Explosion in online gambling and funding of research by betting industry leads one professor to say: ‘We’re not facing up to the potential for harmExperts are warning that the UK must face up to the scale of its gambling problem with a lack of research, and industry influence, preventing proper scrutiny of a growing national habit. Joey Barton’s 18-month suspension from football on betting-related charges, and the player’s subsequent response in which he spoke of an “explosion in sports betting”, has brought the spotlight back on to a practice that is increasingly ubiquitous within the national game, though its influence hardly ends there.

KUALA LUMPUR: The 28-day maximum detention period under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act 2012 (Sosma) will continue to be enforced for another five years from July 31, 2017 as approved by the Dewan Negara tonight. The motion on the review of the implementation of subsection 4 (5) of the Act was submitted by Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed who said the proposed extension to the 28-day detention period under subsection 4 (5) of Sosma was the first to be made since it was enforced on July 31, 2012. Nur Jazlan, when winding up the debate on the motion, highlighted the fears of certain quarters who claimed the act was being arbitrarily used to carry out political detentions. "We look at Maria Chin's (Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah) case. She is not a political detainee. What is her political party? So, the allegation that Sosma is being used on political detainee is not true," he said.

Even if United’s standing in the Premier League table were to remain lowly, two trophies and a ticket back into the European big time would amount to a decent return from Mourinho’s first season at Old Trafford, especially in the light of ongoing injury woes. Guardiola, on the other hand, is certain to end the season without a trophy for the first time in his managerial career. If even a top four finish were to elude him, well, that would be a spectacular failure even though City have also had rotten luck with injuries. But if City were to give their neighbours a good spanking here and go on to finish in the top four, then much glee could be taken from today and a small measure of satisfaction could be extracted from the season as a whole. Actually, the style with which City have played on occasion can also be considered as a source of satisfaction, as well as a sign of progress. Thing is, of course, that style has regularly been undermined by ludicrous defending. Continue reading...

Yes, flight attendant Katherine S. may have had her authority questioned when he used the restroom quickly. However, the situation was resolved in the 1 minute he was out of his seat. I dont believe the plane moved an inch during that time. Why did Delta have to continue this saga by returning to the gate to remove him? What about him made you want to remove him from the plane? Was it the color of his skin that you didnt trust? Or the color of Katherine S.’s skin that made you trust her version of the story? When did using the bathroom become a security risk? Do you truly claim that this is Delta’s policy EVERY TIME this happens? Because, based on the events on Delta #566, we know that it doesnt happen this way every time… and, regardless of what Bryant R. says, I am sure that this occurs on a daily basis. My take-away from this experience is that I will not be flying Delta again.

Ukrainian says he is a boxer who can punch, Joshua is merely a puncherSaturday’s heavyweight title buildup continues on its educated way There was nothing more to say but they said it anyway. Hoovering up a few more pay-per-view clicks at the end of a long promotion ritually relies on pre-fight shenanigans but there was no chance of that when Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko stopped short of eloping together on Thursday as their world title fight on Saturday night looms. For weeks now, the bloodthirsty wing of the sport has complained these guys were way too nice. They shook hands every time they met, they laughed at each other’s jokes – such as they were – and, even when they had their face-off on Sky recently, there were as likely to tip the table on Johnny Nelson’s head as David Haye was to go on holiday with Tony Bellew.

Or in his own words, “if you need a halo vehicle and all that, that’s not our spiel.” Instead of going down that route, Fitzgerald wants Genesis to focus its attention on making “great products” that its customers will appreciate. Ironically, Genesis is setting its sights on companies like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, three car brands that have their own histories with halo models. Then again, these brands are also established enough to build halo models without compromising the integrity of their core lineups, whereas Genesis is still trying to lay a solid foundation for itself as Hyundai’s new luxury brand.

That figure represented a six percent increase from its 2015 sales figures. Equally impressive is the Mustang’s sales volume internationally where sales literally doubled in 2016 to 45,000 units. The significant increase is largely tied to the muscle car’s growing popularity in China where sales of the ‘Stang grew by an impressive 74 percent from its 2015 numbers. Other countries like Germany also saw increased demand for the car while new markets like Bonaire, Gibraltar, and New Caledonia all contributed in driving up the car’s sales volume.

But in many places the very existence of community is under threat. My parish in south London is a case in point. On the Elephant and Castle edge of this parish is one of the largest property developments currently under way in the capital. It’s an attractive place for developers as it is a run-down area, some of it with a zone 1 postcode. Which is why the skyline is full of cranes and the cafes full of men in hi-vis jackets.

S. sanctions against Russia. Cummings said the White House should be helping the committee and that there is a paper trail the panel will continue to follow. "They should be bending over backwards to help us," Cummings said. "It does not make any sense, and it makes the American people think the White House has something to hide. There's obviously a paper trail, ladies and gentlemen. There is a paper trail that the White House does not want our committee to follow, but let it be known that we will follow it. We will follow it with everything we've got." Earlier this week, the White House explained to the the House Oversight Committee in a letter why it would not provide further requested documents on Flynn, CNN reported . White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short outlined in a letter to the House Oversight Committee how it would not complete the request from the panel, referring some requests to the Department of Defense, saying the office doesn't have custody of some of the other documents or simply stating "we are unable to accommodate" others.

"Because Russia continues to cover for the Syrian regime, Russia continues to allow them to keep humanitarian aid from the people that need it, Russia continues to cover for a leader who uses chemical weapons against his own people, Russia continues to veto and Assad continues to do these things because they know Russia will continue to cover for them," Haley said. Haley told the other representatives to not fall for Russia's claims that U.N. reports from Syria are false. "I can tell you the Syrian people don't care about diplomacy, the Syrian people don't care about any sort of task forces, the Syrian people don't care about any of the things we said today. They're just trying to live their very last day," Haley said. The post Haley Blasts Russia's Defense of Syria and Human Rights Abuses appeared first on Washington Free Beacon .
