Advisers say migrant cap needs rethink

first_img whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ PLANS to cap the number of skilled migrant workers coming to the UK will only go a small way to achieving new immigration targets and are likely to damage economic growth, a government advisory body warned.The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) was asked by Home Secretary Theresa May to recommend limits on the number of skilled workers entering the UK from outside Europe. Its latest report says that if government targets to return immigration levels to “the tens of thousands” from 196,000 by 2015 are to be achieved, the number of workers from outside Europe will need to be cut by between 13 and 25 per cent next year.But in his foreward, MAC chair Professor David Metcalf stated: “It is not possible to reduce net migration to the tens of thousands by limiting work-related migration alone. This goal can only be achieved by also cutting net migration under the study and family routes.”The professor noted “widespread concern among employers regarding the impact that limits on migration could have” and suggested that alternative methods to capping workers may be more practicable. “Limits on work visas could be eased if, for example: the study and family routes bear more than their pro-rata share of any cuts.”The 300 page report gave support to businesses concerned by the economic impact of a stringent cap on migrant workers. He said: “[Skilled] migration makes a small but positive contribution to GDP per head. Such effects will accumulate over time and become more significant.”Baroness Jo Valentine, chief executive of business lobby group London First praised the bold nature of the report. She said: “It is quite brave of them to point out, more than once in the document that the economic case argues against capping these highly skilled individuals.” Thursday 18 November 2010 8:40 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL Advisers say migrant cap needs rethink Share Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

GVC online soars despite retail woes

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Finance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter GVC online soars despite retail woes Finance Online takings up by a quarter in Q3 thanks to World Cup boost Ladbrokes owner GVC was boosted by online sales and England’s Fifa World Cup success in the three months to September 30.Total group net gaming revenue rose 14% in the quarter, according to Thursday’s Q3 results announcement, and has risen 10% so far this calendar year to date compared to 2017.The performance was aided by online net gaming revenue rising by 28% year-on-year, driven by a 31% increase in online sports betting. Ladbrokes.com was up 23% and Coral.co.uk  up 29%, in what GVC described as “very pleasing” NGR growth with sports wagering 9% ahead.While digital performance was positive, GVC’s UK retail was down 2% year-on-year. European retail was, however, up 24% year-on-year with growth in all regions. The company said it recorded considerable trading increases even discounting the impact of the World Cup, which finished in mid-July.GVC also said the integration of Ladbrokes Coral, which it acquired earlier this year, was “progressing well”.Discussing the performance, CEO Kenneth Alexander said: “The group’s performance in the quarter was very pleasing with momentum continuing across the Online and European Retail divisions.“As highlighted in our H1 results, we will look to consolidate our position in markets where we are taking market share through the reinvestment of excess returns, and the board is confident in its full year expectations.”GVC added that the “imminent” launch of its New Jersey app on iOS will trigger a “full playMGM marketing campaign” in the state.Alexander added: “We believe our sports-betting joint venture with MGM is best placed to be the market leader in the US and we have taken the first steps on that journey with the soft-launch of our sports-betting app in New Jersey.”Meanwhile, CFO Paul Bowtell is to leave the company in March to take up a role with Alchemy Partners. He will be replaced by Rob Wood, currently CFO of the Ladbrokes Coral UK Retail business, which is GVC’s largest division. 18th October 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Photo courtesy of Guatemala Youth Initiative[Episcopal News Service] On March 13, 2020, two days after the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic, the staff of the Guatemala Youth Initiative began to strategize ways to continue to provide contraception, sexual education and maternal support to teens and young adults living around the largest landfill in Central America.Led by Episcopalian Greg Lowden, the Guatemala City-based, Episcopal-supported nonprofit worked with its local partner organization, WINGS, to conduct telephone-based rather than in-person consultations. They set up contactless protocols to allow beneficiaries to pick up birth control at the youth center and clinic. GYI also moved its educational and parenting programs to online and instant messaging platforms.“It could have gone either way,” Lowden, the executive director, told Episcopal News Service, meaning the pandemic could have forced GYI to shut down operations. Instead, in satisfying a need, it has “given us a chance to expand our programs during a time when youth need them most. [Nearly] all teen mothers are forced to drop out of school, and many of them face the challenge of caring for a newborn without support from their family or the baby’s father. Access to contraception is critical for young women.”Guatemala has one of the highest adolescent birth rates in Latin America, which as a region ranks second in the world. In 2019, 7,992 girls ages 15 to 19 and 183 girls ages 10 to 14 in Guatemala City and its suburbs became mothers. In 2019, GYI and WINGS provided over 689 consultations for various forms of contraception, preventing an estimated 325 unplanned pregnancies. In 2020, despite the pandemic’s disruption of services, reproductive education and contraception prevented an estimated 400 unplanned pregnancies. In 2021, Lowden estimates this number will increase to between 800 and 900. These pregnancy prevention estimates are calculated using the Marie Stopes International Impact 2 instrument.Teen mom with baby receiving a grocery store card from Guatemala Youth Initiative to cover food and infant care products at the beginning of the pandemic. Photo courtesy of Guatemala Youth InitiativeOn Jan. 29, GYI opened a second, temporary clinic in a community on the landfill’s northern end. It opened its first youth center and clinic in 2018 on the southern perimeter of the landfill, where day laborers scavenge for scrap and recyclables. The laborers and their families live in 12-by-12-foot shacks constructed primarily of corrugated metal. Family dysfunction typically associated with extreme poverty — including drug use and physical and sexual abuse — is widespread, and teens often spend their time outdoors.A government-imposed lockdown implemented early on to control the pandemic had its intended effect, with deaths and positive cases relatively low in Guatemala compared with the rest of the region, but the lockdown itself exacerbated existing problems. For instance, when local officials suspended day laborers from working in the landfill, residents in surrounding communities experienced increased food insecurity and the abuses intensified, said Lowden.To meet families’ immediate needs, Lowden turned to Episcopal donors and supporters to ask for funds to provide food and water to 500 people.Lowden reached out to supporters in the Diocese of Virginia, his “home base.”“Our Episcopalian supporters are usually the fastest to provide help during an emergency. Thanks to them, we were able to get food into homes immediately after launching our relief campaign,” Lowden said.By mid-July, GYI’s clinic reopened and began offering long-acting reversible contraception, as well as other methods of birth control. Demand soared to about 90 patients that month, up from the previous record of 50 or so patients in January and February, before the pandemic, though schools have remained closed and educational workshops have remained online.“Now, we’re waiting on the government response and what they’re going to do with schools to figure out how we’re going to move forward” with workshops for students, Byron Paredes, an educator and coordinator with GYI, said.At first, shifting in-person consultations and programs to an online format presented a challenge.“[They were the] same topics, but totally different workshops because the way we do things is really hands on, and we had to adjust all that to working online,” Paredes said. “[But] the response is really, really positive. Our youth leaders kept referring people, and once they joined, they kind of remained loyal and kept signing up for the next [workshop].”The shift online led to other modifications as well. For example, staff had to make sure the 81 participants in their Young Mothers Support Program (many of whom are teens) and 45 teen leaders had access to smartphones and enough data.“The main issue we were seeing was data,” Lowden said. Without the costs of in-person workshops, GYI could provide mobile data to those in need and also began to share prerecorded, age-specific parenting videos weekly via WhatsApp, which grew its Young Mothers Support Program from 43 to 81 participants, he said.GYI’s online classes – sometimes featuring a pediatrician, nutritionist or early childhood educator – cover parenting skills such as bonding, health, nutrition, and cognitive and motor development. They have been so popular that GYI plans to continue providing online workshops, even after in-person activities resume.“Reaching more young mothers means more children are likely to have a happier and healthier life despite the many hardships faced in their community,” Lowden said. “Many young mothers near the landfill face the challenge of parenting with no guidance or support. The pandemic has made it dramatically harder, so having online classes and videos has been extremely appealing to the moms. They are able to take advantage of time at home towards early childhood development instead of being overwhelmed by motherhood.”– Heather Beasley Doyle is a freelance journalist, writer and editor based in Massachusetts.

