Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Casino Cosmopol has lodged an appeal against a fine issued by Swedish regulator Lotteriinspektionen for failing to comply with national licence requirements for money laundering and terrorist financing. Last month, Svenska Spel’s bricks-and-mortar gaming business was fined SEK8m (£700,500/€777,900/$885,800) after the regulator found evidence of a number of serious and systematic deficiencies.At the time, the Lotteriinspektion said that Casino Cosmopol may have been used for money laundering activities. However, Casino Cosmopol has now appealed the ruling, saying it was unfair to issue a set penalty when there are currently no clear regulations or guidance from the regulator.The company argued that a week after the initial decision, it submitted a plan of action to address both the short- and long-term concerns highlighted by the Lotteriinspektionen’s investigation.“In the absence of clear regulations and guidance from the Lotteriinspektionen, it can not be considered correct to decide on a penalty fee,” Per Jaldung, president of Casino Cosmopol, said.“We have appealed the Lotteriinspektionen’s decision mainly because we consider that in this situation it is not proportional to issue a penalty,” Jadlung explained. “Sanctions shall only be used when other methods such as imposing new licence conditions upon us are sufficient.”During its investigation, the regulator highlighted a series of apparent failings by Casino Cosmopol across a period of seven months from January 1 to July 31, 2017.These incidents included a player spending SEK99,000 (£8,633/$10,951/€9,622) playing slots in a single evening, with the casino failing to record these transactions. It was only able to ascertain the sum spent after reviewing security camera footage.The regulator also highlighted several cases of insufficient customer knowledge, including a failure to identify customers who were losing significant amounts of money, failing to take measures to help a particular customer who had lost SEK2.835m since 2016.However in its appeal Casino Cosmopol said the regulator has not issued clear rules or guidance in place to deal with matters raised in the investigation. The operator also noted that the Lotteriinspektion has been monitoring its activities since its first casino opened in 2005 and has such been aware of its procedures for some time, without raising concerns previously.Jaldung added: “In all the years we have operated our four casinos, we beleived we were following money laundering legislation.“We have staff who deal with these matters on a daily basis. We have clear instructions and train all staff so they know how to act,” he continued. “All guests must register before entering the casinos and the visits are recorded. We monitor, review and report suspicious transactions to our finance department.”Casino Cosmopol lodged its appeal on December 17, but the Lotteriinspektionen is yet to respond.Sweden will launch its re-regulated market on January 1, 2019, and has awarded a number of licences to various operators ahead of this date. Svenska Spel has been approved to offer both online casino and sports betting in the new-look market.Image: Per-Olof Forsberg AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 18th December 2018 | By contenteditor Casino & games Casino Cosmopol appeals money laundering fine in Sweden Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Svenska Spel subsidiary was fined SEK8m last month for breaching licence requirements
Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Switzerland’s gambling regulator the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission (ESBK) and Inter-Cantonal Lotteries and Betting Commission (Comlot) have each published lists of companies not permitted to operate in the country.The launch of the blacklists follows the implementation of the country’s Federal Act on Real-Money Gaming (Geldspielgesetz), which also permits Swiss land-based casino to launch online casino games. To date two casinos, Grand Casino Luzern and Grand Casino Baden, have launched offerings.Article 86 of the Geldspielgesetz gives the ESBK and Comlot the power to have internet service providers block access to platforms that are accessible in Switzerland but not licensed, using a domain name server (DNS) lock.Comlot’s blacklist has launched with 65 domains, including multiple sites operated by a single company, with 39 on the ESBK list. However, there is a lot of crossover, with several domains appearing on both lists.Among the high-profile operators to have sites blacklisted are bet365 – which appears on both the lists alongside Interwetten and Pinnacle – Betclic Everest Group and Unibet. A number of German language brands are blacklisted by Comlot including my bet, XTiP and Cashpoint.Esports betting operators such as Unikrn and GG.bet have also been blocked by Swiss internet service providers.In June, Comlot said that it expected at least two sites to be blacklisted.The language in the Geldspielgesetz that granted ESBK and Comlot the power to have access to unlicensed sites blocked prompted huge debate, ultimately resulting in a national referendum on the gambling legislation.Despite opponents arguing that site-blocking measures amounted to censorship, a significant majority of the public backed the measure, paving the way for the act to come into force from 1 January this year.

