Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Flutter to block credit cards in Ireland in new safer gambling initiative Flutter currently contributes €450,000 to the Gambling Awareness Trust. Last week, Ireland’s Labour Party introduced a bill to ban all non-sponsorship gambling advertising in Ireland. The party said the bill would divorce the gambling industry from the everyday enjoyment of sports and entertainment. Conor Grant, chief executive of Flutter UK & Ireland, said that he welcomed the Irish Government’s commitment to bring in specific regulations governing online gambling in Ireland, but added that operators must do more of their own accord. In addition, the operator will invest 1% of net gaming revenue from Irish customers, a figure expected to be around €3m, into research, education and treatment of problem gambling by 2023. The funds will go to Ireland’s Gambling Awareness Trust and “emerging initiatives” across Ireland. Tags: Flutter Entertainment Ireland “We recognise that gambling has undergone a technological transformation over the past two decades,” Grant said. “The influence of the smartphone, social media and on-demand streaming has been profound. We understand that legislating for these developments is complex and may take some time. From 1 May, Flutter brands will no longer advertise during live sport before the 9pm watershed, with the exception of ads during horse and greyhound racing. Topics: Social responsibility CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “We have decided to introduce several measures, well in advance of the legislation, to enhance the effectiveness of our safer gambling policies in Ireland.” 22nd February 2021 | By Daniel O’Boyle Flutter Entertainment has introduced a series of new player protection measures for its operations in Ireland, including a ban on the use of credit cards, a “whistle-to-whistle” television ad ban and a €3m research, education and treatment commitment. Social responsibility Flutter’s brands, which include Paddy Power, Betfair and Sky Bet, will all no longer accept credit cards for transactions, either online or in Paddy Power retail shops. The change will come into effect in early April. Email Address
Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Sen. Linda Stewart will not file a proposed assault weapons ban bill for the upcoming legislative session. The Orlando Democrat said in August she’d file 2020 bills seeking to ban three different types of “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines.”Stewart followed through with one of those pledges last week when she filed Senate Bill 794, which would make Florida the 10th state to ban magazines that can carry more than 10 bullets effective Oct. 1, 2020.But Sen. Gary Farmer, D-Ft. Lauderdale, confirmed Thursday that he, not Stewart, will file a Senate bill seeking to ban “assault weapons” before the session begins on Jan. 14.And, as he has done the last two years, Farmer said he will file a Senate companion to Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith’s proposed “assault weapons” ban, which was filed Wednesday as House Bill 627.“This legislation will save lives; we’ve known this for years. Doing nothing is simply unacceptable anymore,” Farmer said in a news release. “I’m proud to stand with Rep. Smith in proposing a solution that will undoubtedly reduce gun violence in Florida, just as similar bills have in California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. It’s time for Florida to step up and stop the sale of these dangerous military-style weapons.”Unlike Stewart’s prospective “assault weapons” ban, which would have prohibited three specific groups of “assault weapons” – Sig Sauers, AR-15s, AK-47s – Smith’s HB 637 lists dozens of specific makes and models of handguns, rifles, and shotguns that would be banned.“We owe it to the victims and families of Pulse, MSD (Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) and of everyday gun violence to keep assault weapons off our streets,” Smith, also an Orlando Democrat, said in a statement. “As Orlando and Parkland communities know all too well, easy access to weapons of war has destroyed the lives of innocent people and families.”HB 627 is Smith’s fourth proposed “assault weapons” ban filed every year since 2017 and among nearly two dozen proposed gun control bills filed for the 2020 session although few are likely to gain much traction in the Republican-controlled Legislature.“Several other states and even entire countries have taken action to ban assault weapons after horrific mass shootings in their communities,” Smith said. “Why not Florida? It’s past time to hear the bills.”HB 627 has not been referred to House committees. Stewart’s SB 794, filed Nov. 6, has also not yet been assigned to committees.Stewart’s proposed magazine cap is similar to SB 558, pre-filed on Oct. 17 by Sen. Randolph Bracy, D-Orlando, which also would limit magazine capacities to 10 and prohibit their possession, although Stewart’s proposal includes enhanced penalties for importing and for accommodating possession by those under 21.SB 558 awaits hearings before the Senate Infrastructure & Security, Criminal Justice and Appropriations committees.With Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, calling for the Senate to “better understand the various factors involved in mass shootings,” including a focus on “white nationalism,” gun control measures that have idled in the past could see the light of day next session. Among them:SB 310, pre-filed by Stewart on Sept. 17, would prohibit anyone from printing, transferring, importing into Florida, possessing or giving to another person in Florida, a 3D-printed firearm that contains less than 4 ounces of metal.The bill awaits hearings before the Senate Infrastructure & Security, Judiciary and Rules committees.SB 718/HB 499, companion Senate-House bills sponsored by Sen. Lori Berman, D-Delray Beach, and Rep. Anna Eskamani, D-Orlando, seek to broaden the definition of relationships covered by domestic violence protections under the federal statute that Florida adheres to.Both bills await first hearings before assigned Senate and House committees.SB 134/HB 6009, companion Senate-House bills filed by Sen. Annette Taddeo, D-Miami, and Rep. Dan Daley, D-Sunrise, seeking to repeal a 1987 preemption law that prohibits local governments from adopting gun regulations more restrictive than the state’s.HB 117, filed Sept. 5 by Rep. Al Jacquet, D-Riviera Beach, would require concealed weapon applicants to undergo mental health evaluation. It awaits hearings before the Senate Criminal Justice and Agriculture & Natural Resources Appropriations subcommittees and Judiciary Committee.SB 266, filed Sept. 12 by Farmer, would require loaded firearms to be secured with a trigger lock. It has been referred to the House Infrastructure & Security, Criminal Justice, and Rules committees.SB 460/HB 289, companion Senate-House bills filed by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, and Daley, would require background checks for ammunition sales.In the background is Ban All Assault Weapons Now’s (BAWN) prospective November 2020 proposed constitutional amendment seeking to ban “assault weapons.” The measure, which is being challenged as deceptive by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, had secured 119,893 signatures as of Thursday. It must 766,200 to qualify for the ballot.

