Veikkaus admits failings over age control measures

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus has pledged to enhance its age controls after an investigation by the National Board of Police identified a number of shortcomings with its current measures. Topics: Casino & games Strategy Slots Regions: Europe Nordics Finland Email Address Finnish gambling monopoly Veikkaus has pledged to enhance its age controls after an investigation by the National Board of Police identified a number of shortcomings with its current measures.The investigation took place during the spring, with the Police Board conducting checks across the Veikkaus retail network in Finland. This saw secret shoppers pose as underage players in its venues.Veikkaus currently only permits players over the age of 18 to gamble and has in place a system where its staff must challenge a customer’s age if they do not look old enough.However, the Police Board found that only 16% of its test customers were asked to prove their age at Veikkaus agency points and play centres, while 40% were questioned at gaming halls and Feel Vegas’ locations.“The results show that we are failing in our age limit controls; we should have been able to achieve a much better result than this,” Veikkaus’ director of responsibility Jarmo Kumpulainen said. “Our games are for adults. Our activities in age limit control have not been sufficient so far. We have now taken immediate action to remedy this.”In response, Veikkaus has announced a series of new measures to clamp down on underage gambling.Going forward, should underage player be allowed to gamble, Veikkaus will shut down slot machines at the location for five days and monitor the site for one month. Should further underage gambling take place, Veikkaus would then remove the slot machines entirelyThis will be supported by the previously announced introduction of mandatory identification checks for slot machines in retail outlets from January 2021, something Veikkaus said would make it more difficult for underage players to access the machines.In addition, Veikkaus proposed the formation of a new organisation to oversee the implementation of age controls in the country, as part of Finland’s revised Lotteries Act. This, the operator said, could be in the form of a public authority that would have similar powers to bodies that govern products such as alcohol.“Veikkaus will immediately start negotiations on the changes with key industry organisations and partners, with the aim of introducing new underage gambling controls across its sales network during the second half of the year,” Kumpulainen said.“Point-of-sale staff will be instructed and trained in new practices. New verified findings will result in sanctions. Age limit controls will also be supported by developing the skills of retailers through courses and training.”Late last year, Veikkaus set out a host of new responsible gambling measures as part of an effort to help protect players from gambling-related harms.These included reducing the overall number of slot machines it operates by 3,500, as well as amending its marketing strategy to focus more on promoting responsible gambling and the mandatory identification checks on slot machines.However, Veikkaus last month vowed to increase the number of slot machines it will take offline, saying 8,000 terminals will be withdrawn before the end of the year. This means that by the start of 2021, Veikkaus will have cut its retail slots network by 40% compared to January 2020.

Why I’m backing this FTSE 250 stock to continue its recovery post-Covid

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Shares in the FTSE 250’s electricals retailer Dixons Carphone (LSE:DC) have charged over 15% higher to 140p over the last month at the time of writing, as locked-down consumers keep themselves entertained on their games consoles and TVs at home.It’s been quite a recovery for the group whose shares closed at 136.65p on January 5th, 2020 before plunging to just 62.10p on April 19th just a few short months later, as the pandemic shuttered its UK high street and travel stores.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…Despite further lockdowns across its 16 markets – including Denmark and Ireland – the group’s online business has kept sales rocketing. In its most recent market update it revealed a 11% growth in group electricals revenues in the 10 weeks to January 9th 2021, with UK online sales soaring 121%.It also hailed an increase in online market share helped by innovations such as ShopLive, which allows shoppers to have a video call with staff and see product demonstrations.Why I’m bullishI believe that sales for the FTSE 250 firm will keep rising as the online shopping boom continues and its stores, fingers crossed, re-open in the UK on April 12th.A public still denied the chance to sit inside a pub or cinema will continue to seek their entertainment indoors, especially with a ‘Summer of Sport’ ahead.I see shoppers flocking to or going online to buy large Dixons Carphone TVs to watch the return of the Wimbledon tennis tournament and the delayed Euro 2020.But the biggest driver of the share price in my view could be the UK Government clamping down on waste to meet environmental targets.The UK generates around 1.5 million tonnes of electrical waste every year, and the Government hopes that a new Right for Repair law this Summer will help tackle the problem.For the first time, electronic manufacturers will have to make spare parts available to help consumers fix broken-down technology, potentially increasing their life span by 10 years.Consumers will not be expected to get underneath the machinery and fix it with their own screwdrivers and multiple swear words!They, I believe, will turn to FTSE 250 constituent Dixons Carphone whose Knowhow Repair Lab is the biggest electricals repair centre in Europe. Through its National Recycling facility and partnerships with Reuse charities helping low-income households it has a clear ‘green’ lead over rivals such as Amazon.The law could lead to fewer electrical goods being sold but I think growing repair demand will more than offset this.Risks to considerThere are a few issues, however, that might stop me buying Dixons Carphone shares. The re-opening of society might see shoppers abandon their in-home entertainment systems and spend more time and money outdoors.Another risk could be rival Amazon opening electricals-only stores. It has done it with food, so why not laptops?I also fear that another annual statutory pre-tax loss on June 30, after two successive years in the red, could see Dixons Carphone’s price reverse.However, online growth, store re-openings and its green leadership should help the FTSE 250 company to continue prospering. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Day 2: March arrives in D.C., sets new goals for struggle

