The UK Minister for Sport and Civil Society has backed a new safer gambling campaign that will launch this weekend to help remove the stigma around gambling addiction and give people more courage to say they need help. Problem gambling funding body GambleAware’s new Bet Regret initiative aims to raise awareness of impulsive betting in order to encourage moderation and reduce gambling-related harm across the UK. Developed as part of the Government’s Gambling Review, the campaign is being targeted a men between the ages of 16 and 34 that gamble regularly on sport, mainly online. GambleAware said the estimated audience for the project is some 2.4 million, which would make the campaign the largest of its kind. GambleAware has said it developed the new initiative after extensive research, consultations with academic experts and focus groups with frequent bettors. The first advert in the campaign will be broadcast during this weekend’s Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool on Sky Sports. GambleAware said the match is traditionally the most watched Premier League game of the season. Mims Davies, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, has praised the work done by GambleAware, saying the new campaign could have a major impact on tackling problem gambling in the UK. “This ground-breaking joint campaign will make people think hard about their betting habits, assist to remove the stigma around gambling addiction and give people more courage to say they need help,” Davies said. “It is crucial that we both focus on prevention as well as cure and this campaign will help to educate people to recognise risky play. I am determined to deliver more collaborative work to help to change behaviours to reduce the threat of problem gambling.” Bet Regret is being funded through additional donations to GambleAware, in line with a joint commitment by the broadcasting, advertising and gambling industries to the UK Government. BT Sport, ITV, Channel 4, Google, and Clear Channel are among the other parties that have agreed to support the campaign, which will also run across digital and social channels.Speaking to iGamingBusiness.com, GambleAware CEO Marc Etches said the idea of the project is to encourage people to think about their betting habits. The launch of the campaign comes as the UK Gambling Commission also announced the launch of a consultation on gambling with credit cards, with several leading credit providers vowing to play their part in minimising problem gambling.“There are two million adults experiencing some level of harm including 340,000 problem gamblers, so we must make sure sufficient protections are in place to help those who are more vulnerable to developing a problem,” Etches said. GambleAware worked with the Safer Gambling Board during the development of the campaign. The Board comprises representatives from Public Health England, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the London South Bank University Centre for Addictive Behaviours Research and GambleAware itself. Sian Griffiths, chair of the Safer Gambling Campaign Board, GambleAware trustee and interim deputy chair of Public Health England, said: “The Bet Regret campaign is about raising awareness of behaviours that people might not always recognise as impulsive or risky, such as betting when drunk, bored or chasing losses. “We want people to identify with the campaign, realise they too have those kick-yourself moments when betting and reflect on their behaviours, thus preventing future ill-considered bets which are so often the pathway towards harm.” The new campaign comes after the Government in January announced plans to commit extra funds to problem gambling treatment in the UK as part of a long-term health plan. Some £2.3bn (€2.6bn/$3.0bn) a year will be invested in mental health services, including problem gambling and gambling addiction, by 2023/24. GambleAware was quick to praise the move, saying the long-term strategy would help it to improve the services it offers those affected by problem gambling.last_img read more

It called for the bishops to consider such a move in recognition of “the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed in their parish church.” In a statement today, the Church said that the bishops had “prayerfully considered whether a new nationally commended service might be prepared to mark a gender transition” and had decided against.Read the entire article here.

