Can womens basketball buck UCONNs streak

Even after final exams this week, the No. 6 Ohio State women’s basketball team might not take its toughest test until Dec. 19. That’s the day the Buckeyes will get their shot at the No. 1 team in the nation: Connecticut. The Huskies are riding an 86-game winning streak. A win against the Buckeyes could extend the streak to 88, which would tie the 1971-74 UCLA men’s team for the longest winning streak in college basketball history. The game will be played at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan, N.Y. OSU coach Jim Foster said he’s looking forward to the location of the game more than he is the opponent. “A lot of people watch really interesting matchups, regardless of who it is. I think where it is is a little more significant than who. Connecticut is Connecticut, there’s no two ways about it,” Foster said. “But Connecticut at Madison Square Garden? That’s a historic building.” Connecticut will try to match OSU’s star power of center Jantel Lavender and guard Samantha Prahalis with its own duo in forward Maya Moore and guard Tiffany Hayes. All four players are members of the preseason watch list for the John R. Wooden award, which is given to the most outstanding player in college basketball each season. Moore won the award in 2009 and is Connecticut’s career leader in scoring. Prahalis said knocking off Connecticut would be a big moment for the OSU women’s basketball program. “Playing UConn and playing to our potential, and hopefully coming out with a victory, that would make our mark,” Prahalis said. The Buckeyes’ matchup with the Huskies will be the last marquee game of what has been a murderer’s row of a non-conference schedule for OSU. The Buckeyes will have already faced LSU, Virginia, Oklahoma and Syracuse before they take on Connecticut. Prahalis said the Buckeyes are always prepared for each opponent’s best effort. “Anytime we go somewhere to play, or that they come play us, they give us their best shot,” Prahalis said. “We wouldn’t expect anything less. We treat every opponent as they’re going to try their hardest, because they are.” The Buckeyes are 8-0 following an 95-84 win over Oklahoma. Foster said his team this year could perhaps be the best he’s coached in his nine seasons at OSU. “Maybe,” Foster said. “You can’t answer that question today, but I think we’ve got some depth that we haven’t had.” read more

Next week Bewleys Grafton Street could get a cut in its €15

first_imgTHE TENANTS OF the Bewley’s Café premises on Grafton Street will find out in the Supreme Court this week if they’re due a court-mandated rent reduction.The State’s highest court will make a judgement on Tuesday on a High Court ruling made last March, which  found that the rent charged by the Johnny Ronan-controlled company Ickandel must come down to current market rates.Ickendel’s loans have been transferred to Nama.The tenant currently pays an annual rate of €1.5 million per year, which was doubled at the date of its last rent review – 1 January 2007 – the peak of the property bubble.In his original ruling in the High Court, Mr. Justice Charleton said that rent charged in the 35 year contract signed between the tenant and Ickandel in 1987 must come down..On 31 March this year, the landlord appealed the decision.In his original ruling, Justice Charleton wrote that from the time of signing the contract “there had been marked deflation in the rental and housing purchase sector” and that “the last rent fixed was at the height of the property price inflation that undermined the Irish economy”.Charleton found that the parties had agreed never to fall below the initially agreed rent, but not “for anything other than a fair and open market rent”.Government promisesThe Government had promised on election to eliminate upward only rent reviews, but despite a campaign by retailers to introduce a bill on the matter penned by Senator Fergal Quinn, it has fallen foul of fears that a new law on the matter could violate the constitution.A dozen various trade and industry groups are pushing the Government to pass the bill and allow the Courts to test the constitutionality – or otherwise – of the resultant law.Read: The High Court said that Bewley’s rent should fall.

