The week in pictures: September 23-29, 2014

The week of September 23-29 was full of events and news, some quite unexpected. From tech and science to art of all sorts, the past week delivered plenty of news and mostly good.

So, let’s starts with the good news first. Paris Fashion Week took place and it was, as always, extravagant: extravagant models, extravagant designers. Speaking of which, ex Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham had a speech at the UN at the same time her new fashion shop opened in London. A new social network, “Ello”, popped-up and apparently wants to be serious competition for Facebook. India has put a satellite on orbit around Mars and they are the first country in Asia that managed to do that on first attempt. For the first time a woman played prince Hamlet of Denmark in Manchester and congratulations are in order for actor George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin since they are now husband and wife.
On a not so happy side of the rainbow, The Shellshock bug made us change passwords again and iPhone 6 has an… unexpected bendable headcase.

Good and bad news for gambling too, I guess, but you can check that yourselves, in the pics below.

1.They keep saying that gambling is an art… The owner of the Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania reinforces the saying by planning to build a casino on the island.

2. Poker player Achilleas Kallakis thought he can play bankers as well but the game isn’t over and he’s looking at another seven years in jail unless he returns GBP 3 million within six months.

3. Steve Wynn won the licence for building a casino in the Boston area and started rubbing his victory in competition’s face because that’s just what some winners do.

4. All week-long, football fans and punters checked the odds for matches taking place on Wednesday in Champions League. Online bookmakers are waiting you to place your bets.

5. UK bookies had their share of problems in 2014. But sunnier days have to arrive because as long as there is Britons and football, there will be UK betting.

6. A drug smuggler was finally captured and the, now safer, world owes it all to poker. Robert Knight, one of UK’s most-wanted couldn’t stay away from the game and police just had to exploit his weak spot.

7. Campaign managers most definitely should start visiting online betting sites more often because, apparently, political oddsmakers are the best sources for predictions on the 2016 Presidential Election.
