Handle for William Hill’s temporary facility was down 4.6% from October’s total, at $13.7m (£10.1m/€11.2m), though prizes and payouts also declined, to $11.0m. This takes amounts wagered via the location to $49.4m since it opened in July this year, with players winning $41.2m, for revenue of $8.2m. Washington DC has generated tax revenue of $817,870.67 from William Hill over this period. Both William Hill’s sportsbook at Washington DC’s Capital One Arena and the DC Lottery’s Gambet app saw stakes dip – though revenue increase – in November. 16th December 2020 | By Robin Harrison It also left the operator further ahead of the Intralot-powered DC Lottery’s Gambet app, which much like William Hill, reported a month-over-month decline in amounts wagered, but a marginal increase in revenue, for November.

The cumulative nature of losses mean that any drawdowns in a stock of over 50% mean we need to achieve a 100% return just to get back to where we were.Warren Buffett was exactly right when asked what his investing rules were: “Rule number one: don’t lose money. Rule number two: follow rule number one“. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Over the last few years, we have seen many stocks go under, such as Interserve, Carillion, and Thomas Cook Group, and the common denominator was that all three businesses were saddled with large amounts of debt. Other reasons to avoid stocks are because of failing business models, or because they are overly reliant on external funding.Too many problemsOne stock that I would avoid this year is Rolls Royce (LSE: RR). This stock has been struggling to turn itself around for years, and problems with the Trent 1000 engine are persisting. Already the company has said that it is likely there will be a £1.4bn exceptional charge to operating profit because of this issue, and there is no guarantee that the problem won’t become any worse. The company also mentioned in its recent trading update announced that, despite improved trading, full-year operating profit and free cash flow would be towards the lower end of guidance ranges.The company does expect to generate £1bn of free cash flow – so it’s not all bad news – but with the amount of stocks available to buy I will be avoiding this one. Not enough certainty The future of Sirius Minerals (LSE: SXX) is unclear, and until there is some clarity on both the cash position and financing of the polyhalite project, shareholders are going to be in the dark on the business’s future. One thing that I have learned is that the chances of successfully avoiding large losses increase when you avoid stocks that could go bust. This is subjective, but while many private investors were tempted to buy stocks such as Thomas Cook and Carillion, I avoided them because I felt the equity was like purchasing a lottery ticket. I generally avoid stocks that are leveraged with debt twice over (a net debt to equity ratio of two), because in the event of a stock going bust, bondholders always get the first scraps of a business. Very often, there is nothing left for shareholders.That is what I believe could happen at Sirius Minerals. If the company can’t raise enough funds to continue as a going concern, then the stock may collapse and the project could be picked up for a few pennies in the pound from an external party – wiping shareholders out completely. That said, if the company does get financing, then the investment case becomes a different story. Image source: Getty Images.

When I hear investing likened to gambling, I sigh. There’s a huge gulf between betting on horses and, say, investing in FTSE 100 shares. I also quote legendary US fund manager Peter Lynch: “Although it’s easy to forget sometimes, a share is not a lottery ticket…it’s part-ownership of a business.”The FTSE 100 isn’t for gamblersGambling usually involves being on the wrong end of the cruel and unbending laws of statistics. Buying shares in, say, a FTSE 100 firm means becoming a co-owner of that firm. If you choose wisely and your company does well, so too will your shares.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Furthermore, I dislike bargain-hunting for what I’d call ‘cheap and nasty’ small-company shares. In my long experience, they usually involve too much nasty and not enough cheap.This FTSE 100 share has crushed crises since 1865During the steepest market crash in UK history, I’ve been ultra-cautious when stock-picking. As the coronavirus crisis is far from over, I look for businesses that I think are practically bombproof and able to withstand the most severe downturn.One share lurking on my radar is HSBC Holdings (LSE: HSBA), a global bank among the FTSE 100 mega-caps. With a market value of £85.7bn, HSBC is by far the biggest bank in the FTSE 100, yet makes the bulk of its money outside these shores. In business since 1865, HSBC is not an exciting investment. In fact, I’d describe this as one of the FTSE 100’s dullest shares. But, in times of crisis, dull can be attractive. For example, during the global financial crisis of 2008/09, I put my life savings on deposit with HSBC. My thinking was that if HSBC’s ‘fortress’ balance sheet failed, then there wouldn’t be any banks left standing!HSBC shares have nearly halved since 2018Despite HSBC being a ‘boring’ bank, its shares have seen plenty of far-from-dull price action. In January 2018, they hit 792p but now stand at 423p, almost halving (down 47%) in 30 months. Similarly, HSBC shares are down more than a third (34%) over the past year.Notably, HSBC shares kept falling long after 23 March, when the FTSE 100 hit its 2020 low. HSBC’s 2020 low came when its shares dipped below 370p on 29 May. Since then, they have staged a modest recovery, rising 14%.Obviously, there’s no point in discussing HSBC’s fundamentals. Thanks to Covid-19, earnings predictions have been withdrawn. Also, the bank suspended its dividend – a rock-steady $0.51 (40.3p) a year since 2015. When this current crisis abates, I expect it to resume paying dividends. Even a reduced yearly dividend of, say, 30p would equate to a future dividend yield of 7.1% at today’s price.In short, if you enjoy gambling, then fritter your money away on roulette or sports betting. If you prefer to invest long-term in businesses that weather every storm, then I think you shoudl add this ‘dull’ FTSE 100 share to your portfolio!

