2nd October 2018 | By contenteditor LeoVegas to tackle industry inequality with ‘LeoRegulus’ Topics: People Strategy LeoVegas has launched a new initiative with the aim of fixing the “imbalance” of gender representation in the technology sector and inspiring more women to pursue a career in the market. ‘LeoRegulus’ comprises a dedicated traineeship programme and award scheme, both designed to offer opportunities to women and organisations in technology. The LeoRegulus Global Traineeship Programme is a 12-month project that places the individual in the company’s ‘Libero’ team, where they will work across all of its product teams. Trainees will be based at the LeoVegas site in Stockholm, Sweden, but will have the opportunity to travel to its other offices around Europe. LeoVegas said at the end of the 12 months, it is “likely” the trainee will be offered full-time employment on a product team of their choice. The LeoRegulus Tech Award will build on this by pledging to grant SEK100,000 (£8,600/€9,700/$11,200) to “an initiative, organisation, or person promoting an increased interest in and awareness of tech/AI among women”. Speaking to iGamingBusiness.com about the project, Gustaf Hagman (pictured), group chief executive of LeoVegas, said that the industry is “missing out on a lot of potential, crucial perspectives and talent” and called for change. “It is something that needs a change when the technology sector in Sweden is booming at the same time as the workforce only consist of 25% women,” he said.“The main goal is of course to inspire more women to pursue a career in tech, both through the difference the Tech Award can make and the career possibilities that the Traineeship Program offers. “At the same time we’re aware that this is only one initiative and many more are needed to make a real difference, therefore we hope that this initiative will motivate more actors in the industry to contribute and do more.” Hagman also urged other companies to take action over the current situation and do more to attract women to technology roles. He said: “Just like any other business in the technology sector we value competence over all other factors, therefore, the imbalance between men and women in the sector is so problematic. “When 50% of the population consists of women but only a fraction is considering the tech industry as a future workplace, we lose a lot of skills and important perspectives that are crucial for the construction of future technology. “Therefore more actors need to acknowledge the problem and do more to help fix this imbalance.” Operator is keen to inspire more women to pursue a career in technology Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling People Email Address

También había que tener en cuenta los funerales y las bodas.Charleston es un sitio popular para la celebración de bodas, y la pintoresca parroquia de 166 años había hecho reservas adicionales para estas ceremonias antes de que se produjera el terremoto.La Navidad y la Pascua presentaban otra interrogante -no había lugar en el mesón- hasta que recibieron una llamada de la vecina sinagoga reformada Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim.David Jaffee, presidente del consejo de KKBE, señaló que la Navidad y la Pascua no son fechas particularmente ajetreadas en el calendario judío, recordaba Emily Guerry, la asistenta del rector, e invitó a que [la congregación de] la Gracia celebrara sus oficios en la sinagoga.“Yo casi me caigo”, dijo Guerry. “Temíamos que tendríamos que alquilar un auditorio”.La iglesia de la Gracia celebró su oficio de lecciones y villancicos de Navidad en la sinagoga, y regresaron para los tres oficios del Día de Pascua: 7:45, 9:15 y 11:15 A.M.“Ellos sencillamente nos hicieron sentir acogidos y como en casa”, dijo Guerry. Los sacristanes estaban disponibles para ayudarnos, así como varios miembros del consejo de la sinagoga. Los miembros de la KKBE ayudaron con los equipos audiovisuales y con los refrigerios, y la sinagoga incluso proporcionó el chocolate que tradicionalmente se reparte en Pascua, dijo el rector de Grace, Rdo. Canónigo Michael Wright, resaltando que estaba adornado con la palabra hebrea que significa “vida”.La oferta de la sinagoga a compartir su “espacio más sagrado” se produjo durante un período de profunda división dentro de la diócesis episcopal de Carolina del Sur, comentó Wright.