The federal government launched a swooping crackdown on internet poker sites on Saturday, arresting the founders of three of the largest online poker firms doing business in the US.The websites of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker were seized and taken offline by the government.The ongoing Department of Justice investigation into online gambling could also put 888 in the firing line.The firm has not struck a deal with US authorities to give it immunity from retrospective legal action in relation to its activities in America prior to 2006.However, 888 recently gained approval from Nevada state regulators for a marketing agreement with Las Vegas hotel Caesars, a move the firm said would bolster its push for licensed online gaming in the US.Shares in the company plummeted after Ladbrokes announced it had walked away, whilst stock in the high street bookmaker shot upwards.The development follows the shock departure of chief executive Gigi Levy last week, following a row with the firm’s Israeli owners.888’s problems were further compounded when Brian Mattingley stepped aside as chairman of the audit committee whilst a new chief executive is sought. Richard Kilsbey remains chairman of the firm. However, the firm produced strong financial results for its first quarter of this year, and said that even without Ladbrokes its business remained “well-positioned” for future growth. whatsapp Tags: NULL

The stock market crash caused many shares to become undervalued across a wide range of sectors. While some have recovered to a large extent, there are still opportunities for long-term investors to generate high returns.With monetary policy stimulus likely to lead to an improving economic outlook, and the stock market having a solid track record of recovery, now could be an opportune moment to buy high-quality businesses. Over the long run, it could even lead to you obtaining a seven-figure portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Cheap stocks after a market crashThe prospects for a number of industries continue to be uncertain. For example, changing consumer trends could impact on the retail sector, while weaker demand for resources may cause challenging financial prospects for many oil and gas companies.Therefore, there are still a number of stocks that appear to offer wide margins of safety. Certainly, many of them aren’t as cheap as they were a number of weeks ago during what was one of the fastest declines in the stock market’s history.But investors who are looking to use the stock market’s cyclicality to their advantage, in terms of buying at low prices and selling at higher prices, appear to have a number of opportunities available.Economic recoveryThe market crash suggests investors are downbeat about the economy’s near-term outlook. While this may prove to be correct, in the long run, the world economy has a solid track record of delivering positive growth following its recessions.For example, it recovered to post strong growth following the global financial crisis. There were times during that downturn when it felt as though economic growth would never return. The same prospects may be felt by some investors in the coming months. But with major fiscal and monetary policy stimulus, a successful economic recovery seems highly likely.Economic growth is likely to produce increasingly favourable operating conditions for most sectors. This could boost their earnings growth rates and lead to higher stock prices in the coming years.Relative appealThe crash may also have dissuaded some investors from buying equities in the near term. They may currently favour less risky assets, such as bonds and cash, in order to preserve the value of their portfolios.However, over the long run, investor sentiment towards stocks is likely to improve. The return prospects available from other mainstream assets could prove to be highly disappointing, due to low interest rates that may now be present for a number of years.This lack of relative appeal may lead to rising stock prices over the coming years that lifts the value of your portfolio. Through buying shares today while they are undervalued, you could generate high returns that increase your chances of making a million.