first_imgMay 1 Coalition contingent. Washington, D.C. — The second day of the Poor People’s March for Jobs and Justice, May 12, began with excitement as women from the National Coalition of Leaders to Save Section 5 (of the Voting Rights Act), who drove from Selma, Ala., took the lead of the march with other women on Mothers’ Day. It was Coretta Scott King who led the first poor people’s campaign on Mothers’ Day 45 years ago.A handful of marchers who had elected to walk through the night joined the larger group to applause for their high spirits. Everyone marched the last 10-mile segment of the 41-mile trek from Baltimore to Washington, D.C.At the Justice Department, demonstrators defied police to express their outrage at two critical issues: police terror and defending voting rights. Jeralynn Blueford, mother of murdered Alan Blueford, gave an impassioned plea to lock up killer police. Dr. Charles Steele, national CEO of SCLC Southern Christian Leadership Conference, proclaimed that we have to return to the days of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “We must be prepared to sit in, go to jail or even lay down our lives for the cause of freedom.”At a rally at Freedom Plaza in the center of Washington, Bob Ross, president of the Prince Georges County NAACP and a major organizer of the two-day commemoration, spoke. Ross is currently leading major anti-police brutality struggles. Two veterans of the original 1968 Poor People’s March Luis Zapata and Carlos Duffley, who also represented a representative of the People’s Organization for Progress, gave greetings to the rally. Bianey Elias, of Good Jobs for D.C., spoke in Spanish about the rights of low-wage workers. Speakers included three representatives of Peace House.President Bill Preston, of American Federation of Government Employees Local 17, gripped the audience as he expressed the solidarity of union workers — some of whom, he said, live in poverty despite holding jobs — with the poor people on the march. Joe Lombardo, a spokesperson for the United National Antiwar Coalition, addressed the crowd. Cultural artists Luci Murphy, Eric Sheptock and Pam Parker sang songs of struggle. The Rev. C. D. Witherspoon chaired, and Larry Holmes, a People’s Power Assembly Movement organizer, spoke, as did some of those who had marched the entire 41 miles.What’s nextFollowing the rally, marchers convened a People’s ­Power Assembly to strategize future steps. Larry Hales, of the PPA movement, opened the session calling for a moment of silence in recognition of Malcolm X’s grandson, Malcolm Shabazz, who was murdered in Mexico after being under FBI surveillance for the last two years.Rev. Witherspoon. co-chair of the session, discussed epidemic police terror throughout this country. He proposed a multiprong strategy, calling for a national tribunal where victims could directly tell their stories. This campaign includes a call for congressional hearings to demand indicting killer police and community control.Sharon Black, co-chair of the session, summed up some of the other proposals. OUR Walmart workers had introduced a proposal the previous day in Baltimore for an occupation of Walmart headquarters on June 7 in Bentonville, Ark. This was a logical extension of the justice for low-wage workers campaign mandated by the Baltimore PPA on Dec. 15.Black also called for holding PPAs across the country to realize the dream that Dr. King first proposed as part of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign: to take the campaign from symbolism to direct action, to go to Washington and stay until justice is won. The body also discussed supporting actions to mark the 50-year anniversary on Aug. 28 of the 1963 Jobs and Freedom march.March organizers planned to support actions by local activists fighting for a living wage bill in Washington, D.C., on May 13.March greeted enthusiasticallyWorkers World newspaper, which published a special issue focused on the Poor People’s March, organized a distribution to people attending the weekend events. Responding positively to the newspaper as honestly telling their story, marchers helped distribute papers to others walking with them and to people on the streets watching their progress.Participants noted that not only in the poor, mostly Black neighborhoods of Baltimore, but in working-class, mostly white, neighborhoods on the way to central Washington, people in their homes and on the sidewalks greeted the marchers enthusiastically, with clapping and cheering.One person who witnessed the march wrote an email to PPM organizers on May 11: “I didn’t know this was happening and found out about the event this evening driving down Rt. 1 in Howard County where I saw the walkers. I wish I had known about this previously so that I could have provided more support. I was moved when I saw the walkers, honked my horn and gave them a thumbs-up. Wish I could have done more.”At this time in the United States, a groundswell of solidarity with the poor could be seen on the route from Baltimore to Washington, D.C.WW photos: Brenda RyanFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Boston activists, Alberto Barreto, Fred Floreal in Baltimore.

