MGM China investor: operator should seek investment from Chinese travel business is China’s largest travel agent and also owns the Skyscanner flight booking site. Investment firm Snow Lake Capital, which manages funds owning 7.5% of MGM China shares, has advised the operator to introduce a Chinese travel business as a strategic shareholder to facilitate growth in Asia. The consequences of failing to do so would be “disastrous” for MGM China and MGM Resorts as a whole, it warned. The investment business said MGM China is currently undervalued by 20% to 30% compared to other Macau operators largely due to concerns about the future of its gaming concession. Strategy Snow Lake added that diversification is likely to be a key selling point in the new concession process, with Ho having noted that the special administrative region needs to rely less on gambling for revenue in the wake of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. Similarly, it argued that such an investment from a Chinese business would increase integration of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, another target of the Macau and Chinese governments. Currently, MGM holds a sub-concession to operate in Macau, under  Sociedade de Jogos de Macao’s (SJM) own concession. Macau’s three initial gaming concessions – issued in 2002 to SJM, Wynn Resorts and Galaxy Entertainment – are set to expire in June 2022. The strategic shareholder, Snow Lake argued, would also benefit as its stake in MGM could help it expand internationally to the US and Japan. In addition, the businesses would benefit from exposure to the growing Macau market, which Snow Lake argued may overtake Hong Kong as the leading destination for Chinese tourists, thanks in part to Macau’s “decisive” handling of the pandemic. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter MGM China investor: operator should seek investment from Chinese travel business Snow Lake listed four Chinese businesses which stood out as obvious suitable candidates for such an investment: service shopping platform Meituan, travel agency, hotel group Huazhu and property developer Sunac China Holdings. “With a successful deal, MGM Resorts International can position itself well in a secular growth market.” In addition, Snow Lake argued the deal would provide MGM with the capital necessary to pursue mergers targeting the sports betting and online gaming industries. Earlier this week, European online giant Entain – which co-owns the BetMGM joint venture alongside MGM – announced that MGM had proposed an offer to acquire the business for approximately $11.00bn (£8.11bn/€8.97bn), but said the deal “substantially undervalues” Entain. Meituan – the largest of the four businesses by market capitalisation – offers a platform for buying consumer services including hotel booking, bike-sharing, entertainment and car-hailing.center_img “The proceeds from reducing MGM China stake will provide MGM Resorts International with much-needed cash to continue aggressively pursue the M&A, and reduce the potential dilution MGM Resorts International shareholders will face,” Snow Lake said.  Email Address 6th January 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle MGM confirmed the proposal but said there was “no certainty” it would make a binding offer. Tags: MGM Resorts International Snow Lake said the investment would be a “win-win” for MGM and the potential investor. It would help ensure MGM receives a concession to continue operating in Macau when the licenses are re-tendered in 2022, as well as providing capital to pursue an integrated resort in Japan, it explained. Topics: Casino & games Strategy Land-based casino M&A Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter As a result, it argued a deal that would help secure a concession would also drastically boost its share price. MGM Resorts International has also received recent investment from InterActive Corporation (IAC), which acquired a 12% stake in August 2020. Snow Lake noted that, as Macau’s Chief Executive Ho Iat Seng has said the new regime will not feature sub-concessions, MGM China “needs to consider all options to maximise its chance of obtaining a new concession in 2022”.

