Aside from Hesoun, Casinos Austria has announced a number of new additions to its supervisory board, including former PwC chief executive Christine Catasta and compliance and player protection expert Erika Stark-Rittenauer. Thomas Schmid, a board member at Österreichische Beteiligungs (ÖBAG), which holds a major take in the business, also backed this approach, sayings casinos and lotteries have a responsibility to protect players.

GPA-djp national director Karl Dürtscher claimed ReFiT was “certainly not in the best interest of the state and taxpayers”. “In particular, the two main owners will make a substantial contribution to strengthening sales and the development of new online offerings and will drive the urgently needed fight against illegality.” Hesoun, general director of Siemens Austria, will replace chief executive Robert Chvatal, who served in the role on an interim basis since Walter Rothensteiner left the business in July this year.

Management Gerhild Hofer and Thomas Polzer will both step down from the board to make way for the new additions. Setting out his core aims as chairman, Hesoun said much of his focus will be on protecting players from gambling-related harm. “The syndicate agreement between the two main owners amicably regulates the strategic development and direction of the group of companies,” Sazka’s chief executive Robert Chvatal said. “We want to establish Casinos Austria as a best practice company in the field of player protection in the coming years,” he said.

The primates had visited a conference hall near this site at the start of their meeting, when they were received in audience by King Abdullah II of Jordan, who spoke of Christians as “an inherent component and an integral part of the fabric of the region.”In a homily during the service, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby spoke of the history of conflict in the region since 1945, saying: “This is a place of the reality of pain, of sin, of struggle and of death and of the call to reconciliation. And that reality is a reality for so many of us, so many of you. As we have heard in the last few days, you live in places of pain and struggle and sin and war and death.”Read the full article here.

Sue Ryder is encouraging people to leave a lasting legacy and secure the future of their loved ones

first_img Howard Lake | 11 January 2011 | News Advertisement Tagged with: legacies Sue Ryder is encouraging people to leave a lasting legacy and secure the future of their loved ones AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Most people postpone writing a Will especially if they are still working as they feel it is too early in their life to think about it. In England almost two-thirds of people have not written a Will.* In some countries a deceased’s possession must go to specific people, but in England and Wales if a person dies ‘intestate’ – without a Will – the government decides how their estate will be divided up amongst family and loved ones**.National health and social care charity Sue Ryder is launching its Legacy Campaign through its nationwide network of 350 charity shops to raise awareness of the importance of writing a Will. Now in its third year, the campaign also asks people to consider leaving a gift in their Will in aid of the charity.Throughout January Sue Ryder’s charity shops on will display information about legacy giving and people will have the chance to learn more about the advantages of writing a Will by calling 01452 771 143 or visiting www.suerydercare.org to require an information pack.Sue Ryder’s customers and donors will also have the chance to enter a free raffle for a chance to win a cruise for two to The Dutch Bulb Fields given by Phoenix Holidays Ltd. Group Sales Managing Director, Anu Desai, says, “Phoenix Holidays are proud to be working in partnership with Sue Ryder, we hope our support will help the charity continue its work providing compassionate care for people with end of life and long term conditions. We wish Sue Ryder every success with their Legacy Campaign in 2011.”Gill Cannon, who worked in the legal sector as a Family Lawyer for more than 20 years and is now Legacy Manager at Sue Ryder, explained: “Nowadays most people are homeowners or shareholders and it is important to think ahead to make sure you leave what you want to the people you love and care about. It is never too early to think about writing a Will. Some people believe that they will need to write one when they are older and fragile or they decide to postpone it as they think it may be too expensive.But if you want to protect the future of the people you love and ensure they will receive what you want, it is essential to write a Will as soon as possible and keep it updated if there are any changes in your personal circumstances. Anyone who owns a house, has children or has a small amount of savings should write one. Making a Will can also reduce Inheritance Tax and give you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy to a charity close to your heart”.Sue Ryder works with a network of reputable solicitors nationwide and The Goodwill Partnership to provide people with a Will writing service that is secure and regulated by official bodies. For instance, the Goodwill Partnership offers a solicitor-provided Will-writing service visiting people in the comfort of their own homes with no obligation to sign up to the service.Gill added: “As well as informing people about the importance of writing a Will, we are also encouraging people to leave a gift – a legacy – to the charity in their Will. Any gift, be it a small percentage of their estate, a set amount of money or a specific gift, will help Sue Ryder provide end of life care and long-term social care for thousands of people who live with debilitating conditions such as cancer, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, dementia and Motor Neurone disease”.All money raised through legacies and voluntary donations helps Sue Ryder provide care and support to people living with complex conditions at a very fragile time of their life as well as to their family and loved ones through residential, in-patient, day care, homecare and community-based services.Samantha Cheverton, Healthcare Manager at Sue Ryder, commented: “The money raised for Sue Ryder will help to ensure that people who are not going to get better can still enjoy the best quality of life for as long as they live. We believe that everyone who needs our expert care should be able to receive it and live their lives with dignity and independence.A gift as small as £15 provides a half hour physiotherapy session for someone with Multiple Sclerosis to help increase their mobility, £50 pays for a programme of bereavement sessions to help people cope with loss and £300 covers the daily cost of running a bed in one of the charity’s 6 hospices across the country”.If you would like to know more about legacy giving and writing a Will please call 01452 771 143 or visit www.suerydercare.orgSource:* Dying Matters Coalition; http://www.dyingmatters.org/site/why-talk-about-it**the Law Society; http://www.lawsociety.org.uk/home.law  109 total views,  1 views today  110 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Government minister threatens to kill newspaper editor

