Germany submits State Treaty to European Commission

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance Germany submits State Treaty to European Commission 3rd May 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germanycenter_img Germany has notified the European Commission of its third amended State Treaty on Gambling as it seeks approval to bring it into law.Already ratified by the Minister-Presidents of Germany’s 16 federal states, the Treaty sets out proposals to allow operators to apply for sports betting licences in the market, with Schleswig-Holstein allowed to run its own liberal regulatory regime.Licences are due to come into force from January 1, 2020 and run until June 30, 2021, effectively acting as a placeholder, with a view to a complete overhaul of national gambling regulations by 2021.Should the European Commission (EC) grant its approval to the Treaty, Germany could begin the licensing process later this year. The EC will confirm its decision following the expiry of the three-month standstill period set aside for member states to review the legislation in late July.Key features of the Treaty include the removal of a 20-licence limit in order to help open up the market, while operators that do secure a licence will have to pay tax at a rate of 5% of their turnover.As before, sports betting is the only vertical permitted, but in-play wagering is prohibited. Consumers will only be allowed to spend a maximum of €1,000 (£857/$1,120) on betting each month.In addition, Schleswig-Holstein will be permitted to continue with its own liberal regulatory model until 2021. First introduced in 2011, the state has does not impose any restrictions on product verticals, and sets a 20% gross revenue tax.Steps towards renewing licences issued in 2012 began in February, with a view to having these run until June 30, 2021. The state will effectively act as a testing ground for a more liberal model, which from 2021 could be rolled out across the rest of the country.However, even if the European Commission gives its approval to the Treaty, there is still some way to go.The transitional law is due to pass and come into law in Schleswig-Holstein this month, while June will see the Minister-President Conference take place in Berlin.The licensing process for sports betting, handled by Hesse, is scheduled to launch after the summer and, by the end of the year, it is expected that all state parliaments will formally ratify the State Treaty. This will allow the Treaty to come into force in January 2020, when betting licences will begin to be issued.Wulf Hambach, Stefan Bolay and Stefanie Fuchs of leading German law firm Hambach & Hambach spoke to iGamingBusiness.com about this process and what needs to happen to ensure a satisfactory conclusion for all stakeholders. Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Germany has notified the European Commission (EC) of its third amended State Treaty on Gambling as it seeks approval to bring it into law. The Treaty would pave the way for operators to apply for sports betting licences in the country’s market.

