Germany: Operators could face €1 slot stake limit

While the fact German state lawmakers have reached a consensus on the future regulatory model for gambling has been welcomed, can reveal that the proposed controls for online slots and casino could bring further pain for the industry.Sources that have seen the current draft of the Glücksspielneuregulierungsstaatsvertrag tell iGB that casino regulations are split between licences for ‘virtual slot machines’ and online casino games.The slot licence effectively allows operators to provide an online equivalent of a land-based gaming arcade, without the other casino games. There will be significant additional restrictions, such as a €1 per spin stake limit.In addition each spin must last at least five seconds, no autoplay function will be allowed, and licensees will not be able to offer slot jackpots. This effectively transplants the current regulations for gaming machines in arcades and pubs online, our source explained.Online casino games, meanwhile, are defined as “virtual bankholder games” such as roulette and blackjack, as well as the broadcast of live versions of those games online.When Schleswig-Holstein announced a breakthrough in negotiations yesterday (22 January), it noted that states would have the option to develop their own controls for online casino. According to iGB’s sources, this will mean the states have the option to extend their monopoly to cover “virtual bankholder games”, or to offer as many licences to private operators as there are available for land-based casinos.In most cases, this would only mean one online casino licence per state, the source explained. The most that would be available in a single state is three, to match the three bricks-and-mortar casinos in Hesse. Other sources have suggested that the states will have room for manoeuvre, however, to issue more licences.“It will be interesting to monitor who will be best positioned to get these licences if a state did not chose the monopoly solution,” one source said. “The licensed operator of the land-based casino maybe?”Ultimately, iGB’s sources concluded that the high demand for online slots in the market today would have “disastrous” consequences for directing players towards legal offerings if the regulations remain unchanged.“The Prime Ministers still have this option [to change regulations],” they explained. “If they simply approve the draft, they haven’t understood what this is about. The suggested restrictions and supervision measures are sufficient – as demonstrated in other European countries – to provide effective player protection and market-oriented regulation.”The source argued that the Treaty appeared to have been designed to strengthen the state monopoly on lotteries, but in proposing such damaging controls on private operators, could ultimately have the opposite effect.“One can get the impression that the decision-makers in Germany are being influenced by unrealistic and single-sided interest-driven approaches,” they said. “That would be fatal, because now the regulation must succeed, be legally [sound] and future-proof.“My only concern is that the necessary expertise to see through these things is either not always available or not sufficiently in demand.”While the Treaty has been welcomed by the state lottery association, the Deutscher Lotto- und Totoblock (DTLB), operator body the German Sports Betting Association (DSWV) has criticised a number of elements.In particular, the DSWV took issue with the mandatory spending cap, which can be no more than €1,000 per player, across all sites, and restrictions on in-play betting markets. It also queried the decision to block access to a gaming site for five minutes after logging out of another. Germany: Operators could face €1 slot stake limitlast_img read more

In Abu Dhabi against the Kings XI, a fresh pitch and an attack that went wicketless against the Chennai Super Kings should work in Warner’s favour. He had also scored fifties in both games against the Kings XI last season.Vice-captain: KL RahulRahul has been the most consistent batsman in the tournament so far. Though his strike rate has been poor, the runs have continued to flow. In the absence of Kumar, the Sunrisers’ bowling lacks experience and Rahul should capitalise on that.Hot Picks for SRH vs KXIPJonny Bairstow: Bairstow has scored two half-centuries so far in this IPL. Though his 144 runs have come at a below-par strike rate of 121, he keeps wickets too, and that acts as a bonus.Nicholas Pooran: Pooran has discovered his touch after a rather slow start. In the last three matches, he has scored 102 runs at a strike rate of 196.15. He can be a vital cog in the wheel for the Kings XI given his excellent strike rate of 132.98 in the middle overs, especially against spin, when he goes at 138.20.Rashid Khan: In the last four games, Khan has picked up five wickets at an economy rate of just 4.56. Even with the short boundaries against the Mumbai Indians in Sharjah, he had an economy of 5.50. He looks high on confidence and we are backing him for another match-defining performance.For Live Score of SRH vs KXIP follow by clicking below link.

