Poland sees decline in offshore market share

first_imgLegal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 12th March 2020 | By contenteditor Poland sees decline in offshore market share Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Polish Ministry of Finance has revealed that the market share for so-called ‘grey’ operators fell to 18.5% in 2019, below the average across the European Union (EU). Tags: Online Gambling The Polish Ministry of Finance has revealed that the market share for so-called ‘grey’ operators fell to 18.5% in 2019, below the average across the European Union (EU).Based on data from industry analysts H2 Gambling Capital, the current EU average for grey operators stood at 26.5% in 2019. H2 based these findings on the average net revenue of such operators across EU countries.Poland classifies grey operators as those that are located outside of a country but offer online gambling to players inside the regulated jurisdiction, without regulatory approval.The 2019 figure for Poland is down from 29.1% in 2018, 39.4% in 2017 – when the country’s Gambling Act was amended – and a significant decline on 2016’s grey market share of 79.4%.Grey market share also fell year-on-year during the same period in the EU, with the average dropping from 40.5% in 2016 to 33.5% in 2017 and then 31.0% in 2018.However, H2 said the EU results do not include the unregulated Luxembourg market, nor the UK, Ireland or Malta, as they all allow operators to offer igaming without a local licence.In terms of specific market areas in Poland, grey operators accounted for 8.8% of the country’s online sports betting market in 2019, compared to the EU average of 25.2%.Meanwhile, grey operators were responsible for 55.3% of revenue in the Polish online casino market, down from 98.2% in 2018 and 100.0% in both 2017 and 2016. The EU average for 2019 stood at 45.2% for the casino sector last year.Analysing the H2 report, the Ministry of Finance said the findings are evidence that the legal framework in Poland is working. Current measures in place include the abiltiy to request that internet service providers block access to the offshore operators.The new report comes after a figures released by legal association Graj Legalnie in January showed that regulated bookmakers in Poland generated combined turnover of PLN6.7bn (£1.36bn/€1.54bn/$1.71bn) in 2019, a 28.8% year-on-year increase but less than the unlicensed market.Graj Legalnie suggested increased activity from unlicensed operators has meant that they grey market now makes up almost 60% of the overall Polish gaming market.This came after a Polish Supreme Audit Office last September found that while the regulated gambling industry had grown rapidly following amendments to the country’s Gambling Act in 2017, it is still dwarfed by the illegal market.

UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom  From the Orange County Government website:Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs delivered the 2016 State of the County address at the Hyatt Regency Orlando last Friday.With more than 750 in attendance,  among them Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, Apopka City Commissioner Diane Velazquez and Orange County Commissioner and Vice Mayor Bryan Nelson. It was learned by The Apopka Voice that Apopka City Staff are preparing a report for Kilsheimer to deliver on The State of the City, although a date has not been set. Jacobs provided guests with an overview of Orange County’s  economy,  job growth,  County finances and  plans for Orange County’s quality of life.HIGHLIGHTS AND ACHIEVEMENTSCity Commissioner Diane Velazquez (far left) and County Commissioner Bryan Nelson (far right) were in attendance.Since 2010, 96,900 jobs have been created, which last year spurred the construction of 2,600 new homes catapulting Orange County’s 2015 building permit valuations to $1.9 billion, a 17 percent increase from the prior year, without any property tax hikes, millage rate increases or cuts to County services. For the third year in a row, countywide property tax revenues are up, with more than $386 million generated in 2015.On a national scale, Gallup ranked the metro Orlando region No. 1 in the nation for job creation in 2015. Additionally, KPMG named the region as the second-most cost-competitive community in the U.S. for business.ORANGE CODE AND OCFL ATLASSince taking office in 2011, one of Mayor Jacobs’ priorities has been to work toward a sustainable future and streamline the County’s development review processes to make it more transparent, efficient and predictable. A first step was to become more responsive to customer needs in development permitting by establishing “One-Stop.” Mayor Jacobs also created the Regulatory Streamlining Task Force to evaluate the County’s development review processes and embarked on the County’s first Sustainable Orange County Plan.Known as Orange Code, the new code process announced at the State of the County, represents a simplified and sustainable way to govern how land is developed. Through this new approach Orange County is striving to create inviting places, spaces, and neighborhoods, each with a distinct feeling. Whether it’s neighborhoods with quaint restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance, or more developed areas, Orange Code will give us the tools to achieve these unique places. As Orange County moves to this new platform, we’ve selected I-Drive as the perfect place to roll out Orange Code.ENHANCING ORANGE COUNTY’S ECONOMYAs the Convention Center enters its third year of a $187 million dollar capital investment project, Orange County continues to invest in fresh, high-tech meeting spaces and the amenities. The Orange County Convention Center propels a significant economic engine, hosting more than 200 events a year, welcoming 1.4 million attendees and contributing more than $2 billion to the area’s economy.Maintaining a relentless focus on entrepreneurship and economic prosperity, Orange County continues to be a prime destination for companies to do business. Through the National Entrepreneur Center, the Central Florida International Trade Office and working with UCF’s Business Incubator at Research Park, the region is seeing tremendous gains in its innovation economy. Orange County also continues to focus heavily on Modeling, Simulation and Training through its MS&T Blue Ribbon Commission.Mayor Joe Kilsheimer (left) was at the speech and is expected to deliver The State of the City address for Apopka in the near future.INVESTING IN THE FUTUREIn addition to the tremendous investments in infrastructure and innovation, much work has been done to care for Orange County’s citizens and children impacted by homelessness. By late 2015, the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness ended Veterans homelessness, with an effective rate of zero. Homeless families however, remain a difficult challenge. In early 2015, a report was released to look at how effectively dollars are being spent with regard to housing homeless families. The Orange County Committee of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness is already working to make those changes. A key finding in that report was the need for affordable housing.Through the INVEST initiative, there are multiple programs and projects aimed directly at expanding access and inventory of affordable housing for strategies in addressing this shortage. Orange County’s housing initiatives will receive $5 million over the next five years to help fund these efforts, including an Affordable Rental Housing project, which will create 70 brand new affordable housing apartments, with 20 percent of the units dedicated for the homeless population. This also includes the renovation of the Wayne Densch Center and a single-family subdivision called the New Horizons Project.Orange County’s projected $2 million dollar investment to the Wayne Densch Center, in partnership with Florida Hospital, Ability Housing, Wayne Densch Charities, the Central Florida Foundation and the Florida Community Loan Fund will support the renovation of the facility and provide a vital housing resource for families, including those who have challenges due to mental illness, addiction or physical disability. The New Horizons Project in South Apopka, formerly known as Hawthorne Village, will also provide 56 homes for low- and very low-income households in need of housing.Through the same partnership approach, Orange County is helping to address Central Florida’s heroin epidemic with the Orange County Heroin Task Force, which Mayor Jacobs convened in 2015 with co-chair Sheriff Jerry L. Demings. The Task Force’s 37 recommendations included bond increases for suspected trafficking as well as a public information outreach campaign using traditional and social media to warn citizens about the deadly nature of heroin. The Task Force also recommended the activation of a “blanket prescription” for Naloxone, a life-saving drug when faced with fatal overdoses. Mayor Jacobs recently testified before Congress about the deadly impact heroin use poses to Orange County citizens and provided insight and research based on the findings of the Orange County Heroin Task Force.For the entire article, go here.

