Whistle-to-whistle ban cuts minors’ exposure to gambling ads

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland Whistle-to-whistle ban cuts minors’ exposure to gambling ads The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has hailed the impact of the so-called whistle-to-whistle ban on gambling advertisements during televised sporting events in the UK, saying the measure has cut the number of ads seen by children by 97%.Introduced on 1 August 2019, the ban means gambling advertising cannot be shown on pre-watershed sports from five minutes before an event begins until five minutes after it finishes, with the exception of horse and greyhound racing.Research by media researchers Enders Analysis found that the number of gambling ads seen by four to 17-year-olds during the whistle-to-whistle period fell 97% since the ban was put in place.The overall number of gambling ads seen by children during live sports broadcasts also declined sharply, falling 70%.Enders Analysis also stated that there were 1.7bn fewer views of betting ads during the first five months of the ban, as well 109m fewer gambling ads viewed across four comparative weekends.Total gambling advertising exposure during live sport before 9pm was down by 78%, Enders Analysis said, while the study also found there was no apparent displacement of gambling ads to other evening sports programming, with the number of post-watershed adverts falling 28%.BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said the measure had effectively eliminated childrens’ exposure to gambling adverts, and exemplified BGC members’ commitment to offering gambling safely and sustainably. “The success of the whistle to whistle ban is a clear example of that commitment and I’m pleased at how effective it has been during its first year in operation,” Dugher said. “I am determined that the BGC will lead a race to the top in terms of industry standards and we want to drive more changes in the future.”This will see it introduce a code of conduct for sponsorship and advertising, to complement existing measures such as dedicating 20% of ad time to responsible gambling messaging; promoting deposit limts, and increasing funding for research, education and treatment.Dugher also took the opportunity to again urge the UK government to work with the BGC tackle black market operators, which he said have no interest in safer gambling or protecting customers, nor work to the same responsible standards as BGC members.He added that the planned review of the Gambling Act will also provide further opportunities to improve standards in the UK market.Meanwhile, the BGC has praised the Welsh government for giving casinos the go-ahead to reopen after a period of closure due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford said that the country’s four casinos, which employ around 300 people, can recommence operations from 29 August.The announcement comes after English casinos reopened on 15 August, while casinos in Scotland are set to open their doors again from 24 August.“The Welsh government has listened to the concerns of our members and responded to the tremendous efforts they have made to ensure they can re-open safely,” Dugher said.“It’s great news that casinos across Great Britain are now able to open their doors and make a vital contribution to the country’s economic recovery.” The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has praised the impact of the so-called whistle-to-whistle ban on gambling advertisements during televised sporting events in the UK, saying the measure has cut the number of ads seen by children by 97%. 21st August 2020 | By contenteditorcenter_img Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Legal & compliance Email Addresslast_img read more

It pays therefore to remain well invested in gold.Share markets might have been in recovery for the past couple of days but safe-haven asset gold has remained well bought, too. The yellow metal has sprinted back towards $1,650 per ounce this week, in fact, and could be set for a fresh challenge to the recent seven-year peaks around $50 higher.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…Some encouraging data on Covid-19 infection rates boosted stock investor appetite at the start of the week. This showed the rate of spread slow in some parts of the world like Europe. Signs that Chinese society is getting back to the cut and thrust of normal life boosted sentiment as well.Corona concernsDon’t think that we are over the hump, however. A record 828 UK citizens have lost their lives in the past 24 hours because of the coronavirus. And in the US, a daily high of 1,858 deaths has just been reported. Also today, the World Health Organisation’s regional director, Dr Hans Kluge, said that the progress Europe had made in battling the crisis was “extremely fragile.”He added that “we still have a long way to go in the marathon… to think we are coming close to an end point would be a dangerous thing to do.”It’s clear, then, that demand for flight-to-safety assets could continue to boil for many months. It’s a theme that has already lit a fire under bullion demand since the start of 2020, as fresh World Gold Council (WGC) data today shows.Gold gainsAccording to the body, global gold-backed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and similar products added a whopping 298 tonnes of the shiny stuff during the first quarter. This was the largest inflow of new material for any quarter since 2016.The value of these inflows amounted to $23bn, too, the highest quarterly figure ever.More than half of the material (an enormous 151 tonnes) added during the first quarter flowed in during March when the coronavirus panic hit fever pitch. Total holdings now stand at record peaks of 3,185 tonnes.Dividend darlingsDon’t just think of gold as a great play on current pandemic-related nervousness, though. Demand for the safe-haven asset and hard currency has in truth been flying for well over a year now, as WGC figures have repeatedly shown.Global gold-backed ETF assets have swelled 56% during the past 12 months, reflecting rising fear over the world economy, major political troubles like Brexit and US-Chinese trade wars, and increasing inflationary concerns as central banks have slashed benchmark rates.Some of the UK’s quoted bullion diggers have boomed in value on the back of this rampant investment interest. The FTSE 100‘s Polymetal, for one, is up 66% since this point in 2019. Meanwhile the FTSE 250’s Centamin has soared by almost half.The prospect of more share price strength isn’t the only reason to buy these shares today, though. At current prices both still boast mighty dividend yields of 5.4% and 4.6% respectively. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Friday Funnies – The Tony Buckley player toss

first_imgFriday May 7, 2010 Friday Funnies – The Tony Buckley player toss So as things go, the Biarritz vs Munster Heineken Cup Semi Final was quite an eventful match, as we’ve already seen a few great clips from it here this week. There’s still one more that I know a lot of you were really keen to see again.With about twenty minutes left in the match, Munster coach Tony McGahan brought power front rower Tony Buckley on as a replacement for John Hayes, in an effort to solidify the scrumming effort.It proved fruitless as Biarritz came out on top anyway, but what it did provide was a rather comical, and somewhat impressive, moment from the Irish powerhouse prop.In an attempt to give his scrumhalf clean ball to clear, he lifted Biarritz second centre Arnaud Mignardi and simply tossed him aside, with what looked like very little effort on his part.Mignardi is under 6ft and only weighs about 84 kg’s, with Buckley being a monster at over 130 kg’s and 6ft 5 in height, so in some ways it wasn’t really a fair contest. It was helluva funny to see the ease with which the big guy did it though.

