Wagerers crossing the Delaware and Hudson for sports bets

first_imgATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – In the time it takes for a red light to turn green, Leonard Sciascia can get his sports bets made, turn around and head home.The 39-year-old man from New York City’s Staten Island runs his own business selling advice on which teams to bet on. But when he wants to take his own advice, he needs to leave home and cross the border into New Jersey — the only place near him where sports betting is legal.He drives across the Bayonne Bridge, stops at the first traffic light, logs in to his mobile betting account with playsugarhouse.com, make his bets, turns around and drives back home. The whole process takes 25 minutes, door to door. He considers the $6.50 toll part of the price of doing business.“I’m looking at (betting) lines all day,” Sciascia said. “If I see something I like, I jump in my car and go.”Sports betting is all over the New York area — on the airwaves, billboards, train station ads and publications. But in order to actually place a legal sports bet, gamblers have to be within New Jersey’s borders. It’s the only game in, or rather near, town right now for people in New York and Pennsylvania who want to bet for the Philadelphia Eagles, against the New York Giants, or a thousand other options.So they travel into New Jersey.Some drive across bridges, or through tunnels. Some take a PATH train under the Hudson River from New York City into Jersey City or Hoboken. And some even ride their bicycles just over halfway across the George Washington Bridge, hoping the geolocation technology on their smartphones will realize they’re in New Jersey, however briefly it might be.And it’s all perfectly legal, as long as they are physically in New Jersey. They can bet in person at most Atlantic City casinos, as well as at racetracks in East Rutherford and Oceanport, New Jersey. Or they can bet anywhere in the state on their mobile devices.FanDuel says 9 per cent of its sports book customers live in New York and 4 per cent live in Pennsylvania. DraftKings has a similar breakdown, and says about 10 per cent of its active customers visit New Jersey from other states to place bets.Maurice Shalam travels each Sunday morning from Brooklyn into Manhattan, where he catches a train into New Jersey.“I’ll get off the train and stand right in the station, a few steps from where I got off, take out my phone, do my bets right there, and go back home,” he said. The 30-minute round trip across the river and back, along with the $5.50 fare, is just part of the price of playing, he said.The 23-year-old uses the FanDuel and DraftKings mobile apps, depending on whose odds are better that day.“I’m a big ‘over’ guy,” he said, referring to a bet that the total number of points scored in by both teams in a football game will exceed a certain number. “I bet a lot on the Chiefs and the over this year, and I’m doing pretty well with that.”New Jersey won a U.S. Supreme Court case in May clearing the way for all 50 states to offer legal sports betting if they choose. So far, only five do: New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware, West Virginia and Mississippi, but others are considering it, and Pennsylvania is about to join soon.Since New Jersey began taking sports bets in mid-June, over $336 million has been wagered on spots in New Jersey.Laurence Berner lives in Philadelphia but works in a Trenton, New Jersey, rail yard for Amtrak. He places his bets during his morning rest break.Pennsylvania will begin allowing sports bets in a few weeks, but for now, New Jersey is the only option for the 31-year-old Berner, who makes $5 bets on eight-team parlay cards that pay off hundreds of dollars — providing he picks all eight games correctly. Two weeks ago he won $895 on one such bet.“It’ll definitely be easier when it comes to Pennsylvania, but for now, I’m at work in New Jersey, so I can do it there,” he said.For fellow Pennsylvania resident Anthony Tonzelli, sports betting is his job. The 44-year-old professional gambler from Bensalem crosses the Ben Franklin or Burlington-Bristol bridges over the Delaware River into New Jersey five days a week to make sports bets — lots of them. He has made $380,000 worth of sports bets since August, and is down about $3,000 since then.“This is just like going to a job for me,” he said. “Driving over the bridge and paying a toll really doesn’t matter when you’re putting $300 on a game,” said Tonzelli, who estimates he bets $5,000 a week on sports.Sometimes he’ll sit at a bar or restaurant and watch how his picks did; other times he’ll continue east to Atlantic City and play poker there. And when sports betting starts in Pennsylvania, Tonzelli still envisions himself crossing into New Jersey whenever the odds on a particular game are better.___Follow Wayne Parry at http://twitter.com/WayneParryAC___This story has been corrected to show the percentage of DraftKings users crossing into New Jersey is 10 per cent, not 20 per cent.last_img read more

