GVC supports Covid-19 relief efforts with new tennis tournament Tags: Charitable Gaming GVC Holdings has joined forces with former tennis professional Janko Tipsarevic to launch a new tennis tournament to help raise funds for international novel coronavirus (Covid-19) relief efforts.The GVC Global Foundation Eastern European Championship begins today (16 June) at the Tipsarevic Academy in Belgrade and will run for six weeks through to 23 July.GVC will make an initial donation of €20,000 (£17,869/$22,562), in addition to €100 for each ace served during the finals week. Donations from the public and tennis community will also be encouraged throughout the competition.Early stages of the competition will feature 100 players including Andrey Rublev, Nikoloz Basilashvili and Kristina Mladenovic in the men’s event, as well as the likes of Kristina Mladenovic, Polona Hercog and Patricia Maria Tig in the women’s contest, with a further top 20 wildcards also set to be announced.GVC will support the championship through its GVC Global Foundation initiative.“The GVC Foundation aims to support and promote a variety of good causes through our association with sport,” GVC’s director of regulatory affairs and trustee of the GVC Global Foundation, Martin Lycka, said.“At this moment there is no greater challenge than tackling the global pandemic and we are proud to be raising funds to support those on the frontline.”Tipsarevic added: “What began as a way to keep local players sharp during the pandemic has taken on a life of its own and it is incredible that it has turned into such a big event. Given the circumstances, it seems entirely fitting that we can use the tournament to do our bit and support Covd-19 relief.”Meanwhile, sports data and integrity solutions provider Sportradar has agreed a deal with the Tipsarevic Tennis Academy to provide a range of live tennis content solutions directly from the event.The agreement includes data production for all matches using data collection software, which the umpire will use to score matches and transmit data back to Sportradar.Sportradar will also provide support in the form of an audio visual offering, as well as distribute the event for television worldwide and deliver coverage of four matches each day of the week.Sportradar’s managing director sport partnerships, David Lampitt, said: “We’re delighted to be involved in an event of this size and profile as we continue to facilitate the return of live sport. And we’re particularly pleased to have the chance to be involved in a combined event involving top players from both the men’s and women’s Tours.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Addresscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter CSR 16th June 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Social responsibility Sports betting CSRlast_img read more

The site is located on a terraced mountain hill that was developed as a residential land. The family is consisted of a married couple and a child. We considered a new way of architecture on the site condition, where views are open towards the north and the ground level is one meter higher than the road level. Save this picture!© Koji Fujii / Nacasa & Partners The relationship is as if the site’s natural environment and the architecture coexist at the same time. The architecture has become a part of the whole landscape of undivided environment, not simply thinking about connection to the surroundings from the cut off opening in walls.This time, we came up with a living form that accepts the outside environment such as surface of the terraced land, surrounding neighboring houses’ fences and walls, residences that sit along the slope and far beyond mountains. The architectural principle is not a division from the land with a wall, but an interior that is an extension of the outside and connection of the surface like a pit dwelling that is undivided from the land. In concrete, six types of floor levels including a round floor that is created by digging the surface are connected with a concrete cylinder core at the center. Furthermore, delicate and multiple branch-like columns that support the slightly floating boxes produce various one-room spaces. Save this picture!AxonEnvironment and architecture create new extensive relationship by connecting surfaces. The territory is undefined in the space in a body sense. I think that is more natural relationship of an architecture standing in a landscape.Project gallerySee allShow lessShortlist Announced to Design Moscow’s First Park in 50 YearsArchitecture NewsBritish Council Launches Open Call for First Ever Exhibition of Antarctica ArchitectureArchitecture News Share Pit House / UID Architects General Contractor: CopyAbout this officeUID ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOkayamaHousesJapanPublished on June 19, 2013Cite: “Pit House / UID Architects” 19 Jun 2013.

