Virginia sports betting bill clears Senate

first_img Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 6th February 2019 | By contenteditor The Virginia Senate has passed a bill that could lead to the legalisation of sports betting and also permit land-based casinos to open for the first time in the state.SB 1126, introduced by Democrat Senator Louise Lucas, has already cleared the Senate Committee on General Laws and has now passed the Senate by a vote of 28-12.Following this approval, the bill will head to the House today (February 6) for a first reading before being referred to the Committee on Rules for further discussion.SB 1126 set out plans to legalise casino gaming in the state, with casinos to be restricted to cities that have an unemployment rate of at least 4%, a poverty rate of 20%, and which had experienced a population decline of at least 7% between 1990 and 2016.Each city would be able to issue one casino licence, with a tribal casino permitted in cities with a population of at least 200,000, and in which 24% of all real estate are exempt from local property taxes. In order to open a casino, each local authority would need to secure approval from residents via a local referendum.The licensed casinos would be able to offer table, dice and slot games, as well as sports betting. However, there are now measures in the bill that would allow for online gaming or wagering.The Virginia Lottery Board would be responsible for regulating the market.Casino venues would pay a tax of 10% of gross revenue, with takings divided between a number of causes. These would include the State General Fund and new entities the Virginia Public School Construction Grants Program and Fund and the Problem Gambling Treatment and Support Fund, which would be established under the bill.Some tax revenue would also go to the State Local Casino Gaming Proceeds Fund, which will be established through the act to ensure local authorities benefit from the casinos. The cities in which venues are based will also receive a share.SB 1126 is one of seven sports betting bills that have been put forward in Virginia in the 2019 legislative session. Last week, Senator Chapman Peterson introduced SB 1238 while Senator Frank Wagner submitted SB 1256.SB 1238 calls for the establishment of the Virginia Sports Betting Department and to authorise the new organisation to regulate land-based sports betting only.Meanwhile, SB 1356 also calls for the legalisation of sports betting, with plans to rename the Virginia Lottery Board as the Virginia Lottery and Sports Wagering Commission and allow it to establish a digital platform for wagering.Image: Famartin Regions: US Virginia Virginia sports betting bill clears Senatecenter_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address SB 1126, a bill that would legalise sports betting and allow land-based casinos to open in Virginia, has been passed by the state’s Senate.

Unsung heroes from the English season

first_imgCaptain marvel: Stuart Hooper led the Saxons and has made the ninth-most Premiership appearancesRecognised by those on the inside as an outstanding leader, Hooper’s presence might just have been what was missing as Bath failed to qualify for the Champions Cup. Mike Ford could do with finding another player like the 34-year-old if his team are to make an assault on the top four again next year, when Hooper will be on the coaching staff.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here. Don ArmandThe Harare-born back-rower – six, seven or eight makes no difference – has played in 24 of Exeter’s 29 games this season and although Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Thomas Waldrom have hogged the headlines, he’s one of the players whose name should be in lights too.Signed from the Stormers in 2013, Armand also did a few turns in the second row last season for the Chiefs and the 27-year-old has had a staggering season this time around in a back row that also has to fit in the likes of Dave Ewers and Julian Salvi.He featured in the top rankings for tackling and carrying in the Premiership season and was named Player of the Year by the Exeter Chiefs Supporters’ Club. While we’re at Sandy Park, an honourable mention must go to Robin Cowling, the former England prop, for the work he has done bringing a pile of Chiefs through to the highest level.Steve DiamondSale’s director of rugby will probably not be getting any gongs when the end-of-season awards are handed out. But with all the attention on Saracens, Exeter and Wasps, his side flew under the radar and back into the Champions Cup. And look at some of the clubs who didn’t make it to the European big time.Jewel of the North: Steve Diamond beats the odds time and again with his Sale side (Getty Images)Diamond doesn’t have a bottomless pit of cash, Sale apparently spend under the salary cap, and it’s a fight to get players to the club. But for next season he has secured the services of Mike Phillips, Rob Webber, Kieran Longbottom and league superstar Josh Charnley.The battle he faces every year is shown by the fact that Danny Cipriani and Tommy Taylor are off to Wasps, but Sale will be punching above their weight again – just like Diamond did when he was a combative hooker for the club. He also brought Mike Haley, his full-back, to Eddie Jones’s attention and the likes of Will Addison and Sam James are not a million miles away.Alex LewingtonPlaying in a team that finishes stone-last isn’t the best way to get on the right side of the national coach but Eddie Jones knows his onions and picked Lewington for his training camp in Brighton ahead of the Wales Test match. Lewington, who joined London Irish from Leicester in 2013, scored six tries in his last nine starts of the season in all competitions – in a side that had a gun pressed against its head.Saxons call? Alex Lewington caught Eddie Jones’s eye after shining for struggling London Irish (Getty)The 24-year-old played in England’s non-cap game against the Barbarians last year, coming off the bench, and it wouldn’t be any surprise to see him off to South Africa with the Saxons this summer. Would probably do himself a favour if he wasn’t playing in the Championship next season, though.Christian DayThe lock played 26 games for Northampton as they failed to make the play-offs but secured a place in next year’s Champions Cup. Good in the scrum and the lineout, he’s never far off the action but rarely gets the plaudits handed out to Saints’ brigade of internationals.However, a lot of Day’s most important work comes off the pitch in his role as chairman of the Rugby Players’ Association, where he has to bat for the blokes who actually do the business on the pitch. Player welfare is top of his agenda but drugs, preparing players for life after rugby and the concussion debate are all in his in-tray and being looked at.A cut above the rest: Christian Day is a rock for Saints and works tirelessly for player welfare (Getty Images)He has to play most weeks as well and he does a pretty good job of it. It has been said if you want something done then get a busy man to do it. Day is a busy man alright and is trying to get things done for the sake of his fellow players on top of the day job.Stuart HooperNot even close to a cigar for Bath this year after a miserable season was capped off with the retirement of their club captain Hooper. The second-row only started 11 games before he had to quit in April with a back injury and received a few plaudits then. But in a career of 232 Premiership appearances for Saracens, Leeds and Bath he didn’t get the praise he deserved, although he did captain the Saxons in 2009.

