Louisiana looks set to miss out on sports betting this year after the state’s House of Representatives rejected amendments to a fantasy sports bill that would have given citizens a vote on legalising wagering.House Bill 459 primarily focuses on legalising daily fantasy sports contests in the state, but having passed the House last month, was then amended by the Senate to also include the sports betting measure.The amendment set out plans to stage an election for Louisiana citizens to vote on whether the state should also progress with plans to legalise sports betting. It was approved in the Senate earlier this week by a vote of 24-13.Had it been approved by the House, and secured a majority of votes in the state, it would have cleared the way to implement the regulatory framework for sports betting set out in Senator Daniel Martiny’s Senate Bill 153.However, the House has moved quickly to reject the amended bill, unanimously voting it down 97-0 during a session yesterday (June 4), ahead of the end of the current legislative session on June 6.Read the full story on iGB North America.Image: Stuart Seeger Regions: US Louisiana Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Email Address 5th June 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter

This means in the home of Sunrisers Hyderabad, no one will be able to participate in any contest on Dream11 or any other fantasy platform. On September 25, the Andhra Pradesh government passed an ordinance to amend the Andhra Pradesh Gaming Act 1974. It came into force with immediate effect.Calling it the Andhra Pradesh Gaming (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020, the government of YS Jaganmohan Reddy prohibited (i) collection or soliciting of bets; (ii) receipt or distribution of winning or prizes in money or otherwise in respect of any wager or bet; (iii) any act which is intended to aid, induce, solicit or facilitate wagering or betting or such collection, soliciting, receipt or distribution and (iv) any act of risking money or playing stakes or otherwise on the result of a game or an event including on a game of skill.

“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Jonathan Smith | Wednesday, 11th November, 2020 The FTSE 100 has posted gains for nine straight days in a bounce-back stock market rally. Incredibly, the index was trading close to 5,500 points only a couple of weeks ago. From here, we’ve seen a very strong move higher, breaking above 6,300 points on Wednesday morning. Some individual performers have even exceeded the 15% gain in the FTSE 100 index. I wrote how both Rolls-Royce and IAG gained over 35% in a single day on Monday.The stock market rally will have come as a surprise to some, given the bleak UK economic outlook and the fresh English lockdown for November recently imposed. But if 2020 has taught me anything, it’s to expect the unexpected! From here, I feel there are several plausible reasons as to why the FTSE 100 could rally another 11% to 7,000 by year end.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…Optimism-fuelled stock market rallyThe two key drivers behind the short-term rally in the stock market are the US election result and the vaccine news. We saw a ‘Biden bounce’ after the former Vice-President secured enough votes to ensure he will be the next sitting President. This allowed the markets to price out the uncertainty of the election and move on. Regarding the vaccine, news that the joint effort from Pfizer and BioNTech has 90% effectiveness was also positive. Its rollout could allow many companies to perform much better in a shorter timeframe than was expected by investors.The optimism from the above events was not just a driver of a stock market rally over one day. This move has continued over several days and could easily carry on for longer. After all, the FTSE 100 index is still down around 16% from the start of the year. So there’s a lot of room to move higher before the index starts to look overbought.This stock market rally could also head higher if we hear other good news. The obvious one here would be a Brexit agreement. Any agreement could see the FTSE 100 spike higher. Sectors such as financial services and materials would likely lead the charge, but there are few firms that wouldn’t benefit from increased clarity on trade agreements between the UK and EU.Central bank stimulusAnother reason for the market continuing to rally is the amount of stimulus the Bank of England and other central banks are pumping into economies. We’re seeing a wide variety of measures and continued low interest rates. Such low rates encourage people to invest rather than sit on their cash due to the lack of opportunity cost. The high level of quantitative easing also means institutional investors have plenty of funds that need to be put to work. The logical place for it these are in the stock market.This becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, as the more the stock market rallies, the more money is invested into it. Rightly or wrongly, this can lead to a longer-term rally. So on the basis of the above, a 15% rally in two weeks could easily be followed another 11% in six weeks, which would take us to the 7,000 mark.

