Email Address Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Non-profit lottery operators in Denmark must now use the labelling scheme of the country’s Gambling Authority (Spillemyndigheden) when organising and marketing their games.From 1 April, operators are required to ensure that their licence status, using the regulatory’s logo, appears on their websites, at the entrance to points of sale and on any other relevant material.However, Spillemyndigheden symbols do not need to appear on lottery tickets.The regulator explained that these would ensure players were aware they were gambling via a licensed provider.“The brand must be easily visible to the participant, and the organiser must at all times use the latest published version of the logo provided by the Gambling Authority,” Spillemyndigheden said.“Please note that the brand must not be changed in design, proportions or colors. In addition, the mark must not be used in a way that gives the impression that the Gambling Authority is a co-organiser or sponsor of the non-profit lottery.”The rule changes are part of a suite of reforms that have come into effect in Denmark this year. The country introduced new marketing regulations, requiring operators to incorporate new information and links in their gambling marketing, also from 1 April.On 1 January, Denmark introduced mandatory deposit limits. Player gambling data must also be kept on file for at least five years, and licensees will be required to develop internal rules, process and staff training on responsible gambling.

He hit eight fours and five sixes in his 89-ball innings.By the end of the 40th over, the asking rate had risen to more than 16 an over and it was too tall a task for the New Zealand lower order. The New Zealand innings eventually folded for 330 in 47.2 overs.Pacer Carlos Brathwaite was the most successful West Indies bowler with figures of 3 for 61 from his eight overs.Earlier, West Indies batsmen sent the New Zealand bowlers, except for Trent Boult (4/50), to cleaners after being sent into bat.Hope first shared 84 runs for the second wicket with Lewis before stitching 48 and 43 runs with Darren Bravo (25) and Shimron Hetmyer (27) for the third and fourth wickets respectively.The 25-year-old Shai, who hit two centuries earlier this month against Bangladesh and Ireland during the Tri-Nation Series, continued his good form with yet another top-class performance.After Hope was out in the 36th over, captain Jason Holder (47) and Russell maintained the high scoring tempo with a 82-run stand from just 6.3 overs to take West Indies past 400.Coming out to bat at number eight, Russell, who had a phenomenal outing at the Indian Premier League ahead of the World Cup, was at his destructive best yet again as his 54 came from just 25 balls with the help of seven fours and three sixes.Carlos Brathwaite (24 runs off 16 balls) and Ashley Nurse (21 not out off 9 balls) gave the finishing touches in style with 34 runs between them from 3.2 overs before West Indies were all out for 421 in 49.2 overs.Brief Scores:West Indies: 421 all out from 49.2 overs (Shai Hope 101, Evin Lewis 50, Andre Russell 54; Trent Boult 4/50).New Zealand: (Kane Williamson 85, Tom Blunde 106; Carlos Brathwaite 3/75)Also Read: ICC World Cup 2019: South Africa Team preview Key player, full Fixtures and Squad,…ICC World Cup 2019: England Team preview Key player, full Fixtures and Squad, Strengths,…ICC World Cup 2019: Dale Steyn ruled out of CWC19 openerICC World Cup 2019: Nottingham to host first #CWC19 Fanzone!

As a leader, Flores says she feels responsible for other members of the community. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – San Salvador, El Salvador] One hundred eighty-nine families displaced by a natural disaster have laid claim to a narrow strip of land situated between the Pan-American Highway and a dozen abandoned, government-owned grain silos a 25-minute drive east of San Salvador.They live in shacks constructed of tin, mud, discarded construction materials and sometimes building materials salvaged from their previous homes. Heavy rains and mudslides caused by Hurricane Ida in 2009 washed away the ground and in some cases their homes out from under them. The people fled in the night as the storm gained strength and homes crumbled off cliffs into a ravine. A 2-month-old baby, her mother and grandmother were buried alive, along with an elderly man whose body went unrecovered.After the storm, the families, united by 36 years of living in community, decided unanimously to move to the abandoned strip of land, which lacked basic services – water, sanitation and electricity – thus joining a much larger population of 10,000 landless people living along the bustling highway. They called the community La Anemona, or “the anemone.”“We came here when we saw our land was disintegrating because, if there would have been a tremor or an earthquake, it would have destroyed our homes,” said Carmen Milagro Flores, a community leader. “This was the only unoccupied piece of land.”The people of La Anemona moved to this narrow strip of land between the bustling Pan-American Highway and an abandoned government grain-storage facility in 2009 after heavy rains and mudslides destroyed their hillside community. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceSome 2 million Salvadorans, a third of the country’s 6.1 million people, live in substandard housing in some 2,500 informal communities. They are people internally displaced by war, natural disasters, violence and economic hardship who have built shacks alongside roads and polluted streams, behind commercial shopping centers and on dangerous hillsides.For those who fled Ida’s effects, “This is the second time in their lifetime that they have been displaced,” said Noah Bullock, executive director of Foundation Cristosal. “The first time was during the civil war.”Foundation Cristosal is a human rights-based community-development organization with roots in the Anglican and Episcopal churches. It has worked with La Anemona to legalize electricity, introduce potable water, build a community center and, more recently, to start a savings-and-loan cooperative for women.“The case of La Anemona is emblematic of the historic displacement of the poor,” Bullock said. “Displacement and poverty have pushed the people toward the margins, forcing them to live in places unsuitable for housing, which keeps them vulnerable and prevents them from achieving stability in the basic things like where they live and how they make their livelihood.”In March, José Oswaldo Lopez, third from right, one of Cristosal’s lawyers, and community leaders from La Anemona met with David Rodriguez, left, a delegate of the FMLN party, to discuss legislation to legalize the land on which the people of La Anemona live. Photo: Foundation CristosalOwnership of the land would allow community members to focus on building more stable lives for their families, said Blanca Estella Herrera de Yanes, 26, who hopes to provide such stability for her daughters, aged 5 and 9.Without title to the land, she said, “We are usurpers.”Poverty in El Salvador, Bullock explained, is part of a broader system of social exclusion – a condition in which populations, by being excluded from exercising their equal rights in society, are in effect systemically denied equal citizenship. Rather than invest in projects dependent on continued aid, Foundation Cristosal seeks to strengthen the ability of the poor to act for justice and development as equal citizens in a democratic society.“In Anemona, the most important thing we have achieved is that the people and their government are talking,” he said. “The ultimate goal is the full recognition of the people as citizens of the state and their equal right to belong in El Salvador regardless of their situation poverty and landlessness.”From the beginning, Foundation Cristosal has stood with the people of La Anemona.“They were some of the first people that came, when we were most in need,” said Flores.Others came to help as well, including a church that purchased a plot of land elsewhere for the community without the community’s consent in an area that was isolated, lacking a road and basic services, said Jose Manuel Muñoz, a community leader who also has led the charge in legalizing the land.“That was when we decided to move forward with our action plan,” said Muñoz.“The constitution says that the property of the state is the property of the state, and we [as citizens] are part of the state,” he said, adding that bureaucracy prevents executing laws laid out in the constitution. “We deserve to live in a dignified way, in a dignified place.”In the 1980s, a civil war fought largely over socioeconomic inequalities and lack of human rights raged in El Salvador. Here, a man holds up a copy of the 1986 constitution, which guarantees many of the rights fought for during the civil war but that oftentimes still are not granted today. Foundation Cristosal is working with Salvadorans to continue the fight for equal rights. Photo: Foundation CristosalCommunity leaders, with the assistance of a lawyer and a community organizer working for Cristosal, have written letters, organized meetings and submitted a legislative decree requesting legalization of the land. The decree, however, sits idle.“The bill is in the assembly but has been archived, not voted on,” said Bullock. But he feels optimistic because the ARENA party made gains in the most recent municipal elections in San Martin, where La Anemona is located, and the FMLN party is looking to gain favor in advance of the February 2014 presidential election, he added. “Legalizing the land on which 10,000 people live would be a big political victory for them.”From 1980-1992, El Salvador suffered a brutal civil war fought between its U.S.-backed, military led-government and a coalition of guerilla groups, organized as the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, or FMLN. The war was fueled mostly by the gross inequalities that existed between a small group of wealthy elites who controlled the government and the economy and the majority of the population that lived in poverty. Communities today continue to align themselves with parties on the right and left, benefiting depending on which party is in power. The FMLN party holds the presidency.In cooperation with Foundation Cristosal, Bishop Martin Barahona of the Anglican-Episcopal Church of El Salvador has used his position to advocate for the community on legalizing ownership of the land and in negotiating the rights to water and electricity.Jose Mauel Muñoz, right, and Benjamin Perez, residents of La Anemona, stand on the rooftop of one of the abandoned homes in the community where they’d live for 36 years. Hurricane Ida forced the people to abandon their homes in 2009. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThe people of La Anemona are far from alone in being dislodged from their homes by hurricanes and other natural disasters. Worldwide, 34.2 million people were displaced by natural disasters in 2012. In Central America, 605,046 people were displaced by natural disaster in 2011, according to a report by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre and the Norwegian Refugee Council.In El Salvador, natural disasters displaced 90,362 residents between 2009 and 2011, according to data compiled by the monitoring center. More than 88 percent of the total land area in El Salvador is considered at risk of natural disasters, and 96.4 percent of the population lives in these at-risk areas, according to the United Nations Development Program.La Anemona’s people, say Flores and other community leaders, see themselves as victims of climate change. Since being forced to relocate, they have struggled to rebuild their lives and move beyond subsistence living.“After the storm, the people had little recourse and were forced to decide between living at risk of death by mudslide or risk of being ostracized for living without land rights as squatters,” said Bullock. “The community felt like foreigners in their own country.“With displaced people, the insecurity of place becomes a pathology and reinforces a sense of being less equal or having less rights than other Salvadorans. In a sense, displacement was a negation of full citizenship,” he said, adding that feeling insecure about housing perpetuates the cycle of poverty.Kite fighting is a popular pastime for young people living in La Anemona. Parents say one of the challenges of raising children in the community is keeping them occupied and out of danger. The community is located in an area controlled by one of El Salvador’s most dangerous gangs. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service“It has to do with stability and the ability of a family to project their future life path. If you don’t have the security that you’ll live in that spot for five or 10 years, you can’t have a long-term perspective. You live day-to-day, you don’t want to invest in your house or in things that you could potentially lose tomorrow.”Five people led the charge to claim the land along the highway, first surveying it and staking out 10-meter by 10-meter plots for each family. For 22 days, the leaders pounded their stakes and policemen pulled out the stakes and demanded to see a permit to be there.“We needed to show a permit that we didn’t have,” said Flores. “One day the policeman said, ‘I’m bored of seeing you,’ and I said, ‘I’m bored of seeing you.’ That’s how we went about building our shacks.”The leaders didn’t balk. Once the families had built the walls that would become their shacks, the policemen stood down and haven’t threatened to raze the community. Still, the residents live in fear, said Flores. Fear of being thrown off the land makes it hard to sleep at night, and, as one of the community’s leaders, she feels responsible for the others, she said.“We have faith in God that one day they’ll give us this land,” said Flores. “It’s not big, but we’ll take what we can get. It’s not safe to be on someone else’s land.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Apopka Police Department wants your help in the armed robberyThe Apopka Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that occurred at a local pharmacy in the early morning hours of August 8th.Apopka police officers responded to the Walgreens Pharmacy, at 125 East Main Street in Apopka, on Tuesday at approximately 2 AM in reference to a possible robbery. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the shift manager, who stated she observed two males running out of the store.According to security video, the two men proceeded to the rear of the store where the pharmacy is located. One suspect jumped over the counter where he made contact with the pharmacist. Later in the video, he reappears and jumps over the counter where he meets the other suspect who was waiting for him on the other side. Both suspects then ran to the front of the store where they exited.The pharmacist said he was in one of the medication aisles behind the pharmacy counter when he encountered the suspect. He said when he came out from the aisle, he was surprised by the suspect pointing a gun at him. He said the suspect threatened to kill him if he did not give him oxycodone and hydromorphone.The suspects were described as black males, one wearing a black zip up jacket, a white shirt underneath the jacket, blue jeans, and a red backpack. The other suspect was wearing a hoodie, a light brown backpack and grey pants (possibly jeans).The shift manager followed the two males out of the store, not aware of the situation, and contacted law enforcement due to her suspicion that they may have committed a retail theft.The APD is asking anyone with information about the robbery to contact the Apopka Police Department at (407) 703-1757.

