Stadtcasino Baden generates CHF7.6m from igaming in 2019

first_img Switzerland’s Stadtcasino Baden Group, operator of Grand Casino Baden and co-owner of Casino Davos, has revealed that it generated revenue of CHF7.6m (£6.3m/€7.2m/$7.8m) through the launch of online gaming in 2019.

Casino Davos, which it co-owns with Belgium’s Ardent Group and the Davos Tourism Organisation, added revenue of CHF2.1m, up 14.6%.Visitor numbers were up 3.7% for the Baden property, and 2.9% for Casino Davos.Having been launched first in the market, and from July, Jackpots.ch revenue for 2019 amounted to CHF6.3m. Casino Davos’ igaming brand, Casino777.ch, which launched in September last year, added a further CHF1.3m.Jackpots.ch is powered by Gamanza, the igaming platform provider in which the operator holds a 50% stake, while Casino777 uses a platform provided by Ardent Group’s B2B subsidiary Gaming1.The operator contributed CHF36.3m of revenue to Switzerland’s national pension fund Alters- und Hinterlassenenversicherung (AHV), while start-up costs related to igaming resulted in its profit for 2019 declining to CHF3.6m, compared to CHF7.3m in the prior year.As a result of Switzerland’s casinos being closed in March this year, as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19), the igaming operations are currently the only sources of revenue for the operator.However, Stadtcasino Baden Group chief executive Detlef Brose said that strong performance in previous years put the business in a position to withstand the impact of the crisis. He said that while employees had been moved to short-term working, layoffs were not currently being considered, and all staff were still being paid in full.The operator has already provided hygiene masks to two old peoples’ homes, as well as providing use of a parking garage to staff of a rehabilitation centre free of charge. It has also made a donation of CFH5,000, as well as food, to the cantonal hospital in Aargau, where Baden is based, and is supporting sports clubs through sponsorship agreements.The operator is also supported by the igaming revenue, which Brose admitted was still relatively small considering the market had only recently gone live, and was still attracting players away from unlicensed sites.“In the past few months we have expanded our range of games considerably, which has also had a positive impact on sales,” he said. “In this way, we can at least partially compensate for the lack of revenue from our traditional business.”Furthermore, he added, its 50% stake in Gamanza would provide additional revenue as it signs up new clients, with negotiations underway with a number of potential partners.However, Brose admitted that it was unclear how quickly the land-based business would recover once the venues were allowed to reopen.“We had two excellent months at the beginning of the year and want to build on them after the crisis, as well as continuing to develop positively in online gaming,” he said.mage: CasinoDavos.ch Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Casino & games Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Switzerland Email Addresslast_img read more

Learning by giving: How today’s students can become tomorrow’s philanthropists

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. From theconversation.com.If someone asked you to picture a philanthropist, chances are a billionaire like Bill Gates or John D. Rockefeller Sr. would come to mind. But not all philanthropists are billionaires, or even millionaires for that matter. People who make modest gifts of time or money can make a big difference in their communities.We are professors who teach and do research about philanthropy, the practice of expressing generosity by giving away money and in some cases time. We see our job as motivating and preparing college and graduate students to become future leaders of nonprofit organizations or donors with good ideas about how to make a difference – starting right now.Teaching about givingOne approach, known as “experiential philanthropy,” teaches about charitable giving through hands-on experiences. Students get real money, typically about US$10,000 per class, to give away to local nonprofits. One of us (David) has determined that these courses are being taught on more than 80 different campuses.Northern Kentucky University pioneered this approach in 1999. Since then, students there have collectively awarded more than $1.5 million to local charities as part of their coursework.A wealthy donor, Geoffrey P. Raynor, is building on that model through the Philanthropy Lab. So far, this national initiative has spread to more than 20 universities, including many attended by the nation’s richest students, such as Princeton and the University of Chicago.These courses are for all students, however. Undergraduates majoring in everything from chemistry to philosophy and business to history enroll. While some of them are or want to become rich, others do not come from wealth or aspire to become upper-class. All of them sign up because they want to learn how to use their money and time to make change on the issues they care most about.Learning by doing can help turn students into philanthropists. Rawpixel.com/Shutterstock.comDoes it work?Giving away money – particularly when it’s not yours – can be fun. But does it actually teach students anything about philanthropy or how to become philanthropists?To find out, one of us (Lindsey) led a study published in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly that surveyed more than 600 Northern Kentucky University students who had taken an experiential philanthropy course there from 2009 to 2013.The research team found that students were more interested in donating to and volunteering at local nonprofits after taking the course. They were also more likely to know more about issues affecting their community and what nonprofits were doing about them.Our findings suggest that by studying – and actually engaging in – philanthropy, students learn more about what philanthropy is, why they should do it and how they can make a difference.Paying for itWhile the logic behind these programs may be clear, the question of where the money students give away comes from is not because it’s not something covered in a traditional university budget.So far, foundations like the Learning by Giving Foundation, founded by philanthropist Doris Buffett – Warren Buffett’s sister – and the Once Upon a Time Foundation, funded by the same person as the Philanthropy Lab, are a leading source of financial support.Doris Buffett’s Learning by Giving Foundation funds undergraduate courses at colleges and universities across the country that offer for-credit courses that combine the study of theory with the practice of philanthropy.The federal government has also pitched in to support a program called Pay it Forward, which engages college students in hands-on philanthropy, grant-making and volunteer service. However, Congress abolished that funding in 2011. Its courses are being taught today only in Ohio, where local foundations foot the bill, at campuses like Denison University, The Ohio State University-Newark, Central Ohio Technical College and the University of Cincinnati.Cutting these programs means that young people will be less likely to be able to take philanthropy courses in college. This is troubling, because one of us (Jodi) found that after having opportunities to be actively engaged in giving with a group of peers, young people can better understand philanthropy’s impact.That’s because after learning through these hands-on philanthropic experiences, students often want to donate their own money to nonprofits.Many other kinds of courses about philanthropy and nonprofits are taught at U.S. and foreign universities. But experiential philanthropy is different because students gain practical knowledge and skills. Whether a class gives away $200 or $2,000, they become equipped for future leadership in the charitable world.Education is, to a degree, about investing in the potential of students. And philanthropic education gets students to think about their responsibilities to invest in the communities in which they live. It helps them see the power they have to make a difference.

