first_img24th January 2019 | By contenteditor DraftKings expands into live casino with Evolution Tags: Online Gambling Email Address DraftKings has widened its igaming offering in New Jersey after agreeing a deal with Evolution Gaming to launch a live dealer gaming offering. DraftKings is to expand its New Jersey igaming offering with the addition of live casino services from Evolution Gaming.Evolution will provide content to DraftKings from its new US live casino studio, which opened in Atlantic City in August 2018, through the agreement.Traditionally a fantasy sports operator, DraftKings has expanded into new verticals over the past year, establishing itself as a leading sports betting brand in New Jersey.Last month, DraftKings ranked second behind rival FanDuel in the state’s sports betting market, reporting revenue of $6.7m (£5.1m/€5.9m).James Stern, chief business officer for the Americas and land-based market at Evolution, said the supplier is looking forward to helping DraftKings expand its services.“DraftKings is a young and dynamic company that has blazed a trail in recent years with its best-in-class technology and extensive knowledge of sports,” he said.“DraftKings was first to market in New Jersey with online sports betting, just a couple of months after filing for its licence with the New Jersey regulators,” Stern said. “We very much look forward to working with DraftKings on this project.”Evolution is also working with a number of other operators in New Jersey as it seeks to take advantage of the growing market.Last month, the supplier expanded an existing deal with Unibet to provide the Kindred Group brand with its live casino services in the state.

Who should Eddie Jones pick for England this summer?

first_imgCapon and Oghre are the other selections – and are only 21 and 23 years old respectively. Capon has been a model of consistency for Bristol – while Barbeary’s clubmate Oghre has managed to win minutes against the most stacked hooker depth chart in the league. Dynamic in the loose with rare athletic ability for the position, his throwing will need to keep improving.Locks – Charlie Ewels (Bath), Nick Isiekwe (Northampton/Saracens), Chunya Munga (London Irish), David Ribbans (Northampton) Eddie Jones considers Ewels to possess leadership potential – and he is a real candidate to captain the side this summer. It will be interesting to see how he copes with being the senior member of a second-row partnership for the first time at Test level.If you were to draw an international second-row you’d alight on the shape of Ribbans – exceptionally durable, a massive unit, and one of the best pick-and-drive forwards in the league. He’s already been selected in wider England squads, and at 25 has time before the next World Cup to become the carrying lock Jones is looking to pack down alongside Maro Itoje. Harlequins fly-half Marcus Smith has only played for England in a non-capped match against the Barbarians in 2019 (RFU/Getty Images) Who should Eddie Jones pick for England this summer? This summer is the perfect chance for Eddie Jones to bring a raft of new faces into the England set-up. With 11 players in the British & Irish Lions squad, Tests against Canada and the United States will give fringe players the chance to assert themselves ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.The equivalent tour to Argentina in 2017 was an unmitigated success. England not only won two Tests against a full-strength Pumas side, but also unearthed players who are now integral to the team, such as Tom Curry and Sam Underhill. Can’t get to the shops?

