GC response to Ladbrokes Rule 4 incident ‘proportionate’

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance Tags: OTB and Betting Shops GC response to Ladbrokes Rule 4 incident ‘proportionate’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The UK’s Gambling Commission has insisted it has taken “proportionate and appropriate” action to ensure bookmakers do not mishandle so-called Rule 4 deductions in horse racing after Ladbrokes escaped without a fine following an investigation into an incident that occurred in January 2015.Last year, race-horse trainer David Evans was fined £3,000 by the British Horseracing Authority after he had admitted to delaying news of a non-runner, Tango Sky, in the hope of backing another of his horses, Black Dave, in the same race at better odds.Immediately after placing the bet, Evans told the Ladbrokes trader on the telephone that Tango Sky would be withdrawn. The Commission concluded that the Ladbrokes trader had deliberately shortened the price on Tango Sky in order to maximise Rule 4 deductions, under which a certain amount of money is taken out of winnings to balance the effect of the non-runner and the increased chances of winning for the other runners.However, despite finding that Ladbrokes had “failed to appropriately review all information available to them prior to initially providing the Gambling Commission with what were proven to be inaccurate explanations as to the reasons for the price shortening on Tango Sky”, the regulator stopped short of imposing a fine and instead wrote to the bookmaker to “provide them with advice in relation to their conduct”.The regulator said that although the trader had acted against company policy, Ladbrokes had not contravened the commission’s LCCP licensing rules.“The outcome was conditional on our ability to use the case to provide wider industry messaging on the issue,” a commission spokesman told iGamingBusiness.com. “A fine was not appropriate as no actual licence condition breach had occurred.”The spokesman added that Ladbrokes had taken positive steps following the incident, including making revisions to its sports-betting integrity policies and undertaking refresher training courses with all of its trading staff.The fact that the incident only affected two customers, resulted in a negligible net gain of £7.70 for the bookmaker and occurred before the commission’s public statements about the fair application of Rule 4 were also highlighted as mitigating factors in the context of imposing a financial penalty.However, the spokesperson confirmed that changes could be made to the Rule 4 licensing regulations if further incidents occur in the future – not just involving Ladbrokes.“We have taken proportionate and appropriate action having considered all the circumstances involved,” the spokesman added.“Group online brands – including GVC brands Bwin and SportingBet – now have a Rule 4 approach of application at time of bet placement rather than horse withdrawal. Coral retail also has this approach, with Ladbrokes to follow in due course aligned to introduction of new premises software. The approach mitigates the risk of misuse of Rule 4.“We have also taken into consideration the fact that, due to their own internal audit processes, Ladbrokes did comply with the LCCP requirements in relation to reporting the sports betting integrity concerns… before the race in question commenced.” Regulator claims fine wouldn’t have been appropriate following Ladbrokes Rule 4 probe Regions: UK & Ireland 5th July 2018 | By contenteditor Topics: Legal & compliance Email Addresslast_img read more

While things are looking better, some problems may persist. Eric Miller, with DuPont Pioneer, says a mostly dry weekend and a hot and dry week ahead is allowing plant ’17 to head toward conclusion, “Most of the corn planting got finished for the first time and first time replant. Right now some growers are considering if they want to try a 3rd re-plant.” He added, in NE Indiana soybean, planting could be wrapped up by the end of this week. USDA says 91% of Indiana corn and 75% of Hoosier soybeans have been planted.Miller says the warm, dry weather has helped the early planted crops to revive and thrive, “Especially for the corn planted in the Easter time-frame, it is really making the transition from the seed to the root system. You can really see the signs of the plants reaching into the fertilizer band.”  The USDA reported on Monday that 46% of Indiana corn was rated as good to excellent while 49% was rated fair to poor, a slight improvement over a week ago.While the soils are drying and the flooding is reseeding, Miller says we are still deal with the impacts of a very cold and wet spring, “We still need to monitor for seedling blight issues. Parts of the field that stayed wet longer have been showing more signs of seedling blight.” He added that thin stands may also present problems with weed control as we move through the growing season.Listen to the complete DuPont Pioneer agronomy report under the agronomy tab.