The project brief called for the re-design of an inner city warehouse conversion in Camperdown, for a couple seeking a minimalist lifestyle with an interior to match. The clients, who work in design-related disciplines, sought to shed their home of unimportant accumulation and create a space free of clutter and visual pollution. Conceived of as a “concrete bunker”, the shell of the apartment has been informed by the designer’s penchant for Brutalist architecture. The principal intent was the creation of a pared back, geometric interior and a celebration of the neighborhood’s industrial heritage.Save this picture!© Kat LuThe west-facing open plan apartment features a custom kitchen and a mezzanine bedroom, which overlooks the living room space and a small terrace. The loft is flooded with light from a full height, glazed wall, counterbalancing the interior mood, which is intentionally dark and brooding. All interior elements have been created as “raw and extruded concrete monoliths”, as seen in the fluted kitchen joinery, curved ceiling forms, and the cement-rendered bathroom. A homely “mid-century” touch has been introduced in the form of film-faced plywood and American Oak joinery, brass accents, and statement lighting. The furniture selection features geometric forms and a muted palette, underscoring the overall concept. Save this picture!© Kat LuSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kat LuThis interior eschews the cliched “industrial” warehouse aesthetic and ubiquitous “Sydney” design approach (read: natural/seaside/light, bright and airy), offering a fresh, yet site-specific take on the warehouse conversion category. Great lengths were taken to synthesize client direction and the specificity of the brief with a bold design approach. As a result, de-materialization is at the core of the concept, and all elements have been reduced to their bare essentials, resulting in a utilitarian, cave-like sanctuary that is also intimate, light-filled and homely.Save this picture!© Kat LuEach design decision has been rooted in a practice of sustainability, resulting in a materials palette that is environmentally responsible (eg VOC-free finishes, strict use of FSC timbers, reduced use of chrome and cement) paired with a construction process that was streamlined to minimize waste. Given the project context of a residential warehouse conversion, it would have been natural to emulate any of the well-articulated examples in the genre. However, the designer has chosen to ignore the whims of a trend, opting for a unique approach that perfectly underscores the clients’ vision.Save this picture!© Kat LuDesign innovation is evident in the skillful reduction of the functional components into simple geometric forms that are evocative. In addition, although the brief was a concrete box – remarkably very little cement has been used in its creation. The “solid” concrete elements are Glass Reinforced Cement (GRC) – which has far less weight and cement than traditional concrete techniques – and the “concrete finish”, has been achieved with a French Wash Porter’s Paint. This interior offers a probing look at the level of creativity and execution that can be achieved within a particularly restrained and pragmatic design approach.Save this picture!© Kat LuProject gallerySee allShow lessMemorial To Victims Of Violence / Gaeta-Springall ArquitectosSelected ProjectsAnne Taylor on How Design Education Can Transform Our SchoolsArticlesProject locationAddress:Camperdown NSW 2050, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Income to army charities falls after ‘admirable performance’ during recession

first_imgIncome to army charities falls after ‘admirable performance’ during recession Howard Lake | 24 April 2014 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. 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. Advertisement Having achieved double-digit growth during some of the worst years of the economic downturn, income to charities that support British soldiers fell by 4.2 per cent last year.Data released by Charity Financials shows that combined income for the 11 charities listed on the British Army’s website had a combined income of £296.4m in 2012/13, compared to £309.6m in 2011.12.Six of the 11 charities have seen a drop income with Help for Heroes being the biggest losers (down by £6m), followed by ABF the Soldier’s Charity (£3.7 million) and the Royal British Legion (3.4 million).Charity Financials says older data shows that army charities “performed remarkably well during the recession. While most charities saw their incomes fall following the financial crisis and are only now recovering, the army charities experienced income rises of 13.8 per cent, 10.9 per cent and 9.7 per cent between 2008/09 and 2011/12.”Much of this growth was driven by the performance of Help for Heroes, which saw its income leap from £14.6 million in 2008/09 to £46.6 million in 2011/12. But even without the success of Help for Heroes, all the other army charities still recorded combined annual growth each year since 2005/06.Incomes for the 11 army charities are:Royal British Legion – £132.8mSSAFA – £50.4mHelp for Heroes – £40.6mBlind Veterans UK – £24.2mCombat Stress – £15.6mABF the Soldiers Charity – £13.2mSkill Force Development – £8.1mEarl Haig Fund Scotland – £5.1mBLESMA – £4.8m)uk4u – Thanks! – £0.3mScottish Veterans’ Residences – £0.3m.

Finger pointed at US interposition force in the 2004 death of journalist Ricardo Ortega

first_imgNews HaïtiAmericas Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti November 14, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Haïti Organisation An official Haitian investigation has officially blamed the foreign interposition force present in Haiti after the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on 29 February 2004 for the murder of Ricardo Ortega of the privately-owned Spanish TV channel Antena 3.The conclusions of Haitian judge, Bernard Saint-Vil, were released by the Spanish journalist’s parents, José Luis Ortega and Charo Fernández, after their visit to Haiti, on 9 May 2008.Ortega was shot dead in Port-au-Prince on 7 March 2004, before the arrival in the country of the UN Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (Minustah) on 1st June 2004. Reporters Without Borders joins with the family in asking for the investigation to be continued at an international level.“The conclusions of the judge, Bernard Saint-Vil, invalidate the theory, which has long been circulated, that the bullets which fatally wounded Ricardo Ortega came from the supporters of Jean-Bertrand Aristide, during demonstrations after he was ousted from power,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Considering the events go back some time, the circumstances of the death and the implication of a foreign military force, the continuation of the investigation at an international level and in particular in the United States, might be difficult. That is why we agree with the request of Ricardo Ortega’s parents for the Spanish government to mobilise the governments of countries represented in the interim force at the time of the killing”, it added. The parents of Spanish TV journalist Ricardo Ortega, of Antena 3, shot dead on 7 March 2004, have released the conclusion of a Haitian investigation blaming the US interposition force for his death. Reporters Without Borders joins the family in calling for the probe to continue at an international level. center_img to go further Ortega had arrived in Haiti as special correspondent for Antena 3 on 28 February 2004, one day before the departure of Jean-Bertrand Aristide. He was fatally wounded during fighting between supporters and opponents of the ousted president on 7 March, when he and his interpreter went to the aid of an American colleague who had been wounded in crossfire. Ortega was hit in the body as he left the patio of a building where he had taken refuge and was crossing the road. He was pronounced dead soon after his arrival at the Canapé-Vert hospital. His interpreter was also killed. The investigation at first focused on armed supporters of Jean-Bertrand Aristide but witness accounts gathered by a journalist colleague on Antena 3, Jesús Martín, who was sent to Haiti six months later, confirmed the thesis that the shooting had come from US troops “without anything happening that could have been interpreted at the time as a threat”, the family said in a statement.

