BILL OF THE WEEK

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp Sunday 17 April 2011 10:02 pm Four bankers chose City favourite 1 Lombard Street to celebrate a deal in a low-key fashion, opting for the reasonably priced set lunch at £24.50. However, their restraint went out of the window when they spotted the wine list and, before they knew it, they had ordered some “superlative” bottles from the 1 Lombard Street cellar. The Capitalist hears the party enjoyed an “extremely rare” Egly Ouriet 1999, a bottle of Domaine Leflaive Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet from 2001 and a Chateau Leoville-Las Cases 1982 – the claret credited with sending sales of Bordeaux into orbit. To set the seal on their successful deal, the bankers chose a bottle of Chateau d’Yquem 1991 – the sweet wine that set the standard for Sauternes “perfection”. The bankers may not have got much work done for the rest of the afternoon, but at least no-one can fault their dedication for quality over quantity. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySenior Living | Search AdsNew Senior Apartments Coming to Scottsdale (Take A Look at The Prices)Senior Living | Search AdsSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald Sharecenter_img BILL OF THE WEEK KCS-content Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.com whatsapplast_img read more

GAN targets second half launch for US online sports betting

first_img Email Address Regions: US New Jersey Pennsylvania GAN targets second half launch for US online sports betting GAN has reiterated its intention to launch online sports betting services in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania during the second half of the year Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter GAN has reiterated its intention to launch online sports betting services in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania during the second half of the year. Sports wagering is not yet legal in either of the US states, but both New Jersey and Pennsylvania are now eligible to regulate such services after last month’s Supreme Court ruling on the matter. In May, the Supreme Court voted to overturn the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), in a move that will now enable states to individually legalise sports betting. Recent press reports in the US have raised doubts as to whether certain casinos in New Jersey will be able to offer online sports betting due to their ownership or affiliation with sports teams. However, GAN has moved to allay concerns over the matter, saying that it has investigated the issue with its clients and does not currently expect any impact on its plans to launch sports betting. GAN intends to deliver sports betting services as an integrated extension into its enterprise software platform. Dermot Smurfit, chief executive of GAN, said: “Online sports betting ‘go-live’ preparations are well advanced and we remain confident in launching as soon as reasonably possible in H2.” The declaration comes after GAN last month announced details of a proposed equity subscription of £7.5m (€8.5m/$10.1m) as it seeks to bolster its position in the US. The company plans to use the proceeds to strengthen its software engineering resources in order to better serve existing customers in the country. GAN already works with a number of clients in the US such as WinStar.com.Related articles: GAN proposes £7.5m equity subscription in US Sports betting Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 7th June 2018 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

May 5, 2017 at 5:43 pm Bruce, Your thoughts here are rationalization and hypocrisy at its worst. Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group May 3, 2017 at 6:17 pm This may focus attention on just how misguided anyone can become. That is an important point to consider.Frustration over current policies and upheaval do not make this inappropriate action acceptable.Am very much in favor of legal and peaceful assembly and demonstrations. We are the people who make this country and this world what it is. We need to take responsibility for making this a more perfect place for all. May 3, 2017 at 6:35 pm Much attention is of course focused on the incident. But where should our attention be directed? I see this incident as a cry for help by one who felt what so many of us felt after the election: unsafe, betrayed, not knowing who to trust, fearful of our personal safety, wondering about job security, and pretty much other emotion someone who is female, poor, minority or in an oppressed or marginalized community could feel. We felt it with good reason. We have seen the systematic dismantling of all kinds of protections for the environment, protections for poor people against what amounts to a form of usury in removing safeguards as a result of our financial meltdown. We have seen attempts to deport and ban individuals based solely on the religious faith they profess. Tomorrow is likely to bring a new Executive Order adversely impacting the civil and human rights of LGBTQ+ people. Is there any wonder why fear might drive someone to commit vandalism? While it probably is a poor way to generate support for a cause, it did get attention. So now that we know it wasn’t a hate crime in the traditional sense, will we be gracious and help those feeling threatened overcome their anxieties? Will we work to prevent elected and appointed officials from imposing discriminatory actions on those outcasts that the late Presiding Bishop affirmed would not be outcasts in our church? Or will we go about business as usual and allow those who felt threatened by a “fake crime” to feel threatened by the realities they experience and see each day? Truly: what would Jesus do? WE are Jesus Movement people, so we should know the answer.

