Tags: Churchill Downs Topics: Finance Net profit rockets 191.9% at CDI after online betting growth in Q3 However, gaming did not enjoy such a strong quarter, with revenue falling 24.5% to $134.9m. CDI put this down to Covid-19 restrictions at its land-based casinos. Regions: US Net revenue in the three months to September 30 amounted to $337.8m (£259.7m/€287.9m), up from $306.8m in the corresponding quarter last year. Read the full story on iGB North America. Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has reported a 10.3% year-on-year increase in net revenue in the third quarter, as growth within its online betting business also helped drive net profit up 191.9% during the period. Both Churchill Downs’ and the online wagering growth was down to the rescheduling of the Kentucky Derby, which was moved from its traditional date in May to August, as a result of restrictions related to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. CDI much of this growth was down to the success of its online wagering division, where revenue increased 79.6%. This was driven by its TwinSpires advance deposit wagering operations, with revenue reaching $54.1m after its handle jumped 68.8% to $253.7m. Finance The operator also saw growth from its Churchill Downs racetrack, with revenue rising 108.0% year-on-year to $68.0m. 29th October 2020 | By Robert Fletcher AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Calder Casino in Miami, Florida, was forced to temporarily close between July 2 and August 31, while its Oxford Casino in Maine, Presque Isle and Lady Luck sites in Pennsylvania, Ocean Downs in Maryland and Harlow’s in Refuge, Mississippi, all had to operate with reduced capacity.
Philippe Saint-André hasn’t been given much credit during his four years in charge of France but on one matter he deserves nothing but praise.He has brought Freddie Michalak back into the fold, rehabilitating the Toulon fly-half after his predecessor, Marc Lievremont, cast him into the international wilderness. Lievremont was not one of France’s more imaginative coaches; in fact he was downright dull, which, allied to his appalling communication skills, made for a man who was never going to be able to handle a maverick like Michalak. Not that he is alone in that regard. Guy Noves, Michalak’s coach for many years at Toulouse, was another whose inflexible outlook on life struggled to accommodate a player outside the norm.Double act: Philippe Saint-Andre and his fly-half Freddie Michalak. Photo: Getty ImagesEven the broad-minded Bernard Laporte has what Midi Olympique described recently as a “love-hate relationship” with Michalak. The pair came to metaphorical blows most recently in April, after Laporte had substituted his fly-half early in the second half of the Champions Cup semi-final against Leinster. It was a brave call by Bernie, and a correct one, as Michalak was in meltdown and needed replacing.Six months on and the Frenchman is on fire. He orchestrated France’s 41-18 World Cup win over Canada last week, kicking 14 points and creating a sumptuous try for Wesley Fofana with a delicious break and offload. When Freddie plays well so does Fofana, because the Clermont centre thrives on the shoulder of a fly-half who lives close to the gain-line. Of course, all fly-halves are crucial to how their team plays but none more so than Michalak. It’s his body language, more than anything, that’s an electrical charge of emotion: positive and it energises team-mates, negative and it enervates.Possibly no French player other than Louis Picamoles has benefited from the summer training camp as much as Michalak. He’s fit, he’s focused and above all he’s got the full support of his coach. Because Freddie needs to feel loved, it’s what gives him the confidence to express himself. He needs to know that if he does make a mistake in attempting something audacious he’s not going to have a coach on his case, carping, criticising, and eroding that fragile confidence.On target: Freddie Michalak practises his goalkicking. Photo: Getty ImagesPSA has always known the softly-softly approach works best with Michalak. One of his first acts on taking up his appointment as France coach was to dial up a player who had last started a Test in October 2007. “When I called him in 2012 to see if he was still interested in playing for les Bleus, I understood immediately from the tone of his voice that he was,” he explained.Michalak rewarded PSA’s faith with a sublime performance against Australia in November 2012, scoring 15 points as France crushed Australia 33-6 for their first win in seven years against the Wallabies. Michalak struggled to kick on from that display, partly because of injury but also because even when fit Michalak was Toulon’s second-choice fly-half behind Jonny Wilkinson. PSA could only look on in frustration, aware that he was to some extent to blame having signed the Englishman during his time in charge of the Cote d’Azur club. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Break time: Freddie Michalak bursts clear during France’s win over Canada. Photo: Getty Images TAGS: Highlight But Michalak, who turns 33 next week, has learnt much from Wilkinson, a player with less natural talent than the Frenchman but with a work ethic second to none. In Monday’s Midi Olympique, Michalak’s team-mate and friend Yannick Nyanga explained the positive effect Wilkinson has had on the French fly-half.“Undeniably being around him (Wilkinson) has had an influence on his goalkicking,” said Nyanga. “Working on a daily basis with him has altered his approach to this part of his game. He’s been inspired by his methods, the extra sessions, where he worked alone for hours on end.”Good mates: Freddie Michalak and Yannick Nyanga. Photo: Getty ImagesMichalak has also grown up. Hailed as the golden child of French rugby when he made his Test debut in 2001, a month after his 19th birthday, he sought neither fame nor fortune but was burdened by both. In the end the glare of the spotlight became too much and he fled France for South Africa, enjoying two stints with the Sharks. When he came home in 2012 after the second spell, he did so at the behest of PSA, the World Cup in both their sights. “I’ve returned to France to win it,” declared Michalak.There remains in Freddie the magician’s touch, but there’s also now a maturity. “He’s lost the boyish carelessness,” said Yannick Bru, France’s forwards coach, last week. “He is a lot more professional, influenced by the great players with whom he’s mixed. With his understanding and feeling for the game, he’s really helped us.” The reasons why France fly-half Freddie Michalak has rediscovered his best during this World Cup Or as Freddie’s great friend, Yannick Nyanga, put it: “Like a good wine, he improves with age.”For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.

