Everi highlights Q3 recovery following H1 losses

Posted on by

first_img Gaming technology and payment solutions provider Everi Holdings says its business is showing signs of recovery in the early weeks of the third quarter, after seeing revenue plummet and losses mount in the first half of the year.Revenue for the six months to 30 June declined 40.0% to $152.0m (£115.9m/€128.3m), with the business posting a loss of $81.9m for the period, compared to an $11.3m profit in the prior year.This followed a 70.2% year-on-year decline in revenue for the second quarter of 2020 to $38.7m, which Everi noted reflected the impact of casino closures across the US from mid-March. During this period, the business saw revenue decline to zero – which already impacted first quarter performance – before venues began to reopen in May, ramping up through June.As a result of the industry shut-down, Everi began to implement cost-saving measures in March, to lower its cash burn rate, with these largely in effect by the beginning of Q2, from 1 April.For the three months to 30 June, games revenue amounted to $20.8m, down 70.0%, with a further $17.9m coming from Everi’s financial technology arm, 70.3% less than the prior year.Read the full story on iGB North America.

NYC forum on migrant caravan, Garifuna oppression, Mexican students

Posted on by

first_imgWW photo: Monica MooreheadThe New York branch of Workers World Party sponsored an Oct. 30 forum featuring the ongoing struggle of migrants, especially women, youth and children from Central America. Participants included several members of the National Solidarity Caravan who had traveled in a bus to Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Durham, N.C.; Atlanta; Jackson, Miss.; Houston; and other cities near the Texas/Mexico border. The trip’s goal was to bring broader attention to the plight of migrants and their families forced to leave their homelands to seek better jobs.Speakers included Ramiro Funez, a Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) organizer, who explained why the caravan cannot be separated from other important struggles like fighting police brutality and imperialism; supporting women’s and lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer rights; and more.Pablo Blanco, a Pace University student and Garifuna cultural activist, gave a brief history of Garifuna oppression and its relationship to the current migration of Garifunas from Central America to the Bronx in New York City. The Garifunas are people of African descent who are based in Honduras.That country suffered a right-wing coup in 2009, which resulted in the slaughter of 25,000 activists and progressives there. Blanco also spoke about the horrific treatment of Garifuna women in the U.S. The Immigration and Custom Enforcement forces many of these women to wear ankle chains to monitor their movement while they languish in shelters.Both Blanco and Funez participated in the caravan.Along with the International Action Center, the May 1 Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights and IFCO/Pastors for Peace helped to raise $1,000 for water barrels that the caravan delivered to Falfurrias, Texas. Many ­migrants die from thirst every day attempting to cross the Texas ­border. Access to water is a life-and-death issue for them.Lorena Patiño, from the MORENA Mexican political party, spoke about the disappearance of 43 protesting students from the city of Ayotzinapa. So far the Mexican government has ignored demands for news of their whereabouts, dead or alive. A possible general strike later in November is being discussed in Mexico in solidarity with the students.The three talks can be heard at workers.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Myanmar’s military junta eliminates independent media

RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Help by sharing this information Ten days after the information ministry told media to stop using the terms “junta” and “coup d’état” or face sanctions, the Myanmar Times suddenly suspended operations on 21 February “for three months,” according to the welcome message on its website. The website of the newspaper The Voice has not been updated since 1 March. March 25, 2021 Myanmar’s military junta eliminates independent media May 31, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Myanmar is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Thein Zaw, an Associated Press journalist held for more than three weeks, was finally released yesterday after charges were dropped against him. He had been violently arrested while photographing policemen during a demonstration on 27 February. Robert Bociaga, a Polish photo-journalist arrested nearly two weeks ago, was also released yesterday and is awaiting deportation. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar The military had to use stronger pressure to get two other newspapers, 7 Day News and Eleven, to stop publishing. It was only after the military authorities rescinded their licences on 8 March that they resigned themselves to stop publishing. The Eleven group nonetheless continues to post news on its website. “After targeting the newspapers, the military authorities led by Gen. Min Aung Hlaing are now blocking the digital domain in order to prevent Myanmar’s people from keeping informed about the military’s bloody crackdown on demonstrators. We urge them to immediately restore press freedom, restore Internet networks and stop targeting the journalists still daring to report in the field.” May 12, 2021 Find out more Hide or flee Last week, RSF referred the military crackdown on media and journalists to the UN special rapporteurs on the human rights situation in Myanmar and on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression. US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture May 26, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Myanmar One of the two, BBC correspondent Aung Thura, was released on 22 March after three days of interrogation and sleep deprivation. Like other reporters, he had to sign an undertaking to stop covering the events taking place in Myanmar. The other, Mizzima News journalist Than Htike Aung, is still being held. Of the at least 45 journalists arrested since the coup, 25 have been released. The others are still held. Other journalists have been the targets of reprisals for covering the protests against the military government. Two were abducted on 19 March while following the trial of Win Htein, one of the leaders of the National League for Democracy (NLD), the party whose government was brought down by the coup. “The actions taken by the military junta to eliminate news pluralism and press freedom and to persecute those journalists trying against all odds to keep working have unfortunately succeeded and access to news and information has not been in such danger in Myanmar since its democratisation in 2011,” RSF editor-in-chief Pauline Adès-Mével said. There is no longer a free press in Myanmar. The only print media have been official newspapers controlled by the military since 17 March, after the last independent daily in circulation, The Standard Time (San Taw Chain in Burmese), took the same decision as its four rivals and suspended its print edition, citing distribution problems since the coup. Finally, the military authorities are now imposing drastic restrictions on access to the Internet, which was the only way to see reliable, independent reporting. Fixed-line Internet is disconnected every night, mobile Internet has been blocked for the past 11 days, and access to public Wi-Fi networks has been reduced for the past week, according to the Internet freedom watchdog NetBlocks. Organisation News access endangered The military authorities have meanwhile been carrying our raids and equipment seizures – on 8 March at the offices of the Myanmar Now news agency and then, the next day, at the offices of the Mizzima News multimedia news group and the Kamayut Media video news website. The latter’s licence was not rescinded but two of its executives, Nathan Maung and Han Thar Nyein, have been arrested, preventing it from continuing to operate. News The only solution envisaged by most journalists to avoid arrest and police violence is to hide or flee to the remotest regions. According to The Irrawaddy, hundreds of journalists have chosen one or other of these options and, despite all the problems, some are continuing to work. Others have fled to regions that are rebel strongholds, such as the eastern state of Karen. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the restoration of media pluralism and unrestricted Internet access in Myanmar, where the military, in the weeks since staging a coup d’état on 1 February, have reasserted full control over news and information – engineering the disappearance of the last independent newspapers and imposing tight curbs on online access. News News Legal proceedings were initiated against the online media The Irrawaddy on 14 March under article 505 (a) of the penal code. This article has often been used to convict journalists critical of the military but this is the first time that an entire news organisation has been targeted. Ten journalists are currently facing up to three years in prison for covering the street protests against the coup.last_img read more

Mayor Billy the Big Mouth Bass is so moved by Crawfrere’s letter that he selects him and his friends to join the Krewe of Compassion that builds and rides the main float in the parade.Crawfrere’s bayou pals – nearsighted Oculo the Oyster, slow-talking Creole the Catfish, puny Sauté the Shrimp, and Pecan the Pelican, who can’t fly straight – are lifted out of obscurity to become the toast of Mardi Gras and New Orleans. For the first time, they feel proud of who they are.Mayor Billy is so impressed by Crawfrere’s selflessness that he dubs him King of the Mardi Gras and says Crawfrere is no longer a mere crawfish, but will forever be known as The Mardi Grasfish.“The Mardi Grasfish” was inspired by Polk’s love of Louisiana’s rustic landscapes and colorful characters and, more importantly, by the children he has treated as a physician for 35 years.“I’m a lot like Crawfrere, who teaches his friends that the sky’s the limit, and that they can overcome their disadvantages to accomplish their dreams,” Polk says, adding he feels tremendous compassion for the young people he has comforted before and after surgery as they have faced some of the most frightening moments of their lives without a parent by their side.“The Mardi Grasfish” is the first in a trilogy of Crawfrere stories that explore the ways Mardi Gras, French for “Fat Tuesday,” is celebrated around the globe. The next two books are set inBrazil and France.The picture storybook was produced by Judy O Productions and retails for $18.35 at www.themardigrasfish.com and at Vroman’s Bookstores in Pasadena and in The Huntington Hospital gift shop.A Kindle edition is also available on www.amazon.com for $2.99.

House Subcommittee to Hold Second Hearing on FHA’s Financial State

Posted on by

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The second in a series of hearings to examine the financial health of the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) will take place next week in Washington, D.C., according to an announcement on Friday from the chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services, Representative Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas).The Housing and Insurance Subcommittee of the House Committee on Financial Services will hold the second hearing in the series, entitled The Future of Housing in America: Oversight of the Federal Housing Administration, Part II, on Thursday, February 26, beginning at 10 a.m. Eastern time. Witnesses for the hearing will be announced next week.The first hearing in the series took place on February 11 in the House Committee on Financial Services, where U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julián Castro testified before Congress for the first time since being appointed to that position in July 2014.Republicans on the HFS Committee grilled Castro in that hearing on the FHA’s financial state, and in particular the Mutual Mortgage Insurance (MMI) Fund, which reported a capital reserve ratio of 0.41 percent in November – less than a quarter of its required 2 percent level. Castro repeatedly praised the fund’s recent growth, predicted that the MMI fund would reach that 2 percent level within two years, and defended FHA’s recent lowering of the mortgage insurance premiums by 50 basis points down to 0.85 percent.Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri), the chairman of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee, was one of the most vocal critics of FHA’s policies during last week’s hearing.”Today’s testimony from Secretary Castro was disconcerting to say the least,” Luetkemeyer said in a statement following Castro’s testimony to the Committee. “The Secretary’s answers were as inconsistent and alarming as FHA’s policies. It is clear to me that this agency suffers from not only misguided policy but also mismanagement. FHA continues to try to grow its way out of a problem, and it is putting the American taxpayers at risk. FHA today holds less than one quarter of the capital it is statutorily required to hold in the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund. When you remove the 2013 taxpayer bailout of $1.7 billion and billions of dollars more in Justice Department settlements, the capitalization of the fund falls to .08 percent. If a private company operated the way FHA operates, it would be shut down.”Also next week, according to Hensarling’s announcement on Friday, there will be a full Committee hearing to receive the semi-annual report on Monetary Policy and State of the Economy from Janet Yellen, chair of the Federal Reserve. That hearing will take place Wednesday, February 25, starting at 10 a.m. Eastern time.

