NSW issues consumer warning over illegal gambling websites

first_imgLegal & compliance The New South Wales (NSW) Office of Responsible Gambling (ORG) has urged consumers in the Australian state not to use unlicensed overseas gambling sites, warning that players are at high risk of not seeing their money again.ORG director Natalie Wright said with many sports suspended or cancelled, and pubs, clubs and casinos temporarily closed as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, there is a risk people will turn to unregulated sites.However, as these websites are not licensed, they do not operate in line with NSW regulations, which both Wright and the ORG said leaves players at risk of losing money and not being protected against gambling-related harm.“Overseas gambling websites are illegal in Australia, and people who use them face additional risks than when they gamble with a licensed Australian operator,” Wright said.“Some of these sites look legitimate, and they even look like they are Australian by using images such as the Australian flag and native animals. These sites are illegal under the Commonwealth Interactive Gambling Act 2001, and because they’re not regulated, there are no safeguards to protect people.”The Act permits the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to request internet service providers to block overseas gambling sites operating illegally in Australia to help protect players.Such websites can offer gambling including casino-style games, slot machines, scratchcards, betting on the outcome of lotteries or keno, in-play sports betting and other wagering services not licensed by an Australian state or territory.“For people that do want to gamble online, you should only use services licensed in Australia, as there are consumer safeguards in place and responsible gambling options, such as the ability to set time and expenditure limits,” Wright said.In February, the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority convicted Ladbrokes Australia and Neds of illegal gambling marketing activities in the state, issuing the two operators with a record fine of AUD$207,500 (£108,853/€124,854/US$135,770), the highest ever levied in NSW.According to Liquor & Gaming NSW, the GVC-owned brands breached regulations by running inducements to gamble to NSW residents.

Lions watch: Five Wallabies to watch in Super Rugby

first_imgLuke Jones, 21 (Melbourne Rebels)Headlines in Melbourne tend to be reserved for Kurtley Beale and James O’Connor, while Wales’ own Gareth Delve is the serious, brooding face of the franchise. Yet there are a few ripples of excited pub-talk about a hard-grafting second-row, with the engine of a blindside and the appetite of a young (or old) Nathan Sharpe.Can the 6ft 6in, 17st Jones fill the old fella’s boots?Hugh McMeniman, 29 (Western Force)Sure, he’s no spring chicken and he returnes to Australia after three years in Japan, but already the hardy McMeniman is being whispered about as a returnee for the national side.Comeback Clyde: Rathbone is up to old tricks as a BrumbieThe lock-cum-flanker is rugged and experienced and is rested for the opener, as is the ‘Honey Badger’ Nick Cummins, but Force head coach Michael Foley has publicly stated that he can rely on the 21-time Wallaby come what may. McMeniman would at least welcome the opportunity to take up Sharpe’s mantle.Clyde Rathbone, 31 (Brumbies)You want a comeback story? Sure you do. Well feast your eyes on the latest incarnation of Clyde Rathbone.He was ravaged by injury and fell into well-documented bouts of depression that almost made a rugby return impossible. He retired. He was shot. In his own words, he spent three years bloated in a ‘dark place’. All eyes on me: Israel Folau is billed as the saviour of the NSW Waratahs and a potential Wallaby this summer By Alan DymockTHIS WEEKEND sees the start of the 2013 Super Rugby season with two all-Australian affairs. The Melbourne Rebels host the Western Force on Friday morning and the Brumbies host the Queensland Reds on Saturday.Lean and mean: Young Rebel Luke JonesThe Aussies are starting earlier than the rest with a week’s extra preparation scheduled before the Lions visit this summer. However, with Warren Gatland watching the whole competition with the intensity of a Where’s Wally world champion, there may be a few surprise performers who catch, and more pertinently worry, his eye.Israel Folau, 23 (NSW Waratahs) Izzy has tried more codes than a hapless safe cracker. Okay, maybe I’m exaggering, but the winger is tall, fast and gifted with the jumping ability of a particularly frightened frog.Many are backing the former league and Aussie rules player to be the saviour of Tahs rugby, and alongside fellow signing Matt Hooper, he is expected to be a Wallaby by the time the Lions land.Two things are for sure: he likes scoring tries and he is more than willing to pluck them out of the air.Matt Toomua, 23 (Brumbies)Billed as the next big thing at fly-half, Toomua is the playmaker for this year’s Brumbies.Fans are aflutter after looking at the makeup of Jake White’s side, with David Pocock signing up to support him and the much-vaunted centre Christian Lealiifano playing outside him at centre.Toomua is a possible answer to a Quade-shaped question. He can kick for goal and will attack the line if the moment presents itself, even though he may seem a bit too gung-ho. Nevertheless, fighting back from a serious knee injury shows that he is willing to keep giving it a lash: a trait the Aussies love. Having worked himself back into shape, though, he is back. He may not be nailed-on for a return to the Australia side, but at least he is in a fine fettle and the game is undoubtedly delighted to have him back.With 26 caps, he has class, too. In fact, it could be dangerous having such a seasoned campaigner smashing lines off of Messrs Toomua and Lealiifano. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – FEBRUARY 08: Clyde Rathbone of the Brumbies scores a try during the Super Rugby trial match between the Brumbies and the ACT XV at Viking Park on February 8, 2013 in Canberra, Australia.

