Zaven Boyrazian | Tuesday, 1st December, 2020 | More on: FDEV Image source: Getty Images As we approach the Christmas holidays, gaming stocks are set to enjoy increased sales throughout December. They have already seen enormous boosts in demand throughout this year. Because of multiple lockdown periods, everyone has been stuck at home. Thus, game development studios have seen a massive surge in player activity and game purchases.How has lockdown affected gaming stocks?Japanese gaming company Nintendo has seen its profits tripling. Its rival Sony has released a new console – PlayStation 5 – which has been selling out across the country.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…The popularity of games has been rising around the world. But the UK has experienced one of the most significant boosts. According to the Interactive Software Federation of Europe, the average time spent playing games per week has increased by 16% compared to a year ago.Time spent playing video games did see a slight decline in June as the first lockdown was lifted. However, with school being cancelled, and kids stuck at home, gaming remained immensely popular.This is undoubtedly a temporary boost to the sector since schools and offices eventually reopened. But it is not unreasonable to assume that many new players were introduced to new consoles or games during the lockdown period.Subsequently, I think it’s very likely that the growth of the gaming industry has had a permanent boost – especially since Christmas is just around the corner.A gaming stock opportunity for the Christmas holidays?All of this is excellent news for the British gaming stock Frontier Developments (LSE:FDEV). Frontier is the mastermind behind many popular titles – including Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo, and Jurassic World Evolution.The company takes a “launch and nurture” approach to its games. In other words, after a game has been released, the studio continually adds new content to keep the community engaged. This approach to business has allowed its leading titles to continue generating revenue long after their initial release date.The strategy seems to be doing the trick. Elite Dangerous, Planet Coaster, and Jurassic World Evolution were released in 2014, 2016, and 2018, respectively. Yet collectively, they represented over 60% of 2020’s revenue stream due to ongoing sales on new platforms, as well as paid expansion packs.Future performance is looking promising.Frontier is expecting total revenue between May 2020 and May 2021 of between £90m and £95m. If achieved, this represents a potential 25% increase compared to the year before.Guidance should always be treated cautiously. But given what is in the 2021 pipeline, I believe that might be quite a conservative forecast.Elite Dangerous is getting a new expansion pack, Planet Coaster, which has sold over 2.5m copies on PC alone, is coming to PlayStation and Xbox, and Jurassic World Evolution with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is being released on Nintendo Switch.A gaming stock worth owning for the Christmas holidays?Beyond these releases, Frontier has already secured new IP licenses for both Formula 1 management games from 2022 onwards, as well as Warhammer Age of Sigmar in 2023.The studio’s ability to renew existing titles while developing new ones, all without having to rely on third-party publishing, is an exhilarating prospect for me. I’ve only been a shareholder for a couple of months, but I’m not going to be selling any time soon.

