The firm posted a pre-tax profit of £394.8m for 2010, from a £235.8m loss the previous year. Total assets rose 2.7 per cent to £4.2bn while net assets rose 5.8 per cent to £2.6bn.Gross rents for the firm, which owns swathes of Mayfair and Belgravia, declined 10.6 per cent to £284m. But revenue profit, which Grosvenor views as the best measure of its underlying performance, rose 3.2 per cent to £64.2m.The company said it plans to reinvest in development projects to benefit from the continued rise in property values following two years of losses, as well as beefing up its fund management business. whatsappcenter_img Tags: NULL Rising real estate values push Grosvenor to profit Tuesday 19 April 2011 8:10 pm Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapPink Floyd’s Roger Waters Denies Zuckerberg’s Request to Use Song in Ad:The WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Brandt Iden’s fight for legal igaming in Michigan

first_img Representative Brandt Iden was just a signature away from legalising online gaming in Michigan last year. Having shrugged off his bills’ eventual veto by former Governor Rick Snyder, a new legislative effort is now underway. He tells iGamingBusiness.com why the climate is right for the new bills to pass into law – and why the DoJ’s new Wire Act interpretation does not worry him in the slightest.Representative Brandt Iden came within a whisker of bringing legal betting, gaming and fantasy sports to Michigan in 2018. A trio of proposals he introduced, House Bills 4926, 4927 and 4928, were approved by the two chambers of the state legislature, making it to Governor Rick Snyder’s desk. However Iden’s efforts were ultimately in vain, after Snyder vetoed the legislation – one of his last acts before his term as governor ended.Undeterred by this setback, Iden has relaunched efforts in 2019, filing House Bill 4311 earlier this month, with Senator Curtis Hertel filing the same proposal in the state Senate. The fact that Iden, a Republican, and Hertel, a Democrat, are working together to legalise gaming highlights the bipartisan support for gaming expansion in the state. Prospects are good, especially as Michigan’s newly installed Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer has made public comments suggesting she is willing to consider the move.While he was only elected to the House in 2015, Iden has been involved in gambling expansion efforts ever since. In his eyes, it makes perfect sense to regulate gambling, something he describes as an effort “to regulate something that already exists in the marketplace”.Iden has effectively taken over the mantle as the champion of igaming regulation in the state legislature from Senator Mike Kowall, who came to the end of his term limit at the 2018 mid-term elections. It was Kowall who originally asked Iden to spearhead efforts in the House while he worked on his fellow Senators.“I said absolutely as it’s an effort to protect consumers and generate tax revenue for the state,” Iden says.Bipartisan support But, he adds, it has been a gradual process.
“One of the things that any sort of gaming legislation requires is education,” Iden explains. “There are a lot of stakeholders, from regulators, consumers, vendors, casinos – in Michigan there are 23 tribal casinos and three commercial casinos – and a state lottery.“Just by virtue of that, and remember I also have 110 counterparts in the house, part of what took us so long to get it to the governor’s desk was the educational component, getting people comfortable with what we are looking to do, understanding why is it important to regulate and why we need to protect consumers.”What helped progress, he adds, is the fact that gambling is not a partisan issue.“This is an issue of fairness, about protecting customers, making sure they are not being taken advantage of, and also helping problems with addiction – you can regulate gambling problems much better on the internet – and having the ability to regulate their habits keeps them safe.”Do your homework The fact that his proposals, which initially appeared to only have a remote chance of being passed, had garnered such strong support from Democrats and Republicans alike made the veto all the more surprising.“It was very disappointing,” he says of Snyder’s veto. “Whenever you work hard on something for over two years, building up that level of support only to get a veto in the final days of the governor’s administration – he only had 48 hours left in office – it was very disappointing.“But when you fall down you have to get back up again, so we got right back up and went back it again,” he says.Reflecting on Snyder’s decision, Iden says the former governor “didn’t do any of his homework”.“I don’t believe that he thought I would be able to get the bills to his desk, and because of that he wasn’t up to speed on the issue,” he says. “I think the veto was out of ignorance to some extent.”Hot prospect In the new legislative cycle things are different. Whitmer has not just made supportive public statements about gambling regulation, Iden says, but has also taken time to work with him to understand the issue.“Her policy people are up to speed, they’re asking through the right questions and working through the key issues, and I believe that they have seen a good opportunity for good bipartisan legislation,” he adds.However he adds the changing of the guard necessitated by the 2018 midterms means education once more comes to the fore to ensure new Representatives and Senators understand issues associated with gambling. iGamingBusiness.com is speaking to Iden ahead of a hearing on his proposals in the House Regulatory Reform Committee (on March 19), and he is confident it will progress: “I think you’ll see each bill coming out of committee with strong bipartisan support. My colleagues knew how hard I had worked on it and they would like to see us get this done.”His optimism proved justified, with the bill passing through the committee with 13 votes in favour, and just one against. It now moves to the House Ways and Means Committe, which Iden chairs.Wire Act worries – or not Having suffered a setback with Snyder’s veto, Iden is now confident that the conditions are right for the legislation to pass into law. While HB4311 does not explicitly legalise sports betting, instead giving the Division of Internet Gaming – a new entity created to regulate the market – the option to do so, Iden argues that igaming and sports betting are “intertwined”. 
“They go hand in hand,” he says.As such, he’s hopeful that internet gaming will be up and running for Michigan residents by January 2020, with sports betting not far behind.“I’d be happy [if we were] able to take Super Bowl bets in our casinos next year,” he says. “We’ll see how aggressive that timeline is but I think there’s an opportunity to get it done. I think we’re in a good spot to get it done quickly, and get our operators up and running.”And he does not foresee any issues from the Department of Justice’s revised opinion on the Wire Act. Published in January this year, the new stance states that the 1961 legislation applies to all forms of gambling, and not just sports betting as stated by a 2011 interpretation. While this has the potential to bring the US igaming industry to its knees by blocking the transfer of gambling-related data across state lines, Iden simply can’t see the opinion being upheld.“I think the revised opinion is totally garbage,” he says bluntly. “I’ve looked at it, I’ve reviewed it, and it doesn’t make any sense.“Under a strict interpretation, it would make the cross-state lotteries [such as Powerball] – which have brought in more than $900m for our public schools – we would have to shut that down.”Efforts to challenge the DoJ’s new stance are underway, with Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filing an amicus brief, alongside 11 other states and the District of Columbia, to the legal challenge launched in New Hampshire.Even if this challenge fails, Iden doesn’t believe the opinion could be enforced by the federal government: “It would also require the government to act – and considering the problems in Washington I don’t think this is going to happen,” he says.“I think this was Adelson’s way of firing back at states leading the charge in gaming expansion,” he adds. “The only thing we can do is push forward with the legislation and see if the federal government wants to challenge us. I don’t think they will.”

