first_imgFinance 31st October 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finland’s state-owned gambling operator Veikkaus said operational efficiencies enabled it to record a lift in profits despite a fall in revenues.In its interim report, Veikkaus said turnover for the three months to 30 September was down 0.7% to €733.9m, continuing a trend that has seen it drop 4.1% to €2.23bn for the year to date.Gross gaming revenue of €422.8m was down 0.9% year-on-year during the quarter, and down 2.1% to €1.27bn for the year to date.The operator said net sales decreased in almost all segments in the nine-month period, however lottery net sales of €267.4m were up by 6.7% thanks to several record-breaking weeks in the early part of the year.Some 57.1% of net sales came from physical outlets and 42.9% from the digital channel. Veikkaus said competition in the online sphere from unlicensed foreign gaming companies was a significant factor in its decrease in overall sales.While revenue has decreased Veikkaus said it was pleased with several indicators relating to responsible gambling. The percentage of identifiable customers within all gaming has increased to 45.2% (up 0.4 percentage points) so far this year. In September, Veikkaus introduced the possibility for gaming machines to authenticate via mobile devices.In Q3, expenses were down 4.2% to €52.0m. Total expenses decreased in January-September by 8.4% compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. Veikkaus said this was influenced by a reduction of non-recurring integration costs, reduction of marketing costs and overall cost effectiveness.For the nine months to 30 September, customers were paid €963.3 million in gaming profits, down 6.7% on the previous year, while the operator paid €151.8 in lottery tax to the state, a drop of 2.1%.Veikkaus registered a profit of €260.8m in Q3 which was up 5.6% year-on-year. So for the year to 30 September, it has made a profit of €762.2m – up 1.3% year-on-year.“Working in a cost-effective way, we’ve been able to keep the profits from starting the year at last year’s level,” said Veikkaus’ president and CEO, Olli Sarekoski.“Veikkaus needs to ensure its ability to perform in the middle of a changing operating environment, irrespective of the decisions that are made regarding the Finnish Gaming system. The changes in the operating environment entail that Veikkaus must focus more and more strongly on the digital channel. In online gaming, Veikkaus currently doesn’t have a genuine Monopoly, but we are competing against foreign gaming operators.” Finland’s state-owned gambling operator Veikkaus said operational efficiencies enabled it to record a lift in profits for the third quarter and the year to date, despite a fall in revenues.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] Además de trabajar con miras a un proyecto del presupuesto 2016-2018, el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal aprobó el 27 de octubre varias resoluciones sobre diversos asuntos sociales que enfrentan la Iglesia y el mundo.Motivado por la labor de sus comités permanentes conjuntos sobre Promoción Social e Interconexión (A&N) y Misión y Ministerio Locales (LMM), el Consejo hacía constar que:Se oponía a las prisiones con fines de lucro e instruía al Tesorero a que evitara invertir en compañías que poseyeran y administraran prisiones y centros de detención con fines de lucro.Llamaba a la Iglesia a proseguir la labor de la Resolución 2009-D035 de la Convención General, Repudio de la Doctrina del Descubrimiento, y la 2012-A128, Examinar el Impacto de la Doctrina del Descubrimiento concientizándose a sí misma acerca del impacto que la doctrina tiene aún sobre el mundo y sobre la Iglesia; yLlamaba a la Iglesia a recordar y vivir en [el espíritu de] la Carta Pastoral de la Cámara de Obispos de marzo de 1994 sobre “el pecado del racismo” y la subsecuente Carta Pastoral de 2006 “Un llamado al Pacto”, y a pronunciarse en solidaridad, en la valoración y protección de todas las personas de color que son discriminadas o, en su defecto, tratadas injustamente o perjudicadas por motivo de su raza o del color de su piel”.Los miembros del A&N y el LMM se reunieron juntos el 25 de octubre durante la mayor parte del día para un conversatorio acerca del racismo, la justicia racial en la Iglesia y en el mundo, y lo que la Iglesia podría hacer para continuar combatiendo el racismo. El debate también incluyó al misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para la Justicia y Promoción Sociales Charles Allen Wynder, Jr., la misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal para la Reconciliación Racial Heidi Kim y Navita Jones, presidente del Comité sobre Antirracismo del Consejo.Lelanda Lee, presidente del A&N, le dijo al resto del Consejo que el conversatorio surgió en parte debido a un deseo de hacer una exploración significativa que fuera algo más que una “encuentro breve, superficial y de suyo frustrante”, con el tema.“Todos necesitamos hacer esta labor [de importantes conversatorios], cada uno de nosotros, por nuestra salvación y la salvación de nuestra amada comunidad”, dijo Lee.Actuando de motu proprio, el A&N también propuso resoluciones, que el Consejo aprobó, respecto a:Condenar las violaciones y otras formas de violencia sexual en la guerra como un delito de lesa humanidad.Apoyar la legislación y los empeños no legislativos que exigen ponerle fin a la discriminación de la mujer respecto al libre acceso a la atención sanitaria. Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Debatió si podría responder al informe anticipado del Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal (TREC) y cómo podría hacerlo. El debate se produjo en torno a una resolución propuesta para formar un grupo de trabajo que prepare una respuesta del Consejo al informe del TREC, que debe dársele a conocer a la Iglesia en diciembre. Ese informe incluirá las recomendaciones que el TREC quiere hacer a la próxima reunión de la Convención General en el verano de 2015.El hermano Robert Sevensky, superior de la Orden de la Santa Cruz y capellán del Consejo Ejecutivo, habla antes de la eucaristía del 26 de octubre, mientras el Rdo. Brandon Mauai, diácono y miembro del Consejo proveniente de Dakota del Norte; la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, y el predicador y miembro del Consejo Dahn Gandell, de Rochester, lo escuchan. El Consejo celebró la eucaristía durante su reunión en el Centro de conferencias del Instituto Marítimo de Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Steve Hutchinson, presidente Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Gobierno y Administración para la Misión (GAM) del Consejo, que había propuesto la resolución, dijo que estuvo motivada por la preocupación de parte de algo de lo que el TREC ha dicho hasta ahora. “Sé que esto suena crítico, pero…no refleja una comprensión realmente plena de lo que el Consejo Ejecutivo hace y de la manera en que funciona, del alcance y el aliento y la profundidad de nuestra responsabilidad”.El Rdo. Brian Baker, miembro del GAM, dijo que parte del objetivo de la resolución propuesta era el sentir que el Consejo debía “tener una voz en el diálogo” acerca de la labor del TREC, El Rdo. Nathaniel Pierce, otro miembro del Consejo, dijo que él se había sentido motivado a sugerir la resolución debido a una “propuesta muy específica que está ahora sobre la mesa” de parte del TREC de reducir el tamaño del Consejo y la forma de elegir a los representantes provinciales.Al final, el Consejo remitió la resolución a su comité ejecutivo al objeto de considerar un proceso a utilizar en la reunión de enero de 2015, y posiblemente más allá [de esa fecha] para que el Consejo contemple cualquier respuesta que pudiera querer hacer al informe del TREC.La reunión del 24 al 27 de octubre tuvo lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo [Maritime Institute Conference Center].Los resúmenes de las resoluciones que el Consejo aprobó en esta reunión se encuentran aquí.La cobertura previa que ENS hizo de esta reunión se encuentra aquí.Algunos miembros del Consejo enviaron mensajes por Twitter desde la reunión valiéndose del código #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].– La Rda.

La resolución también querría que la Iglesia se pronunciara sobre varias reformas del sistema de justicia penal.El Consejo Ejecutivo celebró la eucaristía en la mañana del 26 de octubre durante su reunión en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo de Linthicum Heights, Maryland. Muchas otras conferencias se estaban celebrando en el centro, al mismo tiempo que algunos marinos recibían un adiestramiento especializado, y el Rdo. Dahn Gandell, miembro del Consejo, pegó una serie de avisos en que los invitaba a ellos y al personal del centro a esa eucaristía. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Los miembros del Consejo aprobaron también una resolución del A&N acerca de las pérdidas sufridas por palestinos e israelíes como resultado de la Guerra de Gaza en 2014 y, entre otras cosas, solicitan que el Comité de Préstamos de Justicia Económica considere suplementar sus inversiones de 2013 en los Territorios Palestinos y retar a las diócesis a hacer inversiones semejantes.El consejo también dijo estar en oración “con nuestras hermanas y nuestros hermanos de Liberia, la Iglesia de la Provincia de África Occidental y todos los países donde este virus [el ébola] amenaza la salud humana y las estructuras sociales y donde ha cobrado la vidas de millares [de personas]”. La resolución aplaude la labor de la Iglesia Episcopal en Liberia, a la comunidad religiosa en ese país, a las organizaciones de base y a los individuos, incluido el clero liberiano, y todas las organizaciones e individuos que han “fomentado esperanzas, conciencia y materiales y fondos”. La resolución reta a las comunidades religiosas del mundo a alentar una respuesta más enérgica y generosa frente a los desafíos [que impone] la epidemia del ébola”.Finalmente, la resolución, que se originó en el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Misión Mundial del Consejo, “encomienda las almas de los que han muerto a la amorosa protección de Dios y ora por los que están en duelo” y dice que los miembros del Consejo “viven con la esperanza del día en que celebraremos la buena nueva de que este virus ha sido contenido y que podamos aclamar a nuestros hermanas y hermanos según rehacen sus vidas en su país”.En otra decisiónTambién durante la última sesión plenaria, el Consejo:Otorgó $150.000 en incrementos anuales de $50.000 a partir de este año al Ministerio Chino de Li-Tim Oi en la Diócesis de Los Ángeles como una manera de posibilitar la extensión del ministerio a personas de ascendencia china. El dinero provendrá de fondos fiduciarios dados por el ministerio a los chinos luego de que los comunistas tomaran el poder.Dedicó casi dos horas al comienzo de la jornada a una sesión ejecutiva para debatir el último informe de su subcomité sobre la reubicación del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en Manhattan. No se tomó ninguna decisión sobre el informe.Instruyó a los funcionarios que presiden (la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados Rda. Gay Clark Jennings) a nombrar un equipo de trabajo que estudie el problema de las diócesis que no pueden costear su plena participación en la Convención General a fin de identificar los problemas en torno a esta dificultad así como las fuentes de financiación a que haya que recurrir. El equipo ha de informar al Consejo Ejecutivo en enero de 2015. La resolución comenzó con la preocupación de Misión Mundial respecto a la capacidad de las diócesis de la IX Provincia de participar en la Convención, según Martha Gardner, presidente del comité.Aprobó y revisó el presupuesto de 2015 para la Iglesia Episcopal. La Convención General aprueba el presupuesto trienal, y el Consejo con frecuencia revisa los tres presupuestos anuales, a partir de cambios ocurridos en ingresos y egresos. El presupuesto revisado de 2015 pronto se publicará aquí.

