Former Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson painted an optimistic picture of the industry’s future in his keynote speech at ICE London, provided operators and executives were prepared to engage and compromise when it came to new controls and restrictions.Speaking at the Vox conference today (3 February) Watson told the audience that he recognised that betting is part of the UK’s national culture, which employs thousands of people and generates millions for government coffers.“Free markets, if left unfettered, can create both great wealth and great misery,” he added, however. “And the role of regulation is to ensure the former, while preventing the latter.”At a time when calls for new controls on the industry, including an overhaul of the 2005 Gambling Act, are expected to lead to widespread changes, Watson said it was important for the industry to engage with politicians and its critics.He said that the fixed odds betting terminals (FOBT) debacle, which ultimately saw the maximum stake slashed from £100 to £2, showed what the industry faced if it refused to engage with those calling for new controls of the industry.“The result of industry intransigence [when it came to FOBTs] was a much worse outcome than if it had engaged with good grace,” he said. Regulation was ultimately a quest for finding what worked, and striking a balance between those that wanted a total prohibition of the industry, and those advocating a total liberalisation – both potentially disastrous outcomes.“One delivers Peaky Blinders, one delivers Dodge City,” he added.While the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling Related Harm caused a stir with its interim report, in which it recommended a maximum £2 per spin cap on online slots, Watson said this was a case of “shaking the tree”. By setting out its initial recommendations, this gave the industry an opportunity to negotiate.Watson has called for an overhaul of the 2005 Gambling Act, which he previously described as “analogue legislation not fit for the digital age”. This, he said, was necessary to protect society’s most vulnerable from gambling related harms – something the previous legislation would struggle to do, considering it had more mentions of postal betting than online gambling.“When her Majesty signed the Gambling Act in 2005, the technological terrain was markedly different,” he explained. “It’s the perfect example of legislation marooned by technological advances.”He was “delighted” to have seen the industry take the initiative in tackling issues such advertising with the whistle-to-whistle ban, but argued that going forward, it wasn’t just down to the gambling operators to make changes.“The banks, the loan providers and credit card providers also have a role to play,” Watson explained. “It’s not all on the shoulders of the gaming industry; the tech giants, local councils can also play a part.”Ultimately, he concluded, a “bare knuckle fight to the death” similar to that over FOBTs would do no side any favours. Collaboration would be key to safeguarding the sector’s future, he said, noting that much of this could be facilitated by his former parliamentary colleague Michael Dugher, the incoming chief executive of the Betting and Gaming Council.“If we can’t forge a reasonable evidence based consensus, the result will be tougher, more draconian controls from those who believe what the industry does is morally wrong.” Email Address 3rd February 2020 | By contenteditor Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Legal & compliancelast_img read more

