German turnover tax proposal to be assessed by Bundestag committees

first_imgThe dates of hearings for the bill in these committees have not yet been announced. Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA), meanwhile, went a step further, arguing that the tax rate is not only worryingly high, but that by taxing online operators at a much higher rate than their land-based counterparts, it violates European law.  When the state treaty was being debated in Sachsen, operator association the Deutscher Sportwettenverband (DSWV) attempted to get the state legislature make its approval of the Treaty contingent on lower taxes being put in place But the proposal for a 5.3% tax on turnover for both slots and poker has proved controversial, as it is seen by the gambling industry as prohibitively high. Many experts have warned it is likely to leave licensed operators at a disadvantage when competing against offshore operators, especially when they are subject to other restrictions such as caps on slot stakes and spin speeds, and a €1,000 monthly deposit cap. The bill sets out the tax structure for online slots and poker under the country’s new State Treaty on Gambling (Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvetrag). The new regulatory model is set to come into force on 1 July, after it was ratified by all 16 federal states. 10th May 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Poker Slots Regulation Criticism has come from multiple sources. In January, when the Bundesrat was still considering an 8% tax on slot turnover, a report from leading economist Dr Justus Haucap and the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics (DICE) warned the tax could doom Germany’s new regulatory structure by making regulated gaming unviable. Instead of a turnover tax, the report concluded, tax should be based on gross revenue, and set between 15% and 20%, which would be roughly in line with tax rates in the rest of Europe.

Tags: Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag GlüNeuRStV Tax It said that if a turnover tax was to be introduced, it should be no higher than 1%, though it said a gross revenue tax of between 15% and 20% would be preferable. It was drafted by the Bundesrat, the body representing the German states at the federal level, and must be approved by the Bundestag before it can be implemented. Betclic Everest-owned online operator Bet-at-home said the transitional regime was the main reason why revenue dropped 5.5% year-on-year, while LeoVegas saw its revenue from Germany drop 55.7%. Currently, operators may offer online casino games in Germany through a transitional system ahead of the treaty coming into effect, but only if they abide by these terms of the new treaty.

Similarly, a report from Goldmedia – commissioned by Entain, Flutter and Greentube – warned that half of all German slots players may end up playing with unregulated sites if turnover is taxed at 5.3%.