The old Seegmuller warehouse, built in 1932 (architect : Gustav Umbdenstock), has been used as a grain storage for years. It is part of a huge and remarkable industrial ensemble of the Strasbourg’s port area : La Presqu’île Malraux.Save this picture!Courtesy of Heintz-Kehr architectsThis 600 meters long artificial dock, just next to Strasbourg’s city centre, is the meeting point, the missing link between the southern districts and the University ones at north, also located on the main axis (east-west) connecting France to Germany. The longitudinal island is composed of a 50 meters central tower and two side low-rise buildings. The Architecture and Urbanism Office Heintz-Kehr & partners won in december 2010, with a team of investors and operators, the competition on the whole Malraux district, planning 3 buildings (including a 110m high tower) and the urban planning of ground and water.Save this picture!DetailFrom the very first ideas of this competition, the architects wished to preserve the industrial patrimony, to demonstrate to the Strasbourg’s inhabitants and politics that it’s possible to achieve modernity with pieces of the industrial memory. The initial use of the existing building, with its strong reinforced concrete (4.50m x 4.50m grid oversized for a potential overload of 2000kg/m²) allowed to replace the old tile roof by a metallic 3-storeys-high superstructure. Steel was a choice of lightness and aesthetics.Save this picture!Courtesy of Heintz-Kehr architectsThis metallic exoskeleton, inspired by the port rhetoric, reinterprets in a contemporary way the grid and features of the existing building. In an almost Mies-like sobriety and refinement, the new part just has skin (of glass) and bones (of steel). The huge cantilever (15m) on the western facade, structured by its 6 truss beams (vierendeel) – 30m long and 9m high – shelters the central piazza of the area and the new urban « pulsar » that it figures.Save this picture!Courtesy of Heintz-Kehr architectsE la nave va… Aquatics reflects underneath the cantilever mixing with the ballet of moving car reflectors from the surrounding banks. If the oversizing of the existing concrete structure eased the loads transfer, the seismic upgrade to compliance of the whole building called for a micro-chirurgy on the structure : widening of expansion joints, creation of seismic shear walls (7mx1m, 5-storeys height), etc…Save this picture!SectionThe underpinning fondation upgrade was an experimental première in Europe : 2m wide and 14m deep jet-grouting columns in which were stucked 4 petroleum metallic tube filled with concrete. Structure-related costs represent as much as 50% of the global construction cost (usually it is around 30-35%). Still, the global cost of the project is very interesting, especially for a city centre construction (1200€/m²).Save this picture!Courtesy of Heintz-Kehr architectsThe architects proposed a large programmatic mix in the same building. Which means tackling conflicting regulations between public programs (restaurants, higher education, exhibition areas …), housing, offices… To preserve an outdoor coherence and an indoor optimal functionnality.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanOn ground floor, where large bricks fillings were replaced with huge glass panels and large heights glass doors (3.70m), the existing building hosts restaurants, and their terraces show the former altimetry docks, a base for the new recomposition. The old Tourette was raised by a floor with a panoramic 360 ° view of the Vosges and the Black Forest Mountains that enclose the Alsatian plain.Save this picture!Courtesy of Heintz-Kehr architectsOther parts of the original warehouse also hosts the Fabrique du Numérique ( 2000m space created by the City of Strasbourg, for the development of digital cultures, FabLab , etc …) , a school of journalism and communication , several start-ups in the field of information technology, digital , design and communications , and other co-working office spaces. The new part (metallic exoskeleton) is itself made up of 67 homes (with high environmental performances), from studio to 4 bedrooms flats. All of these are made of steel structure which is exceptional considering the acoustic issues of such materials.Save this picture!SectionOn the northern facade, fire escapes are externalized to optimize interior surfaces, but also to provide an architectural identity – quoting the tribunes of El Lissitzky and cantilevers of Adalberto Libera – refusing , because of the site configuration , the dichotomy between noble and technical facade.

