Governor Cuomo Tweaking Mobile Sports Betting Legalization in New York

New York Mobile Betting Legalization

New York Mobile Betting Legalization

Governor Cuomo wants to bring mobile sports betting to the state of New York in the near future.

Mobile sports betting in New York if done a certain way provides hope for the horse racing industry, who certainly could use help too.”

— Senator Addabbo

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 / — Governor Cuomo’s stance on the state of legal New York sports betting has been constantly evolving. Governor Cuomo wants to bring mobile sports betting to the state of New York in the near future.

New York’s economy was devastated during the COVID pandemic, so sports betting wasn’t on Cuomo’s mind for an extensive period of time. However, Governor Cuomo has begun discussing legal sports betting legislation once again and opened several online sports betting sites which is a positive sign for bettors in the state.

New York Sports Betting Update

Retail sports betting was legalized in New York in 2019. However, this isn’t a widespread industry, so retail books aren’t accessible to all bettors in New York. Following the legalization of New York retail sports betting, Governor Cuomo intended to legalize mobile sports wagering. Tax revenue from mobile sports betting would go towards the New York educational system.

Prior to the COVID pandemic, Governor Cuomo announced that New York mobile sports betting was a priority. Although, it was going to be a very limited system. Mobile sports betting would be run through the New York state lottery.

Legislators didn’t like the idea that the New York state lottery would be the state’s sole sports betting provider. Legislators thought that this plan was going to hurt the state’s chances of generating a substantial amount of tax revenue.

The next proposed plan was for a single outside operator to have a sports betting monopoly in the state. An example of a state that uses this approach is New Hampshire. DraftKings is the only legal sports betting platform that is available in the state.

The New York State Gaming Commission would’ve been the governing body over the single operator under this proposal. Industry experts believed that this was going to be the fate of New York sports betting. Nevertheless, Governor Cuomo has changed his position on the issue once again.

Mobile Sports Betting NY

Governor Cuomo gave his final State of the State Address for 2020 in early January 2021. In this speech, he discussed his proposed New York sports betting bill. He didn’t talk about the bill in great detail, but the post address press release had industry experts predicting what New York sports betting could look like in the relatively near future.

The press release stated that “Under Governor Cuomo’s proposal, the New York State Gaming Commission will issue a request for proposals to select one or more providers to offer mobile sports wagering in New York. This platform must have a partnership with at least one of the existing licensed commercial casinos. The Commission will also require any entity operating mobile wagering apps include safeguards against abuses and addiction.” The key phrase to look at in this paragraph is, “one or more providers.”

The last time the form of gambling was discussed, mobile sports betting was going to be limited to one provider. This press release shows that New York could welcome multiple providers into the state. This has bettors in New York very excited about the future. New York is the fourth largest state in the country, so the sports betting market has the potential to be immense.

When Will Mobile Sports Betting be Legal in New York?

It’s a positive sign that Governor Cuomo wants to allow multiple online sports betting sites access to the New York market. This is what most legislators in the state have been pushing for since retail sports betting was legalized. Governor Cuomo’s new proposal shows that he is willing to listen to the state legislators in both chambers.

This could still be a very long legislative process. It has been well over a year since New York legalized retail sports betting. This was a contested development so I wouldn’t expect anything different when online skins are discussed in the state government.

Online legislators acted quickly once the news broke from Governor Cuomo’s office. There was an identical bill that was proposed in the House of Representatives and Senate following the press release. Both these bills would allow up to 14 online skins in New York. The goal is to create as much tax revenue as possible. 14 skins would help the state’s education system and rejuvenate the economy following the COVID pandemic.

J. Gary Pretlow was responsible for the House bill and Joseph Addabbo Jr. introduced the new legislation in the Senate. There are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding the proposed bills. The horse racing industry wasn’t mentioned by Governor Cuomo, but this form of gambling will need to be included to create a betting system that works for all parties. Senator Addabbo said this about the bill, in support of horse racing: “Mobile sports betting in New York if done a certain way provides hope for the horse racing industry, who certainly could use help too.”

More information should be unveiled as the 2021 legislative session progresses. The New York State Legislature convened on January 6th and will adjourn on June 18th. This gives legislators plenty of time to pass a mobile sports betting bill.

Members of The Outlaws stand against a wall, with all seven wearing black t-shirts.

The Outlaws

The Outlaws will bring their legendary performance style to Milford Connecticut in October for a concert at Veterans Memorial Auditorium.

This should be a great opportunity for southern rock fans to get back to live entertainment and see some true legends perform… This should be a great one.”

— Baker Concerts

MILFORD, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 / — The Outlaws, legends of southern rock, are bringing their celebrated sound to Connecticut’s Veterans Memorial Auditorium on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Tickets are on sale now at

For more than 40 years, The Outlaws have celebrated triumphs and endured tragedies to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Back with new music, new focus, and an uncompromising mission, The Outlaws are a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony, and the road. They respect their own legacy while refusing to be defined by the past – including their own.