Brazilian autoworkers strike back against layoffs

first_imgOn Aug. 8, General Motors do Brasil, which has four plants in the country, announced there would be 798 workers permanently laid off at its São José dos Campos plant. There was no advance notice; the layoffs began immediately for the first 300 workers. In less than 24 hours, the Metalworkers Union of São José dos Campos launched a strike to save the workers’ jobs.“GM has high profits and does not justify these layoffs,” union Vice President Herbert Claros stated in an email to international supporters. “Workers who have been laid off and their families understand that these dismissals are unfair and therefore are getting strong on the picket line.” GM tried to justify the layoffs by claiming there is a sales crisis. In fact, car sales in the U.S. are above pre-recession levels and profits continue to reach levels unseen in GM’s hundred-plus year history.During the course of the 12-day strike, the union held mass assemblies of workers and staged a half-hour highway blockade. This was the second strike at the plant this year, the first being a stay-in “standstill” in January that forced GM to cancel planned layoffs.On Aug. 22, GM and the union reached a settlement. The permanent layoffs would all be converted to five-month temporary layoffs. On Aug. 24, at a mass assembly of 4,000 workers, union members voted to accept the settlement.Now Brazilian Volkswagen workers are on strike in the city of Taubaté. Like nearby São José dos Campos, this small industrial city lies about 60 miles northeast of São Paulo on the road to Rio de Janeiro. The strike, called by the Taubaté Metalworkers Union, began Aug. 17, the same day VW announced 100 permanent layoffs. As of Aug. 29, the strike is continuing.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EPA went for Compromise in Revising RFS Levels

