SBF Petroleum/CGI Jaguars One Day League| Winners seeking added points, as losers look for points

first_imgROUND three of the ongoing Jaguars One Day League continues today across the country as winning teams seek added momentum while the unfortunate ones hunt a change of fortune as action intensifies.Essequibo will venture out of area, as they seek to continue their winning ways against West Berbice, one of the better teams in the competition, up at Bush Lot, West Coast, Berbice.Having won two in two, the defending champions Essequibo will want to carry on especially with the forms of Kemol Savory, Quintin Sampson, Ricardo Adams, Ronsford Beaton and a few others who have been their match-winners.Batsman Kevon Sinclair, along with Guyana Jaguars bowlers Gudakesh Motie and Keon Joseph, is in form and will play a huge role in today’s encounter.The Berbicians will also fancy themselves playing at home as this is Essequibo’s first match out of area since the tourney bowled off.A woeful Georgetown were hammered in back-to-back games by Essequibo then by West Demerara. Skipper Leon Johnson has been making starts but his star-studded side have misfired on two occasions, making today’s encounter against Lower Corentyne at Bourda, a must-win match for the veteran side.Lower Corentyne will be more confident, having won by 7 wickets in round two and could take their momentum into the third round and against a hapless Demerara. Lower Corentyne might have their tails up and with Kelvin Umroa, Seon Hetmyer and Kevlon Anderson in-form, they could be in for a match against the Demerara outfit.At their home turf on the Enmore ground, East Coast, another out-of-sorts team, will be seeking their first win when they oppose the uncanny Upper Corentyne. The Berbice franchise almost bowled out Essequibo in round two thanks to their dangerous trio of bowlers in Gaurav Ramesh, Sylus Tyndall and Dimitri Cameron who all played huge roles.Meanwhile, East Bank who are desperately in need of a morale-boosting win against the Tagenarine Chanderpaul-led side West Demerara, will have their tussle at the Tuschen ground as both sides could seek to outdo the other as the tournament progresses.Weather permitting, matches will bowl off at 09:30hrs.

‘Get real’ on in-play restrictions and surveillance urges DSWV

first_img StumbleUpon MoneyMatrix boosts wire transfer options by integrating Klarna’s Sofort August 24, 2020 Share Share Related Articles Submit Martin Lycka – Regulatory high temperatures cancel industry’s ‘silly season’ August 11, 2020 DSWV, the ‘German Sports Betting Trade Association‘, has welcomed the new consensus reached for the online gambling components of the ‘Fourth Interstate Treaty on Gambling’, which would allow for federal provisions on online casino and poker.This week, the Bundesrat press agency confirmed that all 16 Länder (states) had agreed ‘in principle’ to allow for concessions on online casino, poker and slots licensing on the proviso that legislation protects minors and vulnerable consumers.DSWV governance has welcomed the reforms, underlining that the ‘prohibition of online games has proven ineffective in a digital age’.Despite progress on online gambling, the DSWV maintains its stance that Germany’s planned federal framework will remain ineffective for sports wagering, particularly by limiting monthly player deposit limits to €1000 and restricting inventory on in-play markets.DSWV President Mathias Dahms described the Treaty’s unappealing sports framework as the German federal market’s biggest sticking point.“It is particularly problematic for us is the very tight criteria of live bets held exclusively on the final result or on the next goal in sports with a small number of goals, such as football,” said Dahms.Of further concern, Dahms underlines that an unclear Bundesrat mandate on market in-play restrictions could see popular markets such as tennis, handball and basketball (all high points scoring sports) become obsolete to the consumer.With wagering in-play functions becoming the standard-norm for sports betting customers, Dahms that current frameworks will only lead to ‘disappointed consumers turning to the black market’.In addition, the DSWV maintains its stance that a monthly deposit limit of €1,000 per customer ‘should not be regarded as consumer protection’, instead advising Länder to consult with industry leadership on implementing comprehensive safeguards.Further to securing consensus on online gambling provisions, this week Länder states agreed that German gambling would be monitored by a ‘super surveillance authority’, which would be charged with registering customer files on all gambling consumers.Whilst the DSWV supports the foundation of a ‘supervisory authority’, the trade body underlines that the unit will have to be ‘flexible to market developments’. Dahms also questioned the need and resources required to maintain ‘activity files’ on German consumers.“It will be a gigantic technical effort to maintain all central ‘activity files’ recording consumers parallel use of various gambling product and engagement with offers across the Internet,” he added. “The associated waiting time of 5 minutes when switching from one offer to another completely ignores the reality of life for consumers in the digital age.” Mateusz Juroszek – Non-stop STS will expand amid industry disruptions August 12, 2020last_img read more

Moves afoot to open plantain chip factory in Leguan

first_imgThe plan to open a plantain chip factory in Leguan was revitalisedRegion Three Vice Chairman Sheik Ayube– Business Ministry opens bidsGovernment has revitalised plans by the previous Administration to open a plantain chip factory in Leguan, Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara).The Business Ministry, in a local newspaper advertisement, is inviting interested investors to submit Expressions of Interest along with their business proposal for this undertaking.According to the Government ad, investors should have the capacity to take possession of the property immediately after signing the contract.The size of the property is 8625 square feet and includes machines such as slicing processors, and blanching, and dewatering, frying, de-oiling, seasoning and packaging equipment.The move to establish a plantain chip factory, in order to push the local manufacturing sector, was touted by former President Donald Ramotar in the lead-up to the 2015 General and Regional Elections.This project falls under the previous Administration’s Rural Enterprise Development programme which commenced back in 2014.These projects initially comprised the construction of two call centres – one in Tuschen in Region Three and one in Enmore in Region Four, and two chip factories, one in Leguan and one in the neighbouring island of Wakenaam.When the new Administration assumed office, this much-anticipated initiative was shelved.Just earlier this year, residents were calling on the Government to move ahead with the plan to open the factory to provide jobs for the people on the island.Region Three Vice Chairman Sheik Ayube had noted with concern the apparent neglect of the project.Shortly after their demands, the National Budget 2016 was presented in the National Assembly and Business Minister Dominic Gaskin indicated that the project was back on the cards.He explained that the entire Rural Enterprise Development initiative was put on hold to facilitate a review.Gaskin announced that as a result of the review, Government decided on some modifications and will complete three of the four projects that were begun under the initiative.He noted that the building earmarked in Leguan for the factory was constructed with no consideration for how either “a person or a plantain” could get from the main roadway into the factory when it became operational.Nonetheless, he said this would be addressed by Government.With regard to the development of a plantain chip factory in Wakenaam, the Business Minister said Government was unable to proceed with that aspect of the plan because the area in question was prone to flooding and erosion, and therefore posed a risk to the entire operation.Meanwhile, the Business Ministry is also moving apace to open the call centre in Enmore.An invitation for bids is being advertised for the completion of phase two for the call centre, which would include building works and the construction of external works along with facility.last_img read more