The Worst Things That Could Happen On The Game Of Thrones Finale

first_imgStay on target As Game of Thrones moves farther away from the source material of George R. R. Martin’s books, the plot is going in some interesting directions. Lots of people are frustrated by last week’s bizarre “kidnap a zombie” strategy, and we have some serious reservations going into Sunday’s extra-length finale. It really seems like the showrunners are going for big shock moments right now, and we shudder to think what kind of insane stuff they’ll bust out.You can read serious speculation about the Game of Thrones season finale pretty much everywhere on the Internet, but we don’t follow the crowds. Instead, we’re going to put on our pessimist hats and try to come up with the absolute most ridiculous, awful things that the show could pull. If even one of these things come to pass, we might be at the “jumping the shark” moment for this show. Let’s pull on our wizard hats and try to predict a future we don’t want to see.The Dragons MateThe Night King’s enlistment of the dragon Viserion into the army of the White Walkers definitely shifted the balance of power even more in his favor. And most people are expecting a massive showdown between Dany’s remaining two and their corrupted brother. But what if things take a turn… for the romantic? We haven’t really established the gender of any of the dragons, right? Maybe one of them is a girl, and instead of battling the two sides decide to get it on in mid-air in a massive explosion of draconic love. First, comes mating, then comes eggs, then comes a Westeros run by lizards.Bran Is His Own FatherThe hot fan theory circulating right now is that Bran Stark is actually the Night King. He used his bizarre ability to warp back in time to try and stop the White Walkers from being created, only to be trapped inside the form of the corrupted First Man. That’s… plausible, I guess, but why stop there? We’ve already established that Bran is a horny little devil, so what if he accidentally jumped back into Ned Stark’s body at the moment of his conception? Sure, there’s no plot reason for it, but it’d be nice to give Sean Bean another paycheck. He deserves it.Cersei Bangs The ZombieThe intrigue about whether the White Walkers are a real threat to Westeros or not has been simmering all season, with Jon and crew launching their plan to bring one back to King’s Landing as proof. But who can say what’ll happen when Cersei Lannister gets her eyes on that frosty walking corpse? We’ve already seen her engage in the sin of incest with her brother Jamie, and there’s seemingly nothing she won’t do to hold power. What if instead of arming her people against the Night King, she just marries in?Sansa Kills AryaThe tension between the surviving Stark daughters is so thick you could cut it with a knife – and in the last episode, Arya pretty much did. After Sansa discovered her bag of faces, Arya subtly implied that her sister’s mug could join them. Smart money’s on the two of them pulling a long con on Littlefinger, who is due some comeuppance, but if we want to think about the least satisfying possible outcome, it’d be Sansa siding with the manipulative bastard and ending her sister’s glorious path of revenge. That’s the only thing that would make viewers hate her character more.Viserys ReturnsThe barrier between life and death is getting more and more porous every season in Westeros. And if the show really wanted to do a ridiculous shock plot twist, they’d somehow bring back Viserys Targaryen, Dany’s brother who got brutally murdered with a crown of gold back at the very beginning of this whole mess. The season started with Daenerys returning to Dragonstone, her family’s ancestral home, and family’s been a big theme for her. What a coup it would be for her total dick of a sibling to pop his shiny metal head back up with a little razzle-dazzle.It’s All Happening In Westworld“Cinematic Universes” are the new hotness in the entertainment world, so why not take this opportunity to establish the HBO Cinematic Universe. The entirety of Game Of Thrones is just a simulation in the Westworld theme park! All of the White Walkers are the missing people from The Leftovers. CGI Lena Dunham’s character from Girls into the White Wedding. Play the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme every time Tyrion walks on screen.It Was All A DreamThe classic cop-out for serialized TV that’s written itself into a corner, the “it was all a dream” reset allows producers to undo poor plot decisions, bring back fan favorite characters and generally squeeze a little more juice out of a lemon. We can see George R. R. Martin brought in to film awakening from slumber in a bed covered with bear skins and 20 sided dice, rubbing off the nightmare sweat and promising to never again eat pepperoni pizza before bed. The camera pans to a computer that hasn’t been turned on in six weeks, and we fade to black.It’s Just A Dragon And A WolfEverybody’s expecting the title of the finale – “The Dragon And The Wolf” to refer to Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow finally hooking up. But what if, in a Rick & Morty-level troll, HBO just broadcasts a split-screen live feed from the San Diego Zoo of a Komodo dragon and an Arctic wolf in their respective enclosures for 80 minutes. It becomes the most illegally downloaded television program in the history of the Pirate Bay and HBO GO subscriptions skyrocket 440%.Ed Sheeran Takes The ThroneProbably the most hotly argued moment of Season 7 was the appearance of British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran at the fireside with Arya Stark in the premiere. The show has featured contemporary music before, but they’ve been smart enough to keep the performers off-screen. Sheeran’s cameo as a redheaded bard who sings the tune “Hands of Gold” seemed like a throwaway to give a special treat to actress Maisie Williams, but anything can happen on Game of Thrones. What if the smoke clears from the huge battle that’s coming and we fade in on Ed sitting on the Iron Throne for a huge musical number?Yeesh. Can you think of a worse possible turn of events for the Game of Thrones season finale? Throw them in the comments, and then we’ll shoot them in the sun, so nobody at HBO gets any ideas.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… last_img read more

