Regions: Asia Lottery solutions provider AGTech has announced a total loss of HK$113.6m (£12.5m/€13.6m/US$14.6m) for 2019, despite posting an increase in revenue for the year.Revenue for the group during the 12 months to 31 December 2019 amounted to HK$175.1m, up 3.9% year-on-year.AGTech put this increase primarily down to growth within its lottery games and systems business, where revenue climbed by HK$9.3m from 2018. Revenue from lottery hardware sales was also up by HK$2.7m in 2019.However, AGTech said these increases were partially offset by a HK$6.3m decline in revenue from lottery distribution and ancillary services. The provider also noted that overall sales in the Chinese lottery sector were down 17.5%.In terms of operating expenses, costs were down from HK$114.7m in 2018 to HK$77.5m in the past year. AGTech said this was mainly due to a decrease in share-based payments for other eligible participants of around HK$12.2m.Legal and professional fees were also cut by HK$7.7m, while marketing expenses were lowered by HK$6.6m and operating expenses related to lottery distribution reduced by HK$5.2m.However, while operating loss for the year was reduced by 5.6% to HK$194.9m, AGTech saw posted a total loss of HK$113.6m for 2019, compared to a profit of HK$317.1m in the previous year.This, according to AGTech, was mainly attributable to several non-cash and non-operating items relating to the fair value changes of convertible bonds and the contingent consideration payables related to the 2014 purchase of lottery hardware supplier Score Value.AGTech’s chairman and chief executive, John Sun, was upbeat about the results, saying that the group is well positioned to pursue growth in a number of markets in 2020.“In 2019, our overall business continues to evolve and transform, both domestically and on the international front, to deliver a more sustainable and commercially viable business model,” Sun said.“In a year which saw sales in the Chinese lottery sector decrease by approximately 17.5% compared to last year, the group stands strong and continues to work responsibly according to regulatory requirements, and at the same time explore on innovative measures towards development of the industry.”Sun picked out a number of initiatives that AGTech said will help drive growth in 2020, such as the anticipated launch of its full suite of lottery solutions, including a software-as-a-service lottery delivery platform.Paytm First Games, formerly known as Gamepind, the group’s mobile gaming joint venture in India, will remain a key focus and driver for AGTech in terms of its international business, according to Sun.In addition, he highlighted the recent deal with parent company Alibaba, to supply equipment including point-of-sale terminals and facial recognition payment technology to the ecommerce giant.“Our games and entertainment division will continue to develop and roll out engagement games for commercialization, and will also look for expansion opportunities in other selected international markets as well,” Sun said.

