first_img Brazilian President signs sports betting measure into law AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 13th December 2018 | By contenteditor Brazil’s outgoing president Michel Temer has ratified legislation that paves the way for the country’s National Congress to implement sports betting regulations for the first time.Temer has signed Provisional Measure 846/18 into law, with the bill formalising plans for the distribution of revenue raised through the country’s national lottery Loterias Caixa (Lotex), as well as setting a two-year window in which Congress can develop and pass sports betting controls.This period can be extended by a further two years should the legislature fail to reach a decision within the window.The country’s Ministry of Finance will be responsible for developing the technical regulations, as well as handling other potentially contentious issues such as wether to open the market to private operators, or maintain a monopoly on sports betting.The bill does allow for both land-based and online sports betting, with land-based operators required to pay out 80% of handle in winnings, and split 6% between a number of social and security bodies. Of this 6%, 2.5% will go to the National Public Security Force (FNSP), 2% will be allocated to football clubs, 1% to public schools and 0.5% deposited into Brazil’s social security fund.Online companies will pay 89% of amounts wagered back to players as winnings, with 0.25% going to social security, 0.75% to schools, 1% to the FNSP and 1% to football clubs.The Provisional Measure, authored by Pará Senator Flexa Ribeiro, rapidly progressed through the lower house of the Brazilian National Congress, the Chamber of Deputies, then the Upper House in  late November. It is the first significant expansion of gambling in Brazil, with previous efforts failing to progress through the legislature and other gambling-related measures such as a tender to sell a stake in Lotex derailed by claims of corruption.

C’est une histoire de résurrection – celle d’épiscopaliens réinventant leur église et, ce faisant, eux-mêmes.« Nous n’essayons pas de reconstruire une vieille église », déclare J. Scott Mayer, l’évêque provisoire de Fort Worth, qui est également l’évêque du Diocèse du Nord-Ouest du Texas. « Nous essayons de prendre part à la résurrection pour devenir un nouveau corps ».Ces épiscopaliens ont établi de nouveaux ministères et, ce faisant, développent de nouvelles manières d’être une église dans leur façon de servir leurs communautés.Et lorsqu’ils « vont à l’église », certains épiscopaliens de Fort Worth se réunissent dans des espaces atypiques comme un théâtre ou un centre commercial. Les Wise County Episcopalians (épiscopaliens du comté de Wise) ont par exemple leur lieu de culte dans un bâtiment qui était à l’origine celui de l’Episcopal Mission of the Ascension (mission épiscopale de l’Ascension) en 1889, puis est ensuite devenu une fabrique de matelas et, plus récemment, une chapelle pour les mariages.Même le poste d’évêque est différent. Bien que la formule d’évêque provisoire soit utilisée ailleurs dans l’église épiscopale, c’est tout de même quelque chose de relativement rare qui, selon Scott Mayer, illustre la façon dont les diocèses pourraient mettre en commun leurs ressources.Il fait remarquer que l’évêque Sean Rowe du diocèse du Nord-Ouest de la Pennsylvanie (qui est également évêque provisoire du Diocèse de Bethlehem dans la partie Est de l’État), souligne que dans les années 1960 l’Église épiscopale avait un moindre nombre de diocèses mais que maintenant elle a un plus grand nombre de diocèses et un moindre nombre de fidèles.« Il se pourrait bien que ce ne soit pas un modèle durable pour nous tous », poursuit Scott Mayer, ajoutant qu’il ne préconise pas nécessairement d’associer des diocèses mais que l’Église va probablement devoir trouver de nouveaux moyens de partager les ressources diocésaines.