The GB Gambling Commission has given its endorsement to the UK Government’s new Economic Crime Plan, which sets out plans to combat industry-related issues, such as money laundering and terrorist financing.

A computer game could be written by a single person, working from their bedroom. It is not like that now, and it has changed for a good reason. This reason partly explains why I think that this UK computer and video games company, which has been around since the 1980s, could be set to enjoy a stellar performance.The reason is hardware. Purists say the hardware does not matter, rather it is design and the imagination that has gone into a video game that counts. If that is so, explain how the computer and video games business has grown so massively over the last two or three decades There hasn’t been an increase in imagination, games designers haven’t suddenly become more talented, but what has increased is computer power.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…In its early days, Codemasters Group (LSE: CDM) sold budget computer games, typically selling for £1.99 for the Sinclair Spectrum and Commodore 64. As hardware became more powerful, games designers found that they could be more ambitious; graphics improved from blocks that had a vague resemblance to something real to graphics so realistic that it was hard to distinguish them from reality.That’s what happens when state of the art becomes several thousand times more powerful.The company itself was listed on the AIM market in June 2018. At first, the share price fell sharply, before rising. A few days before Christmas, its shares were trading at a new all-time high. Shares are up around 40% since August, but only 4% up on the IPO price.The company is interesting for four reasons.Firstly, it has recently announced that it has extended its contract with Formula One World Championship from 2021 to 2025, with the possibility of extending the contract further. In the latest half year, gross profits tallied £12m, yet the period saw just one release, a Formula One game. There is a good chance that the company can build on this franchise.Secondly, it has recently acquired Slightly Mad Studios. Among other things, the deal means a new video game based on the Fast and Furious movie franchise.Thirdly, the company is going digital. That means that the physical medium upon which its games were sold in the past is being replaced by digital delivery, carrying a much lower (almost zero) unit cost. This means that the company’s gross margins are likely to increase significantly – in its latest half year, gross margins increased by 89.0%Finally, hardware is getting stronger. The latest smartphones now offer game-playing capabilities that leave dedicated games machines from a few years ago in the shade. Despite the emergence of a video games market in smartphones, the PlayStation Four has already proven to be the second biggest selling games station in history, but its shelf-life is far from over. Now the hype machine is focusing on the PlayStation Five.For companies that specialise in racing games, such as Codemasters, processing speed and power is crucial – that is why its games are likely to get better and more popular.

Two years after the murder of Haitian journalist Jean Dominique, RSF and the Damocles Network deplore the “tradition of impunity” the Haitian media is a victim of.

