The US-based firm is a rival to video screening sites such as Apple TV and Netflix. Industry sources say the media giants are raising the cash to further extend the reaches of the site, which is known for screening hit shows such as Family Guy and Glee before its rivals. A Hulu spokesman told City A.M.: “We do not comment on market rumour or speculation.”Hulu is second only to YouTube in terms of unique users in the US but still trails far behind its Google-owned rival. However, it pushes almost twice the number of adverts and reportedly hit revenues of around $100m last year.The video streaming industry is rapidly expanding as studios seek alternative revenue streams in the face of internet piracy. center_img whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite HeraldUndoTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading BlvdUndo Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

Rank Group reports marginal digital growth in Q3

first_img The Rank Group has reported marginal revenue growth across its digital business in the third quarter of its financial year, though group revenue remained flat due to a lack of growth across its land-based operations.Digital revenue at the Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casino operator increased by 2% on a year-on-year, like-for-like basis, during the three months to March 31. Rank only provided figures on the percentage changes in revenue for the period. Grosvenor digital gross gaming revenue climbed 6% in the quarter while net gaming revenue was also up by 15%, following what Rank described as “targeted action to manage bonus expenditure more efficiently”. Meanwhile, the Mecca digital business saw net gaming revenue increase by 10% in the quarter, with gross gaming revenue unchanged from the prior year figure.However, the operator’s land-based operations remained flat in Q3. The Grosvenor venues segment improved marginally following declines in both the first and second quarters, but failed to post any year-on-year growth for the period.Revenue from Mecca venues was down 1%, reflecting a similar performance in Q2, but an improvement on a 6% revenue drop in Q1. International venues revenue was flat for the third quarter.Rank noted that the results are posted on a like-for-like basis and do not include of club openings, closures, relocations and the contribution from YoBingo, which it acquired in May 2018.The operator also said as its transformation programme delivered the expected cost savings in the quarter and remains on track, management forecasts for the full year remain unchanged.Meanwhile, Rank has confirmed that Ian Burke is to step down as its chairman. Burke will not stand for re-election at the Annual General Meeting in October and the operator will now commence a search for a successor.Burke joined Rank as CEO in 2006, going on to become executive chairman in 2011 and then non-executive chairman in 2014.“I have enjoyed my time at Rank immensely and am extremely proud of what we have achieved as a company,” Burke said. “I have decided to step down as chairman in the knowledge that Rank has a strong management team and board which will take the business forward through its transformation programme.”CEO John O’Reilly added: “Ian has played a key role at Rank for many years. I would like to thank him personally for his invaluable support and counsel since I joined the company last year.”Burke’s impending departure comes after Rank last month also confirmed that Alan Morgan will leave his role as managing director retail on July 31 this year in order to pursue other opportunities.Morgan joined Rank in September 2016 as managing director of the Mecca Bingo business, before taking on responsibility for the entire retail estate in November 2017.

Focus on Ireland: Kidney departs, what happens next?

