US federal betting oversight ‘doesn’t make sense,’ says G2E panel

first_img Scott Longley reports on the debate over federal legislation of sport betting from from G2E Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: US US federal betting oversight ‘doesn’t make sense,’ says G2E panel In the wake of last month’s house sub-committee hearing on federal legislation of sport betting in the US Scott Longley reports on the debate from G2E.The moves made by the US Congress to re-impose a degree of control over sports betting in the wake of the striking down of PASPA got short shrift among panellists speaking on the first day of G2E in Las Vegas.At the end of September the House sub-committee on crime, terrorism, homeland security and investigations held a hearing on sports betting where Republican representative James Sensenbrenner stated that if Congress were do “do nothing” it would be the “worst possible alternative.”At the same time a separate move came from Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer from New York who joined up with Orrin Hatch, the Republican senior senator from Utah, to issue a call for Congress to seek oversight with regard to sports integrity.Both moves have been vocally supported by the US sport leagues despite, as the American Gaming Association (AGA) pointed out, PASPA only “enabling a massive illegal sports betting market that recently exceeded $150bn dollars a year.”Speaking on a panel at G2E in Las Vegas yesterday, Joe Asher, the chief executive of William Hill in the US, said such moves were unwelcome, particularly given the progress being made at state level to legislate for sports betting.“I’m not a fan of additional congressional legislation, to put it mildly,” he told the audience. “Why do sports leagues want to submit themselves up to the whims of the Congress, especially given the ability of Congress to hold hearings? It’s something I don’t quite understand.”The issue of Federal oversight with sports integrity has also become tied up at state level with that of potential data or integrity fees but Asher said he was sceptical of state legislatures moving to “divert money from tax payers and give it to the sports leagues and teams.”George Rover, managing partner at Princeton Global Strategies and previously attorney general and deputy attorney general in New Jersey, said that Federal oversight “doesn’t really add up.”“What you will see is the states will form something collaboratively to deal with integrity monitoring,” he said. “They have the same in Europe. That will put to rest the arguments.”Sources yesterday pointed out that despite the public support from the leagues with regard to the Federal moves, there was no consensus between them on the issues being discussed.It is notable that while Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the PGA Tour put out one statement, the National Football League (NFL) and the national Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) went with their own public comments.“It should be remembered, they are competitors,” said one source on the sidelines at the conference. “A spectator at the basketball is one less fan at the hockey.”The potential for further Federal moves on sports betting was also raised by another panel yesterday which looked into the tribal response to the post-PASPA sports-betting environment.Aurene Martin, president at Spirit Rock Consulting, said that she “didn’t really see Federal legislation happening.”Martin noted that the legislative calendar and next month’s midterms mitigated against the risk of Congress agreeing on any moves once the elections were over. “There’s nothing they can do to force a change, at least not in a lame duck (session),” she said.She added, though, that if there was any evidence of states falling down on problem gambling or sports integrity, it would trigger Congress to take more of a stand.Martin noted that the tribes had so far stayed on the out of the Federal debate but Steve Bodmer, general counsel of the Pechanga Band of Luseno Indians, did warn that the tribes should be prepared to argue their case over sports betting, particularly as it related to arguments about their various compacts and exclusivity agreements.“If there is a federal level, how would the tribes feel about relegating some of their sovereign authority?” he asked.Stephen M. Hart, partner at Lewis Roca, agreed. “What complicates it for Indian tribes is exclusivity,” he said. “It’s something the tribes hold dearly and it is very tough (when it comes to) sports betting.”Looking specifically at California, Bodmer suggested that if sports-betting was to be considered then the issue of the compact with the state and the exclusivity granted to tribal gaming would likely have to be addressed.“What makes this so difficult for tribal is the issue of what does exclusivity cover,” he said. “There is a discussion to be had about that. Is there no choice but to go forward given public opinion? In California, if you want to open sports-betting, tribes will have to be looked at.” Casino & gamescenter_img Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Tribal gaming 9th October 2018 | By Hannah Gannage-Stewart AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

