We spoke to CEO Nik Robinson Casino & games Tags: Online Gambling Slot Machines Q&A: Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Topics: Casino & games Strategy Slots 21st June 2018 | By Stephen Carter Big Time Gaming is among the wave of emerging suppliers shaking up the establshed order in the slots space. We spoke to CEO Nik RobinsonThe slots market hardly lacks for new content. What has enabled BTG to differentiate itself and carve a meaningful presence in the space? We build games that we feel the market needs in the long term, and this is based on gut feeling rather than an analytical view of the current market. For example, MegaWays is four years old but is only just getting the attention it deserves in terms of innovation.Slot development is a long tail game and you have to be prepared to stick to your guns and not look at what the market is doing right now.There’s a lot of wasted opportunity in creating an Irish game to topple Rainbow Riches, or space game to crush Starburst. With art, development, build, testing and compliance on top, it’s a lengthy process getting a game to market and by the time it’s complete the entire landscape may have changed, in the current climate.So to really stand out from the crowd, you need outstanding core mathematics and commitment to delivering a truly engaging experience. Players are far more discerning today than they’ve ever been and ultimately they will decide, slot development can’t be left to chance! You recently licensed your MegaWays mechanic to Blueprint. What was the origin of this deal and can we expect to see similar licensing agreements from BTG in future? The Blueprint deal is not a one-off and we are talking to a range of suppliers with the aim of striking similar revenue-share partnerships.A driving force behind our deal with Blueprint is that it is in the unique position of being able to get our product into land-based casinos. We believe this will further popularise Megaways as a slot genre in its own right alongside traditional three-reel AWP and standard 20-line (3×5) video slots.How does BTG prefer to work with operators and what do you see as the key to a successful operator/supplier relationship? When building a business from scratch, you need to have buy-in from customers on day one. Today, we work with over 100 brands and operators across Europe and North America, but we work closest with the companies that initially put faith in us.Forward thinking companies such as Kindred and LeoVegas have been great supporters in our quest to make the perfect slot and we now reciprocate that faith with timed exclusive slot launches. We are opening this up to GVC this month with Book of Gods and later in June with Donuts for PokerStars Casino. What trends are you seeing in terms of what operators are looking for? Operators aren’t looking for anything out of the ordinary, they want solid performing games that they can depend on to deliver great entertainment to their customers, that ultimately boosts their bottom line.Trends as with musical genres come and go but unlike Bryan Adams and Ed Sheehan, slots such as Starburst and Bonanza can stay in the top 10 for years and years. So back to the question… What are operators looking for? They want to worry less about content so they can focus on customer growth.LeoVegas casino director Karolina Pelc recently told iGB she wished suppliers could be more united in their approach to the market, particularly when responding to regulatory requirements. Do you agree? I agree and find it hard to stomach that developers are still coming out with slot themes that clearly risk appealing to children. The Gambling Commission made a strong call on the subject last year, yet we still see a multitude of developers creating crass content.NetEnt seems to have cancelled its Fairy Tales series of slots and turned 180-degrees into adult mode with a game themed on Netflix Narcos series. I just hope all studios eventually accept we are making games for adults and don’t need any more controversial products in the marketplace.Bonanza was recently dubbed Minecraft for adults, and that’s how slots games should be referred to, and certainly not games for minors.What are the challenges in bringing the industry together in the way that Karolina suggests? Karolina has a good point here and it is really down to best practice from slot studios to make sure there is a level of synergy across a mixed portfolio. With mobile, it all went a bit haywire, with disappearing buttons and unsophisticated iconography.Admittedly, phones at the dawn of mobile gaming were 3.5 inches and this was a necessity but since screen sizes have evolved that’s not the case, and, what’s more, players like buttons. Studios need to adopt a responsive UI structure that can match any TV, tablet, PC or phone, portrait or landscape, big or small.What’s next for BTG? A brand-new genre, our boldest