The French and German economies make up almost 50 per cent of the single currency bloc.German gross domestic product increased by 0.4 per cent, against expectations of a 0.5 per cent rise and a deceleration from the 0.7 per cent growth registered in the third quarter.In France, the expansion was 0.3 per cent, half the expected increase, and the same level as in the July-September period. Economists had been expecting growth in the euro zone’s second largest economy to return to the 0.6 per cent in the second quarter.French Economy Minister Christine Lagarde said she hoped for stronger growth in the first quarter and maintained the government’s forecast for expansion this year of two per cent.Snow and icy weather may have played a role. Construction in particular was hit hard and can be expected to rebound.“This won’t last, it’s not the end of the recovery. The winter weather slowed things down and we should see a higher rate of growth in the first quarter,” Commerzbank economist Christoph Weil said, referring to the German economy.Growth in the third quarter tempered after a very strong April-June period – when the German economy powered ahead by 2.2 per cent quarter-on-quarter.French analysts were less upbeat about their economy despite Lagarde’s upbeat prognosis.“This fairly mediocre figure confirms France is on a path of sluggish growth,” said Alexander Law, chief economist at Xerfi“At the end of the day, if we take out technical and one-off elements, France is on an annualised growth rhythm of 1.2 per cent.” Share German and French GDP growth lower than expected John Dunne last_img read more

NZ TAB completes $26m relaunch

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address NZ TAB completes $26m relaunch Sports betting Regions: Oceania New Zealand Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovationcenter_img New Zealand’s TAB has unveiled its new betting site with partners Paddy Power Betfair and OpenBet.The new fixed odds platform and mobile app is powered by SG Digital-owned OpenBet’s technology, with Paddy Power Betfair providing odds services for international sporting events.The enhanced site, first announced in 2017 as a response to falling market share, will offer cash-out for the first time as well as an improved in-play betting service, more international and local markets and streaming coverage.TAB owner New Zealand Racing Board (NZRB) described the new site as a “game-changer” for sports betting in New Zealand, estimating it will deliver a NZ$30m (€17.6m/$20.4m) increase in net betting profit from 2021/22.“This is the dawn of a new era for the NZRB and for New Zealand betting customers as we deliver a more compelling betting experience and significantly enhancing the number of betting opportunities we can offer,” says NZRB chief executive John Allen.“We’ve replaced our existing website and app with a responsive, modern and easy-to-navigate site that delivers more products and events.“The new platform will also be a game-changer for our core business, improving business stability and continuity and by moving a number of core functions managed by our old system Jetbet, into a new platform provided by Openbet it gives us the flexibility to set our own odds on events where our local expertise outpaces the PaddyPower options.”TAB has a notional monopoly on sports betting in the country, however its failure to prevent punters seeking out offshore rivals led to it announcing plans to enhance the site back in 2017.The updated TAB service was due to be ready by August 2018, but launch was postponed due to extensive testing. The site closed entirely for business between Sunday evening and Monday morning in preparation for the launch of the new system, website and mobile app.Last July it was estimated that the project would cost NZ$37-39m in total, with the NZRB estimating that it would take 3.3 years of the revamped TAB being live to recoup these costs.Allen said the contribution of partners OpenBet and PaddyPower Betfair ensured TAB would be more competitive and therefore increase returns to the racing industry.He said: “What they have done is ensure the New Zealand TAB, a significant and valuable industry asset, can now compete with the rest of the world, increase our revenue and in turn, our distributions back to racing and sport.”Consumers in New Zealand spent NZ$2.33bn on gaming and gambling in the 2016-17 financial year, up 5.7% on the previous 12 months. 10th January 2019 | By contenteditor New site powered by SG Digital’s OpenBet spotsbook solution and supported by odds compliation services from Paddy Power Betfair is estimated to boost profits by NZ$20m by the end of the operator’s 2022 financial year.

