Dow rise fuelled by McDonald’s lift

first_img whatsapp THE Dow notched a seventhstraight day of gains yesterday, but light volume suggested that investors don’t believe the more than five-month rally has the legs to keep going. Surprisingly strong sales by McDonald’s boosted optimism on consumer spending and drove the Dow’s gains on what turned out to be the quietest day of trading so far in 2011, with total volume about 17 per cent below last year’s daily average. The light volume, “textbook wise, tells you this market is running on fumes,” said Peter Boockvar, equity strategist at Miller Tabak & Co in New York. “But that doesn’t mean it can’t continue.” Weakness in energy shares limited gains in the S&P 500 and Nasdaq after China, the world’s second-biggest energy consumer, raised interest rates for the second time in six weeks. The move pressured commodities on fears of lower demand but had little market impact outside that sector. McDonald’s shares surged 2.6 per cent to $75.36 after its January same-store sales beat expectations, led by a rebound in European demand. The S&P consumer discretionary index was up 1.2 per cent and was by far the top performer among S&P sectors. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 71.52 points, or 0.59 per cent, at 12,233.15. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index was up 5.52 points, or 0.42 per cent, at 1,324.57. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 13.06 points, or 0.47 per cent, at 2,797.05. Just 6.99bn shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, well below last year’s daily average of 8.47bn. In extended trading, Dow component Walt Disney shares jumped 3.2 per cent after it reported forecast-beating first-quarter earnings and revenue, as consumers travelled to its theme parks and businesses bought up ad time on its TV networks. The S&P energy sector was by far the weakest S&P sector, down 0.5 per cent. US crude for March delivery settled down 0.6 per cent. Merger activity continued for a second straight day with Kindred Healthcare’s planned acquisition of RehabCare Group to create a post-acute healthcare services company. Kindred Healthcare jumped 28.3 per cent to $25.00 and RehabCare soared 45.5 per cent to $37.05.On the downside, US-listed shares of generic drugmaker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries’ fell 5.4 per cent to $52.02 after it reported results that fell short of forecasts. Avon Products posted a steeper-than-expected drop in quarterly profit.

