He will now lead the department responsible for gambling and sport, with Tracey Crouch remaining Minister for Sport, a post she has held since 2015.Wright assumes the office three months after Hancock and Crouch announced maximum stakes on FOBTs are to be reduced from £100 to £2 “to reduce the risk of gambling-related harm”. The announcement came after the completion of the Triennial Review that has involved government, the Gambling Commission and interested parties from across the gambling industry. Speaking after Wright’s appointment, Clive Hawkswood, of the RGA, told iGamingBusiness.com: “After the protracted debate around FOBTs and the Triennial review process, I think the wider industry really needs a period of stability, so I’d suggest it could be counter-productive for anyone to rush forward with a shopping list of issues they might like him to consider.”The Association of British Bookmakers (ABB) told iGamingBusiness.com that it hopes to work with Wright as his department implements the introduction of the FOBT maximum stake reduction, which the group has previously estimated could lead to 4,000 shop closures and 21,000 job losses. The ABB said: “We look forward to working with the new Secretary of State, Jeremy Wright QC, MP to ensure a sustainable and responsible retail betting industry.“Betting shops are facing a massive threat as the new maximum stake on gaming machines will result in thousands of shop closures, job losses and significant economic consequences for horse and greyhound racing. It is vital that we work with the Secretary of State and his department to mitigate these impacts where possible and ensure that betting shops remain one of the safest environments in which to gamble in the UK.”The ABB this week told iGamingBusiness.com about some of the pressures that the industry will face in the next two years.An ABB spokesperson said: “While the implementation timeframe is a matter for the government, an appropriate timeframe would enable staff redeployment where possible, the introduction of voluntary redundancy schemes, the renegotiation of shop leases and the termination of contracts with many local suppliers in an orderly way.“In addition software changes to the architecture of over 200 games will be made. This process will also require each game to be independently verified.“Those shops that survive will continue to provide a safe place to gamble with staff interaction and industry leading responsible gambling measures and to support British sport.” Topics: Legal & compliance UK gambling industry reacts to appointment of Jeremy Wright as the UK’s new Culture Secretary Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter New Culture Secretary should target ‘stability’

WATFORD, ENGLAND – SEPTEMBER 12: Sean Cox of Sale looks on during the Aviva Premiership match between Saracens and Sale Sharks at Vicarage Road on September 12, 2010 in Watford, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) Sean Cox at SaleNew Edinburgh head coach Michael Bradley today strengthened his squad ahead of season 2011/12 by finalising deals to bring Sean Cox and Chris Leck to the capital.Cox, a lock forward, and scrum-half Leck were both previously with Sale Sharks, and become Bradley’s first signings since the former Ireland captain took charge earlier this month. The pair will join up with the rest of the squad when pre-season training begins on 6 June, and could make their Edinburgh debuts against their previous employers.Bradley takes his team to Edgeley Park for a pre-season friendly on Friday 19 August (kick-off 7.45pm), a week before Newcastle Falcons visit Murrayfield (Friday 26 August, kick-off 7.30pm) in a tie that will see the first airing of a series of exciting measures designed to improve the match-day atmosphere at the stadium in the new campaign.Cox brings with him the experience of 64 outings in the English Premiership, a dozen of them in season 2010/11, in addition to 16 appearances in the Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup. He has represented England from Schools to under-21 level, and is a former Sale Sharks Breakthrough Player of the Year. Born in Lancaster, the 26-year-old can also play on the flank.Leck, meanwhile, saw service with Preston Grasshoppers, Calder Vale, Manchester, Sedgley Park before joining the Sharks. The 25-year-old has played 11 times in the Premiership and five times in Europe as well as representing England at under-16 and under-18 level.Bradley hailed the addition of the players as a “terrific boost” ahead of the resumption of Celtic League and Heineken Cup hostilities. He said: “It’s great news for the club that we’ve secured Sean and Chris and that they’ll be here right from the first day of pre-season training in a couple of weeks’ time. The players are used to the sort of demanding environment and competitions in which Edinburgh operate, and they’ll both bring quality and appetite to their respective positions. “We’re still in the process of adding to what is already a strong squad full of international players. What we’ve got to offer is a team and club committed to continued improvement on and off the field, and it’s then a case of identifying the right players and characters to contribute to that progress.”Cox told www.edinburghrugby.org: “I’ve been really impressed by what Michael has had to say on his vision for the team, and I’m delighted to have become part of his plans. I’m looking forward to getting to know the rest of the lads in the next couple of months and to helping them push on next season.”Leck is equally energised by the prospect of turning out in the black and red, saying: “Edinburgh is a great club and city to be based in, and I’m delighted to have joined. I know all about the quality of player we’ve got at scrum-half, but I’ll be doing everything I can to stake my own claim and repay the faith the club have shown in me.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Sean CoxPosition: lock forwardDate of birth: 16 January 1985Place of birth: LancasterHeight: 6ft 5inWeight: 113kgRepresentative honours: England Schools, England under-18, under-19, under-21Chris LeckPosition: scrum-halfDate of birth: 21 May 1986Place of birth: ManchesterHeight: 5ft 9insWeight: 88kgRepresentative honours: England under-16, under-18

