By late March, 37 of the 39 venues had reopened, with more than 80% of gaming tables taking bets, though with strict rules on social distancing and all staff and patrons required to wear masks. However, despite the resumption of activities, visitor numbers remained low with travel limited.A number of regional airlines, as well as international carriers such as Vietnam Airlines, Philippines Airlines and South Korea’s Jeju Air all cancelled flights to and from the island.Year-to-date revenue for the first three months of the year came to MOP30.49bn, down 60.0% year-on-year.In 2019, Macau casinos brought in MOP292.46bn, 3.4% less than in 2018.

Bonuses: A new Age

first_imgTraditionally bonuses have been one of our industry’s most reliable engagement and retention tools. In recent years some industry commentators have argued that their effectiveness has lessened because they tend to attract low-value traffic and push down margins, while RG concerns have seen restrictions introduced in some regulated markets.However, we are now operating in a new ‘data driven’ age and this session will look at how we can manage and consume our customers’ data in real time and how this can be leveraged to create dynamic and personalised bonuses.In this webinar, we will discuss how they can help operators maximise the value of their bonus offerings, keep players engaged, increase retention rates and eventually generate substantial revenue uplifts through the use of data, all the time remaining compliant with the necessary regulations.This webinar is sponsored by Solitics Topics: Uncategorized In this webinar, we will discuss how operators can maximise the value of their bonus offerings, keep players engaged, increase retention rates and eventually generate substantial revenue uplifts through the use of data, all the time remaining compliant with the necessary regulations.

This house for vacations is located at the border of a small historical village, which is still quite good preserved. There is a beautiful view over the lake and towards the mountains. It’s only possible to reach the house by foot. There isn’t a street leading close to the site, what made the construction more difficult. Save this picture!The house defines the border of the historical village, so we created a sort of a boundary wall where you can live inside. It was important to get the permission for a flat roof (what usually is impossible in a historical area) to create a simple cube like a wall. Even as important as the form was to use the same material (natural stones) the walls in this area are made with. Save this picture!Save this picture!Without the old roof we obtained a new abstract form, which is modern and at the same time very old. The walls haven’t been changed in any way, it was like this long time before, but it was invisible. Save this picture!The house is very small and there wasn’t enough space to integrate also the bathroom in the existing volume. So it’s hidden underneath the ground to be able to leave the appearance of the house like it was before. Save this picture!In the inside there were a lot of different levels which gave the character of the house. They have been maintained and connected by a lot of small stairs. The windows have been placed at the inside or the outside of the walls, so depending the point of view some are visible and some are not, they seems not to be at all.

New York: Mass movement builds against Amazon HQ2

first_imgCorporate behemoth Amazon announced in September 2017 it would build a second headquarters (HQ2) in whichever U.S. city offered it the best deal. After a year of city and state politicians across the country wooing the company with increasingly larger promises of tax breaks and handouts, New Yorkers found out last November that they had unfortunately won the bid for this notoriously anti-worker, union-busting corporation.However, New York City is a union town with a strong protest history and culture. Despite the efforts of Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to cut a backroom deal with Amazon, worth nearly $3 billion in corporate welfare, city residents are making their voices heard, as they did at the City Council meeting on Jan. 30. Their message was clear: Amazon is not welcome here.It was the second in a series of meetings that the NYC City Council has called in order to talk with Amazon representatives and review the deal in which they did not have a say. Although there is no official public comments section in Council proceedings, these meetings have become a target of the mass movement because they offer a rare opportunity, in an extremely undemocratic process, to show Amazon directly that the company is not welcome.Some City Council members had strong words for Amazon, but this was undoubtedly due to mounting pressure from below. Before the meeting began, a rally was held by a number of groups representing different aspects of the struggle, from frontline communities in Queens to tech workers and college students in other boroughs. Several unions attended, although not all were there to protest. The Building and Construction Trades, which Amazon has said it will work with on the construction of HQ2, showed up to support the corporation. However, the Department Store Union (RWDSU) and Teamsters Joint Council 16 spoke against the company receiving corporate welfare and demanded that Amazon allow its workers to be unionized.Fund people’s needs, not Amazon!Throughout the rally, several issues were raised in protest. These include the role Amazon would play in displacing Queens residents and further gentrifying New York City like the company did in Seattle; the company’s contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to develop facial recognition technology; and horrific working conditions in its fulfillment centers. Protesters also proposed a number of things the $3 billion in tax breaks and handouts to Amazon could be spent on to improve conditions for NYC residents, including affordable housing, repairing the crumbling subway system and reducing tuition costs in the City University of New York system. After the rally, protesters packed the City Council chamber. When the first representative from Amazon spoke and said that New Yorkers would benefit from Amazon, two banners were dropped. One read, “Amazon delivers lies” and the other said, “Amazon fuels ICE deportations.”  Protesters continued to hold up signs with the same slogans each time a company representative spoke. The Jan. 30 protest was a clear sign that there is a growing mass movement in New York City against the Amazon deal. This monstrous $3 billion giveaway, combined with undemocratic city planning, are bringing together a diverse array of groups in a common struggle.Amazon executives are definitely feeling the heat. Over the last several weeks, the corporation has conducted a slick public relations campaign to convince New Yorkers of its lies. Residents in and around Queens have received multiple pieces of mail telling them about how they will benefit from HQ2. But Amazon’s propaganda is all lies — and the people of New York are seeing through them.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sen. Stabenow Outlines Priorities for the Senate Ag Committee

