CPI remains at 3.1pc

first_img Consumer price inflation held steady in August, after unexpectedly strong rises in airfares, clothes and food prices offset falling fuel costs, official data showed.The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said consumer price inflation came in at 3.1 per cent last month in contrast to economists’ expectations for a fall to 2.9 per cent. On the month, inflation jumped by 0.5 per cent, compared to a 0.2 per cent fall in July and forecasts for a 0.3 per cent increase.The largest upward effect on CPI came from air transport, with fares rising at their fastest pace for a month of August on record. Clothing and footwear prices saw their sharpest August rise since 2001, with a big impact from the cost of women’s outerwear at the start of the autumn season.Seasonal discounting occurred earlier in 2010 than in previous years, adding to the upward pressure in August.Food prices rose at their fastest annual pace since July 2009, with strong monthly rises in the cost of bread, cereals and vegetables.Producer price data earlier this month showed sharp increases in the cost of wheat due to drought in Russia pushing up global commodity prices.The alternate retail price index measure, which has a longer history and includes more housing costs, was also higher than expected in August. The measure fell to 4.7 per cent from 4.8 per cent, against expectations of a drop to 4.6 per cent.The figures are likely to be a concern to the Bank of England, which has blamed the rise of inflation above its two per cent target largely on one-off factors such as sterling weakness and a rise in value-added tax at the start of the year.Bank Governor Mervyn King had to write a public letter last month explaining why inflation had persisted above three per cent. New member of the Monetary Policy Committee Martin Weale faces a hearing before legislators later.Howard Archer of global Insight said: “Consumer price inflation disappointingly only held steady at 3.1 per cent in August, thereby bringing at least a temporary end to the gradual downward trend from the peak of 3.7 per cent in April.” John Dunne Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 14 September 2010 4:41 am whatsapp CPI remains at 3.1pc Share whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople-TodayWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This PhotoPeople-Today Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Spanish Ministry to ramp up player protection efforts in 2021

first_imgLegislation to implement the policies is being developed alongside the nation’s Responsible Gambling Advisory Council, which is comprised of lawmakers, operators, academics and civil servants. The integration of these registers to allow for national self-exclusion is considered a key priority for 2021. It was then announced that sports sponsorship by gambling operators must end at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season, with the Ministry for Consumer Affairs writing to all teams in the country’s top-tier football league in October to inform them of this. Regulations introduced in February saw gambling advertising on radio and television limited to between the hours of 1:00AM and 5:00AM, with additional restrictions on online and direct advertising subsequently brought forward in April. Spain’s Ministry for Consumer Affairs has set out its priorities to further tighten gambling regulations in the coming year, following significant changes in 2020. This will see the regulator enforce advertising restrictions implemented late last year, as well as changes to regulatory fees for licensees. The Ministry for Consumer Affairs’ accountability report also includes a commitment to the integration of separate self-exclusion registers, following an agreement between the nation’s 17 autonomous communities in September last year. “This will mean, as has happened in other countries where similar measures were adopted, the foreseeable increase in the activity of unlicensed operators, which will have dire consequences in terms of the protection of vulnerable groups,” it said. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Currently, self-exclusion requests are registered within each local community, with an additional national register administered by the state’s gambling regulator, Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ). Tags: Spain DGOJ Ministry for Consumer Affairs Spanish Ministry to ramp up player protection efforts in 2021 Regions: Southern Europe Spain These regulations were approved by royal decree and came into force on 3 November, causing industry association Jdigital to argue that the measures would lead to an increase in illegal gambling.center_img Garzón said in December that the introduction of new measures for action, intervention, control, prevention, awareness raising and player safeguarding would be a key priority for 2021. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter While April’s restrictions were introduced as temporary measures in response to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, they were subsequently adopted into permanent regulations that were submitted to the European Commission for approval in July, alongside further restrictions to prohibit the use of promotional bonuses. Regulation A report published in December by Spain’s Ministry of Health claimed that an estimated 670,000 citizens aged between 15 and 64 either had or were at risk of developing gambling problems, despite a decline in the prevalence of disordered play. It will also look to finalise the consolidation of each of the country’s autonomous regions’ self-exclusion registers, as well as having new social responsibility controls expanded to cover certain video games. 6th January 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Compliance Legal Regulation Marketing regulation Responsible gambling Advertising restrictions for the industry were announced in January 2020, including regulations on the advertising of gambling and online gambling at the state level, “similar to that of tobacco products”. The Ministry also committed to promoting uniform regulations for land-based gambling, with a plan to bring forward a consensus proposal to submit to the nation’s Gaming Policy Council. In-person gambling was found to be much more prevalent than online, with 63.6% of the population under 64 years old playing this way in 2019, compared to just 6.7% of the population who had played online.

