Clearly (fare rises) are not fantastic if you’re a commuter, but the government needs to save some money.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Scientific Games driven by lottery and social growth in Q1

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 8th May 2019 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Topics: Casino & games Finance Lottery Sports betting Social gaming Scientific Games has cited growth across its lottery and social businesses as key drivers of a year-on-year increase in revenue during the first quarter, while the supplier was also able to slash its net loss for the period.Revenue in the three months through to March 31, 2019, amounted to $837m (£640.6m/€746.8m), up from $812m in the corresponding quarter last year.Lottery revenue in Q1 was up by 12% year-on-year to $227m, primarily due to equipment hardware sales and new lottery contracts in Maryland and Kansas.Social gaming revenue also increased 22% to $118m as a result of the increased monetisation of paying players. Incidentally, Scientific Games has since launched an initial public offering for its SciPlay social gaming arm, which the supplier has said will help pay down debt.Digital revenue in Q1 remained level at $70m but the gaming segment, the main source of income for Scientific Games, saw revenue slip by 5% year-on-year to $422m.Meanwhile, Scientific Games was able to cut its total operating expenses from $763m in Q1 of 2018 to $714m this year, with savings across almost all areas of the business.Cost of services dipped from $122m to $133m, while cost of instant products fell from $70m to $67m and research and development costs from $54m to $49m. The supplier also noted a decline in depreciation, amortisation and impairments from $188m to $165m.The only areas where Scientific Games spent more were in terms of product sales, where costs increased from $105m to $107m, and selling, general and administrative expenses, which climbed from $172m to $186m.Higher revenue and lower costs allowed Scientific Games to post an improved operating income of $123m, up from $49m in Q1 last year, while the supplier also saw net loss shorten from $202m to $24m.Revenue growth also meant Scientific Games was able to report higher adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation, with this total up 3% from $320m to $328m.Barry Cottle, president and CEO of Scientific Games, said that he is proud of the Q1 performance, prising the supplier for continuing to build on its momentum.“We are focused on effectively operating our businesses, reducing costs and building upon the strong foundation for profitable growth that we see today,” Cottle said.“Last week, we successfully took SciPlay public as a new company, which accelerates our ability to pay down debt. All of these actions support our steadfast commitment to smartly grow our business, drive free cash flow and create meaningful value for our stakeholders.”Michael Quartieri, chief financial officer at Scientific Games, also highlighted the impact that the SciPlay IPO will have on the wider business, saying this will help to improve cash flow.“This quarter, we paid down $145m in debt and completed a major refinancing that lowered our borrowing costs and extended our debt maturities,” he said. “As a result of the SciPlay IPO, we expect to continue our deleveraging path and the efficient deployment of our resources to generate the returns needed to enhance our free cash flow.”center_img Casino & games Scientific Games has cited growth across its lottery and social businesses as key drivers of a year-on-year increase in revenue during the first quarter, while the supplier was also able to slash its net loss for the period.

Mediator reports on options to rebuild or replace Christchurch Cathedral

first_img Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Mediator reports on options to rebuild or replace Christchurch Cathedral Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Submit an Event Listing Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA A decision as to whether the earthquake damaged Christchurch Cathedral should be reinstated or replaced could be a step closer[Anglican Communion News Service] Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand could be reinstated after a mediator reported that restoration work could leave the re-built cathedral “indistinguishable” from the one that was all-but destroyed by the 2011 earthquake. But the report says that the “costly and risky project” would be significantly more expensive and take much longer to build than a contemporary replacement.There has been something of an impasse about which of the two options should be followed and the New Zealand government appointed lawyer Miriam Dean QC to mediate. Following the publication of her report, the Diocese of Christchurch said it would look again at the cost and feasibility of reinstating the cathedral. Further announcements are expected in April.The report by Miriam Dean stops short of endorsing either option but,Anglican Taonga reports, “crucially brings to the negotiating table parties that have been at loggerheads over the cathedral’s fate for more than three years.”“Miriam Dean QC and her team did an excellent job of assessing the positions of the parties involved and finding points of agreement. We are grateful for her hard work,” the Bishop of Christchurch, the Rt Revd Victoria Matthews, said, adding that the engineers and quantity surveyors involved were able to reach a large measure of high-level agreement on the engineering options and indicative costs of reinstating Christchurch Cathedral.The cost of reinstatement has been estimated at $105 million New Zealand Dollars (approximately £47.6 million GBP) and the work could be completed by 2022. In contrast, the cost of building a completely new cathedral has been estimated at costing up to $66 million New Zealand Dollars (approximately £30 million GBP).“The Anglican Diocese of Christchurch and the Church Property Trustees wish to move past the current deadlock to find a way forward to re-establish a cathedral in Cathedral Square,” Bishop Matthews said. “We want to support the city to move forward and we recognise the central importance of this building to many people in Christchurch.“It is the calling of the church to minister to people; to serve the lost, the last and the least. As the body of Christ we use buildings, but we don’t exist for the sake of bricks and mortar.“Therefore, comprehensive measures to ensure safety during deconstruction and reinstatement, and measures to achieve future safety including 100 per cent of the New Building Standard, as well as sufficient financial resources are essential.”Further confidential discussions will take place between the government and diocesan officials on the question of safety and cost before further announcements which are expected in April.In August 2013 a transitional “cardboard cathedral” was opened to serve the community of Christchurch.

