first_img4th September 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Leading newspapers ordered not to provide links to unregulated websites Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Sweden’s gambling regulator has claimed victory after the country’s two leading newspapers were told they cannot provide links to unregulated offshore companies. Aftonbladet and Expressen each appealed an injunction imposed by Lotteriinspektionen in 2013 demanding they cease offering links to foreign gaming sites on their websites. However, the Chamber of Commerce civil court found that linking to foreign gaming advertising is a measure of a pronounced commercial nature that is not protected by the freedom of expression. The court also ruled that the promotion ban in the lottery law is not contrary to European Union law. “It is positive that the tribunal will take a stand against promotion of lotteries without permission in Sweden,” said Camilla Rosenberg, director general of Lotteriinspektionen, in a statement. “We assume that anyone who violates the promotion ban by linking to or promoting foreign gaming sites now ends with this.” Under the Lottery Act 1994 it is prohibited to promote participation in a lottery organised outside the country for professional purposes. Lotteriinspektionen contended that clickable links hosted by Aftonbladet and Expressen were promotions, in a similar nature to traditional advertising. In the last five years, Lotteriinspektionen has issued a number of similar injunctions against other media companies regarding the same type of linking. Under the Lottery Act, the regulator can notify the injunctions and prohibitions necessary for compliance with the law, and impose penalties. The new Game Act 2018, which will become law in January, also prohibits the promotion of games not regulated in Sweden. Household names such as Svenska Spel and Betsson were among 22 companies that applied for Sweden’s new gambling licences on the first day of submissions on August 1. iGamingBusiness.com understands that up to 70 licence applications are expected to be made ahead of the re-regulation that sees state-owned Svenska Spel’s gaming monopoly end. Lotteriinspektionen recently urged applicants to submit their documents as early as possible to be sure of being licensed before January.

Operators that breach national regulations could now face a starting fine of €200,000 (£171,200/$227,600), up from the previous penalty of €150,000. KSA said this amount will be increased or decreased depending on the specific violation, taking into account factors such as the number of sites that are being run by the operator, the amount of games offered, as well as the level of prizes and bonuses available to consumers. In addition, KSA has set out increases of at least €75,000 for three breaches in particular: offering live betting, calculating costs for temporary inactive players and making misleading statements about permits and supervision. The regulator said that it has been forced into making the changes due to regular rule breaches by gambling operators. KSA chairman, René Jansen, said the increase in financial penalties will support the long-awaited regulation of online gambling in the country. Last month, the Dutch Senate passed the Remote Gaming Act, paving the way for the roll-out of igaming regulation. “The fines we used were not terrifying enough,” Jansen said. “The Senate recently adopted the bill on remote games of chance, which makes it possible to apply for a licence in time for offering gambling via the internet. “The intention of the law is to create an attractive legal online gaming offer, which makes it possible for consumers to play safely on a fair market. “There is no room for illegal providers. That is why we intend to thoroughly review our penalties policy for the future. The updating of the fines policy is now only a first step.” The Netherlands is expected to begin awarding online gaming licences from the middle of 2020, with operators required to develop comprehensive responsible gaming strategies to offer a high level of player protection. Licensees face a tax rate of 29.1% of gross revenue. It is hoped regulation could help tackle illegal gambling problems in the country. In January, a report commissioned by Holland Casino suggested that the number of people gambling online illegally in the Netherlands had increased by 20% over the last two years. In addition, KSA said it issued a record €1.7m in fines to operators that breached current regulations over the course of 2018. The regulator handed out a total of 23 sanctions over the course of the last year, including seven administrative penalties, 12 penalties and four charges under administrative coercion.Image: Max Pixel Finance Regions: Europe Western Europe Netherlands Email Address Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

