Net debt stood at £1.37bn at the end of June. In October, the company paid £167m to exit a series of interest rate hedging derivatives. Shore Capital analysts described Premier as “pension burdened and indebted”. “There are a lot of liabilities to cover within Premier, underlying trading profits are going backwards and we still question if there is much or anything in aggregate for equity shareholders,” they said.Premier’s shares, which had lost 95 per cent of their value by October this year, rose on the news of a bidder for the business, trading at a high of 19.25p today before falling back. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndoHealthyGem”My 600-lb Life” Star Dropped 420 Pounds, See Her NowHealthyGemUndoZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldUndo Premier Foods confirms bid talks for Quorn are on Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

As the doughnut graph shows, 68% of mobile revenues come from betting.Interestingly, while by region Europe takes the bulk of global mobile revenues, Asia/Middle East has a higher percentage of its region’s gross win coming from mobile. This is likely to be due to the fact that in some countries, particularly those in Asia, fixed line broadband was slow to develop and many users skipped desktop altogether and adopted mobile as their first internet device.H2 Gambling Capital is the gambling industry’s leading consulting, market intelligence and data team.

The shocking truth about Warren Buffett now and what it means for investors

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Warren Buffett held Berkshire Hathaway’s annual meeting on 2 May. The event is popular with investors because it gives us an opportunity to hear what the great investor has been thinking. This year, he held the meeting virtually to comply with social-distancing restrictions.And what he’s been thinking may be shocking if you’re used to his usual rhetoric. Normally, Buffett says things like: “Be fearful about stocks when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”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…Warren Buffett has switched around his own adviceWe might expect that he’s been filling his boots with shares during the recent stock market crash. But he hasn’t. Not much, anyway. Instead, he’s been selling in a big way. To be specific, he dumped all his holdings in airlines. His usual approach of being greedy when others are fearful has gone out the window in this case.But that’s understandable. The other great pillar of Buffett’s approach is to buy high-quality enterprises. Put the two requirements together and we have: buy the shares of good-quality businesses when their shares are selling cheap. And that usually means shopping for shares when a temporary set-back knocks trading, profits and the share price.With the airlines we have two problems. Firstly, they’re not good-quality businesses. They are, instead, highly cyclical businesses. Secondly, the set-back in the industry may not be temporary. Indeed, it’s possible consumer habits may change forever because of the pandemic. Airlines may never again see the levels of business they saw before the crisis.But the shocks don’t end with airlines. Buffett hasn’t been greedy with any kind of stock during the market crash. Why? Buffett explained at the meeting: “We have not done anything because we haven’t seen anything that attractive.”We have opportunities that Buffett doesn’t haveDoes that mean we private investors should be sitting on the sidelines during this pandemic refusing to buy cheaper-looking shares? Not necessarily. Buffett’s position needs to be set in context.Berkshire Hathaway’s recent quarterly earnings report revealed the company is sitting on a cash pile of around $137bn. And Buffett said at the meeting: “We are willing to do something very big. I mean you could come to me on Monday morning with something that involved $30bn, or $40bn, or $50bn. And if we really like what we are seeing, we would do it.”And I reckon that’s the crux of the problem. Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway is so big, and has so much capital to invest, that it’s hardly worth him bothering with investments that don’t take a lot of the capital available. Why? Because, even if smaller investments do well, they’ll hardly move the dial when it comes to Buffett’s overall portfolio.But for investors with less money to invest, I reckon there are many decent opportunities available on the stock market right now. However, I share Buffett’s caution about certain sectors, such as travel, hospitality, and others. This is, indeed, a stock-picker’s market. And, for me, that means it’s time to go forth and pick shares to invest in. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

Light and horizon play together within the design of this home located on the mediterranean shore. The shining sun, a long wire thin line, and the blue of the sea serve as everlasting starting points that guide the architectural plan from a historic beginning to its current moment. Within this edifice resonates a rich history of architectural creation.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe vernacular of its design is embedded with western, modern principles, but also those of the Romans, that of the mandate period, and that of Israel today.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn the 1930s and 1940s it was the international style that reigned supreme and tens of thousands of buildings were made in its image, most of them in Tel Aviv and the rest split between Jerusalem and Haifa. The unique architectural style that eventually arose in Tel Aviv was a by product, among other things, of that imported by the students of German Bauhaus, which many Israeli architects had been schooled in.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe style gained acceptance in Israel for its universality, cleanness of design, functionality, and rejection of symmetry which appealed to the nascent nation’s desire to forge a new society while still remaining a part of the world.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThree main factors influenced the adaptation of global architecture in Israel. The economic milieu popularized cheap materials such as silica bricks and white plaster exteriors that further emphasized the sun of the blue israeli sky.Save this picture!Section CCThe building upon empty, open land void of an urban context allowed for a new and iconic style of low rise buildings which stressed the horizontal.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe climate influenced the size of buildings’ openings and encouraged long exterior terraces enclosed by socalled “apron walls” which directed the flow of air.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe language of design created through the terraces and balconies of Israeli architecture became themselves an icon of identity sharpened and perfected through reiteration. The balconies, horizontal handrails, and broad openings not only suited the desert climate but they provided a rich visual image without offending the style from which they were hewn.Save this picture!© Amit GeronEchoing within this home is the style of international architecture. Alongside the functional, modern character of its design one feels the builtin masses, the asymmetry, and the dismantling of space all of which project upon its urban environs.Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe outer, linear envelope of the building evokes both the international style of the moment while subverting it to its own purpose; protecting the building from overheating under a desert sun.Save this picture!First Floor PlanNot only do the windows soak in a resplendent view but they provide the comfort of technological developments, which have emerged in the last few decades. An example of this are the westernfacing windows and doors who are shaded by a permanent frame allowing for the uninterrupted pleasure of those who peer through them. They act as a perfected detail of the exterior that innovatively frees the architect from the climatic restrictions.Save this picture!© Amit GeronIn contrast to these frames, the southern windows are framed by thin, broad, metal lintel, creating an extra dimension from which to view the sea while simultaneously protecting the glass.Save this picture!Section AAThen just as today the horizon which disappears into the expansive blue before us provides a sense of natural transformation.

