Delaware to take first sports bets

This followed a failed experiment with the format in 1976.Today’s expansion will allow single-game wagering on professional baseball, football, hockey, basketball and other sports. Until today, this has only been legal in Nevada.Stadium, acquired by Ladbrokes in 2012 before its merger with Coral and subsequent acquistion by GVC, already provides this software in 16 of the 20 licensed sportsbooks in the state of Nevada. GVC said today that Stadium had capacity to extend this to more than 100 other licensed locations. Adam Greenblatt, director of development and corporate strategy at GVC, said: “We are delighted to be up-and-running as the first – and currently only – provider with a market ready solution for our partners in the new regulatory environment. “As legislation evolves in the post-PASPA world, having the capability and flexibility to be able to get to market fast, with proven and compliant technology, is a key advantage for us. “This small but important step on the pathway of regulatory reform in the US sports betting and igaming market, shows the preparedness of GVC to take an active part in the development of the sector. “We believe the group’s proprietary, omni-channel technology coupled with our extensive US and international operating experience and trading expertise, positions us for long-term success.”Delware was among the first three US states to fully legalise and regulate igaming back in 2012. The programme is run by the state lottery and powered by a vendor collaboration between 888 and Scientific Games/WMS.The state’s 888-powered poker sites, including WSOP, began pooling liquidity with Nevada’s in March 2015. This was extended last month to include New Jersey, following October 2017’s Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA).Related article: Delaware legalises sports bettinglast_img read more

Forget Cash ISAs, Bitcoin and gold. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 shares to get rich and retire early

first_imgForget Cash ISAs, Bitcoin and gold. I’d buy bargain FTSE 100 shares to get rich and retire early Here are some tips to get you started. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Harvey Jones | Saturday, 11th July, 2020 | More on: VOD Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images Every investor should build a balanced portfolio containing different assets classes, but I think you should use most of your long-term wealth to buy bargain FTSE 100 shares.I would keep only a small proportion of my wealth in rival assets such as Cash ISAs, Bitcoin, and gold. History shows that stock markets beat almost every rival over the long run. If you want to get rich and retire early, this is where I’d start. 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…When you buy equities, you are investing in real life companies that produce goods and services people need and want to buy. After the Covid-19 crash, many of these companies are in trouble. Others are genuine FTSE 100 bargains, good companies whose share prices have plunged along with the bad. This is where your opportunities lie right now.Cash ISAs, Bitcoin, and gold optionsYou aren’t investing in the real world when you trade Bitcoin. The virtual currency has almost no practical uses. Primarily, it is a speculative tool to keep day traders amused. Until they start losing real money, that is. Then it’s not so amusing.Crypto-currencies are a play on volatility. Spot markets can be volatile too, but you can make that work in your favour. At the Motley Fool, we urge investors to buy FTSE 100 shares when they are trading at bargain prices, say, after a stock market crash. If you plan to hold them for the long term, you will benefit when markets recover, as they always do in the longer run.Cash is a safe haven from volatility, but there’s a catch. Easy access savings accounts destroy the value of your money. They now pay just 0.25% on average, half today’s inflation rate. It means your money is eroding in real terms.Everybody needs a bit of cash on easy access for emergencies, but your the money you are building into long-term wealth should go into equities. I’d start by buying FTSE 100 shares, which are particularly attractive when available at bargain prices, like today.The stock market crash in March saw another rush into gold as a store of value. As I write this, the gold price stands at just over $1,800 an ounce, a level last seen in 2012. If it rises much more, it could top its all-time high.Bargain FTSE 100 shares for meI have a natural aversion to investing at the top of the market. You have missed most of the gains, and are vulnerable to a crash.That is why I’m favouring bargain FTSE 100 shares right now. Despite the recovery, they are still down 20% from their pre-pandemic highs. If we get another crash, my advice would be the same, buy more shares at the new, lower price. Then hold them for the long term, and reinvest your dividends for growth.You can reduce the risk by targeting companies with strong balance sheets, steady revenues, minimal debts, and strong competitive ‘moats’ against rival firms. Many still pay attractive dividend yields, something you won’t get from Bitcoin or gold.That’s why my money is going into bargain FTSE 100 shares today. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