Josh Holmes, 22. David Harvey THE CLASH against former coach John Mitchell’s Lions will see just two changes to the starting 15 with Nick Cummins returning from injury and Alfie Mafi back in the side after an electrifying performance against the Rebels last week.Cummins returns on the wing after a week’s rest to recover from a quadriceps strain and will lead his side onto the field in his 50th Western Force and FxPro Super Rugby cap.“It’s great to see Nick reach the 50-game milestone and we are looking forward to seeing him back out there and making an impact on the wing,” said Emirates Western Force forwards coach Nick Stiles. “He started off the year in very good form but he fluctuated there for a couple of games and now we want him out on the field as much as possible.“Nick is a very strong ball-carrier. You look at our side this week with him, Napolioni Nalaga, Will Tupou and Rory Sidey and it’s evident we’ve got a lot of size. It’s up to us now to utilise their power and strength with their running to give us the best potential we can of winning.”Mafi’s impact from the bench against the Rebels was a pivotal turning point for the side as he injected some much needed speed and energy into the game with a try in the second half. This week will see him start at full-back against the Lions, with David Harvey moving back onto the bench.Saturday will be the Western Force’s last game before the bye in round 15 and a three-week break for the international Tests so the side is focused on bringing home a win against the Lions and finishing the season on a high. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “It would be great to hit the break on the back of our third win for the year and it would give us a really good target to finish the season off, freshen up and come back and play the last three games and win as many as we can,” said Stiles. “There are still four games to go and we’ve got to win as many of those games as we can because we’ve definitely made some improvements.“Even though we lost against the Rebels on the weekend we’ve analysed the game and it’s some of the best stuff we’ve done all year. There are still areas we need to work on definitely but we’ve just got to get a better performance through the full 80 minutes.”Super Rugby Round 14Western Force v LionsSaturday, 26 May 2012 at nib Stadium, PerthKick-off: 12:40 [GMT] Super 50: Nick Cummins will celebrate his 50th cap by leading out the team (Getty Images)

Turner, center, draws attention to the 1921 Tulsa massacre every week in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Courtesy photo[Religion News Service] On the first Wednesday in May, as the centennial of the Tulsa massacre approached, the Rev. Robert R.A. Turner stood outside Tulsa City Hall with his megaphone, as he does every week.“Tulsa, you will reap what you sow and that which you have done unto the least of these my children, Jesus said, you have done also unto me,” said Turner, 38, the pastor of Historic Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church, captured on a video posted on Facebook.“We come here to say, for your own benefit, you ought to do reparations not tomorrow, not even next week, not next month, not next year, but we demand reparations now!”Turner’s Vernon AME is one of the plaintiffs in a suit filed in September that calls for the city of Tulsa and other defendants to pay reparations to relatives of victims and survivors of the May 31, 1921, massacre that destroyed a part of town known as “Black Wall Street.”Beginning with false rumors spread though the Oklahoma city that a young Black man had assaulted a white female elevator operator, within about 16 hours, a white mob killed an estimated 300 Black people and destroyed thousands of homes, businesses and churches.As Tulsa pauses to mark the somber centenary in its Greenwood district, where Black Wall Street was located, Turner and other Black people of faith are among those saying the time has come to repay as well as to remember.

Photo courtesy of Tulsa2021.orgIn 2001, the Oklahoma Commission to Study the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 called for reparations for the massacre, including payment to survivors and descendants, a scholarship fund, establishment of an economic development zone in the historic area and a memorial for reburial of remains of victims found in unmarked graves.“Perhaps this report, and subsequent humanitarian recovery events by the governments and the good people of the state will extract us from the guilt and confirm the commandment of a good and just God — leaving the deadly deeds of 1921 buried in the call for redemption, historical correctness, and repair,” wrote then-state Rep. Don Ross in the prologue of the report.Turner, who arrived in the city in 2017 to lead his church, agrees with all of the commission’s recommendations and hopes for a full criminal investigation. His petition for reparations has been signed by more than 26,000 people.“This is about sin and an abominable sin — racism,” said the minister, who calls the massacre a “genocide of people simply because of the color of their skin.”Gregory Thompson, co-author of a new book, “Reparations: A Christian Call for Repentance and Repair,” said the Tulsans’ demands show how the movement for reparations has extended beyond atonement for the United States’ involvement in slavery to repairing societal ills, and that not just the federal government but local and regional officials are being called to account.

