F1 noted that points accumulated in the esports tournament would not go towards scores for the actual F1 season.“We are very pleased to be able to bring some light relief in the form of the F1 Esports Virtual GP, in these unpredictable times, as we hope to entertain fans missing the regular sporting action,” F1’s head of digital business initiatives and esports, Julian Tan, said.“With every major sports league in the world unable to compete, it is a great time to highlight the benefits of esports and the incredible skill that’s on show.”Meanwhile, F1 has announced that its Azerbaijan Grand Prix will not take place as planned on 7 June, due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus.Officials from the Baku City Circuit said the postponement was agreed after talks with F1, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile and the Government of the Azerbaijan Republic.The Baku City Circuit said in a statement: “This comes as a direct result of the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic and has been based entirely on the expert guidance provided to us by the relevant authorities.”Azerbaijan becomes the eighth race of the year to be postponed or cancelled, after the Australian, Bahrain, Vietnam, Chinese, Dutch, Spanish and Monaco Grands Prix.The next event after the Azerbaijan Grand Prix is the Canadian Grand Prix, which, at present, is scheduled to take place on 14 June at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montréal.

DSbV calls on payment providers to stop igaming transactions

DSbV calls on payment providers to stop igaming transactions

first_img German gaming machine operator association Deutsche Spielbankenverband (DSbV) has called for payment providers to stop processing illegal gaming payments and for an end to “incoherent case law” around online gambling in the wake of the Wirecard scandal.DSbV chief executive Otto Wulferding pointed out that Wirecard, which filed for insolvency after announcing that €1.9 billion supposedly held in its accounts “may not exist”, was heavily involved in online gambling in Germany.“With Wirecard, the topic of monetary transactions for companies such as online casinos is of high importance,” Wulfdering said.Wulferding added that it was a positive development to see that Visa and PayPal have both stopped their involvement with online gaming operators.“It is to be welcomed that Visa, for example, no longer wants to process deposits and withdrawals for currently illegal gaming providers in Germany,” he said. “Online casinos without a German licence are evading the regulatory framework in Germany.“They do not meet the requirements that apply to licensed casinos, which allows customers to carry out their bets and thus deposits and withdrawals safely and reliably.”In addition, Wulfdering called for an end to what he described as “incoherent case law” surrounding online gambling. Currently, German states are discussing a potential transition period that would allow operators to continue to offer online casino before the vertical is legalised in July 2021.The discussions are taking place ahead of the implementation of the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV) from 1 July 2021, which is currently being considered by the European Commission and expands the online market beyond sports betting for the first time.These discussions arose after a legal challenge in the state of Hesse, which saw proceedings suspended, allowing the two parties to negotiate a compromise agreement, in an unnamed operator’s appeal against a prohibition order issued by the Regional Council. Prior to this, operator body the Deutscher Sportwettenverband had called for such a period.Payment service providers are legally obliged to refrain from making payments in connection with unauthorised gambling. Should they fail to comply with these regulations, they risk being banned from operating in Germany.Niedersachsen, granted the power to issue blocking orders to payment providers for all of Germany, issued its first payment blocking order in June 2019 to an unnamed company, thought .Although the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) criticised this decision and called for a “fundamental rethink” of enforcement of gaming regulations, Niedersachsen’s Minister of the Interior and Sports Boris Pistorius warned in February of this year that “further prohibition orders are expected to follow”.In April, Niedersachsen issued a prohibition order to another payment provider.However, with the new Fourth State Treaty on Gambling set to take effect on 1 July 2021, two Freie Demokratische Partei (FDP) state MPs in Niedersachsen questioned whether the state government’s measures were necessary in June.

