The loss is a more than four-fold increase on 2009.The bank reported an impairment rate of 28 per cent in its property and construction loans. That amounts to a cost of €7bn – up substantially on the €2.7bn cost seen in 2009.The figures add to the woes of a lender that has already received €7.2bn in aid from the Irish government and was judged to need a further €13.3bn capital injection in recent stress tests. It is 93 per cent state-owned.The bank saw its mortgage arrears worsen as mortgage-holders struggled to make progress on their payments: arrears jumped 214 per cent to €3bn, €188m of which is based in the UK.As part of the Irish government’s reforms to the banking industry, Allied Irish will also undergo a dramatic operational restructuring to split its core and non-core operations. The non-core bank will manage €25bn of net loans versus €61bn in the core bank, with the former to be run down over time.The ailing bank also saw its core tier one capital ratio plummet below the seven per cent Basel III minimum. Allied Irish recorded a ratio of only four per cent for 2010 compared to 7.9 per cent the year before.Allied employs about 1,250 people in Britain and the majority of its redundancies are expected to be voluntary.

Atemi enjoys record revenue and NDCs in Q2

first_imgMarketing & affiliates Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Atemi enjoys record revenue and NDCs in Q2 14th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Topics: Marketing & affiliatescenter_img iGaming affiliate marketing specialist Atemi has revealed it was able to achieve a record $13.3m (£10.3m/€11.2m) in revenue in the second quarter, due in part to a significant increase in new depositing customers (NDCs) during the period.Revenue in the three months through to 30 June was 42% higher than in the same quarter last year, as well as 14% more than the first quarter of this year, when revenue reached $11.7m.Atemi also saw a year-on-year increase in terms of NDCs, with this rising 72% to 42,500, which represented another new record for the affiliate business.Reflecting on the quarter, chief operating officer Manuel Berndoerfler said the growth came despite the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, explaining that operators switched their marketing budgets from sports betting to casino due to sports events being postponed and cancelled amid the crisis.“We have maintained and grown these budgets in Q3, even with the Premier League’s return, which is really positive,” Berndoerfler said. “We understand that we send the highest intent customers of any affiliate partner and ‘casino’ has proven a much better investment opportunity than sports over the past six months.”Atemi founder Richard Skelhorn added that the business expects sports to return to pre-pandemic levels over the next 12 months – provided a second wave of the virus does not occur.Skelhorn also said Atemi remains committed to supporting its partners and brands, revealing it plans to spend over $50m marketing on its gaming comparison sites over the coming year. This includes a $19m marketing campaign for its Betcompare brand.“We look forward to strategically deploying our capital to further support our growth in the 20/21 season and remain hopeful that things return to normal by the end of the year, without seeing a second wave,” Skelhorn said.“Should that happen, we are perfectly placed to pivot client budgets and any uncertainty plays to Atemi’s strengths being a media buyer as we are able to switch focus from one product to another with short notice.“Ultimately the next twelve months for Atemi is about being committed to the growth plan but flexible enough to adapt to any headwinds and help our clients invest and grow, pandemic agnostic.” Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

