PAGCOR reports 11.7% hike in gaming revenue for 2019

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 11th February 2020 | By contenteditor The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has reported an 11.7% year-on-year increase in gaming revenue for 2019, resulting in its total tax and corporate social responsibility contribution for the year rising above PHP56bn for the year.Total revenue from gaming amounted to PHP75.75bn (£1.16bn/€1.37bn/$1.50bn) in 2019, compared to the prior year’s PHP67.85bn total, beating the regulator’s full-year projections by PHP1.33bn.However, total PAGCOR revenue included PHP36.27bn in other income, comprised predominantly of money raised through the sale of land owned by the regulator in Entertainment City to Sureste Properties Inc, a subsidiary of Bloomberry Resorts Corporation.When the PHP32.71bn paid by Sureste Properties was stripped out, PAGCOR noted, revenue would still have been up 11.2% year-on-year.In 2019 revenue came from slot machines, electronic bingo and table games operations, as well as regulatory fees from offshore gaming sites and fees from licensed casinos. This saw PHP35.92bn generated for the National Treasury, with a further PHP3.78bn generated through the 5% franchise tax on licensees.A further PHP1.79bn was paid to the Philippine Sports Commission, the governing body for sports in the country, while the Dangerous Drugs Board, which develops policy for dealing with illegal drugs, received PHP60m. The Board of Claims, a Department of Justice agency which grants compensation to victims of unjust imprisonment and violent crimes, received PHP118.9m.PAGCOR also provided PHP123.3m in cash incentives to athletes and coaches competing in international sporting events, while cities that host casinos operated by the corporation received PHP445.7m.The year saw the Philippines face pressure from China to limit or ban online gambling, following PAGCOR’s decision to impose a temporary halt on the issuing of new Philippines Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) licences in August 2019.However, this appears unlikely to be expanded into a full prohibition on igaming, with President Rodrigo Duterte saying that POGOs were an important source of jobs and tax for the country.China looks set to continue its efforts to crack down on igaming in 2020, warning in January that it would target countries from which operators targeting players in the country are based.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The volatile ITM Power share priceI’ve previously explored ITM Power’s business. But as a quick reminder, the company designs manufactures and sells electrolyser technology that extracts hydrogen from water. The process doesn’t produce any greenhouse gas emissions and is relatively cheap. Thus it is becoming more favourable than traditional methods of extracting hydrogen from fossil fuels.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…In 2020, the ITM Power share price exploded by more than 425%. What happened? First, the UK government unveiled its plans to eliminate the country’s carbon emissions, placing particular focus on using green hydrogen technology. Meanwhile, ITM Power continued to publish encouraging progress reports on its various projects worldwide, despite the disruptions from Covid-19.It also completed the sale of a 2MW electrolyser to Linde Plc for its H2Pioneer project in Austria. And just a few weeks ago, the company submitted its planning application to build the UK’s largest electrolyser facility in partnership with ScottishPower. Further information about this application is expected to arrive by the end of Autumn later this year. Overall, it seems that ITM Power is progressing relatively well. It’s securing new contracts and forming new partnerships, so I’m not surprised to see the share price going up overall. But today’s sudden 10%+ drop comes after the announcement that the business is moving its hydrogen refuelling stations into a separate entity. This move has added quite a bit of uncertainty about whether the management team intends to sell off the division once the separation is complete. While there is no indication of this, I think it’s fair to say the market is not particularly pleased with this latest move.Investor expectations are exceptionally highDespite what ITM Power’s £2.9bn market capitalisation might suggest, the company is still relatively small. In fact, last year, the firm only generated £3.29m in revenue. That’s a price-to-sales ratio of nearly 850!Needless to say, the expectation of this business delivering strong performance in the future is very high. But based on the most optimistic outcomes of its projects, city analyst forecasts indicate a total revenue of around £32m in 2022. While this does place the forward price-to-sales ratio to a more palatable 87.5, that is still a lofty valuation.Seeing a high level of share price volatility in companies with high expectations from investors is not uncommon. And if ITM Power is unable to deliver on investor expectations, then I think its share price could see sharp declines once again.The bottom lineAs promising as ITM Power is as a business, my opinion on its price remains unchanged. It simply looks too expensive for my portfolio, especially when other similar growth opportunities are available at much lower prices. Therefore the company is staying on my watch list for now. Zaven Boyrazian | Tuesday, 4th May, 2021 | More on: ITM The ITM Power (LSE:ITM) share price has been quite volatile over the last couple of months. It reached its all-time high towards the end of January this year, only to collapse by nearly 50% two months later. Since then, it has started rising again. And over the last 12 months, the stock up by more than 220%. But once again, the share price started falling today. What is causing all this volatility?

