Hesse: no sports betting licence applications received

first_img Hesse: no sports betting licence applications received 11th December 2019 | By contenteditor Casino & games The Minister for the Interior in the German state of Hesse has claimed no operator has filed an application for a federal sports betting licence, warning that companies will face immediate action if they continue to operate without certification.Minister Peter Beuth said that operators would be expected to temporarily cease offering sports betting until their licence application has been processed by the Regional Council of Darmstadt, the state body that will oversee the process.While Beuth pointed out that the Council has been accepting permits “for months”, no operator has filed its application to date. Operators have until the end of the year to file these applications.“I therefore urgently warn operators that from January 2020, sports betting is subject to authorisation, and there will be no more toleration [of unlicensed offerings],” Beuth said. “We will consistently prohibit illegal offerings. If you do not have permission then you are liable for prosecution, and the state will be forced to act. “Advertising for sportsbook providers would then no longer be shown, whether on television or in stadia.”In preparation for the licensing process, which begins from 2 January, the first working day of 2020, the Regional Council of Darmstadt had been expanding its headcount. By the end of the year, it would be the largest gambling regulatory body in the country, Beuth added.However, the Minister went on to warn that the implementation of the third amended State Treaty on Gambling was seen by the state as a stop-gap measure. The legislation is only due to remain in force until 30 June, 2021, after which it is to be replaced by a new, long-term regulatory framework.A diverse range of bodies have called for new model to include online casino legislation, such as operator association the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV) and gaming hall body Deutsche Automatenwirtschaft (DAW).The Gambling Research Centre (Forschungsstelle Glücksspiel) at the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart has even put forward a proposal that would limit igaming to online casino, and enforce a complete ban of advertising.However, the state Minister-Presidents have not tackled the issue of gambling since ratifying the State Treaty in March this year at any of their regular conferences.This appears to have prompted Beuth to reiterate Hesse’s threat of breaking away from the State Treaty to devise its own framework, warning that further work was vital. Beuth has previously called for online casino to be regulated, and the prohibition on in-play wagering to be lifted.“The fact that sports betting in Germany is still possible without the safeguards to combat gambling addiction and ensure consumer and youth protection is intolerable,” he said. “These are, after all, the most important goals of the existing State Treaty on Gambling.“The states must finally unify to ensure that sports betting operators adhere to regulations and players are protected against manipulation and addiction.“If our additional [proposed] amendments go unheeded, Hesse will have to introduce its own gambling laws,” Beuth continued. “Hesse will not continue on the same path from 2021. If necessary, we will create our own state legislation.”The state has already diverged from the State Treaty to some extent, by prohibiting sports betting from taking places in restaurants that also host gaming machines. This would ensure players are less likely to gamble excessively, though it is not set out in the Treaty nor in the Hessian Gambling Act.In addition, tax revenue raised from legal sports betting will be shared with recipients of good causes funding from the state lottery, who will see these contributions increase by 10%.“We want more money to be made available for volunteer work in Hesse,” Beuth explained. “The recipients of state revenue from gambling will receive a bigger share from [2020]. “They will receive a grant increase of around ten percent, with which the state government strengthens [funding for] voluntary work in fields such as sports, education, social work and youth work.”He pointed out that for the Hessian Landesportbund, the umbrella association for the state’s sports clubs and governing bodies, would see its funding increase by €2m as a result of the 10% increase in funding.

