Impairment expenses push CDI to loss in Q1

first_img Email Address Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has posted a net loss of $23.4m (£18.7m/€21.5m) for the first quarter, primarily due to write-downs of business assets.Net revenue in the three months to March 31, 2020, amounted to $252.9m, down 4.7% year-on-year from $265.4m in the corresponding period in 2019.CDI saw the biggest drop within its gaming business, with revenue down 12.4% to $149.1m, as the operator was hit by the closure of its gaming properties as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.However, in contrast, online wagering revenue was up 6.8% to $67.7m, mainly due to a $3.7m increase in revenue from its TwinSpires business. The TwinSpires handle climbed 8.3% year-on-year and active players jumped 11.6%, despite the impact of coronavirus in the latter part of the quarter.Online sports betting and igaming net revenues also climbed $600,000, with CDI putting this down to a full quarter of igaming results in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. That said, sports betting revenue was impacted by the suspension of all major US and international sporting events due to Covid-19.Elsewhere, CDI’s Churchill Downs business saw revenue climb 11.2% to $23.8m, boosted by a $2.9m increase from Derby City Gaming’s continued growth prior to the temporary closure of the facility. However, the temporary suspension of simulcasting operations at Churchill Downs knocked $500,000 off the total.Read the full story on iGB North America.

I think this FTSE 100 dividend stock’s a brilliant buy as the UK economy sinks

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Recent brutality on financial markets has finally taken a breather on Friday. Phew. Investors hope that more Bank of England monetary loosening (as announced yesterday) will help stave off economic armageddon. They’re quietly confident that Chancellor Rishi Sunak is hours away from announcing more government help for battered business too.Share pickers desperately need respite after the shocking bloodbath on equity markets of the past month. Things can change very quickly in this fast-moving crisis, though, so investors need to keep taking steps to protect themselves. News of spiking infection rates, and failures to find a treatment and vaccine for coronavirus in the coming days, could easily send stock exchanges into a tailspin again.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…Defensive dynamoOne great way to keep investing in a safe and sensible way is by buying shares in utility companies. For some, they’re the ultimate safe-haven asset.. The services of these businesses — whether it be supplying water, electricity, broadband or waste management services — will remain essential however hard the coronavirus hits the UK economy.I recently explained why National Grid is one great way for FTSE 100 investors to play this theme. United Utilities Group (LSE: UU) is a similarly-great buy in these troubled times.This business provides water and wastewater services in the North West of England. It therefore doesn’t have to worry about the sort of earnings turbulence that most of the broader market is expecting. If anything, contamination fears have driven demand for water through the roof more recently as we collectively wash our hands like never before.In recent days, United Utilities has received an extra, less obvious, boost. Those extra Bank of England rate reductions this week make it cheaper for the firm to service its enormous debt mountain. Fresh from cutting the benchmark to 0.25% last week, the bank went one step further and cut it to new record lows of 0.1% on Thursday. And a reduction all the way back to zero still can’t be ruled out.Too cheap to missUnited Utilities hasn’t been spared the rout that has enveloped share markets over the past month. Just as a high tide lifts all boats, plummeting investor confidence can pull all stocks — regardless of their risk profile and their overall quality — below the surface as well.There are two important things to note though. Firstly, United Utilities’ 19% price drop over the past month is less than the comparable 30% decline endured by the broader FTSE 100. This illustrates the water giant’s supreme defensive qualities versus most other blue-chips.And next, at least from a long-term buyer’s perspective, this provides a terrific dip-buying opportunity. At current prices, United Utilities deals on a cheap forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 14.6 times. It boasts a meaty 5% dividend yield too. The defensiveness of its operations means that it’s in much better shape to make good on its dividend forecasts than much of the broader market.