It’ll be fascinating to see if Vunipola is selected this summer. While the temptation to rest him and other senior players is there, the Saracens No 8 has spoken about how playing games improves his physical condition. There will be plenty of opportunities to get him running downhill. Who should Eddie Jones pick for England this summer?Here’s a proposed 32-man England squad for the Tests at Twickenham against USA on 4 July and Canada on 10 July…Props – Ellis Genge (Leicester), Beno Obano (Bath), Bevan Rodd (Sale), Kyle Sinckler (Bristol), Marcus Street (Exeter), Will Stuart (Bath)At loosehead, Genge and Obano (before his ban) have enjoyed an excellent few months in the Gallagher Premiership. Sale’s Rodd isn’t a household name yet – but forwards coach Matt Proudfoot has attended Sale training to meet the 20-year-old loosehead, who is also eligible for Scotland.Sale’s Bevan Rodd is eligible for both England and Scotland (Getty Images)Sinckler and Stuart are England’s first-choice tightheads, so it seems worth having a youngster to learn from them. This means Exeter’s Harry Williams misses out in favour of 22-year-old clubmate Street, who really does have superstar potential. Leicester’s Joe Heyes is also in contention.Hookers – Will Capon (Bristol), Tom Dunn (Bath), Gabriel Oghre (Wasps) Alfie Barbeary would be in this group, but after a torrid season with injuries there is no sense in rushing him into a summer series. His time will come.Instead, Dunn deserves a run in the starting jersey. The emotional centrepiece of the Bath pack, he’s been unlucky to play so few minutes in his three England appearances so far. Recently banned after receiving a red card against Bristol, he should return for England raring to go. The other two spots are wide open and could include Northampton’s Alex Moon or Leicester tyro George Martin. But it’s time that Moon’s (temporary) clubmate Isiekwe got another taste of international rugby.He toured Argentina just after his 19th birthday and the future seemed bright, before he was harshly substituted off in the first half against South Africa the next summer. He’s been Northampton’s best forward since joining on loan from Saracens, is still only 23 years old and has an exceptional work-rate for a lock/six hybrid.Another youngster, Munga, is starting in the Premiership at only 20 for an underrated London Irish pack. Picked out as a future star by Alex Corbisiero and a key performer in the England age groups, he too should come into camp early.Back-rows – Ben Curry (Sale), Alex Dombrandt (Harlequins), Ben Earl (Bristol/Saracens), Ted Hill (Worcester), Sam Underhill (Bath), Billy Vunipola (Saracens)An extremely competitive area. Earl and Underhill are slam-dunk picks, with Underhill’s recovery from a hip injury edging out clubmate Miles Reid. Will Evans could have been involved before his untimely leg break.Hill and Curry have both been involved previously with England – Hill even picked up a cap against Japan in 2018. They have captaincy experience, are only 22, and hit like freight trains. With Tests against the USA and Canada on the horizon, younger players will be looking to force their way into the reckoning LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight points on the day Man-of-the-match That was some performance from Marcus Smith. #HARvWAS pic.twitter.com/ROBk9PC5H1— Planet Rugby (@PlanetRugby) May 9, 2021It’s tough on Simmonds, but Umaga’s versatility and instinct gets him the nod for the second spot. He’s impressively bounced back in recent months from a bout of sophomore struggles to return to his creative best, while also developing a quietly effective tactical kicking game.Centres – Ollie Lawrence (Worcester), Joe Marchant (Harlequins), Piers O’Conor (Bristol), Henry Slade (Exeter)The most difficult position to select, with so many different styles competing for a single berth. Lawrence and Slade are the obvious selections, given another chance to develop a centre partnership that has promise on paper but failed to fire in the Six Nations.Pairing Marcus Smith with clubmate Marchant could bring the best out of both, but it does mean that Wasps’ Paolo Odogwu misses out.Piers O’Conor is one of the best line-running backs in the Premiership (CameraSport/Getty Images)The final slot comes down to Sam James of Sale versus Piers O’Conor of Bristol – incredibly versatile ball-players capable of being a second playmaker or making clean breaks themselves. There is something irresistible about O’Conor’s decision-making in broken field, so he gets the nod on this occasion. Could also be used at full-back.Back three – Ollie Hassell-Collins (London Irish), Max Malins (Bristol/Saracens), Jonny May (Gloucester), Freddie Steward (Leicester), Ollie Thorley (Gloucester)There might be a temptation to rest May, but you sense the wing will be desperate to retain match sharpness in case the Lions come calling. Thorley deserves a second cap, while the third winger spot goes to namesake Hassell-Collins, who has been the crown jewel in an adventurous and youthful London Irish back-line.Hassell-Collins has made 33 clean breaks so far this season, almost ten clear of his closest competitor, and has the chance to finish the season with more than 1,000 metres with ball in hand. Possesses prototypical size for an international winger and is still only 22 years old.A third Ollie, Northampton’s Sleightholme, should also be considered – a real sprinter with a poacher’s instinct to match. Joe Cokanasiga and Jack Nowell miss out due to questions over injury and form. Freddie Steward in the air Nemani Nadolo’s pass Harry Wells with the finish A fantastic try scored by @LeicesterTigers The hosts are tied with @BathRugby, but who will win? Live Blog https://t.co/ENiA4e3FUZ#GallagherPrem #LEIvBATpic.twitter.com/BcEzK9nLPP— Premiership Rugby (@premrugby) January 3, 2021Malins is a certainty to be selected at full-back, having displaced Elliot Daly during the Six Nations, but the second slot is extremely open. Jones may well persist with the George Furbank experiment, but a better option would be Leicester’s Steward, who competes with a physicality, maturity and fearlessness beyond his years. If you need an Englishman to take a high ball for your life, Steward is the man. Plays like David Havili.Possible England Summer Test Starting XV: Malins; May, Slade, Lawrence, Thorley; Smith, Robson; Genge, Dunn, Sinckler, Ewels, Ribbans, Earl, Underhill, Vunipola. Vunipola’s skill-set also complements Dombrandt, who deserves a cap as part of the best 8-9-10 axis in the Gallagher Premiership. An X-factor player in attack, his off-ball work-rate has been questioned in the past, but along with his conditioning is improving rapidly.Scrum-halves – Dan Robson (Wasps), Alex Mitchell (Northampton) There isn’t a player more deserving of international minutes than Robson, who is poised to make his first start this summer after 11 substitute appearances. Simply exceptional against Harlequins in May.Behind him is a straight shootout between Northampton’s Mitchell, Exeter’s Jack Maunder, and Bristol pair Harry Randall and Andy Uren. Randall looked to be the favourite after being named in England’s Six Nations squad, but an ankle injury has left him without any significant minutes since January.Northampton scrum-half Alex Mitchell is ready for international rugby (Getty Images)Mitchell has enjoyed his longest run of form for Northampton, and after spending so long in camp merits game-time. Probably the nine with the best combination of run-kick-pass skills.Ben Youngs ruled himself out of Lions contention to spend time with his family, so it’s unlikely he’ll play for England this summer.Fly-halves – Marcus Smith (Harlequins), Jacob Umaga (Wasps)Time to see what the young guns can do. If George Ford is rested, it’s a choice between Smith, Umaga, and Joe Simmonds.Smith has been exceptional for Quins, who are reaping the rewards of allowing the academy product to run their attack at such an early age. He needs minutes to prove he can do the same at international level – the USA and Canada will be a gentle introduction.last_img read more

