Global Gaming to appeal Swedish licence revocation

first_img Email Address Global Gaming to appeal Swedish licence revocation Casino & games Following the news that its Swedish operating licence had been revoked, Global Gaming has pledged to fight the decision.The operator’s SafeEnt Ltd subsidiary was stripped of its licence by the country’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen, which highlighted a series of failings throughout the business.The Ninja Casino operator was found to have failed to introduce effective player protection controls and anti-money laundering processes, amounting to significant breaches of the country’s gambling regulations.While Global Gaming has opted to comply with the ruling and withdraw its services from the market, it disputes Spelinspektionen’s decision.The operator said it was in dialogue with the regulator concerning its operational shortcomings, and had taken action to ensure it was complying with Swedish regulations.“The information this morning from [Spelinspektionen] was unexpected as the company was under the impression that we are compliant with the regulations which the new legislation has set for gaming operators in Sweden,” the company’s acting chief executive Tobias Fagerlund, who took charge in April, replacing Joacim Möller in the role.“That they have come to this decision is odd,” he added.Global Gaming noted that it – and its legal advisors – was under the impression that it now fulfilled all necessary criteria for securing a licence. It noted that its lawyers believed the licence revocation was unjustified, and that it had grounds to dispute the decision.“We will of course appeal the decision and have good reasons to believe that we will be successful,” Fagerlund said. “That the license now have been revoked lacks legal grounds and comprises disproportionate action which will cause the company significant damage.” 17th June 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Strategy Slots Table games Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Slot Machines Following the news that its Swedish operating licence had been revoked, Global Gaming has pledged to fight the decision. Earlier today Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen cited significant failings in the operator’s social responsiblity and anti-money laundering controls as grounds for removing the certification.

Healthy Food, Healthy Brain: How Eating Right Can Help You Avoid…

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Multiple studies have established a connection between healthy food and lower risks of Alzheimer’s disease. One 2015 study found an eating plan focusing on fresh fruit, vegetables and nuts lowered Alzheimer’s risk by as much as 53 percent.“These impressive findings show that this eating plan may be as good as it gets when it comes to what we know about the food that prevents Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Ariel Cole, director of Florida Hospital’s Geriatric Fellowship Program. “It’s especially important to talk about prevention because there are few treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and no cure.”Florida Hospital believes eating right is one of the essential elements of whole-body health. CREATION Health teaches that nutrition is your fuel, and small changes can create profound benefits.Nutritionists have come up with a list of foods to seek out and avoid that is specifically designed for brain health.What is the MIND Eating Plan?You know that broccoli is better for you than a cheeseburger, but what does an eating plan focused on brain health specifically look like? Researchers mixed two eating plans: One based on the food eaten by people in the Mediterranean region and another that was created to help lower blood pressure.They called it the Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay, or MIND, diet.A quick note: Nutritionists call it a diet, but they don’t mean it the way most people do. It’s not a plan to cut calories or fat to lose weight. Instead, it’s basically a word to describe all the food you eat. We call it an eating plan.Here are some serving suggestions from the minds behind MIND:Green leafy vegetables: like spinach, at least six a weekOther vegetables: one a dayNuts: five a weekBerries: two or more a weekBeans: at least three a weekWhole grains: three or more a dayFish: once a weekChicken or turkey: twice a weekOlive oil: Use as a main cooking oilHere’s what to avoid if you’re following the MIND eating plan:Red meat: Limit to four servings a weekButter: Limit to one tablespoon (one-eighth of a stick) per dayCheese: Limit to one serving a weekPastries and sweets: Limit to five servings a weekFried or fast food: Limit to one serving a weekThough this eating plan was developed for brain health, its benefits extend far beyond Alzheimer’s prevention. It’s a great plan for a healthy heart, digestive system and more, Dr. Cole says.Tips to Get StartedFood habits are some of the toughest to change.“We’ve spent decades building them up, so don’t expect to change them all in a day,” Dr. Cole says. “My advice is take it slow, and make small changes because radical ones are really hard to keep up over the long haul.”Maybe it means introducing new fruits and vegetables you might like, such as by adding blueberries to your oatmeal or trying a new recipe with spinach or kale.It all starts in the grocery store, where you’ll want to bring a list and spend most of your time on the perimeter.“That’s where the fresh foods are,” Dr. Cole said, while the processed foods are concentrated in the aisles.She acknowledges it’s not easy to reorient your eating habits.“Our lives are increasingly busy and we depend on processed foods because they take less time to cook,” Dr. Cole said.At the same time, there are new ways to eat healthy, too, from online recipes to fresh food delivery services.One positive element of the MIND eating plan is that you don’t have to perfectly follow it to see benefits. The most impressive 53 percent reduction in Alzheimer’s risk came among the top third of people who stuck to the plan most closely.But even the middle third, those who ate plenty of fruits and vegetables but were far from perfect, enjoyed a 35 percent reduction in Alzheimer’s risk compared to the bottom third. That’s great news. It means that taking even small steps can pay off in a big way.Beyond FoodA healthy eating plan isn’t the only lifestyle change that will help prevent Alzheimer’s, Dr. Cole says. Staying active in body and mind can also be a great help.“Walking is an excellent exercise, and it costs no money,” she says. Think about exercise broadly — it doesn’t only mean going to a gym.“If you’re moving, it counts,” Dr. Cole says.Keeping your brain active, especially by staying engaged with friends and family, can also protect it against dementia. Here are some of her tips:Read a bookLearn to danceTravelLearn a new languageDo a puzzleTake a cooking classPlay board games“There are a million ways to exercise your brain, but passive activities like watching TV aren’t helpful,” Dr. Cole says.To learn more about how the Center for Aging and Wellness can help keep your body active, your mind sharp and your spirit lively, call us at 407-599-6060 or visit our website.

