European Commission criticises German State Treaty

first_img Email Address Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Casino & games 27th August 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter European Commission criticises German State Treaty The European Commission has once again criticised Germany’s proposed regulatory framework for gambling, warning that the short term legislation offered little incentive for operators to secure licences. The European Commission has once again criticised the latest incarnation of Germany’s State Treaty on Gambling, warning that the short term legislation offered little incentive for operators to secure licences.After the proposed legislation was submitted to the Commission in May this year, general director Lowri Evans has submitted a response which casts doubt on the effectiveness of the planned framework in a ‘blue letter’, seen by ‘blue letter’ is a formal notice that acts as a precursor to the launch of infringement proceedings against a member state, in which the Commission can ask for further clarification on elements of proposed legislation.Evans in particular criticised the short-term nature of the third amended State Treaty on Gambling. He questioned the logic of implementing the Treaty for such a short period, from 1 January 2020 – provided all 16 federal states ratify the legislation by 31 December 2019 – to 30 June, 2021.The fact that the legislation is a placeholder to be enforced while lawmakers develop a new model that will replace both the Treaty and Schleswig-Holstein’s liberal regulations has already prompted some operators to suggest it may not be properly enforced.In order to secure a licence, operators will be required to shut down any online casino offerings and offer sports betting without in-play wagering. Players will be restricted to spending €1,000 per month, with a 5% turnover tax levied on licensees. These restrictions and fees are expected to slash operators’ revenue should they be fully enforced.With these controls to be implemented, albeit for a short period, Evans noted that this could make the market particularly unattractive for operators. With the processing of licence applications to begin from 2 January, the first working day of 2020, licences could be valid for less than 18 months.While he acknowledged that the Treaty does contain provisions for licences to be extend by three years, to 30 June 2024, Evans added that he did not feel this would make securing a licence any more attractive for operators.Evans also cast doubt on whether goals of the Treaty, such as increasing player protection and driving unlicensed operators from the market, could be achieved in an 18-month period. He also queried when the effectiveness of the Treaty would be assessed, something pledged when it was first introduced in 2012.“The Commission emphasises the need for a continuous evaluation of the implementation and application of the State Treaty, in particular (but not limited to) sports betting,” Evans continued. “The German authorities have already committed in 2012 […] to an evaluation of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the provisions relating to sports betting.“Unfortunately, in view of the previous non-award of sports betting licenses, no such evaluation has yet been carried out,” he said. “Therefore, the German authorities are invited to [explain] how and when an evaluation of the appropriateness and effectiveness of the sports betting provisions will take place.”The EC’s response to the State Treaty is just the latest in a long line of instances in which it has criticised German gambling legislation. The 2012 incarnation of the Treaty was viewed as introducing unjustifiable restrictions on companies’ freedom to provide services in the European Union as result of a 20-licence limit.After the original plans were derailed by legal challenges from operators, the second amended Treaty, without the licence cap, also came in for criticism, with the EC arguing that it continued to prohibit online casino and poker – something it doubted could be enforced. However, that edition also failed to come into effect, after not all of Germany’s 16 member states ratified the Treaty, despite it being signed by each state’s Minister-President.While the third amended State Treaty includes the prohibitions contained in the previous two drafts, it will operate in tandem with Schleswig-Holstein’s regulatory model. This enforces no restrictions on product, and sets a 20% gross revenue tax for licensees. The legislation was renewed until 2021 in May this year, which many have seen as a compromise that suggests lawmakers will support more liberal federal regulations from 2021.

