Posen warns against inflation “overreaction”

first_img Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee member Adam Posen has warned policymakers not to overreact to inflation which remains above target.“The first point I want to make is that neither our forecast nor our policy going forward should overreact reflexively to that above target inflation, even though it will persist for the next few months after the coming VAT rise,” he said.

Svenska Spel reveals decline in major prizes in 2019

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Lottery Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Svenska Spel lotteries and scratchcards distributed 255 prizes of SEK1m or more, a 9.9% decrease from 2018, for combined winnings of SEK 1.28bn (£103.4m/€121.3m/$134.4m)  an 8.5% year-on-year decline. 20th January 2020 | By Daniel O’Boylecenter_img Topics: Lottery Svenska Spel lotteries and scratchcards distributed 255 prizes of SEK1m (£80,867/€94,787/$105,071) or more, a 9.9% decrease from 2018, for combined winnings of SEK 1.28bn (£103.4m/€121.3m/$134.4m)  an 8.5% year-on-year decline.Pierre Jonsson, winning ambassador at Svenska Spel, said the decline in winnings is largely because 2018 featured two wins of the Drömvinsten (dream win), in which a player matches seven numbers on the Lotto and two on the Joker lottery.When the Dream Win is achieved, players who match 6 Lotto numbers each win SEK1m, which Jonsson said boosted 2018’s number of millionaires figure by around 50.Lotteries made up the majority of prizes and winners, generating 144 prizes of SEK1m or more for a combined SEK1.03bn.The Lotto 1 lottery produced the most prizes of SEK1m or more, with 75, with jackpots coming to a combined SEK257.6m. However, the Euro Jackpot, despite only 19 prizes of at least SEK1m, produced much more prize money among these players, with combined jackpots of SEK647.7m.The Joker lottery distributed SEK60m among six winners, while Lotto 2 gave out 27.4m worth of prizes worth SEK1m-plus to 19 players. The Andra Chansen (second chance) Lotto gave out SEK15m worth of prizes, each worth SEK1m, to 15 winners, while the Keno lottery gave out 25.5m and created 10 millionaires.Svenska Spel distributed 111 prizes of SEK1m-plus on scratchards, giving these players combined SEK247.7m worth of prizes.The Klöver-Triss scratchcard distributed the most winnings, at SEK152.7m, and created the most millionaires, at 50. The Triss scratchard distributed SEK55m among 43 players who won SEK1m or more.TV-Triss and Skrapspel each created nine millionaires, but TV-Triss distributed a combined SEK31m to these players, whereas Skrapspel distributed SEK9m.Of these 255 prizes, 150 went to men, 104 to women and one to a syndicate. The average age of all million winners (excluding the one syndicate) in 2019 was 56.2 years. The average age of lottery million winners was 58.1, while for scratchcards it was 53.8.The Euro Jackpot prizes included SEK562m in a single jackpot, awarded to a couple from Örebro after the 15 March draw. The next largest prize was SEK25.6m on 30 August, also a Euro Jackpot prize. The largest prize from another lottery was SEK21.5m, from Lotto 1 on 30 March.The largest scratchcard prize was SEK12m from Klöver-Triss, which was won five times.“It is a nice year of winning that we can now sum up for our number games and lotteries. Last year’s jewel in the crown was obviously Sweden’s biggest game win of all time,” Jonsson said.