stride yet into what we believe will become a staple for years to come. Expect rumours to emerge of a November release and expect the unexpected.Recently, analysts have described BTG as a disruptive force in online gaming, but really we are here to bring stability with simple ideas, ground breaking innovation, and truly awesome slot games. What’s next for igaming and how do you see the slots market maturing over the next two years? I’ll eat my hat if it’s VR (note to self, buy a hat that’s easy to digest). The market is no longer embryonic, online now accounts for over 10% of all gambling worldwide and like all things digital, a burgeoning landslide is inevitable. As the US begins to open up we’ll see digital take the lion’s share and slots will be key to player engagement, Big Time! Email Addresslast_img read more

first_imgOf the candidates to take on the attack coach role, few standout. Leinster boss Joe Schmidt is the supporters’ favourite following his success with the Irish giants, winning two Heineken Cups and reaching two Celtic League finals in his time in charge.During that time Leinster have played an exciting, expansive game that has produced plenty of tries based around an Irish core of Cian Healy, Jamie Heaslip, Jonathan Sexton, Brian O’Driscoll and Rob Kearney. The performances have been good enough to see Leinster labelled as the best side in the world, along with the All Blacks. The lionshare (sorry!) of the praise heaped on Schmidt  is largely down to his attacking influence. Schmidt’s official availability on taking the position is unknown, but he is known to be keen and would surely be a candidate near the top any Lions shortlist.So who else could be under consideration? You’d expect England’s new attack coach Mike Catt to be in the mix, although his experience of coaching at international level is limited, whilst new Scotland coach Scott Johnson has experience running the attack with both Wales and Australia. Wayne Smith, who was heavily linked with the attack coach position with England before his decision to stay in New Zealand, would also be an outside bet for the role and would surely love to put one over on the Wallabies. Attacking force: Joe Schmidt hugs Jonny Sexton on the way to a second consecutive Heineken Cupby Ben ColesWARREN GATLAND’S feet have provided a tricky start to his career as coach of the British & Irish Lions, with news that the final make-up of his coaching staff would be delayed until December as he continues his recovery from breaking both heels in a serious fall from a ladder in his native New Zealand.A report in the Daily Mail stated that the announcement on Gatland’s deputies will be made in Edinburgh on December 13th, giving the Wales coach time to finalise contract negotiations for a forwards, defence and attack coach. The first two seem simple enough, but the identity of the third member is currently shrouded in mystery.Graham Rowntree was lauded by the Lions players for his coaching during the 2009 tour to South Africa, working closely with a scrum that initially struggled in the first Test against the Springboks before gaining parity in the latter clashes. In the aftermath of England’s dismal Rugby World Cup campaign back in 2011, Rowntree emerged as a rare exception to the dross and disharmony in the leaked reports. England’s pack continue to improve under his expertise and the Lions will be in safe hands with ‘Wig’.Defence again, is sure to be governed by Shaun Edwards, whose mightily successful working relationship with Gatland boasts Premiership titles, Heineken Cups and Grand Slams. Currently working part-time with London Irish, Edwards’ reputation within the game remains outstanding and the prospect of defeating Australia on their own turf after successive defeats with Wales will be a major incentive.Which leaves the final part of the Lions jigsaw. Rob Howley would be the obvious candidate were he not unavailable to tour due to his caretaking commitments with the Welsh national side in Japan, in Gatland’s absence. The Lions outscored South Africa by seven tries to five in the three test series under Howley’s watchful eye, living up to the traditional exciting brand of rugby associated with the touring side. The new attack coach will be expected to do the same. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Discreet negotiations will continue over the next two months before Gatland’s announcement in Edinburgh, but the No 1 choice is clear. Recruiting Joe Schmidt to join an already potent coaching team would be a coup, and increase the chances of the Lions pulling off a first Series win since 1997.Follow Ben Coles on Twitter @bencoles_ BORDEAUX, FRANCE – APRIL 29: Jonathan Sexton of Leinster celebrates with Leinster Head Coach Joe Schmidt during the Heineken Cup Semi Final between ASM Clermont Auvergne and Leinster at Stade Chaban-Delmas on April 29, 2012 in Bordeaux, France.

