first_img State’s coastal casinos make heavy losses from betting on football amid across-the-board decline in revenue Email Address Mississippi sports betting revenue plummets in October Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Mississippi’s sports betting market fell back to earth with a bump after a stellar showing in September, with October revenue declining sharply.Having posted revenue of $5.5m the previous month, revenue for October fell to $1.2m, due in part to the state’s coastal casinos losing heavily on football betting.Customers wagered $32.8m over the month, which represented a slight month-on-month increase in handle.The coastal casinos lost $600,798 from betting on football in October, having generated revenue of $2.9m from the sport in the previous month. Coupled with declines in revenue for the northern and central casinos, the state’s sports betting operators posted a total loss of $330,877 from the sport, which had accounted for 72% of total market revenue in September.Due to the heavy losses from football betting, Mississippi’s coastal casinos went from being the main source of revenue in the market to the smallest. Revenue from betting across all sports fell to $214,454 for the region, with growth in basketball revenue ($289,949) and baseball ($166,766) offset by the losses from football betting and a decline in revenue from parlay betting, which fell from $981,065 in September to $276,182.This allowed the state’s northern casinos to take over as the largest source of sports betting revenue. However, the monthly total of $547,047 was still down 51% month-on-month, again due to declines in revenue from betting on football and parlay wagering, with customers wagering $7.7m in the region. The state’s central sportsbooks generated revenue of $416,843, an 11% month-on-month fall, on a handle of $3.4m.

THE LOCATIONThe plot is located in the old popular neighbourhood of « Amidonniers », between the Garonne and the Canal du Midi. This parcel of land is mainly occupied by a shed, the last element of a former foundry now converted into houses. The shed is a mixture of masonry columns and a workshop like facade facing the street, both of which combine to support a sloping steel roof framework. The industrial building is much damaged.

The expectations of each were clearly stated at the beginning of the work programme. The Martel family integrated very well with the need to commit strongly to the project and actively took part in the conception process.

Building a «house-tool» dedicated to the functioning and quality of life, with no formal a priori. The interactive work when planning the project incorporating the needs and desires of the client body allowed a hierarchizing of priorities:- A living space that accommodates residents while preserving their independence- Multiple and various personal spaces and common spaces- Specific spaces and adjustable spaces allowing undefined usages- A peaceful yet active home to receive grownup children and host friendsSave this picture!© Philippe RuaultIDENTITYThe house blends into its environment; it reveals itself from the inside.

UN Human Rights Council turns special rapporteur on free expression into prosecutor

first_img Organisation Reporters Without Borders condemns the change to the mandate of the special rapporteur on the protection of the right to freedom of expression that was made by the United Nations Human Rights Council. The rapporteur is now supposed to investigate abuses of the right of freedom of expression. March 31, 2008 – Updated on January 25, 2016 UN Human Rights Council turns special rapporteur on free expression into prosecutor News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the change to the mandate of the special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression that was made by the United Nations Human Rights Council at the end of its seventh session on 28 March. The rapporteur is now supposed to investigate abuses of the right of freedom of expression.“As we have been repeating for the nearly two years since its creation, the UN Human Rights Council is far from being up to the job it has been given,” the press freedom organisation said. “The change to the mandate of the special rapporteur on free expression is dramatic. It turns someone who is supposed to defend freedom of opinion into a prosecutor whose job is to go after those who abuse this freedom.“There are other mechanisms for condemning racist attacks or defamation by the media. It is not the rapporteur on free expression’s job to do this. It is like asking the rapporteur on freedom of religion to investigate human rights abuses committed in the name of religion. Such reasoning is absurd.“The growing influence of Organisation of the Islamic Conference member states within the Human Rights Council is disturbing. All of the council’s decisions are nowadays determined by the interests of the Muslim countries or powerful states such as China or Russia that know how to surround themselves with allies. The UN secretary-general should intervene as quickly as possible.”“The mandates of the special rapporteurs on Cuba and Belarus, two of the world’s worst press freedom predators, were not renewed in May 2007,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “Last week it was Democratic Republic of Congo’s turn to get rid of its special human rights rapporteur. It is deplorable that these countries, in which serious human rights violations are committed every day, are no longer subject to closing monitoring and criticism by the UN.”The change to the special rapporteur on free expression’s mandate was approved by 32 of the UN Human Rights Council’s 47 member states. Those that opposed the change included EU member states, Canada, Switzerland and some Latin American countries. Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more

