first_img Novomatic has struck a deal for Ainsworth Game Technology, in which the Austrian gaming giant holds a 52% stake, to distribute its products in the Asia-Pacific region.As a sales and service unit for Novomatic, AGT will be responsible for selling products across the region, which includes the supplier’s native Australia and New Zealand.Novomatic’s product suite for the region includes slot machines, electronic table games, casino management and media systems, linked progressive jackpots and sports betting solutions. It will also roll out its A-Star cabinets in the region through AGT.Robert Dijkstra, who was recently named vice president business development and sales Asia-Pacific at AGT, will represent both brands in the market, having previously worked in similar role for Novomatic in the region.Michael Barsin, who currently works as Novomatic’s sales manager for Southeast Asia, will also join Ainsworth in October, continuing to serve the region from his Hong Kong base and again representing both brands.Novomatic is the majority shareholder in AGT, having acquired a 52% stake in the business in January 2018. Its global sales division is already responsible for the sales and distribution of AGT products in Europe.“By bringing the two companies together we can increase the diversity of offerings to our customer base through the one channel,” Dijkstra said. “I am looking forward to overseeing this progressive development and believe it will benefit all stakeholders.”The deal comes after AGT last month posted a comprehensive loss of Aus$39.6m (£22.0m/€24.4m/US$28.7m) for its 2020 financial year, with the group putting this down to the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York July 2, 2014 at 8:48 pm So very much work here. My only wish is that when you expand your discussion you include senior citizens who live in domestic patnershhips because they cannot afford to get married. With a partnership(in most states) they do not lose benefits they would lose with a marriage because the stae sees it as a legal contract like a business so they take nothing. It is the only way many seniors survive, but it bothers many of them because they don’t know how the church sees their relationship. The two people are just as committed for all the right reasons, they just don’t want some of the paper work. They are right with God in that they have chosent each other, but they are not necessarily so publicly.

The charge was not to redefine or define the Church’s view of marriage, but to explore and clarify the many dimensions of our understanding of marriage, in all its many aspects, according to the three cornerstones that have always guided the Church’s understanding of spiritual matters. Many of the challenges that the body of the Church have faced during the past 125 years or so, including those mentioned in the comments above, make it clear that more than ever before, in our history as a faith community, there is a need to seek a better understanding of the basis of our beliefs about marriage as Sacrament, Covenant, and Civil Institution. Until we have a sound, clear theology of marriage to underpin our rituals and practices, how can we possibly teach others, as well as ourselves, what has been given to us by Christ Jesus? This will take time, as there is much work to be done before this is accomplished with the depth and breadth that will be necessary to meet this great Commission, this wonderful opportunity that the Task Force and the whole Body of the Church have been given. I pray every day for those who do this work on our behalf, and look forward with faith to what that future will bring for all of God’s children.Amen (May it be so!) Rector Martinsville, VA July 7, 2014 at 10:03 pm Steve – Matthew 19, the current canons, ritual, and catechism already define marriage. That issue was settled. If clergy and catechists have neglected their duty to teach it, then therein is the problem rather than believing that there was ever any ambiguity. The new urge to “seek a better understanding” is mainly from those who don’t agree with it, primarily because human experience and reason is being elevated above the plain word of Scripture. To have one’s “reason” serve as the locus of wisdom can, in the end, make anything possible seem reasonable. I shudder to think of our place if we allow a Convention of delegates to alter God’s first institution as though we are called to improve upon it. The hutzpah and gall would be staggering on earth and certainly in heaven.

There will indeed be further reflection on Jesus’ teaching on marriage, which, of course, includes other passages in addition to the one in Matthew 19, which lost its place in the marriage liturgy between 1928 and 1979. As I noted, we were, in this resource, focusing on the texts that people actually experience in weddings. And, of course, people are always encouraged to bring their own concerns and perspectives to any discussion. It is important to know that the range of study is broad, and time is short!Thanks as well for recognizing that this is hard work, especially so with a membership divided by many miles, and few opportunities actually to work face to face.

