Category: ghretnfqgevpepdg OECD index is pointing to growth

first_img Share KCS-content THE growth outlook for major industrialised economies is picking up, although big differences in momentum remain between countries, the OECD’s leading indicator for December showed yesterday.The Paris-based Organisation for Economic Development and Co-operation (OECD) said its December composite leading indicator (CLI) for 29 of its member countries rose to 102.8 from a revised 102.5 in November, pointing to stronger growth momentum.Japan, the United States and Germany were leading the charge, it said, with a more moderate outlook for Canada, France and Britain, and signs emerging of a downturn in Italy. It had previously given its OECD-area indicator for November as 102.8. Japan’s reading jumped to 103.9 from a revised 103.3 and Germany’s rose to 105.0 from 104.7. France’s indicator inched up to 102.3 from 102.2, while Italy’s reading slipped to 102.3 in December from 102.4 in November.The OECD revised down its recent readings for China, which is not a member of the club of industrialised nations, and said the CLI for December slipped to 100.5 from a revised 100.7 the previous month.“New data for China point to a downturn, reversing the tentative signs of regained growth momentum reported in last month’s assessment,” said the OECD.

Category: ghretnfqgevpepdg RITA tackles concerns about racetrack closures

first_img New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transitional Authority (RITA) appears to have confirmed that racing venue closures are likely, though stressed that this was to be handled fairly as part of the ongoing industry overhaul. Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Horse racing Horse racing Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 13th January 2020 | By contenteditor New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transitional Authority (RITA) appears to have confirmed that venue closures are likely, though stressed that this was to be handled fairly as part of the ongoing industry overhaul.In its latest update on the process to reform the country’s horse racing sector, RITA said that it and the wider industry acknowledged that the current track footprint was unsustainable.“We have too many venues for the size of our industry, and we haven’t got enough capital to bring all venues up to the right standard of safety and quality for participants and punters,” it said.“As we all know, this isn’t just an issue that’s been identified recently by John Messara,” RITA continued. “It was identified 50 years ago in the McCarthy Royal Commission Report from 1970; and is an issue we know we must address if we are to revitalise our industry.”However, it added, clubs were concerned about the potential changes to communities that would result from any closures. The Messara Report, the blueprint for the overhaul of New Zealand racing, recommended that 28 of the country’s 48 thoroughbred tracks should be shuttered.“With a number of RITA board members and management having been involved in the operation of a number of clubs, we have an acute awareness of the effort and contribution that grassroots volunteers have put into their venues, racing and the wider community over many years,” RITA noted.
It said that the Racing Industry Bill, which was filed in December, would ensure that the process of deciding which venues to be closed would be carried out in a fair and transparent manner.This will take the form of the Future Venue Plan, in which the government, with input from all racing codes, evaluates each of the country’s 48 racetracks. The review will take into consideration the club’s financial performance, as well as its industry return, and the local community’s engagement with its events.It will also consider the governance, its regional contribution as well as future potential for growth, and the alternative uses for the facility. Based on these factors, it will make a decision as to whether it should continue operating, or be considered a surplus venue.There is an appeals mechanism for the club to dispute the review’s finding. This will all be handled by the racing codes, with the government to step in if a compromise cannot be reached. This would see an independent reviewer appointed by the Minister for Racing, to adjudicate on the matter.This will be underpinned by government regulations, meaning the evaluation process will be the same for all locations. The actual criteria are yet to be decided, though they will be drawn up with input from clubs, with RITA appointing independent advisors to help with the process.“RITA believes that, overall, this bill supports the process of change the industry needs, and also ensures that where change is proposed, every club will be treated fairly and respectfully and have its position genuinely heard and considered,” the authority explaiend.“We believe the bill gives the industry the framework to address its venue issues, which have remained unsolvable for decades, in a structured and transparent manner.”The update on the potential venue closures is the latest detailed report by RITA on elements of the Racing Industry Bill to be released in the past week. On 10 January, it attacked suggestions that the bill did not guarantee increases in industry funding, arguing that the racing industry would receive NZ$14m (£7.1m/€8.4m/US$9.3m) in new funding in its 2021 fiscal year.The bill establishes TAB NZ as the successor organisation to RITA, as well as providing the legal framework for an overhaul of disparate elements of the industry. It followed the passage into law of the Racing Reform Act on 1 July 2019.This set out a range of new taxes, including new point of consumption and race field fees, as well as establishing RITA as the replacement for the New Zealand Racing Board.

These irresponsible and dangerous attacks have unleashed a torrent of violent reactions against this journalist, RSF said. Help by sharing this information September 5, 2019 – Updated on September 6, 2019 Israeli reporter hounded by Prime Minister Netanyahu IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Protecting journalists CorruptionPredators to go further News May 16, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts June 3, 2021 Find out more News At least three messages attacking Channel 12 were posted on Netanyahu’s Facebook page on 30 and 31 August alone, one of them directly targeting Guy Peleg. It was accompanied by a photo of him with the words “Fake news,” alluding to his publication of leaks from criminal investigations into alleged corruption involving the prime minister.“By participating in this way in a smear campaign against a media outlet and by targeting a particular journalist, the Israeli prime minister is helping to foment a climate of hatred against the media,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Comments and behaviour of this kind are not only appalling but also prejudicial to the electoral process and Israeli democracy as a whole.”The newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth has reported that Channel 12 had to assign a security detail to Peleg because of the threats against him on WhatsApp and other social networks. One of these messages said: “You are inciting hatred against Bibi [Netanyahu’s nickname], God will make you pay.”Netanyahu called for a boycott of Channel 12 on Facebook on 30 August, just hours after the electoral commission rejected Likud’s request for the TV channel to be banned from broadcasting further leaks from a corruption case in which he is allegedly implicated. The prime minister accused Channel 12 of “attacking Israeli democracy” and trying to influence the results of the parliamentary elections scheduled for 17 September.The prime minister’s son, Yair Netanyahu, has meanwhile been urging Peleg’s detractors to refer to him as “Pinocchio” instead of “Dumbo” in order to make fun of his physical appearance. In reaction, many journalists and hundreds of Israeli citizens have voiced support for Peleg by sharing the slogan “I am Guy Peleg” on social networks.According to the tally kept by The Seventh Eye, an Israeli NGO, Netanyahu and his son attacked Peleg more than 60 times on social networks from May to June, and attacked Channel 12 more than 140 times.Israel is ranked 88th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Police officer Samad Mustafa Abdullah pushed Omar violently and threatened him. The cameraman complained to the Kirkuk police chief. Yesterday, the security forces denied Al-Baghdadiya TV journalists access to the scenes of the series of explosions that had just taken place at hotels in the centre and west of Baghdad. Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan News The latest series of bombings in Baghdad, yesterday afternoon, were targeted at the city’s main hotels, which house many Iraqi and foreign news media. The offices of the Al-Hurra TV station were damaged and many journalists sustained minor injuries. IraqMiddle East – North Africa Here are details of incidents that have been brought to the attention of Reporters Without Borders in January alone: Police in the province of Maysan (365 km southeast of the capital) issued a decree on 7 January banning journalists from doing any reporting in public places – including photographing public buildings or organising meetings – without prior permission from the provincial authorities.