Sessions court denied bail to all of them on September 11 and later four of the accused namely Zaid Vilatra, Abdel Parihar, Samuel Miranda and Dipesh Sawant moved High Court. Rhea and her brother Showik moved the High Court later. Zaid Vilatra’s bail application came up for hearing before Justice GS Kulkarni (who was sitting in for Justice Revati Dere) on September 29 and Advocate Taraq Sayed appeared on his behalf as well. Yesterday, Advocate Taraq Sayed sought permission from Justice Revati Dere to withdraw the petition challenging the Bandra based hotelier’s detention by the NCB stating that the contentions raised in Vilatra’s application on points of law are already covered in the bail hearing before Justice Kotwal. Permission to withdraw the application was granted.NCB’s Case Against The AccusedThe most significant assertion by the NCB during the entire hearing has been that when a person fails to disclose the fact of drug consumption by another person, it amounts to harbouring an offender under Section 27A of the NDPS Act.Appearing on behalf of the central agency, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh countered the submissions made by counsels for Rhea and other co-accused, Advocates Taraq Sayed and Satish Manshinde, that the accused cannot be said to have ‘harboured’ Sushant as he was living in his own apartment and he was under no apprehension of arrest at any point of time. He submitted -“If somebody known to me is consuming drugs and I know that consuming drugs is illegal, I am still not telling this to anyone, not disclosing it to police then it can be brought under the definition of ‘harbouring'(under Sec 27A)”.Justice Kotwal asked “You are saying non-disclosure is giving shelter?”In reply, ASG said “The definition says ‘assistance by any means'”, referring to the definition of harbouring given under Section 52A of the Indian Penal Code.Section 27A deals with “Punishment for financing illicit traffic and harbouring offenders. Whoever indulges in financing, directly or indirectly, any of the activities specified in sub-clauses…”In conclusion, ASG Singh submitted-“Considering the brutality of the case & overall circumstances of cases, drug abuse has to be controlled in the country, in all sectors- college, school, Bollywood, wherever it is. Our leaders always say the country is dependent on youngsters. Some people, who are supposed to be role models, feel that there is nothing wrong in drug use. If I as a celebrity, who is a role model for college students, consume drugs, what would be the future of the country?”Arguing that the NCB’s case was extremely weak, Advocate Taraq Sayed had argued-“NCB is a premier investigation agency. They have better things to do than arrest people with a few grams of charas or ganja. 19 college students have been arrested and NCB is projecting as if a drug cartel has been busted. They (NCB) are only playing with the sections. There are no specific allegations to show that I am part of a big drug syndicate.Though 19 people have been arrested, the NCB has not recovered even 100 grams of ganja from them”, Adv Taraq said sarcastically.

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel says ‘our souls are burdened’ over city’s latest deadly weekend

first_imgJoshua Lott/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and the city’s police superintendent made an emotional plea for help in holding repeat gun offenders accountable after a deadly weekend in the Illinois city.“We have a heavy heart,” Emanuel said at a news conference Monday. “Our souls are burdened. What happened this weekend did not happen in every neighborhood of Chicago but it is unacceptable in every neighborhood of Chicago. We are a better city.”There were 12 people killed in shootings and at least 54 others injured this weekend, according to the latest police figures obtained by ABC station WLS.While shootings in many cities, including Chicago, tend to spike in the summer amid higher temperatures, Emanuel said that the temptation to place the blame there is misguided.“You can talk about the weather but the weather didn’t pull the trigger,” Emanuel said, making the same point about questions of jobs and unemployment.“There are too many guns on the street, too many people with criminal records on the street, and there is a shortage of values about what is acceptable,” he said.He said what needs to be changes is “the culture that condones rather than condemns.”“All of us know that this is not Chicago — what we saw — therefore all of us who love this city and call it home have a responsibility to heal our neighborhoods,” he said.Chicago Police Department superintendent Eddie Johnson echoed those ideas, noting that while police “have really good leads on quite a few” of the suspects, there have been no arrests in connection to the shootings, which were largely contained in four districts in the South and West sides of the city.“It is the same people who are pulling the triggers in some of these communities,” Johnson said at the press conference. “This isn’t a widespread issue among citizens of the city. This is a small subset of individuals who think they can play by their own rules because they continue to get a slap on the wrist when we arrest them.”“The city isn’t on fire,” Johnson said. “We just have to do what we have to do in those challenged areas to make it better.”“What we saw this weekend, it just it rips at everything that I believe in because I know, as a city and as a neighborhood… we can do better,” Johnson said.“We need everyone to come to the table with less talk and more action,” Johnson said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