Tampa, Fla. — Students for a Democratic Society Tampa hosted a “Dump Trump” rally on Feb. 12 in front of the University of South Florida Sun Dome, where Donald Trump was given permission to host a sold-out rally promoting his racist political message.Hundreds of USF students organized en masse to let Trump know his racist, misogynistic and anti-LGBTQ message was not welcome on the USF campus. The organizers held signs at the entrance of the Sun Dome and organized chants such as “Dump Trump!” “Hey hey! Ho ho! Donald Trump has got to go!” and “No more wars! No more hate! Donald Trump get out of our state!”Various speeches were also given by groups, including Tampa Bay SDS, the Committee to Stop FBI repression, the Teamsters union and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization.Activist and Tampa Bay SDS member Taina Pantoja, who spoke at the rally, stated, “We need to stand up against Donald Trump and other racist politicians’ capitalist agenda; we need to stand up against white supremacy and defend affirmative action!” Homam Nasser of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression followed this sentiment, stating that “the rally was important to countering right-wing populism on our campus, which seeks to undermine progressive and popular demands. I attended this rally because, like anyone else, I did not want USF complicity in promoting and propagating hate and violence against oppressed peoples to go unchallenged.”Tampa Bay SDS extended the anti-racist message of the protest to all racist politicians, not just Donald Trump. This included former Florida Sen. C.W. Bill Young, whom the campus ROTC building is named after. Young was an active member of the Johns Committee, which actively persecuted homosexual students across Florida in the 1960s, including at USF, and targeted Civil Rights activists and other “subversives” who might be sympathetic to communism.Tampa SDS activist Jack Ling spoke about this point directly: “While we protest the monstrous queer-phobia of Trump and his supporters, let us also recognize that atrocities were committed against LGBTQAI+ students and faculty on this campus that we will never be able to correct so long as a building, which university officials have regarded as the core of the university moving forward, enshrines a legacy of hatred and violence against queers on campus.” The group is currently leading a campaign to change the name of the ROTC building.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This case must be dropped, RSF said. From left to right: Ahmet Nesin, Şebnem Korur Fincancı, Erol Önderoğlu News TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Önderoğlu and two co-defendants, human right defender Şebnem Korur Fincancı and the writer and journalist Ahmet Nesin, had in principle been acquitted on this and the two other charges ¬– “praising a crime or criminal” and “condoning a crime” – that were brought against them because each symbolically edited the newspaper Özgür Gündem (Free Agenda) for a day in 2016 as a part of press freedom campaign after it was shut down in August of that year.Unlike the court that acquitted them in July 2019, the appeal court did not accept the argument that their editorial roles were purely symbolic. In a decision reached on 20 October and issued two days ago, the appeal court not only quashed the acquittal but also criticized the original court’s decision to handle their cases separately from that of Özgür Gündem editor in chief, Inan Kizilkaya, who was the subject of ten parallel charges over articles published before its closure.“Defending press freedom cannot be treated as a crime in a country that respects basic rights,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Our Turkey representative, Erol Önderoğlu, already spent ten days in prison and was subjected to judicial proceedings and a trial that were very long simply for defending media pluralism in Turkey. It is unbearable to think that this baseless judicial persecution could resume for him and his co-defendants. The Turkish justice system would do well to drop this case at once.”Like Fincancı and Nesin, Önderoğlu is facing the possibility of up to 14 and a half years in prison under Terrorism Law 3712 and the penal code. During their original trial, it was made clear to the court that they had supported the campaign symbolically in the name of media pluralism, which is in greater danger than ever in Turkey.“I participated in this solidarity campaign because I believe a democratic society is impossible if the media cannot express themselves without censorship and persecution,” Önderoğlu told the court on 15 April 2019. “It is not these charges hanging over our heads like a permanent threat that worry us. It is the fate of our society in its entirety in the face of the erosion of the sense of justice that binds us together.”Önderoğlu, Fincancı and Nesin will be retried by an Istanbul court of assizes on February 3rd, and their case could be linked with that of Özgür Gündem’s editor in chief.Along with 16 activists, Önderoğlu was also prosecuted for expressing solidarity in January 2016 with hundreds of university academics who had signed a peace petition. He was definitively acquitted on this charge when a constitutional court ruled in favour of the academics in September 2019.Turkey is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

February 10, 2017 Find out more ParaguayAmericas Receive email alerts Beaten and burned with cigarettes by his abductors, Galeano was taken to the northeastern town of San Juan Caballero. There they forced him to appear on the streets and then take a room in the Hotel Dina Tony with a prostitute. The next night they took him across the border and released him in the Brazilian town of Campo Grande with the warning: “If you return to Paraguay, you are dead.”Fearing for the safety of his children, Galeano complied and did not contact his family. “It seemed that they were aware of all of my movements and all of my family’s movements, and that they were capable of doing a great deal of harm,” Galeano told the two journalists,Shortly before his disappearance, Galeano had covered the seizure of a consignment of heavy weapons and cocaine for his radio station. The seizure had been carried out in the presence of district police chief Osvaldo Nuñez and ruling Colorado party legislator Magdaleno Silva, who are both alleged to have links with Cabeza Branca boss Luiz Carlos da Rocha. None of these three men was ever questioned about Galeano’s disappearance.After it was reported that Galeano had resurfaced, Silva announced that he would bring a lawsuit