« Et, dans ce cas, la ressource à partager ce serait l’évêque », conclut-il.Scott Mayer est le quatrième évêque provisoire de Fort Worth. Le premier était Edwin F. « Ted » Gulick Jr., alors évêque du Kentucky, suivi de C. Wallis Ohl Jr. évêque retraité du Nord-Ouest du Texas puis de Rayford B. High Jr., évêque suffragant retraité.Forth Worth compte dix-sept congrégations dont une congrégation luthérienne ayant comme pasteur un prêtre épiscopalien. Depuis la scission, le diocèse a connu une augmentation de 19,3 % de ses membres pratiquants et une augmentation de 11,9 % de son revenu d’exploitation. Depuis sa restructuration en 2009, Fort Worth a chaque année versé l’intégralité du montant demandé par l’Église épiscopale pour soutenir le budget triennal de toute l’église. Il est le seul des six diocèses de l’État du Texas à l’avoir fait.Katie Sherrod, directrice des communications à Forth Worth a déclaré à Episcopal News Service qu’au sortir de la restructuration de 2009, toute l’administration était totalement désorganisée car l’ancien évêque occupait les bureaux diocésains et d’autres biens appartenant à l’Église épiscopale. « Nous avons passé 2009 et 2010 à localiser les épiscopaliens, reconstruire les congrégations, trouver le clergé et localiser des lieux de culte. En 2011/2012, nous avons finalement eu une évaluation réaliste du nombre de membres dans les congrégations du diocèse », explique-t-elle. « C’est sur la base de ces chiffres qu’est faite l’évaluation de notre croissance ».Transformer la manière dont l’Église épiscopale gère les vingt-quatre comtés du Centre-Nord du Texas vient en partie de la nécessité en tant qu’Église épiscopale et que diocèse de chercher à récupérer les biens immeubles et autres actifs encore contrôlés par ceux qui ont quitté l’église. La Cour d’appel du Texas étudie l’affaire après avoir entendu les plaidoiries orales, lors de l’audience du 19 avril 2016.« On prévoit, cependant, que la décision de la Cour d’appel soit portée en appel devant la Cour suprême du Texas par la partie à l’encontre de qui la Cour d’appel aura tranché », explique Katie Sherrod.L’Église épiscopale dans son ensemble a soutenu la réinvention du diocèse. Le Conseil exécutif, qui s’est réuni dans le diocèse deux fois depuis la scission, a en juin offert une aide sous la double forme d’une subvention directe prise sur le budget global de l’église – de l’argent recueilli par le Bureau du développement de l’Église et l’Évêque Primat – et de subventions pour l’implantation d’églises et le développement de missions locales par le biais de la résolution 2015-D005 du processus d’implantation d’églises.Le financement, assuré conjointement par le diocèse et ses congrégations, aide à soutenir le clergé en charge des communautés de foi à croissance rapide.Le projet « 4 Saints Food Pantry » (aide alimentaire des quatre saints) qui vise à répondre aux besoins et établir des relations avec des personnes qui souffrent de la faim dans le désert alimentaire de la partie Est de Fort Worth, a reçu une subvention de 20 000 dollars au titre de la « Mission Enterprise Zone ». Le ministère emploiera l’argent pour commencer à acheter de l’équipement nécessaire pour une banque alimentaire homologuée. La banque alimentaire aura ses activités à St. Luke’s in the Meadow Episcopal Church (Fort Worth). Ultérieurement, elle établira un partenariat officiel avec la Tarrant Area Food Bank. St. Luke, St. Martin (Keller-Southlake), St. Stephen (Hurst) et St. Alban (culte au Théâtre Arlington) sont les quatre « saints » associés à ce ministère.En vue d’obtenir des fonds supplémentaires liés à la résolution D005, d’autres demandes de subventions sont en cours, dont une pour l’implantation dune église dans la partie Ouest de Fort Worth à croissance rapide, ajoute Katie Sherrod.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Gala Awards Celebrationcenter_img From Sybil Jones of Sybil Jones and CompanyAnuvia Plant Nutrients has received the Bronze Award for Sustainability at the 2017 Edison Awards presentations in New York City. This prestigious award recognizes the world’s best innovations and inventors. Anuvia was honored for its Organic MaTRX™ technology, which turns organic waste into highly efficient plant nutrients.Anuvia won the award in the Sustainability category, which recognizes advancements that transform the world of commerce and foster energy conservation. The Edison Awards are among the most esteemed accolades to honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design, and innovation. Award winners represent “game changing” products and services, as well as excellence and leadership in innovation around four criteria: Concept, Value, Delivery and Impact.Each year, more than 4,000 products compete for the Edison Awards. Each entry is thoroughly reviewed by the innovation leaders that make up the Edison Awards steering committee and then voted on by more than 3,000 professionals from the fields of product development, design, engineering, science, marketing and education including professional organizations representing a wide variety of industries and disciplines.Throughout the entire process, Edison Universe seeks out “innovators who have globally influential ideas, who have exhibited the incredible dedication, effort, and persistence required to bring dreams to life,” notes steering committee member Kenneth D. Gray. “They remind us that what we can dream, we can achieve.”In the case of Anuvia, the innovative technology was developed by examining ways to utilize organic waste—from food, livestock or municipalities. The resulting technology created a plant nutrient that fit the concept of a “circular economy” where organic waste materials are consumed and processed into homogenous multi-nutrient enhanced efficiency, slow-release plant nutrient products which protect the environment and improve soil health and plant growth.