“We feel the surge. For me, it’s been a long time coming,” Klobuchar said in Keene.Beyond New Hampshire, she faces significant challenges in a party uncertain about what kind of candidate it wants to face Republican President Donald Trump in November – a moderate who can appeal to the middle or a progressive who excites the party’s base.In a Reuters/Ipsos national poll released on Monday, Klobuchar garnered only 3% support – well behind Sanders at 20%, Biden at 17%, Bloomberg at 15% and several others.Klobuchar said her message about her appeal to moderates, independents and disaffected Republicans was beginning to sink in. At each campaign stop, she promised to win back Midwestern and rural voters, implying the party’s progressives like Sanders and Warren could not.Growing CrowdsKlobuchar pulled in her biggest New Hampshire crowd of 1,100 on Sunday in Nashua. Her campaign said she had raised more than $3 million online since the debate.In the two new state polls on Monday, she moved ahead of Biden, the former US vice president, and Warren, a senator from neighboring Massachusetts who was once considered a front-runner in New Hampshire.A Boston Globe poll, conducted with Suffolk University and WBZ-TV, showed Klobuchar with 14% support, just 5 percentage points behind Buttigieg at 19%. Sanders led with 27%.Ira Adler, 58, a FedEx courier who lives in Nashua, said he was leaning toward Buttigieg before the debate but was now leaning toward Klobuchar.”She has done really well on the debate stage. She is strong and tough,” Adler said. “I think she could stand up to Trump.”Klobuchar rarely mentions her Democratic rivals on the campaign trail, sticking to a folksy stump speech filled with wisecracks, biography and pledges to lower pharmaceutical costs, improve infrastructure and increase funding for treatment of drug addiction and mental health.At a lunch in Nashua, however, Klobuchar reminded the crowd she was the only one to raise her hand in Friday night’s debate when moderators asked if the candidates were concerned about a democratic socialist – Sanders – leading the ticket.Klobuchar cited her objection to the proposals by Sanders and Warren to provide free public college tuition. She prefers to focus on promoting two-year and apprenticeship education programs “instead of using taxpayer money to send wealthy kids to college.””We’re not going to have a shortage of sports marketing degrees,” Klobuchar said. “We’re going to have a shortage of plumbers.”Liz Racioppi, 66, a small-business owner in Nashua, said the significant number of undecided voters in New Hampshire – some polls put it at more than one-third – gave Klobuchar a chance for a good showing.”She’s been doing a slow rise, but a lot more people are starting to listen to her now,” she said. A Klobuchar surge would reshape the race. With the campaigns of moderate Joe Biden and progressive Elizabeth Warren struggling, it would put her in line to battle rival Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana – and eventually billionaire former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg – for leadership of the party’s centrists in their fight against progressive standard-bearer Bernie Sanders.”Amy is a candidate who can win big, and we are the ones who are going to launch her,” New Hampshire state Senator Jeanne Dietsch told supporters at a get-out-the-vote rally on Monday in Keene.Klobuchar, 59, has drawn bigger crowds and more campaign cash after a strong performance in last week’s New Hampshire debate, where she attacked the 38-year-old Buttigieg for his lack of political experience and his criticism of Washington insiders. She also detailed her history of winning races in conservative or battleground areas, and showed her flair for making her point with humor.But Klobuchar said the roots of the renaissance were in her work in the state. She has visited New Hampshire 23 times since she jumped in the race a year ago and has been endorsed by leading state papers including the Manchester Union Leader and Keene Sentinel. US Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar’s poll numbers are rising, her crowds are building and she says it is finally her time.Voters in New Hampshire will decide on Tuesday if she is right.Klobuchar, a moderate US senator from Minnesota who has been stuck in the middle of the crowded Democratic presidential pack, rose to third place in New Hampshire in a pair of opinion polls released on Monday, the day before the state’s vital primary.

