CrownBet’s head of corporate affairs, Daniel Bevan, told iGamingBusiness.com that customers on its platform and players with William Hill Australia accounts will automatically switch over to BetEasy.Both CrownBet and William Hill have already started communicating with customers about the changes. The Stars Group increased its majority stake in CrownBet in March, shortly after CrownBet agreed a deal to buy William Hill’s Australian business. CrownBet finalised its acquisition of William Hill Australia in April. The aggregate price for both transactions was $315m (£240m/€269m).The BetEasy brand was previously active in Australia under the ownership of Matt Tripp, the current chief executive of CrownBet, who purchased Betezy in 2014 and relaunched the operation under the BetEasy name.BetEasy then rebranded as CrownBet after its purchase by Crown Resorts.CrownBet announced last month that it wanted to rebrand as Sportingbet, which was one of Australia’s leading brands before being bought out by CrownBet five years ago.However, Paddy Power Betfair-owned Sportsbet launched legal action in a bid to stop the move, saying in a Federal Court lawsuit that the name would infringe on its own trademark and confuse punters.Sportsbet secured a temporary court injunction earlier this month to block the rebrand.

Many in all three communities, located about 25 miles north of Boston, continue to be affected by the evacuations and ongoing power outages.As of Friday afternoon, diocesan personnel were in the process of reaching out to the Brooks School in North Andover and the Episcopal chaplain at Phillips Academy in Andover.The cause of the crisis is still under investigation by federal and state officials. News media report one Lawrence teenager killed and at least 20 injured in Thursday’s disaster, which caused at least 60 separate fires and the evacuation of thousands of people from their homes. Many schools and businesses remained closed and some 18,000 electric company customers were without power on Friday, according to news reports.“The prayers and concern of our entire diocesan family are with those in the Merrimack Valley communities affected by this disaster,” Bishop Alan M. Gates said Sept. 14. “Bishop Gayle Harris and I, together with regional canon Martha Hubbard, have been directly in contact with the clergy of our parishes in those communities and our colleagues at Esperanza Academy. A number of their families have been directly affected, together with countless others who will need our support in the weeks ahead. I invite from all corners of the diocese your continuing prayers and contributions toward relief efforts.”To that end, the bishops ask all congregations in the diocese to consider designating or collecting an offering in support of a diocesan relief response. Those offerings should be made payable to the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts and marked “Merrimack Valley Disaster Relief.” Contributions may be sent to the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, Attn: Lauren Zook, 138 Tremont Street, Boston MA 02111.As the situation unfolds, the bishops, together with local clergy and disaster response contacts, Deacon Jay Jordan, Episcopal Relief & Development disaster preparedness coordinator in the Diocese of Massachusetts, and Canon to the Ordinary Bill Parnell, Episcopal Relief & Development disaster response coordinator for the diocese, will continue to be in conversation to determine what longer-term response might be needed.In a conference call on Sept. 14, Episcopal clergy in the affected communities expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of prayers, concern and support they’ve already received. One of the ways people can be of help to them, they said, is to be patient as they prioritize the immediate care of their communities and families and take time to determine what will be needed in the days ahead.Prayer and liturgy resources for use in times of disaster are available from Episcopal Relief & Development here.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is not inviting same-sex spouses to the 2020 Lambeth Conference of bishops.Public word of Welby’s decision came in an Anglican Communion News Service blog post by Anglican Communion Secretary General Josiah Idowu-Fearon. He wrote that “invitations have been sent to every active bishop” because “that is how it should be – we are recognizing that all those consecrated into the office of bishop should be able to attend.” Those invitations traditionally come from the archbishop of Canterbury.“But the invitation process has also needed to take account of the Anglican Communion’s position on marriage which is that it is the lifelong union of a man and a woman,” Idowu-Fearon wrote. “That is the position as set out in Resolution I.10 of the 1998 Lambeth Conference. Given this, it would be inappropriate for same-sex spouses to be invited to the conference.”Idowu-Fearon said that the archbishop of Canterbury “has had a series of private conversations by phone or by exchanges of letter with the few individuals to whom this applies.”Resolution 1.10 was passed by the conference in 1998 after heated debate.The Episcopal Church currently has one actively serving bishop who has a same-sex spouse. The Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool was elected as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles in December 2009 and consecrated May 2010. She has been bishop assistant in the Diocese of New York since April 2016. She is married to Becki Sander, her partner of more than 30 years.Diocese of New York Bishop Assistant Mary GlasspoolGlasspool told Episcopal News Service Feb. 18 in a telephone interview that she received a letter from Welby on Dec. 4, 2018, in which he said that he was writing to her “directly as I feel I owe you an explanation of my decision not to invite your spouse to the Lambeth Conference, a decision that I am well aware will cause you pain, which I regret deeply.”Welby met with Glasspool and Sander in September when he visited Trinity Wall Street. She called it a get-acquainted session, which did not touch on the Lambeth Conference.Glasspool said she and Sander, New York Bishop Andy Dietsche and New York Bishop Suffragan Allen Shin “have been praying about this and talking about this” since receiving the letter. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry also met with Glasspool and Sander to discuss Welby’s letter. “One of my takeaways was how can we make a positive, creative, responsive witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord,” she said about how they and the church should respond to his decision.Curry was in South Africa Feb. 18 and issued a short statement saying, “I have not yet had an opportunity to consult with appropriate leadership in the church but will do so.”Both Glasspool and Sander replied to Welby in separate letters later in December. Glasspool said her two-page letter to Welby, parts of which she read to ENS, told him about her 30-year experience in The Episcopal Church “and where the church has come,” and evoked Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail, especially his emphasis on just and unjust laws.“When will the church accept to it the gift of the LGBTQ community?” she asked Welby. “Young people are watching us. If they haven’t written off all of Christianity for being homophobic, they do find The Episcopal Church inviting and inclusive.”She told the archbishop, “The important thing I want to say is it’s about love. I am talking about people who love one another and look to the church to support them in their life-long marriage where the values of faithfulness, respect, dignity, truth-telling, monogamy and the love that is our loving God’s gift to all of us are upheld.“After a lifetime of discussion, I am relatively confident that The Episcopal Church will never again turn its back on the LGBTQ community. Will the same be said of Lambeth 2020?”Spouses who attended the 2008 Lambeth Conference of bishops pose July 25 on the University of Kent campus in Canterbury. Photo: Anglican ArchivesGlasspool told ENS that Sander noted in their conversation about Welby’s decision that it seems to be based in part on an apparent assumption that “spouses are simply an extension of the bishop to whom they are married, and that somehow there is a view of marriage that doesn’t quite sit well with an egalitarian or reciprocal or a mutual partnership” model.The bishop said that she expects to attend Lambeth 2020, and she has asked Sander to come with her for support. “The issue is will she be included in the conversation,” Glasspool said.Glasspool said she plans to “consult, as much as people are willing” at the House of Bishops previously scheduled meeting March 12-15, 2019, at Kanuga outside Hendersonville, North Carolina. “Not with the expectation that we are all of one mind, but because I do not wish to respond only as an individual, but rather with a sensitivity to the body as a whole,” she said.Prior to the House of Bishops meeting in March, the church’s Executive Council, composed of bishops, clergy and laity, begins its winter meeting Feb. 21 in Midwest City, Oklahoma.Maine Bishop-Elect Thomas James BrownThe Rev. Thomas Brown is due to be ordained and consecrated on June 22 as the next bishop of the Diocese of Maine. He is married to the Rev. Thomas Mousin. The diocese elected Brown on Feb. 9. His election is about to enter the consent process canonically required in all bishop elections. A majority of diocesan standing committees and bishops with jurisdiction must sign off on each election.Brown told ENS that he would not comment about the Lambeth Conference decision because of his pending consent process.Diocese of Toronto Bishop Suffragan Kevin Robertson married Mohan Sharma on Dec. 28, 2018. The diocese congratulated him on his marriage, which was attended by Toronto Archbishop Colin Johnson and Toronto Bishop Diocesan Andrew Asbil.Robertson said in a telephone interview with ENS Feb. 18 that Welby told him in person that Sharma would not be invited. Robertson was at Lambeth Palace, Welby’s official London residence, on Feb. 7 as part of an annual 10-day new-bishop orientation run by Canterbury Cathedral when he was summoned to Welby’s office. The conversation occurred two days before Brown’s election in Maine.Diocese of Toronto Bishop Suffragan Kevin Robertson“He said to me there are only two of you in the communion in this situation, you and Mary, and he said if I invite your spouses to the Lambeth Conference, there won’t be a Lambeth Conference,” Robertson said.Welby, Robertson said, seemed to be “willing to move beyond what happened in 2008 when Gene Robinson was not invited. He was willing to invite me and Mary, but that it was too much of a step to invite our spouses as well.”Their conversation came on the same day that Nigerian Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, the primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria and the chairman of the Global Anglican Future Conference, or GAFCON, issued a “warning” saying that he expected that Robertson “and his partner will be attending [Lambeth] and received in good standing.”Okoh said, “With great sadness we therefore have to conclude that the Lambeth Conference of 2020 will itself be an obstacle to the gospel by embracing teaching and a pattern of life which are profoundly at odds with the biblical witness and the apostolic Christianity through the ages.”Robertson said the refusal to invite his and Glasspool’s spouses is “hurtful.” He said he and Sharma, who have two children, have been together for 10 years.