Irish Finance Minister dismisses fears over lottery betting Legal & compliance The Irish Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe, has rejected claims that lottery betting could harm the country’s national lottery. Speaking in response to a Parliamentary question, Donohoe (pictured) has said there does not appear to be “any evidence of a significant impact on the national lottery arising from online lottery betting at present”. Donohoe has also said contributions made by the national lottery to good causes has “not yet been materially affected by other developments” in terms of online or electronic lotteries, adding that the level of tax paid by the national lottery “attests to that”. Elisa Field, chairperson of the European Lotto Betting Association (eLBA), which was established last July to support operators in the lottery betting sector, has welcomed the comments and hopes this view will be reflected in an upcoming report Irish Lottery Regulator on betting on lotteries. “As we have said for some time, the evidence clearly shows that lottery betting does not impact the national lottery; we are pleased the Minister has recognised this,” said Field, who is also senior legal counsel at myLotto24. The eLBA, whose members include the likes of myLotto24, Lottoland, Multilotto and Lottogo, is now keen for more regulators and relevant ministries across the world to engage with the lottery betting sector to learn more about the market. The organisation has said that its members are keen to work with regulators and ministries to educate about this form of gaming and help facilitate the creation of proportionate regulatory environments. Regulations regarding lottery betting remain unclear in jurisdictions worldwide. In January, new laws came into effect in Australia banning all betting on the outcome of lottery draws. However, this did not halt Lottoland Australia launching a new betting product based on financial markets. The operator has denied this breaches the new laws, saying the product differs to those prohibited by the lottery betting ban.Image: Oireachtas Topics: Legal & compliance Lotterycenter_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland 6th March 2019 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Ireland maintain winning ways against Argentina

first_imgWednesday Dec 1, 2010 Ireland maintain winning ways against Argentina Ireland comfortably beat Argentina on Sunday with a 29-9 win at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Jonathan Sexton was on superb kicking form while Stephen Ferris and Gordon DArcy scored the tries.For Argentina, Felipe Contepomi had an off day with the boot as his kicking at goal wasnt up to standard, meaning that his side failed to stay in the match earning, Ireland a continued undefeated record at home against the South Americans.Keith Earls nearly scored with a minute left in the game, but the TMO controversially disallowed what looked to be a certain try. DArcy made up for it on full time though, crossing after a very neatly executed chip and chase.“We can hold our heads up. To finish with our highest winning margin against Argentina in the last game of the year is a great positive for us going through to the Six Nations,” said wing Tommy Bowe.“Whenever we’ve had dry ball, we’ve shown that we’re able to throw it about. That’s the type of rugby that we want to play. We have plenty of players who are willing to play good rugby. When we get the chance, we’re able to cut teams open and we’ll be looking to do more of that,” he added.The bad news for Leinster and Ireland is that Brian ODriscoll looks to have broken his jaw, which could mean hell miss upcoming Heineken Cup games. Rob Kearney will also be out for some time, including the early stages of the Six Nations.The result of this game ends a mixed bag of results for Ireland, with wins over Samoa and Argentina but losses to New Zealand and South Africa, despite playing promising rugby at times. They have shot back up the world rankings however, now sitting at 5th.