Matthew Dumigan | Saturday, 1st February, 2020 | More on: REL ULVR Image source: Getty Images. It shouldn’t be news to you by now that investing is not typically a method that can be used to become a millionaire overnight. That said, when you commit to holding your investments for at least five years, by selecting good quality companies that have growth potential, it means that the path to generating wealth over time becomes more simple than you can imagine.With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 stocks that meet the criteria of being quality companies with great long-term growth prospects that you should consider buying and holding for the long term.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…UnileverThe British-Dutch transnational consumer goods company Unilever (LSE: ULVR) owns over 400 brands and boasts that you’ll find one of at least one of its brands in 98% of households in the UK! The familiar household names such as Lipton, Ben & Jerry’s, PG Tips and Pot Noodle and many more all come under the reach of Unilever.In fact, the company now boasts a market cap of around £118 billion, and despite a falter in the share price over the last year, the company has even averaged an increase of just over 10% in its share price over the last five years.Growth prospects look strong thanks to a considerable exposure to emerging markets such as Brazil, India and China where the incomes of many consumers are growing each year. This should in turn fuel demand for many of the products supplied by Unilever’s brands leading to further share price growth. Not to mention the proven ability of the stock to perform well even during times of financial crisis.This, combined with the fact that the company’s dividend to investors has grown at an annual rate of 8% presents an attractive stock which every investor would do well to consider buying right now and holding for the long term. RelxRelx (LSE: REL) is a global provider of information and analytics for professional and business customers across industries. Its databases and analytical software – which are used in the scientific, legal, business and healthcare fields – are vital for customers as well as being increasingly in demand thanks to the ever-expanding nature of information.Shareholders have enjoyed an annualised return of 15% over the last five years, and whilst past performance is by no means an indicator of future returns, Relx remains in a strong position with regards to its growth prospects with the company forecasting further growth of 10% this year.On top of this, the company’s impressive revenue, cash flow, and earnings growth have brought about an almost 70% increase in dividend payments over the past five years.Whilst the price of the stock looks expensive with a price-to-earnings ratio of 28.09 at the time of writing, the company’s provision of unique, yet vital, services means that this is a stock with the potential to provide double-digit returns for investors over the coming years, adding to around a 95% growth in share price from five years ago.All things considered, I believe that an investment in these two FTSE 100 stocks should be capable of delivering fantastic long-term results over the next few decades.

World Cup 2015: South Africa 23 – 19 Wales

first_imgWHAT’S NOTSoft penalties – A silly obstruction from Luke Charteris allowed South Africa to reclaim the lead with a penalty immediately after Wales had gone 10-9 up and that wasn’t the only time the men in red gifted points to the Springboks. “We gave away four penalties in the first half, all of which came when we weren’t under much pressure,” said skipper Warburton. “They were the most crucial 12 points we gave away.”Poor skills – A wayward pass from Gethin Jenkins went right over the head of Tyler Morgan and into touch when Wales were attacking in only the second minute. If the outside centre had taken the pass he would have been in for the first try, but the prop’s skills weren’t up to it, much to Jenkins’ disgust.Bad manners – The fans have been superb at this World Cup, so it was disppointing to hear the South African contingent in the Twickenham crowd booing Biggar when he lined up a penalty in the 63rd minute. The noise didn’t put the Wales fly-half off, but it was a shame it happened at all. A 74th-minute try from veteran scrum-half and skipper Fourie du Preez took South Africa into the semi-finals of the World Cup and broke Welsh hearts, as, until then, Sam Warburton‘s men had led for all but three minutes of the second half.Wales had turned round 13-12 ahead at half-time, with Handre Pollard‘s four penalties being outweighed by a try from Gareth Davies and a penalty, a conversion and a drop-goal from Dan Biggar.Two more Biggar penalties and a penalty and drop-goal from Pollard left Wales in front 19-18 inside the last ten minutes, but Duane Vermeulen picked up from a South Africa scrum inside the Wales 22, broke blind up the left and sent du Preez over for the winning score.Heartbroken: Sam Warburton and George North applaud the fans at the end.

