Betsson subsidiary sees Swedish fine reduced on appeal

first_img Companies: Betsson It described the regulation on bonuses as “vague”, and easily interpreted in a range of different ways. Regions: Sweden Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance Spelinspektionen said the Administrative Court mainly shared its interpretation of current provisions in the Gaming Act, but made a partly different assessment regarding the definition of bonus and the requirement for the direct connection of the bonus to the game. 21st December 2020 | By Richard Mulligan The Administrative Court in Linköping, hearing an appeal over a Spelinspektionen ruling issued last June over bonus rules violations, decreased an initial fine of SEK19m (€1.9m/$2.3m) to SEK14m. The same court rejected an appeal by PlayOjo operator Skill On Net on the SEK14m fine it was also handed last June regarding illicit bonuses and illicit lotteries. “When assessing the size of the penalty fee, the administrative court states that an overall assessment must be made based on all relevant circumstances,” Spelinspektionen said in a statement. “The court considers that the Swedish Gaming Inspectorate had reason to decide on a warning and a penalty fee.” Last June, Spelinspektionen found that NGG Nordic and Skill On Net had breached regulations by offering players bonuses on multiple occasions. The regulations that came into force from January 2019 restrict operators to offering one bonus per player upon sign-up. NGG Nordic, an operational subsidiary in the Betsson Group, has seen a fine imposed by Sweden’s gambling authority substantially reduced on appeal.center_img As well as both being fined more than €1m, both groups were also issued a warning by the regulator. The Administrative Court also estimated NGG Nordic’s turnover at a different amount than the regulator. Reacting to the penalty at the time, Betsson said it believed its offering was compliant with Swedish legislation, though had made changes immediately following Spelinspektionen’s intervention and subsequent clarification of rules. Topics: Legal & compliance Legal Last week, the Linköping court dismissed an appeal by United Lottery Solutions, a subsidiary of lottery betting giant Lottoland, against a warning and a fine issued by Spelinpektionen last year.