By learning about the Civil War and circumstances surrounding it, they will understand why it is so important that history not repeat itself.” GRAND OPENING: Neighborhood Barre ribbon cutting Neighborhood Barre had their official ribbon cutting today on the Downtown Square.

We really appreciate Office Johnson for his interest and involvement,” Jackson said.As the visiting students came through the Wax Museum, they pushed the buttons that activated the “wax” figures.

However, Austin and Jayden said Cody was a member of the Pony Express and served as a scout for the Union Army during the last years of the Civil War. There was little doubt about the role Harriet Tubman played in the Civil War.“She worked with the underground railroad to get slaves to a safe place,” said ShaNiyah Williams. “She was brave and helped a lot of slaves get free.”Rowdy Yates portrayed General U.S. Grant who was a great general but said he would have rather portrayed his favorite U.S. president, Abraham Lincoln. But he liked getting to carry a sword and a pocketknife.Kaidyn Hazel, who portrayed Mary Todd Lincoln, said she found the lady Lincoln to be inspirational.“She set up the president’s widows’ pension and did a lot of other things for women,” she said. For Emily Hussey, learning more about Elizabeth Cady Stanton helped her realize the struggle women had in order to gain the rights they have as women.“The Wax Museum was a great learning experience for our sixth graders,” Jackson said. “They learned a lot and were able to pass what they learned on to the other students. They did a great job and we are proud of them.”last_img read more

Shooter who allegedly killed two at KY Kroger charged with hate crime

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky.) — The man who allegedly opened fire at a Kroger grocery store in October, killing two people, is now facing hate crime charges.Investigators announced a grand jury returned hate crime charges against Gregory Bush, 51, who allegedly shot and killed a black man and woman at the Jeffersontown, Kentucky, store on Oct. 24.A grand jury returned a six-count indictment against the accused shooter, including two counts of shooting and killing two victims based on their race, one count of attempting to shoot a victim based on race and three firearm counts based on its use in support of the previous charges.Vickie Jones, 67, and Maurice Stallard, 69, were both killed when the suspect began shooting indiscriminately in the store and then outside. Stallard was shot inside the store, while Jones was gunned down just outside the entrance, police said.Police said that just prior to the killings at the Kroger store, Bush was spotted on security footage outside the First Baptist Church, a historically black church in Jeffersontown. After he was unable to get inside, he allegedly went to the Kroger store and opened fire.Federal authorities launched a probe into whether Bush should be charged with hate crimes on Nov. 1.United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman, FBI Special-Agent-in-Charge Robert Brown and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special-Agent-in-Charge Stuart Lowrey were present at the news conference on Thursday. They said at the news conference Bush has maintained his innocence.“No Kentuckian should be frightened to go shopping, no Kentuckian should be frightened to worship, no Kentuckian should be frightened to go to school,” Coleman said. “There is no place for hate-filled violence in this community.”Bush was arraigned on two counts of murder, one count of criminal attempted murder and three counts of wanton endangerment in October.He pleaded not guilty to the original charges last month.Prosecutors have not said whether they will seek the death penalty in the case, though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he would support it if Bush is convicted, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.Bush’s next court date is set for Jan. 15.