“Vino en el momento preciso”, agregó. “En lugar de estar pendientes de la división, nos centramos en la nueva unidad que se nos daba con una más amplia comunidad de fe. Dios está en medio nuestro de extrañas y diversas maneras”.Además de la Pascua en la sinagoga, la Semana Santa de la congregación de la Gracia fue una especie de fiesta movible.El oficio del Jueves Santo, con el lavado de los pies, tuvo lugar en la histórica iglesia católica de Santa María de la Anunciación [St. Mary of the Annunciation] (mientras la congregación de Santa María celebraba su oficio en la catedral católica romana de San Juan Bautista [Cathedral of St. John the Baptist]).El Viernes Santo, los feligreses de la Gracia se unieron a la congregación de la iglesia luterana de San Mateo [St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church] para la Adoración de la Cruz -una liturgia luterana con música que proporcionó el coro de San Gregorio [St. Gregory Choir] de la Gracia. (La congregación de la Gracia se unió a la de San Mateo el Miércoles de Ceniza para un oficio en el que usaron la liturgia episcopal).Las Estaciones de la Cruz del Viernes Santo y la búsqueda del huevo de Pascua el sábado por la mañana tuvieron lugar en la Urbanización Episcopal de Jubilados “Obispo Gadsden”. Luego volvieron a Santa María para la vigilia pascual y a la sinagoga para celebrar la resurrección de Jesús.Fue particularmente conmovedor, dijo Nancy Ezell Suggs, directora de vida parroquial de la Gracia, la insistencia de la sinagoga en que nuestra congregación “celebrara su culto de la manera y tradición que es importante para vuestra fe”. Ella también se dio cuenta, dijo, de lo generosos anfitriones que habían sido los de Santa María cuando presenció a la Rda. Callie Walpole, sacerdote de la Gracia, celebrando en el altar.“Ciertamente hemos aprendido muchísimo de la bondad de personas cuyas creencias difieren de las nuestras”, dijo Guerry. “Adoramos al mismo Dios y hemos llegado a conocer eso en un sentido muy profundo. Creo que ninguno de nosotros podía imaginar en nuestros sueños más delirantes que encontraríamos tantos amigos en Charleston”.La iglesia universalista unitaria de Charleston, la primera iglesia presbiteriana escocesa, la iglesia metodista unida de la Trinidad y la iglesia metodista episcopal africana Monte Sión [Mount Zion] también abrieron sus puertas a la congregación de la Gracia para la celebración de funerales, bodas y reuniones parroquiales. Algunas iglesias episcopales de la localidad -la Santa Comunión [Holy Communion], San Marcos [St. Mark’s] y Santiago [St. James’]- también echaron una mano.La iglesia de la Gracia ha tenido su cuota de problemas: la parroquia sobrevivió a un cañoneo durante la guerra de Secesión, a un terremoto en 1886 y al huracán Hugo en 1989, [fenómenos] que también desplazaron a la congregación.En 2005, la parroquia en expansión comenzó a recaudar fondos para agrandar sus instalaciones. Pero cuando intervinieron los arquitectos, tuvieron algunas noticias desalentadoras que dar, dijo Ezell Suggs: “La torre se ha inclinado 15 centímetros, las paredes están inclinadas hacia adentro, tienen algunos problemas. El móvil de la campaña cambio y dejó de expandir el ministerio para salvar nuestra iglesia”.La primera fase del proyecto, una renovación de la torre de la iglesia a un costo de $12 millones, comenzó en 2008 y apenas acababa de terminarse cuando se produjo el terremoto. La torre permaneció intacta, pero los sensores indicaban que las paredes del triforio, de ladrillos recubiertos de estuco -donde el deterioro de la argamasa había dado lugar a que algunos ladrillos se separaran- se habían vuelto inestables.El Día de Pascua, la iglesia de la Gracia puso en marcha una nueva campaña para recaudar $5 millones, bajo el lema de “Un hogar para la Gracia”. Los fondos se usarán para pagar el resto del préstamo por la obra de la torre y para fortalecer las paredes. Los feligreses esperan estar de regreso a su iglesia este verano, aunque las obras no se hayan terminado.“Estábamos casi terminando la primera fase del proyecto y pensábamos que obtendríamos algún descanso”, dijo Ezell Suggs. “No hemos tenido mucho descanso por aquí, pero ha habido un estupendo sentido de cooperación que no nos lo perderíamos por nada del mundo”.“Creo que hemos aprendido que aunque queramos mucho a nuestro edificio y le echemos mucho de menos -y así nos pasa- somos la iglesia de la Gracia dondequiera que vamos”, afirmó Guerry. “La iglesia es realmente el pueblo que acude [a adorar] domingo tras domingo. Hemos tenido que aprender eso de una manera muy práctica”.“En lugar de vivir en el desamparo a la espera de tener un hogar, hemos encontrado hogar en el desamparo”, dijo Wright. “No se trata de conseguir algún otro lugar, se trata de encontrar un hogar ahora”.— Lucy Chumbley es una reportera independiente radicada en Washington, D.C.

