Irish government to set new maximum stakes and prizes on gaming machines

first_img Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Slots Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter The Republic of Ireland’s Minister for Justice and Equality, Charlie Flanagan, has announced plans to cap the maximum stake on gaming machines at €5 (£4.25/$5.51), while the top prize will be set at €500. 28th November 2019 | By contenteditor Casino & games Tags: Slot Machines Irish government to set new maximum stakes and prizes on gaming machines AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: UK & Ireland The Republic of Ireland’s Minister for Justice and Equality, Charlie Flanagan, has announced plans to cap the maximum stake on gaming machines at €5 (£4.25/$5.51), while the top prize will be set at €500.Flanagan put forward the proposals in the Gaming and Lotteries (Amendment) Bill 2019, an interim reform of the law that updates the Gaming and Lotteries Act 1956.Current regulations, which have been in place for some 63 years, state that the maximum stake on gaming machines should be 3 cents, while the top payout is set at 50 cents.The government had previously suggested new limits of €10 for stakes and €750 for prizes, but after passing through Oireachtas, Ireland’s national parliament, it was amended to include the revised amounts of €5 and €500.David Stanton, Minister of State for Equality, Immigration and Integrations in the Republic of Ireland, is steering the Bill through the Oireachtas.A spokesperson for the Department of Justice told iGamingBusiness.com that the Bill is set for debate in the near future, with the aim of it being enacted before the end of the current session in July 2020.The spokesperson also outlined that Flanagan only has influence over regulation related to the stake and prize amounts for licensed gaming machines. Licencing and regulation of the machines, as well as the premises where they are used, is the responsibility of the Revenue Commissioners. The Irish government’s move to set new limits on gaming machines comes after the UK government this year also changed its regulation, drastically cutting the amount players can spent on fixed odds betting terminals.New laws that came into effect in April state that players can now only wager a maximum of £2 per spin on FOBTs, down from the previous maximum bet of £100.Last month, the Irish government also said in its 2020 Budget that bookmakers in the country will receive a relief of up to €50,000 from the 2% turnover tax levied on betting in the country.Effectively, this means bookmakers will not have to pay tax on the first €50,000 in wagers they take each year. The €50,000 limit applies in each calendar year, while the relief will only apply to single undertakings. Email Addresslast_img read more

I wouldn’t hold more than 5% or 10% in a portfolio, to spread risk. I’d also advise against loading up on the precious metal today, as the price jumps beyond $1,700 an ounce. It could fall back as the lockdown eases. Also, gold doesn’t pay any interest.I’d prefer to take advantage of a crashing FTSE 100 share like Phoenix. It’s fallen 25% in the stock market crash, broadly in line with the market, as investors dump good stocks with the bad.Phoenix is a closed life insurance and pension fund consolidator. This means it effectively buys existing ‘heritage’ funds from other pension managers, and cracks on with the job of managing them on behalf of members.The Phoenix share price temptsIt benefits from economies of scale and now has 10m policyholders and £248bn of assets under administration across the UK, Ireland and Germany. It will scale up following the recent acquisition of ReAssure Group, which should boost total assets to increase to around £329bn, making it the third-largest insurer in the UK.Its closed business, the bulk of its operations, has relatively low exposure to the Covid-19 crisis. People still need their pensions. Its sophisticated hedging programmes should limit exposure current risks, as interest rates fall and equities remain volatile, in the wake of the stock market crash.Phoenix does also have a smaller open business, which manufactures and underwrites workplace pensions and SIPPs. This operates via strategic partnership with Standard Life Aberdeen, while its brand SunLife sells a range of products to the over 50s market. These will be affected, as people lose their jobs and look for ways to cut back on spendingToday, this crashing FTSE 100 share yields a tasty 7.81%.

