NBA seals partnership with Uruguayan gaming operator

first_img Regions: LATAM Uruguay 10th December 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops North America’s National Basketball Association (NBA) has moved to enhance its presence in the Latin American sports betting market by striking up a partnership with Uruguayan operator Supermatch.Supermatch, the designated sports betting operator of the Uruguayan national lottery, will now serve as the first official gaming partner of the NBA in the South American country.The domestic operator will promote the partnership in more than 6,000 retail locations throughout Uruguay, while both Supermatch and the NBA will showcase the new agreement via its various online platforms.The deal also allows Supermatch to use official NBA data and branding across its land-based and digital sports betting services. In addition, the two parties will work together on initiatives to protect the integrity of NBA games.“Supermatch is the exclusive authorised gaming operator in Uruguay, and our new partnership will offer more ways for our passionate fans to connect and experience the excitement of our game,” said Arnon de Mello, vice president and managing director for Latin America at the NBA.Roberto Palermo, president of La Banca, Uruguay’s national lottery, added: “Through this new partnership, our clients will not only continue to enjoy our gaming offers, but they will also get even closer to the action with the chance to win NBA prizes and unique NBA experiences.”The deal is something of an unusual move by the NBA, which, historically, does not have strong links with Uruguay. Esteban Batista is the only Uruguayan to have played in the NBA, spending two seasons with the Atlanta Hawks from 2005 until 2007.However, the partnership does mark the latest in a series of deals that the NBA has agreed in the wake of the US Supreme Court ruling on PASPA, which has allowed states to begin legalising sports betting across the country.In August, the NBA became the first professional sports league in the US to sign a deal with a gambling company when it entered an agreement with MGM Resorts. MGM has since followed up on this by securing similar deals with Major League Baseball and the NHL ice hockey league.MGM does not currently have a presence in Uruguay and is unlikely to directly benefit from the new deal with Supermatch.In addition, the NBA last month announced Sportradar and Genius Sports as its first data partners in the US, with the agreement allowing both companies to offer official NBA data to sports betting operators across the country.Away from the US, the NBA in November brokered a deal with La Française des Jeux (FDJ), making the French gaming giant its first European gaming partner.Image: Keith Allison / Tim Frazier Basketball league links up with Uruguayan sports betting operator Supermatch Sports betting Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter NBA seals partnership with Uruguayan gaming operatorlast_img read more

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!center_img I’ve had something of a love/hate relationship with Premier Oil (LSE: PMO). Yes, I know, I should never get emotionally attached to a stock. And I do try not to, honest. But the Premier Oil share price has had me swinging between excited optimism and despair for a few years now. Let me tell you my tale.I bought back in September 2015, close to the depths of the last oil price crash. The PMO share price looked a good choice for the recovery I saw as inevitable, and I plonked down 99p per share. By January, the price had crashed to just 19p and the shares were suspended. Got the timing wrong again, idiot!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…Up, down, up…Once trading recommenced, the price started to pick up and I held on. But by December 2019, after a roller-coaster ride, I decided I’d made a mistake. I’d abandoned my mature safety-based strategy in pursuit of the riskier growth stocks I favoured in my youth. So I got my act together and sold, at 89p for a loss that wasn’t too painful, and vowed never to care about the Premier Oil share price again. Of course, it promptly climbed to 120p in January. There’s my terrible timing again.But then the Covid-19 pandemic led to a stock market crash and a new oil price slump. And the PMO share price plunged again, falling as low as 10p. Phew, lucky timing for once, and I breathed a sigh of relief. Now, surely, I can forever put Premier Oil out of my mind.Premier Oil share priceExcept I can’t. I love a twisty turny stock story. And I owe it to myself (and my readers) to keep my thoughts updated. It’s educational, see, to keep up with our failures and make sure we never forget the lessons. So what do I think now, with the Premier Oil share price all the way back up to 52p again?Well, I won’t buy-in again myself. That’s because Premier Oil really doesn’t fit my strategy. But if I were 30 years younger? With more time ahead of me to make and recover from mistakes in the pursuit of big growth opportunities?I only see two likely outcomes for the Premier Oil share price now. Either the company will collapse under the weight of its debt and the price will drop to zero. Or it will survive, will get back to chipping away at that debt, and the PMO share price will climb over the long term.Survival or bust?Which will it be? Much like my thoughts on Tullow Oil a few days ago, I’m optimistic again. As recently as this month, Premier told us its plans to acquire assets from BP were going ahead. It will fund part of that from a new share issue, so there’ll be a little dilution, But that’s definitely not the action of a company circling the drain.Premier also has proposed amendments to its credit facilities in the pipeline, but there seems to be little urgency there.So yes, I see the Premier Oil share price as a promising buy right now, if still risky.