The main theme of the design is the juxtaposition of free-standing, sharp edged structures and lush vegetation, as found on site and in the neighbourhood. The positioning of the polygonal buildings at an angle to one another and on different levels opens up a shared, park-like outside space.

Instead, additional living space was created on the ground floor – large skylights in the hillside illuminate subterranean rooms and provide views of nature and the sky.Save this picture!© Staehelin Meyer ArchitektenIn the centre of the buildings there is a load-bearing core with the elevator and stairwell, onto which the functional rooms of the apartments are docked.

This impression is furthered by the private outside spaces: ground floor units have verandas situated in front of the loggias, those on the upper floors have roof gardens. Because of the varying room heights on the floor below, these are slightly sunken and are contained by the building.Save this picture!© Staehelin Meyer ArchitektenThe buildings are characterised by a choice of untreated, high-quality materials.

Syracuse, N.Y.Hundreds of Syracuse University students marched through snow during a Black Athletes Lives Matter (BALM) action against police brutality April 21. The march had been planned for months by student-athlete organizations, but coincidentally took place the day after cop Derek Chauvin’s conviction for the murder of George Floyd.Syracuse University students march in a Black Athletes Lives Matter action April 21.The multinational and multigendered crowd of students marched by teams from Skytop South Campus to Coyne Field for a rally. Then each speaker-organizer led conversations with each of the different groups and teams, sharing thoughts and experiences. According to participants, athletes were there representing all the university’s teams. Going by the most recent data from College Factual, SU — an NCAA Division 1 school competes in 17 sports. (tinyurl.com/up5zw)Speakers emphasized the need to stay focused and continue resistance. Syracuse junior rower Grace Asch said of Chauvin’s guilty verdict: “As we celebrate this moment in history, make sure to remember it is just that. A moment. One verdict, as we’ve seen in the past, makes no promise to the future. Let’s not confuse accountability for justice.” (tinyurl.com/8n4zrez4)Chris Elmore, an African American senior on the football team, testified that he has experienced police brutality since a young age and knows any traffic stop now could mean death. Two of his cousins were killed by police.Track and field athlete Eunice Boateng stressed: “We want to see something different happen, not just within this country, but all around the world. [We’re] finally using our voice and pushing and letting people know what kind of power we hold.”The student-athlete event continues years of protest at SU against racist, sexist and anti-disability policies at the school. Current organizing began in 2014 when the coalition group, THE General Body, occupied SU’s administration building for three weeks.Anti-racist action is happening throughout the Central New York area. One hundred West Genesee High School students walked out of class April 23 to protest other students who posted a mocking “George Floyd challenge” on social media. Outraged students demanded the school administration expel students involved in the racist posts.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Rep. Chu released the following statement:â€œIt has been nearly one year since the Senate â€“ Democrats and Republicans â€“ voted to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Yet, House Republicans continue to turn their backs on the will of a majority of Americans.â€œWith each passing day, the American people, and countless women and children continue to feel the devastating impacts of inaction. While the House Republican leadership stonewalled legislative action, more than 72,000 parents with U.S. citizen children have been deported. The devastating consequences of these family separations will be felt for generations to come.â€œThere is no time for excuses; soon the Republicans will be on the wrong side of history.

The site will now provide an ongoing educational resource for the local schools.“Natural pollinator creatures of butterflies, bees and birds are integral to the food we grow. Their habitats are under threat and we’re delighted that we can play a small role in reversing this trend,” said health and safety lead at Wyeth Nutritionals, Brian Shiels.“By restoring the natural habitat of the area we will hopefully see an increase in indigenous species of insects and butterflies in the local Askeaton area.”
