Spelinspektionen launches new Spelpaus awareness drive

first_img“That’s fine, but it could be even better. Anyone who loses control of their gambling, or for other reasons wants to avoid gambling, should know that there is a good tool offered by Spelinspektionen.” Sweden’s Gambling Inspectorate (Spelinspektionen) is to launch another awareness-raising campaign for the country’s self-exclusion scheme Spelpaus, following a major campaign run over the summer. Spelinspektionen launches new Spelpaus awareness drive 16th November 2020 | By Robin Harrison Responsible gambling While the initial campaign, comprising advertising on television, online and via social media, focused on players themselves, the next wave will specifically target women, relatives of problem gamblers, and residents for whom Swedish is not their native language.  The latest campaign, which will run until mid-January next year, will be run predominantly online, with banners to feature on a range of different websites, with 13 messages to be pushed out.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The government is taking more direct action to reduce gambling related harm, through new controls for online casino. This has seen mandatory session limits introduced, and bonuses capped at SEK100, as well as – perhaps most notably – an SEK5,000 deposit cap for players.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Spelinspektionen Spelpaus Email Address While these measures were originally set to expire at the end of the year, the government last week announced that it would look to keep them in place until June 2021. A consultation on the extension – which has been attacked by private operators – runs until 23 November. It is being run to ensure players are aware of the resources available to help keep their gambling under control amid the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The first campaign appears to have had a positive impact, with the number of customer self-excluding through the system rising from 52,000 in June, to 58,000 in November. Regions: Nordics Sweden Topics: Social responsibility Problem gambling Responsible gambling “According to a new survey, the proportion of players online who know of Spelpaus.se increased, from 54% last year to 71% this year,” Spelinspektionen communications manager Anders Sims explains. last_img read more

The British & Irish Lions

first_imgFriday Jul 3, 2009 The British & Irish Lions On Saturday we witnessed one of the greatest games ever to be played in Lions rugby history. It was an epic Test match that had drama from start to finish. The series is decided as a contest, but the British & Irish Lions live on, and still have plenty to prove as they must live up to those who fought before them.ADVERTISEMENTWe were hoping to post this brilliant video when the series was nicely poised at 1-1, adding to the excitement and build up towards the deciding Test at Ellis Park.Instead, we’re going to see if the Lions can redeem themselves by coming back and proving that they’re worthy of wearing the famous red jerseys, and can indeed beat the World Champions in their own backyard.The concept of the British & Irish Lions is steeped in history and tradition as legends of the game have represented four nations to join as one, and take on the the best from the south, every four years.The task itself is of epic proportions, but to be chosen as a Lion remains the ultimate honour for any player from England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales.This awesome video gives you a great feel for what the Lions is all about as we relive some of the greatest moments from past tours, as well as hear words from legends who’ve proudly been associated with the Lions.In terms of a tour result, going down 2-1 certainly looks better than 3-0. Will the Lions be able to pick themselves up for this dead rubber on Saturday, gaining further respect and admiration by doing so? There’s a few new faces on both sides, all of which have plenty to prove. We should be in for another classic encounter.ADVERTISEMENThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k7D9h1XqIYTime:06:06Springbok team:Zane Kirchner, Odwa Ndungane, Jaque Fourie, Wynand Olivier, Jongi Nokwe, Morne Steyn, Fourie du Preez, Ryan Kankowski, Juan Smith, Heinrich Brussow, Victor Matfield, Johann Muller, John Smit, Chilliboy Ralepelle, Tendai MtawariraADVERTISEMENTReplacements:Bismarck du Plessis, Gurthro Steenkamp, Deon Carstens, Steven Sykes, Pierre Spies, Ruan Pienaar, Francois SteynBritish & Irish Lions team:Rob Kearney, Ugo Monye, Tommy Bowe, Riki Flutey, Shane Williams, Stephen Jones, Mike Phillips, Jamie Heaslip, Martyn Williams, Joe Worsley, Paul O’Connell, Simon Shaw, Phil Vickery, Matthew Rees, Andrew SheridanReplacements:Ross Ford, John Hayes, Alun Wyn Jones, David Wallace, Tom Croft, Harry Ellis, James Hook Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Economic Strain on Farmers Becoming ‘Acute’