Wright, etc… BUT, no where did you see the rioting, violent protesting, graffiti and such un-Christian behavior as you have seen on the far radical left which this organist represents. Once again the far left radicals are so unhinged that they continue to break the law in the name of political discourse. Embarrassing! Enforce the law as if the perpetrator had insulted Obama. This would be front page national news for a week if this had been directed towards Obama when he was pres. Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Joan Gundersen says: Featured Events May 10, 2017 at 1:38 pm Joan, you really think they left the graffiti up “in hopes of fostering dialogue”? I think that official statement they put out was specious baloney. They did it to play the martyr and advance a narrative that Trump supporters are bad people. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Pittsburgh, PA May 4, 2017 at 9:24 am More than just “fashionable,” the false-flag, or fake hate-crime, has become accepted modus operandi for the political left. If I was on Vestry @ St. David’s I certainly would be voting for the termination of young Mr. Stang. Actions have consequences. Submit a Press Release Rector Knoxville, TN Iris Waltersc says: May 6, 2017 at 10:31 am Bruce — I think that when God spoke “Thou shalt not bear any false witness” there were no qualifiers added such as “Except if you don’t like Donald Trump.” Try as you and other liberal apologists might, there is no excuse for ignoring that most basic relationship command — even when you are disappointed it still applies. It’s a shame that this young man has crippled his reputation and future and I truly hope that he will recover and be able to mature and be a successful person. Meanwhile I question the state of Christian teaching these days. Many educational offerings or sermons center on how one feels about life and how to make a difference in what matters to them. As wonderful as that is, it’s not the starting place. The solid teaching of relating with God and ones neighbor starts with God’s ideal of it as seen in the person of Christ. Keith Patterson says: Chip Chillington says: Roger Hamilton says: Church organist arrested in post-election vandalism at Episcopal congregation in Indiana Rector Albany, NY May 3, 2017 at 11:17 pm The back drop of most of what I have read here is the confusion that loving others in a Godly way means upholding their un-Godly behavior. Christ Rebuked the Behavior. Then Loved the Person. Then Taught Godly Ways. Another way of saying this is to “Speak the Truth in a Loving and Encouraging Way.” esteban rodriguez says: esteban rodriguez says: mike geibel says: Bruce Garner says: Election 2016, mike geibel says: Associate Rector Columbus, GA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA May 4, 2017 at 2:56 pm Bruce,I agree with quite a few of your sentiments, but this is just awful: “While it probably is a poor way to generate support for a cause, it did get attention.” You don’t make the world a better place by being untruthful. Yes, I suppose this made liberals at places like St. David’s feel like heroes for awhile, but now they have to go through the emotional turmoil of knowing this was a false flag, and that a person they knew and trusted had misled them. Tags May 4, 2017 at 8:38 pm He is not a “victim” — he is the perpetrator. He lied to the police about his whereabouts and confessed when it was evident he was the prime suspect via incriminating phone records. His “fear” excuse sounds manufactured–it is more likely he was angry at the election results and lashed out to make people believe that racists Trump supporters vandalized the church. Whether he’s gay or straight is immaterial–neither circumstance would excuse his actions. The story is now a purely local matter and should not be political fodder for either the Excus-a-holics on the Left or the Hang ’em High-ers on the Right. The DA and local judge will determine the suitable civil penalties (fine and community service?) It is up to the Vestry and Minister to decide whether to continue his employment. He has expressed remorse, even if not coming completely clean, and deserves forgiveness. We have all probably done some foolish things in our lives. The lesson learned is that uncontrolled passion and political angst can make us do things we later regret. I pray the public humiliation will not cause these rather senseless transgressions to irreparably tarnish the young man forever. The whole story makes me grateful that some of my own stupid acts when I was young were never made public but known only to God. May 4, 2017 at 6:31 pm Left unsaid in this article is that St. Paul’s pointedly left the graffiti remain uncleaned because they thought it served to publicly shame Trump supporters. Now, though, ….The church may plead that they were unwitting accomplices in this slander, but they were accomplices all the same and owe the public an unqualified apology.

