The Indiana Senate has passed a bill that would legalise sports betting in the state, with the House now set to debate the legislation. Regions: US Indiana 27th February 2019 | By contenteditor The Indiana Senate has passed a bill that could lead to the legalisation of sports betting in the state, with the House now set to debate the legislation. Senate Bill 552 would allow licensed casinos across the state to offer wagering services on both professional and college sports as early as next year. The Senate approved the bill by a vote of 38-11, allowing the legislation to move forward to the House for further discussion. The bill has already gained approval from the Senate Public Policy Committee. The bill remains subject to amendments, but the current version states Indiana casinos would be permitted to offer sports betting in person or online to punters who are at least 21 years old. It would also allow for live table games to feature at racetracks from as early as this year. However, the bill would not allow betting on esports contents or any high school or youth sports events. In addition to sports betting, the complex bill covers a range of subjects related to the gambling sector, including applications for a Terre Haute casino licence and a possible inland relocation of the city of Gary’s Lake Michigan casino. Senator Jon Ford of Terre Haute, who is co-sponsoring the bill with Senator Mark Messmer, said that tax revenue estimates for sports betting would be between $3m (£2.3m/€2.6m) and $18m per year. This would bring a welcome boost to the state’s casinos, which last year posted collective revenue of $442m, down from $680m in 2010, according to official figures. Senate Bill 552 has already gained the support of the biggest sports properties in the state, in the form of the Indianapolis Colts NFL American football team and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which hosts the annual Indy 500 motor-racing event.Image: Mark Goebel Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Indiana edges closer to sports betting as Senate passes bill Email Address Tags: Online Gambling Casino & games AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter

Rooted in a Bangladeshi land, not far from Commercial capital of the region, Chattogram, SHIKOR is a country house that rediscovers in the simplicity of forms all the charm of rural architecture in a contemporary way. Bengali term “SHIKOR” used to denote “ROOTS”: The origin from which it all begins. It is the home retreat of a local family, whose history inevitably is intertwined with the past of the land on which it is built.Save this picture!© Asif SalmanJust as in almost all Bangladeshi families, the owners’ ancestors were farmers. ; It is only in time that successive generations have moved from the countryside to neighboring urban areas in the years to come. That’s why clients, both teachers, they live their retirement life in the city. Khan left his father’s rural home to work as a teacher, living mainly in the quarters of school campuses. But his memories, or rather, his roots, have always kept him strongly connected to the village. And because the ancient dwelling, almost falling into disuse, was now losing all its original charm (and habitability), the Khans decided to build a new one. “The intention was to create a space for children and grandchildren in such a way that they would spend their time during the holidays, as well as to pass a witness on to the new generations.Save this picture!© Asif SalmanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Asif SalmanThe result is a large farmhouse on over 440 square meters of surface that winks at the most traditional constructions: similar to a farm, Shikor showcases the handcrafted workmanship of local artisans, making the most of all the natural resources granted by the landscape. Perforated outlying walls and skylights convert every corner of the house into a living museum of light and shadow. Save this picture!© Asif SalmanThe experiences of the spaces vary from sunrise to sunset, from summer to winter. Volumes of the built complex support the territory and what it can offer: the volume made from bricks, for example, vanishes from south to south-east to allow breezes to circulate from all three directions. And while the ground floor is divided between the Kachari,Save this picture!© Asif SalmanThe formal living room, located in an isolated front, and the dining Hall that, at the rear tip, is exposed into the nature through the Poschati verandah, The Projected Balcony. The layout of the upper floor is inspired by a resort. In order to maintain a balance between privacy and conviviality, the Gudam, the bedrooms, are allocated on the First floor. The fulcrum of the project is an indoor pond which, is placed into the Cavaedium, recreating the same atmosphere of a traditional Jolghat, a Screened Pond stair for female bath.Save this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Asif SalmanMade of terracotta Bricks, the Khans’ country house also houses a series of furniture made of recycled wood, salvaged from old houses.

