New Delhi: Both West Indies and Bangladesh will look to get their stumbling campaign back on track when they lock horns with each other in the match number 22 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the County Ground in Taunton on Monday. Both teams have three points each with one win, two defeats and a washout that resulted in splitting the points. While the two teams will fight to keep their semi-finals hope alive, we are spending a lot of time going through the individual states of players, pitch report and more just to get you the right combination for your Dream 11 fantasy league contest that can make you win lakhs.For today’s game, we can expect good scores given the form of both teams unless one of them collapses. With Chrish Gayle and Shai Hope on top of the order and then Nicholas Pooran in the middle and Jason Holder and Andre Russel in the lower, West Indians are batting monsters on their day. Bangladesh, on the other hand, is also playing good cricket and their batsman except opener Tamim Iqbal are chipping in time to time to score runs for the team. Shakib being their star performer is a must to include in your Dream 11 fantasy league team.Players to choose fromBangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, Abu JayedWest Indies: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Kemar RoachWest Indies vs Bangladesh Dream 11 team combination, captain and vice-captain pickWicket-keepers: Shai Hope (Captain), Mushfiqur RahimShai Hope averages 94.57 against Bangladesh in 9 ODIs with 3 tons and 6 fifties while Rahim is one of Bangladesh’s most inform players.Batsman: Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Soumya Sarkar (vice captain), Shakib Al HasanGayle storm against Bangladeshi bowling attack is always likely and Pooran has been in outstanding form for quite some time. Soumya Sarkar is in good touch and he probably can survive the bouncers of West Indies bowlers. Why Shakib Al Hasan? You can be serious while asking this question.All-rounder: Jason HolderIf you wonder why we did not pick Andre Russel, let me tell you he is suffering from a knee injury and unlikely to play. Even if he plays, he won’t bowl too much and picking an unfit player is never clever. Holder picks up wickets, scores runs. Obvious choice.Bowlers: Oshane Thomas, Mashrafe Mortaza, Sheldon CottrellMustafizur Rahman is Bangladesh’ leading bowler and West Indies players will look to play him cautiously. Mortaza, on the other hand, always picks up wicket with his steady line and length and batsmen like to take risk against him. Oshane Thomas and Cottrell are going to be crucial, don’t exclude them.  last_img read more

first_imgThe USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research held its first conference on the Guatemalan genocide this week to bring together researchers for informative panels on the little-known history of this era in Latin America. The conference, “A Conflict? Genocide and Research in Guatemala,” began Sunday and will continue through Wednesday.Attendees included award-winning activist and professor Victoria Sanford, as well as Fredy Peccerelli, a forensic anthropologist and 1999 winner of the CNN and Time Magazine “50 Latin American Leaders for the New Millennium.” In the 1980s, the Mayan people were targeted within Guatemala for protesting against a repressive government. According to the Holocaust Museum of Houston, around 200,000 people went missing or were killed, and 1.5 million people were displaced when the Guatemalan army obliterated villages. The conflict lasted around 36 years and ended with the 1996 Oslo Accords. However, since the 1990s, the genocide has been somewhat pushed aside and forgotten. The Shoah Foundation’s mission is to share the stories of genocide survivors through the platform of audio-visual interviews. The organization has collected close to 53,000 survivor testimonies from 63 countries in 41 languages and hopes that their videos will help to better convey the lives of the survivors and teach future generations. The Shoah Foundation and its partners aim to bring attention to the genocide and share the unheard stories of the Guatemalan victims. Brigitte Suhr, an attendee that worked in Guatemala through the Guatemalan Truth Commission, emphasized the need to stay up-to-date with what is happening in the country. Like many participants, Suhr hopes to see an increased awareness of the genocide and accurate representations of the accounts of the victims. Sanford, a professor at Lehman College, presented a similar idea in her speech.“We know this knowledge must be shared,” Sanford said. “How do we keep the voices and the survivors at the front?” Fredy Peccerelli, who worked with the Mayan peoples as a member of the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation, painted a picture of the “raw emotions” of the people in the community. With the help of families, Peccerelli and his crew have been able to further research the conflict and identify genocide victims. Furthermore, through collaboration with the Shoah Foundation, 217 interviews have been conducted and the victims have shared stories of rape, mass murder, the loss of loved ones and the psychological aftermath of a genocide.Conference speakers emphasized that genocides are not a thing of the past, as there are ongoing genocides in Syria and throughout Africa; however, through education, future generations can learn how to tackle these issues. “Education is one solution to the problem, along with certain political matters, so it’s a complex of things,” said Wolf Gruner, director of the Shoah Foundation. “But we need to change so genocide will not happen again. First and foremost, we want to raise awareness and spread knowledge.” Stephen Smith, UNESCO co-chair on genocide education and a member of the Shoah Foundation, explained that through resources like Shoah Foundation’s iWitness — the online compilation of all the video interviews that the foundation conducts — younger generations can learn and prevent mass genocides. “We really can’t compare human suffering, but the causes and consequences of violence in genocidal societies we need to understand better and deeper,” Smith said. “Our attitudes really do matter to the way in which the world works.” The conference is one in a series of events meant to address genocide in Latin America, including a conference co-hosted with UNESCO last Friday. The Shoah Foundation also partnered with Visions and Voices to bring Rebeca Lane, a Latin-American hip-hop artist, to campus on Tuesday. Lane was raised during the time following the Guatemalan Civil War and Guatemalan genocide and is not only an artist, but also an activist, sociologist and educator.last_img read more