Martin Guptill returned to form with a sensational knock while James Neesham slammed 45 off 16 balls before Stoinis and Daniel almost got Australia over the line. Neesham dismissed both Stoinis and Daniel in the final over to help New Zealand secure a win in the second T20I. For the Kiwis, Mitchell Santner picked four, Neesham struck two while Tim Southee and Ish Sodhi picked a wicket each.Chasing a mammoth 220, Australia got off to a good start as the visitors smashed 33 runs from the first three overs. But Southee removed Matthew Wade in the fourth over to put a break on Australia’s chase.But the visitors continued to bat freely and seven overs into the chase, Australia was 64/1 before Sodhi dismissed skipper Finch on the last ball of the eight over.After the Finch’s dismissal, Australia kept losing wickets at regular intervals and was soon found reeling at 113/6 before Stoinis and Daniel came out firing on cylinders.

New Zealand scored 45 runs in the first six overs with Guptill alone accounting for 37 of those. Guptill continued his scintillating batting and notched up his half-century in just 27 balls. A few blistering shots and the right-handed batsman moved to 70 off 37 balls as New Zealand went past the 100-run mark in the 11 overs.Meanwhile, skipper Kane Williamson played the role of a second fiddle but Gutpill’s flurry of boundaries brought up the 100-run partnership for New Zealand. Daniel Sams provided Australia the second breakthrough as Guptill fell three runs short of his century in the 15th overIn the next over, Adam Zampa dismissed Williamson but James Neesham smashed three sixes from his first four balls to steer New Zealand to a mammoth total despite wickets falling at the other end.With Guptill’s 97 (50) and Neesham’s quickfire 45* (16), New Zealand ended the innings with 219 runs in the allotted 20 overs.Brief Scores: New Zealand 219/7 (Martin Guptill 97, James Neesham 45*; Kane Richardson 3-43); Australia 215/8 (Marcus Stoinis 78, Daniel Sams 41; Mitchell Santner 4-31) Cricket Glenn Maxwellc IS Sodhi b Mitchell Santner350060.00 Football Trent Boult403007.50 Cricket Freight & Shipping Quotes | Search AdsResearch & Compare Freight & Shipping QuotesEnjoy Affordable Freight & Shipping Services With These Service ProvidersFreight & Shipping Quotes | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can’t Look Away FromDaily Funny|SponsoredSponsoredPost FunThese Twins Were Named “Most Beautiful In The World,” Wait Until You See Them TodayPost Fun|SponsoredSponsoredYourBump15 Actors That Hollywood Banned For LifeYourBump|SponsoredSponsoredSenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStory|SponsoredSponsored Kane Richardson4043310.75 NZ vs AUS 2nd T20 Highlights: Neesham, Guptill stars as New Zealand beat Australia by 4 runs in 2nd T20 Kyle JamiesonNot out00000.00 Extra8 (b 0, w 7, nb 1, lb 0) Tim Seifert (WK)c AJ Finch b KW Richardson360050.00 Yet To BatA Zampa Jimmy Neesham1010210.00 Ashton Agarc DP Conway b Mitchell Santner01000.00 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Formula 1 Tim Southeerunout (MS Wade / DR Sams)6310200.00 Cricket Cricket WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Start delayed due to rain, SA lead by 149 runs – Follow Live Updates Cricket Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Ish Sodhi3041113.67 BCCI to form committee to take call on compensating domestic cricketers BatsmenRB4S6SSR Kyle Jamieson4056014.00 Wimbledon 2021 LIVE streaming: When, where and how to watch year’s third Grand Slam’ in you country, India Latest Sports News New Zealand vs Australia 2nd T20 LIVE Score: https://www.insidesport.co/sport-matches?field=entity_cricket&id=47036&widget=match_centerFollow Live Updates on InsideSport.coEarlier Australia won the toss and opted to field first.

