first_img27th February 2020 | By Stephen Carter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter iGB columnist Nick Garner is in a reflective mood as he casts his mind back over the last year and picks the five things that, for him, stood out the most 3. Millennials and Gen Z don’t love gambling Another year has passed and we’re all one year older. And the conveyor belt of gamblers is slowly drying up. The young don’t like gambling. Atlantic City’s Stockton University released a survey which revealed that gambling is only 21st in a list of preferred leisure activities for millennials. If you’re over 35, gambling is number six on your list. Granted, that’s only one market research report but the takeaway is this: young people are into gaming, not gambling. Most young people don’t think loot boxes are gambling – to them loot boxes are just a form of ‘lucky dip’. But they are nothing of the sort. They are a $35bn/year market that has so far evaded too much regulatory scrutiny. Anecdotally I’ve seen industry leaders start to seriously think about the millennial ‘problem’. Why? Because grey markets are gradually being regulated. And now we have a tide of young people that don’t like slots. It’s potentially a serious issue.  What did I learn? Ignore the changing tastes of young people at your peril.4. Machine learning and AI: It’s creeping into many places A few years ago, machine learning promised to change everything – and now it’s finally beginning. The promise of machine learning? It can do what humans can’t. I was a judge at an igaming awards event last year and one of the categories before us was ‘igaming CRM’. What stood out for me was Optimove, the CRM business that uses machine learning to handle advanced segmentation for email campaigns. Its machine learning technology was consistently delivering a minimum 15% uplift in CRM attributed revenue.You may not think 15% is a big deal but in igaming, where you’re eking out 1-2% margins, 15% is huge.Elsewhere, ComeOn has launched a machine learning platform that identifies problem gamblers. Once the system recognises someone in distress it communicates in a personalised way to encourage responsible gambling.Not everything has worked, though. Chat bots have failed to get traction. But overall, the commercial pressure to increase profits by decreasing human input will see artificial intelligence and machine learning become pervasive in igaming. Those chat bots will return.What did I learn? The machine learning/AI tide is rising. 5. SEO: Machine learning is starting to rule On the theme of machine learning, last October saw Google launch the Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers update, or BERT for short. It’s an algorithm which follows on from Panda, Hummingbird and RankBrain. BERT uses machine learning to better understand the context of a search query and the meaning of individual words. By understanding the meaning of words, Google can pull up more appropriate and satisfying search results.For me, the new ranking game for 2019 was – and is – satisfying user search intent. Give users what they want and Google will want you to rank. I’ve seen this repeatedly in 2019. I’m seeing a tighter correlation than ever with sites that satisfy and their rankings.And what about links? They work only in specific circumstances. If your site is new or existing and satisfying, fresh link equity can give you a rankings bump. If your site isn’t satisfying, those links stop working.What did I learn? Obsess about user satisfaction. Then think about links.Nick Garner is founder of Rize Digital, the igaming SEO and marketing agency What I learned about igaming marketing in 2019 iGB columnist Nick Garner is in a reflective mood as he casts his mind back over the last year and picks the five things that, for him, stood out the mostTraditionally, the new year marks a time to look forward but as a new decade dawns, I thought I’d glance back at the five igaming marketing matters that piqued my interest the most over the past 12 months.1. US gold rush: Big money and huge expectations 2019 saw the US online gambling market finally become a real mainstream regulated ‘thing’. The giant US media company Fox Corporation entered into a joint venture with another behemoth, The Stars Group, to launch Fox Bet. And with some 200,000 unique visitors a month as of the beginning of January, they’ve got off to a good start. In late 2019, DraftKings and SBTech combined to take on the US market. The pair say there are “the only vertically-integrated pure-play sports betting and online gaming company” based in the US. With a potential market cap of $3.3bn and about 12 million unique visitors per month, this is a huge company. Why such intense interest in the US? Simple: it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get a long-term footing in a ridiculously large market. What did I learn? Opportunity knocks only once when doors open.2. Affiliate marketing: it’s a grind Once upon a time, an affiliate could be inventive with the truth, be clever with SEO and make money. But 2019 was the year affiliates had to obey the regulators and stay out of trouble.As we know, operators in the UK are responsible for the messaging their affiliates use. In turn, this means one strike and you’re out if you’re a non-compliant affiliate. If you’re a new affiliate getting into a regulated marketplace like the UK, it will be tough getting good deals in place.After all the excitement with Catena’s 2017/18 buying spree, 2019 was a gentle glide to the bottom as their share price dropped from a 2018 peak of SEK148 to SEK39 at the end of 2019. XLMedia’s share price reached £212 in 2018 but had dropped back to £44 by 31 December 2019.Since both of these organisations own thousands of affiliate sites, their share prices are a good indicator for the overall health of affiliate marketing. And it’s not looking great.Still, at least there are some grey markets to work in. What did I learn? If you want to be an affiliate, start with grey markets. If you’re already an affiliate, maybe tone down your expectations a bit.