first_imgThe likes of Simon Zebo, Craig Gilroy, Luke Marshall, Paddy Jackson and Iain Henderson amongst others have all graduated from Ruddock’s ‘Wolfpuppies’ to full Irish internationals. And with others such Munster playmaker JJ Hanrahan, Connacht fullback Robbie Henshaw and current under-20 captain Luke McGrath all set to follow that route, Ruddock would be a considered choice on that basis [email protected]_dave End of the road: Declan Kidney’s contract was not renewed after four years in the Ireland hot-seatBy David BlairIT CAME as no surprise that the IRFU decided against renewing Kidney’s contract.  Their recent defeat in Rome, Ireland’s first Six Nations loss to Italy, left Ireland with only one win and languishing in fifth position. Had Wales started the championship as they ended it, with an impressive dismantling of England at the Millennium Stadium finale, and had France not malfunctioned then Ireland would have been the deserved recipients of a first Wooden Spoon since 1998.While it’s only natural that the head coach receives a fair share of flak when results aren’t going their teams’ way, Declan Kidney’s critics had plenty of ammunition to fire their #kidneyout campaign.  There has been a steady decline in Irish win percentages since they completed a historic Grand Slam in Kidney’s first season in the top job, with only four wins since the 2011 Rugby World Cup. And his recent decision to let Jamie Heaslip retain the captaincy despite the return of O’Driscoll was a bold move, one which raised eyebrows and ultimately failed to engender a new Ireland.Early favourite: Conor O’Shea is sticking with HarlequinsHis choice of fly-half to deputise for the crooked Sexton also attracted its fair share of opprobrium.  Having persisted with an ageing and floundering O’Gara on the bench for the opening two weekends, Kidney then handed Paddy Jackson the reigns against Scotland and for the remaining games, all the while ignoring the in-form ten in Ireland, Ian Madigan. Declan Kidney made the calls and was always likely to stick to his decisions, particularly regarding Jackson, but he never give the impression he was completely at ease with his choice.With Kidney sailing off into the sunset, speculation is already rife as to where his successor will come from, with Irish media and supporters pushing forward the early front runners. It was announced that current attack coach Les Kiss would lead Ireland on an interim basis, supported by Gert Smal and Anthony Foley, in North America.  Indeed, we may not know until after that tour whether Kiss is a contender for the role long-term but his elevation has bought the IRFU time to find a suitable replacement.Conor O’Shea was installed as the early favourite to succeed Kidney when the Six Nations campaign derailed, but the Harlequins director of rugby has since consistently reiterated his commitment to the London club. Even if O’Shea was available, his appointment would require a change in Ireland’s coaching structure.  The former London Irish fullback has accumulated his coaching experience in a directing capacity, a far cry from the hands on approach which Kidney preferred.  It’s too soon to rule him out of the reckoning but for O’Shea the timing doesn’t seem to fit.The same might be said for Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall, another former Irish international making waves in the Aviva Premiership. If the IRFU prefer an Irish successor then these two will surely be at the top of the list. Both are ambitious, who would certainly bring their own ideas to the job, but doubts remain whether either candidate can be tempted away from their current roles mid-contract.Man manager: Reds coach Ewen McKenzie is in the frameIt may be that the IRFU need to look further afield in their search for Declan Kidney’s replacement, which brings in the likes of Australian Ewen McKenzie, the bookies favourite at present.  The portents are promising, the former Waratahs and Stade Francais head coach has already stated his intention to leave his current post with the Queensland Reds at the end of this Super Rugby season. Fuelling this speculation is McKenzie’s stated desire to pursue international ambitions. Ireland could conceivably provide that stepping stone, and given his recent success turning around the Reds Super Rugby fortunes it may be that McKenzie has the credentials to halt the Irish slide.  The spanner in the works could be whether the former prop is holding out for the Wallabies job which may become available depending how Robbie Deans fares against the Lions in the summer.Other overseas names mentioned have included Jake White, but the IRFU are unlikely to break the bank for the former World Cup winning coach and he too is said to be interested in a seemingly coveted Wallabies job.  Graham Henry could be tempted as a short term solution if the IRFU aren’t looking beyond the 2015 Rugby World Cup, while Wayne Smith, a backs coach well known for an attractive running brand of rugby, would be a coup at the end of his Waikato Chiefs contract.There is a school of thought amongst Irish fans that an overseas coach with no ties to any of the provinces might be the way forward, but we’ll have to see if the IRFU are feeling progressive enough to take that risk or if they will prefer a known quantity, one they’ve already worked with – I’d wager for the latter.Making his point: Is Joe Schmidt ready to leave Leinster?In that is the case, Joe Schmidt, a double Heineken Cup winner with Leinster and already familiar with the ranks in the IRFU, becomes a leading contender.  They could do a lot worse than to convince the Kiwi to stay in Ireland for a few more years. If Schmidt has ambitions to coach the All Blacks then the experience will hardly do those aspirations any harm.  Schmidt, who also had successful spells as backs coach with Clermont Auvergne and Auckland Blues, has one year left to run on his Leinster contract but unlike O’Shea that obstacle is unlikely to deter the IRFU if they deem him the right man for the job.Alternatively the IRFU may choose to offer Mike Ruddock a path back to the top of international rugby.  Let’s not forget that Ruddock was a Grand Slam winning coach with Wales. Currently in his third season leading the Irish under-20s. In a similar fashion to Stuart Lancaster with the England Saxons, Ruddock also has the advantage of having worked with many of the up and coming stars of Irish rugby, some of which have already made their mark on the international stage.