“We are honored to be a recipient of the Edison Award. This technology has enormous potential to reduce organic excess and produce commercially viable, environmentally sustainable products,” says Hugh MacGillivray, Anuvia’s executive vice president of commercial.The Organic MaTRX is a novel slow-release delivery system that mimics what happens to organic matter in the soil. It places up to 17% organic matter back into the soil. It does not use any of the current chemical or poly coating technologies used by other slow release products. Anuvia products reduce nutrient losses in the environment and deliver a balanced nutrient package for crops and turf.Anuvia offers two product lines with the Organic MaTRX—GreenTRX™ for golf and turf markets and SymTRX™ for agriculture. Anuvia started its first full-scale production line one year ago in Zellwood, FL. By 2020, it projects that additional facilities will open to serve crop and turf markets throughout the U.S.Kicking off their year as Edison Award honorees, the award recipients gathered in New York City to participate in Edison’s “Meet the Innovators Forum” at the New York Academy of Sciences and an Exhibitor’s Showcase. The day was capped off by a Black-Tie Awards Ceremony where awards were officially presented in recognition of the very best of the best in innovation worldwide.The Edison Awards are named after Thomas Alva Edison, who pioneered new product development methods and a systematic process of innovation. This year marks the 30th year that Edison Universe has presented the Edison Awards. Recipients have ranged from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. The award is considered to be 3rd-party validation that delivers an affirmation of superior quality. Gov.

Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas. If you ever get the chance to meet him, he is such a positive person that you might just have your day made. You can find him in the loudest section of the Amon G. Carter Stadium or on the field at halftime with “The Pride Of TCU,” the Horned Frog Marching Band. He plays bass drum for the TCU Drumline. ReddIt Twitter ReddIt ESPN’s ‘The Undefeated’ writer visits campus, talks media coverage on Nike, Kaepernick ad Linkedin Linkedin printKappa Lambda Delta Sorority, Inc. prides itself on being an inclusive Greek organization for all women all the while promoting and focusing on the Asian and Asian-American interests that it was built upon.“What they were looking for at TCU, they just weren’t quite finding it,” former KLD President Teresa Cenney, a senior film-television-digital media major, said about the founders of their sorority. “They just wanted a close-knit community of people with similar interests and values to them and they didn’t quite fit in with like the other Greek organizations here, so they took it upon themselves to found Kappa Lambda Delta.”Dr. Carrie Currier teaches in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts and serves as the campus advisor for Kappa Lambda Delta. (Brandon Kitchin/TCU360)With help from their campus advisor, Carrie Currier, an associate professor of political science seven women founded KLD on TCU’s campus on September 19, 2005.Along with Eta Iota Sigma (HIS) – a Christian-based sorority in the Independent Greek Council – which was founded in 1992, it is one of two recognized Greek organizations that were founded at Texas Christian University.Currier says in addition to seeing KLD grow larger throughout the year, she has also seen it gain a presence on campus.