Sports betting bill has support in US capital

first_img Sports betting bill has support in US capital 19th September 2018 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Regions: US Washington DC Washington, DC council member Jack Evans has urged lawmakers in the US capital to press ahead with introducing regulated sports betting as soon as possible – or miss out on the financial benefits.Evans proposed a bill yesterday (Tuesday) that would allow sports wagering in the District of Columbia while pledging to generate much-needed funds for public childcare, arts and humanities programmes.“We can be first and get a lot of money or 51st and not get any,” Evans said before yesterday’s council meeting.He later added: “Today, we take the first steps towards capturing this exciting new stream of revenue, instead of watching District resident dollars fill the coffers of other jurisdictions.“The District of Columbia will be the leader in a fast-growing industry. The city should take advantage of our ability to act before the Maryland or Virginia legislatures to create a thriving sports betting market, which will attract consumers to the District and generate revenue for District residents.”The nearest location for sports betting is currently Hollywood Casino in West Virginia, about 65 miles from Washington, DC.Crucially, though, Evans’ bill appears to have sufficient support from other council members, as well as Mayor Muriel Bowser, who is helping to draft the legislation along with council chairman Phil Mendelson.Mendelson told the Washington Post he had agreed to help the bill pass, because he believes it is in the best interests of the city, even though he dislikes gambling.Bowser’s chief of staff, John Falcicchio, added to the newspaper: “The Mayor supports council member Evans’ efforts to make sports betting a viable revenue source for our growing needs.“Sports betting can help us fund critical programmes, create jobs for District residents and allow visitors and commuters to further participate in our economy.”Under Evans’ proposals, a 10% tax on operators’ gross gaming revenues would be applied, in addition to a $50,000 fee for a five-year licence.Half of the money raised would be put towards early-childhood care initiatives under the newly-introduced Birth-to-Three for All DC Act, with the remainder dedicated to the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.Under Evans’ bill, athletes, coaches and referees would be prohibited from placing bets, while a maximum wager limit would be set.The District’s chief financial officer, who already oversees the DC Lottery, would act as the regulator.Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Wizards NBA basketball franchise and the Washington Capitals NHL ice hockey team, has already said that regulated sports betting would open up a “new frontier” for professional sports outfits.

the knockout stages and it’s easy to see why it will be one of the biggest global sporting events of the year.So what could prove to be the decisive factor in Manchester?Ending the World Cup woePakistan have the better of the overall head-to-head record – winning 73 of the 131 ODIs contested between the sides, to India’s 54 – but at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, it’s a different story entirely.India have come out on top in all six meetings at the global showpiece, starting with a 43-run triumph back in 1992 and most recently securing a 76-run victory in 2015.It’s quite a statistical hoodoo for Pakistan to overcome but they can take heart from the last game the teams played in England – Fakhar Zaman’s 114 and Mohammad Amir’s 3/16 helping them to a huge 180-run win in the ICC Champions Trophy final at the Oval almost two years ago to the day.Amir’s resurgenceSpeaking of Mohammad Amir, he wasn’t in Pakistan’s initial 15-man World Cup squad but once injuries gave him an opportunity at the tournament, the left-arm seamer has seized it in style.Three wickets against West Indies, two against England and brilliant figures of 5/30 against Australia have put him among the tournament’s leading wicket-takers.The 27-year-old’s battle against the Indian top order could prove decisive and Amir will be particularly encouraged by his recent record against opener Rohit Sharma – trapping him LBW with his third ball in that 2017 Champions Trophy final, having dismissed him in the same manner with his second ball in the Asia Cup a year prior.Amir has proven himself a bowler for the big occasion and occasions don’t come much bigger than this.Kohli’s classWith KL Rahul expected to move up from No.4 open the batting for India in the absence of the injured Shikhar Dhawan, more pressure could fall on the shoulders of Virat Kohli at three.Fortunately, the Indian skipper seems impervious and has carried the team on his back plenty of times during his 11-year international career.Kohli demonstrated his form with a classy knock of 82 against Australia and has a healthy average of 45.90, with two tons and a half-century, in his 12 ODIs against Pakistan.The number one batsman in the ODI rankings also sports a ridiculous 70.33 average over the past four years in the format – racking up 5,697 runs in that time – so limiting the damage he can cause will be a vital, if unenviable, task for Mickey Arthur’s men.Babar looking to buildHe’s still only 24 years old but Pakistan hope that in the long-term, Babar Azam can be their answer to Kohli.That’s a huge ask for any young player but the classy right-hander is certainly on the right track and is already ranked as the number one batsman in international T20 cricket.Heading into this World Cup, Babar had played 64 ODIs in which he had made 2,739 runs at 51.67 (including nine hundreds and 12 fifties), with a strike rate of 85.96.Those are numbers that compare favourably to Kohli at that stage of his career – after 64 ODIs, the Indian superstar had accumulated 2,347 runs at 43.49 (including six hundreds and 16 fifties), with a strike rate of 82.14.It’s what Kohli did next and how his game developed that puts him among the all-time greats but Babar, who is yet to clear 50 in four matches against India, could certainly take another step down that path by leading Pakistan to victory on Sunday.Bumrah bringing his bestAs the number one bowler in the ICC ODI rankings, Jasprit Bumrah provides India with another consistently potent weapon with the ball, although he hasn’t quite hit the heights in his four one-dayers against Pakistan.Bumrah has taken just four wickets in those matches and the 0/68 from the Champions Trophy final in 2017 remain his worst figures in ODI cricket to date.An average of 35.75 against Pakistan isn’t in the same league as his stellar mark of 21.98 during his ODI career as a whole but the 25-year-old has already demonstrated his quality during this World Cup with a scintillating spell in India’s opener against South Africa that caused fits for the Proteas top order.Heading into the World Cup, nobody in world cricket had taken more wickets at the death than Bumrah’s 44 since his ODI debut against Australia in January 2016, so if the game does go down to the wire – India can boast just the man for the job.Also Read: ICC World Cup 2019: Taking

