Flutter and TSG secure CMA approval for mega-merger

first_img Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Finance Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Email Address The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has given its approval to the proposed mega-merger between Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair, and Sky Bet operator The Stars Group. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has given its approval to the proposed mega-merger between Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair, and Sky Bet operator The Stars Group.The CMA granted “unconditional phase one clearance” to the proposal, which would see Flutter acquire all of the shares in TSG and join together to create a combined business with annual revenue of £3.8bn (€4.3bn/$4.7bn).The proposed transaction is still subject to approval by Flutter shareholders at its extraordinary general meeting on 21 April, as well as TSG shareholders at a vote on 24 April.The merger is also conditional on approval from a number of other regulatory bodies, some of whom have warned that this process could be delayed due to the global outbreak of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).Among the organisations yet to give clearance to the proposed merger are the UK Financial Conduct Authority, London Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin.“This morning’s announcement from the CMA marks a further important milestone in the process towards completion of our proposed combination with The Stars Group,” Flutter chief executive Peter Jackson said.“We continue to work with the remaining international regulatory authorities to obtain the last of the outstanding approvals. Separately, last week we published the necessary documentation ahead of the shareholder votes in April and we continue to make good progress in our post-completion planning.”Flutter and TSG last week also announced that they had come to an agreement as to who will serve as directors at Flutter. Divyesh Gadhia, currently the executive chairman of TSG, will become deputy chair of the group, following completion of the merger.TSG chief executive Rafi Ashkenazi will act as a consultant to Flutter and join the board in a non-executive capacity rather than taking up an operational role, while Richard Flint, Alfred Hurley Jr, David Lazzarato and Mary Turner will also become directors.Subject to completion, Jan Bolz and Emer Timmons will step down as non-executive directors of Flutter, while Ian Dyson will step down from the audit committee and will relinquish his roles as senior independent director and chair of the nomination committee. Andrew Higginson will instead take up these positions.

Australia: Anglicans offer prayer-space for arson-hit Muslims

first_imgAustralia: Anglicans offer prayer-space for arson-hit Muslims Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR [Anglican Communion News Service] The bishop of Melbourne has stepped in to offer prayer space to Muslims from Geelong, Victoria, whose mosque was destroyed in a suspected arson attack in the early hours of the morning May 18. The blaze, in a former church building, is the fifth suspicious fire to hit places of worship in Geelong in recent months.The first to be hit was the 140-year-old St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Bannockburn, Geelong, which was destroyed in a fire on Oct. 14 last year. Two churches in the Norlane district of Geelong – St. Peter’s Chains Reformed Episcopal Church of Australia and Norlane Baptist Church – were destroyed on Dec. 5. The last church to be hit was the Geelong Presbyterian Church, which was destroyed on April 15.Police in Victoria say that they cannot link today’s fire with the four church arsons; but say that there are obvious similarities. They also don’t know if Muslims were the target of today’s attack or whether the arsonists mistook the mosque for a church – Geelong Mosque met in a former Victorian-era bluestone Anglican church.Following the fire, Bishop of Melbourne Philip Huggins spoke to Imam Mohammad Ramzan and offered the use of the church hall at All Saints’ Church, Newtown, for Friday prayers.“We want to help in any way we can,” Huggins said. “We appreciate how shocking and distressing the destruction of a place of prayer and community strengthening is. With this common ground between us clearly we would want to reach out and help our Muslim friends continue their devotional life.”Sheikh Muhammad Saleem from the Victoria Board of Imams said that the support from the wider community had been overwhelming.“Since this morning we have received many telephone calls from the community leaders in and around Melbourne and Geelong expressing their … overwhelming support,” he told ABC News. “As I was walking to see the mosque, I was quite overwhelmed by the support expressed by the neighboring community.“I’m very pleased to hear the men and women who live in the neighborhood come forward and ask me personally what we can do, and my answer to them was, ‘Let’s stand together and rebuild it.’” Anglican Communion, Rector Collierville, TN TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Bath, NC Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Martinsville, VA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Press Release Service Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Washington, DC The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Featured Jobs & Calls Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Associate Rector Columbus, GA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest center_img Tags Rector Smithfield, NC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 By Gavin DrakePosted May 18, 2016 Ecumenical & Interreligious Rector Hopkinsville, KY Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Albany, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Knoxville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Bishops United Against Gun Violence lament Ash Wednesday shooting in…