“In the early years it was just kind of getting a place for themselves and now I think at least they’re an established part of the TCU community and so it helps that people know that it’s there and that’s it’s got roots,” she said.Kappa Lambda Delta’s work on campus and in the community has them partnering with other student and Greek organizations to put on events and volunteer.They also keep in contact with the Asian-based interest groups at the University of Texas at Arlington, whose members routinely attend their probate shows, where they reveal their new members each semester.Recently, they had their rush week for women that were interested in their organization, and before that, they hosted their annual Lunar New Year festival with the Asian Studies program in January.The sorority’s philanthropy has members working at the Union Gospel Mission center of Tarrant County in Fort Worth where they serve food to the homeless, interact with and help children or participate in clothing drives.In addition to being active socially, they perform well academically and promote educational opportunities for younger students.Among the six organizations in the MGC, KLD has earned the highest member GPA five of the past six semesters. They also earned the highest GPA of any Greek organization on campus during the Spring 2016 semester.In the past, they also have volunteered to read books to visiting elementary students at Paschal High School.Kappa Lambda Delta’s official seal (, Cenney said, is one of the ways they show “empowerment through education”, which is one of the components of their sorority’s mission statement.“School is number one, and that’s the reason we’re at college,” Cenney said. “We like to show empowerment through education not only at TCU but in the neighboring communities because we want to show the younger generations that college is something that you can definitely do too, and [that] it’s obtainable and it’s something that is important.”One common misconception about the organization that KLD hopes to dispel is that it is not an Asian-exclusive group. Instead, they say they gladly accept anyone who is interested despite race and ethnicity and have had members in the past that were not Asian.“Our motto is ‘Confident, Inclusive, and Beautiful’ so ‘inclusive’ meaning anyone of any race/ethnicity can join us and we’ll welcome them with open arms,” Cenney said. “We love people with different backgrounds.”In addition to accepting other racial and ethnic backgrounds, KLD is also diverse in terms of the different Asian backgrounds and places of origin that members represent.Cenney’s father is half-Czech and half-Ukrainian, and her mother is from Thailand. She said she likes the fact that many of her sorority sisters bring a variety of Asian customs that come from different parts of the world.

The Part II of the First Schedule of the CrPC sets out the ‘Classification of Offences against Other Laws.’ Under the CrPC, the offences under UAPA punishable with imprisonment for more than 7 years are triable by Court of Sessions, while, those punishable with imprisonment up to 7 years and under, are triable by Magistrate’s Courts. However, the said scheme has completely been done away with by the NIA Act. The UAPA has been listed at Serial No. 2 in the Schedule to the NIA Act. Under the NIA Act, all the Scheduled Offences, i.e., offences under the UAPA, whether investigated by the NIA or by the investigating agencies of the State Government, are exclusively triable by Courts of Session, whether or not designated as Special Courts under Section 11 or Section 22 of the NIA Act, as the case may be. In this regard, the Section 13(1) of the said Act categorically lays down that every Scheduled Offence under the NIA Act, shall exclusively be triable by a Special Court. The said legal proposition was affirmed by the 3-Judge Bench judgment of the Supreme Court dt. 12/10/2020, authored by R.F. Nariman, J., for the Court, in Bikramjit Singh vs The State of Punjab, Criminal Appeal No. 667/2020 (@ Special Leave Petition (Crl.) No. 2933/2020). Remarkably, under the NIA Act, Special Courts or Sessions Courts are Courts of exclusive Original Jurisdiction, not of referred jurisdiction, as it used to be under UAPA and is still the case under CrPc. Now, the reports by National Investigation Agency (NIA) or State Agency, i.e., police authorities, after investigation are straightway submitted to the Special Court/Sessions Judge, or such Court may take cognizance suo moto, under S. 16(1) of NIA Act, without the intermediary role of Magistrate. Manifestly, the Magistrate has no role, at all, to play under the NIA Act and as such, the provisions of S.173(2) CrPC are otiose to reports under NIA Act. Significantly, the NIA Act has adopted the device of legislation by incorporation and has incorporated within its sweep, the appropriate procedural provisions from CrPC, with a view to regulate the trial of offences before the Special Court. Notably, only those provisions of CrPC, which have been incorporated by the device of legislation