The anonymous buyer, under the guise of a British Virgin Islands-registered company and a Swiss private bank account, bought the three-floor apartment plus parking spaces and a wine storage room, signing a 999-year lease starting in November 2006, according to the paperwork. The flat is the most expensive sold in the UK to date.Around 45 apartments have now been sold and listed with the Land Registry, though some buyers have bought several flats and converted them into larger properties. The £136m sale, registered last week, was for two flats that will be knocked through into one. The buyer used lawyers from Ukraine and is spending up to £60m on interior work.The buyer is understood to have paid cash. SJ Berwin, the law firm overseeing the sales, said more than £1bn-worth of transactions are either complete or under offer. The Candy brothers completed the high-end apartment block in January, but have kept the identity of the growing number of residents secret.

ATG to create new commercial division in company restructure

first_img Topics: Strategy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Swedish operator AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) has set out plans to merge its sales, marketing and product and business development units into a single commercial department. Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Swedish operator AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) has set out plans to restructure its business by merging its sales, marketing and product and business development units into a single department.From August 1, the three units will operate together as the operator’s commercial unit – a move ATG said will better suit its business in the new-look Swedish market.Katarina Widman, who currently serves as chief sales officer at ATG, will head up the new department as chief commercial officer, while Sten Andersen will switch from the role of chief marketing and PR officer to become a senior advisor to Widman.ATG chief executive Hasse Lord Skarplöth has said that restructure will allow the operator to deliver better gaming experiences to its customers.“The previous organisational structure has successfully piloted ATG into the new gaming market; now the next challenge awaits, to give our customers the very best gaming experience on every occasion and in all channels,” Skarplöth said.“Therefore, we optimise this work – from our brands and products to customer communication – in one and the same department.”Meanwhile, ATG has also announced a number of senior management changes at its Danish subsidiary Ecosys as part of the wider restructure.Mikael Bäcke will step down as chief product and business development officer to become the new chief executive of Ecosys, while Henrik Friis will step down from the CEO role in order to become chief operations officer.“Ecosys is facing a very exciting journey,” Bäcke said. “We have just launched the Derby25 brand, which is aimed at the Danish horse racing customers.“Together with our other brands Bet25 and Rød25, we now have a competitive offer that I look forward to developing together with Henrik Friis and other employees at the head office in Silkborg.”The restructure comes after ATG was earlier this month unveiled as the first new member to join the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA) since its rebrand from ESSA (Sports Betting Integrity).

Swedish regulator clears four operators over under-18s bets

first_img Swedish regulator clears four operators over under-18s bets Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has cleared four operators of any wrongdoing over allegations that they offered betting on sporting events where the majority of participants were under the age of 18. Regions: Europe Nordics Swedencenter_img 17th October 2019 | By contenteditor Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has cleared four operators of any wrongdoing over allegations that they offered betting on sporting events where the majority of participants were under the age of 18.Hillside Sports, which operates the bet365 brand in Sweden, as well as Betsson, ATG and the Kindred Group-owned Spooniker have all had their cases dropped by the regulator.Spelinspektionen had initially said that all of the operators in question had been taking bets on the individual performances of under-18s in a football match, such as whether they would score during the game. The regulator issued a number of warnings and penalty fees as part of the process.Among these punishments was a SEK10m (£801,108/€926,058/$1.0m) penalty fee for Hillside, after the regulator in July said that it offered odds on five football matches in which a majority of players were aged 18 or under.However, Spelinspektionen has now backtracked on the rulings, saying that after further investigation, none of the four operators violated licence conditions as the featured players who were eligible for the bets in the games were, for the most part, over the age of 18.Licensed operators are not permitted to offer odds on events where the majority of participants are under the age of 18, as this is seen to increase the danger of minors being exposed to attempts to manipulate sporting results.Spelinspektionen added that it is working on regulations regarding bans and restrictions on betting in order to tackle match-fixing in professional sport. The regulator said betting on the individual performance of under-18s will be taken into account when drafting these rules.The regulator also charged a host of other operators over similar activities with betting on under-18s. Like Hillside, The Star Group was handed a penalty fee of SEK10m for offering odds on games majority of players were aged 18 or under on at least two occasions.Flutter Entertainment’s Betfair International and ElectraWorks, the operator behind, were handed penalties of SEK5.5m. Betfair was found guilty of one breach of regulations, and Electraworks of three breaches.Casinostugan and Zecure Gaming were each ordered to pay SEK3.5m for similar breaches, while Bethard was issued with a penalty fee of SEK2.5m and CoolBet operator Polar SEK700,000.Cherry’s ComeOn Sweden subsidiary was hit with a SEK9.5m penalty, while its Snabbare brand was handed a penalty of SEK6m, and Hajper, another ComeOn brand, SEK4.5m., meanwhile, was issued with a SEK100,000 penalty.Such rulings caused an outcry in Sweden, with the affected operators arguing that Spelinspektionen had not been clear about how it planned to enforce the prohibition on U18 betting. This prompted Gaming Innovation Group to temporarily suspend sports betting via its proprietary Rizk and Guts brands, saying this lack of clarity had put it in “an impossible position”.Swedish operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) also hit out at the ruling and requested an urgent meeting with the regulator, seeking to clarify its stance on the matter.last_img read more

