PayPoint benefits from mobile foray

first_imgThursday 12 August 2010 8:25 pm whatsapp PayPoint benefits from mobile foray whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULL PAYPOINT yesterday said its move into mobile phone payments had helped revenue rise seven per cent between March and July.The firm, whose services include bill payment terminals and ATM machines, made net revenue of £26m from 29 March to 25 July after its takeover of PayByPhone, which allows motorists to pay for their parking by credit or debit card over their mobiles.Bill payment, internet and retail services also grew in the period.PayPoint said bill and general payment transactions were in line with its expectations. In Romania, it processed more than three million bill payments, up more than 200 per cent.Net cash as of 25 July fell to £6m from £15m on 28 March.PayPoint is currently in a battle with lottery operator Camelot, which wants to give customers the chance to pay bills at their terminals.The National Lottery Commission (NLC) has launched an investigation into Camelot’s plans and could block the move. PayPoint has argued that Camelot’s move would be unfair on its rivals who are already in the payments business. The NLC has already blocked one Camelot plan.

Can Matt Symons complete his incredible journey?

first_img TAGS: London Irish His memories of playing for the Chiefs are ones to cherish. “One of the hardest but also best matches was against the Stormers at Newlands. Both of us were unbeaten and it was a sell-out. Because of the whole apartheid issue, Kiwi teams have a lot of fans in Cape Town, so it was almost a 50:50 crowd. It was 30-plus degrees, a tough game and we came out on top.“We had Sonny (Bill Williams), who’s Muslim. We had security coming out at the airport, people climbing up poles and telephone boxes. All the teams get security but we had people camped outside our hotel because of the All Blacks in our team and Sonny in particular. There’d be people getting out of cars to get your autographs. When we came to the stadium people were cheering and afterwards what seemed like a thousand people surrounded the coach. It was just madness.”High five: Congratulating Chiefs team-mate Aaron Cruden for a winning kick last February (Pic: Getty)Fans sometimes ask him what it was like locking down with Brodie Retallick, a former World Rugby Player of the Year, but Symons says: “People always single him out but it’s not just him. The way they develop their squad in the All Black environment, there’s a lot of parts to that puzzle. Everyone does their role really well to allow Brodie to make those decisions: a good carry on the other side of the pitch, a good clean, good distribution.“And that’s not necessarily the style all teams should play with. It works very well for the All Blacks but you couldn’t replicate that in many teams because of their (superior) skill-sets, and physically as well.”With former Chiefs coach Tom Coventry now head man at London Irish, the Exiles could never be accused of neglecting their skills work. But nor are they putting the cart before the horse. “There are parts to our game we’ve got to get right first, and ultimately that was always what the Chiefs did, as well as the All Blacks,” Symons says.“Rugby’s a physical game, it’s a contact game, you’ve got to win the gain-line. There’s no point being able to throw a 20-metre spin pass as a prop if you’re not scrummaging. So you’ve got to do your core roles and get that dealt with first before you worry about the X-factor.”Falcons testAs we know, Symons heeded Rowntree’s advice and came home to Irish, whom he is captaining in the long-term absence of George Skivington. This weekend’s match is a massive one, Irish hosting a Newcastle team sitting one place and two points above them in the table.The Exiles make two changes to the side beaten at Gloucester last week, with Jebb Sinclair replacing Blair Cowan in the back row and Topsy Ojo being named at full-back. Newcastle, seeking their first league win at the Madejski Stadium since 2009, bring in Scotland hooker Scott Lawson and tighthead Paddy Ryan, and their bench features Andy Goode – five months after he pulled out of a London Irish contract for medical reasons.Symons will relish the occasion. His journey shows that you don’t have to follow the conventional route of academy and/or age-grade rugby to reach the top – some people are simply late developers. But you still need people to back you.“Scott Robertson was the guy who gave me my biggest break. I owe him a lot. He was the head coach at Canterbury who offered me a contract for two years, for the ITM Cup.