Licensing WatchandWager renews California horse racing licence  “We are pleased to receive this key license renewal from the California Horse Racing Board for WatchandWager,” WatchandWager president Ed Comins said. “We believe that the tax, revenue, and jobs generated from this license will have an important benefit to the state of California, especially in light of the economic difficulties caused by the California wildfires and the Covid-19 virus.” Webis Holdings’ advance deposit wagering subsidiary WatchandWager has renewed its licence to offer horse racing in California. Email Address The operator said the renewal would mean it has continued access to the largest US state population, while also leaving it well-placed to expand into sports betting should regulation pass. Webis also holds a long-term lease at the Cal Expo racetrack, meaning it offers land-based wagering on racing alongside its online presence. “With this important license and our physical presence at Cal Expo in Sacramento, we believe that the passage of legalized sports betting will result in even more new jobs, duties, and tax revenue to the state,” Comins continued. “WatchandWager stands ready to be an active partner in supporting not only the state’s racing and gaming industry, but also supporting the recovery of the state as a whole.”center_img Regions: US California Read the full story on iGB North America.

Biden Plan to Protect Farms from Elimination of Capital Gains Tax…

first_img By NAFB News Service – Apr 28, 2021 Ahead of Wednesday night’s joint session of Congress address by President Joe Biden, the White House released details of the American Families Plan.The bulk of the $1.8 trillion package focuses on education, direct support to low- and middle-income families and extending tax breaks to families with children.Biden plans to end other tax breaks to pay for the package, including stepped-up basis. However, Biden says, “The reform will be designed with protections so that family-owned businesses and farms will not have to pay taxes when given to heirs who continue to run the business.”“A long-standing provision of U.S. tax law is that a capital gains tax is not imposed when assets are transferred at death to an heir,” said Veronica Nigh, economist with the American Farm Bureau Federation. “Furthermore, tax law allows the heir to increase their basis in the asset to fair market value without paying capital gains tax,” which is referred to as a step-up in basis.

Two bills tailored for Berlusconi’s media empire progress through parliament

The news media are at the heart of his economic empire. He owns Mondadori, one of Italy’s biggest press and publishing groups, and Mediaset, which groups three commercial TV channels. At the same time, as prime minister, he has considerable influence over the state radio and TV broadcaster RAI.The bill passed by the chamber of deputies says the management of a profit-making enterprise is incompatible with public office, but insists that there is no conflict of interests if the running of the company is entrusted to another person. Since Berlusconi’s companies are run by family members and associates and Berlusconi’s name does not appear in their organisation charts, there is no conflict of interests, according to the bill. The opposition refused to participate in the final vote on this bill, which must be approved by the senate before it becomes law.The Gasparri bill on broadcasting reform, which must now come before the chamber of deputies, allows companies to have interests in more than one news media category, reforms anti-trust restrictions and changes the composition of RAI’s board of governors. Beginning in January 2009, someone who owns more than one TV channel will also be able to acquire print media.By allowing more advertising, the bill will increase the dominance of RAI and Mediaset, which together already absorb 93 per cent of the money spent on television advertising. Mediaset alone takes 63 per cent. The reform also envisages a progressive privatisation of RAI, but no shareholder will be able to own more 1 per cent of the shares, which will leave the economy ministry in control. The bill allows the Mediaset channel Retequattro to delay its move to satellite broadcasting until January 2006 instead of January 2004, as required by the constitutional court.Instead of having five members named by the presidents of the senate and chamber of deputies, RAI’s board of governors will have nine members – seven of them named by the parliamentary monitoring commission and two by the economy ministry. Lucia Annunziata, the president of RAI’s board of governors, has said she will resign as soon as the bill becomes law.In a report entitled “A media conflict of interest: anomaly in Italy,” published in April, Reporters Without Borders analysed the consequences of Berlusconi’s conflict of interests on the diversity of news and information in Italy, which fell to 40th position in the worldwide press freedom ranking in 2002.The organisation concluded that the blind trust formula was illusory and was in no way a solution to Berlusconi’s conflict of interests. As there is a danger that a similar situation could arise in other European countries, Reporters Without Borders recommended that the European Commission should look at the case of Italy in the drafting of its green paper on the concentration of news media in the hands of a few individuals or companies.

Shift focus to leaders, not managers

first_imgA lack of leadership among UK firms has created top managerswho think short-term, do not take risks and have tunnel vision on the bottomline.This is the view of Hilarie Owen, chief executive of theInstitute of Leadership, which was launched this week to help improveleadership in UK firms.Owen, who has studied the subject for more than 20 years,believes that British companies are handicapped by conservative thinking atsenior level and that poor leadership is common throughout corporatestructures.She said, “We have to have organisations which are morefocused on leadership. “So many companies have very rigid processes with manymanagers. “People have got to the top by being managers ratherthan leaders.
