iGB Market Monitor – the Nordics

This quarter we focus on the Nordics, home to some of the most advanced digital economies in Europe which have given rise to operating giants such as Kindred and Betsson and the most innovative suppliers and affiliates in the space.With the official market estimate of SEK5.65bn (€545m) likely on the low side for what has been one of the best-performing igaming markets for many years, Sweden’s market opening in January 2019 will provide a tipping point for regulation in the region. With this shift will come a greater understanding of the value of the individual markets and how operator and supplier share of the grey space could translate into the regulated dot.se environment, with Kindred, Betsson and LeoVegas currenty the strongest positioned among the currently Malta-domiciled Swedish giants.A tax rate at the lower end of regulated market levies to date of 18% GGR will benefit all stakeholders by supporting the channelisation of activity to Swedish-regulated entities. These will of course include current lottery/gaming monopoly Svenska Spel and horse racing monopoly ATG. Kindred and Betsson are among the operators that have publicly bemoaned the potential for the former to parachute their competitive advantage and relationships built up over many years of monopoly into the regulated environment. The non-monopoly operators have so far failed to gain assurances or clarity from Swedish authorities over whether Svenska Spel will be prevented from cross-selling slots and other products to players acquired via its non-competitive lottery business, which will remain under monopoly.This means they will need to prepare for a repeat of the scenario in neighbouring Denmark, where Danske Spil was only stopped from pursuing this strategy after several years, by which time it had secured a dominant position in the market. Questions also remain over issues such as the proposed bonus cap, argued by stakeholders at our recent Nordic Affiliate Conference as potentially encouraging the type of irresponsible gambling behaviours the policy is intended to prevent. The mass-market presence of the monopolies, dot.com positioning of Kindred, Betsson and LeoVegas and a backdrop of slowing growth make it tempting to predict a polarisation of performance among operators similar to that seen in the UK where Bet365 and Sky Bet have left their more traditional land-based rivals flailing in their wake.But this of course doesn’t tell the whole story in the UK, where the big operators’ focus on sports betting and consolidation caused them to take their eye off the ball and enabled a host of niche gaming and casino-focused brands to emerge and carve market share.The Swedish narrative is likely to unfold in similarly unforeseen and unanticipated directions from next year.Click here or the e-mag below to view the full iGB Market Monitor Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Norway Sweden Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling This special edition of the iGB Market Monitor focuses on the Nordics ahead of the much-anticipated re-regulation in Sweden Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Bingolast_img read more

Kohli, though, got out five short of a fifty.The Indian captain hit three boundaries in his 59-ball knock before pacer Lockie Ferguson had him caught behind with a quick delivery that caught the batsman by surprise.In the course of his 26th ODI fifty, Dhawan became the joint fourth fastest batsman to reach 5000 runs. Dhawan needed 118 innings to reach the mark.This knock will bring some relief for Dhawan as he hasn’t scored a half century in his last nine innings.Earlier, opting to bat, the New Zealanders were off to an inauspicious start, losing both openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro within the first five overs with just 18 runs on the board.By sending back Guptill in his 56th match, the 28-year-old Shami became the fastest Indian to reach 100 wickets in ODIs.Coming into the series after a hugely successful 2018, Ross Taylor looked good in his 41-ball 24, but he was brilliantly caught and bowled by Chahal, who lured the batsman to dance down the pitch a tad too early with his change of pace.Till Taylor was there alongside Williamson, things looked good for New Zealand, as the duo played a few delightful shots, especially the skipper whose trademark backfoot punch through the covers stood out.Tom Latham was dismissed in similar fashion, with leg-spinner Chahal being the bowler.Henry Nicholls and Mitchell Santner came, swung their willows for a six and a couple of boundaries, and got out to Jadhav and Shami respectively as New Zealand stuttered at 133 for six in the 30th over.By that time, Williamson too had had enough, and got out while trying to hoick Yadav over long-on.Also Read: India, Kohli maintain top positions in ICC Test RankingsWe are forced to play third pacer whenever Hardik isn’t available: KohliCricket ka king Kaun?: Star promotes India-NZ series as Kane vs Kohli SportSport News Bett1Open 2021 Final: Belinda Bencic vs Liudmila Samsonova, head to head, live stream, all you need to know India produced cricket of the calibre that has become synonymous with Virat Kohli‘s men to crush New Zealand in the first ODI but a bizarre and unprecedented sun-induced interruption overshadowed the on-field action here Wednesday.Entering the five-match rubber following maiden Test and ODI series triumphs in Australia, India signalled their intent with a clinical display, which saw them chase down a revised target of 156 by eights wickets in 34.5 overs. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeGrammarlyImprove Your Spelling With This Helpful Browser ExtensionGrammarlyUndoCBS NewsThink Your Commute Is Safe?

