AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops New Hampshire is a step closer to regulated sports betting after a bill that would legalise such activities in the state advanced to the Senate.The New Hampshire House of Representatives has passed an amended version of House Bill 480 by a vote of 269-82, with the bill now moving forward to the Senate for further discussion.Should the bill come into law, consumers would be able to place bets at various retail locations across the state, as well as via online and mobile platforms. The New Hampshire Lottery Commission would be responsible for regulating the market.The current version of the bill does not clarify how much the licences would cost, nor the level of tax sports betting operators would face. However, a fiscal note on the bill suggests sports wagering could generate up to $7.5m (£5.7m/€6.6m) in revenue during the first year of regulation.Among the amendments approved by the House this week include a limit of 10 retail sportsbooks in the state and the establishment of a council for responsible gambling.An amendment also clarifies the prohibited events where sports betting would not be allowed. This covers any collegiate sports event that takes place in New Hampshire, as well as any high school sports event sand amateur contest where the competitors are under the age of 18.Sponsors are hoping to pass the bill on or before July 1 this year, with plans in place to launch a request for proposal process for contracted sports betting agents on January 1, 2020.If the process progresses as expected, the first legal sports bets in New Hampshire could be placed on or around July 1, 2020.The progression of the bill comes after New Hampshire last month launched a legal challenge against the US Department of Justice’s (DoJ) revised opinion on the Wire Act, claiming the new stance is not faithful to the text, structure, purpose, or legislative history of the legislation.Filed on behalf of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission, the lawsuit states the stance is beyond the DoJ’s powers to enforce, and demands a declaratory judgement setting out the rights of all parties involved, and to an order vacating and setting aside the 2018 opinion.The DOJ initially ruled that the Wire Act only applied to sports betting in 2011, which was used as a legal basis for state lotteries launching online sales, and states such as New Jersey regulating online casino and poker.However, this stance was then changed in a revised opinion published by the DoJ’s Office of Legal Counsel in January this year, ruling that the Act covered all forms of gambling.Image: Hollis1138 Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting New Hampshire sports betting bill advances to Senate read more

OUR APPROACH AS AN ARCHITECT. A main aspect that we took into account was to portray the feelings and emotional attachment the client had to his nostalgic regional landscape. We worked on modelling the house as a stylized version of traditional modernism which was carefully done by analyzing the micro climate, ecology, client’s special requirements and lifestyle.Save this picture!© Justin SebastianSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Justin SebastianInstead of focusing on a ‘time freeze design’ that replicated traditional details, elements like texture and feel of the design that brought the essence of traditionalism were highlighted. The client requirement of having a capacious family space for gatherings and cultural functions were met through careful functional space planning. A seamless flow of spaces were achieved by introducing multi-functional spaces lined with individual rooms and double height volumes connecting the spaces throughout at all levels.Save this picture!© Justin SebastianDETAILS. Elements like wood, which has always been a conventional building material popular in tropical design was clubbed with a contemporary material like metal to create an equilibrium, which in turn maintained the balance with ancillary materials. The architectural lights were designed to be a part of the overall design element rather than to be a stand- alone. To complement the volume of common spaces, aesthetic hanging wired lights were designed that has minimal footprint and yet significant impact. It brings in balance and avoids monotony.Save this picture!© Justin SebastianSave this picture!First Floor PlanHandpicked Oak wood Mediterranean furniture was used in the interior to complete the look. Though different in origin, it complimented and blended with the traditional style as historically Kerala’s architectural style had been influenced by Portugal designs in furniture, wood work and baking clay tiles. Surrounded by the tropical landscape, the outside has a calming view filled with nature. Therefore, for better vistas, UPVC Windows were used, designed with bigger central double glazed windows without grills embracing the outdoor, imbibing the tropical plants to the contemporary interiors.Save this picture!© Justin SebastianEXTERIOR. The details and interior space integration aided to the formation of our exterior. The south facing façade being the warmest during the day, projected balconies were introduced protecting from the harsh sun, which provides cute and serene spill over spaces to the children’s bedrooms. Beautiful Wooden louvered pivoted windows that was historically used as protective screens for privacy had been embedded in the design which adds a subtle feel to the front façade. The Balconies are adorned with Wiener Berger Porotherm Grinded Hollow Bricks.Save this picture!Section DDConventionally used for walls, the brick has a different take on this project. Integrated with metal I-sections it comes up as a Brick curtain – a second protective layer. The flying roof gets its name from the contrast roof slope radical to the normal gable roof adding to its elevational uniqueness. The roof tiles, with a touch of Portugal design, were imported to bring in its purest traditional look. As we leave the house the porous and yet sturdy compound wall, the flying roof, the brick curtain, its simple and sublime interiors combine to form a beguiling sense of feeling, bringing back the familiar feel of traditionalism.Save this picture!© Justin SebastianProject gallerySee allShow lessFoshan Meisha Bilingual School / AUBE CONCEPTIONSelected ProjectsLíder Store / FGMF ArquitetosSelected Projects Share Year:  Kodath House / Archimatrix India Associates samsung Architects: Archimatrix India Associates Area Area of this architecture project 2020 India Manufacturers: Fenesta, Samsung, Weiner Berger, Xpelair Houses Flamente Lighting: samsung Landscape: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Justin Sebastian+ 23Curated by Hana Abdel Share Ashalevin Sachin Sathyan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeArchimatrix India AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookNeduvannoorIndiaPublished on January 02, 2021Cite: “Kodath House / Archimatrix India Associates” 01 Jan 2021.

Detained immigrant women start hunger strike

first_imgWomen immigrants held in the Berks County Family Detention Center in Leesport, Pa., launched a courageous hunger strike on Aug. 8 to protest their confinement and that of their children, whose health and well-being are deteriorating. Calling themselves the “Madres Berks,” they assert, “We are desperate and we will get out dead or alive.” (, Aug. 12)These Central American refugees say they have been detained for 270 to 365 days. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson told the media that the administration is ensuring the average stay is “20 days or less.”  When the women got wind of his statement, they decided to publicize their long detentions.In a letter to Johnson, the women wrote: “On many occasions our children [ages 2 to 16] have thought about suicide because of the confinement and desperation that is caused by being here.” (, Aug. 17)  Their children are suffering, many not eating or sleeping.Olga Byrne of Human Rights First, an immigrants’ advocacy organization, says, “The Obama administration’s detention of families has had severely traumatizing effects on both children and their mothers. Even a few days in detention can be harmful to the health of children.”These women were not granted asylum at the U.S. border, but, with the American Civil Liberties Union’s assistance, have appealed and filed petitions in federal court requesting new screenings. The government asserts that the women do not have a legal right to challenge their imprisonment or to appeal through the courts as newly arrived immigrants. A federal judge agreed. But an appeal has been filed on the women’s behalf — and it’s a test case for other “noncitizens,” too.Stop detentions and deportations!The U.S. government’s policy regarding Central American families fleeing violence and extreme poverty in their homelands is to lock up women with their children, including babies, in “family detention centers.” Instead of providing safe, healthy environments, or allowing these families to live with relatives, the state punitively jails them in isolated facilities, providing little or no legal or social services and violating their civil and human rights.The practice of detaining families expanded in 2014 when the government tried to stop immigration, mainly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala — countries where the U.S. continues to play a large role in fomenting violence and instability.  In 2009, former Secretary of State, and current presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton supported a right-wing coup against the democratically elected government of Honduras. The coup ushered in repression and violence on a massive scale, causing many people to flee.In the summer of 2015, U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee ordered the government to release migrant children and their mothers within 20 days, arguing that their detention violates the Flores Settlement, which  established policies regarding custody and housing of immigrant children since 1997.Around the 20-day period, Texas immigration jails send detainees to Berks, where “the 20-day period doesn’t apply,” says immigration attorney Carol Anne Donohue, president of the Greater Reading [Pa.] Immigration Project. The for-profit detention center is publicly run, but has a contract with Immigration, Customs and Enforcement to maintain a certain occupancy rate. The state cancelled Berks’ license, so it is illegal to detain children there, but that is being allowed anyway.The Obama administration is holding in custody and deporting record numbers of immigrants; tens of thousands are being held in detention centers where conditions are abysmal. Many are awaiting hearings. This is an enormous humanitarian crisis. Detention Watch Network asserts that “the current family detention program is the largest since the internment of Japanese Americans in the 1940s.”Major civil liberties and immigrant rights organizations have been protesting the unjust, inhumane practice of family detention through demonstrations and in the courts. Regarding the Berks’ detainees, demonstrators displayed banners calling for the release of these women and children and the detention center’s closure on Aug. 15 in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where the Obama family was vacationing.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Flooding threatens millions from New Mexico to Michigan as record heat continues in South

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Eleven states are under flood and flash flood alerts Tuesday morning. A cold front combined with tropical moisture from the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico will bring rounds of heavy rain and the threat of flash flooding from New Mexico to Michigan Tuesday and Wednesday.There has already been flash flooding in southeastern New Mexico near Carlsbad, where some people got stuck in their vehicles in the flood waters and had to be rescued.Just south of Duluth, Minnesota, roads have been under water with some rivers nearing record flood stage due to numerous rounds of heavy rain in the last 24 hours. In the next 48 hours, some areas could see more than 4 inches of additional rain, as flooding and flash flooding remains in the forecast.Meanwhile, numerous record highs were broken Monday from the Deep South all the way to the Midwest. Among the records, Indianapolis reached 92 degrees, Cincinnati hit 94, Atlanta reached 96 and Macon, Georgia, hit 100 — while in Alabama, Birmingham and Montgomery both reached 98.More record heat is expected Tuesday and with humidity the temperature will feel like 100 degrees or even more in some areas. The record heat will move to the East Coast on Wednesday, with actual temperatures into the mid to upper 90s for the Mid-Atlantic states, and temperatures close to 90 degrees possible in New York City and Philadelphia.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Lidar observations of polar mesospheric clouds at Rothera, Antarctica (67.5 degrees S, 68.0 degrees W)

first_imgPolar mesospheric clouds (PMC) were observed by an Fe Boltzmann temperature lidar at Rothera (67.5degreesS, 68.0degreesW), Antarctica in the austral summer of 2002-2003.The Rothera PMC are much weaker, less frequent, and not as high as the PMC observed at the South Pole. The mean PMC altitude is 83.74 +/- 0.25 km, which is approximately 1.3 km lower than the South Pole clouds. A comparison of numerous cloud observations indicates that southern hemisphere PMC are about 1 km higher than northern clouds at similar latitudes. Lidar measurements also show that the mesopause region temperatures at Rothera in late January are warmer than at the South Pole, while the Fe layer at Rothera has higher density and a lower peak altitude compared to the summertime Fe layer at the South Pole. These Fe density and temperature observations are qualitatively consistent with the PMC observations.last_img read more
