Davis reverses field, signs controversial gambling bill

The bill, AB 471, marks a victory for racetracks facing declines in revenues, as well as for labor groups seeking to unionize backstretch workers and ensure regulation of their housing and workplace conditions.

 

Gambling critics, however, assailed the Democratic governor for his about-face from last year, when he vetoed a similar measure he said would have expanded wagering too far.

 

In a two-page message released Monday, Davis said he reversed his position primarily because of a December 2000 federal law change explicitly permitting Internet gambling. Signing last year’s bill without that change “would have represented a significant expansion of gambling beyond federal law,” he stated.

 

But for the federal law to apply, a state must first affirm that horse race betting can occur via the Internet or telephone, said I. Nelson Rose, a Whittier Law School expert on gambling law.

 

“I don’t see how the change in federal law makes the policy decision any different,” Rose said.

 

Davis relied on a legal opinion offered by state Attorney  Togel General Bill Lockyer. In the opinion, Lockyer said that “because AB 471 will not create a new form or expand an existing form of gambling, it is not an expansion of gambling.”

 

The bill allows “advanced deposit wagering,” a system enabling gamblers to set up an account with a state-authorized racing association and place bets through the phone or Internet. Proposed safeguards aim to prevent minors from accessing accounts, as some critics fear could occur.

 

The labor provisions, when paired with at-home gambling opportunities, have been backed by a broad coalition of racetrack owners, horse trainers and labor organizers.

 

California has more than 3,500 backstretch workers, who clean and care for horses at racetracks throughout the state. Many live in inadequate storage rooms adjacent to stables, a condition they accept because they say they earn too little to afford housing elsewhere.

 

By all indications, Davis’ reversal came within the last month. As recently as early July, Roger Salazar, the governor’s deputy press secretary, said that “while (Davis) hasn’t weighed in on this bill, …

Togel Fans have been dealt with, now it’s the players’ turn

 

 

 

The strict legal norms in force in the United Kingdom have largely restrained once frightening soccer fans. It is not entirely impossible that soccer players will one day be put under control as well. That additional legal and educational measures are indicated has been confirmed again by the bulk of the Liverpool squad that ran riot in Portugal.

 

Several days before their triumphant display at Nou Camp, 15 players took advantage of coach Rafael Benítez’s absence and left the camp in Vale do Lobo to have a little fun at a night club. The usual effects of alcohol did not take too long to set in and Craig Bellamy even beat up John Arne Riise with a golf club when the Norwegian refused his plea to sing caraoke.

 

Since not even the noble attempts of captain Steven Gerrard were enough to calm the naughty players down, the police were called to escort the squad to their training camp, but the trouble continued. The most intoxicated among the Togel players, Dudek, Fowler and Pennant, took it out on cars, power boxes and the interiors of their rooms with the help of golf clubs. The police have intervened again and Dudek had to be cuffed to be put under control. Liverpool fined all the 15 merry partygoers and ordered them to play better than usual against Barcelona, which they did, especially Bellamy and Riise who conspired to score the winning goal at a venue infrequently conquered by visitors.

BLACKJACK STRATEGY. HOW TO WIN TOGEL AND NOT TO LOSE

 

 

As with standard blackjack, the first thing to take into consideration when playing online blackjack is: “How many decks of cards are being used?” This number can vary from 1 to as many as 15, depending on the casino you are visiting. Single deck blackjack is hard to find, but it is the simplest to keep track of. You simply chart the cards as you see them.

Since it is online blackjack, there is no dealer to watch you taking notes. With a visible chart of the cards played, a betting strategy can easily be put into place.

 

Take note of the chart above. Cards with a designation of “10” (that is the 10’s, Jacks, Queens and Kings) number 16 out of 52 cards. About halfway through the deck you will be able to accurately extrapolate the dealer’s down card and bet appropriately. This is a good time to make off the wall “double downs”, or taking just one hit in exchange for doubling your bet. If you are looking at a hand of 12 for instance and it does not seem likely that the next card will be a ten, take the chance for a double down.

 

The last couple of hands is where you need to be, so bet conservatively so as to keep yourself in the game to the end of the deck. By this time you should have a clear idea of how the cards will be dealt, based on what is left unchecked on your chart. Bet big when you know you will win, and the minimum if the house has it.

 

When dealing with multiple deck blackjack, you simply apply the strategy for single-deck, only to a larger scale. The above chart is extended out for however many decks are being used, and the cards are charted as they fall. Most people play online blackjack the same way as if they were in a live casino, it is this phenomena that allows the online casino to win at blackjack. Do not play swiftly, rather take your time and chart …
