Australian Capital Territory introduces 15% POC gambling tax

first_img The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) government has announced a new 15% point of consumption (POC) tax on gambling operators The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) government has announced a new 15% point of consumption (POC) tax on gambling operators.The tax will apply to net gambling revenue generated by companies through bets placed in the ACT, as well as wagers made by residents in the territory.The move follows a similar approach by various other territories such as South Australia, which has set betting operations tax at 15% for horse racing, sports betting and non-sport events.According to budget papers obtained by the Canberra Times newspaper, ACT expects to generate an additional Aus$2m (€1.3m/US$1.5m) a year through the new tax rate.“The introduction of this tax will bring the ACT into line with multiple other Australian jurisdictions which are also in the process of implementing point of consumption tax arrangements,” the papers read.Queensland and Western Australia are also due to introduce 15% tax rates, but Victoria last month announced plans for a new rate of just 8% for online betting agencies.Related article: Victoria plans 8% online betting tax Casino & games Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Oceania Australia AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Australian Capital Territory introduces 15% POC gambling tax Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops 5th June 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Sports bettinglast_img read more

Do you have a spare £2k you’re looking to invest in FTSE 100 stocks? The global financial markets are experiencing some extreme fluctuations as geopolitical tensions rise and the pandemic fails to subside.This throws up a selection of bargain buys and shines a spotlight on resilient shares that can go the distance. The FTSE 100 is a great place to shop when looking for viable stocks for your ISA. 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…There are many strategies available to stock market investing. But I think the safest way for beginners to start is with a long-term value investing strategy. Attempting to get rich quick by cashing in on short-term price spikes is the quickest way to get burnt.Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has always advocated a long-term approach to investing, and I think newcomers would do well to heed his advice. Dividend shares that offer stability and a regular income are among the best stocks to buy for this strategy.If I was to invest in the FTSE 100 with £2k today, I would consider adding the following picks to a Stocks and Share ISA.A defensive FTSE 100 dividend stockThe FTSE 100 features well-established companies with a proven track record and often a global presence. National Grid (LSE:NG) is one such business. It provides power to the UK and the USA, ensuring it remains in demand no matter what state the financial markets are in.This £31bn multinational stock offers investors a dividend yield of 5.4%, its earnings per share are 36p, and price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) is 24 today. It’s expanding its asset base in the UK and the US and actively working towards a clean energy future.Ofgem recently proposed changes to overhaul the energy networks in its bid to deliver emissions-free energy. This could be detrimental to National Grid’s own clean energy ambitions if it limits the profits it can make.Globally, businesses remain reliant on utilities to provide them with their power. This puts National Grid in a defensive position. Operating under government regulations also gives shareholders additional confidence. The Ofgem proposals do add an element of risk to the National Grid share price. But as a long-term income buy, I think this is a good stock for those looking to invest in the FTSE 100. A financially stable stockA second FTSE 100 dividend stock I like the look of is M&G (LSE:MNG). The UK insurance and asset management business is a relatively new listing on the lead index after separating from its parent company Prudential in October 2019.Its share price has soared 104% since the March market crash. It’s now offering a dividend yield of 8.8% at today’s price. This £4bn company has dividend cover of 2.7 times, which gives shareholders confidence the dividend will remain in place. It’s also a stock with growth potential as it’s acquiring Ascentric from Royal London. This is a wealth management platform for UK independent financial advisers. Ascentric brings £14bn of assets under administration to M&G, along with potentially lucrative relationships with over 1,500 advisory firms and their 90,000 customers. It’s also launched a hostile bid for UK Mortgages, which could bring complementary assets into its fund.M&G has a P/E of 4 and earnings per share are 43p. Overall, M&G has remained financially strong throughout the pandemic and looks a good addition to an income investor’s portfolio. 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.

Wallabies drop to lowest ever ranking as Wales climb – Results and Rankings recap

first_imgTuesday Mar 17, 2015 Wallabies drop to lowest ever ranking as Wales climb – Results and Rankings recap The Wallabies have dropped down to sixth place on the World Rugby Rankings as Wales moved up above them with victory over Ireland in Cardiff. It was a busy weekend of international rugby, with the Six Nations, European Nations Cup, Women’s Six Nations and Under-20 Six Nations all taking place. Wales’ 23-16 victory over Ireland has set up a thrilling climax to the Championship, as England beat Scotland 25-13 at Twickenham, so all three sides are tied at the top of the table on six points.Australia, who haven’t played a game since November, have dropped to their lowest ever position since the (IRB) World Rugby Rankings were introduced in October 2003.Ireland remain at third, the highest of the northern hemisphere nations, despite the loss.England’s win over Scotland had no impact on their rating due to Scotland being place well below them, at number 10, on the rankings. There was also a less than ten points margin, which comes into effect. France beat Italy 29-0 in Rome and have improved their rating by over a point, but remain in seventh place, while Italy stay in 14th.View the Full World RankingsEuropean Nations Cup The four matches that took place over the weekend did have some impact, with Belgium the biggest movers of the last seven days after their 17-14 win over Division 1B leaders Moldova. That victory lifts Belgium two places to 27th – above Zimbabwe and Hong Kong – and leaves Moldova in 30th, albeit much closer now to Kenya below.The only other positional change came as a result of Portugal’s 19-8 loss to Spain on home soil. The Portuguese have slipped one place to 23rd with RWC 2015 bound Namibia the beneficiaries. Spain remain 21st after the Division 1A victory in the Iberian derby.Georgia ran out 33-0 winners over 19th-ranked Russia in Tbilisi, but only improved their rating by less than a tenth. They are still closer to Italy above them in 14th than they began the weekend after the Azzurri lost to France.Romania had to dig deep to edge Germany 17-12 in Heidelberg, a result which resulted in a gain of less than a tenth to leave them stationary in 17th.Below, a quick recap of results and rankings from the weekend of international rugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

