Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany German gaming giant Gauselmann Group has struck a new, exclusive sponsorship deal with 2.Bundesliga club Fortuna Düsseldorf.Gauselmann, which like Fortuna is based in the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen, will use its Merkur sports betting brand for the partnership, which states that the club may no sign similar agreements with other gambling businesses.It builds on a partnership with the Merkur Spiel-Arena, for which Fortuna is the principal tenant. Gauselmann secured naming rights to the stadium, which has also hosted the Eurovision Song Contest, in 2018.“The fact that we, as the main tenant of the Merkur Spiel-Arena, have now been able to conclude a comprehensive partnership with its namesake is an important step for Fortuna that has only now become possible,” Fortuna Düsseldorf marketing director Christian Koke said.“We are pleased to be able to exclusively welcome a company based in Nordrhein-Westfalen as a partner in this sector, because the gambling and gaming market, which also includes sports betting, provides economic benefits for football, but is also a sensitive field,” Koke continued.“We would like to thank those responsible at the Gauselmann Group for the fair discussions and the willingness to enter into such a long-term and comprehensive partnership with us in a difficult time like this.”Fortuna will play in the 2.Bundesliga, Germany’s second highest division, in the 2020-21 season, after it was relegated from the top-tier Bundesliga in 2019-20.Gauselmann Group marketing director Manfred Stoffers said the business was excited to have agreed the partnership with the club.“After all, Fortuna is one of the leading lights of sport in Düsseldorf,” he added.“[Through] our sponsorship, we can make a small contribution to ensuring that Fortuna gets back on the up as soon as possible.”The agreement comes amid a period of flux for the German gambling industry, with state Minister-Presidents this week agreeing on a transition period in which operators can offer online casino, poker and sports betting.This will be in place until the new regulatory framework, the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag, comes into force from July next year.Operators will be required to abide by the terms of that Treaty, such as limiting slot stakes to €1 and restricting in-play betting and must implement all player protection measures set out in the legislation by 15 October this year. Table games, meanwhile, will remain prohibited under the transition period.center_img 11th September 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Sports betting Gauselmann seals Fortuna Düsseldorf partnership Email Addresslast_img read more

The share price is up around 15%, over a period when the FTSE 100 index is only up around 3%. This outperformance has coincided with the release of full-year results, the UK vaccination initiative gaining momentum, and other factors. Over a broader one-year period, the share price is still down over 50%, but I think there are several reasons to be more optimistic for 2021.Full-year resultsThe first reason I’m optimistic for Rolls-Royce shares might sound strange. It’s actually relating to the full-year results that came out last week. The loss before tax was £2.9bn, an exceptionally large figure. Even though this figure was well-reported in the news, Rolls-Royce shares traded sideways on the release date. 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…Normally I’d expect a share price to plummet on such a bad figure, but it got me thinking. Rolls-Royce shares are already heavily down from 2020. Regular trading updates made investors aware of the bad situation within the company. So really, it was no surprise when the final figure came out. In effect, the share price didn’t fall because it was expected.So if I can discount the loss, what else was there to think about? Well the company cut £1bn in costs during the year. It raised £7.3bn in new capital, and expects to generate £2bn from selling off different assets. From that angle, 2021 looks positive. A second reason I’d look to buy Rolls-Royce shares is the diversification of the business. For a while, I thought of the business only operating in the civil aviation space. Although this is the largest area, it’s not the only one. The results showed that good profits were made from its power systems and defense arms. In fact, the revenues generated from these two areas combined were larger than from civil aerospace.Going forward into 2021, if these areas can continue to grow, and civil aerospace recovers, Rolls-Royce shares could see a strong move higher. The business would be firing on all fronts, something it hasn’t been able to do in the recent past.Sentiment helping Rolls-Royce sharesThe final reason I like Rolls-Royce shares is the correlation between positivity and the rising share price. When I mean positivity, I’m talking about the sentiment regarding the pandemic. Here in the UK, the vaccination rollout is marching on. In the US, President Biden has also set out an ambitious timeframe to get people vaccinated. The more this continues, the quicker international travel and flying will start again.On balance, there are still reasons to be cautious with the stock. For example, the impact of the pandemic is likely to linger for some time. It’s not as though anyone can click their fingers and restore the billions lost in 2020 overnight. It’s going to be a slow road to recovery, and one that could weigh on Rolls-Royce shares for a while still to come.As a long-term investor, I can look past this. I would look to buy the stock, even with the knowledge that the recovery won’t be overnight.last_img read more