General Convention worship to draw on diverse resources

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Anne Davidson says: Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 The icon of Our Lady of Vladimir, shown here on a convention worship program, also will be incorporated into a reredos behind the altar at General Convention.[Episcopal News Service] Worship at General Convention will demonstrate diverse liturgy and music from across the Episcopal Church.“It’s a combination of everything that the Episcopal Church has at its disposal that’s been approved,” said the Rev. Charles Dupree, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Bloomington, Indiana, co-chair of the convention worship planning committee.Eucharist will be celebrated each day, with different services using formats from Enriching Our Worship or from the Book of Common Prayer‘s Rite 1 or Rite 2. Music will come from the 1982 Hymnal; Lift Every Voice and Sing II; Wonder, Love and Praise; Voices Found; El Himnario; and Flor Y Canto, a Spanish music resource.Musicians will range from church organists to a Native American flute player to a Haitian choir. Programs will be printed in English and one other language — Spanish most days, Hmong on July 6 and probably Shoshone on July 9, Dupree said.Service participants will be diverse, too.“We’re aiming for diversity of all sorts,” said the Rev. Sandy Webb, convention liturgical consultant and associate to the rector at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Roanoke, Virginia. This includes “diversity of orders of ministry, so that we have lay people, bishops, priests and deacons represented at all services.“We want geographic diversity from all corners of our church,” Webb said. The committee also aims for diversity in age, ethnicity and physical ability.“We’re really trying to encompass the full picture that is the Episcopal Church,” he said.The liturgies themselves will be “straightforward Eucharist,” Dupree said. “The goal for the design of these liturgies is for it to be a stabilizing force within the business of the convention.”“Liturgy, while it’s supposed to be engaging and interesting and stimulating, it also is familiar and grounding,” he said. “So my hope is that it will be a place where people can come and find their center … and at the same time be reminded about how the Spirit has [moved] and is moving through the work of the church.”The daily Eucharist will be held in the ballroom of the J.W. Marriott hotel, connected to the convention center via skyway, instead of in a center exhibit hall. According to the General Convention website, this saves the cost of renting a hall used only for services and rehearsals and was necessary because of the reduced convention budget adopted in 2009.Seating will be “theater style,” with a center platform for the altar, Dupree said. “And then we designed a reredos that picks up on some ancient iconography with some modern elements to it.” The icon of Our Lady of Vladimir – also used on the program covers – will be “the focus, so that it can hopefully infuse the room with a sense of mystery.”Each service except the July 8 festival Eucharist and UTO ingathering will commemorate saints from Holy Women, Holy Men, a revision of Lesser Feasts and Fasts now in trial use.Commemorated will be Walter Rauschenbusch, Washington Gladden and Jacob Riis on July 5; John Hus on July 6; Harriet Beecher Stowe on July 7; Samson Occum on July 9; Bartolome de las Casas on July 10; Benedict of Nursia on July 11; and Soderblom on July 12.July 9 is “also a day that we were asked by the Standing Commission on Small Churches to try to create a liturgy that would speak to designing and implementing liturgies in our smaller congregations,” Dupree said. “Many of our churches are incredibly small and don’t have the resources of some of the larger congregations in terms of access to different instrumentation and different sorts of choirs.”The conundrum was that a General Convention Eucharist is anything but small.“How do you create a small-church experience with 2,000 people? We assembled a group of parish priests and musicians from the Diocese of Indianapolis who serve in small congregations, and we set about trying to do just that,” Dupree said.The day’s musical instruments will include hammered dulcimer, psaltery and guitar, he said. “The idea around that is that you can take the talents that you have, and in the appropriate contexts they can be very effective and moving.”In keeping with the day’s commemoration of Occum, a Native-American flute player also will participate. “That, too, is a very beautiful instrument,” Dupree said. “It doesn’t have to be complex. We can use really simple instruments and, done with some thought and care, they can be very, very effective.”July 9 also will feature a volunteer choir of bishops and their spouses.“One of the things I always tried to encourage small churches to do would be to locate and develop local resources,” said Marilyn Keiser, Trinity music director and committee co-chair. “So I figured local resources at General Convention, among many other things, would also be the bishops who loved to sing and their spouses.”The Sunday Eucharist will use “Missa Guadalupe,” a Mass setting by Joel Martinson that alternates between Latin and Spanish, Keiser said.Musicians for that service will include a brass quintet, a combined choir of singers from the Diocese of Indianapolis and a choir from Haiti, she said.Throughout the convention, various choirs, organists and other instrumentalists will perform and lead music in styles ranging from traditional hymns to spirituals to Taizé songs. Alleluia verses will come from Flor Y Canto. Various musicians, including Dupree, have written settings for the daily sung psalms. July 11 will feature a Rite 1 service, with the Christ Church Cathedral choir of girls and men from Indianapolis “doing a lot of very traditional plainsong things for the prelude,” Keiser said.“We’ve tried to have a really good variety, a good representation of the ethnicities within the Episcopal Church,” said Keiser, who will play organ at the opening Eucharist and on July 9.“I think there’ll be a good balance of the traditional music of the church, the newer things … and then lots of instruments,” she said. “We hope that we’ll be inspiring. There’s nothing like singing in a group like that – the thrill of singing with several thousand people is just amazing.”While the committee worked to match music and liturgy each day – using Native-American drums for “gathering music” and a Native-American flute player during the service commemorating Occum, for example – individual services aren’t geared just to particular “constituencies,” Webb said. “We use a concept, and have for the last several General Conventions, that we’ve deemed ‘blended liturgy.’”A presider might do part of the eucharistic prayer in French while a lector reads a lesson in a Native American language, he said. “Over the course of the liturgy, we’ll move seamlessly between three or four languages.”The goal, he said, is “to show that the body of Christ is not separated parts, but a consistent whole, all parts being diverse.”Meanwhile, he’s busy with the practical logistics of planning services involving thousands of people. During worship, he wears a radio power pack to keep connected to worship leaders. He meets daily at convention with a worship team to keep things running smoothly. Currently, he’s working on contracts with a local bakery and winery for the quarter-ton of bread and 16 cases of wine needed.“Hopefully it will all be things from Indiana soil that we’ll be consuming,” he said.— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.In Spanish: Rector Belleville, IL David Krohne says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Knoxville, TN Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Rector Columbus, GA June 29, 2012 at 11:05 am Great and inspired question.

