AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address The Darts Regulation Authority (DRA), the global regulatory body for the sport, has suspended two players after suspicious betting on matches they played in was flagged by the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).The cases relate to darts professionals Kyle McKinstry, ranked 92nd in the world, and Wessel Nijman, ranked 288th, who have both been suspended from attending or competing in DRA-sanctioned events until disciplinary committee hearings have taken place.In the case of McKinstry, suspicious betting on a match against David Evans in the Modus A Night at the Darts series on 30 April was flagged by the IBIA. McKinstry lost that match 5-0, with further suspicious activity identified in a 2 May match against Nijman.For Nijman, suspicious betting was identified in a match played on 14 May, again versus Evans, and again in the Modus Icons of Darts series. Njiman lost the match 4-0.The DRA noted that there was no suggestion that Evans was involved in any way with the alleged breach of the rules.This prompted the DRA to launch investigations, working closely with Sportradar’s Integrity Services arm, the GB Gambling Commission’s Sports Betting Intelligence Unit, the Malta Gaming Authority and Gibraltar Gambling Regulator, with input from betting operators.DRA chair Nigel Mawer concluded that both McKinstry and Nijman have cases to answer, with Nijman to be investigated for one count of match-fixing and McKinstry on two counts.The rules state that it is an offence to make any effort to fix or contrive – or be party to any effort to fix or contrive – the result, score, progress, conduct or any other aspect of a darts event. Providing information related to an event that is not in the public domain or readily accessible to a third party also constitutes an offence under DRA rules.McKinstry faces a separate charge of failing to cooperate with the inquiry, by failing to provide itemised billing data for his phone.DRA rules state that players and registered agents must cooperate with any investigation, by providing all information related to potential breaches.This requires individuals to hand over betting accounts, bank records, telephone records, internet service records, social media accounts, email and other records stored on phones, tablets, electronic devices, computer hard drives or otherwise.The punishment for the offences range from fines to permanent suspensions from the sport.last_img read more

Munster 28 London Irish 14 – The Verdict

first_img TAGS: London IrishMunster Munster kicked into gear with just 10 minutes of the game to go to beat London Irish 28-14 at Thomond Park.Neither team could qualify for the quarter finals of the Heineken Cup, and the scoreboard at half-time reflected their dampened spirits. It was still 0-0 at the break, but it wasn’t for want of determination by either team.Munster had three near misses in the first half – the ball was held up over the line twice, and referee Peter Allan ruled a forward pass at their third attempt, to stop Keith Earls scoring in the corner.The game picked up a little bit more tempo in the second half, but it wasn’t until the final 12 minutes of the game, when Sailosi Tagicakibau scored London Irish’s second try to go 14-7, that Munster sparked into life. Only Leicester have beaten Munster at home in the Heineken Cup, and the home side were not about to relinquish their impressive home record after last week’s humiliating defeat away to Toulon.Tony McGahan praised his side for having the determination to pick up the tempo at the end of the game, and admitted that the bench brought some tempo to their performance. “Full credit to the players for putting in a performance over 80 minutes. To pick up in the last 15 minutes takes real spirit and belief,” he said.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) “We were playing for our lives out there,” added McGahan. “We have a great home record and we were not ready to give that up. Our reserves also gave us a little bit of go forward towards the end of the game.”McGahan’s opposite number, Toby Booth, saw promise in London Irish’s performance despite the loss. “To be in the contest for as long as we were was outstanding,” he said.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Our defence especially was outstanding, and the game was essentially a dead rubber, so I was pleased with the intensity and passion we played with.”London Irish will go back to the Premiership in three weeks looking to re-launch their bid to reach the top four, while Munster will fill one of the remaining Amlin Challenge Cup quarter final spots.last_img read more

Bishops and commissions on ministry would benefit from education and training in how best to evaluate applicants with a history of addiction who are now living in recovery. In a related action, the Task Force on the Episcopacy has filed Resolution A148, which calls for amending the church’s canons on ministry to further define the substance of background checks required for bishop election nominees. The amendment requires that nominees be evaluated for substance, chemical and alcohol use and abuse.We recommend that the Executive Council and the General Convention take necessary steps to develop and implement a required alcohol and substance abuse training program for all persons in the process of formation for ordination and for those already ordained. As in other professions, clergy should be required to repeat this training at designated intervals in order to maintain their license. We recommend that the Church Pension Group (CPG), in its function as recorder of ordinations, establish a central personnel database to track clergy employment, discipline, issues with impairment and other related background information for all clergy in the church that can be accessed during search and transition processes. The Standing Commission on Governance, Structure, Constitution and Canons has filed Resolution A120 calling for the Archives of the Episcopal Church to create a secure database registry to track clergy discipline data to provide statistical information. In its current proposed form, such a database would not track specific incidents by name.We recommend that the College for Bishops develop a substantive training component on addiction and substance abuse to be incorporated into the “Living Our Vows” program for new bishops that would include several components. We recommend that the House of Bishops incorporate into its meetings an ongoing process to address the same areas.We recommend that the bishop with oversight of the Office for Pastoral Development, drawing on the research from this commission, establish a standardized process for conducting episcopal elections, based on best practices so that it can be tailored to meet the particular characteristics of a given diocese and that doing so can ensure that the key components to effective screening and discernment will not be lost in the process. The Task Force on the Episcopacy has filed Resolution A142 and Resolution A145 calling for dioceses to develop processes for bishop elections that are consistent with the task force’s recommendations.We recommend that the presiding bishop, drawing on the research of this commission, establish a team to serve as a resource on alcoholism and other forms of addiction to provide a rapid response to issues of questionable impairment, to provide clergy or other concerned individuals with confidential advice, and to assist with monitoring, recovery and re-entry into ministry.We recommend that CREDO develop a program component to help participants explore their relationship to alcohol, drugs and other addictive substances and behaviors.We recommend that the Pastoral Development Committee of the House of Bishops, working with a knowledgeable and skilled advisor, as well as the Executive Council, evaluate the policies and practices of meetings, as well as the meetings of its commissions, committees and boards, to recommend changes that may contribute to a healthy environment with regard to alcohol and addiction.We recommend that the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies appoint a working group to conduct a review of the canons of the church and to identify canonical impediments to the effective pastoral response, intervention and treatment of addiction and substance abuse. This working group should report its findings and recommendations to the Standing Commission on Structure, Governance, Constitution and Canons, for review and action.— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service and a freelance writer and editor based in Brooklyn.