RBS 6 Nations: Ireland analysis

first_imgSign of dejection: O’Driscoll reflects on Ireland’s first loss to Italy in the Six NationsBy Claire Glancy“IS IT time to go back to the drawing board Declan?” The question posed after so many basic errors saw Ireland defeated by England.“No” was the simple answer given. He was right too. For Ireland the drawing board is no longer the issue, it’s the architect.End of the road: Kidney will now ponder his futureA few months ago people would have said that was harsh for a coach who led Ireland to their first Grand Slam in 61 years but the truth is since the highs of 2009, when Declan Kidney was crowned IRB International Coach of the Year, Ireland have consistently failed to reach their potential.We always talk about the talented footballers the nation produces. Every year there’s at least one that catapults into the spotlight. In 2012 Simon Zebo and Craig Gilroy’s arrival on the international stage caught so much attention they only had to play 80 minutes for people to start talking about them being Lions.We’re also witnessing the end of the “Golden Generation” who promised so much as they headed to the last Rugby World Cup. Ronan O’Gara suffered the embarrassment of being dropped by his former school teacher, Paul O’Connell is fighting against his rugby body clock, while Brian O’Driscoll is the only one of those veterans guaranteed his place in the green jersey. Even he is not immune though, unceremoniously stripped of his captaincy after a decade. The perception we’re given is he wasn’t happy about it either. Add to that the number of injuries throughout the squad and it’s of little wonder that Ireland are in disarray.This was glaringly obvious in Rome. When Keith Earls had to go off with an injury, swiftly followed by Luke Marshall and then O’Driscoll who was sidelined for a stamp, panic swept through the side. In fairness all those changes could be unsettling but in the fifth round of a championship players should be able to compose themselves as they will have practiced similar scenarios. One player who managed to keep his cool and subsequently keep Ireland in the game was Paddy Jackson. He was given a hard time after the Scotland match for missing kicks but in Rome the young Ulsterman slotted over five penalties from six attempts. Follow Claire Glancy on Twitter @claireglancy Promising start: Zebo during Ireland’s win over WalesIt summed up Ireland’s tournament when an injury to replacement Luke Fitzgerald forced Peter O’Mahony to switch from the flank to the wing. And to finish they played the latter stages with just thirteen men. It was a terrible end to the tournament and could prove a final act for Kidney whose contract is up in the summer.For the players hoping to be Lions this summer at least many still have at least one more chance. Warren Gatland is due to announce his squad on 30th April, the week after the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals. Strong performances then are the only way they will be able to oust players who have edged ahead of them in the Six Nations.Declan Kidney will always be the man who orchestrated one of Irish Rugby’s greatest successes and for that we’ll always be grateful. But now I think it’s time for a new architect, a different design and hopefully an eye-catching finish.Ireland’s Injured XV: 15 Luke Fitzgerald, 14 Tommy Bowe, 13 Luke Marshall, 12 Gordon D’Arcy, 11 Simon Zebo, 10 Johnny Sexton, 9 Eoin Reddan, 2 Richardt Strauss, 4 Dan Tuohy, 5 Paul O’Connell, 6 Stephen Ferris, 7 Chris Henrycenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Tales of the Calcutta Cup

