Underlying profit rose 159 per cent to $696m (£448m)?in the six months to July, though pre-tax profit dropped 5.2 per cent to $631m due to exceptional items. The profit gains were lifted by strong copper prices in particular. The company said it sold its metal at an average of $6,981 per tonne, up 73 per cent from last year.The London-listed group said it expects to feel an impact from costs in diesel and steel as well as currencies, and forecast that full-year gross cash costs would rise to 180 to 200 cents per pound from 159 cents last year.“It’s likely to be towards the north of that guidance because we are seeing some cost pressures,” said chief financial officer Matthew Hird yesterday, adding that cost increases for the rest of the year could hit five per cent.The company said its smaller power, gold and petroleum divisions were also performing well. Spending on new and existing projects rose by 48 per cent to $290m, after a year of cash conservation. Kazakhmys also confirmed it is considering a secondary listing in Hong Kong. “We want to raise our profile in China. It is our core market. This would be one way to do it,”?said chief executive Oleg Novachuk. Shares closed up 5.2 per cent at £11.29 yesterday making the mining company the biggest gainer in the FTSE 100.

Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Esports “Without a unified understanding of the implications of inappropriate betting behaviour and observance of anti-corruption mechanisms, esports runs the risk of facilitating attractive fraud opportunities for bad actors,” it said. “Accordingly, it is important that professional players understand that breaches of ESIC’s Anti-Corruption Code are a serious concern. ESIC suspends seven CS:GO players for betting ESIC added that several “associates of the offending parties” were also involved in betting on the offending players’ matches, with some of the associates’ bets mirroring those of the players. This would be a violation of article 2.2.2 of the code. ESIC reminded professional esports players that players betting on events could be a major fraud and integrity risk for the sport. In September, ESIC said it was nearing the end of this probe. Topics: Esports esports betting esports regulation FPS Sports integrity ESIC did not reveal which players placed bets on their own matches and which placed bets on matches they were not involved in. Betting on any matches with a player’s own sport is a violation of article 2.2.1 of the ESIC Anti-Corruption Code. Each of the players will be banned from all competitive CS:GO organised or promoted by members of ESIC, such as leading competition organisers ESL, DreamHack, WePlay and Blast. The seven players are Stephen “sjanastasi” Anastasi of Team Lakers, Daryl “Mayker” May of Ground Zero Gaming, Akram “akram” Smida and Corey “netik” Browne, who both player for Rooster. “ESIC will issue further updates in due course as we work with stakeholders to finalise our investigations and we appreciate the community’s patience whilst this happens,” it said. The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has suspended seven Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) players from the Mountain Dew League (MDL) in Australia for 12 months each for betting on matches, with some betting on matches in which they played. In addition, ESIC said that these suspensions are part of a wider investigation which is still ongoing, and so it could not provide further information until this investigation is resolved. It added that these seven players may face further punishment following completion of the larger investigation. 26th October 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle ESIC is also looking into further anti-corruption breaches within the MDL in both Australia and North America, including potential instances of match-fixing. The integrity body also referred the matter to Australian law enforcement, which may take action itself. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Also banned are Damian “JD/The Real Goat” Simonovic, Carlos “Rackem” Jefferys and Joshua “jhd” Hough-Devine, all of Team Rooster 2. “It is crucially important that professional players (at the very least) abstain from placing bets on the game in which they earn an income from in order to preserve the integrity of the esports landscape internationally and mitigate the potential for bad actors to take advantage of our sport.” It said the nature of a match-fixing probe made this process “significantly more complex” than looking into betting offences.

This private residence is an addition in the family property having an existing 1-strory house. The new house is placed to give each other enough privacy and flexibility to expand. The house is for a young newly-married couple in their late 20’s. Modern life style and social life of the owner is driving the functions and the architecture of the house.Save this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholThis house layout is designed totally started from Feng Shui advices. Usually it would take away a lot of design ideas but we took it to our advantage to create something extraordinary. The house zoning is very simple to get natural light and ventilation along with the view of landscape around the house as much as possible. The house is elevated from the road about 1.5m, providing flexibility for mechanical systems underneath with enough crawling space for maintenance, and also allowing the air to flow underneath the house. The ventilation through the house both living spaces and space beneath provide comfort environment for the house.Save this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholThis house is also an experiment of architectural expression through detailed design between anti-gravity and levitating concept. It is a juxtaposition concept that we would like to express to make the house more interesting. As a result of Feng Shui master advices, A 6.5m cantilevered roof (with gutters), detailed as thin as possible, is flying over to cover the entire main stairs as suggested by Feng Shui master, opposing to a large solid masonry box of master bedroom, levitating above a rock garden since we need to raise this section up from the rest of the house for Feng Shui reason.Save this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholWith constrained budget, most of the house material is inexpensive and very simple such as cement board panel, painted wall, and polished concrete. The detail design is the integrity of the house with elaborated craftsmanship and thoughts, such as grooved PVC lines on masonry walls, alignments of materials or patterns used inside and outside. All the details and efforts make the house unique and powerful by its own.Save this picture!© Chaovarith PoonpholProject gallerySee allShow lessSky Club House / DOMANISelected ProjectsGuangming Exhibition Hall of UABB / CUBE DESIGNSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/888182/ratchada-18-residence-aomo Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAOMOOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHuai KhwangThailandPublished on February 06, 2018Cite: “Ratchada 18 Residence / AOMO” 05 Feb 2018.

