He could not be confident of numbers for the amount collected from beaches, he said.The government scientist’s u-turn will deepen a sense of outrage in the scientific community that the White House is hiding data and spinning the science of the oil spill.

Marketing’s big evolution: Part 2

first_img Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates Sports betting In the second of a two-part interview, Kindred CMO Elen Barber discusses the changing tools, technologies and responsibilities of a marketing executive in the igaming industry.Read Part 1 here.There’s been a growing awareness in recent times that operators need to change their approach to marketing. Rather than bombarding players with offers, marketing should be used to build long-term, sustainable relationships with customers, says Barber.This can start with offering the best games and an optimum service. It can go further, she says, by highlighting the player protection controls in place, by making sure a player is aware that an operator will intervene should their gambling habits show signs of developing into problems.“[That] is what many gambling companies don’t do enough,” she says.Barber argues that without the right marketing, products, features and even safeguards can go unnoticed. “Even if you have the best product in the world, if you are not able to communicate it to the customers in the right language, the right way and the right channel, that product becomes useless.”Coming crackdown With scrutiny and criticism of the igaming marketing growing, she is very aware of the potential for new restrictions and controls. Indeed, already there are calls for a clampdown on advertising in Sweden, despite the regulated market being barely six months old.Barber says such calls are premature and points out that market launches are always accompanied by a race by licensees to carve out market share: “In the past it was just the monopoly and now there are more than 70 licensed operators in the market and they are doing exactly the same as the monopoly used to do.”Advertising, she says, will decline eventually, following this initial push. “[Operators] will really look at the efficiency of different channels to reassess their investment in the digital channels and above the line to see what is better for their customers.”She sees self-regulation as a potential cure for the industry’s ills. It’s up to the operators to identify what the issues are, how they plan to address them, then to work with their peers to ensure the rest of the sector shares these views.But she concedes there’s a limit to what can be achieved here. “We won’t be able to fight political decisions. But if it is something that we can influence by having better standards and following those standards, then we can make sure we can counter the policymakers with a strong framework that we all agree to follow.”Given the frequent backlashes against gambling advertising, coupled with the increasing effectiveness of digital marketing, it would be easy to wonder if the era of operators making a big splash with TV marketing was perhaps coming to an end.But Barber says she doesn’t believe this is the case: “Channels such as pay-per-click (PPC) will always stay on the bottom of the conversion channel. Above the line, TV and radio, will stay on top of it because they bring more brand awareness.”Shifting marketing landscape That’s not to say digital marketing doesn’t have a role to play. “It is very important to have the right media mix,” Barber says. “You can’t just focus on one channel. Each channel, whether it is TV or print or affiliate advertising, has its own role in the conversion funnel.“You need to make sure you utilise every single channel properly, understanding what level of investment is required in each channel to get the best return.”Barber, who has been at Kindred nine years and has worked her way up through various marketing roles, says she is also keen to get in early on new trends taking hold outside gambling.For example, she was quick to spot the value of programmatic advertising in its early days. “When programmatic advertising was just a talking point, I was the person to say Kindred needed to invest in it,” she says. “We were the first gambling company to create an in-house programmatic team.“We realised that if we wanted to do it properly, we wouldn’t be able to do it through any of the agencies because the data we had was an advantage. So we had to do it in-house.”Barber admits that staying on top of all the new developments in marketing technology is a challenge. “If you look at the current market landscape, there are over 7,000 big companies out there providing marketing services and the CMO role is to be on top of everything and understand how all these technologies and systems integrate with each other.”But for her the challenge is made easier by marketing having such a prominent position at Kindred.“If you look at not just gambling industries but all industries out there, then usually the CMO is a part of commercial, so you don’t really have your own seat at the executive table,” she says. “It is more about how you serve the commercial department. This is completely different to what we’ve done at Kindred. Marketing is a big standalone organisation working hand-in-hand with the commercial team.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter In the second of a two-part interview, Kindred CMO Elen Barber discusses the changing tools, technologies and responsibilities of a marketing executive in the igaming industry Casino & games Email Address Tags: Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Marketing’s big evolution: Part 2 3rd July 2019 | By Joanne Christielast_img read more

FTSE 100 investors: I’d buy this stock in June!

