The Crown Perth casino revenue fell 24.9% to $607.5m, while Crown Aspinalls in London contributed $42.7m, down 24.1%. Revenue from sports betting and online operations increased by 4.3%, however, to $134.7m.Crown made $200,000 in other operating revenue, and after paying out $165.0m in commissions (down 36.8%) total revenue from customers amounted to $2.20bn.The operator made a further $26.2m in tenancy revenue, for $2.23bn in operating revenue. The business the reported an additional $10.2m in interest and $100,000 in the disposal of assets for overall revenue of $2.24bn.Crown chief executive and managing director Ken Barton said novel coronavirus (Covid-19) had a serious impact on the business, as early as January 2020.“2020 has been an extremely challenging year. From late January 2020, Crown began to experience softer trading conditions as a result of travel restrictions and general community uncertainty in response to COVID19, particularly impacting visitation to Crown Melbourne,” Barton exlplained. “In March 2020, Crown was directed to close its gaming activities and a significant part of its non-gaming operations at Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth for an extended period, with our financial results reflecting the impact of these closures.“These closures have also had a substantial impact on our people, with approximately 95% of our employees stood down following closure. I would like to thank our employees for their continued patience and support during this challenging time.”Crown Resorts’ expenses, meanwhile, totalled $2.07bn, down 11.8%.The vast majority of these costs, at $1.80bn (down 15.2%), were due to operating expenses. Cost of sales came to $124.1m, down 21.3%, while pre-opening costs came to $3.5m, impairment expenses came to $74.5m and other costs totalled $71.0m.After accounting for $300,000 in profit from associates, this resulted in a profit of $163.4m before tax and financial costs, down 73.5%. Crown paid $10.2m in financial costs for a pre-tax profit of $153.2m, down 73.6%.After paying $71.3m in income tax, the operator’s net profit came to $81.9m, down 79.7% year-on-year. Of this total, $79.5m (down 80.2%) was attributable to Crown’s owners.Although Crown Perth has since reopened, Crown Melbourne remains closed due to restrictions in the state of Victoria.“Crown Perth re-commenced operations before year end,” Barton said. “We are pleased to have been able to welcome back both customers and employees, which is a great step forward for us all and a great boost to the Western Australian economy. Initial trading has been encouraging, albeit under restricted operating conditions and for a relatively short period of time.“Unfortunately, Victoria remains in Stage 4 restrictions and, as a result, Crown Melbourne remains closed. Our main focus continues to be on the health and wellbeing of ouremployees and guests, as well as the community more broadly. We will continue to work with the Government and health authorities on how we can safely re-open when it is appropriate to do so.Barton added the business has been taking steps to ensure it has the liquidity to manage the ongoing closure of its flagship property.“Given this backdrop, Crown has been focussed on liquidity management to ensure it is well placed to withstand this extended period of closure,” Barton said. “I would once again like to acknowledge the support we have received from our relationship lenders, with new bilateral facilities implemented during the year and the execution of the Crown Sydney financing facility following year end.In June, the New South Wales Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority announced that it had resumed its inquiry into Crown Resorts, despite Melco Resorts selling its stake in the operator in April.The inquiry was initially launched after Asian gaming giant Melco agreed to purchase a 19.99% stake for $1.76bn, which prompted allegations in the Australian press related to Melco’s background, ownership and activities in Asia.This ultimately led to Melco pulling out of the deal, selling its holding to private equity giant Blackstone Group.last_img read more

In Vietnam nowadays, the orientation of fast expanding the capital city leads to too many construction investments in newly formed urban areas but constructors have poor skills of construction qualification and techniques. Citizens, who moved to those new urban areas, have to face the unsettled issues of overall planning and natural landscape. The restrictions of construction area and planning solutions also lead to housing construction having natural light and ventilation from only one direction.The project area is 50,4m2, it’s located on a new road which is nearly formed with a facade of 4,2m and depth of 12m.The owner is a female doctor who wants a fully functional and sustainable house with cozy living space, harmony light and natural ventilation. Her son has need of making his own family in the future. Her daughter is studying at art university, who has an interest in creative, artistic and Vietnamese traditional spaces; she also wants to own an area which can be her gallery in the creative process and for the applied art.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucIn the process of researching the site, the current state of natural light and ventilation is from only one direction, we studied the lifestyles and the personalities of each family member. In addition, we discussed with the contractor on solutions in order to not only control the minimum investment cost but also ensure the quality of construction.The house is designed in minimalist style. We made the most of the area to fully provide a basic living space. We created blank floor in the middle and the back of the house, so it’s ensured that natural ventilation and light can be present in every space of the house. Simultaneously, it made a connection to communicate between family members in many levels of the longitudinal space development because the construction area is quite limited. But turns out it brings family members some joyful experiments of different spaces and architectural details through the process of movement in the house.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucThe main structure of the house is general construction for cost saving, facade glass wall on the façade and glass window system, wooden partition leads the light into the room but still keeps the privacy for the owners.Besides, this solution also helps to increase the durability of the construction’s outdoor side in every local weather condition.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucVietnamese traditional lacquer art on steel stair partition of the second floor is the highlight of living space. The architectural details is considered carefully before they’re placed on important positions so the process of movement through spaces in the house would bring the best visual perceptions of family members.Save this picture!© Le Anh DucWe did not limit this work in a basic civil construction as usual but we built a civilized behavior between the owner and the house; the house and the nature.