first_imgRoom for improvementThe Lions conceded a fair few penalties at scrum time, Mako Vunipola being picked out by the officials early on, so they will want to tighten up that area over the next week. Penalty kicks are likely to prove decisive in the final Test.They made too many errors – knock-ons, messy set-piece ball, a few poor kicks – and will want to improve on their accuracy for next week. They will need to retain possession in order to create scoring chances because they are likely to need to score tries to win this series. They can also look at their game management and kicking game – keeping the Aussies pinned back in their 22 restricts their attacking threat but here too many balls were kicked to the hosts in space and the Lions struggled for territory.As James Horwill said post-match “the game of chess continues”. Both sides analysis teams will be working tirelessly to pinpoint areas to exploit, but it will be down to the players on the pitch to be clinical in doing that on the pitch next week.StatsAustralia made four clean breaks to none from the Lions and made three times as many offloads (nine to three), and twice as many passes (139 to 63) and runs (127 to 60). Mako Vunipola was the Lions’ top tackler with 15.Scorers LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Golden moment: Australia centre Adam Ashley-Cooper dives over for the only try of the game – and a decisive oneBy Sarah Mockford at Etihad Stadium in MelbourneIn a nutshellThis was a tight, edgy, error-strewn affair, sealed by an Adam Ashley-Cooper try four minutes from time. Neither side had the space to create the spectacular tries of seven days ago, the two defences making it difficult to spark any expansive attacking moves. Leigh Halfpenny did have a chance to snatch the win with the last kick of the game but it fell short from halfway, so the series now goes to a deciding Test in Sydney.It was a hugely physical performance from both sides and it was pleasing to see referee Craig Joubert allow a contest at the breakdown after last week’s non-event in that area. The mistakes and numerous resets at scrum time did make it a stop-start affair. It wasn’t a thrilling game, but it was a tense one – the nature of the occasion clearly affecting both sides – and Australia did what they so often do in all manner of sports, displaying the self-belief to keep playing and go for the final score. When their backs are to the wall, the Wallabies thrive. Now the momentum’s with them, the pressure is on the Lions – will they be able to display similar determination next week and win a first series since 1997?Key momentAdam Ashley-Cooper’s touchdown in the 76th minute. The Lions were leading 15-9 and looked comfortable, but Australia then managed to work through the phases in the visitors’ half. Israel Folau made a half break, then Will Genia got within five metres of the line. The ball was recycled quickly, James O’Connor fed Ashley-Cooper and he broke Jonathan Davies’s tackle to dive over the line. Christian Leali’ifano then slotted the conversion to give Australia the lead for the first time since the 22nd minute.Sam’s the man: Warburton at a lineoutStar man – Sam WarburtonThe Lions captain was immense before his enforced departure with an injury. Given far more leeway to compete at the breakdown than the previous week, he dominated the contact area and earned the Lions penalties as the Wallabies were forced to hold on to the ball. He also made his tackles, a key one coming when Australia took a quick tap penalty – he spotted their plan and was the first to sprint across to the touchline to make the hit. He was sorely missed when he had to depart with 15 minutes to go, the Wallabies gaining an edge at the tackle area and that quick ball led to the decisive try.

The monument, erected in 2016, traces the history of African Americans in Texas from the 1500s to the present. The central portion of the memorial, by sculptor Ed Dwight, depicts the original Juneteenth in Texas in 1865. Photo: Associated Press[Episcopal News Service] Juneteenth is recognized by most states as a secular holiday and celebrated in many American communities on June 19. This year, the Diocese of California is taking its Juneteenth commemorations a step further with its inaugural feast day worship service for the holiday, which celebrates the emancipation of American slaves.The diocese added Juneteenth to its calendar of feasts by a vote of its convention in October 2020. Since then, members of the regional chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians, or UBE, have worked with the diocese’s Afro-Anglican Commission to develop a Juneteenth liturgy. It will be celebrated for the first time June 19 at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco and livestreamed on Facebook. The diocese also will propose adding the feast day to the churchwide calendar when the 80th General Convention meets next year.Jeanette Dinwiddie-Moore, co-chair of the UBE chapter and a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Oakland, was a leading proponent of the resolution that created the diocesan feast day because she thinks it is important to deepen awareness of the history of slavery. Juneteenth is sometimes called the country’s second Independence Day, Dinwiddie-Moore noted, and stories of emancipation are still relevant to the challenges that people of color face in the 21st century.