Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance Danish gaming leader Danske Spil has issued a 10-point plan to improve player protection standards in the market, after claiming current rules are inadequate.The state-owned operator said the gaming market in Denmark is one of the best regulated in the world, but contended that current rules “do not adequately protect vulnerable players and minors”.It cited figures from the country’s regulator, Spillemyndigheden, which shows a 35% increase in self-exclusions between 2017 and 2019, as evidence that rules need to be tightened.Danske Spil has made 10 specific suggestions on how rules could be changed, with most relating to marketing.It wants to see the prohibition of advertising during live sports on television and no casino commercials on TV. Commercials for payday loans and gambling products should not be broadcast in the same advertising windows, it continued, while the use of celebrities to promote real-money gaming should be prohibited. Danske Spil wants a ban on game bonuses, and prohibition of VIP programs and affiliate partners. It also wants mandatory ID verification for betting shops introduced – which it will introduce in its own properties this year – as well as mandatory loss limits.“It is in everyone’s interest that we have a gaming market where gaming remains the entertainment it should be,” said Susanne Mørch Koch, the chief executive of Danske Spil.“And although we, as a gambling provider, have a large number of fences to prevent and protect vulnerable players, we unfortunately find that today there are too many who fall through the protection network that has been set up.“Therefore, we believe it is necessary to tighten the net and regulate the gaming market further. And in order for it to work, it requires the same rules for all gaming providers in Denmark.”Earlier this month, Spillemyndigheden revealed that its problem gambling helpline received 722 calls during its first full year of operation, more than initially expected.

Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. 2020 has been a year to forget for many dividend investors. Around half of all FTSE 100 companies have postponed, reduced, or axed shareholder payouts as they responded to the threat of Covid-19. The reductions continue to come thick and fast too as UK shares of all shapes and sizes move to protect their balance sheets.The brutal scale of dividend declines is laid bare by a fresh study from Janus Henderson just released. This shows global dividends fell 22% on a headline basis (including special dividends) in Q2, to $382.2bn. This was the worst quarterly drop since records began almost a decade ago. And things have been particularly bad for owners of UK shares. According to the report, dividends from London-listed companies plummeted 54% on a headline basis during the second quarter.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…3 UK shares I’d buy todayBut don’t get too down in the dumps. Many UK shares have continued to pay big dividends to their shareholders despite the Covid-19 crisis. Many even kept lifting payouts despite the severe global downturn. We at The Motley Fool believe the recent stock market crash provides great opportunity to buy some quality dividend-paying UK shares at rock-bottom prices. And here are a few on my personal watchlist.While other UK shares have been slashing dividends, Centamin has supercharged shareholder payouts. The interim dividend was raised 50% earlier this month on the back of the surging gold price. And City analysts expect payouts to keep rising over the next couple of years. Therefore the miner sports meaty dividends of 5.2% and 5.3% for 2020 and 2021 respectively. Centamin’s attractive forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 15 times provides another reason to buy it today too.GlaxoSmithKline meanwhile is tipped by the number crunchers to keep its policy of paying annual dividends of 80p. This shouldn’t come as a surprise of course as drugs makers are some of the most reliable earnings generators out there. As a result, the FTSE 100 company sports 5.2% through to the end of next year. Happily a low P/E ratio of 13 times for 2020 sweetens the investment case.FTSE 100 giant Legal & General Group boasts an incredible P/E multiple of just 8 times. But unlike Glaxo, City brokers expect the dividend to rise in 2020, creating a stunning 8% yield. The insurer has a formidable balance sheet to allow it to continue paying gigantic dividends, with £7.3bn worth of surplus regulatory capital and a £3.5bn credit default reserve on its books. It’s well placed to weather the economic downturn and keep raising payouts in 2021.Getting rich after the stock market crashThese are just a taster of some of the great value UK shares I’m thinking of buying right now. In truth there are plenty of dividend-paying stocks that are too good to miss after the stock market crash. And The Motley Fool’s vast library of special reports can help you dig them out and get rich in the process. Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended GlaxoSmithKline.

