ACMA to block eight more offshore gambling websites

first_img ACMA to block eight more offshore gambling websites Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Regions: Oceania Australia Topics: Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has ordered internet service providers (ISPs) to block a further eight offshore gambling websites. The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has ordered internet service providers (ISPs) to block a further eight offshore gambling websites.The authority said Planet 7 Oz, Ace Pokies, Nordicasino, Reeltastic, Spintropolis, Enzo Casino, Times Square Casino and Royal Spinz are operating illegally in the country and must therefore be blocked.Numerous complaints about the sites had been received, ACMA said, including that they had been withholding winnings and treating players poorly.In response to these complaints, it carried out a series of investigations and found that the sites had been operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.ACMA is authorised to request ISPs to block access to any websites of concern in order to help protect consumers. Since the watchdog made its first blocking request in November 2019, some 92 websites have been blocked.In addition, ACMA advised Australian consumers using any of these websites to withdraw their money immediately.“Over 100 illegal services have pulled out of the Australian market since we started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules in 2017,” ACMA said.“Website blocking provides a valuable opportunity to alert the public to illegal gambling services though the messaging that appears when there is an attempt to access the site.”The latest order comes after ACMA last month also requested ISPs to block access to another 11 websites. The sites affected were Happy Hugo, Mucho Vegas Casino, Kahuna Casino, Rich Casino, Box 24 Casino, Bondi Bet, JokaRoom, Omni Slots, Fruits 4 Real, XPokies and Slottica.In May, ACMA also requested that access be blocked to Fortune Casino, Raging Bull Casino, True Blue Casino, Free Spin, Two Up Casino, BoVegas, Cherry Gold Casino, Slots Empire, Real Money Casino, Red Dog Casino and Wild Joker. 18th August 2020 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