Lions 2013: The need for tactical change in the second Test: Attack

first_imgBritish and Irish Lions player’s Alun Wyn Jones (L) and Alex Corbisiero (R) try to push the ball forward against Australia during their rugby union match at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on June 22, 2013. British and Irish Lions won the match 23-21. AFP PHOTO/ Patrick HAMILTONIMAGE RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – STRICTLY NO COMMERCIAL USE (Photo credit should read PATRICK HAMILTON/AFP/Getty Images) Smart attack: Alex Cuthbert scored a great try thanks to quick ball and brilliant decoy running lines for his centresBy Alan DymockTHE DIFFICULT second Test is coming and both teams have finalised their lineups. The Wallabies have swapped out injured players, while the British and Irish Lions have made five changes.Warren Gatland himself said: “I don’t know about not changing a winning side; it is about picking the best team to do the job for us.” He is hinting at tactical reasons for the cutting and pasting of his team sheet. Looking back at the first Test footage, he certainly has reasons to change.AttackDiscounting a few moments of individual brilliance by George North, the Lions could always pry more space out of the Wallabies.A moment of individual brilliance: George North scores a tryHowever, looking at the first Test, there was an element of fear in the Australian defence whenever the Lions had a lineout in their final third. In fact, 22 minutes in, James Horwill took a captain’s decision to come into the Lions driving lineout from the side and give away a penalty. Seven minutes later, again in their own third, the Lions patiently built a drive and Michael Hooper swam through, trying to knock limbs out of the way. North almost scored a second try once that ball was recycled – he was denied by his own funny bone – but the referee was already playing advantage for the maul infringement.Australia are scared of the driving maul.What Australia do not fear, however, is the Lions’ sixth phase of attack. The aimless kicking of Mike Phillips was one of the reasons he has been dropped for this Test, as well as a niggling knee complaint, and Ben Youngs’ mindless hoof in the 66th minute in the first Test eventually found it’s way to Kurtley Beale who stepped inside the Lions kick chase and round Richard Hibbard who was not as fast or as close to Sam Warburton as he would have liked, and the full-back broke through. opportunities like this come when there is no momentum, the Lions rack up the phases and do not find touch.Another example of late-phase limpness was shown in the second-half. After 63 minutes Mako Vunipola nicely evaded a no-arm tackle from Wycliff Palu before Jamie Heaslip did well to avoid hits as he slogged up the park on his own. That led to Alex Cuthbert getting the ball, but going to ground too early. Benn Robinson was penalised for getting his foot in and going for the ball when the ruck had formed, but by going to ground too early Cuthbert had ensured that the penalty kick was the only option for the Lions, rather than using much quicker ball. The Lions must maintain the level of movement that led to their second try and continue to power players through the initial contact. There will be more lineouts but there will also be more need to generate quick ball from those lineouts. Staying on feet and laying ball on a plate can only improve the Lions chances of a series victory.Check out our tactical explanation of why change was needed in defence, here. This contrasted poorly with Cuthbert’s own try. It stemmed from a recycled lineout. Tom Youngs carried strongly and Alun Wyn Jones and Paul O’Connell grabbed him and fired him through tackles. With such quick ball Jonny Sexton was able to set his back line and synchronise running lines.Brian O’Driscoll had time to run up to the defensive line incredibly flat, with a hint of inside drift. Behind him, Jonathan Davies ran a smart outside angle, heading towards the touchline and pulling defender with him. Even deeper behind Davies was Cuthbert and as he got to the defence he was able to burst through with Sexton’s pass. After that it was a race to the try-line and the winger was never going to miss out.Pushing each other: More quick ball is needed a few phases inThere were suspicions of crossing, but Cuthbert was so deep behind O’Driscoll that the try was always going to stand and he saw his way past a hapless Beale and stretching Will Genia with ease.When the game was tight, though, it was the zip from Youngs that ensured the Lions could shift their attack while the Wallabies chased. Then Dan Lydiate was introduced and suddenly it was a case of sitting in and hoping to see the Test out.Cuthbert has been replaced by a man with better ability to field kicks and experience at centre. This is no slight on Cuthbert who will see  action from the bench in the second Test. Lydiate also starts so as to shore up the defence and allow Warren Gatland to change tact if the Lions have to chase the game. They have a reserve pack of explosives.Meanwhile, Ben Youngs offers quicker use of ball and will be given the remit to find touch when the phases drag on.

