The previous week’s figures were revised up from 452,000 to 455,000. The claim figure is the lowest since the week ending 10 July.The four-week moving average, which aims to smooth volatility in the data, fell by 5,500 to 453,250 from the previous week’s revised average of 458,750.Yesterday’s weekly claim data is the last report before voters go to the polls for the midterm elections next Tuesday. The stubbornly high unemployment rate is seen as a key issue. As polling day approaches, Democrats have fought to defend their economic policies in hopes of maintaining their majority in Congress.Meanwhile, the number of continuing claims – those drawn by workers for more than one week in the week ended 16 October – declined by 122,000 to 4,356,000 from the preceding week’s revised level of 4,478,000. Continuing claims are reported with a one-week lag.The Federal Reserve is also believed to be considering a second round of quantitative easing. The Fed is expected to announce a new US Treasury bond purchase programme at the end of its two-day meeting on 3 November. whatsapp whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ KCS-content
28th April 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Tags: Online Gambling Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter iGaming drives revenue growth for Norsk Tipping in 2019 Norway’s lottery and gaming monopoly Norsk Tipping put marginal growth in revenue for 2019 down to the strong performance of its online gaming offering, though admitted that tighter player protection controls had cut the full year total by around NOK200m. Full year turnover grew 5.6% year-on-year to NOK40.27bn, aided by customer numbers growing to a record 2.0m, of which 28% were aged under 40, according to chief executive Åsne Havnelid.Online gaming turnover was up 29.8% to NOK18.03bn, above lottery, which contributed NOK10.56bn. Sports betting turnover also grew, rising 4.8% to NOK3.80bn.Gaming terminals, meanwhile, saw turnover decline 24.4% to NOK6.82bn, while instant win was down 6.3% at NOK1.05bn.After paying out NOK32.11bn in winnings – a 7.1% increase – revenue amounted to NOK8.16bn, up 0.1%, despite the impact of new social responsibility controls. After seeing the number of customers classed as at risk of developing problems grow to 10,000 in 2018, it brought in a measure that stopped online customers from gambling with winnings over NOK20,000 and now automatically displays an overview of a player’s gambling history upon login.Despite this, revenue from online gaming grew 17.5% to NOK981m, with sports betting revenue across online and retail channels up 4.5% to NOK947m. However, lottery continued to generate the majority of Norsk Tipping’s revenue in 2019, with its contribution rising marginally to NOK5.27bn.“From a social responsibility perspective, it’s important that the games with the lowest correlation to gambling problems is our market leader,” Havnelid said.Scratchcard revenue declined 7.7% to NOK458m while gaming terminal revenue fell 37.6% to NOK503m.Norsk Tipping took in an additional NOK11m in revenue from other sources.The operator paid NOK620m in commissions, down 12.2%, and NOK440m in personnel costs, up 6.3%. Of these personnel costs, NOK323m came in the form of salaries and fees, NOK51m in employer taxes, NOK60m in pensions and NOK6m in other costs.In addition, it incurred depreciation and write-down charges of NOK189m, a 2.9% increase, and other operating expenses of NOK1.32bn, down 4.6%.Of these other operating costs, plants and machinery were the largest expenses, at NOK435m, down 7.9%. Advertising costs declined 8.3% to NOK297m while costs relating to player identification and payment solutions fell 4.9% to NOK175m.Also listed among other costs, collaboration agreements came to NOK100m, consultancy fees came to NOK83m, while payments to the Lottery and Foundation Authority (Lotteri- og stiftelsestilsynet) and distribution and shipping costs both totalled NOK39m. Telecommunications costs were NOK27m, printed supply costs came to NOK36m and TV production expenses totalled NOK25m.These costs, totalling NOK2.56bn, resulted in an operating profit of NO5.60bn, up 2.4%. Norsk Tipping’s financial income rose 61.1% to NOK86m, with interest income the largest contribution at NOK57m, while financial expenses almost tripled to NOK14m.As a result, the operator’s net profit for the year came to NOK5.68bn, up 2.8% year-on-year.Havnelid added that the Norwegian government is still working on a new Gambling Act, but has already decided that Norsk Risktoto should not merge with Norsk Tipping to jointly run the country’s horse racing betting monopoly as previously proposed.“The Government is finalizing the draft new Gambling Act, which will replace both the previous Gambling Act, the Totalizator Act and the Lottery Act,” Havnelid said. “In this process, the Ministry of Culture and Agriculture considered moving horse racing from Norwegian Rikstoto to Norsk Tipping, but decided in April 2020 to continue the current system.”Last week, the operator revealed that it distributed over NOK5.5bn from its profits to good causes across the country during 2019. Norwegian lottery operator Norsk Tipping’s revenue grew slightly to NOK8.16bn in 2019, while profits grew 2.8% to NOK5.68bn thanks to growth in online sales.