“Because The Outlaws had been out of the public eye for so long, it was almost like starting over,” original singer/songwriter and guitarist Henry Paul said of the band’s acclaimed 2012 comeback album It’s About Pride. “But because of the band’s history, we’re still seeing this as a new chapter. What our fans loved then is what they still love now, because we are just as good or even better than we were.”

Tickets are available now at, with prices beginning as low as $40 and premium seats at the edge of the stage available for $55. Organizers are confident that the performance will run as planned with full capacity as concerts return from their long hiatus due to the coronavirus. Should a cancellation be necessary, full refunds would be granted.

“This should be a great opportunity for southern rock fans to get back to live entertainment and see some true legends perform,” says a spokesperson for Baker Concerts, which is organizing the show. “After being locked out from live entertainment for so long, we’re thrilled to see shows coming back, and this should be a great one.”

Veterans Memorial Auditorium is an intimate venue at 70 West River Street, Milford, Connecticut with a capacity of 962 assigned seats. Originally part of the Milford High School, the auditorium has undergone a face-lift to become part of the Parsons Government Center and the home of performing arts in the city.

Doors for The Outlaws on October 2, 2021 at Milford’s Veterans Memorial Auditorium open at 7 p.m. with music scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased now at .

Oil on canvas Portrait of Miss Kent by Sir Thomas Lawrence (British, 1769-1830), unsigned, 30 ¼ inches by 25 inches (sight, less frame) ($25,000).

English late 17th or early 18th century black lacquered japanned cabinet on a stand having an overall gilt chinoiserie landscape and foliate decoration ($21,080).

Oil on canvas equestrian painting by John Frederick Herring (British, 1795-1865), titled Horses and Goat Eating Turnips and Carrots (1848), artist signed and dated ($62,000).

Golf legend Bobby Jones’s personal 1950s-era leather shag/range bag, personalized with Jones’s name in stencil, with three golf balls and a copy of a photo of Jones ($27,900).

The sale featured art and objects from the estate of art collector and philanthropist Jack Warner and items salvaged from the wreckage of the RMS Carpathia.

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 / — A Chinese Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) carved cinnabar lidded box sold for $81,250, an oil on canvas equestrian painting by John Frederick Herring (British, 1795-1865) realized $62,000, and golf legend Bobby Jones’s personal 1950s-era shag/range bag finished at $27,900 in Ahlers & Ogletree’s three-day A Collector’s Dream Auction held January 15th-17th.

The online-only auction featured important art and objects from the estate of the noted American art collector and philanthropist Jack Warner (1917-2017), items salvaged from the wreckage of the RMS Carpathia, and more than 1,000 lots of fine art, period antiques, decorative arts, silver, jewelry and Asian arts from prominent estates and collections. It netted a little over $2 million.

The rectangular Chinese Ming Dynasty carved cinnabar lidded box was the sale’s top lot. The 11 ¾ inch tall by 13 inch wide box showed a dragon chasing the flaming pearl and had a character mark to the pearl on the lid. Eager bidders were not deterred by some small scattered losses and vertical cracking to the enamel (consistent with age). Despite those flaws, it presented very well.

The oval equestrian painting by John Frederick Herring, titled Horses and Goat Eating Turnips and Carrots (1848), was the top earner of items from the Jack Warner (and Warner Foundation) estate. The work was signed and dated. Herring was famous for his lively depictions of race horses and agricultural scenes. He’s considered one of the top animal painters of his time.

The Bobby Jones personal golf shag bag – brown leather, personalized with Jones’s name in original stencil (“R. T. Jones Jr., an abbreviation of his full birth name, Robert Tyre Jones) – came with three golf balls (unassociated) and a copy of a photograph of Jones, all housed in a Lucite and wood display case. The lot boasted an impeccable provenance.

Following are additional highlights from the auction, which grossed just over $2 million and was hosted online via, and Phone and absentee bids were also taken. All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

The action got underway on Friday, January 15th, with 94 lots of objects retrieved from the RMS Carpathia during a 2007 expedition. All lots were accompanied by certificates of authenticity. The Carpathia was built in England in 1903 and famously rescued survivors of the Titanic in 1912. But the Carpathia herself was sunk in 1918 after being torpedoed by a German submarine.

