Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 29th May 2020 | By contenteditor Scottish Racing has announced that horse racing in the country will resume behind closed doors from 22 June, following a period of suspension due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.All races will take place in accordance with the Scottish government’s route map for exiting lockdown, with Scottish Racing to hold talks with the government to ensure the safe running of races.All racing in Great Britain was suspended on 18 March after initial plans to race behind closed doors were abandoned.A provisional fixture list published by Scottish Racing shows racing will resume with a meeting at Ayr on 22 June, with racing to follow at Hamilton Park on 24 and 28 June, as well as a meeting at Musselburgh on 30 June.A further 11 meetings are planned for July across Ayr, Musselburgh, Hamilton Park and Perth, while nine events are set to take place across the four venues in August.Scottish Racing said all meetings would adhere to the specific guidelines set out by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) last week. These include a list of people allowed to attend meetings as well as rules on screening, social distancing and the usage of personal protective equipment.The guidelines were developed in consultation with officials from Public Health England and a group of cross-sport chief medical officers, and drawn up under the direction of the BHA’s chief medical advisor, Dr Jerry Hill.Confirmation of the return of Scottish Racing comes after the BHA last week also published a provisional fixture schedule for June, July and August, as English racecourses prepare to resume races from 1 June.Plans are also in place for Welsh racing to restart, though the race programme and fixture list will only be confirmed following further consultation with the Welsh government.

Delaware sports betting revenue slumps to $12k in July

Sports wagering revenue in Delaware reached just $12,114 (£9,163/€10,233) in July, in the first figures released by the Delaware Lottery since March, due to disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Revenue was down 97.6% from $507,410 in July last year, and also 97.9% lower than in March of this year – the last time retail sportsbooks were operational in the state.As Delaware only permits land-based sports betting, the temporary closure of all retail locations from mid-March meant it the state did not generate any sports wagering revenue during the past few months.Dover Downs and Harrington Raceway have now reopened their sportsbooks and were operational in July, but the retail facility at Delaware Park remained closed during the month and will not resume operations until August 30.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Rev. Isaiah Chambala (Kiteto), the Rt. Rev. Tim Stevens (Leicester), the Rt. Rev. Stanley Hotay (Mount Kilimanjaro), the Rt. Rev. Gnanamuthu “Paul” Vasanthakumar (Trichy-Tanjore), and the Rt. Rev. John Smylie (Wyoming) studied Scripture, reflected, worshipped, and experienced life in Trichy-Tanjore through visits to churches, temples, schools, and hospitals.“All of these ingredients helped forge strong working relationships in an atmosphere of generous hospitality”The bishops issued a joint statement from the 2014 gathering, which reads in part, “All of these ingredients helped forge strong working relationships in an atmosphere of generous hospitality from the Trichy-Tanjore diocese. This landmark meeting of Bishops from four continents was found, by all participants, to be enriching, inspiring and, by turns, challenging. [It was] a time of sensing the movement of the Holy Spirit and a model in microcosm of the Anglican Communion at work across widely varied cultures and contexts.”They also developed affirmations, commitments, and resolutions detailing their hopes, plans, and steps in nurturing the Companion Links relationship. The list of these items is below.The bishops met again in April and May of 2015 in Jerusalem, their focus being the continued development of their relationships and the connections between their dioceses. Their coming together also functions to model the idea of embracing “difference without division” within the Anglican Communion.The joint statement issued from the 2015 meeting expresses the bishops’ pledge to work together and disallow differences to inhibit their common goal to spread faith through ministry.In May of 2016 the bishops came together for a third time in Leicester, England, for the installation and seating of the Rt. Rev. Martyn Snow, who succeeded the Rt. Rev. Tim Stevens, as the bishop of Leicester.This year, the Diocese of Wyoming will host all the bishops of the Companion Links Dioceses at the end of August and into September. They will reunite in Casper, Wyoming, and travel together to Cody, Wyoming. Bishop Hotay will give a presentation at the Diocese of Wyoming’s annual clergy spouse conference regarding the strong growth experienced within the Diocese of Mount Kilimanjaro.While in Cody, the group will stay at Thomas the Apostle Center, a diocesan retreat facility. The Rev. Dr. Suresh Kumar of the Diocese of Trichy-Tanjore and the Very. Rev. Lori Modesitt of the Diocese of Wyoming will be facilitators for the group.The group will attend a local rodeo and visit Yellowstone National Park, but the primary objective for their gathering includes discussion of a formal covenant between the Companion Links Dioceses. The hope is to further clarify the connection and build a better understanding of the Companion Links relationship so the relationship is not entirely dependent on the Bishops, but carried on by other members of the dioceses. If possible, the hope is for the group to come to a determination on the covenant, which can be presented and voted upon during the Diocese of Wyoming’s annual convention in October.The Rev. Roxanne Jimerson-Friday, the first Native American woman from the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming to be ordained to the priesthood of the Episcopal Church, will speak to the group about Native American experiences in the church. The Rev. Warren Murphy, author of On Sacred Ground: A Religious and Spiritual History of Wyoming, will speak about environmental stewardship, which is a concern for all of the dioceses, especially Tanzania, where they are experiencing severe draught.Each visiting bishop will attend a service at a local parish and participate as a member of the congregation; they won’t be preaching or presiding, but experiencing the services, the people, and church life specific to that church as if they are a member.The visiting bishops will be introduced to Mutual Ministry, a unique model that is not seen in many other parts of the world beyond North America. It is a model that focuses on the inclusion of entire congregations to support, promote, and advance ministry.Wyoming was one of the first dioceses to use the contemporary version of Mutual Ministry, as its recognition that all baptized individuals are responsible for ministry has helped small, rural congregations grow their ministry and leadership. The Rt. Rev. Bob Jones (bishop of Wyoming, 1977-1996) started thinking about adopting the model and the Rt. Rev. Bruce Caldwell (bishop of Wyoming, 1997-2010) made that vision a priority for the diocese. Bishop Smylie, has worked to strengthen the diocese using the model with the formation of clergy and laity.Visit or follow the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming in Facebook to keep apprised of Companion Links happenings.Companion Links Relationships Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Featured Events Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ann K Fontaine says: Tags Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit a Press Release The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI center_img Rector Shreveport, LA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Youth Minister Lorton, VA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Be in quarterly contact (May, July, Oct & Jan) with one another as bishops between face-to-face meetings through coordinated communications (via Rev. Dr. Suresh Kumar and Canon Mike Harrison) and so forge a sense of on-going relationship and journeying together.3.