Program, Budget and Finance prepares to listen to the church

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Program, Budget and Finance prepares to listen to the church Budget committee is ‘in a receptive mode’ as it turns towards convention February 27, 2015 at 3:13 pm Sauls said he believed that “the church exists to do two things: to serve the poor and create servants of the poor.” That’s fine and well, but I recall that Jesus is noted instead as saying “make disciples” to describe what the church exists for (The Great Commission). Our Commission is to model, fashion and cobble worshipers of Jesus Christ, learners of Jesus Christ, and followers of Jesus Christ who, of course, will then become servants if what has been learned is then followed.It’s that fine distinction that separates us from the Department of Social Services or the World Health Organization.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThat listening will inform the General Convention budget committee’s preparation of a budget to propose to the June 25-July 3 meeting of General Convention in Salt Lake City.PB&F prepared itself for the listening phase of its work by doing some listening – and inquiring – of its own after it received the draft 2016-2018 triennium budget that Executive Council passed last month. (General Convention Joint Rule II.10.c.iii calls for Executive Council to give PB&F a draft budget no less than four months before the start of General Convention, essentially by February of convention year).Diocese of Maine Bishop Stephen Lane, PB&F vice chair, told the committee at the outset of the meeting that “we are in a receptive mode.”Diocese of Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth, chair of council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission, and the Rev. Susan Snook of Arizona, who chaired FFM’s budget subcommittee, led PB&F members in a detailed explanation of the draft budget. The committee then spent time studying the budget’s line-by-line assumptions and allocations, and its larger issues.Those larger issues included the role of the budget in guiding the church through a time of change and the desire on many people’s part for the church-wide structure to operate in a different way to better respond to the challenges the church faces. The committee also faces the uncertainty of crafting a budget while the church considers the recommendations on structural changes to the church made to General Convention by the Task Force for Reimagining the Episcopal Church. Those recommendations will come to Salt Lake City. Some of the church’s other committees, commissions, agencies and boards could also propose structural changes for this summer’s convention to consider, as could deputies, bishops and dioceses by way of resolutions.Diocese of Ohio Bishop Mark Hollingsworth, chair of Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committee on Finances for Mission, makes a point during Program, Budget and Finance’s plenary session Feb. 24 as the Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd of Massachusetts, PB&F chair, listens. The Rev. Susan Snook of Arizona, left, chaired FFM’s budget subcommittee. She and Hollingsworth handed off council’s draft budget to PB&B during the Feb. 23-25 meeting. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAnd, convention and PB&F will also be aware that the 27th presiding bishop, due to be elected at this meeting of convention, might cast a new vision for the church during his or her nine-year term and beyond.Also during the meeting here in Maryland, PB&F members heard Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, House of Deputies President Gay Jennings, Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls and Executive Officer of General Convention the Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe describe their visions for the 2016-2018 budget and the process being used to build it.Jefferts Schori urged the committee to continue to think about building the budget around those things that can be done best or most appropriately by church-wide structures. Some of the types of work she suggested were supporting growth toward mutual responsibility and interdependence of the church’s individual and institutional members; stewarding the resources of the church including its corporate decision-making tradition, finances, property, reputation, the historical record, liturgical norms and tradition, and what she called boundary norms such as anti-racism, inclusivity and clergy discipline. Jefferts Schori also cited fostering relationships with other churches and religious communities, as well as relationships with governments and supranational institutions such as the United Nations.The Rev. Canon Cornelia Eaton, PB&F member from Navajoland, elevates the host at the fraction during Eucharist on Feb. 25. Eaton, who is canon to the ordinary in Navajoland, was ordained a priest on Feb. 7. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe presiding bishop praised the work done in the last few triennia to develop a “coherent vision of what mission is about; that it’s about building the reign of God in our own day.” She noted that this vision has increasingly been anchored in the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission. The 2016-2018 draft budget is built around the structure the marks provide, as is the 2013-2015 budget.Jennings reminded the committee that “our stewardship of money is a spiritual matter, and the budget is a deeply theological document.”She also warned the members that during the budget debate there were “bound to be disagreements, misunderstandings, and even confusion” and she urged them to “examine budget decisions using the lens of how we can empower, equip, and support congregations in every manner possible.”“Ask the hard questions, use fresh eyes, anticipate the questions of deputies and bishops, remember the poor and underserved, and let Jesus be your companion,” she told them.Sauls said he believed that “the church exists to do two things: to serve the poor and create servants of the poor.”He told the committee the story of St. Laurence of Rome, a third century deacon, who was ordered by a Roman prefect to bring him the treasure of the church. The prefect was expecting to receive the church’s money and property, including vestments and communion vessels made of precious metals and jewels. Instead, on the appointed day, Laurence assembled before the prefect the poor people of Rome. Laurence was martyred because of his answer.PB&F member Samuel Gould administers communion to Chief Operating Officer Bishop Stacy Sauls during Eucharist Feb. 25. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“That is a terribly important thing for us to remember,” Sauls said. “The church as I see it, as it administers its property which, though it rarely feels like it to us, is vast, exists to be the trustee of those who are poor.”Barlowe said “we need a healthy, growing, loving, serving, transforming church at every level of its being.”PB&F members “have the critical responsibility of helping General Convention consider how a church-wide budget can best strengthen and inspire the whole church in restoring people to unity with God and with each other in Christ.”Thus, he said, framing the budget through the Five Marks of Mission moves the church towards that goal.“But as with any system of classification, the Five Marks of Mission can become a very confusing filter if we try too hard to make something fit into the marks and then leave other things outside of the marks,” he said.He urged the committee to confront that possible confusion and explain to the church how those budget items classified as Five Marks of Mission spending and those outside of that structure “work together to serve the mission of the church.”Episcopal Church Treasurer N. Kurt Barnes responds to a question. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceAs is expected at this stage of the budget process, PB&F made no changes in council’s draft budget. The Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd of Massachusetts, PB&F chair, recollected the gospel for the First Sunday in Lent, the previous day on Feb. 22, during which Jesus is tempted in the wilderness for 40 days.“Our temptation here in the next few days is that we will try to start to tinker with things that are in the budget as given to us, to try to respond to our own inner leanings about how we should fund different parts of the church and to respond to people that have already begun to talk to us,” she said.Lloyd said the purpose of the meeting was instead to study the draft budget and learn from Hollingsworth, Snook and church-wide staff members who were present so that the committee members could understand council’s proposal and be prepared to get feedback from the church.“Jesus was tempted for 40 days,” she reminded the committee. “We have 117 days. Gird your loins.”PB&F’s listening initially will come in two primary forms. First, committee members will get comments and questions as they make budget presentations to the pre-General Convention synods about to begin in each of the church’s nine provinces. Second, a web-based comment process open to the whole church is due to be available within the week.The Rev. Canon Victoria Heard, Dallas, asks a question Feb. 24 during a PB&F plenary session. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe committee’s listening proceeds from surveys about the budget conducted by Executive Council and its FFM committee, along with feedback FFM received after it released for comment a preliminary version of its draft budget last fall.Once in Salt Lake City, PB&F’s listening phase will end with two hearings. The first on the evening of June 25 will focus on the income the draft budget assumes will be available during the 2016-2018 triennium. The second hearing the next evening will center on how that money would be spent during those three years.PB&F will use the comments it receives, council’s draft budget and any legislation passed by or being considered by General Convention to create a final budget proposal. That budget must be presented to a joint session of the Houses of Bishops and Deputies no later than the third day before convention’s scheduled adjournment. According to the draft convention schedule, that presentation is set to take place at 2:15 p.m. MDT on July 1.The two houses then debate and vote on the budget separately. Both houses must approve the same version of the budget, which takes effect at the beginning of 2016. Executive Council often has to revise each of the three annual budgets of the triennium based on changing income and expenses.– The Rev.

