14th September 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US Pennsylvania Pennsylvania iGaming applicants set to face luck of the draw Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Pennsylvania will open up online wagering with a “co-ordinated launch” that could come before the end of this year, although out-of-state iGaming licence applicants may have to rely on the luck of the draw to break into the market.The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) – which approved applications from Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino and Rush Street’s SugarHouse Casino earlier this week – have now given so-called Qualified Gaming Entities a window from October 15-31 to apply for a total of seven licences that remain available out of 39.Only two of the state’s 13 casinos – Lady Luck Casino and Meadows Racetrack – did not apply for any of the iGaming licences, while Presque Isle Downs and Casino only applied for slots and table games licences.There are three remaining online poker licences available, as well as two certificates each for online slots and online table games.The licences are available for $4m (£3.1m/€3.4m) – the same price that was offered to the state’s casinos during a 30-day period that followed a first phase in which casinos could have acquired all three licences for $10m. It is understood that one of the state’s casinos, which missed the deadline for the first phase, ended up agreeing to pay $12m for all three licences.Operators that are based outside the US can apply for licences in the window next month and if demand outstrips supply, a random draw will determine the successful applicants.PGCB communications director Doug Harbach told iGamingBusiness.com that the draw process would be “public”, although an exact format has not been decided yet.“Whether it will involve taking names out of a hat or a box, we don’t know yet, but everyone will be able to see what happens,” he said.Harbach, who said there had already been enquiries from firms based outside the state, also said that applicants for all three licences would not necessarily be favoured over those applying for individual licences.Of the 11 casinos to have applied for iGaming licences, five have now been approved, with Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino and Rush Street’s SugarHouse Casino following Harrah’s Casino Philadelphia, Mount Airy Resort Casino and Parx.Harbach said that it is likely that more applications from the state’s casinos will be approved by early October.“There’s still a lot of back-end work to be carried out by casinos and partners and we also have to licence partners of the operators,” Harbach told iGamingBusiness.com, when asked when iGaming would launch fully in the state.“We would like to do some sort of co-ordinated launch. It might not be all of them, but perhaps a batch of them who are ready to go.“We’re probably still at least a couple of months off that, but it is likely to happen if not towards the end of this year, then early next year.”In comparison with some other US states, Pennsylvania has accelerated attempts to exploit gaming opportunities before the end of the year, with Harbach citing a “myriad” of expansion initiatives in the industry, including in sports betting. However, Harbach insisted that such expediency is not at the expense of the due process and rigorous due diligence.“The state decided to expand our current gambling offerings to fill revenue holes and there is an expectation to do this as swiftly as possible,” Harbach said.“We have already secured $110m in iGaming licence fees and we are moving on with sports wagering pretty well.“However, we wouldn’t rush if that meant damaging the integrity of the new gaming market. We’ve always taken our role as protector of the public’s interests as first and foremost.”Image: Santeri Viinamäki Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling With seven iGaming licences remaining, applicants are set to face a random draw AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter

He fought for economic and social justice. He threw the money lenders out of the temple because they were taking advantage of the poor.”Samede expressed her gratitude for Christian support for Occupy London – including plans for a Prayer Circle to be formed around the camp on the day when eviction orders are finally issued (expected at the end of January).Campaigner George Barda said: “We are part of a global movement. If enough people are inspired, we have a chance of tackling global injustice issues. We have a system in which profit is put above development and the environment. Anything to do with values is way down the pecking order, so we are desperately trying to pick up the pieces caused by the institutionalized drive to maximize profit.“This is about establishing a global framework that will tackle poverty and injustice. I support the idea of compassionate revolution. This was Jesus’ message. He talked about turning the world upside down. We need to take power from the top and redistribute it to the majority on a compassionate basis.”Matthew Varnham, a resident who also acts as the campsite’s legal liaison, said: “We’re not saying we have the answer. This is all about encouraging people to have a discussion about what we want our society to look like and what we want our world to look like.“The Occupy movement represents an opportunity to really engage with issues in a way that hasn’t been available before. The momentum is here – we should make the most of it.”USPG Chief Executive Janette O’Neill explained that USPG is actively working with international church partners to tackle injustice and the poverty gap. “Whatever your view of Occupy, they are bringing important issues to the attention of society and the church,” she said. “In all of this, we pray that Christ’s message will be uppermost, urging us all to choose compassion and justice over greed.” Comments (3) Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector Columbus, GA Advocacy Peace & Justice, Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ

Elle est l’un des plus petits des 10 séminaires accrédités de l’Église épiscopale. Photo : Episcopal Divinity School[communiqué de presse de l’Episcopal Divinity School] L’Episcopal Divinity School (EDS) va cesser de délivrer des diplômes à l’issue de la prochaine année universitaire, a décidé le conseil d’administration du séminaire le 21 juin par un vote à 11 contre 4. Au cours de l’année qui vient, le conseil explorera les solutions possibles pour l’avenir d’EDS, dont certaines ont été suggérées par un groupe de travail intitulé « Futures Task Force » spécialement mis en place pour planifier l’avenir d’EDS.« Une école qui a défié le racisme, le sexisme, l’hétérosexisme et autres formes d’oppression de ce type est maintenant appelée à repenser son système d’éducation théologique dans un monde en constante évolution » déclare Gary Hall (promotion 1976), président du conseil d’administration, en présentant la résolution. « Mettre fin à des dépenses incontrôlables est une question de justice sociale ».Parmi les solutions suggérées au groupe de travail figurent la fusion avec un autre séminaire théologique, la création d’un centre d’études abrahamiques, la transformation en un centre de formation permanente, l’encouragement de ministères laïcs et l’utilisation des actifs du séminaire pour financer des bourses d’études de séminaristes qui se consacrent aux questions de paix et de justice.« Il est clair que si nous voulons que l’engagement spécial d’EDS envers la justice sociale et la pleine inclusion du peuple de Dieu dans notre vie commune soit durable, il nous faut agir rapidement pendant que le séminaire dispose encore d’actifs suffisants pour financer la prochaine étape de sa vie » poursuit Gary Hall. « En fait, le souci de sauvegarder les intérêts de toutes les parties concernées a été la principale raison pour agir dès maintenant. Nous disposons aujourd’hui de ressources adéquates pour la transition des étudiants, du corps enseignant et du personnel. Compte tenu des trajectoires financières actuelles, nous n’en disposerons plus dans cinq ans. Nous pouvons le faire correctement si nous le faisons maintenant ».Aucun membre du corps enseignant ou du personnel ne sera congédié au cours de la prochaine année universitaire et tous les étudiants, y compris la nouvelle et dernière promotion d’EDS qui arrive sur le campus le mois prochain, poursuivront leurs études jusqu’au diplôme, nous explique Gary Hall. « Ceci veut dire que nous conclurons un contrat avec un autre ou d’autres séminaires afin qu’ils acceptent nos étudiants avec toutes leurs crédits de cours et nous veillerons à ce que les étudiants ne fassent pas les frais de cette transition ».Bonnie Anderson, vice-présidente du conseil et ancienne présidente de la Chambre des députés de l’Église épiscopale a qualifié le vote de « moment triste mais rempli d’espoir ».« Nous comprenons que l’on soit peiné par cette décision » nous confie Bonnie Anderson qui s’est vue décerner un doctorat honorifique d’EDS en 2006. « C’est la fin d’une phase importante dans la vie d’une institution importante qui a incroyablement contribué à la vie de notre église. Mais en choisissant cette approche maintenant, nous sommes dans une position beaucoup plus solide pour assurer la pérennité d’EDS ».EDS, constituée en 1974 par la fusion de l’Episcopal Theological School de Cambridge et de la Philadelphia Divinity School, est l’un des plus petits des 10 séminaires accrédités de l’Église épiscopale et elle a depuis longtemps été confrontée à des défis financiers qui ont réduit sa dotation.« L’école s’affaiblit chaque jour davantage du fait de son déficit continu – la mission future de l’école perd environ 4 380 dollars par jour soit 133 000 dollars par mois » a écrit en mai dans un rapport au conseil Anthony Ruger, ancien maître de recherches au Center for the Study of Theological Education de l’Auburn Theological Seminary. « La viabilité à moyen et long terme d’EDS en tant qu’institution accréditée est véritablement menacée ». Les administrateurs ont la responsabilité tant fiduciaire que morale de veiller à ce que la mission d’EDS soit perpétuée, soutenue et renforcée ».Les investissements d’EDS sont actuellement évalués à environ 53 millions de dollars à quoi s’ajoute son campus. Plus de la moitié de la dotation est à affectation réglementée.Anthony Ruger qui est un expert en durabilité financière pour les écoles théologiques, a présenté de nombreux modèles au conseil, en suggérant que même une augmentation inhabituelle des inscriptions et des collectes de fonds, couplée à d’importantes coupes budgétaires, serait peu susceptible d’apporter une solution à long terme aux problèmes financiers d’EDS, laissant le séminaire dans une position progressivement plus détériorée pour trouver de nouveaux partenaires ou pour démarrer de nouvelles initiatives.