AGA reiterates opposition to federal sports betting framework

We believe this can best be achieved through law enforcement oversight and robust state regulation.“Bringing sports betting activity into a transparent legal market, under state and tribal regulatory oversight, empowers law enforcement to tackle illegal gambling, provides essential consumer protection and better ensures bet and game integrity.“It will also create new American jobs and generate additional local, state and federal tax revenue.”The AGA also highlighted how several parties that had previously been against the expansion of legal sports betting in the US were now taking advantage of the new system.Last month, the NBA basketball league entered into a landmark partnership with MGM Resorts International, while NFL American football franchise the Dallas Cowboys last week set a league first by linking up with WinStar World Casino.In addition, a Nielsen Sports report commissioned by the AGA found that the NFL could boost its annual revenue by $2.3bn (£1.76bn/€1.97bn) per year as a result of legal, regulated sports betting in the US.“Since the court’s decision, companies in Delaware, Mississippi, New Jersey and West Virginia are now operating legal, regulated sportsbooks,” Slane said. “More than 20 other states, including New York, are likely to consider legalised sports betting when their legislatures convene in 2019.“AGA strongly believes no additional federal engagement is needed at this time based on the significant, effective regulatory oversight already in place. Across the country, more than 4,000 dedicated public servants effectively regulate the commercial and tribal casino industry, including sports wagering.“Replacing an already proven regulatory regime with a non-existent and untested federal oversight apparatus would be out of step with seven in 10 Americans who think this decision should be left to each state and tribe.” AGA reiterates opposition to federal sports betting framework 14th September 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Like South Africa’s borders are closed for the time being and likes of Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir and AB de Villiers are important for their respective franchises.IPL GC Agenda 8 :  Anti Corruption Unit activities for IPL 2020Currently, BCCI’s ACU unit has eight full-time officers but even then, they would require more workforce with each team needing one integrity officer and also the hotels where the teams are staying need to be monitored as there would be other guests too.“There is a possibility that BCCI can hire from ICC’s ACU team and pay a fee for their services,” the oficial further stated.IPL GC Agenda 9 : BCCI’s own medical unit for IPL 2020There will be discussion on whether BCCI will have their own medical unit traveling or prepare of team of medical practitioners based out of the United Arab Emirates.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address The ASOS (LSE: ASC) share price endured a stomach-churning crash in the spring when Covid-19 hit the markets.The self-described online retailer for fashion-loving 20-somethings around the world saw its stock plunge by just over 70% from 11 February until mid-April. And that counts as one of the furthest drops of all during the stock market crash.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…The buoyant ASOS share priceMaybe that’s unsurprising when you consider the company has enjoyed a rich valuation for many years. Indeed, investors’ expectations of outperformance have been high regarding ASOS. So, when the world changed, many probably switched to risk-off mode and dumped everything, especially their expensive stocks. Indeed, in the early days of the pandemic, we all had little idea of how things would develop.But, in early April, it began to emerge that shoppers were switching from high street shopping to online channels during the lockdowns. And ASOS started shooting back up. At today’s 3,510p, the share is now within a whisker of the level it was in February, before the plunge.However, to reverse the 70% plunge, ASOS needed to climb by about 230%. That sounds a lot, but it’s only restoring the stock back to where it started. And that move seems rational to me, because earnings have been rising.Indeed, the extra revenue being generated by shoppers migrating online is dropping to the bottom line for ASOS. The firm has also been cutting costs. And City analysts have pencilled in an impressive three-figure percentage hike in earnings for the next trading year to August 2021. And rising earnings could be the thing that puts a rocket under the share price.Strong year-on-year profit growthIn a trading update released on 15 July, chief executive Nick Beighton said ASOS is “on track to deliver strong year-on-year profit growth and to return to positive free cash flow for the full year.” However, he also said the directors are cautious about the ongoing effects of Covid-19 on the business.But, so far, the pandemic is boosting earnings. And earnings tend to be a big driver of share prices. Because of this, I reckon there’s potential for sentiment to drive the stock back up to its previous highs of 2018 above 7,000p.One possible scenario is that consumers will continue to enjoy shopping with ASOS, even when coronavirus is a distant memory. I’ve heard plenty of arguments that the pandemic is hastening the switch from the high street to online channels. It’s possible that higher profits could endure for ASOS, marking a step up in the growth story.However, analysts at Morgan Stanley urged caution last week. Their survey data suggests consumers will likely go back to in-store shopping when social distancing is relaxed. And ASOS could see a decline in revenue down the road if a vaccine becomes available.Right now, that’s speculation. Meanwhile, the company’s forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to August 2021 sits just above 50. The stakes are high!

