Singapore Pools to resume online betting

first_img Singapore Pools to resume online betting Email Address Lottery 15th June 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Topics: Lottery Sports betting Singapore’s state-owned lottery operator Singapore Pools resumes online and telephone betting services following the closure of its operations in April due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Singapore’s state-owned lottery operator Singapore Pools resumes online and telephone betting services following the closure of its operations in April due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The operator suspended all of its sales, both online and retail, on 7 April when the Singapore government announced that all non-essential workplaces and schools were to be shut. Local racing remains suspended, with the Singapore Turf Club saying in May that it is unlikely to return until July at the earliest.While online and telephone lottery sales will remain unavailable, customers may place bets on sports and racing from 16 and 17 June respectively.Among the sports events available for betting are the Bundesliga and La Liga in football, which returned in May and June respectively. Meanwhile, horse racing from Australia and South Africa will be available.While lotteries remain suspended, draws have been postponed rather than cancelled. This means that tickets purchased before the suspension will remain valid. A return date for lotteries has still not been set.The suspension came soon after the country’s Ministry of Home Affairs announced plans to review its gambling regulations and create a new single regulatory authority for the gambling industry.Currently, regulation of gambling is divided between a number of different government departments, including the Casino Regulatory Authority regulating casino gambling, the Gambling Regulatory Unit of the MHA regulating remote gambling and fruit machines and the Singapore Totalisator Board governing retail pools betting.These will be consolidated under the Gambling Regulatory Authority from 2021. In addition, plans were announced to update gambling regulations to reflect changes in technology and consumer habits.Casinos in Singapore had originally been planned to open on 9 June, but this had been pushed back indefinitely, which contributed to H2 Gambling Capital downgrading its 2020 global gaming revenue forecast again by $5bn in the biggest absolute fall in FY expectations for five weeks.

The BT share price looks like a dirt-cheap bargain at today’s price! Here’s what I’d do now

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The BT share price looks like a dirt-cheap bargain at today’s price! Here’s what I’d do now Enter Your Email Address The BT Group (LSE: BT.A) share price goes from bad to worse. It’s down another 3% today, after the group posted a drop in first-quarter profit in the three months to June. Pre-tax profits fell 13% to £561m, with revenue down 7% to £5.2bn.This was down to Covid-19, mostly, which cut BT Sports revenue as the Premier League and other major sporting events were suspended. The lockdown hit business activity in its retail outlets and mobile phone roaming revenues.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…The damage was partly offset by mitigating actions and savings from the group’s transformation programmes. Almost every FTSE 100 company has taken a coronavirus hit, but BT was vulnerable to start off with. Its shares have been in precipitous decline since early 2015, losing 80% of their value since then.Investors who have repeatedly tried to catch this falling knife will have been frustrated. BT’s share price has kept plunging. Grabbing it today also looks risky, especially with the wider economy suffering its fastest contraction in history.BT share price falls againChief executive Philip Jansen talked up a “relatively resilient” set of results, hailing the group’s “strong operating performance.” Unlike many companies, BT was able to provide an outlook for this year, predicting a 5-6% drop in adjusted revenues and, beyond that, “sustainable adjusted EBITDA growth, driven in part by the recovery from Covid-19.”As with so many companies, much now rests on where the pandemic takes us from here. The BT share price looks a bargain, trading at just 5.6 times forecast earnings. Fears of a second wave will make investors wary, but I don’t see the government locking down the economy again. Football will continue. We’ll get used to face masks, won’t we? A FTSE 100 bargain for the long termWith the Premier League returning, football subscribers have been paying their usual monthly bills from 19 June. BT Sports also holds Champions League rights, and that’ll be back on our screens shortly too. The new Premier League season kicks off on 12 September.However, another source of revenue could take a serious knock. If companies go bust, they won’t pay their broadband bills. Today, BT warned of “slower decision-making by our larger customers, and lower usage across our SME and wholesale businesses.” The BT share price is vulnerable to a severe recession.BT has to invest around £12bn on its fibre roll-out. It also has to remove all of its Huawei kit by 2027, which will cost a few more billions. Net debt now stands at a hefty £18.2bn, up £200m from 31 March. It won’t pay dividends until at least the 2022 fiscal year.The BT share price is trading at rock bottom levels right now, but the company also faces some mountainous challenges. Recent troubles have served to focus management minds though. It could emerge from the pandemic stronger. There’s a long way to go though. It has too many problems for me to recommend it.As I said about Lloyds yesterday, investors who buy today must be patient. The recovery will take time.

