It allowed trade in derivative markets to continue. This theft and a hacking attack on the Austrian registry on 10 January follows a raft of scandals to hit the market in the past two years, including VAT fraud, a phishing scam (or computer fraud) and the re-sale of used carbon credits.“All traders have left the market – this is serious,” said one trader.Europe’s top climate official, Jos Delbeke, said he was “speechless about the negligence some member states have been showing”. center_img whatsapp EU suspends carbon market Share whatsapplast_img read more

LuckyCasino snapped up ahead of Swedish market opening

first_img A recently-incorporated company led by former Vera&John chief executive Johan Königslehner has seized control of Viral Interactive’s LuckyCasino brand ahead of Sweden’s market opening up at the start of 2019.Glitnor Group, which struck the deal with Viral Interactive’s parent company, Fortuity Holdings, was registered in Malta on April 20 as Glitnor Holding Limited.Königslehner was CEO of Vera&John for more than five years, through to October 2016.A statement to announce the deal said that Glitnor is “backed by a team of industry and Swedish based iGaming veterans”, with the timing of the deal allowing Glitnor “to be ideally positioned to capitalise further on the recent regulatory developments in Sweden”.Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but as part of the transaction, Daniel Eriksson has stepped down as Viral Interactive’s CEO in order to become Glitnor’s new head of business development.“Being part of building Viral Interactive to where it is and developing the LuckyCasino brand has been a great experience,” Eriksson said. “Joining Glitnor and driving their business development forward in this next period of growth is a challenge that I’m really looking forward to.”Viral Interactive, which was granted a licence by the Malta Gaming Authorities in October 2016, is also licensed with the Gambling Commission in the UK. LuckyCasino.com Viral is a white label multi-channel casino and betting solutions provider.Fortuity Holdings director Martin Prantner (pictured) said: “We’re delighted to have concluded this deal for the LuckyCasino brand which is powered by the Finnplay technology.“We believe Johan and his team are uniquely placed in the market, given their track record of managing and scaling online casino brands in the past, and they shall therefore ensure the LuckyCasino brand is taken to the next level of growth.”Königslehner added: “Our team has many years in developing high-growth B2C casino brands such as Vera&John in emerging and mature regulated markets.“We are tapping into the fast growing pay and play concept developing in Sweden and Finland with no account creation needed and instant withdrawals. We believe this concept is part of the future and shall be successful in the regulated Swedish market next year.”At iGB Live! last week in Amsterdam, Adam Kostyal, senior vice-president at Nasdaq, which operates the Stockholm Stock Exchange, said that the upcoming re-regulation of the Swedish market had led to a flurry of activity from international operators exploring the opportunity to secure a listing.Sweden’s gaming regulator recently urged operators to apply as early as possible when the licensing window opens on August 1 ahead of the market opening up in January 2019.

