Joint efforts from police in China and Cambodia to combat illegal online gambling in both countries have led to the arrest of almost 1,000 people so far this year.Chinese President Xi Jinping and Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen agreed the cooperation in January of this year and, according to the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, the arrangement is proving effective.As of August 30, almost 1,000 Chinese people have been arrested in Cambodia in connection with the crackdown, including 335 individuals directly involved with illegal online gambling.Prime Minister Hun Sen also last month signed a government order to introduce an outright ban on online gaming in the country and, according to the Chinese Ministry of Public Security, this led to various operators withdrawing from Cambodia.Since the order came into effect on August 31, Chinese and Cambodian police have upped their efforts to identify and shut down illegal gambling businesses.During the weeks that the order has been effective, these police efforts helped to uncover a number of telecommunications fraud and online gambling dens in Sihanoukville, Chaibu and Phnom Penh. Police arrested 176 criminal suspects in the process of these raids.The Cambodian government hopes to shut down its iGaming industry by the end of the year, with no more licences to be awarded, while current permits will not be renewed when they expire at the end of 2019.Earlier this month, Cambodian Police Chief Nesavan also visited China to sign off on a new Memorandum of Understanding to establish a coordination office for law enforcement cooperation between the two countries.The MoU will see the Chinese Ministry of Public Security send police experts and technicians to Cambodia to support the Cambodian police with their investigations into illegal gambling activities.China has been pushing for more Southeast Asian nations to ban online gambling amid claims that offshore operators are harming its citizens.Such calls have prompted the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to put a halt to the issuing of igaming licences at least until the end of 2019.Philippine Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III has also ordered the country’s Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to shut down the operations of Philippines Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) that fail or refuse to pay income tax. 23rd September 2019 | By contenteditor Regions: Asia China Cambodia 1,000 arrested in Chinese and Cambodian gambling crackdown Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Email Addresslast_img read more

Hope for fans to attend Lions tour as SA Rugby president talks about their plans

first_imgWednesday Mar 31, 2021 Hope for fans to attend Lions tour as SA Rugby president talks about their plans There is some hope for fans of the British and Lions series against the Springboks after all, as SA Rugby chief Mark Alexander believes that proposals being presented to the country’s government next week make “a strong case for a safe and sustainable return of supporters”.ADVERTISEMENTThe Lions’ tour of South Africa is scheduled for July and August, highlighted by three Tests against the world champion Springboks, and a move by South Africa’s National Olympic Committee is potentially an encouraging development for Lions supporters hoping to travel.“A comprehensive set of guidelines and protocols to get fans back into South African sports venues is going to our government from our National Olympic Committee next week,” SA Rugby president Alexander said.“We have been heavily involved in the drafting, and we believe it makes a strong case for a safe and sustainable return of supporters. Our government’s response is likely to be shaped by the progress of the (coronavirus) pandemic, but even if we have to play behind closed doors the tour will go ahead.“We have robust plans in place, shaped from the benefit of a year of lessons from bio-secure environments around the world.“There is no reason to doubt the tour taking place.”The Lions are due to play Tests in Johannesburg and Cape Town, plus games in Port Elizabeth, Durban, Pretoria and Nelspruit.LIONS TOUR FIXTURES:SAT 3 July: British & Irish Lions vStormers – Cape TownWED 7 July: British & Irish Lions v South Africa Invitational – Port ElizabethSAT 10 July: British & Irish Lions v Sharks – DurbanWED 14 July: British & Irish Lions v South Africa ‘A’ – NelspruitSAT 17 July: British & Irish Lions v Bulls – PretoriaSAT 24 July (1st Test): Springboks v British & Irish Lions – JohannesburgSAT 31 July (2nd Test): Springboks v British & Irish Lions – Cape TownSAT 7 August (3rd Test): Springboks v British & Irish Lions – JohannesburgADVERTISEMENTRELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 10 WEEKS AGO Rankings outcry after England emerge as top… 11 WEEKS AGO Jack Nowell defends Ellis Genge after difficult… 11 WEEKS AGO Lions tour likely to stay with original hosts… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Through conducting surveys of the status and search for design materials, we can’t help being not impressed with the image of layer of red and green tole roof, overlapping each other as a feature from the height of the houses in the area. In addition, it is interesting to see a unique situation: from the outside look it seems like a typical, long, narrow city house; but going inside it is a cluster of three single blocks revolving around a spacious and airy garden behind.Save this picture!© Huynh Tri DungThe owner is a young couple of 9X generation studying in Hanoi but choosing to live and work in Thai Nguyen. Having an introverted life, and having the love for peace and quiet as a resonance between the context of the status and the personality of people. The STACKING – ROOF HOUSE is a story that respects the inherent peaceful atmosphere, strengthened and reprocessed on a more contemporary, liberal and youthful spirit.Save this picture!© Huynh Tri DungSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Huynh Tri DungThe concrete frames of the two main houses are kept and consolidated by the steel truss of the roof, which is inspired by the surrounded scenery, in order to create a large span. This method not only clears the view to garden on the ground floor but also increases the using area for the first floor. It also creates a “stacking” building which gets along with the surrounding harmoniously.Save this picture!© Huynh Tri DungThe roof structure includes two parts switching from opacity to shield. The roof made from poly material in combination with the glass block of the facade not only makes the building translucent in the scene but also plays a role as a glass house for gardening. The shielding part formed by two layers of colored corrugated steel sheet above a glass ceiling generates convection currents, limits the heat going through spaces as well as keeps the sense of the structure frame.Save this picture!© Huynh Tri DungSave this picture!Structure diagramSave this picture!© Huynh Tri DungThrough the facade, the glass block walls in between the sidewalk and the front yard do not act much as a shield for the house. An area of the old house is used for greenery in order to create a space between the noise outside and the peace inside. Through the narrow corridor – a hyphen between the in front public space and the private one behind – a part of the garden appears so as to attract people’s curiosity. Here, the space compression method is used to enhance the surprise where there is a large and airy space at the end of the corridor: the living space and the greenery. They mingle together and become one recreating the peaceful atmosphere of the Northern Delta just by a garden’s corner and an open space.Save this picture!© Huynh Tri DungFor this work, the role of architecture will only be awareness and transition.

OurClubFundraiser.com is a new online fundraising service that adds elements of gaming to sports to raise funds for local sports clubs.Clubs can use the site to to set up a sports prediction league, and invite their members to guess how well their club and competitors will perform in the league. Players pay a small fee to participate and this is passed to the club.Clubs pay £249 to register to use the site although the site is currently offering a 50% reduced fee. But the site offers a money back guarantee if the club does not break even on using the site.David Williams, founder of the site, got the idea after noting that lots of sports club members took part in online fantasy fooball leagues and enjoyed talking about their progress.“I thought what if I could set up an online league and charge club members a small fee to take part” he said.So far 43 clubs have signed up for the next season which begins in September. “Clubs see this as a minimum-hassle way to raise funds, all they have to do is get their members to enter and put up prizes”, said Williams.www.ourclubfundraiser.com Sports prediction league to raise funds for local sports clubs Howard Lake | 12 August 2012 | Newslast_img read more

If a variance was granted a local jurisdiction could, for example, reopen restaurants or allow drive-through graduations, provided certain criteria were met.Only four cities in California have their own health departments — Pasadena, Long Beach, Berkeley and Vernon.The city has been informed the California Department of Public Health will not consider Pasadena’s variance request and will only consider such requests from counties, despite what the Governor has said.This will leave Pasadena and Long Beach locked into whatever LA County decides.Earlier this week, the county targeted July 4 as a reopening date.