first_imgThursday Jul 18, 2013 IRB reaffirm commitment to Concussion Management Best Practice The International Rugby Board (IRB) have released a statement detailing their commitment to ensuring that the concussion management procedure, that has been on trial, is being applied properly and will continue to improve and maintain player safety. There was a fair amount of critism levelled at the IRB following the Wallabies-Lions third Test when Wallaby flanker George Smith was clearly knocked out, but allowed to return back to the field and play on. The IRB took note, and have released a statement, which you can see in full below.The International Rugby Board and its Member Unions have reaffirmed their commitment to ensure best-practice concussion management procedure delivery by undertaking a full review of the first year of the application of the Pitchside Suspected Concussion Assessment (PSCA) protocols to further enhance the delivery of the important player welfare tool. The PSCA is designed to give teams and match doctors time to assess cases in which concussion is not immediately apparent and since its introduction as a global trial in 2012 has proven highly successful, leading to 25 per cent more players being removed from the field of play permanently following a head impact. The review, which will be overseen by the PSCA Working Group, is designed to assess the PSCA functionality and compliance, obtain feedback from Team Doctors and collectively ensure that the correct procedures are followed to ensure clear and consistent management of suspected concussion cases and further enhance best-practice delivery. The IRB is a signatory to the 2012 Zurich Consensus statement on concussion, widely recognised as the world’s leading sports concussion forum, and the PSCA protocols were adopted following expert independent neurological input and operate entirely in line with the recommendations of the 2012 statement regarding the on-field management of suspected concussion arising from a head impact. The PSCA allows the team doctors to make their assessment in a quiet situation within a five minute interval. This calm environment away from the field of play and the pressures that come with operating in the middle of an incredibly noisy and often pressurised on-field situation hopefully will contribute to more accurate assessments.The George Smith knock, which sparked some of the criticsmIRB Chief Medical Officer Martin Raftery said: “The PSCA is intended to be a supportive tool for physicians in the elite Game. If a player is clearly displaying the signs of concussion, that player must be removed from the field of play and should not return to play.” “Concussion management is at the very heart of the IRB’s player welfare strategies and the message to players, coaches and parents is clear – if in doubt, sit it out.” “Our Member Unions have supported the PSCA process and recognise the enormous benefits that the PSCA process delivers in this important area of player welfare.” “All head injury incidents occurring within the PSCA trial are logged by the IRB Game Analysis unit for assessment. This review one year on from implementation will enable us to work with the physicians to review all the cases, identify practice learnings and reinforce the importance of following the correct procedures.” “The area of concussion is highly emotive and diagnosis is complex, especially in the heat of the battle, and the PSCA was developed in line with international best practice to assist doctors and give them the best possible platform to assess their players when it is unclear whether concussion is apparent.” “All the evidence suggests that the PSCA is proving to be a very effective tool to protect our players and team physicians are twice as likely to remove players from the field of play than independent medics, but we can and will continue to review and improve our practices to ensure that we are collectively doing all we can.” Meanwhile, the International Rugby Players’ Association (IRPA) has again backed the IRB’s committment to managing head injuries, and driving forward player welfare, highlighting the PSCA as a key tool that puts players first. “It is our view that the PSCA trial has been good for the health