First lessons in slots: Lessons #10 to #12

sevjeoym

first_imgSlots Access to information is one of the best things about living in this past decade.  Video slots were new, but so many people wanted to play them that it ballooned and ballooned to what it was then and is today. The number of players around the world who play video slots consistently in websites, online casinos, etc. is unbelievable big and is only growing as the opportunity became easier to play.  Topics: Casino & games Product & technology Slots Can you imagine your grandmother being first in putting on special glasses to play something? It’s just not going to happen.  Lesson #11: The death of augmented reality slots Lesson #10: The emergence of 3D slots At the time it was technologically new, the players had not really seen those, and it was assumed that this would amaze and awe players. It was assumed that KPI’s would rise.  But the reality was that it wasn’t as popular as people expected. In fact, those slots usually did worse.  Guy Hasson’s lessons from a storied career in slot development continue, with warnings about augmented reality and 3D, and why slots will never die. A few small slot companies tried it and failed. A few big companies tried in order to have the technology, and then shelved it.  A few years ago, when Pokemon Go broke out in a supernova with its augmented reality, it seemed like the entire start-up world went crazy. And that included slot creators.  Something to think about. Why? Because the players do not play slots for technological wonder, but to escape reality into nostalgia and fantasy. The companies spent their efforts on the technology and making it look cool, rather than on what makes slots work: the theme, the symbols, and the math.  Everyone tried to imitate the success of Pokemon Go, in all games. Three new slot start-ups approached me and asked me to help create an augmented reality slot game. Lesson #12: Slots will never die Which means that slot players are not first adopters, certainly not of technology. center_img Augmented reality and virtual reality slots will return, in a big way, but only when grandmothers and grandfathers are the last adopters, not the first adopters.  “It’s the next big thing,” each told me in his/her own words.  Pretty early on in 2010 and 2011 new slot companies emerged, in both real money and social, that offered 3D animations and 3D characters as symbols for their slots.  With today’s information you see how many people play, how long they play, how often, how they spend their paycheck immediately after getting it , etc.  20th May 2021 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter For this, I pulled out knowledge I received pretty early in my career: The age of the slot players. Slot players are relatively old. A 45-year-old is a young slot player. Not all slot players, but many of them are in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and upwards.  First lessons in slots: Lessons #10 to #12 The longer this lasts, the more clear it is that gambling (and slots in particular) is a part of human nature. People did it when it was illegal and still do it where it continues to be illegal. And people do it when it’s legal.  Regardless of the future of technology, slots will never go away, because they fulfill a need in human nature.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: First lessons in slots Back when I was in Playtech, the supplier was already a giant in the field, employing more than 600 in the company. But Playtech was just a few years old. And I heard some stories from one of the first employees about how it had started  Guy Hasson worked for Playtech for three years before becoming Playtika’s content manager, responsible for the content of Slotomania and Caesars Casino. He is now a social slot consultant, specialising in game popularity. Email Addresslast_img read more

Gio Aplon’s brilliant individual try against the Chiefs

sevjeoym

first_imgSunday May 15, 2011 Gio Aplon’s brilliant individual try against the Chiefs Gio Aplon scored this sensational solo effort against the Chiefs on Saturday in their Super Rugby meeting in Hamilton. The home side won 30-23 however, coming back from being 20-3 down. Having flown off into a commanding lead, the Stormers, who last week lost to the Crusaders but have been in great form otherwise, would have thought that the game was dead and buried at halftime. The Chiefs came back though, scoring 27 points in the second half to take a great win. The try of the game however came from the losing side, as Springbok flyer Gio Aplon showed that there most certainly still is room for the little guy in professional rugby. One of, if not the lightest players in the tournament, the former Sevens star glided through the Chiefs cover. The angle he took initially, to break a tackle from a nicely timed Jean De Villiers pass, was what put him through. The way he casually bobbed and weaved, beating All Black players, was great to see and no doubt makes this try one of the best we’ve seen in the last few weeks. In fact it was last year in the selfsame fixture that the Stormers scored another unbelievable try , that time it was a team effort though, with Bryan Habana crossing for the honours. Besides this great effort, the loss was disappointing for the tourists, with captain Schalk Burger naturally unhappy about how they played in the last 40. “The second half was pretty disgusting really.” There was a touch and go call that resulted in a penalty try, with Aplon himself being yellow carded, but all credit to the Chiefs for a fantastic comeback against one of the top sides in the tournament this year. As for the Aplon try, you won’t see many better this year. Enjoy.

