Croker also noted that during his tenure Bell oversaw a number of acquisitions. This included a $500m deal to acquire social gaming provider Plarium in 2017, and the supplier’s $990m deal to acquire Big Fish Games from Churchill Downs Incorporated in 2018. Bell steps down as Aristocrat company secretary After six years in the job, Bell will be succeeded first by Tracey Elkerton while Aristocrat awaits full regulatory approval for his full-time replacement, Kristy Jo, to fill the role. Bell was commended for his legal expertise, and thanked for “playing an instrumental role in many of the M&A transactions that have transformed ASX in recent years” by Aristocrat chief executive Trevor Croker. 10th June 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui Aristocrat recently enjoyed positive half-year results for 2021, generating A$2.23bn (£1.27bn/€1.48bn/$1.80bn) worth of revenue. This was mostly thanks to the success of the supplier’s digital segment, which made up for a decline in machine sales because of the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the land-based gaming industry.

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. £5k to invest? I’d follow these Warren Buffett tips If you’ve £5k, or any other amount, to invest, then following Warren Buffett’s advice on money and financial planning may be a sensible decision.Indeed, Buffett is, without doubt, one of the world’s most successful investors. Over the past 70 years, he’s spent decades carefully selecting stocks and buying companies.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…And his strategy is based around a few simple tips that are quite straightforward to follow.Warren Buffett tipsHis first piece of advice is to avoid debt. This is applicable for both personal balance sheets and businesses. The most common reason why firms fail is too much debt. It’s also one of the most common reasons why people get into financial difficulty.Therefore, if you want to improve your financial position, paying off any outstanding debt, or avoiding borrowing altogether, may be the right decision. At the same time, if you’re looking for businesses to invest your hard-earned money, it might be best to avoid companies reliant on borrowing.Invest for successAt the age of 89, Buffett’s been investing for seven-and-a-half decades. He realised pretty early on that the stock market was one of the best ways to build wealth over the long run. So he started investing as a teenager. The rest is history.We can learn a lot from this approach. Over the past 100 years, UK stocks have produced an average return of 5% per annum after inflation. Stocks outperformed every other asset over this time frame.As such, if you’re looking to build your wealth over the long run, it makes sense to follow Buffett and buy stocks. While he picks stocks himself, he also advocates buying an index fund. This may be the best option if you don’t have the time to research lots of individual companies.Hold cashHistory shows that buying stocks at low levels generates the best returns over the long run. Buffett swears by this approach. That’s why he likes to have a lot of cash ready to take advantage of opportunities. Right now, the billionaire investor has about $130bn of cash ready to invest in attractive opportunities.The average investor may not have anywhere near as much money, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn from this approach.Having cash on hand ready to take advantage of opportunities and provide a cushion in uncertain times, is very sensible. With that in mind, it may be best to only invest what you can afford and leave several months of cash in a savings account.This would provide dry power to take advantage of attractive investment opportunities if there’s another stock market crash. It would also provide cash to cover living expenses in an economic downturn.The tips from Buffett won’t make you a millionaire overnight, but they could put you on the path to financial freedom in the long run.

Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Comité de Solidaridad] Seis semanas después de la ronda de consultas del presidente Danilo Medina a sectores políticos y religiosos y a casi ocho meses de la infausta sentencia 168-13 del Tribunal Constitucional (TC), es tiempo más que suficiente para que se materialice la solución humanitaria y acorde con los principios fundamentales de la Constitución y el derecho internacional que ha sido reiteradas veces prometida. Por encima de toda consideración está el sufrimiento y daño causado a decenas de miles de personas que tienen suspendidos sus derechos fundamentales.1.- En primer lugar debemos señalar que este Comité de Solidaridad está constituido por más de 500 dominicanos y dominicanas de diversos sectores sociales con el objetivo de contribuir a una solución humana que reivindique los derechos constitucionales y los compromisos de la nación con los preceptos fundamentales del derecho internacional, con ánimo de entendimiento y respeto de la diversidad, no para estimular la confrontación, la exclusión y el odio que algunos tratan de sembrar.2.- En cumplimiento de ese objetivo hemos tocado todas las puertas donde podíamos encontrar interlocutores, desde el presidente de la República y sus más cercanos colaboradores, al presidente del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana, el expresidente de la República Leonel Fernández, hasta el liderazgo político, empresarial, religioso y social. Es relevante que en todos ha habido comprensión sobre la justeza y necesidad de una solución que restituya los derechos conculcados, aunque por diversos caminos. Ello incluye a los dos mayores líderes del partido gobernante y que tiene absoluta mayoría en las cámaras legislativas, y de manera relevante a todos los líderes empresariales y religiosos con los que hemos conversado.3.- Vale precisar que en la reunión que sostuvimos con el doctor Leonel Fernández hace cinco semanas, él nos informó de un consenso que había alcanzado con el presidente Medina para reconocer mediante ley las actas de nacimiento registradas por los oficiales del Estado Civil antes de la sentencia 168-13, lo que revocaría las desnacionalizaciones. Aunque compartiendo los criterios del TC que las ha considerado improcedentes, entiende que no se puede hacer pagar el “error del Estado” a personas que no han intervenido en su materialización.4.- Seguimos sosteniendo que la sentencia viola una docena de preceptos constitucionales y reiteramos nuestra preferencia por una solución dominicana al conflicto originado por la circular 12-07 de la JCE y la sentencia del TC, partiendo del planteamiento del numeral 2 del Artículo 18 de la Constitución que reconoce la ciudadanía a “quienes gocen de la nacionalidad dominicana antes de la entrada en vigencia de esta Constitución”, así como del Artículo 110 de la misma Constitución que ratifica el principio jurídico de la no retroactividad de la ley: “En ningún caso los poderes públicos o la ley podrán afectar la seguridad jurídica derivada de situaciones establecidas conforme a una legislación anterior”.5.- Sin embargo, si somos incapaces de hacer prevalecer los principios constitucionales en torno a los derechos de la nacionalidad de los nacidos en el país antes de la Constitución del 2010 que cambió el marco jurídico al respecto, tenemos la posibilidad de apelar a una opinión consultiva de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH), prevista en el artículo 72 de su reglamento y en el 64 de la Convención Americana de los Derechos Humanos, instrumentos ratificados por el Estado dominicano y que son parte del bloque de constitucionalidad de acuerdo con el artículo 74.3 de la Constitución de la República.6. La prolongación de este grave conflicto solo sirve para que la nación dominicana siga siendo cuestionada en todos los ámbitos del derecho internacional y sigamos recibiendo acusaciones de xenofobia y racismo de organismos y organizaciones, así como de medios de comunicación social de todo el mundo. Esos cuestionamientos, en vez de disminuir como algunos esperaban, han estado en permanece crecimiento con el paso de los meses. Con el agravante de que al final nos espera un dictamen revocatorio y vinculante de la CIDH considerado inevitable a la luz de su jurisprudencia, especialmente por la sentencia del 2005 sobre el caso Yan y Bosico.7.- Como planteamos en comunicado del 29 de noviembre, “La superación de este conflicto, que ha dividido profundamente a la sociedad dominicana, permitirá centrar la atención en la recién presentada propuesta de “Plan Nacional de Regularización de Extranjeros en Situación Migratoria Irregular”, discutido durante casi dos años. Esta propuesta parece más realista y viable, y supera considerablemente las dos versiones anteriores. La misma contempla las medidas fundamentales para iniciar el control de la desproporcionada inmigración haitiana. Saludamos este esfuerzo normativo que deberá proseguirse con otros de carácter nacional y bilaterales, al tiempo que reclamamos que no se le contamine pretendiendo ahora aplicarlo a nacionales dominicanos, nacidos en el país, como ocurre en el Párrafo del Artículo 8 del Proyecto.”Superemos definitivamente este diferendo y permitamos que el gobierno concentre toda su atención en los grandes propósitos que presentó al electorado hace dos años.-Santo Domingo, 13 de mayo del 2014.Equipo de CoordinaciónMiguel Ceara Hatton Carmen Amelia CedeñoJuan Bolívar Díaz Mons.

