City A.M. understands Turrell, who has called the meeting as the firm’s biggest shareholder with a 35 per cent stake, will make a number of allegations, including that the board was unaware of Cooper’s history of mental illness.An Imaginatik spokesman declined to comment but a source close to the company said Cooper had been very open about suffering from acute anxiety, even giving an interview to a national newspaper.Turrell also alleges he was constructively dismissed, claiming the firm threatened to put out a “highly negative” statement to the market regarding his personal life if he did not sign a separation agreement.It is understood both sides have instigated legal action.Imaginatik, which provides software consultancy services, says it is considering whether the request for a general meeting is valid and will announce its decision within 21 days.A company spokesman said: “We are confident that if the resolutions set out are put to shareholders they will be defeated,” adding the meeting is “an unnecessary distraction and a waste of the company’s resources”. whatsapp KCS-content Former CEO of Imaginatik demands vote Tags: NULL Wednesday 17 November 2010 8:33 pmcenter_img Show Comments ▼ Share Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

EGBA joins opposition to Swedish casino restrictions

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has criticised the online casino restrictions set to come into force in Sweden next month as “not evidence-led” and warned they may do more harm than good for Swedish player protection.Proposed by Minister for Health and Social Affairs Ardalan Shekarabi, the restrictions would set an SEK5,000 (£401/€459/$495) mandatory weekly deposit limit and a SEK100 cap on bonuses from 1 June to the end of 2020.Maarten Haijer, secretary general of EGBA, said the restrictions could end up doing more harm than good.“We understand that politicians seek to reassure and protect their citizens during these difficult times, but the proposed gambling restrictions could actually harm more customers than they protect,” Haijer said. “Many Swedes are already gambling on unlicensed websites and these restrictions will make unlicensed websites – which don’t apply any limits – even more attractive to them.”EGBA said that the regulations were “not evidence-led” and the more effective way of preventing problem gambling during lockdown would be to focus specifically on at-risk customers. The Association cited data from Belgium, Denmark and Great Britain as well as H2’s global gambling forecasts, all of which it said proved online gambling has decreased “substantially”.“Rather than one-size-fits-all restrictions, which will have no effect on the majority of customers and jeopardise consumer protection for those they seek to protect, EGBA supports targeted measures, including tailored interventions, to protect those at risk of problem gambling at this time,” it said.EGBA echoed the Swedish Gaming Authority’s (Spelinspektionen) sentiments towards the rules, which the regulator said could have a negative effect on channelisation towards the licenced market in Sweden“The deposit limit could, as Spelinspektionen rightly warn, drive high-spending players towards unlicensed websites which undermine their consumer protection – these websites are readily available, easy to access and do not apply any limits or responsible gambling measures, including the country’s Spelpaus self-exclusion scheme,” EGBA added.Haijer concluded by saying that top-down regulation is rarely the most effective way to solve problem gambling issues.“We must remember gambling is human behavior, consumers will always make their own choices and top-down regulation rarely works. In this case, it could have detrimental or counterproductive effects by pushing more gambling onto unregulated websites.”Many businesses active in the Swedish market have also criticised the controls. Cherry warned that the controls could make it harder to track changes in customer habits and spending as players would move between operators more frequently.AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) said it supported efforts to improve safeguards, though also noted that it has seen no increase in unhealthy play among its customer base.Henrik Tjärnström, chief executive of Unibet operator Kindred, called the proposals “an open invitation to illegal gambling sites”, while  Svenska Spel chief executive Patrik Hofbauer argued existing regulations set out each operator’s responsibilties to customers, meaning that additional controls were unnecessary. 18th May 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter EGBA joins opposition to Swedish casino restrictions Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Tags: Online Gambling Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has criticised the online casino restrictions set to come into force in Sweden next month as “not evidence-led” and warned they may do more harm than good for Swedish player protection.

