Income Access’ Erica Anderson discussed the path forward with three experienced stakeholders.“What is BGC doing?” Those words welcome visitors to the website homepage of the recently launched Betting and Gaming Council. For a comprehensive answer to the question, the site highlights the association’s dedication to responsible advertising as well as an uncompromising stance with regards to age verification requirements and self-exclusion programmes.The arrival of the BGC comes at a time when concerns and commitments regarding safer gambling practices have reached fever pitch, the subject matter more omnipresent than ever. It’s within that context that we spoke to three experienced industry stakeholders, each approaching the discussion from a different vantage point but unified in their belief that safer gambling practices are as essential as they are inevitable. Standards for safetyMathew Symmonds, director and founder at Web Analysis Solutions, explains that an association like the BGC is important not just for its mandate but also for the way in which it has been structured.“As an affiliate, it will help us to operate more effectively in regulated markets and will also mean that, given that the BGC has been founded by operators, it will be directed by those who understand the industry and how affiliates work,” says Symmonds. “Having strong industry associations like this means that conversations take place before policies, rules and regulations are enforced, leading to decisions that are practical and achievable.”The BGC launch arrived in tandem with a list of five core safer gambling commitments, the development of which was facilitated by The Senet Group, an independent body created to promote responsible gambling standards. A major focus of the commitments is education, evidenced by the allocation of £10m in funding for a national education programme that is “designed and delivered by relevant experts for children and young people over the next four years”.Launched in 2014, The Senet Group was founded on a collaborative effort between several leading operators. The safer gambling commitments were similarly strengthened by support from operators like Aspers, Bet365, Caesars, Flutter Entertainment, Genting, GVC, Playtech, Rank Group, Sky Betting & Gaming and William Hill.Kindred Group head of affiliates Ryan Henderson is encouraged by the role that operator-led groups could have on the conversation surrounding safer gambling practices. “I would hope that the BGC seize the opportunity to present the other side of the social responsibility (SR)/responsible gambling (RG) argument in the press and with regulators,” he says. “I would expect to see similar bodies set up elsewhere. We already have a similar body operating in Sweden, trying to help the government there manage their recent regulation.”Ian Sims, founder at Rightlander, which specialises in software that monitors and identifies misleading advertising, brings a similar sense of anticipation with regards to the UK and to what extent other regions will follow in its footsteps. Moreover, he specifically looks forward to seeing how affiliate marketers respond to the push for increased compliance standards.“The number of markets which are at an early stage of regulation will present new challenges as they learn the ropes and decide on strategy. Some may follow the UK lead while others may be more haphazard,” says Sims. “For affiliates to engage with compliance, it is imperative that they understand what they have to do. This may result in more culling [by operators] of affiliates that are either unable or unwilling to invest the time in research. Operators may need to assist them or consider reducing the size of their affiliate base until that knowledge is widespread.”Corporate social responsibility In September, two months before the launch of the BGC was announced, the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) held its first-ever marketing co-creation workshop. The workshop provided an opportunity for marketing professionals from a range of gambling businesses to discuss topics such as ‘brand, marketing and the safer gambling approach’. One challenge identified by the attending delegates was the question as to whether safer gambling is part of a permanent brand identity or a short-term campaign.Considering this question from the affiliate perspective, Symmonds says that operating a compliant business in an industry subject to ever-evolving regulation is essential to ensuring long-term viability. “We wholly believe in safer gambling in that our revenue is more sustainable when it is made from players who are only risking what they can afford to lose,” he says. “If we referred unsafe gamblers, then we would not only be irresponsible and potentially attract regulatory implications, but we would also see potentially shorter player lifetimes and the need to adapt the way we do business to attract more transient players.”Henderson, who is equally resolute in the need for stronger action, emphasises the need for promoting efforts made by industry stakeholders to buttress the movement towards safer gambling practices.“It is critically important that we, as an industry, manage the conversation around SR and RG so that we highlight the important work that we as an industry are doing,” says Henderson. “Examples include [Kindred Group] efforts with Derby County football club in the UK around mental health and similar work with horse racing. We also lead by way of the RG messaging in our advertising, which encompasses affiliate marketing and other digital channels, across many of the markets that we operate in.”As more weight and resources are invested in educating the public about safer gambling and the industry’s proactive role in those efforts, there also remains a need for operators and affiliates to work together to support their own continued education.As Sims point out, in an evolving regulatory landscape, it’s important to ensure that respective parties know what is expected from them and what they should expect from each other. “Education is key,” he says. “It probably has to filter down from operators and game developers or maybe affiliates should need to demonstrate they have an understanding to operators before being accepted.”Based on this ongoing conversation, that demonstration of understanding and responsiveness will play a crucial role in the expansion, evolution and perception of the igaming industry for years to come.Erica Anderson is marketing director for Paysafe’s Income Access.