Stabenow Outlines Priorities for the Senate Ag Committee Audio Playerhttps://hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Stabenow-Outlines-Priorities-For-Senate-Ag-Committee.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) will soon be returning to her former position as Chair of the Senate Ag Committee, and she’s not wasting any time.Stabenow has already been in contact with Ranking Member John Boozeman (R-Ark.) to address agriculture’s challenges, particularly on trade.“I’ve talked with the new U.S. Trade Rep that has been nominated—I’m confident they are committed to a stable, open trade policy,” said Stabenow. “They understand we’re in a global economy. They understand agriculture needs trade, needs markets. I feel confident moving forward even though there’s a lot of work to do that will be able to stabilize and create a more consistent trading solution.”Additionally, Stabenow hopes to provide agriculture with more certainty, stability, and finding avenues to grow.“Frankly, government shouldn’t be in the business of deciding what to plant and who’s profitable, which unfortunately has been happening in the last four years,” she said. “We’ve seen more than $50 billion in aid in ad hoc payments replace markets as the major driver of farm profitability—we can’t sustain that. I know our farmers don’t want that, and I expect a different approach under the Biden administration.”Another priority of the committee under the Biden administration is combatting the climate crisis. Stabenow expects that the administration will recognize what agriculture is already doing and to make any programs producer-friendly and flexible.“When we look at the framework for how we could create a voluntary carbon market and a new revenue source which is very doable, I hope we can move forward quickly to begin to get things in place,” said Stabenow. “We have a bipartisan framework—the Growing Climate Solutions Act I’m authoring with Sen. Mike Braun, my friend from Indiana.”Stabenow’s final priority is preparing for the 2023 Farm Bill.“We’re going to be spending a lot of time looking at the effectiveness of what we’ve done and how we can expand on that. Or if it hasn’t worked, then we shouldn’t do it.”Stabenow added that Sec. Tom Vilsack has a vision to “get agriculture back on track” when he returns to his former post at USDA.Sen. Stabenow made her remarks during the opening session of the Michigan Agri-Business Association’s Winter Conference.