against the Union of Paraguayan Journalists (SPP) for accusing him of being involved in Galeano’s disappearance. to go further July 16, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio journalist Enrique Galeano reappears alive 17 months after being abducted Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporter killed in ambush after police protection withdrawn February 14, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Paraguay Brazilian journalist murdered at home in Paraguay Reporters Without Borders hails the news that Enrique Galeano of Radio Azotey, who disappeared on 4 February 2006, is alive and has been in hiding all this time in the Brazilian city of São Paulo. He told two journalists with the Última Hora daily that he went into hiding after being kidnapped and threatened by a criminal gang operating across the border between Paraguay and Brazil. News RSF_en News News Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable News ParaguayAmericas Reporters Without Borders said it was greatly relieved by the news that Enrique Galeano of Radio Azotey has reappeared alive 17 months after he went missing on 4 February 2006 in the central department of Concepción, where he lived and worked. The Paraguayan press reported on 15 July that he resurfaced in the Brazilian city of São Paulo, where he went into hiding after being threatened by gangsters. He is now in Uruguay, where he has requested political asylum, and hopes that his wife and four children, who had fled from Concepción to the Uruguayan capital of Asunción, will be able to join him there.“Galeano has reappeared safe and sound long after being given up for dead because of the dangers of his investigative reporting on drug trafficking in the region just before his disappearance,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is very rare for a missing journalist to resurface and we share the joy of his wife, Bernardina Quintana, and their four children.”The press freedom organisation added: “Galeano is afraid to return to Paraguay. If required, the police must keep their word and give him and his family all the security guarantees they need. In the meantime, the investigation into his disappearance must establish what happened and those involved must be brought to justice.”The daily ABC reported that Galeano got in touch with one of his acquaintances by email at the beginning of July from his hideout in Saõ Paulo. The contact put him in touch with journalists Oscar Cáceres and Andrés Colmán Gutiérrez of Última Hora. In an account published on 15 July, the two said they went to Saõ Paulo on 11 July and met there with Galeano, who told them what had happened to him.Galeano said he was working in Azotey, in Concepción, on the afternoon of 4 February 2006 and called his wife at their home in Yby Yaú, 35 km away, to say he would be home by nightfall. On his way home, two men in a white vehicle forced him to stop and kidnapped him. They spoke Portuguese, which made Galeano suspect they could be working for “Cabeza Branca” (“White Head”), a Brazilian crime organisation operating in the border area. He said they threatened the eldest of his four children: “They told me, ‘You are going to do everything we tell you or we will make a phone call and your son Pedro will be killed a second later’.” October 20, 2014 Find out more

They were encouraged to learn from one of them – Esther. Looking at her life, the church sees how she was one who was willing to step forward in dangerous times. Like Esther, will one be ready to trust God â€“ even in challenging situations?While preparing this wonderful musical, LAC singers have been learning lyrics that echo the story of Esther. One of the songs say â€œWhen youâ€™re worried, when you are afraid, remember, you will be blessed, if you remember â€“ God is in control.â€ These lyrics explain that God has a plan for everyone, even while one is sleeping! He has every detail in hand and has given each one the gift of time. He has given everyone The Present (another song that will be sung in the musical). The words go like this: â€œthe present â€“ each day, each hour, each moment. What will we do with the present? â€œOur singers have dedicated many hours to rehearsals. They have had to let go of tennis, baseball, lacrosse practice â€“ even parties. They have chosen to serve God through music and are having great fun in the process. When they experience an â€œOhhhâ€ moment we know they get it, especially when they say, “We donâ€™t need to worry because God is in control of the futureâ€ …how great is that?”Perhaps, God has given them these insights for such a time as this. Perhaps, the time is right for a friend or a loved one to understand Godâ€™s love for them. Perhaps, it could happen while they watch and listen to these young people present the story of Estherâ€™s faith.Join Lake Avenue Church next Sunday, May 20 at 4 pm in the Chapel. The fruit of these students’ hard work will bring a smile to everyone’s heart. Attendees will enjoy seeing and hearing how God can use them to remind everyone of Godâ€™s faithfulness to each one.

Biogeochemical responses to nutrient, moisture and temperature manipulations of soil from Signy Island, South Orkney Islands in the Maritime Antarctic
We have investigated how the microbially-driven processes of carbon (C) mineralization (respiration) and nitrogen (N) mineralization/immobilization in a soil from the northern Maritime Antarctic respond to differences in water availability (20% and 80% water-holding capacity) and temperature (5°C and 15°C) in the presence and absence of different organic substrates (2 mg C as either glucose, glycine or tryptone soy broth (TSB) powder (a complex microbial growth medium)) in a controlled laboratory experiment over 175 days. Soil respiration and N mineralization/immobilization in the presence of a C-rich substrate (glucose) increased with increases in water and temperature. These factors were influential individually and had an additive effect when applied together. For the N-rich substrates (glycine and TSB), microbial responses to increased water or temperature alone were weak or not significant, but these factors interacted to give significantly positive increases when applied together. These data indicate that under the expected changes in environmental conditions in the Maritime Antarctic, where temperature and the availability of water and organic substrates will probably increase, soil microbial activity will lead to more rapid C and N cycling and have a positive feedback on these biogeochemical processes, particularly where or when these factors increase concurrently.