“I have worked too long now and too hard to get rid of segregation in public accommodations to turn back to the point of segregating my moral concern. Justice is indivisible. Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. And wherever I see injustice, I’m going to take a stand against it whether it’s in Mississippi or in Vietnam.”— Martin Luther King on “Face to Face,” July 1967 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the heroic leader of the Civil Rights struggle, whose birthday is honored with a federal holiday on Jan. 18, was put under tremendous pressure to stay silent on the imperialist war against Vietnam. He was told that the only way that the political establishment of his time would pass progressive legislation would be for him not to object to the brutal war against the Vietnamese people. King absolutely refused.Infamous Birmingham, Ala., cop Bull Connor, who ordered the brutal assaults on Civil Rights demonstrators with dogs, fire hoses, clubs and guns in the early 1960s, is long dead. However, young Black women and men still remain victims today of a racist war by cops from Ferguson to Cleveland, from Chicago to New York, from Oakland to Minneapolis to Los Angeles.Certainly, the brave activists of the Black Lives Matter movement carry forward King’s legacy to this very day.And King would have been proud of activists linking the Black Lives Matter struggle with that for immigrant rights, particularly with the current Gestapo-like ICE raids and deportations targeting Central American immigrants who have fled the U.S.-caused turmoil in their home countries.King said that the conditions faced by African Americans, who were denied voting rights; equal employment and pay; equal rights to housing, education and hotel rooms; and who were trapped in a life of poverty, were linked to the death and devastation caused by the U.S. military adventure in Vietnam. King was coming to the conclusion that the struggle of workers and the oppressed for justice knew no borders before he was struck down by an assassin’s bullet in 1968.An excerpt from his historic April 4, 1967, Riverside Church address in New York City reads: “There is at the outset a very obvious and almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam and the struggle I and others have been waging in America. A few years ago, there was a shining moment in that struggle. It seemed as if there was a real promise of hope for the poor, both black and white, through the poverty program. There were experiments, hopes, new beginnings. Then came the buildup in Vietnam, and I watched this program broken and eviscerated as if it were some idle political plaything of a society gone mad on war. And I knew that America would never invest the necessary funds or energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued to draw men and skills and money like some demonic, destructive suction tube. So I was increasingly compelled to see the war as an enemy of the poor and to attack it as such.” (nationalljournal.com, Jan. 20, 2014)U.S. imperialism has never ceased its relentless war drive, whether by open invasion, as in Iraq and Afghanistan, or proxy war, as in Syria, Yemen or Libya. Trillions are spent to feed the war machine, and millions are killed or driven from their homes, while workers and oppressed communities here face stagnant or starvation wages, evictions, huge college debts and never-ending cutbacks to social programs like food stamps.In the face of the heroic rebellions against the racist oppression of the Black communities that broke out in Watts, in Newark, in Detroit and elsewhere, King pointed to the true cause and the true target of many struggles.King went on to say at Riverside Church: “I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today — my own government.”King is gone now, cut down by an assassin’s bullet just twelve months after he spoke those words. But his vision of linking all the different struggles against injustice offers a stirring example for us today and many lessons.

He served as chairman and CEO of the Bank of Hawaii from 2004 to 2010 and served in several other executive positions with the bank from 2000 until his appointment as CEO, including president, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and risk officer.From 1998 to 2000, Landon served as CFO for First American Corp. and its subsidiary, First American National Bank. The majority of Landon’s professional career has been spent at Ernst & Young, where he worked from 1970 to 1998, becoming a partner in 1984. Landon received a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University.”Allan Landon has the proven experience, judgment and deep knowledge of the financial system to serve at the Federal Reserve during this important time for our economy,” Obama said in a prepared statement “He brings decades of leadership and expertise from various roles, particularly as a community banker. I’m confident that he will serve our country well.”The Fed has not had had a community banker serve on its board of governors since Elizabeth Duke retired in August 2013.Landon’s nomination must be confirmed by the Senate, which may present an obstacle now that Republicans have a majority. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Alabama), who is expected to become chairman of the Senate Banking Committee (which must approve the nomination), opposed Obama’s nomination of economist Peter Diamond as Fed governor in 2010.Landon previously served on the board for the Seattle Federal Home Loan Bank. He and Washington Federal Savings CEO Roy Whitehead, who also served on that board, were removed from their positions on the board in May 2005 due to the improper sale of a combined $73 million worth of their banks’ stock. The board did not find any wrongdoing on Landon’s or Whitehead’s part, but the board’s independent review committee found that an “an appearance of impropriety” was created when the Bank of Hawaii and Washington Federal redeemed $25 million and $48 million, respectively, worth of Seattle FHLBank stock in 2004.

