Senior Michigan politician eases fears over legislation veto

first_img Former Michigan Senator Mike Kowall has predicted sports betting and online gaming will be legalised in the state, despite outgoing governor Rick Snyder vetoing legislation for each vertical. Former Michigan Senator Mike Kowall has predicted sports betting and online gaming will be legalised in the state, despite outgoing governor Rick Snyder vetoing legislation for each vertical.Snyder refused to sign House Bills 4926, 4927 and 4928, which were passed by the Michigan House and Senate during the final legislative session of 2018.However, Republican Kowall, who served as Michigan Senate Majority Leader until this earlier month, and sponsored the versions of Brandt Iden’s House Bills in the legislative chamber, says despite this opposition, he fully expects legislation to pass sooner rather than later.In an opinion piece for The Detroit News, Kowall said that the coalition of Democrats and Republicans in support of both online gaming and sports betting had become too large to ignore.He urged politicians and the gambling industry to make Michigan’s new governor, Gretchen Whitmer, aware of the financial benefits of legalised betting in the state. Whitmer was sworn into office on New Year’s Day, replacing Snyder after his term limit expired.Kowall also spoke about the positive impact online gambling can have on land-based casinos in the state, saying the new market could boost revenue at the existing facilities on an “astronomical” scale.“It will become an economic blessing, not a liability, for the city of Detroit, if only the incoming governor gives it a chance to succeed,” Kowall said.The former Senator, who failed to secure a seat in the US Congress in the 2018 November elections, also moved to allay concerns over the issue of problem gambling. He said many Michigan residents were already wagering at unregulated, offshore sites, and that effective channeling to regulated offerings would afford a high level of consumer protection.Regulation would also help the state protect minors from the dangers of gambling, he continued, noting that online identify verification had proved more effective than in-person checks conducted at land-based venues.“While both parties were disappointed by last week’s veto of the online gaming bill, in the coming year my colleagues that are still serving look forward to working with Whitmer to push it over the finish line once and for all,” Kowall added.Image: Senior Michigan politician eases fears over legislation veto AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 10th January 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Sports betting Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Online Gambling Regions: US Michigan Sports betting Email Addresslast_img read more

Watch: Jonny May scores 30-minute hat-trick against France

first_imgAfter that the game petered out, and England will now turn their attentions to the trip to Cardiff in two weeks to face Wales, who are also unbeaten in this year’s championship.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Opening act: Jonny May celebrates scoring his first try (Getty Images) Six minutes later May had his hat-trick. Henry Slade put up a high ball, Morgan Parra knocked it on and Chris Ashton reacted quickest to pounce on the ball. He put through a kick for his fellow wing and this was probably the easiest of May’s three tries as there was clear grass in front of him to chase and touch down.France were next to cross the whitewash, Yoann Huget releasing Penaud into space in the England 22, but England had the bonus point wrapped up by half-time.Henry Slade scored the fourth try when stepping inside Guirado from a few metres out. Owen Farrell’s conversion made it 30-8 at the break.Further tries followed in the second half at Twickenham. First England were awarded a penalty try when  Ashton was tackled without the ball by Gael Fickou and referee Nigel Owens decided a try would have been scored without that infringement.The opportunity was created after Slade had intercepted a Camille Lopez pass and kicked ahead for Ashton. It resulted in seven points for England and a yellow card for Fickou.Then in the 55th minute, Ben Youngs took a quick tap penalty and passed to Farrell, who kicked ahead.  May was beaten to the ball by Antoine Dupont but the French scrum-half couldn’t secure possession and Farrell was quick to touch it down himself. He then converted his own try. Jonny May scores 30-minute hat-trick against FranceJonny May scored a try after just 65 seconds of England’s 44-8 win over France in the Six Nations – and within half an hour he had added another two to secure a hat-trick.This was England‘s biggest victory over the French in more than 100 years – second only to the 37-point winning margin in 1911 – and it was winger May’s first hat-trick at Test level.It took his tally to 22 tries in 42 Tests, 12 in his last 12 Internationals and he was also named Man of the Match.Related: 30 Minutes with Jonny MayThe first try came just after the minute mark. France captain Guilhem Guirado knocked on in midfield, Ben Youngs picked up the loose ball and passed it out to Elliot Daly. The full-back found a gap in France’s defence then kicked ahead for May to chase.The Leicester man beat the French chasers to touch down with one hand for the try to make it the fifth consecutive Test in which England have scored a try within three minutes of the kick-off. Watch the opening try below…May was on the scoreboard again in the 23rd minute. England attacked from a lineout in the French 22, using strong carriers on short bursts, then Owen Farrell changed tack, switched the direction of the attack and spun a wide ball out to May, who stepped around Damian Penaud for his second.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Winger Jonny May runs in three tries in half an hour in Six Nations match at Twickenham – England’s biggest win over France since 1911last_img read more