I don’t mean to sound unkind (well, maybe I do, just a little!) but if the perpetrators of such acts within the Episcopal Church are guilty in the first instance, responsibility has to be shared with the higher-ups in the church who routinely throw around such words as “racism”, “sexism” and “homophobia” to describe the attitude of anyone with whom they happen to disagree.

Ernie Martin says: Ernie Hammel says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC May 5, 2017 at 9:50 am Esteban Rodriguez makes a very good point. It is deliciously ironic that our Presiding Bishop himself unwittingly took part in what was essentially a false flag operation by making a special trip to St. David’s only to discover that the organist perpetrator had been one of St. David’s own. Scott Elliott says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH May 6, 2017 at 3:25 pm Good point, Esteban. If the graffiti had been pornographic or blasphemous, surely the church leaders would have rushed to have it removed or covered up. Maybe it shows that the best of us are too willing to believe the worst in others with whom we disagree. Ted Gemberling says: Will Cate says: May 3, 2017 at 10:55 pm The information that I have read said that he is a paid employee in the Episcopal Church. This does not mean he is an Episcopalian. I don’t see the connection with ‘the higher ups’ in the Episcopal Church being responsible. “Heil Trump” was spray-painted on the exterior of St. David’s Episcopal Church in Bean Blossom, Indiana, sometime either late Nov. 12 or early Nov. 13. Photo: Facebook[Episcopal News Service] A staff organist has been arrested in the post-election vandalism at an Episcopal church in Indiana – an incident that generated national headlines in November as a possible case of politically motivated hate speech, but one that prosecutors now say was instead the act of someone hoping to mobilize others disappointed with the election results.Nathan Stang, 26, faces a misdemeanor count of institutional criminal mischief for the damage to St. David’s Episcopal Church, the congregation in Bean Blossom, Indiana, where he serves as organist. He was arrested May 3, three days after Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry came to St. David’s to preside at the Sunday Eucharist and preach.The congregation feels “like we had the rug pulled out from underneath us,” the Rev. Kelsey Hutto, priest-in-charge at St. David’s, told Episcopal News Service in a May 3 interview.Earlier in the day, Hutto released a statement on the church’s website saying, “Nathan is a member of our St. David’s family and naturally there is a certain amount of betrayal with this act.”“Over the coming weeks and days we will process our emotions regarding this hurtful act. I ask that we remember what we have stood for over the past few months – love and forgiveness,” she said.St. David’s was one of at least two Episcopal congregations that were targeted with graffiti on the weekend after Donald Trump was elected president. The graffiti at St. David’s included the words “Heil Trump” as well as a gay slur and a swastika.Organist Nathan Stang is shown in a photo posted with his bio on the website of St. David’s Episcopal Church.Stang reported the vandalism at St. David’s to Hutto on Nov. 13, saying he discovered it when he arrived that Sunday morning to prepare for services.A statement released by Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Theodore F. Adams said Stang, when confronted with results of the nearly six-month investigation, confessed to spray-painting the graffiti himself.“Stang stated that he wanted to mobilize a movement after being disappointed in and fearful of the outcome of the national election,” Adams said, adding that investigators concluded this was not a hate crime. “Stang denied that his actions were motivated by any anti-Christian or anti-gay motivations.”Stang was arrested about a half hour west of the church, in Bloomington, Indiana, and brought to Nashville, Indiana, to be booked into the Brown County Jail, the Herald Times newspaper reported, adding that he was released after posting a $155 bond. The charge carries a maximum potential sentence of one year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.“This incident has been a blight on our small and diverse community, and I am proud of the hard work put forth by the Brown County Sheriff’s Office,” Adams said in his news release. “It was truly a team effort.”Bean Blossom, Indiana, is a town of fewer than 3,000 people some 50 miles south of Indianapolis. St. David’s serves people from five communities in Brown County, Indiana, focusing its outreach on addressing hunger and the needs in a county where 97 percent of its 15,000 residents are white.The vandalism thrust the Episcopal congregation into the national spotlight, along with Church of Our Savior in Silver Spring, Maryland, where a sign was found defaced with the words “Trump Nation Whites Only” on the same day.Hutto told ENS in November that her congregation was trying to respond to the vandalism with a message of love and welcome.