‘The unvarnished truth’: Episcopal Peace Fellowship marks 80th anniversary with…

first_img‘The unvarnished truth’: Episcopal Peace Fellowship marks 80th anniversary with racial reconciliation event Racial Justice & Reconciliation Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rhode Island Bishop Nicholas Knisely speaks at the Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s 80th anniversary commemoration at the Center for Reconciliation in Providence, Rhode Island, on Nov. 10, 2019. Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Providence, Rhode Island] Founded in 1939 on Armistice Day – the commemoration of the end of World War I, which now coincides with Veterans Day in the United States – the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, or EPF, was established to promote pacifism and protect conscientious objectors as the world plunged into yet another devastating global conflict.And some of its leaders today – including the Rev. Bob Davidson, chair of EPF’s national executive council, and the Rev. Will Mebane, vice chair – became involved when EPF supported them as conscientious objectors during the Vietnam War.“EPF is actually the reason I’m an Episcopalian,” Mebane told Episcopal News Service. Mebane had thought he only had two choices as a conscientious objector: “Go to Canada, or go to prison.” But a friend referred him to an Episcopal priest who connected him with EPF’s resources and invited him to come back to church on Sunday. The rest is history.However, peace means more than just the absence of war, and EPF’s mission has expanded from its earlier focus to a wider variety of social justice issues, from combating gun violence and sex trafficking to promoting racial reconciliation and criminal justice reform.“Part of our mission statement is to ‘dismantle’ violence,” Davidson told ENS. “That’s a more active term than ‘be aware of’ or ‘oppose.’ … What we’ve come to understand is the intersectionality of poverty and racism and violence. That … has led us more deeply into racial reconciliation and the awareness of white supremacy, white privilege, as the root cause of so much collective and interpersonal violence.”The Cathedral of St. John in Providence, Rhode Island, now houses the Center for Reconciliation. Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News ServiceThat’s why the organization chose to celebrate its 80th anniversary with a two-day series of events focused on racial reconciliation. On Nov. 10, EPF hosted a “Commemoration of Witness” evensong service at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Bristol, Rhode Island – at which Bishop Nicholas Knisely of Rhode Island officiated and the Rt. Rev. Shannon MacVean-Brown, the newly consecrated bishop of Vermont, preached. It was followed by a fundraiser.Members of the EPF National Executive Council at the 80th anniversary evensong at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Bristol, Rhode Island. Front row: The Rev. Cody Maynus, the Rev. Ann Coburn, Bob Lotz, the Rev. Will MebaneBack row: Rob Burgess, the Rev. Bob Davidson, Melanie Ath, Ellen Lindeen. Photo: Steven AthaThe next day, the events continued at the Center for Reconciliation at the Cathedral of St. John in Providence. The cathedral – which remains the seat of the Diocese of Rhode Island – suspended services in 2012 due to financial difficulties, but it has housed the Center for Reconciliation since 2013. Established as a diocesan initiative, the nonprofit center educates the public about the history and legacy of slavery and racism.With the center mostly operating in the basement of the cathedral, repair work in other areas of the building is ongoing, with the hope of reopening it completely in the future.“The cathedral had closed just about a month before I was elected bishop, and I was not consulted, but it was presented to me as a closed building, and I set as a goal for myself reopening the building,” Knisely said.The Center for Reconciliation is an especially useful resource in Rhode Island because, as with much of the Northeast, public awareness of the local impact of slavery is not as acute as in the South, Knisely said – a theme that was repeated throughout the day on Nov. 11.“The Diocese of Rhode Island in its early days profited directly from the slave industry, and worse than that, a number of our buildings were built by enslaved people,” Knisely said. “As a child … I thought I was in the North and therefore I was exempt from having to feel guilty about this, and I discovered that’s not the case. And I have learned that this is not something that happened a long time ago. This is something that is ongoing, built into the historic inequities in American culture.”When asked why racial reconciliation work – especially dealing with events that happened centuries ago – is important for Christians now, Knisely explained that progress cannot happen if not everyone understands the full historical context.“How can I be a person of the Gospel truth if part of my life is blocked from my own understanding?” Knisely asked. “It is impossible for us to have a conversation across racial divides if half of that group knows a history we don’t know. … [Racism] is the original sin of the United States. And gun violence, drug addiction, gender violence – all of that vectors back to the enslavement industry. Capitalism, the way we abuse workers on the assembly line, vectors back to the plantation. Until we go to confession, we have no way of being reconciled.”Traci Picard, the Center for Reconciliation’s program and research associate, gives a presentation on the history of slavery in Rhode Island. Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News ServiceThe day began with a presentation from Traci Picard, the center’s program and research associate, and volunteer tour guide Mark Burnham on the history of slavery in Rhode Island.“This is what we call ‘difficult history,’” Picard said.She spoke of how the state, the church and businesses combined to create a “web of complicity,” even in states like Rhode Island, which lacked the large plantations found in the South but where the economy was heavily based on trade, including the slave trade. Until 1807, Rhode Island was the top slave-trading state in the United States, Picard said, and Rhode Island had some of the strictest laws on runaway slaves.