An increase in betting fees and gaming levies to €5.3m was offset by a significant reduction in Value Added Tax on electronic services – down 55.6% to €850,000 – left net revenue of €31.1m.Over the quarter the operator reported a rise in expenses, with personnel costs up 5.6% to €4.6m, and marketing costs rising 6.9% to €8.2m. The bulk of marketing spend went on bonuses and player vouchers, which accounted for €3.2m (38.5%) of the total, followed by advertising costs of €2.1m. The marketing investment helped grow customer numbers 4.1% to 5.1m as of March 31, 2019.This increased investment in marketing was to continue throughout 2019, bet-at-home said, with TV advertising, print and online media, bonus promotions and sponsorship agreements to be used to raise brand awareness.Coupled with other operating expenses growing 21.2% to €6.0m, this left earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation of €12.7m, a 35.6% year-on-year rise.Once amortisation and depreciation-related expenses of €460,000, plus €24,000 in finance costs were stripped out, bet-at-home posted a pre-tax profit of €12.2m. After income taxes of €4.4m (up 33.8%), the operator’s net profit for the quarter was up 35.4% at €7.8m.“The results for the first quarter of 2019 reflect the success of the targeted marketing investments in the financial year 2018, as gross betting and gaming revenues as well as all key earnings figures increased significantly year-on-year,” the operator’s chief executives Franz Ömer and Michael Quatember said.Despite the first quarter growth, the operator anticipates a fall in gross betting and gaming revenue in 2019. This, it said, was largely due to legal uncertainty in the Swiss market, where the igaming market is to be restricted to offerings launched by the country’s land-based casinos.As a result gross revenue for the year is projected to fall between €130m and €143m, with EBITDA expected to come in between €29m and €33m.

In the garden of the original Villa Steile (from 1920), lies architect Kim Skaaras` new house, enshrined in the hill in between two large neighboring properties. Low-key and subtle in a residential area outside Oslo, -with views, lights, and outlook. The elongated narrow building is divided into two volumes staggered in the horizontal plane to provide outlook and daylight from the east as well as from the west. The volumes also shift vertically for optimal terrain adaptation.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeyThe original neighboring properties are relatively large and can withstand some degree of densification, and this new footprint shows opportunities for establishing a new building pattern where low transverse housing can be placed between the large dwellings further up the house row. As a bonus- and thanks to the hill- like the geography of the area- Kim and his wife were able to keep their view of the fjord.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeySave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ivan BrodeyLarge sliding doors and top lights on the 2nd floor provide overall good lighting conditions despite the fact that most of the house is located below the ground. A large corner window ensures views of the Oslo fjord even from the kitchen work-space. The house is provided with good outdoor areas to the east and west, in the form of terraces on the ground floor and balconies on the upper level. Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeySave this picture!© Ivan BrodeyMaterialsThe construction consists of insulated concrete thermowell underground, and the house is extra well insulated over terrain with a total of 40cm insulation, to secure comfortable temperatures during Norway cold winters. This gives high energy efficiency, close to passive house standards. The well-visible roof surface is covered with sedum moss. The outdoor areas are constructed with consistently high-quality woods, and support walls in plaster cast concrete and natural stone, stairs in-ground concrete, and fences in oiled crude steel with oak tiles.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeyProject gallerySee allShow lessAdd Delight to Your Drawings with The LightbookArticles120 Ancient Maps Overlapped on Google Earth Reveal the Growth of Cities Across the W…Architecture News Share Lead Architect: Lillesteile House / SKAARA Arkitekter AS 2018 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917328/lillesteile-house-skaara-arkitekter-as Clipboard Lillesteile House / SKAARA Arkitekter ASSave this projectSaveLillesteile House / SKAARA Arkitekter ASSave this picture!© Ivan Brodey+ 21Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects “COPY” Photographs: Ivan Brodey, Erlend Sørlie Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Photographs CopyAbout this officeSKAARA Arkitekter ASOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOsloNorwayPublished on May 26, 2019Cite: “Lillesteile House / SKAARA Arkitekter AS” 26 May 2019.