Colombia seeks peace after 50 years of war

Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI August 9, 2016 at 9:23 am Let’s not forget the viscous, brutal attacks on Israeli children and adults since 1948 by Palestinians. To attempt to lay this all at the foot of Israel is, at best, disingenuous. There has been more than enough blame to go around. The unfortunate situation is that neither side really wants peace. The Israeli government, and most of its people, believe that after decades of war the Palestinians only want to drive them into the sea and annihilate them. The Palestinians, and much of the Arab world, still teach that Jews are somehow less than human in their “schools”. The present Israeli government continues to build settlements in the West Bank, ignoring agreements to the contrary. And, as long as terrorist organizations are recognized by the Palestinians as legitimate outlets for their frustrations, there will not be peace. Until both sides truly want peace, there will be none.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Hopkinsville, KY TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ [Episcopal News Service] “Peace is not only the silence of guns and bombs; peace is much more than that … . It is rebuilding an entire social fabric that has been torn for more than 50 years. Peace is a fundamental right, and we have to rebuild it to guarantee a decent life [for people],” said Diocese of Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque in an interview with Episcopal News Service regarding the peace process that is developing in his country.The Episcopal Church closely supports the peace process in Colombia. After a half-century of war and years of negotiations, the government and FARC, the Spanish acronym for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, reached a peace agreement. On June 23, the two parties signed “a definitive agreement to a bilateral ceasefire, to laying down of arms and to guarantees of security.”The agreement is an enormous step toward true peace, according to Duque, who, as head of the Episcopal Church in Colombia, has supported the dialogue process. “We have been very affected by the war; we have communities in conflict zones. But we don’t work just as the Episcopal Church; we work ecumenically with other churches.  The principle of peace is also based on [having] a decent life. There’s a lot of work to do and we will only succeed united as brothers and sisters,” the bishop said.(The Episcopal Diocese of Colombia is one of seven dioceses that make up the Episcopal Church’s ninth province, which covers Central and South America and the Caribbean.)In May, the Episcopal Church agreed at a national convention to support the peace process, offering the government its facilities as “spaces for exercises in reconciliation to succeed in building a sustainable peace.” Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos expressed thanks for the support in an official letter.Pastoral work in the midst of warAlthough the church’s role in the peace process and support for the government was expressed more officially this year, its support for the people and communities has been present throughout the entire conflict, Duque said. The areas most affected by the war are home to four Episcopal parishes, served by two priests and five seminarians.Rev. José Suárez is one of those priests. In 2008, he arrived with his wife and daughter in Palizada and El Bagre – a mountainous zone in northwest Colombia. His predecessor had been retired from the parish following a psychiatric crisis after 15 years of pastoral service. “He was institutionalized for almost a year [and] the church helped him to get a pension afterward. He lived under a lot of pressure and threats. … I agreed to come here because I was ordained for [serving] Jesus Christ and I go wherever they send me,” Suárez said.But he realized in his first days of pastoral work that he would need a great deal of spiritual strength to carry out his job. One day, while he was traveling to a community in a canoe with some parishioners, he came upon a body floating in the middle of the river. His immediate reaction was to retrieve the body, call the authorities, and say a prayer for the deceased. But the reaction of his companions was different.“They told me: ‘Father, don’t touch him. Let’s go. You don’t know what might happen if you take him out of the river. Here it’s better to keep quiet.’ Against all my beliefs, I had to listen to them; I just said a prayer as we continued on our way,” he recalled.The region where Suárez works has many criminal groups. “Here you have to be careful about what you say and who you say it to. It’s almost impossible for a day to go by without someone being killed in the area.”Duque recognizes that Suárez’s pastoral work is a service that requires a lot of courage and commitment. “We can’t give up preaching the Gospel or stop supporting our communities, regardless of the internal conflicts,” he said. “It’s up to us to work, with victims as well as with victimizers, and the church is ready to move forward. We’ve had parishioners massacred and many [others] displaced.”According to data from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, 6.9 million people in Colombia have been displaced due to violence. With the church’s support, Suárez has facilitated the migration of families for security reasons. The result for the families has been good, but the size of the religious community has decreased considerably due to the emigration.“This is a mining area, very rich in metals; there’s a lot of gold extraction. But that doesn’t mean abundance for the people. … For different reasons people end up leaving,” said Suárez, adding that the Episcopal community in El Bagre, which used to have more than 100 people eight years ago, now has only around 50, while in Palizada, the congregation has only about 15.Challenges for rebuilding the countryAfter decades of pain, the announcement of the definitive ceasefire has created many expectations. The Episcopal Church is celebrating the progress, but recognizes that facing the challenges of rebuilding the country and bringing social justice will be an arduous task.The next step is for the population to confirm its support of the peace agreement. On July 18, the Constitutional Court of Colombia upheld the plebiscite that will allow Colombians to support or reject the process.The church is prepared to advocate in the communities for “yes” on the referendum, said Duque.“Not everyone is happy with the announced agreements. Nonetheless, we are supporting this plebiscite that is going to be held; we have offered that support and the government is aware that we (the different churches) have the structures and leaders capable of seeking reconciliation even in places where the state has no presence,” he said.The points to work on, the bishop said, are the indemnification of victims and the pursuit of justice; the rebuilding of the country; and an effort to preserve the historical memory that will prevent the repetition of the atrocities of the war.“We are asking the international community for a lot of prayers, so that all Colombians come out winning, in order that we achieve that peace that we need so badly. And we are also asking for international solidarity; due to the negatives of war, drug trafficking and violence there are very few partnerships with foreign dioceses. We are asking that they accompany us in this process,” said Duque.The church considers the securing of peace to be social and pastoral work. The church already is working with Episcopal Relief and Development to offer micro loans to women heads of household in the conflict zones; these will generate means of earning an income, said the bishop. And Suárez, looking to the future, dares to dream of the type of projects that will bring opportunities for people to get ahead and have a decent life.“There are many needs in health, education and housing. Rebuilding the lives of these people won’t be easy; but with spiritual and material support a lot can be achieved, though it will take many years,” Suárez said.For now, the first step is the plebiscite. Once the government announces the date and publishes the final document of the agreement with the FARC, Colombians will have to vote yes or no on the agreement.– Clara Villatoro is a journalist based in San Salvador, El Salvador.