Photo: Diocese of Saldanha Bay[Anglican Communion News Service] Bishop Raphael Hess, of Southern Africa’s Saldanha Bay diocese is making good strides on his 800km pilgrimage from one end of the diocese to the other.The journey, which he is undertaking during Lent, touches each of the six Archdeaconries that make up the diocese. The Bishop has been sleeping in villages along the way, listening to and engaging with parishioners as he journeys.His route takes him from Malmesbury to Wellington, through Paarl, along the byways to Klapmuts, Northpine, Kraaifontein and Bellville; then continuing through the city streets to Goodwood, Table View and Atlantis and finally out into the country as he heads up the West Coast of South Africa meeting all whose homes are the villages, fishing communities and farm lands.The Bishop said, “I want to communicate to all within our Diocese along its length and breadth, walking through the dust, that this Pilgrimage invites us to strip ourselves of all that divides us, to be able to walk on the earth and in this instance one of the oldest parts of our planet, recalling the ancient Khoi and San people, having lived in these parts from time immemorial. This Pilgrimage of possibilities offers me and indeed all of us keeping the Holy Season of Lent, a time to walk, listen, pray and reflect in the silence of the land, the sea and the wind.”Canon David Mills who has been reporting on the pilgrimage said the journey has indeed been a blessed one thus far with many opportunities for the bishop and his team to learn more about the lives of those in the diocese.He recounted one encounter between the Bishop and fisherman on the road to Lamberts Bay: “On the road between Elandsbaai and Lamberts Bay the Bishop encountered a fishing boat, complete with crew on the road!“The trailer carrying the boat had a faulty wheel thus allowing a God-given opportunity for Bishop Raphael to introduce himself and speak to the fishermen about their life and the challenges facing them.“It was made clear to the Bishop that while none of the fishermen had licenses to fish, nevertheless they had to continue fishing to put food on the table for their families. Bishop Raphael identified with their dilemma and expressed compassion for their predicament – he committed himself totake this concern further in dialogue with the relevant authorities.”The pilgrimage, called a “Lenten Pilgrimage of Possibilities”, started on Ash Wednesday, March 5, and will end on Easter Sunday, April 20, at an early morning service in the coastal village of Port Nolloth just south of the South African – Namibian border.During the pilgrimage, hundreds of the estimated 150,000 Anglicans living in the region are expected to participate in the pilgrimage, accompanying the Bishop on a leg of the journey or simply by raising funds through sponsoring the 800km walk. Each day, pilgrims are walking some 20kms starting and ending with prayers for the people and needs of the areas through which they walk.Meetings in local churches and with community leaders will also take place. During Holy Week, Ordinands from the diocese will join the Bishop on his pilgrimage as he completes the final 150km between O’Kiep and Port Nolloth.Any sponsorship money raised by the Bishop or others on the walk will go towards the development of people in rural areas of the diocese, as well as towards the work of theological education for our future generations of laity, deacons and priests.

4 Ways to Help Your Child Exercise Their Brain This Summer

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here Kate The Anatomy of Fear LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 5 ways to avid summer slide 1 COMMENT by LearningRxWhile summer break is a fun time packed with family activities it’s also when a phenomenon strikes that teachers know all too well—the “summer slide”—or the loss of knowledge and ability that occurs when formal education stops during the summer.Research shows that all young people experience learning losses when they don’t engage in educational activities during the summer. In fact, the average student loses approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in math computation skills over the summer months. Teachers typically spend four weeks re-teaching or reviewing material that students have forgotten over summer break, according to the John Hopkins Center for Summer Learning.“It doesn’t have to be that way,” says Adam Butler, co-owner and director, LearningRx Nashville-Brentwood. “While your brain is not a muscle, the adage ‘use it or lose it’ certainly holds true for your brain too. Mental exercise can keep the brain strong, just as physical exercise can keep the body strong.” To avoid the summer slide, Butler recommends brain games and exercises that target cognitive skills, the underlying skills needed to learn. “At LearningRx our intensive one-on-one brain training programs target these cognitive skills quickly and effectively to strengthen them,” says Butler. “But, to help slow the summer slide, there are fun games and activities parents can use with their kids that are perfect to play in the car, at home, or on vacation.”Brain training experts at LearningRx offer the following ideas for parents to stimulate young minds and have fun this summer:1.20 Questions – Think of a person or thing and give your child 20 chances to guess what it is by asking yes or no questions. Sharpens memory, logic and reasoning skills.2.Rhyme Time – Have your child choose four rhyming words and use them to create a poem. For younger kids, simply say a word then take turns coming up with words that rhyme with it. Builds auditory analysis, verbal rhythm and memory.3. Needle in a Haystack – Take a page from a newspaper and time your child as she circles all occurrences of a specific letter or word. Improves visual processing speed and sustained attention.4.Counting Counts – Encourage your child to count by 2’s, 3’s, 4’s etc. when they go up stairs, dribble a basketball, swing on a swing set or jump rope.Builds math fluency, processing speed, divided attention and memory.“And don’t forget about reading,” says Butler. “Simply getting your child to read everyday is another powerful way to slow the summer slide.”For details on Learning Rx summer programs, go here.center_img Please enter your comment!

