Bet-at-home slapped with fine by Dutch watchdog

first_img Online operator was warned by regulator on two previous occasions Email Address Bet-at-home slapped with fine by Dutch watchdog Legal & compliance Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands 11th July 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Online operator bet-at-home has been fined a total of €410,000 (£362,000/$480,000) by the Kansspelautoriteit, the Netherlands Gaming Authority, after the regulator found that the online operator had targeted Dutch citizens without holding a gaming licence in the country.The Kansspelautoriteit said that bet-at-home offered games of chance to Dutch citizens between June 14 and October 11 last year.The regulator, which warned bet-at-home about its activities in 2012 and 2014, said it had received reports about the website apparently targeting Dutch citizens “via a television channel aimed at the Netherlands” in May last year.The watchdog added that fines of €210,000 and €200,000 were imposed on Entertainment Limited and Internet Limited respectively.“With regard to the other parties involved in the report, a warning is sufficient,” the Kansspelautoriteit said.The regulator added that the fines imposed are fair considering “the context” of Bet-at-home’s activities following the previous warnings. The website’s operators had been informed “on several occasions” of the rules and that their advertising activities would be monitored, the Kansspelautoriteit explained.A spokesperson for the Kansspelautoriteit added to “Terminating the offence is the primary goal at all times. The enforcement action is first and foremost a means aimed at ending the violation of the laws and regulations. By imposing a punitive sanction, future violations… can be prevented.”The watchdog is continuing to impose its authority on operators as the Dutch market prepares to open up.The Dutch parliament’s lower house approved a Remote Gambling Bill in 2016, which will introduce an online gambling licensing regime in the country.The bill requires approval from the Senate and licensing is not expected to commence until at least 2019.In the interim, the regulator has vowed to continue to implement enforcement measures against operators targeting Dutch players. As of June 1 last year, the Kansspelautoriteit said it would expand its approach to enforcement to pursue any operators that are “specifically and unequivocally” targeting the Dutch market.Ahead of the Fifa World Cup in Russia, the Kansspelautoriteit pledged to crack down on illegal online gambling activities by focusing on underage betting and identifying unlicensed operators offering betting to Dutch citizens during the tournament.The Kansspelautoriteit spokesperson added to that the watchdog would report on the outcome of this clampdown in relation to the World Cup following the conclusion of this year’s tournament. The final will take place on Sunday.last_img read more

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 6 of Super Rugby

first_imgWednesday Mar 25, 2015 The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 6 of Super Rugby Fox Sports have put together another segment of the Shortball, that gives fans a round-up of all the Super Rugby highlights from this past weekend. It was an eventful week in the Southern Hemisphere, with 26 tries in total, some great hits and even a few red cards to boot. The Hurricanes ran out on top of the Highlanders in a hard fought game in Dunedin, with All Black centre Ma’a Nonu putting in a few trademark tackles. This has put the Hurricanes into top spot, their best start to Super Rugby for quite some time.The Lions also had a taste of success, turning over the Rebels in Melbourne. Had the Rebels kicked their penalties the scoreline may have been different, but the Lions capitalised on second half mistakes, scored a late try and picked up their first win in Australia for some time.The Crusaders demolished the Cheetahs in a clinical second half display, scoring 8 tries in total. Dan Carter picked up a brace, Nemani Nadolo had the pick of the bunch though. The Giant Fijian winger kicked through without breaking stride, a sublime first touch, gathered and dotted down for 5 points. The major talking point of the weekend was in the Sharks vs Chiefs game, where 3 red cards were shown during the first 30 minutes. Bismarck du Plessis, Frans Steyn and Chiefs hooker Hika Elliott were all given their marching orders for various offences, Du Plessis’s being the most shocking. He has since been banned for 4 weeks, reduced from eight. Frans Steyn’s red card was rescinded after he was proven not guilty to a tip tackle offence, whilst Elliott’s no arms dangerous charge earned him a week on the sidelines.Chiefs captain Liam Messam was quick to defend the trio, claiming they ‘aren’t dirty players’, though he too was later cited for actions ‘contrary to good sportsmanship.’The footage of Du Plessis is clear as day, do you think 4 weeks is the right penalty?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Plays of the Week Related Articles 123 WEEKS AGO WATCH: France destroy Wales in Women’s Six… 138 WEEKS AGO Waikato winger scores four tries in epic… 304 WEEKS AGO The Wraparound from Rugby HQ – Week 27 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Is Saracens controversy a step closer to a ring-fenced Premiership?

