German states discuss possible transition period for igaming

first_img Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance A number of German states are in discussions over a potential transition period that could allow operators to continue offering online casino products until the vertical is legalised from July 2021.The exact nature of the discussions, and whether this would allow operators to provide online casino without any sort of restriction, is as yet unclear, with sources telling iGB that they don’t want to “pre-empt” the talks.However, a spokesperson for the state government of Nordrhein-Westfalen told iGB: “The federal states are currently coordinating the extent to which enforcement measures against illegal gambling can be effectively implemented in the transition phase.”While other states are yet to respond to requests for comment, local media reports that the chancelleries in Bavaria, Hamburg and Berlin are also involved in the discussions.The discussions are playing out ahead of the implementation of the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV) from 1 July 2021. This revised regulatory model, which is currently subject to a standstill period as it is considered by the European Commission, expands the online market beyond sports betting for the first time.From July next year, online casino and poker will be regulated, albeit under strict conditions, such as a €1 per spin cap on slot stakes, and table games licences restricted to the number of land-based casinos in each state.Meanwhile, the €1,000 spending cap set out by the third amended State Treaty on Gambling will be extended across all verticals. That treaty in theory came into force from 2 January this year, as a temporary measure before the expanded regulatory framework was introduced.However, operators have been left in limbo after a court challenge derailed the sports betting licensing process under the third State Treaty. A case brought by Austrian bookmaker Vierklee saw the Administrative Court of Darmstadt rule the process was being conducted without due transparency by the Regional Council of Darmstadt, the Hessian body responsible for issuing licences. The Regional Council is appealing the court ruling.Potential for a transition period, which operator body the Deutscher Sportwettenverband has previously called for, first emerged through a separate legal challenge in the state of Hessen. This saw proceedings suspended in an unnamed operator’s appeal against a prohibition order issued by the Regional Council, to allow the two parties to negotiate a compromise agreement.When the third State Treaty was first implemented, a similar situation arose after legal challenges brought the licensing process to a halt. This ultimately saw Hessen, as the state responsible for licensing, implement a toleration policy or Duldung, in which operators that paid tax on German revenue and integrated with the national self-exclusion system would be permitted to conduct business without a licence.In the current limbo, states have taken contrasting approaches to online gaming operators. While some have looked to allow online casino, since it will be legal in less than a year, others have pursued action against the companies offering the vertical.In June the Hamburg Ministry of the Interior and Sport filed complaints against a trio of operators for violating the prohibition on igaming, with one of those targeted, GVC Holdings, dismissing the move as having “no merit or legal standing”.In Niedersachsen, the state responsible for issuing payment blocking orders against unlicensed operators, Freie Demokratische Partei (FDP) MPs have questioned the state’s hardline stance against the industry.Under the GlüNeuRStV, the state of Sachsen-Anhalt will host a new federal regulatory authority, while should it be approved by the EC and implemented, states will be bound by its terms until 31 December 2028 at the earliest. It must still be ratified by 13 of the country’s 16 states before it can come into force. 29th July 2020 | By contenteditor German states discuss possible transition period for igaming Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Casino & games Email Address A number of German states are in discussions over a potential transition period that could allow operators to continue offering online casino products until the vertical is legalised from July 2021.last_img read more

Summer Tours – Five Things We Learnt