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Those who invested in Ocado (LSE: OCDO) at its peak in late September are sitting on a 20% loss today. Still, investors who bought at the start of the year are on a 75% gain so far. But why has the Ocado share price fallen so much in the past couple of months?There are now three Covid-19 vaccines showing good results, but we only learned of those this month. So it’s not just that. I reckon there’s also been a lot of profit taking, for one thing. The bigger mystery to me is why the shares soared so high in the first place.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…After the lockdown hit, it was clear that online sales would get a boost. That’s proved to be the case, with Tesco a good example. Online sales look set to account for around £5.5bn at Tesco in 2020, up from £3.3bn in 2019. And that still only accounts for about 16% of Tesco’s total sales.Ocado share price peakOcado, incidentally, briefly exceeded the market cap of Tesco earlier this year. But the position has reversed again since the Ocado share price has fallen back and Tesco’s has risen. I’m convinced that the pandemic has merely brought the large-scale shift to online selling forward. I really don’t see any going back from this year’s progress. Now, Ocado is clearly a leader in the field of online retail technology, and buying the best can reward us with long-term growth profits.But, I’ve watched so many internet-based growth businesses in the past couple of decades. And every single one attracted way too much optimism in its early days and became horribly overvalued. And I can’t help thinking the Ocado share price has gone exactly the same way in 2020.Growth stock booms and bustsEvery one of those over-extended growth shares fell back. Look at ASOS, for example. The ASOS share price is still way down on the heights it reached as long ago as 2014. And that’s after flying even higher in 2018 before another phenomenal crunch.The Ocado share price hasn’t really gone through the growth share booms and busts yet. Or rather, I think it could well be going through its first.Fundamental valuations are hard to make much sense of in situations like this. A price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio can make little sense, for example, for a company whose earnings are still some way in the future. But I always like to remember that ASOS shares were trading at P/E multiples of around 80 at their 2018 peak. In 2020, with the price way down from then, we’re looking at a forward P/E of a relatively modest 40 or so. And that’s on bigger earnings.No profit, no P/EWhat about Ocado? The company is still making losses, so there’s no earnings figure to compare to the Ocado share price. Ocado did record a profit in 2016, but with its shares on a P/E of around 270. Revenue is a fair bit higher now, which softens that a bit.But I fear Ocado’s first few years of sustainable profits will be at astronomical P/E values. That is, if the Ocado share price maintains today’s levels. And I really don’t think it will. I’d buy Tesco and ASOS now, mind. Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

They also allow all of the apartments a view to the park and an orientation to the sun.