StudiosOrlando-based Stars North has announced that Shout! Studios has acquired North American rights to its documentary feature Woman In Motion, the inspiring true story of how renowned Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols pioneered the NASA recruiting program to hire people of color and the first female astronauts for the space agency in the late 1970s and 1980s. Additionally, it chronicles her rise to fame and portrayal of Uhura on Star Trek, which marked one of the first non-stereotypical roles performed by an African-American actress. Her story has been praised for decades as one of the shining examples of the fight for gender and racial equality in America.Directed by Todd Thompson (The Highwaymen, PRE FAB!), the film chronicles how Nichols transformed her sci-fi television stardom into a real-life science career when, in 1977, she embarked on a campaign to bring diversity to NASA.  Nichols formed the company Women In Motion, Inc. and recruited more than 8,000 African American, Asian and Latino women and men for the agency. Notable astronauts that were part of the program included Fred Gregory, the first African American to command a Space Shuttle, Sally Ride, the first American female astronaut, and Ron McNair, the second African American in space, who perished in the Challenger accident. Nichelle and her program continue to influence the younger generation of astronauts as well, including Mae Jemison, the first female African American astronaut in space. Despite an uphill battle against a U.S. Government that was hesitant to let her get involved, Nichols persevered and is credited by NASA for turning it into one of the most diverse independent agencies in the United States Federal Government.In addition to Nichols, Woman In Motion features several notable celebrities, activists, scientists and astronauts including Neil deGrasse Tyson, George Takei, Pharrell Williams, Martin Luther King III, Al Sharpton, Vivica A. Fox, Walter Koenig, Rod Roddenberry, Michael Dorn, Guy Bluford, Charles Bolden, Ivor Dawson, Frederik Gregory and Benjamin Crump.“This is a great American story with incredible global impact,” said Thompson. “Nichelle Nichols strived to create a brighter future for us all by proclaiming that space exploration is for everyone. It’s a simple but very strong statement that opens doors and allows all humankind to boldly go.”“Nichelle Nichols not only was a trailblazer in Hollywood, she was a trailblazer for the future of our society,” said Ben Crump.  “She took the fight for Civil Rights, diversity and inclusion and gender equality to new frontiers with NASA which continue to serve America’s space program today. She was ahead of her time.”“With America in what is hopefully a transformational moment, there couldn’t be a better time for this joyous and deeply emotional celebration of the remarkable Nichelle Nichols and her work to bring diversity to our space program. This wonderful film will continue Nichelle’s mission by inspiring all children to reach for the stars, whatever those stars may be.” said Jordan Fields, Vice President of Acquisitions at Shout! Studios.A production of Stars North, Woman In Motion was produced by Thompson along with his Stars North partners Tim Franta and David Teek, with Nichelle Nichols as a co-producer and Benjamin Crump and Greg Galloway as executive producers. The film was written by Joe Millin, John McCall and Benjamin Crump. Curated By Media is packaging the film and Ben Crump will executive-produce for Brooklyn Media.Shout!