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

first_imgFriday Jan 23, 2015 Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath With Oscar season just around the corner, Yoann Huget has made his best effort to scoop the coveted statuette with a best actor in a leading role performance that simply cannot be beaten. Sense has since prevailed, as he received an official warning.Toulouse wing Huget’s big role took place in their heavy defeat at the hands of Bath on Sunday.The French winger took a tumble after making the slightest contact with what looked like his shoulder. He rolled around on the floor as if he’d been hit by a sniper, which the BT Sport commentators took exception to, Ben Kay in particular.“That is pathetic. Personally I think that the powers that be, the disciplinary committee, should look at that and they should act on it because we do not want to see players taking dives. Just a little push in the chest and he grabs his face.. That is pathetic,” said Kay.European Professional Club Rugby agreed with the general media and fan sentiment. They issued a formal warning to Huget this week. EPCR said that the warning followed an “act contrary to good sportsmanship in that he (Huget) deliberately feigned an injury in contravention of Law 10.4(m).”Players who accumulate three citing warnings or three yellow card offfences for foul play – or a combination of both – during the Champions Cup and European Challenge Cup competitions will be required to attend a disciplinary hearing.Last year we saw the likes of Bryan Habana, Richard Hibbard and a few others feigning injury or appealing for foul play, when clearly it wasn’t the case. This official warning sets a good precedent, and will hopefully remind all rugby players that acting should be saved for the movies.View more acts of simulation, or faking injury, in the Related Posts below thisADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The long sweeping plot on which the house was built, is tucked away in the Frisian landscape and surrounded by ‘tree walls’, hiding it from the road.Save this picture!© Auke van der WeideLong lane through the private landscapeThe house is designed within the landscape context. By placing the house across the full width of the lot, the lot is divided into a courtyard on the entrance side of the house and into an open landscape garden on the other side. A long driveway leads the visitor through a small forest and the courtyard to the front door located at the entrance gate leading to the landscaped garden.  Save this picture!© Auke van der WeideThe lane ends at the southern edge of the plot in the quiet of the countryside. At this poin t we suggested to make a folly where one can enjoy a cup of tea, while enjoying the silence of the landscape and the view of your home.Save this picture!© Auke van der WeideInside and outside space gradually merge togetherThe architecture supports the spatial seclusion of the place. The location on the lot creates a north and a south façade with a public side and a private side, a sunny side and a shady side. The lot is enclosed by mature tree walls.  Save this picture!© Auke van der WeideWhere the tree rampart touches the house, a natural stone wall takes over the guidance of the landscape and at the same time serves as the termination on both short sides of the house. On the south side the stone wall retreats a little and provides a diagonal view of the landscaped garden. The ground floor floats just above the earth as if the house has not yet ‘landed’ and is a guest in the landscape.Save this picture!Floor PlanSustainable and energy efficientThe floors, walls and ceilings of the house are made of concrete, finished with natural white stone or stucco. High quality and durable materials that have been used include aluminum frames and high efficiency glass. The heat and cold storage in the ground ensures that no gas is needed. Together with a long narrow strip of solar collectors in the landscape garden, the house is very energy efficient.Project gallerySee allShow lessA-KAMP47 / Stephane MalkaArchitecture NewsYAP 2013: bam!

