Cook ran day-to-day operations during Jobs’s last absence in 2009.“It wasn’t expected. This will come as a surprise to Apple investors and definitely take some shine off the Apple stock,” said Alexander Peterc, equity analyst at Exane.“But even if Steve Jobs never returns to Apple, I would not expect a visible, tangible impact on how Apple is executing over the next couple of years.” Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Strategy Slots The Office of Responsible Gambling for the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) is to invest AU$1.3m (£715,712/€799,788/US$909,378) in a number of projects designed to help protect consumers from gambling-related harm.Among the initiatives is a new website which, being developed by the University of Sydney Gambling Treatment and Research Clinic, will enable consumers to self-exclude from multiple gambling venues.The project, which will receive AU$176,400 in funding, builds on the state’s current self-exclusion technology by allowing players to voluntarily exclude themselves online. Currently the ClubsNSW multi-venue programme requires people to self-exclude from a gambling venue in person.Deakin University has also received AU$250,000 to deliver two online courses that will provide education and research on responsible gambling and preventing and reducing harm.According to the Office, these new courses will offer a social learning approach for the community, covering young people, Indigenous, lower socioeconomic and vulnerable groups. School teachers and support centres throughout NSW will also have access to the courses.“Just as technology is changing the way people gamble with the rise of online and app-based betting, it is also driving exciting new initiatives to support people to gamble responsibly,” NSW Office of Responsible Gambling director Natalie Wright said.“By funding programs and research projects like these, we will further develop and underpin the evidence base for responsible gambling policy and programs.”The new funding comes after the Office last month provided almost AU$400,000 in grants to fund research into reducing and preventing gambling-related harm. The sum is being split between five universities across Australia, supporting projects that focus on helping young people and families, and employing new technology to tackle dangers that may arise from gambling.Image: williamnyk Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Slot Machines Regions: Oceania Australia 27th June 2019 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

first_img In the second part of iGamingBusiness.com’s interview with Vermantia chief executive Filippos Antonopoulos, he discusses the importance of a diversified geographic footprint, and explains why he sees the supplier’s majority shareholder Arena Racing Company as one of the most exciting businesses in the industry. Regions: Africa Europe AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 21st August 2019 | By Robin Harrison In the second part of iGamingBusiness.com’s interview with Vermantia chief executive Filippos Antonopoulos, he discusses the importance of a diversified geographic footprint, and explains why he sees the supplier’s majority shareholder Arena Racing Company as one of the most exciting businesses in the industry. Read part one here.To ensure a business can withstand regulatory change in one market, a diversified geographic footprint is key Antonopoulos says: “We are obviously big fans of emerging international markets.”This, he explains, is because a supplier can control their business model, rather than end up with a patchwork of different agreements and terms, depending on what sort of partnerships are available, as is the case in more established, competitive markets.“In terms of which markets are good, you want to look for a few basic good points,” Antonopoulos explains. “The must-haves are: as many operators competing as possible and as large a market as possible.“So let’s take two examples. Both Nigeria and Ethiopia are very large from a population point of view, so they fit the bill of a large market. Let’s say that Ethiopia is run by a single operator similar to OPAP in Greece, and Nigeria has a multitude of operators. You want to be a vendor that wishes to go in with a strong solution – so which one of the two is better?“From an expansion point of view you’d say Nigeria is better, as there isn’t this binary case of one operator, so you’re in or out.”A new Arena
 Yet for a business with such an international outlook, and a CEO very aware of the need to avoid being wedded to a single market, Vermantia is now majority owned by Arena Racing Company (ARC), a UK racetrack operator. It’s clear that Antonopoulos sees huge potential in the business, even against a backdrop of uncertainty for the wider racing sector.“Arena is in some ways it is a very mature business that operates within a stretched environment in terms of margins and gaming climate,” Antonopoulos says. “On the one hand it looks like an ‘old economy’ asset.“On the other hand, it is to me one of the most valuable businesses in the world today,” he adds, however. “In the sports and racing part of the gambling universe, they are one of the very few true generator of their own content that is also able to go all the way to the shop.“It is as if ARC is the combination of FIFA and Sportradar. They own the racecourses and create the sports and betting content together,” he explains. “So in terms of potential, they are a diamond.”Not only can Vermantia provide the technology to bring ARC content into betting shops around the world, creating new revenue streams, but it further diversifies, but it can provide technical know-how to update the racing – and horserace betting – experience.“That’s what ARC’s board sees, why they have made very bold and aggressive moves. And that’s who I like to collaborate with, those with aggressive strategies.”This aggressive approach to business has served him well in that he was able to build Vermantia, a relative latecomer to the retail supply market, into a thriving business. He points out that not only did this mean the business had to operate in a more efficient and effective way, but it also benefitted from not being wedded to legacy technology.