No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm ALISTAIR Darling, the former chancellor, wasted over £1bn by using the private finance initiative (PFI) to fund a series of vote-winning projects in the run up to the election, according to a report by an influential group of MPs. The Public Accounts Committee found the taxpayer had to pay an extra £1bn for PFI deals financed during the crisis, after the credit crunch pushed up borrowing costs for infrastructure projects. Jesse Norman, a Tory member of the committee, told City A.M.: “The government was determined to push through these projects because it wanted to have lots of good news stories in the run up to the election.“But these deals were done at inflated prices.”Norman added that a “rudimentary analysis” of the projects Darling signed off in this period showed a large number benefited voters living in Labour marginal constituencies, suggesting the government was trying to skew the result of the election.The report also criticises the Treasury for failing to use its strong negotiating position – as a shareholder in RBS and Lloyds – to push down financing costs.

All eyes on ECB as Eurozone inflation hits 27-month high

first_img Share whatsapp THE euro jumped to a session high against the dollar yesterday, after surprisingly high inflation data increased the risk of a hike in interest rates.Consumer price inflation across the Eurozone hit 2.4 per cent in January, according to a “flash” estimate by Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office.Inflation in the single currency area had exceeded the European Central Bank’s (ECB) target of “just under two per cent” in December, reaching 2.2 per cent.January’s rate was the highest since October 2008, when it was 3.2 per cent.The euro rose around 20 basis points versus the dollar to trade at $1.3662, up around 0.3 per cent on the day. While ECB president Jean-Claude Trichet has said the Eurozone’s historically low levels of rates are “appropriate,” his comments this year have widely been interpreted as more hawkish than usual.“We are permanently alert [about the threat of inflation],” he said in January. “We are never pre-committed not to move interest rates.” However, some economists say the inflationary pressures are coming mainly from higher commodity prices, and are likely to be temporary.“We suspect that January’s uptick in inflation was mainly driven by higher food price inflation,” said ING’s Martin van Vliet. “Unless commodity prices continue to surge, inflation is still set to fall back again later this year.”“Although we continue to expect hawkish rhetoric from the ECB, they are still unlikely to pull the trigger on interest rates until the fourth quarter of this year,” van Vliet added.

Penn hails ‘milestone’ $2.8bn Pinnacle acquisition

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Deal extends Penn’s land-based network to 40 facilities in 18 jurisdictions Email Address Penn hails ‘milestone’ $2.8bn Pinnacle acquisition Tags: Online Gambling Regions: US Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Strategy Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Penn National Gaming has today (Monday) completed its previously announced $2.8bn (£2.1bn/€2.4bn) acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment, in a move that the company has billed as a “significant milestone” for its growth strategy. Under the deal, unanimously approved by Penn shareholders in April, the casino operator will take full ownership of Pinnacle and significantly extend its land-based network in the US to 40 facilities across 18 jurisdictions.The company will now have a presence in Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and West Virginia. Penn expects the acquisition to be accretive to its free cash flow per share in the first year after closing, with around $100m in expected annual run-rate cost synergies, excluding one-time transaction costs. Penn CEO Timothy Wilmott said: “Our acquisition of Pinnacle Entertainment marks a significant milestone in Penn National’s 24-year history of growth as a public company, which has been predicated on our unwavering commitment to deliver exceptional entertainment to customers, support for the local communities where we operate and enhancement of value for our shareholders. “With the expected incremental free cash flow to be generated from our expanded base of operations, we believe we are well positioned to reduce leverage, evaluate additional accretive strategic growth investments and opportunistically return capital to shareholders.” Today’s completion also covers related divestitures to Boyd Gaming and various real estate transactions with Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI). This includes the sale and leaseback of the real estate associated with the Penn Plainridge Park Casino in Massachusetts for $250m. This has been added to the Pinnacle master lease assumed by Penn. In addition, the deal covers the sale of real estate associated with Pinnacle’s Belterra Park to an affiliate of Boyd for approximately $57.7m through funding provided by GLPI to Boyd. The completion comes amid major movement in the US sports betting market as companies seek to capitalise on the legalisation of such activities in some states, following the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA earlier this year. Last month, Pinnacle opened its first sports wagering service in Mississippi after the state became the fourth to regulate sports betting since the repeal of PASPA. Penn is working with William Hill on various sports betting ventures in various states. However, the link-up with Pinnacle looks set to extend Penn’s sports wagering reach into more states and gambling properties.Image: Max Pixel 15th October 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Tackling the 2019 Florida allergy season: Mango Pollen

