Italy’s AGCOM sets out scope of gambling advertising ban

first_img Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Italy’s advertising and communications regulator Autorità per le Garanzie nelle Comunicazioni (AGCOM) has finally set out exactly how it plans to enforce the country’s ban on gambling advertising.AGCOM’s guidance on the so called Dignity Decree, which was approved by Italy’s Council of Ministers in July 2018, confirms that direct and indirect advertising, sponsorship or promotional communications will all be banned.Alongside traditional forms of advertising, commercial communications such as product placement, the distribution of branded items (including competitions with branded products as prizes), advertorials and influencer marketing are all banned.This, it says, aims to reduce rates of gambling addiction and ramp up player protection efforts, especially for vulnerable groups such as problem gamblers, minors and the elderly.However, AGCOM has provided certain ways in which operators can communicate with customers. For example, informative communications are not considered to fall within the scope of the decree.This means information such as sporting odds, jackpots, odds of winning a game, bonuses available and minimum bet sizes can all be communicated to the public via Italian media sites.As expected, retail operators will be allowed to display their branding on signage and shop fronts, as well as products, on offer in-store, provided this does not include inducements to gamble.There will be exceptions for B2B commercial communications, including those circulated in specialist trade magazines, as well as corporate social responsibility communications. This means operators can run campaigns around responsible gambling or providing information about legal gambling products, provided they do not include branding or logos.Campaigns promoting social or charitable projects backed by an operator will also be allowed, again provided the logo does not appear.However, efforts will be taken to limit how much operators appear on internet searches on gambling. Only when a player makes a search specifically relating to gambling should an operator’s site appear in the results, AGCOM says, with licensees not permitted to pay to boost their search rankings.While the advertising ban came into effect from January 1, 2019, the prohibition on sports sponsorship, which includes operator branding appearing on strips and advertising hoarding, does not come into force until July 14. This has been designed to allow deals already agreed to come to a conclusion.The ban came into force alongside a series of tax hikes for the industry, which see online casino and bingo operators taxed at 25% of gross gaming revenue, and online sports betting taxed at 24% of GGR. Land-based sports betting operators now pay a 22% gross revenue, while tax on virtual sports (22%), video lottery terminals (6.75%) and amusement with prizes (18.85%) were also increased.The country’s gambling sector posted year-on-year declines in revenue over the past two months, with revenue for March down 3.7% to an estimated €140.2m (£121.2m/$156.4m) following declines in online and land-based sports betting.

City Administrator and Candidates to Meet on Budget

first_img My husband, Bobby, is sitting right here, and he said the meetings should be open to the public, and said, why are the meetings so secretive? Same old, same old. Apopka’s idea of transparency, is to have a meeting behind closed doors, and only invite CERTAIN members of the public. Mr. Irby, I would like to remind you that the four candidates who are the challengers for seat 3, and seat 4, for council, are not elected yet, and they are nothing more than myself, a citizen, who is a part of the general public. And I mean no disrespect to them. Glen, why don’t you get real? You could of let the public sit in on the meetings, and set the rules, prior to the meeting, that there would be no speaking, and questions from the other members of the public, that were not running for the council. As you stated, Glen, the budget is on-line on the website, in its entirety, then why the behind closed door meetings? It is a smelly, stinky idea, and I don’t like it at all, and I am troubled by such as this, with the public being left out of the equation. What are you all up to, up there at city hall? Seriously?

I did question whether there was a sunshine law issue and was told they were keeping the two seats separate so as not to create any infractions.”Irby explained that one-on-one meetings are not off the table, but that two meetings may be more time-effective.“I considered one-on-one meetings but decided the group idea would not take as long to disseminate the same information. At the forums I will explain to the attendees they can request a one-on-one with me at a later date.”Kyle Becker, candidate for Seat#4 welcomes a chance to talk about the budget.“From how it was presented to me, this is a forum for the candidates of both seats to ask any questions pertaining to the budget. I think it is a good idea, and something I am looking forward to,” Becker said.  “I am really open to any forum, at the end of the day it is an opportunity for me to ask detailed questions directly to city staff leadership.”Irby went on to explain why the public is not invited to this budget discussion.“If the public were to attend and were allowed to speak and ask questions, the candidates would not necessarily receive the personal attention they need to answer questions possibly asked of them during the campaign,” he said.  “If the public ever has a specific question, I can and always do make myself available to answer.”“We have two meetings per month and both are open to the public.  We had numerous budget workshops where the entire budget was open and fully explained.  The public was invited to the workshops.  The budget is posted in its entirety online at the city’s website. All capital projects are discussed in the open and voted on by the Council where public input is always welcome.”Alice Nolan, candidate for Seat #3, will bring the public’s questions with her as well as her own.“I am excited to sit down and speak with Glenn Irby about questions the public has and questions I have,” Nolan said.*****What do you think?  Should the public be allowed to observe these meetings?  Let Your Voice be heard by voting in our online poll below: Bobby Reid February 9, 2016 at 9:56 am Gov.

