Italian government seeks to shrink online gaming market

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Italian government seeks to shrink online gaming market Italy’s Five Star Movement-Democratic Party coalition government has set out plans to reduce the number of online gaming licences available in the country from 85 to 50 by 2023.The government revealed plans in its first Budget Law decree, which, published by Italian gambling regulator Agenzia delle dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM), also includes various other measures for the wider Italian gambling market.For online gambling, licences will be priced at €2m (£1.7m/$2.2m) each and run for a period of nine years, effective from 2023. These licences will cost the same for operators renewing their existing permits or those entering the market for the first time.The application process for new licences will commence in 2021 or 2022, with operators able to pay for the permits in two installments. The first must be at least 50% of the price within 30 days of being awarded the licence, and the second within 30 days of signing the permit.Other changes to the Italian gambling market include a concession whereby the government will permit a maximum of 250,000 slot machines to operate across the country.The government will permit up to 58,000 video lottery terminals country-wide, while gaming points of sale will be capped at a maximum of 35,000. In addition, up to 2,800 gaming halls will be allowed to operate.Confirmation of the changes to the online gaming sector come after the ADM in February approved igaming licences for 70 operators, following a delayed tender process. The final number issued fell significantly below the 120 made available by the government.The Stars Group, William Hill, Paddy Power Betfair, GVC and bet365 were among the operators to secure licences. Permits cost €200,000 – significantly less than the price of the new licences – and are due to run until 31 December 2022.Operators active in Italy are subject to strict marketing rules under the so-called Dignity Decree, which has banned almost all gambling advertising since January 1, 2019.Changes to Italian tax law, announced late in 2018, means operators are now subject to higher gambling taxes. Also effective from January 1, tax on online casino and bingo was increased to 25% of gross gaming revenue (GGR), with fixed odds betting tax raised to 24% of GGR.Land-based sports betting operators are now taxed at 22% of GGR, while tax on virtual sports (22%), video lottery terminals (6.75% of turnover) and amusement with prizes (18.85% of turnover) were also increased.Taxes on VLTs and AWPs have since been increased twice, with the 2020 Budget hiking the tax on VLTs to 9% of turnover, and to 23% for AWPs.

Forget the surging Cineworld share price! I’d rather buy other UK shares in my ISA

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. News flow surrounding cinema chain Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) has been more cheery in recent sessions, driving demand for its shares to the stars. The UK share rocketed more than 20% on Monday, above 56p, on positive news surrounding its balance sheet. The Cineworld share price is now at its most expensive since early September.But would I buy this UK share for my Stocks and Shares ISA? Let me explain why Cineworld’s soaring, and what investors can expect in the short term and beyond.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 strengthened balance sheetAs I say, the main driver for Cineworld’s share price in recent hours has been a positive update on its liquidity position. The FTSE 250 stock plummeted at the back of last week as rumours that it’ll soon be seeking a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) swirled.However, the UK share put these reports to bed on Monday with news it’s secured $750m of extra liquidity it hopes will see it through to the end of 2021. It’s managed to do this by agreeing a new $450m debt facility, by extending its $111m revolving credit facility to 2024, and by bringing forward the end its US tax year. The latter move will create a tax refund of $200m, to be paid in early 2021.Still a VERY risky UK shareBut here’s the bad news for Cineworld and its investors…As it said, the additional $750m raised will help it survive until the end of next year. However, this is assuming its cinemas will reopen “no later than” May 2021.Recent positive news surrounding a Covid-19 vaccine has raised hopes that cinemas could reopen to the public before too long. But key questions over the efficacy and the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines are yet to be answered.Assuming that Cineworld will be able to start flogging tickets to eager moviegoers soon is no guarantee. And so doubts over this UK share’s ability to keep going could resurface before too long.The roaring popularity of streaming services also causes me to worry about Cineworld’s recovery. And not just because cinemagoers could continue to shun a trip to the movies in a post-pandemic landscape in favour of catching a flick at home.Filmmaking colossus Universal has been signing deals with North American cinema chains to shorten the theatrical window. The move scythes down the exclusivity period that movie theatres have to show films before they become available on streaming services. It could be the start of a trend that further undermines the long-term outlook for operators like Cineworld.Cineworld’s fundraising efforts this week have kept the wolf from the door. But the future of this UK share remains very much in the air. This is why I’d much rather buy other stocks for my ISA today. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Forget the surging Cineworld share price!

