He will take over when Peter Lewis retires after the firm’s annual general meeting in June.Bell has been a member of the Game board since 2003 and is currently the senior independent director. He has extensive retail and board experience with Ladbrokes and Allied Domecq.Lewis has been instrumental in overseeing Game’s growth over the past decade but more recently the company has been hit by competition from downloads and has been forced to rethink its business model, with an expansion into online sales. Game, with more than 1,300 stores in nine European markets and Australia, yesterday said profit before tax and one-off items dropped 58 per cent to £37.8m in the year to 31 January and it froze its final dividend at 3.9p per share, giving it an unchanged total of 5.78p.Sales at shops open over a year fell 6.7 per cent, and were down a further 12.1 per cent in the 12 weeks to 23 April. But the company said its expansion online and in second-hand products would help it cope better than rivals in a weak consumer sector. Game’s shares jumped 11.1 per cent to close at 50.25p.

The project tries (seeks or aims) to make visible the current moment of the city of Lima, and especially the neighborhood of Miraflores, in which the great cultural density of Lima is intermingled with cosmopolitan lifestyle. This is expressed in all the temporal spheres of society, reaching its best formal representations in literature, decoration and gastronomy.Save this picture!© Nicolás SaiehSave this picture!© Nicolás SaiehThis cultural density is perfectly combined with a good amount of sophistication and results in the great Peruvian cuisine that surprises the world in the current fervid foodie scene, as it was recently described by the NY Times.Save this picture!© Juan Solano OjasiSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Juan Solano OjasiAn initial concept then appears, which allows us to advance under a guideline: SOPHISTICATION.Save this picture!SectionThe challenge was to build a building that reflects this value and initial concept, through design, with the challenge of consolidating itself as the best residential building in Lima and as a reference in South America.Save this picture!© Nicolás SaiehHow not to replicate this concept in Architecture ?, How should be a project that speaks the same language? That is the initial challenge.Save this picture!© Nicolás SaiehThis initial concept forced us (and allowed us) to advance in a long discussion that was giving shape to the project, even without even thinking about its Architecture … what Is SOPHISTICATED ?, How is a sophisticated structure ?, How is a sophisticated program ?, How is a sophisticated department ?, How should be its spaces? … its finished ?, etc. Just as the kitchen attempts to rescue the roots of this Peruvian cultural density, the challenge is – from Architecture – to rescue the modernism of Miraflores. The one that had been lost by the growing insecurity and that today, with a more secure city, recovers all sense. How to recover the dignity of public space, how to integrate the pedestrian, this new citizen of Miraflores: cosmopolitan, urban, cultured and sophisticated, in a building that inspires “life from another angle.”Project gallerySee allShow lessPhiladelphia Museum of Art Breaks Ground on Frank Gehry’s $196 Million Renovation Sc…Architecture NewsInsights From The Man Behind Gensler, The World’s Biggest Architecture FirmVideosProject locationAddress:Av.

Victory in Baltimore: Charges dropped for May Day protesters

first_imgCharges have been dropped on three of the protesters seen above, who were arrested at the ICE office on May 1.Three demonstrators who were arrested while protesting at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office on May 1 won their cases in court on May 22.Those whose charges were dismissed include the Rev. C.D. Witherspoon, a noted Baltimore activist and former president of the Baltimore Southern Christian Leadership Conference; Rasika Ruwanpathirana, an immigrant, filmmaker and representative of Workers World Party; and Andrew Mayton, a union activist. A fourth protester, Baltimore law student Alec Summerfield, is scheduled to go to court in June. All four had been charged with “failure to obey.”On May 1, after hundreds marched from downtown Baltimore, the four were arrested at Baltimore’s ICE office as they demanded that ICE shut down. They were also demanding a $15-an-hour minimum wage and an end to racism and police terror.Sharon Black, speaking for the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly, the organizer of the demonstration, said, “ICE is the notorious agency that has brutally separated immigrant families and deported scores of immigrants under new orders from the Trump administration.”Black continued, “This is a victory today. Our demand to stop deportations is all the more urgent since the Trump administration is considering ending the Temporary Protected Status on Haitian immigrants.“The Haitians eligible for TPS, who are mainly survivors of natural disasters in Haiti that made their lives there impossible, have recently had their status extended, but only for six months. The People’s Power Assembly and Workers World Party point out that if their TPS is withdrawn, it would put some 58,000 Haitian people at risk for immediate deportation.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Students take free medical clinics to the Dominican Republic

