Geoff Freeman is to step down from his role as president and chief executive of the American Gaming Association (AGA). Freeman has led the organisation since 2013 and has been one of the key figures in the successful battle to expand the sports betting market in the US. The Supreme Court last month voted to overturn the federal 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). PASPA had blocked more states from legalising full-service sports betting, but the ruling will allow states to individually regulate such activities. Last week, Delaware passed legislation to legalise sports wagering and yesterday (Tuesday) began accepting full sports wagers. Freeman will depart the AGA on August 1 in order to become president and chief executive of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA). Tim Wilmott, chief executive of Penn National Gaming and chairman of the AGA board, said: “The AGA accomplished many important successes during Geoff’s tenure, most notably the recent Supreme Court ruling declaring PASPA as unconstitutional, a decision that paves the way for legalised sports betting in the US. “It is a testament to our industry, as well as to Geoff himself, that GMA would look to gaming as a model for managing through dynamic change and complexity to achieve success in both policy and perceptions. “Geoff has built a strong board and a strong team; he leaves us well positioned for future success.”Related articles: US sports betting ban overturned American Gaming Association adds new board members Casino & games Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Strategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 6th June 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AGA chief executive to depart Geoff Freeman is to step down from his role as president and chief executive of the American Gaming Association (AGA) Tags: Online Gambling

Located on the top floor of a multi-family housing building in Barcelona’s Raval neighbourhood, the penthouse has access from the centre to a floor strangled by a lightwell that divides the house into two separate spaces: the first one, a street-facing room, and the second one, a four-times larger space divided by a series of parallel walls, derived from a structural rehabilitation.Save this picture!AxonometricThe arcaded back façade serves as an endowment that provides a logical structure to the project. The geometrical repetition of the consecutive and dividing load-bearing walls results in a unique space that conceptually preserves its original limits. Around the structure, functionality exceeds the physical limits, either surrounding it or just bumping into it. The sofa, the bathtub, the bedroom and the shower, as well as the dressing area, find their own place on a fluffy green fitted carpet.

Photo courtesy GoFrogsTCU women’s tennis couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead as Texas A&M marched back for a 4-3 victory, but a Wednesday matchup at Rice University gives the Frogs a chance to redeem themselves. The Texas A&M loss was the Frogs’ first match on the road. The Aggies were able to use their home court advantage to overwhelm the Frogs and force the loss. First-year Kate Paulus believes that the key to the team finding road success is in their energy. “We really need to be positive and loud,” Paulus said. “We need to bring the heat.” The Frogs (4-1) started out hot in College Station by earning the doubles point over the Aggies (7-0) with a 6-4 win from Ellie Douglas and Aleksa Cveticanin and a Stevie Kennedy and Chloe Hule win on court three. The Kennedy and Hule tandem secured the doubles point for TCU with a resilient 7-6, 7-4 win in the tiebreaker. Douglas flew into the singles round and put away the first singles point with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Katya Townsend, making her undefeated in the season in singles. Fellow first-year Mercedes Aristegui continued her perfect record in singles with a 6-2, 6-3 victory on court four. Aristegui’s win would be the last point on the board for the Frogs. The Aggies had straight-set victories over Kennedy and Hule on the bottom two courts, while both Paulus and Cveticanin dropped their third set. Paulus suffered her first loss in singles this season, dropping her first set 3-6 and her third set 1-6 against Tatiana Makarova. Cveticanin battled Texas A&M’s No. 110 ranked Jayci Goldsmith in a 6-2, 1-6, 3-6 loss. The team will head to Houston Wednesday to face off against Rice University (2-1). The Owls’ Linda Huang is featured on two ranked doubles teams, sitting at No. 55 with Michaela Haet and at No. 59 with Priya Niezgoda.

