Icap revenue up despite subdued markets

first_img Icap it has shrugged off “generally quieter markets” in the six months to the end of September to report revenue up nine per cent at £867m.Profits before tax rose two per cent to £183m from £179m in the same period last year, and it increased its dividend by three per cent to 5.27p a share.“During a period of generally quieter markets Icap has delivered good revenue and earnings growth driven primarily by our strong electronic broking franchise,” chief executive Michael Spencer said.The UK broker, which trades currency, bonds and swaps globally, said in an emailed statement on Wednesday its electronic broking and post-trade services businesses accounted for more than half its profit for the first time.Electronic broking profit was up 24 per cent on last year to £62m, its post-trade line was up 30 per cent to £9m, while profit from its traditional voice broking business grew just two per cent, to £107m.

French racetracks to be closed under new government advice

first_img Tags: Race Track and Racino 20th May 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address Horse racing Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter A number of French racetracks look likely to be shut down only a week after resuming activities, with the country’s government preparing new rules for the racing industry’s return to action.While horse racing returned from 11 May, flat and steeplechase racing’s governing body France Galop has been informed by the government that it intends to to publish rules for the reopening of racetracks in the coming days.Racing had been suspended since 17 March, as a result of novel coronavirus (Covid-19).This will specify ‘green zones’ – administrative regions in which racing can continue – and ‘red zones’, where it must shut down.According to France Galop, there will be four red zones. This includes Ile-de-France, the home of nine tracks including Longchamp and Vincennes; Hauts-de-France, where there are 11; Grand-Est (six); and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté (four).France Galop and harness racing governing body LeTrot, and racetrack association la Fédération Nationale des Courses Hippiques therefore said they “deeply regret” that these 30 tracks would therefore have to close once again.They pointed out that the strict social distancing measures set out to prevent the spread of Covid-19 had been “scrupulously respected”, with regular inspections revealing no issues.Nevertheless, the tracks will be expected to close, most likely from Thursday (21 May). Certain prefectures such as Paris, in Ile-de-France have already informed France Galop and LeTrot of the ban on racing being imposed.As such each governing body’s team is working to reorganise the racing schedule for May and June, and will look to relocate any events in the red zones to others. Further changes will be made as soon as these regions are permitted to host racing again.