No one, however, has filed a challenge to her seat as of October 10th.

What is going on behind our backs.  Nelson raised $2,100 in September, which brings his total fundraising tally up to $44,385. He has spent $20,110.10 on his campaign effort, which means he has $24,274.90 on hand. In September, Nelson had five donors (four of them from Apopka) that gave contributions ranging from $100-$750.“We continue to get enthusiastic support from the Apopka community,” Nelson said. “We are thrilled by the momentum that our campaign has maintained, and the vast majority of our contributions continue to be from the citizens of Apopka.”In the Seat #1 City Commission race, Alexander Smith raised $450, which included three individual donors and one business giving him contributions ranging from $50 to $200. Smith has raised a total of $6,271.15 and spent $3,891.40 on his bid to succeed Commissioner Billie Dean for the seat, which leaves him with $2,379.75 on hand.“The month of September was an awesome month where the focus was on people rather than politics,” said Smith. “Irma was a blessing: all citizens came together to aid one another with humanitarian acts of love and kindness. We opened our doors for those that needed a safe place as the hurricane passed through. We went to the aid of family, neighbors, and others after the storm to assist with whatever needs they had. For some, it was shelter, because they were without power. For others, it was a hot meal or water, or resources on how to recover. What I saw was a strong bond of togetherness among all the citizens of Apopka in the time of need. This is what makes Apopka the ideal place to live, work and raise a family.” Knight did not report any fundraising amount in September, which leaves him with $903.59 on hand.

Kidd raised $5,050, which eclipsed her Seat#1 opponents but also outdid mayoral candidates Joe Kilsheimer (Apopka Mayor) and Bryan Nelson (Orange County Commissioner).Suzanne Kidd raised $5,050 in her first month on the campaign trail.“I am thrilled that so many friends and supporters came out to both my Announcement event and my Campaign Kickoff party,” Kidd said. “With thousands of Apopka voters to reach out to, I am grateful for everyone who has already donated. There is a lot of excitement for my campaign because residents already know me as someone who shows up and listens to them. Attending every meeting of the City Council and Planning Commission is a priority for me because it’s so important to understand where Apopka is headed and what our City’s needs are. And during my six days of attendance at budget meetings this summer I saw a clear picture of what Apopka needs to do to be competitive and to keep our forward progress going. So, the strong early support makes me realize that Apopka residents really want a strong advocate and champion of Apopka on their City Council. I am truly grateful.”Kidd had 17 individuals and one business donate between $20 and $1,000. 13 out of her 18 donors are from Apopka. She spent $1,523.03 on her campaign, which leaves Kidd with $3,526.97 – the most of any Seat #1 candidate. Kilsheimer raised $3,850 in September, which increased his total contributions to $37,025. He has spent $13,031.40, which leaves $23,993.60 in his campaign account. His donations ranged from $100 to $1,000. Five of his donors were individuals, while three were businesses, but all eight were from outside of Apopka – which means that 63 out of 67 donors to the Kilsheimer campaign are from outside Apopka.

Sharpshooter Hayden Parker continues unbelievable kicking record as Sunwolves spring big upset