first_img Enter Your Email Address Why I’d stop saving and start buying dividend stocks today to retire early I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images. The stock market crash may have lowered the appeal of dividend stocks for some investors. They may be concerned about a second downturn this year, or feel that having larger amounts of cash is beneficial in a challenging economic period.However, low interest rates mean that saving money could lead to disappointing returns in the long run. At the same time, high yields and the potential for dividend growth could lift stock prices higher. Over time, income shares could help to bring your retirement date a step closer.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Low interest rates on cash savingsDividend stocks currently offer a higher return than cash savings. This is partly due to low interest rates that have been around for a number of years. However, the prospect of rising interest rates now seems to be somewhat more distant than it was at the start of the year. A weak global economic outlook means policymakers may retain an accommodative monetary policy over the medium term. This could lead to continued low returns from cash savings.Saving money may even lead to a negative return once inflation is factored in. This could be very detrimental to your retirement prospects. It could even lead to a loss of spending power if inflation rises and interest rates remain low. This would make it more difficult for anyone with cash savings to retire early.Return prospects from dividend stocksWhile dividend stocks may have produced poor returns this year, their low valuations suggest they offer impressive long-term prospects. Weak investor sentiment and an uncertain economic environment mean that some income shares have a potent combination of a high yield and a low valuation. This could lead to impressive total returns that improve your long-term financial prospects.Although there are ongoing risks to the stock market’s near-term performance, its track record is exceptionally strong. It has always recovered from every previous downturn to post new record highs. As such, investing in a range of income shares today could provide you with the opportunity to obtain a worthwhile passive income now. As well as making capital gains on your investment over the coming years.Dividend growth opportunitiesWhile many dividend stocks may not increase their shareholder payouts this year, history suggests they’re likely to do so as the economy recovers. Following previous economic difficulties, such as the global financial crisis, dividend growth was relatively slow in some industries. However, as trading conditions pick up and economic growth strengthens, dividends have often followed suit.This outcome may seem unlikely right now, but rising dividends are set to feature in the subsequent period of economic recovery. This could further improve your return prospects and increase your chances of building a nest egg that brings retirement a step closer.

Photo: André Forget[Anglican Journal — Port Colborne, Ontario] On New Year’s Day, a family of refugees from Syria began the last leg of a journey that had lasted almost three years and brought them thousands of kilometres from home.As they walked toward the car belonging to Canon Robert Hurkmans, rector of St. James and St. Brendan, the Anglican church that had sponsored them, Bilal and Hiba* watched as their children, eight-year-old Jana and four-year-old Fares, gazed with delight at the fat snowflakes falling from the sky.A week later, seated in their freshly painted apartment, Bilal and Hiba served tea while Jana and Fares chased each other around the spacious living room overlooking their quiet residential street.Bilal and Hiba were warm and energetic in their welcome, and when one of them couldn’t find quite the right word to express themselves in English, they would laugh merrily at their own limitations. With the help of interpreter Sima Mahli, they spoke to the Anglican Journal about the long journey that brought them from Syria to this city on Lake Erie, in the Niagara region of southern Ontario.In 2013, the Syrian civil war had already been raging for two years, and Bilal and Hiba—Muslims from the city of Hama—were in constant fear for their lives.  Hama was controlled by Bashar al-Assad’s government troops, but was frequently under attack from rebel forces.Bilal had a job running a convenience store, but worried that “someone would come into their home and take them” or that an explosion would kill members of his family. They decided to flee to nearby Lebanon, and after taking a long, roundabout journey by car to avoid the chaotic and dangerous main highway, they arrived in the port city of Tripoli.But while Lebanon gave them shelter from the immediate dangers of the war, it meant starting a new life. Since the beginning of the conflict, over a million Syrians have taken refuge in the small Mediterranean country, which is still trying to recover from its own violent sectarian past, and jobs and shelter are scarce. Bilal was lucky enough to find work