“I’ve been using Presiding Bishop Curry’s statement that ‘sometimes doing the right thing is not always the popular thing,’ and we are living into that, and proud of that,” Hutto said then, “and we believe that facing hate with love is the right way to go about our call as Christians.”Stang has served for about a year in the paid position of organist while he attends Indiana University, in Bloomington. St. David’s website describes him as “a composer, teacher, cat lover and organist” who is pursuing a doctorate in music.Hutto told ENS after Stang’s arrest that she was unaware he was a suspect in the vandalism until the morning of his arrest. The congregation expects Stang to be held responsible, but the news of his involvement will not change how St. David’s responds to the incident, she said.“The fact of the matter is, it didn’t matter who perpetrated the crime. In the end, our message of love and forgiveness extends to all,” Hutto said.Stang’s future with the congregation was expected to be discussed May 3 by the vestry at a previously scheduled meeting. And Hutto said the incident, arrest and message of forgiveness likely will be a topic at the congregation’s regular Wednesday evening service.Hutto also confirmed that Stang played the organ for last Sunday’s service, with the presiding bishop in attendance.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry delivers a sermon April 30 at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Bean Blossom, Indiana. Photo: Diocese of Indianapolis, via videoCurry was in Indiana over the weekend to preside at the ordination and consecration of the Right Rev. Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows as the 11th bishop of the Diocese of Indianapolis, the Episcopal Church’s first black female diocesan bishop. The next day during his sermon at St. David’s, Curry conveyed the message that “love wins.”“You were here where we needed God’s unconditional love,” Curry told the congregation, according to a news release from the diocese detailing the visit. “My friends, we have a world that is trying to tear itself apart. We have to love it back together.”Stang had confessed to police two days earlier, according to court documents, which reveal that police identified the organist as a suspect early in their investigation by tracing his location through cell phone records.On April 28, he told a Brown County sheriff’s detective that he “felt scared and alone because of the election results,” the court documents say. He said he wanted to “mobilize a movement” but had not expected the intense media attention that the vandalism generated. He later told police he regretted his actions.“I suppose I wanted to give local people a reason to fight for good,” he said in a written statement to police. “I, of course, realize now that this was NOT the way to go about inspiring activism.”Baskerville-Burrows issued a statement May 3 saying she was saddened by the news.“This was a hurtful, dishonest and profoundly misguided action that stands against the values of the people this diocese and the Episcopal Church, and we will continue to cooperate with the authorities who are pursuing this case,” the bishop said.“We are living now in a political climate that is so divisive and highly charged that people from all across the political spectrum are making thoughtless and hurtful choices that they believe are justified by the righteousness of their causes. As people who follow Jesus, we must find a different way.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. He can be reached at [email protected] May 4, 2017 at 7:42 am I would have fired him immediately when, as Rector, I found out what he did. There is no excuse for defacing any house of worship. May 4, 2017 at 7:45 pm St. David’s, not St. Paul’s. May 4, 2017 at 12:12 pm Bruce, were you ready to characterize the graffiti as a “cry for help” when you thought it came from a Trump supporter, as Mr. Stang intended? Were you willing to make excuses based on the vandal’s fearfulness, sense of betrayal and “pretty much any other emotion” when you believed he was acting in opposition to your own convictions? Do your ends justify his means?In fact, this was a hate-crime: hatred for a duly-elected leader who represents a challenge to a particular status-quo. The crime was despicable before and is despicable now, with the aggravating factor of the cynical attempt to stir up hatred and fear. We may forgive Mr. Stang, as we should have forgiven the perpetrator if he had been what he pretended to be. But to make excuses for his behavior because “it did get attention” is a slippery Orwellian slope.

