Alberta regulator backs single-event betting in Canada

first_img Tags: Alberta Gaming Liquor & Cannabis Alberta Regions: Canada Provincial lottery operator the British Columbia Lottery Corporation has already voiced its support for the legislation, while media business Score Media and Gaming (theScore) and a number of major sports leagues have also backed single-event betting in Canada. Canada’s Criminal Code currently only permits consumers to wager on at least three games or more in an individual bet, meaning that a wager on a single sports match or event is regarded as illegal. Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis (AGLC), the regulatory body for gambling in the Canadian province of Alberta, has announced its support for changes in law to permit single-event sports betting in the country. Read the full story on iGB North America. The AGLC has now joined this growing list of supporters, with acting president and chief executive Kandice Machado saying the bill would help to modernize gambling laws in the country.

Black Lives Matter Group coming to Apopka

The group plans to walk from Alonzo Williams Park at 515 South Hawthorne Avenue in Apopka to The Apopka Police Department at 112 East 6th Street. The event is planned to start at 6:00 PM.Demarkus Johnson is the President of Black Lives Matter – FL Chapter and is organizing the event.Johnson is from South Apopka. He graduated Apopka High School in 2005, and is currently attending Bethune Cookman College in Daytona Beach majoring in Criminal Justice.Johnson says the group has very specific goals.“We want the police to wear body cameras and to not turn them off. We want them to be fair and treat everyone equally. We want people to do their research and then get out and vote.”The group marched in Orlando last weekend, and plans events in Sanford (July 17th), Apopka (July24th) and in Kissimmee (on July 31st ). Previously Black Lives Matter – FL Chapter staged events in 2013 in protest of the Trayvon Martin shooting.On the Black Lives Matter website, they describe their organization as “An ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.  It is an affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.” And give a speak? You should go to a bigger school than your backyard! Sandy Anyone correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve heard an interview on TV that the only times the cameras are allowed to be turned off is for restroom breaks and during lunch.They do not have carte blanche to turn the cameras off any time they choose. If a camera is turned off and it was not authorized they are to face a punishment of some kind. If a camera becomes inoperable they have policy’s in place for that too. The south apk lawyer This is a terrorist group funded by George Soros. He has given them 44 MILLION dollars to cause trouble. Yes, some of them may think they are being “targeted for demise”, but seriously? That is BULL. They should never be allowed to disrupt one single law abiding citizen. Not for 10 seconds.

The percentage is lower only because there are three times as many whites as there are Blacks. 84% of all whites are shot by Whites and 93% of all Blacks are shot by blacks. Also while more whites are shot by Cops the percentage of Blacks shot shot by Cops is almost 3.1. Jan -Nov 2015 DOJ figures show (per million people) 6.2%Blacks (261) vs 2.1% (508).

Common Sense If you don’t see the problem then you are the problem July 13, 2016 at 10:07 am LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Reply Dee The south apk lawyer My question is why??? There has been no police shootings in Apopka however there has been MULTIPLE black on black shootings. This poses another question, why are there no marches for that cause? Seems to me there are a lot of ignorant people that are not educated in the whole mess. So incredably sad that so many lifes are being wasted. Another question? Without law enforcement body cams or not everyone is in trouble. I dont think body cams are a bad idea at all so lets march to the drug dealers wearing them, the rapest and the murders. So another question?? If all cops wear body cams will everyone shut the hell up and admit when you see the evidence that the cop was in 99% of cases was doing his/her job. Cops put up with unbelievable BS to keep YOU safe, your children safe, your parents & your family. Its so F’d up how everyone sees the worse 2 seconds of a video and assume the cop was in the wrong. People take responsibily for your actions. You wanna fight then consider the fight on terroism. Go fight ISIS for your freedom. Blm are setting themselves up to go backwards. Im confused by all the hype. The ignorant people they interview for blm cause does no one any favors. Most dont even know why they are there. The hatred spewed at these events, the garbage left everywhere and the children they bring into a volitile situation makes the USA look like a third world county. SMH KP The US Constitution allows protest gatherings. There are no standards for validity of how ill informed the protests are. Even if the protest is hate speech against the police they are still obligated to protect the protesters. Your idiotic rant was cancelled when you said “let’s go up to the drug dealers, rapists and murderers” with body cams on. You know these types of people? We should March on your violent friend knowing ass. Also, if you are an adult, please use spell check.

I just hope that this is the case, when this protest comes to our city. Some people think that this protest should be just for South Apopka, and that the protest march should not be in the City of Apopka limit. I believe these people are missing the point of the march, altogether. One thing I do wonder myself is, why spend so much money buying the body cameras for the police, and then have a policy in place, that allows them to turn them off? That to me seems to defeat the purpose of the body cameras. Don’t think for a minute, that because I said that, that I don’t support the police, because I do. I would not want their jobs, under any circumstances, or for any amount of money! Let’s pray for our area, and that the protest goes peacefully. Our police are awesome.

All while wondering if you are in the cross hairs of some nut-job emboldened by the rhetoric.Hopefully they are at least allowed to wear proper protective equipment. No they can’t say because it violates their first amendment right Reply July 14, 2016 at 10:02 pm Why protest in a small town? Go to a bigger one.