The project starts from the premise of dividing a big duplex, situated in front of the more distinguish park in the city, into two dwellings better adapted to a family’s present needs. At first sight, a visitor can get a sense of a stately home, possessing all elements and ambience characteristic of a superior dwelling, which give it such a special character. The challenge of this proposal is to achieve the recuperation of this generous space avoiding the loss of its previous character. The aim of the proposal is therefore to guarantee the conservation of all the elements that brought richness to the initial space and to obtain that the new architecture establishes a good dialogue between the new forms of living and the inherited legacy. Save this picture!© Filippo PoliOne of the main virtues of the initial house consists of the disposition of two terraces of generous dimensions related to its two levels. These outside spaces oriented to the south, have the benefit of magnificent views over Turo Park in the foreground and the sea as a backdrop. The decision not to divide these terraces into two was crucial when laying out the new dwellings. The proposal does not attempt to create two equal parts, two symmetrical dwellings; instead, it looks for a richer and more complex solution. It proposes a first house mainly set on one floor with a studio on the top floor taking advantage of the terrace on the previous attic floor. The second house is organised in two floors, with the south orientated terrace on the top floor, associated with the living-room, dining-room and kitchen. CAVAA developed the architecture of the 2 houses and defined the interior design and furniture of the duplex dwelling down to the last detail. Save this picture!© Filippo PoliThe location of the day area on the upper floor allows the living areas to be closely connected to the outside space; another north-orientated exterior space forms a garden. With this solution, the sequence of main spaces: kitchen, dining-room, living-room, became diaphanously related to the outside, creating new crossed visions with the city of Barcelona and the Collserola mountain. In this way, the outside landscape participates of the main rooms enriching and enlarging them. In the night area, located on the entrance area, are placed four bedrooms – a suite, two double and a single – with their corresponding bathrooms. The bedrooms with a clear north orientation, overlook the inside patio of the block; in this way, these rooms enjoy the privacy and calm that this part of the program requires. The access space is defined as a nexus between these two areas. Within this scope, the stair of the original dwelling spreads out with a magnificent and generous presence to establish a connection between the public and private areas of the building.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliThe project has a clear purpose of adopting natural light as a vertebrating element which articulates the program relating the two floors and their inside with their outside. That is why in spaces of more difficult lighting, skylights are created which not only favour the entrance of light but also an exchange of sensations. In this way, outside light enters the more obscure points of the dwelling and the view from them open to the outside. Save this picture!© Filippo PoliThe proposal is conscious of the magnificent legacy that the original building contains, preserving an ensemble of materials and furniture of great value and beauty. Elements like the magnificent cast-iron stair which presides over the entrance, the herringbone oak parquet or the carved wooden doors, are recuperated in order to match contemporary designs, offsetting by contrast the original elements that will continue captivating the home users, as they captivated us. Save this picture!© Filippo PoliThe building is located in a little green oasis inside the densely built web of Barcelona. In this context, next to the Turo Park, on the original house terraces, the vegetation has always had a special relevance. A clear example of this importance is the presence of an olive tree and a huge number of shrubs in the different patios and terraces of the original house. The new exterior spaces have been proposed as a dialogue between the original elements and the new plantations which, with autochthonous species, are complementary to the earlier ones. The result is some pleasant and fresh exterior gardens, with a vegetation that acts as a regulating agent of the inside temperature of the house.Save this picture!Atic Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFilms & Architecture: “Underground”ArticlesMuseum for Underwater Antiquities Competition Entry / Dimitris ThomopoulosUnbuilt Project Sharelast_img read more

Share The Netherlands Photographs Year:  AD Classics: Kubuswoningen / Piet BlomSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Kubuswoningen / Piet Blom CopyA popular tourist attraction and bizarre architectural experiment, the Kubuswoningen is located in the Oude Haven, the most historic section of Rotterdam’s port. Following the destruction of the Oude Haven during the Second World War, architect Piet Blom was asked to redevelop the area with architecture of character, presenting him the opportunity to apply his earlier cube housing exploration in Helmond to a more urban context. Known for his desire to challenge conventions, Blom did not want the Kubuswoningen to resemble typical housing; he strived to dissolve the attitude that “a building has to be recognizable as a house for it to qualify as housing.” During a time when the rebuilding of Rotterdam was pivotal, the Kubuswoningen served as an influential precedent for progressive and innovative architectural development. + 35Few buildings survived the 1940 bombing of the Oude Haven. As a result of a change in government in 1974, urban regeneration and housing became top priorities for the municipal council. Hans Mentink, the politician in charge of spatial planning at the time, had grown tired of the utilitarian architecture which was increasingly prevalent and believed that Rotterdam was “in need of architecture with some life in it.” Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdRecommended ProductsWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodEGGERLaminatesImpressed by Blom’s cube houses in Helmond, Mentink awarded him the contract to create a development plan for the Oude Haven area. Having not had work since Helmond, Blom was both excited and motivated to do his best work for the city of Rotterdam; however, he was also overwhelmed by the challenges, importance, and scale of the project. Wanting to avoid a dominating intervention, he told his client that he would design it “so that you cannot tell that it has been designed by one architect.” This objective led Blom to divide the housing development into three distinct projects: Blaaktoren, a 13-story hexagonal apartment tower that resembles the shape of a pencil; Spaanse Kade, a complex of terraced buildings that surrounds an inner courtyard; and the Kubuswoningen, a succeeding exploration of cube houses on a larger-scale grid. The municipal council appreciated this, as they believed that Rotterdam needed more than just cubic housing. The entire development contains 270 dwellings, 1000 square meters of catering and shops, and parking for 300 cars.Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdFascinated by urban planning, Blom believed that urban communities should feel like villages. By this time in his career he had begun to doubt the practice of stacking residences; regrettably, Blaaktoren and Spaanse Kade needed to utilize this in order to achieve the required housing density of 205 dwellings per hectare. On the other hand, this philosophical compromise allowed him the freedom to not sacrifice his ideals with Kubuswoningen. Metaphorically, he considered the experience of living in trees; each elevated cube represented a tree and therefore they collectively represented a forest. Blom realized that elevating inhabitable masses on narrow trunks would maximize public space below while creating ideal views from above, a concept that was inspired by the work of Le Corbusier.Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdThe cubic housing development endured various challenges and complications during design and construction.  The project spans the seven-lane Blaak, a major traffic artery, serving as a pedestrian bridge that connects the nearby market to the harbour.  The Blaak and an underground metro tunnel posed a significant challenge, requiring absolute precision in the foundation’s construction.  Other complications that could not have been predicted included the discovery of historic remains that could not be removed, the withdrawal of a contractor, a problem with the district heating system which reduced the buildable area of the development, and an economic recession that stunted rebuilding efforts. Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdThe Kubuswoningen’s pedestrian bridge features a promenade of retail space, which was inspired by the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.  In addition to residential cubes, there are also two larger “supercubes”.  The southernmost supercube was developed as a school of architecture while the nothernmost supercube was intended for commercial functions, but was never entirely finished.  The cube houses above are each supported by a hexagonal pylon that was constructed by joining three concrete pillars with six cellular brick walls.  These pylons enclose the promenade level storage space for residents.  Each cube has a total floor space of 106 square meters, divided into three levels.  The lowest floor serves as a living space, with a kitchen in one corner and a toilet and study space in another.  The intermediate floor above contains two bedrooms and a bathroom. The uppermost floor is a small space in the form of a triangular pyramid, often used as a child’s bedroom or sun lounge.   Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdEach cube is constructed as a timber-frame skeleton, insulated with rock wool, and sheathed with cement and wood-fiber board.  Due to the complexity of construction, the contractor built a complete mock-up of one unit.  The 70dB noise level of the Blaak meant that the few windows facing it could not be operable.  Fortunately, the geometry and orientation of the dwellings provided many opportunities for operable windows and ventilation. Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdSince the Kubuswoningen’s completion in 1984, several changes have occured. A 1998 renovation included the addition of new zinc roofs, which were mounted over the original shingles to increase the insulation value.  The original retail spaces proved impractical due to low pedestrian traffic and have since been repurposed as studio spaces for small offices, effectively creating a live-work community.  One residential cube has been opened to the public as a response to curious tourists, so that visitors can experience the unique spatial volume.  Recently the two supercubes have been converted: the school of architecture into a youth hostel, and the unresolved commercial space into transitional social housing. Save this picture!Roof PlanSave this picture!Northeast ElevationFollowing the subsequent construction of restaurants and bars, the Oude Haven became one of the most vibrant nightlife areas in the city. This evolution is not a surprise considering that Blom’s architecture, especially the Kubuswoningen, was meant to capture the fashionable and metropolitan essence of Rotterdam. Best known for his cube houses, Piet Blom did not have a prolific career as an architect as he was rarely willing to compromise his unconventional ideals. As an important pioneer of the Structuralist movement, his attention to form, aesthetics, and spatial experience as opposed to functionality, paved the way for future Dutch designers to collectively build an international reputation for innovative and experimental projects.Save this picture!© Dirk VerwoerdSource: Hengeveld, Jaap.