Bradley Davies makes a break through Edinburgh’s defence during last week’s Heineken cup clashBaber and Burnell make one change to team following 25-8 win over EdinburghWith Cardiff Blues having recorded their six successive win over Edinburgh last Friday, the Blues make one change for their Round 4 Heineken Cup match against Edinburgh this Friday, 16 December, 8.00pm kick off at Murrayfield.Winger Alex Cuthbert is out with a minor hamstring injury and is replaced by Gavin Evans, with Dafydd Hewitt moving onto the bench.Twenty points from the boot of Dan Parks and a well taken Alex Cuthbert try secured the win for the Blues, who now sit at the top of Pool 2 with 12 points, having recorded three wins from three so far in the tournament. The Blues did the double over Edinburgh in last season’s competition with an 18-17 home win and a 21-14 victory on the road, but Blues backs coach Gareth Baber is taking nothing for granted this Friday.“Obviously it’s good to try to stick to a side that’s winning and keep that momentum going,” said Baber. “Alex Cuthbert had to withdraw with a niggling hamstring injury picked up against Edinburgh last Friday. He trained on Tuesday and had physio on it, but it’s not quite right.” CARDIFF, WALES – DECEMBER 09: Bradley Davies of Cardiff makes a break during the Heineken Cup Pool Two match between Cardiff Blues and Edinburgh at the Cardiff City Stadium on December 9, 2011 in Cardiff, Wales. (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images) “Last Friday’s win was crucial, but we have to back up that performance in Murrayfield on Friday. They are all big games in the Heineken Cup as we aim at moving to the knockout stages. London Irish picked up a win last weekend against Racing Metro and are still in it, so there’s a long way to go and we are not taking anything for granted.”Starting XV15 Leigh Halfpenny14 Gavin Evans13 Casey Laulala12 Jamie Roberts11 Chris Czekaj10 Dan Parks9 Lloyd Williams8 Xavier Rush7 Sam Warburton6 Michael Paterson5 Paul Tito (c)4 Bradley Davies3 Taufa’ao Filise2 T Rhys Thomas1 Gethin Jenkins LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Replacements:16 Ryan Tyrell17 John Yapp18 Scott Andrews19 Josh Navidi20 Maama Molitika21 Richie Rees22 Ceri Sweeney23 Dafydd HewittNot available due to injuryAlex Cuthbert – hamstringJames Down – ankleAndries Pretorius – kneeDeiniol Jones – shoulderMartyn Williams – armKristian Dacey – shoulder

2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Organisation Follow the news on Brazil April 15, 2021 Find out more Reports Reporters Without Borders urges the police to quickly find and question the leading suspect in the murder of Walter Lessa de Oliveira, a cameraman employed by the Alagoas state assembly’s TV station, who was gunned down in Maceió on 5 January. The organisation also hopes the authorities quickly deal with an alarming crime wave in Alagoas. Help by sharing this information January 9, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Public TV cameraman gunned down in Alagoas state, revenge killing by drug trafficker suspected BrazilAmericas RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Receive email alerts News BrazilAmericas RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out more News May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is appalled by the murder of TV cameraman Walter Lessa de Oliveira on 5 January in Maceió, the capital of the northeastern state of Alagoas, amid a disturbing crime wave in the city. Witnesses say he was gunned down by a drug trafficker and revenge appears to be the most likely motive.“Brazil’s northeast continues to be a high-risk region for journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “Without trying to anticipate the results of the investigation, we think it quite plausible that this was an act of revenge by a drug trafficker, especially as organised crime is so active there. We hope the leading suspect will be quickly found and questioned. We also hope that the alarming security situation in Alagoas will be quickly resolved.”Aged 53 and employed by TV Assembléia, a public TV service operated by the Alagoas state assembly, Lessa was gunned down while at a bus stop on the outskirts of Maceió. Citing several witnesses, the police have identified a drug trafficker known by the nickname of “Aranha” (Spider) as the killer. “Aranha” allegedly pulled up in a car alongside Lessa and fired four shots at him. Hit in the head, Lessa died immediately.The most plausible theory is that the shooting was in revenge for the fact