Mayo, Jim Higgins said “I am concerned that the lack of a Garda presence on our roads in Co. Donegal is resulting in more people losing their lives in 2013 so far. I want to see this trend reversed. We also need to cooperation of all road users – motorists, pedestrians and cyclists alike in order to drive deaths down. I want to see this latest trend stopped, and visible traffic units mounted more often in the county.”Nationally figures remain stable compared to last year, with an increase of just 2 deaths from 92 to 94 deaths for the first six months. “Last year was the safest year ever on Irish roads, with 161 people losing their lives, thanks to the work of the RSA and the public’s cooperation. We need to make sure 2013 is even safer, and stop the bloody slaughter,” said the FG MEP.Mr Higgins paid particular tribute to the work of the RSA saying “Since the RSA was set up in 2006, the number of lives lost has been falling year on year. This has been due to a combination of driver education, hard hitting ads, better enforcement, new driving tests and licences, the NCT and penalty points. From being one of the most dangerous countries a decade ago, we are now the 4th safest country in the EU in which to drive – this is no small achievement. That said, we need to focus on blackspots like Donegal and reverse this latest trend.” WhatsApp News Twitter Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan fire

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Will The Real Joe Donnelly Please Stand Up?Don’t be hoodwinked. The affable Senator Joe Donnelly you see smiling in his many TV ads paid for by the National Democrat Party saying he went to Washington to work for you, is being disingenuous at best. He went to Washington to work for Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. Yes, he and two other “at risk” democrat senators went to dinner with President Trump two weeks ago, and yes, he met with Congressmen Messer and Rokita and VP Pence this fall in Anderson, not because he agreed with anything Trump or Pence was going to say, but because his job is in jeopardy. He, as have too many chummy republicans, has popped on a moderate mask to deceive you and me.It is all about ends and means. Senator Donnelly is one of three sitting Democrat senators at risk for losing their jobs next fall, because they represent states that went to Trump in the general election. Donnelly is smiling and socializing with Trump and Pence because he has been allowed to do so by Chuckie Schumer. The ends—retaining Indiana’s senate seat for the democrats—is all that matters. He needs to be seen as a moderate force in the Hoosier State, and a faux conservative in order to maintain that seat. Let me be clear that Donnelly has been bought and paid for by Senator Schumer and the democrat party fearful of losing yet another senate seat to the republicans next fall. If the means to that end, is voting with more value-centered republicans for tax reform, he will be permitted to do so by the increasingly frightened democrat leadership.Donnelly has proudly said he will never approve a border wall and will never allow federal funds to be denied to sanctuary cities. He is also a firm supporter of the abortion mill we know by the euphemism of Planned Parenthood. Now he wants to be seen as friendly to tax reform so as not to lose this senate seat next time around. If he is reelected, he will once again be Schumer’s Midwest servant voting to raise your taxes and push this country toward single-payer healthcare. What does single-payer health care mean to you? It means your taxes will rise to an even higher confiscatory level, healthcare will be rationed, innovative medicine will go elsewhere, and the same bureaucracies that run the post office, the DMV, and the EPA will determine the quality of health care you receive.If we think for a second that the same Joe Donnelly who votes 90% of the time with the progressive democrat agenda, who was the deciding vote in approving Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal, after telling the republicans he would vote to reject it, and was the critical vote for the midnight attack on America’s excellent health care, now known an Obamacare, actually supports Trump’s desire to bring home corporate earnings, remove the death tax, reduce taxes for the middle class, and reduce the federal control of our economy, you are whistling past the graveyard.We need a republican in that senate seat next November. I am the one outsider in our primary race who has no current federal income that I am trying to preserve. I will be new to Washington DC, not a member of the already existing swamp. I ask for your vote.Working for you,Mark HurtCandidate For the United States SenateFOOTNOTE: This article was posted by the CCO without opinion, bias or editing.
Tonight, the Phish will return for night 13 with a “pink glaze with rainbow sprinkles” donut, and still hundreds of songs to choose from in their ever-expansive songbook. Thank you Phish, we can’t believe we’ve made it this far. It’s been a wild run, folks, and Phish will officially complete their thirteen-night residency at Madison Square Garden tonight in true fashion. Not only is that the longest streak of consecutive shows to take place at The Garden, but the band perfected the run without a single repeat. Each night of the Baker’s Dozen presented a new flavor donut, which translated to the night’s setlist theme. This inevitably created a “can’t miss” atmosphere that drew thousands of fans to the city for the final weekend’s sold-out shows. On Friday night, the Vermont quartet celebrated their 50th show at the 20,000+ person venue–another huge accomplishment, to say the least. While this run has been historic for fans all over the world, New York City has especially reaped the benefits of having Phish in town.Phish Delivers Boston Cream Mash-Up, “Ghost,” & “The Lizards” For Penultimate Baker’s Dozen PerformanceTonight certainly marks an important moment in Phish history, for all the reasons mentioned above. We’re not the only ones thrilled by Phish’s NYC residency, as the NYC Mayor’s Office tweeted that today, August 6, 2017, is officially “Phish Day.” Their message reads: “Thanks for the memories we shared, we’ll never forget either,” with a photo of Team Phish backstage at Madison Square Garden beneath a large sign that celebrates their 50th show on Friday. Thanks Mayor Bill De Blasio! Here’s a close up of the “Phish Day” proclamation:
