Share whatsapp ECB bond purchases soar Monday 17 January 2011 9:05 pm SPAIN scrapped a long-term debt auction yesterday in favor of a bond sale via banks as highly indebted Eurozone states took advantage of more benign market conditions to lock in lower-cost borrowing.Belgium also said it would seek to issue a new bond, most likely for 10 years, through a syndicate of banks. Portugal has said it plans to place a syndicated bond this quarter.Spain sold €6bn (£5bn) of 10-year syndicated bonds at a spread of 225 basis points over mid-swaps, or 256.4 points over the German 10-yr bund.The news came as figures showed that market intervention by the ?European Central Bank (ECB) jumped last week, as the bank’s purchases soared to €2.3bn, its highest weekly total since mid December.The figures, released yesterday, confirm that the ECB, lead by its president Jean-Claude Trichet, has intervened heavily to prop up demand at Eurozone debt auctions. In the two weeks preceeding last, it bought €113m and €164m. The total value of bonds bought by the ECB now stands at €76.5bn.

In the second part of our feature on Kambi’s rapid growth, CEO Kristian Nylén and CCO Max Meltzer discuss DraftKings, retail and the future. Read part one here.“I think part of the reason for that perception is the great success we’ve had online,” Meltzer says. “Although when I was appointed chief commercial officer I looked at the different markets, the various dynamics and our approach to them and found that we needed to make a lot more of our retail product.”He says this was simply a case of showing ambition and communicating what Kambi could do in the retail channel. It had a product, one that had proved itself in heavily regulated markets, and it was simply a case of making potential US clients aware of it. Meltzer says translating their online technology into the retail sphere had enabled them to offer the same depth of markets, in-play quality, speed and presentation. While retail as a channel had slipped under the radar to some extent, it is firmly in the spotlight because the majority of US markets are currently adopting a land-based first approach.“Executing on-property was probably the one doubt we had about ourselves going into the US,” Nylén says. “But after what we’ve achieved in recent months, it shouldn’t have been a concern to us at all. I’m confident we now offer the leading online and on-property sportsbook in the US.”This confidence is born less of bravado than of having had the retail solution stress-tested within an inch of its life. In short order Kambi has worked with DraftKings to launch a retail sportsbook for its licensing partner Resorts, and simultaneously tested, then launched, sports betting for the Rivers (pictured below left) and SugarHouse (pictured right) casinos in Pennsylvania. “I believe the initial Resorts sportsbook hadn’t been performing well and they had seen the quality of product DraftKings offered online and decided to take the on-property equivalent,” Nylén explains. “Resorts set a pretty short timeframe to make the switch, which meant DraftKings and Kambi had to spring into action. We allocated top talent to ensure we could deliver on time. This helped the Pennsylvania roll-out, says Nylén.“We gained our license from the PGCB on 28 November and were up and running on 13 December, launching in two casinos simultaneously. Introducing two on-property sportsbooks on the same day was a challenge but it was one we met and the sportsbooks so far have been a great success.” Looking ahead, Nylén dismisses concerns that Kambi could be locked out of certain states following a rise in long-term partnerships between land-based and online operators. In recent months a trend of market access deals has emerged, such as Bet365’s 25-year partnership with Empire Resorts for New York State, and William Hill and The Stars Group pairing up with Eldorado Resorts. Kambi’s CEO argues that this requires the market entrants to pay prohibitively high revenue share agreements or give their new partners equity.“It also seems premature,” he adds. “You’ve got to consider it is still early days in the regulation process in the US; most states aren’t close to regulating or deciding how many skins they will allow establishments to have. “Take New Jersey: they have three online skins offering ample chance for market access. While that isn’t and won’t be the case everywhere, we’re taking steps to ensure that in markets such as single-skin Pennsylvania, and New York with its four commercial casinos, we are well‑positioned.”He points out that Kambi’s partners will provide it with routes into multiple states: “Combined with that, there will be states where numerous skins will be made available and where some have already paid a price for market access when they perhaps needn’t have done so.”Nylén also warns the US casinos against rushing into deals.