Apopka’s Biggest Stories of 2018: City Council votes 5-0 to approve…

first_img Editor’s Note: This is the eighth in a series of articles published by The Apopka Voice in 2018 that were the most noteworthy events of the year. The Apopka Voice will publish them starting today and running until Sunday, December 30th. On December 31st and January 1st, we will publish a poll and let the readers decide on which story is the most impactful of the year.Originally published on September 20th, 2018.The Apopka budget process came to an official close last night when the City Council voted unanimously to set the millage rate for the fiscal year 2018-2019 at 4.0376 (a quarter-mill increase) and adopt the annual budget for the fiscal year 2018-2019. The budget totals $114,579,804 for all funds, which is a decrease of $10,092,905 or 8.1% over the 2018 budget. The General Fund Budget of $47,820,702 decreased by $158,000 or .3% compared to last year’s budget.Among the highlights of this budget outlined in the proposal were:No reserves or borrowing used to balance the General Fund budget.$600,000 additional debt service for public safety equipment purchased in FY18.Red light camera program eliminated as of December 31, 2018.School Resource Officers funded all schools located in the city limits.Orange County Station 29 inter-local agreement.Splash Pad operations funded.Public safety vehicles (6 police vehicles-$194K and an ambulance-$182K), claw truck for grounds ($170K), a new chiller for City Hall ($100K), and improvements to the police gun range ($46K).Four net additional employees were included in the General Fund Budget – 2 communications technicians for Dispatch, 1 plan examiner and 1 permit clerk for Building Safety, and 1 part-time accounting clerk reclassified to full-time and 1 eliminated public information officer position.Water meter change-out program funded at $1.5M.Bear-Cart grant program.City Center Hilton Garden Inn, road improvements, restaurant, and retail establishments.Health Insurance Costs remained flat.Property and Casualty insurance increased 9%.According to Apopka City Administrator Edward Bass, an estimated $5-6 million was cut from original requests by department heads in this budget, which represents approximately 10% of what was in the first draft, and only four out of 50 requests for new hires were granted.

Actually the health insurance rates for the city did not remain flat. They might have for the city employees, which the city pays for their health insurance, but the health insurance rates went up a lot for the city employees who carry and pay for their wives/ and or children monthly. My husband, is retired from the city, and we went to inquire what the new rate would be prior to Oct. 1st, and it increased approx.$ 97.00 per month, going from $588.00 a month, just for mine only, and jumped Oct. 1st, to $ 685.00, is what we were informed. Usually, we look for a letter in Sept. of each year, in our mail, to let my husband know when the health insurance meetings are held for the city, as that is the time, employees can add additional insurance such as dental, etc. or drop dependents, or other changes. Well, we never got the letter this year. The lady at the city, who shall go unnamed here, told us they sent us an e-mail to us about the meeting, the email address, the one we had listed as a contact, but I went all though the email lists, and there was not an email from the city, and I looked way back to even June, July, Aug, Sept, and Oct to be for certain…..