Speaking about the move to the Ospreys, Bearman commented: “I’m really looking forward to linking up with the Ospreys, this is an excellent opportunity for me to play top level rugby that I couldn’t turn down. I’ve enjoyed five good years at the Dragons, but I felt that the time was right for a new challenge and a change of environment. There were four or five really good offers on the table but it was the Ospreys who really impressed me. Bearman (centre) with Newport Gwent Dragons against Scarlets during the LV Anglo Welsh CupThe Ospreys are delighted to confirm the signing of back-row Joe Bearman from Newport Gwent Dragons on a two-year deal. Newquay born but Welsh qualified through residence, Bearman has put pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at the region until the end of the 2012/13 season.Capable of playing at blindside or number eight, Bearman joins the Ospreys after five years at the Dragons, where he has scored seven tries in 72 appearances prior to their game against Leinster yesterday. A huge favourite at Rodney Parade, he has a reputation as a powerful ball carrier and strong runner.Prior to signing for the Dragons, he spent a number of seasons at Cornish Pirates, captaining them for two, as they climbed the English league structure to become the first club from the county to reach National League One (now the Championship). NEWPORT, WALES – FEBRUARY 06: Joe Bearman of Newport Gwent Dragons and Rhys Lawrence of Scarlets battle for the ball during the LV Anglo Welsh Cup match between Newport Gwent Dragons and Scarlets at Rodney Parade on February 06, 2011 in Newport, Wales. (Photo by Tom Dulat/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “The management at the Ospreys have a clear plan for what they want to achieve, and I really like what I’ve seen of the young talent that has been playing over the last couple of months. I’ve got a lot of experience that I can bring to this young squad, I’ve played a lot of rugby and I hope I’ll be able to give that something extra to the group, including my ball carrying ability, something all teams need. I’ve had a look around at the excellent training facilities, spoken to the coaches, and with me being settled in Wales with my girlfriend this move is the obvious one for me. I can’t wait to get my teeth into a new challenge.”Ospreys Elite Performance Director, Andrew Hore, welcomed Joe to the region, saying: “Joe comes to us with an excellent reputation for being an honest, hard working individual, who thrives on the physical side of the game and is particularly renowned for his ability to make the hard yards with ball in hand. With his experience I’ve no doubt that he will prove to be a huge asset to the Ospreys environment, on and off the field. His signing is not just about what he brings to the team as a player, it is part of a bigger all round plan, to assist in the development of our younger players coming through. Joe leads by example, and displays all the characteristics that we want from our up and coming age-grade players.”

Gay Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, said Oct. 17 that they expect to appoint the members of a task force charged to re-imagine the workings of the Episcopal Church. ENS Photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – New Brunswick, New Jersey] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and the Rev. Gay Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, said Oct. 17 that they expect to announce on or about Dec. 1 the names of the members who will make up a special task force to re-imagine the workings of the Episcopal Church in the 21st century.General Convention called in July (via Resolution C095 for a group to research and present to the next meeting of convention in 2015 “a plan for reforming the church’s structures, governance, and administration.”The task force will gather ideas from all levels of the church about possible reforms to its structures, governance and administration. Its work will culminate in a special gathering of people from every diocese to hear what recommendations the task force plans to make to the 78th meeting of General Convention. Its final report is due by November 2014.Resolution C095 called for the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies to appoint the task force, which can include as many as 24 people, by Sept. 30. However, the statement noted that more than 450 people were nominated for those seats and Jennings said Oct. 15 during the first day of the Episcopal Church Executive Council’s four day meeting here that the two of them have been working their way through those nominations since Jefferts Schori returned in early October from sabbatical.“At this point, we are reviewing all the nominations, and we are discerning the composition of this important task force,” the two said in their Oct. 17 statement.They added that after the council meeting in October and their planned participation in the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meeting in New Zealand Oct. 27-Nov. 7, “we will devote our attention to this large and critical task.”“It is important to know that we are carefully reviewing each and every nomination and then discerning whom to appoint, given the many gifted people who have offered to serve,” they said.“There is an abundance of rich gifts being offered for this work, and we are delighted to discover how far we agree on the direction and potential names for this task force,” Jefferts Schori and Jennings said, adding that they wished to express “our deep thanks and appreciation” to those who were nominated or indicated a willingness to serve.Jefferts Schori and Jennings noted that the task force’s mandate and budget begins in 2013.Of the almost 400 resolutions submitted to General Convention more than 90 related to structural reform. Most of those resolutions were similar in nature and it was the work of the convention’s legislative committee on structure to consider the legislation and make its recommendations.The driving force behind those resolutions was a proposal last fall by Bishop Stacy Sauls, the Episcopal Church’s chief operating officer, calling for a special General Convention in 2014 to begin to make changes to the church’s constitution. Because amendments to the constitution can only take place at a regular convention, attention turned to how the spirit of change could begin to take shape at the 2012 convention and lead to options for its next meeting in 2015.During a packed public hearing on the structure resolutions at convention, testimony was short on the specifics about the nature of what some of the witnesses called an emergency that prevents it from doing the mission work of spreading the gospel in the world. And there were few specifics about what changes each witness wanted to see made in the church’s structure in response. There were repeated calls for putting “everything on the table.”Eventually, C095 were passed unanimously to great applause in both the House of Deputies and House of Bishops. A day earlier, deputies also had passed the resolution unanimously.

