IBIA calls for online live betting in Australia

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Casino & games Sports betting Social gaming IBIA calls for online live betting in Australia Regions: Oceania Australia The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has called for online in-play betting in Australia, claiming the lack of legal live wagering contributes to “stubbornly high” levels of offshore activity. Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) has called for online in-play betting in Australia, claiming the lack of legal live wagering contributes to “stubbornly high” levels of offshore activity.Its call came as part of the IBIA’s response to a consultation on the Australian Sports Wagering Scheme (ASWS), a planned national framework to uphold sporting integrity in the market.The response follows the publication of a discussion paper on sports integrity in Australia including a series of questions from the Sports Integrity Taskforce, under the Department of Health’s control. This discussion paper itself followed the Wood Review, a report on integrity in Australian sport published in 2018.The suggestions in the discussion paper included creating a new regulatory body,  Sport Integrity Australia (SIA), that would oversee the licensing of sports wagering providers as well as integrity issues across all sports on a federal level.Under another suggestion, Sport Integrity Australia would create a real-time national platform that would allow the SIA to access to wagering providers’ source data. In the government’s response to the Wood Review, it said integrity bodies should be able to “nationally suspend wagering markets where significant risk of match-fixing is identified.”However, the Sports Integrity Taskforce said it has “yet to be decided” if this will be a feature of the national platform.Among the Wood Review’s 52 recommendations was that online in-play wagering be permitted in Australia. Currently, live bets may only be placed at retail venues or via telephone.The IBIA said it was very disappointed that two years later, online in-play betting is still not available. This, it said, may encourage match-fixing by promoting unregulated operators who are less likely to report suspicious activity.“It is particularly disappointing that the Government has not supported the Wood Review’s recommendation on in-play betting to properly address the integrity challenges presented by offshore betting, notably unregulated or poorly regulated Asian betting operators,” the IBIA said. “The absence of an effective and coherent policy on in-play betting is detrimental to the regulated market.”In addition, the IBIA said that the decision to bring a range of sports integrity functions all under the control of a single body was not necessary given the current framework was “already deemed to be effective” and said the change could limit the ability of states and territories to set their own integrity provisions.The IBIA also said that a clear policy for racing was notably absent in the ASWS, which created a major problem given the importance of racing to the Australian betting industry.“Racing makes up a large part of the betting industry and, if the Government is to assess and promote a national betting and integrity policy framework, that sport must surely form a central part of any related considerations and recommendations,” it said.FInally, the IBIA said that product fees operators must pay to Australian racing and sporting bodies for the rights to run books on their products also make it more difficult for regulated sportsbooks to keep pace with unlicensed competition. These fees are typically set at around 2.5% of turnover, or between 20% and 30% of gross gaming revenue (GGR), hindering efforts to compete against offshore competitors.The consultation ran until 17 July. The Sports Integrity Taskforce will now produce a final regulatory impact statement in late 2020, and the changes included in the ASWS are set to come into force from July 2021.