first_img Back to Press Releases Rector Collierville, TN Rector Tampa, FL Associate Rector Columbus, GA Tags Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Bishops United Against Gun Violence, a group of more than 100 Episcopal bishops working to curtail the epidemic of gun violence in the United States, released the following statement on the shootings on Wednesday in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:Two years ago on Ash Wednesday, unthinkable news from Parkland, Florida, punctuated our Lenten prayers and forced us once again to repent of our nation’s sinful refusal to end the epidemic of gun violence. Yesterday, on another Ash Wednesday, that epidemic claimed six lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Again this year, our Lenten journey must begin with a cry of lamentation and repentance for the evil that enslaves our nation.We pray for the five Molson Coors workers who were murdered yesterday by a co-worker, for their families, and for the gunman himself, who took his own life. We pray too for the people of the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee and for Bishop Steven Miller, one of our co-conveners and a vocal advocate for state and federal gun safety legislation. He helped found our network in the wake of another mass shooting in his state—this one in 2012 at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.We pray not as a substitute for action but in preparation for it. In April, many members of our network will again travel to Washington D.C. to meet with elected officials and urge passage of commonsense gun legislation that has been stalled by partisan discord that places the fortunes of politicians above the fates of their constituents.During these visits, we will share with our legislators the stories of the movement against gun violence that has spread across the Episcopal Church. We will tell them about our advocacy for policies, laws and programs that will protect our children, safeguard those who suffer the pain of mental illness and despair, and dismantle the unholy trinity of poverty, gun violence and racism. We will describe the liturgies and litanies that we offer to comfort those who mourn. And we will demand that they vote in the interests of all Americans, including law-abiding gun owners, to pass lifesaving, common sense gun policies that will help bring an end to our persistent pleas.We invite all Episcopalians to join us in this movement. Visit our website and Facebook page to learn more about how to advocate for commonsense policies that can reduce gun violence, hold gun manufacturers and the banks that finance them accountable, and witness to the God of life who offers hope even as we contemplate, yet again, the face of death.

Episcopal Church-connected ministries strive for safety, normalcy in the midst…

first_img Brother Paul Fesefeldt preaches at a recent Sunday service for the Common Cathedral on the steps of St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral in Boston, Massachusetts. Amanda Grant-Rose, Common Cathedral’s executive director, officiated. Photo: Ecclesia Ministries – Common Cathedral[Episcopal News Service] The Boston homeless congregation known as Common Cathedral is constantly changing the way it helps members cope with the increasing challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.“The risk is ever-changing,” Amanda Grant-Rose, Common Cathedral’s executive director, told Episcopal News Service last week. Still, the ministry continues to offer people living on the streets some respite from the mounting hardships they now face.Pastoral care in the time of COVID-19 is a challenge everywhere, but that is especially true for people living on the streets who have no place to shelter and far less access to preventive care, said both Grant-Rose and the Rev. Mary Jane Eaton, a member of the Common Cathedral staff. Eaton said she is looking ahead to a far different Holy Week that might coincide with what many experts say could be a surge of infections and deaths.An ecumenical ministry, Common Cathedral has roots in St. Paul’s Cathedral, across the street from Boston Common, and in the ministry of the Rev. Deborah Little. Its ties to The Episcopal Church remain strong, especially with Emmanuel Church, an Episcopal congregation in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, which provides Common Cathedral’s members a place to be three days a week. The church is still allowing 20 to 25 people at a time to come into its parish hall to rest, use a bathroom and get some donated sandwiches and other food to go. The people there are practicing the necessary physical distancing, said Grant-Rose.“We are going back to ‘What do we have to offer each other?’” Eaton told ENS. “It is not a hot cooked meal, necessarily; it is a basic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That is the core of who we are. We are still showing up.”Eaton said the cathedral is moving back to its basics. Little began her ministry by meeting homeless people in Boston and offering them sandwiches, a friendly face and referrals to social services.Practicing physical distancing, the members of Common Cathedral gather on Boston Common for worship led by the Rev. Mary Jane Eaton, a member of the cathedral staff. Photo: Ecclesia Ministries – Common CathedralThroughout the country, Episcopal churches are trying to help people on the streets. Staff members of Bridges Outreach Inc., which is supported by many community partners including Calvary Episcopal Church in Summit, New Jersey, are working in Summit and Newark, New Jersey, as well as in New York, to help the homeless find safe places to be and, if they have symptoms, a place to quarantine.In San Francisco, Episcopal Community Services said March 27 that the outbreak of the coronavirus is occurring during what it called the ongoing “humanitarian crisis of homelessness” in the city. The organization is helping people shelter in place at four locations, which are equipped with masks, gloves, sanitizer and other supplies for guests and staff. Janitorial and cleaning services have been expanded to minimize the spread of the virus.Episcopal Community Services also has added a lunch meal at one shelter so guests do not have to leave to get food. Serving times are staggered to allow more space between people. Staff also worked with the city to extend the operation of the Interfaith Winter Shelter at its Canon Kip Senior Center until April 30.