Struggle over union at Bröd Kitchen

first_imgNew York — The owners of Bröd Kitchen on Manhattan’s trendy Upper East Side suddenly announced on Jan. 14 that they would permanently shut down the unionized bakery/restaurant the following day. This threat to throw 19 workers out of their jobs was a clear attempt at union-busting. The company made the announcement just as it was supposed to begin negotiations for the union’s second contract. The union represents primarily immigrant and African-American workers, some of whom had left other jobs to work at Bröd.Bröd is the new name of the Hot and Crusty bakery. In 2012 workers there waged a historic unionization campaign, led by the Laundry Workers Center and shown in the award-winning documentary “The Hand That Feeds.” They fought hard for a better life for themselves and all workers, forming their own union, the Hot and Crusty Workers Association, which won paid vacations, de facto seniority, a union hiring hall and other crucial rights.By trying to wipe that out, Bröd’s owners are pushing forward a climate in which every right won by working people is under attack.Against this attempted union-busting, a strong coalition of trade union and student militants as well as immigrant activists rallied outside Bröd’s new West 4th Street store on Jan. 28. Between 200 and 300 people were at the protest.Their main slogan was “Stop union-busting at Bröd Kitchen.”The rally was endorsed by New York City’s Central Labor Council. Student groups from both New York University, which is close to the new Bröd, and Hunter, close to the old Bröd, were strongly present.Unions that came included Bricklayers, UNITE-HERE Local 100, United Food and Commercial Workers, Domestic Workers United, postal workers, NY Taxi Workers Alliance, Brandworkers International, TWU Local 100 and the Professional Staff Congress, as well as a class from Union Semester, DC37 Local 768.Activist groups at the rally included the CUNY Internationalist Clubs, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, Families for Freedom, Street Vendor Project, People’s Power Assembly, Crown Heights Tenant Union, 99 Pickets and Justice First.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Limerick trainees face losses of €85,000 apiece

Some are also coming to the end of their visas.According to a spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs, there had been no request at time of going to press for its assistance.It is believed that the students were at various stages of training for professional pilot’s examinations and the IAA is today trying to see if  they can continue their training either in Florida or at home.When contacted by the Limerick Post, the IAA said that fees in excess of €80,000 are not unusual in the field of pilot training.Meanwhile, Deputy Willie O’Dea has plans to raise the issue in Dail question time today to see what can be done.“This is a terrible situation for people who have made a huge investment in their training. I will be pushing to see how they can be helped,” he told the Limerick Post.According to the IAA spokesperson the authority “will endeavour to facilitate the crediting of all flight and ground training carried out so far in Florida towards qualifications”.Captain Kieran O’Connor, of the National Flight Training Centre in Dublin,  one of Europe’s largest training centres, held out some hope for the Limerick students when contacted by the  Limerick Post yesterday.“We feel terribly sorry for all the students involved. They have been badly compromised. “If they make contact with us at the training centre , we’ll do whatever we can to help”.