Robert Franken, miembro del Equipo de Trabajo para ‘Reinventar’ la Iglesia Episcopal, le muestra al grupo una nube de palabras basada en las respuestas a la primera pregunta del proceso de participación del equipo de trabajo con la Iglesia. En la pregunta se le pide a los episcopales que reflexionen sobre su experiencia de la Iglesia, que elijan su “mejor recuerdo” y que lo expresen en tres palabras. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El próximo año por esta época, los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal estarán enterándose de los cambios y planes que el Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal (TREC por su sigla en inglés) recomendará a la Convención General. Sin embargo, entre ahora y entonces, le queda mucho que hacer a los 26 miembros del grupo, incluido que varios miembros expresaron la necesidad de conectar propuestas específicas de cambio a una visión audaz de lo que las estructuras denominacionales pueden ser y hacer.La labor del TREC comenzó después de que la Convención General en julio de 2012, por medio de la Resolución C095, pidiera que un equipo de trabajo “presentara a la 78ª. Convención General un plan para reformar las estructuras, el gobierno y la administración de la Iglesia”. El equipo de trabajo debe hacer público su informe a la Convención General a fines de 2014.Katy George, que comparte la labor de coordinar el equipo de trabajo con el Rdo. Craig Loya, le dijo al grupo, al comienzo de su reunión de los días 6 y 7 de diciembre aquí en el Instituto Marítimo, en las afueras de Baltimore, que muchos miembros del equipo de trabajo han expresado el sentimiento de que “les gustaría llevarlo adelante y cerciorarse realmente de que estamos produciendo algo fantástico”.George le dijo al grupo que ella piensa que será importante para el equipo de trabajo no sólo listar sus recomendaciones en su informe final, sino también explicarle a la Iglesia “nuestra visión holística en relación a cómo esperamos que la Iglesia avance en un nuevo rumbo, como un verdadera coordinadora interconectada, en lugar de una corporación”.Y, agregó, el grupo debe ser capaz “realmente de hacerle patente a la Iglesia cómo [las propuestas del grupo] cambiarán la manera en que gastamos nuestros recursos, cómo invertimos nuestro tiempo, cómo tomamos decisiones y trabajamos juntos en la misión”.Tom Little, miembro del Consejo, pareció anticipar el rumbo de la discusión para el resto de la sesión matutina cuando sugirió que en tanto el grupo toma en consideración propuestas específicas “podemos terminar modificando la visión”.Comprometerse con el proceso de participaciónLos miembros del grupo dedicaron la mayor parte de la sesión matutina del 6 de diciembre, que estuvo abierta al público, a discutir lo que han oído hasta ahora del “proceso de participación de la Iglesia”. El grupo creo un “instrumento de participación” que se publicó en su página web a mediados de octubre. Se puede descargar en inglés o español aquí, como un documento en PDF o PowerPoint, e incluye resúmenes, normas de participación, notas del coordinador [o facilitador], gráficas y otros materiales.El instrumento [de participación] está concebido para usarlo en cualquier reunión local, diocesana o denominacional y cualquier persona puede dirigir las discusiones que suscite e informar de los resultados al equipo de trabajo. Existe también la oportunidad de participar por Internet, mediante una serie de cuatro preguntas.El instrumento [de participación] está concebido para ayudar al equipo de trabajo a conocer “los recuerdos, esperanzas y sueños” que sus miembros tienen para la iglesia, según la página web del equipo. La fecha tope para enviar información es el 14 de marzoCerca de 190 agrupaciones e individuos han respondido por Internet a las cuatro preguntas, a veces con comentarios extensos. Todos esos comentarios aparecen al pie de la explicación del instrumento de participación en el enlace anterior. El equipo de trabajo ha recibido más respuestas por otros métodos, lo cual hace que el número