first_img The UK government’s Gambling Act review has received broad support, with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Gambling-Related Harm hailing it as a turning point for the industry, while the Betting and Gaming Council urged an “evidence-led” approach. “We’ve made it clear to gambling operators that we will continue to work at pace to take action to protect consumers while the review of the Gambling Act is underway.” “As the statutory adviser to the Secretary of State we look forward to contributing our advice to help with the government’s Review and we will continue our close working relationship with DCMS as the review proceeds.” 8th December 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle The BGC has previously implemented safer gambling measures such as steps to reduce underage ad exposure and a ban on under-25s joining VIP schemes. “Millions of people enjoy an occasional flutter on sports, on bingo, on the lottery, in casinos and online. I hope that everyone has their say in the review – including millions of customers who enjoy betting safely, as well as the hardworking men and women employed in the industry.” “As the standards body for the regulated industry, we strongly welcome the launch of the government’s review,” BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said. “We called for it to be wide-ranging and evidence-led, and it provides an important opportunity to drive further changes on safer gambling introduced by the industry in the past year.” “I very much welcome the launch of the Gambling Review, something which I and many others have long been calling for,” APPG chair Carolyn Harris said. “I hope we are at a turning point in the reform of our wholly outdated gambling legislation.  Tags: Gambling Commission Betting and Gaming Council Michael Dugher Gambling Act All-Party Parliamentary Group House of Lords Gambling Act Review He added that the industry’s efforts to regulate itself had been insufficient, and so new legislation was needed. “Too many families are impacted by gambling related harm and we must protect those most at risk through legislation and policy change.” The review has been anticipated for almost a year, after the UK’s Conservative Party included such a review in its manifesto before winning the 2019 General Election. The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Gambling-Related Harm, the House of Lords, the Social Market Foundation, the House of Commons’ Public Accounts Committee and the National Audit Office have all released reports with recommendations for a new gambling regime. “The deregulated gambling industry has, throughout the last few years, paid only lip-service to the nature of the damage that has been done to people up and down the country,” Duncan Smith continued. Regions: UK & Ireland “In addition, horse racing receives over £350m per year through the horse racing industry levy, media rights and sponsorships, while betting companies spend over £40m a year on the English Football League and its clubs. Other sports, including rugby league, snooker and darts also receive millions of pounds in sponsorship from our members, while casinos contribute over £120m to the tourism economy each year.” “Our members do not allow betting by under-18s, so we welcome in particular confirmation of the government’s decision to ban 16 and 17-year-olds from playing the National Lottery,” he said. “It’s got to be one rule for all.” Meanwhile, the Gambling Commission said it was happy to see the review, which will assess the regulator’s roles and powers come under the microscope. In addition, Dugher noted the financial contribution the industry provides to the economy in general, to the treasury through taxes and to the world of sport through sponsorship. DCMS said that advertising – which may include sponsorship – would be one area examined in the review. Regulation The regulator added that it would assist in the process by providing advice to Secretary of State for DCMS Oliver Dowden and his department. GB industry stakeholders set out goals for Gambling Act Review The Commission also pointed to recently introduced measures on age and ID verification, VIP schemes and gambling with credit cards to show how it has worked to make gambling safer. Licensees, it added, should expect further updates to regulations in pursuit of this goal while the review is ongoing. Email Address House of Lords cross-party group Peers for Gambling Reform has also backed the review, arguing that it was an opportunity to bring in many changes recommended by the House of Lords Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry earlier this year. “It is quite clear that we can no longer allow the industry to regulate itself and it is time, therefore, for balance to be restored, particularly now the advent of new technology has meant that gambling has never been easier to access or promote than it is now.” “Problem gambling may be low at around 0.7% and as the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has said there is no evidence that it has increased in the last 20 years, but one problem gambler is one too many,” Dugher continued. “So I hope Ministers will focus in with laser-like precision on problem gamblers and those at risk. The government must ensure that any changes do not drive people to the unregulated black market online, where there aren’t any safeguards to protect vulnerable people. DCMS said it would assess the Commission’s capabilities “in order to ensure it can keep pace with the licensed sector and tackle the black market”.  