“From our perspective, what we are increasingly seeing from US operators is the desire to protect and grow their brand in their respective markets,” he says. “Unfortunately for some, they’ve come to this realization too late and are starting to regret their earlier decisions perhaps blinded by short-term share-price gains – particularly as they begin to see how the Kambi sportsbook stacks up against the rest of the market.”Kambi ends 2018 having shot ahead of many of the operators and suppliers that industry observers had tipped to make a bigger splash in the US. While some will view 2019 with a degree of trepidation, Nylén has the luxury of looking at the year ahead with a degree of excitement. The supplier is already preparing for the next 12 months with plans to open its first US office, staffed by trading, risk-management and commercial staff. “It’s thrilling to take part in such an environment with all the different combinations, the number of skins changing per state, the joint ventures we’ve seen, the focus on retail and the creation of some partnerships you may not have expected,” he says of the US market.Since May 2018, Kambi has evolved from a pretender to a serious contender. Few would bet against further success in the coming year. 11th January 2019 | By contenteditor Horse racing Email Address

TAGS: Highlight Wales missed a legit opensideBe it Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric, Ellis Jenkins or James Davies, the Welsh openside debate has become increasingly polarising. Nearly as polarising as whether you think Donald Trump is a blonde haired, melting ice-cream faced clown, or a massive blonde haired, melting ice-cream faced clown. However, on whichever side of the Welsh openside debate you fall, Saturday’s performance against England was hugely influenced by Wales not playing a specialist in that position. Wales were caught out on numerous occasions in the seven channel. In fact, after just 23 minutes Dan Lydiate had missed three tackles; a number he’d normally miss over 160 minutes.Donkey work: Dan Biggar was forced into one-on-one tackles with England’s big ball-carriersThe lack of a seven shutting down the ten yards on the openside, of first phase defence, meant that Dan Biggar was left making one-on-one tackles with players who are way over his kg limit. In those situations the seven would usually go low, with the lighter outside-half going high. The lack of defensive confidence in the seven channel also meant that Jamie Roberts was forced to defend more narrowly than he usually would, which resulted in him uncharacteristically missing some tackles on his outside shoulder. Wales will need a seven on the field and a seven on the bench against Sam Cane and Ardie Savea in New Zealand. Ellis Jenkins’ late addition to the squad, as a replacement for the injured Lydiate, may be the perfect opportunity to rectify the situation.Wales need two distributors in the backlineWales needing two distributors in the backline obviously isn’t a new observation, but the lack of it is becoming more obvious as the fixtures pass. Against England, as with virtually all Wales’ performances over the past 18 months, the over reliance on a straight, hard carry in the twelve channel is no longer enough to create space outside. On Sunday, the Welsh backline once again resorted to first phases dominated by a large carrier running ‘out to in’ – the idea being to hold the defence narrow and tight.Distributor: Scott Williams’ return to the backline is welcomeAnd whilst this tactic is effective, it can’t be the only option that Wales have. England, as do all the All Blacks, the leading Super Rugby teams, Connacht, Exeter and Wasps, utilise a second distributor who can run behind a screen of dummy runners, take a short deep pass from the first receiver, and then use their 13, 15 and wing to move around the defence. With Scott Williams back in the Welsh squad it is an option open to Wales, even when he plays thirteen. It is however something that Wales rarely utilise.Hallam Amos nails the 14 shirtRhys Webb, Jake Ball, Ross Moriarty and Rob Evans all had good individual performances, despite a substandard team performance, but it was Hallam Amos’ cap that will have been most reassuring for Wales. As with many Welsh wings in the current setup, Amos in his recent Welsh run outs has received little ball – on occasions Oliver Twist had more luck asking to be ‘fed’ than the Welsh back three.Holding his own: Hallam Amos’ running was one of Wales’ bright spotsBut against England, Amos made the most of opportunities – he was joint top for clean breaks for both teams and top for defenders beaten. Even amongst the fine performances from Marland Yarde, Jonathan Joseph and Anthony Watson, Hallam Amos held his own. The genuinely impressive number however was his metres gained, 118, way ahead of any other player on either team – a number which included very few cheap kick