Movetis investors have until 26 September to accept the offer, which values the firm at €428m (£358m) including its €100m cash pile. Movetis management have unanimously recommended the offer to shareholders, which represents a premium of 74 per cent on stock prices before the bid was first announced on 3 August. Institutional investors Sofinnova Partners, Sofinnova Ventures, and Life Sciences Partners, which together make up 38.9 per cent of shares, have already agreed to sell. Shire said yesterday it believes the acquisition will make money from 2012. The tender offer is being funded by existing cash resources and executed through the company’s Luxembourg-based subsidiary. The acquisition would give Shire the rights to Resolor, which treats chronic constipation in women in 27 countries of the European Union and elsewhere. Shire estimates potential annual peak sales of Resolor of more than €300m.The purchase will boost the acquisitive drugmaker’s gastro-intestinal business, which is currently the smallest of its three areas of operation. The takeover is one of several deals being thrashed out in the pharmaceutical sector. French drugs giant Sanofi-Aventis said yesterday it would be prepared to moderately raise its $69 per share (£44.7) offer for Genzyme, after the US firm rejected an all-cash $18.5bn offer last week. Shares in Shire closed 0.55 per cent up at £14.59 yesterday, while Movetis remained flat at €18.84. whatsappcenter_img Show Comments ▼ Monday 6 September 2010 8:29 pm Share More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

UK Lib Dems call for ban on credit cards in gambling

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Legal & compliance UK Lib Dems call for ban on credit cards in gambling Tags: Online Gambling Payments Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The UK Liberal Democrat Party have announced they will ban the use of credit cards for gambling if the party wins a majority in the country’s upcoming election on 12 December.Layla Moran, Liberal Democrat shadow spokesperson for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, said problem gambling had become an epidemic in the UK.“Problem gambling often has a pernicious and incredibly sad impact on the lives of thousands of people up and down our country,” Moran said. “It is heart-breaking to see many vulnerable people fall further into debt as gambling becomes ever-more consuming.”Moran added that the current British government, led by the Conservative Party, had been slow to act in response to the effects of problem gambling. She pointed out that the government had initially dragged its heels over the implementation date of the Fixed-Odds Betting Terminal (FOBT ) stake limit, which came into effect earlier this year.“But, as ever with this mean-spirited government, the Conservatives have neglected the problem,” Moran said. “They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to support the Lib Dem-led initiative to reduce the maximum stake for FOBTs and have no interest in protecting the vulnerable any further.“Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats will take bold and decisive action to tackle problem gambling.”In addition, the party said it will increase restrictions on gambling advertising, though it did not elaborate upon the details of this, and introduce a gambling ombudsman.The Liberal Democrats also called for a compulsory levy on gambling companies to fund research, education and treatment of problem gambling.Currently, many UK gambling operators pay voluntary contributions for this purpose to gambling charity GambleAware. However, in 2018-19, the charity fell short of its industry donation target of £10m, collecting £9.6m.In response, the UK’s “Big Five” operators – William Hill, GVC Holdings, Flutter Entertainment, Sky Betting & Gaming and bet365 – announced plans to increase their contribution from 0.1% to 1% of gross gaming yield in no more than five years.Earlier this month (4 November), the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling-Related Harm called for a series of restrictions on online gambling in the UK, including a ban on the use of credit cards and the introduction of a gambling ombudsman. The Liberal Democrat release, however, said it would simply ban the use of credit cards for gambling, rather than highlighting online gambling.The APPG recommendations also included a £2 stake limit for online slot games, which drew significant backlash from the industry, including from GVC chief executive Kenny Alexander, who called the suggestion “ridiculous.”Since the House of Commons voted to hold a general election in December, the Liberal Democrats have received the support of between 11% and 17% of voters. At the 2017 general election, the Liberal Democrats won 12 seats out of the House of Commons’ total of 650  after receiving 7.4% of the national vote.In October, the Liberal Democrats called for an overhaul of the gaming sector’s approach to tackling responsible gambling, including an end to the slogan “When The Fun Stops, Stop.” The party said it believed the slogan was not effective and may be making the situation around prolbem gambling worse. 19th November 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Address Regions: UK & Ireland Legal & compliance The UK Liberal Democrat Party have announced they will ban the use of credit cards for gambling if the party wins a majority in the country’s upcoming election on 12 December.last_img read more