The Brise Soleil House is a compact 2-bedroom, 173SQM dwelling situated at the top of a steep, west-facing block near Port Moresby Harbour overlooking a former cargo terminal. The house is a cast-in-situ concrete building partially clad in an undulating wave-like timber wrapper which provides shading, privacy, and ventilation to the master suite. The wrapper flattens as it continues around the building to become a full-height operable screen for the upper level gallery to control the western sun and capture views to the Coral Sea beyond.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Peter BennettsFrom a design perspective, the wrapper pays homage to local traditions of timber craftsmanship seen in the lowland stilt houses and intricately carved canoes (lakatoi), utilizing a system of complex joints and a high degree of surface articulation.  But it does so though a digital lens; updated to address the capabilities of contemporary software and hardware tools and their ability to manage complex systems and to mass-customize intricate geometries with embedded assembly logics. Furthermore, the design of the wrapper engages a broader discussion of screens and veils in equatorial architecture found in the canon of Modern and 20th century works by Ossipoff, Ferrie, Rudolf, and others.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Screen digital processThe wrapper and doors are constructed from 50×50 mm rough-sawn acetylated pine timber which is glued and doweled at digitally-executed complex half-lap joints.  The wrapper and doors, with a total area of over 80 square meters, contain over 2200 pieces in total and over 700 unique pieces with CNC milled half-lap joints, often on both ends. All milling, joining, finishing, and assembly into panels took place at the designers’ workshop on the Gold Coast of Australia, and was shipped via container to Papua New Guinea for installation.  The entire assembly has been organized as a system of seamless 1200mm panels and doors which serves not only to aid in transportation and erection, but also to minimize the need for skilled labor on-site.  Though each panel was unique the installation method was identical, which took approximately 2 days for a crew of 3 laborers working exclusively by hand on scaffolding.  The 8 door panels were similarly installed in one day.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessPandaDoc Office / Studio11Selected ProjectsSignature House / 100A associatesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboardlast_img read more

‘My experience with health care in Cuba’

first_imgWWP brigadistas leave from Los Angeles International Airport.On my second day visiting Cuba from the U.S. in October as a member of the “In the Footsteps of Che International Brigade,” I found myself suffering from a severe episode of back pain. I could not walk or put on my clothes, and I yelled out in excruciating pain. I also felt confused and worried about being in a foreign country with a different political system.I started to think about my past experiences with back pain in the U.S., which include long waits to see a doctor in the Emergency Room and worrying about whether my insurance would approve treatment. I remembered facing discrimination in the U.S. as a person of color. I remembered being questioned whether I was an addict and being refused therapy or pain medication.In Cuba the opposite situation occurred; I was treated with compassion and exemplary care. A security guard outside my room heard me yelling for help and immediately called for a doctor and nurse who both assisted me quickly. My stress was immediately eased as the doctor gently touched my shoulder and told me he would make me feel better, which calmed me in that moment.The medical staff gently eased my suffering by giving me both a muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory pill. I was then told to come back to the office in six hours, where I received a massage and an acupuncture treatment that continued to ease my suffering.I was so appreciative and pleased by my experience that I was curious, so I asked one of the doctors why he chose to become a doctor. His response was that being a doctor in Cuba is not about economic gain but about the ability to help others in need. He said it was his calling in life, and his answer brought a huge smile to my face.In Cuba, everyone has access to doctors, nurses, specialists and medications. There is a doctor-and-nurse team in every neighborhood in Cuba. If someone doesn’t like their neighborhood doctor, they can always choose another they are more comfortable with.House calls are routine, in part because it’s the responsibility of the team to understand you and your health issues in the context of your family, home and neighborhood. This is key to the system that makes health care successful on the island. By catching diseases and health hazards early, the Cuban medical system can spend more time on prevention rather than treatment. This prevents epidemics and diseases from spreading through the island population.When a health hazard like dengue fever or malaria is identified, there is a coordinated, nationwide effort to respond. Cubans no longer suffer from diphtheria, rubella, polio or measles. They have the lowest AIDS rate in the Americas and the highest rate of treatment and control of hypertension.For health issues beyond the capacity of the neighborhood doctor, polyclinics provide specialists, outpatient operations, physical therapy, rehabilitation and labs. Those who need inpatient treatment can go to hospitals. The neighborhood medical team helps make the transition go smoothly for the patient.Doctors at all levels are trained to administer acupuncture, herbal cures or other complementary practices that Cuban practitioners have found to be effective. Cuban researchers develop their own vaccinations and treatments when medications aren’t available, due to the U.S. blockade, or when they don’t exist.I was quite pleased with what I experienced with the health care system in Cuba and how effective and humane it was. I wish one day for this system to be replicated in the U.S. so others can experience it.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Cowboy Santas lends a helping holiday hand

first_imgprintCowboy Santas is lending a helping hand to Fort Worth families living in poverty during the holiday season.The non-profit organization raises money and collects new toy donations during the weeks leading up to the winter holidays then redistributes the presents to families in need.Cowboy Santas co-founder Carol Brown said their goal for the organization was to help the people who really needed it.