Chicano Mexicano Prison Project holds annual conference

first_imgConference facilitator Pablo Aceves at microphone, June 14.WW photo: Gloria VerdieuSan Diego — On June 14, the 16th Annual Conference on Raza Prisoners and Colonialism was hosted by the Chicano Mexicano Prison Project.The conference began with solidarity statements from the Brown Berets, Uhuru and the San Diego Committee Against Police Brutality, followed by keynote speaker Dolores Canales of the California Families Against Solitary Confinement.  Canales spoke passionately about what solitary confinement does physically and psychologically to prisoners. She showed slides of individual prisoners and pointed out how their skin looks after years with no sunlight. She also spoke about the prison hunger strike where over 30,000 prisoners refused food.There were two panels. The first addressed the issue “How prisons have destroyed families.” Speakers on this panel included Aloni Bonilla, a victim of police brutality from Orange County who is fighting back. Bonilla had posted a video on Facebook to raise awareness about police using excessive force.  A Los Angeles judge did not allow this video to be shown in court.Carolyn Torres of Chicanos Unidos of Orange County spoke on gang injunctions and Pedro Ríos from the American Friends Service Committee spoke on immigration and detention.The second panel focused on conditions in prisons and creating Raza resistance. Speakers included Martha Esquivel and Kwame Agomou, of  the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, who spoke of the conditions in the San Diego Central Jail based on his own experience. Agomou spent 21 days in jail, and he believes that without the organized phone calls, support and actions from organizations on the outside he would not have received the medical attention that he needed. Helena Rodríguez, of the Chicano Mexicano Prison Project, spoke on the topic of forced sterilization and the attacks on women in prison. She began her presentation with disturbing statistics on the growing number of women inmates.Support for Cuban 5, U.S. political prisoners This year’s conference was organized under the theme “Prisons: Destruction of Families and Communities.” There were many youth in attendance who participated in the discussion after each panel. One of the youth in attendance was the son of Sagon Penn. On March 31, 1985, 23-year-old Penn was racially profiled by San Diego police. He fought back but was acquitted of any wrongdoing after two trials. In retribution, Penn was hounded and harassed by police right up to the day he was found dead in his apartment on June 2, 2002. The San Diego chapter of Copwatch was named in honor of Sagon Penn.The conference ended with two resolutions. One of the resolutions was to build support for the Cuban 5 political prisoners, three of whom are still incarcerated in U.S. prisons. Many “Give me Five” cards, demanding that the U.S. government release the remaining three imprisoned heroes, were distributed. Footage from the Washington, D.C., demonstrations from “5 Days for the Cuban 5” in early June was shown. Conference facilitators gave an update on the remaining three of the Cuban 5 and the possibility of a prisoner exchange — releasing U.S. spy Alan Gross in exchange for the remaining three Cuban heroes. The other resolution was to continue to hold forums and rallies to build awareness about the prison-industrial complex and the criminal injustice system.Organizations that participated and endorsed this conference included the Association of Raza Educators, Students Against Mass Incarceration, Save Our Barrios Coalition, Workers World Party, the San Diego Immigrant Youth Collective and those organizations mentioned above.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Colliercenter_img Had TCU prevailed against Kansas State on Saturday, they would’ve matched up against Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl in Houston but instead, TCU gets a different SEC opponent.However, this isn’t the first time TCU and Georgia have met.The two schools played against each other in the 1942 Orange Bowl, Georgia winning that game 40-26.Georgia has won three of its last four bowl games, while TCU has won four of its past five. In TCU’s last bowl game against an SEC team, the Frogs defeated Ole Miss 42-3 in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31, 2014.The Liberty Bowl marks the Horned Frogs’ 14th trip to a bowl game in 16 seasons under Patterson. TCU also went to a bowl all three years when Patterson was the defensive coordinator (1998-2000).“Bowls are a great reward for our players, and we’re looking forward to utilizing the game as a springboard for our off-season program,” Patterson said. “It’s cool to play against them because we don’t cross over very much being in the Big 12 and them being in the SEC.”Under Patterson, the Horned Frogs are 2-2 versus SEC opponents. In addition to the victory over Ole Miss, TCU defeated Vanderbilt 30-14 in 2003. TCU’s losses come from a 37-27 decision to No. 12 LSU in the 2013 season opener and the 41-38 double-overtime loss to Arkansas earlier this season.TCU gained bowl eligibility this season with a 31-9 win against the Texas Longhorns on Nov. 25 in Austin.“It’s a very exciting opportunity for our football program to face Georgia in a tradition-rich game like the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, where Coach Patterson earned his first bowl win,” TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said.Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. on Dec. 30 at the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis.

WNV, Chikungunya and Dengue are not contagious from person to person and are spread through mosquito bites.“We don’t have anything necessarily unusual going on in Pasadena,” he told Pasadena Now. “I think what we’re seeing is across the region and I’m counting really sort of the whole state of California. We’re seeing increased numbers of West Nile in these indicator flocks.”Johnson said there have been a total of 22 cases of human WNV across California lately, including four in Los Angeles county.Since its first detection in California in 2003, WNV has infected more than 5,588 people and caused 229 deaths statewide, according to the California Department of Public Health. The virus is now endemic in California and presents a public health risk every year.Officials say it is critical that residents remove all standing water on their property to prevent mosquito production.In Pasadena, Johnson says Public Health staff continue to monitor reports of mosquito breeding and make sure suspect areas are treated.“When we find that there might be issues where there’s standing water, and specifically if we see that there’s actual mosquito breeding on them, we’ll treat that with a larvicide, which is basically an oil that suffocates the mosquito larvae while they’re on standing water,” Johnson said. “Also, we can go in everybody’s backyard so the message that we want to get out is people need to look at their properties and make sure there’s no standing water.”Mosquitoes tend to lay their eggs in stagnant water such as neglected pools, buckets, miscellaneous containers, puddles, and ponds. Eggs can hatch and develop into biting adults in four to seven days.Pasadena Public Health Officer Dr. Ying-Ying Goh offers the following tips to avoid WNV:Around the home:• Eliminate all outdoor sources of standing water• Use a scrub brush and hot soapy water to clean unused, outdoor containers you intend to keep, such as tires, buckets and flower pots, that have had standing water in them; then turn over those unused containers to prevent new standing water from accumulating inside• Keep swimming pools clean and water circulating; keep filter equipment in good repair• Check for larvae in ornamental water sources and treat as necessary with “mosquito dunks” available from hardware stores• Change bird bath water every five days• Keep ornamental and fish ponds stocked with mosquito fish; use a pump to keep water moving• Screen and cover rain barrelsAt home and when traveling:Wear repellants containing DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus• Wear repellants containing DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus• If possible, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors, as conditions permit• Regularly check yourself for bugs and bites if outdoors for long periods• Make sure your hotel or lodging has air conditioning and window screens• Check window screens for holes or tearsFor more on mosquito-borne diseases, visit updates from the City of Pasadena, visit and follow the city on Twitter @PasadenaGov (, on Instagram @PasadenaGov ( and on Facebook at The city’s YouTube channel is at can call the Citizen Service Center, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at (626) 744-7311.The San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District can be reached at (626) 814-9466 or online at birds should be reported to the WNV hotline at (877) WNV-BIRD or (877) 968-2473, or online at Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
