Web scraping betting sites for use in a sports betting app. Do these sites enforce their terms and conditions? Is it illegal to scrape these sites in the UK?

Hi there,
In brief, I'm developing a sports betting app that notifies its users of certain bets based on good odds. The user has control over what type of odds they want to receive (such as what type of sport and how good the odds must be). They can also put a limit on the amount of notifications they receive per day. This will all be done in real time, thus when an amazing odd is uploaded to a betting site, the app will quickly alert the user and they can go to the betting website and place their bet.
At the moment, the only way I can think of doing this is to web scrape betting websites (Bet365, Sky, Ladbrookes, William Hill etc). However, I've been reading their terms and conditions and web scraping is clearly prohibited.
Without paying for their APIs, is there anyway to do this? I'm assuming these companies will enforce their terms, especially if the app is commercial?
Any suggestions here would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for reading.

Non-Combat Sea and Underwater Encounters

Your party is sailing or traveling in a submersible (like the Apparatus of Kwalish) and interesting things besides combat happen!
  1. A storm blows in and something strange is washed aboard the ship. You decide! (1d4):
    1. Treasure.
    2. A mermaid.
    3. A strange, half drowned bird.
    4. A dead deep sea fish.
  2. Your submersible travels through a dense forest of Kelp and the propeller gets tangled and the party has to figure out how to dislodge without getting the bends/while under the immense atmospheric pressure under the sea.
  3. The sounds of unearthly singing reach your ears from across the water. You find the remains of ships and sirens (mermaid like tricksters), but the sirens appear to have left.
  4. A whirlpool full of teeth opens up just ahead of your ship and you have to sail to avoid it (think Scylla and Charybdis).
  5. The seagulls are joined by other types of birds in the sky - perhaps something has gone awry on the land (perhaps a major forest fire).
  6. Bio-luminescent jelly fish bloom at night, lighting up the water around you, creating a romantic and breathtaking atmosphere.
  7. You find a dingy afloat all alone on the sea with a child/NPC with a story hook aboard.
  8. The stowaway is revealed after someone finally took inventory of the stowed supplies below deck when the chocolate was disappearing in larger quantities than expected.
  9. Seasoned sailors get seasick as you realize maybe something is wrong with the food.
  10. You see a gargantuan entity on the horizon and the sailors start to tell tales. You decide! (1d4)
    1. Uk'otoa.
    2. Dragon Turtles.
    3. Giant Hermit Crabs.
    4. Sea Serpents.
  11. You hit the doldrums. There is no wind and no current. The ship you are on has to wait until the wind starts again. Escape?
    1. The wind only starts on a natural 20 roll on a d20.
    2. Every day that passes uses up rations and fresh water.
    3. Once the food runs out, and the PCs begin to starve (failed CON roll with increaseing daily DC starting at 10) they may well begin to go insane.
    4. Cannibalism will resolve any hunger issues.
  12. You find a message in a bottle floating near the ship. It's from a father to his children, writing to tell them how much he misses them while he's on the high seas. Optional bonus quest to find the children and deliver the letter.
  13. One of the crew members caught a magical talking fish. The fish claims that if you set him free, he'll grant you a wish.
  14. A dolphin has been following the ship for three days. A. If treated kindly, the dolphin shows the way to a hidden lagoon with treasure. B. Treated badly, the dolphin and its friends make a large hole in the bottom of the ship.
  15. Things are going missing from the deck of the ship. If investigated, it's a bird. The bird has built a nest and is clearly trying to impress a potential mate with its newfound collection.
  16. A strange formation of rocks appears a ways off the shoreline of an island. Closer inspection reveals that these are not rocks, but bones from an ancient dragon. Perhaps the hoard is somewhere nearby?
  17. A sea witch happens upon the ship. She gives the party the "gift of communication" and casts a friendly spell before going on her way. The enchantment is aimed at the ship. For the next 14 days, the ship is sentient and can communicate with the crew. And boy oh boy, does this ship have some opinions!
  18. A wave washes a large shell onto the deck of the ship. It's a instrument, and the first person to pick it up gains proficiency in playing the shell. The shell can lull any baby in a 10 foot radius into a peaceful slumber.
  19. Fair wind: you arrive sooner
  20. Shitty wind: you are forced to sail around your destination to gain favorable wind. Arrive later. Tacking negates this somewhat
  21. A storm rolls in, but is just rain
  22. A storm rolls in and creates fog, travel is slowed, but less than bad winds. A measure of a few hours, not days.
  23. Two ships are fighting
  24. A ship is fighting a kraken
  25. A storm rolls in. Its a maelstrom
  26. A traveling sea merchant rolls by.
  27. Come across ship wreckage
  28. Come across a patch of darker water that slows the ship
  29. Ghost ship arises on the new moon is empty
  30. Ghost ship arises on the full moon and is crewed by skeletons
  31. Smaller ship tries to square up
  32. Bigger ship bullies you until you pay a toll or tax, fights if you refuse
  33. An island is sighted, but is not there when you arrive
  34. An island appears on the horizon where you JUST checked (its an island turtle)
  35. A rock appears where you swear there was nothing beforw (its a Gargantuan hermit crab)
  36. You see an undersea fight that causes the sea to roll and boil, sometimes popping up above water
  37. Coral reef! On a failed perception roll, boat takes damage and must be repaired. On a 1 it must be repaired 2x, once to stop it from sinking, and then again at port. A giant serpent surfaces and eyes the boat, eventually moving on
  38. An empty ship rolls by, slowly. (Mimic ship with oozes below)
  39. The sounds of unearthly singing reach your ears from across the water. You consider going after them, but decide not to (wis save)
  40. Your rowboat ropes start to snap! Make a dex save, mending check, strength saving throw to save it.
  41. A comet streaks across the sky
  42. Aurora Borealis
  43. You hear rumbling off in the distance. A volcanic island is erupting!
  44. Seals follow the boat for a while.
  45. A giant koi fish (river) or whale shark (sea) lazily circles the boat, then flips down to the depths
  46. A GIANT WHALE APPEARS!
    1. Takes a chunk of the boat
    2. Bumps the boat off course
    3. leaps over the boat and hits the mast on its way
    4. smacks the boat with its tail doing damage
  47. The waves grow choppy and the wind picks up. Unless intentionally slowing the boat, you get to your destination faster, but your boat might take damage
  48. The bard begins to play a sea shanty. You all join in and have a great time
  49. A massive, huge, giant, monsterous shark fin is seen. It then disappears without a trace
  50. A Blue Whale (100+ feet long) breaks the water and bumps the boat
  51. A Megalodon bites the stern of the boat, requiring repairs 2x. Trip is delayed by a few hours.
  52. The sea grows calm. No magic works. Then, just as suddenly, the wind picks up, magic starts up, everything is normal
  53. You see something sparkling on the beach of a small uncharted island.
  54. You see something sparkling on an uncharted island. Its a message in a bottle
  55. You pass by an uncharted island and see a fire. Its a marooned pirate, someone lost, nothing.
  56. An albatross takes a rest on your boat for a while, then flies off
  57. You see circling seagulls off in the distance. When you arrive there, there are some floating barrels with a dead body lashed to it, rum inside, food inside, repair supplies inside, cannonballs inside, treasure inside, an animal inside, barely clinging to life, a castaway bobbing in a barrel. You see a crate in the water. It has cannons, wood, food, ale, plants, silks, spices, sugar, a note atop showing a delivery island that is where you came from, the island you're going to, an island near it, an island you've never heard of, an island that Nobody has ever heard of.
  58. A giant squid comes near the surface near the boat to warm up in the sun. Curious about your presence, it follows your ship for several hours before disappearing back into the depths.
