The Gambling Commission of England, Scotland and Wales has set out a new framework designed to measure gambling harm among children and young people, while the regulator has also issued a reminder to operators that new rules for age and identity verification will come into force from next week.Developed by Ipsos MORI in collaboration with the Commission, Advisory Board for Safer Gambling and GambleAware, the framework aims to cover the various types of harm associated with gambling at young ages.The framework splits potential harm into four domains: health, relationships, development and finance. These areas, and the various issues that they cover, were established through a number of methods, with input from young people, professionals from the gambling industry and those with experience working with younger people.Opinions recorded during an expert workshop with industry professionals and youth workers, as well as information gathered during focus groups with young people, allowed Ipsos MORI to develop the questions. These will now be included its annual Young Person’s Omnibus, an annual survey of school age children across the UK. The results of this are expected later this year.Once data from the survey has been collected, the Commission and its partners will work together to see which questions are most effective for the monitoring of children and young people who are gambling. The regulator will put these questions to 11-16-year-olds on a yearly basis to help establish the level of gambling-related harm in this age group.The report comes after the Commission last week published its new National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms, with a focus on improving prevention and education efforts and enhancing treatment and support.“Gaining a better understanding of the impact of gambling on children and young people is a key priority for the Commission,” Helen Rhodes, programme director for safer gambling at the regulator, said.“This newly released framework will provide critical insight into the range of harms that young people in Britain can experience and will help greatly in concentrating the National Strategy’s prevention and education initiatives where they will have the most impact.”Clare Wyllie, director of research and evaluation at GambleAware, added: “This initial framework is designed to help guide and focus research and action to reduce gambling harms in children and young people. We encourage other researchers to build further evidence to develop the framework, so together we can move faster and go further to reduce gambling harms.”Meanwhile, the Commission has issued a reminder to licensees that new rules for age and identity verification procedures in online gaming will come into effect next week.From May 7, operators that have not yet verified the name, address and date of birth of any customer will need to have completed verification before allowing them to gamble.Operators are not permitted to confiscate a customer’s funds on the basis that they have not provided ID by May 7. Last year, the Competitions and Markets Authority ruled consumers are legally entitled to money they have deposited in their account, as well as winnings made with money they have deposited and gambled, and winnings from a bonus where relevant conditions have been met. 3rd May 2019 | By contenteditorlast_img read more

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Here’s how I’d find cheap shares to buy in a stock market crash Finding cheap shares to buy isn’t difficult at the moment. But choosing wisely is tricky. The coronavirus pandemic continues to plague both individuals and world economies.While UK death rates continue to rise and Covid-19 testing capacity is thin on the ground, uncertainty reins. And as the pandemic continues to spread with no vaccine in sight, the scale of the economic damage being done is not yet clear.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…All this has shaken the UK FTSE indices in recent weeks, but many analysts think there’s worse to come. If this is true, then we may find some of the UK’s best quality companies slipping into bargain territory. Existing shareholders don’t want their portfolios shrinking in value any further. But a crashing market can throw up a great opportunity for those looking to get started in stock market investing.Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has made several fortunes. Each time he found himself in a market crash, he offset any losses by making quality purchases in undervalued companies.Don’t forget to diversify!Warren Buffett’s advice on portfolio diversification can confuse beginners. While most investment advice advocates portfolio diversification, Buffett once said: “Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you are doing.”This is because, if you’ve done your homework and are investing in sectors you understand, random diversification shouldn’t be necessary.However, during a market crash, I think it’s apparent why diversification matters. The sectors most obviously hammered by the virus are airlines, travel and entertainment. If you’d only invested in these three sectors it could wipe your wealth out in one fell swoop. Likewise, if you were solely invested in oil, you’d be in trouble as oil majors sink under the weight of the crashing oil price.I understand Buffett’s viewpoint on diversification. But I think it’s important that beginners don’t put all their eggs in one basket. Many different sectors are easily available for investors to buy, so it’s easy to created a diversified and balanced portfolio. The world’s eye is on pharmaceuticals, for instance, as we wait with bated breath for whispers of a vaccine or miracle drug to