Sky CEO renews calls for industry to limit online ads

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 13th December 2018 | By contenteditor Sky CEO renews calls for industry to limit online ads Marketing & affiliates Stephen van Rooyen calls for restrictions on gambling advertising across all channels to be implemented AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Marketing & affiliates Stephen van Rooyen, chief executive of broadcaster Sky for the UK and Ireland, has used confirmation of the betting industry’s voluntary restrictions on TV advertising to again call for action to limit the sector’s online marketing.With the so-called ‘whistle-to-whistle’ ban on betting ads around live sport to be implemented in mid-2019, van Rooyen (pictured) has called for a “proportionate and responsible” limit to industry advertising against all channels to be brought in.“Yet again, the gambling industry are ignoring the fact they spend five times more on online marketing than they do on TV,” van Rooyen said. “By cutting TV ads, they’ll simply spend more online, bombarding people’s smartphones, tablets and social media feeds with even more gambling ads.”Earlier this week he claimed in an op-ed for The Times newspaper that a shift online would result in fewer safeguards for customers. Van Rooyen argued that there were less regulation governing online advertising, and pointed out that the industry’s investment in advertising via that channel dwarfs TV ad spend.However, UK advertising watchdog the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) described the CEO’s claims as inaccurate. It noted that the CAP and BCAP Codes govern both channels, and that it has regularly issued guidance regarding age-sensitive online advertising that applies to the iGaming sector.The ban, announced earlier today by the Industry Group for Responsible Gambling (IGRG), will see no betting adverts shown five minutes before the start of a sporting broadcast begins and five minutes after the event ends.It will be supported by the industry committing not to broadcast betting ads around highlights shows, and an end to bookmakers sponsoring sports programmes that are broadcast before the 9pm watershed. The new measures are to be added to the IGRG’s Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Advertising in January, then brought into force six months later.Despite some critics arguing that the ban will have little effect unless operators also agree to end sponsorship and marketing deals with sports teams in addition to the advertising controls, it has been warmly welcomed in other quarters.“For many people gambling is not a harmful activity, but for some it can become a serious problem,” GamCare chief executive Anna Hemmings said. “Many of our service users have told us that the volume of gambling advertisements on television and elsewhere is not helpful to them in maintaining their recovery, so the news that gambling advertising during live sporting events will be reduced is welcome.“We would also welcome more research and discussion around the potential impacts gambling advertising can have on vulnerable people so that safeguards can continue to develop and protect people from future harms.”Labour Party deputy leader Tom Watson, meanwhile, hailed the move, but said it would have to be followed by action tackling online advertising.Tom Watson, who has previously called for a complete ban on partnerships between betting operators and sports teams, described the move as an important first step in recognising that the proliferation of gambling ads had “got completely out of hand”.“It was imperative for the industry to accept there is a problem and they have done that today,” Watson said. “The next step will have to be addressing the gambling adverts that children and vulnerable problem gamblers see online.”With news of the ban leaking last week, leading UK operators’ share prices have not been affected by its confirmation. Shares in William Hill are currently trading up 1.21% at 159.15 pence per share, while GVC Holdings, which owns the Ladbrokes and Coral brands, are up 0.22% at 671.50 pence per share. Paddy Power Betfair, meanwhile, has seen its shares rise 1.70% to 71.85 pence per share today (December 13).“As I have commented previously, I am concerned about the volume and tone of gambling advertising and its potential impact on a generation of young people who are being exposed in a way that didn’t happen previously,” William Hill chief executive Philip Bowcock told iGamingBusiness.com. “As a company, we are taking positive steps through our Nobody Harmed ambition, and we are actively involved in and deeply supportive of industry efforts to collaborate to respond directly to public concerns on this issue.” Email Addresslast_img read more