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Pre-match, the attention focused on Jonathan Sexton and Tadgh Furlong starting on the bench, but it was the absence of Garry Ringrose that was most evident. Without a genuine 13, Ireland’s back-line wit was reduced to that of a Mrs Browns’ Boys script. With Bundee Aki and Rob Henshaw in midfield, Ireland struggled to get outside the Wallabies’ blitz defence.Relate – Meet Bundee AkiNeither would list passing as their primary skill, especially the ability to flick passes from the 13 channel out to the wing or full-back – a skill that separates proper outside-centres from the rest. With the Wallabies certain that Ireland couldn’t pass over the blitz, or step around it, they flooded the midfield and reduced Ireland’s ability to use either wings – despite this, Jacob Stockdale still had a fine game. Ringrose would solve all the problems above, hopefully he will start next week.Tricky customer: Kurtley Beale had a field day against IrelandKurtley Beale – the shapeshifterEven amongst ‘ultra-utility’ players, such as Isa Nacewa, Matt Giteau, James Hook etc, Kurtley Beale is the pinnacle. He has long been test-level at 10, 12, 13 and 15, but against Ireland he played all four at the same time. It was a remarkable performance.It was quantum rugby, where he was seemingly everywhere at once. On occasions he seemed to be the first, second and third receiver in the same phase. Whilst Ireland struggled to get outside the Wallaby blitz, Beale unlocked Ireland with ease. He didn’t merely accomplish this with passing or kick-passes either, on occasions he ran around the blitz.Being arguably the fastest 12 in Test rugby, Beale is comfortable going sideways, even backwards, before going forwards. During the second half he essentially ran a one-man ‘Leinster loop’, without the pass – he turned a two-man ‘underlap’ into a one man overlap on his own. Ireland need a plan for Beale next time out.No matter the line-up: New-look Wales have started stronglyWales have genuine depthWales have always struggled with squad depth. As a small nation and with only four professional teams, the nation’s player pool has been more hot-tub, than Olympic. But the result against Argentina suggests that this is changing.Whilst England and Ireland have taken very strong squads on tour, barring some senior players in key positions, Wales have taken what must be considered a development squad. And develop they have. Faf de Klerk is Springboks danger manIn the ‘PowerPoint’ age of rugby, where systems and charts take precedence over individual ability, it is wonderful to watch a player like Faf de Klerk. Once deemed perhaps too unorthodox for the Boks, his performance against England proved that box-kicking isn’t all that modern scrum-halves do.The ability to cause chaos at the base of a ruck is still vital. His approach is unique in Test rugby. Whereas most modern nines have an almost military approach at the base of scrums and rucks, de Klerk looks like he’s casually walking his dogs in the park – occasionally delivering a command to his hounds when required. There’s no arm-waving, no pointing, and with that comes less structure – which is hard to defend.Whilst most test scrumhalf’s approach the ruck early, set their feet and direct the pods, de Klerk arrives later and passes immediately. He rarely passes from a standing start, and the forward momentum means that his narrow channel snipes are harder to predict and therefore defend. Critics may argue that de Klerk’s approach leads to the odd messy pass and inaccurate clearance, but he keeps back-row forwards guessing like few others. Well played Faf.Carded: England also struggled with their disciplineEngland concede a 21-point leadMany of the issues keeping Eddie Jones awake at night are largely cosmetic. The selection of a genuine openside, and the inclusion of Brad Shields are easily rectified/ absorbed over the next 12 months. However, one aspect of England’s play isn’t so easy to ignore.England’s 67% tackle completion against the Barbarians has now been followed by the concession of a 24-3 lead against South Africa. That mant points in Test rugby is massive. With the majority of Tier One Test matches decided by 7-10 points, to lose a 21-point advantage is a major problem and points to a system failure, not merely individual tackle counts.Related – Six players who can ignite EnglandEngland have allowed in 14 tries in two games of Test standard rugby, with six of those tries being scored by the opposition’s wings. At first glance one would assume that Jonny May would be responsible for the defensive lapse on the wing, but that was not the case. May was fantastic with and without the ball against the Boks. He completed all seven of his tackles, scored an immaculate individual try and threw some wonderful inside passes.Mike Brown missed three from nine, the most missed tackles in the back-line. Much was made pre-game about Brown’s move to the wing. Many were concerned about his pace and ability to finish. But pace isn’t just required for wings to finish tries, it’s also vital in stopping them.Missing link: Garry Ringrose has had an incredible seasonIreland missed RingroseIt has been a long time since Ireland attracted criticism of any note. With the perfect