A sharp increase in online gaming revenues has helped Canadian provincial lottery operator Loto-Québec to post an improved financial outlook for the 2017-18 fiscal year.Loto-Québec’s net profits improved by 8.5% to C$1.335bn (£764m/€877m/$1.02bn), with turnover edging up by 3.7% as the operator reported improved results across all key metrics.However, it was the performance of online gaming – albeit currently the operator’s smallest division, through the EspaceJeux.com platform – which stood out, with sales rocketing by 37.5% to hit C$118m, improving on the momentum of the previous year, when the division posted a 29.7% increase.Online casino revenue improved by 40.6% to C$64.3m, while online lottery sales improved by 34% to C$53.7m.The results would appear to vindicate Loto-Québec’s decision to bring all of its online products under the same umbrella earlier this year, including bingo, casino, lotteries, poker and sports betting.Lottery operations continued to be the operator’s primary revenue-generator, accounting for sales of $1.881bn, a 2.9% rise. Loto-Québec’s four casinos generated total sales of C$906.9m – an 8.1% increase.The dividend contribution to the public purse increased by 8.7% to C$1.31bn – C$169m more than the target set by Finance Minister Carlos Leitao.Related article: Loto-Québec launches new online lottery service Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Online gaming boosts Loto-Québec’s results Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance 15th June 2018 | By contenteditor A sharp increase in online gaming revenues has helped Canadian provincial lottery operator Loto-Québec to post an improved financial outlook for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

Harvey Jones | Saturday, 29th February, 2020 | More on: PSN VTY Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. As global markets crashed amid coronavirus fears, you may have missed one piece of good economic news yesterday. House prices rose 2.3% in February, the fastest for 18 months, Nationwide‘s latest survey showed. Buyers gained confidence from Boris Johnson’s conclusive election victory in December, and took advantage of low interest rates and high employment levels.This offers some comfort for housebuilders such as Persimmon (LSE: PSN) and Vistry Group (LSE: VTY), the construction company formerly known as Bovis Homes.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 sector has been hit by the recent panic. The Persimmon share price fell around 12% over the week, closely followed by the Vistry Group share price, down around 11%. Other sectors, notably travel and hotel, were hit much harder.A sector I likeHouse price growth was ignored amid the rush to dump stock, as investors sold off the good along with the bad and the ugly. That’s why a market crash can be an attractive buying opportunity for long-term investors, who can afford to look beyond short-term setbacks.The housing market is not immune to coronavirus worries. Estate agents fear wary buyers will remain at home, and have already reported a drop in enquiries. Also, if people are worried about the impact on their livelihoods, they will be reluctant to commit to major financial decisions, and they don’t get much bigger than buying a house.In a more extreme case, the virus could hit supply lines, or force builders to close sites, but we are far from that at the moment.Keep a close eye on marketsThis is obviously an uncertain time for everyone, even those tempted to go shopping for bargain stocks. Most analysts believe markets have further to fall, so you may wish to hold your fire a little longer, but the opportunity is getting closer. So work on your watch list, and run the rule over the likes of these two.Persimmon has been controversial for serving up huge executive bonuses while scrimping on build quality, and last Thursday’s final results were a disappointment. Total group revenue fell 2.4% to £3.65bn, profit before tax dropped £50m to £1.041bn, and margins fell too. It is now looking to rebuild its reputation after recent troubles, and the news that CEO David Jenkinson is stepping down after 15 months in post may help.Now may be a good time to buy Persimmon, ahead of its hoped-for revival. It looks tempting, trading at 12.1 times forecast earnings and yielding a forecast 7.5%, but thinly covered just 1.1 times.Of the two, I prefer Vistry Group.On Thursday, it reported “another record year of profits” with profit before tax up 12% to £188.2m, beating market consensus. Vistry’s stock still fell 3.28% that day, as coronavirus fears trumped all. It is now trading at just 10.7 times forward earnings. The yield is lower than Persimmon’s at 5.2% but cover is healthier at 1.8.As house prices rise but housebuilder share prices fall, the sector looks tempting. It may look even more tempting in the days ahead. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The House of Deputies reelected the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings July 8 to her third and final three-year term.Jennings faced no opposition in the election and was elected 786-26. Vice President Byron Rushing chaired the vote and the house rose to its feet in applause.Jennings was first elected at the 77th General Convention in 2012. At the 78th General Convention in 2015, she was re-elected by acclamation. Jennings is the first ordained woman to hold the position.“Thank you to this house. I love this house and I love this church and so I am grateful for the confidence you have expressed in electing me for a third and final term,” Jennings said after the vote. “In the last six years, you have afforded me the privilege of making a life and serving this church and all of you. I thank you for the opportunity to do it for three more years.”The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president, speaks during a kickoff news conference July 4 at the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe president is limited canonically to three consecutive three-year terms.Her election was the last of a series of elections that took nearly three hours of the house’s planned three hour and 45-minute session.Jennings’ re-election took place two days after the convention agreed to pay the president of the House of Deputies for the work of the office, ending a two-decade-long compensation effort.The president’s role has been changing since 1964, when the convention gave the position a three-year term instead of simply being elected to preside during convention.In addition to chairing the House of Deputies during convention, the president also is canonically required to serve as vice chair of Executive Council and vice president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, or DFMS, the nonprofit corporate entity through which the Episcopal Church owns property and does business. He or she has a wide swath of appointment powers. The president also travels around the church, speaking at conferences and other gatherings and meeting with deputies and other Episcopalians.Jennings is a graduate of Colgate University and Episcopal Divinity School, and she has received honorary doctorates from both institutions. She lives outside Cleveland in Sagamore Hills, Ohio, with her husband, Albert, who has been a parish priest for 36 years. They have been married for those same 36 years. Their son, Sam, lives nearby and is a sound engineer. Their daughter, Lee, died in 2010.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter.

