French racing losing €15m per month under lockdown

first_imgHowever, around €185m has been distributed to the industry from France Galop – €10m above the budgeted €175m figure – with the bulk of this awarded as prizes for flat and jump racing, owner premiums or transportation allowances.   Regions: Western Europe France After stakes rose 15% year-on-year in July and August, the first two months following the first lockdown, growth slowed to 10% in August, then just 1.2% in October, when restrictions were once again ramped up amid rising Covid-19 cases. “Online, for its part, is accelerating its growth compared to previous weeks, which is very encouraging but without being able to compensate for most of the turnover lost across the [retail] network.” This will look to incentivise trainers to bring new horses into competition, as well as encouraging foreign owners and trainers to participate in the country’s racing events. France Galop, the governing body for flat and steeplechase racing, says the sector is losing around €15m (£13.4m/$17.8m) per month under lockdown, warning it will post a loss for 2020 if the current measures are extended into December. Horse racing 24th November 2020 | By Robin Harrison French racing was able to continue in the country’s second national lockdown caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19). However, France Galop pointed out that the closure of all non-essential shops had resulted in a significant downturn in amounts wagered on events.  This backdrop meant that setting a budget was a “delicate” process, it continued, as it was very difficult to predict revenue from racing and betting on racing in the year ahead. However, France Galop did note that its experiences of 2020, and the type of measures adopted by governments, meant that it had a clearer idea of the disruption the sector could face, and the ensuring financial impact.  French racing losing €15m per month under lockdown “Over 2020 as a whole, including the suspension of racing, allocations will have fallen by 25.6% compared to 2019,” France Galop said. This averages a loss of around €15m per month, the governing body said, and should lockdown extend into December, would result in the business posting a net loss for the year. This, in turn, would mean France Galop would be unable to revise funding allocations as planned.

As a result daily turnover is “severely affected”, France Galop said, down between 20% and 30%. This may force it to temporarily withhold some planned funding in the coming year, it said. Efforts would also be undertaken to reduce costs further, having cut outgoings by around €14m in 2020 to date. Email Addresslast_img read more

He grew up in a war-torn Afghanistan and rose through the ranks by his impressive advancements first in tennis ball cricket and then at the higher levels. He has been retained for a humongous Rs 9 crores by the SRH management for the 2019 edition. The leg-spinner turned in a few memorable match-winning efforts in SRH’s journey to the finals the last edition. Khan took 21 wickets at a strike rate of 19.26 and emerged as the second-highest wicket taker in the 2018 edition. He would certainly be one of the biggest threats for opposition franchises in the upcoming event.In the Year 2020, Rashid Khan will play for Sunrisers Hyderabad 9 Tom Curran IPL 2020 Salary –  10 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Rajasthan Royals (RR)Thomas Kevin Curran is a South African-born English cricketer who represents England in Test matches and One Day Internationals. He plays for Surrey County Cricket Club in English domestic cricket. In the 2018/19 season he played for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League.In the Year 2020, Tom Curran will play for Rajasthan Royals 8 Chris MorrisIPL 2020 Salary –  10 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)Christopher Henry Morris is a South African international cricketer who plays first-class and List A cricket for Titans.In the Year 2020, Chris Morris will play for Royal Challengers Bangalore7 Glenn MaxwellIPL 2020 Salary –  10.75 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)Glenn James Maxwell is an Australian international cricketer, who currently plays ODI and Twenty20 cricket for Australia. He has also played Test cricket for Australia. He represents Victoria and Melbourne Stars in Australian domestic cricket and Lancashire County Cricket Club in English County Cricket.In the Year 2020, Glenn Maxwell will play for Kings XI Punjab 6 AB de VilliersIPL 2020 Salary –  11 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)The second player to be retained ahead of the IPL 2018 Player Auction, AB de Villiers also known as the 360 degree batsman, possesses hard hitting skills, more than decent wicket-keeper and an agile fielder that can put an acrobat to shame on the cricket field. On a good day, AB can single handedly win you matches. He can switch from classical batting to playing more innovative strokes and that sets him apart from most South African batsmen. For RCB, de Villiers has had many an eye catching innings, even picking up an award for the most power packed knock in the 2012 IPL for his assault on Dale Steyn. He has been a finisher par excellence, hitting a sublime hundred in Mumbai in 2015 and another in Bengaluru against Gujarat Lions in 2016. With Virat Kohli, AB has posted five 100+ partnerships for RCB and two 200+ partnerships, the only pair in the world to post two such partnerships. He made 687 runs in the 2016, finishing third on the runs chart.In the Year 2020, AB de Villiers will play for Royal Challengers Bangalore 5 Ben Stokes –IPL 2020 Salary – 12.5 CroreIPL 2020 Team –   Rajasthan Royals (RR)The New Zealand-born England cricketer Ben Stokes is a destructive batsman and an effective fast-bowler. Stokes made waves in his first season of the IPL when he was bought by the Rising Pune Supergiant at a record price of INR 14.5 cr.  An aggressive cricketer, he smashed an unbeaten 103 in his first season and returned with a best of 3/18 during his 12 matches for the former franchise. Stokes has the ability to take on the bowlers from the word go and can test batsmen with his disciplined bowling; he is the X factor that most team yearn for. He played 13 games for the Rajasthan Royals last season, but did not have the kind of impact he or the team would have wanted.He scored 196 runs in 13 games and picked 8 wickets from 222 balls that he bowled in the 11th edition of the tournament.In the Year 2020, Ben Stokes will play for Rajasthan Royals 4 Sunil Narine IPL 2020 Salary – 12.5 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)The mainstay of KKR’s bowling attack for years and the second-highest wicket-taker in T20s across frontiers with a tally of 360 scalps, Sunil Narine would look to up the ante in the 2019 edition. He did suffer a downturn of late when he was called for a suspect action which forced him to modify his action. He would look to outwit batsmen with his constant innovation as an off-break bowler and a more than useful pinch-hitter in the upcoming season. The team management has reposed faith in his abilities by retaining him for an impressive Rs. 8.5 crore in the auction leading up to IPL 2019.In the Year 2020, Sunil Narine will play for Kolkata Knight Riders  2 David WarnerIPL 2020 Salary –  12.5 CroreIPL 2020 Team – Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)David Andrew Warner is an Australian international cricketer and a former captain of the Australian national team.

