Shares in the company closed 1.7 per cent higher at 14.75p as it looked likely to meet its May deadline.Half-year results indicated strong cash flow revealing the business held £261m in cash reserves with a total net debt of £2.9bn.Yell has managed to reduce its debt mountain gradually, including securing a strong refinancing agreement two years ago to alleviate pressure.However analysts still view the business with caution, pointing to reluctance amongst small businesses to advertise during the downturn and growing competition online.Alex DeGroote analyst at Panmure Gordon said: “The quantum of debt is so large that it really obscures equity.“Its online business isn’t totally out of the game but if you’ve got 85 per cent of business in print declining you need to have high growth in other areas to compensate for that.“It has got appeal if there’s a turnaround in the advertising climate for smaller businesses.” Share whatsappcenter_img KCS-content Yell saves £3m with payment Tags: NULL by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Spain creates commission to combat sports manipulation


first_imgLegal & compliance Spain creates commission to combat sports manipulation Spain’s Ministry of the Presidency has approved the creation of a national commission to combat match-fixing and betting-related fraud. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Regions: Europe Southern Europe Spaincenter_img Spain’s Ministry of the Presidency has approved the creation of a national commission to combat match-fixing and betting-related fraud.According to the Ministry, the Commission will “develop action plans [and] recommendations or diagnoses to detect, prevent and combat illegal actions in the field of sports competitions and fraud in betting.”Members of the commission will include Representatives of Spain’s gambling regulator, the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ), the National Police, the Civil Guard, the Higher Sports Council and persons related to sports competitions and the betting sector.The Commission will be chaired on a rotating basis by the head of the DGOJ and the Directorate General of Sports (DGS), who will alternate each year in the presidency.The new body’s first task will be to develop a new early warning system developed by the DGOJ, which is intended to act as a point of communication to prevent match-fixing and fraud.“Corruption linked to the manipulation of sports competitions and betting-related fraud are two of the greatest threats to sport and horse racing, as it undermines each sport’s core values ​​and ruins the experience for fans and spectators,” the Ministry said.“For this reason… the Government has considered it necessary to establish at the national level a formalised channel of dialogue and cooperation between public authorities, sports organizations, organizers of competitions sports and representatives of the gaming sector.”In June, the DGOJ published a new three-year strategy to ensure the industry operates in a socially responsible manner. The strategy included four priority areas: ensuring a safe and secure gaming environment for players; encouraging licensees to innovate across all channels; improving responsible gambling controls, and having a positive impact on Spanish society.On 12 July 2019, The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), the sports betting integrity body for the lottery industry, reported 64 matches as potentially fraudulent in the first half of 2019 as a result of suspicious betting activity. 15th July 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