Top Tips to Travel Like a Local in Alaska this Summer…

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Cruise Planners, an American Express Travel Representative, the nation’s largest home-based travel franchise business network in the industry, wants everyone to make the most of the upcoming travel season. Instead of standing out like a tourist with a camera and fanny pack, Cruise Planners is lending its expertise to those traveling to the great state of Alaska to blend in like a local and experience the true culture of the state.A lot of people think of Alaska and associate it with bears and fishing, and while Alaskan wildlife is breathtaking, the state has a culture all of its own, and it’s not what you may think, there is a rich history and culture in Alaska that is unlike anywhere else in the lower 48.To get the best glimpse of the true character of Alaska, Cruise Planners suggests the following tips and Alaska summer trips:The Klondike Gold Rush is part of the history of Alaska.Remember the Gold Rush: Certain mining cities in Alaska saw their heyday during the Gold Rush, which you can still see today in souvenir shops, time period reenactments, and the railroad. Hop aboard the Alaska Railroad in a windowed rail car where you will be able to view wildlife in their natural habitat. You can even sit and sip local brews made in Alaska and enjoy pints of Gold Rush Golden Ale among other local favorites.Embrace the Culture: There is a rich Native American culture in Alaska, and many traditions and values are still very much a part of the lives of Alaskans. Whether it’s tribal rituals or the amazing art, the rich and historic culture of Alaska is unique and impressive. Check out the totem poles around the state when you visit ports of call.Know When to Go: The travel window in Alaska is condensed, and the travel months are from May through September. This is usually when kids are out of school, so Alaska is a great family destination. Also, during the summer months, the sun is up in Alaska for most of the day and night, only setting for a few hours, which adds to the mystique.See Alaska by Land and Sea: Many travelers visit Alaska for a cruise, but we also recommend adding a few days for a land tour to visit the interior of Alaska. Check out Denali National Park – to get there, many travelers fly or sail into Seward and take a glass-domed rail car with huge landscape views to Anchorage. It’s a beautiful ride and a great way to see the countryside, spot animals and travel through the terrain quickly.Decide How to Get There: Cruising is a great way to see the Land of the Midnight Sun, allowing you to see multiple ports day after day to see as much of this beautiful land as possible. Every traveler’s needs are unique, and there are different cruise lines to satisfy those travel needs. Are you looking to travel with the whole family with onboard activities to keep everyone entertained? Consider a Royal Caribbean International Alaska cruise. Looking for a more upscale and chic Alaskan vacation? Try Celebrity Cruises. Going for a luxury, all-inclusive Alaska experience? Climb aboard a Regent Seven Seas Cruises voyage. No matter how you want to see the Last Frontier, your travel agent can help you with a cruise line that will suit your travel desires.Understand the Geography: There are a few major cruise ports that sail to Alaska: San Francisco, Seattle, Seward (near Anchorage) and Vancouver. Also, some cruises are roundtrip, while others take you through the entire Inside Passage and you disembark and fly home from a different city than you started. Talk with your travel agent to find out which embarkation port and route would be best for you.Alaska is a hot destination this summer and while occupancy is quickly filling up, savvy travelers with flexible dates should work with a travel agent to book something this summer.Join in on the fun this travel season and head up to the Great White North. A trip to Alaska is a one of a kind experience and there is a cruise option for all types of travelers. If you want to combine a cruise and land vacation in Alaska, ask Lee Boughan your Cruise Planners travel advisor about Completely Packaged Vacations for your summer travel www.LeesCruiseAndTours.comLee Boughan is the owner of Cruise Planners of Apopka TAGSAlaskaCruise Planners Previous articleThuy Lowe Enters Race to Succeed Congressman Daniel WebsterNext articleIsadora Dean to be interviewed on “My Hometown” today on WBZW 1520 AM Sheri Austin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!