“I actually find it quite offensive. I know that’s a strong word, but I’m aware the Anglican Communion is not of one mind around marriage,” he said. “However, the decision to invite all the other spouses without inviting ours, I think, sends a very clear message about the way that same-sex relationships are regarded in the communion. I think that’s a troubling sign.”Robertson said his first instinct was not to go with Lambeth without his spouse. While he has not made a final decision, he said that, at the moment, he thinks it’s important for all of the bishops who will find themselves in this position to go so that their voices are at the table.During his time with the 29 bishops who were part the orientation in Canterbury, Robertson said some of them discussed Okoh’s letter. While they all did not agree, those conversations “reminded me that it’s so important to be in conversation; it’s so important to being in the process of building relationships, that that is only way we are going to get through this,” Robertson said.“Frankly, it’s why I am so disappointed about the spouses not being invited. If we’re going to get through this, it will be because people come to know bishops in same-sex relationships and realize that we’re people too. It’s not by keeping people away. I think that’s the worst thing to do.”The General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada is scheduled to vote in July 2019 on changing its marriage canon to allow same-sex marriage.The bishops at the 2008 Lambeth Conference of bishops pose July 25 for the traditional group photo. Photo: Anglican ArchivesThe Lambeth Conference is a periodic gathering of bishops from across the Anglican Communion, which the archbishop of Canterbury calls and issues invitations for. The last gathering was in 2008. The July 23-Aug 2, 2020, gathering will be held, as is tradition, in Canterbury, England, with most of the sessions at the University of Kent.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and his wife, Caroline, are featured on the home page of the 2020 Lambeth Conference. Photo: 2020 Lambeth ConferenceSpouses have typically participated in a parallel program. However, in 2020, there will be a joint program for the first time. Spouses of bishops will attend combined sessions “at key points in the overall program,” according to information here. There will also be separate sessions on the specific responsibilities of the ministry for bishops and spouses, according to the Lambeth website. The conference’s website features a photo of Welby and his wife, Caroline. The page was recently changed to add a link to Idowu-Fearon’s blog. It now reads, “The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is sending personal invitations to every eligible bishop and spouse (excluding same-sex spouses) and is looking forward immensely to hosting them.”Idowu-Fearon’s statement that “all those consecrated into the office of bishop should be able to attend” the Lambeth gathering might be seen as a certain amount of movement beyond the most-recent previous Lambeth Conference. In 2008 then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams refused to invite Bishop Gene Robinson, who had become the first openly gay and partnered bishop in the Anglican Communion in 2003. He served as bishop of New Hampshire until his retirement in January 2013. He and his then-partner of 25 years, Mark Andrew, were joined in a civil union in 2008 and married in 2010. They divorced in 2014.At the House of Bishops meeting in March 2008, three bishops whom then-Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori asked to discuss Robinson’s then-still-pending invitation reported that “a full invitation is not possible.”Robinson urged his colleagues not to boycott the conference because of his exclusion. Instead, addressing the House of Bishops, he urged them to participate fully in it, and thanked all who were willing to “stay at the table.”At the end of that meeting, the bishops said in part, “Even though we did not all support the consecration of the Bishop of New Hampshire, we acknowledge that he is a canonically elected and consecrated bishop in this church. We regret that he alone among bishops ministering within the territorial boundaries of their dioceses and provinces, did not receive an invitation to attend the Lambeth Conference.”Then-Diocese of New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson signs copies of his book “In the Eye of the Storm” July 31, 2008, in the Lambeth Conference Marketplace on the University of Kent campus in Canterbury. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceSome other bishops from across the more than 165 countries in which the Anglican Communion is present refused to attend the 2008 Lambeth Conference due to theological disagreements with the main body of the church about the full inclusion of LGBTQ people and women in the life of the church.Robinson went to the gathering in what he called an act of witness. Organizers permitted him to be in the Lambeth Marketplace, the conference’s display and sales area, an invitation he initially refused. He was also allowed to attend two receptions hosted by Episcopal Church bishops that were specifically intended to allow him to meet colleagues from around the world. He was invited to worship and speak at several other venues in the Canterbury area, including the University of Kent’s law school.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter.Editor’s note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that then-Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold asked a small group of bishops to speak to the archbishop of Canterbury about Bishop Gene Robinson’s invitation. It was then-Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori.