Q&A: Per Thorn, Hero Gaming

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 28th June 2018 | By Louella Hughes Topics: Casino & games Q&A: Per Thorn, Hero Gaming This month we catch up with the head of product management for casino gamification pioneer Hero Gaming, which this week expanded its brand portfolio to four with the launch of no-registration brand Speedy, to find out more about its strategy, which content is performing best and plans for the Swedish market next year Casino & games This month we catch up with the head of product management for casino gamification pioneer Hero Gaming, which this week expanded its brand portfolio to four with the launch of no-registration brand Speedy, to find out more about its strategy, which content is performing best and plans for the Swedish market next yearWhich recent slot titles are performing particularly well for Hero Gaming, and what variances are you seeing across your four main brands of Casino Hero, CasiTabi, Betser and now Speedy? We can see a variance between our brands because we wanted it that way to ensure we don’t target the same players and cannibalise any of these brands. People underestimate the difference between markets and think all players play the same games.For instance, the most popular slots in Scandinavia are very different compared to those in the UK, which is not exactly far away!On Casino Heroes, Book of Dead has done very well without any help from specific promotions, as in our case, we can give out gifts to players that win our Boss Fights.We have recently launched Big Time Gaming titles such as Bonanza and Extra Chilli which are being played a lot.The slots that perform very well now are basically modern versions of older games. Many new versions of the classic game Book of Ra are available right now. Also high volatility games with the help from YouTube and Twitch where streamers upload their latest wins. Bonanza is a great example, for which I recently saw a video of someone winning over 18,000x the bet in the free spins mode.Which suppliers’ content performs most strongly and consistently for Hero Gaming, and why? This is actually pretty interesting, and what it comes down to is how creative we are with the supplier. Play N’ Go is a great example. We discuss and plan together how we should release their new games. If we just add a new game to the lobby it might disappear among all the other slots we have available so it’s important to work with our partners [to prevent this].Play N’ GO recently released the slot House of Doom, which is not a particularly special game from my perspective, but together we put together a great promotion where we built a whole new island in our adventure only for this game and the Swedish rock band that did the music for the games were bosses in our Boss Fights. This was a huge success and during this promotion House of Doom was our most played game by far.We have also worked very closely with NetEnt since we launched four years ago, and whenever we do something special together we always see great results too.What would you say are the major challenges for someone in your position for an online casino in 2018? We need to be clever in what we do to stay ahead of our competitors. We also need to be ready for new markets, ensuring we stay on top of the compliance requirements while at the same time making sure the product remains stable, safe and secure. It’s also important to strike the balance between being innovative and ensuring our product provides a world-class experience for our customers.Sometimes I just want our programmers to stop whatever they are doing and focus only on a new awesome idea that either myself or any another Hero has come up with. It’s always a challenge to stop myself when this happens!You take content from a wide variety of suppliers across your main brands. From your side, what would you like to see them do better or more of? What do they generally get wrong? I would love to see them being a lot more innovative and getting round the table with us and asking what we would like to see in a game, and most importantly what our players would like. After all, it’s all about the players and keeping them entertained. We started our own Boss Fights feature to enable our players to progress in our adventure, and the suppliers could definitely do something similar.Casino Heroes is focused on the Scandinavian countries, and the largest market there, Sweden, is set to regulate next year. What is your view of the proposed regulatory and tax framework there and is this viable enough for you to take a licence? We see this as something very positive and we will be applying for a licence. All the key stakeholders and management at Hero Gaming have been in the industry for many years and we are happy to see this market regulated.We would like to see more regulated markets because it is easier it is for us to make long-term strategic plans as a company, instead of being uncertain about what will happen next.I remember when the US shut down back in 2011, I was working from Costa Rica and we had 90% from our revenue coming from the US market at the time, which hit us hard.What games players are playing and staking on is obviously the main factor deciding a game’s position or ranking on your main homepages, but to what degree and on what basis do you intervene here. Also, how is the availability of data and AI changing how you deliver and personalise this? The ranking of our games is based on game rounds so we always have the most popular games by market at the top of the lobby. We can overwrite this if we want to push something specific, as we welcome innovation from our suppliers.We are much more likely to undertake custom development to ensure new games are well promoted if they are innovative. We love innovation and if we get help from a game provide in this area, we are ready and waiting to do our part.Data is everything these days. We segment players by various means ensuring individual players receive the offers and game releases that cater for their needs. Recently we launched a new live casino lobby that is the first step towards AI.It’s innovative, it’s personalised and can get players to the table quicker than before. It also remembers the games they have played before, always presenting these first to the player when they return to the site.Speedy Casino operates a no registration model. How do the players here differ from those signing up and playing via the conventional model?’ We only launched Speedy Casino [in Sweden and Finland] on 26 June, so it’s too early to give you an answer based on the data we have collected so far. But from earlier research we know that Swedish players love the simplicity of the no-registration and no-contact model.To deposit players must use Bank ID, which is very trustworthy in Sweden. When a player sees this they instantly trust us as a casino, which has been a struggle for the sector for many years.Our main goal with this new brand is to reach the players we might not reach with our adventure brand Casino Heroes or with our sports-focused brand Betser, and of course also to simply deliver what players want – and do it better than our competitors. You may be wondering what we are working on right now to make us stand out from the competition, but I can’t reveal that so you will have to wait and see!Casino Heroes uses gamification and elements drawn from non-gambling games with the aim of increasing player engagement. Have you tested how much longer this keeps players inside the casino ecosystem for and its impact on other KPIs such as lifetime values, time on site, spend per visit etc.? Without doubt gamification increases engagement. We have some of the best retention rates in the industry because our players are rewarded for simply playing the games they love which in turn leads to higher lifetime values and extended player sessionsWhat is your primary focus for the product side of the business over the next 12-18 months? Our focus on the product side right now is to stay compliant and be ready to adjust our product to follow the upcoming guidelines that will soon come for Sweden.Speedy Casino actually only took four weeks to build from scratch following our first meeting about it. We already have a lot of work planned for our developers to further improve this brand and can’t wait to release the next wave of exciting features we and of course introduce this concept to new markets.The thing I’m most proud of and most excited about is something we are developing right now. This is something completely new in our industry and it will be a game changer, I can seriously promise that. I have been in this industry for over 15 years and I have never been this excited before. I can’t wait to release it. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Lottoland and MoPlay partner Rightlander to improve affiliate compliance

