Potash also employs Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital Markets as brokers.BHP’s move is a blow for BoAML, which has served as BHP’s corporate broker for five years, including in the run-up to the $39bn (£25.1bn) bid for Potash. The FTSE 100 miner will keep Citigroup on as a broker.BHP has been criticised since the failure of its bid by some who say it was inevitable that Canada would block any attempted foreign takeover of the fertiliser company. Instead, BHP has said that it will use some of its amassed capital to complete a formerly suspended $13bn share buy-back.Bank of America Merrill Lynch refused to comment.

In this week’s diary we cast a bleary eye over Denise Coates’ grand designs, a bet that plumbs the depths, a bit of social subterfuge and the industry’s great sacrifice.Grand designs Denise Coates has managed to remain pretty enigmatic despite her vast wealth. She does not speak to the press or make public appearances and still lives in the North-West, where the Bet365 Empire begun and remains headquartered. However, Ms Coates has started to ruffle feathers around the Cheshire country estate she calls home. The Bet365 boss has carved out a 52-acre plot by purchasing surrounding properties at sums the owners could not refuse and intends to build an enormous glass house designed by none other than Norman Foster. The Times went into detail on the plans this week. Mr Foster does not take on private residential gigs – his firm is behind some of the most iconic buildings in the world, including the glass dome at the British Museum and London’s City Hall. His engagement on this project reinforces one thing we already knew about Denise Coates despite her low profile – when she wants something, she gets it!Loo-sing your mind We know times are tough for poker operators but they must be tough for poker pros too if the latest crazy prop bet is anything to go by. A relatively modest sum of $100,000 awaits poker player Rich Alati if he manages to spend 30 days locked in a dark bathroom with no light or contact with the outside world. The real kicker is that if he fails, he has to pay the same amount to fellow pro Rory Young, who came up with the bet. Apparently Alati was able to pre-order all sorts of nice food, but it’s being delivered to him in random intervals so he’s unable to tell how much time has passed. He also has lots of nice toiletry products but we’re not sure any amount of posh shower gel would compensate for that kind of torture. Apparently the bet has been in the making for many months while the pair agreed on terms, but Alati recently made it happen by saying he had to be in and out of the room before Christmas. He might not be much fun as a festive guest after that sort of psychological torture, especially if he loses. But on the plus side, he’ll probably smell quite nice. Shhh…. it’s a secret Diary wasn’t sure whether to be apprehensive or bemused when the team received an invitation to an ‘off the record drinks’ from a leading operator this week. Of course, we’re used to people telling us all sorts of stories about drunken adventures and spats with rivals then declaring that it’s “off the record” — although just for the record people you’re supposed to say that before you spill your guts, not afterwards (imagine how different the world would be today if Trump was able to take back every stupid thing he said?) but this is a new one to us. We’re not too sure what’s going to happen at these drinks, but for obvious reasons, we won’t be reporting back.Cutting off your nose to save your face Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone. Silence the pianos and with muffled drum Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.For lo, it has come to pass. UK gambling operators will no longer advertise during live sport. Ray Winstone’s giant disembodied head will no longer loom over half time punditry. Jeff Stelling, beloved for telling us that when the fun stops, stop, will, um, stop. Only it won’t. This might feel like a major sea-change, but ultimately it will hardly dent marketing budgets. Last month Regulus Partners estimated that TV ad spend accounted for around £234m of the total £1.56bn marketing spend by UK operators – around 15%. Sponsorship spend accounted for just £60m of industry marketing spend.The Diary isn’t saying the whistle to whistle ad ban a half-hearted move by the industry. But upon closer inspection it’s hard to shift the impression that this social responsibility move is more a bunch of flowers from the petrol station forecourt rather than a bouquet of lilies.That’s all for this week!

Casinos followed shortly behind on 1 July, alongside a resumption of contact sports contests. Tags: Belgian Gaming Commission In April, the Belgian government offered advice to its citizens on how to protect themselves from problem gambling while under lockdown. Email Address 19th October 2020 | By Conor Mulheir AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter It offered the advice after claiming that during the period of lockdown, more people than usual may access igaming services, and potentially suffer gambling-related harm. In addition, casinos, gambling halls and betting shops must remain closed between 11:30pm and 6:00am, and upon arrival, customers must register their details for contact tracing. Regions: Belgium It encouraged those who were experiencing gambling-related harm to self-exclude themselves from online operators, and encouraged anyone concerned about their gambling to contact the ‘SOS Jeux’ helpline and speak to an advisor about their problems. The sale of food and drink onsite is prohibited, and customers are also obliged to wear masks, a rule which has been in effect in all public places in Belgium since July. Amid rising novel coronavirus (Covid-19) cases, the Belgian government’s Consultation Committee has published a new decree stating that gaming venues in the country can now accommodate a maximum of 40 people.

