first_img The GB Gambling Commission has made licensees aware of an increase in suspicious activity reports submitted to the National Crime Agency (NCA). The UK’s current money laundering regulations came into effect in January 2020, and the increased suspicious activity reported to the NCA has prompted the Commission to call for stricter due diligence checks from operators. GC notes increase in suspicious activity reports during pandemic Topics: Legal & compliance Legal Regulation “Failure to do so may result in licensees committing a criminal offence.” Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter This includes monitoring transactions to customers in high-risk third countries such as Barbados, Cayman Islands, Cambodia and Senegal. Pakistan was recently added to the risk of high-risk countries by the UK government. These countries are considered to carry an increased threat of being used as a middle step in money laundering. Legal & compliance A statement from the bulletin read: “The NCA during COVID-19 pandemic has seen an increase in SAR submissions and it is vital that operators submit a SAR to the United Kingdom’s Financial Intelligence Unit (UKFIU) whenever there is knowledge or suspicion of money laundering or terrorist financing. The Commission notes that the threat of organised crime is increasing globally, meaning that operators should properly scrutinise the source of customer’s funds. Regions: Europe UK & Ireland Cryptoasset payments have also been flagged as high risk with regards to money laundering. Operators have been asked by the Commission to remain on alert, as the number of Bitcoin and crypto scams are expected to rise in the next few years according to the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service. 1st June 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui Tags: Gambling Commission Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Coming in its latest emerging risks bulletin, the Commission noted that the NCA had recieved more suspicious activity report submissions during the Covid-19 pandemic. last_img read more

first_img Ready for battle: The Lions management pose for photos ahead of New Zealand Warren Gatland named his 41-man Lions squad amid feverish anticipation now the dust has settled, what does it tell us about he squad and the threat of the opposition? S Hogg, G North, B Te’o, R Henshaw, L Williams, J Sexton, C Murray; B Vunipola, S Warburton, T Faletau, M Itoje, G Kruis, T Furlong, J George, J McGrathReps: D Cole, K Owens, M Vunipola, AW Jones, CJ Stander, R Webb, O Farrell, E Daly A front-five of to fear?For all the flicks, feints and steps boasted by an All Blacks backline that offers the sumptuous skills of Beauden Barrett, Ben Smith and if he’s fit, Sonny Bill Williams, the Three Test series is likely to be decided in the tight five. Sir Graham Henry, speaking to BBC 5Live, alluded to as much. While saying the tour ‘The most difficult tour in the history of the game”, he spoke with barely disguised respect, at the power and strength available to Warren Gatland.Right handful: It took three All Blacks to stop Tadhg FurlongTadhg Furlong and Jack McGrath gave New Zealand front-row a torrid time in Chicago and Dublin, and if Steve Borthwick unpicks  the Kiwi lineout with Saracens Jamie George, Maro Itoje and George Kruis, the Lions could well prosper in the set-piece and tight exchanges. If there are injuries to Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick, the Kiwi lock pool isn’t that deep to think it couldn’t be exploited.Dark horses for the TestsThe names that drew most oxygen from the room at the squad announcement were Jared Payne, Ross Moriarty and to a lesser extent, Ben Te’o. Anyone who saw Moriarty smashing those with reputations far greatest than his own last summer in New Zealand, will know he’s not there to make up the numbers. Payne, a former New Zealand U21 player, knows his brethren better than most and his defensive organization and cool head in midfield or at full-back may inveigle his way into the Test reckoning before the end of the Series.Young buck: Ross Moriarty will fear no one in New ZealandWith Johnny Sexton and Owen Farrell potentially fighting it out for the No 10 berth, the powerful Worcester Warrior could well be employed to do the role Jamie Roberts performed with aplomb in 2009 and 2013. Jeremy Guscott, a fair arbiter of centre play, thinks Te’o has the tools to inflict serious damage on the unsettled All Black midfield.Opening salvos are firedWarren Gatland played his diplomatic role very adroitly at the launch, straight-batting questions, yet answering earnestly enough so as not to slip in cliché territory, yet he’s been known to throw the odd verbal grenade on occasion. Straight out of the traps, however was New Zealand coach Steve Hansen, a self-avowed known curmudgeon, who expressed surprise that Dylan Hartley – long thought to have been a outside-bet for squad selection – was omitted for his leadership qualities.Holding court: Steve Hansen chats to the press after the Lions squad announcementHe went on with a thinly-veiled dig about the lack of sophistication of Gatland coaching methods. “It’s pretty much what you’d expect from Warren. He likes his big ball carriers in the middle of the park and his big, grunty forwards so that’s what he’s picked.” It was hardly ringing-praise of his coaching abilities. Over to you, Warren…Aerial bombardmentAnyone who watched Beauden Barrett peppering the wide-channels with perfectly executed kicks for the Hurricanes against the Brumbies this morning, will know that any of the Lions’ back three positioning and alertness to the high-ball will have to be on the money.