BrazilAmericas Reports News May 13, 2021 Find out more January 9, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Judge lifts blocking order on YouTube News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America A Sao Paulo judge today issued a statement asking Internet Service Providers to stop blocking access to the entire video sharing service YouTube. The judge nonetheless said ISPs should continue to do everything possible to block the steamy video of soccer star Ronaldo’s former wife.—————-9.01.07Court order blocking access to Youtube called “disproportionate”A decision by a São Paulo court on 4 January ordering Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block access to the US video sharing service YouTube was condemned today as “disproportionate” by Reporters Without Borders, which called for access to YouTube to be restored in Brazil. The court issued its order in response to a petition filed by two Brazilians, who were shown in a steamy video posted on the site.”While it is essential that judges ensure that the right to privacy is respected, blocking access to this site, which agreed to withdraw the offending video, is a radical and inappropriate measure and one that it is anyway ineffective,” Reporters Without Borders said.”We find it hard to understand how a single video, the banning of which did not seem to be a matter of urgency, was able to justify the closure of a website used by tens of thousands of Brazilians every day,” the press freedom organisation added.The court’s order has already been implemented by one of Brazil’s biggest ISPs, Brasil Telecom, which blocked the site’s domain name. Another company, Embratel Participacoes, told Reuters it was looking at ways to block access to YouTube. The Spanish company Telefonica, which also operates in Brazil, announced that it would comply with the order.The video, which was posted on YouTube by several Internet users, showed model Daniela Cicarelli, the former wife of soccer star Ronaldo, together with her boyfriend, Renato Malzoni Filho, on a Spanish beach. They sued YouTube, demanding 89,000 euros (116,000 dollars) in damages for each day the video remained on the website.The court ban remains in effect even though YouTube, which was recently bought by Google, has since removed the video. The video meanwhile remains accessible on many other websites to which access has not been blocked in Brazil.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that a Philippine radio journalist died of his injuries on 1 May after being shot several times by a motorcycle gunman the previous day, and calls on the country’s authorities to identify those responsible. Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Philippine local radio commentator Edmund Sestoso (right) died on 1 May of the injuries received in a shooting attack the previous day, to the dismay of the country’s journalists (photo: Noel Celis / AFP – Facebook).

The gunman also shot the tires of the pedicab whose driver tried to transport him to a hospital. Aged 51 and the father of two girls aged 11 and 13, Sestoso died yesterday in the hospital to which he was taken after the shooting.“We are absolutely horrified by this tragedy and we express our complete solidarity with the Philippine media community, which is once again in mourning,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“Edmund Sestoso worked for the public good by explaining news developments in the Dumaguete region to his listeners, sometimes tackling very sensitive issues. We urge the authorities to do everything possible to find both the killer and instigators, and to not let this crime go unpunished.”The local police have said the shooting was very probably linked to Sestoso’s work as a journalist.Joel Sy Egco, the head of the Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFOMS), told RSF that, until evidence comes to light indicating otherwise, he too is of the view that Sestoso was targeted because of his radio programme. A conflict between rival political factions in Negros Oriental could be to blame. Sestoso used to head the local chapter of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP).He is the first journalist to be killed in the Philippines in 2018 and at least the fifth to be killed in connection with their journalism since Rodrigo Duterte, who is prone to particularly violent verbal attacks on the media, became president in June 2016. Long regarded as one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists, the Philippines has fallen six places in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked is ranked 133rd out of 180 countries.

Using data permissioned directly from their bank accounts, borrowers can apply for a mortgage and verify their assets, income, and employment, all while avoiding the lengthy and often inaccurate experience of verification via paper statements. Direct access to bank accounts has made verification faster, easier, and more streamlined for both borrowers and loan officers.Now, default servicers can harness the same data to predict missed payments and defaults, monitor financial wellness, create new business through refinances, and provide tools to borrowers that help them improve their financial literacy and likelihood to repay.Consumer-Permissioned Data BasicsConsumer-permissioned data is the transactional and account-level information found in a customer’s bank statement, which the customer has permissioned a business to access on their behalf. This all happens in a matter of minutes through a portal that’s branded for the lender or servicer. Consumers can simply select their bank, login to their profile, and permission the selected accounts from which they want to provide data.Regulators recently recognized that the use of this data may improve the speed and accuracy of credit decisions, help firms evaluate the creditworthiness of consumers, and provide similar benefits in the servicing realm.Applying Consumer-Permissioned Data to ServicingOnce a loan has closed, servicers can receive ongoing permissioned data for enhanced visibility into the health of their borrower.By combining transaction data with credit files, servicers can see an up-to-date debt-to-income (DTI) ratio each month. A consistently increasing DTI ratio could signal problems ahead.Similarly, servicers can identify income via direct deposit transactions. Any interruption to vital income could be an early warning sign of a lost job and the potential for an upcoming missed payment.Other indicators, like cash on hand, positive balances, or recency and frequency of transactions, can serve as wellness signals across the life of a loan. Servicers can use these indicators to suggest the right programs to borrowers before, during, or after they default.Servicers can also use this data to make personalized recommendations to their borrowers. These opportunities include refinances, home equity loans or other mortgage products. If you provide services beyond mortgages, you can also use permissioned data to determine who would be a good fit for personal loans, credit cards, or other products offered by your institution.In addition to internal uses, servicers can also share this with their borrowers through a personal finance management (PFM) application. Insights into their own household’s financial situation can help borrowers stay on track or improve habits, reducing the chance of default. In a pilot program, we found that borrowers who used a PFM after a loan modification increased their likelihood to stay current over the next six months.Not only can consumer-permissioned data aid in traditional servicing, but it can also help service loans better, broaden financial products, and even empower your consumers with access to more insights into their financial health and wellness.