I, like so many, wish to express concern that no forgone conclusions be assumed that we as a Church are of one mind about changing the biblical and catholic meaning of marriage. That Matthew 19 (including the Genesis 2 reference) — by themselves the plain words of Christ — did not remain past a first draft begs the question as to whose experience should have primacy as we seek to know the mind of God. Cathedral Dean Boise, ID June 26, 2014 at 3:07 pm Rev Haller:First of all, thank you for your committee’s work on producing this document. Many hours went into it, I am sure. Of course, nothing is ever perfect the first draft., and you can’t include everything or you would have a 200 page study guide.Thank you for clarifying the initial nature of the study resource. Perhaps on page 6 of the resource it may have been wise to re-state that this an initial study kit, and that subsequent tool kits will have more Scriptural foundations in it. I beleive that Mr. Despar’s point is well taken that the Bible guide on pages 19 and 23 should have first started with a direct , full quote from Jesus Christ upon the nature of marriage from Matthew 19, since His words are probbaly the most important, and affirm God’s ideal in Genesis that marriage be exclusively between one man and one woman. The heading simply would have stated – “What did Jesus say?” . The other passages cited on pages 19 and 23 are completetly appropriate to discuss other aspects and qualities of marriage, but it does tend to lead a reasonable person to beleive that the Bible discussion is based upon an incomplete Scriptural foundation. I look forward to further study guides which delve into Matthew and Genesis as well.God belss you and the work ahead of you. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Same-Sex Marriage June 26, 2014 at 2:13 pm Doug, please note that this is an initial study resource. The original draft did indeed have a Bible Study on Genesis 1 and 2, but it was felt by the committee that we had more than enough to offer at this stage to get conversation started. There will be plenty of further reflection on Genesis (and Matthew) in subsequent material.As to Matthew 19, it is true that this passage was in the 1928 BCP as the appointed Gospel for use when there was a celebration of the Holy Communion as part of a marriage. However, it is no longer among the readings suggested in the 1979 BCP, and at this point the committee chose to focus on the texts that are in current use. The resource contains a Bible Study on Ephesians 5 on page 23, and I note that Ephesians also quotes the Genesis 2 text to which Jesus referred in Matthew. There is also a study guide for conversations about other Scriptural and liturgical elements that inform the theology of marriage, on page 19. June 26, 2014 at 7:55 am People in Jesus’ time had a history to look back on of failed and distorted relationships. “One flesh” relationships included those that were polygamous, contractual, convenient, wealth-producing, abusive, and any number of human creations. By the time of Jesus humanity had “blessed” itself into a corner of self-deception about how to live with one and many. Without the benefit of a marriage study guide, Jesus simply returned humanity’s attention to Genesis 2 when he states: “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19).Since we Episcopalians love to study would it not have been nice if this marriage study guide would have included the words of Christ on the subject of marriage? As it is, the study seems to assume and promote the forgone conclusion that we — like Jesus’ listeners — have found something new to call “marriage” that God himself forgot to think of. Not only is our human gall on this scary, but so also is the assumption that just because the State allows a new distortion of marriage that we must run behind and bless it. “Haven’t you read….?” Yes, we did and we’re going it alone, Lord. The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group cynthia reynolds says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rich Basta says: [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] The Episcopal Church Task Force on the Study of Marriage has released Dearly Beloved, resources for conversation and discussion.The following is a report From the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.We are pleased to offer to The Episcopal Church a resource for study and discussion about marriage. This topic is of historic and timeless significance for the church; practices of marriage are undergoing social change in our own day; and our church, acting through resolution A050 at General Convention in 2012, asked that we develop tools for discussion on this subject.We enter this conversation – as we always do when discerning our way forward – by considering those three sources of Anglican authority on the subject: scripture, tradition (including theology, liturgy, canon law, and history), and reason (including our human experience).We are 12 appointees: bishops, theologians, educators, and pastors. As the Task Force that was charged with providing resources for this reflection, we have deeply explored marriage through the lenses of scripture, tradition, and reason. We continue to study and we continue to consult as Resolution 2012-A050 directs.While we will not complete this work until we make our Blue Book report to General Convention 2015, we are able, at this time, to share with the church a bit of our efforts to date. And more importantly, we are eager to invite the church into discussion at the local level.Our hope is that many will take advantage of this moment in our history to be a part of discerning our way forward. In our day, what is God calling us to understand, to say, and perhaps to do in regards to marriage?We can only answer this question if far more than 12 people get involved. Broad discussion will assist those deputies and bishops – representatives of us all – at General Convention 2015, when they receive our report and consider possible responses to our church’s call to deepen this conversation.The resource may be used in a variety of settings, and it consists of three different formats, which may be used independently of each other: a 90-minute event (which can be divided into three 35-minute sessions); a variety of 45-minute forums; and a lengthy article for a study group. All three formats cover theology, history, scripture, current trends, and more, with guidelines for presentation and questions for group discussion.The Tool-Kit “Dearly Beloved”  hereThe PowerPoint for the “Carry-On Conversations” resource hereAccess the complete public website for General Convention’s A050 Task Force on Marriage here. Task Force Facebook page hereThe Episcopal Church’s Task Force on the Study of Marriage is enabled by Resolution A050 at the 2012 General Convention.Resolution A050 is available in full here.