The People’s Champ — beautiful, brilliant and great

first_imgMalcolm X and Muhammad AliThe champ has passed. “The Greatest” has gone. Muhammad Ali is dead. It was a foregone conclusion that this day would come — “the day” when everything a person has been ends with one final exhalation. It comes for everyone. When it was announced that Muhammad Ali was hospitalized yet again, this time with a respiratory illness, it seemed, sadly, that it was only a matter of time. And it was. Surrounded by family, he passed quietly of septic shock on June 3.Since his death, Muhammad Ali has been lauded in major bourgeois media, in minor sources, in print and in every form of media around the world. He is remembered by people too young to have seen him box and by revolutionaries and reactionaries.  Everyone has something to say about Muhammad Ali.Who was Muhammad Ali? This can be confusing. People are complex. History is too; it is dialectical. So the ideas and beliefs of an individual, like society as a whole, are affected by the real world around us. Changes are due to objective and subjective factors. A simpler way to say it is that the political tumult of the 1960s era that produced Muhammad Ali was no more by the 1980s. So the Muhammad Ali who supported Ronald Reagan was a different Ali. The revolutionary fervor around the world had quieted, and the Black Liberation struggle that he championed had been violently repressed by the police, the FBI, the military and the courts.  Years of reaction followed, with the destruction of the industrial heartland due to high technology, and the capitalists’ drive to find higher rates of exploitation in the Third World, coupled with an assault on workers and oppressed people in the United States..Even then, one cannot say that Muhammad Ali’s unfortunate support for Reagan or other right-wing politicians defined his post-boxing life. The establishment that embraces him today portrays him as just an icon, a person with nebulous politics, who was loved and respected by all, who could shake hands with Fidel Castro or Nelson Mandela and then sit down with Bill Clinton in the White House.The people who eulogize Muhammad Ali today would lambaste the Ali whom we hold close. They wanted to silence him at the height of his physical prowess and political significance. A symbol for the oppressedWho was Muhammad Ali? In three words, he was beautiful, brilliant and great. He was our Blackness, our expression through and through — and yet, still more. He was a symbol for all  despised and oppressed people who yearn and struggle for more.  He was our “religion” — what Karl Marx called “the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions.” He was everything that we were and are — outfront and defiant for all to see how magnificent and brave we are and must continue to be.The dialogue will continue about Ali’s political importance. But what made him the Greatest must be reclaimed.It was not only boxing that made Ali great and the champ. His skill as a boxer is part of it. Some might sum up boxing as he once did, “Boxing is a lot of white men watching two Black men beat each other up.” That description brings to mind the first chapter in Ralph Ellison’s book, “Invisible Man,” sometimes presented as a short story called “Battle Royal.” It would be difficult to argue against that perception. Most fighters are from the oppressed world. Consequently, so are most fans, except those who can afford to see the biggest fights and those who profit the most are white. It is the hurt game, a brutal contest. It is, perhaps, a contradiction for this writer, a revolutionary, to enjoy.In the pantheon of boxersBoxing is a sport of science and skill. It is a chess match that requires a great deal of thinking and certain physical attributes.  Ali possessed it all. It is difficult to rank athletes from different eras because scientific advances have made training more efficient and helped increase the performance level of athletes.Some scribes rank Ali at the top of the pantheon of boxers; some rank him in the top five. Often these rankings are culled together by people who have never been punched in the face. But it would not be sacrilegious to rank Sugar Ray Robinson as history’s greatest fighter and Henry Armstrong second, with Ali third, or maybe lower, but definitely in the top six. Robinson and Armstrong were tremendous athletes and fighters who accomplished amazing feats. Armstrong held belts from three different weight classes at the same time.Ali’s abilities and accomplishments put him in a unique class. He was the fastest heavyweight the world had ever seen, in terms of hand and foot speed. But it was his hands and the spectacle of the dizzying blur of combinations he would throw that held many people in awe. He was also light on his feet for someone of his size. He could move backwards and laterally while popping a jab.  He could set his feet, uncork a right hand and then dance away before his opponent could respond. His balance was like a dancer’s, and his punches had power from both the torque generated and the leverage he was able to get.If someone were looking to create another Muhammad Ali, that person would need to take the hand, foot speed and balance of an early Floyd Mayweather; the reflexes of a prime Roy Jones Jr.; the combination of speed and power of Shane Mosley; the clowning of Emanuel Augustus, and then put them all on a 6-foot- 3-inch frame. Then add the buttery voice of Sam Cooke, the skill with vernacular of Michael Eric Dyson and the sing-song quality of the delivery of rapper Method Man — and you get Muhammad Ali.Ali made the violence of boxing almost beautiful to watch. When his reflexes dulled and his feet lost their speed, it was his ring intelligence and his superior will that defeated opponents. He faced some of the most efficient punchers in heavyweight history — Liston, Shavers, Foreman, Ron Lyle, Joe Frazier — and he beat them all.Who could forget Ali’s fight against George Foreman and the images of Ali surrounded by throngs in the Democratic Republic of Congo? Foreman was the establishment’s pick, a powerful fighter with a more fearsome reputation than Sonny Liston. Ali took Foreman’s every punch and taunted his foe, wearing him down before coming alive to knock him out in the eighth round.  It was a demonstration of his in-ring greatness, as he suggested it would be.The ‘People’s Champ’The fighter is part of the “champ,” just a piece of what made Ali great. That part can’t be separated from the whole; without it he would not have had the world’s stage or drawn such ire from bourgeois politicians and their media mouthpieces.What made him the “People’s Champ” and greater than even his in-ring exploits is what Ali did with his fame and allure. When he joined the Nation of Islam in 1964, it made more of a political statement than it would today, though it remains one. Ali said then: “I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize. But get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me.”  His statement symbolized the period of revolution against Western imperialism and white supremacy, as well as the Black Liberation struggle in the U.S.Ali stood to lose everything he fought for, but that threat did now cow him. He said what the Black masses felt. At a time of American apartheid, when Civil Rights leaders were being jailed, beaten and assassinated, he stood up as a Black nationalist and taunted the dominant nationality unceasingly. He couldn’t be controlled or ignored.The Civil Rights Movement was still the predominant wing of the Black political movement. But Ali’s presence was an important component of what would become the most feared wing of the Black struggle — the Black Liberation movement.When Ali was drafted into the Army, he could have stated that he was a conscientious objector solely on religious grounds. But he insisted, “No Viet Cong never called me n—-r.”  Ali’s further elaboration set the world afire: “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?”His internationalist sentiment exposed the great hypocrisy of why the U.S. claimed it was in Southeast Asia. Even if it was not understood that the U.S. had material interests and ideological reasons for waging war against the people of Southeast Asia, Ali’s refusal and explanations hit home. It was like Langston Hughes’ character Jesse B. Semple, an everyman, learning Internationalism and Anti-Racism 101. ‘I’ve been in jail for 400 years’Ali explained, “I ain’t draft dodging. I ain’t burning no flag. I ain’t running to Canada. I’m staying right here. You want to send me to jail? Fine, you go right ahead. I’ve been in jail for 400 years. I could be there for four or five more, but I ain’t going no 10,000 miles to help murder and kill other poor people. If I want to die, I’ll die right here, right now, fightin’ you, if I want to die. You my enemy, not no Chinese, no Vietcong, no Japanese. You my opposer when I want freedom. You my opposer when I want justice. You my opposer when I want equality. Want me to go somewhere and fight for you? You won’t even stand up for me right here in America, for my rights and my religious beliefs. You won’t even stand up for my rights here at home.”This stance helped to unify the sentiments of Black people across the country and usher in further militancy in the anti-war movement and the Black struggle. Jim Brown, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, Willie Davis, Curtis Stokes and others, athletes at the prime of their careers, made their objections to the war public in a unified way.Ali’s stance resulted in the loss of his license to fight, his championship belts, money — and his best fighting years. He knew of this possibility and remained resolute. When he returned to the ring, his physical talents were somewhat diminished.  Reflexes and speed are the first things a fighter loses.Beloved worldwideThis is the Ali that the world — outside of mainstream bourgeois circles — remembers. It is why he could travel anywhere in the world — to Cuba, Iraq, Libya, the Congo, Philippines and elsewhere — and people by the tens of thousands would gather and wait to see him. This is why he was respected by revolutionaries and anti-imperialists.It is also why a reviled, bourgeois, reactionary demagogue like Donald Trump or any other politician might speak glowingly of him today, but would have hated him 50 years ago. Throw a rock in any direction, and you might hit someone who speaks of Ali as if they are memorializing the same man the oppressed do. They lie.That is not our Ali. Our Muhammad Ali was not safe. Our Ali spoke like us and for us. We keep him close to our chest, and that is the Ali we mourn. Our Ali believed in doing the impossible: “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”He was The Greatest. We will remember him as we fight on. Ali presente! We will win. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In some areas we are running over 400 units behind the 10 year average.” He also stated that soybean yields, while good, were hurt by the lack of rain in August. Facebook Twittercenter_img Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePost Rain Delay Harvest Update on the HAT Tuesday Morning Edition Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Oct 9, 2017 SHARE Rain put the harvest on hold in many areas of the state.  After several weeks of ideal harvest weather, a short break came as a relief for most producers. Eric Miller, with DuPont Pioneer, says yields are continuing to come in above expectations, “Yield results for both corn and soybeans are coming in well above grower expectations, especially given the kind of planting and growing season we have had.” Miller says, despite very different planning dates, most fields have evened up as the season has gone along. However, moisture content remains an issue, “In the areas where we had replanting or late planted crops, harvest moisture levels are running a good 10 points above the earlier planted crops.” He added that vastly different growth stages were an issue this summer, but the warm and dry September weather has pushed all crops toward maturity quickly.last_img read more

