Tags: Online Gambling Sweden’s government has approved plans to introduce a number of temporary restrictions for the country’s regulated online casino market as part of an effort to protect players from gambling-related harm during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The new measures will come into effect from 2 July and remain in place until the end of 2020, with the restrictions to apply to online casino games and slots.Consumers will face an SEK5,000 (£428/€476/$540) mandatory weekly deposit cap, while licensees will only be able to offer bonuses up to SEK100.Players will also be required to set time limits as to how long they play online casino games and slots with licensed operators in Sweden.“As a result of the current pandemic, we see a mix of circumstances that together create great risks in the gaming sector,” social security minister Ardalan Shekarabi said. “These need to be counteracted. With these measures, the government will strengthen the protection of Swedish consumers.”In addition, the government approved SEK500,000 in funding for the Public Health Authority (Folkhälsomyndigheten) to carry out further studies into problem gambling during the pandemic.The organisation will be required to report its findings to the Ministry of Social Affairs by the end of February 2021.“We need in-depth knowledge of how problem gambling is affected by the corona pandemic,” social minister Lena Hallengren said. “This is important for preventing gambling addiction in the future.”The decision to implement the temporary measures will after licensed operators and industry associations strongly opposed the plans. Shekarabi had previously stated that the restrictions would also cover sports betting and horse racing, but these were later made exempt in response to criticism. However, despite these amendments, Swedish gambling operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) last week urged the government to drop the measures, saying that the most recent set of changes would seriously harm the market and its licensees by pushing players to unlicensed providers.Sweden’s gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has also been critical of the plans, this week warning that amendments to the rules may make them even more difficult to implement by 2 July.Meanwhile, chief executives from a host of Swedish licensees signed a petition – organised by BOS – in protest of the measures. Betsson, Kindred Group, LeoVegas, NetEnt and William Hill were among those that spoke out against the plans.Earlier this week, chief executives from nine major Sweden-facing operators and suppliers put forward a series of alternative player protection measures that they said would be more effective than the stake limit.However, with government approval all but securing the measures, operators and organisations will now have to prepare to implement the restrictions from next month.Fintan Costello, managing director of affilite marketing specialist BonusFinder.com, condemned the decision to forge ahead with the restrictions, arguing the measures will hinder channelisation efforts, and put operators at risk of enforcement action due to the short timescale for their implementation. “This decision by the Swedish government will only drive more players to the black market which is just a click away,” Costello explained. “Further bonus restrictions and relying on hard deposit limits instead of affordability checks will make the legal market even less appealing to local players.“Furthermore, giving licensees only two weeks to implement these changes and alter marketing will be a huge and costly challenge for operators.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Sweden’s government has approved plans to introduce a number of temporary restrictions for the country’s regulated online casino market as part of an effort to protect players from gambling-related harm during the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. 11th June 2020 | By contenteditor Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Swedish government approves temporary online casino limits Legal & compliance

Photo: Diocese of Texas[University of the South School of Theology press release] The Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander, dean of the University of the South’s School of Theology, announced May 13 the appointment of the Rt. Rev. James Tengatenga, Ph.D., as distinguished visiting professor of global Anglicanism. Tengatenga will begin officially on July 1, 2014. He will teach courses in missiology, contemporary global Anglicanism, and related subjects.“I am honored to be appointed to this position and it is my prayer that I will be able to share my knowledge and experience of the church, what God is doing with his people worldwide and the church’s role in God’s Mission,” said Tengatenga. “It is always an honour to participate in the formation of leaders. It is an invitation to participate in the future.”In 2013, The School of Theology adopted a strategic plan that included a goal to establish shared programs and defined partnerships across the Anglican Communion.Commenting on this strategic initiative, the dean noted, “Dr. Tengatenga has few peers in his extensive experience in the leadership of the Anglican Communion and his understanding church’s mission throughout the world. His leadership of the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion and of the Anglican Consultative Council gives him a comprehensive knowledge of Anglican mission throughout the world that few can equal. Bringing this rich experience to our academic program is an enormous gift to our students, and his knowledge of the Anglican Communion will be vital to Sewanee’s deeper engagement in the life of the worldwide church.”First as a priest, and later as bishop of Southern Malawi for 15 years, Tengatenga has been a tireless advocate for human rights, particularly for youth and women. Within the broader African context, he has contributed positively to the ongoing conversations with respect to the full inclusion of gay and lesbian persons in the life of the church.Tengatenga has been involved in HIV ministry as a member of the Malawi National AIDS Commission that coordinates the national response to HIV and AIDS.Tengatenga resigned his position as bishop of Southern Malawi in order to accept a position as the dean of the William Jewett Tucker Foundation at Dartmouth College, a position for which he was eminently qualified as to his capabilities and character. Unfortunately, due to controversy created by third parties and persons, Dartmouth withdrew its offer. (The matter between Dartmouth and Tengatenga has since been amicably resolved.) He was soon thereafter appointed as a Presidential Fellow at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Mass.Upon hearing news of this appointment, Dr. Ian Douglas, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut, said, “Bishop James Tengatenga is one of the most significant Christian leaders in the worldwide Anglican Communion. He is passionate about and dedicated to God’s mission to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. Sewanee will find in Bishop James a caring and pastoral presence committed to forming global Christian leaders. The University of the South will be blessed to have him on the Mountain.”Tengatenga was born in Kwekwe, in what was then Rhodesia, on April 7, 1958. In 1979 he began theological training and priestly formation at Zomba Theological College in Malawi. He continued theological training at the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, where he earned a master of divinity degree and was ordained a priest in 1985. He has done graduate work at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Malawi, as well as honorary degrees from the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, and The General Theological Seminary in New York City.“The University is committed to serious scholarship and to the preparation of an educated ministry,” explains John M. McCardell Jr., vice-chancellor of the University of the South. “As part of our broader, long-range vision, we want to see students matriculating here from across the Anglican Communion. Dr. Tengatenga’s appointment underscores this global orientation as we seek to increase Sewanee’s diversity in both the college and The School of Theology.”###Sewanee: The University of the South comprises a nationally recognized College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, a School of Letters, and a distinguished School of Theology (seminary and The Beecken Center) serving The Episcopal Church. Located on 13,000 acres atop Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau, Sewanee enrolls 1,550 undergraduates and approximately 170 seminarians in master’s and doctoral programs annually.