Situated near the green woodlands in the north of Curitiba, residence SR32 occupies a 240-m² site with a slope of more than two meters longitudinally and three boundaries free from surrounding buildings, with the north-western portion facing a preserved green area and the northeast giving onto Bacacheri park, a local landmark. To benefit from these conditions the design established a south-facing blind gable (a legal requirement) and three facades opening on to the surrounding landscape. In terms of relief, the highest part of the site was used for the ground floor, benefiting from the slope to create a basement area, which is in fact practically level with the exterior elevation. These conditions, together with meeting low-cost requirements and making use of the space and views, meant that usage was arranged vertically, with the basement housing garage and storage, the ground floor with social and service areas, upper floor with personal spaces and the roof area for leisure activities and contemplation of the landscape. The connection between the different floors occurs by means of a steel staircase with steps set into the blind wall to the south. Steel cables provide protection and definition of the vertical circulation.Save this picture!© Jefferson Carollo FilhoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jefferson Carollo FilhoThe small dimensions of the site led to maximization of the garden area at ground level, setting back the building and using part of the upper floor to provide a roof for the garden-facing barbecue space and deck. In this way, 160m² – accounting for 2/3 of the site area – is used for gardens and ground-level open space. Apart from the small service area, office and washroom, all the other spaces are integrated and face onto the garden, providing a feeling of space and connection with the garden and the woods. The upper floor surrounds a central open area, which provides a visual and spatial connection with the ground floor. Two Jack-and-Jill-bathroom bedrooms face onto the park and an en suite master bedroom faces the woods. There is also a living room convertible to another en suite room, whose bathroom has currently been adapted as a wardrobe. The pizzeria space on the roof area has glass doors that form a visual connection to the hanging garden, with Bacacheri park in the background.Save this picture!© Jefferson Carollo FilhoMost of the materials employed were jointly developed or transformed by the architecture and engineering teams, together with local suppliers. The brick fac-ings were devised directly at the brickworks, which also helps to add value to a craft product made to the south of Curitiba. The ground level flooring is made from polished concrete. The slab itself was ground and polished to produce a shine and highlight the stones in the gravel mix. Apart from the upper-level flooring, the rest of the wood used was pressured-treated pine with a burned finish, further highlighting the summer-winter grain of the timber and providing the necessary texture to prevent slipperiness on the stairway and decking. Leftover wood was used to make countertops and tables. Facade finish used combinations of cement, pigment and acrylic-based plaster applied to the render en-riched with vermiculite, aiming to improve insulation qualities.Save this picture!© Jefferson Carollo FilhoThe building uses several solutions for improving its environmental qualities. Natural lighting is guaranteed throughout the day through the glass roof over the stairway, operating together with the open space in the upper floor, which in turn enables the connection between the floors, providing a chimney effect, with fresh air from the woods entering at ground level and used air exiting through the roof area. For the cold months, a wood-burning stove has been installed on the ground floor, which heats the social areas and also has a specially designed heat chamber with piping to pump warm air to the upper-story bedrooms. The alternative heating and cooling systems mean that the house has no need for installation of any air conditioning. Rainwater collection and solar heating systems add to the residence’s strategies for low environmental impact.

