Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has opted to halt investments in its proprietary game studio, GiG Games, owing to a “negligible” of return on investment so far. The studio’s 25 employees have received termination packages, with three retained to maintain the current portfolio of games until the end of the year.

In total it has produced four games, with Book of Souls, Fruit Slot and Popstar following Wild Reels.However, GiG noted that “revenues generated from the proprietary games division have been negligible.”“The decision to halt in-house content production is a strategic choice to facilitate full focus and resources on becoming the platform of choice for the iGaming industry,” Richard Brown, acting chief executive officer of GiG, said. “This forms part of recent strategic initiatives taken to reduce non-marketing related OPEX, together with our commitment to execution and bottom line earnings.“I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in building our own games for their contribution and dedication to the company.”GiG estimates that it will make savings of around €250,000 per month following the studio’s shut down.It noted that the intellectual property created through the development of the four GiG Games titles would give it the option to resurrect the subsidiary and resume developing proprietary titles. For the time being, however, it will only offer third party content via its platform.

Design is modern and simple, and materials are basic: painted plaster, grey oak and glass. Elevation reflects the inside- Same simplicity, same materials, and same quite. The lot is located at the dead-end street. Facade is very narrow, and at back of the lot a public park. Our initial decision was to put the building in the advance lines of the street, and to leave the back garden big as much as possible.

The front elevation is sealed, hiding the house from the street. Huge doors open to the volume, which bring the views to the pool, and leave in the center of the house- a double height central space that connecting all house activities and is the meeting point of the house. From the entrance- a wooden deck leading from the street, through the living room to the garden in the back of the field. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe intermediate space, double height- is the living room. It connects the two wings with overhead bridges and staircase. In its space was important for us to use huge glass walls- that allow natural views and lights to the home life. The kitchen is in the public part of the ground floor with dining area from which go to the yard with BBQ Outdoor unit. Near the dining room is a spacious family room- that allows mom to be in eye contact with the children while she is busy in the kitchen. Save this picture!© Amit GeronParents dreamed of an independent ground floor suite, sitting “on the water” with the separation from the rest of the house looks. Isolation was also a desire to give independence to children running around with their friends at the pool. The children’s bedrooms were located on the first floor. Young’s rooms are with a common family room and balcony from every room. Adult children’s rooms are designed like “mini suite” with a living unit and independent bathroom. All others family functions – a screening room, fitness facilities, a Billiard table, as well as an intimate studio- are in the basement.

We played with the entrance direction and stairways-to received preliminary sketches for the client. We are very unique in the design process- planning the house in 3D from the initial sketch. Customers are very happy that the “imaging programs” are translated in 3D dimension.

These simulations are documented in “A book of images”, that accompany the client and us throughout all phases of construction and decision making. Great joy when the customer comes in with it and investigating whether simulation matches reality.

This corner house is located at the meeting point of a pair of roads where it reveals an intriguing entrance façade. The flat roof extends the full length of the structure and folds into side walls to seamlessly enwrap the interior space. When looking at the house from the side, the walls confuse the eye, making it impossible to perceive where they begin and end and resulting in a unified and continuous façade. This structural uniformity is further enhanced by the uniform materiality of the roof and the solid walls, which are constructed of exposed concrete.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Amit GeronVast expanses of wood-clad and glass walls stretch between the concrete walls, separating the interior and the exterior, and allowing easy movement into and out of the house. It is a floor plan that facilitates a natural flow of air and light to all of the house’s interior spaces, private and public alike. In order to regulate the light, we created wooden louvre elements that screen and reflect sunbeams, at times creating dramatic shadows across the walls of the house.Save this picture!© Amit GeronOne reaches the main entrance via a bridge crossing an impressive sunken courtyard that brings light into the basement and offers a safe play area, while intensifying the sense of height of the front façade. The front door is concealed in a wall clad in wooden panels, which echo the wooden louvres located on other sides of the house. The distinction between interior and exterior spaces is further blurred by the wide overhang beyond the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding wall to extend the already generous open public space to the patio while creating shaded areas in which to escape the sun’s harsh rays. The rectangular shape of the houses is ideal for a single open plan public space with no fixed division. Such a floor plan allows for a family atmosphere where everything is open, and everyone can see everyone else.Save this picture!© Amit GeronSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Amit GeronRunning through the length of the rectangle, steel staircases are anchored between concrete walls. The open treads of the staircases bring an airiness to the upper floor, where a mesh railing borders the corridor to add a sense of openness as you approach the rooms leading off it. The qualities of the mesh are again used in the handrails leading down to the basement. In addition, the family and guest rooms located in the basement all face onto the sunken courtyard to the front of the house and get natural light throughout the daylight hours.Save this picture!© Amit GeronLocating the house to one side of the lot leaves a large garden that can be viewed from all rooms in the house. As the rooms are located next to one another, they all overlook the garden and swimming pool. This configuration provides every space in the house with exterior frontage. The view from the upper floor is through the wooden louvres – a feature that gives clear sightings of the pool and garden while retaining privacy in the rooms. The living areas, in particular, offer uninterrupted views across the garden and the swimming pool set in a natural green surround and reflected back into the house to give an even greater sense of space and oneness with nature.Save this picture!© Amit GeronProject gallerySee allShow lessPASAKA Cinema House / Audrius Ambrasas ArchitectsSelected ProjectsPH Scalabrini Ortiz House / Kohan Ratto ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Amit Geron+ 26Curated by María Francisca González Share Architects: Pitsou Kedem Architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/948285/ak-house-pitsou-kedem-architects Clipboard AK House / Pitsou Kedem ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAK House / Pitsou Kedem Architects 2020 Israel Year: AK House / Pitsou Kedem Architects “COPY” CopyAbout this officePitsou Kedem ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookIsraelPublished on September 25, 2020Cite: “AK House / Pitsou Kedem Architects” 25 Sep 2020.

