Two distinct seasonal Asian source regions for mineral dust deposited in Greenland (NorthGRIP)

first_imgA four-year, high-resolution (<2 mo) record of mineralogical and isotopic (Sr and Nd) characteristics of mineral dust deposited at NorthGRIP confirms the seasonal variability in the eastern Asian source regions providing dust to northern Greenland at present. Comparison of the Sr and Nd isotopic compositions of the dust with those of potential source area samples from China and Mongolia support that the Takla Makan desert is the primary source, supplying most if not all of the mineral particles during the dusty spring season. A different source area, however, plays a role during most of year and during the low-dust season ( summer through winter) in particular. Inner Mongolian deserts of northern China, including the Tengger and the Mu Us, are likely candidates but the Mongolian Gobi is ruled out as a significant contributor to Greenland.last_img read more

Philip Bowcock – William Hill sees international growth as the fix for potential UK downturns

first_img Submit Share UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Share Related Articles Flutter moves to refine merger benefits against 2020 trading realities August 27, 2020 StumbleUpon SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Updating investors on William Hill Plc Trading, Group CEO Philip Bowcock has detailed that the  FTSE bookmaker will move to prioritise expansion within overseas markets in an attempt to combat any potential growth impacts felt from forthcoming UK regulatory increases.William Hill recorded positive results for its 17-week trading period to 24 October, however, Bowcock believes further international growth will plug any gaps in UK revenue triggered by the forthcoming fixed-odds betting terminal (FOBT) restrictions.He said: “We are still predominantly UK-based with UK revenues, and if you think that regulation is only going in one direction then by default you need to start thinking about diversification outside the UK.”The statement also detailed strong US growth, driven by mobile growth, a factor that William Hill will look to build on in 2018. The company is further “looking forward to” the impending Supreme Court decision relating to the relaxing of the laws surrounding sports betting, and a positive result will inevitably further the plans for an extended international footprint.In terms of having the right personnel in place to oversee this growth and transition, as group leader Bowcock speaks with confidence with regards to William Hill’s new executive team and governance, describing leadership as “well set” to deliver on corporate goals, as “the evidence of the last twelve months has proven that”.The Australia ProblemAs detailed in the Q3 trading statement, there was a 5% drop in amounts wagered in Australia – a blight on an otherwise positive quarterly update. Bowcock highlighted the ban on bookmakers offering credit to customers, which came into place at the end of April, as the primary factor for the decline. The Point of Consumption (POC) Tax has also been in place in the state of South Australia since July, and Bowcock notes that William Hill are “working on the assumption” that this will become a nationwide tax by 2019. With that in mind, he describes how the company is “being very careful about investment at this time”, and is deploying a short-term mindset when dealing with this market. Nevertheless, Bowcock dismissed any idea of William Hill abandoning the Australian market completely, noting that “they bet more than anyone else, and that makes it a very interesting place to be”. He summarised by saying “we are comfortable with where we are and we continue to aim to grow”.last_img read more