  59. A dragon swoops by, catching a ton of fish in its mouth, then flying away
  60. A dragon attacks the ship, but is shown to be an illusion. You dont know from where it came.
  61. Baba yaga, but it's an outpost on a rock
  62. Giant hippocampus swims next to the boat and tries to get the party to throw it treats.
  63. You fall off the ship! Before you can cry out the ship is already sailing on its way and you are lost overboard. Just as you begin to despair, a friendly merfolk swims up and asks if you need help. If you explain what happened, they kindly offer to return you to the ship.
  64. As you keep watch, you look over the side. Roll a percentage dice. (1-10, 90-100 its real) you see a small creature tearing out boards to the side of the ship! Then as you look they vanish, and you hear a commotion from the other side of the boat.
  65. A group of sea elves herding whales ask for help locating a missing calf
  66. While sailing at night, the ship passes through a patch of bioluminescent algae
  67. The ship gets lost in a magnetic field anomaly which causes their compass to spin wildly. A DC 17 survival check will get them out but off course. A 20 or higher will get them out while maintaining the proper course
  68. A merchant vessel: a vessel that is a small market place, stocking rope, lantern oil, medical supplies, preserved foods, and other ship-borne essentials, maybe weapon maintenance, potions of healing and water breathing, that kind of thing. put some guards on it: a blackguard, a champion, and a warlord.
  69. You encounter a Kelp Forest, a portion of the sea where the Kelp stalks stretch high above the waves, at least 40 to 50 feet. Who knows what kind of beasts might linger in the fog, nesting amongst the broad leaves and seed pods.
  70. A pod of whales swims along side the submersible, a sudden wave lunges the sub to one side as a Roc dives into the water and grabs a whale. The roc's flapping and thw whales panic make for extremly difficult seas and the crew of the sub will needs to sucseed in a skill challenge to prevent catostophic failure of the machine.
  71. An Iceberg that has been carved to be an Ice lich fortress on its underside sawrms with undead such as Merpires and Great Wight Sharks. The Party will have to find ways to make their vessal steathy or face a dire situation. (If in warmer climes, the Iceberg can be replaced with a floating coral fortress and the Ice Lich with a Merpire (Merfolk Vampire) Lord.)
  72. The Party see a lake of dark liquid on the bottom of th sea bed. The substance is "Brine" super salty water that is low in oxygen, only the most hard bacteria can survive in it. it is used by many subnautical peoples as a holy sight to entomb their dead. . . Often with gold and pearls. When the Party are down in the lake, somethng knocks on the hatch.
  73. The party comes across an abandoned ship, it’s in perfect condition and the party can’t tell why it’s been abandoned
  74. You come across a huge abyssal plane of downed airships on the ocean floor after a dogfight. The ghosts all come to you to help them get home.
    1. home (denial)
    2. travel
    3. ascend
    4. seize (haunt/poltergeist)
  75. A methane vent on the ocean floor causes anything in the area to sink at 10’ per round.
  76. The lookout can see multiple sources of light below the water. If the party investigates they find a small village of sea people living in bubbles 100 meters below the surface. The bubbles contain oxygen and are possible to move through but also stand on.
  77. You meet another ship, a merchant ship. However, you are informed that this particular ship used to be quite known for his crew and their deals … Until they sank 2 years ago
  78. The ship is run aground on a sandbank (more plausible in archipelagos/shallow waters), so the players must find a way to dig the ship out or use enough force to push off from the bank (but not too much force to break the ship!)
  79. You pass ovearound an island recently submerged underwater by rising sea levels (natural or otherwise). The tops of trees and buildings peak over the lapping waves, and if you glance down and squint you can make out the signs of a civilisation eradicated; fish swimming about abandoned hovels, overturned carts floating by, and even the occasional ghost wandering down dead roads.
  80. Far in the distance, you can make out a naval battle raging. The distant thunder of cannons and a faint smell of brimstone linger in the air. Eventually one ship keels over, sinking beneath the waves.
  81. A half-sunken ship containing a hag. She'll promise them anything they want in exchange for safe passage back. Obviously a monkeys paw scenario, helps a lot with the overtly good paladins etc
  82. Found a floating city made from various buoyant materials.
  83. Found a Djinn in a bottle.
  84. Meet a trading Merfolk, selling anything they found on the seabed.
  85. A dormant ship floating on the sea during the day. When checked, all the ship's crew are vampires, sleeping.
  86. Your ship sails into a big area of thick, sticky gloop, stopping the ship's motion, trapping any oars submerged into the gloppy mass, and clogging up any rudders. How are you going to get out of this one? gargantuan sea-gelatinous cube!?
  87. A Triton appears before your submersible anf flashes a big message, word by word, using Minor Illusion: "STOP!" "MIGRATING" "KRAKEN!" "TURN" "BACK" "NOW!"
  88. A long riverboat is seen at the mouth of a river pouring into the sea. A closer investigation reveals it is a casino boat!
  89. A ship rolls up on you, but it's someone going where you are and they challenge you to a race to get there. No magic can be used, some magic, all bets are off. They wager gold, a piece of information, a magic item. They are true to their word, they sail away, they attempt to destroy the ship, they vanish as you approach the island (they're ghosts) and you find the reward in the captains quarters.
  90. You come across a large bed of giant clams/shellfish. They make for good eating and have several big pearls in them.
  91. One foggy night you hear ghostly pirate shanties being sung over the waves. In the fog you can barely make out the black shape of a ghost ship before it disappears.
  92. You spot a large kraken corpse with massive bite marks on it. Who could possibly do this damage?
  93. While traveling through a kelp forest you see a raft of giant sea otters. Killing them for their fur will net you a ton of money at a market but is it worth earning the ire of a local sea goddess for doing it?
  94. In the distance you sea a newly form volcano spewing out fire elementals to battle water elementals rising from the sea to snuff out the volcano.
  95. A giant Octopus is tending their coral garden. They offer gold in exchange for seaweeds from far off places to put in their garden.
  96. Has anyone featured an encounter with black smokers yet? Vents from the planets mantel spewing out pressurized boiling gas, causing pillars of what looks like black smoke underwater and a huge diversity of life that is strange and alien. You could combine that with a giant Bobbit worm made of smoke poking out of a portal to the elemental plane of fire. this is a vague idea.
  97. Maybe come across some merfolk torturing a sapient giant electric eel, they are doing so to capture electricity that powers a magic artifact that keeps a merfolk child alive. free the eel and the child dies. leave it and a living thinking creature is tortured slowly to death.
Bonus: Combat Encounters 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.
Edit 1: General comment about struggling with sub-lists. This got deleted in the great silliness of 11:30p on 7/11/2020 (see edit 2).
Edit 2: Well. Dang. That will teach me to edit and post only on a web form without a back up copy I had 78 things with complex lists for some of them and accidentally saved over them and lost all of that data. I'll have to redo it. Please don't down vote me in the meantime. I spent like 5 hours on it this afternoon and I'm devastated that I lost it all...
Edit 3: I've made a simple redo of the 5 hours of work and saved it elsewhere. It does not reflect the synthesizing of comments and repeats, the separating of combat from non-combat in people's suggestions, the removing of cuss words, the grammatical edits, or the embellishing that I did. I plan to do that in the next couple of days, but here is something in case you were counting on this list like tomorrow or something. Please note that the numbers may change on entries and if you comment on a specific entry, you may want to quote some of the content too. There are 20 of these that were originally combined, moved into combat, or otherwise not included in version 1.

