first_img KCS-content BEST OF THE BROKERS TRAVIS PERKINSRBS rates the building materials firm “buy” with a raised target price of £12.95. The broker sees the firm’s purchase of BSS Group last month as an attractive earnings driver over the next two years until the underlying market recovery takes over in 2013. It adds that the acquisition gives the company significant buying power.NEXTSeymour Pierce rates the retailer “buy” with a target price of £25. The broker believes Next had a passable Christmas, demonstrating the strength of its multi-channel sales model. Expectations were low, according to the broker, and the firm would have performed at the top end of its guidance if it had not snowed.TESCOJP Morgan Cazenove has chosen Tesco as its food retail top pick for 2011, with an “overweight” rating and a target price of 577p. The broker sees a sharply improving returns profile as the firm diversifies. It also notes that debt is falling. It expects like-for-like sales excluding fuel to be up 2.5 per cent when it reports on 13 January.

UK horseracing Levy set to plummet £17m

first_img Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter UK horseracing Levy set to plummet £17m The Horseracing Betting Levy Board (HBLB) has warned that the Levy for the UK industry in 2018-19 is set to fall short of expectations by some distance, with forecasts placing the sum paid to the industry down by £17m (€9.4m/$21.7m) from the previous year.The Levy for the 12 months to March 31, 2019 has been estimated by the HBLB at £78m, down from £98m in 2017-18 – the first year of the Levy – and lower than the £89m forecast by the HBLB after the third quarter.According to the HBLB, end-of-year submissions from bookmakers showed both February and March of 2019 were “substantially less profitable than in 2018”, and the organisation has had to shift its expectations as a result.Should the Levy eventually total £78m, the HBLB would have incurred a budget deficit on expenditure of some £5m in 2018-19. The HBLB’s reserves would also be lower than expected – down from £50m to around £40m.As a result, the HBLB would be required to adjust its budget for 2019. This currently stands at £99m, but plans would have to be formulated to reduce this by £5m.“Bookmaker profits in the fourth quarter, particularly in February and March, were reported to be very substantially down on estimates,” HBLB chair, Paul Lee, said. “This has led to a material undershooting of Levy income against forecast, even taking into account that yield was not expected to reach the £95m of 2017-18.“This is only the second year of the extended Levy and the inherent uncertainty was recognised by the Board in 2017, which led to its policy of increasing reserves significantly over the past two years. The purpose of having these reserves is to be able to shield Racing against substantial fluctuation.”Lee noted that the variation in yield in the first two years of the extended Levy makes forecasting 2019-20 income more difficult, while the HBLB will also face challenges when setting its budget for the 2020 calendar year.“The Board will look to put in place additional reporting arrangements with major bookmakers, who are already helpfully providing significant data to the Board on a voluntary basis,” he said.The UK horseracing industry has moved quickly to address the news, with the Racecourse Association, The Horsemen’s Group and the British Horseracing Authority meeting earlier this week to discuss their plans.At the meeting, it was agreed that the three organisations will support the HBLB proposal to cut expenditure in 2019. As most of the HBLB’s spending is on prize money, it is likely that this area will be hit most by the move, and talks are now underway as to how to best implement the changes.A spokesman for racing’s tripartite leadership said: “We were shocked to see the big drop in Levy yield for 2018/19, which was significantly below the previous forecast at the end of March. We share the disappointment that our sport will feel having produced some highly competitive and compelling racing over the past year.“The bulk of the Levy income is distributed as prize money. At a time when there is already significant debate in the industry around levels of prize money, we appreciate that any potential reduction will cause further concern.“The recent positive reporting from the betting sector on the growing attraction of betting on our sport makes clear that the issue isn’t the popularity of racing as a betting product, but rather its potential profitability. As the Levy is based on those betting profits, that is clearly concerning for all in racing.”Image: Paul AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 17th May 2019 | By contenteditor Finance Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy Horse racing Regions: UK & Ireland The Horseracing Betting Levy Board (HBLB) has warned that the Levy for the UK industry in 2018-19 is set to fall short of expectations by some distance, with forecasts placing the sum paid to the industry down by £17m (€9.4m/$21.7m) from the previous year.

