Odds for a White Xmas slashed

first_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Odds for a White Xmas slashed Bookmakers have shortened the odds on a white Christmas, as weatherforecasters warn of an icy blast on its way later this week. With less than a fortnight to go until Christmas, temperatures are set to drop as winds from the north bring a band of rain and high winds tomorrow. The Met Office expects the wintry weather to last, with snow very probable over the Christmas weekend. On 25 December, snow is the most likely to fall in Aberdeen, with oddsof 9/4, followed by Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow, with odds of 3/1at bookmaker William Hill. For Leeds, Liverpool and London, the odds of snow falling on Christmas day are 4/1. One flake of snow must fall on monitoring stations for the payout to be made.

WH and Betfair warned after ads appear in Looney Tunes app

first_img Email Address Casino & games 19th June 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Social gaming Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Regions: UK & Ireland WH and Betfair warned after ads appear in Looney Tunes app The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has warned William Hill and Flutter Entertainment to refine how their advertising targeting strategies, after promotions for each operator appeared in an app seen as being of particular appeal to minors. The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has warned William Hill and Flutter Entertainment to refine how their advertising targeting strategies, after promotions for each operator appeared in an app seen as being of particular appeal to minors.In February 2019, an ad for Flutter’s Betfair Bingo brand appeared in Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem, an app where players build worlds based on Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes cartoons and collect characters such as Bugs Bunny and Tweety Pie.That same month, an ad for William Hill Vegas also appeared in the app, prompting the ASA to query whether these were appropriately targeted.Flutter Entertainment responded by saying that the ad had been placed by mobile engagement platform Tapjoy. Following the ASA’s complaint, it discovered that the app’s publisher Scopely had mistakenly opted in to accepting advertising content at a ‘mature-plus’ level for the app.Tapjoy said it had immediately corrected the error once it was flagged by Scopely, with Flutter noting that once the issue had been fixed, it had stopped working with the engagement platform.Scopely, however, said the ad was inadvertently placed by Tapjoy, and that it had been assured that the issue would not occur again.William Hill also said the fault lay with the game publisher, but added that it should not have appeared in the app regardless of who was at fault. It had blacklisted the app, meaning its ads would no longer appear in Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem, via Tapjoy or any other affiliate.Tapjoy also looked to play down the issue of children using the app and seeing the gambling ads. It said that while adults of a certain age associated the Looney Tunes with their childhood, the app used characters and entertainment properties dating back to the 1930s and 40s. As a result of the mistake, ads for Annexio’s LottoGo EuroMillions and MT SecureTrade’s Dunder app also appeared in Looney Tunes: World of Mayhem.However the ASA upheld its complaint, pointing out that the app had a PEGI 7 rating in the UK Google Play store, meaning it was suitable for players aged seven and above.“Given the use of cartoon characters, cartoonish violence and the relatively simple nature of the game, we considered it was likely to appeal to many under-18s,” it said.It did acknowledge that the characters would be well-known to older players, meaning the game would have more general appeal. It also conceded that the ad had been correctly labelled as ‘mature gambling’, and as such should only have appeared in apps that had opted in to carry such ads. Action had been taken promptly to correct the error, the ASA added.However, it added that the app was likely to be of particular appeal to minors, and that its player base was likely to include under-18s. It noted that Tapjoy’s platform allowed advertisers to target campaigns using interest-based data gathered from gaming preferences and self-reported demographic data, such as dates of birth.Neither William Hill nor Flutter had used these options. As such both were found to be in breach of CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 16.1, relating to the requirement for ads to be socially responsible, and 16.3.13, which states that gambling ads must not be directed at minors.The ads must not be used again without specific targeting to minimise the likelihood of under-18s seeing them. William Hill, Flutter and Tapjoy were all warned to ensure ads were appropriately targeted in future.

