Dutch regulator to clamp down on online bingo from 1 July

first_img Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Bingo Social gaming AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Bingo Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Dutch regulator to clamp down on online bingo from 1 Julycenter_img 29th June 2020 | By Conor Mulheir Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has announced that its temporary leniency towards online bingo will come to an end this week, on 1 July.From 1 May, the regulator has taken a relaxed view to online bingo games organised without a licence. During the lockdown imposed as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the KSA has been more tolerant of these games, given that they were being run in line with ‘altruistic’ objectives, and not for profit or exploitation.Normally operating land-based bingo games would require a gaming licence – with online prohibited until the Remote Gaming Act comes into force next year – but the KSA decided it would show more leniency throughout the pandemic, allowing the games to be used to help people socialise.At the time it said: “The KSA understands that in these times there are initiatives to provide a fun pastime for people, and make them feel as if they are out of isolation without having to leave their own home”.However, in a statement today, the regulator said it would resume enforcing regulations in full from 1 July. It cited the easing of lockdown rules as justification, as Netherlands residents will no longer need to stay in isolation from that date.Explaining why the leniency must end this week, the KSA explained it had seen a “large increase in the number of bingo [games] offered online since mid-March”. It has already had to intervene in more than a dozen cases, where games were being offered for commercial motives. Unlicensed bingo has seen an increase in other jurisdictions throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, with Danish regulator Spillemyndigeden also issuing warnings to operators and restricting unlicensed bingo games in May. In Norway, meanwhile, gambling regulator Lotteri-og stiftelsestilsynet (Lotteritilsynet) announced in March that land-based halls would be able to offer games online-only temporarily under lockdown. Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has announced that its temporary leniency for online bingo announced on 1 May will come to an end this week, on 1 July.

Flanker chops down rudderless runner with thumping legal tackle that is heard from the sideline

first_imgThursday Apr 18, 2019 Flanker chops down rudderless runner with thumping legal tackle that is heard from the sideline This short clip comes from an Under 19 match in the USA this past weekend, featuring a great example of a thumping legal tackle when the man with the ball got a little bit overconfident. ADVERTISEMENTLa Cueva Bears had the ball and as the second rower charged downfield after he beat two players easily the feeling from the sideline was clearly that he should look for support and play his men in space, rather than hanging onto it.“USE YOUR TEAMMATES” was the quite comical call from at least one frustrated onlooker and just when he did, in fact, look up to get it wide, Denver East High School flanker Angus Skinner came out of seemingly nowhere to chop him down.While some of the other footage from the match shows that it wasn’t an extremely high standard, this tackle itself was pretty much perfect technically, and the thump could be heard from the sideline.WATCH: SMG score dazzling team try straight out of the Barbarians playbookThe other interesting bit about this is that the tackle led to a turnover and just a few phases later, Skinner himself trotted over for a nicely taken, and well deserved, try of his own.The match was part of Denver East’s annual tour, this year to New Mexico. The trip comprised of over 150 players, fans and coaches. East’s three teams each played two matches, resulting in a combined 5-1 win-loss ratio. With fully committed tackling like this from Skinner, that’s not surprising.Send us your clips via rugbydump.com/blitz or through our social channels and we’ll share the best ADVERTISEMENTcredit: austinandreasen and steve for the submission Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Amateur , Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 32 WEEKS AGO Viral video of Scottish club brawl goes down… 69 WEEKS AGO RUGBYDUMP BLITZ: This Best of the Week round… 69 WEEKS AGO RD BLITZ – Disaster, just when it looked… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The program was entitled “Women on the move against the 1%; Oppression of women here and worldwide = resistance and solidarity.” The women speakers connected some of their daily personal and political experiences to the general status of women living under and resisting capitalism and imperialism, including low-wage jobs, racism, sexism, transgender oppression, war, occupation and other forms of institutionalized inequality.Monica Moorehead, an organizer of the forum, remarked: ”It was so inspiring and educational for everyone who attended this three-hour forum to hear these courageous women not only speak about their roles in their various groups and coalitions, but also connect their daily struggles to other women and communities that are thousands of miles away. Their words showed that these struggles know no borders. They also spoke about the need to put aside any differences in order to work together because building unity and solidarity is the only way to replace this oppressive system with one  — socialism — that is based on winning social justice and workers’ empowerment, including the liberation of women.”The speakers and their organizations were Joyce Kanowitz, People with Disabilities Caucus of Workers World Party; Madison St. Claire, Strategic Trans Alliance for Radical Reform, part of the Sylvia Rivera Law Project; Rosanna Rodriguez, Laundry Workers Center; Rosa Maria de la Torre, Chelsea Coalition for Housing; Norma Capuyan, KALUMARAN: Strength of Indigenous Peoples in Mindanao, Philippines; Fatin Jarara, Al-Awda, Palestine Right to Return Coalition; Brenda Stokely, Million Worker March Movement; Kaylee Knowles, Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) youth group; Teresa Gutierrez, May 1 Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights; and Sharon Black, Baltimore “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly.