“We didn’t have a primary crop, like tobacco or cotton,” Picard explained. “The African people were the commodity. That was our primary product.”Byron Rushing, vice president of The Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies, delivers the keynote speech. Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News ServiceIn the afternoon, Byron Rushing – the vice president of The Episcopal Church’s House of Deputies and founder of the Episcopal Urban Caucus who also served as a Massachusetts state representative from 1983 until this past January – delivered a keynote speech in which he delved into some of the semantic problems encountered when talking about slavery, racial reconciliation and colonialism.“Episcopalians, like many Christians, love words that start with the syllable ‘re-,’” Rushing said. “[Those] words have a huge implication: the implication of return. Returning to something that existed. Returning to a different relationship between humans.“In the ‘re-,’ what was the ‘conciliation’? ‘Re-conciliation’ assumes there was a time when it was not a problem.”Rushing also took issue with the use of the word “discover” to describe European colonization of Native land, explaining the problem in a modern parable.“I’m going to go out into the parking lot and I’m going to find your car. I’m going to figure out a way to get into your car. I’m going to get into your car. I’m going to drive your car to Boston! I have ‘discovered’ your car,” Rushing said.The theft of Native land gave rise to the theft of the labor needed to exploit it, Rushing said.“You have stolen the land, so you steal the people.”Rushing then moderated a panel discussion with representatives from all over Province I, who spoke about the various racial reconciliation projects they had undertaken.When the Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Massachusetts, decided to hold the 10-part Sacred Ground dialogue series on race and racism developed by The Episcopal Church, co-facilitators Holly Carter and Caitlin Slodden expected about 20 people to sign up to participate in the whole series, while in fact, 88 parishioners did – nearly a third of the congregation in a town whose population is almost completely white.Holly Carter speaks during the discussion panel. Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News ServiceCarter and Slodden credited the success to robust support from the clergy and vestry and to the fact that Carter, who is black, and Slodden, who is white, are equal partners in running the series, bringing different backgrounds and experiences.The Rev. Katie Ernst, interim executive director of the Mission Institute, talked about how she successfully lobbied the Commission on Ministry in the Diocese of Massachusetts to make changes to the diocese’s vocational discernment process after a black woman left the process because of issues related to race. Through a series of interviews with multiple seminarians and recently ordained clergy of color, the Mission Institute was able to identify patterns of white supremacy within the process, she said, and the commission has made promising changes.Lee Cheek of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, spoke of her efforts to restore the “erased” history of W.E.B. Du Bois, the black writer and activist who was born in her town but not appropriately recognized and celebrated there. The Rev. Gail Avery described a similar struggle to recognize and honor the contributions of black citizens through the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire.It’s crucial, Cheek said, for white people to personally engage with people of color and witness “the unvarnished truth” of the effects that racism has had on their lives.The Rev. Rowena Kemp and Suzy Burke, the conveners of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut’s Racial Healing, Justice, and Reconciliation Ministry Network, spoke of the success they’d had in fostering difficult conversations through pilgrimages, forums, workshops and even theatrical performances, in addition to curating a library of helpful media and resources. They stressed the importance of reaching beyond the intellectual level to a deeper emotional level, a point also raised by Cheek.“We need to grab people by the heart,” Cheek said.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

“American Made” is a delightfully fun but average film

Seal is recruited by the CIA and is used to become part of one the biggest CIA operations in South America.Cruise is no stranger to starring in an action movie. His list of movies include: “The Mummy,” “Mission Impossible,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Jack Reacher” and many more. This time around Cruise was not just used in crazy stunts and action scenes, but had to portray the full emotional scope of a man working for the CIA and trying to support his family. He has to show the happiness of making millions and the low of getting in major trouble when caught.While his acting along with Domhnall Gleeson is well done, the rest of this cast was very forgettable. Sarah Wright who played the wife of Seal in the film didn’t add much other than something for him to “fight for” if things went bad.The first half of the movie to many will feel like a drag as it does a lot of setting up for the second half and has little to no action during this time. Once the second half starts up, it heats up with action, twists and plenty happening all at once.Verdict:Overall, the acting is good by Cruise but not his best movie by far. The rest of the cast is forgettable and boring. Although the second half is filled with a lot of fun the first half can get very boring and takes a while to set things up. But this movie makes for a fun evening if there is nothing better to go see at the movies and you can’t get enough of  Tom Cruise.6.5/10 Review: ‘Black Panther’ delivered even with high expectations ReddIt Facebook ReddIt Photo by Universal Pictures William Konig read more