Sloane Floberg, a deacon.“Of course, it’s a mother’s worst nightmare, not to hear from her daughter,” said Floberg, who also works with Standing Rock teens as a mental and behavioral health counselor.Her husband, the Rev. John Floberg, is rector of the three Episcopal congregations on the part of the reservation in North Dakota, including St. Luke’s. He is planning the Jan. 10 prayer service with a Roman Catholic congregation, and people of all faiths are welcome. It will be held at 9:30 a.m. in a Fort Yates building known as the TERO, or Tribal Employment Rights Office. Volunteers are scheduled to gather after the service to resume their search for Mauai.Some of the searchers plan to brave the winter cold on horseback, while Episcopal leaders have offered the use of church vans as needed, John Floberg said.“We remain hopeful that Kara is alive,” he said in an email, though her disappearance has rattled the community. “This isn’t like Kara to go so long without making contact with her mother or other members of her family.”On Jan. 8, two months after Mauai was last seen, the Standing Rock Tribal Council passed a resolution calling for an emergency declaration in response to the prevalence of drug use, which may be contributing to disappearances and killings on the reservation.“The increased presence and use of dangerous narcotics has destroyed families and the lives of our people,” the resolution says, according to text that Floberg shared on Facebook. In declaring a state of emergency, the tribal council hopes to draw on greater assistance from the Bureau of Indian Affairs “to address the dangerous drug epidemic that is directly related to violence, human trafficking and missing, murdered and indigenous women.”Violence against women and disappearances have fueled growing concerns in other indigenous communities in the United States, as well. A New York Times report in December noted that some activists accuse federal agencies and law enforcement officials of disregarding Native Americans’ pleas to investigate such cases more thoroughly.Sloane Floberg, in an interview with Episcopal News Service, said many of the children she counsels on Standing Rock are growing up in a system that offers little outside support to break cycles of addiction, and violence is an ever-present threat.“What I am seeing is a lot of danger coming from the drug and alcohol scene,” she said.It isn’t clear why Mauai disappeared or what may have happened to her, though on Jan. 6, searchers found some of her clothes near the community of Porcupine. About 35 volunteers had been searching the area on foot, according to the Bismarck Tribune.Federal and tribal investigators reportedly have declined to comment on the latest developments.The family has been communicating with supporters and seeking help in the search through a “Bring Kara Home” Facebook page, which now has more than 2,000 followers.“Someone knows something,” a recent post says. “We are very thankful for the love & prayers.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Rejecting The Green Revolution: Florida DMS Bans Plants In The Office