He spoke of how the test requires the blind candidates to take visual and spacial understanding questions, without any appropriate training or appropriate alternatives.The judge was speaking at the Valedictory Session of the 3-day International Summit on Legal Professionals with Disabilities, organised virtually.”If the CLAT or anyone at CLAT is listening to me, it is very important to address these issues at the earliest. The CLAT by its very design, its architectural design, perpetrates an exclusion of some of the most talented candidates”, he urged.”The American equivalent of the CLAT, which is the LSAT, was challenged in court on the ground of its Logic Games being inaccessible to the blind. A settlement was arrived at in 2019, Where the Law School Admission Council agreed to do away with such questions and develop a new version of the test in four years where the analytical reasoning ability would be tested in a manner suitable to the Blind. The settlement states that the LSAT is devoted to ensuring that the test is conducted in a place and manner accessible to all, that it is fair…’we support everyone who is interested in taking the test’, they said”, pointed out Justice Chandrachud.He expounded that the challenges of the disabled in the legal arena, far from ending when they enter Law School, in fact only begin then on account of the absence of a barrier-free environment and any accessibility audit to identify the barriers. “So far as internship and involvement in college life is concerned, it is riddled with biases, lack of understanding and an environment which is not geared up to meet their needs”, he said.The judge recounted an instance of how a blind law student was addressed at an internship at a top law firm by a partner on “those with special needs”. He urged the law firms and the lawyers to not treat allowing, permitting and enabling disabled lawyers to work at their offices as part of their corporate social responsibility, but as a realisation of rights and as owing it to the society.”They must be treated like anybody else, but the additional facilities must be provided”, stated the judge.Narrating another experience of a hearing-impaired lawyer, Justice Chandrachud expressed, “I ask myself is there a methodology in place so that a hearing-impaired lawyer, who wishes to address my court, is able to tell in advance that this is the case he wishes to argue and to be able to access the court? So that the facilities which are already ingrained in the infrastructure can be effectuated to enable him a meaningful dialogue on a level platform?””Several law students have experienced that the approach of those in the positions of power towards them is ‘now that you are here, we have no choice but to accommodate you’. The burden of facilitation cannot be placed squarely on their shoulders! We must have an adequate mechanism and equal opportunity cells in law schools, provide them a platform to voice their concerns, treat them as an integral part of the community, and provide those with invisible disabilities the whole canopy of accommodation including extra time in examinations, scribes, rest intervals”, voiced the judge.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

This week’s lettersThere is so much to gain from IIP According to a recent survey by the Institute of Directors, the impact ofInvestors In People on the bottom line is limited (News, 13 November). Notwithstanding, two-thirds of directors from companies using IIP said theybelieved that the quality of training and development within their companieshad improved. A creditable nine out of 10 directors of Investors in People standard users,or companies committed to obtaining recognition, acknowledged that theirinvolvement with the scheme had improved their employees’ ability to do theirjobs. If I informed my main board that we intended to introduce more focusedtraining, improve people development and make our workforce more productive –but that they should not expect to see increased profitability – then it wouldnot be either the value of IIP nor the abilities of our employees that would becalled into question. For those companies that seek and embrace best business practice, IIP is aninvaluable guide and support on the road to improved growth, productivity andprofitability. Jim Armour Managing director, WTA Airfreight, Heathrow Lipgloss survey is bare faced cheek I was most disappointed, but probably not that surprised, to read that afterall the work that we have done on equal opportunities our careers still rest onwhether or not we are wearing the appropriate shade of lipgloss (News, 27November). Perhaps the path to the boardroom for women is via the make-up counter andnot via qualifications and experience, and maybe that answers a lot ofquestions about the glass ceiling. Like most of us when we are buying “grooming products”, maybe thedirectors in question need to pay less attention to the packaging, and moretowards what is inside. Cath Howard HR manager, Sense, London It pays to stand out from crowd So business culture is based upon conformity (Comment, 27 November)? Mainstream education in the UK operates on the basis of behaviouralconformity in order to manoeuvre sizeable groups of children towardspre-defined outcomes. Why, then, are we surprised when our organisations emulate this model? Creatively minded children often struggle in our conformist educationalestablishments, where the mediocre and predictable are more manageable thanflair and unpredictability. As those graduating from our learning establishments enter the workplace,they bring with them all they have learned – the facts and behaviours that havebeen necessary for them to succeed in their previous environments. Having spent a great deal of time working with companies, wishing to unlearnthese educationally expedient, but business inhibiting behaviours, I have greatempathy with the conformists. It’s worked for you since childhood. But the unpredictability of life and business often require more creativeand urgent solutions to problems. Of course all organisations require a unique operational culture, but for acompany to follow our schools’ conformist culture by default displays amisunderstanding of the concept of organisational learning.
