Denmark blocks access to 16 illegal sites

first_img30th April 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Danish courts have blocked access to 16 illegal gambling websites following requests from the Danish Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden).A District Court ruled in favour of the regulator in March after it requested action be taken to block 17 unlicensed gambling sites. One of these 17 sites pulled out of the market before the court’s decision was announced. “We work to protect players against illegal gambling, and we also need to ensure that the operators who are licenced to offer gambling in Denmark can run their businesses under orderly conditions,” Spillemyndigheden director Morten Niels Jakobsen said. “That is why it is very important for us to clamp down on gambling offered without a licence.”Of the sites in question, two hosted real-money sports betting, seven offered online casino and a further seven offered esports skin betting.“Spillemyndigheden is particularly concerned with skin betting, as this type of game especially attracts young people under 18, who, via video games, may be exposed to elements from gambling,” the regulator said.The Gaming Authority expanded the scope of its search for potentially illegal content to include skin betting in 2018, over concerns that this may disproportionately affect minors.Spillemyndigheden noted that each operator was warned to cease Danish operations before the requests were filed in court, though only one of the 17 sites targeted did so.Since the most recent Danish Act on Gambling entered into force in 2012, Danish courts have blocked access to 90 websites, having never ruled against Spillemyndigheden in such a case.In 2019, Danish authorities shut down 25 unlicenced gambling sites. Danish courts have blocked access to 16 illegal gambling websites following requests from the Danish Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden).

Canterbury vs Hawkes Bay Air NZ Cup Semi Final

first_imgThursday Nov 5, 2009 Canterbury vs Hawkes Bay Air NZ Cup Semi Final Canterbury will host the Air New Zealand Cup Final after they comfortably beat Hawkes Bay 20-3 in the Semi last weekend in Christchurch.The game started with what would have been one of the fastest tries ever, as Sean Maitland fed the ball inside after some great hands, but it was not to be unfortunately.It didn’t take them long to make up for it though, scoring after 8 minutes through impressive lock Sam Whitelock. A Michael Paterson charge down then allowed Isaac Ross to dive over for an opportunist try.Hawkes Bay prop Sona Taumalolo was lucky to stay on the park after a ‘dip’ tackle went unpunished by referee Jonathan White. A few years back it probably would have been a good call, but these days rules are rules and you can’t lift a player like that any more.A Clint Newlands turnover allowed Canterbury to shirt it wide to speedster Maitland once again, who calmly fed the the supporting Stephen Brett for an excellent try which put them out of sight.Canterbury will play Wellington in the final on Saturday night, after they beat Southland in the other semi.“The boys are really excited about the challenge ahead. It will be difficult because Wellington are a very good side but we are determined to give it everything,” said head coach Rob Penney“This match should be an absolute cracker. Both teams like to run the ball so there will be no shortage of excitement. We hope to see a big crowd there to add to what will be a great atmosphere,” he added.Regarding the crowd, the AMI Stadium is currently undergoing construction ahead of the 2011 World Cup. Unfortunately it doesn’t look great on TV, but the crowd on the near side will be packed I’m sure.

A service road irrigates the hearth of the cluster. It is marked out on both sides by vegetated areas. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau The project is a hybrid space, between a square and a garden. Architecture Project We have imagined this project like a succession of strip parcel. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau At some places the strips are cut-out, only noticed thanks to a treatment on the floor that defines the outside space. At other places the lashes form the volume of the building; in fact we could say that the building is contained by those lashes. The whole cluster of houses is surrounded by a very porous fence which forms the bases of some accommodations. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau The frontages are made as the roofing, in a pearly and lacquered metal with wide waves. The delicacy of the metal corresponds to the idea of the initial folding. The structures in front of the frontages virtually stretch the volume of the lashes. Those structures are used as a support for a vertical plant wall and for the louvered shutters, in the roofing prolongation, that will protect the Southern frontages from the summer sunshine. Save this picture!Sections There are buildings, there are gardens. The outdoor spaces are punctuated by objects: trellising, log cabins,… Different varieties of fruit-trees are planted in each lash, coupled with the different shades of claddings; it offers a real diversity and a coloured quaking to the site. Likewise, the slight difference in the buildings implantation makes the whole place vibrate behind the aligned fence. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau Functioning The block is covered by three ways on the periphery. An intramural mixed way makes a loop that irrigates the heart of the block. The pedestrian alleys: They create practical and botanical visual openings from North to South. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau Parking The self-contained housing for purchase are situated on either sides of the square, in the heart of the block. They all have a garage and a ground parking space. North, the access to the garages is situated directly in the Frères Morane Street. South, the access to the garages is made through the internal servicing way. The rental self-contained accommodations are situated Eastern and Western of the block. Some have a ground parking place right in front of the house. Others have access to small parking pools (4 or 5 cars) that are sheltered with the same covering as the accommodations. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau Housing One-storey houses. The lounges, living-rooms, kitchens and storerooms are always on the ground floor. The bedrooms and the bathrooms are upstairs. The storerooms/toilets of the ground floor are equipped with shower siphon in order to convert this space into a bathroom. Like this, all the ground-floors form a large living area (living room + kitchen + bathroom) accessible from the ground level. Save this picture!© Stepháne Chalmeau All the living rooms are situated at the South and communicate directly with a small garden. In every garden, there is a small log cabin (made as the fence) to put away garden tools; and a cistern for rainwater that can be used to water the gardens. Outside areas The diversity of the outside spaces creates different type of intimacy compared to the housing and a hierarchy between public and private life. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis structuring is created by the presence of the central square, the pedestrian alleys, the small gardens next to living rooms, and the small courtyards. All those landscaped areas are more or less porous one to another, keeping in mind that we wanted to propose a smooth porous space, blend by various outside areas with different atmospheres.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe End of Car CultureArticles’Occupy Infrastructure’: MOMA PS1 Rockaway Call for Ideas Winning Proposal / Barkow …Unbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:45 Rue Rique Avoine, 86000 Poitiers, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