Fundraising media DNA: email, the channel donors want to hear by

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. “The research shows how important it is for fundraisers to think carefully about how individuals engage with different forms of communication and the actions they take in response. Just because something is easy for a donor to do doesn’t mean they will do it. For example, fundraisers overestimate how much donors will ‘share’ (Share Index: Estimated 127 vs. Actual 98) or ‘research further’ (Research Index: Estimated 127 vs. Actual 106) following a fundraising email.“It’s easy to click a link in an email or forward it to a friend, but donors will only do this if it has memorable and interesting content. Asking people to do something is also key – don’t assume people will do something just because the functionality is there – make it explicit and give them a clear reason why.”Daniel Fluskey, Head of Policy and Research, Institute of Fundraising “The difficulty with email, as with many channels, is that we as individuals respond in different ways at different times. Sitting on a train, I’ll read every word of an email, take in the details and file for acting on later. Open it in the office and it is likely to get ignored among all the other more ‘urgent’ responses needed. Getting the timing right for a campaign – when those emails are sent out – is as important as ensuring there is a compelling subject line that will grab my attention. We can see that email is not attention-grabbing (Index: 85) or memorable (Index: 73), so those few words are of vital importance.”Scott Logie, MD, REaD Group Insight More people prefer to hear from charities by email than via any other medium (Preferred Index; Overall, 196), because emails are unobtrusive, easy to share or save and can be extremely attractive, interactive and personal. The channel’s drawback is that it is more likely to prompt people to do research than to donate.In the fourth report in our detailed analysis of the Institute of Fundraising/fast.MAP Fundraising Media DNA Benchmark study, we look at how donors respond to email as a fundraising channel. You can download your copy of the Fundraising Media DNA report.Who engages with email? Email is easy to respond to (Ease of Response Index; Overall, 134), but it must be remembered that the most likely response is further research (Research Index; Overall, 106) or consider a donation later (Donate/Respond Later Index; Overall, 104). To make the most of these responses charities need to ensure their websites and landing pages are designed to motivate people’s conversion from expressing interest to making a donation.Email is less effective at generating immediate results (Donate/Respond Now Index; Overall, 93), so it is advisable to use it as a way of arousing donor interest rather than generating instant donations.While fundraisers are accurate in assessing that emails are easy to share and file for further research, they overestimate the amount of times emails are shared (Share Index; Overall Estimate, 127 vs. Actual 98).Fundraisers acknowledge that people are unlikely to donate just because of emails, but the medium can play an important role in a multi-channel campaign which includes for example, direct mail. Email is donors’ most popular channel for receiving communications from charities (Preferred Index; Overall, 196).Email is commonly viewed as a younger-audience medium; but even so fundraisers underestimate the number of 18-34s who engage with it (Engagement Index; 18-34s Estimate, 84 vs. Actual 121).The over 55s over-index across all attributes and are more likely to take action as a result, indicating email’s viability as a contact medium for this group.High-value donors are more likely to engage with it than low-value ones (Engagement Index; High Donors, 130 vs. Low Donors, 111) making it a valuable fundraising channel.What is email’s personality?All donor groups overwhelmingly prefer to hear from charities by email (Preferred Index; Overall, 196). Older groups regard emails as more “personal” than younger ones (Personalised Index; 55+, 159 vs. 18-34s 111), but even so fundraisers overestimate this personal appeal to over 55s. The only media which are rated as being more “personal” are direct mail (Personalised Index; Overall, 133) and SMS (Personalised Index; Overall, 140).Surprisingly, the 35-54 age group finds emails more relevant than the 18-34s (Relevant Index; 35-54s, 150 vs. 18-34s 107).Despite concern about email scams, overall people trust it (Trust Index; Overall, 111), although 35-54s display more concern (Trust Index; 35-54s, 93).Email is not regarded as particularly attention-grabbing (Attention Index; Overall, 85) or memorable (Memorable Index; Overall, 73). This is not surprising given that people receive so many emails: 53% say they get more than three emails each day, or over 21 every week. (Source: DMA Email Tracking Report 2014).This can be improved by using appealing subject lines and scheduling multiple emails into a campaign.Women are more likely to hold onto an email or file it for reference (Retainable Index; Female, 212 vs. Male, 116), suggesting reminder emails would increase response and engagement.All groups welcome them, resulting in an over-index score of 124 (Welcomed Index; Overall, 124), probably because the medium is regarded non-intrusive and friendly.Men (Appearance Index; Male, 112) and 18-34s (Appearance Index; 18-34s, 112) rate email for its appearance, because fundraisers have become adept at utilising everything from eye-catching colour to photos, videos and links to produce interesting content. This particularly appeals to low-value donors (Interesting Index; Low Donor, 147). Advertisement Howard Lake | 28 October 2015 | News “The research shows email is a versatile channel which appeals broadly to all audiences. Fundraisers fail to realise that 18-34s are so willing to engage with charity in this way (Engagement Index: 18-34. Estimated 84 vs. Actual 121). This means all audiences have to be considered when devising appropriate content and creating motivating calls to action.“Email also over-indexes for many personality attributes, including interesting content (Index: 129), being relevant to people’s likes and dislikes (125) and feeling personal (125). In fact, personalisation is an inherent feature of the channel.“Charities which use sophisticated data collection techniques might want to examine supporter interests to send tailored messaging – though care must be taken not to cross the ‘creepy line’ where the inclusion of too much personal information becomes disturbing and detracts from the message.“Email can complement and reinforce messages in other channels such as direct mail and DRTV. It is important to create excellent web landing pages when using email, because a likely response is for people to research further (Research Index: 106) at which point they need to be convinced to make a donation.”David Cole, Managing Director, fast.MAP • Read about the publication of the fast.MAP/IoF Fundraising DNA Benchmark report• Analysis one: building trust in charities• Analysis two: DRTV• Analysis three: how donors respond to fundraising channels by age Tagged with: Email fundraising Individual giving Research / statistics Main image: charnsitr / Shutterstock.com Fundraising media DNA: email, the channel donors want to hear by What people have to say about email“We know that email is an important part of the marketing mix for most charities. Gone are the days when charity supporters engaged only through the offline channel. Used appropriately, email marketing can deliver outstanding results – for example, Médecins Sans Frontières introduced marketing automation and a targeted segmentation strategy to improve the supporter journey and increase donations by 154%.“The fast.MAP research highlights email as the preferred channel to hear from a charity across all demographics, regardless of the preconceived younger / older audience split (Preferred Channel index: 18-34: 185; 35-54: 217; 55+: 205). Why? Perhaps because it’s understood by supporters to be a highly cost effective channel for charities to use. Perhaps because donors can read it at their leisure, at home or on the go, and easily click through to find additional relevant content. In 2015, donors expect charities to follow them across channels and for all messages to be personal, timely and relevant – email has a vital role in that equation.“However, despite its popularity with recipients, the report also suggests that email may not always be the best channel for driving donations, so how do we ensure this type of digital marketing continues to work hard?“The answer will be different for each charity and its audience, though with our clients we’re continually improving email effectiveness through increased personalisation and relevancy, using rapidly developing platform capabilities to drive speed and efficiency, and strengthening engagement through the application of behavioural planning principles. Used at the right moment, email truly encompasses the mantra of targeting the right person, with the right message, at the right time.”Dr Kiki Koutmeridou, Behavioural Scientist, Instinctiv; Nick Daggett, Partner Channel Management, Communicator.