Media commission chief urged to resign after allegations of political control

first_img ZimbabweAfrica News ZimbabweAfrica News Reports RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today called on Tafataona Mahoso to step down as head of the Media and Information Commission (MIC), which supervises the news media in Zimbabwe, after a journalist who resigned from its board, Jonathan Maphenduka, alleged that Mahoso takes orders from his political bosses.In a written statement to the high court, Maphenduka claimed that the board originally agreed to let the banned independent newspaper, the Daily News, register with the MIC and thereby allow it to resume publishing, but finally bowed to pressure from the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) and reversed this decision.“The MIC’s loyalty to the regime was already obvious but now there is proof that it is under the government’s direct political control,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Its members, who perhaps still laboured under the illusion of its independence, should publicly acknowledge this state of affairs and dissociate themselves. And now he has been unmasked, Mahoso must go.”The representative of Zimbabwe’s journalists on the MIC board until he resigned on 18 August, Maphenduka made his allegations in an affidavit that was given to the Gill, Godlonton and Gerrans law firm on 22 November and was then submitted to Rita Makarau, the Harare high court judge tasked with ruling on the appeal that was filed in July by Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ), the publisher of the Daily News and Daily News on Sunday, after its request to be registered with the MIC was rejected.Maphenduka, who used to work for the Chronicle, a pro-government daily, said the ANZ’s request to be registered was initially accepted by the MIC board at a meeting on 16 June. But Mahoso then allegedly decided to postpone announcing this decision in order “to consult higher authorities.” Mahoso reportedly said there was a need to “clear up the confusion” in the ANZ’s organisational structure before taking a final decision. Despite his requests, Maphenduka was never able to get a copy of the minutes of the 16 June meeting.At a meeting two days later, the MIC board members were asked to approve the minutes of the 16 June meeting although Maphenduka, at least, had not received them. Mahoso and MIC legal adviser Daphne Tomana then asked them to reverse the 16 June decision and refuse to register the ANZ. “I am convinced, however, that the approach and the eventual decision resulting from it were largely political,” Maphenduka said in his affidavit.Maphenduka resigned from the MIC a month later in protest against the “ill-advised and counter-productive” manner in which it reached its decisions. Mahoso has responded with a statement denying that he ever receive Maphenduka’s resignation and accusing him of “bringing scandal” to the MIC because he “has an interest” in the ANZ.The allegations have stoked a controversy in Zimbabwe about the growing evidence that the MIC, which was supposed to be independent, is in fact directly dependent on the government. It has emerged, for example, that the salaries of the MIC board members are paid by the Department of State Enterprises and Indigenisation.A milestone in the drawn-out legal wrangle between the Daily News and the government was reached on 14 March when the supreme court quashed the MIC’s September 2003 ban on the newspaper, forcing the MIC to reconsider the ANZ’s request for a licence within 60 days. Although the deadline expired on 15 May, the MIC waited until 16 and 17 June to consider the ANZ’s request, along with a request from The Tribune, a weekly that was closed in June 2004.Mahoso refused to make any statement after these two days of deliberations, saying the newspapers would be told when a decision had been made, without explaining what he meant. The MIC finally announced its refusal to give the ANZ a licence on 18 July, as a result of which the ANC immediately challenged the decision before the Harare high court.The legal battle between the ANZ and the MIC has gone from court to court ever since the Daily News and its Sunday edition were banned in September 2003. In February 2004, the battle reached the supreme court, which took a year to issue a ruling. Because of enormous financial difficulties and its desire not to expose its journalists to the possibility of arrest, the Daily News decided to stop publishing pending a resolution of the dispute. to go further Reporters Without Borders today called on Tafataona Mahoso (photo) to step down as head of the Media and Information Commission (MIC), which supervises the news media in Zimbabwe, after a journalist who resigned from its board, Jonathan Maphenduka, alleged that Mahoso takes orders from his political bosses. “The MIC’s loyalty to the regime was already obvious but now there is proof that it is under the government’s direct political control,” the organisation said.

City Council OKs Pasadena Avenue Historic District Recommendation

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. The City Council authorized Mayor Victor Gordo to forward a recommendation to the State Historical Resources Commission in support of the listing of the Pasadena Avenue Historic District in the National Register of Historic Places.The Pasadena Avenue Historic District is under consideration by the State Historical Resources Commission (SHRC) for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in response to a registration form submitted on behalf of Pasadena Heritage.“Listing on the National Register will help preserve the aesthetics of a district that has been virtually unchanged since the 1950s,” Pasadena Heritage wrote in correspondence to the City Council.The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) routinely notifies local officials and property owners about nominations to the National Register in order to allow time for public comment before the SHRC holds a public hearing on the nomination.A report from the Planning and Community Development Department to the City Council describes the Pasadena Avenue Historic District, located in City Council District 6, as a “leafy residential district of single-family homes” that sits at the south-central or southwest edge of Pasadena and includes 11 resources in South Pasadena.The area is characterized by a high concentration of intact buildings from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These structures represent a broad, eclectic range of architectural styles that “clearly demonstrate the evolution of residential architecture in Southern California throughout the 1885 to 1938 period of significance,” the report said.The architectural styles are influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement centered in Pasadena at the turn of the last century, the report continued.A draft of the National Register of Historic Places Registration Form that will be submitted to the SHPO describes district as being organized around the north-south axis of Pasadena Avenue and includes multiple feeder streets to the east and west, comprising parts of Wigmore Drive, Hurlbut Street, Arlington Drive, West Glenarm Street, West State Street, and Columbia Street.The draft registration form lists 141 contributing properties – meaning those that are essential in the determination of the district’s eligibility to be listed in the National Register – and 52 properties that are non-contributing.The form also contains detailed descriptions and photographs of most of the contributing properties within the district.The Planning Department has listed a number of comments that it said have been the result of a detailed review. The City Council will finalize these comments before they are transmitted to the SHRC for consideration during the review of the nomination.These comments are supposed to be submitted to the SHRC no later than 15 days before the state commission meets to deliberate on the nomination.According to the Planning Department, the SHRC has scheduled a virtual meeting for April 30.