blend of heavy, direct carries in the forwards, the best kicking game in world rugby and creativity in the midfield, their performances over the past 18 months have only been bested by the All Blacks. But that was not the case against the Wallabies. Blond ambition: Faf de Klerk makes another seering break Against a strong Puma’s pack, Dillon Lewis looked every inch a modern tighthead in the making – where his carrying was the equal of his scrummaging. Hallam Amos played like a first choice 15, regularly cutting into the 13 channel and offering Wales an attacking option at full-back, not merely a defensive safety net. Adam Beard impressed at lock and Cory Hill continued his rags to Euro Millions progress with yet another exemplary performance.Whilst the focus obviously remains on the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Wales now have a squad profile that looks primed for 2023 – a luxury of forward planning and player development that Wales has never had in the professional era.last_img read more

Gay Clark Jennings, lo escucha. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La Convención General fijó el verano pasado una agenda audaz para que los episcopales laboren en pro de la reconciliación racial y la evangelización; quehacer que ahora ha comenzado de manera algo inesperada.Por ejemplo, los líderes de la Iglesia han iniciado la obra de la reconciliación racial escuchándose atentamente unos a otros, en lugar de pedirles de inmediato a los miembros del personal que crearan nuevos programas. Y la nueva y continua labor de evangelización de la Iglesia incluye planes, por ejemplo, para reunir y apoyar a los evangelistas ocultos de la Iglesia y revivir los avivamientos.El presupuesto trienal 2016-2018 de la Convención incluye $3 millones para iniciar nuevas congregaciones con un énfasis en las comunidades hispanas, $2,8 millones para la obra de evangelización y también financia una nueva e importante iniciativa de $2 millones sobre justicia y reconciliación raciales.Laborar en pro de la justicia y reconciliación racialesEl verano pasado, la Convención intentó mover el foco de la Iglesia hacia los problemas raciales mediante la Resolución C019, que le dio al Obispo Primado y a la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados un extraordinario mandato a “conducir, dirigir y estar presente para garantizar y dar cuenta de la labor de justicia y reconciliación raciales de la Iglesia”, teniendo como objetivo especial la injusticia racial sistémica.La Resolución C019 reconoce que el racismo continúa plagando la sociedad y la Iglesia a pesar de los reiterados empeños de capacitación antirracista y otras iniciativas de justicia y reconciliación raciales, entre ellas más de 30 resoluciones de la Convención General que se remontan a 1952, y llama a la Iglesia a comenzar de nuevo.La decisión de encomendarles la tarea de supervisar la puesta en vigor de la resolución a los funcionarios ejecutivos, en lugar de a un comité o a un equipo de trabajo es inusual, pero “impactante” en palabras de Anita George, presidente del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Promoción Social e Interconexiones del Consejo Ejecutivo.George, haciendo un comentario, el 27 de noviembre, durante una reunión conjunta de su comité y el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Finanzas para la Misión, dijo que el hecho de que la Iglesia decidiera abordar este asunto y abordarlo a partir de su liderazgo “es lo que algunos de nosotros hemos estado pidiendo durante mucho tiempo: que cuando los líderes hablan la Iglesia escucha”.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, habla sobre una reunión que ella y el obispo primado Michael Curry, a la izquierda de la foto, sostuvieron en febrero sobre el tema de la reconciliación racial. Los dos intervinieron en una reunión conjunta de los comités de Finanzas y Promoción Social del Consejo Ejecutivo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Primero, los líderes tuvieron que discernir por dónde empezar. A Curry y la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, se sumaron los vicepresidentes de la Cámara de Obispos Mary Gray Reeves y Dean Wolfe, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados Byron Rushing y el director ejecutivo de la Convención General Michael Barlowe, in Austin, Texas, los días 3 y 4 de febrero, para discutir los rumbos del trabajo que pedía la Resolución C019.Durante esa reunión, escucharon a Dianne Pollard, diputada por Nueva York, que presidió el Comité de Justicia Social y Política de Estados Unidos de la Convención General, el cual auspició la resolución. Representantes de las diócesis de Atlanta y Nueva York describieron la labor de antirracismo en sus comunidades. La Rda. Stephanie Spellers. Canóniga del Obispo Primado para la Evangelización y la Reconciliación que se incorporó al personal del Obispo Primado en diciembre; Charles A. Wynder Jr., misionero para la Justicia Social y el Compromiso con la Promoción Social; Heidi J. Kim, misionera para la Reconciliación Racial y el Rdo. E. Mark Stevenson, misionero de la Pobreza Nacional, apoyaron la labor de la reunión.Y lo más importante, Curry dijo que el Consejo Ejecutivo, en lugar de trazar un plan de acción sobre el supuesto de que el grupo sabía adonde ir, los participantes se escucharon los unos a los otros. “Contamos las dimensiones de nuestras propias historias raciales”, remontándonos a la niñez en algunos casos, apuntó.