In the North of Amsterdam an old and decayed brick house has been replaced by a complete new and sustainable house with timber cladding on the walls and roof. The old house was very limited in gross area and volume. With ultimate stretching within the context of the current allocation plan, Chris Collaris Architects has made a design for a new house. The new house still has a relatively small ground floor area (60 m2) but its’ inside volume has a significant increase and a much more spacious feeling.Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeThe roof lines were bound to restricted heights. By cantilevering the lower parts outside the main building volume, the upper level of the house increases. A house with a high ceiling on every floor level and an extra attic is the result of this design feature. The extra win is a dry walk along the North facade while walking underneath the cantilevering roof part towards the entrance.Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeThe design of the house is based on the passive building technology. The facades and roof are built with sandwich panels with high density insulation and all connections with the window frames have been sealed double. The facades and roof parts are finished with black timber cladding of wax conserved pinewood. The building system with a steel skeleton and sandwich panels is very uncommon for its’ use in single private housing. It is much more common in use for large factory halls with less precise building details. In this house the building system has been altered and tailored in such a specific way that the reference to its’ characteristics being used in large factory halls completely has vanished. Save this picture!Floor PlansIn detail, all edges, corners and joints in the exterior have been made as minimal as possible. Very small incorporated gutters at the roof edges cause a water curtain in heavy rainy weather. A flower window cuts through the wood cladding of the front facade and the bathroom window cuts through the wood cladding of the roof. Black solar panels are positioned exactly within the roof cladding, and the roof edges are clad with the wax conserved and black painted pinewood too. Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeThe old and decayed brick house has not vanished completely. Roof tiles and wooden floors have been used in the garden and the inner brick layer of the old house has been used again in the interior of the new house. A central positioned core with bricks and a staircase with cabinets made of birch multiplex divide the living spaces into living, kitchen and a diner room. A central and light void alongside the stairs maximizes the interior space of the ground floor.Save this picture!© Tim van de VeldeProject gallerySee allShow lessHow a Norwegian Infrastructure Project is Using Virtual Reality to Improve Public Bu…ArticlesAaron Florian Housing / ADNBASelected Projects Share Photographs ArchDaily 2017last_img read more
