UK CMA to probe Evolution’s NetEnt acquisition

first_imgPrior to the CMA launching its investigation, Evolution said it had hoped to complete the acquisition by 2 November this year. The Authority will analyse this feedback and announce whether the investigation will proceed to a second phase on or before 16 November. 22nd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy It was a similar story for NetEnt, which began the week with shares trading at SEK76.50, but closed yesterday at SEK74.00. NetEnt’s shares are trading up 1.37% at SEK74.00 per share in Stockholm on Tuesday (22 September) morning. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance Legal & compliance However, the CMA has stepped in to establish whether the merger will result in a “substantial lessening of competition” in the UK market. Upon announcing the investigation yesterday, Evolution shares dropped from an opening price of SEK595.40 to as low as SEK567.20, before closing at SEK574.40. However, the price continued to recover today, trading up 1.47% at SEK580.20 per share at the time of writing.

In addition, board members who in total directly or indirectly control 8.48% of shares and 23.20% of votes in NetEnt expressed they intended to undertake to accept the offer. NetEnt chairman Mathias Hedlund also welcomed the offering and said that the combination of his group’s reach in online slots and Evolution’s live casino product would give it greater leverage in expanding markets, such as North America. Evolution in June tabled a bid worth SEK19.6bn (£1.73bn/€1.88bn/$2.21bn) for casino games developer NetEnt, in a deal it said signalled its intent to become “the world leader in the online gaming industry”.last_img read more

Aviva describes it as “a place for anyone involved in community projects, local causes and charities to connect, share their experiences and ideas, and get free support and guidance”. And of course a place to “stay updated on this year’s Aviva Community Fund”.The fundraising focus for March is part of the company’s aim to “build stronger communities that are resilient in the face of challenges so that everyone has the opportunity to thrive today, tomorrow and in the future.”UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake is the guest moderator for the month, tasked with sharing resources, opportunities and ideas. This involves posting some useful fundraising resources and examples, answering some of the group members questions, and encouraging members to share their experiences and fundraising expertise.The month has been divided into four week-long topics:digitalcommunitylegacyeventsThis is the first time that the group has had a particular theme, and fundraising took priority because it was the most commonly requested topic. It is likely that future months will be dedicated to different themes involved in running a small or grassroots charity.Which other charities and community groups are on the Aviva Community Group on Facebook? You can get an idea by looking at community projects which received funding in the recently completed 2018 Aviva Community Fund.  270 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Fewer African Americans vote in primaries

