Waldir Marques, undersecretary for prizes and sweepstakes at the Secretariat of Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (SECAP) within the Ministry, said multiple operators would be allowed to enter the market, and talked up the benefits of legalisation.“According to industry press, it is estimated that Brazilians send BRL2bn to BRL8bn abroad via international [gambling] sites, as the vertical is not regulated in the country,” Marques said.“This indicates that the legalisation of sports betting in Brazil will provide greater security for bettors, new jobs and more income, in addition to preserving sporting integrity, which is a key condition of regulation.”Marques added that legal wagering would also boost federal coffers through the 3% turnover tax on sports betting, included in the legislation signed into law by then-President Michel Temer in December 2018.The country’s sports betting market was originally expected to launch before the end of 2020, though the late shift away from the qualitative model is expected to see the legal wagering go live next year.Efforts to finalise the regulatory framework and move towards launching the concession process were stepped up in June this year, when the PPI Council included betting in a BRL37.03bn package of fundraising measures.These are designed to create additional funding for Brazil’s economic recovery, after the country was badly affected by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has signed a decree formally adding sports betting to the country’s Investment Partnership Program (PPI) portfolio and national privatisation programme.

Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. It has been a tough year for travel stocks. While they are still a long way from getting back to pre-pandemic financial health, they are on their way. Earlier today, two such FTSE 100 stocks released updates.The first of these is British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG), which is out with its first quarter (Q1) results. The other is Holiday Inn owner Intercontinental Hotels Group (LSE: IHG), which just released a trading update. 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…IAG’s losses shrink but outlook subduedIAG’s losses have subsided sharply. They are now at €1,067m, down 36.6% from Q1 2020. Its liquidity position is strong, at €10.5bn, which is a slight increase from the same time last year because of bond issuances, revolving credit facilities, and reduced costs among others. While these are positives, I think there is a flip side that just cannot be ignored, either. The company’s revenues are down too, as it operated at only 22% of passenger capacity in Q1 2020. While improvement in cargo revenues softened the blow a bit, the fact is that they form a small part of the total. As a result, overall revenue was down 79% in the latest quarter. IAG is not particularly positive in its forward looking statements either. While it mentions pent-up demand for travel, it also mentions “uncertainty over the timing of the lifting of government travel restrictions and the continued impact and duration of COVID-19” as a reason for not providing profit guidance. IHG sees improved revenues, upbeat outlookIHG, on the other hand, is relatively upbeat in its trading update. Its preferred revenue measure, RevPAR, which is revenue per available room, is still subdued at less than half the levels seen in Q1 2019. But it is down only 33.7% from Q1 2020.The group also notes a pickup in demand from the US and China, whose economies have also bounced back fast from the pandemic. IHG’s CEO, Keith Barr, says that “we’re confident that IHG is well positioned for sustained growth”.While these are positives, the fact is that demand is still slow, the pandemic is still under way, and more coronavirus variants are still possible. These could get in the way of IHG’s recovery. Which FTSE 100 stock would I buy?Still, I think there is a strong chance that there are better days ahead for both IAG and IHG. Vaccinations are progressing. And lockdowns are easing in many parts of the world. Travel may open up cautiously, but it is returning.Both stocks’ prices have picked up in the current stock market rally. And I reckon that they can rise more. The IHG share price is at its 2019 levels already, so it is harder to predict how much farther it will go in the foreseeable future. But IAG is at a fraction of its pre-crash levels. Over time, I think it has a lot of potential to rally but it is one for the patient investor in me. I would consider both as long-term investments, however.

