The Commission also urged operators to “avoid any temptation to exploit the current situation for marketing purposes and be very cautious when seeking to cross-sell products”. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The British Gambling Commission has urged “extra operator vigilance” in Great Britain’s latest novel coronavirus (covid-19) lockdown and said it expects operators to again follow the guidance issued in March 2020. This included instructions to identify customers who may be at risk of harm, interacting with these customers and understanding the impact of this interaction. In addition, operators were told to review their thresholds for interaction and ensure they were appropriate given the changed financial circumstances many players would be facing. As a result, it said it expected operators to follow the initial lockdown guidance. It added that the fact that elite sport will continue means customers will have more betting options than in the previous lockdown. In a letter from chief executive Neil McArthur (pictured), the regulator said that more caution was required as people will be spending more time at home, and many may be “isolated and vulnerable”. Some players may gamble more, or for the first time, it noted. GC again reminds industry of responsibilities under lockdown Tags: Covid-19 Gambling Commission Neil McArthur The regulator will continue to publish reports based on operator data to show how gambling activity has changed under lockdown. For the new lockdown, the Commission has told operators to not just make these direct interactions, but also to interact more generally through methods such as safer gambling emails. 12th January 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle It added that operators must take “particular care” when onboarding new customers, and said decisions related to affordability checks for these customers must “reflect the environment we are in”.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The VOICE of InspirationBy Don LindseyI mentioned last week how excited I was for summer break to be here, and I am finding that this week is no exception. A couple of nights ago, I was listening to music, winding down for the night as I often do when I heard a song by a band named Walk Off the Earth. The song is called Summer Vibe and has a tropical… almost reggae sound to it. As the first few notes hit, and the band began by using a four-part harmony type of sound that always makes me stop what I’m doing and listen to it, I found myself happy that warmer weather is here and realized I’m ready for some summer fun.I’m probably not ready for all things summer, and I learned this earlier in the week when I was walking my dogs and thought I was going to melt in what was only 93-degree weather. While overheating doesn’t sound attractive to me, the prospect of what the summer holds outside of that is exciting.For starters, my daughter is going to camp on Sunday, and my oldest son is in Fort Pierce visiting his grandmother for a couple of weeks leaving just my middle son and my parents here for me to look after. That will be nice because I will be able to get some of the projects done that I need to do around here. It also opens opportunities for the wife and me to go places and have date type of outings that are so scarce when you’re raising children. This coming Friday for instance, we’re going to the water park which is always a blast anytime we can go and with the kids busy it will be nice to have some husband-wife time at one of our favorite places.Another aspect of the summer that I will enjoy is watching as many baseball games as possible. I was in love with the game when I was a kid, but the steroid debacle of the late 90’s and early 2000’s soured me on the game until recently, and I have realized while watching a lot more of the sport that I have missed it. I don’t get to see many Cincinnati Reds games down here but this year that’s alright as they are having a rough go of it. It’s moments like these when it also pays to be a New York Yankee fan because not only are they doing well but I get to see quite a bit of their games here. I am looking forward to spending some of my weekends and weeknights in front of the T.V. watching and relaxing.If you go around my house and ask the different members of the family what they are most excited for this summer, you would get different answers. One thing is for sure, however, and that is we are all looking forward to this season, spending time with each other, doing the things that we enjoy and seeking fun where ever we can find it. You might say we are all feeling the Summer Vibe. God Bless and have a wonderful week. charles towne Don Lindsey Gov.

TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns the resumption of police violence against journalists that has accompanied a new wave of demonstrations in Turkey’s biggest cities in the past few days. At least 12 journalists were injured or attacked by police in the space of two days in Istanbul, Izmir and the capital, Ankara. April 28, 2021 Find out more Read RWB’s statements on the “Occupy Gezi” protestsLead photo: Kemal Aslan / Camera Work Additional photos: AFP photo / Bülent Kiliç, AFP photo / Ozan Kose Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News to go further Receive email alerts TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law “It is unfortunately clear that the police did not learn any lessons from their appalling handling of the ‘Occupy Gezi’ protests,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Three months later, the police are still resorting to the same disproportionate violence and news providers are still being deliberately targeted although they are just trying to cover what is happening.“This unacceptable violence has been encouraged by the complete impunity enjoyed by those responsible for the abuses from May to July. We again call for full and impartial investigations in order to identify and punish the perpetrators of this violence.”Ali Açar (photo above), a reporter for the daily Cumhuriyet, and Kaan Sagnak, one of its photographers, were among the victims of police violence last night in Istanbul. Cumhuriyet said Sagnak was injured in the arm by a “rubber bullet fired from a distance of two metres.”Freelance photographer Ufuk Kosar was injured in the left arm (adjoining photo). DHA news agency reporter Ugur Can, Anatolia news agency reporter Bülent Doruk and Agence France-Presse photographer Ozan Kose were also the victims of police violence near Istanbul’s Taksim Square.Independent journalist and photographer Ahmet Sik told Reporters Without Borders that a rubber bullet hit him in the chest as he was trying to cover an arrest on Istiklal Avenue, near Taksim Square. The police drove him and other reporters and cameramen back to prevent them covering what was happening. One policeman aimed his rubber-bullet rifle at Sik while ordering him not to approach (lead photo).Serdar Akinan, the owner of the Vagus.TV website, reported on Twitter that a policeman with no identification number on his helmet head-butted one of his reporters, Rabia Celik, as she was taking photos last night.Metehan Ud, a reporter for the left-wing daily Günlük Evrensel, received a beating from policemen in the western city of Izmir. The Association of Turkish Journalists (TGC) has condemned the new wave of violence, recalling that nearly 100 journalists were attacked or detained during the “Occupy Gezi” protests.On 9 September, two Günlük Evrensel reporters based in Ankara, Hasan Akbas and Birkan Bulut, were beaten by police when they tried to cover a demonstration in Tuzluçayir, a neighbourhood that is part of the district of Mamak. Akbas said the police attacked them after seeing their press cards and after making sure there were no witnesses.Berna Sahin, a reporter for the left-wing daily Birgün, lost consciousness for several minutes after a stun grenade exploded near her in the Istanbul neighbourhood of Okmeydani on 9 September. Sahin said it was clear that she was “deliberately” targeted because she was on a street controlled by the police and was clearly identifiable as a journalist, and because no demonstrator was anywhere near her at the time.Riza Özel, a journalist with the daily Hürriyet, was injured in the leg by a rubber bullet while trying to take cover as police dispersed a demonstration on the Middle East Technical University campus in Ankara on 6 September. He was also hit on the head by a stone thrown by a demonstrator and was hospitalized after losing consciousness.

DNY59/iStock(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — The grandfather charged with negligent homicide after his 1-year-old granddaughter fatally fell from a cruise ship was quiet and stoic as he appeared in a Puerto Rican courtroom Wednesday.During Salvatore Anello’s preliminary hearing, the prosecution said they have witnesses, both on and off the island, they would call to testify.Chloe Wiegand, an 18-month-old from Indiana, was traveling with her grandparents and parents on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas when she fell to her death in July as the ship was docked in San Juan.Chloe was with her grandfather in the children’s water park play area when her grandfather put her on a wood railing in front of a wall of glass windows, according to attorney Michael Winkleman.Winkleman said the grandfather put Chloe on the railing thinking she’d bang on the glass. However, the window was open and she was “gone,” Winkleman said in July, calling her death a “tragic accident that was preventable.”Prosecutor Laura Hernandez told ABC News that prosecutors are confident in the case and would not have pursued a negligent homicide charge if it was not supported by the evidence.Prosecutors on Wednesday told Judge Gisela Alfonso Fernandez they had discovery evidence to present to the defense. The judge agreed to postpone further proceedings until the discovery evidence was in the hands of the defense.Prosecutors deny that Royal Caribbean had any influence in their decision to charge Anello.Anello’s defense attorney, Jose Ortiz, declined to make a statement after court. Anello is next due in court on Dec. 16.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

The aircraft will also feature new high endurance seats, fuel system enhancements, and new exterior lighting.“Aerial refueling capability is a game-changer for the E-2D community and future operations in the high-end fight,” said Cmdr. Scott Wastak, VAW-120 commanding officer. “We will now begin to train instructor pilots and refuel with several different Navy and Air Force tanker aircraft, including F/A-18s.” View post tag: E-2D View post tag: US Navy