Chilmark’s long agrarian history on the windswept southern edge of Martha’s Vineyard underpins the design approach to this house and studio for a multi-generational family. The site, a former sheep grazing field, overlooks Chilmark pond, with long views to the Atlantic, and is edged by a series of Chilmark’s massive, meandering stone fences. In deference to the field’s history, and to the simple New England forms that shape the area’s architectural heritage, we developed the house and studio as a pair of barns with low pitched roofs that sit quietly in the landscape. Two buildings form a series of courtyards and outdoor spaces, with varying degrees of privacy and views. In a nod to New England’s bank barns, the long barn is set into the hillside, diminishing its scale from the north and creating direct connections to the outside from both upper and lower levels.Save this picture!© David Sundberg / EstoAt the heart of this design process lies a mentorship and evolving collaboration. Five years ago, Alan Organschi was approached by his student, Aaron Schiller, whom he had taught during Yale’s first year building project. Aaron asked Gray Organschi to share the firm’s long experience with house design and to work collaboratively on the project. Aaron, whose family had spent decades in Chilmark and had outgrown their beloved A-frame, led the family quest for a new piece of land that would accommodate a family compound and, after years of searching, he found this rare piece of land.Save this picture!© David Sundberg / EstoSave this picture!Lower Level PlanSave this picture!© David Sundberg / EstoSave this picture!Upper Level PlanSave this picture!© David Sundberg / EstoThe simple, dark buildings are approached via a farm road that winds through Chilmark’s dense thicket of scrub oak. A broad stair links a large south-facing porch back to the farm road and provides pedestrian access through the field to the beaches beyond. Based in a shared love of the dense aggregation of New England’s farm complexes, we sited the studio and the house barns tightly together, creating a charged outdoor space between them, which provides the approach to the house’s entrance. The sweeping Atlantic views are only experienced after a visitor enters the house; the northwest entry courtyard is edged by a mute, charred cedar wall with screened apertures, creating a private courtyard with views west over the rolling fields and stone fences. Inside the dark buildings, bleached ash lines all surfaces. The ceilings in the public rooms lift to the high ridges, with dropped areas to create a children’s sleeping loft high in the roof. The lower level creates a series of bedrooms with shared spaces between that look into light wells, landscaped with local rocks and moss.Save this picture!© David Sundberg / EstoProject gallerySee allShow lessStudents Construct Timber Structures in the Argentinian Countryside at Hello Wood Ar…ArticlesA Triangulated Ramp Made For People With Reduced Mobility In MindMisc Share Houses Save this picture!© David Sundberg / Esto+ 23 Share CopyAbout this officeGray Organschi ArchitectureOfficeFollowAaron SchillerOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDukes CountyUnited StatesPublished on May 12, 2017Cite: “Chilmark House / Gray Organschi Architecture + Aaron Schiller” 12 May 2017.