The terrain is characterized by being a kind of plateau between two slopes that fall towards the Ranco Lake in southeastern orientation, having there its main view towards the landscape. The site is dominated by a large Laurel and a coihue, in addition to preexisting rocks. The north orientation is located towards the upper level of this plateau, from where the winds and rain come in winter, while the south is towards the access and the neighboring site, from where the prevailing winds come in summer.Save this picture!© Nicolas Cruz TagleWith this, a curved wall is proposed that closes towards the hill of the west and opens towards the east, towards the lake, privileging the view and the morning sun, and avoiding the north winds and rains in winter and the winds from the south in summer. From this gesture, the volume of the 3 level house is created.Save this picture!© Nicolas Cruz TagleThe house seeks to accommodate 3 family generations, which is why the project makes use of the underground, where a bedroom / workshop and a bathroom are located, which also forms a concrete base that isolates the wooden structure from the ground.Save this picture!© Nicolas Cruz TagleThe first level contains the common spaces and the master bedroom, in addition to access through a chiflonera and a terrace roofed to the east. Meanwhile, on the second level there are four bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom located to the south and the others to the north joined by a bridge that balcones the double height of the main living space. This bridge has upper windows that provide light and sun in the afternoon.Save this picture!1 Level PlanSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!IsometricAs previously mentioned, a concrete base is proposed where a wooden structure modulated in a 122 cm grid is supported. Inside the house is covered with boards of mañio in walls and tepa in floors. In addition, black slate stone is used in the access and wet areas – bathrooms and kitchen. On the outside, the east façade is covered in a brown toned Northway fiber cement while the curved wall is covered in pre-painted black zinc, both with its corresponding ventilated air chamber. Save this picture!© Nicolas Cruz TagleThe achieved atmospheric quality is constituted by the wood’s intrinsic warmth and by the multiple ways in which the light filters inwards, cross views are promoted between the different spaces, oriented towards the landscape and contained by the light that falls on the boarding of the curved wall that surrounds the interior.Save this picture!© Nicolas Cruz TagleProject gallerySee allShow lessH3 / 314 Architecture StudioSelected ProjectsAlejandro Aravena Gives His Advice to Young ArchitectsArchitecture News Share Houses ArchDaily CT House / nicolasCRUZarquitectos Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917181/ct-house-nicolascruzarquitectos Clipboard “COPY” “COPY” CT House / nicolasCRUZarquitectosSave this projectSaveCT House / nicolasCRUZarquitectos CopyHouses•Puerto Nuevo, Chilecenter_img Year:  Architects: nicolasCRUZarquitectos Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/917181/ct-house-nicolascruzarquitectos Clipboard 2018 Area:  260 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Nicolas Cruz Tagle Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Chile Projects CopyAbout this officenicolasCRUZarquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesArquitectura del Sur de ChileWoodPuerto NuevoChilePublished on May 18, 2019Cite: “CT House / nicolasCRUZarquitectos” [Casa CT / nicolasCRUZarquitectos] 18 May 2019.

