Most observers expect a two to four per cent figure, to bring ratios up to nine to 11 per cent, but Turner’s remarks suggest that a higher number is possible. He said yesterday that imposing a surcharge was “a key policy objective” for this year.His thoughts will cause alarm for some banks that are trying to balance building up their capital with delivering adequate returns.During Barclays’ annual results last month, for example, chief executive Bob Diamond presented a capital plan that assumes only a two per cent surcharge.

Spanish people back gambling sector, CEJUEGO study claims

first_img Topics: Legal & compliance Regions: Europe Southern Europe Spain More than nine out of 10 adults in Spain see gambling as a socially acceptable pastime according to a new report published by the country’s leading industry trade group. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Email Addresscenter_img Spanish people back gambling sector, CEJUEGO study claims More than nine out of 10 adults in Spain see gambling as a socially acceptable pastime according to a new report published by the country’s leading industry trade group.CEJUEGO’s ‘Gaming and Society’ report shows that 29 million people – 84.8% of people aged 18-75 years old – played one or several types of gambling products in 2018.According to 500 people surveyed as part of the study, some 92% see gaming as a leisure option, likening the money wagered to the price of a ticket for a show.Figures cited in the study show that the majority of players just took part in lottery games run by SELAE and ONCE. In total, 6.6 million people, or 19.4% of the population, visited a casino, bingo, or betting shop during the period covered.“Regarding the games managed by private operators, the analysis concludes that they attracted more restricted audiences of different generations, highlighting that their clients are divided into those who play out of curiosity and those who play as a hobby and because they offer them spaces to socialise with friends and acquaintances,” said a spokesperson for CEJUEGO, whose members include Cirsa, Codere and Grupo R. Franco.The study, carried out by the Institute of Politics and Governance at the Carlos III University of Madrid, found that 1.5 million people gambled online during the period, which is just 0.9% of the population.“This group shows dispersed behaviour patterns, from those who play stably to those who do it out of curiosity or who bet on an exciting game,” CEJUEGO said.“The behaviour of these users indicates that they have learned how to play online and rationalise their use – shorter sessions, moderate monthly spending or decreases in the playing of some games.”Spain remains among the countries with the lowest rates of problem gambling, according to the data. The problem gambling rate in Spain is at 0.3% and, according to CEJUEGO, “has not increased in recent years”.Data from the Ministry of Health, cited by CEJUEGO, shows there were 7,000 people who were diagnosed with a gambling addiction in 2018 – just 0.02% of adults.“Spain remains one of the five countries in the world with the lowest problem gambling rate, along with France, Germany, Sweden and Norway,” CEJUEGO said.The most common reasons for gambling were “the dream of the prize”, in particular for lottery players, and to “meet friends and acquaintances” at gambling venues such as bingo halls. To “demonstrate knowledge” and “compete against the house” were also reasons cited.“Having such a high rate of respondents, this study shows the true reflection of what is happening in the society, as opposed to certain information that is read or data that is heard from very small surveys and that make the information very unreliable,” said Alejandro Landaluce, managing director of CEJUEGO, in a statement released to iGamingBusiness.com.Earlier this month, Spanish gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) published its new three-year strategy, setting out plans to ensure the industry operates in a socially responsible manner while allowing licensees to develop innovative new products and services.With gambling advertising an increasingly contentious issue in Spain, the DGOJ has also pledged to tightly monitor advertising by licensees.The Spanish online gambling market continues to grow in terms of revenue, with DGOJ figures showing a 20.1% year-on-year increase in revenue for the first quarter of the year.Gross gaming revenue for the three months to March 31, 2019 amounted to €193.3m (£171.3m/$217.6m), up from €163.3m in the same period last year and an increase of 2.14% on €189.2m posted in the final quarter of 2018.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address We all dream of becoming a millionaire. Many of us believe the chances of this actually happening though are slim to none. It’s why the The National Lottery continues to attract a legion of loyal players more than 25 years after the balls were first set rolling. These players reckon that that blind luck provides the best chance for them to make million.It’s true that The National Lottery has enabled more than 5,500 players to make a million (or more) since 1994. However, for every one person that’s won big, there are tens of thousands who’ve little to show for their spending.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…Remember that chance of successfully guessing the six numbers on the National Lottery’s bog-standard Lotto game stands at a wildly-improbable one in 45,057,474. But these odds seem positively generous compared with what aspiring millionaires can expect by scooping the top prize with the EuroMillions game. The odds of winning here sit at a jaw-dropping one in 139,838,160.A better way to make a millionThe purpose of playing the lottery is, of course, to make money. It should never be treated as anything more than a bit of fun though.If you’re serious about wanting to make a million you’d be better off investing in UK shares. Just ask any one of the growing number of millionaires who’ve made a fortune by putting their money into a Stocks and Shares ISA.The number of people getting rich through stock investment is rising because more and more are using these tax-efficient vehicles instead of parking their money in low-yielding products like cash accounts.Even if you don’t manage to become a millionaire through stock investing, you’re still more likely to have something to show for your money over the long run by buying UK shares than you are by shelling out on lottery tickets each and every week.Say you buy 10 lines each week to play the Lotto game at £2 a pop. If you’d invested that money in a Stocks and Shares ISA, you’ll likely have made a return of at least £122k over the space of 30 years. I’d much rather have that in my pocket to retire on than having spent tens of  thousands of pounds in an impracticable attempt to try and make a million.Buy cheap UK sharesShare investors have had to endure a rocky ride in 2020. And there might be more choppiness in the near term as the economic consequences of Covid-19 play out. Still, I reckon the recent stock market crash provides a great opportunity for share pickers to become millionaires.The sharp selloff that spanned late February to early March has left many great-looking shares trading at rock-bottom prices. It’s a phenomenon that allows investors to buy in at low prices with a great chance of selling later on at much, much higher levels as economic conditions improve and corporate earnings rise.And there’s a wealth of information out there to help you try and make that million with UK shares.