Courtesy images“It’s not to say that I don’t think the federal government should be involved — I do,” said Thompson, a white scholar who directs Voices Underground, a team of researchers and community members focused on the history of the Underground Railroad in the Philadelphia area. “But I think community-based reparations allow African American leaders a lot more agency in this conversation than if it’s located at the federal government, which is not equitably representative of African Americans.”Regional reparations initiatives have become more common of late. Since the 1990s, descendants of survivors of the 1923 massacre in the majority-Black enclave of Rosewood, Florida, have received state scholarships.In March, the Evanston City Council in Illinois began approving reparations that provide mortgage and other housing assistance to local Black residents to make amends for racially discriminatory housing practices. In April, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam signed a bill mandating that five of the state’s older public universities pay for scholarships or community redevelopment programs, starting in 2022, to benefit descendants of enslaved workers who built them.Vernon AME is one of 23 churches in Greenwood that predate the massacre, of which 13 survived, according to a tally by Faith Still Standing, an ecumenical group of congregations that have rebuilt in the area or beyond it.

Robert R.A. Turner is the pastor of Historic Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Courtesy photoThe lawsuit argues that the tragedy is a continuing “public nuisance” that Tulsa should remedy through monetary means.Among the suit’s petitions to the Tulsa County District Court are payments to descendants of those who were killed, injured or displaced by the massacre; development of educational and mental health programs for people in Greenwood and North Tulsa; and a scholarship program for “Massacre descendants” for post-secondary education in Oklahoma.The suit states that Vernon AME Church, “founded in 1905, is the only standing Black-owned structure from the Historic Black Wall Street era and the only edifice that remains from the Massacre. Vernon’s sanctuary burned in the Massacre. The basement was the only part of the red brick building that remained.”The church joins other plaintiffs in charging that they never received resources to recover from the trauma and damage of the massacre.The city, responding in court documents to the suit, questioned the framing of its claims and the idea that the city’s current problems can be attributed to 100-year-old wrongs.“At its base level, Plaintiffs are attempting to seek reparations for the events of June 1921 while working around the inherent statute of limitations problems that have thwarted other lawsuits bringing similar claims,” the city argued.It added that the suit’s claims of continuing racial inequalities are “nebulous” and said “community wide issues such as racial disparity are caused by a number of factors and cannot be traced to specific actions or omissions to act of or by the City, nor is it a nuisance that can be simply abated by the City.” Rector Hopkinsville, KY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH The Rev.

Its original building was still new when it was destroyed in the massacre.“When we think of Black Wall Street, it was a tremendously a thriving area of all-Black businesses,” said Givens. “So a lot of the churches were just now getting started in that area” when they were burned down.“Nothing was ever done for them or to help them in that situation,” said Christ Temple’s trustee board chairperson, Annette Gathron, of the people who lost homes, businesses and belongings along with their churches.Some of those whose families survived the massacre have become key figures in the city’s Black history. The late John Hope Franklin, the famed historian, was a member of Christ Temple, and his father, attorney B.C. Franklin, helped pay off the church’s mortgage on the brick building it constructed after the massacre.Gathron said she hopes to attend some of the worship services marking the centennial.A “Unity Day Worship Guide” for congregations to use on the last Sunday in May is included in an online list of options for commemorative activities.Gathron said she also intends to keep younger members of her family aware of the history of the city where she has lived for more than 60 years.“I think that it’s good that we are remembering and I plan to take my great-grands to some of this so they can understand the struggles that we have had,” she said.She traditionally takes nieces and nephews visiting from across the country on a walking tour through historic Greenwood, including a stop at Vernon AME.“I think it’s important for them to know that they can achieve because this, at one time, was a very thriving community.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Shreveport, LA Featured Jobs & Calls By Adelle M.