This project is located on the outskirts of the metropolitan area of São Paulo, on a densely wooded area of 2,568 m2 – an opportunity to think about the house as a shelter for Man in the midst of nature. We imagine this house – a volume of 13 x 29 x 5.55 meters, suspended 35cm from the ground – open to the forest where it is located. The volume is built on steel frame structure, while the internal closure is made of drywall.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nelson KonThe external closure of the volume, however, turned out to be the big issue of the project, since it should provide all the desired integration and at the same time function as a mediator with the forest. The solution founded was to create a closing system consisting of two overlapping layers. The first skin – the exterior – is made of polycarbonate with bi-fold windows, which brings light into the house and helps in the thermal regulation of the internal spaces. The second skin consists of a glass system with sliding windows whose supports and securing profiles are lightweight. The internal volume is therefore covered by a seven meters tall structure, a thermoacoustic tile held by steel frames. The construction of this shelter presupposes the use of industrialized components, which allow a quick and precise assembly.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Nelson KonFurthermore, our desire was to create a volume whose materiality – especially defined by the double skin – enabled various readings of the relation between the house and its surroundings, due to its mimetic characteristics of nature, but to its reaction to weather variations as well. Thus, depending on the conditions of light and the ever-changing position of the observer in relation to the house and the forest, one could see the architecture affirming itself as a box of light, or as an opaque object, or as a translucent volume, or even as a chameleon swallowed by natureSave this picture!© Nelson KonProject gallerySee allShow lessHow Will Generative Design Impact Architecture?ArticlesHaight Clothing Store / Entre Terras + Pablo ResendeSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Carapicuíba, Brazil T.R.

Community, unionists march on bank to stop foreclosure

first_imgNov. 10 march protests eviction.WW photo: Joyce SoleDetroit — More than 100 friends and neighbors of the Cullors family in northwest Detroit, including anti-foreclosure activists and dozens of unionists, gathered at their home Nov. 10 to protest the family’s imminent foreclosure and eviction.The crowd set off through neighborhood streets, chanting and passing out leaflets. They ended the march at a local branch of Bank of America, which has refused to negotiate a loan modification for homeowners Jerry Cullors and Gail Cullors. Bank of America officers shut the doors to the bank and refused to receive a letter of protest.Jerry Cullors, now a retired bakery truck driver and member of Teamsters Local 51, recently took steep pay and pension cuts when his employer, Wonder Bread, went into bankruptcy. This resulted in the couple falling behind on their mortgage payments. Bank of America led the Cullors to believe they qualified for a loan modification, but then began foreclosure proceedings.On Oct. 30, activists physically staved off the family’s eviction and prevented authorities from breaking into the house and taking their belongings to a curbside dumpster. Detroit police were prepared to carry out mass arrests, but an emergency stay was issued by a court that prevented this from happening.It is expected that neighbors and activists will pack the court on Nov. 13 to show the judge that the community demands a stop to this injustice by Bank of America and Fannie Mae, the federal-government-owned entity that now owns the Cullors’ loan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Waterside is a major, multi-use development that is expecting to draw in the foodies of Fort Worth.Taco Diner, Blaze Pizza and Zoe’s Kitchen are a few chains that will be in the Grove at Waterside. The Grove is an area that showcases community art and provides open seating, according to the Waterside website.The Grove will also have public art incorporating the site’s history, a community promotion shed, activity areas for all ages and the re-use of existing playground and amusement ride equipment.Along with the chain restaurants, Waterside is bringing in the concept of “micro-restaurants.”Micro-restaurants are spaces under 1,000 square feet. Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark Property Co., said these compare to mini-dining options or the idea of permanent food trucks.A press release from Trademark Property Co. stated launching local micro-restaurants offers unique business opportunities for local entrepreneurs. The purpose is “to provide local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to lease space they might not otherwise be able to invest in.”The micro-restaurant program coincides with Trademark’s Conscious Place initiative. The overall goal of the Conscious Place initiative is to make sure its properties are more than just places of commerce, but also places of community and meaning, according to the company’s website.Establishments to open soon:Whole FoodsREISur La TableTaco DinerBlaze PizzaZoe’s KitchenMassage HeightsAmazing LashPretty Kitty Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Sierra Tuthillhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sierra-tuthill/ Fort Worth moms host The Best Friend Bazaar Sierra Tuthill is a junior journalism major and film, television & digital media minor.