3 FTSE 250 growth stocks I’d buy right now

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Roland Head Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Where should we look for growth right now? In my view the opportunity lies in finding individual companies that are performing well, rather than targeting whole sectors.The three shares I’ve selected for this piece are all members of the FTSE 250, which has risen by 30% over the last five years. That’s a respectable performance, but my stocks have all beaten this market since 2015.5G 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…A gaming winner?As a general rule, I think online gambling stocks are a better bet than high street bookmakers. But one company with land-based operations that I rate highly is Rank Group (LSE: RNK), which owns Grosvenor Casinos and Mecca Bingo.This week’s half-year results revealed that net gaming revenue from these venues rose by 10% to £312.3m during the second half of 2019. Although the company does have some online operations, these are still playing catch-up – revenue rose by 14% to £65.2m during the same period.The good news for shareholders is that operating profit rose by 70% to £55.1m, on an underlying basis. This is down to an effect known as ‘operational leverage’. In short, if sales rise when costs are mostly fixed, then profits will rise much more quickly than sales.Rank shares have risen by 77% since the end of August, but rising profits mean they still look reasonably priced to me, on 12 times 2020–21 forecast earnings. I remain a buyer.An emerging market opportunityChief executive Mark Coombs owns 37% of emerging market asset manager Ashmore Group (LSE: ASHM). His leadership of the company he founded is one reason why I’m a big fan of this stock.The other reason I like Ashmore is that Coombs’ track record suggest he and his team have a good grasp of the investment opportunities available in emerging market debt.This specialist area isn’t the kind of investment where you can easily dabble with small amounts. You need a big stack of cash and a lot of specialist knowledge to be in with a chance of making money.Ashmore ticks both of these boxes. Assets under management rose by 24% to $91.8bn last year, during which the company generated a return on equity of more than 20%.The shares look fully priced on 18 times forecast earnings. But there’s a 3.3% dividend yield and I think this business has the potential to keep growing. I’d be happy to buy Ashmore for a long-term portfolio.This double bagger could keep goingCatering firm SSP Group (LSE: SSPG) operates branded food outlets in travel locations, such as airports and railway stations. Some of these are operated on behalf of firms like Burger King, Jamie Oliver, and Starbucks. Others belong to SSP, such as Upper Crust and Ritazza.SSP’s operations span 2,800 units in 35 countries. The company has been in business for 50 years but only floated on the London market in 2014. The shares have risen by 165% since then, but in my view the business still only looks slightly expensive.As far as I can see, this is an excellent business operationally, providing good service in many locations. The main risk I can see is that a global recession could cause sales to slow in a number of major markets. So far there’s no sign of this.The stock is pricey on 21 times forecast earnings, but I believe long-term growth prospects remain strong and I would remain a buyer. 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.

Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! For years, interest rates have crept lower and lower. Inflation, once a value-destroying attacker that mercilessly stalked the economy, seems to many people like a distant memory.But inflation is typically part of the economic cycle. While some people believe inflation is defeated, many experts expect that, in future, inflation could come back with a vengeance. When that happens, some assets are worth less because the currency is effectively devalued. That is why some investors like to invest in a ‘store of value’, which they think can shield them against inflation. Some shares can be a store of value against inflation. Here are three UK shares I’d buy now to try and beat inflation.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…High income – and pricing powerI like tobacco stocks in general because they often have high dividend yields. For example, Imperial Brands currently yields almost 10%. That is a very agreeable return in my opinion. Of course, dividends can be cut – Imperial cut its last year, in fact. But I think the company’s new strategy of focusing on cigarette brands in its biggest markets should help it improve its income for many years to come.But another reason I like dividend stocks is because they act as a store of value. If rapid inflation sets in, some companies find it hard to pass on the full price impact to customers. That means their profit margins fall. Inflation-reduced income could hurt such UK shares.But some product and service categories are able to pass inflation on to their customers in the form of a price increase. A lot of utilities can do so, as their pricing agreements with regulators tie price increases to the inflation rate. Similarly, tobacco companies have a lot of pricing power because consumers crave their product. So typically they can pass on inflation by way of price rises too. There is always a limit: too high a price rise could put off some fairly hardened smokers. But in general I like tobacco shares as a store of value, which is one reason I own Imperial shares.These UK shares benefit from luxury spendingAnother type of share that can do well as a store of value is shares in luxury companies. Companies providing expensive, high-margin products to well-heeled customers often have flexibility to increase prices. A customer at Tesco might notice if a packet of potatoes is 10p more expensive than at Sainsbury’s, for example. But someone buying a sports car or items of high fashion is less likely to be as fixated on price. Instead they look at the attractiveness of the brand and product.So I think fashion house Burberry, for example, could be a good choice among UK shares to beat inflation. The company’s exposure to the East Asia has helped it recover from the pandemic while European markets are closed. Its shares are up almost 30% in the past three months. Ongoing lockdowns in some markets could cut income, and recession could damage luxury spending. But I would consider buying them now to try and beat inflation.