first_img With the FTSE 100 index down by 20% in the year to date, I believe now could be a great opportunity for investors to buy shares.In a turbulent market, having a long-term outlook is usually beneficial. This should enable the investor to ride out fluctuations in the market and benefit from the economy’s likely recovery.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…Here is a company I would buy and hold for the long term.HSBCHSBC’s (LSE: HSBA) share price has taken a pounding this year, dropping by 37%. In fact, its poor run extends further, with a 40% slump in the past five years.Times have been challenging for the bank. Brexit, ultra-low interest rates and Covid-19 have made lending extremely difficult. Many businesses — some of which HSBC has lent money to — are likely to go bankrupt. Recently, the bank set aside $3bn for bad loans.A problem for FTSE 100 investors?Following discussions with the Bank of England and the regulator, HSBC has also cancelled its dividend payments. This is a measure that many other FTSE 100 companies have taken. Management will be reviewing the dividend policy at the end of 2020. For some, this might be a sticking point as HSBC’s generous dividend was a major pull for FTSE 100 income investors.Despite cost-cutting measures, in Q1 the bank reported profit before tax fell by 48% to $3.2bn when compared to the same period in 2019. The bank foresees worsening global economic conditions in 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak. To mitigate a predicted reduction in turnover, HSBC has looked to slash costs further.A restructuring plan has been outlined, with the bank likely to redirect more resources to Asia. The plans might include the sale of HSBC’s US business, and possibly even its French retail network. My Foolish colleague Karl Loomes thinks this makes sense and could lead to a more efficient company. I am inclined to agree with him.HSBC also has a large investment banking division, unlike some of its FTSE 100 rivals. In a turbulent market, the bank might see an increase in trading activity, which could offset some of the declining revenue in other areas of the business.The fall in its share price means that the stock has a price-to-earnings ratio of 16. This might indicate that the company’s shares are trading at a price below intrinsic value.The short term will likely be rocky for shareholders, and the true economic damage caused by the coronavirus remains unknown. No one is sure how long it will take for the economy to fully recover. However, I feel sure that in the future things will slowly go back to normal. We are already seeing signs of this, with some retail stores reopening. In time, customers and businesses will regain lost confidence. When the tide turns, a leaner HSBC — and its shareholders — will hopefully benefit.I think HSBC’s low share price could be a great buy for a long-term FTSE 100 value investor.

Forget Bitcoin! I’d buy cheap FTSE 250 shares to make a million

first_img Enter Your Email Address Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The recent stock market crash may have pushed some investors to own alternative assets such as Bitcoin rather than FTSE 250 stocks. However, despite the short term appeal of assets like Bitcoin, their long term prospects are far from certain. Indeed, due to the way Bitcoin is structured, it is almost impossible to predict how much the cryptocurrency is really worth. 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…Bitcoin vs the FTSE 250The price of Bitcoin is determined by supply and demand. If there are more buyers than sellers in the market, the price will go up. If there are more sellers than buyers, the price will fall. The same is true for FTSE 250 stocks, to some extent, although there is one key difference. Their underlying businesses underpin the value of FTSE 250 shares. These firms have a fundamental value, which is relatively straightforward to calculate. It is impossible to do the same for Bitcoin. For example, as FTSE 250 firms earn income from their operations. It’s quite straightforward to place a multiple on this income to arrive at an estimate of intrinsic value for the company. Bitcoin does not produce any income. Therefore, we can’t value the crypto-asset based on its profitability. Long term prospectsThe long term prospects for FTSE 250 stocks are also more attractive than cryptocurrency.Cryptocurrency has been around for quite a few years, but as of yet, it is not widely used as a currency. Regulatory demands and illegal activity have hamstrung its adoption. What’s more, there’s no guarantee it will ever replace traditional money. Regulators could even decide to ban it if it becomes the go-to currency for criminals. On the other hand, stocks and shares have been around for hundreds of years. They are a tried and tested way of creating and building wealth. The FTSE 250 has only been in existence for three-and-a-half decades, but during this time it has produced an average annual return for investors of 12%. At this rate of return, it would take six years to double your money. An investment of £100,000 would grow to be worth £1m within 20 years. Steady growthWhile it is impossible to tell what the future holds for stocks, there is a high chance investors will continue to see similar returns going forward. Company earnings should grow in line with inflation over the long term. This should help support share price growth of around 3% per annum.Including dividends paid to investors, as well as any other form of shareholder return and technological advantages, which may lead to improved profit margins, it is not unrealistic to suggest that company earnings could grow in the 5% to 10% range for the foreseeable future. That’s why FTSE 250 stocks are likely to be a better investment than Bitcoin over the long term. As such, buying a basket of these companies could help you grow your financial nest substantially in the years ahead. Forget Bitcoin!

Massive mismatch – Sit down Peter Stringer

first_imgSaturday May 3, 2008 Massive mismatch – Sit down Peter Stringer This short clip comes to us from about a month back, when the Munster took on the Cardiff Blues, and we saw a small example of the potential of young Welsh outside back Jamie Roberts.Roberts is big, strong and fast, and weighing in at over 105kg, it’s not surprising that little Peter Stringer and a few others weren’t able to grab a hold of him first time.This footage was a request, so despite not being the most devastating of action, we do try to satisfy requests where possible, and it is a small hint of what’s to come from Roberts in the future, baring in mind there’s a Grand Slam champions Welsh tour of World Cup Champions South Africa coming up.I also thought a few of you would enjoy seeing Stringer put on his hindside.

