So I expect them to be more active.”Privately-held Facebook recently raised $1.5bn (£932m) from investors including Goldman Sachs and Digital Sky Technologies, as well as through a private offering to overseas investors conducted by Goldman Sachs, at a valuation of roughly $50bn.Earlier this month, investment firm General Atlantic bought a stake in Facebook at a $65bn valuation, according to a report on CNBC.Zoufonoun, who has worked at Google since 2003, according to a biography on LinkedIn, will report to Facebook’s Vaughan Smith, who oversees the company’s overall corporate development efforts. But Zoufonoun will become the key person overseeing Facebook’s M&A efforts, according to the source, who wished to remain anonymous.“He’s really going over there to build some professionalism into the team and to hire folks,” said the source.A Facebook spokesperson confirmed the move but declined to provide further comment. Google had no immediate comment.Last year, Facebook acquired ten companies, its most ever, including location service HotPotato and Chai Labs. The blog Inside Facebook quoted Smith as saying the company hoped to do “doublish” the number of deals in 2011.Zoufonoun’s move is the latest sign of Facebook’s ambitious expansion plans and underscores the rivalry between the social networking company and Google.

Snaitech online soars as Playtech takeover completes

first_img Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Snaitech online soars as Playtech takeover completes 3rd August 2018 | By contenteditor Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Italian sports betting giant enjoys digital gains ahead of Italian clampdown Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finance Topics: Finance Snaitech, Italy’s biggest sports betting firm, signed off with a bang today (Friday) by reporting a huge increase in online takings as its $1bn takeover by Playtech was finalised.Snaitech, which has now delisted from the Milan Stock Exchange, said online betting grew by 23% to €255m ($295m) in the first half of the year, with online games up by 22% to €674. It said its sport figures were aided by the first two weeks of the Fifa World Cup, despite Italy’s absence, as well as marketing improvements.However, retail performance at its 1,600 properties was less positive, which will be a particular concern with Italy’s advertising ban expected to pose a significant challenge to the online market.Retail sports betting was down by more than 2% to €376m despite the World Cup. Overall, Snaitech took €80m in wagers on the World Cup – double the 2014 total – and generated revenue of €11.6m.Total wagers were up by 2% in comparison with 2017, at €5.3bn, while earnings of €74m were up by one-third to €18.5m.According to recent figures, Snaitech is Italy’s biggest sports betting firm with an online and retail market share of 15%, which puts it ahead of its closest rivals, Planetwin365 and Eurobet.Playtech confirmed this morning that the ‘squeeze out’ of minority shareholders has been finalised, resulting in Snaitech becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary some four months after the $1bn takeover was first announced. Snaitech’s results from June 5, when the takeover was sealed, will be included in Playtech’s financial statement later this month.It has been a busy period for Snaitech, which was last month awarded a licence in Spain – its first venture outside Italy. It has linked up with operator Apuestas de España to launch Apuestas by Snai in the country through its BetSmart platform.“The Snaitech universe is being transformed and is driving the company beyond its position as an Italian market leader,” Snaitech managing director Fabio Schiavolin (pictured) said last month. “After launching in July, in the following months we want to expand our presence in the Spanish gaming sector in different autonomous communities.”last_img read more

Help for Heroes 2 – North v South match

first_imgThese people need specialist, high-quality help and many are suffering post-traumatic stress or other conditions. They need our help and this is rugby’s way of helping. We’ve never made any political statements about going to war, whether it’s right or wrong. What we’re about is looking after soldiers when they return.After the 2008 match we said we could never do another one but so many people said “Let’s do it again” that we relented. What happened to change our stance was the way people have reacted.Tickets for this fantastic event are on sale now from ticketmaster.co.uk or on 0844 847 2492. If you buy just one rugby ticket in 2011, this has to be it.This article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK Johnson and Dallaglio played in the first Help for Heroes match in 2008Three years after the first Help for Heroes rugby match raised £1.4m for our servicemen and women, we’re going back to Twickenham on 3 December for Help for Heroes 2.In 2008 it was a Help for Heroes team against the Rest of the World and we attracted 54,000 to HQ. This time it will be a battle of the hemispheres, North v South – a match people have tried to stage for years.We’ve already enlisted a stellar list of former greats to be team managers and their prime objective will be to recruit the players. From the North we have Lawrence Dallaglio, Jason Leonard and Ieuan Evans, and from the South Sean Fitzpatrick and Michael Lynagh. World-class coaches will be appointed in due course.Last time we selected six servicemen – two from each service – per side. So this time we’re planning to have six servicemen from each hemisphere. There will be a number of young players, and alongside we’ll recruit some of the biggest names we can find.JP Morgan are on board as the main sponsor and it will be covered live on Sky Sports, two deals that swell the coffers before we’ve started. We’re mindful that staging a game like this brings huge costs, not just at Twickenham. Transporting and housing that many players in London isn’t cheap, so packing out the ground is our priority.We love the fact that the Barbarians are playing Australia at Twickenham a week earlier, because it brings two dozen of the biggest names from the southern hemisphere to London. We hope a few will decide to stay on in London for another week!The fund-raising efforts of the Help for Heroes charity has moved on in the past three years and now – with a number of other services charities – we want to raise money for recovery centres that are being established across the country. These will be places for these guys and girls to go to, to reassess what’s going on in their lives and get further help. These will be bases around the country, converted stately homes, those sort of places which will be upgraded to receive these wounded soldiers and give them further help – it’s a £100m project.