Charities are missing out on fundraising opportunities because they are noteffectively targeting ethnic minority communities, according to a reportcommissioned by the London Development Agency (LDA). The report, entitled “Reaching Multicultural Britain”, also highlights the need for charities to do more to enable them to recruit staff from diverse communities. The report by Milestone Research for the Mayor’s agency for business and jobs surveyed some of the UK’s leading charities to look at how they could improve relationships with ethnic minority communities, especially in areas such as fundraising.It features details of some charities which have been successful in this area. Case studies show how Shelter, Help The Aged and Macmillan Cancer Relief have all developed successful partnerships with various ethnic minority communities. Advertisement Shelter for example has been successful in not only recruiting but also retaining and developing ethnic minority fundraisersin the mainstream voluntary sector. It did this by introducing procedures that include:advertising vacancies widely, including, where appropriate, in black andethnic minority publications.supplying information in different formats, which is indicated on the jobadvertisements.all applicants are asked to complete a monitoring form to ensure that theycan monitor their success and make any necessary improvements in attractinga diverse range of candidates.periodic reviews of their recruitment methods to make sure people areshortlisted, interviewed and appointed fairly, consistently and solely onthe requirements of the job.all members of staff attend an equal opportunities training course.all managers attend recruitment and selection training to ensure that jobapplicants are treated equally and with respect.Shelter’s Senior Management Team recognise the importance of a diverseorganisation and have made this a strategic goal. They have established a Diversity Group to look at issues specifically relating to this area and are currently in the process of recruiting a Diversity Manager.However the LDA report recommends that the voluntary sector as a whole needs to improve links with the UK’s ethnic minority communities, not least because they are estimated to have a total disposable income of over £13 billion. Manny Lewis, Deputy Chief Executive of the LDA, said: “This research is a useful contribution to the debate on how charities can improve their links with ethnic minority communities, particularly in London. The case studies in this report show how charities can benefit from accessing untappedfunding, but also in finding people for key fundraising jobs.”The report recommends that charities: encourage directors and personnel officers to work more closely togetherto look at their monitoring and recruitment processes and put in placeappropriate strategies to promote job vacancies within diverse communities. use the ethnic minority press more to publicise their vacancies withinlocal, regional and national ethnic minority and voluntary sector networks and with ethnic minority business and professional networks.share good practice in the recruitment and training of staff, taking intoaccount ethnic diversity.consider developing fundraising partnerships with individual ethnicminority organisations – through joint campaigns using models such as theHelp the Aged/HelpAge India and Macmillan Cancer Relief/Cancer Black Carepartnership campaigns.encourage community and volunteer fundraisers to form links with localethnic minority community fundraisers and with local community and voluntaryorganisations to promote joint fund-raising events and activities.The report ‘Reaching Multicultural Britain’ can be downloaded from the LDA’s Web site in Microsoft Word format (505 Kb). 27 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

At the Servicing & Compliance Lab led by Michael S. Waldron, Chief Compliance Officer, Bayview Loan Servicing, experts discussed strategies to enhance operations, manage costs, and assist homeowners.Hosted by Altisource and Co-Hosted by BRON, Situs AMC, Consolidated Analytics, Ernst & Young, and National General Lender Services, the discussions at the Servicing & Compliance Lab revolved around the present and future of servicing, expectations from new housing policies, and technological innovations in servicing operations.At the REO Lab hosted by Home Depot Renovation Services and Co-Hosted by Altisource, Constructive Management, and Five Brothers Asset Management, Lab Director Andrew Oliverson, VP, REO Operations, Green River Capital, led discussions on the challenges of REO disposition.”The challenge that agents have had in the past and may still have is staying relevant as auctions become bigger,” Oliverson said. “You’ve got to continue to be that local expert. Its important for agents to be engaged and know their local market.”The lab deep-dived into critical topics facing the REO business. They included insights on working with government agencies, the future of asset management, how technology’s shaping the REO business, and advances in alternative disposition strategies.”Make yourself a resource,” commented Rida Sharaf, SVP of Operations, USRES.The education sessions will continue on Wednesday with expert insights and keynotes during the Diversity & Inclusion Lab, Foreclosure Lab, and Fintech Lab.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — A major winter storm that pummeled the Southeast has become a “nightmare and a tragedy” in North Carolina, claiming at least two lives, the governor said, as he warned drivers to be cautious of snowy roads and dangerous ice.The storm has dropped staggering amounts of snow, ice and rain across North Carolina, with a year’s worth of snow falling in some places in just one day, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Monday.A driver died in Matthews, NC, on Sunday after a tree struck the car. The driver then plowed through the front lawn of a church, hitting the building and causing minor structural damage, local police said.In Haywood County, a woman on hospice care died, Cooper said, and another possible storm-related death is under investigation.Now the South is digging out from what Cooper called a “mammoth winter storm.”While up to 20 inches of heavy, wet snow fell in North Carolina, the storm also