It will see composer Benjamin Tassie perform a set of his music for acoustic instruments and electronics, as well as a performance of GFEST 2016 dance work “Marg – a pathway”, involving narratives from Indian epic Mahabharata exploring the ageless nature of gender fluidity and sexual diversity.All profits from ticket sales will go towards covering GFEST 2016 costs and the fundraising for GFEST 2017 activities, and the charity is also appealing for donations from arts lovers and performance attendees, to be used to commission new performance works for next year’s festival, which will also be its tenth anniversary.Niranjan Kamatkar, artistic director, GFEST – Gaywise FESTival, said:“From the beginning of GFEST- Gaywise FESTival in 2007, it has been an uphill struggle to fundraise for a fortnight of LGBTQ cross-arts events in London every year via conventional means, despite the huge support and artistic contributions made by LGBTQI artistes, performers and filmmakers for each GFEST.“As we move forward to GFEST in its 10th anniversary next year, we thought of directly appealing to arts lovers who can enjoy the performance event and contribute towards some costs and towards the next year’s new commissions. Last year (GFEST 2015) performance was a first successful step towards the new model of fundraising. I hope and feel confident that a number of art loving patrons will come forward this year and donate generously to make GFEST 2017 an even stronger platform for LGBTQI arts practitioners in London.” Melanie May | 21 October 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The hearing comes after the recent release of edited videos that purport to reveal illegal activities by Planned Parenthood employees, despite numerous claims that question their conclusions. Ahead of the hearing, Rep. Judy Chu (CA-27), a member of the Judiciary Committee, sent a letter signed by 11 members to Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (VA-6) urging the release of the “full, unedited source footage” as Congressional investigations proceed. Rep. Chu released the following statement:Just one day back from the August recess, and the Republicans are already resuming the political circus, picking up a baton originally carried over the summer by a biased group with a history of targeting Planned Parenthood. It is unfortunate that instead of focusing on any of the pressing issues on the Congressional agenda this fall, Republicans are choosing instead to try to discredit and smear a vital health care organization that millions of Americans depend on every day.“From just the witness list and dramatic title of today’s hearing, it is clear that the intention was not fact finding, but opinion confirming. It is the same old war on women – particularly low income women – wrapped in a new layer of fear and lies. The truth is that Planned Parenthood’s services are anything but ‘horrific.’ They are legal and safe. The real danger to women will come if Republicans get their way. Defunding Planned Parenthood would mean truly horrific consequences by forcing women back to the dangerous days of back alley and unlicensed abortions instead of the high quality care available today. Moreover, the health impacts will extend far beyond abortion services as well, since most women go to Planned Parenthood for reliable cancer screenings, family planning, STD testing, sex education, and more. Without this organization, women will be left with fewer – or no – options. That is the real goal of today’s hearing, and it is an unacceptable cost to our country and our families.”The letter can be found here. Government Rep.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Homeownership is becoming less stressful for many owners, according to a report from NerdWallet, despite the financial and emotional costs of owning a home. NerdWallet Mortgage Expert Tim Manni states that many Americans still put homeownership as a top priority.“Despite homebuying being a long and often exhausting process, and homeownership being a time-consuming and frankly expensive venture, 75 percent of Americans say it’s a priority, according to NerdWallet’s 2018 Home Buyer Report,” Manni said. “If recessions, high prices, and stress can’t kill the American dream, I’m not sure anything will. The American desire to own a home is incredibly resilient.”One reason for the lower stress of homeownership is the falling costs of owning a home. On average, homeowners reported paying $1,443 each month on housing costs, which includes mortgage payments, insurance, property taxes, and HOA fees. NerdWallet states that just one in three homeowners called these costs expensive, meaning the majority of homeowners find their costs of ownership to be affordable. Since the 2008-2010 recession, homeowners have gone from spending 25 percent of their income on homeownership to 21.5 percent as of 2016.Still, according to Manni, many homeowners could be saving even more money if they were to look closely at their insurance premiums.“Homeowners should get into the habit of conducting a yearly audit of their mortgage costs,” Manni says. “For example, contact your insurer to see if there are ways to save on homeowners insurance. Repairs like a new roof could lower your yearly premium, for instance.”Still, home repairs can be the most stressful aspect of owning a home. NerdWallet states that around 65 percent of homeowners have experienced some sort of anxiety related to owning their home, and 75 percent of that anxiety was due to unexpected home repair costs.Manni suggests homeowners should put aside just 2 percent of their yearly home costs for repairs. Other stress factors include late payments and delinquency.Despite this, over half of homeowners reported feeling accomplished and proud of their home.
