Kazakhmys boosts profit

first_img Kazakhmys, the world’s 10th largest copper miner, said yesterday its full-year profit jumped 74 per cent thanks to higher metal prices.Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation, excluding special items, rose to $2.84bn (£1.8bn). The figure included a $903m contribution from its 26 per cent stake in Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation (ENRC).Earlier this month, Kazakhmys chief executive Oleg Novachuk said he was exploring “strategic options” for the stake in ENRC. At yesterday’s closing price, the stake is worth about £3.1bn.The biggest one-off item in the 2010 results was $130m to fund major social projects in Kazakhstan.Prices for benchmark London Metal Exchange copper rose 31 per cent last year and hit a record high last month, driven partly by rising demand from markets such as China.Kazakhmys said cost pressures increased over 2010, as they have for many miners, although its copper production costs remained globally competitive at 89 cents per pound. Meanwhile, the miner announced that Peter Hickson will retire from the board and will be replaced by a new independent non-executive director in due course. David Munro will also be stepping down from his position as development director, although he will continue to serve as a part-time executive with Kazakhmys. Eduard Ogay, chief executive of subsidiary Kazakhmys Corporation, will be appointed to the board. Ogay joined the company in 2001.The final dividend, which had already been declared, was 16 cents a share.?The full year-dividend is up 144 per cent on 2009 to 22 cents. Shares in the firm closed 0.1 per cent higher yesterday at 1,426p. whatsapp Tags: NULL Kazakhmys boosts profit Tuesday 29 March 2011 8:42 pm whatsappcenter_img KCS-content Read This NextWATCH: Shohei Ohtani continues home run tear, Los Angeles Angels winSportsnautYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldUndo Sharelast_img read more

Pennsylvania sports betting revenue slumps in February

first_img Sports betting revenue in Pennsylvania fell by 25.4% month-on-month in February despite the state’s handle only falling slightly, according to the latest figures released by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).Pennsylvania’s sports wagering handle totalled $31.5m (£23.7m/€27.7m) last month, compared to January’s record figure of $32m and almost double the $16.2m posted in December.However, sports betting revenue slumped from $2.61m in January to $1.95m in February as a result of player winnings. Pennsylvania was able to take $700,850 in tax from sports wagering activities during the month.The decline in both revenue and handle, albeit the latter only being a slight drop on the previous month, comes despite the NFL’s showpiece Super Bowl event taking place in February.Rivers Casino claimed top spot in the state’s market in terms of both handle and revenue. Sports betting handle hit $8.15m, down from $9.54m in January, while revenue dipped from $641,000 to $627,520.SugarHouse Casino, active in the market since December 2018, saw its handle drop from $10.8m in January to $7.09m, but revenue rocketed from $104,000 to $522,300.Elsewhere, Parx Casino, which only began sports betting operations in January, reported an improved handle of $6.97m, compared to $5.38m in the previous month, but revenue plummeted from $1.17m to $370,000.Hollywood Casino, supported by a William Hill-powered sportsbook, posted the lowest revenue of the six venues that were fully operational during February. The operator reported revenue of just $13,900 off a handle of $3.74m, a stark contrast to January’s figures of $641,000 off $5.54m.Meanwhile, Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment’s Parx South Philadelphia Turf and Harrah’s Philadelphia in Delaware County, both enjoyed growth in their first month of full operations in the state.Parx South posted revenue of $275,900 from a handle of $2.60m, compared to $92,000 on handle of $858,000 in January. Harrah’s Philadelphia generated revenue of $137,200 from $2.95m, up from $104,000 on a handle of $616,000 in the previous month.However, despite the overall decline in both revenue and handle in February, Pennsylvania can expect a boost in March after Paddy Power Betfair’s FanDuel opened a sportsbook at Boyd Gaming’s Valley Forge Casino Resort near Philadelphia on March 13.The 1,800sq ft sportsbook will feature seven teller windows, 29 video displays, two sports tickers and a seating area, with customers able to bet on major US sporting events and collegiate sports.Image: formulanone Topics: Finance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Regions: US Pennsylvaniacenter_img Finance Sports betting revenue in Pennsylvania fell by 25.4% month-on-month in February despite the state’s handle only falling slightly, according to the latest figures released by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

Who Is Brad Mooar?

