first_imgFinance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Treasury tipped to benefit from FOBT stake cut 18th September 2018 | By contenteditor New research predicts consumers will simply switch to other gambling products Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Finance A new report suggests the cut in the maximum stake for FOBTs could lead to a £100m (€112m/$130m) annual boost for the UK Treasury.While it has been estimated that the change could cost the betting industry more than £8bn, research by the Centre for Economic and Business Research (CEBR) suggests a combination of tax increases and consumer habits will benefit government coffers.The study, commissioned by amusement arcade trade group BACTA, estimates that while machine gaming duty receipts would decline by £287m a year, this would be more than offset by almost £420m of other benefits. CEBR cited a potential rise of Remote Gaming Duty to 20% whilst predicting that many gamblers would switch from FOBTs to other products and estimating that some users would divert their money to other, more productive parts of the economy.A spokesman for the Association of British Bookmakers told the Guardian that the research would do little to comfort the gambling industry and those whose jobs may be at risk.He said: “Recent announcements by major operators reveal the true impact of this decision, that thousands of betting shops will close and there will be thousands of job losses. Betting shops are now focused on the future of their staff, customers and suppliers.”UK bookmakers’ share prices tumbled in April when it was revealed that the government was to accept recommendations for a new £2 stake limit. Shares in William Hill fell by 14% just ahead of the announcement, with Paddy Power Betfair and GVC also well down.Chancellor Philip Hammond is expected to reveal the date of the FOBT changes in the budget later this year. There has been criticism of the amount of time it has taken to introduce the cut, although the Treasury has said it wants to give operators time to implement technological changes. At a meeting of a cross-party parliamentary group on FOBTs last week, machine manufacturers told MPs and campaigners that the changes could be made within months.Speaking at the all-party parliamentary group on FOBTs last week, Labour MP Carolyn Harris said: “It is now clear that it is perfectly possible for the games manufactures to implement the £2 stake reduction in the very near future.”A spokesman for the Association of British Bookmakers said: “Recent announcements by major operators reveal the true impact of this decision, that thousands of betting shops will close and there will be thousands of job losses. Betting shops are now focused on the future of their staff, customers and suppliers.”The Department for Digital Culture, Media and Sport, which is overseeing the legislation, has estimated that bookmakers stand to lose up to £540m per year between them once the change takes effect.

Who can forget P V Sindhu’s epic performance in the World Championship Finals in Glasgow? Srikanth became the first Indian to win back to back Super Series titles and achieved an all-time career-high, No 2 BWF Ranking.Recapitulating the year gone by, it can be said with certitude that 2017 was a great year for SportzConsult as well. The versatile sports management and consultant company worked with some of the biggest brands and leagues in the country (Star Sports, Reliance Foundation Youth Sports, Tata Tea, TI Cycles, Nestle Milo, Mattel Hot Wheels, Mattel Scrabble, Axis Bank, Nike, BBC Sports, Golds Gym etc.) Earlier this year, SportzConsult helped Reliance Foundation Jr. NBA set Guinness World Records Title with over three thousand kids participating in the largest basketball lesson.Established in 2003, SportzConsult facilitated playing opportunities for over four million Indians in 2017 (including young kids, youth, adults, and corporate executives). This year, the team won three awards at WOW Asia including a Gold for RF. NBA Jr. program. Applause and accolades continued for the squad at SportzConsult when they received three more Awards at Exchange4Media BW Applause Awards, including a gold for Rajasthan Government’s Women Empowerment Project.Jitendra Joshi, the Co-founder and Director at SportzConsult was conferred with the prestigious Public Relations Council of India’s ‘Entrepreneur of The Year’ award for SportzConsult’s phenomenal contribution towards grassroots sports development in India. SportzConsult’s core competency lies in consulting and connecting the dots – be it connecting the brand managers with their Bull’s Eye TG or be it connecting the dots when it comes to leagues and massive grassroots sports development programs.Speaking to InsideSports, Jitendra Joshi (Jitu) appeared to be visibly euphoric as he proudly stated “We worked with marquee brands and leagues this year and ensured we carry the brands to a different league and made strong brands out of the leagues we handled. We end the year on a high!! SportzConsult bags mandate for venue management operations for Vodafone Premier Badminton League 2017. Today, regarded as India’s No.1 grassroots sports development company, we have been assigned the Delhi and Lucknow chapters for this edition of Vodafone PBL. We believe in creating great sports experiences and therefore preparations are in full swing. The team is excited and geared up.”It was a busy year for SportzConsult on various counts. In January, the company released the first ever White Paper on ‘Experiential Sports Marketing’. The aim was to help brand managers looking to gain a competitive edge by developing a positive brand image among its target audience. In May, “Leaderonomics” a Malaysia-based business magazine which focusses on developing leaders, published Jitu’s article on Sports Parenting titled “Parents kill child’s source of happiness”.Sports Fraternity and key stakeholders valued ‘Our View Point’ on “A Practical Approach towards building A Sporty Nation” and it has been discussed in detail at forums organised by ET NOW, CII, IISM, ISB, India Sports Forum, Indian Football Forum and PRCI.Jitu further emphasized on the fact that SportzConsult is thankful to all those clients who gave it an opportunity to partner with them, broaden the core team’s horizons, learn through these projects, sharpen the focus and enhance the expertise.“We look forward to another exciting year ahead, and wish everyone ‘health, happiness and holistic growth all through 2018’. The new year is synonymous with New Year Resolutions… We don’t have any new resolutions for the year… We will keep working relentlessly towards our credo of making India a sporty nation!!” quipped Joshi who believes strongly in the doctrine of Karma.

Postponed: The Olympic logo at the new National Stadium built for the Tokyo Games (Getty Images) The Tokyo Games will take place over the same period as the Test series in South Africa New @Tokyo2020 olympic dates now published. Will be interesting to see if it effects SA team and prep for Tokyo or Lions tour depending on their priority. They had three full springbok caps in Rio squad (De Jongh, Hougaard and Kolbe) plus the then soon to be capped Kwagga Smith.— Ben Ryan (@benjaminryan) March 30, 2020 New Olympic dates clash with Lions tourThe IOC has confirmed that the Tokyo Olympic Games will now take place from Friday 23 July to Sunday 8 August 2021.The Games had been due to take place this summer but were postponed last week because of the coronavirus pandemic. Now the Olympics will clash with the British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa and specifically the team’s Test series against the world champions.In charge: Warren Gatland is Lions head coach for a third time (Getty Images)Warren Gatland’s side play their first tour match on Saturday 3 July against the Stormers – three weeks before the Olympics starts. However, all three Test matches against the Springboks will take place at the same time as the Olympics is on – 24 and 31 July and 7 August.The fact the events are taking place in different time zones is likely to minimise any clash in broadcast schedules, but there are other issues to consider.One is selection. Any 15s players from South Africa or the home nations who were contemplating switching to sevens for Tokyo 2020 will now have to decide whether they want to play in a Lions series or an Olympics because they won’t be able to do both.On the attack: Cheslin Kolbe breaks in the World Cup final (Getty Images)Mark Bennett and James Davies switched from 15s to sevens to be part of Team GB’s silver medal-winning sevens squad in 2016, for instance, although both would be long shots for Lions 2021 selection.SA Rugby magazine reports that Springboks Cheslin Kolbe and Kwagga Smith were planning to make themselves available for selection for the Blitzboks for the Games, but may now have to rethink things. After all, a Lions tour to South Africa happens only once every 12 years. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS There may be supporters who had booked to go to the Olympics and on the Lions tour, too, so they will have to decide which event to experience live.Another issue is sponsors. The Lions is a huge commercial entity but sponsorship deals could be affected now the tour is in competition with the Olympics, particularly as it also overlaps with the rescheduled Euro 2020 football tournament (11 June to 11 July 2021).With three huge events competing for media coverage, it could impact the value of sponsorship deals.The women’s game could be even more affected by the new Olympic dates, where there is far more crossover between sevens and 15s.Fast show: Portia Woodman in action for the Black Ferns Sevens (Getty Images)Keira Bevan, for example, is in the Team GB training squad but is also Wales’ first-choice scrum-half. Portia Woodman was the top try-scorer at RWC 2017 with 13 but is also a star performer for the Black Ferns Sevens.Next year’s World Cup kicks off on 18 September in New Zealand – only a six-week turnaround from the Olympics, which could make it hard for players to compete in both events given the time it can take to adapt between the two codes.Players face some tough decisions over the next year.last_img read more

