London Clubs aims for black after loss hits £120m

London Clubs aims for black after loss hits £120m

London Clubs International, the debt-laden casino operator, yesterday insisted it could trade its way back to the black after crashing £120m into the red at the full-year.

 

A further £62.6m writedown on its investment in the Aladdin casino in Las Vegas, now in Chapter 11, and poor trading from its high-rolling casinos in London have left the group with net assets of just £3m which supports £224m of debts.

 

London Clubs said that “following lengthy discussions” it had reached an agreement with its banks, led by the Bank of Nova Scotia, to extend its debt facilities to June 2004.

 

The banking syndicate, which includes Bank of Scotland and Societe Generale, has also advanced a further £15m of working capital.

 

In return, “the company has committed to its lenders to undertake a strategic review of the options available to the group and to significantly reduce current debt levels by September 1 2003”. It will also explore how to raise a further £20m of funding.

 

Barry Hardy, chief executive, said: “The debt can be supported by the company’s underlying cash-flow potential. That’s why the banks are prepared to roll over the debt. If they weren’t happy they wouldn’t have done it.

 

“What the banks have concluded is that the value of the group’s assets exceeds the money that is owed to them.”

 

He said new chairman Michael Beckett, appointed yesterday, would now review the business.

 

Options for raising money included a sale and leaseback of its 50 St James’s upmarket casino, where Mr Hardy believes the freehold is worth £20m, and of its 70pc stake in its Johannesburg casino.

 

He admitted, however, that last year’s poor trading, had not helped.

 

While group sales were £1m higher at £152.5m, group operating profits, which exclude the Aladdin write-off, fell from £19.2m to £200,000.

 

The board admitted that the “underlying business has inevitably suffered” from the amount of time management spent talking to its banks. Mr Hardy said the group had been hit by “several millions of pounds of bad debts”, won less at the tables and incurred “substantial professional fees”.

 

Bad debts are believed to have topped £7m, while fees to lawyers and advisers were over £2m.

 

Mr Hardy said he was “confident of recovering the bad debts”, while trading UFA in the first few months of this year was ahead of last year.

 

He admitted he had received “a number of approaches from people who have seen the company is in a weak position” but “selling assets cheaply does not achieve anything”.

 

He said the group would consider joint ventures with companies looking to enter Britain’s deregulating gaming industry.

 

The shares rose 0.25 to 14.5p, valuing the group at £21.3m.

There Is Such a Situs Judi Slot Thing as Bad Publicity

There Is Such a Situs Judi Slot Thing as Bad Publicity

Online gambling has been getting a lot of coverage lately in the mainstream press, most of which has been negative. Newspapers like to talk about broken marriages, massive credit card debt, and shady offshore operations because those kinds of stories sell papers. But they don’t seem to be interested in writing much else, and that’s hurting the online casino industry.

Two of the most recent examples of this growing trend appeared in the New York Times and the National Post over the past few weeks.

The Times article was about the credit card processing problems that some casinos are facing, and it started off with a bang: “Mining the margins of legality” was the first line. The article paints a glum, but relatively accurate, picture of an industry that is struggling because of its bad reputation. And that bad reputation is due in part to – wait for it – bad press.

The second article, which appeared in the Canadian Post, was about a new ‘organization’ that has been created to supposedly safeguard players from the scourge of online casinos. Unlike the Times article, this piece wasn’t encumbered by the normal constraints of balanced reporting.

Much of the article is devoted to the so-called problems with Situs Judi Slot online casinos and the (questionable) solutions offered by this company. The worst part was the last sentence, a quote from a disgruntled player: “‘You didn’t really seem to have a fair chance of winning.'”

That was particularly tough to swallow in light of the fact that the author didn’t bother to talk to a casino operator to get that side of the story. But that wouldn’t have added much to the piece, would it?

Even though these articles deal with different issues, they both approach the topic with a similar bias: online gambling is bad and players are likely to get burned. I can understand taking that stand in an editorial, but unless I’m sorely mistaken, these were supposed to be news pieces.

