Spot prices of NAND flash memory chips used in the fast-growing mobile devices market, rose nearly three per cent yesterday after a 20 per cent jump on Monday, while dynamic random access memory (DRAM), microcontrollers chip prices gained 0.2 per cent on top of a seven per cent rise on Monday.Demand for NAND flash memory chips has been surging, led by mobile devices and tablets like Apple’s iPad 2. Apple said yesterday it was delaying the launch of its iPad 2 tablet in Japan after the disaster, but it did not say it was due to supply problems.The disaster has struck transport and power supplies in the country hard, resulting in factory closures and disrupted deliveries.Research provider IHS iSuppli warned of “significant” shortages for certain components and a knock on impact for companies worldwide.Analyst Dale Ford said: “While there are few reports of actual damage at electronic production facilities, impacts on the transportation and power infrastructure will result in disruptions of supply, resulting in short supply and rising prices.”
Italy’s regulated igaming market has kicked off the new decade with a record-breaking monthly total for January 2020, aided by strong growth across a number of key verticals Casino & games 12th February 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Italy iGaming Dashboard – February 2020 Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Italy’s regulated igaming market has kicked off the new decade with a record-breaking monthly total for January 2020, aided by strong growth across a number of key verticals.Total online revenue for the month came in at €194.3m, a 31.0% year-on-year increase, and an 0.7% advance on the previous monthly revenue record of €192.9m, set in December 2019.Sports betting was the best performing online vertical in January, accounting for €95.2m (49.0%) of the market total, up 64.1% from January 2019. Bet365 continues to lead the market, accounting for 15.8% of online betting revenue, with Playtech-owned Snai remaining ahead of SKS365’s PlanetWin365 in second place, on 12.9%.PlanetWin365 appears to have peaked in October 2019, when market share of 14.2% saw it just 0.6% percentage points behind Bet365. Since then, however, it has steadily declined, though January’s market share of 12.2% represented an 0.2% improvement from December 2019.The month also saw PokerStars break into the Top 10 remote sports betting operators for the first time, accounting for 2.1% of revenues flowing through dot.it platforms in the period.Retail betting’s contribution, meanwhile, also grew strongly, coming in at €116.7m – almost double the prior year’s €66.5m. However, a month-over-month decline in retail revenue saw sports betting’s total across all channels decline 2.0% sequentially, to €212.0m.Across both channels, Goldbet is Italy’s market leader, having generated 15.5% of revenue for the first month of 2020. Snai followed closely in second, on 15.1%, with GVC Holdings’ Eurobet coming in third on 13.3%.Turning to online casino, revenue was down sequentially at €81.8m, though this represented a 13.8% improvement on January 2019’s €71.9m. The Stars Group’s PokerStars led the market over the month with a 10.1% share, giving it a significant lead over second-placed Sisal, with 8.5%.While poker cash games (€7.6m) and tournaments (€5.7m) were both down year-over-year, a few months of sequential growth suggest each vertical is recovering following a difficult year. PokerStars by far leads the way in both markets, accounting for 43.8% of cash game revenue, and 58.1% of tournament revenue in January.

Located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, the Nook Residence sits in continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located openings and a large gap in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below as we approach the building.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardInside, the clear sequence of open living spaces on the ground floor successively unveils different views of Lake Memphremagog to the visitor. Separating public from private spaces, a relaxation and contemplation area comes in as a pause in the architecture discovery course. Acting as lounge suspended over the void, this interior balcony between two levels accentuates our appreciation of the site in all its splender.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardThe steep terrain quickly dictated the first project constraints. The house clings to the steep terrain and seems to be projecting toward the Lake. Like an origami, the two volumes are linked by a dynamic bending ribbon that merges the roofs together. The created projections act as solar shading and protect a huge terrace facing south.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardA white painted wood decay uniformly coats all sides and allows a more delicate integration of the building in its environment. Inside, the sobriety of the materials creates a canvas for a space that is both bright and warm. Polished concrete radiant floors, black ceramic tiles and walnut furniture punctuate the space with elegance. Cedar ceilings extend outside in continuity with the roof soffits outside, stretching sights to the Lake. Abundant windows erase the boundaries between inside and outside and a black staircase in the continuity with the upstairs railing leads to the bedrooms on lower level. Two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a dormitory with apparent board-formed concrete walls mainly compose the Ground level.Save this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardActing as a landmark through the lush summer, the house changes with the seasons and its whiteness blends into the winter landscape as a tribute to the great Quebec winters.via v2comSave this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardSave this picture!© Ulysse Lemerise BouchardProject gallerySee allShow lessFederico Babina’s ARCHIWRITER Illustrations Visualize the “Architecture of a Text”Architecture NewsThe Compact Wooden City: A Life-Cycle Analysis of How Timber Could Help Combat Clima…Articles Share CopyAbout this officeMU ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMansonvilleCanadaPublished on June 02, 2016Cite: “Nook Residence / MU Architecture” 02 Jun 2016.