Deaf hiker who fell nearly 700-feet down snowy mountain credits husky with life-saving rescue

Posted on by

first_imgAlaska State Troopers (ANCHORAGE, AK) — A deaf hiker who fell down a snowy Alaskan mountain last week found an unlikely rescuer and friend.Amelia Milling, 21, was four miles into her hike through the Crow Pass Trail in Chugach State Park, nearly 30 miles outside of Anchorage, when her trekking poles broke and she fell nearly 300 feet down a snow-covered portion of the mountain. Milling hit a large boulder and slid another 300 to 400 feet, according to Alaska State Troopers.Milling said a white husky immediately came to her aid.“That’s when I first saw Nanook and first I thought he was a wolf,” Milling told ABC News. “Then I saw the little collar and realized he was there to help me.”Nanook is actually a trail guide dog that helps hikers find their way back to a trail, Milling later learned.Milling camped out overnight with the rescue dog by her side.“When I opened up the tent, he was ready to go. He was just right there and that helped me to have some motivation to keeping going,” she said.Milling tried to cross a river within 24 hours of her initial fall, but a strong current dragged her down further and Nookie quickly sprang into action to help pull her to safety, she later told authorities.“Nookie came and grabbed the shoulder strap of my backpack and actually pulled it out,” Milling recalled.When she got back on land she said she activated her SPOT Beacon, a GPS device to alert rescuers of her location.Alaska State Trooper Lt. Eric Olsen, one of the responding officers who was part of Milling’s rescue team from HELO-3 out of Anchorage, said he was amazed that Nookie “helped rescue her.”“When I realized I had a real-life hero dog I called up the owner and he said, ‘No way,’” Olsen recalled. Nookie’s tags asked to return the dog back to his address and also included a phone number.Olsen drove the 7-year-old dog back to his home in Girdwood, where his owner, Scott Swift, explained Nookie’s love for hiking and following people on the trails.“There was one other girl about 6 years old — he saved [her] when she fell in the river,” Swift said of an incident near the Crow Pass Trail nearly two years ago.Milling later reunited with her hero dog whom she credits for saving her life.

Colorado woman killed in suspected bear attack, wildlife officials say

Posted on by

first_imgColorado Parks and Wildlife(TRIMBLE, Colo.) — A Colorado woman out walking her dogs died of a suspected bear attack, officials said.The 39-year-old woman was found Friday night by her boyfriend, who went searching for her when he discovered the two dogs alone outside their home in Durango, in southwestern Colorado, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a statement Saturday.He found her body around 9:30 p.m. local time off U.S. Highway 550 near Trimble, north of Durango, and called 911, officials said. The woman and her boyfriend haven’t been publicly identified.Responding wildlife officers “observed signs of consumption on the body and an abundance of bear scat and hair at the scene,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a statement.A dog team from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services also searched the area and found a female black bear with two young bears nearby. The bears were euthanized “out of an abundance of caution,” the agency said.Wildlife officials believe the woman died of a bear attack, though the local coroner’s office will determine the official cause of death. An autopsy will be performed by the La Plata County coroner early next week, officials said.The Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Wildlife Health Lab in Fort Collins will also perform a necropsy on the three bears, officials said. DNA evidence from the bears and the scene will be sent for testing to the Wyoming Game and Fish Wildlife Forensic & Fish Health Laboratory.Wildlife officers are still investigating the scene to corroborate a wildlife attack.Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials urged the public to avoid the area as the investigation continues and asked people to report any encounter with an aggressive bear to the agency.“Bear attacks are extremely rare,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife Southwest Region manager Cory Chick said in a statement. “This is a tragic event and a sad reminder that bears are wild and potentially dangerous.”So far this spring, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said it has received several reports of bear sightings and activity in the Durango area, including a bear tearing down a bird feeder and one getting into garbage.There have been three confirmed fatal bear attacks in Colorado since 1971, according to the wildlife agency. The most recent occurred in 2009, when a 74-year-old woman was killed and partially eaten by a bear or bears at her home near Ouray.Most bears are active in Colorado from mid-March through early November.