So I managed to think like a child and I think I figured some things out. I think I know what "brave and in the wood" mean now.

Full disclosure: I was very high when I had this realization (it's legal here), but as dumb as it is, I also feel like it has some merit. Also before I begin I want to assert that I think that "hear me all and listen good" is meant to be taken literally. I think we are meant to be thinking about the words as they are written but also as they sound when spoken aloud.
 
In fact, I think "listen" may be the word that is key or whatever.
 
I've had many partial solves I've flirted with over the years but nothing that made me confident enough to actually plan a trip to go search. The way Forrest spoke about the solution I always assumed it was a definite thing, in that once you had it, you knew you had it. I figured there must be confirmations built into the poem. I also figured the poem would have to work on a few different levels if it was actually solvable.
 
Most of my early solves were also in Yellowstone and the surrounding areas but as the chase went on I started to broaden my horizons and include other states, but now I think that was wrong, and I'll explain why. I think the poem itself excludes most of the original search area and actually narrows it down quite a lot.
 
Ok, so one thing that Forrest said that always stuck with me was him trying to get room #4 when he stayed at The Dude Motel. I think it's a giant raging clue about him as a person and about the way he thinks.
 
Think about it. What is a motel room for? All dirty mindedness aside, it's FOR REST. If you you had to pick a room to rest in and you were Forrest which would you pick? You would pick 4, because out of the 16 rooms number 4 is the FOUR-EST one you could get. If they had had 50 rooms total, I bet he would try to get 44 rather than 4, because between those two numbers, 44 is more FOUR-ISH than 4 and of the two it's the FOUR-EST you could pick.
 
4--four.
44--four-er.
444--four-est.
 
Forrest said to marry the poem to the map so let's make a ring out of 4's. Let's treat 44°44'44" as a ring because that's what it is, a ring that extends all the way around the globe. We only have one ring though, and you need two to hear wedding bells. But with one we can at least propose!
 
I believe that when the poem says "in the wood", it means somewhere in the 44th parallel. Anywhere in the 44th parallel is the fourest, and if you're in the forest, you're in the wood. I think I know what brave means too, though I'm less certain. But I'll get to that in a minute.
 
Anyways, just this narrows down the search area dramatically. It pretty much only leaves Yellowstone, and parts of southern Montana in play. It also would allow for parts of Idaho too, but thankfully Forrest already ruled that out for us.
 
Now I realize that it probably wasn't on 44°44'44" exactly, though it could have been. But I feel like if you had a solve within 200' or 500' of this line and you didn't check it specifically, you left a stone un-turned.
 
So, just for fun let's look at 44°44'44" and see where it takes us. On earth.google.com turn on grid lines under map styles.
 
Here we have the area south of Hebgen that Forrest has talked about extensively. This is right near or through the area that he went that summer to cut timber. This is around where the pine needle coffee story happened. This time was very important to Forrest.
 
Here is that same area, but look, that truck must obviously belong to a searcher that had the same idea! OMG is that a fire circle just south of him? It's the blaze lol! KIFFLOM BROTHER BROTHER
 
This one is a bit special! The line here runs through the forest just south of Grebe lake, a place we know to have been important to Forrest. The special part is, that area between the forest and the lake itself, I'm pretty sure that's a fen, making this one of, if not THE four-est fen on the planet.
 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fen
 
It runs through many more places, it crosses the Madison, it cuts through the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. If you had a solve in this area go see if it was near by for fun.
 
But, personally I don't think it was at any of these places. Maybe the first area south of Hebgen, but I'm working out another idea.
 
So, like I said, I think "in the wood" at it's broadest meant 44 degrees latitude. Now let's talk about brave and what that means.
 
The line is' "if you are brave and in the wood". I believe this is either the eighth clue, or half of the ninth. In fact, in order to understand this clue, you have to go back to the very beginning, just like the allusions from T.S. Eliot poem, so let's do that.
 
If you are brave and in the wood...
As I have gone alone in there, and with my treasures bold...
 
He ties the idea of being alone with being brave or bold. Alone is the trick here. If you are alone, you are the ONLY ONE in there. In fact minus one L, alone could be split into AL(L) ONE. Look! Another number.
 
Since we're playing with coordinates anyway let's plug 1's into longitude. 1 alone puts you in the UK. 11 is in Ireland. But if we do ALL ONE's we're suddenly back in the Yellowstone area. It starts at it's western edge, and encompasses all of the West Yellowstone area. An area that we know Forrest spent a lot of time in. Looking for Lewis and Clarke was here. The pine needle coffee was here. Hebgen lake is here. West Yellowstone and The Dude are here.
 
