Italy to increase VLT and AWP taxes

first_img Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Slots Casino & games Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Tags: Slot Machines 22nd October 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Italian government has announced an increase in the taxes on video lottery terminals (VLTs) and Comma 6A Amusement with Prize slot machines. Italy to increase VLT and AWP taxes The Italian government has announced an increase in the taxes on video lottery terminals (VLTs) and Amusement with Prizes (AWP) machines.The tax rate on VLTs will rise from 7.9% of turnover to 9%, while for AWPs, the rate will rise from 21.6% to 23%.There are currently 11 operators that are licensed to offer one or both of the affected categories, who will now face a higher tax contribution. This is the latest tax rise announced for the machines this year, which in 2018 were taxed on 5.50% of turnover (VLTs) and 17.50% for AWPs. According to Giulio Coraggio of GamingTechLaw, the move was made in order to bring the country’s budget in line with European requirements.“Unfortunately, the Italian Government is looking for money to make the budget of the country in line with the parameters required by the European Commission, and it’s unlikely that they will consider the long term negative effects of such a tax increase,” Coraggio said.Coraggio said that 150,000 workplaces could be at risk from the effects of the tax increase.The country sent its new draft budget to the European Commission for approval, with the tax hikes accompanied by new measures to aid investigation into potential criminal involvement in licensed gambling businesses, while efforts to prevent tax evasion will be stepped up.This will see operators required to sign up to an official anti-money laundering register. That decision follows Operation Galassia, the country’s largest anti-money-laundering probe, in which former board members of SKS365, Italy’s second-largest online sports betting operator, were named as suspects.Italian media had also previously reported that the budget may include a gambling winnings tax, but such a provision was not included.The current proposals, however, may be liable to further change.In its response to the budget, the European Commission said the draft would lead to a decline in the country’s governmental structural balance of 0.1% rather than the recommended increase of 0.6%. In addiiton, the budget features a 1.9% growth in spending, well above the recommended 0.1%.As a result of these discrepenacies, the country may have to reduce spending and increase taxes further in order to meet the EU’s benchmarks.

Stephen Hoiles – Brumbies and Australia

first_imgStephen Hoiles training with the BrumbiesPractial joker Stephen ‘Hoilsey’ Hoiles sat down with Rugby World at the end of France 2007 so we could get to know him better. We chatted about an ongoing war of practical jokes with Shaun Berne, Ricky Gervais, Karaoke and Time Travel. RUGBY WORLD: Stirling Mortlock says that the practical joke you pulled on Shaun Berne with some photos of him in “compromising positions” is the greatest ever. Tell us more…STEPHEN HOILES: I just decided to try and get Shaun to pose for a few professional photos [Berne thought they were for Men’s Health]. We managed to get him to pose for about 120 photos in a few different outfits – in a tight vest, with his shirt unbuttoned, modelling ties and so on. We got it all on video, put a few songs in the background and showed it to the team. He wanted revenge but I said if he went too far I’d release the photos to the media.RW: So did he get revenge?SH: Yeah, he got into my lounge room one day and put a kids’ swimming pool filled with goldfish in it. There were a few palm trees around as well. I decided that was too far and released the photos!RW: Have you been part of any other practical jokes?SH: Nothing too serious. Shaun’s younger brother, Michael, and I once followed a mate of ours when he was taking his final driving test and made things difficult for him by driving into his reverse parking space from behind him and so on. He still passed, though. We also put up signs saying a friend was having a garage sale so people kept walking into his house looking for it.Hoilesy proving you can never have too much sunscreen onRW: There are quite a few photos of you around with sunscreen caked all over your face. Are you very careful?SH: I probably learnt that from Berney, too, with his Irish skin! We spend a long time in the sun so why get burnt? You can still get a nice tan wearing sunscreen.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen or heard on the pitch?SH: Bakkies Botha once said to Adam Freier, “Shut up you dwarf.” I found it quite funny that he was laid into for being vertically challenged!Bryan Adams, Back To The Future and Bubblegum…RW: Do you have a karaoke song? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS SH: Bryan Adams’s Summer of ‘69. Matt Dunning and David Lyons are the big karaoke fans in the Wallabies squad.RW: What are the best and worst headlines you’ve seen about yourself?SH: The worst was when I’d just got back into the Wallabies squad last year after missing most of 2005 with injury. I did an interview with a journalist and he was asking me about rugby league. I love to watch it, but then he asked if I’d like to go to league one day. I said, “Who knows? I’d love to think about it but I’ve just signed for two years with the Brumbies, so it’s not worth talking about now.” The headline was ‘Hoiles fancies his chances in NRL’. It wasn’t the best timing. I can’t think of the best one about myself, but the one with the Berney pics was great. It was just ‘I’m Too Sexy’.RW: Which person would you like to be stuck in a lift with?SH: Ricky Gervais would be quite good. I’m a big fan of his. I love The Office and Extras – I’m addicted to it. I’m waiting for the new Extras DVD right now.RW: If you could have one superpower what would it be?SH: Time travel would be cool. I love Back To The Future. I’d probably go back to 1985 when I was about four and got caught pinching some bubblegum. They questioned me and I denied it, but then they checked my pockets. I don’t really remember it but apparently it was pretty embarrassing for my mum. Mum and Dad kept an eye on me after that.RW: When did you last laugh?SH: Watching Adam Freier doing his impersonation of knee-boarding. I get a lot of humour out of Adam.Check out Brumbie’s Twitter page Check out this hilarious clip of Stephen playing Piggies vs Princesses…center_img Check out Stephen’s teammates at Brumbies showing off…last_img read more

UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your comment! In 2016, Florida Hospital provided $453 million in community benefit in Orange, Osceola , and Seminole counties.When faith-based care, capital investments, and other benefits are also added, Florida Hospital’s total impact in Central Florida surpassed $760 million last year.Other items detailed in the 2016 annual report:·         $165 million in charity care·         $41 million in cash and in-kind contributions·         $195 million in unpaid costs absorbed by the hospital from Medicaid reimbursement shortfalls·         192,000 unique Medicaid and uninsured patients served“Florida Hospital has been dedicated to extending the healing ministry of Christ beyond our hospital walls for over a century, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving the whole person — body, mind and spirit,” said Daryl Tol, president and CEO of Florida Hospital and the Central Florida Region – Adventist Health System. “We are honored to partner with our neighbors and support other organizations who share our commitment to making Central Florida one of the healthiest communities in the nation.”Items in the Community Benefit Report also include projects funded by the Community Health Impact Council, also known as CHIC. CHIC’s primary goal is to address the needs of targeted populations, including the underserved and uninsured, while reducing preventable medical costs and increasing the overall health of the community. The CHIC board, comprised of local business and nonprofit executives, helps determines how and to whom Florida Hospital’s funding will be allocated in the community.

This project is completed more than three months ahead of schedule and enhances safety and mobility, while reducing travel times in the heart of Florida.“Today I announced the opening of 5 new flyover ramps that compose the most impactful portion of the I-4 Ultimate Project in Central Florida 3 months ahead of schedule,” said Governor DeSantis. “The completion of this project will make a big difference for Floridians who commute through this area. Secretary Thibault has shown his commitment and dedication in completing this project expeditiously and I look forward to seeing more infrastructure projects like this finish ahead of schedule.”“In early April, Governor DeSantis challenged the Department to find ways to accelerate I-4 construction while there was less traffic on the road, and I am pleased to announce that we have opened these critical components of the I-4 corridor to drivers, three months ahead of schedule,” said FDOT Secretary Kevin J. Thibault, P.E. “This is the biggest milestone of the project to date, which will undoubtedly transform the heart of our state’s transportation system. I am grateful for the Governor’s common-sense approach to moving Florida forward during this unprecedented time.”“Today’s event marks an amazing achievement for the state as well as the Central Florida community,” said Central Florida Expressway Authority Chairman Brenda Carey. “We appreciate the continued partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation and look forward to further improving mobility throughout the region.”On April 11, Governor DeSantis and Secretary Thibault announced plans to open the I-4/S.R.408 interchange by Independence Day, which was ahead of schedule. Since then, the Department was able to further accelerate work by more than 6 weeks, opening four new I-4/S.R. 408 ramps along with the eastbound S.R. 408 ramp to westbound I-4.During the acceleration period, the I-4 Ultimate team has been working at more than 12 locations with extended lane and ramp closures and has reduced construction time by one to two months.To view all of the new interchange movements, motorists should visit the S.R. 408 Interactive Maps. When traveling throughout the corridor, always maintain a safe speed in the work zone, follow posted detour signs, and allow extra time to navigate the downtown area.The westbound S.R. 408 to westbound I-4 flyover is the final interchange and is scheduled to open later this summer.

