first_imgThe deals face their next hurdle in Assemblyman Alberto Torrico, D-Fremont, chairman of the Assembly Governmental Organization committee. Torrico has warned that he believes the compacts do not go far enough to ensure tribes will pay their fair share of taxes on new slot machines.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “There’s a lot of marbles on the table now,” said Jack Gribbon, California political director for Unite Here, the casino and hotel workers union that has promised to pour its resources into defeating the compacts. “We’re talking about an extraordinarily wealthy industry that’s been very willing to throw its weight around … If we do not oppose this now, I don’t know why we would exist. At stake are the rights of 50,000 workers to address living wages, health care and job security for the next 23 years.” The compacts approved Thursday allow five wealthy Southern California tribes that already operate 10,000 slot machines to install as many as 22,500 more, as well as card tables and other casino games. The Senate also approved 99 slot machines for a tribe in far Northern California that has tried for years to get authorization for a gambling hall. Combined, the six compacts would allow the tribes to install enough machines to fill more than 10 Las Vegas-sized casinos and would represent a 50 percent increase in the number of slot machines operated by Indian tribes in the state. The tribal gambling industry in California already generates an estimated $7 billion in annual revenue. SACRAMENTO – The California Senate on Thursday approved the largest expansion of Indian gambling in the state since tribes were given the authority to operate casinos. Before they begin installing 22,500 new slot machines, however, the tribes must persuade reluctant members of the Assembly, which is controlled by Democrats with deep ties to labor unions that oppose the deals. The clash of California’s political titans – labor vs. gambling tribes – will be compounded by pressure from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. He negotiated the agreements last year and has bet on the Legislature approving the compacts to balance his spending plan for the budget year beginning in July. Schwarzenegger is counting on the tribes to be able to install thousands of slot machines by July to begin bringing in the $500-million annual share of casino winnings to the state provided for under the deals. The revenue is increasingly crucial for the governor this year to deliver on his promise of eliminating the state’s chronic budget deficit given that state tax revenue is lagging $1.3 billion below forecasts. last_img read more

first_imgPodcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 32:46 — 26.3MB)Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Podcasts | RSSToday’s guest, Brian Tracy, knows the difference between true balance, and false balance. This hot subject is really a question of values. What do you really value? What is at the top of your priority list? Finding true balance begins with examining how your values are ranked. Brian advises being very clear about your values and organizing your life around them, without compromise. Are you in a state of false balance? False balance, according to Brian, is doing everything possible to conform to what you think you are supposed to be doing, with no happiness. Sit back and listen in to Brian’s advice about goal setting and creating a vision to prioritize your life and optimize your achievement. Most people do not take the time to even consider their values. But smart people and smart companies think it through and adjust as necessary. Get smart today and get In the Arena.It is what people do under pressure that really reveals who they really are ~ Brian TracyClick To TweetGo beyond “sweetheart” valuesThe way you prioritize your values determines everything in your life. Common “sweetheart” values that easily come to mind include love, family, integrity, etc. But, think about how you actually live. Brian Tracy shows you how to discover what you really believe. How did you react the last time you were under pressure? It might reveal what you really think about yourself. Listen in to begin figuring out your basic values. Is it health? Or maybe career success? Or freedom? Can you rank your values, when push comes to shove? Two people might have the same top three values, but how they are ranked will create totally different reactions and totally different people. Do you like what your values say about your life? Are you able to keep your top values on top, even under pressure? Listen in as Brian helps you break free and shift your values. Do you feel like a winner?A huge piece of finding balance is keeping your beliefs in check. Most people do not have any belief in themselves or their worth. Do you look in the mirror and like what you see? So many people have trouble accepting themselves because of early childhood experiences. Brian Tracy speaks to the destructive criticism that destroys any attempts at creating balance. Are you walking wounded? Have you received enough criticism to cripple you? If you do not feel like a winner, you are not going to act like a winner. If you do not think you deserve good things, you will not pursue good things. Or maybe you are already successful, but are doubting yourself, just waiting for it to be taken away. Do you have a nagging feeling that you do not deserve your own success? Brian is here to change your beliefs and the message you are sending yourself. It is time to drive home positive self-talk. It is time to like yourself. You can tell what a person believes by looking at what they do ~ Brian Tracy Click To TweetOvercoming criticism How is your mental fitness? Brian Tracy’s own transformation from a false balance, no self esteem, and small goals will inspire and challenge you. When you set and achieve a goal, it makes you feel like a winner. Results, success, and positive feedback start to shift your perception. Goals are reached after adversity is overcome. One big piece of adversity is yourself. Do you think you are undeserving of success? Are you hung up on the approval of others? Whatever your obstacles, you can overcome them. Brian shares a hurdle in his own marriage of how criticism can poison and damage. Overcome the criticism and negative talk, whether from others or from yourself, to realign yourself and find true balance. Enlarge your vision of successYou might be worried about simply surviving. Or you might be consumed with ensuring your own security, either emotionally or financially. Wherever you fall on the spectrum of thinking determines what goals you are capable of setting. Today, Brian Tracy wants to enlarge your vision of success. Many people have trouble setting goals, which ultimately causes difficulty in achieving balance. Speaking to entrepreneurs, Brian knows that, “Once you have tasted Paris, you cannot go back to the farm.” It is the same when you aim high, you will enlarge your vision of success. Dream small, and you’ll achieve small. Get in the arena today and dream big to achieve big.

