THE government was forced to step in yesterday to decide the level of funding for British horseracing after the deadline for the industry and bookmakers to come to an agreement passed without striking a deal.The annual scheme, known as the horseracing levy, sees bookmarkers give up 10 per cent of their profits from horseracing each year towards the maintenance of the sport. However, bookmakers and the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) have been at odds for several months following a campaign by the BHA to see the levy increased. The levy has declined from £115m three years ago to £75m this year, which the BHA says is the result of bookmakers using loopholes to avoid paying the levy including online betting exchanges to conduct their business. Bookmakers say reduced levy contributions are the result of people placing fewer bets on horse racing.Culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt will now decide the size of the annual levy but a final decision could take months.“It’s a big disappointment that the racing and gambling industries have failed to sort this out – but frankly the government should never be the last resort in an essentially commercial negotiation,” said Hunt. “We have therefore announced our intention to remove the role of the secretary of state from determining the levy scheme in future – and I hope this time will be the very last one that I have to be involved.”Patrick Nixon, chief executive of the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB), said the BHA’s call for a levy of £130m this year was unrealistic. He added the government should scrap the levy altogether.“Racing has to move from its dependency on income support to a proper free-market commercial relationship with the betting industry, as it has with those others to whom it supplies its product,” he said.

The ISO Draft International Standards for Drones will be open for public consultation, with drone operators, academics, businesses and the public invited to submit comments by 21 January.After that, final adoption of the standards is expected to be rolled out worldwide over the course of next year.Co-founder and chief executive of manufacturer Dronamics Svilen Rangelov told The Loadstar industry-wide standards was an important step, but pointed to potential difficulties.“Use cases for unmanned technologies can be vastly different – from crop monitoring in agriculture, to disaster relief, to inspection of wind farm blades,” he said.“Cargo, on the other hand, presents its own sets of specific challenges and opportunities for automation.“Aviation, one of the most scrutinised and regulated industries in the world, has already solved a lot of them, so this ISO draft should be standing on the shoulders of giants.”Mr Rangelov said he would be looking at the standards and submitting feedback in due course.In the UK, the government is reportedly working on a UK Drone Bill, expected early next year, that will create its own regulatory framework aided by the new IOS standards.The convenor of the IOS working group responsible for developing the standards, Robert Garbett, said he was “delighted” the work had reached a point where public consultation could begin.“My conversations with drone buyers, manufacturers, users and the wider public indicate that these standards are warmly and enthusiastically welcomed by all,” he said.“I’d encourage all those with an interest in drones to engage with the consultation process, so no stone is left unturned in our quest for the creation and adoption of best-practice drone standards.” Next year will see the adoption of the first worldwide standards for operating drones.The International Standards Organisation (IOS) unveiled the standards today, following a seven-year global collaboration with standards institutions across the world.“These are expected to trigger rapid acceleration of growth in drones, as organisations worldwide are galvanised to adopt drones against a new background of reassurance on safety and security,” it said.“The new standards will play an essential role in guiding how drones are used safely and effectively in a framework of regulatory compliance.” By Alexander Whiteman 21/11/2018 © George Tsartsianidis read more

However, that’s now 2 of our ACANZP Bishops – the other is the Pakeha Archbishop of New Zealand, who has been chosen to head the Anglican Ecumenical centre in Rome, Italy – who have been actively ‘poached’ by oversea interests in the Anglican Communion!Now, that’s either a great boost for our New Zealand Church or, alternatively, ACANZP could be seriously weakened by the loss of two very capable and well-loved Bishops, both of whom have contributed largely to what we have become in our multi-cultural society. However, at a time of stress within the Communion, we in Aotearoa/New Zealand can be proud that we have produced Bishops of the like of these two cleric by the patriarchal name of ‘David’, to help in the mission of the world-wide Anglican Communion at this time in our joint history.

He noted that Obama’s message during the election campaign demonstrated his profound understanding of these challenges as he shared his vision for a new world of peace and prosperity.“I am confident that as you set about actualising this vision, you will make this a better place for all of mankind”, Mr. Golding said in his message.The Prime Minister expressed the hope that developing countries like Jamaica, so often left on the periphery of the global agenda, will be part of the foreign policy framework, which recognises that shared, broad-based development is the surest way to secure and maintain global prosperity and stability.“I look forward to the strengthening under your administration of the warm relations that Jamaica has enjoyed with the US for many years and you are assured of Jamaica’s co-operation as we both strive to make improvements in the quality of life of our people”, Mr Golding concluded. read more
RelatedCorrectional Services to Review Electronic Monitoring Pilot Project RelatedCorrectional Services to Review Electronic Monitoring Pilot Project Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) is to undertake a review of the electronic monitoring pilot project, with a view to implementing the system as part of the correctional programme.Electronic monitoring is a surveillance system, used by correctional services globally, to monitor the activities of convicted offenders, who have been granted conditional release from incarceration. The process involves attaching an anklet to the offender, whose movements are then observed from a central site.Speaking at a demonstration of the system at the DCS’ head offices in Downtown Kingston on Thursday (Jan. 8), Acting Commissioner of Corrections, June Jarrett, informed that the two-year pilot project, which commenced in 2007, has ended, and the project will be evaluated with the aim of “perfecting it to move ahead.”Cabinet approved the pilot project, for which a US$150,000 contract was awarded to United States-based firm, Dilieu Technology, to be the sole provider and implementer of the system.“We have some policy decisions that must be taken before we start. We are awaiting our final report (on the project), after which we will go back to Cabinet,” the Acting Commissioner said during the demonstration, which was staged for a visiting government delegation from the Bahamas.Jamaica’s Ministry of National Security had extended an invitation to the Bahamians to view a demonstration of the electronic monitoring system, which the Bahamas is in the process of implementing as a pilot project.Mrs. Jarrett advised that six parishes were involved in the project, namely: Kingston, St. Andrew, Hanover, St. Elizabeth, Manchester, and Clarendon, with some 1,000 persons sensitised, and 40 additional persons trained as taggers, to monitor the activities of the volunteer offenders, who were fitted with the monitoring device.The Acting Commissioner described electronic monitoring as an ideal tool in the rehabilitation of inmates. “We see this as a very good option, especially in terms of population reduction in the institutions, and. we have overcrowding in our major institutions. So, we welcome it,” Mrs. Jarrett stated.Project Manager, Ira Porter, informed that under the project, a monitoring centre was established, equipped with computers and configured for monitoring the volunteers, and testing the tracking devices. She said that two rounds of training were conducted for probation aftercare officers, monitors, taggers, and trainers, while sensitisation sessions were held for some senior members of staff at the DCS’ head office.“The first round was conducted by Dilieu Technology personnel, and the second by the Department of Correctional Services’ personnel. The first sets of volunteers were tagged (in) November 2008. (Some) 48 persons were tagged, covering most parishes, with tracking covering all parishes,” the Project Manager said, adding that the project has had “favourable success” in the tracking and tagging of the volunteers.She said that surveys of the DCS’ staff, inmates, volunteers, and ex-offenders, to determine acceptance of electronic monitoring in the society, have been completed.Bahamian National Security Minister, Tommy Turnquest, who headed the visiting delegation, said he was impressed with the project. He informed that his country has already passed legislation to implement the project as a pilot.“We hope that by the first quarter of this year, we will be able to begin a pilot programme. Unlike what you do in Jamaica, our initial thinking, and that may change, is.that we are likely to have the police do the monitoring (as against the correctional services),” Mr. Turnquest informed.