3 UK shares I want to hold for 20 years

first_img3 UK shares I want to hold for 20 years Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Great companies build wealth year after year, and it’s these types of businesses that make the best long-term investments. With that in mind, today, I’m going to highlight three UK shares that I currently own and plan to keep on holding for the next two decades as they continue to build wealth for shareholders. UK shares for the long term The first company I’m going to highlight is one of my favourite blue-chip stocks, insurance group Admiral (LSE: ADM). Over the past few decades, this organisation has created one of the UK’s most trusted and well-known insurance brands. The firm’s relentless focus on innovation and customer service has helped it pull ahead of competitors. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The firm’s next target is international growth. Admiral already has a handful of international operations, in France, Italy, Spain, and the US. These operations are still small compared to the rest of the group, but they’re growing rapidly. As these international businesses continue to expand, I think we could see tremendous returns from the Admiral share price. What’s more, the company is already a dividend champion. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 5%, which is high among UK shares today. I think the payout will continue to expand as the group grows overseas. Focus on emerging markets Consumer goods group Unilever (LSE: ULVR) also exhibits the qualities I look for in a good buy-and-forget investment. The company is one of the world’s largest consumer goods operations. It owns several billion-dollar brands, and it’s always buying or inventing new products. More importantly, the group generates 50% of its sales in emerging markets. These fast-growing regions are projected to expand much faster than the developing world over the next few decades. A young population and rising incomes are two of the reasons why emerging markets look set to power forward in the years ahead. Unilever is, in my view, one of the best UK shares to buy to benefit from this trend. The group’s blue-chip qualities and international diversification provide access to fast-growing markets as well as a dividend yield of 3%. London propertyMy final pick of UK shares is Great Portland Estates (LSE: GPOR). Commercial property owners are having a rough year. Rent collection rates are falling, and office occupancy levels are falling. However, Great Portland’s management is optimistic about the outlook for central London property. And I’m inclined to trust their views. The management team has decades of experience in this market, and the CEO has been managing property companies for over 30 years. To capitalise on opportunities in the market, Great Portland recently raised several hundred million pounds. While the London property market might continue to struggle in the near term, in the long run, over the next few decades, property prices should push higher. That should be positive for Great Portland. If the company can buy buildings at knock-down prices in the current crisis, it may be able to benefit from the rebound.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 1st November, 2020 | More on: ADM GPOR ULVR Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

National poll finds discrimination prevalent in the United States

first_imgNational poll finds discrimination prevalent in the United States Perspectives vary widely by race, hope for the future remains November 12, 2013 at 6:13 pm @Rich Basta,Wishing that discrimination has lessened–or imagining that we have made more actual progress in overcoming it than we have–will never make it disappear. And the survey does not even mention discrimination against women, gays, lesbians, or transgender persons, who still face open hate and assault simply because of their gender or orientation. Even military veterans face discrimination in hiring. And fear of those who differ from us, especially among Caucasians, is a leading cause of de facto discrimination.The United States has a very, very long way to go before we become–even remotely–the open, egalitarian, and equitable society that we like to imagine we are. To pretend that we have not fallen far short of God’s grace and Her call to justice is a deliberate delusion of the worst kind. Youth Minister Lorton, VA Angela Shepherd says: November 12, 2013 at 6:29 pm Mr. Huff and Mr. Spangler:I think you misrepresented my words.. I will give you both the benefit of the doubt as to your motives, as I don’t know you personally. I never said that there isn’t discrimination in America. We all fall short of God’s grace. I was just merely offering up an opinion that the survey does more harm than good. We have made great progress in this country on many fronts in regards to all kinds of discrimination. That’s an admission based on facts, not a delusion.Peace. November 22, 2013 at 5:54 am Well stated. The distinction between discrimination and racism is important. Anyone who follows the Southern Poverty Center’s tracking of hate groups is aware of the increase in these groups and the work that needs to be done in confronting this ‘sin’ and evil’. I hope this conference and poll will result in new energy in anti racism trainings in TEC. John R Huff Jr says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Martinsville, VA November 13, 2013 at 10:16 am The Harris Poll, released November 12, was the first ever commissioned by The Episcopal Church and focused on the topic of discrimination. The results of the poll are not the view of The Episcopal Church. This particular poll addresses specifically the topic of race, and is representative of Americans’ views, according to Harris, a respected polling and research firm.Clearly, the Harris Poll points out that while feelings of discrimination are not limited to any one race, it is particularly pronounced among African-Americans and white Americans. Conversation about race and discrimination is never easy. That is a foundational reason for The Episcopal Church to sponsoring Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America on November 15 and 16. Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America is designed to explore this topic further as a Church and as a society, to help find new ways to continue the progress, and to provoke discussion that will, hopefully, lead to broader awareness and personal action.

November 12, 2013 at 7:21 pm Our own church continues to perpetuate discrimination based on both class and race. As long as we continue to have separate services for congregants who are poor, such as the mid-week rector’s pantry; for the non-English speaking; and for the white bill payers, we continue our long Episcopalian tradition of discrimination.