crush the coronavirus. Meanwhile, as global tensions rise, defence is a sector I think could be gearing up for future growth. These are both sectors I’d consider adding to a diversified portfolio. Overvalued to undervaluedSome of the UK’s best-loved FTSE 100 companies still have a high price-to-earnings ratio. So consumers may be misplacing their confidence in share prices higher than they’re worth.Sometimes a market correction is necessary to bring overvalued shares back to earth. That means not only to a realistically valued state, but to an undervalued one. At this point, overpriced stocks become cheap shares to buy.I think a market crash is a great time for beginners and seasoned investors to do their homework. Carefully research the companies you’re interested in. Then you can confidently buy shares in quality businesses when they’re at bargain prices. After that, just wait for confidence (and dividends) to return and watch their prices rise.  Kirsteen Mackay | Saturday, 11th April, 2020 Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Since the beginning of December, the price of Bitcoin has doubled. This performance has resulted in a wave of new interest in the cryptocurrency with the number of online searches for ‘how to buy Bitcoin’ jumping. Some analysts believe this could be just the start of the crypto asset’s growth. Price targets of as much as $146k have been touted on Wall Street. That suggests the price of Bitcoin could rise a further 300% from current levels. 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…While this potential return might seem highly attractive, I’m not convinced. I’d rather own UK shares instead. But this doesn’t mean sacrificing returns. Indeed, there are at least five shares I believe have the potential to double or even triple investors’ money in the near term. Better than BitcoinMany UK shares are currently trading at discounted valuations. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the travel and tourism sector. Companies such as IAG, easyJet, and Carnival are all trading at significant discounts to their 2019 valuations. Clearly, these UK shares are facing some severe headwinds. The pandemic has bought their businesses to a complete halt.Nevertheless, green shoots are slowly beginning to appear. What’s more, all of these firms have strengthened their balance sheets over the past year. This time last year, there were some real concerns that these companies wouldn’t make it through the pandemic. Now we know they can.Both IAG and easyJet have raised billions by leasing planes and increasing borrowing. Meanwhile, Carnival has been able to strengthen its financial position by selling shares and issuing bonds. As the firm entered the crisis with a relatively healthy balance sheet, investors have been happy to provide the extra cash. As vaccinations help the world return to normal, I think these businesses will be able to start the recovery process in 2021. As earnings recover, their stock prices could follow suit, and the UK shares may outperform Bitcoin as this happens. UK shares to buy Two other companies I’d buy to double my money are BT and Natwest. These UK shares have suffered from depressed investor sentiment over the past year. However, on an underlying fundamental basis, both businesses have been pushing ahead over the past year.As such, I think the disconnect between what the market thinks these companies are worth to what they’re actually worth has grown significantly. To put it another way, I reckon these stocks now offer a wide margin of safety for investors, which suggests to me they could produce large total returns for shareholders in the years ahead.Unlike Bitcoin, both businesses produce tangible products and services, which should remain in demand no matter what the future holds for the UK economy. BT, in particular, provides a vital service for millions of customers around the country.Indeed, without the group’s telecoms infrastructure, customers would find it difficult to trade Bitcoin in the first place. That’s why I’d buy these two UK shares for income and capital growth over Bitcoin any day. Forget Bitcoin!

first_imgAllen against Ashton during the 2011 Premiership semi-final2006: Carter evades Allen to score a try during the Autumn InternationalsHe may be mature, he may be sensible, he may be known as the wise old head of the Leicester midfield, but Anthony Allen is keen to point out that he’s only 24. This, it seems, is something that the outside world, and even some of his team-mates, can struggle to come to terms with.“I suppose I’ve been around for a while now,” he says, with a rueful grin. “But it’s still a bit strange. I’ve been here at Leicester two years now and some of the lads still say, ‘Are you really only 24?’ It’s weird.”The reason that Allen has to endure these misconceptions, the reason that he has “been around for a while”, is the two International appearances that thrust him prematurely to prominence as long ago as 2006. A couple of months after he had turned 20 and little more than a year since making his senior debut for Gloucester, Allen was chosen by Andy Robinson, then England coach, to play at centre against New Zealand and Argentina. He was then discarded and is still waiting for a third cap, but his career has been revived by his move to the Tigers. One of their most consistent performers this season, he won the Players’ Player of the Year award and has put himself firmly in the frame for a place in Martin Johnson’s World Cup squad. At 24, Allen is a little young to be seen as a has-been.After a season of otherwise fleet-footed progress, England have remained stuck in the slow lane as far as their centres are concerned. More charitably, they