US states would be required to have betting legislation approved by the US Attorney General and purchase official major league data under plans for federal oversight outlined in a leaked Congressional draft bill.The comprehensive legislation would force states to apply for approval from the Attorney General when implementing new sports betting laws and regulations. However it does not specify if this would be required retrospectively for those states where betting is already legal and regulated.In a nod to the sports leagues and those lobbying for integrity fees, all operators would be required to use official league data until at least 2023. A National Sports Wagering Clearinghouse would be founded to monitor for any unusual betting patterns, while the Sports Bribery Act of 1964 would be strengthened by criminalising the act of betting based on non-public information.Looking beyond state borders, the draft bill would alter the Wire Act of 1961 to allow sportsbooks to operate across state lines through compacts.iGamingBusiness.com understands the 37-page discussion draft was drawn up and circulated in the US Senate. The document is neither titled or dated and it is unclear who precisely the author has sought to discuss it with. Some media reports suggest the author was retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch (pictured), one of the authors of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 1992 who announced plans to progress federal legislation immediately after its repeal in May. Hatch, who is to retire at the end of this month, has yet to comment on the document.Responding to the leak, the American Gaming Association (AGA) reiterated its support for state autonomy in betting regulation.“Since the Supreme Court’s ruling in May, the AGA has consistently maintained that federal legislation regarding sports betting is not necessary,” said Chris Cylke, AGA’s vice president of government relations.“That underlying position remains unchanged. At the same time, we remain committed to maintaining an open and constructive dialogue with policymakers considering sports betting legislation at any level of government.”In May, Hatch described his fears of a “Wild West world of sports gambling” following the “devastating” repeal of PASPA.Already looking to federal governance of sports betting he said in a statement: “Through balanced legislation, I believe we can create federal standards that not only align with constitutional principles but also uphold the integrity of the sports we love.”While some have pointed to Hatch as the author of the bill, its text is similar to plans outlined in a briefing by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in August. At the time Schumer proposed a requirement that all sportsbooks only use official league data.The leak comes two months after the ‘Post-PASPA: An Examination of Sports Betting in America’ hearing on Capitol Hill, when organisations such as the AGA and National Football League (NFL) were among those to give testimony to the Judiciary Committee.In his closing remarks, hearing chair Jim Sensenbrenner suggested that the federal authorities must have some involvement in the oversight of betting across the country. “For Congress to do nothing is the worst possible alternative,” he said.Following the repeal of PASPA, seven states now have legal, state-regulated sports betting industries, with Pennsylvania and Rhode Island the most recent market entrants.

John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, an Amazon subsidiary, is a member of The Motley Fool’s board of directors. Royston Wild owns shares of Tritax Big Box REIT and Unilever. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Amazon. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tesco, Tritax Big Box REIT, and Unilever and recommends the following options: short January 2022 $1940 calls on Amazon and long January 2022 $1920 calls on Amazon. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images It’s clear the Covid-19 crisis has the capacity to damage global growth for years to come. But this doesn’t mean UK share investors should pull up the drawbridge and stop buying stocks.There are still plenty of top-quality UK shares that should deliver spectacular profits growth in the coming years. Many of these have the potential to become multi-baggers too (these are stocks that provide returns several times larger than their original cost).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…Box up a beautyTritax Big Box REIT (LSE: BBOX) is one such irresistible UK share. And it’s a particularly great pick for dividend chasers. Under real estate investment trust rules, the business has to distribute 90% of profits to its shareholders in the form of dividends. And, with e-commerce volumes tipped to explode, investors like myself can expect some pretty chunky payouts in the years ahead.A survey just released by corporate finance house Clearwater International spells out the bright outlook for Tritax Big Box. This showed revenues among the 21 mid-market internet retailers it questioned had risen 15% since April. Some participants had seen week-on-week sales rocket by as much as 50% too. And, critically, the report showed repeat orders from newly-acquired customers has increased.As Clearwater comments: “[This] points to longer term revenue growth.” And it naturally bodes well for Tritax Big Box, a provider of large warehousing and logistics facilities to blue-chip companies like Amazon, Unilever and Tesco. Its illustrious list of tenants is another reason why I like this particular UK share as it provides terrific earnings visibility irrespective of broader economic conditions. This is why the property giant’s on course to collect a whopping 99% of rents for the fourth quarter.Tritax Big Box shares don’t come cheap. At current prices, the FTSE 250 firm changes hands on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 24 times. But I believe this UK share is worth every penny. Besides, a fatty 4% dividend yield for this financial year helps to take the edge off.Another multi-bagging UK share?Investors looking for rock-bottom earnings multiples and big dividend yields might be more interested in ContourGlobal (LSE: GLO). Today, the power station developer trades on an ultra-low price-to-earnings growth (PEG) reading of 0.1 for 2020. The company offers up a jaw-dropping 6% dividend yield as well.Like Tritax Big Box, this UK share can look forward to terrific profits growth during the 2020s. In this case, the bottom line should be driven by rocketing energy demand as global populations rise. The International Energy Agency reckons energy demand will double during the next 10 years.But this isn’t the only reason why I like ContourGlobal. Its expertise in the fast-growing field of ‘green’ energy should help turbocharge profits growth as well. ContourGlobal estimates the bulk of the $1.5trn that’ll need to be invested in energy supply over the next decade will be dedicated to renewables and low-carbon sources.

