The chairmen of Northern and Greencore, old friends Anthony Hobson and Ned Sullivan, thrashed out the make-up of the combined board in private meetings over the last three months. Hobson will become chairman of the enlarged group, with Sullivan as his deputy.Greencore’s chief executive Patrick Coveney was chosen to head the new company, leaving Northern’s chief executive out of the final line-up.A spokesperson for Northern Foods said the company would make an announcement about Barden’s future in due course. A source close to Barden said: “Stefan has given his full support to the merger. He is still working with the business during the interim period, helping to integrate the businesses, but after this he will move elsewhere.“He was fully in the loop during the negotiations but the two chairmen sat down and discussed the final line-up for the new board between themselves.”Northern’s Simon Herrick was appointed group finance director, after his Greencore counterpart Geoff Doherty decided to step down.“Putting the new board together was interesting,” Herrick told City A.M.. “My role was relatively easy, but the other roles were a bit trickier. But the chairmen of the two companies sorted the rest of the board.” center_img Share Barden left out of Essenta’s top team by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeWolf & ShepherdNFL Star Rob Gronkowski’s Favorite ShoesWolf & ShepherdBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure SolutionBlood Pressure For LifeWhy Doctors May No Longer Prescribe Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure For LifeDaily Finance StoriesChrissy Metz, 40, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoDaily Finance StoriesTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailLoan Insurance WealthHow Amal Clooney Looks Without Makeup Is Tough To HandleLoan Insurance WealthOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Times Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

Poland’s Totalizator Sportowy launches online casino

first_img Email Address Poland’s Totalizator Sportowy launches online casino State-owned Totalizator Sportowy has debuted its Playtech-powered platform TotalCasino.pl 6th December 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Polandcenter_img Casino & games Poland’s only legal online casino and lottery sites are now live after Totalizator Sportowy launched TotalCasino.pl and iLotto.pl.The website and mobile apps debuted on Wednesday (December 5) and offer slots, table games and lottery products. TotalCasino is powered by Playtech’s online casino platform, featuring a range of games from the supplier’s portfolio, while lottery products are supplied by International Game Technology (IGT).Under the terms of the country’s 2016 gambling market re-regulation, state-owned Totalizator Sportowy is the only company that can offer online casino and promotional lotteries in Poland. Totalizator Sportowy said the launch of the site had been the biggest challenge in its 60-year history, and it would monitor its impact on the Polish gambling sector.“This big step towards meeting the needs of customers means the digitisation and implementation of innovative and modern tools for online sales of products, as well as increasing Totalizator Sportowy’s revenues, and thus also increased funds transferred to the development of sport and culture,” said Olgierd Cieślik, Totalizator Sportowy’s president.“Remember that this is the beginning of a very important process of further development of our services. By implementing it, we will listen carefully to the opinions of our players.”Totalizator Sportowy, which was founded in 1956 and funds sports development in Poland, is also the only company that can operate slot parlours in the country under the terms of the 2016 Gambling Law, which was implemented from last April. Adding new products to its portfolio, the company saw a 21% year-on-year rise in net revenue from sales to PLN5.6bn (€1.5bn/$1.5bn) in 2017.There are now 14 operators with online sports betting licences in Poland after Totalizator Sportowy’s racing division Traf Zakłady Wzajemne obtained a permit earlier this week. Other licensees include Cherry, Fortuna and Betclic Everest.The regulated online market has grown significantly in the past year, with the Ministry of Finance reporting that it has helped total revenue for the sector expand by 22% year-on-year to €2.7bn in 2017. The government also noted that the licensed online operators’ market share had had risen to 40% by December 31, 2017.

Every stock market crash produces bargain shares! I’d grab these ones from the FTSE 100