Harley Davidson ready to motor with Glendale Raptors in Major League Rugby

first_imgThe Latest issue of Rugby World is in shops now.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Opening up: Harley Davidson breaks against Seattle Seawolves (pic by Justin Purdy) The Glendale Raptors winger is eyeing success in the second season of MLR Despite the inevitability of the question, Harley Davidson laughs.“People have always told me you have to do something big with a name like that; you can’t be bagging groceries for the rest of your life,” the flying wing says of his stand-out name. “I also wrestled when I was younger, in high school. Guys would check out who they’re up against, see a name like Harley Davidson and be like: ‘What?!’”The second season of Major League Rugby kicks off on 27 January, with Davidson and last year’s beaten finalists Glendale Raptors renewing acquaintances with the reigning champions, Seattle Seawolves. Having worked throughout the off-season to improve handling skills, team discipline and cohesion, the aim is to go one better than last term.The man with the motorcycle-themed name is not haunted by the loss in the final last year, though he admits to the odd flashback of a knock-on in the first half, with the try-line begging. He is keen to go again, emboldened by another season as a full-time rugby player – a career that the kid from Boise, Idaho felt he would have to go abroad to chase.On the line: Harley Davidson with the ball by the sideline (pic by Justin Purdy)So is Glendale-Seattle going to become the MLR’s big rivalry?Considering the tie, Davidson says: “It’s still pretty early in the league. There are two new teams this year and then two or three more the following year, so it’s tough to say there will be a rivalry between us. There are so many good teams and the competition is that much better this year.“Seattle’s a great team, they are very disciplined, they have a great defence. But I think there will be a little bit more motivation when we do go up against them…”Motivation, it seems, has never been an issue for the quicksilver back.Related: Christian Wade starts his NFL journey in FloridaThe 25-year-old first picked up rugby at Capital High School in Boise, after begrudgingly watching brother Richard play and realising he was into it. He honed his game – then at scrum-half – at the Snake River club, where coach Mike Saunders then put Davidson in touch with Life University.The back-three burner believed that after his time with Life he would have to head overseas, to Ireland where there were contacts at Blackrock or New Zealand, and hope to keep working his way up. But then elite rugby in the States became a reality and Colorado was calling.“The (pre-existing professionalism at Glendale) was one of the main reasons that motivated me to come out to this team,” says Davidson, who tended bar at Life and delivered glass when he first arrived in Colorado. “They already had that professional standard, they had a good group of players and I saw where I would grow the most by coming here.Try time: Davidson scores against Houston SaberCats (pic by Justin Purdy)“If I didn’t have the opportunity, I’d probably still be at Life University pursuing my Masters or maybe even the chiropractic programme. I’ve always had the mentality of never really giving myself a Plan B, that way I’m all-in on something I’m really passionate about. It’s worked so far!”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Related: Dallas boss Mike Ford thinks Germany need more investmentWorked is the right word. While many players in the MLR can focus on the game ‘full-time’, a large number still hold down jobs and juggle a gruelling training and work schedule. Davidson admits to being “blessed” that he can live off rugby. But he has worked at it, and he concisely explained his Plan A mentality. Where does that drive come from?“Growing up it was just my mom (Julie) taking care of us. She was a single mom taking care of four boys. She worked two jobs.“We didn’t have much but we were always thankful for what we had. Like at Christmas my mom wouldn’t be able to do a lot, so she would find a way – we thought it was special. She’d take us to the dollar store and we got to pick out toys. That was fun for us; we didn’t think anything of it or what our financial situation was.“Things weren’t handed to us. If you wanted something you really had to work at it and that’s something I pride myself on, my work ethic. I got that not only from my dad, who is a hard worker, but from my mom. She worked a day job and a graveyard shift.“Seeing that work ethic from my mom throughout my whole life is definitely what inspired me. It’s something I think about whenever I do anything. I’ll never do anything half-assed.”Forwards practice: a Raptors training session (pic by Justin Purdy)Which brings us back to this season; to facing Seattle again.The Raptors are roaring after the exertions of pre-season, Davidson believes. He is ready to motor too. His ultimate goal is to make his way into the USA Eagles squad and he has been asking capped team-mates to assess his game so he can work on elements the national selectors value.Of course, the key to all of it is to perform for Glendale.Last season young fans were shouting his name, which was a pleasant surprise. He has been approached by strangers in the gym, asked if he is that Harley Davidson.Imagine what will happen if he goes full throttle this season?last_img read more

