FanDuel outlines sports betting plans in US DFS Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 9th May 2018 | By contenteditor FanDuel has revealed its intentions to expand into sports betting should the US Supreme Court overturn the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Tech & innovation DFS AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: US FanDuel has revealed its intentions to expand into sports betting should the US Supreme Court overturn the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Nevada is currently the only state in which punters can legally wager on sports in the US, with PASPA blocking other states from offering regulated services. However, New Jersey is heading up an effort to overturn PASPA and should the Supreme Court rule in favour of the bid, this could open up the market to more states. Matt King, chief executive of daily fantasy sports (DFS) firm FanDuel, told Forbes that should New Jersey succeed in its effort, the company would look to launch its own sports betting service. Rival DFS operator DraftKings has already started work on preparing its own sports betting offering in the US by speaking with casinos in New Jersey about possible partnerships. “[A Supreme Court overturn] would mean we would get into sports betting,” King said. “This business is around fan engagement and helping fans feel closer to the things they like, and clearly sports betting is one way to help people to do that. “So it would be very logical for us to get into it; we have some ideas of how to make that experience better and ones that we feel will resonate with our users. “We think we’re uniquely positioned to fulfil that market demand.”Related articles: DraftKings eyes NJ casino partners for sports betting US sports betting ‘enormous’ opportunity – DraftKings CEO Tags: Fantasy Sports Email Address

Robert and John are travelers. They collect sculptures by local artists and bring them home. They have a keen eye for modernism and minimal design and they don’t settle for ordinary. They love cooking and they avoid the unnecessary. In building their home, rzlbd respects their curiosity for style. Save this picture!Courtesy of rzlbdA totem is sculptures within a sculpture. The totem in Totem House is a vertical gallery that exhibits John and Robert’s souvenirs from around the world. Each piece has been carefully measured and placed in a designated niche inside the Tower. An open wooden staircase connecting the three stories of the house gently circulates around the totem allowing one to observe the artworks from many different angles. During the day the skylight above the staircase naturally illuminates the totem, and at nighttime dedicated LED lights installed inside the niches light each piece. The totem naturally becomes the focal point in the house, as it is visible from every corner on all levels. Save this picture!Courtesy of rzlbdThe evolution of design was a simple geometrical obsession with squares and grids. Starting with ten 10’ x 10’ squares carefully assembled on the linear site, logical modules were then dedicated to essential rooms in the house. The squares not only define the interior rooms, but they also formulate the boundaries of the backyard patio, the landscape, the parking area and the covered entry to the house. The totem sits on the central square dividing the living/dining area from the kitchen on the ground floor and the two bedrooms on the second floor. Save this picture!Courtesy of rzlbdRobert and John’s kitchen could not be a typical urban kitchen, because they don’t have typical cooking habits. They passionately care for taste and they are minimal and chic. A gas burner cook-top with no hood on top was what they wanted to cook their food on. Except for the appliances everything is concealed behind the white cabinet doors that cover the wall from floor to ceiling. Save this picture!Courtesy of rzlbdOn the second floor the master bedroom is yet another manifesto of their style, with the ensuite and the bedroom entirely merged together and washed with natural light, the challenge was to define the wet zones without disturbing them with drywalls. Beautiful marble tiles separate the shower and the bathtub area from the rest of the hardwood floor. The freestanding bathtub installed in the corner of the room has a peaceful corner view to the courtyard. 2013 Area: 1600 ft² Area: 1600 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” “COPY” Year: ArchDaily Save this picture!Courtesy of rzlbdThe exterior of the house is a monolithic charcoal brick mass. Two small blocks on the north and south facade of this perfect mass have been extracted and cladded with wood. The small wooden corner creates an interesting deception where one imagines the wood to be the core material of the brick mass, like a bitten apple exposing the color of its flesh. The harmonious contrast of the charcoal brick and the wood with the immediate neighbors is tied to the surroundings with a humble design for the landscape allowing the neighbors to perfectly frame the house.

Lewis became Chief Executive in 2011 and oversaw changes to the organisation following the Review of the Fundraising Self-Regulation including a merger with the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) and the award of Chartered status in 2020. Peter Lewis said: “It has been a huge privilege to lead the Chartered Institute of Fundraising for the last 9 and a half years, and I feel enormously proud of what the staff, volunteer and Trustee team have achieved during that time.“At my age, my dad took time to step back, take stock of his life, and consider what he most valued, then moved forward in another direction. With his death from Covid late last year, I decided it was time to follow his lead and resigned from my role as CEO of the Chartered Institute on March 4th.“Having achieved Chartered status and come through the pandemic we need a fresh strategy that addresses the culture change we all agree is necessary for the sector. It is right for a new Chief Executive to lead that process and be charged with delivering against it.“I look forward to supporting Claire and the Trustees in putting in place the plans to recruit for my successor which will begin in the coming weeks.” “My fellow trustees and I are very grateful to Peter for leading the Chartered Institute for almost 10 years. Peter has helped the sector progress significantly during his tenure, including managing us through a time when our fundraising practices were under intense scrutiny, establishing fundraising apprenticeships and achieving Chartered status for the Institute.“As we enter a new era it is time to begin our search for a new leader who will continue to develop the fundraising profession and our culture.“We will shortly be starting the recruitment for his successor.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising Peter Lewis has today announced his decision to resign his position.

