Parx Casino targets sports licence in Pennsylvania

first_imgCasino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course has also applied 28th August 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US Connecticut Pennsylvania Parx Casino targets sports licence in Pennsylvania Parx Casino has submitted a formal application for a licence to offer legal sports betting in Pennsylvania, having already been successful in a bid to launch online gambling in the state. Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, the owner of Parx, put forward the latest application on behalf of the property, which now joins the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in applying for a licence. In addition to Parx, Greenwood is seeking permission from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to offer legal sports wagering at its South Philadelphia Turf Club off-track betting facility. Documents seen by Legal Sports Report suggest that should Greenwood succeed in its application, Parx could be offering sports betting services before the end of the year. The PGCB has already said that despite various other states having introduced regulated sports betting in recent weeks, Pennsylvania is unlikely to do so prior to the start of the NFL American football season in September. Greenwood would not obtain a licence until September at the earliest, when the PGCB will next meet to discuss all new applications. Operators that do secure a licence face a combined 36% tax rate, comprising a 34% state tax and 2% local tax. Parx has already been successful in obtaining an online gaming licence in the state, having put forward a joint application with GAN. Meanwhile, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has suspended talks with two Native American tribes over sports betting regulation, with the state set to miss out on legalisation this year. Malloy is keen to push ahead with regulation and said that the two tribes were “within days” of an agreement to amend their gaming compact. However, according to the Connecticut Mirror, Malloy said that disagreements among legislators will delay the process until the next scheduled legislative session in January. “I don’t think circumstances have changed dramatically, except that the Republicans in the legislature have indicated they don’t want come to come into session on this topic,” Malloy said. “Unless that changes or unless the Democrats say they want to come in, then there wouldn’t be a session. There would be no reason to continue negotiations.”Image: VegasCasinoKid Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

Albanian gambling clampdown intensifies

first_img Albanian gambling clampdown intensifies Regions: Europe Baltics Albania Albania’s hostile environment for gambling is set to intensify after the country’s Prime Minister, Edi Rama, said that betting shops and casinos would not be allowed to operate in residential areas from the start of next year.Rama, who has previously supported the introduction of regulations clamping down on online gambling, said that all premises where bets can be placed should relocate to the outskirts of cities from residential areas by December 31, according to the Transitions Online news website.The order gives operators less than three months to find new bases, with many expected to struggle to find appropriate locations in such a short time period.Additionally, the Prime Minister (pictured) warned media outlets that if they fail to stop showing adverts of unregulated gambling services, they would be “closed by force”.Rama has led a campaign against gambling in Albania since his socialist party swept to power five years ago in a landslide election victory. Within five months of his triumph, some 1,300 betting premises had undergone inspections, with many being closed down due to allegations of financial mismanagement.In his latest announcement, Rama boasted that tax revenue had increased from €32m (£28m/$37m) to €47m since he came to power, even though the number of casinos in the country had halved from 40 to 20.There had been hopes of a timely boost for operators in Albania when, in July, the government submitted plans to reduce the tax rate from 15% of gross gaming revenue to 15% of gross earnings. However, President Ilir Meta vetoed the proposal, sending it back to parliament for further consideration.“The implementation of the legal changes would only benefit gambling businesses at a time when the expected effects on the state budget or household economy are negative,” Meta said at the time, according to the Tirana Times newspaper.“The gambling business model does not produce added value for society. On the contrary, the expansion of this industry brings potential risk of making Albanian households poorer whilst causing social upheaval.”Albanians reportedly spent €132m on gambling in 2017 – a 10% year-on-year increase – even though, with a population of under three million, Albania’s GDP of $12.7bn places it as one of the poorest countries in Europe.However, a report by the national audit committee said that the state had failed to collect about €395m in fines levied on operators who had failed to fulfil certain regulations between 2014 and 2016.