Germany: Landmark ruling against the BND

first_img News to go further December 27, 2017 Germany: Landmark ruling against the BND The German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in Berlin / AFP GermanyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsProtecting sources RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts “The ruling shows that it is worthwhile for human rights organisations to go to court to defend themselves against the mass storage of data by the BND. Thanks to this ruling other individuals and organisations with the same complaint can now stand up to the BND” said RSF Germany’s executive director Christian Mihr. The ruling is a historic success for Reporters Without Borders because we have succeeded in setting boundaries on the BND’s activities. At the same time it strengthens our own activities because persecuted journalists from authoritarian states like Uzbekistan or China need to be able to rely on their communications with us remaining confidential.” RSF Germany had lodged a complaint against the BND with the Federal Administrative Court, the court of first and last instance for this case, on 30 June 2015. The lawyer Niko Härting represents RSF Germany in the proceedings. The complaint is directed among other things against the VerAS system with which the BND has also been gathering the communications metadata of German citizens since 2002 – without any legal basis.The entire “Foreign-Foreign Signals” communication as well as conversations between persons in Germany and abroad and call detail records that were supplied to the BND by friendly intelligence services are affected by these surveillance measures. The storage operation is so comprehensive that it can also include journalists who are only indirectly connected via several other communication partners with, for instance, a terrorist suspect.In a hearing that took place in December 2016, RSF Germany had already scored a partial victory when the Federal Administrative Court ordered the BND to provide clarification about its metadata gathering. At the hearing, the BND’s representatives were forced to admit that the VerAS system can be used to analyse every node in a contact network – in principle “even to the 14th level”.In another section of the lawsuit RSF Germany accused the intelligence agency of spying on its email traffic with foreign partners, journalists and other persons through its signals intelligence surveillance. In December 2016, the court ruled that this part of the lawsuit was inadmissible. In April 2017, the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe refused to admit for examination RSF Germany’s constitutional complaint against this decision on the grounds that RSF had not adequately demonstrated that the organization was directly affected by the BND’s surveillance.For this reason at the beginning of December RSF Germany lodged a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) over the mass surveillance practices of the BND. Germany currently ranks 16th out of the 180 countries on the World Press Freedom Index.

Journalist murdered on eve of World Press Freedom Day, fifth this year in Somalia

Two unidentified individuals shot him several times in the street as he was returning to his home in the village of Garsor.“We had just issued a statement for World Press Freedom Day condemning the fact that 21 news providers had been killed worldwide since the start of the year and now this new tragedy has confirmed our analysis that journalists are being attacked and murdered at an astonishing pace,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Abdulle is the fifth journalist to be killed this year in Somalia, the deadliest country in Africa for the media. We urge the local authorities to find his murderers and to combat impunity for violence against journalists.”As Reporters Without Borders said in its World Press Freedom Day release, news providers have been killed at the rate of one every five days since the start of 2012.Aged 27, Abdulle had worked for Galkayo-based Radio Daljir as a reporter, producer and presenter ever since its launch seven years ago. He was also a well-known campaigner for journalists’ safety as a member of the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), a Reporters Without Borders partner organization.His murder comes just two months after another journalist, Ali Ahmed Abdi, was killed in similar circumstances in Galkayo.More information on the first four journalists murdered in Somali in 2012Photo: Farhan James AbdullePhotos: Farhan James Abdulle’s burial, on may 3th 2012 RSF_en Receive email alerts Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somaliacenter_img to go further Follow the news on Somalia May 3, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist murdered on eve of World Press Freedom Day, fifth this year in Somalia RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News SomaliaAfrica Organisation RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
