The firm reported pre-tax profit of £762,500, up from £600,600 last year. Turnover was £11.4m after shifting 26,000 bikes. However, currency fluctuations and a hike in the cost of materials were behind a fall in its profit margins. center_img Sunday 10 October 2010 11:02 pm Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoHistorical GeniusHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeHistorical GeniusUndo KCS-content Bike-maker Brompton’s profits up Tags: NULLlast_img read more

RSPH calls on consumers to take igaming break

first_img Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland 30th August 2019 | By contenteditor RSPH calls on consumers to take igaming break The UK’s Royal Society for Public Health’s (RSPH) will encourage people to take a break from online gambling as part of its second annual ‘Scroll Free September’ initiative next month.Scroll Free September primarily focuses on promoting the benefits of consumers reducing their social media usage for one month. This year it will also encourage people to cut down on time spent gambling online, with support from GambleAware and its own Bet Regret campaign.Online gamblers that opt to join in can self-exclude through one of five plans: taking a break in or at work, in the bedroom, at social events, each evening or give it up completely for 30 days.“Following the success of Scroll Free September last year, we are delighted to offer participants in this year’s campaign the opportunity to self-exclude from online gambling,” RSPH chief executive, Shirley Cramer, said.“This paves an important step toward tackling gambling harm, by encouraging the public to take some time to reflect this September on their online behaviour and consider their actions, before making any decisions they may later regret.”The move comes as the RSPH prepares to launch the Gambling Health Alliance in October. This will consist of organisations concerned with the prevention and treatment of gamblingharms.The Alliance will look to ensure gambling, and the harms that may arise, are placed on an equal footing with other major UK public health challenges, with a focus on prevention, early intervention and increased community engagement.“Better understanding is needed of the harms arising from gambling, who is affected and what support can be provided to prevent harms from developing or escalating in the first place,” Cramer said.“Along with the establishment of the Gambling Health Alliance, by asking the public to use Scroll Free September as an opportunity to abstain from online gambling, we hope to place gambling harm further at the forefront of public health thinking and as a serious threat to our public’s health in its own right.”Marc Etches, chief executive of GambleAware, added: “We all need to take a break from our phones every now and again, particularly now that gambling is accessible anytime and anywhere.“We’re pleased to be supporting Scroll Free September and hope it will inspire people to take a moment to think about their betting habits.”Earlier this month, GambleAware launched the second wave of activity for its Bet Regret safer gambling campaign, with support from GVC Holdings.The second phase of the initiative updates the tagline to “Think Twice or You’ll Bet Regret it”, while remaining focused on a target audience estimated at 2.4m young men aged 16-34 who gamble regularly on sport. The UK’s Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) will encourage people to take a break from online gambling as part of its second annual ‘Scroll Free September’ initiative next month.

This is what I’d do right now about the Cineworld share price

first_imgThis is what I’d do right now about the Cineworld share price Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Amazon and Netflix and recommends the following options: long January 2022 $1920 calls on Amazon and short January 2022 $1940 calls on Amazon. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. UK share prices have been on a bumpy ride over the past 12 months. And the Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) share price has been on a particularly wild ride. Having slumped to record troughs below 25p per share last March, the leisure giant has rebounded strongly. It was last trading four times more expensively than it was during those troughs above 100p.Despite this recovery, though, the Cineworld share price is still off the 200p it traded at at the start of 2020. Does the cinema chain still offer plenty of upside for long-term UK share investors then?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…Looking on the bright sideThere are several reasons to be optimistic about Cineworld’s share price. These include:#1: A successful vaccine rollout. Cineworld’s share price began to take off last autumn when positive testing news surrounding Covid-19 vaccines emerged. This supercharged hopes that the chain would be able to reopen its theatres to the public in early-to-mid 2021. Optimism has continued to grow thanks to successful vaccination programmes in Cineworld’s core US and UK marketplaces. Half-glass-full investors believe cinema-goers will flock back to the box office in droves after being released from lockdowns.#2: US stimulus package to boost bookings. This UK share has only recently entered the US market. But through its Regal theatres, the group generates the lion’s share of profits from its Stateside territory (around 75% by my calculations). The US economy is recovering strongly from the Covid-19 crisis, which naturally translates into better spending power for the American public. And the amount US citizens have to spend on leisure trips and other comforts is likely to receive an extra boost following the passing of a $1.9trn stimulus package earlier this week.Dangers to Cineworld’s share priceThat being said, there are several reasons I think the Cineworld share price could struggle to get back to its pre-pandemic heights, such as:#1: The threat of the streaming giants. The emergence of video-on-demand services from the likes of Amazon and Netflix has been steadily chipping away at the cinema operators over the past decade. It’s possible that Covid-19 has significantly changed the way we watch movies for good. It might be harder to pull people off their couches than some imagine.#2: Changes to the studio model. Recent shifts in the way studios release movies — changes which allow new films to be released on streaming platforms shortly after or even at the same time as in theatres — seriously undermine one of Cineworld’s biggest selling points: they are no longer the only place (piracy aside) to watch freshly-released movies.The verdictSuccessful vaccine rollouts mean there is clearly light at the end of the tunnel for UK leisure shares like Cineworld. But big threats still remain for the company to tackle. In the short term I’m particularly concerned about how full its cinemas will be packed out when its doors are flung open again. Don’t forget that the business still has colossal amounts of debt to pay down (the interest payments alone are eye-watering).