Business Analytics in 2020: The Upcoming Prediction

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear TAGS2020AnalyticsBusiness Previous articleDepartment of Health announces two presumptive positive COVID-19 cases in FLORIDANext articleApopka Burglary Report Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Current State of ThingsFortunately, it’s fairly easy to find lots of helpful tools that will provide you with pretty much any information you’ll ever need, be it related to your business or not so much:Performance statistics;Global market statistics;Task management;Scheduling statistics and advice.These make up just a tiny fraction of what modern business intelligence tools can provide you with today. And this is by no means the case of quantity over quality. Automated sorting systems and customer service chatbots are handling their designated tasks pretty well. Especially considering their current capabilities are thought to be the very first ginger steps software development is taking.Human supervision and support are still a vital part of any system, but you can already see the changes new technologies bring. Office analysts are slowly making way for cloud workers. Static boards and spreadsheets are dying out and are being replaced with digital reports and interactive online boards. The need for personal face-to-face interaction is losing its role in favor of efficiency.And that creates a sea of opportunities for the younger generation. Making a living without even leaving your room has become a reality. Things are moving too far too fast. For instance, the ability to gather an impressive and competent team for a specific task without the constraints of the geographical location has made it possible to outsource your paperwork simply by typing EssayPro into your search engine.PrognosisNow, you might think there’s absolutely nowhere to go; further, everything is already discovered and mastered. All the complex and layered business intelligence tools are more or less the best you can get. But the matter of fact is, the current systems can’t handle the sheer volume. You may be okay for now as a small to medium-sized start-up, but large companies’ analysts are struggling.So we have to take another step forward, but where to? The answer is AI-powered systems. Artificial intelligence may still be a bit of a futuristic thing to throw around. However, the progress science has achieved in developing self-learning programs is pretty impressive. This slow and steady progress will eventually allow us to analyze insane loads of information with the current manual approach simply takes too much time and effort to do it efficiently.Even despite all this, when it comes to 2020, it’s highly unlikely we’ll see the fabled takeover of machines. Ignoring the predictions that 40% of current analytics will be automated, BI analysts are still very much needed to aid big companies to make sense of the terabytes of data they receive on a daily basis. In fact, there is a growing shortage of qualified specialists in this field.How to Make Use of ItThe implications of AI technology progress are pretty exciting. On the one hand, researching and introducing innovations into the business can help you get the upper hand on a competitive market. Even though much of the systems available today are either basic or experimental, getting a grasp on how they work is definitely an advantage.On the other hand, complete automatization seems to be too far in the future to dismiss manual work altogether. The shortage of personnel in the BI analytics field opens up tons of opportunities for young and ambitious specialists. Becoming a qualified data analyst in this field has immense prospects, provided you have what it takes.There are several ways you can go about getting into this sort of work, which allows for some space for a maneuver. However, analytics is very much like a STEM field. You should be one hundred percent sure it is what you need before you go ahead and pursue a related degree or get a job. The prospects can be tempting, but your personal aptitude is what matters most.Final WordsThe way business is handled rapidly changes with the rise of new technologies. And adapting to this process is extremely important not only for established companies but also for the younger generation of entrepreneurs. Overall it seems that the introduction of new methods and systems into work evens out the field. This will allow for small projects to stay on the market, even surrounded by massive corporations. grademiners.com Reply Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Great post fellas!

Mathieu Bastareaud returns to action with two big tackles

first_imgMonday Aug 24, 2009 Mathieu Bastareaud returns to action with two big tackles Stade Francais centre Mathieu Bastareaud returned to action last weekend in the Top 14, playing for the first time since the New Zealand tour drama with France.The 21 year old had a troubled few months after he lied about being mugged while on tour in New Zealand, resulting in him being sent home and the truth later being revealed following an admission that he actually just fell over when drunk.He is now facing the possibility of a lengthy international ban, between one to three years, which will be decided on by the French Rugby Federation next month.French team mate Thierry Dusautoir is pleading for leniency stating that he feels the young man has been sufficiently punished already.If he lied, I think he has been sufficiently punished for that, he said. This affair has been taken out of proportion. It would be good that we left it there.I also think that in saying what he said, he was far from imagining the consequences of this lie and that he was taken over by the events, said Dusautoir.He returned to action last weekend coming on as a substitute against Toulon in the opening round of the French championship, the Top 14.He made a few bullocking runs and put in a great tackle on Sinoti Sinoti. Against Bayonne on Friday, Bastareaud once again got stuck in, coming on as a sub and dumping Craig Gower.Whether Bastareaud plays for France again in the near future or not remains to be seen.When you consider that players who take drugs get 9 months, those who stick fingers in eyes get 8 months, and those who blatantly cheat end up with 4 months, a lengthy ban for telling a lie, off the field, seems pretty harsh. :: Related Posts :: Toulon draw with Stade Francais in Top 14 opener Mathieu Bastareaud admits he lied about being assaulted in New Zealand Time: 01:32ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Ireland start campaign with comfortable win over Scotland

