Something with more artistic freedom and definitely more involvement of the actual band, and here we have an amazing collaboration,” he said during the video interview, which is available in full at igamingbusiness.com.Törnqvist also commented on the rapid growth the company has experienced in recent months, leading to a recent investment in new office space at Tigne Point in Malta.“We are investing heavily in people and, in terms of offices, we are growing pretty much everywhere that we are based today. I don’t think we will be opening any new offices in new locations, but we are definitely expanding the ones we have,” he said.Play’n GO is a Swedish slots producer and online and land-based casino platform supplier with a strong focus on omni-channel gaming.To read iGB’s full-length feature going behind the scenes at Play’n GO and watch the video, click here.

The Branch House designed for a couple of avid art collectors, is located on a one-acre lot in the hills of Montecito. The property originally held a 1960’s Ranch House that followed the standard tropes of American suburbia: front yard dedicated to automobile and lawn, and a back yard disconnected from the house. The new house, arranged in the round, is conceived as a cluster of program volumes each with its own unique orientation to light and view. In addition to providing a primary view out to the landscape, each volume also has a skylight to offer a secondary natural light source and a view of the sky. An interstitial connecting-spine lined with glass was designed as the home’s main circulation spine and as a gallery to display art.Save this picture!© David HartwellSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© David HartwellDemolishing the original ranch allowed us to restore the native Oak grove and return the earth to its natural grade. Working closely with an arborist, we built the new house within the Oaks. Where the building volumes came into close proximity to the Oak root zone we floated the house off the ground by means of concrete piles to protect the native trees. New coastal live Oak trees and other native plants were added to promote future growth of the ecosystem around the house.Save this picture!© David HartwellThe main structure of Branch House is an exposed post and beam structure adjusted to the geometry of the house and comprised of engineered Laminated Veneer Lumber. This area of Southern California is known for its wildfires. In 2008, the Tea Fire destroyed many homes in the surrounding community. As a result, local building codes now prohibit the use of non-fire treated wood as an exterior cladding material. To address these code concerns (and the clients’ desire to live among the trees) the house was built with a wood interior structure and a fire-resistive exterior “armor” made of copper tiles. The copper skin was separated from the wood frame with a rain screen. The size and configuration of the copper tiling were tightly tailored to accommodate the segmented geometry of the room volumes.Save this picture!© David HartwellSave this picture!Diagram 01Save this picture!© David HartwellColor and material also play an important role. The copper cladding is developing a patina that over time will further integrate the house into the Oak grove landscape. Much of the rest of the material palette was selected for its raw qualities: Oak doors, galvanized steel guard rails, Douglas fir ceilings, Oak cabinet doors, and concrete chimneys and flooring. The white walls of the gallery, on the other hand, were selected to accentuate the synthetic qualities of the owners’ contemporary art collection.Save this picture!© David HartwellSave this picture!© David HartwellThe “wet” volumes of the house (kitchen, powder room, and bathrooms) are distinguished from the other spaces by floor-to-ceiling, single-color, Heath Ceramic natural clay tile. The richly colored interiors add an element of surprise to the project. The skylight at each of these spaces brings in natural light, making it feel like you are inside a glazed vessel that is open to the sky.Save this picture!© David HartwellProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Caniçada / Carvalho AraújoSelected ProjectsBan Ly School / 1+1>2 ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year: “COPY” Branch House / TOLO ArchitectureSave this projectSaveBranch House / TOLO Architecture Photographs CopyHouses•Montecito, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/961255/branch-house-tolo-architecture Clipboard Manufacturers: Dornbracht, Vitrocsa, Heath Ceramics, IB Roof Systems, Subzero/Wolf, Bartlett’s Fine Cabinetry, Gordon Fiano, Industrial Skylights, Lutron Electronics, Martin Roofing, Unico System Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyAbout this officeTOLO ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMontecitoOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on May 10, 2021Cite: “Branch House / TOLO Architecture” 10 May 2021.

Irish Charity Lab, which aims to improve the charitable sector’s digital skills, is holding two events in September led by President Obama’s digital director during his 2012 campaign.Amelia Showalter and her team’s online marketing is credited with attracting huge numbers of new supporters and donors to support Obama and in being a key element of his successful second term campaign.“There is huge overlap between politics and charity in the digital marketing space,” Showalter told The Irish Times. “For example, in each, staff spends much of its time trying to get people to donate money. Politics is expensive in the US, and a lot of the time you are trying to convince lots of people to donate small amounts to a political campaign, which is similar to the charity sector.”Showalter said both political campaigns and charities must constantly be thinking about how to make better appeals, how to make their websites easier to navigate and simple to donate through.Irish Charity Lab’s was set up by Jean O’Brien to provide free information for the charitable sector to help them to engage more meaningfully in evolving digital channels and realise their full potential.The events with Showalter (former Digital Analytics Director with the Obama campaign) and Glyn Thomas on 5th and 6th September will focus on how to recruit new supporters online. Details can be found on the Irish Charity Lab’s website.

