Lithuania regulator warns poker schools after legal case

first_img Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Poker Lithuania regulator warns poker schools after legal case AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 1st July 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Address Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Lithuania’s Gambling Authority has warned those organising poker training schemes after courts in the country dismissed a case filed by a poker school on the grounds that it required a player to play on illegal sites.Four plaintiffs, who organise a poker school, sued a defendant, a former customer, for €15,771, claiming they had entered into a contract in which the defendant would play online poker at increasingly difficult levels.The quartet would fund the player’s activity, and the individual was to then share 60% of their profits with the plaintiffs, retaining the remaining 40%. However, as online poker is not regulated in Lithuania, the player had to generate these profits by gambling on unlicensed sites.The organisers of the training system tried to end the contract after the defendant lost around €28,000 and sued for a refund of €15,771 in the Vilnius District Court. However, the court dismissed the case, as the contract was based around illegal activity.“According to the court, the plaintiffs were aware that the defendant was involved in illegal gambling, thus violating not only the provisions of the Law on Gambling of the Republic of Lithuania, but also the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing of the Republic of Lithuania,” the Gambling Authority explained.“Consequently, the applicants are not entitled to compensation for their losses from the illegal activities.”The regulator then noted that if players wish to legally practice their poker skills, they may do so only while playing for fun, rather than for money or online.The decision may still be appealed to the Vilnius Regional Court.

See all posts by Peter Stephens Enter Your Email Address How I’d invest £250 a month in UK shares for a passive income that beats the State Pension Making a passive income that beats the State Pension in retirement could be made easier through investing in a diverse range of UK shares. Historically, indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have offered higher returns than other popular assets such as cash and bonds. They also offer greater accessibility than buy-to-let investments.Following the stock market crash, many British shares are trading at low prices. As such, investing money in them now may provide greater scope for high capital returns. And that leads to a larger nest egg in the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Buying UK shares to build a passive incomeThe long-term recovery prospects of UK shares after the stock market crash could mean they offer scope to produce a worthwhile passive income in retirement. For example, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 currently trade 15-20% below their levels from the start of the year.Many of their members are trading at even bigger discounts to their 2020 starting prices. This suggests they could benefit from a long-term stock market recovery.Clearly, there’s no guarantee the stock market will return to its previous highs to produce a worthwhile passive income. Furthermore, risks such as Brexit and a challenging economic outlook may mean paper losses in the short run.However, investing regularly for the long term could take advantage of stock market volatility. It may mean purchasing shares as they fall, thereby obtaining a lower average price from which capital gains can be made.With the stock market having a long track record of recovering from its variety of downturns, a long-term horizon is likely to mean sufficient time for it to deliver a turnaround. This could allow today’s investments in UK shares to produce a generous nest egg. And that should provide a passive income to be drawn in retirement.Beating the State PensionOf course, obtaining a passive income in older age may become more important as a result of the somewhat disappointing State Pension. It currently amounts to around a third of the average UK salary. And that could prove insufficient to provide financial freedom in older age.Assuming an 8% annual return (which is in line with the FTSE 100’s past performance) is obtained on a monthly investment of £250, a nest egg of £375,000 could be generated over a 30-year time period. From this, a 4% annual withdrawal would amount to £15,000.However, investing in undervalued UK shares after the stock market crash could lead to higher returns. And a larger passive income in retirement. They may have greater scope to deliver capital gains, since they’re starting from a relatively low price level.Therefore, now could be an opportune moment to start investing regularly in a diverse range of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares. Certainly while they continue to offer wide margins of safety in many cases.