first_img Scarlets and Wales fly-half Rhys Patchell Replacing Wayne Pivac, we get to know Brad Mooar the new Scarlets coach. Who Is New Wales Coach Wayne Pivac? The remarkable story of Tadhg Beirne Collapse Expand “The Scarlets is a rugby brand that’s known the world over, it is a winning club with an extremely proud history, passionate fans, and is aspirational in its goals.“It is humbling to be offered the opportunity to take the reins after the great work Wayne Pivac has led, as he moves on to the Wales job.”Related: Who is Wayne Pivac?Scarlets general manager Jon Daniels said: “Brad has a great understanding of what is required for success and how to build a winning culture.“Throughout the process we have been hugely impressed with Brad’s appreciation of Scarlets’ place in the community, his passion for developing players and the research he had done on our heritage.” Who Is New Wales Coach Wayne Pivac? Find out about the man who took over… Who Is Brad Mooar?New Zealander Brad Mooar has been announced as the man to replace Wayne Pivac as the head coach of the Scarlets at the end of the 2019 Super Rugby season. Pivac is set to become the Wales coach after the 2019 World Cup in Japan with Mooar coming in after a series of successful jobs.Most recently, he worked as an assistant coach to Scott Robertson and the Crusaders who have won the last two Super Rugby titles in a row. He has been in that role for three years and beforehand led the Southland Stags in the Mitre 10 Cup.After starting his coaching career with the Christchurch Colts and then the Canterbury Colts, Mooar eventually shifted to South Africa to coach Eastern Province Kings where he had more success leading them to a Currie Cup Division I title.He then became an assistant coach for the Southern Kings under Matt Sexton before taking up the Stags and then Crusaders roles.Mooar working with Southland Stags (Getty Images)A former fly-half with Canterbury B, Mooar progressed nicely through the ranks before taking his career overseas. He quickly returned to Christchurch though to take up coaching.Interestingly, he is also a former solicitor who was admitted as barrister and solicitor to the High Court of New Zealand in 1997. Mooar will bring plenty of experience to the role and will look to carry on the success of Pivac – who won the Pro12 with Scarlets in 2017.Mooar said of the move: “The opportunity to take on the role of head coach at the Scarlets is simply too good to pass up and is both an exciting challenge for myself, and a fantastic opportunity for my family to experience life on the other side of the world.”center_img How do you think Mooar is going to get on?

Aviva to help recruit 10,000 volunteers for British Red Cross

The British Red Cross “responds to an emergency every four hours in the UK” – from fires, to extreme weather conditions and flooding, and national emergencies including acts of terror.The willingness to offer support highlighted in the report might in part be due to the fact that 21% of the people surveyed said that they had themselves witnessed or experienced a large-scale emergency such as fire and flooding.Registering for the community reserve volunteers “takes just ten minutes”.No specialist skills are required. Volunteers will be called in by text if crisis strikes in their area. They could find themselves undertaking vital practical jobs like packing food parcels, blowing up airbeds for rest centres and filling sandbags in times of flooding.Any necessary training will be given at the scene of the crisis and volunteers can confirm their availability when they are contacted.

However, more than half (53%) of people would not know what to do if a disaster struck.Indeed, the biggest reasons that would hold people back from helping in an emergency were not knowing how they could help (27%) and feeling like they didn’t have the right skills (19%).The report, ‘When Crisis Hits: mobilising kindness in our communities’, was published today.The British Red Cross hopes to attract 10,000 people to the scheme by the end of 2019. Currently more than 20,500 people volunteer for the British Red Cross.  Simon Lewis, Head of Crisis Response at the British Red Cross, said: “The findings of our report with Aviva show that despite this desire to help, people often don’t know how best to assist or worry they don’t have the right skills to get involved. “By creating a national taskforce of community reserve volunteers we want to put local people at the heart of emergency response, to help communities rebuild and recover faster.“Everyone has a role to play when disaster strikes, even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge difference. It’s quick and easy to sign up online community reserve volunteers, you don’t need specialist skills and we need your help now more than ever.”  Graham Brogden, Head of Property Technical Claims at Aviva UK, said:  “At Aviva we understand how traumatic and disruptive major events can be to communities.  Our own claims teams are often among the first on the ground when incidents occur and we see first-hand how important it can be for communities to pull together in times of crisis. “That’s why we’re proud to be launching the community reserve volunteer programme as part of our ongoing partnership with the British Red Cross. By recruiting 10,000 volunteers across the UK, we hope to support the vital work of emergency responders and the British Red Cross teams in helping communities manage the unexpected, as well as help prevent or limit the damage caused.”WATCH: From survivor to volunteer: this man was inspired by those who helped himThomas Milburn, 26, signed up as a community reserve volunteer after being assisted by British Red Cross volunteers when he was badly burnt in the Shoreham Air Show disaster.  231 total views,  3 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Colm Claffey, Irish Water’s Infrastructure Programme Regional Lead said: “The project will increase the capacity of the wastewater collection network to cater for existing residential and commercial developments. It will also reduce the incidences of sewer flooding in the area and improve the water quality of the River Swilly by reducing the frequency and volume of untreated wastewater overflows from the wastewater collection network to the river.”The first phase of this project was carried out from 2004 to 2006 which included improvement works to trunk sections of the existing wastewater collection network.The second phase was undertaken between 2010 and 2012 and included the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant and a new sludge hub centre.Residents and businesses in the affected areas will be notified ahead of the work commencing and provided with contact details should they have any questions.The Project Team will work closely with residents and businesses to minimise any potential disruption and with An Garda Síochána and the Roads Authority to manage traffic while the works are underway. Irish Water and Donegal County Council apologise for any inconvenience caused by this essential work and thank you for your continued co-operation.
