ATG and BOS CEOs in war of words over government favouritism claims

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “All credit to you for protecting the interests of your members, but slandering ATG and the horse game will not enrich your members,”  Skarplöth (pictured) said that comment was “something [he] want[ed] to try to address before the end of the year”. Since then, ATG has been broadly supportive of the cap, while many others – including BOS – have been vocal in their opposition. This week, Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen fined ATG for falling foul of the deposit cap regulations. It found that while a player could not play casino games if they set a deposit limit of more than SEK5,000, players could easily raise and lower their limit to get around the provision and play casino games with up to SEK50,000 in weekly deposits. Skarplöth’s statement comes in response to a comment from BOS chief executive Gustaf Hoffstedt in Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in October. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Casino regulation Legal Regulation Responsible gambling Horse racing This government intervention, he said, was typically in ATG’s favour and to the detriment of the rest of the sector. Regulation In addition, he responded to Hoffstedt’s criticism of the fact Sweden’s controversial SEK5,000 deposit cap only applies to online casino. Previously, the cap was meant to apply to all gambling products, but following opposition from ATG, sports betting and other non-casino verticals were made exempt. Hasse Lord Skarplöth 11th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Address Tags: ATG Branschföreningen för Onlinespel Hasse Lord Skarplöth Gustaf Hoffstedt “We should also agree that gambling on horses drives problem gambling to a much lesser extent is what online casinos do, unless otherwise there is research and statistics that prove it. It is quite probable that this is the reason why gambling on horses was exempted from certain restrictions. Not at all as ‘incomprehensible’ as Gustaf wanted to claim.” “The business that is either state-controlled or owned is treated more leniently than the private gaming industry,” he said. Finally, Skarplöth said that negative comments about ATG would not do anything to help the private gambling operators that are members of BOS. Hoffstedt, meanwhile, rejected Skarplöth’s comment that the best operators will always win out. Instead, he said, those who face the strictest government regulation are at a significant disadvantage. AB Trav Och Galopp chief executive Hasse Lord Skarplöth has hit out at trade association Branscheforenigen för Onlinespel (BOS), arguing claims ATG benefits from favourable governmental treatment are unfounded. He said that ownership was not a deciding factor in which operators are the most successful. Instead, he said, success in the open gaming market was determined simply by the quality of offering. Skarplöth said it should be clear that betting was not as conducive to harm as online casino. “I always remind politicians, gambling operators and other stakeholders that it is the consumer that at the end of the day decides where she wants to place her bets, not the regulator nor any gambling operator,” he said. I agree with Hans Skarplöth to that extent that it is the costumer’s experience of excitement, hassle-free and safe gambling that determines where to gamble. But I disagree – or at least believe that Hans Skarplöth seriously underestimates – the impact of governmental restrictions when it comes to customer experience and where to place your bets.” ATG and BOS CEOs in war of words over government favouritism claims Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden “It’s not slanderous, as Skarplöth says, to highlight that the government has favoured gambling operators with close ties to the government, in ATG’s case with a president and board majority appointed by the government,” Hoffstedt said. “The modus operandi has primarily been to exclude those companies’ main gambling products from further restrictions. This is an obvious fact that anyone can observe.” “Customers will never choose a game provider based on who owns the company,” he said. “They will choose the company that offers the most fun, most beautifully designed, most exciting gaming experiences and at the same time show that they want the customer well. Some will just want to play on horses, others just on casino and sports, some on a bit of each. So maybe life is not so unfair after all.”last_img read more