Its toy drop off sites are located in police and fire departments across Fort Worth as well as on TCU’s campus.Despite Cowboy Santas impact on Fort Worth, 128,000 children are still living below the poverty line during the holiday season.

Guinea-Bissau: reporter beaten by policeman while covering Covid protest

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the severe beating that a radio reporter received from a police officer on Janauary 28 in Guinea-Bissau while covering a protest by school students against the government’s decision to close schools as part of its latest measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. The previous day, Seidy had participated in a Bombolom FM programme about President Umaro Embalo Cissoko’s decision to close both state and private schools for a month. Although Seidy had his press card with him, the police officer ordered him to stay away from the protesters. The policeman then began hitting Seidy and finally arrested him. Seidy spent several hours in police custody before being released.

Donegal based Garda bids for Tribunal findings to be quashed

WhatsApp Facebook Google+ Pinterest Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Homepage BannerNews Findings against Garda Keith Harrison by the Disclosures Tribunal should be quashed because of an alleged prior professional interaction between Mr Justice Peter Charleton and a witness, a court has heard.The Donegal-based Garda who was strongly criticised in the tribunal’s interim reports has brought High Court proceedings on the grounds of an alleged prior professional involvement between the tribunal chair and Chief Superintendent Terry McGinn.The alleged prior engagement related to when the chief superintendent was the garda liaison to the Morris Tribunal, which considered allegations about gardaí in Donegal, in 2002-05 when Mr Justice Charleton was that tribunal’s Senior Counsel.Lawyers for the State claims the action should be dismissed and that Garda’s Harrison’s proceedings are fundamentally misconceived.The State also argues that no reasonable observer could form an apprehension of bias, as alleged by Garda Harrison, on the part of Mr Justice Charleton based on the professional interaction with Superintendent McGinn between 2002 and 2005.The hearing of the judicial proceedings where Garda Harrison seeks an order quashing findings made the Tribunal’s second interim report and the findings of the third interim report in so far as it relates to Garda Harrison, commenced before Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly yesterday.Garda Harrison, represented by Mark Harty SC, also seeks a declaration that the judge has acted in breach of the Garda’s rights to natural and constitutional justice and under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.‘Entirely without validity’Garda Harrison argues that the Disclosures Tribunal rejected allegations made by he and his partner, Marissa Simms, and had exonerated others they had made complaints about.The couple’s claims included that Simms was compelled by gardaí to make a statement against Garda Harrison which led to a Tusla referral.Garda Harrison also alleged he was the victim of a five-year intimidation campaign after arresting a fellow officer for drink driving in Athlone in 2009.In an interim report, Mr Justice Charleton said all of Garda Harrison, who was criticised by the tribunal, and Marisa Simm’s allegations examined by the tribunal were “entirely without any validity”.In contrast, Mr Justice Charleton praised the conduct of the chief superintendent and her management of the Donegal Division and was a key witness in relation to matters contained in protected disclosure made by Garda Harrison.Garda Harrison brought proceedings after becoming aware of newspaper reports which show a prior involvement between the Judge and the Chief Superintendent.Counsel said articles published by the Irish Times in 2006 quoted criticism of reconstruction from the Morris tribunal broadcast on RTÉ that had created a poor impression of Chief Superintendent McGinn.The articles quoted Mr Justice Charleton, then an SC, as saying all those who had worked with McGinn had great respect for the assistance she had given the Morris tribunal and it was unfair to her that listeners might think she just was not interested in the truth.It is claimed that the articles and transcripts of the Morris tribunal disclose that the Judge did know the chief superintendent and had worked with her and was in contact with her.Harrison’s lawyers asked the chairman to withdraw the reports concerning his client.However, the tribunal rejected that request.The tribunal said Chief Superintendent McGinn’s role as liaison was independent of the Morris tribunal, her involvement with Morris was well known, and Mr Justice Charleton had no recollection of the comments he had made to the tribunal about the broadcast.