Following are just a few of the better performing items retrieved from the RMS Carpathia:

• A brass and bronze framed porthole with glass window, plus an attached partial wooden substructure, the hinge marked ‘89’, 7 ¾ inches tall by 24 ¾ inches wide ($16,120).
• A brass ship’s bridge engine order telegraph on a base, likely made by A. Robinson & Co., Ltd. (English, founded 1760), marked on the plaque in part ‘Liverpool’ ($14,880).
• A brass and bronze deck light having a colorless glass globe secured by a cage, plus fragments of the ship’s wooden elements, the socket marked ‘Diswan’ ($16,120).
• A Dobbie Son & Hutton (London) model 5561 marine chronometer, the silvered face having Roman numerals, 56 hour up and down dial and 60 second dial ($11,780).

Later on Friday, at 1 pm, over 100 lots from Jack Warner’s estate came up for bid. The second top lot (after the Herring painting) was an oil on board American genre scene by Edward Lamson Henry (S.C./N.Y., 1841-1919), titled Tardy. The work, of an African American boy showing up late for school, was signed lower left and measured 13 inches by 10 inches (board) ($19,000).

Also from the Warner estate was a 19th century Pacific Northwest coast British Columbia Haida polychrome and hand-carved wooden totem pole, 82 inches (including stand), with a raven, frog, human and bear motif ($16,250); and a Chinese silk embroidery housed in a 53 inch by 38 ¼ inch frame, with a pheasant, bird and blooming tree scene in nice blue and beige tones ($11,250).

A Signature Estates Auction was held Saturday and Sunday. Sold on Saturday were fine examples of art and design by Hans Wegner, Raphael Soto, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Ken Payne, Thomas Eakins and Athos Menaboni, plus a large collection of taxidermy. The Sunday lots included antiques and fine art from Great Britain, Italy, France and Europe.

Weekend winners included an oil on canvas Portrait of Miss Kent by Sir Thomas Lawrence (British, 1769-1830), unsigned, 30 ¼ inches by 25 inches (sight, less frame) ($25,000); and an English late 17th or early 18th century black lacquered japanned cabinet on a stand having an overall gilt chinoiserie landscape and foliate decoration ($21,080).

A complete antique suit of armor in the 17th century style, probably Italian or Swiss made and finely detailed with rope edged elements scattered throughout, 66 inches tall (less 12-inch stand) made $13,750. Also, a pair of late 19th/early 20th century Continental outdoor lion marble sculptures on plinths, unmarked, both 36 ½ inches tall, commanded $11,875.

Family-Friendly Beach Cleanup Promotes That Caring for the Environment Can Improve Your State of Mind

A team of volunteers from The Way to Happiness Foundation of Tampa Bay spends an invigorating afternoon at a cleanup of Clearwater Beach that was fun for the entire family.

It was a glorious day for an afternoon cleanup.

It was a glorious day for an afternoon cleanup.

The cleanup was a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon together.

The Way to Happiness Foundation of Tampa Bay suggests an activity that is family-oriented, fun, and enhances the environment and community.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 / — Nearly a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, families are often hard pressed to find activities that are safe, extroverting, and fun for everyone.
A team of volunteers from The Way to Happiness Foundation of Tampa Bay proved that a neighborhood cleanup can fit all these requirements.

Keeping in pandemic protocols by wearing masks and gloves, the volunteers met at The Way to Happiness Tampa Bay Foundation at 33 North Fort Harrison Avenue in Clearwater, Florida, and headed for Clearwater Beach carrying “grabbers” and garbage bags.

By the end of the afternoon, they collected and carried off 12 pounds of trash (including an estimated 100 cigarette butts) and headed for home invigorated, energized and happy. Not only was the afternoon fun for everyone, they also felt great about accomplishing something that helps the community and the environment.

“Nice to see the beach being cleaned up!” was one of the comments on their Facebook page. “[The Foundation] always does an outstanding job getting involved with so many causes helping the community greatly,” commented another.

The Way to Happiness is a common-sense guide to better living by humanitarian and Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. The book contains 21 precepts—principles or rules of conduct one can adopt and urge others to follow to help them survive and lead happier lives.

Environmental cleanups are one of the many activities those who live by The Way to Happiness take part in.

In the precept “Safeguard and Improve Your Environment,” Mr. Hubbard wrote, “The idea that one has a share in the planet and that one can and should help care for it may seem very large and, to some, quite beyond reality. But today what happens on the other side of the world, even so far away, can effect what happens in your own home.”

“Care of the planet begins in one’s own front yard. It extends through the area one travels to get to school or work. It covers such places as where one picnics or goes on vacation. The litter which messes up the terrain and water supply, the dead brush which invites fire, these are things one need not contribute to and which, in otherwise idle moments, one can do something about.”

A free online course covering each of the 21 precepts is available through The Way to Happiness website, which includes the text of the book, the feature-length The Way to Happiness book-on-film and 21 public service announcements illustrating each of the book’s precepts.