For the Northern Hemisphere, it’s been a tournament of what-ifs

first_imgEngland’s untimely early exit, and last weekend the trio of Celts departing has left Northern Hemisphere fans glumly pondering what might have been… Missed opportunity: England players reflect on a nightmare tournament TAGS: Highlight Fan-tastic: The support from around the world has been mindblowingBut really, they are completely mistaken. It’s away from the grounds we need to look to see the impact of England’s – and now the other home nations’ – premature departures. The reduction of column inches in the mainstream media is clear, with football creeping back to pre-eminence. Sunday’s semi-final has been relegated from BBC Radio Five Live to Five Live Extra. Okay, not biggies, but noteworthy.This was rugby union’s great opportunity in England. In so many ways, there’s been so much to cherish; the improved excellence of the smaller nations, the grounds, the pool stage atmospheres and the brilliance of the four Rugby Championship sides. This tournament, though, was the chance to convert rugby’s many non-believers, to get people punch-drunk on the game and to use those empty words administrators (and Stuart Lancaster) so love to waffle on about: “legacy” and “inspiring a generation”.Latin passion: The Pumas have been an example to allWhichever way you square it, for this to happen, a strong showing was required from the hosts and the home nations. Partisan support is crucial if new fans are to get truly wrapped up in an event. This weekend, new fans on this side of the world may watch the games, but they will not be truly absorbed if they truly don’t care who wins. These games probably will not force them to pursue the sport further. That’s the brutal truth of it: this World Cup was supposed to go further and it has not.In the UK, what we’re going to end up with is perhaps a few new fans alongside those who were already here. What remains at this stage of the tournament is what we started with. Part-time rugby fans and normal people (not many of whom can afford tickets, lest we forget) have got on with their lives again. That their last point of real, partisan interest in the tournament is likely to be Scotland going out as a result of a law they can’t have fathomed certainly won’t have helped. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Will MacphersonBear with me here: I have never seen my Facebook newsfeed look quite like it.First, the evening of Saturday October 3: England go out of the World Cup. Spleens are vented as to where Stuart Lancaster went wrong, why he’s not fit to coach England and how and why those keyboard experts could have run the national team better. Remember this game had kicked off at 8pm, so by the time the internet’s post mortem began, such analyses were taking place, no doubt, with the assistance of several yards of ale.The following couple of days centred around informing your friends and followers that you “can’t believe England are out of the World Cup [insert sad emoji]”, while perhaps offering a slightly more succinct analysis of the team’s many shortcomings, perhaps – apropos of nothing – having a dig at some referee or another and definitely, absolutely definitely, complaining about the state of England’s pool. People emoted, people cared, they really did.Lapping it up: Fans in Sydney have throughly enjoyed the tournamentSocial media’s next step, though, was much more dispiriting: the sheer apathy and the desperate rush to flog quarter-final tickets. “Two tix to Scotland v Australia at Twickenham, Sunday 19th, Cat B – face value (that’s £215)” became an unerringly familiar refrain. And who could blame them? Pay that much in expectation of seeing your team, why not try to get rid? Without fail, the same posted pictures of themselves at that very game, because they had not managed to shift the tickets. A World Cup quarter-final, whoever is playing, could hardly be filed under “chore”, especially given their outlay, but fair play to them for showing. Since, the World Cup has not registered. I anticipate murmurs this weekend, but little more.There are those on your TVs and in your papers that will tell you the World Cup has charged on apace without England for the last couple of weeks, and will continue do so without any of the home nations this weekend. And, in a literal sense, they’re correct. The crowds have still shown up in their hoards (and been vocal in doing so), and the first round of finals rugby produced some glorious, riveting, heart-stopping stuff. The tournament didn’t need England and the World Cup has very much continued and will do for another week yet. Farewell: The colour the Irish fans brought has been missed in this last weekThe people saying such things are the people who would have been at these games anyway, and some of those are people who are paid to pump up the tournaments competitions tyres. They are people completely absorbed in the game and the tournament because that is their job, but a step back, away from the grounds and the games is required. It’s a lovely notion, that things have just continued being brilliant, but they need to use their imagination: what this World Cup could have been for rugby in this country.It could have been a tattoo, imprinted on the public consciousness and there to stay for good; instead it’s one of those transfers you get at a kids’ birthday party – washing off in the rain. Its lost its fizz and that’s a shame. Make no mistake, it’s been a wonderful, absorbing World Cup for rugby fans, but the last fortnight has proved that the non-believers will continue on their merry way, because the Northern Hemisphere sides stunk the place out. It’s been the World Cup of what-ifs.last_img read more