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance Lottoland and MoPlay partner Rightlander to improve affiliate compliance Lottery betting operator Lottoland and Addison Global-owned sports betting brand MoPlay have signed deals with Rightlander to enhance their affiliate compliance and responsible gambling measures.Compliance specialist Rightlander will provide both operators with access to a number of tools, including its Automated Compliance Monitor, Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Monitor and Proactive Affiliate Finder.Rightlander said that the Automated Compliance Monitor enables operators to discover affiliate sites linking to their brands that they are currently unaware of. This allows the operators to ensure the affiliates sending traffic to their sites are acting responsibly. Proactive Affiliate Finder scans millions of web pages each month to identify new and prominent sites across geo-locations including the UK, Sweden, Denmark, Australia and the US.Both Lottoland and MoPlay will focus their compliance and responsible gambling efforts on the UK market. This comes after the GB Gambling Commission issued an industry-wide warning to operators to ensure their affiliate partners are not offering free-to-play games without age verification controls in place.“The Gambling Commission has made it very clear that the onus is on operators to ensure affiliates are acting responsibly, and Rightlander takes on much of the leg work required to do this,” Rightlander founder Ian Sims said.Stephanie Cook, senior affiliate manager at Lottoland, also said: “Our partnership with Rightlander will allow us to properly monitor our affiliate partners and ensure compliance.  We strongly believe that when it comes to affiliate compliance, the buck stops with the operator and we look forward to working with Rightlander.”Mark Henrich, general counsel at MoPlay added: “Compliance is key for us at MoPlay and the Rightlander compliance platform is the most efficient way for us to monitor affiliate content. Rightlander enables us to quickly and efficiently check all affiliate sites to ensure that their links are up-to-date and all their content is GBGC compliant.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Legal & compliance Strategy Tags: Online Gambling Lottery betting operator Lottoland and Addison Global-owned sports betting brand MoPlay have signed deals with Rightlander in order to enhance their affiliate compliance and responsible gambling measures. 19th November 2019 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Time – and money – at stake in Florida-led proposal to…

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! The Anatomy of Fear Republican U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott filed a two-page bill this week to extend daylight saving time through Nov. 7, 2021, eliminating the requirement to push clocks back an hour in fall and forward an hour in spring for one year.Rubio filed last year the Sunshine Protection Act of 2019, which would create permanent daylight saving time for all time zones nationwide. The bill awaits a hearing before the Senate’s Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.Rubio and Scott said suspending daylight saving time would save energy, prevent traffic injuries and reduce crime while improving physical fitness, reducing childhood obesity and benefitting the agricultural economy.The Florida Chamber of Commerce and state business associations maintain an extra hour of sunlight in the winter, during peak tourist season, would translate into more sales.“Our government has asked a lot of the American people over the past seven months, and keeping the nation on Daylight Saving Time is just one small step we can take to help ease the burden,” Rubio said in a statement. “More daylight in the after school hours is critical to helping families and children endure this challenging school year. Studies have shown many benefits of a year-round Daylight Saving Time, and while I believe we should make it permanent all year around, I urge my colleagues to – at the very least – work with me to avoid changing the clocks this fall.”Scott cited COVID-19 shutdowns as justification for extending daylight saving time.“After months of staying inside amid the coronavirus pandemic, families across the nation could use a little more sunshine and time to enjoy all that Florida has to offer,” Scott said.As Florida governor in 2018, Scott signed the Sunshine Protection Act, which declared Florida will adopt daylight saving time year-round if Congress amends the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which preempts state and local law from regulating daylight saving time.The bill, which was co-sponsored by then-U.S. Rep. Jeannette Nunez, now Florida’s lieutenant governor, passed in the state Senate, 33-2, and the House, 103-11.The House version was sponsored by state Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers. It originally called for Florida to move into the Atlantic Time Zone for nine months and be an hour ahead of the eastern United States and two hours ahead of the Central Time Zone, where much of the Florida Panhandle is located.President Lyndon Johnson signed the Uniform Time Act in 1966. It established daylight saving time from the last Sunday in April through the last Sunday in October.Daylight saving time dates have been amended twice, with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 adding four weeks to daylight saving time. It changed the start to the second Sunday in March and the end to the first Sunday in November.The U.S. Department of Transportation, which oversees standardized time zones, says daylight saving time saves energy, prevents traffic injuries and reduces crime.When the Energy Policy Act of 2005 added four weeks to daylight saving time in 2007, however, researchers found robberies decreased during by 7 percent, translating into $59 million annually in avoided social costs. Another study, based on Indiana’s residential utility use, found daylight saving time resulted in a 1% overall increase in electricity demand.Rubio said he will invoke Rule 14, which would allow the bill to bypass committee reviews to get it onto the Senate floor before time runs out on daylight saving time for this year. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Photo by Sonja Langford on Unsplash Daylight saving time could be extended for one year if a fast-tracked federal bill sponsored by Florida’s two U.S. senators is adopted before Nov. 1, when clocks fall back an hour at 2 a.m. local time across much of the world.center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate By John Haughey | The Center Square You have entered an incorrect email address!

From the number of steps on the path up the hill, the height of an old cypress reminiscent those described by Pater, to the precise dimension that sets the podium a whole number above sea level, serve as decisive matches to explain the format of its silhouette. But the reasons that model a house are always others, always the same ones.Save this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaWithin two unified formats, that of a large plan and another concentrated one, we layout the same unit twelve times: a square figure divided asymmetrically into four pieces. Sometimes central, sometimes laterally and others diagonally, each unit keeps a different relationship between the parts. Eventually, the pieces below will deal with the heavy work of the studio.Save this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaThe pieces above with the almost immaterial daily routines, always devising constructions from the air to produce them later elsewhere. Between these two factual worlds, domestic life is reserved, in turn regulated by a large day room and a pair of stacked rooms for the night. The living room floor slopes towards the west. By keeping the lintels on a single horizon, the progressive sequence of frames makes their depth relative. Entering the living room is equivalent to diving under the platform of the whole number. Against a mirror that shows inside what was on the other side of the street, one arrives at the studio. To enter the tower is a form of blindness. Here, the cypress turned into board becomes locked in a continuous spiral, which with a gray melancholy, gradually returns the view while climbing.Save this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaThe construction is a monolithic and regular concrete sediment with exposed aggregate. Only a slight change in the grain marks the difference between the podium and the tower. Inside, all the walls are covered by painted wood panels, barely thick and pierced by the galvanized steel frames that hold the windows.Save this picture!Axonometrica © Pezo von EllrichshausenWatch here the previously published video of Cien House, by Cristobal Palma.Project gallerySee allShow lessCantagua Residence / Raimundo AnguitaSelected ProjectsMaison Simon / Mathieu Noël & Élodie Bonnefous architectesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/465633/cien-house-pezo-von-ellrichshausen Clipboard Cien House / Pezo von EllrichshausenSave this projectSaveCien House / Pezo von EllrichshausenSave this picture!© Cristóbal PalmaHouses, Office Buildings•Chile Projectslast_img read more

Researching massive growth in giving.center_img Customers of Tesco have donated over 3.6 million meals to charity during the supermarket’s sixth Neighbourhood Food Collection this summer. The food will be redistributed to people in need via charity partners FareShare and The Trussell Trust, with Tesco adding an extra 30% to all customer donations.This year customers donated 13% more than they did in the 2014 collection. The total number of meals donated so far this year, including local collections, surplus food from Tesco’s dotcom distribution centres and Tesco’s 30% top-up, is over 6 million.Since the Neighbourhood Food Collection began in December 2012 over 27.5 million meals have been donated.Customers are also donating more food via Tesco stores on a daily basis throughout the year. In the first six months of 2015 over 2.1 million meals worth of food have been donated at permanent collection points that operate in 507 Tesco store. This is almost as much as the whole of 2014 combined.Volunteers from The Trussell Trust, FareShare, BT and the British Red Cross joined Tesco colleagues in store to collect donations from customers.The food collected will benefit people living in food poverty, many of whom are parents struggling with food costs due to lack of free school meals over the long summer holiday.According to research by The Trussell Trust, the number of people helped by foodbanks in the first half of the 2014-15 financial year is 38% higher than numbers helped during the same period last year.Lindsay Boswell, CEO of FareShare, said:“Yet again we have been blown away by everyone’s generosity. We are very grateful to Tesco and their colleagues for hosting the event, our amazing volunteers and partner organisations across the country who selflessly gave up their time to help collect food donations to the great British public who responded so generously to the call for action.“The food will now be redistributed to over 1,923 charities and community projects supported by FareShare, including play schemes supporting children and families over the holidays”.