I would hope that when the task force members are chosen that ages are taken into account. Having representation from people who are in their late teens, 20’s and 30’s will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in newer areas including social media, technology and global awareness.

The role was launched a year ago and 1,750 pharmacists have already chosen to take part, even though it is entirely voluntary and they do the professional development in their own time. Innocent’s partnership with Age UKAndrews also cites Innocent’s partnership with Age UK as a remarkable partnership.This involves woolly hats appearing on top of smoothie bottles in supermarkets. For every bottle sold Innocent donate 25p to help keep older people warm in winter.”This partnership is remarkable because it jumps off the shelf and grabs our attention, inspiring us to purchase, smile and care” explains Andrews.He adds that it looks and feels so different that the media pays more attention and people talk about it ensuring the message spreads and reaches a much wider audience.In addition, it is the beneficiaries (older people) who are also the people responsible for knitting most of the hats.This year Innocent and Age UK are aiming to knit one million hats to go on top of smoothie bottles, which will raise a staggering £250,000. Why the research?Jonathan Andrews explained why he conducted the interviews. He said: “I undertook this research for two reasons. First, there are some stunning examples of charities and companies partnering together in a remarkable way and I wanted to celebrate the huge impact they are making together.”Secondly, I know that some charities and companies partner in a very average way, or not at all, and I believe that remarkable partnerships can provide them with inspiration, because they show them how to achieve extraordinary results.” Seven ways to create remarkable corporate partnershipsThe report identifies seven ways to create remarkable partnerships:1. Gain inspiration from other partnerships2. Understand your audience3. Focus on prospects where there is a good fit4. Take calculated risks5. Inspire your prospects6. Involve the whole organisation7. Create them togetherTweet this list Seven ways to sustain remarkable corporate partnershipsIt also shares seven ways to sustain remarkable partnerships, which are:1. Involve senior people2.

Manage your partnership in a professional wayTweet this listAndrews previously led corporate teams at Action for Children, Age Concern and Alzheimer’s Society. He set up Remarkable Partnerships earlier this year.He concludes from this research that “remarkable partnerships take more effort, insight, inspiration, bravery and collaboration, but the extraordinary results they deliver make them worthwhile”.A copy of How to create Remarkable Partnerships can be downloaded at no charge by registering at his website.

