Mybet named exclusive partner of Deutche Eishockeyliga Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Mybet, the German-facing betting and gaming brand that relaunched last year, has been named the exclusive sportsbook partner of the country’s top ice hockey competition, the Deutsche Eishockeyliga (DEL).The deal, which sees the operator resume sponsorship activities following the business’ collapse, acquisition and revamp, gives Mybet branding space in TV spots and on the league’s social media channels.It will be focused on the DEL’s online channels, with the partners planning to collaborate on fan activation activities on social media.“We look forward to this strategic cooperation with Mybet,” DEL managing director Gernot Tripcke commented.“This gives our ice hockey fans the opportunity to bet on their favourites. “At the same time, we will look to raise the profile of ice hockey in Germany through a series of campaigns,” Tripcke added.The partnership comes after Mybet last year relaunched a Kambi-powered sportsbook, following a deal struck between the supplier and the brand’s new owners, Malta-based investment body Rhinoceros Group, a business led by former Bonnier Gaming Malta operations chief Tobias Carlsson.The sportsbook product was complemented by a new casino offering, through a deal with EveryMatrix.Rhinoceros swooped in to acquire the brand and Mybet’s digital assets in December 2018, at a time when it had looked set to disappear from the market, having been active since 1998.The operator, which had been in dire financial straits for some time, was declared insolvent in August 2018, owing some €4m in unpaid sports betting taxes.This came weeks after discussions with an unnamed investor to acquire the business had collapsed over what the operator described as unworkable conditions set by the potential buyer.Mybet previously served as a partner of Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach, and at one point had a partnership with tabloid newspaper Bild.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate By Denise Badger-Connell, Publisher     International Workers’ Day took place a couple days ago, on May 1st. You may have missed it, not knowing it was a day different than any other. But in Apopka, last Friday stood out. It stood out because it was a day that brought more smiles and raised more hopes than usual for a lot of essential workers that didn’t know they were.     With the COVID-19 pandemic, celebrating May 1 as International Worker’s Day became particularly important to those who work with the struggling labor force in our community, like the Farmworkers Association of Florida, Apopka (FWAF), and the Hope CommUnity Center (HCC). These two non-profits have witnessed first hand the huge shifts happen since March, with hundreds of local workers losing their jobs and livelihoods, and still others who have long been “essential” finding they are now even more so. They have seen these workers risking their health, their family’s health, and their lives to keep the rest of us safe and fed.     The list of essential workers is long. Many, like healthcare workers, first responders, military and law enforcement, have always been recognized as such. But there are others, such as supermarket employees, delivery workers, janitors, and farmworkers especially, who have not.     While those in this latter group have always been essential by the sheer nature of what they do, they have struggled to gain the same respect as the other sectors more commonly acknowledged. Many of these laborers toil in the shadows of an immigration system that drives them underground, even though they contribute economically through labor, consumption, and taxes paid.      While other essential workers around the United States, from companies such as Amazon, Whole Foods, Instacart, Walmart, FedEx, Target, and Shipt threatened to walk off their jobs on May 1st and protest the lack of basic protections for continuing on the frontlines, and still others planned a rent strike that day that would be the largest in nearly a century, the FWAF, and HCC organized a more peaceful route of action.     Together they put a call out for neighbors to stand with these workers, form a caravan to visit them, and applaud and appreciate them in person. They decided on May 1st they would make sure all essential workers got the recognition they deserved, regardless of their background or their national origin.     Gathering together that Friday with signs and vehicles, careful to respect the CDC guidelines to wear face masks, use hand sanitizer, and maintain social distancing, they began the day with an informative and educational press conference at the Farmworkers Association building in Apopka.     Jeannie Economos, Pesticide Safety and Environmental Health Project Coordinator of the FWAF shared, “Farmworkers who harvest our food and health care workers who take care of us when we are sick have always been essential workers, but this new pandemic has brought them into the spotlight like never before. On May Day, International Workers Day, we stand in solidarity with the workers who risk their health and their lives every day while they hold the very fabric of our society together in this crisis.”      With spirits high and determined then, the lively group loaded up into cars and vans and started out, visiting nurseries and applauding workers there, and concluding with a visit of  appreciation to the health care workers at the hospital.     The volunteers and staff, neighbors and strangers who came together to say thank you, raised awareness of the disparity of concern and well-being of so many we depend on.     And they raised hope too.     They raised hope that one day #WeStandWithEssentialWorkers will truly be a day where one and all who labor in our community will be better known, recognized and appreciated for what they do and who they are, not just on May 1st, but every day, and not just in Apopka, but everywhere.     It’s a hope. And one that all of us together, with intentionality, can help make happen.     Visit the Farmworkers Association of Florida, Apopka and Hope CommUnity Center for more information and get involved.      For those in the shadows, incentive checks will never arrive, and they will never qualify for unemployment benefits, even though money is deducted from their wages before they are paid.     These are the forgotten ones.     Except they weren’t on May 1st, thanks to the FWAF and HCC. These two non-profits came together to do something about it, something different, something from and with the community so these invisible and underappreciated workers would know Apopka cared.