Champlain College begins construction of new dorms

first_imgConstruction of the first of three new residence halls at Champlain College began this summer adjacent to Skiff Hall on South Willard Street. The project, dubbed “Res-Tri,” is part of the College’s Master Plan to provide campus housing for up to 90 percent of its 2,000 undergraduate students, according to Michel George, Associate Vice President of Campus Planning and Auxiliary Services.It is anticipated that the building will be completed and ready for occupancy for the Fall 2012 semester. The second and third residence halls have received their permits, but no construction date has been set. “We’re very excited [about the project],” said George. “It will help us better serve the needs of our students and add to the aesthetics of the neighborhood. It’s a win-win for everybody involved.”The Res-Tri Project consists of three residence halls, green space, landscaping and a promenade in the 4.7 acre site bounded by Main Street, South Willard Street, Maple Street and Edmunds School. A central promenade from Main Street to Perry Hall provides access to classrooms, dining halls, residence halls and administrative offices. The promenade creates an internal student walkway on campus that will draw students off the public sidewalks to an internal environment.The first residence hall known as “Building A,” will provide 95 beds for students in rooms that can be turned into suites. The new hall will include common rooms, laundry, a ski tuning room, trash room, and other spaces commonly found in state-of-the-art residence halls, George explained. Exterior and site elements include a student patio, sitting walls and landscaping. The outdoor amphitheater and sitting wall area will be skateboard friendly.Champlain College offers a range of housing options for students, including 19 restored Victorian-era mansions that ring the main campus, along with several suite-style residence halls and modern apartment-style residence halls off campus for upperclassmen.PC Construction of South Burlington (formerly Pizzagalli Construction Co.) is the contractor for the Res-Tri project. Site preparation work began in June and crews this week are beginning construction of the building’s foundation and pouring footings.CBT Architects, a Boston-based firm designed the project. According to George, the Res-Tri is designed to match the aesthetics of the historic Hill Section neighborhood. The front of Building A, facing South Willard Street, will be primarily brick and retain the look of a traditional residential building, complete with two chimneys and multiple sections, similar to the adjacent Whiting Hall. The western side of the building, which will open on a new green area, will be slightly more modern with a combination brick, zinc and glass design.The Res Tri project continues Champlain’s green standards and will include a geothermal heating and cooling system similar to the energy-saving system at the Welcome and Admission Center at Roger H. Perry Hall. The geothermal system takes advantage of the constant temperature of the groundwater to heat and cool the building. This system uses far less energy than traditional methods of heating and cooling. In addition to the geothermal system, all LEED Certification standards will be met.Looking ahead, George said the College is moving forward with a project to dramatically expand the Hauke Family Campus Center on Maple Street to serve as the new Center for Creative Media. The expansion will include new classrooms, faculty offices, a large performance space, a new dining facility, bookstore, and copy center. Lab space and work stations for students in the Communications and Creative Media division will be added as well as a transportation center to shuttle people to and from parking at the Lakeside Campus. Construction is expected to begin the summer of 2012.For additional information about the projects and regular updates, visit http://www.champlain.edu/Campus-Planning.html(link is external) or email [email protected](link sends e-mail).About Champlain College: Since 1878, Champlain College has provided career-focused education to students from its hilltop campus in Burlington, Vt. Champlain’s distinctive educational approach embodies the notion that true learning only occurs when information and experience come together to create knowledge. Champlain offers traditional undergraduate and online undergraduate courses, along with online certificate and degree programs and eight master’s degree programs. Champlain offers study abroad programs at its campuses in Montreal, Quebec and Dublin, Ireland. Champlain College will be included in the Princeton Review’s “best colleges” guidebook, The Best 376 Colleges: 2012 Edition. Champlain was named a “Top-Up-and-Coming School” by U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges and was ranked in the top tier of 2011 Regional Colleges in the North.