first_imgWednesday Nov 6, 2019 Is Saracens controversy a step closer to a ring-fenced Premiership? Saracens’ 35 point deduction and £5.36m fine could see the European champions fighting for their survival in the Gallagher Premiership later this season.ADVERTISEMENTThe reigning Premiership champions were punished for failing to disclose player payments over the past three seasons and went to -26 points in the league on Tuesday. They appealed the decision shortly after and returned to fourth place, but could well see themselves at the foot of the table for much of the season if the appeal is not successful.While it was ten years ago that would have last seen Saracens relegated after being docked 35 points, this season could prove to be difficult. Many England players will not feature extensively after the Rugby World Cup, and in conjunction with what is looking to be a competitive season, it will be a mountain to climb to avoid dropping to the Championship.With Bath at the foot of the table currently and Leicester Tigers only one place above, Saracens could be thrown into a relegation scrap with them. Of course, after only three games this season it is hard to say who the relegation candidates are, but if last season is anything to go by, where Leicester finished 11th, some giants of English rugby could be fighting for survival.However, this is all the more reason why the Premiership may become ring-fenced.As Leicester, England’s biggest club historically, teetered on the brink of relegation last season, calls for ring-fencing the league only intensified. Those demands were suppressed for another year as the Newcastle Falcons went down instead. But if Saracens, the most successful English team in the professional era, face going down, this may cause the Rugby Football Union to shake things up.Many fans on social media feel this could be the case, as it would be disastrous for the national team if Saracens were to drop out of the top flight.ADVERTISEMENTThis was a hotly debated topic last season, with many advocates on both sides, but this sanction by Premiership Rugby has all but confirmed many fans’ suspicions that a new 13-team league could be in place next season to avoid the fallout of losing one of the giants of the game.This is what has been said:Guarantee the premiership will be ring-fenced at the end of the season.— E (@jeff_george2014) November 5, 2019ADVERTISEMENTThis is shocking on so many levels. It will be fascinating to see if @Saracens can stay up – last season this deduction wouldn’t have seen them relegated. The risk of losing Saracens/Leicester this year highlights that the Premiership 100% needs to be ring-fenced— Steve Birch (@Birchy_Steve) November 5, 2019Leicester, Bath and Saracens (after being docked 35 points) in the bottom 3…………… 100% the Premiership is getting ring fenced this season 😆😆— Ben Bourne (@BourneBen79) November 5, 2019Saracens to stay up, Falcons to be promoted… and then the Premiership to get ring fenced at the end of the season. #HeardItHereFirst #UnlessImWrong— Luke Walpole (@lukedwalpole) November 5, 2019No doubt @premrugby will be ring-fenced at the end of the season now. @Saracens going down would be hugely damaging for English rugby.— Analy-Rugby (@RugbyAnaly) November 5, 2019Wow… Seems like a case of about time really! I wonder what the odds are of the Prem being ring fenced this year 🤔— Tom Humphreys (@ThomosLuke) November 5, 2019There is a very real possibility that Saracens could win the Champions Cup this season, qualifying for the next campaign, whilst being relegated at the same time, which would create complications that have not been seen before.It is a permutation like this, and the questions regarding their England players and Academy if they drop to the Championship, that make a ring-fenced league a very real possibility if their points deduction stands.