Archbishop in Jerusalem: ‘Our shared humanity is the way to…

first_img Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR June 27, 2013 at 3:19 pm Harriet Sherwood in The Guardian has more on the trip here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/27/palestinian-christians-acrchbishop-canterbury?CMP=twt_fdI hope ENS will have more as well. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Lambeth Palace] Peace cannot be found without recognizing each other’s humanity, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said June 26 in Jerusalem.Finding ways of living together after the “great traumas and tragedies of so many years” is “a huge challenge,” the archbishop told Christian leaders gathered in the Bishop’s Peace Garden at the city’s Anglican Cathedral.But “there is no other way than finding each others’ humanity, recognizing it, and seeing in it the image of God,” he added.Welby was speaking at a reception in his honor in the Peace Garden at St George’s Cathedral, hosted by Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani.The reception was attended by local Christians leaders from different denominations, along with diplomats, ambassadors and Palestinian civil society leaders.In his first visit to the Holy Land since his installation earlier this year, Welby said he sought “to serve all the people of this region, without exception” and that he prays for “peace with justice and security.”Acknowledging the profound significance of Jerusalem for all its faith communities, the archbishop said it was “essential” that it remains “an open city,” with Christians, Muslims and Jews having “full access” to their holy sites.The archbishop, who prayed at the Western Wall yesterday and will also visit Al-Haram Al-Sharif and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, added that it is “essential that round the world we support those who bear the burden of ensuring the openness of those holy sites and who are the stewards of this place in the face of challenges that are different in each generation.”Opening the evening, Dawani told Welby he was “deeply grateful for your presence in Jerusalem.”By hosting Welby in the recently opened Bishop’s Peace Garden, Dawani said he was marking his commitment “to peace and reconciliation between the three official religions and two peoples of the Holy Land.”He added that the tranquil garden, with its 200-year-old olive trees, was itself a symbol of “the peace mentioned in all three holy books.”“And like all gardens, it teaches us that what we tend to most will do best,” he said.Dawani, who next month will host the cathedral’s annual Iftar meal to celebrate with Muslims the break of the Ramadan fast, said that “by this peace garden, located in the heart of Jerusalem, we state clearly that it is peace that we seek, it is peace that we need, and it is peace that we work towards.”Read the addresses by Archbishop Justin and Bishop Suheil: Archbishop Justin’s address to Christian leaders at St George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem, 26 June 2013 Your Beatitudes, Your Eminences, Your Graces, distinguished guests, thank you for your very warm welcome indeed. It’s thirty-three years since I was first here. I was with my wife, and we were actually on honeymoon, and we stayed here at St George’s. It was very different – much less comfortable, but no less welcoming. It has always been a place of welcome, and, Bishop Suheil, this is a warm welcome indeed this evening and I congratulate you on this new garden. I also thank the church leaders for the enormous welcome that they have brought today.It’s always fascinating being introduced at these things. Thank you, Mr Dean, for your introduction and kind welcome. Several people today have said, ‘We read about you and we know that you think this or that or the other.’ Well let me say, don’t believe what you read in the papers.I’ll say a couple of things. First of all, I spent long enough in business to believe in blunt speaking, so I will be short and to the point. It has been a very warm welcome today, and it’s a great pleasure to be here, having the opportunity to refresh my experience of the work of the Anglican diocese here in this area. One of the things that most strikes me since I was last here is the great warmth between the churches here in Jerusalem. It was very noticeable today, Your Beatitudes, at the meeting this afternoon, the real sense of unity, and I praise god for that.The Anglican diocese operates in five countries and, as the Anglican Communion all over the world, makes an enormous contribution to the wellbeing of the societies in which it is present. As we’ve heard, it runs school, hospitals, clinics – we’re opening a new clinic tomorrow – and this is what Anglicanism does throughout the world. It is an extraordinary part of the Church and a huge privilege to be involved in it.The life of the Church springs from its experience of the love of Jesus Christ, the love of God through Jesus Christ, which overflows to the communities around us. And that is indeed the challenge for our churches throughout the world, and especially this part of the world. Jerusalem is, as we know, the centre of the world in so many ways. The centre of three great faiths, the centre of much of the news that we hear; the centre in both good ways and bad ways. It is essential that Jerusalem remains an open