Between 1841 and 1845, 16 forts were built around the city. One after the other, they lost their military status. Among these military wastelands, the Issy-les-Moulineauxfort, known today as the “Digital fort”, an eco-district project carried out notably by Bouygues Immobilier. This grouping gathers 18 blocks of residential flats, a day nursery and two school complexes. Concerning leisure, the curtains have been recycled into two-kilometre-long fitness trails; a swimming pool and a bowling pitch have also been created. If the programme has somehow been thought as a garden of Eden, the developers have meant to give digital touch with a systematic optical fibre cabling of the buildings and home automation.An ellipse to fill inSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanWithin this multi-authors programme, the building lies within a wider urban project with various authors. The general plan of the fort and of thus the shape of the blocks was designed by the French team of Architecture Studio which won the 2000 competition. Guerin & Pedroza chose to respect that shape while giving it a strong identity. The seven-storey building has 74 flats —from studio to five-bedroom— arranged along central corridors. The bigger ones are duplexes. Save this picture!© Paul KozlowskiThe situation of the villa in the northern part of the fort, along a north/south axis, offers a special view on the east of Paris and opens widely to the south on orchard. Each flat is made specific by hollowing out or filling in the façades. Thus, the orientations either follow the original geometry of the building or that of new the openings. A precious and useful touchSave this picture!Master Plan VillaA series of polymorphous inclusions make the regularity of the general plan more dynamic. A bright golden cladding adds value to those spaces carved into the white volume. It stages the balconies, loggias and terraces where the inhabitants will enjoy the outer living areas. At sunrise and sunset, lights and reflections will be enhanced for the pleasure of the users.About environment Save this picture!© Paul KozlowskiFour hectares out of twelve are dedicated to green spaces and most notably an orchard that counts 350 trees spread around the villas. Concerning sustainable development, two 700-metre-deep geothermal wells have been set and cover 78% of the production of hot water and heating needed for the whole fort. A pneumatic waste collection system gathers all the rubbish into two spots at the entrance of the fort, thus avoiding trucks within the site. Besides, all the flats located on the ground floor enjoy a private garden.Project gallerySee allShow lessSeatoun Heights House / Parsonson ArchitectsSelected ProjectsTower Apartment / Agence SMLSelected Projects Share Architects: Guerin & Pedroza Architectes Area Area of this architecture project France CopyAbout this officeGuerin & Pedroza ArchitectesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsUrbanismUrban PlanningResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsIssy-les-MoulineauxHousingFrancePublished on February 22, 2014Cite: “Villa V2 / Guerin & Pedroza Architectes” 21 Feb 2014.

