  • IOC encourages countries to back Macolin convention

    first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The International Olympic Committee (IOC) encouraged countries to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, at the third International Forum for Sports Integrity (IFSI) yesterday (28 October).“This gathering today reflects the very nature of the IFSI, which is cooperation and partnership,”  IOC President Thomas Bach said. “We are a community which shares a common goal to protect competitions from manipulation and from related corruption.”The Forum saw delegates agree to 11 key points of action, the highest-profile of which was urging sports governing bodies ratify the Macolin Convention. These entities must also establish national platforms to fight sporting corruption, as set out by that Convention. This will be supported by the launch of the Sports Investigators Network, a coalition of investigators that have received training from Interpol and the IOC on fighting attempted manipulation.It said that each sports federation was responsible for protecting its sport and educating participants and officials about integrity, something that should be supported by betting operators. This, it said, should be achieved through communication campaigns using assets such as ambassadors, social media, and online and on-site activations. To ensure a flow of information, IFSI delegates agreed that reporting mechanisims are vital for governing bodies and governments. These should follow the best pratice guidelines set out in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and IOC’s Reporting Mechanisms in Sport: A Practical Guide for Development and Implementation guide. Regions: Europe Furthermore, use of data was seen as key for investigations. This exhange of information is crucial for upholding sporting integrity, which the IFSI argued met the needs for a public interest exception to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations.However, it also acknowledged that sports organisations have limited powers when it comes to obtaining evidence. As such, it said, there was a need to work closely with law enforcement agencies around the world. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) encouraged countries to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions, also known as the Macolin Convention, at the third International Forum for Sports Integrity (IFSI) yesterday (28 October). Topics: Sports betting Sports bettingcenter_img “It is crucial for government agencies and sports organisations to identify and apprehend those responsible for wrongdoing in sport, including competition manipulation,” Ronan O’Laoire, global coordinator for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s (UNODC) global programme for safeguarding sport from corruption and crime, said.“Having effective reporting mechanisms in place to facilitate this is essential, and we believe that the guide on reporting mechanisms in sport, developed through our partnership with the IOC, sets out a highly effective basis to do just that.”Bach echoed O’Laoire’s sentiment, stressing the importance of cooperation between investigators and sporting bodies.“With this network of 200 trained investigators from International and National Federations, National Olympic Committees and sports disciplinary bodies, we can really go to the heart of the problem, which is having access to information as soon as possible and, in some cases, even before the problem occurs,” Bach said.“Having this investigators’ unit in place will allow us to address issues from the roots,”The IOC and the European Union Agency for Law Enforcement Cooperation (EUROPOL) also signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish cooperation between the two organisations.“Corruption in sports is a global criminal phenomenon perpetrated by organised crime groups operating cross-border and often involved in other crimes,”  Europol’s deputy executive director, Wil van Gemertm said.“Working closely together in coalition with key partners like the IOC is crucial in the fight against corruption in sports. Combating sports corruption means not only defending the integrity of sports, but also protecting the public from criminals who cause significant damage to the safety, security and wellbeing of the EU citizens.”On 2 October, Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) also encouraged countries to back the Macolin Convention, emphasising how it will help with education and prevention activities related to manipulation in sport.To date Italy, Moldova, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and Ukraine have ratified the Macolin Convention, while a further 32 countries have signed it. While it was first published in 2014, it had to be ratified by at least five states before it could come into force. Since its introduction, however, it has been opposed by Malta, which claims its definition of illegal gambling potentially puts its licensees at risk of prosecution.The Treaty defines illegal gambling as “any sports betting activity whose type or operator is not allowed under the applicable law of the jurisdiction where the consumer is located”. Malta’s concerns ultimately blocked the Council of Europe from signing Macolin on behalf of its 28 member states.

  • Bitcoin is heading for $25,000 but I’m buying FTSE 100 stocks to get rich in 2021

