The company plans to use the proceeds to strengthen its software engineering resources in order to better serve existing customers in the country. GAN currently works with a number of US-based clients such as WinStar.com, and the company expects its customer base to expand with the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding legalised sports betting. Increases in engineering resources will also take place in Bulgaria, where GAN has been operating a facility since 2016. Aside from this, GAN intends to commit part of the funds to repay in full the £2m 9% convertible unsecured loan notes issued in April 2017. The subscription is subject to approval by shareholders and upon admission of subscription shares to trading on AIM and the ESM. Dermot Smurfit, chief executive of GAN, said: “This strategic capital raising exercise positions GAN to consolidate its US market position and capture substantial incremental revenue opportunities available resulting from both internet gaming and sports betting regulation in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other US states expected to regulate Internet gambling in the near future.”Related article: GAN extends with Paddy Power Betfair in New Jersey Regions: US Casino & games Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Mr. Fortune can now truly Rest In Peace because of his Episcopal Faith. I believe God is teaching us all a lesson with Mr. Fortune’s story. Although the past on earth cannot be changed, it still remains true; we are equal in God’s eyes, and God will have the final word in all our lives.

John Andrews says: August 27, 2013 at 11:14 am I think this is news worthy for the national news…………..This being a historic week in our time as we mark Dr. King’s famous 16 minutes plus in our own history. Makes me proud to be a member of this body of Christ harry L. Knisely says: [Diocese of Connecticut] The Rev. Amy Welin started as the newly called priest-in-charge of St. John’s, Waterbury, in September 2012. A few months after that, Amy recalled in a phone interview, she received a call from the recently retired director of the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Marie Galbraith, asking Amy if she would be willing to bury a man named “Fortune” who had died in 1798.As described on the museum’s website, “Fortune was an African American man enslaved by Waterbury physician Dr. Preserved Porter in the late 18th century.”There was an account, from an old reference book named Anderson’s History of Waterbury, that a slave named Larry had died by drowning in the Naugatuck River and that his bones had been “prepared for anatomical study” by Dr. Porter, who was a bone surgeon at a time when access to skeletons for medical study was extremely limited.After research begun in the 1990s, the bones were determined to actually be those of Fortune.Amy Welin also learned that Dr. Porter’s wife, Lydia, was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Waterbury and it was likely thanks to her that Fortune had been baptized there in December 1797.“When I realized he had been baptized at St. John’s,” Amy said, “I thought, ‘Oh my heavens, this man is actually my parishioner!’” She gladly agreed to bury “Mr. Fortune,” as she calls him, out of respect.“I am very excited,” Amy said. “We are giving a parishioner the decent and respectful burial that he was denied 215 years ago.”The service, followed by burial, then a reception at the Mattatuck Museum, has been scheduled for Thursday, September 12, starting at 4 p.m.The gruesome detailsAmy said that according to the story in Anderson’s History, when the body was recovered, Dr. Porter “processed his body at the riverside,” brought the bones back to his estate on the east side of Waterbury, and had them boiled. The bones were then used for anatomical study. The generations of bone doctors that followed in his family passed the bones down over the years.In the 1930s, one of Dr. Porter’s descendants, also a physician, sent the bones to be reticulated – put together to make a skeleton – in Germany and then gave the skeleton to the Mattatuck Museum. It came with the name “Larry” written on his forehead, and each bone bore identification, in writing.The skeleton was put on display in the 1940s and it became a popular attraction. During the 1960s the museum’s collections were refocused and the skeleton was displayed as Waterbury’s first “medical museum” and “a tangible reminder that slavery existed in the North.” Out of respect for the remains, and the community, the museum director took the skeleton down in 1970 and stored it in the basement.Community-based history committee takes the leadIn the early 1990s, Maxine Watts, who was the president of the Waterbury chapter of the NAACP, realized there was not much yet recorded about the city’s African American history and asked the Mattatuck Museum to guide the group of volunteers in a project to locate the city’s oldest African Americans and record their life stories. The museum provided expert training, and committee members listened to and recorded the stories of over 40 people eighty years old and over. They also created an archive of photos of these residents from the early 20th century.“The committee members did an enormous amount of work and produced a body of history that will be helpful forever to understanding the history of African Americans in Waterbury,” said Marie Galbraith, who served as the museum’s liaison to the committee.According to Maxine, just after the committee had finished that work she received a letter from a city resident that challenged them further.“It said that the committee had done a great job, but they should ‘get with it’ because there was an older African American in the city,” she said. The writer had included an old postcard from the museum of “Larry the Skeleton.”The committee, working with the museum, took up the challenge and sought the assistance of anthropologists, archeologists, and other scientists and historians in Connecticut. They learned the bones were really those of Fortune, and they wanted to learn where he had been born, how old he was when he died, the kind of work he did, and how he died.Research on Fortune’s bonesFortune’s remains were taken to Howard University where the late Dr. Mark Mack, who taught there, carefully washed off the words and numbers on the bones. Washing off glue that held the bones together revealed a damaged vertebra at the top of his spinal column.