city, with full access to the religious sites which are holy to three faiths. And it is essential that round the world we support those who bear the burden of ensuring the openness of those holy sites and who are the stewards of this place in the face of challenges that are different in each generation. Those challenges will in the end, as we have heard so eloquently already from Bishop Suheil and from His Beatitude the Patriarch, that can only be faced with clear speaking and can only be achieved when there is peace with justice and security for all the people of the region. Where people are left out, there will be no security, no justice, no peace.Finding ways of living together after the great traumas, tragedies, of so many years is a huge challenge. And it will come when there is a change of heart. Bishop Suheil spoke so eloquently and so powerfully, and I want to echo his words: that where we seek power and security, we will find neither. The teaching of Jesus Christ is when we give our lives away, then we find what we seek. And I thank you, Bishop, for your witness and testimony in this area.His Beatitude the Patriarch spoke earlier at our meeting this afternoon of reconciliation. And that has been a passion of mine for many, many years. Partly in this area, but also in other parts of the world where there is also great killing and great suffering. Reconciliation comes from knowing our own reconciliation and our own peace, and it leads, as we are reconciled to God – and as Christians we believe we are reconciled to God through the love and grace of Jesus Christ – we are able to offer hospitality and holiness to those with whom we disagree, and find their humanity, and find love, and find reconciliation. There is no other way than finding each others’ humanity, recognising it, and seeing in it the image of God.I was deeply grateful today for the award that the Patriarch so kindly gave me of the Holy Sepulchre. It is a great privilege to have been drawn into your fellowship. It’s a privilege I hope to continue over these years that God gives me in this work, and to seek – with so many others around the world – to serve all the people of this region, without exception, but seeking also and always praying for peace with justice and security. Thank you for your welcome.Bishop Suheil Dawani’s address at St George’s Cathedral, Jerusalem, 26 June 2013Good evening, friends, Your Beatitudes, Bishops, Excellences, clergy, ladies and gentlemen. This evening we are gathered with our very special and honoured guest, His Grace the Most Revered Justin Welby, the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury and his wife, and the rest of the delegation. It is his first visit to the Holy Land in his new ministry, and the first official function to be held in this new Bishop’s Peace Garden.I am deeply grateful for your presence in Jerusalem, Your Grace. Hosting you in this garden marks the commitment of my episcopacy to peace and reconciliation between the three official religions and two peoples of the Holy Land. This garden, with its 200-year-old olive trees, is itself a symbol of the peace mentioned in all three holy books. It provides us with the opportunity to be still, and to know tranquility amidst the business of life. And like all gardens, it teaches us that what we tend to most will do best.By this Peace Garden, located in the heart of Jerusalem, we state clearly that it is peace that we seek, it is peace that we need, and it is peace that we work toward. A peace that is not merely the absence of tension, but is accompanied by justice. This Bishop’s Peace Garden reminds us, too, that peace is the namesake of the Holy City of Jerusalem. While often without peace, it is nonetheless the city of peace. Our striving towards being an open city, where all can know the God of peace who desires that all human beings gather in harmony, acceptance, affirmation and reconciliation.With our various Christian traditions, as well as what our brothers of Islam and Judaism, we make every effort to build cohesive relationships. In just a few weeks from now, for example, I will be hosting here our annual iftar to mark the break of the Ramadan fast. With our Muslims brothers we will share a meal and continue our modeling of living together in peace and harmony. For the three Abrahamic faiths, the city of Jerusalem is sacred and holy. Gathering at her holy sites, adherants for all three faiths are called to love God and to love neighbour. Within this simple but powerful calling is found our peace. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. As Martin Luther King Jr said, peace is not kept by force, but by understanding. It is manifest through compassion, where the power of love is the greater than the love of power.As Christians, we are commanded to love God with all our heart, mind and strength, and to love our neighbour as ourselves. We have the privilege, and also the obligation, to keep the hope of peace alive in the hearts of our people, knowing that violence and war will bring more suffering and destruction.As the city of three faiths and two peoples – as well as the place pilgrimage for the whole world – we must do our part to ensure that Jerusalem is a city of peace. It needs not to be at the expense of one another’s uniqueness; but rather, by making the Holy City truly safe, and inclusive of our diversity.As a small but