The online gaming bill, HB4311, passed by the same margin. This followed each bill being approved by the chamber’s Committee of the Whole, having been ratified by the Regulatory Reform Committee, following significant changes. This saw the tax rate for HB4916 lowered to 8.4% of gross revenue, from the original 8.75%. The state’s three land-based casinos and tribal venues will be permitted to offer retail wagering, as well as operating one online platform, paying $50,000 application, and $100,000 license fee. However it was HB4311 that saw the most sweeping changes, due to Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s concerns over online lottery revenue being cannibalized by new forms of igaming. As a result the tax rate has increased significantly, rising to a minimum of 20%, for operators generating revenue of $4m or less, and to 28% for those that bring in more than $12m. Read the full story on iGB North America.last_img read more

Joe Worsley enjoying French lessons at Bordeaux-Begles

first_img Rey of light: Julien Rey splinters the Oyonnax defence as Bordeaux-Begles pick up a Top 14 victory this seasonBy Gavin MortimerIT’S NOT just British and Irish players beating a path to France to further their rugby education. Scan the staff lists of the French clubs and you’ll spot more than a few familiar names among the coaches: Bernard Jackman at Grenoble, Ronan O’Gara at Racing Metro, Jeremy Davidson at Aurillac, Tom Smith at Bergerac. And down in Bordeaux-Begles Joe Worsley is making a name for himself as defence coach.Worsley has former Wasps team-mate Raphael Ibanez to thank for the job. It was he, in his capacity as Bordeaux-Begles head coach, who recruited him in May 2012, six months after a neck injury had forced Worsley into retirement. “I played with him for five years at Wasps and could already see his qualities as a defender and the ideas he had concerning that sector of the game,” said Ibanez at the time.Worsley didn’t take long to accept Ibanez’s offer. “I’ve lived in and around for London for most of my of life and I wanted to experience a foreign culture,” he explains. “Also, I had this wealth of knowledge built up over my playing career, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to be a coach. I thought the sooner I found out the better.”So off Worsley went, down to Bordeaux in the south-west of France, where the wine is magnificent but the rugby less so. Winners of the Top 14 title just twice in their history, their last success was in 1991 when they beat Toulouse in the final.“Bordeaux and Begles have two distinct cultures,” explains Worsley. “Begles is an urban conurbation in Bordeaux and in rugby terms it’s like Gloucester. The Bordeaux side of the club is more like a London team and they regard each other as different to the other.”Bordeaux or Begles, when Worsley pitched up he couldn’t speak a word of French so he set out to master the language. “My lack of French curtailed my ability to coach on the spur of the moment. By Christmas (2012) I was able to get by and now I can express myself fine in French. It was hard work because I’ve three young boys and in between them and the coaching, I really had to find the time to learn French.” TAGS: Wasps Back in the late 1990s Bordeaux-Begles recorded some thumping victories in the Heineken Cup over the likes of Leinster and the Scarlets, but in recent years they’ve been more used to the Amlin.  Next month they host Bath and in December travel to the Dragons to take part in a competition that next year might be a French-free zone. Where does Worsley stand on the great Euro debate?“The club game in England and France is growing the whole time, and with it the commercial side,” he replies. “In Wales, Scotland and Ireland they haven’t the economy on the same scale and the English and French leagues are so much bigger financially than the Celts. It’s natural that they will want a bigger part in the competition because they are bringing in more money. But it’s a tournament I adore and we need to have six nations in it so I hope it can all be resolved diplomatically.” Pedigree: Joe Worsley won the Heineken Cup twice with WaspsSuch determination is no surprise. Anyone who saw Worsley play during his 12-year England career remembers a player who gave it his all, a lion-hearted loose forward who also won a cap for the Lions on the 2009 tour to South Africa.“I came to France ready to buy into their way of doing things,” explains Worsley. “They do some things better than we do in England and they do some things worse. You’ve got to roll with it.”One aspect of the French game Worsley struggled with initially was the infuriating habit of players ready to die for the cause at home and not giving a damn on the road. “I’m beginning to understand why they have this emphasis on winning at home,” says Worsley. “It starts at a very young age and we’re working on it so hopefully it will change.”But not yet at Bordeaux-Begles, who lie ninth in the table. Wins at home over Toulouse, Castres and Oyonnax have been interspersed with defeats away at Grenoble and Brive, both of whom are below them in the table.center_img NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here OpinionBy Jane LucasEver look back on your life and think, if you could turn back time you would change something? You aren’t alone in this thought. So many of us can, at times, feel guilty about making mistakes or decisions that end up changing the course of our lives. It happens! But it isn’t something to regret; rather, learn to embrace the good and the not-so-good, accepting rather than judging who you are or where you’ve been. Of course, it may have changed your life in such a way that it short-circuited what you initially wanted, or maybe your life hasn’t turned out the way you had hoped it would. We all have been given a certain deck of cards that is life, and sometimes, whether we like them or not, the hand we are dealt is what we have to deal with. No matter where you are in life, it is good every now and then to look back and see where the lessons are. Sometimes, it may not feel like you can take anything away from the situation, especially if it is causing you hurt and pain. But there are always things we can learn, and in many cases, we can move forward knowing that we have more knowledge and experience now to guide us better in the future. With that in mind, here are some of the life-changing circumstances that can really change who we are.    