Then Doctors Realized SomethingOpulent Express THE future of a £40m deal to take over City stockbroker Seymour Pierce suffered a blow last night amid a botched management overhaul at its US buyer.Gerova Financial Group, a New York-managed reinsurance company, had engineered a reverse takeover of Seymour Pierce that would have seen its chairman Keith Harris become chair of a group worth about £400m.Seymour Pierce announced in December that Gerova was to buy it and a third business, equities trader Ticonderoga Securities, and merge the two brokers. It would earn Harris an estimated £10m payout from his 25 per cent stake in Seymour Pierce.But Gerova’s shares plunged by over a third yesterday after its newly-named chairman Dennis Pelino refused to take the job.Pelino’s decision to walk followed the resignation of former chairman Gary Hirst and four board members last week after Gerova announced a board overhaul. A report in January also raised questions about Gerova’s finances, though the company said the paper was inaccurate. Gerova shares have slumped from more than $86 (£53.40) last June to just $6.39 yesterday.Harris last week postponed his new role as chair and the ongoing concerns could mean Seymour Pierce has to abandon the plans. Michael Hlavsa, Gerova’s chief financial officer, is to lead the firm until it recruits a new chairman. whatsapp KCS-content Wednesday 16 February 2011 8:57 pm whatsappcenter_img Seymour deal in doubt as Gerova tanks Read This Next’The View’: Meghan McCain Calls VP Kamala Harris a ‘Moron’ for BorderThe Wrap4 ideal Zion Williamson trade scenarios from the New Orleans PelicansSportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapRick Leventhal to Exit Fox News Just as His Wife Kelly Leaves ‘RealThe WrapNewsmax Rejected Matt Gaetz When Congressman ‘Reached Out’ for a JobThe Wrap’In the Heights’ Underwhelms at Box Office With $11.4 Million DebutThe WrapJason Whitlock, Former ESPN and Fox Sports Reporter, Resurfaces at BlazeThe WrapFox News’ Mark Levin Says Capitol Riot Suspects ‘Would Be Treated Better’The Wrap’Sex and the City’ Sequel Series at HBO Max Adds 4 More ReturningThe Wrap Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Betcris becomes MLB partner in Latin America

first_imgMarketing & affiliates Latin America-facing igaming operator Betcris has become an official partner of Major League Baseball (MLB).Betcris has signed a multi-year international partnership with MLB in Latin America, meaning it can use the league’s logos on its website and mobile app.International broadcasts of MLB Jewel Events and postseason match-ups will feature marketing and advertising of Betcris in Latin American countries and territories where the company is licensed and regulated.In addition, Betcris and MLB will also collaborate on best-in-class practices to protect the integrity of baseball games.“Partnering with MLB gives us a great competitive edge and reflects the dedicated efforts we have undertaken to be a leader in sports gaming,” said JD Duarte, Betcris’ chief executive.“This partnership will strengthen Betcris’ position in the gaming industry by allowing us to cover all the action in the field and it could not come at a better time.“We share a vision with MLB to deliver fun and exciting content to our audiences and that starts with the 2020 season.”The partnership with Betcris is quite a turnaround for the MLB, which until 2017 led the fight to maintain the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) and restrict sports betting in the US.Betcris, which is based in Malta and owned by Costa Rica-headquartered TV Global Enterprises, counts the US as a restricted country and does not offer services to players there. It operates in nine Latin American markets, including Mexico, Peru and Panama.“Some of MLB’s most loyal fans reside in Latin America, so it was important to partner with the right gaming operator in the region to engage those passionate fans and also help us reach new audiences,” said Kenny Gersh, executive vice president of Gaming and new business ventures at MLB.“Betcris has taken great strides in recent years to listen to their users and continually offer great services and we believe their experience will only further elevate the engagement opportunities for our Latin American fans.”Earlier this week the MLB signed an international partnership with Tabcorp in Australia. Its season is due to get under way on 23 July.In May, Betcris joined the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA), becoming the first local operator in the Latin America region to become a member of the integrity watchdog.Image: U.S. Navy Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: LATAM 17th July 2020 | By contenteditorcenter_img Betcris becomes MLB partner in Latin America Latin America-facing igaming operator Betcris has become an official partner of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Anglican leaders continue to reflect on Paris terror attacks

first_img Rector Bath, NC [Anglican Communion News Service] Church services and vigils have been held throughout the world in response to the terror attacks on Nov. 13 in Paris which killed at least 129 people. As they were taking place, Anglican leaders continued to reflect on the atrocities.“The sorrow in Paris is heart-breaking and the evil of those who planned and perpetrated the Paris atrocities is beyond measure or words,” Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said. “We weep with the victims and with the bereaved.“France is deeply wounded but will prevail with that courage and strength she has always shown. Wherever there is such wickedness Christ suffers afresh in the suffering of every human being. In solidarity let us be the source of consolation.