The National Federation of Trade Unions (KSPN) has responded to an accusation that the tripartite team formed by the government has had little impact on the formulation of the omnibus bill on job creation, calling the claim untrue and degrading.The response was directed at Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI) president Said Iqbal, who previously said that a team formed by the House of Representatives to discuss the bill was ‘stronger’ and had contributed more than the tripartite team.Said claimed on Tuesday that the tripartite team acted merely as a “rubber stamp” body and a “tool of legitimacy” for the government, and that it had not provided any solutions or aspirations regarding the stipulations in the bill that concern labor law. KSPN chairman Ristadi said the tripartite team had worked for two weeks to discuss the labor cluster article by article and had published its results transparently.Read also: House, unions team up to discuss labor provisions in omnibus bill on job creation“[The discussion] was so intense that one chapter could take half a day. That proves that the tripartite team is not just a rubber stamp body saying ‘Yes, boss!’, let alone that it is just for show,” Ristadi said in a statement on Thursday.The tripartite team includes the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) and the Indonesian Employers Association (Apindo) as well as trade unions. Ristadi said the team represented 75 percent of the total labor force from all trade unions.Ristadi argued that the omnibus bill was formulated by both the government and the House, so that the team formed by one of them was just as important as the one formed by the other.He said the aspirations of the two teams might not be very different but he hoped the House would take into account the tripartite team’s working results as an important consideration in the bill’s deliberation.Topics :
Similar scenes also occurred in Bandung, West Java, on Tuesday where hundreds of people staged a protest in front of the West Java Legislative Council (DPRD) office.Chaos broke out as protesters managed to knock down the office’s front gate and throw stones at the police, who responded with water cannon and tear gas.Thousands of workers and students across the country have decided to carry on with the protests against the contentious law, despite many arrests.Scores of protesters from Samarinda and Kutai Kertanegara in East Kalimantan blocked Samarinda’s main thoroughfare, the Lembuswana intersection, on Wednesday, forcing authorities to divert traffic. Protests over the past few days against the recently passed Job Creation Law have turned violent with clashes between protestors and the police in several regions.When police attempted to disperse a demonstration on Monday held by hundreds of university students in an industrial area in Cikarang, West Java, the students, mostly from nearby Pelita Bangsa University purportedly struck back using stones and bamboo sticks, tribunnews.com reported.Cikarang Police chief Adj. Comr. Sukadi said the police had not granted permission for any mass rallies because of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. “But they opted to carry on with the protest, thus [the clash happened]”. Rally participants, comprising workers and students from at least eight universities in the two cities, called on the government to revoke and reevaluate the law.A similar mass demonstration was held in Pasar Rebo, East Jakarta. Hundreds of students took to the street to burn tires and wave banners expressing opposition to the law.The protests were a part of a three-day national strike against the Job Creation Law, which started on Tuesday.At least nine people were arrested during Tuesday’s protest in Bandung for allegedly attacking police personnel.“We’ve arrested nine people, in total, from yesterday’s incident. They are all students,” West Java Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Erdi A. Chaniago told kompas.com on Wednesday. Fourteen people have also been detained by the Banten Police following a similar protest on Tuesday. “They threw stones at our personnel when asked to bring the rally to an end,” Banten Police chief Insp. Gen. Fiandar said.Seventeen Manado State University students were also arrested in Manado, North Sulawesi, on Wednesday, while staging a protest against the Job Creation Law on campus grounds.From The Jakarta Post’s observations, a clash broke out when the Minahasa Police barred students from leaving their campus. The police then appeared to take several of the students into custody.Minahasa Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Denny Situmorang, however, claimed that no such clash occurred and that the students were not actually arrested.“The 17 students were not arrested, it’s just part of Operation Yustisi,” Denny said, referring to an ongoing joint National Police-Indonesian Military (TNI) operation aimed at monitoring and disciplining the public in relation to health protocols. “They have all been let go.”The House of Representatives and the government passed the contentious omnibus bill on job creation into law on Monday, sooner that its original plan to pass the bill on Thursday.Despite mounting opposition over fears that it will negatively impact the environment and labor rights, the government has insisted that the law is necessary to improve bureaucratic efficiency and to boost business and investment.

