The MGA has also ordered Betixx to submit data and documentation to assist with its investigation.The regulator said it will not comment further on any of the cases so as not to compromise any investigations that may need to be undertaken by the MGA or other authorities.However, the MGA has advised customers of the three operators to contact the regulator for information on any outstanding payments.Players are requested to send their full name, address, date of birth, telephone number, a copy of their passport or ID Card, Bet Service Group username, a description of the product in question and a screenshot of their balance.The trio of decisions comes after the MGA also recently moved to suspend BTM Entertainment’s licence.

- No Comments on Can the Rolls-Royce share price surge if it overcomes this huge trend?

Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) recently noted that the remote work trend has cut air travel. According to the company’s 2020 full year presentation, “some travel [was] displaced by advances in virtual platforms for business connectivity”. With the number of new Covid-19 cases dropping in many places, however, there is a possibility that many areas of the world will control the pandemic this year and fewer businesses might use remote work in the near and medium term. Here’s how I think the changing conditions concerning remote work could affect the Rolls-Royce share price as a result.Remote work has been a headwindRemote work or working online has been a headwind for Rolls-Royce since the beginning of 2020.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Due to the desire to socially distance, remote work took off during the pandemic. As a result, virtual platforms that allow for business connectivity (such as Zoom) surged in terms of activity. With more people doing work remotely, fewer people have had to travel through air. Many conventions that were normally in person were switched to virtual, for example.Rolls-Royce has been affected by this trend because it depends on civil aviation for a big part of its business. Specifically, the company makes a lot of its money from long-term contracts that are dependent on those engine flying hours. If fewer people fly due to remote work, total engine flying hours could decrease.Can the Rolls-Royce share price surge if remote work decreases?With the vaccine rolling out in many places, the pandemic could be controlled in many places this year. As a result, there is the potential for less remote work and more air travel. If that happens, Rolls-Royce could benefit fundamentally.While the company could benefit from less remote work, I don’t know if the Rolls-Royce share price will surge because of it. The market looks ahead, and has likely already priced in much of the future effects of remote work usage decreasing.It’s also important to note that many believe remote work is here to stay in some fashion. Many employers have noticed that they can get the same amount of work done for many jobs with remote work being included. Many employees also like working from home. Although their employees might still have to come to the office, many won’t have to come to the office every day given that they can work some days remotely.My final Foolish thoughtsI’d buy and hold the stock at the current share price. I reckon there are many fast-growing economies that have relatively low penetration of flights per person that could drive demand for new airplanes for decades to come. Given Rolls-Royce’s moat in aerospace engines and status as one of the leaders in an industry dominated by few firms, I believe the company will benefit from that trend.Rolls-Royce does have risk in the near term given new Covid-19 variants that have created uncertainty. If the variants become more resistant to vaccines than expected, the pandemic could last for longer and the company’s civil aerospace business might continue to not do well. This might not be good for the Rolls-Royce share price.All in all, however, I think the stock has a lot of potential in the long term given the growth in civil aviation.

