Meanwhile, rivals Ryanair carried 12 per cent more passengers during August after 7.68m customers turned to the budget airline.Despite this, Ryanair filled a smaller portion of its planes after 89 per cent of available seats on its aircraft were taken.The Dublin based airline has flown 70.9m people during the 12 months to August.However, this figure includes the 1.45m passengers who were either displaced or saw flights cancelled when European regulators closed airspace after an explosion of a volcano in Iceland.The numbers show an exodus from larger airlines, including British Airways, which reported August passenger traffic was down after it flew 3.154m customers last month. whatsapp Budget airlines fly a higher number of August passengers Share Monday 6 September 2010 8:34 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The total unemployment rate remains unchanged, at 7.7 per cent, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).The number of claimants – people out of work and receiving benefits – also fell, dropping by 3,700. The total number of people in employment increased 167,000 on the previous quarter, and by 320,000 people in the last two quarters – the highest growth rate since the late 1980s.Yet employment minister Chris Grayling warned that 5m people are still claiming out of work benefits. “We have to get our labour force ready for the recovery and our benefit claimants ready for the workplace”, he said.Much of the recent improvements have been driven by part time work. In the 12 months leading to the latest figures, part time jobs grew by 4.2 per cent, while full time jobs fell by 0.2 per cent.Average earnings for July to September were below inflation, up just two per cent on last year. Yet despite real earnings declining, there are signs of a business-driven recovery. “If the labour market remains flexible and onerous regulations are scrapped or at least suspended, the private sector should eventually be able to absorb the temporary job losses created by the fiscal austerity plan”, said David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).

Mybet set to file for insolvency

first_img Mybet set to file for insolvency AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling 14th August 2018 | By contenteditor Company set to collapse after investor talks fall throughcenter_img Topics: Finance Strategy Finance Mybet Holding’s management board confirmed this (Tuesday) afternoon that it is preparing an application to open insolvency proceedings after talks with a strategic investor collapsed.The board said in a statement that the company owes €4m (£3.5m/$4.5m) in sports betting taxes and faces “imminent illiquidity”.An application covering all three of mybet’s German group companies will be submitted to the relevant local court this Friday.Last month, mybet appeared to have secured a lifeline when a “non-exclusive term sheet” was signed with an unnamed investor for the Berlin-based online sports betting and casino company’s B2C online business.“The background for the application for the opening of insolvency proceedings is the failure of discussions with potential investors,” the company said in a statement.“Today, the discussions with a strategic investor reported… on July 13 regarding the possible sale of the online business of mybet Holding under the domain www.mybet.com were closed. These talks failed due to conditions set by the investors which could not be fulfilled.”The board also said that a contributing factor towards the initiation of insolvency proceedings was the decision of the Frankfurt Tax Office to reject an application filed by the group’s Malta-based company, Personal Exchange International, to suspend enforcement regarding outstanding sports betting taxes.When contacted by iGamingBusiness.com, an agency representing mybet said that the identity of the proposed investor, with whom talks had collapsed, would not be publicised due to a non-disclosure agreement.When asked about the impact of the insolvency proceedings on customers, the agency added to iGamingBusiness.com: “While insolvency procedures are under way, existing customers should not be affected as mybet operates under the Malta Gaming Authority license requirements which protect customers in numerous ways. The service continues to be available for customers until further notice. So currently there should be no effect.”Mybet’s share price has nosedived since the company announced on June 12 that it had curtailed talks with a potential investor after “differences of opinion concerning the implementation of strategic and operational collaboration in the online sector” emerged during a 30-day period of exclusive talks.

Spelinspektionen opens duty of care consultation

first_img Therefore, the regulator may intend to make the requirements a license condition if it receives positive feedback. 23rd October 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Compliance Regulation CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling It noted that ten plans failed to mention which indicators they used when monitoring players’ gambling, while the same number also also lacked a clear system for following up with players who show signs of excessive gambling.  Rather, measures would likely depend on individual players and have some degree of interpretation to them. However, the regulator added that, regardless of the results of the consultation, it would not be possible for a new duty of care framework to detail specific measures that guarantee an operator is living up to requirements. Social responsibility Spelinspektionen said all of these areas where it found some operators lacking were part of its view of “what an action plan should at least contain”. The regulator said it was working on creating a clearer duty of care plan, but wanted to hear from the industry first. “However, we would like to point out that it is not possible to give a specific answer as to which measures mean that the duty of care can be considered fulfilled, but it is in the nature of the duty that the measures taken must be adapted based on the individual.” Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen is opening a consultation on operators’ duty of care requirements, after finding many operators’ current plans lacking in June. The consultation closes on 5 November and responses may be sent to the Spelinspektionen via email. Other issues it found included inadequate explanations of when to apply restrictions on potential problem gamblers – with some operators only applying restrictions at their players’ request. Just under half of operators did not have a plan to contact players who had previously self-excluded to make sure they were gambling sustainably, the regulator’s research revealed. Spelinspektionen opens duty of care consultation Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden The consultation follows a June survey of all 67 licensed operators’ duty of care plans conducted in June, in which Spelinspektionen found that a large number of pans it examined were lacking in some way. Tags: Consultation Spelinspektionen Duty of Care “Spelinspektionen is working on a plan regarding duty of care and now, within the framework of this work, wants to take into account the wishes and thoughts of  members of the industry,” the regulator said.

