The merger agreement was first signed in April, and Gamesys will be expected to present the document outlining the full details of the deal on or around 28 May – subject to legal approval.

In return, Bally’s will be expected to publish details of the share issue required to facilitate the share alternative made available to Gamesys shareholders on the same date, subject to approval from the Financial Conduct Authority. Bally’s first agreed upon a £2bn acquisition of Gamesys back in March, with the operator formerly known as Twin River since raising $671m via a share offering to help fund the deal. Both boards said the deal would help the combined business capitalise on the growing US market. Both companies posted positive financial results in the lead up to the takeover, with Gamesys recording a 27% revenue increase for Q1, and Bally’s posting revenue in excess of $185m in the same period.

Hotshot: Edinburgh back-row Luke Crosbie

first_img Capital gains: Edinburgh’s Luke Crosbie breaks against London Irish. Photo: Getty Images Get to know Luke Crosbie, who has been called into the Edinburgh set-up this season Age 20 (22 April 1997) Born Edinburgh Club Currie Country Scotland Position Back-rowWhen did you first play rugby? At five. Football is big in the area I’m from, but one day I was walking with my dad and we heard all this noise at Livingston rugby club. People were running into each other and I wanted to give it a shot. We went home, Dad gave them a call and I went along to training.Have you always played back-row? I started in the second row, but around U18s I moved to the back row. I’ve always been pretty quick for a forward.What do you like about the position? It’s better than putting your head between two front-rows! I enjoy it because you get more time on the ball. I try to accelerate aggressively through contact when carrying. I want to do the basics well – run hard with the ball and tackle hard.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREWhen did you first achieve Scotland honours? At U18. I wasn’t selected at U16 – I was competing against players from private schools who were getting more exposure to rugby. I kept training and pushing myself, then I played for Edinburgh U16 and got my first cap for Scotland U18. Last season I got a Stage Three academy contract – my first full-time contact – and played U20s. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS And you play for Currie… I’ve been at Currie since high school and worked my way up from the U16s to the first XV. I made my debut at 17, away at Hawick.This season I’m also training full-time with Edinburgh. I’m still signed with the academy but instead of training with them I’m training with the pros. I want to get as much exposure at Edinburgh as I can.What do you do away from rugby?I’m doing a degree in business management with marketing at Heriot-Watt University. They do a scholarship for athletes playing at a high level, so you can do your studies part-time. That helps me balance it with full-time training.RW Verdict: Crosbie has a balanced outlook but has impressed Richard Cockerill enough to be picked for Edinburgh – he made his debut as a sub against Zebre in the Pro14 in October. He could well earn a professional contract by the season’s end. TAGS: Edinburgh Rugby This article first appeared in the December 2017 issue of Rugby World.last_img read more

Farmer Organizations Urge Senators to Support Grassley-Donnelly Amendment

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Farmer Organizations Urge Senators to Support Grassley-Donnelly Amendment Farmer Organizations Urge Senators to Support Grassley-Donnelly Amendment Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 4, 2013 Joe DonnellyTop farmer and rancher organizations representing our nation’s livestock and poultry producers shared a letter with U.S. Senators in support of the Grassley-Donnelly amendment, Amendment #1011, that would protect farmers and ranchers  by prohibiting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from disclosing their private and confidential information to the public. Senators Grassley and Donnelly introduced the amendment following the EPA’s release of personal and private information in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made by environmental advocacy organizations. Highly sensitive information including names, phone numbers, and email addresses of the farmers and ranchers, their spouses, and employees on these farms or ranches was made available to the public. While the EPA has attempted to correct the error, this amendment to the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 would provide an additional safety net to farmers and ranchers across the country.  It would limit the EPA to disclosing information about farming operations only when all personally identifiable information is removed to prevent the identification of individual livestock and poultry producers and their families          . “It is unacceptable that the EPA released the personal contact information of over 80,000 livestock and poultry owners from across the nation, including many from Indiana. This blatant violation of privacy must not happen again,” said Donnelly. “I thank the many farmer and rancher organizations that support our effort, and I hope my colleagues will support our amendment when it comes up for a vote.” Over 104 groups have signed onto the letter advocating for the passage of this amendment, including three Indiana organizations: Indiana Beef Cattle Association, Indiana Pork, and Indiana State Poultry Association.

After the Report, Then What?

