Rank has agreed to pay £115.3m to purchase Stride’s entire fully diluted share capital. Rank Group has taken a step closer to completing its acquisition of online casino and bingo operator Stride Gaming after a court sanctioned the agreement.In May, Rank, the operator of the Mecca Bingo and Grosvenor Casino, made an offer of £115.3m (€129.5m/$141.7m) to purchase Stride’s entire fully diluted share capital.Stride shareholders overwhelmingly voted to back the deal in July, while the GB Gambling Commission last month also gave the green light to the acquisition.Rank also required court approval in order to proceed with the deal, and with the court having sanctioned the agreement, it is expected that Stride shares will stop trading on AIM by 6pm today (October 3).Dealings in Stride shares will be suspended at 7.30am on October 4, while Stride has also made an application to AIM for the cancellation of the admission to trading of Stride Shares on AIM, effecting from 7am on October 7.Upon originally tabling the offer, Rank said the merger would create a business with genuine scale and capability in the digital market, with pro forma digital net gaming revenues of approximately £185m.Rank also said the acquisition would help to improve its performance and reduce costs through migration to Stride’s proprietary technology platform and in-house ecosystem.In addition, Rank said that the merger would create significant value from strong synergies and offer greater financial flexibility to the combined business, while bolstering its management team with the addition of senior Stride staff.In August, Rank reported a 22% year-on-year decline in operating profit in its annual figures, despite digital growth driving an improved performance in the six months to June 30, 2019.Operating profit fell to £39.0m from £50.1m, while like-for-like revenue fell from £731.3m to £729.5m, although statutory turnover edged up from £691.0m to £695.1m.

O A S I architects is an architecture practice founded in 2009 and constantly devoted to answer the daily life needs for individuals and communities. The name does not designate a signature or it does not presume an attitude. OASI is a method. Projects are developed through a careful perception towards the context where each project is based, not only geographical (place) but also in regard of the complexity of its conditions (client, budget, timing). Each work responds to specific needs emerging from this double sided context, never giving away, even if with very light interventions, to subtle artistic twists.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliResearch and observation play a fundamental role in the process of ideas, which is particularly focused on absorbing the experiences and the atmosphere of the cities and the surrounding landscape. Oasi stands on these values to define places, environments, conditions and moments capable of offering the best features in their existing context. Each project therefore potentially becomes an oasis.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliFGN HOUSEA plot of land, a small orchard. Fertile.A suburban context, without specificities. Anonymous.Two young parents and their children. Ambitious.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliBefore the intervention, the garden looked like an empty ground, fenced by a prefabricated concrete slab fence on the perimeter sides and adjacent to other units. The new project’s shape, therefore, tries to fit into the delimitations of the context, enhancing the garden in which it is inserted.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Laura CavelliThe existing greenery becomes an integral part of the project, functioning as the background of the new construction.The volumes of the new building have been conceptually divided into three modules that, «sliding» on the north-south axis generate inner open spaces and outer paved spaces. The three staggered volumes are connected by a covering that «embraces» the entire building and generates covered sidewalks and verandas.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliOn the north side, at the entrance from the private road, a «void» was foreseen in the roof. It generates an inner garden (the patio) that brings light and air to the central volume. The house is presented mainly as a single-storey villa with a portion on the first floor of about 40 square meters to be used as a non-habitable attic. The north-west façade of the volume of the first floor is deliberately inclined to the west to ensure proper exposure and allow the users to enjoy the sunset standing out on that side of the house.Save this picture!© Laura CavelliProject gallerySee allShow lessForget the Critics: Traditional Architecture Can Still Make a Contemporary PlaceArticlesMorpholio Trace and Shapr3D Create “Drag’n’Fly” to Streamline Sketching and ModelingArchitecture News Share 2018 Photographs:  Laura Cavelli Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Laura Cavelli+ 30Curated by María Francisca González Share Architects: O A S I Architects Area Area of this architecture project Italy Year:  CopyHouses•Fagnano Olona, Italycenter_img “COPY” FGN House / O A S I Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/902583/fgn-house-o-a-s-i-architects Clipboard Photographs Houses Projects Area:  150 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeO A S I ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFagnano OlonaItalyPublished on September 26, 2018Cite: “FGN House / O A S I Architects” 26 Sep 2018.

His death marked the first time in the history of the Pasadena Police Department that a sworn officer was killed in the line of duty.The public is invited to attend the dedication ceremony which is a joint effort between the Pasadena Police Department and Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) whose office passed a Resolution (ACR 170) authorizing the memorial sign. A section of the I-210 Freeway between Rosemead Blvd. and Allen Avenue will be called the Richard Morris Memorial Highway. Assemblymember Holden along with Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez, Pasadena City officials, Caltrans and members of the Morris family will be on hand at the ceremony.

His warrior spirit lives on in our contemporary Pasadena Police Officers who continue to serve with honor, integrity and courage,” said Police Chief Sanchez.“This memorial was long-overdue,” Assemblymember Holden explained. “I was proud to lead the effort in the Legislature to add Agent Morris’ name to the list of those who died in service to the community.”* Agent Morris Memorial Sign Dedication* Friday, March 13 at 9:00 AM* Pasadena Police Department, 207 N. Garfield AvenueNo state funds are used for the memorial signs.

While investment from these firms and the jobs they provide are of course very welcome, Limerick needs to be given the means to create and grow its own iconic brands and companies.”According to Mr Gaffney, there are similar examples of locally owned and run State supported banks working very successfully in Germany. The Green Party has met with Department of Finance officials to examine the proposal for feasibility in Ireland.“The concept of a bank being established with a specific function is not new to the Irish market. As far back as the 1920’s the State created the ACC Bank for the purpose of supporting the agricultural sector and in the 1930’s the ICC bank was established by the State to support industry.“What we need now is a modern equivalent to the old ICC and ACC banks, which is dedicated to promoting local business in the city. Any profits realised from such investment in local businesses would be re-invested in other local businesses thus allowing the city to remain vibrant and economically self sustaining into the future,” he concluded.
