AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Appointments include new COO and executive vice-president Veikkaus has made a series of changes to its executive team in order to pursue digital growth, following a decline in revenue in Q2. The company said that although the move will not lead to personnel reductions, the initiative forms part of a wider revision of its organisation. Nora Vähävirta will take on the role of chief operating officer, while Velipekka Nummikoski will become executive vice-president. Elsewhere, Ari Aarnihuhta has been named as senior vice-president of ICT and sales, while Timo Kiiskinen will move into the position of senior vice-president of business operations and Pekka Ilmivalta senior vice-president of legal affairs and governance. In addition, Veikkaus has bought in two new members of staff to take on senior roles at the company. Jari Heino will join as senior vice-president of channels and sales on October 1, following a spell as European distribution director at Canon, while Heli Lallukka will step down as country HR operations manager at IKEA to become senior vice-president of HR at Veikkaus. Olli Sarekoski (pictured), chief executive and president of Veikkaus, will lead the new-look executive team. The changes, with the exception of the two new additions to Veikkaus, come into effect from September 1.Sarekoski said: “By revising our organisation, we are preparing, for our part, for the changes in our operating environment, for the rapidly increasing international competition, and for success in digital business.” Confirmation of the changes come after Veikkaus last week posted disappointing financial results for the second quarter, due in part to more competition across digital channels and improved gaming restriction controls. Turnover fell by 0.3% to €1.5872bn (£1.318bn/$1.429bn), but profit was up by 2.5% to €505.5m. Veikkaus noted that 42.9% of sales were generated by digital channels, which is relatively flat in comparison with the 42% reported for 2017 – the first full year after Veikkaus completed a three-way merger with Fintoto and Finland’s Slot Machine Association. The company is now looking to strengthen its digital arm as it goes in search of financial growth in the second half and beyond.

It simply objects to the investment of ??? millions of dollars for the recreation of an example of the Episcopal Church style. In stead of bricks and mortar the argument supposes donations to the “historic correctness” of the beauty of the institution that the funds be invested in agriculture, industrial and small business capital for the growing of the economy and culture. The church is not the building … it is the service to the people that the church provides that sets it aside from the ordinary. That service illustrates the presence of God’s salvation here and now. Feed the hungry, treat the sick and relive the oppression of poverty and ignorance–than the people of Haiti will understand through participation the meaning of the Kingdom of God.