“All I wanted was an opportunity, to maybe get a good reference off a coach to then come back and play here. To help me here, to help me anywhere.” Rejected in his teens, the London Irish skipper has taken a circuitous route to Premiership rugby and is now pushing for England inclusion. Alan Pearey reports LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Now 26, he is showing the defensive tenacity and lineout authority that served him so well in Super Rugby. Eddie Jones is spoilt for choice for English second-rows but Symons is making a case for inclusion in the squad announced next week. And if doesn’t happen then, maybe it will next time. You can be sure he will never give up.No way through: Symons made 25 tackles against Wasps at Twickenham, with no misses (Pic: Getty)London Irish v Newcastle Falcons, Sunday 10 January (kick-off 1pm), live on BT Sport Not the least of Graham Rowntree’s achievements during his time with England was a chat he had in New Zealand during England’s 2014 summer tour. It was there that he met Matt Symons, the 6ft 7in Chiefs lock, and convinced him that it may be in his interests to find himself a Premiership contract.Last year Symons became eligible for the All Blacks but he is as English as jellied eels, having been born in Essex and raised in Hertfordshire. Had Saracens not rejected the once gangly teenager – “I played a couple of games for their academy side but they didn’t feel I was up to it” – then maybe Symons would now be enjoying life at the top of the Premiership instead of staring up from the bottom with London Irish.To some extent it was that very rejection that fuelled his ambition, but the desire to do something special with his life was already deep within him. “I was a driven kid,” he says. “For me, I have fun when I’m being successful.”Thus it was that when his mum read a newspaper ad appealing for tall, gifted athletes interested in becoming an elite rower, Symons jumped at the chance.“The way it was pitched to me was, ‘If you get on this programme, you’ll have a good shot at making the (2012) Olympics’. I knew nothing about rowing but that appealed to me. And I took that option over playing men’s club rugby at a lower-league side, which a lot of kids do. I wanted to grasp that opportunity.”Burning the midnight oilSymons got through the testing and, at 18, moved to Reading to train full-time. The training was brutal but he was meeting the demands of the programme when he suffered a new setback – arm injuries that, even after surgery, forced him to quit the sport at 21.Undaunted, he returned to rugby, working his way into Esher’s Championship team whilst studying for a geography degree at Reading. “I was driving an hour and an half each way (to the club) and it was pretty tiring,” he says. Most students don’t get beyond the campus bar.In yet more startling shows of initiative, Symons contacted every Premiership club in search of a contract and, when that plan drew a blank, flew to New Zealand – the day after his finals – to play club rugby for High School Old Boys in Christchurch. Aaron Mauger and Reuben Thorne were the coaches, which tells you everything you need to know about the standard. Symons sometimes locked down with Thorne in the engine room.An Englishman abroad: In action for Christchurch club High School Old Boys in 2012 (Pic: Getty Images)“It’s a good level. You’ve got guys farming, working 50-hour weeks, who just want to play amateur rugby, you’ve got young guys coming through who want to play for the All Blacks, you’ve got professional players dropping down. In New Zealand if you’re not playing for your ITM Cup team or Super Rugby team, you’re still turning out every week for your club side. It’s the thing that keeps them so grounded because ultimately they just want to play rugby.”Symons felt comfortable in such company and when Canterbury were looking around to top up their ITM Cup squad, they gave him a call. In 2014 he was offered a two-year contract and soon he was captaining a Crusaders Development team containing the likes of Owen Franks and Ryan Crotty. “I was having to give a talk and I’d never even played an ITM Cup game,” he says.He soon put that right and, continuing his heady journey in pro sport, in next to no time was being signed by the Chiefs franchise that had just won back-to-back Super Rugby titles.“I thought as an Englishman going over there that there would be a lot more obstacles, but they didn’t bat an eyelid the whole time. I could have been Kiwi, Japanese, anything, it wouldn’t have mattered.“There are a few more English people over there than you think, but my advice (to aspiring young players) is go for it. Go to Australia as well. Go to South Africa. Why not? Even from just from a lifestyle point of view, why not?”Sonny mania Climbing frame: Symons rises above Courtney Lawes during Irish’s win over Saints (Pic: Action Images) last_img read more

