30th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Topics: Finance Lottery This growth was driven by Sports Lottery sales, which grew 10.5% to CNY21.53bn, offsetting a 9.3% drop in the Welfare Lottery’s contribution, to CNY13.25bn. Regions: China This represented almost double sports betting sales – the second most popular vertical, despite only being offered via the Sports Lottery – which grew only marginally to CNY10.24bn. China’s Ministry of Finance reported its second consecutive month of year-on-year growth in lottery sales for August, thanks to growth across digital lottery, betting and instant win games. Total sales for the country’s Welfare and Sports Lotteries grew 2.0% year-on-year to CNY34.78bn (£4.32bn/€4.75bn/$5.55bn) in August, but this was still below July’s sales of CNY36.15bn.

While the market then reported month-on-month improvements, it was not until July that it posted year-on-year increases in sales. Keno also saw sales decline across both lotteries, falling 15.6% year-on-year to CNY12.9m. August’s sales now represent the highest monthly total of a year in which the Chinese lottery market has been significantly disrupted by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which resulted in sales effectively being wiped out in February. As result revenue for the year to date remains far behind 2019 levels. Total sales for the eight months to 31 August stand at CNY194.83bn, down 30.3% year-on-year. Instant win games, meanwhile, were up 18.2% to CNY2.59bn, thanks to a 22.6% rise in Welfare Lottery instant sales, and a 14.1% rise in the Sports Lottery contribution. This growth was offset by the Welfare Lottery’s video lottery sales collapsing, with no tickets sold during August. Lottery China lottery sales up 2.0% in August Email Address

The campaign includes a website allowing visitors to connect directly with children living in the Kroo Bay community, a slum in Sierra Leone.The website, designed by Rufus Leonard, uses Quicktime VR and Flash Panorama to create “an immersive brand experience”, allowing the visitor to navigate their way around the slum and meeting the people who live there.Built on a rubbish dump on the banks of the filthy ‘Crocodile River’ in Freetown, Kroo Bay is, according to SCF, “one of the toughest places in the world for a child to survive”. One in four children die there before their fifth birthday.SCF aims to highlight that it is simple for families in the UK to make a difference. Over time, the website will enable the public to watch the changes their donations have made for the residents of Kroo Bay happening on their computer screens.The charity’s campaign offers seven simple solutions to save a life, each costing between £1 and £5.The TV advertising, created by Dan Norris and Ray Shaughnessy at Wieden + Kennedy will reach over 3 million people. The 30-second TV advert ‘Clever’, which aired on 11 Feb, will be followed on 18 February by ‘If’. Both were directed and animated by Simon Robson. Award-winning actor Thomas Turgoose has lent his voice to the campaign.The direct response campaign created by Andy Todd and Paul Snoxell at Partners Andrews Aldridge begins on the 18 February with a 60″ and 30″ TV commercial, airing on satellite stations such as ITV2, Living, UK Style, Cartoon and Trouble.The animated style of the advert is also used in a doordrop and press insert media that will target the family market through publications such as the Radio Times, Big Issue and various national press supplements.Mobile agency Incentivated is providing the technology to allow families to join the campaign and take actions such as make text donations or sign a petition.The text campaign will be promoted via press, cinema, outdoor and experiential media, and signage in Save the Children shop fronts. All advertising has been negotiated by media agency CARAT.Joe Barrell, Head of Communications at Save the Children, said: “This is just the start of a three-year campaign to save children’s lives. We will be using technology allowing families to get involved and show the world just how simple it is to save a child’s life.”www.savethechildren.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Individual giving Howard Lake | 18 February 2008 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

An overwhelming majority of those who provided feedback during the public comment period voiced support for the trait technology.

