The agreement covers both the 2019 and 2020 editions of the event, which is a regular feature on the European Tour, one of the event series operated by the PGA Tour. The competition, which will now be known as the Betfred British Masters, will this year take place at the Hillside Golf Club in Southport, England. “Betfred has a strong track record in sponsorship across a number of sports, including rugby, football, snooker and horse racing, and we are thrilled the British Masters will now be their first golf sponsorship,” European Tour chief executive, Keith Pelley, said. Betfred chief executive Fred Done said the decision by last year’s winner, Tommy Fleetwood, to stage the event in the north west of England help influence the deal. Betfred’s headquarters in Warrington is around one hour away from the Hillside Golf Club. Done said: “I’ve been looking at golf sponsorship for some time so when the British Masters, with Tommy Fleetwood hosting in the North West, was put to me it seemed the perfect opportunity to get involved.  “I am absolutely delighted to see the Betfred brand alongside such a high profile event in the sport of golf.” The deal has been made possible after the PGA Tour this week announced that it is expanding its sponsorship programme and will consider gambling companies as official marketing partners for all six of its tours. The PGA Tour will allow its tournaments and players to seek sponsored deals with such entities, having previously prohibited any association with gambling companies. In the US, the revised rules will be limited to larger casino companies and daily fantasy sports brands, and will not apply to companies with a primary focus on sports betting, such as bookmakers William Hill and Bet365. However these companies can be considered for such deals outside of the US.Image: Pexelslast_img read more

Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) is famous for its luxury fast cars that star in James Bond films. In the past couple of years its share price has also been moving at high speed – in reverse. Having tumbled to 65p, it might look like a bargain for such a well-known name. Is it a share to buy now for me?Looking under the bonnet, there are a couple of things which make me think that for me, Aston Martin might not be a bargain share to buy right now. Not only do these factors apply to Aston Martin, I find it useful to remember them when looking at any possible shares to buy now.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…The company has been piling on debtWhen deciding what shares to buy, I look at information like a company’s earnings and profitability. But it is also important to look at a company’s balance sheet. The balance sheet shows its assets and its liabilities. That matters because a company with surplus cash is often stronger than one whose income is used to service large debts.Aston Martin Lagonda has been borrowing a lot lately. Last month, it issued an eye-watering £1.2 billion in new debt. It had to pay heavily to do that, with a payout of 10.5% interest on its newest bonds. Such a high interest rate suggests lenders are nervous about the company’s financial health.Debt matters when assessing a share to buy now for me. Large debts give companies less leeway to pay dividends to shareholders. Even if Aston Martin Lagonda does make profits in years to come, they’ll need to service the large debt pile.Aston Martin shareholders have been heavily diluted alreadyFor a struggling company like Aston Martin Lagonda, another thing to watch is whether it is diluting existing shareholders. This is a common practice when a company needs to raise funds. One way to fund their needs is selling more shares. But that can mean that existing shareholders are diluted – in other words, their existing shares reflect a smaller percentage of the enlarged share capital. That can negatively affect the share price. When looking at a possible share to buy now, I always look at the dilution risk.Aston Martin Lagonda floated in 2018, with 228 million shares on the market. But subsequent fundraising mean that there are now 1.8 billion shares in circulation. Shareholders have been heavily diluted already.A new model launch adds to the unknownsOne reason people continue to invest in the carmaker is that it has recently launched its first sports utility vehicle, the DBX. A new factory built in Wales especially for the DBX is operating at full capacity. That sounds promising for Aston Martin Lagonda.However, any major launch is a risk for a company. For example, demand may not have been forecast correctly or production kinks can take time to iron out. Aston Martin Lagonda’s finances already give it little room for error, so its heavy reliance on a brand-new model at this time just adds to the risk.So despite its low share price, Aston Martin Lagonda is not a share to buy right now for me.

Housing Is Healing—and Health Systems Can Help

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Why Florida Hospital is committed to ending chronic homelessnessBy Eddie Soler/ From Florida HospitalThis evening, when you retreat to the comforts of your home, more than half a million people across our country will find no such refuge.They’ll ride buses throughout the night not to reach a destination, but to ensure their safety. They’ll fight off mosquitoes in their makeshift tents. They’ll curl up on park benches and pray it doesn’t rain.Ignoring the homeless is immoral. It also guarantees a continuation of the vicious cycle that costs hospitals and our communities millions of dollars each year.No matter how excellent the care we provide, if our patients don’t have a home, they will continue to return to our hospitals.‘Housing First’In 2014, Central Florida leaders launched a campaign to end chronic homelessness by transitioning to the Housing First model, in which the chronically homeless are provided a home, wrap-around services, and case managers.This program intrigued us at Florida Hospital for both moral and financial reasons. After much evaluation, we donated $6 million toward the Housing First initiative.The figure pales in comparison to the uncompensated care we provide the homeless, as we found when we identified 100 homeless Central Floridians who most frequently used our emergency department from March 2014 to April 2015. Combined, their total hospital charges were $14.8 million.By using a Housing First approach, we can ensure that medical care for this population is coordinated and delivered in an appropriate setting.Importantly, once a person has a permanent home, he or she can qualify for Medicaid. So when that person does come to the hospital—and hopefully for an appropriate reason—we can be reimbursed.The $6 million will be spent over three years. Roughly $1.5 million has been spent so far, and we’re already seeing results.About 120 people now have homes. An additional 46 people have been assigned case managers and are receiving services in advance of being given homes. Though it’s still early, we’re seeing notable savings in the emergency department as well.Answering a Need—and a CallingFlorida Hospital is not in the housing business, and yet we consider our homeless initiative a model of care and an extension of our mission.It wasn’t long after our $6 million donation that Wayne Densch Charities, which for decades operated a transitional housing community in Central Florida, donated the development to Florida Hospital. We, in turn, partnered with Ability Housing, a nonprofit that provides affordable and supportive housing to the homeless, to transform the community into permanent housing.Hospitals have much to gain by ending chronic homelessness. What role will your organization play, and where do you begin?Track the impact of homelessness on your hospital. How many homeless patients do you treat? What is the cost?Educate community and business leaders about the impact of homelessness in your community.Leverage your role in the community and build partnerships with organizations that have shared goals.There is a cost benefit to ending chronic homelessness. Moreover, as a faith-based organization, we believe it’s what we’re called to do as a way to restore peace, hope, and dignity.Housing is healing.For more information, go here.Eddie Soler is chief financial officer, Adventist Health System–Florida Division, Orlando. Mama Mia 1 COMMENT Sadness of boy in the city Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 The Anatomy of Fear So what happens if Medicaid is axed? Will the hospital still try to house the needy homeless people that all too frequently have to access the ER because of their illnesses if the federal healthcare program for the poor is done away with?

FBI Warns of Farm Equipment Hacking Risks

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News FBI Warns of Farm Equipment Hacking Risks Facebook Twitter The FBI is warning agriculture against data breaches that may expose farming data through internet-connected farming equipment. The FBI, along with USDA, issued the warning last month. Together, the two agencies say farmers should be very mindful of the way they configure technology devices on the farm. The FBI suggested farmers should ensure that companies managing farm data, including digital management tools, application developers, and cloud service providers, develop cybersecurity and breach response plans. The FBI says so-called “hacktivists” may be targeting farmers as a way of protesting U.S. agricultural policies.A similar incident occurred last fall when an anonymous hacker leaked data of USDA employees to protest against Monsanto.