Corn Board member of the National Corn Growers Association and Howard County farmer Denny Maple says corn growers feel better about MFP 2.0 than version 1.“We’re grateful to the administration for the support that they’re giving the farmers for our imbalance in trade right now, and also with them considering corn as important that we got a little bit more piece of the pie this time than what we did the last time. It’s always good, but we still want trade; trade is key.”A more pressing issue this growing season than trade has been the weather. A lot of late planting and replanting occurred across the state, but Maple says his crop is getting caught up.“We’ve got corn that’s pollinating that’s been in the ground 9 weeks and I think that’s quite remarkable that the crops are able to compensate for our growing season. We’ve had some good temperatures here in the last 2 or 3 weeks that have sped the crop up.”In this strange year, everyone is trying to figure out what kind of yield they might expect from this crop. Maple says, “I’ve been at this for a long time and I just can’t put my finger on any year that we can compare this to to try to get a handle on what kind of crop we’re going to have.” By Eric Pfeiffer – Aug 7, 2019

Maria Torres(HOUSTON) — As the search continued Tuesday for a Bengal tiger that sparked panic in a Houston residential neighborhood, a lawyer for the man arrested in connection with the incident denied that his client is the big cat’s owner and accused police of playing a cat-and-mouse game that has jeopardized his agreement to help locate the animal.Victor Hugo Cuevas, 28, was taken into custody Monday night on a felony charge of evading police, who alleged he fled in a vehicle with the tiger after it wandered out of his Houston home on Sunday evening and prompted a flood of 911 calls from concerned residents, including an off-duty law enforcement officer who pulled a gun on the tiger.Cuevas’ attorney, Michael Elliott, told ABC News on Tuesday that Cuevas was about to voluntarily surrender and had agreed to help direct police to the tiger and its real owner but that he was betrayed at the last minute and arrested at his mother’s home in Fort Bend County southeast of Houston.“We made arrangements to surrender at 8:15 (p.m.) and we were working on everything together,” Elliott said. “We were assisting them by giving them some information about the owner and how we could potentially locate the owner and correspondingly the tiger.”“Then, behind my back, they just went out and arrested my client 15 minutes before he was to leave the house to go turn himself in,” Elliott said.Elliott said he plans to visit Cuevas later Tuesday at the Fort Bend County Jail, where he is being held without bail, and decide whether they are still interested in helping police locate the tiger.“We’re still interested in helping, but when somebody just flat lies to you and plays games, it makes you question whether they’re reliable to even work with,” Elliott said.Houston Police Department officials have yet to respond to ABC News’ request for comment about Elliott’s allegations of a double cross.“The tiger does not belong to Mr. Cuevas. It absolutely does not,” Elliott said.During a news conference on Monday, Houston Police Commander Ron Borza said Cuevas was previously arrested in July 2020 and charged with murder stemming from a 2017 fatal shooting outside a sushi restaurant in Fort Bend County, Texas. He said Cuevas was free on $250,000 bail.Neighbors of Cuevas began calling 911 about 8 p.m. Sunday, reporting that a Bengal tiger wearing a collar was freely roaming around their neighborhood.An off-duty Waller County, Texas, sheriff’s deputy responded to the scene after getting an alert on a Nextdoor app.Video taken by a witness showed a man exiting a house on Ivy Wall Drive and pleading with the deputy not to shoot the tiger. The footage then showed the man grabbing the tiger by its collar and escorting it back into the home. Elliott confirmed the man was Cuevas.Borza alleged that Cuevas put the tiger in his Jeep Cherokee and drove off as Houston police officers were arriving at the scene. He said a brief pursuit ensued, but Cuevas managed to get away.Prior to his arrest, Cuevas was charged with felony evading police.Elliott declined to say why the tiger was at Cuevas’ home if he is not the owner of the animal.“You saw the video where he’s familiar with the tiger and knows how to handle a tiger but that doesn’t mean the tiger is his,” Elliott said. “It doesn’t mean that he’s the one who took the tiger away from the house. And it doesn’t mean that he knows anything now, except for who the individual is who has the tiger and or the whereabouts of the tiger.”He cited video showing at least one other person standing in the doorway of Cuevas’ home at the time of the incident.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