Sugar Gum House / Rob Kennon Architects

first_imgArchDaily Architects: Rob Kennon Architects Area Area of this architecture project Sugar Gum House / Rob Kennon Architects photographs:  Derek SwalwellPhotographs:  Derek Swalwell, Courtesy of Rob Kennon ArchitectText description provided by the architects. The Sugar Gum House sits on the edge of Bass Straight’s rugged coastline, at the base of the rolling hills which connect the Otway ranges to the beaches. The property operates as a sheep and cattle farm and extends back to the fringe of the Otway forests. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWindowsKalwall®Facades – Window ReplacementsDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceThe brief for the project was to replace the small weatherboard shack that had served the current owners so happily for 34 years, and been home to a family with six children before that. The shack had been built without nails, using dowel joints in a timber beam construction. It sat simply on bluestone blocks without any foundations, but had not moved in one hundred years. The shack was well sited on dry land above a creek and took advantage of fresh clean water from a nearby spring.  The shack had only two small windows facing the ocean and no direct north sunlight into the living spaces. It served as a simple shelter from the heavy winter rains and cold south westerly, and sometimes easterly, winds. The floor plan was inward looking, typical of a late 1800’s early settler’s refuge. The living space was in the middle of the house, communal and compact, with the fireplace the focus.  Winters were spent huddled around the inefficient fire which compensated with charm.  Summers were spent on the south facing verandah protected from the occasional hot north overland wind. Living in the shack was perhaps little better than camping.  However, such was the strong history and charm of the place that it was not until the mirror bush grew through the ancient brick chimney, which then fell down, that the owners finally decided to rebuild. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellAccordingly the brief for the design of the new house was to enhance the daily experience of this unique site, perched meters from thundering waves, overlooking white sandy beaches to the south, and lush green hillsides scattered with cattle and sheep to the north. In addition the design had to protect the house from the renowned ‘Apollo Bay Howlin’ Wind’ and relentless winter rain, but at the same time keep the house cool, all summer long. The house also did not want to overbear the landscape, nor disrupt the steep natural beauty and contours of the land. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe old pre-solar house was, nevertheless, particularly well sited.  After much debate on alternative locations the decision was made to rebuild in exactly the same position. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe design of the new house comprises two pavilions, one sleeping and one living. The house, which is made to cater for a broad range of visitors, comprises an open plan kitchen, living and dining area, three identical bedrooms with a shared bathroom, master bedroom with an ensuite and walk in robe.  There is a separate powder room, laundry and mudroom. To the east of the living pavilion and adjoining the kitchen is a deck which captures the eastern morning sun, ocean views, and provides protection from the north winds in summer. To the west of the sleeping pavilion is the deck through which one enters the house, sheltered from ocean winds and bathed in northern sunlight, with views both up to the contoured green hills, and sheltered views to the ocean through the heavily glazed living pavilion. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe house is made of a modular and repetitious steel structure which allows it to have less impact on the coastal landscape and seemingly float above it. Each three meter grid is either fully glazed or clad in local sugar gum shiplap cladding. The full extent of the house has highlight windows to the north which let in northern sun and capture views back up to the high green hills. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe low maintenance steel, glass and sugar gum design is primarily driven by the demand of the site and aims to be neutral and at ease in its context. In summer the house is protected from the north sun by a large cantilevered eve. In winter, the house is warm with the large double glazed windows effectively acting as heaters into the entire living pavilion and four bedrooms facing north. The very efficient French Philippe Chemise fireplace is still the conversation point at night. Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellUnlike the old shack, the house has a consciously outward focus giving the owners a strong connection to the constantly changing seascape and landscape. Days can be whittled away cooking and entertaining at the house, all the while being able to remain enchanted by the massive power of the waves, so close by. The new house is still the great refuge after a hard days farming, but in a very different, and more spectacular way. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rob Kennon ArchitectProject gallerySee allShow lessEcho Ridge Duplexes / El Dorado IncSelected Projects’Wind Fountain’ Competition Entry / Gembong Reksa KawulaArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/284112/sugar-gum-house-rob-kennon-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/284112/sugar-gum-house-rob-kennon-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeRob Kennon ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLorneHousesAustraliaPublished on October 22, 2012Cite: “Sugar Gum House / Rob Kennon Architects” 22 Oct 2012.

