Nevada considers laws for remote sports betting

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling 17th October 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovation Tribal gaming Nevada is to consider altering its regulations to allow players outside the state to place sports bets through licensed sportsbooks. The Nevada Gaming Control Board met yesterday (Tuesday) to discuss proposals to expand the state’s sports betting market, whereby punters could place bets via mobile devices from outside Nevada’s boundaries. MGM Resorts, Caesars Entertainment and Wynn have all backed the expansion that would also enable players to register remotely, as opposed to having to visit a casino. However, not all Nevada casinos are behind the effort. Speaking on behalf of the Nevada Resort Association, Scott Nielson, who spent many years with Station Casinos, said the organisation has a preference to retain current regulations that require punters to register on-site. “Generally, our members of our association are comfortable with the status quo in that, if you go through a marketing plan process, then you can sign people up for a wagering account on premises. So we are comfortable with that status quo,” Nielson said, according to Legal Sports Report. The repeal of PASPA earlier this year granted other states the right to fully legalise sports betting, which in turn means Nevada now faces new challenges in terms of its market share. In September, research company Eilers & Krejcik Gaming tipped New Jersey to surpass the Nevada sports betting market by 2021. Although the Control Board opted not to take any action at this week’s meeting, chairwoman Becky Harris told Legal Sports Report that she plans to speak with stakeholders to continue the discussion of remote registration. Meanwhile, Santa Ana Star Casino Hotel in Bernalillo, New Mexico, has started accepting sports wagers. The launch follows an initial announcement last week from USBookmaking that it was to work with the casino on its sports betting offering. Punters can wager on professional and collegiate sports at the casino. Players are limited to on-site wagering as the state is yet to allow sports betting anywhere else in New Mexico. The sportsbooks will be operated from Monday to Friday between noon and 8pm, and on weekends form 7am to 10pm, with two self-service kiosks during off-hours.The Santa Ana Star Casino is operated by the Tamaya Nation at the Pueblo of Santa Ana, under the jurisdiction of tribal gaming laws. A tribal gaming compact between the state and tribes covers Class III gaming under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, which encompasses sports wagering.Image: EconomicOldenburger AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games Nevada considers laws for remote sports betting Regions: US Nevada New Mexico Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter New Mexico casino starts taking legal sports bettinglast_img read more

Zimbabwe: Harare Anglicans relaunch abandoned clinic project

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Bishop of Harare Chad Gandiya (R) said the diocese is having to rebuild after five years of persecution. Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] The construction of a much-needed clinic has resumed five years after a property-grab by an excommunicated bishop forced the Anglicans in Harare to abandon the project.The Memorial Clinic project was initiated by members of the Anglican Wabvuwi Guild and Anglican clergy following the death of five members in a road traffic accident in November 1997 at a turnoff close to St. Clare’s Mission.Construction was halted in 2007 when Nolbert Kunonga, a former bishop of the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA), and his supporters seized CPCA church properties including buildings, schools and orphanages. He then denied Anglicans access to any of the seized properties including the project site and the nearby church building.Kunonga, however, failed to carry on with the clinic’s construction and so stalled a development that had been approved by the Murewa Rural District Council (MRDC), the local traditional leadership, and the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare.St. Clare’s Memorial Clinic is a US$150,000 project expected to serve around 30,000 people living in Murewa, a Zimbabwean village located about 70 kilometers northeast of Harare. It will offer key health services such as a maternity department and outpatient services for adults and children.In a statement delivered on Aug. 27, Bishop of Harare Chad Gandiya said, “The initiative to build a health center in Murewa is work in progress for the Anglican diocese as we rebuild the church following five years of persecution by enemies of progress.“More support is still required from the corporate world and individuals to ensure that the project is completed on time and begins to serve the Murewa community in the delivery of standard health services.“To date we have spent US$30,850 and have since reached window level. We expect that, with proper support from corporate world and other well-wishers, the process can be expedited and completed by August 2014.”Gandiya praised the local communities for contributing their labor and time towards the project. “In line with its mission, the Anglican Diocese of Harare (CPCA) commends the work being done at the project site,” he said. “This project links directly with our various health initiatives across the diocese where we have HIV/AIDS projects, orphanages and functional institutions within the education sector.”In December last year, the Supreme Court in Zimbabwe ruled that the Church of the Province of Central Africa (CPCA) was the rightful owner of the properties. However, after five years of neglect by Kunonga and his followers, most of its buildings had been run down and many construction projects stalled. Refurbishing or finishing construction work is costing the diocese thousands of dollars.

