RITA releases draft plan for NZ racing to return in May

first_img Topics: Sports betting Strategy Horse racing Email Address Tags: Race Track and Racino New Zealand’s Racing Industry Transition Agency (RITA) has outlined a draft plan for a resumption of racing following the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, with an initial resumption of greyhound racing on 11 May and thoroughbred racing on 3 July.Harness racing, meanwhile, would return on 29 May according to the schedule.The draft plan, under which the number of racing venues in use in New Zealand would reduce from 36 to 12, in order to limit travel, and all races will occur behind closed doors, has been issued to the New Zealand racing industry for consultation.The consultation will end on 28 April, with RITA planning to issue a final calendar on 4 May.“The draft calendar reflects the industry’s commitment to ensure any resumption of racing includes measures to restrict travel, minimise interactions and keep all participants safe,“ Dean McKenzie, executive chair of RITA, said.McKenzie added that the plans are based on the assumption that New Zealand’s government will reduce its Alert Level from 4 (lockdown) to 3 (restrict) or 2 (reduce).“RITA is actively working with a number of government organisations to ensure the industry’s protocols and rules meet Alert Level 2 and 3 restrictions prior to the resumption of any racing,” McKenzie continued.“These discussions have benefited from the response prior to moving to Alert Level 4 and from Australia, where racing has continued under strict restrictions.”Under the draft plan, RITA would run 9.25 greyhound meetings a week at six venues from early May. Meetings scheduled for the Invercargill and Dunedin racetracks on the southern end of the country’s South Island will be moved to Christchurch.Harness Racing would return on 29 May, with 37 meetings at four venues.Thoroughbred racing would be the last form of racing to return, with 13 meetings at six venues starting on 3 July.All aspects of the draft plan are subject to race meets meeting relevant COVID-19 protocols.After initially moving events behind closed doors, RITA suspended all racing in New Zealand last month after the government raised the Alert Level to 4, necessitating a nationwide lockdown.RITA is a transitional body founded last year to oversee racing in New Zealand until the country’s second Racing Reform Bill comes into effect and replaces RITA with TAB NZ. RITA replaced the New Zealand Racing Board in July 2019.McKenzie became RITA’s executive director at the start of the year after John Allen resigned from the post.

After all, the yields on dividend stocks are significantly higher than the income return on cash, while dividend growth could widen their difference over the coming years.However, having some cash can be a good idea. It can provide peace of mind and help to smooth out the volatile performance of the stock market. As such, relying on your shares for an income and having an emergency cash fund could prove to be the best means of utilising your capital in retirement.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…Return prospectsAt the present time, interest rates are relatively low. They could move even lower in the near term as a result of the uncertain outlook for the world economy. As such, seeking to generate a passive income from cash savings is unlikely to provide you with financial freedom in older age. It would require a large amount of capital to generate only a modest income, for example.Dividend stocks, meanwhile, appear to be highly attractive at the present time. The recent pullback in the stock market due to ongoing fears surrounding the spread of coronavirus means that many shares now offer higher yields than they have done in recent months. This may make them more attractive to income-seeking investors – especially since in many cases they offer the prospect of long-term dividend growth due to improving financial outlooks.Therefore, focusing the majority of your capital on income shares seems to be a worthwhile means of obtaining a generous passive income in older age.Cash appealWhile cash may not offer strong return potential, it provides a number of other benefits which mean that it could be worth holding on a modest scale in retirement.For example, it is far less risky than holding dividend shares. The value of your cash savings may not rise at a fast pace in the long run, but it is not subject to falls in its value. This can help to smooth out the returns of the stock market and provide peace of mind for those periods where the financial prospects of your dividend stocks are somewhat challenging.In addition, cash is a highly liquid asset which can provide security against unexpected costs. Although shares are also highly liquid in many cases, you may not wish to sell them to pay for costs such as housing repairs, which means that having some cash available is likely to be a sensible move.Balanced portfolioDue to the return potential on offer, generating an income from dividends seems to be a better idea than aiming to live off the interest from cash savings. However, having a minor portion of your capital in savings could be a shrewd move which provides peace of mind and the capacity to overcome unexpected events in retirement.