Conquering Everest – the new book about the heroic Lions of 1997

first_img The 1997 Lions celebrate their incredible series win after the third Test at Ellis Park (Getty Images) The first Lions tour of the pro era produced one of the great upsets as world champions South Africa were stunned on home turf. A new book relives those extraordinary events LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rob Howley had a superb tour before injury hit (Inpho)Many of you will be familiar with the major incidents that peppered their progress. The disgusting kick by Marius Bosman that ended Doddie Weir’s tour in the match against Mpumalanga Pumas.The shoulder injury against Natal Sharks that brought Rob Howley such sorrow.The frightening moment when Will Greenwood swallowed his tongue against Orange Free State in Bloemfontein and Leonard had to stop Greenwood’s panic-stricken mum running onto the pitch while he was being treated.The Test series was one for the ages. The fear was that the Lions would be obliterated in the set-piece and have no platform to work off. The contrast in size was highlighted by the two looseheads: world champion Os du Randt, 6ft 3in and 22st, versus four-cap newbie Tom Smith, 5ft 10in and only a shade over 15st.The opening minutes at Newlands seemed to confirm those fears as the Lions were sent shuddering backwards in the first few scrums. But Smith, Wood and Paul Wallace steadied the ship, winning the technical battle. At times Wallace scrummaged with his nose almost on the floor but he kept his feet. And the Lions stayed in the fight.Matt Dawson reckons the try he scored with six minutes remaining came partly because the Boks didn’t know who he was – they just didn’t consider him a threat. When Alan Tait then crossed the line too, his gran was passing the Black Swan pub in Kelso as it happened and she heard a huge roar. “She said she thought the roof was going to blow away,” Tait says.The two tries, and the seismic 25-16 victory it brought, are among McGeechan’s happiest moments. “Sport can touch your soul,” says Sir Ian. “When you slow down some action and out of all the physicality comes a piece of sublime skill and balance within a physical context, there is a beauty about it.”Wallace, Wood and Smith prepare for a scrum during the opening Test in Cape Town (Getty Images)There was more unbearable drama and tension to come in the second Test, of course. The Boks had contributed mightily to their first-Test downfall through their malfunctioning lineout and errant kicking, three times putting the ball out on the full.In Durban, they scored three tries to none but missed six out of six kicks off the tee. In contrast, Neil Jenkins, who had only just made the tour after breaking his arm against England, landed five penalties and Jerry Guscott applied the coup de grâce with his late drop-goal. Austin Healey says he would have had a clear run to the line had Guscott passed and he was shouting “You greedy bastard!” as the Bath star delivered the series-clinching kick.Happy reading for Keith Wood, whose hack downfield led ultimately to the series-winning kick (Inpho)That is the bare bones of it but it’s the delicious detail that you will love in the book, like the fact that even today Stuart Hogg likes to mimic Telfer’s reaction to a break that Gregor Townsend made in the match that ended with him turning over possession. “No, no, Gregor, you’re wrong, you’re wrong, man!”Teichmann says the Boks deserved to win the second Test by 20 points and that it wasn’t a strong Lions team. A degree of arrogance undermined them throughout. When they hammered Tonga 74-10 in a warm-up game, Teichmann had said it wasn’t ideal preparation but that “we weren’t overly concerned – we were playing the Lions, not the All Blacks”.When Joost van der Westhuizen was asked to pay tribute to the Lions over the PA system at the end of the Boks’ 35-16 win in the third Test, he said, “Ja, well, we wanted to give them a klap [slap] and I’m pleased we did that today.” The Lions fans booed.“People talk about Gareth Edwards – Joost [above] was just as good,” says Neil Jenkins in the book (Inpho)The Lions won because of heart and desire, because they were more united. They won because of a tactical edge, as in the way they negated Honiball’s threat by targeting the support runners around him. They won because of selection, such as accommodating fly-half Jenkins at full-back due to his peerless goalkicking. And when they needed luck they got it.You feel South Africa never really gave the Lions the respect they deserved, that they view the series result as a freak aberration. The scars ran deep. John Smit and Bryan Habana have both spoken about avenging 1997 as a powerful motivation for the Boks that were next to have a crack at the Lions in 2009.Tragedy and misfortune has befallen many of the participants from 24 years ago. Van der Westhuizen (MND), Ruben Kruger (brain cancer) and James Small (heart attack) all died far, far too young. André Venter was left paralysed by a condition called transverse myelitis. Weir and Smith are waging similar poignant health battles.Du Plessis, now fighting cancer, was replaced soon after the 1997 series by Nick Mallett, who many felt should have had the job ahead of him.Rassie Erasmus, South Africa’s current director of rugby, made his Test debut in the Lions series (Getty)There are powerful words from many of those involved. The contribution of Tim Rodber, the midweek captain, is particularly compelling. Some players lost their way a bit, like Williams, John Bentley, Eric Miller. “I’d hoped to go in 2001 and 2005 but it didn’t flow like that,” says Miller, who was 21 at the time. “Every four years I go through a period of mourning.”And as for the tour video, with its heartbreaking scenes of injured players discovering their tour was over and the industrial language of the changing room (Wood swore 30 times in 34 seconds in one edited speech), Rory Best hits the nail on the end.“It was probably the first time that people got an insight into what it was like on tour. You’ll never get another rugby film like it,” says the former Ireland and Lions hooker.“Nowadays if that happened you’d get players behaving differently in front of the camera. They’d either be guarded because of what social media would do to them or they’d play up to the camera. It wouldn’t be natural, whereas in 1997 it was almost innocent.“We’re used to cameras being everywhere now but those guys weren’t. That tour was a major influence on a lot of international players that came after. Everybody’s watched that film.”* BUY NOW WITH AMAZONThis Is Your Everest by Tom English and Peter Burns is published by Polaris, RRP £17.99.We have six copies to give away in a competition – enter now for your chance to win.