first_imgFriday Mar 29, 2019 Sharpshooter Hayden Parker continues unbelievable kicking record as Sunwolves spring big upset Hayden Parker has maintained his phenomenal kicking record as he was faultless from the tee yet again, as the Sunwolves upset the Waratahs away from home. Winger Semisi Nasirewa scored a sensational hat-trick for the side that are going to be discarded by SANZAAR.ADVERTISEMENTBeating the Waratahs – a week after they themselves had upset the Crusaders – was the Japanese side’s first ever win on Australian soil in Super Rugby, to go alongside their first win in New Zealand earlier this season against the Chiefs.The Australian side rested some key players, and their absence was certainly noticed, particularly Bernard Foley’s, but that does not take anything away from a Sunwolves team that defended superbly and took it to a Waratahs defence that had received a lot of plaudits going into the match.Of the two teams that played rugby in Newcastle tonight can you believe the Sunwolves are the ones getting punted from the comp. #WARvSUN— Lachlan McKay (@LachlanMcKay) March 29, 2019The Sunwolves have had a lot of attention this past week, after being controversially axed from Super Rugby following the 2020 season. In light of this news, and their performance, many fans have questioned the decision-making of SANZAAR.Sunwolves get axedSunwolves start winning against establish SANZAR teams #SuperRugby #WARvSUN— Callum (@ShutUpStott) March 29, 2019Of course, the decision to remove the Sunwolves from Super Rugby had many more factors to it than simply their performances, as there was financial difficulty. However, based on how they played against the Waratahs, many fans are bewildered that the decision has been made.ADVERTISEMENTWhile their performance was not great against the Lions in Singapore last weekend, the Sunwolves came to prove their doubters wrong in Australia this weekend. Many fans feel that this is the perfect response from the Japanese team, who would have been licking their wounds this [email protected] maybe sanzaar must review the decision about the @sunwolves. 2 big wins for them and both of them is away from home. Well done to Tony Brown and his team. @SuperSportTV @SuperRugbyNZ @AllBlacks— Tiaan du Toit (@ToitTiaan) March 29, 2019Number Ten Parker was superb with the boot yet again, as he kept up the record of not having missed a kick this year. Last year he set the record of 38 in a row, missed one, and then started his run of 26 from 26, despite having this tricky one from out wide after a brilliant Masirewa try in the corner.The SharpShooter Hayden Parker slots it from Wide out! Hasn’t missed in 2019 check this out! #WARvSUN #SSAction Great win for the @sunwolves— Sky Sports Rugby (@SkySportsRugby) March 29, 2019“The boys have got the bit between the teeth after being told we’re not going to be in the competition going forward. Everyone in the whole squad, management, just gives it everything we’ve got. Give it a crack on a Saturday and hope for the best really.” said Parker post match.ADVERTISEMENTThe Sunwolves played good rugby and it is clear that they are a team that are progressing in their fourth season in the competition.