In the Algarve, the south of Portugal, the transition from the coast to the hilly midlands is characterized by an ascending landscape. Historical agricultural structures, such as vineyards and orchards form an idyllic setting. We designed a holiday home for a Dutch principal on one of these typical plots with an old citrus- and olive orchard. The main focus point of the design are the life outdoors, the sun, the fantastic view over the ocean and the gathering around family and friends.Save this picture!© René de WitThe house is situated on the highest point of the plot. It consists of three different volumes each with a kinked roof and a specific function: living area, swimming pool and guest house. The different volumes and roof surfaces are slightly shifted in relation to each other, thus following the scope of het plot. The residence is built with authentic Portuguese materials and techniques, used in a modern way. From afar the building seems to merge with its surroundings due to the different roofs, heights, materials and colors. Save this picture!© René de WitIf one approaches the house by the long driveway dangling through the orchard, the building looks tall and introvert. The fairly closed white stucco wall protects its guests from cold winter winds and provides privacy towards the higher situated neighbors. Behind this wall the building opens itself towards the sun and the surrounding nature. A firm wooden structure bears the different roofs, lifting them slightly above the walls. Due to this tempered sunlight enters the house at every point of the day, creating vibrant spaces. Large overhangs and great glass facades make the transition between interior and exterior subtle, focusing on the life outside. The living area and guesthouse are connected through a long lazy stair descending along the swimming pool. The swimming pool with its open roof structure and spacious terraces is the central point in the building, connecting all different functions and spaces. Save this picture!© René de WitLife in sunny Portugal takes place around the swimming pool and terraces with the shade always nearby due to different roofs. The elegant house always provides a great view over the historical orchard and a bright look at the ocean.

Volleyball can’t sustain lead, fall to Kansas State 3-1

first_imgAnother series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award + posts Caroline Durham Twitter printMiddle blocker Sarah Swanson (34) led TCU with a .625 hitting clip, producing six kills. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com.After winning the first set, TCU volleyball fell in three-straight sets to Kansas State, losing the match 3-1. The loss drops the Frogs to 0-2 in conference play. Libero Berklie Baker delivered one of the best defensive performances of her career, finishing with a career-high 23 digs.The Frogs opened the match with a sharp offensive attack. They delivered 16 kills in the first set, seven of which came from middle blocker Katie Clark and five from first-year outside hitter Audrey Nalls. As a team, TCU hit .375, its best first-set hitting percentage of the season.Laying it on the Wildcats early, the Frogs hardly kept them in striking distance, winning the first set 25-15.The second set started with a kill from KSU, but the Frogs were quick to strike back. The teams traded shots, tying the score at 17. Mistakes made by TCU’s defense combined with the Wildcats’ offense execution led to a 25-19 takeover by KSU.The next set would prove to be even worse defensively for the Frogs. The set began with the teams trading shots until Kansas State’s offense exploded with a 20-9 run. It led to a 25-14 win, putting TCU behind 2-1.The final set was riddled with errors by both teams.TCU claimed a 7-4 lead off of three blocks, two by the hands of Clark and Afedo Manyang. Kansas State responded with an 11-3 run to seize control of the set. The Frogs defended three match points to pull within one, but the Wildcats capitalized on the next point to win the set 25-23 and the match.Outside hitter Ashley Waggle produced a career-high 10 kills in the contest.Next, TCU will host the Texas Longhorns at 8 p.m. Wednesday at home.   Caroline Durhamhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/caroline-durham/ TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Previous articleTexas GOP retirements increase as state slowly becomes more competitiveNext articleSenior sheds light on mental illnesses Caroline Durham RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Volleyball swept at SMU Twittercenter_img ReddIt Facebook Linkedin ReddIt TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Caroline Durham is a Journalism major from Fort Worth, Texas she is passionate about sports, her family, friends and dog, Ben!