Rally defends special education in Puerto Rico and U.S.

first_imgAusterity imposed on Puerto Rico’s educational system by the unelected colonialist fiscal board was the target of a street rally in New York City on Dec. 14. The rally was called by the New York chapter of the Timón Committee, which works to raise awareness of special education rights — and of the struggles faced by people with disabilities and their families — both on the island and in the U.S. Photo: PIST NYCMilagros Cancel, president of Comité Timón NY, explained that Comité Timón in Puerto Rico had previously won a class action suit which granted educational civil rights specifically to Puerto Rican children. The children are also legally protected under U.S. federal laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act.The parent organization in Puerto Rico continues to defend these rights against attacks, including layoffs, hundreds of school closings and most recently a proposed law known as Proyecto C 1945. Cancel stressed that these cutbacks and other attacks push families to migrate from the island to the U.S., seeking assistance for their children, where mainland school districts are also being targeted by right-wing austerity forces. According to the rally press release, draft bill 1945 “attempts to scale back provisions gained from Rosa Lydia Velez v. the Department of Education” and “excludes infants, depriving them of early intervention services.” The proposed law also “violates due process” in future judicial cases addressing special education. This class action case was originally brought in 1981, with a final judgment not issued until 2002.Proyecto C 1945, approved by one chamber of Puerto Rico’s assembly and headed to the other, is strongly opposed by activists, educators and parent advocates on the island.In New York, the special education struggle in Puerto Rico has been embraced by a coalition of Puerto Rican diaspora groups known as Frente Independentista Boricua, with solidarity from others who experience the daily inadequacies of the educational system.The rally chair, teacher Lorraine Liriano, read off a strong list of endorsers and speakers, including Partido Independentista Puertorriqueño and Parents to Improve School Transportation. Also present were members of A Call to Action on Puerto Rico, Chelsea Rising, South Bronx Community Congress and Workers World. Party. Representatives of New York Boricua Resistance prepared a plena song for the gathering. Plena, an historic Puerto Rican musical form, concentrates on providing information about contemporary events, earning the nickname “el periódico cantado” — the “sung newspaper.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

IFB Farm Bill Education Begins for Hoosiers

first_img Farm bill regional meetingsIndiana Farm Bureau members and non-members are invited to attend one of the regional meetings this week designed to help farmers get a jumpstart on understanding the new farm bill. Two meetings are scheduled for Thursday, in Fulton County and at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and one meeting will be at the Lawrence County Fairgrounds on Friday.Kyle Cline, National Policy Advisor for Indiana Farm Bureau said they want to get information to farmers now that details are being released.“The bill itself is almost a thousand pages so it’s quite complex. There are several new programs and election options that are available within the farm bill and the commodity program. Also there is a new crop insurance option, supplemental coverage option, so we wanted to get out there and provide that information early and at least get farmers familiar with these programs and get them to be thinking about this. Then we’ll also walk through some examples, farm case studies.”Cline says the focus will primarily be on the commodity and livestock programs of the farm bill.“April 15th is the tentative date for signups for the livestock indemnity program and the livestock forage disaster program, so that will be very much front and center for the discussion,” he told HAT. “The commodity programs, while the rules are still being written, we want to walk producers and others interested through those programs and what they might be able to expect.”John Anderson, deputy chief economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation, and Matt Erickson, economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation, will be the guest speakers.Cline adds “stay tuned” for additional dates sometime from summer to fall when IFB will continue its farm bill educational outreach.This week’s meeting are:North region – March 27, 9-11 a.m., Fulton County Fairgrounds Community Center, 1009 West 3rd St., Rochester, IN 46975Central region –  March 27, 2-4: p.m., The Glass Barn, Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 E. 38th St., Indianapolis, IN 46205South region – March 28, 9-11 a.m., Lawrence County Fairgrounds Expo Hall, 11265 US Hwy. 50 West, Bedford, IN 47421Learn more here in the HAT video: Home Indiana Agriculture News IFB Farm Bill Education Begins for Hoosiers Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleRail Congestion Pushes Ethanol Prices HigherNext articleSeed Consultants Names Regional Sales Manager Andy Eubank IFB Farm Bill Education Begins for Hoosiers By Andy Eubank – Mar 25, 2014 last_img read more
