The US would see a sharp drop, gradually bottoming out before gradually gathering pace again, making a U-shaped recovery. The Bric nations would see a rapid decline followed by a rapid recovery, hence the V-shape.However, with the US recovering much more quickly than expected the shape has changed to LVV, or LuVVy.The agency is hoping to capitalise on the rapid recovery in the Bric nations with rapid expansion into China and Brazil. It says the Brics and the “next-11” nations (Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, South Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Turkey and Vietnam) are streets ahead of the US and Europe.

Camelot backs National Lottery minimum age increase

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland “William Hill welcomes the gambling review which the Government has launched today,” Bengtsson said. “Our industry is more committed than ever to keeping gambling as safe as possible and we have been getting on with raising standards. Whether it’s ensuring under-18s and vulnerable people are not exposed to gambling adverts or identifying at-risk players through technology, we are continually driving up standards to ensure gambling remains a safe and fun pursuit for millions of people in the UK. Camelot backs National Lottery minimum age increase “We’ve said all along that we would fully support any decision made by the government to raise the minimum age to play,” a Camelot spokesperson said. “Now that a decision has been made to raise the age to 18 by October 2021, we’ll be doing everything we can to implement all of the changes that will be necessary as quickly as possible, while ensuring that we maintain the very high standards demanded of The National Lottery.  Meanwhile, leading betting operators Flutter Entertainment and William Hill have both also welcomed the review, building on the support that the Betting and Gaming Council gave the process. “We look forward to engaging with the Government throughout the review to ensure that any new regulations work alongside progress made by our industry and provide clarity and certainty for customers, operators and all those who work in the sector.” Flutter chief executive Peter Jackson also supported the review and said he hoped to see major changes brought about. The change in age will be implemented by October 2021, following a consultation. However, Camelot said it planned to implement all of the necessary changes significantly ahead of this date. Topics: Legal & compliance Lottery Social responsibility Casino regulation Lottery regulation Marketing regulation CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling While Czech gaming giant Sazka Group and Indian lottery operator and technology provider Sugal & Damani have each announced that they will bid, Camelot has so far only confirmed that it has completed the Gambling Commission’s Selection Questionnaire, and has not yet announced an official bid. “It is important that the review is evidence-led, strikes the right balance between protecting the vulnerable and the continued enjoyment of the many tens of millions who happily place the occasional bet, as well as taking a critical look at the growing risks of the black market where there are no consumer protections,” he said.center_img Bengtsson added that he hoped to see an evidence-led review that would balance consumer protection for at-risk gamblers with a reasonable degree of freedom for the majority of customers. After the Government announced that it would raise the the National Lottery age requirement, citing changes in how the game has played with increasing growth of online and instant win games, Camelot said it supported the decision. UK National Lottery operator Camelot says it supports the UK Government’s decision to increase the minimum age to play the National Lottery from 16 to 18 and will take steps to implement the change by April, rather than October. William Hill chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson said large operators have been committed to raising standards and he was excited to work with the Government to keep gambling safe. “The Gambling Act review needs to be a moment of radical change in the UK,” Jackson said. “Everything should be on the table, evaluated on the basis of substantive evidence. We must seize this opportunity for change in the interests of those who wish to see a safer, bettor future for everyone connected to gambling.” In August, the Gambling Commission launched the process to award the fourth National Lottery tender, with Camelot having won each of the prior three.  Legal & compliance “We’ve already started this work in preparation and, subject to receiving the appropriate licence variations and waivers from the Gambling Commission, we’re aiming to complete all of the changes that are needed in our online channels by early April 2021 and, in our retail channel, over the course of the summer – well in advance of the change in law,” the spokesperson said. 9th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle The announcement was made alongside the review of the Gambling Act, announced yesterday (8 December). The review will ask questions on the effect of stake limits and universal deposit limits. Meanwhile, questions about advertising and bonuses suggest anything up to a complete ban on the major acquisition channels could potentially be on the table. Email Addresslast_img read more