The back yard’s new construction lies around two patios which keep all the social spaces in clear relationship with each other and with the exterior garden. Thereby, the green spaces directly participate in the building’s environment and are as well extended to the green roof above the meandering construction at the back yard. On the first floor are located the private spaces of the house. Even if they were placed on a separated floor, their access is a mezzanine floor pierced and in relation to the spaces on the lower floor and punctuated by openings that allow transversal views and accentuate the depth of the composition.Save this picture!© José CamposConstructively, were kept the existing techniques and materials of the main building and, at the same time, were assumed new concrete elements on the new extension. Despite this, there is a contamination of colors and materials between the pre-existing and the new, making the building a living organism. The concrete appears on the main facade owing to the necessary adjustments to create a garage entrance, however, it appears as a mimetic of the existent tectonic. The ocher color from the clay soil of the property migrates to the plaster of the surrounding walls and to the pigment of the cement floor all over the ground floor.

Somalia: Puntland’s leading news radio closed

first_img SomaliaAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence SomaliaAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region Help by sharing this information Mohamud Hassan Soadde, Minister of information of Puntland March 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation January 8, 2021 Find out more June 27, 2016 – Updated on June 30, 2016 Somalia: Puntland’s leading news radio closed Follow the news on Somalia Receive email alertscenter_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is alarmed by the closure of Radio Daljir, the leading news radio station in Somalia’s autonomous northeastern region of Puntland. News News February 24, 2021 Find out more News News to go further Heavily-armed police units closed the station’s studios in Galkayio, Garowe and Bosaso, Puntland’s three biggest cities, on 23 June. The police had a closure order issued by Puntland’s police chief but no official reason has been given. Radio Daljir’sRadio Daljir’s director said the closure was triggered by an interview broadcast the week before in which former Bari province governor Abdisama Gallanin talked of overthrowing the current governor. Puntland information minister Mohamoud Hassan Soadde called the radio station after the interview and threatened it with violent reprisals. Tension has been mounting of late for Puntland’s media. A few days before the closure, the information minister sent a directive to media outlets banning them from interviewing opposition politicians that he qualified as”pirates and Islamic terrorists.” Media that do not comply will pay the consequences, he said, adding: “If you will not […] respect the law, we will use the barrel of the gun against you to remove your eyes.” Puntland’s journalists have let it be known they will not submit to such threats. They think the pressure is designed to intimidate the media and that it is linked to the legislative elections scheduled for August, which will be the first since 1967. “Such threats against journalists are intolerable,” RSF said. “The attitude of Puntland’s authorities is a direct violation of the region’s constitution, which guarantees freedom of the media and expression. We call on Puntland’s government to stop threatening journalists and to let Radio Daljir reopen at once.” The Somali Media association (SOMA), the Somali Independent Media House Association and the National Union of Somali Journalists presided by Mohammed Ibrahim (NUSOJ) have all condemned Radio Dajlir’s closure. Crimes of violence against journalists usually go unpunished in Somalia, which is ranked 167th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Under the law, the Federal Reserve is required to apply enhanced prudential standards to bank holding companies with $50 billion or more in total consolidated assets – thus creating a “de facto” SIFI designation for these institutions.”Neither the statutory text nor its legislative history offers a clear explanation for why Congress chose a bright-line $50 billion asset