first_img March 28, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two years after the murder of Haitian journalist Jean Dominique, RSF and the Damocles Network deplore the “tradition of impunity” the Haitian media is a victim of. to go further HaïtiAmericas November 14, 2019 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Haïti Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice Another journalist murdered in Haiti Help by sharing this information HaïtiAmericas Receive email alerts June 11, 2019 Find out more On 3 April, it will be two years since Jean Dominique, head of Radio Haiti Inter, was murdered – two years of obstacles to finding out the truth about the killing as part of a “tradition of impunity” aimed at stifling the media and denounced by RSF and the Damocles Network (which fights against impunity)… To spur the Haitian government into action, the two organisations have launched a radio campaign in Haiti and other countries. On 3 April, a message criticising the government’s attitude in the case will be broadcast by about 20 radio stations in Haiti, the United States, Canada and France. RSF and the Damocles Network have also made new recommendations to President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, notably urging him to reappoint as the chief investigator in the affair Judge Claudy Gassant, who was dropped early this year when his term expired. Impunity: deliberate intimidationDominique, Haiti’s best-known journalist and political analyst, was gunned down in the courtyard of his radio station on 3 April 2000, along with the station’s gatekeeper, Jean-Claude Louissant. The famously outspoken Dominique criticised former soldiers and Duvalierists, the country’s wealthy families and, not long before his death, those he suspected inside President Aristide’s Fanmi Lavalas (FL) party of wanting to “turn the party away from its original principles.” In an editorial broadcast on 19 October 1999, he strongly attacked Dany Toussaint, a leading FL figure. Dominique’s widow, Michèle Montas, is sure of one thing, that he husband was murdered because “he couldn’t be controlled.” Despite official assertions, nearly all state institutions have obstructed the investigation. The minister of justice has never given adequate protection to the investigating judge, despite him being threatened. The police have refused to execute arrest warrants and are even suspected of handing over a major suspect in the case, Panel Rénélus, to an angry crowd who chopped him to death on 9 November last year, soon after he was arrested. Rénélus was the second suspect to die shortly after being picked up in connection with the case. In June 2000, Jean-Wilner Lalanne, who is thought to have been a link-man between those who ordered the killing and those who carried it out, died in mysterious circumstances during a minor hospital operation after being arrested.Judge Gassant’s investigation pointed to Dany Toussaint, elected to the Senate in May 2000, as the main suspect in the murder, but his fellow senators obstructed the enquiry on several occasions, notably on 31 January this year when, after having had the matter under consideration for six months, they rejected the judge’s request to lift Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity, saying the paperwork was “incomplete” and that more information was needed. Their decision came a week after that of President Aristide not to renew the appointment of Gassant, whose seriousness and courage were recognised by all, and to hand the case over to a group of three other judges.”Grassroots organisations” of FL supporters, confident of not being punished at all, have stepped up attacks over the past year on journalists they consider too critical of the government and who they accuse of working for the opposition. About 40 journalists were threatened or physically attacked last year and 15 more such incidents have been recorded so far this year by the Association of Haitian Journalists (AJH). The government has rarely condemned these attacks. On the contrary, the lack of any serious investigation into them shows a clear intent, possibly by top government officials, to lump the media with the opposition so as to justify the attacks. The growing violence reached a climax last 3 December with the murder of journalist Brignol Lindor, of the Echo 2000 radio station in Petit-Goâve (southwest of Port-au-Prince). A report by the AJH said members of the pro-FL grassroots organisation Domi Nan Bwa admitted they killed him, but despite this they have still not been arrested. The media situation further deteriorated on 17 December, when there was an apparent attempted coup d’etat, after which armed supporters of President Aristide took to the streets and systematically attacked journalists they considered critical of the government. The atmosphere of lawlessness that day made seven radio stations stop broadcasting or suspend their news programmes and several opposition premises were burned by pro-FL demonstrators. With the president failing to disown the actions of his supporters, about 15 journalists chose to flee into exile abroad for their own safety.A radio campaign against impunityTo pressure the Haitian government into ending the “tradition of impunity” the Haitian press is a victim of, RSF and the Damocles Network have launched a radio campaign against impunity. A message in French and Creole criticising the authorities’ attitude in the Jean Dominique case will be broadcast by about 20 radio stations in Haiti, the United States, Canada and France. In Haiti, a dozen stations, including the main ones in Port-au-Prince, are already broadcasting it. It is a chance for these stations, several of whose journalists have been attacked or have gone into exile, to show that the battle against immunity does not just involve the family of Jean Dominique and Radio Haiti Inter. A dozen stations or relayed radio programmes in the Haitian community in the United States and Canada are also broadcasting the message. International stations such as Radio France International and the Voice of America have agreed to carry it too.Recommendations to the Haitian authoritiesRSF and the Damocles Network support the recommendations made to the Haitian authorities on 21 February by the Echo Voix Jean Dominique Foundation, which is campaigning for a full enquiry into the journalist’s killing. Concerning Dominique’s murder, RSF and the Damocles Network call for:- Reappointment of Judge Claudy Gassant.- Execution of arrest warrants issued for Richard “Cha Cha” Salomon (seen as Dany Toussaint’s right-hand man) and Toussaint’s bodyguard Franck Joseph, who have refused to appear before the investigating judge.- The lifting of Sen. Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity.- Revival of the enquiry into the death of Panel Rénélus, which seems to have been dropped, and the death of Jean-Wilner Lalanne.The two organisations also ask the Haitian authorities to:- Execute warrants issued for the arrest of members of Domi Nan Bwa who have admitted killing Brignol Lindor.- Firmly condemn any attack on press freedom and thoroughly investigate each incident so as to punish those responsible, whatever their political affiliation.- Begin an operation to confiscate weapons, starting with members of grassroots organisations.RSF and the Damocles Network note that on 11 January this year they called on the European Union and the US Congress to take individual sanctions against 24 Haitian officials who, by their actions or lack of them, are obstructing investigation of the murders of Jean Dominique and Brignol Lindor. The sanctions requested were refusal of transit or entry visas to the US and the EU for the 24 officials and their families and the freezing of any bank accounts they hold outside Haiti.