Adama Traore came off the bench to inspire Wolverhampton Wanderers to a 2-0 win at West Ham United on Saturday.It was an outcome that presented a significant result at both ends of the 2019/2020 English Premier League table. The quicksilver Spanish winger was perhaps surprisingly left on the bench for 64 minutes but his introduction enlivened an otherwise humdrum encounter at an empty London Stadium.Traore’s surging run and sublime cross was perfect for Raul Jimenez to head powerfully home in the 73rd minute.Traore was then involved again in the move which ended with fellow substitute Pedro Neto firing home a sensational left-footed volley to seal the win.It lifted Wolves into sixth place, level on 46 points with fifth-placed Manchester United.Defeat for West Ham, their fourth in their last five Premier League games, left them in 17th spot, ahead of Bournemouth, who faced Crystal Palace later on Saturday, on goal difference. West Ham worked hard to match Wolves but struggled to create much, apart from a glorious early chance for Pablo Fornals who lashed a shot wildly high and wide.The home side must have feared the arrival of Traore from the bench and so it proved as he provided the spark to earn Wolves an important win in their quest for Europe.West Ham’s left-back Aaron Cresswell is no slouch but he could get nowhere near Traore who powered past him before clipping over a cross for Jimenez.The goal helped the Mexican to chalk up his 14th goal of the season, nine of them assisted by Traore.Traore then showed some fancy footwork before passing to Matt Doherty whose cross was dispatched in style by Neto. No wonder Traore was named man of the match for his 25-minute cameo appearance.“It’s about using the substitutes at the right moments,” Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo later said.“We needed this win to feel that we are really back. We will never get used to playing without fans. Let’s hope and pray we get a vaccine or something so we can be together again.”With derbies against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea looming, West Ham manager David Moyes knows these are critical times for the club.RelatedPosts Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp EPL: Newcastle hammer West Ham away “I thought we limited a very good team but the difference was when Traore came on,” Moyes said.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Adama TraoreDavid MoyesPedro NetoRaul JinenezWest Ham UnitedWolverhampton Wanderers

USC moved on to defeat No. 15 Loyola Marymount in its second match Saturday. The Trojans leaped to a 3-0 lead over the Lions right out of the gate, and they kept their scoring momentum throughout the match. Junior utility Maud Megens and freshman driver Alejandra Anzar each had hat tricks, and eight other scoring Trojans contributed to the 16-5 victory. The Trojans remain at home this week to match up against the Chinese International Team for the second time this season in an exhibition game Tuesday at 5 p.m. They will then host Indiana for a conference match Saturday at 4 p.m. The Hoosiers are new to the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference. Longan said the Trojans will focus on game fundamentals moving forward. Four games in two days can be a daunting task for some teams, but not the Trojans, who swept their competition throughout the weekend with ease. On Sunday, the Trojans moved on to the semifinal match against No. 11 Michigan, winning 10-3 for their second victory over the Wolverines this season. Michigan kept the Trojans in check early, tying the score at 2-2 to start the match. USC allowed Michigan only one more goal in the third period, shutting them out in both the second and fourth periods. Megens led the Trojans offensively with 4 goals, and senior goalie Amanda Longan anchored the defense with 14 saves. Longan said the team could have been more focused defensively against the Wolverines. Sophomore driver Paige Hauschild’s 3 goals against No. 3 UCLA helped USC claim the Triton Invitational title. (Ling Luo/Daily Trojan) The No. 1 women’s water polo team won its sixth straight Triton Invitational title this weekend in La Jolla. “I think our awareness of when to help and when to switch defensively was a little delayed, so the faster that happens, the faster we can recover from mistakes,” she said. In its final match of the weekend, USC advanced to the championship game against undefeated crosstown rival No. 3 UCLA. The Trojans shut out the Bruins in the first half, bringing the score to 6-0. Longan had 11 saves for the match, while sophomore driver Paige Hauschild and junior driver Denise Mammolito netted 3 goals each to lead the offense. UCLA never came close to the Trojans, who finished with a decisive 10-3 victory to claim the tournament title. USC will host both teams at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center this week. “If everybody has those fundamentals to go in and be able to play any role, then we’re just a lot more well-rounded and better off,” Longan said. “So I think for us the focus on the fundamentals and how we defend one-on-one and how we contribute to the offense is something we talk about all the time, and just being a better adjusting team.” The Trojans took down Pomona-Pitzer 15-4 Saturday to kick off the weekend. Eleven Trojans scored in the victory over the Sagehens, and USC allowed no goals in the entire first half of the game — it entered the third period up 12-0. The Sagehens mustered some offense in the second half, but USC’s early lead allowed it to take the game easily. “I think offensively we were very well-rounded shooting-wise,” Longan said. “We have a lot of freshmen that actually play this year that are brand new, some of them just came this semester. What’s great is that in your first year, you’re usually a little timid to try things or offensively you just become a little bit more timid, but everybody had a presence shooting-wise.” Throughout the weekend, the Trojans spread their scoring among many players. “I’ve found that if you actually put in the work to prepare, and during the week you think about who you’re going to match up against, then you’re a lot more confident and mentally prepared when you go into the weekend and playing four games doesn’t seem as bad,” Longan said.

