Total revenue during the six months to December 31 from its Crown Digital division was down 65.6% year-on-year to Aus$65.9m.Crown’s digital division is a small part of its overall operation, which is primarily focused on its casino resorts in major cities across Australia and its Aspinall’s venue in London, but the operator also saw revenue decline elsewhere during the period.Australian resorts normalised revenue was at Aus$1.54bn, down 1.2% year-on-year, and while main floor gaming revenue was up by 0.9% to Aus$867.7m, VIP program play slipped 12.2% to Aus$19.9m.

I think we can all agree that this is not a desirable situation.”Organisers and officials are considering a long list of possible virus countermeasures that they hope will make it possible to hold the Games, even if a vaccine is not available.But enthusiasm for the Games appears to have waned in Japan, with polls over the summer finding just one in four Japanese people wanted to see them happen, and most backing either a further postponement or outright cancellation.Muto acknowledged the importance of public support for the event.“It’s not our intention to hold the Games without gaining understanding” of people in Japan, he said.If held at all, the final shape of the Games remains unclear, with questions including whether spectators will be allowed — including foreign visitors — yet to be resolved.

This family residence is designed on 0.25 acres of land property which is situated in one of the prestigious living areas in Vilnius (LT). The neighborhood is impressively fulfilled by natural context where pine forests are playing over city panoramas, colorful landscape views, and impressive sunsets. Moreover, the land plot is perfectly balanced in terms of world orientation, with river view on the south-west, while the neighborhood with the street is situated in north-east.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasResidents of this house are four-member family, very vibrant and modern living people with strong attitude and perception about modern architecture and minimalist design. Single story house concept was picked after intensively sketching. The architectural issue was not to spoil or distract existing environment which is the biggest value of the property. In this case, our design team was defined to design significantly simple shape integrated into the natural layout, with the focus on client budget and convenient functionality only. Planning structure during this project was not so tricky since existing landscape and property situation was not very challenging in terms of design issues.The residence is designed as extruded irregular rectangle 30×10 placed adjacent to the north border of the property and were stretched almost 30m along the street. With 2m cantilever eves on the opposite sides (south-north), with massive outside skylights for vegetation areas. These micro-green zones were planned on the north side to achieve visual privacy from the street. All living rooms, kitchen, and office studio are flooded with sunlight from massive panoramic openings on the south side which also opens access to roofed deck with an impressive view of the river. On the opposite side of the house, all utility premises like bathrooms, walk-in-robe, and other technical rooms were placed.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasInitially burnt cedar wood siding, based on old Japanese wood preservation “shou-sugi-ban” technology, was designed for the exterior, however, after few attempts to find a reliable supplier, black painted larch timber planks were selected. The complete architectural concept behind this family residence exterior and interior was inspired by two different wood using cultures Japan feat. Scandinavian – based on sustainability and convenience, to give up unnecessary and unimportant details. Concept based on the well-known idea “less is more” supplemented with strong contrast principal where black-white is oppositely playing in exterior-interior. The same concept is implemented in interior decoration where Scandinavian minimalistic style contrast is taking place behind custom furniture and finish materials cold-warm, light-dark, etc.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbačiauskasProject gallerySee allShow lessJesus College / Niall McLaughlin ArchitectsSelected ProjectsShangping Village Regeneration – Tai Fu Tai Mansion Area / 3andwich Design / He Wei …Selected Projects Share Paulius Petkus Save this picture!© Leonas Garbačiauskas+ 22Curated by María Francisca González Share Black Box House / PAO Architects Area:  203 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Vilnius, Lithuania Black Box House / PAO ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBlack Box House / PAO Architects Photographs:  Leonas Garbačiauskas Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Lead Architects: 2017 Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/888185/black-box-house-pao-architects Clipboard Lithuania ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/888185/black-box-house-pao-architects Clipboard Houses Architects: PAO Architects Area Area of this architecture project Manufacturers: GAMA windowslast_img read more

Journalist Robert Shemahamba released after ten days in custody, another journalist reported missing