CONFIRMED: Japan will not play again in 2020

first_imgMonday Sep 14, 2020 CONFIRMED: Japan will not play again in 2020 Japan’s national rugby union team will not play again this year because of safety fears related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Japanese Rugby Football Union (JRFU) said on Monday.ADVERTISEMENTHead coach Jamie Joseph said Japan, who had games against England and Wales cancelled earlier this year due to the outbreak, had been due to play against Europe’s top teams in an eight-nation tournament later this year.Japan have not played a Test match since their quarter-final loss to eventual champions South Africa at last year’s Rugby World Cup on home soil.“We have concluded there will be no Test matches this year,” JRFU Chairman Kensuke Iwabuchi told a media briefing on Monday.“As a staff we are thinking proactively how to use the momentum of our achievement at the World Cup to move forward.”Since signing a new contract following Japan’s stunning World Cup run, Joseph has stressed the importance of having Test matches against Tier One nations.“We were allocated test matches to play in the eight nations. That would have been a wonderful tournament to be a part of, not only this year but for the future,” said Joseph.ADVERTISEMENT“It would give our players the much needed experience they need to develop their game and test it … against some of the best teams in the world.”Japan’s Top League domestic competition was cancelled earlier this year because of the pandemic, meaning most Japanese players have barely played competitive rugby in the past year.Joseph added that the team’s inability to train extensively was another reason to cancel their remaining Tests.“The right decision has been made. We still have plenty of time to prepare ourselves for the next World Cup,” said Joseph.ADVERTISEMENT“I hope the situation gets better in Japan and we can start looking forward to next season.”RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The Kannai Blade Residence – so called because its facades are intersected with thin, bladelike concrete fins – has been designed by the Japanese architectural studio Key Corporation Inc. It sits on a corner site within a 5-minute walk of the well-connected Yokohama Kannai Train Station, not far from central Tokyo.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoSave this picture!Diagram 01Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe new 11-storey housing block replaces the 4-storey post-war office building known as “Furocho 2-chome Daiichi Kyodo Building.” The original building was designed by Miyauchi Architects in a style typical of the time, built in concrete, characteristically robust and low-rise, functioning as a firebreak. During WWII, much of Yokohama City was razed to the ground leading to the government-sponsored reconstruction efforts to comply with strict fire regulations. The same area is currently facing rapid changes through Private Finance Initiative, PFI, funded redevelopment. The site across the street from the Kannai Blade Residence will accommodate the new Yokohama United Arena, remodeled after the Yokohama Cultural Gymnasium (built in time for 1964 Tokyo Olympics and demolished in 2020). In the vicinity,Save this picture!© Toshiyuki Yanoa new campus building for Kantou Gakuin University is nearing completion. This is being built on the site that used to accommodate Kunio Maekawa’s Cultural Educational Centre, built in 1974, now demolished after it was deemed that the structure was not compliant with today’s seismic standards. The Kannai Blade Residence consists of ninety-four privately-owned studio flats. The individual units are very small, with their floor areas ranging between 22m2 to 47m2. They are what the Japanese call ‘one-room-mansion’ suitable for single dwellers or young couples without children.Save this picture!Plans 02Because many of the post-war buildings still survive in this area, there is a uniformity rarely seen in other neighborhoods of urban centers in Japan. Their low-rise, horizontal concrete structures, solid yet open and accessible, are very distinctive and can easily be spotted amongst today’s high-rise towers. The corner buildings abutting large streets (functioning as firebreaks) are usually chamfered, further emphasizing the area’s spacious feel and unusual uniformity. Particular attention was therefore paid to design a characterful building to match the post-war buildings surrounding it. Our strategy was to emphasize the concrete floor slabs in order to amplify and echo the area’s horizontal linearity. We also used the paper-thin concrete fins (40mm in thickness) to break the monotony and introduce playfulness.