According to reports, Kings were sold for a then-record valuation of $535m to Randive, who envisioned a new area of rebuilding the franchise. Shaq, who dashed the Kings’ championship hopes for three straight years, acquired a minority share in the team and called the team ‘Shaqramento Kings’. Head coach a former LakerKings’ head coach Luke Walton is a former Laker. He played 10 seasons in the NBA as a forward, winning two championship rings with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Share SBC’s Year In Review: March 2019’s big betting news December 23, 2019 Share Submit Related Articles StumbleUpon David Webb, BetConstruct: Why meeting new regulations is the industry’s big challenge for 2019 April 4, 2019 SBC Charity Boxing Championship packs a punch for Oliver’s Wish Foundation January 20, 2020 Secure Trading is sponsoring Betting on Football 2017, the fourth edition of the largest international football and betting trade conference at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge.Ahead of the 3-5 May event, we spoke to Secure Trading Head of International Gaming Bryan Blake about why football is such an attractive sport for betting, how the market is changing from a consumer perspective and how betting and football stakeholders can work more effectively together.SBC: Why is football such an attractive sport for betting?BB: Football is an extremely popular sport worldwide, which is very easy to follow and with rules that are almost universally known and understood. Without the need to research and acquire intimate knowledge of the sport, it’s an easy game to bet on, and there are a multitude of options depending on how into it you are and how much knowledge you have. You can simply bet on your team, a side that catches your interest, or any number of combination of players, goals or outcomes. This, combined with the feeling that you are yourself competing against a million fans around the world, makes it exceptionally engaging and exciting for punters. SBC: From a consumer perspective, how is football betting changing?BB: Developments in technology have made real-time and live betting far easier, fairer and more accessible, which has given more choice and control to the consumer. For example, there are many more options for betting during the game today than there were a couple of years ago. With the talk of Television Match Official (TMO) or video refereeing coming into play in football, digital will be brought ever closer to the gameplay. As a result, I expect the trend of increasing choice to continue, as audiences in-turn get that bit closer to the game.SBC: How can betting & football stakeholders work better and more effectively together?BB: Within the industry, there is room for those in betting and those on the pitch to work better together. Match fixing is just one example of where there needs to be more effort to retain integrity both within the betting companies and the clubs themselves. Player awareness needs to be raised to the issue, and the wide-ranging consequences to foul-play.SBC: What new technology do you feel will have the biggest impact on football betting?BB: Once implemented, television monitoring is really going to have an effect on game decisions, and therefore on the betting industry. The referee’s initial response will no longer play such a key role, with TMO being deployed to override a wrong decision. This will help make results fairer – which is important for those with money riding on a game. Only time will tell, however, exactly the effect this will have on the popularity of football betting.SBC: What key agenda, debate or discussion do you want to hear at BOFCON 2017?BB: Focusing on the payments side of sports betting, I’m interested to hear how companies are preparing for the fourth Anti-Money Laundering (4 MLD) legislation this year. This directive is set to drastically change the face of the betting industry by expanding the coverage of regulations to all gaming operators, not just casino – with specific reference to online gambling. Non-compliance will come at a hefty price – with large fines already laid out, as well as the threat of companies losing their operating licence for large offences, not to mention the reputation damage. If they haven’t already, operators taking online payments across the EU need to take urgent steps now to comply – specifically by putting in place the appropriate Know Your Customer (KYC) measures and a Money Laundering /Terrorism Financing (ML/TF) risk assessment in place. At Secure Trading, we are interested to see how the industry is responding at the show.
