It paid £14.14 a share for its LSE stake, while these shares ended Friday at £8.23.Last Thursday, Nasdaq OMX bought 22.8m of its shares from Borse Dubai for $497m, pricing the deal at $21.82 per share.Borse Dubai also agreed to sell a further 8m Nasdaq shares to Investor AB, the holding company for Sweden’s Wallenberg family for an undisclosed fee. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’DefinitionAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Speaking at tonight’s Business Woman of the Year awards, Lord Myners will say that the failure by the private sector to recognise and mobilise female talent is the largest missed opportunity of recent history, with women’s “different, fruitful and, at times, distinctly superior style to decision making and leadership” offering the best opportunity for future growth and economic prosperity.But he will stop short of recommending compulsory measures to encourage gender diversity, insisting that board appointments should be based on merit, with companies responsible for removing internal barriers to appointing female leaders. Myners’ views contradict those expressed in last month’s government-commissioned report from Lord Davies, which said quotas to encourage female board members would have to be introduced if voluntary measures fail. According to a 2010 study by Cranfield University, women make up only 12.5 per cent of FTSE100 board members, just a 0.3 per cent rise from the previous year. Burberry is currently the FTSE100 company with the greatest number of women on its board, but still falls short of Myners’ predictions with just three out of eight female directors. Diageo is the only company with four women on its board, including recently apponted finance chief Deirdre Mahlan. Almost a fifth of the current FTSE100 – 18 companies – have no female directors at all.Lord Davies’ report called for the UK’s largest public companies to make sure female directors make up at least 25 per cent of their board members by 2015.

Tags: Mobile Online Gambling JenningsBet switches focus to digital ahead of FOBT changes 19th February 2019 | By contenteditor UK independent bookmaker JenningsBet is to launch a new FSB-powered betting and gaming platform as part of its preparations maximum FOBT stakes being cut to £2 from April this year. Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation UK independent bookmaker JenningsBet is to launch a new FSB-powered betting and gaming platform as part of its preparations maximum fixed odds betting terminal (FOBT) stakes being cut to £2 from April this year.The sportsbook will be powered by FSB’s pricing models, with JenningsBet customers able to place pre-match and in-play bets across a range of sports online or via mobile. Players will also have access to a live casino and a range of casino games on the FSB-supplied platform, while JenningsBet will benefit from CRM tools for player segmentation and bonusing. Greg Knight, managing director of JenningsBet, said the launch of the new, digital service comes after a tough 2018 for the bookmaker in the retail market. However, Knight also said that while there is a need for retail to evolve, the betting shop will always have a place in the industry and services such as the new online offering will complement traditional, in-person betting. “While we were keen to make this digital upgrade, finding the right partner who could join up our customers’ diverse needs across all channels was crucial,” he said. “With this state-of-the-art sportsbook, we aim to capitalise on the ramping demand for a mobile-first solution.” Richard Thorp, business development director at FSB, added: “Our platform is now setting the tone for online sports betting, driving the sector forward via innovative features for online, mobile and retail.” The move to digital comes ahead of regulatory changes on FOBTs, which come into effect from April. Maximum stakes will be cut from £100 to £2 while Remote Gaming Duty will rise from 15% to 21%. The changes are to be implemented despite warnings from the Association of British Bookmakers that the maximum stake reduction will result in up to 4,500 shop closures and 21,000 job losses. Betting Shop Services, the company behind JenningsBet and the Betterbet brand, cited the performance of its retail business as the main driver of year-on-year growth in profit and turnover for its financial year ended April 29th, 2018. However, upon revealing these results in November, Betting Shop Services said that it was watching developments relating to FOBTs and would make changes to its operations as necessary. The company said: “The directors are monitoring the situation closely and whilst doing so, are assessing any potential impact that will result, to enable them to take all appropriate measures to protect the long-term future of the business. “The assessment includes the consideration of the levels of both FOBT and over-the-counter income, together with overall profitability of individual shops.”Image: Dietmar Rabich AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Sports betting Email Address

Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images Would I buy Bitcoin? No. Would I buy shares in Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB)? Maybe. That might sound strange, so I’ll explain. To me, it’s similar to gold. I won’t buy gold, because it’s a straight gamble on where the gold price might go next.But a gold miner is different. Based on a range of possible gold prices, we can estimate some sort of base level for the long-term profits a miner might make. Similarly, it should be possible to come to some sort of rational valuation for the ARB share price, shouldn’t it?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…It’s not easy right now. Rather than any fundamental valuation based on profits, the Argo Blockchain share price is really just following where cryptocurrencies are going. Bitcoin has soared in 2021, but it’s fallen back some way since its high in April. And that’s what ARB shares have done too.It seems it’s all down to Elon Musk. Tesla accepts Bitcoin in payment for cars? Buy Bitcoin. Oh, Tesla won’t take it any more? Sell Bitcoin. He says Tesla might sell its Bitcoin holdings, then he says it hasn’t… you get the picture.It seems crazy to me to value something based on whatever one person happens to tweet in any one day, even someone as successful and charismatic as Musk. But that’s the way the cryptocurrency world seems to work.ARB share price down againArgo Blockchain ended Tuesday down 5.8%, at 130p. That’s still a climb of more than 2,500% over the past 12 months. But the price hit a peak of 360p at on 26 March, and has since plunged 65%. That suggests it’s hugely risky buying into a crypto mining stock, way more than a gold mining stock.To get back to my gold miner comparison, I’d value a mining stock based largely on the cost of extraction per ounce. I’d examine historical gold prices, and work out what margins the miner might make at various levels. And if I think there’s still decent profit even if gold falls significantly, I’ll seriously consider buying the shares.I’d want to see the share price trading at a discount to what I think the underlying profits might be like. But that’s not happening with the ARB share price.Speculative valuationAt the end of April, Argo held a total of 936 Bitcoin, or Bitcoin equivalent (BTC). And it was mining at a rate of around 1,970 BTC per year. The company’s current market-cap stands at a fraction under £500m, or about the equivalent of 16,600 Bitcoin.Mining at current rates would take around eight years to generate enough BTC to match the firm’s valuation. Well, presumably longer, as it costs money to run all the computers.I know Argo plans to raise its production rate, but that will cost more money. And, right now, the ARB share price still appears to value the company based solely on the speculative future value of Bitcoin. It’s not based on any proven sustainable profits the company might make.Should that happen, that’s when I’ll consider buying.

