LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – As gas and food prices rise, more Americans are turning to food banks, which means nonprofits are stepping in to help, but their budgets suffer.

For many families, budgets are tight and prices are more than 7% higher than a year ago. Some families get by because they cut back on their food.

Three Square food bank executives said their sites are seeing an increase in food needs.

“There is just a fine line between those who are food insecure and those who are not. Certainly, economic success like this exposes that,” said Larry Scott of the Three Square Food Bank.

He added that inflation is also impacting nonprofits. It used to cost $1,200 to have food delivered and now it costs up to $5,000.

While purchased food accounts for only 10% of their diet, the group is seeing rising prices and also having difficulty finding certain food items, just like the average consumer.

United Way is also seeing a growing need for food. There are many pantries around the valley that distribute food. This link will help you find one near you.

“In our efforts to be a supporter and partner here in the Southern Nevada community, we have funded nearly three times as many nonprofits in this budget year as we have in years. previous ones,” said Julian High, president and CEO of United Way of Southern Nevada.

We know that several large companies have reduced their physical presence at CES 2022, and we understand their concerns. They want to protect their employees from COVID-19 and the risk of having to quarantine themselves in Las Vegas.

At Consumer Technology Association, we passionately believe that innovation and technology will create a better world and solve some of the biggest challenges in health, energy, mobility, the environment and more. CES is the world’s biggest innovation event, and we have thousands of people from all over the world to see and show off products that will make life better.

Innovation can come from anywhere and from anyone, and we must respect and encourage that. This belief informs all of our public policy positions, and big tech companies – almost all of which are our members – respect CTA to always seek out small companies. Indeed, at CES and even as CTA members, over 80 percent of our members are small businesses. These companies and founders are the ones I think of when I say it’s not time to unplug CES 2022.

CES will and must continue. There will be a lot more small businesses than large ones. There may be large gaps in the show floor. Admittedly, it will be different from previous years. It can be messy. But innovation is messy. It’s risky and uncomfortable. I see CES as representing the best of our unique American history – a place where those who are different and have big ideas can come together. Where success is not based on class or religion or anything other than the strength of an idea.

As we look to CES 2022, we are faced with a difficult choice. If we cancel the show, we will hurt the thousands of small businesses, entrepreneurs and innovators who have invested in building their exhibits and are counting on CES for their business, their inspiration and their future. If we don’t cancel, we’ll be up against the drums of the press and other critics who only tell the story through their lens of drama and big business.

We are aware that CES could be an event where the omicron variant can spread. We are leading the way by demanding masks and vaccines, recommending tests and offering free tests. We respect the fact that some do not want to take the risk of going to Las Vegas, even in the vaccinated CES bubble. But with strong security measures and fewer people, there is plenty of room for participants to socially distance themselves.

We have consulted with experts, both medical and analytical, and have been told that with our health and safety protocols, infections are expected to be minimal. We also work with leading health experts in Nevada.

We live in uncertain times. We’ve spent about 20 months surviving – thanks to vaccines, the medical community, and technology – in a virtual world. But as any CEO knows, we are humans. We need each other and we especially need each other for innovation to flourish.

For those who can’t make it to Las Vegas, we’ll be showing lots of key presentations and giving every exhibitor, including those who recently canceled, the free opportunity to expand their CES presence globally.

It is time we returned to making the world a better place rather than living in fear. CES 2022 will kick off 2022 in a haphazard fashion, but it will be full of innovations and full of entrepreneurs and businesses. We will all take risks. But without risk there is no innovation.

Gary Shapiro is President and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association.

H

having a property on the Strip is not a priority for Penn National Gaming’s growth strategy, revealed Jay Snowden, president, CEO and director of Penn. Thursday.

“Generally speaking, I don’t think it’s imperative that we have an asset on the Las Vegas Strip given the approach we have around (developing an omnichannel operation),” Snowden told the investors, according to Las Vegas Review. “I think having representation in all states of the United States is absolutely a strategic imperative for us and we have largely achieved that goal.”

But while the Strip is not a priority for Penn, CEO admitted that if the company found the right asset in the right location and at the right price, they would be interested in seizing the opportunity. The discussion escalated after an analyst asked about MGM’s announcement of its intention to sell The Mirage.

“It would be great to have an asset that we could create some retention value for when (customers are) in Vegas,” Snowden added. “But we don’t think it’s a strategic imperative that drives us to hunt an asset or overpay.” The CEO said the gaming operator would have a “disciplined” approach to assessing Vegas’ opportunities.

Penn already operates a property on the Strip: the Tropicana, owned by real estate investment trust partner Gaming & Leisure Properties. Earlier this year, in April, Bally’s Corp. agreed to buy it from Gaming & Leisure for $ 308 million. Penn also operates the M Resort in Henderson.

“There are a lot of variables that you need to look at asset by asset as they become available – if they become available,” Snowden explained, reports. Journal. “But you have to assume we’re not going to chase anything that we don’t think we can get good feedback on.”

The senior executive of the company discussed Penn’s strategy on a third quarter earnings conference call with investors. Throughout the period, the company posted revenues of $ 1.5 billion, up 33% from 2020. Nevertheless, the net profit saw a notable decrease: 86.1 million dollars, against 141.2 million dollars the previous year, a decrease of 39%.

Also during the quarter, Adjusted EBITDA increased by $ 20.7 million compared to last year to reach $ 365.3 million. Analysts say it’s been a mixed period for Penn: While more revenue was generated than in 2020, the gaming business fell short of cash flow expectations. amid one-time expenses. These include expenses resulting from Hurricane Ida, regional outbreaks of the COVID-19 delta variant and $ 7.5 million in start-up costs for sports betting partner Barstool Sports.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports founder.

Penn shares, traded on the Nasdaq stock exchange, fell double-digit percentages on Thursday, falling 21%. It happened in the middle sexual misconduct allegations against Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, published by Initiated. Following the publication of the report, the stock continued to fall, closing the day at $ 57.40. This is the lowest for over a year.

Snowden also discussed funding lobbying efforts in California that seek to promote a sports betting initiative. Penn is one of seven companies supporting the initiative, with $ 12.5 million. The CEO said the initiative was designed to seek the best interests of the state and the casinos.

“We’re going to be pretty advanced in the signature collection mode in the coming weeks and months and there has been a bit of opposition, so we’re trying to figure that out,” he explained. “We actually want to do this in a way that is completely complementary to the voting initiative that the tribes already had before announcing the voting initiative and the language of the voting initiative.”