Youths seize and destroy opposition newspapers in orchestrated censorship

first_img Reporters Without Borders today condemned a campaign of censorship and intimidation against opposition news media using gangs of young people who have roamed through the streets of Abidjan in the past few days, threatening and attacking street vendors selling opposition newspapers and tearing up copies of the newspapers targeted.The violence began three days after an anti-rebel movement known as the National Federation of Ivory Coast Forums and Parliaments (FENAPCI) – which claims to defend “constitutional legality” – decided the “withdrawal from the market” of all newspapers that support the rebellion and the G7 opposition coalition, “until the disarmament”.”We must protest against these illegal raids, because tolerating this kind of political censorship is to encourage arbitrary power,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We expect the Ivorian government to take steps to punish this behaviour and the groups involved, and to guarantee the diversity of the Ivorian press.”The organisation pointed out that article 9 of the constitution’s first chapter states that free expression is ‘guaranteed to everyone, subject to respect for the law, the rights of others, national security and public order.'”Those who instigated this censorship by means of vandalism should bring it to an immediate end since they profess their attachment to ‘constitutional legality’,” Reporters Without Borders added.”We no longer want to see these newspapers”The decision to launch the campaign of violence was taken at an extraordinary general assembly of FENAPCI members on 23 October in the Abidjan district of Cocody. Interviewed by the daily L’Intelligent d’Abidjan, FENAPCI president Idriss Ouattara said he and his “comrades” could “no longer accept that these newspapers continue to sing the praises of the rebels and the G7 on our territory” and that they “no longer want to see these newspapers.”Beginning at 7:30 a.m. on 26 October, several groups of individuals calling themselves “civil society” members accosted newspaper vendors in the Abidjan districts of Yopougon, Port-Bouët, Adjamé, La Riviera and Cocody. They threatened them, told them to stop selling Le Patriote, Le Nouveau Réveil, Le Front, 24 Heures and Jour plus, and tore up all the copies they found of these newspapers.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, editorial staff at Le Patriote, Le Nouveau Réveil, Le Front and 24 Heures confirmed that there had been many attacks on vendors, especially in the district of Yopougon, a FENAPCI stronghold. Le Patriote said two of its vendors, Lamine Tierno and Apollinaire Kouassi, had been badly beaten.Diallo, a vendor in Port-Bouët, told Reporters Without Borders: “They told me not to sell certain newspapers. I asked why. They told me I was being stubborn and tore everything up.” A similar group accosted a vendor in Cocody. “They arrived and started tearing up all of the opposition newspapers and some other independent newspapers,” he said. “They did give any reason. I later realised they were targeting the newspapers they consider to be the supporters of Forces Nouvelles,” he added.A member of one of these groups encountered by Reporters Without Borders on an Abidjan street said the operation was called, “Remove pro-rebel newspapers from the retail circuit.” He said: “The newspapers that were torn up defended rebels who refuse to lay down their arms. It is not normal that newspapers continue to support them in articles by people who have decided to burn Ivory Coast. This action is just the beginning of other, more energetic actions that will be started in the days to come.”Edipresse, a company that distributes newspapers and magazines, already decided on 25 October to suspend distribution in Agboville (north of Abidjan), and in the southwestern towns of Gagnoa and Soubré because of the threat of violence.

Authorities investigating fires at historically black Louisiana churches

first_imgLouisiana Office of State Fire Marshal(LAFAYETTE, La.) — Investigators in Louisiana are working to determine whether several fires at historically black churches are connected.There have been four fires in the past two weeks, three of which were in the same county. The other was at a church more than 220 miles away.Both the Louisiana Office of State Fire Marshal and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms are investigating the fires.Authorities have determined there are suspicious elements in each of the three church fires in St. Landry Parish, not far from the town of Lafayette, according to a statement from the state fire marshal.“There is clearly something happening in this community,” said state fire marshal Marshal “Butch” Browning in a statement.A spokesperson for the marshal’s office noted that investigators have not confirmed connections between any of the fires.There have been no injuries at any of the churches, as each building was unoccupied at the time of the incidents.The first fire was reported on March 26 at St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre, in St. Landry Parish.Five days later, at about 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, March 31, a fire was reported at Vivian United Pentecostal Church in the northeast corner of the state. The state fire marshal confirmed in a news release that “after assessing the scene, collecting evidence and gathering witness statements, it was confirmed the fire was intentionally set.”The next fire was reported in St. Landry Parish on April 2, at the Greater Union Baptist Church, which is located about 11 miles from St. Mary Baptist Church.The fourth and final fire was reported on Thursday, April 4, at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Opelousas, about seven miles from the Greater Union Baptist Church.Rev. Gerald Toussaint, the pastor at Mt. Pleasant, told ABC News the damage is “bad,” and “the only thing that’s left is the front of the church, the corridor when you go in” but the rest of the church was severely damaged.“They’re heartbroken,” Toussaint said of his parishioners, “because our church has been around for 145 years.”“They’re pretty heartbroken but they’re faithful. They’re strong,” he said.Toussaint said when the other churches reported fires, he thought to check that his church’s insurance papers were all in order as a precaution.He said the church did not have any security cameras in place, but, “I tell you what: once we rebuild, we’re going to be full of security cameras.”“The church is not that building. The church is the people. The building is the sanctuary where we meet, so if we stay together as a congregation, the church is alive and well. We can rebuild the building as long as we stay together,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Another estate agency launches off the high street – with big-tech funding