Courageous women of the Paris Commune

first_imgThis month marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Paris Commune. The Commune was established during a bloody intercapitalist conflict called the Franco-Prussian War. In 1871, Parisian workers were in revolt against France’s Government of National Defense, seated in Versailles, which planned to surrender part of France and pay a fine to invading Prussian troops. On March 18, 1871, women seized cannons belonging to the popular militia known as the National Guard. The Guard refused to fire on the women and rebuffed attempts by Versailles troops to drag away its cannons. With the National Guard in control of Paris, plans were made to elect a new, workers’ government — the first of its kind. But the population was preoccupied with the military defense of the city.From day one, women took on a range of tasks, some traditional such as childcare, and others anything but. They sewed sandbags — and some women helped pile them onto the barricades. Women tended to the wounded as ambulance nurses. Many nurses sported rifles or revolvers and fired on the Versailles government’s troops.There were multiple women’s organizations, such as the Women’s Vigilance Committees and the Union of Women for the Defense of Paris. The latter was affiliated with the First International, led by Karl Marx in London. There were numerous social clubs where political discussion took place. Many were held in churches that had been taken over. Some clubs were specifically for women.Public education was restructured, independent of the Catholic Church, with schools for both girls and boys. Workshops were set up by the women’s organizations, creating jobs for women making products needed on the battlefield, including cartridges and sandbags. Women attendants staffed the military canteens, keeping the Commune’s soldiers fed.Women helped enforce the Commune’s requirement that all men aged 19 to 40 enlist in the National Guard — they hunted down and exposed “draft dodgers.” They publicly denounced police officers and their spouses as agents of Versailles.In so many ways, women were defending and advancing a vision of a whole new society. Their dream was put down in a campaign of terror that ended May 28 with some 20,000 Communards killed, their bodies piled in mass graves, and over 43,000 arrested. Passersby and children were among those slaughtered.Incendiary womenThe French word “pétroleuse” was coined by the bourgeoisie to defame women Communards. Not only were they attacked for abandoning their “feminine duties” as wives and mothers, they were accused of setting the fires that raged across Paris in the Commune’s last days. While the charges of arson were by and large false, the women leaders who emerged during this 72-day struggle had an incendiary passion for equality and justice.The most famous of many standout leaders was Louise Michel, who was equally skilled in shooting a rifle and political oratory. She played many roles as chair of the Women’s Vigilance Committee, including mobilizing women to care for the wounded. She defended the right of sex workers — who lacked regular work or needed to supplement meager wages — to serve as nurses. Some men opposed their presence.As arrestees were rounded up by the thousands, Michel escaped capture, but she turned herself in upon learning that her mother was arrested in her place.Other women Commune leaders included Beatrix Excoffon, Andre Leo, Elisabeth Dmitrieff (the 20-year-old leader of the Union of Women), Nathalie Lemel, Anna Jaclard and Sophie Poirier. Many of them, along with Michel, were put on trial and received harsh sentences, including banishment to a fortress, a life sentence of hard labor, years of imprisonment, or exile to various French penal colonies, including French-colonized Guiana in South America and Kanakry, which the French called New Caledonia, in the Pacific.Many of these exceptional women were unrepentant at trial. Michel famously told the court: “I am yours. Take my life if you want it.” She was banished to a fortress in Kanakry. Lemel unapologetically testified that “I drew up a manifesto with four other women. I cooperated in building the barricades.” Her sentence was the same as Michel’s. (Edith Thomas, “The Women Incendiaries”)Among the numerous, lesser-known women tried and sentenced were bookbinders, garment workers, cardboard makers, bootlacers, sex workers and housewives. Working women had formed the base of the Union of Women and the Vigilance Committees.Anti-colonial solidarityLouise Michel supported an 1871 revolt of 200,000 Algerians against French rule. She befriended the rebels who, along with 4,200 Communards, were exiled to Kanakry.Michel embraced the cause of the Indigenous Kanaks, learning their languages and using her teaching skills to offer education to children and adults. She supported the 1878 uprising against land theft under the French policy of “cantonment.” Its leader, Chief Atai, was among the 1,200 killed when France suppressed the rebellion.“The Kanaks were seeking the same liberty we had sought in the Commune,” Michel wrote. Her solidarity is still remembered in Kanakry, where an elementary school is named in her honor. (Nic Maclellen, “Louise Michel”)In 1880 a universal pardon was issued for all those sentenced in connection with the Paris Commune. After returning to Paris, Michel co-chaired a conference calling for amnesty for the Algerian rebels. She condemned French imperialist aggression in Madagascar and Vietnam. “There was no way that I could have stopped myself from throwing my life to the revolution,” Michel wrote in her memoir.The spirit of 1871 lives on!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Pop superstar Prince dies at his Minnesota home

first_imgFILE – In this Feb. 4, 2007 file photo, Prince performs during the halftime show at Super Bowl XLI at Dolphin Stadium in Miami. Prince’s publicist has confirmed that Prince died at his home in Minnesota, Thursday, April 21, 2016. He was 57. Associated Press Music professor says Placido Domingo harassed her, grabbed her breast printCHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — Pop superstar Prince, who was widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive musicians of his era with hits including “Little Red Corvette,” ”Let’s Go Crazy” and “When Doves Cry,” was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis, according to his publicist.His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told The Associated Press that the music icon died at his home in Chanhassen. No details were immediately released.The man born Prince Rogers Nelson stood just 5 feet, 2 inches and seemed to summon the most original and compelling sounds at will, whether playing guitar in a flamboyant style that openly drew upon Jimi Hendrix, switching his vocals from a nasally scream to an erotic falsetto or turning out album after album of stunningly original material. Among his other notable releases: “Sign O’ the Times,” ”Graffiti Bridge” and “The Black Album.”The Minneapolis native broke through in the late 1970s with the hits “Wanna Be Your Lover” and soared over the following decade with such albums as “1999” and “Purple Rain.”He was also fiercely protective of his independence, battling his record company over control of his material and even his name. Prince once wrote “slave” on his face in protest of not owning his work and famously battled and then departed his label, Warner Bros., before returning a few years ago.“What’s happening now is the position that I’ve always wanted to be in,” Prince told The Associated Press in 2014. “I was just trying to get here.”In 2004, Prince was inducted into the Rock and Roll of Fame, which hailed him as a musical and social trailblazer.“He rewrote the rulebook, forging a synthesis of black funk and white rock that served as a blueprint for cutting-edge music in the Eighties,” reads the Hall’s dedication. “Prince made dance music that rocked and rock music that had a bristling, funky backbone. From the beginning, Prince and his music were androgynous, sly, sexy and provocative.”Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
