UK goes to the polls: SNP and Lib Dems

first_img The final part of iGamingBusiness.com’s run down of the proposals put forward by the UK’s main political parties concludes with the Scottish National Party – potentially a key power broker in a hung parliament – and the Liberal Democrats. The Scottish National Party: What the SNP manifesto says:Leading the campaign against problem gambling The SNP was at the forefront of cross-party efforts to reduce the maximum stake on Fixed Odds Betting Terminals to £2, and helped stop Tory attempts to postpone this from spring to autumn 2019.​Tackling Problem Gambling Having led the campaign against Fixed Odds Betting Terminals, the SNP will continue to tackle problem gambling, pushing the UK Government to treat it as a public health matter and tackle it with a joined-up strategy.We will press for greater devolution of gambling regulation to the Scottish Parliament and press the UK Government to stop underage gambling on video games. We will support changes to charity lottery law to reduce bureaucracy and maximise returns to good causes and we will support a full public health inquiry into gambling related harm.Protecting our children from online harm The internet is an amazing resource we all now take for granted, and technology means we are just a click away from finding out anything we want to know and online communities can help us feel connected. However, the online world can also be a place where our children see images that are unsuitable or are distressing and where they could be put at risk from harm.We all want our children to be safe and do we all we can to protect them, but when it comes to online harm, we are behind the times in tackling it.How iGB reported on the manifesto launch. What the industry says:General thoughts on the manifesto: Duncan Garvie, thePOGG (DG): While the SNP cannot end up as the ruling party at the conclusion of this election due to only fielding candidates in Scotland, they are currently the third largest party in the Houses of Commons, with nearly three times as many MPs as the Lib Dems.If current polling is to be believed – indicating a rapid slump in support for the Lib Dems as their voters migrate to Labour and a near double digit rise in the number of MPs the SNP are likely to have – the SNP are potential king makers in any hung parliament situation.

Dan Waugh, Regulus Partners (DW): Gambling policy has been a staple of SNP manifestos for a number of years now but this time around they seem to be simply falling in line with Labour. The difference of course is that the party would like gambling legislation and regulation devolved to Holyrood.Reaction to gambling-specific elements: DG: The SNP manifesto stipulates that they will press for further devolution of power in this sector and this seems likely to be significant if they do end up with the deciding voice on 13 December.It could result in different standards being required north of the border and given the SNP’s previous focus on FOBTs and current attention to loot box style video game gambling, this seems likely to result in reduced maximum bet limits as with the current Labour manifesto and restriction on skin gambling. The Liberal Democrats What the Lib Dem manifesto says:Gambling regulation: Introduce a compulsory levy on gambling companies to fund research, education and treatment of problem gambling. Ban the use of credit cards for gambling. Restrict gambling advertising. Establish