On a beach of fine white sand next to the Mediterranean Sea and tucked into the coastline dunes, we come upon a house that was built 80 years ago by a Parisian mayor. This is the preexisting house of rectangular shape with a hip roof and a large enclosed courtyard facing the southeast. The original house pertains to a previous era marked by a sober, dark, and closed-in sensation that appears to not want to enjoy its Mediterranean surroundings. Its classic interior organization is built around a central hall running from east to west that distributes the bedrooms on either side, almost randomly, and positions the living room at the far eastern end of the house, as far away from the Mediterranean as possible although it is ostensibly so close.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoWhile the project includes a complete renovation of the house that will modernize it according to the ideals of function, construction, and technology, the main objective is to unify the elements. The house, dunes, beach and sea become one, with unsurpassable views, complete privacy, and respect and consideration of the adjacent properties. The Mediterranean sunlight and white limestone are the only materials that will be used. The house is slightly elevated above the land and appears to assert its influence over the surroundings. The northern wing of the house includes the night and service areas, and the master bedroom is in the northeast corner where it peeks out above the dunes into the infinite beyond of the Sea. The original central hallway and southern wing are combined to create a large open-plan space that includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room. All areas are open and receive excellent illumination from the extensive picture window whose eastern views merge with the southern patio and pool areas. The pool appears to be a continuous sheet of water defined by the background sea. It is protected from the strong breezes by a large glass frontal enclosure that also acts as a barrier from the exterior areas.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoExtending to the east along the entire length of the house is a large white porch connected by slim steel profiles that ensure unsurpassable views while easing the transition from the interior to the exterior areas. Between the porch and the pool deck, there is a large elevated wooden platform that serves as a terraced solarium, allowing its users to sit as if they were reigning over the sea below. The white exterior extends inwards to the interior vertical facings whose only interruptions are the wooden structures belonging to the kitchen and living room. These walls, exempt of any shelving or storage, embrace and conceal the original structure of the house. The continuous stone pavement from the interior to the exterior and reaching the pool area reaches out towards the beach and dunes. The continuous white ceilings contain the heating and cooling installations and the indirect illumination, and audiovisual and sound systems. Architecture encompasses the strong environmental values of light, views, breezes, the sound of the waves, etc. and uses them as primary materials in this new construction that unifies the house, dunes, beach, and the Mediterranean Sea into one solid element.Save this picture!© Adrián Mora MarotoProject gallerySee allShow lessApartamento Umami / Semerene Arquitetura InteriorSelected ProjectsLoja Coletiza / Solo ArquitetosSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

The Georgian interior ministry said he was detained by airport border guards, not the police, at Interpol’s request.Reporters Without Borders is pleased that he has not been extradited to Tajikistan, where he has been the victim of political persecution.—–20.08.2013 – Tajik opposition journalist detained on Interpol warrant in GeorgiaReporters Without Borders calls on the Georgian authorities to quickly release Dodojon Atovulloyev, a well-known Tajik journalist and government opponent who was detained shortly after landing at Tbilisi airport at 3:40 p.m. today. Atovulloyev says the Georgian police arrested him on an Interpol warrant.“Under no circumstances should Atovulloyev be handed over to the Tajik authorities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Germany has granted him refugee status. His enforced return to Tajikistan would violate the international convention on refugee rights.“The Tajik government has for years been using all kinds of means to get its hands on this journalist. The arrest warrant that it apparently sent to Interpol is just its latest scheme.”A leading opponent of President Emomali Rakhmon’s government, Atovulloyev is also the founder and editor of the Tajik monthly Charogi Ruz (Daylight), independent Tajikistan’s first privately-owned newspaper, which is well-known for its fierce criticism of the regime. Atovulloyev fled Tajikistan in 1993 after receiving death threats and being the repeated target of judicial proceedings.Persecution of the government’s opponents in exile has been growing in the run-up to presidential elections scheduled for November. Umarali Quvvatov was briefly detained in Dubai last December. Former Prime Minister Abdumalik Abdullajanov was arrested in Kiev in February, while Atovulloyev survived a murder attempt in Moscow in January 2012.Last month, Atovulloyev was denied entry to Russia, where Charogi Ruz is now produced. The media recently reported that pressure was being put on his 83-year-old mother in an attempt to force him to return to Tajikistan.Atovulloyev nowadays hosts a weekly programme on K+, an independent Central Asian TV station, which has raised his profile in Tajikistan even more.“My K+ programme is really irritating the Rakhmon government,” he told Reporters Without Borders by phone. “I am currently at the airport but I am being treated well. I cannot complain about the Georgian police, who are just doing their duty as regards Georgia’s membership of Interpol.”More background on Dodojon Atovulloyev News GeorgiaEurope – Central Asia June 18, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