COVID can be defeated Cuba, China, Venezuela and Vietnam lead the way

first_imgAs the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage uncontrollably in the U.S., it must be understood that it doesn’t have to be this way. Many countries around the world, especially those building socialism, have been able to effectively combat the pandemic, using the tools of a planned economy and robust national health care systems to prioritize the health of their populations.  On Aug. 20, Workers World Party held a webinar entitled “COVID can be defeated: Cuba, China, Venezuela and Vietnam lead the way.” This event brought together organizer and solidarity activist perspectives from these countries, which are leading the way globally in combating the virus.In those countries, governmental policies have involved and empowered the workers to prevent the novel coronavirus from reaching the pandemic conditions which are occurring in the U.S., and throughout much of the rest of the capitalist world.  Speakers included Lee Siu Hin, of the China U.S. Solidarity Network and National Immigrant Solidarity Network, who discussed China’s highly successful actions to combat the disease. Dr. Rosemari Mealy, of the N.Y.-Jersey Cuba Si Coalition,  and a board member of IFCO/Pastors for Peace, raised the socialist island’s effective measures to control the virus.  William Camacaro, representing the Bolivarian Circle Venezuela Solidarity, explained the impact of COVID-19 on the country and the government’s response.   And  Dr. Ngô Thanh Nhàn, of the Viêt Solidarity and Action Network and Vietnam Agent Orange Relief and Responsibility Campaign, told of that country’s public health campaign to treat and control the virus.  Under 30 lives have been lost there from the illness.As of Aug. 24, the U.S. has led the world with the highest rate of infections and highest death count because the health — and very lives — of workers, especially oppressed people, are secondary to profits being made for the ruling class. More than 178,000 people have died.  Tens of millions of workers have lost their jobs, with an untold number of renters facing evictions. Meanwhile, the wealth of U.S. billionaires has grown to an astounding $637 billion during the pandemic! The cruelty of capitalism is on full display during this major health crisis.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Local restaurants are cranking out thousands and thousands of them. At Mijares, however, tamales rock year-round.But it’s at Christmas time when the molino stone grinder really sees some action. Special flavors dominate the holidays. This year there’s a chicken mole tamale, with the complex, savory flavor of chocolate mixed with garlic, a host of spices and a variety of chilies. If that isn’t enough tamale for you, there is also a sweet tamale made with cinnamon and fruit.For the purists, there’s a festive pork tamale with red chile, a chicken and vegetable tamale, and, for those who like food that bites back when bitten into, a roasted poblano chile and cheese tamale.Familia is the reason for Mijares’ unique tamales. Mijares started life in 1920 as a tamale and tortilla factory on South Fair Oaks. Jesucita Mijares used a molino to turn corn kernels into masa (dough). Family lore has it that the Mijares matriarch actually carried her stone grinder with her as she fled the Mexican Revolution.Jesucita Mijares eventually made a new home in Pasadena, and she introduced the Red New Mexican Chile Pork Tamale, with Christmas-colored chilies from Hatch, New Mexico, to an appreciative and hungry Southern California audience.Today, Mijares, under the guidance of R-lene De Lang, Jesucita Mijares’ granddaughter, eschews modern machinery in favor of the molino and passes up flours in favor of traditional masa. The red chile tamale enjoyed at Mijares today, is made much the way Jesucita Mijares did it 93 years ago–with one key difference. The restaurant stopped using lard 25 years ago, so its tamales are healthful, and very, very light. All the better to save room for that dessert tamale.No time for dinner? Tamales are available onsite by the dozen.Mijares is at 145 Palmetto Drive, Pasadena, and 1806 East Washington Street, Pasadena. (626) 794-6674.

Barton, the John G. Kirkwood and Arthur A. Noyes Professor of Chemistry and Norman Davidson Leadership Chair of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, has been awarded the 2019 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Award in Chemical Sciences. The award, which is presented annually “to honor innovative research in the chemical sciences that contributes to a better understanding of the natural sciences and to the benefit of humanity,” according to the NAS website, was first given to the late Caltech professor and Nobel laureate Linus Pauling in 1979.“It’s really a very special honor, and especially so because it honors the extraordinary work of my students and co-workers, both past and present,” says Barton of receiving the award.Barton’s research is important for understanding how DNA is damaged, repaired, and replicated within the cell. She demonstrated, in the early 1990s, that DNA can act like an electrical wire to transport electrical charges over long distances, and that this mechanism can be used by a cell to locate and repair potentially harmful mutations to DNA. Her team has also shown that this wire-like property of DNA may be linked to cancer and that it plays a role in DNA replication. Barton and her colleagues have also designed metal complexes that recognize sites within DNA. These metal complexes have been used as tools to elucidate this DNA chemistry as well as in the development of novel chemotherapy drugs.Barton has received numerous awards, including the the 2015 Priestley Medal from theAmerican Chemical Society’s (ACS); ACS’s Award in Pure Chemistry, a MacArthur Fellowship, the National Science Foundation’s Alan T. Waterman Award, and the National Medal of Science. Barton is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, the National Academy of Sciences, and the National Academy of Medicine.More about the NAS Award in Chemical Sciences is online at Top of the News People Local Professor Wins National Academy of Sciences Prize By WHITNEY CLAVIN Published on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 | 12:04 pm First Heatwave Expected Next Week Subscribe Herbeauty8 Celebrities People Don’t Love AnymoreHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty15 Countries Where Men Have Difficulties Finding A WifeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFollow This Summer Most Popular Celeb Beauty TrendHerbeautyHerbeauty Make a commentlast_img read more
