GambleAware defends Tap Out campaign from APPG criticism

first_imgFinally, the APPG said that “a number of academics and public health experts” were “particularly alarmed” at the ad, as they argue the ability to ‘Tap Out’ is “effectively meaningless” for at-risk gamblers, especially if they have been drinking alcohol, as was the case in one ad of the campaign. Email Address In addressing a criticism that the messages intended to prevent harm were still based on the use of betting apps, Etches said this was a necessary step as this was how most industry customers placed bets. It had to reach gamblers through their preferred channel, he explained. 20th October 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle GambleAware has defended its marketing of the “Tap Out” phase of its “Bet Regret” campaign from criticism from the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Gambling-Related Harm, arguing the group may have misconstrued the target audience of the messages. In addition, he said that the campaign’s efforts to prevent problem gambling were undertaken through a series of behavioural “nudges” designed to encourage moderation, self-reflection and raise awareness of potential risks. Regions: UK & Ireland The APPG’s letter said that, given that Bet Regret is a public health campaign, its advertisements should not “simply encourage bettors to ‘Tap Out,’ via a product which is still clearly designed to encourage people to bet rather than stop betting”. Rather, she said, the messages should showcase more effective signposting or advertisement towards the NHS or self-exclusion tools GamStop or GamBan. Social responsibility In a letter from outgoing GambleAware chief executive Mark Etches (pictured) to APPG chair Carolyn Harris, he pointed out that the campaign targeted frequent bettors, rather than those experiencing gambling harms. GambleAware’s funding has previously faced criticism regarding its funding structure from both the APPG and the House of Lords, which called for the establishment of an independent research, education and treatment charity. This prompted Etches in July to defend GambleAware’s status and point out that the charity’s work was fully independent from operators who provide funding. “Gambling operators (and broadcasters) have been prevailed upon by DCMS to provide funding but our governance structure is designed to ensure complete independence from the industry, who are informed of plans after they have been set as a courtesy but have no involvement in decisions on campaign development,” Etches wrote. The Tap Out campaign was launched in September and encourages players to “tap out” of their phones before placing a bet, in order to have time to consider their choices.

Tags: GambleAware All-Party Parliamentary Group Bet Regret Mark Etches Topics: Social responsibility CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling In addition, the APPG said that “the clear and logical solution” for a customer experiencing ‘Bet Regret’ would surely be to encourage bettors to completely stop betting”. However, aspects of the campaign drew criticism from the All-Party Parliamentary Group and its chair, Carolyn Harris, who wrote a letter on behalf of the group to GambleAware in September raising these issues. Earlier today (19 October) GambleAware also published a study carried out by Leeds Beckett University that found that the multi-level setup of its treatment and support system has led to significant knowledge gaps. It noted that various parts of the current treatment system, such as individual treatment providers, often did not have a way of interacting and sharing knowledge with one another. Finally, Etches again defended GambleAware’s funding model and pointed out that while operators provide funding to the charity, they do not have a say in developing campaigns.  Etches’ letter also pointed to research that said that messages that refer to treatment or gambling addiction also tend to lead to “othering”, where at-risk gamblers believe the messages are not meant for them.

Holland Casino venues to remain closed until at least 9 February

first_imgThe operator’s properties faced their third period of closure beginning on 16 December last year, in response to the rising number of cases of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19). After reopening in July, the venues were subject to a midnight curfew from September as cases of the virus began rising again. Holland Casino venues to remain closed until at least 9 February 15th January 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Topics: Casino & games Land-based casino The first wave of Covid-19 early in 2020 saw the casinos close their doors in March, as part of a shutdown that was originally expected to last until September. However, negotiations between the government and the operator subsequently saw the date for reopening brought forward to 1 July. Net loss after corporate income tax (VPB) for the period amounted to €28.3m, compared to a €32.5m profit in 2019. The Netherlands’ government has announced that the national lockdown currently in place in the jurisdiction will be extended by a further three weeks, meaning all 14 of Holland Casino’s gaming venues will remain closed until 9 February at the earliest. The period of opening lasted under a month, as the casinos were closed again by 16 December under the current lockdown, and will now remain closed until at least 9 February. Email Addresscenter_img The venues reopened on 19 November, although restaurants, bars and catering establishments throughout the nation remained closed. That period of lockdown was intended to last until 19 January, until it was extended earlier this week. Land-based casino Results published in August showed that the operator’s revenue for the first half of 2020 had fallen 58.7% year-on-year, despite strong performance prior to the first period of closure.