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! Previous articleApopka Police Department Arrest ReportNext articleHow to handle raccoons, snakes and other critters in your yard Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 In recent years, personal plants have risen in popularity. From small succulents to potted perennials, employees have been decorating their workspaces with plants. Many studies show the positive effect the green, oxygen-producing organisms have on productivity; they have been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and other negative feelings by between 30% and 60%. Because increased productivity leads to increased profitability for businesses, many have been supportive of the trend. The Florida Department of Management Services (DMS) is not one of them.Workers in the DMS office buildings were recently informed of the impending change; apparently, several employee complaints had been filed regarding the negative impacts caused by the flowers, house plants, and cacti others had been using to decorate their desks and offices. Though the ban is not yet official, Tom Berger, director of the agency’s real estate management division, sent out a memo acknowledging the problem.“DMS is committed to providing cost-efficient, accessible, clean, and safe work environments for all,” he wrote in the May 16 memo. “However, if safety and/or health concerns arise before the policy is fully established, we may ask that plants be removed from the workplace.”In addition to reducing stress, plants in the workplace have been found to curtail sickness and absence rates, and are even believed to boost creativity. NASA took control of the science side of things, and discovered that they help clean the air of harmful substances found indoors such as formaldehyde and ammonia (both are commonly found in cleaning products). Many of the 28 million small businesses in the U.S. have embraced these positive qualities with open arms. That being said, the organization admitted that they also bring nuisances to the workplace, including mold, bugs, and mildew; this is the main argument posited by DMS.“(It’s) part of our ongoing efforts to ensure an accessible, clean, and safe working environment for all tenants in buildings we manage,” said David Frady, DMS spokesman. “House plants can contribute to mold growth, damage desks and windows in offices, and encourage pests such as flies and mites when not properly cared for.”The argument is logical, but still a bit of a disappointment. Though no employees from the organization commented on the ruling, a few people found humor in the situation when the memo was posted to Facebook.“They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our house plants,” wrote one poster.

São Paulo based architect Guilherme Torres has developed ideas which fuse the modern and the traditional. Guilherme’s own house, designed by the architect himself, bears a chequered wood design, a kind of brise soleil called muxarabie, which is a classic feature in Eastern architecture. It was later assimilated by the Portuguese, who brought it to Brazil. This element, with its powerful aesthetic appeal, was adapted to this residence in the South of the country, and acts as a wooden ‘curtain’, allowing air flow, dimming light and also serving as a security feature.Save this picture!Axonométrica+ 51“As soon as I saw the gently sloped plot surrounded by other houses, the idea of this large panel came to me, to ensure privacy for both them and their neighbors.” This monumental house stands out as a huge rectangular monolith with two large brickwork blocks in contrast with the upper volume in concrete. A few columns, huge spans and strategic walls create exquisite fine gardens that make up a refuge for this young couple and their two small children.Save this picture!© Denílson MachadoSave this picture!© Denílson MachadoThe decoration follows a jovial and Brazilian style with an alliance of Guilherme Torres’ design, including sofas and tables, and other great names of Brazilian design such as furniture designed by Sérgio Rodrigues and Carlos Motta. The composition of overlapping these Brazilian styles with international design is balanced by pieces from Tom Dixon and Iranian carpets, all sourced by the architect. The garden, designed by Alex Hanazaki has given the house an ethereal atmosphere due to the movement of Texan plume grass.Save this picture!© Denílson MachadoSave this picture!© Denílson MachadoProject gallerySee allShow lessTurkish Court Rules in Favor of Gezi Park ProtestersArchitecture NewsArchitecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2013Event Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/395800/bt-house-studio-guilherme-torres Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio Guilherme TorresOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSão PauloTop100Studio Guilherme TorresSao PauloBrazilPublished on July 04, 2013Cite: “BT House / Studio Guilherme Torres” 04 Jul 2013.