first_img Thomas Ogren 1 COMMENT The Anatomy of Fear Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! June 9, 2019 at 3:57 pm Share on Facebook Tweet on Twittercenter_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Mango pollen almost certainly would be allergenic, but mango trees don’t shed much pollen and are insect-pollinated. Most allergy from mango comes from eating it, and this allergy is probably much more common than realized. People with an allergy to mango can then also become allergic to mango relatives: cashews, poison ivy, poison oak, pepper trees, etc. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Nobody likes allergies.In fact, a recent study from Cornell University’s Survey Research Institute found that up to 59% of travelers would choose a hotel based on the availability, or lack thereof, allergen-friendly rooms. Though most people associate Florida with the hot summer season, allergy season in the Sunshine State can be brutal — especially if you’re allergic to one of the state’s popular cash crops, the mango.In 2016, approximately 5.3% of kids between the ages of 12 and 17 had food allergies. Although mango allergies are quite rare, they can be just as uncomfortable — and dangerous — as your traditional food allergens. Let’s take a look at the three ways they manifest.Oral Allergy Syndrome: Known by its acronym OAS, oral allergy syndrome is easily recognized. As a result of similarities in the proteins found in mangoes and pollens (most often birch pollen or mugwort pollen), the body expresses a reaction almost immediately after a piece of fresh fruit has been consumed. Most often, it resolves itself without treatment in minutes but can be fairly uncomfortable.Contact Dermatitis: Due to a specific substance found in plants of the Anacardiaceae (called urushiol), contact reaction can result as well. Urushiol is the substance that causes rashes from poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac, meaning that your child will experience a similar rash — generally on the face — within hours of eating the mango fruit. The chemical is found in high concentrations in the peel and the fruit just beneath the peel, causing small, itchy blisters to form on those who come into contact with it.Anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis is the most extreme form of an allergic reaction. The response occurs within minutes of eating the fruit and can include difficulty breathing, wheezing, hives, facial swelling, and tightness of the throat. Those at risk of anaphylaxis should always carry injectable epinephrine in the event of accidental exposure to mango or any cross-reactive substance.Allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. Most people associate allergies with microscopic pollen or animal shedding; while it’s true that pet dander can seriously irritate your sinuses (animal cells are between 0.001 to 0.003 centimeters in diameter, making it exceptionally easy for them to travel into your system), food allergies can do just as much harm and cause just as much inconvenience. Vigilance is key as the summer steps into full swing; if you notice odd sensations or feel uncomfortable when eating mangoes, an iconic and enjoyable part of the warm season, it’s best to talk to your doctor. At the end of the day, it’s always better to be safe rather than sorry — especially if your allergy is severe enough to cause a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction.

A project for 163 dwellings and shops in the expansion area of Sagunto. The area has a low density and building heights are limited to 3 levels, except for two sites that make up the connection to the historical city center through a pedestrian bridge over Palencia river. The main problem we had to overcome was high density, and the large number of homes requested by the developer, which inevitably requires a perimeter large enough to allow natural light into every room. Save this picture!© Mayte PieraAs it was also important to supply a commercial area and design a large public area with a pool, we decided to create three blocks, one longitudinal to block off the north and the prevailing winds, and two partially elevated towers to have more relationship space. As a main material for enclosures we chose exposed brick in two colors, corresponding to different volumes, the lighter one in static areas and the darker one in the more dynamic areas.Save this picture!© Mayte PieraAs the housing program was quite varied; two, three and four bedroom apartments plus duplex homes, needing openings on a range of facades, we decided to group this variation in small areas, with terraces, where the variety of colors chosen is imposed on the range of the openings, creating a compensated puzzle in the view from afar.