So why do articles like this keep showing up in the mainstream (i.e. non-gambling) press? Because greed, corruption, crime, and personal loss – all of which are rampant in the online gambling industry if you believe what you read – make for good copy.

The business of Internet wagering has developed a reputation, in no small part thanks to the media, for being a Caribbean-operated shell game designed to defraud honest, hard-working people. People who just happened to find a casino site, register, download the software package, enter their credit card information, buy credits, and wager money. But that’s not the point here.

The biggest problem with most of these stories is that they conveniently ignore the issue of personal responsibility in the search for online gambling’s latest victim. No one is forcing these people to place a bet on the Internet, and anyone who gets burned after blindly sending off their credit card information doesn’t exactly deserve a whole lot of sympathy, never mind a few hundred words in an international publication.

Industry experts would be the first to agree that there have been unfortunate incidents in the past with casinos folding and players losing their money, but things have changed a fair bit in the last few years. What’s more, those incidents don’t mean that the whole industry is Evil – contrary to what most newspapers would have people believe.

The reality, however, is that all this bad press has a ripple effect, especially on people who don’t know anything about the industry or play at Internet casinos. Every casino gets tarred with the same sensationalized brush, regardless of the type of operation they run.

The online wagering industry needs to get off its collective butt and do a little spin doctoring of its own to improve its image. People who don’t already play need to hear – from a reputable source – that gambling online is fun, that it’s safe, and that people do actually win big money.

This is going to be an uphill battle because the Net gambling community doesn’t have a unified voice like the American Gaming Association to sing its praises, but it is an important one. And if casino operators aren’t careful, they may wake up one morning to find that all the bad publicity has put them out of business.…

Down goes Qiu Qiu Pkv Brazil!

Down goes Qiu Qiu Pkv Brazil!

The Selecao are supposed to be invincible. The titans of the soccer world, indestructible to the efforts of lesser countries.

A Goliath in yellow and blue.

And Mexico? Psh. They just lost to a bunch of Gringos…

Thanks to the boys at Univision, I was able to watch a wonderfully exciting Qiu Qiu Pkv match tonight.

El-Tri played the role of David wonderfully in an upset win. A quick-strike five minutes resulted in two goals for the underdogs with much to prove.

The Brazilians were in their usual attack-mode, but could do nothing to get the ball past Guillermo Ochoa. The 21-year old Mexican backstop was stingier than Mormon at a strip club.

For moments, the samba stars showed all the skill and talent in the world. But what good is it if you can’t get the ball in the net?

I guess, Hugo Sanchez is off the hot seat now for a while. This is potentially a program-saving result.

And Nery Castillo (right)?

He keeps proving that he is the best player in CONCACAF. Write that one down.

It’s not hard to see why Castillo was once considered one of the best prospects in the world. Remember that a work permit issue kept him from joining the Red Devils in Manchester years ago.

Anyways, Mexico hasn’t won anything in a long time.

The sports world is more than familiar with soccer hooligans and out-of-control parents.

Combine those two and you have this soccer mom, who attacked a 13-year old girl and a ref the other day.

“A female parent from the visiting team came running onto the pitch and attacked a 13-year-old. She pushed the 13-year-old onto the ground, so the girl was lying on her back,” Tor Eriksen of the Bardufoss regional sports association (BOIF) told NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting).

The BOIF girls were called a range of nasty names, and were also told to “get their ugly asses off the field”, NRK reports.

That’s mean stuff.

“The referee was completely “shaky”, and the players were crying,” Eriksen said.

Not as bad as this soccer mom, but still reprehensible stuff.

 

Soccer craziness, it seems, sees no boundaries.

GAMBLING: NBC to air poker tourney

GAMBLING: NBC to air poker tourney

NBC Sports plans to announce today that it will produce its own Las Vegas-based poker tournament — a move that could be a prelude toward landing the World Series of Poker on network television.

NBC will film the National Heads-Up Poker Championship, a showdown between 64 players at the Golden Nugget in early March, just the latest in a series of new television programs aimed at capitalizing on poker’s growing popularity.