King Residence / John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects

first_img “COPY” Projects Save this picture!© Benny Chan+ 27 Share Houses Photographs:  Benny ChanText description provided by the architects. The King Residence is a 4,300 square foot single family residence located in the Sunset Park section of Santa Monica, a neighborhood originally developed to house workers from the World War II era McDonnell Douglas Airplane Factory. About one mile from the beach, the structure houses Matt and Erin King and their two children.Situated on a gently sloping, wedge-shaped corner lot, the design rejects the standard public front yard/private backyard typology, opting instead for a structure whose living spaces and bedrooms open onto a relatively large exterior patio/garden/entryway that faces the public streets and surrounding houses. While this arrangement puts much of the family’s communal and individual life on display, this is a positive feature for the Kings. The children delight in calling to their friends on the street, especially from their bedrooms and the large open-air “living room,” all on the second floor, while Matt and Erin enjoy an overall heightened sense of neighborliness – friends and neighbors (and even strangers) drop in at all times. The house’s blurring of public/private boundaries (beyond the typical indoor/outdoor kind) reinforces the sense of community that they embrace and encourage. Save this picture!© Benny ChanWhile the house’s formal design facilitates this more open relationship with the surrounding community, it also acknowledges that there is some tension between the public and private character of what, in the end, is this family’s home. Read in a more volumetric way, the house can be seen as a solid mass in which one corner has been carved away, revealing the house’s inner life and creating the main patio, around which the resulting “L” shape is organized. But the structure can also be seen as series of vertical and horizontal planes, and according to this interpretation, one can see that the house’s green and white cement board walls, inflected in towards the site, have a sheltering, privatizing quality. Similarly, the roof of the dining and “hangout” wing, angled down to follow the gentle slope of the site, anchors the structure and its inhabitants to the earth – and to each other. These formal qualities also help the house fit well into its surroundings. By responding to the street corner with a void, instead of a volume, and setting the house towards the rear of the site, the house does not crowd the neighborhood – it exudes a sense of politeness, of generosity. This quality is reinforced by its composition of overlapping planes and layers, which break up its mass and project a sense of permeability; from down the street, one can even see straight through the house. These intentions carry through to the strategies for cladding the house, the best example being the way in which the two-toned cement board pattern, echoing the character of leaves on nearby trees, helps to dematerialize the structure. The wood screens have a similar effect. Save this picture!© Benny ChanBoth inside and outside, the house’s design manages to be both serious as well as casual – to create the conditions for a flexible, open, communally-oriented lifestyle, while at the same time employing a refined palette of materials and details. The generous use of natural light activates the house and creates excellent lighting for the family’s art collection. A number of sustainable features are also incorporated. For the Kings, the house functions perfectly for their individual and collective lifestyles, and embodies the values in which they believe.Project gallerySee allShow lessTen Days for Oppositional ArchitectureArticlesYeosu Expo 2012 / Nicoletti AssociatiArticles Share Architects: John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/40011/king-residence-john-friedman-alice-kimm-architects Clipboard King Residence / John Friedman Alice Kimm ArchitectsSave this projectSaveKing Residence / John Friedman Alice Kimm Architectscenter_img Area:  316 m² Photographs CopyHouses•Santa Monica, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/40011/king-residence-john-friedman-alice-kimm-architects Clipboard United States “COPY” King Residence / John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects CopyAbout this officeJohn Friedman Alice Kimm ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSanta MonicaHousesUnited StatesPublished on November 08, 2009Cite: “King Residence / John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects” 08 Nov 2009.

An exterior corridor that is the porch on the south facade and an interior corridor that mirrors and accompanies the porch of the glass facade facing north. This solution allows for a fluid distribution that stimulates the dynamics of the house by providing a distribution through the spaces bathed in the sun and enjoying the generous views.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra – FG+ SGThe program takes place along this central core, ensuring that all divisions gain equally from the solution created, thus standardizing the balance between sun, views, privacy and leisure. The large social areas, the kitchen and the bedrooms, take advantage of this direct relationship between facades. The house develops with a progressive character that evolves from technical and functional areas to social and private areas.Outside, the slope of the blades maximizes the luminosity in the corridors and the concrete becomes the prominent material with horizontal lines that contrast with the verticality of the exposed wood elements that punctuate the facades.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra – FG+ SGThe project assumes a simple plasticity, richness of details and striking details.