Archbishop Tutu endorses nomination of Palestinian prisoner for Nobel prize

admin No Comments

first_img Rector Collierville, TN June 9, 2016 at 9:11 pm Some have asked “Where is the Palestinians’ Mandela?” He is in jail – has been for a long time – and Netanyahu seems incapable of the Grace that moved de Klerk to save the nation he shared with Mandela. The Archbishop who experienced and was an instrument of that Grace in his own country understands far more clearly than most Americans the nature of the injustice Barghouti and his people struggle against and the crying need for Grace in overcoming it. Let us pray: “Lord, make me an instrument of your Grace.” Featured Jobs & Calls Joseph Bobbitt says: Tags This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Israel-Palestine June 11, 2016 at 4:01 pm I am extremely disappointed that a man who seems to uphold truth and justice – Archbishop Tutu, should wish to bestow a Nobel Prize to a well documented terrorist and murderer.We know that, due to the vast sums donated by Saudi Arabia, the truth is greatly distorted.The UN is largely financed by Muslem money, so, of course the truth is the first thing to go.The majority of terrorists these days are Muslims, responsible for the majority of death and destruction in the world, yet it is tiny Israel that gets the blame. It is about time that truth, justice and reallity overcame the money of liars and murderers. There is in reality no such country called Palestine. Nine tenths of the Middle East is inhabited by Muslims. Apart from having all the oil, what have the Muslims actually achieved apart from causing death and destruction? Even in what is supposed to be the Holy Month Of Ramadam, Muslims continue to cause indiscriminate death and destruction. The women are treated as second- class citizens with very little freedom, but I don’t hear any complaints about their treatment, but loud voices support terrorists. What a strange world we live in! Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Submit a Press Release Youth Minister Lorton, VA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Anglican Communion, [Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop Desmond Tutu has endorsed the nomination of Palestinian political prisoner, Marwan Barghouthi, for the Nobel Peace Prize.In the nomination letter sent by the Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, he said, “I decided to support this campaign alongside seven other Nobel Peace Prize laureates as a reflection of our belief that freedom was the only path to peace… I hope the Nobel Committee will take a bold decision bringing us closer to the day this holy land, charged with unique symbolic value, can stop being a living testimony of injustice and impunity, occupation and apartheid, and can finally be a beacon of freedom, hope and peace.”Tutu was a key player in the fight against apartheid in South Africa and was also the first black South African Archbishop of Cape Town and primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.In 1984, he received a Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his extraordinary contributions to help bridge the chasm between black and white Anglicans in South Africa. He was a principal mediator and conciliator in the transition to democracy there.In 1995, South African President Nelson Mandela appointed the archbishop as chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a body set up to bring to light the human rights violations that occurred under apartheid.Although his vigorous advocacy of social justice has made him a controversial figure in some quarters, today the archbishop is regarded as an elder world statesman with a major role to play in reconciliation.Tutu is a member of the International High Level Committee of the Campaign for the freedom of Marwan Barghouthi and all Palestinian prisoners. The campaign was launched from the cell of Nelson Mandela on Robben Island in October 2013, by anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Kathrada. June 11, 2016 at 1:28 am Archbishop Tutu is one of my heroes.His advisers have let him down on this issue. By ACNS staffPosted Jun 9, 2016 Vicki Gray says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Shreveport, LA June 9, 2016 at 4:44 pm I respect Archbishop Tutu generally and consider him a great man of faith and advocate for human development and reconciliation. In this case however I have to respectfully disagree. Barghouthi is no more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than I. Bad decision and ultimately not helpful. June 19, 2016 at 5:19 pm Lo and Behold–Indeed it takes Moral Courage to speak Truth to Power and the revered Archbishop Tutu (and the late President Mandela) pronouced this to the world–Marwan Bargouthi is the Outstanding leader for the Palestinians and sadly no one in the U.S. government has the moral fortitude to speak such truth as they are beholden to pro-Israel Dollars for political loyalty to Israel. Israel maintains there are no leaders in Palestine to negotiate any “peace agreement”–and we know why that any Palestinians who show any leadership are immediately arrested/jailed in Israeli prison.Thus the above Marilyne Rose et al reveal how successful political propaganda can be so generated by our U.S.government so notable in its one-sided support(w/our tax dollars) for Israel! Indeed “It is about time that truth, justice and reality overcame the money of liars and murderers(Marilyne’s phrase) and that our Episcopal Baptismal covenant be in compassionate action and witness–that we stand up and speak out for the voiceless and vulnerable in the West Bank and Gaza which is brutally occupied by Israeli defense forces, and with American settlers (Remax real estate,Ben&Jerry’s…)occupying West Bank lands designated for the Palestinians for a two-state solution. Please remember that our Dear Lord Jesus Christ, Palestinian Jew, in those birth lands of Christianity-and who is speaking out for the Christian communities there who have lived peacefully w/Muslim neighbors and for centuries w/Jewish Palestian neighbors–yes Hasbara/propaganda has dominated all thinking so that only the Muslim/Islam terrorist can be targeted for vengeance/revenge–Please review one’s history both biblical and academic and learn that this has all been generated through zionism and its early heritage/political movement(which has nothing to do with Judaism) for ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Please know that this is not as our Dear Redeemer Jesus Christ, Mohammed and Abraham in our Cradle of our Religions gave their lives for us ALL! The Holy Land is for All Peoples (not for Oil, empire/building,power and occupation of native lands…) The Episcopalian community must stop its Complicity and join other denominations in Compassionate Action and Voice for All Peoples in our World.