strong presence here in Jerusalem and the region, the Anglican Church has a profound and important role to play. Our embrace of God in Jesus Christ allows us to serve both the divine and the human in equality important ways. God is both transcendent and immanent in our understanding of the holy. And we are rightly dedicated to the glorifying of God and serving of humanity. Our rightful place in the temple is balanced with our rightful place in the city square. Since 1841, the Diocese of Jerusalem has glorified God and borne witness to the love of God for all people through our institutions of learning and healthcare. For more than 160 years Anglican presence in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East has been an extraordinary force for good. And more importantly, we are merely at the beginning of a bright future – capable of even greater and more effective ministry in all these important areas, including peace and reconciliation.Your Grace, we are grateful for your support and encouragement, as this visit affirms the historic and continuing importance presence of the Anglican church in the land of the Holy One. When I sent you an invitation to come to Jerusalem, even before your consecration, you said, “Yes, my first visit will be for Jerusalem and the Holy Land.” And thank you for that. With your help and support, our church will remain a strong and vibrant witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ. For our openness to others. For our affirmation of the three faiths and two peoples of the Holy Land. And for our being peacemakers in a region desperately in need of peaceful justice.With the wider community as represented here tonight, and also to have Mr Alami, a Muslim Jerusalemite, graduate of St George’s School in 1962, we extend to all the hand of friendship, of welcome, of inclusion, and of solidarity. We are committed to love of God and neighbour, where each person and each community can live in peace and harmony, and where everyone can be confident of safety and opportunity to live full, productive, free, just and peaceful lives. May almighty God continue to bless us as we, the Christians of Jerusalem, share with our Abrahamic brothers and sisters the mission of love, peace and reconciliation. May God bless you all and welcome, ahlan-wa-sahlan, thank you.

England beat Wales to win the IRB Junior World Championship 2013

first_imgMonday Jun 24, 2013 England beat Wales to win the IRB Junior World Championship 2013 England Under 20’s won the IRB Junior World Championship after coming from behind to beat Wales in the final in the north west of France yesterday. In the third place playoff, South Africa staged a comeback of their own as they beat New Zealand. Wales led 15-3 at halftime and looked on the way to their first ever JWC title, but failed to capitalise after England went down to 14 men and had a try disallowed shortly before the break.Jack Nowell and Sam Hill tries brought them back into the game before two penalties by Henry Slade extended the lead, earning them a well deserved victory after having been runners up three times in the past.Earlier a repeat of last year’s final saw South Africa come from behind to beat New Zealand in the third place playoff in Vannes. The Baby Blacks were up 21-0 at one stage, before the Baby Boks launched a comeback and won the game 41-24.“For the sixth year in a row, the IRB Junior World Championship has delivered brilliant matches, we’ve seen some magnificent skills on display and fans have witnessed top quality matches with open, running rugby,” said IRB Chairman Bernard Lapasset.IRB Junior Player of the Year 2013While it was disappointment for Wales in the final, young flyhalf Sam Davies was awarded the IRB Junior Player of the Year 2013 title following commanding performances throughout the tournament. He is the first Welshman to win the award, and the first to receive an IRB age grade honour since Gavin Henson was named IRB Young Player of the Year in 2001.“It is an honour, just to see the names of the other people that have had it before me, it makes it extra special. I’m gutted with the result today but this is a bonus picking up this Award,” he said.Elsewhere, France beat Argentina to finish in fifth place, Australia finished seventh after beating Ireland, Samoa defeated Scotland to claim ninth place, and the USA were relegated to the IRB Junior World Trophy after they were beaten by Fiji.Highlights of the final are below, and you can follow the links for the other games, or view allSouth Africa vs New Zealand | France vs Arg & Aus vs Ire | Fiji vs USA & Samoa vs ScotHiglights of the third place playoff between last year’s finalists, South Africa and New Zealand Highlights of France vs Argentina and Australia vs Ireland Highlights of Fiji vs USA and Samoa vs ScotlandADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error World Rugby U20 Championship Related Articles 104 WEEKS AGO Three sensational solo tries the pick of… 105 WEEKS AGO England’s Alfie Barbeary dismissed for dangerous… 156 WEEKS AGO France beat England to win their first ever… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The house is located in a residential neighborhood in Nova Oeiras in the Oeiras district, a neighborhood with a modernist urbanism, which is a great example of the concept called “garden city”. This neighborhood has an area of houses built in spacious plots, each with a leafy garden.