Bleak data from the US, with jobless claims at a nine-month high and the first contraction in a year in a volatile regional manufacturing index, has made the markets more jittery. “The latest data out of the US sparked a flight to quality by reviving fears of a double-dip recession, with investors seeking refuge into safer government debt,” Louis Capital analyst Bertrand Michaud said.Like others, he suggested markets would be waiting for the end of the northern hemisphere’s summer to get a clearer picture on where the world’s economy and markets were heading.World stocks were down more than half a per cent on the day, according to Thomson Reuters data.The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 was down 0.5 per cent.

Optimove iGaming Pulse – June 2020

first_img Optimove iGaming Pulse – June 2020 Casino & games 7th July 2020 | By Joanne Christie Email Address In June the key metrics returned to pre-Covid-19 levels, which is good news for the industry. Now is an ideal time for operators to implement best practice-based methodologies to reap the benefits of their new and existing players In June the key metrics returned to pre-Covid-19 levels, which is good news for the industry. But rather than simply celebrate things getting back to normal, now is an ideal time to implement best practice-based methodologies to reap the benefits of your new and existing players.One way of doing this is by sending out cross-selling offers to players with single product preferences. This will increase the likelihood of players becoming and remaining active.Sports KPIsAverage deposit amount The average deposit amount decreased slightly by 3% month-on-month, but increased by 13% year-on-year, to €35 per player.Though we haven’t have any major sporting events such as the World Cup or the Euros this year, sports betting numbers were still higher than last year.Monthly deposits Monthly deposits for sports bettors were almost the same as they were in May, increasing by 1% month-on-month and 11% year-on-year in June.Monthly revenue per player The average revenue per active player during June decreased by 2% month-on-month but increased by 17% year-on-year to €95 per player.All of the above KPIs support the fact that numbers were higher last month than during the same month last year. This could be due to the pandemic, as some players are still social distancing or going out less, which allows more time to play online.Retention rates After a sharp decrease in retention rates in April, there’s been an upward trend evident since May. Last month the retention rate for sports bettors increased by 10% month-on-month and by 18% year-on-year.Conversion rates Conversion rates increased by 7% month-on-month and by 26% year-on-year in June.Now that most major sporting events have returned, it could be a good time to cross-sell your players into casino games. We wrote recently about campaign ideas on how to cross-sell successfully.Casino KPIsAverage deposit amount The average deposit amount remained the same for casino players both month-on-month and year-on-year, sticking at €33.Monthly deposit per player The average number of monthly deposits per player during June decreased by 2% month-on-month but increased by 7% year-on-year to  9.2 deposits per player.Retention rates Last month saw an increase in retention rates, which rose by 2% month-on-month and 14% year-on-year.Conversion rates Conversion rates increased last month, by a relatively modest 3% month-on-month but by a massive 37% year-on-year.Mobile bettors ratio As we mentioned in last month’s report, there has been an increase in mobile bettors since last year as more gaming operators are offering casino games that are available to play on the go.Though we did see a small decrease of 3% month-on-month in June, there was a significant 33% year-on-year increase to 57%. That means that more than half of all casino players now play on mobile devices.We might have expected to see a decrease in mobile bettors since the beginning of the pandemic as players at home have access to desktop games. However, it’s clear they still prefer playing on mobile.For this reason, it might be worthwhile trying to cross-sell players from web to mobile, as mobile games usually generate higher revenue.About iGaming Pulse:iGaming Pulse is an industry benchmark tool for the gaming sector. iGaming Pulse enables gaming operators to accurately assess their overall performance against industry-wide key performance indicators.Its figures are updated on a monthly basis.

