GambleAware calls for mandatory levy in Gambling Act review consultation

first_imgGambleAware reported that in the last twelve months, it received £15.6m in voluntary donations, a rise from £11m the previous year. In June 2020 the Betting and Gaming Council pledged £100m to GambleAware on behalf of 4 largest gambling operators in Britain: Bet365, GVC Holdings, Flutter Entertainment and William Hill. Topics: Legal Regulation Currently, British gambling law requires licensed British operators to donate a portion of funds to responsible gambling initiatives, but there is no minimum on how much should be donated. Legal Independent charity GambleAware has published its submission to the Department of Digital Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) Gambling Act review, specifying the need for a mandatory levy. GambleAware calls for mandatory levy in Gambling Act review consultation It comes in response to the UK government’s December 2020 review of the 2005 Gambling Act. As part of the review, the DCMS launched a call for new evidence to investigate issues such as spend limits and how gambling affects young adults. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Most prominently, GambleAware continued its advocacy for a mandatory levy to fund research, education and treatment (RET) related to gambling and gambling-related harm.

Tags: GambleAware Regions: UK & Ireland 12th April 2021 | By Marese O’Hagan In addition, GambleAware pointed to various pieces of research that may help inform the review in other areas. This included research that found just 5% of accounts represent more than 70% of British betting and gaming gross gambling yield. The submission outlines ongoing issues in the gambling sector found by GambleAware, with a particular focus on prevention of gambling harms and research to inform policy. “This unpredictable funding model represents a significant challenge given that a key function of GambleAware as a commissioning body is to provide assurance to funded services about recurrent income streams so that expert clinical teams can be established and sustained to provide treatment and support for those who need help.” Email Addresslast_img read more

The 5 April deadline is quickly approaching for UK share investors to max out this year’s ISA allowance. I’ve been on the lookout for some of the best stocks to buy before the cut-off date. And I’ve come across some top quality penny stocks I’ve since added to my watchlist.Penny stocks are companies whose shares cost less than £1 apiece. The downside is that their cheapness can make them prone to extreme price volatility. But this means a lot of UK share investors tend to stay away from them and, as a result, some truly-brilliant businesses are being overlooked.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…Here are four of those penny shares I’m thinking of adding to my Stocks and Shares ISA:#1: Legal eaglesDWF Group is a provider of legal and business services in Europe, The Americas and Asia. And it’s expanding aggressively to give revenues a serious shot in the arm. Indeed, net revenues leapt 15% in the six months to October, thanks to the contribution of its recently-acquired RCD division in Spain. Bear in mind though, there’s always the risk that acquisitions can fail to live up to expectations and that integration with the wider group can throw up other problems. DWF trades at 84p per share.#2: Home comfortsA bright outlook for the Irish homes market is encouraging me to invest in Cairn Homes today. Housebuilders like this usually suffer during periods of extreme economic uncertainty. But this penny stock is benefitting from a mixture of favourable lending conditions and significant government support which is driving demand for newbuild homes through the roof (so to speak). I think it’s a top buy despite the threat that interest rates might rise to curb inflation. This would impact affordability for many aspiring buyers that might hit demand for its homes. Cairn Homes trades at 90p per share.#3: Cleaning upI think McBride is a highly-attractive share for uncertain times like these. This UK penny stock manufactures household cleaning and laundry goods, the sort of products which remain in demand regardless of broader economic conditions. Revenues rose 2% in the six months to December, a result the company said reflected “continued strong demand for cleaning products due to the Covid-19 pandemic.” Meanwhile, pre-tax profit more than doubled year-on-year. I’d buy McBride despite the threat posed by increasing competition in the home products sector. It trades at 85p a share.#4: Green giantGetting in on the green revolution is also a great investment idea as lawmakers step up efforts to save the planet. And I believe buying shares in recycling specialist Renewi is an attractive way to do that. This penny stock — which trades at 47p per share — provides waste-to-product services across the UK and the Low Countries. Cash generation at Renewi has improved markedly recently, but be careful as debt levels remain high. The company will likely have a leverage ratio of around 2.5 times at the end of March.