These 2 FTSE 100 stocks have bags of recovery potential. Here’s what I’d do now

first_imgThese 2 FTSE 100 stocks have bags of recovery potential. Here’s what I’d do now These are tough times for retailers with Arcadia Group and Debenhams going into administration, but some FTSE 100 stocks shares in the sector are better placed to thrive. In fact, they may even benefit, as competition on the high street shrinks.I’m thinking of Primark owner Associated British Foods (LSE: ABF), and clothing chain Next (LSE: NXT). Both have shown their resilience in the pandemic, and this should stand them in good stead for the recovery. I’m considering adding these FTSE 100 stocks to my portfolio but are they too expensive right now?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…The Associated British Foods share price tanked in March, falling 40% as Primark shut its doors in the lockdown. Its share price recovery has been slow, though. The most recent lockdown cost it £430m in lost sales, which is blow. The good news is that demand has since been “very strong” at stores that have reopened. It seems to have become a post-lockdown tradition to besiege Primark at the first change you get.I like these retail sector survivorsABF isn’t just about Primark and it also reported healthy trading in grocery, sugar, ingredients, and agriculture. Despite this, it still reckons profits will be higher than last year. With competitors like Topshop on the rack, this FTSE 100 stock has shown it has staying power. That’s particularly impressive given that it doesn’t sell online. It was also able to offset falling revenues in the lockdown, with a 25% drop in operating profits. Finding store space should not be a problem in future, either.Sadly, this is another of those FTSE 100 stocks that does not offer a dividend right now, which was suspended earlier this year. What worries me more is that it looks expensive, trading at 29.1 times earnings. City analysts forecast that ABF’s earnings will grow 37% in the year to September 2021, so that valuation may be justified. On balance, I might check out these stocks instead.Next has rebounded strongly from the March crash, with the share price jumping an impressive 84% from its lows. Once again, this underlines the benefits of buying shares in a market meltdown, as you can make big money when they rebound.Next year should be better for these FTSE 100 stocksThe big attraction of Next is that it combines a thriving e-commerce operation with a legacy bricks and mortar business. This year has brought plenty of challenges, including closed stores, a plunge in formal wear sales, and capacity issues in its online warehouses. However, a 23.1% rise in Q3 online sales helped offset damage elsewhere.In October, management forecast healthy full-year profit before tax of £365m, but warned that a two-week lockdown would reduce retail full price sales by around £57m. We will have to wait until its Q4 trading statement in early January to see the true damage, but I think Next is resilient. Investors will be hoping that shoppers remain free to spend in the run-up to Christmas.My worry is that falling revenues have driven up the forward valuation to 30 times earnings. Again, there is no dividend. Next remains a top FTSE 100 retail stock and tempting buy, though.

Jonathan Davies great solo effort against the Dragons

first_imgWednesday Sep 29, 2010 Jonathan Davies great solo effort against the Dragons The Scarlets sit near the top of the table in the Magners League after their 27-14 win over the Dragons in Newport on Friday. Scarlets scored three first half tries, with Jonathan Davies set up one and then scoring this solo effort shortly afterwards.Davies, sometimes referred to as Jon to avoid confusion with his commentating namesake, has shown this season that he isnt far away from making a very competent step up to being a regular international player.Still just 22, Davies has all the attributes and possesses incredible acceleration as well as brute strength. He is deceptively quick and is solid on defence. Hes now scored six tries in three games, and is many peoples teamsheets as the starting center for Wales while Jamie Roberts is sidelined.On Friday night he earned another Man of the Match award after he put in a great showing, setting up a nice try for young George North, then scoring this impressive individual try.He did pick up a slight ankle niggle, but looks to be okay for this upcoming weekends derby clash with local rivals Ospreys at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday night.

The “Green Concept Home” is a two-story single-family residence located in Bellevue, Washington. This 2,840 sqf house has a contemporary design and is owned, designed and built by husband and wife team David Huang and Millie Leung. Designed by Modus V Studio Architects, the house broke ground in September 2009 and was completed the following year in September 2010.Save this picture!sectionThe project aims to build an environmentally friendly and sustainable home that moves our society towards more sustainable living. The house implemented many concepts of green designs – including structural insulated panels (SIPs), rainwater harvesting system, solar hot water heater, tankless hot water heater, heat recovery ventilator, radiant floor heating, solar orientation, Energy Star appliances, Energy Star metal roof, Energy Star windows, low-flow water fixtures, no VOCs paints, renewable and environmentally friendly materials and drought-tolerant landscaping. Our goal is to minimize energy and water usage, maximize the comfort for the residents and to create a holistic and sustainable way of life.

The waste was sent to a local recycling facility with a 95%+ diversion rate.

The house is separated into Eastern and Western wings of the “H”. The Western wing consists of the “public” spaces such as living room, kitchen, dining room, and office. This is a very open and lofty space, with high ceiling (20 ft) above the living room and the office overlooking the living room. There are no walls built between the different rooms, so it becomes a great space that the day activities are carried out. The space is filled with lights from Southern and Northern exposure, while shielded from Western suns. The Eastern wing of the house consists of the “private” spaces such as all the bedrooms, guest room, mechanical room and garage. Contrary to the other wing, the Eastern wing is very enclosed, protected, and intimate, becoming the space where the family will rest at night. The design strategy of clearly separating the day-activity spaces with night-resting spaces allow for an easy separation of heating zones. It also provides an acoustic barrier between the noisier part of the house – the living room/kitchen – and the bedrooms.

Save this picture!sectionAnother goal of this project is about sharing information and lessons we have learned. Throughout our research, design, preparation and construction, we have documented information collected and lessons learned on our project website www.greenconcepthome.com. We have also arranged free educational public tours during construction. By doing so, we hope to increase public awareness on green building. Although many fine green demonstration houses have already been built throughout the country, there needs to be many, many more of them, until there are enough so that virtually everyone has a chance to experience them. We hope that through media outreach and educational presentations, we can do our part to increase public awareness to encourage more green buildings in the future and a greener environment for generations to come.Save this picture!© Millie LeungProject gallerySee allShow lessHenry Gifford Files Opposition to USGBC’s Motion to Dismiss Amended ComplaintArticlesArt and Archeological Museum / CVDB ArquitectosArticles Share Year:  “COPY” Houses “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/135212/green-concept-home-modus-v-studio-architects Clipboard United States CopyAbout this officeModus V Studio ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityHousesBellevueUnited StatesPublished on May 16, 2011Cite: “Green Concept Home / Modus V Studio Architects” 16 May 2011.