I think brave and in the wood are like street directions. I.e. meet me at the corner of Brave and In the wood. I think warm waters halt and take it in the canyon down might also behave like this. I don't think that's all there is to it, and it must obviously be narrowed down further.
 
TL;DR: I believe "brave" means anywhere from 111° to 111°59'59" degrees longitude, and "in the wood" means anywhere from 44° to 44°59'59" degrees latitude. The key to one eyed willy was weed all along. 420°findtheBLAZEit.
Just in writing this, I think I've got a better understanding of where warm waters halt and how to get a starting point from that.
I think that no paddle up your creek is a bad joke but also kind of elegant if it means what I think it means.
I think I know what heavy loads means now, but water high escapes me still.
I have a new solve to write that can never be proven lol.
I secretly always wished it was in the Fossil Forrest in Yellowstone, because it would be funny. One day in the distant future someone could trip over Forrest's fossil in the Fossil Forrest.

Broadcast Engineering programs are dropping like flies... what's left?

Hello all... so I kinda missed a number of boats in the last 6 years...
Broadcast Engineering Technology @ Loyalist College in Belleville, ON was retired in 2015.

I Emailed the coordinators at the remaining SBE certified schools and the remaining programs granting CBT status were also currently in limbo. Even then, some of them don't grant a degree/diploma that explicitly states broadcast/video/audio engineering.
https://www.sbe.org/sections/cert_schools.php
The only program that still appears to be available is Broadcast Engineering at Cleveland Institute of Electronics which I'm actually about 2/3 of the way through.
I'm aware of the AVIXA, CIE, SBE, SCTE, SMPTE, NAB, IABM, Extron, Kramer courses etc...
I'm also aware of the Video Engineering certificate program from Mt. SAC in Walnut, CA.
https://catalog.mtsac.edu/programs/programsaz/television/video-engineering-certificate/
But does any University or College still offer an A.S/B.S in this field with special attention to video and audio TECHNOLOGY courses?
If anyone has any direct recommendations, I'd really appreciate it! I regret with all my heart not doing BXST and BET when I had the chance!

[OC] An insight in the world of football kits - 454 teams that play in the most unusual colors

I would like to start with a humble warning, that this will be a longer than "usual" post. Hopefully, it will compensate with the amount of information you might deem as interesting. :)

After finishing my first journey into the world of colors in football, by counting which teams play in red & black color combination, I decided to pursue my next curiosity:
How many football teams in the world play in unusual colors?
By this, I was thinking of teams which have a “main” color that is rarely used (grey, brown, purple, pink, etc.) or use an uncommon color combination.
Because of this coronavirus madness that is going on, I was able to spend more hours for this project than I planned, so in the end I was able to go into almost every single league in the world. I checked teams from over 400 divisions, of different tiers, from all continents. Although it’s not an official list, I tried to include as many clubs as possible on it.
Now, you're probably asking yourself "How do you measure how rare or how common is in football a color / combination of colors?"
An exact answer is impossible to give, so I started the study using my own experience as a football supporter, finally finding an useful purpose for the thousands of hours spent on watching football games. Therefore, I used a subjective point of view and excluded the color combinations that I, personally, considered to be the most common in football teams, namely:

The selection criteria for the teams were as follows:
  1. The team should have their main kit in colors which are different than the ones enumerated above;
  2. The team must have played or been associated with the colors for several seasons;
  3. The team should be currently active (dissolved clubs were not included).

But enough introduction, let’s jump straight into the list of the most uncommon kit colors in the world of football:

Online gambling legislation and regulation. Starting your own gambling product.

Online gambling legislation and regulation. Starting your own gambling product.

Mobile gambling
If you plan to develop an app with the ability to deposit and withdraw real money, then such a product automatically falls into the category of gambling and you will need to license your business for successful operation.
Mobile and Web Based Apps
So let’s talk about the different kinds of online gambling apps available on web and mobile. We’ll be covering both free-play gaming apps and real money casino app games you can find for iOS, Android devices and web browsers.
Mobile gambling is more common for poker, casino, bingo, and skill games. They have advantages in terms of a low barrier to enter the market, instant liquidity, product knowledge, and marketing expertise, minimal infrastructure costs, and the ability to bring a brand to the market quickly. Consequently, this form of gambling does not sit neatly with jurisdictional boundaries. Multiple gambling opportunities are available, including betting on various events and markets, in a relatively simple format. Gambling products can also be integrated into betting on television shows or virtual racing and sports games as well as offering lotteries, bingo, poker and casino games.
Most Popular Gambling Apps
Sports betting, casino, poker and lotteries are the most popular forms of online gambling. However, other forms are available too. These include the following: Bingo, slot machines, different card games, roulette and other game of chance. One of the best things about online gambling and betting apps is the number of choices you have.

Sports Betting

Betting means making or accepting a bet on the outcome of a race, competition, or other event or process, the likelihood of anything occurring or not occurring, or whether anything is or is not true. Today most sports betting is done via mobile-friendly sites and apps.
Today most sports betting is done via mobile-friendly sites and apps.
The introduction of live betting for sports like soccer and tennis means that bettors who are sitting inside stadiums watching games can now pick up their mobile devices and find real-time betting value with the best sports gambling apps. This has really unlocked a door to the future of sports gambling and the popularity of online gambling apps.

Poker

Many sites offer free poker, where no real money is wagered, although in some cases players can accumulate credits that can be exchanged for prizes. This is the case why people are going to play for real money. There is an ongoing debate over whether poker should be classified as a game of chance or skill. The parameters of legal poker playing are still unclear and differ between jurisdictions. Since you are not gambling with money, I’m pretty sure under the law it’s just a video game for now.

Blackjack

Blackjack is the game of choice to many high-rollers and do you know why? Because blackjack is a challenging, logic and skill-based game where your thinking, strategy, and calculations determine the outcome of the game.

Bingo

Bingo is one of the most popular and socially accepted games in the world. Bingo is a traditional form of gambling that has seen considerable innovation in recent years. It is also the only form of gambling recognized in the Gambling Act that does not have a specific statutory definition, the Act providing simply that “bingo” means “any version of that game, irrespective of by what name it is described”. Bingo must be played as an equal chance game. For game to be classed as “bingo” it must meet the Act’s definition of “equal chance gaming” (as opposed to casino gaming). Thus, it: must not involve playing or staking against a bank, and must be a game in which the chances are equally favorable to all participants in the sense that each ticket or chance has the same probability of success as any other.
Licensed bingo is a well-regulated and socially responsible form of gambling that takes place in a safe environment. Many sites offer multiple forms of bingo with different features, types of games, and costs of play. These sites often cater specifically for women and some research suggests that they may appeal to markets who would not typically engage in traditional forms of gambling.