Architecture under CurrentThe Glanhof is a multi-story housing complex with 150 units in the center of Klagenfurt, Austria. It is named for its location on the Glan River and the arrangement of three building structures surrounding a green and sunny courtyard. In the first phase, a long-stretched structure was built along the Pischeldorfer street, which can be reached via an access balcony with a unique irregular zig-zag geometric facade that integrates hundreds of photovoltaic elements. The 50 – 75 m2 sized subsidized aartments feature up to 15 m2 large balconies oriented to the courtyard. Part of the energy concept of the virtually self-sufficient project is the geothermal brine reservoir that stores excess solar energy from the photovoltaic system during sunny months.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architects CollectiveSolar geometryPhotovoltaic systems have been neglected and could often still be found hidden on the roof not too long ago before becoming an integral part of architecture. The solar design for Glanhof 1 developed by Architects Collective integrates the photovoltaic panels into the glass facade along the street making it an energy-efficient and at the same time resource-saving alternative to conventional façade elements. They fulfill with their elegant appearance, the same functions, but create an additional benefit by making the building virtually energy autonomous.Save this picture!SectionThe long-stretched building, with 53 apartments floats on top of the fully-glassed ground floor that features common areas such as a café, buggies and bicycle parking, is a multi-generational-meeting- point including common spaces. At the same time, this base zone separates the green courtyard and the playground along the street where the entrance for the pedestrian and parking garage into the basement are located. From the street and the garage the inhabitants walk the four residential floors over two generous glazed staircases into an open access balcony.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architects CollectiveMeeting space for generationsThe residential mix of Glanhof 1 consists of families with children, single parents, singles and the elderly. The project was conceived together with Hilfswerk Kärnten (?) and meets the requirements of the older generation and at the same time brings younger people into the housing complex. In the first phase, 16 units with 50 m2 were built for assisted living, which are equipped with a 24 hour emergency call system. They are further connected by an elevator that allows hospital beds in the senior citizens center and the meeting room on the ground floor.Save this picture!Floor PlanAlmost energy-autonomousThe photovoltaic modules are part of the overall energy concept of the housing complex. Most of the hot water and heating is produced by a system of solar panels on the roof, a heat pump system and a geothermal reservoir. The photovoltaic elements are also connected directly to the heat pump and significantly increase the overall efficiency of the system. Excess solar energy is supplied and stored into a geothermal brine reservoir during the sunny months. This energy is then is released during colder month and latched into the heat pump system and made usable for heating. Only a small proportion of energy is required in the form of electricity for the heat pump and district heating for higher temperatures to support the water heating by external providers.Save this picture!Courtesy of Architects CollectiveProject gallerySee allShow lessTorrent Market and Civic Center / Vázquez ConsuegraSelected ProjectsBeijing Hutong House Renovation / ARCHSTUDIOSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Pischeldorfer Str. 53, 9020 Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

With a contemporary and sophisticated language, we seeked the creation of spaces that passed the message of personality and coziness, dialoguing with new ways of living and entertaining. Focused on the interaction and contact with natural elements, the design has as its guideline the experience of the resident itself. A functional and elegant architecture, with a minimalist, but at the same time, affectionate feature.Save this picture!© Isabela Mayer – Triad PhotoSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Isabela Mayer – Triad PhotoIn order to create this welcoming and nurturing atmosphere, we used a mixture of textures and materials like stone, glass, natural elements, minerals and the distinction of the wood, which are elements and features that stand out in the design. The possibility to personalize each detail contributed for the space to achieve the identity that we searched for since the beginning.Save this picture!© Isabela Mayer – Triad PhotoThe spaces were thought to offer the residents experiences, exchange of information and identity. To gather friends together around the table, enjoy good moments, decorate the house with flowers from the season, are all activities that bring comfort, the sensation of wellbeing, sensorial and visual pleasure. The project has as its main focus the experience of living and hosting as a new concept of luxury.Save this picture!