The state of future architecture which presupposes the chain of housing removal. The plan of residence for a couple in their 50s and dental clinic for his son. Client told us that there is a possibility of change in housing form as a house of the pro-household and a doctor’s office of their son in the first stage. Then it is possible that the housing form change to duplex house with a pro-household and the child household, A house and doctor’s office of the child household, A house and rental house of the child household and the share house which assumes the whole of the house.Save this picture!Section AThinking of the architecture which accept a change in the style of living like this way, We started from the idea which future architecture should be planned on the assumption that there is a possibility of the chain of housing removal in modern times when working of people itself change rapidly.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki Yano”The basis” of the space reconstruct the workings of people each time. It is easily thinkable to design a plan with some facilities which can accept the change assumed in various ways. However, there is a possibility which the facilities themselves can be invalidated by own existence against an unexpected change instantly. Then we decided to stop “designing a plan which can accept a expected change”. We became aware of a possibility of a method which produce the basis and standard for those who live and utilize the space each time it happens. Since the basis exists in the space, people can reconstruct their own lives by using the basis as a standard.Save this picture!First Floor PlanArchitectural language called main pillar as “the basis” of the space. The architectural language with special meaning have been used for Japanese residence since ancient times. For example, Tokonoma referring to a built-in recessed space in a Japanese style reception room, which highlights invisible planning describing as the upper and lower seat by its resence beyond the ability to decorate things. The meaning of main pillar is interesting in the point. The main pillar emerges an invisible planning beyond the structural function generally as the metaphor representing the head of a family, sometimes representing the boundaries between an earth floor and a room floored with tatami mats, and also symbolizing the center of a house with having invisible plan emerge the direction around the pillar.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoIt exists as the basis and standard that resident constitutes the space. In our opinion, a main stream in contemporary architecture is an example which bleaches “the meaning” from such architectural language and retranslated to abstract language. However we would like to think of the possibility of the basis and standard composing the space with believing in the power of the “meaning”. Architecture which “The empty main pillars” become “the basis” in terms of the composition of the space. This architecture is set up by three main pillars. The main pillars are so called ” The empty main pillars” leading to the sky” with being full of “emptiness” without supporting load. It is “Atlas” supporting the sky. Based on “The empty main pillars”, classification and arrangement of residence as well as a medical office and rooms are planned as surroundingthem with following its power.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoJust as tracing invisible planning emerged by the main pillars. By the walls heading to the main pillars radically, the three main pillars become “The empty main pillars” which fill up with the emptiness with disentangling themselves from physical load and yet with being a wooden architecture.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoArchitecture reconstructing the space each time it happens. The meaning of the rooms in this architecture is an assumption to the last. Actually it intends to be chosen and reconstructed each time by the people who live in the space. Seasonally living room also can be changed by moving their bedroom.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoPossibly a waiting room of the dental clinic can be living room for a duplex house or a share house, also the dental clinic can be changed to a child’s private room or bedroom. If the border between current residence and the dental clinic change, proportional distribution can be changed continually. When the form of such living and working change, “The empty main pillars” is the basis and standard. It is the relationship with the basis. We planned this architecture which “The basis” keep supporting the sky as the standard of people reconstructing the space each time it happens.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse of Sieves / Francisco CadauSelected ProjectsTrading “Should” for “Could”: Opening up Debate on the Obama Library DesignArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2013 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs “COPY” 2013 Atlas house / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates Architects: Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates Area Area of this architecture project Area:  278 m² Area:  278 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: center_img Dental Clinic ArchDaily photographs:  Toshiyuki YanoPhotographs:  Toshiyuki Yano Japan Nishimura construction company Constructor: Save this picture!© Toshiyuki Yano+ 19 Share CopyDental Clinic, Houses•Osaka, Japan Atlas house / Tomohiro Hata Architect and AssociatesSave this projectSaveAtlas house / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates Year:  CopyAbout this officeTomohiro Hata Architect and AssociatesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsHealthcare ArchitectureHealthcaredental clinicResidential ArchitectureHousesOsakaHousesHealthcare ArchitectureJapanPublished on May 13, 2014Cite: “Atlas house / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates” 13 May 2014.

Atlanta’s Black community demands: Justice for Rayshard Brooks!

