Gaming Realms completes sale of B2C subsidiary

first_img Mobile games developer Gaming Realms has finalised the sale of its Bear Group B2C subsidiary to River iGaming.The deal, first announced in February, is worth a total consideration of £11.5m (€12.7m/$14.3m). Gaming Realms has received a cash sum of £7.35m, with a deferred consideration of £1.5m due by December 31, 2020, while River has assumed £2.65m of liabilities associated with Bear Group.Gaming Realms plans to use part of the funds generated via the sale to repay its Barclays Bank overdraft facility, certain creditors and costs relating to the deal, which together total £3.1m, with the remaining £4.25m going towards game development and licensing.The deal also sees Gaming Realms grant River iGaming’s River Technologies subsidiary a sole perpetual licence to its real-money gaming platform, as well as sell its 30% residual stake in River UK Casino.The sale finalises Gaming Realms’ exit from the UK real money B2C market as a direct supplier, while the transaction will reduce headcount by 50 people and lead to a reduction in costs and overheads. The developer also said it will allow it to focus on its expanding and higher margin game development and licensing segment.“The completion of the transaction marks a major step change for the business and the ability to now focus on creating new gaming content and licensing, which is delivering much higher margin,” Gaming Realms chief executive, Patrick Southon, said.“With a number of new licensing agreements in the pipeline and a much stronger balance sheet, the company looks forward to updating the market on further progress in due course.”Last June, River UK Casino agreed to purchase certain real-money gaming brands from Gaming Realms, including Pocket Fruity, Spin Genie, Britain’s Got Talent Games and X Factor Games. After this transaction, River iGaming held a 70% stake in River UK Casino, with Gaming Realms retaining a 30% share.However, at the time of February’s acquisition announcement, Gaming Realms said it did not believe River UK Casino would meet its EBIT target of £2.2m for the 12 months to June 30, 2019, in order for it to gain further deferred consideration in connection with the River UK Casino acquisition deal.Gaming Realms will retain the Slingo brand and Slingo.com domain, but both will enter a white label agreement with River iGaming upon completion of the deal to enable Slingo to continue to operate on the Bear Group gaming platform.Last month, Gaming Realms cited its decision to sell various affiliate marketing and B2C real-money gaming assets as the main reason behind a jump in profit in 2018. Profit for the year stood at £929,305, compared to a loss of £8.2m last year, but revenue was down from £7.6m to £6.2m.

