HKJC betting shops to remain closed indefinitely

Posted on by

first_img18th August 2020 | By Conor Mulheir Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) is to keep all its off-course betting branches closed indefinitely, despite originally planning to allow the venues to reopen from early August.The news comes in response to a sharp increase in cases of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the jurisdiction, which shares a land border with China where the spread of the virus began in late 2019.Total cases of the virus in Hong Kong have increased some 267% in around six weeks, from 1,234 on 1 July, to 4,525 on 17 August.HKJC’s betting branches were originally closed in February, around the beginning of the pandemic, however they reopened briefly on 22 June.Between this date and 19 July, customers were able to place bets, manage accounts and make deposits and withdrawals in-branch, in line with safety measures including social distancing and the use of masks and hand sanitizer stations.However, a resurgence in cases of Covid-19 forced the shops to close once again in July, with plans to reopen them early in August, before the latest extension.Despite difficulties caused by the pandemic, HKJC reported 2019-20 as its third most successful season in history, as it saw revenues bolstered by international and online growth.It reported that total racing turnover in the season that ran from 1 September 2019 to 15 July 2020 was HK$121.6bn (US$15.7bn/€13.8bn/£12.2bn), a 2.6% decline from the previous season.While turnover dipped by almost 26% in early February, wagering rallied through the latter part of the season and climaxed with a record HK$1.6bn being taken in the season finale at the Happy Valley course on 15 July. There was a slight increase in the number of local races year-on-year with 828 compared to 812 in 2018-19.The first meeting in the HKJC 2020-21 season is currently expected to take place on Sunday, 6 September, with the season expected to run until 14 July 2021.

Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 7th January, 2021 | More on: BARC LLOY Many UK stocks have suffered significant declines over the past 12 months. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the financial sector. Equities such as Barclays (LSE: BARC) and Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) shares have severely underperformed the rest of the market.However, I think this could be an excellent opportunity for long-term investors. Indeed, while these businesses might have to grapple with some challenges in the short term, in the long run, I believe their size and competitive advantages will help drive growth.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…Long-term investors Here at the Motley Fool, we are long-term investors. That means we concentrate on a company’s underlying fundamentals, rather than letting short-term market movements drive our decisions. We also try to take advantage of the market’s short-term outlook. I think this is something both Barclays and Lloyds shares are suffering from right now. In my opinion, investors are spending too much time concentrating on the risks these businesses face, rather than their opportunities.This prevailing attitude has sent shares in both banking groups down to levels not seen since the financial crisis. Even though the stocks have recovered in the past few weeks, they’re still trading at deeply-discounted valuations. Lloyds shares are cheapRight now, Barclays shares are trading at a price-to-book (P/B) ratio of around 0.3. Lloyds shares are trading at a P/B of approximately 0.40. This might have been acceptable at the beginning of the pandemic as both businesses were reporting losses. Generally, if a company is losing money, that implies it’s shrinking.Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to pay the book value or more for the equity. As such, at the beginning of the pandemic, a P/B ratio of less than one for both organisations would have been acceptable. However, over the past 12 months, both Barclays and Lloyds have shown that the pandemic’s impact on their operations has been relatively limited. Both lenders reported significant losses in the first half of 2020.But by the third quarter, the lenders had moved back into the black. Lloyds reported a pre-tax profit of £1bn in the third quarter. Barclays reported a net profit of £611m. Neither company has registered fourth-quarter results yet, but I believe it’s highly likely both groups will report a profit for the period. On that basis, I think the shares look cheap from a valuation perspective. If Barclays and Lloyds shares returned to a P/B of 1, that would produce a return of more than 100% on the current share price. What’s more, in the past few weeks, regulators changed their stance on bank dividends. They’re now allowing lenders to resume dividend payouts at an appropriate level. This suggests Barclays and Lloyds shares will become income investments once again in 2021.Both have plenty of capital to cover any additional losses as well as pay shareholders a steady dividend. That’s another reason why I think the companies could be profitable acquisitions at current levels.last_img read more