    first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Do I buy more Bitcoin following this year’s astonishing run, or invest in FTSE 100 stocks despite their disappointing year?For me, the answer is straightforward. I’m backing FTSE 100 stocks to recover, as I think Bitcoin looks horribly risky at today’s price. I understand that others may see this completely differently, so here’s my thinking.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…First, hats off to Bitcoin. It may have next to no practical uses, but that hasn’t stopped it from soaring in value this year. At time of writing, it’s finally recovered its December 2017 peak of $20,000 to stand at $23,560. That’s an increase of 229% this calendar year alone. Other alt coins have done even better. For example, Ethereum is up 417%. Hey-ho.Bitcoin is a big winnerBy contrast, FTSE 100 stocks have had a dismal 2020. The index started the year trading at 7,542, but began this week 1,000 points down at 6,529. On the plus side, the index has recovered strongly since the lows of March, jumping around 30% since then.I believe there’s a lot more upside to come, when we finally shrug of the worst of the pandemic and get over Brexit.I think of myself as a contrarian investor. I prefer to buy asset classes after they’ve fallen, rather than when they’re riding high. That way I can pick them up at a bargain price, then sit back and watch as they recapture former glories.I never know exactly when they’ll recover. Nobody does. I get around that by only buying things I plan to hold for years and years. I believe life and investing are cyclical and every asset class has its day in the sun. The best time to buy them is when they’re in the shade. Which is exactly where FTSE 100 stocks are right now.More than £140bn has been wiped off the value of the UK’s blue-chip stocks this year. The FTSE 100 has underperformed almost every other major stock market index. One reason is that it contains precious few tech stocks, which have been the year’s biggest winners and helped the US S&P 500 rise 15% this year.The index also has outsize exposure to banking and oil stocks, which are among the biggest losers lately. As a contrarian, I’m betting that this year’s curse could become next year’s blessing.I favour FTSE 100 stocks todayWith oil creeping above $50 a barrel, oil stocks such as BP and Royal Dutch Shell could assert themselves next year. If recent vaccine breakthroughs put the pandemic behind us, banks could benefit from the wider economic revival.We may have to be patient, but the FTSE 100 will bounce back, as it always has in the past. Once Brexit is resolved, either way, foreign investors may look at us afresh, attracting cash from overseas. Most of my long-term wealth will go into the index and stay there.By contrast, I think this is the wrong time to buy Bitcoin. People who fill their boots at today’s pricey level risking a nasty January hangover. That’s exactly what happened in 2017. I’m backing FTSE 100 stocks instead.

  • Cheap UK shares for 2021! I’d buy these top stocks and hold them to 2030

    first_imgCheap UK shares for 2021! I’d buy these top stocks and hold them to 2030 Royston Wild | Saturday, 26th December, 2020 Are you seeking cheap stocks to buy in the new year? Well you’re in luck. London stock markets might be off the lows they hit during the early 2020 stock market crash. But there are plenty of top-quality UK shares that continue to trade much too cheaply.Here are a few I’d buy today in my Stocks and Shares ISA to hold all the way to 2030.5G 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…The digital revolution is going from strength to strength following the Covid-19 outbreak. In particular, growth in e-commerce, a rise in online fraud, and the growth of flexible working have all received a lift in 2020. These three items all provide excellent investing opportunities for UK share investors.I would buy into Unisys Corp to ride the revolution. The US company is a global titan in the field of IT services and its wingspan straddles a broad range of industries. I think it’s a brilliant buy for value investors. City analysts reckon annual earnings here will rocket 84% in 2021. This leaves it trading on a cheap forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13 times.Doubling up with UK sharesBut I’m mainly focused on UK shares and these two offer particularly good value for investors like me, I feel. They trade on mega-low earnings multiples and they carry enormous dividend yields.I consider Contour Global to be the perfect pick for these uncertain times. Not only has it experienced no adverse impact at all in 2020 following the Covid-19 crisis. But the essential nature of its services (it builds and operates power stations) means that it can also be expected to weather a long and severe downturn in the global economy.I don’t think these qualities are reflected at current prices. A price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 1.2 for 2021 suggests top value. But this is not the main reason this UK share provides spectacular bang for my buck. It also sports a monster 6.5% dividend yield. I’d buy Contour Global today and hold it for years as energy demand soars across the globe.London has been a magnet for people for millennia. And its allure is as strong today as ever, making The Berkeley Group (LSE: BKG) a great UK share for the long term. This London-focused housebuilder has a strong pipeline of new homes through construction activity and recent acquisitions.As the boffins at Hargreaves Lansdown note, the business enjoys high margins thanks to its expertise in “technically challenging” sites. The premium London market helps margins too, of course. A slow economic recovery and/or extended Covid-19 restrictions could damage profits growth in the near term. But in my opinion, an environment of low interest rates and huge government support should put a floor under homebuyer demand.Today The Berkeley Group trades on a reasonable forward P/E ratio of 13 times. It carries a jumbo 4.5% dividend yield too. I own shares in Taylor Wimpey and Barratt Developments to get rich with housing stocks. And I think this FTSE 100-quoted UK share is another way to make big returns over the next decade. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild owns shares in Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Hargreaves Lansdown.

The idea of designing a “underground” parking lot without generating large volumes of digging forced the main access to rise 1.40 m in relation to the level of the sidewalk by means of a staircase, which leads to a wide lobby in which the combination of wood, glass and stone materials in gray and white tones are present.