have kept faith with the balance of a side that favours heavy goods vehicles such as Shontayne Hape and Mike Tindall in midfield, rather than sleeker, more creative models. It is this lack of creativity that troubles many supporters, concerned that England may lack the skill in midfield to bring the firepower of Chris Ashton, Ben Foden and Mark Cueto into play.Allen is not a flashy player – the paeans usually include worthy adjectives such as reliable, consistent and hard-working – but he has quicker feet than England’s incumbent centres and, crucially, much better distribution skills. Matt O’Connor, Leicester’s Australian head coach, has become a fervent fan, saying: “I’d pick him for England at 12 because of his ability to use his feet, to communicate and to distribute. Defensively he’s outstanding too. There’s no doubt he’ll get another crack at Test level. I’d like to see him in that role with four or five Tests under his belt so that he can show his wares.”But does Allen possess enough physical presence to persuade Johnson that he wouldn’t be leaving England underpowered in midfield against, say, Sonny Bill Williams or Jamie Roberts? The talk is of centres being in the 100kg club nowadays and, at 91kg (14st 5lb), Allen is around 10kg lighter than Hape and Tindall. “You’re always trying to get stronger, but I’m happy with how I am,” says Allen. “I’ve developed a lot strength-wise in the last couple of years and I feel I can hold my own with anyone now.”Almost five years on from his Test debut, Allen readily concedes that he wasn’t able to hold his own as a callow 20-year-old.He was thrown into an England team that had lost its previous five matches, to play against an All Black side showing its habitual menace the year before a World Cup. It was not a gentle introduction to international rugby. He started well, making a break that led to England’s first try, but then delayed a pass that gave Joe Rokocoko a 55-metre interception try. Later, he was handed off dismissively (right) as Dan Carter scored in the All Blacks’ 41-20 victory. Six days later, England suffered a humiliating 25-18 defeat to Argentina.“It’s a shame that it happened when it did,” says Allen. “I don’t think I was ready. I suppose you don’t really know that until you’re put into that environment, but it was definitely too early. If I was chucked in now, I’d be way more prepared.” Allen was not the only centre whose longer-term potential was jeopardised by premature selection under Robinson. The year before, Mathew Tait had been chosen to face Wales the day before his 19th birthday, something he took a while to recover from. Next season, the two players’ roads to redemption will converge as Tait joins Leicester from Sale. “Mat’s done well since that difficult start,” says Allen. “He’s bounced back from the disappointments and won 30-odd caps. That’s something for me to aim at. He’ll be an asset to the club at Leicester.”It seems unlikely that Allen will remain a two-cap wonder for much longer. For the World Cup warm-up matches against Wales and Ireland in August, Johnson will surely shuffle his midfield options to see what a more creative player can add to England’s game. Those adjectives used to describe Allen – reliable, consistent, hard-working – are qualities prized by the England manager.If Allen doesn’t make it this year, he will still be around for the World Cup on home soil in 2015, when he should be somewhere near his prime. Even in 2019, Allen will only be the same age as Tindall is now. He is only 24, remember.Check out his try versus Bath that was voted the 2011 Try of the Season at the Leicester Tigers Supporters End of Season Awards.This article appeared in the July 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad?

first_imgWednesday Oct 31, 2012 Western Province beat the Sharks to win dramatic 2012 Currie Cup Final Western Province upset the Sharks with a well deserved 25-18 victory in a dramatic Currie Cup Final at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday. It was their first title since 2001, and came about through some gutsy play and well taken opportunities. Earlier in the week you saw Juan De Jongh’s fantastic effort, the only try of the game, so here is a look at some of the other moments of what was a great final, that went right down to the wire.The Sharks got off to a good start as Patrick Lambie kicked the points on offer, giving them a 12-3 lead before Western Province came back through De Jongh.Late in the second half young Province flyhalf came into his own as he slotted two drop goals, one shortly after another. The second was an unbelievable effort that was taken with his wrong foot, and only just scraped over the uprights. With time almost up the Sharks managed to win a penalty 95m out and launch an attack from deep that almost paid off, if it were not for a superb bit of defending from fullback Joe Pietersen.The Sharks created a 2-on-1 for Louis Ludik and with Charl McLeod ranging up in support, he chose to make the pass. Fullback Joe Pietersen read it beautifully though and pounced on McLeod, snuffing out the opportunity. The ball got knocked on a dramatic late try was prevented.The Sharks had another opportunity to attack well into extra time, but after many phases of play and some great defence from Western Province, they coughed up the ball.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Save this picture!© Esaú AcostaThe opportunities come up of the negotiation among the architects and the developer to get the appropriate strategies. For us, the island is a field of autonomous and self-regenerating cells as a city made out of houses; territoriality turned urbanity; that is its scale,  … we call it terrurbanity.