MORALES | PHOTOGRAPHY BY TAVO OLMOS Published on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 | 12:54 pm On Saturday June 22, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, join the City of Pasadena as it marks its 127th birthday and Pasadena’s beloved landmark, the Colorado Street Bridge, commemorates its 100th anniversary with the special participation of the Pasadena Museum of History.Jeannette Bovard, media consultant for Pasadena Museum of History, explains the tie-in of the bridge’s anniversary and the City’s birthday: “We are using the Colorado Street Bridge’s milestone to set the theme for this year’s birthday festivities, kicking off the centennial celebrations with this party and also utilizing the “bridging” concept to explore all the region’s physical bridges as well as links to other facets of this diverse community.”The celebrations will include a gala cake cutting ceremony with Mayor Bogaard and other dignitaries at 3:00 pm, followed by cake for all courtesy of Vons/Pavilions.Entertainment will be a whole day affair with the following events:– The Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association will keep party-goers on their toes with a variety of dances and demonstrations. Join in or sit, relax, and enjoy the show!– History “Pods” have become a defining and much-anticipated feature of Happy Birthday Pasadena events. This year we celebrate Pasadena’s physical bridges and use the concept of bridging to explore other facets of our City’s vibrant lifestyle:• Bridges to Community – Meet Pasadena’s community of Bloggers! They are our eyes and ears; they share Pasadena-related thoughts, images, inspirations, and news from unique perspectives. Here’s your chance to chat with them in person.• Bridges to Exploration – From Pasadena to Mars and beyond: JPL representatives will amaze, enlighten, and inspire you!• Bridges to Health – Did you know that many early Pasadena settlers came here seeking health cures? Our amazing medical history comes to life in this presentation.• Bridges to History – Our iconic landmark, the Colorado Street Bridge, is 100 years old in 2013. Pasadena Heritage will preside over a display that celebrates this milestone and all of our City’s physical bridges.• Bridges to Imagination – Kidspace Children’s Museum and Side Street Projects will keep youngsters fully engaged in imaginative, hands-on projects. Meanwhile, Gold Bug, Old Pasadena’s neo-Victorian emporium, will amuse, engage, and delight the imagaination and senses of visitors of all ages.• Bridges to Understanding – The Pasadena Sister Cities Committee will feature details about our special relationships with Ludwigshafen, Germany; Mishima, Japan; Jarvenpaa, Finland; Vanadzor, Armenia; and Xicheng District, Beijing, China.– “World’s Smallest Motor” – In 1959 famed CalTech physicist Dr. Richard Feynman offered a $1,000 prize to anyone able to make an operating electric motor only 1/64th of an inch cubed (about the size of a speck of sand). Pasadena’s William McLellan, a CalTech graduate and miniaturization specialist, successfully claimed the prize just a year later, effectively ushering in the field of nanotechnology. The McLellan family recently donated the tiny motor to PMH, and we are presenting in in a special display — mounted under a microscope — in the Archives on this celebratory afternoon.For the children’s activities, three outstanding organizations will engage youngsters in the art, innovation and science of bridges:– Kidspace Children’s Museum will host a hands-on bridge-building workshop with different types of materials to discover which work well, which do not, which structures are more successful and why. A weight test will let us see if our bridges could accommodate passengers safely. Have fun while learning the physics behind bridges – why certain structures work and why some bridges collapse! Our youngest visitors will join the fun, building bridges with blocks.– Side Street Projects will invite children and family members to create an imaginative bridge from the perspective of the surrounding wildlife, using biodegradable materials. Use your imagination! How would a fish design a bridge? What would a butterfly do? Using the format of a suspension bridge, kids will create a combination 2-D/3-D project inspired by the Arroyo Secco wildlife below the Colorado Street Bridge.– We will present three storytelling productions on the Museum Stage at 1:30 pm– all around our theme of ‘bridges.” WTS performances blend storytelling and audience participatory theatre to bring world folklore, fairy tales, literature, legends, and mythology to joyful life.It’s going to be a grand day of celebrating, but with a host of educational activities and fun entertainment as well. In what will most surely be a grand day for the whole City of Pasadena, everyone is urged to join and not miss this once a year celebration.If all the above isn’t enough to entice you, keep in mind that admission and parking is free.To learn more about the celebrations, visit http://www.pasadenahistory.org/programs_events/HappyBirthdayPasadena125.html.