RSF outraged by harassment of La Voix de Djibouti web editor

first_img July 17, 2020 Find out more Organisation La Voix de Djibouti is not run by “opposition illiterates,” RSF says News August 4, 2020 Find out more DjiboutiAfrica DjiboutiAfrica RSF_en Follow the news on Djibouti Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is outraged at the judicial harassment of Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh, the website editor of the independent radio station La Voix de Djibouti (LVD), the first independent radio station in Djibouti’s recent history. He could face imprisonment unless he pays an exorbitant fine of more than 11,000 US dollars.Okieh, who works as both journalist and technician for the news site, which was set up in 2010 by the Djibouti diaspora, was arrested on Monday this week by the police in the capital for failure to comply with a court order, and released two days later by the public prosecutor’s office.However, he must still pay 2,084,000 Djibouti francs, equivalent to 11,740 US dollars, in libel damages to Lieutenant-Colonel Elmi Daher Miguil in May 2013. If he fails to do so, he could be imprisoned again.Okieh was charged with “insulting a police officer” and “defaming the police” for posting photographs on Facebook showing police breaking up a peaceful demonstration. He has already served five months in jail, from 15 May to 19 October 2013, although he was originally sentenced to 45 days’ imprisonment. He described the conditions in which he was held as “inhuman”, saying he was tortured and refused medial attention. “The charges against Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh are without foundation and amount to nothing less than harassment on the part of the Djibouti authorities against a stalwart of the first free and critical radio station in Djibouti’s history,” said Virginie Dangles the deputy programme director of RSF.“Together with the diaspora, he is fighting to keep the public of Djibouti informed and publishes free and independent news and information which has been irritating Djibouti’s ruling dictatorship for a long time. We urge the authorities to end this harassment and scrap this ridiculous fine against a journalist who is just going about his work.” Okieh, listed by RSF as one of its 100 information heroes in 2014, has been arrested many times over, and has been ill-treated by the Djibouti authorities and wrongfully convicted. His last arbitrary arrest was in the March last year for covering a meeting in Balbala of the National Salvation Union (USN), an alliance of seven opposition parties, during which he again witnessed the violent dispersal of demonstrators by the police. He was accused of disturbing public order.In 2013, he spent a month in prison for inciting rebellion and inciting illegal demonstrations. Djibouti, whose government signed a framework agreement on political dialogue with the USN in December last year, is ranked 170th of 180 countries in the 2015 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.

Geochemistry of the 1100 Ma intrusive rocks from the Ahlmannryggen region, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

first_imgThe recognition of a Mesoproterozoic large igneous province (LIP) across large parts of southern Africa has been strengthened by recent geochronology, geochemistry and petrology. The c. 1100 Ma Umkondo province has been recognized across parts of Botswana, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique where tholeiitic sills, dykes and rare lava flows have been correlated into a single magmatic province emplaced in the interval 1108–1112 Ma. The extension of the province into the Dronning Maud Land region of Antarctica has been suggested by several workers, but detailed analyses of geochemistry and petrogenesis are lacking, as are comparative studies. This study investigates 25 dykes and sills of the Borgmassivet intrusions which include several of the major diorite sills of the province, up to 300 m in thickness. The dykes and sills are also considered to be c. 1100 Ma and they were emplaced, in part, synchronously with the Ritscherflya Supergroup sedimentary sequence. The Borgmassivet intrusions are characterized by geochemical signatures that suggest the magmas were either extensively contaminated by continental crust or derived from an enriched lithospheric mantle source, where the enrichment was related to earlier subduction. The limited geochemical range of the Borgmassivet and Umkondo intrusions are probably not consistent with significant levels of crustal contamination. Furthermore, the trace element ratios indicate a source in the sub-lithospheric mantle, followed by gabbroic fractionation and interaction with lithospheric wall rocks.last_img read more
