The bank’s Digital Growth Fund is hoping to invest $450m in the site, according the Financial Times. The Twitter stake, which has not been finalised, would account for around a third of the $1.22bn raised by the fund to date. The fund is also considering investing a third of the cash in online games firm Zynga.In its recent financing round, Twitter was valued at $3.7bn, after selling $200m worth of shares. The site has 175m registered users who send 95m “tweets” of up to 140 characters every day. Google and Facebook are both said to be in talks to buy Twitter for up to $10bn (£6.23bn).

New Iowa bill proposes online and mobile sports betting

first_img Regions: US Iowa 20th February 2019 | By contenteditor Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting DFS Tags: Fantasy Sports Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Iowa lawmakers are to consider a new bill that would legalise online and mobile sports betting, as well as fantasy sports contests, in the US state.Introduced by Senator Roby Smith, chair of the Committee on State Government, Senate Study Bill 1168 would allow for wagering on professional and collegiate sporting events at Iowa’s 19 casinos, racetracks and other gambling facilities.Consumers wishing to bet online or via a mobile would first need to register in-person at a licensed betting venue. Players would need to be at least 21 years old in order to place legal wagers and take part in fantasy sports contests.Venues would need to apply for a licence to offer online and mobile wagering, but the bill does not state how much the licences will cost, with the General Assembly to decide on this at a later date.Senate Study Bill 1168 also omits information as to how long the betting licences will be valid for, but does state that operators will have to pay an as-yet undecided annual renewal fee as part of their licence agreement.The bill does, go into a little more detail in terms of the licences for offering fantasy sports, with these licences to run for maximum of three years. Information on application fees for these licences is absent from the bill, however.Meanwhile, the new bill includes plans for a tax on sports wagering net receipts and to provide for the allocation of revenues derived from tax, but does not say what rate it will set.Language for tax on fantasy sports contests is similar in that the bill intends to tax adjusted revenue from such activities, but does not say how much licensees will have to pay.Senate Study Bill 1168 does also not include any form of commitment to an integrity or royalty fee for sports leagues. However, the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission would be allowed to share information of any abnormal betting patterns to the leagues to help with their own integrity efforts.Other measures in the bill include the establishment of a gaming regulatory fund, consisting of fees collected and deposited by licensees.SB 1168 now joins eight other sports wagering bills that are currently active in the state. The Iowa legislative session is due to run until May 3.Last month, William Hill agreed a new partnership with the Prairie Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Iowa in anticipation of the state passing laws to legalise sports betting.The bookmaker will serve as the casino’s official sportsbook operator, subject to the passage of regulations in the state. William Hill will operate an 8,600 square foot sportsbook within the casino, near its existing racing centre.Image: Tony Webster Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter New Iowa bill proposes online and mobile sports betting DFS Iowa lawmakers are to consider a new bill that would legalise online and mobile sports betting, as well as fantasy sports contests, in the US state.last_img read more

Attorney for Amber Guyger retained by officer who shot Jonathan Price

first_imgTexas RangersBy IVAN PEREIRA and MARC NATHANSON, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Texas police officer charged with murder in the shooting death of Jonathan Price on Saturday has retained the attorney who defended Dallas officer Amber Guyger against similar charges last year.Wolfe City police officer Shaun Lucas has retained attorney Robert Rogers as he faces murder charges for the Oct. 3 shooting of Price while responding to a domestic dispute call at a gas station convenience store.Rogers represented Guyger when she was convicted of murder after she accidentally entered the apartment of her upstairs neighbor, Botham Jean, and fatally shot him when she mistook him for an intruder, on Sept. 6, 2018. Rogers argued that Guyger perceived Jean as a deadly threat and thus committed no crime.She was sentenced last October to 10 years in prison.In a statement, the attorney contended that Lucas, 22, opened fire at Price, who was unarmed, because he resisted arrest.“Mr. Price did not claim to be an uninvolved, innocent party,” Rogers said in the statement. “Officer Lucas told Mr. Price he was detained, and Mr. Price resisted. After Mr. Price refused repeated instructions and physically resisted, Officer Lucas deployed his taser and continued to give Mr. Price instructions. Mr. Price resisted the effects of the taser and attempted to take it away from Officer Lucas. Officer Lucas only discharged his weapon in accordance with Texas law when he was confronted with an aggressive assailant who was attempting to take his taser.”However according to a statement from the Texas Rangers, who are investigating the incident, Price, 31, “resisted in a non-threatening posture and began walking away” when Lucas deployed his Taser and then discharged his gun.“The preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable,” the statement said.Price’s family says Price, who is Black, was attempting to break up the domestic disturbance and didn’t threaten anyone.“He noticed a man assaulting a woman and he intervened,” civil rights attorney Lee Merritt said in a Facebook post. “When police arrived, I’m told, he raised his hands and attempted to explain what was going on. Police fired Tasers at him and when his body convulsed from the electrical current, they ‘perceived a threat’ and shot him to death.”Price worked as a Wolfe City employee and a physical trainer, according to his family.Lucas, who is white, was arrested Monday night and held on $1 million bond.“It’s just — this is just — I can’t wrap my brain around this,” Lucas’ stepfather told Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA-TV. “He’s a good kid. He’s devastated. He’s devastated for everybody involved.”The Hunt County District Attorney’s office said Tuesday that the investigation into the incident is continuing.“Though an arrest has been made, our office has not received the case from the Texas Rangers as it remains an active and ongoing investigation,” the DA’s office said in a statement. “As is customary, this case will be filed with our office once the investigation is complete. Until then, the thorough work of the Texas Rangers and others will continue.”Price’s family told WFAA Tuesday that they hoped Lucas would face justice.“My son got life. I want him to get life [in prison],” Price’s mother, Marcella Louis, said of Lucas. “And think about it — he’s going to have time to think about it. My son is not.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Number of managing agents to dramatically reduce over next decade

first_imgHome » News » Associations & Bodies » Number of managing agents to dramatically reduce over next decade previous nextAssociations & BodiesNumber of managing agents to dramatically reduce over next decadeARMA says its research reveals an ageing industry and principals who often take no pay to keep their companies afloat.Nigel Lewis21st June 201901,146 Views Managing agents are to face a dramatic reduction in their ranks over the next ten years, it has been claimed by the sector’s largest membership organisation.The Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA) says that although the industry is dominated by hundreds of smaller companies managing between 500 and 2,000 residential properties, this is set to significantly reduce.ARMA claims that a large proportion of the 870 companies within the property management sector are run by ageing principals, many of whom do not pay themselves a salary to keep their operations profitable and who are likely therefore to eventually sell up in increasing numbers to larger, corporate competitors.“The fact that profitability is reliant on the owner effectively working for free, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that there will be a dramatic consolidation of the industry as owners sell up, retire or leave the sector,” says ARMA.OpportunityBut it also claims that the government’s proposed abolition or severe restriction of ground rents, and the more widespread introduction of freehold, present opportunities for managing agents.Also, ARMA claims that many block landlords will exit the sector when ground rents are reformed, leaving agents in a more prominent role, as will the increase in commonhold, a system that also relies heavily on agents.ARMA says 25,000 people are employed within the sector, which contributes half a trillion pounds to the UK economy via VAT payments, National Insurance and also staff and corporate tax contributions.It also says there are 1.7 million leasehold homes in the UK, 1.4 million of which are flats.ground rents Leasehold Reform ARMA Association of Residential Managing Agents June 21, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
