GC warns operators over in-game ‘feature buy-ins’

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland 17th January 2020 | By contenteditor The GB Gambling Commission has warned operators to ensure their products meet transparency and online safety standards, after discovering that operators were offering games that featured a ‘buy-in’ option for bonus features.This saw players able to pay money to access games’ bonus feature without playing the games’ normal rounds.Six operators were found to be offering the feature, with one charging more than £3,000 for immediate access to the bonus round.The regulator noted that its remote gambling and software technical standards require operators to provide an explanation of applicable rule stop customers, as well as prohibition them from active encouraging customers to chase their losses.Licensees must also refrain from encouraging players to chase their losses, increase their stakes or amounts they have chosen to gamble with.All six operators were contacted by the Commission over the use of the buy-in feature, and have since removed it from their sites.The warning comes after a week in which the regulator has moved to strengthen player safeguards by banning the use of credit cards to fund gambling, and made access to the GamStop self-exclusion system a mandatory requirement for all licensees.

3 reasons I’d STOP saving small amounts of money in 2020

first_img Paul Summers | Saturday, 18th January, 2020 Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 3 reasons I’d STOP saving small amounts of money in 2020 You might think it strange for me to be suggesting that saving small amounts of cash regularly in 2020 would be a bad idea. After all, the Fool UK philosophy has always been that it’s never wrong to put some money — any money — aside in an attempt to grow your wealth. Indeed, it’s something we vehemently encourage.Perhaps I should be more specific. In saying that saving money is a less-than-optimal strategy, I’m merely suggesting that using any kind of cash account for this purpose won’t do your finances much good. Here are three reasons why.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…1. Interest rates are staying lowThe level of interest offered by cash accounts has been historically low for a long time now. Thanks to ongoing jitters over the global economy, I can’t see this situation changing radically over the next few years, let alone in 2020. News last week that one of the largest banks in the UK, Santander, will reduce the interest it pays those holding its popular 123 current account (from 1.5% to 1%) speaks volumes.For me, this makes it even more of a priority than usual to pay down any high-interest debts before thinking about saving a single penny. This is particularly relevant in January as many of us will have splurged on credit cards over the festive season.Dealing with a financial hangover sooner rather than later is always the best solution.2. Inflation erodes valueAside from having a fund for life’s emergencies (such as replacing a broken boiler), I’d keep as little of my savings in cash as possible for another reason other than the fact that the interest paid can’t match that charged on any debt.Inflation — the rise in the cost of goods and services over time — isn’t known as the ‘silent wealth killer’ for nothing. True, it may have fallen to its lowest rate for more than three years in December (1.3%, according to the Office for National Statistics) but this is still higher than the interest offered by the vast majority of Cash ISAs or bog-standard current accounts. This means the value of any saved cash isn’t growing at all. In most cases, it’s actually losing its buying power.To make matters worse, the fact that current inflation is lower than the 2% targeted by the Bank of England could force another rate cut later this month, which would be more bad news for savers.3. Stocks pay youIt won’t come as a surprise that I believe the best place to put whatever wealth you have is the stock market, particularly if you have no plans to retire just yet. Research has consistently shown that equities provide the best returns over the long term. Cash, by contrast, is the worst-performing asset.Owning stocks in established, profitable companies should ensure your money grows above inflation, but another big attraction to investing is that many listed businesses pay out a proportion of their profits to their owners on a regular basis.Although simply buying the highest-yielding shares should be avoided (this is usually an indication that the dividend is likely to be cut), those investing in some of the UK’s biggest stocks can still pick up yields of between 4%-6%. Compare that to the paltry rates offered by cash accounts and the decision is a no-brainer, in my view. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Alan Oscroft Is this the best growth stock buy in the FTSE 100 right now? High-flying growth stocks often soar to greatness, but then something goes wrong and they crash back down. And then a recovery and a second growth spurt can frequently provide the best long-term buying opportunity of all. It usually happens with smaller companies pioneering new markets. But today I’m looking at FTSE 100 steel producer Evraz (LSE: EVR).By June 2019, the Evraz share price was flying. Investors were sitting on a seven-bagger in just five years. But it all went horribly wrong, and between that peak and March this year, Evraz crashed by 70%. That does include the 2020 pandemic crisis, but the shares were firmly on the way down before then.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 might see this as a warning against investing in volatile growth shares. But, investors who bought five years ago and held their nerve are actually doing very well. Had they been able to sell out at that 2019 high point they’d have pocketed even bigger profits, sure. But even in the depths of 2020, Evraz shares had still more than doubled over the previous five years — while the FTSE 100 was in negative territory.5-year performanceAnd since March, Evraz has put in one of the FTSE 100’s best recovery performances. The result? An overall five-year rise of 325%.Evraz is one of the world’s biggest producers of steel. But more than that, Evraz is part of the business from beginning to end. It is involved from mining iron ore and coal all the way to selling finished steel products. How can that not be a great business to be in for the long term?It is a cyclical business, and Evraz has had a couple of tough years. And 2020 is a year of pressure too, across the FTSE 100’s mining and commodities businesses. On Thursday, Evraz told us that crude steel output declined in the third quarter, down 4.4% quarter-on-quarter. That’s apparently because of a planned blast furnace shutdown and overhaul. But sales of total steel products fell too, by 9.5%. But on the upside, external sales of coking coal products and iron ore products rose quarter-on-quarter, by 23.6% and 9% respectively.Beating the FTSE 100The bulk of Evraz’s production is in Russia, which will undoubtedly put a lot of investors off. But the commodities market is global. And I can’t help thinking today’s low Evraz share price more than compensates for the risks. The shares have fallen 11% so far in 2020, compared to the FTSE 100’s 25% drop. But I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Evraz shares ending the year in profit.Forecasts put the shares on a price-to-earnings multiple of 10 for the current year, dropping to only around 7.5 for 2021. I see that as an attractive growth stock valuation. But there are dividends too, and the older I get, the more I like dividends. Forecast yields stand at approximately 8% this year and 8.5% next. I wouldn’t rely on dividends from the sector to be consistent, and I’d expect them to be cyclical too. But when I see yields like that from shares on such a low fundamental valuation, I reckon I’m looking at a bargain. I’d buy.last_img read more