Villa K sits on its own park on a hillside for an art collector. The entrance area is a piazzetta, open to the stone path High-tech smart home and fine natural materials in combination with exposed concrete travertine and wood. The builders initially didn’t want exposed concrete, but over time they became big self-service fans, and they planned everything in detail together with the architect. Concerning concrete: a consequent double-shell construction outside and inside exposed concrete, self-service walls with core insulation, surfaces ground inside, all self-service components of the highest quality, no visible formwork anchor holes, all closed in self service.Save this picture!© Daniel HawelkaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Daniel HawelkaAll windows are flush on the room side and the window frames are always in Concrete hides, which is structurally quite complicated in detail. Concrete core activation. The main house and the annex have no parapet and no window sills – sheet metal is not visible anywhere, only concrete surfaces and edges – one dared and it works. The goal is a sustainability of the execution in materials and in detail, but also a sustainable architecture that will not appear old-fashioned in 20 or 50 years. In the 6 m high room there is space for the small but very nice picture collection that the family owns. The living area opens with large-format sliding doors – minimal windows – to the covered terrace, which can be closed on all sides by screens, and forms a new space as a transition to the garden. Distant views of the landscape, transitions from interior to exterior, purism of detailing and staging of the art objects are central themes in this representative house.

Export Numbers Show Dramatic Increase In Corn

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 11, 2016 Export Numbers Show Dramatic Increase In Corn U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) export data for the month of September, the first in the 2016/2017 marketing year, showed a dramatic increase in exports of feed grains in all forms, a bright spot in the overall challenging farm economy.Total feed grains in all forms – which includes corn, sorghum, barley, meats, ethanol and distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) – in September were up nearly 34 percent from September 2015.With 10.7 million metric tons (421 million bushels) of feed grains in one form or another exported, the month was also one of the strongest for exports in recent memory and a hopeful way to begin the new year for farmers and agribusinesses looking at record grain crops.  U.S. corn exports in September increased 89 percent to 6.3 million metric tons (248 million bushels) from year ago levels; shipments to Japan, South Korea, Peru and Taiwan more than doubled. The top three customers for U.S. corn in September 2016 were Japan, Mexico and South Korea, respectfully.Exports of U.S. ethanol also rose sharply as monthly exports hit almost 100 million gallons for the first time since December 2011, up 59 percent from the previous September and representing 903,000 metric tons (35 million bushels) of corn equivalent.This boom included a return of China to the market after three months of no denatured shipments at all. Overall, Canada, Brazil and China ranked as the top three destinations for U.S. ethanol, and all three saw significant gains from a year ago. Ethanol exports to Singapore and the Philippines increased two fold.U.S. exports of all three meats included in feed grains in all forms calculations –  beef, pork and poultry –  also experienced gains in September, with product weight shipments exceeding 600,000 metric tons, up 14 percent from the previous year. These shipments equated to more than 1.8 million tons (71 million bushels) of feed grains.Exports of U.S. corn gluten feed and corn gluten meal (CGFM) rose almost 10 percent from September 2015. More than 153,000 metric tons of CGFM were exported in September 2016 as opposed to more than 139,000 metric tons in September 2015.Not every product category experienced an increase in September. Exports of distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) decreased 14 percent from the same time last year, from more than 1.15 million metric tons to 990,000 metric tons. This was due largely to reduced sales to China, last year’s top market.U.S. sorghum exports in September dropped 63 percent from last year, totaling 410,000 metric tons (16 million bushels), also due to reduced sales to China.U.S. exports of barley dropped 89 percent in September from year-ago levels to 1,700 metric tons (78,000 bushels).