All of those things add up.” Chancellor Victor Boschini said need-based aid will also increase by more than 4.9 percent.“We’ve done that for the past seven years,” Boschini said. “We’ve raised it by at least the same amount, but usually more.”Johnson said a “substantial” portion of the increase goes to financial aid. In addition,  TCU continues to works to strengthen its endowment.“The endowment, as we continue to grow it, gives us the opportunity to help students pay for their education,” Johnson said. “I’d love to see no student have debt in 25 years if we can get there.” In addition to the tuition increase, the board also discussed increasing enrollment and several construction projects.Increasing Student Enrollment  Johnson said at last spring’s Board of Trustees retreat the board approved increasing the full enrollment to 11,000 with 9,500 being undergraduate students. This will be done incrementally by adding 50-75 students in each incoming class over several years.“We’re not going to do that all at once,” Johnson said. “We want to be methodical about that.”The rise in students is not expected to boost classes sizes.Boschini said, as there is a limit of a 14:1 student to faculty ratio that keeps class sizes small. Boschini added the current student to faculty ratio is 13:1.Johnson said the board is sensitive to class size.“There is an environment here, a culture here, that we want to maintain and that’s the ability for students to be known as who they are by the professors and staff,” Johnson said. “If you build it too big you lose what I think is an attribute that really brings a lot of people to this university.”Construction PlansIn order to help house more students, the board approved construction plans for two new residence halls. Boschini said the new buildings will be in the Worth Hills area, facing the current Hayes residence hall, and will provide 301 additional beds in suite-style configuration. Construction is set to begin spring 2018 and open in time for the fall semester of 2019.“We want to have everyone on campus, that’s the ultimate goal,” Johnson said. “We have striven to reach freshman and sophomores, and I think we’re there. We’re full, but we’ve got some junior and seniors as well. We want to continue to move in that direction.” The board also approved plans for a new fine arts building which will include classrooms, design studios, testing and construction labs for textiles, archival storage for textiles, faculty and support offices, student study space and meeting rooms. Construction will begin February 2018 and is anticipated to be completed in time for use in the fall of 2019 semester, Boschini said.A School of Music performance hall will also be added on the east side of campus. Johnson said he thinks the performing hall will be a “statement” building on that side of campus. It will include a 700-seat performance hall and rehearsal rooms for orchestra, band and percussion. Other rooms include a green room, a dressing room for performers, offices and other individual practice rooms, Boschini said.“I think it’s going to be very appealing,” Johnson said. “It will serve a music program that has built a tremendous reputation around the country as being first class. We want to get them the facilities that they deserve.”The football stadium will also see an update in facilities as part of a construction project. The expansion calls for two new levels of luxury seating above the current upper deck and will include premium-level seating up to 1,500 seats and as many as 20 suites. Construction is targeted to commence May 2018 with completion prior to the start of the 2019 football season, according to Boschini.“From the pictures we’ve seen, it’s going to look very good,” Johnson said.Johnson also said the board talked about future plans for construction near Bellaire Drive that will include a new administration building and a restructuring of the Honors College to concentrate the area and provide more classrooms. He also said there were long-term plans to expand the Brown Lupton University Union.As for the financing of these projects, Johnson said some will be funded with university capital. Boschini added residence halls are almost always paid for by the university because the students end up paying for them.For the other construction projects, Johnson said there are fundraising stipulations in the resolutions so the construction can’t proceed until the binding commitments have been received.“So we will be raising money,” Johnson said.  “We’ve got a lot of work to do.”Medical School Johnson said TCU signed the final collaboration agreement with UNTHSC to work with them on the new medical school. They are also moving forward in the accreditation process, which Johnson said is “tremendous.”When first announced the school planned to take students in the fall of 2018; however, that plan has now been pushed back to the fall of 2019.“We moved it out from an accreditation standpoint to give everyone a little more time,” Johnson said.  World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution WATCH: Former Chief of Staff for Obama talks Trump administration, Democrats, liberal arts education TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Previous articleTCU uses legal ‘blocker corporations’ to strengthen endowmentNext articleMen’s basketball secures ‘ugly win’ in season opener against Louisiana Monroe, 83-73 Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Welcome TCU Class of 2025 ReddIt Elizabeth Campbell Elizabeth Campbell Linkedin Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.

New Delhi authorities allow Burmese news agency to reopen

first_img—————-18.04.07New Delhi police close down agency operated by Burmese refugeesReporters Without Borders today condemned the closure of the New Delhi-based Mizzima News Agency, which covers Burma and is run by Burmese journalists who are refugees in India. Police raided the agency’s premises on 16 April and closed it down on the grounds that it is located in a residential area where commercial activity is banned.“It is regrettable that the closure was not preceded by a warning,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The competent authorities should resolve this situation as soon possible so that Mizzima can resume operating. There is no need to point out how valuable the work of these refugee journalists is for the Burmese population.”Launched in 1998 as a non-profit entity, the agency is known for taking pro-democracy positions and for reporting human rights violations in Burma.Mizzima editor Soe Myint, who is currently in Calcutta acting as an interpreter for Burmese rebels being tried on charges of selling arms to Indians, suspects that the agency’s closure could be linked to the trial.“The local authorities know that, ever since our news agency was created, we have not devoted ourselves to any business activities,” he said. Other businessmen and companies installed in the same residential neighbourhood have not been forced to close. Reporters Without Borders hails today’s decision by the authorities in New Delhi to allow the Burmese news agency Mizzima to resume operations. After recognizing that its activities were exclusively journalistic, Municipal Corporation of Delhi deputy commissioner Deepak Hastir said it could reopen. Around 50 of the agency’s employees were demonstrating peacefully outside as he announced the decision. The agency’s location in a residential area where commercial activity is banned was the grounds cited by police for closing it down on 16 April.
