Earlier this month, the Maltese Parliament gave its approval to the third and final reading of the new national Gaming Act. The MGA will take on a greater supervisory role, with a focus on compliance and enforcement functions to combat issues such as money laundering and funding of terrorism. In addition, the MGA now gains new intervention powers, while the framework also formalises the role of the MGA’s Player Support Unit as a mediator between aggrieved players and operators. As part of this approach, remote gaming licensees will now be required to adhere to the new unified system, whereby players that self-exclude from one operator will not be able to access the services of another. The MGA recently introduced a similar system for land-based operators in the country. Heathcliff Farrugia, chief executive of the MGA, said: “The protection of players is at the heart of the MGA’s regulatory agenda, and this project further underlines our resolve to ensure that players have the necessary tools to engage in gaming services responsibly. “Over the years we have witnessed efforts from gaming operators to implement various responsible gaming measures, and thus we strongly believe that the unified self-exclusion system will be well received by the industry and consumers alike.” Over the coming weeks, the MGA will assess the suitability of a range of technical solutions for the new system. The process will include public consultation, followed by a call for requests for the technical development and implementation of the solution. The MGA is also considering opening the system for subscription on a voluntary basis to operators licensed in other regions, but will initially focus on companies active in Malta.Related article: Maltese Parliament approves revamped gaming laws Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliancelast_img read more

Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img When Trainline (LSE: TRN) issued its trading update at the end of last year, the reaction from the press and analysts was largely positive. Given that revenue was up 26% and international revenue increased 90%, this was hardly surprising. Despite this, shares tumbled. I think this has created a good time to jump on board the Trainline express. Trainline’s strengths Trainline boasts an impressive team of technology experts and has been turning heads for the way it applies agile working practices. That, coupled with its expertise and technology in online booking engines, is what makes it interesting. I like it because the technology is good, and its ability to develop the technology is proven.  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…The story of the Trainline share price, from IPO to today The company floated last June. There are usually good reasons, as Warren Buffett himself has pointed out, to be reluctant to buy at the time of an IPO. There is plenty of evidence to back this idea up. Consider, for example, the fortunes of Aston Martin since its IPO. But, it is not always the case. The cheapest that shares in Alphabet/Google have ever been was at IPO. Trainline could be another exception to the rule. In fact, shares in Trainline surged at IPO, at one point up by a fifth. Then the inevitable happened.There was a stock market reaction.Since 17 December, when the trading update was released, shares have fallen from 520p to 469p. Sure, they are still higher than the IPO price — 411p — but they may fall further before recovering.These things are impossible to predict exactly, but I believe that Trainline shares are in fact on a journey heading north, with just the occasional short-term reversal en route.Why did the Trainline share price fall?How do we explain the fall in the share price? The company underestimated the cost of the IPO, meaning that the company made a loss in its first half. However, we knew about that last September, a long time before Trainline shares fell so sharply.Another reason for the fall lies with the recent announcement that Virgin Rail, squeezed out of the train operation business, is launching its own train booking system. Markets may have chosen to ditch the shares because of news of a potential competitor, but Trainline was never going to have the UK train booking business to itself forever. Also, Trainline has responded with a split ticketing option, enabling travellers to book two or more tickets on the same journey at a saving.Bigger fish, a bigger ocean creates the opportunity Trainline’s strength lies in its ability to build on its technology and generate business overseas, coupled with the potential to eventually diversify into other sectors, such as a booking engine for car sharing. In the longer run, Trainline’s competitors won’t just be companies like Virgin Rail in the UK, they will be companies with their own booking engines across the globe, for trains and all other forms of transport. The Ubers of this world are also in this space.Trainline operates in a market with enormous potential, which is why I like its chances.

