That represents an increase from 82%, when the data was last compiled in 2017, and places it ahead of consumer protection on 86% (90% in 2017) at the top of the list.Fewer authorities are dealing directly with gambling addiction compared to two years ago, with the number falling from 59% to 54%. Those dealing with match-fixing has risen considerably from 38% to 45%.Other key insights from the report, based on data provided by 44 jurisdictions, include that number-based games like lotto are the most common form of gambling, followed by casinos, then betting.Tackling gambling-related crime is a key duty for all regulators, with the top five areas of concern reported as illegal gambling, money-laundering, cheating, match-fixing/spot fixing and underage gambling.The report also shows that around two thirds of respondents have mandatory contributions from market operators in place for responsible gambling programmes.Looking ahead, the most pressing challenge reported by regulators is regulatory developments in other jurisdictions. Examples of this are the liberalisation of a gambling market or the legalisation of online gambling in a neighbouring jurisdiction.Betting on eSports and social gaming (with real money prizes) were the top-rated trends in 2017, and are joint third place this year.IAGR president Paul Newson said the results highlight common issues and challenges as well as some differences in the policy settings and focus of regulators.“This is a tremendous tool to promote greater information sharing and collaboration around policy development and industry supervision where we exercise similar functions and confront common issues and challenges,” he said.“Through increased collaboration across jurisdictions we can advance efficient and effective gambling regulation and inform a collective focus and priority where the risks are greatest.”Regulatory bodies in Europe, Africa, Australasia and North and South America participated in the survey.

SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Couples Finish in Top Ten of Young Farmer Contests By Andy Eubank – Jan 17, 2013 There was no drive home to Indiana in a brand new pickup for the two Hoosier couples participating this week in American Farm Bureau’s Young Farmer and Rancher contests. John and Marybeth Feutz of Gibson County, competing in Excellence in Ag, and Orville and Jessica Haney of Kosciusko County competing for the Achievement Award made the top ten but that was the end of the road.Haney says just winning Indiana was a huge accomplishment.“It was one of the biggest honors of our lives. We’re just really happy to be here and then to be named top 10 in the nation was a big surprise.”John Feutz said “We’re just thrilled to be involved. It’s been a great experience and we’re glad to be top 10 in the country and that’s saying a lot when figure how big Farm Bureau is nationwide. So to be in the top 10 is great.”John and Marybeth Feutz 2nd and 3rd from rightHis wife Marybeth credited strong Indiana support for their success at getting to the top ten.“We had a packed house for our presentation and it was so wonderful to see so many smiling, friendly faces that were there to support us.”She says the support at the public presentation makes a difference.“Absolutely. With our theatre background we absolutely love playing to a full house. There’s so much positive energy and we really can feed back on that positive energy and channel that back into our presentation.”Young farmers will take a lot from the competition experience, and Orville and Jessica told HAT it starts right at the application process.“The application itself is 15-page odyssey of your goals and dreams and aspirations, and it’s a very nice outline of where you started and where you’re at now and where you want to go in the future. Just the practice of filling that thing out, they’re going to benefit from that.”Jessica agreed, telling HAT, “Hands down the application should be the thing that you enjoy most, getting your farm history down, writing your goals, brainstorming where are we going with this, where have we been. Seeing it all on paper is just so fulfilling.”[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/01/2013-YFandR-top-tens-from-Indiana.mp3|titles=2013 YFandR top tens from Indiana]Congratulations to both couples.

This direction has been now modified to read thus (modified portion in bold letters):The State Government is directed to ensure that no loudspeaker or public address system shall be used by any person including religious bodies in Temples, Mosques and Gurudwaras without written permission of the authority even during day time, that too, by getting an undertaking that the noise level shall not exceed by more than 5dB(A) peripheral noise level above the ambient noise standards specified for the area in which it is used at the boundaries of the private place”. The Court made this modification while considering an application filed under Sections 151 and 152 CPC read with Article 226 of the Constitution of India by a representative of all mutawallies of Waqfs of all mosques in the entire State of Uttarakhand.Referring to the relevant provisions of Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000 and the judgment, the bench comprising the Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice Lok Pal Singh observed:”The Division Bench could not have intended that the noise level in a public place should not exceed 5dB(A), since what has been stipulated, both in the 2000 Rules and in the judgment of the Supreme Court, in Forum, Prevention of Environment & Sound Pollution, is that the peripheral noise level should not exceed 10dB(A)/5dB(A) above the ambient noise standards for the area (as prescribed in the schedule). The prescription, in Para ‘i’ of the order of the Division Bench, that the noise level should not exceed more than 5dB(A) is not to be found in any of the earlier parts of the said order of the Division Bench, or in the judgments of the Supreme Court referred to therein or in the 2000 Regulations which was relied upon by the Division Bench. It is evident, therefore, that the last words of Paragraph ‘i’ that “the noise level should not exceed more than 5dB(A) peripheral noise level” is an accidental error not intended by the Division Bench” The Court also observed that the mere fact that an order was issued by the State Government, in compliance with the earlier order of the Division Bench, would not disable it from exercising its inherent powers under Section 152 CPC to correct an accidental error or omission in the order of the Division Bench provided, of course, it is satisfied that there has been an accidental slip or mistake in the order necessitating its correction.The judgment also discusses the principles to be applied while considering an application under Section 152 CPC. It said:There are two important principles on the basis of which Section 152 CPC has been enacted. The first, as noted above, is the maxim that an act of the Court shall prejudice no man. The other is that the Court has a duty to ensure that its records are true, and they represent the correct state of affairs. It is because these are considered to be some of the highest duties of Courts that, in Section 152 C.P.C, it has been provided that, even in the absence of any move on the part of the parties, the Court can, of its own motion, make the correction.However, the bench refused to answer the issues whether the applicant can claim a fundamental right for loudspeakers to be used at Mosques and whether the recent order of the Allahabad High Court covers the field, and the validity or otherwise of the Government Order issued in compliance with the earlier order of the Division Bench, holding that these are all matters which are extraneous to proceedings under Section 152 CPC.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