first_imgRecent electoral data indicates that the number of African Americans who are voting in the Democratic primaries and caucuses has taken a precipitous decline since 2008, when Barack Obama was elected president.Despite the much-championed reliance by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign on the African-American electorate, this trend of declining participation could be an ominous sign for the Democrats in the November general elections.Compared to their turnout in the 2008 Democratic primary, when Barack Obama was on the ballot, the number of African-American voters in the March 15 primaries declined drastically, by about 40 percent in Ohio, 38 percent in Florida and 34 percent in North Carolina.The super PAC called “Black Votes Matter,” founded by Charlie King, warns that even though primary turnouts are normally less than in general elections, the Democratic Party must not assume that it can mobilize the necessary electoral support to ensure a Clinton victory if she maintains her lead in delegates.“It will be very hard for the Hillary campaign alone to have a message that excites Reagan Democrats and the 4 million new Black Barack Obama voters to vote. That is why Donald Trump poses a real challenge,” King said. “And if that is not corrected … states like Ohio, Florida and Virginia can turn to Republican-leaning states. …Trump could become president.” (New York Post, March 18)King, who has been a Democratic Party strategist, told the New York Times, “No one has captured the real dilemma in the 2016 election. It’s not a question of whether Hillary Clinton would get 90 percent of the Black vote. The question is: 90 percent of what?” (March 3)2012 presidential election results indicated that African-American voters contributed significantly to Obama’s campaign, winning slim margins of victory over Republican candidate Mitt Romney in Florida by 50-49 percent, Ohio by 50-48 percent; Virginia by 51-48 percent and Pennsylvania by 52-47 percent. A higher African-American turnout is presumed to have been decisive in winning a Democratic nominee in North Carolina for the first time in decades.The Times noted, “Even Mrs. Clinton’s strong victory in South Carolina, which was celebrated for her dominance among African-American voters, obscured a decline in Black turnout of about 40 percent.” (March 3)Nonetheless, Clinton’s supporters suggest that the prospects of a Trump victory, if he receives the GOP nomination, will inspire traditional Democratic constituencies to vote in great numbers in November. Robert Zimmerman, Clinton fundraiser, said, “There will be a spiritual fervor for Democrats to come out and vote.” (NY Post, March 17)African-American votes for SandersMeanwhile, a growing number of African Americans and other oppressed groups are voting for Sen. Bernie Sanders, illustrating the lack of enthusiasm for Clinton. The exit polls showed this in Ohio, Illinois and Missouri, where African-American support for Sanders rivaled that in Michigan. While Clinton won the majority of African-American votes, Sanders increased his percentage in these states, compared to his performance in the South.Exit polls say Sanders did not exceed 20 percent of the Black vote in Southern states, but he won 28 percent in Michigan and Ohio, 29 percent in Illinois, and 32 percent in Missouri. (ajc.com, March 17)In Michigan, where Sanders staged an upset against Clinton, voter turnout exceeded expectations. Some 2.5 million cast ballots — the largest level of participation since 1972, when George Wallace won the Democratic primary there over the cross-district busing issue.However, more Republicans turned out than Democrats. Some 1,322,742 voters participated in the Republican primary, giving Trump a victory, while 1,193,169 voted in the Democratic primary. (mlive.com, March 9)Low Democratic voter turnoutThis participation level is reflected throughout the entire Democratic electoral base where Clinton is the favorite candidate among the party hierarchy and its Wall Street backers.The March 3 New York Times said, “In Nevada, exit polls suggested that Hispanic voters — who have helped push the once deeply Republican state toward Democrats in national elections — voted in significantly lower numbers than in 2008. In Iowa, where Mrs. Clinton barely won after a hotly fought battle with Sanders, exit polls suggested that turnout for voters under the age of 30 dropped by roughly 40 percent from 2008.”The closeness of the primary results in Illinois, Clinton’s home state, and Missouri, portends much for the general election’s outcome, in relation to the degree of interest in supporting Clinton. Although Democratic Party leaders and elected officials speak confidently about the July convention, there are still 31 more primaries and caucuses.Despite suggestions that Clinton is on her way to clinching the nomination, she only leads Sanders by 317 delegates, with 1,147 to Sanders’ 830. Illustrating how undemocratic is the selection process for nominees, 712 superdelegates have pledged their allegiance to Clinton, giving her the advantage. These superdelegates can allegedly switch to Sanders’ side if he over­comes Clinton in the upcoming elections.Largely due to the Trump campaign, the Republicans have a greater turnout in primaries and caucuses than do the Democrats. The March 14 San Diego Union Tribune noted — with graphs of states’ electoral participation — that “Republican voters have been turning out in record numbers in the primary contests held so far. Democrats on the other hand are showing up in lower numbers than they did in 2008, the last open election.”In other notable election events, African-American communities voted out two county prosecutors in Democratic primaries: Anita Alvarez, in Cook County, Ill., and Tim McGinty in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. These electoral results reflected the mass outrage at police killings of African-American youth: Laquan McDonald, age 17, and Tamir Rice, age 12.No matter which party wins, nationally oppressed and working people will face the necessity of building an independent political movement to challenge and defeat the inevitable programs of economic austerity, state repression and imperialist militarism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Steve Scully of C-SPAN is still set to moderate from Miami. “The commission changed the debate style, and that’s not acceptable to us,” Trump said. “I beat him in the first debate, I beat him easily.”Biden increases lead over Trump after debate and president’s COVID-19 diagnosis Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden waves as he boards his campaign plane at New Castle Airport in New Castle, Delaware, Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020., en route to Arizona.

(Gary Monreal/Monreal Photography LLC/Wauwatosa Police Department via AP)Officer Joseph Mensah will not face chargers for the fatal shooting of Alvin Cole, a 17-year-old Black teen, in February, according to CBS.Cole was shot outside of the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, after police responded to a report of a man who was seen with a gun. According to District Attorney John Chisholm’s report, Mensah fired serval shots at Cole after he aimed a handgun at him.“In this case, there is sufficient evidence that Officer Mensah had an actual subjective belief that deadly force was necessary, and that belief was objectively reasonable,” Chisholm said. The Wauwatosa Common Council on Tuesday approved a five-year $760,000 contract to provide officers with body cameras. Mensah and other officers at the scene did not have body cameras. Hurricane Delta heading on path for U.S.Hurricane Delta made landfall early Wednesday along the Yucatan Peninsula, with winds estimated at 110 mph, according to NBC.Delta moved into the Gulf of Mexico after toppling trees and cutting electricity of parts of Cancun and Cozumel and is on track to hit the U.S. coast Friday.Forecasters expect Delta to strengthen as it moves in the gulf’s warm waters; however, it could weaken as it approaches the U.S. coast.