first_imgNATIONAL SPORTS FESTIVALThe Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, on Monday in Benin City commended the Government of Edo State for its preparedness to host the 20th edition of the National Sports Festival billed for 2020.The Sports Minister who paid an unscheduled visit to the state to assess the level of work going on at facilities earmarked for the Games now being referred to as “Benin 2020”, was full of plaudits for the state. Some of the sports facilities visited by the minister include; the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin Technical College sports ground as well as the University of Benin Sports Complex.“I must confess that from what I have seen on ground, the Edo State Government is more prepared for the hosting of the National Sports Festival than I had imagined.“Of course, there is still the need for some touches here and there but that is where the Federal Government comes in because the National Sports Festival is a Federal Government event. Even the University of Benin from the facilities I see on ground, can successfully host the games and I seize the opportunity to commend the founding fathers of the institution for this great initiative.“I am totally happy with all the locations visited here in Benin-City”, the minister declared.Asked to comment on the renovation work done so far on the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Dalung said he was more than satisfied.“The contractor has already assured me that the stadium will be ready by April. The stadium from what I have seen is capable of becoming the best in the country but I have already advised the Edo State Government not to compromise quality. The stadium is going to become not only a state monument but also a national monument hence the need to emphasize the use of quality materials and products”, the minister stated.Responding on behalf of the Edo State Government, the Chairman of the Edo State Sports Commission, Godwin Dudu-Orumen, re-iterated the readiness of the state to host the best National Sports fFestival. He said the state will leave no stone unturned to achieve this.“The Governor Godwin Obaseki led administration is already re-constructing the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium to international standard and we are building 20 mini stadia in the 18 local governments areas of the state. “We not only want to host the games, we want it to be the best ever since the inception of the games and you can be rest assured that we are going to put every machinery in place to achieve that,” stressed the Edo Sports Commission boss.Edo State was awarded the hosting rights for the 20th National Sports Festival at the close of the 19th edition which was held in Abuja last December.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

first_imgShare Share UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Related Articles StumbleUpon Submit There are times when writing a monthly column for SBC News presents a challenge. This is one of those months. It’s not because of the paucity of potential content. It’s because of the sheer volume of potential content.As it happens, there is a common thread running through all that I write about below, particularly with a General Election looming and Safer Gambling Week just around the corner (the latter of which I am marking by participating in a “Responsible VIP Management” webinar on 12th November).So let’s get started.The formal launch of the Betting and Gaming Council (“BGC”) on 6th November (established “in response to calls for the industry to work together to guarantee an enjoyable, fair and safe betting and gaming experience for all”) was dominated by the announcement by ten of the UK’s top gambling companies – Aspers, bet365, Caesars, Flutter Entertainment, Genting, GVC Holdings, Playtech, Rank Group, SkyBetting & Gaming and William Hill – of what is described as “the most comprehensive set of measures from a wide group of leaders across the sector to support the UK Gambling Commission’s national strategy to reduce gambling harms”.The key safer gambling commitments underlying those measures are to:prevent underage gambling and protect young peopleincrease support for treatment of gambling harmstrengthen and expand codes of practice for advertising and marketingprotect and empower customerspromote a culture of safer gambling.David CliftonThe above announcement took place one day after share values in publicly quoted gambling companies fell dramatically on publication by the Gambling Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group (“APPG”) of a premature and misapprehension-laden Interim Report arising from its Online Gambling Harm Inquiry. I say “premature” because, despite the report containing some fairly blistering criticisms of the industry and regulator alike, the APPG decided in its wisdom to publish its report before meeting with either the new Gambling Minister, Rebecca Pow, or any representative from the Gambling Commission. I say “misapprehension-laden” for reasons I will explain below.The first of 28 recommendations in the report is that new gambling legislation