Pace warning hits share price whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Pace, the world’s biggest maker of set-top boxes, said a US customer was delaying a big order to 2012, reducing its 2011 sales growth and wiping some £100m off its stock market value. The setback overshadowed strong underlying profit growth and an upbeat longer-term outlook, sending Pace shares more than 15 per cent lower as it set an outlook for revenue growth of around the same level as the 17 per cent seen in 2010. Adjusted core earnings rose 36 per cent in 2010 to £103.6m after it shipped 22.2m devices for cable, satellite and IPTV customers such as Comcast, DirecTV and AT&T. Analysts at RBS said the results were higher than they had expected.

New slots on the block: Part 2 Topics: Casino & games Strategy Slots Casino & games In the second part of iGaming Business’ roundtable of the challenges facing new slot studios as they attempt to gain traction in a competitive market, we discuss content aggregation platforms, innovation and M&A. Read part one here.How important are content aggregation platforms to smaller games developers – have these helped you gain access to larger operators? Or do they simply increase costs for you, considering how many games you are still competing against? Andy Harris, Design Works Gaming (AH): With a lot of operators, it is either the aggregation route or no route at all, so many studios depend on them to get their content out because a direct integration isn’t an option. There are some objectives you have to consider before choosing what aggregator platforms to go for though. For example, the integration road map, you want your content out sooner rather than later. Also, what are the preferred aggregators for your customers? Aggregators are important but they do increase cost. There are also so many suppliers with so much content on these platforms that it can be difficult to get your voice heard. We will most likely combine aggregator platforms with direct integrations with operators. Stuart McCarthy, Yggdrasil (SM) : If you are a brand-new studio, having to build a new RGI and develop your own tools, as well as deal with a minefield of regulatory issues, that’s an extremely difficult position to be in. I’d go so far as to say it’s a near impossible task to breakthrough without at least starting with an aggregation platform.If you look at the heavy lifting that must be done now to get into European regulated markets, it requires a huge amount of compliance and systems work as well as significant overheads and investment.Ollie Castleman, OneTouch (OC): Aggregators are sometimes the only pathway into some serious brands as they don’t often accept direct integrations. Having a good relationship with certain staff at aggregators certainly leads to a successful and mutually beneficial partnership.Would you say you’re limited in how you can innovate with your products? Ie, can you take risks such as developing titles that do away with the standard reel format, or does that potentially risk putting time and money into something that will fall flat? SM: If you‘re a small studio it’s a high-risk approach to break out in a radical way from the traditional slots model. If you have strong innovative idea, then you absolutely should invest in it but my advice would be to spread your risk. Iterate out from a proven model and learn from your successes and failures then once you hit on something special go for it for all your worth. And above all pick the right partner to get your games to market with a bang.Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming (SH): Risk is inherent in any move to innovate on market trends, but it is integral for providers looking to set themselves apart and capture player imagination.With such a competitive landscape it is essential to constantly innovate while not alienating players with a totally bizarre concept. To be successful, players need to be able to grasp new mechanics quickly and easily, while understanding the added entertainment they bring. OC: You must carefully control innovation. Many successful innovators have either brought together several technologies simply and effectively, or they have accurately identified where they need to be innovative and where they need to follow industry standards and norms.When it comes to slots, innovation with reel format and game features can often be dictated by the target market for the game. Investment in highly innovative games is risky because a good deal of slots that every company produces will fail to perform, therefore it’s arguably more important to find a balance between volume of game releases and experimentation.Do you feel there is still scope for suppliers to be acquired by larger peers, or would you say the larger studios and service providers are less keen on consolidation today? AH: I don’t think we will see many more suppliers acquired by larger peers in the near future – we have seen this happen on a number of occasions in previous years and I’m not sure how beneficial those have been to the acquiring parties.Moving forward, I believe we will see casualties in the supplier market. It is tough to imagine that the plethora of content providers we currently see will last in the long run. The commercial opportunity has changed hugely in recent years. This has been as a result of a number of factors, not least an increasingly competitive market place, which in turn has been one of the factors driving decreasing revenue share rates, which will ultimately impact quality and lead to less innovation and less choice in the market. A disparate and increasingly onerous regulatory environment hasn’t helped either.SM: This is still happening today but in a different, and arguably more strategic and subtle way. The days of large suppliers acquiring multiple large studios are fading fast. Instead, we’re seeing large providers take a different approach by investing substantial equity stakes in smaller, more innovative, independent studios. They then remain ‘independent’ but as part of a larger portfolio and under a large supplier’s control. I predict we’ll see this happen more often.SH: There is always consistent scope for this. In an increasingly saturated marketplace I would envisage the continuation of supplier M&A activity. In a game of tightening margins, M&A driven scale is an answer studios will continue to turn to, for a variety of reasons. These range from acquiring the minds of a few key people, enhancing studio capacity for development, cost-sharing core functions such as compliance, taking on regional or market-specific portfolios and even distribution networks in some cases. In the second part of iGaming Business’ roundtable of the challenges facing new slot studios as they attempt to gain traction in a competitive market, we discuss content aggregation platforms, innovation and M&A.