MR warns Government not to betray Sri Lanka in Geneva

“Speaking of the new draft resolution that is now on the table, Minister Lashman Kiriella said in Parliament that Sri Lanka has been praised for the progress made and that there was nothing wrong in co-sponsoring that resolution. Indeed, there are some words of praise in the draft resolution, but that is for things like the treachery committed by this Government in readily cooperating with their foreign overlords and passing the new laws that we mentioned earlier. What is seen in a positive light by the foreign masters of this Government translates directly into a betrayal of Sri Lanka,” he said.He said the Government must communicate to the UN Human Rights Commissioner and members of the UNHRC that Sri Lanka will no longer co-sponsor resolutions against itself in the UNHRC, that Sri Lanka does not accept the allegations made in OHCHR Report No: 30/61 of 28 September 2015, that hybrid war crimes courts with foreign judges and prosecutors will never be set up in Sri Lanka and that Acts No: 14 of 2016, No: 5 of 2018 and No: 24 of 2018 which are highly detrimental to Sri Lanka’s sovereignty and the fundamental rights of its citizens, will be repealed and replaced with legislation more in keeping with Sri Lanka national interest. He claims Resolution 30/1 sought to betray the armed forces and wartime leaders to interested foreign parties and was co-sponsored by the Government at a time when they were expecting large inflows of foreign aid. Rajapaksa said that the contents of the UN Human Rights Commissioner’s latest report on Sri Lanka, in addition to similar reports in previous years, gives rise to the question whether Sri Lanka is any longer a sovereign nation. Rajapaksa says all members of the delegation representing the Government in Geneva should clearly understand that anything short of the above will effectively, be a betrayal of the people of Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette) Opposition leader Mahinda Rajapaksa today warned the Government not to betray Sri Lanka in Geneva.He noted that the Government has announced that they will co-sponsor yet another Resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). read more

UN Libya envoy meets with armed groups in support of political agreement

“The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) has repeatedly emphasized the importance of security and military officials from the conflicting sides engaging in dialogue,” said Bernardino León in a press release issued yesterday by the Mission. The discussion is part of the overall UNSMIL efforts on the security track of the Libyan dialogue, which is complementary to the ongoing political discussions and critical for the success of the process.In this context, UNSMIL is in contact with the various security and military actors on the ground in different areas of the country. Yesterday’s meeting was with armed groups from Misrata, the Western Mountain and other areas of western Libya. It will be followed by similar gatherings in other regions, including Zintan. Also, a meeting is being prepared in Cairo, Egypt, in the coming days with representatives of the Libyan Army and armed groups from regions in the east.“The cooperation of the armed groups is crucial for restoring peace and stability to Libya,” said Mr. León in Misrata, attended by representatives of the Municipal Council. He expressed the hope of convening the security track of the dialogue soon to draw a detailed plan for the implementation of the security arrangements and address security-related issues.Giving an overview of the draft political agreement to end Libya’s conflict, the UNSMIL chief underscored the importance of the support of the armed groups for successful implementation, including their withdrawal from cities and towns.In that regard, he added, recent local ceasefires and reconciliation agreements reached between localities in western Libya are welcome developments that “the Libyan actors should build on with a view to achieving a permanent and sustainable truce.”During the meetings, the participants expressed their views regarding the way forward, voiced their concerns and discussed how to overcome them. There was agreement among them to hold a wider meeting soon to discuss mechanisms to consolidate the ceasefires and strengthen it by applying a number of confidence-building measures, such as the exchange of prisoners. read more