TAGS: Book Review Conquering Everest – the new book about the heroic Lions of 1997There have been six previous British & Irish Lions tours in the pro era. If you were to rate them in order of significance, there could only be one winner – the 1997 trip to South Africa.That tour is the subject of a brilliant new book, This Is Your Everest, co-written by Tom English and Peter Burns for leading sports publishers Polaris.* BUY NOW WITH AMAZONAs the first Lions tour undertaken since the fall of amateurism, there was – incredible to think – a faction who felt the Lions no longer warranted a place amid the fulsome diet of domestic, European and international fixtures.Thus in some ways the 35-man squad that travelled south under the stewardship of Ian McGeechan, Jim Telfer and Fran Cotton were playing for the Lions’ very existence.Scotsmen Ian McGeechan and Jim Telfer were the brains behind the Lions’ unexpected triumph (Inpho)Political horse-trading had compromised the Lions in 1993 and head coach McGeechan wasn’t prepared to allow that to happen again. He accepted the job on the condition that he, assistant coach Telfer and team manager Cotton would have sole charge of selection.The squad they chose was full of surprises, even before you factor in the presence of six former rugby league players to help imbue professional standards.Will Greenwood was picked as an uncapped player (Inpho)For example, they ended up with three English scrum-halves on tour yet not one of them was England’s starting nine, Andy Gomarsall, from the 1997 Five Nations. They took two English centres yet left behind England’s championship midfield duo, Will Carling and Phil de Glanville.They took the third-choice Wales hooker, Barry Williams, and a Scottish prop, Tom Smith, who 18 months earlier had been turning out for Dundee HSFP’s second team.Skipper Martin Johnson admits he didn’t know Smith from a hole in the head before the tour. But then he himself, although an established international player, raised eyebrows because he had never captained a Test team. Cotton had rung Johnson’s mum for a character reference.Up against them were the reigning world champions. South Africa had the confidence borne of their natural self-belief and a decent winning run, yet the cracks were there.The Springboks were on their fifth head coach of the decade in Carel du Plessis – the previous incumbent, Andre Markgraaff, had resigned after being secretly recorded making racist comments. Du Plessis had been a world-class wing but had never been a head coach at any level. Many of his players were left bored and confused by his messages.Unequal pay was another thorn in South Africa’s side because the players who had won the World Cup in 1995 were on giant salaries while newcomers were getting peanuts in comparison. The likes of Henry Honiball, André Venter and Gary Teichmann – the captain – justifiably felt aggrieved. Honiball said he could earn more money just sitting on his farm.The Lions take on Emerging Springboks at Boland Stadium, a match the tourists won 51-22 (Getty Images)McGeechan likened the tour to playing ten Five Nations matches and three World Cup finals in the space of eight weeks. He also convinced his players that there would be no easy period in a game, let alone an easy game.This was a time before Twitter and camera phones, before you could jump on the Internet to look things up. The players lived in a bubble and their lives became the world of pain inflicted on them by Telfer in his infamous marathon scrum sessions or with his broom handle if they moved too high in ruck drills.Related content: Lions 2021 Latest NewsHooker Keith Wood, who finished the second Test in agony with a torn groin, says that the players weren’t actually fit enough to cope with what Telfer demanded – they pushed themselves beyond their limitations.The book is chock-full of fascinating insights from both camps, the authors adopting that part first-person chatty style that is the hallmark of many a Polaris sports publication.Forwards Martin Johnson, Eric Miller and Neil Back splash about in the sea near Durban (Inpho)The tour is famous not just because the Lions, huge underdogs, achieved a near miraculous series victory. It is synonymous with Living With Lions, a tour video watched by scores of players and fans in the subsequent decades and described by ex-Liverpool and England footballer Jamie Carragher as the best sports documentary he has ever seen.The film makers paid £30,000 for the rights and expected the BBC or ITV to jump in with funding. When they were told, ‘Sorry, the Lions will lose and no one will be interested’, director/producer Clive Rees remortgaged his house to keep the project alive.They put microphones on ‘Geech’ and Telfer every day, they gave video cams to players – “It was like giving lunatics machine guns!” said prop Graham Rowntree.A critical moment arrived on the day of the first game against Eastern Province, when Jason Leonard asked the film makers to leave the changing room as the Lions psyched themselves up. A hasty conversation with Cotton ensued and they were allowed to stay.Lawrence Dallaglio leads the charge during the Lions’ 39-11 win against Eastern Province (Getty Images)Living With Lions enthused a generation and the title of Polaris’s book, This Is Your Everest, alludes to a legendary speech from the video that Telfer made on the day of the first Test at Newlands. “I think I’ve watched that speech alone a hundred times,” says Kyle Sinckler, who gave renditions of it to team-mates on the 2017 tour. Watch Telfer’s Everest speech below.The book takes readers through the tour match by match, and how satisfying it is that the more the South Africans dismissed the Lions as soft or “pussy cats”, the more the Lions rammed such sentiments back down their throats.Apart from the dead rubber of the third Test, when the Lions were depleted because of injuries and illness, the tourists lost just once: 35-30 to the Blue Bulls (Northern Transvaal).Outside of the Tests, there were few bumps performance wise – the scrum against Western Province was one, which prompted Telfer’s wrath – and the Lions racked up some big scores with their fluid, high-tempo, handling game.last_img read more