first_imgJune 13 — Amid existing protests in support of Black people murdered by police and white supremacists in Georgia and elsewhere, Atlanta protesters continue to brave the streets to fight for Rayshard Brooks — murdered by Atlanta police on Friday night, June 12.June 17 — Fired Atlanta cop Garrett Rolfe was charged today with 11 counts in the killing of Rayshard Brooks, including felony murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. APD cop Devin Brosnan, also at the scene, was charged with aggravated assault, among other offenses. After Rolfe shot Brooks in the back twice, neither cop provided “timely medical attention” to Brooks, as required by city policy. Instead Rolfe kicked Brooks as he lay on the ground and Brosnan stood on the dying man’s shoulder. According to prosecutors, Brosnan is willing to testify against Rolfe. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said this is the first time that has happened in 40 such cases of police violence his office has handled. Protests that have swept through Atlanta since the murder have continued in Peoplestown, the Black working-class neighborhood where Brooks was killed, and at Centennial Olympic Park and other city locations.Demonstrators near I-75/85 in Atlanta to protest killer cop, June 13.Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man, fell asleep in his car that evening in the drive-through lane at a Wendy’s fast-food  restaurant. As customers drove around his car to get service, someone inside Wendy’s called the Atlanta Police Department.APD cops Devin Bronsan and Garrett Rolfe arrived and started to arrest Brooks, one drawing a taser on him. After a short struggle, Brooks grabbed the taser, supposedly firing at Rolfe as he ran. A taser has a maximum range of about 10 feet. A typical police service gun like a Glock 22 has a maximum range of about 150 feet.Rolfe fired his gun three times and wounded Brooks as he ran away. Brooks later died in surgery. His death was ruled a homicide on June 14 by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office. The autopsy revealed that Rolfe shot Brooks twice in the back.Rolfe has been fired from the APD and Bronsan was put on administrative duty.In what many local organizers call a win after years of demands, APD Chief Erika Shields was forced to resign, despite her claim that this was her own decision.Rayshard BrooksBrooks was father to three children and stepfather to one teenager. According to family lawyers, Brooks was going to take his daughter skating that night for her eighth birthday, which was the next day.Explosion of anger at injustice Protests had already been organized in and around Atlanta for June 13 and 14 as a response to white supremacist murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and many more Black people throughout the U.S. For about three weeks, Atlanta and its suburbs have seen near-daily protests responding to these murders.On Saturday evening, June 13, protesters came out in the hundreds near University and Pryor Avenues, where the Wendy’s was located. Despite a show of force by police in riot gear, who formed a line to block the nearby interstate highway, protesters were able to charge the police line and run uphill to take I-75/85 around 9 p.m.Protesters interlocked arms and were able to block both sides of traffic — 12 lanes — for hours until police arrived in SWAT gear and arrested 36 people. Almost immediately after hearing that the APD had lynched another Black man, the community and protesters also surrounded the Wendy’s where Brooks was murdered. At the same time demonstrators were taking over the superhighway, other protesters were setting fire to Wendy’s, where the call was made that ended Brooks’ life. By 10 p.m. it was engulfed in flames.Later that night, some protesters made it to Zone 3 Precinct, the police station down the road from Wendy’s. Protesters gathered outside the precinct demanding justice for Brooks until, past midnight, police threw tear gas and shot rubber bullets at the unarmed demonstrators.On Sunday, June 14, the community came out again for Brooks. Hundreds of protesters returned to Wendy’s and then began marching to the Zone 3 Precinct. Around 10 p.m. it was reported that over 100 cars had been parked in nearby roads, blocking police reinforcements from getting to the station. Late-night marches to downtown Atlanta were also taking place, as the righteously outraged set fires and the poor and oppressed — who have been robbed of the wealth their work has created — proceeded to redistribute goods from The Beacon, a gentrified shopping district.The struggle will continueThe murder of Brooks by the APD generated feelings of sorrow and anger, unfortunately all too familiar to Atlanta organizers, the Black community and those who care and fight for Black lives in the city.Anthony Hill, Kathryn Johnston, Jamarion Robinson, Oscar Cain, Alexia Christian and Nicholas Thomas — these are only a few of the Black people whom the APD has murdered throughout the years. In a less-reported murder of a Black man, cops killed Lamin Sisay, a man from Gambia, right outside of Atlanta on May 29, only four days after the lynching of George Floyd.Organizers continue the fight to get justice for these people.Because of these murders and the brutality that define the APD, Atlanta activists have for years called for APD Chief Shields to resign. Shields is now gone, but the long-standing community demands of closing the city jail and funding the surrounding community — which faces great poverty as gentrifiers continue to flood Atlanta — have yet to be met.More actions are planned in Atlanta to protest the murder of Brooks by the APD, with some occurring even as this article is being written. Organizers have made it clear they will not stop until there is justice for Brooks and all people murdered by the APD.Their demands will eventually have to be met — because the Atlanta Black community will continue to struggle, as it has for hundreds of years.Do not forget Rayshard Brooks! Fight for him and all Black lives! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The journalists have lodged an appeal and have not yet been jailed. The case will be heard further on 25 OctoberRashed told Reporters Without Borders he was surprised by the excessive sentence but said it was not the only case in the Gulf states.

