Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Email Address 3rd April 2020 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Germany’s leading sportsbook operator body the Deutscher Sportwettenverband (DSWV) has reacted with dismay after the Darmstadt Administrative Court halted the process to award the country’s federal sports betting licences.The licensing process was challenged by Vierklee, an Austrian sportsbook operator, which claimed the process, overseen by the Regional Council of Darmstadt, was being conducted with a lack of transparency and was discriminatory.While the full verdict is yet to be published, it represents a last-minute hurdle that casts doubt on whether operators will ever take bets under third amended State Treaty on Gambling.The Regional Council said it would assess the ruling once it was published, before it could make a decision on whether to appeal.“We can confirm the verdict,” it said. “However, we cannot tell you anything regarding consequences right now, since we don’t have/know the detailled reasons of the verdict yet. But for sure we will be evaluating whether we appeal the verdict of the court.”DSWV president Mathias Dahms described the court decision as “a big blow” to the association’s members.This, he said, meant operators faced another significant delay, having been waiting since 2012 to operate in the regulated market.“It is particularly annoying considering licences could have been awarded a long time ago.”It comes weeks after the Regional Council, the Hessian state authority responsible for processing licence applications, had claimed to be close to issuing its first licences. In February it said around 30 operators had applied, with a further 20 expressing an interest in doing so, which would have resulted in around 99% of German sports betting activity moving into the legal market.This was to be accompanied by the first prohibition orders, which would see internet service providers required to block access to unlicensed sites.It would have brought almost eight years of legal wrangling and debate to an end – at least in the short term – should the market have opened. While the State Treaty was originally drafted in 2012, its implementation was delayed by challenges against the legislation.Lawmakers finally reached a compromise in February 2019, agreeing to bring the Treaty into effect for 18 months, from January 2020. This tweaked version, with the original 20-licence cap removed, is due to be replaced by a more expansive framework in which casino and poker are permitted from 1 July, 2021.However, the restrictive controls set out in the third State Treaty are to be retained in the new treaty, the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV) that was approved by state lawmakers in March.This will see in-play wagering limited to markets on final results and next goalscorer, something that the DSWV has previously criticised.Online slots, meanwhile, have stakes limited to €1 per spin, and states will have a veto over whether to offer online casino. They will also have the option to hand their lotteries a monopoly for the vertical.But as a result of the court challenge, and with the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic shutting down all major sport, it is unclear whether sportsbook licences will ever be issued under the third State Treaty.“Sports betting providers in Germany are once again denied access to a regulated market and thus legal certainty,” Dahms said in conclusion. “The applicants have once again invested a lot of effort and energy into the application process and prepared for the regulated market.“I also feel sorry for the employees in the Hessian Ministry of the Interior and the Darmstadt Regional Council, who have been very committed in the past few months to finally making the licensing process a success,” he added. “We hope that the authorities can continue, and quickly issue permits.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliancelast_img read more

Paul Thorburns legendary penalty kick from 1986

first_imgWednesday Feb 13, 2008 Paul Thorburns legendary penalty kick from 1986 Last weekend in the Six Nations Wales were awarded a Penalty close to the half way line. The commentators jokingly said ‘Bring back Paul Thorburn’.For those of you who heard that comment and didn’t really understand what it meant, I’ve managed to track down this excellent quality video of a moment of legend, thanks to a Rugbydump fan who sent me the link.In the 1986 Five Nations game between Wales and Scotland at Cardiff Arms park, Welsh fullback Paul Thorburn put over one of the biggest kicks you will ever see, at just over 60 meters.The commentary of the legendary Bill McLaren makes it even more special, combined with the fact that he kicked it from a divot he created in the grass – there were no proper tees back then.An amazing feat that will go down in Welsh rugby folklore for being probably the biggest kick to ever be seen on the international rugby stage.And to rub salt into the wound, he followed it up with an easy 49m penalty a few minutes later.