The Mi Casa project was a dichotomy between the enthusiasm and the objectivity of the creative process. Designing for an architect, by architects, was and always will be a challenge, as we sought to create a practical, functional and timeless home. As in all Studio + projects, we sought an architecture that reflected personal taste but also followed the desire to simplify our lives. Save this picture!© Front FilmesSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Front FilmesThis trend became key in the conceptual development of the party. Clear volumes and pure geometries gave the design party rationality and harmony.  The house was distributed in three blocks: function, connect and dwell. Furthermore, the consistent application of concrete and wood created harmony, as this uniform materiality creates a sense of integration. Save this picture!Volumetry DiagramThe volumes overlap by intersecting the blocks, slab to slab. Only the central mass, which houses the social spaces whose purpose is to connect, is transparent and integrated with the gardens. The initial sketches always showcased a desire to juxtapose the heaviness of the concrete aesthetic with a light, floating floor slab.  Save this picture!© Front FilmesThe 87 pivoting doors made of wooden chamfered slats create the external façades of the project, where nature to become an integral part of the quotidian of the house, allowing all of the spaces to be completely integrated and open to the gardens. This change in opacity of the façade creates a dynamic relationship with the exterior. We worked alongside the landscaping team at Cenário, from São Paulo, to preserve all the existing native cerrado vegetation. The Caryocar near the pool was essential to the design, and this helped determine that the architecture created contemplated its urban context, Brasília.  Save this picture!© Front FilmesThe interior design is punctuated by personal choices (antiques, pieces chosen during trips, family art), gained elegance with the complement of Italian furniture, such as the Flexform sofas. The search for every piece, every painting and adornment gives the project a unique and important singularity.  Save this picture!© Front FilmesSave this picture!© Front FilmesA seemingly simple house, but one that carries a story full of challenges and efforts, ever since its conception.

Penn Law students oppose selection of David Skeel, Jr., for award, cite his role in destruction of Puerto Rico

first_imgOver 60 students and alumni of Penn Law School have released a collective statement condemning Professor David Skeel Jr. as the recipient of the 2019 Beacon Award. Skeel is cited for his service on Puerto Rico’s Financial Oversight and Management Board, also known as the Fiscal Control Board. The annual award recognizes “exemplary commitment” to pro bono work by a Penn Law faculty member.The March 27 statement makes clear that the FCB, known by the people of Puerto Rico as “la junta,” is an anti-democratic regime defending the interests of the profit-making financial sector at the expense of the life and health of the Puerto Rican people.The statement opposing Skeel states: “Because of the Board, Puerto Rican workers have lost benefits, including sick leave and vacation pay, and hundreds of their public schools have been shuttered to pay debts to Wall Street banks.  San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz has called the Board ‘an exercise of raw colonialism.’ Gov. Ricardo Rosselló accused the FCB of trying to ‘impose measures that negatively affect the quality of life of our people.’”The students and alumni emphasize: “The Board serves the banks, not the people. We strongly urge the Toll Public Interest Center Advisory Board to reconsider their choice.”This is not the first time that David Skeel Jr., who teaches bankruptcy law in Philadelphia, has been targeted for participation in la junta. Over the summer and fall of 2018 “wanted posters” appeared around the Penn campus bearing Skeel’s photograph. These labeled him a “mercenary who demands the blood of Puerto Rican people to pay rich Wall Street bondholders.” Demonstrations were held at the Penn campus to focus on the role of Skeel and Philadelphia native Julia Keleher in the theft of Puerto Rican resources. Keleher was paid $250,000 by the FCB to serve as Puerto Rico’s “Education Secretary” despite her lack of education experience.In an Wall Street Journal op-ed on Sept. 13, 2018, Skeel objected to the posters, pointing out that PROMESA — the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management and Economic Stability Act signed into law by President Obama in 2016 — instructed the oversight board to “achieve fiscal responsibility and access to the capital markets.”Skeel’s work for Wall Street started long before that act was signed. In a 2014 WSJ article, he argued for management of the debt crisis in Puerto Rico as a test case for attacking workers’ rights. He cited parallels to U.S. states facing similar hardships, such as Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and cities like Philadelphia.In the article Skeel pointed out that, unlike local officials reluctant to make drastic cuts because they are subject to reelections, a board appointed by congressional mandate could get away with attacking public employee unions and cutting programs, jobs and benefits.In his words as an advocate for “capital markets”: “There may be a silver lining in these financial clouds.”Allout class war on workers and poorWho got to line their pockets with silver obtained through the “restructuring” of Puerto Rico’s debt? Members of the FCB, appointed by the U.S. president and chosen by leaders of the House and Senate, were given broad powers to serve the interest of the bondholders, with no accountability to the people of Puerto Rico.The FCB’s powers included instituting automatic hiring freezes and reducing the minimum hourly wage of workers under 25 years old from $7.25 to $4.25.The resulting layoffs, cuts in basic services and increases in the cost of living exacerbate hunger and poverty on the island, which continue to worsen nearly two years after Hurricane Maria. Foreclosures of mortgages on homes and repossessions of automobiles have became widespread.Under the pretext of “stimulating the economy,” the Law of Transformation and Labor Flexibilization of 2017 stripped workers of hard-won gains, including the 8-hour day. This law cut wages, vacation and sick days, reduced bonuses and extended workers’ probation periods.The 2017 Single Employer Law impacted public sector workers by defining the government as a single employer that could move workers from one agency to another at will, even to the private sector. Workers who are moved face the loss of protections won under collective bargaining agreements,  including seniority.In addition to draconian attacks on workers’ rights, the FCB also imposed taxes and increases in fines and tolls across the board, while cutting municipal subsidies and allocations for art, culture and sports programs and programs protecting women. Other FCB cuts included $1 billion from health care, a 10 percent reduction in pensions, and more than $600 million from  the budget of the University of Puerto Rico. There is clearly nothing “exemplary” or “pro bono” — “for the good” — about the mercenary job Skeel is doing on Puerto Rico.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU tops Central Connecticut 9-6 to open Fort Worth Regional