Nili Latu’s big hit on the Cherry Blossom’s Shaun Webb

first_imgWednesday Jul 2, 2008 Nili Latu’s big hit on the Cherry Blossom’s Shaun Webb Reminiscent of the crunching tackle he made on Lewis Moody during the 2007 Rugby World Cup, Tongan captain Nili Latu put in this smashing hit on the young Japanese fullback Shaun Webb recently in the Pacific Nations Cup.Latu was highly impressive at the World Cup with his physical brand of rugby as well as his fantastic leadership on the field, mainly through putting in tackles like this one.Unfortunately for the Tongans in this years Pacific Nations Cup though, they’ve been hit hard by the unavailability of key players based in Europe and subsequently havent won a match as of yet. The ever improving Japan shocked them on this occasion with a 35-13 victory that was a great achievement for the Japanese, who put up a decent fight against Australia A too.Under the guidance of former All Black John Kirwan, Japan have shown they’re no pushovers at this level and have scored a few fantastic tries in this years tournament.Physically though, the Tongans will always be more aggressive, and despite the loss, there was no shortage of effort on display, with this being just one of the crunching hits that the Japanese felt the full force of. :: Related Posts :: Rough night for Lewis Moody ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘Occupy Solidarity’ heads through U.S. to Cuba

first_imgVolunteers outside a warehouse in Queens, N.Y.,load a truck with materials bound for Cuba. WW photo: Anne PrudenFollowing a struggle at the border crossing between British Colombia, Canada, and Washington state, the 23rd Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba is rolling through the U.S. It will cross from Texas into Mexico, arriving in Havana on July 21. On July 31, the participants will cross back into the U.S. — openly declaring their travel to Cuba without the required U.S. government approval.On July 1, U.S. Customs at the West Coast Peace Arch border crossing stopped a Caravan truck full of humanitarian aid, diverting it to a parking lot at the commercial Pacific Truck border crossing. This shipment of aid included items such as medical supplies like wheelchairs, educational supplies and sports equipment, collected from cities and communities throughout the Canadian province of British Columbia.The U.S. Customs officials targeted the sporting equipment for banning and demanded the purchase of a bond. But public outcry and a determined mobilization prevailed. On July 2, the truck crossed with soccer balls and baseball mitts, license – and bond-free. East coast crossings from Canada into the U.S. were uneventful.Cuba is planning special events to welcome the travelers, including a tribute to IFCO founder and leader, the late Rev. Lucius Walker, whose ashes are kept at the Martin Luther King Center in Havana, and a 23-bus caravan that will circle through Havana, made up of some of the many school buses donated over the years.The school bus has become a symbol of this persistent and courageous challenge to the 53-year U.S. economic and terror war against Cuba. In 1993, during the Second Friendshipment, U.S. Treasury officials seized a little yellow school bus on the Texas-Mexico border near Laredo. The 13 Caravanistas on board refused to leave the bus and turned the fenced compound into liberated territory. They began a hunger strike that lasted 23 days until the bus was released to travel on to Cuba.The Friendshipment Caravan, which began in 1992, is the most extensive national outreach initiative challenging the U.S. blockade of the socialist island. Currently, it publicizes the unjust U.S. imprisonment of the Cuban 5 and defies the U.S. ban on its residents being able to freely travel to Cuba. The theme for the 2012 Caravan is Occupy Solidarity and it will celebrate Cuba’s commitment to sustainable development.The caravan stops in large and small communities, including Richmond, Va.; Witchita, Kan.; Birmingham, Ala.; Carbondale, Ill.; Pleasant Hill and Knoxville, Tenn.; El Paso, Dallas, Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas; Little Rock, Ark.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Corvallis, Wash.; Oklahoma City; Indianapolis; Boston; New York; Chicago; Washington; San Francisco; Los Angeles; Detroit; and many, many more.

