Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Poker Casino & games Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Dutch gambling regulator Kansspelautoriteit (KSA) has warned consumers over the dangers of taking part in illegal poker tournaments, after noting an increase in such events during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.The KSA said it had uncovered illegal tournaments in Hoofddorp, Hoorn, Capelle aan den IJsel, Zaandam, Tilburg and Rotterdam, handing out fines to participants and also to individuals who organised the events.Holland Casino is the only operator currently permitted to offer casino games, including poker, under regulations set out in the Dutch Gambling Act. Poker is only permitted outside Holland Casino locations under certain conditions, such as if an event takes place in a closed circle and not commercially.This will change once the regulated igaming market opens for business, from 1 July next year.As such, the regulator warned consumers it is unable to offer protection in unregulated poker events, such as ensuring tournaments are run fairly, responsible gambling measures are in place and age control is carried out.The KSA’s head of enforcement, Marc Merx, said the primary reason for the rise in illegal activities in recent weeks is due to regulated gambling venues having been forced to temporarily close due to the government-ordered coronavirus measures.“Enforcement activity in the time of coronavirus focuses on meetings of people; a logical consequence is that they discover illegal poker tournaments,” Merx said.“A second explanation is that more illegal poker tournaments are organised because Holland Casino, the only one that is allowed to offer commercial poker for money in the Netherlands, is closed.”The warning comes after the KSA last week also warned that while it would be lenient towards those organising bingo as a social activity under lockdown, it would not hesitate to act if games are organised to earn money or scam players.The KSA said it had seen an increase in bingo games being offered online amid the coronavirus crisis. Such games, in which a player can win a prize based on luck, were generally only permitted with a licence, it noted.The Danish Gambling Authority (Spillemyndigheden) issued a similar warning after noting a rise in unlicensed bingo games being offered both online or in physical venues.

How are you addressing those anxieties?” Jeff Fromm, millennial marketing expert, asked attendees at the 2015 Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit, which began Wednesday morning in Kansas City, Mo. The Summit, which continues through Thursday, May 7th, is themed “The Journey to Extraordinary.” Sessions are focused on exploring animal agriculture’s continuous efforts to embrace new technologies that will help feed a growing population while measuring sustainability, engage consumers in innovative ways to bridge the knowledge gap, and highlight initiatives that demonstrate agriculture’s commitment to transparency.Fromm addressed the audience this morning about how companies and organizations can foster “brand love” among the millennial generation. “Uniqueness, meaningfulness, innovation and authenticity are the four variables impacting brand loyalty for millennials,” Fromm said. He went on to note that, to millennials, authenticity is gauged by transparency.Other speakers echoed Fromm’s call for a focus on consumer needs, with National Geographic’s Dennis Dimick giving an in-depth look at how the organization covers agricultural issues, particularly in the 2014 “Future of Food” series. “We didn’t want to just do a series for people in agriculture,” Dimick said. “We’re trying to reach the public who are interested in food.”Food, Dimick noted, is a crucial area of common ground that will help foster conversations about the future of agriculture. “Food is one of the key binding rituals of our civilization,” he said.Closing out the morning sessions was a panel on sustainability, titled “Fact, Fiction, the Future – Measuring Sustainability.” Panelists included Roger Cady, global sustainability lead, Elanco, Paul Bredwell, vice president of environmental programs, U.S. Poultry and Egg Association and Brian Jones, responsible sourcing manager, Nestle North America.To learn more about this session and other sessions taking place today during the Stakeholders Summit, please visit the Alliance website.

This is unprecedented since the Islamic Republic of Iran’s creation. June 9, 2021 Find out more February 15, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 International community urged to face up to responsibilities during UN Human Rights Council’s review of Iran The press freedom organisation added: “The Council must demand the release of all the political prisoners, including the journalists, and must ensure that the Iranian government respects the right to freedom of expression in practice.” Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists March 18, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa Ambeyi Ligabo, the special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, urged Iran in January 2004 to bring its judicial procedures into line with international standards and to adopt a human rights charter. In particular, he said revolutionary courts should no longer try crimes of opinion and he called for the abolition of prison sentences for crimes of opinion and press offences. The United Nations Human Rights Council is to review the situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran on 15 February. Until now, Iran has escaped any kind of sanction since the Council’s creation in March 2006. A firm decision by the international community, including China and the countries of the Islamic Conference, would help to induce Iran to respect its human rights undertakings. When Iran was the first country to be reviewed by the Council in March 2007, the debate took place behind closed doors and the files were quickly classified after much bargaining among the various countries present. By using ideological and regionalist arguments with its “neighbours and friends,” Iran finally emerged unscathed. Iran is now the world’s biggest prison for the media with more than 80 journalists and netizens currently detained (48 journalists, 2 media assistants, 18 netizens, 7 other arrests announced by the intelligence ministry and 8 under investigation). Since last June, the crackdown on criticism of the regime’s political and religious institutions has created a climate of terror leading to self-censorship and the flight of many journalists into exile. When journalists are arrested, their most fundamental rights are flouted and they often subjected to long spells of being held incommunicado or in solitary confinement. News Follow the news on Iran The Islamic Republic has just been celebrating its 31st anniversary but its press freedom record during the past 31 years has been appalling. Several thousand newspapers have been closed since February 1979, hundreds of journalists have been arrested, hundreds have been sentenced to long jail terms and dozens have been summarily executed or murdered. “The countries that say nothing about the bloody crackdown that has been taking place in Iran for the past eight months are accomplices to these crimes,” Reporters Without Borders said. “When the UN Human Rights Council conducts its Universal Periodic Review of Iran, it must show that it is up to the task. Its credibility must not be eroded yet again.” News “The international community must now turn its words into actions,” Reporters Without Borders said, calling for the Iranian government to be censured for its serious human rights violations and calling for UN special rapporteurs to be sent to Iran as matter of urgency. These periods of being held incommunicado can be regarded as forced disappearances and crimes against humanity and constitute violations of international law. Since 2000, several UN special rapporteurs have formulated criticisms and recommendations regarding respect for human rights in Iran. to go further News IranMiddle East – North Africa After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Following a visit to Iran from 15 to 27 February 2004, Louis Joinet, the head of the working group on arbitrary detention, published a damning report on the deterioration in the situation of human rights, including freedom of expression. He noted that solitary confinement for very long periods was widely used in Iran’s prisons and could regarded as a “prison within prison,” one that lent itself to grave abuses. No action was even taken on Joinet’s recommendations.

