Virginia subcommittee approves casino betting licence amendment

first_img Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Regulation Online sports betting Retail sports betting Virginia legalised sports betting in April 2020, after state lawmakers amended a bill to factor in changes requested by Governor Ralph Northam. The market is expected to open soon, with a series of affiliates, payment providers and data suppliers also receiving authorisation last week. The Virginia House Subcommittee on Gaming has approved an amendment, HB1847, that means the state’s proposed land-based casinos would not count against the limit on sports betting licensees in the state. Read the full story on iGB North America. 20th January 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Earlier this month, Delegate Mark D Sickles, the author of last year’s sports betting bill, put forward HB1847. The amendment makes it clear that a sports betting permit issued to a land-based casino operator will not count against the maximum of 12 permits that may be issued.  Virginia subcommittee approves casino betting licence amendment When the market opens, online betting will be legal, while retail bets may be taken at sports venues. Land-based casinos may also take bets, but as these were only legalised in 2019, none are currently open.

Since 1995, an industrial area west of the railroad that runs through ‘s-Hertogenbosch is being redeveloped into a new premium residential quarter. An occasional industrial relic, like the saw-tooth complex, has been included in the development plan. Winning the architects selection in 2016, led to the design for a residential building on the smallest plot in the quarter. The 1050 m2 plot on the intersection of the Bordeslaan and the Vijverlaan is tucked away behind the saw-tooth complex, and next to the six-meter-high bridge made of Corten steel that crosses the railways to connect the quarter with the historic city centre. To the west, a new hotel will shield the residential area from the railway.Save this picture!© Rene de WitSave this picture!Plan – Third and fifthSave this picture!© Rene de WitThe commercial plinth, with its increased storey height, tightly follows the plot’s boundaries. On top of this plinth a 10-storey residential block has been designed, featuring a varied apartment programme of 7 sizes, ranging from small 49 m2 studios to large apartments of nearly 150 m2. The apartments follow the lines of the Vijverlaan and Bordeslaan, creating space in the lee of the block for a community roof garden on the first floor. The first four floors slowly fan out from the Vijverlaan to hover over the Bordeslaan, eventually reaching a columnless cantilever of over 10 meters. This provides the building with a prominent face towards the Paleiskwartier. The entire façade of this 7-layer accent on the Bordeslaan has been executed in a white concrete with large glass fronts. The other façades manifest a subtle play of horizontal bands and a grid with vertical fillings of brick, window frames and aluminium panels.Save this picture!© Rene de WitThe horizontal bands run all the way around the building. Cast in white concrete with subtle shadow edges, the bands designate the separate storeys. Cantilevering balconies spring forth from these concrete bands. Pilaster strips built with a soft-yellow double Waal-format bricks form vertical frames with recessed brickwork penants positioned inside them. These penants are masoned in a brick of the same colour, but smaller in size, with a false joint that here allows for a finer stack bond to appear. Aluminium window frames and panels in a light bronze colour fill in the openings. The use of high-quality materials and careful detailing gives the building an outstanding character. The eleven-storey complex with the twisted tower has attained its contour in the new urban landscape of the Paleiskwartier.Save this picture!© Rene de WitProject gallerySee allShow lessVDG Van Dijk Groep Office Building / DenkkamerSelected ProjectsSeamlessly Continuous: NEXXA, A New Door Handle by Zaha Hadid DesignArticlesProject locationAddress:Bordeslaan 510, 5223 MX ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