first_img Previous articleAg Groups Applaud Senate-Passed Immigration MeasureNext articleLivestock Groups Urge Repeal of RFS Gary Truitt SHARE Mike SilverAfter the market trades through the acreage numbers on the new crop and the stocks numbers on the old crop in the USDA reports to be released Friday morning, yield and crop condition will take center stage with most traders.  Already this week, many analysts have been downplaying the importance of the acreage figures and have been focusing on current crop conditions and weather outlooks. After the Report, Then What? Facebook Twitter Silver told HAT that disparity is going to add volatility to the market as we move through crop development and pollination. Silver, along with other analysts contacted by HAT, believe this will begin to become a factor after the market reacts to Friday’s reports.  Tom Fritz, with EFG Group, said, “On Monday traders will be saying ‘Okay, we know what the acreage is, what is the weather forecast.’”  Jim Riley, with Riley Trading, says the trade is already discounting the planted acreage number from USDA since it will reflect conditions as of the first week of June. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News After the Report, Then What? But things are not so good in Western Corn Belt states. Mike Silver, with Kokomo Grain, says the market has not picked up on that fact yet, “There is quite a contrast between crop conditions here in the Eastern Corn Belt and what farmers are facing in western states like Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and the Dakotas.” Silver says the market has been looking at overall crop ratings and not digging deeper into the situation, “In my opinion, the market has not picked up on the differences between the east and the west.” After the Report, Then What? By Gary Truitt – Jun 27, 2013 SHARE While Eastern Corn Belt crops have some issues including flooding and loss of nitrogen, “For the most part, the corn looks to be in very good condition,” said Darren Goebel, DuPont Pioneer agronomist. His colleague Ryan Piel says pretty much the same thing about Eastern Corn Belt soybeans, “Where the soybeans are not flooded out, the crop is coming along nicely and beginning to move from the light green to the dark green color we like to see. I think it is going to be a good year for soybeans.”last_img read more

Interior Appropriations Bill Passes With Key Provisions for Ag

first_img By Andy Eubank – Jul 15, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Interior Appropriations Bill Passes With Key Provisions for Ag SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Interior Appropriations Bill Passes With Key Provisions for Ag SHARE The House Interior appropriations bill passed through committee by a vote of 29 to 19 Tuesday. The bill allocates how federal dollars are spent for the Department of Interior, Environmental Protection Agency and related agencies during Fiscal Year 2015. It includes language that Public Lands Council and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Federal Lands Executive Director Dustin Van Liew says are important to keeping livestock producers in business – such as blocking the listing of Sage Grouse and requiring alternative allotments where ranchers are impacted by drought or wildfire without the need to complete extensive environmental analyses. The bill also includes a permanent extension of a grazing rider that would allow livestock grazing to continue while the renewal process is held up through the National Environmental Policy Act analysis backlog. Another provision in the bill is to extend grazing permit terms to 20-years. Van Liew says both provisions are vital to the agencies and add significantly to the certainty ranchers need to run successful businesses. The PLC and NCBA applaud the committee for supporting the primary language from the Grazing Improvement Act and urge the full House and Senate to pass the bill without delay.NCBA Environmental Counsel Ashley McDonald says cattle producers have grave concerns over EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed expansion of the Clean Water Act. NCBA applauds the committee for sending the bill forward with language that would prevent the agencies from finalizing this regulation. McDonald says the bill will also prevent EPA from requiring livestock operations to report their greenhouse gas emissions and from requiring operations to get GHG permits. She says the bill provides needed safeguards for the privacy and property rights of America’s cattle producers that the federal agencies refuse to recognize and respect.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articlePurdue Top Farmer Strategies Include Getting Back to BasicsNext articleSoy Checkoff Request for Referendum Results Released Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Food Companies Moving Ahead with Their Own GMO Labels While Congress…

first_img Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Food Companies Moving Ahead with Their Own GMO LabelsKelly JohnsonThe Senate will vote on the GMO labeling bill this week; and, if passed, it will move to the House. Meanwhile, a Vermont labeling law went into effect last Friday requiring labels on products containing GMO products.  Some food companies, however, are moving ahead with their own labels. Kelly Johnson, VP of Government affairs for the Campbell Soup Company, says Vermont has written a bad labeling bill and Congress has failed to establish a national standard. So Campbell’s has decided to come up with its own label, “We feel we can write a better label than Vermont, one that does not scare consumers and promotes the safety of GMOs.”The Campbell’s label states in clear and simple terms what products in the soup are produced with GMO technology, but also states on the label that the FDA has tested and approve the safety of GMO technology, “When you do it like that consumers say, ‘Oh, I get it, I know what is GMO, I get to make my own decision, it is clear, it has been tested, I am OK with it.’”Campbell believes that this approach will not demonize GMO technology but will reassure consumers. Johnson feels that this approach will help consumers trust GMOs and will not result in an advantage for non-GMO products, “If you held educate consumers with clear, simple, and assuring language, they will accept the product.”  He feels some of the aggressive, voluntary non-GMO labels that are being used today actually do more harm than good by scaring and confusing consumers. The bill now before the Senate would eliminate these voluntary labels and set a national standard.Kelly Johnson was part of a panel discussion sponsored and arranged by Dow AgroSciences at their headquarters in Zionsville, IN.But will Congress support this approach? There appears to be enough votes in the Senate for passage, but the Senate bill is different from the one passed a year ago by the House.  If yet another compromise can be reached on Capitol Hill and if this bill eventually gets the approval of the USDA and FDA, remains to be seen.

I think that makes it a harder sell to try and talk them into coming here,” he said. “One thing we need to do is to think about how do we become more welcoming and inclusive for those groups that aren’t here now among students, among faculty and staff.”Krochmal said increasing diversity on campus is crucial to the progress of TCU.“We can’t really make a claim that we’re going to be an elite institution of higher learning if it’s so homogeneous,” he said. “The work we’re doing in CRES is really critical to keeping TCU relevant and competitive.”The CRES curriculum will go to the AddRan College of Liberal Arts curriculum committee at the end of the month. If the proposal is approved, the program will be launched in fall 2017.Listen to the full interview with Dr. Krochmal below. Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more
