We are seeing more capacity and more dairy companies chasing volume,” a spokesman said. Along with an increase in the number of small and mid-sized local rivals after the demise of co-operative DFOB last year, aggressive supermarket pricing tactics are also affecting Robert Wiseman’s business.

Sports leagues hit in New Jersey betting bill

first_img Regions: US New Jersey New York Sports leagues hit in New Jersey betting bill 5th June 2018 | By contenteditor Email Address New Jersey has advanced a bill to legalise sports betting but opted not to include integrity measures requested by professional sports leagues in the US Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter New Jersey has advanced a bill to legalise sports betting but opted not to include integrity measures requested by professional sports leagues in the US.The National Basketball Association (NBA), National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB) have rallied for bills to feature clause whereby the leagues receive a share of gambling revenue.The leagues have said that they require additional funding to expand their anti-corruption efforts now that the US sports betting market is expanding.States are now permitted to legalise sports betting after the Supreme Court voted to repeal the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA).Last week, Delaware became the first state to legalise sports betting after the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA and is due to launch a regulated service today (Tuesday).However, New Jersey, which led the effort to overturn PASPA, has opted against including the requested measures in its bill, which is expected to move the full legislature for a likely vote on Thursday, according to Reuters.The bill does not require New Jersey casinos to share real-time game data, nor does it request state regulators or casinos to share information with leagues if they learn that a game is fixed.Bryan Seeley, head of investigations, compliance and security at MLB, said the bill “does not give us the tools we need to protect our national pastime”.However, in response, New Jersey Assemblyman Ralph Caputo, who heads the state Assembly’s gaming committee, said: “The tool you’re looking for is money; that’s not going to happen.“You guys are in it to make money. This is hypocrisy to the fullest extent.”Meanwhile, New York Assemblyman Gary Pretlow has submitted a bill for the potential legalisation of sports betting in the state, pledging to pay a ‘royalty’ to sports leagues. The latest version of the bill features a clause to pay professional sports leagues a share of betting revenue, but refers to this as a ‘royalty’ instead of an ‘integrity fee’ as suggested by sports leagues. Topics: Finance Legal & compliance Sports betting According to an advance copy of the legislation obtained by PlayUSA.com, the bill states leagues would need to submit a claim for this royalty by April 13 each year. The leagues must also meet with the state’s gambling commission within 30 days of submitting the claim to provide “evidence of policies, procedures and training programs it has implemented to protect the integrity of its sports events”. This process differs to an earlier draft bill set out by Senator John Bonacic, who had suggested leagues be given royalties without the need for further activity. Pretlow’s bill also drops a requirement for an annual report on usage of the fees that is subject to audit by the commission, but does include sports governing bodies registered to obtain the fee must have their headquarters in the US. New York is hoping to pass sports betting legislation before a scheduled adjournment of the legislature on June 20.Related articles: Delaware legalises sports betting US sports betting ban overturned Financelast_img read more

Entering my office one morning, a young, lively client in hip-hop fashion proceeded to talk about the Roll House of MOONBALSSO in Miryang. His point was that the building seemed very unique as well as practical. Nevertheless, explaining that he has a favourite form, he showed me a residence with a pool designed by a German architect. I was concerned that he was strongly prejudiced in favor of a specific style that had captivated his heart. After viewing several design presentations, we finally found that the client had very limited tastes biased towards his favourite design. As everything has its end, we finally achieved internal integrity and balance in the design, after spending a lot of time and effort with the client, and eventually coming to an agreement.Save this picture!© FacestudioSave this picture!Save this picture!© FacestudioLocated between Miryang and Ulsan, the gently sloping sunny site commands a magnificent view of rounded mountains at its front, and adjacent fruit trees decorate the boundary of narrow ramp on the left side.

As the privacy of each unit was a priority, the Miryang Pool Villa was made of one duplex unit and three one-story units. Save this picture!© FacestudioSave this picture!© FacestudioThe height and shape of the boundary walls combined with the building have been designed to play the role of confining the outdoor space and framing the superb view.