Investors are feeling anxious as they worry about the prospects of a next stock market crash. A second wave of Covid-19 appears to be washing across Europe before the first one has even passed. The FTSE 100 is perilously close to dipping below 6,000 again. Should you be worried?The pandemic has triggered a massive economic shock. We’re living through the fastest GDP contraction in history.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…History shows that in a bear market you often get more than one crash. It happened during the financial crisis in 2008. Investors were just beginning to relax when along came stock market crash part 2.The FTSE 100 could fall furtherIt could happen again. Millions of jobs are disappearing. The shock will be felt in October, when government furlough schemes end. If that combines with an upsurge in infections, sentiment could crash and the stock market may follow.At the Motley Fool, we believe a crash is the ideal time to trawl the stock market for bargain shares. You can pick up top FTSE 100 stocks at bargain prices, as good companies get sold along with the bad.This leads to a tricky question though. If a crash is a good time to buy shares, should you hold off until the market falls again?If only if it were so easy. The big problem is that a stock market crash is almost impossible to predict. If you hang around waiting for one, you could be waiting years. During that time, share prices could rise higher and higher, leaving you cooling your heels on the sidelines.Don’t wait for stock market crash 2Also, you won’t earn any dividends in that time, and this is what really turbo-charges your long-term returns.Buying in the middle of a stock market crash is also fraught. As we saw in March, many people held off, expecting share prices to go lower and lower. The truth is that you’ll never time the bottom of the market perfectly.I think the best thing you can do right now is feed money into the market, whenever you have a little to spare. Remember, the FTSE 100 is more than 20% below its January peak of 7,674. So you’re already buying shares at bargain prices today.Many stocks have fallen more than 50% in the stock market crash so you may be getting an even bigger discount. I’d look for companies with strong balance sheets, steady revenues, loyal customers, and minimal debt. That should give them the strength to survive whatever the pandemic throws at us, and ultimately benefit from the recovery. A dividend at some point would also be nice.I would go shopping for bargain shares today. If the stock market crashes again, I would buy more shares at the new lower price.Then stay invested for the long term and reinvest all your dividends. That will build the wealth you need to get rich and retire early. Enter Your Email Address Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!

Wales 12 Argentina 26: The Verdict

Wales 12 Argentina 26: The Verdict

first_imgNOT FOR FEATURED No way through: George North is stopped by a solid Argentina defence. Wales continually failed to cross the gain-lineBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellWARREN GATLAND’S mantra is paying off for Argentina – but not Wales.  Gatland has long said that Wales can only get better by playing the best in the world – New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. While they’ve been doing that every year, they are still achieving success in peaks – followed by troughs. The Pumas, though, have clearly benefited from playing in the Rugby Championship and the intensity they brought to Cardiff allowed them to dictate the game. They scored two tries to none – Juan Imhoff and Gonzalo Camacho crossing – and eased to victory in the second half.Opening act: Juan Imhoff runs in his tryKey momentImhoff’s 55th-minute try, where the wing scythed past Sam Warburton, George North and Leigh Halfpenny to score under the posts, lifted Argentina’s spirits and they never looked back. From that point on, they lifted the intensity, added another try and made Wales – the Grand Slam champions – look distinctly average.Star manPumas captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe was the official Man of the Match – it’s hard to think of a time when he hasn’t produced a world-class performance – but Camacho’s finish just before the hour deserves high praise. He showed great athleticism, balance and awareness to put the ball down in the corner as Halfpenny came in to tackle him into touch.Room for improvementWales could improve in every facet. Jamie Roberts had to depart after a nasty blow to the head in the 24th minute and after that Wales struggled to cross the gain-line. Toby Faletau aside, they need to find some ball-carriers before Friday’s game against Samoa. Ryan Jones being fit would help them in this area – he always makes yards – while North and Alex Cuthbert should be used more on the angle in midfield.Happy day: Argentina celebrateThey also need to be patient in going wide. There’s no point spreading the ball unless you’ve gone forward – make yards in midfield and then use the wide men. Mike Phillips tried to do this when he arrived midway through the second half.A final point for Wales: start playing from the first minute not the 75th. Wales’ best passage of play came in the last five minutes and they put Argentina under serious pressure in their own 22 – but they need to replicate that intensity throughout the game. It all came too little, too late in this Test match.As for Argentina, their involvement in the Rugby Championship has clearly agreed with them but they should play with a little more confidence. It was only after they scored the first try that they really upped the tempo and lifted their heads. After that try they never looked like losing. Before it, Wales looked like winning. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Tries: Imhoff, Camacho. Cons: Sanchez 2. Pens: Contepomi, Sanchez. DG: Sanchez 2.Referee: Romain Poite (France) In quotes – winnersArgentina coach Santiago Phelan: “We took the initiative in the first half and in the first 20 minutes of the second half played very well. The intensity of the game was very high but the Argentina players have learnt how to play at that level from the Rugby Championship.”In quotes – losersWales interim coach Rob Howley: “I’m disappointed, frustrated and annoyed. We know we’re a better side than that. We spoke about intensity and the tempo of the game but we looked one-paced. It’s a test of character now – it’s important we dust ourselves off and look forward to the challenge of Samoa.”Top statsArgentina made nearly double the amount of offloads as Wales – seven to 13 – and made five clean breaks to none from Wales.Match highlightsWALES: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Scott Williams, Jamie Roberts (James Hook 24), George North; Rhys Priestland, Tavis Knoyle (Mike Phillips 56); Gethin Jenkins (Ryan Bevington 69), Matthew Rees (Richard Hibbard 63), Aaron Jarvis (Paul James 63), Alun Wyn Jones (Rob McCusker 40), Ian Evans, Josh Turnbull, Sam Warburton (captain), Toby Faletau.Pens: Halfpenny 4.ARGENTINA: Juan Martin Hernandez (Horacio Agulla 46); Gonzalo Camacho, Gonzalo Tiesi, Felipe Contepomi (Joaquin Tuculet 14), Juan Imhoff; Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo (Nicolas Vergallo 67); Marcos Ayerza (Bruno Postiglioni 79), Eusebio Guinazu (Agustin Creevy 49), Juan Figallo (Juan Gomez 67), Manuel Carizza, Juan Francisco Cabello (Tomas Vallejos 65), Leonardo Senatore (Tomas Leonardi 57), Juan Martin Leguizamon, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (captain).last_img read more

