Las Vegas-headquartered casino operator MGM Resorts International has announced a major restructuring programme as it looks to increase earnings by $300m (£236.7m/€263m) by 2021.The MGM 2020 plan will see the operator look to centralise a number of business functions to maximise profitability, and invest in technology to drive revenue growth.By doing so, MGM aims to increase earnings before interest, tax, deprecation and amortisation by $200m by the end of 2020, then by an additional $100m by the end of 2021.The operator explained that it had centralised company-wide functions and focused on developing operational expertise to ensure its business units followed best practice guidelines over the past two years.Going forward, it will look to build on these initiatives to boost profitability. It said around half the $200m in additional adjusted EBITDA will be generated through layoffs, with a further 25% coming from shifting certain functions to other parts of the business, and the final 25% from revenue optimisation.“Today, we are taking the next step in our evolution as an organisation,” chairman and chief executive Jim Murren explained. “We are building on the strong foundation that we have solidified over the past few years, to deepen our efficiencies and achieve sustained growth and margin enhancement,”“MGM 2020 is intended to further transform the way we operate and leverage the most effective operational architecture for our company.”Murren explained that 2020 vision was an extension of its Profit Growth Plan, launched in August 2015. The business had already exceeded the initial targets set out in the plan, he added.The operational efficiencies set out in the 2020 plan would be complemented by investment in technology, with MGM to reallocate a portion of its annual capital expenditure budget to a number of technology projects in the coming years. This will see the operator invest in data, pricing, digital and loyalty programme enhancements, through which it aims to achieve the additional $100m in adjusted EBITDA growth by the end of its 2021 financial year.“We had a solid finish to the year in 2018, and as we look to 2019 and beyond, we remain confident in the ramp of our newly opened properties MGM COTAI, MGM Springfield, Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas,” Murren said.“We will enter two attractive markets in New York and Ohio. We will continue to work toward cementing MGM Resorts as the leader in sports, following the milestones achieved in 2018 with GVC and the professional sports leagues,” he continued. “We remain focused on pursuing an integrated resort opportunity in Japan. MGM 2020 reinforces our commitment to increasing margins and maximising profitability.” Staff and increased technology investment central components of strategy to increase earnings by $300m by 2021 MGM launches efficiency drive to achieve 2020 vision AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 4th January 2019 | By contenteditor Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Strategy Email Address
December 7, 2016 at 11:01 pm A temporary Marxist, ecofascist, shamanistic victory over logic, reason and common sense. The pipeline will ultimately be completed, energy will be created and economic progress will continue for the good of our great nation.

Richard McClellan says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector Collierville, TN Fireworks marked the celebration over the Oceti Sakowin Camp following the federal government’s Dec. 4 announcement that it would not allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross the Missouri River at Lake Oahe. Photo: Michael Pipkin/Facebook[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal and interfaith chaplains were about to raise a tent in the Oceti Sakowin Camp on Dec. 4 when a message runner approached and called them to join the crowd already gathering around the sacred fire in the camp’s center. They left the tent, poles inserted, on the ground, and they went.As they joined the hundreds of people around the fire, Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II took to the microphone to announce that that federal government said it would not allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under the Missouri River at Lake Oahe, the drinking water source for some 8,000 people living on the Standing Rock Reservation, which covers 2.3 million acres in North and South Dakota.“It’s significant for all of the people that supported us, standing with us,” said Archambault. “It’s huge. It’s big.”He called on those present to take the lessons learned from the “Water is Life” movement home with them to heal their families and communities, and to create a better future.“It’s time that we now move forward and that we don’t forget. I’m just so thankful for all of you,” Archambault said.The crowd, including many who have been camped out in opposition to the controversial oil pipeline for months, erupted into applause; tears flowed, and people hugged one another in celebration.Thousands of people, including Native Americans and indigenous people representing some 300 tribes from around the world, have traveled to North Dakota in recent months in an unprecedented show of solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation.“On behalf of the Episcopal Church, I offer my gratitude to President Barack Obama and his administration for championing the rights of the indigenous peoples of the United States. We applaud the decision by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to deny the pipeline permit under Lake Oahe,” said Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, who went to Standing Rock in September. “I personally offer thanks to all those who have worked to amplify the voices of the people at Standing Rock, calling our attention to historic wrongs and injustices, and urging us all to consider a new vision for how we might love God, love each other and love creation.