Home Indiana Agriculture News The Future of Agronomy is in Good Hands Previous articleMcKinney Leads Ag Trade Mission to Central AmericaNext articleThe Future of Agronomy is in Good Hands on the HAT Monday Morning Edition Gary Truitt SHARE SHARE The Future of Agronomy is in Good Hands By Gary Truitt – Mar 4, 2018 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Stephen-SchwartzAgronomy will play a larger and larger role in the future of agriculture; and the next generation of agronomists are ready and eager to take on the challenge. At last week’s Commodity Classic, BASF presented a series of scholarships to students majoring in agronomy. Stephen Schwartz, from Hamilton County, was one of those recipients. He told me his passion is helping farmers, “From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be in agriculture; and agronomy looked to be the best way for me to help farmers improve production and increase profits.”The Purdue sophomore says technology is the driving force in agronomy today and will be the key to increasing productivity in the future, “The use of technology in agriculture has advanced in some crazy ways. Not only precision agriculture but the data we now get from on farm equipment can help us understand the information we get in a better way.” He added, along with the advances in genetics, the field of agronomy is a very exciting place to be.Schwartz, who is focusing on crop and soil management at Purdue, also believes that technology will help farmers deal with one of their biggest challenges: soil fertility. “There are going to be constraints on what we can and can’t apply on our fields,” he stated. “Because of those constraints, we are going to have limiting factors on fertility. Being able to manage the nutrients, how we apply it and when we apply it are challenges that technology can help with.”Schwartz says more study and research needs to be down on micro-nutrients like sulfur, “We know a lot about what happens above ground, but we need more study on what happens in the soil.”Being at Commodity Classic, where is newest technology and advances in agronomy is on display really fueled his passion to continue to make advances in this all important areas of agriculture. Along with the other students who were honored by BASF, it is exciting and encouraging to see the future of agronomy is in good hands.The National Corn Growers Association and BASF awarded the William C. Berg Excellence in Agriculture scholarship to five aspiring college students pursuing degrees in an agriculture-related field. The scholarship was created to honor William C. Berg, an Ohio farmer and retired postal worker who passed away in 2012.Scholarships of $1,000 were awarded to the following students: Nicole Gutzmann, a Ph.D. student from Raleigh, North Carolina, pursuing a degree in entomology with a social science minor in genetic engineering and society at North Carolina State University; Emily Kreinbrink. a junior from Columbus, Ohio, studying food science and technology at Ohio State University; Stephen Schwartz, a sophomore from West Lafayette, Indiana, studying agronomy with a focus in crop and soil management at Purdue University; Santiago Tamagno, a graduate student from Manhattan, Kansas, studying agronomy at Kansas State University; and Samantha Teten, a junior from Johnson, Nebraska, studying agronomy at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.Other scholarships were presented by BASF and the National Wheat Growers, Soybean Growers, and Sorghum Growers organizations.
Twitter Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation Local NewsGovernment City considers $3.3M building repairs Previous articleOdessa oilman appointed to University Lands Advisory BoardNext articleTwo injured in Odessa motorcycle crash admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter More information on the City Council’s Finance Committee minutes. WhatsApp The Odessa City Council will consider paying about $3.3 million for repairs to city buildings, drawing on reserve funds flush after booming sales tax in what city administrators describe as needed mechanical and lighting work that will save millions in maintenance costs over the coming decades.The project, after a study by the city’s energy provider Gexa Energy Solutions, would upgrade the mechanical system of the Municipal Plaza and the Odessa Police Department, including air conditioning equipment and related infrastructure. The proposed work also calls for new LED lighting at City Hall in a bid to save on energy costs. Other portions of the project would add a surge protection system at City Hall and fix windows of city buildings that leak air.If the City Council approved the project on Tuesday, the work would be expected to take about nine months.The City Council in January approved paying Gexa more than $168,000 for what City Manager Michael Marrero described as an “investment-grade audit” “to ensure that all the things we suspected needed to be done were in fact looked at and considered.”Marrero said the city’s estimated cost of the proposed work was about $3.5 million more than a year ago.Even though the City Council has not budgeted for the repairs in recent years, officials have reserved $3.5 million for at least two years for the work.The city’s sales tax windfall this fiscal year soared, reaching more than 65 percent greater than what budget writers predicted with the most recent payment to the city in June. That’s a total of about $15 million more than what city official anticipated.Before studying the buildings in January, Gexa had projected about $2.6 million for the repairs. But the estimate increased primarily because of equipment the audit showed the city buildings need and related structural changes to accommodate installation.“As we peeled the onion back, we found some things that are really critical to the operations of the city facilities, and I think they are quite vital to making the buildings do what you intended them to do,” Gexa representative Marcus Johnson said.Gexa also rebid the project after receiving higher-than-expected estimates.Marrero and a maintenance official said that today, the state of the buildings occupies city maintenance workers daily.Johnson said the new system should last more than 20 years.More Information Home Local News Government City considers $3.3M building repairs Facebook Church leaders condemn mayor’s disparaging comments Pinterest WhatsApp By admin – June 21, 2018 Pinterest Smoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionFoolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinTexas Fried ChickenPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Daylon Swearingen competes in bareback riding during the SandHills Stock Show and Rodeo at Ector County Coliseum Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019, in Odessa, Texas.