Willie le Roux gets one week ban after another midair contest goes wrong

first_imgMonday Jun 27, 2016 Willie le Roux gets one week ban after another midair contest goes wrong Springbok fullback Willie le Roux pleaded guilty to breaching Law 10.4 (i) – tackling a player in the air – after he was cited following his yellow card during the South Africa vs Ireland third Test in Port Elizabeth. Here is another look at it, PLUS some other similar incidents.The Springboks hung on for a 19-13 victory, but early in the series decider Le Roux challenged for a high ball but came up short as he missed the ball and collided with Tiernan O’Halloran.O’Halloran got up extremely high so the contact caused him to flip and land dangerously upside down, thankfully and luckily not causing any serious injury.Glen Jackson referred to his TMO and they concluded that Le Roux was not in a position to catch the ball, and O’Halloran landed on his upper back/shoulders, so yellow card.Irish fans were fuming with just the yellow, as they felt this deserved a red card.The Springbok fullback was later cited by James Absaloms of Kenya, before judicial officer Terry Willis (Australia) heard the case in PE on Sunday. He found that the relevant entry point for the offence was at the lower end and felt that a one week suspension was appropriate.As the Test series has now concluded, Le Roux will miss the Super Rugby match between his team, the Sharks, and the Lions on this coming Saturday, 2 July.THE LAWLaw 10.4 (i), for which Le Roux was charged states the following: Tackling the jumper in the air. A player must not tackle nor tap, push or pull the foot or feet of an opponent jumping for the ball in a lineout or in open play.OPINION This is an area that World Rugby needs to thoroughly address as both players and fans, and often referees, seem to be unclear on exactly what the outcome should be in any given situation. The contrasting opinions on Saturday, and indeed in recent weeks, have been quite incredible to see.In this case both players were contesting for the ball – leaving the ground with near identicial timing – and one could say that they were both equally at risk of injury.There was one clear winner though, and unfortunately he landed horribly. Luckily for both parties he didn’t land directly on his head, which is what helped Le Roux on the day.Perhaps the main takeaway from this particular incident is that if you’re going to challenge for a high ball, make sure you get it, otherwise there is a good chance that you will be either red carded or suspended if you make any contact at all with the opposition. Scroll to the very bottom for a full video, but below we’ve looked at some similar incidents, giving you a chance to peruse and compare the on-field and disciplinary hearing sanctions.SIMILAR MID-AIR INCIDENTS (may take some time to load)CJ Stander vs Patrick LambieFans and media immediately drew comparisons to the controversial Stander red card from the first Test, when he was sent off for knocking out Pat Lambie as part of an attempted charge down. DISCIPLINARY: Red card and one week banJason Emery vs Willie le RouxLe Roux was actually on the receiving end of a very dangerous challenge himself earlier this year when he landed horrifically after Jason Emery flew into him. DISCIPLINARY: Red card and four week suspensionJared Payne vs Alex GoodeTwo years ago Ireland fullback Jared Payne was shown a straight red card just four minutes into a Heineken Cup Quarter Final, after he collided with Alex Goode. His eyes were firmly on the ball but referee Jerome Garces was firm in his decision.DISCIPLINARY: Red card and two week banWaisake Naholo vs Liam WilliamsWe also recently saw plenty of discussion surrounding the Waisake Naholo and Liam Williams midair collision, where many Welsh fans felt that Naholo should have been at least yellow carded. DISCIPLINARY: Penalty, no card or banLeolin Zas vs Bernard FoleyIn May this year Leolin Zas was also shown a straight red card when he slipped just before competing for a high ball, causing Waratahs number ten Bernard Foley to land awfully. DISCIPLINARY: Red card and two week banAnthony Watson vs Alex GoodeAnthony Watson was the subject of controversy