According to CAF, among the new funds are several exclusively available to charities, and some that are available at lower cost than funds usually available to small and medium-sized charities.John Low, Chief Executive of CAF, said:“It is encouraging to see that, in the short time since the CAF Investment Account was launched, there has been demand from further fund managers to make their funds available to charities through the account. CAF has now put a significant share of our own investments into a CAF Investment Account. This will vastly reduce paperwork and make our investments processes much more efficient.”Information on the platform and how to open an account is available on the CAF website.

The court also asked the respondents of the petition, the state of Delhi, the Director General and the Superintendent, Tihar Jail to clarify whether any FIR and chargesheet have been filed with respect to the incident.Noting that the incident was very serious in nature, the court also asked the jail authorities for the relevant CCTV footage of the incident, and observed that in such cases the footage must be seized and confisacted immediately.The undertrial youngster, Dilsher Azad had been lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail since Sept 19, 2019, and was allegedly murdered by inmates. Azad’s father received information about his son’s sudden death in the prison on Nov 30, 2020.Azad’s father has also alleged that upon reaching the prison he was not informed the real reason for his son’s death despite repeated requests, and only got the relevant information once his advocate reached the prison.It has been said in the petition that Azad was found dead with knife injuries, specifically 9 wounds on his body.On a related note, Single Judge bench of Justice Prathiba Singh hearing the case also pointed out that the time limit for which CCTV footages are stored in Tihar needs to be increased from its current limit.She said, “I had visited the Tihar jail once, and they have a very small time limit for which they preserve the CCTV footage. Nowadays we have cloud servers, so the issue with storage space is not there anymore. We should increase the time for storage of CCTV footages.”Next Story
Activity and dormancy in relation to body water and cold tolerance in a winter-active springtail (Collembola)May 9, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zzqgqddue.
Ceratophysella sigillata (Collembola, Hypogastruridae) has a life cycle which may extend for >2 years in a temperate climate. It exists in two main morphs, a winter-active morph and a summer-dormant morph in central European forests. The winter-active morph often occurs in large aggregations, wandering on leaf litter and snow surfaces and climbing on tree trunks. The summer-dormant morph is found in the upper soil layers of the forest floor. The cryobiology of the two morphs, sampled from a population near Bern in Switzerland, was examined using Differential Scanning Calorimetry to elucidate the roles of body water and the cold tolerance of individual springtails. Mean (SD) live weights were 62 +/- 16 and 17 +/- 6 mug for winter and summer individuals, respectively. Winter-active springtails, which were two feeding instars older than summer-dormant individuals, were significantly heavier (by up to 4 times), but contained less water (48% of fresh weight [or 0.9 g g(-1) dry weight]) compared with summer-dormant animals (70% of fresh weight [or 2.5 g g(-1) dry weight]). Summer-dormant animals had a slightly greater supercooling capacity (mean (SD) -16 +/- 6degreesC) compared with winter-active individuals (-12 +/- 3degreesC), and they also contained significantly larger amounts of both total body water and osmotically inactive (unfrozen) water. In the summer morph, the unfrozen fraction was 26%, compared to 11% in the winter morph. The ratio of osmotically inactive to osmotically active (freezable) water was 1 : 1.7 (summer) and 1 : 3.3 (winter); thus unfrozen water constituted 59% of the total body water during summer compared with only 30% in winter. Small, but significant, levels of thermal hysteresis were detected in the winter-active morph (0.15degreesC) and in summer-dormant forms (0.05degreesC), which would not confer protection from freezing. However, the presence of antifreeze proteins may prevent ice crystal growth when feeding on algae with associated ice crystals during winter. It is hypothesised that in summer animals a small decrease in freezable water results in a large increase in haemolymph osmolality, thereby reducing the vapour pressure gradient between the springtail and the surrounding air. A similar decrease in freezable water in winter animals will not have such a large effect. The transfer of free water into the osmotically inactive state is a possible mechanism for increasing drought survival in the summer-dormant morph. The ecophysiological differences between the summer and winter forms of C. sigillata are discussed in relation to its population ecology and survival.
