This fee was set at a flat fee of $250,000, but could now be changed to $50,000 for investigating each principal in the business.This fee could then be increased if the costs of the regulatory investigation into whether an operator is suitable for a license exceed the initial application fee.Read the full story on iGB North America.

first_imgDugher also noted that the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport had argued casinos should be exempt from the restrictions, with the facilities having put in place a host of measures to ensure the safety of staff and customers prior to reopening on 15 August. “His own public health officials saw for themselves the sophisticated anti-Covid measures which casinos have put in place – and then gave them the go-ahead to re-open just last month because they are Covid-safe,” Dugher said. 22nd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Among the new restrictions is a 10pm daily curfew for all leisure facilities, including casinos, from 24 September. Venues that fail to comply face financial penalties and potentially being shut down. The measures also require all retail staff to wear face coverings when working, while bars and restaurants will be limited to table service only. “It is now absolutely vital that the government throws the industry a lifeline by putting in place an urgent economic package to alleviate the damage that this decision will cause.” The BHA had already warned the UK government that the industry could lose as much as £300m in revenue this year due to Covid-19. Regions: UK & Ireland UK industry standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has called on the government to establish an “urgent economic package” to support the casino sector after warning its latest novel coronavirus (Covid19) measures could lead to 50% of workers losing their jobs. Dugher’s comments come after the BGC opposed similar curfew plans in both the north-east and London, before it was confirmed as a nationwide initiative. The BGC had written to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden warning it could lead to thousands of job losses if rolled out across the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson today (22 September) set out a series of measures to slow further spread of Covid-19, at a time when experts are warning that the country is facing a second wave of the virus. “Without immediate and substantial financial help from the government, perfectly viable casinos – which between them paid £1.3bn in tax to the Treasury in the last three years – will simply go to the wall. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “The 10pm curfew will slash casino incomes by up to 75% and likely lead to half their workforce – some 7,000 people – being made redundant,” Dugher said.center_img BGC: New Covid-19 restrictions “death knell” for casinos Dugher recommended that the government consider extending its Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, which is due to conclude on 31 October. If this were not possible, Dugher said he saw merit in the Labour Party’s ‘High Street Fightback Fund’, which would see £1.70bn (€1.84bn/$2.15bn) given to businesses affected by the curfew. Johnson said that while the new restrictions only cover England, the devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will also set out similar requirements. “How does the Prime Minister hope to power an economic recovery if he’s sat back and allowed whole industries to go to the wall?” However, BGC chief executive Michael Dugher (pictured) said the Prime Minister may have “signalled the death knell for the casino industry”, criticising the government for including casinos – which do up to 70% of their trade after 10pm – in the list of businesses impacted by the curfew. The Prime Minister also warned that the measures could be in place for up to six months, while restrictions could be tightened if the initial changes to regulations do not slow the increase in positive Covid-19 cases. The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) also warned that the racing industry faces a “severe threat” as a result of the measures, which will see the return of spectators to events was delayed for the foreseeable future. Casinos in London had sought to avoid any curfew by offering a compromise to the government, whereby it would close all of its bars by 10pm, but the main casino could remain open. However, with today’s, this proposal has seemingly failed.

Please enter your email address here InspirationBy Charles Towne A pair of gopher tortoises was performing the turtle dance in my backyard.  The mating dance of the gopher tortoise is really quite elaborate.  Head bobs and weaves, along with tender love nips, it isn’t really a dance, perhaps a clog, but not a dance.  The male tortoise bobs his head up and down quite rapidly as though nodding assent to some question only he understands, and then, almost as quickly, he shakes his head back and forth as though denying his intent.  It is obvious that he is not being completely honest because of the goofy grin on his face.  Once he has the attention of the lovely young lady tortoise she approaches him and says something like, “Hello BIG BOY.  Where have you been all my life?”    To which he thinks, “whoa boy, she likes me, oh goody, goody, goody!”  And he bobs his head even faster, pausing now and then to give her some playful little love nips on her front legs.  What is the old saying about hope springing eternal?  The only thing that I have learned about this elaborate head bobbing ritual is that persistence pays off.  Sometimes.  Maybe.   I tried the head bobbing thing with my wife and she went into the bedroom and locked the door, after which she shouted that if I didn’t go away she was going to call the police.  It was obvious that what works for gopher tortoises was not going to work for me.  Oh well, perhaps I need to perfect my head bobbing technique, and just maybe throwing in a few love nips wouldn’t hurt, you think, maybe?An Outdoorsman’s Prayer Dear God, thank you for being so very patient with me, and thanks for giving me a little more good sense than a gopher tortoise, sometimes, maybe.  Thank you for enabling me to not take life so seriously, and for being able to laugh at my own goof ups, and foibles.  In Jesus wonderful and Holy name, Amen Live fully,Love openly,And make a difference, todayCharles Towne is a longtime Apopka resident, member of Inspire Church, published author and a lifelong outdoorsman.center_img Those are sea turtles in the photo above, if those turtles above, were gophers dancing in the sea, it isn’t dancing or flirting, it is drowning!