New wave of protests sweeping across Chile

first_imgChile has witnessed a week of renewed protests demanding the resignation of billionaire President Sebastián Piñera and calling for a Peoples’ Convention to scrap former dictator Augusto Pinochet’s 1980 neoliberal laws, replacing them with a new Constitution. On March 8 — International Working Women’s Day — more than a million people demonstrated in Santiago and elsewhere.‘Women in resistance, defending Mother Earth’ banner at Int’l Women’s Day, March 8, Santiago, Chile.Reporter Alisha Lubben in the  March 8 Chile Today News described the massive event in Santiago: “The streets were electric with the voices of over one million women. Along the metro ride to Santa Lucia, cheers and chants permeated into the stations and grew louder and more enthusiastic with each stop.“Exiting the metro station, reaching the march was nearly impossible as even side streets and alleyways were brimming with women and children. Demonstrators clad in body paint and green bandanas brandished flags and carried banners that displayed messages regarding gender inequality, domestic violence, legal abortion and anticipation of better opportunities for future generations.More than a million people attend IWWD protest in Santiago, Chile, March 8. (Photo: @coordinadora8m)“At the front of the line, marchers clashed with police barriers, water cannons, and tear gas. A sign of unity and the true nurturing nature of women, onlookers rushed to the aid of those who had been teargassed with water, lemons, and tissue paper. The fight for human rights and equality marches on in Chile, with women at the forefront of the resistance.”On March 9, in general strikes demanding that Latin American governments act to improve their living conditions, women around the region stayed home from work, school and universities to show what daily life would be like without their input. Millions of women participated in Chile, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico.Called by 8M Coordination, the strikers demanded equality and the elimination of patriarchy. “This will be a year of mobilizations where women will be the protagonists,” said Javiera Manzi, a Chilean 8M Coordination spokesperson.  “We’ll take to the streets in full exercise of our rights. We went out to end this government from the front line.” (telesurenglish.net, March 9)March 11 national strikeThe March 8 demonstrations were a prelude to a national strike called for March 11, the second anniversary of Piñera’s election. Strike actions included a halt to all activities beginning at 11 a.m. for 11 minutes. “Super Friday” protests were held March 13 to commemorate the five months of protests that began in October 2019.Beginning in mid-October, and continuing every Friday since then, Chileans have demonstrated against Piñera’s neoliberal policies that have turned Chile into one of the most economically unequal countries in Latin America. The protests were initiated by youth over a 3.75 percent increase in subway fares. They quickly spread from Santiago to other areas despite brutal government repression.When the youth fought back, they gained the support of the Chilean working class.  After a week Piñera was forced to rescind the fare increase.The Chilean transit protests, in which youth jumped over turnstyles, inspired similar actions by thousands of youth in New York City that began November 2019 against transit police brutality.Since October, police in Chile have murdered at least 27 demonstrators; blinded over 500 people by shooting pellets, bullets and gas canisters at their eyes; injured almost 4,000 people; and arrested nearly 10,000, including children and youth.Chile’s Institute for Human Rights estimates that 439 women were among those injured. Six have filed complaints against police for sexual assault.The 150 days since mid-October have witnessed the largest demonstrations since the fascist coup, led by Gen. Augusto Pinochet in 1973 with U.S. backing, which crushed the progressive government of President Salvador Allende. Now thousands of people are uniting their voices to demand the end of the current Chilean government, with popular slogans like “Piñera, murderer just like Pinochet.” ​​​​​​​Chile’s political and social organizations have called for a new wave of protests throughout March, leading up to plebiscites on the new Constitution to be held on April 26.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Photo courtesy Mother’s ClubPhoto courtesy Mother’s ClubThe Pasadena Child Health Foundation (PCHF) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF), which took effect January 1, 2015. PCHF and PCF share a commitment to serving the local communities of Pasadena, Altadena, and Sierra Madre through grants to non-profit agencies. This arrangement will strengthen PCHF by enabling the foundation to better collaborate with other philanthropists in the area, which will in turn allow us to better serve nonprofits making positive contributions to the health of children.The Pasadena Child Health Foundation will retain its status as an independent private foundation wherein governance, fiduciary oversight, and granting decisions remain with the board. PCHF’s mission also will not change: we continue to financially support local organizations and programs that aim to reduce disparities that adversely impact the health of children residing in the greater Pasadena area.Over the past 10 years, PCHF has granted more than $2.7 million dollars to local agencies. Grants are made in four focus areas: Healthy Infant Development, Family and Community Connections, Healthy Weight, and Access to Health Benefits. PCHF invests in prevention and early intervention strategies and activities that incorporate the principles of collaboration, leveraging existing resources, and expanding capabilities to improve the health and well-being of Pasadena-area children.At the end of 2014, PCHF awarded grants to eight local agencies totaling $275,000. One of those went to Pasadena’s Mothers’ Club Family Learning Center to help enhance their Afternoon Two-Generation Learning Program. Says Mara Leong-Nichols, Mothers’ Club Development Manager: “For the families we serve, parents can’t afford child care, and many moms don’t have the skills they need to get jobs. As a result, most of our moms would be at home with their young children, isolated and often depressed. Mothers’ Club provides a welcoming, safe, and nurturing environment where families can thrive – side by side.”Mothers’ Club’s Two-Generation Learning is set up so that parents and children simultaneously acquire new skills and knowledge that result in positive outcomes for both generations. PCHF’s 2014 grant will allow Mothers’ Club to offer education, mental health support, leadership training, health and wellness workshops, and healing arts classes.List of Grantees:2014 Pasadena Child Health Foundation Grant RecipientsBoys & Girls Club of PasadenaFlintridge CenterGirls on the Run of Los AngelesLearning Works Charter SchoolMothers’ Club Family Learning CenterPasadena Educational FoundationRose Bowl AquaticsYoung & HealthyFor more information on Pasadena Child Health Foundation, please contact Pasadena Community Foundation at (626) 796-2097 or visit http://www.pasadenacf.org/.