Downtime with… Newcastle wing Adam Radwan

first_imgThis article originally appeared in the March 2021 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Adam Radwan scores for Newcastle against Gloucester (Getty Images) The Falcons flyer discusses splurges, superstitions and state secrets Do you have any hobbies? I like to cook. I go fishing quite a lot too. In the summer I went up the coast a little bit. But I’ve been all over. Newcastle is quite a good place for it because you’ve got the sea, then you’ve obviously got the River Tyne. You can do all sorts round here. It’s relaxing, especially when the weather is good.So what do you cook when you want to impress? I know it sounds basic but I make the best cup of tea anyone’s ever had! I’ve also got a pizza oven so I’d make a nice pizza. Or a roast, depending on what they fancied.What are you like in adverse weather? The last few weeks it’s been freezing! Training or playing, I’ll always make sure I wear my Exosuit – their under-top helps with posture as well as keeping me warm – but it’s been like snow, rain, wind. It gets really cold.Any superstitions? I was thinking about this the other day, actually. I don’t have any superstitions, but… At half-time I’ll eat a packet of salt and vinegar McCoy’s crisps. Not a full packet, but basically sometimes I cramp up quite badly. I’ve looked into it loads and a few other athletes have done it, so at half-time I’ll eat half a bag. The first time I ever did it, Dean Richards gave me the funniest look ever. Downtime with… Newcastle wing Adam RadwanHow did you first pick up rugby? I stayed at a mate’s one night and he had rugby training the next day, so I just went with him. The first game I played was at No 8 and I didn’t have a clue what was going on, but my next game was on the wing and I ended up scoring seven tries or something like that. From then, I’ve stayed on the wing.Do you have any nicknames? Most call me ‘Raders’ but I’ve got quite big eyes, so I will get called ‘Ozil’ sometimes, like the footballer. Or ‘Goggle Eyes’ maybe.Which of your team-mates would you like to be for a day? Of all my current team-mates I’d like to be Toby Flood. I’d max out all of his credit cards. I’d just spend all of his money on whatever!What’s your biggest waste of money?We got quite addicted to Clash of Clans (the app) at the club and we had a little group. Every month we said that you had to subscribe. You had to be paying some money and buying stuff in it. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Who are your three dream dinner party guests?Probably Barack Obama because he seems pretty cool and I could ask him loads of interesting questions about stuff like Area 51 (a secret Nevada base). David Attenborough, because I really like nature. And then I should probably bring a comedian. Lee Evans is pretty funny.We have to ask about Area 51. Do you believe in aliens? Not really, but there must be loads of secrets we don’t know. Obama must know all that stuff, like who killed JFK. But back on Area 51, do you remember a few years ago when it was in the news that people were going to try to ‘storm’ Area 51? (Some internet personalities converged on an airstrip in the Nevada desert.) At the rugby club we had a discussion about if you were going to pick your team of five to ‘storm’ Area 51, who would you go for?And who did you go for? So my five was me, Gary Graham, Ben Stevenson, Tom Penny and Sean Robinson.What superpower would you like to have?It’s not really a superpower, but I’d like a portal gun like in Rick and Morty (so you can walk into anywhere). I would probably go somewhere like a bank’s vault first. Or maybe to Buckingham Palace? Nah, not there, definitely the bank vault.What’s the best bit of advice you’ve been given? Gary Graham told me to never kick a ball again in my life!Gary Graham, scoring for Newcastle, is one of the jokers at the club (Getty Images)Who’s your funniest team-mate? Well, the prop Jon Welsh thinks he’s pretty funny, but he probably is so I’ll give him that. He’s in my top three with Gary Graham and Jamie Blamire.Any practical jokes you can share? When Charlie Maddison came to the club as a new signing, he asked if anyone knew someone who could sort him with a car. I changed my WhatsApp to look like I was a car salesman and they gave him my number. I was sending him forms asking him stupid stuff like what his shoe size was.I worked it for a few days, even got him to send me a happy birthday voice note for my made-up child! We do it every year now to new guys. We’ve sold cars, tried to find a house to rent. All sorts.And finally, how would you like to be remembered? As someone quite fun and hard-working. And on the pitch as someone who scored a lot of tries.last_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Washington, DC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem By Lynette WilsonPosted Sep 19, 2016 Tags World leaders adopt global migration compact Presiding Bishop’s delegation attends UN summit on refugees and migrants [Episcopal News Service] World leaders came together at the United Nations Sept. 19 to adopt the New York Declaration, a document that commits countries around the world to protect the rights of refugees and migrants and to share the responsibility for the record number of people on the move.“Today’s summit represents a breakthrough in our collective efforts to address the challenges of human mobility,” said U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, following the declaration’s adoption.Countries’ adoption of the declaration will mean, he said, that “more children can attend school, more workers can securely seek jobs abroad, instead of being at the mercy of criminal smugglers, and more people will have real choices about whether to move once we end conflict, sustain peace and increase opportunities at home.”The U.N. General Assembly summit was the first-ever meeting of heads of state and government to address the large movements of refugees and migrants, aimed at unifying countries behind a more humane and coordinated approach.All 193 U.N. member states reached consensus on the declaration to develop by 2018 a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration; ensure a more equitable sharing of responsibility for hosting and supporting the world’s refugees; to commit to protect the human rights of all refugees and migrants regardless of their status; and to commit to launching a global campaign to counter xenophobia.The real work, however, begins when countries follow through and implement the terms of the declaration.