Senator Nelson files bill to expand solar industry in Florida

Bill Nelson (D-FL) filed legislation today designed to drastically boost investment in renewable sources of energy, such as solar. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here 1 COMMENTcenter_img James1958 Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here If approved, Nelson’s legislation would make it easier for banks to invest in renewable energy companies by allowing them to own a larger share of such companies. It would also make it easier for banks to provide financing to homeowners looking to install solar panels on residential rooftops.Senator Bill Nelson.Under current law, banks are prohibited from owning more than five percent of a non-financial company – including those that produce renewable energy. Nelson’s bill would encourage banks to invest more in renewable energy companies by allowing them to own up to 20 percent of a company that’s engaged solely in producing or storing renewable energy.“Florida is the nation’s Sunshine State but ranks twelfth when it comes to solar production,” Nelson said. “That needs to change. This bill will make it easier for homeowners to invest in their own solar installations while, at the same time, making it easier for larger renewable energy companies to access the capital they need to expand and create more jobs in Florida.”Proponents of the plan argue that by allowing banks to invest more in renewable energy companies, Nelson’s bill makes more capital available to renewable energy companies, which will make it easier for them to expand and create more jobs.In addition to increasing investment in renewable energy companies, Nelson’s bill would also make it easier for banks to provide financing to homeowners looking to install solar panels on their own residential rooftops.One of the greatest barriers currently preventing homeowners from installing solar panels on their own rooftops is the initial, upfront cost. A 2016 Pew Research Center study found that 40 percent of homeowners have given serious thought to adding solar panels to their own roofs.Despite the potential demand, very few banks offer financing to homeowners seeking to add solar panels to their own roofs because they either don’t know how to underwrite such a loan, or they are afraid of penalties if they get it wrong.Nelson’s bill would make it easier for banks to offer consumers the financing they need for such projects by directing the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) to create uniform underwriting standards that banks can use to offer such loans to consumers.The renewable energy industry employs more American workers than both the coal and natural gas industries combined. According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, 547,000 Americans work in the renewable energy sector compared to 160,000 in the coal industry, and 362,000 in the natural gas industry.Of the more than half a million people who work in the renewable energy industry, fewer than 15,000 work in Florida. In fact, Florida currently ranks twelfth in the nation for solar energy production – trailing behind states such as California, Texas and North Carolina.According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average household in Florida spends $132.16 per month on electricity, almost 16 percent more than the national average. By helping to make financing more available, Nelson’s legislation would make it easier for consumers to install their own solar rooftop installations to reduce their annual energy costs. December 6, 2017 at 5:53 am Wonder how much he is being paid to push this bill, he has never done anything for Florida that he didn’t profit from.