Trinity produces major Irish fundraising study For national and international charities, public collections, corporate donations and standing order/direct debit were the most common source of fundraising income. Web based appeals, legacies and major gifts were relatively less important.Regional organisations had more dependence on flag days, church gate collections, draws and local sponsorship. Cost (both in terms of time and money), return on investment and public relations were the decisive factors for the majority of charities and balls and treks were losing their appeal as fundraising methods.The report can be downloaded from the Trinity department’s website. 19 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Ireland 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.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The most comprehensive study ever of fundraising organisations in Ireland has been published by the Centre for Nonprofit Management at Trinity College Dublin. ‘Exploring the Irish Fundraising Landscape: A Report on the practice and scale of charitable fundraising from the public in Ireland,’ was commissioned by Irish Charities Tax Research Limited who were in turn supported in the work by the government. The report was conducted using a quantitative survey which was responded to by 960 fundraising organisations and by focus groups. The 52-page report found that there was increasing competition in fundraising, increasing costs and expectations, and a higher level of accountability being demanded by donors.Despite higher levels of fundraising most organisations were found to have a big reliance on state funding. Of the organisations surveyed fundraising income represented on average 23% of total income and, while the average raised was ‚€201,000, only 10% raised more than that figure, indicating a large number raising much more modest sums.

It currently lists 67 properties on Rightmove.Read more about ASA.ASA rulling My Online Estate Agent advertising standards authority ASA January 20, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

A BIZARRE power struggle is taking place between the administrators of Harvestime (2005) and the administrators of New Rathbones.KPMG, backed by Harves-time (2005)’s creditors Whit-worth Holdings and Whitworth Brothers, is challenging Har-vestime (2005)’s administrators to take over the administration process of New Rathbones. Eleven creditors, who turned up to a Harvestime (2005) creditors’ meeting earlier this month, have already voted down a motion to replace Begbies Traynor. But KPMG is fighting on, backed by Whitworth. New Rathbones’ administrator KPMG oversaw the break-up of New Rathbones in April 2005 into the Harvestime (2005) and Rathbone Kear business. Whitworth Brothers provided the working capital when the Harvestime (2005) business was formed in May 2005. Begbies Traynor was subsequently called in to Harvestime (2005) on November 18, 2005.Meanwhile, suppliers and customers remain supportive, as Harvestime (2005)’s Walsall bakery enters its fourth month in administration. The bakery continues to supply customers, including independents and supermarket Tesco, with a range including Tesco Finest, organic, in-store bakery and ciabatta loaves. A “couple of interested parties” are understood to be talking to administrators about a possible purchase of the bakery, which employs over 200 people. The rent on the site is paid until the end of May.

Sonoma Harvest Music Festival has announced the artist lineup for their 2018 event, set to take place on Saturday, September 22nd, and Sunday, September 23rd at the B.R. Cohn Winery. The Saturday lineup will be led by The Avett Brothers, in addition to performances from Lake Street Dive, Shovels & Rope, The Suffers, and Royal Jelly Jive. The Sunday lineup features sets by The Head & The Heart, Rodrigo y Gabriela, ZZ Ward, Rayland Baxter, and Con Brio.As Dave Graham, a partner in BottleRock Presents, said in a statement about the festival, “We are very happy to announce the return of music to B.R. Cohn Winery with the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival. … This intimate festival has a storied history in Sonoma wine country. No other music festival allows attendees to enjoy this level of musical talent in such an intimate venue, paired with Sonoma’s laid-back hospitality, great wine, and food. We essentially created this music festival for people who don’t like larger sized music festivals.”According to the festival website, the intimate event will be capped at 3,000 tickets, ensuring a “close-up, premium experience” for all festival attendees. Dedicated to hospitality, the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival pairs great music with the best of what Sonoma Valley has to offer, including artisanal foods from the area’s many acclaimed chefs plus as well as B.R. Cohn’s selection of premium wines and Northern California craft beer.B.R. Cohn Winery is a 70-acre multifaceted estate nestled between the Mayacamas range and Sonoma Mountain in the heart of Sonoma Valley. With a winemaking history dating to the 1860s, the vineyard is planted primarily to cabernet sauvignon and benefits from a unique confluence of geological and climatic factors that keep its soils warm, its vines frost-free, and its grapes ripe and flavor-packed. These advantages explain why B.R. Cohn is among Sonoma Valley’s few producers of world-class, single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Olive Hill Estate is named after B.R. Cohn’s grove of over 450 Picholine Olive Trees dating back to the mid-1800’s.Passes for the upscale event go on sale this Wednesday, March 28th at 10 a.m. PT. You can grab your tickets here when they become available. For more information about the Sonoma Harvest Music Festival website.[H/T Jambase]