“Dr. Mack believed this was the cause of Fortune’s death,” said Marie Galbraith.But as there was no investigation at that time, drowning was listed as the cause of death on the death certificate, issued in 2013.Other scientists who examined Fortune’s remains included Connecticut state archaeologist Dr. Nick Bellantoni, Dr. Leslie Rankin-Hill of the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Warren Perry and Dr. Michael Parks of Central Connecticut State University, and Dr. Alan Goodman of Hampshire College in Massachusetts.More recently, in the spring of 2013 a team of diagnostic imagining professors and students from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, studied the skeleton. The bones were X-rayed, given CT scans, and a 3-D printer will be used to make replicas of the bones. DNA analysis is currently underway, as well, according to the museum.So far, they’ve learned that Fortune, who was 50 to 60 years old when he died, owned a small house on the Porter’s land. He lived there with his wife Dinah and their three children, Jacob, Mira, and Roxa. According to the museum’s research, Fortune also had an older son, Africa.Early researchers said that Fortune was a strong, rugged man, who had suffered several injuries before his death, and speculated he worked on the Porter’s farm. A more recent analysis suggested Fortune was not an agricultural worker. Continuing studies may provide more definitive answers, but there may always be questions, as well.Two years after Fortune died, only Dinah and a young man named Luke were listed in the Porter’s household. The museum has searched for relatives, but hasn’t found anyone. They are hoping someone’s genealogical studies will lead them to Fortune.Deciding it was time for Fortune to be buriedIn 2003 the museum launched an exhibit, “Fortune’s Story: Larry’s Legacy.” They commissioned Marilyn Nelson, Connecticut’s Poet Laureate at the time, to write an elegy honoring Fortune, which she called,The Manumission Requiem. The Waterbury Symphony commissioned composer Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell to set it to music.In 2012, the Fortune’s Bones cantata was performed by the University of Maryland “by a full symphony, two choirs, seven soloists, and a chorus of African bells.” The community there raised the question of why Fortune had not been buried and the performance, as described on Dr. Barnwell’s website, was a way for the artists there, together, to “metaphorically set Fortune’s bones to rest.Back in Waterbury the committee was making the final decision to literally set the bones to rest.“We all agreed that it was time for him to be buried,” said Marie.”I think the committee and the museum made the right decision. We can now tell a real story about a real person, instead of a mythological skeleton.”Maxine Watts admits she had been a holdout for not burying Fortune because of how much the scientists have learned about his life and his death. With new advances in science taking place all the time, she said, she was optimistic about how much more might be learned in the future. But after work done this past spring at Quinnipiac University to create lasting records, she finally agreed that there was sufficient information to continue research after his burial.“Fortune’s talking now,” said Maxine. “Not Dr. Porter, and not Anderson’s History.A burial for Mr. FortuneThe burial date is set for Thursday, September 12, starting at 4 p.m. It will include the service at St. John’s, followed by burial at Riverside Cemetery, and a reception following at the Mattatuck Museum until 7:30 p.m. The public is invited.“Our theology is that by our baptism we are Mr. Fortune’s sisters and brothers in Christ, and we are burying him [as such],” said the Rev. Amy Welin of St. John’s. “We have the opportunity to address a wrong that was done … and to discern how this story invites us to change the way we live and interact with our neighbors.”As part of that, during the burial service she plans to replace the Prayers of Intercession with the Litany of Repentance, from Ash Wednesday. The Hon. Steven R. Mullins, a state politician and president of the Southern Connecticut Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians, will serve as an MC for the event. A number of speakers, including Maxine Watts and pastors of several historically Black churches in Waterbury, will offer remarks. The Governor’s Foot Guard will accompany the casket to the cemetery.Fortune’s burial in Riverside Cemetery would not have been possible at the time he died. In the 18th century, African Americans were buried in the “colored burial plot” of the old Grand Street Cemetery, which is now under the town library. St. John’s donated the burial plot and Alderson’s Funeral Homes, Inc., of Waterbury has donated the casket and the underground vault. Mr. Fortune’s earthly remains will take their rest among the pillars of 18th and 19th century Waterbury society.Maxine is pleased with the plans for the day. “I think it’s going to be a really incredible day and a great and fitting sendoff for Mr. Fortune, recognizing all he’s been through,” she said.The museum is working on a documentary and new resource material, and scientific research will continue using information now recorded. Although Maxine is glad they will continue to learn from science, she said that there are other questions that still need answers – such as, What was Fortune doing at that river? Why was the doctor there at the same time? And why did he have his medical instruments with him?“I’m not a detective,” she said, “but something is wrong in the story there.”While those parts of the story still trouble her, another part encourages her.“He proved a point,” she said. “African American slaves were not considered fully human, but isn’t it ironic that the doctors used his bones for human study? Underneath the skin, we’re all the same. Mr. Fortune proved it in death, even though he never consented to it.”— Karin Hamilton is the canon for mission communication and media for the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut.  Shirley Spangler says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Jimmie Griffin says: Ann Horn says: Laura Masterson says: Rector Bath, NC This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Smithfield, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Belleville, IL Rector Collierville, TN Rector Hopkinsville, KY Featured Events Connecticut: After 215 years, member of St. John’s Church to be buried November 3, 2013 at 2:16 pm I found this article about my home diocese uplifting.