first_imgA former high street estate agent in Cheshire has launched a hybrid agency backed with an investment from a leading software developer.Hale Homes will be covering the prime Manchester suburbs of Hale, Barns and Bowden.It has the backing of ICX4, an Altrincham and Delhi-based business data firm that specialises, among other things, in Know Your Client due diligence.Hale Homes founder Jackie Atkins says her agency launch follows 12 years spent working for agencies in the region including Gascoigne Halman and Jordan Fishwick, and before that a career in property development.Not on the high streetAtkins has taken the increasingly common decision not to open a branch, claiming physical offices are no longer a key focus for customers when choosing an estate agent.“No-one wants to peer at properties through estate agents’ windows or make unnecessary office visits in the light of the Covid-19 threat,” she says.“I meet clients face-to-face, outside, or in a lovely coffee shop, to get a good feel for the area or at their home – wherever they feel most comfortable.“We will combine the best of a traditional estate agent – the local knowledge, property sale expertise and the best in customer service – with the simplicity and speed of an online operation – a bricks and mortar agency without the bricks and mortar.“I have been a property customer in Hale myself and customer service often falls short of my expectations – our service is built around meeting my high standards and redefining what customers should expect from their estate agent.”Visit Hale Homes.Hale Homes Jackie Atkins hybrid agencies October 9, 2020Nigel Lewis3 commentsmark flynn, Julian Marks Julian Marks 9th October 2020 at 9:21 amIs it really any surprise that yet another internet agent opens with the comment ‘no-one wants to visit a physical office’.

Hey ho!Log in to ReplyAdam McHenry, Cadman Homes Cadman Homes 9th October 2020 at 8:45 amWith respect I wish her luck, however the amount of walk ins we get is still very viable in terms of valuations, clients and potential clients asking for advice and helps with our community pledges like the scouts post and various things we do for the elderly and other social groups.Photocopying things for people, clients dropping solicitors paperwork in etc.. If you’re off the high street then yes, there is a massive cost saving and you can work from home without the constraints of “the day job”, and yes it’s not essential anymore, but really you re no different to the purple one, and if you have a usp be careful, if the corporate online giant nicks it you’ll get crowded out.Log in to ReplyAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 9th October 2020 at 8:38 amIn time as in other industries all real estate agency operations will be more tech based, automated systems allowing the consummate property professionals more face to face time, even if it is via a digital screen. Not sure if boutique coffee shop approach is going to be a Covid reality any time soon unfortunately, but the idea of agile new businesses setting up with experienced property people at the helm is an increasing feature.Having the clout of a tech business is also an interesting development, might we see Amazon Estate Agents sooner than we think?

viewpoint

first_imgIt is good news for the baking industry that it will have one show, with the sole aim of promoting bakery machinery, ingredients and baked goods (pg 4). The agreement between BEL, the board which ran Food & Bake exhibition, and Wm Reed Exhibitions, which will launch The Baking Industry Exhibition at the NEC in April 2008, means a show that will carry the whole industry and also have theatre, live demonstrations and widespread promotion through many media.So I would urge companies taking part, or just thinking about it, to save new launches or new developments for the show. Why? Because the one question on everyone’s lips from buyers to the media is always: “What’s new?” Of course, you will have exclusive clients whom you may want to tell first. But you will attract a much wider number of new customers if you keep something important back for the show. It’s not every day that someone invents a stress-free divider, launches a new loaf into Marks & Spencer, called a ciabatta, or creates a confection named after a vegetable that becomes a best-selling carrot cake! But these have all become talking points and at least two of them were launched at shows. So if you can come up with a potential best-seller, keep it under wraps, but do develop it in time for April 2008.As always in this fast-moving industry, much has happened this week. Carr’s Milling predicts a significant deterioration in flour margins because of resistance to the price increase – an increase that has been fully explained in this magazine and elsewhere and is fully justified.And if you are a craft baker, could I urge you, without delay, to sign up for Doughnut Week, sponsored by BakeMark. You can phone craft baker Christopher Freeman or register online but please do not miss this opportunity of raising your profile in your local community, raising your profits and, at the same time, raising money for the Children’s Trust (pg 4).Elsewhere this week, fats expert, the highly knowledgeable Gordon Kirkwood, MD of Vandemoortele, delves into the technicalities of trans fatty acids – and their substitutes (pg 16). And we also delve into the background of Allied Bake- ries’ biggest-ever relaunch of its Kingsmill brand (pg 14).last_img read more
