Virgin plans to withhold bills for landing and parking planes until it sees the results of an internal BAA inquiry into the disruption, due to be published in March.“We’re exploring our legal options but will continue talking to BAA and want the inquiry into what happened last month to be both independent and robust,” Virgin Atlantic spokesman Greg Dawson said yesterday.Heavy snowfall paralysed BAA’s Heathrow airport the week before Christmas, leading to a spate of flight cancellations after the second runway was closed.“We have written to BAA this weekend to advise them that we are withholding our fees from the airport operator until its inquiry into the snow enforced runway closures in December is completed,” Virgin Atlantic said in a statement.Payments withheld by Virgin are thought to be worth less than £10m. BAA’s parent company Ferrovial is legally entitled to seize Virgin’s aircraft for not paying bills, but the firm did not mention this option yesterday. BMI, which complained about BAA’s fees penalising domestic flights last year, also said it was seeking compensation from BAA. BAA said in a statement: “Heathrow’s conditions of use do not provide any basis for Virgin Atlantic or any other airline to withhold airport charges.” It added that it is working with airlines while its enquiry progressed.

Casino & games Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Poker Email Address Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has cancelled RMI Limited’s B2C gaming service licence in the country after ruling that the operator breached rules regarding regulatory payments and data provisions.RMI Limited, which had been operating online poker site PokerGrant under its Malta licence, was found to be in breach of paragraph E and H of the Third Schedule to the Gaming Act.In relation to paragraph E, the MGA said RMI Limited failed to pay in a timely manner amounts due to the regulator, including all compliance contribution fees, its licence fee for 2018 and additional sums owed.The MGA also said RMI Limited failed to submit its January 2019 Player Funds Report and the relevant applications for the appointment of key functions. This amounted to a breach of paragraph H, which requires licensees to make key data available to the regulator. As a result, RMI Limited is no longer authorised to carry out any gaming operations, register new players or accept new customer deposits.However, the operator is required to retain and provide access to all registered customers to their player accounts, as well as refund player balances.The MGA noted that RMI has the option to appeal its decision.The ruling comes at the end of a week in which the MGA has established a new Sports Integrity Unit to help increase focus and resources dedicated to preventing the manipulation of sporting events and competitions.The regulator also released new guidelines governing licensees’ advertising and established a new committee to ensure compliance with the new rules this week.