Manco & Manco Owners’ Sentencings Postponed to March

first_imgCharles “Chuck” Bangle, owner of Manco & Manco Pizza, pleaded guilty in July to a pair of tax-evasion charges, 11 days before he was scheduled to go to trial on a 30-count indictment.The owners of the Manco & Manco pizza chain won’t be sentenced until the new year, as their attorneys work to provide to the court volumes of information that will be used to help determine their sentences.The sentencings for Charles and Mary Bangle have already been postponed once. The couple was originally scheduled to be sentenced in October, but those hearings were rescheduled to Wednesday, Dec. 9 to give their attorneys more time to gather documents for pre-sentencing reports. Now, the couple is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday, March 18, 2016.Speaking on behalf of his client, Mary Bangle, attorney Rocco C. Cipparone Jr. of Haddon Heights said in an email, “the sentencing was postponed in order to allow more time for thorough preparation for sentencing.”Pre-sentencing reports are documents prepared by the court that provide background on defendants and offer the sentencing judge some guidance in determining punishment.Given the complexity of the tax case against the Bangles, “it’s not unusual that this happens,” Cipparone said previously.“There are a lot of documents we have to exchange” between attorneys, he said.Charles Bangle is represented by attorney Vincent P. Sarubbi of Haddonfield.The Bangles, both of Somers Point, admitted in July to hiding hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits from their cash-only business to avoid paying income taxes, and then lying to IRS agents investigating their crimes.Charles Bangle, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of income tax evasion, and one count of structuring financial transactions to avoid reporting requirements. Structuring is an illegal process through which a pattern of cash deposits are made in amounts of less than $10,000 to avoid IRS reporting requirements.Mary Bangle, 54, pleaded guilty to knowingly making false statements to IRS special agents. She is likely to receive probation, according to Cipparone.In exchange for their guilty pleas, federal prosecutors agreed to seek the dismissal of additional charges contained in a 30-count indictment issued against the couple in 2014.The Bangles’ guilty pleas came less than two weeks before they were to stand trial on charges that they hid from the IRS almost $1 million in cash earnings, which the government alleged the couple used for sometimes lavish personal expenses.Charles Bangle faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine for income-tax evasion; the structuring count caries a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fines, although he is expected to receive significantly less prison time because he has no prior criminal record.Mary Bangle faced a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.The couple will be sentenced before U.S. District Court Judge Robert B. Kugler in Camden.Manco & Manco has three locations on the Ocean City Boardwalk and another on the mainland in Somers Point. Anthony Mack and Vincent Manco founded the chain in 1956, and it was known as Mack & Manco until 2011, when the partnership between the two families ended. Charles Bangle, the son-in-law of former co-owners Frank and Kay Manco, bought a controlling interest in the business that year, and changed its name.Manco & Manco is a cash-only business that does not accept credit cards. The chain’s four locations earn a combined $4.5 million annually.last_img read more

Leblond looks for Contender re-entry through appeal

first_imgTeam Canada’s boxer Dave ‘Fast and Furious’ Leblond has appealed to the Jamaica Boxing Board of Control (JBBC) to have his defeat to Jamaican fighter Tsetsi ‘Lights Out’ Davis overruled.If successful, this would result in a rematch between the two for a spot in the next round of the competition.Leblond’s trainer, Patrice Trudeau, told The Gleaner that although he and Leblond are not upset that Davis won, they believe the judges made what he describes as an egregious ruling.”The judges made a choice and we’re OK with the decision, regardless of the fact that we think we won, it’s more about a state of mind than the actual facts,” Trudeau told The Gleaner: “We’re satisfied in what we came to do. You saw at the end of the fight how satisfied as a team we were. That’s really what the heart of it is. But if you’re asking me if Tsetsi Davis won the fight and outscored Dave Leblond, I’ll say no.”However, Trudeau said he would not go into the details of the grounds of the appeal, which was submitted to the JBBC on Wednesday afternoon.NO DETAILS”It’s not that I can’t go into the details, but I’m just not gonna go into the details with that because we took our time to write the reasons of the appeal and we forwarded the letter of the official appeal to the board on Wednesday. Things, sometimes, can go south when you really want them to go north, but we trust that the board can do an excellent job sorting out what we brought up. Our job was really to highlight the facts and what we saw that was actually there.”JBBC officials refused to speak about the issue, saying at the time that they had not reviewed the appeal as yet, but they believe it is unlikely that the decision will change.However, Contender promoter Mark Kenny said Leblond may actually have a case.”Under WBC (World Boxing Council) rules, egregious scoring may be grounds for an appeal,” he said.”The appeal is just basically for an extra scrutiny, and we’re fine with that, and we agree with it. Sometimes that’s good to show that the show takes itself very seriously. If the appeal turns round and sanctions result that are correct? That’s fine.”[email protected]last_img read more