Different take on fundraising from the London Marathon

Blind employment charity CLARITY is doing just that by inviting supporters not to donate but to buy its products.CLARITY runs a factory in London, which employs visually impaired people to make beauty and cleaning products. Runner Louise Bennett is inviting people to recognise her run by purchasing products such as a car cleaning kit, a handwash and gift sets including shower gel, handwash or body lotion.“It’s always hard to ask people for money, particularly in the current economic climate where everyone is counting their pennies,” said Louise. “It’s great that people who sponsor me will get something for their money, as well as supporting a wonderful charity that provides employment for blind people.”Bennett, 33, from Rushden, Northants completed the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday in 5 hours 47 minutes. She is hoping to raise £500 for CLARITY and has currently raised £200 towards her target.www.clarity-fundraising.org Different take on fundraising from the London Marathon AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 19 April 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 22, 2016 Facebook Twitter Dow, DuPont Merger Wins Shareholder Approval Facebook Twitter SHARE Dow Chemical and DuPont Company both announced that shareholders in each company had voted in favor of having the two companies merge into an entity which would be called DowDuPont. After the initial merger, the companies would then break up into three separate entities. Just under 825 million Dow shareholder votes were in favor of the deal, while 13 million were against and ten million abstained. A DuPont spokesman said 669 million shares voted to approve the merger, with 8.5 million against and 3 million shares abstaining. The deal needs approval from regulators, and, if approved, the deal should close later this year.The deal will serve as a way to reduce costs for both companies before they break up into three separate units. Each would deal with specific products like agriculture, material sciences, and specialty products in nutrition and electronics. Each of the new companies would be publicly traded.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Dow, DuPont Merger Wins Shareholder Approval Previous articleSouthern Corn Rust Working Farther North into IndianaNext articleWould Vilsack as VP be Good for Ag?

Secret tribunal orders Reuters cameraman held for six months

If the US forces have evidence suggesting he did anything illegal, they should show it to his family and his employer. The US army’s stubbornness in refusing to answer Reporters Without Borders’ letters and requests from his family and Reuters is alarming.”A US army spokesman said today that Mashadani would be entitled to a review of his case within 180 days and that he would not be allowed to receive any visits for the first 60 days.Mashadani has been detained in Abu Ghraib prison since 8 August without the US army giving any grounds for holding him. His family said US marines arrested him after viewing what was on his camera tapes during a routine check at his home.At least two journalists or foreign news agency employees are still being held by the US army in Iraq.

Beijing-based French reporter told she must leave China

first_img China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Follow the news on China RSF_en to go further The correspondent of the French news weekly L’Obs, Gauthier has been told that her visa is not being renewed because of a story last month about Chinese counter-terrorism policies. This means she will have to leave by 31 December.Published on 18 November and headlined “(After the Paris) attacks, China’s solidarity is not without ulterior motives,” her article accused the government of using the Jihadi threat and security requirements as pretexts for cracking down on calls for independence in the far-west province of Xinjiang.As a result of the article, Gauthier was the target of a smear campaign in the government-controlled media as well as a series of online attacks. Some sites went so far as to post photos of Gauthier along with her private address.“We are shocked by the Chinese authorities’ decision to expel this journalist, who has been based in China for several years,” Reporters Without Borders editor in chief Aude Rossigneux said. “The government is yet again putting pressure on journalists who criticize its policies. It is not the job of correspondents to act as mouthpieces of the People’s Republic of China. We urge the government to stop using intimidation to obstruct reporting by foreign journalists.”Harassment by the authorities, obstruction and intimidation attempts continue to be the lot of foreign journalists and their local fixers in China. Several foreign journalists were manhandled and prevented from working freely after the explosions in the port city of Tianjin in August.China is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Goshen sixth grader one of four essay winners

first_imgLatest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Email the author Sankey said his fifth-grader teacher had spent much of the year teaching her students about the Civil War, but during his teacher’s lessons on the Constitution, Sankey said he learned the most.“We learned a lot about the Civil War, because we did that all year,” Sankey said. “When we talked about the Constitution, we learned why the government is important. It’s important because it enforces the laws that you have to obey.”Sankey said he enjoyed learning about the Constitution and it would sadden him if he ever found out that his right to free speech had been taken away.“It would make me really sad because that would mean I couldn’t communicate with other people and mingle and know people,” Sankey said. “I talk about things all the time. I talk about everything.” This Video Will Soon Be Banned. Watch Before It’s… Skip By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Four students were chosen as winners in PCRW’s contest with two winners coming from Troy City Schools and Pike Liberal Arts and the other two coming from Pike County Schools. The first place winners of the contest received a $50 gift card from Troy Bank & Trust while the second place winners received $25 gift cards. All four winners will be featured on Troy Bank & Trust’s fall billboards.Winners were determined anonymously through a blind-scoring system. Judges scored essays based on a numbering system with no prior knowledge of the writers. PCRW President Ginny Hamm said students were not judged on their writing style on grammar, but instead simply on their idea and opinion of what the Constitution meant to them as American citizens and how well they were able to convey that message to judges.“It means a lot to me that I was able to win the contest,” Sankey said. “I am proud and I am excited.”center_img Goshen sixth grader one of four essay winners Sponsored Content You Might Like Roby speaks to PCRW MESSENGER PHOTO/SCOTTIE BROWNPictured from left are Kayla Dendy, Becky Baggett, Anna Adams, Eden Hipps, Martha Roby, Emmy Stevens, Adam Grice… read more Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 3:00 am Friday, August 28, 2015 Print Article MESSENGER PHOTO/SCOTTIE BROWNPictured from left to right are Neil Dobson, Lori Williams, Melanie Hamlin, Taylor Hamlin, DeMarcus Sankey, Nicole Sankey, District Attorney Tom Anderson and Frances Taylor, president of the Alabama Federation of Republican Women.
