The province of Corrientes in Argentina has published regulations for online gambling in the province. Licence fees will be determined at a later date by the ILCC.

Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I am interested in FTSE 100 incumbents Compass Group (LSE:CPG) and Ashtead Group (LSE:AHT) and their current state of affairs in the market crash.Risk or reward?A major issue will be the fact that a lot of construction sites are closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. This will be having a huge impact on Ashtead. 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…The market crash saw nearly 50% wiped off its Ashtead’s share value. The FTSE 100 index itself lost nearly 25%. On 19 February, Ashtead’s share price traded at 2,765p per share whereas the market bottom on 23 March saw a per share price of 1,335p. At the time of writing, Ashtead’s share price is over 1,900p per share. Ashtead has performed admirably over the past few years. Revenue has increased year on year for the past five years which is a good indication of its strength. Profit levels increased between 2015 and 2018, falling slightly in 2019. It has also increased its dividend per share year on year for the past five years.Ashtead released a trading update yesterday. It confirmed that its full-year results, to 30 April, should not be too badly impacted by Covid-19. It also confirmed that it has close to $4bn in credit facilities available to it to assist through this turbulent time. Ashtead reported a freeze on recruitment, a pause on its share buyback scheme, and reduced planned capital expenditure. The company confirmed it would not be using the UK government’s Coronavirus Job Retention scheme. There was no mention of dividend payments, which may be a good sign. I would not rush to buy cheap shares right now. The primary reason is that no one know when when construction levels will return to normal. Furthermore, Ashtead’s revenues, in large part, come from the UK and the US, two countries badly ravaged by this pandemic. There are less risky options in the FTSE 100 for me.FTSE 100 winnerThe market crash saw close to 50% of the Compass share price value wiped off. Just after mid-February, shares were trading at close to 1,950p per share. Fast forward to the date of the FTSE 100 market crash bottom, 23 March, and shares closed at 1,002p per share. At the time of writing, its share price had climbed up close to 1,300p per share. Compass has taken the step of releasing monthly Covid-19 updates. In its most recent update it confirmed 55% of its business is closed due to the lockdown. It reported that it was attempting to lower its cost base by around £450m per month. This was being done through a mixture of staff furloughs, reductions in salaries and working hours, and by limiting overtime and the use of contractors and temporary workers. Importantly, it did confirm it possessed enough liquidity to avoid financial ruin. Compass confirmed it has close to £3bn in credit facilities. Another step it took was to postpone interim and final dividend payments, but will review this later. For me, I expect Compass Group to recover nicely, along with the FTSE 100, once the lockdown ends. The reason I say this is because catering services will always be required. There is some short-term pain to be expected. However, if you are patient, I do feel 2021 could be a normal year of profitability and increasing dividend per share payments for Compass.last_img read more

Leonardo Ghiraldini in trouble after making contact with Cian Healy’s eyes

first_imgSunday Oct 2, 2011 Leonardo Ghiraldini in trouble after making contact with Cian Healy’s eyes In what was a great first half battle between Ireland and Italy, the physical aspect crossed the line a little twenty minutes in, as Italian hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini placed his fingers over the eyes of prop forward Cian Healy. Healy was clearly incensed as he lashed out at Ghialdini, creating a situation that was tricky to manage for referee Jonathan Kaplan. As you can see, he stopped the game and had a word with captain Brian O’Driscoll, stating that he didnt see anything and Healy shouldn’t have lashed out.“How is he supposed to react?” said Paul O’Connell to Kaplan, who obviously acknowledged the severity of the incident. In many ways you could see that Healy, despite lashing out initially, was actually fairly controlled, all things considered. You can hear a slight hint of sympathy from commentator Alan Quinlan, who himself missed out on the British & Irish Lions tour because of an eyegouging ban, but there’s no doubt the hooker was in the wrong.In a time when any sort of contact with the eyes is highly frowned upon, you can be sure that Ghiraldini will be sticking around in New Zealand for some time longer, specifically to face a discplinary hearing and subsequent heavy ban. He hasn’t been cited yet however.What are your thoughts on the incident, and the length of the ban he will no doubt receive?