The event, which features a $1.5 million purse and will air on four consecutive Sundays in May from 9 a.m.-10 a.m. (noon to 1 p.m. on the East Coast), prior to the network’s telecast of the Arena Football League. The tournament will conclude with a two-hour finale on May 22 from 10 a.m. to noon. (1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern time).

Unlike other televised poker events, the format will be head-to-head competition with a single elimination. Players will pay a $20,000 buy-in and play no-limit Texas Hold ’em. The overall winner will receive $500,000.

“It’s almost like an NCAA (basketball) tournament format where you have 64 players and get them down to one overall champion,” said Jon Miller, senior vice president for NBC Sports. “The most dramatic phase of each game is when it comes down to the final two players. It’s in these heads-up matches that top players play their opponent more than the cards with a lot of bluffing and table talk.”

Miller said an NBC producer who has worked on NASCAR and the Olympics came up with the idea for a tournament.

“Poker has found a tremendous audience with a great following. One of our top producers who has worked on NASCAR and the Olympics came up with this idea,” Miller said.

Miller said the event would be filmed March 4-6 and players would be seeded into groupings.

Miller said NBC looked at other venues around the country, but decided Las Vegas was the right location for the tournament, which will include a recognizable field of players, including poker legends Doyle Brunson, Howard Lederer and Johnny Chan, and the two most recent World Series of Poker champions, Chris Moneymaker and Greg Raymer.

“Las Vegas gives this event a tremendous amount of credibility,” Miller said. “This is where a Bandarq poker championship should be held.” Rob Dondero, executive vice president with R&R; Partners, said the time slot for the broadcasts and their national scope could be worth $500,000 in exposure to both the Golden Nugget and Las Vegas for each telecast.

“They may get fairly decent ratings for an early Sunday morning time slot,” Dondero said. “The Nugget will get exposure from having its name on the table felt and the cards and through some property shots.”

Miller said invites had been sent to players and he expects the field to be filled quickly.

“Poker has been exploding in popularity the last couple of years,” Brunson said in a statement. “The only thing missing was having a tournament on a network TV. As a player, I couldn’t be happier.”

NBC has had success with two televised poker events shown the last two years opposite the Super Bowl pregame coverage, Miller said. This year’s event, the Poker Superstars Championship, scored a 2.2 rating opposite an National Basketball Association game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets, which had a 2.0 rating. Miller said the Las Vegas event will add to NBC’s poker credentials.

With Harrah’s Entertainment announcing in January that it had retained the former president of CBS Sports as a consultant to renegotiate its agreement with ESPN to televise the World Series of Poker, Miller said NBC might want to get in on the bidding.

“When we got the U.S. Open and our golf package, we had to show we knew how to do golf,” Miller said. “With what we’ve accomplished so far with poker, the World Series of Poker is something we’d like to take a look at. Poker has found a tremendous audience with a great following.”

Harrah’s obtained the rights to the World Series of Poker last year when it purchased downtown Las Vegas’ Binion’s Horseshoe. It sold the downtown casino to MTR Gaming Group last year, but retained both the Horseshoe name and the World Series of Poker.

Harrah’s plans to hold this year’s event at the Rio beginning the first week of June. The no-limit Texas hold’em main event will be played in mid-July with the final two days, scheduled for July 14-15, taking place at Binion’s for the final time.…

Korea All Set For Poker Online Terpercaya UAE

Korea All Set For Poker Online Terpercaya UAE

 

 

A World Cup qualifier against UAE would not usually be a huge game but Wednesday’s clash in Seoul promises to be a big, big night for South Korean football.

 

What should happen in such a situation, and what has usually happened in the past, is that the host enjoys a fairly comfortable victory and takes a step towards what would be a seventh successive World Cup.

 

And yet, there are nerves everywhere. Nerves at the Korean Football Association that the team will miss out, dealing a huge blow to the sport in the Poker Online Terpercaya Land of the Morning Calm, nerves among the media who don’t want to imagine a World Cup without Korea, nerves among the players who dream of the chance to showcase their talents on the biggest stage of all, nerves among the fans who are rightly proud of Korea’s World Cup record and nerves among the coaching staff who could soon find themselves out of a job.