brought 2 feet of snow to Whitetop, Va.Richmond, Va., had its second-snowiest December day on record and double-digit totals were reported in South Carolina, Tennessee and as far west as Texas.Parts of West Virginia saw a whopping 20 inches of snow.Freezing temperatures could turn wet and slushy roads into ice rinks in some areas on Tuesday, Cooper warned Monday.Cars were abandoned amid the snow and sleet. A four-wheel drive plow even became stuck in 1 foot of snow in Greensboro, NC.In Virginia, state police said they responded to over 1,000 car crashes on Sunday.Due to the heavy snow and freezing temperatures overnight, state police on Monday are urging Virginians to avoid driving in the western, southern and central regions of the state.Gov. Cooper added Sunday, “Travel conditions are extremely hazardous. Don’t put your life and the lives of first responders at risk by getting out on roads covered with snow and ice.”The storm not only canceled over 1,000 flights on Sunday, it also left more than 276,000 people without power across seven states Monday morning. Over half of the power outages are in North Carolina.The forecastThat storm now has moved to the coast, just off the Carolinas. Wet snow was falling Monday morning in the mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.Snow and rain are expected to continue falling in the Southeast as the low pressure slowly begins to pull away from the coast. Not much snow accumulation is expected.The Southeast will remain chilly into Tuesday, with early-morning wind chills in the 20s and 30s for many areas.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Willoughby Hills Police(CLEVELAND) — Convicted killer Samuel Little — who has confessed to dozens of murders — says he was behind the death of a young woman whose skeleton was found in Ohio in 1983, according to police.But that woman is still unidentified, and before investigators potentially move forward with charges, they’re looking to find out who this mystery victim is.The woman’s skeletal remains were discovered on March 18, 1983, in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, about 20 miles outside of Cleveland, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).She was believed to be between 17 and 24 years old, according to NamUs.Her remains may have been there anywhere between two to five years, Willoughby Hills Police Detective Jamie Onion told ABC News on Tuesday.The preliminary medical exam did not find a cause of death, Onion said, though investigators speculate it was homicide.Little, a 78-year-old who has confessed to 93 murders spanning 1970 to 2005, says he is responsible for the death of the woman left in Willoughby Hills, according to Onion.Over half of Little’s 93 confessions have been confirmed, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said Friday.Little remembers his victims in great detail and has drawn pictures of many of the women he says he killed, according to the FBI.Onion interviewed Little in 2018; he said the convicted killer “did disclose to us that he believes our female is someone that he … did strangle back in the late 70s.” According to Onion, Little said the killing took place in Cleveland before the body was left in Willoughby Hills.Onion added, “We’re not comfortable moving forward with charges until we identify the female and make sure that we can put her in the area.”The woman found in Willoughby Hills was wearing a blue or green dress, a black or dark blue sweater and black heels. She was wearing jewelry including a gold Elgin watch, a cross necklace and a gold ring, according to NamUs.Anyone with information about her is asked to call Detective Onion at 440-918-8727 or Detective Ron Parmertor at 440-918-8725.When Little was arrested in 2012 on a narcotics charge, LAPD detectives found that his DNA matched three unsolved slayings from the 1980s, said the FBI. Little said he was innocent, but he was convicted and given three consecutive life sentences, said the FBI.Little was extradited to Texas in 2018 where he pleaded guilty to a fourth murder and received another life sentence, O’Malley said.On Friday an Ohio grand jury returned an indictment against Little for the murders of two Cleveland women in 1984 and 1991, O’Malley said. Both women were strangled, he said. Despite Little’s four life sentences, a warrant has been issued for Little’s arrest, O’Malley said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

The JCR President of Pembroke has criticised The Times for its publication of its article, ‘Oxford’s value for money league table points way forward’. The newspaper has been accused of manipulating the findings of Oxford University’s Student Union college inequalities report in order “to widen the discrepancy between colleges.” Exeter College emerged at the top of a league table, published alongside The Times article, that ranks Oxford colleges according to the value they offer students. Harris Manchester and Pembroke were placed bottom for providing the least for students’ money. Ryan McGhee wrote to The Times, along with nine others who had compiled the Student Union study, claiming that the article fails “to compare like with like – your table compares the highest rent bands in the most expensive colleges with the lowest rent bands in the cheapest ones.” The table exposes a huge discrepancy between the wealthy colleges, which can afford to use cheap rents as an incentive for the brightest students, and those at the bottom which in general produce lower Norrington Table results for a far greater charge. Exeter is almost twice as good value as the bottom colleges according to the study, which compares colleges’ academic record with the cost of attending them. Robin Hopkins, JCR President at Exeter, said that any excitement about Exeter topping the table was overshadowed by current negotiations over rents and charges. However, he said students do currently feel happy that they are not overcharged and believe food and accommodation are good value. However, the decision to write to the Times was unpopular with some of those named as having signed the letter. One JCR President feared that the Student Union would be seen as petty and that the article as a whole reinforced the original report’s conclusions.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003
