William Hill said weaker gaming net revenue was offset by a strong sporting gross win margin.In terms of online international performance, the bookmaker described this as mixed, with net revenue likely to be broadly flat on a pro forma basis for the fourth quarter. According to William Hill, sportsbook net revenue was weak but a good performance in gaming was driven by Mr Green, acquired in 2019.William Hill’s retail business is expected to generate operating profit above the guidance range of between £50m and 70m. The bookmaker noted the impact of favourable sporting results in December, while gaming also performed ahead of expectations.In addition, William Hill said that its US business continued to perform well in Q4, driven by wagering growth and disciplined investment. Such has been the success of its US efforts that the bookmaker said the division should break even for 2019 beating a guidance of between $0m and a $20m loss.“The group has delivered a strong operating performance, ahead of our expectations and against a challenging regulatory backdrop,” William Hill’s newly appointed chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson said.“We made good progress on a number of fronts, including our retail business, online and in the US, enabling us to deliver on our long term strategic ambitions. We look forward to building on these efforts in 2020 with a strong focus on customer, team and execution.”William Hill plans to release its full financial results for 2019 on 26 February, 2020.Meanwhile, William Hill has announced that Ruth Prior is to step down as its chief financial officer in order to take up the same role with Element Materials Technology in the private sector.Prior’s contract requires her to give 12 months’ notice period and her departure date will be determined in due course. William Hill has now commenced a search to identify a successor.Having joined William Hill in October 2017 as a member of the board and group executive team, Prior played a major role in several transformation initiatives. She also held responsibility for group assurance and procurement functions.Bengtsson said: “I am very appreciative of Ruth’s support and professionalism since I took on the role as CEO. She has supported the business during what has been a period of unprecedented change for the sector and we would like to thank her for all she has done for William Hill.” Topics: Finance Sports betting Strategy William Hill set to surpass profit expectations for 2019 William Hill has revealed that it expects to post better-than-expected adjusted operating profit for the year ended 31 December, 2019, with the bookmaker forecasting that the final figure will fall between £143m (€167.0m/$185.8m) and £148m.

Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan’s lifelong ecumenical engagement has begun with her installation as the new president of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) on May 14.The current interim secretary general of the Anglican Communion and its former director for Unity, Faith and Order, she was unanimously elected to a three-year term as CCC president by the council’s governing board. She succeeds Lt. Col. Jim Champ of the Salvation Army.A priest of the Anglican Church of Canada, for which she served several years as ecumenical officer, Barnett-Cowan had previously served a term as one of CCC’s vice presidents. She brings with her a wealth of ecumenical experience, having been engaged with various inter-church dialogues and councils of churches at the local, regional, and international level.“I am delighted and honored to have been chosen for this important voluntary position. It is wonderful to be able to put the experience I’ve gained working for the ecumenical life of the Anglican Communion to use in the service of the Canadian churches,” Barnett-Cowan said of her appointment.“The CCC is one of the broadest ecumenical bodies in the world, and has much to offer to the Canadian landscape at this time,” she added.The Canadian Council of Churches is the largest ecumenical body in Canada, representing 25 churches of Anglican, Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, Protestant, and Roman Catholic traditions.Barnett-Cowan will conclude her short-term appointment as the Anglican Communion’s Interim Secretary General in June.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear From Family FeaturesIf you worry that you or someone you love will get heart disease or even have a heart attack, it’s understandable.Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).Research shows you can lower your risk, particularly if you team up with family, friends or co-workers. This kind of social support may be the key to your success.To help with your success, NHLBI, one of the National Institutes of Health, is inviting people across the country to team up and join #OurHearts, a national heart health initiative that encourages people to improve heart health together.