Fiat Fiat Chrysler loves a nice, inexpensive aesthetic upgrade package. Look anywhere in the lineup, from Dodge to Jeep and back again, and you’ll find ’em. Now, FCA has a new package of that kind in store for the Fiat 124 Spider, and it’s headed to the 2019 New York Auto Show.Fiat announced on Friday that it will bring the new 2019 124 Spider Urbana Edition to the New York Auto Show next week. The Urbana Edition, which I’m relatively sure is not a shout-out to town in which the University of Illinois resides, is an inexpensive aesthetics package that boosts the looks of the Miata-based 124 without raising the window sticker by much.The Urbana Edition is based on the 124 Spider’s Classica trim. It gives the looks a boost by adding 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, performance tires, new exhaust tips and piano black exterior accents. There’s also a glossy black finish on the seatback pillar and mirror caps. Fiat also threw a set of fog lights into the mix.On the inside, there are some matte gray accents, in addition to a wrapped instrument panel and gauge-cluster hood. The Urbana Edition also picks up a set of seats wrapped in a combination of leather and microfiber.Otherwise, it’s the same Fiat 124 Spider as usual, bouncing around town with a 1.4-liter turbocharged I4 that puts out 164 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The Urbana Edition can be had with either a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. The Urbana Edition adds just $995 to the car’s bottom line — and for context, the 124 Spider Classica starts at $26,685, including $1,495 for destination. Alas, it’s not available for the peppier Abarth version.

Tata Steel to start sale process of UK business April 11 to

first_imgTata Steel will officially put up its U.K. assets up for sale starting April 11, Britain’s business secretary Sajid Javid said after his meeting with Tata Group Chairman Cyrus Mistry in Mumbai Wednesday. The U.K. government assured support to buyers, as it seeks to protect thousands of jobs in the country. Javid and Mistry held talks in Mumbai after the former flew to India Tuesday and the two talked about “the details of the upcoming sales process and discussed timescales for any potential sale,” according to the British government’s Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. “A number of people have already started coming forward and I think more will do so once the formal process begins,” Javid reportedly said. Earlier this week, he held a meeting with Indian-origin businessman Sanjeev Gupta, who owns Liberty House metal group, on Tata Steel’s U.K. assets. While the Tata Group had earlier said it would leave the U.K. at the earliest, according to Reuters, the company assured the British government it would provide “reasonable” time for the sale process to be completed, Javid tweeted. “Met with Tata Steel in India today. I’m determined to do all I can to secure a long-term viable future for U.K. steel and workers. Constructive and  positive meeting. Formal sales process will begin by Monday – govt will do all it can to help secure a serious buyer,” the British business minister said. “No set time frame. Tata Steel will allow a reasonable period to find a buyer,” he tweeted. Tata Steel’s exit from the U.K. is feared to affect nearly 40,000 jobs in the country, as it directly employs 15,000 people in the U.K. and deals with 25,000 other workers in the supply chain. The David Cameron government faced criticism from the Opposition over the potential crisis. “Workers and their families face a worrying time, and our priority is to help those likely to be affected,” Cameron had tweeted last week after Tata’s announcement. The Indian steel giant had cited high operation costs, weak demand as well as import of Chinese steel into Europe as reasons for leaving the U.K. Tata Steel’s U.K. business, including the country’s biggest steel plant at Port Talbot, is reportedly losing more than £1 million daily.last_img read more