ExxonMobil’s Baton Rouge Refinery in Louisiana. (Credit: WClarke/Wikipedia.org) Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards revealed that oil and gas major ExxonMobil is mulling to invest over $240m at its Baton Rouge Refinery in the US state.The investment is planned to be used by the company for boosting the processing capability of the refinery, enhance flexibility for coping up with market demand, and advance overall competitiveness of the site.As part of the suite of projects, ExxonMobil also plans to install technology at the Baton Rouge Refinery for reducing its volatile organic compound emissions by 10%, said the Louisiana Governor.The planned projects are subject to final engineering, design and investment decisions with a decision to proceed to be made by the company next year.Governor Edwards said that the proposed projects at the oil refinery will retain 1,300 existing roles, while supporting over 600 construction jobs on-site over a period of three years.ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Refinery plant manager Gloria Moncada said: “This suite of projects positions our site for future investment at our refinery and chemical plants in Baton Rouge. We look forward to working with Gov. Edwards and our local community stakeholders in partnership as we move toward a final decision.”Commissioned in 1909, the Baton Rouge oil refinery is an integrated refining and petrochemical complex that produces fuels, lubricants, and wax products for customers across the world.The petrochemical complex features a refinery, plastics plant, resins plant, chemical plant, polyolefins plant, and Port Allen lubricants plant. The facilities have a combined annual production of over 3.6 billion gallons of gasoline along with billions of pounds of petrochemical products.Last year, ExxonMobil began construction on a new polypropylene plant at the petrochemical complex with an investment of over $500m. The project, which is expected to be commissioned in 2021, will double the capacity of the Baton Rouge Polyolefins Plant.Governor Edwards said: “ExxonMobil has operated in Baton Rouge for more than 110 years and has provided high-quality jobs for decades at the integrated refinery and chemical plant complex.“The 2019 announcement of the company’s decision to progress the Baton Rouge polypropylene project, combined with this potential investment, demonstrates that ExxonMobil has confidence in the future of Louisiana and in our outstanding workforce. Louisiana looks forward to working with ExxonMobil to make this investment happen.” The US oil and gas firm is planning to implement a suite of projects at the oil refinery with a decision to proceed to be taken in 2021
Press release: Environmental charities receive over £2.2 million from businesses which broke environmental laws
United Utilities Water Limited – £232,000 benefitting Mersey Rivers Trust (£90,000) and Community Forest Trust (£142,000) for discharging sewage into a brook Obviously, we would have been happier if these incidents hadn’t occurred at all. However, it’s a good principle that polluters should offer redress for the damage they cause. The money will enable work which will benefit wildlife and wild places, and which otherwise wouldn’t be funded. We hope these payments serve as a reminder to business of its responsibility towards a clean and healthy environment; and also have a deterrent effect as it’s clearly cheaper to do things cleanly, rather than risk creating pollution. Yorkshire Water Services Limited – £200,000 benefitting Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for polluting a river. Ellie Brodie, Senior Policy Manager, The Wildlife Trusts said: Angel Springs Holdings Limited – £24,329 benefitting Marine Conservation Society for not taking reasonable steps to recover and recycle packaging waste. Companies and individuals will make the payments for environmental offences including pollution of rivers or the sea, not meeting permit conditions or not taking reasonable steps to recover packaging waste.A total of 15 charities and projects will benefit from the £2,223,121.54 with the money to be spent by local groups on projects that benefit the environment including cleaning up and enhancing parks, rivers and beaches.The latest list includes the Environment Agency’s largest ever financial contribution of £975,000 offered by Wessex Water Services Limited for an environmental offence involving sewage spills at Swanage in Dorset. The funds will benefit Dorset Waste Partnership (£400,000), Dorset Litter Free Coast and Sea Project (£100,000), Purbeck District Council/Swanage Town Council (£400,000) and Durlston Country Park and Nature Reserve (£75,000).There are another 14 Enforcement Undertakings with payments ranging from £5,000 – £232,000, including: Carlsberg Supply Company UK Limited – £120,000 benefitting the Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, and Northamptonshire (£80,000) and River Nene Regional Park Community Interest Company (£40,000) for polluting a river. When companies damage the environment whether it is through polluting our waters or breaching permit conditions, we will take enforcement action against them including civil sanctions. We take these environmental incidents very seriously and these payments of more than £2.2 million direct to charities will help them carry out vital projects to improve our environment right across England. Tesco Distribution Limited – £100,000 benefitting Yorkshire Wildlife Trust for discharging diesel into a watercourse and ponds. Northumbrian Water Limited – £135,000 benefitting Durham Wildlife Trust (£45,000), Wear Rivers Trust (£45,000), Marine Conservation Society (£45,000) for polluting a stream. As well as making a payment to an appropriate charity or project, these companies have accepted liability, demonstrated restoration of harm and will make improvements to avoid future offences.Peter Kellett Director of Legal Services from the Environment Agency said: Companies or members of the public are urged report pollution to the Environment Agency’s 24/7 hotline on 0800 80 70 60. Environment Agency officers respond to limit damage to the environment and protect people and wildlife.The Environment Agency is increasingly using enforcement undertakings for suitable cases to restore or enhance the environment, improve practices of the offending business and ensure future compliance with environmental requirements. However prosecutions will still be taken, particularly in the most serious cases.The full list of Enforcement Undertakings is now available.