Dietsche, his wife Margaret, and their family. PHOTO/Kara Flannery[Episcopal News Service] Andrew M. L. Dietsche was ordained and consecrated bishop coadjutor of the Episcopal Diocese of New York March 10 during a ceremony at a packed Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan.As bishop coadjutor, Dietsche has the automatic right of succession to the current bishop of New York, the Rt. Rev. Mark S. Sisk, who must retire before his 72nd birthday in August 2014.Dietsche, a resident of Poughkeepsie, has served since 2001 as the diocese’s canon for pastoral care. He was elected bishop by the diocesan clergy and by lay representatives of the diocese’s 199 parishes at a special convention held at the cathedral—the largest Gothic cathedral in the world—in November 2011.Some 2,500 people, including clergy and parishioners of the diocese, ecumenical and interfaith guests and civic leaders, among them former mayor New York David Dinkins, attended the consecration.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori led the service as chief consecrator and preached the sermon. Co-consecrating bishops included Sisk, Bishop of New Jersey George Councell, retired Bishop of New York Richard Frank Grein, Bishop of Long Island Lawrence C. Provenzano, Bishop of Michigan Wendell Nathaniel Gibbs, retired Bishop Suffragan of New York Catherine S. Roskam and Bishop Robert Alan Rimbo of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.The presiding bishop preached about Peter and the other disciples fishing on the Sea of Galilee, when Peter is told to, “‘feed my lambs, tend my sheep, feed my sheep.’”“Andy, you are named and blessed in this place to feed the sheep and tend the lambs, and to encourage those around you in doing the same,” the presiding bishop told Dietsche. “A good deal of your work will deal with the baptized, those already engaged in fishing or shepherding work – and your task is to remind them continually that they too are chosen, beloved, good creation, for they and we cannot love others unless we know ourselves well loved. But some of your work must attend to the sheep not of this fold, and the nations beyond this one, for the great banquet will not be complete until all are invited and gathered in to the wedding feast of the lamb.”“Your work must tend to the creatures of this great city, and the sheepfolds of rural New York, as well as the sheep of the nations. Some of the sheep around here will insist you aren’t spending enough time with them. That’s an opportunity to remind the sheep that they are also called to be shepherds, and for you to remember that you are a sheep, in need of rest and good pasture. The current bishop of New York can teach you something about the healing qualities of good grassland.”Together, the presiding bishop and the co-consecrating bishops gathered around and laid their hands on the new bishop’s head in a gesture symbolizing the unbroken connection of the line of bishops back to the earliest days of the church.Dietsche then for the first time put on his episcopal vestments, and was presented with a gold cross, an episcopal ring engraved with his seal, a miter, a Bible, and a crozier that he designed himself and that was made by a local craftsman using maple from the new bishop’s own garden.Following this, the presiding bishop presented him to the congregation, whereupon the clergy and congregation offered the traditional “acclamation and applause.”For a photo gallery click here.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Floridians worry about climate change more than most Americans, and the level of concern among Republicans in weather-battered South Florida is higher than among Republicans elsewhere in the country, according to a survey by the Florida-based Saint Leo University Polling Institute.About 75 percent of the 1,500 respondents said they are concerned about climate change, and nearly 40 percent reported they are “very concerned.”The level of concern is distinctly higher among Democrats than Republicans and between young people (ages 18 to 35) and older people (at least age 56), according to the polling results announced Monday.The findings are consistent with a larger survey by the Pew Research Center conducted in October, showing that 70 percent of its 11,0001 respondents consider climate a very important (42 percent) or somewhat important (26 percent) issue in voting for national leaders.Political scientist Frank Orlando, director of Saint Leo’s Polling Institute, said in the press announcement that this year’s survey found that climate change is of concern to 61 percent of Florida Republicans, which is 10 percentage points higher than Republicans nationwide.Dr. Laura Altfeld, associate professor of biology and ecology at the university, said in the press announcement that the survey confirms what common sense dictates: that young people believe their future is in trouble if climate change is not halted soon. “They’ve got a lot longer to deal with this,” Altfeld said.Climate change will play an unprecedented role in the Florida Legislature this year, as Republican leaders including House Speaker Chris Sprowls call for state funding to help municipalities armor themselves against sea-level rise and inland flooding. The Republican leaders do not frame flooding specifically as a result of climate change but they cite flooding forecasts produced by climate researchers.Other findings from the St. Leo survey on climate:More than 35 percent of respondents in Florida and in the national average said they “strongly support” the United States rejoining the international Paris Climate Agreement to reduce greenhouse gases that accumulate in the atmosphere and cause the climate to change. President Joe Biden has rejoined the treaty, after former President Donald Trump withdrew the nation from it. You have entered an incorrect email address!