Newspaper editor released on bail after 24 hours

first_imgNews Photo : Philimon Bulawayo/Reuters ZimbabweAfrica September 1, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en News Receive email alerts Follow the news on Zimbabwe Organisation Reports to go further ZimbabweAfrica Help by sharing this information Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell November 27, 2020 Find out more Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono denied bail December 1, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspaper editor released on bail after 24 hours November 12, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders hails today’s release of The Standard editor Nevanji Madanhire after he had been detained for about 24 hours in Harare’s Rhodesville police station.He was freed on bail of 100 U.S. dollars by judge Don Ndirowei, who ordered an investigation into a complaint by Madanhire’s lawyer, Chris Mhike, about the length of Madanhire’s detention.Mhike said the police had violated a basic right by holding his client for so long after he turned himself in. “It seems that the dark times of human rights violations are back,” he said. “I urge the judicial authorities to investigation.Reporters Without Borders supports Mhike’s statements and appeals to the authorities to call the police to order.——————————————————01-12-10- Newspaper editor arrested in Harare, shortwave radio sets seized in rural areas- Reporters Without Borders is very disturbed by yesterday’s arrest of Nevanji Madanhire, the editor of the Harare-based weekly The Standard, and calls for his immediate release.The press freedom organization condemns the threatening methods being used by the police and the climate of fear they have created for Zimbabwean journalists. We regret that freedom of opinion is being gagged in this manner in the run-up to next year’s elections and at a time when President Robert Mugabe has made it clear he wants to put an end to the coalition government.Madanhire’s arrest came four days after his correspondent in the southwestern city of Bulawayo, Nqobani Ndlovu, was freed at a judge’s behest from Khami prison, where he had been held for nine days. An earlier Reporters Without Borders release condemned Ndlovu’s arrest on 17 November for an article questioning the probity of the local police .The Harare police initially tried to arrest Madanhire on 29 November, when they went with a warrant to Alpha Media Holdings, the company that owns The Standard, but Madanhire, who had been in hiding for the previous 10 days, was not there.Accompanied by his lawyer, he turned himself into the police the next day and is now held at Rhodesville police station in Harare, where he is being questioned by members of the “Law and Order” section of the Criminal Investigation Department.Reporters Without Borders has also learned that the police in rural areas have for some time been confiscating shortwave radio sets from people caught listening to programmes made by Zimbabwean journalists in exile. The press freedom organization firmly condemns the use of such methods to censor information and restrict individual freedom. They must stop at once, and the sets must be returned to their owners.NGOs recently distributed shortwave radio sets to rural residents to enable them to receive alternative radio programmes broadcast from abroad. Studio 7, Radio VOP (Voice of the People) and Shortwave Radio Africa – broadcast from Washington, South Africa and London, respectively – have around 1 million listeners. Studio 7 contributed to the distribution of radio sets so that people could listen to something other than the pro-government Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC).Five homes in Bikita West, in the province of Masvingo, were raided on 25 November and radio sets were seized. Norbert Chinyike and Charles Mhizha, two supporters of the Movement for Democratic Change (the former opposition party currently in a shaky coalition with Mugabe’s ZANU-PF), were arrested after radio sets were found in their possession. They were later released without being charged.Shortly before that, police searched the offices of the NGO Democratic Councils Forum in Gweru and arrested an employee after discovering radio sets that were awaiting distribution in the countryside.Jastone Mazhale, the president of the Gwanda Agenda pressure group, said police inspected his offices and questioned him about radio sets. He said they told him they were acting on orders from police headquarters in Harare.Radio sets that been distributed to rural residents by NGOs were seized by police in Mashonaland East on 27 October.A representative of the human rights group ZimRights said police accompanied by members of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) carried out an operation in Murehwa district, confiscating radio sets that had been distributed by NGOs and threatening the residents who were found with them.National police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena said he was unaware of such incidents but promised to make enquiries.“We condemn this large-scale censorship campaign being carried out in rural areas of the country where access to news is already limited and where the authorities deliberately try to keep the media presence to a minimum,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “These measures are designed to limit the population’s access to freely-reported news and to ensure that the views expressed by pro-government media are not challenged by the views of independent and opposition media,” Julliard added. “This is an attack on media diversity.”last_img read more