a Gambling Ombudsman.Gambling as a public health issue There are 340,000 problem gamblers in the UK including some 55,000 children aged 11 to 16. The Liberal Democrats will introduce further measures to protect individuals, their families and communities from problem gambling.Business Our priorities in the next parliament will be:Investing £130 billion in infrastructure – upgrading our transport and energy systems, building schools, hospitals and homes, empowering all regions and nations of the UK and developing the climate-friendly infrastructure of the future.Enabling an adaptable, future-focused workforce – empowering individuals through new Skills Wallets worth £10,000 for every individual.Introducing a wellbeing budget and basing decisions for government spending on what will improve wellbeing as well as on economic and fiscal indicators.Support the UK’s diverse, inclusive tech sector by teaching core skills such as logic, verbal reasoning and creativity in schools, and by reforming immigration rules – including enabling industry bodies to sponsor work visas.Support the growth of new jobs and businesses in the tech sector by allowing companies to claim R&D tax credits against the cost of purchasing datasets and cloud computing, simplifying the regulatory landscape and speeding up regulatory change.Ensure that new technologies are used in ethical and responsible ways.How iGB reported on the policy announcements. What the industry says:General thoughts on the manifesto Duncan Garvie, thePOGG (DG): The Lib Dems manifesto is a classic opposition party program of ‘radical change’ – with little realistic chance to gaining significant influence the party seems to have looked to roll out hardline policies that will ring true to the ideals they proport to stand for but may be more challenging to deliver in the unlikely event that Jo Swinson was to gain the keys to number 10.Julian Buhagiar, RB Capital (JB): The thing about the LibDems is that boy do they try to make sure they’re properly in the middle of the middle ground. Apart from Brexit of course, they’re going to forcefully revoke without any questions, not understanding that most of the reasonable Remainers have already made peace about the next seven years being full of thin cows anyway.So, whilst they’re repeatedly keen to push the protest-vote button (as seen in the recent European Parliament elections) and as their manifesto can attest, they will not do any good for gambling (or indeed big business) in the short or long term.Reaction to gambling-specific elements Dan Waugh, Regulus Partners (DW): The Lib Dems have effectively cut and pasted Labour Party policy announcements on gambling. They have very little expertise within the party when it comes to gambling (with the exception of Lord Foster of Bath and the former Member for Withington, John Leech) and seem to simply be piggy-backing the issue. DG: The Lib Dems commitment to a new levy on gambling companies mirrors Labour’s commitment and effectively introduces a new tax to the sector in a market that is already high up the tables in terms of gambling tax. While the objective is unquestionably a positive one, given that we have seen a significant number of operators exiting the UK market over 2019 primarily due to the overheads that are part of this market, further increases in tax would seem likely to further reduce competition in the marketplace which is never a good thing for consumers.

