Rhode Island has edged closer to regulated mobile sports betting after Senate President Dominick Ruggerio’s bill was advanced to the state’s Senate for a full vote next week.The Senate is scheduled to vote on bill S37 on February 12 after the state’s Special Legislation & Veterans Affairs Committee voted unanimously in favour of the bill.Introduced last month, the bill sets out measures to allow the Twin River casinos in Lincoln and Tiverton to offer mobile sports wagering services to consumers.The casinos would be permitted to work with developers to create a mobile app that allows punters in Rhode Island to place a wager from anywhere inside the state’s boundaries. Operators would be required to use geolocation technology to ensure consumers outside Rhode Island could not access the app.In order to begin betting via mobile, consumers would need to set up an account in person at the Twin Casino in Lincoln or Tiverton. Wagers would then be taken via a server-based gaming system at each casino.Both Twin River sites are currently working with William Hill and IGT to offer sports betting in the state, via a deal agreed between the three parties in August of last year.Rhode Island would be permitted to take 51% in tax from all revenue generated from mobile sports betting, keeping in line with laws in the state for land-based wagering.The state moved to legalise in-person sports betting in June last year but did not launch the regulated market until November. Despite mobile betting being seemingly close, there are currently no plans to legalise online sports wagering.During the first full month of regulation in December, punters spent more than $13m (£10.1m/€11.5m) on sports betting. Revenue for the month amounted to $957,900 between the two Twin River casinos.The Lincoln site, which launched sports betting on November 26, took $11.1m in sports wagers, paying out $10.3m in winnings to leave revenue of $843,700. The Tiverton casino went live on December 3 and took $2m in bets, paying out $1.9m in winnings, leaving it with revenue of $123,300 for the month.

Consequently we have delivered significant returns both for our shareholders and for the Greek State during the same period.”He added that despite the “significant impact” of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic on the business, he was confident that the foundations were in place to ”responsibly deliver further value in the future for all stakeholders”.During his tenure, Cope was responsible for implementing the operator’s 2020 Vision transformation programme, which has seen a significant expansion of OPAP’s product portfolio. This includes the roll-out of 25,000 video lottery terminals (VLTs) in Greece, as well as the launch of self service betting terminals and its online offering expanded.Cope also oversaw a €100m modernisation of the operator’s technology and systems, as well as the introduction of comprehensive compliance and responsible gaming policies, and formed a new, high-performing management team.

Karas, meanwhile, has worked for OPAP since 2014, leading the transformation of its retail network during his time with the business.“The board is confident that Mr Ziegler and Mr Karas will successfully lead the company in the current turbulent environment and their experience will be essential to minimise effects of the current Covid-19 crisis,” OPAP said. “The OPAP board and all the members of the senior management of the company will fully support both of them in this process.”Earlier today, OPAP reported a 4.7% year-on-year rise in gross gaming revenue for 2019, to €1.62bn, with net profit up 39.1% at €202.1m. However, the business looks set to suffer from the Covid-19 pandemic, which is expected to cut GGR by up to €140m per month, with all retail outlets in its core Greek and Cypriot markets currently shuttered.

