Airlines set for higher profits

first_img THE WORLD’S airlines are set to make an $8.9bn (£5.7bn) profit this year, according to sharply revised figures from the International Air Transport Association (IATA).Stronger-than-expected recovery within the commercial aviation sector has pushed the leading industry body to up its profits forecast for 2010 from June, when it said the sector would post just $2.5bn in profits for the year.“The industry recovery has been stronger and faster than anyone predicted. The profit we are projecting will start to recoup the nearly $50bn lost over the previous decade,” said IATA chief executive and director general, Giovanni Bisignani.But in its first forecast for 2011, IATA said it expects profits to fall to $5.3bn as lingering doubts remain over how long the recovery will last. KCS-content Meanwhile, Asia-Pacific airlines continue to outpace competitors and are expected to post profits of $5.2bn as a result of a surge in business travel in the region and a 23.5 per cent increase in passenger traffic. According to IATA, European carriers are expected to improve 2010 losses to $1.3bn from the $2.8bn the industry body forecast in June. Bisignani said: “There are lingering doubts over how long this cyclical upturn will last. Even if it is sustainable, the profit margins that we operate on are razor thin.” Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Airlines set for higher profits The world’s airlines are expected to post collective revenue of $560bn for the year, marking a $15bn increase on what was previously forecasted. whatsapp Share Tuesday 21 September 2010 8:00 pm Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Paf details new responsible gambling push in Latvia

first_imgStrategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 17th October 2019 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Baltics Latvia Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Paf details new responsible gambling push in Latvia Email Address Åland Islands-based Paf has joined forces with four other operators on a new initiative to strengthen their responsible gaming efforts in Latvia.Paf, which operates as Pafbet in Latvia, will work with Betsafe, Optibet, 11.lv and Feniksscasino to improve their responsible gaming measures beyond the requirements of gambling law in the Baltic state.Latvia’s Gambling Act includes only a small number of responsibility measures, such as that players must set a bet limit for one game or a maximum amount for all bets within a 24-hour period. Consumers can also self-exclude from a gaming operator.However, the new initiative will see Paf and the other operators introduce their own responsible gaming tools. The group, which together represents 90% of the Latvian online gaming market, agreed to launch these measures by 30 June 2020.Rihards Streikis, Paf’s manager in Latvia, said among the operator’s own targets will be to introduce new facilities for self-tests, deposit limits, closing specific game categories and publishing proactive information on responsible gaming.“It will be a clear improvement on what the gambling law in Latvia requires,” Streikis said. “Paf’s licensed brand in Latvia may currently have a small part of the market but we have the most developed responsible gaming; we are an example for the other operators.”The commitment comes after Paf this month also moved to lower its maximum annual loss limit from €30,000 (£25,854/$33,226) to €25,000 in order to offer greater protection to its players from gambling-related harms.Paf introduced the initial loss limit in June 2018 and at the time estimated that it would lose 5% of its income because of the feature. In May, Paf cited the limits as the primary reason for a decline in overall revenue in 2018.Revenue slipped from €116.5m to €111.8m and online revenue fell from €84.5m to €80.0m in 2018. This month, Paf said the lowering of the limit should cost the business about 2% of its revenue, or around €2m.

It was a four-month-long journey,” Francis told PTI from Tambov, a countryside town in Russia today. He said he had bought a ticket for the France-Denmark match on June 26 and was waiting to watch it with his fingers crossed.“Every day you meet new people, see new landscapes, new culture….,” he said, adding both good and bad experiences came his way during the journey.Francis says though all his papers, including visa, were in order, he was denied permission to enter Georgia through Azerbaijan, forcing him to take an alternative route.“I felt sad at their behaviour as a German cyclist was allowed to take the route. But there were times when I saw the goodness in human beings as people whom I had never met gave me shelter, the warmth of their homes and offered food,” the software engineer said.Football had always been his first love and watching the FIFA World Cup a long cherished dream. After obtaining his B.Tech degree, Francis worked at the Infopark at Kakkanad in Kochi for some time, before taking up a job as a mathematics teacher at a coaching school, Saji, his paternal uncle said. “He was always a hard worker and slogged at the coaching class without taking any leave and saved as much as he could to have his dream fulfilled. Relatives also chipped in (with money).”Francis said he celebrated his birthday with the residents of Maymeh in Iran, enjoying the hot kebabs they served with ‘Istak’, a local drink, an experience he would never forget.The local people there are great fans of Indian film stars like Raj Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Mithun Chakraborty, while the younger ones especially enquired about Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai, he said.When I went into a house, the family was watching an old Raj Kapoor starrer, he said.Francis, who hopes to reach Moscow by June 21, said it is his long-cherished dream to meet Messi.When asked if he would be able to make it come true, he said, “I have reached this far. I am an optimist. My desire is to meet Messi. (I) Don’t know if it is possible….I am a diehard fan of his.”Football fans in Kerala have painted roads, private vehicles and public transport buses in the colours of their favourite teams.