For much of this time, my investment has been under water. Mercifully, that’s now changed.Horizonte’s share price is up a little over 50% in the last month alone. Had you picked up the shares back in the dark days of March, you’d already be sitting on a gain of around 240%.Aside from the bounce seen in markets generally, the reason for the price charge is down to Horizonte getting ready to build its Araguaia ferro-nickel mine in Brazil. This is one of two Tier 1 projects that, importantly, are 100% owned by the company.Show me the money!Earlier this month, Horizonte announced that it had mandated five international financial institutions to raise up to $325m in debt to part-fund the Araguaia build. Coronavirus-dependent, this should be done by the end of 2020. The remainder of the money needed ($125m) will then come from offtakes and a likely equity raise. Should things go swimmingly (and existing holders aren’t massively diluted), I can see the small-cap’s shares being worth multiples of their current value in a few years. This is assuming, of course, that Horizonte isn’t acquired beforehand. With few nickel-focused assets so close to production, it must surely be on the radars of the usual (mining) suspects.Nickel price playA takeover becomes even more likely if the price of nickel keeps rising. Thanks to growing demand from the EV battery sector and stainless steel market, there’s certainly a chance it could hit the $16,133/t analyst consensus for when Araguaia is ready to roll.The ‘Tesla-effect’ can’t be discounted either. Let’s not forget that Elon Musk recently urged miners to dig up as much nickel as they could, adding that Tesla would award a “giant contract for a long period of time” to the company that does so in an efficient and environmentally friendly way. This is where Horizonte’s second Tier 1 asset — Vermelho — comes into play. Before you buy this small-cap…But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Despite recent progress (and a £15.6m cash position), Horizonte remains a high-risk proposition. Plenty of miners come a cropper on funding and the small-cap could still rip the shirt from your back.Even if all the funding is secured, there will be traders ready to bank profits. This ‘sell on the news’ strategy means those intending to hold for the long term should brace themselves for volatility.It also makes it essential for them to be diversified elsewhere (as I am) and not bet the house (which I haven’t). Like all investments, your exposure should take into account your financial goals, age and risk tolerance. If your stake keeps you awake at night, you’re probably doing it wrong. All caution (and bias) aside, however, there’s a chance the reward might be worth the wait.

Purdue Expert Offers Advice for Last-minute Crop Insurance Decisions

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Expert Offers Advice for Last-minute Crop Insurance Decisions Purdue Expert Offers Advice for Last-minute Crop Insurance Decisions SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 11, 2014 Previous articlePork Checkoff Designates More Funds for Stemming PEDV SpreadNext articleTime to Submit National Anthem Videos for Third FMC Contest Andy Eubank With the March 17 crop insurance enrollment deadline looming, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist has some advice for producers who have yet to finalize their decisions.About 80 percent of Indiana’s corn and soybean growers purchase crop insurance each year to protect their farms from the financial hardships of significant revenue or yield losses. But choosing the type of insurance and levels of coverage for each farm can be tricky because of the several options available.“There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to crop insurance policies,” said Michael Langemeier, who also serves as associate director for Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture. “It really depends on the individual farm situation.”There are two major categories of crop insurance policies: revenue protection and yield protection. Revenue policies protect farmers against loss from low yields, low prices or a combination of the two. Yield protection policies insure against yield losses. Both offer coverage levels ranging from 50 to 85 percent, with premiums increasing alongside coverage levels.Under each of those categories, a producer can select an area risk plan, which is based on county yields, or an individual plan, which is based on the production history of the individual farm.“I think growers really need to think about the revenue guarantee itself and ask themselves what they can afford to lose,” Langemeier said. “If an individual farm can withstand some loss, that farm might need a little bit less coverage. But if a farm can’t withstand much loss or the cash flow is tight, that farm probably needs more coverage.“It all comes down to how much coverage you need to be able to sleep at night.”Part of the decision also depends on the production history of each farm. If a farm has lower-yielding soils than the rest of the county, it might make sense to look at an area risk plan, Langemeier said.For growers who haven’t already done so, Langemeier said it’s a good idea to discuss crop insurance options with landlords to coordinate their decisions.“Farm operators are in a lot of different arrangements, and some of those landlords depend on that rental income,” he said. “If prices or yields were to fall, could the landlord afford that drop? There are a lot of retired or semi-retired farmers serving as landlords.”Another consideration when deciding between yield and revenue policies is the current market environment. In a more stable price environment, yield policies might make sense, but when prices are uncertain, revenue protection policies might be the better option.“We’ve been in an environment since 2007 that has been best suited for farmers to look at revenue protection over yield protection,” Langemeier said.Finally, growers need to assess their debt positions versus their liquidity. Langemeier noted that farms with a lot of debt can’t afford much loss, which means they need a higher level of coverage than a farm that can afford to take a small financial hit.But by the same token, farms in good financial standing need to protect that position.“It is so important to protect a farm’s liquidity,” Langemeier said. “That needs to be taken into account when choosing crop insurance because you don’t want to see that liquidity deteriorate because yields or prices drop.”Purdue Extension has resources available to farmers still trying to make their crop insurance decisions ahead of the deadline. Langemeier has two papers available for free download on the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture website:* “Comparison of Crop Insurance Products“* “Crop Insurance Guarantees“The center also has a free, archived webinar titled “2014 Crop Insurance Decisions,” also available on the website. In addition to Langemeier’s discussion of 2014 crop insurance, the webinar includes a talk from Purdue Extension agricultural economist Roman Keeney about ways the new farm bill could affect crop insurance decisions in the future.Source: Purdue Ag Communicationslast_img read more