“We run what is the world’s largest broadcaster for the gaming industry from a space that is one fifth the size of our biggest competitor,” he says. “Why? Are we smarter? We’d like to think so. Are we more cash-intensive, if we derive more value from each Euro? Maybe.“The reality is that coming in later into the market we had to be a bit smarter but also had the chance to use cheaper and better technologies”Next up is OKTO, a new payment solutions provider. As with Vermantia, Antonopoulos is targeting a mature and highly competitive market, in which consolidation has seen a number of major incumbents establish powerful positions.Yet he believes that with a better understanding of what players actually need will allow OKTO to carve out market share.“As I invest a lot in knowing the player, I also want to participate in monetising the player,” he explains.“There is no better way to monetise this knowledge than to go back, design build and come back to the player offering them a wallet solution. There are few things as true and directly connected to the player as their wallet.”OKTO plans to launch a range of solutions, including digital banking tools for challenger banks and retail and mobile payment products. It’s all based on the rationale that it creates a product build specifically for customers, rather than to aid businesses.The opportunity stems from the European Union’s second Payment Services Directive, which essentially breaks down banks’ monopoly on user date. Merchants will be able to retrieve account data from the banks, processing payments without redirecting customers to services such as PayPal or VisaAntonopoulos is under no illusions that payments is a highly competitive sector. Nevertheless, he adds, he believes the current range of products and solutions leave room for improvement.“As a user, I can see the seams of the dress,” he says of the current payments market. “I really think that I can sew a one-piece dress.”Boldness and confidence in his, and his colleagues’, abilities have already worked for Vermantia. It remains to be seen whether he will have the same level of success upon the foray into payments.​ Interview: Filippos Antonopoulos, Vermantia – Part 2 Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Legal & compliance Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Payments Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresslast_img read more

Already in the detailing phase. It was a very horizontal and full of aediculae house, containing independent suites for the 23 and 30 years old son and daughter. The project resembled very much Frank Lloyd Wright prairie houses, belonging to a place, with the mixed structure of Stone walls, steel, and wood. The owners ended up suddenly with the opportunity to acquire another beautiful condo lot in a forest area in Correas and we changed the address of the project adapting the program of construction.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresIn the new address, in order to insert new architecture in the beautiful existing context, we developed the project together with some reforms services, along 18 months in a very intuitive and collaborative process with the owners, so typical of reforms. Three original suites were preserved and enlarged and a new external master bedroom was created. A new living/dining/playing room with integrated kitchen, home theater, and varanda is the central space of the project, with its customized dining table and picturesque wood materiality. There were created also aediculae such as an open and covered pavilion bar containing barbecue and pizza oven, an ofurô pavilion, fitness room pavilion, workshop/barn, two running water natural pools, inserted in the local river that crosses the land.Save this picture!© Anita Soares18 months before, when we started projecting their other house, in the other neighborhood, I started buying stones, pieces of reused wood, doors and windows from demolitions, rare and high-quality material acquired from different sources that are generally offered to me – people many times want to get rid of this kind of material because they don’t have where to store, where to deploy, or because of the human labour costs involved in restoring. At that same time, I finally could acquire(after 6 years trying) pieces of wood from a heavy engineering firm, that were used as floating decks for excavation and land moving machines in flooded areas.Save this picture!© André NazarethSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© André Nazareth I tried to buy them to deploy in my house years before, having realized the potentiality of the material, but could acquire only when the place where they were stored changed was sold. The pieces remained for a while exposed to weathering, gaining unique texture without compromising its resistance, because they are high-density hardwood: maçaranduba, garapa, Pau Brasil, ipê tabaco, cumaru, etc. After selection and cleaning of the pieces with bench saw, and a lot of sandpaper manual work, there were obtained 17m3 of high-quality material, in perfect conditions, which makes up large part of the structure of the Project, associated to other systems like metallic structure and sealed waterproof wooden floors deployed in the green roofs, in some parts waterproof concrete slabs, covered by green roof.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe concept was integrating architecture and landscape through the single-story solution and creation of aediculae spreading the constructed area in parts, resulting in a group of pavillions blended with the lush surrounding Atlantic Forest. The project respected local relief, boulders, and native pre-existing species. Save this picture!© Anita SoaresNatural materials like stone and wood were extensively deployed, non-reflective colors like English green were used for the metallic apparent pieces and moss green for the apparent parts of external masonry. Bulky pieces of hardwood in unusual formats(23x23cm or 30x30cm) were used in a great part of the structure, as much as the leftovers of the wood cleaning process, creating a wood omnipresence in most of the spaces. Some details like the entrance gate and the barn external cladding are also an example of recycled wood use.Save this picture!