RSF decries Zimbabwean government’s harassment of journalists

first_imgNews July 29, 2016 – Updated on August 1, 2016 RSF decries Zimbabwean government’s harassment of journalists Follow the news on Zimbabwe to go further Organisation RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the harassment of journalists in recent weeks by President Robert Mugabe’s government and the ruling ZANU-PF party. Journalists have been the targets of intimidation attempts, physical attacks and arrests without justification. News Receive email alerts ZimbabweAfrica Condemning abuses Predators Pastor Evan Mawarire is the figurehead of this new wave of opposition. After criticizing the regime’s flaws in a series of Internet posts, Mawarire was arrested on 12 July on a charge of trying to overthrow the government and was held for 48 hours until a Harare court dismissed the case.As a result of the growing grass-roots opposition, the authorities are clamping down on all those perceived as possible critics of the government and ZANU-PF – including journalists.“We condemn the violence against journalists,” RSF said. “Far from condemning these excesses, the president condones them because he identifies journalists with the opposition and does not recognize their public service function. After the latest case at his rally he said: ‘To journalists I say go and tell those who you are representing that (…) Mugabe is still here.’ “We call on the Zimbabwean judicial authorities to conduct an investigation into all this violence in order to end the impunity for abuses against journalists, abuses that clearly violate both the country’s constitution and its laws.”ZANU-PF members act with impunityThe latest victim was Daily News reporter Mugove Tafirenyika, who was badly beaten by young ZANU-PF members acting as security enforcers at a political meeting in Harare on 27 July. He had just taken a photo of an altercation between the youths and a politician who had himself taken a photo of the VIP tent where Mugabe was. When Tafirenyika refused to delete his photo on the grounds that he had official accreditation, the youths attacked him. The other journalists present then left the meeting in solidarity with Tafirenyika.Stones and clubs were used to attack Albert Masaka, a journalist with the daily NewsDay, when he attended a ZANU-PF meeting in Chitungwiza, a town a few kilometres outside Harare, on 18 June. The police intervened but failed to arrest his young attackers, who left with his equipment.Five journalists – Edgar Gweshe, Garikai Chauza, James Jemwa, Khumbulani Zamuchiya and Chris Mahove – were arrested on 26 June while covering one of the regular protests outside Harare’s luxurious Rainbow Towers Hotel. The protesters want to evict second Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko, who has been living there for nearly two years and has run up a tab of several hundred thousand dollars. When Agence France-Presse reporter Farai Mugano went to cover the protest on 14 July, he was arrested and was later released without charge.Censorship does not spare foreign journalists Alex Crawford, a visiting reporter for Britain’s Sky News, and her cameraman, Garwen McLuckie, were deported on 13 July although they had permission to come and do a report in Zimbabwe. They were arrested after interviewing Pastor Mawarire and were taken straight to the airport, where they were held for 12 hours without being allowed to talk to their lawyer. Their equipment was searched and some of their papers were photographed. Far from apologizing, information minister George Charamba told AFP: “They breached our laws, we kicked them out. You don’t enter a country without accreditation.”Mugabe is on RSF’s list of 40 “predators of press freedom”, while Zimbabwe is ranked 124th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. September 1, 2020 Find out more WILFRED KAJESE / AFP Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa ZimbabweAfrica Condemning abuses Predators The harassment is related to a wave of anti-government protests that began several months ago and were sparked by revelations about the vast sum (more than 700,000 euros) that the state lavished on Mugabe’s 92nd birthday celebrations despite a deep economic crisis.

TV network prosecuted under anti-terrorism law

first_img News PakistanAsia – Pacific PakistanAsia – Pacific to go further News News April 21, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Pakistan Receive email alerts Organisation center_img Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Private television network ARY News is facing a formal charge of violating the Anti-Terrorism Act by broadcasting images of insurgents in Balochistan province attacking the last residence of Pakistan’s founder, Muhammed Ali Jinnah.In formal terms, the charge is defined as a “First Information Report.” Since April, charges have been filed at least 12 times against news organizations in similar circumstances.“Legal harassment against media in Balochistan must cease immediately,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Though recourse to the legal system is an inalienable right, media organizations are fulfilling their mission of providing information when they cover the activities of insurgent groups in the region.”Coverage should not be confused with allegiance to the insurgents’ cause, the press freedom organization said. For that reason, invoking anti-terrorism law is unjust. “Pakistani authorities should recognize the threat faced by media who refuse to cover Balochi armed groups,” Reporters Without Borders said. “In effect, Balochi journalists are caught in the cross-fire between armed groups and the government. Pakistani authorities must guarantee journalists’ safety and their freedom to do their work.”For its part, the government has denied filing the FIR against ARY News. “The government believes in freedom of expression and respects the judicial system,” said the Chief Minister of Balochistan, Abdel Malik Baluch during a session of the Provincial Assembly of Balochistan. The filing of the charge was the result of a misunderstanding, he said.Nevertheless, the charge filed by Quetta police remains open.