The “Have white Americans have gotten more than they deserve” question just perpetuates the “class- warfare” model, pitting one group of Americans against the other. We have made great strides in this country- why can’t we just leave it at that, or emphasize? Martin Luther King taught us to relate to each other through the “content of our character”, and not to focus on the color of one’s skin. The way the article is written, you would think we haven’t made as much progress as we actually have.People can conduct any survey they want. I just feel this type of survey doesn’t move the ball forward. It perpeuates the balkanization of America instead of promoting unity. Others may disagree, but that’s how I feel about it.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York November 12, 2013 at 8:42 pm I am appalled by the discrimination in the article. I live in Hawaii where we have quite a mix of races and ethnic backgrounds. Where are the Asians and Pacific Island peoples? Were they not included because this was an East Coast survey? Of course racial discrimination still exists, and probably always will. Most of it is in the eyes of the one discriminated against and what they have been taught by their family and peers. Discrimination is always felt when one feels that they have not been treated fairly. But, life is not fair. Get over it! Love and forgive one another and get on with life. Jesus said that we are to love one another and that implies forgiveness along with it. He came to tell us that God forgives us for not loving one another, but that we are to continue to try anyway. Love will not stop discrimination but forgiveness will help us to get past it and on to happier lives. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA November 13, 2013 at 12:22 pm In the November 12 e-mail newsletter, the lead article was entitled “National poll finds discrimination prevalent in the United States.” I was disappointed to find that this headline was totally inaccurate when compared with the article. The article went on to say:A new national poll commissioned by the Episcopal Church has found that nearly all Americans (98 percent) feel that there is at least some discrimination in the United States today.My criticism is based on two points:1. The article title suggests that discrimination is a fact. That 98 percent of the people polled feel that way is only evidence of prevailing opinion and not of fact.2. In a similar manner, the poll did not find that discrimination was “prevalent.” According to Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, the term prevalent means dominant or widespread. According to the article, “nearly all Americans feel that there is at least some discrimination.” Clearly, “at least some discrimination” does not mean the same thing as “discrimination is prevalent.”Discrimination may or may not be prevalent. Although I suspect discrimination is indeed widespread, we do not have factual evidence either way based on the poll described in the article. To say the least, the headline for this article is misleading.center_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Rich Basta says: Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ November 12, 2013 at 7:38 pm I would only add that many still point to the fact that such discrimination is most evident at 11AM each Suday in most churches. Are we in the church concerned to doing anything about that? Is this not the pot calling the kettle black? Should we not cast out the beam in our own eyes before we attemp to remove the splinter in others? Submit a Job Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Neva Rae Fox says: Featured Jobs & Calls [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] A new national poll commissioned by the Episcopal Church has found that nearly all Americans (98 percent) feel that there is at least some discrimination in the United States today.In addition, African-American respondents (49 percent) are three times as likely as white respondents (16 percent) and Hispanic respondents (11 percent) to feel there is a “great deal” of discrimination.Harris Interactive conducted the poll online in October among more than 2,000 U.S. adults.“Despite major reforms, our culture continues to perpetuate discrimination in various forms,” said Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori. “Our churches and communities are critical motivators in encouraging change in these issues toward greater parity and acceptance.”In spite of those findings, more than eight in 10 Americans agree that in the future, Americans will be more accepting of all races. Hispanic respondents (87 percent) are more likely to agree than African-American respondents (68 percent) and are somewhat more optimistic than white (84 percent ) that Americans will be more accepting.Forum to explore findingsThese findings and others will be explored by a distinguished panel of national experts including Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, and former Mississippi Governor William Winter during a public forum on Nov. 15 in Jackson, Mississippi, Fifty Years Later: The State of Racism in America.The forum will be webcast live from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Cathedral and keynoted by the presiding bishop. Details are available here.Highest level of discriminationNearly seven in 10 Americans (69 percent) feel African-Americans are discriminated against, the highest of any race. In addition, six in 10 (63 percent) feel Hispanic Americans are discriminated against, while five in 10 (51 percent) feel Native Americans and nearly four in 10 (39 percent) feel whites are discriminated against.Generally, individual races feel they are discriminated against more than other races. This is particularly pronounced among African-Americans and white respondents:African-American respondents (96 percent) are more likely to believe they are discriminated against than white (65 percent) and Hispanic (76 percent) respondents.White respondents (45 percent) believe they are more likely to believe they are discriminated against than African-American (11 percent) and Hispanic (21 percent) respondents.Hispanic respondents (75 percent) believe they are more likely to believe they are discriminated against than white (63 percent) respondents.Minority respondents in general feel that white Americans have gotten more, economically, than they deserve. African-American (58 percent) and Hispanic (49 percent) respondents are more likely than white respondents (28 percent) to agree that white Americans have garnered more economically than they deserve. This disparity was not nearly as prevalent when respondents were asked about other races receiving more economically than they deserve.According to the results, one indication of differences in perceptions among races may be that many do not have close friends of other races. Hispanic (62 percent) and African-American (52 percent) respondents are more likely to strongly agree than white (41 percent) respondents that they can think of three close (non-family) friends of a race other than their own. People who live in the South (74 percent) and West (79 percent) are more likely to agree than those living in the Midwest (64 percent) or Northeast (65 percent) to agree.“In general, we also found that respondents who are younger and more highly educated are more likely to be accepting of different races, and to be comfortable with diversity,” Jefferts Schori said. “We recognize that youth and young adults, along with the faith community, are key to helping motivate substantive change in our society.” Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT November 12, 2013 at 11:21 pm I agree with Mr. Basta that the article is written in such a way that it doesn’t appear to acknowledge how far this country has progressed. I think many people would agree “that there is at least some discrimination in United States today.” However, this is a far cry from just fifty years ago, when segregation still existed, and fire hoses and police dogs were used on protestors. Spending money on a survey that tells us what the preponderance of Americans already know seems to be a misuse of precious funds in my opinion. If the study were to provide us with specific areas of society where racism is the most prevalent, that would at least seem to be useful if that information were followed up by strategies to promote change, and plans to implement those strategies. Otherwise, we are left with something that is void of any real substance or practical information (much like Mr. Huff Jr’s response to Mr. Basta).I agree that we should not overestimate how much progress we have made, but to not acknowledge how far this society has come in a relatively short time is to not understand where we actually are today. If we don’t know where we are today, then we don’t know how far we’ve come, and we can’t gage how far we need to go. We are not living in the 1950s and 60s. This is a dramatically different society. Yes, there is always more work to do, but can we at least take a breath and appreciate the progress that has been made? Or will we be doomed to constant hand wringing, never appreciating the progress that God has accomplished thus far? Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Albany, NY Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Jon Spangler says: Gordon May says: Rector Belleville, IL Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Smithfield, NC November 13, 2013 at 1:58 pm Really? This poll does not reveal anything new. Discrimination is unfortunately inherent in our being and something to fight against. We all discriminate in some form or fashion for good or ill. Replacing “racism” with “discrimination” is extremely disappointing. I wonder if there has been more push back than anticipated about the forum – 50 Years Later: The State of RACISM in America and therefore discrimination has been lifted up as a softball approach. Racism is different. Calling for a church wide forum on this difficult topic took an act of courage. Talking about discrimination is backpedaling away from racism. In 1994 the House of Bishops’ pastoral letter on racism identified it as “sin” and “evil”. Racism continues to exists because we are afraid to address it. Let us not move forward with a spirit of timidity but rather with courage and faith that God moves with us through the pain.