A Single Bench of Justice Sanjay Dhar passed the order on a petition challenging retrospective application of the said revised rates. Noting that the plea raises an important questions of law, the Judge stayed the circular dated December 13, 2020 and directed the Inspector General of Registration, J&K, to not insist on the Petitioner to pau stamp duty on revised rates. Background The Inspector General of Registration, J&K, Jammu has issued a Circular on December 30, 2020, whereby all Registrars and Sub-Registrars were asked to charge stamp duty as per new rates w.e.f. January 1, 2021. They were instructed to charge revised rates, irrespective of the date of filing of the documents. The Petitioner in this case executed a sale deed on December 22, 2020 and the same was uploaded for its presentation for registration before the Sub-Registrar on December 28, 2020. The appointed date of the registration was given as January 4, 2021. Thus, by the time of actual registration, the revised rates had come into effect in terms of the impugned Circular. Consequently, when the Petitioner’s document came up for registration before the Sub-Registrar concerned, she was asked to affix stamp duty in terms of the revised market rates, though she had affixed the stamp duty in terms of the market rates applicable as on the date of execution of the document. Arguments The Petitioner argued that it is the ‘date of execution’ of a document which determines the rate at which stamp duty has to be affixed on a document and not the date on which the document is actually registered by the Sub-Registrar. The Petitioner’s counsel Advocate Nisar Ahmad Bhat referred to Section 47 of Registration Act, according to which, a document, irrespective of date of its registration, takes effect from the date of its execution. He further argued that the Inspector General of Registration has no jurisdiction to issue a circular in respect of charging of stamp duties. Findings The Bench issued notice on the petition while making an observation that the plea raises an important question of law. It also granted interim relief to the Petitioner inasmuch as the concerned Registrar was directed to examine the Petitioner’s application and register it without insisting payment of stamp duty on revised rates. It observed, “The impugned circular issued by the Inspector General of Registration, J&K, Jammu is stayed and respondent No. 6 is directed to consider the document in question presented by the petitioner for its Registration and in case the same fulfills all other requirements of law and rules, the document be admitted to Registration without insisting in payment of stamp duty on revised rates.” The direction is however made subject to the outcome of the instant proceedings. The Bench said that its order will operate subject to filing of an undertaking by the petitioner that in case she fails in this petition, she shall make good the deficiency of stamp duty. The matter is now listed for hearing on April 12, 2021. Case Title: Shabnam Nazir v. Government of J&K & Ors.

New Year brings unique ‘fireballing’ tradition

first_img Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 11:00 pm Monday, January 6, 2014 The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Lynn Bundy has been fireballing since she was being told “don’t play with fire.”Now, she takes her children out to the field to “play with fire.”Her daughter, Morgan, is a veteran fireballer but Morgan’s little brother, Wes, was having no part of it.Morgan has been throwing fireballs for a couple of years but it took a little peer pressure for Wes to pick up a flaming ball. By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Just when the fireball party will be held depends on several things, said Barbara Henderson Curry.“Ball games and the weather actually determine when, so it’s not often that we have the celebration on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day,” Curry said.“This year, we had the fireball throwing on Saturday night so we were already four days into the New Year but we had a great turnout and a lot of fun.” Disney World and Six Flags put on fabulous fireworks displays and thousands of people “oooh” and “aaah” as the fireworks exploded in bursts of brilliant colors.But nothing can compare to the flares that light up the Enon, Alabama night sky in celebration of the New Year.For nearly 25 years the Willie Henderson family of the Enon community has been “throwing” a fireball party in an open field to celebrate the New Year.

He was proud of himself,” his mother said.Bundy said that she has no qualms about fireballing.“It’s tradition,” she said. “Children understand that fireballing is something that you do to celebrate the New Year and that it’s a game that you play at a certain time and always with adults around.“It’s good for children to be a part of a tradition. You probably won’t find many fireball throwings and, for us to have a tradition of fireballing here in Pike County is special and we’re proud to be a part of it.”Almost as soon as the last fireball was out Saturday night, Barbara Curry was back winding fireballs for the 2015 New Year’s celebration.She winds while she watches television or on road trips and most often to the beat of bluegrass being played at local festivals.“I start with an old cotton sock and I wad it up and start winding cotton crocheting yarn around the sock real tight,” she said. “I wind until the ball is a good throwing size.Curry sews the fireballs so they won’t come apart and then soaks them in kerosene for several months.On the night the fireballs are thrown, the Henderson family puts out a “spread” and says, “Y’all come.” Hot dogs, a pot of hot chili and all the fixings and a sweet treat or two entice fireball throwers to sit down and eat, but not for long. They would rather throw than eat.But, that’s not true of the spectators who would rather eat and keep their feet to the fire.During the festivities, there’s always a huge bonfire going and several smaller ones dot the field.“You won’t see anything like this many places,” said Erin Ricks. “This is our first time and we’ve had so much fun. Fireballing is a great tradition and we’re proud to be a part of it. We appreciate those who keep the tradition going.”Fireballing is a tradition that dates back to the 1920s in America but probably originated in Europe as early as the 16th century.
