first_img Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Government to announce extra spending on problem gambling treatment as part of long-term health spending plan Extra funding for the treatment of problem gambling in England is set to be included in the government’s new 10-year strategy for health spending.The NHS Long Term Plan, to be published this afternoon, will put a focus on investment in mental health services, which will rise to at least £2.3bn a year by 2023/24. As part of this investment, additional funding and resources will be allocated to create more dedicated services for the treatment of problem gambling.The plan will see around two million more people who suffer anxiety, depression or other mental health issues receive help over the next decade, with 24-hour access to crisis care.“There will be a new guarantee that investment in primary, community and mental health care will grow faster than the growing overall NHS budget,” a Department of Health spokesperson said.“This will fund a £4.5bn new service model for the 21st century across England, where health bodies come together to provide better, joined up care in partnership with local government.”The Daily Mirror newspaper reported over the weekend that Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered Health Secretary Matt Hancock to establish more NHS treatment centres dedicated to the treatment of gambling addiction. Currently there is just one centre of this kind, based in Fulham, west London.A second is being established by problem gambling funding body GambleAware, which commissioned a new NHS treatment centre worth in November 2018. The Leeds-based NHS Northern Gambling Clinic will open in April 2019, and operate through a partnership between Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and problem gambling charity GamCare.GamCare is also in the process of developing a problem gambling support team for the local area to help identify, screen, and support those affected by problem gambling.The NHS Long Term Plan pledge to bring mental and physical care together was welcomed by campaigners.“We are really pleased to see that mental health is such a key focus in the NHS long term plan and we welcome the £2.3bn set aside for mental health services,” said Paul Farmer, chief executive of mental health charity Mind.“This is the kind of sustained investment we need to see to put mental health on an equal footing with physical health and, if delivered, this plan will make a difference to the lives of thousands of people with mental health problems.” 7th January 2019 | By contenteditorcenter_img Topics: Legal & compliance Regions: UK & Ireland Gambling addiction services in England set for funding boost Legal & compliancelast_img read more

2 FTSE 100 bargains I’d buy in this stock market crash

first_img 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. 2 FTSE 100 bargains I’d buy in this stock market crash Image source: Getty Images. Timing the FTSE 100 is always a difficult task. But it’s even more challenging during a stock market crash. News flow surrounding coronavirus is impossible to accurately predict. And this means the index could move sharply upwards or downwards in the short run.However, in the long run the FTSE 100 could have recovery potential. It has a solid track record of recording successful comebacks from its downturns.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…As such, now could be the right time to buy these two FTSE 100 shares. Yes, they may face uncertain near-term futures. But their valuations suggest that they offer wide margins of safety.BarrattCoronavirus is having a significant impact on the financial prospects of housebuilder Barratt (LSE: BDEV). The company released an update recently that showed it is seeking to offset reduced sales by a number of measures. These include postponing recruitment, suspending all land buying activity and delaying all non-essential capital expenditure.These actions could help to mitigate the impact of a sharp fall in demand for new homes in the short run. Furthermore, the business has a cash pile of £380m. This could place it in a relatively sound position from which to recover as economic activity in the UK gradually ramps up.Barratt’s shares have declined by 37% since the start of the year. They could experience further declines in the short run, of course. But likewise, they may experience a strong recovery as the UK’s lockdown is gradually eased.With a loose monetary policy now set to remain in place over the medium term, the affordability of new homes may have increased as a result of coronavirus. As such, now could be the right time to buy shares in Barratt while they appear to offer a wide margin of safety.ITVAnother FTSE 100 company that faces a highly uncertain near-term outlook is ITV (LSE: ITV). It has taken measures to reduce its costs, as demand for TV advertising is likely to experience a sharp decline due to reduced economic activity and weak consumer confidence. In fact, in the company’s recent updates it has highlighted that demand for advertising has fallen across a broad range of sectors.Of course, ITV had already been facing difficult operating conditions prior to coronavirus. Its investments in areas such as streaming services and digital operations could improve its competitive position in the long term. Its plans to become more efficient may also act as a catalyst on its bottom line in the coming years.The stock’s decline of 56% since the start of 2020 highlights its cyclicality and its reliance on the UK economy for the vast majority of its revenue. Although further falls in its share price cannot be ruled out in the near term, the company’s financial strength and long-term strategy may enable it to deliver a sound recovery over the coming years.