In Madrid-Sanchinarro the first residents received the keys to their apartments in the just completed Celosia building. Jacob van Rijs of MVRDV and Blanca Lleó have completed the social housing block near the Mirador Building, which is an earlier collaboration. The perforated block of Celosia assembles 146 apartments, communal outside areas throughout the building, and parking and commercial program in the plinth. The total floor area is 21,550 sqm. With a construction cost of 12,6 million Euro the apartments can be sold for affordable prizes. The city block is opened and allows wind and light to enter the building, offering vistas and outside spaces contrasting the surrounding area. The client is EMVS, the public housing corporation of the city of Madrid. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsJansenDoors – Folding and SlidingDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorDoorspanoramah!®ah! PivotDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewThe given volume of the city block was divided into 30 small blocks of apartments. These blocks are positioned in a checkerboard pattern next to and on top of each other, leaving wide openings for communal patios throughout the building. 146 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments are all accessed via these communal spaces. Most apartments offer additional private outdoor space in the shape of a loggia right behind the front door. Inhabitants have the possibility to gather in the communal high-rise patios which offer views towards the city and the mountains and provide natural ventilation in summer. Opening the front doors connects the private outdoor areas to the communal area. Save this picture!The façade is made of coated concrete which was from the ground floor up constructed in complete mould system, an efficient and clean way to cast concrete, keeping the construction cost to a minimum; an important asset for this social housing project. The polyurethane coating allows the façade to shimmer and reflect depending on the light condition. All windows are floor to ceiling height and can be shielded from the sun. Each apartment has the possibility of cross ventilation through two or three facades and enjoys views through the building and to the surrounding. A system of power efficient boilers is used in the building; solar panels on the roof heat water reducing energy consumption further. Save this picture!Underneath the building a parking garage on two levels provides 165 parking spaces. The ground floor offers room for 6 individual retail units. The nearby Mirador building which was completed by MVRDV and Blanca Lleó in 2005 also discusses the traditional building block by putting it vertical. The Celosia building is horizontally arranged around the interior court but opposes the generic introverted architecture in the area by bringing light and communal space into the building allowing a perhaps more extraverted Spanish lifestyle as every apartment opens up to a small plaza.Project gallerySee allShow lessSwitzerland Pavillion for Shanghai Expo 2010ArticlesUp to 35: Student Housing International CompetitionArticlesProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.