Truce? Keep your guard up

first_imgThe news that the Obama administration has finally agreed to a partial truce over Syria with Russia did not bring true relief to those concerned about the Syrian people or about the danger of a wider war. The confrontation between nuclear powers was at least postponed, and it may get worse yet. The anti-war and anti-imperialist movement in the United States better stay on the alert.The Turkish army has been shelling Kurdish areas across the border and threatening invasion. The U.S. neocons are complaining that Bashar al-Assad is still president of Syria. The Saudi Arabian regime is reported to be seeking nuclear weapons. Peace hasn’t come yet.In the corporate media’s current coverage of the war on Syria, there is an ongoing attempt to blame the Damascus government for everything that happens to the Syrian people. Stephen Kinzer, a former New York Times correspondent who currently is a senior fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University, called this coverage “one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the [U.S.] American press.” (Boston Globe, Feb. 18)Since the corporate media’s coverage of Syria constantly distorts what is happening there, a review of recent history is necessary. In 2011, after a short period of unarmed protest, a conflict began between the regime on one side and armed reactionary groups of the al-Qaida type on the other. These groups were armed and financed by Saudi Arabia as well as Turkey and other NATO powers, and all were cheered on by the imperialists, including Washington.The result has been nearly five years of a reactionary international war against Syria’s legitimate, sovereign government. Reactionary, sectarian fighters provided the “boots on the ground” against the Damascus government. The warfare has killed more than 250,000 Syrians, about two-thirds of them Syrian soldiers and pro-government civilians, and has driven millions of Syrians into exile, including into Europe, but mostly into the region.U.S. imperialism and its allies, including the Turkish regime and the Gulf monarchies, are responsible for this horror. It was only in mid-2014, when the Islamic State group (I.S.) declared a “caliphate” and began to menace imperialist interests in Syria and Iraq, that Washington began to alter its uncritical support for the Syrian opposition.But even when the U.S. claimed to be attacking the I.S., those in the U.S. establishment who never wanted to relinquish the goal of “regime change” in Syria balked. Despite the propaganda campaign against I.S., little was done to degrade these reactionaries’ position in Syria.It was only last fall, when Russia intervened at Syria’s invitation, that the Russian-Iranian-Hezbollah-Syrian offensive began to erode the military position of the Islamic State and al-Qaida-like groups. The neocons and all the imperialist strategists are frustrated by their inability to control events, no matter how much they destroy, as their experience in Iraq, Libya, Yemen and now Syria shows. They are all the more frustrated now that the support of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah for their Syrian ally has improved the chances for a victory over the reactionaries.In that Boston Globe article, Kinzer argues that only by supporting the Syrian government forces can the Islamic State group be defeated.Despite Kinzer’s rational argument, there is no reason to expect those in power in the U.S. would follow his advice. It would not be the first time in history that militarists overestimated their own ability to control events by using force. Let’s not forget that every European imperialist power before World War I believed it could quickly defeat its enemies.On Jan. 23, while Secretary of State John Kerry was promoting peace talks about Syria, Vice President Joe Biden was in Ankara promising support to the Turkish regime, which had asked the U.S. to be more aggressive in Syria against Russia. Whether this two-sided approach is a negotiating tactic or a sign of a difference in the administration, it leaves the danger of a wider war in place.Those inside the U.S. who want to fight against war can only take a short breath with the danger of a major war still in view. They had better be ready for whatever happens next, ready to stand up against any U.S., NATO, Turkish or Saudi escalation in their war against Syria and its allies.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trump admin ramps up attack on migrant families