The ban on credit card use in gambling is in writing a far stronger commitment than the Tory review of “credit card misuse”, but realistically likely makes very little difference given that all indications are that the Gambling Commission intends to move in this direction in the near future regardless of party pledges.
JB: Ah, those good, honest hardworking Yellows. Surely a world replete with their policies would be truly great to live in. Sadly not, at least not where gambling is concerned. They are intent on creating thinktank workgroups for every single gambling policy in existence. In other words, a business breakfast meeting every day for the rest of your life, complete with those croissants that come pre-packaged with jam. 

DG: The restriction on gambling advertising is something that will happen sooner or later anyway in my opinion. UK TV advertising is reaching saturation point with adverts for online gambling and any party looking to credibly address gambling addiction will end up turning their attention to this issue.

The Lib Dem manifesto commits to the establishment of a “Gambling Ombudsman”. An Ombudsman service is simply an alternative to the already existing Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system that all UKGC licensees have to participate in and in which significant time and resources have already been invested. There are pros and cons to both models, but committing to switching from one to the other should be backed-up with substantive evidence to suggest that the switch would result in a significant improvement for consumers, enough so to justify the expenditure of tax payer money to dismantle the current system and start from scratch. If that evidence exists, I have not seen it.

The greatest opensides of all time: Jean-Pierre Rives

first_imgHe has found new fame as a sculptor and artist, exhibiting across the world. Google him and you will find as many references to that as to his rugby.He maintains some connections with the game, as he was involved in the World Cup in France in 2007 and he created the Giussepe Garibaldi Trophy, which is awarded annually to the winner of the Six Nations match between France and Italy. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Major teams: Toulouse, RacingCountry: France
Test span: 1975-84France caps: 59 (59 starts)Test points: 20 (5T)Nicknamed Casque d’Or – Golden Helmet – Rives was the star of French rugby in the 1970s and 1980s and became one of those rarities in the world of rugby: a player who was famous beyond the sport.Rives captained France a then record 34 times, playing alongside Jean-Claude Skrela and Jean-Pierre Bastiat in a legendary back row. His style was the very essence of what was seen as the typically French mode: gloriously free-spirited, unpredictable and entertaining. He only wanted to drive a maul to one place – right out of the game. As he told the Irish Independent in an interview last year: “The ball is the star. People want to see the ball. Kids want to see it being passed.”Born in Toulouse on New Year’s Eve 1952, Rives was considered too small to be a top-class openside as he never reached 6ft, but his tremendous bravery and seeming ability to be everywhere on the pitch at once saw him win his first cap when he was only 22. Jean-Pierre Rives of France The seemingly constant bloodied face of France’s openside flanker Jean-Pierre Rives, is a testament to his commitment to the sport TAGS: The Greatest Players He helped France win a Grand Slam in 1977, led them to arguably their finest victory of all time as they beat New Zealand 24-19 at Eden Park on Bastille Day in 1979, and won a second Grand Slam in 1981.France’s Player of the Year in 1977, 1979 and 1981, he was finally forced into retirement by shoulder problems in 1984, but the honours kept coming as Rives was given the Order of the Legion of Honour in 1986 and the National Order of Merit in 2009.last_img read more

Three questions guided us in the AM House design: free area, rainwater, and the level of construction on the lot in relation to the street view.Save this picture!© Manuel SáThe house was designed so that the garage level is 30cm higher then the level of the sidewalk, in order to solve both the issue of rainwater drainage and possible concealment of the building in relation to the surroundings. To avoid an excessive height of the retaining wall at the bottom of the terrain, the dwelling has a “break” of 65cm in the internal levels: the intimate area of ​​the program is lower and private compared to the higher and more social area of ​​the house.Save this picture!© Manuel SáSave this picture!Planta – TérreoIn order to conserve the maximum free area, the strategy adopted was to concentrate the necessities program in such a way as to create a prismatic core, opening when convenient to better direct natural light and ventilation, organizing the internal spaces and avoiding corridor areas.Save this picture!© Manuel SáThe external staircase connects the balcony to the upper portion of the dwelling, a solution that comes from a special request from the clients: an isolated room with an independent access from the house, a room that would serve as practice room for a band. The adopted solution, positioning the room on the upper floor, places the sound and vibration on top, acoustically isolated. The balcony is an important axis of access to the practice room: the external concrete staircase, allows access not only to the practice room, but also to a garden terrace, ensuring the best view, ventilation and sun light of the terrain, facing southeast.Save this picture!© Manuel SáThe necessities program is accommodated by a woodboard reinforced concrete structure, which beams overcome large spans, transversely and longitudinally.Save this picture!© Manuel SáSave this picture!Longitudinal sectionThe sun position is important to the position of each room of the house.

The strong gable forms satisfy the design guidelines of the subdivision. Exaggerated overhangs further emphasize the gable roof forms and create protection from the elements. The roof forms are tapered to provide plentiful light and maintain a thin profile. Minimalistic truss structures and sleek floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed views.Save this picture!© Tom HarrisThe main gable of the home encompasses the entertainment hub, a seamless transition between kitchen, dining, and living spaces.

These materials were selected for the warmth and the quality of reflected light to create a comfortable family gathering space. The layout and variety of larger open spaces and smaller intimate spaces allow for entertaining family and friends.

