Asad Bhorat

Asad Bhorat, secretary of the Transformation and Anti-Racism Rugby Committee (TARC) called De Villiers the ‘ultimate traitor’.

Bhorat said the coach will be summoned to appear before TARC and Parliament’s standing committee on sports and recreation on his return from Australasia for failing to transform the team after proclaiming he would never pick fewer than 10 black players in his starting line-up.

De Villiers has picked three players of colour in his starting XV during the Tri-Nations – Bryan Habana and JP Pietersen on the wings, and Zimbabwean-born Beast Mtawarira at prop.

Bhorat told the Saturday Star that De Villiers had let his ‘ego be inflated by his winning streak’ and had silently become ’submissive’ to SA Rugby by fielding an almost all-white team.

Is Bhorat accusing PdeV of racism? Or just not choosing a losing squad to meet targets?

The American Government

For putting this guy in Gaol.

Who is the larger crimmininal?

The US Government tax system or:

Gary Kaplan, the founder of BetOnSports, has pled guilty to violations of RICO and the Wire Act in a Missouri courtroom. He will face between 41 and 51 months behind bars and pay the United States Government $43.65 million.

According to a press release distributed by the U.S. Department of Justice, Kaplan established businesses in Costa Rica, Antigua, and Aruba. One company was BetOnSports, which advertised heavily to U.S. customers and offered the following technological prowess: “Kaplan’s toll-free telephone lines terminated in Houston or Miami and then were forwarded to Costa Rica by satellite transmitter or fiber-optic cable. Some of Kaplan’s Web servers were located in Miami and were remotely controlled from Costa Rica.”

The Department of Justice contends that in 2004, BetOnSports had 1,700 employees in Costa Rica alone and nearly one million registered customers. Its clientele issued more than 10 million bets that combined for over $1 billion. Also in 2004, BetOnSports held an initial public offering (IPO) on the London Stock Exchange that earned Kaplan $100 million. He was arrested in March of 2007 and sentencing will take place on October 27th. He has been held without bond ever since being detained by U.S. authorities.

Former BetOnSports CEO David Carruthers pled guilty to racketeering charges in April and now faces up to 33 months behind bars. Carruthers, who was detained in St. Louis, will learn his fate during a sentencing hearing on October 2nd. In June, Neil Scott Kaplan, Lori Kaplan-Multz, and Penelope Tucker all pled guilty for their roles with BetOnSports. None will receive jail time, although Tucker was issued a one year probation. Kaplan’s trial had been scheduled for September 21st before last week’s plea agreement was announced.

Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMEGA) Chairman Joe Brennan, who has been closely monitoring the actions in the BetOnSports case, told Poker News Daily, “It sounds like Kaplan’s plea agreement is complex. However, his risk against going to jail for a long time seems to have been minimized. There may also be some recognition that he’s already spent a significant amount of time behind bars.” Last August, William Hernan Lenis, Will Lenis, and Manny Lenis became the first BetOnSports staffers to admit guilt. The trio advertised the online sports betting outfit; one stunt involved bringing an RV to a St. Louis Rams game in 2002, enabling fans to place bets before entering the stadium.

In June, the Southern District of New York (SDNY) seized over $30 million in payments destined for more than 24,000 online poker players in the United States, marking one of the first times that the industry has been the target of federal law enforcement actions. Brennan explained, “Under the new administration, there has been no softening of the stance by the Justice Department towards internet gambling. When you look at what happened with Kaplan and what’s happening with the SDNY, it may be discouraging to those who thought that with the new administration, there would be less hostility towards internet gambling.”

On Friday, attorneys for Account Services will appear in the Southern District of California calling for the return of $14 million seized by the SDNY in June. Recently, Douglas Rennick, an individual associated with the company, was indicted on bank fraud, money laundering, and illegal gambling charges. He faces up to 55 years in jail and $1.75 million in fines. Brennan forecasted, “I’m sure that during the course of Friday’s hearing, there is going to be some discussion that the Department of Justice may prefer to see the criminal matter resolved before any civil action can move forward.” The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) has submitted an amicus brief in the case outlining that poker is a game of skill and therefore not illegal gambling.

FBI Special Agent John Gillies noted that Kaplan’s guilty plea was monumental: “Today’s guilty plea should have a lasting effect because Kaplan was not only the founder of BetOnSports, he was also one of the pioneers of illegal online gambling.”

Makhafola on the registering of cell phones: Rica

"Whilst the act does place some burden on the organisation and on customers, we believe this is a positive initiative from government that seeks to ensure the well-being of citizens, and I believe that this understanding will be embraced by consumers,” Makhafola said.

Poepol - In the Soviet Union all photocopiers has to be recorded and registered..." to prevent criminal activity? - yeah activity against an opressive state. Give me liberty.

Carmen Altenkirch

Both Carmen Altenkirch, Nedbank Economist and Mike Shussler said "government spending should not be reigned back until the recession ended" and "the government needed 'to pick up some of the slack in the economy'(Star - Business Report: Thursday July 2, 2009". Poepolle - do they not know that, similar to an invidual household - when things get tough you do not spend yourself out of debt - one becomes more prudent. The same with a business. The same with a local and world economy. It was people with this kind of economic thinking that caused the ecomnomic meltdown in the first place.

In their Furniture: Term and Conditions.

"12. Mr Price Home is not liable for any damages caused by the carrier's delivery vehicle to the customer's residence."

Fuck 'em - haven't they heard of insurance. Come on if their carrier drives through the wall of my home I would expect Mr. Price to sort it out. I did not choose the carrier - they did!

Chinese now also Black in terms of BEE

This did not go down well with Zungu.

“We as black people, who historically have been marginalised by process of legislation, have got to, honestly, jealously guard the gates. I think we have earned our stripes. We are historically disadvantaged because we are the persons who bore the biggest brunt of Apartheid,” explained Zungu investments company executive chairperson Sandile Zungu.

Ag shame - dog in a manger. Woof Woof.

The 2009 Two Oceans Commentators

That did not notice that Wachiro was catching up to Marco Mambo until it was too late. They could have given us some exciting commentary rather than praising Mambo, speculating about Mambo, saying what great athlete he was, having it in the bag, talking about his wife doing the work, making history and generally talking crap - all that while he was being overtaken by the Kenyan! They were sleeping on the job! They missed an opportunity of giving us quality and gripping commentary. Bah to SABC for goofing this one up!

This year’s Two Oceans ultra marathon then was won this morning by John Wachira from Central Gauteng (orig. Kenya) in a time of three-hours-10-minutes-and-06 seconds. Marco Mambo of Zimbabwe, who was trying to win the gruelling race for a fourth time, was second, less than a minute behind Wachira. Mapisela Ntlotsoeu was third.