So Ouathi’s case seems worrying, especially in view of the current climate of insecurity and impunity in Gaza.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We would like to express our full support for Ouathi’s family at this difficult time, and we reiterate our appeal to the Palestinian authorities to take all possible initiatives to ensure that he is released as soon as possible.”Ouathi was returning to his hotel on the evening of 14 August with three other members of a France 3 TV crew – Gwenaëlle Lenoir, Michel Anglade and Franck Pairaud – when they were intercepted by three gunmen who did not have their faces covered. The other crew members managed to escape but Ouathi was taken away at gunpoint.

There would seem to be an overwhelming bias towards facilitating flights from the US and other NATO countries. How can our government claim we are in any way neutral when this is happening?”“The information reveals flights going to the likes of Saudi Arabia, which is dropping cluster bombs on Yemen. When we see the scale of the refugee crisis created by the use of weapons in Syria we begin to get a glimpse of how arms shipments can impact on a region. It’s not something we should be part of,” continued Mr Lannon.The companies identified as carrying weapons and other war related material for the US include Atlas Air, Omni Air International, Southern Air, National Airlines, Delta Air, Kalitta Air and North American Airlines.The information also reveals US troop movements via Shannon to airports in Eastern Europe as well as to Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.Mr Lannon added: “The records received by Shannonwatch reveal a lack of transparency, no proper oversight and little regard for the consequences of war.” Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live

Donegal.The High Court has heard that the 27 year old was arrested in September two years ago – for allegedly chasing two girls with a stick.It’s alleged that the then 25 year old man was wrongfully and unlawfully arrested in Co Donegal and forcibly detained with handcuffs behind his back.His family say this caused him trauma and upset and they claim no effort was made by officers to contact his parents or inquire of neighbours as to who he was.They say he’s limited physical boundaries because of his autism and they dispute the location where gardai say they arrested him, as well as the allegation that he was chasing two girls with a stick.The court heard his mother frantically searched for him and was shocked to find him detained at a garda station under the Mental Health Act where gardai refused to immediately release him.It’s claimed the Garda Ombudsman Commission has received no response to a complaint lodged by his mother 18 months ago.Now the man’s aunt is suing for damages including aggravated, punitive and exemplary damages for false imprisonment, assault and breach of his right to liberty.

IntranetOn 18 Jul 2000 in Personnel Today • House of Fraser has been trialling e-learning solutions as a means of boosting management skills and providing staff with self-development opportunities. A total of 30 modules supplied by Xebec McGraw-Hill are being made available in two separate pilots across the HoF intranet.New managers at six stores are working with on-line modules that cover motivation, feedback, delegation, time management and leadership. Topics being offered to first-level buying managers at head office include managing people, communication and presentation skills, and coaching. If successful, the full roll-out will follow later this year for up to 1,000 users across all 51 stores.The company is investing £8,000 in 30,000 individual chunks of training, each lasting around half an hour. The full roll-out is expected to cost around £50,000, which management development manager Colin Robinson views as highly cost-effective.“Staff don’t have to travel to regional training centres and can do the work in shorter times, which increases productivity,” he says. “The value of this training is that we can reach more people. We would like to reduce staff turnover, and the feedback from leavers is that they want more opportunities for development.”Another advantage of on-line learning is to provide consistency, which is difficult to achieve using different groups of trainers around the country. Also, course material can be tailored to the company’s existing training and competencies.A key element in the company’s choice was the existence of an intranet. A hot-key on store tills already enables staff to access up-to-date product information. It provides a platform which users are familiar with and eliminates the need to install costly infrastructure.Robinson anticipates that consolidation workshops will be needed to reinforce the on-line work and is keenly awaiting users’ feedback. “We do have a number of training and development advisers who have regional responsibility, so could use that framework as the basis of a support mechanism,” he says.BOX• Ensure early buy-in from senior management, line managers and IT, as well as the employees who will use it.• If you opt for external consultancy choose a firm with a track record in other forms of training besides the Internet.• Personalise the training to the individual as a means of encouraging retention.• Choose a course with plenty of interactive content.• Make the most of the Internet’s support mechanisms such as e-mail and chat rooms.