first_img SHARE Previous articleSenate Approves $484 Billion in Additional Coronavirus ReliefNext articleThe Economic Strain on Farmers and how Crude Oil’s Market Tumble Impacts Ag Markets on the HAT Wednesday Morning Edition Andy Eubank SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 21, 2020 Facebook Twitter Pandemic-a-huge-strain-on-farmersSo what is COVID-19’s impact on food and agriculture in the U.S.? It is a very disrupting force as Purdue ag economists Jayson Lusk, Michael Langemeier and Jim Mintert cover in their newest webinar, and the financial pressure on producers is enormous.The current shock to our economy is affecting all farmers, including livestock producers. Lusk, the department head for Agricultural Economics at Purdue University, says it’s very frustrating to those producers.“They see this margin increasing as prices consumers are paying goes up because there’s not as much meat on the market, but also prices farmers are facing are falling because there’s not as much demand at the packing level,” Lusk explains. “So, I think the problems for producers are pretty darn acute. We have a well-designed system to move those animals through the process, until it doesn’t work, and then it starts putting on an enormous strain on the system.”Mintert, from the Center for Commercial Agriculture says issues facing farmers include a possible record corn crop, soybean production exceeding 4 billion bushels, and plummeting gasoline, ethanol and meat demand. With the current recession extending worldwide, commodity exports come into question.“Corn that gets exported, soybean meal that gets exported, to some extent soybeans that get exported, are really all about providing more meat to consumers around the world,” he said. “As incomes weaken because of employment issues and related issues to that, it suggests a weak meat demand environment, not just in the U.S. but worldwide and that could be reflected in some softer export values for both corn and soybeans. And we’re looking at the possibility of a huge carryover from the 2020 crop into the 2021 marketing year.”Michael Langemeier says net farm income and working capital are both headed the wrong direction right now, painting a pretty bleak picture.“When net farm income is really low like it looks like it’s going to be in 2020, what do you typically do? Well, you look at your working capital and see if you have the working capital to make payments on debt and to purchase assets. Well working capital has been going down very sharply since 2014, so we’re just going to have more farms in the situation where they’re back is up against the wall, where their working capital is just very low, and a low net farm income, and they’re not going to have a lot of wiggle room to repay debt and certainly to buy assets.”Not a lot of good news coming from Purdue in this new webinar, but producers already have a good feel for that.

Authorities free Al-Jazeera’s Cairo bureau chief

first_imgNews EgyptMiddle East – North Africa EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Organisation 28.04.2006 Call for release of Al-Jazeera’s Cairo bureau chiefReporters Without Borders noted today that Al-Jazeera’s Cairo bureau chief, Hussein Abdel Ghani, was released late yesterday on bail after being arrested in the southern Sinai resort town of Dahab in the morning on a charge of broadcasting “false information likely to harm the country’s reputation.” Ghani told his Qatar-based satellite TV station he was freed on payment of 10,000 pounds (1,400 euros) in bail. He was arrested for reporting that police were attacked yesterday in the town of Al-Sharkiya, which turned out not to be true. Ghani pointed out after his release that the attack was also reported by Egyptian and other foreign news media.————————————————————————–Reporters Without Borders has called for the release of Al-Jazeera TV’s Cairo bureau chief, Hussein Abdel Ghani, who was arrested today for broadcasting “false information likely to harm the country’s reputation.” Detained in the resort town of Dahab, where he went to cover the Sinai bombings of the past few days, he was taken to Cairo for questioning by state security investigators.“We call for the withdrawal of all the charges against Ghani,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He made a mistake but he recognised it immediately and it does not justify his arrest. We also question the methods used by the police – denying him access to a lawyer, taking him away by force, and subjecting him to a long interrogation before locking him in a cell.”Arrested at Dahab’s Novotel hotel, Ghani was initially taken to the local police station before being transferred to the office of the state security prosecutor in Cairo, where he was questioned at length without being allowed to contact his lawyer, family or employers.Prior to his arrest, Ghani reported on Al-Jazeera today that there had been an attack against policemen in the town of Al-Sharkiya, east of Cairo. The information was mistaken, and Al-Jazeera issued a formal retraction a few hours later. Several other Arab TV stations also issued similar erroneous reports about an attack in Al-Sharkiya without being bothered by the security services.Contacted by Reporters Without Borders, the Egyptian press union condemned Ghani’s arrest as a “serious press freedom violation.”Ghani is currently being held in an individual cell in Al Nozha prison in Heliopolis, east of Cairo. He has been Al-Jazeera’s Cairo bureau chief ever since the Qatar-based TV network was created in 1996.

Diapause induces changes in the composition and biophysical properties of lipids in larvae of the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae)

first_imgThis study compares the composition and biophysical properties of lipids in non-diapausing and diapausing fifth instar larvae of Ostrinia nubilalis Hubn. (Lepidoptera: Crambidae). The majority of fat body lipids in both of these physiological states were comprised of ~ 90% triacylglycerols (TAGs), whereas the haemolymph contained a more even distribution of all lipid classes. The fatty acid composition and biophysical properties of the fat body lipids differed markedly between non-diapausing and diapausing larvae. Diapause was associated with a dramatic increase in the proportions of palmitoleic acid (16:1n-7) and oleic acid (18:1n-9), with concurrent reductions in palmitic acid (16:0) and linoleic acid (18:2n-6). The increase in the level of unsaturation of the fat body lipids, which caused a marked shift in their phase transitions to lower temperatures, was triggered by diapause rather than low temperatures. Adjustments of fatty acid compositions are likely to be an important component of winter diapause mechanisms, possibly maintaining the fluidity of cell membranes and the functionality of the organism during lower winter temperatures.last_img read more
