Blair memoir warns against move to Left

first_imgTuesday 31 August 2010 9:18 pm Blair memoir warns against move to Left Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ TONY Blair has blamed Gordon Brown for Labour’s loss in the last election, claiming in his long-awaited autobiography that the party veered too far to the left. His memoir, A Journey, which hits the shelves today, also reveals the former Prime Minister’s thoughts on why Labour lost the election in May, the much-criticised Iraq war and his relationship with Gordon Brown.Marketed as a deeply personal account which took him three years to write, the book starts with the words: “I begin as one type of leader; I end as another. That’s why I call it a journey.” In the book he claims Gordon Brown could have won the recent election if he had kept up the principles and policies of New Labour.And of his decision to involve Britain in the Iraq war, he said: “Do they suppose I don’t regret with every fibre the loss of those who died?”He described Gordon Brown as maddening, but shrugged off the “relentless personal pressure”?from the then-chancellor and his allies as “far less troubl[ing] than they or perhaps even he ever realised”. Blair said he came to the conclusion that “having [Brown] inside and constrained was better than outside and let loose or, worse, becoming the figurehead of a far more damaging force well to the left”.Online retailer Amazon said pre-orders are 36 per cent up on Peter Mandelson’s The Third Man, which is currently the website’s most successful political autobiography.Blair has eschewed the traditional bookselling tactics of a promotional tour and advance copies for reviewers, and will donate the proceeds from the tome to the Royal British Legion.He is scheduled to be in Washington today, to attend peace talks in his role as Middle East envoy, but has pre-recorded a television interview with Andrew Marr, which will be shown on BBC2 tonight.

Regulating the African grey market

first_img1st October 2018 | By Hannah Gannage-Stewart Joanne Christie describes the challenges Africa has to overcome to achieve the regulatory consistency of Europe Topics: Casino & games Lottery Sports betting Africa’s regulatory climate is evolving but, as Joanne Christie explains, it has a some challenges to overcome before achieving the level of consistency experienced in Europe.When it comes to igaming regulation, it’s fair to say that Africa is lagging behind many other parts of the world. According to H2 estimates, the percentage of igaming activity on the continent that was ‘white market’ was just 47.1% last year, whereas in Europe the percentage was 75.1%.Unfortunately, H2 predictions for the coming years don’t suggest a great deal of improvement in the balance between white and grey markets is likely, at least not imminently, with the percentage only expected to be just over 50% by 2023.In some respects, recent Africa regulatory changes seem to be taking the continent backwards instead of forwards when it comes to moving the market to a more regulated position. Take South Africa, for example, which is by far and away the most developed regulated market in Africa.Lawmakers in the country have recently tabled a Gambling Amendment Bill that would seem certain to drive more online activity in the country into the illegal market. In addition to the fact it does nothing to open up the online gaming market, it also recommends measures that are likely to have a huge impact on the highly lucrative betting on lottery market that exists in the country.And in Kenya, government officials caused chaos in the licensed market when they raised the gambling tax to 35% of revenues, from 7.5%, in January this year. The move led a number of operators to pull out of the market and saw SportPesa terminate its sponsorship of the Kenyan Premier League and the other sporting teams it sponsored.However, there are some bright spots in Africa, says Yahaya Maikori, senior partner at Nigerian law firm Law Allianz. “Botswana is way ahead in terms of regulation; in the online space they are ahead of even South Africa,” he says. “Botswana has already included online gaming in their regulation, although Botswana has only two million people, which is just a small portion of one of the states in Nigeria.”Lack of understanding Part of the problem in getting to a more regulated position across the continent is that there has been a lack of understanding from governments and regulators when it comes to gambling, particularly online gambling. “As it stands right now we are not getting any government support,” says Hammed Rashid Tunde Ali, former chairman of the Ghana Gaming Commission and now a consultant to igaming firms. “Until recently they didn’t really understand what gaming was all about. Right now the industry players have to do more to increase awareness.”In many countries in Africa there are also negative perceptions about the gambling industry, many of which are rooted in religious or tribal perceptions about the morality of gambling. This has fed through to regulators, says Garron Whitesman, partner at South African law firm Whitesman Lurie Attorneys.