Autumn International player analysis: Anthony Watson, England

Autumn International player analysis: Anthony Watson, England

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Lurking in the tramlines, Watson closes off the angle and picks off Jason Emery’s pass. It is far from a fluke – more an astute defensive read.Take a look at this from England Saxons’ tussle with the Irish Wolfhounds from January:Here, Watson does not panic and rush up, though it may be tempting to blitz given that Wolfhounds left wing Craig Gilroy has joined the line. Instead, he treads water, co-operates with outside-centre Matt Hopper and drifts towards the final attacker.Then, as the pass is spilt by Gilroy, he is in a perfect position to tear through onto the loose ball.Lancaster’s calls these kind of plays “something from nothing” moments. He values the innate ability to produce them. Calm footballing nous is another weapon in Watson’s armoury.Composure in open spaceBath’s battering of Bordeaux-Begles last season catapulted Rokoduguni into the spotlight. The Fijian tank soldier’s brace really caught the imagination, even if the French visitors looked disinterested at times. Whatever the opposition’s attitude, Watson’s early assist for Tom Biggs oozed class:While the speed is again impressive, his transfer of the ball into two hands before a dummy right and a short pass left is exceptional.Another view accentuates eye-catching decision-making and creativity:England must capitalise on line breaks against Heyneke Meyer’s men. This sort of clinical edge could prove vital.Defensive solidityOf course, England fans are dreaming if they think the whole of Saturday will be spent on the front foot. Smarting from a comprehensive loss to Ireland, the Boks are sure to charge out of the blocks. Do not make the mistake of thinking Watson will shirk defensive duty.Picture the scene: a year ago at a sodden Sixways and Worcester are already fighting for every point in anticipation of a relegation battle. The conditions do not suit Bath’s fast-paced approach, so old-fashioned grit is required. Watson stepped up admirably. For a start, he had no right to make this stunning, try-saving tackle:Dean Hammond goes high in contact, so this is a straight-up test of upper-body strength. Using the small in-goal area and the touchline to his advantage, the tenacious Watson wins. Minutes later, his positioning got Bath out of trouble again:Second-guessing an opponent as intuitive as Chris Pennell is a triumph in itself. Isolating the moment Watson swoops to pick up off his bootlaces, we can appreciate the significant skill:With Pennell in close attendance, Watson bravely comes forwards and cleans up without breaking stride.Such unfussy details may be more prominent than box-office attack in what could be an ugly arm wrestle as England look to stave off their fifth straight loss this weekend. Bryan Habana will certainly relish chasing kicks towards a two-cap rival. Bath flyer Anthony Watson makes his maiden Test start on Saturday against the Springboks. Though the mercurial wing is still 20, it feels as though this has been a long time coming. We chart his rise through the ranks STANDING IN front of the assembled press at Pennyhill Park last Thursday after being named in England’s match-day 23 to face New Zealand, Anthony Watson was asked what part of his potential Test debut he was most excited about. As it turned out, he had known the answer for quite a while.Beaming: Watson shares a joke with George Ford“Probably the anthems,” said the Bath wing, who starts this weekend’s clash with South Africa in place of injured clubmate Semesa Rokoduguni. “I’ve been looking forward to this day since I was five or six years old to be honest.”To someone unfamiliar with Watson’s charmingly innocent, grin-a-minute demeanour, these comments may seem laced with a hint of self-entitlement – as though a precocious youngster has counted his chickens long before they hatched.However, much like his brother Marcus, a blockbuster lynchpin of Simon Amor’s England Sevens set-up, Anthony is humble and grounded. Besides, a path to a full cap in Saturday’s 24-21 loss to the All Blacks – only nine months out of his teens – has been totally inevitable.I first saw him feature in an U18 Daily Mail Vase final at Twickenham back in April 2011, where he was playing for St George’s College, Weybridge against Solihull School. Having built up a sparkling reputation as an age-group star in the London Irish Academy and for representative sides, Watson was marshalled closely. At one point, his frustration boiled over into a flash point and a bout of handbags.Solihull eventually won out 28-21, but not before Watson – sporting a hair-do dangerously close to a mullet – had torn past a handful of would-be tacklers late on to reduce the deficit:Defeat that day probably stung a great deal. However, it provided an ideal platform to reinforce Watson’s burgeoning ability as an arch-finisher. Later that month, national service called. He answered emphatically.Trailing 34-17 to their Welsh counterparts with 10 minutes remaining, England U18 pulled off a spectacular heist. Jack Nowell scorched home to complete a brace, before Sale centre Mark Jennings gave his team a sniff at glory. Then this happened on the final play:Hugging the right touchline, Watson shows composure to retain width and take the offload. Two explosive steps off his right foot give the covering defence little hope. But the try is as much a result of sheer instinct as it is bristling athleticism. We know that simply because Watson has kept scoring at every level.Predatory playStuart Lancaster’s tenure has been characterised by the swift promotion of youth. Owen Farrell and Joe Launchbury are two high-profile beneficiaries. Racking up four five-pointers in 21 appearances for Bath over the 2013-14 Premiership campaign, Watson earned a place on June’s senior tour to New Zealand. He repaid the faith by doing exactly what he does best in the midweek victory over the Crusaders:More searing pace and elusive evasion is obvious here. Taking a look at another view though, we see Watson’s work-rate and intelligent support play. He holds his depth while Stephen Myler and Chris Pennell join forces to create enough of a gap:As Julian Savea has demonstrated over a special start to his international career, if you hunt space, trust the playmakers and time your running lines nicely, tries will come.Watch how Watson combined with George Ford in the opening minutes of Bath’s current domestic season:Rising to take this cross-kick ahead of Italy’s Luke McLean, Watson shows off his aerial prowess – something that will no doubt be put to the test by Springbok fly-half Patrick Lambie this weekend. Put simply, he offers many different types of threat.Something from nothingEngland’s maiden Junior World Championship win in the summer hoisted the stock of many of its protagonists. Captain Jack Clifford, Luke Cowan-Dickie, Henry Slade and Nowell garnered the most praise. Even so, few interventions were as important as Watson’s intercept-score in the semi-final against New Zealand:center_img It should be fascinating. In any case, Lancaster can be absolutely confident that he has a mightily promising prospect among his ranks.To read in-depth analysis of New Zealand’s haka and RW’s verdict on England’s midfield problem, check out the December issue of Rugby World – in shops now!