“Hubo un período de intercambio muy eficaz”, añadió, “y fue a partir de ahí que empezamos a pensar: ¿cómo podemos ayudar a que la Iglesia participe en un nivel más profundo?”Es en ese nivel profundo que ocurrirán los cambios, sugirió Curry. Tomándose el tiempo de escucharse unos a otros los relatos de sus experiencias tanto dentro de la Iglesia como en el mundo, les dijo él a los dos comités del Consejo, “a largo plazo puede fructificar tanto para nuestra Iglesia y nuestro país como para los varios países en que la Iglesia Episcopal está representada”.El bosquejo de un plan para implementar la C019 “surgió de escucharnos mutuamente las historias y de oír el dolor y la esperanza de nuestra cultura a través de nuestras propias historias”, afirmó.Entre esos bosquejos se encuentran las siguientes posibilidades:* Convocar una reunión denominacional para discutir la justicia y la reconciliación raciales, semejante a la reunión de 2011 para debatir las bendiciones a parejas del mismo sexo, o tal vez una serie de reuniones más pequeñas en toda la Iglesia. Spellers dijo durante la reciente reunión del Consejo que estas reuniones no serían para que la gente presentara maneras de gastar los $2 millones. Se centrarían, por el contrario, en “escuchar por dónde Dios se mueve, dónde está la sabiduría, cuáles son las mejores medidas a tomar y, francamente, cómo tiene lugar esta transformación, según prestamos atención atentamente a la manera en que llegamos a reconciliarnos”.* Identificar otras vías de compartir nuestras historias, fomentar “relaciones de reconciliación”, escuchar a los vecinos de la Iglesia (tanto en el ámbito de la Comunión Anglicana como de otras denominaciones) y aumentar las oportunidades de formación para todas las edades.* Contemplar el llevar a cabo un censo para tener una comprensión más clara de la composición demográfica de la Iglesia y de su participación tradicional y actual en los sistemas de injusticia racial. “El hecho simple es que no conocemos la composición racial —y por ende, la composición de géneros o edades— de la Iglesia Episcopal, y hablar de reconciliación, hablar de transformación, hablar de corregir errores históricos resulta difícil cuando uno no sabe quién está aquí”, dijo Spellers a los comités.* Identificar los actuales recursos y ministerios de justicia y reconciliación raciales de la Iglesia, acaso por medio de una auditoría. La Iglesia Episcopal ha pedido disculpas por varios aspectos de su conducta a lo largo de los años, pero, dijo Spellers, tan importante como eso es que la gente oiga, “lo que necesariamente no hemos hecho es escuchar a toda la Iglesia respecto a lo que hiere, a lo que ha estado mal, históricamente y en la actualidad, cómo seguimos participando en sistemas de injusticia y disparidad racial como Iglesia… cómo nos hemos dedicado a la labor de hacer las cosas bien”.George, miembro del Consejo, dijo que el plan de que “toda la Iglesia escuche y luego hable” es importante debido a las historias que surgen. “Todas esas historias son esenciales, todas esas historias deben oírse”, afirmó.Y eso llevará tiempo“Esto en verdad no es un programa trienal; esto es a largo plazo”, dijo Jennings en la reunión de los comités de finanzas para la misión y promoción social e interconexión durante la reunión del Consejo del 26 al 28 de febrero. “Resulta claro que no se trata de [un asunto] predominante o exclusivamente blanco-negro; [resulta claro] que tenemos una Iglesia multicultural, multiétnica, multinacional y en consecuencia que los problemas en torno a la justicia y reconciliación raciales con extremadamente complejos”.Durante esa misma reunión de comités, David Bailey, obispo de Navajolandia, advirtió que llevar a cabo esa labor exigiría un enérgico liderazgo a través de la Iglesia. “Gústenos o no”, una gran parte del liderazgo en una iglesia que se llama “episcopal” (lo cual significa que tiene obispos) descansa en la Cámara de Obispos y el éxito depende de si sus miembros “deciden que las cosas avancen”.Curry y Jennings dijeron que se proponen enviar pronto una carta a los obispos y diputados invitándoles, y por extensión a toda la Iglesia, a incorporarse a la labor.Tess Judge, la miembro del Consejo que preside el Comité de Finanzas para la Misión, instó a Curry y a Jennings a encontrar medios de obtener información sobre los planes de cada convención diocesana y a instar a esos participantes a hablar al respecto en los lugares de donde provengan. “Necesitamos que esto llegue a los bancos de las iglesias” dijo ella.Tal como los líderes de la Iglesia dejaron aclarado en el Consejo Ejecutivo, la obra de la justicia y la reconciliación raciales y la evangelización a la cual la Convención también llamó a la Iglesia están entrelazadas”.