Florida shooting suspect twice hospitalized for mental illness

first_imgJacksonville police officers guard an area Monday, 27 August 2018, near the scene of a fatal shooting at The Jacksonville Landing on Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla. Photo: APThe suspect in a deadly shooting at a Florida video game tournament had previously been hospitalized for mental illness, according to court records in his home state of Maryland reviewed by The Associated Press.Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications.The records show Katz’s parents disagreed on how to care for their troubled son, with his father claiming his estranged wife was exaggerating symptoms of mental illness as part of their long and bitter custody battle. The couple divorced in 2007.Katz opened fire Sunday at a gaming bar inside a collection of restaurants and shops in Jacksonville. He killed two people and wounded 10 others before fatally shooting himself during the “Madden NFL 19″ tournament, authorities said.Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams has declined to comment on the gunman’s motive.The suspect’s father, Richard Katz of Baltimore, and his mother, Elizabeth Katz of Columbia, Maryland, did not respond to phone messages Sunday or Monday. Efforts by the AP to reach them at their homes were also unsuccessful.The Howard County, Maryland, divorce filings say that David Katz played video games obsessively as a young adolescent, often refusing to go to school or to bathe. Elizabeth Katz, a toxicologist at the Department of Agriculture, said she confiscated some of her son’s gaming equipment after finding him playing in the wee hours.”His hair would very often go unwashed for days. When I took his gaming equipment controllers away so he couldn’t play at 3 or 4 in the morning, I’d get up and find that he was just walking around the house in circles,” the mother said, according to a transcript in the court files.At one point, she put his gaming controllers in her bedroom behind a locked door and he punched a hole in the door, she said.Elizabeth Katz said her youngest son had increasing difficulty concentrating following his parents’ split. A judge awarded custody of the boy to his mother, with visitation rights to the father.At times David “curled up into a ball,” refused to attend school and sobbed, she said. She asserted that her ex-husband instructed David not to take Risperidal – an anti-psychotic medication prescribed to him. The father claimed in court filings that David was not “diagnosed as psychotic.”He missed large stretches of school while under his mother’s supervision. He was admitted to the nearby Sheppard Pratt mental health system for about 12 days in late 2007. Court documents say a psychiatrist at that time administered antidepressants. He later spent about 13 days at Potomac Ridge, a mental health services facility in Rockville.Richard Katz, a NASA engineer, said his ex-wife had “an obsession with using mental health professionals and in particular psychiatric drugs to perform the work that parents should naturally do.” He said she routinely gave false information to mental health care providers. He described one incident in which his son was handcuffed by police after locking himself in his mother’s car in an attempt to avoid going to a mental health appointment with her.Federal law requires gun buyers to disclose whether they have ever been involuntarily committed to a mental institution. Maryland state law also prohibits the sale or transfer of a gun to someone who has been diagnosed with a mental disorder or who has a history of violent behavior.In recent weeks, Katz legally purchased the two handguns he carried from a gun store in Baltimore, the sheriff said.The sheriff, who said Katz did not fire both weapons, did not say whether Katz disclosed his past hospitalizations on the form for the required federal background check.By the time Katz was 15, the divorce records show, the father asserted that Elizabeth Katz “routinely” called the police for “trivial matters.” In a transcript of a 2010 phone call, the mother phoned a 911 dispatcher, accusing David of “abusing” her by coming home late after a visitation with his father. She then insisted he was “assaulting” her by trying to gain control of the cable cord to the television. She complained to the dispatcher that he was rolling his eyes and laughing.”You’ll roll your eyes. Fine. You’ll pay. Where are you going to be tomorrow?” she said in the transcript, addressing her son. The dispatcher encouraged her not to say anything further until a police officer arrived. He was eventually sent to a wilderness therapy program in Utah called RedCliff Ascent for nearly 100 days.According to the father’s version of events, the relationship between mother and son got increasingly worse.Elizabeth Katz put David’s clothes in suitcases on at least two occasions and asked him to leave, including once on Mother’s Day in 2007. In court filings, the father asserted that David “routinely expresses his anger” toward her. He claimed that when David was staying with him, the boy showed no signs of behavioral problems and was “generally lively, communicative” and “playful.”In a 2010 letter, David Katz wrote a letter to a magistrate judge saying he wanted to live with his father and describing his mother as “pretty crazy.” He said she called the police to the family’s home about 20 times and “gets drunk.” He blamed her for his poor grades.Despite the problems, Katz graduated from Hammond High School in Columbia in 2011. He went on to attend the University of Maryland, though he did not earn a degree.Katz used the gamer tags “Bread” or “Sliced Bread” when competing. The game’s maker, EA Sports, lists a David Katz as a 2017 championship winner.On the Madden competition circuit, Katz was known to barely speak to fellow gamers and sometimes exhibited an erratic playing style, according to other competitors.”We’ve always known he was a little off and stuff just because he wasn’t social at all,” Shay Kivlen, 21, of Seattle, said Monday in an interview.last_img read more