de éstas se encuentre actualmente entre 260 y 280, según el Ven. Robert Franker, que, junto con el Rdo. Leng Lim, dirigió el equipo de trabajo durante un extenso debate de las respuestas recibidas hasta ahora.El equipo de trabajo necesita más reacciones, dijo Franken, la respuesta hasta la fecha “nos da un panorama, pero aún no es todo el cuadro, y queremos cerciorarnos de que la evaluación que recibimos es la correcta”.Algunos de los miembros del equipo de trabajo han respondido las cuatro preguntas que aparecen en la Internet, según los que alzaron las manos [afirmativamente]. Y no todos los que han coordinado a grupos que utilizaron el instrumento de participación han presentado los resultados al equipo de trabajo, apuntó Franken.“¿Dónde están los datos, señores?”, preguntó Franken a sus colegas.Sin embargo, muchos miembros del equipo de trabajo que han utilizado el instrumento de participación con algunos grupos informaron haber tenido profundas experiencias.Cuando Sean Rowe, obispo de la Diócesis de Pensilvania Noroccidental, utilizó el proceso durante una convención diocesana, “No pude lograr que la gente parara de hablar”, dijo él.El Rdo. Kevin Nichols dijo que comenzó a usar el instrumento de participación en su congregación, incluso con la clase de confirmación. “Todos los grupos se esforzaban en profundizar espiritualmente valiéndose de las imágenes que se presentaban”, explicó. “Al principio temía que tal vez podrá resultar demasiado simplista —que nuestras cuatro preguntas no eran lo bastante completas— pero con cada grupo percibí que se llegaba a una profundidad que ni siquiera imaginaba”.Miembros del Equipo de Trabajo para ‘Reinventar’ la Iglesia Episcopal comienzan el 6 de diciembre a estudiar los aportes de la Iglesia al comienzo de su reunión de dos días en el Instituto Marítimo de Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg para ENS.Durante la sesión del 6 de diciembre, los miembros encontraron algunas sugerencias de cambiar las estructuras de la Iglesia en tanto sopesaban algunos comentarios verbales así como los resúmenes de todos los aportes que el equipo de trabajo ha recibido. También escucharon algunas sugerencias generales y específicas provenientes de los propios integrantes del equipo.Esas propuestas se les presentaron como “provocaciones”, en palabras de Leng, en lugar de propuestas formales.“Como una Iglesia inclinada a la legislación, cuando alguien dice algo, pensamos ‘cielos, me sumo a esto o no; ¿es ésta una recomendación que puedo apoyar?’ [y] luego bajamos el registro de votación”, advirtió él. “En verdad estamos exponiendo ideas  para que ustedes las prueben, las experimenten; no les estamos pidiendo que las compren, estamos pidiéndoles que las alquilen… confiamos en que algo va a aparecer”.Joan Delano, consultora del equipo que trabaja pare el ClearLake Group como lo hace también Leng, resumió los aportes recibidos hasta ahora e hizo notar “un vigoroso sentido de la importancia de la liturgia, el ritual, la tradición y la historia” en los comentarios. “La fuerza del tema del misticismo resultó fascinante”, añadió.Una de las preguntas del proceso dice “¿Qué cree usted que la Iglesia debería mantener y qué debería abandonar?”. Delano, que se encontraba enferma y no pudo participar de la reunión, reportó que las respuestas en cuanto a “mantener” “fueron en su inmensa mayoría sobre la parte espiritual” de la Iglesia Episcopal y las respuestas en lo tocante a “abandonar” “fueron en su inmensa mayoría acerca de la administración y el gobierno”.