Les propos haineux ont été découverts tôt le matin du 13 novembre. Photo : Facebook[Episcopal News Service] Les épiscopaliens d’Indiana et du Maryland ont découvert dimanche matin des messages de haine gribouillés dans leurs églises. Mais plutôt que de se désespérer, ils y ont répondu par un message d’amour et de bienvenue.« Je me suis tout d’abord sentie découragée à la vue des inscriptions sur le mur mais ma deuxième réaction a été que c’est parce que nous faisons quelque chose de bien », déclare la révérende Kelsey Hutto, prêtre chargée de St. David’s Episcopal Church située à Bean Blossom (État d’Indiana), une petite communauté de moins de 3 000 habitants à 80 km environ au sud d’Indianapolis.« Pour reprendre la déclaration de l’Évêque Primat Curry que “parfois faire ce qui est bien n’est pas toujours apprécié”, c’est ce qui nous arrive, nous en sommes fiers et nous sommes convaincus que répondre à la haine avec amour est ce qu’il faut faire en tant que chrétiens ».Le 13 novembre, en arrivant à St. David, l’organiste de l’église a découvert les inscriptions « Heil Trump » « Église pédé » et une svastika, peintes en noir sur les murs extérieurs de l’église en briques grises.Au départ, la congrégation – qui est très active au sein de la communauté à travers ses programmes de service et d’entraide – a été extrêmement navrée de ce vandalisme, explique la révérende Kelsey Hutto, le 14 novembre lorsqu’elle est interviewée par Episcopal News Service« Mais à mesure que le service religieux se déroulait et que la journée avançait, la blessure s’est transformée, non pas en vengeance… mais en conviction qu’il fallait réagir dans l’amour », poursuit-elle.L’évêque d’Indianapolis Catherine Waynick, dans un message publié sur le site Web du diocèse, déclare que, même s’il est « profondément inquiétant d’être la cible d’un tel vitriol, c’est également une occasion d’être très clairs, avec nous-mêmes et avec le monde autour de nous, sur le fait que nous prenons au sérieux le commandement de notre Seigneur de nous aimer les uns les autres avec le même amour dont Dieu comble chaque personne – sans exception ».« Notre cœur et notre porte restent ouverts à tous, alors que nous prions pour avoir la sagesse et le courage de rester les fidèles disciples de Jésus ».Depuis l’élection de Donald J. Trump le 8 novembre, on constate à travers les États-Unis une augmentation des délits motivés par la haine, des graffitis anti-sémites, homophobes et racistes faisant référence aux propositions de politique et au discours de la campagne du président élu. Dans certains cas, les supporteurs de Trump ont modifié son slogan de campagne «Make America Great Again» [Rendons sa grandeur à l’Amérique] en «Make America White Again» [Rendons sa blancheur à l’Amérique].Le révérend Robert Harvey, recteur de la Church of Our Saviour, a pour la première fois remarqué l’inscription « Trump Nation Whites Only » [Nation Trump réservée aux blancs] inscrite sur un mur du jardin commémoratif de la paroisse, en se rendant à l’église située dans le quartier de Hillendale à Silver Spring (État du Maryland) pour l’Éucharistie de 8 heures du matin. Une fois à l’intérieur, en allant vérifier s’il y avait du courrier, il a vu que la bannière de toile annonçant la messe hebdomadaire en espagnol avait été lacérée et vandalisée, portant le même message.Le révérend Harvey a tout d’abord appelé la police puis a envoyé un courriel à l’évêque du diocèse de Washington Mariann Budde, qui a appelé le révérend Harvey en lui disant qu’elle serait là, à 13 heures pour la messe en espagnol. La plupart du temps le dimanche, une centaine de personnes assistent à la messe en espagnol à la Church of Our Savior, mais une fois la nouvelle du vandalisme diffusée sur les médias sociaux et dans la communauté, entre 250 et 300 personnes sont venues à la messe pour manifester leur soutien à l’église.« Un discours de haine a couvert la présence de l’église et nous sommes ici pour dire que nous sommes fermes dans notre rejet d’une telle violence. Nous sommes une nation d’immigrés et de gens de toutes cultures et confessions et cette violence n’a pas sa place dans notre pays », déclare Mariann Budde, dans une conférence de presse tenue le 13 novembre à l’extérieur de l’église à la sortie de la messe de 13 heures. « Et je fais appel particulièrement au président élu et à ceux qui ont voté pour lui de se dissocier des actes de violence et de haine qui sont perpétrés en son nom ».« Nous sommes convaincus que la majorité des américains veulent une nation de paix et d’unité pour tout l’ensemble de notre peuple glorieux et nous ne voulons pas que nos amis de couleur, nos immigrés et les autres qui se sentent vulnérables, imaginent que c’est cela que nous sommes en tant que nation », poursuit Mariann Budde. « Nous sommes un pays meilleur que cela et nous vaincrons la haine à travers l’amour, la paix et la justice ».Article complet en anglais.

