The company, run by Chris Hohn and known for its sale of a stake in bank ABN Amro to RBS shortly before its nationalisation, made pre-tax profit of £101.5m in the 18 months to February, according to papers filed at Companies House. This compares to £556.2m in the 12 months to August 2008, displaying the hedge fund’s battering in the wake of the financial crisis. Turnover has also slumped 80 per cent to £120.8m.Hohn declined to comment yesterday, but the company directors said in a statement they expect market conditions to “continue to have a material impact on the income stream of the company over the following twelve months.” Hohn’s hedgies struggle Share KCS-content Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼

Under the new regulations, bonuses will be restricted and players and operators will be barred from advertising gambling-related services between 6am and 9pm, while players may also not receive promotions in this time.

Meerkerk, who studied clinical psychology and obtained his PhD in 2007 with a dissertation on excessive internet use, has been affiliated with the Institute for Research into Lifestyles & Addiction (IVO) for 25 years. He has conducted research into various forms of addiction, including gambling, alcohol, social media and the smartphone. Meerkerk, an advocate of a legal, regulated gambling sector, joins KSA ahead of the introduction of the long-awaited Remote Gambling Act, which will establish a licence system in 2021. “The gambling market is clearly on the move,” Meerkerk said. “Next year, the Remote Gaming Act will come into force, the law that legalises and regulates online gambling. That means there will be more supply and a lot of marketing. Regions: Europe Netherlands Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has bolstered its academic resources by appointing addiction expert Gert-Jan Meerkerk as a research partner. Research partners support employees of the KSA in the field of addiction prevention, regulation, supervision and combating crime and illegality. Meerkerk becomes the KSA’s fourth research partner, joining the organisation following the death of Dick de Bruin earlier this year. “Gambling addiction is not a huge problem in the Netherlands at the moment, it must remain that way. Incidentally, I am in favour of the law, because reclamation does not work. It is easier to protect consumers in a legal, regulated market.” “I hope and expect to contribute to the knowledge at the KSA about effective means for addiction prevention. That will be a subject that will receive a lot of attention. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Social responsibility

This element is viewed from all social areas of the house, with special interaction with the entrance hall.Save this picture!Esquema 1The architectural program considers a social area where the kitchen and the dining room converge; an intermediate services area where the bathroom and laundry closet are located; and finally a bedroom. Both the social area and the bedroom have rear semi-outdoor terraces which are perceived as extensions of the rooms. From the social terrace one can reach the back garden and an open rooftop courtyard.Save this picture!© Leo EspinosaThe climate of the region allows multiple openings to be closed only with mosquito net, allowing a constant natural ventilation.

