Failure to do so would see the state miss out on around $75m in revenue, funding for education, and both job creation and retention, he said.“NY will be stuck like a disabled car on the shoulder, while we allow an illegal sports betting business in our state thrive and idly watch other neighboring states pass us up with enormous revenue gains from mobile sports betting,” he said.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Concern about exodus of journalists, as regime steps up suppression of news

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders keeps on getting requests for help from terrified Iranian journalists who have been forced to flee their country after receiving summonses from the authorities. With 32 of their colleagues now detained in Iran and with a president and a Supreme Leader bent on suppressing all criticism, around 30 journalists have fled since last June’s disputed elections.“This is the biggest exodus of journalists since the 1979 revolution,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Describing news media as ‘means used in an attempt to overthrow the state’, the regime is ridding itself of undesired witnesses by jailing them or getting them to flee. Photographers, cameramen, bloggers and reporters for newspapers that have been closed down – all are being accused of ‘acting against national security’.”The press freedom organisation added: “The luckiest are able to get to Europe or the United States, but most have to expose themselves to great danger by fleeing with the help of smugglers. In the countries where they seek refuge – Turkey, Iraq or even Afghanistan – they are exposed to more harassment and police surveillance. The provisions of the 1951 Geneva Convention are ill-suited for such an emergency. European countries must open their doors to these journalists and support free expression in Iran.”As well as the human tragedy, the exodus of Iranian journalists increases the risk of a complete news blackout in Iran. News and information have become synonymous with repression. One Iranian journalist had to flee because she told the BBC about Neda Aghasoltani, the young woman who in death became a symbol of opposition to the regime. Another journalist, a photographer, fled after one of his photos was used prominently by the international media. A third had to leave after talking about the situation of detainees in his blog.A voice for those who have been silencedIt is vital to support initiatives being undertaken by Iranian reporters and photographers with a view to expressing their views and putting out information. Reporters Without Borders has helped launch a website, The Iranian Journalists, which is a multimedia platform for disseminating information about the media and journalists, and for collecting articles, photos and videos provided by journalists themselves.Reporters Without Borders, which published a Handbook for Exiled Journalists last June, has been in repeated contact with the UN refugee agency and with western embassies about the plight of these journalists. It is also providing urgent financial assistance to these men and women who are paying a high price for their determination to do their job.Ali Zare, a photographer who was arrested and tortured by militiamen and police for 48 hours in a location that he was unable to identify, has described to Reporters Without Borders how detainees are mistreated.

The placards will indicate a facility’s status of Pass, Conditional Pass or Closed at the time of the inspection.The new placards showing Pass or Conditional Pass will have numeric scores displayed that were received as part of the inspections. Placards showing a Closed status means an inspection revealed there was an imminent health hazard that required closure or that the permit was suspended due to non-compliance.

The database is online at http://decadeonline.com/main.phtml?agency=PAS.Permanent food facilities that will receive the new placards include restaurants, markets, bakeries, bars, school cafeterias, commissaries and retail food processing facilities. The businesses are required to publicly display the placards.Initial inspections by the Health Department resulting in scores of 85 to 100 will receive a Pass placard. Conditional Pass placards with scores of 75 to 84 means minimal code compliance was achieved and a follow-up inspection must be done. Conditional Pass scores of 74 and below mean minimal compliance also was achieved, but violations that were found require a mandatory Permit Suspension Hearing plus a follow-up inspection.The new placards and the public database are the most recent steps taken by the Health Department’s Environmental Health Division to improve its service to the public and increase awareness of its mission to ensure that food sold and served in the City of Pasadena is safe, wholesome, properly labeled, and produced under sanitary conditions.

Analysts Predict December Improvement for Existing-Home Sales

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Auction.com Existing Home Sales National Association of Realtors Tory Barringer began his journalism career in early 2011, working as a writer for the University of Texas at Arlington’s student newspaper before joining the DS News team in 2012. In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. A new forecast of existing-home sales for the month of December has projected activity rising but still finishing the year on a low note after a weaker than expected November.In its latest Nowcast projections, online real estate auction company Auction.com calls for pre-owned home sales to fall between seasonally adjusted annual rates of 4.79 and 5.18 million for December, with a targeted number of 4.98 million.The company’s forecast comes just one day after the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that existing-home sales in November were at an adjusted annual rate of 4.93 million, 6.1 percent down from October and well below Auction.com’s forecast of 5.25 million.Peter Muoio, chief economist for Auction.com, explained that outside influences were responsible for dragging home sales down past the lower scope of the company’s range.”This apparently anomaly required a closer look at possible outside factors that the [Nowcast] model wasn’t able to account for, such as a slowdown in purchases late in the month due to inclement weather, or the potential for November predictions to be skewed somewhat by the unexpectedly strong momentum coming out of October,” Muoio said.NAR cited a number of factors in November’s decline, including tightening inventory, diminishing investor activity, and rising home values pushing more and more properties out of homebuyers’ reach. Auction.com EVP Rick Sharga pointed to many of the same issues, also bringing up unexpectedly harsh weather conditions in the Midwest and Northeast.”In a month where consensus forecasts were all too optimistic, we are reminded that the housing market is recovering in fits and starts, and there remain significant headwinds,” Sharga said.As the housing market prepares for what 2015 might bring, Auction.com’s research department says strengthening first-time homebuyer numbers and increasing household formations will help normalize demand among non-investors.Meanwhile, continued strengthening in the labor market “suggests a firmer basis for demand heading into 2015, while lower mortgage rates and ongoing initiatives to improve mortgage accessibility could motivate more prospective buyers to enter the market,” the company said.If Auction.com’s forecast holds out, December sales will come in 2.2 percent above year-end 2013, marking the third straight month of annual improvement.