Journalist killed by culture of intolerance and impunity

Aliyev died in a Baku hospital yesterday from the injuries he received when he was lured into an ambush and beaten the day before.He is the fourth journalist to be murdered in the past ten years. The investigations into the deaths of Elmar Huseynov and Alim Kazimli in 2005 and Rafiq Tagi in 2011 have yet to yield any credible results.“Aliyev’s murder is the product of a culture of intolerance and impunity that the most senior officials have been fomenting for years,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“When government officials publicly identify outspoken journalists as enemies and as traitors, when physical attacks on journalists consistently go unpunished, we cannot be surprised that tragedies like this occur.”Deadly ambushAfter being badly beaten in Baku on the afternoon 8 August, Aliyev was hospitalized with broken ribs and loss of hearing in the left ear. Before dying of internal bleeding the next day, he said he had been the target of an ambush organized by a person identifying himself as Azerbaijani football star Javid Huseynov’s cousin.Aliyev had criticized Huseynov on Facebook on 6 August for responding with an insulting gesture to a Cypriot journalist who asked him why he had displayed a Turkish flag on the pitch.Two days later, a man who identified himself as Huseynov’s cousin telephoned Aliyev and began to insult and threaten him. But, when he called Aliyev a second time, he was conciliatory and invited him to come and have a tea with him. Huseynov himself had meanwhile called Aliyev and had a normal conversation with him.When Aliyev arrived at the rendez-vous with the self-described cousin, five or six individuals immediately began beating him. They also stole his wallet and mobile phone.Gabala, the club Huseynov plays for, is run by Taleh Heydarov, the son of Azerbaijan’s minister for emergency situations. It announced yesterday that it was suspending Huseynov until these events were clarified.After calling on the media to stick to the official version and not “politicize” the case, the authorities announced that they were investigating a case of “deliberate and aggravated assault resulting in death” (article 126.3 of the criminal code). The Azerbaijani media have reported that at least three suspect’s have been arrested include a cousin of Huseynov.Recurring threatsA video and photo reporter covering political and social issues for various Azerbaijani news websites, Aliyev was a member of the executive bureau of the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety (IRFS), a media defence NGO that was a Reporters Without Borders partner. It was forcibly closed in August 2014.When the head of the IRFS, Emin Huseynov, had to go into hiding to avoid arrest, it was Aliyev who was elected to replace him in October. Aliyev had been the target of several threats and attacks in recent years. According to Meydan TV, an independent TV station, he asked his Facebook contacts on 25 July: “Dear Friends, Do you know where I should submit a complaint if I receive threats and if I am intimidated on social networks?”Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to consider all possibilities and not to limit themselves to prosecuting the murder’s perpetrators. Ali Hasanov, the head of the president’s office, who often threatens independent media openly, said today that the president regarded media freedom as “one of the state’s priorities.”“This new democratic proclamation would be good for a laugh if the subject were not so grave. If the president wants to be taken seriously, he should end the unprecedented crackdown on the media and civil society that has been going on for more than a year.”In Azerbaijan, ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, almost all independent media outlets have been reduced to silence and media freedom NGOs have been closed.Eight journalists and four bloggers are currently detained because of what they were reporting. They include well-known investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova, whose trial continued today. Dozens of independent journalists and critical bloggers have been forced to flee abroad in recent months.(Photo: Camil Memmedov / Facebook) RSF_en to go further News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan News News Receive email alerts August 10, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist killed by culture of intolerance and impunitylast_img read more

