first_img Show Comments ▼ whatsapp FINANCIAL TIMESBANKS WATCH BARCLAYS’ COCO PLANSBig banks on both sides of the Atlantic are weighing whether to follow Barclays as it pushes ahead with a plan to pay bonuses with innovative bonds, dubbed cocos. According to several banks present at last week’s World Economic Forum in Davos, the idea of using contingent convertible notes as a remuneration tool is gaining ground. Pending regulatory approval, Barclays aims to unveil the coco bonus plan next month. TREASURY SEES RED OVER GREEN BANKChris Huhne is at loggerheads with the Treasury over the size and scope of the green investment bank, as officials seek to thwart his attempts to ensure it operates as a fully fledged bank. The Treasury has already earmarked £1bn for the bank, to be spent on green infrastructure projects such as renewable energy.SIMPLIFY VISAS FOR CHINESELuxury retailers are pressing the government to tackle visa bottlenecks for Chinese tourists, claiming bureaucracy is causing shoppers to shun London stores in favour of centres such as Paris and Milan. Retail spending in the UK from Chinese visitors topped £350m last year, according to Global Blue, a financial services company, but retailers including Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason argue this could be far higher if the UK visa process was simplified. MERCK UNVEILS SHAKE-UPMerck, the German pharmaceuticals company, is considering the sale of its consumer health business and has started overhauling its approach to clinical drug development as part of a shake-up designed to boost its flagging share price. Karl-Ludwig Kley, chairman of the executive board, signalled the changes as his reshuffled executive team begins work on a “road map” to improve performance.THE TIMESDESMOND REVIVES ENDEMOL DEALBig Brother is expected to return to British TV screens this summer after Endemol, the reality show’s owner, restarted talks with Channel 5 owner Richard Desmond over a new broadcasting deal. Endemol is keen to strike a deal because its investors, led by Goldman Sachs, face a battle to retain control of the company. A group of American hedge funds, including Apollo Management and Avenue Capital, have secretly bought up close to 40 per cent of its debts.BEER CHIEFS TO SHARE OUT £730MExecutives at Inbev, the beer giant behind Budweiser, are set to share an extraordinary €850m (£730m) payday. The potential windfall comes from an incentive scheme that the board introduced when Inbev, the brewer behind Stella Artois, bought Anheuser Busch in 2008.The Daily TelegraphCIRQUE MAY LEAP FOR NEW PARTNERCirque du Soleil, the modern circus troupe which has transformed the way the once old-fashioned theatrical event is viewed, would be willing to sell a further 10 per cent equity stake to a strategic partner, founder Guy Laliberté has admitted. In 2008, Dubai-based private equity investor Istithmar World Capital and real estate developer Nakheel bought a 20 per cent stake in Cirque from Laliberté for an estimated $500m (£315m).SFO HAS £2M TO ENFORCE BRIBERY ACTThe Serious Fraud Office’s (SFO) ability to enforce the new Bribery Act has been questioned after it emerged that the agency will have just £2m a year to enforce the pending legislation. The amount of funding will raise questions about how effective the legislation will be in catching and deterring corruption.THE WALL STREET JOURNALEUROPEBORDERS DELAYS JAN PAYMENTSCash-strapped Borders Group said that it will delay January payments to vendors, landlords and others, as indications grow that the bookseller could be headed for bankruptcy court. The number two US bookstore chain said the move was intended to preserve liquidity as it works to restructure its finances. The company said it “understands the impact of its decision on the affected parties,” but wants to work with creditors and others to bolster its prospects.GENERICS EYE BIOLOGICSGeneric drug makers are expecting copies of biological drugs to become a multibillion dollar market in the near future.