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. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Financial brutality! Which FTSE 100 stocks do I think are worth buying? I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Fear of the coronavirus and its wider effects on the global economy have sent shivers through the financial markets. At the time of writing, the markets are in free-fall, and downgrades are inevitable.It may be a shock for many novice shareholders but the coronavirus-linked crash is tipped to be on course for a crisis as bad as, if not worse than, the global crash of 2008.5G 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…Virtually all the FTSE 100’s constituents are displaying losses, and some are posting profit warnings.When panic subsides, which sectors will rise?As Covid-19 is still spreading, we cannot yet predict the extent of the damage it will wreak on national economies and the financial markets.But scaremongering aside, I prefer to look at the bigger picture with a long-term view. When it comes to stocks, among the losers, there will be winners when the world starts to return to normal. And I am looking to billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s advice to seek opportunity in the stock market.For instance, once the panic subsides, and people return to normal life, the entertainment industry will thrive again. It’s human nature to want to celebrate life and enjoy being together. Think pub chains and cinema operators. And although I think people will want to celebrate, some may be less keen to venture out in public, so home food delivery and streaming entertainment products are likely to thrive.It’s reasonable to think this outbreak will make people more vigilant about their personal hygiene so disinfectants, hand gels and immune-boosting products are likely to do well over the long term. That means healthcare and personal care specialists. I like Hikma and Astrazeneca in pharmaceuticals and Reckitt Benckiser, the manufacturer of Dettol in consumer goods.Then there are the sectors that prosper in times of crisis and when times are more ‘normal’ too. I think defence will remain a key focus for governments’ budgets going forward. FTSE 100 Stocks I think worth saving to a watchlist include BAE Systems in defence, which has a 3.8% dividend yield, covered twice by earnings per share, and a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 13.Safeguarding the supply chainAnother issue that the coronavirus crisis has thrown up is around company supply chains. Where are companies getting their products from or the machinery they need to manufacture the goods? Is this going to be affected by the closing of borders? And perhaps firms with the best control of their supply chains are worthy investment targets.Many FTSE 100 constituents are international, with a complex supply chain often focused on China. Associated British Foods, which owns Primark, has warned of potential stock shortages on disruption to its supply chain, but is also being proactive about protecting its supplies.Popular homeware retailer Dunelm, which has enjoyed a share price rise of 29% over the past three months, gets its stock from overseas too. In mid-February its CEO said the company has enough stock to tide it over for months.But aside from checking out companies making in-demand products and with robust supply chains, I think the key thing that is important for every shareholder to remember is Don’t Panic! Avoid panic-selling, as you never want to sell at the bottom. Sit tight and wait for more information or good buying opportunities if you’ve done your research and have cash to spare.

