Spelinspektionen launches awareness raising campaign

first_img Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has launched a nationwide campaign intended to increase awareness of the regulations on gambling in the country. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Swedish Gaming Authority (Spelinspektionen) has launched a nationwide campaign intended to increase awareness of the regulations on gambling in the country.The campaign will last two weeks, starting in late December and ending in early January, with ads to feature outdoors, on locations such as billboards, in print media and on digital channels.The budget for the campaign is SEK2.5m (£199,700/€238,900/$265,900), which Spelinspektionen described as, “relatively little compared to the gaming companies’ advertising investment”.Anders Sims, communications manager for Spelinpektionen, said it was important to let the public know what the authority does and why.“By telling us that Spelinpektionen is there, what we do and above all why, we hope to make the market safer for everyone who plays,” Sims explained.Spelinspektionen has already taken action against a number of operators for a range of offences this year. In June, it even revoked Global Gaming’s operating licence over “serious deficiencies” in its business practices, including failings related to responsible gambling and anti-money laundering measures.Earlier this week (10 December) Spelinspektionen revealed that despite issuing sanctions to licensees on 21 occasions in 2019, Åland Islands-based Paf is the only operator to have paid the penalty.Spelinspektionen’s crackdowns against the industry have prompted operator association Branschföreningen för Onlinespel (BOS) to accuse the regulator of a lack of clarity around gambling regulations in July.Spelinspektionen, however, has argued that operators are simply “unaccustomed” to its enforcement approach.Sims said one reason for the campaign was to encourage possible customers to play with licensed gambling operators rather than their unlicensed counterparts. In September, BOS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt and Robin Olenius, communication manager for Betsson Group Sweden said they felt the issue of channelisation had been insufficiently addressed by Spelinspektionen at a meeting between operators and the regulator.“The licence is a security stamp,” Sims said. “It is Spelinpektionen that issues the licences and is responsible for calling the companies that are licensed to ensure that they live up to the Swedish regulations. We want those who play to know what applies, so that they can choose companies with a Swedish license.” Legal & compliance Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Spelinspektionen launches awareness raising campaign Tags: Online Gambling 13th December 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Email Addresslast_img read more

I’d follow Warren Buffett’s stock tips to get rich and retire early

first_img Image source: The Motley Fool Kevin Godbold | Sunday, 8th November, 2020 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The recent weakness in the stock market is a good opportunity to follow Warren Buffett’s advice about when and how to buy shares.He’s perhaps the most successful general stock market investor the world has ever known, and he’s worth billions. I discovered a lot about his life and his methods from several sources of information.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…Where I’ve found Warren Buffett’s advicePerhaps the most important is the library of shareholder letters he makes available online for everyone. His annual letters to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway have become eagerly awaited by investors. Berkshire Hathaway is the conglomerate company he controls. And he didn’t make all his investments over the years in the shares of publicly listed stocks. He often buys companies outright and adds them to the conglomerate.The letters chronicle many of the twists and turns of his investment career. And examples and advice pepper each one, helping me to invest better. I think the letters are a great resource that many investors would enjoy using and benefit from.I also read his authorised biography written by Alice Schroeder – The Snowball. And a book called Tap Dancing To Work, which Carol J Loomis put together. It is a collection of articles written about Buffett in Fortune, the American business magazine. Both books gave me valuable insights into his investing methodology.Buffett’s known for buying the shares of companies with strong businesses when the shares are cheap. He then holds on to his stocks for a long time, allowing progress in the underlying business to drive a good return on his investment. But that’s not his only method of investing. Indeed, great companies at sensible prices don’t come along every day. So, Buffett also makes a lot of shorter-term investments, and people don’t often write about those.A toolkit for investingBut one book does a good job of lifting the lid off Warren Buffett’s toolkit of investment strategies. It’s called Buffettology, and his daughter-in-law Mary Buffett wrote it along with David Clark. Within its pages, I discovered a lot of detail about what Buffett typically looks for when identifying the quality of an enterprise.I think those four sources of information make an excellent basis for learning to invest like Warren Buffett. And one of the main features of his style is to approach every investment from a business perspective. In other words, with shares, he acts with the same focus and tenacity to research and ownership as if he controlled the entire business.Buffett looks for excellent businesses at a price that makes sense of an investment. And I reckon following a business perspective like that can help me get rich and retire early. Indeed for me, aiming to invest like Warren Buffett is a good idea.