Maro Itoje Shows Off His Basketball Skills

first_img 2019 Six Nations Team of the Tournament The Six Nations changes nothing heading into the World Cup Maro Itoje Shows Off His Basketball SkillsEngland and Saracens man Maro Itoje has shown he is more than capable with any ball in sport, regardless of its shape or size.Appearing on the Rugby Tonight show Itoje went up against former England World Cup winner Ben Kay in a shooting competition.After making two shots each, Itoje stepped up the difficulty moving to a spot in the studio that would have probably been even further than the three-point line in professional basketball. This didn’t matter though as he cooly banked his shot in before Kay missed.

Curry is famous for his long-range shooting and has helped revolutionise the game somewhat so Itoje’s comment paying homage comes as no surprise.

After a disastrous home World Cup in 2015,… Steph Curry with the Shot boyyyyy— Maro Itoje (@maroitoje) April 3, 2019Itoje has always shown a deep interest in basketball even as a schoolboy. He played at the national level for his boarding school, St Georges along with shot-put.He has also gone to NBA games when they were hosted in London, most recently he was pictured outside the O2 Arena where he watched the New York Knicks go up against the Washington Wizards.NBA Fan: Itoje goes to the London NBA games in January (Getty Images)No doubt with the conclusion of the Six Nations, Itoje’s focus will be back on domestic rugby as Saracen’s are into the last four of the Heineken Champions Cup In the last round they smashed Glasgow and will face Munster who narrowly beat Edinburgh. In the other semi-final Leinster will host Toulouse who somehow beat Racing 92 despite playing most of the match with 14 men.

