Rose brushed off recent data showing a drop in retail sales and consumer confidence, saying this was partly due to uncertainty over the government spending review and to less favourable weather for retailers than last year.He said the key Christmas trading period would be “hard fought, but… OK” and retail sales would grow next year, although trading conditions would not be easy.“I think it will be exactly what we have seen – the weak will get weaker and the strong will get stronger.” KCS-content last_img read more

Lotto NZ to reopen more locations as Covid-19 measures eased

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Lotto New Zealand has announced it is to reopen more of its sales outlets across the country after the government further eased social distancing measures related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 14th May 2020 | By contenteditor Lotto New Zealand has announced it is to reopen more of its sales outlets across the country after the government further eased social distancing measures related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.New Zealand yesterday (13 May) moved to Alert Level 2 of the coronavirus alert system, enabling more businesses to reopen to the public, provided they follow the relevant public health guidance.As such, Lotto NZ said it would implement increased hygiene practices across all of its counters, as well as ensure staff and customers adhere to social distancing rules.Ticket write-up counters will remain closed, while customers will not be able to scratch Instant Kiwi tickets inside stores. Players will also need to use the ticket checker to see if they have won, with retailers only validating winning tickets.However, Lotto NZ noted that while the majority of its counters would reopen as a result of the move to Alert Level 2, some will remain closed, including those in Relay stores and some independent outlets.“We’re committed to keeping both retailers and customers safe, while still allowing people to purchase their tickets,” Lotto NZ chief executive Chris Lyman said. “We’ve also added in some extra safety precautions for transactions – so these may take a little bit longer. We ask that people be patient, and be kind.“We have seen a big increase in customers purchasing their tickets online during the lockdown, which has been fantastic, but sales over the lockdown have decreased to around 60% of what we would normally see at comparable jackpot levels.“This ultimately means less community funding, so we’re pleased to have the retail part of our business up and running again, giving our customers an option to buy their tickets in open stores if they wish.”Lotto NZ generates funding for New Zealand communities, with 100% of profits going to more than 3,000 good causes around the country each year. Lotto NZ is also a significant funder for Sport New Zealand, New Zealand Film Commission and Creative New Zealand.“With retail stores able to re-open this week we can continue to generate funding for New Zealand communities, many of which will need it now more than ever,” Lyman said.Lyman added that players who do not want to visit stores can still play online, while consumers can also wait to claim any prizes from physical tickets until a later date when the Alert Level is lowered again.“The most important thing is that we keep everyone safe during this time, which means following the government’s advice on Covid-19. Never has there been such an important time for Kiwis to help other Kiwis,” he said.Lotto NZ halted all retail sales when the country entered lockdown at the end of March, temporarily closing its counters in pharmacies, dairies, petrol stations and supermarkets, though customers were still able to purchase tickets online.However, at the end of April, Lotto NZ reopened its counters inside dairies and convenience stores after the government moved to Alert Level 3. At the time, counters at other locations were not allowed to reopen until Alert Level 2 came into effect.The downgrade to Alert Level 2 could also allow other sectors of the gambling market to recommence certain activities. On 1 May, New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) confirmed the transitional calendar for the remainder of the 2019-20 horse racing season.Harness racing in New Zealand is set to resume on 29 May, with thoroughbred racing to follow on 3 July. However, the revised calendar will feature racing at a reduced number of tracks to ensure racing is run in line with government measures designed to stop the spread of coronavirus.This week, RITA welcomed a NZD$72.5m (£35.5m/€40.1m/US$43.2m) support package from the country’s government. The package is made up of a $50m grant plus up to $20m on two new synthetic racetracks, with $2.5m set aside for the Department of Internal Affairs to distribute from community and sports associations who typically receive a portion of gambling revenue.center_img Topics: Legal & compliance Lottery Regions: Oceania New Zealand Lotto NZ to reopen more locations as Covid-19 measures eased Legal & compliancelast_img read more