Workers fight for safety, mourn those who died on the job

sevjeoym

first_imgSyracuse, N.Y. — April 28, Workers Memorial Day, commemorates workers killed, injured or made ill at their jobs. That day, Antonio Salinas chalked the outline of a fallen person on the pavement in downtown Syracuse. Salinas, a dairy farm worker from Mexico, was seriously hurt on a forklift last October at the Central New York business where he worked and lived. No longer able to do his job, he was evicted by the farm owner who denied the injury was related to his work.Salinas, along with others from the Workers Center of Central New York (WC-CNY), marked the day by leafleting other workers and making street art. Some bore signs: “We mourn the dead, we fight for the living/ Honremos a los muertos, luchemos por los vivos.” (tinyurl.com/jpxodnl) Workers Center of Central New York demonstrates in Syracuse, April 28.Photo: Rosa MejiasIn Central New York in 2015, 42 workers died on the job, including Sean Tilghman, a sanitation worker who was hit by a speeding car and died instantly on the street. He was one of the 4,600 workers killed each year on their jobs in the United States, according to Occupational Safety and Health Administration data. That doesn’t count the estimated 50,000 others who die from illnesses caused by their jobs. (tinyurl.com/zb7vaoo)Dorothy Wigmore, with the Occupational Health Clinical Centers of SUNY Upstate Medical Center, has highlighted sobering facts about workplace injuries and deaths: Though headlines dramatize fatalities among police, sanitation workers, like Tilghman, die at twice the rate as cops and almost seven times the rate of firefighters. The top 20 low-wage U.S. jobs — mostly held by women — have 77 percent of reported job-linked injuries and illness. Over half of serious work injuries are not even reported.Health and safety are where bosses often cut corners first. Estimates on injury numbers run low because only immediate “lost time” injuries are counted, but not others like repetitive-stress injuries to factory workers or illnesses like cancer caused by workplace toxins.There are many hidden work-related injuries. Workers with the lowest wages, disproportionately Black and Latino/a workers, also have the highest hypertension rates. The growing “gig economy” means more bad health for workers, as “temps” are 50 percent more likely to be hurt at work than “regular” employees. (syr.com)Under capitalism, worker deaths and injuries are calculated by the bosses as part of the cost of “doing business.” Employers don’t risk much by endangering employees. Under OSHA penalties, the recent average employer cost for an injured worker was $2,148. For a dead worker? The median penalty to employers was $7,000. (tinyurl.com/hn36bkd)Migrant workers fight for workplace safetyLatino/a workers are 9 percent more likely to be killed or injured on the job, given higher rates of high-risk manual work. The AFL-CIO “Death on the Job” says 64 percent of Latino/a workplace deaths in 2014 were immigrant workers. (tinyurl.com/axw6cgf)Organizer Nikeeta Slade at the WC-CNY is particularly concerned about Mexican, Guatemalan and Honduran migrant workers, who are often reluctant to report safety violations for fear they will be forced to leave the country.But WC-CNY member Antonio Salinas is part of a growing movement of migrant and immigrant workers fighting for workplace safety. After his injury and loss of work, Salinas filed a medical appeal with workers’ compensation. After months in a legal labyrinth he won the right to medical benefits and back wages. He says he is committed to fighting because “We come here to make a living, not to lose our life.”Crispin Hernandez and Saul Pinto, also of the WC-CNY, exposed unsafe working conditions in Lowville at Marks Farm, which employed them as dairy workers. Their boss fired them for reporting him to OSHA. On Workers Memorial Day they received the “Health and Safety Heroism at Work” award from the CNY Area Labor Federation, AFL-CIO, for their courage. Speaking at a WC-CNY May Day celebration, Hernandez said: “I was trying to better conditions for myself and my co-workers. Unity makes power.” (workerscentercny.org/blog-2)On April 28, as workers across the U.S. remembered their fallen and injured comrades, striking Verizon workers walked the picket line in front of a Syracuse-area tech-support call center where almost 300 people are usually at work. They are members of the Communication Workers and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. Some do very dangerous jobs, including aerial and transformer installation. Call center workers’ and telephone operators’ jobs are ranked the third most stressful in the workplace. (tinyurl.com/gnxxp4p)On the line, workers emphasized they’re fighting for both a fair contract and safe working conditions. They told this reporter: “We are not striking just for ourselves. We are doing this for everyone.”  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Charter contract changes approved