Happy Birthday Selina Kyle

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target I’ve had plenty of discussions about Selina Kyle. I’m the biggest Batman nerd. To this day, I try my hardest to absorb some of the history of the DC legend. Also to this day, I love the history of the many weird and unusual villains of Gotham City. Back in Batman 101, one of the first villains you learn of is the Joker. The second is always Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Selina Kyle has always been the opposite to Batman. But… not in an opposing way that Joker is to Batman. She’s the thief in the night. The ying to his yang. Let’s put it like this. If Batman were in Black Panther, Shuri would laugh at him uncontrollably for freezing.Selina’s comic life origins have been retconned a couple of times, but something that sticks with every story is her early life. Selina started off a life of complete ups and down but more down and out. It’s incredible how opposite she lived from Batman (or Bruce’s) lavish lifestyle and how they found true love in a hopeless place like Gotham. Selina’s home life was brutal. She survived a father who drank, a separation from Maggie, her sister and a mother who died tragically from suicide. She’s also been to juvie. After she left, she was offered a job at a carnival after pickpocketing one of the guests. She would go on developed more of her skills before a tragedy at the carnival forced her to head back to Gotham and start thieving for life.We can go into more of her tragedy, but let’s get into some good stuff, shall we? Her first appearance came in 1986, Detective Comics #569. Batman and Robin take down some criminals with the help of Catwoman, but Joker in the worst criminal decline he can go through decides it would be good to catnap Catwoman after seeing Batman almost happy for once. He hires Doctor Moon, an evil scientist to mindwipe Catwoman. There honestly seemed to be no actual motives behind this besides boredom form the Joker, which just makes so much sense.Besides being mindwipes in her first issue, Selina has long since developed a long list of skills. Both from her life at the carnival, but also from living on the streets of Gotham for so long. She’s mastered acrobatics, martial arts, boxing. She’s long since become a master of disguise with stealth. Between the tragedy that comes to her, Selina has always remained strong and dominated figure in the Batverse. She’s not afraid to tell her what on her mind. She’s seductive, stunning and complex. She may come off cold on the surface. However, she carries one of the biggest hearts on her shoulders. This is shown by her relationship with Holly “Go-Nightly” Robinson, a close friend and second Catwoman and with Batman, Bruce Wayne, who she’s destined to marry!If there’s a comic I’d love to suggest from her multi-fantastical run, I’d highly to recommend both Hush and Gotham City Sirens. Hush, written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Jim Lee, has to be the most prominent and epically satisfying (if not heartbreaking and somewhat frustrating) run that includes Batman and Catwoman on a level where she’s used as leverage. Please follow this up with Heart of Hush where that leverage because tenfold. (Also, Hush is the BEST villain, don’t you @ me.)After reading Hush, follow it up with Gotham City Sirens. GCS, written by Paul Dini with art by Guillem March, is everything that is delightful about being a female villain in the time of free for all. Selina combines forces Harley Quinn and Pamela Isley (Poison Ivy). They take justice into their own hands, but things don’t turn out like they’re supposed to. Think of Friends, but with cool lady villains going off to vigilante at night. Yeah, it’s that cool!Selina Kyle is also portrayed by some supremely gorgeous actresses over the years. Julie Newmar (1966) and Earth Kitt (1968) for the Batman: TV Show. Lee Meriwether (Batman, 1966), Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman, 1992), Halle Berry (Catwoman, we don’t speak of this) and Anne Hathaway (Dark Knight Rises, we speak of this a little), Camren Bicondova (Gotham) for movies, TV shows and spin-offs inside Batman universes. We haven’t touched the surface of voice acting for the gorgeous cat with talents like Zoe Kravitz, Eliza Dushku, and Tress MacNeille to name a few.I think it’s safe to say that this cats future has been steadily securing her future, both in the comics, film, tv and in our hearts. She’s come a long way from a tragic history to being a woman that is independently slaying every single day but also winning the hearts of billionaires as a side gig.Happy Birthday, Selina Kyle, you are truly one of the coolest and most beautiful cats around.