Chelsea Manning wins release

first_imgChelsea ManningOver the strenuous objections of Pentagon chief Ash Carter, President Obama commuted the 35-year sentence of Chelsea Manning. She is now slated for release in May. Manning, who announced the day after she was sentenced by a military court that she is transgender, has spent the last seven years in a Marine stockade and federal male prison.Manning was a U.S. Marine intelligence analyst in Iraq. She turned over some 750,000 military files, diplomatic cables and videos to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks. One video showed helicopter crews laughing as they machine gunned several civilians in Baghdad in 2007, including two Reuters news reporters holding cameras.Additional files revealed that the Pentagon counted thousands more of its civilian victims than it had revealed to the U.S. public. Still others showed that the military knew that there was no justification for detaining prisoners at Guantánamo and that the detainees had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. Manning revealed pressure by Washington on other countries to maintain the infamous “rendition” torture chambers scattered around the globe.Since Chelsea Manning was arrested in 2010, she has been supported by many progressive organizations as well as the LGBTQ community. In the last few months, more than 117,000 online petition signatures were collected, calling on President Obama to commute Manning’s draconian sentence and release her.Faced with oppression so intense that she twice tried to commit suicide, last summer Manning conducted a highly publicized hunger strike. Although her jailers punished her for that by putting her in solitary confinement, she won key demands for hormone treatments and permission to wear some makeup and female undergarments.Manning has reported that she has not been harassed by fellow inmates at the Fort Leavenworth federal men’s prison. “I have friends,” she said.Manning and her determined supporters had to overcome intense opposition from the imperialist establishment, the military brass and the same intelligence agencies that conducted the tortures that she exposed. House Speaker Paul Ryan called Manning’s commutation “outrageous.” Trump’s pick for deputy national security director, K.T. McFarland, called for Manning to be tried for treason and executed. (, Jan. 18)With Donald Trump and many of his advisors openly advocating attacks on civilians, torture and other war crimes, Chelsea Manning’s hard-won release is an important victory. It means that these hard-core right-wingers, despite all their forces of repression, will face exposure of their crimes by brave heroes like Chelsea Manning and, sooner than they think, will face the judgment of the workers and oppressed here and across the planet.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Expert astounded at negligence of Limerick hospital consultants

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Limerick on Covid watch list Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April A MEDICAL expert has described the delayed diagnosis of fatal cancer in a 61-year old man, who had been in and out of the University Hospital in Limerick for a decade, as “astounding”.UK based Consultant Urological Surgeon, Ron Miller, made the remarks at the conclusion of his report into the treatment of the late Timothy Moynihan from Hospital in Co. Limerick who died of cancer in 2009.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mr Moynihan’s son, Gerard, settled a civil High Court case for damages against the HSE for an undisclosed sum before Christmas.Mr Miller said that raised levels in tests carried out ten years earlier and later abnormalities in Mr Moynihan’s prostate should have set off alarm bells and led to further tests and treatment which could have saved him.“Patients do not turn up with disseminated prostate cancer with bone secondaries in a period of days or weeks. This process usually takes many years,” he said.Having examined the medical notes of Mr Moynihan’s treatment and investigations, which began in 1997 and led to a diagnosis of early bladder cancer in 1998, Mr Miller criticised the lack of a particular procedure – a bimanual examination – which he said was vital in checking the prostate of anyone at risk.The prostate cancer was not diagnosed until two months before Mr Moynihan’s death.“While it is not uncommon to find difficulties in the diagnosis of prostate cancer by General Practitioners, the negligence of the Urology Department remains astounding.“In 2008, Mr Moynihan presented to hospital with terminal disseminated prostate cancer, despite the fact that he had undergone 10 years of intensive hospital monitoring for a superficial bladder cancer involving regular check cystoscopies by experienced Urological Surgeons,” Mr Miller said.“The fact that multiple check cystoscopies for bladder cancer were carried out without bimanual examination is prima facie evidence of poor standard of care. On the balance of probabilities, there is no doubt that had Mr Moynihan’s prostate cancer being diagnosed at an earlier stage curative treatment could have been instituted thus preventing the disseminated nature of disease and fatal outcome,” he concluded.The dead man’s son, Gerard told the Limerick Post: “these were basic tests but they were not done. It’s unbelievable that urologists did not diagnose the cancer”,Gerard obtained his father’s medical records on foot of a Freedom of Information request.“I would urge everyone who is reading this and has any symptoms to insist on having these tests, particularly men over the age of fifty”.The HSE said it cannot comment on individual cases.