  • Court Ruling Puts Dicamba Technologies at Risk this Year

    first_imgAudio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/another-Dicamba-court-ruling.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.A U.S. appeals court this week vacated the registration of three dicamba herbicides, including Bayer’s XtendiMax.The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit stated in the ruling, “the absence of substantial evidence to support the EPA’s decision compels us to vacate the registrations.” The ruling comes after a group of environmental organizations filed a petition challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2018 registration decision.Chris Turner, U.S. Country Division Head for Bayer says the company strongly disagrees with the ruling and is working to minimize impacts on its customers.“We strongly disagree with the ruling and are assessing our options. If the ruling stands, we will work quickly to minimize any impact on our customers this season. Our top priority is making sure our customers have the support they need to have a successful season.”Turner says the EPA conducted an extensive review and considered all relevant science prior to issuing the current registration for XtendiMax.“In October 2018, the EPA extended the registration of XtendiMax and stated that ‘This action was informed by input from and extensive collaboration between EPA, state regulators, growers, academic researchers, pesticide manufacturers, and other stakeholders. EPA understands that dicamba is a valuable pest control tool for America’s growers.’ The EPA’s informed science-based decision reaffirms that this tool is vital for growers and does not pose any unreasonable risks of off-target movement when used according to label directions.”Turner says Bayer will continue to work with others so farmers can maintain access to XtendiMax.“Bayer stands fully behind our XtendiMax product. We are proud of our role in bringing innovations like XtendiMax forward to help growers safely, successfully, and sustainably protect their crops from weeds. We will continue working with the EPA, growers, academics, and others to maintain long-term access to this important tool.”The ruling pertains specifically to the EPA’s 2018 registration decision, which expires in December 2020. Bayer is currently working to obtain a new EPA registration for XtendiMax for the 2021 season and beyond and hopes to obtain the new registration by this fall. The ruling also includes dicamba herbicides from BASF and Corteva.USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue issued a statement supporting the EPA process.“Producers need all the tools in their toolbox to produce the world’s food, fuel, and fiber, and USDA re-affirms its support for EPA’s science-based process for assessing and managing ecological risks, balanced against the agricultural and societal benefits of crop protection tools,” he said. “USDA stands ready to assist its federal partners in meeting that goal. Farmers across America have spent hard earned money on previously allowed crop protection tools. I encourage the EPA to use any available flexibilities to allow the continued use of already purchased dicamba products, which are a critical tool for American farmers to combat weeds resistant to many other herbicides, in fields that are already planted. Unfortunately, the Ninth Circuit has chosen to eliminate one of those tools.”Sources: USDA, Bayer, and NAFB News Service Home Indiana Agriculture News Court Ruling Puts Dicamba Technologies at Risk this Year By Andy Eubank – Jun 4, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Court Ruling Puts Dicamba Technologies at Risk this Year Facebook Twitter Previous articleMcKinney Remains Confident Phase One Still Gets DoneNext articleCourt Ruling Puts Dicamba Technologies at Risk this Year on the HAT Friday Morning Edition Andy Eubanklast_img read more

  • Serbian authorities allow Belgian journalist to stay

    first_img RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Receive email alerts Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says February 19, 2018 Serbian authorities allow Belgian journalist to stay News News Organisation SerbiaBelgiumEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassment News June 7, 2021 Find out more Based in Belgrade for many years and reporting for various French-language media, Bertinchamps had been threatened with imminent expulsion. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) had launched a major campaign on his behalf, one that had been covered by Serbian, French, Belgian and other European media outlets. This afternoon, the interior ministry finally granted him a one-year temporary visa on the grounds he had given in his application, namely so that he could continue living with his Serbian family. However, we must not allow this victory to make us forget the harsh realities for independent Serbian journalists, who have to make many sacrifices to keep working and whose situation continues to worsen. The press conference scheduled for 2 p.m. on 20 February at Belgrade’s Medija Centar will therefore go ahead as planned. Serbia is ranked 66th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.Na veliko zadovoljstvo RSF-a (Reporteri bez granica), novinar Philippe Bertinchamps koji je trpeo pretnju proterivanja iz Srbije je upravo dobio boravišnu vizu. Philippe Bertinchamps, dugogodišnji dopisnik brojnih frankofonih medija iz Beograda koji je bio pod pretnjom deportacije, je konačno dobio dozvolu boravka u Srbiji zahvaljujući snažnom međunarodnom pritisku.Nakon javnog apela Reportera bez granica (RSF) i kampanje koju su preneli srpski, ali i francuski, belgijski i evropski mediji, novinar Philippe Bertinchamps je u ponedeljak, 19. februara, konačno dobio obnovu svoje boravišne dozvole u Srbiji na godinu dana. Ministarstvo unutrašnjih poslova Srbije je konačno odobrilo zahtev novinara i izdao mu vizu za privremeni boravak na osnovu spajanja porodice.Međutim, ova pobeda ne treba da zamagli teško stanje svakodnevnog života nezavisnih srpskih novinara, koji obavljaju svoju profesiju žrtvujući se, i čija se situacija pogoršava. Konferencija za štampu zakazana za utorak 20. februar u 14 sati u Medija centru u Beogradu, će se ipak, zbog ovog razloga, održati.