“I am grateful and humbled by the water protectors of Standing Rock, whose faithful witness, serves as an example of moral courage, spiritual integrity, and genuine concern for the entire human family and God’s creation. I am equally appreciative of the sacrifice and example of the military veterans, interfaith clergy and trauma chaplains who accompanied the water protectors during critical moments of the struggle.”The Dec. 4 decision came as U.S. military veterans were pouring into the camp to stand as a shield between nonviolent water protectors and law enforcement officers in what had become an increasingly violent, militarized standoff. At one point, it looked as if protectors would be forced to evacuate the Oceti Sakowin Camp, located on federal land just south of the Cannonball River on Highway 1806.The Rev. John Floberg, supervising priest of the Episcopal churches on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock, standing with the Episcopal flag in Oceti Sakowin Camp on Dec. 4. Photo: Lauren Stanley“Speechless … completely overwhelmed. I always hoped for today,” said the Rev. John Floberg, supervising priest of the Episcopal churches on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock who has led the Episcopal Church’s continued support to water protectors, following the announcement. Tears rolled down his cheeks as he expressed gratitude “for all those who answered the call and had the church standing with Standing Rock. This is the kairos moment, and we are in the middle of it.”“I want to thank everyone from every faith tradition who came to support us …. This is the common ground from Roman Catholic to Orthodox to Wiccan, this is the common ground for our faiths, we are at a new place.”By the time the announcements finished, thousands of people had gathered around the sacred fire, “you could feel joy, shock and excitement all rolled into one; it was like the entire earth was vibrating,” said the Rev. Lauren Stanley, superintendent presbyter of the Rosebud Episcopal Mission West in South Dakota, adding that fireworks and victory songs continued into the night. “They were saying thank you to everyone who has supported them, it’s been a way of proving to the government that people do care, and that’s not been the history of native people.”The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe commended the Obama administration and the federal government for its decision.“We wholeheartedly support the decision of the administration and commend with the utmost gratitude the courage it took on the part of President Obama, the Army Corps, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior to take steps to correct the course of history and to do the right thing,” said the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in a Dec. 4 statement in response to the Army’s decision. “The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all of Indian Country will be forever grateful to the Obama administration for this historic decision.”The tribe’s statement went on to thank the tribal youth who initiated the “Water is Life” movement; advocates and the millions of people around the globe who supported its cause; the thousands of supporters who came to the camps; and the tens of thousands who donated time, talent and money to its “efforts to stand against the pipeline in the name of protecting water. We especially thank all of the other tribal nations and jurisdictions who stood in solidarity with us, and we stand ready with you if and when your people are in need.”The Army based its Dec. 4 decision on the need to explore alternative routes for the Dakota Access Pipeline that “would be best accomplished through an Environmental Impact Statement with full public input and analysis.”The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers launched a review of the permit on Sept. 9, when it requested construction stop on the 1,172-mile 30-inch diameter pipeline poised to carry up to 570,000 gallons of oil a day from the Bakken oil field in northwestern North Dakota – through South Dakota and Iowa – to Illinois where it will be shipped to refineries. The pipeline was to pass within one-half mile of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and tribal leaders repeatedly expressed concerns over the potential for an oil spill that would damage the reservation’s water supply, and the threat the pipeline posed to sacred sites and treaty rights.Back in September, federal agencies said the case highlighted the need for discussion regarding nationwide reform with respect to considering tribes’ views on infrastructure projects.Energy Transfer Partners responded on Dec. 4 by saying that it and its partner Sunoco Logistics Partners are “fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion and fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe. Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way.”The statement went on to say, “The White House’s directive today to the Corps for further delay is just the latest in a series of overt and transparent political actions by an administration which has abandoned the rule of law in favor of currying favor with a narrow and extreme political constituency.”President-elect Donald J. Trump says he supports the pipeline’s completion.Law enforcement has back away from the Backwater Bridge on Highway 1806 near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota. The bridge had been blockaded since an Oct. 27 confrontation and is a vital artery for emergency vehicles carrying people to hospital from the Standing Rock Reservation. As of Dec. 5, the road remained closed. Photo: Michael PipkinEven while celebrating the Dec. 4 victory, water protectors and their allies are preparing for the long winter and road ahead.