With no Fish & Game wardens available, Sheriff’s deputies monitored the bears’ movements until they disappeared back into the foothills. Photos: Staff photographer Brandon VillalovosWith recent bear sightings in Sierra Madre, Monrovia and La Cañada Flintridge, authorities in Pasadena are warning that it’s only a matter of time before residents encounter a bear here, too.Lisa Derderian, Acting City Public Information Officer for the City of Pasadena, said bears coming down to Pasadena neighborhoods is quite common this time of the year.“Every year we have bear sightings in Pasadena,” she said. “We have had more in our neighboring communities recently. Obviously with the weather, they are coming down lower.”Derderian said if you do see a bear in your neighborhood, stay away and to leave any close encounters “to the professionals.”“If there is imminent danger, always call 911,” Derderian said. “Sometimes when people see on the news that there is a bear in the neighborhood they pack up the family and go to take pictures. A bear is not a tourist attraction. We want people to stay away from the bear.”In Monrovia, CBS reported getting calls about a bear being seen knocking down a trash can in an unspecified neighborhood Wednesday morning.Last Friday, authorities in La Canada Flintridge decided to put three area schools on a temporary precautionary lockdown due to a bear sighting in the backyard of a nearby home Thursday. Other schools in the area were notified as Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies monitored the bear.In April, three bears that local residents called “Mama and the Cubs” romped through a Monrovia neighborhood and even made their way into a backyard looking for food.This is definitely a good time to start learning what you should do if you see one in your neighborhood.The Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA said black bears, the only bears local to Southern California, are typically timid and nonaggressive, unless defending their young, and prefer to avoid people. But certain conditions can drive them towards humans.“When bears become ‘food conditioned,’ they will seek human food out instead of finding their own natural foods,” the Pasadena Humane Society said. “Fires and droughts can also force bears and other wildlife further in their search for food and water.”The Society said the normal human reaction to encountering a bear is to freeze or run away, but these actually send the bear the wrong message.“You need to let the bear know that it needs to leave! First, make sure the bear has a safe escape route. When you are a safe distance from the bear, make eye contact and yell at the bear. If you have bear spray, make sure you are upwind of the bear before using it,” the PHS said.To keep bears away from your home, the Pasadena Humane Society has listed some basic tips for homeowners:• Do not put out trash cans the night before pick up• Store garbage cans in a garage or shed• Keep garbage cans clean. Disinfect with ammonia or bleach.• Promptly collect fruit that falls from trees. Harvest fruit as soon as it’s ripe.• Remove plants that attract bears, such as any berries including Dogwood.• Eliminate bird feeders during spring and summer when there are natural foods available for birds.• Eliminate compost piles.• Keep barbecue grills clean and free of drippings.• Consider purchasing bear spray and keep it at your front/back door.

Internal, external, and supplier diversity efforts were among the categories upon which companies were evaluated.“At Fannie Mae, we are proud to foster a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve,” said Jeffery Hayward, EVP and chief administrative officer at Fannie Mae. “This recognition by NBIC is a great honor and we will continue our work to drive diversity and inclusion in both the workplace and the marketplace.”Fannie Mae demonstrates its commitment to diversity and inclusion by attracting, engaging, and retaining a diverse workforce; attracting, developing, and promoting opportunities for diverse suppliers, vendors, and business partners, and fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace.“The Best-of-the-Best designation honors corporations for their commitment to America’s diverse employees and business owners, which includes LGBT people, people of color, women, and people with disabilities,” said NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson. “This designation is highly competitive and is bestowed only to corporations that we see constantly striving to strengthen and celebrate diversity. These corporations being honored are true leaders in ongoing global commitments to create a better future for all diverse communities in business.”Accenture, ADP, Altria, American Airlines, and Anthem are among some other 2020 Best-of-the-Best Corporations for Inclusion. Additionally, the NBIC celebrated the five finalists for the Best-of-the-Best Program or Initiative of the Year Award including Cummins EY, Hilton, IBM, and Sodexo.The House Financial Services Committee held a hearing earlier in the year to review data on diversity and inclusion within banking institutions in the U.S., which DS News covered.Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee Maxine Waters (D-California) called the hearing “historic and groundbreaking.”The 44 banks who submitted data have more than $50 billion in assets, and Waters said the information provided is essential to the industry.“The information they have provided is illuminating and is something that the American public deserves to see,” she said.Waters added that she hoped the hearing brings diversity “out of the shadows and into the light.”The report found that banking institutions were 58% white in 2018, which was lower than the national average of 63%. African Americans made up 12% of the workforce populations of financial institutions, Hispanics accounted for 11%, and the Asian population was 12%.