The task in hand was to construct a new, one-person building adjacent to the X1 heritage-protected house that was built by Peter Neufert in 1959-62. The house needed to provide barrier-free accessibility and feature a self contained apartment, which could later be used by a carer. Save this picture!© Jens WillebrandThe design concept involves the redevelopment the existing surface of the old tennis court and the construction of a single-storey cubical house, from which two sections are cut out, lifted and turned onto their roofs. Situated on the even surface, this design features two high rooms that create volume, provide wide views into the park and let the sun shine into the house from several sides.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Gatermann + SchossigThe facility rooms are located to the north-west in order to ensure sound and energy protection on the street side of the building. This constitutes the closed formation of the north façade. The glazed south front, which mainly faces the garden and the heritage building, is formed by the two cut out building sections and their terraces. The homogenous metal façade produces an independent, unobtrusive contrast to the otherwise chromatic X1 house. The flush fitted windows add toward a smooth and calm overall composition.

Despite the reduction of the surface area to suit the use related dimensions, the rooms convey a sense of variable and fascinating spaciousness, which is supported by both the multifaceted lines of sight and the sun and light conditions that change along with the respective season and time of day.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Gatermann + SchossigThe material and technological concept correlates with the realisation of a holistically planned design. A well coordinated energy concept, with concrete core cooling, air, water and heat pump and controlled living space ventilation, ensures the provision of a low-energy house standard. Reduced details, featuring white walls against a copper red, cast floor, create the basis for an aesthetic room that facilitates a high standard of indoor environment quality.
