Balls, who is seeking to flesh out Labour’s economic policy ahead of the Budget on 23 March, said the tax would “boost jobs and growth”. He urged the government to spend £600m on a job creation scheme for unemployed youths – similar to the now-defunct future jobs funds – which he said would generate 90,000 jobs. Labour’s future jobs fund was scrapped last year by the coalition after a Department for Work and Pensions study showed that 50 per cent of participants were back on benefits within seven months of joining the scheme. Balls said the government should also put £1.2bn towards building 25,000 new homes, which he said would create a further 20,000 jobs – bringing the total to 110,000.A further £200m should be used to boost the regional growth fund, he said. Balls accused chancellor George Osborne of pursuing a “reckless experiment to cut too deep and too fast” and said the economy had “taken a turn for the worse”. However, he remained tight-lipped on which spending reductions Labour would oppose and how it would fund the cost to the cash-strapped exchequer. And he repeated his call for a reduction in fuel VAT, despite claims that such a tax cut would fall foul of European laws. last_img read more

While a decline at this time of year is a regular seasonal effect, the drop was greater than usually witnessed, the ONS said.“Yet that component of industrial production is typically volatile from month to month. February’s drop in industrial production is not quite as bad as it first looks,” said Samuel Tombs of Capital Economics.A relatively mild February was another one-off factor behind the figures, as gas supply output fell by 9.2 per cent, and the energy sector as a whole was down 2.1 per cent month-on-month.According to the underlying trend, production was up 0.8 per cent in the three months to February, compared to the previous three months. Manufacturing on the quarter-by-quarter measure was up 1.1 per cent, according to the figures. last_img read more

Buenos Aires Province awards 7 igaming licences

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Buenos Aires Province awards 7 igaming licences Announced on 31 December 2020, licences were granted to Argenbingo, in partnership with William Hill; Pasteko together with bet365; Hotel Casino Tandil with Playtech and 888 Holdings with Boldt.  Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Online casino Licensing Regulation Online lottery Online sports betting It was subsequently awarded one of the seven available after Paddy Power Betfair and Bingo Pilar’s application was withdrawn, following parent Flutter’s acquisition of The Stars Group. In addition, Atlantica de Juegos and Flutter Entertainment; Binbaires with Intralot, and Casino de Victoria in partnership with Betsson, have all been licensed. The president of the Buenos Aires’ Provincial Institute of Lotteries and Casinos has awarded online operating licenses to 7 gaming companies, including brands owned by William Hill, Playtech and Betsson. 5th January 2021 | By Conor Mulheir This sets annual licence fees of USD$100,000, as well as a USD$30,000 licence processing fee. Operators in the capital will have to pay a 10% gross revenue tax. The regulations state that licences may only be awarded in cases where operations will be carried out by a human or legal person, or a public or private entity with a registered address in the province of Buenos Aires. Within 10 days of signing for a licence, the operators must present the regulator’s compliance guarantee to ensure they will undertake the responsibilities set out in provincial regulations. Licensingcenter_img Regions: LATAM Argentina The seven operators’ applications were approved in January last year, with the exception of Betsson’s partnership with Casino de Victoria, which had been eighth in line to receive a licence. However, the process appeared to grind to a halt in the wake of provincial governor Axel Kicillof’s election. This meant it took more than a year before the licences were confirmed in the province’s Official Gazette. The City of Buenos Aires, meanwhile, has developed its own regulatory framework, under which operators – and later land-based gaming businesses – could apply for a licence to operate in the Argentinean capital. Tags: Buenos Aires AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter In the case of foreign companies, licences may only be granted under a temporary union of companies (UTE) where a locally based person or company holds a minimum 15% stake in the operation. The province’s licensing process officially launched in June 2019, with criteria for selection including industry experience, financial capacity and data security. Licensees will be required to pay a single fixed fee of AR$65m (£565,000/€625,000/$768,000), with AR$26m required at the moment of signing the agreement which formalises the granting of the licence, with the remaining sum to be paid later. They will also be subject to a 25% gross revenue tax. Email Addresslast_img read more