Old Stone House is designed for a young couple’s weekend retreat and it sits on a magnificent Hudson Valley 6.6 acre mountaintop site. As a phase one of the master plans, existing two and a half story, 2,000 sqft house was stripped down to its three masonry walls and foundation, then reduced to a 1,000 sqft single story structure with 300 sqft addition and basement. The client was fond of the existing stone wall commonly built in the region and requested to incorporate it into the new design. New roof and wall wrapping the existing stone structure to create a simple barn form filled with natural light and bringing the outside in became the concept of this house. The existing rough stone texture is juxtaposed with black standing seam metal roof and stained cedar siding to form a monolithic appearance.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaPronounced anodized aluminium plate composes the window and door opening surrounds and further emphasizes the new and old. The main area has a loft-like open plan containing living, dining, and kitchen. It features a 16’ high cathedral ceiling with a 16’ x 5’ north facing skylight which disperses a soft glow throughout the day while the south facing large sliding doors provide a mountain view and access to the teak deck spanning the entire south facade. The double height feature wall has a concealed pocket with a retractable projector screen and is surrounded by a casual seating group with a freestanding wood burning stove. Vintage heavy iron legs are used for dining table and it adds an industrial appearance together with a custom pendant light over it.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaSave this picture!SectionsNew ribbon window is inserted in the existing masonry opening capturing the sunset view into the kitchen area.

Ceiling framing is exposed and painted white in the bedrooms. This modern rustic design with carefully located windows collects soft morning light. Herringbone patterned Carrara white marble tile walls, custom oak vanity, and hand-blown pendant lamp are composed for a calm and soothing effect in the space.Save this picture!© Mikiko KikuyamaProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Best Architecture of 2017Architecture NewsThese Chimney Sections Show Santa’s Magical Shape-Shifting AbilitiesMisc Share Photographs Photographs:  Mikiko Kikuyama Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: A.I.A industries, All Modern, Marvin, Niche Modern, PID Floors, Sheffied Metals “COPY” Lead Architects: Peter Weed Architect CopyHouses, Renovation•United States “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885966/old-stone-house-takatina-llc Clipboard 2017 CopyAbout this officeTAKATINA LLCOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationUnited StatesPublished on December 25, 2017Cite: “Old Stone House / TAKATINA LLC” 25 Dec 2017.

Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesMedia independence Covid19ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Official information about the epidemic is proving very partial in Turkey and only the public health ministry is providing statistics about the spread of the virus. Several local journalists have been arrested and charged after publishing information about cases of infection in their region.In the northern province of Bartin, Mustafa Ahmet Oktay, the owner of the newspaper Pusula (Compass), and his editor, Eren Sarıkaya, were arrested on 18 March after reporting that a doctor had tested positive to the coronavirus. The judicial authorities accused them of “sowing panic and fear” under article 213 of the penal code and of not waiting for official information, a requirement imposed by the local authorities, before publishing anything about the epidemic. The two journalists are facing the possibility of between two and four years in prison.Night-time arrestsIn the southern province of Antalya, the editor of the news website Haberimizvar.net (News for You), Idris Özyol, and one of his reporters, Ebru Küçükaydin, were arrested in the middle of the night of 13 March and were taken before the local prosecutor’s office because of an article about a coronavirus case in Demre, one of the province’s towns. The article was subsequently deleted from the site.Ismet Çiğit, the news director of the news website Kocaeli Ses (Kocaeli Voices), was arrested at his home in Kocaeli, a city near Istanbul, on the night of 21 March after publishing an article headlined, “Two coronavirus-linked deaths in Derince hospital.” His editor, Güngör Arslan, also spent the night in the police station. Mesut Akbulut, the editor of the Kocaeli newspaper, was briefly detained two days before that for mentioning another coronavirus case in the city.In the western city of Izmir, Tugay Can, a reporter for the Iz Gazete website, was summoned by the local security directorate’s cyber-crime section on 26 March for reporting two new cases of Covid-19 among the city’s medical personnel.Two journalists in the eastern province of Van, Oktay Candemir and Rusen Takva, were summoned for questioning by the police simply for sharing Covid-19 information on social media.“The local media are among the leading collateral victims of the coronavirus in Turkey,” RSF Turkey representative Erol Onderoglu said. “The authorities were already harassing outspoken media outlets. Now local journalists, the leading witnesses of the public health crisis in the field, are also being undermined, at a time when the public’s right to information is crucial.”Turkey is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Hand sanitizer stations are recommended. The guidelines also call for cleaning microphones and other shared items.The state is calling for limiting attendance to 100 people or 25 percent of the building’s capacity, whichever is lower. That limit stays in effect for 21 days after the house of worship reopens, then conditions will be reviewed by health officials.Face coverings are strongly recommended. The plan, outlined a dozen pages released by the state, also discourages the passing of offering plates and other items between people.“Consider modifying practices that are specific to particular faith traditions that might encourage the spread of COVID-19,” the statement posted on the state’s Covid-19 response page said. “Examples are discontinuing kissing of ritual objects, allowing rites to be performed by fewer people, avoiding the use of a common cup, offering communion in the hand instead of on the tongue, providing pre-packed communion items on chairs prior to service, etc.”State health officials also have recommended having additional services or implementing a reservation system to prevent overcrowding.The 13-page document also suggests temporarily eliminating group performances and practices for organizations like a choir.