We’re certainly proud to have won the signature item again this year and encourage people who attend the fair to get and enjoy that while they’re at the fair.”Governor Mike Pence paid tribute to the state’s ag sector, and in particular the pork industry, ranked 5th in the country for production. Slaton returned the favor.“We’re fortunate in Indiana to not only have great pork producers but we also have some great packing plants and facilities to get our pigs to market,” he told HAT. “The infrastructure that we have and the grain that we have make for a great area for pig production and certainly our governor and Lt. governor are very active in promoting our product not only here in Indiana and across the country, but across the world as well. They were just in China for a recent trade mission visit earlier this summer, so we appreciate all they do for the pork producers here in the state of Indiana.” Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Fifth annual Drew Medford Memorial Tournament honors former Paschal pitcher, awards 20 scholarships

first_imgFacebook Twitter Lucy Puente What we’re reading: Prince Philip dies at 99, President Biden unveils spending proposal Linkedin Facebook Linkedin ReddIt printTwenty scholarships were awarded to local high school baseball players last week at an annual tournament in honor of a former Paschal High School pitcher.The fifth annual Drew Medford Memorial Baseball Tournament featured 20 local high schools, who played over 49 games in three days. The tournament is capped off with a scholarship ceremony. Coaches pick one varsity senior player per team who they believe is the most deserving of the scholarship based on sportsmanship, leadership and heart for the game of baseball – all characteristics that were modeled by Drew MedfordArlington Heights Baseball Field entrance (Lucy Puente/TCU360)Medford was a varsity pitcher for the Paschal High School Panthers baseball team, who earned district MVP honors and was committed to play for TCU before he died in a car accident in 2016, the summer after his high school graduation. The tournament was brought to life by friends, family and the Fort Worth community who formed the board of the Drew Medford Memorial Tournament (DMMT). They are responsible for organizing the tournament, finding sponsors, making t-shirts and placing yard signs advertising the event around Fort Worth.Stacey Henley is one of the parents who helped create the tournament. Her son, Blair Henley, a former University of Texas pitcher now with the Houston Astros, knew Medford personally.The two played on the same baseball team throughout their teen years with the Fort Worth Cats organization and then against each other at rival high schools, Paschal and Arlington Heights.Henley said that the DMMT was created from the annual rivalry between the Paschal and Arlington Heights baseball teams. The invitational tournament started with only six teams and now has grown to 20, with each team selected based on the ability of their baseball programs. Paschal and Arlington Heights Baseball programs (Lucy Puente/TCU360)This year’s tournament took place over three days at five participating high school fields: Paschal, Arlington Heights, Trinity Valley, Mansfield Summit and Mansfield Legacy. The final game of the tournament features Medford’s alma mater Paschal against Arlington Heights.Paschal and Heights would normally not get to play one another. “Normally the 5A and 6A schools would not play against each other because of their sizes, but this tournament allows the historic Heights and Paschal rivalry to continue on while honoring the memory of Drew,” said Drew Harris, the publicity manager of the DMMT and a former communications associate at TCU.The scholarship ceremony is before the final game and presents all the recipients with their awards on the field.The scholarships are funded by the sponsors of the tournament consisting of local Fort Worth businesses, organizations and families. Some sponsors directly relate to Medford, like University Little League, the Fort Worth Cats organization and the Fort Worth Aces organization. “What makes this tournament different from other baseball tournaments is that it’s not put on by a big corporation, it’s put on by families, students and coaches,” Harris said. The banner of all the sponsors hanging on the fence of batting cages (Lucy Puente/TCU360)Aaron Biediger, a senior at Arlington Heights, received the scholarship and said that it was the most memorable event of the tournament.“Hearing everyone cheer for me when they announced my name including my teammates and family was unforgettable,” Biediger said. “They were so loud the announcer had to pause to let them calm down.” Biediger, who is continuing his baseball career at Richland College, said he was honored to find out he was the recipient and was grateful to his coaches, family and teammates. The recipient for Lake Ridge High School, JD Moreno, echoed Biediger. “This scholarship means a lot to me,” he said. “It made me feel grateful knowing my coaches chose me and see me as the player that Drew used to be.” Moreno is committed to play at New Mexico Junior College and hopes to save his scholarship to help with future payments for when he transfers to a four-year university. Both recipients plan to come back and attend the Drew Medford Memorial Tournament after they graduate from high school.

During this violent clash, several people from the said procession as well as Delhi Police personals were injured,” the plea added.Jindal also objected to hoisting of religious flag at the Red Fort in the following words:”Hoisting a religious flag, other than our national flag is also against the integrity and unity as laid by the constitution of India. Such activities hurt the secular spirit of the citizens of our country and also account to disgrace of our national flag and constitution of India.”He submitted that the above acts raise a big question upon the kind of rally that was carried out and also sets a wrong example as the rules and guidelines set by the Delhi Police were openly flaunted.Jindal has therefore urged the Supreme Court to constitute an independent commission for enquiry of the above mentioned incident and a prompt action against all the culprits.Next Storylast_img read more

A Holy day.We woke up, got dressed and went to Sunday school and church. Between the getting up and getting dressed, a whipping was required to get me in my Sunday dress.