Slots

Slot machine is one of the most beloved game among the gambling community and it has been a part of the industry for a long time. They provide fun and entertainment and their simplicity allows gamers to start playing at once. This can play out in different ways depending on the machine you’re playing. For instance, there’s Pick a Fortune, a five-reel, 20 line game that puts players right in the studio of a television game show, including the potential to play a Deal or No Deal-style bonus round. A super trend over the past few years is mobile-friendly slot games. These apps and websites were developed to enable players to enjoy their favorite games on their smartphones at any time. Another dominant slot trend is licensed branded slots that are based on popular movies, television, and musicians.
Virtual Money vs Real Money
Let’s find out the difference between social gambling and real money gambling, as well as the differences between gambling through apps and gambling through a web browser. It can be quite confusing trawling through all the casinos, slots, and lotteries available, both through your mobile web browser as well as through mobile app stores, in the form of downloadable apps.

Virtual money

The main difference between virtual money and real money gambling is that the in-game virtual currency in social games and gambling-type games is used only like credits that are not paid out as winnings or anything given to player in cash, making these games exempt from gambling regulations.
Virtual money is loaded on user game accounts via in-app purchases in mobile applications or the game balance funding from a card via web based applications.

Real money gambling

Real money gambling via your mobile device is only allowed in countries where laws have been passed that allow for this type of gambling online, or there are no laws in place that prevent it. The payment systems are the legal way of services payment in the gambling app, performing as the intermediary between the gambling facility and the client. With their help, users replenish deposits and withdraw funds to personal accounts in financial institutions. If the application uses the payment system of a well-known brand, that gives players additional confidence in the resource. Nowadays, there is a wide range of payment systems, some of which operate all over the world, other systems are oriented towards the citizens of one or several countries. A number of services accept money of different world currencies, while others allow currency transactions of one state only.
What is an Online Gambling Licensing
The internet has a global audience, there’s no single piece of legislation that covers the legality of online gambling for the entire world. Mobile gambling doesn’t typically accept customers from every single country in the world. It often focuses on certain specific regions.
Instead, most countries have their own local laws that deal with the relevant legal and regulatory issues.
Ultimately, questions of legality all go back to the location of the casino or where the website operates out of. In closed regulatory systems, such as Italy, France, and the Netherlands, licenses, and advertising rights are limited to domestic providers, which must be located within their country’s geographical boundaries and these are only permitted to offer some types of products. Some jurisdictions, for example, Norway, Sweden, and Canada legalize and regulate online gambling, but this is limited to a single site that is owned by the government. Under such an approach, the government becomes the operator and regulator and all revenues are returned to the government.
Remote gambling is generally permitted. That means that an operator that is licensed may provide gambling services to citizens in the country via all forms of remote communication (and using equipment that may be located in the country or abroad). Equally, a remote operator may be licensed to offer gambling services to citizens in any jurisdiction in the world using equipment located in the country. The law provides that, for each type of gambling (betting, gaming, and participating in a lottery), there will be two forms of license available: remote and non-remote forms (land-based). If you provide facilities for remote gambling, online or through other means, and advertise to consumers you will need a license from the licensing jurisdictions or local licensing authorities. Before an online gambling site signs up its first customer, before it accepts its first bet before the first card is dealt, it must be licensed by a recognized governmental entity.
Certain regions in the world have specific legislation in place that allows them to license and regulate companies that operate online gambling sites or provide industry services (such as the supply of gaming software). These regions are referred to as online gambling jurisdictions or licensing jurisdictions.
Depending on what type of entertainment you are going to implement in your internet establishment, you will have to apply for the corresponding permissions. Online gambling laws in Europe vary from one country to the next. The industry is well regulated in some countries and less so in others. There are several online gambling jurisdictions located in Europe. Some of these are members of the European Union (EU), and thus subject to the various rules and regulations of that body, while others are independent. Each of these jurisdictions has an authority that’s responsible for approving gambling sites for licenses that enable them to offer their services legally. They also regulate their licensees.
Countries that Provide Gambling Licensing
Today there are lots of licensing jurisdictions located all over the world and offering different terms for their customers. Depending on the country, licenses can be local, international (distributed in several countries), have a different set of documents for registration, costs of registration and further support, various operating conditions and other special details.

Which gambling license is both internationally recognized?

The government of Ireland offers casino operators, software, and service providers in the gambling industry, with a gambling license that allows gambling operators to conduct business related to casino, lotto, and other gaming-related activities. Ireland Gambling License is one of the most popular license for online casinos worldwide. Ireland has long been recognized as one of the preferred locations for Online Gambling operators to base their operations. This success has been due to a combination of factors, such as a progressive legislative system, political stability, first-rate telecommunications facilities, and a well established financial services industry. A wide range of gambling sites operates out of Ireland including sports betting, casino sites, poker, bingo, and more.
In stark contrast, the UK is the largest regulated market for online gambling in the world, and corporations are already comfortable exploiting the intersections of gambling and gaming, betting in-play, social gaming, Bitcoin, financial trading and spread betting, betting exchanges, e-sports and, most profitably, mobile gambling. 40% and 60% of online gambling in the UK took place in Gibraltar.