De twee belangrijkste uitkomsten van het partnerschap zullen de residentie met merknaam Aman Residences, Tokio en het luxe hotel Janu Tokyo, Aman’s zustermerk, dat het debuut markeert van het merk Janu in Japan. Dit persbericht bevat multimedia. Bekijk hier het volledige persbericht: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210219005039/nl/ Toranomon-Azabudai Project (image) (Graphic: Business Wire) Shingo Tsuji, President en CEO van Mori Building, zei: “ Tokio moet iets toevoegen aan haar magnetische kracht als de stad wil slagen in haar concurrentie met de grootste steden in de wereld. Mori Building en Aman slaan de handen ineen. Aman exploiteert verscheidene resorts van wereldklasse, om een in de rest wereld ongekende woonomgeving en hotel te bieden anders dan ooit eerder is gezien in Tokio, waar mensen harmonie met de natuur zullen ervaren en zich met anderen verbinden en anderen inspireren door middel van creativiteit. Door deze nieuwe vorm van ‘stedelijke wellness’ te realiseren zal Mori Building Tokio’s magnetische kracht versterken.” Vladislav Doronin, Chairman en CEO van Aman en Janu, zegt: “ Het lanceren van onze eerste stedelijke Aman Residences in Japan is een mijlpaalmoment in de geschiedenis van Aman en een voorbeeld van de nauwe relatie van ons merk en de symbiose met dit land en haar ongelofelijk bijzondere cultuur. Samenwerken met vooraanstaande ontwikkelaars van Mori Building en deel uitmaken van het Toranomon-Azabudai-project zullen ons in staat stellen het vijfde nieuwbouwproject van Aman binnen Japan tot leven te brengen, waarbij we deze keer aan eigenaren een permanente thuisbasis bieden en exclusieve toegang tot de Aman-leefstijl. Bovendien zal het de setting zijn voor Janu Tokyo. In deze hub van cultuur en kunst willen we gasten in contact brengen met het hart van deze levendige gemeenschap en een kans bieden op creatieve expressie.” Aman Residences, Tokio — unieke stedelijke woonervaringen Aman Residences, Tokio zal gevestigd zijn op de verdiepingen 54–64 van de 330 meter hoge A District Tower, zal 91 hotel-branded residenties bieden met exclusieve diensten, waaronder een Aman Spa uitsluitend voor bewoners (circa 1400 m²). De voor Aman kenmerkende gastvrijheid – zowel warm als pretentieloos – zal de bewoners in staat stellen een buitengewoon rustige leefstijl te genieten, met uitzicht op de bruisende wereldstad Tokio. Het verfijnde architecturele ontwerp is het geweldige werk van Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects (USA) en de binnenhuisarchitectuur is van de hand van Yabu Pushelberg (Canada). Janu Tokyo — Aman’s zustermerk maakt haar debuut in Japan Aman’s luxe hotelmerk Janu maakt haar debuut in Japan met Janu Tokyo op de verdiepingen 1–13 van de B-2 District Tower. Het hotel is ontworpen door Denniston (Maleisië) onder leiding van Jean-Michel Gathy. Naast ongeveer 120 luxe kamers die alle prachtig uitzicht bieden op een centraal plein met een overvloed aan groen zal Janu Tokyo prat gaan op de grootste spa van Japan (ongeveer 3500 m²) met spabehandeling en een fitnesscentrum, zes restaurants en een café en bars voor vrijetijds- en zakelijke bijeenkomsten. Janu Tokyo zal gasten van over de hele wereld verwelkomen. Over Aman Aman werd opgericht in 1988 met als visie het bouwen van een verzameling huiselijke retreats met de pretentieloze, warme gastvrijheid van een elegant privéhuis. Het eerste Amanpuri (plaats van vrede), in Phuket, Thailand, introduceerde het concept en sindsdien is Aman uitgegroeid tot een groep van 33 verfijnd serene hotels en resorts in 20 bestemmingen wereldwijd, met nog eens zeven in aanbouw. De volgende Aman die zijn deuren zal openen is Aman New York. In 2020 werd een nieuw hotelmerk met de naam Janu, wat in het Sanskriet ‘ziel’ betekent onthuld. Janu biedt een unieke zienswijze op gastvrijheid waarbij oprechte menselijke interactie, speelse expressie en sociaal welbevinden de kern van de ervaring vormen. Het doel van Janu is om evenwicht te brengen in hoofd en hart en de ziel weer doen opvlammen. Janu pakt uit met drie aangekondigde hotels die al in aanbouw zijn: Montenegro (2022), Al Ula in Saudi-Arabië (2022) en Tokio (2023), alsmede een robuuste pijplijn van toekomstige hotels.