They had a four course meal and ennoyed a variety of entertainment including performances by the Rochester Cathedral Choir and the Band of the Life Guards.BEN’s Director of Fundraising and Communications, Charles Davis, believes that the charity was extremely fortunate to be able to proceed with the 2008 Ball as planned, as many similar charity and industry events have been cancelled or postponed due to lack of support. “Since its inception in 1927 the only time the Ball has not taken place was during World War II,” he commented.Nevertheless, the total raised is a significant drop from previous years. Davis said that “Traditionally the annual Ball is BEN’s largest fundraiser, generating a sum in the region of £270,000”. The charity did anticipate a reduced income for this year’s event.www.ben.org.uk 2008 BEN Ball raises £160,000last_img read more

Wealthy young philanthropists focus on gap between rich and poor

first_img A survey of 1,428 wealthy philanthropists in six countries revealed that nearly half (44%) of those under 30 surveyed cited this issue, compared with 16% of over 45s surveyed. The latter preferred to give to causes supporting the older generation.Wealthy philanthropists aged under 30 are more concerned with the gap between rich and poor people than philanthropists aged over 45, according to research for Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).The survey by wealth consultancy Scorpio Partnerships covered donors with an average net worth of more than £1.5 million in the UK, USA, Australia, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia. It looked at their attitudes to money, in particular looking at how those attitudes differed between those under 30 and those over 45.Personal involvementA third (33%) of those under 30 wanted to get involved personally with the charitable causes they supported, compared to 16% of those over 45. Of younger donors, 38% got involved in giving circles, networks where people collectively give to a specific cause.

U.S. gay activist honored in Cuba

first_imgRev. Troy Perry and Mariela Castro EspinFrom its initiation in 2007, Cuba’s yearly International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia has marked the serious, ongoing effort of the country’s National Center for Sex Education (Centro Nacional de Educación Sexual or CENESEX) to eliminate the vestiges of sex/gender prejudice in Cuba, the harmful residue of 500 years of first Spanish and then U.S. colonial domination.Mariela Castro Espín, the daughter of Cuban President Raúl Castro Ruz and Cuban revolutionary leader Vilma Espín, is the founder and director of CENESEX and a member of the country’s National Assembly. Castro Espín used the occasion of the 10th International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 12 to present U.S. gay activist the Rev. Dr. Troy Perry with a CENESEX award in recognition of his lifelong efforts in the struggle for LGBTQ liberation.As a spiritual leader, Perry has, for many years, acted in strong opposition to the homophobic and transphobic positions of the world’s major patriarchal religious organizations. His Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, originally a gathering of 12 people in his Los Angeles living room, now encompasses over 300 congregations in 16 countries, safe spaces which meet the spiritual needs of many LGBTQ people. Perry was an early advocate for marriage rights for same-sex couples and performed such marriages long before they were legal in the U.S.‘End the U.S. blockade now!’Perry described the award ceremony at Havana’s Karl Marx Theater on his website: “By the time the 10th Cuban Gala Against Homophobia and Transphobia started, over 4,000 people were present. … The program started with music and then my introduction was made and I spoke for ten minutes on my journey in [U.S.] America as a gay man and drew a parallel between the LGBTQ community in both our countries in the 1960s when gay men were arrested and sent to prison.“He continued that following the presentation of the award “was the most beautiful experience of entertainment from the LGBT community I have ever witnessed! Ballet dancers from the National Cuban Ballet Company, a Flamenco dancer, who tore down the house! Jazz musicians, the choir and dancers from the Santería religion, drag performances, and numerous songs by Spanish vocalist, Falete, and more.”In a statement to the press before leaving for Cuba, Perry denounced the murderous blockade that the U.S. imposed on Cuba soon after the revolutionary overthrow of the Batista dictatorship. “I am still saddened that the government of my country, the United States of America, still has not lifted the embargo against this wonderful country and its people. I call, again, for our government to make that change now!” (PR Newswire, March 7)In the Introduction to her highly informative book, “Rainbow Solidarity in Defense of Cuba,” Workers World Party leader and internationally known transgender activist Leslie Feinberg wrote: “The history of the Cuban Revolution is a process from which we who have not yet made our revolutions have a great deal to learn about the struggle for sexual liberation, based on concrete historical conditions.” And while we continue to mourn the long illness and ultimate loss of our beloved Comrade Leslie, the process she alludes to continues, and continues to inspire a new generation of LGBTQ revolutionaries.McCubbin is the author of “The Roots of Lesbian and Gay Oppression,” a Marxist analysis first published by Workers World Party in 1976, before the progressive movement in general was able to embrace a consistently supportive view of the first-wave Gay Liberation movement.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
