Incidentally, all operators that put forward an application only did so in the days leading up to the cut-off date or on the deadline itself. Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment, operator of the Parx Casino, which generated $570m last year, was the first to register its application with the PGCB on July 12.Parx has already teamed up with GAN, having signed a partnership to offer Simulated Gaming in 2015.Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN, said: “Parx Casino and GAN have collaborated well for three years, developing a close working relationship by operating Simulated Gaming online. Launching regulated real money Internet gaming in Pennsylvania is a logical extension of our existing long-term relationship and we welcome the opportunity to deliver excellence in technology and product, as we have for our clients in New Jersey.”Stadium Casino, which will run the new Live! Hotel and Casino Philadelphia, and Mount Airy Casino Resort operator Mount Airy #1 lodged their petitions on July 13. Sands Bethworks Gaming (Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem), Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association (Hollywood Casino), Valley Forge Convention Center Partners (Valley Forge Casino Resort), Chester Downs and Marina (Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino & Racetrack), Holdings Acquisition Co. (Rivers Casino) and Sugarhouse HSP Gaming (SugarHouse Casino) filed applications on deadline day. Should the licence gain approval, each applicant will be able to offer non-peer-to-peer interactive games in the form of slot machines and table games, as well as peer-to-peer interactive poker games. These combined licences will set each of the nine operators back $10m (€8.6m), while other companies wanting to offer online gaming can now lodge a petition to conduct all three or some of the categories of games will face a licence fee of $4m. Despite Pennsylvania moving forward with its online gambling plans, having announced the move to legalise the sector in October last year, there is still a lack of interest in sports betting in the state. Last year, the state passed a sports betting law prior to the Supreme Court’s on PASPA in May this year. However, Pennsylvania has yet to receive any applications for a licence, with many in the industry citing high tax rates as the main reason behind this. Operator wanting to offer sports betting in the state would face a licence fee of $10m, in addition to a tax rate of 36%. The state did earlier this year also legalise daily fantasy sports and has received a number of applications from various operators, including FanDuel and DraftKings.Image: Parx Casino/Instagram Nine casinos apply for Penn online licences Regions: US Pennsylvania Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Email Addresslast_img read more

With a design centred around the creation of an intimate yet expansive garden sanctuary holding layers of seamlessly linked living spaces, this project represents a concentration of the key architectural philosophies which recur in the studio’s larger civic projects: the importance of elegant meditative environments characterised by fluidity and a fusion between exterior and interior spaces, a deep respect for existing structures, the history and potential of a site, and the imperative for a design to be harmonious with the wider natural and human surrounds.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoThanks to the open and supportive relationship between the studio and the client, this project presented a unique opportunity to explore, on a human scale, the studio’s defining interests.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoChallengesThe original site consisted of around 2,000 square metres of broadly triangular-shaped land with a 1930s single-story bungalow of around 300 square metres built of brick masonry with a wooden frame, flat roof tiles and interior teak flooring. Originally built for an English civil servant, the house is on the national conservation listing. As a result, no additional building could be added to the existing structure and a certain distance was required to buffer the original house from any new construction.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanAt the same time, the brief required 700 sqm of new living spaces including common areas, a music room, 6 bedrooms to serve three generations, and a pool. Key challenges of the design, then, were to transform the unusual land shape and spatial/conservation limitations of the existing site into a beautiful house able to combine many diverse living areas filling the greater part of the land with a sense of expansiveness and spatial harmony which is a signature of studio Milou.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoA House of Views33 Holland Park is also a house of views. From each of the house’s hallways and common areas are views which traverse and link one space to another, whether from one wing of the new house to another, or between the main residence and the conservation house. Large glass windows frame.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoA Garden HomeThe intense foliage at every opportunity, offering a warm palette of rich greens beside the stone and polished Burmese teak of the floors and walls. From the landscaped roof of the new building are tree-top views of surrounding houses, and in turn, neighbours enjoy views of Holland Park’s verdure, which discreetly contains the monumental nature of the design.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier Urquijo A Transparent ParaventstudioMilou’s project overcame the limits imposed by the land’s shape and the existing conservation house with a design giving a sense of transparency and fluidity between the old and new buildings, between interior and exterior. To achieve this, the outer wall of the new structure is a paravent-like wall system, consisting of rising screens opening onto a walkway which winds around the site, with both borders lined with lush vegetation that appears to venture both into the house on one side, and over the neighbouring properties on the other. A feeling that the house expands into the garden, and that the garden inhabits the house is accentuated by the closeness of plants to the house’s closed surfaces. Dense foliage caresses the many glass surfaces of the house, and towers to the second-floor spaces.Save this picture!SketchA discreet welcome, a private place Upon entering the house from the driveway, the visitor is unaware of the almost monumental scale of the new house, covered as it is by vegetation and carefully designed proportions aimed at avoiding any stark comparison with the one-storey conservation house. To further unify the two buildings, the conservation house serves as the key reception area and kitchen, through which one passes to the new residence, the door of which is aligned with the exit of the former. A rectangular pool lines one outer wall of the new house, with water and green-grey tiles softening the visual links between the conservation house and the new structures. The simplicity of the conservation house’s interior – white ceilings and walls, uncluttered furnishings – adds to a sense of openness towards the exterior and the paravent form of the new building walls, which seem to encompass the historic house in a protective manner. It is only when inside the new residence that the largesse of its design gradually becomes apparent.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoUnifying Materials, ColoursAnother approach common to studioMilou’s work is the restricted use of materials and colours. Accordingly, the materials chosen for the exterior, including grey glass-reinforced concrete columns and stainless steel, have been composed in such a way as to play with the colours of the vegetation and to accentuate the impression of an architecture which is transparent and in conversation with the trees and light. The reflections and movement of the pool’s water, set off by the soft grey-green stone tiles, contribute to the play of light and life, and seem to belong equally to both houses. Sharing light wall colours and the warm glow of Burmese teak floors, the interiors of both buildings offer calm backgrounds for the ever-present plants whose foliage reaches towards and into the house from all angles.Save this picture!© Fernando Javier UrquijoProject gallerySee allShow lessVerdun Memorial Museum / Brochet-Lajus-Pueyo + Le-Conte NoirotSelected ProjectsSFMOMA Expansion / SnøhettaSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/786686/33-holland-park-studiomilou-architecture Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/786686/33-holland-park-studiomilou-architecture Clipboard 33 Holland Park / studioMilou architectureSave this projectSave33 Holland Park / studioMilou architecture Year:  Houses “COPY” 33 Holland Park / studioMilou architecture last_img read more

