This, the operator noted, led to faster than expected growth in net betting and gaming revenue, which was up 12.4% year-on-year at €58.7m.Due to the lack of a major sporting event in 2019, marketing expenses over the six months fell 21.2% to €16.7m. However, the operator remains committed to increasing brand awareness through international advertising campaigns across TV, print and online, supported by sponsorship deals and bonus promotions. As of 30 June, the operator had more than 5.1m registered customers, up marginally from 5.0m in the prior year.The decline in expenses and increase in revenue saw the operator’s earnings for the period soar. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) almost doubled, growing 95.4% year-on-year to €21.3m. Earnings before tax (EBT) amounted to €20.4m, an increase of 98.1% from H1 2018. The operator did not release comprehensive earnings figures, however. Looking ahead, bet-at-home’s management board is projecting full-year revenue of between €130m and €143m in 2019, assuming there are no changes to the tax and regulatory environment in which it operates.This would represent a decline on the €143.4m generated in the operator’s 2018 financial year. This projected decline was attributed to legal uncertainty in the Swiss market, where a new regulatory framework in which only land-based operators are permitted to operate online came into force from 1 January. EBITDA for the year is expected to fall between €29m and €33m.

first_imgThursday Apr 15, 2010 School of Hard Knocks 2010 – Episode 1 Last year the School of Hard Knocks went to North Wales where a hardened group of troublesome youths were taught the values and skills needed to be part of a rugby team. This year, the fascinating show is based in London and runs as a full length series. Former British & Irish Lions legends Will Greenwood and Scott Quinnell are back to play their part as mentors to the group of unemployed young men who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, most of whom had never played rugby. Over a period of eight weeks, Quinnell and Greenwood face the challenge of channelling the energy and aggression of the guys into the sport, helping them grow as both a team and as individuals who can get off the street and make a proper life for themselves. This year the show is far edgier and offers more insight into the process, with plenty of incidents and many life-changing moments for the young guys, both on and off the field. Posted here today is the first episode of the series, broken up into three parts. The first episode introduces us to the group as they themselves get introduced to rugby. A phone gets stolen along the way, they learn a few new dance moves, and they get an inspirational talk from boxer Mark Prince. Its just over twenty minutes in total, and well worth getting into as later on a few stars are born, a player takes on Greenwood, and the team nail their job interviews. More episodes will be posted over the next few weeks if the response is positive, so let us know what you think of the series, and the concept on a whole. Part 1 is at the top.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error School of Hard Knocks Related Articles 384 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 4, The… 386 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 3 389 WEEKS AGO School of Hard Knocks 2013 – Episode 2 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

For a Spanish architect, to build a house in Mexico is a privilege. To build a house in Monterrey is a gift. To build the TEC lottery house in Monterrey is amazing. And, logically, I did my utmost to ensure that this house would be the most beautiful in the world. That is my stated intent with every new project that falls into my hands.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasAnd of course, if Barragán is always present in all my architecture, he is even more in this case, which is why I decided that not only would my house be flooded with light, but that it would be the golden light of Barragán.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasSave this picture!© Javier CallejasWith this in mind, after creating a diagonal space resulting from concatenating two spaces of double height, I decided to gild the high vertical wall on which all the southern light would fall and fill it with this much-coveted golden hue.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasAccordingly this light-filled house would be literally flooded with golden light, and thus become a veritable DOMUS AUREA.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!1st FloorIn functional terms, the house is divided into three planes.

PivotText description provided by the architects. Under the rapid urbanization, cities in Vietnam have diverged far from their origins of being low density tropical green spaces. Newly developed urban areas are losing their connection with nature. “Bamboo House” is a small residential project in a narrow alley called “Hem” in Ho-Chi-Minh City. This project aims at developing the concept of “House for Trees”, a series of a prototypical housing design that targets to provide green space within high density neighborhood. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki Oki In Vietnam, there are countless narrow alleys called “Hem”. They are 2-3m wide, with similar, narrow, and long buildings running along both it’s sides, resembling a ravine. The lanes are lined with imposing forms, and their cold facades give the street a dense and weighty aura. The windows are mostly kept closed to ensure their privacy. Save this picture!With this in mind, ‘Bamboo house’, has been designed to create a comfortable living space in spite of the limited area available. The site is dense and narrow, with only 2 sides to allow natural ventilation and light into the building. The front facade is playful with planter boxes located at random points, creating interest and a more welcoming entrance.Save this picture!SectionThe client’s love for bamboo and its’ high relevance to Asian context resulted in a facade covered with bamboo plantations. In addition, the planter boxes that pop out from the front facade form deep eaves that allow the windows to be kept open even during the rainy season. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiTowards the back end of the house, the design incorporates a semi-open staircase which is enveloped by creepers, allowing the branches and the leaves to function as a buffer layer that cut out direct flow of sunlight. Moreover, it also creates a comfortable distance between the neighborhoods. This is evidently visible in the bedroom that is close to the open bathroom and staircase.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe front and the back facade are mostly open, wrapped with greenery, allowing cool wind to pass through the house. As a result, the use of air con in the house has considerably reduced. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki Oki In addition to growing bamboo on the front facade, the concrete formwork is also made by using bamboo to allow a consistent design language. The bamboo texture also helps to reduce the intense and heavy appearance of conventional concrete wall and thus, improves the overall aesthetic quality of the house.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiThe client expresses, ‘I wake up to the sound of birds chirruping every morning, as the plantations attract them. My home feels like a jungle in the middle of a bustling city. The green spaces also keeps the house cool at all times, reducing the usage of air conditioner. The space also feels larger because of the large openings on 2 sides.’Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Level 1 PlanSave this picture!Level 2 PlanSave this picture!Level 3 PlanSave this picture!Level 4 Plan This project provides a solution to create a comfortable and open living space that is surrounded by green in a highly dense and small site.