Harris reiterated her support for many of the reforms the APPG called for in its June report, including deposit limits, the creation of a Gambling Ombudsman and significant changes for the Gambling Commission. Industry body the Betting and Gaming Council said it welcomes an evidence-led review, which it said would build on its own work to create a safer gambling environment.  “We welcome the government’s review of the Gambling Act which will also consider our powers and resources,” the Commission said.  “Our current legislation is analogue legislation in a digital age, online gambling is unregulated in many areas and mandatory deposit limits and affordability mechanisms are essential,” Harris said. “Gamblers need an ombudsman to support redress and statutory levy must be put in place to support research, education and treatment. The regulator must also be overhauled.  Finally, Dugher said he welcomed DCMS’ decision to raise the minimum age to play the National Lottery from 16 to 18 by October 2021, noting that this helped level the playing field between betting and gaming operators and the lottery. “The APPG has taken huge amounts of evidence from people whose lives have been blighted and torn apart by the terrible aftermath of gambling addiction,” the former Conservative Party leader said. “Our job is to make gambling safer and the review creates an opportunity to build on the progress we have made to protect players and the public – such as strengthened age and identity verification, strict new guidance for so-called VIP schemes and banning gambling with credit cards,” it said. “There is a long list of changes that are required to make the act fit for the digital world that we live in today,” Cowan said. “Funding for research, support and education should not come directly from the industry. Online gambling must be heavily regulated to protect the public. His fellow vice-chair Ronnie Cowan provided a long wishlist of legislative changes he hoped to see come out of the review. These included a complete ban on advertising, a change to research, education and treatment funding and strict online gambling regulations, all of which had previously appeared in the APPG’s reports. The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Gambling Related Harm, a vocal critic of the industry, said it wished to see “bold and significant change” from the review. It encouraged those who have suffered gambling-related harm to respond to the call for evidence. “Children must not be seen as future gamblers and the aspects of games that normalise gambling must be removed. Advertising must end. The list goes on and the Government should not expect an easy ride.”  However, Dugher also pointed out that problem gambling rates had not increased over the past 20 years, and said the Government should make sure to focus on problem gamblers rather than discouraging those who gamble safely in its review. “This is a once in a generation chance to improve much needed gambling regulation in this country and change cannot come soon enough.” Topics: Legal & compliance Regulation APPG vice-chair Iain Duncan Smith said the review was “overdue”, and that given the effects of gambling-related harm, it should have happened a long time ago.  “The review must also take account of the huge economic contribution made by the betting and gaming industry, which employs over 100,000 people,” he said. “This includes £8.7bn a year in gross value added and over £3.2bn to HM Treasury in tax.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

first_imgMonday Nov 20, 2017 French centre goes unpunished after doing this to lucky Springbok French centre Geoffrey Doumayrou should be taking out a lottery ticket after Saturday’s match in Paris. While the home side narrowly lost 18-17 to South Africa, it could have been worse if the officials had spotted what he did to Francois Venter off the ball.Neither referee Nigel Owens nor his assistants spotted the incident, but it was quite clear to see Doumayrou grab Venter between the legs and lift him past the horizontal, before tossing him to the floor, where he landed on as most TMO’s would describe it, his head or neck.Venter appeared to avoid injury and escape unscathed, but it’s the type of challenge that has been heavily clamped down on of late, with us seeing many similar incidents resulting in cards and bans.In this case, it looks as though he got away with it, and France scored their first try of the match literally a minute later. A yellow or red card at that time may have prevented that, and made the Springboks’ task ever easier, against a determined and desperate France side. There has been no citing or mention of it since the game, so perhaps there was nothing in it. But in the 2017 era of players being red carded and banned for far tamer challenges, it comes as a bit of a surprise that this particular challenge was overlooked.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play 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.