A working environment and career choicesIt’s sometimes hard to believe that our career choices can have such a huge impact on our future, and in many, often unexpected ways. First up there is our health. Performing a particular task, or working within a specific environment, can mean that you are now prone to future health risks. This might include hearing loss if the workplace or work environment can cause harm to your internal eardrum. It might be that your work causes you great stress, or because of the type of work you do, such as being at the computer all day, you worry about achy wrists, headaches, or eyestrain. Not to mention that your job has an impact on your future finances, in terms of how much you can save as well as having enough going into a pension or retirement for the future. There is no denying that your choice of work and work environment can impact your life in many ways. But often the biggest impact can be on your mental health. Your work can cause stress, anxiety, and depression, with sideline symptoms including lack of sleep, loss of appetite, anger, and frustration. While at the time it can feel like there is no way out, when looking back try to identify from your experience what is a good working environment, and what is not, and take that knowledge with you into next time. Past habits and mistakesHave you ever been in a position where things have gotten a little out of hand? Many of us might be able to identify with forming habits for things that we know aren’t the best for us. For example, a drug addiction. It might be you find yourself in a situation where your workplace has undertaken reasonable suspicion training in drug testing, which might have caused problems for you in the past. Maybe it isn’t drugs, but more alcohol dependency, smoking, or other vices that we can all be tempted by. The decisions we have made in the past to let those things dominate our lives might be able to help you make better choices in the future. At the time, it doesn’t feel like there is a way out, or there is a life without it. But taking those first positive steps toward gaining back control can make the biggest difference in your life. Financial issuesStruggling with your finances can really hinder your chances of a prosperous future if you don’t tackle the issue head-on. Your finances might be a lot to handle at first. After all, few of us are given life lessons on the ins and outs of wisely using a credit card, how credit can affect your life, and budget management. Yet, as adults we are expected to understand the financial world and thrive instead of sink. Things can be manageable with credit, mortgages, and debt, though. And yes, in some cases it can get out of control if you don’t right the sinking ship. Certainly, heading down a road of bankruptcy can do damage to a strong financial future, making it a much longer road than necessary to get there. We are all human though, and it is understandable if you feel like you have no choice. This is why having experienced law firms on your side can help guide you through the process. Just know that, if you go the route of bankruptcy, things like credit and mortgages will be harder to obtain, and you will find that you will often be asked to declare it, even when you are through it and on the other side; financial applications and even work interviews may ask about this, and it could affect your career. Learn from this experience and let it encourage you to think carefully before taking drastic action and try to budget wisely,  knowing that you can handle things moving forward. A marriage breakdownLet’s be honest, nobody enters into a marriage considering that it will break down at some point, but relationships can run their course. Sometimes it can seem impossible to predict what will work and what won’t these days. However, the breakdown of a marriage can really affect your life moving forward. You can struggle to live independently; you may have court custody hearings to attend; and life as a single parent may feel overwhelming. This is why it is important to ensure that you try and work things out. Marriage counseling can often help, alongside separation trials, or even just giving each other some space while you figure out, with objective support, the next best step. The reality is, while it may feel like the end of the world, in some cases people are happier apart than together. Which is far more important. It is essential to understand that not all marriages are destined to work; however, some people can feel divorce is the easy route out. Looking back you may wish you had tried harder to communicate, to talk things through, or to give things another go. Especially if you have children. But don’t let that hinder your future. You can go on again to love and be married again when you’re ready, and you may certainly thrive in a new dynamic. Just try and remember to do what is right for you. Hopefully this brief guide can helps you if you find yourself faced with any of these life-changing circumstances, encouraging you to look back and gain the knowledge and experience needed to move forward, better than ever.