Episcopalians help Muslims break their daily fast at interfaith iftar…

The church’s 15th annual iftar will be May 31. Photo: St. James, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] The Muslim holy month of Ramadan started this week, and Episcopal congregations across the country have been encouraged to participate in an interfaith outpouring of support, including by hosting or joining the dinners at which Muslims break their daily fast.The meals, called iftars, are served every evening after sundown during Ramadan, which started this year on May 16. Iftars often are festive community gatherings, sometimes held in homes, sometimes in mosques – and sometimes in Christian churches, in an effort to bridge divides across faith traditions.St. James Episcopal Church in Columbus, Ohio, is preparing to host its 15th annual iftar, and the meals have become so popular that the church has to take reservations and cap attendance at 150. Lead organizer Janet Bailey called the meal the church’s gift to its Muslim neighbors, “to let them know that we care and that we’re not afraid and that this is a safe environment for them.”Similar iftars have been hosted in the past at Episcopal churches nationwide, such as in Miami and Houston. This year, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring Harbor, New York, on Long Island is gathering a group of parishioners to attend a community iftar hosted by a local Muslim organization. Teens specifically have been invited, as part of a broader interfaith response to an incident last year involving hate speech at a local high school.“Very few of our parishioners or our teens have ever been to a mosque or an Islamic center,” the Rev. Gideon L.K. Pollach, rector at St. John’s, told Episcopal News Service. “This is part of a larger effort in our region to work together on issues of common cause.”Ramadan is considered the holiest month of the year for Muslims, who abstain from food and drink during daytime hours as they heighten their focus on spiritual rejuvenation. The iftar, which means “breaking the fast,” commences at sunset.“Inviting guests to break the fast or going to someone’s house for iftar is very common in Ramadan,” the Islamic Networks Group, or ING, says on its website. “Many mosques also host open houses for their friends and neighbors of other faiths to join them for their fast-breaking dinner or iftar at the end of the fasting day.”ING, an organization whose mission is to build interfaith alliances and dispel stereotypes about Muslims, is one of the supporting partners, along with the Episcopal Church, behind a campaign during Ramadan to connect people of different faiths around the iftar. The campaign, The United States of Love Over Hate, is led by the ecumenical organization Shoulder to Shoulder, of which the Episcopal Church is a member.“The primary goal of this effort is to identify, support and connect people to iftars open to interfaith guests across the United States, in order to help facilitate local relationship building among Muslim and non-Muslim communities,” Shoulder to Shoulder says on its website. “Additionally, houses of worship are invited to display ‘Love – Your Neighbors’ signs outside their buildings during the month of Ramadan, to show their commitment to standing with and getting to know their neighbors.”That mission has been taken up by the Episcopal Church’s Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations and is being carried out by congregations like St. James in Ohio and St. John’s in New York.The iftar at St. James was started in response to episodes of Islamophobia after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Bailey said. Part of the goal was to educate St. James parishioners about the Muslim faith, though the congregation also wanted to promote a spirit of welcome.“It’s probably more to let them know here are Christians that are welcoming them to basically our church home and to show that we are no different than them, as far as our likes, our goals in life and wanting to live peacefully,” Bailey said.The church’s first iftar drew a few dozen guests, and it has grown steadily each year. Most of those attending are Muslim, though the iftars also draw members of St. James and two other Episcopal churches in the area.On May 31 at sundown, around 9 p.m., guests will gather in the downstairs of the St. James parish hall to break the fast with dates and water. They then will go upstairs, where an imam will lead the group in prayers on rugs laid out for them. After the prayers, all gather again downstairs for a potluck meal that has been prepared following Muslim halal guidelines.Given the popularity of the iftars, St. James has worked with All Saints Episcopal Church in New Albany, Ohio, and St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Westerville to host their own iftars later in Ramadan, Bailey said.Pollach, the St. John’s rector, has never been to an iftar, though he worked as a seminarian in the Office of Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations under Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold.“In general, learning more about people of different faiths and cultures adds context and depth to our understanding of our own culture,” he said.Christians, Muslims and Jews in his community on Long Island have been working together in recent years to tackle shared challenges, most notably the opioid epidemic. Their work gained an added sense of urgency in August when swastikas and hate speech were found spray-painted on walls at Syosset High School. Five students were arrested in connection with the graffiti.Teens and worshipers of all faiths are invited to the iftar on May 22 at the Islamic Center of Long Island in Westbury, and Pollach plans to bring a group of eight to 10 members of his church.“I’m just looking forward to it,” he said. “The ecumenical community has been working really hard to develop a greater depth of understanding across the communities … to try and build relationships, not just around religious things but also around social and cultural issues.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Functional and aesthetic redesign of the interior Built in the small town of Humpolec in the Czech Republic in 2005, the now iconic Rusty House demonstrated the possibilities of working with a relatively small and tight parcel with numerous limitations.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe house was built with exposed materials in their raw state: polished concrete floors, an exposed galvanised steel structure forming the basic axis of the house, corrugated sheet metal covered with concrete for the ceiling and a concrete screed as the final wall finish. The entire exterior of the house is clad with pre-rusted sheet metal (CorTen). The landscaping of the garden forms an integral part of the project, and therefore, after being originally shunned by the public, the house naturally blends into the neighbouring line of homes. Thanks to the mature trees planted around the house, it has become virtually invisible.Save this picture!After living in the house for 12 years, the owner decided to renovate the interior and to ‘soften’ the original ‘rawness’ on the main floor of the living space.  Additional layers were added to the interior for both aesthetic and functional reasons. The basic parameter that had to be improved was the acoustics of the interior. All of the hard and reflective surfaces in the minimalistic interior were modified, and the acoustics of the space were improved considerably by the installation of oak ceiling panels. The wood is scored with perpendicular lines, creating an unusual impression consistent with the certain austerity of the house. New drapes also increased the acoustic comfort and intimacy of the space. Other changes were focused only on the redesign of the interior. The majority of new elements were custom-made based on designs produced by the architecture studio responsible for the original and new concept. The new kitchen cabinets replace older, functionally obsolete types, while the new fireplace insert reflects the latest trends in heating. The entire lighting and control of the house underwent a major change from both an appearance and energetic perspective. The heating system was technically improved as well.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe owners don’t perceive the renovations as a reconstruction but rather as added functional layers applied to the original raw structure; the old and the improved complement one another and form a harmonious, new whole. ‘It’s fantastic that the house is able to naturally respond to new demands and ages or matures with us’, noted the satisfied owners.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessLa Barquiere / PietriArchitectesSelected ProjectsGrow with the Forest Valley Villas / Origin ArchitectSelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” Architects: OK PLAN ARCHITECTS Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img Area:  250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Year:  CopyHouses•Humpolec, Czech Republic ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882640/rusty-house-ok-plan-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/882640/rusty-house-ok-plan-architects Clipboard 2017 Rusty House / OK PLAN ARCHITECTS Save this picture!© BoysPlayNice+ 21 Sharelast_img read more