Jonny Wilkinson absolutely smashed by huge Opeti Fonua

first_imgMonday May 6, 2013 Jonny Wilkinson absolutely smashed by huge Opeti Fonua Jonny Wilkinson was on the receiving end of one of the biggest knocks of his career as Toulon beat Agen 43-21 at the Stade Felix Mayol on Saturday. Wilkinson, who wasn’t included in the initial Lions squad, didn’t suffer any long term effects from the collision.ADVERTISEMENTWinger Alexis Palisson scored a hat-trick of tries while former Springbok Danie Rossouw scored a brace as the home side secured a comfortable victory on the last weekend of Top 14 pool play.Early in the second half Wilkinson went in for a trademark tackle but ended up picking on the wrong man, as massive Opeti Fonua came charging towards him, sending him flying at a rate of knots.The former England star left the field for a concussion check, but returned shortly afterwards. He didn’t last long though and left a few minutes later again to stick an icepack on the shoulder. The Toulon camp have since confirmed that he should be okay to play again soon.It was great to see how quickly Agen centre Nafi Tuitavake was to get across to Wilkinson to see that he was okay, as well as one of the other players sticking their hands up recognising the possiblity of a serious injury.As you can see in the [updated] clip, Fonua also bumped off David Smith and big Danie Rossouw.Ross Skeate confirmed earlier that Fonua is weighing in at around 146kg’s at the moment.ADVERTISEMENTBoth Toulon and table toppers Clermont have Semi Final spots lined up, where they will face the winners of Toulouse vs Racing Metro, and Castres vs Montpellier respectively. The playoff games take place this coming weekend, while the semis will be on the 24th and 25th May.

Friday Funnies – The Honey Badger’s 101 in Aussie Lingo

first_imgFriday May 9, 2014 Friday Funnies – The Honey Badger’s 101 in Aussie Lingo Some of the South African Western Force players, and their American physio, just can’t get to grips with the Australian lingo since moving Down Under. Luckily for all involved Nick ‘The Honey Badger’ Cummins took it upon himself to help them out.ADVERTISEMENTDylan Sage and Dillyn Leyds are two Cape Town boys who joined the Force not too long ago. They’ve said that they’re enjoying their time in Perth, loving the weather and rugby, but as you can see, good Aussie blokes like the Badge have to show them their way.After a quick run down through the body parts for physio Kelsey, Cummins moves on to more pressing examples, with the following rhyming slang proving a bit too tough for the foreigners:“If I was to: Get on the dog and bone, book a left jab to the billabong, bend the elbow with a few pigs ears and chew a bit of fat with a couple china plates.”It’s another serving of classic Honey Badger, who we’ve all come to love for his way with words and being the most Australian man in the world. He’s also a pretty decent rugby player.Thanks to Fox Sports for the laugh.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Zero tolerance for racism

first_imgAn historic Black church in Charleston, S.C., has been hit by an act of racist terrorism. The nine people killed on June 17 may not be victims of the systematic racism of the police and courts that the Black Lives Matter movement has been combatting. They also may not be the victims of an organized conspiracy — that remains to be seen. But their deaths were not accidental.The killings took place in a local atmosphere where it is normal for the state government to fly the flag of slavery on its lawn. Where the local cops have mingled with the Ku Klux Klan and recruited their members. And vice versa.It’s a national atmosphere where capitalist corporate media hacks can call African-American youths “thugs” on network and cable television. An atmosphere where cops gather in demonstrations to demand their “right” to shoot Black and other people of color at will, without question or redress. A country where the airwaves and written words are still heavy with racism 150 years after slavery’s official end.Those in power are already calling the suspect, Dylann Roof, a “lone, deranged individual.” If this individual is guilty of pulling the trigger, however, there is no doubt that his “derangement” was crafted in a society steeped in racism. Assuming the media reports are accurate, the suspect felt comfortable wearing the symbols of apartheid South Africa and racist, colonial Rhodesia — the country that is now independent and named Zimbabwe. And according to survivors, he repeated the vile lies racists have used for centuries to focus anger at Black men.Those who fell from his bullets were women and men, churchgoers and political activists, union members and people who fought for their rights. Their church was the church of Denmark Vesey, whose name will live in the history of the fight for freedom because he made plans in 1822 for a massive slave uprising in the city of Charleston. Only torture and executions by the slave masters were able to prevent it.As with all those who have died on the front lines of the struggles for rights, the cause of those just murdered in Denmark Vesey’s church should be taken up by all who want justice in this country and in the world.Trade unions, rights organizations, progressive political organizations from all communities in the United States should rally together and bring this message to the streets across the country:Zero tolerance for racism against Black people and any people of color! Solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and with all who are victims of racist police violence! Class solidarity of all working people, who must stand together to win rights for all!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