Architecture firm Hesselbrand have completed a family house in east London designed for working and entertaining from home. The project is the first to be completed in a series of houses designed by Hesselbrand that re-imagines the traditional terraced house for contemporary life. Both floors of the house have been strategically rearranged by creating new openings, separations, and a large side extension on the ground floor. This makes the rooms of the house connect directly instead of through a corridor to allow for unlimited ways to move around the house. A new passage is opened from the bright front living room, leading you through a dark ochre coloured library into the new kitchen.Save this picture!Courtesy of HesselbrandIn the kitchen, white-painted concrete blocks and steel columns form a sharp contrast to the existing house, and exposed concrete foundations on the floor draw a line of where the old wall used to be. At the back of the room, a large steel-framed window completes the passage by framing a view of the new garden room underneath a black painted timber pergola. Each space in the house is given its own spatial quality; bright, dark, wide, narrow, and so on.Save this picture!Courtesy of HesselbrandSave this picture!Courtesy of HesselbrandWhen the character of a room is defined by its quality or atmosphere rather than its function, it becomes more flexible and open to interpretation. For example, one of the bathrooms has the character of a normal room with the only exception that there is a bathtub, whereas the other bathroom is tiled all over in a perfect grid as if one continuous waterproof surface has been wrapped around the whole room.Save this picture!Courtesy of HesselbrandThe economic approach to the redesign of the plan, with its repurposing of existing spaces, can also be found in the use of materials. In keeping and re-using as much of the existing building as possible, the design is aimed at finding a new use for old materials. Bricks left from the demolition are re-integrated into new parts of the building and leftover block-work is turned into a new kitchen. The structural steel is left exposed and painted to match the existing moldings, forming a visual link between the old and new. This approach of re-purposing both plan layout and materials ultimately gives each room more purpose and character and the house becomes significantly richer in experiences.Save this picture!Courtesy of HesselbrandProject gallerySee allShow lessBeijing CR Land Galleria Shopping Center – Instreet Renovation / KokaistudiosSelected ProjectsHouse in La Moraleja / Mariano Molina IniestaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Architects: Hesselbrand Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/950354/forest-glade-house-hesselbrand Clipboard Houses “COPY” CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom Manufacturers: Flos, Orluna, Lehni Lead Architects: Forest Glade House / HesselbrandSave this projectSaveForest Glade House / HesselbrandSave this picture!Courtesy of Hesselbrand+ 15Curated by Paula Pintos Share Forest Glade House / Hesselbrand Projects ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeHesselbrandOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEnglandLondonOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on October 28, 2020Cite: “Forest Glade House / Hesselbrand” 28 Oct 2020.

Accordingly, the Court directed for the appeal to be listed before another Bench. On 29th September last year, a Bench of Justice B V Nagarathna and Justice Ravi V Hosmani of the High Court pronounced the order and said the “The amendment is ultra vires to the act. The State government has no State and has no direct say in the functioning of the law school. It is an autonomous institute and not aided by the state government.” The Bench said the Executive Council of the University has powers to introduce reservation and “If we allow this thing (state reservation) to be done virtually there will be two centers of control, one with executive council and other by state which will be an unhealthy trend.” It bserved that, “by the impugned amendment what is sought to be created is a state quota which is not permissible.” The Bench also stated “NLSIU is on par with AIIMS, IIT and IIM, where there is no reservation quota.” It has in the order said “This law school is not on par with other law schools. Other schools are giving reservations thus it is not necessary that Karnataka must also do it.” Moreover, comparing the reservation in NLSIU with other law schools, the bench has said “Other law schools came up with reservations as students were not getting in Karnataka school under the 80 seats quota.” The Bench rejected the argument of the State Government that the object of reservation was to retain talent in Karnataka. It said “Karnataka Students aspiration cannot be said to be in Karnataka alone when opportunities are available overseas and India.” It was further suggested that “Executive Council of NLSIU consider Reservation for WOMEN and ECONOMICALLY WEAKER SECTIONS OF THE SOCIETY at the law school.” The Court has concluded by saying “No scientific study is conducted, the reservation impact is contrary to what is the purpose of the law school. The impugned reservation is struck down as it does not meet the twin test of Article 14. In March, the Karnataka State Assembly passed the National Law School Of India (Amendment) Act, 2020, which received the Karnataka Governor’s assent on April 27. As per this amendment, NLSIU should reserve horizontally twenty-five percent of seats for ‘students of Karnataka’. The amendment inserted the following proviso in Section 4 of the National Law School of India Act :- “Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act and the regulations made thereunder, the school shall reserve horizontally twenty-five percent of seats for students of Karnataka.” As per the explanation of this Section, “student of Karnataka” means a student who has studied in any one of the recognized educational institutions in the State for a period of not less than ten years preceding to the qualifying examination.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