Please enter your email address here By Anne Sarah Rubin, Associate Professor History, University of Maryland, Baltimore County and first published on theconversation.comThey marched down Pennsylvania Avenue, 65,000 strong, tightly packed, in a column that ultimately stretched for 15 miles and took over six hours to pass.Their “glittering muskets looked like a solid mass of steel, moving with the regularity of a pendulum.”Sherman’s Army marched steadily, firmly, like the hardened veterans that they were, with dignity and discipline.They marched through throngs of cheering spectators, thousands upon thousands of black and white Washingtonians, crowding the streets and the sidewalks, leaning out of windows and huzzahing.Their torn and dirty flags were garlanded with flowers, but black streamers hung from the staffs, emblems of mourning for Abraham Lincoln.The Army of the Potomac had marched the day before, all spit and polish, to great cheers of acclamation, but this day, May 24th, 1865, belonged to the Western Army, to Sherman’s Bummers. “Bummer” had once been used as an epithet for slackers and thieves, but Sherman’s men took this on as an honored nickname.They were, in the words of the New York Times, the “glorious veterans…heroes of the greatest march on record,” and their beloved Uncle Billy, General William Tecumseh Sherman, was the man of the hour.Parading with the spoils of warSpectators uniformly noted that the cheers for the Westerners were even louder and more sustained than those for the Easterners.Nor did they march alone. Sherman’s Army, famous for making Georgia – and then South Carolina and North Carolina – howl, brought their spoils of war to the victory parade.Each brigade was led by its respective “pioneer corps,” made up of formerly enslaved men who were put to work clearing swamps and building roads, helping the soldiers as they hacked their way across the Confederacy.And interspersed throughout the columns of soldiers were scenes designed to bring the story of the march right into the heart of the capital: African-American mothers with their children; mules and donkeys laden down with hams and chickens; soldiers’ pet dogs and raccoons.The crowd responded to these amusing vignettes with further cheers and gales of laughter.The beginning of rememberingThe Grand Review of the Union Armies on May 23-24 1865 was a performance, a victory display of martial power designed to put the final punctuation on the war.Washingtonians literally swept away the mourning crepe that had draped buildings for the previous five weeks and greeted the soldiers with open arms and an outpouring of emotion.Marching up Pennsylvania Avenue. National ArchivesSherman was himself a master of the theatrical grand gesture, as evidenced by the drama of his march, and he embraced this opportunity.For the Grand Review didn’t just mark the end of the war, but the beginning of the remembering. And Sherman’s soldiers carefully crafted their own narrative of what the march meant to them.Today, Americans’ cultural memory of Sherman’s March is generally that of the Southern civilians who saw their homes raided and their property destroyed.Atlanta burning in Gone With the Wind.It is a memory that has been shaped most profoundly by Gone with the Wind – both the book and film – and the result is a portrayal of Sherman as Attila, and his men as Huns or Vandals, bent on vengeance, careless with fire, possibly guilty of war crimes.But that’s not how Sherman and his men were seen during the Grand Review, and it’s not how they saw themselves.William Tecumseh Sherman. National ArchivesSherman’s veterans, at least those who spoke and wrote publicly about their experiences, were remarkably untroubled by the war they made against civilians.They looked at the march not as something that broke the laws of war, but instead as one of the great experiences of their lives.The veterans speakFor Sherman’s veterans, the Georgia and Carolinas campaigns, with their short daily marches, abundant food and lack of fighting, were a lark.As General Noyes recalled in 1869,“in this rollicking picnic expedition there was just enough of fighting for variety, enough of hardship to give zest to the repose which followed it, and enough of ludicrous adventure to make its memory a constant source of gratification.”And their reminiscences were often quite funny, even as they told of stealing clothing or wrecking storehouses. They praised Bummers for their endless appetites.One veteran called the common soldier “an Octopus of Abdomen, whose tentacles reached every hen roost and pig sty.” They were adventurers and rogues, not despoilers and villains.But to see Sherman’s veterans as emphasizing only the lighthearted aspects of the march is to fundamentally misunderstand what it meant to them.For all their minimizing of hardships and the horrors of war, they well understood what they fought for, and they believed wholeheartedly that their march, their efforts, had brought the war to an end.Pulling up the tracks in Atlanta. Library of Congress – LC-DIG-cwpb-03391They never wavered in their belief that the march was necessary. The Confederacy had brought destruction on itself by tearing apart the Union, they believed, and it was the duty of these soldiers to reunite the nation, by any means at their disposal.Many of Sherman’s veterans sought to preserve their own memories of the war and the march in order to explicitly counter the pro-Confederate Lost Cause that gained prominence during the late 19th century.Their efforts were no match for that cultural tide. Only now, as the sesquicentennial passes, can we pause to remember their version of Sherman’s March. AWW COME ON LADY, Billy most likely saved man a good man from an early death. Brash? Bold? Even Mad perhaps, but he doesn’t deserve to be forgotten.

