Sports betting has already been introduced in New Jersey, Delaware and Mississippi since the Supreme Court’s PASPA ruling, with West Virginia, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania set to follow in the coming months. According to Nielsen Sports, 44% of sports bettors are adults under the age of 35, as opposed to 31% of the general population. Some 29% percent of bettors earn a household income of more than $100,000, almost double the proportion of the general population.It also found that 38% of existing bettors would completely switch to legal methods if they had the chance, will 33% would do so in part. Some 29% would not change their bookie regardless of legal alternatives.“The Nielsen Sports data supports what we’ve long expected: access to legal sports wagering will increase fan engagement in major sport contests and enable a significant revenue generation opportunity for major sports leagues and teams,” said Sara Slane, senior vice-president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association.“Expanding access to legal sports betting will bring millennial audiences back to sports broadcasts and stadiums, which is a huge benefit for sport enterprises across the country.“However, this potential will only be realised with proper policy frameworks that empower consumers with competitive odds, access to all bets and the ability to tap into modern platforms including mobile. Without this focus on consumers, the illegal market will continue to thrive.”Nielsen Sports surveyed more than 1,000 adult sports fans – including fans of the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL – and self-identified sports bettors nationwide, identifying demographics and consumption habits to quantify the value of the legal sports betting market.In data that is food for thought for the sports leagues, the AGA discovered that bettors tend to be younger, more affluent and better educated than average fans. Some 62% of NFL fans who are bettors went to college and 31% earn more than $100,000, compared to figures of 58% and 23% of non-betting fans.Among NBA fans, 54% of bettors are aged between 18-34 while 30% earn more than $100,000 compared to 40% and 26% among non-betting fans. The NBA last month signed up MGM Resorts as its official betting partner. Image: Erin Khoo Email Address

November 14, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court commutes Galkin’s sentence of one year’s hard labour Organisation RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” News News News The Chelyabinsk regional court yesterday commuted journalist German Galkin’ssentence of one year’s hard labour to a suspended sentence of six months.Galkin, who was convicted of defaming two members of the Chelyabinskregional government, has appealed against his conviction to the supremecourt.______Reporters Without Borders has strongly protested at a Russian court decision on 7 October 2003 to uphold a one-year forced labour sentence against journalist German Galkin for libelling local officials in the Urals.The decision to confirm an earlier sentence handed down on 15 August was taken by the Kalininsky district court in the Cheliabinsk region.” The sentence at the first hearing was shocking but it could have been seen simply as a warning. Confirming this sentence on appeal shows that the judicial system really wants German Galkin to serve such a sentence, which is completely unacceptable “,said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders.The organisation has urged German Chancellor Gerhardt Schroeder who meets in summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the central Urals town of Yekaterinburg on the 8-9 October, to voice his dismay at the case. He has also been asked to raise the issue of risks facing Russian journalists because of articles in the penal code that provide for prison sentences for libel.German Galkin, deputy editor of the daily Vecherny Cheliabinsk, publisher of the weekly Rabochaya Gazeta and head of the local branch of the opposition Liberal Russia party was first sentenced on 15 August 2003.He was accused under article 129-2 and 130 of the penal code of the Russian federation for libelling two deputy governors of Cheliabinsk, Konstantin Bochkarev and Andreï Kosilov.Kosilov sued in June last year after publication of three articles in Rabochaya Gazeta that accused the governor Piotr Sumin and his aides of embezzlement – “The Real Sumin” (16 April), “Government Patience” (8 February) and “Sumin’s Health” (12 February). Galkin frequently criticised local officials and Governor Sumin in his articles and was physically attacked in front of his Cheliabinsk home on 14 June 2002.The organisation recalled that under Article 130 (paragraphs 2 and 3) of the criminal code libel was punishable with up to one year‚s imprisonment with hard labour and that under Article 129 (paragraphs 2 and 3) a jail term of up to three years with hard labour.

WABC(NEW YORK) — A New York City nanny has been found guilty of the murders of two young children who were stabbed to death in their idyllic Upper West Side apartment.Yoselyn Ortega had worked for Marina and Kevin Krim for two years when she killed 6-year-old Lulu Krim and 2-year-old Leo Krim on Oct. 25, 2012.She was found guilty on two counts each of first-degree murder and second-degree murder.She had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.“It was not a decision we reached lightly or easily,” one juror, David Curtis, told reporters, as he was overcome with emotion. “There was some raised voices and a lot of tears. But I think we all feel good that we addressed all of these issues and fairly weighed everything that was presented to us.”Kevin Krim declined to speak at a news conference, but Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. turned to Kevin Krim and said, “Our hearts go out to you today as it has every day of the last five years. As a father of two myself, I cannot imagine the pain you have felt and continue to feel.”Vance said he hopes the verdict will give the family an opportunity to heal.The day of the crime, Marina Krim came home after taking her then-3-year-old daughter, Nessie, to a swim class and opened her bathroom door to find “the bloodied, lifeless bodies of her 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son … their eyes open, covered in blood,” Assistant District Attorney Courtney Groves said in opening statements last month.Ortega, who was standing in the bathroom, then stabbed herself in the neck, according to Groves.Marina Krim grabbed Nessie and ran out of the apartment and the doorman called 911, prosecutors said. Marina Krim, who testified for the prosecution, said that moment she was screaming uncontrollably and saying, “I just saw my kids dead.”“I was destroyed,” Marina Krim said on the stand. “She killed my best friends.”Ortega’s defense attorney Valerie Van Leer-Greenberg had argued that her client was mentally ill and was “suffering from severe psychosis” and “dissociation” at the time of the killings.Ortega is set to be sentenced May 14.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Accurate biological models are critical to predict biotic responses to climate change and human‐caused disturbances. Current understanding of organismal responses to change stems from studies over relatively short timescales. However, most projections lack long‐term observations incorporating the potential for transgenerational phenotypic plasticity and genetic adaption, the keys to resistance. Here, we describe unexpected temporal compensatory responses in biomineralization as a mechanism for resistance to altered environmental conditions and predation impacts in a calcifying foundation species. We evaluated exceptional archival specimens of the blue mussel Mytilus edulis collected regularly between 1904 and 2016 along 15 km of Belgian coastline, along with records of key environmental descriptors and predators. Contrary to global‐scale predictions, shell production increased over the last century, highlighting a protective capacity of mussels for qualitative and quantitative trade‐offs in biomineralization as compensatory responses to altered environments. We also demonstrated the role of changes in predator communities in stimulating unanticipated biological trends that run contrary to experimental predictive models under future climate scenarios. Analysis of archival records has a key role for anticipating emergent impacts of climate change.