“The U.N. has invited civil society into this process and as a faith-based organization, we must continue to engage with the global community to ensure the standards included in the New York Declaration on Refugees and Migrants are actually upheld,” said Lacy Broemel, the Episcopal Church’s refugee and immigration policy analyst, following the declaration’s adoption. Broemel attended the summit as an observer on behalf of Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.“Refugees and migrants are experiencing human rights abuses, being forced from their homes, and are facing xenophobic and racist attacks around the world. We cannot ignore people who need and deserve our attention,” she said. “The Episcopal Church must use the New York Declaration to engage in advocacy with our local governments, with other Episcopalians, and with refugees and migrants themselves.”The Episcopal Church has joined with a network of nongovernmental organizations calling on member states to implement the declaration.Of the 21.3 million refugees in the world today, 1 percent might be resettled. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 1.19 million refugees will need to be resettled in 2017.On Tuesday, Sept. 20, President Barack Obama will co-host a Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, alongside Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden. The leaders’ summit will appeal to governments to pledge increased commitments to resettle refugees.The observer delegation representing Curry attended the Sept. 19 summit, advocating the following points:• Encourage campaigns and strategies to counter xenophobia and discrimination that prioritize building relationships between refugees and migrants and host communities.• Support resettlement as a critical component of responsibility-sharing and urge member states to increase size of existing resettlement programs or establish resettlement programs if they do not have one. Affirm target to resettle at least 10 percent of the global refugee population annually.• Support the right to asylum and due process for all people.• Affirm a whole of society approach that includes civil society and faith-based organizations.• Affirm the principle of “Leave No One Behind” and preferential treatment for the most vulnerable.Episcopal Migration Ministries is one of nine agencies – more than half of them faith-based – that work in partnership with the State Department to welcome and resettle refugees; this year 85,000 refugees, or new Americans, are expected to arrive in the United States. In 2017, the number is expected to reach 110,000 refugees, a 57 percent increase in arrivals since 2015.“Faith communities participate in resettlement because they recognize that, ultimately, the stories that have given life to their faith are stories of their very identity, said Allison Duvall, Episcopal Migration Ministries manager for church relations and engagement, who was also a part of the delegation. “We are all always characters in the stories of our faith, and the stories demand that we make moral choices.“Confronted with the Holy Family fleeing King Herod, are we bystanders, are we culpable and complicit? Or do we welcome? Faith communities that take scripture seriously know that the truth of scripture is not only true in the past. It’s true now. And it demands that we make the moral choice about which role we play.”In early August, Episcopal Migration Ministries joined other nongovernmental organizations that work on refugee, migration and human rights issues, in releasing a statement urging leaders gathering for the summit to affirm a few basic principles to ensure that: every refugee can access asylum from persecution; every refugee will be given the opportunity for a durable solution to his or her plight, to be and feel safe, welcome, and at home, without having to wait years for that solution; and, every refugee, displaced person, and migrant is entitled to the same human rights as everyone else.Worldwide, war and persecution have forced a total of 65.3 million people from their homes, four times more than a decade ago and the largest number of people displaced since World War II.Ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Syria, East Africa and elsewhere have led to an increased number of migrants seeking asylum in Europe, Canada and the United States. The majority of refugees live in refugee camps and cities in the Middle East and Africa.“The news reports often highlight the movement of refugees into Europe and North America, which obscures the fact that 86 percent of the world’s refugees live in developing countries. In fact, just eight countries host half of the world’s refugees. “And this isn’t fair,” said Karen Koning AbuZayd, a U.N. special advisor to the secretary general, during a Sept. 14 event at the Episcopal Church Center sponsored by Episcopal Migration Ministries.On average, half of all refugees spend a quarter century in a refugee camp before resettlement; UNHCR is responsible for 16.1 million refugees, the majority of them are living in Africa and the Middle East. (The other 5.1 million are Palestinian refugees registered by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency).The summit comes not only at a time of record numbers of refugees, but also at a time of increased discrimination and violence against immigrants and migrants. The refugee crisis has fueled nationalist movements across Europe, where fear of terrorism and xenophobia have gripped societies and have led governments to take restrictive measures. The same is true, in part, of the United States where states have introduced legislation either to ban refugees from their states or to weaken the U.S. government’s resettlement program.“In the U.S., the Episcopal Church has long been committed to the work of advocacy. The New York Declaration provides us with another tool to urge our elected officials to develop humane and compassionate migration and refugee policies. Our work continues because we are committed to making our world more like the one God envisions for us,” said Broemel.— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service. Submit a Press Release Featured Events September 26, 2016 at 11:39 am “On Tuesday, Sept. 20, President Barack Obama will co-host a Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, alongside Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden. The leaders’ summit will appeal to governments to pledge increased commitments to resettle refugees.” Why hasn’t our government worked with the local oil rich countries of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Dubai, etc… to accept any of these refugees? Makes sense, because the distance is close, the wealth of the countries is immense and countries have similar cultures. Currently, these oil rich countries accept NO refugees.