Galaxy revenue plummets in H1 amid Macau travel restrictions

first_imgCasino & games Asian casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) saw revenue for the six months to 30 June drop 76.3% with the operator expecting further headwinds from the ongoing impact of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) on its Macau venues.The group’s gross gaming revenue came to $6.01bn (£591.7m/€654.5m/$774.9m), down 80.4%. After deducting commission payments and bonuses, net gaming revenue came to €4.32bn, down 80.6%.The business made an additional $679m from its non-gaming division, down 74.4%, and a further $1.22bn from its construction materials division, which represented a drop of 8.3%. This resulted in total group revenue of €6.22bn, down 76.3%.Of this $6.01bn in GGR, $2.95bn came from regular table game customers, down 79.8%, with players wagering $11.97bn, while $2.79bn of GGR, an 81.1% decline, came from VIPs, who staked $74.87bn. A further $261m was made through electronic gaming, down 78.3%, on stakes of $8.48bn.GEG’s revenue from its Galaxy Macau property came to €3.84bn, down 79.6%.Galaxy Macau made HKD$3.26bn in net gaming revenue for the half-year, down 80.3%, from gross gaming revenue of $4.37bn, down 80.0%. The business earned an additional $373m through hotel, food and beverage revenue (down 77.6%) and €202m from malls (down 66.0%).Galaxy earned $1.08bn, down 81.1%, more in revenue from StarWorld Macau. Of this total, $1.02bn came from net gaming revenue, an 81.4% decline, while hotel and food revenue fell 75.9% to $54m and mall revenue fell 70.3% to $8m. Gross gaming revenue came to $1.30bn, down 82.7%.Broadway Macau, meanwhile, saw revenue fall 84.9% to $23m in gaming as its lack of a VIP component led to a particularly heavy decline, of 74.0% to $32m in hotels and 56.6% to $10m in malls.The operator did not break down expenses, but said its loss before tax, interest, depreciation and amortisation was $1.09bn, after the business posted an $8.38bn profit in this area a year prior. Galaxy Macau made an EBITDA loss of $848m, StarWorld $202m and Broadway $97m.Dr. Lui Che Woo, chairman of the Galaxy Entertainment Group, said cutting costs has been a priority because the the Covid-19 crisis, though the business was keen to avoid cutting too deep.“During this period of very low revenue our focus has shifted from revenue generation to effective cost control,” Lui said. However, it is important to not cut costs excessively and therefore adversely impact our ability to deliver upon customer service standards when business returns.”Looking only at the second quarter of 2020, Galaxy made revenue of HKD $1.15bn, down 91.2% as strict restrictions caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis had a drastic impact on its business.Net gaming revenue was down 97.5% to just $276m, as construction materials, which saw revenue grow 57.3% to $747m, became Galaxy’s largest division. Non-gaming revenue fell 76.3% to $130m.Galaxy’s net gaming revenue of $276m came on gross gaming revenue of $485m, down 96.8%. VIPs made up the majority of gross gaming revenue at $315m, down 95.7%, while other table game revenue fell 98.1% to $138m. Electronic gaming revenue was down 94.7% to $32m.Galaxy Macau brought in revenue of $311m for the quarter, down 96.7%, including net gaming revenue of $200m – a 97.7% decline – as gross gaming revenue fell 97.1% to $329m. StarWorld Macau’s revenue plummeted 97.1% to $81m, while Broadway Macau’s contribution was down 91.2% at $12m.The group’s EBITDA loss totalled $1.37bn for the quarter, compared to a $4.32bn profit in 2019.Galaxy Macau’s EBITDA loss came to $1.78bn, while StarWorld made a loss of $306m, and BroadWay Macau $52m.Across all operators, casino revenue in Macau for the first half of 2020 totalled MOP33.72bn (£72.2m/€79.8m/$89.7m), down 77.4% year-on-year. Almost two thirds (MOP22.13bn) of this revenue was earned in January alone.This low revenue across the island has been mostly caused by tight travel restrictions to and from Macau because of Covid-19. Last month, the Chinese province of Guangdong started the easing of these restrictions, lifting the mandatory 14-day quarantine for all people entering from Macau.“First and foremost, the Macau government continues to perform admirably throughout the pandemic with proactive and decisive leadership and generating community support,” Lui said. “They are clearly focused on public health and safety as well as economic and social stability.”Lui said he could not be sure how the market would recover, however.“It is premature to comment on how quickly the market may recover,” Lui said. “Going forward we expect to experience further headwinds from the pandemic, which will have an adverse impact on our financial performance. However in the medium to longer term, we continue to remain optimistic in the outlook for Macau in general and GEG specifically.”Image: kennyieong 13th August 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Slot Machines Galaxy revenue plummets in H1 amid Macau travel restrictions Regions: China Macau Asian casino operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) saw revenue for the six months to 30 June drop 76.3% with the operator expecting further headwinds from the ongoing impact of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) on its Macau venues.

The storming recovery seen in global stock markets since March has been accompanied by a surge in new account openings from those who previously had no interest in investing. Since studies consistently show that owning equities is generally the best way of increasing your wealth, I think this is (potentially) great news. That said, I do think there are a few key things new investors must learn early on. Stock market goalsForget the quick wins — good investing rests on solid foundations and knowing what you want to achieve before throwing every penny you have at stocks. Simply ‘wanting to be rich’ isn’t enough because it won’t help you refine your strategy (there are many ways of making money in the markets).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…So, what are your financial goals? Is it saving for retirement in the future or generating income now? Are you saving for your child’s university tuition fees or a deposit on a house?Just as important is knowing how much energy you’re willing to commit to investing. There’s little point buying single company stocks if you’re not prepared to follow their progress (or lack of). You’ll probably be better off buying funds managed by professionals or, alternatively, low-cost index trackers and doing something else with your time. Speaking of which…Take advantage of timeOne powerful advantage retail investors have over the professionals is that the latter’s scorecards are continually scrutinised. If they don’t perform, their careers are cut short. This is unfortunate since investing success can/should only really be judged over years and ideally decades. The short-term moves of stock markets tend to be pretty meaningless.As retail investors, we don’t have this problem. They’ll be no one to hand us a P45 if we underperform for a while.More importantly, we can use this to our advantage through buying shares in undervalued companies experiencing temporary problems. Assuming all goes well, we’ll reap the rewards later down the line.Diversify (but not too much)Throwing all your cash at only a few stocks is a recipe for ruin, particularly if they’re in volatile sectors such as oil and gas or biotech. Having said this, being overly diversified can hold you back too. The more shares you own, the less you deviate from the market as a whole.To beat the stock market, you need to do something different to the market. It’s no surprise, therefore, that some of the UK’s most successful money managers are those who only invest in their best ideas. Think 20-30 stocks…think Terry Smith or Nick Train. There’s no magic bullet when it comes to defining how many shares to hold but here’s a simple acid test: if you’re losing sleep over your portfolio, you’re likely taking on too much risk.Stick to your scriptIt can be easy to deviate from your own script in pursuit of riches, especially when others appear to be doubling their wealth overnight. How many usually-calm private investors were rushing to invest in Synairgen last week? Quite a few, I imagine.Even the professionals sometimes struggle to do it and they’re managing other peoples’ money (see Neil Woodford’s fall from grace last year).Don’t follow the herd. Avoid unnecessary commission costs that erode returns. Learn to sit on your hands. Learn to buy and hold.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Portland caravan supports essential workers