The only way to keep my health insurance was to continue to keep his too, after he turns 65, so we were informed, at that cost! Remember, retired city employees don’t get any raises, ever, and they sure don’t get a yearly 6 percent raise, like the active city employees can get, that was voted in by the city council under duress, by the police and their supporters present at the council meeting during the budget votes and all, that is in the article above. Mama Miacenter_img Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter I don’t have health insurance now, and it is not because of the 97.00 per month increase either. My husband will be turning 65 very soon, and we inquired about keeping my health insurance after he will turn 65, until I turn 65, and we were told by the lady at the city office, that it would cost us $1,352 per month, for mine and my husband, and basically that his would be considered a Medicare supplement insurance, and that he would still have to pay for whatever his actual Medicare costs are that the government deducts from his SS. We aren’t rich. I told him to drop mine, although I pray for my health daily now, until I reach Medicare age, and I will be insured again, that is if Trump, or whoever, doesn’t end it all. The city discontinues paying for a city employee’s insurance at 65 years of age. Oh yeah, and I want to mention, the lady there in the office, asked did my husband want to go ahead and drop not only mine, but his health insurance too! His is paid for until he is 65 remember…..that really made me have an attitude! I didn’t give my husband a chance to answer her, I answered her, and said, “No, he does not want to drop his too, why should he, as he worked for a very long time at the city, and earned that benefit, to have his health insurance paid in full, until he is 65…NO!” Anyway, that seems an outrageous price for mine and his together, after he turns 65, plus the actual govt. Medicare costs he would have to pay too, plus his would be considered ” a supplemental insurance to Medicare”! That is too much for a retired person, or retired couple to pay! Got to whine sometimes, to get it all out of my system!

He doesn’t start spinning around in circles on the floor, and coughing uncontrollably when his life vest is on him, he acts like he can’t move when it is on him….lol Reggie, do you have any news about a possible sinkhole in Apopka? I was watching Fox 35 news on tv this morning, and they showed that a possible sinkhole had opened up in a residential neighborhood road, and that a FedEx truck drove off in it. They got the truck out, and covered the hole with some type of cover, about the size of my living room, so it appeared. I noticed the house across from the sinkhole, but didn’t recognize where it is in Apopka. They didn’t say where in Apopka on Fox 35. Do you know anything about this latest development? Thanks Reggie. Mama Mia December 30, 2018 at 9:02 am I have some supply of insulin and meds. I am not sure what I am going to do without health insurance. I still have prescriptions on hold, but my insulin costs were like between 1200 and 1500 dollars, each, I take two types, daily and weekly, according to the insurance follow up papers, what they paid minus my co-pay. The first of the year, I am really going to have to watch what I eat, carbs and chunk all sugar permanently. I used to be the New Years Day dieter, exercised my self to death, trying to get skinny to look good. Now I am worried about dying, actually. My sugar was so high one night, recently, when I tested it, it freaked me totally out! When I say high, I am serious, it was potentially deadly, it was so high. I cried, I went into panic mode, I drank 3 or 4 full glasses of water, took a higher than normal shot, and other diabetic meds, and even drank some vinegar water. I told my husband to go on to bed, I was staying up. I was actually afraid to lie down to go to sleep, afraid I would die in my sleep, due the extremely high sugar reading. It is better for now, not good, but who knows what the future holds. I have experienced the other side of the sugar scale, when it went down to 46! Way to low! I freaked out, was clammy, confused, and acting like a cry baby, couldn’t function normally, and didn’t know what was wrong with me, until I tested my finger, and it was my sugar! I don’t want to know what it is like at the other end of the too high sugar scale……. Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 last_img read more