The University of Oxford is developing the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter on the site of the old Radcliffe Infirmary. The new development will contain faculty buildings for Humanities and Social Sciences. Somerville College occupies the whole southern boundary of the site. When the old hospital buildings were knocked down they exposed the north-facing flank wall to Somerville College. The proximity of older hospital buildings meant that the College had turned their buildings away from the Infirmary. An almost blank façade was exposed for the first time along the boundary of the site. The University exchanged land with the College to allow a long, narrow development along this edge. This allowed the College to build new student rooms and to re-orientate their grounds towards a major new centre for the University. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThe parcel of land ceded by the University was just wide enough to allow one student room and a connecting passageway. The plot was 6m wide by 175m long. It was not possible to make individual entrances into the new building from the north. The student rooms will, over time, connect back into the existing buildings in Somerville College as the phased development of the project progresses. They will overlook a new laneway to the north, which connects Woodstock Road to Walton Street. One remarkable opportunity of this project was to make one whole side of a new street. We were also able to make a new northern entrance into Somerville College, linking their garden quadrangle to a long framed view of the Radcliffe Observatory. Save this picture!© Níall McLaughlin ArchitectsThe design of the street was conceived in the terms of Pevsner’s analysis of the picturesque, episodic setting of Queen’s Lane in Oxford. Building elements are used to frame and terminate short vistas. As you move along the street you reach small public squares at the end of each vista, from each square new vistas open up. This allowed us to interweave new and old buildings in a way that creates lots of small dramas as you move through the city. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThe student rooms are articulated using projecting oak windows as a contemporary restatement of the themes of Sir Phillip Dowson’s Wolfson Building in Somerville College. The projecting bay was conceived as a response to a 1960’s Government Report on Student Loneliness. Each student has their own projection and way of identifying their place in the whole. The bay windows will also bring a liveliness to the extreme oblique views of the building, which you will get when you pass along the narrow laneway once it is complete. The stair towers close vistas and mark entrances. The deep oak fenestration is intended to create variety as you pass along the new laneway. From one view it is all glass, from another it is all timber reveals. Save this picture!© Níall McLaughlin ArchitectsConstruction: A quick construction programme and the need to be sensitive to the quiet environment appropriate for study, indicated that prefabrication was the preferred construction methodology. Working closely with the contractor we devised a way of prefabricating the main structure, timber study windows, stair towers and used pods for the en-suite bathrooms. This ensured that the new accommodation blocks were delivered on time, to the highest quality and with minimal disruption to the college. Save this picture!DiagramSustainability: The Somerville project was designed with sustainability and energy conservation as a key design driver. The approach adopted by the design team was one where the building demand was, in the first instance minimised, prior to the consideration of integrating additional LZC energy source, thus providing the most cost effective way in which carbon dioxide emission could be reduced. Save this picture!PlanThe building envelope was of prime concern, the use of low-U values with high standards of air tightness were paramount to the success of the energy strategy. The envelope was largely pre-fabricated to ensure very high standards. This resulted in a very good building air tightness.  Save this picture!SectionUnder floor heating was selected to operate at lower flow temperatures to take maximum advantage of bore holes sunk under the footprint of the building, connected to a 90kWt Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) installation. This provided of circa 35% of the peak heating load, reducing the building energy demand by almost 15%. Save this picture!SectionsThe hot water load utilises a significant, roof mounted solar thermal installation. This installation provided for 24m2 of evacuated tube.  Calculations indicate that this will generate 10% of the buildings hot water demand and reduce the buildings annual energy demand by 2-3%.  Additionally a significant Photovoltaic installation was installed, 39 monoocrystaline panels, totalling 65m2 .

The House NO: 2 is located in city of Isfahan and is built on 300 sqm plot of land with 4 residential units And 5 Levels as client general demands :Ground floor for parking area , entrance and lobby , yard and mechanical room.Basement as a saloon for ceremonies and some storage rooms .First floor should divided into 2 small unit for client’s guests settlement.Second and third floor for client own use.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiBecause of client’s past bad experiences of living in dark and damp house , we understood quickly that the most crucial issue is providing the maximum possible light and fresh air inside the house especially in living and sitting rooms of two upper floor.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSo we tried to locate all living rooms along south side of units with maximum size of openings . even in 3rd floor we decided to break the roof and push the living roof upper, therefore we could have more openings and better ventilation by the side windows in the east and west .Save this picture!Section ABut the solution in north were the family rooms were located was not as easy as in the south. Because according to municipality limits in Isfahan ,all the buildings must block the view in the north façade up to 175cm height in every stage. And surely masonry materials should be used to fulfill this rule in lower 110 height and between 110-175 frosted glass is allowed .Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiWith focusing on this rule we understood easily that every stage in our north façade is divided into 3 part :1-     Solid part (lowest level)2-     Semi transparent part (middle level)3-     Transparent part (upper level)In first step, this separation gave us the basic lines for façade designing, and after that we tried to make more details and to develop the solid part by transforming it into double skin layer. So we could have indirect light and ventilation even in lowest part.Save this picture!South Facade DiagramIn next step we located a plant case between the layers in solid part with some kind of running plants that it caused more freshness in inner spaces and made our façade alive by connecting outside and inside to each other.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiAs we believe that the façade in residential buildings should never impose any inconveniency for the people who live inside, so in both south and north we tried to adopt the facade to internal spaces and do not add anything useless on the face of the building.According to the usage of basement as a saloon for ceremonies and a public space it seemed necessary to have natural light and fresh ventilation in there (as we had it always in our historical architecture), so we created a courtyard in down level of basement with plants and flowed water to make better and more enjoyable atmosphere .Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse in S.

The two departments will continue to work side by side, just with two budgets rather than sharing one.”Students who are in that college do not have to change their class catalog, Slattery said. All of the changes are being done on the administrative level.“It’s been a pretty clean split,” Slattery said.

Help by sharing this information News News Receive email alerts RSF_en News RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists “The authorities say the new law is to deal with the excesses of some media, but the measure threatens the entire press,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to the head of the Transitional National Government, Abdiqasim Salad Hassan.”In a country in the process of wholesale reconstruction such as Somalia, the authorities must emphatically encourage the growth of a free, diverse and independent media instead of trying to clamp down on it,” he said.All of Somalia’s privately-owned media (about 20 newspapers, a dozen radio and TV stations and several Internet websites) began a strike on 2 October to protest against the new law, which was passed on 28 September. They said they would no longer report official press releases if the government did not give way.The new law bans publication or broadcast of anything that goes against the “common interests” of the country, without defining what that is. Media who contravene the measure risk withdrawal of their operating licences. Information minister Abdulrahman Ibi said the new law aims to “reorganise and regulate” the media.Press freedom is very limited in two of the country’s autonomous regions – Somaliland and Puntland – where local authorities control the broadcast media and the written press is obliged to censor itself for fear of reprisals.last_img read more

Sure, they’re all my neighbours and I wanted to do something,” was his modest response to the media scrum that followed his heroics.