Barclays’ share price is beating the market in 2021: what next?

Lloyds Banking Group Roland Head | Saturday, 27th March, 2021 | More on: BARC Barclays “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” +12% +45% NatWest Group +16% 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. What’s behind this rapid share price surge? I’ve been taking a look to find out more.What’s goodSince taking charge of Barclays in 2015, CEO Jes Staley has resisted investors pressure to scale back the group’s investment bank. Mr Staley has stuck to his vision of pairing Barclays’ UK-US investment bank with its high street operations.The wisdom of this strategy was uncertain until last year, when Mr Staley’s bet paid off. Crashing UK markets triggered hard times in the real economy, as many businesses faced a sudden slowdown.Many of Barclays’ corporate clients needed extra cash to survive lockdown. The group’s investment bankers were happy to help by raising funds on the debt and equity markets. A busy year saw income from corporate and investment banking rise by 22% to £12.5bn. According to management, it was the best year ever.I think this strength is the main reason why the Barclays share price has outperformed its big rivals. This extra income helped to limit the damage from lower income at the group’s high street bank and credit card business.Banks such as Lloyds and NatWest don’t have the same investment banking capabilities, so suffered bigger hits to profits last year.What’s not so goodI’m confident that business in Barclays’ credit card and high street businesses will return to normal over time. But I’m not so sure what to expect from its investment banking division.When a company reports record results, I think it pays to think about the situation.Is this a genuine growth scenario where I can expect further progress over future years? Or is this a situation where unusual circumstances have boosted profits?I can’t be sure how Barclays will perform over the next year or two. But I don’t expect another record-breaking performance from investment banking this year. I think what’s more likely is that we’ll see a more middling performance — similar to recent years, in fact.The Barclays share price: what I’d doThe latest broker consensus forecasts suggest that Barclays’ earnings and its dividend will rise in 2021. Estimates for this year put the stock on 11 times forecast earnings, with a 2.9% dividend yield.However, although profits are expected to rise this year, forecasts suggest they will still be lower than in 2019. Earnings aren’t expected to rise above 2019 levels until 2022.In my view, Barclays and Mr Staley still have a lot to prove. But the shares look affordable to me at current levels. Over time, I expect further gains. I’d certainly be comfortable buying and holding Barclays shares today.center_img Enter Your Email Address 1yr change (26/03/21) Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares FTSE 100 Roland Head has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Also in the front seat, Minor filled in the gaps between Campbell’s appeals: “Hallelujah … Glory, glory.”Half a dozen others also do the prayer drives. They pray for an end to the scourge of murders sapping the city — 199 last year, and 17 or so on the streets Campbell drove last week.Sometimes, Campbell and Minor join hands, bouncing slowly over the pothole-filled streets of their neighborhood. “Cover your children, Father God,” Minor said. “In the name of Jesus.”The car turned onto A.P. Tureaud Boulevard. “Hope is not in the dollar,” Campbell said. “Hope is in you, Christ Jesus.” The pair drove past people sitting on stoops, past Tony’s Historical Parakeet Restaurant and Bar, past the blighted houses and freshly rebuilt homes in neighborhoods undergoing checkerboard recoveries. In August, 2005, Hurricane Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and resulted in about 1,400 deaths.Campbell and Minor’s group consists of six women and one man. They are from different churches, bound together by an ad hoc prayer group that meets twice a month at Campbell’s house. This is strictly their project. They are among thousands of people unorganized, unsponsored, praying daily for the safety of New Orleans.Usually the people in Campbell’s group go solo. Sometimes it’s a special trip. But sometimes they pray while doing something else, like going out for groceries. The trips can be long or short. Each person prays however he or she is moved to. Campbell and her friends have been doing this for about six weeks.Across the city, thousands of Catholics formally pray for peace in the city at each Sunday Mass, reciting a special anti-crime petition at the request of Archbishop Gregory Aymond. St. Anna’s Episcopal Church keeps a tally of murders in the city on a huge white board outside the church building, to raise awareness and “name the victims.” Other clergy lead congregations in other ways, and run youth ministries, literacy programs, sports programs, anything to help tamp down crime.But Campbell and her friends have decided the most powerful thing they can do is drive the city’s streets and pray, as the community does its business, unaware, around them. “We got a problem, but we don’t know how to solve it,” Campbell insisted. “Well, we do,” she said, meaning herself, Minor and their friends. “We’re taking it to the Spirit.” Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Tampa, FL Submit a Press Release Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The first step in stopping this holocaust is prayer. What kept New Orleans alive after Katrina was not the Government, nor City Resources, nor politicians: it was the National Guard, and hundreds of Faith Based responders on grass roots levels that made pilgrimage to a city destroyed. They still come and we still need them. So too, the initial response from urban violence in NOLA can only effectively come from faith based responders located in the neighborhoods that we know and serve. We ARE the network of hope. We lack financial resources but we do not lack faith nor imagination. We can and are doing what government cannot or will not do effectively. I only hope that those with bounty and resources will support those who can well use them to save a generation of young people. We are effective first by prayer then by action. Comments are closed.