The scheme is an expression of our desire to organise complex elements in a way that appears to be harmonious and balanced. The underlying idea was to develop an arrangement of many competing components and create something that gives the impression of being simple and ordered. This philosophy was perused to create a feeling of calm in the building, heightening the resident’s experience of the surrounding environment and to enable the contemplation of nature. Save this picture!© Jon LinkinsThe house amenity was devised to contribute to the street by allowing passes by to look into the building without the residents losing their privacy. Large concrete portals were used to encase glass walls that framed views back into the upper levels of the building and beyond into the garden courtyards and National Park. This allows pedestrians to observe the more public spaces of the house like, the movement on the entry stair, but it also enables the owners to occupy the building edge to observe the theater of the surfers on the street. Save this picture!© Jon LinkinsThe program concept was to open up the house to the surrounding terrain without compromising the privacy of the house or the neighboring buildings. The plan configuration was also carefully considered so that there was a positive relationship between the public and private areas of the residence. The dwelling has been crafted to maximize the winter sun entering the building while excluding the summer sun. This combined with tactics to encourage natural cross ventilation allows the house to be cool in summer and warm in winter without the need for mechanical ventilation. Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe house is progressive in its environmental design. It has grid connected solar power, generating more electricity than the residents use. Underground rain water tanks for reuse in the house. Passive solar design, to reduce the demand on mechanical cooling and heating. LED lighting. New subtropical landscape with edible species to 60 percent of the property increasing biodiversity and wildlife habitat. The heavy weight construction provides thermal mass for exclusion of heat gain in summer and retention of warmth in winter. The permanent nature of construction will require very little on-going energy consumption over the life cycle of the building.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessHomeless World Cup Legacy Center / Architecture For HumanitySelected ProjectsAIV-Schinkel-Wettbewerb Competition Winning Proposal / David WeclawowiczUnbuilt Project Share Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/347707/beach-house-teeland Clipboard Architects: Teeland Concrete Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© Nic Granleese+ 13 Share “COPY” Beach House / TeelandSave this projectSaveBeach House / Teeland ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeTeeland ConcreteOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNoosaHousesAustraliaPublished on March 21, 2013Cite: “Beach House / Teeland” 21 Mar 2013.

An 11-person delegation representing FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) visited the South Texas Human Rights Center in Falfurrias, Texas, on June 30.In a decision issued Oct. 3 in California, Judge Edward Chen called the Department of Homeland Security’s “actions … based on animus against nonwhite, non-European immigrants in violation of Equal Protection guaranteed by the Constitution.” He said politely, with a lot of wiggle room, what most people would simply call “racist” and protected the immigrants from expulsion.The DHS had decided that nearly 300,000 people who had temporary protected status (TPS), which allows them to live and work in the United States, would have to wrap up their lives and leave the U.S. Following Judge Chen’s decision, citizens of Sudan, El Salvador, Haiti and Nicaragua who legally live and work in the U.S. will now have their status continued. Meanwhile, a lawsuit challenging the DHS attempt to eliminate their protections continues.TPS protects migrants in the U.S. who come from countries that have been hit by dire conditions, such as epidemics, war or natural disaster.Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), whose Miami district includes a large community of Haitian-Americans, told the Miami Herald on Oct. 4 that she wasn’t surprised that the judge found “direct evidence of animus.” From the beginning of Trump’s administration, and especially “more recently with the inhumane treatment of migrant children,” President Donald Trump has made it abundantly clear “that people with brown skin are unwelcome.”Wilson has visited Haiti and seen the extreme devastation, including damage from hurricanes, a 2010 earthquake and two outbreaks of cholera introduced by United Nations “peacekeepers.” According to Wilson, “There is a definite need to continue TPS for Haitian nationals.”According to the Center for Migration Studies, 51,700 TPS holders work in construction. Other industries also have thousands of TPS workers: 32,400 in restaurants and food services, 15,800 in landscaping services, 10,000 in child care and 9,200 in grocery stores.On the same day that Chen made his ruling, six tractor-trailers driven by immigrants with TPS surrounded the Los Angeles Detention Center. This action was part of three days of protests at the port by the Teamsters, demanding that drivers be given the status of workers, with benefits, not treated as independent contractors.Ron Herrera, vice president of the Western Region of the Teamsters, said that the action is part of a new era in the Teamsters union, where they intend to advocate on behalf of their immigrant members.“We’re a little late and we were never at the front, but when the dynamics of our people changed, we had to change with it,” Herrera told BuzzFeed News on Oct. 3. “We realized a majority of workers we’re trying to organize are TPS holders and immigrants. A lot of them were predominantly immigrant Hispanics.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