“People will not leave until this situation is secure and that the victory that was won yesterday is sustained, and we have confidence that it will be sustained even into a new presidential administration,” said Floberg in a Dec. 5 telephone interview with Episcopal News Service. “Will some people go home? Yes, there can be a large stand down right now, but there will be a significant presence maintained, that will call back this force of people from throughout this country and around the world if this course is not maintained.”Although the Dec. 4 decision is a victory, the case is not over. On Nov. 15, Dallas, Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners, the company developing the pipeline, filed a lawsuit asking for federal court intervention to finish the project.Veterans join activists in a march to Backwater Bridge just outside of the Oceti Sakowin Camp on Dec. 5 during a snow fall as “water protectors” continue to demonstrate against plans to pass the Dakota Access pipeline adjacent to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, near Cannon Ball, North Dakota. Photo: Lucas Jackson/REUTERSThe situation on the ground intensified in late November, and initially, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Morton County Sheriff called for the evacuation of the Oceti Sakowin Camp, but both have since backed off. The Dec. 5 evacuation deadline coincided with the planned “deployment” of military veterans on the ground. In anticipation of the veterans’ arrival, the Standing Rock Sioux Nation asked for chaplains to be present.After the Dec. 4 announcement and the initial celebration the Episcopal and interfaith chaplains returned to erect their tent, and early on the morning of Dec. 5, they hit the ground running, providing wellness and pastoral care to water protectors and their allies in the Oceti Sakowin Camp.“We’re going two-by-two knocking on tents to make sure people are warm enough; if they are not we can help them get to a warming place, we have hand warmers and blankets,” said the Rev. Michael Pipkin, a former Navy chaplain on the Minnesota diocesan staff, who is coordinating the chaplain’s response.Temperatures were in the lower teens on the morning of Dec. 5, and by noon snow was falling. Temperatures are forecast to fall as the week goes on.Once the person’s physical needs are addressed, Pipkin said the chaplains move on to “deep soul work,” asking questions like, “How are you feeling? What does this mean for you?”“We all understand that this is a prayerful place, Oceti Camp is a camp of prayer. In my whole life, I’ve never been around so many people praying and praying for a single cause … this is prayer in action and prayerful action all at the same time,” he said.The Rev. Lauren Stanley, superintendent presbyter of the Rosebud Episcopal Mission West in South Dakota, wears a red beanie with “chaplain” written across the front while standing alongside the Rev. John Floberg, supervising priest of the Episcopal churches on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock. Photo: Paul J. Lebens-Englund/FacebookThirty chaplains, including Episcopalians, Unitarians, Quakers, hospital and prison chaplains, are spending their days in camp through Dec. 7, while sleeping on the floor of St. James’ Episcopal Church in nearby Cannon Ball. On the evening of Dec. 4, Pipkin said, there was a line of veterans from recent and past conflicts still waiting to get into the camp.“I’ve seen vets in wheelchairs … I just met an 80-year-old veteran from Alaska; it’s fascinating to me,” he said. “This has been very healing as a vet who has experienced conflict.”Also on Dec. 5, during a forgiveness ceremony held in the pavilion of the Prairie Knights Casino and Resort on the Standing Rock reservation, non-native veterans including Wesley Clark Jr., son of the retired U.S. Army General, knelt for 14 minutes asking elders for the forgiveness of sins committed by the U.S. government against Native Americans. Following the ceremony, Native American veterans were asked to come forward and make relationships with those who were apologizing, and they did so by exchanging hugs and handshakes, said Stanley.“Forgiveness and reconciliation is what Dave Archambault was talking about, and of course that resonates with us Episcopalians,” said Stanley. “This is a whole new chapter between natives and the rest of the United States.”The Episcopal Church has supported water protectors and their allies since August when opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline began in earnest. And the support will continue, said Floberg.The Church will continue to provide support comfort and pastoral care to people on the ground, and Floberg is encouraging Episcopalians to continue to come to Standing Rock in a show of solidarity; yesterday as the announcement was made, a group from Rochester, New York, was making its way.“What we are doing is we are staying where the people are, that is where the Church belongs, among the people, and we continue to call for Episcopalians and clergy to come and bear witness here. We’re not calling for people to turn around.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service. The Rev. Lauren Stanley contributed reporting from the ground in North Dakota.

We support on those grounds, and on the grounds that we are to love and support our neighbors regardless of faith. (That was the point of Jesus’ story about the Good Samaritan, after all.) Do you really know the nature of their beliefs enough to make such a dismissive judgement? Is it our job to judge how one sees and worships the Creator? God is called by many names and is big enough to be worshiped in many different ways.And for the record, there are hundreds of Christians, Jews and Muslims alongside these native peoples. J.Douglas Ousley says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME December 6, 2016 at 9:48 am How is the fire and the land and water sacred to those of us who are Christians?