“The violence of this evil group brings terror to all, including in the Muslim world where its cowardly acts are opposed by many. This is a global and generational struggle against an evil cult that chooses death and fear. We choose life and hope, to overcome their hate with the power of God’s love.“In solidarity across all faiths and none, and with all human beings, rather than in the victimization of any, we will find the way to defeat the demonic curse of terrorism. Christians are called, like Jesus, to stand with the suffering and broken and to oppose evil and fear with all their strength.”The bishop in charge of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, the Rt. Rev. Pierre W. Whalon, said, as part of a longer thoughtful commentary on the situation: “We need to see that loving the enemy who can do such things to us is not just vapid idealism. The whole point of the Christian story is summed up thus: ‘While we were yet his enemies, Christ died for us’ (Romans 5: 6-10). In other words, God shows love for us precisely by putting off the divine power that we crave.“The day after this heinous attack, we may wish for God to come down and wipe out our enemies. Instead, Christ on the cross, completely powerless at the last, shows us that it is only love that can overcome hatred, evil and even death.“Jesus asks us to follow his way, as love is the only power in this world that can literally and figuratively save us. He certainly did not ‘enable’ his enemies. In the short term, we need the police and the military, and we should be grateful that Parisians have such courageous and professional forces. They and the firefighters and emergency medical teams need our prayers and deserve our support. Not to mention the wounded and dead, and their families and friends.”The primate of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, Archbishop Mouneer Anis, also wrote a considered opinion following the attacks. In it, he said: “Perhaps it is in the darkest hours that the light shines out the brightest, that the vision of the kingdom is clearest, no matter how distant. The path to that kingdom is never so clearly laid, but the vision is there. It is a vision of all nations streaming forward, all division cast aside, all conflict passed, Jew and Gentile together.“So today I mourn for all the victims of this unthinkable violence. I mourn for their family. And their family is this world. Every last person is their neighbor. Every last person is a victim of this tragedy – violence is indeed an evil which harms both victim and perpetrator.“I pray for the citizens of Paris, for the country of France, for Europe, for every country the world over, as they bow their heads from the weight of death and useless violence as it continues to visit itself upon brother after brother, sister after sister. I pray for healing, for forgiveness, and for hope in the hearts of the affected families.“Wrong has been done, and there is not one person on this world who is not a victim of it.”Archbishop of York John Sentamu said: “Our shock and sadness today must lead us to pray for all those affected by this evil and senseless violence. Our hearts go out to those bereaved or injured. We must pray earnestly that God will lead us into his paths of peace, resisting evil, and looking for every opportunity to build bridges of friendship and understanding in our communities today.“And we need to remember that ‘to respond to violence with violence increases darkness on a night already void of stars,’ ” he added, quoting Martin Luther King Jr. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Collierville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Leonardo Ricardo says: Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Comments are closed.

Mumia Abu-Jamal’s health emergency: Interview with Dr. Ricardo Alvarez

first_imgMumia Abu-Jamal, the internationally renowned journalist, Pennsylvania prison inmate and former Black Panther widely considered to be a political prisoner, is now experiencing a health emergency. A Feb. 27 call from Mumia alerted supporters who immediately began a campaign to telephone Pennsylvania Secretary of Corrections John Wetzl, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. This succeeded in having Abu-Jamal taken to an outside hospital where he received four days of treatment. The following interview with Abu-Jamal’s medical consultant, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez, was originally printed March 14 in The Jamal Journal, published by the uncompromising International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal. The collective call for Abu-Jamal’s release could not be more urgent. As Abu-Jamal’s physician consultant, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez says: “The only treatment is freedom.” More information at Abu-JamalJamal Journal: Mumia Abu-Jamal is now suffering from COVID-19, congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis and a severe worsening of his chronic debilitating skin condition. As a consultant physician, please tell us about his current condition. What does Abu-Jamal need that he is not getting from the prison authorities?Dr. Ricardo Alvarez: The first thing I should note is that in discussing Mumia’s health, it is important for his supporters to understand that he has sacrificed some measure of privacy. This sacrifice has been necessary at times so that supporters can be vigilant of his health. I believe Mumia seeks to help improve the conditions of ALL prisoners. We saw this with the example of [Mumia’s fight for] the legal precedent set to access Hepatitis C medications. In this regard it is particularly important that Mumia supporters continue to link with and support all political prisoners and all prisoners.JJ: Can you please tell us about Mumia’s COVID diagnosis?RA: Mumia needs freedom for his COVID. He can get that from prison authorities. There is a compassionate release program, which cruelly is used to release prisoners on their deathbed and then only in limited cases. It