All figures 2019 unless otherwise stated2019 started strongly, but a more subdued Q3 performance led us to reduce our FY growth forecast to 6% year-on-year. While we are yet to receive operator data for Q4, our analysis suggests a slight improvement in growth rates on Q3.Global GGR forecasts (see Chart 1 below) We forecast mid-single digit percentage year-on-year growth going forward, with 2019 GGR expected to come in at $5.3bn (up from $5bn in 2018), growing to $5.7bn in 2020 and reaching $7.2bn by 2024.The source of growth in 2019 has been an increase in daily average revenue per user (DARPU) rather than any meaningful increase in the user base.bV1sion’s comprehensive database estimates this to continue as the dominant driver in 2020 (+5.4% y/y), although it also expects a slight growth in DAUs (+0.9% y/y).We also expect Europe and Oceania to return to reasonable growth after a subdued 2019. However, we do not expect a return to double-digit growth rates, and operators looking to outperform this will have to do so by taking market share.Regional GGR split (Chart 2) In terms of geographical split, North America continues to dominate the social casino landscape, representing 71% of the entire market, with Oceania also having a strong presence with 17% of total global GGR in 2019, well ahead of Asia and Europe with 5%.GGR growth by region (Charts 3 & 4) Africa had the highest growth rate in 2019 of 14% year on year, albeit from a very low base, while Europe and Oceania saw very subdued growth (Chart 3).In terms of dollar contribution to GGR growth, North America continues to drive the market, increasing GGR by $231m year-on-year, representing 82% of total global GGR growth in 2019 (Chart 4). GGR by operator (Table 5 & Chart 6) Playtika remains the leading publisher in the social casino space, with the $1.46bn GGR it is on track to generate in 2019 representing nearly 28% of the global total, more than double that of closest competitor Aristocrat.GGR growth by operator (Chart 7) In terms of individual company performance in 2019, Scientific Games has been the outstanding performer among the major operators, following the IPO of its social casino business SciPlay.Although we’re yet to see Q4 figures, analysis of data provided by Mobile Action leads us to estimate full year GGR growth of c.15% for 2019.By contrast, Zynga continues to see pressure on its social casino GGR. Aristocrat is going through a period of integration of its acquisition of Big Fish Games, and is now running a dual strategy of focusing on non-casino social games as well as social casino. Top grossing US iPhone apps (Chart 8) With the largest individual market of the US Playtika’s Slotomania game continues to dominate the iPhone rankings, and the operator also has another three games in the top 10, underlining its position as the number one operator in the market.However, Jackpot Party continues to be a strong performer for Scientific Games and Aristocrat also maintains a number of games in the top 10.

Moving up: Murphy in action for the U20s in 2011Jordi Murphy “He scored a try for the Lions in 2009, in one of the warm up games (against the Cheetahs, below). He picked up the ball in his own 22 and ran the length of the pitch with it. I’d just finished school at that stage and was watching the game back home.“His general workrate and the way he plays are awesome. Though we don’t play in the same position, most people would aspire to play like that.” Sad to hear that Stephen Ferris has had to retire at the age of 28. What a beast of a player he was in his pomp.— Tom English (@BBCTomEnglish) June 4, 2014 Ulster at heart: Ferris was a firm favourite at Ravenhill, as shown in the video below Stephen Ferris was a huge force on the rugby pitch and is larger than life off it. Here are three Ireland players’ favourite memories of the Ulsterman THOUGH Stephen Ferris’s retirement felt like it was inevitable, due to the length of time he’d been kept on the sidelines by injuries in recent years, it was still a blow for rugby when the official announcement was made on Tuesday. A popular player both with his team-mates and the fans, the back-rower won 35 Ireland caps and toured with the 2009 Lions to South Africa before an ankle injury, sustained in November 2012, forced him into retirement. Here three Ireland players, currently in Buenos Aires preparing to play Argentina this weekend, recall their favourite Ferris moments… Back to back: Diack has played No 8 alongside FerrisRobbie Diack “Picking up Will Genia, and the ball, and running with him during the 2011 World Cup is my favourite memory of Ferris. I was watching the game back in Belfast. Playing with a guy like him is fantastic, and although we’ve played in the same position, I played alongside him for a bit when he was at 6 and I was No 8.“It’s a huge loss to the game. He’s an awesome guy who contributes a lot to the team camaraderie, a huge team player. A lot of us expected him to retire, and we know how hard he’s been working with the physios, but even so the announcement has made it feel real. It’s sad to see a player of his stature and age retire.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Old pal: Cave and Ferris met in 2005 in the Ulster academyDarren Cave“It’s hard to pick out just one memory of Stevie, but his comeback tackle (below) in the game against the Scarlets a few weeks ago is up there. I’d seen him work so hard over the 18 months to get back to fitness, so it was fantastic to see him back on the field. I’ve never seen one player get the reception like he got at Ravenhill that day.“Stevie will be missed as much off the field as he will on it. He’s a good friend and will remain one, he’s that kind of guy. He’s big, loud and funny, and if he’s in the room you know about it! For the last year I’ve been calling him Van Wilder, because he was injured for so long that he was just organising our team socials. In the new Ravenhill, he decorated our team room. He chose all the furnishings and got the pool table in.” 30 Minutes with Jordi Murphy is in the July edition of Rugby World. Click here to see what else is in the magazine this month.

