Robust eurobond sale for France

first_img whatsapp Robust eurobond sale for France France drew strong demand for its sale of €9bn (£7.6bn) worth of conventional bonds yesterday, particularly for the shorter-dated debt where investors recently elevated yields. It also sold €3bn of inflation-linked bonds, the top end of the target range, which were well-received, reflecting investors’ appetite for inflation protection, which has risen after Eurozone inflation jumped to 2.2 per cent last month. The 10-year French/German bond yield spread held steady around 36 basis points after the auction and was unchanged from levels seen at the previous settlement close.

Nevada sportsbook handle falls behind NJ in July

first_img Regions: US Nevada Nevada has once again seen its sportsbook handle fall below that of New Jersey, with customers in the state wagering a total of $235.7m in July.  Nevada has once again seen its sportsbook handle fall below that of New Jersey, with customers in the state wagering a total of $235.7m in July. Total handle was down 3.6% year-on-year decline, though a significantly higher hold for July 2019 resulted in revenue growing strongly. Sportsbook revenue for the month was $10.5m, compared to $4.1m for the prior year.Despite New Jersey reporting an 8.0% month-on-month decline in handle, its $251.4m total was still enough to surpass amounts wagered in Nevada for just the second time. New Jersey first beat Nevada – in terms of amounts wagered – in May, only to fall behind again in June. Over the month baseball was the main source of revenue for Nevada’s sportsbooks, accounting for $8.6m of the state’s sports betting total. This was offset by losses from betting on basketball and football, of $2.1m and $182,000 respectively. A further $64,000 in revenue came from parlay cards, with betting on other events making up the remaining $4.1m.The growth in sports betting revenue came as gaming revenue across all verticals rose 2.8% year-on-year to $1.02bn. A marginal decline in table, counter and card games revenue (including sports betting) to $328.1m was offset by a 4.2% increase in slot revenue, to $695.9m. Read the full story on iGB North America.

Effects of Cold Injury to Corn Uncertain Until Hharvest

first_img SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Effects of Cold Injury to Corn Uncertain Until Hharvest Facebook Twitter Previous articleHSUS Targeting Indiana AgricultureNext articleIllinois Moms To Visit Farms at Planting Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Effects of Cold Injury to Corn Uncertain Until Hharvest Farmers with recently planted and newly emerged corn need to watch their fields for cold injury, even though much of the damage likely won’t be known until harvest, a Purdue Extension corn specialist says. Corn planting has been off to a slow start for Indiana farmers due to cold temperatures and soggy soils. On May 5 the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that 20 percent of Indiana’s corn crop had been planted, compared with a 34 percent five-year average. Much of what has been planted went into cold soils, meaning farmers need to watch the crop for injury as it emerges and determine whether replanting is necessary. “Where soil moisture was acceptable for planting, some growers accepted the risks associated with cold soils and corn germination or initial seedling development and planted corn,” Bob Nielsen said. “Should they be concerned about the health of their newly planted and, in a few cases, newly emerged crops? We’ll know for certain come harvest time, but in the meantime, we can talk about possibilities.”For newly planted corn, one of the possibilities is what researchers call “imbibitional chilling injury.” This type of injury happens within 24 to 36 hours of planting when the kernel absorbs, or imbibes, water and begins the germination process. When it’s cold, this can cause damage to plant cell tissues.The symptoms of imbibitional chilling injury include kernels that are swollen but not showing other signs of germination; or slowed growth of the radicle root or coleoptile (sheath tissue that protects leaves during emergence) once the initial germination occurs.Newly planted corn also can suffer non-imbibitional chilling injury during emergence.“This type of chilling injury is more closely related to physical damage to the outer cell tissues that literally cause death of the plant part or inhibit further elongation of the affected area,” Nielsen said.That means injury can include stunting or death of the seminal root system, deformed elongation of the mesocotyl and either delayed or failed emergence.The mesocotyl is the part of the plant that connects the crown and the seed. During emergence, the mesocotyl extends and pushes the coleoptile toward the surface. Damaged sections of mesocotyl tissue stop growing, while healthy tissue continues to grow longer.“Thus, chilling injury to only part of the circumference of the mesocotyl results in the corkscrew symptom as the undamaged sections of the mesocotyl continue to elongate.”Corn also can sustain post-emergence damage if above-ground plant tissue is exposed to cold temperatures. Generally, this type of damage would require air temperatures 28 degrees Fahrenheit and colder.If that occurs, Nielsen said damage can range from minor foliar injury to death of all exposed tissue. “The good news is that the all-important growing point region of a young corn plant remains below the soil surface, safe from exposure to frost, until the V4 to V6 stages of development,” he said. “As long as temperatures are not lethally cold, ‘simple’ frost injury usually doesn’t literally kill such young corn plants.”Typically, Nielsen said, damaged plants can start to show recovery in 5-7 days, depending on temperatures. Corn plants subjected to repeat frost events, however, can sustain permanent stunting or death. But with so little corn in the ground or emerged so far in Indiana, and with few nighttime temperatures low enough for frost in the last two weeks, Nielsen said it’s unlikely there has been any above-ground corn injury.As corn starts to emerge, farmers need to get out and look at their fields to see if there’s been any cold injury and, if so, assess the severity. “Only time will tell whether corn planted during the past few weeks has suffered from the cool soils during germination,” Nielsen said. “Obviously, those ‘early’ planted fields should be scouted over the next few weeks for emergence problems.“Come October, we will know for certain whether this year’s early planting risk-takers will have ‘won the game’ or not.”For corn updates throughout the growing season, follow Purdue Extension’s Chat ‘n Chew Café, managed by Nielsen, at https://www.agry.purdue.edu/ext/corn/cafe/.

The fact that he works for Sawt Al-Aqsa, a radio station affiliated to Hamas, may explain the raid. As there is no indication that the authorities intend to charge him, the grounds for his arrest may be alleged threat to Israel’s security.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the release of all Palestinian journalists held in Israeli prisons and detention centres, in many cases without any charges being brought against them.The most recent previous case was that of Bahaa Khairi Attalah Moussa, the head of Al-Asir, a satellite TV station for Palestinian prisons, who was arrested on 17 May near Jenin, in the northern part of the West Bank. last_img read more