We proposed to balance the entire volume consisting of the bedrooms on one side with the swimming pool on the other. In the middle, a structural wall and elevator core support the weight of both the bedrooms and the swimming pool. Next, we suspend the floors from the swimming pool using 100 mm diameter steel rods to avoid the traditional column-and-beam structure, thereby gaining more ceiling space. Due to the suspension, the slab of first floor is elevated from the ground, leaving an opening for natural ventilation at the basement and the entire house. For additional structural safety, we put supplementary columns for the swimming pool and the living spaces.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USMEF Promotes American Pork in Japan Source: NAFB News service The U.S. Meat Export Federation is looking at growth opportunities for branded, thick-cut products in two new initiatives to increase American pork sales. In Japan – thinly sliced meats are standard – but USMEF-Japan hired popular cooking instructor Rika Yukimasa to develop U.S. pork recipes and introduce Japanese consumers to techniques that work for larger cuts during a two-month promotion that ends at the end of this year. A group of 160 food bloggers and homemakers are learning easy cooking roast pork recipes from Yukimasa for this current promotion. As for branded pork – Japan’s competition in this market has more than 400 domestic brands – but U.S. pork is gaining a place in the market. USMEF conducted an American Branded Pork Campaign to encourage consumers to purchase U.S. branded pork earlier this year. The campaign focus was to traders and distributors – but now they are adding activities to increase awareness of the quality and value of these products to consumers. During the first eight months of this year – Japan purchased 677.8-million pounds – or 1.3-billion dollars-worth – of U.S. pork – a six-percent increase in value on six-percent lower volumes compared to 2011.

A number of events are happening on campus now through the conclusion of the convention on Thursday. One staple of convention is the annual service project.Indiana FFA North Region Vice President Savannah Bordner told HAT, “We’re making 100 tie-blankets for Lafayette Transitional Housing for the greater Lafayette area to support its community members and the people in need. We also have four different ‘can-structions’ being made, and then at Food Finders we have another ‘can-struction’ being made. That totals 6,200 cans being donated back to Food Finders after this week is over.”Lafayette Transitional Housing Volunteer Coordinator Sharon Bardonner addressing over 100 FFA members making blankets for the homeless they serve.Sharon Bardonner, Volunteer Coordinator for Lafayette Transitional Housing, told the students about the great impact they would have on those in Tippecanoe County who are experiencing homelessness or are in a housing crisis.“We’ll be able to stock our pantries that we have with these kinds of items, with linens and blankets and so forth, so that when someone comes new into the program we’ll have supplies to give to them. 100 of anything is a pretty substantial number for us. On a daily basis we have about 60 individuals who will come in for meals.”Bordner says they’re happy to work with LTHC and Food Finders Food Bank on these service projects. She told me it’s all about the FFA motto, “Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve.”“It’s great to see 317 members from across the state doing that here today.”New state officers will be elected Thursday during the final general session.

