Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has reported a year-on-year fall in revenue and a net loss for the first half of 2020, primarily due to the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the operator.Net revenue for the six months to June 30 amounted to $438.0m, down 41.0% from $742.8m in the corresponding period last year.Analysing its performance, CDI said that the main reason for this decline was the suspension of operations at its casinos, racetracks and gaming facilities across a number of states in response to restrictions related to Covid-19.CDI noted declines in revenue across both its Churchill Downs and gaming arms, but was able to report some level of growth within its online gambling business.The gaming division, which was last year CDI’s primary source of income, saw revenue drop 46.6% from $346.4m to $184.9m, with its gaming properties having been forced to close due to Covid-19, but venues have now started to reopen at limited capacity.Read the full story on iGB North America. 30th July 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: US Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address

Located in a conservation area in Islington, this Victorian maisonette has been reconfigured and extended, to convert a previously dark, segmented property into a light, spacious and modern family home.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerOne of the key issues with the property previously, was that the living spaces lacked any connection with the rear external courtyard which felt detached and unusable. Consequently the bedrooms have been relocated from the lower to the upper level, and the kitchen, living and dining areas are moved to the lower floor to enjoy a direct relationship with the courtyard garden. The property has been extended to the rear with large glazed sliding doors and a continuous floor surface ensuring a seamless relationship between internal and external space. Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe lower level is made open plan to maximise the sense of spaciousness. To achieve clean lines, all of the new supporting steelwork is fully concealed within the thickness of the building fabric. Inserted within the large open plan space is a compact and efficient plywood ‘box’ which incorporates a fitted kitchen, staircase, storage, and a desk with adjacent shelving. A utility room and cloakroom are neatly tucked beneath the stairs. The ‘box’ also serves to conceal the lowered floor level of the study area /half landing, which could not be raised due to the configuration of the property above. This allows for a continuous high ceiling soffit throughout the main space.Save this picture!Lower Ground Floor Plan BeforeSave this picture!Lower Ground Floor Plan AfterNatural materials comprising timber, plywood, stainless steel, polished concrete and white plaster are used throughout. The restrained nature of the material palette complements the simplicity of the spaces.

@Benin State House RSF_en @RSF_Inter Organisation News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Benin’s High Authority for Broadcasting and Communication (HAAC) to stop refusing to renew the licence of Soleil FM, an opposition radio station that has had to suspend broadcasting. December 18, 2019 Popular opposition radio station forced off the air in Benin Benin urged to implement findings of Working Group on Arbitrary Detention BeninAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment November 7, 2020 Find out more News Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News News November 11, 2020 Find out more Op-ed urges Benin to end Digital Law threat to journalism The privately-owned radio station had to stop broadcasting at midnight on December 18 on orders from the HAAC, which notified it in a letter on the same day that its permit had “expired” because its renewal application, although submitted in good time, was not successful. The HAAC said the person who signed the application, Soleil FM manager Jérôme Kassa, was not authorized to do this because the original permit was issued to the station’s owner, Sébastien Adjavon , a government opponent now living in self-imposed exile. “We call on the authorities to rescind this decision at once,” said Assane Diagne, the director of RSF’s West Africa office. “It is clear that Soleil FM’s criticism of the government has been a source of annoyance, and that the grounds given for this decision are just a crude pretext for depriving the public of a source of information and for silencing dissent.” Soleil FM is a very popular opposition station and this is not the first time it has had problems. Its signal has often been jammed in the past. Benin is ranked 96th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

RSF_en Receive email alerts Middle East – North Africa Follow the news on Middle East – North Africa News The same six Middle East champions of repression that are near the bottom of the world press freedom index every year have confirmed their status this year again. Free expression continues to be no more than a dream in Iraq (158th), Syria (159th), Libya (160th), Saudi Arabia (161st), the Palestinian Territories (163rd) and Iran (166th). Journalists are subjected to relentless censorship and in some cases incredible violence in these countries. The Palestinian Territories have never before fallen so far in a year. The power struggle between the main factions has taken a disastrous toll on press freedom. The political split between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank has been accompanied by a division of the media. The Israeli military’s responsibility for the death of a Palestinian cameraman employed by Reuters in April and the impunity granted to the soldier who fired the fatal shell account for Israel’s fall (149th outside its own territory) in the ranking.In the Maghreb, Morocco (122nd) continues the fall it began two years ago. The decline in relations between government and press increased significantly with the jailing of journalist Mostapha Hurmatallah. A series of prosecutions of journalists and Internet users has shown that press freedom in Morocco stops at the doors of the royal palace.Lebanon (66th) has risen 30 places as no journalist was on the list of victims of this year’s bombings. The Hezbollah-orchestrated offensive against certain media affiliated to the anti-Syrian opposition left no victims and trigged a wave of indignation in Lebanese society.