return yards. Promising, very promising Hallam.Wales don’t have to worry about locks. As the England game showed, Wales have a few selection issues ahead of the tour to New Zealand, thankfully locks aren’t one of them. Both Jake Ball and Alun-Wyn Jones played well at Twickenham and particularly Ball. Both players ability to do the basics has never been in doubt, but to see them passing ‘one-out’ from the standard contact point was encouraging – it is something that Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick, the Kiwi locks, execute very well.Assured: Both Jake Ball (pictured) and Alun Wyn Jones are decent handlers of the ballIn fact both AWJ and Ball passed the ball more than they carried; a rarity for a northern hemisphere lock. Ball’s performance also gives Wales further depth in a position where they already excel. There may be issues in midfield and the back row, but Wales’ strength at lock runs deep and is one of the least concerns ahead of the first test in NZ.The new approach to the back row seems overly radicalThe Welsh selectors approach to the back row for England, and the tour to New Zealand was/ is certainly radical. Wales, of all the tier one nations have always maintained a pure back row mix. A fetching seven, with a tackling six, combined with carrying eight. Dan Lydiate, Sam Warburton and Taulupe Faletau have been one of the most metronomic combinations in the last decade of rugby. Even when there have been calls for tweaks to the Welsh back row, playing two sevens for example, those calls were often dismissed. Until now, that is.At sixes and sevens: The lack of a balanced backrow led to defensive gaps and England triesPrior to the late inclusion of Ellis Jenkins, this current squad was made up almost entirely of utility back row players – even Sam Warburton has regularly played at six for Cardiff Blues this season. The adjustment of the Welsh back row to a host of 6.5’s isn’t itself a problem, as England outplayed Wales on Saturday with a utility back row – the real problem is Wales changing their back row system two weeks before they play the best team in the world, three times on the bounce.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.

PivotDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcText description provided by the architects. This house is located in a small alley in Danang City with a width of only 4m and a depth of more than 25m. The task is to design a full living space for a small family of 4 people including a Garage, Living, Kitchen and Dining, Study room, and 3 separate bedrooms.Save this picture!Sectional perspectiveThe specialty of Vietnam’s townhouses is very small houses and it is built close together. Without a good traffic and design solution, it would be very dark and stuffy due to the lack of light and air. So, I immediately thought of the solution that would use two separate traffic and staircases combined with the skylights and Vertical garden. The first goal is to get sun and wind into the house and to make the house as bright and airy as possible. The second one is to keep traffic from overlapping, avoiding the use of private space as a way to move from room to room. I use glass for the roof and open many windows, so that all the space is enjoying the green from the skylight and vertical garden. Whether in the living room, kitchen or bedroom, you can see and feel the comfort that green spaces bring.Save this picture!© To Huu DungThe first floor is arranged garage for cars and separated from other spaces by the sliding door system. The living room is quite spacious and comfortable, beside it is a small Koi fish pond between the living room and the kitchen. The Vertical gardens is used smoothly from the first floor to the roof make the house space green and people will be closer to nature.Save this picture!© To Huu DungThe second floor has 3 bedrooms, including a parent bedroom in the middle and two bedrooms of the children on two sides. The bedrooms are connected by bridge corridors, so parents can easily control the activities and studying of two children. The layout of the two stairs really promote efficiency in the use, the connection of private and common space is very simple and extremely effective.Save this picture!PlansThe 3rd floor includes the worshipping poom, the reading space combined with the study room, laundry room and the dressing room. There is also a green space and playground for families on beautiful days or for romantic evenings of parents.Save this picture!© To Huu DungProject gallerySee allShow lessDAS_Lab Office / DAS LabSelected ProjectsIsland House / Michael PicheSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© To Huu Dung+ 45Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this office85 DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationVietnamPublished on December 13, 2018Cite: “ThuBao’s House / 85 Design” 12 Dec 2018.