‘¿Qué les parece hacer de la evangelización la nueva normalidad?’Al Obispo Primado y a otras personas de la Iglesia les gustaría desterrar a los libros de historia la época en que la evangelización en la Iglesia Episcopal era un oxímoron.Curry dijo que él podía “recordar con mucha claridad los tiempos en que la evangelización estaba en un segundo plano y no se tomaba en serio”, Ahora la Iglesia Episcopal está lista “a dar un paso para reclamar nuestra herencia como cristianos y seguidores de Jesús en la tradición anglicana y episcopal” para encontrar y formar nuevos discípulos, le dijo a otro grupo de miembros de comités del Consejo Ejecutivo.Anita George, presidente del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Promoción Racial e Interconexiones , mientras escuchaba hablar a la Rda. Stephanie Spellers, canóniga del Obispo Primado para la Evangelización y Reconciliación, en una reunión reciente de comités del Consejo Ejecutivo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Hubo un tiempo, dijo Spellers durante su sermón en el Consejo Ejecutivo, cuando un comité de compromiso comunitario o de misión era una rareza; ahora es inusual que una parroquia no tenga un grupo así.“¿Qué les parece que hagamos de la evangelización la nueva normalidad?”, sugirió ella.Así como siempre hubo episcopales haciendo labor de compromiso comunitario y de misión con o sin comités que los respaldaran, hay evangelistas que ya trabajan en la Iglesia. “Están allí, están ocultos; podemos acogerlos”, dijo Spellers.Uno de los primeros pasos para hacer eso, oyó el Consejo, será una cumbre sobre evangelización, planeada tentativamente para los días 18 y 19 de noviembre en Dallas y coauspiciada por el Movimiento Adelante [Forward Movement] y a la que seguiría una conferencia denominacional.“La idea es crear una red de profesionales de la evangelización y otras personas a través de nuestra Iglesia que serían capaces de llevar el Movimiento de Jesús a sus comunidades locales”, explicó la Rda. Susan Snook, presidente del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Ministerio y Misión Locales, durante la reunión del Consejo.Hay planes también de adaptar y compartir materiales formativos de evangelización a través de la Iglesia y crear nuevos materiales donde se necesiten.Y existen los avivamientos. “Los avivamientos son parte de nuestra historia”, dijo Spellers de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Vamos a reclamar esa parte de nuestra historia”.Si bien esas reuniones tendrán un predicador dinámico, también se ocuparán de la capacitación de equipos locales “para practicar la evangelización relacional y para escuchar atentamente junto con sus vecinos, condiscípulos, amigos y compañeros de trabajo”.Se incluirían lo que Spellers llamó artistas y músicos de barrio y “personas de la localidad que darían testimonio”.“Habrá incluso un llamado al altar, pero esta vez a la hermandad de la Iglesia y a la acción vecinal”, dijo ella en su sermón.Puesto que el avivamiento no debe ser sólo una experiencia de exaltación única, Spellers dijo que habría un seguimiento para vincular a los recién llegados a iglesias y ministerios, fortalecer esos ministerios y buscar sitios donde pudieran plantarse nuevas comunidades de fe.La evangelización no sólo tiene lugar cara a cara en estos días y la Convención financió una importante iniciativa de evangelización digital. El Equipo de Trabajo sobre la Movilización de las Redes Sociales para la Evangelización facilitará la creación de nuevos materiales concebidos para preparar a “narradores digitales para Jesús”, dijo Spellers durante la reunión del Consejo.La Oficina de Comunicaciones de la Iglesia está encargada de administrar un renovado empeño de evangelización por Internet que no se encargará de promover nuevos contenidos, sino más bien tratar de encontrar a personas que tienen “grandes interrogantes sobre Dios y la fe, acerca de la comunidad” valiéndose de herramientas tales como Google AdWords, explicó Spellers. Este empeño tendrá lugar tanto en inglés como en español.La Convención también concibió una “red denominacional para la plantación de congregaciones y la capacitación y captación de plantadores”; la Resolución D005 asignó $3 millones para esta labor, contemplando más de $1 millón para el ministerio latino/hispano.Está en marcha el trabajo para actualizar el proceso de solicitud de subvenciones para la plantación