Your example of willingness to engage in pastoral discernment with all sections of the Anglican communion is particularly significant in my Anglican Diocese of Sydney, Australia. As a mature age Anglican woman ministry student living in Sydney and placed at St James King Street, but undergoing ordination discernment for the priesthood with Bathurst Anglican Diocese because the Sydney Anglican Synod has banned women’s ordination to the priesthood, here, I am particularly grateful for this peacemaking intervention.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Submit a Press Release Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Elizabeth Sheppard says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest [Lambeth Palace] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has written to ecumenical partners about the General Synod’s decision to allow women to become bishops, emphasizing that churches “need each other.”An ENS article about the Church of England’s decision to enable women to serve as bishops is available here.The text of Welby’s letter, which is being posted to partner churches, follows.This comes to you with warm Christian greetings and the wish to communicate personally to you the decision of the General Synod of the Church of England to admit women to the episcopate.This is an occasion of deep rejoicing for many, especially for many of the women clergy in the Church of England. They feel that this decision affirms their place and ministry in the life of the Church. For others in the Church of England, the decision may be a source of disappointment and concern.As the Synod moved towards the decision many were struck by the spirit of the debate: frankness, passion and, I am glad to say, a good deal of Christian charity. It all indicated an intention and sincere assurance to hold all of us together in one Church. There appeared a determination that the genuinely held differences on the issue of the ordination of women to the episcopate should not become a dividing factor in the Church of England, and there was care and expressions of love for those troubled by the outcome.The Bishops have sought to build trust across the Church. The five principles outlined by them in their declaration form part of the package approved. Principles 3 and 4 are ecumenically relevant.I give below these principles:1. Now that legislation has been passed to enable women to become bishops the Church of England is fully and unequivocally committed to all orders of ministry being open equally to all, without reference to gender, and holds that those whom it has duly ordained and appointed to office are the true and lawful holders of the office which they occupy and thus deserve due respect and canonical obedience; 2. Anyone who ministers within the Church of England must be prepared to acknowledge that the Church of England has reached a clear decision on the matter; 3. Since it continues to share the historic episcopate with other Churches, including the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and those provinces of the Anglican Communion which continue to ordain only men as priests or bishops, the Church of England acknowledges that its own clear decision on ministry and gender is set within a broader process of discernment within the Anglican Communion and the whole Church of God; 4. Since those within the Church of England who, on grounds of theological conviction, are unable to receive the ministry of women bishops or priests continue to be within the spectrum of teaching and tradition of the Anglican Communion, the Church of England remains committed to enabling them to flourish within its life and structures; and5. Pastoral and sacramental provision for the minority within the Church of England will be made without specifying a limit of time and in a way that maintains the highest possible degree of communion and contributes to mutual flourishing across the whole Church of England. The Church of England continues in its quest to make our unity more visible with those with whom we are in communion, and to seek greater unity with those with whom we are not yet in communion. Some of our Sister Churches in communion will share the joy of those in the Church of England, who welcome the development of having women in the episcopate. But we are also aware that our other ecumenical partners may find this a further difficulty on the journey towards full communion. There is, however, much that unites us, and I pray that the bonds of friendship will continue to be strengthened and that our understanding of each other’s traditions will grow.Finally, it is clear to me that whilst our theological dialogue will face new challenges, there is nonetheless so much troubling our world today that our common witness to the Gospel is of more importance than ever. There is conflict in many regions of our world, acute poverty, unemployment and an influx of oppressed people driven away from their own countries and seeking refuge elsewhere. We need each other, as we, as churches empowered by the Holy Spirit, rise to the challenge and proclaim the good news of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and strive for closer fellowship and greater unity. I do recognise that there are issues that raise difficulties, but I do also take courage from the words communicated to one of my predecessors by a significant Orthodox brother which have become dear to me:In spite of such obstacles, we cannot allow ourselves to congeal the love between us which is also manifested in dialogue so “let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us” with the good hope that the Lord of powers and mercy “will not let us be tested beyond our strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that we may be able to endure it” (1 Cor. 10:13). It is therefore in this spirit that I greet you and ask for your prayers for our ministry in the Church of England.The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin WelbyArchbishop of Canterbury Featured Events July 19, 2014 at 12:07 pm This says something quite startling about the quality and validity of sacerdotal theology of ordination which has shaped the church’s thinking for generations which is deeply disturbing.For me it is a Chamberlain compromise which won us “peace at all costs” – even our theological integrity. Bottom line: Women are either fully authorized by ordination or they are not.If, in paragraph #4 and #5, we substituted “African” or “Asian” or “disabled person” for “women” there would be an outcry that would be heard round the world. But women? Meh!And . . . and . . . AND . . .. since misogyny and homophobia walk hand in hand, this does not bode well for LGBT people in the CofE.So, while I DO, in fact, rejoice that those women who truly feel called to the episcopacy will now be able to respond to their vocation, it is tempered by my disappointment over this serious compromise with ideological tyrants which will bring a peace that will prove to be quite costly – not just to women and LGBT people, but – to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.That’s just my tuppence on the matter.Your mileage may vary.

Instead, his message then was yet another triumph of cowardice, fear and disrespect. The Rev. Dr. E.

Remember, God is indeed doing a new thing in bringing to fullness the whole kingdom of God. Could it be that one’s individual, deeply held, sincere conviction is also subject to God’s saving grace?

Charity benefits from €10 million legacy Advertisement The Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) has received a legacy of over €10 million for its work in Galway.The bequest from Maureen O’Connell, who died in 1998, was originally received in 2007 and was worth €7.73 million. This has grown to €10.5 million through accumulated bank interest and other income. The costs for administering the funds came to eight per cent of the total, according to the Irish Times.O’Connell was the owner of O’Connell’s public house in Eyre Square, Galway city. Her will stated that the gift to the SVP was for the general objectives and purposes of the society in Galway.The income represents a substantial boost to the charity. In 2018 SVP had an income of over €80 million, with general donations and legacies a significant part of voluntary income.Because of its scale, the Fund had its own administration and accounts management, separate from the main SVP structure in the region. Consequently the charity was careful to ensure it maximised the impact of the gift. Following consultations it developed a plan to cover community, family and individual beneficiaries.Details of how the fund has been used, and the projects which benefited, were published on Thursday. SVP was not the only beneficiary. A total of 95 projects have benefited, providing direct assistance to more than 3,000 households and over 8,500 people.