Willie Ripia gets out of trouble by passing to the Ref

admin No Comments

first_imgTuesday Aug 4, 2009 Willie Ripia gets out of trouble by passing to the Ref Taranaki came back from being 9-0 down to beat Tasman 21-9 in their Air New Zealand Cup opener on the weekend. Sloppy play in the first quarter didnt do them any favours, as Tasman knocked over three penalties, including an impressive 53m kick. In the second half Taranaki found their stride, scoring tries through Jayden Hayward and Shayne Austin, with Willie Ripia kicking a conversion and three penalties. It was flyhalf Ripia who was involved in this interesting bit of play fairly on though, and we thought it would be an interesting bit to share with you. Trapped in his 22 with no support and under pressure from the opposition, Ripia looked around and saw only one option the referee. While we cant be 100% sure that his intention was as it appears, the look on his face afterwards did tells a story. It did in fact look like he got out of jail by stretching the law.

Photo Credit: Bob PazBarry Simon, the IBM Professor of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Caltech, has been awarded the International János Bolyai Prize of Mathematics for 2015 by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The prize is given every five years and honors internationally outstanding works in mathematics.As the award was discontinued for almost a century following World War I, Simon, whose work focuses on mathematical physics, is its sixth recipient.In particular, Simon is being recognized for his book titled Orthogonal Polynomials on the Unit Circle, in which he connects two important fields of mathematics: the theory of orthogonal polynomials and operator theory. Orthogonal polynomials are important in solving, expanding, and interpreting solutions to many kinds of differential equations. Operator theory has fundamental applications in the study of solutions to the Schrödinger equation, which is crucial to an understanding of quantum mechanics. Simon’s connection between the fields has led to diverse applications, from probability theory to theoretical physics.Simon first arrived at Caltech as a Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Visiting Scholar in 1980, joining the faculty permanently in 1981. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He also received the Poincaré Prize in 2012, named for mathematician Henri Poincaré. Poincaré was, incidentally, the first recipient of the Bolyai Prize in 1905.Hungarian Academy of Sciences President László Lovász will award Simon with the prize at a public session of the academy’s Section of Mathematics conference in the second half of 2015.

