The revelation came in the 2018 ‘State of the States: The AGA Survey of the Commercial Casino Industry’, the organisation’s flagship publication that analyses the commercial casino market across 24 states. Commercial gaming generated a collective $40.28bn (£31.18bn/€34.71bn) in revenue during 2017, with states taking in a total of $9.23bn in revenue from commercial gaming taxes alone. In addition, 20 commercial casino states experienced revenue increases in 2017, which the AGA said reflects “strong macroeconomic trends and sustained job growth in most parts of the country”. The AGA estimates that the overall US casino industry is worth around $261bn and employs approximately 1.8 million people nationwide. Stacy Papadopoulos, interim chief executive of the AGA, said: “This year’s report demonstrates the commercial gaming industry’s role as a job creator and revenue generator in states across the country, and we’re proud of the industry’s steady growth over the past few years.” Casino gaming could be set for a further boost with more punters expected to visit gambling facilities to place sports bets, after the Supreme Court ruled to overturn PASPA earlier this year. Since the decision, a number of states have moved to regulate sports betting, with consumers able to visit casinos and racetracks to place legal wagers. In response to the ruling, the AGA recently moved to update its code of conduct to also cover sports betting as part of an ongoing effort to “build a more cohesive dialogue on responsible gaming”.Image: Pixabay 22nd August 2018 | By contenteditor AGA hails commercial casino as ‘revenue generator’ in US

The World Federation of Trade Unions marked its 75th anniversary on Oct. 3. Its 1945 founding Congress in Paris “spoke in the name of the working people of the world organized in trade unions who wanted a world free from war and social injustices. The foundation of the WFTU was thus seen as indicative of the new era that had opened with the defeat of fascism at the hands of the anti-fascist alliance of states. The working people and the democratic forces saw in that victory the new future of the world, where imperialism and colonialism would retreat and where freedom, peace, democracy and prosperity would advance for all humankind.” (wftucentral.org)Pedro Euse, Secretary General of the United Confederation of Venezuelan Workers, and comrades celebrate the World Federation of Trade Unions (Federación Sindical Mundial).At the 17th Congress, held in 2016 in Durban, South Africa, the federation proclaimed its adherence to anti-imperialist and “class-oriented” union principles. This distinguishes the WFTU from other world labor bodies, which have historically advanced an anti-communist and class collaborationist agenda. In 2016, unions affiliated with WFTU represented 92 million workers around the world, and the federation continues to grow.Speaking in front of a new monument erected in Greece to honor the 75th anniversary, WFTU Secretary-General George Mavrikos said: “We are proud for our 75 years, always together with the ordinary people, always, 75 years, with the workers, with the people who struggle for their interests, for their benefits, for their children and their families. We are optimistic that through our efforts we will build unions strong and with spirit, militant, all over the world.” (wftucentral.org)President Mzwandile Michael Makwayiba of South Africa added: “75 years later WFTU continues the same uncompromising path — with unity, class orientation that is international” and, despite the COVID pandemic, “successfully combining struggles for health of the people with 75 years of life and action of WFTU.” (wftucentral.org)Since the anniversary celebrations, held in numerous countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas, the WFTU has issued progressive statements on the military conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the conviction of fascist Golden Dawn members in Greece and in solidarity with education workers on World Teachers Day. (Oct. 5) Martha Grevatt was a delegate to the 17th Congress of the WFTU. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

We rely heavily on our airports for international connectivity and economic opportunities. Pre-clearance was a game-changer for Shannon, and once travel begins again, we should be targeting the European and transatlantic markets, encouraging more airlines to use Shannon as a hub and avail of pre-clearance into the US.Deputy Crowe said that Ireland needs targeted investment into regional airports to ensure that they are not forced to close as a result of this pandemic.“Shannon is particularly important for the future of the Mid-West and Western region and must be prioritised,” he said.

iStock/Thinkstock(PAYSON, Utah) — Just hours after being arrested and released on bail for allegedly assaulting his wife, a Utah man stole a plane and crashed it into his own home where his wife was staying, police said.The man, 47-year-old Duane Youd, did not survive the crash Monday, officials stated.Flames engulfed the house in the city of Payson after the crash and ensuing fire at 2:30 a.m.Youd’s wife as well as a boy were inside the house at the time of the crash. They were lucky they escaped and the plane did not hit other buildings or any power lines, police said.Youd was an experienced pilot who had access to the twin engine Cessna 525 jet because he flew for the company that owned it, authorities said. He was the only one in the aircraft when it crashed and killed him.Video taken by a neighbor showed flames coming out of the house and people watching from a distance. The neighbor said his mother heard the plane pass by twice before hearing the crash.In another video taken after the crash, the engines of the jet can be heard continuing to whine and actually seemed to be revving up, even as the house goes up in flames.The crash was the third incident with Youd that required authorities within a 12-hour period.At 7:30 p.m., the night before, Youd had been arrested for assaulting his wife and was released on bail, police said.Hours later, at 12:30 a.m., Youd called and asked a patrol officer be present at his house to “keep the peace” as he picked up belongings and his truck, officials said. There was no argument during this incident.The plane crash took place just two hours later.Police said Youd had also been arrested for domestic violence at the house in a previous incident within the past year.The National Transportation Safety Board will be at the scene later Monday to investigate, officials said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