“It’s also a fact that oppression and slavery in different forms still exist in the world today, and even in the United States,” she told Episcopal News Service.Juneteenth traces its origins to Galveston, Texas, in 1865, though nearly every state now marks June 19 with a Juneteenth holiday or observance.June 19 marks the anniversary of the day in 1865 when Union Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger and his troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced to slaves there that they had been freed. The Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln had taken effect on Jan. 1, 1863, but the order had little effect in the parts of the South still controlled by the Confederacy during the Civil War. And even though the war ended in April 1865, former slaves in Texas didn’t receive news that they were free until two years later.Celebrations of Juneteenth took on greater resonance last year, when the holiday occurred less than a month after the killing by police of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Cellphone video of the murder of a Black man by a white officer inspired protests against racial injustice across the country and drew attention to the historical roots of racial oppression in the United States.Episcopalians joined in celebrating the holiday last year while highlighting the church’s continuing efforts at racial reconciliation. More events are planned for this year:Episcopalians in Galveston are preparing to participate in local celebrations on June 19, marking the holiday’s origins in the city, and Grace Episcopal Church will offer a choral Evensong, emphasizing the importance of expanding historical narratives to include marginalized groups.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will speak by prerecorded video on behalf of the dioceses of Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania at an online Juneteenth celebration at 11 a.m. June 18 hosted by Clarion University and the Clarion, Pennsylvania, Chamber of Commerce.Washington National Cathedral will honor Juneteenth in the lighting of its west front June 15-19.The Rt. Rev. Gayle Harris, bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Massachusetts, is leading an online celebration at 4:30 p.m. June 19, with registration required.In Richmond, Virginia, a daylong series of activities on June 19 is planned at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and St. John’s Episcopal Church, including a worship service and participation in a March for Unity.“It’s an important holiday,” the Rev. Mauricio Wilson told ENS. He is rector of St. Paul’s in Oakland and chair of the Diocese of California’s Afro-Anglican Commission. “Things didn’t just magically change on June 19 of that year when the news got to the then-enslaved people in Texas, but when you look back in history, it marks an important date for all of us.”Wilson was part of the group that developed the diocese’s Juneteenth liturgy, which includes prayers, hymns and suggested readings from Scripture for the day. The group chose Amos 5:18-24, Galatians 3:23-29 and Luke 4:14-21, along with Psalm 137.California Bishop Marc Andrus, in a written message to ENS, thanked Wilson, Dinwiddie-Moore and other local Episcopal leaders for proposing the feast day and developing the liturgy for its celebration.“Holding the first of our annual observances in Grace Cathedral locates the Juneteenth celebration in a central sacred space of our wider church,” Andrus said, “a place where the birth of the United Nations in San Francisco is memorialized, a place where the compassionate response to the AIDS crisis is also remembered. Juneteenth now takes its place with these great events.”Nearly every state has proclaimed Juneteenth as a holiday or observance. In the past year, some also have made it a paid holiday for state employees, from New York to Washington. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was the last holiday added to the federal calendar, in 1983, and some U.S. lawmakers are stepping up their efforts to make Juneteenth a federal holiday as well.An increasing number of employers are giving their workers the day off and, for the first time, that includes the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, the church’s corporate entity. Because June 19 falls on a Saturday, churchwide employees will receive June 18 off in observance of Juneteenth.“Juneteenth is fundamental to our desire to be a Beloved Community,” the Rev. Geoffrey Smith, the church’s chief operations officer, said in a written statement for this story. “Proclaiming the dream of emancipation may have happened in 1863, but for those still enslaved it was an interminable wait until June 19, 1865, before it truly became reality. As we are learning the truth about racial reconciliation, we go through a process of practicing the way of love that needs to involve change.”The Diocese of California’s Juneteenth liturgy could become a model for other dioceses – and for a possible Episcopal Church feast day.“Over the years, I have heard many explanations for why it took from January 1 of 1863 to June 19 of 1865 for news of the Emancipation Proclamation to make it to Texas. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that so many had a vested interest in covering up that the news, especially throughout the Confederacy. In spite of that, the news got there anyway. Slaves heard the word Freedom applied to them with ‘All slaves in the rebellious states shall be henceforth, and forever, free.’ Even though the Emancipation Proclamation didn’t have the force of law, it was a sword of the Spirit. Slaves through the Confederacy escaped and joined the Union Army,” Curry told ENS in a statement.“And though it would be years in coming, that dawning realization that freedom was for them was the beginning of the freedom movement from within that would eventually break the chains without.