Playtech courts former Sportech boss

first_img Email Address Casino & games Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Playtech courts former Sportech boss Ian Penrose, the former chief executive of Sportech, is reportedly being lined up to take over as chairman of Playtech.Penrose is believed to be close to taking on a non-executive director role at the company, which issued a profit warning last month.According to The Times newspaper, Penrose is viewed internally as a long-term replacement for chairman Alan Jackson. In May, 35.2% of investors voted against re-electing Jackson, who has been in the role since 2013.When contacted by to clarify the report, Playtech refused to comment.In addition to his time with Sportech, Penrose is well known in the industry for leading UK racecourse operator Arena Leisure. He is currently listed as a non-executive chairman at England’s National Football Museum in Manchester.The Times said that his appointment could be confirmed when Playtech announces its financial results for the first half of the year on Thursday. Early indications suggest full-year core earnings will be 21% lower than expected, the report added.Playtech will hope to make more of an impact in the US sports betting market, which is continuing to grow in the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA earlier this year.When it issued its profit warning at the start of July, a price war in Asia was cited as a primary reason for its struggles.

The property is located right on the edge of the forest. The main challenge was to integrate the building into the existing natural surroundings creating an ideal connection to the woods. Therefore this project was inspired by nature. Despite its location close to the city, it is particularly influenced by the nearby forest. The tranquillity, the green of the trees, and the chirping of the birds are part of everyday life here.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Bruno HelblingFrom the desire to convey a feeling of living in contact with the natural environment, the idea of the project is to create apartments and terraces that seem to float above the tree canopy. The apartments are all south-facing, each of them with its own surrounding terrace, which provides plenty of privacy. The real invention is the façade, which is a unique innovation in terms of technology and design.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingSave this picture!© Bruno HelblingThe exterior skin is made of thin metal slats that wrap around the whole building giving a textile look. It is in a natural, light bronze tone, which blends in perfectly with the green surroundings. The metal slats have no reflection effect, but they playfully take up the green tones of the surroundings.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingSave this picture!© Bruno HelblingRather than denying the forest, we established a dialogue between the building and the context. The garden floor is made of beige, sandblasted, exposed concrete. Because of the property location, the garden became a central element of the project. The north area, which is next to the street, is planted with suitable plants and trees that act as a filter to the residential complex. Thanks to the choice of native plants, a gentle transition between the residential garden and the forest is created on the south side.Save this picture!© Bruno HelblingProject gallerySee allShow lessABOUT ARCHITECTURE: an open lecture with Roger RieweLectureHearing Stories: Narrative Audio in IsolationLecture Share Year:  Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Atlas Schindler, NEUCO, V-Zug, Adobe, BWB-group, McNeel Save this picture!© Bruno Helbling+ 27Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyHouses•Zollikon, Switzerland Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeCurzio Ardinghi ArchitectureOfficeFollowAndres CarosioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesZollikonOn FacebookSwitzerlandPublished on March 01, 2021Cite: “Birkenweg House / Curzio Ardinghi Architecture + Andres Carosio” 01 Mar 2021.

Just under one third said it wouldn’t affect their trust towards a charity, 7% said they didn’t know while 2% said it would have an adverse effect on their trust.The survey also asked whether a Fundraising Preference Service where people could opt out of all fundraising communications was a good idea. Over two thirds (67%) of respondents either strongly agreed, or agreed, with 23% saying they neither agreed, nor disagreed. Less than 10% either disagreed, or strongly disagreed with the idea of the scheme.When asked how likely they would be to sign up to the service, 54% either said they would be very likely, or likely to sign up for it. Just under a third (30%) said they were neither likely, nor unlikely and 16% would be either unlikely or very unlikely to sign up.Jonathan Pitts, from Harris Interactive said:“The survey results show that the majority of the public agree charities should adopt opt-in only communications for fundraising. For charities that have already taken this step, or are working towards it, there’s encouraging signs that this will build trust and confidence. A key challenge for charities looking to adopt this policy will be getting new and current donors to opt-in if they haven’t already.” Tagged with: opt-in Research / statistics  53 total views,  1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Stop U.S. sanctions!