And it looks like we’re going to have a lot of support.”Included among the rally’s supporters is a new organization called the California Coalition for Safe Re-Opening. The Coalition is a collaboration between Chambers of Commerce and small businesses frustrated with the lack of coordination of re-openings and the haphazard recent closure orders.The group urges local and county governments to support the effort to promote safe, organized, methodical and long-term reopening schedules.Smith said “I want to keep all of our guests and all of our staff healthy and safe. That’s our main focus.”“We have all followed everything the government has asked is to do,” he said.But the manner in which restrictions have been imposed on businesses seems arbitrary and has had devastating results, Smith said.First, restaurants were told they would remain open with social distancing in place, Smith recalled.“We spent thousands of dollars, as did other restaurants, on plexiglass, which at that time there was such a run on plexiglass that the price went up triple of what it would have been. But of course, we still bought it. So we put in plexiglass dividers, we put plexiglass at our bars as did a lot of other restaurants and retailers,” he said.“That lasted approximately two weeks. And then we were told, ‘Nope. Whoops. You can’t do that. Now you have to go outside,” Smith said.“So a lot of us put a lot of money into our outdoor dining. Parkway Grill and the Arroyo Chop House put a hundred thousand dollars in setting up our outdoor dining.”But that came to an end, as well, earlier this month, when state officials issued a public health order banning outdoor dining throughout California. In the weeks prior, Los Angeles County health officials had already ordered a halt to outdoor dining, but it remained permitted in Pasadena, which has its own health department, making it the only city in the county that still allowed outdoor dining service at restaurants.Restaurateurs have complained there is scant evidence to support the notion that socially-distanced outdoor dining has contributed to the spread of the pandemic in any significant way.“We’re talking about opening safely with the collaboration of health professionals, doctors and health departments, to make sure that what’s, what’s happening is absolutely safe,” Little said.The restrictions are also having a major impact on the hundreds of families who depend on employment at the restaurants for income, according to rally organizer.“Some of them were in tears during the first lockdown because they couldn’t pay their rent,” he said. “Now, when they’re getting their finances back in order, the day before Thanksgiving, they get another gut punch. There are 30,000 restaurants out of business in Los Angeles County. Half of them will not, in my opinion, survive.”Another co-organizer of Saturday’s planned caravan, Global Luxury Real Estate Director Chelby Crawford, urged the business community to unite.Small businesses deserve the opportunity to create safe and controlled outdoor environments. They have the tools, expertise and experience to do more than the large big box stores that remain open, she said in an email.“Saturday’s event will be a safe and peaceful car caravan,” Crawford added. “Join the cause and show your support. The message is clear: We can open up safely. Saving jobs saves our community. This is an emergency show of support and demand change from our public officials to save our small businesses.” Business News Pasadena Businesses Plan Caravan to City Hall to Call for ‘Safe Reopening’ Group urges local governments to support the effort to promote safe, organized, methodical and long-term reopening schedules By DAVID CROSS and BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, December 17, 2020 | 3:04 pm Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Photo courtesy: City of PasadenaThe process of redistricting began on Monday with a workshop at Monday’s City Council meeting.City Clerk Mark Jomsky presented the administrative process and legal framework on redistricting procedures that will be used to determine how the current boundaries of the seven council voting districts might be redrawn based on 2020 Census data.After each 10-year census, the city utilizes that information to examine the people residing in existing City Council district boundaries to account for changes in population.The redistricting plan must be submitted by Dec. 15. The council must hold at least four public hearings before approving the map.The City Council will appoint a citizen-based task force to examine census data. The task force will then recommend a redistricting plan to the City Council.Applications to serve on the city’s Citizen-Based Redistricting Task Force are available by using the city’s commission application format. Applications must be turned in by April 1.To support public participation, city staff is requesting that a public engagement professional be retained to lead outreach and get the public involved. Duties will include crafting messaging, utilizing social media platforms, coordinating with city public information staff, and ensuring compliance with language requirements.“The task force will receive training on the legal requirements and framework governing redistricting ahead of consideration of potential changes to council district boundaries,” the staff report reads.“One of the benefits of the task force is to provide a public process that is singularly focused on the issue of redistricting, allowing members in the community to propose their own plans, comment on plans under consideration, and provide feedback to the task force regarding issues of importance and impacts that may occur related to redistricting,” the report states.A request for proposal, RFP, for a professional redistricting consultant and demographer will be issued on Thursday, March 18, and circulate for approximately three weeks.In the past, the redistricting task force has participated in the selection process for the consultant, including working with staff to review proposals, conduct interviews, and select the consultant(s) for recommendation to the City Council for approval.In 2012, the City Council voted 6-1 to shift the districts slightly, resulting in the exchange of about 1,392 people from one district to another.Thirty years ago, redrawing the lines put Victor Gordo on the road to the mayor’s gavel when the council created a new district — which is now District 5 — in the hopes of creating more opportunities for growing numbers of Latino residents to participate in the political process.That seat was won by Bill Crowfoot, Gordo served as his field rep before winning the seat and eventually becoming the second elected mayor in modern history.