Stock market crash: 3 cheap UK shares I’d buy today in an ISA to get rich

first_imgStock market crash: 3 cheap UK shares I’d buy today in an ISA to get rich 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. Image source: Getty Images The stock market crash of 2020 is far from over, I think. Although some UK shares have surged to record highs, some look cheap now. I’d probably buy them.Stock market crash The coronavirus has led to consequences for the UK’s economy that we’ve never seen before. The GDP fall, the rising unemployment rate, and low consumer demand are just some of the problems we face. But some industries have suffered more than others. Among them are the tourist sector, the oil companies, and the financials. 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…Many analysts reckon it will take these sectors several years to return to normal. It’s especially true of the tourist industry – the airlines and the cruise companies, for example. Although I consider myself to be a risk-averse investor, I’d still be willing to invest some money in the ‘big guys’ operating in these sectors. Here are some UK shares that I am considering.Carnival Corporation – cheap UK sharesWe all remember the Diamond Princess incident, when thousands of passengers got stuck on the board the cruise ship. Well, the ship was owned by Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise company. Since then the tourist industry has been a disaster. Cruise ships still have plenty of cash expenses, even when they are not operating tours, including servicing and repairs. At the same time, the demand for cruises is now historically low. So, the company ended up reporting losses this year and had to cancel its dividends. But I am sure that this ‘this too shall pass’ and brave investors will eventually get rewarded.  HSBC – a buy at current levels?This large well-established bank has suffered from the financials sector’s overall weakness since the beginning of the pandemic. What’s, the escalating tensions between the US and China are a threat to this Hong Kong bank. But its problems had started long before that. The thing is that Asia is HSBC‘s main source of revenue and profits. Operations in Europe and the US have always been quite costly to the bank. So, even before the March stock market crash, HSBC tried to cut costs by closing some of its branches in the EU and the US, making employees redundant. It all sounds grim. But I believe the bank will survive and flourish after the recession.Buy Shell after the crash?The oil industry was also badly hurt as a result of the pandemic. The oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia also made oil futures turn negative this spring. This made all the oil companies struggle. But Shell and BP are the largest FTSE 100 companies and are well-suited to survive the current crisis. However, Shell has a lower debt load than BP.This is what I’d doSurely, the risks of investing in businesses that aren’t currently profitable are substantial. But the companies I’ve just mentioned are really big. So, I think they’ll be the first to benefit from economic recovery. Patience and willingness to buy when most other investors are scared to is a good way to get rich and retire early. At the same time, I’d only invest quite a small sum of money in these companies.  Anna Sokolidou | Friday, 7th August, 2020 Anna Sokolidou has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

DeSantis: Florida hospitals not running short of remdesivir

first_imgBy John Haughey | The Center SquareFlorida hospitals are not running short of remdesivir and the state will receive additional shipments within days, Gov. Ron DeSantis reiterated Friday.“The White House is expediting more remdesivir for the state of Florida. We think the weekend,” DeSantis said.Remdesivir is an intravenous drug that “may shorten the recovery time” for COVID-19 patients by “decreasing the amount of the coronavirus in your body,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).DeSantis issued assurances last week, Thursday and Friday, about the drug’s supply after Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio twice warned that Florida hospitals were running short of remdesivir.“New reports late last night of several hospitals in #Florida with low or no supplies of remdesivir,” Rubio tweeted Thursday. “Shipments are coordinated by the federal govt & we have a bad disconnect between what they think we need & what we really need. Working hard to solve this problem immediately.”Rubio later added that the state’s “hospital capacity was 20.72% & ICU was 15%.“But these numbers will get much worse if discharges slow down due to not enough doses of Remdesivir. We can’t wait until July 27th for next allocation,” Rubio said.Rubio’s office later issued an email statement that said Florida received two recent shipments of remdesivir from the federal government for hospitals that “was not based on the recent increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations, and it is clear that Florida hospitals now need more than they did when the assessment was made in early July.”In response, DeSantis told reporters Thursday during a pandemic mental health roundtable at the Tampa Bay Crisis Center that the state has received several recent shipments of remdesivir, including one last weekend from the federal government and a 280-dose batch from New York on Monday.DeSantis said,” I wouldn’t say there is a disconnect,” noting it’s more a matter of supply as demand increases.“As this has come online, it’s kind of defaulted to the standard of care. So as people come in I think they are tending to get prescribed the remdesivir so we obviously want to help with that.”DeSantis said Florida will receive shipments before July 27.“I spoke with the Vice President (Mike Pence) last night about the need to continue the supply, so he understands it,” DeSantis said. “And basically I think his thought was, look, we’re looking at southern California, Arizona, Texas and Florida as kind of the priorities on this. And so I do anticipate that we’ll be able to get it. We obviously said that we want to get it as soon as possible.”DeSantis said Friday the federal government confirmed it would ship remdesivir this weekend.“Most of the physicians I have spoken to around the state say it is effective. Hospitals want more,” he said. “This is something that is important for some of our patients who have gone into the hospital.”If there is an issue with the drug, it is not availability but how some hospitals are using it.“We did have some treatments of it where you were going beyond the five days, which obviously uses up more vials.” DeSantis said. “Basically, I think the White House’s view is, scientifically, we think the five-day regimen can be beneficial. They don’t have much evidence that going beyond that tends to be beneficial.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear EDITOR’S NOTE: Florida Hospital Associations, which represents over 200 hospitals, said the last remdesivir shipment was not enough and on Saturday, July 18, for an expedited shipment of the drug. At a news conference that same day, Governor DeSantis announced that 30,000 vials of the drug should be shipped to Florida hospitals within 48-72 hours, and the shipment should treat 5,000 patients, per the Associated Press.  TAGSCOVID-19Florida US Senator Marco RubioGovernor Ron DeSantisHospitalsRemdesivirThe Center Square Previous articleDoing our part makes a difference: SJRWMD report shows 9% decrease in water use over last decadeNext articleOCPS extends Summer Meals Program, plus free food for kids under 18 through Summer BreakSpot – many Apopka locations Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