I can’t bring myself to do anything that makes an officers job even more dangerous than an average day. A March of any kind gets media coverage which also attracts crazy radicals that can get access to firearms way to easily. In this day and age I really feel a March does more harm than good. We have so many other avenues to get our message out that don’t put innocent people (those marching and protecting) in danger.

The Varatojo House is placed on a Hill, east from the city of Torres Vedras, Portugal.Set in a polygonal configuration plot and given its sun exposure (predominantly North/South) and also its main Northern wind direction, the design strategy began by considering the following issues:Save this picture!© Richard John SeymourPromoting relationship between building and landscape, taking advantage of the place’s overlooking position over the city, castle and surroundings;Save this picture!© Richard John Seymour Encouraging a strong complementarity between the house and the garden in order to create an intense visual relation between the inside and the outside, between construction and natural elements;Creating transversal relations between the North Side – (view) and the South side – (inner garden) mainly through the pool on the lower floor and modeling land of the garden;Save this picture!© Richard John SeymourRecycling of materials such as the walls of wooden pilings (former railway sleepers), introducing a certain experimentalism and innovation from the way the material is usually used for and thought to be;Encouraging the use of native vegetation in the garden.Save this picture!Floor PlanDesign Concept:The house is shaped by a spiral gesture intending to take advantage of the plot outline.Save this picture!© Richard John SeymourWe opted for the construction of a limit, a kind of line that gradually takes shape and thickness to accommodate the housing program.This gesture starts with the ramped access to the lot and ends on the opposite side of the house, achieving at this point two-stories high, thereby the contour of the house also reinforced this “gesture in spiral”.The adopted design strategy allowed us to create a living space on the site’s south side, protected from the strong Northern winds, which forced the existence of the main construction on the north side.Save this picture!Floor PlanProgram:From a functional standpoint, the program is distributed in three floors.The groundfloor centralizes most of the program.Save this picture!© Richard John SeymourThere is located the common areas – kitchen, living room and dining room – constrained to a single and continuous open space, enhanced by the ceilling plan.

U.S. military budget seen from Italy: More arms than ever

first_imgPublished Feb. 18 in Il Manifesto in Dinucci’s “Art of War” column, which examines Trump’s proposed military budget. Translation by John Catalinotto.The “Budget for the Future of America,” which the U.S. government submitted, shows what the Trump administration’s priorities are in the federal budget for fiscal year 2021 (which begins Oct. 1). First of all, it reduces social spending: For example, it cuts the required budget for the Department of Health and Human Services by 10 percent. Meanwhile, health authorities themselves report that influenza alone has caused about 10,000 deaths in the USA from October to February, out of a population of 330 million. This news is kept quiet by the big media, which instead are raising a global alarm over the 1,770 deaths due to the coronavirus in China, a country with 1.4 billion inhabitants. One must suspect the real purpose of the relentless media campaign, which sows terror on everything Chinese. To justify the U.S. Budget, its framers insist that the U.S. “faces challenges from resurgent rival nation states, including Russia and China.” [For all quotes about the budget, see tinyurl.com/qnfcuu6/.]They charge China with “waging cyber-enabled economic warfare against the United States and its allies” and of “wanting to shape the Indo-Pacific region,” which is critical to U.S. security and economic interests, “in its image.”In order for the region to be “independent of malign Chinese influence,” the U.S. government is providing “$30 million for the Global Engagement Center to counter Chinese propaganda and disinformation.” In the context of “growing strategic competition,” the U.S. government states: “The Budget prioritizes funding for programs that would deliver warfighting advantages against China and Russia” and all other adversaries. To this end, President Trump announced that, to ensure internal security and promote U.S. interests abroad, my Budget provides $740.5 billion for National Defense” (while it provides $94.5 billion for the DHHS). The military budget includes $69 billion for overseas war operations, more than $19 billion for 10 warships, $15 billion for 115 F-35 fighters and other aircraft, and $11 billion to strengthen land armaments. The Pentagon’s science and technology programs require $14 billion for the development of hypersonic and direct energy weapons, space systems and 5G networks. These are just a few items on a long shopping list (with public money), which includes all the most advanced weapons systems, with colossal profits for Lockheed Martin and other weapons industries. In addition to the Pentagon’s budget, a number of military expenditures are entered in the budgets of other departments. In fiscal year 2021, the Department of Energy will receive $27 billion to maintain and modernize the nuclear arsenal. The Department of Homeland Security will also receive $52 billion for its own secret service. The Department of Veterans Affairs will receive $243 billion (10 percent more than in 2020) for retired military personnel.Taking these and other items into account, U.S. military spending will exceed $1 trillion in fiscal 2021. The military expenditure of the United States exerts a driving effect on the military expenditures of other countries, which, however, remain at much lower levels. Even taking into account the Pentagon budget alone, U.S. military spending is 3 to 4 times higher than China’s and more than 10 times higher than Russia’s. In this way “The Budget supports U.S. military dominance in all warfighting domains — air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace,” says the White House, announcing that the United States will soon be able to produce 80 new nuclear warheads a year in two plants. The budget for the future of the U.S. may mean the end of the world.  FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