Stock market crash! I’m buying cheap UK shares to make a million for retirement

first_img 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! Harvey Jones | Wednesday, 4th November, 2020 Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. It wouldn’t take much to trigger a second stock market crash. But investors should view this possibility as a chance to buy cheap UK shares, rather than a threat to one’s wealth.Those not taking advantage of the crash in March will have been kicking themselves as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 recovered rapidly. However, that recovery is now under threat, due to lockdown 2.0 and US political uncertainty. If markets crash again, investors could be handed a second chance to buy cheap UK shares. Don’t miss it this time.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…History shows that those who buy UK shares when markets are down reap the rewards in the longer run. Share prices rarely stay cheap forever. Investors go hunting for bargains in the wreckage, and that drives the recovery.I’d buy cheap UK shares todayOnce people suspect the worst is over, markets can rapidly rebound. Some of the biggest returns ever witnessed may come in the months after a stock market crash. That’s when UK shares are at their cheapest and have greatest recovery potential. By taking advantage of buying opportunities in the troubled months ahead I’d power up my plans to make a million to fund an early retirement.But too many investors prefer to sit on the sidelines when the outlook’s uncertain. That’s understandable, but costly. Only buying when investors are happy and stock markets are rising means blowing a big opportunity to buy cheap UK shares. Buying shares when they’re expensive is no way to make a million for your retirement.A little risk also has to be factored in. As famed investor Peter Lynch said: “You need to know the market’s going to go down sometimes. If you’re not ready for that, you shouldn’t own stocks. And it’s good when it happens.”While it may hurt at the time, a stock market crash is a good thing. Shares cannot be expected to power upwards forever in a straight line. A crash is good because it offers up a great opportunity to buy UK shares when they’re cheap, so don’t waste it.I’d pick up more bargain stocks tomorrowLynch also said: “What you learn from history is the market goes down. It goes down a lot.” That’s certainly the case this year. The FTSE 100 is down almost a quarter. Even if equities don’t crash further, there’s still plenty of cheap UK shares on offer wherever you look.So loading up on stocks and the market drops isn’t a time panic. Stay invested and coolly wait for the recovery, while taking advantage of this fresh opportunity to load up on cheap UK shares.Here’s one more quote from Lynch: “I’ve found that when the market’s going down and you buy funds wisely, at some point in the future you will be happy. The same applies to shares.”Deep down, I’m almost hoping we’ll see another stock market crash, because I’m all geared up to buy more cheap UK shares. Stock market crash!

Wales and England to meet in Junior World Championship final

first_imgWednesday Jun 19, 2013 Wales and England to meet in Junior World Championship final There were incredible scenes in France last night as the Junior World Championship served up two upset results, with both the defending champion Baby Boks and the always powerful Baby Blacks being defeated by Wales and England respectively. Wales and England Under-20s will face off for the 2013 Junior World Championship title on Sunday, the first time two Northern Hemisphere sides have ever contested the final of such an event.Wales achieved a last gasp 18-17 win over South Africa with a late converted try that came from a neat kick ahead, and conversion, but star youngester Sam Davies (the son of Nigel Davies).“Sam’s been very, very consistent to a particular high level during the course of this tournament with his kicking game and his attacking game. He deserved huge credit for that kick,” said defence coach Richard Hodges.A controversial try that appeared to be dropped over the line went the way of Wales, and in the end it was their determination that sealed the win. They’re now relishing a meeting with arch rivals England, who beat New Zealand 33-21, in the final.Four time champions New Zealand were defeated by England for the first time at age grade level.“It’s unbelievable – having not done well last year, we spoke to the new boys coming up and said we’ve really got to go for it this year. To beat New Zealand on its own is amazing,” said England hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie.“Never come up against them, I thought they may have sneaked it at the end. But, to get into a final of a JWC in my last year is amazing.South Africa and New Zealand will play for third place ahead of the Final on Sunday.Highlights of South Africa vs Wales and New Zealand vs England are posted below.

Social Housing Sandtlaan / HVE architecten

first_img Social Housing Sandtlaan / HVE architecten Area:  4500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/137091/social-housing-sandtlaan-hve-architecten Clipboard “COPY” Projects Save this picture!Courtesy of HVE architecten+ 16 Share Text description provided by the architects. HVE Architecten has designed a bright, sand-coloured housing project with a diverse program, that blends in and complements its surroundings with a certain ease and lightness. Filtered by the old trees next to the avenue Sandtlaan the light finds its way to the austere brick, glass and metal façades. Through façade composition and choice of materials the project has both a strong sense of solidity and lightness and playfulness. Save this picture!Courtesy of HVE architectenRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformThe quality of the craftsmanship and the experience value for the residents played a key role throughout the design process. This is reflected in the richness of materials used in the design of the façade and public interior spaces. A special element, for example, is the entrance hall and main stairwell of the apartment building, where colour and spatial diversity transform a purely functional space into an exceptional experience. Save this picture!Courtesy of HVE architectenThe previous apartment buildings along the Sandtlaan did no longer meet the standards of modern living. Therefore HVE architects along with Dunavie housing developed a new plan in which a more differentiated housing program could be realized, with more houses for starters and young families. The planned program is comprised of apartments for returning (senior) residents of the demolished buildings on the site, an accommodation for a sheltered living project for young people, and several single-family dwellings with and without incorporated working space for starters on the housing market. Save this picture!Courtesy of HVE architectenThe single-family dwellings are grouped in two clusters. Each cluster consists of four dwellings of two floors and four dwellings of three floors with room for office space. These clusters are situated on the footprint of the former apartment buildings in order to maintain the existing views from the adjacent houses. The apartment block can be seen as the backing of the lower clusters and functions as an point of entrance to the neighbourhood. The ground and fifth floor have apartments for senior citizens. The living units for the sheltered living project are grouped together on the second and third floor, with a collective living area on the third floor. Save this picture!Site PlanThe supporting structure and installation of the building has been organized in such away that the units of sheltered living can be converted into standard residential apartments and vice versa. Consequently the building can be internally transformed to accommodate different programs depending on future developments in Katwijk. The architectural quality of the project Sandtlaan emphasizes the objective of Dunavie to create a positive impulse in this area and introduce new types of housing in Katwijk.Save this picture!Courtesy of HVE architectenProject gallerySee allShow lessSteven Holl Architects to Design an Art Institute at Virginia Commonwealth UniversityArticlesPoints of View from Herman MillerArticlesProject locationAddress:Katwijk, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