News Updates’Low Testing Will Make It Impossible To Make Containment Zones’: Delhi High Court To Hear Tomorrow Plea Seeking Increase In RT-PCR Tests Akshita Saxena26 April 2021 9:14 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court will hear tomorrow an urgent application filed by Advocate Ankur Mahindro, concerning decline in the number of RT-PCR tests being conducted in the national capital. The plea alleges that in the last 4-5 days, RT-PCR tests being conducted by private laboratories have reduced, even when the positivity rates are at an all-time high of beyond 30%. “The disadvantage to low testing or delayed reports is bound to lead to more infection as it is impossible to make containment zones till the time news is received of people testing positive,” it states. The matter was mentioned today before a Division Bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli which is hearing cases pertaining to the Covid-19 situation in Delhi. The intervention has been made in the case titled Rakesh Malhotra v. GNCTD . The applicant seeks a direction to all the laboratories to ramp up testing. “It is important that urgent directives are issued to all private laboratories to furnish before this Hon’ble Court, the number of RT-PCR tests conducted in the last 2 weeks and the time taken to deliver the said reports on an average, including detailed breakup of how much time is taken by ICMR to certify the reports,” the plea states. When the matter was mentioned, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta asked the intervenor to share “best practices” that may be adopted by the Government in this regard. Accordingly, Mahindro suggested: Ramp up Testing ICMR and other concerned authorities to ensure more and more laboratories are being approved to conduct RT-PCR tests.Centre may issue Show Cause notices to all private laboratories in Delhi, directing to disclose their maximum capacities and the reasons why the said capacity is not being met.Centre may order that if any laboratory is found to be unreasonably rejecting to conduct tests, strict action shall be taken against them.Mobile testing vans, as adopted by the State of Maharashtra, be adopted in Delhi as well. Address shortage of RT-PCR Kits Centre may speed up the process of RT-PCR kits being imported by private laboratories, which are stuck in customs.State Government may earmark funds and import RT-PCR machines in order to ramp up testing at Government centres.Other strategies to ramp up testing of residents all across Delhi be used, like pooled testing, which allows laboratories to test more samples with fewer testing materials. It could be used in a scenario where workers of one workplace or one family can be tested together.As of today, apart from RT-PCR tests, private laboratories have started running short on testing kits of other tests related to COVID-19 like D-Dimer test, etc. Immediate steps to be taken in this regard as well to ensure that things may not spiral qua such tests as well. Handling of samples Ensure that samples being collected are handled with utmost care and the Phlebotomists be provided with appropriate ice boxes for carrying of samples. Reduce time taken to furnish testing reports A strict direction be issued to ICMR by the Central Government qua the time taken by the authority to certify the reports submitted by laboratories on its data entry portal. Alternatively, the said process of certification/verification may be automated and done immediately upon uploading of the report on its portal. Cap testing prices Mahindro suggestes that there is a need to take a look at the skyrocketing and exorbitant pricing that the private laboratories are asking today for RT-PCR and other tests related to COVID-19. Standard blood tests being prescribed by the doctors are easily amounting to approximately Rs. 15,000/-. A chest CT Scan, i.e., an HRCT is being charged at a minimum rate of Rs. 3,500/-, a test which is essential for keeping a check on the lungs of a COVID-19 patient.Directions may be passed by the Court or by the State Government so that more and more citizens can afford such tests.Note: The Court will also hear another application concerning acute shortage of Covid-19 medicines in Delhi, such as Remdesivir, Favipiravir, Fabiflu, Tocilizumab etc.Click Here To Download ApplicationClick Here To Download Best PracticesTagsDelhi High Court RT-PCR COVID-19 test Capping of Prices of RT-PCR Tests COVID-19 second wave Next Story
