The €9.87bn total means gambling accounts for 0.8% of Spain’s GDP, down slightly from 0.9% in 2017.The private sector makes up 56.6% of the total at €5.9bn, which is up slightly on the 55% it accounted for in 2017. Public-owned groups ONCE and SELAE account for the rest.Online gaming accounts for just 7.3% of total turnover at €724.4m. In the previous year it was worth 6% of the total.In 2018, the gambling sector contributed €1.34bn in taxes and employed 85,047 people, of which 47,178 were in the private sector.The Cejuego report also highlights that alongside Norway, Spain leads the rankings for European countries with the lowest number of problem gamblers, as indicated by the latest study on behavioural addictions of the Spanish Observatory of Drugs and Addictions.“The data is good but we want to keep improving,” said the director general of Cejuego, Alejandro Landaluce.According to the study, the gaming sector invested €412m in advertising during 2018 at a time when critics of the industry were calling for tighter regulations.Landaluce said: “There is a commitment from the private sector to make proper regulation of advertising spend by limiting quantity, messages and schedules, specific sections during sporting events, to reduce overall impacts on sporting events and not to announce bonuses or fees and explanatory only and / or informational ads. However, this regulation must equally affect both the private sector and SELAE and ONCE.”Under plans revealed in last October’s Budget, the Government outlined plans to introduce restrictions similar to those placed on tobacco. In 2005, Spain introduced regulations that prohibit the sponsorship of tobacco products, as well as all kinds of advertising and promotion in the media, with a handful of exceptions.Earlier this year, senior politician Francisco Fernández Marugán, Spain’s citizens’ rights ombudsman, recommended that the government explore the total prohibition of advertising related to gambling and betting in the media, radio, television and internet.

With the constant referrals upstairs, the flow of the game is completely lost and fans are left twiddling their thumbs as officials debate the intricacies of the game. Once a decision is made, the referee should have to stick with it. If it’s wrong, so be it. If he’s in any doubt as to what he’s seen, then that’s the time to go upstairs.Barnes handled the TMO well on Sunday, talking to the official while the game was going to see if he needed to take action. When he didn’t need to, he let the game continue.It’s good to get decisions right, but when it comes at the cost of the quality of the match something’s got to change.Always be yourself, unless you can be Mamuka Gorgodze. Always be Mamuka GorgodzeGeorgia’s number 8 and captain Mamuka Gorgodze stands beside a scrum against TongaHe’s a beast and we knew that well before this tournament, but Mamuka Gorgodze put in the kind of performance against Tonga that showed everyone just how destructive he can be.Standing at 6ft 5in, the back rower is a formidable opponent at the best of times, but when he’s captaining his country in a game they’re expected to lose he puts in some of his best performances.Unfortunately, more often than not in the big games, his performances go under the radar as Georgia fall to defeat, but Tonga will be glad to see the back of ‘Gorgodzilla’ after his dominant display at Kingsholm.A bundling try under the posts was just one of his highlights, but his defence was what set him apart. Gorgodze put in an incredible 27 tackles on the huge Tongans – a huge reason why Georgia upset their opponents.His team face Argentina on Friday and after this performance the Pumas will undoubtedly be taking the challenge a little more seriously.USA could pose a threat if they become more disciplinedChris Wyles (USA) against Samoa at the Rugby World CupOn paper the USA team is pretty strong. They’ve got players with Aviva Premiership experience in Chris Wyles (Saracens), Samu Manoa (formerly Northampton), Eric Fry (Newcastle), as well as a blistering winger in Takudzwa Ngwenya.On the field, however, a lack of discipline proved costly against Samoa, giving away 14 penalties – double that given away by the Pacific Islanders. Their opponents kicked five of those penalties through the posts, which was ultimately what cost them the game.It wasn’t just the penalties where the Eagles lacked discipline, but also in defence, where the team missed 29 tackles over the course of the 80 minutes.