This demands a strategic placement of the house that allows permeability and privacy to coexist. Save this picture!© Santiago PinyolIn order to achieve this, the project assembles three elongated modules that seclude the residence from the adjacent lots on the north and south. At the same time, the modules open themselves towards the scenic views and the morning to afternoon sun path on the east and west. Courtyards (patios) break the modules and bring light, natural ventilation and landscape features inside the residence.Save this picture!DiagramThe structure enhances the spatial concept of the house. Load bearing walls (fins), in addition to floor and roof slabs, complete a simple and pragmatic structural principle that performs well in high seismic risk areas such as this one. It also builds upon the spatial intentions as it allows for the different spaces to relate visually and physically without the obstruction of columns.Save this picture!© Santiago PinyolThe façade is reduced to a palette of three materials that respond efficiently to the temperature and climate conditions of its context. They are also materials easily found and adequately built with little or no maintenance issues.

Tagged with: Research / statistics BBC Multiplatform The partnership with BBC Multiplatform resulted in ground breaking content and features across BBC online and BBC iPlayer. This included clickable noses ‘peeking out’ on most BBC online pages, driving to relevant content on rednoseday.com. There was a complete takeover of CBBC with a sharing of games and other feature content. BBC iPlayer featured exclusive content and on Saturday 14 March, BBC iPlayer reported that all ten of its most requested content spots were taken up by Red Nose Day content. A key element of the BBC’s Red Nose Day site this year was the day to day coverage of the Kilimanjaro climb. Audiences could catch up on the day’s adventures via video diaries from the mountain which could be accessed via the radio one and Red Nose Day pages.All partnersAll Red Nose Day partners, such as Sainsbury’s, TK Maxx, BT & Subway supported the campaign with an integrated digital approach resulting in maximum impact across, social media activity and the spread of unique viral content.Mobile PhonesAn extraordinary £7.8 million was raised for Red Nose Day through £1 and £5 text donations. It was the first time the public had been able to text knowing that every penny would go to Comic Relief, thanks to mobile operators waiving their usual fees and the Treasury confirming that because of this no VAT will be charged on these donations.Social mediaA ground breaking agreement with Facebook resulted in the sale of a fundraising ‘gift’ red nose, with a 100% donation to Red Nose Day. On the night a large number of our 225,000 Facebook fans were interacting with celebs and commenting on the TV show live. A Red Nose Day Facebook hackathon took place and a winning ‘Donate Your Status’ application went live to aid the campaign.A celebrity presenter hosted each of the social network Red Nose Day pages – with Harry Hill on Facebook, Scott Mills on Youtube, George Sampson on Bebo and Alex Zane on MySpace generating much interest and interactivity.Twitter was utilised as the only outlet where people could follow the ‘BT Red Nose Climb’ live. This is estimated to have been followed live by over 175,000 people across Twitter (22,000 followers) and the feed being embedded in bbc.co.uk and rednoseday.com.iTunesThe Red Nose Day digital campaign dominated the iTunes charts with unique iPhone noses and applications, classic content and this years best sketches (available for purchase or download immediately following broadcast of the programme), a weekly podcast and the two Red Nose Day singles also reached number one and number two in their respective charts.For the first time ever, for a 48 hour period, Comic Relief turned the UK Singles Chart red. 20p from any Top 40 song downloaded via the iTunes UK store as listed in the midweek charts went to Comic Relief.Content (video & viral)Over 50 short films were made exclusively for the web and included a ‘Comic Relief commercial’ by Fallon and a ‘Cadbury’s eyebrow’ spoof by the noses (400,000 views between them). Over five million views have been generated for Red Nose Day content. For the first time piracy and monetisation of the content was managed at source, enabling this content to become a further income source for the charity.E-mail ActivityA comprehensive email strategy was carried out to generate as much interaction with the various Comic Relief ‘interested’ databases and across the social networks. Unprecedented levels of ‘take up’ and participation in fundraising or organising for Red Nose Day was achieved with over 116,000 people clicking through to renoseday.com from an email received.The NosesThe three Red Noses were animated for the digital campaign and the TV branding were run with the same overall look and feel. These were made available online for users to make their own web films – resulting in over 50 Red Nose user generated content films on YouTube. A digital Red Nose was sold for the first time online at microsite digitalrednose.com, to compliment the ‘real life’ Red Noses, generating £20,000 of sales.EndsFor further Information:Sophie King, Press Office020 7820 [email protected] Relief’s vision is to create a just world, free from povertyComic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England / Wales); SC039730 (Scotland)Comic Relief spends all the money raised giving extremely poor and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa a helping hand to turn their lives aroundThe Red Nose Day campaign was managed and co-ordinated in-house at Comic Relief with support in specific areas from the following agencies; Digital Outlook, Fallon, Blue State Digital, Superfad, Raycomm, Big Mouth Media, My Video Rights, Twestival, Amberlight, 7th Chamber.The Comic Relief promiseIn order to run itself in a professional and effective way Comic Relief incurs necessary significant costs. Raising funds, making grants and organisational overheads cost real money.Despite these costs, Comic Relief is still able to promise that for every pound the charity gets directly from the public a pound goes to helping transform the lives of people living with poverty and social injustice. If Red Nose Day raises £50 million, Comic Relief will spend at least £50 million doing just that.It can make this promise because its operating budget is covered in cash or in kind from all types of supporters like corporate sponsors and donors, suppliers, generous individuals and government (including Gift Aid) as well as from investment income and interest.