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News EPA went for Compromise in Revising RFS Levels The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency tried to strike a balance between proponents and opponents of the Renewable Fuel Standards in setting levels for production of biofuels through 2016, said Purdue University energy policy specialist Wally Tyner.“Biodiesel appears to be a big winner with its mandate steadily growing over time and far exceeding the congressionally mandated level,” said Tyner, the James and Lois Ackerman Professor of Agricultural Economics.For corn ethanol, Tyner said the EPA accepted arguments that the “blend wall” is a legitimate barrier to significantly increased production and did not accept arguments that E85 fuel would grow if the EPA mandated higher ethanol levels. But its 2016 mandate of 14 billion gallons requires some growth of E85 and E15 without reaching the original legislated level of 15 billion gallons.“Thus, it is a compromise position,” Tyner said.The EPA proposed total renewable fuels production at 15.93 billion gallons for 2014 – the actual production for that year – 16.30 billion for 2015 and 17.40 billon for 2016.The RFS has been a topic of debate for several years in part because of the corn ethanol blend wall, which is a bit less than 10 percent of national gasoline consumption, currently at 135 billion gallons per year. Most gasoline in the U.S. is consumed as a 10 percent ethanol blend.The proposal now goes through a public comment period, which ends July 27. The EPA then will make its final decision in the fall.Tyner explained the EPA’s balancing approach, with gallon figures for each biofuel for 2014, ’15 and ’16:* Cellulosic (33 million, 106 million, 206 million):  EPA essentially used data on existing and projected future plants and set the RFS mandate to match the projected production levels. It other words, it is a “build it and we will come” approach. The original legislated level for 2016 was 4.25 billion gallons.* Biodiesel (1.63 billion, 1.70 billion, 1.80 billion): The original congressional mandate was for at least 1 billion gallons, and the 2016 level reaches 1.8 billion gallons. “EPA believes that the market can provide and absorb significant increases for biodiesel.”* Conventional (13.25 billion, 13.40 billion, 14.00 billion): EPA allows small growth in the implied corn ethanol mandate. Essentially, the EPA believes the blend wall is a strong barrier, with little possibility for increasing E85 or E15 fuel. EPA set the 2015 level essentially at the 10 percent blending level. Ethanol producers believe that the market could absorb higher levels. EPA’s 2016 level assumes some consumption beyond the E10 blend wall.* Other advanced biofuels (202 million, 244 million, 494 million): EPA set these levels fairly low with some growth over the period. Ethanol from sugarcane can be used in this category. Also, biodiesel and cellulosic biofuel can be used here. “So, in fact, even more biodiesel could be used to meet the ‘other advanced’ mandate.”Source: Purdue News By Andy Eubank – May 31, 2015 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter EPA went for Compromise in Revising RFS Levels SHARE SHARE Previous articleSoybean Farmers need Improved U.S. InfrastructureNext articleEPA Proposed RFS Rule Falls Short Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Authorities step up harassment of Zeng Jinyan ahead of husband’s release

first_imgNews RSF_en ChinaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on China News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific center_img Receive email alerts Organisation Reporters Without Borders urges the Chinese authorities to quickly explain what has happened to Zeng Jinyan, the wife of jailed Chinese dissident Hu Jia and a human rights blogger in her own right, and to guarantee her freedom of movement and safety.After flying to Beijing yesterday from Shenzen, where she had been living since April, Zeng appears to have posted news of herself today on Twitter with the aim of quashing rumours about her possible disappearance. But it is impossible to say whether she posted the two Tweets herself or whether she posted them of her own free will.The first Tweet said: “As I was getting off the plane, eight people came and took me away, they even took my luggage.” The second one said: “I think this is how life is going to be after (Hu Jia is released).”Zeng did not identify the eight people but it is safe to assume they were officials of some kind. Reporters Without Borders fears that she has been placed under house arrest ahead of her prominent husband’s release on completion of a three-and-a-half-year jail sentence, which is due to take place on 26 June.Later today there was third Tweet that was astonishingly relaxed in tone: “I have just got home. I am going to cook tofu and tomatoes. I don’t know if it will be good. I saw Hu Jia today. I asked him if he was taking care of himself. There is still time for that. Media friends, my apologies and thank you for your concern.”“If Zeng Jinyan is about to be or has been placed under house arrest, the Chinese government would be guilt of arbitrary detention of a completely illegal kind,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It would culminate the years of constant harassment to which the couple has been subjected because of their activism. And it would be a slap in the face for the international community, which has repeatedly voiced its support for Hu and Zeng.“It would also make the true intentions of the Chinese authorities clear. Hu’s much awaited release would be just a smokescreen. The couple would be prevented from leading a normal life and, above all, from expressing their views amid a heightened crackdown on dissidents in general. We call for Hu’s immediate and unconditional release and concrete guarantees as regards the couple’s freedom of movement and expression.”Zeng has been under close surveillance ever since her husband’s arrest in December 2007. Just weeks ago, the Chinese authorities had Zeng and her small daughter evicted from the apartment they had rented in Shenzen.A campaigner on behalf of AIDS sufferers and the environment, Hu was sentenced in April 2008 to three and a half years in prison on a charge of inciting subversion of state authority. The European Parliament awarded him its Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in October 2008.Instead of freeing dissidents when they complete their jail sentences, the authorities have for months been covertly placing them under house arrest or, more disturbingly, engineering their disappearance. It seems that the government has decided that it will never fully release prisoners of conscience. Instead, it does everything possible to isolate them from their families and the rest of society, by cutting their means of communication and restricting their movements.Writers, lawyers, human rights activists and other dissidents receive similar treatment. Their phone lines and Internet service are disconnected in order to cut them off from the outside world.Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns such behaviour, which violates international law and has the effect of imposing life sentences on all former prisoners of conscience.Reporters Without Borders published a report last March about the Chinese “justice” system’s use of such iniquitous methods. China is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet” and is ranked 171st out of 178 countries in its latest press freedom index.

