Playtech revamps content aggregation offering

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 9th January 2019 | By contenteditor The Playtech Open Platform (POP) content aggregation service has relaunched following an extensive revamp, with the gaming solutions provider having promised greater choice and functionality for developers and operator clients. As part of the enhancements, Playtech has now directly connected POP with its Marketplace – effectively an app store for games – while POP has also been integrated with the provider’s IMS back-office player management and marketing platform.POP will sit alongside the Gaming Platform As Service (GPAS) content design and game building tools for developers.A Playtech spokesperson told iGamingBusiness.com that by bringing the game identification, management and development operations into the same place, the company has created an “ecosystem” that will simplify the content aggregation process.The enhanced POP, which is now live and available to Playtech licensees, provides operators with access to a growing library of games from suppliers including IGT, Red Tiger and Blueprint.“Third-party content access and integration has been a headache for operators for a long time,” said Peter Mares (pictured), chief technology officer of Playtech’s Games Innovation Labs unit. “POP will transform the whole experience, and its integration with other technologies will be of great benefit.”Buzz Bingo, which rebranded from Gala Bingo last year, is among several operators that now has access to the enhanced POP service.Last year the company agreed a deal with Playtech covering content delivery across bingo and casino verticals, as well as access to the IMS tools, which are linked to Playtech’s Engagement Centre – where operators can executive various player management tasks.Buzz Bingo CEO Chris Matthews said: “The new platform takes us to the next level and will allow us to deliver a significantly enhanced player journey across both retail and digital.” Tags: Online Gambling Tech & innovation Playtech revamps content aggregation offeringcenter_img Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Tech & innovation Playtech Open Platform is integrated with other technologies to create “ecosystem”last_img read more

Den gracias por la presencia de Dios encarnado entre nosotros”.El mensaje de la Obispa Presidente en vídeo está aquí: http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/presiding-bishopAsimismo, señaló que, “En este tiempo de Pascua les animo a que miren dónde encuentran una nueva vida y resurrección, y dónde surge en sus vidas y las de sus comunidades una vida abundante y amor encarnado”.Lo siguiente es una transcripción del mensaje de Pascua de 2012 de la Obispa Presidente.Pascua de 2012Uno de mis himnos favoritos de Pascua trata del verdor.Ahora sale la verde hoja; surge del grano enterradoSigue hablando del amor que viene de nuevo. Es para mí un recordatorio de la manera cómo nuestras imágenes de la Pascua están centradas en el hemisferio norte. Hablamos de verdor y de una nueva vida y de la vida que brota de la tierra, cuando hablamos de la resurrección.A menudo me pregunto qué imágenes de la Pascua hay en el hemisferio sur, y creo que la iglesia del sur tiene al respecto algo que enseñarnos.Me encontraba en Japón hace más o menos un mes, y visitaba la zona de Japón que fue tan afectada por el tsunami y las consecuencias del terremoto. La tierra es – era en ese momento – casi descolorida, marrón, en medio del invierno. No verde. Pero, al mismo tiempo la labor de la Nippon Sei Ko Kai, la iglesia anglicana en esa parte de Japón, ha creado una gran cantidad de nueva vida, vida abundante para las personas que han sido devastadas y desplazadas, que todavía están de luto por la pérdida de sus seres queridos, la pérdida de hogares y de empleo.La nueva vida surge de muchas formas, incluso en las estaciones que parecen bastante invernales.Cuando comenzamos la Cuaresma, les pedí que pensasen en los Objetivos del Milenio para el Desarrollo y en nuestra tarea durante la Cuaresma como una reorientación de nuestras vidas. Estoy encantada de poder decirles que el informe de la ONU en este último año ha mostrado un logro importante en un par de esos objetivos, en particular en términos de la reducción de las tasas de la peor pobreza, y en el logro de un mejor acceso al agua potable y un mejor acceso a la educación primaria. En realidad, podríamos alcanzar esos objetivos para el año 2015. Eso deja una serie de otros objetivos, así como lo que hay más allá de los objetivos hacia un acceso pleno de todas las personas a una  vida abundante.En esta estación de Pascua, les animo a que miren dónde encuentran una nueva vida y resurrección, y dónde surge en sus vidas y las de sus comunidades una vida abundante y amor encarnado. En realidad hay verdor en cualquier estación.Den gracias por la Pascua.  Den gracias por la Resurrección. Den gracias por la presencia de Dios encarnado entre nosotros.La Rvdma.