The grant is made possible by PTA Proud National Sponsors NortonLifeLock & TikTok. The Smart Talk is a free, fun, interactive tool created by National PTA and NortonLifeLock that helps families set tech ground rules together. Using guided questions, the easy-to-use tool addresses privacy, screen time, social media etiquette, app usage, texting and calling to create a customized agreement that families can print and sign.“Offerings like The Smart Talk are part of our association’s long-standing efforts to support the health, safety, well-being and long-term success of every child through family and community education,” said Leslie Boggs, president of National PTA. “Our mission is more important than ever as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. We are pleased to provide Marshall Fundamental PTSA with resources to empower their work.”With the grant, Marshall Fundamental PTSA will invite the entire school community to participate the Smart Talk program. By offering this program, the PTSA seeks to provide a free and fun resource to families to improve the mental and emotional health for their children and themselves. The PTSA will incentive participation by offering prizes to everyone who completes the program.“Families and especially children are connected to the digital world more than ever, especially because of the increased time spent at home during the pandemic,” said David Way, treasurer of Marshall Fundamental PTSA. “Unfortunately, many parents and children are unaware of the risks and dangers or they have underestimated the potential negative impacts. This grant will help families protect their relationships by creating a space and forum to discuss the issues surrounding the digital world. It will help families develop healthy boundaries together and educate them on what is safe and what is not. These conversations can help improve mental health by giving children the support they need to cope with social media issues.”The grant is part of National PTA’s PTA Connected initiative and the association’s new PTA Programs at Home models. National PTA launched its PTA Connected initiative in 2018 to formalize and build on its work in the digital space in response to the growing needs and interest of parents nationwide. PTA Connected is designed to educate and engage families in digital wellness, security, access, equity and literacy. To date, over $750,000 in funding has been awarded to PTAs to host PTA Connected events with over 500 PTA Connected events across the country, reaching over 25,000 families. NortonLifeLock is the presenting and founding sponsor of PTA Connected and collaborated with National PTA to build The Smart Talk tool.In response to our changing world, National PTA developed at-home models as alternatives for in-person PTA Connected and Smart Talk Conversation community events. The PTA Programs at Home models offer engaging, educational and fun activities for all students and their families.“National PTA developed its PTA Programs at Home models to provide all PTAs the opportunity to offer programming in new, exciting formats that increase accessibility for families—regardless of whether their school community is learning from home, in the school building or in a hybrid model,” added Nathan R. Monell, CAE, National PTA Executive Director. “National PTA and PTAs nationwide remain committed to supporting families and school communities, making sure they have what they need during this challenging time and helping all children realize their full potential.”Marshall Fundamental School, 990 N.

So, if it’s 28 years left on your mortgage, somewhere out there, 28 years from now if you don’t move, you don’t pay off your mortgage, or something like that doesn’t go on, you’ll have to make up the three payments that you made up in the summer here,” Moynihan said. He added the idea of deferring the payment is to “defer the impact.” He also said the main key of the recently-passed $2.2 trillion CARES Act is to make sure money stays in the hands of people so they live and continue paying their bills. “The other question is, I think incumbent upon employers like us, is keep the people employed, keep paying them—they should be able to pay their bills,” he said. Moynihan put the half a million homeowners helped into perspective, saying Bank of America has 66 million customers. However, he noted there are still many people working and able to pay their bills. “They’re still working, and they should pay their bills, would be my advice to the people, not only to a policy question but also the fiscal management question. So, we’re working with people who are losing their jobs. We have to preserve the ability to have cash flow,” Moynihan said. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced a tailored set of mortgage relief options for homeowners with FHA-insured mortgages who have been impacted by COVID-19. HUD states, effective immediately for those who cannot make mortgage payments due to the virus, servicers must extend deferred or reduced mortgage payment options for up to six and also provide an additional six months of forbearance if requested by the borrower. This measure implements provisions contained in the CARES Act signed by President Donald Trump on March 27. “The last thing any of us wants is for Americans to lose their homes unnecessarily while we continue to fight this invisible enemy. If you’re struggling, immediate help is now available. The FHA will continue to work with stakeholders to ensure that the loss mitigation options that are offered for both forward and reverse borrowers are appropriately tailored for the present situation,” said Dr. Benjamin Carson, Secretary of HUD.  Home / Daily Dose / BofA CEO Talks Response to COVID-19 Bank of America coroanvirus Mortgage Forbearance 2020-04-03 Mike Albanese Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Mike Albanese in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
