first_img Topics: Casino & games Lottery Sports betting Strategy Table games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finnish betting and lotteries agency Veikkaus is to cut 400 jobs from its land-based, table-gaming business in order to focus more on digital activities. Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus is set to cut some 400 jobs after revealing plans to end table-gaming activities in restaurants and switch focus to its digital business.Veikkaus plans to speak with around 1,300 of its 2,000 employees about taking redundancy, with the majority of these based in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.The company noted that the majority of individuals who are set to lose their jobs are part-time employees.The job cuts form part of a wider initiative at Veikkaus, whereby the company is also seeking to reorganise its retailer and chain cooperation.Veikkaus said the move will help to reform its cost structure and boost efficiency across its operations. The company adds that the planned changes will not affect retailers’ point-of-sale network.Olli Sarekoski, president and CEO of Veikkaus, said: “We want to ensure Veikkaus’ future in the middle of the ever-accelerating digital competition.“Players are increasingly switching over towards the digital channels and, as a result of the structural changes in retail trade, our point-of-sale network has experienced a drastic decrease over the past few years.“This is why we are planning to introduce significant changes to our own points of sale, as well as to end the restaurant table gaming activities.”Closure of the table-gaming business in restaurants forms the latest stage of the company’s plans to focus more on digital activities. In September, the company made a series of changes to its executive team to support this effort.Veikkaus currently operates 187 game tables in 162 restaurants across Finland, as well as 6,500 retailer points-of-sale and its Veikkaus.fi online gaming domain.The company said gaming activity among its customer base is moving towards digital, with 42% of turnover now attributable to this part of the business. Its Veikkaus.fi site, which offers around 200 casino games, has 600,000 users every week.

Photo: Angie Kremer[Episcopal News Service] On Nov. 11 at 11 a.m., the worship service at the American Cathedral in Paris paused so parishioners could listen to the peals of church bells sound across the City of Lights, just as they rang 100 years ago to signal the Armistice and the end of Word War I.As the United States observes Veterans Day today, around the world and especially throughout Europe, special events — including visits by dozens of heads of state — have been held to mark the centennial anniversary of the end of the Great War. The American Cathedral, part of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, commemorated the occasion with two special events.The convocation’s bishop-elect, the Rev. Mark D.W. Edington, preached at the memorial service on Sunday. And on Nov. 10, the cathedral rededicated the Battle Memorial Cloister, the first monument ever erected for the American casualties of World War I, according to historian and parishioner Ellen Hampton.In a video about the cloister, Hampton shared that, shortly after the war ended, families began asking to erect plaques in honor of their loved ones, but the priest and vestry opted for another, all-inclusive memorial and raised funds for the Battle Memorial Cloister. The memorial honors the 116,000 American casualties of World War I, as well as civilian units that supported France before the United States officially entered the conflict in 1917.The cloister is lined with plaques commemorating the fallen and features the insignia of the American armed forces, as well as scenes from major battles.Ironically, little room was left in the cloister for plaques for the dead in World War II. When the cloister was designed, there was no thought of it needing to be bigger; World War I was considered then to be the war to end all wars, Hampton explained.Parishioners Charles Truehead and Ann Dushane, along with the Very Rev. Lucinda Laird, the cathedral’s dean, have led the arrangements for the commemoration events. The rededication on Nov. 10 featured World War I poetry and special music.At the close of the service, attendees placed poppies on a wreath of remembrance, a tradition with its origins in the 1915 poem “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae.“Something our bishop-elect wrote recently might help put this in context,” said Trueheart. “He wrote that a church is a community of memory. … Here is an example of memory with a capital M, where we are coming together to remember the dead and the people who came before us at the cathedral for something that mattered for them and was cataclysmic to the world.”For the American Cathedral, participating in this type of commemoration is part of its duty, Trueheart said, both as a worshipping community and as a cathedral committed to opening its doors to the broader community. This dedication to community has been a hallmark of the church throughout its history. The Rev. Jason Leo, now canon for transitions and congregational vitality for the Diocese of Southern Ohio, grew up at the American Cathedral, when his father Jim served as dean.“Every year on the anniversary of D-Day, there were celebrations and commemorations throughout the city,” Leo said. “The cathedral was a hub for all of this. I was 16 years and remember sitting in a pew behind a U.S. president during a service and thinking that this was a pretty big deal. But certainly, the most moving experience was to look out into that enormous worship space and see one veteran in kneeling in silence: the memories of friends, immeasurable sacrifice, and the blessing of freedom, all being offered to God in prayer.”During the service, Trueheart shared the story of one of the Americans who volunteered to fight in the foreign war: a young poet, Alan Seeger, who died on July 4, 1916. His name might sound familiar. The American Library in Paris was created, in part, to honor Seeger’s history, and his way with words became a family tradition, carried on by his nephew, folk singer Pete Seeger, Trueheart said.The service included one of Seeger’s poems, “I have a rendezvous with death.” In the poem, Seeger contrasts the life he could have led, “Pillowed in silk and scented down … Where hushed awakenings are dear…” with the one that he chose in the fight for freedom, “At midnight in some flaming town, / When Spring trips north again this year, / And I to my pledged word am true.”– Richelle Thompson is deputy director and managing editor of Forward Movement.