Math camp draws participants from as far as Iran

Aryan Alavi Razavi Ravari’s love of numbers recently led him on a journey nearly 10,000 kilometres from home.The 14-year-old math whiz travelled with his parents from Tehran, Iran, to Brock University in mid-August to participate in a two-week math camp hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.Ravari learned about the camp through the online Caribou Mathematics Competition, an international contest held six times a year and run by Brock Professor Thomas Wolf. In the 2016-17 school year, the competition drew nearly 33,000 students inGrades 3 to 12 from 27 countries who wrote more than 120,000 tests. It aims to expose middle and high school students to news ways of thinking involving math, and is offered in English, French and Persian.Aryan Alavi Razavi Ravari travelled with his family from Tehran, Iran, to participate in Brock’s recent math camp, where he impressed his peers and instructors with his math skills.After competing in the contest’s most recent edition, Ravari came across information about the Brock camp, also run by Wolf, and decided to make the trip to Canada.“I’m interested in math very much,” he said during his two-week visit on campus, which came to an end Aug. 25. He described the camp as “good and useful,” adding he came away with new knowledge he plans to use moving forward.While it was his first time at Brock, Ravari and his family have travelled to Canada on multiple occasions.“It’s a huge and beautiful University,” he said.Before his departure, Ravari dominated the first week’s Math Camp Olympiad with a perfect score, followed by a tie for first place in the second week’s competition.Currently in its fourth year, the camp brings together students who share a common interest, exposing them to higher level mathematics while building problem-solving skills that are applicable to any field of study.This year’s camp included a group of 21 students, who ranged in age from 10 to 15 years old. They participated in a number of mini math courses, which were adapted to ensure suitable depth and difficulty based on age and ability.Campers had the option of attending either a one-week or two-week camp, during which they stayed in Brock’s Village Residence to provide an early glimpse into university life.A variety of social and physical activities were also planned, including archery, swimming, games nights, a rope and rock climbing course, as well as a scavenger hunt that had campers solving math puzzles for clues to their next location. read more

Its what we do Husband of Coast Guard volunteer back on the

first_img Jan 13th 2017, 10:50 PM ‘It’s what we do’ – Husband of Coast Guard volunteer back on the water after her death Speaking on tonight’s Late Late Show, Bernard Lucas paid tribute to his wife and his community. http://jrnl.ie/3186248 By Paul Hosford 16,353 Views THE HUSBAND OF the Coast Guard volunteer who died at sea last year tonight spoke of his loss.Last September Caitriona Lucas became the first ever Irish Coast Guard volunteer to die on active service after the boat she was travelling in capsized during a search for a missing person.Speaking on tonight’s Late Late Show, Bernard Lucas paid tribute to his wife and his community, saying that this Christmas has been difficult.“Very difficult ould Christmas, but we have a great core group of friends and neighbours who have all been great. And the general public, we get lots of letter from around the country that are very supportive.”Bernard described the two as “childhood sweethearts”, telling how they had met when Caitriona was 17 at a disco. From there, they were “more or less together ever since”.He said their common interests in outdoor activities led them to volunteer in the Coast Guard, calling his wife a “marvellous person”.“She was full of life, loved helping each others.”Rescue operationHe said that the pair had been at home on the day in question when Caitriona went to join a search for a missing person.“I was at home on the farm and carrying my pager when we got a page about an upturned boat in Kilkee. I went to the station in Doolin as normal. I had no idea Caitriona was on the boat because she was due to just be a shore searcher.I had no idea of the enormity of what unfolded.He added that the closer the boat got to Kilkee, they were directed to the pier in the town.“We were tying the boat up and I saw gardaí coming down and they asked to speak to me. We went to where Caitriona was taken from the water and I flew with her to Limerick.”Despite just four months passing, Bernard has continued volunteering with the Coast Guard.“We have a callout ongoing tonight. I was out this morning, I’ll be out again tomorrow. I went back a week, maybe two weeks after the accident.It’s what we did. It’s what we do. It’s what Caitriona did and loved. There’s a comfort in it.The show carried a large segment paying tribute to the volunteers of the Coast Guard and RNLI.Read: ‘She was more than my wife, she was my best friend’: Husband pays tribute to volunteer wife Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 14 Comments Image: Doolin Coast Guard via Facebook Share Tweet Email Image: Doolin Coast Guard via Facebook Friday 13 Jan 2017, 10:50 PM Short URLlast_img read more