The FTSE 100 crash has been scary. There is so much uncertainty because of the Covid-19 lockdown and its social and economic impact. That is added to the uncertainty that we have already lived with, of Brexit negotiations and other geopolitical tensions.But there is an upside to the crash at least. If you have some cash set aside, say £10,000 or so, and invest like Warren Buffett, you could increase your chances of retiring early.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…Best long-term investments for beginnersI have just listened to Buffett’s interview about the power of indexing. Investing $114 into the S&P 500 Index in 1942 – just after Pearl Harbour – would have left an investor with $400,000 by 2019. Of course, back in 1942, $114 was worth much more than it is today. The point is that the return of the S&P 500 Index averaged 10% per year.And how about FTSE 100? Well, as my colleagues point out, the annual return of the index is 6% to 8% per year on average. Reinvesting the dividends would also do a good job for you, especially during bear markets. FTSE 100 recoveryThe problem is that most people start panicking when they see their portfolios crashing. So, instead of adding to their holdings, they keep selling. I would not do this, especially in the case of an index fund. The Footsie has a great recovery history. It recovered after the Great Recession of 2008–09. And it is highly likely it will do the same now after the lockdown.The same is also true for its core constituents. Well established, profitable companies with investment-grade credit ratings have the potential to make you a fortune.You don’t have to have a lot of cash at your disposal to start investing now. And you don’t need to invest all your cash at once. You can just buy a bit of a stock index and some of the best shares with a part of that money. Then, you could reinvest the dividends and add to your positions during corrections or at fixed intervals, say, once per month.    Best stocks to retire earlyThe most important question is which stocks to pick. Obviously, “good” stock picks tend to outperform the entire FTSE 100. This is because an index also includes loss-making and risky companies. Nowadays, risky companies include Carnival Corporation and InterContinental Hotels Group. They currently drag the index down. But will it always be so? If these companies don’t go bankrupt before the end of the lockdown, they could turn out to be an excellent bet for brave long-term investors. Unfortunately, no one knows if that will be the case.However, for other stock pickers it might be wise to avoid such companies and stockpile the “good” ones. What does it mean? Well, such companies are currently profitable. They also pay dividends and have high credit ratings. Some investors like to buy momentum stocks like Ocado. This means that they are generating high returns and will continue to do so for a few months.I prefer to invest for the long run in companies with a long history. I like companies like Legal & General, Aviva, and Barclays. They belong to the financial sector, which tends to struggle during recessions. But when the dust settles, they will flourish. These are just some of my suggestions, but there are many more companies that can turn £10,000 into a fortune and allow investors to retire early.