Its Lonely at the Top for Nationstar Mortgage

first_img April 21, 2016 609 Views in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Servicing Moody’s Investor Service Nationstar Mortgage Non-Bank Servicers Ocwen Financial 2016-04-21 Seth Welborn Dallas, Texas-based Nationstar Mortgage was the only one out of the three largest U.S. non-bank mortgage servicers rated by Moody’s to turn a profit during 2015, according to Moody’s Investors Service’s Servicer Dashboard on Thursday.Nationstar’s net income for 2015 was $43 million, while the other two largest servicers, Ocwen Financial Corp. and Walter Investment Management Corp., posted losses of $246.7 million and $263.2 million for last year, respectively.“Nationstar was the only large Moody’s-rated non-bank mortgage servicer to be profitable in 2015, and its net income was just $43 million,” said Warren Kornfeld, Moody’s analyst. “Concurrently, all three non-bank servicers’ reliance on confidence-sensitive, short-term funding heightens their liquidity and refinancing risk, while Walter faces the additional challenge of a weak capital position.”According to Moody’s, profitability has been weak for non-bank servicers over the last couple of years due to mortgage servicing right fair value adjustments, goodwill impairments, and higher regulatory expenses. Operating costs as a percentage of revenues for both Ocwen and Walter have risen as a result of intense regulatory scrutiny for residential mortgage servicers, according to Moody’s; however, Nationstar’s operating costs as a percentage of revenues have been more steady. Moody’s expects that Nationstar’s earnings will improve only marginally in 2016 as operating costs rise due to increased regulatory scrutiny.“Concurrently, all three non-bank servicers’ reliance on confidence-sensitive, short-term funding heightens their liquidity and refinancing risk, while Walter faces the additional challenge of a weak capital position.” Warren Kornfeld, Moody’s AnalystElsewhere in Moody’s Servicer Dashboard, Nationstar and Ocwen continued to have a higher level of loss mitigation than their bank peers in Q4 2015 while re-default rates on modifications either remained flat or improved slightly. The non-bank servicers also had lower missed payment to foreclosure referral timelines compared with bank mortgage servicers (less than one year on average for subprime for non-bank servicers, compared with more than two years for bank mortgage servicers). Subprime collection metrics continued to improve for all mortgage servicers, both bank and non-bank, in the country in the fourth quarter; Wells Fargo was tops in subprime, and CitiMortgage led in prime and Alt-A, according to Moody’s.New delinquencies and roll rates experienced declines in Q4, notably for subprime loans, largely as a result of ongoing improvements in the economy, according to Moody’s.center_img Share It’s Lonely at the Top for Nationstar Mortgagelast_img read more