Scotland pull off unbelievable comeback to win historic first ever Sevens title

first_imgMonday May 23, 2016 Scotland pull off unbelievable comeback to win historic first ever Sevens title Scotland came from behind to win a thrilling London Sevens Cup Final against South Africa, claiming their first ever World Rugby Sevens Series title. With just a minute left in the match, Scotland trailed 26-15 but miraculously score twice to win 27-26. Fiji meanwhile claimed the overall Series title by qualifying for the quarter finals earlier in the day. They had an unassailable lead, despite South Africa being hot on their heels.Scotland had beaten hosts England and defending London Sevens champions the USA to reach their first ever final, and looked as though they had no chance after Springbok Sevens flyer Rosko Specman scored his second try of the final to give South Africa the lead.But the Scots, whose coach called for them to be brave at halftime, kept fighting and produced a sensational victory, sending the few fans that stuck around at Twickenham to watch into raptures.“I’m ecstatic, it hasn’t really sunk in at the moment,” said Scott Wight afterwards.“We were a long way behind in the final but the boys stuck on task and we managed to get over the line at the end. It took a massive amount of effort and I’m honoured to say I’m captain of this side.”Fiji meanwhile ended in fourth position as the USA claimed third place with a 26-19 win.In Olympic year, this series has delivered some shocks, with there being as many as six different winners on the eleven legs of play. Fiji, New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa, Kenya and Scotland have all won titles, and when you consider that the Olympic event will be like just another series leg, you never know who might be taking Gold, and keeping it for at least another four years.Fiji ended the series in first place on 181 points, followed by South Africa on 171 and New Zealand on 158.

Indiana Dairy Delivers Milk for Former Ethanol Driver Hunter-Reay

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Dairy Delivers Milk for Former Ethanol Driver Hunter-Reay Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – May 26, 2014 SHARE Indiana Dairy Delivers Milk for Former Ethanol Driver Hunter-Reay Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleDon’t Plant, Don’t Eat, Don’t ServeNext articleIndiana Planting Progress Roars Along Andy Eubank Indy milk winnerThe Indianapolis 500 and Indianapolis Motor Speedway are steeped in tradition that means so much to drivers and fans alike. Although there has been plenty of tinkering with qualifications in recent years, the traditions fans love remain rock solid. One of those is the traditional bottle of milk for the winner of the race which dates back to 1933 and became a permanent fixture in 1956.This year Ryan Hunter-Reay accepted the prize from Ken Hoeing, a Rush County dairy farmer and head milkman. It was the prize Hunter-Reay had been dreaming a lifetime about and first pursued in 2008 when he was named the 500 Rookie of the Year driving for another group of farmers in the Ethanol sponsored car.Deb Osza at American Dairy Association, Indiana says the tradition is great publicity for the state’s dairy farmers.“We take it very seriously to nurture the drink of milk tradition at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, so we’re so proud to have that opportunity to really shine a spotlight on drinking milk at an event like this huge greatest spectacle in racing where maybe some of the folks who are fans of racing wouldn’t think about milk. But we get a chance to talk about not only milk and its nutrition but the dairy farmers who produce it, and people learn we have 1,200 dairy farmers right here in the state of Indiana. A lot of people don’t know that.”There is another important event for Indiana dairy in the month of May.“One of the other biggest things we do is to provide chocolate milk at the end of the Mini Indy, which is one of the biggest half marathons in the country,” Osza told HAT. “We distribute over 10,000 pints of chocolate milk at that event which takes place a little bit earlier in the month but gets us in the mood to be delivering milk in victory circle on race day.”Chocolate milk has been proven to be an excellent recovery drink and at a Purdue sports workout facility you will find chocolate milk for the athletes but no other famous sports drinks.“And we’re finding that more and more colleges and universities are switching to chocolate milk,” she added, “discovering it as a fine refueling beverage after workouts. It’s great for the athletes and great for our dairy farmers.”last_img read more