« Nous pensons qu’il y a pour nous des façons nouvelles, audacieuses et innovatrices de promouvoir la mission de Dieu dans ce nouveau contexte et cette ère nouvelle » nous confirme Gary Hall. « Nous croyons également, pour que ces nouvelles opportunités deviennent réalité, que nous devons arrêter dès maintenant de mener certaines actions qui ne sont pas viables ».Lors de la réunion, les débats ont été intenses, avec Pamela Conrad, la représentante des étudiants et la Révérende Joan M. Martin, la représentante du corps enseignant, qui ont droit de parole mais n’ont pas droit de vote au conseil, faisant pression sur les administrateurs pour qu’ils adoptent un délai plus long pour la prise de décision et donnent plus de détails sur la forme éventuelle du processus continu de discernement.« La justice n’est jamais à vendre. Et la justice enregistre toujours un déficit de fonctionnement » déclare Pamela Conrad.Dennis Stark, le trésorier du conseil, a dit qu’il soutenait « avec enthousiasme » la résolution. « Nous dépensons chaque année six millions de notre dotation et 30 % de ce chiffre est supérieur à un montant raisonnable » a ajouté Dennis Stark.Le Révérend Frank Fornaro (promotion 1996), doyen par intérim et président d’EDS, a annoncé après le vote qu’il démissionnerait mi-novembre. « Je suis en total désaccord avec cette résolution » a-t-il dit.Gary Hall a confirmé que le conseil aurait parachevé les détails des plans d’enseignement pour la promotion en cours et de rémunération du corps enseignant au plus tard au premier jour de la rentrée, le 7 septembre.

Kyle, you can thank your mother-in-law, because she won it for you. You better treat her right, Kyle! Now Kyle will be one of our new city commissioners. Kyle, it is not going to be a piece of cake, I will assure you that. People will get mad at you sometimes justified, sometimes not. You cannot please everyone, that is for sure. I hope you have a thick skin, as you are going to need it. I kidded with you that your mother-in-law won it for you, but lets get real this morning. The mayor had all of these home owner groups unite together before the election, and you were appointed the facilitator official of the groups. Do you think that had any influence on all these newer homeowner subdivisions, Kyle? You didn’t campaign as hard as Commissioner Arrowsmith, or Pastor Bankson, although I’m sure you thought you did. You are a friendly guy no doubt, but you also ran as a team with the mayor, Commissioner Ruth, under Christine Moore, your campaign manager. So I see three packs, the campaign manager, the joint team, and the homeowners group that you were placed over, as an officer. You didn’t achieve all of this winning yourself, sorry. You can thank the mayor mostly. So you will know, Kyle. Now, don’t think that you can swoop in, and take over. It is not going to happen. I’ll try my best to accept you on the council, and will hope you make sane decisions, as everyone in this town are not big money people, Kyle. Tenita Reid April 12, 2016 at 7:51 pm I am going to say it again, give Mr. Cowles a break and lay off of him. The voting process went smoothly today, so let it be, and leave him alone.

There is more. He was the only commissioner in a position to benefit from his knowledge gained in that position. Uniquely.It’s a new day. That is good. Reply Please enter your name here Reply Reply Please enter your comment! Tenita Reid Pastor Bankson, I am happy to have you as our newly elected commissioner, I really am. I did have some concerns about you being a pastor, but I decided that being a pastor, does not mean that you don’t have the same rights as other people, so I voted for you. I have a lot of concerns about run away property taxes, and ways we are going to fund some of the projects on the table. I am not against the plan, but concerned over certain parts that might infringe on our way of life, and of course the costs. I hope you will be a watchdog with teeth, when it comes to spending our city’s money, as there are those who will stand right up there, calling for more taxes! They must be rich, I guess. I remember Mayor Land used to talk about our reserves would be just fine, that is, unless we had a mandate ordered by the state, that we had not counted on, and we have one now, the nitrate reduction demand, that has caused us to build additional wastewater facilities at a great cost. Then there is always the possibility of terrible storms living in Florida, that could devastate us. We don’t know what the future holds, but I am thankful you will be on board. Tenita Reid I have been involved in several different campaigns over the years, where the people, I have campaigned for lost, on some occasions. We still had a party. However, when the results came in, and everyone was hyped, it is so painful to learn of the opponent’s win. It always was a downer for me, and I was not the candidates who ran, so I can only imagine the pain they felt. We still had some good parties though, and made the best of it. One said