Malaysian police arrest 247 members of Chinese gambling ring

first_img Regions: Asia China Malaysia Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Malaysian police arrest 247 members of Chinese gambling ring Malaysian police have arrested 247 people since 25 September in connection with illegal China-facing online gambling operations that authorities say took in RM24.8 (£4.8m/€5.4m/$5.9m) per month, seizing RM 3.12bn worth of assets.The move is the latest in a series of crackdowns across Southeast Asia against online gambling operations that target Chinese customers.On 23 September, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security announced that joint efforts from police in China and Cambodia to combat illegal online gambling in both countries have led to the arrest of almost 1,000 people so far this year.On 19 September, Philippine Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III ordered the country’s Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to shut down the operations of Philippines Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) that fail or refuse to pay income tax.Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said the current syndicate was another example of an operation based offshore to evade Chinese authorities.“The actions of the syndicate from China to carry out their activities in Kuala Lumpur are to prevent Chinese authorities from tracking down their activities,” he said. “But based on public information and police intelligence, we were able to track their position despite operating from a luxury condominium equipped with a strict security system.”Lazim said that the website was marketed via WeChat, the most popular app in China.

Moselle (57) Farmhouse Renovation / Studiolada

The project was born from the owners’ desire to accommodate people who are eager to discover their green and history-charged territory. It is located on a large plot of land, in a valley that once formed the Maginot Aquatic Line (a defensive system that allowed the valley to be flooded in order to block enemies). Five ponds remain to this day, where French and German fishermen fish side by side in amongst numerous bunkers. Above all, It is about a very large garden that the owner shapes in the manner of Gilles Clément. It is composed of a stream, an arboretum, an orchard, a pond, hedges, and grassy meadows. It is inhabited by many animal species, including birds.Save this picture!© Ludmilla CervenySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ludmilla CervenyThe farmhouse is typical of the Lorraine region with its usoir (area in front of the house), its half-timbered dwelling-house (characteristic of this part of the Moselle area) adjoining a barn, built later with plastered rock rubble. At the start of the project everything was badly damaged — mainly due to a nearby water table, but also to the inherent fragility of a somewhat poorly-built half-timber construction, barely renovated throughout its history.Save this picture!© Ludmilla CervenyQuite a few pathologies associated with poorly-designed spaces (low ceiling, mono-oriented towards the street) forced us to reconsider this construction to its core, whilst making sure we respected a principle dear to the owners. Indeed, they consider that the exterior of the house belongs to the public, whereas the interior relates to privacy and intimacy. The original village-house aspect of the project is therefore preserved for the exterior, with a few contemporary additions here and there. Inside, generous spaces bathed in light and open onto the garden reinterpret the half-timber architectural work.Save this picture!© Ludmilla CervenyProject gallerySee allShow lessMurten Church / Walser ArchitekturteamSelected ProjectsYhonnie Scarce and Edition Office Win 2019 NGV Architecture CommissionArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  277 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Moselle (57) Farmhouse Renovation / StudioladaSave this projectSaveMoselle (57) Farmhouse Renovation / Studiolada Houses “COPY” Projects “COPY” Photographs France Year:  CopyHouses•France ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Ludmilla Cerveny+ 52Curated by Paula Pintos Share Moselle (57) Farmhouse Renovation / Studiolada 2018 CopyAbout this officeStudioladaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFrancePublished on April 29, 2019Cite: “Moselle (57) Farmhouse Renovation / Studiolada” 29 Apr 2019.

Transitioning behind bars: ‘Nothing less than torture!’

