The pressure is telling on the region’s leaders, with Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker lashing out at German chancellor Angela Merkel for what he called her “un-European manner”.Regarding Merkel’s comments that issuing single, region-wide Eurozone bonds (or “E-bonds”) would not be legal under current treaties, he retorted: “The proposal is being rejected before it has been studied. Germany’s thinking is a bit simple on that.”A German official responded coolly: “It certainly doesn’t help anyone when the individual players call each other ‘un-European’.”Merkel has provoked growing anger among her Eurozone allies by rejecting E-bond proposals and repeatedly suggesting that sovereign bondholders should be on the hook for bailout costs.Her rhetoric, designed to play to populist discontent at home about the cost of bailing out indebted states, has raised concerns among officials that conflicting interests at the Eurozone’s core are fraying its political union. whatsapp Share Wednesday 8 December 2010 8:52 pm Tags: NULL Tensions flare between euro leaders over bonds Show Comments ▼last_img read more

SunCity narrows H1 losses despite revenue decline

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 1st September 2020 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter SunCity narrows H1 losses despite revenue decline Casino & games Casino junket and integrated resorts operator SunCity Group has reported a 69.5% year-on-year decline in revenue for the first half of 2020, though fair value gains related to its convertible bonds significantly reduced the business’ net loss for the period.Revenue for the six months to 30 June declined to RMB93.7m (£10.2m/€11.5m/$13.8m), of which contracts with customers accounted for RMB77.4m, and revenue from leasing properties the remaining RMB16.3m.The vast majority of SunCity’s first half revenue came from Macau, which accounted for RMB62.5m of the total, down 74.4%. A further RMB10.9m was generated in Vietnam, where the business is providing management services for the new Hoiana integrated resort; RMB1.2m from Cambodia, and RMB2.8m from property leasing in China.This decline in revenue resulted in cost of sales falling 74.2% to RMB65.8m, leaving a gross profit of RMB28.0m, down 45.8%.However, SunCity’s pre-tax losses were significantly reduced, falling from RMB1.26bn to RMB204.9m. While the business recorded a RMB333.2m loss due to fair value changes in investment properties, as well as higher losses from joint ventures and rising administrative costs, this was mitigated by gains on the fair value of derivative financial instruments.This related to the company’s convertible bonds, which increased in value by RMB588.2m, having seen their value written down by RMB1.07bn in H1 2019. After an RMB81.2m income tax credit, SunCity’s net loss for the first half came to RMB123.2m, compared to a RMB1.25bn loss in H1 2019.This surpassed the projected RMB108m net loss the company said it was anticipating last month.“It was undoubtedly a tough first half of the year as [the] Covid-19 pandemic has been bombarding all parts of the economy – travel bans, businesses halt, stock markets dwindle,” SunCity chair Alvin Chau Cheok Wa said.center_img Email Address Topics: Casino & games Finance Regions: Asia China Vietnam Macau Casino junket and integrated resorts operator SunCity Group has reported a 69.5% year-on-year decline in revenue for the first half of 2020, though fair value gains related to its convertible bonds significantly reduced the business’ net loss for the period.last_img read more

Stats Perform to use Opta data and video analysis in new integrity tool

first_img Topics: Social responsibility Tech & innovation Sports integrity Stats Perform’s work on integrity issues has also seen it become the first data provider to receive the International Betting Integrity Association’s (IBIA) Data Standards Accreditation for betting data collection.  These standards were set out by the IBIA in October 2020 and include a requirement that all data collection be carried out by people aged 18 and above, whose identities have been verified. Data providers must also carry out a detailed risk assessment for all sporting events or competitions on which they collect data and must make clear how the data was collected. “In one case two football matches were referred to Stats Perform for analysis which had been highlighted as high risk due to suspicions around a predetermined sporting fix between the two sides,” the data provider said. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The data business will use its Opta database, alongside video performance analysis and a series of advanced models to assess performances for integrity purposes. Stats Perform said that performance analysis had previously only played a peripheral role in the sporting integrity conversation, owing to the fact that the data required had “lack[ed] the necessary robustness for disciplinary proceedings”. The service sees Stats use statistics such as expected goals as well as player tracking data to help with investigations. These, as well as video analysis, are used alongside its existing integrity tools based on suspicious bet reports to create a more complete picture. Data provider Stats Perform has launched a new performance integrity analysis service – which uses its performance analysis tools to flag potentially suspicious activity – as part of its integrity offering. “Other investigations have shown changes in formation by teams in specific periods of matches, as well as individual errors aligned with suspicious moves in betting markets.” Alex Rice, chief rights officer for Stats Perform, said Opta had long proved to be a valuable tool in assessing player performance and it made sense to put it to use for integrity reasons as well. 15th February 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle “As with every element of sport integrity, success is built on a unified combination of measures across prevention, detection and investigation,” Jake Marsh, global head of integrity at Stats Perform, said. “Sport governing bodies have been calling for professional performance analysis to support the fight against match-fixing and we have answered that call.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “This is an additional tool and deterrent in the fight against sporting corruption, and a new front in maintaining the integrity of sport.” Stats Perform to use Opta data and video analysis in new integrity tool “Opta data is the most trusted, accurate and largest performance database in the industry,” Rice said. “We’ve been using it in the media and elite team performance space for years but by switching the perspective, we’re able to help answer questions about the integrity of a match using a professional approach and methodology.” However, it said that its use of the Opta database, as the largest performance analysis database in sport, combined with a transparent methodology, allow it to introduce these tools to integrity investigations for the first time. “The analysis revealed a demonstrably low lack of attacking intent from one team in the first match, including an historically low Expected Goals total and among the lowest pressing statistics in the entire Opta database.