de iglesias y más zonas de empresas de misión. Ese nuevo proceso debe darse a conocer en breve.Este trabajo también conlleva medios de aumentar la responsabilidad y la evaluación, y el hacerse más proactivo en la captación de personas y lugares, dijo Spellers. Y el presupuesto incluye un nuevo misionero para que la capacidad de plantar nuevas iglesias se agregue al empeño del Rdo. Thomas Brackett, misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para el comienzo de nuevas iglesias e iniciativas de misión.Snook describió el nuevo puesto como “otro obrero de la viña” y Spellers dijo que “sin más infraestructura, sin aumentar la capacidad del personal, estábamos lanzando la simiente del dinero de las subvenciones en un suelo árido y poco profundo”.Los que participan también quieren desarrollar una “comunidad de práctica” entre los plantadores de iglesias y otros evangelistas porque “puede ser una labor muy solitaria”, dijo Snook al Consejo.Los miembros del Consejo escucharon una y otra vez que, en toda la labor interconectada de evangelización y reconciliación racial, es esencial la colaboración de toda la Iglesia y con personas de otras iglesias que piensen igual.“Este no es un momento de competencia”, dijo Spellers en su sermón. “Los tiempos de la competencia entre denominaciones se acabaron. Es el momento de la colaboración en pro del Movimiento de Jesús”.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Easy Ways to Strengthen Your Muscular System

Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Just like a home that needs a strong foundation, our body also needs a robust muscle system because it acts as our body’s main pillar. Strong and toned muscles mean you can function and move at your best no matter how demanding the physical activities that you’re into. You can lift heavy objects, run at full speed, grip with full strength, and do just about anything because you’re physically fit.Nurses weigh-in on how to stay healthy.Unfortunately, it is observed that most young people nowadays do not pay enough attention, or aren’t consistent with keeping their muscular system strong and healthy. Blame the ever-changing lifestyle and demanding work that consumes the majority of our time. Instead of exercising, most of us prefer to hit the sack after work or during rest days. Fortunately, there are easy ways to compensate for it. You can keep your muscular system in tip-top shape by doing the following.Exercise If you are a fitness enthusiast, you will really understand that exercise is needed to keep your body fit and strong. But it is more than that. Exercising can help repair and condition the entire muscular system. It can even regulate the circulation of the blood, which keeps you energized for the whole day. If you want to focus on your muscular system, you have to know the specific exercises that you should do, such as squats, one-arm row, modified push-ups, shoulder press, biceps curls. You may also want to include kick-backs and planking to your exercise routine. If you’re a beginner, it may be difficult for your first days, but you’ll certainly be thankful for these hardships in the long run. Six healthy fats?Also, don’t be too hard on yourself. Having a daily exercise is good, but remember to take a rest too. The body needs to recover from these cycles of heavy exercise. Muscular workouts aren’t that easy because they are strenuous and tiresome, which is why you need to rest to recover. Your muscles need to recuperate so that on the next day, you can resume your workout routine.Take Supplements For Your MusclesWe want to gain all the nutrients in a natural way possible. However, most of the time, we just can’t achieve this goal. It owes to the fact that not all nutrients can be found in the food you consume every day. Good thing, there are many food supplements now that we can take to make up for nutrient deficiencies that we have. Some can be in the form of capsules, tablets, or powder. There is also a recommended soy protein powder that can enhance your ability to achieve your goals.Many fitness enthusiasts drink protein powder like Muscle Pharm, to fuel enough protein in their body to help them go on with diet and strengthen their bones. Taking protein food and drinks can also lessen the inflammations that you will get from doing intense exercise. If it is your first time to try it, you can check musclepharm whey protein reviews first and see how it helps people with their body goals.Make Sure to Get a Body Massage RegularlyGetting a massage is actually good for our muscles. It’s known for relieving soreness, imbalance, injury, muscle knots, and other chronic muscle pains. It even removes tension in your muscular system that lessens muscle pain and cramps. Also, it regulates the blood circulation that helps you relax and destress. The ideal duration to get a massage is at least twice