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Watch the skies: Cory Jane takes a lofted ball for the HurricanesAaron Cruden, the All Blacks’ deputy playmaker at 10 is also a fan of the cross-kick, so threat will be for 80 minutes. At the last count, there were nine backs selected who have played at No 15  in their career and why Jack Nowell and Liam Williams, both brilliant in the air, may be called into action on a regular basis.Midfield make-upThe commonly held assumption before selection was that Johnny Sexton and Owen Farrell would play at No 10 and No 12 but the fact they’ve been pitted together as tens, suggests Gatland wants to see them battle it out, with the option of playing Farrell at 12 in his arsenal.Battle royale: Beauden Barrett could be going head-to-head at fly-halfOn paper, Sexton’s understanding with Murray would give him the edge, given the game-time they’ve enjoyed, leaving Farrell as a first-class replacement at either 10 or 12 in the game’s final quarter. Again, the understanding forged by Sexton and Te’o, or Henshaw for periods at Leinster – both water-tight in defence and a handful in attack – could be pivotal when decision-making under duress.Know your enemyA proud Waikato-boy, no one has to tell Warren Gatland what the game means to your average New Zealander. Unlike Sir Clive Woodward, who endured a thoroughly miserable tour with Alistair Campbell-in-tow, scowling from the sidelines.Not a happy tour: The Lions were punished in New Zealand under Sir Clive WoodwardGatland has already talked about how important it is to understand the Kiwi psyche by immersing themselves into the local culture by watching their films, doing their homework on New Zealand and tourists replying within the Marae (a Maori meeting place), to locals songs with words of their national tongue. Visits to see local schools, colleges and landmarks, will all go some way to disarming the most passionate of Kiwi fans.Lions XV for the first Test            last_img read more

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsText description provided by the architects. After living in his own aluminium manufacturing factory in a congestion of Surat Thani, the client searched for a spacious and nature-surrounded location for his vacation house. The result was the 167-meter-long and 75 meters-wide site surrounded by beautiful Palmyra palms, at the meander of the longest river in southern Thailand – Tapi River. That was the beginning of Baan Nai Bang project. The Perception of Flat Land and the River Due to its west-facing, flat site at the meander of the Tapi River which gives the site an expansive panoramic view of 165-meter-wide of the river, the architects enhanced the uniqueness of the surroundings as well as designed this one-storey vacation house. For master planning, the Baan Nai Bang was placed parallel to the flow of the river. While, the landscape architecture was designed to be exceedingly flat to the horizontal line. Both were meant to create an extensive sensation of the space and consistency between the river, the land and the house, as well as to bring the atmosphere of the surroundings into the house. Save this picture!DiagramMoreover, the landscape architecture was designed as layering, yet based on horizontal line, to divide different areas, started from the first layer of the land to the last layer – the river. Began with the living layer, the wooden layer, the stone layer, the artificial water layer, to natural water layer – the Tapi River. These different layers were defined by particular materials and plants, no vertical boundaries like walls or fences. Similarly, the house’s plan was an open-plan, which all services were located at the back of the house, to creating spacious interior for the front of the house and to increase the connection to the river. However, the architects concerned about the local context. Since boats were main transportation for Thai people, especially those living along the rivers, it meant people could paddle a boat along the river and looked through the borderless house. Consequently, creating privacy to the house became one of the priorities. Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooInstead of placing a fence at the end of the land which would block the panoramic view, the architects designed huge sliding grilled panels, made from various sizes of leftover teak, which allowed the client to slide the panels when he needs privacy. Besides, these panels could block the strong sunlight from the west to penetrate the house. Save this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooSave this picture!© Chalermwat WongchompooProject gallerySee allShow lessIT IS A GARDEN / ASSISTANTSelected ProjectsCOOOP3 / Domino ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Thailand “COPY” CopyHouses•Bang Bai Mai, Thailand Save this picture!© Chalermwat Wongchompoo+ 22 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/867578/flat-scape-house-ekar Clipboard 2016 “COPY” Photographscenter_img Architects: EKAR Area Area of this architecture project Flat Scape House / EKAR