first_img According to Purdue’s moth trap report, black cutworm moth numbers are high and scouting on corn that is emerged should be happening now.  The southern half of the state is already seeing some of the effects of black cutworm.  The use of systemic insecticides and certain genetic packages can suppress numbers, but will not control a heavy population of cutworms.To scout, we suggest looking at 1 location every 20 acres, looking at 20 plants at each location.   When 3 to 5% of plants are damaged and larvae are found, insecticide should be applied. There are many options for controlling black cutworm, and it doesn’t take much damage to pay for the insecticide treatment.  Before spraying, I suggest scouting your fields to make sure there is a problem.

RSF calls on the Ontario Provincial Police to drop all charges against him. November 11, 2020 Find out more CanadaAmericas Protecting journalists Environment November 19, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Canada News Organisation Karl Dockstader, an award-winning journalist from the Indigenous Oneida Nation of the Thames, was arrested on September 2 in relation to his coverage of a land dispute on an Indigenous territory. Dockstader had spent half the summer documenting Indigenous land defenders’ efforts to resist construction of a residential development on Haudenosaunee land. The Ontario Provincial Police charged him with criminal mischief and failure to comply with a court ordered injunction. Police have banned him from returning to the site under threat of further charges. A court date has been set for Nov. 24.“It is deeply disappointing that the Ontario police have chosen to disregard Karl Dockstader’s legally-protected right to report on this matter, which is of clear public interest to Canada and Indigenous people in the region,” said Daphne Pellegrino, Advocacy Manager of RSF’s North America bureau. “The Ontario Provincial Police should drop these charges and ensure that their actions do not infringe on the press covering such events moving forward.”This is not an isolated incident. In recent years, police have pressed charges against two other journalists for reporting on land conflicts between Indigenous peoples and government authorities. In February, American filmmaker Melissa Cox was arrested while documenting Wet’suwet’en land defenders’ efforts to block the Coastal GasLink pipeline project, though her charges of mischief and trespassing were recently dropped. In 2016, reporter Justin Brake faced civil and criminal charges after covering an Indigenous-led occupation of the Muskrat Falls site. Following his case, a court decision by the Newfoundland and Labrador Court of Appeal affirmed that special considerations apply to journalists covering indigenous protests, even in injunction zones. Brake’s charges were dismissed in June.Canada is ranked 16 out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. “We must impose democratic obligations on the leading digital players” September 16, 2020 Canadian police arrest Indigenous journalist covering land rights movement News CanadaAmericas Protecting journalists Environment News January 15, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics”last_img read more