Pride for Asian-American skaters as they take to Olympic ice

That led to some controversy when Bari Weiss, an op-ed writer for The New York Times, tweeted about the feat with the words, “Immigrants: They get the job done.” Nagasu was born in California, and the since-deleted tweet was criticized by some who said it touched on Asian-American concerns about continually being assumed to be foreigners.Even that has echoes in previous Olympics, as in 1998, when a headline after American Tara Lipinski won the gold medal read, “American beats out Kwan.” Kwan was born and raised in California.In this year’s games, much of the hoopla around possibly winning has focused on Nathan Chen in particular.The Salt Lake City, Utah, native, who predicted as a 10-year-old novice champion that he would be at the 2018 Olympics, has been showcased as an athlete to watch at these games because of his athleticism and multiple quadruple jumps. He is considered a front-runner in the individual men’s event, even though he got off to a rough start by finishing fourth in the men’s short program for the team skating event after an uncharacteristic fall during a triple axel.That Asian-Americans are being represented on the men’s side as well as the women’s is important, said Phil Yu, who writes about pop culture and other subjects on his Angry Asian Man blog.Chen’s overall presence and success “is a powerful statement for Asian-American men who have generally had this stereotype hang over them of being not athletic, not expressive,” he said.“To have someone like Nathan Chen excel, not only excel but blow all these other people out of the water, it’s a powerful thing,” Yu said.It certainly is for Yuki Horiko. Seeing someone Asian-American like him go after Olympic gold “gives me more confidence” for his own hopes, the 13-year-old said. GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer Mane scores hat trick as Liverpool routs Porto, 5-0 It’s a heady moment, especially because Asian-Americans as a minority group have long faced stereotypes of being more about books and brains than anything else.“I think it’s supercool and exciting,” said Mai Hoang Parmentier, 35, of Yakima, Washington, who got into watching skating when she saw Yamaguchi compete.“For me growing up you had the stereotype of oh, Asians are good at math or academia or art or music,” she said. “I just like the idea that my daughter can see that she doesn’t have to be pigeonholed, that she can actually be good at sports.”Ryan Morris, 28, of Berkeley, California, agreed. The skating fan planned on making sure his young nieces and nephew watched it with him.“They’re going to see in the most important sport in the Winter Olympics … people who look like them,” he said. “It’s a good feeling.”ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacsoncenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Detention center to add 400 beds for immigrants

The Mira Loma Detention Center will be expanded to hold 1,400 people. The facility is run by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. A change to the existing contract to add beds was signed in November and approved this month by the county Board of Supervisors. “We still don’t know definitively” when the expansion will take place, said Virginia Kice, a spokeswoman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The detainees there were moved elsewhere. The Los Angeles area also has seen a crackdown on illegal immigrants who have committed crimes.. However, civil-rights groups note that despite the extra beds, the Mira Loma facility still will not handle detainees with violent-crime convictions or those with serious health problems such as AIDS.

Donegal debt recovery boss used bogus documents to get mortgage

first_imgThe owner of a debt recovery business has admitted he used fraudulent documents to obtain a €71,000 mortgage for his family home.Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard that Donegal native Kevin Molloy (49) still lives in the home with his family, is paying off the mortgage and that the bank were not concerned about pursuing charges. Molloy, now of Dublin Road, Celbridge, Co Kildare pleaded guilty to three offences under the theft and fraud act committed on dates between December 2014 and August 2016, including dishonestly inducing Ulster Bank at Lower Baggot st., to issue a mortgage on April 4, 2016.Judge Melanie Greally adjourned the case to October and ordered that Molloy’s suitability for community service work be assessed. She remanded him on continuing bail.Detective Dominic McGrath told the court that the offences came to light in July 2016 when an official from the Bank of Ireland met with gardaí.Between December 2014 and February 2015 Molloy provided a number of documents to the bank as part of a mortgage application. These included a salary cert which was found to be signed off in the name of a Mr Lafferty for a company actually owned by a Mr Laverty.The bank’s officials were not satisfied with the accuracy of the documents and declined the mortgage.Garda investigations found later that Molloy had successfully applied in April 2016 to Ulster Bank for a mortgage and the bank had issued a mortgage of €71,900.To see the full story follow this link https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/courts/owner-of-debt-recovery-business-admits-using-fraudulent-documents-to-obtain-71000-mortgage-37084877.htmlDonegal debt recovery boss used bogus documents to get mortgage was last modified: July 6th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdonegalKevin MolloyMortgagelast_img read more
