Norwich City terminates BK8 sponsorship after three days

first_imgSponsorship Betting sponsorship in football has received significant opposition in the UK, with the Big Step campaign – supported by League Two team Forest Green Rovers – looking to ban all gambling promotion in football. Premier League football club Norwich City has announced the mutual termination of its commercial partnership with betting operator BK8 Sports – three days after announcing the deal. The club say they anticipated unfavourable reactions to partnering with a betting company, but have subsequently apologised for an ‘error in judgement’. The initial deal was announced on 7 June, with BK8 set to become the team’s shirt sponsor for the 2021/22 season, after the club ended its previous agreement with Dafabet. 10th June 2021 | By Nosa Omoigui “We want to continue to embed a highly inclusive culture across the club, together with an accessible and welcoming environment free of demeaning and discriminatory behaviours.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newslettercenter_img “On this occasion, we made an error of judgement. Our standards were not at the levels we demand of our football club. We can now only apologise to our supporters and former players, Grant Holt and Darren Eadie, who were across the BK8 promotional launch campaign, for any offence caused. However after negative reactions from fans and other partners, Norwich and BK8 came to a mutual termination agreement. Norwich’s chief operating officer Ben Kensell said: “As a self-financed club there is always a fine balance between generating the revenue levels required to help maintain that model, whilst working within our visions and values.

Is prison clemency the answer?

first_imgOn July 16, President Barack Obama made a visit to a federal prison in Reno, Okla., to bring attention in his own way to the criminality of the U.S. criminal justice system and its biased laws, especially toward people convicted of nonviolent drug offenses. It is the first time that a U.S. president has ever visited a federal correctional facility. Obama stated that as a youth who smoked marijuana and tried cocaine, he could have easily found himself in the same situation as hundreds of thousands of people like the six prisoners he spoke to in the prison. HBO is scheduled to air that interview as part of a Vice documentary sometime in the fall.Just three days before his visit, on July 13, Obama commuted the sentences of 46 people convicted of nonviolent offenses, mostly associated with either drug use or petty drug sales. On the White House Facebook page was a statement that those granted clemency had sentences ranging from 20 years to life. There are debates in Congress on sentencing “reform” for nonviolent offenders. While this is truly a national and even international scandal of epic proportions, it is just the tip of the iceberg, especially when it comes to targeting people of color and the poor.It is important to raise first and foremost that the U.S. has the world’s largest prison population at 2.2 million people, marking a 500 percent increase over the last 30 years. According to the Sentencing Project, half of all federal prisoners were convicted of drug charges, with a 13 percent increase of prisoners in state prisons since 1980. The majority of these prisoners, federal and state, had no prior criminal record. These numbers don’t even include the thousands of immigrants, including women and youth, held in detention centers.To expose the racist institutionalized sentencing policy for these so-called crimes, two-thirds of the prison population are people of color, with one out of 10 Black men in their thirties in prison on any given day. The “war on drugs,” which intensified under the Reagan administration in the 1980s, has evolved into a genocidal war on people of color, especially in the African-American community. Coupled with daily police and vigilante killings of Black men and women, including trans people, and fueled by an unprecedented economic crisis of no jobs and low-wage jobs, this genocidal war is becoming more and more devastating.To break this down even further, an April 20 Upshot analysis pointed out that there are 1.5 million missing Black men in the U.S.: missing meaning they have suffered either early deaths or mass incarceration. The study goes on to say that more than one out of every six Black men who today should be between 25 and 54 years old has disappeared from daily life.Any discussion that is taking place in Congress or the White House is tantamount to putting a Band-Aid on a cancer when it comes to any kind of prison reform. Providing clemency for a handful of victims is a good start, but it’s far from the solution.The truth of the matter is that the entire U.S. prison system cannot be reformed, but has to be uprooted from the bottom up. Federal and private funds in the billions of dollars, which are invested in prisons for profits, should be put into a massive jobs program, including job training, that will pay a living wage and provide benefits.This is the only solution that will begin the process of decriminalizing young workers of color. And this solution can only come about with a united anti-capitalist struggle of all the workers and the oppressed.Photo: Aides to U.S. President Barack Obama (not seen) enter the El Reno Federal Correctional Institution after Obama in El Reno, Oklahoma July 16.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sponsored by FMC, the Stand Up and Be Heard Anthem Singing Contest will award a total of $25,000 in mid September to a member of a national agriculture related student organization.“Any student aged 13 to 21who is a member of FFA, 4-H, student NAMA or any agricultural youth organization is eligible to participate,” says Paul Redhage, FMC Strategic Communications Manager. “They can take their iPhones or digital video cameras and films themselves and upload that. It’s something easy to do, just walk over in the corner and do it, do it at home or do out in the field. Last year one of our final four contestants was out walking among her cattle herd while she was singing, so it was fun.”Redhage told HAT they’ll also be at many FFA state conventions to help record students. The uploads can begin on March first through June 15th, and then a combination of online voting and musician and student panel judging will determine the final four who will be brought to Nashville for professional recordings. Details will be at the contest website.The Anthem contest served the dual role of investing in farming’s future and promoting their brand new Anthem and Anthem ATZ herbicides for corn. Bob Hooten is FMC Agricultural Products North America technical support manager.“It gives you the same performance of Authority products on waterhemp and Palmer amaranth in corn. You’re going to get the longest residual on grass that anyone has ever gotten, plus you have all that extra pigweed activity with Palmer and the waterhemp. If you have an issue and you like atrazine we have Anthem ATZ which is good on cockleburs and ragweed, and as one retailer told me, you have the finest formulation of atrazine that I’ve ever seen. He said do not downplay that because it mixes well and cleans out well. He said we finally brought them an atrazine that’s usable.”Anthem offers flexible application windows from 30 days before planting all the way to early post-planting. Both Anthem and Anthem ATZ received Environmental Protection Agency registration in the 4th quarter of 2012.Hear more from both Redhage and Hooten in the full HAT interview:Paul Redhage and Bob Hooten SHARE Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Anthem Singing Contest gets ready to Kickoff 2nd Seasonlast_img read more