Indian journalist deliberately run down by truck, RSF calls for independent probe

first_imgNews News News IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources Organized crimeEnvironmentCorruptionWhistleblowersImpunityViolence IndiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources Organized crimeEnvironmentCorruptionWhistleblowersImpunityViolence Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Indian authorities to shed all possible light on the murder of Sandeep Sharma, a TV reporter who was deliberately run down by a dumper truck this morning in Bindh, in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, in a case apparently involving illegal sand mining and corrupt police. March 26, 2018 Indian journalist deliberately run down by truck, RSF calls for independent probe March 3, 2021 Find out more The journalist Sandeep Sharma was probably murdered for investigating the illegal sand mining mafia (photos: Twitter – Sam Panthaky / AFP). News A CCTV recording of his death leaves no doubt that the truck’s driver deliberately targeted Sandeep Sharma, who was riding a motorcycle.He worked for a national TV channel and had been investigating the so-called “sand mafia” – criminal rings that provide construction companies with sand taken from illegal mines and quarries, with effects that include violation of property rights, damage to the environment and widespread corruption.Sharma feared for his life and had recently reported receiving death threats. And he had accused a police officer of complicity with local sand mining mafia bosses, a claim supported by an audio recording that he had just made and disseminated.“The shocking manner in which Sandeep Sharma was murdered is a terrible warning to journalists who investigate the sand mining mafia phenomenon,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk.“We convey our support to his colleagues, who risk their lives to do their job as in other parts of India. The authorities must establish mechanisms for protecting journalists. In particular, we urge them to create an independent unit to investigate this appalling murder and bring those responsible to justice, including those who gave the orders. Murders of journalists go unpunished only too often in India.”Although Sharma was killed just a few metres from Kotwali police station, the police took around 20 minutes to get to the scene of his death, prompting concern among members of the Bindh Press Club about the possibility of complicity within the local authorities.Journalists who cover India’s sand mafia are often the victims of violent reprisals, especially in the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh. Karun Misra of the Jansandesh Times and Ranjan Rajdev of the Hindustan Daily were both killed by gunmen on motorcycles there in 2016 after covering illegal mining.Jagendra Singh died in June 2015 from burns he sustained during a police raid on his home after he investigated the involvement of Uttar Pradesh state officials in illegal mining. Another Uttar Pradesh journalist, Haider Khan, was beaten and then dragged behind a motorcycle for a hundred metres the same month after writing about land expropriations. Hemant Kumar Yadav was fatally shot in the chest by gunmen on a motorcycle in the same state in October 2015 in an apparent reprisal for his reporting.In all these cases, the investigations carried out by the police drew a blank and those who gave the orders remain unpunished.Aged 35, Sharma leaves two children aged 14 and 15. His murder came less than 24 hours after two other journalists, Navin Nischam and Vijay Singh, were killed in the northeastern state of Bihar by a local politician, who ran them down with 4WD vehicle.As a result of the frequent violence against journalists, India is ranked no higher than 136th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.center_img Help by sharing this information Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 to go further Follow the news on India Organisation April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media February 23, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

It includes the Pasadena Branch of the NAACP, the Pasadena-Foothill Chapter of the ACLU, All Saints Church, the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, ACT, Democrats of the Pasadena Foothills, the Arroyo Democratic Club, the Pasadena Latino Forum, and the Neighborhood Unitarian-Universalist Church.Click here to view a copy of the Van De Kamp letter to the City Council.

I also understand the challenges of pursuing medical education for adults over 40; at this age, people tend to have many responsibilities, such as working full-time jobs and caring for families, which make returning to a college or university extremely challenging,” states Dr. Basu. “Texans over the age of 40 are underrepresented in higher education, and, as this last year has highlighted, the need to create and fill medical positions is greater than ever.” All adults over the age of 40 living in Texas who plan to pursue a graduate degree and career in a qualifying medical field (*Note 1) are encouraged to apply for the $1,500 scholarship via a downloadable application beginning February 16, 2021. Learn more: https://www.basuplasticsurgery.com/scholarship-application-submission/ The awarded scholarship funds can be used at any college or university to offset the cost of tuition and educational expenses, including but not limited to supplies and textbooks, required technology, transportation costs, housing, and on-campus expenses. *(Note 1) Eligible degrees include: Doctorate (MD, DO, DPM, DDS, DMD, DPM, DMD, OD, PsyD, PharmD, DCM, DS, DPT, DSN, PhD, DNP), Nursing (RN, NP, CNM, CRNA, LPN), Master’s (MPH, MM, MMS, MN, MNA, MPharm, MPAS, MSN, MSM), and Physician’s Assistant (PA, PAC). Applications will be accepted through April 30, 2021. Submitted applications will be reviewed and vetted by the Basu Scholarship Committee, who will choose an award recipient based on the quality of the application and adherence to the scholarship requirements. The chosen recipient will be notified upon selection, and the award will be disbursed via a cash prize. “Older adults motivated to improve the lives of others by pursuing degrees and career paths in the medical field are an inspiration to us all,” says Dr. Basu. “I wish all of our applicants the best of luck and look forward to reviewing some undoubtedly impressive applications!” About Dr. Bob Basu: Dr. Basu is a board-certified plastic surgeon in the Houston, Texas area who has performed over 15,000 cosmetic procedures.