The Matter has now been posted for further hearing on Thursday (19th November).Background of the CaseEarlier, on Monday (12th October) the Mathura District Court had summoned all Court records with respect to the Shrikrishna Janam Bhoomi Case. Thereafter, the Court of District Judge had posted the matter for hearing on Friday (October 16, 2020) i.e., today.Notably, this civil appeal, which has now been admitted, was preferred by ‘Bhagwan Srikrishna Virjman’, through next friend Ranjana Agnihotri, ‘Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi’—the place of birth of Lord Shree Krishna and six devotees.The Appellants have submitted in the civil appeal that the Civil Judge was wrong in dismissing their suit inasmuch as they are worshippers of Lord Shri Krishna and they have the right to assert their right to religion guaranteed by Article 25 of the Constitution to have Darshan and perform puja at the actual birth of place of Lord Krishna which is at present beneath the structure illegally raised by Muslims.”It is the right and duty of the worshippers to make every endeavour to bring back the lost property of the deity and to take every step for the safety and proper management of the temple and the deities property,” it has been submitted in the Civil Appeal.Notably, the appeal avers that the Civil judge (in its 30th September order) mentioned that compromise had been entered into between Trust Masjid Idgah and Krishna Janamasthan Trust, whereas the Plaintiffs had clearly stated in the plaint that the compromise was made between Shri Krishna Janmsthan Sewa Sangh and Trust Masjid Idgah; and Shri Krishna Janmasthan Trust was not a party to the compromise and it had not filed the suit.Therefore, it has also been alleged in the civil appeal that the impugned judgment is stated to be based upon the wrong assumption of fact and suffering from non-application of mind.The appeal, which has now been admitted by the District Court, Mathura was filed through Advocates Hari Shankar Jain, Vishnu Shankar Jain & Pankaj Kumar Verma.Civil Judge’s Order delivered on 30th SeptemberThe Civil Court, while dismissing the suit, had observed that such type of suits is instituted through Shebait, however, the court had noted that the present suit had not been instituted through Shebait.The Court had noted that Shree Krishna is considered to be the Avtar of Lord Vishnu, and there are infinite number devotes of Shree Krishna in the whole world.Importantly, the Court had further opined that if each and every devotee is allowed to institute such suits, it would Jeopardize the Judicial and Social System.The Court had remarked that to allow the plaintiffs to institute the suit, on the basis of they being the devotees, isn’t Justified and is legally untenable and the institution of the suit by the devotees is not allowed in the eyes of Law.Noting the aforesaid, the Court had come to the conclusion that the plaintiffs in the present matter did not have the right to sue and so there was no base to register the case and hence it deserved dismissal.Averments in the appealDisputing this reasoning of the Court, the Appellants in their appeal have submitted that a suit cannot be rejected on the ground that several others may also approach the court.They pointed out that the Court below “failed to take notice of the provision of the order 1 rule 8 CPC and that the court in the appropriate case has the power to treat any suit as representative suit when the interest of numerous persons are involved.” (emphasis supplied)Significantly, the Civil Court had also remarked that the Appellants herein do not have a ‘Right to sue’.Challenging this finding, in the appeal it has been submitted,”The question regarding the right to sue cannot be decided in a summary manner. At the time of admission of suit the Court cannot decide the suit suo moto the question of the right to sue. Even the court below did not call upon the counsel for the plaintiffs to address on the point of locus standi.”Plaintiffs before the Court and The disputeThe first Petitioner, i.e. the deity himself was described as minor, juristic person who can sue and be sued through shebait and in his absence through next friend.The second plaintiff was ‘Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi’—the place of birth of Lord Shree Krishna, which as per the Plaintiffs has “special significance” in religious scriptures as well as under Hindu law.The other plaintiffs were the devotees.It was alleged that in 1968, the Society Shree Krishna Janamasthan Seva Sangh entered into a compromise with the Committee of Management of Trust Masjid Idgah, conceding a considerable portion of property belonging to the deity to the latter.Disputing the legality of this compromise, the Plaintiffs had submitted:”That it is relevant to mention that Shree Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh has no proprietary or ownership right in the property of Katra Keshavdev which stood vested in the deity and the Trust.”It was further contended:”The original karagar i.e. the birthplace of Lord Krishna lies beneath the construction raised by the Committee of Management i.e. Trust Masjid Idgah. The true fact will come out before the Court after excavation.” Next Story

Shawali Khan vs. The State of Maharashtra & anr will be applicable in such a scenario.Full bench of Justice KK Tated, Justice GS Kulkarni and Justice NR Borkar were hearing a writ petition filed by one Pintu Sonale, after the same was placed before them following an order passed by the division bench headed by Justice SS Shinde seeking authoritative settlement of the issue whether a prisoner convicted under POCSO Act, is eligible to be released on emergency (Covid-19) parole in terms of Rule 19 (1) (C) of the Maharashtra Prison (Furlough and Parole) Rules.As per the said division bench, there were conflicting opinions given in two different judgments on this particular question of law. In Sardar s/o. Shawali Khan, the petitioner who was convicted for offences under the provisions of the Terrorists and Disruptive Activities Act sought benefit of emergency parole as per May 8 notification. Court had noted in the said judgment-“Though specifically TADA is not mentioned in the notification, the Special Acts are mentioned in minutes of a meeting of the High Power Committee, dated 10th May, 2020. In the amendment to the Rule 4 of the Rules, in clause No.12, it is mentioned that prisoners, who are considered dangerous or have been involved in serious prison violence and who are convicted under Special Acts like Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985 (NDPS), rape, etc. are not entitled to get the beneft of Rule 4, which needs to be read with Rule 19 and it can be said that in Rule 4, initially there was no category like pandemic situation created by COVID-19 virus. Only due to Government Notification dated 8 th May, 2020, the prisoners can be considered for giving them emergency parole and such parole is subject to the condition mentioned in the notification itself. In view of this circumstance and aforesaid provisions, it cannot be said that vested right is given to the prisoners to get parole and some definite exceptions are created by the State. The words used in proviso are ” like and etc.”.Thus, the list of Special Acts given in the notification is not exhaustive and other special enactments which are similar in nature need to be considered and the authority has the power to say that a TADA convict is also not entitled to get the benefit of Government Notification dated 8th May, 2020. For all these reasons, this Court holds that there is no need to interfere in the order made by the respondent. In the result, both the petitions stand dismissed.”Petitioner’s lawyer Advocate Rupesh Jaiswal had argued that since his client is not convicted under the provisions of MCOC, PMLA, MPID, NDPS, UAPA, the condition precedent to release on emergency parole as classified by the State High Powered Committee is satisfied.The division bench had concluded that the decision in Vijendra Malaram Ranwa vs. State of Maharashtra & anr was in conflict with the decision in and Sardar s/o. Shawali Khan which dealt with offences punishable under TADA.Finally, the full bench held that the decision in Sardar s/o. Shawali Khan vs. The State of Maharashtra & anr is the correct interpretation and directed the matter to be listed before the same division bench.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story