Clermont basking in glory after beating Perpignan to win the Top 14

first_imgMonday May 31, 2010 Clermont basking in glory after beating Perpignan to win the Top 14 Clermont Auvergne supporters have been celebrating their famous win since the final whistle blew on Saturday night as they won the Top 14 title on their 11th attempt when they beat Perpignan 19-6 at the Stade de France.Known as perennial chokers, Clermont finally came good on all their promise as a repeat of last seasons final ended the other way around, with the club from central France repaying the faith of their supporters eventually.Clermonts kiwi coach Vern Cotter was visibly emotional at fulltime as his side finally got it right. “A good night! The players deserve that,” he said afterwards.Captain Aurelien Rougerie, who got stuck in all game, said they were extremely happy with themselves after all the hard work that has gone into the campaign.“This squad really has a soul, a character. I’m very happy for us, this squad and obviously all the people who waited so long for this.”The only try on the night was scored by powerful winger Napolioni Nalaga, in somewhat of a different fashion to what were used to seeing from him. He hasnt had things go all his way on the wing of late though, so his effort from close to the line showed his value around the park.Morgan Parra kicked the conversion, as well as three penalties, while Anthony Floch slotted a neatly taken dropgoal. Things may have been different if Perpignan fullback Jerome Porical had kicked better, but he missed four of his shots at goal.This video shows the try, as well as one or two other moments from the game.

New Zealand win the Hong Kong Sevens

first_imgTuesday Mar 29, 2011 New Zealand win the Hong Kong Sevens New Zealand became kings of Hong Kong on Sunday as they beat England 29-17 in the Cup final at Hong Kong Stadium in the IRB World Series Sevens. This video shows their progress to the final, as well as one or two other nice tries.The tournament proved to be a success once again as rugby, drinking, music, and dancing were all on the menu, not to mention fancy-dress. Capacity crowds of 40 000 people over the three days enjoyed the best of the international rugby circuit, with a few surprise packages.In the end it was New Zealand who marched through to the final after some closely contested games, with their semi-final against Fiji particularly tricky. In the final they faced England who had beaten reigning champs Samoa in their semi.The New Zealand team led by seven points at half time and from then on, they were too good as their speed and fitness showed in some extraordinarily long passages of open field play. The win has them now sitting pretty at the top of the World Series table, five points clear of England.“Sevens is what is going to open rugby up to the world,” said Jonah Lomu.“It is going to go right through Asia, because it is a more level playing field than playing 15-a-side. Trying to explain to somebody the appeal of the sport, I would say come to the Sevens. You have the fastest players on the planet and the strongest players on the planet.”The series moves to Adelaide next weekend, before moving to England and Scotland in May.

Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust launches

first_img The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust has been formally launched today, on the 60th anniversary of the accession of the Queen to the throne.Sir John Major, chair of the trustees of the grantmaking trust, said that it aims to “to raise funds throughout the Commonwealth, and then work with strategic partners to identify charitable projects that will enrich the lives and opportunities of all its citizens” in order “to provide a lasting legacy for HM The Queen”. Donations will be accepted for the duration of the Jubilee Year. Online donations are being handled by BT MyDonate.The trust, first announced at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Perth, Australia in 2011, hopes that it will receive donations from across the Commonwealth as a way of honouring the Queen and her work.In particular the trust will invest in some projects which encourage generations to work together for the benefit of communities, and activities that bring Commonwealth citizens together across geographical boundaries.The Commonwealth Secretary General, Kamalesh Sharma, also on the board of Trustees, said: “The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust is an opportunity for Commonwealth citizens everywhere both to contribute and to be associated with initiatives that will ensure Her Majesty’s commitment and service are celebrated in ways that are to the enduring benefit of our global Commonwealth family.”Details about the trust’s planned investments and partnerships are not available at this stage but likely areas include tackling curable diseases, promoting all forms of education and culture and other Commonwealth priorities.

Tennessee hospital won’t charge tornado victims medical fees

first_imgiStock(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — A Tennessee hospital won’t charge any medical fees for the dozens of patients who were affected by last week’s deadly tornadoes.A spokeswoman for Cookeville Regional Medical Center told ABC News 82 people were treated for injuries after Tuesday’s storms that ripped through Nashville and other central Tennessee counties. The hospital will bill each patient’s insurance company and accept the insurance’s payment as payment in full, according to Melahn Finley, a spokeswoman for Cookeville Regional Medical Center.“We will not bill patients for the remaining portion after insurance,” she said in a statement. “If they don’t have insurance, they will not be charged.”At least 24 people have been killed by the tornadoes that struck Nashville and the surrounding areas in the early morning hours on Tuesday. Eighteen of those reported fatalities took place in Putnam County, where the National Weather Service said an EF4 tornado, with top winds of 175 mph, struck.Nashville Mayor John Cooper said Thursday officials were still surveying the damage and there were at least 385 residential properties and 184 commercial buildings that sustained “major damage or were completely destroyed.”As of Saturday evening, 9,700 households remain without power in Tennessee, the majority of which are located in Davidson County, according to the Tennessee governor’s office.