to go further August 1, 2018 – Updated on August 2, 2018 The Hong Kong Journalists Association denounces new fall in press freedom Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists News June 7, 2021 Find out more ChinaHong KongAsia – Pacific Reports and statistics Freedom of expression ChinaHong KongAsia – Pacific Reports and statistics Freedom of expression News Help by sharing this information News In its annual report published on July 29, the Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA) denounces a new fall in press freedom and places the responsibility on Beijing and pro-Chinese factions. In a report published in 2016, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) also described the physical, economic and judicial pressures journalists face in the Chinese special administrative region.”This new report reflects that, despite the hard work of many media outlets, the situation of journalists in Hong Kong has never been at a more precarious state,” said Cédric Alviani, director of RSF East Asia bureau. “RSF calls on Beijing to put an end to these insidious attempts that curtail Hong Kong’s press freedom.”HKJA condemns the rise of censorship and self-censorship. Journalist Shirley Yam resigned from the South China Morning Post (SCMP) after one of her articles, which alleged a connection between a Singaporean businessman and the Chinese Communist Party, was removed. Additionally, news website HK01 rewrote and edited entire sentences of a British archive document about the Tiananmen massacre.HKJA is also concerned about the complacency shown by some Hong Kong media towards Chinese propaganda, such as the SCMP which took part in early 2018 in a staged interview with editor Gui Minhai who is arbitrarily detained for three years by China.Freedom of the press in Hong Kong has been in free fall since Hong Kong was handed over to China in 1997. Originally in 18th place when the RSF World Press Freedom Index was created in 2002, the former British colony is ranked 70th out of 180 in 2018.

News RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Sumon, according to his uncle, linked his arrest to his participation in several demonstrations by media workers protesting the absence of progress in the investigation of the double murder of Sagar Sarowar and Meherun Runi, husband-and-wife journalists who were killed on 11 February.In another disturbing development, correspondent Ayaz Azad of the daily Dainik Jaijaidin was attacked on 14 July by machete-wielding students of the Chhatra League (student branch of the ruling Bangladesh Awami League) on the campus of Islamic University in the Kushtia district of southwest Bangladesh. The journalist was hospitalized for injuries to his shoulders.Bangladesh ranked 129th out of 179 countries on the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Organisation July 18, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern for journalist illegally arrested and beaten May 19, 2021 Find out more February 22, 2021 Find out more Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the illegal detention and serious mistreatment of Mutafizur Rahman Sumon of the news site justnewsbd.com, who remains behind bars.Sumon, 28, was arrested on 13 July in Dhaka. He must be freed immediately and be given medical attention for injuries suffered at the hands of authorities, the press freedom organization said. “We demand that the government investigate the arrest and mistreatment by security forces,” Reporters Without Borders added. “These actions cannot go unpunished.”The arrest was prompted by Sumon’s campaign against impunity for crimes against media workers, the organization said, in declaring its support for the campaign.Sumon was leaving a computer store when officers in civilian clothes from the Detective Branch of the Bangladesh Police forced him into their vehicle.According to the Crime Reporters Association of Bangladesh and members of Sumon’s family, the police, commanded by Inspector Motlab Hossain and Assistant Commissioner Tauhidul Islam took Sumon to a secret location. He was held there for three days, during which time he was beaten, threatened, and deprived of food and sleep.Sumon was prevented from contacting his family and a lawyer. After he refused to pay 50,000 taka (5,000 euros) that police demanded for his freedom, he was transferred on 15 July to the Darus Salam police station, on the capital city’s west side, on a false charge of computer theft. The following day, he was transferred to the Dhaka main prison by a judge who rejected an official request for continued police custody.Colleagues and relatives who have visited Sumon in prison are gravely concerned for his health.