What are the top Internet Scams?

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Photo by on Unsplash Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By Dina MarkhurToday, criminals can reach victims much easier than before. Thanks to the internet, they can enter our offices, our homes, and every facet of our personal lives. What’s more, it often feels like there isn’t much we can do about it. The top internet scams range from ingenious phishing to online dating site scams with all kinds of creative tools and tactics. These scams often originate from unknown world regions, where justice is slow to catch up to perpetrators.This article will describe the most popular types of scams deployed to get unauthorized access to financial information or personal data. To check if you’ve been the victim of one of these scams, use Check People or similar verification service.PhishingPhishing accounts for over 33% of all security incidents at companies, says a recent F-Secure report. These types of scams keep evolving and have become a very real threat. They’re based on email communication or communication via social media. Criminals will often send users emails or messages to try to trick them into relinquishing sensitive or valuable data such as work or bank account login credentials. Social network and cloud storage user names and passwords can prove equally valuable.It usually appears that an official source sent these emails or messages, such as a legitimate company, social network representatives, or a bank institution. Social engineering techniques are applied to get a user to click on a malicious link and open a site that seems legitimate, but which the phishing scam perpetrator usually controls. The user is redirected to an access page that looks like the real site. The final and worst stage is when the user unwittingly provides personal information like their name and password.Greeting CardsWe get greeting cards by email from friends and family, no matter what holiday it is. This is a very common scam used by malicious entities to deploy malware and collect important information. If you click on the card, malware is downloaded and installed on your computer. This malicious software could be an irritating program that opens unexpected windows and pop-ads. If this happens, your computer becomes part of a bigger network and begins sending private information to a server that cybercriminals control.Hitman ExtortionWe didn’t believe many people would fall for this, but it seems they do. It’s when a criminal sends a threatening email to get you to give them money. Typically, they threaten that unless you pay them a large amount of money within a deadline set by them, they will kidnap one of your relatives. What makes the scam believable is they often have a large number of details about the victim, usually collected from their social media accounts, a personal blog, or an online account. Facebook has become one of the best places for internet scammers to choose victims. Safe computing measures are critical, especially when it comes to this social medium.Online Dating Site ScamYou can meet all kinds of people from anywhere on dating sites. Scammers will say they’re from exotic-sounding countries to sound impressive. Fraudulent dating sites have been abusing this scamming method for many years. They customize their approach by assessing the reactions of the potential victims, looking for lonely or gullible people.Interestingly, research shows the psychological methods and techniques scammers use in online dating and the methods applied in cases of domestic violence are similar.Fake Antivirus Software Scams“Your computer has been infected, download X right now to stop the damage” might be a painful reminder of the time you downloaded malicious antivirus software in an effort to stay safe. A legitimate software product will usually come with this same or a very similar message. By downloading fake antivirus software, a keylogger or Trojan can infect your system. One of the most threatening kinds of ransomware might also give this message, namely CryptoLocker. It can lock and encrypt your operating system and then ask for money to decrypt it.It’s a good idea to improve your online protection with special anti-malware security features working alongside an antivirus program of your choice. This will help you protect yourself against these and other internet scams. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Best tries of the Top 14 – Round 16