This is a mindset with some in the Episcopal Church that doesn’t make me feel very welcome. I’m a newer member of the Episcopal Church and my only concern with it is when politics intervene. I don’t think Jesus would take sides. The baptism vows are to treat all with dignity and respect, I don’t find your comments to be either.

In the meantime, it seems to me that it is the pipeline company, Energy Transfer Partners, that is breaking the law, by thumbing its nose at Sunday’s decision, and that the panoply of “law enforcement” north of the bridge is now protecting the law breakers and disadvantaging the Native American water protectors peacefully assembled on their own land.

In spite of the prefab wood elements used in this construction, this private house on Steigereiland in IJburg conjures up the idea of an outsize, five-storey wood-carving. Maatworks architects were commissioned to fill the entire building envelope with a town house inspired by the clients’ beloved Scandinavians houses. As in previous projects in IJburg, the architects used one material in particular: pine wood.Here that material was even painted bright red for the facade. Behind that eye-catching facade lies a prefab system based on glulam building components that allows the architect to connect nearly all the components both structurally and spatially. For example, the wall of the staircase are both banisters and walls for the adjoining rooms. Via a large skylight and several small openings in the stairwell, daylight penetrates deep into the house, an effect that is further enhanced by the floor-by-floor widening of the stairwell as it rises.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgThe house required minimal detailing because the dimensionally accurate prefab internal walls allowed for plain connections, while all the ducting and recesses for wall sockets were concealed during prefabrication. Pine’s tendency to yellow has been counteracted with a coating of lye. Maat architects avoid monotony in the interior with whitish-grey doors and cement covering floors, with integrated floor heating, finished wit fair-faced concrete.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe house was designed in accordance with the passive solar energy principle: large expanses of south-facing glass ensure that solar heat floods the house in winter, while architectural solar shading in the form of balconies and a roof overhang above the terrace prevent overheating in summer. Surplus heat is expelled via the skylight above the stairwell. In combination with the material properties of this “wooden house”, this provides for a pleasant indoor climate and Scandinavian-style domestic bliss in the middle of the big city.Save this picture!© Marcel van der BurgProduct Description. The wood construction of the house consists of prefab cross laminated elements. The elements were made by the german company Züblin. Due to the precision of the product, we could even use it for the interior, for example the stairway in this house.

The Card Shop can also provide all the tools required to promote itself and its charity through both online social media and printed communications. “With the permission of the card sender,” says Hartzel “We can insert a charity flyer in each card… an intelligent way to engage with someone new, who may become a supporter themselves.” Other tools such as Incentive Sharing and the Customer Nurture Sequence can be managed for the participating charities and provide additional vital promotion at very little cost. “The technology we’ve built has been developed specifically to raise money and awareness for charities.” Hartzel states “It allows adding further donations in lieu of gifts to every card which gives charities on average £2 for every card sent.” Dogs Trust, Cats Protection, Sightsavers, Bullying UK, Guide Dogs, Diabetes UK and Alzheimer’s Society are amongst the forward thinking charities who already have their own Charity Greetings Card Shops. Jacqui O’Beirne, Digital Marketing Manager at Dogs Trust (http://greetingcards.dogstrust.org.uk) says “Dogs Trust has found Charity Greetings to be an ideal companion to our other shopping offerings. Our supporters are already sending cards with some adding further donations. We were thrilled when our first sale came through only minutes after going live. The fact the cards are real and can be sent direct to the receiver is a real bonus for our supporters who prefer this.” Periodically Charity Greetings invites new charities to open up a Card Shop for free. 14 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A Charity Greetings Card Shop gives charities a free, own-brand, online paper greeting card store where every card sent raises valuable funds. The greeting card hungry British public spends more on greeting cards than on tea and coffee combined. On average we send 31 greeting cards per person per year in the UK (Greeting Card Association, 2010). As 1 in 5 consumers try to buy charity cards (Mintel, October 2010) charities are missing out on an estimated £460 million per annum. Currently, the purchase of charity cards remains largely confined to Christmas and Easter. Other occasions such as birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Father’s Day and Mother’s Day remain an untapped market. Charity Greetings co-founder Craig Hartzel says “The Card Shop is the perfect way for charities to generate more year-round revenue from their current supporter base, rather than asking them to give more, as charities usually do. Supporters simply send the cards they would normally send but they raise funds at the same time.” Advertisement Thanks to a game changing offering from Charity Greetings, charities can finally take full advantage of the £1.47 billion UK greeting cards industry.

Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 16, 2017 SHARE Extending Nutrients for Soybeans this YearWith flooded and saturated fields this spring, much needed fertilizer may have been lost. However, there is a new product that will help deal with that problem.Extract is a fertilizer biocatalyst that helps make what nutrients there are in the soil available to crops. Scott Lay, with Loveland Products, explains how the product works, “What Extract does is frees up nutrients that are already in the soil and makes them in a more plant available form so they can be used by the crop.”With concerns about nutrient loss this year, this product may be helpful in improving yields in soybeans. Lay told HAT, when used with a pre-plant herbicide of fertilizer application, “We have seen a consistent 4 bpa advantage.” He added that it only takes a one bushel increase to meet the ROI in soybeans.Lay says the product works all season long and can help make sure adequate nutrients are available later in the season during the critical yield determination period, “We are able to extend the nutrient mineralization process throughout the growing season to provide a more adequate flow of nutrients to the plant curing the critical times in July and August.” Ask about Extract at your co-op or local Crop Production Service store.

The Court said that it was considering to set up an independent committee to mediate between the protesting farmers and the Central Government. However, the Court refrained from passing any substantive directions in that regard as the impleaded eight farmers organizations did not appear before the bench on the next date of hearing.Now, the petitioner, law student Rishabh Sharma, has filed an application to implead the following groups :BKU Units of: Bhanu, Tikait,Kadian, Mansa, Maan, Chadhuni Jattan, Mubarakpur, AmbavtaBKU Ekta UgrahaBKU Krantikari VPO PhullKrantikari Kisan UnionKul Hind Kisan SabhaKirti Kisan UnionPunjab Kisan UnionKul Hind Kisan SabhaKisan Sangharsh CommitteeAzad Kisan SangharshJai Kisaan AndolanKisaan Majdoor SangharshMajha Kisan CommitteeIndian Farmer Association of IndiaBhartiya Kisan ManchLok Bhalai Insaaf Welfare SocietyDoaba Kisan SamitiDoaba Kisan Sangharsh CommitteeGanna Kisan CommitteeAajad Kisan Committee, DoabaKisan Bacharach MorchaKul Hind Kisan Sangharsh Talmel CommitteeSarva Hind Rashtriya KisanMahila Kisan Adhikar MunchRashtriya Kisan MahasanghAfter the hearing held on December 16, the Supreme Court allowed the impleadment of the following organizations : Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU – Rakesh Tikait) BKU-Sidhupur (Jagjeet S. Dallewal) BKU-Rajewal (Balbeer Singh Rajewal) BKU-Lakhowal (Harinder Singh Lakhowal) Jamhoori Kisan Sabha (Kulwant Singh Sandhu) BKU-Dakaunda (Buta Singh Burjgill) BKU – Doaba (Manjit Singh Rai) Kul Hind Kisan Federation (Prem Singh Bhangu)On the next date of hearing, on December 17, these 8 groups were not represented before the court. The petitioner claimed that they were served notice. The bench headed by the CJI SA Bobde orally observed that it may not be appropriate to pass orders without hearing the organizations which were added as respondents. Only Bharatiya Kisan Union(Bhanu), which has filed an intervention application in the cases challenging farm laws, appeared before the court through Advocate A P Singh. However, Solicitor General told the Court that BKU(Bhanu) and other farmers unions were not on the same page on the issues.In this backdrop, the Court adjourned the hearing, observing that the farmers protests can continue without impediment and without breach of peace by protesters and police.”We are of the view at this stage that the farmers’ protest should be allowed to continue without impediment and without any breach of peace either by the protesters or the police.We clarify that this Court will not interfere with the protest in question. Indeed the right to protest is part of a fundamental right and can as a matter of fact, be exercised subject to public order. There can certainly be no impediment in the exercise of such rights as long as it is non-violent and does not result in damage to the life and properties of other citizens and is in accordance with law”, the court observed in the order.While adjourning the hearing, the CJI also orally asked the Attorney General for India if the Centre can consider withholding the implementation of the contentious farm laws to facilitate the negotiations.Thousands of protesters, mostly from Punjab, have been camping in the border areas of Delhi-NCR since November 26 raising a demand that the Central Government repeal the recently passed farmers laws.After the support for the protests swelled, the Central Government invited the leaders for talks. However, the talks are yet to yield results and the protesters are standing firm on their demand that the laws must be taken back.The Supreme Court has issued notices on a batch of petitions which challenge the constitutional validity of the said Acts.