It has enrolled with the business startup accelerator Y Combinator to learn how to use this money to scale up and increase its impact.In one weekend at the end of January the ACLU received $24 million in donations following its efforts to overturn President Trump’s executive order than barred entry to the country to seven predominantly Muslim countries. This represented, according to TechCrunch, “six times its average yearly online fundraising average in just a few days”. The large sum was boosted by donations from tech company leaders and public figures who offered to match donations. $24m in a weekend: what ACLU did next Y Combinator and nonprofits?A nonprofit turning to a business accelerator is unusual, not least because such organisations are focused on driving growth by for-profit companies. It is far from unprecedented though. Plenty of nonprofit leaders are focused on the need to grow rapidly to achieve massive impact, and recognise they can learn from the for-profit startup sector.Y Combinator supported its first nonprofit in September 2013. Watsi joined its Winter 2013 cohort.In return for their support and development an accelerator will require an equity stake in the company. Given that ACLU is a nonprofit this does not and can not apply. Indeed, Y Combinator is providing some funding to ACLU: the nonprofit itself is not paying to secure the highly sought after place on the programme.When it supported Watsi, Y Combinator clarified that:“the money we’re putting into the nonprofits will be a charitable donation, rather than an investment in the narrow sense. We won’t have any financial interest in them.”Indeed, many alumni of Y Combinator themselves reacted quickly and positively to Y Combinator’s President Sam Altman’s announcement that it would help ACLU: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8center_img  111 total views,  1 views today Read Is it time for an incentive prize like X Prize for fundraising?Should more charities seek venture investors and accelerator support when they secure large sums from campaigns? Or is the ACLU windfall an unusual one-off opportunity? In addition, in September 2016 Y Combinator announced that it would be recommending Brent Hoberman’s Founders for Good programme to its alumni and members. This organisation invites its members, all of them founders of companies, to pledge to donate at least 2% of the personal proceeds of any future sale or acquisition of their company to social or charitable causes.  Y Combinator will offer the ACLU staff training, mentorship, and access to its connections in technology, business and finance. It will also get a chance to present itself to investors on the final ‘Demo Day’.Training might cover management techniques, recruitment skills, technology investment skills, and how to market itself to secure and retain donors and achieve its goals.It will even waive the requirement for staff to visit Silicon Valley to attend its programme. Instead, Y Combinator staff will visit ACLU at its New York headquarters.Y Combinator is evidently on the look-out for other startup organisations, including nonprofits, that can have an impact on improving democracy.  About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgTaken from a Sept. 23 audio recording on prisonradio.org.It has been over a generation since the U.S. Senate hearings on the sexual harassment charges of a law professor, Anita Hill, against then judge, now Supreme Court justice, Clarence Thomas.A lot has changed since then.Or has it?The French have a saying, “Plus ca change,” or “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”The charges now poised against a sitting judge, and possible justice, Brett Kavanaugh, by a psychology professor, Dr. Christine B. Ford, of sexual assault over 30 years ago, show us that things have changed very little.For power remains a mostly male prerogative, and women, unless they act as man-like as possible, are, more often than not, treated like children: seen and not heard.For at the nexus between law and power lies the courts, one of the last, mighty bastions of male power.The remarkable #Me Too movement may have enormous power in the realm of culture (think Hollywood), but law remains a largely (white) male preserve.Still.Women, the majority of the U.S. population, are not the majority of political leaders, don’t earn the highest incomes and aren’t paid wages equal to men.In other words, their power is quite limited.They are, however, the