Shops and trading income increased from €3.6 million to €3.8 million, with net income up from €0.8 million to €0.95 million.The charity’s lottery income declined during 2011, with sales down from €370,000 to €313,000. During 2011, ICS received €209,729 (2010: €340,105) from the scheme established to assist charitable lotteries whose products are in direct competition with the products being sold by the National Lottery.www.cancer.ie Tagged with: Finance Ireland Research / statistics 28 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The Asda Foundation has announced that its local disaster fund is rising to £500,000 to help communities affected by the December 2015 floods over the next 12 months.The money is being used to provide community groups and charities with food, water, clothing, cleaning materials and products and support during the flood clean up. It also includes a colleague hardship fund to support Asda colleagues whose homes are affected by local disasters.Following the floods, the foundation has been working in York and Halifax to deliver cleaning packs to charities and community groups to distribute to affected properties in the area.The foundation has also been providing food, cleaning materials and clothing to residents in other affected areas, while ASDA employees have been helping in the clean up and providing collection points at stores for anyone who wishes to donate items to their community.Chair of the Asda Foundation Alex Simpson said:“This is an extremely challenging time for families and communities, and could not come at a worse time of year for them. Store colleagues have been absolutely fantastic in supporting their neighbours – from joining the clean-ups in their areas to providing emergency supplies to community groups and charities to distribute where they’re needed the most. The decision to increase our local disaster fund to £500,000 was an easy one for the trustees to make.” Tagged with: Asda disaster Funding 74 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Advertisement Asda Foundation increases fund to help flooding crisis 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.

Remember the #firstfiver campaign that encouraged the public to donate the first new polymer £5 they received to a charity of their choice? Now there is a complementary opportunity to repeat that – by asking the public to donate their last old £5 note to their favourite charity.Old £5 notes will cease to be legal tender on Friday 5 May 2017. So the Bank of England is inviting us to use them before then. And what better way than to donate them to charity?As with any banknote withdrawal, that date isn’t quite finite. You will still be able to exchange old fivers at face value in perpetuity – but only by presenting them to the Bank of England on Threadneedle Street in the City of London.Not surprisingly, John Thompson, who came up with the idea of the #fivergiver campaign – which CAF estimates raised £12.5 million! – saw this coming and is hoping that the public will be inspired to make the same gesture with the last of their old fivers.His suggested campaign hashtag is #FinalFiver. Tagged with: Fundraising ideas Individual giving Money New tenner to comeThese opportunities are not going away. This summer will see the introduction of the first polymer £10 note, featuring a picture (probably not a likeness, incidentally) of Jane Austen. And that will be followed by the £20 polymer note.You can bet that John Thompson – or Johnny Five, as his Twitter handle now reads – is ready to spring into action with those opportunities too.