China Not Correcting Actions That Led to Tariffs

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News China Not Correcting Actions That Led to Tariffs China Not Correcting Actions That Led to Tariffs SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer says China hasn’t taken action to correct the practices that led to American tariffs on Chinese imports. The tariffs are currently in place on $250 billion in goods. The trade chief made the announcement at the same time his agency released a 53-page update to its report on its own investigation into China’s intellectual trade practices. “We completed this update as part of the administration’s stronger monitoring and enforcement effort,” Lighthizer says. “The update shows that China hasn’t altered its unfair, market-distorting practices that were the focus of the report in March of this year on our Section 301 investigation.”The announcement from Lighthizer comes just ten days before a face-to-face meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Buenos Aires during the G20 summit. The South China Morning Post website says the discussions could either pause the trade dispute between the two largest economies in the world or it could potentially lead to further escalation.As it relates to steel and aluminum tariffs, both the United States and opponents of tariffs put in place by President Donald Trump confirmed they want to take their disputes to the World Trade Organization. Those confirmations kickstarted the procedure for the WTO to set up dispute hearings. China, the European Union, Canada, Mexico, Russia, and Norway all confirmed that they will take their disputes to adjudication proceedings. The Unites States also confirmed it wants dispute panels set up for trade disagreements with Canada, China, and the EU.Reuters quotes a U.S. trade official as saying, “The United States cannot abide this level of hypocrisy.” That was in response to each challenge to the steel and aluminum tariffs at the center of the trade disputes. Trump first put the tariffs in place by saying they were a national security issue, and as such are exempt from WTO rules. The other countries don’t agree, calling the tariffs thinly-veiled protectionism that has damaged U.S. rivals globally. They want the U.S. to compensate them for damages and imposed their own tariffs in response. WTO dispute panels are set up to settle disputes as peacefully as possible by encouraging each country to bring their policies in line with WTO rules, rather than litigating.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Nov 22, 2018 Previous articleNo Farm Bill Yet, Plenty of CommentsNext articleHow You Can Use Manure as Part of Your Soil Health Strategy NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Authorities say homeless intruder murdered Gerasimenko

