A Brit Insurance spokesman told Reuters CVC came on board during Apollo’s due diligence.“During the course of the due diligence that Apollo had been undertaking it became apparent that Apollo wouldn’t be able to do this on their own. CVC approached the board of Brit at that time and the board of Brit worked quite hard to get Apollo and CVC in a place where they could work together on this,” the spokesman said.Brit Insurance said the offer from the Apollo, CVC consortium also valued the business at 10.75p per share, but included a provision through which shareholders would receive a further 25p per share should Brit’s net tangible asset value be more than £11 per share at the end of 2010.The offer would be adjusted on a linear sliding scale should the NTA be between £10.75 and £11.00 per share, it said.Shares in Brit Insurance closed unchanged at 989p per share, valuing the business at £782m.

Best bookmaker for banking

first_img Leading tipster site bettingexpert.com considers the deposit and withdrawal options offered by 25 of the UK’s most popular bookmakers Bet365 BetVictor Betway Betfair UnibetWithin the category, we assessed a number of factors. The first was the number of deposit options available. Here Sportingbet came out of top with 17 deposit options available. Bet365 was in second place, offering 14 deposit options. William Hill and NetBet came joint third with 13.In terms of the currencies available, bet365 led the way. Offering 19 different currency options, it was well ahead of Energy Bet in second place with 11 and Bet At Home with 10.Best minimum deposit The option to deposit as little as possible is important to many punters so we also assessed the minimum deposits required. We considered the most popular payment options of credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, PayPal and Bank Wire.Most online operators in the UK require only a reasonably low £5 minimum deposit using a credit card.Moving onto Skrill, Unibet required the lowest deposit at £2. Betfair was in second place here, with a minimum deposit of £6, with Coral next with a minimum of £9.When it came to PayPal, most bookmakers only required a £5 deposit using this method. The same was true of Neteller. In fact, it is an alternative to online casinos with a low minimum deposits in other countries.Minimum deposits for bank wire varied wildly from bookmaker to bookmaker. The lowest deposit required using this method was with Paddy Power, which required only a £5 minimum.Best bookmaker for withdrawals In terms of the best bookmaker for withdrawals, we’ve determined that the following bookmakers came out on top overall. Best bookmaker for banking Marketing & affiliates Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Credit card: Ladbrokes, £0.01 Skrill: Ladbrokes, £0.01 PayPal: Ladbrokes, £0.01 Neteller: Ladbrokes, £0.01 Bank wire: bet365, £5As can be seen, Ladbrokes offer the lowest minimum withdrawal amount for most methods.Best maximum withdrawal These days most bookmakers don’t apply a maximum withdrawal amount. General terms and conditions, however, could come into play here.The list below displays the highest maximum withdrawal for each payment option. Bet365 topped our list, performing well in our research for both deposits and withdrawals. Customers here have a great range of payment options, covering cards, eWallets, prepaid cards and vouchers. They also have the option to use the bet365 bookmaker card for payment transfers.Coming in second place was BetVictor. BetVictor provides a good all-round service for deposits and withdrawals.Third was Betfair. We found excellent payment options available with this operator, particularly