[Episcopal News Service – Chula Vista, California] On Sunday, Feb. 16, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Archbishop Francisco Moreno, primates representing The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Mexico, respectively, signed a bilateral agreement, effectively moving the two churches into a reciprocal relationship.“This is a wonderful day and it may not make a splash in all the news media, but let the record note that peoples live together in the Americas, that people who share a common border, people who follow the way of Jesus – following in this Jesus – there is no border that divides us,” said Curry during a time for reflection in the service. “God created the land; human beings made the border. And so, as the old song says, ‘In Christ there is no east or west, in him no south, no north, but one great fellowship of love throughout the whole wide world.’“It is this fellowship of love following in the footsteps of Jesus that brings us together this day, and in Jesus Christ our friendship grows deep and it will last long. In Christ there is no border.”The agreement marks a transition in the relationship between the two churches, which dates to 1875. At one time, the church in Mexico was part of Province IX, which encompasses The Episcopal Church’s dioceses in Latin America and the Caribbean. In 1994, the Anglican Church in Mexico entered into a covenant agreement with The Episcopal Church and became an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion. The covenant, which included a financial stipend as the church in Mexico worked toward financial independence, expired at the end of 2019.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, right, and Archbishop Francisco Moreno embrace following the signing of a bilateral agreement between The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Mexico. The bilateral agreement replaces a 25-year covenant between the two churches and brings them into a reciprocal relationship. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service“The 25-year pact is coming to an end, but the friendship continues. It’s solid,” said Moreno in an interview with ENS. “This is a brand-new era in the Province of Mexico because we’re beginning a new chapter in our growth, as a culture, as our own idiosyncrasy in our own country. This [agreement] greatly benefits us because it helps us mature in our faith, and for the longest time, we’ve been friends across borders. The church right now is deeply committed to being autonomous. It’s looking for ways to provide for itself and to look for ways to continue programs with our own resources.”The bilateral agreement’s signing took place during a special Eucharist held in the afternoon at St. John’s Episcopal Church here in Chula Vista, a city just south of San Diego and slightly north of Tijuana and the U.S.-Mexico border. The site was chosen intentionally to call attention to the ongoing migration crisis unfolding along the border. The agreement’s preamble recognizes that, despite the political difficulties facing the United States and Mexico, the two churches are called to “share a ministry of prayer and collaboration through the gifts and talents we have to help us in mutual growth where we reflect the kingdom with our actions of justice, peace and love through service, education and the expansion of ministry.”All along the U.S.-Mexico border, Episcopalians and Anglicans are providing humanitarian aid to migrants and asylum-seekers by providing shelter, food, medical care, legal aid and pastoral counseling. In the last two years, as migrants and asylum-seekers have continued to arrive at the border, the two churches have increasingly shared resources and information.“Our two churches are tied together by a common history. We share a border. We basically live in the same land. The border was drawn by man, not by God. And so, while we are two peoples, we actually are all Americans, and therefore we are a common people,” said Curry during an interview with ENS in St. John’s courtyard. “It’s important, I think, for Episcopalians and for others here in the United States to know that, whatever differences or issues our government may have, that in Christ there is no east nor west and in him no south, no north.“And therefore, we join hands with our brothers and our sisters, our siblings, our friends in Christ, to do work of humanitarian concern, to do work that helps to right wrongs so far as we are able to do so, to join hands to follow in the way in the teachings of Jesus because his teachings and his way can overcome divisions of people. And if we can model that, then maybe our governments can, and that’s a message that our people need and, I trust, the people of Mexico as well.”Though largely symbolic, the Eucharist and agreement’s signing ceremony speak to the two Anglican Communion churches’ ongoing commitment to shared ministry, the fight for justice and mirroring the presence of God in the world, said the Rev. Glenda McQueen, The Episcopal Church staff officer for Latin America and the Caribbean.“The bilateral agreement speaks about our desire to be together as we bear witness in the world. Borders don’t divide us; borders don’t separate us; walls do not separate us. The Christian commitment goes beyond that, and Christians have found ways throughout history to respond to the call for justice, the calling to work with human beings and to walk with them in the different stages of their lives,” said McQueen in an interview with ENS. “As the agreement says in the preamble, ‘Although these are times of difficulty and conflict between the United States and Mexico, that does not stop the church.’ On the contrary, this is a time when the church is called together to work and to be the church.”San Diego Bishop Susan Snook welcomes guests to the Feb. 16 Eucharist marking the signing of The Episcopal Church’s and the Anglican Church of Mexico’s bilateral agreement. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceA 16-member bilateral committee with 10 representatives from the Anglican Church of Mexico and six from The Episcopal Church authored the bilateral agreement, which defines how the two churches will share resources and maintain existing relationships and form new ones.“It’s easy to think just in terms of our own selves and kind of get into our own little fishbowl, but the fact is we’re part of what is arguably the third largest group of Christians worldwide, the Anglican Communion,” said the Rev. Charles Robertson, the presiding bishop’s canon for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church. “This summer we will see the bishops of all the churches meeting together at the invitation of the archbishop of Canterbury for the Lambeth Conference. This only happens every decade or so, and it is a reminder to all of our churches, through our bishops, that we are not alone. … We do whatever is needed together to further the good work of the Gospel.”Along with Moreno, the Rev. Efren Valazquez Gutierrez, provincial secretary of the Anglican Church of Mexico, and Western Mexico Bishop Ricardo Gómez Osnaya represented the Anglican Church of Mexico.Along with Curry, Robertson and McQueen, the Rev. David Copley, the church’s director of global partnerships and mission personnel, San Diego Bishop Susan Snook, Arizona Bishop Jennifer A. Reddall and Rio Grande Bishop Michael Hunn represented The Episcopal Church.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

Paul Schlegel, AFBF public policy managing director, says the bill provides a path to legalization for agricultural workers, as well as their spouses and minor children.“It’s one of the elements that everybody in agriculture recognizes we have to deal with if we’re going to help get a solution for our labor issue. So, it deals with the current workforce in agriculture and it changes their status from undocumented to legal.”Farm Bureau supports the introduction of the bill, but Schlegel says it does not address the need for a guest worker program.“The particular piece of legislation deals with one aspect of it, and it’s an important aspect, but the other critical component is coming up with a guest worker program that works for all of agriculture, and all commodities, all regions, all times of the year. There’s nothing in the bill about that. But, they know that, and they’re willing to start working with people to see what they can put together on a guest worker program.”He says farmers and ranchers should contact their members of Congress to let them know we need a solution to agriculture’s labor issues.“They ought to follow the issue, they ought to get acquainted with the bill and let them know how it affects them. And get ahold of their policy makers to say look, the bill may not be perfect, but the issue needs to be addressed in the broad terms, and we hope this is the start to a dialogue that will get something produced that we all care about.”Source: AFBF SHARE AFBF Welcomes Introduction of Ag Labor Bill Facebook Twitter
August 16, 2016 – Updated on September 14, 2016 Kurdish reporter murdered, another killed while covering fighting RSF_en Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses Follow the news on Iraq Organisation to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a Kurdish reporter’s brutal murder on 13 August in Dahuk, in the northeast of Iraqi Kurdistan, and a TV cameraman’s death the next day while covering fighting between Kurdish forces and Islamic State near Mosul. Wedad Hussein Ali, a 28-year-old reporter for RojNews, a news agency that supports the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), was kidnapped and then murdered. According to local media reporters, he was abducted in the morning and his body was found at the side of a road shortly after midday with marks suggesting that he may have been tortured to death. Nevertheless, the motive is still unknown. The Dohuk police said they have opened an investigation. The murder was also firmly condemned by the UN secretary-general’s deputy special representative for IraqMustafa Saeed, a cameraman with Kurdistan TV, a satellite TV channel owned by the Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDK), was killed on 14 August while covering the fighting in the east of the city of Mosul (400 km north of Baghdad) between Islamic State and kurdish forces. He and Kurdistan TV reporter Hayman Nanqli, who was badly injured, were embedded with Kurdish security forces.RSF urges the authorities to do everything possible to shed light on these crimes and to ensure that those responsible for the violence are brought to justice.“Although journalists in Iraqi Kurdistan are often the victims of threats, intimidation, attacks and arbitrary arrest, little action is taken to render them justice,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk.“We remind the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) that media freedom constitutes one of the foundations of democracy and we therefore urge the KRG authorities to deploy the necessary means to protect journalists’ work.”Demonstrations were held today in Erbil and other Kurdish cities in protest against Ali’s murder. Friends and colleagues of Ali say he told them he had been threatened by members of the Asayish (the Kurdish security forces) and that he felt he was being followed.Kurdistan and Iraq in general are characterized both by violence against media personnel and by a significant level of impunity for those responsible for attacking or murdering journalists. Iraq is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
