Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 15th August 2019 | By contenteditor Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus ramped up its player protection controls with plans to monitor its customer rewards programme to avoid encouraging excessive gambling, as well as establishing an Ethics Council to oversee responsible gaming efforts.The new safeguard, described as a “liability monitor”, will be used to flag promotions or offers that may encourage players to gamble more, allowing the operator to make necessary changes.“Social responsibility principles are central to all of Veikkaus’ operations,” the operator’s chair Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo explained. “It has continuously implemented measures to enhance social responsiblity safeguards, and the board regularly evaluates the causes of gambling problems.”This will be complemented by the formation of the Ethics Council, a measure which has been approved by the Veikkaus board. A more concrete plan, including the composition of the council, must now be drawn up by the operator’s executive management team ahead of the next board meeting.These new social responsiblity measures follow last week’s announcement that Veikkaus was to suspend advertising for all non-lottery products amid criticism of its marketing strategy. Faced with a public outcry at ads that were said to encourage excessive gambling, chief executive Olli Sarekoski admitted the company had made mistakes. As a result, he said, it would cancel advertising until the end of September, in order to conduct an in-depth review of promotional activities.The operator will also look to reduce the number of slot machines in operation across Finland. With new ID verification safeguards to be integrated to all Veikkaus gaming machines, the number of terminals will be reduced over the coming years, with the operator having removed table games from restaurants and its Pelaamo arcade chain.Finns are increasingly in favour of an end to Veikkaus’ monopoly over gambling, according to a survey published in April this year. The survey, conducted by polling specialist Bilendi on behalf of igaming affiliate Kasino Curt, suggested that almost a third of people favoured a licensing system for offshore operators.

Friday Funnies: James Haskell and Owen Farrell Best Mates Compilation

first_imgFriday Jul 22, 2016 Friday Funnies: James Haskell and Owen Farrell Best Mates Compilation A month ago, while England were on their successful tour of Australia, we were treated to some behind the scenes footage in the form of James Haskell winding up northerner Owen Farrell. The first video proved to be really popular, so here is a compilation of all of them together.Farrell gives it his best go but Haskell’s persistent attempts at bonding clearly get the better of him, with the archbishop of banterbury on top form during their adventures down under.Of course it’s all just a bit of a character Haskell is playing, but it makes for amusing viewing and it’s nice to see that there is always a bit of time for shenanigans, even during a tense Test series.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Funnies Related Articles 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: American reacts to brilliant Nigel… 29 WEEKS AGO Video of John Kirwan apologising while wearing… 29 WEEKS AGO Simon Zebo reveals how ‘absolute lunatic’… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

GSS launches new income-generating search engine branded for charities

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Midlands-based Global Search Solutions (GSS) has developed a branded search engine page for charities that will help them generate income. Each search on the site by supporters generates a small payment from the search engine provider, part of which GSS then donates to the charity.Dr Jeryl Shepherd Director at GSS said that the company was also extending the service to other companies provided that the money they generated was donated to charity or to its corporate social reponsibility.She said: “The great thing about this initiative is people can raise money by doing something that they do every day – searching the web and best of all it costs them absolutely nothing”. Advertisement Howard Lake | 26 August 2013 | News GSS launches new income-generating search engine branded for charities Dr Shepherd told UK Fundraising that the company had initially focused on sports charities, working with angling charities given the large number of people who take part in the sport. It is also working with football teams and their foundations, including Everton FC and their Everton in the Community charity, and with smaller charities such as Teams4U. How is GSS different?The model of a charity search engine is not new of course, with Everyclick and Easysearch being two of the longer standing examples.Dr Shepherd explained that Global Search Solutions passes 20% of the total search engine’s revenue to each charity. She pointed out that other providers might give 50% but that is “after expenses”.GSS offers two different templates, one single Google-style search bar and one with space for news and advertising space, the revenue from which is received by the charity with no deduction.GSS also works with partner charities to help them make the most of the opportunity. Dr Shepherd said that GSS helps “identify various user groups to approach and how best to implement and communicate with these groups over time ensuring promotion and maximum take up”.She added that “We are the only provider with an app for Blackberry, Android and iPhone.” The company was also working on a community for charity partners to enable them to communicate and learn from each other.

