To find out more and to access all of our Power Your Payments content, click here: Power your payments in gaming This report is designed to provide operators with the market insights, some helpful guidance they may need to consider to help them meet the increasingly demanding payment expectations of their customers. These findings may help brands looking to empower their customers to pay how they want, and in doing so, they could reap the rewards of a customer-centric global payments strategy.The following statistics in this report represent the results of research conducted between 27th April – 15th May 2020 by Opinium Research and commissioned by Worldpay from FIS as part of the ‘Power Your Payments Campaign’ unless specified with a reference. Power Your Payments is a research campaign commissioned by Worldpay from FIS that compiles the digital payment experiences and preferences of players from nine countries around the world. This report explores and analyses how players want to pay online, and how preferences vary in key markets. For online gaming, including sports betting, online casinos and lotteries, payments are an integral part of the player experience. Today’s digital-savvy players have concrete expectations about how they want to pay, and our study shows that they’re reluctant to compromise. Furthermore, as the world’s relationship with online gaming continues to evolve, many countries are currently reviewing regulations. Shrewd operators have an opportunity to align with local player preferences to help them break into these markets with an excellent payment experience that stands out from the competition. Our report explores the opportunity for operators to use a customer-centric payment strategy to attract new players and its key findings include: Paymentscenter_img 27% of players surveyed drop out and use a different company when they can’t pay using their preferred method. Consider aligning your payments process with your audience’s preferences to help increase your conversion rate for new players.70% of players factor in the speed of payouts – ideally, they should be made in 30 minutes or less – when deciding which company to use. To meet consumer expectations, operators should consider this when deciding on their payout methods.Player payment preferences such as payment method, device and ease of use vary globally. Less than half of players surveyed prefer to pay with credit or debit cards. With no one-size-fits-all answer, you can look at optimising your payments experience on a local level to align with changing expectations across different markets and demographics. 15th January 2021 | By Aaron Noy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland US Germany Spain Argentina Brazil Colombia Mexico Australia Topics: Tech & innovation Payments Email Addresslast_img read more

This sustainable building addresses the pressing need for affordable housing in Silicon Valley, one of the nation’s most expensive markets. The vibrant community provides 66 affordable rental homes for low-income families, including units reserved for formerly homeless families. The plan optimizes an underutilized site previously occupied by one single-story commercial building and bounded by a busy highway, an active Hindu temple, and residential uses. The massing strategy and program arrangement—placing the homes away from the front of the building—shield the common areas, courtyards, and residential units from noise and pollution. Tucking the parking in a dense, tandem garage allowed the design to be driven by the open space. Elements on the site are organized to promote an environment for healthy living, cultivate a sense of community, and maximize connection to the landscape.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!Site planSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteNow an urban tech hub, this area was once an oak, grassland, and marsh ecosystem. The entry plaza references this lost landscape with oaks, native grass berms, and large bio-infiltration gardens that capture and treat storm water before returning it to the aquifer. A plaza memorial celebrates the building’s namesake: Sunnyvale Mayor Edwina Benner—California’s first female mayor. The entry sequence activates community life by bringing together service spaces, shared mailed and laundry resources, community rooms, and an after-school. The busy courtyard is the heart of the community, offering space for creative play as well as integrated benches and planters close to all the ground-floor uses. The GreenPoint-Rated housing is divided into three bars interspersed by podium courtyards, bringing homes closer to nature. Open-air breezeway bridges connect the housing bars, offering views into courtyards and out to the surrounding city. Homes open onto or overlook the courtyards from private patios and balconies. An all-electric building, the development is among the first affordable housing projects in California to have zero operating emissions. When this project kicked-off in 2015, all-electric buildings were not common. However, the non-profit developer believed this was the right direction, and the architect’s progressive sustainability practice was a perfect fit.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteSave this picture!Upper floor planSave this picture!© Bruce DamonteThis building features one of the first applications of a central heat pump water heating system—a custom high-efficiency design with a CO2 refrigerant—developed and monitored with the help ofCalifornia Energy Commission EPIC grant and an energy consultant with the goal of eliminating the use of gas entirely and radically reducing carbon footprint. The massing of the building—three north-south bars—optimizes solar orientation while providing a buffer from the freeway. In response to the freeway adjacency, good unit compartmentalization and a filtered ventilation system were early and central goals for the project. Each residential wing is served by an innovative compact recirculation loop from a dedicated central heat pump hot water plant. Enough solar power is generated on the roof to cover common loads. Because residents are opted in to a local community utility with 100% renewable power, the building’s operation is entirely independent of fossil fuels.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Coral Villa / HUNI ArchitectesSelected ProjectsVila Franca de Xira Municipal Library / Miguel Arruda Arquitectos AssociadosSelected Projects Share Edwina Benner Plaza / David Baker ArchitectsSave this projectSaveEdwina Benner Plaza / David Baker Architects Sustainability: Association for Energy Affordability Houses David Baker Architects MEP: Structural Engineer: Area:  110 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  General Contractor: CopyHouses•Sunnyvale, United States CopyAbout this officeDavid Baker ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSunnyvaleUnited StatesPublished on March 08, 2020Cite: “Edwina Benner Plaza / David Baker Architects” 07 Mar 2020.