This month, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) is teaming up with transportation and law enforcement organizations across the state to remind motorists of their responsibility to Share the Road properly with bicyclists, motorcyclists, commercial drivers, and all other road users in between, to keep our roads safe.“On average last year, there were nearly 280 crashes per week involving a motorcycle or bicycle in Florida, which truly underscores the importance of staying vigilant for all road users,” said FLHSMV Executive Director Terry L. Rhodes. “While their mode of transportation may differ from a typical vehicle, motorcyclists and bicyclists still have the right to share our roadways and the right to make it to their destination safely.”May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness MonthGovernor Ron DeSantis has proclaimed May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, recognizing the importance of reducing motorcycle fatalities in Florida. Motorcyclists and bicyclists are vulnerable road users that can be hard to see. By law, drivers must give bicyclists a minimum of three feet of clearance when driving alongside or passing them. Divers should never attempt to share the lane with a motorcycle – the motorcyclist is entitled to the entire lane. Preliminary in 2020, there were 8,583 motorcycle crashes and 6,013 bicycle crashes in Florida resulting in 2,687 serious bodily injuries and 668 fatalities.“All Floridians have the responsibility to drive safely and share the road properly,” said Colonel Gene S. Spaulding, Director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “Please remember, this includes sharing the road with commercial motor vehicles like semitrucks and staying out of the ‘No Zone’ blind spots on CMVs.”More StatisticsAccording to FLHSMV preliminary data, there were 36,784 crashes involving a Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver in 2020, resulting in 976 CMV driver serious bodily injuries, and 317 CMV driver fatalities. Large trucks do not maneuver like passenger vehicles. Drivers are reminded to stay out of the ‘No Zone,’ the blind spots in front, behind, and on both sides of commercial vehicles, and never tailgate. Always pass on the left for maximum visibility and watch for wide turns.“Trucks need approximately the length of two football fields to stop on the highway,” said President and CEO of Florida Trucking Association Ken Armstrong. “We encourage everyone to understand the ‘No-Zone,’ and keep a safe distance between you and other motorists when driving to ensure everyone gets home safely.”“With our great weather, hundreds of miles of beaches, and theme parks Florida is a year-round tourist destination. As you travel on our roadways, remember to ‘share the road’ with motorcycles, bicycles, and commercial vehicles so everyone can arrive alive,” said Sheriff Bobby Schultz, President of the Florida Sheriffs Association.“Many law enforcement officers also ride bicycles and motorcycles in the course of their duties, so we know the dangers those riders can face,” said Satellite Beach Police Chief Jeff Pearson, President of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. “On behalf of more than 900 law enforcement executives around the state, we ask all motorists in Florida to help us make our roads as safe as possible and Share the Road!”For more information on the Share the Road campaign, including safety tips and resources, please visit the FLHSMV website.

