The jury is still out on whether a gambling crackdown ordered recently by Prime Minister Hun Sen was done for the good of the public or for personal gain, a civil society advocate said Monday. “We need more explanation from the government on whether the closures are in favor of an individual or the public,” said Seng Theary, executive director of the Center for Social Development, as a guest on “Hello VOA.” Hun Sen last month ordered the closure of the popular sports betting company CamboSix
• Best jumps horse in Europe runs in Champion Chase • Showers forecast after dry night at Cheltenham 9.30am Welcome back to the best live coverage of the Cheltenham Festival Good morning! It's day two of the Cheltenham Festival, the day we expect to see the best jumps horse in Europe when Master Minded tries to win his second Champion Chase. He's 1-3, which is a short price to be sure, but can he be beaten? If not, it's unfair of us to expect bookmakers to take bets at any price. As yesterday
Now, how do you think it might be possible to have sports betting that is in fact legal? It is, of course, as we know, one of those things that people have spent a great deal of time and effort trying to make illegal. And how can it be that betting on sports is in fact free? How can you do this and ... Well, the answer to both the free and the legal is contained in the same set up. What happens, what allows you to have free sports betting is this. At the beginning of the week you get given vi
From banning cell phones in cells to ending touch screen voting to regulating “violet acts,” the West Virginia Legislature has some interesting ideas.By now everyone knows about the ban on Barbie dolls that Democratic Delegate Jeff Eldridge of Big Ugly proposed.But there is other legislation, some of which may actually go somewhere.SB 460: “The purpose of this bill is to include telecommunications devices as contraband in jails, state correction facilities, juvenile facilities and juvenile deten