Stalled investigation into threats against TV journalists

first_img February 1, 2018 Find out more April 9, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Stalled investigation into threats against TV journalists June 12, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Organisation News to go further News Reporters Without Borders is worried about the lack of progress in investigations into violence against journalists and the climate of impunity resulting from the slowness of judicial and police procedures. Its concern has been reinforced by the threats received in recent weeks by two journalists working for the ATB television network’s regional office in the city of Cochabamba (370 km west of La Paz).Two weeks ago, Escarley Pacheco discovered a death threat at her home in the form of a blood-stained letter with a bullet that “has your name on it,” the letter said. A week before that, José Miguel Manzaneda found a blood-stained message that just said: “Watch yourself, JM.”In the course of investigating police corruption, ATB Cochabamba’s reporters have exposed several cases of alleged irregularities and abuses by on-duty police officers. They include the alleged rape of a woman by seven policemen and the presence of policemen in brothels during working hours.Last September, the city’s police chief threatened Pacheco after she asked him about his ex-wife’s claims that he had subjected her to physical and psychological violence.President Evo Morales immediately called for an investigation into the latest threats and interior minister Hugo Moldiz offered ATB “all the necessary guarantees so that its journalists can do their work.” But the police and judicial investigation has made no progress. At the same time, more and more threats and insults are being made against ATB and its journalists on social networks.“More than three weeks have gone by since the first threat and we are worried to see the investigation at a virtual standstill,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We urge the authorities to bring those responsible for threats and violence against journalists to justice in order to end the impunity they enjoy. The justice system’s slowness or inaction is only too often a contributing factor in the failure to punish abuses against news providers in Bolivia.”Reporters Without Borders has monitored half a dozen judicial investigations into violent attacks and murders of Bolivian journalists that have been marked by unjustified delays.No conclusive findings have ever been reported to the family of Carlos Quispe, who died from injuries he received in a mob attack on his radio station in March 2008, or on the double-murder of brother-and-sister journalists Verónica and Victor Hugo Peñasco in El Alto, a city adjoining La Paz, in February 2012.And there is still no progress in the investigations into the October 2012 arson attack on Radio Popular in Yacuiba (near the Argentine border in the southern department of Tarija) and the January 2014 disappearance of Cristian Mariscal Calvimontes, who worked for Tarija-based Red Plus TV.Bolivia is ranked 94th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Ever since their arrest, they have apologized for working without press visas and have done everything possible to satisfy the demands of the local police.If brought to trial, they are facing the possibility of five-year jail sentences for the immigration violation.“Bourrat and Dandois should be treated like other journalists who have been arrested in similar conditions in the past,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “In other words, they should be expelled quickly. The threat of a trial for a routine visa violation suggests that the local authorities are trying to set an example that will deter all other foreign journalists in the future.”Bourrat and Dandois are professional journalists who have always acted with integrity in the course of long careers. A freelance video reporter, Bourrat is the daughter of the well-known TF1 reporter Patrick Bourrat, who was killed while reporting in Kuwait in 2002.

Saluran milik negara Prancis France 2 menyiarkan beberapa laporannya pada bulan Januari 2013. Semua stasiun utama TV Perancis telah menyiarkan laporan wartawan serbabisa ini dalam 12 tahun terakhir, percaya bahwa liputan dia inovatif dan obyektif tentang berbagai subyek. Hasil liputannya termasuk: “catatan Wisata di Irlandia” (Arte, 2005), “Penyelamatan Gempa di Pakistan” (Prancis 5, 2005) dan “Pemberontakan oleh imigran gelap” di Amerika Serikat (Arte, 2007).