that is the way the mop flops. So true. Reply April 12, 2016 at 9:25 pm Reply April 13, 2016 at 8:48 am Good morning, it is the day after the election and I am reading the Orlando Sentinel, page B2 of the local dated April 13, 2016, about the Apopka election. I can certainly understand Commissioner Arrowsmith. He ran a great campaign, as I stated before. Let’s face it, the man has so much experience over the years of being in office. He has seen all kinds of situations arise, and problems, he has handled. He has learned from doing. No one can take that away from him. No one. Also, Kyle was not even born, when Commissioner Arrowsmith started serving on the Apopka Council! So this is Commissioner Arrowsmith’s view, and it is the correct view. Should Commissioner Arrowsmith have shook Kyle’s hand after the defeat? Well, yes, he probably should have, but it was his call, and he declined to. I think Commissioner Arrowsmith took great offense to Kyle’s answer at the Cooper Sports building, at the debate, when Kyle’s answer to the exit of so many employees under the new Mayor downed former Police Chief Manley. I know I was offended also. That was uncalled for. That is my opinion. Commissioner Arrowsmith retalitated with some comments about the current Finance Director, and that too was uncalled for. These people’s careers should not have been put in a negative spotlight publicly because of politics. I guess I wonder why the question was even asked. I’m still proud to have supported Commissioner Arrowsmith and wish him and his family the best for the future, he is a good man, and loves this community, and will still be involved as ever.

Your plan is half shot down isn’t it? Becker shocks Arrowsmith in Seat #4 – Bankson prevails in Seat #3 in Apopka Run-off ElectionIf Apopka elections have proven anything over the past month it’s that they are unpredictable. In a surprising combination of outcomes, first-time candidates Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker defeated incumbent Commissioners Bill Arrowsmith and Sam Ruth in the runoff elections held today to decide Seats #3 and #4 of the Apopka City Commission.Becker overcame nearly a 900-vote defeat on March 15th to defeat Arrowsmith with 2,689 of the votes (55%), while Arrowsmith could only attract 2,206 voters to the polls to vote for him – less than half of the votes he received in the General Election.Becker was understandably shaken but excited by the results.“What a day,” he said. “I didn’t know what to expect. I’m overjoyed, happy, blessed and I thank the voters of Apopka.”Pastor Doug Bankson built on his March momentum to snatch Seat #3 from incumbent Commissioner Sam Ruth. Bankson received 2,707 (56%) votes, while Ruth fell short with only 2,170 (44%).Bankson was also excited, but feeling the effects of a long day and the roller coaster ride of the campaign.“I’m exhilarated and exhausted,” he said. “We left it all on the field. It was an absolute team effort. I want to thank the volunteers, and the whole team.”Despite the loss, Ruth was ever-upbeat and looking to the future.“I coached for 26 years,” he said. But I didn’t win every game for 26 years. You learn from your losses. These last three months were humbling. But you hear the questions asked to you by the voters and you realize you have to stop thinking as “I”. We that are elected are here for the good of the people…for the good of Apopka.”Mayor Joe Kilsheimer had praise for the two new commissioners-elect and thanks for the two sitting Commissioners.“The voters have spoken. Congratulations to Pastor Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker. I look forward to working with both of them to move Apopka’s agenda forward. I offer my thanks to Commissioners Arrowsmith and Ruth for their public service. Standing for election requires courage and commitment to our community. Both men have shown just how much they care about Apopka.”The unofficial results are available on the Supervisor of Election’s website.

Roth, a hog farmer from Wauzeka, Wisconsin. “Without federal assistance, we will lose more hog farmers and see our farm sector consolidate, limiting consumer choice and reducing what have been record production levels in recent years.”U.S. hog farmers are facing $5 billion in collective pandemic-related losses this year following two challenging years due to trade retaliation. NPPC is seeking the following provisions in a new COVID-relief package:compensation for euthanized and donated hogs;additional funding for animal health surveillance and laboratories, which have appropriately assisted and shared resources with their public health partners;modification of the Commodity Credit Corporation charter so a pandemic-driven national emergency qualifies for funding;additional funds for direct payments to producers without restriction; andextension of the Paycheck Protection Program with modifications to make it accessible to more producers.Roth added, “We appreciate previous relief extended by the administration and Congress to pork producers and other farmers. Unfortunately, it has not stabilized our farm sector; we need immediate action to offset the severe impact of COVID on a key element of the rural economy.”Source: National Pork Producers Council news release Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter
