Swedish regulator issues warning to payment processors

first_imgThe regulator explained while it can enforce these regulations for licensees, it has no control over unlicensed businesses, meaning they could be used to launder money or finance terrorism.In addition, Spelinspektionen noted that processing payments for unlicensed operators could impact its responsible gambling efforts in Sweden. Websites without a licence do not have access to the Spelpaus.se self-exclusion database, meaning they cannot offer players the ability to block access to igaming sites.“Players who play at gaming companies without a Swedish license are not protected by the gaming liability measures that result from the Gaming Act,” Spelinspektionen head of operations Patrik Gustavsson explained. “Payment service providers that mediate bets or profits to and from unlicensed gaming companies help these companies to continue to operate without complying with Swedish laws and regulations.”Despite the warning, and myriad issues experienced by licensees, the re-regulation of the market has succeeded in significantly cutting revenue from unlicensed gambling. In the second quarter of 2019, to 30 June, revenue from unlicensed operators fell 15.4% quarter-on-quarter to SEK324,000. Spelinspektionen said at the time that around 91% of revenue was generated via licensed operators.

Tags: Online Gambling Payments Swedish regulator issues warning to payment processors The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has written to payment service providers warning them not to do business with unlicensed gambling operators targeting the country’s regulated igaming market.The regulator said that having implemented the Gaming Act, which opened up the market to private online operators for the first time in January this year, it aimed to enhance player protection controls by challening users towards legal, controlled forms of gambling. By working with companies that had not secured a Swedish licence, it said, payment processors were undermining these efforts as well as violating the Gaming Act. This could cause more people to develop problems with gambling and create unfair competition in the market, which in turn could reduce tax revenue from the regulated market.Furthermore, Spelinspektionen continued, unlicensed operators were not subject to the country’s money laundering and terrorist financing regulations.

Apopka Pastors Introduced to “Turning the Tide” Initiative

first_img TAGSDouglas Leadership InstituteGlo Smith Previous articleMayor’s Job Fair on WednesdayNext article3 Charged with Car Wash Burglaries Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Leaders of the Apopka Ministerial Alliance were introduced to The Douglass Leadership Institute’s “Turning The Tide” Initiative yesterday.The Douglass Leadership Institute (DLI), is a national education and public policy organization with representatives and groups in eight battleground states across the United States. DLI’s philosophy is based on the sanctity of life, the promotion of free market ideas and limited government.In attendance were Apopka pastors Doug Bankson, Hezekiah Bradford, and Darrell Morgan. Bankson is running for the Apopka City Commission Seat #3 against incumbent Sam Ruth and Alice Nolan.The “Turning the Tide” initiative is an eight-state outreach program that provides targeted events and specific training in 72 forums on the black family, criminal justice and economic renewal. The eight states are Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.Details about the Initiative were presented by Gloreatha “Glo” Smith. DLI’s Florida State Director. In 2014, Smith lost to Rep. Corrine Brown for the 5th District seat of the US Congress which then included a large portion of Apopka.“It was a great event,” said Smith. ” What was important is that we were able to share our vision with the pastors who can now go back to their congregations and fellow pastors and further our message.”DLI plans to return to Apopka between March and August to host a prayer breakfast and workshops that focus on the black family, criminal justice reform, and entrepreneurship.

O’Dea stands by his friend Cowen

I don’t think, however, that the incident will have major repercussions”.Unlike Cowen’s radio interview, which made world headlines and portrayed Ireland in a negative light, O’Dea emerged with flying colours from his guest appearance on the Late Late Show last weekend when he confirmed plans to stand again at the next General Election.Declining to comment on the Fianna Fail leadership issue and any heave by the Lenihan camp to oust Cowen, he cryptically referred to Michael Noonan’s situation when he took over Fine Gael, “which was in decline at the time”.