This is an upstream project in a time when the city has been gradually emptied from its inhabitants under the pressure of tourism and real estate speculation. In this scenario, this is a project of resistance since it grows from the desire of a family to remain in its own neighbourhood, place for their closer relations. This will guided even the way the project was shaped.Save this picture!© do mal o menosThe main façade overlooks Bartolomeu Dias street, an important axe running parallel to the riverside, that starts from Alcantara, crosses Belem’s monumental area and ends in Pedrouços street. This is a lively street, mostly residential, with some ground floor services and shops. The rear elevation, instead, overlooks Beco da Ré, a narrow and pedestrian street, surrounded by irregular blueprinted buildings. For its higher level of privacy, the inhabitants appropriate this street with chairs and drying clothes hanging outside, bringing in mind the typical atmosphere of the countryside villages. The difference of scale and use between the main road and the rear one stands out, becoming a driving line in the design process.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!Plan – 2nd floorSave this picture!© do mal o menosThe building with 60 square meters and two floors is highly degraded, making the demolition of the whole inside mandatory.  In order to respond to the programmatic needs, specifically a permanent residence for a 5 members family, it was strictly needed to make a two floors ampliation, aligning the building volume with the dominant height of the built surrounding. The project aims at underling the contrast between the existing and the new. The new floors, indeed, uses a contemporary architectural expression, result of the new constructive technology, and creates dialogue with the existing ones. Therefore, the tension between two different construction times becomes the main identity trace for the building.Save this picture!© do mal o menosSave this picture!Plan – 1st floorSave this picture!© do mal o menosThe internal spatial organization is reversed, going from more private spaces at the bottom floors to social ones at the top, in order to take advantage from the better view on the Tejo river. The living area is privileged, at the expense of the rooms, that has a more punctual use. So, the rooms are organized in the first two floors, and the living areas are organized in the last three ones.