first_imgLarge placards covered supporters’ cars during the Portland, Ore., caravan for essential workers held May 21. It started at the East Portland Post Office, circled two Fred Meyer grocery stores and ended at Legacy Emmanuel Hospital. The event was hosted by Communities and Postal Workers United and attended by a number of local groups and organizations.Nurses, who left work to cheer on the caravan, holding signs demanding safe staffing, hazard pay and no reduction in work hours. WW Photo: Lyn Neeley“U.S. Mail Not for Sale” signs protested President Trump’s aggressive plan to privatize the people’s post office. Trump is blocking a $25 billion coronavirus aid package for the U.S. Postal Service, which has been hit hard by the pandemic. As a condition for receiving aid, he has demanded the USPS quadruple package rates, which would kill affordable, universal delivery to every address in the country. Trump appointed the new Postmaster General, Louis DeJoy, who has contributed $2 million to the Trump campaign and Republican causes since 2016 and has a record of killing jobs and opposing unions when he was the owner of New Breed Logistics.The Fred Meyer grocery chain has terminated the $2-an-hour “Hero Bonus” pay for essential workers. “Essential employees are literally putting their lives on the line for their employer and communities,” said Dan Clay, president of the Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 555. The union has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases among union members. Clay said there is a great risk in letting up on safety measures, like testing and contact tracing for all essential workers and their families.

Assemblymember Chris Holden “Most Disappointed” As Governor Brown Cuts Promised Funding to the Pasadena Playhouse

first_img Community News Top of the News Government Assemblymember Chris Holden “Most Disappointed” As Governor Brown Cuts Promised Funding to the Pasadena Playhouse Published on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 | 6:04 pm Today, Governor Jerry Brown presented his proposed Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget. For the first time in four years Brown projects a state deficit – $1.6 billion from declining revenue – that he proposes to offset with $3.2 billion in budget solutions.Assemblymember Chris Holden released the following statement:I’m most disappointed in the one million dollar one-time cut in funding for the renovation of the Pasadena Playhouse that already passed in Fiscal Year 2016-2017 Budget. This cut is especially deep as the Playhouse, the official State Theater of California, celebrates its 100th Anniversary.The Playhouse has already committed funds they were promised to the renovation project and it is disingenuous of Governor Brown to take it away six months later.This action sets bad precedent for future budget negotiations and breeds public distrust among tax payers.” More Cool Stuff Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Successful launch held by Limerick Together for Yes

The format of the Limerick launch was a facilitated discussion looking at the process by which Government arrived at the decision to have a referendum on the Eighth Amendment.The panel included former Citizens Assembly member, Beckha Doyle, Eighth Committee members, Deputy Jan O’Sullivan and Senator Paul Gavan, Deputy Chairperson of Limerick Together for Yes, Jennifer Schweppe and arguably the highlight of the event, Co-Director of the national Together for Yes campaign, Ailbhe Smyth. The event MC was Thomas Bibby from the Green Party.During the event when addressing the crowd Ms Smyth commented, “It’s wonderful to see this huge gathering in Limerick, it is incredible, not enough seats in the room”. She continued, “Our message is clear, we want compassionate care for all people in this country. We want this country to be fairer and gentler, and a country that values women.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Labour TD, Jan O’Sullivan said, “It was a privilege to be part of the panel of speakers at the launch of Limerick Together for Yes campaign with a packed room of people from right across Limerick life and political parties, all determined to win this referendum and to take the complex and personal issue of abortion out of the Constitution.  The overwhelming message is that we need to care for women in their own country, in their own health service.  We will work together in a unified campaign and I would urge others to join us to finally, after 35 years, persuade people that we need to repeal the Eighth Amendment.”Beckha Doyle (former member of Citizens Assembly), Senator Paul Gavan (Sinn Féin), Jan O Sullivan TD (Labour), MC Thomas Bibby (Green Party), Jennifer Schweppe (Limerick Together for Yes) & Ailbhe Smyth (Together for Yes).Sinn Féin Senator, Paul Gavan, followed, “Tonight we had a room full of people from all parties and none, uniting for one key purpose; to remove the Eighth Amendment from our Constitution and place care, compassion and respect for women at the heart of our society and our public healthcare system.”Event MC Thomas Bibby from the Green Party, concluded, “It was a privilege to hear about the evidence presented to the Citizens Assembly and Joint Oireachtas Committee tonight. We are delighted to support Limerick Together for Yes in campaigning for a more compassionate Ireland that allows abortion care for women who need it. Our members are reporting positive reactions on the doors on the Limerick Together for Yes canvasses but there is no room for complacency in this campaign.”More about society here.