IG Group appoints Rozes as new financial chief

Posted on August 24, 2021Categories gkdecinrTags , , , ,   Leave a comment on IG Group appoints Rozes as new financial chief

first_img Spread betting and contracts for difference (CFD) provider IG Group has named Charlie Rozes as its new chief financial officer.Rozes will join IG Group on 1 June and replace Paul Mainwaring, who in January announced his intention to retire. Mainwaring had agreed to remain in his position until the operator appointed a replacement.Rozes was most recently group finance director at multinational insurance corporation Jardine Lloyd Thompson from September 2015 until April 2019, when it was acquired by professional services firm Marsh & McLennan Companies. Since the acquisition, Rozes has played a key role in the integration programme to merge the two companies.Prior to this, he spent time as chief financial officer of Barclays UK retail and business bank and global head of investor relations for Barclays plc, and also held a number of senior executive roles at IBM and Bank of America.“I am very excited to be joining IG at this important time in its history and look forward to working with [chief executive] June Felix and the executive team in their objective of executing the delivery of the company’s global growth strategy,” Rozes said.IG Group chief executive June Felix added: “I am thrilled that Charlie is joining the executive team of IG. He brings extensive international experience of leading and working with UK and overseas operations and has successfully driven a number of substantial growth programmes throughout his career.“Charlie’s UK plc and executive director experience will further support IG as it continues to grow its sustainable and diversified global business and in achieving its strategic growth ambitions.”Felix also paid tribute to the outgoing Mainwaring. She said: “I would also like to thank Paul for his tremendous contribution to the company and look forward to continuing to work with him over the next few months as we orchestrate an orderly transition of his responsibilities to Charlie.”The appointment comes after IG Group last month revealed that it had benefitted from “exceptionally high levels” of financial market volatility caused by novel coronavirus (Covid-19), which resulted in significant revenue growth in Q4 to date.Revenue for the first 36 trading days of its fourth quarter, which ends 31 May, was estimated to be around £173.0m (€196.8m/$215.2m). This marked a 23.7% increase on revenue of £139.8m for the full third quarter, to 29 February, and more than half the £249.9m generated in the six months to 30 November 2019.

Rest in peace and rise in glory, dear sister. Ian Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit an Event Listing July 24, 2017 at 1:06 pm Stefani’s ministry was indeed expansive! Although I never had the honor of meeting her in person she reached out to me and many others through her digital presence. She always sought the uplift of Christ’s body the church and the utilization of all the gifts of all its members for ministry. She will be remembered with gratitude by many across the country.

Schatz grew up in Santa Barbara, California, and it was her wish that, after 14 months of struggling with cancer, she would come home to spend her last days there. On July 7, she arrived in Santa Barbara, a place she loved. She passed away on five days later on July 12.Schatz was born in Dallas, Texas, on Sept. 24, 1962, and moved with her family to Santa Barbara in 1966. She graduated from Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She became an Episcopal priest in 2001 and had the honor to minister in Hermosa Beach, California; Manchester, United Kingdom; Reno, Nevada; San Francisco and Alameda, California.Schatz was talented and had many gifts, and those who knew her described her with one word above all: JOY. This was evident during her ministry as an Episcopal priest. Her final calling was to be canon to the ordinary to Bishop Marc Handley Andrus in the Diocese of California. She called herself the “Mobile” canon, joyfully visiting all the parishes.Schatz was the first woman to be canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of California. She was a tremendous advocate for women in the church, having founded the “Breaking the Episcopal Glass Ceiling” Facebook group. In Schatz’s words:“This is a group for Ordained Episcopal Women whose goal is more women bishops! Together we will: build friendships, support vocational wonderings, share wisdom, identify complexities, listen to frustrations, and celebrate successes with generous respect, deep listening, and abundant trust — with God’s help!”Schatz also provided special care and guidance to vicars, the priests who serve the diocesan missions. She gathered them monthly, forming a vibrant and mutually supportive community. Additionally, Stefani revised the diocesan curriculum for clergy in transition and made it responsive to current needs.Schatz also developed the ministry of Andrus, and it was she who first encouraged him to travel to Paris for the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference. “It is fair to say that the Episcopal Church would not be represented through the presiding bishop at the United Nations climate change summits if it were not for her,” said Andrus in a letter to the diocese. Now, the church has formal status at the annual meetings and will be, for the third year, taking an active role on behalf of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.Schatz is survived by her loving husband of 15 years, the Rev. Joseph F. Duggan; her mother, Iva Hillegas Schatz; father, Lawrence D. Schatz; sister, Heather S. Schatz; nephews, Oliver and Addison Chan Schatz; aunt, Melissa L. Hillegas; cousins, Hunter-Scott (Megan) Hillegas and Thatcher Hillegas; and relatives in Wisconsin, New York and Pennsylvania.Family members who predeceased her are her uncle, the Rev. Lyle C. Hillegas, her aunt, Winifred Syring, her maternal grandparents in Wisconsin, and her paternal grandparents in Pennsylvania.Services of Resurrection will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 30 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1500 State Street, Santa Barbara, and Aug. 12 at 10 a.m. at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.Instead of flowers, contributions “In Memory of Stefani Schatz” may be made to St. Margaret’s Visiting Professorship of Women in Ministry at Church Divinity School of the Pacific.The address is:CDSP2451 Ridge Road Berkeley, CA 94709Attn: Advancement Department.