Baltimore civil rights activists acquitted

first_imgFollowing is a statement released Jan. 22 by Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly representatives Rev. Cortly “CD” Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and PPA activist Sharon Black.Sharon Black, J. Wyndal Gordon and Rev. Cortly “CD” Witherspoon.Charges of criminal trespass were dismissed today on Rev. CD Witherspoon and Sharon Black, who were arrested [while] delivering a letter from the Baltimore Peoples Power Assembly to the Mayor’s office on Aug. 6. [The letter stated] demands and issues voted on at the June 30 Peoples Assembly [regarding] recreation center closings, police killings, and jobs.At that Peoples Assembly, over 142 people voted to hold a “Unity March” to press forward on these critical issues. As part of that effort, the organization drafted a letter expressing their demands and a request for an emergency meeting. Just four days later recreation centers in the city were slated to be closed.Attorney J. Wyndal Gordon stated, “Congratulations to civil rights activists Cortly CD Witherspoon and Sharon Black on their acquittal of charges arising out of their right to protest government. These activists marched on City Hall on August 6, 2012, and risked their liberty to demand that fire stations and recreation centers stay open, plans for youth jails shut down, funding for educational programs, jobs for the unemployed, and justice for victims of ‘Blue Crime’ (i.e., police brutality).”[Gordon] continued: “In August 2012, [the Baltimore Police Department] shot 10 people and killed eight. BPD was averaging at least one killing per month. [But] Gregg Bernstein’s State’s Attorney’s Office was relentless in the prosecution of this case, which many felt was politically motivated to silence and make examples of Black and Witherspoon. However, we were even more relentless in our defense. At the close of the State’s presentation of evidence, we moved for judgment of acquittal, and it was granted. The State brought in some of their top brass and SWAT members to testify and still failed to even prove ‘probable cause.’ Not Guilty! Another victory for the struggle!”Witherspoon and Black [said]: “We owe this victory to the power of the people; to the continuing support of countless people who have picketed and protested around these issues. We are equally grateful for the work of attorney J. Wyndal, who proved in action why he is the ‘Warrior Lawyer.’ Together the people will prevail.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Collin Peterson Honored for Ethanol Support

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleIt’s Back Home for State Fair Cattle JudgeNext articleEnlist, One Step Closer to Registration Andy Eubank The American Coalition for Ethanol meeting in Minneapolis this week honored Congressman Collin Peterson of Minnesota with its highest award for supporters of ethanol, the Merle Anderson award. Anderson himself presented Peterson with the award, as well as an ethanol lapel pin and five dollars for his campaign.Peterson says ethanol has been great for agriculture and he continues to fight for it in Congress. “It’s just been a tremendous success story in agriculture because it’s changed the marketplace so farmers can get a decent price for their corn,” he said. “We do have our opponents and they are still working to undermine things,” he continued, noting that just last week Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) attempted to bring up a bill to get rid of the RFS. “They want to go back to $1.85 corn and I tell them if they are successful they will rue the day because nobody can grow corn for $1.85.” Peterson says the only way farmers survived when prices were $1.85 a bushel was because of the government subsidy “and that’s gone.”Peterson remains hopeful that the EPA will eventually come out with a better final rule on the 2014 volume obligations for the RFS. “I think the fact that they delayed this for now a third time shows they are listening,” he said. “It appears to me that they realize they made a mistake here and they’re trying to figure out how to undo it.” He thinks it could be next year before the rule is final, but “a delayed decision is better than a bad decision.” Source: www.domesticfuel.com Home Energy Collin Peterson Honored for Ethanol Support Collin Peterson Honored for Ethanol Support Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 5, 2014 SHARElast_img read more

The hearing was centered on H.R. 2975, the Women’s Health Protection Act, legislation introduced by U.S. Representative Judy Chu (CA-27) and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), along with Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Representatives Marcia Fudge (OH-11), Lois Frankel (FL-21), to guarantee equal access to abortion, everywhere. WHPA guarantees a pregnant person’s right to access an abortion—and the right of an abortion provider to deliver these abortion services—free from medically unnecessary restrictions that interfere with a patient’s individual choice or the provider-patient relationship. The WHPA sponsors and co-leads, and leaders from the Pro-Choice Caucus issued the following statements:The Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized abortion as a constitutional right, but for years, states like Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, and Ohio have been chipping away at that right by passing more and restrictive laws that directly undermine access to abortion services. These laws are medically unnecessary and serve to block, dissuade, or deter women from seeking abortions, putting women’s health at risk. This impact is particularly felt by the most vulnerable among us, those who will have the hardest time taking off work and driving long distances to access abortion care. That is why we are fighting back with the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA),” said Rep. Chu. “This bill will finally end these state-based attacks by codifying the protections of Roe v. Wade into law and ensuring our rights do not depend on our zipcode. I am so thrilled that the Energy and Commerce Committee held this hearing today. It was an incredible opportunity for the American people to understand the war on women’s rights and the tools available to fight back.”“Today’s hearing in the House of Representatives marks a significant step forward for the Women’s Health Protection Act and efforts to safeguard reproductive rights,” said Sen. Blumenthal. “State legislatures are pursuing and passing politically-overreaching anti-choice laws that directly hurt women and their families as they make deeply private and often difficult medical decisions. A woman’s right to choose is constitutionally-protected and overwhelmingly supported by the majority of Americans. The Women’s Health Protection Act will defend this essential human right for all women and ensure they have access to a safe and legal abortion, no matter their ZIP code.”“Today the House is showing leadership on the need to protect women’s access to reproductive health care. When Roe v. Wade is under attack, women’s health is under attack and we will not stand for it,” said Sen. Baldwin. “I introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act with Senator Blumenthal because we must protect every woman’s constitutionally-protected reproductive rights. Every woman should have the freedom to make her own, personal health care decisions about her body and her family, without interference from politicians.”“This bill will guarantee that all women, not their governor or state legislators, will be fully in charge of their own bodies,” said Rep. Frankel.“As states across the country continue their attacks on reproductive rights, now is a critical time to ensure every woman can make her own health care decisions.” said Rep. Fudge. “Access to comprehensive reproductive health care is a constitutional right that has been repeatedly upheld by the Supreme Court. Today’s hearing is an important next step towards protecting a woman’s right to choose.”“There’s an ongoing, concerted effort to overturn Roe v. Wade and we’re not going to sit back and wait for it to play out,” said Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chair Diana DeGette (CO-01) That’s why we’re taking action now to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and put the protections guaranteed by Roe v. Wade into law.”“Today’s historic hearing is an important step forward to enshrine Roe v. Wade into law through the Women’s Health Protection Act.,” said Pro-Choice Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13) This bill would protect health care providers’ ability to deliver abortion services free from medically unnecessary and onerous restrictions that are designed to push abortion care out of reach for so many people – especially patients of color. We know that people of color and low-income people are disproportionately affected by restrictions on abortion coverage, and that those who have been denied abortion access are more likely to live in poverty. As the co-chair of the Pro-Choice Caucus, I will continue to fight against ANY effort to undermine and chip away at our constitutionally protected right to comprehensive, reproductive health care.”“Decisions regarding our individual health are deeply personal and must never be used as bait for partisanship or to advance a political agenda,” said Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), Pro-Choice Caucus Abortion Task Force Chair. “As Chair of the Abortion Rights and Access Task Force, I cannot and will not idly sit by as the health and wellbeing of people of color, young people, trans people, immigrant people, native people, and low-income people are marginalized and weaponized. I am proud to support the Women’s Health Protection Act which will both affirm the full promise of Roe v. Wade and reproductive justice for all.” Business News Subscribe EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Yet, many businesses across the nation stepped up and continued to prioritize and champion LGBTQ equality,” said Alphonso David, Human Rights Campaign President. “This year has shown us that tools like the CEI are crucial in the work to increase equity and inclusion in the workplace, but also that companies must breathe life into these policies and practices in real and tangible ways. Thank you to the companies that understand protecting their LGBTQ employees and consumers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do—but the best business decision.” The CEI rates employers providing these crucial protections to over 18 million U.S. workers and an additional 17 million abroad. Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses, American Lawyer magazine’s top 200 revenue-grossing law firms (AmLaw 200), and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses. The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:Non-discrimination policies across business entities;Equitable benefits for LGBTQ workers and their families;Supporting an inclusive culture; and,Corporate social responsibility.