China makes reporter pay for fall in share prices

first_img March 12, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific News August 28, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 China makes reporter pay for fall in share prices China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Help by sharing this information ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders condemns Chinese business reporter Wang Xiaolu’s arrest over an article that is alleged to have precipitated a fall in share prices at the end of July. Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News News Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on China Wang Xiaolu, who works for the independent business magazine Caijing, was arrested at his Beijing home on 25 August for “fabricating and spreading false information about securities and futures trading.”Published in Caijing on 20 July, the offending article said that the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), which polices the Chinese stock markets, was considering ending interventions aimed at stabilizing share prices. The day after its publication, the CSRC described the article as “irresponsible” and subsequently blamed it for the 27 July fall in prices on the Shanghai exchange, the forerunner of this month’s crash.The authorities have not yet said whether Wang has been formally charged. Eight employees of the stockbroking company CITIC Securities and two CSRC employees have also been arrested. Officially, they are “assisting the investigation” into illegal share trading.“We call for Wang Xiaolu’s immediate release without any charges being brought against this Caijing reporter,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“As well as ridiculous, the accusations against Wang are symptomatic of the Chinese government’s desire to control media coverage of share price movements. Suggesting that a business journalist was responsible for the spectacular fall in share prices is a denial of reality. Blaming the stock market crisis on a lone reporter is beyond absurd.”The Chinese authorities have gone to great lengths to censor media and online coverage of the recent dramatic movements in share prices. The leading Communist Party-controlled media outlets such as People’s Daily, Xinhua and CCTV have not covered or have barely covered the market movements.At the same time, many directives have been issued to website operators demanding the suppression of analyses of the Shanghai crash or articles regarded as alarmist.China is ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Taiga Treats First Cancer Patient in TBX-3400-003 Clinical Trial in Israel

first_img AURORA, Colo. & PETACH TIQWA, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Taiga Biotechnologies, a cell-based immunotherapy company, announced today that a colorectal cancer patient at the Davidoff Cancer Center, Beilenson Hospital, Rabin Medical Center, Petach Tikva, was the first recipient of a treatment designed to treat drug-resistant solid tumors in the company’s recently approved Israeli trial. ( NCT04640246 ). “The initiation of this study, under the aegis of the Israeli Ministry of Health, represents a significant milestone in the clinical development of the TBX-3400 program. We now have four clinical programs that have begun in the past 18 months,” said Dr. Yosef Refaeli, Chief Executive Officer at Taiga Biotechnologies. “We hope to generate critical data that will enable us to focus the development of TBX-3400 in the human clinical space,” said Dr. Brian C. Turner, Chief Scientific Officer. “We are eager to explore the ability of TBX-3400 to treat multiple tumor types in patients whose disease no longer responds to commonly used therapies,” said Professor Salomon M. Stemmer, head of the research unit at the Davidoff Center and Primary Investigator of the study. “This novel approach for liberating the patient’s own immune system against the tumor may also hold promise for many different types of malignancy in both adults and children,” said Dr. Jerry Stein, head of Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit, Schneider Childrens’ Medical Center, who is overseeing production of TBX-3400 for the Israeli clinical trial. About TBX-3400 Taiga has developed a proprietary recombinant protein that can passively enter cells without the need for binding and uptake by a cell surface receptor, which can transiently alter intracellular levels of a critical protein involved in survival and proliferation called “MYC.” Normally, white blood cells of the immune system that come into contact with a tumor within a patient are crippled by multiple suppressive signals generated by the tumor. Treating these immune cells with the special protein enables them to break free from the cancer-derived dampening signals. Treated cells are called “TBX-3400.” To make TBX-3400 for a cancer patient, blood-derived white blood cells are incubated with Taiga’s recombinant protein in a certified lab under the most exacting standards of Good Manufacturing Practice. The cells are rinsed in a machine and then formulated in a standard solution before they are infused back into the patient in the ambulatory clinic. This approach results in a transient increase in immune function by allowing the immune cells to target the cancer. This treatment may be beneficial for a variety of solid tumors and infectious diseases. Viruses such as hepatitis B, like cancers, can escape from the immune system by triggering suppressive signals in white blood cells. Cells that are treated with the patented protein are temporarily liberated, allowing them to fight the virus infected cells. Summary of TBX-3400 clinical programs As mentioned above, Taiga has begun several clinical programs in the past year and a half. Taiga has successfully completed a first-in-human safety and early efficacy pilot study in adults, covered by the regulations of the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare.