Man who kicked his former partner in the face during attack jailed

first_img Short URL Image: Rollingnews.ie Share2 Tweet Email1 Apr 12th 2019, 2:55 PM https://jrnl.ie/4589259 14 Comments 14,796 Views A MAN WHO kicked his former partner in the face during an attack and told her that “tonight was her execution” has been jailed for five years.Barry O’Donoghue (38) of Mourne Road, Drimnagh, Dublin, was convicted by a jury at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court of assault causing harm and threat to kill or cause serious harm at his address between 20 and 21 October 2016.Judge Elma Sheahan sentenced O’Donoghue to five and a half years imprisonment for the threat to kill and three years imprisonment for the assault. She said both sentences will run concurrently with each other.Judge Sheahan suspended the final six months of the sentence for a period of 12 months post-release, on condition that he keep the peace and be of good behaviour for that period, follow all directions of the Probation Service and engage in anger management.She also ordered that the accused make no contact with the injured party, save through solicitors.Garda Keith O’Brien told Ronan Prendergast BL, prosecuting, that on the date in question a confrontation began between O’Donoghue and his former partner in his house.Garda O’Brien said that when the woman tried to open the front door she was knocked to the ground by O’Donoghue and pulled back inside the house. He started to punch her at the bottom of the stairs and shouted that “she was only ever evil to him”.O’Donoghue raised his right foot and kicked her in the face with full force. He brought her into the kitchen and continued to hit her there.Garda O’Brien said O’Donoghue told her he had been planning the attack and that she was going to die. He said that “tonight was her execution” and asked if she would like to be shot.He was holding a bread knife in his hand while making the threats, the court heard. The woman left the house while he was asleep and contacted gardaí.O’Donoghue has no previous convictions and has been in custody since his conviction by a jury on 7 February last. He is originally from Co Carlow.‘I don’t buy it’In her victim impact statement, which she read out in court, the woman said she had to have surgery to repair her eye and that she had nerve damage to the left side of her face.She said she did not know how she made it out of that night alive. She said she had a recurring nightmare in which she saw her gravestone with the date 20 October, which then disappears and she hears O’Donoghue’s voice telling her he would bury her where no one would find her.The woman said she feared he would seek revenge due to her reporting what he did to her. After reading a letter of apology written by O’Donoghue, she said: “I don’t buy it”.Breffni Gordon BL, defending, said his client came from an “impeccable background”. He said the court could infer this would be O’Donoghue’s “last offence” due to his age and his lack of any previous convictions.Judge Sheahan said the court did not accept that the accused accepted responsibility for his actions as he appeared to maintain his version of events that he injured the woman recklessly.She said that the failure for him to acknowledge his actual behaviour did not show remorse or insight.

Spending cuts proposed for 2009

first_imgIn an effort to prove that Greece can cut public spending to deal with the economic crisis, Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis announced a 12 point program to cut government spending last week.The plan is a response to the European Union call last week for the Greek Government to decrease its budget deficits and the emergency meeting held yesterday in Brussels of the leaders of all EU member countries to discuss the Union’s response to the global financial crisisKaramanlis stressed the need to eliminate wasteful public sector spending so that the Greek economy might weather the global economic crisis.Karamanlis said that the global financial crisis was putting immense pressure on growth, employment and public finances.He emphasized that this required the Greek government to increase spending to encourage economic growth and cater to the welfare needs of those impacted on most severely whilst also restricting overall spending to ensure financial stability in Greece. The 12 point plan announced by Karamanlis made it clear that spending in some areas such as education and health would not be touched. Among the measures unveiled by the prime minister were a 10 percent cut in the budget of most ministries, an identical reduction in spending on contract workers and a ban on the hiring of any more permanent or temporary staff in the public sector.Mirroring moves in other countries to limit the salaries of senior executives and managers,  Karamanlis also announced that officials in the public sector would not be able to earn more than 6,000 euros per month.The plan also envisages a major rationalisation in  the number of government agencies within the next six months, major changes to the national pharmaceuticals benefit scheme in Greece and further measures to rein in tax evasion.Sources said that apart from persuading European leaders that Greece is committed to reducing its burgeoning deficit at the leaders meeting in  Brussels, Karamanlis will be aiming to ensure that the European Commission does not impose any more measures on the country’s economy and that the government is given as much time as possible to come out of the supervision under which Brussels has placed it.