Cornlofts Triplex Reconstruction / B² Architecture

first_imgphotographs:  Eduard HueberPhotographs:  Michal Seba, Eduard Hueber+ 20 Share Projects “COPY” CopyText description provided by the architects. Located in the Cornlofts, a former industrial building, in Prague´s quarter Karlin, reconstructed for the res­i­den­tial use based on the design of Baum­schlager Eberle Architekten from Wien. The design for a Live/ Work unit eschews conventional loft typologies in order to maximize square footage and natural light. Portions of the original floor plate is removed while new glass plates are inserted into a central void. As a result, this formal gesture increases overall square footage while simultaneously providing unexpected views and natural light throughout.Save this picture!© Michal ŠebaThe main goal of the loft´s redesign was to bring back the original industrial look balanced with the modern design and materials.Save this picture!© Michal ŠebaThe lowest level contains the entrance space with custom-made closet, owners music studio, nursery and guest room with bathroom and utility areas.Save this picture!© Michal ŠebaThe second level has a public character. On one side, there´s an open office with the roof window and view over a sculpted staircase connecting the three levels of the loft. On the other side, there´s living and enternaiting space vertically connected by partially glassed floor plate of the third level.Save this picture!© Michal ŠebaThe living space is furnished with the vintage/modern custom-made furniture completed with the pixeled piano mozaic and other music related elements refering to the owners profession.Save this picture!© Michal ŠebaBesides the entertaining space, the third level also includes the master bedroom with a bath and two dressing rooms.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFilms & Architecture: “The Fifth Element”ArticlesPratt Explores the Importance of Cold War Era Pre-Fabricated Building SystemsEventProject locationAddress:Karlin, Czech RepublicLocation to be used only as a reference.

This opens the door for novel treatment across many therapeutic areas.”EvoRx said nearly 70 percent of proteins implicated in diseases are considered “undruggable,” or inaccessible to drugs using traditional treatment approaches. The company’s Evo-Link technology seeks to address this deficiency.Dr. Maarten Kraan, head of the Respiratory, Inflammation and Autoimmune Diseases Innovative Medicines Unit at AstraZeneca, said they were able to make “very significant progress on the permeability problem” of their peptides with the collaboration with EvoRx.“Many disease targets are intractable to both small molecule and biologic therapy, limiting our options to discover new treatments for these life-threatening and debilitating diseases,” Kraan said. “Designing potent, stable, cell penetrating peptides is also one of our industry’s biggest challenges, and so we are delighted with the outcome of our collaboration with EvoRx Technologies.”AstraZeneca will continue to develop the cell-penetrating peptides after the end of the collaboration.EvoRx, with offices and laboratories at 129 N. Hill Avenue in Pasadena, is a privately held company founded in 2011 which strives to develop innovative peptide therapeutics and targeted radiopharmaceuticals for treatment and diagnosis of diseases.More information about the company and its work is available at their website, www.evorxtechnologies.com.

Stagecraft students received industry-standard training from accomplished professional lighting designer Michael Berger, thanks in part to a grant from the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts.Michael Berger, a graduate from the School of Drama at Carnegie Mellon University, has built a stellar reputation in the field of theater and live-event lighting production. Mike has served as Lighting Director for broadcast award shows including The Academy Awards, The GRAMMYS, The Tony Awards, The Kennedy Center Honors, and the American Music Awards. Mike can also be found behind tech tables and consoles in theme park endeavors such as Hersheypark in Pennsylvania.Mike worked with Arcadia High School stagecraft students who have chosen lighting as their focus. He provided in-depth, hands-on training in the design process, including creating a lighting plan for the entire show, hanging and focusing lights, and programming the lighting for each scene using a computerized light board. The training will culminate in the students running the entire lighting for Thoroughly Modern Millie with Mike providing oversight and guidance during each of the three performances, March 17, 18 and 19.Arcadia High School’s Stagecraft Program enriches students’ lives with an abundance of skills. The training they have received from professional lighting designer Michael Berger may serve to inspire them to consider the performing arts not only as a life enriching opportunity, but possibly as a career. This high level of lighting design will also dramatically enhance enjoyment by the community and families in the Arcadia area attending Thoroughly Modern Millie at the Arcadia Performing Arts Center.