The Renovation of a Hutong House / Chaoffice

The urban condition of Ciqikou street west area, the site of this project, is semi-chaotic or could be described as a slum, which is a typical urban form in Hutong areas today in Beijing city. The local people have coined the term “messy yard”.The spatial condition of the “messy yard” is completely different from its original form as a Siheyuan Yard. The way in which people have inhabited it has changed to a large degree over time.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouFrom atypological view, the messy yards area is more like other slums which can be found everywhere in the world, such as St Paul, Delhi, or Istanbul. – Multiple land ownerships, illegally sold and bought property and occupation in history, disgracefully crowded and insanitary, lack of sunlight and fresh air…….Save this picture!ExplosionOn the other hand, over time, the residents changed, people have come and gone, immigrants of the first generations grew into large families. Invisible contrasts made between neighbors help to share the space. It seems that, the spatial condition becomes solid and unshakeable. The whole urban area becomes a prison. Residents are virtually trapped within the spaces in which they live.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouThe urban reality may not change easily. The above description is the background of this project.The strategy is to maintain the original structure on its original boundaries, in order to keep the relationship between house and environment. Both windows and the door are modified in position and scale. A continuous canopy was installed.Save this picture!SectionWork within the boundary is about rearranging the spatial resources, in order to  relink the prison like space back to the city and nature.For the multiple aims, the strategy is about two “boxes”, “installations” or “chambers” in the original room. They are “room for table” and “room for privacy”. We call them RT and RP.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouThe “RT” is a boundary within itself. The two sides are outside the public corridor and inside a private space. More generally, the “table room” changed the boundary from a wall into a volume.Outside the volume, for recreating of part of the roof, there are new possibilities for windows, 3 meters high, which one can open for sunlight; but without the need to sacrifice privacy.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouThe new structure is a construct inside the original wall, which has been strengthened. In addition, the reinforced concrete roof is stable enough for people’s weight. Open views and plenty of sun light come together to create a pleasant space.Save this picture!PlanInside the “RT”, double curtains function in several ways, controlling the light and privacy conditions. A rotatable window divides the “RT” into two independent rooms. A kitchen and a Studio. This plan meets the needs of the homeowner, as she loves to cook. When the window rotates, the table can be used on both sides. meaning the space on the table can be fully utilized and shared by both rooms.The window below the roof and above table also functioned as an access to the roof.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouThe other side of the house is the “RP”, which is constructed by a light steel structure and plywood. This “chamber” is more like a Chinese traditional “Babu bed” which is both a bed as well as a bedroom. There are spaces for a bathroom, wardrobe, dressing room, etc. There is also a “roof space” on the top of the “bedroom” which provides a personal space for the homeowner, who can have a rest, read or meditate there.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouMost storage spaces are hidden under the table or bed. Thus, the place between two rooms could be a totally empty space for uncertain functions. Like a party room, family room, or play room.Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen HouAccording to the plan, functions within the house have been compressed into two defined spaces, leaving the centre completely free from the chaos which defined the the house completely prior to the plan being enacted. This has thus provided a sense of dignity for those using the space, as well as a sense of comfort. The space can thus also been seen as a sequence, the home being subdivided into both spaces made up entirely of functional aspects as well as spaces defined by clarity. In addition, a small section near the entrance was repaved, creating a bridge between the home itself and its outer environment, as well as extending this sequence outward. Save this picture!© Zhi Cheng, Wen Houthe strategy is experimental, the installation of two “boxes” cooperate with the original building, and at the same time keeping the relationship with its neighbors. It is my hope that this plan may be a way to stimulate further changes in the environment and urban fabric.Project gallerySee allShow lessWinners of the 2018 Building of the Year AwardsArchitecture NewsMindtree East Campus / CnT ArchitectsSelected Projects Share China Houses CopyHouses, Renovation•Beijing, Chinacenter_img Architects: Chaoffice Area Area of this architecture project Projects 2017 Year:  CopyAbout this officeChaofficeOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBeijingChinaPublished on February 08, 2018Cite: “The Renovation of a Hutong House / Chaoffice” 07 Feb 2018.

The world of “Logan” has plenty of mysteries, some of which are never answered and some that are answered passively in the background, encouraging a rewatch to catch things that may have been missed otherwise.The main issue with the plot revolve around some specific story beats that may come across as cliche, but this never detracts too much from the story’s overall quality. The film can also be slow at times, especially compared to other movies in the comic book genre, but these slow moments provide some nice emotional segments for the characters.These small plot issues can be overlooked due to the extremely strong performances delivered by the cast. Jackman leads the way with his best performance as Wolverine, providing the snark the character is known for mixed with a newfound weariness. Stewart also performs well as a weaker and more confused Professor X, complementing Jackman nicely. The real standout, however, is newcomer Dafne Keen as Laura. Keen provides a tangible sense of strength and pure rage in her role, making her extremely fun to watch and easy to invest in. Boyd Holbrook rounds out the cast as the villainous and arrogant Pierce, making him a nice foil to Wolverine.These performances help to make the film’s character development the driving force of the film. Wolverine’s arc is extremely well-done, feeling concise yet complete and believable. The heart of the film comes from the bonds that the three leads foster and develop through their journey, making it easy to care about what happens to them and leading to some satisfying payoffs in the end. The film also feels like a culmination of all the films featuring Wolverine and Professor X, making it even more impactful and conclusive.“Logan” is also incredible visually. The film’s lighting and color choices help emphasize the different locations and how they feel, ranging from the solitude of the desert to the hustle and bustle of the city. These backdrops and locations also provide a sense of realistic wonder, emphasizing the natural and practical look of the film. The film also contains some beautiful shots that come across as simple yet extremely effective in their nature. The only detractor in the film’s visuals come from some barely-used CGI that seems out of place in comparison to everything else.Overall, “Logan” is a must-see for fans of the character or comic book movies in general. Audiences should know that the film takes it’s R-rating seriously, however, and ups the language and violence to “Deadpool” levels and makes it inappropriate for younger audiences compared to the previous films. Verdict:An emotionally compelling journey from start to finish, “Logan” blends powerful performances and stunning visuals to create an incredible send-off for one of cinema’s most beloved heroes.9/10 Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Linkedin Chris Garcia is a senior film and journalism double major from Midland, Texas.