and wellbeing of our elite players,” said IRPA Executive Director Rob Nichol. “It must be remembered that the Pitchside Suspected Concussion Assessment is only a tool to assist the medical practioners make a clinical assessment, and that it is not definitive. From the moment a player takes a knock on the field, the medics should observe and assess that player.” “They are responsible for applying their expertise and making the clinical judgement. If a medic is suspicious that a player has concussion at any stage, regardless of the outcome of a PSCA test, then he must be removed from the field of play and not return. This would include displaying symptoms of concussion as the player is treated on field, or as the player is escorted from the field.” “It is about collective responsibility and we will continue to work in full collaboration with all stakeholders to ensure that players are fully educated as this is an area that all in Game take very seriously.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

first_img 2012 Projects photographs:  Juan SolanoPhotographs:  Juan Solano Ojasi , Text description provided by the architects. The Project consists of a 470 m² summer home in the Los Cóndores Country Club of Chaclacayo, north of Lima. The site measures approximately 2500 m², with an extremely irregular geometry and steep inclines, the most dramatic of which is a land depression with obsolete cisterns. To best reintegrate the unoccupied area in the lot ¬¬–its main assett– we pushed the house up against its sheerest front to consolidate the outer area before and below its line of vision. Using a very strong symmetry, the house’s shape consists of two wings in a V-shape that adjust to the terrain’s perimeter, maximizing the flat garden area at the front.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoRecommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingThe entrance to the house is at its far left. A lengthwise, partly-covered gallery runs along the house, integrating all social areas, namely, the vestibule, the living and dining rooms, the kitchen and terrace. The second story holds the private areas: on the left wing, the childrens’ quarters; on the right one, a family porch and, at the center, atop the volume with the greatest hierarchical importance, the master bedroom, with a privileged view onto the valley.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThe house is for someone very passionate about wood so we explored about its uses and different expressions. All the joints were designed to be invisible generating an apparent equilibrium between the pieces that rest one on top of the other. The wooden columns rest on an empty Corten steel frame. The floors, columns and beams of the terrace are Cumaru wood but of different qualities, the knots, streaks and natural features are part of the expression of the material. The shade of woods sticks plays with a gradient of distances that responding to the sun movement. The bougainvillea on the pots of the second floor will grow to give a colorful atmosphere into the space underneath it. Deep vein wood planks were used to form the concrete walls that frames the Olive tree at the entry. The pool has the same treatment side walls of concrete but the floor and backs are treated like a carpet of blue Mosaics. The second floor features a rusted slate surface and around the perimeter of the lot as well as the wall that delimits the pool area is built with local stone.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoProject gallerySee allShow lessEcho Ridge Duplexes / El Dorado IncSelected Projects’Wind Fountain’ Competition Entry / Gembong Reksa KawulaArticles Share Year:  CyD House / V.Oid ArchDaily Save this picture!© Juan Solano+ 12 Share Peru ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/283767/cyd-house-v-oid Clipboard Architects: V.Oid Area Area of this architecture project 2012 Area:  450 m² Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/283767/cyd-house-v-oid Clipboard Year:  “COPY” CyD House / V.OidSave this projectSaveCyD House / V.Oid Houses CopyAbout this officeV.OidOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLimaHousesPeruPublished on October 22, 2012Cite: “CyD House / V.Oid” 22 Oct 2012.