© Isabela Mayer – Triad PhotoProject gallerySee allShow lessDigging Deep: Is Going Underground the Solution for the Future?InterviewsThe Hakka Triangle House / TEAM_BLDGSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Apucarana, Estado de Paraná, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Detained since 2015, the journalists could be executed at any moment. News News All ten worked for media outlets regarded as supportive of Al-Islah, a party with Muslim Brotherhood links that, in 2015, declared its support for the Yemeni government recognized by the international community and for the Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates that has intervened militarily in Yemen. Help by sharing this information to go further “These utterly unacceptable convictions are worthy of a bygone era and must be overturned without delay,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “The death sentences are typical of the way the Houthi rebels have systematically persecuted journalists, and are indicative of a readiness to use summary justice to settle scores with all critical media. Neither the sentences nor the arbitrary detention of all ten journalists since 2015 can be justified. They must be freed.”last_img read more

Still more restrictions for journalists in the tribal zones

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns the brief arrest by security forces in the tribal zone of North Waziristan of three journalists who were trying to cover clashes between the Pakistani security forces and the Taliban around Miran Shah.Those arrested on 6 March were Haroon Rasheed, of the Urdu-language service of the BBC World Service, Haji Mujtaba, a stringer for Reuters, and Inam-ur-Rahman, a contributor to the APTN news agency.Officials on 7 March also seized cassette tapes belonging to Inam-ur-Rahman.Reporters Without Borders is also very worried by persistent threats against journalists in the region from some mullahs and jihadists in North Waziristan.———————————————————–17.01.2006Media banned from Bajaur Agency tribal areaReporters Without Borders today condemned a government ban on all journalists, including Pakistanis, from going to the Bajaur Agency tribal area (60 km north of Peshawar). Haroon Rashid, of the Urdu section of the BBC World Service, a reporter for the Pakistani TV station AVT khyber, Mehmood Jan Babarand cameraman Waheed-ur-Rehman were today ordered by police to return to Peshawar when they tried to enter the area to continue investigating the effect of the 13 January US military bombing there. The journalists briefly protested and accused the government of trying to silence the media. Information minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said the tribal area was under control of the army, which refused to comment on the matter. —————————————————————–16.01.06Two journalists arrested while covering aftermathReporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest of Haroon Rashid of the BBC World Service’s Urdu-language section and Iqbal Khattak of Pakistan’s Daily Times in the Bajaur Agency part of the Tribal Areas on 14 January while covering reactions to a US airstrike on a village that was supposedly being visited by Al-Qaeda No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahiri.A total of 18 people were reportedly killed in the airstrike but not, apparently, Zawahiri. The authorities on 14 January also confiscated a video-cassette from a cameraman working for the US television news agency APTN, who had just filmed in the village.”Under what laws were the two Pakistani journalists arrested and the video-cassette seized,” Reporters Without Borders asked. “After a news blackout lasting for months, the civilian and military authorities had at last allowed journalists free access to the Tribal Areas. But when something embarrassing takes place, the press is clearly no longer welcome there.”Rashid and Khattak were arrested while taking photos of soldiers on the streets of Khar, which is the capital of the Bajaur Agency and lies 60 km north of Peshawar. They were taken to the office of Fahim Wazir, the area’s political administrator, who told them their reporting was contributing to insecurity in the region.The two journalists refused to let Wazir check the reports they planned to send. Before letting them go, he threatened to ban them from this tribal Area.Meanwhile, there is still no word of Hayatullah Khan, a reporter for the Urdu-language daily Ausaf and photographer for the European Press Photo Agency, who has been missing since 5 December 2005, a few days after he produced evidence that contradicted the official account of the death of a leading Arab member of Al-Qaeda, Hamza Rabia, in the North Waziristan section of the Tribal Areas. Rabia was killed by a US missile. Reporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of two Pakistani reporters and the confiscation of a video-cassette from an APTN cameraman in the Tribal Areas on 14 January.