WWP’s Moorehead/Lilly campaign files for write-in status in Ohio

first_imgThe Workers World Party 2016 team of Monica Moorehead and Lamont Lilly are now official presidential and vice presidential write-in candidates in Ohio. While not on the ballot, the state must now count and report the number of voters who write in the WWP candidates’ names on their ballots.Many of the electors required to file with the state came from a meeting held during the week Cleveland was invaded by the Republican National Convention. Moorehead and Lilly spoke to an overflow crowd at the Black on Black Center. The candidates stressed that racism cannot be eliminated at the ballot box but rather in the streets. WWP uses the elections as a vehicle to reach as many people as possible in order to build a militant, mass movement to fight for a better world.Barbara Louise, a longtime Cleveland feminist and LGBTQ activist, made clear why she wanted to be an elector for the WWP ticket: “We need a choice that’s not the lesser of two evils. We need candidates that do not support capitalism, as do the Democrats and Republicans.”Getting on the ballot is a herculean task in the majority of states. By conducting a write-in campaign, WWP hopes to raise working-class consciousness while giving total support to the Black Lives Matter movement. As stated by Karl Marx in 1848 and updated by V.I. Lenin after the Russian Revolution in 1917: “Workers and oppressed peoples of the world unite. We have nothing to lose but our chains!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

End the U.S. blockade of Cuba!

first_imgOpinion polls said it. Now the Florida midterm elections show it.Two of three South Florida representatives to the U.S. House who had prioritized hostility to socialist Cuba lost their seats. Ileana Roz-Lehtinen’s hand-picked replacement couldn’t win her former congressional seat; Carlos Curbelo lost, too.Although this change was not reflected in the Senate race in Florida, even the Miami Herald speculated on Nov. 8: “Makeup of new Congress could create a different dynamic on Cuba policy.”Let’s call “Cuba policy” by its right name — BLOCKADE. Travelers may be able to book direct flights on most airlines from many U.S. airports to destinations in Cuba, but four Indian banks have refused to complete financial transactions to sell antibiotics to Cuba. And that’s just one example of the U.S. blockade in action.But don’t depend on the new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives to change anything. So far it is agricultural states in the U.S., which are drowning in unsold soybeans, milk and other produce, that strongly want restrictions lifted. Many of these states lean Republican.Democratic President Bill Clinton formalized the blockade into law by signing the Helms-Burton Act in 1996. Even the actions by former Democratic President Barack Obama to re-establish diplomatic relations, direct flights and mutually respectful discussions with Cuba on many issues, were aimed at a broader, unspoken “regime-change” agenda. The plan was — and still is — to find a way to reassert U.S. domination in Latin America and the Caribbean. U.S. targets include not only Cuba, but Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, as well as Latin America’s largest economy, Brazil.It is up to revolutionaries, progressives, Cuban-Americans and the million or more U.S. residents who have traveled to Cuba and seen it for themselves to make and enforce this demand on the U.S. Congress:End the U.S. economic, financial and commercial blockade of Cuba!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Don’t Fear the Data