As coronavirus spreads disability activists fight for their rights

first_imgNew York“The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has reminded us that from one moment to the next anyone can become a person with a disability,” Nadina LaSpina told this reporter. LaSpina is a wheelchair user, a prominent disability rights activist and  author of “Such a Pretty Girl: A Story of Struggle, Empowerment, and Disability Pride.”Disabled people for centuries have had to worry about every aspect of their/our health to survive and participate in whatever activities we can manage to navigate, despite the obstacles put in our way by ableist prejudice and discrimination.Drive-through testing is only one difficulty posed for people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here, a testing site in Philadelphia on March 13.Now this pandemic has put a spotlight on our collective vulnerability, especially of those who follow some of the disability community’s regimen of intensely observing every aspect of our health.LaSpina is in Miami recovering from a broken hip. She complained that the official U.S. 6-foot social distancing rule discriminates against people with disabilities, who depend on home health aides to wash and dress them and do other intimate care, which her late spouse Danny Robert had needed. LaSpina, in a “high risk” category for COVID-19, shared how her Miami doctors would not touch her “with a 10-foot pole.”Medical experts recommend frequent and thorough hand washing as a major COVID-19 protocol. Yet as Andrew Pulrang, a freelance disabled writer wrote in Forbes Media LLC, “For many disabled people, even some of the simplest steps are harder to do, like washing hands. Some of us can’t move our hands as freely as others. Some of us can’t reach a sink reliably, or operate a soap dispenser by ourselves.” (March 19)Pulrang warns, “Many of us are terrified of being harmed by potential health care rationing. Now we hear that if ventilators run short, elderly and disabled people may be passed over in favor of people deemed more likely to survive and thrive. We understand what scarcity is, and we see the tough choices that emergencies impose. But we are not okay with being deemed less worthy of medical care, simply because we are disabled or chronically ill.”Protocols from the New York State Department of Health support medical rationing for people on ventilators during a pandemic. According to the guidelines, people who use ventilators and live on their own could have their ventilators taken away if they go to a hospital for treatment of the coronavirus.Even New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio have criticized Trump for refusing to order U.S. companies to produce more life-saving ventilators. He has legal authority to do so under the Defense Production Act.Pulrang adds: “Sacrificing disabled people in a crisis and in health care situations is very much on the table, and supported by a lot of conventional wisdom and ableist ideology. There is also the long history of eugenics to contend with … the idea that it’s actually better for society at large to have fewer chronically ill and disabled people, engineered by design and by policy. The Nazi T4 program involved doctors actively killing disabled people, but you don’t have to go even that far to the extreme to find popular ‘better off dead’ sentiments in America’s history, and even in the present.”Alison Barkoff, director of advocacy at the Center for Public Representation, says: “We are very concerned that people with disabilities are going to be forced to go without care and some may even be forced into nursing homes or other institutions — where they are at even higher risk of getting infected — due to these worker shortages” of home health aides and other caregivers of disabled people.Virus makes life even harderDuring a pandemic, stocking up on extra groceries and extra supplies of medications is harder for people with disabilities, who depend on accessible transportation to pharmacies and supermarkets. In the U.S. pandemic epicenter, New York City, disability rights activists are still fighting in the courts and in the streets to get elevators in the disgracefully inaccessible subway system.Developmentally disabled patients with the coronavirus are remaining in local hospitals past the point of medical necessity because residential programs that care for them are not equipped to bring them home safely. (News 4, March 20)The Social Security Act of 1935 was amended in 1956 to include benefits for disabled people under the age of 65. However, the Social Security Administration, citing COVID-19, closed all its field offices nationwide on March 17. This indefinitely banned in-person consultation visits and hearings and left current medical disability reviews incomplete.Schools and programs serving children and youth with disabilities are closing. Advocates for disabled children are sounding the alarm over the Senate Republicans’ proposed “Phase 3” coronavirus stimulus package, saying that it may eventually give the government power to absolve schools of at least some of their legal obligation to educate students with disabilities.Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the federal law that governs special education, schools are required to provide an equal education for students with disabilities. Under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, federally funded programs are prohibited from discriminating based on disability.However, the new Senate package, which still has to be passed by Congress, says Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos can soon tell Congress whether or not she thinks schools should be temporarily exempt from some of these requirements.Disability community left out of decisionsThe slogan “Nothing About Us Without Us!” communicates the idea that no policy should be decided by any representative without the full and direct participation of members of the affected groups. In the U.S., bigot-in-chief Donald Trump and other government officials have not included the disability community in the discussion of how to best respond to the pandemic.This is no surprise to the disability community, who remember how Trump and his extensive real estate holdings were sued a number of times for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, including by James Conlon, a person with paraplegia. In 2003, Conlon complained that the buses to Trump’s Atlantic City casino were virtually impossible to access in a wheelchair and was told no buses were available for wheelchair users.Conlon ultimately forced a settlement out of Trump. ( A U.S. Department of Justice investigation found that Trump’s Taj Mahal was nearly inaccessible for all people with disabilities.As recently as a March 22 press conference, Trump pursued his campaign promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, passed in 2010. Three years ago, massive resistance tantamount to a rebellion stopped Congress from taking up its repeal. The resistance included community and immigrant rights groups, workers in and outside of unions, students and people with disabilities who occupied government buildings in Washington, D.C. For many, the repeal of ACA would have been a death sentence.The ACA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in certain health programs, plans, activities and insurance marketplaces. Its protections against discrimination in health care — including race, color, national origin, sex and age — had not been adequately guaranteed by previous federal civil rights laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act.While racist Trump has called COVID-19 the “Chinese virus” many times, he has failed to properly give credit to the socialist People’s Republic of China for its successful response to the pandemic.That is no surprise to this reporter, who eight years ago proposed that the Workers World Party People with Disabilities Caucus adopt the slogan “From each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs” from Karl Marx’s 1875 “Critique of the Gotha Program.”  It is a communist slogan whose revolutionary optimism bears great hope for workers and all of the oppressed during this most difficult time of the horrific coronavirus pandemic.Yudelovich is a WWP People With Disabilities Caucus activist with emotional and hearing loss disabilities. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The proposal would be to promote affordable housing by financing mixed-use development that serves low-income families.A $2 million proposal was submitted to reduce local barriers to housing and community development by establishing a pre-development fund that would provide capital to organizations in housing reconstruction and rehabilitation. Puerto Rico was shaken by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake south of Indios on January 7. The island is still recovering from 2017’s Hurricane Maria when Puerto Rico felt economic losses exceeding $1 billion. Following the earthquake, CoreLogic expects the economic loss to be maintained within the $1 billion mark.“I am concerned because Puerto Rico hasn’t yet fully recovered from Hurricane Maria, and many of the homes on the island are designed for hurricanes and floods – they’re basically built on stilts, which makes them very vulnerable to earthquakes,” said Leisha Delgado, Founder & CEO, Hello Solutions. “Our experience from Maria tells us that there will be challenges coordinating assistance efforts, and communicating with people in parts of the island without power, so they may not know how to get aid, or know that help is on its way.”According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), this event has been identified as the main shock event (with 97% probability). A magnitude 5.8 event that struck on January 6 in a similar location is now identified as a foreshock.CoreLogic also notes that there is uncertainty from the effect of demand surge, where materials are in short supply from the repairs from Hurricane Maria.“As such, there could be an additional spike in the cost of building materials and reconstruction work,” CoreLogic notes. “Because the island has been struck by two events in close proximity, repair costs could easily increase by up to 33% without federal or local government intervention.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save About Author: Mike Albaneselast_img read more
