whatsapp KCS-content Pending sales of previously owned US homes rebounded unexpectedly in July and new claims for jobless benefits fell last week, helping dampen fears the economy could face a double dip recession.The data yesterday, including sturdy sales from US retailers last month, followed a report on Wednesday showing a surprising gain in manufacturing activity and suggested the economy retained some underlying strength.Investors appeared to agree earlier fears of a double-dip recession might have been overdone as they sold long-dated US government bonds and bought some stocks. The National Association of Realtors’ Pending Home Sales Index, based on contracts signed, rose 5.2 per cent in July from a month earlier. Analysts had expected the index, which leads actual sales by a month or two, to fall one per cent.Home sales have dropped sharply since a popular tax credit for home buyers ended in April and the surprise gain in pending sales raised hopes the sector could soon stabilise.A separate report from the Labor Department showed initial claims for state unemployment benefits dropped for a second straight week last week, slipping 6,000 to 472,000.

Tags: Online Gambling Email Address 2nd March 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: Europe Southern Europe Serbia Serbia’s Minister of Finance, Siniša Mali, has introduced a new bill, to replace the 2011 Gambling Act, in the country’s National Assembly. Serbia aims to raise online taxes, expand casino gaming Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Serbia’s Minister of Finance, Siniša Mali, has introduced a new bill, to replace the 2011 Gambling Act, in the country’s National Assembly.The regulations in the new bill include increasing Serbia’s tax rate for online gambling, from 5% of gross revenue for all verticals, to 15% for online betting and 10% for other games.In a response to public input on a draft of the bill, the Ministry of Finance said that the higher rate for betting was due to the fact that 75% of turnover from betting in Serbia comes from online bets, while only 25% of turnover in other games is online.However, the bill also allows for a greatly increased number of land-based casino licences. Currently, only two licenced casinos exist in Serbia. However, Mali’s bill allows the government to grant a maximum of 10 such licenses, valid for 10 years. The license fee for these casinos is set at a minimum of €500,000.The bill would also introduce restrictions on the locations of slot machines and bookmakers. These may not be within 200 metres, by the shortest safe pedestrian path, from educational institutions, or within 100 metres from one another. This regulation does not apply to existing sites, but only to new sites that will be approved after the new law comes into effect.“We are witnessing breaches of the rules and the fact is that children are betting and giving money to adults to pay for them to bet,” Danica Bukvic of the Socialist Party of Serbia said in a debate when the bill was introduced in the National Assembly. “Therefore, strict controls are necessary to prevent all this.”In addition, the bill would establish an electronic surveillance system, intended to identify illegal gambling websites so that these may be shut down by the Serbian Gambling Authority.Gabling advertisements must be accompanied by a reminder that minors may not gamble and an addiction prevention warning, while all employees of gambling operators who have direct contact with gamblers must receive specific gambling addiction prevention training.The Red Cross of Serbia will continue to receive 40% of government revenue collected from gambling. An earlier draft of the law removed this provision, but it was returned to the bill via an amendment.

Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here By Faith Kearns, Academic Coordinator, California Institute for Water Resources, University of California, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Max Moritz, Cooperative Extension Wildfire Specialist at the University of California Forest Research and Outreach; Adjunct Professor Bren School of Environmental Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara.Editor’s Note: This article first published on theconversation.com.It doesn’t take long in California to develop a feel for “fire weather.” When it’s hot and dry and the winds blow a certain way, there can be no doubt that, as in the past, landscapes will continue to be forged in fire.And so, we residents of the state find ourselves again facing late fall wildfires that have scorched drought-parched vegetation while the rainy season evades its highly anticipated start. As the death toll and structure loss from fires burning in the northern and southern parts of the state continue to surpass records set not even a year ago, it is crucial to understand the role winds play in California fires.Predictable but future unclearAcross California, late fall winds – called by various names including Santa Anas, Diablos and sundowners – blow hot, dry air from the interior of the state out toward the coasts. The winds often intensify as they are channeled through mountain passes and then blasted across dry vegetation and steep surfaces to create the perfect conditions for fire. Given an ignition, those same winds then help to spread fire very quickly.Surface pressure patterns during early hours of the Camp Fire reveal the conditions that drove fire through Paradise, California. The closely spaced isobars represent the steepest pressure gradients – and strongest winds – which become warmer and drier as they decrease in elevation, moving from mountains toward the ocean. In this case, the same pressure pattern was also causing wind-driven fires in Southern California. NOAA, CC BY-NCWhile these winds are in many ways predictable, they are also altering fire hazard in ways that researchers don’t fully understand. As the climate changes, bringing warmer temperatures and increasingly erratic precipitation patterns, more of these extreme wind events may occur during times that are highly conducive to fire.It is also conceivable that climate change will cause shifts in the pressure patterns that spawn extreme wind events, to begin with. Therefore, it is possible that in the future we may see extreme winds in new regions or during unexpected times of the year. A deeper understanding of the controls on these events is emerging, but relatively little is known about what the future will hold.Wind and fire riskFire hazard is determined by a variety of factors that include vegetation, topography, and weather. Add people and homes, and you get fire risk. While wind is one of the biggest factors in fire spread, it also generates flying embers far ahead of the fire itself.It is this storm of burning embers that often shower neighborhoods and ignite homes after finding vulnerable parts of landscaping and structures. Under the worst circumstances, wind-driven home-to-home fire spread then occurs, causing risky, fast-moving “urban conflagrations” that can be almost impossible to stop and extremely dangerous to evacuate.Dry, northeasterly winds come in the fall and the winter, often through mountain ranges, which fuels wildfires in Southern California – a different pattern than summertime fires. NASA, CC BYManaging the type and amount of vegetation, or “fuel,” in an area provides a set of tools for altering fire behavior in wildland fires. But during wind-driven urban conflagrations, homes are usually a major – if not the main – source of fuel.Although defensible space immediately around homes is certainly important, vegetation management cannot be the sole solution. Fire-prone communities must also intensify urban and evacuation planning efforts that make the built environment and those living there less vulnerable to fires and the extreme winds that drive them.Looking aheadThe most recent fires in California are sounding alarm bells that simply cannot be ignored, lest we fall into the trap of normalizing the incredible loss of lives and devastated communities year after year. Indeed, fire has become a critical public health and safety issue in this state.As residents and researchers who have worked extensively on fire in California, we believe the state and its newly elected leadership face a formidable challenge and an opportunity to reinvest in a robust, interdisciplinary approach to wildfire risk reduction that combines the best of both research and practice. It must integrate both new (and potentially controversial) urban planning reforms as well as novel thinking about evacuation alternatives.As it stands, California is failing to keep up with what we know about fire hazard and risk, and losing time as we struggle against rapidly changing climate conditions. Simply put: There is no time to waste.

Krauss was then taken to Jinja Road police station, where he is still held.“Abducting Krauss while he was filming police violence was a flagrant violation of freedom of information,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the authorities to release him unconditionally at once and to explain why he has been held for so long. “Even if he is eventually expelled for administrative reasons, there are no grounds for holding him this long. This has all the hallmarks of a reprisal.”Reporters Without Borders has been told that the authorities have had Krauss in their sights since well before 23 July because of his supposed support for Kizza Besigye.Witnesses said Krauss was filming the police using force to disperse a crowd gathered around Kizza Besigye on Kampala Road. One of the policemen was heard say to his colleagues: “We have to deal with him.” The police then arrested both Krauss and Kizza Besigye, who was freed after being questioned for eight hours at the police station.The interior ministry yesterday ordered that Krauss, who has been in Uganda for about two weeks, should be deported. Interior ministry spokesman Benjamin Kagiremire said he had violated the conditions of his tourist visa, which bans him from working in Uganda. “An order has been issued that the American should be removed from the country immediately,” Kagiremire said.Krauss’ wife, Moriah Brier, told Reporters Without Borders: “Taylor has travelled throughout east Africa for many years and is devoted to the region. He is in Uganda for his own personal interest and has done nothing wrong. The story that’s being told is that he is being expelled, but the reality is that he is being imprisoned. I just want him home, safe and sound.”Krauss was arrested the same day that Gen. Aronda Nyakairima took office as interior minister. Speaking at his installation, Gen. Nyakairima praised the work of his predecessor, who cracked down on two privately-owned newspapers, The Daily Monitor and Red Pepper, in May. “I will be checking on them (…) because Red Pepper again is going back to the old business,” Human Rights Network for Journalists – Uganda quoted him as saying. Uganda is ranked 104th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. More information about freedom of information in Uganda.