Rev. Brian Prior, IX Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, will ordain 33 people on Saturday, June 20. Of these 33, six are Hmong members of Holy Apostles, the first Hmong-majority faith community within the Episcopal Church.Two of the six are being ordained as vocational deacons, while the other four will be ordained as transitional deacons. God willing and the people consenting, the four transitional deacons will be ordained as priests next year.Thomas Thao, one of the four being ordained as a transitional deacon, is very excited about this opportunity, especially knowing that he’ll be a positive role model for others in his community.“This is very meaningful to me because I’ll be able to share my gifts and talents with others,” said Thao.He added, “This opportunity leads me on a new journey and will allow me to continue growing my faith while sharing my experiences with others.”The six ordinands include three women and three men; Bao Moua will be the first Hmong woman to pursue the priesthood.“The most exciting thing about June 20, 2015, is that for over 40 years of the Hmong people being in the U.S., the Episcopal Church will be ordaining its first Hmong majority Shared Ministry Team, three of whom are women,” said Moua.“This is history in the making, and with God’s help we have only begun our mission,” she added.In addition to the six Hmong being ordained, one Anglo from Holy Apostles will be ordained as a vocational deacon. The seven ordinands from Holy Apostles, in addition to seven others who will be commissioned for lay ministries in December, will make up Holy Apostles’ Shared Ministry Team. They will be leading worship, pastoral care, mission and evangelism, and Christian formation; they will also collaborate with the Bishop’s Committee.The Shared Ministry Team has been in formation for three years. Instructors have been drawn from local seminaries in addition to clergy, lay instructors, and missioners from the Episcopal Church. All instruction has been interpreted from English to Hmong to make the program accessible to team members who are not fluent in English.The team will be working with the support and collaboration of The Rev. Letha Wilson-Barnard, Holy Apostles’ Vicar and Mentor to the Team, and The Rev. Toua Vang, Associate Priest of Holy Apostles and Hmong/Southeast Asian Missioner of Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries (EAM).The Bishop’s Committee and Shared Ministry Team have already begun meeting regularly to develop the mission and vision for Holy Apostles. This Shared Ministry Team provides new opportunities for ministry, mission, and evangelism to the Hmong community in Minnesota, the United States, and the world.

Photo: Anglican Archives[Lambeth Conference Company] The archbishop of Canterbury has announced revised dates for the 15th Lambeth Conference. Hosted in Canterbury, Kent, the face-to-face conference will be planned for July 27 – Aug. 8, 2022 (with the official conference ending on Aug. 7 and departures on Aug. 8).The conference has been rescheduled from the original 2020 dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference organizers will continue to monitor the implications of COVID-19 and follow official health guidance in the months ahead.With the theme of “God’s Church for God’s World: Walking, Listening and Witnessing Together,” the conference will focus on what it means for the Anglican Communion – shaped by the five marks of mission – to be responsive to the needs and challenges of a rapidly changing world in the 21st century.This will be the first Lambeth Conference to meet both face to face and virtually. As well as the meeting in Canterbury in 2022, the Lambeth Conference will now be planned as a conference journey that runs in phases before, during and beyond the face-to-face gathering.Starting in 2021, the focus of phase one will be on introducing some of the major themes and strategic pillars of the conference program. The conference community of bishops and spouses – and wider Anglican audiences – will be invited to take part in the Lambeth conversation in different ways. This will be facilitated through a combination of online, regional and intraregional meetings and supporting resources.With bishops and spouses invited from 165 countries of the Anglican Communion, the conference community represents a diversity of cultures and Christian tradition. The virtual phase of the conference will give more time to meet one another, discuss conference topics and share insights and experiences from the various provinces and church communities.It will also ensure that the use of conference resources and planning for future outcomes in the life of the Anglican Communion can be as effective as possible.A working group is being appointed to shape the conference journey, comprised by representatives from around the Communion. These are the bishop of Penrith, the Rt. Rev. Emma Ineson (who also serves as a member of the conference design group); the Rt. Rev. Anthony Poggo (the archbishop of Canterbury’s adviser on Anglican Communion affairs); the Rev. Joseph D. Galgalo (vice chancellor and associate professor of theology at St. Paul’s University in Kenya) and the bishop of Amritsar, the Rt. Rev. Pradeep Samantaroy (The Church of North India – United). The group will work with the archbishop of Canterbury and wider conference teams to construct an engaging program relevant to key issues in the world and the life of the Communion.Phil George, the CEO of the Lambeth Conference Company, said:“With the message of ‘God’s Church for God’s World,’ it’s vital that planning for our meeting of bishops and spouses responds to the new world we find ourselves in since COVID-19. Despite the challenges and disruption that the pandemic has caused, we’ve also seen huge creativity and adaptability as churches have started to meet virtually. The opportunities that technology provides for online meeting and engagement have opened up new ways for us to connect, pray and be community for one another. I’m looking forward to collaborating with the working group to help develop and deliver the Lambeth Conference conversation.”The timetable and further details for the pre-conference program will be released in 2021.For more information, visit lambethconference.org/dates.