So, as Thomas-Garriott says, you can decide to play defense by spraying to keep disease in the lower canopy from moving up.“We don’t want to let them creep up to the ear leaf and beyond, those leaves that are responsible for photosynthesis and kind of the energy factory for the plant and developing that grain,” she explained. “We want to keep those healthy and really the only way to do that is spray them before they get there. So, we want to keep that disease confined and certainly that tasseling to early brown silk application will help us do that.”You might also go on offense to take what you think is a great crop out to its fullest potential yield.“We want to protect that and there is certainly a plant health benefit to most of the fungicides we spray,” Thomas-Garriott told HAT. “The strobilurin family, which is what the large majority of people use, the large majority of products going on contains a strobi. We can really capitalize on extending the life of that factory later in the season keeping those leaves greener just a little bit longer and letting that plant life out its full healthy life cycle. The longer we stretch grain fill the more our test weight increases, the more our grain depth increases.”She says they like that approach with a potentially great crop, even when disease incidence is low and not of great concern.

Relying on Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), he contended that he was victim of one Muthukumar’s (co-accused) plot. The High Court had refused to discharge the accused from the case and thus he approached the Apex Court in appeal.Referring to this report, the bench, also, comprising Justices Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee, observed:A reading of this Report shows that, at the highest, the appellant may be negligent without any criminal culpability. In fact, the positive finding of the CVC that the appellant appears to be a victim of Muthukumar’s plot is of some importance.The Court, referring to P.S. Rajya vs. State of Bihar, (1996) 9 SCC 1, further observed.A number of judgments have held that the standard of proof in a departmental proceeding, being based on preponderance of probability is somewhat lower than the standard of proof in a criminal proceeding where the case has to be proved beyond reasonable doubt.Referring to Radheshyam Kejriwal vs. State of West Bengal and Another, (2011) 3 SCC 581, the bench had summarized the principles as follows:Adjudication proceedings and criminal prosecution can be launched simultaneously;Decision in adjudication proceedings is not necessary before initiating criminal prosecution;Adjudication proceedings and criminal proceedings are independent in nature to each other; The finding against the person facing prosecution in the adjudication proceedings is not binding on the proceeding for criminal prosecution; Adjudication proceedings by the Enforcement Directorate is not prosecution by a competent court of law to attract the provisions of Article 20(2) of the Constitution or Section 300 of the Code of Criminal Procedure; The finding in the adjudication proceedings in favour of the person facing trial for identical violation will depend upon the nature of finding. If the exoneration in adjudication proceedings is on technical ground and not on merit, prosecution may continue; andIn case of exoneration, however, on merits where the allegation is found to be not sustainable at all and the person held innocent, criminal prosecution on the same set of facts and circumstances cannot be allowed to continue, the underlying principle being the higher standard of proof in criminal cases.”Taking note of point (7), the bench discharged the accused and observed:From our point of view, para 38(vii) is important and if the High Court had bothered to apply this parameter, then on a reading of the CVC report on the same facts, the appellant should have been exonerated.. Applying the aforesaid judgments to the facts of this case, it is clear that in view of the detailed CVC order dated 22.12.2011, the chances of conviction in a criminal trial involving the same facts appear to be bleak.Case name: ASHOO SURENDRANATH TEWARI vs.DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE, EOW, CBICase no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 575 OF 2020 Coram: Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha, Indira BanerjeeCounsel: Advocate Subhash Jha and ASG Vikramjit BanerjeeClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailNashville Police(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — A 23-year-old man is one of four people being sought for questioning by police in the fatal stabbings at a Nashville