first_imgSet to the background of political unrest and rampant nationalism, the English headed to Edinburgh full of expectations, such was the free-scoring, dominating rugby the side had played up to that point in the tournament. They were hunting a Five Nations title, a Grand Slam, a Triple Crown and a Calcutta Cup. But so were the Scots.As Brian Moore reflected in his book Beware of the Dog: “As we arrived at Murrayfield, I could tell the atmosphere was going to be different and it was not going to be pleasant.” When David Sole led Scotland out of the tunnel, to an achingly slow march, the crowd lost it.What followed was a slobber-knocker and Scotland won the contest 13-7, the game punctuated by one edge-of-your-seat moment: Tony Stanger chased down an arcing kick by Gavin Hastings to score the try that would crush English hopes.RAIN CHECKThe Scots started the first-ever Six Nations, in 2000, in abysmal fashion. Underestimating the Italians, the talismanic fly-half Diego Domínguez kicked Scotland to bits in a 34-20 win in Rome. They lost the next three games, too.However, when England came to Murrayfield in the last round, Scotland were a totally different beast. The English were effectively already champions and were again chasing a Grand Slam, but the Scots mastered tough conditions and defended psychotically, while fly-half Duncan Hodge put in the performance of his life.Reflecting on the weather that day, Scotland captain Andy Nicol tells us: “It was better not to have the ball in those last 15 minutes, the rain was so bad. But I had never heard an atmosphere like it in Murrayfield – the fans were cheering every single tackle like it was a try.”Hodge kicked four penalties and converted a score of his own; a soggy slide into the goal that even he worried may have resulted in a spilt ball… The try was given and Scotland rained on the English parade once again, 19-13.So downhearted were England that they opted not to collect the Six Nations trophy on the pitch post-match.ENGLISH RECORDSJust a year after England’s Grand Slam hopes were drowned in 2000, they inflicted a record defeat on the Scots, registering their biggest-ever win over them – a margin of 40 points.In a 43-3 rout, Lawrence Dallaglio and Iain Balshaw got two tries apiece, Will Greenwood and Richard Hill one each, and Jonny Wilkinson kicked 13 points.That 40-point margin was repeated in 2017, with England obliterating Scotland at Twickenham, 61-21. It was a victory that saw England equal the Tier One record of 18 consecutive victories. As our own Stephen Jones wrote in The Sunday Times afterwards: “England have been wonderful, nothing less. The theory is doing the rounds that in this Six Nations they have not been as good as previously. This was true but it is not remotely significant. In their crushing of Scotland, they showed how brilliant and ruthless they can be.”Roaring: England scoring trie in 2017 (Getty Images)WILKINSON’S CALCUTTA CUPIt had been more than three years since Jonny Wilkinson had last played for England, but when he faced Scotland in 2007 it was like he had never been away. In fact, he was better than that.Wilkinson had endured all of that time out and needed operations on his neck and shoulder, to remove an appendix and to correct a hernia. He had torn an adductor, damaged his medial ligaments in both knees and lacerated a kidney. Then, on his well-fated comeback, he went and scored a record 27 points.Racking up the numbers, he also got 14 stitches in a burst lip, but that pales into background memories when you realise that amongst his points he got the full house: penalties, conversions, a drop-goal and a try. Ably backed by England’s pumped-up pack, the fly-half had one for the ages.“Wilkinson, if he was not up there already, now belongs in that rarefied stratum,” wrote Rob Kitson of The Guardian. “It is not just England who are lucky to have him but the entire rugby world.”THAT PASS…In 2018 Scotland scored three tries to England’s one in their first Calcutta Cup triumph since 2008. Their 25-13 victory at Murrayfield shook the competition. Forget the former rearguard, spoilers’ performances throughout Scottish history, this one was fun and quirky and confident.The standout moment was a try by wing Sean Maitland created by a long, looping miss-pass from Finn Russell that magically found centre Huw Jones in space deep in his own half. The ball was eventually worked out to Maitland to score. It’s a moment that will make highlight reels for years to come.The post-match festivities will also go down in Scottish folklore. The images of a swaying Greig Laidlaw, with his tie round his head and his shirt flapping open, singing, eyes closed, with Russell patting him on the shoulder, have become a gold-standard meme for Scotland rugby fans. Yet another cracker amongst the Tales of the Calcutta Cup. The oldest rugby rivalry in the world has created legendary and controversial moments. We recount the best stories from the annual clash between England and Scotland. This feature first appeared in Rugby World in March 2019 Tales of the Calcutta CupWHEN SCOTLAND rock up to Twickenham for this year’s Six Nations, they will be battling for the right to hold the Calcutta Cup. The trophy is named after now-defunct Calcutta RFC, who formed in India in 1873 after the relative success of a Christmas Day fixture on the subcontinent in which 20 Scots and 20 English players reputedly competed the year before.However, according to the legend, when the team disbanded in 1878, the remaining silver rupees in the club’s coffers were melted down to make a trophy – the Calcutta Cup – and gifted to the RFU. In 1879, Scotland and England met in Edinburgh for the first Calcutta clash. It ended in a draw.Since then, there have been plenty of ups and downs; big scores, shocks, whitewashes. So  let’s take a look at some of the rivalry’s standout moments…THE FIRST ONEIn the first-ever Calcutta Cup match the two sides met at Raeburn Place, home of Edinburgh Academicals, on 10 March 1879. However, the trophy itself had already had records from previous England-Scotland ties engraved on its plinth, dating back to 1871. That stretch included three draws, three England wins and two victories for Scotland.The first Calcutta contest ended 3-3. Scotland’s Ninian Finlay scored a drop-goal while England kicked a goal through Lennard Stokes. They had a try by George Burton, but back then a try wasn’t worth any points, it just gave you the chance to shoot at goal.We know a thing or too about exciting draws after last season…BILL’S BULLIESIt took 23 years for England to win a Grand Slam after their triumph in 1957, but when they did it again in 1980 it was after a display of forwards’ brilliance.There had been naysayers knocking the quality of this England side, but Bill Beaumont (above) led a pack of bullies who gave their backs a platform to see this out with relative ease at 30-18, away from home. Such was the power of the display that Beaumont was carried aloft from the field by his team-mates.The game will also be remembered for the impressive hat-trick by wing John Carleton, Clive Woodward’s coruscating runs and fine kicking from Dusty Hare.LAST TWICKENHAM UPSETScotland have not enjoyed a win at Twickenham since 1983.But that year the Scots had a corps of fine talents, particularly in the back-line. In their 22-12 win, a recalled John Rutherford moved play along, Keith Robertson was making breaks and scored a drop-goal, while Roy Laidlaw dotted down for a score that the master Bill McLaren described as “one of the great Calcutta Cup tries”.After a few draws and near-misses away, the Scots of the early Eighties were not holding any fears. As fly-half great Rutherford said of that tussle years later: “There was no psychological barrier about playing at Twickenham – we went down there expecting to win and that’s what we did.” Simple.ALIVE AND KICKINGIn 1988 the two sides played out a match of terminally dull rugby, with England triumphing 9-6. After the stale match was decided by kicks, Scotland coach Derrick Grant is said to have commented: “England may have been the birthplace of rugby but today they effectively killed the game stone dead.”But that’s not why you know about this game, is it? You know about it because of what happened afterwards.As was tradition at the time, the captain of the winning side would take the cup, it would be filled with drinks and handed around. England No 8 Dean Richards took his team out with Scotland’s John Jeffrey in tow and, so the story goes, the pair decided to fill the trophy with whisky and dump it over Brian Moore’s head. Chased outside by the angered hooker, Richards and Jeffrey scarpered into a cab and disappeared into the night, still in possession of the heirloom.They later passed it around, dropped it and, according to some, booted it. At one stage a doorman at an Edinburgh establishment was left trying to tease the battered trophy back into shape.Jeffrey was subsequently banned for five months by the SRU. Deano? A week.A replica has been used ever since.THE POWDER KEGMasterfully chronicled in Tom English’s book The Grudge, the deciding fixture in 1990 had all the ingredients of a cracker.