How I’ll find the best dividend stocks for 2021

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. How I’ll find the best dividend stocks for 2021 The best dividend stocks for 2021 may not necessarily be those companies with the highest yields. Yes, a generous passive income is likely to be attractive in 2021. But affordable dividends and the prospect of growth may be equally important.As such, I would search for strong businesses in sectors that are currently out of favour with investors. If they have long-term growth opportunities, it could be a sound strategy to find the best income shares for 2021.5G 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…Dividend stocks with high yieldsDividend stocks with high yields may be more common in sectors that are currently unpopular among investors. They may have experienced share price falls since the start of the year. If they have maintained, or even increased, dividends then this may mean they offer high income returns at the present time.High-yielding dividend shares could become increasingly popular among investors in the coming months. Low interest rates look set to remain in place for an extended period of time. This could mean that income stocks with high yields are a relatively rare opportunity to generate inflation-beating income returns over the medium term. As such, dividend stocks with high yields could experience high demand that means they offer impressive capital gains to complement their passive income prospects.Dividend affordability in 2021The outlook for dividend stocks is very uncertain. Risks such as the coronavirus pandemic look set to remain in place for at least part of 2021. As such, the economic outlook could continue to be very challenging across a number of different sectors.This means that dividend affordability may be crucial for any investor seeking to make a passive income. Therefore, checking a company’s financial position may be more important than ever. It can provide guidance as to the affordability of dividends should operating conditions worsen.Information on the debt levels and interest cover of dividend stocks can act as a guide in assessing their financial strength. Meanwhile, dividend cover provides guidance on whether a company could withstand a drop in profitability when it comes to paying dividends. Ensuring a business has headroom when making dividend payments could be a prudent approach ahead of what may prove to be an uncertain 2021.Dividend growth potentialAs well as high yields and affordable payouts, dividend stocks with growth potential could be worth buying for 2021 and beyond. Companies that can grow dividends at a pace that exceeds inflation may become more popular in the coming years. This could mean they produce strong capital growth.Clearly, assessing a company’s dividend growth prospects is tough at the present time. Shareholder payouts are closely linked to the outlook for profitability. However, by investing money in sectors with sound track records and clear opportunities for growth, it may be possible to find the most attractive income shares that deliver the highest returns in 2021 and in the coming years.

Lake Apopka’s water level increased 0.2 foot to 66 feet, matching its regulation schedule for August.From St. Johns River Water Management DistrictAugust brought above-average rainfall across much of the St. Johns River Water Management District and shrank a 12-month rainfall deficit in Putnam, St. Johns and Flagler counties.A full report outlining hydrological conditions was presented at the District’s September Governing Board meeting. Highlights included:RainfallDistrictwide, August rainfall was 0.9 inch above the long-term average of 7 inches.While Brevard and Indian River counties were in a drier zone, Indian River had the only countywide rainfall total that was below average, receiving 1.4 inches less than its long-term August average.Counties receiving the most rainfall in August were Duval and Marion, both of which exceeded 9 inches of rain.Districtwide, the cumulative rainfall total over the last 12 months is 49 inches, which is 2 inches below the long-term average.Putnam, Flagler and St. Johns counties benefited from above-average rain, but it did not erase their 12-month deficits.Counties with the greatest long-term deficits are Indian River, St. Johns and Putnam. Each have had less than 45 inches of rain over the last 12 months.GroundwaterUpper Floridan aquifer conditions (groundwater levels) at the end of August were in the normal or high range throughout most of the District.Groundwater levels are at the 69th percentile districtwide. This means that since 1980, aquifer levels have been higher than they are now about 31 percent of the time.Surface water flowsSurface water flow conditions in the St. Johns River’s headwaters were in the average range for this time of year.Flow in the headwaters at the Melbourne station was 771 million gallons per day (mgd) on Sept. 1, which is in the 65th percentile of flow conditions for this time of year.Orlando-area tributaries were in the average or slightly above average flow ranges.Flow conditions in central Florida were in the high range on Sept. 1, with the DeLand station reporting 3.56 billion gallons per day (bgd), or in the 79th percentile, while the Satsuma station reported 6.9 bgd (81st percentile).At the Wekiva River near Sanford, flows were 253 mgd (77th percentile).Flows in the Ocklawaha River near Conner were 690 mgd (58th percentile).Flows in the St. Marys River near Macclenny were 342 mgd (53rd percentile).Lake levelsLake Brooklyn water levels decreased 0.4 foot to 100.4 feet in August.Lake Weir increased 0.2 foot to 53 feet during August.Lake Apopka’s water level increased 0.2 foot to 66 feet, matching its regulation schedule for August.At 21. 7 feet, Blue Cypress Lake levels changed little during the month and remain consistent with its regulation schedule. Keeping water levels low in the Upper St. Johns River Basin helps the District prepare for greater rainfall during the tropical season.Spring flowsThe mean monthly flow at Silver Springs decreased to 616 cubic feet per second (cfs), or 398 mgd. This represents a 29 cfs decrease compared to July.At the Blue Spring station in Volusia County, the mean monthly flow was recorded at 150 cfs, or 97 mgd, which is within the normal range for the time of year.At Rock Springs, the monthly mean flow was 61 cfs (39 mgd), an increase of 2 cfs compared to July.Mean monthly flow at Wekiwa Springs was 66 cfs (43 mgd), an increase of 2 cfs.To learn more about rainfall totals and other hydrologic data collected, visit sjrwmd.com.Visit the District’s Water Less campaign webpage at WaterLessFlorida.com and follow the District on social media to learn ways to conserve water outdoors.

