States that have legalised sports betting in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA have not included a fee as part of their regulations, despite calls from leagues to do so. Leagues have said this so-called ‘integrity fee’ would be used to combat issues related to cheating. However, Peter Moschetti, a gaming commissioner in New York, has said that lawmakers in the state are considering “all” components of a state senate bill introduced this year, according to the Reuters news agency. Moschetti made the comment while speaking at an event in New York alongside John Bonacic, chairman of the New York Senate gaming committee, who earlier this year tabled the state senate bill. The bill included plans for 0.25% of wagers to go directly to professional and college sports leagues, as well as an 8.5% state tax on gross revenue generated from sports wagering. Dan Spillane, senior vice-president of the NBA basketball league, urged the gambling industry to view the leagues “as partners, not adversaries”. Spillane added: “Without sports there is no sports betting.” Although the majority of sports leagues have retained their stance on integrity fees, recent activity suggests the leagues are looking at alternative ways to gain profit from betting. Last week, the NBA announced an official partnership with MGM in a deal worth a reported $25m (£19m/€22m).In addition, Gary Bettman, commissioner of the NHL, said the ice hockey league could seek partnerships with gambling companies in order to take advantage of the expanding regulated sport betting market in the US.

Do you want to get rich with cheap UK shares? I think that the 2020 stock market crash has significantly bolstered my own chances of making a million or more in my Stocks and Shares ISA.Hundreds of ISA investors like me made a fortune during the bull market of the 2010s. Is there any reason why I can’t follow their lead? I don’t think so. They bought cheap UK shares after the banking crisis prompted a share market crash that spanned late 2008 and early 2009. They then got rich as the FTSE 100 doubled in value and the FTSE 250 trebled during the ensuing decade.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…I’ve bought UK shares in 2020 in a bid to follow their successes. And I plan to keep buying in 2021 as well. There remain hundreds of stocks that I think are too cheap to miss following this year’s stock market crash. Weak investor confidence means that they’ve failed to bounce back from their recent lows. This plays into the hands of eagle-eyed UK share pickers like me.2 millionaire-making UK shares Of course investors need to be careful before splashing the cash in this climate. The double whammy of Covid-19 and Brexit has changed the long-term earnings outlook for a great many UK shares (such as FTSE 100 banking royalty Lloyds). A great many top companies might not even survive the carnage as their balance sheets come under colossal pressure.But as I say, there are still exceptional opportunities for UK share investors to get rich in the post-coronavirus landscape. Here are two quality stocks I think could treble my money during the 2020s. They might even help me become an ISA millionaire.#1: GraingerThere simply aren’t enough affordable homes in Britain to go round. And the problem is getting worse. Demand for new private rented homes will grow to 7.2m houses/flats by the middle of the decade, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. This compares with the 4.9m homes that were needed last year.London-quoted residential landlord Grainger is one UK share that can expect demand for its homes to rocket. And it could make its shareholders a fortune in the process. Net rental income here soared 16% in the last fiscal year (to September 2020) thanks to these favourable market conditions. With a build pipeline of 8,950 homes, it’s particularly-well placed to capitalise on this growing trend.#2: Wizz Air2020 has been a torrid time for UK airline shares. But the Covid-19 crisis presents opportunities for those able to survive. They stand to gain from reduced competition and will also enjoy myriad M&A opportunities to boost future profits growth.I myself would buy shares in Wizz Air to ride this opportunity. It has a rock-solid balance sheet. It’s one of Europe’s major operators in the fast-growing low-cost segment. And the Hungarian airline is in prime position to capitalise on surging traveller numbers in Central and Eastern Europe. Statista reckons that air passenger number growth in these territories largely ranged between 5% and 10% in the first half of 2019, according to its most recent study.

For instance, light and temperature are balanced by detectors that help ensure the property is constantly comfortable. Light levels, inside and outside the property, are controlled and all the window blinds are automatically corrected, to prevent sunlight damage to decoration and furniture.

Last year the charity worked with 259 people in Limerick through its Housing With Supports and Resettlement Projects.Pat Doyle, the charity’s CEO, said “Last year was an incredibly challenging one for everyone in society. As a result of Covid-19, Peter McVerry Trust faced numerous unforeseen challenges. Our experience of responding quickly and effectively to emergency situations ensured we mobilised rapidly to put in place measures to protect vulnerable people across our services and housing during the pandemic. We also adapted our service delivery to offer continued supports to people in need.”Housing SuccessMr Doyle said in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic the charity had a very successful year in terms of housing development and also in progressing people into housing. The charity said that almost half of its social housing tenancies at the end of 2020 were Housing First tenancies.“Last year was by far and away the best year we have experienced in terms of housing delivery and progressing people into housing. Overall, we helped 1,300 people secure a new home and directly delivered 150 social housing units in 2020. This included housing right across the country in key areas such as Limerick where we continue to grow our social housing stock and work towards increasing the number of Housing First tenancies.”Continuing, Mr Doyle said “In Limerick, we experienced another busy year working in partnership with Limerick City and County Council, supporting individuals, couples and families into social housing. We also continued to progress plans on new social housing schemes in Limerick such as our planned developments in Moyross and Southill and also places like Mallow Street in the city centre.” Twitter

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail IL for www.theindianalawyer.comA former state employee who claims she was fired for blowing the whistle on questionable payment practices in the Indiana Department of Environment Management will bring her case before the Indiana Supreme Court next week, when she will urge the justices to allow her complaint against the state agency to continue.Oral arguments in Suzanne E. Esserman v. Indiana Department of Environmental Management, 49S02-1704-PL-189, are set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday before the high court. Suzanne Esserman, who was fired from her position with IDEM in January 2014, has rejected the state’s claim she was let go due to poor work performance.Instead, Esserman said IDEM fired her after she began asking questions about submitted invoices and receipts in the agency’s Excess Liability Trust Fund program. The former state worker claims she refused to rubber stamp approvals for payment through the ELTF division, which led to her discharge.The Indiana Court of Appeals overturned the dismissal of Esserman’s whistleblower complaint in December, and on Thursday she will take her case to the Supreme Court in the hopes of receiving a ruling that will one day allow her to return to work for the state.The court will hear two additional oral arguments on Thursday. First, at 9 a.m., the justices will consider whether Pizza Hut can be held liable for the death of a man whose death was caused, in part, by a Pizza Hut delivery driver striking his scooter.The Indiana Court of Appeals ruled in September the negligent hiring claim against Pizza Hut in the case of Dale Sedam, Kim Sedam, and Bryan Norris, as co-personal representatives of the Estate of David C. Hamblin, deceased v. 2JR Pizza Enterprises, LLC doing business as Pizza Hut, 39S05-1703-CT-00171, can continue.Then at 9:45, the court will hear the case of Will Thomas v. State of Indiana, 27S02-1703-CR-000170. In that case, the Indiana Court of Appeals overturned Will Thomas’ conviction for Class A felony dealing in a narcotic drug after holding the drugs found in his mouth should be excluded under the “fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine.”Thursday’s oral arguments will be the first held without Justice Robert Rucker, who retires today after nearly 18 years on the Supreme Court bench. Gov. Eric Holcomb is in the process of selecting Rucker’s replacement from a trio of finalists – Clark Circuit Judge Vicki Carmichael, Wabash Superior Judge Christopher Goff and Boone Superior Judge Matthew Kincaid.Chief Justice Loretta Rush sent a letter to Holcomb detailing the finalists’ qualifications on April 26. Holcomb now has 60 days from that date to select Indiana’s next justice.