Challenge The brief was to develop a modern house within the existing frame and extend the house to provide additional accommodations, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, exercise room with steam room and sauna. No restrictions were placed on the design except to respect the form the original Dutch House. Concept The juxtaposition of the classic “house” form with the unapologetically rectilinear form of the addition gives a clear representation of each without confusing the origins of each. Trailer homes are a common site in rural Columbia County and while there aesthetic is generally of the lowest order there is something compelling about their simple rectilinear form; this became the conceptual catalyst for the addition. The Spartan living conditions of the early settlers and the simple clean lines of their architecture were the inspiration to formulate a minimal design solution.Save this picture!©  Courtesy of Messana O´RorkeRecommended ProductsDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorSolution The design for the house developed organically; stripping back various additions and removing interior partitions from previous renovations revealed a classic house form, emulating a child’s perception of a house replete with four windows, a door, and sloped roof with a chimney on top. Our initial investigations for the addition were to produce a design sympathetic to the traditional style, but then the solutions felt so weak and uncomplimentary to the simplicity of the original form that a new approach was developed. Save this picture!©  Courtesy of Messana O´RorkeIt was impossible to determine what the original external appearance of the house was, so it was decided to respect it’s existing fenestration, which was probably initiated in the Nineteenth Century. The oldest surviving six over six sash window was removed and used as a template for the replacement of all the windows, which together with new wide board cedar siding and roof shingles gave the original cottage an eternal image consistent with its eighteenth century origins. The addition’s rectilinear form is separated from the house by a continuous glass gasket, windows are replaced by glass planes and the exterior walls are clad in CorTen steel, which will rust to a point where they complement the cedar siding of the house. The house was planed with two bed rooms and a bath room upstairs and a living room and dining room down stairs separated by a through wall fireplace. The addition contains the Kitchen, guest bedroom and shower room on the ground floor and an exercise room, sauna and steam room in the cellar. The cellar has a large glass door that looks out over the lawn to the orchard. Internally the house’s only surviving finish was about a third of its original wide board floor, which were beautiful 1 1/2 inch thick 16-foot long boards of white pine some widths of which exceeded 24 inches. Save this picture!©  Courtesy of Messana O´RorkeA search around wood salvage yards and investigations of contemporary alternatives produced nothing. Then out of the blue fourteen hundred square feet of eighteenth century wide board flooring appeared at a local antique shop, having been salvaged from a house demolished twenty years ago and then left to gather dust in someone’s barn. The wood was procured and installed in the house. The floors of the addition by contrast are finished in limestone, which was also used for the hearth of the central fireplace in the house. Other interior finishes were shared throughout the house, plaster, exposed oiled wood, and stainless steels. Save this picture!©  Courtesy of Messana O´RorkeThe project started with the purchase of a much-neglected Eighteenth Century homestead in an apple orchard located in Columbia County, New York. The earliest recorded date for the house is 1734, however, many years of use and renovation have made the actual date unclear. Fabricated in huge hand hewn timbers the basic frame and form of the house conforms to the ‘H bent’ frame consistent with Dutch settlers of that time. This, some wide board flooring and a miraculously preserved wattle and daub wall in the field stone basement are about all that remained of the original house.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Villa In Darvishabad / Pouya Khazaeli ParsaArticlesSocial Housing in Milan / studio wokArticles Share Ten Broeck Cottage / Messana O’RorkeSave this projectSaveTen Broeck Cottage / Messana O’Rorke CopyAbout this officeMessana O’RorkeOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHousesColumbiaUnited StatesPublished on December 03, 2010Cite: “Ten Broeck Cottage / Messana O’Rorke” 03 Dec 2010.