Gambling glitz in neglected part of Limassol

first_imgBy Andria Kades After years of debate, a contract for Cyprus’ grand integrated casino resort was signed earlier this week, promising thousands of job opportunities and increased tourism through a €500m investment.Set to be completed by 2020 in Zakaki, Limassol, it will be built next to the city’s My Mall covering a huge expanse of area and, according to the government, create over 4,000 jobs and bring in a whopping 300,000 tourists per year.These impressive figures were trumpeted on Monday when the contract between Cyprus’ recently established national gaming and casino supervision commission was signed with the consortium of Melco International Development Ltd, Seminole HR Holdings LLC (Melco Hard Rock) and CNS Group (Cyprus Phassouri Zakaki Ltd).A day after the signing, Melco announced they would be buying Hard Rock’s shares. Thus, pending the approval of the government, Melco will hold 70.74 per cent and CNS the remaining 29.26 per cent, which Melco says would benefit Cyprus as it would streamline the process and allow for more flexibility. It is likely the design plans will change following Melco’s majority stake.“Our goal for Cyprus is to start implementing the project as soon as possible,” and more plans will be unveiled very soon, a Melco representative told the Sunday Mail.The contract allows for one integrated casino resort, set to be the largest one of its kind in Europe, spanning 9,000 square metres, with 136 gaming tables, 1,200 gaming machines, a luxury hotel with 500 rooms with the capacity for expansion, a conference hall of 6,000 square metres that can accommodate audiences of 1,500, and a wellness centre covering 4,000 square metres.Circled area shows where the casino will be locatedAdditionally, the investors are allowed to operate four satellite casinos across Cyprus and one temporary casino until the major resort opens.The satellite casinos will be smaller gambling spots with 50 slot machines. The consortium will operate them in Nicosia, Larnaca, Paphos and Famagusta. In addition to the machines, the satellite casino in Nicosia will also have five gaming tables.Rumours have been rife that at least one of the satellite casinos will begin operating by the end of this year, reports that chairman of the national gaming and casino supervision commission Christos Mavrellis does not deny.“No formal applications have been submitted yet,” Mavrellis told the Sunday Mail though he did not rule out the possibility.Spokesman for the consortium Andy Choy had said during the signing ceremony that the temporary and satellite casinos would be up and running by March 2018.Two possibilities have been suggested as locations of the temporary casino –  the Monte Caputo nightspot in Amathus and Trikkis Palace, on the Limassol-Nicosia highway – but Mavrellis could not confirm this before applications are submitted.The investors are expected to do so in the coming weeks, but one source close to the matter told the Sunday Mail, the temporary casino may be in the west of Limassol. This may hint at Millennium Palace, also in Zakaki where the permanent casino will be built. The venue is often used as a wedding and reception hall.Zakaki lies to the west of Limassol and was until a decade ago a neglected part of the city, and only really began to get a facelift after My Mall opened its doors to the public in 2009. The road from the city centre to the mall is still lined with several derelict old buildings and factories, a sad contrast to developments such as the marina and mall on either side of it.According to the Limassol Chamber of Commerce (Keve), plans are currently in the pipeline to make the area less of an eyesore, most likely through expropriating old buildings and offering incentives to attract lucrative business.“Already, we have seen the beginning of these plans,” Zakkaki community leader Andreas Demetriades told the Sunday Mail.“Development has begun in earnest and residents are very pleased.”At Ayios Antonis, the roads leading towards the castle and marina are already being expanded to accommodate four lanes.