In September, results published by Intralot showed a 55.5% year-on-year decline in revenue for the first half of 2020, after the B2B and B2C sides of the business faced difficulties caused by struggles in Turkey and Bulgaria.

This residence stands in a peaceful pastoral land,overlooking the Seto inland Sea of Hirosima prefecture, situated in the Chugoku district. I was asked to come up with a design that would blend in with the country-side landscape, so I presented the residence with a gable roof. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaRecommended ProductsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoFor the exterior walls, indoor walls, and ceilings, red cedar was selected for greatdurability. A lot of wood was used such as Japan cedar for the floors and cherry for the doors of built-in cabinets. 1.4m-wide eaves are established and the wood was initially planned to be used for the roof but it was changed to Galvalume steel plate to secure the durability. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaAn entrance was built in the approximate middle of the horizontally long building. On the south side facing the ocean, a terrace, living and dining room, semi open-style kitchen and bathroom are located, and the whole opening is glassed-in so that a view can be acquired from anywhere in the house. On the north side, there are rooms for three sons, an independent study room and a utility room beyond the hallway. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaOn the east side of the entrance are private space such as a master bedroom for the couple, a study room and a walk-in closet. A terrace was established between this east side and the public space of the west side. This terrace moderately keeps a good distance in between and gives an open feel to the residence. The japan cedar bean stated above, projects a shadow on the terrace’s wall and makes the indoor full of expressions. Moreover, a central heating system of PS was installed which warms the whole residence by emitted heat. Double-glazed glass was used for all the windows and insulating material was adequately filled to consider the indoor thermal environment.Save this picture!Courtesy of UID ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessMike Taylor: ‘Track Record’ LectureArticlesForest Corridor – Highway Noise Barrier / BREAD StudioArticles Share 2008 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/285010/air-flow-house-uid-architects Clipboard Air Flow House / UID ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAir Flow House / UID ArchitectsSave this picture!© Hiroshi UedaHouses•Hiroshima-shi, Japan “COPY” Projects Area:  279 m² Area:  279 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Japan “COPY” CopyAbout this officeUID ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshima-shiHousesJapanPublished on October 23, 2012Cite: “Air Flow House / UID Architects” 23 Oct 2012.

New book captures story of $1.3 billion grant giving in Ireland

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Tagged with: Funding Ireland Research / statistics AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 The Atlantic Philanthropies’ 30 years of grantmaking in the Republic of Ireland has been recorded in a new book published by the Foundation.The book tells the story of investments totalling $1.3 billion to help breathe life into university research, support major advances in human rights and underwrite joint efforts with government to improve services for children and older adults.As the book’s author, journalist Liam Collins notes, the “evidence” of Atlantic’s — and founder Chuck Feeney’s — work can be seen “on university campuses around the country; in programmes for the young, the old and the disadvantaged; as well as fundamental social change, such as children’s rights and marriage equality, which it helped to foster.”In addition to telling the history of the Foundation in Ireland, the book discusses outcomes from Atlantic’s grantmaking and lessons learned.  It also features a series of vignettes about several of its grantees and their accomplishments.  139 total views,  3 views today Advertisementcenter_img  140 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Howard Lake | 19 October 2017 | News New book captures story of $1.3 billion grant giving in Ireland The book says that while Irish people will instantly recognise both the name of the Foundation and its founder Charles F. (Chuck) Feeney, the sheer scale of their work over the last 30 years, more than 1,000 grants, totalling over €1 billion, has to an extent obscured the enormous contribution they have made in so many ways to this country. The evidence, the books says, is on university campuses around the country, and in programmes for the young, the old and the disadvantaged, as well as fundamental social change, such as children.The development of giving in Ireland, with some notable exceptions, is not a place where philanthropy is ingrained in the psyche of those who have the wealth to “make a difference,” the books states.“In Ireland, we have the highest number of people in Europe who give, but it is reactive giving”, says Éilis Murray, executive director of Philanthropy Ireland in the book.“It is not part of our DNA to give in a planned and strategic way,” she added.The book can be downloaded from the Foundation’s website.last_img read more

Venezuela launches the Petro

first_imgVenezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, center, announcing the petro.The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela opened the pre-sale of the petro on Feb. 20. The value of each petro is equivalent to the current price of a barrel of Venezuelan oil, about 60 U.S. dollars. On March 1, Nicolás Maduro, the president of Venezuela, said that the pre-sale had brought in more than $3 billion. Public sale of the petro is scheduled for March 20.Last December, when Maduro first announced the plan to launch the petro, he said it is meant to break the U.S.-imposed financial sanctions choking the people of Venezuela. The petro, he said, would help Venezuela “make financial transactions and overcome the financial blockade.” It will give Venezuela some monetary sovereignty, he added.Sanctions enacted over the last year by President Donald Trump’s administration have blocked Venezuela’s ability to move money through international banks, interfering with oil exports and even slowing the country’s payments of debt obligations. The sanctions have also blocked the Venezuelan people’s credit and debit cards, as Visa, Mastercard and the others are all controlled by U.S. banks.The petro is a challenge to the U.S.-dominated world banking system and the imperialist controls used for economic and political domination of developing countries.On the website www.elpetro.gob.ve, available in Spanish and English, the petro is called the first state-issued crypto asset, and a white paper released on the site gives more details.What does that mean?The petro is a digital token based on the new blockchain technology — using a digital, decentralized ledger of all transactions, called blocks, that are linked and cryptographically secured. Blockchains are secure by design and being decentralized means that no central authority (like the big banks) is needed to authorize the transaction. Blockchain technology means that the petro is removed from financial institution manipulation, including U.S.-imposed sanctions.Bitcoin is the best known blockchain-based token, though unlike the petro, it is not an asset-based token. According to the Swiss regulatory body FINMA, tokens can have three functions: payment tokens, utility tokens or asset tokens. (tinyurl.com/ydz3f24w)Payment tokens like bitcoin are best known and also called cryptocurrencies. Utility tokens are used to provide digital access to an application or service. Asset tokens are tied to assets, and are similar to bonds.The petro is an asset token tied to Venezuela’s oil and mineral reserves. “The Petro (PTR) will be a sovereign crypto asset backed by oil assets and issued by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on a blockchain platform,” the white paper says.Venezuela is also pursuing other ways to circumvent the U.S. sanctions war on their country. They have established trade with China, Russia and Turkey, using each of those countries’ national currency, not the dollar. They are seeking similar terms of trade with other countries. For example, during a recent trip to India, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said, “We don’t want to use the dollar at all,” reported the Times of India on March 13. “We want to import technology, food products, and medicines by paying (Indian) Rupees and they will pay us (Venezuela) not in dollars but in Rupees.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