International licensing

Europe is home to the following online gambling jurisdictions: Alderney, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Malta. Malta is currently the country that is most accommodating to gambling companies, and the license offers whitelisted online gambling in sports and casino games in many European territories. But takes an extreme amount of time in paperwork and background checks. Also, you pay 5% of all your gross profit to the EU.
Among countries offering gambling licensing services, the attention should be paid to Curaçao jurisdiction, which is considered to be one of the most promising for the online gaming business.
Curaçao Internet Gaming Association (also known as Curaçao eGaming) is both a regulator and a licensor, and its licensing works worldwide except Curaçao itself, USA, France and Netherlands. Using Curacao as an example, let us examine in detail the process of obtaining a license, the necessary documents and expenses.
How to get a License on Curaçao
  • Documents necessary for company registration:
  • criminal record;
  • passport scans;
  • bank account confirmation;
  • documents proving payments for utility services.
After the company is registered, an operator can apply for the license providing the following documents:
  • a document certifying the right of domain possession;
  • description of games planned to be used in the project;
  • a list indicating countries of potential operation;
  • illustration of server locations to be used in the project;
  • a copy of the agreement with a software provider.
Gambling license cost:
  • Bank account opening $1000
  • Company registration $3600
  • Company management per year $3600
  • Application processing fee $1000
  • License fee per year $4800
  • Equipment/software fee starting from $1500
  • Server maintenance per year $6000
Apart from that pay for technical support and maintenance every year. The entire license issuing process takes between 2-4 weeks. Curacao Internet Gaming Association (CIGA) also has the power to review a license and, if it finds that an operator has breached a license condition, has the power to impose a range of sanctions including revocation of the license.
Apple and Google Gambling Rules
You’ll be surprised at the limited number of real money gambling app options available on the AppStore and Google Play Store. Most real money casino gaming is done through gambler’s mobile web browsers and not through mobile gambling apps that you’ll find for iPhone and Android phones. Apple allows online gambling applications in a few forms, and not just in places where it is explicitly permitted. They do not allow any payments through the applications – those have to be done on the websites. Apple has far stricter developer guidelines for iOS apps than Google does for Android apps, so it’s fine to assume that whatever you choose to download from iTunes is usually safe, secure, and meets a certain standard.
Any real money casino in the iTunes app is required to have proper licensing and permissions before Apple will approve the app for use or downloads. While Google Play is technically regulated, it is much more loose in what can be hosted.

Apple Store

Gambling, gaming, and lotteries can be tricky to manage and tend to be one of the most-regulated offerings on the App Store. Apple has rules for apps that support real money wagering, including sports betting and poker. Those apps and lotteries must have necessary licensing and permissions in the locations where the App is used, must be geo-restricted to those locations, and must be free on the App Store, and Apple rate even simulated gambling apps as appropriate only for users 17-years-old and up.

Play Store

Google keeps the reigns tight. To be able to successfully upload apps to the Google Play store, developers need to have a valid license for the specific countries they are targeting and comply with their regulations. The app must be free to download and must prevent under-age users from gambling in the app. As a final precaution, all gambling apps are required to display prominent information regarding responsible gambling practices. This brings its policy in line with the Apple App Store.
Countries where gambling is illegal
It is also important to remember that while gambling is growing rapidly in many places, in others it is totally or partially prohibited. As well as in the majority of the US, sports betting is illegal in India, Pakistan, and China, three of the largest gambling markets in the world. Most countries have rules against gambling. Almost all Islamic countries prohibit gambling of every kind, but many turn a blind eye to online gambling or simply do not have regulations in place for this grey area.
In the United Arab Emirates, however, any kind of gambling is prosecuted. National lotteries are the only legal forms of wagering on the Asian country’s mainland. Cambodia, North Korea strictly forbids online and offline gambling amongst its own citizens but allows tourists to participate in these activities.
Qatar is the strictest country of all when it comes to gambling laws. All forms of gambling activities are considered illegal, and even sports betting is not permissible.
Starting your own gambling product
Numerous online casino platforms in the market offer fantastic casino games like bingo, poker, roulette, and many more.
If you have an idea, but don’t know where to start, we advise you begin with a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) to pilot your proof of concept for investors. MVP spotlights your core features and lets your investors know there are bigger and better things to come.
For MVP you do not need a large team, just a few people are enough to create a fully functioning prototype. In the case of successful numbers of your prototype, the further development of a full-fledged product will require more team, resources and time, however you will be sure that your development and your costs will pay off.

Comeon Casino Welcome Bonus & Free Spins

ComeOn Casino – Make a Move, Your Turn!

Based on the beautiful island of Malta, ComeOn! is servicing thousands of players from the EU. Following their move out of the UK, we have seen the casino head to other corners of the world, including India. Besides offering casino games, ComeOn! also has a sportsbook and Poker tables. You do not need a separate account to place sports bets, the casino account should do the trick. Our ComeOn Casino review covers all aspects, including the casino game offer, the customer service, the payment options and the withdrawal policy and the bonuses, including welcome bonus offers and loyalty rewards. It comes with more pros than it has cons, and we’re going to talk about both of them.

Sign Up & Welcome Bonus at ComeOn! Casino

If you’re on a hunt for a generous welcome bonus, you won’t find it at ComeOn! Casino. It’s a modest bonus of 100% up to €25. Players from certain countries also get some Casino Spins on the side, but they’re not overwhelming. In order to trigger the bonus, players need to deposit at least €10, and this deposit cannot be made using Skrill, Neteller or Paysafecard. You HAVE TO obtain a different payment method, other than the ones we just mentioned. This applies to all new players.
Following the recent launch of ComeOn India, the casino has gone through some changes. The welcome bonus for the rest of the world may be subdued but players from this region have it slightly better. Then again at 100% up to INR 10,000, it's far from spectacular. For what it's worth, here's the ComeOn! Casino welcome bonus offer looks for various markets.
The welcome bonus money carries 35 times the bonus wagering requirements. In other words, players need to wager the bonus amount 35 times before they can request a withdrawal. ComeOn! India players are subject to 34 times the deposit and bonus amounts.
Don’t let the modesty of the welcome bonus be your concern. There are tons of bonuses down the road, which will become available to you once you lose your “new player” tag.
Lastly, not all bets contribute the same towards the completion of the wagering requirements. Currently, only slot games will get you closer to a player's balance free from any wagering requirements.
  • Slot Games – 100% (not all of them)
This makes ComeOn! Casino a great destination for slot players, whereas table game players who prefer playing with bonus money can check the similar casinos we’ve listed below this review.

Ongoing Promotions at ComeOn! Casino

In all honesty, we don’t like seeing both the casino and the sports betting bonuses bundled together. Yes, this makes the promotions page richer, but it also makes it more confusing for players who are new to the online gaming community. In spite of this, we can confirm that there are quite a lot of bonus deals down the road. For starters, bonus players can resort to claiming a bonus offer from the promotions page, or subscribe to the ComeOn! Casino newsletter and get the latest news about both current and upcoming bonus deals. Nevertheless, it’s not a popular destination for big time bonus players.
The ComeOn! Casino shop is where you’ll find Free Money Bonuses and Reload Deposit Bonuses. Players from India will know this as the ComeOn! Bazaar section. You can exchange your “hard-earned” points for additional bonuses. We’re against this approach of rewarding players. Comp points should have a different purpose. There should be a continuous stream of ongoing reload bonuses. “Buying” bonus deals just doesn’t make sense.