bar of two men, including the brother of San Francisco 49ers’ backup quarterback C.J. Beathard, authorities said.Nashville police say they are eager to talk to Michael D. Mosley about the violent confrontation early Saturday at The Dogwood bar that claimed the lives of Beathard’s 22-year-old brother, Clayton Beathard, and Paul Trapeni III, 21, a student at Rhodes College in Memphis.Investigators are asking for the public’s help in locating Mosley, who is “strongly believed to have definitive information about the murders,” police officials said in a statement.Mosely is one of four people who were at the bar during the fatal fight that police are seeking to question. He is the only one police have identified.“Mosley has been identified as being present both inside and outside of The Dogwood bar, including when the fight occurred,” according to the police statement.Clayton Beathard and Trapeni were stabbed around 3 a.m. on Saturday during a fight that occurred outside the bar when they saw a woman being subjected to unwanted advances from a man and attempted to intervene, police said.Both victims were rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where they died. A third man was also stabbed in the confrontation, but survived, police said.No arrests have been made in the slayings.“Clay was an amazing, big and soft-hearted human being with an undeniable love for the Lord,” Clayton Bethard’s parents, country music songwriter Casey Beathard and Susan Beathard, said in a statement to The Tennessean.Clayton Beathard was a junior at New York’s Long Island University, where he was the starting quarterback this past season on the school’s football team.“He had his family’s, friends’ and teammates’ backs even to a fault,” the parents said. “I wish he would have been more inclined to take the high road but he hated ‘wrong.’”Following the 49ers thrilling last-minute victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, head coach Kyle Shanahan told his players that C.J. Beathard had given him a message to relay to them.“He could barely talk, but he said to me, last thing he said as he walked out the door is, ‘You guys go out and win this game,’” Shanahan said. “This game doesn’t mean anything compared to his brother, but you guys know C.J.”The 49ers’ organization released a statement saying they were “shocked and deeply saddened” by Clayton Beathard’s death.“We extend our heartfelt sympathies to C.J. and the entire Beathard family as they cope with the unthinkable loss of a loved one,” the team said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgFormer Housing Secretary and Chancellor, Sajid Javid (pictured) has called on the competition authorities to investigate the ‘increasing concentration’ of volume house building within the hands of a relatively few house builders.Javid, who was housing secretary from 2016 to 2018, said over the weekend that Britain’s inability to build enough homes was in part down to the ‘increasingly concentrated’ housebuilding industry and said the Competition and Markets Authority.Directors at firms such as Barratt Homes, Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey have reason to be concerned about Javid’s comments.It was revealed on Saturday that Javid, who quit as Chancellor in February 2020 following a row with Dominic Cummings over who controlled his advisors, is being readied for a return to Cabinet most likely as the new Business Secretary.ReshuffleBoris Johnson is expected to announce a reshuffle this week or next with four of the more gaffe-prone Ministers of state under the spotlight, including housing secretary Robert Jenrick.Javid said over the weekend that: “It may be time for the [Competition and Markets Authority] to look more closely at an industry that has become increasingly concentrated over recent years, dominated by a few large house builders.”His comments to The Telegraph have been made to coincide with the publication of a new edition of Home Truths by one of the paper’s economic columnists Liam Halligan, a critical look at the housing market’s failings.In a foreword to the new edition, Javid says: “In 2016 I said that ‘big developers have a stranglehold on supply’. Since then, competition has increased to some degree [but] we are, sadly, no longer a nation of homeowners.”liam halligan house-builders Sajid Javid January 18, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentAndrew Stanton, CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist CEO Proptech-PR Real Estate Influencer & Journalist 18th January 2021 at 12:17 amJenrick is likely to be replaced either in the upcoming re-shuffle or the next, and I do not think he will like where he is going.