Photographs 2011 Photographs: Mitch MauricioText description provided by the architects. Designed for a newly married couple, this townhouse is a tribute to the Filipino spirit. Buensalido Architects, a Manila-based archietctural design firm that pushes for contemporizing Filipino architecture, found the aesthetic expression of this design intent through triangles, an abstracted representation of banderitas (or flaglets) that one would commonly see in local fiestas and festivals. As a country, the Philippines has one almost every day.Save this picture!© Mitch MauricioRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensPorcelain StonewareCosentinoSurfaces – Dekton® Chromica CollectionIt is a manifestation of the Filipino’s optimism and positive outlook in their lives, always knowing how to smile no matter how bad their situation is. This was captured with the different bursts of colors within the house, achieving a sense of vibrancy, festivity, and positivity. Save this picture!© Mitch MauricioThese conceptual ideas were physically implemented in a contemporary and innovative way: the banderitas and triangles on the interior surfaces were achieved with a CNC milling machine, therefore attaining precision in its production and avoiding human error. Light fixtures were located above the cutouts, creating an ever-changing pattern of shadows, depending on how many lights are turned on. A certain kind of material honesty was aimed for, so for the concrete flooring for example, was kept as is, applying a special kind of lithium-based sealant to achieve a smooth, terrazzo-like effect.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSan Francisco 2012 Architecture and the City FestivalArticlesAl Hilal Bank Commercial Tower / Goettsch PartnersArticles Share Projects Area: 180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Mitch Mauricio+ 41 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/270396/the-house-buensalido-architects Clipboard Philippines Architects: Buensalido Architects Area Area of this architecture project Houses ArchDaily The House / Buensalido ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThe House / Buensalido Architects CopyHouses•Manila, Philippines The House / Buensalido Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/270396/the-house-buensalido-architects Clipboard Year: “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBuensalido ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousingManilaPhilippinesPublished on September 11, 2012Cite: “The House / Buensalido Architects” 11 Sep 2012.