Quade Cooper’s slick pass in dramatic Toulon win over Racing 92

first_imgTuesday Mar 29, 2016 Quade Cooper’s slick pass in dramatic Toulon win over Racing 92 Toulon snuck past Racing 92 this past weekend with a dramatic 21-20 win that left Italian prop Martin Castrogiovanni a little red-faced after he gave away a penalty with time up. Earlier in the match Quade Cooper pulled off this slick piece of skill while being tackled by Dan Carter.Cooper, recently back from his time on the World Series Sevens circuit, was playing in the fairly unfamiliar role of fullback, but still had time to show off some of that trademark magic.With time almost up, Racing broke away and All Black great Carter scored what seemed like the winning converted try, before Castrogiovanni’s blunder at the restart gave Toulon’s Frederic Michalak a shot at snatching the win, which he slotted down the middle.You can view Cooper’s neat bit of skill above, and the highlights recap belowcredit: rugbyxv & canalplusADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Lloyds Scholars volunteer over 60,000 hours

first_img  49 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 In the run-up to Student Volunteering Week, which starts on 22nd February, the Lloyds Scholars programme has announced that it has contributed more than 60,000 volunteering hours to help local communities over the past five years.The programme offers financial support, employment opportunities and mentoring to undergraduates from low-income families at eight UK universities in return for at least 100 hours per year of volunteering to help causes in their local community.The universities are: University College London, University of Bath, University of Birmingham, University of Bristol, The University of Edinburgh, University of Oxford, The University of Sheffield, and The University of Warwick.Examples of the fundraising work that Lloyds Scholars have been involved in include a number of undergraduates at University of Bath. Matt Baldwin, a first-year student, is organising a group trip for people from the university to go and run the Budapest Marathon in aid of Worldwide Cancer Research, while Sophie Pownall, also a first-year student, ran the Shoebox appeal for Rotary International, sending over 120 boxes to children in Eastern Europe, and Michael Ciccone (pictured), has already spent more than 70 hours fundraising for a number of charities including Send a Cow.Paul O’Neill, head of Lloyds Scholars, said:“Volunteering and helping local communities sits right at the heart of our business strategy to help Britain Prosper and it is fantastic to see that so many Lloyds Scholars have found the experience benefits them and their development.”To get involved, charities need to get in touch with the individual university volunteering departments, which are responsible for coordinating the Scholar activity at each institution.

Im/migrants and the repressive state

first_imgA grassroots movement has been growing across the U.S. to counter the government’s brutal campaign targeting im/migrants. As more people of all ages die horrible deaths in the desert north of the border, in the border rivers and in detention camps — including the hellholes set up to warehouse small children and even babies cruelly separated from their parents — protests are continuing, as well as solidarity actions to provide asylum for those who cross the border to escape repression and hunger.At the same time, the racists and neofascists who applaud the Trump administration’s “America first” brand of vicious nationalism are pushing back against this progressive movement. Not able to summon sufficient forces in the streets to do so openly, they resort to vigilante attacks on migrants and online posts that reveal their racist and misogynist nature, like those calling for sexual assault against Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive Puerto Rican woman from the Bronx, N.Y.“America first” conceals the class character of U.S. foreign policy. The U.S. ruling class is thoroughly internationalist when it comes to how they have made their vast fortunes. They have been global exploiters since the late 1800s, when U.S. gunboats violently broke down the resistance of countries around the world. From Korea and the Philippines to Cuba and Puerto Rico, U.S. bankers and industrialists expanded their area of exploitation through war and conquest.It is the imperialists’ success in sucking out the wealth of the countries of Central America, pauperizing the population and backing brutally repressive regimes, that has driven so many families to risk their lives and leave their poverty-stricken lands in hope of finding work in the U.S.This “internationalist” ruling class at the same time promotes reactionary nationalism to the masses of people here, particularly to those whose ancestors immigrated from Europe. Racist white nationalism is the essence of Trumpism, even as it is a cover for a ruling class that respects no national boundaries in its drive for profits.The border crisis is now so severe that even some employees of the state have begun to complain about the conditions they are working under. Whether this comes from genuine empathy with the suffering migrants of all ages, or exasperation at being tasked with handling an impossible situation, it should not cloud an understanding of their role.Whether they are border police or jailers at the concentration camps set up to warehouse migrants, they are part of the repressive apparatus of the capitalist state. The organizations that represent police and jailers may be called unions, but they do not function as defenders of the working class against the bosses. In fact, these employees of the state will break strikes and lock up workers if they are ordered to do so.Those whose function it is to jail and warehouse immigrants don’t belong in the union movement. Border guards and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are members of the American Federation of Government Employees, the largest federal workers union. For AFGE to kick them out would be a great act of solidarity with im/migrant workers and would strengthen the international working class as a whole.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