Media independence under threat in Burundi after BBC pull-out

first_img Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists The BBC failed to get the authorities to lift the sanctions, which were imposed on the grounds that it had endangered “national cohesion and reconciliation” and “breached professional ethics” by broadcasting a TV documentary accusing the Burundian security services of operating secret torture and detention sites with the aim of silencing dissent. Last month, the National Communication Council (CNC) threatened Radio France Internationale (RFI) with sanctions over an interview with a human rights activist that was deemed to have defamed Burundi. News Organisation June 5, 2020 Find out more And last week, the CNC accused the independent weekly newspaper Iwacu of “bias and defamation.” An Iwacu journalist, Jean Bigirimana, has meanwhile been missing ever since 22 July 2016 when, according to several witnesses, he was abducted by Burundian intelligence agents. With just days to go to the third anniversary of his abduction, the investigation into his disappearance is completely stalled and the authorities have yet to issue any statement on the subject. The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa BurundiAfrica Media independence EnvironmentFreedom of expression Help by sharing this information to go further November 27, 2020 Find out more Nshimirimana’s last position was running a sugar company and he has no knowledge or experience of Burundi’s media. “The BBC’s departure and the appointment of a militia chief to run the national radio and TV broadcaster – a person accused (along with his militia) of the most terrible atrocities – confirm an extremely disturbing absence of press freedom a year before the presidential election,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“Independent media were already barely able to operate in Burundi. Now their very survival is threatened by a regime bent on having an obedient press and a public debate with no dissenting voices.” BurundiAfrica Media independence EnvironmentFreedom of expression Fourteen months after the Burundian authorities suspended the BBC’s popular local broadcasts in the national language and four months after they rescinded its operating licence, the BBC has finally decided to cease operations in Burundi and close its Bujumbura bureau, several of its journalists reported yestertoday. Independent media under attack July 17, 2019 Media independence under threat in Burundi after BBC pull-out Burundi is ranked 159th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

It includes a presidential decree on 3 July appointing Eric Nshimirimana, the head if the ruling party’s youth wing, known as the Imbonerakure, as RTNB director-general. The Imbonerakure is regarded as a “militia” by the United Nations and, like the regime itself, is being investigated by the International Criminal Court on suspicion of crimes against humanity. It was used in the crackdown launched in 2015 in response to the political crisis triggered by President Pierre Nkurunziza’s decision to run for a third term. Crédit : BBC – Burundi’s BBC ban: Why has it happened? / Rupert Waring What with the BBC reporting yesterday that it is winding up operations in Burundi and the national radio and TV broadcaster RTNB now being run by a militia chief, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is extremely concerned about the fate of press freedom and pluralism in Burundi in the run-up to next year’s election.

Government-orchestrated threats against exile journalists

first_img Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists News News Organisation January 13, 2021 Find out more News Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge Reporters Without Borders deplores a government-orchestrated campaign of threats and smears against journalists and human rights activists that is being waged above all through media controlled by Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Limited (ANCL), a state-owned company better known as “Lake House.”The targets include Rohitha Bashana Abeywardane of Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka, a Reporters Without Borders partner organization, Dharmasiri Lankapeli of the Federation of Media Employees Trade Unions and Sunanda Deshapriya, a journalist and media freedom activist.“The UN Human Rights Council has just passed a resolution urging the government to prosecute those responsible for war crimes during the civil war between the armed forces and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which officially ended in 2009, but meanwhile many journalists in Sri Lanka and in exile are the targets of threats and an unprecedented hate campaign,” ReportersWithout Borders said.“Lake House, which controls many newspapers, is using accusations of terrorism, separatism and collaborating with the LTTE as a weapon to undermine those who defend freedom of information and media freedom.“We urge UN high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay, who says she is ready to go to Sri Lanka, to address the situation of all those who defend freedom of information and media freedom, both inside the country and abroad. Ending these threats must be included in the ‘global action plan’ which the Human Rights Council resolution wants the government to implement in order to advance national reconciliation.”Threats against freedom of information activistsAttacks against Sri Lankan journalists have increased in recent months. In one of the latest cases, Sunanda Deshapriya had to be extricated by police in Geneva on 19 March when demonstrators opposed to the proposed Human Rights Council resolution objected to his filming them and became aggressive.In a joint statement yesterday relayed by Reporters Without Borders, many journalists, human rights activists and media defence NGOs such as the Free Media Movement urged the government “to take immediate action to stop these attacks and ensure the safety of human rights defenders whether they engage in national level processes and/or in inter-governmental processes such as the UN Human Rights Council.”PropagandaDefenders of freedom of the media and information are being accused of terrorism by the smear campaign that the government-controlled media have been waging since the start of the year.Lawyers for Democracy condemned the state-run Independent Television Network’s propaganda in a statement on 21 March, accusing ITN of “branding journalists and civil society representatives as terrorists and traitors” for participating in the Human Rights Council session in Geneva.On 11 and 24 January, the ITN programme “Vimasuma” accused several journalists of collaborating with Tamil exile groups. At the same time, an article in the Lake House-owned newspaper Dinamina accused one of the organizers of the “Black January” media freedom campaign in Colombo of links with the LTTE. The organizer singled out was Dharmasiri Lankapeli of the Federation of Media Employees Trade Unions (FMETU).Dharmasiri LankapeliFollowing FMETU-organized protests on 4 and 6 July 2011 against the suppression of media trade unions within Lake House, leaflets were circulated by Lake House in July and November accusing Lankapeli of supporting the LTTE and participating in anti-government activities.The programme “Vimasuma” renewed its attacks on 1 February with a report about the “Black January” campaign that highlighted Lankapeli’s role and accused its participants of not recognizing LTTE atrocities.A representative of the Lake House journalists’ union, Lankapeli has for years been combating media freedom violations in Sri Lanka. He has been the target of threats and smears since 2007 and was forced to spend several months in hiding in 2009 and 2010.On 28 February, Reporters Without Borders published a timeline of cases of violence, threats and propaganda against journalists and media defenders during the first two months of the year that showed the lack of progress for freedom of information. Blocking of access to websites, especially those based abroad, has also increased since the end of 2011.Sri Lanka is ranked 163rd out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and is classified as a country “under surveillance” in the “Enemies of the Internet” report.