in another high ball incident with Alex Goode, after he was sent off after clumsily clashing into the Saracens fullback in April.DISCIPLINARY: Red card and two match ban (also to do with verbal abuse)There are one or two more in the Related Posts too, so have a look and let us know your thoughtsFull video of the Le Roux/O’Halloran incident (with South African commentary)credit: supersportADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play , Ireland , See it to Believe it , Springboks Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Located in Juriquilla, north of the city of Querétaro, Casa Rivera is part of one of the private neighbourhoods developed in this area. The complex has specific regulations for the design of its houses. Shapes, materials, heights and languages are aspects that were present and worked on comprehensively throughout the process.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe project was created as a house for rent at the initial request of the client, who became personally more involved with the development of the project and thus decided to keep the property to inhabit it with their family. This allowed us a much more sensitive approach with the client, being able to delve into every detail and space according to their perceptions and needs.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Top FloorSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe main idea is to generate routes that allow an appropriation of space, in which one discovers visual touches while travelling through space. From this idea, a set of volumes were born that provide individuality and privacy in each space and in turn rest on a foundation rooted in the ground, which seeks to provide a feeling of protection that reflects the current conception of family life.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe search to separate the spaces in order to give better privacy to each member of the family reinforced two concepts that we constantly seek in our projects, light, and silence. These concepts helped us develop a good ratio between the volumes and the voids of the house, expressing them by using courtyards, balconies, and terraces that optimize air circulation, acoustics, and the entry of natural light into the house.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe materiality of the project was highly studied, since, in addition to being something important for the regulations of the neighbourhood, it also had to clearly reflect our constructive position, in which we always seek to implement organic techniques and traditional methods from each region, to reinforce the atmosphere of the spaces. This is how we decided to use whitewashed walls and earth-based stuccos, fulfilling two of our priorities: naturally sealing the walls, allowing them to breathe through lime and leaving an artisanal imprint of the worker’s hand, reminding us of the walls of the old estates in the region. The use of wood corresponds to the feeling of warmth to soften the harshness of the site, giving us an acoustic shelter that reduces reverberation as a result of the search for silence in the house.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe vegetation is a very important part of this project, seeking to frame the visual finishes by generating a constant rhythm of vegetation in all the spaces of the house. This rhythm is made up of silences that are expressed through green moments that accompany the inhabitant throughout their journey.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe lines of the house are perceived as a result of all these concepts. A set of volumes of lime, which in their sloping clay roofs, maintain a constant dialogue with their surroundings and rest on a stucco base. A house that without neglecting the site, the customs, and its surroundings maintains the search for a contemporary response.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueProject gallerySee allShow lessCopper Spirit Distillery / RSAAWSelected Projects6House / Zooco EstudioSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942021/rivera-house-taller-de-arquitectura-miguel-montor Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more