Part 3: Ecuador’s people speak out

first_imgA 2018 popular protest in Quito targets the Ecuadorean president.Ibarra, EcuadorParts 1 and 2 are available on workers.org.Workers World spoke with Pedro de la Cruz, an Indigenous representative at the Constituent Assembly of 2008, the Constituyente, who spoke of what was happening in his region.De la Cruz and Indigenous leaders of five communes in and around Cotacachi, a town in the countryside about 30 miles west of Ibarra, made use of  “ancestral herbal cleaning agents” and raised funds to purchase chemicals (there was no government help) when they organized “mingas” − community work for collective action − to disinfect roads and streets. Faced with the COVID-19 threat, the communes organized road closings with roadblocks to prevent the National Police from reentering the communities of the canton after an incident involving repression of youths. Road closings restrict traffic to only one entrance, making it possible to disinfect every car entering the area.“Solidarity and social economy” campaigns are rising up out of necessity everywhere to solve local problems. Indigenous, community-based and socialist programs will serve as models for a new Ecuador. People in Otavalo and other cities are organizing urban gardens with municipal assistance.An article published on greennetworkproject.org on April 22 illustrates the leadership of an Indigenous elected official in Azuay Province. The official used provincial resources to organize mingas to provide health assistance and support people in quarantine. Peasants deliver harvestsThe people governing Azuay promote bartering agricultural produce with two neighboring provinces. Peasants have delivered 45 tons of Indigenous harvests from small farming communities free to poor neighborhoods in nearby Guayaquil.In Quito a team of volunteers is prepared to work with the municipality in a campaign to assist 3,500 people who live on income from recycling, which adds up to approximately 15,000 people counting their families.In the very epicenter of the pandemic, Mónica Brito Mendoza, teacher and activist from the sector of the Guasmo Sur in Guayaquil, was interviewed by Voices from Guayaquil. (April 25, rebelion.org)In her sector of Guasmo, Brito Mendoza reported, “Seven cooperatives with approximately 3,000 families do not have access to free medical care. We have the Guasmo hospital nearby, but this hospital has not been able to meet the demand of the population, since it had to attend the cases of COVID-19 in the whole city.”The teacher/activist said, “Without access to free hospital or medical care, the poor families in my cooperative, living in precarious and overcrowded housing, have created solidarity networks.” Free medical care is provided by volunteers online through direct phone calls and via Whatsapp texting. Neighbors distribute food to each other, making certain that the poorest families are fed. Organizing to disinfect streets twice a week helps to calm people and to solidarize the community. Brito Mendoza herself has contracted and survived the coronavirus, thanks to telemedical assistance, but she has lost family to the disease. She is actively helping others, using the same digital technology that she believes saved her.She observed: “We are fortunate that in our neighborhoods the self-employed merchants carry the groceries to our doorsteps. Throughout the morning, the sellers of the most varied products that can be offered in the market parade around, selling fruits and vegetables, dairy products, grains, seafood and medicine, all in tricycles, cars and trucks, accompanied by their respective speakers. This has made it so that you don’t need to go out much.“Our country has suffered a hard blow to the health budget in the last three years,” she continued. “In coastal areas such as Guayaquil, workers in charge of vector spraying to control mosquitos were fired, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to face an impressive increase in dengue outbreaks because the fumigation budget was practically eliminated. “This should lead the people of Guayaquil and Ecuador to understand that free public health care is a citizen’s right that the State must guarantee. Without health there is no life; without health there is no economy.” The masses of Ecuador had shut the country down in the first week of last October in solidarity with the Indigenous uprising against President Lenín  Moreno’s package of International Monetary Fund austerity measures that ended the fuel subsidy. The country was ready to heat up the streets again on May Day. Public service workers had been suspended without compensation in the months of March and April. Trade unions (which represent 4 percent of the working class) denounced the layoffs, flexibilization [allowing bosses to worsen working conditions and control schedules] and a proposal to tax wages to pay for the crisis. CONAIE issues manifestoThis year the Confederation of Indigenous Nations (CONAIE) issued a manifesto with strong unifying demands. May Day was quiet in comparison with October, but when the pandemic runs its course, the people will rise up again. It’s only a matter of time.Meanwhile, 40,000 prisoners are threatened by overcrowding, which makes physical distancing impossible. There were prison uprisings in Ibarra and other locations. Prison factories are producing rough coffins for Guayaquil. On the morning of April 12 prisoners in El Inca Social Rehabilitation Center in Quito began a hunger strike to demand testing and health protections in the face of the COVID-19 emergency. The Department of Labor provoked an outcry from trade unions and the Ecuadorian Medical Federation on April 28 (three days before May Day) with resolution #022, which declares COVID-19 does not constitute “an occupational disease” for health workers and other at-risk essential workers. Minister of Health Zevallos had claimed health workers brought the disease to work with them.Minister of Government María Paula Romo (citizen commander of the National Police that murdered 11 people during the October uprising) tweeted #022 after the outcry. She said that the burden will be on workers to prove their illness is “a workplace accident.”Health workers and citizens protested drastic budget cuts and the firing of thousands of doctors and nurses in early 2019. Protests are ongoing in Ibarra, Quito, Cuenca and Guayaquil over the lack of personal protective equipment, inadequate supplies and hospital facilities to cope with the pandemic.On March 26, the citizens of Pedernales had to go into the streets in violation of the curfew to stop the health ministry from moving their much needed mobile tent and trailer “hospital” from there to Guayaquil. But there is an untold story in Pedernales, a city without a hospital which hasn’t yet suffered any fatalities from the pandemic. Hundreds died in Pedernales four years ago on April 16, 2016, when it was levelled by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck the coastal province of Manabi. The province’s residents remember President Moreno’s betrayal of the earthquake victims when he diverted $800 million earmarked for reconstruction. Ecuadoreans will not forget how neoliberal governments always put profits first, before the needs of the people. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Momentum builds for general strike if Trump attempts coup

