,300 shut in 2010 and the decision to raise Beer Tax by seven per cent in the Budget was a hammer blow for pub and pubgoers.”Wilkins Kennedy director Anthony Cork said: “These numbers show the extent to which the industry is struggling. Bars and restaurants are being squeezed from several directions and a growing number are being forced to close.“Bars, pubs and nightclubs are being undercut by supermarket alcohol deals which encourage people to drink at home rather than go out.” Pubs call last orders as supermarkets take trade Monday 28 March 2011 8:32 pm More From Our Partners I blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp
Caesars completes £2.9bn acquisition of William Hill M&A Completion of the acquisition comes after Caesars saw off a rival bid from Apollo Global, as well as a legal challenge from investment management fund HBK Investments, which had delayed the deal going from through on 1 April as initially planned. Existing William Hill shareholders will receive their share pay-outs no later than 6 May, while applications have been made to the Financial Conduct Authority and the London Stock Exchange to de-list William Hill shares. This is expected to take effect from 8am tomorrow. 22nd April 2021 | By Robert Fletcher Under the acquisition deal announced in September last year, Caesars agreed to pay £2.9bn (€3.35bn/$4.04bn) to take ownership of the business, purchasing William Hill’s 1.08bn shares for £2.72 apiece. At the time, Caesars stated that the target of the acquisition was William Hill’s US betting business and technology, with the remainder of the operator’s assets, including its UK arm, now set to be sold. HBK argued that shareholders were not correctly informed of the details of the deal, with particular concerns over William Hill’s 2019 joint venture agreement with Eldorado Resorts, which later acquired and rebranded as Caesars. “We are thrilled to complete the acquisition of William Hill, combining two of the premier operations in the sports betting and iGaming industries under one roof,” Caesars’ chief executive Tom Reeg said. In relation to the completed deal, William Hill directors Roger Devlin, Mark Brooker, Jane Hanson, Robin Terrell, Lynne Weedall and Gordon Wilson have tendered their resignations and stepped down from the William Hill Board. Caesars Entertainment has finalised its acquisition of British gambling operator William Hill. Tags: William Hill Caesars Entertainment Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter HBK stated Caesars’ ability to restrict counterbidders under the terms of this agreement was more limited than the scheme documents suggested. “We look forward to announcing future sports partnerships that will drive long-term growth.” The entire issued and to be issued share capital of William Hill, other than shares that were already owned by Caesars, are now owned by Caesars UK Bidco, the operating segment of Caesars that led the acquisition offer. The scheme court hearing to approve the deal was initially scheduled for 31 March, but HBK’s objection saw the deal delayed for three weeks. Topics: M&A After the High Court of Justice in England and Wales this week sanctioned the acquisition, Caesars and William Hill were able to proceed with the transaction and completed the deal today (22 April).