Di Papua mereka menghubungi beberapa aktivis, karenanya mereka dihadapkan pada kemungkinan tuntutan subversi dan destabilisasi. Secepatnya otoritas Perancis dan stasiun TV Perancis-Jerman Arte mengkonfirmasi identitas mereka, bahwa mereka berada di Papua untuk melakukan liputan. Pejabat imigrasi mengatakan kepada media massa, kemarin, bahwa penahanan mereka telah diperpanjang selama 40 hari. Dan berkas perkara, dalam beberapa hari, akan dilimpahkan ke kejaksaan di Jayapura, ibukota provinsi Papua, di mana dua wartawan tersebut ditahan. Pengacara mereka, Aristo Pangaribuan, mengatakan mereka bisa diadili karena pelanggaran peraturan imigrasi, yang telah mereka akui. Sejak penangkapan, keduanya telah meminta maaf karena bekerja tanpa visa pers dan telah mememenuhi segala tuntutan polisi setempat. Jika dibawa ke pengadilan, mereka menghadapi kemungkinan lima tahun hukuman penjara atas pelanggaran imigrasi. “Bourrat dan Dandois harus diperlakukan seperti wartawan lain yang telah ditangkap dalam kondisi yang sama di masa lalu,” tegas sekjen Reporters Without Borders Christophe Deloire. “Dengan kata lain, mereka harus dipulangkan segera. Ancaman tuntutan pelanggaran visa menunjukkan bahwa pemerintah daerah mencoba untuk memberi contoh untuk menghalangi semua wartawan asing lain di masa depan.”Bourrat dan Dandois adalah wartawan profesional yang selalu bertindak dengan integritas dalam perjalanan karir yang panjang.

Dr. Anthony R. Fellow, President of the PACCD Board of Trustees, had the following comment regarding the terms of agreement between Dr. Rocha and the Board of Trustees:The terms of the severance package are in the best interests of all parties. The financial and other components are consistent with severance terms for U.S. chief executive officers overseeing organizations with budgets of over a hundred million dollars.Dr. Rocha was hired at a time when strong leadership was needed for the District. The College had had three presidents in as many years, infrastructure progress had stalled, and the state was suffering a severe financial crisis.Dr. Rocha completed long-stalled construction projects, saw reaffirmation of the College’s accreditation and won agreement on an educational master plan through shared governance. Despite challenges and concerns that Dr. Rocha faced from various College constituent groups, with the support of the Board, he continued in his mission to improve the College.After four years of dedicated service, the Board and Dr. Rocha agreed that his leadership had brought PCC to a place where the reins could be turned over and in order to maintain the momentum his leadership created, it is in the best interests of both the College and Dr. Rocha for him to retire from PCC to pursue teaching and writing. In the spirit of this mutual decision and in recognition of his service to the College, he and the Board reached agreement on terms for his retirement.The Board of Trustees congratulates Dr. Rocha on his achievements at PCC, and wishes him well in his years beyond his service here.”last_img read more

Grounding-line retreat of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet from inner Pine Island Bay

first_imgIce loss from the marine-based, potentially unstable West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) contributes to current sea-level rise and may raise sea level by ≤3.3 m or even ≤5 m in the future. Over the past few decades, glaciers draining the WAIS into the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE) have shown accelerated ice flow, rapid thinning, and fast retreat of the grounding line (GL). However, the long-term context of this ice loss is poorly constrained, limiting our ability to accurately predict future WAIS behavior. Here we present a new chronology for WAIS retreat from the inner continental shelf of the eastern ASE, based on radiocarbon dates from three marine sediment cores. The ages document a retreat of the GL to within ∼100 km of its modern position before ca. 10,000 calibrated (cal.) yr B.P. This early deglaciation is consistent with ages for GL retreat from the western ASE. Our new data demonstrate that, in contrast to the Ross Sea, WAIS retreat from the ASE shelf was largely complete by the start of the Holocene. Our results further suggest either slow GL retreat from the inner ASE shelf throughout the Holocene, or that any episodes of fast GL retreat must have been short-lived. Thus, today’s rapid retreat may be exceptional during the Holocene and may originate in recent changes in regional climate, ocean circulation, or ice-sheet dynamics.last_img read more