is urgently required.Indeed, the report (chaired by Labour Party MP Carolyn Harris) carries much the same message as that espoused over the last year or so by her party’s Deputy Leader Tom Watson who, commenting last month on the Gambling Commission’s 2019 Young People and Gambling Survey (that incidentally showed a decline in gambling participation by 11 to 16 year olds), said: “the government’s soft touch approach to gambling regulation has failed. The next Labour government will bring problem gambling under control with a comprehensive new Gambling Act, which will bring gambling advertising, spiralling losses and burgeoning in-game gambling products under control”. Notwithstanding Tom Watson’s decision to stand down as Deputy Leader, we can expect the forthcoming Labour Party manifesto for the 12th December General Election to carry similar calls to those set out within the APPG report. To remove any doubt on that front, in his response to Watson, Jeremy Corbyn said “Although you are stepping down, I know we will continue to work together on the issues you have always championed and which we share a passion for: taking on …. the gambling companies”.It must also be remembered that Vice-Chairs of the APPG include Conservative Party hard-liners Iain Duncan Smith and Lord Chadlington.The former’s website records that in March this year he urged the Government to “tighten controls on the gambling industry to tackle the industry’s scandalous behaviour of incentivising vulnerable gamblers who rack up huge debts and become addicted to gambling”. Indeed, his precise words, when speaking about the industry in a Westminster Hall debate at that time, were “we need to bring the beast back under control”.On 2 August 2019, GVC and four of the other gambling companies involved in the above-announcement at the launch of the BGC asked Lord Chadlington to chair an independent committee that will recommend how best to administer funds that they commit to safer gambling initiatives. That in itself was an interesting appointment, given that just six months earlier, Lord Chadlington had written in “The House” magazine: “I am surprised to find myself not only agreeing with Tom Watson – but even urging him to be more extreme!” Notwithstanding the subsequent launch of the GVC Foundation intended to coordinate and support its corporate social responsibility initiatives, objectives and donations around the world, one wonders how GVC’s relationship with the noble peer will develop, given the following extract from the introduction to the APPG report:“We were …. appalled at the cowardly behaviour of Kenny Alexander, the Chief Executive of GVC holdings, who pulled out of appearing before the group, and failed to send a representative, shortly after receiving an email from a problem gambler which challenged the actions of GVC, copying in the GRH APPG. An industry which causes harm must be answerable for its actions.”The APPG report contains some other very strong words of criticism, not all of them justified in my view; for example:In support of its headline-grabbing call for stake and deposit limits to be introduced in online gambling to reduce harm, the APPG maintains that there is no “justification for having slot machine-style games online with staking levels above £2” on the ground that “if they are not acceptable in land-based venues they should not be allowed online”, overlooking the fact that the maximum stake permitted for a category B1 machine in a land-based casino is £5 with a progressive prize of up to £20,000.Its call for introduction of (a) stronger measures to verify the age and identity of online gambling customers and (b) a Gambling Ombudsman for dispute resolution purposes seemingly take little or no account of newly introduced more robust LCCP requirements in each of these respects.Its comment that “in offline or land-based gambling, staff are given training on how to interact with customers and how to spot the signs of more problematic gambling” but that “such mechanisms are not possible with remote gaming” implies a lack of awareness of the Commission’s recently introduced LCCP customer interaction changes and accompanying guidance.In expressing concerns about gambling operators being permitted to access financial data of customers who opt-in to open banking for the purpose of affordability checks, the APPG appears to have taken little or no account of the very useful resource this provides to operators aiming to satisfy AML requirements to establish a customer’s source of funds in higher-risk cases, failures in respect of which have been the subject of innumerable enforcement measures by the Commission in recent years, the most recent example of which has been the penalty incurred last month by Betfred.Its call for operators to ensure they do not market to those that have self-excluded takes insufficient account of enforcement by the Commission of the existing LCCP requirements in this respect as evidenced, for example, by substantial fines historically levied on the likes of 888, LeoVegas and Rank Group for past self-exclusion failings that, together, provide clear evidence that the Commission already has adequate enforcement powers, something that the APPG is now asking for it to be given.The Gambling Commission will itself be understandably concerned that the report (a) fails to reflect the fact that the protection of children and the vulnerable lies at the heart of its work, (b) pays little heed to the National Strategy for Reducing Gambling Harms published by the Commission shortly after the APPG commenced its work and (c) fails to acknowledge that, in two speeches last month by its Chief Executive Neil McArthur (the most recent of which is entitled “Raising Standards: Our Priorities, Your Opportunities”), the Commission has called on the industry to collaborate in order to address three issues that are the subject of critical comment within the APPG report, i.e. (i) how