Steep SlopeThe Tower House is perched on a small shelf along steep topography downhill from NW Cornell Road.  It touches the ground lightly and is built up rather than out.  The house is accessed by a thin steel pedestrian bridge that meets the house at its mid level, the dining room and hub of the house. The site is tucked away with just enough street frontage to access the site.   Save this picture!© Lara SwimmerThe uphill side of the site is nestled into a stand of douglas fir and pine trees characteristic of nearby Forest Park.  The downhill side drops off with undisturbed panoramic views of the city and mountains beyond.  Like a medieval tower house, this tower house has one primary room per floor with support spaces incorporated into the building perimeter. Save this picture!© Lara SwimmerThree RoomsThe Tower House is conceived as 3 main rooms (LIVING, DINING and BEDROOM) floating loosely in a tubular shaped building skin or “sleeve.”  These are the dominant rooms of the house.  They are tall, generous volumes of space finished with oil rubbed quarter sawn white oak.  They are simple, quiet rooms with a sense of luxury that comes from authenticity and craft.  The white oak palate is limited to these spaces creating a strong threshold between inside the room and out, heightening ones sense of being held and contained.Save this picture!© Lara SwimmerSleeveThe cladding of the house is seen as a sleeve, as if it were a stretchable garment pulled down tight over the structure.  It is made of black vertical corrugated steel with rounded corners eliminating the need for corner trim.  It is a continuous, uninterrupted surface punctuated only by the window openings and loggias.  Save this picture!© Lara SwimmerIn-BetweenBetween the 3 main rooms and the exterior sleeve of the house, the spaces take on a cellular structure, adjusting to fit functional requirements while keeping within the space provided.  Stairs, bathrooms and closets are the building blocks of this interstitial space.   Save this picture!Floor PlansThe stairway, with offset interior and exterior openings, acts as light loft refracting light within its 3 foot width and providing the main rooms with a soft, filtered ambient glow.  Closets and bathrooms have an intimate scale with a sense of being tucked away, hidden and private.

The private master suite opens into a fern garden in the eastern corner of the site, while large sliding glass doors suspend the living room within the landscape for family gatherings or larger events.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteA compact and vertical guest tower is sited at the western corner of the lot amongst tall evergreens, allowing for a more private guest experience, more compact floor plan, and the ability to effectively shut off (socially and energy-wise) the guest spaces zone by zone during typical daily use. Atop the 30-foot tower, a roof deck emerges through the trees, providing a unique vantage point of the structure below and the surrounding townscape.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThis spatial efficiency also provides increased energy efficiency. The high density of the guest spaces allows for stacked building systems that reduce resource consumption, while a hidden solar array over the horizontal spaces produces over 90% of the electrical demand of the house. Combined with the insulated glazing, radiant floor heat, passive cooling, and resilient natural materials, the house prioritizes sustainability in terms of both resources and living patterns.Save this picture!SectionThrough an integral relationship between use, form, and material, the Low/Rise House responds sensitively to site, nature, and neighborhood, creating a new type of suburban living – both urban and rural.Project gallerySee allShow lessRenovation and Extension At St Monica’s College / Branch Studio ArchitectsSelected ProjectsEmerging Architects Austin+Mergold Win Folly 2014Architecture News Share United States CopyHouses•Menlo Park, United States Low/Rise House / Spiegel Aihara WorkshopSave this projectSaveLow/Rise House / Spiegel Aihara Workshop Terra Ferma Landscapes “COPY” Low/Rise House / Spiegel Aihara Workshop Projects Architects: SAW // Spiegel Aihara Workshop Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard photographs:  Bruce DamontePhotographs:  Bruce Damonte Civil Engineer: Landscape Contractor: Mechanical Engineer: Hunner Associates Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte+ 25 Share Monterey Energy Group Area:  4500 ft² Area:  4500 ft² Photographs ArchDaily Landscape Design: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Geotechnical Engineer: General Contractor: Murray Engineers “COPY” Houses WEC and Associates Inc.last_img read more