The stable of Bethlehem into which was born aprecious, mush loved, venerable and fragile child. A child firstwelcomed by poor shepherds who lived on the margins of Bethlehem andof society. They received from Joseph and Mary, a warm welcome intothe space of that tenderness and love, into that home of hospitality.We are invited to enter into that space this morning, and we areinvited to receive  from the Christ Child that same hope and peace,that the Shepherds first received on that night in the hills ofBethlehem. Jesus wants us this morning to know his presence in ourlives, his tender love, care and compassion.When we think of Shannon, we also think of the river Shannon, a namethat they both share. Rivers by their nature are naturally beautiful,magical, mystic, peaceful, tranquil and eternally flowing. These aretraits that we all yearn for in life, each one of us yearn for them.At times for whatever reason, very often it is only God alone thatknows why we somehow fail to realise these traits in our lives andtherefore are left without that Hope, Joy and Peace, which Jesusdesires for us in each one of our lives. It is for these qualities andtraits that I pray we all may experience in our lives and in ourcoming to terms with Shannons passing from this life to life eternalin Heaven.None of us wanted and none of us expected to find ourselves back inthis church today to be once again praying this Mass for a 15 year oldchild Shannon so soon after the death of 13 year old sister Erin. Itwas only a few weeks ago that Shannon read so well at the Months MindMass for her sister.We are numb and in such a state of shock and unrealness, totaldisbelief that for the second time within 2 months that Lorraine andthe Gallagher family are having to face the desperate pain and deepanguish of losing such a beautiful child in the most tragic ofcircumstances. This community are deeply sorry for your heartache andwe are at a loss. So many have asked the question over the last fewdays, how could such a tragedy happen again within 2 months. Thiscommunity has being praying for you and dearly wish this was nothappening for you again. They wish to support you and to reach out toyou and your family.I said at Erins funeral Mass, that no mother in this country shouldever have to experience the acute pain and suffering that you weregoing through in those days. That was also your wish Lorraine. But itis most regrettable that you find yourself once again and so soon inthis most tragic situation this morning. That must be so unbearablefor you and our hearts go out to you. I don’t not know of any wordsthat will help you.  Jesus desires as do all of uswish  to console youand give you peace and hope. It is Jesus words that i give you thismorning that Jesus has prepared a place in that same room for Shannonwith Erin in Heaven for all eternity. Shannon loved you and her desireat Erins wake was for you and her little brother to be ok. That iswhat she would want for you this morning.Shannon was a much loved girl. She was very precious to you her familyand friends. She had a particularly close bond to her sister Erin.They spent so much time together and were such close sisters. Shannonwould help Erin with so many things including homework. Erins deathnaturally caused her great sadness and pain.Shannon was a welled liked and highly thought of girl in thiscommunity. Her friends have spoke of her so affectionately and in suchglowing terms to me. These last few days have being difficult for you.In school, Shannon focused herself completely where she was achievingvery well. Recently she achieved an excellent result in her Irishexam. She was very much supported and cared for by her teachers.Shannon was an accomplished sportsperson.Shannon won several sportsawards at her school and she won the overall sports award in her firstyear at school.  She as an excellent Irish dancer also. It was thenonto football where she showed great ability on the field in bothsoccer and Gaelic, being a member of the county girls underage team.She gave up ruby because she thought it was too hard she  to take upwhat she considered the easier option of boxing. Boxing was a passionfor her and she won titles both county and ulster titles. She was adedicated person to her beloved Twin Towns boxing club and was veryinvolved and so enjoyed being part of the club.Shannon acquired such a huge circle of friends many of them throughsporting involvement and achievement. This is the Shannon that willfondly be remembered by so many of her friends and school mates whothought so much of her.Loss of a friend at any stage of life is very difficult but when oneis so young that loss is all the more difficult and sad. This hasbeing a trying time for you.The pain you are experiencing