Market Square makes changes in response to student complaints

first_imgErnest Dominick is a journalism major with a minor in general business. He is from Marksville, Louisiana but has been based in Dallas since 2006. He is currently serving as a reporter for Greek Life at TCU. TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Fort Worth Botanic Garden holds grand opening for butterfly exhibit The locations of the Oasis salad line and Stacks sandwich line were switched to increase efficiency and respond to students’ requests for a panini press, he said.“I think the plates are much more aesthetically pleasing,” said first-year student Emily Shands. “The silverware has become more accessible and the sandwich line went faster in the new location.”Noting choke points as a source for slow line flow in Market Square, Student Government Association Dining Committee chair Ben Taylor said the changes were long overdue.“My committee and I definitely felt it was time for a makeover to some of the visual aspects of Market Square,” he said. “The changes improved the student experience in subtle but significant ways.”Sophomore pre-business major Bo Prock said the changes “make the BLUU look cleaner and more professional.”Majestic also pointed out preservative-free bread options through a new partnership with a Dallas-based bakery, Empire.“We will be featuring a few of their bread [options] each week, [and] the types will be noted on a small chalkboard at Stacks,” he said.Taylor said the new changes were not made to bring in more students because Market Square already serves over 25 percent of its designed capacity each day.“The changes were not geared towards bringing in more people, but improving the experience for the people that do eat in Market Square,” he said. “A lot of these changes were made to ease the flow of traffic and eliminate choke points.”Both Taylor and Majestic said the SGA Dining Committee and Sodexo will continue to meet to discuss future changes.“We are constantly evaluating culinary and university trends,” Majestic said. “With the help of the Dining Committee we will continue to look for ways to innovate and change programming in Market Square.”Majestic said changes have also been made behind the scenes. For example, the Dining Services team has added a customer relations manager to its team.“This manager is available to meet with students and discuss any concerns they may have,” Majestic said.For further comments or concerns about dining at TCU, visit: https://tcu.sodexomyway.com/people/feedback.html Ernest Dominick Ernest Dominickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ernest-dominick/ Ernest Dominickhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/ernest-dominick/ Market Square may be seeing renovations as early as this summer.

The first-year signal caller also added 75 yards on the ground.After taking a 21-point lead just three minutes intothe second quarter, the Frogs defense struggled, giving up a 28-3 run by theRed Raiders on which they took the lead late in the third quarter.“Offense did good. Defense tried to screw it up,” head coach Gary Patterson said. “I’ve never seen a group try to screw it up, but we found our way to get our stops.”Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey feasted on the TCUsecondary for 333 yards and four touchdowns.Though TCU did not score a touchdown in the second half, two fourth-quarter field goals by kicker Jonathan Song would be just enough to secure the victory.Song was 4-for-4 on field goals in the win, improvinghim to 21-for-22 on the season.Quarterback Max Duggan evades the defense and runs up field.

Two plays later, Duggan hit tight end Artayvious Lynn to put TCU up 17-0 before Texas Tech could blink.“You have to get off to a fast start,” Patterson said. “They just came off a victory against a team that was probably going to get bowl eligible. For us, we’re one game closer, and that’s what we’re trying to get accomplished.”The wheels kept turning in the second quarter. After the Red Raiders got on the board with a field goal, the Frogs needed just three plays to score, as Duggan hit Reagor on a dart for a 55-yard touchdown. The play was TCU’s longest pass play of the season thus far.The score ties Reagor with former Frog Josh Boyce for second all-time at TCU in career receiving touchdowns (22). Texas Tech didn’t go away though, showing off their offensive prowess on two straight passing touchdowns to pull within eight before the half.  TCU shot themselves in the foot, as both scores came on coverage mistakes.Another Song field goal extended TCU’s lead to 27-16 going into the halftime break. The teams had combined for 542 yards in the first half alone, while TCU and Baylor combined for just 602 yards in last week’s triple-overtime game.The second half started poorly for the Frogs, as cornerback Jeff Gladney was ejected from the game on the fourth play of the half on a targeting call.  On the next play, Gladney’s replacement, first-year Kee’yon Stewart got burnt for a 32-yard score.As if things could not get any worse for TCU, their defensive meltdown continued as the second half went on. After Tech quarterback Jett Duffey shook off tackle after tackle to convert a third down, the Frogs left receiver Erik Ezukanman wide open in the endzone, and the Red Raiders took their first lead of the game with 5:05 left in the third quarter.For the next 14:27 of play, the teams traded fieldgoals and the lead.  With 2:23 left togo, the Frogs were forced to punt and rely on their defense to win the game. Though they had struggled all game, the TCU defense stepped up big when it mattered. On Tech’s first play of their potential game-winning drive, Scott forced a fumble that was picked up by Trevon Moehrig to give the Frogs the ball back.Safety Vernon Scott (26) saved the game for TCU with his forced fumble in the fourth quarter.

One first down, and we were able to get that.”The Frogs advance to 5-5 and will need to win one oftheir final two games to receive bowl eligibility.Barber finished with a career-high eight catches for a career-high 137 yards. Reagor added three receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown.“I don’t really look at stuff like that,” Barber said about his stats. “I just play to win and play as hard as I can.”Up next, TCU will head to Norman, Okla., to face the No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners. Kickoff at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium will either be at 2:30 p.m. or 7 p.m. First TCU spring game since 2018 gets fans primed for a highly-anticipated fall Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.