Grocery workers in struggle coast to coast

first_imgLos Angeles grocery workers strike in 2003.About 147,000 grocery workers, repre­sented by the Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), have been fighting for contracts from coast to coast. This roundup of their struggles for living wages and decent benefits shows it pays to unite and fight.Some 30,000 grocery workers in the Puget Sound area of Washington state ratified a three-year contract on April 28. The new contract for Locals 21 and 367 and Teamsters Local 38 included improved wages, especially for those moving up the wage scale; increased funding for a high-quality, low-cost health plan; secured pensions into the future; and introduced transfer and promotion rights. After forming a united front in 2013, the three union locals have built strong partnerships with community organizations to stop nonunion grocers and support a statewide raise in the minimum wage.About 35,000 “Stop & Shop” workers in five UFCW locals in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island joined together in late February to bargain against concessionary demands, including benefit cuts and sharply reduced wages and benefits for future hires. On May 20, they voted in a decent contract with no concessions, though they didn’t get everything they wanted.On May 18, 35,000 members of UFCW Local 400, who work at Kroger in seven states stretching from Maryland to Tennessee and the District of Columbia, voted to strike at 41 stores in the region. Kroger quickly came back with better contract terms, which union members ratified on June 8. The four-year contract includes higher starting pay, raises for department heads and both full-time and part-time clerks, retiree health care through June 2017 and decent health care benefits. That’s the power of the strike threat!47,000 Southern California workers vote to strikeSome 47,000 grocery workers in seven southern California UFCW locals voted to authorize a strike on June 21 against Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and Safeway stores. Three months after the contracts expired, the companies presented their economic package. It included an inadequate wage proposal; reduced benefits, such as a big increase in employee health care costs; and a “decimated” pension plan. Entry-level employees would have to work longer before reaching higher pay grades. No strike date has been set. Talks will continue.Union officials said the grocery chains want to cut costs in anticipation of the state minimum wage rising to $15 an hour by 2020. Now the starting salary is $10.10 an hour. Union president Mickey Kasparian noted that the strike vote “may create a leverage point for us. … We want to get to a resolution.” (San Diego Union-Tribune, June 20)Workers at Vons, Albertsons and Ralphs were part of a historically long 141-day strike in 2003-2004. Miro Copic, a marketing lecturer at San Diego State University, told the San Diego Union-Tribune the last strike helped push consumers to nonunion alternatives. At that time, the chains had more than 50 percent of the market share. Now, it’s about 30 percent, with 30 new grocery stores opening in San Diego County by the end of the year. “A protracted strike can create more problems for these chains,” he added. “That’s the last thing they want at this point.” (June 20) Stay tuned.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Required fields are marked * School that features one-to-one instruction, flexible scheduling and open enrollment options is finding more and more of a role in education today. Halstrom Academy continues to see an increase in part-time and full-time enrollment from families who seek a tailored approach to learning. Halstrom was on the cutting edge when it pioneered the one student to one teacher classroom model in 1985, and is still there today as it provides instruction in a technology-rich teaching environment utilizing iPads loaded with eTextbooks and learning apps, and classes scheduled to fit into the student’s schedule – not the other way around.On January 27, 2013, Halstrom will open its ninth Southern California campus right here in Pasadena. Ani Zeneian, Director of the Halstrom Pasadena campus, shares her excitement for the opening: “We have received numerous requests from Pasadena residents to open a campus in their neighborhood. As a Pasadena resident myself, I believe the value of 1:1 instruction and flexible scheduling options will help many students in grades 6-12 find a love for learning” she says.She goes onto say, “It’s amazing seeing the transformation in students who once struggled in a larger classroom. Now at Halstrom, we see them blossom into confident and caring young adults.”Many types of students choose to attend Halstrom. From aspiring professional athletes and artists and young working professionals, to unique learners such as students with social distraction issues or ADHD, students from all walks of life find Halstrom a place where they can reach their full potential in and out of the classroom because school is designed around them and their needs. Notable Halstrom alumni include actress Blake Lively, Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen, professional skateboarder and MTV star Ryan Scheckler.Woodland Hills Campus Director, Lisa Bournoutian says “A majority of students who graduate from Halstrom go on to attend prestigious universities, such as Stanford, USC, Loyola Marymount, SMU and Columbia. The skills they learn here help prepare them for how tough classes are at the college level.”Halstrom is accredited by Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and offers more than 150 AP, UC/CSU certified and NCAA approved classes. Classes are 45 minutes with 3-5 hours of schoolwork per class each week. Ms. Zeneian goes on to say, “At Halstrom we encourage students to stay on campus to finish their schoolwork in one of our two study areas with teacher supervision, eliminating homework distress at home. Staying on campus is great for the students because they can ask their teacher questions and complete their schoolwork, and once they leave school it’s their time to enjoy extracurricular activities, work or family time.”Students at Halstrom are encouraged to run for Student Government, join or create a school club, participate in numerous field trips (some regional with other Halstrom campuses) and lead volunteer and charitable activities on and off campus. “This year, the Los Angeles region took a field trip to the California Science Center, visited historical Olvera Street, and participated in the coastal clean up day at Topanga State Beach. The kids and the teachers had a blast!” says Ms. Bournoutian.In addition, Halstrom ensures students learn what they are taught. Students must pass each lesson with a minimum of 80% before moving onto to the next. If the student doesn’t understand the material, the teacher will modify his/her teaching style and lesson plan so that the student masters the content being taught.Halstrom Academy will open its Pasadena campus January 27 at 35 N. Lake Avenue, Suite 250, Pasadena. (626) 500-0050. www.halstromacademy.orglast_img read more