How to Raise a Healthy Eater at Every Stage of Childhood

first_img From Family FeaturesDaily food choices can have a profound impact on overall health and well-being. Not only do healthy dietary patterns help maintain good health, they also reduce the risk of chronic diseases throughout all stages of life.The United States Department of Agriculture’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020-2025 and nutrition experts agree it is vital to establish  healthy eating habits early and maintain them throughout childhood.“Research shows toddlers who eat a wide variety of foods are more likely to carry those habits into adulthood, so it’s important to introduce and reinforce healthy eating habits from the time a child starts to eat solid foods,” said Courtney Hines, KinderCare Learning Centers’ registered dietitian. “In fact, the first two years of a child’s life are often referred to as ‘the golden window’ because this is when kids are most open to trying new foods and flavors. By encouraging variety and healthy eating early in life, parents and families can dramatically reduce picky eating habits many toddlers and children develop over time while also helping their children develop balanced relationships with food they’ll carry with them into adulthood.”Consider these tips and tricks to try at home with kids of all ages to build healthy eating habits and excitement around trying new foods.BabiesWhen babies are ready for solid foods, be sure to expose them to a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods with varying flavors and textures. Start with soft foods like mashed potatoes, avocados, cooked rice and bananas until your children are ready for firmer solids.ToddlersToddlers who turns up their noses at veggies or fruit may be more open-minded if they’re an active participant in mealtime prep. Ask your children to pick one new fruit or vegetable and agree that you’ll both taste it. Asking your children to describe the appearance, texture, taste and smell of the food can also be a fun way to build vocabulary.PreschoolersAround the 2- or 3-year mark, children become interested in investigating and learning. Engage their natural curiosity in the world around them by planting a small vegetable, fruit or herb garden for your tiny chefs to tend to – it can be as simple as a windowsill garden. Gardening helps children understand where healthy, nutritious foods come from. Plus, children are more likely to eat what they’ve grown, which means more fruit and veggies in their diets.School-agersThe kitchen is chock-full of learning opportunities for all ages. School-agers can work on their math skills as they measure ingredients for recipes.“Cooking together also gives parents an opportunity to talk about nutrition in terms children can understand,” Hines said. “For example, carbohydrates, like bread, provide energy for our bodies and brains. When we eat carbohydrates, our bodies store them for later. That’s why we’re having whole-grain pancakes for breakfast, so you have the energy you need to fuel your brain and body all morning.”For more tips about building healthy eating habits with children of all ages, visit kindercare.com.

This is a residence for a family who looks for a more extensive terrain and ampler spaces, without leaving the traditional neighborhood where it has lived for almost 30 years. Located on the east side of Santiago, the main characteristics of the neighborhood are the presence of old growth trees and huge lots with houses that have a limited relation with the street.Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIORecommended ProductsDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumDoorsC.R.

This “H” form space distribution adapts well to the site form without touching the trees and creating different patios that harness their presence from the interior.Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIOThe interior spaces are organized around a native tree (Cryptocaria alba) that accompanies the access from the south. Through the hall, the presence of an enormous avocado tree (Persea americana) is framed towards the north, and a private wing towards the east is delimited by an old macrocarpa cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa) and some crape myrtles. Over the central wing, a second private level extends in all of its length, leaving on one end a terrace at the height of the tree’s crowns. On the west wing, the public spaces open towards the northern garden through a porch, and the service areas direct their view towards an ashleaf maple (Acer negundo). The wing of services extends towards the south by means of a roof with an opening that surrounds a native Crinodendron patagua that separates the closed garage from the rest of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIOThe swimming pool is located towards the west on the site´s lowest point, where the ground drop helps to conform one of its borders, articulating its presence to the rest of the garden.Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIOThe house is preceded by an extensive paved esplanade that, being requested as an open visitor’s parking area, prolongs the approach of the visitor towards the main access where the Cryptocaria alba gains a major presence.Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIOProject gallerySee allShow lessCrystal Clear / C.F.Møller Architects + Kristin Jarmund ArkitekterArticlesWalking Berlin / Fantastic NorwayArticles Share Architects: 57STUDIO Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!Courtesy of 57STUDIO+ 14 Share “COPY” ArchDaily Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/25840/fray-leon-house-57-studio Clipboard Year:  Fray Leon house / 57STUDIOSave this projectSaveFray Leon house / 57STUDIO Fray Leon house / 57STUDIO “COPY” CopyAbout this office57STUDIOOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSantiagoHousesChilePublished on July 06, 2009Cite: “Fray Leon house / 57STUDIO” 06 Jul 2009.

A residence for an individual who retired from work to spend rest of his life enjoying his hobby. The house was requested to be built simple and with low construction fee, therefore, I decided to minimize the operations and materials to achieve the maximum effect. It is built on the peaceful village of the gently-sloping ground with a few residences and wood. The wall of the house starts as a site boundary. It draws a continuous spiral and ends as the partition of a central single room, gradually changing its height.