The details are fluid, but the plan is clear: Today Apopka…

first_img June 6, 2020 at 2:28 am The Anatomy of Fear Reply Every once in a while, there’s a day with an absolute right and an absolute wrong. But those days are few and far between. As a community, it’s important to know when to set aside differences and stand together as one.This is one of those days.At 11:30 am, three diverse groups will gather at Kit Land Nelson Park in Apopka to protest the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25th. There will be speakers, prayers, and then some will walk about a half-mile to the Apopka Police Department while others will take the route to City Hall. And while opinions, approaches and ideologies may be diverse among these groups, they gather together in union of one cause.*****The Apopka Police Department released the following statement earlier in the week. In part, it reads:“The Apopka Police Department is aware of several social media posts regarding a protest occurring in Apopka this coming weekend. We are taking precautions to prepare for any protest that may develop to include adjusting personnel schedules to have additional resources available… At this time, some of the details of the intended protest have been fluid and we continue to monitor the plans for the event.”*****While the details may be fluid, the plan is clearThis is a time for Apopkans to come together, to stand together, to march together, united for justice.The details that are known:When: Saturday, June 6th, at 11:30amWhere: Kit Land Nelson Park (parking in the back portion at Edwards Field)What: Spoken words, prayer, a marchWear: Participants are encouraged to wear black and white colorsThe details that are fluid: Some say they are marching from Kit Land Nelson Park to the Apopka Police Station, then returning over the pedestrian bridge and back to the park again. Others say they are marching from Kit Land Nelson Park to City Hall.While the details may be fluid, a welcoming spirit is presentNo matter your race, your gender, your occupation – you are welcome. No matter your faith – if you consider yourself religious or spiritual, or of no particular belief at all – you are welcome. No matter if you are young or old, or consider yourself ageless – you are welcome. No matter if you are rich or poor, a city official or resident, a student or a teacher – you are welcome.While the details may be fluid, the purpose is black-and-whiteTo unequivocally condemn what happened to George Floyd. To support and join with those who have been disenfranchised and help make a way for their voices be heard. To condemn targeting. To demand accountability. To call for true equality for all.While the details may be fluid, hope remainsThe hope for deeper conversation… that leads to stronger listening… that becomes quicker action, unstoppable action, long-lasting action, difference-making action.The hope that what is felt today won’t disappear tomorrow… but instead will propel our residents, our leaders, our communities, our city, our county, our state, our country forward, forward, forward… never backward again. Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 June 7, 2020 at 8:50 am Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply I hope all those who come out to march and protest against the unjust treatment of George Floyed, resulting in his death; edge out anyone who tries to sully the spirit of Unity and Community Solidarity by standing United against power drunk police (don’t support: looting, property damage, and violence).–Be the change that you wish to see in the world. 4 COMMENTS Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate And spread corona even more….