Saina holds a 3-1 advantage in career meetings against the world No.1.Going into the match, Saina was the heavy favourite but her opponent caught a very good start. Saina took some time to attain momentum as Fanetri held a 6-2 lead. But once the former World No.1 founder her rhythm, she seized the initiative and pushed her rival on the backfoot.Fanetri was forced to play catch up but remained close to Saina’s score at the Istora Senayan stadium. The Hyderabadi held a three-point lead at 14-11 but Fanetri kept coming back, equalising at 15-all. They were involved in a long rallies for the next two points.However, at 17-17, Saina utilised her experience and finished the game in her favour by taking three consecutive points.

first_imgMANCHESTER, England — One thing Pep Guardiola does not tolerate is complacency.After his formidable Manchester City side powered to the Premier League title with a record-equaling five games to spare in 2018, Guardiola insisted there should be no let-up in the remaining matches. City switched its focus to breaking more records, and smashed a host of them as it went on to break the 100-point barrier.It carried that momentum into last season and again proved the dominant force as it claimed an unprecedented domestic treble after edging a thrilling title race with Liverpool.Still, the relentless Guardiola shows no sign of easing up, with a club record 62.8 million pounds ($76.2 million) spent to boost the midfield ranks of a star-studded squad with Spaniard Rodri.That is why, even if Liverpool kicks on from last season’s Champions League success to launch another strong challenge, City enters the new campaign as clear favorite.Guardiola, whose trophy haul in a glittering managerial career now numbers 27, summed up the determination during pre-season.“We prepare how we have for the last three years: step by step, reanalyze, readapt and move forwards,” he said. “We will see our level and whether at the end of the season we can be fighting for titles.“But they are smart guys. They know they are an incredible squad and it isn’t necessary to tell them they have to play well to be in contention to play every day.”One of the main differences from last season is that, for the first time in 11 years, City will be going into a campaign without Vincent Kompany.The long-serving captain left in May to take up the role of player-manager at Anderlecht after playing a typically talismanic role in the run-in.His inspirational leadership will be sorely missed and his departure reduces the number of top-quality center-halves available to Guardiola, although City do have a partnership of potential in John Stones and Aymeric Laporte.There are few obvious weaknesses in the City side. The arrival of Rodri has ended a lengthy search for a long-term successor to Fernandinho in the defensive midfield role and left-back issues will be resolved if Benjamin Mendy can stay fit.Even if not, there is now specialist back-up in Angelino, although Oleksandr Zinchenko has improved markedly.The depth of the goalkeeping resources was not tested last season but Claudio Bravo’s return to fitness after almost a year out provides experienced cover for the brilliant Ederson, even if the Chilean has not always covered himself in glory.Up front Sergio Aguero remains the key man having firmly re-established himself as first-choice striker under Guardiola while Raheem Sterling is now undoubtedly world class and Kevin De Bruyne is fit again.David Silva may be entering his final season at City but Phil Foden looks ready to step into his boots and Bernardo Silva is equally dangerous.Other factors such as the Champions League, injuries and suspensions could come into play but, at the start of the season, the smart money will be on City making it three in a row.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