RSF lodges ECHR complaint over German foreign intelligence agency’s mass surveillance

first_img May 31, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU “The excessive surveillance practices of the BND cast doubt on the confidentiality of digital communication and thus undermine a basic prerequisite for journalistic research. German jurisdiction effectively makes defence against this impossible,” said RSF Germany’s executive director Christian Mihr. “Now it is up to the European Court of Human Rights to ensure that the fundamental right to legal protection against the BND’s groundless and disproportionate surveillance is enforced.” The Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig, the competent court of first and last instance in Germany, rejected on 14 December 2016 the lawsuit brought by RSF (http://ogy.de/fyew). The Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe then refused to admit RSF’s constitutional complaint against this decision on 26 April 2017 on the grounds that RSF had failed to adequately demonstrate that the organisation was directly affected by the BND’s surveillance (http://ogy.de/62fl). The Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig has already rejected similar lawsuits against the BND in the past on the grounds that the plaintiffs could not demonstrate that they were personally affected by the measures. However, it is practically impossible to provide proof of such surveillance because the secrecy of the BND’s activities means that plaintiffs generally do not know whether they are or were under surveillance. Another part of the original lawsuit is still pending with the Federal Administrative Court. It is directed against the metadata analysis system “VerAS”, which the BND has been using since 2002 without any legal basis to gather call detail records on telephone calls involving a foreign element. The judges at the Leipzig court separated this part of the lawsuit from the rest last December and demanded clarification from the BND (http://t1p.de/qsk5). At the hearing, the BND’s legal representatives explained that VerAS was just one of around 25 BND databases. RSF had submitted the lawsuit against the BND to the Federal Administrative Court on 30 June 2015 (http://t1p.de/jco7). Lawyer Niko Härting has represented RSF in the case. In the complaint lodged with the ECHR, RSF Germany asserts that its right to privacy of correspondence as well as its right to freedom of expression and information protected under Articles 8 and 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights are being violated. This is de facto disproportionate and groundless mass surveillance, since the intelligence agency’s practically unlimited access and extremely broad search criteria lead to surveillance on a scale that far exceeds the alleged purpose of the measures. GERMAN RULINGS ON BND SURVEILLANCE VIOLATE RIGHT TO EFFECTIVE REMEDY In addition, RSF Germany asserts that its right to effective remedy (under Article 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights) has been violated because the vast majority of those affected are not informed even after the fact that their emails have been recorded and examined. Even the general public is informed about the surveillance measures – via the annual reports of the Parliamentary Control Panel, the German Bundestag’s intelligence oversight committee – only after the protocols documenting the deletion of emails that were ultimately categorised as “non-relevant for intelligence purposes” have been erased. Despite this, German courts only admit lawsuits and constitutional complaints against the surveillance if the plaintiff can provide real proof that they are directly affected by the measures – which is impossible under the aforementioned circumstances. (http://t1p.de/j7ew) THE BND’S PRACTICES UNDERMINE CRITICISM OF SURVEILLANCE IN REPRESSIVE STATES Considering all that is known about the scale of intelligence surveillance of signals between Germany and abroad as well as about the search criteria used by the BND, RSF Germany has to assume that a significant number of its emails were gathered and subjected to closer analysis – and that these surveillance practices are disproportionate and not covered by Germany’s G10 Law (which regulates limitations on the constitutional confidentiality of mail and telecommunications). Many journalists from Germany as well as from authoritarian states like Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and China contact RSF Germany with confidential information and communicate with the organisation about matters that are worthy of protection on a regular basis. If the BND examines such communications in the context of its mass surveillance, these journalists can no longer rely on their enquiries and matters remaining confidential. With its excessive surveillance practices, the BND is not just undermining the protection of sources as a key element of press freedom in a democracy. It is also undermining the credibility of Germany’s demands that authoritarian regimes respect media freedom, as well as robbing journalists in these countries of an advocate in their fight against surveillance and other forms of repression by their governments. The reform of the BND law passed in the autumn of 2015 which regulates the BND’s powers to gather signals intelligence from foreign targets located abroad (called the “Act for Foreign-Foreign Signals Intelligence Gathering”) has no impact on the points of contention in the lawsuit. (For further information visit http://ogy.de/75j6) Germany currently ranks 16th out of the 180 countries on the World Press Freedom Index FURTHER INFORMATION: – Written complaint submitted to the ECHR by RSF Germany: http://t1p.de/j7ew / – More about the state of press freedom in Germany: https://rsf.org/en/germany Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is lodging a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights(ECHR) over the mass surveillance practices of Germany’s foreign intelligence agency BND.