‘I would talk with Boko Haram’: Anglican Communion secretary general

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Michael Grear says: Rector Tampa, FL Rector Collierville, TN Africa, AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Anglican Communion News Service] The secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, has said he would be prepared to talk with Boko Haram, if their leadership could be identified.Speaking in a HARDtalk interview with BBC journalist Stephen Sackur, Idowu-Fearon warned that it was “not helpful” to talk of a “fundamental struggle between Christians and Islam” or use language which suggests “a form of genocide” against Christians.Talking of his own experiences in Nigeria, Idowu-Fearon said: “The Boko Haram crisis we are facing does not discriminate. They come under the guise of Islam but we all know … that this is not the Islam we are used to.“For example, in that north-eastern part of Nigeria it is predominantly Muslim – Shia and Sunni Islam. Who are they trying to convert there? So it isn’t religion per se, that’s the point.”Idowu-Fearon didn’t criticize Pope Francis who had spoken of “a form of genocide” saying that the Pope had made his statement based on the information available to him; but he added: “The information that I have, what I lived with in my country, I wouldn’t use the term ‘religious genocide’ because with Boko Haram, more Muslims have been killed than Christians.”He laughed off criticisms from some quarters that he was a “Muslim Bishop” because of his lengthy studies of Islam and dialogue with Islamic leaders, and said: “I didn’t choose this ministry. God called me. And I believe God has done that for a specific purpose.“I come from the northern parts of Nigeria where religion is being used, and has been used, to divide us along Christian – Muslim lines. In the south west we have a significant huge number of Muslims and Christians. They don’t fight. Why are we fighting in the north?“I believe my calling is to help the Muslim to see me as a fellow-Nigerian who comes from the northern part of the country.”Idowu-Fearon acknowledged that there “would always be room for conflict” between Islam and Christianity because both religions were missiological; but he said that “our job, my job, is to help the Muslim and the Christian to understand each other.”Asked whether his bridge-building work could extend to dialogue with Boko Haram, Idowu-Fearon said: “If we can actually identify who the true leadership is . . . why not? . . . Dialogue is the beginning of the solution … If they are willing.”He continued: “We must all understand one thing: these are all God’s children, whether they are criminals or not. They are all God’s children and God love us equally. These have chosen to behave the way they are behaving and the responsibility is on those of us who believe there is a better way to help them to find it.“That’s why I am a Christian. That’s why I am involved in bridge-building.”During the 25-minute interview, Sackur touched on a range of issues, including conflicts within the Anglican Communion. Idowu-Fearon told him that Anglicans were working on a range of “Kingdom-things,” including Islamic extremism, corruption, poverty and bad governance.

I am sure they would not kidnap him, nor torture him, nor kill him. They would all sit down together in the spirit of universal love and exchange a civilized and open discussion on the merits of all faiths and the error of their murderous ways towards Christians.

Alesana and brother Vavae Tuilagi cause damage against the USA

first_imgTuesday Jul 21, 2015 Alesana and brother Vavae Tuilagi cause damage against the USA Samoa edged the USA Eagles 21-16 in an entertaining Pacific Nations Cup match in San Jose, surviving a strong second half comeback. Alesana Tuilagi was his usual menacing self, while Vavae Tuilagi, the 6th Tuilagi brother, made his debut. Samoa scored all 21 points in the first half, with winger Alesana Tuilagi crossing for a well taken try after some neat footwork from fullback Ahsee Tuala set him up. He then turned provider with an excellent crosskick for Tuala following a great break up field.The hosts, buoyd in front of a crowd 10,000 strong, pushed hard for their first win against Samoa in four attempts, and came close thanks to a 74th minute try by Titi Lamositele.The Tuilagi family will be proud to have fielded yet another brother in Test rugby, the 6th, as French ProD2 player Vavae made his debut. He played at number eight, following in the footsteps of Samoan legend Henry, who clearly taught him a thing or two about big carries.Vavae was with Leicester Tigers, as well as Narbonne, but now plays for US Carcassonne.He and Alesana were both part of what would have been a memorable try, were it not for a courageous chase and hit by USA Sevens star, Danny Barrett. While there were questions asked about the legality of the try, referee JP Doyle brushed it off saying there was no TMO.The Pacific Nations Cup runs from 18 July to 3 August with teams drawn in two pools of three in a round-robin competition, played at venues in Fiji, USA and Canada.View the Alesana Tuilagi and Ahsee Tuala tries (on page two)Alesana Tuilagi tryAhsee Tuala tryADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In fact, it wasn’t long before they learned that there were alternative methods of dealing with disputes and finally stopped brandishing knives and throwing stones at each other.“The enormity of the HIV pandemic is overwhelming and we firmly believe that when it launches in August, gift2help.com will make a significant impact by not only providing people with an insight into this enormous problem, but will also attract donations to ensure that this terrible and preventable disease is contained before it personally affects us all.”gift2help.com is unlike any other charity-giving website in that it is totally free of charge for the charity involved. 100% of every donation made will go direct to Africaid WhizzKids United and there is no cost at all to the organisation.Donors will be able visit the website, choose Africaid WhizzKids United from a list of other charities and view the shopping list of items that it requires for the everyday running of its projects. For those wanting to support more than one charity, gift2help.com will provide a simple and easy platform to donate to several charities in one easy transaction.There is still time for your charity to get involved and start fundraising through gift2help.com. For more information about joining email Markus at: [email protected] Howard Lake | 21 July 2009 | Newscenter_img A charity which aims to educate the prevention of HIV infection in children and teenagers in Africa is the latest in a string of organisations to join new fundraising website gift2help.com which launches in August.Africaid WhizzKids United chose KwaZulu Natal as its starting point because it has one of the highest new HIV infection rates amongst young people anywhere in the world. The prevalence rate is shockingly around 16% in 15 to 24 year olds overall and an alarming 60% plus amongst 15-24 year old women in some areas.Founder and CEO of Africaid WhizzKids, Marcus McGilvray, initially attempted to educate street children to the dangers of HIV in the classroom with the offer of a football game as their reward for attendance. However it soon became apparent that to harness their interest, the educational element had to be dropped as the kids weren’t interested in learning but simply wanted to play football. Consequently, the classroom was moved permanently to the football pitch, with a focus on relating football to life skills as an effective method of getting the message across.