first_img Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial August 1, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government minister threatens to kill newspaper editor January 13, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts Organisation Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) called today on the Sri Lankan government to disown one of its members, fisheries minister Mahinda Wijeskera, for threatening to kill editor Lasantha Wickrematunga, of the The Sunday Leader, after the paper printed articles accusing him of corruption. The minister claimed he had the prime minister’s support in making the threat.”We deeply deplore the minister’s behaviour and ask you to take action against him,” said Reporters Without Borders in a letter to prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. The minister had every right to sue the journalist for libel, theorganisation said, but such threats, uttered inside parliament, were a serious blow to the government’s credibility about respect for press freedom. The paper reported on 27 July that the minister had threatened the editor in front of witnesses, including water management minister Lakshman Seneviratne, who confirmed the incident to Reporters Without Borders. The paper quoted Wijeskera as saying that “very soon I’ll put him in a room and have him shot or he will be stabbed.” He claimed the prime minister supported his attitude. The paper said Wijeskera boasted that under the previous government he had been part of a group that had planned the killing of three journalists, one of whom was murdered. In 1999, during the rule of then prime minister (now president) Chandrika Kumaratunga, Rohana Kumara, editor of the anti-government newspaper Satana, was killed.Reporters Without Borders called on the government to set up a parliamentary commission of enquiry into the supposed group if the minister confirmed his claims.Editor Wickrematunga and his outspoken paper, which investigates corruption, has been the target of much harassment and numerous libel suits since 1995. In 2000, the government closed it down for seven weeks.

The energy savings extends through the entire life of the equipment returning the cost of the initial investment in less than five years. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder “The cost and availability of well designed and tested LED fixtures made this project a practical consideration,” said David St. John, consulting engineer who initiated the project. “I’ve worked successfully with Whitehead for many years and together we found fixtures that offered a sufficient light pattern at a cost that gave us a full return on investment in four and a half years. “A primary concern with spending municipal funds is getting the most for taxpayers’ money in a long-term solution. We expect to get more than our money’s worth with this investment.” Skip By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits City Manager Britt Thomas said the LED lights were made possible with the help of US Department of Energy funds via the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and were administered by the Energy Division of ADECA .“The project included 104 fixtures and will save wholesale power costs around $6,000 a year,” Thomas said. “That might not sound like much but, over five years, it will be a savings of $30,000 and that’s rather significant.” Latest Stories Brundidge will be seen in a new light now that Whitehead & Associates, an Atlanta-based electrical manufacture’s representative, has completed a lighting retrofit for the city.The LED lights on Main and East Troy streets will make nights a little brighter and put a little more jingle in the city’s coffers by running on less current and reducing maintenance costs.

Number of agents joining Keller Williams accelerates during lockdown