Hooker deserves to be thrown out of the front row union for this lung-busting 100m sprint!

first_imgTuesday Feb 26, 2019 Hooker deserves to be thrown out of the front row union for this lung-busting 100m sprint! Round five of Major League Rugby in the USA served up it’s first ever draw in an exciting contest in Utah as the Warriors and the Glendale Raptors played a true game of two halves. The moment of the match came as part of Glendale’s comeback, and may well be a record breaker.ADVERTISEMENTIt’s not clear if there is actually a current record for the longest ever try scored by a hooker in professional rugby, but if it does exist, you can be sure that Glendale’s Chad Gough has broken it.With the Warriors on attack and deep in the Glendale 5m line, searching for more points to finish off the contest, a turnover gave replacement hooker Gough a chance to stretch his legs.What followed was an unbelievable piece of play, as he ran the length of the pitch for an incredible try.Gough was named Man of the Match for his effort, as the try in the 67th minute helped Glendale to get back into the game as they scored 21-straight points to claim a 26-26 draw after trailing 26-5.The defensive work by the Warriors winger, in particular, left much to be desired but the former University of Utah man threw two little shows of the ball and had the gas to outsprint everyone for a full 100 metres – no mean feat for a front rower.ADVERTISEMENTIt’s landed him in the MRL team of the week for round 5.MLR’s First XV of Week 5:Loosehead Prop (No. 1), Rob Brouwer, Toronto ArrowsHooker (No. 2), Chad Gough, Glendale RaptorsTighthead Prop (No. 3), Paddy Ryan, San Diego LegionLock (No. 4), Ben Mitchell, Austin EliteLock (No. 5), Brad Tucker, Seattle SeawolvesBlindside Flanker (No. 6), Kyle Sumsion, Rugby United New YorkOpenside Flanker (No. 7), Devin Short, San Diego LegionNo. 8, Ross Deacon, Rugby United New YorkScrum-half (No. 9), Nate Augspurger, San Diego LegionFly-half (No. 10), Sam Malcolm, Toronto ArrowsWing (No. 11), Malacchi Esdale, Houston SaberCatsInside Center (No. 12), Gannon Moore, Utah WarriorsOutside Center (No. 13), Dan Moor, Toronto ArrowsWing (No. 14), Brock Staller, Seattle SeawolvesFullback (No. 15), Mat Turner, Seattle SeawolvesRound 5 ResultsHouston 27 – Toronto 44Austin 17 – San Diego 45Utah 26 – Glendale 26Seattle 33 – New York 21Watch full highlights below, in a match that included some outstanding offloadsADVERTISEMENThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ewkspr6fmaI Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Shivkant Shukla (1976), the plea states that the burial of the darkest chapter in Indian democracy is yet to provide respite to the Petitioner who suffered atrocities at the hands of the authorities during the Emergency period. Drawn by Advocate Dr. Neela Gokhale and filed by Advocate-on-Record Anannya Ghosh, the plea avers that “the present petition is a plea for justice and restitution of a lifetime spent in utter misery and anguish on account of the atrocities suffered by the Petitioner, her deceases husband and her family”. As victims of the Emergency, the petition recounts that the then government authorities, in their bid to plunder businesses and homes of victims, targeted the Petitioner and her husband with unjustifiable and arbitrary detention orders, and consequently led to them fleeing the country. “His business was shut down, assets and valuables including immovable property was seized and appropriated. The Petitioner’s husband succumbed to the pressure and died. Since then the Petitioner has been single-handedly facing all proceedings initiated against her husband during the Emergency period, which were arbitrarily pursued”. Referring to the judgment of the Delhi High Court passed in December 2014 which ultimately quashed the proceedings against the deceased husband of the Petitioner, the plea then conveys that valuables worth crores of rupees from the flourishing business of the husband, which were seized, are yet to be restituted. Additionally, it was only vide order dated 28th July, 2020, that the High Court directed for payment of arrears of rent for one of the properties to the Petitioner and other legal heirs. However, it has been contended that other valuable movable properties have been siphoned away. “Needless to say, that the valuable movable properties have been siphoned away and illegally appropriated by many government authorities and private persons during the time of emergency. Ironically, the Petitioner’s son had the most unpleasant experience and was shocked to see few of the stolen pieces of his mother’s jewellery up for sale in New Delhi”. At her advanced age, the Petitioner has sought for the fulfilment of a simple desire to achieve closure to her trauma and receive an acknowledgement of her suffice. In light of this, the instant plea has been filed before the Supreme Court. The matter is likely to be listed on 7th December before a Bench headed by Justice SK Kaul.
