The potential impact of an esports regulatory body in the US

first_imgA governmental body with the ability to enact and enforce rulings would greatly impact the public perception of esports. As of right now, rule enforcement is entirely up to the tournament organiser, which can lead to some very messy situations, such as StarLadder banning Canadian team Lazarus for playing with a coach while allowing MiBR to do the same thing in the playoffs.  No partners have been mentioned yet but a new overseer will need to cooperate with the existing ecosystem. Anti-cheating agencies like the ESIC and tournament hosts such as the Electronic Sports League will likely become involved. Betting sites should consider partnerships with existing regulatory groups as they’ll become even more coveted once acknowledged by legal bodies. The potential impact of an esports regulatory body in the US “We have already seen how sanctioning professional boxing and UFC has helped tourism, generated tax revenue, created jobs and enhanced the Nevada visitor experience by providing them a wonderfully entertaining experience,” he wrote. Email Address For all its glitz and glamor, the esports industry is still in its developmental stages. The current standards for tournament hosting would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. There’s still plenty of room to progress as Senator Kieckhefer acknowledges.  Image: BogoGames/Creative Commons Nevada State Senator Ben Kieckhefer is currently drafting legislation for a governmental esports oversight body, which would be modelled after the Nevada Athletic Commission. The proposed board would issue official esports competition licenses and officiate events in the state, but what would this mean for esports in the US? By Kenneth Williams Betting operators should keep a close eye on Senator Kieckhefer’s proposals. A governing body is a huge step towards legitimising esports events in the public eye, meaning general awareness for esports should increase as a result. Topics: Esports esports regulation How can this impact esports betting in the US? Esports 12th April 2021 | By contenteditor Moreover, existing esports infrastructure in Vegas, including the HyperX Esports Arena at The Luxor, will become even more valuable for their proximity to America’s sole esports oversight committee. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Those are just a handful of recent incidents in Counter-Strike, but similar situations constantly appear across competitive titles. A legal body could interfere with improper rules enforcement and hold tournament organisers accountable. Multiple gambling experts claim that the move will further centralise Las Vegas as the United States’ esports capital. Seth Schorr of the Nevada Independent likens the current state of esports to the glory days of Las Vegas boxing. The current lack of oversight is the biggest obstacle between esports and their potential. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive alone provided hundreds of cheating accusations in 2020, many of which were investigated and confirmed by the Esports Integrity Commission. More than 40 CS:GO coaches were banned for exploiting camera glitches in a massive scandal and match-fixing concerns still run rampant at the lower levels of the professional scene.