Located on a rural site on Whidbey Island, a local family sought a new home and retreat on the site of their family farm. Out of respect for turn-of-the-century agricultural buildings located on the site, the home ticks into the edge of a densely forested hillside, overlooking chicken sheds, a weathered red barn, cattle fields, and a fishing pond. The house appears intentionally modest and humble from the valley, deferential to the pastoral farmlands below. The house was designed as both retreat and part-time residence for a growing family with strong local roots going back several generations on the island. Intended for summer BBQs, fishing retreats, and family gatherings, the house was designed to be flexible and durable, and reflect the layered history both of the site and the family itself.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottSave this picture!Main planSave this picture!© Kevin ScottWhile designed to be comfortable for two, the house accommodates up to 20 people, with a four-bedroom main house and a compete bunkhouse for the many grandchildren and guests. The program of the home is broken down into discrete, modestly sized volumes, carefully woven between an array of large Douglas Fir trees, wrapped around a courtyard of natural and native shrubs and ferns. A low wall of stacked local Basalt stone organizes the volumes and subtly defines the perimeter of the courtyard. the courtyard becomes the visual and physical link between the different volumes, providing access and connection, but offering separation and retreat when desired.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottThe rustic gravel approach to the house meanders through the dense and dark evergreens, opening to the house and layered views of the courtyard and trees. At the owner’s request, intense care and effort during design and construction placed the protection of the trees over construction expediency. What little trefoil required was carefully stored on the site, and is being used as lumber for the farm, cattle fencing, and seasonal firewood fro the fireplace and the new fire pit at the edge of the meadow.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottSave this picture!© Kevin ScottSeveral of the interiors doors and wall art are carved solid cedar slabs crafted decades ago by the family patriarch as a young doctor filling his time between patients, instilling a meaningful connection between the family’s past and present. The new solid plank cedar master bedroom door is designed as a future carving project for the owner, in between his days working the land, clearing brush, and raising organic cattle in the meadow below. With a palette of naturally weathered woods, concrete, locally quarried stone walls, deep oak window jambs, solo plaster walls, and black steel accents, the house strives to be warm and rustic yet simple, clear, and open—a house that honors both the timelessness of the forest and agricultural heritage of the site.Save this picture!© Kevin ScottProject gallerySee allShow lessDominique Perrault Wins Urban Design Competition to Transform and Revive an Industri…Architecture NewsSOM and Fender Katsalidis to Design High-Tech Towers in Sydney’s Central Business Di…Architecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  4420 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officemwworksOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on August 17, 2020Cite: “Whidbey Island Farm Retreat / mwworks” 17 Aug 2020.

Roll back the rent!

Posted on June 15, 2021Categories gkdecinrTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on Roll back the rent!

first_imgNew York – Class lines were clearly drawn as over 500 mostly Latina and Latino tenants demanding, “Roll back the rent!” filled a hearing at Cooper Union College after attending a militant rally outside. The June 27 meeting was the final Rent Guidelines Board hearing for a million New York City apartments. Classified as regulated, the rents on these homes of mostly working-class tenants have risen to increasingly unaffordable levels.More and more tenants must pay over one-third of their income for rent. As gentrification and homelessness abound in the city, community organizing of tenants has leaped forward. The tenants’ groups are growing more active and strong from fighting racist landlords and developers, especially in communities of color.In large numbers, tenants joined tonight to pressure Mayor Bill de Blasio’s appointed Rent Guidelines Board, which finally voted for zero rent increases for one-year leases and a two percent increase on two-year leases. Furious landlords soon attacked this decision.The struggle continues to control the rents so that they are affordable for all tenants in the city, whatever their income.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Lucas Applauds Farm Bureau Opposition to Conservation Compliance/Crop Insurance Link

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Lucas Applauds Farm Bureau Opposition to Conservation Compliance/Crop Insurance Link SHARE SHARE Source: NAFB News Service By Gary Truitt – Oct 9, 2013 Facebook Twitter Lucas says tying conservation compliance to crop insurance would create another layer of bureaucratic, red-tape potentially endangering a farmer’s livelihood at a time when USDA is already overwhelmed with determining wetland designations for producers who are subject to compliance. Lucas says farmers and ranchers are the best possible stewards of their land – successfully using conservation practices to protect our natural resources. Lucas Applauds Farm Bureau Opposition to Conservation Compliance/Crop Insurance Link Previous articleDisaster in South Dakota Further Highlights Need for Farm BillNext articleFarmers Help Build Communities Gary Truitt House Ag Committee Chairman Frank Lucas (AP photo)House Agriculture Committee Chair Frank Lucas believes conservation compliance measures tied to crop insurance would be a misguided and redundant regulatory burden imposed on farmers and their property rights. He’s philosophically opposed to the linkage. That’s why he was applauding the American Farm Bureau Federation Board for reportedly voting to oppose conservation compliance linked to crop insurance. According to Lucas – conservation compliance is already the law of the land. He says all farmers who receive assistance through USDA commodity, conservation and credit programs must protect the nation’s wetlands and environmentally-sensitive croplands. Lucas is a believer in these conservation compliance standards and voluntary, incentive-based conservation practices. He says she shares the concerns of Farm Bureau regarding the inconsistency with which conservation compliance provisions could be implemented on a state-by-state and county-by-county basis.