first_imgThe gang that announces Washington’s policies has laid out a program of punishment, aimed at populations of countries on three continents. Any honest international court would charge them with crimes against humanity.Marchers in New York join millions who reject U.S. sanctions on Venezuela.WW photo: Brenda RyanSecretary of State Mike Pompeo, National Security Adviser John Bolton and President Donald Trump declared at different times in March and April that there will be new, harsher sanctions on Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua.  Sanctions against Zimbabwe will be extended another year and Iran will not be allowed to export oil.Existing sanctions directed at Russia bring in a fourth continent, Europe. In addition, companies in European Union countries that have begun to do normal business with, for example, Cuba or Iran, face U.S. economic punishment.To impose its decadent and now decaying domination on the rest of the world, U.S. imperialism uses its still pre-eminent destructive military power — with 800 bases on all continents — along with its propaganda machine and its waning but still impressive economic power. Remember the sanctions against Iraq that began in 1990, continued under Republican and Democratic administrations, and ended only with the U.S. invasion in 2003. In that period sanctions were responsible for the deaths of 1.5 million Iraqis, including 500,000 young children. The war machine kills quickly. Sanctions, even if slower, are as deadly as invasions.In this hemisphere, imperialism’s economic weapons target Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua with the goal of overturning their sovereign governments. In Cuba’s case the socialist government has defied the U.S. sanctions, blockade and direct aggression for 60 years. Bolton, Pompeo and Trump’s goal is to make the populations of those countries suffer so much that they revolt and overturn their governments. But sanctions don’t always change government policies or remove governments. Reactionary imperialist politicians like Bolton and Pompeo often underestimate the determination of the masses or their governments to resist subjugation. The plans of the U.S. criminals may fail.Sanctions, however, nearly always make the population suffer, with the poorest and most vulnerable hurt most — unless they are protected by a popular socialist government such as Cuba’s.Part of the current new wave of sanctions, said Bolton, is aimed at stopping the delivery of oil from Venezuela to Cuba, hurting the people of both countries. Bolton didn’t say if he was involving the U.S. Navy in this type of blockade, which is an act of war.The governments of all the countries involved have declared their determination to confront U.S. sanctions without changing their principled policies. Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said it well on Twitter: “Those who hold a sword against us will not change our attitude. We Cubans do not surrender. … In Cuba, Cubans rule.”In that same spirit, anti-imperialists in the U.S. have to treat U.S.-imposed sanctions the same way we treat U.S. wars and threats of war. We must mobilize to resist them. And on the basis of the administration’s criminal sanctions, our own goal can be to charge this gang of cutthroats with crimes against humanity.Stop sanctions on Zimbabwe, Iran, Russia, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua!End all U.S. sanctions!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF deplores arrests of journalists during weekend #blacklivesmatter protests

first_img Follow the news on United States News Journalists charged with “obstruction of a highway” in Baton RougeAt least three journalists were arrested and charged with “obstruction of a highway” while covering #blacklivesmatter protests Saturday night in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The protests were in response to the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling by two police officers on July 5. Chris Slaughter, assistant news director for local station WAFB, was arrested Saturday night while working as a field producer on assignment. WAFB news director Robb Hays confirmed that Slaughter was taken into custody after putting one foot onto the highway where he was standing, in order to get a better angle to film. Police had repeatedly ordered people in the area to stay off the highway. At the time of his arrest he was wearing a WAFB shirt and media credentials. Slaughter spent the night in jail and was released Sunday afternoon, but Hays told RSF that the charges against Slaughter are still pending.Lee Stranahan, a reporter for Breitbart news, and Ryan Kailath, a reporter for NPR’s New Orleans affiliate WWNO, were also arrested Saturday and charged with “obstruction of a highway.”Journalists briefly detained in Rochester, New York Carlet Cleare and Justin Carter, both reporters with ABC’s affiliate 13WHAM , were arrested around 9:45pm Friday while covering a protest against police brutality in Rochester, New York. Carter’s arrest was caught live on camera. Both journalists were briefly detained before being released. In a statement, 13WHAM thanked the Rochester police department for “quickly recognizing that this was an inappropriate way to handle the situation and…appreciates the public apology issued by both [the police chief] and [the] Mayor. We encourage better dialogue with law enforcement to better identify reporters in the field to avoid a situation like this.” “The United States, the country of the First Amendment, cannot afford to keep journalists from reporting by arresting them for merely covering protests against police brutality,” said Delphine Halgand, the US Director of Reporters Without Borders.Last year, several journalists were arrested while covering #blacklivesmatter protests. At least two journalists were attacked or arrested by police during the Baltimore protests surrounding Freddie Gray’s death between April 12 and April 28 2015. Another journalist was arrested while filming live coverage of a #blacklivesmatter protest in Minneapolis in November 2015.These events mark an alarming trend of curtailing freedom of the press in the United States.

Hope for Exomphalos

E-learning is not only a measure for saving money

first_img Comments are closed. E-learning is not only a measure for saving moneyOn 23 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today E-learning should be introduced to provide the most effective way ofdelivering staff development rather than as a way of cutting costs, accordingto the CIPD. Martyn Solman, learning, training and development adviser at the CIPD, tolddelegates at the HRD conference last week that e-learning will only besuccessful if it is introduced to address individual business needs rather thanto save money. “The trap of e-learning is that it is seen as a way of saving money,but it is not about that, it is about change management,” he said. Solman also stressed that managers must support e-learning initiatives andbe convinced of their worth if they are to add value. “It is important to get line managers on board, as they are the onescontrolling staff development. If they do not see e-learning as important, itwill be marginalised. What makes e-learning training important is having theorganisation’s support which gives employees time and space to grow,” headded.