Thanks.And by the way, as a child a I remember neighbor’s Renault Dauphine had a horn and another device that sounded something like a bell for urban use and to warn pedestrians. Rector Washington, DC Rector Martinsville, VA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Pittsburgh, PA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Danielle Tumminio[Episcopal News Service] I was driving to a church meeting a few weeks ago, when I saw the car coming.  The driver was going the kind of fast that wouldn’t make a cop turn on the sirens but that was still over the speed limit.  And since my car was stopped at a light on the intersecting street behind a tree, the driver couldn’t see me.So I honked the horn. I intended it to be a gentle honk, a pitter-pattery reminder that I existed, that I would appreciate it if the oncoming vehicle veered just slightly to the left, so that the driver wouldn’t feel guilty about hitting me and I could get to my meeting on time and neither of us would have to wait on the phone for an insurance agent.But as I leaned onto the steering wheel to gently tap the horn, the sound that came out wasn’t a playful lowercase honk, it was a flaming, angry, uppercase: HONK!Because, of course, cars only have one volume, and it’s usually an angry one.From one driver to another, I find this frustrating.  There are so many different sentiments I want to communicate in my car, but my vehicle doesn’t let me.  There’s the subtle honk I hope will warn a biker I am behind him; there’s the infuriated honk when someone cuts me off; there’s the warning honk if I see an accident ahead, and there’s the polite, would-you-mind-if-I-cut-ahead-of-you-to-get-into-the-turn-lane-at-this-light honk.But since car horns have one volume and one pitch, my polite honk sounds enraged, and my irritated one sounds enraged, and so does my frightened one and my exasperated one, and really, it’s amazing that I—or any other driver—am able to communicate anything at all, given the lack of nuance.Unfortunately, car horns aren’t the only voices that are too loud and blunt when it comes to communication.  Media outlets have a reputation for sensational, misleading headlines that oversimplify complicated problems, and politicians deliver sound bytes instead of detailed answers to questions.  Spouses argue without budging on their position or listening to the value of their partner’s perspective.  Church leaders have gained a reputation for wanting to back away from pressing theological concerns and instead offer pithy aphorisms that lack the nourishment needed to sustain the soul.So how can we learn a new honk?  How can we, as Christians, in whatever ministry we’ve been called to pursue, communicate better?Let’s go back to the car horn.  While it’s true that car horns only have one pitch and one volume, one thing the driver does control is the length of the beep.  There’s the extended I-hate-your-guts-and-I-don’t-care-if-I-wake-up-the-folks-in-that-nearby-apartment-building beep and the short just-letting-you-know-I’m-behind-that-tree beep.  So even though the car horn only makes one noise, that noise can still mean different things.And there’s always the possibility of new technology, of a car company that will substitute that wiry honking for the human voice or color-accompanied beeps, where red signifies a broken down vehicle in the passing lane, or yellow a tire rim lying in the road ahead.As with a car horn, we need to learn a new way to honk.  We need to make use of the nuances already available to us and seek to revolutionize communication, to remember that not every situation calls for a blast.  Some call for a beep, and others for silence.  So instead of shrieking at a spouse without giving him a chance to respond, try a shorter honk, and then listen to what he has to say.  Rather than issuing deliberately inflammatory sound bytes, politicians could revolutionize their profession by answering questions directly, by speaking honestly.  And when a congregant or seeker approaches a church leader with a traumatic experience or pressing theological concern, church leaders can remember—as many already do—that it’s okay to say, “I don’t have all the answers, but I am with you, and God is too.”We, like the car horn, have a long way to go before our beeps and honks and long shrill blasts are as finessed as they could be.  And though the process of finding a new way to communicate can be difficult — painful even—in the moments when it’s hardest for us to find the right words, we can always vent by sneaking down to the garage and giving the car horn a tap.  Because even if the sound isn’t perfect, it’s a starting point from which we can grow.— The Rev. Danielle Tumminio lectures at Yale University and is the author of God and Harry Potter at Yale.  She currently serves as an interim associate at St. Anne in-the-Fields Episcopal Church in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

House PS is the result of an ongoing investigation of the courtyard house typology with all its Mediterranean connotations of climate, shade and intimacy. In this house, the courtyard is designed in section rather than in plan. Placed above the lower ground floor and below the bedrooms of the upper floor, the courtyard is shaded from the hot summer sun. This central, shaded exterior room is a natural extension of the interior spaces of the house.

The southern family entrance is located under a cantilevered canopy and along a path leading towards the central courtyard. The northern formal entrance is through the double volume entrance hall and only then is the central courtyard revealed. The house is situated between 2 gardens – a lower south garden with swimming pool and the upper east winter garden. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe proportions of the house are regulated by the golden section and Le Corbusier’s modular. This investigation determines the dimensions in plan and in section and is revealed in the windows and bespoke timberwork. The house is built over 3 different floor plates. The lower level is a long rectangle including a large playroom that opens out onto the lower garden and swimming pool. The ground floor is an “L” shaped plan including the entrance lobby, living room, dining room and kitchen and folds around the central courtyard. The top floor is “U” shaped in plan around a central narrow void with a family room in the middle and bedrooms on either side. Save this picture!Within the intimate internal courtyard, the openings are large and generous and allow for interior and exterior spaces to merge. In contrast to this, the windows on the exterior walls are sheltered and controlled creating a tough protective shell. Save this picture!© Amit GeronThe interior spaces slowly reveal themselves along the carefully organized route starting from the lower ground floor up through the house and ending in a hidden curved staircase leading up to a private roof garden and meditation space. Save this picture!© Amit GeronConcealed skylights above the staircase provide soft reflected light that highlights the pure white surfaces. These skylights also open to provide for the natural ventilation of the interior spaces. The white minimalist interior is further enhanced by the cool grey bespoke furniture.

“No one shall be subjected to enforced disappearance”