“This booklet is priceless!” was a recent comment of a visitor to the Facebook of The Way to Happiness Foundation of Tampa Bay. “Reading it gave me hope; seeing it on DVD gave me tears of joy; being able to download it and have it available everywhere makes me jump [for joy] because I know from experience that the data in there give a person the right tool to come out of anything. All you need to do is to decide to apply those principles.”

The Foundation's Tampa Bay headquarters was dedicated in 2015 by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige as part of an initiative to bring the full breadth of Church-sponsored humanitarian campaigns and social betterment programs to Clearwater, the city that hosts the spiritual headquarters of the Church of Scientology.

Essay Pop partners with Elite Prep

Powerful assessment tools saves time for teacher to grade essays quickly as well as deep dive into what needs work

Proprietary frame-based writing allows anyone to write a well-developed essay, or any written piece

Track progress over time to analyze areas of improvement for the individual

Edtech upstart EssayPop partners with tutoring veteran Elite Prep, empowering teachers with new tech just in time for recent changes in education

USA, January 21, 2021 / — The rapidly-growing writing platform, EssayPop, is proud to announce a partnership with Elite Prep, a globally recognized educational company headquartered in California with over 50 locations worldwide.

EssayPop is an intuitive and highly-scaffolded writing system that smartly breaks academic papers into their constituent elements so that students can approach essay-writing in a granular, step-by-step fashion. The developers tout the system as ‘the cure for writer’s block”. From a teacher’s viewpoint, Elite’s own senior instructor Alexander Hodge-Wallis had a few key thoughts about the system: “The great thing about EssayPop is that it helps students visually establish the structure of an essay in a way that is not possible with traditional means of teaching essay writing. It helps me see where students are misunderstanding the particular function of a sentence type (thesis statements, for example) and quickly identify what they are having trouble with. I can have my advanced students experiment and play with complicated structures while my students who are struggling can use more simple/classical styles while both using the same prompt. Several of my students got really creative with how they used the program, experimenting with different ideas, arguments, seeing which rules could be bent, broken, and which shouldn't be touched at all…the resulting final essays really demonstrated their creativity. The fact that EssayPop allows students to literally drag sentences around to see what effect it has is a great feature. It is helpful to me to see what my students are writing in real-time, that way I can identify problems early in the writing process.”

As for flexibility in teaching a variety of students, Mr. Hodge-Wallis also shared “One of the great things that makes my life significantly easier as an instructor is the way EssayPop helps struggling students structure their papers. I had several students for whom English is not their first language and who greatly struggle with wording; however, regardless of wording issues, they were able to come up with structurally strong, logically cohesive arguments and expositions in a way that I think would have been significantly more difficult to do without EssayPop.”

According to Elite's operation manager, Jon Kang, "I can't say enough good things about EssayPop. All of our students at Elite who had the opportunity to use the platform loved it. More than one student said it was the best experience they've had in learning how to write better."

EssayPop CEO, Michael Hicks, is also pleased with the partnership. “It’s great to work with yet another well-established purpose-driven institution focused on cultivating students to their full potential,” says Hicks. “In a world with ever-increasing standards for students and an only-the-best-for-future-generations mentality, we’re getting pretty good at building unique solutions and custom tailored experiences for our partners. It’s shown that our platform is flexible enough to accommodate different expectations, academic writing structures, and rubrics. It’s always been our intention to have universal compatibility.” Andrew Wang, SVP of Partnerships, is also quite optimistic for EssayPop’s continued success, indicating that “this partnership bears great significance in expanding our clientele and applications for any institution wishing to improve their pedagogy and practice. We welcome all to reach out and have a chat. I’m sure we’ll find a solution that works for them.”

The platform also includes a social and interactive environment, called the Hive, where students and teachers can provide support for one another in real-time from anywhere. It’s a clever tool built by teachers and one which has proven to be essential with schools that are engaged in traditional, distance, and hybrid learning. Mr. Kang touts, “As an educator, I'm a firm believer in the power of collaboration and learning-by-helping. That's exactly what students are able to do in the Hive. EssayPop makes peer-to-peer interaction so easy to implement, both in and out of class. Students learn just as much from writing their own essays as they do from providing feedback for other students in their pod.” Mr. Wallis adds, “There were several things I noticed that students liked. The first is that, if they were struggling, they could go into the hive and see what their peers were doing and model their writing after that. They also liked that they could ask for- and receive- near instant feedback from me on work they had just written. My more ambitious students really took the program and flew with it.”

As for the overall experience with the EssayPop team, Jon Kang raves, “What impresses me the most about Essaypop though is how thoughtful they are about the user experience–for students, teachers, and even administrators. It definitely helps that the founder and CEO is a 27-year veteran English teacher.”

The California-based company has grown rapidly in recent months with over 180,000 teachers and 800,000 students signing up the past quarter. EssayPop has users in every state in the nation and in overseas markets such as Canada, UK, Australia and all over Asia Pacific.