‘I’m concerned … but life goes on’

first_img “My daughter is living isolated in the guest house for 14 days, as a precaution, so we only visit from a distance of six feet,” Borden said, but added with a smile, “it’s hard to isolate children.”So, Borden is homeschooling the grandchildren but they understand the need for social distancing, so there’s no hugging or kissing. “There will be times for that later.”For Borden, having her daughter and granddaughters nearby is comforting, but life isn’t all that different for her and her husband.“We are not town people,” she said. “That’s why we live in the country. So, social gathering is not a concern for us. But I do appreciate the opportunity to shop during the early hours and with other seniors.” Book Nook to reopen Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Stories Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Penelope Dawson is also very appreciative of the opportunity for early shopping for seniors. “It gives me increased confidence to shop for groceries,” she said. Dawson said, not knowing what lies ahead, she is more behavior conscious.“So, I’m finding more to do at home,” she said. “My major project is to complete a year-long needlepoint project. And, I’m taking advantage of streaming services … PBS PassPort. It’s all wonderful stuff. Try it!” Jim Medley of Brundidge waited in the car while his wife did the grocery shopping. His thoughts were more on the effects of the coronavirus than the grocery list. Medley said the government was late reacting to the global pandemic and that has put Americans behind the eight-ball. “Now, it’s up to us to stay ahead of the curve,” he said.  “As Americans, we are resilient and we will come out of this.”Judge Bill Barr agreed and said that the older generation has proven that Americans will stand together when times are tough.The most senior of senior adults have lived through WWII and Korea and others through Vietnam and they will lead the way through this crisis, he said.Tommy Lowery and his daughter, Iviana, were early shopping but not for meat and potatoes. They were shopping for a birthday cake and flowers for mom’s birthday. Life goes on.Life does go on and we must make the best of every day, said James Kimbrough.“Of course, I’m concerned,” he said. “I have 14 great-grandchildren. I worry about what life will be for them but we have to keep on living, so I pray. Prayer heals all things.” ‘I’m concerned … but life goes on’ Email the author You Might Like Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Published 7:00 pm Tuesday, March 24, 2020 By Jaine Treadwellcenter_img Tommy Lowery and his daughter, Iviana, are doing all they can to maintain a level of normalcy as the family copes with canceled classes and the unknown of the coronavirus situation. On Tuesday, they purchased supplies for a small, family birthday celebration. Frank and Wynnette Fryer laughingly said they would not normally be grocery shopping in the “wee” hours but then, there is little normality in the world today.The Fryers joined scores of local senior adults for an early-shopping hour at the Troy Publix on Tuesday.The Fryers of Naperville, Illinois, are Brundidge natives and, normally, spend January through March here “at home” but, because of the coronavirus spread in Illinois, they will winter in Alabama a little longer. “We have children and grandchildren in Illinois and there are more cases of the virus in the Chicago area than here in Alabama,” Frank said. “So, our children have told us to stay here as long as necessary.”Wynnette said their plans are to stay through April. Then, they will make a decision as to whether they will go home or stay home.Lynda Borden of Pine Level came to shop for 30 days so she was pushing two loaded shopping carts. Borden and her husband normally live a rather isolated life in the Pine Level countryside.  However, her daughter and her two granddaughters came up from New Orleans to weather the storm, so to speak.