As a newly established design practice, architects from Atelier Tao+C confronted a need of combining living and working in one place with low cost. On the ground floor of an anonymous 80s housing, we found a small residence with obsolete interior furnishings, the plot is narrow and long, measures 3.3 x 14.5 meters, with a backyard less than 6 sqm. We rent and transformed it into a studio. 8 months later, the room next door in similar layout which belongs to another owner was emptied out, we also rent it and connected with the former one by eliminating a wall in between the backyards. In the whole process, we seek to find a way to accommodate new possibilities of use and occupation, to make light touch and adjustments with humble materials, to maintain flexibility of interior space and grow along with the pattern of neighborhood, to shed light on the spatial strangeness found within mundane housing typologies.Save this picture!© Su Sheng LiangMakeA living box made of MDF was inserted at the north end. It is compact – 3.6 x 1.7 meters – yet adequate and comfortable to live, in which the necessary functions – bed/shelves/hidden closet/table/reading lamp/window with operable panels/a seat nearby the window were elaborately combined together.Save this picture!AxonometricBy compressing the living into such an object, leave us more flexible and changeable space for working. The space is articulated with a united shelf – track system which growing from the bedroom, wrapping around the light shaft, concealing the small kitchen and bathroom behind and extending toward the backyard. The pine shelves are grid in tongue and groove connection, the tracks are customized with zinc coated steel which works as light tunnel as well as playful tracks for sliding doors and curtains.Save this picture!© Su Sheng LiangThe size and depth of backyard became problematic, it’s too small and too close to the road, we need to figure out a way to enlarge it without touching the walls and not losing indoor space which is already tight. We carried out with A hollow box with slim wood frames sitting half inside half outside, brought the backyard in and meanwhile allowed light to penetrate into the heart of room. It appears to be a bewildering space which is both outside-in and inside-out. The itinerary of moving from a solid serenity box to an open garden, resting at the negative space, reminiscing a familiar Asian space typology – Engawa. While the thin frames and glass also evoke an alien and surreal moment.Save this picture!AxonometricHalf year later, the backyard went through a growing. The wall in between two yards was removed. Applied with the same material and language of the former box, a convex glass room extruded from the next residence. The two boxes- one open, one closed, formed a conversation in open air. The inside of next room was used as library and meeting room and installed with the same shelves and tracks. The route of walking through two residences in-out-in, is an experience of light and air.Save this picture!© Su Sheng LiangThe process of making, take form from inside and grow to the fabric of building, suggested a mode of dwelling and working in tune with the modern condition of changeability and transparency.Save this picture!© Chen HaoProject gallerySee allShow less[GOL]KHANEH House / SHABOFFICESelected ProjectsFrancis Artisan Bakery / Willis Kusuma ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882153/architects-studio-atelier-tao-plus-c Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882153/architects-studio-atelier-tao-plus-c Clipboard Area:  77 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

US soldier charged for leaking video showing US army war crime

first_imgNews April 28, 2021 Find out more United StatesAmericas June 7, 2021 Find out more Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old US army intelligence analyst, was charged yesterday with leaking a video of a US army helicopter attack in Baghdad in July 2007 in which two employees of the Reuters news agency were killed. Currently held in a US military detention centre in Kuwait, he is accused of divulging confidential information, a US army release said.Posted on the Wikileaks website on 5 April 2010, the video shows the helicopter crew killing 12 civilians including Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and his driver Said Chmagh, 40. When posting the video on its site, Wikileaks said it had come from unspecified “military sources.”Reuters filed a formal request in 2007 for access to documents that would explain the death of its employees. It did so under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which obliges federal government agencies to release documents to all persons requesting them unless specifically exempted by the law. Reuters did not however obtain any documents.The charging of Manning, who holds the rank of private, comes just a few days after defence secretary Robert Manning circulated a memo to senior officers and civilians within the defence department saying they had “grown lax” in their relations with the media. Manning’s plight revives the debate about the Pentagon’s perceived lack of transparency and highlights the problem for the authorities of complying with the FOIA.“If this young soldier had not leaked the video, we would have had no evidence of what was clearly a serious abuse on the part of the US military,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Respect for military regulations should not be at the Freedom of Information Act’s expense. The US defence department should not hide behind rules in order to openly practice acts of censorship and thereby deny the public’s fundamental right of access to information.”The Freedom of Information Act was adopted in 1966 in response to a public desire during the Vietnam War for access to US government documents, without any exception. Many restrictions were applied during the Reagan presidency, especially as a result of misuse of Exemption No. 1, concerning national security.“We hope the Obama administration will not violate the law in a similar manner and will display more honesty and transparency when it comes to respecting the right of access to information, a fundamental right of every individual in a society that claims to be democratic,” Reporters Without Borders added.

That is all we have permitted; to allow this avenue to be explored with real consultation and consideration for many factors including environment, traffic and noise pollution,” said the Adare-Rathkeale representative.“If this proposal is deemed inadequate on any condition within the planning process or the EPA and it does not meet the strict conditions then this proposal does not go ahead the land is returned to the council, the landfill remains closed and monitored for the future.”Cllr McMahon insisted that no one will ever dismiss the greatly impacted quality of life for residents in the area, upon the initial creation of a landfill which was later developed into a super dump.“All residents suffered whether it was from rodents, traffic congestion or from the strong stale smell from the dump. I will never diminish the suffering of anyone regarding the dump. This lease will be null and void if this company fail to make the standards expected by planning authority or environmental protection authority.”The Sinn Fein politician also admitted that she regrets not pushing forward on a public meeting before now, even on an informal basis, for families living in the area.“As an elected representative for this area, it was brought to my attention in September 2014 during this initial meeting I asked for a public meeting regarding this proposal. It was deemed at the time that there was not enough information regarding the proposal. I again asked in October/ November for a public meeting.“No one will deny this is an opportunity for the area but the Gortadroma area and surrounding parishes are populated by many young families and many families scarred by the history of the dump. As an area we have asked for a public meeting that Cadence EnviroPower speak with residents and show their proposal to the area and speak openly about what they propose to do in the area. This needs to happen sooner rather then later so that this company can stand before the people and answer all the questions regarding this proposal,” she concluded.