Landmark Preservation Versus Ownership

first_imgShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!House VI / Peter Eisenman © madrid2008-09.blogspot.comThe story of Wright’s house is just one of many. Frank Bernstein relates the different ways in which residents of these homes and the architects may react to their potential demolition. In the case of House VI, Eisenman appears to be resigned to the home’s potential fate, which is fair tp the present owners of the house who do not want to restrict their sales prospects by setting up a landmark easement. In contrast, the Vanna Venturi House by Robert Venturi will be renovated before it is sold to prolong its preservation, an effort that has turned into a collaboration between present owner and architect.Ultimately, these houses are private property, commissioned by private clients with the architects of their choosing. At what point does that level of ownership transition into the public realm? At what point does the public have jurisdiction over the house’s fate? This can lead us into even more questions concerning what an architect has copyright to – the drawings, concepts, sketches, materials, process, final product? Which part of it is owned by the client, by the architect, by the contractor, or by the party that eventually buys the property and who ultimately decides its fate? via Arch RecordLibeskind Selected to Design Ohio Statehouse Holocaust MemorialArticlesA Crash Course on Modern Architecture (Part 1)Architecture News Share CopyAfter years of disconcerting reports that the historic David and Gladys Wright House by Frank Lloyd Wright was under threat of demolition by developers, we announced that a generous benefactor saved it from its fate by providing funds to buy back the property. It seems that this particular story is not unique. An article on ArchRecord by Frank A. Bernstein lists several other modern architecture treasures that may soon fall under the same threat as they hit the real estate market.Find out more after the break. Save this picture!David and Gladys Wright House / Frank Lloyd Wright; Courtesy of Time, Inc. via the Frank Lloyd Wright News BlogWhose responsibility is it to preserve and maintain these homes? Is this a societal pursuit made by arbitrary distinctions on what most deserves our attention? In the aforementioned case of the David and Gladys Wright house by Frank Lloyd Wright, the granddaughters of the renowned architect sold their home into the hands of developers that had no intention of preserving the house. The property was eventually bought by a benefactor that donated it to a preserving agency after the architecture community and Landmark Preservation Council spurred interest in its preservation.

Howard Foundation deadline

Tagged with: Ireland  44 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Katharine Howard Foundation (KHF), an independent grant-making Foundation in Ireland whose particular emphasis is on the support of community projects and initiatives, has set 28th September as its next deadline for applications. Applications will be considered from both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.The Foundation supports organisations and projects related to work in disadvantaged areas throughout Ireland, with Co. Wexford and South Wicklow (where the late Katherine Howard lived) given particular consideration.The Trustees are keen to support the formation and development of community groups by those who live in the area, especially where this will lead to building co-operation and community spirit at a local level. KHF concentrates on giving a small grant to projects where it will make an impact and the Foundation therefore looks favourably towards start-up projects and to those that might be co-funded from other sources. They are also interested in projects that seek to learn the lessons arising from their work and that involve themselves in informing policy at a local and national level. Advertisement Funding for research studies that aim to produce positive recommendations for improving the quality of life of disadvantaged sections of the community will also be considered through the General Grant applications. The Foundation is particularly interested in co-funding action research projects that link to early intervention and family support in disadvantaged areas.Applications will be considered for Projects supporting:— Families — Children and young people — People with disabilities — Older people — Refugee and asylum seekers Project must be community based and involve the targeted group in their design and management Grants are normally in the range ‚€500 – ‚€2,500. In the case of research projects, grants will depend on various factors, including the amount of co-funding secured. Normally grants are once off. However the Trustees are willing to consider an annual grant over two or three years where that is seen to be a more effective use of funding.

The group represents the first mission to Cuba funded by the soybean checkoff since The U.S. first began normalizing trade relations with the country earlier this year. U.S. Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack said the U.S. Department of Agriculture will allow 22 industry-funded ag research and promotion programs to conduct research and analysis activities in Cuba. Since limited ag trade with Cuba was first permitted in 2000, the country is now the fourth biggest export market for American poultry products. The Cuban poultry and egg industries also consume more than half of the soybean meal produced in America. The delegation will meet with soybean, poultry, and egg industry representatives to get a better feel for the food distribution system in Cuba and to talk about biosecurity, food safety, and nutrition issues. The delegation also includes representatives from U.S. poultry and egg companies, cold storage and logistics providers, export companies, and shipping lines.Source: NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Poultry and Soy Groups in Cuba This Week Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Sep 28, 2016 last_img read more

US — #WeeklyAddress: September 24 – September 30: President Trump denounces press as ‘fake news media’ at West Virginia rally

first_img April 28, 2021 Find out more President Trump accuses media of falsely reporting on assault allegations against him and calls reporters ‘fake’ News MANDEL NGAN / AFP NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say President Trump denounces press as ‘fake news media’ at West Virginia rallyPresident Donald Trump denounced the press as “fake news” and journalists as “disgraceful political hacks” at a rally in Wheeling, West Virginia on September 29. He aired these criticisms against the press for its coverage of his June summit with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un and even pointed to the reporters in the arena. Attendees then began to chant “CNN sucks” when Trump referred to the press as the “enemy of the people,” as he has done before. “They report incorrect news. They report phony news,” he added. “When I say and come out with very, very strong statements about the media, I’m talking about the fake news media…” The president’s continual efforts to denounce the media and single our reporters at rallies has led to harassment and threats of violence, prompting some journalists and media organizations to heighten security and hire guards for reporters who cover the Trump administration. The United States ranks 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.