the eWallet and bank wire options.In fourth and fifth place we had Betway and Unibet.Best bookmaker for deposits We further broke  our review down into the best bookmaker for deposits and the best bookmaker for withdrawals. We’ll start with the former.Overall, we found that the best bookmakers for deposits were the following: Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Bet365 BetVictor Betfair Betfred BetsafeFor availability of withdrawal options, Sportingbet came out on top here again, with 17 different methods available. In joint second place were NetBet and William Hill, with 13 options each.Bet365 offered the most withdrawal currencies, with 25 available. Energy Bet was second here, with 11 options, while Bet At Home offered 10.Best minimum withdrawal As with deposits, the minimum withdrawal amount varied between bookmakers and methods. We’ve listed the lowest minimum withdrawal for each payment option below. Credit Card: 888sport, no limit Skrill: Betfair, £999,999 PayPal: Betfair, £999,999 Neteller: Betfair, £999,999 Bank wire: Betfair, £999,999Here it was Betfair that offered the maximum withdrawal amount for most methods.Speed of deposits and withdrawals Whichever payment method players choose, most are able to use their funds immediately after depositing at most UK bookmakers.However, withdrawals come with extra limits compared with deposits. On most occasions, players need to wait a while before they can gain access to their winnings. Sometimes, the bookmaker will charge a fee, depending on which method they are using.For credit card withdrawals, the fastest bookmaker was Betfred, which claims to process and send withdrawals within two hours of request.Withdrawal times for Skrill depend on the bookmaker, with waits of between four and 24 hours typical using this method. We did find, however, that a transfer from a Betfair account to a Skrill account should be made immediately.Some bookmakers charge a fee for using Skrill to withdraw. For example, Sportingbet charges a fee of 4.90% on all withdrawals made using this method.As with Skrill, PayPal withdrawals can also take up to 24 hours or more to process. With Sky Bet, though, a withdrawal using PayPal is immediate.Marathonbet offers the shortest withdrawal time for Neteller, with punters waiting only about three hours for transfers. Neteller payments, again, can sometimes attract fees.Bank wire transfers tend to take longer. For instance, bet365 says withdrawals via bank wire will take about 10 days. Matchbook offers the quickest bank wire processing time, with withdrawals taking about one day.Conclusion Overall, our research found bet365 to be the bookmaker with the best banking options. It offered the highest number of currencies, along with plenty of deposit and withdrawal options.One interesting, and somewhat disappointing, aspect of conducting this research was the lack of information available on many operator sites. All payment terms and conditions should be clearly set out, however we found that many do not abide by this.A more positive finding, however, was that many operators are making it easier for players to make deposits and withdrawals by introducing new options. A number have released their own bookmaker bank cards, including bet365, Betfair, Coral, Paddy Power and William Hill.We expect the number of payment options to increase further in the future. We might see more operators offering bookmaker bank cards and prepaid cards, and cryptocurrency options could also be introduced.About bettingexpert.com Providing expert tips and in depth betting theory, bettingexpert.com is the world’s biggest social network of sports betting tipsters.