(Credit: City of Pasadena)Pasadena marked three full weeks without a single COVID-19 death reported in the city as two new infections were detected on Friday.The new cases raised the city’s pandemic total slightly to 11,280 confirmed cases of the virus, according to Pasadena Public Health Department data.With no fatalities reported since April 30, the local death toll has held steady at 346.“We’re making significant progress and continue to host vaccination clinics almost daily at churches, schools and other venues where people know each other and encourage one another to get vaccinated so these respective groups can get back to their everyday routines,” city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.The city’s average number of daily infections over the prior week stood at 1.7, records show.Officials reported on Tuesday that more than 64% of the city population over 12 years old had been fully vaccinated. Vaccination efforts have continued through the week, however and updated figure was not availableLos Angeles County public health officials reported detecting 264 new infections, along with 15 fatalities, on Friday.In all, the county had documented 1,238,367 COVID-19 infections and 24,154 fatalities, according to the L.A. County Department of Public Health. The daily positivity rate was measured at 0.4%.The county planned to align with the state’s plans regarding a full reopening on June 15, “that ease many capacity limits and distancing requirements and adopt CDC’s masking guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” county officials said in a written statement. “People who are fully vaccinated will no longer need to wear masks in most situations.There are specific requirements for large capacity indoor events.”County officials also intended to lift travel restrictions on June 15, bringing local recommendations in line with CDC guidelines, the statement said. “Current County reopening protocols will be amended or retired on June 15 to reflect these changes.”Ferrer said she, “like everyone in California,” was looking forward to June 15.“Together, we all worked hard and continue to work hard to keep numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths low in L.A. County,” she said. “I can’t emphasize enough how the vaccine has allowed us to get to a place where we can safely do the things that we loved to do before the pandemic.”“If you have been putting off getting vaccinated, I ask that you not delay any longer,” Ferrer added. “The COVID-19 infection, hospitalizations and deaths that are still occurring are almost all among people not fully vaccinated. This is preventable.”The California Department of Public Health announced 1,627 new infections and 69 deaths on Friday, which brought the pandemic totals 3,670,469 cases of COVID-19 and 61.672 fatalities.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week held steady at 1.7%.As of Friday, L.A. County represented 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 39% of the state’s deaths.

Home alone elderly woman confronted by 22-year-old

first_imgNewsLocal NewsHome alone elderly woman confronted by 22-year-oldBy admin – July 31, 2012 835 A PROBATION report has been ordered for a convicted drug addict who kicked open the bedroom door of an old age pensioner in search of money while she slept.  Ray Tully of O’Donnoghue Avenue, Janesboro, pleaded guilty at Limerick Circuit Court to the burglary of the home of his 86-year-old neighbour on June 3, 2011. Tully pleaded guilty to burglary and to criminal damage at the address after he gained entry to the house by breaking a downstairs window.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up State evidence was given where an elderly lady was home alone on the night in question, when she was confronted by a raider who kicked open her locked bedroom door before he fled the scene.The pensioner contacted her nephew who, in turn, contacted Roxboro Garda Station.Tully was arrested two days later and made admissions to breaking the window and causing the damage valued at €500 and entering the property in search of money to feed his drug habit.“I was stoned out of my head,” he told gardai when questioned about the incident, “but I wish I could apologise to that lady now”.The woman, who suffered no injury only the trauma of the frightful experience, it was said, had locked her bedroom door for security reasons as she lived alone.Tully told gardai that he thought the house was unoccupied and that there might be something contained in the locked room.The court heard that the accused had previous convictions for criminal damage, possession of drugs and public order incidents. He also had convictions for the possession of a knife and certain implements as well as for theft.22-year-old Tully received a short sentence for a similar burglary matter, Judge Carroll Moran heard, and that he was on remand since December 11 last.Mark Nicholas, defence counsel, said that the accused fell into heroin addiction when he was 15 and that issues developed connected to his drug taking.The court heard that Tully immediately left upon finding the pensioner inside and that it was not a “clever” crime and something that was more “spontaneous” than anything else.He added that Tully was dealing with his addictions, and a letter from his drug counsellor was furnished to the court.Judge Carroll Moran adjourned the matter until October 2 next, remanded the accused in custody and asked for an updated report from the Probation Services.