by incorporation, would only apply to the proceedings under NIA Act, and none else. Furthermore, in the entire NIA Act, there is no mention of Judicial Magistrate. Accordingly, the said Magistrate’s Courts are of no moment or consequence, in so far as, the NIA Act is concerned. In other words, the Magistrate’s Courts are non-existent and alien as regards the NIA Act and the investigation and prosecution of Scheduled Offences thereunder. Despite the same, it has been seen that several Magistrate’s Courts across the country are usurping the powers of Special Courts (or Courts of Session, as the case may be) under the NIA Act, and remanding the persons, accused of scheduled offences under UAPA, unlawfully, either to police or judicial custody. It has further been seen, that applications by prosecution, under S. 43D(2) of the UAPA, are profusely being filed in the Magistrate’s Courts, either for grant of police custody or for extension of period of remand, and they are yielding to the same. As discussed earlier, the provisions of S. 43D UAPA, in toto, not having been expressly incorporated under the NIA Act, shall not apply to the Scheduled Offences to be investigated and prosecuted under the NIA Act. Further, the procedure for investigation of Scheduled Offences has been laid down under S. 6 of the NIA Act, which provides that upon recording an FIR as to commission of any Scheduled Offence, the officer-in-charge of police station shall forward the report to the State Government, forthwith; Upon receipt of the said report, the State Government shall forward it as expeditiously as possible to the Central Government for determination as to whether on the edifice of information received, the offence is a Scheduled Offence or not, and decide within 15 days from the receipt of the report, whether the same is a fit case to be investigated by the NIA, and till such time the officer-in-charge of the police station, and none else, shall continue with the investigation. It may be noted, that the provisions under Section 10 of the NIA Act which empower the State Government to investigate and prosecute offences, being qualified by the expression “Save as otherwise provided under this Act,” shall not come into play until the mandatory procedure of S. 6 has been exhausted. Moreover, as regards the grant of Bail, the same is to be found under the very scheme of the NIA Act, and not the CrPC. It is a well-known principle of procedural law, that trial of offences or provision for bail, both are interlinked, and cannot be placed under different legislations. Since, trial is to be conducted under NIA Act, therefore, the provision for bail should also be found there in the setting of the NIA Act itself. In this regard, S. 21(4) is germane, which provides, “notwithstanding anything contained in sub-section (3) of section 378 of the Code, an appeal shall lie to the High Court against an order of the Special Court granting or refusing bail.” Thus, it is clear that S. 21(4) is the source, wherefrom the right and remedy of bail under the NIA Act, without any conditions hedged in, is discernible. Accordingly, bail application is maintainable before the Special Court u/S. 21(4), shorn of any qualification or limitation for hearing the bail application. In view of the above, it is submitted that the fetters or manacles on the right of bail as laid down in S.43D(5) of UAPA Act are non-applicable in the matter of bail u/NIA Act, for the simple reason that the NIA Act has not referred to the said provision to be incorporated under this Act. Likewise, bail provisions under CrPC are also not applicable to bails under NIA Act. Hence, it is picturesque that the NIA Act is a self-sufficient and Self-Contained Code in itself. It is high time that the police authorities and the presiding officers of the Magistrate’s Courts be educated and well-acquainted with the legal regime of the NIA Act as applicable to offences under UAPA, and the restrictions imposed by the legislature. It is unfortunate that the offences under the UAPA, meant for investigation and prosecution under NIA Act, are to this day besieged by the spirits of CrPC and miscellaneous provisions of UAPA like S. 43D, whose application has been excluded from the scheme of the NIA Act by non-incorporation and the doctrine of cassius omissus. The UAPA needs an exorcism from the aged umbrae of CrPC haunting it, in favour of legal uprightness along with the rights and liberty of the people.Views are personal.(Authors are practicing Advocates in the Supreme Court of India.)Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
