GC to review on-course bookmaker licences after underage betting The GB Gambling Commission is to review seven on-course bookmakers’ licences after it was revealed that a number allowed minors to place a bet during the prestigious Royal Ascot horseracing event.Last month police officers from the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, supported by the Commission and Trading Standards, carried out age verification purchasing tests during the event, which ran from 18 to 22 June.The investigation revealed that of the 17 on-course operators tested, seven permitted a 16 year-old to place a £5 bet in-person, in breach of the 18+ age restriction on betting. The Commission did not reveal the identity of the bookmakers involved, though it did confirm that the seven will face disciplinary action.“These licence reviews show how strongly we feel about underage gambling,” GC executive director Richard Watson said. “Every single gambling business must protect children from gambling but the on-course bookmakers results have remained unacceptable.”Watson also said the on-course sector had a history of failing age verification exercises, with an average pass rate of just 35% over the past four years.“Despite various educational attempts to raise standards, by ourselves and the trade bodies, the on-course sector has historically performed poorly in both underage gambling test purchase exercises and Think 21 testing,” he said. “Pass rates have failed to meet the standards expected and the sector has consistently performed to levels below those we see in other gambling and age restricted products.“We welcome the positive initiate by the local authority and the racecourse to raise standards in the gambling industry.”Cllr David Cannon, lead member for Public Protection at the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, added: “I am delighted that our officers led and organised this test purchasing. It is important that our residents, as well as visitors to the borough, are kept safe. It is not acceptable to take bets from young people and I am pleased that strong action is taking place.“Our hard working team of officers will often carry out test purchasing across the borough to ensure our residents are kept safe and that traders are abiding by the rules.”Image: Dunphasizer Regions: UK & Ireland Tags: Race Track and Racino Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Horse racing Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address

This article appeared in the June 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Working Partnership: Dan Lydiate and Sam Warbuton started all five of Wales’ 2011 Six Nations gamesThe skies over Cardiff may be grey but the disposition of Dan Lydiate and Sam Warburton is anything but. And why shouldn’t Wales’ two young flankers be happy? They were standout performers for their country in this year’s RBS 6 Nations, they have formed a dynamic partnership on the pitch and they’re good mates off it. We chat to the pair of aces… RUGBY WORLD: You two seem to have great banter with each other… SAM WARBURTON: We have a good laugh. Every time Wales have a Test, the combinations are put together so as flankers we’ve roomed together a few times now.DAN LYDIATE: He makes the teas!SW: We like a chocolate-coated protein bar and a cup of tea, then we watch TV like The Weakest Link.DL: We have good conversations, too, and debates – about power cleans and so on.SW: He talks about farming and shows me pictures of tractors on his phone.DL: I want to take him out there and show him what real work is.RW: So are you competitive when it comes to power cleans and gym work? SW: Dan would win by a country mile, excuse the pun. He’s the strongest guy in the squad.DL (shaking his head): He’s bigging me up – you can tell we’re tight! I suppose weights help in a way, but it’s completely different when you’re in a game; when you’re on the field it’s not just about brute strength.SW: In campaigns like the Six Nations, mineand Dan’s bodies take a battering so a lot of training is about injury management so we’re fit for the weekend. Some of the guys had a couple of social beers after some games, but we’re not big drinkers and our bodies were in bits so we went back to our room and had a protein shake and chat. I used to be in the gym a lot, but after talking to some of the senior players I came to realise that the most important thing is to be fit for weekend, not to be the strongest in the squad. You can’t push your body too far.DL: As you play more rugby you can’t lift as regularly as you want to. I spend all of pre-season getting as strong as I can for September and then I’ll dig in and use what I’ve built up. Hopefully that gets me through the season.SW: After a game it can take 48 hours before you feel normal again. It’s all about recovery. We might be held back from contact as our shoulders can be sore. RW: Did you enjoy your run in the Wales starting XV? SW: They’ve put faith in us and we appreciate that. There are a lot more senior back-row players being left out of the team and I still feel privileged to be picked.DL: We don’t take our places for granted. After games we’ll always talk about how it went and whether we think we did enough for next week.SW: People keep talking about us and we’ve got lot of publicity but I never buy the newspapers…DL: I buy them and give them to him because he’s tight! I highlight the articles he’s in.SW: With the press, even if 1,000 people read it, it’s still only one person’s opinion so I don’t take much notice.DL: We want to push on and get better as players. I’m sure Sam feels he’s nowhere near where he wants to be as a player. We’re not here for a long time, so we’ve got to make the most of it.RW: What’s the biggest difference between regional and international rugby? SW: The speed the game is played at. If you look at the stats in a regional game, your match instances – the number of times you’re involved – range from 40 to 60. In international rugby your involvement is up to 80 or 90. That’s a huge increase sometimes. The Magners League is the first step, then the Heineken Cup, and it’s another big step to international rugby. That’s why I respect someone like George North coming in and having a really good game on his debut, scoring two tries.DL: Physically it’s the same, it’s just the speed it’s played