Gambling has traditionally been considered a “vice,” along with prostitution, illegal drugs, and pornography. In law enforcement, the term “vice” is often considered an inherently immoral activity, often accompanied by depraved, harmful behavior (John Stemberger).
Asmodeus is the name of the demon behind betting. He is the prince of demons in hell. Asmodeus represents lusts. (Terrezo2002 on Nairaland). He incites gambling, and is the overseer of all the gambling houses in the court of Hell.

The hole Canada's Denis Shapovalov dug for himself with early erratic play in #AustralianOpen quarterfinal was too deep as he fell to Rafael Nadal seeking a record 21st major title.

@DamoSpin with the match analysis:…
At the start, Shapovalov looked to be a thoroughly beaten player after losing the first two sets of the match against Spanish superstar Rafael Nadal.

He seemed out-of-sorts, serving poorly, volleying awkwardly, arguing with the chair umpire.…
At one point, after more arguing between Shapovalov and the umpire, Nadal approached the net for a brief chat with Shapovalov, and seemed to be trying to calm the irritated Canadian.

Then, the game flipped.…

I have seen a lot of discussions on #NFTs where people think of them as just some pixelated punk images which were made in the 90s, 3D render of apes to just very expensive JPEGS

It is not about the JPEG, there's more to it! 🌆

A thread on NFTs 👇🏼

Let's forget the image part of an NFT, owning an NFT would mean that you own a specific digital asset on the blockchain

A digital asset is the main focus, not the image

Being on the blockchain would mean that you or anyone in the world can see which wallet owns the digital asset

So everybody can check the owner but nobody can change it - obviously except the owner

Morning! Who doesn't love spending a Sunday in the federal Court with Chief Justice James Allsop, Justice Anthony Besanko and Justice David O’Callaghan. #NovakDjokovic
Here's where you can watch:

Some introductory remarks from CJ Allsop - he's suggeted given the quality of the written submissions, the hearing itself could be done by lunchtime. But he's not putting a time on it.

#BREAKING Immigration Minister Alex Hawke has cancelled Novak Djokovic’s visa “on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so”.
Here's the full statement:
There's probably three possible outcomes from here:

1: Djokovic accepts the decision and gets on a plane, giving up his chance of back-to-back #AustralianOpen wins.

All week I've had the Jeopardy think music going around in my head. Today it's that song from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.
Previously on the Novak Djokovic's #AustralianOpen saga:…
Independent senator Jacqui Lambie has suggested Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is "missing in action" as the world awaits a decision from him on Novak Djokovic's visa. From @domgiannini_ and @AndrewBrownAU…

I've never been so interested in Alex Hawke's movements, but here we are again - today's looking like decision day.

Worth keeping in mind the #AustralianOpen draw begins at 3pm (AEDT).
That should make things interesting. If the decision is to revoke Djokovic's visa and deport him, there's a good chance we'll be back in court - but whether that means the draw goes ahead without him, gets put on hold or has to be redone are all factors that'll come into play.
It's also possible though, given how things have unfolded, that he'll accept the decision and leave quietly. Maybe not quietly, but you know what I mean.

1. So, #Novax #Djokovic's family held a press conference, claiming the anti-vax tennis player was fighting for "personal choice".

Funny, I thought that this was about him fighting to be able to play in the #AustralianOpen.
2. But when the family was asked specifically about #Djokovic's public appearances on December 17th, the day after he found out he was COVID+ (FOR THE SECOND TIME!!!)...

Oh, well then, the family didn't want the attention of cameras anymore and adjourned the press conference.
3. It seems that the family has a distinct preference for unilateral communication during which they talk AT us.

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.