first_imgBy Vanessa Lee NaishaVanessa Lee Naisha is a Black transgender woman being held in an all-male prison in Delaware. She is a subscriber to Workers World newspaper and is a member of Food Not Bombs Solidarity.Vanessa Lee NaishaMy name is Vanessa Lee Naisha. I am a 57-years-young transgender woman. I am an African American woman born April 25, 1963. I was born in Philadelphia; however, in the early years of my life I ended up in New York state.Transitioning in a male prison has been nothing less than torture! I have purposely been placed in very hostile situations by the authorities. I have had prison staff as well as prisoners degrade me verbally, and prisoners refuse to sit at a table with me in the chow hall. I basically live on an island.I am treated as if I were toxic. The common names I am called are “fag,” “homo” or “the Punk.” Prison staff have stood next to prisoners as I pass by and get laughed at.I am forced to wear facial hair, because the razors that the prison permits ruin my face and skin. Laser hair removal is readily available, but the prison would rather have me drag a razor across my face three times a week and have me damage my face and endure pain and suffering.When I was finally approved for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), the torture reached new levels. The medical provider did not prescribe the correct amounts. At first it was found that I was ingesting too little, and then it was too much. I felt like a test dummy or a lab rat. But then again, test dummies and lab rats are treated a whole lot better. As much as I am laughed at and mocked, I sometimes feel like the circus is the place where I belong.Although it is well known that I am transgender and my name is Vanessa, I am still referred to as “he” and “him.” The prison staff’s clear intent is to discourage me from being transgender.The prison staff know that if they place me in a cell with random people that it would bring about problems. Needless to say, security placed me in cells and on units with individuals who are transphobic.Violence came about and put me in a position to defend myself, and I did so effectively. Each time that I was attacked, I turned the tables, and still I was placed in isolation (the hole), and security allowed others to steal my personal property.Simply put, transitioning in a male prison has been a living hell.Illegal strip searchesNow I am on HRT, which has caused me to develop visible breasts, and still male guards are allowed to strip-search me. I have been threatened that if I do not strip, then I will be placed in the hole, where I am forced to strip. How is it that I am on HRT; I have breasts; I wear bras and panties; I am on the Transgender List, and my name is Vanessa, but a male guard may strip me, viewing my breasts and undergarments?That single action goes against everything. It is well-established throughout the federal court system that gender dysphoria is a serious psychological condition. Therefore by law I have certain rights, and I know this.The same way that male guards are not permitted to strip-search women at female facilities, it should not be permitted with me. How is it that I am seen as a woman up until the point of strip search?By prison staff knowing that I am transgender and still allowing male guards to strip-search me shows they are intentionally hostile to my gender dysphoria.Civil suit to combat transphobic terrorCurrently pending before the District Court of Delaware is a civil action that I filed against officers and prison officials.The action asserts that the officers and officials were deliberately indifferent to my gender dysphoria by allowing male guards to strip-search me. I am also challenging the constitutionality of the strip-search policy.This is not exclusively about me. My main objective is to get a policy put in place that will protect the LGBTQ2S+ prison community. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USDA Awards $15 Million in Grants to Expand Wood Products, Wood…

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Friday awarded more than $15 million to fund grant proposals to develop and expand the use of wood products, strengthen emerging wood energy markets and protect community forests. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the announcement in Colorado Friday while visiting prescribed fire and wildfire recovery areas adjacent to the Roosevelt National Forest Northern Colorado Front Range landscape.The grant funding, delivered through USDA Forest Service programs, will support 60 projects that cover a diverse range of activities from the development of affordable housing to expanding markets for mass timber, biochar, wood energy and other emerging wood products. The grants also include funds to help tribes, local governments and qualified non-profit organizations permanently conserve working forests that benefit communities.Forest Service awards will leverage an additional $30 million in matching and partner funds bringing the totals well above $45 million.“To manage wildfire and address climate, we need to manage our forests. Today’s investments underpin USDA’s commitment to address the climate crisis with a market-based approach that begins to move us toward a clean energy economy, led by production of renewable fuel and energy and biobased products grown and manufactured here in the U.S.,” said Vilsack. “The American Jobs Plan and USDA’s budget request for 2022 make sure the Forest Service can prioritize forest management and restoration.”“We are placing emphasis on assisting wood energy facilities in economically challenged areas to retool or add advanced technology to replace systems that are inefficient or fueled by fossil fuels.” said Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen. “The grants will also expand markets for cross-laminated timber in commercial and multi-family housing, which supports the important connection to healthy forests and manufacturing in rural communities.”Wood Innovations GrantsForest Service Wood Innovations Grant program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $8.9 million for 44 projects across 23 states and Puerto Rico. Twenty-one of the projects focus on mass timber and cross-laminated timber. These projects will support critical needs for expanding markets and species options (hemlock, ponderosa pine, white fir), improve structural performance, increase education and outreach, and promote design and construction of highly visible buildings.Seven of the projects will focus on developing affordable housing using mass timber as a major building component to support equity, economic opportunity, and climate change priorities. Additional projects focus on developing markets for emerging wood products like biochar and cellulose nanomaterials, and support installation of new wood energy systems. A complete list of Wood Innovations Grant recipients is available now on the Forest Service website.Community Wood GrantsForest Service Community Wood Grant program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $2.1 million to support six shovel-ready projects in six states. Initiated in the 2018 Farm Bill, the grant program helps to fund the costs of installing wood energy systems and building innovative wood product facilities in rural communities nationwide. Awardees will use locally sourced wood to reduce energy costs and fossil fuel use while supporting sustainable forest management.These grants also support innovative wood products manufacturing facilities that make products like building components and other products made from low-value or low-quality wood.Two of the Community Wood Grants are awarded to DCI Furniture, Inc. in New Hampshire and Arizona Log & Timber Works, LLC in Arizona. DCI Furniture will use the funds to install a new wood boiler to generate heat and electricity at a furniture plant. Arizona Log & Timber Words will use the funds to build a biochar plant, firewood kiln, and pole peeler to expand a forest products facility. A complete list of Community Wood Grant recipients is available now on the Forest Service website.Community Forest GrantsForest Service Community Forest Program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $4 million to support 10 projects across nine states. The grants include financial assistance to local governments, Indian tribes, and qualified nonprofit organizations to create, expand and enhance community owned and community managed forests. Project work will help communities acquire and conserve forests that provide public access and recreational opportunities, protect vital water supplies and wildlife habitat, serve as demonstration sites for private forest landowners, and provide economic benefits from timber and non-timber products.Since 2012, the program has supported 88 community-driven projects across 25 states and territories and permanently conserved more than 24,000 acres.Visit the Forest Service website for a complete list of projects and organizations receiving grants under the Community Forests Program.USDA touches the lives of all Americans each day in so many positive ways. In the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA is transforming America’s food system with a greater focus on more resilient local and regional food production, fairer markets for all producers, ensuring access to safe, healthy and nutritious food in all communities, building new markets and streams of income for farmers and producers using climate smart food and forestry practices, making historic investments in infrastructure and clean energy capabilities in rural America, and committing to equity across the Department by removing systemic barriers and building a workforce more representative of America.