Enter Your Email Address By any measure, 2020 was a tough year for investors. After a gentle start, all hell broke loose as Covid-19 waves washed over the world. This sent the FTSE 100 index plunging at the fastest rate I can recall since its creation in 1984.The FTSE 100’s March meltdownAt the end of 2019, the FTSE 100 closed at 7,542.4 points. It then gently climbed, peaking at 7,674.6 on 17 January. Alas, this 1.8% rise gave no hint of the perfect storm to come. As Covid-19 spread globally, stock markets assumed the crash position. With investors all rushing to sell risky assets, share prices collapsed.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…By 23 March 2020 (‘Meltdown Monday’), the FTSE 100 had lost 2,680 points since its 2020 peak to close at 4,993.90. Thus, the UK’s main market index had collapsed by more than a third (34.9%) in under 10 weeks. That’s among the steepest and most brutal market crashes I’ve seen in 35 years of investing. But, as billionaire investor Warren Buffett remarked, “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful”.Buying in March 2020 was a great moveIn late March 2020, as the world was swamped with fear, I decided to be greedy. One reliable investment rule I’ve absorbed is to buy big when asset prices are low. Generally speaking, paying low prices for decent stocks is a winning strategy, especially with time on your side. A year ago, my wife and I pumped all of our cash into shares, mainly US and global stocks.The bumper returns over the past year have been outstanding (enough to retire today, should we wish to). As for the FTSE 100, it stands at 6,734.71 points today. That’s a healthy gain of over 1,740 points since Meltdown Monday. This equates to a rebound of more than a third (34.9%) in just over 12 months. Nice.Not all FTSE 100 shares bounced backOf course, not all FTSE 100 shares have gained in value, like these five big winners. In fact, over the past year, nine of the Footsie’s 101 shares have actually fallen in value. For the record, these are the FTSE 100’s six biggest fallers in the year to today:BAE Systems (aerospace engineering) -8.1%National Grid (electricity & gas utility) -8.7%BP (oil & gas) -10.2%GlaxoSmithKline (pharmaceuticals) -13.6%HSBC Holdings (global bank) -15.1%Rolls-Royce Holdings (aero-engine maker) -23.6%I like two of these losersThe first theme among these losers is air travel. BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce have been walloped by the collapse in airmiles flown. With international air travel not expected to return to normal before 2024, it could be tough going for FTSE 100 stalwarts BAE and RR.The second theme among these laggards is energy. As oil prices collapsed, former FTSE 100 heavyweight BP took a beating in 2020, before bouncing back since November. Likewise, National Grid shares have suffered due to reduced energy usage. Of the two remaining losers, HSBC has suffered due to its status as one of the world’s leading lenders. And GSK has suffered a hit to earnings as routine vaccinations were cancelled during the Covid-19 crisis.As a committed value investor, I try to find tomorrow’s winners from today’s losers. Hence, I love rooting around in the FTSE 100’s bargain bin, looking for beaten-down shares in solid businesses. Of the above six losers, I most like the look of HSBC and GSK. Any strong economic recovery post-Covid-19 would benefit these two stocks, so they are both on my watchlist. Image source: Getty Images. last_img read more

Photo: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops gathered on Zoom on July 28 for the first session of a two-day meeting on the theme of “Communion, Divine and Human: Holy Eucharist and Racial Reconciliation.” Though the two topics may seem separate, they have the same theological underpinning, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry explained during a sermon given at Morning Prayer.“Holy Eucharist and racial justice and reconciliation – Communion, divine and human – may not seem like they are related, but they are intimately related,” Curry said. “On the surface, they seem disconnected. But behind each one is the struggle for communion and relationship with God.”The House of Bishops typically meets twice a year – in the spring and the fall. The bishops were supposed to be together at the Lambeth Conference in England this week, but with the conference postponed until 2022, the bishops decided to gather for this special session to discuss the pressing concerns of racism and ways to maintain virtual faith communities.The highlight of the three-hour meeting was a discussion between Curry and Hilton Als, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, professor and theater critic for The New Yorker who frequently writes about race and identity in American culture. Als, who grew up partly in The Episcopal Church, shared his perspectives on race and racism in America, stories from his experience growing up as a Black man in New York City and his visions of what racial harmony could look like.The topic of communion – both the sacrament and the broader state of being united – ran through Als’ discussion with Curry and Curry’s sermon, which referenced recent debates about Eucharistic experimentation brought on by COVID-19.“There’s been a lot of talk about the Holy Eucharist, and we all have missed it,” Curry said. “The Holy Eucharist isn’t a disembodied sacrament. … I believe we speak of the Eucharist as a foretaste of the kingdom. It is a foretaste of what God intends to happen – that all of God’s children are gathered around the throne.”And when racial reconciliation is pursued and achieved, Curry said, that is a form of communion.“We are not here to discuss the mechanics of Eucharist – how shall it happen. We got to figure that out, I know, but that’s not what this is about. This is about communion with God and communion with each other. We are not here just to solve the problem of race. We’re here to figure out the problem of that human race,” Curry said during his sermon.Als talked about some of the times in his life when he felt that communion and the times when he felt the opposite – the alienation and degradation of racism. He shared how it felt to sometimes be viewed as a threat rather than a person when he reached his teens, and how his Jewish neighbors – one of whom was a Holocaust survivor – encouraged his penchant for writing by giving him a typewriter.The recognition and the action taking place around racism in America in recent weeks encourage him.“I’m hoping that we can keep going. I don’t think that anything is entirely eradicated because of activism because then we wouldn’t need to be activists. Everyone in the church is an activist. And as an artist, I’m an activist,” Als told Curry during their discussion. “I [have] such hope because of what people like you bring to ceremony, and to the conversation around … race in general. And so I do feel much more hopeful than I did five years ago.”Als also spoke about the importance of including Black narratives in educational and historical accounts “so that our history, including stories about Absalom Jones and so on, are going to be included in the curriculum now because they have to wake up to the fact that America is not one story. It is many, many, many stories.”The meeting included a Q&A session with the bishops and Als, who answered questions such as how best to express the full human experience in sermons.“What propels us,” Als said, “is the belief that hope can be transformative – that if we live with hope, then we’re living with a kind of power that we can share with other people. … Even in despair, there’s hope.”The meeting continues on July 29 with a presentation on “Communion and Community Under Special Circumstances” from the Rt. Rev. Mary Gray-Reeves, former bishop of the Diocese of El Camino Real in California.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.