January 1 marked the 217th year of independence for the Republic of Haiti. The Haitian Revolution was led by formerly enslaved Black revolutionary François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture and later by Jean-Jacques Dessalines. A majority of Louverture’s army had been born in Africa.The Haitian Revolution began in 1791 after a Vodou ceremony at Bois Caïman, where a Vodou mambo and a Vodou priest, Cécile Fatiman and Dutty Boukman respectively, spoke of an uprising by those enslaved, who were encouraged to take revenge against their French oppressors. One week later, the revolution broke out; 1,000 enslavers were killed and 1,800 plantations destroyed.Over the next 13 years, the Haitian army, created from enslaved Africans who had liberated themselves, fought vigorously with the French colonizers in Haiti. Besides Toussaint Louverture, there were other prominent leaders: Jean-Jacques Dessalines and Sanité Bélair, a Haitian woman and Black revolutionary leader who was captured and executed in 1802.After Louverture was captured by French trickery in 1803, Dessalines continued to lead the revolution — destroying Napoleon’s army and declaring Hayti (later Haiti) free and independent on January 1, 1804. Haiti was the first Black independent republic and the first nation in the Western Hemisphere to abolish slavery.Haitians rally against police brutality, June 7, 2020.Kim Ives/Haïti LibertéToday, Haiti is still weighed down by burdens imposed by French and U.S. colonialism and imperialism. It is kept subjected through embargoes and sanctions, demands for debt repayment and a U.S. occupation behind the veil of U.N. peacekeepers.Workers World Party honors the freedom fighters of the Haitian Revolution, whose struggle had worldwide resonance. We congratulate the Haitian people on another year of revolutionary struggle against colonialism and imperialism!

Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison Organisation Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff March 14, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TV host accused of “promoting terrorism” News Read in Arabic (بالعربية)Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about a judicial investigation into TV journalist Dina Abdel Fattah that is indicative of the decline in freedom of information in Egypt.Fattah is being investigated on suspicion of “promoting terrorism” because she invited members of “Black Bloc,” a new protest movement that has become the government’s bugbear, to participate in “Al-Shaab Yourid” (The People Want), the political programme she used to host on Al-Tahrir TV.She and Khairi Hassan, one of the programme’s producers, were summoned to the public prosecutor’s office for questioning on 10 February. Both were then released later the same day on bail of 5,000 Egyptian pounds (570 euros), which was paid by the journalists’ union.The prosecutor’s office said it opened the investigation after receiving 238 complaints about her. Members of the Shura Council (the upper house of Egypt’s parliament) also filed a complaint, accusing the programme of being a “threat to public order” and an “incitement to vandalism.”Many journalists, NGOs and lawyers reacted by rallying to Fattah’s defence.“We condemn the repressive measures that the Egyptian government has been taking against journalists and we call for the withdrawal of this investigation into Fattah,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalists must be able to cover the new protest movements rocking Egypt, whether the government likes it or not. Gagging the media just fuels instability.”“The number of complaints against journalists has soared since Mohamed Morsi’s election as president. The judicial investigations and proceedings are clearly designed to restrict freedom of information. We urge the authorities to end their policy of harassing journalists and news providers.”After Al-Tahrir TV cancelled her programme on 24 February, Fattah announced that she was resigning in protest against a violation of freedom of information. Al-Sayed El-Shazli, the president of the Egyptian Media Syndicate, said the authorities probably told the TV station not to broadcast it.Launched shortly after the Mubarak regime’s overthrow in 2011, Al-Tahrir initially aspired to embody the aspirations of the Arab revolutions but its editorial policies later changed and many of its leading figures – including Mahmoud Saad, Belal Fadl, Amr El-Leithy, Hamdy Kandeel, Doaa Sultan, Ibrahim Eissa, Dina Abdel Rahman and now Dina Abdel Fattah – have gradually resigned.Egypt is ranked 158th out of 179 countries in this year’s Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