Sure shot: White takes out Michael Owen in 2006 (Getty Images) Jason White relives his biggest hits“I SOMETIMES look back and think, ‘God, did I actually do that?’” offers Jason White.Once known as the hitman of Scottish rugby, the former Caley, Sale, Clermont and Lions six has an impressive back catalogue of big tackles. Ask him for his favourites and he can recall them in great detail.So here is a smash down memory lane as he talks us through his greatest hits.On Jerry Flannery, 2006Last year, on an episode of Joe‘s House of Rugby, Jerry Flannery described this hit, saying that White “absolutely maimed me!”Describing how then-Ireland boss Eddie O’Sullivan warned his players not to carry around the corner, Flannery continued: “And, honestly man, someone carried and didn’t make much of a f****** gain but I was like, ‘Oh, I’m going to show Eddie’ and then, as I was getting the ball it was just like, ‘Oooh, my soul has been taken away from me!’“And, literally, someone shouted to me, when I was on the ground, ‘Are you still alive?!’ I was like ‘Ughhh.’”Giving his perspective on the hit against Ireland, White says: “It’s about trying to get into position early. You scan up and see what’s in front of you. For the one on Jerry It was obvious that Ireland were coming around the corner. And he’s running but it’s obvious that he was the only option I could see – he is the only person who is going to get the ball.“From there I’m set. And as soon as the balls come off from the nine at the base of the ruck I’ve got off that line really quickly, I’ve got to have really good line speed. I was gonna go to him and there’s no other options, there weren’t any good decoys. There weren’t two runners there and it didn’t look like Jerry was gonna tip the ball on.Another hit: Flannery carries into contact in 2006 (Inpho)“I would always try to hit with the point of my shoulder. As opposed to some who will chuck their arm in really hard. You just try to transfer the power through your legs and through your shoulder and just tried to hit him at the midriff, and then if you can, try to hook a leg – it was Alan Tait who would talk about ‘handles’ from his rugby league days.”In the end, he goes for the hook and is grabbing for the hooker, but he hits Flannery so hard he is cannot keep hold.According to White, it is possible to get caught ‘man-watching’ as Jacques Burger describes in our recent piece on defensive detail, but for White, while you can miss the odd shot it is about commitment.Related: Where rugby defences and Dennis Rodman convergeWith this one, Flannery turned in to catch the ball too, exposing his side, with White adding: “That’s exactly what you want, that’s dream stuff.“I was able to get up and get him man and ball. You can get somebody who can just glance off or give you like a little hip-check like some of the bigger people – Louis Picamoles was really hard. Jamie Roberts was hard. Because they were very strong around the hip and bum area. The slightest little bit of movement from them coming off was really gonna make a difference, because you can’t put a shot on them clean.”On Paul Sackey, 2008“I was on as a subby here,” recalls White, now head of sport at Loretto school. “Coming off the bench it’s about what can you do to bring some energy to the team and I probably waited to make my mark.“It’s a one off-runner. Just nobody with him (Sackey) at all. The pitch was probably a little bit heavy, it’s 72 minutes and there’s no decoy, there’s nobody else with him there. So you just get off the line and I managed to drive him up and backwards for it.“Some of the wingers can be the biggest and most powerful people on the pitch and Sackey was a great athlete, but he wasn’t the big thundering winger that you can have. That was winning that physical contest, with aggression and line speed again.“Shot selection was really important. And obviously, if someone’s on your side (past the gainline), you’re just on a classic tackle on the side, get them on the ground. Sometimes if you’ve not won the contest, you almost need to speed bump them and let them take them themselves down (in a soak tackle). It’s just getting a feel for it and at that point, I would probably have learned my craft a little bit. That was 2008 so I’d been a pro for ten years. “So I’d made mistakes and learnt what to identify and you just you get that feel for when you can tackle. ‘Can I dominate this guy or am I on a hiding to nothing?’ And I would probably back myself under favourable conditions for most of them. But you need to weigh it all up and see what’s going to be the best success for the team.”On Trevor Woodman, 2004“This is just before half-time. I was putting some cracking tackles in a club level but this was probably the first really big shot I’d put in at international level.“I came from far out, I was probably defending at 13, and I came in and properly halved him. He managed to regather it and I remember one of my ribs, the top of my rib must have popped out and I remember going off at half-time struggling to breath. Will Greenwood came up, tapped me on the bum and made some comment about what a cracking tackle that was.