BRITISH manufacturing has boosted the economy by growing for nine straight months, official data showed yesterday.The sector expanded by 0.6 per cent from September to October and was 5.8 per cent up on the same period last year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.The rate of growth was the fastest since March and twice as high as anticipated by economists.The sector accounts for 12.8 per cent of GDP, according to Howard Archer of IHS Global Insight.“The more forward looking elements of the surveys offer hope that the manufacturing sector will start off 2011 well,” he said.Overall industrial production for October was down by 0.2 per cent on the previous month, yet this was affected by extremely volatile industries such as mining, said analysts.Industrial production was up by 3.3 per cent against October 2009.Employment in the sector rose for eight straight months, according to the Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) released by Markit last week.And on Monday EEF data showed manufacturing output “remaining at record levels for the third quarter in succession”. “Manufacturers are ending the year on a high,” said EEF’s Lee Hopley.

Regions: Europe Southern Europe Malta EvenBet receives MGA casino supply licence Online casino Companies: Evenbet Gambling software supplier EvenBet Gaming has received an extension to its B2B Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) licence, allowing it to offer online casino games. EvenBet received its Class 3 MGA licence in May of this year. “Our business has grown exponentially this year following increased demand for our services and launching the EvenBet poker platform with several new clients,” Dmitry Starostenkov, EvenBet Gaming chief executive, said. “Securing this new MGA licence extension is an important move that allows licensed operators to gain access to our full product portfolio, including our casino games platform. EvenBet said these mini-games mean operators can “offer players a variety of mini casino games without needing to leave the poker table”. The licence allows EvenBet to offer its online casino platform with partners licensed in Malta. In addition, the supplier already offers a suite of casino “mini-games”, playable within its poker rooms, which it will now be able to launch with MGA-licenced operators. “Our casino and mini games functionality was built with player retention in mind, providing the ultimate tool that keeps poker players engaged in one place and gives them access to quality and complementary content,” Starostenkov said. EvenBet mainly supplies poker software, which requires a Class 3 licence as a peer-to-peer-game, to operators.

Since its inception, the FTSE 100 has experienced a number of bear markets, with the previous one being the financial crisis. It has recovered from all of them, which could mean there is investing potential at the present time.One investor who seems to be able to capitalise on low stock prices during bear markets is Warren Buffett. He invests in high-quality businesses for the long term, and does not listen to market noise. Following those principles could help you take advantage of the FTSE 100’s long-term recovery potential.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…Market noiseAt the present time, there is a considerable amount of panic among investors. They are understandably concerned about the performance of their portfolios after the FTSE 100’s decline. And since there is currently no end in sight to the coronavirus lockdown, things could get worse before they improve.Investors were also concerned about the short-term prospects for their portfolios in previous bear markets. While the FTSE 100 did experience further falls following its initial declines, it ultimately recovered from all of its downturns to post new record highs. This outcome may seem unlikely right now, but the track record of the index suggests that it is highly likely over the coming years.As such, ignoring market noise and investing in stocks could be a sound move. Warren Buffett famously invests while his peers are fearful. Doing so may not yield a high return in the coming months, but could lead to a strong performance from your portfolio in the long term.Fair valuationsIt is tempting at the present time to buy the cheapest stocks you can find ahead of a potential recovery. However, they may be among the riskiest opportunities available. In some cases, they may not even survive the current economic downturn to benefit from a potential recovery.Warren Buffett has always focused on the best value opportunities that are available. In other words, he aims to buy the best quality companies at fair prices. By considering both price and quality, it is possible to find the most attractive risk/reward opportunities in the FTSE 100. This may improve your returns, and also increase your chances of avoiding major share price declines in the near term.Moreover, the best businesses may be able to strengthen their market positions at the expense of weaker competitors. This may widen their economic moats, and enable them to enjoy higher returns in the coming years. Such companies may not be the cheapest around at the present time, but they are the ones that savvy investors such as Warren Buffett are most likely to buy. Through following his lead in this area, you could maximise the buying opportunities available today to boost your financial prospects.