Gym work is important, and can include weights, off-feet conditioning, interval-based work on the equipment, boxing and grappling, and more. In the early weeks, do some general, full-body strength training and something off-feet, and gradually build up your volume of running.Dams explains: “Over an eight-week period, your first three could be spent with 70% of your time doing weights and 30% conditioning, then the middle two weeks split 50-50, and 30-70 in the last three weeks.“Our heaviest week in terms of volume of running is three weeks before the first game,” Dams says. “After that the players will taper down.”If you want to get the best out of pre-season, ask a professional trainer to put together the best programme to help you achieve your goals.

There is more running involved than in 15-a-side games and the matches are played at a faster pace, so it’s the perfect way to test your fitness.Pre-season friendlies are also a good way to load players gradually and reintroduce contact. Rotating the full squad means players can start with, 20 minutes of game time, the next week they’ll play for 40, and then 60-80 the week after. Transition programmesFollow a basic weights and conditioning programme in the weeks leading up to pre-season, so you don’t arrive cold on the first day. Dams gives the Quins squad two-week transition programmes, and says: “These mean the players don’t arrive having done nothing, and include very basic, generic weights and conditioning sessions. It’s just enough to give players some structure and prepare them for the weeks ahead.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSSkip AdAds by For all those asking, I will be available for the sevens in Rio. Queen and country. Regards.— David Flatman (@davidflatman) July 28, 2014 Take a break Before you get stuck into pre-season training, you need a good off-season to let your body recover. It’s crucial to give your body time to recuperate from injuries and fatigue. You may only need a week or two if you’ve played irregularly, but if you’ve started every Saturday you’ll need longer.This is the chance to have a few beers, too, but remember that the more damage you inflict upon your body, the harder it will be to get back to full fitness. Ease your body back into action It’s important to do some form of exercise before the serious training starts. If you’ve had any injuries, your muscles around them can weaken, so you need to strengthen them again or you will risk further harm. Harlequins’ head of performance John Dams says: “At Quins the players have two weeks of complete rest followed by a week of active rest. The aim is to get them out and doing something.”To stop your body de-conditioning, you can do on-feet activities like tennis and squash, which require different coordination to rugby, or off-feet, like swimming and cycling, which are good for those who have bad knees, backs and hips. Week 3 of preseason done looking forward to a relaxing weekend in @monartspa #getmereadyforweek4— Sean O’ Brien (@SeanOBrien1987) July 25, 2014Don’t forget skills work! This is also the time of year to get your technique up to scratch and work on set moves, so plan in plenty of skills sessions too. Play touch or seven-a-side games to work on your handling, running lines and support play.Eat right to feel bright You need to adjust your diet according to how hard you’re training, and a balanced diet is crucial. When you’re burning lots of calories you need to take more in so that you have plenty of energy. During the season, you may burn 3,000-4,000 calories a week, but during pre-season that figure may rise to 5,000-6,000.Your body will be in need of nutrients after training, and supplements are an easy way to provide those – seek advice about which one, if any, is best for you.It’s also important to stay hydrated, especially when it’s hot, so drink at least 2.5 litres of water a day. Put in the hard work now and you’ll reap the benefits when the new season kicks off.

U.S. Forecast: Destructive Storm Surge, High Winds in Florida, Georgia and the CarolinasAccording to the latest National Hurricane Center’s forecast, the center of Irma will pass over the Florida Keys Sunday morning, then track toward the southwest Florida coast later Sunday. (MORE: Irma’s Notable Extremes)Hurricane warnings now extend as far north as the Flagler/Volusia County line on the Atlantic side, and up to Citrus County, Florida on the Gulf side. Included in the hurricane warnings are the Florida Keys, Naples, Ft. Myers, the Tampa/St. Petersburg metro, Miami, and West Palm Beach.Hurricane warnings also continue in the northwest Bahamas and a part of the north coast of Cuba. Hurricane warnings mean either hurricane conditions are occurring, or are expected to occur within 36 hours.A hurricane watch is also in effect for portions of north Florida, including the Jacksonville metro area. A watch means hurricane conditions are possible within 48 hours.A storm surge warning has also been issued from the Volusia/Brevard County Line around the peninsula to Citrus County, including the Florida Keys and Tampa Bay. A storm surge watch is in effect from north of the Volusia/Brevard County line to the Volusia/Flagler County line on the east coast and on the west coast from north of Citrus County to the Suwannee River. Story Highlights Please enter your name here Please enter your comment! Irma may take advantage of deep, warm water in the Florida Straits and reintensify before striking Florida with at least Category 4 intensity Sunday.At this intensity, small deviations in wind speed intensity will not significantly change impacts.