Updated: New hotel to be built on West Magnolia Avenue

Posted on by

first_imgHaley Harrison ReddIt Linkedin Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Facebook Haley Harrisonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haley-harrison/ + posts Linkedin Haley Harrisonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haley-harrison/ Haley is a senior journalism major and political science minor from Parker, Texas. When she’s not in the newsroom, she enjoys playing sand volleyball with her friends and watching all the cute dog videos on Facebook. Haley Harrisonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haley-harrison/ Good Neighbors Animal Rescue helps hundreds of feral cats and dogs ReddItcenter_img Students concerned about off-campus thefts printThe northeast corner of West Magnolia Avenue and Henderson Street won’t be desolate for much longer.Construction is expected to begin in the next year for a proposed six-story, 138-room boutique hotel. The project is expected to take 30 to 36 months to complete, said Michael Bennett, CEO of Bennett Benner Partners and architect of the project.“A hotel would be a good complimentary use on Magnolia,” said Bennett. “It would be the next logical use to introduce into the area to keep it growing and evolving.”There was neighborhood opposition to the hotel being built, including a petition submitted by members of the Fairmount Neighborhood Association. The rezoning was approved by Fort Worth City council in spite of opposition.Bennett and the original landowner were introduced to Bond Partners of San Diego, the hotel developers, who had also been interested in building in the Magnolia area. They have established hotels such as the Foundre Phoenix, the North Block Hotel in Napa Valley and The Modern Honolulu.Plans call for a multi-use building that includes a restaurant facing West Magnolia Avenue, a rooftop bar and events space, a small number of apartments and condominiums and a large parking garage on the other side of Henderson Street. The new parking garage will also have 170 spaces available to reduce parking in the adjacent neighborhoods.The last piece of property for the project was purchased early last year, Bennett said. He added that his team is now in the process of branding the hotel with an independent company.“The branding will grow out of the history and feel of the Magnolia neighborhood,” Bennett said. “It will establish guiding principles for both the interior and exterior design.”Bennett’s firm has some conceptual drawings on its website. The images reflect the design elements meant to help the hotel match the area.His team collaborated with their immediate neighbors and business owners during the zoning process. Bennett said that most people are excited about the hotel, but there was quite a bit of misinformation and misunderstanding regarding the character of the project.“We will continue to work with the adjacent neighbors as the design progresses,” Bennett added.Kat Swift, assistant general manager of Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken, said that she is “all for it.” The most reoccurring complaint on her restaurant’s Yelp reviews is that they don’t have a parking lot. Swift said an increase of visitors and a parking lot would help her business.“Magnolia is one of the coolest areas of Fort Worth that most people don’t get to see,” said Swift. “The growth will help show people this side of town.”Kent & Co. Wines and Heim Barbecue representatives are both taking a neutral stance on the project at this time.Steve Huffman, a nearby resident, said he he’s excited about the new addition to Magnolia.“The hotel will bring more business to the area,” said Huffman. “It’s nothing but good for our street and our neighborhood.”The Fairmount Neighborhood Association could not be reached for comment, but you can listen to their concerns from the city council meeting here, beginning around 1 hour and 32 minutes.

Little to celebrate on Day of the Journalist in Venezuela

Posted on by

first_img Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela A journalist receives assistance while demonstrators protesting against President Nicolas Maduro’s government -for the fifth time in the last week- clash with riot police in Caracas on April 10, 2017. FEDERICO PARRA / AFP The figures are dizzying. According to The National Press Workers Union (SNTP), 376 journalists were attacked between March 31st and June 24th. Police forces were responsible for 170 of of these attacks. Still according to the SNTP, 33 journalists were illegally detained during this same period.Journalists have obviously not been the only victims of the violence. More than 75 Venezuelans have been killed and 2,000 injured in demonstrations since the start of the year. The country was especially shocked by the death of David Vallenilla, a young activist shot by police on 22 June. Around 3,000 protesters have also been arrested, of whom more than 1,000 are still held*.AP photographer Ariana Cubillos is knocked down by the water jet of a riot control vehicle as opposition activists clash with riot police during a health care personnel march in Caracas on May 22, 2017. LUIS ROBAYO / AFP“On this special day, we pay tribute to the courage of Venezuela’s journalists, who continue to report the news in the face of adversity and deplorable security conditions,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau.“Freedom of expression and the freedom of the press are in great danger in Venezuela. President Nicolás Maduro’s government must stop systematically obstructing and censoring the media and must guarantee the safety of both protesters and the journalists covering the protests.”The National Telecommunications Commission (CONATEL), whose director was replaced on 21 June, meanwhile continues to close media outlets. Since the start of the year, it has shut down more than 41 radio and TV stations in states governed by Maduro’s party, according to the IPYS.Facilitated by the government’s extension of the “state of exception” in May, the media closures are being carried out without any transparency and without any grounds being given.The latest TV channel to be shut down was ULA TV, the channel operated by the University of the Andes. Its signal was disconnected on 15 June after an inspection by CONATEL, which also confiscated journalistic material from its newsroom.Venezuela is ranked 137th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.*Sources: Department of Public Prosecutions, SNTP, Espacio Público and Foro Penal New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets June 15, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Organisation Follow the news on Venezuela VenezuelaAmericas Condemning abusesMedia independence PredatorsViolence News June 27, 2017 Little to celebrate on Day of the Journalist in Venezuela Help by sharing this information center_img to go further News News August 25, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en VenezuelaAmericas Condemning abusesMedia independence PredatorsViolence Reporters Without Borders (RSF) regrets that political tensions continue to fuel growing violence against the media in Venezuela, which celebrates Day of the Journalist today with little to celebrate after a dramatic decline in the environment for reporters since the start of the year.