Otro tipo de guerra: sanciones económicas unilaterales dañan a Siria

first_imgA principios de diciembre, la Conferencia de Ministros del Interior del Estado de Alemania extendió la prohibición de deportaciones a Siria sin restricciones hasta al menos en junio de 2020. Originalmente, los ministros del Interior en su reunión de otoño en Lübeck planearon relajar la prohibición y permitir las deportaciones de criminales serias. Durante la conferencia, sin embargo, se pintó una imagen sombría de Siria. El país “es cualquier cosa menos seguro”, declaró una organización de ayuda de la iglesia.La cuidad de Alepo en Siria en 2019.“Casi no hubo ninguna oportunidad de educación o capacitación y pocas posibilidades de encontrar trabajo y obtener ingresos”. El sistema de salud estaba “en el fondo”; no había “suficientes viviendas intactas”.Un informe del 20 de noviembre del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores dirigido a la conferencia declaró que “no había áreas seguras para los retornados”. Declaró que los ataques del “régimen” eran posibles en cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento, con la excepción de las áreas actualmente bajo Turquía. o control kurdo o controlado por los EE.UU.Sin embargo, al contrario de lo que los políticos y los medios han descrito, la guerra se ha estancado en gran medida, excepto en Idlib y otras áreas en el norte del país. Sin embargo, ahora se desata un tipo diferente de guerra, debido a las medidas económicas punitivas unilaterales de la Unión Europea y al embargo de petróleo por parte de los Estados Unidos, una guerra económica.Dispuestos a volverSin embargo, decenas de miles de personas aún están decididas a regresar a Siria. Vienen de Turquía, Líbano y Jordania, y los sirios que ahora viven en Europa también planean regresar a su tierra natal. Un informe de la Agencia de Refugiados de la ONU (ACNUR) en octubre de 2019 afirma que 75,501 refugiados regresaron “espontáneamente” entre enero y septiembre de este año. Es probable que esta sea una estimación mínima.Para 2019, se espera un “aumento en los retornos autoorganizados”, aunque esto presenta un desafío, según el informe. El ACNUR está tratando de ayudar reparando refugios y brindando asistencia legal, subsistencia y educación. Sin embargo, “las crecientes demandas de apoyo para los repatriados” exigieron un mayor compromiso de todas las partes involucradas.Pero los ricos estados miembros de la ONU de Europa, los Estados Unidos y los Estados del Golfo no están brindando apoyo. El gobierno de Damasco se aisla cada vez más y, después de todo el daño de la guerra, las sanciones económicas unilaterales de la UE están destruyendo la economía siria. Estas sanciones se impusieron por primera vez al sector petrolero de Siria en 2011. Desde entonces, las sanciones se han endurecido y extendido anualmente, más recientemente en mayo de 2019 hasta el 1 de junio de 2020.Actualmente, 269 personas y 69 instituciones y empresas están en la lista de sanciones. Están sujetos a la prohibición de ingresar a la Unión Europea, y sus activos personales en los bancos europeos se han congelado. El pretexto para las sanciones es que estas entidades son responsables de la violencia y la represión contra la población civil en Siria y se benefician de “apoyo al régimen y/o estar asociados con personas o instituciones del régimen”.Además de todo el gobierno sirio, el personal militar, los empresarios y sus empresas están en la lista. Estos incluyen Syrian Arab Airlines, el proveedor de telefonía móvil Syriatel, el reconocido periódico Al-Watan y todas las compañías y bancos de producción de petróleo sirios, incluido el Banco Central. Incluso las organizaciones sirias de comercialización de tabaco y algodón están sujetas a sanciones porque son instituciones estatales.Reconstrucción dificultadaLas medidas punitivas unilaterales tienen un efecto devastador, especialmente porque están vinculadas al embargo petrolero de Estados Unidos, que también es unilateral. En Alepo, los empresarios de la Cámara de Comercio e Industria están sujetos a las sanciones.“Nos impiden construir nuestras empresas y crear empleos”, dijo un empresario en Alepo en una entrevista con Junge Welt. En cambio, Europa está enviando organizaciones de ayuda a Siria: “Nos dan pan, pero no trabajo. Las personas se vuelven dependientes en lugar de vivir con dignidad. Cada trabajador que contratemos podrá alimentar [a] su familia [ellos mismos] ”.Solo el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU tiene la autoridad para imponer medidas punitivas a un país. Por lo tanto, las sanciones unilaterales son contrarias al derecho internacional. ldriss Jazairy, el Relator Especial a cargo de la ONU, ha declarado este concepto legal una y otra vez. La mayoría de los estados miembros de la ONU rechazan las sanciones unilaterales, pero los estados occidentales ricos toman la ley en sus propias manos, dijo, lo que agrava el peligro de la guerra internacional.El 21 de noviembre, la Segunda Comisión de Asuntos Económicos y Financieros de las Naciones Unidas abordó la cuestión de la legalidad de las sanciones unilaterales. Se presentaron 16 proyectos de resolución y se aprobaron dos.Entre ellos se encontraba uno que pedía a la “comunidad internacional” que condenara las sanciones económicas, financieras o comerciales unilaterales porque impiden el desarrollo de los países. Los castigos que no están autorizados por los organismos de la ONU deben suspenderse.Dichas medidas son incompatibles con el derecho internacional y contradicen el principio básico del sistema económico multilateral.La resolución fue aprobada por 116 estados miembros de la ONU, mientras que dos estados –Estados Unidos e Israel– votaron en contra.Cincuenta y dos estados, entre ellos todos los estados de la UE, incluida Alemania, se abstuvieron.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Local Students Named U.S. Congessional Goldwater Scholars

