Evolution looking into Malta expansion

Total revenues for the nine months to the end of September was up almost 40% at €127m, with operating profit up more than 30% at just over €48m.Evolution said margin was impacted by a faster than-expected growth in the number of tables, with the company – which provides its live casino products to many of the world’s top operators such as William Hill and Unibet – having approximately 500 tables live at the end of the quarter.Evolution has seen significant growth around the world over the course of the last 12 months with its Rest of Europe (not including UK and Nordics) and Rest of World segments increasing by around 50% and between 20-25% in terms of GGR each quarter respectively. It is licensed in a number of European markets, including the UK, Denmark, Italy and Spain, as well as Canada and New Jersey.CEO Martin Carlesund said the company expects “continued high expansion going forward”, with further growth at its Malta base likely next year.“When we look upon 2019, we turn our focus to Malta where we evaluate the possibilities for further expansion, potentially via a new studio,” Carlesund said.“All our international teams are located in Malta, and we see that demand for native-language services is increasing as more markets become regulated.”Carlesund described the opening of Evolution’s New Jersey studio as the operational highlight of the quarter but warned that big returns are not expected immediately.“The US market remains a long-term project, where New Jersey marks the start of a longer journey,” he said. “The timetable for regulation in additional states is hard to predict; according to reports, Pennsylvania is next during 2019.“Regardless of the timing, Evolution is now very well positioned to grasp the opportunities that will open up.”While growth was largely positive, Carlesund warned that profit margin for the full year will be at the lower end of forecasts. The company’s share price was down almost 2% at the end of Wednesday.

Authorities urged to lose no time in establishing who killed German journalists

first_img to go further RSF_en News June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Afghanistan Organisation Reporters Without Borders today called on the Afghan authorities to quickly identify those responsible for the murders of German freelance journalists Karen Fischer and Christian Struwe and to establish their motives. The Afghan authorities said they had identified six people they want to question.Fischer, 30, and Struwe, 38, were shot dead in the tent in which they were sleeping at a roadside in Baghlan province, north of Kabul, in the early hours of 7 October. They had often worked for the German public broadcasting company Deutsche Welle. They had also worked for UNICEF.“We are deeply saddened by this tragedy, which took place on the day that a Journalists Memorial was inaugurated in Bayeux, in northern France, to pay homage to the dozens of journalists who are killed each year in the course of their work,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The deaths of Fischer and Struwe should serve as a reminder to foreign journalists to take great care when travelling around Afghanistan,” the organisation added.Fischer and Struwe had been on their way to Bamiyan to do a report on its historic sites, including the remains of the large Buddha statues that were demolished by the Taliban in 2001. The gunmen armed with AK-47s who shot them in their tent also riddled their car with bullets. This, and the fact their assailants did take their equipment or passports suggests the motive was not robbery. The Afghan interior ministry expressed regret that Fischer and Struwe were travelling without a guide.Baghlan is a province that has so far seen few attacks by Taliban insurgents. Mullah Dadullah, one of the Taliban military chiefs, announced on 4 September that the movement led by Mullah Omar would kill any journalists who used information provided by the NATO forces operating in Afghanistan. “We have the Islamic right to kill these journalists,” he told the Associated Press.The German government said it condemned the double murder with the “utmost firmness” and called for those responsible to be brought to justice. Last July, an Afghan employee of the privately-owned TV station Aryana was killed when a suicide bomb was quickly followed up by second one in the same place near the southern city of Kandahar.