An extensive number of private and public buildings were destroyed including Holy Trinity Cathedral and the affiliated Episcopal institutions in the Cathedral Complex in Port-au-Prince.The Project Team made its recommendation following a yearlong strategic process. The members of the project team are diocese of Haiti officials: Bishop Jean Zaché Duracin; Sikhumbuzo Vundla, chief of operations; the Rev. Joseph Constant, special coordinator; and the Rev. John Runkle, RA, consulting project manager.“Faced with the enormity of rebuilding most of its churches, schools and other structures throughout the earthquake ravaged region, the Diocese of Haiti decided to concentrate its initial efforts on rebuilding Holy Trinity Cathedral as a prominent landmark of God’s abiding presence with the Haitian people and the church’s commitment to serve them,” Duracin said. “The new cathedral will be a beacon of hope to all who suffer.”“The project team agreed Kerns Group is the architectural firm that will best embody the vision for a new Cathedral that reflects the history and culture of the Haitian people,” said Constant. “Kerns Group bring years of extensive experience designing new churches, including a number of notable Episcopal Churches, throughout much of the United States. And with the Episcopal Church, they also share a profound sense of mission to the people of Haiti that will result in a cathedral unique to the church there.”“This marks an important milestone in the effort to rebuild our church in Haiti,” said Bishop Stacy Sauls, Episcopal Church chief operating officer. “It has come about because of the hard work of many people from the Diocese of Haiti, the Church Center, and beyond. It has come about in no small part due to the generosity of thousands of Episcopalians from across our church who have given to rebuild the Holy Trinity Cathedral. I want to especially thank Albert E. Phillips and Laura Thomas of the Atlanta law firm of Cohen, Pollock, Merlin & Small for their tireless dedication and extreme generosity in getting us to this point.”The new cathedral will be designed to respect and celebrate the characteristics of the Episcopal Church in Haiti, the Haitian people and their culture. The worship space will be larger than the previous cathedral and will provide the flexibility to accommodate larger congregations. It will incorporate the three, surviving, world-renowned, painted murals, of the original 14 that adorned the interior of the destroyed cathedral. Its structure will comply with international seismic and hurricane building code standards. The building will be constructed to serve as a place of refuge in the event of future emergency situations.For more information on supporting the fundraising effort here. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL December 12, 2012 at 11:07 pm Fr. Jay has an important point, but I fear it is lost to the decision makers in Haiti. Fr. Jay has a modern approach to ministry – focused on the mission to the people and not on appearance. But the church in Haiti, in my experience, is focused on medieval methods of evangelism, where the building of a large church was enough to bring the populace into the fold. Haitians are well aware of “bondie” but not of His word or teachings. What brings them in is attention to their needs – food, education, health care, etc.. It amazes me that the American church has gotten behind the plan put forward by the Haitian church when they well understand what really works. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Comments (6) Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN Curate Diocese of Nebraska May 26, 2014 at 10:57 pm To everything there is a season:A time to build a cathedral and a time to build homes and businesses;A time for the Christian community to gather for worship, sacrament, learning, and fellowship, and a time for that community to go forth to serve by feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and empowering the weak to become strong;A time to lift up art and encourage artistic expression, and a time to enjoy the results as we see the myriad ways people grow intellectually and spiritually as the community blossoms in so many surprising ways..The rabbis of old times had an expression: “Where there is no wine, there is no joy.”Where there is no good architecture, no profound storytelling, no drawing or painting, no good music, no drama, no good design, you have no imagination, no creative problem solving, no three dimensional understanding of new learning, and no powerful spirituality.It is not a question of either/or but of both/and. A great cathedral facility under responsible leadership will not detract from ministry but become the Lord’s instrument to energize and continually enhance it. It is not of secondary importance in the scheme of things, it is primary. Rector Shreveport, LA Thomas R.

Located outside of Mumbai on the Arabian Sea, Palmyra House was built as a refuge from the bustle of the busy city. The 3000 sq ft. house consists of two wooden louvered structures set inside of a functioning coconut plantation. Anchored to stone platforms, the structures overlook a network of wells and aqueducts that weave the site into an inhabitable whole. Living room, study and master bedroom are contained in the north volume, while the south volume contains the kitchen, dining, and guest bedrooms. Set in the plaza between the buildings, the pool provides a channel for swimming, with expansive views of the sea to the west and views into a dense foliage of palms to the east.

The extensive louvres were handcrafted from the outer part of the palmyra trunk (a local palm species). Exteriors are detailed with hand-worked copper flashing and standing seam aluminum roofs; interior surfaces are finished with teakwood and India Patent Stone, a refined pigmented plaster.

At a short rally before the march to Oakland’s city jail, Janetta Johnson, representing the Trans GenderVariant Intersex Justice Project, stated, “Transgender prisoners are placed in the SHU based on the fact that they are transgender. It’s punitive.” The solidarity activists then marched down to the jail chanting, “Close the jails! Free them all! Tear down the prison walls!”Hundreds of prisoners remain on hunger strike and work stoppage to protest unfair lockdown and isolation policies that keep many in indefinite isolation. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and Gov. Jerry Brown continue to ignore the dire conditions faced by SHU prisoners, but support is growing nationally to support their demands. Most recently Amnesty International and the California Conference of Catholic Bishops have spoken out against the inhumane condition of long-term isolation. Some Bay Area state legislators are calling for public hearings on the prisoners’ demands.For more information, visit prisonerhungerstrikesolidarity.wordpress.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