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The big topic at most of the state and national farm meetings this winter has been “big data”.  Like sustainability, organic, and food security, the term “big data” gets used by lots of people without a clear understanding what it means. This does not stop people from using it, nor does it stop people from being afraid of it.  Big data was a major issue at the American Farm Bureau Federation policy resolution session back in January. But is big data something to be afraid of?Generally speaking, the term “big data” refers to the information that is collected by farmers’ GPS systems. This can mean anything from yield, to soil fertility, weather conditions and much more. Today farmers can collect data about their fields down to the square inch.  In recent years, the equipment growers use has become more sophisticated and can not only collect lots of data but can move that data from the machine to another machine, a computer, a wireless device, and a databank at the equipment  or seed company headquarters.  More and more companies have set up programs that collect and aggregate this data, and that has raised concerns by farmers as to who owns the data and what is being done with it.As I have watched this debate unfold, it seems that farmers fall into two groups: those who do not feel comfortable sharing their data, and those who are willing to share their data but want something back in return.  Those off the farm fall into similar groups: those who advocate for the benefits that big data can provide, and those who raise red flags about the unintended consequences it may bring. Dr. Lowell Catlett, economist and futurist at the University of New Mexico, is one who feels the benefits of big data are worth the risks.  He believes that the next big breakthrough in production agriculture will come as a result of big data.   Catlett makes the case that by collecting billions of bit of data we can see patterns that would otherwise not be evident.  He postulates that insect control, weed control, soil fertility, and yield could all be improved by aggregating data from farm fields.  Catlett believes that the reluctance by some to share their data is due to a generational shift. He told me baby boomers are reluctant to share their data, but younger generations have no problem sharing data, “Just look at what they are putting up on social media; they will share all kinds of personal data.” Taking a more cautious approach to big data are producer and commodity groups. AFBF is very concerned that farmers maintain control of their data and receive benefits for any data they share.  They are looking to industry to set some standards and guidelines for how farmer data is shared and used. Matt Erickson, a White County, Indiana native now serving as an economist for American Farm Bureau, said AFBF is approaching data from the policy perspective and facilitating data conversations among like-minded ag organizations. He stated, “It’s important that farm organizations have that conversation with the industry to make sure that like-minded terms and conditions, data privacy statements are consistent with one another and transparent within what you’re signing up for. We’ve got policy based on ownership. Farmers own the data. It’s your data. You should have the choice of where your data goes. With security and privacy issues, privacy is probably the biggest heartburn that gives our folks sleepless nights, because you can implement the best management practices on your farm, but once that data goes to the company, it’s with the company.” Previous articleTwo Weeks Left for Farm Mom NominationsNext articleCurrent Profitability of Ethanol Production Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Kenneth Cukier, in his book Big Data, describes how big data can turn on those who provide the data. A small company called Farecast developed a program that predicted when airline ticket prices would be going up or down.  Based on millions of bits of ticket data provided by the airlines, Farecast was able to produce a service that told consumers when to buy to get the lowest price. As Cukier told the Forum, the airlines’ own data was used against them.  This is the very thing that some in agriculture fear. Big data is here to stay and will play a significant role in the future of farming. So while you should not fear big data, you should be cautious.  Producers have to strike a balance between trust and benefit. The industry must provide some standards and guidelines to protect those who provide the information and to win their trust. center_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Mar 16, 2014 Home Commentary Don’t Fear the Data Don’t Fear the Data By Gary Truitt Kip Tom, a farmer from Warsaw, Indiana, is already sharing his data and happy to do so. Tom told a panel discussion on big data at the Indiana Livestock, Forage, and Grain forum that he shares his data in exchange for useful information and analysis in return. He said he trusts the people he is working with and has put restrictions on what data they can have and how they can use it. He envisions groups of farmers in key geographies getting together and pooling their data. They could then negotiate with companies to share the large set of data for a specific price.  Catlett says the data has value and, in some cases, as much value as the crop.  Tom suggests that it is not just farm companies who may become interested in the data, but software firms may soon begin to take an interest in agriculture’s big data.last_img read more
