Buckley will take on the full-time position at the B2B and white label gaming software and services provider from December 3 after spending eight years with Inspired Entertainment. She most recently served as vice-president of the Inspired interactive division, which she set up and ran for the last three years with double digit year-on-year growth. Shaw has been interim chief executive at Nektan since Leigh Nissim resigned from the position in June 2017. He will step down from the role but remain an executive director with the company. Speaking about the new appointment, Shaw said: “Lucy’s extensive international gaming experience is an excellent fit for the role as Nektan’s CEO. “Lucy will help to build on our most recent successes, as we continue to win new contracts and deliver additional revenue streams. I will remain very much involved in the business both as a shareholder and as an executive director.” The appointment comes after Nektan earlier this month revealed that it is in the process of considering offers to invest in its US business, having highlighted a “pipeline of opportunities” in the post-PASPA era in the country. The company posted a 64.6% year-on-year increase in net revenue for the first quarter of the 2019 financial year. This amount climbed to a record £6.4m (€7.3m/$8.4m) in the period. Buckley said: “Nektan’s player-focused technology and services have been proven in the European casino market, and the company is making significant headway into new B2B revenue streams and additional markets.“I look forward to working with the team to accelerate the next phase of growth, making Nektan a global leader in online and mobile gaming innovation.”center_img People Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 9th October 2018 | By contenteditor Email Addresslast_img read more

Call for hope and an open mind one month after Aubenas and Hanoun went missing

first_imgNews News IraqMiddle East – North Africa “No hypothesis can be ruled out, even if a kidnapping with no political motive seems the most likely scenario at the moment. Everything must be done to quickly obtain evidence that Libération’s correspondent and her interpreter are still alive,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We must keep on hoping,” Reporters Without Borders said today, one month after French reporter Florence Aubenas of the daily newspaper Libération and her Iraqi assistant Hussein Hanoun Al-Saadi went missing in Baghdad.”Everything is possible and no hypothesis can be ruled out, even if a kidnapping with no political motive seems the most likely scenario at the moment,” the press freedom organization said. “Everything must be done to quickly obtain evidence that they are still alive.”Recent statements by the French authorities were “cautious but reassuring,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are also relieved by statements by French political leaders stressing the importance of the presence of journalists in Iraq. This shows that the press’s vital role has not been forgotten.”Action in support of Florence Aubenas and Hussein Hanoun “must continue,” Reporters Without Borders stressed.”More demonstrations are already planned by Reporters Without Borders and Libération. Spots produced by the Folamour agency (available at www.rsf.org/espace_presse.php3) will be broadcast on French and Arabic-language TV and radio stations, and posters of Aubenas and Hanoun will be put up in the Parisian Metrobus network from 7 to 14 February,” the organization added.A veteran war reporter, Aubenas, 46, has been covering conflicts in Rwanda, Kosovo, Algeria and Afghanistan for Libération since 1986. She and Hanoun, her Iraqi interpreter and assistant, have not been seen since they left the Hotel Mansour in Baghdad on the morning of 5 January. Aubenas arrived in Baghdad on 16 December.Iraq continues to be the most dangerous country in the world for journalists. At least 31 have been killed and 15 kidnapped since the start of the war in March 2003.

Sunken Royal Navy submarine HMS Narwhal found after 77 years

first_img View post tag: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Sunken Royal Navy submarine HMS Narwhal found after 77 years The wreck of what is believed to be the Royal Navy’s WWII submarine HMS Narwhal has recently been found by hydrographers off the coast of Scotland.HMS Narwhal was last seen in late July 1940 when she left her base to lay mines off German-occupied Norway during the Battle of Britain.Sitting upright on the seabed about 300ft down around 150 miles east of Edinburgh, she was discovered by Polish deep-sea explorers who were looking to solve one of their own maritime mysteries.In 1939 the submarine ORP Orzeł escaped the German invasion of Poland and internment in Estonia and fled to the UK.She conducted half a dozen patrols – including taking part in the Norwegian campaign – before disappearing on her seventh tour of duty in late May/early June 1940.The Poles have spent the past decade trying to locate the wreck of the Orzeł (Eagle), this year using hydrographic vessel Mewo Navigator to follow the likely route the missing submarine took back to base in Blyth.Over ten days, the ship scanned 900 square kilometres of seabed – five times the size of Tyneside – but found no trace of its intended target.It did, however, locate four wrecks, one 88 metres long and seven wide. Based on its dimensions and official British and German records, the Find the Orzeł team believe they have discovered HMS Narwhal after 77 years.Narwhal left the submarine base at Blyth on July 22 bound for Kristiansund.The German Navy had broken some of the Royal Navy’s codes, knew the likely route Narwhal would take across the sea and dispatched the Luftwaffe to intercept.On the afternoon of July 23, the fates of bomber and submarine collided as Lieutenant Bernhard Müller’s Dornier attacked and sank the Narwhal, which took her skipper Lt Cdr Ronald Burch and 58 crew to a watery grave.Although disappointed at failing to locate their chief target, the Polish research team have vowed to continue the search for the Orzeł – and to track down relatives of the Narwhal’s crew to provide them with more details of the submarine’s loss.“It was assumed that Narwhal was sunk in the vicinity of the Norwegian coast during its mission,” said expedition leader Tomasz Stachura.“Study archival documents and the technical specifications of the submarine operating at the time which could have been sunk in this stretch of water, it is highly likely to be HMS Narwhal.”Bomb damage to the boat’s hull – between the conning tower and stern – matches the description in the German bomber crew’s combat report.