Pointing the camera at live casino’s potential

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Live dealer Email Address 22nd November 2019 | By Josephine Watson Live dealer Pointing the camera at live casino’s potential Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter iGaming Business speaks with Pragmatic Play to discuss the latest trends in live casino and the opportunities within this growing vertical… Lana Bleichyk started her career in the gambling industry in early 2010 as sales for B2B operators. Since then, she has had a great experience of developing and pushing a new live casino product on the market, worldwide (6 years+), developing her experience working for a big IT company specialising in AI and data science. She recently joined Pragmatic Play to strengthen the company’s position on the live casino market.The expansion of live casino in gaming is showing no signs of slowing down, and live casino’s growing importance and continuing potential is illustrated by supplier Pragmatic Play’s decision to develop its own service in the last year or so.It may no longer be the new guy at the table, but its impressive growth and opportunity for even greater development explains why the industry is choosing to bet the house on its future.The appeal of live casino is fairly obvious. The opportunity to experience the buzz of a real dealer on a real table and take on other real players via a mobile or laptop from the comfort of one’s home or on the go is a strong sell.It was a natural development of the original online casinos as, a decade or so ago, improved technology allowed for cameras to capture blackjack dealers at real casinos or purpose-built studios, with gamers at home able to place bets in real-time on the outcome.Of course, initial offerings were basic and often frustratingly glitchy. With an obvious global market, however, resources have been poured into the vertical to develop the advanced, super-fast exciting games we see today. Real-world excitementWhile known primarily as a slots developer, Pragmatic Play was eager to enhance its offering and become a multi-product provider.“People want to be entertained,” said Lana Bleichyk, live casino operations manager at Pragmatic Play, as she explained the attraction of live casino. “For me, the excitement makes it the best vertical out there for players.“It’s for pleasure, and gamblers around the world absolutely love it. It’s very different to slots in that it has that interaction and communication with the dealers and that real-world excitement.Lana Bleichyk has more than 6 years of experience within the live casino segment alone, with earlier multi-product experience as well, and has switched to Pragmatic Play to strengthen the team of other highly experienced professionals.According to her, there is more than just a type of live casino player, considering that trends are dependent to matters such as location and mentality. “For example, in Asia players are more venturous, though you may find VIP players placing very high bets all over the world,” she said.An important element in progress has been to get out to brick-and-mortar casinos and actually speak to players.“Feedback from players and operators is important for any supplier,” she said. “We want to get a real feel for the players – what they like and don’t like, what they get out of playing online as opposed to a real casino. It’s very interesting to watch them and to engage with them.” InteractionThe interaction with customers has been vital for Pragmatic Play’s development strategy as it attempts to catch up with live casino suppliers who have been on the scene for several years.While being first-to-market has obvious benefits, Pragmatic Play has the advantage of years of experience and not making some of the mistakes encountered by its rivals.Lana Bleichyk and the team set about getting the Live Casino product familiar to players on the market before anything else and are now looking to add enhancements and create a service that will raise the standards. The product has seen growth of 45% month-on-month recently, and Lana Bleichyk expects live casino to become an increasingly sizeable part the business.“We have made the product in line with current trends together with some unique features on the market.,” she said. “Now it’s solid, we are adding more things. We will also update the UI design which will be lighter, user-friendly and will make our games stand out among competitors. It’s important to keep the quality and then build up.”Pragmatic Play is also increasing its current portfolio of three games with new exciting games to be released soon. QualityThe quality of the user experience is a key consideration for all suppliers and the operators who take their service and, with entertainment the name of the game within the segment, live casino suppliers must become increasingly ambitious with their content.Pragmatic Play has a studio in Romania with space for 43 tables and has the capability to offer Private Branded tables for operators who want to differentiate themselves from their rivals.“Quality of cameras and the number of angles is important,” Bleichyk added. “Streaming quality is also very important, of course. The most successful suppliers will be the ones that invest in streaming, and that is something that we have made a priority.“We also even look at dealers themselves. Our research, for example, revealed that men and women who play are eager to have a dealer of the opposite gender.“We are developing multi-language capability too. We are aiming to open new language tables which will help operators to attract new players.”Lana sees considerable room for growth in European markets, which is why Pragmatic Play is pursuing a number of licence and certificate applications.“I think live casino is something that all operators should have,” she added. “Players now see it as an essential along with slots and bingo, and they must have that variety on offer.“We hope to cater for this full service as we can make the live casino available along with our other products via the same native API, so it is so simple to integrate.”last_img read more