The City of Paris decided to create a Center of Emergency Accommodation for homeless in the Bois de Boulogne, next to the most expensive neighborhood of Paris. The project was very political and met a strong resistance by the wealthy inhabitants of the 16th Arrondissement of Paris who didn’t want at first to have any “poor or refugees” in their neighborhood. Every legal and illegal moves were made, including two fire during the construction. After being opened, the inhabitants finally changed their mind and were very happy to have those “nice new people” in their neighborhood, flooding them with gifts and clothes…Save this picture!© Cyrille Hanappe, Olivier LeclercqThe center is temporary and will exist only for three years. It is located on a declassified road, to avoid the legal complication of being situated in such a sensitive zone.Save this picture!© Cyrille Hanappe, Olivier LeclercqThe technical conception included the temporary status of the construction but the project was nevertheless designed as if it was permanent. This design of permanency was important as the architect wanted the building to be fully inserted in the city and the neighborhood, not showing its temporary status, as they didn’t want the inhabitants to feel different of the other citizens of the surroundings.Save this picture!© Cyrille Hanappe, Olivier LeclercqThe building was prefabricated. 117 full wood modules with a high level of insulation were delivered on site to offer 200 accommodation organized in individual or familial rooms with common and shared rooms . The assembled modules form nine blocks that are separated by rifts that are either void or filled with stairs and walkways, creating openings toward the Bois de Boulogne.Save this picture!© Cyrille Hanappe, Olivier LeclercqThe architect of AIR – Cyrille Hanappe & Olivier Leclercq have developed over the years a specialty on housing for excluded people (migrants, homeless, refugees, roma people). They insist on the importance of giving an image of sustainability to the building dedicated to people in need of stability and to give it the same level of attention that permanent housing. This goes in the treatment of the facade, made out of wood with a variation of colors in relation with the surrounding trees, on the creation of common rooms with natural lighting that were not in the original command of the client, on the generous size of the windows.Save this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!Plan 07That house feeling is confirmed by one of the inhabitants, a mother that found shelter there with her child : “I never lived in an ecological house and I’m very happy of doing that here : I open my window, I can see the trees, I can hear the birds…”Save this picture!© Cyrille Hanappe, Olivier LeclercqProject gallerySee allShow lessImpluvium Minora House / CU4 ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsAndrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation Unveil Experimental Madrid SchoolArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Increased Funding for Biofuels

first_imgHome Energy Increased Funding for Biofuels By Gary Truitt – Jul 2, 2012 Facebook Twitter SHARE Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Heather Zichal announced Monday the availability of up to 30-million dollars in funding for commercial scale advanced drop-in biofuels through the Defense Production Act and Energy Department. National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says the initiative is great for rural America because it helps create more jobs and keeps more money in the U.S. – rather than overseas. Johnson says it also makes sense to utilize home-grown fuel rather than relying on foreign oil – and increased use of biofuels helps moderate fuel costs.

All Irish citizens encouraged to vote in referendum

Our work centre’s on ensuring that the human rights of all persons are promoted and protected, regardless of their status,” explained Aideen Roche of Doras Luimní.“We strive for a society in which all persons are respected as equals and we urge everyone to engage in this discussion by having their voices heard,” she said.A letter circulated last week to Ireland’s Muslim community by Head Imam Shaykh Umar Al-Qadri, pointed out that being entitled to vote and participate in a political process is a “privilege”. He clarified that the referendum is not about changing Islamic marriage, but changing marriage in the Irish constitution.According to Al-Qadri, the Islamic tradition has always acknowledged that some people may have “homosexual impulses and this is not considered a sin in Islam”.“To act on these sexual impulses is considered a sin in Islam,” he declared.Irish Muslims were urged to keep in mind both the Islamic stance on homosexuality and the consequences of the amendment for society ahead of next month’s referendum.

Commissioners tour Rock Building

first_img Pike County Commissioners Homer Wright and Charlie Harris joined community member David Helms, center, for a tour of the Rock Building on Thursday. Helms is working with a grassroots effort to restore and revive the Rock Building.Following a tour of the Rock Building Thursday afternoon, Pike County Commission Chairman Homer Wright said he could see a light at the end of the tunnel.Perhaps a dim light, but nonetheless, a light.Wright, Pike County Commissioner Charlie Harris and David Helms, a concerned citizen, toured the building with Alex Whaley of Whaley Construction Company and Chuck Ingram with McKee & Associates Architects in an effort to determine to feasibility of preserving the building.The Pike Activities Building, commonly called the Rock Building, was heavily damaged by an arsonist’s fire nearly 20 years ago. Left primarily to time and the elements, the condition of the building has continued to deteriorate.“We just wanted Mr. Whaley to tell us if the building can be saved and what it will take, money wise, to do it,” Wright said. “This building has been an issue before us for a long time and it’s time to do something, if there’s still time.”Harris said the building should never have been allowed to get in its present condition.“The insurance paid off between $150,000 and $175,000,” Harris said. “That money should have been used to put a roof on the building and it wouldn’t be in this kind of condition today.”But “should have done” is not productive thinking so Harris said it’s time to “get moving” and do what needs to be done to preserve the building that has great significance to the Pike County community.“We just want to know if it can be done,” he said.Whaley said that anything is possible but it’s not going to come without a cost.“First, we need to find a use for the building,” Whaley said. “A lot of creative things can be done with the building – with enough money.“What is most valuable about this building is the nostalgia. The exterior walls are intact and that’s good. We know that it’s got to have roof but, before we move ahead, we’ve got to know the intended use of the building.”Helms suggested the citizens of Pike County be given an opportunity for input into the use of the building.“This building was built with rocks that people hauled in from the fields all across the county,” Harris said in agreement. “The people should have a say in what this building becomes.”Helms suggested that each Pike County Commissioner poll his district as to possible uses for the Rock Building and bring those suggestions to the Commission.Wright said the comments from Whaley and Ingram were encouraging and he believes the restoration of the Rock Building is doable.“It’s time to get it done,” he said.