By Gary Truitt – Oct 20, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News World Food Prize laureate to speak at Purdue Facebook Twitter Akinwumi Ayodeji AdesinaThe most recent World Food Prize laureate will join Purdue President Mitch Daniels on Oct. 23 as part of the fall 2017 Presidential Lecture Series. Akinwumi Ayodeji Adesina, a Purdue alumnus and president of the African Development Bank Group, will speak with Daniels at 6:30 p.m. in Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse. The event will be during the same week Adesina is presented as the 2017 World Food Prize. The World Food Prize, often referred to as the Nobel Prize for food and agriculture, is the highest international honor recognizing the achievements of those who have advanced human development by improving quality, quantity and availability of food in the world.Adesina was honored as this year’s recipient in recognition of his work with the Rockefeller Foundation, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and as minister of agriculture for Nigeria. For the past 20 years, he has dedicated his career to improving the agricultural sector in Africa, having led initiatives to expand agricultural production, end corruption in the Nigerian fertilizer industry, and increase the availability of credit for smallholder farmers across the African continent. “Purdue’s researchers and alumni have helped feed the planet by making significant contributions in science-based agriculture and food science, and there is no calling that is both more noble and necessary,” Daniels said. “Akinwumi Ayodeji Adesina continues that tradition, and we are thrilled that he will join us to discuss his extraordinary work.”As a Purdue graduate, earning his master’s (1985) and doctoral (1988) degrees in agricultural economics as well as receiving an honorary doctorate from Purdue (2015), Adesina joins Purdue faculty members Gebisa Ejeta (2009) and Philip Nelson (2007) as World Food Prize laureates.

Print Right, H.E. Mr. Carlos García de Alba, Ambassador of Mexico to Ireland with Jan O’Sullivan, Minister for Education and Skills and Ronan BraniganPhotograph: Liam Burke/Press 22THE Mexican community in the MidWest now has a representative of international scale with the appointment of Ronan Branigan, managing director of The Savoy Group, as Honorary Consul for Limerick, Clare, Tipperary and Kilkenny.Having accepted the invitation made by Mexican Ambassador to Ireland Carlos Garcia De Alba, this is the third and last consulate created in the 26 counties since His Excellency’s arrival in Dublin four years ago. Another will open in Belfast in 10 days in an active policy of decentralisation of his mission, the Ambassador told Limerick Post.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There are an estimated 3,500 Mexican citizens in the country, about 50 to 60 located in the four counties for which the Limerick based consulate will be responsible. Ronan Branigan, working in the hotel and restaurant business graduating from Shannon College of Hotel Management in the ’80s, follows in the line of iconic achievers such as Tony Ryan and Tony Smurfit who were the first line of contact for Mexico here until the Embassy was established in 1992.Prior to the inauguration ceremony to mark the Consulate opening at its base, the Savoy Hotel, Mr Branigan looked ahead to his role, underlining connectivity in business, education and culture, as well as being “the first port of call to assist the Mexican community in what ever way I can. If I can deal with the issue here and put it to bed without bothering the Embassy and its workload, I will.His Excellency de Alba, Ambassador with the Honorary Consul and Mexican students Pablo Perez, Gabriel Esbinosa and Alberto Hawa – Cistertian College, Roscrea.Photo: Liam Burke/Press 22“Working on linkages in economics and culture, and education being the third area, are important”.With his sister Orla being Dean of the MBA in the Tec de Monterrey, Mexico city, “one of the top third level institutes in the world”, Ronan Branigan wants to groom a relationship there with our own third level colleges and graduates.He has been a frequent flyer back and over. “The Mid West has for many years been a home for multinationals and they have a great presence in Mexico. I want to engage with their CEOs, create a synergy and capitalise on opportunities, see where the linkages lie”.The first step is creating a website to serve the consulate and its constituency. This hotelier is also looking to hauling 2014’s inaugural PROMEXICO expo from its Dublin perch to Limerick at some stage. HE De Alba supports this big undertaking: “Last year’s was the first on such a scale. More than 100 CEOs from the two countries attended and soon PROMEXICO will have a permanent office in Dublin”.The focus is parallel to the IDAs in maximising investments, import/ export opportunities. A Limerick presence “will help even more to boost connections and relationships”.
