first_img27th March 2020 | By contenteditor Topics: Marketing & affiliates Email Address GambleAware urges action on underage ad exposure Problem gambling funding body GambleAware has called for more action to help protect against gambling-related harm, after a new report highlighted the dangers of advertising and marketing exposure among children, young people and vulnerable people. Marketing & affiliates Regions: UK & Ireland Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Problem gambling funding body GambleAware has called for more action to help protect against gambling-related harm, after a new report highlighted the dangers of advertising and marketing exposure among children, young people and vulnerable people.Led by Ipsos Mori and the Institute for Social Marketing at the University of Stirling, the research programme focused on a mixed mode survey carried out among 1,091 young people between 21 May and 13 September last year.According to the report, regular exposure to gambling promotions can change perceptions and associations of gambling over time for children, young people and vulnerable adults.Researchers found that 96% of 11-24-year-old participants had been exposed to gambling marketing messages in the last month, while those that were shown parts of gambling logos were able correctly identify an average of eight out of 10.The report said this early exposure was a key factor as to whether a young person was likely to gamble in the future. If they had a close friend or carer that gambles, they were six times more likely to be a current gambler than those without such a connection.Television was the main source of gambling adverts, with 85% of those aged 11-24 reporting seeing ads, while 70% of children and young people saw adverts in betting shops on the high street, window displays and promotions on shop floors and near tills.Those aged between 18 to 24 had higher exposure to gambling during sports events, on smartphone apps, through merchandise, gambling websites, emails and from word of mouth.The report also highlighted the level of adverts on social media, with 66% of the respondents seeing gambling promotions on such channels. These were most likely to be video adverts while watching clips on YouTube or ads appearing while scrolling through Facebook feeds.As part of the report, the Centre for Analysis of Social Media at Demos collected and analysed gambling tweets over a period of time. Some 888,000 tweets were sent from 417 gambling-related accounts over a nine-month period in 2018, with 825,000 followers of these accounts located within the UK.In addition, the report found that a total of 1.6m tweets sent from the UK had mentioned one of the 417 gambling-related accounts by name.Having analysed the research, researchers at Ipsos MORI identified a number of recommendations to help protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from experiencing gambling harms.These included the need for clearer safer gambling messages and campaigns, to increase the awareness of risk of gambling to children and young people. Ipsos MORI also called for enhanced safer gambling education initiatives, extending to parents.Other recommendations were for a reduction in the appeal of gambling adverts by addressing specific features that may appeal to children, such as celebrities or humour, while also avoiding any references to confusing financial incentives.In addition, Ipsos Mori researchers called for an improved use of advertising technology and age screening tools to help minimise the exposure of content to children, young people and vulnerable adults.“Gambling is an adult activity, but this new research conclusively shows that it has become part of everyday life for children and young people,” GambleAware chief executive Marc Etches said.“The exposure to gambling on social media suggests there is a clear need for social media companies to improve age screening tools and for gambling companies to make full use of existing ones, to help protect children from potential harmful exposure to gambling.“We must always be mindful that gambling is a public health issue and it can have serious implications for people’s mental health.”Steve Ginnis, research director at Ipsos Mori, added: “The research points to the ubiquitous nature of gambling advertising, beyond sports and beyond television; and further demonstrates that the impact of exposure goes beyond traditional selling techniques that elicit an immediate response.“The evidence captured in this research suggests that there is value in taking further action to reduce exposure and appeal of gambling advertising, which in turn is likely to help mitigate against the plausible risk of gambling-related harms among children, young people and vulnerable adults.