now will bedifferent for each one of you. You may ask questions could you havehelped her in a different way. The answer is simply No. You dideverything you could possibly do for Shannon. You comforted her in somany ways.While in life you all face many pressures today and sometimes you mayfeel that no one understands you or cares about you. If you feel thatyou have little hope of things improving for you, or that you havethought of or self harmed in any way or thought about suicide . Thenplease please TALK TO SOMEONE. I do not know of anyone who can readour minds: parents, teachers and friends may think they know what isgoing on, but they can’t really know unless you tell them. Talkingabout  something  will not make it happen. It will help for a problemshared is a problem halved.Do not bottle your feelings up. Talking about them will not increasethe hurt but a burden shared becomes lighter. In fact, this adviceapplies to everyone, no matter what age you are – share your feelingsand do not let them eat you alive. There are people who care andpeople who can help. Shannon’ s death is a great shock for you. As isaid before, you may feel overwhelmed by your feelings, which willpossibly be one or many. On the other hand, you may not have a strongreaction to what has happened. No two of us feel the same. It is okayto ask questions, such as, Why? Be patient with yourselves and allowyourselves to grieve. Don’t be afraid to talk about your feelings withparents, teachers, to your doctor, to the people in your clubs, tothose professionals helping out in your schools at this time, to me orone  your own priests. I am asking you as young people to continue tocare for one another, to be kind to one another, to be there for oneanother — support each other. Call the different organisations: HSEHelpline               , Now Doc, or Childline, Samaritans,, the gardaí, there are cards in the Church entrances forDonegal Links and the church notice boards have helpline Nos.I am saying to everyone here today that suicide is an unnecessarysolution to the problems and trials of life. These problems that weface are only temporary and they do ease and pass away with help andin time. Suicide takes place around one grief to add even furthergrief for family and friends and whole communities. Suicide is never asolution.To parents, teachers and those who work with young people in ourcommunity,  I know that you are available and will continue to beAVAILABLE TO TALK WITH AND LISTEN TO YOUR CHILDREN as you always are.Remember though that it is not always possible to know the deeplyhidden problems carried by some of our young people. You want what isbest for them and you do your very best for them. I also ask parentsto familiarise yourselves with and use the help that is available andthe services that are in our community.My re collection of 6 weeks ago when we were last gathered here atErins funeral was that I asked that this day should never dawn foranother mother in this country ever again.That day 6 weeks ago on the31st Oct, should have being a dawn for change in our country, a newbeginning, when agencies, support groups, professionals and thosecharged with the care of children should have realised that the courseand the path that they were on, in responding too and dealing withthese issues was neither effective or responsive enough to dealadequately enough with this ongoing problem throughout Irish society.But sadly Society which failed a 13 year old child Erin Gallager onthe 27th October 2012, within 2 moths has once again in the samefamily, for the second time failed her 15 year old sister ShannonGallagher. Society has failed two children, two sisters within 2months and that is a most  damning indictment for any societyevidenced by the second white coffin that is before this Altar within2 short months, 45 days ago to be exact.My heart is devastated, my heart is shattered at how poorly weunderstand the issues concerning youth mental health and mental healthissues in the general population in Ireland. And the terribleconsequences we see occurring and re occurring on a regular basisthough out the country.The systems and methodologies in place and used by the HSE and otheragencies and professionals dealing with these cases simply does notwork. We are failing to protect the most  fragile and most vulnerablechildren in our society.We are failing to to bring in the children, young people and mostvulnerable adults on the margins of our society to the safety of thecentre where they ought to find support, comfort, and safety.The systems and approach need to be radically improved, to becompletely overhauled and to be more responsive so that they have arelevance and are fit for purpose in the modern world.Hiding behind professionalism