“Today, the observance of Juneteenth might be a subtle awakening to the truth that even painful truths, once told, do not further enslave us to the past; rather, if we learn from them, they set us free to live a new present and a new future. And that is true for the descendants of former slaves and the descendants of former slave owners,” he said.The Episcopal Church’s calendar of feast days includes just two secular U.S. holidays: Independence Day and Thanksgiving. No feast days are yet on the official calendar for June 19, though 20th-century educator Adelaide Teague Case would be added to that date under a plan for expanding the calendar that received first approval by General Convention in 2018.The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, or SCLM, in its report for the 80th General Convention, outlined guidelines for proposing new feasts for the churchwide calendar and the publication known as “Lesser Feasts and Fasts.” It emphasized first developing liturgies and celebrations locally before proposing them for wider use.“History demonstrates that liturgical commemorations originate in the local community,” SCLM’s report said. “Indeed, all proposed additions to the calendar of the church ought to begin as local commemorations.”The Diocese of California is following that process with the Juneteenth resolution approved at its diocesan convention. In addition to calling for California to establish Juneteenth as a paid holiday for state employees, the diocese pledged to “work toward the inclusion of the Juneteenth Feast Day in ‘Lesser Feasts and Fasts.’”Wilson will be an alternate deputy representing California at the 80th General Convention in July 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland. He told ENS that diocesan celebrations will bolster the case for adding Juneteenth as a churchwide feast.“We’re trying to put it in place here, show that it can be done,” he said, and the diocese is happy to share its liturgy with others across the church who are interested in doing the same.Dinwiddie-Moore, the UBE chapter co-chair, is looking forward to participating in the inaugural Juneteenth service at Grace Cathedral, the culmination of nearly a year’s worth of work by her and other proponents of the feast.“I’ve spent a lot of hours on this,” she said. “I’m very happy it’s where it is today. It’s really a blessing.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

first_imgMonday May 20, 2019 Bristol Bears show how despite having one foot out the door, legend George Smith still played his role Bristol Bears bade farewell to one of rugby’s modern greats at the weekend, as the 38-year-old George Smith played his final game.ADVERTISEMENTThe 111-cap Wallaby arrived at Ashton Gate at the beginning of the season, and has helped Pat Lam’s team in their first season back in the Premiership. He made his last appearance in professional rugby against Newcastle, before he moves on to become coach of Japanese outfit Sungatory Goliath.Smith may have not stolen many headlines this season, but Bristol have been keen to show what a player he has been for the club, particularly off the pitch.Bristol Bears Academy tweeted recently how Smith continued to work tirelessly in training in his final week as a professional player. They said “Young players trying to be the best they can – Be like George!”Watching 1st team training this week & was struck by George Smith doing fitness & skills extra’s – in his final ever week as a professional! No wonder he has been at the top for 20 years! Young players trying to be the best they can – Be like George! pic.twitter.com/2HhT0W62rl— Bristol Bears Academy (@brfc_academy) May 19, 2019They also described how much he has helped with the academy throughout his year with the club, rightfully calling him a “legend”.He also contributed in helping the younger players coming through the Bears system – word “legend” is readily overused, feel confident in using it with regards to George! Top man – best of luck for the future! https://t.co/7VoVlGPS5K— Bristol Bears Academy (@brfc_academy) May 19, 2019ADVERTISEMENTWhile this may not be a lengthy eulogy to one of the greatest players of his generation, it is still an insight into why Smith has remained at the top for so long.Staggeringly, Smith made his debut for the Wallabies in 2000, which is simply an unprecedented longevity in modern rugby. Despite playing 111 tests, the fact that he has played up until now is remarkable.Smith effectively retired from international rugby in 2009, although he did come back in 2013 for a Test against the British and Irish Lions. By then, he was already the youngest player to achieve 100 caps, at the age of 29. If he continued to represent his country, there is no doubt that he could have eclipsed Richie McCaw’s caps record. Then again, he probably would not have been able to play until he was 38.ADVERTISEMENTSmith has been a standout player for almost every team he has ever played for. In 2015, he joined Wasps, with many unsure how much he would be able to provide. However, he went on to win the Premiership Players’ Player of the Year accolade in his first season, despite being the age of 34.Although one of the most interesting careers of the professional era is coming to an end, Bristol have given an insight into how much he has been able to contribute to the game for so long, and perhaps why it will be a while before another player has a career so long and varied as his.

One, Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, was given a 15-year jail sentence 10 days ago while another, Mehdi Khazali, the editor of the website Baran http://www.drkhazali.com, was arrested two days ago.“Like journalists, bloggers have been treated for months as if they are enemies of the regime,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But the authorities have now started to impose much harsher sentences on them. Bloggers involved in censorship circumvention are being particularly targeted as they help their fellow citizens to gain access to banned information.”Khazali was arrested on 13 October after responding to a summons to appear before the 4th chamber of the Tehran prosecutor’s office. His son said he was threatened earlier the same day by members of the security services who wanted force him to go directly to Evin prison.A doctor as well as a blogger, Khazali is the son of Ayatollah Abolghasem Khazali, who has been an influential member of the Council of Guardians of the Iranian Constitution for the past 30 years. Mehdi Khazali has been posting a lot of criticism of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his government on his website Baran (http://www.drkhazali.com/) for more than a year.He spent 23 days in solitary confinement in Section 209 of Evin prison following a previous arrest on 28 June 2009. He was released on 20 July 2009 on bail of 20 million tomans (20,000 euros).Maleki received his 15-year jail sentence from the Tehran revolutionary court’s 26th chamber on 5 October, after more than 300 days in solitary confinement. It consisted of 11 years for “collaborating with the Iran proxy group” (which helps Iranians to sidestep online censorship), two years for “insulting the Supreme Leader” and two years for insulting the president.Maleki disputed the charges but, according to his mother, “he was hit in court and forced to sign the verdict.” His lawyer, Mohammad Ali Dadkhah, confirmed this and said he would appeal against this “unjust” verdict.Revolutionary Guards arrested Maleki on 13 December during an “operation to dismantle a counterrevolutionary network.” He was alleged to have written and used software to combat filtering and to host and support websites and blogs that defend human rights. He was held incommunicado for several weeks before the authorities confirmed they were holding him.His sentence is the severest received by an Iranian blogger since the jail term of 19 and a half years that was imposed on Hossein Derakhshan on 28 September (read the release).A total of 27 journalists and nine netizens are currently in prison in Iran. Reporters Without Borders has learned that blogger Mehdi Khazali was released on bail of 200 million toman (150 euros) on 12 November pending trial. The son of Ayatollah Abolghasem Khazali, an influential member of the Council of Guardians of the Iranian Constitution for the past 30 years, he was arrested on 13 October after responding to a summons to report to the Tehran prosecutor’s officeHe is charged with “activities contrary to national security” and “publishing false information aimed at disrupting public order.” He had been very critical of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the government on his website Baran (http://www.drkhazali.com/) for the past year.Reporters Without Borders is meanwhile concerned about jailed blogger Mohammad Pour Abdullah, whose request for release on parole after completing half of his three-year sentence was recently rejected. The editor of the blog Pishro (Avant-garde), he was arrested on 12 January 2008 and was initially sentenced by a Tehran revolutionary court on 14 December 2009 to six years on prison on a charge of anti-government propaganda and “activities contrary to national security.” The sentence was reduced to three years by a Tehran appeal court two months later. Under Iranian law, prisoners can be freed on parole after completing half of their sentence.A total of 25 journalists and nine netizens are currently detained in Iran, which is ranked 175th out of 178 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