doesn’t have to be that way. COVID is an extraordinary circumstance and a compelling basis for decarceration of our elderly. It won’t happen until we demand action.In fact, Dr. Brie Williams, Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, director of the Amend: Changing Correctional Culture Program and one of the nation’s experts on care of the elderly incarcerated, has written an affidavit for release based on COVID. Dr. Williams writes: “I submit this affidavit in support of any defendant seeking release from custody during the COVID-19 pandemic; so long as such release does not jeopardize public safety, and the inmate can be released to a residence in which the inmate can comply with CDC social distancing guidelines. The statements in this affidavit are based only on the current state of emergency. . . .”According to Dr. Williams, because of the COVID pandemic, the entire community is at risk if prison populations are not reduced. Prisons are ill equipped to humanely stop the spread of infection. Correctional officers bring COVID into and out of prisons. Furthermore, inmates have the highest risk of acute illness and poor health outcomes if infected with COVID. There are more than 2.3 million people incarcerated in the United States, approximately 16% of whom are age 50 or older. The risk of coronavirus to incarcerated seniors is high. Their advanced age, coupled with the challenges of practicing even the most basic disease prevention measures in prison, is a potentially lethal combination. To make matters worse, correctional facilities are often ill equipped to care for aging prisoners, who are more likely to suffer from chronic health conditions than the general public. Of older people, at least 70%  have one chronic disease.So the most important point of advocacy is for the release of all our elders in COVID prisons. Prisons are becoming a death sentence. Some prisoners have feared to share their symptoms for fear of isolation in barbaric conditions. There is good data to show that releasing our elders is not a significant public safety risk.JJ: Then there is Mumia’s congestive heart failure.RA: Yes, Mumia needs freedom for his congestive heart failure. We don’t fully know what he needs medically inside prison, because we do not yet have all the records. From what we have, it is clear he needs regular monitoring. Congestive heart failure is a serious disease with 50% mortality in five years in the best of circumstances. There is data to show that the physiological age of prisoners averages 10 to 15 years older than their chronological age, which means that their physical bodies literally age faster. It makes sense when you consider the enormously stressful conditions and the constant threat of violence. But it also makes sense when you consider that prisoners are denied physical contact and loving connection. Patients in the general population with congestive heart failure often have to check their weight daily and eat well with low-salt diets. Mumia’s diet will always be limited by the poor quality of prison food that is contracted out to major food service corporations. Those with congestive heart failure may be prone to frequent hospitalizations, due to the delicacy of the heart’s inability to adequately pump blood. But just as prisoners may fear declaring their symptoms of COVID for fear of isolation, so too Mumia and other prisoners may fear declaring symptoms that would lead to hospitalization because of fear of the barbaric “four-point restraint.” [Limbs of a person in a four–point restraint are chained to the four corners of a bed frame, with the person fixed in a spread-eagle position, unable to move.] Prisoners are going to think twice about what threshold they will use to seek medical care when they are denied compassionate conditions of hospitalization.JJ: The liver cirrhosis?RA: Mumia needs freedom for his liver cirrhosis. Again, we do not have the full records to determine if he is getting the highest standard of care to monitor for cancer, which would require ultrasounds every six months and checking for certain markers. We do know that his cirrhosis was caused by the unnecessary delay in treatment that resulted from [inadequate prison] Hep C treatment protocols. That has been proven in the courts. Mumia’s legal case to force the PA DOC to give him treatment consistent with current [medical] guidelines has paved the way for other inmates to get effective but expensive antiviral medications. Just as Mumia may fear hospitalization, so too he may reasonably fear care in the prison infirmary where in 2015 he was repeatedly given courses of steroids for his skin condition, even when there was clear documentation of a grossly elevated blood sugar level. Steroids are known to elevate blood glucose. He eventually needed to be admitted to the ICU in diabetic ketoacidosis as result of this negligence. And yet Mumia is dependent on these facilities for his care.JJ: What about his skin condition?RA: Mumia needs freedom for his severe debilitating skin condition. It makes sense that Mumia’s skin condition is exacerbated in the stressful conditions of imprisonment. Unfortunately, the number of medications and treatments are limited. We already know the dangers of steroids. Mumia has a deep understanding of his own health and makes clear that he believes in natural remedies when possible. Release from prison will not only help his skin condition because he can be in a loving and supportive community with human touch, but also because he will have access to a variety of balms and other healing products that are denied in prison. Only FDA-approved medications or simple emollients such as Eucerin or Vaseline will be administered in prison. If the severity of his skin condition is exacerbated, and hospitalization might be needed, then he must suffer the concern of being chained during his entire hospital