“He didn’t see me coming so it was the classic, out-to-in one, he only sees the ball and can’t see the defender from the outside channel coming in to get him. I managed to steal a bit of an advantage on him.”Teamwork: White and Tom Philip double-tackle Yannick Jauzion, 2004 (Getty Images)Is there an art to knowing where to come from in the defensive line at certain stages of a game?White gives his view: “Everyone does need to be able to defend anywhere but it will be obvious that your front five, as a generalisation, will be closer to the breakdown. It’s about having empathy, working with your defence coach. I probably ended up in that 13 channel because we were getting stretched by England. It’s reacting and believing in yourself that you can execute the skill properly.”On Michael Owen, 2006“That was Millennium Stadium and again I was on the bench,” White says of his hit on Wales No 8 Michael Owen, shown in the image at the top of this piece.“I just went absolutely all in. Michael took the ball absolutely flat out and I hit him horizontal. Before he got the ball I was already horizontal. If he had deviated by about three inches I would probably have been sparked (out, concussed). So the timing came off and Michael’s a big, big dude and I absolutely cut in half, to be honest.“I was a little bit fortunate but there was an element of risk and reward there, I went for it and it came off.”Another hit that day: Robert Sidoli gets the White treatment too (Getty Images)The main image shows a big hit at the midriff. White is 6ft 5in. As debate swirls around tackle height in the current game, the former flanker can offer his observations.“It’s about technique and it’s your ability to understand and use your body,” White says. “There is a big thing there that’s down to shot selection. If your team’s defensive coach is looking for lots and lots of line speed and you’re pushing out really hard, it can then be difficult to get your body down low, to execute a low tackle. You can end up almost chest on chest because teams are playing really tight to the gainline.“Attacks nowadays are a little bit more inventive. You’ve got all the back plays and the ball carriers are good enough to hit the people in front or they can play out the back. That’s where you’ve got real big line speed. That’s when it can be harder. But you can get down low, definitely.“I think the biggest thing is, is getting your head on the right side. You want to be hitting around the soft part of the upper thigh probably. My dad always told me ‘You can’t run without your ankles!’Hard to hit: White and Co faced Lomu in 2000 (Getty Images)“Get your head on the right side and hit with your shoulder. That for me was always the most important thing. Then I think timing becomes key. The hardest guy to tackle ever for me – probably for a lot of people – was Jonah Lomu because his stride length was so great.“When he was into his full cadence, you couldn’t tackle one leg because it’s so big. So you had to make sure you could get your timing correct. When both legs were together, you tried to knock his knees together. The chat I use when I’m coaching is the old ‘foot in the hoop, cheek to cheek, band of steel.’ You just to make sure that your foot is in there close, you drive through your shoulder and you need to wrap your arms around as hard as you can.”The hard work on his skills paid off and White says he was fortunate to live out his boyhood dreams. For so many others, running down his channel was a nightmare. Former Scotland, Lions, Sale and Clermont hitman talks through his favourite tackles

MacaulayText description provided by the architects. The Nexus House, a compact home for a young family of four, occupies a small site in University Heights, a historic residential district in Madison with iconic homes by Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Keck & Keck, and many others. Successfully contesting the local preservation ordinance whose strict guidelines advocated stylistic mimicry while failing to recognize the neighborhood’s rich architectural diversity, we designed a quiet but unapologetically contemporary building, its formally restrained volume discreetly placed in the back of the trapezoidal site, where it avoids direct visual competition with its two dignified neighbors, a hundred-year old Spanish Colonial home and the Ely House from 1896, a cherished landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.Save this picture!© John J. MacaulayThe house is composed of two principal building blocks: a two-story brick podium partially carved into the site’s existing slope; and a linear cedar-clad meander that wraps up and over the podium before transforming into a cantilever, its overhang providing shade for the south-facing main level patio. Following this binary parti, the home’s “public” functions – garage, support rooms, and an open living hall – are located in the brick base, while its “private” spaces – upper level bedrooms, baths, and a small reading room – are housed in the cedar volume. Exterior steps lead up the slope to the home’s front door, a glazed recess with a delicate steel canopy marking the vertical joint between the two distinct building blocks. The glass entry door opens into a small vestibule that leads into the main living hall, an open space for cooking, eating, and sitting, where a series of floor-to-ceiling windows offer arriving guests expansive, carefully framed views into the neighborhood.Save this picture!© John J. MacaulayThe deliberately neutral interiors of the living hall are complemented by a troika of dark-stained wood objects that spatially anchor the open space: a small entertainment center; a fireplace and chimney; and a wood wall and canopy cradling an intimate side lounge, which can be separated from the living hall with large pocket doors to serve as a guest bedroom or quiet study.