I can remember his eyelashes and I can remember his skin and I just really felt a connection with this elephant. My heart broke for him. At the time I didn’t understand the whole story of how he would’ve gotten there and what would’ve happened to him, but I did know he was chained by one leg.”This heartbreak fueled her passion to learn about animals and their relationships with humans. Later in life, Irvine was inspired once again to do the research and write a book after seeing firsthand the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina and working with homeless pet owners nationwide. Before publishing this book, she assumed the homeless couldn’t properly care for a pet because she shared the ideology many people still believe today – having a house is necessary to give a dog or cat a good life.After traveling to five cities and interviewing over 75 homeless people with pets for her book though, she learned that many owners actually had adequate food and water for their pets. Many times the pet came first, before the needs of the owner.In Irvine’s book she mentioned an interaction she had with a homeless man where he told her he didn’t need any help for his dog because he was being taken care of. He pointed to his belongings, revealing one bag of dog food and another with a water jug. With the dog’s needs already met, the man begged for change from those passing by to feed himself.While Irvine said she doesn’t believe an animal’s love solves all materialistic issues on the street, she does think it builds a moral identity and a positive sense of self-worth. Irvine found pets to be the reason some homeless people avoided committing suicide.Irvine also talked with students about the impact natural disasters have on animals.With around 60 percent of households having multiple pets, Irvine said for nearly every 1,000 homes affected by a natural disaster, 1,500 pets are also affected.During her research after Katrina hit, she saw dogs suffer from displacement and people scramble to find crates and kennels to transport their pets. Irvine said she witnessed pop-up shelters stacking animals on top of one another because so many animals lost their homes.Not only were animals displaced from their homes after the hurricane, but tens of thousands of pigs on farms died in the floods. Irvine also said flooding caused an outbreak of diseases to people’s livestock. As a result of this devastating loss, she said many farmers committed suicide.Looking to further her research on human relations with animals, Irvine said she wants to write her next book on how animals are connected to broader social problems.Throughout her visit to TCU Irvine urged students to take interest in learning more about human-animal relationships. “You have this fabulous minor that [students] could get involved in or even just talk to some of the wonderful faculty members on if they want to do research,” said Irvine.“You have this fabulous minor that [students] could get involved in or even just talk to some of the wonderful faculty members on if they want to do research,” said Irvine.More importantly, though, Irvine said the biggest takeaway from her research is the relationships between humanity as a whole.“You see us as all connected, that what happens to one person it can happen to us all, what happens to an animal can happen to a human,” Irvine said. “If you see us as connected, then it becomes important to pay attention to the little things.” Previous articleHoroscope: September 29, 2017Next articleGruesome injury for Cachet Lue blooms into new leadership opportunities Kelsey Emery RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR + posts ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

As CoreLogic reports, national single-family rent prices were steadily on the upswing between 2010 and 2017, but with year-over-year rent price growth rate decelerating gradually since peaking at 4.3 percent in February 2016.The SFRI “measures changes to the cost to rent single-family rental homes, including condominiums, using a repeat-rent analysis to measure the same rental properties over time.” CoreLogic’s analysis is done on both a national basis and spotlighting 75 specific Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs).In November 2017, single-family rent prices increased 2.7 percent year-over-year, which marked a 1.6 percent decline in the growth rate below the February 2016 peak. Rent prices on high-end homes, defined as properties with rent prices 125 percent or more of a region’s median rent, were up 2.3 year-over-year in November, up from a gain of 1.7 percent in November 2016. However, lower-end properties (with rents less than 75 percent of the regional median rent) increased 3.8 percent year-over-year, down from a gain of 5 percent in November 2016.The chart below tracks rent growth across 20 select CBSAs, with Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, Washington showing the highest year-over-year rent growth at 5 percent. Only two of the selected CBSAs showed a decrease in year-over-year rent prices: Urban Honolulu, Hawaii at -1.6 percent and Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, Florida at -0.2 percent.Houston, Texas, showed a year-over-year rent price growth of 2.5 percent, compared with a decline of 1.5 percent in November 2016. According to CoreLogic, “While rents in Houston are showing strength due to increased demand after Hurricane Harvey, markets in Florida continue to show weakening rent growth despite Hurricane Irma.” Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida showed a 1.5 percent point lower year-over-year increase in rents compared with November 2016. Rents in Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, Florida continued to decrease in November 2017.You can read CoreLogic’s latest Single-Family Rent Index (SFRI) by clicking here.For more insights into the state of the single-family rental market, be sure to register for the 2018 Single-Family Rental Summit, scheduled for March 19-21 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.

While quashing a case filed by a woman against her in-laws, justice Jaishree Thakur observed: “It has become a common practice to use the provisions of Section 498- A IPC as a weapon rather than shield by disgruntled wives. The simplest way to harass is to get the relatives of the husband roped in under this provision, no matter they are bed ridden grand parents of the husband or the relatives living abroad for decades.” The accused in-laws of the complainant had approached the High Court seeking to quash the criminal case registered against them. On a perusal of the complaint, the court observed that it does not disclose specific allegations against the petitioners except casual reference of their names that the husband of the complainant gave her beatings at the instance of petitioners. The court then quashed the complaint on the ground that prima facie case was not attracted against the in-laws in the absence of specific allegations. Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
