CITY VIEWS: SHOULD MURDOCH BE ALLOWED TO BUY THE REST OF BSKYB?

first_img ADAM COUNIHAN | PREQIN“I don’t really have a problem with it to be honest. I was under the impression that Murdoch already owned the whole company. It’s reasonable for the Competition Commission to look at a takeover of this size, but personally I don’t mind.”JOHN HIEW | MCCURRACH“As an idea it’s fine, although I don’t think he will get it for the current price. Government intervention in public services is fine, but this is a commercial business and the bosses of Sky are capable of fending for themselves.”STEVE EVANS | DEUTSCHE BANK“It’s always a bad idea when someone has so much power within an industry, whether in the media or elsewhere.

A number of employees have been arrested and charged but no hedge funds had been implicated until now. Barai has not yet been charged with any wrongdoing.Barai’s involvement centres on a complaint filed by the US Attorney in December, which charges a technology consultant, Winifred Jiau, with insider trading. Jiau was charged with sharing private information about companies including Marvell and Nvidia in a number of telephone conversations with a hedge fund manager. In two such calls made in May 2008, Jiau told hedge fund portfolio managers confidential information about Marvell’s quarterly revenues, margins and earnings per share, before the public announcement. But the recordings of those conversations were seized by US law enforcers after a raid on Barai’s offices, reports said.The complaint alleges that Barai’s firm made profits of more than $820,000 (£517,000) from the tips. Jiau received more than $200,000 from the funds as a consultant with an “expert networking firm,” Primary Global Research.Eight employees of the networking firm have now been arrested in the probe.

The Independent Evaluation Office said there was a mind-set among IMF economists that developed economies were unlikely to provide a spark for a major financial crisis, given their presumed expertise in monetary and regulatory management. Limited data and insight also prevented its staff from challenging those economies, it said.

Yet analysts say the outlook remains sluggish, with lending down £200m compared to March 2010 and sales still hampered by a squeeze on funding for first-time buyers.“Let’s not be fooled into thinking the market is blossoming,” said Peter Rollings, chief executive of estate agent Marsh and Parsons.“In London there’s no shortage of demand from would-be buyers, but unless more assistance from lenders comes their way, the first rung on the property ladder will remain far from reach for thousands,” he added.Remortgage approvals in February were the highest for more than two years, with the CML citing expectations of imminent interest rate hikes. Yet inflation expectations dropped sharply to 2.9 per cent in April from 3.5 per cent in March, a Citigroup and YouGov survey showed yesterday. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Acura’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search AdsNext RefinanceThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryNext Refinancebonvoyaged.comTotal Jerks: These Stars Are Horrible People.bonvoyaged.comzenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStorymoneywise.comThe Most Neglected College Football Stadiums In The U.S.moneywise.comZen HeraldShe Inspired Three Of The Most Popular Songs EverZen HeraldFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatter Sharecenter_img whatsapp Wednesday 20 April 2011 8:09 pm whatsapp KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The S1 has a 9.4-inch display and a curved design that Sony says makes it easier to hold for long periods of time.The S2 has two 5.5-inch displays in a clamshell design, which Suzuki showed off by producing one from his jacket pocket during the launch. The devices will run a tweaked version of Google’s Android operating system, which will allow users to “throw” media content onto Sony TVs and stereo systems.Non-Apple devices have so-far failed to seriously dent the iPad but research firm Gartner suggests sales of tablets will quadruple to about 294m between 2011 and 2015, with almost half of those Android-based.

Vietnam to allow punters to bet on overseas football matches

first_img Topics: Legal & compliance New legislation has been introduced in Vietnam that will allow the country’s inhabitants to place bets on football matches overseas.Vietnam’s National Assembly approved the law yesterday (Thursday) as football’s 2018 Fifa World Cup got underway in Russia. However, the new law is not expected to come into force until 2019.With sports betting having been illegal in the country for decades, the shift by the authorities has been seen as an attempt to stop money flowing out of the country.The Nikkei Asian Review reported that a single operator will be granted a five-year licence and will be able to offer wagers on the World Cup, as well as other sporting events, including the Asian Games and Southeast Asian Games, and matches that do not involve Vietnamese athletes. The licences will be issued by the country’s Ministry of Finance.The report added that the illegal gambling market in Vietnam is estimated to be worth several billion dollars each year, with police in 2017 having uncovered illegal sports-betting operations worth more than $300m.The Vietnam Football Federation has been one of the organisations lobbying for a more relaxed approach to sports betting in the country.Related article: Vietnamese police make arrests in $39.5m illegal betting probe Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 15th June 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: Asia Vietnam Vietnam to allow punters to bet on overseas football matches New legislation has been introduced in Vietnam that will allow the country’s inhabitants to place bets on football matches overseas.last_img read more