I think now is a great time to buy UK shares. Swathes of quality British stocks have failed to recover in price following the 2020 stock market crash. And this provides a chance for long-term investors like me to nip in and grab a bargain or two. There are plenty of penny stocks alone that are on my radar right now. Shares like these trade for less than a pound a pop.Share pickers need to be careful before splashing the cash of course. Many UK shares remain financially fragile following the Covid-19 outbreak of last year. But there are countless stocks that are in good health and which I think could soar in value when economic conditions eventually rebound.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…Here are four penny stocks I’d buy today for a new bull market.#1: Catch of the day?There are several reasons why I think retailer Angling Direct’s share price could soar over the medium term. Consumer spending always recovers robustly when the broader economy picks up. It is also rapidly expanding its store network and investing shedloads in its online proposition both at home and abroad. Fishing is the most popular participation sport in the UK too. That said, bear in mind recent data that shows angling participation steadily falling prior to Covid-19 lockdowns.#2: Full steam aheadI expect sales of Hornby’s models and collectibles to improve too as consumer spending power takes off in the next bull market. It’s true that competition in the realms of railway sets, slot car racing and model kits is fierce and Hornby has seen several years of losses. But the UK share’s brands like Airfix, Scalextric and those eponymous locomotive ranges command fierce loyalty among many hobbyists, giving it a distinct competitive advantage. I’m also encouraged by the company’s drive to boost investment in digital marketing.#3: Making money in the digital realmBidstack is another penny stock whose profits I think could rise in 2021 and beyond. It’s not just because advertising and marketing budgets tend to rise strongly during the early stages of the economic cycle. It’s because this share — which builds adverts into interactive technology — should benefit from the rocketing popularity of video games. That said, threats to its relationships with game developers and publishers from other technology providers could derail its bright long-term outlook.#4: Another top penny stock for gamersRising retail spending during economic recoveries also makes Gaming Realms an attractive penny stock in my book. This UK share builds games for mobiles, tablets and PCs and licences them to gambling operators. I’m also backing this tech share to thrive as the online gambling industry goes from strength to strength and its recent US expansion likely pays off. It’s been suggested that the global gambling market could rise at an annualised rate of 7% through to 2025. That said, the mobile gaming market is fiercely competitive and profits could suffer if players flock to other games. 4 top penny stocks I’d buy for the new bull marketcenter_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Congolese political reporter “should not be in prison”

first_imgNews News to go further Credit photo: Facebook Peter Tiani Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedFreedom of expression It’s been almost a month since Peter Tiani, producer of a video news magazine called Le Vrai Journal was arrested on a criminal defamation charge in the Kinshasa’s Makala prison, for reporting that a large sum of money was stolen from the home of Bruno Tshibala, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s prime minister, an alleged theft that was originally published in an article for the ScoopRDC.net website on 27 October. Tiani is facing a possible one-year jail sentence. He is due to appear at a hearing today at which prosecutors will simply ask the court to extend his pre-trial detention for another 30 days. The substance of the case against him will not be considered. At no point have prosecutors presented grounds for holding him pending trial. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate release of Peter Tiani, arrested over a defamation case on November 7th 2018 after he relayed that a large sum of money was stolen from the home of Bruno Tshibala, the Democratic Republic of Congo’s prime minister.

Tiani’s political reporting has a sizeable audience. His Twitter account has 5,000 followers and his YouTube channel has more than 8,000 subscribers. In a show of support on 23 November, fellow journalists demonstrated outside the prime minister’s office and then outside his home. Receive email alerts A few days before his arrest, Tiani reported on Twitter that he was being threatened in connection with his coverage of the prime minister. In December 2017, he posted a video report on YouTube called “Duty to remember” that was a compilation of comments critical of President Joseph Kabila that Tshibala had made when still one of Kabila’s opponents.center_img “This journalist should not be in prison,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “There is no need to wait before examining the substance of the defamation charges brought against him and there are certainly no grounds for keeping him in preventive detention.” Froger added: “Many other media outlets carried the same story but Peter Tiani is the only journalist to have been arrested. With less than three weeks to go until the presidential election, his detention has all the hallmarks of a personal reprisal or an attempt to silence a reporter who is popular and, at the same time, critical of the government.” Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian RSF_en News Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists ImprisonedFreedom of expression News Organisation Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma February 18, 2021 Find out more December 4, 2018 Congolese political reporter “should not be in prison” Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congolast_img read more
