BGC adopts rules to limit social media gambling exposure

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The standards were first agreed by a working group formed by the Gambling Commission and led by Sky Betting & Gaming in April 2020. BGC adopts rules to limit social media gambling exposure 15th February 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Gambling industry body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has published a new rules to prevent ads for its members appearing in football clubs’ social media posts. Regions: UK & Ireland These look to have social media ads for gambling targeted only at those aged 25 and above where possible. Tags: Betting and Gaming Council “Football clubs are an important part of the sporting fabric of this country, followed by millions of all ages on social media,” BGC chairman Brigid Simmonds explained. The clubs will also be encouraged to apply the same controls to partnerships with operators that are not BGC members. Marketing regulation Promoted posts are exempted, however, as these can be targeted specifically at adults.center_img Topics: Marketing & affiliates Social responsibility Sports betting Marketing Marketing regulation CSR Responsible gambling Online sports betting The BGC has written to both the Premier League and the English Football League to make clubs aware of the rules. The rules aim to prevent under-18s from being exposed to gambling advertisements online. “Our members rightly have a zero tolerance approach to gambling by under-18s, so as an industry we are understandably concerned that children may be exposed to betting adverts on social media platforms. The BGC’s new rules follow a series of new marketing standards that were introduced last year. Furthermore, the association has requested Twitter and Facebook implement age-gating for all gambling ads on their platforms. They prohibit clubs from including calls to action or links to gambling websites on non-promoted social media posts. Bonus offers and odds are also prohibited.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter “Our new guidelines make clear the standards expected of football clubs when they post gambling promotions on social media, and I look forward to them being put into practice as soon as possible.” Email Addresslast_img read more

Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 25th December, 2020 See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay The oil industry was hammered at the beginning of 2020. Trouble had been brewing for several months before the turn of the year. Prior to the pandemic hitting, there was a coordinated drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s crude production sites, knocking out more than half its production capacity. A Saudi-Russia price war followed. Meanwhile, mounting geopolitical tensions between the US and China were inflating oil prices, creating wild volatility. But ultimately, the Covid-19 pandemic thwarted any signs of a recovery, sending oil prices plummeting. Oil stock prices followed, and many companies faced bankruptcy or becoming a takeover target. This made investors reluctant to buy oil stocks.Oil demand will returnIn the US, shale production ground to a halt as the oil price floated around the $40 mark for months. This led many US shale producers to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy and see their oil stock price burn. Meanwhile, the OPEC+ cartel made several attempts at keeping production down to stop the growing supply from mushrooming out of control. The catch-22 situation is, if the oil price stays above $50 for a reasonable time, US shale oil production comes back online. This creates a glut and again pushes the price down. But it’s not just the US—Saudi Arabia can produce oil cheaply, Libya has come back online, and Iran is threatening to. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The OPEC+ alliance is attempting to keep a level playing field, but all is not fair in business and oil, so it’s very difficult to manage. It has already cut its demand forecast for 2020 and projections for 2021 are lower too. Yet, recovery across Asia is showing a bullish projection for oil demand, which bodes well for a rising oil price.Oil stock price volatilityThe pandemic has crushed demand, for now. And peak oil may very well have passed. But suppressed demand is unlikely to remain the case. It will take years for oil to be obsolete. It’s used in the manufacture of practically everything we own and use on a daily basis.So, when it comes to investing in the oil industry, I think there are some companies here for the long haul. However, investing in oil stocks is not for the fainthearted. It’s a volatile sector, and that’s unlikely to change. The biggest oil stocks in the UK’s FTSE 100 index are BP and Royal Dutch Shell. Both have pledged to move into renewables.This has received a mixed response. Diversification is important for survival and they certainly have the business acumen, industry experience, and management knowledge to steer them onwards and upwards. This is particularly true when it comes to accessing capital for growth. However, moving out of oil is unlikely to be as financially lucrative in the long run, especially as government subsidies end. There’s major pressure on institutional investors, pension funds, etc., to cut ties with Big Oil and move into more ethical and sustainable areas such as renewables. But investors worry the profitability of this sector is limited.I think oil industry stocks will remain volatile, but there’s money to be made. I believe oil stocks are among the best UK shares to buy now. Both Shell and BP are powerful institutions that offer long-term investors a decent dividend yield. I’d happily buy more shares in them in 2021. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!last_img read more