first_imgSunday Feb 2, 2014 Ireland start campaign with comfortable win over Scotland Ireland scored three tries as they started their 2014 Six Nations campaign with a comfortable 28-6 win over Scotland in Dublin earlier today. While Scotland showed flashes of class at times, they never really tested the Irish.While things were fairly even in the first half, with Ireland leading just 6-3 a few minutes before the break, a try by Andrew Trimble on the stroke of half time gave them an 11-3 cushion. Man of the Match Jamie Heaslip came close to scoring earlier in the half after a brilliant Jonny Sexton break, but was out by inches in the corner. He crossed in the second though, and Ireland were on course to right the wrongs of last season.Rob Kearney added a third try ten minutes from time, on the occasion of his 50th Testm while brother Dave came close minutes from the final whistle after a Paddy Jackson chip.Scotland will need to lift themselves again when they host England in a week, while Ireland will look to upset Six Nations champions Wales, also at home in Dublin.Full highlights will be slotted in here as soon as they’re available. For now, here are quick highlights, and you can view the Sexton break and Heaslip chance on page two of this postJamie Heaslip came close to scoring in the first half after a brilliant break from Jonny Sexton, but as replays showed, he was in touch.

In many ways, the historic New York City townhouse is not compatible with a contemporary family’s way of life. The first and most important concept was to reinterpret the classic townhouse but customize it to the client’s request of having a join family space at the parlor level, where members of the family move fluidly between the kitchen, dining and living rooms; and have a visual and program connection with the rear courtyard; another interpretation of the typical American family house but in an urban context.Save this picture!© Francisc Dzikowski Photography Inc.The rest of the floor levels were strictly defined by their own program and vertical circulations, allowing the most efficient way of space planning; and having as much natural light and ventilation as possible, especially in the core of the floor plate, which in the majority of historic townhouses are dark and unpleasant spaces.Save this picture!Floor PlanWhile the design of the building is unquestionably contemporary, it relates to its classic NYC context as an abstract reinterpretation of the classic Brownstone Townhouse, from the materiality to the alignment of the façade elements. The front façade is pushed in and out to align with the neighboring building and the used of the classic steel and brick but with a strong contemporary language, that it’s consistent throughout the entire building, stands out in its immediate context.Save this picture!© Francisc Dzikowski Photography Inc.The design of the exterior areas of the house were as important as the interiors, as a couple with 3 kids, the client needed to have as much patio area as possible, from playground areas in the ground floor, to more private and serene balconies, to a orchard roof deck, and all these landscape program needed to be harmoniously connected with their correspondent interior spaces.Save this picture!© Francisc Dzikowski Photography Inc.Project gallerySee allShow lessOpen for Submissions: Re-Imagining Toronto’s “Winter Stations”Architecture NewsMini House / Agustina RuivalSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeBen Hansen ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew YorkHousesUnited StatesPublished on November 14, 2014Cite: “State Street Townhouse / Ben Hansen Architect” 14 Nov 2014.

Fundraising Regulator looks at adding online fundraising platforms to Code in new consultation

first_img  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Melanie May | 31 January 2018 | News Fundraising Regulator looks at adding online fundraising platforms to Code in new consultation 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 www.thepurplepim.com. The Fundraising Regulator has today (31 January) launched a three-part consultation on the Code of Fundraising Practice that aims to improve standards in relation to online fundraising platforms, complaints handling and the TPS Assured Certification.The Fundraising Regulator‘s consultation has two separate timescales.  Parts A and B of the consultation ask for feedback on specific issues raised by the sector in relation to complaints handling and the TPS Assured Certification. The deadline for response on these is 28 February 2018. Part C proposes to introduce a new section to the Code for online fundraising platforms and aims to ensure that platforms provide adequate and clear good practice guidance to individuals setting up a fundraising page on their sites. It also aims to ensure relevant platforms follow the legal requirements set out within the recently introduced Payment Services Regulation 2017. The deadline for response here is 14 March 2018. SEE ALSO: Summit held with fundraising platforms over transparency of online giving (4 October 2017)The proposed new sector on online fundraising platforms comes as a result of engagement between the Fundraising Regulator, fundraising platforms, and the Financial Conduct Authority. According to the Regulator, all three parties have recognised that there is now a need for regulation in this area as a result of a sharp rise in the use of fundraising platforms over the past few years by members of the public wanting to raise money for causes they care about.Wonderful.org founder Kieron James commented: “We’re pleased a spotlight has been cast on the often unclear fees charged by fundraising websites and steps are being made to move towards an industry standard where one single cost is represented clearly from the outset. This will help fundraisers and charities make an informed decision on which fundraising platform to use for their campaigns.”The consultation document can be found here.