The gap, however, has narrowed by about 4 percentage points from their widest points following the Great Recession.”While this gap has been shrinking in recent years, the disparity is a glaring example of persistent inequities in wealth building and access to home equity across races in the U.S. housing market,” wrote Economist Treh Manhurtz for Zillow.Communities of color suffered more than others during the Great Recession, and it has taken longer for this population to bounce back.”Predatory loans were targeted and designed to take advantage of the most vulnerable communities. The ensuing wave of foreclosures hurt both Black/Latinx homeownership and home values disproportionately, and growth in these communities was relatively slow for years even after the nation as a whole began to recover,” Manhurtz said. “Year-over-year home value growth turned positive for U.S. homes in August 2012, but the racial gap in home values didn’t start to close for Black and Latinx homeowners until 2014.”Manhurtz said he doesn’t expect a widening of the gap related to the current recession, adding that the same factors that widened the gap in the Great Recession are not surfacing this time.”Thanks to rock bottom rates on the most secure mortgages, extended forbearance programs, and rising home prices, there are no signs of another widening of the gap coming this year. However, through these turbulent times, continued vigilance and targeted intervention by policymakers is crucial to keep the progress going for communities of color.”Zillow’s report breaks down the home-value inequality by region, and shows that large metros with the smallest spread between Black-owned home values include Riverside (1% value gap), San Antonio (3%), Las Vegas (3%), and Portland (4%). Among the most unequal, it showed, are Detroit (46% value gap), Buffalo (43%) Birmingham (43%), St. Louis (41%), and Milwaukee (40%). Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

first_img Brundidge residents ‘disheartened’ by decision Latest Stories Skip Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Delatha Mobley said that she, too, is extremely disappointed with the city council’s decision to ahead with the paving project.“A group of us attended a public hearing at the city council meeting on July 19, concerning the remediation of an outdoor recreation park on the south end of town,” Mobley said.“I specifically asked if that (recreation) park would have any effect on the park at Brundidge Station. My question was, ‘Will we still have our park at Brundidge Station?’ and his reply was that it would have no effect, that we would still have our park at Brundidge Station.’ I believed him when he said that.”Mobley said she checked the minutes of the July 19 meeting and her comments were not included.“In talking with a couple of council members about the park at Brundidge Station, they said that they have been discussing the paving for a while,” she said. “I have not been able to find a mention of it in the city council’s minutes until it was approved on Sept. 20.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder By Jaine Treadwell Published 8:25 am Thursday, October 6, 2011 Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

first_imgKSTP-TV(BLOOMINGTON, Minn.) —  The 5-year-old who was thrown from the third floor of the Mall of America in Minnesota continues to be treated for life-threatening injuries as details emerge about the attack, police said.“This was a tough one,” Bloomington Police Chief Jeff Potts said in a press conference on Saturday afternoon, describing the scene upon his arrival at the mall on Friday as “gutwrenching.”On Friday, 24-year old Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda allegedly threw the child, who has not been identified, from the third floor of the mall, police said. The child was with at least one of their parents at the time of the incident.“This is just under a 40-foot fall,” Potts told reporters. He noted that there were many eyewitnesses and video of the incident.Police do not think there is a relationship between Aranda and the child, but the Minneapolis resident has a history with the police, including a July 2015 incident where he threw an object from one of the floors at the same mall. Aranda was arrested for obstruction, disorderly conduct and damage to property, according to the Bloomington Police.Later that same year, he had two altercations at local restaurants, including one in which he refused to pay his bill. In a separate 2015 incident, Aranda threw a glass at an employee at a restaurant and was arrested and charged with trespassing, fifth-degree assault, obstructing the legal process and disorderly conduct, police said.On Saturday, Potts declined to give specifics about Aranda’s mental health but said some of the previous cases had been handled in mental health courts. Potts also pointed out that there had been prior convictions, and said that Aranda had previously been on a trespass notice at the Mall of America but that such notices usually expire after six-month or one-year increments — Aranda’s prior arrests were in 2015.Potts said prosecutors would finalize charges by Monday at noon.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