He crossed the gainline 11 times – more than any other player in the match – and made 55m on the ball in all.Dan Biggar – The Wales No 10 had another magnificent game. His outstanding kick and collect set up the first try for Davies, as he launched the ball skyward from around 40 metres out, took the catch perfectly and Davies was on hand to take the pass and cruise over the line. Biggar also kicked 14 points and missed just one, very difficult, shot at goal.Dan dares: Biggar had another brilliant game and scored 14 points. (Photo: Getty Images)Executing under pressure – They were behind for almost the entire second half, but as the clock ticked towards the last five minutes South Africa executed an excellent attacking move from a scrum. Vermeulen picked up and went from the back, under pressure, and found du Preez in support with a brilliant pass. Pollard missed the conversion, but the try was enough.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Bethlehem and Nazareth] The gift of spending Holy Week in the Holy Land grew deeper and more real on March 28 for those on pilgrimage with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.In a small sample of the ecumenical hospitality that the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem both enjoys and offers, Curry and those traveling with him were the guests in Bethlehem of Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Jordan and Patriarchal Commissioner to Bethlehem Theophylaktos. The group traveled there at his invitation to hold Morning Prayer in St. George’s Chapel at the Church of the Nativity and meet with him. He also welcomed them to pray in the Grotto of the Nativity below the church, which is undergoing extensive renovation and conservation.Theophylaktos later offered the group sweets, short glasses of brandy and small cups of Arabic coffee during the early-morning conversation in his office in the newer 250-year-old wing of the Church of the Nativity. The older part of the church is 500 years old. His office walls were lined with religious icons, as well as an icon symbolizing the 2 million pilgrims who annually visit the church: a flat-screen TV with nine camera views of the shrine. Five church groups had arrived at 5 a.m. that morning to tour the church.Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Jordan and Patriarchal Commission to Bethlehem Theophylaktos lights candles in St. George’s Chapel at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. The archbishop opened the chapel to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and those traveling with him to have Morning Prayer on Holy Wednesday. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“It is a joy to be with you and to meet you,” Curry told Theophylaktos. “And I bring you greetings from your brothers and sisters in the Episcopal Church. We pray the blessings of the crucified and risen Lord on your ministry.“We pray for you and for peace and justice in the whole world. We must learn to live as brothers and sisters.”Curry addressed political realities in the United States, saying “our country is very troubled right now.“Interestingly enough, it is young people and young children who are raising their voices and calling for our country to live in love,” Curry said, adding in an allusion to the setting of the conversation, “it may be that as the Bible says, a little child shall lead them – again.”Theophylaktos responded, “We must pray.”Young people at Christ School, a ministry of Christ Church, the Anglican parish in Nazareth, later in the day spoke to the group about their efforts to make peace among Muslim, Jewish and Christian young people. To that end, Jerusalem Peacebuilders, which has roots in the diocese, promotes what it calls “transformational, person-to-person encounters among the young people of Jerusalem, the United States and the Holy Land.” Moreover, it provides them with the opportunities, relationships and skills to become future leaders for peace in the global community.Jerusalem Peacebuilders also oversees three youth leadership programs in New Haven, Connecticut; Houston, Texas; and Brattleboro, Vermont. Each camp runs two weeks and includes leadership skills, dialogues, guest speakers and a faith-based component. Participants who complete all three years become counselors in the programs to further strengthen and develop their leadership and peace-building knowledge and skills.The United Thank Offering recently gave the group’s regional director, Jack Karn, a 2018 Young Adult Grant of $2,500 to help fund new in-school leadership and peace-building programs in the Galilee area of the Holy Land where Nazareth is located. Karn is from the Diocese of Vermont.One young Palestinian Arab student told the group that he joined the organization because, as a Muslim, he wanted to build peace.“I want my country to be back. I want Palestine and I want a solution to all the violence,” Yousef Hassan said.Some members of Jerusalem Peacebuilders talk with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry after their presentation at Christ School, a ministry of Christ Church, the Anglican parish in Nazareth. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceHe also said the program has helped him know himself better and become “a calmer person.” Because of all that goes on where he lives, he said, “it’s really hard to be a peaceful person or a calm person. Most people are really aggressive.”A Christian student, Ghenwa Abu Ahmad, said the camp experience taught her to see herself in others. “You see how similar you are, despite our differences in appearances or religion,” she said.At the Church of the Nativity, Theophylaktos spoke of the peaceful relationship between his church and Anglicans, which is long-standing. While the Very Rev. Hosam Naoum, dean of Anglican Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr in Jerusalem, translated for the archbishop, Theophylaktos used English to emphasize his point.“We have a special love for Anglicans,” Theophylaktos said in English.“They never hesitate to welcome us,” Naoum said. “When we come here, it is like coming home.”The dean explained that, when Anglicans arrived in the Holy Land in the 1840s, they acknowledged the Greek Orthodox patriarch. To this day, the Anglican religious leader of Jerusalem is referred to as the “Anglican archbishop in Jerusalem” instead of the “Anglican archbishop of Jerusalem,” in deference to the Greek Orthodox leader, Naoum said. When a new Anglican archbishop is enthroned, the patriarch participates in the service to bless him.Those ecumenical relations extend to the Armenian Orthodox as well, especially during their Holy Week, which this year begins on April 1, the western church’s date for Easter. Naoum said the Armenians consider Maundy Thursday to be the climax of Holy Week. As symbol of the relationship, the Armenian leaders invite the Anglican archbishop, currently the Most Rev. Suheil Dawani, to their liturgy that day, vesting him as an Armenian bishop and having him proclaim the Gospel.During the western church’s Holy Week, the Armenians give Anglicans access to the Abraham Chapel in Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre for an afternoon Eucharist. That liturgy is not possible this Holy Week because the chapel is part of the church’s extensive renovation project. The church in the Old City enshrines Calvary and the empty tomb.Naoum said it is a special experience to spend Holy Week where those events took place. “As one of the clergy here puts it, the history of salvation unites with the geography of salvation,” he said. “Those dimensions are important for the people of this place. It is not taken for granted. Those dimensions are real.”Later at the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, Franciscan priest Peter Hughes made the same point as he explained the centuries of ruins that were uncovered as the current church was built in the 1960s, a continuation of centuries of enshrining the grotto where the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mary. The excavations have yielded parts of a first-century building in which some members of what was then a sect of Christ-following Jews worshipped, a later basilica and the church built by the Crusaders.“The interesting thing in the Holy Land, in terms of our ministry, is to show that [the centuries of] continuous Christian devotion are also supported by physical archeological evidence.”“They knew something,” Curry agreed. “There’s a reason they were doing it there.”After Presiding Bishop Michael Curry prayed in the small Grotto of the Nativity shrine at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, a small boy approaches him for a hug. Photo: Sharon Jones/Episcopal News ServiceNaoum said, “The challenge is how much we can keep that sacred” so that the week’s liturgies and other events remain acts of worship rather than performance.“It is a gift and we need to keep it holy,” he added.Still, religious tourism is part of the Holy Land economy, and at Christ School, the group heard from two 10th graders, Sham Abuliel and Luna Khoury, and their teacher, Yemen Rock, about an Android app they and eight other students have developed as a mobile guide for pilgrims in Nazareth. They plan to market the app, in part, by selling chocolate bars, called Nazareth Chocolate, whose wrapper will have information about the app. It will also soon be available in the Apple App Store, Rock said.Curry was in the fifth day of a Holy Week pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Previous ENS coverage of his travels can be found here. Dawani invited Curry to make a Holy Week pilgrimage through the Holy Land.The presiding bishop is accompanied by the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church; the Rev. Margaret Rose, Episcopal Church deputy for ecumenical and interfaith relations; the Rev. Robert Edmunds, Episcopal Church Middle East partnership officer; and Sharon Jones, Curry’s executive coordinator.– The Rev.