Judy Chu (CA-27), voted with 265 other Democratic and Republican Members of Congress to pass H.R. 1314, a bipartisan budget agreement that would lift sequester spending caps and avoid a default on the U.S. debt for the next two years. Rep. Chu released the following statement:Yesterday, I voted to restore smart budgeting and sensible governing. The dangerous sequester, which was never intended to be law in the first place, made arbitrary cuts to our government that denied after school programs to nearly 1.2 million children, prevented more than 4 million meals from being delivered to sick and homebound seniors, and cut more than 30,000 jobs for teachers and school staff. By ending the sequester and raising spending limits, we can finally return to a budget that reflects our priorities. This bipartisan budget will enable investments in education and R&D, and prevents a major increase in Medicare Part B premiums that would have effected millions of seniors in 2016.“And by raising the debt ceiling, we are putting an end to the dangerous pattern of governing by crisis. The faith and credit of the United States is not a bargaining chip. We have had enough of the irresponsible tactics that bring us to the edge of default only to result in a short term solution. I am pleased that we were able to come together to reach a bipartisan solution that will let us get back to the work of supporting jobs and opportunities for the American people.”H.R. 1314, Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, will now move to the Senate for passage.

A hospital which renders free services to a certain category of patients, while providing services which are charged to the bulk of others would not lie outside the purview of the jurisdiction of the consumer fora, the bench comprising of Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and KM Joseph said.In this case, the complainant alleged medical negligence against Sarvodaya Hospital and Safdarjung Hospital. The District Forum dismissed this complaint against both these hospitals. As regards Safdarjung Hospital, the complaint was held not to be maintainable on the ground that treatment had been afforded free of cost to the patient. The State Commission, though upheld the non-maintainability of the complaint as against Safdarjung Hospital, found that Sarvodaya Hospital was guilty of medical negligence and directed it to pay a sum of Rs 2,00,000 as compensation. Allowing the revision petition filed by Sarvodaya Hospital, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission that the finding of the SCDRC that Safdarjung Hospital was not amenable to the jurisdiction of the consumer fora was contrary to the decision of the Supreme Court in Indian Medical Association v V P Shantha 1995 SCC (6) 651 It held that though the complainant had not filed a revision against the order of the SCDRC specifically holding that Safdarjung Hospital was not amenable to the jurisdiction of the consumer fora, he was not precluded from challenging a finding which was adverse to him in the revision petition. On these facts, the NCDRC sustained the finding of medical negligence against Safdarjung Hospital and directed it to pay compensation quantified at Rs 2 lakhs. Referring to Section 2(1) (o) of the Act and also the judgment in Indian Medical Association, the court said: “Interpreting the above provision, a three judge Bench of this Court held that it is only where a hospital provides medical services free of charge across the board to all patients that it would stand outside the purview of the Act. The Court held that a hospital which renders free services to a certain category of patients, while providing for services which are charged to the bulk of others would not lie outside the purview of the jurisdiction of the consumer fora. It noted the following observations made in Indian Medical Association: “”43…The third category of doctors and hospitals do provide free service to some of the patients belonging to the poor class but the bulk of the service is rendered to the patients on payment basis. The expenses incurred for providing free service are met out of the income from the service rendered to the paying patients. The service rendered by such doctors and hospitals to paying patients undoubtedly fall within the ambit of Section 2(1) (o) of the Act.” But the court noted that there is no factual material placed on the record to enable it to decide on whether the Hospital satisfies the tests enunciated in Indian Medical Association. Therefore, while dismissing the appeal, the court left open the issue as to whether 8 Safdarjung Hospital would be governed by the provisions of the Act, more particularly, having regard to the provisions of Section 2(1)(o), to be decided in an appropriate case. The court also left open the issue whether the NCDRC can at all exercise in revisional proceedings the powers which have been conferred on an appellate court under Order XLI Rule 33 of the Code of Civil Procedure 1908?  Note: Though the applicable law in this case was Consumer Protection Act,1986, the new Consumer Protection Act,2019, has adapted the same definition for the term ‘service’.