a month or every two weeks. It will not be good if you overdo it as it will weaken your muscles and might give you bruises. Massage parlors and spas now offer different massage combinations such as Shiatsu, Swedish, trigger points, aromatherapy, deep tissue, sports, reflexology, and acupressure, just to name a few.If going to spas and massage clinics is not feasible, you can ask one of your family members to do a massage you. There are many how-to videos online about doing massage at home right now that you can take advantage of.It would be good to try the healing benefits of massage after a tiresome day at work or extensive workouts.Lessen Your Caffeine IntakeMany of us start our day with a cup of coffee because we think that our body needs it. Actually, it is not. If you want to take your health seriously, then you must stop, or at least minimize drinking coffee and other caffeinated drinks. According to the Caffeine Informer website, drinking four cups of coffee a day can lead to death. Together with Mayo Clinic, they conducted a study that says excessive drinking of coffee can increase the risk of death by up to 21%.Aside from that, other complications may occur, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks for young adults, gout attacks, cyst in women, insomnia, and more.For our muscles, caffeine is not good because it absorbs a lot of calcium that our muscular system needs. Instead of drinking coffee, you can have a cup of green tea instead to boost your energy. Get Enough SleepThe easiest way to keep our muscular system and body healthy is to get adequate sleep. Yes, it’s pretty simple. Get at least seven or eight hours of sleep every day. But many of us are still having a problem getting enough sleep? No matter how busy you are at work or school, make sure that you give yourself time to sleep. You can sacrifice unnecessary things that you are doing daily to get more time to sleep, such as browsing the internet, night out with your friends, or watching movies until dawn. These are only some of the unhealthy activities that you don’t need to do. Learn to manage your time and reserve your energy for a useful purpose, and surely you will have a happy, healthy life.    TakeawayFor us to perform at max, it’s important that we pay attention to our bodies. And having weak limbs or muscles is something that you need to fix if you want to live an active and healthy lifestyle. By following the tips mentioned above, you’ll be one step away from achieving it.

The Commission remains committed to treating the English and Welsh languages on an equal basis in its work with the 9,000 registered charities in Wales.The Commission engages with charities, members of the public and other organisations in a variety of ways, including by email, telephone, via the internet and at public meetings. The Welsh language scheme details how the Commission provides the opportunity to communicate in Welsh in these and other situations. The scheme also sets out the Commission’s undertaking to publish Welsh language ./guidance and other core material.Harry Iles, Head of the Charity Commission’s Wales office, said:“The Charity Commission is fully committed to providing our Welsh speaking customers with the same high standard of service that we provide in English. We have a number of Welsh speakers in the Commission and are happy for people to contact us in English or in Welsh. By revising our Welsh language scheme we are demonstrating our continuing commitment to the Welsh language.”Meirion Prys Jones, Chief Executive of the Welsh Language Board, said:“The Charity Commission is a good example of an organisation that has set out to increase and improve the level of its bilingual provision in a systematic way since the approval of its first language scheme in 2006. In revising the scheme, the Commission has reinforced and extended its commitment to continuous improvement for the benefit of charities, trustees, volunteers and the public in Wales. We are pleased to formally approve the Charity Commission’s revised Welsh language scheme this year and look forward to seeing the Commission achieving its commitments over the next 3 years.”As well as setting out how the Commission treats English and Welsh on an equal basis when working with charities, members of the public and other organisations in Wales, the scheme includes an undertaking to work closely with the National Assembly for Wales on Welsh Language Act matters. In addition, the Commission will consider fully the needs of Welsh language users in relation to any legislation on which the Commission might be consulted or might promote in the future.The Commission will regularly monitor progress in implementing the scheme and will produce an annual report on this. The monitoring will include the use of opinion surveys on the Commission’s provision of Welsh language services.