“I think it’s an incredible opportunity and there’s no real testimony without a test. So it’s not hard to make peace with it. It happened, now move on and make the best of it. Even if you dwell on it, it isn’t going to change the outcome it just staggers with the process of recovery.”Even at a young age, Velleman’s career has been about scrapping hard. He forged a reputation trying to steal ball off much bigger opposition in better-resourced sides. It can boil over – in February he earned a red card for an elbow to a Cheetahs try-scorer, a moment he will have learnt from – but the tenacity is what has seen him come back from injury torment before.Digging in: Kings battle against Glasgow this season (Getty Images)So can he explain what he has learnt on the sidelines?“I’ll need more than just a page in a book,” he laughs. “The main thing has just been the psychology behind injury. How strong you can come back with a new mindset is incredible and hopefully I’ll be able to show that off in the future.“For other injured players I’d say: don’t feel too sorry for yourself, it could always have been worse. The sooner you get your recovery plan in motion and do not dwell on what happened, the sooner you’ll be back.”Which sounds like the ‘pcoket battleship’ is already tearing into his recovery. The young Southern Kings flanker has picked up a series of freak injuries Long-term injury: CJ Velleman and his run of bad luckSometimes, bad luck just follows you around.Thrust into the intensity of Super Rugby in 2016, CJ Velleman looked born to play at that level, with the fetcher earning rave reviews and even being compared to Sam Cane and David Pocock. But after making good progress in his recovery from a long-term knee injury sustained that same year, Velleman was struck down again, damaging the same knee at training in 2017. In the year the Kings pivoted to Pro14 rugby, he did not play a minute.The highly-rated loosie made his long-awaited Pro14 debut in his side’s first victory of the 2018-19 season, against Glasgow Warriors in September 2018, but suspension and another leg inury meant that he has been limited to just ten league games in total. Yet, at only 24, there was a confidence he could begin to realise his immense potential.The battler was set to make another comeback against Edinburgh on 4 January 2020 after that last leg injury. He was training fully. Then disaster struck. Again.“CJ was involved in a freak accident at training when he slipped and tore his ACL on his left knee,” Kings head of athletic performance Wayne Taylor told the world. The cruel run continued.Hanging out: Velleman (left) at a photocall in 2017 (Getty Images)When asked what the hell happened, Velleman tells Rugby World: “I often dwell on this because all of my main knee injuries have happened before any contact, so all of them have been kinda freakish to be honest with you. I guess it’s just a run of super unlucky blows that will hopefully turn now!“I just keep reminding myself that I’m still super blessed that it’s not career-ending yet. I still have the opportunity to go back in nine months and give it another go. Until the doctor says I must consider stopping, I still have an opportunity to go back to an awesome union.Related: Read Henry Trinder on recovery from long-term injury in the new Rugby World LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Grabbing hold: CJ Velleman against Benetton in 2018 (Inpho) To read our long-read on long-term injury, check out the new issue of Rugby World.Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Teenage Outreach to the PoorInspirationBy Jeanne BowserWhile most people are scrambling for last minute presents at the mall, teenagers reached out to the poor in Apopka this Christmas weekend.Apopka’s bus station area was surrounded by people not waiting for a bus, but in line for some food along with picking up free toys and clothes. A connecting vacant lot was the hot spot on Saturday afternoon for the poor and needy; not only to have their physical needs met, but some spiritual love and truth to go along. Mabel Stevens, a member of New Destiny Christian Center, began planning on Monday, posting on Facebook, announcing the outreach, which inspired people to get involved. Five people passed out flyers to 480 homes, 4 hours a day… several days before the event. First Antioch Baptist Missionary Church here in Apopka donated tables and chairs. There were 11 volunteers for event, and more than half were teenagers.One man was reported to say. “I want you guys to continue doing this. No one does this for us. Thank you for doing this for us.”Looks like great things are happening in Apopka!Jeanne Bowser is the Children’s Pastor at The Word of Life Church in Apopka.

Typical houses located on a hillside sit on flat earth created by piling up wall-like stonework, making it inaccessible from outside.

Writing under the pseudonym of Acid Flask, he criticised several government policies, including the A*STAR scholarship system and Yeo’s justifications of them.