“Studies show that having positive, close relationships and feeling connected to others benefits overall health, blood pressure, weight and more,” said NHLBI’s Dr. David Goff, director of cardiovascular sciences.Consider these five tips that can help lower your risk of heart disease:Risk: InactivitySolution: Move more throughout your day. Aim for at least 150 minutes each week of physical activity. Build up to activity that gets your heart beating faster and leaves you a little breathless. If you’re busy, try breaking your daily activity into 10-minute chunks.Stay motivated: Make walking dates. Join a pickup soccer or basketball game. Join a fitness class with your neighbor. Grab a loved one and dance in your kitchen.Risk: An unhealthy dietSolution: Consider an option like NHLBI’s Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) eating plan, which is free and scientifically proven to lower high blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels.Stay motivated: Invite friends to cook up heart healthy recipes together. Start a lunch club at work and trade recipe ideas.Risk: Smoking, even occasionallySolution: Quitting can be beneficial to your overall health, even if you’ve smoked for years. Set a quit date and let those close to you know. If you’ve tried quitting in the past, consider what helped and what made it harder.Stay motivated: Ask your family and friends for support or join a support group. Find resources and connect with a trained counselor at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or smokefree.gov.Risk: Inadequate or poor-quality sleepSolution: Sleeping 7-8 hours each night helps improve heart health. Try going to bed and waking up at the same time each day. Getting a 30-minute daily dose of sunlight may also improve sleep.Stay motivated: Resist that late afternoon nap. Turn off all screens at a set time nightly. Relax by listening to music, reading or taking a bath.Risk: Uncontrolled stressSolution: To help manage stress, try relaxation therapy and increase physical activity. Talk to a qualified mental health provider or someone you trust. De-stressing may also help improve sleep.Stay motivated: Join a friend or family member in a relaxing activity like walking, yoga or meditation every day.Learn about heart health and heart healthy activities in your community at nhlbi.nih.gov/ourhearts.

UCIT manages a £12m loan book for community and voluntary groups, and social enterprises, including faith-based organisations. Mr Sharvin said in recent years the way in which churches and faith groups have sought to practically serve their communities has changed and in many instances groups have set up social enterprises providing social housing, childcare facilities, community spaces and employability programmes.“We’ve supported a number of faith-based projects, but stand ready to support more,” Mr Sharvin said.UCIT said it had supported the Elim Trust Corporation to provide affordable housing and childcare projects in Newtownabbey and Carryduff.“The project is an important part of our ministry and is a practical demonstration of our commitment to the community. Without the social finance and advice provided by UCIT it would have been very difficult to make this ambition a reality.” Rev. Robert Ginn said.UCIT said it can provide funds for a range of purposes, including buildings and repairs, renewables and energy efficiency, debt restructuring, bridging finance and start-up costs. Social finance an option for churches says UCIT
Chicago activists from numerous organizations spoke out on April 20 against the detainment, torture and deportation of Filipino, Moro Muslim, Indigenous activist Jerome Aba by U.S. Border Control this week.A longtime peace and human rights activist, Aba traveled to the United States on April 17 for a scheduled meeting with the U.S. Council of Bishops and congressional representatives, as well as to participate in the “Stop the Killings” speaking tour. Despite having all relevant paperwork in order, including a 10-year visa, Jerome was detained and held for 28 hours, 22 of them without any contact with a lawyer.“Why was Jerome silenced?” Love Jordan, an activist with Anakbayan Chicago, asked the gathered crowd. “Were they afraid of his message of peace and international solidarity? We are here today in righteous indignation and outrage at the inhumane treatment of our friend and kasama” [Tagalog for “comrade”].Organizations supporting the demonstration included Chicago Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines, Anakbayan Chicago, National Alliance for Filipino Concerns, Workers World Party, Freedom Road Socialist Organization, Chicago Boricua Resistance, Answer-Chicago and Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
SHARE Facebook Twitter Colder air comes for the later part of next week. Temps will revert to 3-5 degrees below normal, and will likely stay in that range through the end of the month. But…keep in mind that temps will be in the 50s for normal highs by the end of the month, even lower 60s in the lower part of the state…so below normal air does not mean quite as much going from here forward. A very active pattern is in store for the 20th-25th, with several more rain laden systems moving in. The first, for the 20th looks to have quarter to .4” rains with it, and should give coverage at 80% of the state. The other systems still look to have a SW track/origin. We look for the state to finish the month of March closer to normal, but there will be a bias in the moisture to the southern half to third of the state, and we will be much drier in the northern third. SHARE Models are not in very good agreement for the start of next week. The American Model keeps warm, dry air in play and tries