A different local church delivers food to that service each week. “It has spread out significantly just because of the space required, but it hasn’t changed that much,” Grant-Rose said of the gathering.Eaton, a Disciples of Christ minister who leads the Sunday service, noted that social distancing is different from physical distancing.“Six feet away you can still have eye contact. Six feet away you can still call someone by their name,” she told ENS last week. “We are not supposed to hold hands to pray, but we can still bow our heads and be in prayer and hear each other and hear the depths of our prayers, even 6 feet away.” Rector Albany, NY Rector Tampa, FL Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Youth Minister Lorton, VA Health & Healthcare Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Bath, NC Rector Collierville, TN Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 COVID-19, Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Tags Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Submit a Job Listing Press Release Service New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR These days, the Sunday worship and all weekday Common Cathedral gatherings begin with a recitation of Jesus’ promise in Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”Finding ways for congregation members to support each other is a challenge now, Eaton said. They used to cook meals together, teach each other in the weekly art class and simply connect with each other. Those things have now all been restricted, she said.“That’s the same for all churches. It’s just important for my people that they get seen from that perspective as well,” she said. “They’re suffering in the way that housed congregations are. It’s the same loss of connection.”That also means loss of a semblance of normalcy and social interaction with Common Cathedral’s volunteers, most of whom do have a place to live, Eaton said.Common Cathedral’s chronically homeless members know how to endure in challenging times, she said. “They have keenly developed that skill.” They know where to go to get food, to get in from the cold, to use the bathroom, to find a way to charge their cellphones. And though the congregation’s members are skilled in endurance, feelings of abandonment can be particularly intense in a time of crisis.Common Cathedral members often struggle with feeling abandoned by family, friends and society at large, Eaton said. “That’s a real struggle right now. They feel abandoned, so the more we have people showing up to communicate that they are seen, the better.” Featured Events Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit a Press Release Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit an Event Listing Rector Martinsville, VA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Church-connected ministries strive for safety, normalcy in the midst of COVID-19 TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Featured Jobs & Calls Director of Music Morristown, NJ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

When the clients for the Bouldin House, a young couple in the music industry, approached Alter Studio they didn’t have an image in mind, or a site, but knew that they wanted a very special home that would embrace the many different things that they liked. The design presents an aesthetic that engages serendipity in many guises, where board-formed concrete, rough recycled wood flooring, and vertical cedar siding is posed against abstract detailing allowing sunlight and shadow from every direction.

PivotThe house takes advantage of Austin’s 25’ front yard setback requirement by capturing a private walled courtyard on the busy street to the south, and instead turns to face the side street to the east. Situated between this courtyard and a protected live oak tree, the Bouldin House is a compact, 2-story building that expands both north and south into the lot. Carefully orchestrated windows, skylights and a glass floor further open the house to the sky and sun, and provide a continued sense of openness to this 2300 sq ft home. Rooms are designed to provide both intimacy and expansiveness. A cozy 9’ x 9’ media room sits at the center of the house downstairs, while the upstairs office/studio stretches the full 43’ length of the house and is open on both ends to continue the sense of breadth and engage views of downtown. Butt-glazed corners and windows that rise beyond interior ceilings add a sense of surprise and ambiguity to the whole.Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy PhotographyOriented for optimal cross ventilation, the Bouldin House also is outfitted for a rainwater collection system, solar photovoltaic array, solar pool heating tubes, reflective TPO roofing, cellular foam insulation, tankless water heaters, etc. Their desire for a sustainable lifestyle is also reflecting in their decision to live centrally and work from home, all within a modest sized footprint.Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessButler House / Andrew Maynard ArchitectsArticlesFreshLatino at Storefront for Art and ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy Photography+ 9 Share Photographs 2009 Bouldin Residence / Alter Studio ArchDailylast_img read more