TAGS: HighlightJapan By Stuart ClarkeUnderdogs can prosperJapan celebrate their win over South AfricaThere’s usually a certain inevitability when it comes to Rugby World Cup matches. The underdogs may sometimes run the favourites close, but in the end the big dogs always win.But Japan upset the formula and the form guide to record the biggest upset in World Cup history, possibly in the history of all rugby. Their win over South Africa was no fluke, though, but carefully masterminded and perfectly executed.Even when the Brave Blossoms were still in contention with 15 minutes to play there was always the sense – as there always is when a supposedly weaker team plays a supposedly stronger team – that they’d tire and fade towards the end.It didn’t happen, though, and the final minutes of the game are probably the best you’ll see in this World Cup. We may as well end it now.Wayne Barnes isn’t afraid to annoy the KiwisWayne Barnes shows Richie McCaw (#7) the yellow cardWayne Barnes hasn’t been particularly popular in New Zealand for the last eight years, since refereeing the World Cup quarter-final that the All Blacks lost to France in Cardiff.Fast forward to 2015 and the Englishman would have had to go into hiding had the Kiwis lost to Argentina on Sunday.As always, the 36-year-old was spot on with the vast majority of his decisions, but he must have flashed back to the abuse he received eight years ago when he was left with no choice but to sin bin Richie McCaw for a trip. The man is pretty much the biggest name in the competition and the face of a nation, but Barnesy isn’t one to be let his decisions be influenced by a reputation.Barnes is made of tough stuff, though, as shown when he carded Conrad Smith just eight minutes later.The All Blacks won, though, and Barnes came out of the match with almost the highest accolade – no-one was talking about his performance, which means he must have had a good game.There was a lot of time wasted talking to the TMOJaco Peyper watches a replay in the England v Fiji gameFans at the opening game between England and Fiji on Friday got to see their heros on the Twickenham pitch for at least 11 minutes longer than normal in the first half. Unfortunately all they were doing was standing around.Referee Jaco Peyper and TMO Shaun Veldsman were savaged on social media for the way they handled the game, with the on-field official going upstairs to review almost every play.No-one would have begrudged Niko Matawala the try that Peyper and Veldsman eventually ruled out, but when it did go upstairs it was very clear that the scrum-half had bobbled the ball and therefore the time spent looking at replays was unnecessary.Then Craig Joubert received criticism on Saturday night for awarding France’s Noa Nakaitaci a try and just as Frederik Michalak was about to take the conversion he was interrupted by the need to look at replays. There was plenty of action in the first three games of the Rugby World Cup, but here is a selection of the things we were talking about this weekend
El brutal asesinato de nueve afroamericanas/os en la histórica Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana Emanuel en Charleston-Carolina del Sur en junio del año pasado por un racista que blandió símbolos confederados, provocó un movimiento nacional para retirar las banderas y estatuas confederadas y quitar los nombres de los propietarios de esclavos de lugares y edificios.Uno de estos ricos propietarios de esclavas/os fue John C. Calhoun, un graduado de Yale en 1804, a quien la Universidad de Yale honra al haberle dado su nombre al Colegio Calhoun. Como consecuencia de la balacera en Charleston, estudiantes de Yale comenzaron una petición para eliminar el nombre de Calhoun y consiguieron más de 1.500 firmas. La petición dice: “Al igual que el despliegue oficial de la bandera de la Confederación en Carolina del Sur, el Colegio Calhoun representa una indiferencia a siglos de dolor y sufrimiento de la población negra”.Para quien no sabe cuán podrido era Calhoun, a principios de 1800, fue la voz nacional más viciosa promoviendo la esclavocracia, incluso llamando a la esclavitud un “bien positivo”. Y él era poderoso además