Santos defends Ronaldo after UEFA snub

first_imgPortugal national team head coach Fernando Santos has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo should have won the UEFA Men’s player of the year award ahead of Luka Modric.The new Juventus superstar was a crucial figure for Real Madrid, scoring 15 goals as Los Blancos won their third consecutive UEFA Champions League title in May.Modric won the most votes from coaches and journalists as Ronaldo after impressive performances at the World Cup with Croatia.Asked about the decision to overlook Portugal captain Ronaldo, Santos told reporters, as quoted by SportsKeeda: “The vote for the best of FIFA is not mine. If it was mine, Ronaldo was the champion.“Ronaldo is the champion for me. And in second place, I’d put Modric. But the rest of votes come from the public, journalists, other coaches, there are many people, so the decision will be announced at the right date.”Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“There’s a previous list, as I’ve already said, Modric is a fantastic player, that’s why I’ve put him in second. But in this previous election, I think Cristiano should’ve been the winner for all he did at that period of time and especially at the Champions League.”Santos will be without Ronaldo who is yet to open his Juventus goals scoring account for Portugal’s Nations League match against Italy on September 10.“Portugal is a national squad with Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s European champion, the best player in the world. So, Cristiano Ronaldo, such as Joao Moutinho and all the others, Andre Gomes etc, I won’t name them all, they are all very important in this team,” Santos added.“They achieved an extraordinary triumph for Portugal, they made history. A group of players that have played here and only lost twice, so there’s no with or without Ronaldo. And Ronaldo will be in conditions to play with us for a long time.”last_img read more

Researchers build switchable magnetic logic gate

first_img Modern computers are based on transistors – electronic based circuits that use a small amount of electrical charge to create and hold one of two states – “on” or “off.” This approach has allowed for the development of a wide variety of computing devices, but it also has its limits. The more logic gates a circuit has, the more electricity it requires, which means more heat buildup. It also means that circuits must be hard-wired, which limits the types of functions to which they can be put. Because of that, computers wind up having several types of dedicated circuit boards in them to carry out different applications, e.g. video, audio, CPU, etc. In this new research, the team from Korea has built a circuit that is based on switchable magnetism, and as a result, suffers from neither limitation.To create the circuit, the researchers built a logic gate controlled by magnetism. In practice, it’s a two layer bridge made out of the semiconducting material indium antimonide. The bottom layer has positively charged holes, while the top has mostly negatively charged electrons. Sending a magnetic field across the bridge in one direction causes the electrons to pass over the bridge and on through the circuit, sending it in the other direction causes the electrons to stop when they bump into the lower layer. The result is a logic gate that allows or disallows current to pass through – one state can be considered “on,” the other “off” representing “1” or “0.” And because the state of the logic gate is controlled by magnetism, it can be held in place in the absence of electricity. That means less heat and more importantly, an ability to program circuitry like software. A computer based on such logic gates would only need one circuit board – it could be reconfigured on the fly to carry out whatever purpose is needed, whenever that need comes about.There are still some serious issues to be addressed, of course, before such circuits could be used in real applications however, such as how to integrate them with silicon based technology – and perhaps more importantly how to control thousands or even millions of tiny magnets in a practical way in a computing device. More information: Magnetic-field-controlled reconfigurable semiconductor logic, Nature (2013) doi:10.1038/nature11817AbstractLogic devices based on magnetism show promise for increasing computational efficiency while decreasing consumed power. They offer zero quiescent power and yet combine novel functions such as programmable logic operation and non-volatile built-in memory. However, practical efforts to adapt a magnetic device to logic suffer from a low signal-to-noise ratio and other performance attributes that are not adequate for logic gates. Rather than exploiting magnetoresistive effects that result from spin-dependent transport of carriers, we have approached the development of a magnetic logic device in a different way: we use the phenomenon of large magnetoresistance found in non-magnetic semiconductors in high electric fields. Here we report a device showing a strong diode characteristic that is highly sensitive to both the sign and the magnitude of an external magnetic field, offering a reversible change between two different characteristic states by the application of a magnetic field. This feature results from magnetic control of carrier generation8 and recombination in an InSb p–n bilayer channel9. Simple circuits combining such elementary devices are fabricated and tested, and Boolean logic functions including AND, OR, NAND and NOR are performed. They are programmed dynamically by external electric or magnetic signals, demonstrating magnetic-field-controlled semiconductor reconfigurable logic at room temperature. This magnetic technology permits a new kind of spintronic device, characterized as a current switch rather than a voltage switch, and provides a simple and compact platform for non-volatile reconfigurable logic devices.