“We don’t have any concerns. We’re just very happy that the casino will be in our area as it will bring in more development to the west of Limassol,” Demetriades added.Additionally, he said it was far more likely that problems plaguing the area such as mosquitoes would be settled so as to keep the investor and influx of visitors happy.As far as residents are concerned, director of Limassol Tourism Company Maria Stylianou Michaelidou said the benefits the casino would bring – including the upgrading of the area and an increase in the property value – would far outweigh any possible concerns they may have.In a broader sense, it would positively impact Limassol, attracting high quality tourism and extending tourism throughout the year, she added.Currently, the most popular tourist season is from May until the end of October with room for improvement between November and April, which is a period more popular for conferences and business travel, Stylianou said.“The casino will enrich winter tourism providing more leisure options and adding value to visitors’ experience…and will make Limassol more attractive to European, Middle Eastern, Russian and Asian markets.”What sets apart Cyprus’ integrated casino resort with others across Europe is that the one in Limassol will be developed based on the American model such as found in Las Vegas, Stylianou said.“We are talking about a resort not just a casino operation. This concept includes luxurious accommodation, fine dining, high quality shows and happenings, shopping, spa, cultural centre, conference facilities, children entertainment areas and events, all aiming at offering an unforgettable experience to the high-profile guests,” she added.President of gaming commission Christos Mavrellis and Melco consortium representative Andy Choy at the signing ceremonyThe concept is different to European casinos which focus more on the casino operation than the accompanying amenities and offerings, making Cyprus’ casino a more integrated and “exceptional visitor” experience, Stylianou said.No one under the age of 21 will be able to use the casino, though Mavrellis stressed the resort itself with the hotel and venues, is open to all.With Cyprus’ notoriety for betting and the toll gambling addiction can take on families, former President Demetris Christofias had opposed the creation of a casino on social grounds, but the current government saw it as a way to attract investment, particularly after the 2013 financial crisis.But Mavrellis said the government will take measures to ensure social responsibility. There will be black lists forbidding entry to people for various reasons, one of which may be an addiction to gambling. Although regulations are still being prepared – with the assistance from UK experts – people may even opt to voluntarily be placed on the black list.“The law will then bar them from entering the casino for three years.”Additionally, family members may request someone be placed on the list. “There might be a mother who says her husband doesn’t pay child support and is on welfare. She might make an application to us and we would have to review it,” Mavrellis said, though he acknowledged it was a grey area.Every single person employed will need to be approved by the gaming commission which will also evaluate details such as the layout of the casino – where the tables will be placed for instance, the gaming machine suppliers and even tour operators, Mavrellis said.To make the bureaucratic process easier for the consortium, any applications or forms that need to be submitted will be handed over directly to the cabinet, as opposed to all the various departments such as town planning or municipality.The casino, which is expected to bring in €100m a year in taxes, according to earlier statements by Finance Minister Harris Georgiades, will require a lot more infrastructure – such as electricity, water supply and better access, all of which can be met, said Stylianou.While many wealthy casinos visitors will be unlikely to use public transport, improved services will also be needed. Currently bus route 30 goes to the mall, but with the further development of west Limassol, more means of transport will probably be evaluated. Lanitis Group is also working on a golf resort in the area, which will further increase the need for better infrastructure.This leaves ground for new ideas, Stylianou said, such as introducing a boat taxi from one end of Limassol to the other.Although this is still early stages, this is just one of many ideas that will be investigated to boost Limassol’s image as a high-quality tourism destination, she added.  You May LikeCity BeautyDo This To Fix Sagging Jowls Without SurgeryCity BeautyUndoHearClearRowland Heights Seniors With Hearing Loss Are In For a Big SurpriseHearClearUndoSolar SolutionsCalifornia Will Pay Homeowners to Install SolarSolar SolutionsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