Stock market crash: I’d buy these 3 FTSE 100 stocks for the long term

first_img G A Chester has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Softcat. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by G A Chester I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The stock market crash may or may not be over. The volatility of stocks could continue in the short term. This is because of the uncertainty over how long the Covid-19 pandemic will last. However, I’m seeing an abundance of attractive investment opportunities for long-term investors at current prices.With his in mind, here are three FTSE 100 stocks I’d buy today. I believe they’ll deliver big rewards in the coming years and decades. As such, I’d forget short-term volatility, and buy Rentokil Initial (LSE: RTO), Softcat (LSE: STC), and Whitbread (LSE: WTB) for the long term.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Key demographic trendsRentokil posted strong numbers in its annual results on 27 February. It also said: “Looking forward into the new decade, key demographic trends such as urbanisation will enlarge our global pest control and hygiene markets.”The Covid-19 outbreak and stock market crash escalated rapidly after the results. However, I was impressed by the company’s Q1 trading update last week. Particularly its strategy for managing the business through the pandemic. For example, it previously had 1,000 specialist hygiene technicians. In just over three weeks, it’s re-trained a further 7,000 employees to perform disinfection and deep clean services.Parts of Rentokil’s business have been adversely impacted by Covid-19. However, I’m confident about its survivability. Hong Kong, where virus restrictions are being lifted, saw revenue growth of 34.5% in Q1. The long-term outlook is bright, in my view, and the shares, at 435.4p, are at a 17% discount to their high of less than two months ago.Stock market crash outperformerTechnology firm Softcat posted strong half-year results on 17 March. The provider of IT infrastructure products and services also said: “To date we have not seen a material impact from the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.”Management commented positively on the outlook:“Given the strength of our business model, lack of any bank debt and a strong cash position, we will continue to invest in our business, and are confident in our ability to continue to build market share and drive profitable growth over the longer term.”Management has since turned somewhat more cautious. It said it’s taking “a prudent stance on cash conservation.” Nevertheless, I think this is another firm with strong near-term survival credentials, and exciting long-term growth prospects. The shares, at 1,111p, are at a 12% discount to their high in February, outperforming the FTSE 100.Stock market crash victimThe share price of Premier Inn owner Whitbread has fared rather more badly in this market crash than Softcat’s, Rentokil’s and the Footsie. At 2,700p, it’s at a massive 48% discount to its 52-week high.On 24 March, the company said: “Trading… has been materially adversely impacted by Covid-19.” Having already temporarily closed its pubs and restaurants businesses, it also announced the temporary closure of all its Premier Inn hotels in the UK with immediate effect. It said its nascent chain in Germany would also close.However, the company had good headroom on its funding facilities going into the lockdown. It also confirmed on Friday it’s eligible for the UK Government’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility.I think the business will survive. I also think it can repeat the multi-decade success of Premier Inn UK in its new market of Germany. As such, I reckon the deeply discounted share price in this market crash is highly attractive for long-term investors.

Perched at the top of a wooded knoll in the Hudson Valley, the Lantern Ridge House accentuates mountain views while camouflaging itself in the densely forested environment. At night, the typically obscured house becomes a beacon for passing cars and a guiding light for our homeward-bound clients. The home is focused on a single gathering space through which the 2,200 SF structure becomes at once intimate and expansive, private and public. Oriented to face both sunrise and sunset, this hinge point is created by the convergence of two private wings that contain separated accommodations for our clients and their guests. A continuous wood ceiling shelters an exterior deck and the glass façade, which focuses expansive views, connects the clients with the immediate natural environment, and provides a consistently sunlit space.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfThe project’s strong connection to the environment provided opportunities to utilize materials and technologies that would enhance and sustain the very nature from which the house draws its strength. The angled roof maximizes daylight in winter and minimizes solar heating in summer, while strategically placed windows and doors allow summer breezes to cool the house. In-floor radiant heat and an efficient wood stove keep the home cozy during snowy upstate winters. The pine ceiling and dark siding, which integrate the house within the surrounding forest, were sourced from a local mill, and the concrete floors provide a durable finish. The entryway to the house boasts a handcrafted bench made from a tree formerly on the property—designed by the architect and built by the contractors, the bench embodies the collective spirit of the house.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Brad FeinknopfThe primary goal of the project was to create a home that responds to and enhances its natural surroundings while catering to the flexible needs of a client that craves both private reflection and social engagement.Save this picture!© Brad FeinknopfProject gallerySee allShow lessPetterson Dantas’ Illustrations Are a Colorful Ode to Oscar NiemeyerMiscPetition Launched to Save Moscow’s Shukhov TowerArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783220/lantern-ridge-house-studio-mm-architect Clipboard Save this picture!© Brad Feinknopf+ 18 Share United States 2015 Photographs Houses Area:  2200 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lantern Ridge House / Studio MM Architect “COPY” “COPY”center_img ArchDaily Photographs:  Brad Feinknopf Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lantern Ridge House / Studio MM ArchitectSave this projectSaveLantern Ridge House / Studio MM Architect Year:  Projects CopyHouses•Kerhonkson, United States Architects: Studio MM Architect Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783220/lantern-ridge-house-studio-mm-architect Clipboard CopyAbout this officeStudio MM ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKerhonksonUnited StatesPublished on March 19, 2016Cite: “Lantern Ridge House / Studio MM Architect” 19 Mar 2016.

Journalist given two-month suspended sentence for defamation

first_img February 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist given two-month suspended sentence for defamation Reporters Without Borders expressed its indignation after Ljubica Letinic, a journalist on Croatian state television and radio (RTC) and correspondent for the worldwide press freedom organisation, was given a two-month suspended prison sentence.The sentence, confirmed on 10 February 2005 by the supreme court in the southern city of Split ran “contrary to international standards” the organisation said.”This sentence highlights unacceptable legislation that allows a journalist to be given a prison term for a press offence, at a time when Croatia is due to open membership talks with the EU on 17 March this year.”If Zagreb wants to join the European Union in 2007, Croatian journalists should no longer be at risk of being imprisoned simply for doing their job,” it said.The case goes back to 18 March 20002 when Letinic produced a six-minute report, broadcast on the talk show “Latinica” on RTC, in which she alleged corruption against a number of well known figures in Split. These included the city mayor and businessman Jozo Parcina, who reportedly obtained luxury apartments belonging to the local council.