Less than 24 hours away from strking South FloridaFrom the Weather Channel Another concern into early week will be for isolated tornadoes, especailly to the north and east of where the center passes.Recap: Leeward Islands BatteredThe Leeward Islands were pounded by Irma late Tuesday into Wednesday.Irma’s 185-mph winds made it the strongest hurricane to strike the Leeward Islands region, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach, a tropical scientist at Colorado State University. That beat out the Okeechobee Hurricane (1928) and David (1979), which both had 160-mph winds at their peak in the Leeward Islands.Irma first passed over Barbuda, an island of 1,600 residents, with gusts of at least 155 mph overnight into Wednesday morning. A storm surge of about eight feet was also recorded.Early Wednesday morning, the eye of Irma then moved over St. Martin, St. Barthelemy and near Anguilla, where sustained winds of 117 mph were measured.(LATEST NEWS: Irma Slams Caribbean)Hurricane-force winds and heavy rain were reported in the Virgin Islands. A wind gust of 131 mph was reported at Buck Island, and a gust of 87 mph was measured on St. Thomas Wednesday, Sept. 6.In addition, a 111-mph gust was reported on Culebra.Check back with weather.com for updates on Irma through the weekend for the very latest. We will be updating our coverage of Irma frequently based on the latest forecast guidance for its future track and intensity. Projected PathThe red-shaded area denotes the potential path of the center of the tropical cyclone. Note that impacts (particularly heavy rain, high surf, coastal flooding) with any tropical cyclone may spread beyond its forecast path. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Dangerous surf and coastal flooding will likely exist throughout the southeastern U.S. coastline even well away from Irma’s center this weekend into early next week.In fact, the National Weather Service in Charleston, South Carolina, says that record tide levels, topping those during Hurricane Matthew, are possible at Ft. Pulaski, Georgia, and storm surge at Charleston Harbor Monday could top that seen from Matthew, exceeded only by Hurricane Hugo in 1989.If that wasn’t enough, up to 25 inches of rain is possible in parts of South Florida and Cuba. Here are the latest rainfall forecasts from the National Hurricane Center and Weather Prediction Center:Northern Cuba: 10 to 15 inches, with isolated 20 inch totalsSouthern Cuba: 5 to 10 inches, with isolated 15 inch totalsWestern Bahamas: 3 to 6 additional inches, with isolated 10 inch totalsThe Florida Keys: 10 to 20 inches, with isolated 25 inch totalsFlorida peninsula and southeast Georgia: 8 to 15 inches, with isolated 20 inch totalsEastern Florida Panhandle: 3 to 6 inches, with isolated 8 inch totalsRest of eastern Georgia, western South Carolina, western North Carolina: 4 to 8 inchesWestern Georgia, eastern and northern Alabama, southern Tennessee: 2 to 5 inches(MORE: Beware ‘I’ Hurricanes) The following life-threatening water-level rises (storm surge) are possible in South Florida Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center, if they occur at high tide:Southwestern Florida from Captiva to Cape Sable: 8 to 12 feetCape Sable to Boca Raton, including the Florida Keys: 5 to 10 feetVenice to Captiva Island: 5 to 8 feetSuwannee River to Venice, including Tampa Bay: 3 to 5 feetBoca Raton to Flagler/Volusia County line: 2 to 4 feet(INTERACTIVE: How Much Storm Surge May Occur)There is still time to evacuate, but the window is closing. PLEASE evacuate as instructed by local emergency managers if you’re in an area where storm surge is forecast. Water (storm surge, rainfall flooding) is what claims the large majority of lives in hurricanes.Irma’s wind field is large. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. These winds will expand eastward across the entire peninsula.Depending on the exact track of Irma, locations in the hurricane warning in central and southern Florida could see devastating to catastrophic impacts, including structural damage and widespread power and communication outages from high winds. The National Weather Service said that areas in the hurricane warning could be uninhabitable for weeks or months. After that, Irma’s center is increasingly expected to track up the Florida west coast Sunday into Monday, then into Georgia Monday night into Tuesday.Significant inland wind damage and rainfall flooding could occur in parts of central and north Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, as well.A forecast model developed by Seth Guikema (University of Michigan), Steven Quiring (Ohio State University) and Brent McRoberts (Texas A&M) predicted 2 to 3 million customers could be without power from Florida to east Tennessee from Irma’s widespread winds. The Anatomy of Fear A GOES-16 satellite image taken Friday, Sep. 8, 2017, at 10:45 UTC shows all three hurricanes: Hurricane Irma, center, approaches Cuba and Florida, with Hurricane Katia, left, in the Gulf of Mexico, and Hurricane Jose, right, in the Atlantic Ocean.