at.RW: Are you two vocal in team meetings? DL: I don’t say much. If there’s something I blatantly want to get off my chest I’ll get it across, but most of the time I keep quiet and get on with my work.SW: We’re naturally quite quiet people. The longer we’re here, the more we’ll contribute, but for now we keep our heads down and do whatever we can to get picked. We’re quiet guys off the pitch, so it’s about what we feel comfortable with. Before a game some guys will bang the walls but we just sit quietly. I listen to a few songs I listened to as a kid.DL: The hokey-cokey!SW: More heavy metal, American bands like Anthrax and Metallica.DL: I just take it all in and get in my own frame of mind ready to play the match.RW: What do you bring to the Wales team? DL: Good looks! And (nodding towards Sam) personality. Strong arms as well!SW: What does Dan bring? On the defensive side of things, he’s the biggest hitter in the squad and the coaches look at Dan as an offensive tackler. So Dan’s tackling is a big plus.DL: Sam’s nickname is Count Jackula for his jackling ability. He’s good in the contact area to be fair. That’s every seven’s thing – the breakdown. If we come up against him at regional level, he’s a man to target as he slows down a lot of ball and I expect international teams do the same.Lydiate(6) and Warburton unite to stop Italy’s Sergio ParisseRW: Do you think you work well together? DL: It’s weird. We never played in the age groups together, but in our first Wales game together we just clicked really quickly.SW: I know how Dan plays now. I know that if a player is running at Dan that player is likely to be knocked backwards nine times out of ten, so I can then plan what I’m going to do, whether or not to compete at the breakdown. We will often look back at the video and we’re not far away from each other most of the time – we hunt in pairs. It does work pretty well and we’ll also have a word in each other’s ear during a game if we think a certain situation is an opportunity for a turnover. We are both young so we’re happy to talk to each other whereas we don’t want to seem patronising or bigger than our boots with the older, more experienced players.RW: What’s the biggest thing you’ve learnt so far? SW: I’m learning all the time and the little things I pick up from international rugby I take back to my region, then things get ingrained over time. Probably the biggest thing I take from international rugby is confidence.DL: When you come up against New Zealand and hold your own against teams like that, it’s great for confidence.RW: Who has been your toughest opponent? SW: Richie McCaw is called the best openside flanker in the world, but the one I had most trouble with was David Pocock. I’ve never played against anyone so aggressive on the ball. His upper-body strength and body position in contact are second to none. It was a massive test for me. I spent the whole 80 minutes constantly watching for where he was – man-marking someone for 80 minutes is as mentally tiring as it is physically tiring.DL: Sam’s played against him too and the hardest player I’ve come up against to tackle is Henry Tuilagi. He’s a man-mountain.SW: I’d agree with that – he’s the hardest person to tackle.RW: Have you been thinking about the World Cup? SW: I was really disappointed in the hospital last summer when I found out I had a broken jaw so I was going to miss the tour. It was all doom and gloom, but then I thought I’d have a chance to goto New Zealand next year for the World Cup. I’ve always wanted to go there.DL: I went on a family holiday in 2005 for the Lions tour. The World Cup’s always been in the back of my mind, but I just concentrate on the next game and I want to keep going well.SW: The squad is maturing and getting better all the time, so we’ve a good chance of getting to the latter stages. The main thing is to stay injury-free and look after yourself. The quarter-finals is our minimum target. We’re probably the second favourites in the group behind South Africa, but we’re confident we could beat South Africa. If we play to our potential, we can beat them.DL: If we click, then we can beat anyone.SW: Everything is in place. We’ve got training camps in Poland, Tests in the summer – everyone will be in the best condition of their careers. Lydiate (left) and Warburton (right) have been joined by Ryan Jones (centre) in Wales’ back row RW: What are your World Cup memories? SW: My best memory is of 2003 when Jonny Wikinson dropped the goal to win it – and I was supporting England at the time. Both my parents are English so I’m not like other Welsh people who hate the English and I enjoyed watching that final. I never thought I’d be able to take part in a World Cup. If someone had told me that at the time, I wouldn’t have believed them and now it’s within my grasp I’m so excited.DL: My father is English so I’ve not got a big thing about hating England either, although when I’m playing them I obviously want to beat them, like any team. I just remember the last World Cup and Wales being beaten by Fiji. That was a big loss for us.RW: What do you guys do in your spare time? DL: If I have a couple of days off I head back to see the family and do a bit on the farm. The rugby environment can be a bit of a fishbowl, so it’s good to do something out of it. The drive up to Mid-Wales from Newport can clear my head, so every couple of weeks I go there and switch off.SW: I appreciate any day off; I put my feet up and watch TV. I’ve just bought a new drum kit too, so I want to make better progress with that and play a bit more.DL: I want to learn the guitar.RW: Perhaps you could form a band with Jamie Roberts… SW: Jamie’s too cheesy for us and would cost too much money.DL: We could be Simon and Garfunkel.SW: Or Robson and Jerome. RW: What are your post-rugby plans? DL: I do want to farm. My older brother works it at the minute, so I’d go into partnership with him and live off the fruit of the land in God’s country! We lamb 700 and have 500 acres.SW: I’m quite keen on property. I like watching Property Ladder, Escape to the Country, Grand Designs, so I’d like to get into that. RW: Is there anything you’d like to add? SW: I think we’ve covered all the bases. Just that he’s weird.DL: I prefer special.A few quick fire questions with Sam… Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here.