‘Sister Schubert’ keeps rolling along and going strong

The ladies will perform on April… read more “Business grew and I went to my dad and asked him if he could move out the rest of the furniture and let me have the whole warehouse,” Barnes said. “He was willing so I had a real commercial kitchen with a 30×20-foot freezer. The freezer was so big it was unreal. I thought that I would never need anything bigger than that.”Barnes began doing her own marketing and one of her first big orders came from Ingram’s Curb Market in Troy and later the Piggly Wiggly.“I’d go to grocery stores with a pan of rolls and ask them to let me put my rolls in their stores,” Barnes said. “Most of them didn’t say no.”Her big break came when she walked into J.T. Bess grocery store on Mulberry Street in Montgomery.“Mr. Bess said he would try a case and in less than a week he called for more rolls,” Barnes said. “He told me that people were coming in his store that he had never seen before to get the rolls. Word of mouth. Sister Schubert rolls were selling by word of mouth.”Sister Schubert was on a roll.Barnes realized the potential for her Gommey’s rolls. She needed a bakery, a much bigger bakery. She went looking, first to Troy and then to Brundidge.“As disappointed as I was, I believed a door would open for me somewhere else nearby,” Barnes said. “The mayor of Luverne, John Harrison, called and asked if the city of Luverne could make me a proposal. In 1994, Luverne became the home of Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls. It was a huge risk but it was an affirmation of my faith and my vision for the company.”Barnes thought the 25,000-square-foot bakery would provide all the space she would ever need. But by 1998, the company had completed two expansions and was making more than a million rolls a day.“I couldn’t have found a better town for our bakery and we’ve got wonderfully dedicated employees,” she said. “Some have been with us for 20 years and many for 10 years or more. We’re family and Luverne is home for us.”Barnes’ dream of owning a bakery became a reality on August 29, 1992 in Troy. It was not an overly ambitious dream; in fact, it was a rather simple one.Today, Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls has three locations, Luverne, Mobile and Horse Cave, Kentucky. Sister Schubert’s is a $100 million a year business. Barnes still has to pinch herself every now and then to convince herself that she’s not dreaming.“Sister Schubert’s bakery has been blessed. I have been blessed,” she said. “I never make any business decisions without praying about them. A lot of hard work has gone into the bakery and our employees have bought into our vision for the company.”Barnes gives much of the credit for the success of Sister Schubert Homemade Rolls to her husband, George Barnes, who expanded the bakery’s distribution to include major grocery chains throughout the South, and to Lancaster Colony Corporation, a specialty foods company based in Columbus, Ohio, that bought Sister Schubert’s stock in 2000.“When I was first approached about selling our stock, I wasn’t interested but eventually we did sell to Lancaster Colony,” Barnes said. “We sold for two reasons. Lancaster Colony and Marzetti, its specialty food division, had all the resources to propel Sister Schubert to a national brand. They also had a history of purchasing family-run companies and then keeping the families on board to run the company. I wanted to be on board.”Barnes said it is important for her to be involved in Sister Schubert rolls because she is committed to remaining true to her roots.“Sister Schubert rolls have maintained the same home-baked quality and taste that my grandmother’s rolls had when they were made with loving hands in her kitchen,” Schubert said. “We use fresh ingredients and a special flour and each roll in placed in the pan by hand, giving Sister Schubert rolls a very personal touch.”And, for many, Sister Schubert rolls are not about bread. They are about memories.“It’s so heartwarming when people come up to me and say that Sister Schubert’s rolls brought back memories of their grandmother’s or mother’s yeast rolls,” she said.“They say that they never thought they would experience that taste again and, there it was in Sister Schubert’s rolls.“My grandmother, Leona Henderson Wood, called her rolls ‘everlasting’ and that’s our hope for Sister Schubert rolls. Pure and simple, our hope is for everlasting rolls. Sponsored Content But, had not been for that frozen food fair at St. Mark’s, Barnes might not have risen to the top of the yeast roll industry.“Sarah Lawrence knew about my rolls and asked if I could try freezing some of them for the frozen food fair,” Barnes said. “I was willing to try. That first year, I made 20 pans and we sold all 20 pans. The next year, we took orders for the yeast rolls and got 200. The third year the orders reached 300 and I said, ‘Stop taking orders. I can’t do anymore.’”After the third frozen food fair, Barnes evaluated her “little bitty” catering business, which she called The Silver Spoon, and weighed it against the potential for yeast roll sales. The rolls won out.Barnes’ first “bakery” was her home kitchen. She then moved to the sun porch and then to the back half of her dad’s furniture warehouse in Troy. But she never dreamed so grand as to imagine that one day she would be the founder of a bakery that would bake nine million rolls a day to supply markets in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.From the time she could stand on a stool and reach the countertop, Barnes, a Troy native, was the helping hands in the family kitchen.“I’ve always loved being in the kitchen,” she said. “The kitchen was, and is, my favorite room in the house. I came from a long line of good cooks, on both sides of the family. My heritage is cooking. Patricia “Sister Schubert” Barnes recognized the employees who have been with Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls since its beginning. From left, George Barnes, vice president of operations; Kay Petery, payroll; Bruce Roberts, sanitation manager, Patricia Barnes, founder; Carolyn Hill, production supervisor; David Williams, maintenance; and Bill Caldwell, plant manager.Patricia “Sister Schubert” Barnes isn’t exactly sure about the dream she had 20 years ago. Maybe it wasn’t even a dream. Maybe it was just that she was doing what thousands of other young women around the country were doing – baking or making their pride and joy dishes to help raise funds at church bazaars.That’s how it started anyway.Barnes baked 20 pans of Parker House style rolls for the frozen food fair at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Troy. She used her grandmother’s family recipe, confident that, if people tried her Gommey’s rolls, they would like them.