Fundraising is a leading charity concern of NI public

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Fundraising is a leading charity concern of NI public Members of the public have submitted the vast majority of the 150 plus concerns about charities received by the Commission since investigatory work began in February 2011.This report identifies four common themes behind recent fundraising related concerns about charities as:· Street and public collections;· Trading subsidiaries;· Financial transparency around donations received about charities;· The role of fundraising agents and professional fundraisers.It is designed to function “as a resource for charity trustees, volunteers and supporters assisting charities in avoiding common fundraising pitfalls and increasing public trust and confidence in charities by promoting good standards alongside good intention”.Charity Commission Chief Executive Frances McCandless explained how the report can serve to promote public trust and confidence in charities. She said: “The great work of local charities must be recognised and the public are keen to support this. Levels of charitable giving have held up well despite pressure on household finances. It is vital therefore that people can have confidence in the charities that they donate to.“This new report sets out what the public can expect from charity fundraisers and how their vigilance can help the Commission to regulate charities and promote good charity fundraising standards”.The full report can be accessed on the Charity Commission’s About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tamir Rice remembered

first_imgOn Nov. 21, at the Martin Luther King Jr. branch of the Cleveland Public Library, the “Greater Cleveland Civil and Human Rights Network” held one of many events this weekend to call for justice for Tamir Rice. Nov. 22 represents one year since cops gunned down 12-year-old Tamir, who was playing outside of the Cleveland Cudell Recreation Center. A day after he was shot, Tamir died at the hospital. Shown holding Tamir’s photo is his mother, Samaria Rice, with attorney Subodh Chandra. On Nov. 18, there was a picket line in front of Cleveland City Hall, protesting the appeal by officer Michael Brelo.  Brelo was the only cop  put on trial for the murders of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams.  On Nov. 29, 2012, some 137 shots were fired into the car of the two unarmed African-Americans with Brelo unloading 49 rounds into the car.  He was found not guilty on May 23, 2014, and now wants his job back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TheEnd provides unique on-campus experience for students

She currently serves as a line editor. Makenzie Stallo printTheEnd is transforming weekends on campus by introducing a variety of free entertainment options for students.The organization began last year and coordinates events that range from movie nights and murder mystery dinners to performances by comedians and musical acts.Assistant Director of Student Activities Brad Thompson said that this semester theEnd is focused on bringing performers to campus that students want to see.“I want to keep listening to what students want to see and experience through these events,” Thompson said. “It doesn’t always have to be a band or a comedian. We want to be about bringing high quality, unique experiences to our campus.”Paying attention to what the students want has paid off, as the majority of theEnd events usually fill the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom to maximum capacity.Along with theEnd’s sister organizations, theCrew and Hall Crew, about 500-600 events are put on annually for students.TheEnd is similar to those other branches of Student Activities through a shared goal to create a sense of community on campus through its events.“It creates a common experience which further reinforces [the students’] love for TCU and their experiences outside of the classroom,” Thompson said.Sophomore Morgan Jacob thinks theEnd provides students with options for fun times on campus.“I think they’re awesome. It’s a great alternative to going out to parties and other things on campus,” Jacob said.Junior Bennett Holland said that anything that gets students involved in on-campus community benefits the students.“I think that any event anyone puts on benefits everyone at TCU. I think it’s good to provide positive social experiences,” Holland said.The most important thing to Thompson is for students to understand that on the weekends they have an option for a fun and safe experience.“We really want to encourage people to make good, healthy choices but if we’re not providing them with something that’s compelling, it’s hard for that message to resonate,” Thompson said.Thompson said theEnd has made the campus more vibrant on weekends by giving students the opportunity to attend compelling events that are unique to the TCU community.