Strong vertical fragmentation was another requirement, as was a broken skyline. As requested, the south facade features large six- to ten-metre openings, which are integrated by the vertical fragmentation. The volumes are split vertically by planted breaks. These clean-cut spaces structure the organisation of the ground plan and create a transparency between the terraces and the Promenade des Provinces Françaises.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyAlong the latter, the carved-up volumes are structured into two levels, one – lower – at the level of one of the local roads and the other – higher – at the level of Avenue des Terrasses. The lower section of the buildings forms a single cohesive structure, unifying the whole and providing a solid basis for the vertical landscape. The verticals are accentuated by the use of contrasting materials for the south facade and the inner surfaces of the breaks.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyIn fact the south facade has a continuous glazed outer layer that forms a glasshouse in winter and provides ventilation in summer. This glazing turns partially inwards towards the bottom of the facade, initiating the passage from one urban space to the other. The assembled volumes, with their vertical, horizontal and transverse planes, form a landscape that is fragmented to a greater or lesser degree but nevertheless cohesive in its diversity.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe whole seems hewn, sculpted out of one material. The urban silhouette is broken against the background of the sky: each volume is just as high as it needs to be. This is a system born of multiplicity and the recognition of individuality …Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyBackgrounds can be seen through the breaks, illustrating the depth of the block, evoking the next street, telling of other dissected volumes that together create the new urban feel desired by the town planners: a many-faceted, human town that dreams of having a skyline like any major city.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyFACADES AND MATERIALSThe facades vary according to their orientation and situation. The double skin of the south facade optimises passive solar gain and the overhanging slabs serve the same purpose as awnings, protecting the interior from the sun. This glazed layer – composed of “nako”-type adjustable horizontal slats – unifies the volume of the building. The slatted windows give substance to the facade, like a taut veil drawn across the occupational diversity of these spaces. So everyone can express coherently a clear individuality whilst preserving the general harmony.Save this picture!The double skin transforms the facade into a living space, increasing the usage value of the apartments. A glasshouse in winter, a ventilated space in summer, this will invite occupants to experiment with secondary crops at home as part of a personal environmental initiative. The future inhabitants of these apartments will be pioneers of the new way of living. Towards the bottom of the building, this double skin turns back to become one with the facade, forming a cantilevered volume extending towards the square and accentuating the horizontality of the levels.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyColoured openings animate this homogenous skin, a manifestation of its substance. Through their free and random arrangement, they symbolically express the diversity of individual lives and paths. Their depth and thickness vary depending on the facade, their usage value residing mainly in their suitability for sunny conditions. Their warm, dynamic hue responds to the red volumes of the neighbouring buildings. They are cheerful and create a strong identity for the building, asserting it as the habitat of the future for the new breed of town dweller. The west, east and north facades are clad in precast concrete lazured to give a clear pearly effect. They contrast subtly with the south facade. The load-bearing shear walls are of silvery concrete.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyLOGGIAS, TERRACES, AND A NEW WAY OF LIVINGThe new town dwellers of today aspire to the outdoors, the sun and the wind, to getting back in touch with the world of plants and helping in their own way to improve the environment. Loggia-glasshouses increase the surface area of the apartments, allowing them to benefit from free calories in winter and providing protection from the wind. They also provide an opportunity to experiment with genuine individual off-ground crops.Save this picture!The loggias serve as internal / external areas of transition and as such, provide an opportunity to move around from room to room by different routes. They also help to mitigate noise and improve thermal management. Experiments carried out on urban roofs in Cuba serve as the inspiration for green terraces on the seventh floor, which will provide kitchen gardens for apartments with no south-facing facade or loggia. Colourful terraces offer sheltered outdoor areas in hollows in the facades.Project gallerySee allShow less’Emerging Realities’ International Student WorkshopArticles’Urban Sponge’ Competition Entry / Gemawang Swaribathoro + Indra Nugraha + Morian Sa…ArticlesProject locationAddress:NanterreLocation to be used only as a reference.

Howard Lake | 8 February 2008 | News Jenny, a 31 year old with asthma, comments: ‘I developed severe asthma when I was 18. Until then I guess I had the usual view – that somebody with asthma just felt a bit wheezy now and then and needed to use an inhaler. Now I’ve seen it from the other side as I fight for breath each day, frequently being admitted to hospital. Asthma is deadly serious’.

Anything which helps people to function and live a normal life with asthma is a Good Thing. I offer my wholehearted support to Asthma UK.’ Asthma UK is launching a media campaign called ‘Don’t Wait’ to highlight the true danger of asthma and raise vital funds to support research into the causes and treatment of the condition which affects 1 in 5 households in the UK.The nation-wide integrated campaign, which launches on Monday 11 February, uses the Don’t Wait message to urge people Don’t Wait to fund research today that could save lives tomorrow and features in national press adverts and inserts, web adverts, direct mail, PR activity and a microsite www.dont-wait.org To make a donation, visit www.dont-wait.org or for further information about Asthma UK, visit our website www.asthma.org.uk. Advertisement The campaign, which follows a successful DRTV campaign, aims to make more people aware of how serious asthma can be. In fact more people die each year of asthma than cervical cancer and testicular cancer combined and a shocking 2.6 million people in the UK live on a knife edge because of difficult to control asthma. Sadly, they face frequent hospital visits or can be stuck in their own homes, trapped by breathlessness. Neil Churchill, Asthma UK Chief Executive comments: ‘Asthma UK is one of the UK’s major funders of asthma research, spending more than the Government in this area, yet each year we are unable to support all of the high-quality research proposals we receive due to lack of funds. Tragically every 7 hours a person dies following an asthma attack, but with regular donations Asthma UK can continue to fund vital research projects and bring about the breakthroughs that could save lives.’ Ends Asthma UK highlight true danger of the condition Tagged with: Digital Individual giving About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