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe vertical concrete panels have been added to the façade randomly, concealing the small units behind them. Panels, thin as they are, are unobtrusive, befitting the scale of the individual units. Each unit has a width of just 2.9 meters. The depth of panels vary between 200mm to 900mm, with some functioning as brise-soleil and some as dividing walls between different units, whilst others are more decorative, framing views of the city.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoIn Japan, balconies are almost obligatory for mansion blocks as a mean of incorporating escape ladders to avoid excessive internal staircases, allowing for more space for individual flats. This results in them looking formulaic and monotonous. The concrete fins are deliberately made not to reflect the internal structure. Thin calcium silicate boards are discreetly tucked away behind these fins. In case of emergencies, they can be pushed down easily and the residents can escape using the escape ladders installed on each floor.Save this picture!ElevationsThe new building is chamfered as many other corner buildings are in this area. We achieved this effect by extending the first floor slabs out of the façade then wrapping the fins around the corner of building. The concrete fins on the façade are made with Hybrid Prestressed Concrete or HPC. They have been developed and patented by the Japanese company HPC Okinawa in 2015. The panels used in this housing block have been manufactured by Kooge Concrete company in Tottori prefecture, south of Japan.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoBy using enmeshed carbon cables instead of the usual steel rods to reinforce concrete and by adding polypropylene fiber to strengthen the mixture, the panels can be made as thin as 40mm, as tall as 5 meters, and incredibly still be load-bearing. Currently, however, the Japanese building regulations do not permit the use of these panels structurally. We also create special sculptural pieces using HPC panels to light up the communal entrance area inside the building. We cast circular acrylic molds into the concrete panels and they light up like the night sky with stars. The generously-proportioned entrance area is also an added luxury not usually granted to ‘one-room mansion’ blocks in built areas such as Tokyo and Yokohama.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoOne unit on the top level of the residence is spacious with sky lights and extra bedrooms. All the flats have been decorated with a minimum palette of white, grey and black. Rooms are laid with timber flooring. Kitchen and utility spaces have been tucked away neatly along the entrance hallway and doors are made to slide over one another at corners to make more space and provide some form of privacy. As mentioned above, the Japanese mansion blocks tend to look very similar due to the requirement of the balconies on the façade. We took extra care to make sure that the boilers and air-conditioning units placed outside on the balconies (per the norm in Japan) as discreetly tucked away as possible. Handrails, exterior walls and the balcony ceilings have been painted black. We wanted to bring out the light grey colour of concrete.Save this picture!Diagram 02When you look at the entire building from the front elevation, these concrete fins appear as sharp as a Samurai’s sword cutting through the air. If you look at the buildings from the side, however, you can begin to appreciate the texture of the exposed concrete, which changes its appearance with the intensity of the light. Façade designs tend to reflect the interior structures but we wanted to experiment and play against such a norm so that the new building resonated with the post-war buildings in the area. The individual flats feel more open and connected with the outside world through the thin concrete panels, retaining a sense of scale that is both human and urban.

