As history has proved, an orderly transition is often difficult to achieve and the next Egyptian government could view the West with animosity – a real issue given its position as a major oil transporter.Q.Who are the opposition parties and what do they think of the west?A.The main opposition party is called the Muslim Brotherhood. It has long opposed Mubarak and, despite its militant beginnings in the 1920s, is a staunch advocate of peaceful, democratic protest. However, the Brotherhood’s succession of Mubarak is not necessarily in the best interests of the West. Its foreign policy is likely to be antagonistic, especially with the US, which is unpopular among young Egyptians.Q.Does anybody else have a chance of succeeding mubarak?A.The next government is far from decided, but the dice are heavily loaded in the Brotherhood’s favour. Mubarak tolerated the group because of its religious affiliations while stamping out more radical groups, meaning there is little other organised opposition. However, the group has often co-operated with other fringe groups, such as those fronted by Nobel peace prize winner Mohamed ElBaradei (below).Q.Who is Mohamed ElBaradei and what role might he play?A.He is a former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an inter-governmental organisation under the auspices of the United Nations. He was given the Nobel peace prize for helping ensure nuclear power is not used for military purposes. He is highly respected and could help form a government of national unity along with the Brotherhood. It is likely he would be a moderate influence in terms of foreign policy. last_img read more

PlayOJO cuts television adverts in Sweden

first_img Topics: Casino & games Marketing & affiliates PlayOJO cuts television adverts in Sweden Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden 10th June 2019 | By contenteditor Casino & games Online gaming operator PlayOJO has opted to halt certain television advertising activities in Sweden in an effort to reduce exposure to underage players, and is now urging rival brands to follow suit. Email Address Tags: Online Gambling SkillOnNet-operated gaming brand PlayOJO has opted to halt certain television advertising activities in Sweden in an effort to reduce exposure to underage players, and is now urging rival brands to follow suit.The operator will no longer allow its adverts to be broadcast between the hours of 4pm and 9pm, so as to avoid promoting its services to young people.PlayOJO went live in the regulated Swedish market via the SkillOnNet licence earlier this year and admits that it has advertised heavily to support the launch.SkillOnNet chief executive Costas Alexandrou encouraged other operators to follow PlayOJO’s lead to better protect minors in the market. “As a responsible, licensed platform provider in Sweden, we aim to moderate our marketing and do everything we can to limit any potential exposure to underage players,” he said. “The PlayOJO team is now working with TV broadcasters to withdraw the ads.“If other online casino operators in Sweden really do care about responsible gambling, they too should review their advertising strategies and schedules and do everything they can to limit potential exposure to those under 18 years of age.”Swedish regulator Spelinspektionen has moved quickly to crack down on what it considers to be excessive advertising by licensees since the market opened in January this year. The Swedish Gaming Market Commission (Spelmarknadsutredningen) is currently in the process of analysing ways to control advertising, that may see a blanket ban on all gambling ads enforced.PlayOJO is not the first operator to commit to reducing its advertising. In April Sweden’s former gambling monopoly Svenska Spel stopped advertising its online casino for the rest of 2019, over concerns that the vertical could lead to significant increases in problem gambling in the market.

GiG will operate the new site from Malta on behalf of SkyCity.GiG, which has been working with SkyCity as a Tier-1 partner for a number of years, expects the launch to make a significant positive contribution to revenue from 2020 onwards.“This is an exciting day for SkyCity and one we have been working towards for some time alongside SkyCity Malta and our partner GiG,” SkyCity chief executive Graeme Stephens said.“While ultimately a regulated online gaming market remains the preferred solution, the site launch is another step on our journey of pursuing opportunities to grow and diversify our earnings, addressing a new, fast growing industry which is highly complementary to our land-based activities and offering customers a multi-channel gaming experience.”GiG chief executive Robin Reed added: “GiG is pursuing a strategy of becoming the global partner for strong brands in iGaming. SkyCity Entertainment Group is the largest and most reputable leisure and gambling firm in New Zealand.“We are very proud to have been entrusted to provide our full suite of gaming services to them. It has been great to work with Graeme and his accomplished team and due to a great collaboration we have managed to launch a state-of-the art digital casino experience only two months after signing the agreement.”The new launch comes after the New Zealand government last week commenced a public consultation to gauge public support for regulating new forms of online gambling.At present, Lotto NZ and the TAB are the only operators permitted to offer gambling products online, though the government acknowledged that an increasing number of New Zealanders were gambling via offshore providers.Interested parties are invited to submit comments to the Department of Internal Affairs’ Online Gambling Team by September 30.Image: Nick Kean 9th August 2019 | By contenteditor Casino & games Regions: Oceania New Zealand Email Addresslast_img read more

Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

first_imgHere comes Harry! Mallinder scores the try which Myler created. (Photo: Getty Images)Myler and Mallinder combineHarry Mallinder received the major plaudits and the Man of the Match award after scoring the late try which gave Northampton Saints a 19-15 win over Glasgow Warriors in Champions Cup Pool Three, but for me Stephen Myler should be taking just as big a bow as the young European debutant for the pin-point kick he sent across to the left wing to set up the try. It was intended for George North and came tumbling out of the air in exactly the right spot. North didn’t manage to gather it but Mallinder had cleverly put himself in the perfect place to gather his parry and scoot over the line. The cyclists had to endure some dreadful weather en route but were at least rewarded with a cracking match, as Bordeaux edged out Exeter 34-27.To donate to the Exeter European Cycle Challenge, visit the donations page here. Drew’s throughToulon’s winning try in red time at the end of their tight tussle with Wasps was scored by Australian Drew Mitchell. After Ma’a Nonu drew the stretched and desperate Wasps defence with a lateral run inside the 22, Mitchell cut the classiest of lines to slice through for a try which turned what looked like being an 11-8 defeat into a 15-11 win. Toulon have never lost at home in Europe and you could see this weekend’s team wanting to ensure they weren’t the team to wreck that proud record. Knockout blowGlasgow Warriors replacement Tim Swinson did his team a disservice when he got himself yellow-carded for throwing a couple of punches into the face of Mike Haywood right under the assistant referee’s nose. The Scots were leading 15-12 at Northampton Saints at the time, with six minutes to go of a game they really needed to win to qualify for the Champions Cup quarter-finals. The penalty Swinson gave away with his needless act of foul play was kicked to touch by Northampton deep into the Glasgow half and from there the Warriors had to defend a man short for the remainder of the game and ultimately conceded the try which cost them the win. Go, go Joe!If there is one player who ended up on the losing side this weekend and really didn’t deserve to be there, it has to be Wasps scrum-half Joe Simpson. He was absolutely outstanding in defence as his team went down 15-11 to Toulon in the Champions Cup in the cruellest fashion, with the final play of the game. Simpson made a try-saving tackle on Bryan Habana in the first half, turned over Dwayne Vermeulen at the base of an attacking scrum when Wasps were 11-8 up with 76 minutes on the clock, then chased back to tackle the same, much bigger opponent as he charged towards the line a minute later.Sadly, Toulon’s winning try came from a period of pressure set up at the death, after Simpson had put what should have been a clearing kick straight into touch, but that is not enough to turn this Saint into a Sinner in my eyes as he saved so many points earlier in the match. Thank you: Quade Cooper crosses for the try which started with Daly’s pass. (Photo: Getty Images)GiftedIt’s hard enough to beat Toulon at the Stade Felix Mayol, without gifting them an interception try. Elliot Daly threw a hesitant pass early in the game, intending to miss out Charles Piutau and find another team-mate outside him, but instead the ball was gratefully snaffled by Bryan Habana and he started the move which ended a few seconds later with Quade Cooper touching down over the Wasps’ try-line.Daly did make a superb break in the second half to set up the try for Guy Thompson and so effectively pay his team back for his slip-up, but as Wasps lost 15-11 at the death, that opening try was crucial in the end. Earls’ pearlMunster were already out of the running for the Champions Cup quarter-final spots before this weekend’s matches but they still found the gumption to beat Stade Francais 26-13 at Thomond Park and make the French side’s possible path to the knockout stages much trickier. Keith Earls produced a moment of magic just before half-time when Munster were trailing 6-5. He received the ball on halfway, cut back inside, spotted a gap and raced through the French defence to score a wonderful individual try and sent his team into the break ahead. It was a moment of class to gladden the hearts of Irish fans who have not had much to enjoy in this season’s European pool stages. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Good job! Dan Biggar (left) congratulates Sam Davies on a great game. (Photo: Huw Evans Images) On yer bikeA group of 22 Exeter Chiefs fans join the Saints this week after they cycled 485 miles from Sandy Park to Stade Chaban Dalmas to watch the Chiefs’ Champions Cup clash with Bordeaux-Begles.No, they didn’t miss the supporters’ coach – they took on the challenge to raise money for the Exeter Foundation and managed to exceed their original target of £20,000. The SaintsSam’s the manStep up and take a bow Sam Davies! The Ospreys’ replacement fly-half kicked 15 points in the second half of the European Champions Cup match against Clermont Auvergne to turn a 13-6 deficit into a 21-13 win and leave the Welsh region sitting on top of Pool Two with one round of matches to go.Clermont were top of the pile going into this game, but the Ospreys have fought tenaciously throughout this year’s pool stages and continued to do so on Friday evening. When Dan Biggar limped off with 37 minutes gone, Davies stepped into the breach and, as well as running the game well, kicked four penalties and a drop-goal.It is six years since the Ospreys last reached the knockout stages of Europe’s top tier competition, but they have a good chance of doing so now. “A lot of people wrote us off when we came into this group at the start of the season but from day one we have believed in ourselves and we have put ourselves in a good position going into next week,” says Davies. Round five of the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup took place this weekend and as the battle for places in the quarter-finals reaches its climax, the moments of outstanding play and corresponding moments of madness become all the more important. Champions: Richmond Ladies celebrate their win in the Premiership final. (Photo: Getty Images)Rich pickingsCongratulations go to Richmond who beat reigning champions Saracens 28-17 in the Women’s English Premiership final on Sunday. Emma Croker was the Player of the Match.We must also tip our hats to referee Nigel Owens, who took charge of his 100th European game this weekend. Pushing the boundaries: Kolelishvili escaped real punishment for his push. (Photo: Huw Evans Agency)The SinnersPush offClermont Auvergne’s flanker Viktor Kolelishvili was at the centre of one of the weekend’s biggest talking points as, when his side were defending close to their 22, waiting for the Ospreys to bring the ball out of a ruck, he stepped up out of the line and gave referee Wayne Barnes a hearty shove to move him out of his way.Barnes immediately blew his whistle and gave Kolelishvili a good talking-to, asking him to “please just ask me to move” in future. The referee gave a penalty to the Ospreys, but didn’t card the Georgian, who looked mightily relieved.It was an extraordinarily stupid thing for the flanker to do and it was also extraordinary that Barnes didn’t punish him properly. This incident has divided opinion on social media, with some people saying Barnes was empathetic and dealt with the situation well, while others are crying out for action to be taken against Kolelishvili. I fall into the second camp as I believe we simply cannot have players shoving referees unless they unavoidably collide with them.Former Leicester and England flanker Neil Back received a six month ban for pushing over referee Steve Lander during a Pilkington Cup final in the 1990s. While Kolelishvili’s push wasn’t as serious, as Barnes stayed on his feet, such a headless act should have resulted in more than a penalty.Kolelishvili was sin-binned later in the game after an altercation with Alun Wyn Jones. Clermont’s coaches need to sort out his discipline, and fast. You might say Freddie Michalak was a sinner in the same game as his truly woeful goal-kicking almost cost Toulon victory. He missed a couple of absolute sitters, but it is possible the blame doesn’t all lie at his door as he has been suffering with a leg injury and really didn’t look fit to kick, in which case the Toulon coaches must carry the can. Carry on winningSaracens maintained their 100% record in Champions Cup Pool One and Harlequins did the same in Challenge Cup Pool Three – and they have even managed to glean a maximum 25 points from their five wins, while Saracens have 24.The star of the show for Sarries was Owen Farrell, who not only scored 13 points in their 33-17 win against Ulster but made a glorious arcing run from outside the 22 to set up a try for Duncan Taylor – just one of the elements of the game which earned Farrell the Man of the Match award.The star man in Harlequins’ 34-26 win over Cardiff Blues was Chris Robshaw, who made 15 tackles and eight carries. His back row colleague Jack Clifford also had a massive game.Mighty Quins: Chris Robshaw helped Harlequins continue their perfect run.