The stock market crash continues to disrupt financial markets around the world. With share prices low across the board, it can become hard to tell the stocks that are quality from those that are ticking time bombsWith shares down, then up and then down again, the stock market has become incredibly volatile. Guessing what tomorrow, next week, or even next month will bring is futile, you might as well toss a coin.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…But don’t lose heart, there are plenty of quality stocks in the FTSE 100 trading on cheap valuations at the moment. Hold them for the long term and you could expect healthy returns as markets recover. Here are two I particularly like the look of.BAE SystemsBAE Systems (LSE: BA) is a British multinational defence, security and aerospace company. It operates worldwide. Its businesses cover everything from electronic warfare systems to intelligence gathering to armoured vehicles.In recently released preliminary results, the company reported a good overall performance for 2019. Sales were up around 9%, with net debt reduced. This allowed BAE to lift its dividend by 4.5%, with the dividend per share increasing by 1p over last year.I see a positive outlook for the business. Last year, 43% of the company’s sales were to the US, which is a huge market when it comes to defence and security. What’s more, the company is in the process of carrying out two proposed acquisitions in the US.I’m particularly bullish when it comes to this stock and see it as well-placed for continued growth. In an ever-changing defence and security market that can be expected to experience increased demand over the coming years, BAE has a very strong position.The company mixes innovation with a business strategy that remains consistent and well-proven. Overall, it’s a quality stock that’s a strong buy for me, especially in light of a reduced price offered by the market crash.PrudentialInternational financial services company Prudential (LSE: PRU) offers a range of asset management services around the world. Such services and products include life insurance, pensions and annuities and investment schemes.In its recent full-year results report, the company highlighted its success in the Asian market, where it says it’s now the leading Asian mutual fund manager. It also said new business profit increased by 2% with adjusted operating profit up by 14%.A strong performance in volatile and uncertain times is a strong pull-factor for investors. I particularly like that the company has consistently implemented strong operational delivery, which has been a catalyst for growth so far.Ultimately, I think Prudential is a quality company that’s well-positioned to continue to deliver long-term profitable growth. In light of current market conditions and a price-to-earnings ratio of 7.3, I think there’s significant value to be had.What’s more, a resilient balance sheet and appropriate capital management mean that the market crash shouldn’t damage its finances too heavily. 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.

We look forward with anticipation to welcoming our UCLA Bruins home at a time when it is safe to do so.”On Tuesday, the Pac-12 CEO group voted unanimously to postpone fall sports and said they will look at options to return to competition next year, the conference announced. The vote ends any chance of UCLA football in the Rose Bowl this year.A Tournament of Roses official said the 2021 Rose Bowl Game is actually not a traditional game between the PAC-12 and BIG 10 and would be a College Football Playoff Semifinal game, so “we’re still waiting on direction from the CFP regarding the status of this year’s postseason.”Officials with the stadium were forced to cancel all events when the pandemic hit earlier this year and severely impacting the stadium’s finances.Rose Bowl officials were looking to college football to help with the recovery. UCLA was scheduled to play crosstown rival USC on Sept. 26.UCLA is one of the Rose Bowl’s primary tenants and has made millions of dollars for the stadium.The stadium will lose $5 million including concessions, souvenirs and parking, according to Councilman and Mayoral Candidate Victor Gordo“This is a very disappointing development but certainly not unanticipated,” Gordo said. The Rose Bowl Operating Company Board of Directors and staff have been working very hard to come up with alternatives that will generate revenue. While the Rose Bowl is limited to the type and size of events they can hold during the pandemic. There are opportunities to be creative and make revenue.”Gordo led the RBOC for more than 10 years dating back to 2009 decade and helped bring the stadium into the black. He stepped down in 2019, but remains on the RBOC.According to a staff report in a Finance Committee agenda report released two weeks ago, the Rose Bowl Operating Committee was expecting a 25 percent reduction in fans due to social distancing guidelines, if fans are allowed inside the stadium at all.The Rose Parade was canceled late last month.“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott in a statement. “Our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.”Student athletes will continue to have their scholarships guaranteed. The conference is also encouraging the NCAA to grant students who opt out of playing this academic year an additional year of eligibility.Presidents from the ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC athletic conferences — also known as the Power 5 — held an emergency meeting Sunday amid growing concerns that fall.“We’re all holding out hope for spring athletics,” Gordo said.