Durante el trienio 2010-2012, miles de personas se unieron a congregaciones, diócesis, escuelas y organizaciones en esta iniciativa de base que abarca a toda la iglesia y busca unir a los episcopales en la lucha contra la malaria. Desde 2006, la asociación del programa NetsforLife® de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo ha distribuido más de 11 millones de mosquiteros y reducido las muertes relacionadas con la malaria en un 45% en las comunidades del África sahariana que participan del programa.“El hecho de haber recaudado 5 millones de dólares, a nivel base, a través del trabajo conjunto de las comunidades de la iglesia es muy significativo”, dijo Laura Ellen Muglia, copresidente del Comité Asesor de la Campaña nacional del Fondo de Inspiración NetsforLife®. “Aún más impactante es saber que los mosquiteros distribuidos harán que niños, madres, padres, abuelos, primos y comunidades enteras tengan una vida sin malaria, una nueva vida con muchas posibilidades, una vida de esperanza”.Mediante su labor conjunta con iglesias y grupos religiosos, NetsforLife® ha sido líder en la prevención de la malaria: distribuyó más de 11 millones de mosquiteros, capacitó a 82,000 agentes comunitarios de malaria y llegó a más de 30 millones de personas en zonas remotas de todo el continente africano. NetsforLife® combate la malaria con educar a los miembros de la comunidad sobre el uso y el mantenimiento adecuados de los mosquiteros, capacitar a los agentes comunitarios para la entrega de dichos mosquiteros, que salvan vidas, y evaluar las prácticas de prevención de la malaria. De los 17 países en los que NetsforLife® se encuentra activo, cinco de ellos (Angola, Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leona y Zambia) han incorporado diversos aspectos de la metodología del programa a su política nacional de lucha contra la malaria; y muchos otros han solicitado asesoramiento para la planificación estratégica a nivel nacional.En la Convención General de 2009, la Iglesia Episcopal hizo el Fondo de Inspiración NetsforLife® la pieza central de su respuesta profética a los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM) de las Naciones Unidas y se comprometió a destinar el 0,7% de su presupuesto a esta campaña. Se invitó a todos los episcopales a aprender más sobre esta enfermedad y las formas de prevenirla, y a colaborar con esta importante tarea. Un Comité Asesor integrado por cuatro copresidentes y miembros de toda la Iglesia se encarga de dirigir la campaña, que superó su objetivo de recaudación de 5 millones de dólares a principios de 2013.“No se me ocurre ninguna otra iniciativa individual que haya unido tanto a nuestra diócesis en una misión y un esfuerzo común. La campaña proporcionó un enfoque renovado en la labor de los ODM y reunió individuos de sorprendente talento y liderazgo de pequeñas y grandes parroquias”, reflexionó el Reverendísimo Michael Curry, Obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Carolina del Norte, copresidente del Comité Asesor de la Campaña nacional del Fondo de Inspiración NetsforLife® y Miembro de la Junta Directiva de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo. “El trabajo de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo ocupa un lugar central en nuestro llamado como cristianos a curar a un mundo que sufre”.El Fondo de Inspiración de la Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo permite a los episcopales vivir su fe al marcar una diferencia positiva en las vidas de millones de personas del mundo entero a través de la participación local y de base en comunidades de todo el país.“Fue muy conmovedor ver la forma en que las iglesias y diócesis episcopales se unieron para mejorar significativamente la vida de millones de personas del África subsahariana a través del trabajo de NetsforLife® y esta campaña”, manifestó Barbara Case Senchak, copresidente del Comité Asesor de la Campaña nacional del Fondo de Inspiración NetsforLife®. “Todas nuestras comunidades se fortalecieron gracias a esta iniciativa. Realmente representa la participación de lo mejor de la cristiandad en un esfuerzo global”.Si bien la campaña ha finalizado, la labor de NetsforLife® continuará. De hecho, los logros alcanzados en la lucha contra la malaria son aún frágiles y requerirán una inversión permanente. Para el 2013, el objetivo es distribuir más de 3 millones de mosquiteros.“La pasión, la creatividad y el entusiasmo que toda la Iglesia le aportó a esta campaña ha sido algo poco menos que extraordinario”, afirmó Joy Shigaki, Directora del Fondo de Inspiración NetsforLife®. “Mediante la organización de torneos de baloncesto, carreras, ventas de galletas y foros educativos sobre la malaria, esta campaña ha constituido una iniciativa vivificante y transformadora”.Vea nuestro video de agradecimiento y lea relatos inspiradores de la campaña:“Thank You” VideoEpiscopal Diocese of New JerseyEpiscopal Diocese of ChicagoEpiscopal Diocese of MichiganEpiscopal Diocese of Southern Ohio La Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo es la agencia internacional de ayuda y desarrollo de la Iglesia Episcopal y una organización 501(c)(3) independiente.