Marius Joubert soft spear tackle

first_imgSaturday Aug 11, 2007 Marius Joubert soft spear tackle After seeing Morne Steyn get red carded for a spear tackle a couple of weeks ago, Marius Joubert was only yellow carded for this tackle a week later.It was definitly not as dangerous as Steyns, but the question has to be asked – should it be a red card for any spear tackle, or is each tackle judged according to the severity of the impact?It may have been a spear tackle, but it wasn’t a “true” spear tackle, as Joel Stransky points out.Both fans and players alike need consistancy from the refs and the IRB rulings. My feeling is that each tackle should be judged accordingly. Therefore, a yellow was sufficent here. Your thoughts?

The Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge in Covington, Kentucky, is a 20-story residential tower that was completed in 2008. Reaching 300 feet at its pinnacle, the 310,000 sqf building includes 70 residential units, a swimming pool, garden facilities, large public event space, and a restaurant on the plaza level. The Ascent at Roebling’s Bridge was awarded a CNBC Americas Property Award for Best High-Rise Development in 2008. Save this picture!© CorporexProject description, images, and drawings after the break. Save this picture!© CorporexIts curving crescent form and sloping roofline are designed to maximize views, resulting in unobstructed visibility of the Cincinnati skyline from every unit. Sizes of the units range between 950 and 7,000 sqf, with most being around 2,000 sqf.Save this picture!© CorporexThe tower, located at 1 Roebling Way – a street renamed by city officials to better fit the building – echoes the colors of the Suspension Bridge. Built in earth tones, its windows reflect the sky and river images. Save this picture!© CorporexThe ascending height of the building mimics the suspension cables of the nearby Roebling’s Bridge, a central feature of Covington’s waterfront. It also links the low horizon of residential structures to the east with the more modern commercial buildings to the west. Save this picture!© CorporexThrough the vertical, non-repeating articulation of the facade, the building breaks from the conventional, horizontal orientation of typical high-rise buildings. Its multiple layers blur the distinction between interior and exterior, both visually and experientially. The resulting texture also provides shade to all units from the eastern sun. Save this picture!© CorporexIn the words of Daniel Libeskind, “History is not over. This building, while modern in design, is based on shapes that reflect the history, traditions and landscape of Greater Cincinnati, yet calls to mind the possibilities that lay ahead. The Ascent is less a structure than a living, breathing piece of art that stirs the soul and lifts the spirit. The Ascent will provide a lifestyle unlike any other in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. It is a building that will inspire a region. It is a call to greatness.”Save this picture!© CorporexProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity Center Expansion Tower / Holzman Moss BottinoArticlesLawrence Israel Prize Awarded to David RockwellArticlesProject locationAddress:John A.

The project consists of rehabilitating a dilapidated house for an occasional home in a Maestrazgo village. Given its location in a corner, very visible from three streets, we intended to respect the materials, proportions and the arrangement of openings of traditional architecture.Save this picture!Courtesy of ADI ArquitecturaThe balcony, which runs between two floors and two facade planes, draws on these intentions, following along with a modern language and addressing the purpose of facilitating views between neighboring roofs. Inside, the staircase, always present, is the element that brings the plans together, so it was laid out very openly, combining steps and rail with the same structural resource.Save this picture!PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessA Year Without OscarArchitecture NewsTunnels Under London: the Largest Infrastructure Project in EuropeArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

Former rebels falsely accuse journalist of involvement in murder plot

first_img Receive email alerts Another journalist murdered in Haiti Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice Follow the news on Haïti November 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Former rebels falsely accuse journalist of involvement in murder plot to go further Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti RSF_en HaïtiAmericas HaïtiAmericas News News October 11, 2019 Find out more November 14, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Organisation Reporters Without Borders voices alarm about false allegations by National Resistance Front leader Winter Etienne that journalist Nancy Roc of Radio Métropole was involved in a murder plot. These claims made on the air by an armed group pose a threat to Roc’s safety, the organisation says. News Claims by a former rebel group based in the northern city of Gonaïves linking radio journalist Nancy Roc to the murder of its leader last year were “irresponsible and gratuitous” and posed a threat to her safety, Reporters Without Borders said today.”It is very disturbing that the leader of an armed group, Winter Etienne, the spokesman of the National Resistance Front (FRN), has made baseless allegations associating a journalist’s name with a plot and a murder, the organisation said.”Reporters Without Borders welcomes the Haitian government’s rapid response in according Nancy Roc protection and asks that it be maintained for as long as necessary,” the statement added. Roc presents a programme on Radio Métropole called “Metropolis.”Comments by Etienne on Radio Vision 2000 and Caraïbes FM on 6 November suggested that Roc was involved in a plot leading to the murder in September 2003 of Amyot Métayer, the leader of the Cannibal Army (as the FRN was then called). He also suggested that Roc was linked to a recent supposed attempt to kill Amyot Métayer’s brother, Butter.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Roc said she went to Gonaïves to do a report on relief work aid there since the disastrous flooding caused by Tropical Storm Jeanne in September, and on the impact of local corruption on the distribution of humanitarian aid. She said she contacted Etienne, now in charge of the city’s port, and set up two appointments, but each time he failed to turn up.During an interview with President Boniface Alexandre on Radio Métropole on 30 October, Roc also reported that Etienne had said he never belonged to the Cannibal Army.After Etienne made his allegations against her, Roc received a call from the government offering support and she currently has police protection 24 hours a day. Despite Etienne’s allegations, her report on Gonaïves was broadcast as planned on 6 November. June 11, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more