Laid low: Gloucester have been down and out so far in the Aviva Premiership, but they’re at home in Round ThreeGLOUCESTER, IT is safe to say, have had a very poor start to the season, and while others look to Saturday’s games with ambition, Gloucester will just want to turn things around.On Friday, Director of Rugby Nigel Davies spoke out about the club’s current situation as the Aviva Premiership’s current bullies-in-chiefs Northampton Saints visit Kingsholm this Saturday.According to the coach Saints “will be coming here as strong favourites based on their past two performances and results. They will come here with a lot of confidence, and rightly so.”He’s back!: Toby Flood re-enters the frayThe worry for Davies is that after a red card for prop Nick Wood in the opening minute of last week’s eventual thumping from Saracens and a loss to last season’s strugglers Sale Sharks, the young team many had tipped to be pushing the big boys have been uncharacteristically flat.That being said, there is too much talent in the squad and too much rugby still to be played before Gloucester can be written off. Last week may have been a blip; it may not have been as bad as the stark facts and column scribblings suggest.“It is very difficult to judge last weekend,” Davies said. “In terms of spirit and commitment, there was plenty. But, in terms of the result, it was very difficult having played virtually the entire game with 14 men.“I was actually a little bit happier with the performance last Sunday than I was the week before. I’ve got no doubt that we are going to be a lot better than in the first game of the season.”There is a glimmer of hope for Gloucester with ruthlessly-booted Freddie Burns available and deputized by returning All Black Jimmy Cowan while the eight-week loss of Nick Wood may not be so keenly felt with Alex Corbisiero also missing from Saints, as he is rested. WORCESTER, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 14: Declan Danaher of London Irish during the Aviva Premiership match between Worcester Warriors and London Irish at Sixways Stadium on September 14, 2013 in Worcester, England. (Photo by Christopher Lee/Getty Images) The hope will be that the bullish runners of Northampton can be shackled by the kid on debut, lock Elliott Stooke, and the much-hyped Matt Kvesic. Ben Morgan still can’t squeeze into the starting team, though.This is the potential stand-out of Saturday’s games, the day after Worcester Warriors try to play a bit more rugby against a Harlequins side that has hopefully dried out after their close-fought match last week and Sale Sharks and London Wasps will be hoping to avenge recent losses, all under Friday night lights.Elsewhere in the league on Saturday, Leicester Tigers have picked an impressive side to play Newcastle Falcons with headline-magnet Manu Tuilagi in at centre, Ben Youngs at 9 and Toby Flood back from a brutal pre-season knock. With Lions Geoff Parling, Dan Cole and Tom Youngs on the bench this is a team with intent to right the wrongs of last week’s loss to Bath.Round two’s kicking saviour Rory Clegg is pulled in by the Falcons to replace Phil Godman but Danny Barnes falls out of the centres with an elbow injury. The North East’s finest may have a lot of repelling to do.Captain, my captain: DanaherSomeone will come out in the black and one will drop into the red this weekend when one-win-one-loss sides London Irish and Exeter Chiefs meet at the Madejski. Irish have hauled in loan-signing second-row Ian Nimmo to sit on the bench, while Declan Danaher bosses proceedings in the back-row and Fergus Mulchrone sits in the centre.Exeter move around little and will be hoping they can impose some confines to the game, shackling Irish and their in-form winger Marland Yarde while punishing the breakdown. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Want another antagonistic rugby move? Bath are starting Gavin Henson against the juggernaut of Saracens on Sunday, and Tom Heathcote starts at fly-half for the first time in this Aviva Premiership season, meaning big Gav has a bit more game time and form that could help him score some telling points…Will their be much re-jigging of the league after this next round?

The following is a leaflet distributed by Detroit youth activists in FIST — Fight Imperialism, Stand Together — at the Feb. 19 mass demonstration demanding water justice in Flint, Mich. On March 6 the two Democratic Party presidential candidates and nominee hopefuls, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders, will take part in a televised debate in Flint, Mich. Flint has been the subject of global media attention after it was revealed that the city’s residents have been continually poisoned by the water coming from their faucets.Flint, along with many other cities in the so-called U.S. “Rust Belt,” has been absolutely decimated by deindustrialization. These cities, primarily in the Midwest and especially in Michigan, were built from the ground up by the working class tied directly to the auto industry. Once hotbeds of militant trade unionism and a burgeoning revolutionary movement, they have been nearly destroyed by the closing of the vast majority of production facilities. Capitalism’s robotization, offshoring and union busting have left these cities devastated. Flint has a 40 percent poverty rate, official unemployment close to 10 percent (which is an underestimate) and 20,000 vacant homes caused by bank and tax foreclosures.The decision by the Democratic National Committee to host its debate in Flint is the height of shameless opportunism. Neither the Democratic Party as a whole and certainly neither Sanders nor Clinton have pointed fingers at the source of the crisis: the major banking institutions and the auto manufacturers. Sanders has called for the resignation of Gov. Rick Snyder, and Clinton has complained of his not requesting federal aid for the city. Neither would dare demand reparations from General Motors and finance capital for those who have been lead-poisoned, particularly the 8,000-plus children who will be permanently damaged. They are not calling for criminal charges against those involved in the poisoning and cover-up.Many in the Democratic Party rightly call for Snyder’s resignation, albeit for political gain, to regain the governor’s office. But if the criminal, anti-people Snyder were to step down and face jail time, would his successor, presumably a Democrat, be any less callous toward the working class? Would [that person] enact a jobs program to put people back to work with good wages to fix the roads, feed the hungry and educate our next generation? Democratic Gov. Jim Blanchard presided over GM’s mass plant closings, and [Democratic] Gov. Jennifer Granholm did nothing about the racist banks’ mass home foreclosures.The disaster of Flint and other cities is not an issue of Republican versus Democrat, but rather a fight between the multinational working class and the capitalist class which profits directly from its attacks against us. We need an independent and militant movement, based among the working class and oppressed, separate from the two major imperialist parties and capable of challenging capitalist class rule and its ability to exploit us and put our very lives in danger.Our goal must be a revolutionary movement with the power to overthrow those who deprive us of homes, decent jobs, food, health care, education and clean water. The resources exist, and it is the task of the majority to seize what we’ve built from the hands of the minority of exploiters who own it!Visit, follow and contact us at facebook.com/FISTdetroit, twitter.com/FISTdetroit and [email protected] thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