Iqbal leads women’s golf to fourth-place finish at Big 12 Tournament The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Facebook printAfter a 25 1/2 hour weather delay, TCU and Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) finally took the field for their first game of the Fort Worth Regional Saturday. Starting Pitcher Mitchell Traver led the Frogs to a pivotal game one win over the Blue Devils, 9-6.Traver dominated the Blue Devils all night en route to his fourth win of the year. He struck out a season-high nine batters while allowing just one run on one hit and two walks through seven innings.“Obviously the number one job is to go out and give your team a chance to win,” Traver said. “Anytime you can pitch deep into a ballgame, especially the first game of a regional, you feel good about that.”Traver held the Blue Devils hitless through four innings behind six strikeouts, before running into the first trouble of the night in the fifth.A leadoff error on Connor Wanhanen at first, followed by a slow roller to left put two Blue Devils on base with no outs. After a fly out, Traver induced the first of two double plays in the game to escape the inning and strand the runner on third.Traver came out for the eighth inning but a leadoff walk chased him from the game. Cal Coughlin entered in relief and got the first two batters out, but a two-out RBI double by nine-hole hitter Nick Landell broke up the shutout and cost Traver a scoreless outing.“I was upset that I walked the first batter of the eighth on four pitches,” Traver said. “That wasn’t ideal. I didn’t put Cal in a good situation, but he came in and did his job.”Traver’s outing moved his career home postseason numbers to 23 innings pitched, one run, eight walks and 23 strikeouts.The Frogs’ offense made noise in the first inning as Austen Wade walked to open the game and was on second when Cam Warner drove a single to right field, but a bullet to the plate from CCSU’s Franklin Jennings kept TCU off the board.CCSU starter Brendan Smith did not allow the first run of the game until the bottom of the fifth when a leadoff walk, a stolen base, a throwing error and a run scoring double by Josh Watson put the Frogs in front.Nolan Brown provided cushion to the lead in the sixth when he laced a two-out single up the middle to bat in Evan Skoug who reached on a walk and Cam Warner who singled the at bat before.“Kind of just staying with the opposite field approach,” Brown said of his thought process before his hit. “That lefty was battling and giving us a tough time and he was throwing a lot of breakers. I was trying to sit on a breaker and on a fastball, just let my hands work to it. I was just trying to stay up the middle.”Smith, making what likely is the last start of his career, battled through six innings giving up just three runs on four hits.“Outstanding,” CCSU coach Charlie Hickey said of Smith’s outing. “It’s something that Brendan’s worked awfully hard for, and I’m guessing that those memories are going to last a long time.”TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle  Schlossnagle knew coming in to not overlook the Blue Devil’s starting pitcher.“My biggest concern coming in to this game is when you face a senior left-handed pitcher who has been around the block like he has, he’s going to be competitive,” Schlossnagle said. “He’s going to make pitches, and he’s going to be better than he maybe was in the regular season. That’s exactly what we got.”After the Blue Devils’ scored a run to make it 3-1, TCU broke the game wide open in the bottom of the eighth. Wade doubled, Zach Humphreys singled and Skoug hit a three-run line drive over the fence in right to make it 6-1. The homer was Skoug’s 17th of the year, the most by a Horned Frog since Matt Curry hit 17 in TCU’s Cinderella run to the College World Series in 2010.Elliott Barzilli pushed the lead to 8-1 just three batters later on a two-run double. The hit ended an 0-3 night and extended his hot streak that started in the Big 12 Tournament a week ago when he went 9-19 at the plate.TCU scored its final run of the game when Watson hit his second RBI double of the game. Coming into the game with the lowest batting average among Horned Frog starters, the switch-hitter doubled from both sides of the plate and just missed his first home run two different times.CCSU used five hits, two errors and a walk to rally from the 9-1 deficit in the top of the ninth against Jake Eissler to put the tying run at the plate, but Durbin Feltman came in to pick up his 16th save on a strikeout to close out a 9-6 win.“I thought Jake did a good job; he walked one guy but he threw strikes,” Schlossnagle said. “He certainly left some balls up, and we had a couple errors to go along with it. Nobody at this time is going to cash in down 9-1. I hope if we are in that situation we don’t, and Central Connecticut certainly didn’t.”The Fort Worth Regional continues on Sunday as the Blue Devils will have to play Dallas Baptist at noon, while the Horned Frogs will match up with Virginia at 4 p.m.Jared Janczak will get the start against the Cavaliers. Virginia will be the home team against the Horned Frogs.“It’s going to be a ridiculously awesome game and incredibly talented players with big leaguers all over the field,” Schlossnagle said. “Our guys will be ready to play. Whether we play well or not, I don’t know, but it is going to be an awesome experience.” Facebook Twitter Branson Nelson Photo from Branson Nelson ReddIt Equestrian earns last seed in NCEA team bracket Branson Nelson Branson Nelson Branson Nelson Linkedin Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution A COVID-19 Charles Schwab Challenge + posts Previous articleAlumna finds TCU experience helped prepare her for ‘Survivor’Next articleJanczak powers through 8 innings to send TCU to regional title game Branson Nelson RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Women’s golf heads to Oklahoma for chance at first Big 12 title TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddItlast_img read more