Hoosier Farmer Participates in National Food Dialogue

Held in Boston, the dialogue brings together farmers, consumers, activists, and food industry representatives to discuss some of the more controversial issues in food production today.  Thursday’s discussion focused on the size of US farms, Are there too many big farms? Should we have more small farms?Bruce Rominger, a large fruit and vegetable producer in California, said big farms are not bad farms, “I think we can make the argument that we have a small carbon footprint for the amount of food we produce. On our farm, we are planting hedgerows; we are investing in high tech irrigation systems; and, as a result, we can produce more food with less water and in California that is a big deal.” He added that larger farms can employ experts to improve their operations and keep their environmental impact safe.

She said her small Shelby County farm allows  her to opportunities that a larger operation could not, “One thing you can do with a small farm is you can do unique things. You can buy smaller packages of seed or even special seed that a large farm could not.” She added that sometimes she can get good deals on leftover inputs from large farms because she only needs a small amount. By Gary Truitt – Oct 24, 2013 Facebook Twitter Bill Lucky, a corn and soybean producer in Nebraska, said size is relative to what you produce and where you produce it, “In Western Nebraska, you need a lot of land for a cow-calf operation. While in the east as a row crop farmer, you can average 500 to 1000 acres.” He said topography and weather also dictate the size of an operation. Home Indiana Agriculture News Hoosier Farmer Participates in National Food Dialogue The two hour discussion which was streamed live on the internet also covered sustainability, urban farming, hunger, and the concept of “food justice.” Beyer shared how Indiana farmers and farm groups are involved in feeding hungry people and working with food banks.  She said these kind of dialogues are vital to keeping lines of communication open between producers and consumers, “Our agriculture and food system will continue to be the best in the world because we are having these kind of discussion about GMOs and antibiotics.  We are going to continue to do what is best — not just for our farms, but also for the people who eat what we produce.”last_img read more

Move-in day could come early to Greek Village

There are seven buildings under construction right now. The buildings will hold either two or three chapters each, said Leeman. Once phase two is finished, the four dorms on Pond Drive will be demolished and replaced by the rest of the new buildings.Leeman said the project has been on budget.“It’s early in the process for the housing, but right now, everything’s tracking very well,” Leeman said.The physical plant built weather delays into the schedule.“Most contractors work on a five-day schedule,” Leeman said. “But, you’ll see them out there on Saturdays and makeup schedules, so if it rains, they have rain-out on one day but they can get on the site. They’ll probably make that rain day up by working Saturday.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Construction in Worth Hills may be finished earlier than expected.

Banogu had a team-high 14 tackles for a loss, good for fourth in the conference. He also recorded seven and a half sacks on the year. Combined with first-team selection Mat Boesen’s conference-leading 11.5 sacks, TCU houses the nation’s top duo in combined sacks.Banogu, safety Nick Orr, linebacker Travis Howard and cornerback Ranthony Texada highlighted the other four first-team selections on defense for the Frogs.Howard was an honorable mention for defensive player of the year and earned a first-team selection for the second straight season.

Volleyball swept by Iowa State

first_imgTwitter Sam Fristachi ReddIt printTCU volleyball had chances to capitalize but ultimately fell to Iowa State on the road in three sets Wednesday night.“We competed hard tonight the first two sets but had too many unforced errors to close out either one of those opportunities,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “Our floor defense did a good job…but we needed to anchor that with making some more positive plays at the net, both blocking and attacking.” After Iowa State and TCU traded 4-0 runs in the first set, it looked like the Frogs found a winning combination at the net.  Sarah Swanson and Audrey Nalls had back-to-back blocks against Iowa State attacks to put the Frogs in front 16-12, but the Cyclones stormed back to steal the set 25-23.Nalls filled the stat sheet, finishing with a team-high three kills to go along with her three blocks and five digs in the first set. Sophomore Élan McCall, playing at libero, finished with seven digs, her season-high in a set.TCU recorded 20 digs in the first set, a season-high for digs in a single set.In the second set, the Cyclones got off to a fast start with an 8-3 lead, but the Frogs would win the next 10 of 15 points to tie the score, 13-13.Although the Frogs fought towards the end of the second set, Iowa State prevailed 25-23.Ashley Waggle (seven) and Katie Clark (six) combined for 13 of TCU’s 18 kills in the second set. Waggle recorded a hitting percentage of .700 during that time.The Cyclones took control of the final set, preventing space for a TCU comeback. Iowa State won the final set 25-12. Nalls led the team with three kills this set. TCU finished with 53 digs, its most in a three-set match this season. On top of that, the Frogs hit six aces with just six service errors. This was the first time this season the team has hit the same or more aces than errors in a match.The Horned Frogs look to end their two-match losing streak at 1 p.m. Saturday when they face off against the Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence.