and qualifications or the inertia ofbeing able to change rules, legislation or regulations is simply notacceptable, when so many lives getting younger have being tragicallyand needlessly lost.I am now calling upon someone in Government to take a hands on roleand to do what it takes. Whatever that is to combat what is the themost serious problem affecting our country and so many of our familiesand communities with such devastating consequences.The time for talking is over. For the sake of all people on themargins or in similar circumstances, for the love of God let some oneperson in Government take leadership and reform what is clearly abroken system.Shannons family wish to thank the Twin Towns Boxing Club for theirtremendous support of Shannon. Lorriane is most greatfull to each andeveryone of you for the care and loving support you gave to Shannon. Iwant to also pay tribute to the club, to all sporting organisations,to all other groups and organisations, to the teachers and staff ofthe Finn Valley College, St. Columbas, St Marys and Dooish schools forthe excellent support and care that you give to all the children andyoung people of this community. You are a credit and inspiration. Youare the hope for our youth through involvement in various activitiesand events and furthering their education. I encourage you and laudyou to continue with the excellent work you do. Every hour you spendin helping children and young people is the most worthwhile work youwill ever do. Thank you. In a special way I want to thank the Boxingclub and the staff of the Finn Valley college the excellent care andsupport you showed to Shannon. I want to thanks all who cared for herin any way.The star over Bethlehem shone brightly showing that Jesus who came tobring us Peace, Hope and Joy is present to everyone of us. Shannon andErin are with Jesus in Heaven experiencing the fullness of that Joyand Peace. Jesus is taking care of them.Shannon and Erin would wish that Hope and Peace for all of you heretoday. They would tell you that life is precious and it is worthliving it. They would want you experience  Hope, Peace and Joy in yourown lives as you go about your daily lives. Maybe you should all taketime to get involved in some leisure activity, clubs or groups ororganisations, planet youth and so on. Shannon got great satisfactionout of sport. Sport, drama, music help us to have active and healthylives. Get involved with others in clubs and organisations to build uppositive friendships.Finally I ask you to give some space in your lives for Jesus in yourlives. Pray to him, talk to him as you would to me or anyone else.Listen to him in the stillness and quiet. God loves everyone of uswith an immense love. We are precious to him. He came among us as avulnerable and fragile baby born on the margins of Bethlehem to showus that he understands us in our fragility and brokenness, that hewants to reach out to us and help us overcome the troubles that weface in our lives. And yes we can overcome the things that trouble usand working together as a people, we will overcome these things. Atthis time of  Advent, I ask you to open to hearts to Jesus so that hemay dwell in them and flood them with his love ,joy, peace and hope.Fill your minds with noble and positive thoughts, use your voices tospeak words of love and peace, so that others may be filled with joyand Hope. Use your hands to reach out to others with the love of Jesusto make this world a better place. Unite your pain with Jesus to bringmany blessings into your own life and that of the world that we livein.

The club sponsors the Peanut Butter Recipe Contest and everyone and anyone who lives in Pike or a neighboring peanut producing county is eligible to enter.“We encourage everyone to enter the Peanut Butter Recipe Contest because most people like peanut butter and have a favorite way to eat it,” said Darthy Young, project chair. “There are three divisions – adult, youth and professional – and five contest categories – candy, cookies, cakes, pies and other.“Entries must include 16 to 20 cookies or pieces of candy, half a cake, a whole pie and five to six servings of other dishes.” Back during Hard Times, most folks were struggling to make ends meet but, around Brundidge, times weren’t quite so hard because the town had two of the earliest commercial peanut butter mills in the Southeast.

And, had it not been for work at the peanut butter mills and the daily supply of the sweet protein-rich foodstuff, life would have been much harder and the town might not have survived.So, each October, Brundidge plays host to the Peanut Butter Festival, a harvest and heritage celebration, that pays tribute to the town’s proud heritage in the peanut butter industry.last_img read more