The project sits on two small Greenfield sites, each roughly 600m2, one at the junction of ‘rue Achard’ and ‘rue de la Delbos’ (building A), and the other behind running the length of the ‘cité Tirepois’, (building B). The whole articulate around this preserved field path. In the neighbourhood, it is the last of its kind – at the very least, the only one which kept this specific nature.Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauHABITATThe 18 apartments follow a common principle: the living spaces are placed in the middle, occupying the width of the buildings and are largely open to the exterior by an intermediate floor to ceiling sliding window frame (no visible lintels), running the length of each space (no columns or walls)and are enclosed by the kitchen, storage spaces and the bedrooms and bathrooms. The typical external spaces of the balconies and loggias are integrated into the buildings and raise the net floor areas (71-81 m2 for a 2 bed apartment). The visual limits of this central space, now with a new different relationship with the exterior transform into balconies.Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauLIVING SPACEEach central space and the kitchen create a living space representing two thirds of the net floor living area with the bedrooms and bathrooms pushed to a comfortable limit. This space can now house another function, become an office space, a spare bedroom, retreat…and rests always a part of the lounge and dining room. Solar protection is provided by external adjustable venetian blinds allowing a variation of light intensity for each room.Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauCOMPACTNESSThe demanding, constrained sites with their poor quality substrate, called for the required parking to be left on ground floor level. The buildings construction sits on concrete pilotis, which touch ground to form one apartment onto the rue Achard, the communal staircases and the entrances. The building B horizontal in form is setback from the neighbouring wall by the required 4 metres. Building A adopts the same form yet turns on itself taking the shape of a ring. The two compact buildings are externally insulated and covered on all sides by a metal rainscreen cladding system.Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauProject gallerySee allShow lessCenter for Free-Electron Laser Science CFEL / Hammeskrause ArchitectsSelected ProjectsModa Sahnesi / Halukar ArchitectureSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rue Achard, 33300 Bordeaux, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Carrying out the project of a house for a group of Scouts required some previous research of the ways of living, educating, playing and organization these kind of associations have. From the beginning, the project was focused on the search of an inclusive space that would allow both group work and respect for the environment and their surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of BAAGThe house is organized around a central area that includes yards and voids at double height and conforms the main inner space, a kind of hub that provides a common view and a sort of expansion to all the rooms… The scouts -organized by age groups- work on a series of slabs, in the shape of alternating trays that communicate by means of door-like panels or sliding wooden partitions, which encourage interaction and communication between the different parts of the house. The ground floor is connected with the garden (back yard) by folding door/windows that allows a fluid connection. Every sector of the house has a unique identity with changing qualities that generate a playful, dynamic atmosphere and encourage unlimited articulation and social participation.Save this picture!© Federico KulekdjianEvery room has large outward windows and inward wooden partition openings, with convenient cross ventilation in the summer and radiators below the windows that produce heating during the winter. Spaces have direct sunlight and overlook the street or the garden. The large skylight over the central space provides bright illumination inside the house.Save this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!SectionA green screen covers the front, back and roof of the building. It consists of climbing plant St John’s worts, pink bignonias, hardy fuchsias and lucerne, among other plants, which are looked after by the children Scouts and grow from planters located on every floor, from the garden and the sidewalk. This screen operates both as thermal insulation and sunscreen, generating shades and brightness that provide a suitable setting for the Scouts’ activities.Save this picture!Courtesy of BAAGThe metal mesh -made of welded iron bars- supports the plants and provides general protection. Placed on the wooden frames, it sometimes folds and turns into a pergola for the terrace or filters the sunlight from the skylight. It also acts as a sunscreen, brise soleil or thermal portiere that suggests a natural setting and recreates the spirit of the tree house.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) have joined forces to manage a new two-year programme of research on charitable giving. The two organisations will produce an annually updated picture of voluntary support for good causes based on donor surveys. The combined programme is informed by an independent Advisory Group made up of experts in the field of charitable giving.The two bodies have collaborated before on giving research, feeding into each other’s publications such as NCVO’s “UK Voluntary Sector Almanac” and CAF’s “A Lot Of Give”. The research project is a partnership rather than a merger, since each organisation will continue to operate in its own independent role. Advertisement Both organisations already use the same research agency, NOP, to conduct their surveys of individual charitable giving.Karl Wilding, Head of Research at NCVO, said: “This new partnership between CAF and NCVO will ensure that our distinct competencies will be applied to ensure that individual giving surveys are put to the most effective use possible.” Cathy Pharoah, Director of Research at CAF said: “By working together even more closely over the next two years, we will be able to provide a strong platform for developing sector research on individual giving. And only when we have a greater understanding of this area, can we really begin to explore its full potential.”The role of the advisory group will be to ensure that stakeholders from right across the voluntary sector are consulted at an early stage in all giving research development. The group will include individuals from the CAF and NCVO research teams, academics who specialise in the voluntary sector, fundraising experts and others.The first joint report is expected to be published in summer 2003.last_img read more