to make gambling product design safer, (ii) develop a code of conduct in relation to operators’ treatment of VIPs (and associated inducements to gamble) and (iii) consider how advertising technology can be used for social responsibility purposes. In other respects, the APPG makes predictable recommendations in relation to such matters as (a) a 1% statutory levy, (b) the use of affiliates for marketing purposes, (c) banning the use of credit cards (in relation to which we await the outcome of the Gambling Commission’s consultation that concluded on 6 November) and (d) greater regulation of loot boxes (reinforcing the recent call for this by the Children’s Commissioner for England).More extreme recommendations include requirements that UK licensed gambling companies (a) must ensure they are protecting children and the vulnerable in all countries in which they operate and (b) cease active trading in jurisdictions that have not formally legalised remote gambling.Perhaps it is no wonder that, in the face of considerably more demanding regulatory requirements and an increasingly challenging trading environment, rising numbers of gambling operators are considering the surrender of their UK licences. Anyone thinking of following suit should take very careful note of a “reminder” of the Gambling Commission’s expectations in this respect, published last month.To return to where I began, a UK General Election looms and, inevitably, Brexit is likely to attract more attention over the coming weeks than gambling.So I conclude with a reminder that during the course of October: (a) DMCS has published guidance entitled “Preparing for no deal Brexit if you work in gambling”, (b) UKHospitality has joined forces with the Tourism Alliance to publish a “No-Deal Brexit briefing note” that is more directed at the land-based hospitality sector, (c) the Government of Gibraltar has published a “Preparing for a no-deal Brexit” booklet, (d) the Isle of Man Government has published updated Brexit information on its website and (e) the Malta Gaming Authority has published “Guidance document on the Impact of the United Kingdom’s Exit from the European Union” that constitutes essential reading material for those holding or applying for MGA licences because, in addition to making specific provision in relation to limited validity recognition notices, points out that an MGA licence may only be held by a person established within the European Economic Area, which will no longer be the case when Brexit occurs.______________________David Clifton – Director – ‎Clifton Davies Consultancy Limited Swansea City drops gambling sponsor August 21, 2020 Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020last_img read more

first_imgThe Ayew brothers were enjoying stellar seasons for their respective teams in the top two divisions in England prior to the break brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.And following the resumption of both league campaigns, the two players are continuing to thrive.Prior to the weekend, Andre had scored 12 league goals for Swansea City in the Championship while Jordan had found the net eight times for Crystal Palace in the Premier League.This weekend, both players were at it in front of goal again, on the same day.Jordan Ayew scored for Crystal Palace in their win over Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League, tapping home for the Eagles.Andre Ayew also scored from the spot for Swansea after Conor Gallagher was brought down in the box, as they thrashed Middlesbrough 3-0 in the Championship.This isn’t the first time the two players have found the net on the same day this season. It isn’t even the second.Back in October, just hours after his brother scored for Swansea City against Stoke, Jordan found the net late on for Premier League side Crystal Palace against West Ham United.In February, Jordan Ayew scored the winner in Palace’s game against Brighton while Andre scored in Swansea’s 2-2 draw with Blackburn.The two players will be hoping that this form continues till the end of the season and beyond.last_img read more

first_imgA letter to employees from the teams and AEG, which owns the arena, said that “we understand that these extraordinary events have impacted all of our lives and, as a valuable member of the Staples Center team, your health and wellbeing is important to us.”The Lakers and Clippers have also told their teams’ game-night employees that they will continue to compensate them through the NBA hiatus. This includes employees such as team statisticians, announcers and dance teams. Both franchises also asked employees to work from home if possible.On Friday afternoon, Staples Center donated 7,000 pounds of food that would have been wasted because of the lack of events. Donations went to The Midnight Mission and the L.A. Mission Men’s Center, both located in downtown Los Angeles. Through the end of the NBA and NHL seasons, more than 2,800 hourly event staff who work Kings, Lakers and Clippers games at Staples Center will receive compensation for wages lost due to the suspension of events in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.As the Southern California News Group reported Friday, the three teams and Staples Center joined forces to establish a fund to provide payments to ushers, security officers, ticket sellers, ticket takers, parking attendants, merchandise staff, food and beverage employees, housekeeping and operations staff and stage hands, among others.They’ll be paid for all shifts lost for all sporting events they were scheduled to work if they don’t take place.“Recognizing that the coronavirus is not just a health crisis but also an economic one, the organizations have come together in this unprecedented way to help the valued employees who work tirelessly to deliver outstanding guest experiences and teamwork that is the heart of STAPLES Center,” the three organizations wrote in a joint news release.