Five things to do when there’s no World Cup rugby on television

first_imgSo treat yourself or a loved one to a yearly subscription for less than £30 by clicking on this link.What do you do to overcome the now sudden lack of rugby? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter. There are not many of them during this Rugby World Cup, but when there are days without rugby it leaves us a little lost for ways to entertain ourselves Webb Ellis trophy TAGS: Highlight Looking at the fixture list ahead of the Rugby World Cup a few days stood out – the ones where there was no rugby on.When the first round of matches was over a certain fear set in – what will I do with myself now there’s not rugby on television every minute of the day?Other than going to work – which, admittedly, is at a rugby website – I had to quickly readjust to not settling down and watching hours and hours of World Cup action, and only days after it graced our screens for the first time.Rugby is back on Wednesday, but here at Rugby World we like to help you guys out when it comes to dealing with withdrawal symptoms, so here are five things you can do to get through the empty days.Catch up on the highlightsWhat better way to deal with the lack of rugby than to watch some rugby videos? The opening weekend spoiled us with some amazing action, from England and Fiji kicking it all off to Japan upsetting South African and Georgia beating Tonga.The video above is a compilation of the best tries, including an end-to-end effort from the USA’s Chris Wyles and of course the game-winning effort from Japan’s Karne Hesketh.The good people at World Rugby have uploaded all the highlights from the games so far, so if you missed any of the action then it couldn’t be easier to catch up.Learn how to pronounce players’ namesGeorgia’s number 8 and captain Mamuka Gorgodze stands beside a scrum against TongaIf you’re going to partake in watercooler chats about the Rugby World Cup in the next six weeks it’s pretty important that you can pronounce a few of the key names in the tournament.Georgia captain Mamuka Gorgodze (Mah-moo-kah Gor-got-zay) was one of the standout performers of the weekend, but even the editor of Rugby World has trouble saying his name. Commentator and former Wales great Jonathan Davies always had trouble with former France international Imanol Harinordoquay‘s name, but thankfully for us he’s not in this year’s tournament.Other tricky names to be careful of are Noa Nakaitaci (No-ah Nah-kah-tah-si) and Mike Brown (Mike Brown). It’s a dangerous world out there, don’t get caught out.Download the Rugby World podcastFresh out the edit suite on Monday, the Rugby World podcast recaps on the weekend’s games and looks ahead to the next round of matches. The team discuss the weekend’s shocks and the flurry of injuries that beset the likes of Wales in their first game.Speculate wildly about who will be picked for the next matchesNew Zealand captain Richie McCawWill Sam Burgess start for England? Will Richie McCaw be rested by the All Blacks for their game against Namibia? Will Warren Gatland have 15 fit players to choose from?All questions that we’re speculating about at the moment, so why not get in on the action and make some educated guesses about who your team will send on to the field in their next matches.Take out a Rugby World subscriptionIt’s not just during the Rugby World Cup that we come to life – Rugby World brings you the biggest interviews and best analysis every month of the year.