© André NazarethThe horizontality of the construction that allows views of surrounding mountains, the creation of aediculae spread through the garden, integrating with the landscape, natural materiality, light roofing systems, transparency, previously developed concepts with the owners, emphasizing adequacy to the existing context. Influences; Zanine, Frank Lloyd Wright, Peter Zumthor, rural architecture from southern Brazil and the northwest USA. The piece of land is enormous(more than 35.000m2) but the existing house had small but very cozy suites, that were preserved. Save this picture!© André NazarethThe living room also with modest measures was enlarged creating a unified and functional space, integrated with the landscape. The house attachments/aediculae – fitness room, master bedroom, workshop/barn, garage, ofuro pavilion, were erected from foundation until finishing. The existing suites were preserved with minimum changes, the living room was extended with a bulky wood structure, creating the central space of the project, the living/dining/playing/home theater/varanda/kitchen room.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe differential was the integration with nature. Landscape design as an architectural element. Wood and stone materiality, the technicity of the spans, 10,5mts metallic beams in the garage, 3,80 cantilever structure in fitness room, and in pizza/barbecue metallic/wooden roof. The living room, kitchen, and home theater are one only unified space, with no partitions. Even though with modest measures, adapted from the existing house, the large wooden framed glass openings and the integrated space visually expands the domestic life towards the garden and the region magnificent landscape. Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThere is a comfortable and functional spatial sizing avoiding excess baggage for life. Wood deployed as the main element, in flooring, structure, windows and doors framings and roofs create a tactile and cozy atmosphere. In the corridors, closets and suites bathrooms, skylights were created making use of natural light.Save this picture!© André NazarethFrom a sustainability point of view, deploying reused stones and wood minimizes cut of trees and rocky quarries, investing in human labor rather than in extractive, being considered responsible and ecological use of material, according to LEED-GBC. Lightning: Indirect lighting throughout the house, in amber color tone, very comfortable for the eyes. Centennial trees lighting and different colors of light for each element, stones, water and trees/bushes. Light fittings designed in copper, harmonizing with wood structure and with the gardens The exploitation of topography, stones, native arboreal species. Save this picture!© André NazarethThe precise insertion of new species and the clever use of existing elements. Landscape designer: Lula Cancio – Floriverde Paisagismo Integration with nature, natural materiality, spreading the construction in parts, creating an interesting route through the luxuriant Atlantic Forest natural landscape, resulting in a light architecture that responds and belongs to place. From different points of the garden, you can see the famous mountains Mãe D’água, Pedra do Cone, Pico da Alcobaça, interacting with architecture. In general, the structure was made from wooden square logs (23x23cm and 30x30cm), and thick wooden planks, masonry parts received moss green acrylic painting or wooden slats cladding. New wooden windows framings with wide openings were made from Freijó.Save this picture!© André NazarethSustainability – reusing material, skylights in closets and bathrooms. Automation – irrigation, lighting cenarium and entrance gates. Wood, Stone, and steel were predominant, combined in many ways. Wood for the visual, animic and thermal comfort.Stone, for the perenniality, deployed in many external flooring areas, garden stairs, natural pools claddings, paths pavings, and some wall cladding. Sleek steel structures associated with wooden floor pieces, sealed with an asplalt blanket and covered by native epiphetae, in a green roof system that demands no soil, contrast with bulky pillars made from square wood logs. The wide span of the garage, the big cantilevered roof in the fitness room and in barbecue cover were possible due to metallic structure, “i” profile and square tubular pieces.Save this picture!© Anita SoaresThe interior project was very simple, following exterior materiality, adapting the owner’s existing furniture and works of art, some amazing pieces as Oscar Niemeyer armchairs and Katharina Welper’s paintings. Also to be mentioned are the room solid hardwood doors, some in Sucupira, some in Canela, very rare and high-quality species. Customized countertops, kitchen cabinet, dining table, fitness room’s sideboards, home theater’s sofa were made out of noble Brazilian scavenged wood, Peroba Rosa e Canela preta.Save this picture!© André NazarethProject gallerySee allShow lessTehran Skyscraper Combines Cryptocurrency Mining with Vertical Water ParkArchitecture NewsFlow Gallery / John Pardey ArchitectsSelected Projects Share House in Correas / Rodrigo Simão ArquiteturaSave this projectSaveHouse in Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura ArchDaily Photographs:  André Nazareth, Anita Soares Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Save this picture!© André Nazareth+ 46Curated by Matheus Pereira Share “COPY” Rodrigo Simão “COPY” Manufacturers: Antonio Bassous, Brennand, Chão de barro, Comercial Gerdau, Discafer, Edjur Marcenaria, Imperfer, Jorge Barbosa, Marcenaria Pica-pau, Sergio Loos, Serra tintas, Serraria Boa Vista, Serraria Itaipava, Temper master CopyAbout this officeRodrigo Simão ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPetrópolisBrazilPublished on June 03, 2019Cite: “House in Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura” [Casa em Correas / Rodrigo Simão Arquitetura] 03 Jun 2019.