first_imgA movement has been growing since the Rochester Labor Council’s Oct. 8 resolution supporting a general strike if Trump refuses to leave office. This bold initiative was followed by a similar resolution by the Central Wisconsin Labor Federation. Both groups called on the AFL-CIO to launch the general strike to thwart a right-wing, racist, anti-worker Trump coup.Now the push is on for workers to withhold their labor in defense of their basic democratic rights. The Western Massachusetts Area Labor Federation passed a resolution Oct. 19 for a general strike and other “nonviolent action,” if “Donald Trump and his GOP enablers attempt to obstruct, subvert, sabotage, overturn or reject a fair and complete count of presidential ballots.” Federation organizer Lydia Wood explained, “We consider that the most powerful tool the movement has.” There are 30 member unions in the federation.On Oct. 21, the MLK Labor Council, which covers King County around and including Seattle, resolved to “work with allies in the anti-racist, environmental justice, feminist and poor peoples movements as well as the LGBTQ+, religious minorities and immigrant communities to make contingency plans in response to undemocratic actions by President Trump and his allies.”The council resolved further that “MLK Labor will take actions to prepare for widespread nonviolent action including protests and work-stoppages by coordinating peacekeeper and other necessary trainings.” AFSCME Local 304, representing state workers, had passed a resolution two days earlier urging the Council to take this position.An October 20 webinar to discuss the general strike strategy featured Association of Flight Attendants-CWA President Sara Nelson, a potential candidate to succeed AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Tens of thousands of rank-and-file unionists have signed a “defend democracy” pledge to take to the streets and shut the country down, if necessary to prevent a coup. The Detroit area branch of the American Postal Workers Union appealed to members to sign the pledge.Store clerks in 1946 general strike, Oakland, Calif.Trumka has not yet taken a position on the general strike calls. But, as Portland Electrical Workers (IBEW) member Doreen McGrath states: “There is a lot of groundswell from rank-and-file workers who are putting pressure on union leadership to pass these resolutions.”General strikes — collective work stoppages involving a large section of workers in a particular area or a country — are uncommon in the U.S. Besides May Day 2006, the best-known general strikes took place in Seattle in 1919 and in Minneapolis and San Francisco in 1934. Others occurred in Terre Haute, Ind., in 1935, Lansing, Mich., in 1937 and Oakland, Calif., in 1946 — all a long time ago.More calls for “no business as usual” are sure to come if Trump does not respect the vote of workers and oppressed people. This general strike would be one of the few political strikes — as distinguished from economic strikes — in U.S. labor history. The most recent was the mass strike of immigrant workers on May 1, 2006. In 1947, 250,000 autoworkers walked off the job to protest the anti-union Taft-Hartley Act, which led to union-busting across the country in the decades that followed. Recently, professional athletes struck in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.A general strike countrywide — or even in scattered locations — over a political crisis would intensify the class struggle in ways unseen in decades.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