Arnold Palmer dies at 87

TAGSArnold Palmer Previous articleZika – The Top 8 MythsNext articleApopka firefighters qualify for World Competition Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Charismatic golfing legend dies in Pittsburgh Arnold Palmer, a seven-time major winner who brought golf to the masses and became the most beloved figure in the game, died Sunday, a source close to the family confirmed. He was 87. The right man at the right time, Arnold Palmer transformed an entire sport and, along the way, became an American legend. Palmer, one of the most famous athletes on the planet and a friend to presidents, kings, and movie stars, died Sunday at the age of 87. Palmer, the son of a Pennsylvania country club greenskeeper, learned the sport of golf as a youth and perfected his game while at Wake Forest. He turned pro in 1955, winning a tournament in his first year as a professional, and three years later won the Masters. Six of Palmer’s seven major wins came in a short period, from 1960 to 1964, but that happened to be the exact moment when televised sports first became a national obsession. Palmer’s good looks, humble origins, cheerful demeanor and on-course success combined to make him an early favorite of viewing audiences, and “Arnie’s Army” turned out in force wherever he played. Palmer’s battles with Jack Nicklaus were instant legend, a rivalry that blossomed into a friendship lasting more than half a century. Along with Gary Player, the men created the foundation for modern golf, and remained connected, visible and vibrant long after their playing days were done. Palmer was one of the first sports figures to create a vibrant off-course empire. In addition to the products he endorsed – everything from tractors to the famous “Arnold Palmer” drink – Palmer oversaw a thriving course design business and helped found The Golf Channel. Generations of golfers, from world-class pros to weekend hackers, owe Palmer a debt of gratitude. He was a singular force in American sports, and he’ll be deeply missed.Golfweek Magazine and Yahoo News contributed to this report.

In this case, the idea is to transform the conflict of shapes into visual pressing – not only recreating 1-2 houses but rebuilding a sense of the village’s spirit (with the ambition to spread this compressed model around).Save this picture!© Trieu ChienThe blocks with sloping roofs are separated & buckled into different directions (in order to create vivid images with non-large volumes), and freely arranged around the wide yard in front of the worshiping hall. Multi-directional, multi-central elliptical patio and eaves create a soft connection, turning the opposition into a dialogue.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienGrandparents need quietness but are carefully arranged to be together with the grandchildren who are always active to have more chance for interaction between generations – also to give the parents on the other side certain independence. Exciting corners stimulates children to explore.

The courtyard is paved according to the different patterns of the old village roads; tiles were manually produced to allow moss to grow.

DSC publishes toolkit to monitor Charity Commission’s political independence

first_img Tagged with: Charity Commission Directory of Social Change politics The Directory of Social Change has created a toolkit to help monitor the Charity Commission’s political independence and guard against encroachment on its decision-making.DSC says it has launched the toolkit, called Three Pillars of Independence, in response to the concerns seen over the party-political bias of the previous Charity Commission Chair William Shawcross, and the subsequent appointment of Conservative Peer Baroness Stowell to replace him, which was against the unanimous advice of a parliamentary scrutiny committee and charities.It believes there are three key factors to consider when it comes to the Charity Commission: independence from party politics, from populism and also from the press. The document explains each of these and why they matter, setting out the principles and context, and gives a list of practical questions, which anyone can ask to assess whether the charity regulator is indeed acting independently.DSC’s Director of Policy and Research, Jay Kennedy said:“Recent governments have sought leverage over the Charity Commission via the appointments process. To anyone paying attention it’s obvious that relevant administrative expertise, experience of charities, or knowledge of charity law has been secondary to other considerations. This is a deeply disturbing trend.“Charity trustees need confidence that their regulator is operating in an objective way, based on the law and evidence, not unduly influenced by political rhetoric or press hyperbole. We’ve published this toolkit as a bulwark to support the Commission’s independence and confidence in its legally-binding judgments. We encourage others to use it, and hope it makes the job easier for everybody in the sector and beyond.”The full toolkit, Three Pillars of Independence, can be found on the Directory of Social Change’s website.