Goldwater scholarships for the 2015–16 academic year.

Credit: Lance Hayashida/CaltechThe Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program was established by Congress in 1986 to award scholarships to college students who intend to pursue research careers in science, mathematics, and engineering.Saaket Agrawal is a sophomore from El Dorado Hills, California, majoring in chemistry. Under Greg Fu, the Altair Professor of Chemistry, Agrawal works on nickel-catalyzed cross coupling, a powerful method for making carbon-carbon bonds. Specifically, Agrawal conducts mechanistic studies on these reactions, which involves elucidating the pathway through which they occur. After Caltech, he plans to pursue a PhD research program in organometallic chemistry—the combination of organic (carbon-based) and inorganic chemistry—and ultimately hopes teach at the university level.“Caltech is one of the best places in the world to study chemistry. The faculty were so willing to take me on, even as an undergrad, and treat me like a capable scientist,” Agrawal says. “That respect, and the ability to do meaningful work, has motivated me.”Paul Dieterle is a junior from Madison, Wisconsin, majoring in applied physics. He works with Oskar Painter, the John G. Braun Professor of Applied Physics, studying quantum information science.“The quantum behavior of atoms has been studied for decades. We are researching the way macroscopic objects behave in a quantum mechanical way in order to manipulate them into specific quantum states,” Dieterle says. Painter’s group is studying how to use macroscopic mechanical objects to transform quantized electrical signals into quantized optical signals as part of the larger field of quantum computing, a potential next generation development in the field.“The power of quantum computing would be immense,” says Dieterle, who would like to attend graduate school to study quantum information science. “We could simulate incredibly complex things, like particles at the edge of a black hole. Participating in this physics revolution is so exciting.”Agrawal and Dieterle bring the number of Caltech Goldwater Scholars to 22 in the last decade.