The property was on a low hill, and the client wanted the brand new residence in the familiar environment. The east side was a steep slope with the open front, and his top priority was the “dwelling space with the living room with the extensive view where he can spend the extraordinary life.” The client was well aware of my design style to details, and was convinced that “the dwelling space of my wish and your style resonate each other.”Save this picture!© Junji Kojima / 45g PhotographyWhen I visited the property, I climbed on the surrounding walls and checked how I could secure the view, the theme of this residence, from various aspects. It faced Mt. Ontake in the distance, and I determined to have the floors as high as possible in order to secure the undisturbed view.Save this picture!© Junji Kojima / 45g PhotographyTherefore, I decided to have the 1st floor at 2-meter higher than the road, on which rooms family members do not frequent, e.g. a tatami room, were assigned. The main living space was assigned to the 2nd floor, which is 5-meter higher than the road in front, to create the living environment with no neighborhood houses in the view. Save this picture!Elevations + SectionThe main entranceway is deliberately blocked from the view so that the spectacular panorama of over 180 degree range can welcome visitors upon opening the entrance door on the 2nd floor. Save this picture!© Junji Kojima / 45g PhotographyThe dwelling space supported by 3-meter cantilevers from three wall pillars floats in the air, and offers the unique sight framed by the 2-meter deep canopy and terrace. Inside is structured rather simply. Open the sliding partitions of the master bedroom and the kid’s room on both sides of the living room, and the huge space of 20-meter width appears. Its size overwhelms the norm of average residential houses, and the large opening with the transparent corners shows Mt. Ontake and the townscape at the foot from afar in the picture frame. The scenery is stunningly picturesque and should add unprecedented touch to the life of my client.Save this picture!© Junji Kojima / 45g PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessShimen Bridge / DnASelected ProjectsWard with V dots / B+P ArchitectsSelected Projects Share KAP, Hideyuki Hagiuda Abo Residence / Kidosaki Architects Studio Structural Engineer: General Contractor: Photographs CopyAbout this officeKidosaki Architects StudioOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNagoyaJapanPublished on April 25, 2018Cite: “Abo Residence / Kidosaki Architects Studio” 24 Apr 2018.

With the current farm bill set to expire Sept. 30, farmers already dealing with the effects of the worst drought in 50 years, want to know how soon a new bill could be passed and what it will mean for their bottom lines, Ohio State University Extension economist Matt Roberts says. But with the Republican-controlled House and Democrat-led Senate disagreeing on key farm bill provisions, including the amount of cuts to the food stamp program and the shape of the farm program, it is unclear when a new bill will be passed and what that new bill will mean for farmers, he said. That has left farmers reeling with the uncertainty of what the potential farm bill could mean for their farm futures. “The most defining moment of the past two or three years has been the drought of 2012, so how will that affect where the farm bill debate will go?” Roberts asked.“The farm bill is so important because it sets the rules of the game of how farmers operate. So any changes to that policy affect farmers in terms of their decisions on whether to expand, contract or grow new crops. The drought this year has caused a lot of losses across the farm sector, so understanding what the safety net is going forward is crucial to help farmers make production decisions for 2013 and beyond.” SHARE By Gary Truitt – Sep 11, 2012 Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Experts to Discuss Farm Bill and 2012 drought AT FSR Roberts will talk about the implications during “Drought and the Farm Bill: What 2012 Means for Farm Policy,” Sept. 18, 10-11 a.m. at the Tobin Building during the Farm Science Review near London, Ohio. The panel discussion will feature Roberts; Ian Sheldon, the Andersons Professor of International Trade in Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; Carl Zulauf, an agricultural economics professor and a farm policy expert in the college; and Katharine Ferguson, the Rural Policy Director for U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown. “The goal of the talk is to help farmers better understand what the forces are that are shaping the farm bill, what the farm bill may look like, and when we may actually see it pass,” Roberts said. “The fact is that we are still trying to pull our way out of the recession, with a lot of people receiving (food stamps), combined with the worst drought in 50 years and significant pressure from Washington to get spending under control and lower the deficit. “So how will these forces get reconciled with the farm bill in the legislative process?” Facebook Twitter Farm Science Review is sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences; OSU Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center.