And we reject the kind of blackmail that endangers a journalist whose sole aim was to cover what life is like for the Afghan population.”A petition in French, English, Spanish, Italian, Farsi and Arabic can be downloaded from the Reporters Without Borders website (www.rsf.org).Reporters Without Borders has not forgotten the terrible execution-style murder of Italian freelance journalist Enzo Baldoni in Iraq in August 2004. There was no significant campaign for his release following his abduction. If there had been one, it might have saved his life.Torsello’s abductors yesterday said they would release him if an Afghan convert to Christianity who sought asylum in Italy were returned to Afghanistan within four days (by the evening of 21 October). The identity of his kidnappers is still unknown.Torsello was kidnapped by five gunmen as he was travelling by bus from Lashkar Gah to Kandahar in southern Afghanistan on 12 October. Since then, he has been in telephone contact several times with personnel at a hospital in Lashkar Gah run by the Italian NGO Emergency.A freelance journalist who has visited many parts of the world over the past ten years, Torsello had been travelling within Afghanistan for several months wearing a black beard and Afghan clothes. Married and the father of one child, he is a Muslim convert whose home is now in London.

A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy directed the Director General of the State Police and the Commissioners of Police in the city commissionerates to ensure least inconvenience to ordinary citizens during VIP movement unless the high dignitaries are of the status of, say, the President or the Prime Minister of India. The direction was made in a writ petition field by Advocate M. Gnanasekar, urging the Court to forbear the authorities from preventing the people of Tamil Nadu from using roads in the name of political campaigns by the Political leaders. The petition pertained to a solitary incident where some roads were closed on March 28, 2021, to make room for the Chief Minister to pass en route to a campaign meeting. Gnanasekar contended that even if special arrangements need to be made for VIPs on the ground of security, the ordinary citizens should not be made to suffer; there should be free flow of traffic. The Bench observed that this sentiment is shared all round that common citizens are inconvenienced by being required to wait for hours together because of VIP movement. “At times, it is even doubtful whether the persons who are accorded such special treatment are entitled thereto or whether there are any security concerns pertaining to them,” it observed. The Bench added, “There is no doubt that the Chief Minister should have the right of way and the security concerns surrounding the post demand that Chief Minister’s car not be stalled in traffic. Equally, the local police authorities should ensure that ordinary citizens are not put to great inconvenience or entire stretches of roads are prohibited from use or the traffic at crossings are stopped for any great length of time in connection with any VIP movement.” However, since the petition reflected only a solitary incident, the Bench disposed of the petition as the incident may have been more of an aberration than the practice.