The dwelling house is part of the design plan Mühle, which primarily aims to preserve the protected mill and the surroundings of the mill. On the south side the building group will be completed with the replacement building for the burnt-down barn, giving it the necessary spatial and historically justified importance. The result is an attractive place of a pleasant size, usable for various activities. Since the houses on the Sternenbergstrasse, which are also part of the design plan, are at a reasonable distance and clearly distinguished in the architectural formulation, the legibility of the historical ensemble is strengthened. Save this picture!© Börje MüllerThe four duplex apartments are all directly accessible from the mill court. The innovative apartment disposition with controlled spatial overlaps and nestings allows all residents to use the spacious and spatially exciting attic (vertical orientation) and on the ground and upper floor two apartment widths (horizontal orientation). The result is a surprising combination of the advantages of duplex and storey apartments. The half-storey concept allows a precise building placement in the slope and creates exciting spatial sequences. Two apartments are equipped with garden seating, two apartments are enjoying the private outdoor space in form of loggias. Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!ElevationThanks to a clever lighting control no openings in the roof were necessary. The external appearance with vertical wooden slats, solid base and tiled roof points to the original use, but converts the theme of the barn in a contemporary form. Sustainability in terms of resource use is given by the careful handling of space and size, as well as the use of raw materials and the equipment with environmentally friendly pellet heating, which is also used for hot water production.Save this picture!© Börje MüllerProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Dobra / Anna ThurowSelected ProjectsHouse in Silverstrand / Millimeter Interior DesignSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Conversion Mill Barn / Beck + Oser ArchitektenSave this projectSaveConversion Mill Barn / Beck + Oser Architektencenter_img Switzerland Year:  “COPY” Photographs:  Börje Müller Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  550 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Architects: Beck + Oser Architekten Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Börje Müller+ 18 Share CopyAbout this officeBeck + Oser ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentHofstetten-FlühSwitzerlandPublished on May 06, 2017Cite: “Conversion Mill Barn / Beck + Oser Architekten” 05 May 2017.

Founder Dan Dempsey thinks it might take up to around 25 swaps to achieve this over around 180 days.He started with a small silver bar worth about £10 and has already progressed to a Mazda MX-5 sports car via a Mondeo.People can make offers to swap; after Dempsey receives 10 offers he chooses the best one. He aims to move up to items, such as a boat, a larger boat, a house, a house in a more valuable area, and so on, perhaps to several smaller houses. It all depends on what he is offered. Advertisement Familiar idea?If you think you have come across this before, you might be thinking of Kyle McDonald and his One Red Paper Clip idea, which he eventually traded up to a house. This was for his benefit rather than a charity, but Dempsey plans to use it, improve on it and raise funds for charity.Dempsey’s Swap2aMillion model includes incentives: he is offering £10,000 for each person with whom he successfully swaps, plus a sum to be shared between those who successfully promote his initiative. (Disclosure: UK Fundraising has signed up to take part in this). Of course, the sums are payable depending on how much he actually raises. If he doesn’t reach the £1 million sum, he will share the same percentage that he planned, but that would of course involve a smaller amount per person.The site has just secured sponsorship from The Swap Room.UK Fundraising spoke to Dempsey yesterday to find out more.