first_img RSF_en Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Receive email alerts BelarusEurope – Central Asia News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders said today it was baffled by an announcement by the Russian authorities on 1 August that a 39-year-old homeless man, who they did not name, has been accused of last week’s murder of reporter Yevgeny Gerasimenko of the regional weekly Saratovski Rasklad.Describing the case as “closed,” the Internal Affairs Department (GUVD) said the suspect entered Gerasimenko’s apartment through the first-floor kitchen window, fought with him, managed to tie him to a chair, suffocated him by putting a plastic bag over his head and then robbed the apartment. The intruder committed the murder “in order to steal the victim’s personal items,” the GUVD said.Reporters Without Borders said: “We call on the Internal Affairs Department to restart the investigation from scratch. We are astounded that investigators lost no time in ruling out the possibility that Gerasimenko was killed because of his work as a journalist, especially as his computer was taken.”Gerasimenko covered music and sport for his newspaper.————-27 July 2006Reporters Without Borders deeply shocked at murder of journalistчитать на русскомReporters Without Borders said today it was “deeply shocked” at the murder of Yevgeny Gerasimenko, of the regional weekly Saratovski Rasklad, whose body was found at his apartment yesterday by his mother, and called on the authorities to thoroughly investigate his death, which it said was probably linked to his work.“This has happened just a few days after the end of the G8 summit meeting that Russia chaired in St. Petersburg,” the international press freedom organisation said. “None of the world leaders attending publicly mentioned Russia’s ever-worsening press freedom. At least 13 journalists have been killed in the country because of their work since 2000 and none of the cases has been solved by the authorities.” Gerasimenko was a sports and music reporter on the paper, in Saratov (southeast of Moscow), but also did investigative reporting. Colleagues said he had been looking into local corruption and the activities of firms in the region and was about report on this in the next issue of the paper on 1 August. He was found with a plastic bag on his head and had been tortured. His computer was missing, which suggested, along with other evidence, that he was killed for his work. The regional prosecutor’s office has begun an enquiry under article 105 of the criminal code.Reporters Without Borders expresses condolences to his family and colleagues.

Lasantha Wickrematunge’s widow and fellow editor Sonali Samarasinghe’s statement, on his second death anniversary

first_img Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge July 15, 2020 Find out more Meanwhile President Rajapakse’s priorities are now to attract foreign investment and increase trade while defending his army and his political family against allegations of war crimes.He continues to use his large majority and the enormous powers vested in his administration to perpetuate authoritarianism and the culture of impunity while obliterating any remnants of a free media. I do sincerely believe that given time the war weary people of Sri Lanka will once again see the Rajapakse regime for what it really is – a self serving parasite on Sri Lanka’s escutcheon.However the danger is that over time even as the people come to this realization there will be no tolerance whatsoever for any kind of political uprising to restore sanity and true democracy as by that time the Rajapakse regime would have completely constitutionalised their authoritarianism and tyranny and militarized the entire system, and it is at these desperate times that bloody revolutions may again take place. This is what we must try to avoid and this is why the government must stretch out a sincere hand of hope to the war ravaged people of the north and restore immediately and with urgent attention the democratic institutions including a truly independent media in the country.

They tend to enjoy widespread support and are able to amass considerable power, even if known to be violating civil liberties and human rights. Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation Newscenter_img The danger for Sri Lanka’s people is that the subversion of democratic mechanisms and violence against democratic institutions continues unabated in a time of peace. And yet now the war has ended the international community will conveniently choose to see only an outer façade of peace.

Several other journalists have been attacked or otherwise threatened, resulting in their being forced to flee Sri Lanka. Yet others have been coerced into submission. At no time in the history of our country has the freedom of expression been so brutally been repressed as it is now. Such media as do operate in the country have been transformed into propaganda mouthpieces for the government, or into flaccid shells of their former integrity, bullied into submission through draconian pieces of legislation or emergency regulations. Sonali Samarasinghe Wickrematunge Lasantha Wickrematunge was a journalist who fought fearlessly for the freedom of the press and relentlessly pursued what he believed was right. It is a sad tribute to Sri Lanka’s growing indifference to democratic principles, justice ands fair play and the present regime’s strangle hold on the media and democratic institutions, that even 24 months after his murder there has been no conclusion to Lasantha’s murder investigation. Even as the so-called investigation fell apart, I wrote President Rajapakse a letter on April 24, 2009 and again on January 4, 2010 calling for an independent international inquiry into my husband’s death. I also wrote to then-Inspector General of Police Jayantha Wickremaratne requesting his cooperation. Yet no real progress has been made except to make his murder a speaking point of every election campaign in order to throw allegations at political oppnents.