Lil’ Bobby Hutton BBQ.The “Lil’ Bobby Hutton BBQ for the People” was held in Oakland, Calif., on April 6, with about 75 people enjoying free food, speakers and entertainment. Lil’ Bobby was killed by the Oakland Police Department prior to his having a “Feeding The People” function at DeFremery Park in Oakland.Mumia Abu-Jamal notes in “We Want Freedom,” his highly praised book on the Black Panthers, “Bobby Hutton, the Party’s first martyr, [was] killed by Oakland cops as he surrendered with Eldridge Cleaver on April 6, 1968.” (p. 71)Community members in 2012 organized a “Take Back the Town BBQ” at what is known today as Lil’ Bobby Hutton Park.The theme of this year’s event was “Speaking Up Against Violence.” Speakers included Dinyal New, who spoke about her horrifying experience in the death of her two sons, Lamar Devante Broussard and Lee Edward Weathersby. Tameka Rothschild spoke about the death of her son, Derryck Harris.The Black Riders Liberation Party made an appeal for support for Jihad Mujahid Muhammad, a BRLP member who has been in jail for a year and is now facing new charges in Santa Clara County, Calif. If found guilty on this new charge, brought just before his release from prison, Muhammad would face third-strike mandatory sentencing.Muhammad was a participant in the California prisoners’ hunger strike last summer. A benefit was held for him the evening of April 6, with about 50 people attending.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The partnership supports Villa Esperanza’s nine programs for children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities.When renown jewelry designer and trend forecaster, Nadia Lee, gave birth to her little girl, she wanted to abide to the family tradition of giving her daughter a genuine gold keepsake to safeguard her peace and prosperity. After an exhaustive search, and unable to find anything in genuine gold or attractive, Nadia ultimately decided to design one herself; producing a one-off fine jewelry using her baby’s name. For Nadia, it was a necklace to be worn as a new mom to celebrate the birth of her child, in addition to being an heirloom with a personal touch when it is passed on.The partnership with Villa Esperanza Services was launched last fall after Nadia and her husband Joseph toured Villa Esperanza Services to learn more about services for children with disabilities. “As parents, we have an intuitive realization throughout the process of giving birth and upbringing a child, how precious the health and development of a child is,” Lee shares. “It is a sentiment that touches us whenever we see, read and hear of other children and their circumstances, especially ones in need. It is something we wanted Rank and Issue to embody; that along with the celebration of our loved ones, we should also give thanks, and give back.” A portion of each purchase from the Rank & Issue line supports Villa Esperanza Services.Villa Esperanza Services, established in 1961, is a non-profit serving children, adults and seniors with intellectual/developmental disabilities including more than twenty different diagnoses. Villa’s wide variety of programs and services assists more than 600 individuals and their families each year in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Villa offers nine programs including a school for children up to the age of 22 years; a Speech and Language Center and Occupational Therapy Clinic providing children, adults and seniors with comprehensive therapies; employment services; day programs for adults; and adult residences. To learn more about Villa’s collaborative approach, visit www.VillaEsperanzaServices.org.About Rank & Issue: Every single piece of Rank and Issue fine jewelry is uniquely designed and produced with absolute care, a timely process that is certain of its result.

WTVD-TVBy HALEY YAMADA, ABC News(RALEIGH, N.C.) — Two children are missing after an overnight flash flood swept their mother’s car off the road outside Raleigh, North Carolina on Tuesday.Up to 7 inches of rain fell in some parts of the state overnight on Monday, leading to supercharged flooding.First responders were initially able to rescue the mother and one of the children, but fast-moving water capsized the recovery boat and the child slipped away. Both children remain missing.“They got into the water and they were able to rescue the child, a child and the mother,” said Smithfield Fire Chief John Blanton. “The water was so turbulent that the boat capsized. And they lost the child. They were able to regain the mother.”According to Blanton, a total of four swiftwater rescue boats capsized in the extreme current. Rescuers have since found the mother’s car, but no sign of the two children. Rescue efforts have expanded and searchers are now using a helicopter to look for the missing kids from above.Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell announced Tuesday evening that the search for the children has been suspended for the night and will continue as a search and rescue mission at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to ABC affiliate, WTVD-TV.Not far from the scene of the missing children, an elderly couple was rescued after their car overturned on a rain-slicked I-95.Witnesses who saw the accident sprang into action and helped them. Neither appeared to be seriously injured.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