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidente y PrimadoLa Iglesia Episcopal¿Qué comieron hoy?  El arroz y los frijoles, pescado, pollo, tortillas?  ¿Qué más se comieron, o qué anhelaron ustedes comer?  Yo sé que cada vez que este sínodo se reúne allí hay un montón de comida para todos – y también tacitas de café cubano.  Recuerdo muy buenas conversaciones con Juan Antonio en estas cenas.  Ahora creo que él está experimentando la cena celestial.También sé que ha habido mucha preocupación acerca de la comida por aquí, y que no todo el mundo tiene suficiente para comer.  Al mismo tiempo, sé que hay un montón de paladares abriendo para alimentar a la gente que tiene dinero para pagar.  En los EE.UU., y en más y más de países de todo el mundo, las personas se enferman y mueren por comer demasiado.  La obesidad es un problema creciente en China, en México, el Pacífico Sur, Japón y Oriente Medio.  Tiene muchas causas, pero los  principales son la disponibilidad de alimentos baratos, el costo creciente de los alimentos sanos y nutritivos, y el hecho de que muchas personas no hacen ejercicio regular, como resultado de cambios en el tipo de trabajo.  Más y más de nosotros nos sentamos en las mesas y mesas de trabajo en lugar de trabajar en el campo todo el día.  También está el hecho de que algunos de nosotros comemos cuando estamos tratando de llenar nuestro vacío – y no sólo nuestros estómagos.Hay un viejo dicho, “eres lo que comes.”  ¿Nos estamos volviendo lo que deseamos.Esta noche estamos invitados a comer la palabra de Dios, y se saciarán.  Ese dicho sin duda tiene sus raíces en esta imagen bíblica antigua, afirmó más tarde por Jesús.  Los profetas, ambos los primeros y los posteriores, se utilizan con frecuencia.  Deuteronomio dice: “Este mandamiento no es demasiado difícil para ti … No, la palabra está muy cerca de ti, en tu boca y en tu corazón” (Deuteronomio 30:11,14).  Hemos oído decir a la gente Josué a comer el libro de la ley, y se deja fermentar – se supone que deben meditar o rumiar en lo que Dios pide de todas las personas.  El salmista dice: Prueben, y vean que el Señor es bueno. (34:8).Pablo les dice a los romanos que la palabra de Dios se supone que llenar nuestras bocas y corazones – y él está hablando de la ley, la norma o los principios rectores de la relación entre Dios y los seres humanos.  Estamos destinados a cenar con regularidad la Palabra de Dios, y permitir que forman lo que somos, cómo pensamos y cómo actuamos.  En el evangelio de Juan, Jesús es llamado la Palabra de Dios, y nos recuerda que él es el pan que nos llenará de vida eterna.  Cómeme, dice, que la palabra pase sus labios y la lengua, entre en su corazón, y que va a cambiar su propio ser.  Es el camino a la vida abundante – deje que la palabra se llena, en lugar de sustitutos que nunca va a satisfacer.Ese es el fundamento de nuestra teología eucarística – si comemos el pan y bebemos el vino, nos convertimos en lo que comemos.  No podemos alcanzar la perfección que conocemos en Jesús, pero molécula por molécula, y pensamiento por pensamiento, estamos literalmente alimentado e inspirado para convertirnos en la Palabra de Dios en este mundo.  Hay un término teológico técnico para esto, llamado divinización.  Es un reflejo de lo que un teólogo cristiano primitivo dijo: “Dios se hizo humano para que podamos llegar a ser divino” (Atanasio).  Es por eso que nos reunimos así, semana tras semana para ser alimentado.Si queremos llegar a ser más como Jesús, la dieta a seguir es claro – ‘cómeme’, él dice, ‘probar la palabra de Dios, deja que te llene y te apoye.’  Es por eso que estamos aquí esta noche – para ser alimentados con el pan que satisface.  Pero esto no termina con el llenado completa.  El pan de Jesús es para ser compartido.  Él nos invita a compartir el pan con todos los que tienen hambre, tanto físicamente como espiritualmente.  La epidemia de comer en exceso en este mundo tiene mucho que ver con la falta de alimento espiritual.  El profeta Amós sabía algo sobre esto, y él es muy contundente, “escuchar esta palabra de Dios, ustedes – sobrealimentado vacas, que pisan los necesitados y pedir a sus maridos para más cócteles … Yo les he enviado el hambre, los dientes limpios y estómagos vacíos, pero no prestaban atención … vuelve a mí, odien el mal y amen el bien, y hagan justicia en sus ciudades … “(Amós 4-7).     La palabra viva es la respuesta a ese tipo de hambre, con sus raíces en la injusticia.  La palabra viva es también la respuesta a la clase de hambre espiritual que lleva a las personas a comer de todo y nada, salvo la palabra de Dios de la justicia.   