3 Sales Tech Trends That Will Drive Success This Year

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment! LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSAICRMGen ZsalesTrends Previous articleApopka police arrest man for lewd and lascivious molestation of an elderly womanNext articleSave money and a billion gallons of water this winter; ‘skip a week’ Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Every business wants to increase its sales year on year, but sadly not every business achieves this. Why do some succeed whilst others fail? Sometimes it is the fault of the sales team. Maybe they are not motivated enough, or perhaps they simply do not know enough about the product to sell it effectively. Other times, it is the fault of the management. They have not invested enough time and money into recruiting and training a high performing sales team, and therefore, their sales flounder. However, if you have a good and passionate sales team who are knowledgeable about your business, then the fault could lie with your chosen, or lack of, smart tools. So, let’s check out what sales tools you should be using in order to maximize your sales processes in 2020. Artificial intelligence sales assistants Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere, and for the uninitiated, it’s not going away anytime soon, so you need to get ready to embrace this highly effective technology, or risk being left behind in your specific industry. How can AI technology help your sales team? The question should be how can it not? AI has the ability to analyze customer data and provide you with invaluable insights into your existing and potential customers. Furthermore, it can:Close deals Generate new leadsDrive higher conversions Improve customer engagement Increase customer trust Predict future salesIdentify future customers Optimize pricing Plus, if you invest in this sales tool, your actual sales team will no longer have to spend hours cold calling, filling out long contact forms or scouring the media for new leads. Instead, they will be able to utilize their time more creatively and innovatively; designing new products or looking into emerging markets. Catering to the tech-savvy Gen ZIf you are not already aware of the buying power of Generation Z, or Gen Z, then you soon will be. This generation is even more tech-savvy than Millennials and their needs and demands are even greater. Couple that with the fact that by 2020, they are expected to form 40% of all customers worldwide, and you would be mad not to sit up and take notice of these influential shoppers. Typical traits of a Gen Z shopper include: Higher expectations Less patience Less price-conscious Easily distracted How can you ensure you are able to engage with Gen Z?You need to not only embrace but utilize effectively, all new technologies such as augmented reality and artificial intelligence. You need to ensure your brand stands out from the crowd and appeals to this specific generation; by updating the design of your website and looking into the best favicon generators to ensure that these buyers can locate your icon on their mobiles; their preferred device for making purchases by far! You need to communicate with them on issues that are relevant and important to them such as online security and substantiality. CRM solutions are essential However small your business, you should be using a CRM system to help streamline and organize your sales processes. Even if you are a start-up business, you should not be relying on spreadsheets for your sales team to track potential leads as this can be time-consuming, plus, there is more room for error. A CRM system can help your salespeople:Optimize their schedule Prioritize tasks Keep track of leadsKeep informed about your customersAutomate everyday tasksImprove data analysisWhat does all this mean for your sales team? Basically, they have a lot more time to spend actually engaging, interacting and of course, selling to existing and potential customers – which is their job after all. You don’t even have to spend any money as there are several free, high-quality CRM systems that can do the job perfectly well; for example, HubSpot and FreshSales. Although, in 2020 many businesses will be choosing to customize their CRM systems as much as possible in order to maximize their effectiveness.  Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Separatist threats against cable TV operators in Kashmir

We also urge the authorities to ensure that the equipment and premises of cable TV operators are protected.”The latest wave of threats began on 9 May when operators suspended four channels – Star Movie, Star World, AXN and Reality TV – as a result of pressure from a rebel group called the al Madina Regiment, which described them as “obscene.”Other militant groups visited the offices of operators in Srinagar over the next few days and threatened them, prompting them to suspend 40 stations on 10 May. They nonetheless resumed service the next day after receiving support from the police and certain organisations such as Hizbul Mujahideen, the leading militant group in Kashmir.Operators suspended service again on 12 May after being threatened with suicide attacks and after complaining that they were not getting enough police protection.After more than 150 media workers staged a demonstration against the threats in Srinagar on 13 May and several militant groups voiced support for the operators, distribution of most of the cable stations resumed yesterday.At least five journalists were injured in indiscriminate bombings by radical separatists last year, while 10 others were physically attacked by police.
