Gamstop urges problem gamblers to self-exclude during lockdown

first_img Gamstop urges problem gamblers to self-exclude during lockdown Tags: Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland Gamstop, the UK’s online gambling self-exclusion scheme, has urged people worried about their gambling while at home during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown to exclude from all igaming sites to protect themselves from harm. Strategy Topics: Strategy Gamstop, the UK’s online gambling self-exclusion scheme, has urged people worried about their gambling while at home during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown to exclude from all igaming sites to protect themselves from harm.Some MPs have raised concerns that the enforced lockdown could see people turn to online gambling as a distraction, and this could in turn lead to a rise in related harms. The Gambling Related Harm All Party Parliamentary Group has urged operators to introduce a £50 daily gambling limit for players, to be enforced throughout the crisis.However, Gamstop chief executive Fiona Palmer has taken this a step further by recommending that consumers with concerns about their habits self-exclude from all online gambling sites for at least the duration of the lockdown.“We are concerned that, at a time when so many people are being forced to stay at home during the coronavirus, vulnerable consumers who may have an issue with their gambling might be tempted to spend money they do not have on online gambling,” Palmer said.“People generally come to us when they realise that excluding themselves from all online gambling is the first step they need to take to provide the necessary breathing space to tackle their issues with gambling.“Self-exclusion is just one tool in a suite of services; we work closely with charities, such as GamCare, who offer specialist treatment, as well as with banks who provide financial blocking options to their customers and with providers of device blocking software.”Gamstop said it issued the call as, since lockdown came into force on 23 March, it has seen a spike in requests from registered users trying to end their self-exclusion before their chosen period expired so they could begin gambling again.By registering with Gamstop, consumers can choose to restrict themselves from all UK-licensed sites for a period of six months, a year or five years. However, once registered with the service, users are unable to cancel their self-exclusion until the end of their chosen period.Gamstop’s intervention comes after the Gambling Commission last week published advice for players to help them keep their gambling under control during the pandemic, while the regulator also released guidance for licensed operators to keep customers safe.In addition, standards body the Betting and Gaming Council published a ten-point plan for its members to follow and protect players from harm during lockdown.

ISA 2020 allowance untouched? Here are 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’m eyeing right now

Here are 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’m eyeing right now Jonathan Smith does not have shares in any firm mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Imperial Brands. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The coronavirus has seen one of the most rapid stock market falls in history. Yet in the process, some good FTSE 100 stocks have also been swept up in the sell-off. A savvy investor should aim to separate the stocks that are in trouble from the ones that have been oversold. From this, you can look at some smart investments for a Stocks and Shares ISA.Why an ISA?Given the new ISA allowance of £20,000 that started with the new tax year, it makes sense to put stocks into the tax-free wrapper that an ISA provides. When we see the market eventually move back towards the levels seen at the start of the year, this should really pay off. Sheltering your investments within a Stocks and Shares ISA could mean saving hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds in capital gains tax as all gains in an ISA are tax-free. With that cleared up, let’s move on to the ideas themselves.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…Feeling hungryOcado (LSE: OCDO) is an online supermarket and technology play. Not having a physical presence might have been an issue a few decades ago, but not now. Having an efficient operation comprising warehouses and fleet of vans, plus all the tech it relies on, allows the firm to avoid costly store overheads. It has also done well during the growth phase by partnerships with larger firms such as Waitrose. As of September, it will team up with Marks & Spencer instead to sell the retailer’s branded products.Its growth has been artificially pumped higher due to the coronavirus pandemic. It even had to temporarily halt online delivers due to the sheer amount of demand it was seeing for orders. Thankfully, business is back and booming. In a recent company statement, it said first-quarter revenue was 10.3% higher at £441.2m. After an initial sell-off, the share price is starting to rally. Given the Q1 performance, I think it could continue to do well. It’s going to take a long time for consumers to feel comfortable going back into retail stores, and so the strong online presence Ocado has built up will serve it well.Going up in smoke?The recent share price performance for Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) has been anything but positive. In this case, the ISA would have capital gains tax to protect. But the 36% fall over the past year (exacerbated by the virus sell-off) helps for another reason. Only a few weeks ago, the firm honoured its dividend commitment, when many other firms have done the opposite. The share price fall increases the dividend yield if you buy at the lower price, and the dividend sits at around 13% currently. Given that there’s confidence the firm continuing to pay out dividends, this is a potential strong pick for income investors.While we do need to be confident in the fundamental picture around the firm as well, a look into its finances does give some cause for optimism. It recently announced an additional £3.1bn worth of credit that lenders had made available. So even if we see sales sliding this year, the credit facility should be enough of a buffer. This can support the firm through any choppy waters in the near term. Jonathan Smith | Thursday, 16th April, 2020 | More on: IMB OCDO Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Not On My Campus will not return to campus