He was initially sentenced to death in November 2003 but his sentence was reduced to three years imprisonment on 12 May 2004. International pressure helped to contribute to the commutation of his sentence. With your help we could secure his full release.The military junta accused Zaw Thet Htwe of involvement in a “conspiracy” against the government and charged him with “high treason”. However Amnesty International and Reporters without Borders believe that he is a prisoner of conscience, arrested for exercising his right to freedom of expression. He had reportedly taken the risk of exposing irregularities on the part of Burmese sports officials.The seven law students, who have been in detention since June 2003, are believed to have been arrested because they set up a student sports union in their university without official permission. Aung Gyi, Aung Ko Lwin, Kyaw Maung, Myo Myint Tun, Myo Than Htut, Nang Siang None and Win Htut Lwin were sentenced to terms of between seven and fifteen years’ imprisonment and were reportedly ill-treated after their arrest.They are among more than 1,350 political prisoners detained in Myanmar, many of whom have been arrested for their peaceful political activities.Sign the petition online MyanmarAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Mar Vista features 10 one-bedroom and 10 two bed-room units, with four units equipped for the mobility impaired and audio or visually impaired, and one unit reserved for an onsite coordinator. Other amenities include a community garden, tot lot, community room, onsite computer lab, and laundry rooms.The project, scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2016, is a collaborative effort between Union Station Homeless Services and National CORE, one of the nation’s largest nonprofit developers of affordable housing. Funding for Mar Vista Apartments will be provided by Los Angeles Community Development Commission (LA CDC), First 5 LA, Low-Income Housing Tax Credits through the State of California, and the City of Pasadena. Union Station will provide the onsite wrap-around services to residents, such as health care, substance abuse counseling, mental health counseling, and employment assistance.“It all started with a vision from Marv Gross to provide the homeless clients they serve at Union Station with permanent housing,” says Julie Mungai, VP of Acquisitions with National CORE. The vision became a reality when William Huang, Director of Housing for the City of Pasadena, approached Union Station and National CORE about the reuse or demolition of the former Broadway Apartments, located on North Mar Vista Avenue.The previous owner of the apartments had relocated it there from its original site near Fuller Seminary. The abandoned apartment complex fell into disrepair as efforts to preserve the building as a historic structure were constantly delayed. The construction of the Mar Vista Apartments will be a positive change for the once dilapidated lot, and will bring change for the lives of its future residents.“This is an important neighborhood improvement project,” Victor Gordo, council member of the City of Pasadena states. “Families will soon come here and we’ll be proud when they leave here as successful members of the community.”For over 40 years, Union Station has worked with the City of Pasadena to help individuals and families transition from homelessness. The results from Pasadena’s 2015 Homeless Count show a 5% decrease in the overall homeless population from last year, with a reduction of 48% within the past 4 years. However, while the number of people experiencing homelessness has decreased, the remaining population has greater and more extensive needs, making them more visible to the public.“This is a critically important project,” says William Huang, the City of Pasadena’s Director of Housing and Career Services. “It will end homelessness for 19 families. If you think of 632 homeless people in a city that’s only 23 square miles, it’s still way too many people.”“This effort has required many hands and many hearts. Mar Vista has been a labor of love,” Marv Gross, CEO of Union Station Homeless Services addressed the crowd. “We’re groundbreaking today, but this event is ground breaking because this is the first purpose built permanent housing for families in Pasadena. Families will have the opportunity to rebuild their lives. This is something we can all be proud of.”Union Station Homeless Services, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is committed to helping homeless men, women and children rebuild their lives. Union Station Homeless Services is part of a premier group of human services agencies in Los Angeles County that are leading the way to ending homelessness in our community. We are the San Gabriel Valley’s largest social service agency assisting homeless and very low-income adults and families. We believe every person deserves a life of dignity and a safe place to call home. With 41 years of experience, we proudly offer a full continuum of eight programs in seven locations; services include street outreach, intake/assessment, care coordination and navigation, meals, shelter, housing, employment development, benefits enrollment, and referrals to medical and mental health services. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Pinterest ISPCA Centre Manager, Denise McCausland, said:  “We are appealing for information to help trace an owner for these little guys who may have escaped. One of the male rabbits has a deformity in his right eye and it is unclear if he has any vision and whether it is a result of a previous or recent injury. Both rabbits appear to be in reasonably good health, just a little tired and hungry. The male rabbit appears to be neutered and they are both currently being veterinary assessed.”Denise added:  “Huge thanks to the animal loving public for reporting the sightings and for the numerous efforts to capture them.  Domestic rabbits would struggle to fend for themselves in the wild and were in serious danger from predators, placing them in a very vulnerable position. We currently have no rabbit hutch or enclosure at the Centre and we hope someone might like to donate one, used or new, so we have a dedicated space to help more rescued rabbits”.