West Texas Jazz Party returns

first_imgHome Local News Entertainment West Texas Jazz Party returns Musicians scheduled to perform at the 52nd edition of the West Texas Jazz Party include Randy Sandke, trumpet; Warren Vache, cornet; Dan Barrett and John Allred, both on trombone; Johnny Varro and Ted Rosenthal, both on piano; Chuck Redd on drums and vibes; Eddie Metz Jr., drums; Nicki Parrott, bass and vocals; Frank Tate on bass; Allan Vache and Engelbert Wrobel, both on clarinet; Eddie Erickson, guitar and vocals; and Rebecca Kilgore, guitar and vocals. Facebook “Then it came together to be one collaboration between both cities. This year, we’re going to have 14 (musicians) from all over the country,” Baker said.Baker, who is a trumpet player himself and chair of the visual and performing arts at Odessa College, said the jazz society likes to bring people in that local people don’t always get to see. There are some events during the year featuring local musicians.“That’s not a disparaging thing to say against local people and we all love to do that, but this would be a really important time to get a chance to see, hear, meet, talk to (and) chat with these professionals who do this all year long. They tour all over the world,” Baker said.In the last several years, there has been a Thursday night concert, but due to a lack of some grants the party has been scaled back to two nights.“There have been a lot of very loyal and generous jazz fans who have come to help support and make up some of that lost grant money,” Baker said.The jazz party was the subject of a documentary about two years ago. The party dates back to 1967 when Dr. O.A. Fulcher visited other jazz parties around the country and wanted to start one in the Permian Basin, he said.“It just became an annual tradition and some of the best names and some of the top players in the world started to hear about it and have come to perform here. We’ve just been able to keep it going since then. He’s the one who really kicked it off,” Baker said.The West Texas Jazz Society also awards a scholarship each year. Baker said auditions are held informally Saturday.“Local students perform in front of professionals and they will get feedback and a little almost private instruction. Then the artist will select a winner and we grant the Bucky Pizzarelli Jazz Scholarship. We grant that to a student each year — sometimes two,” he added.Scholarships go to students from Odessa College and the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.“It’s very special,” Baker said of the jazz party. “We’ve always said that this is Midland and Odessa’s best-kept secret. There is no way to describe how beautiful and how enjoyable this music is and what a treasure this American music is unless you experience it live.”People are sometimes a little afraid of the word jazz and have some preconceived notion of what it is. The jazz party focuses on traditional jazz, which Baker said is the bedrock of just about every other popular music form that came through the 20th century.“… I have always believed that everybody loves this music, they just don’t know about it yet. They haven’t experienced it this way. To be able to have a live experience with these musicians where you’re just literally a few feet from them, they’re talking to you from the stage. There’s a lot of interaction. It’s not a stuffy concert. It’s very informal and everyone always feels very welcome,” Baker said.Baker said the jazz society relies on the local community to turn out for it and keep supporting it so it can continue for another 52 years. The gathering switches back and forth between Odessa and Midland.Because so many educators are on the board, Baker said a younger audience has been introduced to jazz. Ector County Independent School District Executive Director of Fine Arts Mark Lyon has brought the music to middle school students in recent years with musicians he knows and has performed with.Dan Keast, an associate professor of music and music coordinator at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, has been on the jazz society board for 14 years. He has been the grant writer and coordinator of education for public schools. He recently took over writing grants.Keast said he got on the board as soon as he moved to the Permian Basin.“I’m an old time band director. I grew up 30 miles from the hometown of Glenn Miller in Iowa. I grew up loving swing — sweet swing as it’s referred to by most,” he said.He added that there are many interesting things in West Texas — an ice rink in the middle of a mall; the nation’s largest public school harp program; at one time a nationally ranked swimming team at UTPB; and possibly the longest running jazz party in the world.“These are all hidden gems of West Texas. These are the things I think speak to who we are as natives of the area. I think it’s just amazing the things we have to offer the public here in town; great things,” Keast said.Every time he hears the musicians play, even if he’s heard the piece before, it’s like it’s brand new.“I clear my weekend so I can just sit there and take it in absorb it. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. You live in the desert. You don’t always get live jazz all the time, so when you get it you binge,” Keast said.