A copy of this letter was also sent to all members of Congress.Dear President Biden and Vice President Harris:On behalf of Bishops United Against Gun Violence, a network of more than 100 bishops in The Episcopal Church representing more than 1.1 million Episcopalians in more than 4,200 congregations spread across 314 Congressional districts, we write to thank you for your longtime support of sensible gun violence measures. We are grateful, especially, for your recent call to Congress to enact background checks on all gun sales, ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminate immunity for gun manufacturers.Thank you, too, for your pledge to take executive action when necessary to stop gun violence, and to establish a task force to focus on the connection between mass shootings, online harassment, extremism, and violence against women. We applaud these efforts and ask that you and your administration urge Congress to enact the kind of powerful legislation we need to save the lives of more than 37,000 Americans who now die each year from gun violence.We stand ready to assist your administration in advocating for and serving as champions for policies that can help end what we call the unholy trinity of poverty, racism and gun violence. To this lifesaving work, we bring strong partnerships with national and community gun violence organizations across the country and an engaged network of Episcopalians in our congregations and communities. Together, we seek to witness to our belief in a God of life, even in the face of death.In our struggle against the evil of gun violence, we offer several contributions:We provide spiritual support for those living with gunshot wounds, with grief, with fear and with the temptation of hopelessness. We advocate for broader and easier access to mental health services for those at risk of suicide.We teach, bringing an ethic of Christian compassion and concern for the common good to bear on debates regarding unjust economic and legal structures, public safety, individual rights and our responsibilities to one another as children of God.We hold public liturgies—vigils, processions, and prayer services—to commemorate the dead and inspire the living.With the support of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations in Washington D.C., we are persistent advocates for common sense gun safety measures like background checks, holding gun manufacturers accountable, closing the Charleston and hate crime loopholes, and other policy proposals that you have outlined in your gun violence platform.Although the last four years have brought little progress toward curbing gun violence, we commend House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro and former chair, the Honorable Nita Lowey, for their perseverance in securing $25 million in the FY2020 appropriations bill for gun violence prevention research following their March 2019 hearing on the public health aspects of gun violence. We encourage this federal investment in public health research that can help safeguard the lives of all of God’s people in the United States while respecting the Second Amendment, and we urge you to allocate more research funding in future budgets even as we work together to enact your legislative agenda to end gun violence.Thank you for your commitment to this holy work.