PhiladelphiaPeople marched from Philadelphia’s City Hall to a Wells Fargo Bank office May 7 to demand the bank stop funding Enbridge Corporation Line 3. The Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline would bring 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil per day from Alberta, Canada, to Superior, Wis.Philadelphia, May 7. (WW Photo: Joe Piette)A 35-foot-long black paper scroll was carried by participants symbolizing the oil pipeline. At the end of the demonstration, participants tore it up, “killing the corporate snake!”Since 2014, thousands of people have organized in their communities in Minnesota and Wisconsin and shown up at hearings to oppose Line 3. All pipelines spill, often at great cost to the surrounding environment and community.Enbridge was responsible for the July 2010 Kalamazoo River oil spill when the company’s Line 6B pipeline burst and flowed into Talmadge Creek, a tributary of the Kalamazoo River. A six-foot break in the pipeline produced one of the largest inland oil spills in U.S. history.Opponents on the Stop Line 3 website say: “Line 3 would contribute more to climate change than Minnesota’s entire economy. Minnesota’s own Department of Commerce found our local market does not need Line 3 oil. We need to decommission the old Line 3 and justly transition to a renewable, sustainable economy. Line 3 would violate the treaty rights of Anishinaabe peoples and nations in its path — wild rice is a centerpiece of Anishinaabe culture; it grows in numerous watersheds Line 3 seeks to cross.” (stopline3.org)According to treaties between the Anishinaabe and the U.S. in 1854 and 1855, which are federal law under the Constitution, the Anishinaabe people retain the rights to hunt, fish, gather medicines and harvest wild rice on marked territories. The pipeline crosses them without permission. The impact of construction — or worse, an oil spill — would permanently damage the Anishinaabe’s ability to exercise these rights, and an oil spill would permanently damage their historic wild rice beds.The proposed route for Line 3 crosses 227 lakes and rivers, including the Mississippi River and rivers that feed directly into Lake Superior, also putting those waterways at risk of a spill from the 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil that would flow through Line 3 every day.Prominent Anishinaabe and other Native activists have described the pipeline as “cultural genocide,” and Indigenous activists in northern Minnesota are leading direct actions on the ground to stop its construction.If built, Line 3 would release as much greenhouse gas into the atmosphere as 50 new coal-fired power plants — as much greenhouse gas as produced by the entire rest of the state of Minnesota. Tar sands oil is the filthiest type of heavy crude oil to extract and process. In Alberta, Canada, its extraction has contaminated the watershed — the drinking water impacting all species. This contamination has resulted in heavy loads of arsenic in moose meat — a dietary staple for the First Nations people. (ran.org/what-are-tar-sands/)Big banks, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Scotiabank, TD and Mizuho, have loaned more than $11 billion to Enbridge. Without that money, Enbridge would be unable to build the massive new tar sands pipeline. Global protests against the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline took place May 7 in eight countries on four continents, including 50 U.S. cities, against the 20 banks funding this pipeline. (tinyurl.com/yf2oj637)The fight to stop this pipeline is part of the fight to stop the use of the fossil fuels that have brought our Earth to the brink of climate disaster.

Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week Twitter Ballet Frontier of Texas wows in Nutcracker performance Linkedin printFaculty and staff members who advise students going abroad or considering leading a study abroad program can get answers to a broad range of topics Wednesday at a study abroad workshop.Topics for the workshop, sponsored by the Center for International Study, are expected to range from study abroad advising, policies and procedures when taking students abroad and faculty-led programs over the summer.At least 50 TCU professors participate in study abroad programs and 35 percent of TCU students study abroad, said Study Abroad Coordinator Jesica Severson. TCU runs semester-long programs in Florence, Italy; London, England; and Seville, Spain, as well as 15 to 20 summer faculty-led programs around the world.The Abroad Spectrum Workshop is scheduled from 10 a.m to 1 p.m. in the Brown-Lupton University Union Chambers. CIS faculty are expected to lead the three, 45-minute informational sessions.“It’s about trying to equip people with the information and tools they need to help us collectively achieve our mission of sending students all over the world,” Severson said.Severson said advising students about studying abroad is a collaborative effort among many members of TCU faculty.“When trying to decide if I even could study abroad with all of my major requirements, my advisers and Jesica at the study abroad office really helped me get all my classes sorted,” said Tori Cress, a senior who studied abroad in Sydney, Australia, in spring 2015.Cress said studying abroad was one of the “greatest opportunities that a college student can have,” and said professors should make sure their students consider traveling during their undergraduate years.For further questions about studying abroad, contact [email protected] Facebook Linkedin Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Abbey Blockhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/abbey-block/ Abbey Blockhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/abbey-block/ The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Facebook ReddIt Previous articleTCU downed by No. 19 Iowa State, 73-60Next articleTCU grad’s coffee shop is a place to work and meet Abbey Block RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Abbey Block Fort Worth girl searches for a bone marrow donor Abbey Blockhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/abbey-block/ Twitter TCU sends students to London, England, along with many other places throughout the world.