Howard Lake | 14 March 2006 | News As the end of the financial year approaches, the Charity Commission is today asking financial specialists to stop requesting certificates proving their clients are registered charities in order to continue to claim Stamp Duty Reserve Tax exemption. Instead, they are being told to visit the Commission’s online register of all registered charities in England and Wales.Many accountants, brokers and financial advisers believe the need for a certificate is a requirement from HM Revenue and Customs but this isn’t the case. Previously, requests for ‘certificates’ have been answered with a letter from the commission confirming the charity’s status but this will now cease as the commission targets its resources where they’re most needed. 25 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

John Skiles turned away from a pile of cardboard boxes, all labeled ‘PEACHES’ and stacked up as tall as him, before he swung his foot up to rest on another box in front of him.All empty.“I love it,” he smiled.Big crowds flocked through the first Parks Legado Farmers Market of the season on Saturday morning, all to take a look through vegetables, artisan goods, crafts, fruits like Skiles’ peaches and much more offered from about 70 local vendors. 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School Carla Braden sorts out kernels from freshly made kettle popcorn at Mariposa Produce stand Parks Legado Farmers Market Saturday morning at Parks Legado Town Center. Then they left with armloads of buys, from what vendors called the biggest and best market at Parks Legado to kick off the center’s second summer running the event.“We had 36 boxes of peaches, and about 600 pounds of produce, and it’s gone in two hours,” Skiles said a little after 10 a.m. The market opened at 8 in the morning.“Last year, it was taking almost the whole market to sell everything, so for two hours — yeah, I guarantee this market has grown exponentially,” he added.The Parks Legado Farmers Market started last summer, with organizers presenting four events over the summer months, and the market’s back for another go-around this summer.Saturday’s event marked the first of four scheduled for this summer, all on the second Saturday of each month through September — and already, this year’s first market has grown bigger, busier and more successful than the event was last year, echoed vendor Lesli Kizer.Kizer, under the tent at her own booth, glanced over glass jars filled with colorful jams and jellies offered by her business We Be Jammin — or at least what was left.“We’ve been pretty busy,” she said. “We’re out of a whole bunch of flavors, but that’s a good problem to have.“It’s doubled in size,” she added, on the crowd of buyers attending Saturday. “It’s been awesome today.”Kizer sold jams, jellies, pickles and different condiments bottled by her local company that she started in 2013. Skiles sold some locally grown squash, zucchini and cherry tomatoes, along with peaches the family bought and trucked back from Weatherford on Friday.They were among the 70 or so vendors on hand Saturday, which is a number that’s grown this year right along with the number of shoppers. About 50 vendors came to the market during each session last summer, organizing official Andrew Marshall said last week, speaking for the Sewell Family of Companies which presents the event at the shopping center the organization built in 2013.One of those new, first-time vendors, Jason Waters, said he was impressed and excited by the crowds, under his tent and behind the banner Walker-Waters Urban Farm.“You could sell anything here,” Waters said, as a potential buyer looked through his onions. He sold locally grown onions, squash, tomatoes and potatoes, alongside his wife, Chelsea Waters, who offered bottles of lotion and more from the beauty shop in Odessa she owns called Glitz House of Beauty.Jason Waters raises vegetables on his land and at his father’s place, and usually just gives extras to his employees at W&W Energy, his business in the oil industry.“This time we were like, ‘Heck, let’s take it to the farmers market. It’ll be fun,’” Waters said.Across the plaza, Yolanda Hernandez, also of Odessa, offered samples of her spice called Porras’ Spices de Vida, in her and husband Oliver’s first time at the Parks Legado market.Yolanda said they had vended at the Odessa, Texas Farmers Market presented by Medical Center Hospital and at the Briar Patch Trade Days in town, and that they planned to be back at the Parks Legado market after Saturday.“There’s a lot of people here,” Hernandez said. “I think it’s going pretty well.”The next event at Parks Legado is set to open July 14 from 8 a.m. to noon at the town center located at 7260 East Highway 191. The center will also host markets on Aug. 14 and Sept. 8. The Parks Legado market advertises itself alongside MCH’s market, which opens next on June 23.“We love it. We’re all about the farmers market, because when we get a chance, we actually get to go and shop a little bit and get some more fresh fruits and veggies and things like that,” Kizer said.“But I like the fact that it brings everybody out. It’s the good, old-fashioned shopping.”Odessa farmers market scheduleParks Legado Farmers MarketDates: July 14, Aug. 11, Sept. 8When: 8 a.m. to noonWhere: Parks Legado Town Center, 7260 E.

In April 2019, the total number of mortgages delinquent more than 30 days fell to 3.6%, and delinquency rates have fallen year-over-year from 4.3% in April 2018. The report also reflects a slight month-to-month decline, as 4% of mortgage were delinquent more than 30 days in March 2019.”Thanks to a 50-year low in unemployment, rising home prices and responsible underwriting, the U.S. overall delinquency rate is the lowest in more than 20 years,” Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “However, a number of metros that suffered a natural disaster or economic decline contradict this national trend. For example, in the wake of the 2018 California Camp Fire, the serious delinquency rate in the Chico, California, metro area this April was 21% higher than one year ago.”According to March’s report, the largest annual gains in serious delinquency rates came in areas impacted by Hurricanes. Panama City, Florida, had the largest increase at 1.9%.Panama City once again posted the largest annual rise in serious delinquency rates with a 1.4% increase. Albany, Georgia, recorded a 0.7% increase and Jacksonville, North Carolina, reported a 0.6% increase.”The U.S. has experienced 16 consecutive months of falling overall delinquency rates, but it has not been a steady decline across all areas of the country. Recent flooding in the Midwest could elevate delinquency rates in hard-hit areas, similar to what we see after a hurricane, said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic.The total number of homes in foreclosure in April 2019 fell slightly to 0.4% from 0.5% the month prior.Here’s what else is happening in the Week Ahead:NAHB housing market index (Aug. 15)Census Bureau residential construction survey (Aug. 16)