Glasgow v Munster live stream: How to watch from anywhere

You can download the digital edition of Rugby World straight to your tablet or subscribe to the print edition to get the magazine delivered to your door.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Munster are rattling along this season, Glasgow are struggling for points. Don’t miss the action from Scotstoun as the Scottish side tries to spring a Pro14 upset tonight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Glasgow v Munster live stream: How to watch from anywhereAn unusual preparation for Munster, who fly in and out on the day for tonight’s Guinness Pro14 match away to Glasgow (8.15pm). When they did likewise in 2016, they lost 27-24. But the Irish province are in a good place, leading Conference B with five wins out of five.Munster make four changes to the side that beat Ospreys 38-22 eight days ago. Billy Holland captains the side as he joins Jean Kleyn in the second row. Fineen Wycherley switches to the back row, with Jack O’Sullivan starting on the openside for the first time. Gavin Coombes, a hat-trick scorer against Ospreys, continues at No 8.Ben Healy returns to the ten jersey while Calvin Nash starts on the wing. JJ Hanrahan is on the bench and will make his 100th Pro14 appearance if introduced. And hooker Rhys Marshall is also a replacement after recovering from a recent thigh injury.Red-hot: Gavin Coombes has been absolutely immense at the back of Munster’s pack this season (Inpho)Asked about the form of fly-halves Healy and Hanrahan, senior coach Stephen Larkham told the Munster website: “I’m very happy with the way they are controlling the game. They’ve both got a really good skill-set.“We’re definitely moving towards a system where they’re taking full control of the team once you’re on the field. I think Ben and JJ do a really good job at that. Ben’s still growing, he’s still young. But his understanding of how we want to play has gone through the roof.”Glasgow head coach Danny Wilson is able to call upon the services of Nick Grigg for the match following the centre’s release from Scotland’s Autumn Nations Cup squad. Robbie Fergusson shifts across to inside-centre.Lock Lewis Bean, who made his club debut in Ulster last time out, will make his first start for the Warriors. And Sean Kennedy will make his first start at Scotstoun since November 2012, the scrum-half lining up alongside Pete Horne at half-back.Smarting: Glasgow’s Nick Grigg plays at 13 tonight and has a point to prove to Scotland’s selectors (Inpho)Tommy Seymour and Robbie Nairn come into the back three after missing the match in Belfast, and scrum-half Caleb Korteweg is set to make his first home appearance for Glasgow after being named amongst the replacements.Glasgow have lost four of their first five matches this season, not ideal preparation against last season’s semi-finalists. “Munster are a good side and a tough challenge, but we know we have the players to be able to go out there and execute,” Wilson told glasgowwarriors.org.“It’s nice to welcome Nick back into the squad. Although he’ll be disappointed to have been released by Scotland, this is a chance for him to get game time and he’s keen to make an impact in the midfield.”The teams’ previous meeting was a humdinger back in October 2018. George Horne finished two brilliant team tries by the Warriors but Rory Scannell’s long-range penalty clinched a 25-24 Munster home win with the last kick of the match. Watch highlights of that here.Glasgow: Glenn Bryce; Tommy Seymour, Nick Grigg, Robbie Fergusson, Robbie Nairn; Pete Horne, Sean Kennedy; Aki Seiuli, Grant Stewart, Enrique Pieretto, Lewis Bean, Rob Harley, Ryan Wilson (capt), Tom Gordon, TJ Ioane.Replacements: 16 Johnny Matthews, 17 Alex Allan, 18 D’arcy Rae, 19 Hamish Bain, 20 Fotu Lokotui, 21 Caleb Korteweg, 22 Brandon Thomson, 23 Niko Matawalu.Munster: Mike Haley; Calvin Nash, Rory Scannell, Damian de Allende, Matt Gallagher; Ben Healy, Craig Casey; James Cronin, Kevin O’Byrne, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland (capt), Fineen Wycherley, Jack O’Sullivan, Gavin Coombes.Replacements: 16 Rhys Marshall, 17 Josh Wycherley, 18 Keynan Knox, 19 Jack O’Donoghue, 20 Tommy O’Donnell, 21 Nick McCarthy, 22 JJ Hanrahan, 23 Dan Goggin.Here’s how to find a reliable live stream for Glasgow v Munster wherever you are…Glasgow v Munster live stream: How to watch from the UKGlasgow v Munster, which kicks off at 8.15pm this evening, will be shown live on Premier Sports 1 in the UK.center_img Premier Sports show every Guinness Pro14 match live in the UK.

He said, “We haven’t used the word discipleship because in Spanish the word formation explains it better. Our faith has got to express itself in the life we live, so we have set up a team of people to visit every parish in the diocese and help them look at where they are and what resources might help them move forward in discipleship.”The small team of lay people including Paul Tester and Anna Sims, both working in Peru with CMS, and Peruvian lay workers Lizbeth Varillas and Sonia Chambi, have spent the past year working with a whole range of parishes from shanty towns in the city of Lima to remote rural parishes in the Andes. The team has been helping parishes look at how they are in the light of six strands which includes the Lord’s Prayer, the 10 Commandments, the Apostles Creed, a personal relationship with Jesus, Scripture and the SacramentsBishop Bill explained, “If you go around to many of our 17th century English churches you see the Lord’s prayer, the Ten commandments and the Apostles’ Creed up on the walls. People had to learn them for Confirmation in those days for spiritual and pastoral reasons. It was because belief equalled faith – so the way we behave is because of what we believe – like a kind of curriculum. We took those three things and criss-crossed or wove them with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. You don’t have anything without that. Then Holy Scripture, which is absolutely essential, along with the sacraments. Then the Church – that’s very important. The biggest heresy in western Christianity is when people say to me, ‘I’m a Christian but I don’t go to church.’ You never found Christians in the Bible who didn’t belong to Church – Christians and Church go together – because it says in Ephesians 5.25 ‘Christ loved the Church.’ Some people don’t like that.”Lizbeth said the huge differences across Peru meant there couldn’t be any set way of enabling discipleship. She said, “In Lima there are more churches, and clergy can share experiences and support each other, but in the regions people are more isolated with big distances between churches. Peru is such a vast country with almost 10 million people (a third of the total population) living in and around the capital, where there are extremes of poverty and wealth and also crime. Out in the rural areas traditions and culture are very strong.” One of the challenges to helping people connect their daily lives with their Christian faith is the way people have been brought up to think that religion is just about going to church on Sundays and not seeing it as affecting the way they live.”Anna said she had however been encouraged by one family she had met in Chiclayo where she worked with Lizbeth. “Only the mother and daughter went to church in the family we stayed with when we were first there. The vicar gave them a Bible, which the 13-year-old was reading and then asking questions. When we visited again last week the husband had started going to church too and getting involved. They told us how talking about their faith and discussing it had made them realise how Christ wanted to be part of their relationships and that their communication is better and they have a better family.”The team are excited about the future and how their work with parishes will help build up a new depth of faith and action in churches across the diocese. Anna said using the six strands as a kind of spiritual thermometer they spoke with church members, clergy and leaders and asked people to fill out questionnaires as well as conducting interviews with clergy. “It was a bit like market research, I suppose,” said Anna. “We’re hoping when we look back on what we’ve found we will be able to see some patterns that will help. But we do recognise every church and situation is different and has different needs. One thing we are finding is that people really value taking time to talk about these things and getting feedback. A lot of what we’ve done has been opening up conversations for people to think about being disciples and what that might mean.”This article first appeared in the February 2016 edition of Anglican World, the quarterly magazine of the Anglican Communion.

Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Cannon Ball (Dakota du Nord)] « Nous savions que vous alliez venir, qu’un jour vous alliez venir ici et commencer à poser des questions à propos de votre gouvernement », déclare une ancienne de la tribu, Regina Brave, sa longue tresse grise tombant sur l’inscription « navy » écrite en lettres capitales jaunes sur le haut de sa veste de cuir noir. « Nous sommes tous des enfants de Dieu ; les noirs, les rouges, les jaunes, les blancs, tous sans exception ».Regina Brave, une Oglala de la réserve de Pine Ridge dans l’État du Dakota du Sud, a pris le micro dans un gymnase de Cannon Ball (État du Dakota du Nord) le 2 novembre, la veille du jour où plus de 500 membres du clergé et laïcs de différentes confessions ont rejoint les opposants à l’oléoduc de Dakota Access dans un élan de solidarité pour témoigner dans la prière et la légalité, de façon pacifique et non violente.La réunion du 2 novembre a servi d’entraînement. Le matin du 3 novembre – alors que le soleil se levait et que la température n’était que de quelques degrés – les soutiens interconfessionnels sont entrés dans le camp d’Oceti Sakowin, le plus grand des trois camps, et ont formé un cercle autour du feu sacré qui brûle 24 heures sur 24 au centre du camp.Les 524 soutiens interconfessionnels représentant vingt confessions religieuses ont répondu à l’appel du révérend John Floberg, demandant que les leaders religieux manifestent leur solidarité et leur témoignage à ceux qui protègent les terres et l’approvisionnement en eau de la tribu. John Floberg est le prêtre qui supervise les trois missions épiscopales de la partie de la réserve de Standing Rock située dans le Dakota du Nord ; il y a six autres églises missionnaires dans la réserve du Dakota du Sud.Les opposants ou « protecteurs de l’eau » comme ils préfèrent s’appeler, campent depuis des mois sur trois sites situés sur les terres fédérales, juste au sud de la réserve de la nation Sioux de Standing Rock dans le centre-sud du Dakota du Nord. Les Amérindiens représentant 200 tribus nationales et internationales campent aux côtés des écologistes et des militants contre le changement climatique qui soutiennent leur protestation pour la protection du site.Le 23 octobre, dans son appel à la solidarité, John Floberg a demandé que 100 membres du clergé de l’Église épiscopale s’associent aux protestations. Le 3 novembre, leur nombre était supérieur à 500. Le nombre officiel de 524 est significatif parce qu’il représente le nombre d’années depuis que la Doctrine de la découverte a donné aux explorateurs chrétiens la possibilité de réclamer leurs droits sur les terres qu’ils ont découvertes.Le matin du 3 novembre au centre du camp Oceti Sakowin, les leaders religieux chrétiens de confessions épiscopale, luthérienne, presbytérienne et autres confessions et religions – représentant toutes des confessions qui ont rejeté la Doctrine de la découverte – ont témoigné du rejet par leur confession du document du XVe siècle. Ils ont ensuite demandé aux anciens de la tribu de s’avancer et de brûler une reproduction de la Doctrine de la découverte, ce que les anciens ont fait dans des pots et un seau près du feu sacré.« Il nous fallait le faire publiquement avant même de venir ici et dire que nous manifestons notre solidarité », explique John Floberg, lors d’une interview avec Episcopal News Service plus tard ce jour là. « Il nous fallait être aussi justes que possible envers les nations qui sont représentées dans le camp, et nous ne nous attendons pas à ce que tout le monde accepte nos excuses, accepte notre renonciation, il nous faut vivre avec cela ».Une manière pour les épiscopaliens et les autres de vivre avec cela est de demander au gouvernement des États-Unis d’honorer ses traités territoriaux avec les Amérindiens, poursuit-il. La protestation pour Standing Rock est axée sur deux problématiques : la qualité de l’eau et les terres sacrées.Article complet en anglais.Note du rédacteur : Une galerie de photos du rassemblement de la Nation sioux de Standing Rock se trouve ici.