What is now one of the most beautiful buildings in the Auckland CBD was once a ghastly blue monster. Left to wilt since the 1980s, the 16 storey apartment building resembled some sort of ancient orphanage, with black windows, dingy steel balconies, and a garden dotted with an assortment of mismatching shrubs. The lobby was even worse. Narrow and irregular, its yellowing walls flanked a bubbling vinyl floor, and the ceiling featured a collection of burnt out light fittings. The closer you got to Harbourview, the more shocking it became. Its occupants and the bodycorp agreed that much, but re-design attempts to date had been too expensive, running into the millions. The building did not seem to be worth the investment.Save this picture!© Simon DevittIn the end S&T picked up the challenge. Our design idea, drawing inspiration from water and light, sought to help Harbourview find the identity promised in its name. Key themes were “white” and “fluidity”; curves instead of angles, soft instead of hard. With a minimal scope of exterior and lobby, we set to work. Save this picture!ground floor planOutside, the building was painted white, the original blue highlighting the base of the balconies. The balustrades were replaced with glass, allowing occupants an uninterrupted view of the harbour. From below, the series of curved, glass-fibre soffits create a simple wave pattern, suggesting both strength and movement. The garden became a glass façade framed in white marble, revealing an interior panel of warm ebony. Save this picture!© Simon DevittInside, the lobby is largely made up of seamlessly wrapped, polished Italian marble. The effect is surreal; marble floor curves into wall and then into ceiling, the surfaces a cascading ocean of reflection. The opposite wall is a continuation of ebony veneer, a visual guide to the lifts. Circular light fittings of mouthblown glass bloom on the walls and ceiling, appearing to hover over the marble surfaces. No other ornament is needed; the materials are classical, but the simplicity modern. Strong and graceful, the materials alone articulate a sense of nobility, wealth, and peace. Save this picture!© Simon DevittHarbourview’s occupants were astonished at the result. They had no idea that such beauty could emerge from the original building. Two years later it is meticulously maintained, a testimony to materials that do justice to high standards of presentation and also to the pride of its owners. From an uninviting, neglected eyesore, the building now looks high-class and elegant.Project gallerySee allShow less’Unfinished Modernisations / Between Utopia and Pragmatism’ ExhibitionArticlesVideo: Redbull New Headquarters / Sid Lee ArchitectureArticlesProject locationAddress:Auckland, New ZealandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Salvatierra 150 is a multifamily housing project, located north of the city of Mérida in the state of Yucatan, in a triangular ground of 68.50 meters in front, which houses 13 housing units interconnected spatially in the set.Save this picture!© Eduardo CalvoThe project starts from the study of the spatiality and shape of the terrain, resulting in an axial scheme, where the elements are ordered from a vertical axis, horizontal or as in this case, both. These are organized from a series of blind walls, which are rotating, as a response to a corner work, sunning and ventilation, generating two facades that change as they go around the building and together with the generated rhythms of spans and massifs, give dynamism, movement and character to the building.Save this picture!Planta BajaThe complex consists of a perfectly marked access from a set of heights and materials that leads to a central distributor element, which generates a path of lights, shadows and vegetation, culminating in the different housing models, these respond to the restrictions and regulations regarding the land, as well as the current supply and demand of real estate, creating a wider portfolio of potential clients.Save this picture!© Eduardo CalvoThe project was built with the traditional system. The exterior walls are completely covered with a mixture of concrete and water of chukum (tree endemic to the region), a characteristic feature of the area, with no maintenance and strong Yucatecan identity, which is a highly sustainable material. Another very important characteristic that is observed in the building are the different heights in walls that is given as a consequence of a deep respect to the urban image as well as to the adjoining rooms and houses that surround the property, endowing with this gesture of wealth perspective to the city and privacy to both the users and the neighbors of the area.Save this picture!© Eduardo CalvoThe permeability is another of the characteristics that can be observed in the project through the treatment of balconies, which, being constituted by a series of semitransparent elements, create a correlation with the city, contributing to the desired urban plans, since this building-city relationship has a beneficial effect on insecurity rates.Save this picture!© Eduardo CalvoProject gallerySee allShow lessDavid Chipperfield to Transform 16th Century Building on Venice’s Piazza San MarcoArchitecture NewsNew Renderings Revealed of 3XN’s Olympic Committee Headquarters as Construction Cont…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Merida, Yucatan, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