Lessa had in the past filmed footage of “Aranha” that was shown on state television. An alternative theory that has been suggested is that Lessa was shot while resisting an attempted robbery, but this is not supported by the witness statements taken by the police, and nothing was stolen from him.Born near Rio de Janeiro, Lessa used to head the Alagoas Union of Professional Journalists and worked for TV Gazeta for more than 20 years. Of late, he had worked for the Maceió Centre for Higher Education as well as TV Assembléia. His death came amid a surge in armed crime in Maceió in which a total of 16 people were murdered in the city from 5 to 7 January. The state police have been on strike for five months for more pay and the authorities seem powerless to deal with the crime wave. Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil News to go further

City Council to Discuss the Possibility on Monday Guitar virtuoso grew up in Pasadena By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 | 3:37 pm CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday More Cool Stuff Subscribe Business News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Eddie Van Halen Photo courtesy Randa Schmalfeld and Julie KimuraPlans for a memorial honoring guitar great and former Pasadena resident Eddie Van Halen will go before the City Council on Monday.City Public Information Officer Lisa Derderian confirmed the item would appear on Monday’s agenda, but said additional information was not yet available.Van Halen died Oct. 6 after a battle with cancer.Pasadena residents Randa Schmalfeld and Julie Kimura have raised $5,200 through the online fundraising platform gofundme.com in hopes of having a street or alley named in honor of the rock star, who they call “Pasadena’s own guitar hero.”The donations have exceeded their $3,000 goal.“We are delighted that the City Council is moving so quickly to consider a dedicated public space here in Van Halen’s hometown,” said Schmalfeld. “We envision a place where fans can forever honor and celebrate the brilliance of Eddie Van Halen and the phenomenal success of Pasadena’s Hometown Band. The overwhelmingly positive response to our campaign demonstrates the desire of our community to honor Eddie and his bandmates. We are hopeful that the council will decide in our favor and we are looking forward to next steps in forever honoring Pasadena’s favorite Rock Stars!”Last week, Shmalfled said the surplus money raised in the campaign will be donated to music programs at Pasadena High School.City Councilmember-elect Felicia Williams, who will join the council in December, has also talked to staff about naming an alley after Van Halen.“This is not just a tribute to an amazing musician. It is also a chance to hear the cultural story about the Van Halen brothers and their experience in the U.S. and PUSD. It is an inspiration for us to embrace our differences and encourage success in all of us,” Williams told Pasadena Now.Van Halen was born in 1955 to Jan Van Halen, a jazz pianist, clarinetist, and saxophonist, and Eugenia Van Halen, who was from Indonesia, formerly known as the Dutch East Indies. The Van Halen family moved to Pasadena in 1962. But when they arrived in Pasadena, Eddie and his brother Alex faced racism because they were mixed-race children and spoke little English.In a 2017 interview with Smithsonian Magazine, Eddie Van Halen remembered his first friends in America were Black and protected him from white kids who would tear up his homework and make him eat playground sand.Despite those experiences, he said he was grateful for his experience as an immigrant.After graduating from PHS, Eddie and Alex attended Pasadena City College, where Eddie met David Lee Roth, who graduated from John Muir High School. The two started a group called Broken Comb before adopting the name Mammoth. Mammoth performed in the early 1970s on the Sexson Auditorium stage at PCC.According to a 2018 Pasadena Now article written by Michelle Nati, the Van Halen brothers honed their sound at backyard parties and high school dances in the Crown City before making their way to the Sunset Strip, and later being signed by Warner Bros.After the band hit the big time, Eddie Van Halen would play with his back to the audience to deal with his stage fright, and because he was worried other guitarists would steal his techniques. 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Make a comment EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Top of the News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena
