The combined group has a market value of about $11bn.Investors have been focussing on potential buyers for the more lucrative beer business, which is seen as a cash cow with some of the highest profit margins in the brewing world.The ailing wine business, with vineyards from California’s Napa Valley to the Hunter Valley near Sydney, had been seen as the unwanted child and Foster’s said on Wednesday it would continue to work on splitting the beer and wine units.Sales of Foster’s wine, including Beringer, Penfolds and Wolf Blass, have been hit by a deep US recession and a trend away from low-end, bulk wines in Australia. The strong Aussie dollar has also been a drag, slashing the value of US earnings.“This puts the whole company in play. If you are one of the big brewers, you probably didn’t want to be saddled with a wine business you didn’t understand or want,” said Tom Elliott, managing director of hedge fund MM&E Capital.“Now you know there are potential buyers out there, you can make a bid for the whole company knowing that you can offload the wine business to private equity or someone else,” he said.Foster’s shares closed up 4.5 per cent at A$6.34.

TIU bans trio for match-fixing

first_img Email Address Sports integrity Hatem admitted guilt for several offences including contriving or attempting to contrive the outcome or any other aspect of a tennis event, and failing to report solicitation to do so to the TIU. Egypt’s Mostafa Hatem, whose highest Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) ranking was 1556, was issued with a three-year ban (with one year suspended) and given a suspended fine of $3,000 (£2,192/€2,440). The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), which as of 1 January 2021 has rebranded as the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA), has banned players from Egypt, Slovakia and Uzbekistan for offences related to sports betting and match-fixing. In May last year, the TIU issued a warning to the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA)’s members that the sport faced an increased threat of match-fixing due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The bans follow a wave of similar sanctions issued throughout 2020 by the TIU, which became known as the ITIA as of 1 January 2021. The agency will continue to cover betting integrity enforcement in tennis in 2021, before adding doping to its remit from 2022. Baskova, whose highest Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) ranking was 1117 in singles and 777 in doubles, was banned for a period of 12 years and issued with a fine of $40,000. The majority of the fine is suspended, however, with $1,000 payable within 90 days. Topics: Social responsibility Sports betting Sports integrity Regions: Asia North Africa & Middle East Egpyt Uzbekistan Central and Eastern Europe Slovakia Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The unit announced in July that operators had reported 24 cases of suspicious betting activity relating to the sport during Q2 2020, despite the suspension of most major professional competitions internationally, as a result of the pandemic.

Supercharging sports content

first_img Regions: Europe Sports betting With its roots as a media business, Spotlight Sports Group has an in-depth understanding of how to optimise content for different types of platform and audience. 8th June 2021 | By Elena Carruthers Branching out Topics: Sports betting Tags: Sports Betting sports content Houlding touched on how Superfeed is tailored towards both affiliate and sportsbook operators. Being media experts and owning numerous affiliate sites itself, Spotlight Sports Group recognises the unique challenges faced by these acquisition platforms. Just as rich, data-driven insights help users to take action, statistics provided from A/B testing have the same effect on operators, allowing them to see clear and tangible benefits of a robust content engine — notably, increased engagement and turnover. Sportsbook operators should keep an open mind to new engagement and revenue opportunities.“The priority for operators  is always going to be those major sports where the turnover is highest,” says Houlding. “The purpose of Superfeed is to digest all of that data and provide actionable insight, a tangible betting opportunity. We essentially do all the hard work to crunch that data and provide betting insights that are actionable and a recommended bet for the end-user.” “With affiliates, it becomes more about productising the content. Superfeed can provide ready-made widgets which pull all of the content together in an expansive way to be able to maximise engagement on the page and create an immersive media experience.” “We’re looking forward to a lot of exciting developments that will help us to continue developing globally”, concludes Houlding.” Sam Houlding explains how operators can provide the ultimate sports betting experience for customers and stay ahead of the tide. However, while focusing on major sports is a safe bet, being able to scale content quickly to cover a range of sporting events and branch out into different local markets can unlock new engagement opportunities, he adds. Houlding also accepts that after a year of economic hardship, investing in content and any form of new technology can be perceived as risky. Further, as  live sporting events pick up in pace, finding the time and resources to research content solutions can feel like a draining task. A tailored approach Sam Houlding has worked at Spotlight Sports Group for more than ten years. Houlding, Chief Commercial Officer, is responsible for driving B2B sales in Europe and the US, while developing high-level strategic partnerships across Spotlight Sports Group’s suite of affiliate brands. Statistical analysis of these tests has found the increase in the amount bet attached to using Superfeed betting intelligence is as high as 37%.Additionally, 39% of those who view content through Superfeed are more likely to place a bet, with a 40% increase in dwell time. As well as focusing on the potential turnover of these events in themselves, operators should be embracing  the chance to drive longer-term results, says Spotlight Sports Group’s Sam Houlding. Indeed, Houlding argues that although live sports have gradually  made their  return over the last year, it  was never quite enough to build these long-term engagement opportunities.center_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Actionable insights Supercharging sports content To ensure the content engine is a good fit for partners, A/B testing offers the chance for potential partners to see Superfeed in action: “This allows operators to test and trial the power of Superfeed on their products,” says Houlding. The first hurdle is finding technology that integrates effectively and is conducive to efficiency. Beyond the technical considerations, operators must define exactly what their needs are and what they want to get out of their content engine, according to Houlding. As an event-packed summer approaches, operators have the opportunity to truly make their mark on customers. Email Address While fans looked on at last summer’s postponement of the Euros and Olympics  with dismay, sportsbook operators grieved the loss of significant  revenue and engagement opportunities. Now that the tide is turning, operators are now shifting focus to the summer ahead and the new opportunities at hand.   “When you look at the period of suspension last year, and as some of the key sports dropped away, it became quite apparent how shallow sometimes the engagement cycle is on sports below the major sports.” Maximising these opportunities is all to do with timing. This begins with tapping into the momentum building up to these events and then providing betting insights at the right time pre, during, and post-event. Spotlight Sports Group’s all-encompassing content engine, Superfeed, is a powerful content engine that operators can use following  a single integration directly into their markets across a huge range of sports, and is aimed at providing actionable insights from a trusted, independent voice. “As sports comes into full force again throughout the remainder of the year, operators will have a focus on serving engaging content across a real range of sports.” When planning a retention strategy, the driving factors for success are enhanced CRM and engagement of the existing audience. Critically, providing rich and concise content is what will make the experience of this audience really stand out, he argues. Looking to the future, Spotlight Sports Group aims to continue expanding its offerings across commercial, tech, and content operations. After devoting time to increasing its  sports betting content offering in the U.S, the media specialist plans to continue this with a particular focus on the affiliate market. “Where before there was a huge focus on acquisition, there’s an acknowledgment now that engaging those customers you’ve acquired and maximising the value of those customers and the experience that they have is just as important.”  “A whole depth of sports has become more important now. As the sporting calendar gets busier through the year, making sure that you can increase engagement across a range of sporting events is the key focus – and the challenge.”  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “Content should come in at the right moment to contextually serve the actionable betting insights at the right point within that richer media offering,” says Houlding. Context is key, he argues. “I think on affiliate and media sites you have to think about how content is placed within the wider media piece you are trying to deliver.”last_img read more

Behind a path paved with concrete slabs which divides the private and public areas, there is a big wooden gate. We are a few meters away from the sea. Children´s voices are heard and remind that we are visiting the house of a family that knows how to combine peacefulness and the hustle and bustle of kids playing.Save this picture!© Antonio Mercurio & Valentina RoccoRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamWoodEGGERLaminatesWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildThe house, situated on a narrow trapezoid plot of land, achieves the best possible orientation: the main rooms face directly South while the passing areas face North. With the help of light, the project consists of a ground floor that holds public spaces like the living room, the dining room and the kitchen. These are connected with the outside thanks to large sliding glass doors and a wooden paving that serves as a path running towards the porch, which is protected by the cantilevers of the upper floor. The basement contains a utility room, a garage and a polyvalent space. The first floor is divided by a double-height central piece into two different areas: both children´s bedrooms on one side and the main bedroom on the other.Save this picture!© Antonio Mercurio & Valentina RoccoThe final result is a light house with a simple composition of volumes, a series of three pieces where the most important rooms of the program are located. A long, narrow, rectangular plan allows for enough garden space on the South side of the house. On that side we find the access, enclosed between two of the pieces. The North side hides the ramp that leads to the garage.Save this picture!© Antonio Mercurio & Valentina RoccoThe inside was rationally conceived in order to make it functional, emphasizing its natural light and harmony with the outside. From the double storey dining room, located in the central piece, a staircase leads us to the upper floors.

‘Fight for 15’ kicks off in Appalachia

first_imgEthan Young, president of Students for Appalachian Socialism, addresses the audience March 25.WW photo: Benji PylesHuntington, W.Va. — A coalition of activists from Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST), Workers World Party, Students for Appalachian Socialism, the Jewel City Solidarity Network and Service Employees union Local 32BJ held a public meeting on March 25 to kick off a “Fight for 15 at Marshall University!” campaign. The meeting was attended by campus workers, faculty, students and community supporters, who received the coalition’s message with enthusiasm and support. Attendees signed petitions that will be hand-delivered to the university administration. The goal of the meeting was to begin to build a mass movement to force the university to accept the coalition’s list of demands.The coalition’s demands include: A $15 minimum wage for all workers with a stipulation that the increased cost of workers’ wages will not come from the elimination of any jobs or by shifting workers to part-time, stagnation or elimination of advancement of workers’ wages past the new entry-level wage of $15, or tuition and/or fee hikes to students;The university must acknowledge the disproportionate number of women and people of color at the bottom of the wage scale and work to rectify such disparities immediately through the equitable promotion of women and people of color;All MU workers must be guaranteed safe, just and humane working conditions in a non-discriminating environment. This includes clearly publicized avenues for reporting wage violations and/or unsafe working conditions. MU must protect workers’ rights to organize, to speak out about poor working conditions or low wages and to file grievances without fear of retaliation;The university must allow and facilitate the creation of a Living Wage Oversight Board, an employee organization with oversight responsibilities for ensuring the university’s carrying out of these demands and its ongoing commitment to providing a living wage for all employees. This task force will also serve as a resource for workers to report grievances and labor violations without fear of reprisal or retaliation.The coalition stated that if the university rejects these demands, actions will be taken and the university’s employment practices will be publicized. The coalition will hold its second meeting on April 8.Administration’s attack on workers exposedThe coalition informed the attendees that university President Dr. Stephen Kopp was given a $155,000 raise in the past two years, taking his salary to $390,000 a year, a 56 percent increase.  Other administrators took raises of 21 percent to 42 percent. This all happened amid skyrocketing costs for tuition, fees and textbooks as well as the ongoing slashing of the university budget.Coalition member Jason Ware of SEIU BJ32 pointed out, “A 56 percent raise to a minimum wage worker making $15,080 a year would take that worker to $11.31 an hour or $23,525 a year; an increase of $8,500 a year. These administration officials’ wage increases alone would provide funds to pay 31 minimum wage workers $11.31 instead of $7.25.”This reporter, representing WWP, FIST and SAS, talked about the high salaries of top university employees and officials.  “Approximately 168 workers enjoy wages in excess of $100,000 a year and have enjoyed wage increases of over $1 million combined. Imagine what changes could be made in the lives of minimum wage workers, many of whom are single parents and people of color, if they were to receive $1 million of wage increases!”Privatization and contracted workMany of the minimum wage workers at Marshall University work in privatized sectors such as cleaning, food service and the bookstore.  It was revealed that MU received commission checks from Sodexo for over $1 million as part of a third-party agreement on profits made from food services.  Marshall also received commission checks of over $1.5 million from Follett Higher Education group, which runs the bookstore, which sells “required textbooks” for hundreds of dollars each. With all these profits being made, it is obscene for these companies to be paying their workers such low wages.In this era of dead-end capitalism, workers are continually being displaced by technology and machinery and forced into low-wage and part-time positions.  The capitalists that own the banks and the means of production are making record profits while a record number of the working class slides deeper into poverty. For this reason it is imperative to organize low-wage workers to combat this trend.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Opposition journalist escapes murder attempt, one year after killing of Elmar Husseynov

He survived and managed to get help but is now critically ill. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Follow the news on Azerbaijan News March 6, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Opposition journalist escapes murder attempt, one year after killing of Elmar Husseynov Help by sharing this information Two other journalists on the newspaper suffered previously similar attacks. “We are outraged at the brutally of the methods used in a bid to intimidate opposition journalists,” said Reporters Without Borders. “This is not the first time that such violence has been used against a journalist in Azerbaijan and this case demonstrates the constant and worrying deterioration in press freedom in the country, one year after the, as yet unpunished, murder of Elmar Husseynov. “We urge President Ilham Aliyev to make sure an investigation is opened to identify and punish those responsible for this assault”, it added.Huseynli was attacked when he was reporting in the Badamdar district. He was struck several times in the back, until he lost consciousness. When he came to, he found he was in a Lada car, along with three men.His abductors drove him to the edge of the city, near a former bus terminal and threw him out. They bound his hands and broke his fingers. One of the assailants then stabbed him in the neck. He collapsed and his assailants left him beside the road.He recovered consciousness a few minutes later, raised the alarm and was taken to hospital. He underwent an operation but remains in a critical condition because of a heavy loss of blood. He is currently at home because his family feared leaving him in hospital where security forces could come to question him during the night.He is very weak, can neither eat nor drink nor move around unaided.Other journalists on the daily Azadlig were previously victims of similar attacks. On 26 February 2005, Ganimat Zahidov and Azer Ahmedov, respectively editor and technical editor of the daily, were abducted by unknown assailants in Baku, threatened, beaten up and humiliated. Their captors told them to stop publishing articles critical of President Ilham Aliyev and to stop reporting on rioting in the country’s prisons.Azer Ahmedov told Reporters Without Borders he was convinced that the attack on his colleague was linked to his work and the newspaper suspects some members of the Azerbaijan authorities of having instigated this murder attempt.Huseynli had received threatening phone calls last month. He was several times told to stop writing and to leave journalism. He had written a number of articles condemning corruption at high levels of Azerbaijan authority and the criminal activities of some oligarchs.center_img AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia to go further June 4, 2021 Find out more June 8, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh April 9, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders expressed “outrage” after a savage attack on opposition journalist Fikret Huseynli, of the daily Azadlig, who was kidnapped, tortured and left for dead in Baku on 5 March 2006 and urge President Ilham Aliyev to make sure an investigation is opened to identify and punish those responsible for this assault. last_img read more