Courtney Lawes demolishes Owen Farrell with another trademark tackle

This past weekend in their Champions Cup Quarter Final Lawes got Farrell again.As has often been discussed, Lawes’ line speed is phenomenal for such a big man, as many number tens can testify too. He shot off the line and levelled Farrell just as the ball was passed.Saracens won the game 29-20 and while Lawes scored a consolation try on full time, it was this brutal tackle that will be the contribution we remember most.View the match highlights » Saracens will face Wasps in an all-English semi final 23 April at the Madejski Stadium.“We know we’ll have to improve a lot of things against Wasps in the semi-finals,” said Mark McCall.You can see more trademark Courtney Lawes tackles in the Related Posts below thisADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Five takeaways from TCU’s dominant performance against Jackson State, 63-0

first_imgLinkedin Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Garrett Podell ReddIt The defense excelled After allowing Jackson State to reach a first and goal on the TCU five, the Horned Frogs didn’t budge. They forced the Tigers all the way back to the 35, courtesy of a forced fumble by cornerback Ranthony Texada. After that, TCU surrendered just 25 more yards all night.A lot of the success defensively can be credited to the depth Gary Patterson has at his disposal: TCU is tied for second nationally with 19 returning starters, including seven on defense.That experience showed in play’s like Texada’s, and the play of Ty Summers, who played at defensive end for the first time after playing his first two seasons at linebacker. Summers was outstanding at defensive end, totaling 4 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble.“I thought Ty Summers was exactly what I thought he’d be,” Patterson said. “He helped us there.”Even though five Horned Frog defenders were making their first starts Saturday, the defense worked as a cohesive unit, as a Summers forced fumble resulted in first-time starting linebacker Arico Evans’ scooping up the fumble and returning it to the house for six points.Even though Jackson State doesn’t nearly have the same firepower across the board as TCU, shutting out an opponent utilizing different players up and down the depth chart reveals a lot.“It’s fun watching guys have a good time playing,” Patterson said. “It was just as important to the one’s as it was to the two’s and three’s to keep the shutout going.”After defensive play like this, the Horned Frogs felt a lot differently heading into their matchup against Arkansas, compared to the last season opener when they allowed 41 points against South Dakota State.Kennedy Snell’s performance gives TCU another all-purpose weapon Running back Kennedy Snell made a big impression in Fort Worth Saturday, scoring on his first touch of his collegiate career.

Collier Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee + posts Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Facebook printTCU dominated Jackson State to open their 2017-2018 campaign, 63-0.Here are five things to know about the lopsided Saturday contest between the Horned Frogs and the Tigers.Kenny Hill shows improvement, but he is still prone to throw a big mistake The Horned Frog offense was clicking from the get-go for Kenny Hill and company, as Hill completed his first eight passes of the game and finished with 206 yards to along with 4 touchdowns, the second-most of his TCU career.“He runs the offense, I think his teammates trust him,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said.Hill was able to succeed because of the familiarity in the Horned Frog attack, and the depth at wide receiver with Ty Slanina, Shaun Nixon and KaVontae Turpin all returning from injury-plagued seasons last year, as 14 different receivers caught passes.“I’m continuing to get more comfortable in the offense and the game plan,” TCU quarterback Kenny Hill said. “Everything flowed well, but the one thing we need to work on is tempo, I think we need to go even faster. That’s something we need to work on.”Another thing Hill needs to improve on in order to leave Fayetteville, Arkansas unscathed after next week’s matchup with the Razorbacks is avoiding the big mistakes: interceptions. He lead the Big 12 in interceptions last season, but he showed progress in not throwing one in the first half against Jackson State.However, Hill relapsed to a tendency he had last season, which was forcing tough throws.Saturday’s tough throw was down the left sideline to KaVonte Turpin, who was double-covered. The result was an interception, which ended up being the Horned Frogs sole turnover against Jackson State.“I didn’t like the interception to start the second half,” Patterson said. “We just need to drop back, throw quick, run the offense, and do what we need to do.” Snell finished with 40 total yards on five touches and a touchdown, flashing a lot of natural talent.“There’s a lot of potential with Kennedy Snell, like a KaVontae Turpin, like a Deante’ Gray,” Patterson said. “He’s got wiggle, he can play out wide and he can play in the backfield.”However, players like Snell, Turpin, and Desmon White need to be kept on snap-counts in order to preserve their health. All three playmakers weights range from 153 to 170 pounds, and their heights range from 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches. They’re not every down players, but if offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie can build a rotation so that one those three players is on the field at all time, that will make the Horned Frog attack extremely potent.Shawn Robinson flashes potential After winning a state title at DeSoto High School in December, expectations were sky-high for the true freshman quarterback. His time on the field Saturday illustrated both the tantalizing talent and the growing pains he’ll experience.“I think Shawn Robinson was a little bit deer in the headlights, fumbled a snap, but the more he plays the better he’s going to get,” Patterson said. “I thought the slant was a great throw to TreVontae Hights on the play action. As he learns, you’ll see him make big strides into next weeks.”Gary Patterson earns win No. 150, continues to understate his accomplishmentsTCU’s victory over Jackson State pushed Patterson’s win total in Fort Worth to 150, second-most in the country behind Kansas State’s Bill Snyder, with 203, for head coaches at their current school.Patterson took his accomplishment with a grain of salt.“That means I can get to 151,” Patterson said. “Getting to 160 at the end of the season will make me even more excited. It’s a lot of long nights, lot of recruiting, a lot of heartaches, and I’ve been around TCU for a while. For us, that means we have a chance to stay here a little bit longer.”In the two previous seasons his team was coming off a non-winning record in his 17-year tenure as head coach, TCU went a combined 23-2 en route to a pair of conference championships: the 2005 Mountain West title and the 2014 Big 12 title. The Horned Frogs were 11-1 in 2005 after a 5-6 campaign in 2004, while going 12-1 with Big 12 and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl championships in 2014 after a 4-8 season in 2013.With the 21 scholarship seniors on the roster this season, nearly three times the total of eight from last year, Patterson has the potential to turn TCU around once more.TCU hits the road next Saturday to face the Arkansas Razorbacks in Fayetteville.