The top Court has issued notice to Madras High Court, returnable in four weeks. A three Judge Bench of CJI Bobde, Justice Bopanna and Justice Ramasubramanian has also ordered a stay on impugned order of the High Court dated 25th Aug 2020 whereby HC had refused to quash the disciplinary proceedings and charge memo framed against the Labour Judge, holding that it was a premature stage for the petitioner to raise any plea with regard to any infirmity in the initiation of the Disciplinary Proceedings. The petitioner Judge was represented by Senior Advocate V Prakash and Advocate Senthil Jagdeesan before the Supreme Court The disciplinary action was initiated against the Labour Judge, for an order passed by him setting aside dismissal of a workman on the ground that the findings of the Enquiry Officer were unsustainable in law. The High Court had held that the Labour Judge had deliberately overlooked the Report of the Enquiry officer and drew adverse inference against the Management, inspite of availability of abundant evidence. Before the Madras High Court, a plea was filed by the District Judge, assailing the charge memorandum dated 29th June 2020 levelling allegations of serious misconduct while discharging his judicial duties as the Presiding Officer of the First Additional Labour Court, Chennai. According to the petitioner, the High Court failed to appreciate that the charge memo suffers from several infirmities both procedural and substantive in nature. It failed to appreciate that the division Bench had in its order had observed that the action could be taken against the petitioner on the administrative side “in case there is material to that affect”. However the assailed charge memo was filed in complete disregard of the High Court’s direction and relies only on order of the Single Judge whereby it had refused to expunge remarks made against the petitioner. The present plea has stated that annexure II of the charge memo comprising of the statements of imputations in support of the charge is completely against the directions of the division Bench. The plea has argued that the entire process cumulonimbus in passing of the award by the petitioner was in exercise of powers vested in a Presiding officer under Rule 39 of the Tamil Nadu Industrial Dispute Rules 1958. According to the petitioner, the High Court should have appreciated that a charge memo ought not to be issued against a judicial or quasi judicial authority merely because there is some mistake or error in passing the orders. The top Court has ok several occasions disapproved the practice of initiation of disciplinary proceedings against officers of subordinate judiciary merely because the judgements or orders passed by them are wrong. The plea has cited Supreme Court’s observation in case of Zunjarro Bhikaji Nagarkar vs Union of India where it was observed that if every error of law were to constitute a charge of misconduct, it would impinge upon the independent functioning of quasi-judicial officers. Facts: An award was rendered by the petitioner judge dated 28th June 2016 in the case of M.Palanisamy v. The Management, World Vision India, Chennai, where the dismissal of the workman was set aside on the ground that the findings of the Enquiry Officer were unsustainable in law, and since the Management had failed to produce vital records and justify the findings, reinstatement was ordered with only 25% back wages. When the award was challenged by the Management before the High Court, a Single Judge, passed an order of interim stay. After perusal of the entire records received from the labour Court, the High Court was of the prima facie opinion that the Labour Judge had deliberately overlooked the Report of the Enquiry officer and drew adverse inference against the Management, inspite of availability of abundant evidence. The court observed that the Labour Judge for some other unknown reason, had given such finding against the Management and directed the matter to be placed before the Administrative side of the High Court to take departmental action against the Labour Judge. A show cause notice was then issued to him by the Judicial Officer and he had submitted his explanation. He then approached the High Court seeking to expunge the remarks made against the him in the High Court’s order dated and to direct the administrative side of the High Court to give up the proceedings bearing initiated against the him. A miscellaneous petition was then filed by the Labour Judge before the High Court against the disciplinary action order, where the Court reiterated that the Judicial officer is being given an opportunity by way of show cause notice and the remarks made by the High Court were only prima facie and not a conclusive one and therefore, no prejudice is caused to the petitioner. The Court had given the petitioner, the liberty to putforth his case before the administrative side of the High Court, and had directed a copy of the petition to expunge the remarks filed by the Judicial Officer to be placed before the administrative side of the Court conducting enquiry against the petitioner. The petitioner had filed an appeal before the High Court where a division Bench had observed that before passing any adverse remarks or strictures, the Judicial Officer had to be put to notice. The appeal was allowed on the short ground that no notice was issued by the Court before passing the remarks, observing that the remarks made in the order would not bind the High Court on the administrative side for taking any independent action in case there was material to that effect. The High Court however resolved to proceed against the petitioner on the administrative side and, accordingly, suspended him on 11th March 2020, followed by a charge memo dated 29th June 2020. When the petitioner challenged the charge memo before the High Court, it held that it was a premature stage for the petitioner to raise any plea with regard to any infirmity in the initiation of the Disciplinary Proceedings or the issuance of the charge-memo to which a reply can be given by him for explaining his stand.