‘Charity’ publishing companies closed in the public interest

The companies misled those whom them sold advertising to in terms of the amount being donated to charity.Lancashire-based Hamilton Forbes Limited and Price Chamberlain Limited were set up to continue the business of charity publisher Barrington House Publishing Corporation Limited, which itself was wound up in October 2005.Investigators found that both Hamilton Forbes and Price Chamberlain sold advertising space in wall-planners to small businesses who were contacted by cold-calling, by many of the same staff, from the same premises, using the same methods and for the same charities asBarrington House. Advertisement Initially the companies failed to comply with Section 60 of the Charities Act 1992 and inform advertisers of the proportion of their fees which would be given to charity. Even though they latterly sent out statements, these were inaccurate, according to investigators.Advertisers were told that 15p in every pound would be given by Hamilton Forbes Limited to The Children’s Research Fund and 10p in every pound to the International League for Protection of Horses. In fact, less than 5p in every pound went to these charities.Advertisers with Price Chamberlain Limited were told 25p in every pound would go to the charity Kids in Need and Distress (KIND) but in reality it was 8p.The Insolvency Service found that advertisers were also misled as to the planned distribution of the wall-planners with telesales staff stating figures ranging from 100’s to 100,000 or “all hospitals”. In reality investigators found that the maximum distribution for any one wall planner was just 87 with the average closer to 67.The accounting records of both companies were “at best inaccurate and at worst misleading”, according to the Insolvency Service. Both companies appeared to be insolvent owing VAT and PAYE of over £250,000.The Official Receiver was appointed as provisional liquidator of each company on 29 January 2007 and the winding up orders were made on 13 March 2007.

Bolton’s false claim of ‘new’ U.S. policy for Africa

first_imgThis article was first published in Avante, the weekly newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party, on Dec. 27. Its author was a former member of the Secretariat of the PAIGC, the party leading the struggle for the liberation of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde. Translation by WW Managing Editor John Catalinotto.The United States has announced a “new” policy for Africa. It was up to National Security Adviser John Bolton — known for his reactionary and aggressive positions — to reveal the basics of Washington’s strategy for the African continent. This policy was approved by President Donald Trump on Dec. 12.U.S. military bases and other operations facilities from 2002-2015Speaking at the right-wing Heritage Foundation on Dec. 13, Bolton defined three priorities.  The first was to strengthen trade ties with African countries through agreements that benefit both parties.  He said, “We ask only for reciprocity, never for subservience.” The second was to contain the “proliferation of radical Islamic terrorism” — namely, “ISIS, Al-Qaida and other terrorists,” which “targeted United States citizens and interests.”  The third priority was to ensure that U.S. “aid” is efficient and effective, in line with U.S. interests — while “unproductive aid” should be ended, including United Nations peace missions. He stated, “Countries that repeatedly vote against the United States and international forums that would take action against U.S. interests should not receive generous American foreign aid.”Bolton stressed that the main aim of U.S. strategy is to oppose and, if possible, to prevent China’s and Russia’s good and cooperative relations with African countries. He said that these “great power [U.S.] competitors are rapidly extending their financial and political influence across Africa” and “are deliberately and aggressively targeting their investments in the region to gain a competitive advantage over the United States.” (CSPAN, Dec. 13)In essence, there is no change of strategy. But Bolton’s speech raises concerns about his threat to reconfigure or end funding for U.N. missions in Africa.  These missions contribute to the search for peaceful resolutions of conflicts and wars in Sudan, South Sudan, Mali, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Western Sahara and Somalia.In fact, many of these conflicts and wars have been caused by interference from Washington and its allies. Under the pretext of the fight against terrorism, the Pentagon maintains several military bases in Africa, from Djibouti to Niger, under the United States Africa Command (Africom).  Africom has about 7,200 staff members in “advisory missions” in many African countries.Bolton has promised that Washington will reduce the number of troops stationed in Africa by 10 percent and has urged the countries on the continent to assume their own defense. The White House adviser also raised the possible transfer to African soil of Africom, which has had its headquarters in Germany since its inception in 2007.Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the African Union Commission, responded to the announcement of the U.S.’s “new African policy” while speaking at the Africa-Europe Forum in Vienna on Dec. 18. He reminded the group that “investors have their interests, we have ours, we know better than anyone else with whom we should trade and cooperate.”Whether under old or new guises, within the framework of its strategy of world domination, U.S. policy toward Africa does not change.  It will continue to be one of meddling, military intervention and exploitation of the continent’s wealth. However, this policy faces increasing resistance and opposition from the African peoples, who continue to fight for their complete emancipation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