sevjeoym

first_img Facebook By admin – June 12, 2018 Modifications to the charter performance contract with Ector Success Academy Network and asking the human resources department to prepare a form to send to superintendent search firms were approved by the Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees.The meeting was a work study session, but these two elements, along with approval of a board policy regarding partnership charters, were action items. The policy also was approved.Other things on the agenda were for discussion.ECISD has eight campuses on improvement required status under state accountability regulations. Ector Middle School, Noel and Zavala elementary are in their fifth year. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.Pending approval of the contract by the Texas Education Agency, Ector Success Academy Network is the nonprofit that will run Ector Middle School.According to the TEA communications department, ECISD has received approval for the partnership contingent upon some technical modifications to the performance contract. The district must provide those modifications by July 2.The agreement, which would take effect in July, could potentially be for 10 years, but if quick success is not achieved they could be out in two years. TEA’s sanctions would be stayed for those two years.The board on Tuesday also approved having the district human resources department prepare a form to request proposals from superintendent search firms. Superintendent Tom Crowe has announced that he is retiring effective Dec. 22.Board members discussed various search firm possibilities in Texas. Trustee Delma Abalos and Secretary Donna Smith said they would like a nationwide search and the rest of the board agreed.Carol Gregg, board president, said there is a limited pool of superintendents nationwide. “Superintendents don’t grow on trees,” Gregg said.The panel also discussed a request to approve the 2018-19 budget.The school board is legally required to approve three separate budgets — general fund, food service and debt service, the board recap said.The proposed general fund budget is $269.06 million — a $26 million increase. It does not include any raises for employees, but it does include the retention incentive for positions that qualify for one.The board is expected to vote on the budget at its 6 p.m. June 26 meeting.However, that includes potential revenue of more than $11.4 million if a tax ratification election passes.That election could be held in September, but has not yet been called by the board.Estimated increases in tax collections, foundation school funding and state revenue add up to approximately $14.8 million in addition funding, the recap said.Those gains will be offset by increases in expenses for staffing changes such as hiring teachers and aides for increasing enrollment. An estimated 1,000 more students are projected for next year which would bring in $3.8 million.Also included in the increase is the Ector Middle School initiative ($1.3 million); an increase in campus and student allotments to pre-cut levels ($2.39 million); an increase in estimated Teacher Retirement System benefit costs of $1.195 million; an increase in property insurance premiums of $705,000; an increase in estimated health insurance and workers comp costs of $715,000; and increased operational needs ($534,000).The projected increases in revenue also fall short of replacing the more than $30 million that has been cut or not spent. There have been no staff raises for the past two years due to the drop in appraised property values, the recap said.The board also discussed a request for approval of a resolution authorizing the issuance of $20 million in maintenance tax notes to help ECISD through its months of low tax collections. Chief Financial Officer David Harwell said the money would be paid back to Frost Bank by March 2019.The district has done this previously. An alternative would be using money held in long-term investments to help with cash flow concerns, but the interest paid on the tax notes could be less than the interest gained on the long-term investments, the recap said.The $20 million represents about one month of operating costs, the recap said.In the public comment section of the meeting, Texas Rep. Brooks Landgraf, R-Odessa, asked the board if there was anything he could do for them since the legislative session starts in January 2019.Landgraf said he knows there are a number of challenges ECISD and other districts are facing.Landgraf said he voted for the law will take over school districts if they do not come off the improvement required list after five years. He said the law was not implemented as intended and it points to a larger problem of an assault on local control.Gregg said the law doesn’t seem to address the problem and doesn’t have any impact on fixing the problem.She added that getting an outside entity to partner with the district is difficult and complex.Landgraf said he wrote a letter to Texas Commissioner of Education Mike Morath in support of the Ector charter concept.He added that he also filed bills that were not supported to repeal recapture in its current form and high-stakes testing. Under recapture, or Robin Hood as it’s commonly known, property wealthy school districts give some of their funds to poorer districts.In other business:Trustees discussed the reorganization of the board’s officers — president, vice president and secretary. Board members will vote for new officers at the June 26 meeting.