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house appeared a bit unbalanced in its design. On the main façade[AA1] we had an interesting equilibrium with a porch and a balcony, but the rear façade had no valuable elements.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe extension consists in building a new volume attached to the rear façade of the old house, extending the house through the garden redesigning its backyard façade.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIn this new volume that extends the house, appears as a piece of contemporary architecture. To maintain the identity of the house, we reproduced from the porch, a hexagonal tile pattern to coat the new volume.Save this picture!SectionYou can see the pattern also on the sliding grates of the existing windows; this unifies both old and new, parts of the house.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGWe planned this enlargement of the main house as an autonomous and distinct volume but, at the same time, with a common element to both the original and the new construction.Save this picture!SectionOn the ground floor we created a spacious living room with a wide view to the garden. The kitchen contiguous but separated from the living room, enjoys the same great view as well through its large glass sliding doors.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFrom the lower step of the staircase to the right façade, we enlarged the window frame creating one single big glass screen. With this solution we gave natural light to the staircase, underlining its vertical amplitude.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGOn the first floor we have the private area, composed of one toilet, two bedrooms and a suite with a walk-in closet and a bathroom.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThese last three compartments are placed on the rear of the house offering natural sunlight and a view to the backyard. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessStanbrook Abbey / Feilden Clegg Bradley StudiosSelected ProjectsUncle’s House / 3 AtelierSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeJoão Tiago Aguiar ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOeirasPortugalPublished on August 01, 2016Cite: “Oeiras House / João Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos” 01 Aug 2016.

TCU housing still facing growing pains

Kennedy is from Danville, California and enjoys sports as well as traveling. Twitter ReddIt Twitter Linkedin Women’s tennis starts off strong in Big 12 play printTCU’s move to grow first-year enrollment is creating a housing squeeze on and off campus. This fall saw a 10 percent jump in the number of students living on campus, compared to last fall. But that growth comes at a price. Upper-division students continue to find themselves pushed off campus, while first-year students are living in converted lounges and forced triples.TCU has been on a residential housing building binge for several years but still cannot seem to meet demand. Last spring, 300 upper-division students who wanted to live on campus were turned away because there was no room, said Craig Allen, director of TCU Housing and Residence Life.But keeping upper-division students off campus doesn’t mean there’s room for all first-year students and sophomores, who are actually required to live on campus.There are 4,679 students on campus this fall, compared to 4,248 last fall, according to TCU’s Office of Institutional Research. For example, P.E. Clark hall was built with upper-division students in mind. This fall, more than half of its residents are first-year students. Another upper-division residence hall, King Hall, now has first-year students on two of its four floors. The increasing presence of first-year students in upper-division residence halls year after year is due to lack of room in first-year residence halls. Forced triples and converted lounges have been implemented in first-year residence halls in order to accommodate the high numbers of first-year students, but the rooms lack privacy and standard amenities.Converted lounges don’t have doors with standard locks, sinks or personal closets. Students living in forced triples must share amenities and lack space for personal belongings. First-year student and Moncrief resident, Gwenee Patkunas, lives in a forced triple.“TCU should have more housing options because it’s difficult for three girls to share two small closets and desks,” said Patkunas. “There’s definitely not enough room for all of our stuff.”  TCU’s housing squeeze on campus is not as temporary as the university would have hoped, said Allen.“My hope is that we will not have to have as many triples or lounges next year,” said Allen.center_img Women’s tennis to begin conference play at Baylor Kennedy Stadlerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kennedy-stadler/ Kennedy Stadlerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kennedy-stadler/ Facebook Kennedy Stadler Previous articleWhat we’re reading: Kavanaugh and Trump, per usualNext articleRenters insurance helps protect students against theft Kennedy Stadler RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Linkedin Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Kennedy Stadlerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kennedy-stadler/last_img read more
