    • MasterCard cuts ties with Backpage.com after pressure from law enforcement

      MasterCard will no longer allow its cards to be used in ad purchases on Backpage.com, following pressure for Illinois law enforcement, according to multiple reports.Backpage.com, a classifieds site similar to Craigslist, runs ads for a variety of things and includes an “adult” section with ads for escorts, “back rubs” and strippers, among other things. The site has been criticized by many forallegedly allowing pimps and sex traffickers to solicit sex anonymously.Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart sent a letter to both Visa and MasterCard Monday asking them to disallow use of their cards by patrons of the site. Cook County is the second most-populous county in the U.S. and Dart has beentracking solicitations for prostitution on the site for some time.According to the Wall Street Journal, in Dart’s letter to the two companies, he wrote that “we have objectively found [Web sites like Backpage] promote prostitution and facilitate online sex trafficking.”“I am calling on Visa and MasterCard to do the right thing — defund this criminal enterprise,” he said in his statement issued before Mastercard’s announcement, according the Chicago Tribune. “After years of unchecked growth in the online sex trade, it has become increasingly indefensible for any corporation to continue to willfully play a central role in an industry that reaps its cash from the victimization of women and girls across the world.”Dart has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning in order to discuss his efforts to work with the two credit card companies, the Tribune reported.MasterCard representatives told media outlets Tuesday that the company has strict rules against using their cards for “illegal or brand-damaging activities.”“When the activity is confirmed, we work with the merchant’s bank to resolve the situation,” said company spokesman Seth Eisen in a statement, according to USA Today. “Based on a request from Cook County Sheriff’s Office, we contacted Backpage’s acquiring bank about the issue. They have advised us that they are terminating acceptances at this time.”Multiple media outlets were unable to reach Visa for comment about Dart’s request to the company.American Express has already disallowed use of their cards on Backpage,according to USA Today.Dart’s office told Time Magazine that Backpage sells adult ads at prices in between $5 and $17. Those ads generate roughly $9 million a month, with 1.4 million ads for sex placed just this past April. If Visa also stops allowing use of their cards on the site, users will only be able to pay with Bitcoin.Former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Cramer told the Chicago Tribune that Dart’s actions were a “progressive” way to go after the site given the minimal legal restrictions on sites like Backpage.“It’s hard to solve this problem under the criminal code,” Cramer said. “People are buying ads, and the owners of the Web site aren’t theoretically doing anything illegal. They are providing a forum.”Bitcoin is their only solution now.

    • Brilliant Bengaluru FC sink Pune at Balewadi

      Shankar, Vineeth Score As Bengaluru Move Up To Third With Clinical 0-2 WinPune FC0''Bengaluru FC2Shankar 1', Vineeth 44'Shankar Sampingiraj scored the fastest goal in the club's history, tapping home on 14 seconds - as a clinical Bengaluru FC dismantled Pune FC 0-2 at the Balewadi Stadium, in Pune on Tuesday. The win that also had a scorcher of a finish from CK Vineeth a minute before half time sent Bengaluru FC to third on the table with 25 points, one behind Royal Wahingdoh who have played a game more than the Blues. Victory on the night also marked Bengaluru's first win in Pune in the LeagueThe dust hadn't even settled on kick-off when Bengaluru shocked the hosts with a goal on 14 seconds. Handed a start by the gaffer ahead of Sunil Chhetri, CK Vineeth wasted no time in vindicating the choice. The nippy winger charged and dispossessed Anas Edathodika before cutting the ball back for Lyngdoh whose cross Shankar met with the calmest of tap ins.Not satisfied with playing just a hand in Bengaluru's opener, Vineeth went one better and scored a scorcher of a goal a minute from half time. Picking the ball up after some smart pressing from Sean Rooney gave the Blues possession, Vineeth exchanged a quick one-two with Beikhokhei Beingaichho before smashing home a shot that 'keeper Amrinder Singh could do absolutely nothing about as it took a bit of the bar on its way in. Lyngdoh had one of the better chances in the second half when, just a little beyond the hour mark, he ghosted through the defence lines after being slid in by Chhetri, but was thwarted by an onrushing Amrinder.The less busy of the goalkeepers on the night, Lalthuammawia Ralte was pressed into a save on 78 minutes, doing well to keep out Prakash Thorat's shot from in the box.Westwood introduced Chhetri soon into the second half as the Blues held fort with relative ease. On in place of Rooney, the 30-year-old did well to set up shots for substitute Udanta Singh and again for Beingaichho.Pune's attempted forays into the final third were thwarted away without fuss by the defensive duo of Curtis Osano and John Johnson as the Blues held on for the 2-0 victory. Bengaluru next face Bharat FC at the Balewadi Stadium, in Pune, on Friday.http://bengalurufc.com/teamnews.php?id=181