 

A 1-1 tie against North Korea in Shanghai in September was a reasonable, if slightly disappointing result –though the performance was poor- and leaves no room for error at home against the weakest member of the group. As well as North Korea and UAE, Asian powerhouses Iran and Saudi Arabia are the other two members of the group. Only the top two progresses to South Africa – third place means play-offs and if you thought things were tense now, winner-takes-all elimination games play havoc with the blood pressure.

 

But that is way in the future. With tricky trips to Riyadh, against a team that Korea has lost three and tied two of its last five games, and Tehran where the East Asians have never won an official match, up next, it is imperative that the full three points are deposited in the bank tonight.

 

If not, coach Huh Jung-moo is likely to be out of the door and a big-name foreign coach drafted in as a jittery KFA looks to salvage the campaign before it is too late. Huh is showing no signs of the pressure and has vowed to attack the West Asians from the beginning.

 

There are some absentees. Kim Do-heon, Lee Chun-soo, Kim Chi-gon, Kim Jin-kyu, Jung Jo-gook and Lee Jang-soo are injured. Captain Kim Nam-il is suspended but there is some good news. UAE is in something of a crisis. The West Asians have played two games so far, both at home and both were lost. In September, coach Bruno Metsu, who almost took the South Korean job in 2004, jumped ship to nearby Qatar.

 

Fellow Frenchman Dominique Bathenay is expected to play it safe in Seoul but knows that a good result could resurrect UAE’s World Cup dreams.

 

“South Korea is a strong team,” said a tired-looking Bathaney as he arrived at Incheon International Airport on Monday.

 

“We know many of their players but we are going to focus just on our own team and how we are going to play. It looks as if two from South Korea, Iran and Saudi Arabia will qualify. We have struggled from the beginning but there is still a chance for us. It will be a tough match against South Korea but we will fight for our lives until the end.”

 

That end will be virtually guaranteed if the UAE loses in Seoul. Ismail Matar is the one to watch out for. Small but stocked full of silky skills, he scored four out of seven UAE goals in the previous round of qualification and is presented with gifts of camels on a regular basis from fans.

 

Korea warmed up for the UAE game against Uzbekistan on Saturday and won 3-0. All three goals were impressive as were the players that scored them. Talented teenagers Lee Chung-yung and Ki Sung-yung play together for FC Seoul and combined well for the first goal. Daegu’s Lee Keun-ho scored twice in the second, doing enough to earn a starting place.

 

Lee Chung-young and Ki Sung-yung celebrate

 

 

“The goal has given me confidence,” said Ki who scored the only goal against North Korea in Shanghai. “It has also made me greedy for more and I am looking for a third consecutive goal against UAE. It will not be an easy game for us but we are capable of getting a good result.”

 

As tests go, the Uzbekistan game was not the best as the Central Asians were happy to attack Korea, leaving holes at the back. There will be no such easy pickings in the northwest corner of Seoul this evening.

 

UAE prepared by drawing 1-1 in Japan last week. It was a good result though the Japanese missed a host of chances and allowed UAE to score on the counter-attack. It is a scenario not unfamiliar to Korean fans and a repeat tonight would signal the start of a turbulent few weeks in Korean soccer.

 

Despite all the nerves, that shouldn’t happen as Korea look set to take a step closer to South Africa.

One man and his log Pkv Poker Hannover

One man and his log Pkv Poker Hannover

 

 

Off to see Mexico again. This time meeting my friend Manuel would be no problem. Or so I thought. Boarded the train at Berlin, checked the train number, the TV monitor onboard and the on train leaflet that shows the stops and all the connections. Heard different announcements on the train reeling off what I thought were the connections from the forthcoming stations throughout the journey.