Tagged with: brand Celebrity Marketing neuroscience Research / statistics  119 total views,  1 views today An international study on brand properties encourages charities to use a more scientific approach to building and strengthening their brand. Those that tamper with their brand, for example when a new CEO or director of marketing is appointed, risk damaging supporter confidence, destroying ‘brand memory structure’ and in some cases promoting competitors.The study is a collaboration between Phil Barden, Managing Director of Decode Marketing and author of ‘Decoded: The Science Behind Why We Buy‘, and David Taylor, Managing Partner of international consultancy the brandgym, and author of ‘Grow the Core: How to Focus on Your Core Business for Brand Success’.Charities and brand propertiesThe research is “the first global study on brand properties”, namely shape, slogan, sound, symbols, celebrity and similar elements.Its authors point to considerable opportunities to charities for building iconic charity brands if they use a scientific approach that draws on neuroscience and psychology. They can enhance their brand by considering and adopting a wider set of brand properties such as sonic and shape.The survey found that 95% of marketers use logos as brand properties and 85% use colour, but only 18% use sonic branding.[quote align=”right” color=”#999999″]Charities continue to focus on the obvious – logos and colour – whereas properties such as shape, sound and image can be powerful assets in building iconic brands[/quote]Conversely, charities can damage their brand and supporter confidence if they make changes to their brand based on subjective decision-making or as a result of staff changes. Furthermore, the study’s authors argue that celebrities can have a low or negative “Branding Power Score™” and should be used with caution.Indeed, the survey found that 55% of marketers change their brand properties due to organisational change, especially a change in marketing director, with a further 20% changing brand properties based on a judgment call. Only 24% of marketers change brand properties strategically based on quantitative data.Phil Barden explained:“One reason for the current, and narrow, perspective on brand properties is a misconception about how the consumer, or supporter’s, brain perceives and processes brand properties. Charities continue to focus on the obvious – logos and colour – whereas properties such as shape, sound and image can be powerful assets in building iconic brands, something we see so clearly in some of the major charities brands – you only have to think about a poppy or a red cross, a panda, a daffodil for powerful and evocative brand recall.” Advertisement Global study highlights risks to charities of tampering with their brand  120 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 The researchThe research was carried out in July and August 2014. It involved a survey of 85 senior marketing professionals from Europe, Africa, Asia, USA and Latin America. In addition, 1,000 UK consumers took part in the Iconic Asset Tracker™ (IcAT) study. Developed by Decode Marketing, this uses techniques from cognitive neuroscience to evaluate brand properties regarding their impact on branding and brand equity.The IcAT study measured the strength of brand properties, highlighting the ‘iconic assets’ that activate the brand and build brand equity.The technique uses insights from decision sciences on how brand properties are processed and how memory structures are built, in order to enable objective, fact-based management of these brand assets. It enables decisions about which brand properties are safe to change and which are iconic assets that should be sacred.Identifying and tracking the strength of brand properties(l-r) Phil Barden and David TaylorDavid Taylor commented:“The research shows that brand properties are seen as ‘highly important’; however, only half of the organisations surveyed have a proper process for identifying and tracking the strength of these. As a result, brand properties are often chopped and changed based on personal judgement alone or as a result of changes in staff, such as the arrival of a new marketing or fundraising director. This prevents the creation of valuable memory structure in supporters’ minds which can take several years to build. The study presents major opportunities for charities to create stronger, iconic brands.”Barden added:“This knowledge will enable charities to protect their brand memory structure, avoid common branding pitfalls and save money on misdirected rebrands.”More details on the findings and issues are available in free papers available from the agencies on request:1. brandgym has produced a paper on the practical issues of identifying and amplifying brand properties, ‘The Power of Brand Properties’.2. Decode Marketing has produced a paper with more detail on the scientific background and how to set up an iconic asset management platform to effectively steer these important brand assets, ‘Unlocking the Power of Brand Properties through Neuroscience.’ Howard Lake | 6 October 2014 | Newslast_img read more

The station has put its losses in equipment damaged or removed at around 100,000 euros.“The fact that the intruders destroyed some equipment on the spot and removed other equipment but left the station’s cash suggests that their aim was to sabotage its activities,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This attack is very worrying. It means that a real danger exists for freedom of information in Tunisia.”The police went to the station the next day to gather evidence. The station’s representatives said the video footage of the attack recorded by its surveillance cameras should help the police to identify the assailants and their motives.“The Tunisian authorities should make it a point of honour to arrest the instigators of this act of vandalism in order to finally end the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for all the violence against media and journalists in recent months,” said Reporters Without Borders, which pledges to follow the investigation closely.One of five new TV stations to receive broadcast permits since the revolution, El Hiwar Ettounsi has been repeatedly threatened in recent months on Facebook, on which reference was made to an attack a few days before it took place. It poses a threat to the station’s future and the scale of the damage could have a lasting effect on its operations.

As of December, the group now predicts starts will total 1.05 million.For the overall economy, forecasters told the Journal they expect gross domestic product (GDP) will grow 2.2 percent in 2014, dialing back their prediction of 2.8 percent growth made last year. While second- and third-quarter reports have looked solid, the country spent much of the year’s first half shaking off a weak first quarter, which saw GDP contract at an annual rate of 2.1 percent.Despite missing on their predictions last year, the panel remains hopeful for 2015, forecasting 1.22 million housing starts and GDP growth of 2.9 percent as the job market continues to recover and wages pick up.