The order has been passed by Justice N. Anand Venkatesh on noting the “astounding number” of pending motor accidents claims/ appeals. The bench was hearing a batch of petitions whereby an insurer had sought transfer of 16 different Motor Accident Claim petitions pending before various tribunals in the State of Tamil Nadu to the High Court under Section 24 of CPC in order to facilitate a compromise arrived at in consultation with accident victims/families. While the court allowed the petition in terms of a recent ruling whereby transfer of 23 claims pending against private insurer Cholamandalam MS General Insurance was allowed, it proceeded to record its “loud thinking” during the COVID crisis. Justice Venkatesh noted that an “astounding” number of motor accident appeals were pending in various High Courts. For the period 2018-19 about 9,42,805 claims were pending in respect of the motor insurance companies at various levels, the High Court noted, and as for 2019-20, around 7,81,563 are pending. In this backdrop Justice Venkatesh has “requested” the Central Government/Union Finance Ministry/IRDA/GIC/4 PSUs and nearly 21 private motor insurance companies and State Transport Corporations to consider the possibility of withdrawing Appeals against awards where the amounts in dispute is less than Rs.7.50,000/-, as a one off gesture in these Pandemic times. “This court is only inspired to request the entities to consider its suggestion, in the wake of what this Court has been exposed to, in coming to the rescue of about hundred victims and enabling them to have the benefit of Rs. 4,19,57,324/- and closure of their claims too, before the Claims Tribunals and even this court .That experience has led this court to have a heart, and think of the victims and for them. Accordingly, this court with utmost regard and respect to the limits of its remit, is inclined to direct the Registrar-General of this Court to send a copy of this order, constituting a request being made to the Central Government and others on the suggestion made in this order, with regard to possible withdrawal of appeals before various High Courts in respect of those, where the amounts in dispute were less than, say, Rs.7,50,000/- all told, or such other amount as the entities consider feasible or possible in this regard,” the order states. The request is in an attempt to “strike a balance” between the motor accident victims and the insurers/STCs. The court emphasized that compensation granted under the welfare legislation that the Motor Vehicle Act is, is essential for the victims to get their “lives back on track” after the traumatic accidents. “…Lot of victims need a desperate rescue and recovery package. Such a measure may unclog the pending appeals and release a significant sum of money, into the hands of the victims, to tap into, in their financially stringent position,” the court said. The court has however clarified that the same is not a compulsion or direction. “This court cannot be seen to be directing any of the entities to agree for this loudly thought suggestion. It is up to them to take a call as they deem fit. But, the fact that this court is perched in a constitutional position, suggests that its words may carry a value, for serious consideration. This Court would like to make use of it for the larger public interest. This court is not issuing any direction. Not even a direction to consider this suggestion,” the court clarified while “fervently hoping” that the said entities will give due consideration to the suggestion made by it and will respond positively. As regards the disputed amount so suggested by the court, it clarified that no statistical or numerical algorithms were contemplated before making the suggestion. “This court is not suggesting this ball park figure upon any statistical or numerical algorithms. It is a mere speculative number. The concerned entities may hit upon any other number of their choice, if they agreed to this solution.” Case Details: Case Title: M/s. Cholamandalam MS Genl Ins Co.

We studied the distribution and abundance of marine birds in Bransfield Strait and southern Drake Passage during January and February 1985. We identified clusters of bird species, “communities” with similar distributions, and examined the extent to which the distributions of these seabird communities reflected the underlying physical oceanography of the region. Based on temperature, salinity and silicon data, we identified 11 water masses which resulted from varying degrees of mixing of water from the Pacific Basin, the Bellingshausen Sea, the Weddell Sea and terrestrial runoff. Seabird species assemblages were associated with contiguous clusters of water masses, suggesting a response by the birds to apparently subtle differences in their marine habitat.
Boreholes in the large, extinct Antarctic Neogene pectinid Zygochlamys anderssoni suggest that this scallop was preyed upon by a large predatory muricid gastropod impossibly a Trophon species). The holes occur in mature individuals, which contrasts with the situation in modern Zygochlamys delicatula from New Zealand, where gastropod predation is apparently restricted to juveniles only. This difference is ascribed to dissimilarities in the lifestyles of these scallops; whereas the former was probably byssally attached throughout ontogeny, adults of the latter become tree living after an initial period of byssal attachment. During the late Pliocene, a change towards higher motility in Chlamys‐like pectinids of the Southern Ocean may have caused the loss of an important food source for the larger muricids.