as a chef, but it meant pulling 13-hour days for pay that amounted to only about $400 a month.Bilal and Hiba often struggled to make ends meet, and paying rent meant they were not always able to afford food; medication for the children when they fell ill was usually beyond their means. Fortunately, they were not entirely alone. Bilal’s brother, Abdul-Raman, had also fled to Tripoli with his wife and five children, and it was through him that Bilal and his family would ultimately escape to safety in Canada.Donna Kalailieff, who has been co-ordinating the St. James and St. Brendan refugee sponsorship group since September, said they had originally planned on sponsoring only one family—that of Bilal’s brother. But after Abdul-Raman explained to Kalailieff over the phone that he would not feel right leaving Bilal and Hiba and their children behind, she spoke to Hurkmans about the possibility of sponsoring both families. His answer? “Absolutely.”A year ago, Kalailieff or anyone at St. James and St. Brendan could not have imagined that 2016 would begin with such a welcome.The idea to sponsor a refugee family arose in spring, after Hurkmans learned that the diocese had decided to celebrate its 140th anniversary by sponsoring 50 refugees. He had been preaching a series of sermons on the biblical responsibility for those who have wealth to also be “rich in good deeds,” and the message of sacrificial giving and the call to raise money for refugee sponsorship struck a chord in the congregation.Within four weeks, the congregation raised $8,000 more than its initial goal of $25,000, and donations were still coming in.Kalailieff, who retired last November after working as a nurse and project-manager for the ministry of health and long-term care, said members of the congregation have been eager to donate their talents as well as their money to help the newcomers. Two English as a Second Language teachers at St. James and St. Brendan have already stepped forward and offered to give private lessons, while a retired school teacher in the congregation has offered to help Hiba and Bilal find a school for Jana and Fares.Ted Kalailieff, Donna’s husband, who was involved in getting the apartment ready and furnished for the family’s arrival, said the wider community has also pitched in—two brand-new bunk beds were donated by the proprietor of a local laundromat, who came to Canada as a refugee from Uganda in the 1970s.When asked whether or not he has any concerns about the hospitable zeal burning out, Hurkmans said that while it is still “early days,” he isn’t that worried. “I think there’s a lot of excitement in the community.”The Rev. Bill Mous, Niagara’s director of justice, community and global ministries, agreed, noting that finding people to help the refugees once they are in the country usually isn’t a problem.“I’ve never seen a refugee sponsorship group be content with submitting the application and losing enthusiasm,” he said. “The transformation and the excitement begin when the family arrives, and that commitment is just redoubled if not expanded infinitely…the chapter that begins upon arrival in Canada is the chapter sponsors are most excited about.”Given the spotlight on refugees in autumn 2015, the diocese of Niagara’s decision to focus on refugees for its anniversary has proven fortuitous. Mous explained that while the diocese has generally done a few sponsorships every year, the push to bring in 50 refugees has been met with “a huge level of interest.” Over 25 applications have currently been submitted, and a further six are almost ready for submission. Mous said he expects the diocese will surpass its goal by “some significant amount.”Port Colborne has played an important role in this—after Bilal’s brother and his family arrive later this month, the community will be hosting 11 Syrians.While Bilal’s brother was supposed to have arrived first, he and his family were held up in Lebanon by the birth of a child. After being cautioned against traveling before the infant reaches two months, they decided that Bilal and Hiba should lead the way.Fortunately, Hurkmans said, they were able to rent two apartments in adjacent buildings, so they will be reunited as neighbours in their new country.In the meantime, Bilal and Hiba are busy settling into their new life in Canada. They have already been introduced to the local community health care centre, and are looking into enrolling Jana and Fares at a nearby elementary school. While Bilal hopes to eventually return to the kind of work he did in Hama, learning English will be the next priority. And after so many years of exhausting work and emotional uncertainty, he is first taking a much-needed break to recuperate.Speaking through the interpreter, Bilal and Hiba said their dreams for their new life in Canada are simple.“I want my children to have bright futures, and I feel that they have that opportunity now,” said Hiba. “Just to be healthy, just to be happy and safe and not to be afraid.”* The last names of the families of Bilal and Hiba, and Abdul-Raman, have requested that their last names be withheld to protect family in Syria.