Wilmerding says: Rector Belleville, IL Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Events Rector Tampa, FL Comments (4) Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA [Episcopal News Service – Keene, New Hampshire] Fifty years and three days after Jonathan Daniels died in Hayneville, Alabama, by stepping in front of a shotgun aimed at her, Ruby Sales, a human rights activist, said her heart was heavy as she preached in his home parish, St. James Episcopal Church.But she also said she found joy in this year’s commemorations of Daniels’ death, along with renewed hope for the future.“I wonder what Jonathan would make of a world where intimacy has been reduced to a virtual experience” where people talk to each other via smartphones, even bring them to the dinner table, said Sales, who operates the Atlanta, Georgia-based SpiritHouse Project to work for racial, economic and social justice.“The world that Jonathan imagined was a world of intimacy; it created a new intimacy, a stronger intimacy, a new union, a new marriage, between people who never would have met or sat down with each other.”Sales called on the congregation to take up Daniels’ commitment.“This is an opportunity to play a critical role at a critical moment in America’s history,” she said. “It is an opportunity to once again be on the front lines of struggle as the country decides which direction it will go.At the end of Sunday’s Eucharist, the Rev. Judith Upham, a seminary classmate of Daniels’ who went with him to Alabama in the spring of 1965, presented the parish with an award that she said rightly belonged in the Keene church. It was a Martyrs of the Movement award given in Daniels’ memory during a March 29 Palm Sunday “service of reconciliation” at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Selma, Alabama.Members of St. Paul’s, most of whom are white, joined with members of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Birmingham, most of whom are black, and members of Brown Chapel AME Church for the service. In the spring of 1965, an interracial group of Episcopal clergy and lay people, including Daniels and Upham, who had responded to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call to come to Selma in the wake of Bloody Sunday, attempted to worship at the church several times, but were turned away at the door. Those who eventually participated in the first integrated service, held on March 28, 1965, included Daniels, who was murdered by a deputy sheriff in Haynesville five months later, saving Sales’ life.Daniels became a member of St. James in Keene after he moved there from Keene United Church of Christ and St. James was sponsoring his journey towards ordination when he was killed. Neither of Daniels’ parents or his sister is living and so, Upham said, she was asked to accept the Martyrs of the Movement award, deciding to bring it to Keene.Sunday’s Eucharist in Keene, which was followed by a 2.3 “walk of remembrance” to the Daniels’ family gravesite in Monadnock View Cemetery for a service, culminated a year’s worth of events organized by members of St. James Episcopal Church, along with others. On Aug. 22, a commemorative weekend included panel discussions featuring people who knew Daniels followed by an evening screening at Keene’s Colonial Theater of the 1999 nearly hour-long documentary Here Am I, Send Me: The Story of Jonathan Daniels, produced by Keene State College professors Lawrence Benaquist and William Sullivan. The documentary, narrated by actor Sam Waterston, is viewable here.During remarks before the screening, community volunteer Hank Knight read a letter from President Barak Obama in which the president said that the country’s destiny was shaped by “selfless individuals” such as Daniels. Obama wrote that Daniels and other civil rights activists were heroes who embodied patriotism and gave their full measure on the “battlefield of justice.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. August 25, 2015 at 6:30 am The Jonathan Daniels 50th commemoration was a culmination of a series of events throughout the year 2015. Without the support of our community, this would never have happened. Also thanks to the Episcopal News service for their coverage.And yes, there is still work to be done.

Florida expands community surveillance with targeted testing of asymptomatic people

first_imgThe state’s expansion of sample testing of asymptomatic people comes as Florida braces for a projected peak in hospitalizations.The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) projected Friday that Florida COVID-19 hospitalizations will peak April 26.As of Friday, the DOH webpage confirmed 705 new cases and 19 new deaths since Thursday, raising the statewide count to 17,531 and 390 deaths. More than 2,300 across the state are hospitalized.The number of new deaths reported Friday was lower than Thursday’s fatality count of 48, the state’s highest single day tally.DOH noted the virus has been detected in all but one of Florida’s counties – Liberty County, the state’s least-populated county where only 17 tests had been administered through Thursday.According to, the number of new COVID-19 infections has averaged 1,131 new cases per day statewide between April 2-9.During that eight-day span, DOH reported 87,588 tests were conducted, an average of 10,944 per day, that yielded a positive infection rate of 10.3 percent. That is more than half of the 162,993 tests thus far conducted statewide.Criteria for coronavirus testing usually requires a fever, cough, shortness of breath and close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.Community surveillance collection from asymptomatic people could determine how the virus is carried by those diagnosed as positive, but who don’t display symptoms, and whether those who have not contracted the diseases despite exposure may have antibodies that could help others, DeSantis said. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate “We may want to be finding some of those people and testing them,” DeSantis said. Florida will test 800 asymptomatic people daily for coronavirus in three cities beginning next week as part of a broadening community surveillance collection effort to determine where and how COVID-19 spreads.

