Bill Day / Cagle CartoonsMaking Sense by Michael ReaganI didn’t watch CNN’s telecast of the Republican debate because I was there in person.For some reason — maybe it was my last name — I was able to score three second-row seats at the Reagan Library for the two debates.More than 20 million people around the world tuned in, apparently making the three-hour debate CNN’s highest rated show ever.It was a long night of politics and entertainment. I just hope my fellow conservative Republicans watching on TV saw the same political reality show I did — and learned some lessons.It’s pretty clear to everyone from Joe Scarborough to the New York Times editorial board that the three big winners Wednesday night were Carly Fiorina, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio.All three shined on stage when it came to substance, but Fiorina made herself a national household name overnight.She was smart, tough, passionate and quick on her feet, proving why she deserves to be on the main stage. She had several big “moments” and demonstrated a phenomenal grasp of the issues.Christie did well, connecting with voters, hitting several questions out of the park and reminding us why he was once a favorite in the 2016 race.Rubio still looks like he’s in grad school, but he showed he’s done his foreign policy homework and knows what makes America great.Meanwhile, the good doctor Ben Carson was a clear loser.He offered virtually no specifics, had no “moments” and showed that while he’s a nice guy and a great surgeon, the presidency is out of his league.The biggest loser of the night was Trump, who was as awful in person as he reportedly appeared on millions of split-screen TVs.He made crazy faces, offended people, refused to apologize when he should have, spoke in his usual platitudes and never said a substantive sentence.I heard more than a few groans and complaints from the Republicans sitting behind me.Most of the other candidates — the governors and others who were not there because of their celebrity — did OK. They didn’t hurt themselves but they didn’t stand out, either.Jeb Bush did better than last time, which isn’t saying much, but he’s in for the long haul. He’ll do better when there are fewer candidates left and the debates turn more serious.Scott Walker did better too, though he seemed to disappear sometime late in hour two. Last time I remember seeing him, he was staring at fiery Fiorina and nodding in agreement like a bobblehead.Ted Cruz was correct on all the issues, but he’s not as likable as Rubio, whose only flaw is he still looks like he’s in grad school.Mike Huckabee got in a lick or two, but he’s still beating the drum for his Fair Tax, which everyone except him knows will never go anywhere.Rand Paul was there, I think. So was Gov. John Kasich. Kasich was Kasich — solid and substantive.He’s a winner who knows how to govern Ohio sensibly, but he probably should have been included in the preliminary debate with Rick Santorum, George Pataki, Bobby Jindal and Lindsey Graham.The opening debate, which Graham stole with his humor and GOP team spirit, was better in some ways because without the 2,000-pound celebrity in the room it was all substance.I’m concerned about Trump for a lot of reasons. Yet for all the trouble he’s causing the GOP, his celebrity presence is actually doing real conservatives a great favor.He’s already brought tens of millions of new eyeballs to the debate broadcasts that otherwise would never have been made aware of the existence of candidates like Fiorina or Kasich.I just hope those millions of viewers saw what I saw at the Reagan Library — that Emperor Trump had no clothes on and most of the other real Republican candidates were well dressed.Please take time and vote in today’s “Readers Poll”.

The CEOs from Aspers, bet365, Caesars, Flutter Entertainment, Genting, GVC Holdings, Playtech, Rank Group, Sky Betting & Gaming and William Hill have all committed to the new set of measures which is hoped to support the UK Gambling Commission’s National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms. Peter Jackson – FlutterCommenting on the announcement, Peter Jackson, Chief Executive of Flutter Entertainment, said: “These commitments are an important step forward for the sector in their own right and also signal a genuine desire to ensure that acting responsibly is at the heart of our businesses.”The five core safer gambling commitments will hope to deliver long-term and fundamental changes in how gambling companies are run in the UK and how they empower, protect and support their customers.The commitments are driven by the mandate of – ‘preventing underage gambling and protect young people; increasing support for treatment of gambling harm; strengthening and expanding codes of practice for advertising and marketing; protecting and empowering our customers and; promoting a culture of safer gambling’. Support for the safer gambling commitments comes on the same day that a new representative body for the UK’s betting and gaming industry formally launches. The ‘Betting and Gaming Council‘ will represent betting shops, online gaming businesses and casinos, and has been established in response to calls for the industry to work together to guarantee an enjoyable, fair and safe betting and gaming experience for all.Brigid SimmondsBrigid Simmonds OBE, Chairman of the Betting and Gaming Council, added: “The Betting and Gaming Council welcomes these commitments from the chief executives. This is a major step towards preventing underage gambling and addressing harm. “Working together as an industry we will create a culture of safer gambling – increasing the competency of professionals who educate young people, increasing support for treatment, strengthening and expanding codes of practice and empowering consumers.