Baoping Kan. The two leaders serve together on the Executive Committee of the World Council of Churches.“As the Church of Pakistan this was the first step in the history of the church to establish a relationship of our own with a church in the East,” said Azariah.“We wanted to reach out and see the changes in China and as good neighbors we want our churches to develop good cooperation.”Although the countries are close and many people now fly in and out of China, he said the churches have never used that fact to their advantage.“This is not only a breakthrough of a new relationship but an opportunity of learning for both churches on mission, self-reliance and development,” said Azariah.“We see China as a church which has developed its confidence recently on its own with its own resources. We believe that is something we can learn from and we hope that we as the Church of Pakistan can achieve self-reliance just as they have done.”The churches in China are celebrating a post-denominational period, as there are no official church denominations. The Three Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM) caters to the pastoral needs of the churches and its members, and for administrative purposes the China Christian Council, both at the national and provincial levels, takes care of international relations and administration.Azariah hopes the visit will develop a relationship of love and prayer, caring and sharing, a joint Christian witness. “We can see the importance of how we can cooperate in terms of mission and in joint ventures in sharing the gospel, leadership training and theological education. We are looking forward to receiving a delegation from China in the next 6 or 7 months and further ahead we would like to develop exchanges with pastors, youth leaders, women’s ministry leaders and others.” In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Bath, NC Ecumenical & Interreligious By Rachel FarmerPosted Jun 7, 2016 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit an Event Listing Rector Belleville, IL Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

NFL star Dhani Jones playing rugby

first_imgTuesday Mar 25, 2008 NFL star Dhani Jones playing rugby The comparisons between NFL and Rugby will be the subject of discussion for probably as long as the two games exist. Not a lot of top athletes are privileged enough to get the chance to try their hands at both. Until now that is.Dhani Jones is an American Footballer who spent last season with the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL. Earlier this year though, Dhani came to Blackheath RFC in London to experience rugby for the first time, and even appeared for them in a cup match against Cornish side Launceston.Jones is an aspiring television presenter, and thought it would be great to learn more about rugby as part of a new tv show called Dhani Tackles the Globe, in which the 30-year-old American footballer tries new sports.The tv company making the pilot contacted Blackheath’s director of rugby, Harvey Biljon, and requested that Jones visits the club for the experience.Our players thought it would be fantastic to have a full-time athlete from a top American sport testing himself among our amateurs, Biljon said.Blackheath, until a couple of recent defeats, were pushing for promotion from National League Two and werent prepared to risk introducing a rookie to competitive rugby in an important league for them.The cup competition was where the opportunity existed, so a few training sessions later and he was ready, almost. Before training on one occasion, Biljon took Dhani for a jog, passing the ball between them. Try and spin the ball, Biljon told him. Im trying, man, Im trying, was the response.Jones got his chance to come on as a sub against Launceston and made a few tackles, but most importantly, got a taste of this great game and now knows exactly what rugby is all about.