CAF Charity Street II reveals rising public use of charities

first_imgMore key findings: Charity or not a charity? – The research found that almost a quarter (23%) were unaware that the services that they or someone in their household had used were run by charities.There is a lack of charitable awareness – only 8% of those interviewed were aware that all of the services that were included in the research were run by charities prior to taking part in the survey.Charities underpin society – people believe that charities play an essential / very important role in society in general (92%), as well as in the area in which they live (80%). More than 2 in 5 (43%) feel that charities play an essential or very important role in their lives and those of their household.Charities are best placed and most trusted to speak on behalf of the disadvantaged – 84% felt that charities were best placed to speak on behalf of disadvantaged people and 76% said they most trusted charities to do this. This is significantly higher than for politicians where 27% felt MPs were best placed and just 3% said they would trust them most to speak on behalf of disadvantaged people.The full report can be accessed on the CAF site: www.cafonline.org/docs/default-source/about-us-publications/160704_caf_charity_street_report_web.pdf Melanie May | 19 July 2016 | News CAF Charity Street II reveals rising public use of charities AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Advertisement Key findings: Those in the least deprived areas of the UK access a larger number of charitable services – those in the least deprived areas in the UK have accessed on average 6.24 services compared to 5.60 services for those in the most deprived areas. Services accessed differ, with those in the least deprived areas accessing charitable services provided for entertainment or education (such as museums and universities) compared to those in the most deprived areas. Conversely, those in the most deprived areas are more likely to access services that provide support, advice, care or housing.Young people and women are more likely to have personally used a charity service – 18-24 year olds are more likely to have personally used a service provided by a charitable organisation in the last month (60% vs. 50% overall) and women are more likely to have used a service in the last month than men (54% vs. 44%).Charities are seen to provide a wide range of benefits to people – the most common benefit reported from using a charity service was providing an enjoyable/fun experience (22%, up from 13% in 2014). The second biggest benefit was receiving emotional support or counselling from a charity service (20%, up from 14% in 2014).

Despite Brexit taking place across the ocean, how will the process impact the housing market in the U.S.?“A no-deal Brexit would probably hurt U.S. home sales in 2019,” says Chief Economist Danielle Hale of realtor.com. “The slowdown in global economic growth centered in the U.K. and Europe would likely cause the U.S. economy to soften. That would lead to lower job growth and less income growth. Both are really important drivers for people looking to buy homes.”According to realtor.com, Brexit could lead to lower mortgage rates for U.S. homebuyers. Instability in the U.K. may lead to British investors moving to safer investments such as U.S. Treasury Bonds, pushing rates down.”We definitely saw the housing market slow when mortgage rates got close to 5% at the end of 2018,” says Hale. “If Brexit does hold mortgage rates down, it could help power some additional home sales this spring.”Additionally, sellers may find British real estate investors looking to buy in the U.S. to avoid instability, especially among luxury real estate.”The British will have a harder time buying property in Spain, Italy, and other parts of Europe,” says Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors. “They could look to the U.S. as an alternative destination to buy.””Many folks who have been based in London over the last 20 or 30 years are shifting their interests into the United States,” says attorney Edward Mermelstein of the New York City-based One and Only Holdings. His foreign investor clients have been buying up apartment buildings in and around New York City over the past six months as a result of Brexit.”When they’re selling in London, they’re buying in New York,” he says.Worst case scenario, though, is Brexit leads to an economic recession in Britain and in the E.U.“It could have a negative ripple effect to the U.S.,” says Yun.Find more at Realtor.com.