U.S. ‘democracy’ for $ale: Hong Kong protesters in NYC unmasked

first_img‘Rally in a box’ being unpacked, Oct. 13, New York City.I watched as a prefab “rally in a box” about Hong Kong opened up here on Oct. 13. I don’t know if this rally was funded directly by the notorious U.S. National Endowment for Democracy, a congressionally funded agency that plays the same role as the CIA did in an earlier period. But it featured Sharon Hom of the Human Rights in China organization. Hom actually announces on the group’s website that funding for its projects comes from NED, as well as Soros’s Open Society and Human Rights Watch. Hom is a law professor at New York University.Alan Weinstein, founder of  NED, explained in a 1991 Washington Post interview: “A lot of what we do today was done covertly by the CIA 25 years ago. We are the sugar daddy of overt operations.” Recently web commentators have exposed NED’s sinister role in funding the protests, violent riots, fire bombings and assaults in Hong Kong. So we can certainly ask what might be NED’s role at a Free Hong Kong rally in New York City. Funders with deep pockets were definitely needed to provide all the theatrical props, gear and anti-China propaganda I saw that morning.The best ‘democracy’ money can buyThe Oct. 13  rally, which drew a couple hundred students, was announced on Facebook sites NY4HK and DC4HK. The location was “The Cube” on Astor Place, near New York University and Cooper Union.The rally was scheduled to support anti-China bills due for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 15. The bills, HR3289 and HR4270, were designed to set up sanctions on China, using Hong Kong as a lever.I arrived an hour early to observe the set-up, and what I saw confirmed my suspicions. I watched as 15 to 20 matching boxes were delivered early. It looked like a rollout for a movie set! In them were stacks of glossy yellow postcards promoting “freedom, human rights and democracy in Hong Kong” and urging support for a “yes” vote on the bills. As I saw the sophisticated equipment rolling in, I thought how, in my 50 years of participating in and organizing many different kinds of protests in New York City and in the U.S. — from anti-racist, anti-war, community-based small events to major coalition efforts of hundreds of progressive groups cooperating together — I had never seen a political event unfold like this action.The advance team opened box after box, pulling out crisp new signs and flags, along with black facemasks, everything still plastic-wrapped. There were new gas masks, yellow umbrellas, yellow helmets and yellow security vests. There were boxes of folded, new, black T-shirts with white silk-screened slogans. There was a cornucopia of pricey material. A small prefab stage was quickly snapped together. Delivery people showed up with musical instruments, including wind, string and percussion, as well as folding chairs and music stands. A sleek generator powered a high-tech sound system that played the new “protest anthem” — “Glory to Hong Kong” — in repeat mode.As people began to arrive, they were given facemasks, T-shirts and chant sheets to become “instant activists.” Out of plastic wrap came U.S. flags for them to hold and wave on telescoping metal flagpoles and “official volunteer” badges to hang around their necksI sat and took pictures, trying to be inconspicuous. I admit I felt jealous of this incredible street equipment. The gear looked so high-tech and glossy! And delivered on site!I thought of how I and other progressive activists spend hours designing signs, then copying and stapling them, first onto placard board and then onto cardboard tubes. I thought of the mismatched sound equipment we rig together, how we transport our gear in shopping carts on subways, hauling it up and down steps, or in dented rental vans or trucks. And I looked at the telescoping metal flagpoles. Metal poles are explicitly prohibited in New York protests. There is also a well-known ban on facemasks. Migrant-rights activists, Antifa and Occupy forces have often been arrested for even having a bandana on their face. At least one-third of these Hong Kong protesters were wearing full black fabric facemasks, as if they faced tear gas or any repression in this city, especially from police who conveniently and untypically were not present I asked a few young people where they were from. They identified themselves as from Hong Kong and studying at New York University. Students at NYU and many universities have their own separate student and alumni organizations and clubs. Although Hong Kong is officially part of China, these clubs reinforce a separatist ideology. Police repression and Chinese studentsIn September, one of the Facebook groups announcing the Oct. 13 rally, NY4HK, had attempted a “pro-Hong Kong” rally in Manhattan’s Chinatown. The group was chased out by pro-China community residents.But pressure from the U.S. federal level now makes a pro-China show of support by Chinese students far more difficult. No police were visibly present at the Oct. 13 “pro-Hong Kong” rally, but other branches of the police state are hard at work promoting an anti-China message by attempting to intimidate thousands of students from China.According to a June 28 NPR report, FBI agents are now busy visiting many of the 360,000 Chinese students in the U.S., reminding them that they are being monitored and should stay out of politics. Universities are being pressured to monitor students, graduate students and visiting research professors of Chinese nationality. This March, U.S. intelligence officials briefed about 70 college administrators in the American Council on Education, according to university participants. The officials said the presidents should increase oversight of Chinese researchers and avoid research funding from Chinese firms like Huawei.The presidents were “skeptical of many of the claims, but many of them receive U.S. government research money.” (tinyurl.com/yytfm2s4) U.S. intelligence agencies are encouraging U.S. research universities to develop actual protocols for monitoring students and visiting scholars from Chinese state-affiliated research institutions. This clear double standard confirms that students from China are being monitored and surveilled, while students from Hong Kong are being funded and promoted.‘Performance art’ protestThe Oct. 13 rally and its staging were followed by another “pro-Hong Kong” rally on Oct. 18 at the Brooklyn Nets basketball game. Thousands of dollars must have been spent to secure nine rows with more than 100 seats in the prime Section 1 area in the Barclay Center. The people in those seats were wearing matching “Stand with Hong Kong” T-shirts and facemasks. There were also front-row seats reserved for those wearing “Free Tibet” shirts.This was a direct challenge to Joe Tsai, the Chinese owner of the Nets — and also a challenge aimed directly at Chinese sovereignty.All these events reaffirm a separatist agenda — by including prominent “Free Tibet” and “Independence for Taiwan” signs, as well as “Stand with Hong Kong.”These costly “performance art” actions are actually promoting U.S. interference in Chinese sovereignty, as well as far-reaching sanctions on China.New sanctionsThe Oct. 13 pop-up rally promoted Congressional bills: HR3289, the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019, and HR4270, the Protect Hong Kong Act. These are sanctions legislation that subject Hong Kong’s special U.S. trading status to annual reviews and authorize sanctions on Hong Kong based on certain charges. For instance, the annual Congressional review would include “human rights charges” against China as well as trade, customs and claims about any shipments from China to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Iran or any U.S.-sanctioned country.The review, aimed at China, would determine whether Hong Kong was sufficiently “autonomous” from Beijing to justify its special trading status under U.S. law.The bills were swiftly passed by the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 15 by an undisputed voice vote, with forceful assistance from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The legislation is now on a fast track to the U.S. Senate.Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang warned U.S. lawmakers to stop meddling in China’s internal affairs. Geng said the House action “fully exposes the shocking hypocrisy of some in the U.S. on human rights and democracy, and their malicious intention to undermine Hong Kong’s prosperity and stability [in order] to contain China’s development.” (scmp.com, Oct. 16) The Oct. 13 pop-up rally in New York, along with other costly staged events, are examples of U.S. so-called democracy at its finest. Just pour on $$!All these measures — including the congressional legislation — are designed to undermine China’s continuing efforts to advance on the road to socialism.Now is the time for social justice and antiwar activists to speak up and demand: Hands off China! End all sanctions!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