Two journalists being held for publishing internal security memo on terrorist threat

first_img NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News July 18, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists being held for publishing internal security memo on terrorist threat RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance RSF_en to go further Al Watan Al An’s most recent issue, published on 14 July, contained a series of stories by Ariri et and Hurmatallah that were headlined, “The secret reports behind Morocco’s state of alert.” One of the stories was based on a DGST memo – which was reproduced – urging all the security services to be vigilant after a video was posted online by a terrorist organisation that contained “a solemn call for jihad against all the Maghrebi governments, identifying Morocco by name.”Morocco raised its state of alert to the highest level on 6 July, but the interior ministry has given no precise information about the possible threats.In a statement carried by the main national TV station, prosecutor general Moulay Abdallah Alaoui Belghiti said he had ordered an investigation to find out how secret documents were leaked and who was responsible. The two journalists would be prosecuted for publishing “reports of a confidential nature linked to defence secrets,” he said, adding that other document found during the search would be used in evidence against them.Ariri and Hurmatallah, who are due to appear in court soon, were not allowed to see their lawyers during the preliminary investigation.

The internal memo published in the weekly seems not to have contained any confidential information as it only referred to online posts that anyone can access. While it is understandable that the authorities are trying to find out who leaked the memo, the journalists should not be turned into scapegoats.”Plain-clothes police arrested Ariri and Hurmatallah at their Casablanca homes at about 7 a.m. yesterday and took them to police headquarters for questioning. At mid-morning, about 20 police officers accompanied them to the Al Watan Al An office, where a search was carried out.

Interim General Manager Gurcharan Bawa gave an introduction, highlighting the utility’s history of reliable service and discussing the future of environmentally-responsible power.The students then received a first-hand account of what it takes to provide power to Pasadena.A member of the Glenarm Power Plant crew talked about the wide range of public power careers by explaining the diverse roles of PWP’s electric employees. Linemen, perhaps the most recognizable public power employees, also participated in the assembly by discussing their day-to-day tasks, demonstrating the equipment they often use in the field, and answering questions from interested students.Later in the assembly, each sixth grader (a total of 170 students) received an efficiency kit from the PWP- sponsored Living Wise Program, which provides a conservation curriculum that spans a three-to-six week period. Items provided in the efficiency kits encourage students to become at-home “efficiency auditors” with tools such as LED light bulbs, a digital thermometer to test the temperature of refrigerator or water heater, and more.“PWP is proud to kick-off Public Power week with an assembly that empowers each student to be Energy Ambassador in their home. Using the tools in the Efficiency kit, the students will learn how they can do their part to conserve and hopefully inspire them to find creative solutions for tomorrow’s challenges,” said Interim General Manager Gurcharan Bawa.Additionally, throughout the week, PWP will feature a social media campaign that highlights the benefits of having a community-owned utility. Each day will be dedicated to one facet of PWP’s reliable and affordable electric service.

A single goal might not sound unusual or special, but it was. The freshman scored to give Mayfield its first victory over Poly in 15 years. The win moved Mayfield up into a tie for second place, and in the hunt for a playoff spot.Mayfield Coach Calum Torrie: “Daria Young collected a pass and ended up the line toward the Poly goal. She cut inside and passed to Nadia. Nadia still had a bit to do, but she beat her defense, and then coolly slotted by the on-rushing goalkeeper from an acute angle, and from about 12 yards (out). The goal was huge for us this season, as it propelled us into a 4-way tie for second place. It was also a huge weight lifted after 15 years of ties, large defeats and close-fought losses.