In 2002 we bought a dilapidated weatherboard cottage on a corner block in an old industrial area of Botany. Since then we have gradually restored the cottage and opened it to the north and the garden by replacing the exterior wall with a sliding glass and timber door and adding a deck and outdoor bathroom.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineDoorspanoramah!®ah! PivotEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreIn 2008 we completed a separate building on the northern boundary of the site that now accommodates our architectural practice. It is a brick and steel building reflecting the vernacular of the surrounding industrial buildings. We sculpted the volume in a pragmatic way, using sun shading modeling and close study of the relative scales of the (small) house and the (massive) industrial buildings around it. Save this picture!The project was completed on a very tight budget (approximately $1,800 per sqm). The construction methodology was borrowed from the surrounding industrial sheds which are beautiful in a pragmatic and formal sense. We used steel portal frames on a concrete slab, clad in brick, lined with C/D grade, plantation grown construction ply. The windows are made from 50mm steel equal angles, the lighting is T5 fluorescent battens placed along the steel structure. The building is well oriented to the north and heavily insulated. The open mezzanine allows a stack effect to naturally ventilate both levels through operable roof vents. The studio remains cool during the summer months and a single gas bayonet provides ample heating during the winter months. Rain water tanks are plumbed into the bathroom and a solar voltaic array on the roof of the house provides a majority of the electricity needed during daylight hours. Save this picture!We made a decision when we bought the house that a majority of what we planted in the garden would be edible. This has continued around the Studio, we have planted orange and olive trees along the street elevations with oregano, thyme and rosemary for low ground cover. Save this picture!Many interesting issues arose from the development of this project with reference to new concepts of mixed use sites. Botany Bay City Council (and many other councils around Australia) see the importance of developing old industrial areas in a way that can accommodate residential, light industrial and commercial functions. If people can live near their work, work near their shops and walk safely between them, the suburb has a constant life to it that benefits all. It is through projects like ours that these intentions can be tested and developed and we are pleased to have been able to work closely with the council planners to achieve this very successful outcome.Save this picture!Both the house and the studio face into the garden which is shared by architects, children, a dog and a productive vegetable garden. Work and life boundaries are blurred by the architecture. Commuting time is nil and family life is holistically included in our architectural practice.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessModern Colosseum / Cepezed ArchitectsArticlesGreen Roofs for Melbourne / 1:1 architectsArticles Share Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/26207/botany-studio-house-workshop1 Clipboard CopyAbout this officeWorkshop1OfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOfficesOfficesHousesBotanyAustraliaPublished on June 30, 2009Cite: “Botany Studio + House / Workshop1” 30 Jun 2009.

The brief for the Jacaranda house was to turn an original 1920’s Ashgrovian house into a family haven, with the flexibility to accommodate the changing needs over the next 20 years. All core family living spaces needed to be on a single level, on a modest, intimate scale, while a separate zone was required for my architectural studio.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherRemaining authentic to the core of the building, and the inherent elegance of the Queenslander, was critical. This meant picking up on the traditional Queenslander language of expressing the construction method, and featuring beautiful timber work.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherIn responding to the brief, the first challenge and opportunity was to play with the vertical space available on the sloping block. By carving into the hill beneath the house, two planes of living were created. Below – an architectural studio and workshop, tranquil and constantly cooled by the thermal mass of rock and earth encasing it.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherAbove – a breezy Queenslander, open to all cross-breezes and encompassing all of the spaces required for daily family living. Both planes spill onto lush green lawns and gardens, with a series of green terraces, extruded from the studio level, stitching the planes together. Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!1st floor planOn the upper level, the key addition to the original house was the family kitchen, which plays on – and in fact replaces – the Queenslander idea of a generous deck. From entering the house, it is the last room on this level to be revealed – something of a finale and a clear contemporary addition. Large timber sliding doors retract almost fully on two sides to form an external kitchen garden pavilion.  Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherTransitions between new, old, indoor and outdoor are seamlessly woven together through both materiality (brick, timber and concrete) and a consistent language of horizontal planes, that continues the play on vertical space and enables the addition to sit lightly in its sloping, hillside context.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherLarge eves are an essential feature of any Queenslander, but often reduce sightlines and natural light in central living spaces. In the Jacaranda House kitchen, the traditional downward sloping eve is replaced with a filigree, upward-sloping, battoned eve. In partnership with the giant Jacaranda that encases the garden, the eve achieves a beautiful filter of sunlight into the kitchen, creating a gentle, ever-changing pattern of light and shade in this ‘garden kitchen’.Save this picture!Section 01Save this picture!Section 02To balance with the openness of the garden/Jacaranda outlook at the east end of the kitchen, the master bedroom has been pushed slightly out from the original floor plan, creating an intimate courtyard at the south end of the kitchen. The court yard is activated by a gestural external fireplace, that brings foreground drama to the kitchen outlook, while creating an external wall to complete the ‘garden room’.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherThe cumulative result is an understated re-interpretation of the traditional Queenslander, that extracts its unique strengths and distinctiveness from its challenging site context.Save this picture!© Photo credits: ChristopherProject gallerySee allShow lessYULIN Artistic Center / CHALLENGE DESIGNSelected ProjectsBuilding 83 Interior Architecture / Bora ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Projectscenter_img 2017 Scott Petherick Photographs:  Photo credits: Christopher Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSP StudioOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationPaddingtonAustraliaPublished on May 13, 2019Cite: “Jacaranda House / SP Studio” 13 May 2019.

The house can be interpreted as an item incorporated into the landscape. It is dug into the ground, setting the bedroom in the deepest zone, isolated from the outside, while the half-buried and the kitchen have views of Sierra Nevada. Two pavilions on different levels, interconnected by an underground passage, make the day zones independent from the more private rooms. The degree of freedom of the interior circulations is reminiscent of the movements in nests built by termites and other insects that live underground. The house is inspired by these strange, apparently random, aimless movements, and the traveling times involved. So we can use the chosen itinerary to shorten or stretch the time of the physical action of moving. We can use different times to link the same rooms, in other words, accelerate or slow down the time it takes for us to move to the same place by choosing different paths.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Patio planSave this picture!© Fernando AldaOutside, the entrance to the house is from the roof, an earthen garden/lookout situated above the living room, which allows domestic and work activities to be taken outdoors in suitable weather conditions. Above the bedrooms, a water tank containing a six meter long patio is a source of luminosity for the interior while at the same time prolonging the reflected view of Sierra Nevada into the house. The patio in the water provides lightening and ventilation to the rooms beneath the tank and also acts as a thermal regulator for each season. In summer, the water spills over the walls to provide cool relief from the intense heat, while in winter, it is a natural isolator. The moist concrete walls in the patio will have a crystalline appearance, and their color and texture will gradually change over time as moss and lichen start to grow on them.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Fernando AldaIt was decided to dispense with any sort of interior rendering. The concrete structure is left bare, only clad with white plasterboard and the light entrance points to highlight certain positions, providing an artistic treatment to the way the rooms are lit. The large picture window and the roof garden are the only spaces open to the exterior where the inhabitants can adapt their lives to the seasons, come rain, snow, wind or sun. This is a proposal for life that makes reference to a quiet occupation in a natural environment.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessAi Tower / HW StudioSelected ProjectsChapel of San Agustín de Punta de Choros / Domenico Albasini Santander – MJA Arquite…Selected Projects Share Lead Architect: Juan Domingo Santos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952002/house-in-ladera-estudio-juan-domingo-santos Clipboard ArchDaily “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952002/house-in-ladera-estudio-juan-domingo-santos Clipboard Architects: Estudio Juan Domingo Santos Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Pladur, Alberto Rodríguez Puertas Metálicas, Cauchil SL, Cristalería Herrera e Hijos SL, La Alpujarreña, Metalistería Ballesteros, Mármoles Nevado, Serafim Pereira Simoes “COPY” Photographs Photographs:  Fernando Alda, Amparo Garrido, Valentín García Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  396 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Spain Projects House in Ladera / Estudio Juan Domingo Santos Save this picture!© Fernando Alda+ 24Curated by Clara Ott Share CopyAbout this officeEstudio Juan Domingo SantosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookSpainPublished on November 26, 2020Cite: “House in Ladera / Estudio Juan Domingo Santos” [Casa en Ladera / Estudio Juan Domingo Santos] 26 Nov 2020.