The house overlooks the hamlet “La Place”, in Ayent, central Valais. The project takes root in the site’s memory, by reinterpreting the atmosphere and the materialization of its vernacular architecture. Like the barns of the hamlet, the house stands in a meadow that is left blank. Thus, the project frees itself from all boundaries. The grass grows according to the seasons and the livestock can come and graze. The main terrace is on top of the house, away from prying eyes and offering a stunning view.Save this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderSave this picture!East elevationSave this picture!© Rasmus NorlanderThe materiality of the project recalls the barns’ one, with a mineral cold-looking structure and a wooden roof opened on both gable ends.

first_imgJustice walk for Tymar Crawford, July 15.Tymar Crawford, a 28-year-old Black man, was shot dead in his driveway by the Pensacola Police Department on July 5. Police claimed that Crawford attempted to attack them and they shot in “self-defense.” However, Crawford’s fiancee, Kimberly Henderson, and children, who were inside the house and witnessed the entire incident, say Crawford had his hands up when he was killed. The local media are, of course, promoting the narrative of the police. Arms of the capitalist state will do anything they can to maintain a grip on the people. People aren’t fooled: Tymar Crawford was murdered! There have been nonstop demonstrations, social media campaigns and rallies to win justice for Crawford. With the Pensacola Dream Defenders in the lead, other groups involved in organizing these actions have been the Answer Coalition, Social Trans Initiative (Strive) and Workers World Party. Over 600 people, mainly Black Pensacola residents, marched July 15 from Crawford’s front yard to the doors of the Pensacola Police Department. Chanting and waving signs, they shut down a lane of traffic on Cervantes Street, one of the busiest roads in downtown Pensacola. Behind those marching on foot was a steady procession of cars and trucks driven by Crawford’s family and friends.The police did not attempt to interfere with this powerful action, even when it was brought to their front door. At the station Henderson spoke about the outpouring of love and support she has received and the desire for justice for Crawford.  Dozens of cars driving by honked and waved support. A list of demands made by Crawford’s family was read: release the names of all cops involved in Crawford’s murder, terminate them immediately,  decrease the criminalization of marijuana possession and loitering, halt random police stops in low-income neighborhoods, create an all-civilian oversight committee with a police commission and civilian complaint office, hold quarterly police training by local organizations, and financial restitution to the family of Tymar Crawford to cover funeral costs. Pensacola Mayor Grover Robinson already agreed to some of these demands, such as decreasing the criminalization of marijuana possession and loitering, but the police department has refused to release the names of officers involved in Crawford’s murder. Until all demands are met, protests and disruptions will continue. Tymar Crawford will have justice, or the city of Pensacola will have no peace!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia May 18, 2021 Find out more EthiopiaAfrica Receive email alerts Three journalists and six bloggers who have been held for the past five months were denied bail by a federal court in Addis Ababa yesterday after the prosecution argued that article 3 of the 2009 anti-terrorism law, under which they are detained, precludes release on bail. The defence said article 3’s bail prohibition does not apply because none of them has been individually charged with a specific crime under the anti-terrorism law. The defence also argued that article 3 violates the constitutional guarantee of the right to release on bail.The three journalists are Tesfalem Waldyes, Edom Kasaye and Asmamaw Hailegiorgis, and the six bloggers – all members of the Zone 9 collective – are Atnaf Berhane, Mahlet Fantahun, Befekadu Hailu, Abel Wabella, Natnail Feleke and Zelalem Kibret. One of the collective’s co-founders, Soliyana Shimelis, is being prosecuted in absentia.“The Ethiopian government is clearly trying to gag the media,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “These three journalists and nine bloggers have been held for nearly five months without being given the least guarantee of due process. The prosecution still has not said what precisely they are supposed to have done to justify the charges. We call for their immediate release because they have no place being in prison.”The prosecution accused them on 17 July of “organizing themselves into covert sub-groups to overthrow the government by contacting and receiving finance and training from two designated terrorist groups” – the US-based opposition group Ginbot 7 and the separatist Oromo Liberation Front (OLF). They are facing up to 15 years in prison under the anti-terrorism law.Restrictions on freedom of information have grown in recent months in Ethiopia, where at least six journalists are currently detained in connection with their work. A state broadcaster fired 20 employees because of their political views on 25 June, and the justice ministry announced on 5 August that it intended to bring criminal charges against six news publications for “encouraging terrorism and endangering national security.”Ethiopia is ranked 143rd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