This project involves (for leisure use) the extension of an existing house, located in a quiet and surrounded by trees neighborhood in Brasilia-DF. The family (composed of a couple, three children and two dogs) loves to receive friends at home. They felt the need for a larger space, outside the main house, for social events.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaThereby, it was proposed an annex that values and respects the existing building, embracing its surroundings. It is practical construction for the everyday life, with modern and contemporary elements, consisting of simple materials, in neutral tones, which harmonize with each other and create coziness. A large metallic pergola covered with glass determines the main access of the annex, connecting it to the existing house. The social space is formed by the integration of the kitchen, living and dining rooms; sliding doors connect the house to the external garden and the varanda, which includes a hot tube.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Joana FrançaA central kitchen countertop built from reinforced concrete, assists the main uses of the space, including audio and video equipment; it structures a wood plank (6m long) table, which can comfortably be used as a table by twelve people at the same time.

Sparkes acknowledged that it was not “good for Kosovo’s image.” News News November 17, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News agency abandons reporter to her fate as she receives threats in run-up to election “Ever since my intervention at the news conference and the publication of my article, I have been getting a lot of very humiliating, threatening and offensive SMS messages from PDK supporters,” Shala said in her written statement, which Reporters Without Borders received. “I am being very clearly warned about what I may write.” “We fully support Shala, who has been very strangely punished for professional conduct that constitutes the very basis of journalism and needs, more than ever, to be welcomed in Kosovo,” Reporters Without Borders added. “We urge the Kosovar media to show their support for her by raising the issues she highlighted as often as possible with the Kosovar and international authorities.” The article that Shala wrote after the news conference was quickly posted on the KosovaPress website but was suddenly removed a few hours later. Shala said the news agency’s management valuated her questions at the news conference were “unprofessional,” “stupid” and “had nothing to do with the election campaign.” She added there was no alternative for her but to leave such a working environment. Reporters Without Borders urges all of the many international bodies that have a presence in Pristina to express their support for Shala and to convey their concern to the Kosovar authorities. European Union special envoy Pieter Cornelis Feith cannot allow journalists to be threatened and sanctioned for covering EULEX’s activities in a professional manner and for doing investigative reporting that is extremely necessary in the newly declared country.

The PDK leadership and Prime Minister Hashim Thaci’s acting government must publicly express their support for Shala and disown the threats. An investigation must also be opened with the aim of identifying those responsible for the SMS messages and ensuring they are severely punished.

Her treatment by the agency was totally unwarranted and clearly motivated by non-journalistic considerations. We urge the KosovaPress management to immediately return her in the agency and to support its journalists when they are threatened in this way.” News June 14, 2018 Find out more to go furtherlast_img read more
