Tags: Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Spelinspektionen warns ATG after bonusing glitch The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has warned ATG over technical problems that have made it possible to receive bonuses more than once.On 14 February, ATG sent a letter to Spelinspektionen, informing the regulator that players had been given a bonus even though they had already received one in the past. Under the Swedish Gambling Act of 2018, which set the framework for Sweden’s regulated market, licensees may only offer a bonus to players only for the first time they play the licensee’s games.According to ATG, the incident happened because of a migration of the operator’s servers, with players’ bonus history not updating with the migration.In total, 15 customers were able to use second bonuses, worth a combined SEK850 (£69.50/€78.35/$87.48) because of the glitch, which lasted for five and a half hours on 14 January.“ATG has stated that the company takes a very serious view of what has happened, and even though the incident is linked to the relocation of servers, the company has reviewed the procedures for new customer offers so that something similar should not happen again,” Spelinspektionen said.Spelinspektionen director-general Camilla Rosenberg opted not to take any action over the error, noting that it only lasted briefly, was due to a technical error and that it was self-reported.“The violation has only affected a few people and has been going on for a short time,” she said. “In addition, ATG has on its own initiative reported the violation to Spelinspektionen and made a correction.“In its overall assessment, Spelinspektionen therefore considers that the violation in this case is less serious and that a warning may be regarded as sufficient intervention.”Patrick Brissman, ATG’s chief corporate communication officer, said the operator regrets the error and always makes an effort to stay compliant.“Following the regulations is the foundation of our entire business,” Brissman said. “Therefore, it is a matter of course for us to report when we discover that an error has been committed. We regret and continue to work focused on avoiding any errors that may occur.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Email Address 13th March 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden

Read a statement from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on the admissions ceiling here. [Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Migration Ministries and the eight other agencies that resettle refugees in the United States on behalf of the federal government have received one-year extensions to continue that work – with one major catch: The Trump administration has not yet said whether it will allow any refugees into the country when the new fiscal year starts on Oct. 1.The 40-year-old federal resettlement program already had been diminished greatly by sharp limits imposed under President Donald Trump. For the past year, his administration allowed no more than 18,000 refugees into the country, and with the fiscal year now drawing to a close, only about 10,900 refugees actually were admitted, the fewest on record.The administration typically sets the annual cap on resettlements by the end of September. As of Sept. 29, no announcement had been made for the 2021 fiscal year, and without that decision, resettlement efforts soon could be on hold indefinitely.The Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church, said in an interview with Episcopal News Service that Episcopal Migration Ministries and its affiliates would welcome a swift decision on refugee levels. “We are fully prepared to continue that 40-year work of resettlement in partnership with the government, alongside the other eight agencies,” he said.Syrian refugee Baraa Haj Khalaf, left, kisses her father, Khaled, as her mother, Fattoum, cries after arriving at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, in February 2017. Photo: ReutersAnd as uncertainty looms this week over the resettlement program, the Trump administration is facing increased pressure to set refugee levels for the year. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, one of the nine resettlement agencies, stressed the need for the administration to act during a Sept. 29 call with reporters.“The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops believes it is our duty to protect the lives and dignity of all people, regardless of where they were born,” Ashley Feasley, the Roman Catholic organization’s director of policy for its Office of Migration Policy and Public Affairs, said on the call, which was organized by the National Immigration Forum.Another resettlement agency, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, issued a Sept. 24 letter signed by more than 200 Lutheran clergy members supporting continuation of resettlement efforts.“As people of faith, we believe that we must honor the dignity of every human, regardless of national origin,” the Lutheran letter said. “We have a commitment to follow the teachings of Jesus and to uphold our nation’s tradition of protecting the persecuted.”Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services is pressing for a refugee limit of at least 95,000, echoing statements released over the summer by large ecumenical coalitions that include The Episcopal Church and Episcopal clergy members.For most of the past two decades, that cap remained between 70,000 and 90,000, and President Barack Obama raised it to 110,000 during his final year in office. The Trump administration then steadily slashed the number as part of its ongoing effort to restrict both legal and illegal immigration into the United States, a policy platform that was a central part of the president’s 2016 campaign.The further reduction in refugee admissions this year is partly due to the coronavirus pandemic. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHCR, paused global resettlements as a precaution, prompting the United States to suspend its own program for five months.Global resettlement needs, meanwhile, have only increased in recent years. The refugees who are resettled in the United States typically are fleeing war, persecution and other hardships in their home countries. UNHCR estimates there are nearly 26 million such refugees worldwide, and tens of millions more have been displaced within their home countries.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby preached about the plight of refugees in his sermon Sept. 27 at Washington National Cathedral in the American capital. God calls on Christians, who once lived in exile, to love those in exile today, Welby said.“We cannot hate what we choose or surround our love with barbed wire so that only those with the password can be its recipients,” he said. “We are God’s people. It is God who chooses, not us.”The Episcopal Church first began assisting refugees in the 1930s and 1940s through the Presiding Bishop’s Fund for World Relief, supporting people from Europe fleeing the Nazis. Since the Unites States created the current refugee resettlement program in 1980, EMM has resettled nearly 100,000 refugees, providing a range of services for these families upon their arrival in the United States, including English language and cultural orientation classes, employment services, school enrollment and initial assistance with housing and transportation.Since refugee admissions were slashed under Trump, the number of local affiliates that EMM works with has dwindled from 31 to 13. Those remaining affiliates helped resettle about 1,600 refugees in 2019 – but only 600 this year.Trump administration officials are weighing a range of options for the new fiscal year, including a possible postponement of further refugee resettlement, according to Reuters. “The arc of this administration’s refugee policy is going to continue,” an unnamed official told Reuters.The future of refugee resettlement also could hinge on the outcome of the Nov. 3 presidential election. Trump’s Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, has said he would increase the annual refugee cap to 125,000.EMM, long known for its resettlement work, has expanded its engagement on a broader range of immigration and migration issues in recent years. It created a resource guide for congregations interested in receiving and supporting asylum-seekers, and it is working with The Episcopal Church’s Office of Global Partnerships to develop a new initiative to support border ministries.“There is the resettlement piece of EMM, but the 80-year-old mission has always been church engagement with refugees, migrants and asylum-seekers,” Robertson said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Apopka police officers and residents have a conversation at McDonald’sThere’s nothing like a good cup of coffee to spark a good conversation, and that’s exactly what the Apopka Police Department wanted yesterday.Officers from the APD filled the Main Street McDonald’s Saturday morning. They talked to residents, showed children their police cruisers, and handed out coupons for free coffee. The heavy police presence was for their “Coffee with a Cop” program, which is over a year old now in Apopka. “There are a lot of paradigm shifts going on in law enforcement these days and a lot of animosity between the communities and everything… and I want to make sure we don’t have that in Apopka,” APD Chief Michael McKinley said at the very first Coffee With a Cop event in January of 2016. “I want to make sure we are intertwined with the residents of Apopka and have a good working relationship with them.”In that time a lot of conversations have happened between a mix of APD officers, McKinley, elected officials and residents of Apopka. Many McDonald’s customers are simply there to get breakfast and start their weekend activities, but see the APD officers and engage them with questions on a range of topics. It’s a unique ice-breaker that has become a quarterly tradition at the Apopka Main Street McDonalds.We asked Presto Coffee, who offer a coffee subscription service, about the program and they said, “Coffee is unique in the fact it brings people together, and it’s great to see Apopka police officers bringing the community together like this.”“Coffee with a Cop” provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the department’s work in Apopka’s neighborhoods. The majority of contact law enforcement has with the public is during an emergency, or an emotional situation, which is not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. “Coffee with a Cop“ breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

to go further Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” May 3, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders voiced deep regret today at the death of Abdul Qodus, a cameraman and driver employed by the Kandahar bureau of the privately-owned TV station Aryana, who was killed when a Taliban suicide bombing in Kandahar on 22 July was followed another in the same place a short while later.”We voice our strongest condemnation of the use of suicide bombings by the Taliban against civilians,” the press freedom organisation said. “The tactic of staging a second bombing in the same place, thereby threatening media employees and others, is especially appalling.”Qodus was helping to film the aftermath of a suicide bombing that killed two Canadian soldiers when – 40 minutes after the first bomb – a second suicide bomber blew himself up in the middle of the crowd that had gathered, inflicting fatal injuries on Qodus and four other civilians and injuring many others. The cameraman died of head injuries after being rushed to Kandahar’s Mirwais hospital.After this double bombing, Taliban spokesman Qari Muhammad Yousaf issued a warning to civilians not to approach the scene of a bombing because a second or even a third one might follow in the same place.The Afghan Independent Journalists Association (AIJA) said Qodus joined Aryana eight months ago after working for the national radio and TV broadcaster. He is the second journalist to be killed in a bombing in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime.