The court imposed a cost of s 50,000 on the petitioners, which has to be paid within two weeks to the Chief Minister Relief Fund, COVID-19. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna said, “There was no public interest involved in the petition.” The petitioners P C Rao (65) and K Ganesh Nayak (46), have been directed to submit a receipt of the payment made by email to the Registrar (Judicial). The circular issued on April 3, refers to the extraordinary situation created due to the spread of COVID – 19 and the lockdown and the fact that consumers are unable to pay their electricity bills, which is affecting the liquidity of the distribution companies. The government directed to issue bills for April, on the basis of the average electricity consumption. To make available various modes to enable the citizens to obtain copies of the bills through e-mails, Watsapp, SMS, etc. Further it states that avenues for making payments by different modes be created such as online payment on ESCOMs website, payment through the Karnataka One Website/App, BBPS payment by use of all banks debit cards, credit cards, internet banking, wallet payment, UPI payments, PayU App etc. and IMI mobile App. It is only a one time measure for the current month (April) keeping in view the COVID – 19, regulations in place and for the safety of the consumers. Regular meter reading, billing and collection activities shall be made as before from 1st May 2020 and any difference in the average bill and the actual reading may be adjusted in the following month’s bill. The petitioners argued that such a circular could not have been issued by the Government of Karnataka and it ought to have been issued by the Karnataka Electricity Regulation Commission (for short ‘KERC’). In other states a moratorium has been issued for payment of the electricity bills. They made a representation on April 8, making a grievance about the circular and praying for grant of moratorium, for payment of the electricity bills for three months. The bench said “We find that the act of the State Government of issuing the circular dated April 3, is itself in public interest. This court is dealing with the very important issues such as non-availability of the food and necessities of life to the weaker sections of the society. In our view, the petitioners ought not to have filed the present petition.” The bench also took into consideration that a petition seeking a writ in the nature of mandamus is filed on the very day on which a representation was made to the State Government and other Authorities. It said “We are constrained to observe that the filing of such a petition is an abuse of process of law and, therefore, while we dismiss the petition, the petitioners will have to be saddled with costs. We quantify the cost amount at Rs.50,000.” Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Title: P C Rao And State of Karnataka.

US plane crash fatalities increased in 2018, NTSB says

first_imgJoe Marcus/Twitter(NEW YORK) — The number of people killed in plane crashes in the U.S. increased by about 13% in 2018, according to data released by the National Transportation Safety Board. Civil aviation fatalities rose from 347 in 2017 to 393 in 2018, NTSB officials said. The increase means that, on average, there was at least one aviation death per day in 2018.The death toll included Jennifer Riordan, the first commercial airline passenger killed in the U.S. in nine years.The overwhelming majority of aviation fatalities involve small, private airplanes, and not large commercial airliners. But on April 17, 2018, Riordan died on Southwest flight 1380 after shrapnel from the engine broke the window next to her seat and she was partially sucked out of the aircraft.Other passengers pulled her back into the cabin and tried unsuccessfully to perform CPR.According to the Federal Aviation Administration, there are around three small plane crashes in the U.S. per day.In 2018, 46 more people were killed in aviation accidents than the year before, leading the fatal accident rate to rise above 1 per 100,000 flight hours for the first time in two years.“It is disappointing to see the fatal general aviation accident rate increase after two years with the rate below 1 per 100,000 flight hours,” NTSB Chairman Robert L. Sumwalt said in a statement.NTSB officials said the statistics do not point to a specific reason for the increase in aviation fatalities, but that they are committed to addressing and highlighting any safety related issues.On Tuesday, the NTSB is expected to hold a board meeting to determine the probable cause of the engine failure that led to Riordan’s death on Southwest flight 1380.

Dot com highlights gap between old and new

first_img Comments are closed. The frenzied activity on the Stock Exchange in recent weeks has created a focus on two camps – the old economy and the new. The old economy, characterised by large-scale employment and current profits, struggling to preserve a foothold in the FTSE 100 index, and the new economy, with staggering capital values, few staff and hoped-for profits, achieving a listing without much apparent substance.This has been greeted with horror by commentators, either from the viewpoint that the perceived success of the dot.com economy is the forerunner for a “South Sea Bubble” crash when reality sets in, or the shift from old to new further disables the capital-hungry companies of the old economy from obtaining finance to reinvest.There could be a positive outcome. For years old economy firms have complained the City has taken an over-cautious view on future profits, valuing companies by disposable, tangible assets, not intangible, intellectual capital. Now the stock market darlings are entirely without tangible assets and all about intellectual capital.Karl Marx was right. Professor Kjell Nordstrom of Stockholm School of Economics says 70 per cent of assets are in the brains of employees, customers, suppliers and the community in today’s networked world. The debate over the new and the old economies could be the opportunity for the issue of intellectual capital in the old economy to be recognised and valued at last.The old economy is on the back foot with the City. It needs to prove development of 70 per cent of its assets – that is, people – will lead to business development and profits. But the City is clearly listening to the previously taboo argument over intellect and future profits.HR has a central role in this. What is different about the conclusion in relation to assets and brains is our understanding that culture makes the difference. We have always had brilliant people doing brilliant things but in their specialist “silo” mentality areas. The challenge is to get knowledge transfer or sharing across boundaries.So how is it the dot.com companies convince stockholders? These companies are generally networked, vibrant, non-hierarchical and focused on talent-producing and implementing ideas. They seize opportunities and encourage synergy between people – in other words, they are agile.HR has the key role in the old economy of creating agility of response going beyond quality, cost and delivery – the world-class measures of the 1980s and 90s. This agility is a function that needs to be learned from the new economy. It is not about HR being a rule-maker and enforcer; it is about accelerating change to produce the right culture. If we don’t do this, more of those dot.com companies will oust the old economy ones employing thousands, creating decline and uncertainty. If you think the Rover situation is bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