It will be available to volunteers leaving the UK between April this year and March 2011 for periods of volunteering of between seven and 24 months.There will be no cost to the employer or individual and the scheme is open to any member of a UK public sector pension scheme, including NHS workers, teachers, civil servants, the armed services, fire fighters, local government services, the judiciary and parliamentarians.www.dfid.gov.uk
It’s summer vacation time for 15% ethanol blends but not by choice. “The Environmental Protection Agency’s outdated interpretation of Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) regulations is preventing the sale of E15 in most of the country during the busy summer driving season, adding billions to travelers’ fuel costs,” said American Coalition for Ethanol senior vice president Ron Lamberty. By unnecessarily limiting the sale of E15 to only flex-fuel vehicle (FFV) owners from June 1 to September 15 in areas where most gasoline is used, Lamberty says EPA is effectively requiring drivers to purchase lower octane fuel for 5 to 40 cents. Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Jun 8, 2014 Home Energy Summer Means No E15 Previous articleOil Futures End Higher Friday, but Lower for the WeekNext articleHow Will We Feed Ourselves in the Future? Gary Truitt SHARE Summer Means No E15 Iowa leads the nation with 20 registered E15 stations and Iowa Renewable Fuels AssociationManaging Director Lucy Norton says they have to shut down the pumps in the summertime. “If oil refiners chose to ship gasoline with the proper vapor pressure into our state, Iowa motorists could have expanded access to cleaner-burning, lower-cost E15 year-round, instead of it being temporarily restricted to only flex-fuel vehicles during the summer,” said Norton. The Iowa legislature passed legislation to help ease costs Iowa retailers may incur when obtaining gasoline suitable for blending with 15 percent ethanol during the summer months. Under the legislation, Iowa’s E15 retailer tax credit to 10 cents from June 1 to September 15, up from the three cents it is the rest of the year.“Ironically, E15 has a lower RVP than the fuel 95% of drivers are using, so EPA’s unwillingness to change a 25 year-old regulation effectively mandates higher evaporative emissions and higher prices during the busiest driving season of the year,” said Lamberty.

This technology has been highly anticipated by farmers and is now available in the United States and Canada in time for the 2016 season. “We are pleased to bring Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans to the market,” said Brett Begemann, Monsanto President and Chief Operating Officer. “After a decade of development, the new and elite germplasm in Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans can provide growers with outstanding performance in their efforts to produce the best crop possible.”Monsanto’s Asgrow®, Channel® and regional brands, along with Corn States licensees, expect to introduce more than 70 soybean products across eight maturity groups with agronomic traits including resistance to nematodes and phytophthora root rot. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are broadly licensed to more than 100 seed brands.Although Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are tolerant to both glyphosate and dicamba herbicides, the use of dicamba herbicide over the top of Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans remains in late stage of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) review and is not currently approved by the EPA. Once approved, the Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System – including Bollgard II® XtendFlex® cotton – will offer growers a vital tool for managing tough-to-control and glyphosate-resistant weeds.Miriam Paris, U.S. Soybean Marketing Manager, says demand for Roundup Ready 2 Xtend™ soybeans has been strong. “To date, we’ve had significant pre-orders from farmers and are excited to move forward with commercialization,” she said. “Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans are built on the same high-yielding germplasm as Genuity® Roundup Ready 2 Yield® soybeans, which continue to deliver a greater than four bushel per acre advantage as compared to the original Roundup Ready® soybeans. Pending dicamba approval, growers will continue to maximize their yield opportunity through the weed management recommendations and incentives provided by Roundup Ready PLUS® Crop Management Solutions.”More information about Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and the Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System can be found at RoundupReadyPLUS.com/XtendCropSystem.