To emphasize the demand that the state of New York adequately fund the City University of New York and give the Professional Staff Congress a decent contract, 41 members of the PSC and their supporters, including two City Council members, Inez Barron and I. Daneek Miller, staged a die-in in front of the Third Avenue office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo March 24. Five hundred members of the PSC, plus students and university workers represented by District Council 37, held a support rally across Third Avenue.The PSC has been without a contract for five years. DC37, part of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, hasn’t had a new contract for six years.Die-in participants were arrested and got desk appearance tickets, which means they were not held in jail, but must show up in court to face charges.Before the die-in blocked the entrance to the building, a delegation from DC37 went to his office and presented him with a 5,000-signature petition demanding a decent contract for DC37 members. CUNY is the third largest public institution of higher education in the United States. Counting full and part-time professional schools and institutes, CUNY enrolls around 450,000 students, overwhelmingly children and members of New York City’s working class.Seventy-five percent of its students are people of color; 40 percent were born outside the United States; 38 percent come from families with incomes below $20,000 a year; 30 percent work more than 20 hours a week for pay. (CUNY Office of Institutional Research) Almost all the students see a CUNY degree as an essential step for getting a decent job and a chance for a better life.Cuomo’s first executive budget, presented in January, shifted responsibility for a $485 million contribution to CUNY’s budget from the state to the city. This is about one-third of CUNY’s total budget. Cuomo’s step reneged on the state’s obligation to support CUNY’s senior colleges, which it assumed during the city’s 1970s financial crisis.Barbara Bowen, president of the PSC, said of CUNY’s finances, “It’s just a constant, constant austerity, even though we’re way past the recession.” Trying to deal with a major budget shortfall, CUNY has reduced the courses it offers, laid off part-time faculty, particularly the adjuncts who have no job security, and squeezed money from student services and even laboratory supplies. (New York Times, Jan. 14)Measuring from just before the 2008 recession, the amount of per-student state funding that CUNY receives has declined 17 percent, adjusted for inflation. But tuition, which goes into the state’s pockets before it gets returned to the colleges, has gone up $300 per student per year ever since Cuomo became governor in 2010. The reaction to Cuomo’s shorting CUNY’s budget by $485 million was so sharp that the day before the die-in, Cuomo announced he would fully fund CUNY. But then the New York State Senate announced it was going to restore the $485 million cut to “send a message” that CUNY administrators have not done enough to fight campus anti-Semitism. What provoked this charge is a few demonstrations by Students for Justice in Palestine where chants of “Zionists out of CUNY” and “U.S. out of the Middle East” were raised. (Forward, March 25)Like many reactionaries in the United States, the New York State Senate uses the charge of anti-Semitism to slander any struggle against the colonialist and pro-imperialist role of the Israeli state.Some Israeli and pro-Zionist newspapers have picked up this struggle against the SJP as part of their ideological offensive against the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and are trying to hold the education of the working class of New York City hostage.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy noted, “The RFS has been an overwhelming success. It has created American jobs, revitalized rural America, injected much-needed competition into a monopolized vehicle fuels market, lowered the price at the pump, improved the environment, and made our nation more energy independent and secure by reducing our dangerous dependence on foreign oil. It makes no sense that EPA would try and move this program backward.

The right of reply and debate continue to be the simplest and most effective methods for maintaining the necessary dialogue between politicians and the media.”The police surrounded the entrance to Tema’s offices on 9 January, preventing journalists and other employees from entering. The interior ministry said it was implementing a December 2007 economy ministry decision unilaterally terminating Tema’s contract for the rent of the offices it has occupied in a state-owned building for the past 20 years.In a statement posted on 9 January on the Tema website, editor Memo Baze announced that the cancellation of the rental contract had been rescinded by a 6 January court order, which thereby allowed Tema to continue occupying the premises.Tema has in recent week published articles about corruption cases in which members of the government are allegedly implicated.Albania was ranked 79th out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

This year’s entry is called “Never Give Up” and was drawn from their archive of designs to fit the theme “Echoes of Success.” It features the Tortoise and the Hare from Aesop’s Fables and promotes the idea of perseverance.“It’s not so much about the success but the journey to success,” said Janet Benjamin, Decoration Chair.Volunteers carefully work to apply floral materials like eucalyptus bark, which was gathered from the War Memorial Park in South Pasadena, dried chickpeas and pinecones. Flowers started arriving on Wednesday and it will be a team effort to finish the float by parade day.“It really is a community building event,” said Benjamin. “We have so many people that come year after year – it really is like a family.”Volunteers included local high school students, out of town visitors and parade-fans looking to check float decorating off their holiday bucket list.South Pasadena’s float has a decorated Barbie hidden on the float every year. Benjamin explains that this tradition comes from a child who was reluctant to stop playing with a Barbie during float decorating and their parent decorated and sent the Barbie on the float as a joke. This year, Barbie will be dressed as a Ninja Turtle.Another special feature is the back of the float decorations. Many floats focus on the front and ignore the back of their floats but the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses always makes a point to add something fun. Look out for a turtle, the same one that rode on last year’s float.Be sure the catch the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses float on January 2.