New Zealand hold off late charge by spirited France side

first_imgTuesday Nov 12, 2013 New Zealand hold off late charge by spirited France side New Zealand held off a late France surge at the Stade de France, hanging on to maintain their unbeaten record and leave with a 26-19 victory over Les Blues. Winger Charles Piutau scored a try and set up Kieran Read with a brilliant piece of play. Both Dan Carter and Morgan Parra kicked 14 points for their respective sides, but it was the two tries to one of New Zealand that edged them ahead, withstanding a spirited late French effort.France had their tails up with a series of scrums in the final minutes, but they couldn’t force their way over and snatch a draw. Manager Philippe Saint-Andre felt that it could have been different.“The players are sad because we had all the ingredients for a victory but we lacked accuracy, especially in the first half when we should have been ahead,” he said to reporters post match.“We have courage and desire, but it’s the little details that make the difference. We were good in the scrum, apart from the last one, when we’re penalised.“We have the character. At some point we were 14 points behind and we find the resources to come back in the game and we almost snatched the draw. It shows this team has courage,” he added.France meet Tonga next, while New Zealand have a big meeting with England at Twickenham.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

Call for defamation to be decriminalised following editor’s release

first_img China’s diplomats must stop attacking media over coronavirus reporting June 21, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for defamation to be decriminalised following editor’s release News April 1, 2020 Find out more News (Photo: www.eldiario.pe) December 4, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information PeruAmericas News Follow the news on Peru Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerablecenter_img February 10, 2017 Find out more News Receive email alerts Organisation Provincial newspaper editor Alejandro Carrascal Carrasco was released from prison on 18 June on the orders of the supreme court in Lima after serving five months of a one-year jail sentence imposed last January in a trial marked by flagrant irregularities. He was convicted of libelling a local official.The editor of Nor Oriente, a weekly based in Bagua in the Amazonian region of Utcumbamba, Carrascal is a staunch defender of the local indigenous community. He been targeted by the authorities every since rioting that led to the arbitrary closure of Bagua-based community radio station La Voz de Bagua Grande June 2009. His release is clearly good news but what Peru now needs to do is decriminalise press offenses. Another Peruvian journalist, Oswaldo Pereyra Moreno is still being held on a defamation charge and must also be released.———————————-13.01.2010 – Editor of Amazonian weekly gets one-year sentence for defamation to go further PeruAmericas RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the one-year jail sentence that a court in Bagua, in the northeastern Amazonian province of Utcumbamba, passed yesterday on Alejandro Carrascal Carrasco, the editor of the regional weekly Nor Oriente, on a change of “aggravated defamation” in a case dating back to 2005.Carrascal fainted when the court issued its verdict and was rushed to hospital. The sentencing took place in his absence. He is now in Bagua’s San Humberto prison.“This is the second case of a well-known Peruvian journalist being imprisoned for defamation, following that Magaly Medina, who was given a five-month sentence in October 2008,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Carrascal’s trial seems to have been marred by irregularities. He says he was not notified of the warrant for his arrest and he was in hospital when the sentence was issued.”“There is every reason to suspect that this is really an act of political revenge against the editor of a publication that is very critical of the authorities,” press freedom organisation continued. “Carrascal defended the indigenous population and did all he could to protect the Amazon. This case highlights the urgent need for press offences to be decriminalised.”Carrascal was widely respected in the Bagua area because of the stands taken by his newspaper, which is distributed throughout the department of Amazonas. He was convicted of defaming a local official, Victor Feria.Local journalists and relatives of Carrascal condemned his conviction as an act of “revenge.” The National Association of Journalists (ANP) protested against his “arbitrary detention.”Radio La Voz de Bagua, a local community radio station, has been closed since 8 June for allegedly inciting violence during the rioting by indigenous groups that took place at the start of that month. Carrascal had criticised the government position at the time. Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political eliteslast_img read more