Three of the turnovers off the preseason Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year turned into points. The fourth pick came in the final seconds to seal the deal. Quarterback Max Duggan had a breakout game against Texas with 273 yards, two passing touchdowns, and a rushing touchdown. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.“It felt amazing,” safety Tre Moehrig said.  “We just all came out and played fast and triedto do our job, do our thing and came up with the four turnovers.” TCU had not produced a turnover in any conferencegames prior to the contest.Ehlinger finished 22-for-48 with 321 yards, two touchdowns and the four interceptions.On three different occasions, the Frogs forced the Longhorns to settle for a field goal after having a first down in the red zone.On the other side, quarterback Max Duggan caught fire for TCU in his fifth-consecutive start. The first-year signal caller finished 19-for-27 with 273 yards and two touchdowns and one interception. Max Duggan shined in his first career matchup with Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.“I knew he could do it.  Everybody knew he could do it,” Moehrig said about Duggan’s breakout game. “It just came with time.”Things did not start well for Duggan, though. After going 143 pass attempts to start the season without throwing an interception, the first-year signal caller missed receiver Jalen Reagor short, and the pass was picked off by Texas cornerback Brandon Jones.Just five plays later, linebacker Garrett Wallow read Ehlinger’s pass perfectly, intercepted it and brought it to the Longhorn 20-yard line.“One thing I said at the beginning of the season is Ijust want to do anything I can to help this team win,” Wallow said.  “I’m just focused on going out there andplaying my heart out for everybody.”The pick was the first of Wallow’s career.  He also added nine tackles in the game.TCU was unable to reach the endzone after the pick, but a 33-yard field goal by kicker Jonathon Song tied the game at 3 with 3:43 left in the first quarter.Duggan would respond the next time the Frogs had the ball, leading TCU on a nine-play, 63-yard touchdown drive capped with a 24-yard dime from Duggan to tight end Pro Wells to give TCU an early lead.The catch was just the eighth of the season for Wells, but a team-high four of those have been for touchdowns.Texas would respond almost immediately with a 47-yard touchdown pass from Ehlinger to receiver Devin Duvernay to tie the game at 10.Near the end of the first half, Texas would re-take the lead on what has been one of TCU’s achilles heels all year—a wheel route. The 17-yard pass from Ehlinger to Ingram put Texas up 17-10 with just 1:11 left to go in the half.TCU went into the locker room just down three points after kicker Griffin Kell nailed a 52-yard field goal attempt at the buzzer, breaking his previous career-high of 35 yards. Near the end of the third quarter, the Frogs would explode offensively, scoring twice in just over three minutes. The first was a one-yard rush from Sewo Olonilua, which was instigated by a 51-yard pass to receiver Taye Barber to the Texas 4-yard line. Taye Barber (4) lead the Frogs with 94 yards against the Longhorns. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Barber would finish with a team-high 94 yards on theday in just his fourth game played this season.“I told them, ‘If you want to be on the field, then make some plays,’ and some guys did that today,” Patterson said.Moments later, safety Ar’Darius Washington picked off Ehlinger for the second time on the day, followed by a 44-yard touchdown pass to a wide open Reagor on the next play to give TCU their first lead since the second quarter.On the last play of the third quarter, Moehrig snagged his third pick of the season and TCU’s third of the game as he was falling out of bounds.Though Texas put together a 12-play, 4:38 drive tocome within three late in the fourth, the Frogs followed with a 4:51 drive oftheir own, capped off by an 11-yard touchdown run by Duggan to put the nails inthe coffin.Duggan finished as the game’s leading rusher with 13 carries for 72 yards. He is averaging 74 yards per game on the ground in the last three contests.Entering the game, Duggan had completed 56 percent of his passes on the year. Against Texas, however, he completed 70 percent. “It’s just one ‘W,’ now we have to go on,” Patterson said.TCU will to looking to keep rolling on the road next as they play Oklahoma State on Saturday, Nov. 2.  Kickoff in Stillwater is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive yearslast_img read more

Nurses express doubts over use of extra cash

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Nurses express doubts over use of extra cashOn 18 May 2004 in Personnel Today The billions of pounds being pumped into the NHS to improve patient care andrecruit more nurses is having little effect on frontline services, according toa poll of 1,000 nurses. The survey by The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) showed that less than a thirdof nurses believe the extra £5.9bn in government funding given to the NHS inthe past year has made any difference to their working lives. Only 30 per cent believe the number of permanent nursing staff hasincreased, while 47 per cent said spending on agency staff has risen, and 52per cent thought the money was being used to employ more managers. The Government has stressed the importance of involving frontline clinicalstaff in decisions about where to target spending. But the survey showed thatthe overwhelming majority of nurses (80 per cent) had little or no involvementin deciding where new investment was spent. General secretary of the RCN, Dr Beverly Malone, said that nurses shouldplay an invaluable role in ensuring the money was used to make a genuinedifference to patients. “Enabling our leadership to be fully utilised will mean thatimprovements will be seen right across the health service,” Malone said. Andrew McNeilis, commercial director at HR consultancy Hudson, defendedagency nursing. He said that flexible labour was essential to fill gaps whenstaff were off sick or needed to go on training courses. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