The court was hearing the plea under Section 56 (2) of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 read with Regulations 52(4) and 55(2) of the Adoption Regulations praying to appoint the adoptive father (the biological mother having agreed to give the child in adoption to her second husband) of the person of the minor female child so that the latter is entitled to the legal status of biological daughter with all therights of succession and inheritance and for all purposes allowed by the law. On behalf of the petitioners, it was urged that the 2nd petitioner had married the 1st petitioner and is leading a happy life. The minor child is also a part of this family and she has recognised and accepted the 1st petitioner as her father. The 1st petitioner has come forward to adopt the minor child and the 2nd petitioner, the natural mother of the minor, is also desirous that the 1st petitioner is legally recognised as the father of the minor child. Denying the relief, Justice P. T. Asha observed that “it cannot be granted for the simple reason that the said late V.Venkatesh was the biological / natural father of minor Sahanaa and on the date on which the birth certificate was issued by the Authorities the said Venkatesh was very much alive and it is he who has been described as the father of the minor child in the birth certificate issued by the Authorities”. The Single Judge proceeded to observe that the adoption does not sever the relationship of the minor with her biological father, the only exception being when the biological father himself renounces his right as father of the minor and consents for the child to be taken in adoption by the adoptive father. “Even in such cases, it is my view that the status of being the biological father does not change. It is only the status of an adoptive father, custody and maintenance of the minor that changes hands”, the Single Bench asserted. The Court opined that while it is not in dispute that the 2nd petitioner as the biological / natural mother of the minor is empowered to give the child in adoption, but she cannot deprive the child’s right to have the name of her biological / natural father in her birth certificate. The bench appreciated that the registration of the births is governed by the provisions of the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969. Sections 8, 9 and 10 mandates that the information of the births and deaths be given to theAuthorities by the persons listed. The Act also makes provision for a delayed registration and the procedure is encapsulated in Section 13 of the Act. Section 15 talks about the circumstances under which an entry in the register of births and deaths can be corrected or cancelled. This Section would provide that a correction or cancellation of the entry in the register of births and deaths could be made in the following circumstances:(a) When the entry is erroneous in form or substance; and (b) The entry has been fraudulently or improperly made. On the occurrence of the above, the application could be made to the Authorities seeking correction or cancellation by giving the reasons. The said Section further provides that there shall be no alteration to the original entry and the correction can only be made in the margin with the Authorities signing the same. “Therefore, from a reading of Section 15 it is clear that the original entry cannot be corrected / deleted and the incorporation of the new details can be made only in the margin”, noted the bench. The Court further reflected that the State of Tamil Nadu in pursuance of the powers vested under Section 30 of the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969 has notified the Tamil Nadu Registration of Births and Deaths Amended Rules called the Tamil Nadu Registration of Births and Deaths Rules, 2000. “In the case of adoption the form which is prescribed is Form 1-A. Serial Nos.4 and 5 in the said form relates to the name of the mother and father respectively. Serial Nos.7 and 8 relates to the name of the adoptive mother and the adoptive father. Therefore, the request by the petitioners to delete the name of the biological / natural father from the original birth certificate is legally not sustainable particularly when the rules clearly provide for incorporating the name of the adoptive parents separately in Column Nos. 7 and 8 as adoptive parents and not as the natural parents”, remarked the bench. The Single Judge was of the view that the biological father is no more and therefore it cannot be said that he severed his ties with his daughter. Even though the biological / natural mother has given her consent for the 1st petitioner stepping into the shoes of the father by filing this petition, this Court cannot permit the substitution of the name of the 1st petitioner as the biological / natural father of the minor.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Since the local body itself directed the shutting down of the bus stand and the shops, it cannot demand license fee during the period when the shop remained close. Justice Swaminathan observed in the order :”The question is whether notwithstanding the stipulation of absolute performance cast on the licensee, this Court would be justified in treating the”lock down” as a force majeure event which will relieve the licensee from performing his obligation to the corresponding extent. My answer is in the affirmative. Section 51 of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 states that when a contract consists of reciprocal promise to be simultaneously performed, no promisor need perform his promise unless the promisee is ready and willing to perform his reciprocal promise. As per Section54, performance cannot be claimed till the other has been performed. The local body must keep the bus stand open and in good repair. The licensee must be permitted to keep the licensed shop open. If the local body had directed the licensee to close down the shop, it cannot demand fee from the licensee for the period when the shop remained closed. Of course, the licensee must be free of any wrong doing. If the licensee is made to suffer for no fault of his by direction to close down the shop, then, the question of payment of fee will notarise. This is clearly an implied term in the contract”.The Court also observed, referring to various Supreme Court precedents, that a state instrumentality has to abide by the principles of equality and non-arbitrariness as enshrined in Article 14 of the Constitution even in contractual matters with private parties.”The State acting whether as a landlord or a tenant is required to act bonafide and not arbitrarily, when the same is likely to affect prejudicially the right of others. A statute must be construed justly. An unjust law is no law at all. A statutory order or discretion exercised by a statutory authority must be tested on the anvil of the constitutional scheme. The action on the part of the State must be reasonable even in contractual matters”, the bench observed.’Lockdown Prima Facie In Nature Of Force Majeure’ : Delhi HC Stays Bank Guarantees’ Invocation [Read Order]The Court also took a dig at the bureaucracy for passing an order in September to grant only two months waiver of license fee on account of lockdown. The Court noted that the order was issued on the basis of a recommendation made by the Commissioner of Municipal Administration in June 2020 to grant two months waiver. However the recommendation was only acted upon only in September but without considering the fact that the lockdown was further extended.”It is seen that the said G.O was issued in response to the letter dated 18.06.2020sent by the Commissioner of Municipal Administration. A letter sent in the month of June 2020 will obviously cover only the preceding months of April and May. No one would have anticipated that the lockdown would continue for several more months. Therefore, when the G.O was issued in September, it straightaway accepted the proposal which was confined only to April and May2020. That is how bureaucracy functions. The Secretary to Government did not deem it necessary to go beyond the terms of the request made by the Commissioner of Municipal Administration. But a constitutional court cannot have a blinkered vision. It must take into account the position that prevails on the date when the lis is adjudicated”, the Court said.[Force Majeure] Taking Cue From Courts: What Worked, What Didn’tThe reason for granting waiver for the months of April and May would equally hold good for the entire”total lockdown” period, the Court said.The Court allowed the writ petition directing complete waiver of license fee from March 24 to September 6, 2020. As regards the subsequent period of partial lockdown, the court permitted the petitioner to approach the authorities for relief.”This Court believes in the principle of nudging as propounded by Richard H.Thaler. This Court would expect the authorities to take note of the ground realities and respond appropriately”, the Court said in conclusion.Case DetailsTitle : R Narayanan v The Government of Tamil NaduCase No : WP(MD) 19596 of 2020Bench : Justice GR SwaminathanAppearances : Advocate N Dilip Kumar for the petitioner; S Angappan, Government Advocate; P.Athimoolpandian for Municipal CorporationClick here to read/download the judgment Next Story