With sensitivity to the site’s inherent strengths, the design embraces the preservation and integration of the established tree allowing it to remain the dominate feature on the property.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe covered outdoor spaces are literally built around the tree, encapsulating and framing the trunk. The timber-clad columns recede into the background and a fine line of glazing opens to the densely planted side yard for continuous access to the natural environment from within the interior spaces.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe upper level sits in the branches of the tree floating above the bottom structure to provide a unique treetop setting overlooking views to the Sydney Harbour. The roof is treated in a considered stone so that it is more like landscaping adorned with the scattering of fallen leaves.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkePreservation of the tree required the structure to be physically light. Built on a steeply sloping site, the expansive addition made from thin concrete includes an underground parking garage and a large suspended pool, without damaging the tree’s root system. The suspended platform also provides a generous planted area creating obscured views of the house.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeThe addition is a soft integration creating strong architectural expression that blends into its surroundings and preserves the fabric of the original building.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Berlage Archive: Elia Zenghelis (2009)Architecture NewsOrandajima House Community Centre / Martin van der Linden + Ayumu Ota + Yuko KawakitaSelected Projects Share Houses “COPY” Architects: B.E Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Hopetoun Residence / B.E Architecture “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Hopetoun Residence / B.E ArchitectureSave this projectSaveHopetoun Residence / B.E Architecture CopyAbout this officeB.E ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVaucluseHousesAustraliaPublished on August 24, 2014Cite: “Hopetoun Residence / B.E Architecture” 24 Aug 2014.

What’s Keeping Foreclosures at Bay?

first_img Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Cape Cod Foreclosure Previous: KeyBank Partners with BlackKnight, Becomes EnterpriseClient Next: LoanCare Renews Black Knight Contract  Print This Post The tiny state of Massachusetts, particularly around Cape Cod, could be a solid microcosm for the state of foreclosures in late 2017. A recent report by the Cape Cod Times found that a sellers’ market on the island has driven foreclosure activity down for the first time in four years.According to the Boston-based Warren Group, foreclosure petitions in June dropped 20 percent compared to the year earlier. In Barnstable County, home of Cape Cod, petitions dropped 11 percent in the first half of 2017, compared to the first half of 2016. Statewide, petitions filed through June and were down 12.6 percent compared to a year ago.These numbers could be the offshoot of a market in high demand and with high sales prices. According to the Cape Cod and the Islands Association of Realtors, the median price of single-family homes hit $400,000 on Cape Cod. That’s up from $383,000 a year earlier, although down from May’s $417,000.Still, sales are moving quickly, creating a high-octane seller’s market that naturally circumvents foreclosure petitions: houses are selling so fast, owners are able to offload distressed properties without having to go to the courts, the Times reported.While petitions on Cape Cod in 2017 are not at the record lows they hit in 2013, they are, according to the Times, still far lower than their 2010 peak. It turns out, until now, 2013 was the only post-recession year when foreclosure petitions went down. The difference is that in 2013, the market was still depressed and banks had already gobbled up a lot of distressed properties.Timothy Warren Jr., CEO of the Warren Group, told the Times that Barnstable County still has plenty of foreclosures on the books, but the Warren Group also found that foreclosure auctions dropped on both a state and local level by 18 percent. However, the filing of foreclosure deeds was up statewide nearly 7 percent in the state and up 300 percent on the Cape‒‒ a sign, the Times wrote, “that the backlog of auctions was continuing to be resolved.”One of the reasons distressed properties are attractive, the article stated, was that on the Cape in particular, homes that would otherwise be foreclosed are essentially move-in ready.