first_imgMadison Goforth is a Senior journalism major from Tyler, Texas. Three-star D-End Izaih Filikitonga signs with TCU football for fall season Linkedin printTCU students travel to the Dominican Republic for a medical mission trip.A group of TCU students spent spring break in the Dominican Republic hoping to get experience in the medical field but many said they got a life changing experience instead.The TCU chapter of the Global Medical Training (GMT) organization traveled to four different communities and worked with doctors and translators to serve those people, said Abby Mather, a sophomore psychology major.Avery Haugen, president of the GMT at TCU said the goal of the trip was to host free clinics for small communities that otherwise have very little access to healthcare medications.“We treated 937 patients over the course of four days,” Haugen said. “The most common treatments prescribed were parasite treatments and antibiotics but we also gave out a lot of vitamins to people of all ages.”Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said external causes make up 20 percent of deaths in the Dominican Republic and infectious diseases make up eight percent.GMT is an international organization founded by Dr. Wil Johnson in 2003 to help impoverished communities in Central America.Belle Strum, a sophomore nursing major, said the trip was a great way to gain experience in the medical field.“We set up a clinic in a school or church in different rural villages each day of the trip,” Strum said. “Many of the people we served were actually Haitian immigrants who came to the Dominican Republic to work in the sugarcane fields.”Strum said the biggest impact of the trip was that it reassured herself why she wanted to study medicine.“In the US, many people in the medical field get distracted by just wanting to make a lot of money and make a name for themselves, but the doctors on our trip were so passionate about serving and helping,” she said. “That’s something I want to strive for and carry with me into my future career.” ReddIt Linkedin Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ + posts Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ The Leap: unique restaurants that take Frog Bucks World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Previous articleLove, Sex and Hate in the Middle EastNext articleDiscovering Global Citizenship program hosts panel on immigration and borders Madison Goforth RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Twitter Facebook ReddIt Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ Student finds joy in volunteering for ‘miracle’ baseball league Army ROTC spends weekend practicing tactical missions Madison Goforth Facebook Avery Haugen takes a patient’s blood pressure (Photo courtesy of Avery Haugen).last_img read more

Cartoonist Zunar could get 43 years in prison for nine cartoons

first_img(logo : AFP) News to go further RSF_en Organisation News Receive email alerts March 17, 2021 Find out more Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again Zunar, whose real name is Zulkiflee Anwar Alhaque, will be facing up to 43 years in prison on nine counts under the Sedition Act at the trial, which starts tomorrow after being postponed from 7 July.The nine cartoons criticized corruption in Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s government and the high-profile trial of opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim.“We deplore the persecution of Zunar and urge the Malaysian authorities to drop all the charges against him,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“This iniquitous trial is the latest example of the Najib Razak government’s political reprisals against Zunar, reprisals that it now takes openly. Its repeated use of the Sedition Act, which in this case criminalizes political cartoons, is totally illegitimate and disproportionate.”In the past two years, the Malaysian government has repeatedly used the Sedition Act, a draconian law dating back to 1948, to bring judicial proceedings designed to silence dissenting voices and compel journalists and content providers to censor themselves.The proceedings against Zunar are of the type known as a SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) or gag suit. Even if Zunar does not get a jail sentence, the proceedings have a chilling effect, they deter the public from expressing their views and protesting, and they encourage cartoonists and media outlets in general to censor themselves.Zunar has already been detained twice under the Sedition Act, for two days in September 2010 after he published a book of his cartoons called “Cartoon-o-phobia” and for three days in February 2015 after the police raided his office on 28 January and seized about 100 of his cartoons and other works. The Malaysian authorities have banned seven of his works as “detrimental to public order.”Malaysia is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