first_imgMonday Feb 23, 2009 Best tries of the Top 14 – Round 16 We have another Best Tries of the Top 14 video for you today, this time from last weekend’s Round 16 in the star studded top league of France.Round 16 produced a few classic matches with superb tries from Toulon, as featured here, Perpignan, Stade Francais, and Clermont Auvergne.Take note of Dan Carters deft kick through for the Maxime Mermoz try, coming in at number four on this vid. Carter showed the type of brilliance hes known for – making the complicated look easy.Unfortunately for Carter, Perpignan, and rugby fans all over the world, he was injured in the same match after a collision with opposite number Juan Martin Hernandez and will be out for some time.Maxime Medard finished off a fantastic Toulouse team try, but it was Toulon who feature strongly as we see some great touches in their match against Mont De Marsan.The thus far disappointing Sonny Bill Williams finally showed what he can do, scoring an excellently taken try, finally giving the fans something to get excited about. While still new to Union, and after a few injury problems, perhaps this will now be the spark he needs to lift his game to the high standards we all know hes capable of reaching.Enjoy the tries and feel free to leave your thoughts on your favourites, whether you think Sonny Bill will continue to improve, or if you think Dan Carters performances and subsequent injury is perhaps the biggest disappointment of the year so far.

Irish theologian attacks philanthropists

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Ireland A leading Irish theologian has criticised philanthropists in Ireland who make major charitable donations but remain outside the country to avoid paying tax. The remarks were made by Fr Enda McDonagh in an open letter to the Catholic Primate in the religious publication, the Furrow.Fr McDonagh, former professor of moral theology at St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, said the refusal to pay taxes in Ireland was an indication of where their priorities lie ‘however how many named gifts they offer to prestigious charities and institutions.’ Fr McDonagh said that in a fair society justice comes before charity and is the necessary precondition of authentic charity. His comments are thought to refer to some very high profile Irish donors from Ireland who make major contributions to educational and medical causes but are based outside Ireland to avoid paying tax in the country. Irish tax law allows them to maintain a base in Ireland but restricts the number of days they can spend in the country.

first_img News Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia January 4, 2021 UK court blocks US attempt to extradite Julian Assange, but leaves public interest reporting at risk US/UK : Julian Assange’s extradition hearing marred by barriers to open justice Receive email alerts November 26, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is relieved by the 4 January decision of UK District Judge Vanessa Baraitser blocking the United States’ attempt to extradite Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange, but is extremely disappointed by the court’s failure to reject the substance of the case, leaving the door open to further prosecutions on similar grounds. October 9, 2020 Find out more January 1, 2021 Find out more Organisation Although Judge Baraitser decided against extradition, the grounds for her decision were strictly based on Assange’s serious mental health issues and the conditions he would face in detention in the US. On the substantive points in the case – in which the US government has pursued Assange on 17 counts under the Espionage Act and one count under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act – the judge’s decision was heavily in favour of the prosecution’s arguments, and dismissive of the defence.“We are immensely relieved that Julian Assange will not be extradited to the US. At the same time, we are extremely disappointed that the court failed to take a stand for press freedom and journalistic protections, and we disagree with the judge’s assessment that the case was not politically motivated and was not centred on journalism and free speech. This decision leaves the door open for further similar prosecutions and will have a chilling effect on national security reporting around the world if the root issues are not addressed,” said RSF’ Director of International Campaigns, Rebecca Vincent. The US government has indicated that it intends to appeal the extradition decision. Assange remains detained on remand in high-security Belmarsh prison, pending the judge’s consideration of his bail application on 6 January. RSF calls again for his immediate release, and will continue to monitor proceedings.Despite extensive difficulties securing access – including refusal by the judge to accredit NGO observers and threats of arrest by police on the scene – RSF monitored the 4 January hearing at London’s Central Criminal Court (the Old Bailey), and has been the only NGO to monitor the full extradition proceedings against Assange.The UK and US are respectively ranked 35th and 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.