Israeli enquiry unsurprisingly decides not to punish soldiers who killed Palestinian cameraman

first_img Follow the news on Israel to go further Organisation RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the findings of an Israeli investigation into the death of Palestinian cameraman Fadel Shanaa. “Israeli soldiers enjoy an impunity that endangers many journalists covering their operations,” the press freedom organisation says. “Only an impartial analysis of what happened would be able to prevent this kind of tragedy from recurring.” IsraelMiddle East – North Africa May 16, 2021 Find out more Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the findings of an Israeli investigation into the death of Palestinian cameraman Fadel Shanaa, clearing the soldiers involved of any responsibility. The Israeli military advocate-general, Brig. Gen. Avihai Mendelblit, notified Shanaa’s employer, the British news agency Reuters, of the results of the probe in a letter today.Gen. Mendelblit said the Israeli tank crew that fired shells at Shanaa and soundman Wafa Abu Mizyed during an incursion into the Gaza Strip on 16 April respected the rules of engagement and will therefore not face legal action. Mizyed sustained only minor injuries.“The tank crew was unable to determine the nature of the object mounted on the tripod and positively identify it as an anti-tank missile, a mortar or a television camera,” the letter said. “In light of the reasonable conclusion reached by the tank crew and its superiors that the characters were hostile and were carrying an object most likely to be a weapon, the decision to fire at the targets was sound.”Gen. Mendelblit claimed that the soldiers were too far away to see the “Press” lettering on the car and flak jackets of Shanaa, 23, and Mizyed, who were filming the Israeli army incursion.Reporters Without Borders said: “The findings of the Israeli investigation are confusing and offer no convincing explanation of the circumstances that led to the Reuters cameraman’s death. The Israel Defence Forces never want to admit they are wrong in such cases. Israeli soldiers enjoy an impunity that endangers many journalists covering their operations.“Only an impartial analysis of what happened would be able to prevent this kind of tragedy from recurring. Instead of reassuring the press, the Israeli military is fostering an unacceptable climate of fear and danger.“If journalists are wearing flak jackets, keeping a reasonable distance from the belligerents and clearly displaying press markings, there should be a change in the behaviour of the soldiers in areas where civilians, including journalists, are present.”Shanaa and Mizyed were about 1 kilometre from the tank that fired shells at their car. Their flak jackets were not effective against the steel flechettes released by one of the Israeli shells.On the same subject:11.06.2008 – Israel/ European Union: Call for EU support for investigation into the death of cameraman Fadel Shanaa Receive email alerts June 3, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes News Help by sharing this information May 28, 2021 Find out more News August 13, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Israeli enquiry unsurprisingly decides not to punish soldiers who killed Palestinian cameraman Newslast_img read more

The rate of new requests dropped to four basis points, which is the lowest level since last March,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Economist. “Of those in forbearance extensions, more than half have been in forbearance for more than 12 months.”In terms of investor type, the share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans in forbearance decreased eight basis points, from 2.32% to 2.24%. Ginnie Mae loans in forbearance decreased 21 basis points, from 5.82% to 5.61%, while the forbearance share for portfolio loans and private-label securities (PLS) decreased by 29 basis points, from 8.55% to 8.26%. The percentage of loans in forbearance for independent mortgage bank (IMB) servicers decreased 16 basis points to 4.42%, and the percentage of loans in forbearance for depository servicers declined 12 basis points to 4.35%.By stage, 11.9% of total loans in forbearance are in the initial forbearance plan stage, while 83.0% are in a forbearance extension. The remaining 5.1% are forbearance re-entries.The recent ATTOM Data Solutions and RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report found that a total of 11,810 U.S. properties had foreclosure filings—default notices, scheduled auctions, or bank repossessions—which was down 1% month-over-month and down 17% year-over-year. The study also found that nationwide one in every 11,636 housing units had a foreclosure filing in April.Of the cumulative forbearance exits for the period from June 1, 2020, through May 9, 2021:27.1% resulted in a loan deferral/partial claim.24.9% represented borrowers who continued to make their monthly payments during their forbearance period.15% represented borrowers who did not make all of their monthly payments and exited forbearance without a loss mitigation plan in place yet.14.2% resulted in reinstatements, in which past-due amounts are paid back when exiting forbearance.9.8% resulted in a loan modification or trial loan modification.7.4% resulted in loans paid off through either a refinance or by selling the home.The remaining 1.6% resulted in repayment plans, short sales, deed-in-lieus or other reasons.”The opening of the economy, as the successful vaccination effort continues, should lead to further reductions in the forbearance share,” said Fratantoni. “However, many homeowners continue to struggle. Borrowers who are reaching the end of their forbearance term should reach out to their servicer to review their options.”Weekly servicer call center volume increased from the previous week from 7.8% to 8.0%, with the average call length time having decreased slightly from 8.1 minutes to 7.9 minutes.

Police department surprised families by paying off their layaway accounts

first_imgiStock(DADE CITY, Fla.) — The holidays just got a bit brighter for 26 families in Florida who learned that their local police department had paid off the items on their layaway accounts in full.With the help of anonymous donations, the Dade City Police Department paid off over $4,300 on 26 layaway accounts at the Walmart in Dade City. The accounts included items from toys to necessities like towels and sheets and more.On Dec. 9, Dade City Police Chief James Walters personally called the families to surprise them with the news that their layaway expenses would now be covered.Walters said he was met with tears, shock and joy when he shared the good news with these families over the phone. Some of the families said they feared that they would be unable to afford these gifts and goods in time for the holidays.“[These families] said they had given up, or they didn’t know what they were going to do,” he said.“To relieve the anxiety, and stress and worry of a parent, you can’t put a figure on that,” Walters added.Walters said that some of the recipients paid a visit to Walmart after they received the good news and when they saw staff from the police department, they were overcome with gratitude.The day was filled with “heartfelt appreciation,” Walter said, and hugs between the families, the employees and the police department.“At the end of the day, there’s a huge percentage of interactions that we have with the public that are not positive,” Walters said. “[The holidays] are an opportunity to have some outreach and affect some lives in a positive way.”This is the second time that the Dade City Police Department has paid layaway accounts for families in the area using anonymous donations. Their gifts to residents in the community are all tax deductible.The department’s layaway payoffs are part of a larger project called Operation Blue Christmas, which is all about performing acts of kindness during the holiday season.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