The main key concept for the development of the project was the forest on the site. When we first met with the customer on his land we saw high age-old pines and we got extremely inspired by them. So we discussed with the Client that our goal is to create and build a house that would be one with nature. There was also a request from the owner to build a house from environmentally friendly materials.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe client initially didn’t know at all what he wanted. He was thrown from side to side from a heavy suite to ascetic nothingness … he asked to make an ordinary hut in the forest, while he never perceived things or economy-class furniture … One day he wanted to see absolute brutality in the house, on another day he swore at us what could one offer him such a thing and what is all this for, here is a good design (pointing and poking at pictures with heavy luxury) .. As a result, we were looking for a design for a very long time. We tried to understand who he really is, our Client, what he needs. So, at some point we felt the edge of moderate luxury at the junction with asceticism and brutalism … and he began to like him (and we too).Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovAs a result, we began to mix expensive surfaces (walnut veneer or expensive furniture elements such as sofa chairs and armchairs) with absolutely brutal ascetic ones – concrete, stone (I personally went to Turkey to Denizli (this is in the Pamukkale region) is rich in various types of travertine, and it was there that I found the texture and color of the stone that I had been looking for in Moscow and Russia for so long, but without success … I had to go around no quarry in Turkey to find the very stone that we needed), a fence (yes, if look at the ceiling, there will be fence boards – his story is this: there was an old fence on our site .. so we gave it a second life – we restored it and nailed it to the ceiling, absolutely the entire fence went to the ceiling, and painted it black and be sure to use hands and a brush … so that the texture and pattern are visible). Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe frame of the house made of wood and metal, walls made of energy-efficient glass. The house is also heated with vertical radiators and water floor heating. The facade is made of sheet metal and wooden slats.Save this picture!© Ilya IvanovThe configuration based on the needs of the customer.

Read “Court to Clarify Definition of Fraud in Charitable Fund-Raising” by Linda Greenhouse at the New York Times. The Supreme Court in the USA is expected to issue a clarification of the definition of fraud in charitable fundraising by professional fundraising companies.The lack of clarity has hindered attempts by US states to prosecute certain fraudulent fundraising companies and those that appear to retain a very high percentage of funds raised on behalf of charities. Until now these companies have successfully argued that charitable solicitation constitutes free speech and so is protected by the First Amendment.Eighteen states have backed the Illinois attorney general’s office in its appeal to the Supreme Court saying that such problems are widespread.

Young woman journalist arrested and manhandled while covering student demo

first_img November 11, 2020 Find out more RSF_en to go further Police used violence to arrest reporter Fatine Al-Hamdi yesterday in Tunis, hitting her with a baton, dragging her by the hair and holding her for four hours at Sidi Bachir police station, where they interrogated her at length about the new independent radio station she works for, Radio Kalima, due to be launched next month. She was covering a student demonstration at the time of her arrest.“Journalists reporting for Tunisia’s few independent media such as the online magazine Kalima and the TV station Al-Hiwar Attounsi are closely watched and often prevented from covering events,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Yesterday’s incident does not bode well for Radio Kalima’s launch in a few weeks’ time but Tunisia needs more than the newspapers owned by the state and the president’s cronies, which never cover protests.”Hamdi was arrested outside the Preparatory Institute for Literary Studies and Social Sciences before she had a chance to approach the protesting students. The police broke her camera and took her audio recorder, and then questioned her about her activities at Radio Kalima and the other people working for the station.She told Reporters Without Borders the police tried to pressure her to become an informer. “They proposed that I should work for them, supplying them with information about the stories that are going to be covered by the station,” she said.The Observatory for Freedom of the Press, Publishing and Creation in Tunisia (OLPEC), a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation, issued a press release condemning the “persecution of journalists and human rights activists” and calling on the authorities to “cease such practices as Tunisia prepares to mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”Hamdi is one of a team of young journalists who have joined the staff of the web magazine Kalima for the launch of its radio station, which is due to begin broadcasting independent news and information online and by satellite next month.Tunisia was ranked 143rd out of 173 countries in the press freedom index which Reporters Without Borders issued on 22 October.