Her deputy, Chung Yu-yuan, was also suspended. Feng’s replacement, Chen Sheng Fu, said her departure was necessary because of recurring disputes between part of the board, PTS employees and the government over proposed reforms.Reporters Without Borders believes that a democratic government should take pride in defending the state-owned media’s independence. Protecting their independence is essential in order to guarantee a really democratic political system, one that allows all political parties and all sectors of society to make their voices heard.A government that respects the rules of democracy gets its strength from guaranteeing the editorial freedom of the public radio and TV stations, thereby accepting that it will sometimes be criticised by state-sector journalists. Many governments in democratic countries are tempted to put their supporters in charge of the public media in order to influence news content, as we have recently seen in France, Italy and South Korea.But this temptation is contrary to the spirit of fairness and to the need for a fourth estate that offers independent news coverage. After all, the state-owned media are a public service that is paid for by the taxpayer. They are not the media mouthpieces of the president or ruling party. They are media that are there to serve the public.It is disturbing to see the power struggle at the head of PTS being won by the supporters of the ruling Kuomintang party. So far there is no evidence that the change in leadership is affecting PTS’s news coverage but we will be watching very carefully for signs that it is. We urge President Ma Ying-jeou to ensure that PTS’s editorial independence continues to be guaranteed. After Reporters Without Borders voiced concern about this issue in 2008, the authorities assured us that the independence of the state-owned media was a priority for them.At a news conference on 28 September in Taipei, Feng described her dismissal as illegal and voiced concern about the current government’s growing influence over the media. She also accused the Government Information Office (GIO) of interfering in coverage of certain events.In response to a request to the Taiwanese authorities for an explanation, Reporters Without Borders received a written reply from the GIO. This is an extract:“The Government Information Office states that the spirit of the Public Television Act is to protect the neutrality and objectivity of the media, and that the purpose of its provisions is to reduce government intervention to the minimum by respecting the independence of its board. Respecting the principles of the Public Television Act, the GIO never strayed from its position of respect for its spirit of independence and autonomy. It never intervened in matters of personnel, programme choice or programme content. Ms. Feng’s statements are at variance with reality.”

Holcomb, House Speaker Bosma, and Rep. Soliday celebrate following the governor’s signing of HEA 1002, the state’s transportation funding bill. INDIANAPOLIS – Governor Eric J. Holcomb, joined by House Speaker Brian Bosma, Senate President Pro Tem David Long and other lawmakers, today signed into law a balanced budget and historic infrastructure funding.“Indiana lawmakers passed an infrastructure plan of historic proportions, putting our state in a strong position to finish what we started, maintain what we have and build for future growth. We did this all while maintaining a balanced budget and responsible reserves that will continue to diversify and grow our economy,” Gov. Holcomb said. “This achievement is marked by the spirit of collaboration that made this session a tremendous success for Hoosiers.”The biennial budget (House Enrolled Act 1001) and state’s transportation funding plan (House Enrolled Act 1002) gained final legislative approval late last week.“Today marks a monumental achievement for our state. Not only have we enacted another honestly balanced budget funding our key priorities, we have enacted an historic road funding plan for the next generation, cementing Indiana’s reputation as the Crossroads of America,” Speaker of the House Brian Bosma said. “Our long term road funding plan is comprehensive and sustainable, does not saddle our children with debt, and answers the call to direct all fees paid at the pump to roads. Unlike other states and Washington, D.C., we worked from a strong fiscal foundation to build consensus, support pro-growth policies and keep Indiana moving in the right direction.”The state budget funds several priorities outlined in Gov. Holcomb’s Next Level legislative agenda in January, including incentives to increase the amount of venture capital in the state, regional economic development, pre-K expansion, double tracking the South Shore Line in northwest Indiana, pay increases for law enforcement officers and more.HEA 1002 provides long-term funding to maintain state and local roads while finishing projects we have started and delivering the tools to invest in our future.“These bills work together to position Indiana for continued growth and prosperity,” Indiana Senate President Pro Tem David Long said. “Responsible fiscal management has been the foundation of our pro-growth economic environment for over a decade and this budget bill continues to advance those principles. When you combine that with a sustainable plan to fund our transportation infrastructure needs for the next 20 years, I think Indiana is continuing to send a message that we are a great place to live and do business.”Visit the 2017 Bill Watch webpage to view these and other bills the governor has signed into law.Photo 1: (Left to Right) Sen.