threshold for application of enhanced standards,” said Debevoise & Plimpton Partner Satish Kini, one of the witnesses at the hearing. “To the best of my knowledge, no economic studies or other data were cited by Congress in establishing this threshold.”Bank holding companies (companies that own or control one or more U.S. banks or have a controlling interest in one or more U.S. banks) that are designated as SIFIs under Dodd-Frank are therefore “too big to fail” and would receive a taxpayer-funded bailout if their economic stability were to be threatened. Some members of the Subcommittee contended at the hearing that Dodd-Frank is codifying “too big to fail” by continuing to designate firms (both banks and non-banks) as SIFIs, therefore guaranteeing those firms a federal backstop should a financial crisis occur.”As policy makers, we must always strive to be precise when improving legislative frameworks as to minimize unintended consequences,” said Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), Chairman of the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee. “I hope this hearing allows members to begin to consider different ways of measuring systemic importance and the regulatory consequences of being designated a SIFI.”One of those unintended consequences is the cost of maintaining “additional liquidity buffers” for banks to insure themselves against economic downturns, according to Zions Bancorporation Chairman and CEO Harris Simmons, one of the witnesses at the hearing.”While it is important for every depository institution to maintain appropriate levels of reserves to deal with normal fluctuations in cash flows, maintaining additional liquidity buffers as an insurance policy against times of extreme stress will almost certainly be a costly exercise for banks and for the economy at large,” Simmons said. “Every dollar invested in high quality liquid assets is a dollar that cannot be loaned out and put to more productive use. The impact will likely be most particularly acute for smaller and middle-market businesses that do not have ready access to the capital markets, and for whom bank credit is their financial lifeblood.”The same day as the Subcommittee hearing on the designation of banks as SIFIs, U.S. Department of Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said in an address at the Brookings Institution that SIFIs are held to higher standards for taxpayer protection – that that the law ended “too big to fail.””To keep taxpayers from ever having to step in to save a financial firm again, Wall Street Reform ended ‘too big to fail’ as a matter of law,” Lew told the audience. “In addition, regulators now have modern, commonsense tools to protect taxpayers.  For example, the FSOC can designate large institutions as “systematically important” and hold them to higher standards.  Also, in the event of a crisis or a bankruptcy, regulators can seize large financial institutions and wind them down in an orderly way.”American Enterprise Institute Resident Scholar Paul Kupiec, one of the witnesses at the hearing, said the basic premise behind the “too big to fail” theory was flawed.”Many argue that the TBTF [too big to fail] problem arises because SIFI financial institutions are so large and important that they are incapable of being reorganized in a judicial bankruptcy process without causing widespread financial market distress and disrupting economic growth,” Kupiec said. “The financial crisis that reached a crescendo after the September 2008 Lehman Brothers bankruptcy is often cited as evidence that supports the TBTF hypothesis, but such ‘proof’ ignores the possibility that the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy was caused by an advanced financial crisis already in progress―and the failure was not the cause of the financial crisis that peaked in the fall of 2008.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Congressman Randy Neugebauer Dodd-Frank Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee House Financial Services Committee SIFIs Systemically Important Financial Institutions Too Big to Fail Home / Daily Dose / Lawmakers Debate ‘Too Big to Fail’ and Criteria for ‘Systemically Important’ Tag Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Previous: Distressed Sales Fall to Eight-Year Low Next: Welcomes New VP of Industry Relations last_img read more