Before having the new look as you’re seeing, K. House is a 50sqm 4th-grade house with a wooden mezzanine. The house is located in an existing residential area of ​​Thu Duc District, a suburb of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Homeowner – a friend of mine decided to buy this house because she like the quiet alley and the building has many sides openning.Save this picture!© Quang TranIf re-building, the building will lose 1/3 of the site under the extending plan of the Government. Therefore, we choose to renovate the building and keep all the surrounding wall. K. House was born to become the nest of the three brothers and sisters in a family which belong to 8X and 9X generation. They are young people following the mobilism. They choose Saigon to study, work and settle for a long-term. Each one has different hobbies and demands for their living spaces.Save this picture!© Quang TranSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang TranThe plan to design and construct were going so fast because my friend had a lot of understanding of the interior and architecture design. We wanted a cost-saving simple house, but having many amenities and reflecting the personality of the owners. We keep the old frame and use prefabricated steel frame for the bearing structure in order to save cost and shorten the construction time. The ecological onduline roofing is used as a cover outer the two layers of wall and is the variation of the folding windows.Save this picture!© Quang TranSave this picture!1st Floor PlanSave this picture!2nd Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang TranWe also created an open space to help K. House to be spacious and airy. The ground floor is full of light with 4 tall windows, the stairs are combined with the large skylight. All the bedrooms have at least two windows that welcome natural light and wind. It is interesting that the house has many secret flexible doorways helping open to amazing new spaces. A storage area and restroom are located below the stairs. The main bedroom can open to the garden, the skylight, and the 5-star standard bathroom. We use the available materials as finishing materials cum covering such as grinding stone, bamboo pole … to save cost and make K. House more closely and serene.Save this picture!© Quang TranThe homeowners love the simplicity and elegance. We use the natural sunlight (filled in all the rooms during the daytime), pure white “soft” furniture and grinding stone, a rustic bamboo poles and oak furniture – all are made manually. The only highlight is the red background running throughout all the rooms, subtle improvisation. We use spot lighting at night with the maximum consideration to bring to the house a lot of emotions. All the elegance, emotion and personality of K. house is a part of our senses about the owner’s style. We just try to show this in our design. Maybe you should come, experience and enjoy at K.

The five-story building comprises of 14 modern residential lofts and commercial spaces, offering panoramic views of the city. The architect’s urban design maximized the potential of the limited area, amplifying the plot through an irregular polygon floorplan and a geometric sculptural staircase. A commissioned site-specific light installation by artist Petr Dub adorns the building’s exterior. With its location near the center, the building will provide benefits of urban living to its inhabitants, becoming a landmark of the area.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe Urban Infill Lofts are located in a former industrial district, which is currently undergoing a large transformation. As CHYBIK + KRISTOF’s design is the first substantial project southeast of the city center, the architects encourage further urban development in the existing area, emphasizing, “In a complex urban structure, infills are a pragmatic solution for sustainable urban change. Promising existing plots and infrastructures need to be revisited and redesigned.”Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe neon light installation crowning the top floor mimics the verticality of the building’s physique. “The Riders on the Storm,” an installation by Petr Dub imitates a lightning rod, inspired by the Doors song. The design references “the house we were born in,”emphasizing the close relationship people have with their homes.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauCHYBIK + KRISTOF’s design is twofold; influenced by the historical aspects of the area while simultaneously utilizing modern design elements. The dominant feature of the building are the large windows, a nod to the industrial heritage of the building, accompanied by private terraces. Historically, corner buildings are at the intersection of a main meeting point, and act as visual urban anchors in navigating the city – they are defined by their verticality and the decorative elements that mark their importance.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe lofts stand on an unused site, intersecting two buildings. At the heart of the building is a sculptural staircase, connecting the ground floor tenant space. On a limited area of 269 m2, the architects have built a five-story building with a total floor area of 1200 m2,. The lofts offer 8 standard 1-bedroom flats and ateliers on the 1st and 2nd floors and 6 lofts of 1-bedroom to 3-bedroom layouts on the 3rd and 4th floors, with areas ranging from 41 to 91 m2.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauThe building was constructed with a cohesive selection of materials, creating a fluid palette of reinforced concrete, ash wood, and sleek white walls. The design conscious lofts are affordable and available to a broader demographic. “The socially integrated strategy informed the interior design of the building. Through using more affordable materials, we were able to open the so open the spacious lofts to a diverse spectrum of inhabitants.” Ondřej Chybík explains.Save this picture!© Alexandra TimpauProject gallerySee allShow lessRethinking Sacred Spaces for New PurposesArticlesIl Sereno Hotel / Patricia Urquiola StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Brno, Czech RepublicLocation to be used only as a reference.

The brief was to provide European-style architecture and interior design. The creation of apartments with a southern-facing aspect was key to the design, for only south-facing units would sell to the demanding Chinese clientele.Save this picture!© Qingshan WuSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Qingshan WuThe monotone, parallel rows of apartment blocks characteristic of China were rejected in favour of powerful buildings, each with their own individual character. Above ground, the floor area of some 120,000m2 was distributed over three differently shaped tower blocks that are linked at ground level by a pedestal storey. The arrangement of the towers ensures that at least some of the rooms in each apartment are south-facing. Based on a detailed solar analysis, the tower footprints were angled and their heights staggered to prevent excessively long shadows being cast on any of the blocks. Save this picture!© Qingshan WuSave this picture!© Qingshan WuAn organic composition of abstract sculptural forms. The towers appear to meld together or split apart depending on the viewer’s perspective. Roof gardens on the staggered roofs offer breath-taking views overthe city. To the south-west, the pedestal storey is immersed in the surrounding parkland, opening up only towards the street to the north-west, where the block entrances and retail space lie behind a two-storey façade. The pedestal storey also houses a conference area and a wellness suite for residents. These areas, which are recessed into the park landscape, receive daylight through round courtyards cut into the pedestal.Save this picture!© Qingshan WuThe project is defined by the sculptural force of its façades. Profiled concrete strips run in gentle curves around the buildings, underlining their object-like autonomy. The outer layer takes the form of an in situ cast concrete façade, the glass façades set back up to two metres and creating deep terraces.