Sudanese bishop calls for urgent action in war-affected Nuba Mountains

first_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail of the Diocese of Kadugli. Photo: Episcopal Church of Sudan[Anglican Communion News Service] A bishop from Sudan has appealed for emergency action for the people affected by the war in Sudan’s Nuba Mountains.Bishop of the Diocese of Kadugli, the Rt. Rev. Andudu Adam Elnail, said people, especially those from the villages of Kao Nyaro and Warne, are facing starvation and death due to the humanitarian crises in the South Kordofan State of Sudan.“Those who have managed to escape are now living under trees and getting soaked by the rains. They have no tents, no food, no safe drinking water, and no medicine,” he said. “Some organizations in the area have given them a little sorghum, which was not enough for all the people and some have already died.”Recently, the governor of Sudan’s South Kordofan state, Adam Al-Faki, described the ongoing war in his state as “intricate” because “it involves family members on both sides” and acknowledged that it would not stop without the spread of education.Thousands of people have been displaced since the conflict began in mid-2011. The latest reports reaching the bishop from Malakal, an area bordering Nuba Mountains and South Sudan, suggest that the humanitarian situation is reaching “catastrophic levels.”“People are still on the way walking from the Nuba Mountains to cross the boarder of South Sudan, which is a long distance with no food, causing the deaths of 20-25 people every day,” he said.“We are calling for support so that we can meet these people. We sent $17,000 three weeks ago, but it is not enough.”The bishop has since appealed to Christians all over the world to pray for the people of Nuba Mountains so that peace can prevail between the people and the government. He also called for prayer for himself and his term as they travel around their diocese.Fighting in the region continues, with the Sudanese Armed Forces and rebels making contradictory claims over who is winning the battles. But whether one end is winning or losing, it’s the people on the ground, especially women and children who continue to bear the brunt of the war.

Photo: Lambeth Palace[Anglican Communion News Service] The historic first official meeting since the Reformation between a Pope and an Archbishop of Canterbury fifty years ago; and with it the dedication of the Anglican Centre of Rome, is being celebrated with a host of events that will take place throughout the year.Pope Paul VI and Archbishop Michael Ramsey met twice on 22 March 1996 and again the following day. The first meeting took place in the morning in the Sistine Chapel. Formal addresses were given and gifts exchanged.The Pope gave Archbishop Ramsey a 12th century fresco of Christ in Glory from a church in the north of Italy. It now hangs in the Crypt Chapel at Lambeth. They met again in the afternoon for private talks in the Pope’s library. The following day there was a service in the Church of St Paul without the Walls during which there was a common declaration and a gift of a ring from Pope Paul VI to Archbishop Ramsey.The meeting paved the way for the creation of the first official process of dialogue between Anglicans and the Vatican since the Reformation – the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC).The Anglican Centre in Rome was dedicated on 22 March 1966; it opened a few months later. “The Anglican Communion cherishes the Holy Scriptures and the Catholic Creeds,” Archbishop Ramsey said in a short speech at the dedication ceremony. “In history, it values the lessons of the Reformation of the sixteenth century, and it values no less the continuity which it claims with the ancient church.“In spirituality, it learns from saints and teachers of its own, while it also tries to learn from saints and teachers of every period in the West and in the East. In theology, it learns from the Scriptures, the ancient fathers and the liturgy, while it strives to use whatever light is shed by modern knowledge upon the understanding of man and the world.“The Anglican student is often a debtor to writers within the Roman Catholic Church. This Centre is an attempt to repay that debt by making available the resources of Anglican learning to any who will come and enjoy them.”To mark the anniversary of the dedication, a special Eucharist will be celebrated at the Church of St Andrew by the Wardrobe in the City of London. The Celebrant will be the Archdeacon of London, assisted by the associate director of the Anglican Centre in Rome, the Revd Marcus Walker. The former governor of the centre, and current secretary, the Revd Barry Nichols, will preach.Anglicans around the world are being asked to pray for the work of the centre on Sunday 29 May – which has been designated as an Anglican Communion Day of Prayer for the Anglican Centre in Rome. The date has been chosen as the Sunday nearest the feast-day of Saint Augustine of Canterbury.A special choral evensong to mark the anniversary will be held in Westminster Abbey on Tuesday 14 June. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will preach at the service.And a two-day meeting will be held in Rome from Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 October to mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Anglican Centre in Rome by Cardinal Willebrands. Details of the programme for that event will be released later.

Heavy rain showers through the weekend led to localized flooding in low areas. Average temperatures for the week were 47.1 degrees, 0.2 degrees below normal for the State. Rainfall amounts varied from 0.78 inches to 3.10 inches over the week. There were 1.9 days available for fieldwork this week.The cold snap and stormy weather left some low-lying wheat fields over saturated with moisture. In spite of the dreary and blustery weather, the wheat crop was reported to be in good condition, growing well and greening up nicely. Some farmers were able to apply nitrogen to the fields before the storms came. Pastures and hay fields are also greening up well with the extra moisture. Mint planting has begun in the Northwest.Due to the limited days available for fieldwork, farmers have otherwise spent their time hauling grain, burning down cover crops, laying and repairing tile, calving, preparing farm equipment for spring plantings and enrolling in 2016 FSA programs.