3 Investment themes I’d buy into for 2021 and beyond James J. McCombie | Saturday, 9th January, 2021 James J. McCombie owns shares of Palace Capital plc. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Learning Technologies. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. There are three big investment themes that I am looking to invest in for 2021. These are in no particular order:Online shoppingRemote workingOnline securityI like these because they are important in their own right. But, they also reinforce each other. Spending more time online shopping increases the need for software solutions to keep safe online. Remote working means more days are spent at home, which makes scheduling deliveries from online shopping easier and boosting the need to secure laptops against hackers.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…I have identified one or two UK stocks or types of companies that I think are well-positioned to capitalise on each of the three investment themes.Ordering onlinePeople who might not have shopped online have, and those that already did have done it more during the pandemic. What’s more, there are and will be generations of people that have grown up having never known life without the Internet. For them, online ordering is a natural option, perhaps even the default one. Those people are filling up the UK’s quota of adults.I believe online shopping had around a 21% share of the UK’s retail market in 2019. It went up last year. I don’t think a 50% share is unreasonable in a decade. So, Ocado seems like a good online shopping play. It benefitted enormously from the shift to online shopping in the UK last year, and surveys suggest this will persist. Ocado is also selling its automated fulfilment centre technology to overseas retailers looking to scale up their online offerings.Investing in delivery and logistics companies would also be in keeping with an online shopping investment theme. Also, commercial real estate companies and trusts that own lots of warehousing in good locations might see demand for their properties rise in a world that increasingly shops online.Working remotelyPeople have been forced to work from home in the pandemic. When asked, many do not desire a return to a full five days in the office week. Employers are eyeing the benefits of an at least partially remote workforce. For one thing, if only a percentage of the total workforce is in at a particular time, you don’t need as big an office. That office might not have to be a single centrally located one in a big city but somewhere cheaper perhaps.Palace Capital is a REIT with a focus on commercial property in the UK’s regions. I think it might do well if a restructuring of the office landscape does happen and from the Tory government’s pledge (if realised) to level up the regions. Learning Technologies Group is a workplace digital learning provider that should benefit from the increased willingness to get things done remotely rather than in person. Online securitySpending more time online to shop, work, or learn means more time exposed to the Internet’s dangers. Avast, one of the world’s largest cybersecurity companies, is a UK share I have looked at before. It offers online security solutions for individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises. GB Group has data-driven solutions to help quickly validate and verify their customers’ and employees’ identity and location. If interactions are shifting from face to face to remote, then demand for ways to check entities are who they say they digitally should grow, to GB Group’s benefit. See all posts by James J.

Instead, 30 volunteers from the Diocese of Georgia spent the weekend clearing debris left by Hurricane Irma.The Rev. Alan Akridge, rector of St. Mark’s Church in nearby Brunswick, cuts a downed tree in front of the Chapel of Our Saviour at Honey Creek. Photo: Frank LogueThere were “five worksites focusing on yard and tree debris cleanup and a kitchen team working to feed everyone,” said executive director Dade Brantley. To give an idea of the scope of the clean-up, last year with Hurricane Matthew there were 23 trees down which equaled 100 metric tons of debris. This year, 67 trees were down with double the tonnage, he said.“It was grace, straight up grace” that there wasn’t more damage to buildings, Brantley said. He pointed toward the chapel and the remains of two trees which he said “grew up in tandem and died in tandem next to the chapel.”One could have hit the chapel but it didn’t. He pointed out similar examples at Jonnard Dormitory and the kitchen garden, trees that just missed landing on buildings.The Revival: Fearless Faith, Boundless Love has been rescheduled for Jan. 20 at Honey Creek. “Good planning, great vendor partnerships and a little bit of luck enabled us to identify an alternative day for the revival,” said Katie Willoughby, canon for administration. “We look forward to an exciting and spiritual event — now with a little cooler weather.” Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Hopkinsville, KY Featured Jobs & Calls Director of Music Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Collierville, TN Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis

The project for the House in Chamusca da Beira consists in the requalification of a small built aggregate in a rural estate and on its enlargement with the construction from scratch of a new small building, directly articulated with the exterior space. The former woodshed of the main house was redesigned to function as an entrance space (from where you can enter the new building) and to receive an autonomous wooden structure that encloses a toilet. In this space the traditional constructive systems were kept, like the monopitched roof laid on a traditional wooden structure, that is extended to function as a porch over a small courtyard. The demolition of a set of unqualified outbuildings (storage rooms and garage), which were lean to the wall that limits the courtyard, allowed to enhance its presence and to recover the original building character. This wall is crossed by a tunnel made of corten steel, that establishes the transition between the new room and the former woodshed.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe new construction was designed in a very close way to the preexisting constructions (the main house and the adjacent courtyard) but also with the natural landscape, with special attention payed to the proximity of a well and a set of orange trees. The new telluric volume – narrow, vertical and also with a mono-pitched roof – opens the house over the landscape, clearly communicating with it through the three big windows opened towards southwest. Unlike the rehabilitated spaces, where the materiality is recovered from the original, here the material options were made towards an affirmation of contemporaneity, with the use of concrete in the exterior walls and zinc in the roof.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessWOHA Unveils “Fragments of an Urban Future” for the 2016 Venice BiennaleArchitecture NewsBuilding on the Built: the Work of Jonathan Tuckey DesignArticles Share CopyAbout this officeJoão Mendes RibeiroOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChamuscaPortugalPublished on May 12, 2016Cite: “House in Chamusca Da Beira / João Mendes Ribeiro” 12 May 2016.

Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 Pinterest Local NewsBusiness TAGS TD Ameritrade Investor Movement Index: IMX Score Climbs Amidst January Volatility OMAHA, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 8, 2021– The Investor Movement Index® (IMX SM ) increased to 6.91 in January, up 10.38 percent from its December score of 6.26. The IMX is TD Ameritrade’s proprietary, behavior-based index, aggregating Main Street investor positions and activity to measure what investors actually were doing and how they were positioned in the markets. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210208005566/en/ TD Ameritrade January 2020 Investor Movement Index (Graphic: TD Ameritrade) The reading for the five-week period ending January 29, 2021 ranks “Moderate High” compared to historic averages. “In a month with so many major news stories, from government stimulus, to a change of power in D.C., to the start of earnings season and finishing with some unparalleled volatility in stocks such as GameStop (GME) and AMC Theatres (AMC), January marks the first time in almost a year where COVID was not the primary day to day story,” said JJ Kinahan, chief market strategist at TD Ameritrade. “The timing of the GME frenzy at the tail end of January was such that ultimately, the overall story of retail trading during the period–the story captured by this IMX report–is in fact one that’s much more closely married to typical market dynamics than recent weeks’ headlines might convey. As champions of the retail investor for 45 years and counting, we at TD Ameritrade are happy to see a swell in market engagement not only in recent weeks but over the last year. We encourage all clients, but particularly new clients, to take advantage of our education along with our entire ecosystem of cutting-edge platforms and exceptional service.” TD Ameritrade clients engaged in heavy trading among both GME and AMC primarily in the last week of the period, but remained relatively neutral on both stocks, with GME ending the period as slightly net bought. AMC was lightly purchased throughout the period, including early in January prior to the volatility ensuing. While the “short-squeeze” story dominated headlines late in the period, overall, equity markets were mixed during the January period. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite both increased, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average decreased, and all three indices reached all-time highs during the period before selling off in the final days and posting the largest daily decreases since October 2020. Equity markets headed lower on concerns over the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, with many investors questioning whether the slower-than-anticipated pace would impact the economic recovery as new variants of the virus appear around the globe. The Federal Reserve announced it would maintain its current economic policies and noted economic softness in recent weeks. In the January period, TD Ameritrade clients were once again net buyers overall and net buyers of equities. Some of the popular names bought during the period were:Apple Inc. (AAPL)AT&T Inc. (T)Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD)Fubotv Inc. (FUBO)Plug Power Inc. (PLUG) Although clients were net buyers of equities, they found some names to sell during the period, including:Moderna Inc. (MRNA)Pfizer Inc. (PFE)Intel Corp. (INTC)Best Buy Inc. (BBY)Teladoc Health Inc. (TDOC) About the IMX The IMX value is calculated based on a complex proprietary formula. Each month, TD Ameritrade pulls a sample from its client base of funded accounts, which includes all accounts that completed a trade in the past month. The holdings and positions of this statistically significant sample are evaluated to calculate individual scores, and the median of those scores represents the monthly IMX.