New Interior Design, Fashion Merchandising facility aims to keep program competitive

first_imgprintOn Thursday nights, some fashion merchandising majors dread going to class. It’s not the classwork or the instructor that they want to avoid — it’s the walk that takes them off TCU’s campus to a building they say that doesn’t have enough workspace for students.In the spring, TCU plans to construct a new building nestled behind the Moudy Complex at the corner of Greene Avenue and West Cantey Street.Isabella Mancini, a sophomore fashion merchandising major, said the walk from Moudy to the off-campus classroom makes some students feel unsafe.“The shuttle doesn’t stop at the building, and it makes it very difficult to get to class,” Mancini said.Students are given 10 minutes of transition time between classes. However, the on-average 12-minute walk makes it hard for some students to get to class on time. Walk from Moudy to Interior Design and Fashion Merchandising building.Because of the far location, students often want to drive, but parking spaces are scarce. The lack of student parking for the current building prevents driving from being an option for many, Mancini explained.The location is not the only problem. According to Kenzie Ashley, a first-year fashion merchandising major, the current building is also rundown and does not have enough space for students to work efficiently.The new state-of-the-art Interior Design and Fashion Merchandizing facility will offer a variety of new spaces for innovation and learning — including four computer labs, a textile testing lab, flexible seminar and jury rooms, and space for archival storage for the TCU historic dress collection. Marketing Coordinator of the College of Fine Arts, Kathryn Dunn, said this is all geared toward providing the best possible environment for TCU students.Dunn said ground will be broken this spring. The completion date is anticipated to be in fall 2019. At that point, TCU students will have an on-campus location with improved space. According to Dunn, this is important for TCU’s Department of Interior Design and Fashion Merchandising to remain competitive with other programs around the nation.