When she is not out reporting she is most likely at a Krispy Kreme drive-through or in an aisle at Barnes & Noble. Previous articleArlington Heights football coach helps guide young college recruitsNext articleCasa Mañana seeks to grow appeal on TCU campus Emily Laff RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printBaby goats and erratic chickens had students smiling this week as they left the TCU Campus Commons.Nearly 500 students gathered in the commons Oct. 14 to enjoy the petting zoo hosted annually by The Crew.For the last five years Down on the Farm has brought a petting zoo, complete with a wide range of animals, into the commons for TCU students.Founder of Down on the Farm Rachel Smith decided to start a petting zoo 10 years ago. She said she wanted to raise animals and have a flexible schedule.She and her family live on a farm in Mansfield where they raise more than 150 animals that make up the petting zoo. Smith said she travels with around 30 animals at a time, with the exception of Christmas at TCU when she usually brings two reindeer.Smith said that one of the most rewarding parts of her job is watching college students interact with the animals.“They’re so much easier than kids because they know how to handle the animals pretty well,” Smith said.In addition, Smith said that she loves when students ask questions when they are unfamiliar with an animal or have never seen it before.“Sometimes students don’t recognize the Zebu,” Smith said, referencing the miniature cow that prompted questions from many students throughout the evening.Brinton Munoz, a senior team leader of The Crew,  said that the petting zoo is an event that usually attracts a lot of students. This is the fifth year in a row that it has been a success.“The students really love the environment that the petting zoo creates,” Munoz said.Sophomore business major Russell Carpenter said he appreciated the atmosphere The Crew created with the petting zoo.“I just got done with studying and  just decided to check out what was going on over here,” Carpenter said.  “I saw the animals and I grew up in Tennessee, so it kind of felt homey.”Students had the chance to pet and brush goats.While some students like Carpenter happened upon the event by chance, others planned to go ahead of time.First-year student Abbey Widick said she did not want to miss the event.“I have missed every other animal that has been in the commons so I literally ran here,” Widick said.  “I think this made my day a lot better, I bragged to my friends at other schools.”Widick was not the only one sharing her TCU petting zoo experience with people. There were several students taking pictures to put on social media to remember the moment.Music education major Adriana Medina said she wanted to share the moment with friends through Snapchat.“I thought about it actually before I Snapchatted because I didn’t want it to ruin the moment, but I kind of wanted to show this moment to people that aren’t here so they could feel good,” Medina said. “It’s just positive energy.”Students posed for pictures with the animals and posted them on social media.Baby goats entertained college students and even some kids throughout the event.Assistant Director for Student Activities Brad Thompson brought his kids so they could enjoy the petting zoo.“I think it’s great, it’s really fun for students to interact with animals. It’s just fun, obviously people love it, ” Thompson said. “It’s just a great event to help students de-stress.”Aside from the animals, The Crew also had a balloon animal maker and a spray-paint tattoo artist to keep students engaged. Munoz said he hoped that students were able to relive a little bit of their childhood and enjoy building community together.Students waited in line for a balloon animal during the petting zoo event.

As RSF reported at the time, she and her newspaper’s publisher, Shobha Chaudhuri, were each condemned to pay 200,000 rupees (2,600 euros) in March 2019 for contempt of court because of an article drawing attention to a court directive on benefits for retired judges. The pair approached the Supreme Court and the decision was eventually stayed. Patricia Mukhim presents her latest book, entitled “Waiting for an Equal World: Gender in the Northeast,” in July 2019 (photo: SheThePeople.TV). And in April 2018, RSF called for a thorough investigation into a kerosene bomb attack on Mukhim’s home that was probably a reprisal for her investigative reporting on illegal mining in which Meghalaya state officials were allegedly involved. India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Follow the news on India RSF_en Urging Meghalaya’s chief minister to ensure that the assailants were prosecuted, Mukhim’s post argued that Meghalaya’s systematic failure to punish ethnic violence against its non-tribal minority put it in the category of a “failed state.” And she concluded by asking: “Should our non-tribal brethren continue to live in perpetual fear in their own state?” News June 10, 2021 Find out more “We call on the members of India’s supreme court to restore the rule of law by invalidating the Kafkaesque charges against Patricia Mukhim,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “This journalist is clearly the victim of a misuse of the justice system and is being punished for using her freedom of speech. The court must end this farce, which borders on judicial harassment.” India is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. “I put up the post as someone who believes in human rights and justice for all,” Mukhim told RSF. Her lawyer asked Meghalaya’s high court to dismiss the case on the grounds that a Facebook post calling for application of the rule of law couldn’t be regarded as promoting discord. But against all logic, the high court’s judges recently upheld the complaint’s validity. “I have no alternative but to approach the Supreme Court with the hope of getting justice there,” Mukhim said.
