US enviro review of drilling

first_imgTuesday 8 February 2011 8:50 pm Tags: NULL The US Interior Department said yesterday it will conduct a review on the environmental impact of leasing certain oil and natural gas tracts in the Gulf of Mexico as part of its next five-year drilling plan. The environmental impact statement will cover all proposed lease sales that would be held off the coasts of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama during the 2012-2017 period.The Obama administration previously pulled tracts in Florida waters and off the Atlantic Coast for future drilling because of safety concerns raised after last year’s BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Share KCS-content Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut whatsapp US enviro review of drilling last_img read more

How can betting operators help mitigate cheating in esports betting?

first_imgBetting markets and data The first is to be a lot more careful about what markets they put up because one of the big problems is the prevalence of markets, both in number and value. There’s tremendous temptation these days for players at the bottom end of Tier 2 and Tier 3 to look at a betting situation and discern very, very easily that they can earn more money betting against themselves, manipulating the market, than they can by winning the competition. At the moment, with the best will in the world, the Esports Integrity Commission is the only show in town when it comes to betting integrity. There is nowhere else to go unless, as a betting operator, when you detect something, you go directly to the tournament organiser. In my experience, betting operators don’t tend to do that. We have a central function around a suspicious and unusual bet alert network which currently has about 23 or 24 betting operators globally. It also has betting regulators, like the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, the Maltese Gaming Authority, the Nevada Gaming Control Board, New Jersey DGE, Isle of Man and Australian regulators. And we work with many of the data companies that provide official and unofficial data to the betting operators as well as the monitoring services like the International Betting Integrity Association and Global Lottery Monitoring Service. In other words, we take as best we can all the interested parties and create a network for exchange of suspicious and unusual betting information so people can protect their own company position, and then we can protect the esports industry and tournament operators by doing something about it at the other end with our tournament organiser members. That way, at least we’re all working together for the same purpose. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter By Kenneth Williams I would ask the industry to be a lot more careful about what markets they put out. I know I’m speaking into a strong wind here because operators need to put markets up to retain their clients, and the more they put up, the more lines they get and retain. I know I’m being unrealistic in asking for that, but I don’t think it’s unrealistic to make attempts at betting operator levels of data to do official data deals. At least make sure you’re getting reliable data and that those markets are properly monitored for unusual and suspicious betting and that is then reported to us or, at the very least, to the tournament organiser.  Betting operators can help mitigate cheating in sports competitions, in particular match-fixing, in a few principal ways. 29th April 2021 | By contenteditor Tags: betting Esports ESIC Take that, alongside the fact that many of these low-level competitions are very poorly organised and the data being derived from them is not particularly reliable on many occasions, and you can see there is an issue. So the betting operators need to take responsibility for the fact that, at that level, they are, to some extent, facilitating or at least asking for betting fraud, especially if they’re not using official data. They should avoid using unofficial sources of data such as a data scrape or a Twitch feed for something like that. The Esports Integrity Commission is the most prominent fair-play organisation in esports. We caught up with its integrity commissioner, Ian Smith, who has overseen several cheating scandals in esports, including the 2020 coach bug and screen-sniping fiasco, both in Counter-Strike.center_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Esports How can betting operators help mitigate cheating in esports betting? It’s definitely a truism that betting operators have a direct interest in competitive integrity. They just come at it from a different direction. From their point of view, it’s the betting operator’s money that is getting stolen by the betting fraudsters, the guys who are match-fixing or facilitating the match-fixing. So they have a direct commercial interest in esports having competitive integrity. Those are the two things they can do. First, be a lot more careful about what they put up on the boards in terms of markets, make sure to use reliable data and not inadvertently put temptation in the player and team’s way. Second, join with us in terms of the suspicious betting alert network and participate actively in that, both to protect their own business and also to protect the esports industry itself. Communication and engagement with ESIC ESIC’s Ian Smith explains how cheating affects betting markets and what operators can do to protect themselves from fraudulent play. Topics: Esports esports betting Then the esports industry, the tournament operators and publishers, obviously have a direct interest in competitive integrity because, without it, the product is tainted, and they will haemorrhage fans. If people don’t believe what they’re watching is real, a genuine competition between two players or two teams trying to win, then what are they watching? They’re watching something made-up, like Pro Wrestling or something like that where it’s just a show, its just entertainment. They have a lot of choices as consumers, and if they abandon your platform, your game, your match, what happens is your sponsors leave, your broadcasters leave, your prize money drops, you can hold fewer competitions with lower prize money and the whole scene dies. It’s the players who suffer most in that situation. We all have an interest in competitive integrity; we just come at it from different directions. I’ve always taken the view, right from the beginning, that we have to work in close cooperation with betting operators. Email Addresslast_img read more

Stackyard House / Mole Architects

Stackyard is a new-build two-storey rural house neighbouring a Grade II listed farmhouse on the edge of the village of Palgrave in Suffolk. Designed as a new home for a retiring couple it is a modern house with an exposed timber structure, maximum natural light, sustainable features. The house takes its name from the agricultural enclosure typical to the area, which is used to store sheafs of corn. Located on the edge of the farmland the house opens up views to the north west and creates a space from which to enjoy the surrounding landscape. Save this picture!© David ButlerRecommended ProductsCeramicsApariciPorcelain Tiles – TangoCeramicsApavisaTiles – JewelsCeramicsTerrealTerracotta Baguettes in Vork CenterCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiThe house sits within the ground, with an in-situ concrete base, timber frame and silvered timber cladding. It’s form takes inspiration from classical rectories that typically stand at the edge of villages, with a square plan and strong roofline. Split levels negotiate the sloping site and the design departs from its classical predecessors in its use of an asymmetrical composition of windows, solar screens, and doorways, giving the elevations a less formal appearance. Save this picture!© David ButlerInside a generous entrance hall opens into a double height atrium leading into living quarters with high ceilings and deep timber beams demonstrating the primary timber frame structure. Responding to the client’s brief for a space to observe nature, the upper bedroom sits half a floor higher than the parapet, with a projecting roof sheltering the room from summer sun, creating a cap to the building while reinforcing its position as both retreat and hide. Save this picture!Basament & First Floor PlanThe property showcases hi-tech low energy design solutions in a contemporary vernacular scheme, allowing the owners to embrace a more environmentally sustainable lifestyle in a house which harmonises with its rural setting. Stackyard is designed to Passivhaus standards, incorporating high levels of insulation and an airtight envelope. Its compact form reduces energy loss and its orientation makes use of solar gain. Window sizes have been restricted with openings predominantly towards the south. Solar collectors on the roof provide hot water, and solar photovoltaic roofing is located on the garage roof, and rainwater collected for garden use.Save this picture!© David ButlerProject gallerySee allShow lessStavanger Concert Hall / Ratio Arkitekter ASSelected ProjectsShigeru Ban Named Pritzker Laureate for 2014Architecture News Share “COPY” JP Chick & Partners Ltd & Just Swiss Area:  243 m² Area:  243 m² Photographs CopyHouses•Palgrave, United Kingdom Timber Frame:Just SwissCity:PalgraveCountry:United KingdomMore SpecsLess Specscenter_img Contractor: ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/489323/stackyard-house-mole Clipboard Houses Quantity Surveyor: Structural Engineers: Architects: Mole Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/489323/stackyard-house-mole Clipboard Willow Builders Ltd CopyAbout this officeMole ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPalgraveHousesUnited KingdomPublished on March 25, 2014Cite: “Stackyard House / Mole Architects” 25 Mar 2014.