Coronavirus live updates: Symptomatic hair stylist potentially exposes dozens of people

first_imgnito100/iStockBY: WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 338,000 people worldwide.Over 5.2 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.The United States is the worst-affected country in the world, with more than 1.6 million diagnosed cases and at least 96,007 deaths.Today’s biggest developments:US nears 100,000 deathsSymptomatic hair stylist ‘potentially directly exposed’ 84 clientsHere’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern. Please refresh this page for updates.7:18 a.m.: Hertz files for brankruptcyCar rental company Hertz filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Friday amid the global economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic.The company cited the “sudden and dramatic” decline in demand and future bookings as millions across the U.S. stayed at home to help stop slow the spread of the coronavirus.Hertz said all of its stores, along with its subsidiaries like Dollar, Thrifty, will remain open after the filing. All reservations, promotions, vouchers, etc. are expected to continue as usual, the company said.“With the severity of the COVID-19 impact on our business, and the uncertainty of when travel and the economy will rebound, we need to take further steps to weather a potentially prolonged recovery,” Hertz President and CEO Paul Stone said in a statement Friday. “Today’s action will protect the value of our business, allow us to continue our operations and serve our customers, and provide the time to put in place a new, stronger financial foundation to move successfully through this pandemic and to better position us for the future.”While travel is nowhere near normal levels, there is slight momentum towards a rebound as many states begin reopening. TSA screened 318,449 people on Thursday, the highest number of passengers since March 23. Compared to the same day last year, it is still down around 88% when the agency screened 2,673,635 people.5 a.m.: Missouri hair stylist ‘potentially directly exposed’ 84 clients to COVID-19A symptomatic hair stylist in Springfield, Missouri, may have exposed 84 clients and seven coworkers to the novel coronavirus over the course of eight days this month.The hair stylist had recently traveled within the Show-Me and, after returning to Springfield, gave haircuts at a Great Clips from May 12-20, according to the Springfield-Greene County Health Department.“This scenario is well within our capacity for staff to contact trace and hopefully contain,” Clay Goddard, director of health for Springfield-Greene County, said at a news conference Friday. “But I’m going to be honest with you, we can’t have many more of these. We can’t make this a regular habit or our capability as a community will be strained and we will have to reevaluate what things look like going forward.”All potentially exposed individuals will be notified and offered testing, Goddard said. Officials are hoping for a minimal spread of COVID-19 from this incident because all parties concerned were wearing masks.He said as the state and local communities reopen, it’s important for citizens to realize the social responsibility they have to others. Don’t assume your slight cold or allergies are just that; make sure to get tested, Goddard said.If people don’t do this, it will put a strain on the local health care system and could force officials to rethink their economic reopening plans.“We are moving out of a phase where we took enormous sacrifice as a community. There are economic hardships as a result of that,” Goddard said Friday. “We’re in a new phase of this disease where we’re going to walk that tight rope between disease control and economic harm. If we are going to work sick and sharing this illness with others, that’s not a good approach.”Missouri Gov. Mike Parson lifted many of the state’s restrictions and its stay-at-home order on May 4.The state has more than 11,844 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, with at least 677 deaths.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Effect of body size and ration on specific dynamic action in the Antarctic plunderfish, Harpagifer antarcticus Nybelin 1947

first_imgThe feeding energetics of the Antarctic spiny plunderfish (Harpagifer antarcticus) were examined with respect to the effect of both ration size and animal size. Fish of different sizes were fed single meals at one of two ration levels (2.5% wet body mass and satiation) to determine the maximum aerobic scope that could be elicited by the specific dynamic action. The excretion rates of ammonia, urea, and fluorescamine-positive substances were also monitored. Neither fish size nor ration had any effect on the factorial aerobic scope of feeding, which suggests that cellular metabolic processes associated with feeding were satiated by relatively small meals. The factorial scope in ammonia excretion was affected by both ration and fish size, indicating that respiration and excretion respond to a meal independently. The duration of the specific dynamic action response (240-390 h) increased with fish size but not ration, whereas both the time to reach the peak oxygen consumption and the duration of the ammonia response increased with ration but not fish size. The percentage of the ingested energy that was expended following feeding (the specific dynamic action coefficient) was high at low rations (approximately 56%) but lower (roughly 10%) at satiation rations. This is because the absolute energetic cost of processing a meal was largely independent of meal size. The change in O:N ratios after feeding was very ration-dependent; at low rations, O:N ratios increased, whereas at satiation rations, the O:N ratios decreased.last_img read more