Blair High School Students Create “No More” Public Service Announcements

first_img Blair High School’s Career Tech Education (CTE) student Evan Harper models for a PSA project about Sexual Assault Awareness for April 2017. Photo by student: Amara Young. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) and students in Blair High School’s Career Technical Education (CTE) Photography, Film and Video classes are creating public service announcements (PSA) using photos and videos to educate their community of followers via social media about the epidemic of sexual assault and domestic violence.Steve Solis, the CTE digital arts teacher facilitating the project at Blair High School, stated, “One of my goals for this project is to engage students to participate in a cause outside of themselves while educating them about the seriousness of sexual assaults among their peers.”The students were instructed to emulate the campaign, which helps raise public awareness and engage bystanders in ending domestic violence and sexual assault. Mr. Solis’ photography students used the campaign as a template to create their own PSAs. Students were assigned to create a series of three photos to share via their Instagram or SnapChat Stories.“As an activist, sending a message of empathy and raising societal consciousness is extremely important to me,” said Yale University-bound senior Deon Brown. “As an artist, I find ways to share this message in the best way possible. This project has given me the outlet to do so.”Another student, senior Amara Young, who has not yet decided which college to attend, stated, “Through this project, I have learned about the stigma surrounding sexual assault and domestic violence victims. The No More Campaign has made it clear that we as a society should make the shift from blaming the victims to blaming the perpetrators.”In his classes, Mr. Solis showed news clips and testimonies from sexual assault victims along with segments of “The Hunting Ground,”, a groundbreaking documentary about the epidemic of sexual assaults on American college campuses.“Some of our seniors are headed to universities where sexual assault crimes may have been suppressed. I want to make sure my seniors, as prospective college students, do their homework about any safety concerns they may have about assaults on college campuses,” said Mr. Solis.Mr. Solis’ digital arts students have been working on their public service announcements for the past two weeks. Their photos and short video spots are scheduled to be completed by Friday, April 14, 2017. Videos will be posted at Viking Vision Blair High School.Blair High School, 1135 S.

Call to highlight our 1916 heroes

first_imgLinkedin Email Advertisement IN TIME for the centenary of the Easter Rising of 1916, steps should now be taken to locate and highlight the graves of those Limerick men and women who died in the rebellion and are buried in Mount St Lawrence Cemetery.Cllr Tom Shortt (Labour) has advised the Limerick City Council’ Environmental Department that in line with their plans to refurbish the cemetery and install information panels,Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up with guidelines to graves, etc, work should now get underway to identify and mark the graves, not only of those who were killed in the Rising, but also those who fell in the Great War of 1914 – ‘18, the centenary of which is also approaching.Referring to the media interest this week in a premises on Dublin’s Moore Street, to the rear of the General Post Office in O’Connell Street), in which terms of the Surrender were negotiated, Cllr Short said: “We are the custodians of the city and its heritage and with these two hugely significant historic events approaching, preparations will be underway in the capital but also throughout the country to commemorate the events in a very special way.“St Lawrence’s Cemetery is over 150 years old and has many noted people from all walks of life buried there, but how many people visiting the cemetery, would, I wonder, know where to find the grave of that hugely popular Limerick politician, Jim Kemmy or the Republican Plot or the Manchester Martyrs plot, the graves of the murdered Limerick mayors, Clancy and O’Callaghan or the Good Shepherd Plot, where so many of the Magdalen women were buried, and where will people in 2016 be able to find the graves of Limerick people who lost their lives in the bid for freedom, in 1916..“We should start our investigative work now and produce a user-friendly map that clearly indicates the locations of these and other graves – we should open up the cemetery to the public and make it more user friendly and a tourist attraction. There will be massive interest in both 1916 and the 1914-’18 War – it is growing already”.The cemetery church (now unused) could be converted into a records centre, with a caretaker, Cllr Kathleen Leddin recommended.