“Los que respondieron, en una abrumadora mayoría, quieren reducir la burocracia y la carga administrativa” escribió ella. “Mi reflexión es que mantener el control consume muchísimos recursos, y que la gente percibe cuántos recursos podrían liberarse si la IE invirtiera menos en gobierno y administración”.Si bien Delano informó haber encontrado unos cuantos comentarios de personas con “una opinión muy radical”, la Rda. Marianne Ell dijo que su pequeño grupo de los miembros del equipo de trabajo percibieron “alguna auténtica agresividad odiosa y pasiva” en algunas de las respuestas a la pregunta sobre [qué se debería] abandonar.George le dijo al grupo que su experiencia con el equipo de trabajo la había llevado “a una formulación muy diferente del problema” que enfrenta la Iglesia. Dijo que ella había ingresado en el equipo de trabajo creyendo que el proceso de la Iglesia era “demasiado grande —costoso, enorme y difícil de manejar— y que eso forzaba a nuestro ‘producto’, nuestra misión, a ser demasiado pequeños”.De hecho, agregó ella, en total se gasta muy poco dinero en gobierno y administración y “en realidad toda la misión se hace en otra parte”.“Luego, lo que veo es que tenemos un proceso pequeño y estamos produciendo demasiado poco con él porque no estamos comprometiendo y facultando a toda la Iglesia”, afirmó. “De manera que nuestro trabajo no consiste en que ‘reduzcamos el proceso’, sino en que ‘reinventemos el proceso para producir un producto mayor’”.Mary Gray-Reeves, obispa de la Diócesis de El Camino Real, dijo que “el mayor activo” de la Iglesia es la gente que se sienta en los bancos “y lo que hemos dicho y hecho es que el valor creativo debe pasar a través de eso que se llama los CCAB [sigla en inglés de comités, comisiones, agencias y juntas de la Iglesia] y ésa es la mentira que se perpetúa en este sistema jerárquico”.George estuvo de acuerdo al decir “el asunto no consiste en reducir nuestra burocracia, consiste en repensarla de manera que desempeñe, naturalmente, un papel muy distinto; ése es el cambio radical que creo que debemos hacer”.El resto de la agenda de la reuniónEl equipo se reunió en privado durante la tarde del 6 de diciembre y estaba programado que comenzara a debatir posibles propuestas y a oír [el testimonio] de un subcomité sobre las implicaciones constitucionales y canónicas de cualquiera de esas propuestas. La sesión de la mitad de la jornada del TREC el 7 de diciembre será pública. Durante esa sesión, dijo George, el grupo decidirá sus pasos a seguir, entre ellos cómo comenzar a redactar su informe a la Iglesia. El equipo de trabajo espera emitir un comunicado sobre esta reunión —dirigido a la Iglesia— a principios de la semana del 8 de diciembre, dijo Loya a Episcopal News Service.La página del TREC en Facebook se encuentra aquí y aquí está en Twitter con @ReimagineTEC, donde el grupo está usando #reimaginetec. El equipo de trabajo se comunicó periódicamente a través de Twitter durante la mañana del 6 de diciembre, resumiendo la tarea en la que se ocupaban los miembros.La cobertura de ENS sobre la labor inicial del TREC se encuentra aquí.– La Rda.

ELCA approves Lutheran-Roman Catholic ecumenical document

first_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH [ELCA News] The 2016 Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Churchwide Assembly took several significant steps Aug. 10 moving forward the mission of this church as a church for the sake of the world.By a vote of 931 to 9, the assembly overwhelmingly accepted the “Declaration on the Way,” a unique ecumenical document that marks a path toward greater unity between Roman Catholics and Lutherans. Following the vote, an emotional assembly stood to applaud the momentous decision.At the heart of the document are 32 “Statements of Agreement” that state where Lutherans and Roman Catholics do not have church-dividing differences on topics about church, ministry and the Eucharist. More tentatively, the document also explores differences that remain.“Dear sisters and brothers, let us pause to honor this historic moment,” said ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth A. Eaton, addressing the assembly following the vote. “Though we have not yet arrived, we have claimed that we are, in fact, on the way to unity. After 500 years of division and 50 years of dialogue, this action must be understood in the context of other significant agreements we have reached, most notably the ‘Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification’ in 1999.” Rector Shreveport, LA Full article.