Mensaje de solidaridad del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero a la gente de Mexico

first_imgLa membresía del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero se une al dolor del valiente pueblo mexicano que sufre las terribles consecuencias del terremoto de gran magnitud – 7,1 en la escala Richter – el pasado martes 19 de septiembre.Hacemos eco de los múltiples mensajes y expresiones de solidaridad emitidas desde diferentes lugares del mundo. El pueblo de México no está solo.Hemos visto con mucha tristeza las desgarradoras imágenes de edificios y otras estructuras colapsadas y el creciente número de víctimas fatales – desde niños y niñas cuyas vidas han sido segadas prematuramente, hasta mujeres y hombres de todas las edades.Estando nuestro partido en las mismas entrañas de ese imperio violento y cruel que es Estados Unidos, nos llena de mucho disgusto el hecho que la mala, fascista y guerrerista administración de este país no haya demostrado la necesaria humanidad para ese pueblo hermano con el cual comparte su única frontera hacia el sur y cuyos territorios fueron robados al pueblo mexicano, tal como expresan las consignas de las y los migrantes mexicanos en Estados Unidos: “Nosotras/os no cruzamos la frontera; la frontera nos cruzó a nosotras/os”.Asimismo también nos llena de indignación que el mandatario mexicano Enrique Peña Nieto, en vez de poner todas las energías en terminar con la corrupción y la impunidad, sobre todo buscando y castigando con todo el peso de la ley a los responsables de la desaparición de las/os 43 estudiantes normalistas de Ayotzinapa, comulgue con las políticas guerreristas de Trump en contra de la hermana República Bolivariana de Venezuela.Pero ese pueblo mexicano que sufre ahora una tragedia más, está dando al mundo lecciones de solidaridad y cooperación entre sus residentes. Lecciones de soberanía. Brigadas de rescate de sindicatos, estudiantes y otras organizaciones se han dado a la dura y triste tarea de remover escombros en busca de sobrevivientes. El pueblo se ha organizado en diferentes comunidades para hacer lo necesario para brindar toda la ayuda posible. Esa es una muestra de la gran fortaleza del pueblo mexicano, del pueblo de gigantes como Emiliano Zapata. Es también una prueba de los que son capaces los pueblos cuando se unen.Nos comprometemos a elevar sus voces para que se brinden las ayudas necesarias desde acá en Estados Unidos y colaboraremos con los esfuerzos que está llevando a cabo la comunidad migrante residente en los diversos estados donde tenemos presencia.Un fuerte abrazo solidario desde nuestras trincheras.Teresa Gutiérrez y Berta Joubert-Ceci,Por el Comité Nacional del Partido Workers World-Mundo ObreroFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU students in National Guard ordered to assist Texas

first_img‘Liters for Life’ student campaign raises funds for global water crisis Twitter TCU Army ROTC cadets learn basic drill and ceremony techniques at one of the required ROTC labs.

The word ‘stars’ refers to generals.”It is always very dangerous for Cambodian journalists to handle reports of corruption among the power elites,” the press freedom organisation said. “We urge the authorities to carry out an exhaustive and impartial investigation to track down those behind these death threats and to provide Sopheap with protection if needed.”Information minister, Khieu Kanharith, has promised a full investigation.Since 2005, Sopheap has produced reports favourable to the Hun Sen government on the pro-government CTN channel. On 2 August he was taken off the review of the morning newspapers after mentioning a report on corruption within the state. Sopheap also presented a Sunday evening programme on the TV channel, which is owned by businessman Kit Meng.”I have often reported on remarks by the head of government, including when he threatened to sack, those, including the generals, who are implicated in expropriation of land,” Sopheap told the newspaper Cambodge Soir.Last July, the editor of Sralanh Khmer, You Saravuth, was forced to flee to Thailand after being charged with putting out “false information” and receiving death threats. He had published an article, implicating Hun Tho, a nephew of prime minister Hun Sen.