5 of 8 victims identified from New Mexico bus crash; deaths caused by blunt force trauma

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(THOUREAU, N.M.) — Five of the eight people killed in a horrific bus crash in New Mexico on Thursday have been identified.Authorities also announced all eight people died as a result of blunt force trauma, according to the medical investigator.The first five victims were identified as Charla Bale, 34, Terry Mason, 45, Veronica Jean Williams, 49, Sadie Thomas, 50, and Luis Alvarez, 50.Authorities believe, based on an interview with the driver, that the tractor trailer blew out a tire and veered across a median before it hit a Greyhound bus head-on, according to New Mexico State Police. The accident happened on I-40 near Thoreau, New Mexico.Alvarez was the driver of the bus. “My heart goes out to the families of these victims. We are always diligent to try and identify decedents quickly so we can release them back to their families,” Dr. Kurt Nolte, chief medical investigator, said in a statement. “We know there are other families who are still waiting for word of their loved ones and we are using several identification methods to make those identifications.”New Mexico State Police and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) continue to investigate the accident.The NTSB has downloaded and will analyze information from the electronic logging devices (ELD) of both the Greyhound bus and the semi truck. ELDs have been mandated for all commercial vehicles since December 2017, and it synchronizes with a vehicles engine to record driving time. The NTSB said information obtained from both ELDs will be important to their investigation, providing information on the vehicle’s motion. The NTSB has identified Jag Trucking Inc., a new company that began operating in 2014, as the operator of the semi. Jag started the New Entrant Safety Assurance Program in 2014 as required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and completed the program with a satisfactory rating.On Monday, NTSB investigators will meet with Jag company representatives and are working to schedule an interview with the driver.