“Many ACEVO members tell us that one of their biggest challenges is a commissioning environment that doesn’t meet the needs of their organisation, and by extension the needs of the people they support. Leaders of voluntary organisations have a vital role to play in driving change and modelling new ways of working to create a more balanced system. We are excited to work with NCVO and Lloyds Bank Foundation to explore this issue together.”Paul Streets OBE, Chief Executive of Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, said:“We know that commissioning and contracting is a significant challenge for many charities and of course it needs reform. But voluntary organisations themselves have choices as to whether and how they bid, contract and collaborate.“Both smaller and larger charities bring distinctive benefits which are too often being lost. It’s vital that we rebalance the relationship between large and small charities to find a new way forward that best harnesses both the value of small and the capacity of larger for our mutual ambitions of ensuring people can access the services they need and trust.” 201 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. NCVO, ACEVO and Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales have teamed up in a project to help rebalance the relationship between large and small voluntary organisations when bidding for and delivering public services.The project, ‘Rebalancing the Relationship’, aims to examine current bidding and commissioning practices, and explore how voluntary organisations of different sizes can work better together in bidding for and delivering public services. A call for evidence to be launched in coming weeks will seek views from the sector. This evidence, combined with further desk-based and qualitative research, will form the basis of a research report expected in the autumn.The report will inform a series of engagement events with voluntary organisations to develop recommendations to improve current practices, which will be the subject of a consultation with the sector, ahead of a final report early next year.The project will consider the wider commissioning environment, however the partners expect the focus of their recommendations to be on how organisations themselves can take action to improve how they work with others.The work will be overseen by a small steering group made up of the project partners and individuals with expertise in leading both large and small voluntary organisations.A wider advisory group will be asked to provide feedback and advice to the project.Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive at NCVO, said:“For the best outcomes for people using public services, we need a system that allows a range of organisations to flourish and deliver high quality services.“We want to look under the bonnet of current commissioning practices to explore the issues faced by organisations of all sizes. We will then work with voluntary organisations to explore new ways of cooperating to ensure the long-term sustainability of organisations of all sizes across the voluntary sector delivering public services.”Vicky Browning, Chief Executive at ACEVO, said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Tagged with: Finance Melanie May | 20 March 2019 | News 200 total views, 2 views today Sector bodies unite to address imbalance between large & small charities in public services
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the constant threats and hate speech targeting Nicaraguan journalists critical of President Daniel Ortega’s government after Gerall Chávez, a journalist living in exile in neighbouring Costa Rica, was sent an anonymous message and video containing gruesome death threats.

In a report published on 27 July, the Association of Nicaraguan Independent Journalists (PCIN) said it had registered a total of 351 press freedom violations from 1 March to 25 July, including physical attacks, threats, harassment, smear campaigns and unjustified judicial proceedings.Nicaragua is ranked 117th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.