first_imgCHINAHuman rights campaigner Govruud Huuchinhuu, of the Southern MongolianDemocratic Alliance (SMDA), has been missing since she was released on27 January 2011 from Tongliao hospital (通辽), Inner Mongolia (northernChina), where she was being treated for cancer. She had been underhouse arrest since November 2010 for urging online that Mongoliandissidents celebrate the release of journalist and cyberdissidentHada, who heads the SDMA and defends China’s Mongolian minority.Officials say he was freed after more than 15 years at the end of hissentence on 10 December 2010 but he is still in prison. There hasbeen no news of him for several weeks. August 30, 2011 – Updated on January 25, 2016 “No one shall be subjected to enforced disappearance” IRANHuman rights and pro-democracy activist Pirouz Davani, editor of thepaper Pirouz, vanished in late August 1998. The paper Kar-e-Karagarsaid on 28 November that year he had been executed. Akbar Ganji, ofSobh-é-Emrouz, who was investigating the case, confirmed this in lateNovember 2000 and accused the then prosecutor of the specialecclesiastical court, Mohseni Ejehi, (the current prosecutor-general)of being involved in his death. The judiciary has not investigated.Journalist Kouhyar Goudarzi has been held in secret since 1 August2011 for unknown reasons and justice officials have not said where heis being held. ERITREAMost of the 30 or so journalists in prison are considered to havedisappeared because of the problems of finding them and the regime’srefusal to give any information about where they are and their stateof health. The best known is Dawit Isaac, founder of the now-closedweekly Setit and holding dual Eritrean and Swedish nationality, whosince his arrest on 23 September 2001 has alternated between prisonand hospital spells in the capital, Asmara. He was transferred in2009 from a provincial prison in Embatkala to the air force hospitalin Asmara, where he was treated for several months. Then he vanishedand nobody has been allowed to visit him. He may be in Asmara’sKarchelle prison or in the Eiraeiro prison, northeast of the capital.Other vanished journalists include the editor and co-founder of thefortnightly Meqaleh, Mattewos Habteab, arrested in Asmara on 19September 2001, and sports writer Temesgen Gebreyesus, of thefortnightly Keste Debena, who was arrested the next day. News SRI LANKAPrageeth Ekneligoda, journalist and cartoonist with Lankaenews,vanished in Colombo on 24 January 2010. No progress has been made inefforts to find him. Help by sharing this information RSF_en Iran and China have turned enforced disappearance into a favouredmethod of censoring free speech. The uprisings in Libya and Syria haveled to extra-judicial arrests of many journalists. Mexico has manycases of unsolved disappearances of journalists. The inhumane prisonconditions in Eritrea, a small country forgotten by the internationalcommunity, must be condemned. And finally, disappearances are alsocommon in Pakistan, the world’s most dangerous country forjournalists. Reporters Without Borders highlights several key casesbelow. Organisation As the world marks International Day of the Disappeared today,Reporters Without Borders notes that many countries are stillviolating international law on this matter, including theInternational Convention for the Protection of All Persons fromEnforced Disappearance, which the UN General Assembly adopted in 2006.Reporters Without Borders calls for the universal ratification of thisconvention, which has so far been signed by 91 countries and ratifiedby 29. Combating enforced disappearance is vital in the struggleagainst dictatorships and arbitrary rule.Enforced disappearance includes both secret imprisonment and secrethouse arrest, in which the families of the victims are denied anyinformation about their fate or where they are being held. It is aform of abduction and sometimes ends in murder.It is a radical method of oppression in which human rights defenders,opposition activists, free speech activists and independentjournalists are removed from society because they are often on thefront line of the struggle against authoritarian regimes. As wellcensoring calls for freedom and justice, dictatorships target thosewho make the calls.Enforced disappearances, which contravene international law and oftenthe law of the countries where they take place, must be condemnedfirmly. Without an effective struggle against this evil, withoutbinding measures that require respect for the basic legal rules onarrest and detention, any improvement in fundamental freedoms isimpossible. The widespread or systematic practice of enforceddisappearance is a crime against humanity. The prosecution of thoseresponsible should be a priority.Article 2 of the convention defines “enforced disappearance” as “thearrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation ofliberty by agents of the state or by persons or groups of personsacting with the authorization, support or acquiescence of the state,followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or byconcealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person,which place such a person outside the protection of the law.” MEXICOJournalist María Esther Aguilar Cansimbe, of the daily papers Diariode Zamora and Cambio de Michoacán (in the southwestern state ofMichoacán), disappeared in 2009. Marco Antonio López Ortiz, newseditor of the Acapulco paper El Sur (in the southwestern state ofGuerrero), vanished in June 2011. No official investigation hasproduced any results. VIETNAMThe netizen Paulus Le Son was arrested on 3 August 2011 in Hanoi in the course of a major police operation targeting a dozen Catholics. There has been no news of him since then. It was the second time he was arrested this year. PAKISTANJournalist Rehmatullah Darpakhel was kidnapped in North Waziristan on11 August 2011. MIDDLE EASTMany foreign and Libyan journalists were detained for several days bysupporters of the Gaddafi regime with no news of where they were beingheld or their conditions of detention. Disappearances are alsofrequent in Syria of journalists, activists and witnesses to therepression by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. last_img read more