Located on the west coast of Sweden, Gothenburg, Swedish architect duo Mikael and Fanny Ellsinger has completed their first project – their own home consisting of an aluminium box, supported by 17 super-slim columns which are cast into almost one-metre deep holes drilled in the granite. The uneven site has been left untouched, the reddish granite creating a stage for the startling building. The roof rests on the outer walls and three wooden pillars in the centre of the building.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe house was a chance for the couple to test out techniques they don’t normally get to try out in client projects. Above all, the rational and functional have had an impact on both the exterior and interior. The aluminium panelled facade is low maintenance and perfect for its exposed position by the Kattegat sea. The shiny surface reflects the sky and changes character depending on the weather. From cold blue in the morning to warm and golden in the evening. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanBudget and time were the most important factors in the choice of design and materials. The roof structure is visible internally and allowed the Ellsingers to avoid plastering and painting the ceiling. The electrical wiring is also deliberately exposed. The choice of materials and colours inside is straightforward and minimized the number of choices to be made. Pine, cork, white walls and black and white ceramics create a soothing atmosphere, contrasting the stormy weather on the outside. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe building consists of two sections, one private and one social. The private area contains bedrooms, bathrooms and a laundry room, while the rest is an open volume housing the kitchen and living room. This section also contains a smaller volume with the entrance and a storage room. Since everything is fitted on one floor, it was important to create a light source in the centre of the building with the help of the atrium, home to the family’s private courtyard. This also meant four new facades and with it a more flexible and efficient way of using the space. It not only gives light but also a pleasant coolness during warmer periods.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanProject gallerySee allShow less“Architecture is Something That You Will Never Forget“: In Conversation with Gilles …InterviewsSingapore Rising: Designing a New FutureArticles Sharelast_img read more

Bill Halting Duplicative EPA Pesticide Permit Requirement Approved by Committee

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Bill Halting Duplicative EPA Pesticide Permit Requirement Approved by Committee Bill Halting Duplicative EPA Pesticide Permit Requirement Approved by Committee Senator Pat RobertsU.S. Senator Pat Roberts, R-Kan., Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, is pleased to announce the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works has passed S. 1500, the Sensible Environmental Protection Act of 2015. The bipartisan legislation, cosponsored by Sen. Roberts, eliminates redundant federal permitting requirements for pesticide applications. “This duplicative pesticide permitting requirement provides no environmental protections or benefits and is only a nuisance to hard-working farmers and other pesticide applicators,” Roberts said. “I continually hear about this issue from farm country, and I hope we can finally put it to bed once and for all.”Introduced by Sens. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, and Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., the legislation amends the Clean Water Act and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) to clarify Congressional intent regarding the regulation of the use of pesticides in or near navigable waters. The bill requires EPA to consult with the Secretary of Agriculture and report to Congress on streamlining data collection and use regarding water quality due to the registration and use of pesticides. The agencies will also provide recommendations on how FIFRA can better protect water quality and human health.Chairman Roberts is an outspoken opponent of the EPA’s burdensome and duplicative pesticide permitting requirements. He has introduced similar legislation in the previous Congress.

Vice President Mike Pence attends.(Official White House Photo by D. Myles Cullen)U.S. and Chinese officials will review the Phase One trade deal implementation and likely air grievances that both sides have on August 15 during a video conference.Two people familiar with the plans told Reuters that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He, the principal negotiators of the deal, will participate in the meeting, which will be a six-month review of the deal that became active on February 15.The Wall Street Journal initially reported the details of the meeting between the two countries.Under the deal, China pledged to boost purchases of U.S. goods by $200 billion over 2017 levels. Those purchases were to include agricultural and manufactured products, along with energy and other services.However, China has been hit hard by the coronavirus recession and fallen far behind the pace it needs to meet the first-year goal of a $77 billion increase. Imports of farm goods have also been lower than the 2017 level the agreement was based on.China’s ambassador to the U.S. says they always had a plan in place for high-level talks six months into the pact.President Donald Trump had threatened to end the deal over China’s handling of the coronavirus. Tensions have risen over U.S. sanctions related to China’s crackdown on Hong Kong.last_img read more