Alabama resists racist Cabinet nominee

Alabama resists racist Cabinet nominee

first_imgAlabama occupiers at Sessions’ Mobile, Ala., office.Two dozen members of the Alabama NAACP occupied the office of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 3. Protests were also held at other Sessions’ offices in Alabama. The NAACP actions kicked off resistance to the far-right-wing Cabinet proposed by president-elect Donald Trump.Sessions, the Republican senator nominated to be U.S. Attorney General, was rejected for a 1986 federal judgeship when former Justice Department colleagues testified to his racist comments and behavior when serving as U.S. district attorney in Mobile.His comments included calling the NAACP “un-American,” the Ku Klux Klan “OK” and stating that a white lawyer defending Black clients “betrayed his race.” (New York Times, Jan. 8)During the occupation, six African-American and white protesters were arrested, including Cornell William Brooks, national NAACP president, who said the occupation was “an act of civil disobedience standing in the tradition of Rosa Parks.”Bernard Simelton, Alabama NAACP president also arrested, stated the group would have acted even if Sessions had never made his statements. “He has not been a champion for civil and human rights.”This is an understatement about the political record and beliefs of Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, named like his father and grandfather for Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate slavocracy, and P.G.T. Beauregard, a Confederate general.Heinous segregationist historyBorn in Selma, Sessions was educated at then-segregated, all-white Wilcox County High School and all-white Huntingdon College. Wilcox County, with 72 percent African-American population, is still the poorest county in Alabama because of the economic consequences of enslavement and apartheid-like conditions that persist.Sessions has continued to hold to segregationist patterns, including hostility to the 1965 Voting Rights Act prohibiting racial discrimination at the polls, which he called as “an intrusive piece of legislation.”In 2013 a Supreme Court decision nixed a core provision requiring Justice Department approval to change election laws in places with discriminatory histories. In the Times article, Sessions called that “good news … for the South.” That meant in coded language “good for the white South.”Sessions’ attack on African-American voting rights was most dramatically revealed in his 1985 prosecution, as U.S. District Attorney, of the “Marion Three.” These were Black community activists tried for so-called “ballot-fixing.”One activist, Albert Turner, had been an adviser to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and one of the Selma marchers attacked by state troopers. Sessions’ case fell apart in trial as voter after voter testified to the activists’ innocence.Sessions has fought to keep additional state money from going to schools in poor districts. He has supported reviving chain gangs of Alabama prisoners. He has declared same-sex marriage a threat to “American” culture and gone to court to deny funding to LGBTQ student groups. He revealed his anti-woman bias when he said that Donald Trump’s videotaped boasts of sexual assault were not technically illegal.Sessions is OK with the Christian nationalist bias of an Alabama judge who illegally posted the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. Sessions is also OK with Trump “building a wall” against Latinx immigration and banning Muslims from entered the U.S.In 2015, Sessions was chosen as annual Keeper of the Flame by the Center for Security Policy, a Washington, D.C., think tank promoting anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.Wayne Flynt, professor emeritus in Auburn University’s Department of History, has followed Sessions’ career for decades. Flynt says, “His whole life, [Sessions] has been on the wrong side of every issue.” Senate hearings on nomination of Sessions to supervise “justice” as U.S. Attorney General began Jan. 9.