 

All of a sudden we stopped at a station that wasn’t on the schedule! We were at Wolfsburg, and we were meant to be slightly further north at Braunschweig. I quickly found a map and realised that the connections I needed to make were in jeopardy. I approached a conductor about my predicament, he was sympathetic at first, but when I told him where I wanted to go he offered a simple shrug of the shoulders. Decided I would get off at the next station and work things out from there. Arriving at what to me was the middle of Pkv Poker nowhere, it seemed like a ghost station, and that the conductor had been right. The train I had just departed showed as running 30 minutes late, but after a frantic few minutes working out exactly where I was and finding a train timetable, all was well, I would arrive a mere four minutes later.

 

Once again there were thousands of Mexicans all over the city and as before a large number did not have tickets. News had now got out about the number of Mexicans and the chance to make some money. The going rate 30 minutes before kick off – €800!

 

Saturday 17th June Elze. Mannheim. Frankfurt. Kaiserslautern. Mannheim

 

This World Cup has seen a number of entrepreneurs join in the proceedings. The usual people offering bed and breakfast have been seen at the train stations, and around the stadium, locals are selling cold drinks. Added to this FIFA have now joined in, offering resale tickets at 15% above their face value and offering to change the name on tickets for €10.

 

In the Stadium Ticketing Centres, there has been a constant stream of people paying to have their name put on the ticket in order that they can enter the stadium. I felt like joining in the spirit of making money by charging them €5 to tell them not to bother.

 

However today, in Frankfurt a friend had his ID checked and of course it did not match the name on his ticket. They explained that he had to have the name changed on the ticket and he was forced to go through this administrative process. They did not charge him for this! I wondered what they would do if he already had the maximum number of tickets (seven) allocated in his name.

 

Later that evening, as I approached the stadium at Kaiserslautern an announcement was made stating that everyone should have their tickets and I.D. ready for presentation at the turnstile. If they did enforce this regulation, this would make the sale of different Football Associations’ tickets even more attractive to touts and buyers, a worrying thought as already large numbers find there way on to the black market. I had bought my ticket that evening from an American so I just had to be observant and avoid any turnstiles where they appeared to be checking I.D. No checks were carried out as I entered the stadium.

 

Despite having to put up with being surrounded by Americans, I enjoyed the game. Of course the comments made around me did put me off. For one of the sendings off I heard that the player “put his spikes up, and deserved to go”. And then talking to an American about Kasey Keller’s goal kicks which were going to his opposite number, I suggested that he would be better trying to put the ball out for a throw in. “Wow, can he do that, is that allowed, putting the ball out of play deliberately?” was the response I got. How long have they been playing football!

Free Gambling Tips – How to Win Situs Slot Contests

Free Gambling Tips – How to Win Situs Slot Contests

 

 

Based on information published in national magazines and papers, it is believed a minimum of somewhere near FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS is given away each year in PRIZE CONTESTS. Is it any wonder that smart people, men and women of all ages in about every walk of life, are taking home these prizes? Some devote their full time to solving contests for money (or prizes), usually of extremely sizeable amounts and value. Refer to about every magazine you see, a large number of newspapers, about all TV and Radio stations – to name a few – plus some publications which are 100% CONTEST NEWS.

 

Many persons receive many times larger yearly total earnings devoting their full time or a generous part of their spare time to solving the CONTESTS which come to their attention. They do it year after year as their ONLY occupation. Others like to try their hand solving contests whenever they feel in the mood, but do no have any regular time schedule to tie them down.

 

An article in the Wall Street Journal stated that many spare time contest men and women receive over $600 year after year. One situs slot article I read states that someone they knew had earned in excess of $40,000 and had solved more than 2,000 contests for prizes. Another item I read says some other contest solver won over 80 different contests to receive over $25,000 within TWELVE MONTHS.

 

However, a study of winning CONTESTS proves for the most part that it is not based on luck. Therefore, it is wise to find out what the true fundamentals are before one starts. That way alone, it is possible for one to compete with the others working on the solution of the same contest. You’ll find the necessary (easy-to-understand and follow) instructions in this text.

 

  1. Be sure that you carefully read the rules of each contest – and understand before you start – that these rules must be followed, in every particular, in order to win, or be one of the top winners. Almost half of all contests entries are thrown out, with hardly more than a single “glance” by the contest headquarters, for the sole reason, that the sender did not follow the clearly printed rules. It pays to be extremely careful when working on any contest. Check and recheck it with the rules before you mail it in.

 

  1. Be sure your entry is as neatly presented as possible. This is extremely important. Whenever possible typewrite your entry, as this adds greatly to the neatness requirement. If you do not have a typewriter or a friend who would type it for you, and you are obliged to mail it in longhand, write neatly, and only with a pen and ink – never with a lead pencil.

 

  1. Mail your entry in a suitable large sized envelope, even if you have to go to your nearest store to buy it.

 

  1. If the contest requires a box top or label, coupon, etc., make sure that you do not forget to enclose it in the envelope. (You may be surprised to learn that many do forget – so their entry is discarded – even if in all other ways it is the best, qualifying for the top prize money.)

 

You’ll find that your chances for winning are multiplied ten fold if you own or rent from a library the latest unabridged dictionary as well as a copy of a thesaurus.

 

Some of the Togel winners of the larger contests are strong in their feeling that one should have a Rhyming Dictionary, an Almanac, Atlas, and one of the many editions of a Crossword Puzzle Dictionary. Most folks have a dictionary and encyclopedia. Both are needed to properly enter most contests. Time and time again, one or the other of the books will come up with the word or answer your seek to solve the contest.

 

However, for folks just starting, and with limited money to spend, you should confine yourself to the books named above that you may now have and buy the others as you win smaller contests and can afford to.

 

  1. Visit your nearest (or best) public library and ask the clerk to help you locate their various books, magazines, etc., relating to contests. Make notes on the winners of contests – their style or entry – for your future thoughts and guidance. Jot down in a notebook the things you want to remember or refer to, or think you would be likely to want to consider at some future date. It will most likely prove priceless to you much more quickly than you think. It will help you to think of first prize winning steps to take, etc.

 

  1. An ever-increasing number of larger firms feel contests help them put their items or offers in the right hands with the best results. They therefore often start a new contest almost as soon as their last one is completed. This is especially true in contests where a wrapper, label or box top, bottle cap, etc. is requested. This method is usually very successful in getting more people to try their product than any other form of advertising.

 

  1. Above all else, make a point of having your entry worded as briefly as you can. Many contests even ask for an opinion within an specified number of words. In other words, the advertiser wants you to tell him briefly why you prefer his product to any other

 

Example:

 

“Wheatne is preferred by me because it tastes better than any other breakfast cereal, has less calories, sugar and other fattening items, with a much higher food value.”

 

“I buy ZOKA soap because it suds best in hard water, and pampers one’s skin. ZOKA keeps my complexion youthful looking as if I had used the costly creams.”

 

Always study the product completely and make notes on your scrap pad of all the ways it pleases you, over competitive brands. Make your story clean-cut with clearly understood “selling” phrases. Be enthusiastic, but always sincere and truthful. Whenever possible, tell about your personal results in using the item.

 

Don’t be in a rush to mail the entry to the contest headquarters firm – professionals put their first drafts to one side, then refer to it “tomorrow” or the next day, rewriting it over and over again (usually) until they feel it is their very best work. Then, they mail it in. It pays and pays big to follow the methods of the professionals.

 

Perhaps just about every entry sent in on any contest is “Point Rated”. If you checked your entry, before mailing it in, comparing it to the 8-point method below, you could know in advance if your entry has a far above average opportunity of being one of the winners – perhaps even the top grand prize.

 

  1. References to the accomplishments of the product or item. 2. Expression of thought, new ideas, originality. 3. Effective combination of words, sentences, etc. 4. Truthfulness – or is it believable. 5. Creativeness by fresh thoughts or comments 6. Briefness, easily understood by all. 7. Arouse thoughts, create emotions. 8. Make a sales-promoting image, text creates a “picture”.

 

I think most folks would not need teaching on jingles or limericks, where you are asked to insert the last line of a poem. These are popular and much money could be made adding the last line. The best method would be to almost memorize the lines given to you first, then make your last line either clever, or unusual, (or both). Your rhyming dictionary will be of tremendous help in winning top prizes in this form of contest.