Analyst Francois Meunier said: “We are positively surprised that software development is already well advanced. Bears on ARM argue that Windows on ARM could be late and/or unstable, which appears not to be the case. ARM continues to make faster inroads in the PC market than Intel in tablets and smartphones.”ARM’s shares closed 6.8 per cent up at 598p, recouping losses suffered after Intel said it will introduce a rival processor for tablet computers. last_img read more

Kindred to boost marketing headcount amid redundancy concerns

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Kindred to boost marketing headcount amid redundancy concerns Topics: People Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Kindred Group has moved to allay concerns that up to 26 marketing roles are at risk of redundancy by setting out plans to add more than 100 new positions as part of its future growth strategy.center_img People 26th June 2019 | By contenteditor Kindred Group has moved to allay concerns that up to 26 marketing roles are at risk of redundancy by setting out plans to add more than 100 new positions as part of its future growth strategy.Reports have emerged this week that some employees could lose their jobs as the operator restructures its Global Marketing Service (GMS) department, in line with its reorganisation program that has been ongoing throughout 2018 and 2019.However, when contacted by iGamingBusiness.com about the redundancies, Alexander Westrell, group head of communications at Kindred, said that while some positions are “at risk”, the operator is aiming to create more marketing roles to support its growth aims.“26 roles are put ‘at risk’ of redundancy, but at the same time we are aiming to add over 100 new marketing roles to facilitate our future growth,” Westrell told iGamingBusiness.com.“The restructure in GMS is partly done to further increase our proactive stance towards sustainability and compliance across the business. So the 26 roles that are at risk have been urged to apply for the over 100 new roles that have been created.”The statement comes after Kindred in April reported a year-on-year decline in earnings in the first quarter, despite a rise in revenue.Revenue for the three months through to March 31, 2019 amounted to £224.4m (€250.3m/$284.4m), up 8.0% on the previous year, but earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation fell 35.3% to £30.6m, with Kindred noting it had taken an £18.9m hit from its Swedish launch.At the time, Kindred also reported a 29.2% rise in marketing costs to £53.6m, due in part to higher expenditure on bonuses, and strong uptake in Sweden in January and February. However, bonus spend stabilised later in the quarter, and was lower than 2018 by March.Image: Max Pixel Tags: Online Gamblinglast_img read more

EU Parliament supports Snowden

first_imgGood news is hard to find, especially since the U.S. capitalist media try to bury a lot of it. Here’s a recent example:The European Parliament, a body that is directly elected by the people of all 28 European Union member states and is more reflective of their opinions than many governments, voted on Oct. 29 that each EU country should “drop any criminal charges against Edward Snowden, grant him protection and consequently prevent extradition or rendition by third parties, in recognition of his status as whistleblower and international human rights defender.” (theguardian.com, Oct. 29)While not directly enforceable, the resolution expresses the anger of many in Europe against the worldwide electronic “surveillance” campaign conducted by the National Security Agency, a massive U.S. spying organization. And it expresses the strong popular support for heroic whistleblowers like Snowden and Chelsea Manning, who have faced exile or imprisonment for exposing U.S. crimes, both here and abroad.This vote reveals how unpopular U.S. imperialism and its political leaders have become, even in so-called allied countries.The response by the U.S. government was not surprising. “Our position has not changed,” Ned Price, spokesperson for the National Security Council, said in a statement emailed to the Guardian. “Mr. Snowden is accused of leaking classified information and faces felony charges here in the United States. As such, he should be returned to the U.S. as soon as possible, where he will be accorded full due process.”The “due process” that Price is talking about is prosecution under the draconian Espionage Act of 1917, which would even forbid Snowden from arguing in his defense that his disclosures benefited the public.That same law was used to jail courageous unionist and socialist Eugene Debs for years because he spoke out against U.S. entry into World War I. Later, it was used to execute both Julius and Ethel Rosenberg on falsified Cold War espionage charges. It was used to sentence Chelsea Manning to prison for decades for exposing U.S. war crimes in Iraq.This law is not justice. It is simply a grotesque blueprint for retribution against those with the courage to expose the atrocities of imperialism. Stop the persecution of Edward Snowden! Free Chelsea Manning!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Internet increasingly resembles an Intranet as foreign services blocked