to keep temps above normal, while the European model brings colder air in and has a system come in from the NW. That system would mostly miss the state, but still could bring scattered light rain showers to the northern third of the state. We think that the true solution lies somewhere in-between…not as cold as the European, but nowhere near as warm as the GFS model. And, we do look for some very minor precipitation for Monday night into early Tuesday morning. Facebook Twitter The next batch of precipitation will work in tomorrow night through Friday, with moisture coming up from the southwest very similar to what happened yesterday. This time, though, we will see better coverage, with up to 70% of the state now looking like we will see light rain, and about half of the state can see rain totals over half an inch. Overall totals will range from a tenth to .8”. The heaviest rains will fall south and east of a line from Fort Wayne to Terre Haute. Drier weather settles in over the next two days, although we will have to deal with some serious fog, especially in central and southern Indiana where we saw slow moving light rain action yesterday. Temps will gain another 408 degrees today and tomorrow over what we have seen this week so far, and will continue to accelerate remaining snow melt state wide. BEYOND INDIANA:CORN WeatherArgentina sees a front move through late this week through the weekend that brings half to 1 inch rains to 70% of corn areas, and then a front stalls late next week over southern Cordoba and southern Buenos Aires province. That front can bring an other half to 1 inch. Mostly dry for the rest of the period. A drier trend has started to emerge over southern Matto Grosso do Sul, Parana and areas down through RGDS. This dry trend holds until late next Monday and Tuesday, when showers and storms are back and can bring half to 1 inch rain totals. South and eastern parts of the US corn belt are in line to get some rains off an on over the next 10 days to 2 weeks. IN, OH, KY, along with southern IL and southern MO will see half to 2 inch rains. Farther north and west, very little moisture is coming in over the short haul. Temps will be 10-20 degrees above normal through the end of the week, but then closer to normal next week. Snowmelt can provide anywhere from 1-3 inches of water for the rest of the week, which will be needed in western parts of the Corn Belt where rains miss. SOYBEAN WeatherA slow moving frontal complex moves across Brazil soy areas through the rest of the week, with the highest frequency rains coming from late tonight through Saturday. In this timeframe, we can see quarter to half inch totals each day, and the next 7 days can see rain totals at or above 2 inches. We should see a drier pattern emerge starting Sunday and continuing most of next week, with the exception being western Matto Grosso…scattered to spotty rains may hang around locally through the week next week, but will not be part of a bigger pattern. Heavy rains are still a concern here in the Deep South as we move toward planting of early beans here in a few weeks. The first big batch of rain is done, but we see two more systems in the next 10 days that come through, and they can bring another 1-3 inches of rain for the period. We also are trending toward a continuation of the wet pattern for the 11-16 day period. WHEAT Weather No change in the overall pattern. Most of HRW areas are warm and dry through the next 10 days, and the next good chance of precipitation may not develop until closer to the 20th. However, in east TX and OK, we do see heavier rains in the short term with 3 systems between now and the 19th. This will help east and southeast HRW areas. SRW areas continue to be divided north from south. Northern areas see combined 10 day rains from a tenth to half an inch. Southern SRW areas will be more in the half to 2 inch range. Temps above normal this week. Near normal next week, below normal after the 19th. Ukraine sees 10 day rain totals from half to 1 inch. Farther east, other parts of Western Russia and FSU areas are seeing lesser amounts. The totals are similar to what we saw yesterday, but we are seeing rains hold together better coming out of Eastern Europe as they come into Ukraine. This gradual shift in pattern should bring slightly better rains eventually into Russian growing regions, but for now, we keep them drier at half an inch or less for the entire 10 day period. Kazakhstan also looks to stay dry, especially in the west. Temps well above normal. In Australia, models suggest slightly better rains in Western Australia, but lesser rains in NSW over the 10 day period. In general, the changes are not enough for us to change our forecast, and the trend is still drier than we would like as we move toward planting in a few weeks. CATTLE Weather Normal to above normal temps for most cattle areas this week and next Heavy rains miss beef production areas in the central plains, but may impact feedyards in east Texas. Dairy areas stay dry, but warmer than normal. HOG Weather No major issues in hog areas, although we will see more moisture over OH valley areas in the next 10 days. Large snow melt equals mud…but not enough to make major headlines, as the bulk of hog areas had been drier than normal going into the heavy snows, and the soil profile will soak up moisture readily.