Licensed, Tested to Deliver Perfection

It’s not a shining online casino from a bonus player perspective, but it still is a legit, fair online casino licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority. They also used to be licensed by the UK Gambling Commission but 2019 saw the casino site move out of this region. This hasn't stopped ComeOn! from keeping up with the trends and the security standards. After all, the online gaming market is extremely competitive, and this is the only way to go if they want to endure the rivalries which are inevitable. We have actually seen them move into new emerging markets. ComeOn! India, for instance, is definitely up and coming.
The ComeOn Casino adheres to a privacy policy, and it also features a responsible gaming control mechanism, which allows players to truly enjoy online gaming, without worrying if they’re breaking the bank. These are highly recommended. Player protection is of paramount importance. Nevertheless, there’s a KYC policy and you will be asked to verify your identity. This procedure is mandatory in all legit online casinos and it’s for your own good.
Lastly, underage online gaming is a big no! All players must be 18+.

ComeOn! Casino Payment Options and Withdrawal Policy

Credit and debit card deposits come with a fee of 2.5%, whereas e-wallets come with a fee of staggering 5%. The minimum deposit amount is €10 or other currency equivalents for all deposit methods, and the maximum is €1,000 for all of them except Paysafecard which comes with a limit of €100 max.
You can deposit using the common VISA, VISA Electron, VISA Debit, MasterCard, Maestro or e-wallets like Skrill, NETeller to name a few. Almost all payment methods are available to mobile players, with the exception of NETeller, WebMoney, and Skrill. Regardless, the payment method range is extensive enough to meet the needs of all types of players coming from any corner of the globe. Then again, with the casinos efforts to move into new markets, we wouldn't be surprised to see them stretch their portfolio even further. MuchBetter, for instance, would go down a treat with ComeOn! India players.
All players can make 2 withdrawals for free in any 30 day period. Additional withdrawals carry a fee of €5. We recommend verifying your identity and your payment method (if applicable) as soon as possible if you want to benefit from short withdrawal times. ComeOn has made this as convenient as possible, allowing players to do this themselves without customer support assistance.

Great Mix of Great Online Games!

If you take a closer look at the game library, you’ll notice that the top 5 casino game providers are present in ComeOn! Casino. You can enjoy games produced by Microgaming, NetEnt, Playtech, Play’n Go, the one of a kind Yggdrasil, Evolution Gaming powers the Live Casino and you can even play Betsoft’s jackpots. The games range across all game categories like slots, progressive slots, table games, blackjack, baccarat, roulette and many more. In other words, ComeOn Casino provides the complete online gaming experience. A wide array of games can meet any taste, any player.
The game collection differs depending on the player location, but this has nothing to do with ComeOn. Instead, it’s closely related to the casino game provider license. Then again, we have seen efforts to make players from certain regions feel at home. ComeOn! Casino India, for instance, is home to Play'n GO's Pearls of India.
ComeOn features distinctive filters, which, although sounds amazing, in practice, they won’t take you anywhere. Besides the game categories, there are 4 Game Bundles titled Vegas Lovers, High Rollers, ComeOn! Classics and High Stakes. The titles are on point, but they could’ve added more of these. The idea is great, but the execution is poor, nonetheless.
The My Casino tab is a different matter. This is a strong indicator that ComeOn likes to cater loyal casino players. This tab shows the games that you’ve played the most, or as ComeOn says it, the games that mean little bit extra to you. The My Casino tab makes up for the other flaws we stated earlier.

ComeOn! Casino Mobile App – iOS, Android and Windows

The games that are compatible for mobile play or available to mobile players have a tiny cellphone icon at the top left corner of the thumbnail of the game. Rest assured, this game will be available to you if you access ComeOn! Casino with your smartphone or your tablet. Regardless of the operating system of the device, be that Android or iOS you will be able to access ComeOn! mobile casino.
It’s a dynamic, responsive mobile web app which we have to admit looks absolutely amazing. We have just one remark, the button and any other “clickables” are too tiny for our taste. Not that we have giant fingers or anything, they proved to be counterproductive. Yes, this makes the look good, but they should be functional as well.
What ComeOn Casino miss in the desktop version, is executed perfectly in the mobile casino. Can this be a lead for an upcoming desktop design update?
The custom filters we mentioned earlier are of great help. Here we also have Joker Games added along with Superhero Super-Slots where you can find Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, the Flash and the entire Justice League.

ComeOn! Live Casino Powered by Evolution

It’s a mix that can’t be matched by any other live casino provider, ComeOn Casino presents Evolution Gaming. They used to offer tables by Extreme Live Gaming but with a name like Evolution it was only a matter of time before they opted out. Only a few Live Dealer Table Games are a not available to mobile players. Evolution is continuously updating their interface to make the entire online gaming experience more pleasant, satisfying and overall to give players what they need the most.
Live Dealer Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, and a handful of Poker games are hosted. It’s up to you to choose what and where you will play. VIP tables are also provided where players can enjoy the high roller experience. We recommend Evolution’s VIP tables. In a way, it’s a matter of taste, and we don’t discuss tastes, do we?

ComeOn! Casino VIP & Loyalty

ComeOn Casino features a shop where players can exchange their comp points for free bonus money, casino spins or simply buy a reload deposit bonus that matches their criteria. You get Come On Points on a daily basis, just by logging in. Of course, if you play, you will earn significantly more comp points. The more you play, the more ComeOn points you earn. Make sure you’re playing within your limits, and try not to get carried away with the objective to earn more ComeOn points.
It doesn’t boast any details about the VIP programme, yet we’re positive there is one. There are signs of it in the terms and conditions. Apparently, ComeOn Casino likes it to be a surprise for any new players that join the club of the elite.

Live Support via Live Chat and Email

There’s live support, but it’s not available 24 hours a day. You can chat with some of ComeOn!’s representatives from 09:00-23:00 CET. Other methods to reach the customer support is to send them an email. The live chat should be your priority as its much faster, but if you’re in need of assistance out of the working hours you better send an email as soon as possible.
We like how ComeOn first offers a solution to a query, showing the player-related FAQs. To be honest, some of them are quite useful. Nonetheless, because there’s no phone support, players have to rely on the live chat, just because it takes fairly long to get feedback via email.
Another thing we don’t like is the positioning of the Help, Support buttons. It took us longer than usual to find them. Then again, this could just be us.

Available in Multiple Languages, ComeOn India - the Rising Star!

ComeOn! Casino has made it pretty clear what kind of players they’re looking for. For starters, any player that likes to truly tap into the full potential of ComeOn’s offer has to spend some time, longer than usual. In addition, taking into consideration the language and region options at ComeOn, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and Austria are targeted. Finnish players can also enjoy their favorite casino games in their native language.
Surprisingly, ComeOn! is available in Spanish, which is great for players from South America, such as Chile, Argentina, Peru and Mexico among others. Unfortunately, 2019 saw the online casino move out of the UK market and thus players from this region are no longer accepted. Then again, ComeOn! India is definitely up and coming. From what we have seen so far, we wouldn't be surprised if this was the next UK!