Within a protected cove along the South Shore of Nova Scotia, at the end of a stretch of sand, a river empties out into the sea. Time and tides have created a one kilometre forested sandbar on which this beach house sits. Save this picture!© Janet KimberApproaching the site is a parallel journey between a low-lying salt marsh to the north-west and the forested sandbar to the south-east. Along that journey, the beach is never in view, and so, the project is ironic as beach houses go. Despite the dramatic location on an expanse of shoreline, the clients were drawn to the internal, cozy character of the site. Scraggly, curmudgeonly tamarack and spruce trees covered in Old Man’s Beard are very particular to some areas of Nova Scotia and thrive in the 10 cm of shallow soil here. The trees shelter the site from the openness of the beach and defend against erosion of the sandbank. A mandate of protecting the sandbank, and the clients’ appreciation of hearing the ocean, but not seeing it were starting points for siting strategy. They did not want their new house to be on display from the beach.The most one sees of the water are moments of shimmering light filtered through the treeline at the site’s southern edge. The sound of waves pull one along a worn footpath through the tree line, towards a break in the vegetation that finally reveals the coast and ocean horizon. From these initial impressions, the house tucks itself against the forest, is hidden from the shore, and beach walkers plus the resident endangered piping plovers are none the wiser.Save this picture!Floor PlanSkinned in black-stained eastern white cedar, the house recedes against the forest backdrop, and contradicts its bright interior. The design takes advantage of passive solar orientation, and catching light. At 10’ (3m) deep, the 48’ (15m) wide cantilevered roof overhang provides the perfect amount of shade in the summer, and allows the low winter sun to warm the concrete floors in the cold season. Not only does the asymmetrical gabled roof provide shelter and shade, it also leverages coastal storms, harvesting rainwater that is funnelled into three 1750 gallon (6600 litre) cisterns. The storage tanks are the sole source of potable water for the house. Save this picture!© Janet KimberTo protect against storm surges, the house is elevated by a grid of helical piles bearing 6 meters down into the sand. Above the piles, the lightweight wood-frame structure houses a straight-forward, one-level plan. Bedrooms and private areas have low-ceilings and an intimate closeness with the trees and north-west light. The tall, main living area has a wide view to the south, towards a small clearing of beach grass and the tree-line separating the house and the shore.Save this picture!© Janet KimberProject gallerySee allShow lessUMNArch Fall 2016 Lecture SeriesLecture SeriesThese are 18 of the World’s Strangest BuildingsArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeNova Tayona Architects OfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSouth ShoreCanadaPublished on August 23, 2016Cite: “Lockeport Beach House / Nova Tayona Architects ” 23 Aug 2016.