The project is located on a lot 20 by 40 meters, with excellent views to the rear lagoon of the Ubajay Yacht Club. In the last third of its depth, it has a level difference of three meters towards the floodplain.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThe adjoining buildings had two unfavorable situations for the project: to the west. a house that mistakenly invades almost a meter, exactly in the middle of the lot, and eastward a service area, somewhat degraded, housed almost to the party wall. We considered the existing trees, especially three pines at the start of the slope towards the pond, a jacaranda on one side and medium-sized tipa in front.Save this picture!Section AAThe land is virtually unique in the region, as part of a typical bank of the coastal system of Paraná River in Santa Fe, but at a safe altitude, i.e. in a non floodplain according to known records. Also, while the place belongs to a private neighborhood, there were some dilemmas as to how to solve a frank contact with the natural landscape without loss of privacy. Somehow the idyllic world of “countries” inevitably also faces the tension between the open and closed, the transparent and the opaque, or privacy and exposure.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThe preponderance of the landscape constituted the basis from which to explore the dialectic relationship between nature and culture, understanding that each opportunity is an occasion to rethink and conceive architecture in this context, here and now… Rethinking should also include certain typological speculations that would consider all the variables, limitations, and conditions of the site.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThis way, the configuration of the volumes and their links procured to stay away from stereotypes and preconceived ideas, so fashionable lately, to recognize the place and solve its spatial organization exclusively from the existing trees, the party walls, the landscape and the topography. This results in a project with contrasts, like the two sides of a coin, that doesn’t hide, and even exacerbates, the tensions that still exist in these urban/suburban localities.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe project is structured through two volumes on the ground floor and one on the upper floor. The first two are offset longitudinally, one to the street and the other to the lagoon. One houses services and a bedroom for the daughters, it establishes a visual barrier to the party wall and frees up the pine area. The other contains the social areas and approaches the rear boundary to introduce the landscape into the house. It also allows to elude the invasion of the other party wall and keeps the jacaranda. A small area between both generates the main access.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliPerpendicularly to these is the upper level, a box with opaque sides that concludes the resolution of privacy intended, closed to the sides.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliTo the street, a wall extends and overhangs to delimit an access courtyard and to close, at least partially, the views to the interior of the house. The use of minimal openings on the entirety of the facade contributes to this. In contrast, even sacrificing the best sunlight, at the back the project opens entirely to the landscape, extending as much as possible through an expansion comprised by a deck that cantilevers over the slope.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliWe used few materials – concrete, white finishes, wood, glass, and aluminum – and the exposed structure acquires relevance in the spatial and expressive configuration of the whole. In short, the project intends to denote its contemporary character without overlooking, in the first place, those permanent preoccupations of architecture: a place, a time, material, weather, and a specific way of inhabiting it.

Charities generate funds by selling items on eBay, but it makes sense periodically to check that your own organisation’s time isn’t being misused in the online marketplace. Brasenose College, Oxford recently found out that it was the subject of just such a student prank.Brasenose College, Oxford, last week attracted bids of £10 million – plus £20 postage costs – when it was auctioned online at eBay. Of course, the auction was a prank, by a student at neighbouring Lincoln College. It was shut down at the request of university authorities, but not before it had attracted 60 bids.On offer, in addition to the college buildings which were, of course, “a used item (since 1509)”, were “510 students… generally quite worn condition, though a few star buys”.

They’re successful because they treat everyone as an individual and they listen and understand the issues and challenges facing all the young people and help them to find the thing that is going to motivate them to get back into learning and to find a job. They’ve been particularly successful at securing apprenticeships and support from local businesses as well as a whole variety of different partners across Loughborough and Charnwood.” Advertisement