Katy McLean to captain England

first_imgMcLean added: “I have been lucky to captain England a couple of times so I have the experience, but even so it is a massive difference from being vice captain. Catherine did an amazing job captaining her country, it was an honour to be her vice, and I am sure I will be seeking her advice throughout the season.“This is a new start, however, a new four year cycle to the next world cup, and a lot of new players have come in so I am extremely excited for them to show their potential and I will certainly do my best to support them as well as my more established teammates.“I can’t wait for the Six Nations to kick off. Wales is always a tough game and it will be even tougher since we are in Wales so as a side we need to ensure we build on our world cup performances and set up a good marker for ourselves.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS England Head Coach Gary Street added: “For a young player Katy has a wealth of experience behind her and she is an incredibly influential tactician on the pitch. When she’s previously stood in as captain she has led the team tremendously well and certainly her vice captain experience puts her in good stead.”center_img Darlington Mowden Park Sharks fly half Katy McLean has been named as the new captain of the England Women’s team.McLean, who has 38 caps, takes over the captaincy armband from Catherine Spencer who stepped down last week.The 25-year-old was vice captain of England in 2009 and 2010 and stepped up to skipper England during the recent Women’s Rugby World Cup when Spencer was rested.“It’s a massive honour to be England captain, a dream I have had since I started playing,” said McLean, who lives in Gateshead and is studying to become a teacher. “There are so many natural leaders in our squad that it makes it even harder to believe they have asked me.”McLean won’t have to wait long to lead her side on international duty with the RBS 6 Nations just around the corner.  England kick off their campaign as well as their defence of their grand slam crown on February 6th away against Wales.last_img read more

It’s designed as a time to celebrate and support small businesses and their contributions to their communities.American Express launched Small Business Saturday in 2010 as a way to bolster community businesses in the middle of an economic recession. It has since become an annual shopping tradition on the Saturday following Thanksgiving.“What began nine years ago as an effort to support local stores during the holiday shopping season has become the Shop Small movement, bringing together millions of shoppers, small businesses of all kinds, civic leaders and organizations in thousands of towns and cities across the country,” said Elizabeth Rutledge, Chief Marketing Officer at American Express. “Shopping small has a significant and positive effect on local communities, and we hope Small Business Saturday will help to amplify that effect during the crucial holiday shopping season. When we spend local, small businesses thrive. And when small businesses thrive, we all thrive.”In 2011, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution supporting the day and officials in all 50 states signed on with their backing for the promotion.By 2017, more than 7,200 businesses and organizations signed on to support Small Business Saturday. Since the event started, U.S. customers have reported spending an estimated $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants, including over $85 billion over eight days alone.You can go here to see which small businesses in Apopka are participating.

Plunkett Foundation celebrates 100 years of support for UK rural communities

first_img The Plunkett Foundation, which supports rural communities in setting up and running community-owned businesses, celebrates its centenary this year.To mark the centenary, the Plunkett Foundation will be holding a series of events throughout 2019 and launching enhanced services and new collaborations.To kick start the centenary celebrations, both Plunkett’s Staff and Trustees have been making visits to a number of community businesses to hear more about their impacts in their communities and plans for meeting community needs. The foundation will be sharing stories, case studies and films encouraging both members and supporters to join it in sharing their own #Plunkett100 stories throughout the year on its social media channels under that hashtag. Plunkett Foundation celebrates 100 years of support for UK rural communities  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Tagged with: anniversaries trusts and foundations The foundation launched on 17 January 1919, when Sir Horace Plunkett signed an indenture that became the original trust deed for the Plunkett Foundation. Its purpose was to promote the model of community ownership as a solution to rural problems.James Alcock, Executive Director, said:“Over the course of 100 years, the Foundation has constantly evolved its services in response to the changing environment in which rural communities operate, and in order to help them respond to the challenges of the time. What has remained constant over the century is the resilience of rural communities themselves, and the application of co-operative principles to help themselves through the model which today we refer to as community business. The centenary year is therefore a timely opportunity to be launching new initiatives from our 2018-22 strategy which will strengthen support for community business and I look forward to sharing further details throughout the year.”Margaret Clark CBE, Chair of Plunkett Foundation, said:“It is a tribute to Sir Horace’s forward thinking that his vision of communities coming together to form and run their own businesses for the benefit of locally is still as strong today. Indeed, it is even more relevant as rural communities across the country face the challenges of the future. But it also depends upon the extraordinary efforts of the people involved and I should like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed over the years – funders, partners, members, staff and Trustees for their help and support. At Plunkett Foundation, we look forward to carrying on the work started by Sir Horace into the future.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