Another first for UL with altitude training centre

first_imgAdvertisement IRELAND’S first residential altitude training centre has opened at the University of Limerick. The state-of-the-art facility provides elite sportspeople the opportunity to undertake altitude training while also availing of the world-class sports facilities on campus at UL. The project has been undertaken and funded by Plassey Campus Centre. Athletes from all endurance sports; athletics, swimming, rowing, cycling, triathlon, boxing and team sports such as rugby, football, hockey can benefit from altitude training.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up With no natural high altitude site available in Ireland, many Irish athletes have been forced to travel abroad to training at considerable financial cost. Professor Phil Jakeman, director of the centre, explains altitude training: “The success of this mode of performance enhancement is underwritten by the fact that altitude training has been used by virtually every medallist competing in endurance-based sports over the past 10 years.“Currently, the most effective training programme involves ‘living’ at an altitude of 2000m to 3000m for a period of 14-28 days. “This is normally achieved by athletes travelling abroad to high altitude camps away from their normal training environment and support structures.“Athletes residing at this altitude find it impossible to maintain their sea-level training programme and therefore, must undertake a daily trek to an altitude below 1500m to train, returning to altitude again overnight. “Furthermore, this type of residential altitude setting provides only one altitude, a one-size-fits-all approach that defies best practice in terms of specificity of training”.The National Altitude Centre at UL comprises of seven bedrooms, a shared living space which can cater for up to seven athletes at any given time. The facility has installed an hypoxic air conditioning system that allows independent control of the ‘simulated altitude’ in each room, thereby optimising the altitude response for each athlete. The system is capable of simulating an altitude range from sea level to 5000m”.

The plea has been filed by two law students of Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad, stating that it has become very difficult for parents to pay their children’s school fees, as their businesses have been affected enormously due to the pandemic. The Petitioners, through Advocate Yash Tandon, have pointed out that even though schools were not charging transportation fee, in terms of the Govt order dated April 21, 2020 and April 27, 2020, they were charging various other fees such as extra-curricular fee, library fee, electricity charges, computer fee etc., in addition to tution fees. “In UP the Government order does not bar the practice of charging of fee under a composite head which includes not just tuition fee but also various other charges. In both the orders schools are not prohibited from charging fees under various heads i.e. Computer Fee, Electricity Fee, Lab Charges, extra-curricular Fee, etc.,” the plea states. It is contended that this practice should be stopped, especially because the abovementioned services are not being availed by the students due to suspension of physical classes. It is also submitted that states such as Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Assam have already, by way of different orders, either directed schools to charge only tuition fee (without any other charges) or reduced some percentage of the total fee. The Petitioners have called for a “balanced approach” stating that interests of both the stakeholders i.e. the parents and the schools should be weighed fairly. “It is highly onerous for parents, in this time of crisis where the businesses are badly affected, to pay for all the services which are not even used by their wards,” the Petitioners remarked. The petition is drawn by Advocate Aslam Ahmed. A similar plea, seeking to waive off school fee for differently abled children who are unable to attend online classes due to their benchmark disability, is pending before the Lucknow Bench of the High Court. The bench comprising of Justice Pankaj Kumar Jaiswal and Justice Saurabh Lavania had issued notice to CBSE and the State Government last month. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had, last month, allowed private schools in the state to collect 70% school fees from the students. The Government of Rajasthan has deferred the payment of private schools fee, due as on March 15, 2020, for three months, the High Court was informed while hearing a similar plea. The Uttarakhand High Court had restrained private unaided schools from demanding tution fee from parents, and made payments optional. However, the order was challenged before the Supreme Court, and is pending consideration. Next Storylast_img read more