 

Picture and Number Puzzles are always popular. These contests (in my opinion) do not need instructions beyond one’s common sense. The chief thing to remember is to carefully read the rules and to follow the instructions of the advertiser. This type of contest does require considerable time, thought and study. Take your time. Go over all rules time and time again. When you feel confident your entry is your best work, then and only then mail it in. This kind of contest almost always seems to wind up with a sizeable number of tied contestants, requiring another “run off” to decide the winner, and sometimes more than one “run off”. For this reason, it is not the most popular with the professionals. Usually “beginners” try their hand at them.

 

Name contests are always popular – a manufacturer wants the public to select a good name for one of his items, and offers a sizeable award for the entry he or his advertising agents regard as the best of all. Remember to tie the sponsor’s item or product into your reply of the name you feel is best. Make it catchy and easy to remember for the best possibility of being the winner.

 

Guessing contests, as the name implies, are in my opinion, at least 90% luck. Professionals rarely enter them. The idea is, of course, to guess how many cans of a specific brand of condensed milk is in a barrel, or how many boxes of a maker’s breakfast food is wedged into a telephone booth, etc. These are 90% luck, combined with an estimation of count.

 

Contests asking for the creation of slogans are always worked out by the professional with the use of a dictionary. These contests are the ideal ones to enter.

 

Contests in the field of photographs are both interesting and profitable, so enter when you use the instruction and guidance in this instruction text.

 

Contests for an essay as well as for word building are always of keen interest to the professional. Instruction in this text points the way to become a professional. With this set of instructions to refer to as you tackle each contest, you should have a far above average chance of being a top prize winner in an extremely short period of time. Good luck.

Land costs boost house prices with Venture studio for defeating aging

Land costs boost house prices with Venture studio for defeating aging

 

 

 

Record land shortages are forcing house prices higher according to a study conducted by estate agents FPD Savills.

 

On average the cost of land has more than doubled in the last decade and is set to rise further, particularly in the densely populated South East of England.

 

The survey also revealed that, despite the lowest level of house building since 1945, developers only have two and a half years supply of land available with planning permission already granted.

 

The report suggests the lack of supply of housing, one of the factors which has pushed prices higher, is set to continue, which is bad news for those still struggling to get onto the property ladder.

 

Impetus

 

In a bid to predict future house price movements the report looked at the level of new housing starts, land prices and how much land is currently available for development.

 

It found that the total amount of land available to be built upon with planning permission already in place had fallen by a third since 1999.

 

In 1992 the cost of land accounted for only 15% of the value of a new home, by 2002 this had risen to 34%.

 

According to the House Builders Federation (HBF) high land costs are likely to provide further impetus to UK house prices.

 

“Currently we are building 160,000 homes which is at least 60,000 too few,” Pierre Williams of the HBF told BBC News Online.

 

“As a result house prices over the last thirty years have gone through a boom-bust cycle, with the boom being more pronounced than any bust.”

 

The government has expressed concern at housing shortages, particularly for key workers in the South East of England.

 

Earlier this year, the government announced plans for the building of 200,000 homes in the South East around Milton Keynes, Thames Gateway and Stansted to tackle the shortage of affordable homes.

 

UK Land Investments Group instructs top ten planning consultancy

 

UK Land Investments Group (UKLI), which was established in February 2003, is today announcing that is has instructed one of the top ten planning consultancies in the world, in order to obtain planning permission on a number of sites.

UKLI identifies and purchases prime, undeveloped land and divides it into plots that are sold to private investors. It is committed, once all the plots are sold, to obtain planning permission on this land on behalf of its investors, thereby significantly increasing the value of the land in question.

 

To achieve this goal “Venture studio for defeating aging“, UKLI has now instructed one of industry leading planning consultancies to develop tailored strategies designed to achieve the right outcome.

 

The Legal Department explained: “Obtaining planning permission is crucial to achieving the return on investment our clients want.