Court hears Gao Yu’s appeal behind closed doors

first_img China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further News A Beijing people’s high court today finally heard journalist Gao Yu’s appeal against the seven-year jail sentence she received in April on a charge of divulging state secrets. Police turned away journalist and diplomats who tried to attend because the court decided to hold the hearing behind closed doors. RSF_en Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Gao Yu reaffirmed her innocence and answered questions from the judge and her lawyers, but no further details of the hearing were made public. Her lawyers, Mo Shaoping and Shang Baojun, said afterwards that the court’s decision would be announced on 26 November.“We condemn the Chinese judicial system’s lack of transparency,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “The foreign embassies whose representatives were turned away should publicly protest against the court’s decision to hold a closed-door hearing.
”“We reiterate our call for the release of Gao Yu, who did none of the things she is alleged to have done. Her state of health, which continues to be worrying, constitutes an additional reason for her immediate release.”Aged 71, Gao suffers from a heart ailment and lymphadenopathy, a swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck. Her condition has worsened significantly since her arrest in May 2014 and, according to her lawyers, she had a heart attack last month.Judges had previously rejected her lawyer’s request for an appeal hearing three times since her conviction seven months ago. As the right of appeal is not automatic in China, a judge must first decide whether the request for an appeal hearing submitted by the defendant’s lawyers is admissible.Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, China continues to be the world’s biggest prison for news and information providers, with a total of 107 professional and citizen-journalists currently detained.Chine also continues to operate a massive censorship and propaganda apparatus both within and outside its borders.

While, his wife Melissa is a personal trainer and coach offering multi-sport and triathlon programs.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Patrick told the Limerick Post this week that the pair were excited about their visit to Ireland for the Great Limerick Run and has even convinced some Irish relatives, renowned in their own sporting fields, to take part in the event.“We always look forward to our trips home to Ireland but we are especially looking forward to this trip as I know I have recruited 12 to 20 cousins and friends to run,” Patrick enthused.Patrick’s grandmother Katherine Mary nee Loughnane was born in Feakle and the running coach is organising a big family reunion to coincide with his Limerick visit.“I have a number of Loughnane cousins that live in and around Limerick. Olive Loughnane, four time Irish Olympian, will be at the reunion and, although I have not seen him in years, there is hope that my second cousin, Ger Loughnane, will be there,” he revealed.Savage has an extensive coaching background in the Chicagoland area and also remains active in the Illinois running community. He served as the head race referee for the 2006 and 2007 Chicago Marathon, and head men’s referee in 2008.Asked if he had any tips for runners taking part in the Great Limerick Run on May 4, he commented, “They need to do the training for whichever race they choose to run. Running hills in practice is very good preparation for any race as is getting in the long runs. Another important factor is dressing for the weather and taking liquids during the race.”For more details log onto www.greatlimerickrun.com.