first_img February 16, 2021 Find out more Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo RSF_en February 24, 2021 Find out more Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Help by sharing this information Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Receive email alerts Newscenter_img Organisation News News Reporters Without Borders learned with huge relief of the release today of Robert Shemahamba, director of Radio-Télévision Communautaire Mitumba (RTCM), broadcasting in Uvira in Sud-Kivu province. He had been held in custody by the National Intelligence Agency (ANR) since 17 December and was transferred on 24 December from Uvira to Bukavu.”I thank God and all those who lobbied for my release. The ten days in detention were a nightmare. In Uvira, I was put in a cell without any light. The conditions were poor and I had to protest and I was then transferred to Bukavu after a week. I think I will recover here for a while before going back to Uvira”, Shemahamba told Reporters Without Borders.Meanwhile, there is continuing uncertainty about the fate of another journalist, Dominique Kalonzo, correspondent in Uvira for privately-owned Radio Maendeleo, based in Bukavu. The journalist is being sought by the ANR in connection with the same case as Robert Shemahamba. After going into hiding for a week, he was reportedly involved in an altercation in Uvira yesterday with ANR agents sent to arrest him. He was injured and taken to a health centre in the city. According to information obtained by Journalist in danger (JED), a partner organisation of Reporters Without Borders in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kalonzo left the hospital in the company of two individuals who came to visit him. Nothing has been heard of him since. Neither his family nor his colleagues know if he has been abducted or is in hiding. ——————————————23.12.2010- Will journalist Robert Shemahamba have to spend Christmas in an intelligence service cell? Reporters Without Borders today strongly condemned the arbitrary imprisonment, since 17 December, of Robert Shemahamba, director of Radio-Télévision Communautaire Mitumba (RTCM) and correspondent for the Syfia Grands Lacs news agency.The journalist is being held in a cell at the National Intelligence Agency (ANR) in Uvira, Sud-Kivu province in the east of the country. To date, all efforts on the part of the worldwide press freedom organisation to get him released have been unsuccessful. Reporters Without Borders has since 20 December discussed the case several times with the administrator of the Uvira territory, Wabunga Singa, who told us that the journalist would be quickly freed – “in the next few hours”, he said – but this came to nothing. As for the provincial head of the ANR for Sud-Kivu, he is currently in Kinshasa and says he cannot intervene before returning to the east of the country. Since the authorities closest to this case are showing bad faith and inertia, promising to release the journalist but then doing nothing about it, we call on the minister of Communications and the Media, Lambert Mendé Omalanga, as well as the vice-Premier minister and minister of the Interior and Security, Adolphe Lumanu Mulenda Bwana N’Sefu, to take responsibility for the case. Getting this journalist released is urgent, first to put right an injustice done to him for almost a week, but also because his health is deteriorating. According to information gathered by Reporters Without Borders, Shemahamba is in a weakened state and is suffering from diarrhoea. His jailers refuse to allow him any visits or access to medical treatment. The journalist on 12 December presented the programme “Franc parler”’ during which guests criticised a speech to the nation by President Joseph Kabila and the construction of the Uvira stadium, which is being dealt with by the territory’s deputy administrator in charge of finance, Victor Chomachoma, who is suspected of corruption. The following day, Shemahamba was summoned by the high court in Uvira and questioned by the state prosecutor. He was accused by Victor Chomachoma of “insult and contempt of his person and that of the head of state”. He was summoned to the ANR on 17 December and placed in detention there. Journalist Dominique Kalonzo, correspondent in Uvira for privately-owned Radio Maendeleo based in Bukavu, is now being sought by the ANR for taking part in the same programme. He has been living in hiding since 17 December. His house has been searched and is now ringed by intelligence agents who have been threatening to arrest his wife if the journalist does not give himself up. Demonstrations were held last weekend in Uvira calling for the release of Shemahamba but the protestors were brutally dispersed by police. The Sud-Kivu section of the Congolese National Press Union (UNPC) has released a statement deploring the plight of Shemahamba and Kalonzo and calling for the release of the former. Three community radios in Uvira on 20 December started broadcasting special programmes to demonstrate their solidarity with Shemahamba, suspending normal broadcast to play songs with themes related to the journalist’s detention. Uvira journalists are planning a sit-in tomorrow outside the office of the administrator of the territory.Reporters Without Borders offers its support for all these local initiatives which should intensify pressure on those responsible for the journalist’s detention. to go further February 18, 2021 Find out more News Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders December 27, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist Robert Shemahamba released after ten days in custody, another journalist reported missing last_img read more

At the moment the main focus is on providing people with shelter. Approximately 350,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed so people are literally in the streets.“We’re also facing into the Monsoon season in about six weeks, so getting people at least covered is a huge priority. The rebuilding operation will take years, so at the moment a lot of our work is on providing tents and shelters,” Mr Dalton told the Limerick Post.He explained that the charity is also working to provide people in the affected areas with adequate water and sanitation, and hot food and cooking facilities.Mr Dalton added that the main focus of the charity’s work is on children, including child protection, and the Nepalese team is assisting in the reunification of families and protecting children from the ongoing problem of child trafficking in Northern India and Nepal.Plan International is also trying to provide children in the affected areas with some normality by opening up schools.“All of the schools in Nepal will be closed until May 15, but in the affected areas the schools have been destroyed. We’re trying to open up educational spaces to get the children back learning, get them back into a routine and spending time with their friends.

Donna Hartley is set to be featured as keynote speaker during the event, which will also feature a silent auction, a heart-healthy lunch and more involving the Go Red for Women campaign.“I’m excited,” Hartley said over the phone Monday.The annual event aims to raise awareness toward preventable heart health issues, and raise money for the American Heart Association.Individual tickets are available for $50 at PermianBasinGoRed.heart.org. Group tables and sponsorship opportunities are also available.Hartley is a former Miss Hawaii and actress who has survived cancer and open-heart surgery.“I love to do these because, being a heart survivor, I probably had only two weeks to live or I would’ve had a heart attack,” Hartley said. “So I want other people to become aware, so they check their heart before it gets to that crisis stage.”Hartley said she’s been a part of more than two dozen American Heart Association events.“It’s educational, along with people having a great time, seeing other friends, raising money, being aware, and passing it down from generation to generation to generation,” Hartley said.“It really is a valuable couple of hours. It could save your life, so that’s how valuable it is.”American Heart Association regional communications director Alex Bravata echoed Hartley’s description off the event.“It’s just a good way for women to connect and to learn more about their health,” she said.Bravata said money raised at the event will go toward the American Heart Association’s mission, which she said includes funding research and grants along with awareness-raising ventures.“Our main goal is to raise awareness about women’s heart health, because heart disease does kill one in three women, and I think a lot of people don’t realize that,” Bravata said.“Our goal is really just to raise awareness about heart disease in women, and in men. I think when they come to these events, they can expect some educational advice from speakers, and things like that. And we also want it to be a celebration as far as women coming together.”More Information Foolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakeVirgin Coco MojitoPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay WhatsApp Facebook By admin – April 7, 2018 Local News Go Red for Women Luncheon set for Odessa Twitter Home Local News Go Red for Women Luncheon set for Odessa OC employee of the year always learning ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Pinterest Permian Basin Go Red.Permian Basin Go Red on Facebook.last_img read more