“There still continues to be a regulatory suspicion, particularly in developing countries – we see this in India, we see it in China and we see it across Africa – about gambling even though gambling is prolific. I think it is endogenous to policymakers. I think there is a fundamental lack of understanding as well, but having said that we do see it changing.”But this change is often hamstrung by resourcing constraints, says Maikori. “Most regulators are just getting used to the idea of the gaming industry, especially sports betting, which is very popular in Africa, and they are also just getting used to the idea that the whole industry is technology driven. Then they find themselves not as resourced as they need to be to know exactly what is happening.“Most are at the point where they are wondering, ‘do we regulate this industry or do we ban it?’ I think they realise they are better off regulating it but do they have the resources to regulate this industry? That is where most of the jurisdictions are right now.”In Mozambique, another of the bright spots in terms of regulation in Africa with four or five licensed sportsbooks already taking online bets, this is one of the issues hampering further development  of its regulated market, says Felix Mukaxe, gaming inspector  at the Mozambique Gaming Board. He says he was forced to cancel his planned trip to iGB Live! earlier this year due to  budget issues. “One of the constraints that we have is that we are a government department. Our gaming board is a government department, not independent, so we work with budgets which are very tight sometimes. That means we have challenges to attend conferences in Europe.”Talking tax Nevertheless, countries such as Mozambique are increasingly becoming interested in attracting more operators to their markets due to the potential to raise much-needed taxes. “We have taken that decision to make our market grow because before that the market was very small and it was not growing but with online gaming it is growing,” says Mukaxe. “We are increasing our tax revenues and another benefit is that we use part of the revenues for good causes, for social causes, so we benefit from that.”Unfortunately, in Africa – and it’s worth mentioning this has also happened in more developed parts of the world – some governments get carried away at the prospect of additional revenues and end up setting tax rates too high to allow their market to thrive.In cases such as Kenya, we’ve yet to see a backtracking of the punitive tax rate and Maikori says this has definitely slowed the market. “The tax change did not only dampen spirits, a couple of people have pulled out.”Some policymakers are more willing to listen to the sector than others, however. James Mpiirwe, board secretary at Uganda’s National Gaming Board, admits Uganda made the same mistake as Kenya, but says it quickly reversed the decision. “We increased ours to 35% as well and got a very bad backlash from the sector. It was done by parliament, misadvised and we got a backlash from the operators so we withdrew very quickly.”The issues with setting tax are tied in to the more general lack of understanding, says Whitesman. “Setting gambling taxes is a sophisticated exercise as it is. You’ve got to know what you are doing.  I think it has got to be realistic and I don’t think that the regulators quite appreciate by and large that gambling businesses don’t work on as large a margin as they think they do. I think they are under the impression that all gambling businesses simply print money.”Could operators be part of the solution? While there may currently be a lack of understanding among some Africa regulators, Mukaxe says Mozambique, for example, is keen to learn from companies operating in highly regulated markets in Europe. “We are willing to partner with good operators from Europe that can bring technology to Mozambique and help us to consolidate our regulation and to consolidate our market.”Mpiirwe says that one of the reasons Uganda revised its gambling legislation in 2016 was to make the country “more attractive to international operators”. Although enforcement of illegal operators is minimal in Africa and operators can quite easily set up unlicensed operations,  Whitesman says there has been a shift in attitude in recent years and  that operators themselves are now driving the move towards greater  regulation.“We have seen a change in mindset in the last five years or so. You will always get operators that will be prepared to operate in a grey and/or black environment, but what we’ve started to see, and I think it started with the increased state-by-state regulatory regime  that started to come through in Europe, is that most decent operators  are starting to adopt the mindset of being regulated in virtually every  single territory that they can.”Although the pace of change may be slower than some would like, most seem to agree that the impetus is certainly there for a substantial increase in regulation in Africa. “I can see it is improving,” says Ali. “In the next five years I am sure most of the regulators will be up to date and with internet penetration also improving the prospects look much brighter.”Whether or not the increase in regulation will drive a significant change in the number of illegal operators in the market remains to be seen, but it seems that many African regulators are at least moving in the right direction.