This small private residence situated in a rural agricultural village of Gangneung. The slightly elevated site on the start of a hill enjoys an almost panoramic view of the surrounding which is dominated by local mountainscape. Started by investigating a way in which Korean traditional villas forming intimate relationships to the external spaces from each room, the design of this house tries to emulate this relationship between interior and exterior throughout the building. In traditional Korean villas, the organisation of the building uses linear volumes to maximise the contact with external spaces. In this house linear volumes are used to create simple two storey building, two bands of volumes forming a knot, and throughout the house multiple frames of views of outside to different directions are introduced and access to the exterior spaces are provided from every room. The two rings of volumes which is sharing the circulation space of the house functionally separates the private living spaces to the more public area within the house. The exterior of these two bands are distinguished by different materiality as well. Also this ring of volumes creates outside spaces that are interwoven into the building forming terraces, courtyard and gardens.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinIn this house, double loops are introduced as a device for carrying the property of either ‘typical’ or ‘a-typical living’ that is categorized according to its domestic use. The one relates to more private functions such as bedroom, kitchen, bathroom etc. whereas the other does to more semi-private uses like guestroom, gallery, tea room and so on. By means of combining them without diminishing their own characteristics, the dynamic relationship between them has been established for constructing totality of living. In the design process, the interaction between them produces a certain indeterminacy which triggers spontaneous use of space.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinAs an actualization process, loops are unfolded to the bands corresponding to spatiotemporal sequence of activities. They are utilized for coding information as a medium to absorb programmatic requirements, according to which each activity in the band were translated into width, depth and height of space. Eventually, the coded bands are folded back to loops, which are interlinked to be a totality of living.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Muko / FujiwaraMuro ArchitectsSelected ProjectsLos Faiques Dwellings / DURAN&HERMIDA arquitectos asociadosSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/350126/living-knot-polymur Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/350126/living-knot-polymur Clipboard Year:  Architects: Polymur Area Area of this architecture project 2012 Housescenter_img 2012 CopyAbout this officePolymurOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGangneungHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on March 27, 2013Cite: “Living Knot / Polymur” 27 Mar 2013.

Limerick council accused of obstructing democracy

first_imgTwitter #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick NewsCommunityLimerick council accused of obstructing democracyBy Alan Jacques – May 8, 2014 599 Advertisement Cllr Maurice QuinlivanSINN Féin councillor Maurice Quinlivan has accused City Council for failing to assist in the registration of first time voters at a planned community event in Thomondgate ahead of the local and European elections.According to Cllr Quinlivan, City Council turned down a request to have an official in attendance at a recent voter registration day organised for St Munchin’s Community Centre. The community event was organised to facilitate young people wishing to vote but who had not yet registered in the Limerick City North ward.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “In the northern end of the city, we have come across a number of young people wishing to vote, but not yet registered. Given these high numbers, a non-political voting registration event was to be held on April 23 at the St Munchin’s Community Centre,” Cllr Quinlivan explained.He claims that the voter registration day had to be cancelled due to that fact that a Council official was not in attendance. “I am appalled that the Council would put obstacles in the way of those who wanted to partake in the democratic process”, he said.“I find it appalling and peculiar that the Council officials denied a request for a Council Official to be in attendance on the day,” he said.Although registration closed on Tuesday, May 6, Cllr Quinlivan invited other political parties to join in the attempt to increase voter participation in future elections.A spokesperson for Limerick City Council stated that the onus is on a citizen to make sure they’re registered to vote and the details they provide are correct.“Limerick City and County Council provided forms to the community event concerned and a Garda was present to sign these forms and check identification and proof of residence so that voters could then be added to the Electoral Register,” the council spokesperson said.