first_imgMigrant children lined up at an immigrant detention facility in Tornillo, Texas, run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.The heartless separation of migrant families at the Mexico/Texas border has galvanized a nationwide response, resulting in multiple occupations of Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices and popularizing the demand to abolish ICE.This movement to stop Trump’s war on migrants has grown alongside a month-long prison strike, raising the opportunity for solidarity between both struggles against racist violence and oppression. The Boston chapter of FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) organized a protest on Sept. 8 outside the Bristol County Jail with a loud sound system that broadcast solidarity with the strike demands.Both movements evoke the 1971 Attica prison rebellion’s naming of prisons as “concentration camps for the poor,” since the true criminals of society — the rich, the warmongers, the police — never face justice for their 24/7 crimes against the people.Now the Trump administration is scheming to withdraw from the 1997 Flores v. Reno settlement agreement, which prevents migrant children from being detained for more than 20 days.The Department of Homeland Security is attempting to scrap that rule and be allowed to legally lock up migrant children and their families indefinitely. Withdrawing from the settlement would give the administration legal cover to create actual concentration camps.The Flores settlement also requires the government to provide decent conditions for migrants who are detained. However, it has been widely reported that ICE and the centers it hires break that law repeatedly. Under detention, migrant children have suffered physical and sexual abuse, forced psychotropic drugging, neglect and exploitative labor.Withdrawal from the Flores settlement would make it legal for ICE to run family detention centers without getting state licenses, immunizing it from lawsuits that could arise from the rampantly appalling conditions it oversees. More children would be kept in prisonlike facilities for the duration of their immigration proceedings, which can take up to a year.Thousands of migrant children still in detentionDHS is attempting to discard the Flores requirements even as news broke on Sept. 12 that at least 12,800 children were still in detention centers. The report shows that the number of locked-up migrant children had increased fivefold in one year, contradicting the widely reported number of 400.The number of 400 actually represents the children who have not yet been reunited with their families after the zero-tolerance, criminal separations of refugees and asylum seekers began at the border in May. It was originally 2,600 children; then a judge ordered the Trump administration to reunite the families. After it complied, only 400 of those children remain.The other 12,800 still in detention are mostly children who made the journey from Central and South America on their own — without parents. Before the Trump crackdown, they could get out of a detention center if a family sponsored them. But now the Trump administration requires sponsors to be fingerprinted.This further criminalization of migrants has dramatically reduced the number of people willing to be sponsors, and it has increased the number of children locked up in detention centers. Obviously, in the face of ICE/police collaboration, migrants don’t want to submit fingerprints to what has turned into a vicious deportation machine. But even those families willing to be fingerprinted in order to become sponsors have to wait months to complete  the process.Of course, nobody can accept the DHS rationale for the fingerprints — that the government is vetting sponsors out of concern for the children. “Children who enter the country illegally are at high risk for exploitation by traffickers and smugglers,” a DHS spokesperson claimed.“The main ‘traffickers’ and abusers of migrant children and their entire families are ICE agents, operating under orders from the racist Trump administration,” said Teresa Gutierrez, a FIRE leader. “Whether it’s the prisonlike conditions in for-profit detention centers — or situations like the one in Phoenix, where military contractor MVM kept dozens of children in vacant offices with no kitchen and few toilets — migrant children do need protection by the people’s movement and against incarceration.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The suspect (Aquilino Alvarado-Miranda, male Hispanic, 51 years) stabbed his wife several times during a domestic dispute and fled the location prior to the arrival of the police. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for her injures. Officers continued their investigation and a wanted flyer was distributed to other Pasadena Police officers. Later in the afternoon at approximately 1:20 pm., Miranda was located by police officers assigned to Team 1 (uniform patrol division). Miranda was arrested without incident after he complied with the officer’s orders to surrender. Great follow-up and arrest!On November 20, at about 6:15 p.m., Pasadena Police officers investigated a call of shots fired near Glen Avenue and Pepper Street. Officers talked to the witness who provided limited information. PPD officers, however, were able to secure some information about the suspect vehicle, which was described only as a light colored SUV. About two hours later, PPD officers responded to another call of shots in the 1300 block of Glen Avenue. Officers located round strikes on a residence and a vehicle. Victims and witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a light colored SUV. Nothing further was provided. Fortunately, no one was hit by gun fire in either shooting. Our investigation is ongoing.On November 21, at about 11:03 a.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the area of Del Mar Boulevard and Raymond Avenue regarding a Hit & Run Collision. On arrival, PPD officers learned that the suspect broadsided another vehicle in the intersection of Del Mar Boulevard and Raymond Avenue. Witnesses followed the suspect vehicle into South Pasadena where SPPD officers attempted a traffic stop near Orange Grove Boulevard and Columbia Street. The suspect failed to yield and a vehicle pursuit was initiated, which involved SPPD, Pasadena Police officers, and the Pasadena Police Air Crew. The suspect driver (female Hispanic, 39, Imperial Beach resident) was subsequently arrested without further incident after complying with officer’s orders to surrender. The police helicopter was invaluable in the effort to locate, track, and arrest the suspect.On November 21 at about 11:20 a.m., Pasadena Police Officers Zilbert and Velasquez received a call regarding a male Hispanic pushing a female Hispanic while standing near the bus bench at Howard Street and Lincoln Avenue. On arrival, the officers saw a person matching the description of the male provided by the caller. PPD Officers detained the male Hispanic and during the subsequent investigation, they found a loaded firearm tucked into the front of his waistband. Officers removed the firearm and arrested the suspect without incident. The suspect was also in possession of material suggesting he was involved in other criminal activity (possession of instruments of identity theft). The suspect was booked at the Pasadena jail.On November 22, at 3:01 p.m., Pasadena Police officers investigated a strong-arm robbery in the 1700 block of East Colorado Boulevard. The suspect (Robert Sanchez, homeless male Hispanic) entered a commercial business and began acting suspiciously. The clerk asked Sanchez to leave the location.