highest number of law students in the country, so that day is coming when they will dominate the field.But not today.Man power still reigns in politics and law, and unless I miss my guess, in the next few days, we shall see Brett Kavanaugh don the dark robe of a junior justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It had been his fervent plea to the Constituent Assembly that the Directive Principles of State Policy in Part IV of the Constitution must be made to override the Fundamental Rights in Part III of the Constitution. This was however turned down. Referring to Indira Gandhi’s election case, Justice Nariman noted that four of the minority judges from the Kesavananda Bharati case had to apply the Basic Structure Doctrine; the very doctrine that they had rejected. This was done in order to do away with a particular Article which said that in essence, the Prime Minister and the Speaker are above the law.”Justice Chandrachud, this time speaking for the five judges in a separate opinion, said that this would be an outright negation of the rule of law, the rule of equality; it would be a completely arbitrary use of power.”Also Read : Constitution Founders Attempted A Radical Transformation Of Society Which Was Based On Caste & Patriarchy : Justice D Y Chandrachud Justice Nariman further remarked that the most interesting aspect of the Indira Gandhi Election case was that it was one of the first judgements which presaged the facet of arbitrariness, other than the facet of discrimination. Commenting on the Minerva Mills case, another one of Chief Justice YV Chandrachud’s judgments, Justice Nariman underlined its importance: “Minerva Mills is important from many points of view. The obvious one is that Fundamental Rights are as important as Directive Principles of State Policy. Earlier judgments had said that Fundamental Rights were supposed to be given precedence. But, Minerva Mills, for the time, refers to a balance that must be maintained. Justice Chandrachud beautifully held that this balance was the basic structure of the Constitution and disturbing the balance would disturb the harmony. We have to thank him for his means and ends analysis, which is of crucial importance in understanding the difference operation of a Fundamental Right and that of a Directive Principle of State Policy.” Justice Nariman then iterated Chief Justice YV Chandrachud’s empathy for criminal law which could be discerned from the Gurbaksh Singh Sibbia case which laid down the law of anticipatory bail; he had stated that anticipatory bail must be left judges who had the experience to take a wise decision. Justice Nariman proceeded to share a funny incident with the audience regarding the Maharao Bhim Singhji case wherein for the first time the Constitution Bench had struck down a Section of an Act which was otherwise put into the Ninth Schedule. “All five judges had struck down Section 27(1) of the impugned Act. There were other Sections which had also been struck down, but Section 27(1) had been struck down without any reason. Justice Krishnya Iyer said that he had agreed with Justice Chandrachud and struck it down. Justice Chandrachud said that he agreed with Justice Iyer and had struck it down, So, none of us know on what basis Section 27(1) was struck down. This is one of the biggest conundrums.” Justice Nariman concluded the webinar with Mark Antony’s quote from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar where Antony had stated, “Here was a Caesar; whence comes such another?” “12th July also happens to be Julius Caesar’s birthday. He was born on this day exactly 2100 years ago. Chief Justice YV Chandrachud was born a 100 years ago. So, to end this tribute to a very great man, one can only say, ‘Here was a Caesar; whence comes such another?’ Thank you very much.” On that note, the event came to an end.  Watch Video:Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgiStock Photo/deberarr(NEW YORK) — Longtime Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown died late Friday.He was 86 years old.In January, Brown announced that he would not seek re-election and step down on June 1, “due to increasing health problems associated with Parkinson’s Disease,” according to a statement from Queens Chief Assistant District Attorney John M. Ryan.Brown was first appointed Queens County District Attorney in 1991 by then-Governor Mario Cuomo and stayed in office for nearly 28 years. He was re-elected to six terms, Ryan’s statement said.Brown’s office prosecuted a number of high profile New York City cases, including that of several police officers who shot Sean Bell, an unarmed black man who was killed after his bachelor party at a Queens strip club, which resulted in no convictions.Most recently his office prosecuted and won a conviction against Chanel Lewis for the 2016 murder of Karina Vetrano, a 30-year old woman who was beaten, sexually abused and strangled while jogging near her home in Howard Beach, Queens.Brown is survived by his wife Rhoda, and their three children.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