Watch: A fitting culmination to 850 years of history at St…

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Print Dean of Limerick, Niall Sloane. Photo: Cian ReinhardtST MARY’S Cathedral has a Bunbury.Dean Thomas Bunbury had charge of the parish in the 1800s and his face beams from a portrait in the boardroom.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up His 21st century successor, Dean Niall J Sloane, barely a year in office, accepted this Limerick appointment only to find that a 12-month programme for the Cathedral’s 850-year celebrations was about to get under way.He talks about the Cathedral as a place of worship, as heritage icon, as a community institution, as venue for the arts and as a principal tourist attraction.Around us, St Mary’s is busy this winter afternoon with plenty going on under luminous leaded windows.The Evergreens, a group of local pensioners of all faiths and perhaps none, meet for tea and talks and sharing. Tourists wander. Staff are working upstairs, downstairs.Doors open seven days to morning service. There are lunchtime and evening concerts, exhibitions, Episcopal services and a parish of births, marriages and deaths to tend.“Everything that we do is open to everybody. This is who we are.”That our Church of Ireland Cathedral is for all people is the guiding tenet that Dean Niall J Sloane articulates in several ways.“We based the 850 year programme around 12 areas such as health, education, sport, tourism, people.  We had talks every month and a service to link in with various bodies such as Tidy Towns, Limerick Civic Trust and the Irish Cancer Society.“For example, for The Environment and Architecture unit, we had our own Noreen Elleker speak on Edmund Sexton Pery, the man who designed Pery Square and other parts.”Another initiative invited each of the “hidden heroes of Limerick”, the Suicide Watch groups, Order of Malta, St John’s Ambulance and so on “to say thank you to them. So much of what they do for the city and surrounds is about being unsung heroes.“We sought nominations from them for individual community heroes, open to any representative and from any sector. We received about a dozen.” Now Limerick’s Community Awards Scheme 2019 recipients are Sr Delia O’Connor, Paul Carey, Philip Doran, Tom Naughton, Maura O’Neill and Bedford Row Project.  Their quiet achievements will be acknowledged at St Mary’s Cathedral  on Sunday February 17 at 7pm. In addition, the Dean will present cheques to local charities and groups.Everyone is welcome. A stronger, more united, successful and energised Limerick is the aim of the initiative.“We are partnering with other stakeholders and are particularly conscious of the role played by Limerick Council. We are working together with them as a team.“The Cathedral is the third largest tourist attraction in Limerick, after King John’s Castle and The Hunt Museum and we are the voice of what is Limerick’s oldest building. We are here longer than anyone else.“First and foremost. St Mary’s Cathedral is a place of Christian witness. We are part of a big community and reaching out.”There are other significant identities: as the tourist magnet pulling, in part, a quarter of a million people to Limerick on the medieval trail.“And thirdly, as a place for concerts, talks, the arts, recitals. A cathedral is more than a church, it is a place which by nature of its ministry, can push the boundaries and experiment and be bold.”Case in point, St Mary’s front West Door – for centuries only opened for Episcopal occasions “and very special persons”-  will become the public portal as soon as it is supported by an internal porch.“Everybody is a special person. It is all about engagement.”The revitalisation of downtown Limerick is something that Dean Sloane holds dear for the locals.Outside on Nicholas Street, the painters are busy refreshing edifices in a jointly funded scheme: “Styx is already painted and three houses. We recognise that a lot of people on the street don’t have a lot of money.“We are family here and family supports each other. That’s what families do.” NewsCommunityVideoWatch: A fitting culmination to 850 years of history at St Mary’s CathedralBy Rose Rushe – February 7, 2019 1220 Previous articleCall for bus lane on UL campusNext articleImproving rural life is top of Jim’s local election agenda Rose Rushehttp://www.limerickpost.ieCommercial Features and Arts Editor at Limerick Postcenter_img Advertisement WhatsApp Facebook Emaillast_img read more

Live updates: Evacuations underway in Los Angeles as Getty Fire explodes to 500 acres

first_imgErin Donalson/iStock(LOS ANGELES) — As winds reach extremely dangerous levels in Southern California, the Getty Fire in Los Angeles is exploding in size and forcing thousands of residents to flee their homes. Burning in the hills north of Los Angeles’ famous Getty Center, the fire has consumed 500 acres. The Getty Center and Getty Villa are safe, but many houses were on fire.Mandatory evacuations are in effect in Los Angeles from the 405 freeway to the ocean — which spans some of the most expensive real estate in the city. Southbound lanes of the 405 freeway, the busiest highway in the country, are now closed.In Los Angeles’ upscale Brentwood neighborhood, fire crews put out fires on multiple homes early Monday as the sky glowed orange from the flames and dense smoke.Horrible situation on #tigertail right now in #Brentwood – have counted 6 homes on fire and there’s likely more.

He said he saw five homes destroyed.“We’ve seen fires and tragedies were people have believed they could stay,” Garcetti said. “Do not do that. The only thing you cannot replace is you and your family.”The cause of the quickly spreading blaze is under investigation but Garcetti said it was not caused by homeless encampments.Throughout the day, the conditions in Los Angeles will be extremely dangerous for fire growth.NIGHT BRUSH FIRE 10/28/19 @LACoFireAirOps Firehawk helicopter using night vision technology to assist @LAFD with the #GettyFire in the Sepulveda Pass.