A mystery within a mystery

first_imgOh, the horror of it! That loud, whining, brain-piercing sound! What will these Reds do next to poor U.S. diplomats?It made headlines and evening news flashes. The nasty Cuban communists were making life unbearable for the poor U.S. Embassy staffers who had the misfortune of being posted to this dangerous island. Wasn’t it bad enough that they had to suffer annual parades of a million singing and chanting people marching past their embassy? Or that the Yankees couldn’t miss seeing the Cuban flags flying provocatively right across the street!But now the commies were subjecting them to sonic blasts from who knew where. They couldn’t stand it any more. Something had to be done. So the State Department found U.S. experts to come and examine them and opine that they were being exposed to some diabolical new technology that weaponized sound and might have damaged their hearing. But how?U.S. personnel in Cuba made a recording of the sinister droning, gave it to the Associated Press, and it went viral. Unfortunately for the diplomats, a couple of scientists decided to analyze the  recording. In early January they presented their findings to the annual meeting of the Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology. Alexander Stubbs of the University of California, Berkeley and Fernando Montealegre-Z of the University of Lincoln in England had come to what they call a “definitive conclusion” about the source of the sound.Crickets.The scientists analyzed field recordings of insects stored in an online database at the University of Florida. They found a striking resemblance to one species in particular: the Indies short-tailed cricket. They wrote that its love song matches “in nuanced detail, the A.P. recording in duration, pulse repetition rate, power spectrum, pulse rate stability, and oscillations per pulse.” (New York Times, Jan. 4)Case closed? Not yet. A mystery remains. Were the U.S. Embassy personnel so stupid they couldn’t tell the sound of a cricket from some infernal machine? Or were they just so bored with their jobs that they had to come up with a juicy story for the always-eager-to-bash-the-Reds media?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Pruitt Out at EPA, Farm Groups React