Any UMD clean/tweak the laser issue or replace the drive and make sure to screw it in from the outside iFixit should be useful for any tear downs. Also press the lever to test the laser to see if it turns on then your good. But if it doesn’t turn on with the disc in, then there is an issue with the tray. The metal tray has two prong make sure to bend them out a bit so that the tray can reach the lever.
Sega GameGear Black Screen/No Sound (Replace the caps with high quality caps like Nichicon and Panasonic caps. No power? replace the Q3 transistor on the power board with a 2SB1301 and clean the motherboard with isopropyl alcohol. Faulty screen Benn Venn, MCWILL, Chinese Suppliers sell modern replacement LCD’s for the Game Gear and the Lynx they make a huge difference in battery life, cooling and picture quality. If you want to save money you can replace the power hungry backlight bulb with an led backlight such as one from a DS Lite screen this would also increase battery life drastically and reduce heat.
Sega Saturn not reading discs/ black screen (Clean the laser with ipa, grease the rails with WD40. If the disc doesn’t move at all even with a new laser. Then replace the cd controller chip on the cd drive board. BA6798S chip you’ll have to desolder that and replace it. Sega Saturn uses an Optima 6S laser. As of current they are readily available and cheap i recommend buying an extra one in case the other one fails. To fix the black screen issue. I suggest replacing the PSU you can change it out for a Pico PSU. If you have a blown psu on your import Saturn replace the varistor and the fuse.
PC Engine/TurboDou i suggest replacing the caps any issues with reading discs adjust/clean the laser or replace it with a new HOP-M3 Laser.
Atari 5200 Controller not working (Replace the flex circuit or use a 3rd party controller if there are any. There is also an AV and power mod for the 5200. 11:13Atari 5200 Video and Power Mod -- Ditch the Switchbox!YouTube · This Does Not Compute31 Jan 2020
Atari Jaguar No power (Replace the U38 and Reg1 Chips i can’t remember what causes this issue but i think it is to do with using the wrong PSU Plug. There is also a mod to fix this issue from it happening again.
CD Era consoles 3DO, Sega CD, Amiga CD32, Atari Jaguar CD, Neo Geo CD it is most likely going to be a bad Capacitor, CD rails, LaseCD Drive chip issues.
If you want to save money search the models of the lasers to avoid resellers (Example Neo Geo CD Front LoadeSega Mega CD uses a KSS240 (A) Laser, Top loader Neo Geo CD uses a H8147AF Laser, Neo Geo CDZ uses a H8151AF laser, Sega CDX/MultiMega Consoles use a Sanyo SF-C93 laser, 3DO uses GDO101M, Amiga CD 32 uses either a KSS-210A or a KSS-210B)
Panasonic GameCube teardown/ PSX DVR harddrive failure If the PSX DVR has this fault then i’m afraid i can’t help you much. If somebody knows a way replace the HDD comment below. Prevention as of yet is your best bet. Just use FreeMcboot.

According to Ari Ben-Menashe (Israel's Ex-Military Intelligence Officer & Foreign Intelligence Advisor), Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell worked with Israeli Intelligence to run a Sexual Blackmail Enterprise for the purpose of entrapping powerful individuals and politicians in the United States and abroad. Former Israeli PM, Yitzhak Shamir also eulogized Ghislaine Maxwell's Father during his funeral, stating: “He has done more for Israel than can today be said."(2019):

Jeffrey Epstein has also invested millions of dollars in Carbyne, an Israeli start-up company in which former Israeli prime minister and current election candidate Ehud Barak is the controlling shareholder (2019):

ONE) 2001 - Israeli security company started by former Shin Bet Officers, ICTS controls security screening at U.S. Airports on 9/11. Directors include Yair Shamir, son of notorious Israeli who blew up the King David Hotel and was also involved in the Deir Yassin Massacre, Yitzhak Shamir.

From their company website it also states: maintained close working relationships with regulators, airports and airlines around the globe, this includes US, majority of their shares are also being sold in the US NYSE, their website also states that they provide airport ground services in the United States.
Take note that 19 Middle Easterners with Maces, Utility Knives and Pepper spray are allowed to pass through security on 9/11

TWO) July 2001 – Larry Silverstein gets lease for World Trade Center. Silverstein obtains lease thru agent Lew Eisenberg, chairman of the Port Authority. Silverstein and Eisenberg are both members of UJA board, major Zionist fundraising organization. Since 1996, Silverstein has close contact with Netanyahu; every Sunday afternoon Netanyahu calls Silverstein.

THREE) 9/11 – Odigo, an Israeli messaging company, coincidentally sent warnings to some israelis several hours before attacks.

Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen
FOUR) 9/11 – Five Israelis working for Urban Moving Systems are arrested on 9/11 after being seen photographing and celebrating the attack on the WTC. Owner fled to Israel after the incident.
Youtube, Forward, NYT, Haaretz
FIVE) 9/11 – Netanyahu on 9/11 atrocity to NYT: “It’s very good, well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy"..later he proceeded with "it'll strengthen the bond between our two peoples". In 2008, he says in Israel: "We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.

SIX) 9/11 – John Ashcroft puts Israeli dual-national Michael Chertoff in charge of 9/11 investigation. “For day-to-day decisions, Chertoff has the last word.”
Source
"Since the September 11th terrorist attacks, Chertoff's office has become the funnel for what is probably the most important criminal investigation in American history, as prosecutors and F.B.I. investigators pour in to seek the boss's approval. What leads can we use from the search of a hijacker's car in Portland, Maine? Where do the hijackers' credit-card records lead? Who are we holding on immigration charges? How long can we detain material witnesses? For day-to-day decisions, Chertoff has the last word."
"As it happens, Chertoff was the senior Justice Department official on duty at the F.B.I. command center right after the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and the experience has informed his subsequent actions."
SEVEN) 9/11 – Two Israeli-owned junkyards manage destruction and exportation of Steel from WTC using large ships bound for Asia able to load at Hugo Neu because the Claremont Channel has been dredged since 1999
Source
EIGHT) Post 9/11 - Judge Alvin Hellerstein manages 9-11 tort litigation, while his son is lawyer in Israel with firm that represents ICTS, key defendant in 9/11 litigation. Hellerstein dismisses ICTS and every 9/11 case is settled out of court.