de rico; fue representante y senador de Carolina del Sur, secretario de estado y vicepresidente bajo John Quincy Adams y también Andrew Jackson. Una de sus principales “contribuciones” fue ser el autor de la doctrina que permitía a los estados esclavistas hacer caso omiso de cualquier ley federal que inhibiera la esclavitud.En cara del Underground Railroad (Corredor Oculto de esclavas/os), dirigido por héroes como Harriet Tubman, Calhoun creó la Ley de Esclavos Fugitivos de 1850. Esta ley permitía a los dueños de esclavos localizar y volver a esclavizar a quienes se habían escapado al Norte.Desafiando a sus estudiantes, el presidente de Yale Peter Salovey, anunció el 27 de abril que la escuela se negaba a remover el nombre del supremacista blanco del colegio residencial.En un momento en que incluso la Legislatura de Carolina del Sur está de acuerdo en retirar la bandera de la Confederación de la Cámara Legislativa, ¿por qué una universidad de Nueva Inglaterra de la ‘Ivy League’ [N de T: colegios considerados los mejores del país] se niega a borrar el nombre de este monstruo racista? La única razón lógica es que conceder esta parte del pasado de Yale abre la puerta a un nuevo examen de la totalidad del enredo histórico de la Universidad de Yale y su enriquecimiento con la esclavitud.La Universidad de Yale lleva el nombre de Elihu Yale, un funcionario de la Compañía de las Indias Orientales a finales de 1600, que hizo una fortuna con el comercio de esclavos del Océano Índico. El decano Holloway de la universidad de Yale, señaló el año pasado que “En su fundación y durante sus primeros 150 años o más, sí, Yale, como tantas otras instituciones de la época, fueron cómplices en el saqueo debido a que sus finanzas estaban entrelazadas con la economía global de esclavos”. (yaledailynews.com 30 de marzo de 2015)El trabajo no remunerado de millones de esclavas/os africanos durante siglos fue central para la acumulación de capital de muchos actuales bancos, compañías de seguros, empresas e instituciones elitistas como la Universidad de Yale. Esta acumulación, con valor actual de billones de dólares, se intensificó sobre todo después de la invención de la desmotadora de algodón por otro graduado de Yale, Eli Whitney. Continuó a través del período de la aparcería, el motor económico de Jim Crow, forzado por el brutal régimen de terror del Klan.Este legado racista continúa de mil maneras hoy, con las políticas de los gobiernos y las empresas por igual sobre vivienda, educación, prisiones, e incluso de aguas limpias, diseñadas para saquear la riqueza producida por la comunidad afroamericana.Durante años ha habido un creciente movimiento de reparaciones exigiendo un retorno de esta riqueza a las comunidades afroamericanas donde estaban y de donde se extrajeron con tanta crueldad. La administración de la Universidad de Yale y todos sus patrocinadores de Wall Street quieren evitar cualquier cosa que podría abrir la puerta a la justa reparación de la riqueza.Workers World – Mundo Obrero apoya la justa demanda de las/os estudiantes de Yale para cambiar el nombre de su colegio. Pero eso es sólo el comienzo. La campaña electoral 2016 del Partido WW-Mundo Obrero incluye la demanda de ¡reparaciones ahora! Esa deuda debe ser pagada por las instituciones ricas como la Universidad de Yale y todos sus aliados de Wall Street.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Howard County farmer and 2nd VP of Indiana Farm Bureau said she found she had a lot in common with the farmers she met during her week in China, “They have the same interests for their people as we do for ours.” She added the Chinese leaders were trying to establish their place in the world economy while safeguarding and providing for their farm families.

Ethanol industry supporters say the gap year waivers are intended to circumvent a Tenth Circuit Court’s decision against three granted waivers.Meanwhile, the groups denounced CVR Refining and HollyFrontier Corporation’s last-minute request, filed on September 4, for the U.S. Supreme Court to review the Tenth Circuit Court’s ruling.NCGA, RFA, NFU and ACE were the four petitioners in the successful Tenth Circuit Court case.