Just when the great construction crisis began, we still had the opportunity to work on two housing projects of different scales in a very poor area of the old town of Jaen: the district of San Juan. The first was already published by Plataforma Arquitectura and ArchDaily: http://www.plataformaarquitectura.cl/cl/02-89897/dos-viviendas-en-la-calle-soria-de-san-juan-de-jaen-brijuni-arquitectos so we just refer to it in parallel to what has been recently completed and published below.Save this picture!PlanThis second building occupies a strange and very unique plot of over six hundred square meters just two hundred meters away from the previous project. The area of the plot is ten times larger so we can develop an ambitious program of twelve houses around a large courtyard with swimming pool over two garage floors. The typologies range from one to four bedrooms and regulations require a great spatial complexity for each of the homes to have a main bedroom overlooking the courtyard so that the project is not considered interior housing, a typology that is not allowed. If the effort to provide great spatial intensity with double heights and lit and ventilated semi-buried plans is necessary, we wish for the colorful facade, challenging the monotonous and constructive regulations, and the existing rich chromatic diversity in the surroundings, to become the protagonist of such a unified but not individualized project where the sense of community overlaps with the individual houses and the economic effort is concentrated in a protective and efficient skin beyond the usual solutions that skimp on resources and turn modest housing in environments such as San Juan into real traps for their inhabitants.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe work of the architect, never the case of an exercise in personal or introspective style, abounds in the possibility of proposing scenarios of encounter for people living in buildings and thus making communities that are the first social circles, beyond the family, which should be raised as new scenarios of everyday life and society and of project of cohesion from the need referred to by Peter Singer as “to widen our circle.”Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaTo transcend the stereotypes of social and human relationships is something that architecture is required to do. In the case of San Juan neighborhood in the city of Jaén, we think that a largely poor population does not deserve an architecture of poor quality and that it was our duty to suggest architectures that speak of mixofilia in a place where there was, on the contrary, some mixophobia, in both directions. The fear of living with strangers or those who are different from us begins in the shared courtyard, in the neighbors yard or pool and is manifested in a spatially anf chromatically committed and purposeful architecture.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaProject gallerySee allShow lessHow 5 California Colleges Approach Campus DesignArticlesSalón Inés Pose / STGOSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Calle Llana de San Juan, 41, 23004 Jaén, Jaén, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Fourth medical school dean candidate emphasizes diversity, college integration

first_imgCondensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week printThe fourth dean candidate for TCU’s new medical school said she wants to place an emphasis on diversity and integrate other colleges on campus in the education of medical students.Dr. Anne Mosenthal, speaking at an open forum on Friday, said her idea to use colleges such as the Neeley School of Business would help provide students with skills they would not receive from a traditional medical school.“I’m very interested in the leadership and executive MBA programs that are going on at the Neeley School of Business,” Mosenthal said. “I think there’s opportunity for students to learn about other areas that are relevant to healthcare administration.”To encourage diversity in the classroom, Mosenthal proposed a scholarship for all entering students.“I think there should be a commitment to socio-economic diversity,” Mosenthal said. “I think that is a way to attract a diverse group of students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.”Susan Weeks, dean of the Harris College of Nursing and Health Science, said Mosenthal’s strong commitment to diversity is what made her stand out during the selection process.Mosenthal is currently the chair of the Department of Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School where she is a tenured professor of surgery.She received her Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and completed her medical training at Dartmouth College.

first_imgNews June 9, 2021 Find out more to go further Iran has just fallen three places in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 173rd out of 180 countries December 11, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information “The latest report by Javaid Rehman, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, confirms that the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the world’s worst countries as regards suppressing press freedom,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran-Afghanistan desk. “Twenty-one journalists are arbitrarily detained, unjustly convicted and denied their rights. They must be freed at once to allow them to spend the Nowruz festivities with their families, from whom they should never have been separated.” News There are 21 journalists and citizen-journalists, men and women, who are preparing to spend Iran’s traditional New Year celebration on 21 March in prison, instead of at home with their families, where they should be. After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Organisation This has been the case with Farangis Mazloom, the mother of Soheil Arabi, an imprisoned photo-journalist who was awarded the RSF Press Freedom Prize in the citizen-journalist category in 2017. An appeal court confirmed Mazloom’s 18-month prison sentence at the start of March. Alireza Alinejad, the brother of Masih Alinejad, a journalist living in self-imposed exile, has also had his eight-year jail sentence confirmed. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Iranian government, one of the world’s biggest jailers of journalists, to grant traditional Nowruz (Iranian New Year) pardons to the 21 journalists jailed in Iran, whose only crime was to do their duty to report the facts.