These are then made available as unsecured loans to charities and social enterprises, offering an alternative to traditional funding sources, or sources that have diminished. When the organisations repay the loan, the money is recycled again until it is returned to the supporter’s CAF Charitable Trust.Charities Aid Foundation believes that such social investment funds are likely to grow significantly in the next few years precisely because they offer another source of funding amid the ongoing difficult economic conditions.First beneficiaries of CAF Social Impact FundBeneficiaries of the Fund in its first year include:Village Water is a charity providing hygiene and sustainable water to rural villages in Zambia. A £50,000 CAF loan has enabled 20,000 people to gain access to clean water.Midi Music Company offers music lessons, industry recognised courses, and music career advice to 2,500 children and young adults. The small charity needed a £36,000 loan to continue its work while waiting on the sale of some land. CAF Social Impact Fund was able to help after its local bank said no to a loan.International development charity iDE UK supports rural farmers in Africa to increase their annual incomes through the use of micro irrigation technology. The £160,000 loan from CAF will help 6,600 farming families to increase annual incomes through the irrigated farms project.Stephanie Sturrock, Director of Social Investment at the Charities Aid Foundation, said: “Lack of appropriate funding is a major barrier to charities. In this economic climate, few charities have sufficient reserves to fund their activities in advance of promised funds and few have assets which can be used as security for commercial loans…“The first year of our Social Impact Fund has shown how it can transform the work of charities by helping them expand or find new long term sources of funding.“Social investment has huge potential to expand the work of charities and other organisations, and recycle money so it works harder for the causes people care about.”www.cafonline.org Advertisement

Credit: Dr. Amir Arbabi/Faraon Lab/CaltechCaltech engineers have created flat devices capable of manipulating light in ways that are very difficult or impossible to achieve with conventional optical components.The new devices are not made of glass, but rather of silicon nanopillars that are precisely arranged into a honeycomb pattern to create a “metasurface” that can control the paths and properties of passing light waves.These metasurface devices, described in a paper published online on August 31, 2015, in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, could lead to ultracompact optical systems such as advanced microscopes, displays, sensors, and cameras that can be mass-produced using the same photolithography techniques used to manufacture computer microchips.“Currently, optical systems are made one component at a time, and the components are often manually assembled,” says Andrei Faraon (BS ’04), an assistant professor of applied physics and materials science, and the study’s principal investigator. “But this new technology is very similar to the one used to print semiconductor chips onto silicon wafers, so you could conceivably manufacture millions of systems such as microscopes or cameras at a time.”Seen under a scanning electron microscope, the new metasurfaces that the team created resemble a cut forest where only the stumps remain. Each silicon stump, or pillar, has an elliptical cross section, and by carefully varying the diameters of each pillar and rotating them around their axes, the scientists were able to simultaneously manipulate the phase and polarization of passing light. Light is an electromagnetic field, and the field of single-color, or monochromatic, light oscillates at all points in space with the same frequency but varying relative delays, or phases.Manipulating this relative delay, or phase, influences the degree to which a light ray bends, which in turn influences whether an image is in or out of focus.Polarization refers to the trajectory of the oscillations of the electromagnetic field at each point in space. Manipulating the polarization of light is essential for the operation of advanced microscopes, cameras, and displays; the control of polarization also enables simple gadgets such as 3-D glasses and polarized sunglasses.“Using our metasurfaces, we have complete control of the polarization and phase of light,” says study first author Amir Arbabi, a senior researcher at Caltech. “We can take any incoming light and shape its phase and polarization profiles arbitrarily and with very high efficiency.”While the same goal can be achieved using an arrangement of multiple conventional optical components such as glass lenses, prisms, spatial light modulators, polarizers, and wave plates, these many components lead to much bulkier systems. “If you think of a modern microscope, it has multiple components that have to be carefully assembled inside,” Faraon says. “But with our platform, we can actually make each of these optical components and stack them atop one another very easily using an automated process. Each component is just a millionth of a meter thick, or less than a hundredth of the thickness of a human hair. ”In addition to being compact, a metasurface device could manipulate light in novel ways that are very hard and sometimes impossible to do using current setups. For example, the Caltech team showed that one of their metasurfaces can project one image when illuminated by a horizontally polarized beam of light, and a different image when illuminated by a vertically polarized beam. “The two images will appear overlapped under illumination with light polarized at 45 degrees,” Faraon says.In another experiment, the team was able to use a metasurface to create a beam with radial polarization, that is, a beam whose polarization is pointing toward the beam axis. Such beams have doughnut-shaped intensity profiles and have applications in superresolution microscopy, laser cutting, and particle acceleration. “You generally would need a large optical setup, consisting of multiple components, to create this effect using conventional instruments,” Arbabi says. “With our setup, we can compress all of the optical components into one device and generate these beams with higher efficiency and more purity.”The team is currently working with industrial partners to create metasurfaces for use in commercial devices such as miniature cameras and spectrometers, but a limited number have already been produced for use in optical experiments by collaborating scientists in other disciplines.In addition, the Faraon lab current is investigating ways to combine different metasurfaces to create functioning optical systems and to correct for color distortions and other optical aberrations. “Like any optical system, you get distortions,” Faraon said. “That’s why expensive cameras have multiple lenses inside. Right now, we are experimenting with stacking different metasurfaces to correct for these aberrations and achieve novel functionalities.”The paper is entitled “Dielectric metasurfaces for complete control of phase and polarization with subwavelength spatial resolution and high transmission.” In addition to Faraon and Arbabi, other Caltech coauthors include graduate student Yu Horie and Mahmood Bagheri, a microdevices engineer at JPL. The work was supported by the Caltech/JPL President’s and Director’s Fund and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Yu Horie was supported by the Department of Energy’s Energy Frontier Research Center program and a Japan Student Services Organization fellowship. The device nanofabrication was performed in the Kavli Nanoscience Institute at Caltech. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