Motorola said the devices and its WAVE connectivity software helped first responders maximize the LA-RICS system and raise public safety communications to a new level.With the Rose Parade demonstration, Motorola and its partner public safety agencies were able to prove that LA-RICS can be an essential element during large public events, where crowds could overwhelm commercial broadband networks.Motorola Solutions also used other applications during the parade including Compasscom Converged Services, which enhanced situational awareness capabilities by displaying the location of other public safety users on a map on the LEX L10 devices and at the command post.Motorola Solutions’ VML 750 broadband modems also streamed video wirelessly from vehicles and from fixed cameras back to command centers and broadband devices on the public safety network.

Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Introduces Highly Efficient Cell Culture Bags for T Cell Expansion

first_img WhatsApp Local NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – April 6, 2021 Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Introduces Highly Efficient Cell Culture Bags for T Cell Expansion Pinterest Pinterest TAGS  Twittercenter_img Previous articleZendesk To Present At Upcoming Investor ConferencesNext articleBookTrib Bites: Fun and Informative for Your Reading Delight Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Facebook GAITHERSBURG, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– Saint-Gobain Life Sciences, an industry leader in material science-based solutions for cell and gene therapy manufacturing, today launched a new cell culture bag designed specifically for T cell derived therapies. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: VueLife® “HP” Series Bag cell culture testing in Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Laboratory. (Photo: Business Wire) T cell based therapies are revolutionizing the approach to treating cancer. Harnessing the patient’s own immune system by isolating their T cells and engineering them to elicit an immune response is emerging as a preferred manufacturing practice. As the industry continues the advancement of these therapies, process efficiency becomes paramount to the success of delivering affordable therapies to patients. Building upon the VueLife ® family of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) based cell culture bags, VueLife ® “HP” (high permeability) incorporates an innovative, patented laminate film layer that allows increased CO 2 and O 2 exchange versus other monolayer bag designs, yet maintains the scalability and process flexibility offered by a closed bag system. The increased permeability associated with the “HP” laminate layer was specifically designed for culturing cells requiring higher rates of respiration, such as T cells. “The development of this product was in direct response to the market need for a cost effective culture vessel that provides efficient cell expansion in a scalable, closed system,” said Benjamin Le Quere, General Manager for the Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Bioprocess Solutions business unit. “VueLife ® “HP” is an exciting result of the marrying of our expertise in material science with our knowledge in cell culture.” The entire family of VueLife ® cell culture bags utilize a common FEP fluid-contact layer. FEP creates an ideal environment for cell growth due to its gas permeability and liquid impermeability, while being biologically and chemically inert.