Sunwolves lock Tim Bond suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous tackle

first_imgMonday Apr 11, 2016 Sunwolves lock Tim Bond suspended for 4 weeks for dangerous tackle Sunwolves lock Tim Bond has been banned for four weeks following a sending off against the Stormers in Round 7 of Super Rugby on Saturday. Bond tackled Cheslin Kolbe slightly late but more significantly, hit him in the face with his shoulder. Bond pled guilty to contravening Law 10.4 (e)* Dangerous tackling of an Opponent at Newlands in Cape Town with ten minutes left of their match, that the Stormers won 46-19.Upon consultation with TMO and assistant referee, Nic Berry showed Bond a straight red card.Following the disciplinary hearing, SANZAAR Duty Judicial Officer Michael Heron QC stated that Bond explained he was trying to tackle Kolbe with a ‘smother tackle’, and tried to pull out when he knew the ball was passed.Heron went on to say that the tackle was high and late and with only one arm engaged. While it was not intentional or pre-meditated, it was reckless as his shoulder connected with Kolbe’s head, leading to the Stormers fullback having to leave the field.“I indicated that I saw this as mid-range, and warranting an entry point of 6 weeks under Appendix 1,” stated Heron, also adding that Bond checked on Kolbe and apologised.“In the circumstances, particularly in light of the early guilty plea, I was willing to discount the relevant sanction to a period of four weeks’ suspension, through and including the playing weekend of 7-8 May.”*Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent including early or late and including the action known as the “stiff arm tackle”.

These fragments can never be reduced to an immediate unit, but must coexist as parallel realities. Save this picture!© João FerrandWe sought to make sure that exterior facades would not simply mimic the desired unit, but would reproduce an artistic image resulting from the articulation and integration of the nearest enclosure (Lapa) and the furthest. Save this picture!© João FerrandThe proposal is establishead on the overflow of the limits of the lot, adapting the building to the street and affirming the recognition of the significant points of urban reality. Save this picture!© João FerrandThe different heights of the volumetry respond to the context and variation of scale, producing a significant building / space that mediates between two ways of creating a city. Save this picture!© João FerrandFor economic reasons, we find it consistent to use a typology based on the left right outline. Furthermore, the morfhological characteristics of the lot, the tittle depht it allows and the little depth desired for the building impede any other sort of typology. Therefore we have introduced typological rationality in the distribution of the housing units that is only broken at trning points on the floor plan. The entrances are directly related to the proposed housing typology and, at the same time, in accordance with the programmatic and functional organisation. The entrances are located around the central space, fundamental in the articulation of the different scales. Access to the car park is from the patio and adjacent streets (on corners and in the middle of the building). The distribution of the housing units follows an outline on both sides of a hall. It identifies whit the adjoining fabric and is the result of an approximation to the typology based on the composition elements of the facade. Given the diferences in elevation of the streets, facing the bedrooms towards the patio and the wet areas towards calle Salgueiros is almost compulsory. In this way, window size is reduced, providing more privacy.

In this Video Spotlight, Mayopoulos discussed the factors impacting affordability, especially for first-time buyers.Low inventory is one of the biggest factors behind affordability issues, especially among the lower end of the market, as the U.S. is currently around 2.5 million units short according to Freddie Mac. Additionally, prices are expected to rise faster at the entry-level than any other segment Mayopoulos notes. “Here’s a labor shortage, land acquisition costs which are extremely high, and regulatory and zoning challenges,” said Mayopoulos.What about the risk of recession? Mayopoulos addressed the worries about another recession, and if we are currently “planting the seeds” for a new downturn.“I think people have learned the lessons from the last crisis, and I don’t think you can solve this problem by lowering credit standards,” he said. “Credit standards are really at an appropriate place, but what we need to do is think about housing stock being part of the national infrastructure. We need to figure out how to create more supply.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: A Commitment to Mortgage Data Privacy Next: Is Housing the Economy’s Saving Grace?