Ese consumo voraz nace del hambre que tiene su origen en una deficiencia dietética de la vitamina justicia – ‘ que se dice, ‘conocer a Dios.’El mundo que nos rodea está muriendo de hambre, por ambas razones – la falta de pan de la tierra y la falta de conciencia de la necesidad de nuestros vecinos.  Se nos ha dado noticias inmensamente buenas acerca de cómo responder a esa hambre.Cuando fuimos bautizados, nos comprometimos a proclamar las buenas nuevas de Dios en Cristo por la palabra y el ejemplo.  Como palabra de Dios y el pan del mundo, en realidad significa que nos dan evidencia de lo que comemos y lo que nos estamos convirtiendo – hablamos y compartimos esa palabra-pan con el mundo.  Nos convertimos en socios en la transformación del mundo hambriento.  Hemos venido aquí para ser alimentado, con la palabra y con el pan.Una colecta que oramos casi al final del año de la iglesia habla del hambre cósmica para la venida del Señor:Bendito Señor, que hizo que inspiraste las Sagradas Escrituras para nuestra enseñanza: Concédenos que para escuchar, leer, marcar, aprender, e interiormente las asimilemos, que podamos abrazar y siempre mantener la esperanza bendita de la vida eterna, que te nos has dado en nuestro Salvador Jesucristo, que vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.Vengan a comer, se llenen, digieran lo que han recibido, y dejan que se cambia, una celda a la vez, una persona y una relación a la vez.  Vengan a ser alimentados, y luego ayudarles a alimentar el hambre del mundo con la justicia de la palabra de Dios.

Situated in the urban area of Engomi in Nicosia, Cyprus, Constantinos Kalisperas  architectural studio completed project PROTON, a three storey building that consists of three spacious single floor apartments overlooking an intriguing park proposed by the Architect. The glass, steel, white concrete building with the clean organic curved lines allowing light to be the primary focus, is a surprise in it self! The building rises above ground interconnecting the surrounding topography within the proposed boundaries, unifying and repositioning the buildings essence within the broader urban fabric and the proposed park across and through the building. Save this picture!Courtesy of CKASThe projection of internal space above and across the park connects private and public, erasing the transitional boundaries that define the programmatic use of each sector of the building. A spacious area is generated by opening the external sliding glazed doors, unifying the terrace and living area, allowing colors of the exterior to interact within the apartment.  By “opening” the façade, the internal programmatic qualities are revealed to the outside, reversing the process and allowing the city to look in. Save this picture!Courtesy of CKASInternally the edges that define ceiling, floors and walls, dissolve into the “pure white”, were the material palette of the house is reduced to emphasize the lightness of the rooms.  Local material such as wood and bronze is carefully used to soften and reveal specific programmatic uses within the white space. Save this picture!Courtesy of CKASOn the south west of the building the impressive curved volume that accommodates the staircase and part of the interior is carefully designed to integrate natural light into specific areas throughout.  The organic white concrete staircase with a sculpture-like form becomes the “spine” of the building and instigates a vertical relationship between the internal horizontal levels. Save this picture!Courtesy of CKASOn the east side, the small openings act like a collective “camera”, framing views and actions of the surroundings were the inhabitant becomes the observer. Light is used as a tool that re-animates the morphological and programmatic qualities of the building. The glass panels of the east facade were the bedrooms are situated are carefully placed combining clarity and obscurity were needed, protecting the interior from the outside “noise” but allowing at the same time maximum light into the rooms. Save this picture!Courtesy of CKASOn the ground floor level sculptures designed by artist Nicos Kouroussis interact with water elements in order to soften the sharp edges providing a flowing effect both programmatically and spatially.  On the south side, below ground level, screened from the vehicular noise, is the pool area providing unity and interaction between the occupants. The “pure white” becomes an invisible canvas inviting for creation, transcending the building’s essence, from a typical to an “extra-ordinary” piece of art.