Millions of people had it, don’t know it” and are unknowingly spreading the disease.Since then, more than 70 The Villages residents have tested COVID-19 positive.University of Florida Health announced Tuesday it also plans to test about 2,000 asymptomatic people over the next few weeks at UF Health Jacksonville beginning Monday.UF Health and DOH are targeting Jacksonville, where, as of Friday, 609 Duval County residents have tested positive, 11 are dead and 53 hospitalized with the disease.Among alarming trends, 47 firefighters in Jacksonville’s largest fire station are in isolation after an employee tested positive for COVID-19, meaning other stations will have to cover more ground in response to emergencies.“So we’ll see how this community surveillance in the Jacksonville area will work,” DeSantis said. “I think that’s important because it really helps inform us in terms of what additional steps we can take.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear Gov. Ron DeSantis said the state’s Department of Health (DOH) would assume operations at testing sites previously supported by the federal government in Jacksonville, Miami and Orlando that had provided about 250 tests a day exclusively to health-care workers, first responders and symptomatic people 65 and older.The community surveillance goal, the governor said, is to test about 800 asymptomatic residents each day to collect data.

Emanating from a high-desert hillside amidst rugged volcanic rock and twisted juniper trees the Buddhist Retreat rises up and out toward a spectacular view Capitol Reef National Park.  In addition to its function as a secondary residence, this dwelling in Grover, Utah was designed to be a desert sanctuary for Tibetan Buddhist practice.  Its intent is to intertwine everyday activities with singular moments that are typically reserved for spiritual rituals, thus heightening and sanctifying the act of living.  Whether it be framing the detail of an ancient pinion pine or extending out into the spatial expanse of a wrapping panorama, the Buddhist Retreat’s purpose is to creating rich and diverse moments of living. Save this picture!© Imbue DesignFlush with the ground at the top of the site, the entry deck of the house projects horizontally out into space toward the red rock gateway of the park as the topography slopes down toward the verdant valley below.  The result is a space that suspends the user in a grand moment for group meditation, free and clear of visual and mental obstruction. Save this picture!© Imbue DesignDown through the deck the user descends toward the entry into a space shaded from the desert sun by the deck above.  This contrastingly intimate moment frames the most prominent details of the site: clusters of rugged junipers on one side, and exposed volcanic rocks on the other. Entering into the house, the main living space again directs the view outward through a floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall frame of the lush green valley and red plateau beyond.  The operable glass wall disappears to further blur the line between interior and exterior, function and nature.

Rogare report calls on fundraisers to stop copying and start questioning

first_imgRogare report calls on fundraisers to stop copying and start questioning About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via Tagged with: research Rogare Fundraising’s learning culture needs to move away from its ‘copy the case study’ model and change to a more evidence-based approach, according to a new report from Rogare.Rogare’s Theory of Change suggests that, to improve professional practices, fundraisers should stop copying the successes of other fundraisers, and start asking to see the evidence and theory behind what they are told.Outlining the think tank’s theory, the report reveals how Rogare plans to encourage this new way of thinking, setting out Rogare’s goal to ‘influence the influencers’ such as CEOs and trustees, training bodies, educators, and the media, to becoming ‘critical thinkers’. They will then be encouraged to take this approach to their own networks to teach fundraisers to ask the right questions about the information they have or need.Amanda Shepard, fundraising consultant and co-ordinator of Rogare’s International Advisory Panel who led the group responsible for the first draft of the theory, said:“We have a copy-the-case study model where fundraisers learn by going to conferences to hear about how other fundraisers have succeeded. Yet just because something’s worked in one scenario doesn’t mean it will work in another.“We’re aiming for a new culture in which fundraisers have the confidence to ask for the theory and evidence behind anything that they are told works, or is the correct best practice.”“We can sum up what we are trying to do at Rogare by updating the give/teach a man to fish proverb: if you show a fundraiser a successful case study, she can use it for her next similar campaign.

Venezuela’s Supreme Court on 27 July 2004 rejected an appeal against several articles from the Venezuelan press proprietors’ organisation (BPV).The Supreme Court ruled that the law on the exercise of journalistic work was compatible with Article 82 of the 1961 Constitution and with Article 105 of the 1999 Constitution, that clarifies the fact that the law determines working conditions and the organisation of certain professions.The BPV, by contrast, contends that a journalists’ work is not limited to applying basic technical competence, but is linked primarily to freedom of expression and cannot be dependent on compulsory registration in an official association.The BPV said in particular that “the law infringes Article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights (San José pact) signed by Venezuela in 1977. The proprietors’ organisation also pointed out that the “inter-American Human Rights Court put out consultative opinion number 5 on 13 November 1985 that compulsory registration with an official body as a requirement of access to free expression is incompatible with Article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights.”In a text adopted in January 2000, the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression clearly established that, imprisonment as punishment for the peaceful expression of an opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights.” Reporters Without Borders has protested against a new law passed on 27 July 2004 by Venezuela’s supreme court which it says contains measures that pose a threat to press freedom.