The campaign aims, “to make people aware of the ways they can intervene, stop sexual assault and support victims,” Ritchie said.She also said she thinks TCU handles sexual assault cases well, but many times these cases go under the students’ radar.Last fall Ritchie traveled to West Virginia for a student government conference and presented a proposal that suggested all Big 12 schools come together to adopt the It’s On Us framework. “At the conference, all Big 12’s student body presidents and vice presidents came together and filmed a video about It’s On Us and featured the hashtag ‘Big12Together’,” Ritchie said.  “The video will be coming out in a student body email Monday morning, along with a letter that the representatives from all the schools have written together,” she said. “The video will set the tone for the week by saying: Yes, this is an athletic conference that has a lot of sexual assault issues, but we are coming together to say no to it.”This week, TCU and the other Big 12 schools will be using the hashtag on social media accounts and having an It’s On Us week by highlighting how other schools prevent sexual assault.  It’s On Us week at TCU includes bystander training, “Coffee with Cops,” a panel and banner for the community to sign.It’s On Us informs students about consent.Photo courtesy of ItsOnUs.org“I would love to see more peer support and more peer advocacy because it makes the issue a lot more comfortable to talk about because it’s talking to your peers,” Ritchie said. “You’re not talking to the administration or an adult in that situation.”Freshman biochemistry major Krupa Patel said she was excited to be part of this campaign because sexual assault is a topic she holds close to her heart. “As bystanders, we can bring awareness in the community and better prepare our peers by showing them ways they can be helpful,” Patel said. “Most people don’t know what to do or how they can help, so just providing helpful steps on how to intervene can make the biggest impact!”Junior early childhood education major, Delaney Paul, said she hopes to see many students at the King Family Commons building on Feb. 13 for bystander training. The training will go from 5:30 p.m to 8 p.m. “The best way to stop sexual assaults is to educate yourself on this kind of stuff,” Paul said. “We can lower sexual assaults on our campus if we know what to look for, and what to do if we see something happening.” TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history It’s On Us signs are all around campus.Photo by: Michelle Ross Linkedin Rec center app aims to make scheduling workouts easier World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddItcenter_img Twitter Michelle Rosshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michelle-ross/ printIt’s On Us signs are all around campus.Photo by: Michelle RossAround campus, there are signs with a Google type bar saying “She wanted it” and “She wanted it to stop.”One in five women and one in 16 men are sexually assaulted in college, according to NotAlone.gov.This semester TCU is saying goodbye to Not On My Campus sexual assault campaign and welcoming the It’s On Us campaign.

“Justice for Deyda Hydara” radio spot launched in run-up to African Union summit in Banjul

first_img Gambia still needs to address challenges to press freedom News August 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation News Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder Receive email alerts GambiaAfrica Reporters Without Borders appealed today to radio stations broadcasting in Africa to regularly transmit a short radio spot about the murder of journalist Deyda Hydara from now until the end of a two-day African Union summit in Banjul on 2 July. “My father was killed just a hundred yards from a police barracks a year and a half ago. Since then, the government has done nothing to identify his murderers,” Baba says in the spot. Three journalist arrested, two radio stations closed in Gambia Reporters Without Borders appealed today to radio stations broadcasting in Africa to regularly transmit a short radio spot about the murder of journalist Deyda Hydara from now until the end of a two-day African Union summit in Banjul on 2 July.The Gambia correspondent of Reporters Without Borders and Agence France-Presse and co-editor of the tri-weekly The Point, Hydara was gunned down in Banjul exactly 18 months ago, on 16 December 2004. Less than 30 seconds long, the spot was prepared by Reporters Without Borders and Hydara’s son, Baba Hydara.“My father was one of the Gambia’s greatest journalists,” Baba says in the spot. “He was killed just a hundred yards from a police barracks a year and a half ago. Since then, the government has done nothing to identify his murderers. Justice for Deyda Hydara!”The spot concludes with this comment by Reporters Without Borders: “As the African Union holds a summit in Banjul, Reporters Without Borders points out that the Gambia is one of the most hostile countries in Africa for journalists.”The spot can be downloaded in MP3 format in both English and French from the Reporters Without Borders website (www.rsf.org).In June 2005, Reporters Without Borders appealed to radios broadcasting in Africa to point out that the only thing the Gambian government had done in the six months since Hydara’s murder was to try to discredit him.Reporters Without Borders today also hailed the courageous position on Hydara’s murder taken in the US Congress by Representative Adam Schiff (Democrat, California’s 29th district). Schiff said: “Mr. Speaker, I rise today to mark the 18-month anniversary of a tragic event that is symptomatic of the deterioration of press freedom in the Gambia and elsewhere.”He added: “Resistance to impunity is essential to maintain civil peace and demonstrate a commitment to democratic values. In a time when repeated anonymous attacks against media professionals have created tense relations between the state and the media in many countries, Deyda Hydara’s unrequited murder is deeply worrisome to those who are committed to democracy and justice in Africa. I hope that the Gambian Government will take this occasion to reverse its record on press freedom and set an example for the rest of the region.”Schiff will also write to Gambian President Yahya Jammeh expressing support for the call by Reporters Without Borders and the Gambia Press Union (the country’s main journalists’ association) for the creation of an independent commission to investigate Hydara’s murder.The letter says: “As the Gambia prepares to host the Summit of the Chiefs of State of the African Union (AU) in July and hold an important presidential election in September, I urge you to reaffirm your government’s commitment to human rights and press freedom.” GambiaAfrica RSF_en News Follow the news on Gambia June 16, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Justice for Deyda Hydara” radio spot launched in run-up to African Union summit in Banjul Help by sharing this information January 27, 2020 Find out more to go further News July 23, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