Therefore we will continue to maintain our stand on behalf of the Donegal Public and send a clear message to the Management of this Council as well as Minister Hogan that the people of this County have suffered enough and will no longer accept these savage cuts from this Government.Having always taken a view that Irish Water was not going to offer a fair deal for the Households across our County, our position has been reaffirmed in recent days with many of the revelations which have come to light. This in effect shows that the lack of information and difficulties in attaining contact from Irish Water has been a smoke screen and an audacious attempt to push ahead with a revenue generating mechanism called Irish Water. Minister Hogan rammed through legislation before Christmas where all of the opposition TD’s walked out of the Daíl, he and his Government are neither prepared nor willing to listen to a view point other than his own or his party’s which flies in the face of democracy. The Fianna Fail group are prepared to take a stand in an attempt to raise the issues which we face on a daily basis and try to force this government to give a better deal to Donegal and it’s citizens .Despite our continued strong representations in regards to being allocated additional funding for Roads and Housing within our County it is unfortunate that our requests have gone unanswered. We cannot accept this and we must ensure that the needs of the Donegal Public are listened to and delivered upon for this reason we are taking a stand. We are asking Fine Gael, Labour and those independents who are supporting the Government to join us in taking a stand in appealing to the Minister to consider our concerns and the needs of the people of Donegal. We want to be a position to provide essential services to the people of our County and therefore we ask Minister Hogan to acknowledge the Democratic Decision that will be taken here today and ensure that Democracy and not Dictatorship rules our County. 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Google+ Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Winter weather alerts are in place across nine states on Saturday as a clipper system will deliver snow from the Rockies through the Central Plains into the Great Lakes.Slick travel conditions are to be expected Saturday morning.Snow associated with a cold front is being pushed to the south by an arctic high pressure system to the north. The snow will begin in Wyoming and move south through the day, ending in Colorado and northern Kansas. Another area of snow will be working through the Great Lakes region on Saturday.Snowfall totals in the Rockies will be 1 to 3 inches throughout the area and up to a foot in higher elevations.Further east, the snow associated with the low pressure will generally bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to parts of Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. There will be slippery driving conditions during the early part of the day.A weak cold front will push across the Great Lakes and bring light snowfall into interior New England through Sunday.Snowfall accumulations are expected to be low, but roadways will be slick, especially overnight Sunday into early Monday, when there is the risk for re-freezing.It will be cold on Sunday for a majority of the country due to the arctic air being ushered in by the high pressure in the Plains. Wind chills will be in the 20s Sunday morning in New York City. It will feel like minus-8 degrees in Ely, Minnesota.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Remote sensing space weather events: Antarctic-Arctic radiation-belt (Dynamic) Deposition-VLF Atmospheric Research Konsortium network
 The Antarctic-Arctic Radiation-belt (Dynamic) Deposition-VLF Atmospheric Research Konsortium(AARDDVARK) provides a network of continuous long-range observations of the lower ionosphere in thepolar regions. Our ultimate aim is to develop the network of sensors to detect changes in ionizationlevels from 30–90 km altitude, globally, continuously, and with high time resolution, with the goal ofincreasing the understanding of energy coupling between the Earth’s atmosphere, the Sun, and space. Thisscience area impacts our knowledge of space weather processes, global atmospheric change,communications, and navigation. The joint New Zealand-United Kingdom AARDDVARK is a newextension of a well-established experimental technique, allowing long-range probing of ionization changesat comparatively low altitudes. Most other instruments which can probe the same altitudes are limitedto essentially overhead measurements. At this stage AARDDVARK is essentially unique, as similar systemsare only deployed at a regional level. The AARDDVARK network has contributed to the scientificunderstanding of a growing list of space weather science topics including solar proton events, the descentof NOx into the middle atmosphere, substorms, precipitation of energetic electrons by plasmaspherichiss and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves, the impact of coronal mass ejections upon the radiationbelts, and relativistic electron microbursts. Future additions to the receiver network will increase thescience potential and provide global coverage of space weather event signatures.