first_imgNews Convicting “petrolgate” journalist of defamation would be disastrous, RSF says Togo court upholds “baseless and disproportionate” newspaper closures TogoAfrica News Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension September 15, 2020 Find out more to go further Reporters Without Borders and Avocats sans Frontières (Lawyers Without Borders) are concerned about the safety of the staff of the regional bimonthly Tribune d’Afrique and their ability to work freely after one of its journalists, Max Savi Carmel, was interrogated by the police for six hours yesterday in Lomé.The two organizations supported Tribune d’Afrique when a Lomé court suspended the magazine’s distribution in Togo in August 2010 for alleged defamation and dissemination of false information.“We condemn the way the police harassed Max Savi Carmel in an attempt to get him to drop a story he has been investigating and to reveal his sources, in violation of a fundamental principle of journalism,” the two organizations said. “We call for an end to this kind of traumatic incident that is clearly designed to intimidate Tribune d’Afrique’s journalists.”Tribune d’Afrique has decided to suspend publication in Togo for a week in protest against the police harassment of its staff. It has also decided to file a complaint against persons unknown for “espionage” and “leaks” from within its office.This is the account that Carmel gave today of yesterday’s events:After being contacted by a women who called from 00228 98 24 96 39 and said she could give me information for a story I have been researching since 12 December, I went at around midday yesterday, 9 February, to the administrative centre of Lomé, Togo, where I have been living for several years and where I work as a journalist.The woman was supposed to be waiting for me outside the communication ministry office, but when I arrived two men jumped into my car, showed me a gendarmerie ID card and asked me to remain calm and not get violent. Within a few seconds, I found myself in another car, a Camry parked near the Criminal Investigation Department, in which I was taken seven minutes later, at 12:43 pm, to the premises of the Intelligence and Investigation Department (SRI). In an office there, I was subjected to six hours of interrogation that was sometimes heavy-handed, sometimes relaxed and often tedious.I was obliged to provide information about a story that I have been investigating for many weeks. I was expressly asked to give the names and numbers of my sources and to help the gendarmerie to question them. I resisted doing this for hours before being released. They proposed that I should work with the SRI, which I refused outright to do. My interrogation was conducted by Capt. Akakpo, another officer whose name I do not known, and the Director General of the Togo Gendarmerie, Col. Yark.For the entire afternoon I was deprived of the medicine I need for a chronic illness and, despite my insistence, I was not allowed to call my lawyer. I was also deprived of my mobile phone, which Capt. Akakpo examined at length. I was released at 6:45 pm and the gendarmerie offered to take me home. I politely declined the offer. When Capt. Akakpo accompanied me to my car, which an officer had driven to the gendarmerie, I found that the bag containing my computer was open. I would like to point out that Capt. Akakpo had previously asked me to allow him to access my laptop, which I had refused. It is protected by a password. One of my Moov Internet USB flash drives and an ordinary, ash-coloured 4 GB USB flash drive had disappeared. Nothing else had disappeared, as far as I have been able to establish.My car had been driven badly and was scratched because it had brushed against something. I asked them to repair the damage and the Director General gave me an appointment for the next day, today, in order to deal with it. I am very worried about my safety, as I have been investigating several sensitive matters and my newspaper has referred an illegal binding decision by the High Authority for Broadcasting and Communication (HAAC) to Togo’s constitutional court. The Togolese government has for years claimed that Tribune d’Afrique is hostile to the Faure Gnassingbé government. At the end of a 12-minute trial, the newspaper was sentenced to permanent closure and a fine of 63 million (100,000 euros). After a major international campaign, the sentence was reduced.I was not tortured physically nor subjected to any other kind of physical violence during the time I was detained. But I have been traumatised by the experience and extremely upset by it psychologically. I signed a police statement acknowledging the fact that I had been interrogated. The management of Tribune d’Afrique decided at once to provisionally suspend publication and to reduce to a minimum the activities of its Togolese headquarters, located at Adidoadin, Curie des Médias.

No date was announced for the release.”Freeing a journalist and then preventing him from doing his job, under pain of arrest, is a form of censorship,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Taylor urging him to free Bility unconditionally without the threat of new imprisonment.Bility, whose paper is very critical of President Taylor, was arrested on 24 June and accused of collaborating with rebels of the group Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy based in the north of the country. Jailed without trial and in a secret place, he was considered a prisoner of war, to be tried by a military court.Taylor’s announcement came after international demands for news of Bility’s whereabouts and for him to be formally charged, in accordance with the law.