The organisation said the judgement ran contrary to international standards and it questioned the suitability for EU membership in 2007 of a country that imposes prison sentences for press offences. The Split municipal court gave Letinic a two-month suspended prison sentence for defamation of Parcina on 12 July 2004 and she subsequently lodged an appeal.”I thought the sentence would be upheld on appeal because the municipal court in Split is really problematical. The corruption that I raised in my report also involved the Split municipal court” she told Reporters Without Borders after the appeal verdict.A journalist with the weekly Feral Tribune, Vladimir Matijanic, was given a suspended three-month prison sentence by the Split municipal court, on 11 November 2004, for defaming footballer Igor Stimac, suspected of involvement in criminal activities.Croatian law currently allows prison sentences of up to one year for defamation.

About BELLUS Health (www.bellushealth.com) BELLUS Health is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of chronic cough and other hypersensitization-related disorders. The Company’s product candidate, BLU-5937, is being developed for the treatment of chronic cough and chronic pruritus. Chronic cough, the lead indication for BLU-5937, is a cough lasting more than eight weeks and is associated with significant adverse physical, social and psychosocial effects on health and quality of life. It is estimated that approximately 26 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic cough with approximately 3 million having refractory chronic cough lasting for more than a year and approximately 6 million having refractory chronic cough lasting more than 8 weeks and under one year. There is no specific therapy approved for refractory chronic cough and current treatment options are limited. Chronic pruritus, the second indication for BLU-5937, is commonly known as chronic itch and is an irritating sensation that leads to scratching and persists for longer than six weeks, which can be debilitating and can significantly impact quality of life. It is a hallmark of many inflammatory skin diseases, including atopic dermatitis (“AD”). It is estimated that AD afflicts approximately 5% of adults in the United States. Despite currently available treatments targeting AD, there continues to be a lack of options targeting the burden of pruritus in AD patients.

Evolving Foreclosure Litigation Strategy

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Florida courts have recently clarified that, where a complaint is dismissed without prejudice and the dismissal does not operate as an adjudication on the merits, plaintiff may not have to send a new breach letter prior to instituting a subsequent action to foreclose the mortgage.Foreclosure can be a complex legal area because of the nuance involved in the practice. Strategic decisions need to be made to minimize cost and exposure. A great counselor steps in the shoes of the opposing attorney, analyzing the case from both sides and always staying a chess move ahead. Such strategies can be simple as proactively seeking additional relief in orders, how you conduct motion practice, or dropping certain parties that will delay the cases if deficiency is not an option.The case law surrounding how a plaintiff can limit its exposure to attorney’s fees liability is growing. Decisions about whether to voluntarily dismiss a claim or ask that it be dismissed without prejudice can be important. In HSBC Bank USA v. Leone, 2019 Fla. App. LEXIS 6753, 2019 WL 1967650, No. 2D17-2851 (Fla. 2d DCA May 3, 2019), plaintiff appealed an involuntary dismissal of its foreclosure case. Plaintiff had filed a second foreclosure case after the first was dismissed without prejudice. The trial court dismissed the claim on the basis that no new notice of default was sent. The trial court found that a “new default notice was required to be mailed prior to filing the second foreclosure action.” The court’s order was appealed and the appellate court reversed.The Second District Court of Appeal provided that the issue was one of contract interpretation, specifically, one must look to the plain meaning of the mortgage. Analyzing paragraph twenty-two (22) of the standard form mortgage, the court looked to the phrase “on or before the date specified in the notice.” The court discounted the position that cases questioning the application of the statute of limitations would require that a second notice be sent.Where a foreclosure case had been dismissed without prejudice and a subsequent complaint to enforce the note and foreclose the mortgage has been filed, there is no need to send a new breach letter prior to filing if the default was never cured. However, in the event that the dismissal was with prejudice, a new notice may be required.

He was willing to take a cargo flight as well since movement around the country is restricted. He sought directions to concerned authorities to allow him to take a cargo flight or make any other arrangement for his travel to Assam.Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appeared for the Union of India and submitted that it is not only the case of the petitioner but there are several other persons who have passed away, some after being afflicted by Covid- 19 and some for other reasons, but in no case would passengers be permitted on flights in view of the specific directions of the Union of India and the Order issued by the Director General of Civil Aviation. Only flights specified in the Order of DGCA dated March 23, 2020 are permitted. Furthermore, ASG contended that the petitioner’s request cannot be accommodated within the permissible flights detailed in the said order and no exception can be made in his case. However, if the petitioner is desirous of travelling by road, the Union of India will permit passage by road if the petitioner so desires. He further submits that the necessary instructions will be given to the Pune Collectorate and necessary steps thereafter be taken to facilitate the petitioner’s travel by road.Court accepted ASG Singh’s statement and thereafter directed the petitioner to apply for permission to appropriate authorities specified by the Union of India once he decides to travel by road and also inform the authorities about the route he intends to take to reach Lanka, Assam so that the authorities would be aware of the various entry and exit points in different states through which the petitioner would pass.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