Central PA: Presiding Bishop celebrates 30 years of Jubilee Ministry

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA September 14, 2013 at 1:25 am As a Jubilee Center Coordinator (St. Matthew/San Mateo, Auburn, WA) in the Diocese of Olympia and as assisting DJO I am so heartened to see this recognition of the Jubilee tradition of local Jubilee Center ministries – in our case we serve immigrant communities, focusing on grass roots community organizing for immigration reform, worker justice and economic development. In addition we work with survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking. I am certain each Jubilee Center has it’s unique community story. If anyone happens to be in Auburn, Washington on a Wednesday afternoon please stop by for our community Zumba night!

Photo: Diocese of Central Pennsylvania[Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori visited St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 7 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Jubilee Ministry Center. She met with the Jubilee Officers in the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania and reviewed the varieties of ministries that have emerged.She also honored the Rt. Rev. Charlie McNutt, retired bishop of the diocese, and the Rev. Canon Peter Greenfield, who was priest at St. Mark’s when former Presiding Bishop John Allin recognized the parish as the first Jubilee Center. “What started as a spark has grown into a flame that has spread across the church,” she observed.Jefferts Schori affirmed the importance of their outreach ministries in very different kinds of communities.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Central Pennsylvania Bishop Nathan Baxter bless the people of St.Mark’s, Lewistown, and clergy of the diocese during a service of celebration for 30 years of Jubilee Ministry. Photo: Diocese of Central Pennsylvania“Our Jubilee Centers serve communities as small as Renovo and as large as Lancaster and Harrisburg,” said Central Pennsylvania Bishop Nathan Baxter. “In every case they ask how the people of God can serve this community.” Each Jubilee Center represents a unique response to the needs of their community.“We see these centers as deep expressions of what Jesus proclaimed,” Jefferts Schori noted. Such ministries foster ecumenical partnerships and invite creative leadership. “Jubilee ministry means getting out of ourselves and inviting new people into community with us,” she added. “The church has been revitalized because we focus on common mission and turn away from minor differences.”[A copy of the presiding bishop’s sermon is available here.]With more than 600 Jubilee Centers in the United States, the Episcopal Church continues to foster new ways to respond to domestic poverty and the challenges of environmental sustainability.On Sunday, Sept. 8, Jefferts Schori visited St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in State College to celebrate a liturgy that was created by a dedicated team of young adults.Sophia Reeder, a young adult from the Williamsport area and student at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, spoke to the gathering. “We are all familiar with the balancing act we do between school, social life, sleep, exercise, etc, etc… There’s a lot of intentional planning that goes into that.““But what about our relationship with God? Do we plan time for prayers? Do we take time to give thanks for our blessings? Do we take time to listen to God, not just to talk at him?  Are we honest in our relationships with him, or do we treat God like a heavenly ATM, prayers in, blessings out!“The Eucharist was the closing of a day-long Vocare event that hosted 33 young adults from the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania.

Cerro Monjas, situated in the heart of the city’s natural amphitheatre, is amongst the most beautiful hills of Valparaíso. Despite architectural challenges to build upon considerably steep slopes, a habitable neighbourhood has emerged as a result of the implementation of large retaining walls built to defy the naturally complex topography. Cerro Monjas possesses considerable elevation relative to the downtown area, providing its inhabitants with close proximity to the centre of town and privileged panoramic views.Save this picture!Courtesy of Molo ArquitectosUrban settlement patterns moulding to the natural landscape have resulted in a neighbourhood made up of compacted narrow streets and alleys with a cohesive community feel. Harmonious coexistence between vernacular structures and works of high architectural value, such as the traditional funicular (ascensor Monjas), and numerous historical properties, allow the neighbourhood to retain its authentic, historical feel. The layout of the neighbourhood, comprised in its majority of small lots, hinders further land speculation for large-scale real estate projects that have become commonplace in other parts of the city.Save this picture!Courtesy of Molo Arquitectos“Casa Monjas” was developed as a stylistic reflection of the surrounding neighbourhood in response to a complex urban layout.Save this picture!Courtesy of Molo ArquitectosLayout. Conceptually, the house is composed of two volumetric types that define its layout: Firstly, a solid layer composed of a large retaining wall was used to create a virtually non-existent horizontal plane amidst the uneven topography and a steep slope, accentuating the forces of gravity exerted on the property. Secondly, resting upon the first layer is a light, aerial layer defined by the interior spaces of the first and second floors.Save this picture!SectionMaterials. To represent the stark contrasts present within the terrain, the base layer is composed of rectangular fibre-cement plaque and painted dark grey, while the superior aerial layer is dressed in horizontal layers of corrugated sheet metal.Save this picture!Courtesy of Molo ArquitectosSlopes. While the compact solid base layer does not demand attention, it serves the function of accentuating the verticality of the terrain upon which the home was constructed. When viewed from Valenzuela Puelma Street, as shown in the photo above, the slope of the street becomes apparent in comparison to the horizontal lines present within the exterior coating.

The elevated second layer rests upon the base structure forming an “L” shaped cantilever that emerges from both sides accentuating its perceived weightlessness.

Attack on Orthodox Jew investigated as possible hate crime: NYPD

first_imgWABC(NEW YORK) — Police are searching for a suspect who punched an Orthodox Jewish man in New York City just two days before the start of Hanukkah.The incident occurred Friday about 6:40 p.m. in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg section, according to the NYPD. Surveillance video shows a man sneaking up behind the victim and punching him.ABC station WABC is reporting that the victim is a 33-year-old man, but he has not been publicly released.The victim appeared to be wearing a shtreimel, which is a fur hat commonly worn by some Hasidic Jewish men.The NYPD describes the suspect as being between 30 and 35 years old, standing about 5-feet-10-inches tall and weighing 250 pounds.The investigation started as an assault investigation and now the department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating it is a bias crime.The Anti-Defamation League is also offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects involved in that attack, as well as another alleged assault the next morning.The police have not connected the two alleged incidents.ADL regional director Evan Bernstein said the organization is “increasingly concerned” about recent incidents, including a “number of alleged unprovoked assaults on Orthodox Jewish individuals in Brooklyn in recent weeks.”“Our Orthodox communities are particularly vulnerable, and Jewish communities are feeling increasingly afraid,” Bernstein said in a statement.There have been other reported incidents both elsewhere in New York and across the country.On Nov. 28, a Columbia University professor found her office vandalized with swastikas and anti-Semitic words.And on Nov. 29, an African-American mural in Los Angeles was also reportedly vandalized with swastikas.The late October shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue in which 11 people were killed was believed to be the deadliest attack on Jews in the United States.“We know that hate is affecting many communities, and we must stand strong and send a unified message to combat it at all levels,” Bernstein said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