Limerick horse trainer Robbie was left out in cold

first_imgWATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads 1 August 2017; Trainer Robbie McNamara with the trophy after sending out Cascavelle and Billy Lee to win the Caulfield Industrial Irish EBF Maiden during the Galway Races Summer Festival 2017 at Ballybrit, in Galway. Photo by Cody Glenn/SportsfileA FORMER Limerick jockey who is now successful horse trainer has credited the power of social media with forcing Electric Ireland to turn his power back when he was stranded without heat on the coldest weekend of the year.Croom jockey, Robbie McNamara was left without power last week when the electricity was cut off because a previous tenant of the house had not paid the bill.Despite his landlord paying the outstanding amount, Mr Mc Namara – who is in a wheelchair and paralysed from the waist down following a fall in Wexford two years ago – was told by Electric Ireland on Friday last that he would have no power until Monday when someone would be sent to reconnect him.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I pay all my bills. The landlord sorted what was owed but the person I was dealing with was just stubborn. I said I was going to take it further, ” Mr McNamara told the Limerick Post.The trainer posted a picture of the thermostat in his living room reading just 1 degree, explaining he had been cut off and tagged the power company in it.“I was driving home at nearly midnight on Friday night and I got a call from a very helpful lady who said she would have someone come the next day to reconnect me”.Mr McNamara maintains that if he had not posted about the situation, he would have been left with no power and no means to even make a cup of tea in freezing conditions.“If I hadn’t posted, there is n way they would have gone to the trouble of reconnecting me over the weekend. It would have been freezing but I could have shifted to look after myself – what really makes me angry is, what if that was an older person or someone who is not on social media? They would have been ignored”.Mr McNamara said that as a businessman, “if anyone that I employ messes up then it’s my responsibility. Electric Ireland are responsible for the completely unhelpful attitude I was first met with”.A spokesperson for Electric Ireland said: “We regret the circumstances that occurred in this particular case. We cannot comment further on the individual aspects of the case as it is our policy to not comment on individual customers.“Electric Ireland wants all customers to have continued access to energy supply and we have committed to never disconnecting an engaging customer. We would also like to remind all customers who consider that they have a medical vulnerability that there is a facility to register this with Electric Ireland”.  WhatsApp TAGScut offElectric Irelandelectricityhorse trainerlimerickRobbie Mc Namara jockey Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Facebook Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashcenter_img Previous articleNew strategy to develop Limerick as a learning cityNext articleBeyond the neon runes Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.

Lion George Wilson is our school liaison and coordinates with the school’s principal to select the students the Brundidge Lions Club sends to the Leadership Conference at Troy University.”The club is a contributor to the Lions Club Sight Program and purchases glasses for those who cannot afford them.“We want to make sure that people that need glasses can get them, especially children,” Shipman said.

The club invited family members of the charter members to join the membership in the celebration of the club’s 67th anniversary.The Brundidge Lions Club was chartered in April 1951, with 40 members. The clubPurpose included fostering a spirit of understanding among people and promoting the principles of good government and good citizenship. The charter members pledged to take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the their community. The Brundidge Lions Club celebrated it 67th Anniversary Thursday with special recognition given to its 40 charter members. Lion John Shipman presented service awards to members who have distinguished themselves by doing good works. Pictured from left, Lion George Wilson, Shipman, Lioness Ursula Bryant, Lion Rayvon Graham and Alva Lambert, program guest. Not pictured, Lion Kai Chambers.center_img The charter members of the Brundidge Lions Club were Gene Ausbon, Clark Belcher, John E. Bell, Max Blackmon, Emmit Boutwell, James G.

Watters, Mack Wilson and Norman Wilson, Jr. W.K. (Kyle) Roberson was the club’s first president.“Once a Lion, always a Lion,” said Lion John Shipman, emcee for the event. “At age 94, Sherroll Tatom is our oldest Lion. He is not active but we salute him and his longtime service to the Brundidge Lions Club and the Brundidge community.”Shipman said the Brundidge club is the only Lions Club in Pike County at this time, but that doesn’t mean the Lions clubs in Goshen and Troy will not reorganize. The program guest for the Brundidge Lions Club’s 67th anniversary celebration was Lion Alva Lambert from the Montgomery Lions Club. Lambert wears many hats — attorney, executive director of the State Health Planning and Development Agency and host of “Good Morning, Montgomery.” But it was Lambert’s humor hat that he was wearing at the Lions’ celebration.Lambert’s has incredible speech imitation abilities and had the Lions and their guests laughing as he mimicked former political personalities, President Bill Clinton, Alabama Senator Howell Heflin and Alabama Governor George C.