I’d grab these ones from the FTSE 100 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Associated British Foods and Sage Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images. center_img You don’t need me to tell you the coronavirus pandemic caused the stock market to crash and delivered the potential to find bargain shares. First, it was the unknown economic impact of the virus that caused the market to move share prices down.And the move was rational because it was clear company profits would be affected. However, as so often happens, the stock market over-reacted and some share prices fell too far. Indeed, many investors will have done well from the bounce-back we’ve seen in some stocks already. My belief is for some firms, a longer recovery is still ahead. 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…Not all companies have bargain sharesAs events unfolded and companies began to report on how they’ve been coping in the crisis, the market adjusted for the new information. Of course, not all shares have bounced back. Some have even plunged lower still as the flow of company news arrived. Some sectors will contain businesses that have been damaged beyond repair. And those ones will probably not shape up as bargain shares right now.Take the hospitality sector, for example. Before the crisis, many companies were hanging on by a thread anyway. The market in the UK for restaurants and other eating establishments was over-supplied. Many chains and individual outlets were struggling. Revenues were low or intermittent and debts were often high.Indeed, when the furloughing arrangements have run their course, it wouldn’t surprise me to see many business owners in the sector throwing in the towel. One of the great things about social distancing and lockdowns is that it gives us plenty of time for thinking!My guess is that restaurateurs have had a chance to escape the daily grind of ‘fire-fighting’ within their often-troubled businesses. Now they’ve had the opportunity to look at the bigger picture, they may realise that continuing with their companies isn’t worth the trouble.Why take the risk?It may be that competition reduces in the hospitality and restaurant sector. But, as shareholders, it’s perhaps more important to avoid stocks that could go on to perform badly than it is to find the next big winner.So I’d avoid the sector. Indeed, the performance from ‘bad’ stocks can wipe out your advances from ‘good’ stocks, leaving you treading water with zero overall progress for years.Things look grim for airlines and travel companies too. We’re going to have to live with coronavirus for a while until a vaccine comes along. But lockdown and social distancing may have changed many people’s approach to life.In my own case, I’ve already resolved to eat out less often, to travel less frequently, and to spend more time picnicking and walking in the countryside instead of consuming things that cost money. Maybe others are thinking similarly?But I do like the shares of defensive, cash-generating businesses and believe many will recover well in the years ahead. For example, I’d aim to be a buyer now of FTSE 100 stocks such as British American Tobacco, Sage, SSE, Smith & Nephew, Next, CRH and Associated British Foods and several others.

Hideout project started in 2014 by developing a simple bamboo structure for a small bamboo house. Set on a river bank, the house offers a spectacular view of the lush jungle forest surrounding the house. The last couple of years did bring a lot of attention to bamboo as a sustainable and versatile building material here in Indonesia. Also thanks to the inspiring job of John Hardy and his family here in Bali.Save this picture!© Valentino LuisRecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesIn 2014 we saw and felt the contrast of bamboo being fast growing and easily accessible material that is native to Bali but manifesting so far only either as the low-quality material for cow sheds or as a luxurious material at few expensive accommodations. That is why Hideout project represents an idea something unique and accessible for all, who want to experience a night in a bamboo house.Save this picture!© Valentino LuisAll bamboo used during this project was harvested in local villages, reducing footprints of the construction. Bamboo from local mountains in Karangasem can be considered one of the best in Bali. Grown approximately 800m above the sea level, the sugar levels in the bamboo flesh are lower, they have great density, durability and tend to be more resilient to termites. Treatment is the key to success, we decided on a combination of natural treatment by smoke and non-toxic products.Save this picture!© Emily HutchinsonThe first house, called Hideout Bali, is built in a classic way with a saddle roof and a lot of open space. It is an all-bamboo construction with six main pillars and a thatched roof. The A-shaped roof provided a perfect opportunity for triangular windows, which are the most prominent design of the building. Benefiting from the tropical weather, house extends with beautiful outside shower, set under the trees in the garden. Wherever it was possible, trees serve their purpose in the house or in the garden, which almost gives you a feeling of living in a treehouse.Save this picture!© Jordan Hammond ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880118/hideout-jarmil-lhotak-plus-alena-fibichova Clipboard CopyHouses, Small Scale•Bali, Indonesia 2015 Area:  50 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Note: This project was originally published in 21 September, 2017Project gallerySee allShow lessPaddock Brow Guesthouse / Blee Halligan ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Tent / a21 studioSelected Projects Share Photographs Photographs:  Sasha Juliard, Valentino Luis, Jordan Hammond, Emily Hutchinson, Reis Junk Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Sasha Juliard+ 11Curated by María Francisca González Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/880118/hideout-jarmil-lhotak-plus-alena-fibichova Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStudio WNAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtherSmall ScaleBaliBambooIcebergIndonesiaPublished on June 23, 2019Cite: “Hideout / Studio WNA” 23 Jun 2019.