Minneapolis protests shut down mall and airport

first_imgBloomington, Minn.The following article is reprinted from Fightback!News. See, Dec. 24.Just two days before Christmas, Dec. 23, and despite a failed lawsuit that asked courts to force organizers to cancel, Black Lives Matter protesters descended on the Mall of America to protest the police murders of Jamar Clark and other African Americans.Jigme Ugen, Alex Clark (shortly before his arrest), and Jess Sundin.Photo: fightbacknews.orgHoping to intimidate protesters, MOA security checked the bags of everyone entering the mall and locked all stores on the east side of the mall. Stores announced they would close “because of the Black Lives Matter protest” and said shoppers who didn’t leave the store would be locked inside.Hundreds of police from several metro area departments, wearing riot gear or bulletproof vests and wielding three-foot long batons, set out barricades around the rotunda, which was decorated with 44-foot-tall silver Christmas trees. Just as the police put the mall on lockdown, protesters put their fists in the air and marched silently out of the mall to board trains to the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International airport, where both terminals were shut down. Major roads and light rail service were also disrupted.According to organizers, “We have endured an armed white supremacist terrorist attack where five of us were shot; police violence in the form of mace, batons and less lethal projectiles; over 50 arrests on highway 94 and at the Fourth Precinct; and freezing temperatures to demand justice for Jamar Clark. If it’s not clear yet: We won’t stop until we get it.” They demand release of the tapes of the police killing; prosecution of the police involved; federal domestic terrorism charges against white supremacists who shot five protesters; and “disinvesting from police and investing in Black futures.”Youth out in big numbersThe protest comes two days after a grand jury in Texas gave the decision not to indict Sandra Bland’s killers. This is why the Minneapolis demands [are] not just prosecution of the police who killed Jamar Clark, but a special prosecutor and no grand jury.This was a coordinated effort nationwide to disrupt airports and public transit. Other actions happened in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Chicago and Chattanooga, Tenn. At the airport, Black Lives Matter Minneapolis said they wanted to bring attention to the “airport’s discriminatory profiling practices against Black people and anyone who is perceived to be Muslim, as part of a larger system that continues to kill and harm Black people without any justice. The continued relentless violence against Black people is appalling and morally repugnant. The fact that Black people get constantly harassed by police forces at every level, local and federal, in airports, malls, and on the streets of America is no longer acceptable.”Youth were out in big numbers at this particular protest, including at Terminal 2 (formerly called the Humphrey Terminal), where they led chants.Arrests were made at both the mall and the airport, including Alex Clark, a cousin of Jamar Clark. “As we were marching out of the mall with everyone else, police came up, called Alex by name, and placed him under arrest, claiming they had a warrant. They refused to say where the warrant was from or where they were taking him,” said his friend Jess Sundin, of Freedom Road Socialist Organization. “There’s no way he was pulled from the crowd because of any warrant. Alex was targeted because he’s been leading the fight to win justice for his cousin.”Clark and most of those arrested were released [the same] night, but one protester is being held without charge. According to Betsy Foxman, “David has not been charged with anything but is on a 36-hour probable cause hold. He needs to be charged with something so bail will be set and he can be released on bail.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Soy Growers Welcome Roberts to Chair of Senate Agriculture Committee

first_img Soy Growers Welcome Roberts to Chair of Senate Agriculture Committee SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Senator Pat RobertsWith the swearing in of the 114th Congress this week, Senate Republicans appointed Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas as the next chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture Nutrition and Forestry. Outgoing Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow of Michigan will become ranking member. The American Soybean Association (ASA), which has worked extensively with both lawmakers, signaled its praise of Roberts, and its optimism for the agricultural policy landscape in the coming Congress.“We are thankful for a wonderful working relationship with Chairman Roberts, and we’re excited for what’s to come on his watch,” said ASA President and Brownfield, Texas, farmer Wade Cowan. “Chairman Roberts has built a deep and fluent knowledge of agricultural policy, specifically the crop insurance and disaster assistance programs that are so vital to the success of soybean farmers. What’s more, Chairman Roberts has made each of his farm policy decisions based on the concept that farm programs should encourage farmers to grow what the market demands. His approach is one that doesn’t distort the marketplace and enables farmers to have the flexibility and confidence they need to be successful. At his core, he understands the intricacies of our industry, and we look forward to a great partnership with him.”ASA also expressed its gratitude to Ranking Member Stabenow for her leadership of the committee for the past four years. Sens. Stabenow and Roberts led the Agriculture Committee as chair and ranking member, respectively, for the majority of Stabenow’s time as chairwoman, and together laid the majority of the framework for the 2014 Farm Bill.“We can’t overstate the impact that Ranking Member Stabenow’s leadership has had on the success of American soybean farmers,” said Cowan. “As a direct result of her determination, resolve and bipartisan leadership, we have a set of enacted laws–not just good ideas on a drawing board–that help us stay competitive and successful every day. We owe her our most sincere thanks and look forward to continuing our relationship with her as ranking member.”Roberts becomes the first lawmaker to serve as chairman of the agriculture committees in both the House and the Senate, and both he and Stabenow are past recipients of ASA’s Soy Champion Award.

Headwinds Devastate Goldman Sachs’ Q1 Profits

first_img April 19, 2016 1,405 Views Tagged with: Earnings Goldman Sachs Profits  Print This Post On the other hand, Goldman Sachs said that debt underwriting net revenues were significantly higher compared with the first quarter of 2015, “primarily reflecting an increase in investment-grade activity.” Overall, the firm’s investment banking transaction backlog decreased compared with the end of 2015, but was higher compared with the end of the first quarter of 2015.Investing and lending net revenues fell 93 percent from the last quarter and 95 percent year-over-year to $87 million for the first quarter of 2016. Goldman Sachs attributes this decrease to a “significant decrease in net revenues from investments in both private and public equities, which were negatively impacted by generally lower global equity prices and corporate performance during the first quarter of 2016.”Debt securities and loans net revenues were also significantly lower compared with the first quarter of 2015, primarily “reflecting lower net revenues related to loans and lending commitments to institutional clients (including higher provision for losses) and lower net gains from investments,” the statement said.“Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on delivering superior service to our clients and managing our business efficiently, which remain essential to generating shareholder value over the long term,” Blankfein said.Click here to view Goldman Sachs’ 2016 First Quarter Earnings Statement.