“These are commitments that the BGC will champion and drive forward to build public and institutional trust in our industry.”As of today, GamCare and Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust (YGAM) will also help support a new four-year national education programme tailored towards supporting young people, families and the youth professional workforce to improve awareness and understanding of the risks associated with gambling. Lee Willows, Founder & Chief Executive of YGAM explained: “In collaboration with GamCare we’ll deliver a national education programme to raise awareness of the risks of gambling as well as help build digital resilience among young people. The transparent way in which this programme will be reported on and evaluated is helpful to aid public understanding of its impact and further raise awareness.”Chief Executive of GamCare, Anna Hemmings, said: “The commitment to meet GamCare’s Safer Gambling Standard and to work towards achieving our Advanced Level accreditation will drive a step-change in industry standards. “We are also delighted to be working alongside YGAM to deliver our shared aspirations for youth education around gambling and the harms it can cause. Education is essential in ensuring that young people understand the risks of gambling and are able to make informed decisions about their participation in these activities and think critically about them before doing so.”In a bid to improve transparency and accountability, the CEOs have also committed to regular and public checks with an independent monitoring and evaluation process consistent with the best practice approach used by public bodies, including the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), HM Treasury and UK Evaluation Society. The announcement comes off the back of a recent interim report published by the Gambling Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) which has called for further action from the Government and the UKGC to combat problem gambling.Tim Miller – UKGCThe cross-party group argued that there is no justification for online slot games to have stake levels above the £2 limit which is currently in place across retail venues, with the APPG highlighting ‘the disparity in content controls and stake and deposit limits between online and offline games.’Showing his support for the new commitments, Tim Miller, Executive Director of the UKGC, concluded: “Through the National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms we have been clear on the important role for greater collaboration and partnership working across the industry, alongside robust regulatory action by us. “We have been encouraged by moves across the industry in recent months to work together on player protection and hope that this programme marks another step forward by gambling companies in delivering on the ambitions in the National Strategy.” Share UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share

ARCADIA, Calif. (May 28, 2016)–After 11 starts, John Parker’s homebred colt by Private Gold, Gold Rush Dancer, has found a home on turf as he took Saturday’s $200,000 Snow Chief Stakes by a nose under Flavien Prat. Trained by Vann Belvoir, Gold Rush Dancer, who is out of Parker’s In Excess mare Dances On Water, sat a comfortable second to the top of the lane and in a protracted stretch drive, covered a mile and one eighth on turf in 1:49.37 while just holding off the late charge of Ralis and Mario Gutierrez.With longshot Glory Bound and Edwin Maldonado carving out splits of 23.75, 48.56, 1:13.24 and 1:37.42, Gold Rush Dancer, who came off a length and a quarter win in the one mile turf Silky Sullivan Stakes at Golden Gate Fields on May 1, was into the bridle to the pacesetter’s outside until the pair reached the sixteenth pole and the winner inched clear as Maldonado steadied at the rail.“When I saw the pace wasn’t quite as fast as we thought it would be, I was a little worried he’d be a little keen with Flavien,” said Belvoir. “In the race up north, he had cover and that helped him relax, but he ended up relaxing pretty well today up the backside.“I’m more impressed with this race today, because he leveled so well through the stretch. They were really running there. I think he’s a lot better horse on the turf and that’s where he’s going to stay.”The 3-2 favorite in a field of five sophomores, Gold Rush Dancer, who was making his second-ever start on grass, paid $5.00, $3.00 and $2.10. A winner of the Gottstein Futurity at Emerald Downs near Seattle on Sept. 27, Gold Rush Dancer picked up his third stakes win and his fourth overall victory from 11 starts. With the winner’s share of $110,000, he now has earnings of $294,423.“I had a good trip today, but he was still a bit aggressive,” said Prat, who was aboard for the win at Golden Gate as well. “Even though he’s run a lot, he’s still green, he’s still learning…He came in a little bit in the stretch but I don’t think he did anything wrong.”Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Ralis saved ground at the rail into the far turn, swung three wide turning for home and just missed, finishing second, 1 ¼ lengths in front of Tough It Out. Off at 2-1, Ralis paid $3.20 and $2.20Tough It Out, ridden by Joe Talamo, sat a joint third with Ralis into the far turn and was a bit erratic through the drive, finishing third, three quarters of a length in front of Glory Bound. The second choice at 2-1, Tough It Out paid $2.10 to show.The stewards posted the inquiry sign regarding the stretch run, but in a unanimous decision, determined that although Maldonado steadied at the sixteenth pole aboard a tiring Glory Bound, the winner was not at fault. Glory Bound ended up finishing fourth. RACE IS ONE OF FIVE CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH DAY STAKES FOR CAL-BRED OR SIRED RUNNERS