U.S. Moving Forward with WTO China Grains Case

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Moving Forward with WTO China Grains Case The United States is moving forward with a World Trade Organization case against China regarding tariff-rate quotas for agricultural products. The WTO said this week that the U.S. is requesting that the WTO set up a panel to investigate the tariff-rate quotas, a move that sets up a showdown between the two largest economies in the world. The tariff-rate quotas at question include tariffs for wheat, rice, and corn. The request was initiated by the Obama administration last year, and the Trump administration is moving forward with the format request. The U.S. Trade representative’s office last year said global prices for the three commodities were lower than China’s domestic prices; yet the country did not maximize its use of the tariff-rate quotas, which offer lower duties on a certain volume of imported grains every year. USTR said the lack of action by China limited market access for shipments from the United States, the world’s largest grain exporter, and other countries. Since then, Australia, the European Union, Canada, and Thailand have joined the dispute as third parties.The WTO Dispute Settlement Body will consider the request during a meeting August 31.Source: NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Aug 22, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleStudy Shows No Impact of RFS on Greenhouse GassesNext articleUSDA Launches Animal Welfare Database NAFB News Service U.S. Moving Forward with WTO China Grains Caselast_img read more

Hemp Production and Processing Rules Expected in September

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 28, 2019 Facebook Twitter SHARE Hemp Production and Processing Rules Expected in September The USDA is expected to issue new rules for growing and testing hemp sometime next month.Capital Press reports that has farmers feeling anxious about establishing consistent standards for producing the booming crop. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon tells the Capital Press that he expects the USDA to issue those regulations sometimes within the next two to four weeks.Wyden was one of the sponsors of legislation decriminalizing hemp in the 2018 Farm Bill.The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 passed with bipartisan support and classified hemp as an agricultural product.“I think it’s pretty obvious that you are on the right side of history,” Wyden said during remarks to a crowd at the Western U.S. Hemp Growers Conference and Expo on August 19 in Portland, Oregon. “You don’t have thousands of farmers moving into this space for nothing.”Hemp can be used to make multiple products like paper, textiles, clothing, and building materials.The primary use in the market today is for an extract called CBD Oil, which companies put into everything from cosmetics to beverage, touting health benefits.

Fourth case this year of journalist being forced to flee

first_img Organisation October 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Fourth case this year of journalist being forced to flee ColombiaAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Follow the news on Colombia Reports October 21, 2020 Find out more to go further News Reporters Without Borders calls on the government to take action in response to the problem of journalists being forced to flee their region or the country because of threats. The latest is Giovanni Alvarez of community radio La Nueva, who left on 19 October. It is the fourth case since the start of the year and the second this month. ColombiaAmericas 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders deplores the fact that Giovanni Alvarez, a community radio journalist who had criticised political corruption in the northern department of Atlántico, was forced to flee the country on 19 October after getting death threats. His departure brings the number of Colombian journalists who have fled their region or the country since the start of the year to four.“The forced departure of a journalist always represents a setback for press freedom and this year’s toll could match that of 2006, when a total of seven journalists were forced into hiding or exile,” the press freedom organisation said. “Alvarez’s departure comes just a few days after Gonzalo Guillén, the Colombia correspondent of the Miami-based El Nuevo Herald newspaper, had to take a similar decision.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We will wait for the initial results of the local investigation into the threats against Alvarez but we think the forced exile of journalists is an important issue that needs to be addressed at the national level. President Alvaro Uribe’s government is sometimes accused of press freedom violations and it needs to show a readiness to act in its defence.”Alvarez left the country on a flight from Barranquilla airport (700 km north of Bogotá) on 19 October, his son told the police. The family, which is getting police protection, does not know his current whereabouts. Aged 43 and employed by La Nueva community radio, Alvarez received death threats after talking on the air about cases of corruption involving regional politicians.El Nuevo Herald quoted police Col. Carlos Rodríguez as saying: “We knew that an attack on Alvarez was due to take place by 28 October. We have not yet identified where the threats are coming from, but the investigation is continuing.”Guillén left the country on 4 October because of death threats received after President Uribe accused him of helping to write a book referring to his alleged links with drug trafficker Pablo Escobar. Guillén suspected the threats came from contract killers in the pay of paramilitaries (see 4 October release).Radio Caracol news director Darío Arizmendi Posada left Colombia on 8 March under threat from an unidentified group (see 19 March release). Germán Hernández Vera, the editor of the Diario del Huila, a daily based in the southwestern city of Neiva, did the same two weeks later because he had long been in the sights of the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) (see release of 27 March).Reporters Without Borders has learned that Hollman Morris, producer and host of the investigative programme “Contravía” on the state-owned Canal Uno TV station, also left the country on 21 October after threats from a mysterious paramilitary offshoot calling itself the “Patriotic Front.” Morris has decided to move with his family temporarily to the United States, where he is to receive an award from Human Rights Watch.“This prize gives Hollman the chance to remove himself from danger and rest for a while, but he is not planning to stay away for too long,” one of his friends told Reporters Without Borders.A strong critic of President Alvaro Uribe, Morris is one of the leading specialists in Colombia’s civil war. He previously went into self-imposed exile in 2005 after being threatened by paramilitaries, who accused him of being in the pay of the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). The paramilitaries even produced and circulated a video that portrayed as a FARC spokesman.