first_img Pruitt Out at EPA, Farm Groups React SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 5, 2018 Scott Pruitt will no longer lead the environmental protection agency, president trump announced thursday afternoon via twitter. “I have accepted the resignation of scott pruitt,” Trump tweeted. “within the agency Scott has done an outstanding job, and i will always be thankful to him for this,” Trump also wrote. the President also said that on monday Andrew Wheeler will “Assume duties as the acting administrator of the epa.” “I have no doubt that Andy will continue on with our great and lasting epa agenda. we have made tremendous progress and the future of the epa is very bright!” Trump said.North Dakota farmer Kevin Skunes, president of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), said in a statement, “It’s no secret corn farmers have been frustrated with Scott Pruitt’s ongoing actions over the past year that have seriously undermined the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Even with this leadership change at the EPA, our priorities do not change. We will continue to push the EPA to stop granting unjustified RFS waivers. We expect the EPA to account for the more than 1.6 billion gallons the agency waived from 2016 and 2017 RFS obligations, and we will continue ask EPA to follow through on the president’s commitment to remove outdated regulations to allow higher blends of ethanol like E15 to be sold year-round. We are hopeful Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler will work with America’s corn farmers to give consumers more options at the pump to save them money and reduce emissions and provide farmers with certainty in the marketplace that comes with RFS integrity.”Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen reacted by saying, “For the past year, Scott Pruitt had been waging war against the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the biofuels industry, and the millions of farmers and rural Americans who helped Donald Trump get elected. It appears these missteps finally caught up with Mr. Pruitt, who apparently thought that RFS stood for ‘Refinery First Strategy.’ Mr. Pruitt’s failure to follow President Trump’s directive to remove the red tape that restricts E15 from being sold in the summertime likely played a part in his demise, and the straw that broke the camel’s back may have been Mr. Pruitt’s recent proposal for 2019 RFS requirements that failed miserably to repair damages done to our nation’s farmers and biofuel producers.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Pruitt Out at EPA, Farm Groups React SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleCorn Crop Update and Change Ahead at Purdue Ag Alumni Association on the HAT Thursday Morning EditionNext articlePerdue Hopeful NAFTA Agreement with Mexico Coming Soon Gary Truitt Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

It is a period that is not much explored or understood,” stated archaeologist Sarah McCutcheon.Kilmallock’s town walls, 70 per cent of which remain standing today, make it one of Ireland’s most intact walled towns. Hundreds of metres of the town’s medieval walls have been restored in recent years.Brian Hodkinson of Limerick Museum said that the event would raise the profile of the late medieval remains within the environs, encourage repeat visits and establish Limerick city, Kilmallock and other walled towns firmly on the itinerary of cultural tourism.

A three-judge Bench of Justices UU Lalit, Indira Banerjee and KM Joseph is scheduled to hear his plea on Wednesday, 3rd March 2021. Navlakha’s plea before the top Court comes after a division bench of Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik refused to interfere in his criminal appeal filed against an order of the special court, which rejected his application for default bail in June, last year. He is in prison since his surrender on April, 14 2020. Navlakha sought default bail on the grounds that the National Investigating Agency (NIA) had failed to file their chargesheet within the stipulated period of 90 days. The NIA, however, contended that Navlakha was under house arrest for 34 days, between August 29 to October 1, 2018, which was declared illegal by the Delhi High Court. Therefore, it could not be included in his custody period. However the High Court, observed that, the time spent in “unlawful custody” cannot be included while computing the 90 days period prescribed for grant of default bail under section 167(2) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). The Court had further observed that 34 days Navlakha had spent under house arrest between August 28, 2018 – October 10, 2018, cannot be used to calculate his total detention period, especially since his arrest, as well as the magistrate’s transit remand, was found to be illegal by the Delhi HC. “It is not possible for us to fathom a situation where detention of the Appellant(Navlakha) though held to be illegal & unlawful rendering the authorisation by the Magistrate untenable should still be construed as an authorised detention for the purpose of Sub-Section (2) of Section 167 of the CrPC,” the court had observed. The court held that there was no doubt Navlakha was under house arrest, during which time he could interact only with his family and lawyers. However, the investigating agency did not have any access to him or an occasion to interrogate him, as the High Court had ordered the police to keep Navlakha at the same place from where he was picked up. “As the transit remand order was stayed, it cannot be said that the appellant was under detention of police for investigation, “the bench observed. The court held that section 167 (2) of the CrPC, assumes the detention is authorised by a magistrate, and 90 days upward from that day can be used to calculate the period of custody for default bail. “However, once the authorisation by the Magistrate is declared illegal consequently rendering the detention itself illegal, the said period (house arrest custody) cannot be construed to be an authorised custody within the meaning of Section 167(2) of CrPC.,” the court said. The Maharashtra police had arrested Navlakha on August 28, 2018 in connection with an FIR lodged following the ‘Elgar Parishad’ held on December 31, 2017 and the Bhima Koregaon violence, a day after. Through the nationwide crackdown on activists and academics, connected to the conference, the police claimed to bust a larger maoist conspiracy. The case was later handed over to the NIA.