Steve Morgan Foundation makes £1m pledge for type 1 diabetes research

first_img Tagged with: Major gift The Steve Morgan Foundation marked November’s Diabetes Awareness Month by making a further charitable pledge of £1million to support type 1 diabetes research. Businessman and philanthropist Steve Morgan, and his wife Sally who is a trustee of the Foundation, have had their family life impacted by type 1 diabetes since 2017 when Sally’s son, Hugo, was diagnosed with the condition at the age of seven.The Steve Morgan Foundation had already, in 2018, pledged £3m to JDRF’s mission to cure the condition.The £1million pledge will help fund JDRF’s research programme, which includes immunotherapy studies. These aim to reset the misfiring immune system response seen in type 1 diabetes. The research programme also includes ‘smart’ insulin research – which could one day allow people with type 1 diabetes to have just one injection a week, instead of several a day.The pledge will also enable JDRF to accelerate vital clinical trials and ensures research can be boosted in an attempt to cure type 1 diabetes, and to enhance current technologies, helping to make them available on the NHS.Karen Addington, Chief Executive of JDRF in the UK, said:“JDRF identifies the most promising research opportunities internationally, and collaborates with world-leading researchers here in the UK, to deliver those breakthroughs needed. The support of Steve, Sally and the Steve Morgan Foundation will help us push the boundaries of medical science, to move closer to the type 1 diabetes cure.”Steve Morgan commented: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Local newspaper correspondent beaten in her office in Guanajuato state

first_img Help by sharing this information 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 5, 2021 Find out more Newspaper reporter Karla Silva was beaten up by three assailants yesterday in her office in Silao, a town in the central state of Guanajuato, where she works as the local correspondent of El Heraldo de León.“Three men went to our correspondent’s bureau in Silao and attacked her, beating her bloody, threatening her and telling her to stop ‘pissing everyone off’ with her articles,” El Heraldo de León deputy editor Carlos Martínez Vertí told Reporters Without Borders.They had visited Silva’s office several times earlier in the day, asking for her by name, harassing her assistant and taking a computer and four mobile phones.Silva’s reporting has been very critical of the Silao municipal government, headed by a mayor who is a member of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). She has written about the poor services in Silao, the high crime rate, wasteful use of resources and the lack of transparency.Local officials have often complained about her coverage and have repeatedly tried to obstruct her work. She said after yesterday’s attack that she was sure that her assailants were sent by one of these officials.“Silva, who is now hospitalized, has filed a complaint with the local prosecutor’s office while we have already reported this attack to the special prosecutor for attacks on freedom of expression,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We urge the authorities to move quickly to identify and arrest not only the assailants but also, and above all, those who gave them their orders.”The attack on Silva came just two days after Victor Pérez, a journalist with the magazine Sucesos, was murdered in Chihuahua state, and shots were fired at newspaper editor Ignacio Domínguez’s home in Veracruz state. A threatening message was also left inside a pig’s head on Domínguez’s doorstep.Mexico is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

EAT: Gino’s Pizzeria

first_imgGino’s Pizzeria 94 Gloucester Green (01865) 794446 Italian food and Italian restaurants have taken Oxford by storm over the last couple of years, bringing with them a superior offering of pizza and pasta to that previously supplied by the dismal doughy Pizza Hut. At the very pinnacle of Italian eateries, sits Gino’s. For some reason, and I have yet to fathom why, this place isn’t particularly well known. I think it’s in the marketing. Gino’s serves the best pizza and pasta I’ve ever had outside Italy and yet it’s very often empty. This is a sad, sad thing. I’ve often chatted with the manager about how he could better market the place but he seems more interested in the quality of his sauces. The silly man should learn the lesson from Pizza Hut that quality is apparently irrelevant. And it’s not as if the punters are going for cost over taste, Pizza Hut is hardly cheap and, of all the pizza restaurants in Oxford, Gino’s is certainly the best value. Two courses won’t cost you more than a tenner. The quality of pizza is all in the dough. Gino’s dough actually tastes homemade. It’s soft and flavourful and not smothered by the toppings. The pasta at Gino’s is actually as good as that offered in the restaurants of Florence and Siena. The Spaghetti Amatriciana is the best: chilli sauce (not too hot so as to overwhelm the other ingredients) with bacon. A perfect three-course meal at Gino’s would start with mussels (avoid the bruscetta, I have to admit it’s quite poor and you can certainly get better at ASK or Pizza Hut), move on to the Spaghetti Amatriciana and finish with the chocolate fudge cake with cream – heaven on a plate. Perhaps the best feature of Gino’s is its atmosphere: a tiny, cosy place with paintings of Italy on the ceiling and walls, all tucked away next to Glouster Green bus station. Cheap, cute and succulent – what more could you ask for?ARCHIVE: 5th week TT 2004last_img read more