Hedgehog populations have declined by half in rural areas and by a third in urban ones in the last 20 years so they need all the help they can get.

RSF urges concrete measures to protect journalists in Afghanistan

first_img The June violence began with the deaths of US photographer David Gilkey and his interpreter, Afghan journalist Zabihullah Tamanna, in a Taliban attack in southern Afghanistan on 5 June .But it is not just media freedom’s obvious enemies – the Taliban and Islamic State – who are responsible for violence against the media in Afghanistan. The police, intelligence services and local politicians have also contributed to the surge in violence, censorship and self-censorship.When three almost simultaneous bombings in Kabul on 21 June killed at least 23 people including 14 Nepalese and Indian citizens, journalists who were dispatched to the scene were the targets of aggression by policemen and intelligence officials. Most were insulted and several were beaten, including Ghazi Rasouli, a journalist with Afghanistan’s TV1, Khajeh Tofigh Sedighi of Afghanistan’s TV24 and Shamariz, a cameraman working for an international TV channel.Kefayatalah Saimi, a journalist with privately-owned Norin TV, was beaten by the bodyguards of the governor of the northern province of Badakhshan on 12 June. He said he was attacked for no apparent reason. One of the governor’s close associates denied that there was any physical violence but accused Saimi of speaking to the bodyguards in an inappropriate manner.In Jalalabad, the headquarters of Radio Enekas (which means “reflection” in Dari) and Cable TV Networks were bombed on the night of 7 June. Three powerful bombs were used but only two exploded and police defused the third. Journalists at the two media outlets, which are still broadcasting, said the blasts caused a great deal of damage but no injuries. No group claimed responsibility.There have been armed attacks on media outlets in Jalalabad for the past year. The regional bureaux of the independent Afghan news agency Pajhwok and US government-funded Voice of America were targeted on 12 June 2015. The building that houses Radio Safa, a local station, and the regional office of Radio Killid was targeted by a homemade bomb that destroyed the main door and part of a wall on the night of 10 October 2015.These attacks were not claimed but there had been threats against several media outlets and journalists by Islamic State, which is present in the region.Police attacked Radio Kavoon Gar director Mohammad Golab Ibrahimi in Mahtarlam, in the eastern province of Laghman, on 7 June when he tried to cover the distribution of Qatari aid to the local population for the month of Ramadan. Although he showed his press card and explained why he was there, the police roughed him up and broke his camera.BBC journalist Nemat Kryab was just passing though Jalalabad, in the eastern province of Nangarhar, on 29 may when he was arrested by members of the National Directorate of Security (NDS) and was held for two days. The governor’s spokesman, Atololah Koghani, confirmed that the NDS interrogated him but gave no further details.RSF also condemns irresponsible comments by politicians such as Amrolah Saleh, a former intelligence chief and current president of the Ravand Sabaz party, who in a Facebook post accused the independent news agency Pajhwok of taking government money and insinuated that it was being manipulated by the intelligence services.In a country where the Taliban and other armed groups are quick to kill journalists suspected of being government supporters, such an accusation is utterly irresponsible. Criticism of the media should of course be permitted and it can encourage them in their work and adherence to journalistic ethics. State subsidies for media outlets can also be criticized but, as many democracies show, subsidies in themselves are not evidence of manipulation. In such a critical situation as Afghanistan’s, the priority should be journalists’ safety.“These criminal attacks on the media are indicative of a desire on the part of media freedom’s various predators to impose a climate of terror in Afghanistan,” said Réza Moïni, the head of RSF’s Iran-Afghanistan’s desk.“Such violence endangers the right of journalists to inform the Afghan people. The police and security services have a duty to protect journalists and media outlets. We call on President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and the information and culture minister to take concrete measures to end this violence, including the police violence.”L’Afghanistan est classé 120éme sur 180 dans le Classement mondial de la liberté de la presse 2016 établi par Reporters sans frontières.

Al-Lami was previously the target of a murder attempt in September 2008, when a dynamite charge was set off outside the building that houses the union.In Basra, two men on a motorcycle – one in a policeman’s uniform and one in civilian dress – threw a grenade into the garden of Al-Ahmed’s home on 17 March, seriously injuring his brother’s daughter but no one else. The target was clearly Al-Ahmed himself, who is the manager of radio Sindibad and editor of the independent weekly Al-Amani.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned that the Basra press is currently refusing to cover the activities of the US and British military forces in protest against the way soldiers manhandled journalists during a news conference at which work permits were supposed to have been issued. A number of journalists were detained for several hours after the incident. A US military spokesman has sent a letter of apology to the Basra media. December 16, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