Amazon Associates offers more ways to generate income from web content

first_img Tagged with: Digital AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis As Amazon explains, “Context Links are for people looking for an easy way to generate money from the content they write”. The company suggests that “bloggers, review sites, and people that have archived pages that are currently not monetised are excellent candidates for Context Links”. To create Context Links you simply embed one piece of code on your pages. You can choose to enable the preview functionality to let your site visitors see a preview of an Amazon.co.uk product relevant to the phrase selected. Clicking on the link will send your site visitors to the product detail page on Amazon.co.uk, and you will earn referral fees for any sales generated.Amazon describe the second new tool, Product Previews, as “a portal into Amazon.co.uk – directly on your Web site”.When a user hovers over a preview-enhanced text or image link, a small window appears containing information about the product you’re advertising, including an image, new and used price, average customer review and availability. These links give site visitors more information about the Amazon product but without taking up space on your site. One particularly useful element of Product Previews is that it gives your visitors the ability to add the item directly to their shopping cart, keeping visitors on your site until they are ready to buy.UK Fundraising is testing these two tools across the site so you should start to spot them as you explore the site.The pop-ups only work if you have Javascript enabled and have disabled any pop-up blockers you might use. Here is an example using a text link but you could use a graphic link too:Here’s a book linkIf you haven’t started earning income from your website as an Amazon Associate, you can sign up at no charge. Amazon.co.uk now pays commission monthly in arrears directly into the nominated bank account. Howard Lake | 6 June 2007 | News Amazon Associates, the online bookseller’s affiliate programme for web publishers, has added two new tools to help associates generate more income from their websites. Context Links and Product Previews offer simple ways of adding relevant items for sale on associates’ websites and a pop-up preview of the item available.Charities that use the Amazon Associates service to earn income by selling books, CDs, and other items on their website now have two more tools to generate more income using the free system.Context Links will automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your web pages to Amazon products. You no longer need to spend time creating links manually, and this of course expands the inventory of items you can earn income from. It takes just minutes to add the links into your pages, and Amazon offers a range of options to customise how they are displayed.

Match funding encourages higher & more frequent giving, says report

first_img Melanie May | 15 August 2016 | News Deterministic match funds (in which donations are guaranteed to be matched) see the highest participation levels, but require substantial initial investment in terms of match funding. Match funding stimulates higher and more frequent giving, according to a report from Localgiving into how financial incentives encourage donations.Striking a Match: Incentivised Giving Report 2016 reveals the key results and learnings from a number of match fund campaigns run by Localgiving throughout 2015 as part of its Incentivised Giving Programme, which in 2015 raised £834,224 for 1,288 groups from 16,561 donors.Localgiving ran six match fund campaigns featuring a range of different incentives to encourage donations. These included 1:1 match funding, ‘randomised’ match funding (in which donations had a chance of being matched) and fundraiser competitions.The findings show that different incentives – ranging from match funding to competition prizes – can be used to engage supporters in charitable causes, as well as stimulate higher, more frequent donations.Using donation data and donor feedback, Striking a Match: Incentivised Giving Report 2016 looks at the impact of each campaign on the overall amount raised; charity and donor participation rates; donation size and frequency; donor sentiment and retention.Key findings:The vast majority of donor survey respondents see campaign incentives as a crucial factor in their decision to donate. In the February 2015 #GiveMe5 survey 83.4% of respondents said that match funding had influenced their decision “a lot” or was the “only reason” that they had donated.

This report compares and contrasts the six Incentivised Giving Campaigns we ran in 2015 – not only proving conclusively that match funding works as a concept, but also showing how different incentives can be used to achieve different outcomes.”The findings will be used to inform Localgiving’s future initiatives.  268 total views,  1 views today Advertisementcenter_img Tagged with: match funding Research / statistics About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Rec center app aims to make scheduling workouts easier