The different experience created by the distance of each rooms and the wall enclosed by many-fold, give depth to the space and produce the rank of privacy. Though it is a small residence of about 65 square meters of total floor area, it is aimed to create an image of endlessly continuing space and depth, and also, to give the sense of security and gentle changes in environment, by being enclosed by several folds.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoProject gallerySee allShow lessConcrete Geometries Spatial Form in Social and Aesthetic ProcessesArticlesMuseum of Polish History proposal / kOnykArticles Sharelast_img read more

The search for simplicity, bowing to the canons of the past , the clear intention of using architecture as a path of territory and form of expression of “difference”… These are some of the requirements that guided the program under (intentionally or not) , much as metallic structure is common for many years, are easily countable copies directed to peripheral housing present in this town (Campo Grande/MS, even next a million people, values the “conventionality”), the geometric and strongly orthogonal character, partly, perhaps, of a controlling nature, fruit of modernism (however this is not a feature of the most admirable) or personality (for more than that is not a characteristic of the most admirable).Save this picture!© André BarbosaThe highest bidder soil binds the plot more generously on the bottom, where a glass door which accounts for almost the entire rear facade, gives access to the deck, and continuous view of the garden, the place where heaven and a yellow sculpture made with the leftovers of the metal structure (profiles ” I” Gerdau) dominate micro landscape (the particular universe). This large aperture for background contrasts sharply with the hermetic and closed front, both for privacy and solar protection, where a cloth horizontal metal of brises addresses these and other issues.Save this picture!© André BarbosaThe structure is apparent and mixed, both concrete and metal profiles are part of the aesthetic proposal, both for its inherent visual appearance and explained either by the vain and balances achieved, a game that tries to be subtle and objective.Save this picture!© André BarbosaIntegrator with a strong desire to plant boils down modulated in a large environment that splits into three basic needs: live, feed and rest, as usually happens, the furniture play a key role in setting and “fragmentation” of these spaces. The bathroom is the only room isolated, and even hydraulic wall dividing the kitchen, their access is returned to the room. 45 square meters reflect a proposed small private ambitions, few lines, few materials, environments, and a little bit of personality.Save this picture!Corte ABProject gallerySee allShow lessCenter for High Yield – Rowing Pocinho / Alvaro Fernandes AndradeSelected ProjectsNBBJ Designs Towering Shenzhen Campus for Internet GiantUnbuilt Project Share 2013 12.20 House / Alex NogueiraSave this projectSave12.20 House / Alex Nogueira Photographslast_img read more

Two friends wanted a house of their own. They bought a land and designed a house together. However, they had different family composition, different lifestyles as well as different ideas on the house.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelOne had his focus on a family of two daughters while the other, staying single, focused on his private spaces. One wanted the space to be bright and open while the other wished it to be subtle and private. One hoped the house to have a variety of spaces amusingly entangled together for the children while the other wanted spaces to be simply arranged and as spacious as possible.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelYet, they had a common problem to overcome—a size of a new house could not be larger than the houses they lived at the time. The problem was unavoidable as two different families had to share a land and a house above it. Thus, the families had to first think about and decide on an actual size of all their necessary spaces by looking at floor plans. The process made them think about something fundamental—something that they had never needed to think about when living in ‘ready-made’ houses. It also required them to adapt to the size of spaces in their new house and to shift their mind from living and thinking horizontally to vertically and three dimensionally.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!Second Floor PlanAs such, the shape of a new house was determined in a way to secure as large area as possible within the limit allowed by local regulations. First, a courtyard that would function as a parking lot was built at the center in order to keep to the building-to-land ratio. Second, a roof that slopes upward from the south to the north following the local daylight regulation created a space for a cozy attic.As a result, the house naturally exposed its bare red skin that was uncovered by the courtyard among hard layers of greish bricks with a somewhat cold but casual feeling.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelFurthermore, unlike the exterior of the same feeling, the interior of two houses placed on the right and left side of the courtyard was designed to have a different feeling and structure from a basement to an attic in order to meet their respective tastes and characteristics mentioned earlier.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelBuilding a house is a very difficult process. Above many reasons, the most apparent one would be the fact that there are too many things to decided on. Therefore, building a house for two families or two houses that look like one would definitely create enormous difficulties. Without doubt, the two friends and their families had to face many difficulties and dealt with them after endless conversations and sleepless nights which would surely go on for years ahead in their new houses.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelWe hereby deeply thank the two families who have wisely overcome all the obstacles and send our wishes and cheers for their happier lives ahead.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelProject gallerySee allShow lessA’tolan House / Create + Think Design StudioSelected ProjectsKey to Style / nendoSelected Projects Share Projects CopyAbout this officeJYA-RCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSeongnam-siSouth KoreaPublished on February 04, 2016Cite: “Pangyo House / JYA-RCHITECTS” 03 Feb 2016.