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders said the Burmese Internet increasingly resembles an Intranet as more and more foreign electronic services have been cut.Email providers Gmail, as well as Internet telephone services Gtalk and Skype, have been blocked in Burma since the end of June. It appears however that the blocking of this Internet services is not absolutely constant and that Internet-users can occasionally access them.”The decision to ban Gtalk and Skype were taken partly for financial reasons. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services were breaking into the profitable long-distance telephone call market, in which the state has a monopoly,” said the press freedom organisation.”But it is also since, like webmails, this type of communication is very difficult to monitor. The Burmese Internet is more controlled than the Net in China,” it added.The authorities, who already block access to Yahoo! and Microsoft (Hotmail) email services, want to force Burmese Internet-users to use Mail4U from Myanmar Teleport (formerly Bagan Cybertech), a state enterprise which filters and controls email content. July 4, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Internet increasingly resembles an Intranet as foreign services blocked Reporters Without Borders said the Burmese Internet increasingly resembles an Intranet as more and more foreign electronic services have been cut. Email providers Gmail, as well as Internet telephone services Gtalk and Skype, have been blocked in Burma since the end of June. At the end of May, as Aung San Suu Kyi’s house arrest was being extended, the Internet was completely cut off in Burma. All that was accessible was local sites of Myanmar Wide Web, a national Intranet made up of websites approved by the regime. The Myanmar Posts and Telecom (MPT), one of the departments of the Ministry of Communications, Post and Telegraphs, said the cut was due to technical problems linked to optical cables under the seabed off the coast of Singapore. But, according to a journalist on the Democratic Voice of Burma, the cut was in reality “a ruse” allowing the authorities to upgrade their Internet-filtering programmes.Officially, Burma says it wants to modernise and prioritise new technology but in fact the military junta does its utmost to control information circulating on the Net.Every computer in the country has to be registered with the MPT, with those failing to do so liable to a sentence of up to 15 years in prison. It is the state which licences Internet cafés. They are forced to ask clients to produce proof of identity and to install software which takes screen captures every five minutes. All the data has to be kept on CDs and regularly sent to the authorities.The Burmese authorities have ordered filtering of independent online newspapers, websites defending human rights or promoting democracy and publications supporting the claims of the Karen people (an anti-government ethnic group in the east of the country). Internet users can access these sites and webmail by using proxy servers or tunnelling techniques (See Reporters Without Borders’ Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-dissidents). The OpenNet Initiative has shown that the junta has, since May 2004, been using Internet filtering software sold by the US firm Fortinet.Finally, the creation of a website has to be approved by the authorities, and under a 2000 law, anyone discussing political issues online or posting articles “likely to damage the interests of the Myanmar Union” or “directly or indirectly harmful to state security policy” is liable to a six-month prison sentence.Reporters Without Borders considers Burma to be one of the 15 “black holes in the Internet”.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Organisation News News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Myanmar RSF_en center_img May 26, 2021 Find out more to go further May 12, 2021 Find out more MyanmarAsia – Pacific News US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture News Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific May 31, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Ice nucleating activity of homogenized faeces from larvae and adults of both species and excised guts were compared with three potential food plants using an ice nucleation spectrometer. Mean supercooling points of the insect materials at four concentrations in distilled water (range from 0.01 to 10 g 1−1) were significantly different (P<0.01) within species, and within life stages between species. Differences in the supercooling points of suspensions of Polytrichum alpinum (moss) and Usnea fasciata (lichen) were not significant. In general, differences between supercooling points were greater at the higher concentrations. Histograms of the supercooling points showed unimodal distributions particularly at high concentrations and greater dispersion with increased dilution. Spectra showing the concentration of active ice nucleators over the temperature range 0 to -20°C were developed. These showed that nucleation occurred as high as -2°C in faecal material and all insect samples nucleated above -3°C, whereas the plant materials nucleated between -4 and -5°C. The calculated number of ice nucleators for each material in suspension revealed low values (5.3 to 5.8 × 103) for the plants, but a greater abundance (1.3 × 105 to 1.3 × 106) in the insect samples. It is concluded that c.1000 active nucleators g−1 are required for ice nucleation to occur in these suspensions. Ice nucleator activity of a suspension of Hydromedion faeces was much reduced by heating to 75°C, suggesting a proteinaceous structure. These results are discussed in relation to ice nucleation in other insects, and it is concluded that bacteria may be responsible for the high nucleation temperatures, and hence poor supercooling, in these South Georgia insects. An empirical model is developed for ice nucleation spectra based on these data.last_img read more