By admin – April 3, 2018 With the first Ector County Independent School District Bond Advisory Committee meeting set for April 9, Superintendent Tom Crowe reviewed the need for a tax ratification election and bond election at a special workshop meeting Tuesday.Crowe said a little more than 100 invitations had been sent out for the gathering, which is set to start at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at George H.W. Bush New Tech Odessa, 300 E. 29th St. The meeting will start at 6 p.m.Crowe said a TRE and bond would be separate this time. They were together in the November 2017 election. He added that a TRE is needed first.In November 2017, a $291,172,291 bond and a tax ratification election failed and some of the current needs were included in that bond.On the bond issue, 61.81 percent of people voted against the bond and 38.19 percent voted for it, or 4,442 against and 2,744 in support.On the tax ratification election, 60.04 percent, or 4,312 people voted against it, and 39.96 percent, or 2,870, were for it.The district’s tax rate of $1.15 per $100 valuation is made up of maintenance and operations and interest and sinking, or what goes to pay the debt.The TRE Crowe discussed would add 8 cents to the district’s $1.04 maintenance and operation rate, which would make it $1.23 per $100 valuation. As proposed, an election would be in September.A bond election would be considered for May 2019, which would give the community more time to consider and learn about district needs.The tax ratification election would generate about $11 million, Crowe said. If it was conducted in September, the TRE election would have to be called in July.TranCend4, a company specializing in bond elections was hired to help guide the community through the process. The cost is $26,000, plus expenses including flights, car/Uber, hotel and meals.Crowe listed many needs the district is facing such as roofs damaged in hail storms in 2016 and 2017; employee raises; new buses; fiber costs; restoring campus allotments; increased costs at Falcon Early College High School; the first year of the Bonham Middle School turnaround plan; controlled access to campuses; and more portable classrooms, among other items.He said some needs could come from the TRE, others could be paid for with a bond, or a combination of both and others would have to come out of the budget.Board President Carol Gregg said the district has to do a better job of selling the tax increase to its employees.Board Vice President Doyle Woodall said he thinks the district should always stay upbeat and positive, but the public needs to be aware of what’s going to be cut without a TRE.Trustee Delma Abalos said Crowe admitted some of the mistakes made in the 2017 bond election. She said the district needs to talk to the employees to find out why they didn’t support the bond and TRE previously and suggested conducting a survey that could be answered anonymously.“I find it hard to believe they didn’t want a raise. There must be some other reason they didn’t vote for it,” Gregg said.Trustee Steve Brown said the district needs to focus on the community and find out why they have such a complacent attitude toward education in Ector County. He said the same was true with board elections and the city council.Crowe said he would begin talking to the “powers that be” in the community, try to get their support and come back to talk to the board.The board also discussed rezoning elementary and middle schools. Many campuses are overcrowded district-wide, Crowe said. “In most cases, we’ve got no place to find relief other than portables,” he said.He went over scenarios to relieve Jordan and Buice, for example, but said he has to figure out how many students would have to be moved to different schools.Abalos stressed having meetings with the community to go over proposed changes before they’re made.Plans are to add sixth grade to Cameron Dual Language Magnet and discussion has started on adding sixth grade at Austin Montessori Magnet.Crowe said he would like to pair Zavala and Travis and Noel and Pease elementary schools.For the first year, Zavala would be prekindergarten through first grade the first year and Travis would be second through fifth grade.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Print This Post Previous: REO Cash Sales Share Rebounds From Seasonal Decline Next: DS News Webcast: Monday 4/13/2015 About Author: Brian Honea Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Two Republican lawmakers have written a letter to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) director asking for the delay of the combined Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) mortgage disclosure forms.TILA-RESPA is scheduled to go into effect on August 1, but U.S. Representatives Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri) and Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) have asked the CFPB to hold off until January 1 in a letter recently sent to the Bureau’s director,Richard Cordray. The Congressman said in the letter that summertime is one of the busiest for mortgages and that the enactment of TILA-RESPA could be disruptive to home sales and loan closings.The rule was first created out of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act of 2010, and it was finalized late in 2013 following a comment period and months of education, training, and preparation on the part of lenders. The preparation has continued as many lenders are taking all the necessary steps to make sure they have all the systems in place and are in complete compliance with the new rule.Luetkemeyer and Neugebauer asked in their letter for a five-month “hold harmless” period from August 1, 2015 until December 31, 2015 to “help ensure consumer confidence and stability in the nation’s housing market.” The Congressmen said in their letter that the proposed five-month “hold harmless” period will give all those involved with the mortgage loan closing process more time to educate themselves on the rule and will give the CFPB more time to address any issues that might arise. They asked for Cordray to respond by April 17.Both Luetkemeyer and Neugebauer are chairmen of subcommittees in the House Financial Services Committee. Leutkemeyer is the head of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee, and Neugebauer is chair of the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee.
