However, it requires that all online players register in-person, either by travelling to a land-based casino or by registering via a licensee’s interactive platform while on premises.A licence fee of $1,000 is also proposed, before taxes on sports betting revenues.SB330 was passed by the Senate following its third reading on Monday (April 1), with 36 voting in favour and 14 against. It has now been transferred to the House and assigned to the Business and Labour Committee, with a hearing set to take place tomorrow (April 5).HB725, the Sports Wagering Lottery Amendment Act of 2019, aims to make the Montana Lottery the sole sports betting operator in the state. The lottery would be able to operate online and land-based offerings, although no tax rate is set out in the bill.The proposal was transferred to the upper house of the legislature after passing the House with 88 votes in favour, 10 against and two abstentions, and has been assigned to the Senate Business, Labor, and Economic Affairs Committee. It will be scrutinised at a hearing on April 10, alongside HB475, which also passed the House with a strong majority.HB475 was approved with 87 Representatives voting in favour, nine against and four abstentions. It only aims to legalise pari-mutuel wagering in Montana, which it proposes should be overseen by the state’s Board of Horse Racing.Licensed racetracks would be able to offer pari-mutuel wagering at premises, at off-track betting facilities and online. HB475 has also been assigned to the Senate Business, Labor, and Economic Affairs Committee.Each piece of legislation has just weeks to progress through the new chamber, with the legislative session ending on May 1. The Montana legislature will then not sit again until 2021. While the state was effectively given an exemption from the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, it did not use this to launch wagering before the act was struck down by the Supreme Court in May last year.Image: Sebastian Bergmann 4th April 2019 | By contenteditor Regions: US Montana AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Three sports bills progress in Montana A trio of bills that would regulate sports betting in Montana have progressed through the state legislature, with just weeks left of the state’s regular session.

April 28, 2021 Find out more News News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Help by sharing this information TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Follow the news on Turkey February 18, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three online journalists jailed in connection with Ergenekon investigation News Reporters Without Borders is disturbed to learn that an Istanbul court today ordered three online journalists detained on charges of “inciting hatred and hostility through the media,” membership of a “terrorist organization” and obtaining and publishing confidential state documents. They are facing possible sentences of more than 20 years in jail.They are Soner Yalçin, the owner of the Oda TV news website, Baris Pehlivan, the site’s editor, and Baris Terkoglu, one of its reporters. They were arrested when counter-terrorism police raided the website’s Istanbul headquarters on the orders of prosecutor Zekeriya Öz on 14 February.The “terrorist organization” referred to in the charges is Ergenekon, an alleged secret network of senior army officers, academics, businessmen and others who have been on trial since October 2008 on charges of plotting to use terrorist methods to overthrow Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government. Öz is the prosecutor in charge of the Ergenekon investigation.The homes of the three journalists were also searched on 14 February. A fourth Oda TV journalist, Ayhan Bozkurt, was arrested at the same time, but was released yesterday.The searches and arrests were carried out after Oda TV questioned some of the judicial procedures use in the Ergenekon investigation and trial. Pehlivan was already prosecuted on a charge of “inciting hatred and hostility” in November 2008 after he invited the author of a book about torture to be interviewed by the TV station CNN Türk. He was acquitted.During a CNN Türk programme following the searches, the head of the Istanbul bar association, Ümit Kocasakal, said the warrant used did not mention that the homes to be searched belonged to journalists. This was violation of Turkish legal procedure, he said.Reporters Without Borders urges the judicial authorities handling this case to adhere strictly to the law. Journalists must be completely free to report information and express their opinions, even on such sensitive issues as the Ergenekon investigation. The justice system must respect the confidentiality of their sources, and thereby help ensure media freedom and independence.Turkey is ranked 138th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists News April 22, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Detained US journalist used in Iranian power struggle March 18, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa June 9, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the way rival government factions in Iran are using the case of detained Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian for political purposes in an unrelenting struggle for power. Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Iran RSF_en IranMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 News Receive email alerts Rezaian, who completes his ninth month in detention today, is to face trial on several charges including spying, his lawyer reported two days ago. He has US and Iranian dual nationality.Arrested in a completely illegal manner by Revolutionary Guards on 22 July 2014, Rezaian has been held ever since in the security wing of Tehran’s Evin prison. Like other detained journalists, he has been subjected to to a greal of a pressure, including long spells of solitary confinement, in order to extract a confession for use in a trial.His lawyer, Leila Ahsan, told Agence France-Presse on 20 April that he is accused of spying, cooperating with hostile governments, gathering confidential information and anti-government propaganda. She added that her meeting with Rezaian on 20 April was their first since she took the case at the start of March.Farsnews, a news agency linked to the Revolutionary Guards, already reported on 12 April, a week before her announcement, that Rezaian woud be tried for “selling business and industrial information to the CIA.”Responding to the report the same day, Washington Post editor Martin Baron described the allegation as absurd and condemned the fact that Rezaian had been denied any legal advice for the past nine months.Vatan-é Emrooz, an extremist daily that supports the Revolutionary Guards and former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, ran a front-page story on 18 April that was headlined “Unveiling Jason’s secrets.” It accused Rezaian of infiltrating the government and various institutions to uncover the methods used by Iran to circumvent international sactions.“Iranian opponents of the nuclear accord with the United States and better relations with the international community have been referring to the Rezaian case since 3 April, and this is no coincidence because Rezaian was arrested with the aim of being used in this all-out war betweeen rival ruling factions,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran/Afghanistan desk.“Unfortunately, the governments led by Barack Obama and Hassan Rouhani let slip an opportunity to include human rights and the release of journalists as one of the priorities in their talks. We call for the immediate release of Jason Rezaian and all the other detained journalists and bloggers.”Revolutionary Guards in plain clothes arrested Rezaian at his Tehran home on 22 July along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi – a journalist working for The National, a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates – and two other US citizens. Their apartment was searched and ransacked, and all computers and electronic devices were seized. The two other US citizens were released provisionally a month later. After payment of a large sum in bail, Salehi was freed provisionally on 4 October pending trial.Ever since his arrest, Rezaian’s family in the United States has been pressing the Obama administration to make his release a priority.In a statement issued on 2 April, Rezaian’s brother, Ali, said: “Now that the framework agreement is in place, we call on the Iranian leadership to review the evidence their underlings claim to have against Jason.”More than 400,000 people have so far signed a petition for Rezaian’s release that Reporters Without Borders has relayed. Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire joined a dozen well-known media figures, including Noam Chomsky, Anderson Cooper, Christiane Amanpour, Marty Baron and National Press Club president John Hughes, in writing to Iranian judicial system chief Sadegh Amoli Larijani requesting Rezaian’s immediate release.Rezaian is not the only information provider with dual citizenship currently held in Iran. A Tehran court sentenced Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, who has dual Iranian and British citizenship, on 27 May 2014 to 20 years in prison, a sentence that was reduced to five years at the start of this month. Farideh Shahgholi, who has dual Iranian and German citizenship, is serving a three-year jail term. Both were arrested in connection with their activities on Facebook and other social networks.President Obama half-heartedly requested Rezaian’s release in his Iranian New Year greeting on 20 March. The British and German authorities have not so far issued any official statement about the detention of their citizens. It is time the international community seriously tackled the Iranian authorities about respect for fundamental rights and the release of detained journalists and online activists.Iran is ranked 173rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Local NewsBusiness Pinterest Facebook TAGS Facebook Twitter Twitter IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced their new proprietary Razer™ HyperPolling Technology, debuting in the new Razer Viper 8K Hz mouse, the world’s first esports gaming mouse with true 8000Hz Polling rate. Razer HyperPolling Technology surpasses the industry-standard 1000Hz polling rate with a true 8000Hz polling rate for performance at the speed of thought, ushering in a new era of gaming responsiveness, speed, and reliability. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210128005186/en/ The Viper 8K is the world’s fastest esports gaming mouse with the highest polling rate and all of Razer’s best technology innovations to achieve superior performance. (Photo: Business Wire) Currently, most top gaming mice support polling rates of up to 1000Hz, and whilst manufacturers have focused on making mice more accurate and responsive, little consideration has been given to the frequency with which click and positional data is transmitted to the PC. With faster PCs and higher refresh rate monitors, higher polling rates can eliminate annoying micro-stutters, significantly improving gameplay performance when a fraction of a second can be the difference between winning or losing. “Latency is a very important part of gameplay that significantly affects the overall gaming experience – and yet, it is overlooked by many companies that focused for too long on increasing DPI. Unlike DPI, lower latency benefits everyone from casual to professional players by shaving off important milliseconds from the overall reaction time,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit. “During our testing and development process with a large pool of competitive players and mouse enthusiasts, many reported significantly smoother and more responsive input when using the HyperPolling Technology featured in the new Viper 8K Hz esports gaming mouse.” At least 8x faster – the science behind its speed Polling rate is the frequency at which a device reports data to the PC, with an industry standard of up to 1000Hz (1000 times a second). Razer HyperPolling Technology utilizes a high-speed USB microcontroller to surpass this standard with a true polling rate of 8000Hz. This allows the Viper 8K Hz to send up to eight times more data each second, effectively reducing input delay from 1ms to just 1/8th of a millisecond. Razer HyperPolling Technology can send more up-to-date data to better match a monitor’s faster refresh rate. As a result, the delay between the latest report and the monitor’s frame rendering is much less when compared to that of a 1000Hz polling rate, resulting in smoother and more up-to-date cursor positions. Higher polling rates can reduce the input delay, minimizing micro-stutters and sudden jumps in the cursor position, resulting in smooth, accurate cursor movement on the screen. Razer HyperPolling Technology not only provides the fastest click latency, but also keeps the click-to-click variance to an absolute minimum – making it superior to other leading gaming technologies. “This technology is perfect for games that require high precision and responsiveness like CS:GO,” said Tarik “tarik” Celik, CS:GO star of Evil Geniuses. Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov from Dota2 team Alliance agreed, saying, “I’d instantly tell the difference between 1000Hz and 8000Hz.” Outpace the competition with the Viper 8K Hz The Viper 8K Hz is the first Razer peripheral to feature Razer HyperPolling Technology, marrying 3 key innovations in one device to create the world’s fastest competitive gaming mouse. The 2nd-gen Razer Optical Mouse Switches and Razer Focus+ Optical Sensor, combined with Razer HyperPolling Technology, delivers a gaming mouse with unparalleled speed, precision, and responsiveness. The 2nd-gen Razer Optical Mouse Switches have been improved with greater tactile feedback, making each click feel and sound more satisfying than before. Eliminating the need for debounce delay used in traditional mechanical switches, this lightning-fast actuation is complemented by HyperPolling Technology to provide the lowest input latency, helping gamers achieve those pro-levels of reaction times. Ultra-fast and durable, the 2nd-gen Razer Optical Mouse Switches are built to last for 70 million clicks. The Razer Focus+ Optical Sensor has an industry-leading 99.6% resolution accuracy, so even the finest movements are tracked with consistency. With the sensor’s unique intelligent functions, combined with Razer HyperPolling Technology, gamers will experience ultra-smooth, stutter-free cursor tracking for an acute level of precision and those crucial game-winning headshots. First-class performance. Down to every last detail. This groundbreaking performance and technology is packed into a solid, ambidextrous chassis, weighing just 71 grams. The Viper 8K Hz is fitted with 100% PTFE mouse feet for smoother glides, and features Razer’s snag-free SpeedFlex Cable to ensure minimal drag for fluid swipes. Through Razer Synapse 3, gamers can rebind the eight programmable buttons, assign macros or secondary functions, and save all profile configurations to the Viper 8K Hz ’s advanced on-board memory. With storage for up to five on-board memory profiles, users enjoy instant access to their personal settings wherever they are. A stark upgrade over its predecessor, the Viper 8K Hz incorporates most of Razer’s technology innovations to achieve a level of performance bar none.