4 easy ways for fundraisers to improve how they engage celebrities


first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Tagged with: Celebrity Donorfy 4 easy ways for fundraisers to improve how they engage celebrities In an interview with Donorfy, the cloud-based fundraising CRM, athlete Sally Gunnell OBE shared several ways that charity fundraisers can better engage with celebrities to improve their fundraising campaigns.Gunnell is the only woman in history simultaneously to hold Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth titles, together with the 400 metres hurdles world record. Now she splits her time between motivational and inspirational speaking, media work, working with organisations to become ‘Fit / Fitter for Business’, charity work and spending time with her family.“My children are all very active, and now I experience what my parents did with me: running them all over the place for various activities”, she said. “My eldest son has a passion for running and now travels overseas and the length and breadth of UK training and competing.” Howard Lake | 22 September 2017 | News 1. Take advantage in the popularity of being activeSally feels that the number of runners, cyclists and skydivers advertising their fundraising pages on social media makes it seem that being active is more popular than ever.“I think people today have an even better understanding of the benefits of being more active. It’s also a great motivator and being able to support a great cause is the icing on the cake.”“I enjoy pilates and cycling – with a little bit of running. This is why you often see me doing something for charity. Having a goal is important part of maintaining motivation to stay active, I think.”2. Understand why a celebrity wants to work with youSally gets asked to lend her name to numerous good causes, but doesn’t have a strict criteria for who she gives her time to.“It is very difficult, as I am asked a lot. I hate saying no, but you do have to be realistic. I also have to consider the other charities I support as well. I don’t have a criteria per se, I just try and rotate my time as much as I can.”Sally is a supporter of St Barnabas House and their children’s hospice Chestnut Tree House. She works with them for two main reasons. First, they provide a fantastic service. Secondly, they’re local to her. Advertisement This article was adapted from an interview with Sally Gunnell as part of Donorfy’s Nonprofit Heroes series, featuring industry experts and successful fundraisers with stories and tips to inspire your charity to use technology to your advantage and do good, better. 3. Make it really easy for the celebrity to be involvedSally also often takes part in St Barnabas House events, but says there’s no great science behind how they work together: “They put on lots of fantastic events throughout the year and, diary permitting, I go to as many as I can. Other than that, I still put in the training so I can be prepared.”“You need to make it really easy for celebrities to be involved. Use their time for maximum impact. That might mean looking at the events planned and picking out key dates when you’ll be able to reach the most people and have the best opportunity to attract new supporters.”4. Charities can benefit from an increased focus on corporate/office wellbeingThe UK charity sector employed around a million people, and benefit from a huge number of volunteers doing anything from office work to helping out at events. As such, charities, their staff and volunteers can gain from an increased focus on corporate/office wellbeing.“Corporate wellbeing is just about adopting a more rounded approach to wellbeing. Health affects work and work impacts on health – it’s all connected.”“Wellbeing isn’t just about running five miles a day. We look at helping individuals make small well-executed changes to key areas of their life (activity, nutrition, mental resilience and sleep) that will enable them to make a sustainable positive difference to their lifestyle. If everyone links together small positive changes in those key areas of their life, they’ll be even more effective in the valuable work that they do.”“I also use a corporate app called KIN, which allows me to connect with a larger number of people in supporting the wellbeing programmes I put together for businesses and organisations.”  203 total views,  1 views today  204 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

QRMs are securities that are collateralized exclusively by residential mortgages, and they are exempt from risk retention requirements. According to GAO, securities collateralized solely by QM loans are also exempt from risk retention requirements. The QRM rule is scheduled to go into effect in December 2015.GAO’s report estimated limited effects of these regulations on availability of mortgages for most borrowers. The report also found that litigation and compliance issues would be at the root of most cost increases for borrowers, lenders, and investors. The QRM regulations were not expected to have a significant initial effect on availability or securitization of mortgages, according to agency officials and observers, because QM loans were expected to comprise the majority of loans originated. GAO stated, however, that the size and viability of the secondary market for non-QRM-backed securities remained in question.The GAO recommended that “CFPB, HUD, and the six agencies responsible for the QRM regulations should complete plans to review the QM and QRM regulations, including identifying specific metrics, baselines, and analytical methods. CFPB, HUD, and one QRM agency—the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation—concurred or agreed with the recommendations. The other QRM agencies did not explicitly agree with the recommendations, but outlined ongoing efforts to plan their reviews.”Click here to read the entire report. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Previous: Freddie Mac’s ‘Take Root’ Programs Have Been Successful in Hardest Hit Areas Next: CFPB Penalizes Paymap for Deceptive Ads; LoanCare Also Implicated Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Brian Honea Tagged with: CFPB Government Accountability Office Qualified Mortgage Rule Qualified Residential Mortgage Rule Subscribelast_img read more

Three women arrested for unfurling giant ‘VOTE’ banner on NYC bridge


first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Three women were arrested Monday after allegedly carrying a large banner, wrapped in rope, on to the Manhattan Bridge bike path in New York, authorities said.NYPD officers stopped them before the banner was unfurled.The women – ages 26, 33 and 37 – were taken into custody, police said.Only one word on the banner was exposed: “VOTE.”The women appear to be part of a group called the Flo Kennedy Society, named after the prolific feminist and civil rights activist Florynce Kennedy, who died in 2000.In a statement, the group implored citizens to get out and vote on Election Day.“During the past two years, our communities have been attacked from every angle,” the statement read. “From the mainstreaming of hate to the lies and destructive policies of a disturbed, amoral administration, our nation has been victimized by the steady degradation of all we hold dear as a country. We know you are exhausted. We know you feel defeated. But we implore you: give your last ounce of energy in service to your nation and show up at the polls this Tuesday.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