For over 60 years, these two foundations have worked side by side in Pasadena to support local non-profits. In June, the PCHF Board voted to dissolve as a private foundation and continue its mission as a component fund of the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF).According to Board Chair, Tara Westman, “the PCHF Board saw that efficiencies could be achieved and long term grant making could grow through this new arrangement. PCF has staffed the PCHF for the past 18 months, and together we have done a lot of analysis and thinking about how best to ensure the perpetuity of the Foundation’s work.” PCHF’s assets of approximately $6.0 million the represents the largest single gift to the Pasadena Community Foundation in its history.In 1994 PCHF received $5 million, a 20% share of a trust that had been established in 1928 with 500 shares of IBM stock – at the time worth just over $12,000. This significant gift allowed PCHF to make an even greater impact in the community.Now, as a component fund of PCF, the PCHF will be able to take advantage of both cost savings and streamlined administration. Gloria Pitzer, PCHF’s Treasurer, said: “It became clear that working with PCF not only offered the opportunity to share knowledge in terms of how to better serve local child-health related non-profits, but also would cut costs significantly. In today’s difficult economic environment, small foundations can struggle to grow their assets in order to keep pace with both inflation and community need. We – the PCHF Board – wanted to make sure that this money was available to do good in our community forever. And working with PCF, who knows this community so well, will only further strengthen our ability to impact child health issues in Pasadena.”For more information, visit www.pchf.org and www.pasadenacf.org. 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFollow This Summer Most Popular Celeb Beauty TrendHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeauty Business News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Tourism with hopes of bringing to life the city’s iconic venues, endless sunshine and natural beauty, according to a press release.“It shows all of the reasons why LA would be the perfect host for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said LA 2024’s Luca ServodioThe landmark Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum stands tall at the front of the float, with a flame burning atop its cauldron, as L.A.’s new Olympic logo—LA 2024’s Angel—flies high above the Coliseum’s famed peristyle.“It’s meant to show off the existing and iconic infrastructure that exists in Los Angeles,” explained Servodio.The middle of the sprawling float features a true to code beach volleyball court in between big wave swells to represent the the city’s love for sports and outdoor activities, according to Servodio.Top Olympic and Paralympic legends including Nadia Comaneci, Bart Conner, Lex Gillette, April Ross, Haley Anderson, Candace Cable, Dawn Harper-Nelson, Holly McPeak, Howard Shu, Sinjin Smith and Rudy Garcia Tolson will ride the float on January 2, 2017 along with young Angeleno athletes with the LA84 Foundation, the youth sports non-profit funded by the success of the 1984 Games.“We’re happy to be here with our Youth Ambassadors program who are student athletes from all around the city and they’re here to help work on the float,” said LA84 Spokesperson Jeremy Rosenberg.“My family always went out early to watch the floats during the Parade and I’ve never seen the behind the scenes so it’s really cool and I’m so excited,” said LA 84 Foundation athlete Ezra Frech.The float marks the City of L.A.’s 119th consecutive year collaborating with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, making one of the longest running float entries in Rose Parade history. No local taxpayer dollars were used in the creation or production of the float.“This float is going to blow people’s minds because they’re going to realize that this float as well as all the people on it really exemplifies the echoes of success and the success of Los Angeles in the past olympic games that it’s held,” said Cable. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Make a comment Community News Sneak Peak of City of L.A.’s ‘Follow the Sun’ Float That Celebrates The 2024 Olympic Bid Story and Photography by BRANDON VILLALOVOS Published on Thursday, December 29, 2016 | 5:35 am Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday center_img Your email address will not be published.

The petitioners also raised the grievance that the State Government has not issued proper guidelines for online classes. In the absence of clear instructions on online classes, teachers are passing off mere voice clips as if they would amount to online classes, the petitioners stated.”The charging of fees for the period during which there will be no classes is unreasonable and liable to be interfered with…The right of the petitioners and other students to get education will be affected by the same. The lack of proper directions from the part of the Government is the reason for the same and the situation prevailing in Kerala in this regard necessitates and justifies interference of this Hon’ble Court to issue directions to the Government and place interim measures till such a decision is taken”,read the petition filed through Advocates Manu Ramachandran, M Kiranlal, R Rajesh, T S Sarath and Sameer Nair.On May 12, the Uttarkhand High Court had passed an order to stop private schools, which were not conducting online classes, from demanding tuition fee during the lockdown period. Challenging this direction, the schools had approached the SC, and the apex court issued notices on the SLPs last week.Click here to download interim orderRead Interim OrderNext Storylast_img read more