stay. What he needs now is assurance that he will not be in four-point restraints when hospitalized and to have access to healing balms from traditional healers consistent with his medicinal beliefs.Please sign the petition demanding Abu-Jamal’s release due to overwhelming evidence of police, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct that has forever destroyed the legitimacy of Abu-Jamal’s 1982 conviction: thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nariman. The Book, a collection of essays by judges, leading international law and arbitration practitioners and academics from various jurisdictions, was released in a virtual event organised by the PCA on 23rd January 2021. It was released by Supreme Court Judges, Justice Rohinton Nariman and Justice DY Chandrachud, Attorney General for India Mr. KK Venugopal, and the Deputy Secretary General of the PCA Mr. Brooks Daly in the presence of Mr. Fali Nariman. The session was moderated by Supreme Court Advocate Manisha Singh. The book has been edited by Senior Advocate Gourab Banerji, Advocate Promod Nair (Arista Chambers), Advocate George Pothan Poothicote (also Legal Consultant, Ministry of External Affairs) and Advocate Ashwita Ambast (Legal Counsel, Permanent Court of Arbitration). The book launch event also included a free-flowing discussion with the moderator, editors and the panellists: Mr. Gourab Banerji began the session by giving a brief overview of the book’s contents and the various authors and also spoke fondly about his interactions with Mr. Nariman. Mr. Brooks Daly described the high pedestal that Mr. Nariman occupies in the international arbitration community. He narrated an incident from an investment treaty arbitration in which Mr. Nariman, as the Presiding Arbitrator deftly handled belligerent parties with great poise and tact. The Attorney General spoke of his long-standing friendship with Mr. Nariman and his family. He described various instances where he had come across Mr. Nariman on the professional front and described Mr. Nariman’s unique ability to paint a picture with words— terming it the ‘Bombay Magic’. Justice Chandrachud recalled meeting Mr. Nariman for the first time as a kid and spoke at length of Nariman’s contributions in shaping Indian law as an ardent defender of constitutional liberties (making particular references to the ­Indian Express v. Union of India 1986 AIR 515 judgment and the Bijoe Emmanuel v. State of Kerala 1986 SCR (3) 518). He also highlighted the common-sense approach to commercial arbitration that Mr. Nariman espoused and concluded by declaring that Mr. Nariman truly is a ‘living legend of the bar’. Justice RF Nariman delivered brief remarks in honour of his father. Mr. Nariman began his speech by remarking that he envied the PCA for not only being older than him, but unlike him PCA is getting stronger with age – like good wine! He stated that he was touched by the ‘preposterous’ idea of having book of essays in his honour. He ended his speech by expressing his gratitude for everyone who had helped put together the event. Ms. Ashwita Ambast, on behalf of the editorial team thanked all the contributors and briefly spoke about the book and the articles in the book. Mr. George Pothan engaged in a discussion with Mr. Nariman on the lessons learnt and the way forward in investment treaty arbitration. Here, Mr. Nariman spoke of the need for a change in the way Investor Treaty Arbitrations are handled by India especially noting that systemic delays in the judiciary adversely affected India’s position before Investment Treaty Arbitration tribunals. Mr. George Pothan then asked Mr. Nariman if he could share with the audience regarding the various personal conversations they had about ways of improving investment treaty arbitration and bringing about more accountability among the arbitrators. To this Mr. Nariman said that it is important that each arbitrator in an investment treaty arbitration should give his reasons for the award and not just concur with the award as the hard task is reasoning the awards. He also said that there is a need to have a Permanent World Investment Court which would maintain records and bring more consistency and accountability to the process. Inter alia, the audience who shared anecdotes and asked questions to Mr. Nariman included Mr. Salman Khurshid, Mrs. Cherie Blair, Mr. Siddharth Luthra among others. Mr. Promod, while delivering the closing remarks, spoke of the genesis of the idea of the festschrift, and remarked that Mr. Nariman is truly a national treasure.

Balliol students launch petition to bar PM from college premises

first_imgBalliol students today launched a petition to disavow the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, an alumnus of the college. One of the authors of the petition, Balliol student Andrew MacGowan, told Cherwell: “Nobody voted for the no-deal policy Boris is attempting to force through with his October 31st deadline, and he hasn’t offered any concrete evidence of progress in Brussels. The leak of Operation Yellowhammer details the economic devastation that would result from a no-deal Brexit.” “Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a former student of Balliol College, Oxford. With his parliamentary shutdown, effectively a political coup, Johnson has seriously undermined democracy in the United Kingdom. Despite the far-reaching and devastating implications of a no-deal Brexit for many of its students and members of staff, Balliol College has yet to condemn his actions. “With this petition, we hope to show the College that many of its members are appalled by these actions, and to call upon it to publicly disavow Boris Johnson insofar as: “3) His alumni status and any benefits that that may entail should be suspended with immediate effect. The full petition is given below: At the time of writing, the petition has 138 signatures.