City analyst predicts Rightmove will lose more agents this year

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » City analyst predicts Rightmove will lose more agents this year previous nextMarketingCity analyst predicts Rightmove will lose more agents this yearHargreaves Lansdown paints a gloomy picture for the portal in the short to medium term, until the housing market and agent finances return to some kind of normality.Nigel Lewis24th June 20201 Comment1,389 Views A leading City investment analyst has poured cold water on the prospects of Rightmove in the short to medium term after its shares dropped 8% at one point yesterday afternoon following its decision to extend its Coronavirus fees discount period until the end of September.Hargreaves Lansdown, which gained considerable notoriety last year following its role in the downfall of Neil Woodford’s Investment Management Fund, says it expects the portal to lose more agent customers as the economic slowdown caused by the pandemic begins to bite harder.Rightmove revealed yesterday that it had already lost 3.8% of its advertisers including 620 agents and 135 developers since the start of the year.Worse to come“As the UK is weaned off furlough schemes towards the end of 2020, we expect the worst is yet to come. The result could be more of Rightmove’s customers going out of business,” the report says.“Overall, Rightmove’s dominant market position should stand it in good stead once conditions return to normal.“But normal is looking increasingly far away which is going to hit earnings this year at least.“For now, the dividend is suspended. The full extent of the damage will depend on how long the disruption lasts, and how quickly the economy recovers.”But there is good news for agents in the Hargreaves Lansdown report. It says that the tough economic conditions means such an environment “doesn’t bode well for price rises”, suggesting the portal will have little option but to freeze or drop its fees as the pandemic’s affect on agent profits and turnover continues to create problems through this year and into 2021.Read the report in full.Rightmove Hargreaves Lansdown June 24, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 25th June 2020 at 4:26 pmThe property portal king is dead, long live the king, July the 1st beckons and there is a whole phalanx of property portals massing on the horizon. Is phalanx an apt term? … ‘a rectangular mass military formation, usually composed entirely of heavy infantry armed with spears, pikes, sarissas, or similar weapons.’ Yes, I would say that is a pretty accurate state of affairs.The new portal challengers are ‘tooled up’ with new technology and new ways of doing things, making the consumer journey a much smoother process. Also, the position of agents in the mix of these new models has changed, they are seen as partners and the holders of the inventory that the end consumer wants. Unlike Rightmove who seems hellbent on ostracising the paying agents in annual price increases.Yes, they are cutting the cost now, a 20M sop, but would it not have been far simpler to develop the portal in the last two decades, rather than sit on a dot come idea from two decades ago.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

Will tenant referencing cope when millions come off furlough in March?

first_imgA leading referencing platform has warned that the lettings industry faces a major challenge when the extended furlough scheme ends on 31st March.Last week Chancellor Rishi Sunak revealed that the scheme, which has so far supported some 9.6 million jobs since the first lockdown, has been extended by five months until the end of March.“It’s clear the economic effects are much longer lasting for businesses than the duration of any restrictions, which is why we have decided to go further with our support,” said Sunak.But having so many people on furlough for such a prolonged period is presenting problems for many letting agents as landlords reject or ask for guarantors for prospective tenants, if they have been furloughed.Simon Tillyer, Vouch“We’re clearly dealing with a new set of challenges when it comes to not only referencing but also the whole rental market,” says Simon Tillyer, Founder and Director of Vouch.“With furlough extended, a major spike in unemployment predicted, and an ongoing stay on evictions, the landscape that agents and landlords are grappling with is an ever-shifting one.“What we’re focusing on is ensuring our referencing product anticipates these challenges and works hard to flag evolving risk factors.“We’re then offering additional support alongside this, such as Rent Protection Insurance and enhanced customer service offerings to further mitigate against uncertainty.”Spotting furloughAnother referencing supplier which uses Open Banking protocols to check tenants, but which wants to remain anonymous, told The Negotiator that most systems provide reference providers with ‘average’ income levels for a tenant over usually a 12-month period. But this means it’s harder to spot when a tenant has been furloughed and their income drops by 20%.“But the longer a person is on the scheme, the easier it will become to detect if a tenant has been furloughed,” a spokesperson says.Hamptons International also says that problems with referencing mean it is getting increasingly hard for less affluent tenants to move home which, its research shows, is already beginning to show in the market with affluent areas seeing an increase in home moves, and poorer areas witnessing a drop.Read more about referencing.hamptons inernational furlough Rishi Sunak referencing Simon Tillyer Vouch November 9, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Pullman Speaks Out Over Changing Landscape

first_imgAuthor and local-resident Philip Pullman expressed his concern over the way Oxford was changing, warning that it threatened the unique nature of the city.Pullman raised his concerns while lending his support to campaigners protesting against plans to redevelop the Castle Mill Boatyard site in Jericho. The former boatyard site is under threat following plans put forward by Spring Residential to build blocks of flats. Speaking of the boatyard, he commented that it was sites such as these which distinguish the city; the new additions would only add to what he described as the “concrete wasteland” spreading over Oxford.”The Covered Market is changing, and Cornmarket is now a street like any other High Street in the country, so it is all the more important we protect little spots like this.”People need to protest and make their views heard as soon as possible. Oxford is unique and different to any other city in the world.”last_img read more
