first_img Tags: Spillemyndigheden Two further reports from Spillemyndigheden confirmed that more men than women participate in online gambling overall, and that young men are asking for the most help when it comes to problem gambling. Number of Danish players self-excluding rises beyond 25,000 25th March 2021 | By Marese O’Hagan Licensing The report also revealed that 76% of those on the ROFUS register are men. The latter noted a link between young men suffering with problem gambling and beginning to gamble at an early age. StopSpillet, a helpline ran by the Danish Gambling Authority, found that out of a sample of 530 players with gambling problems, 450 had gambled before they turned 25.

Regions: Europe Denmarkcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The increase may be due to changes in Spillemyndigheden rules around marketing and ROFUS referral. On January 1 2020 it became mandatory for gaming operators to include ROFUS information in their marketing. A report from Denmark’s gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has revealed that the number of players joining the country’s Register of Voluntarily Excluded Players (ROFUS) had risen beyond 25,000 as of the end of 2020. With 21,586 players having self-excluded as of the end of 2019, 2020’s figure represented a 16.6% year-on-year increase.

I would like to express particular thanks to Kent County Cricket Club for so generously offering the use of their ground, and to those who are working hard to ensure the St Peter’s team enjoy a memorable tour. I also pray that the match will draw attention to the very serious problem of modern slavery and human trafficking, which our two churches are working closely together to combat through the work of the Global Freedom Network.”Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, said: “’If you want to arrive first, run alone. If you want to go far, walk together.’ For this sporting initiative I recall this Kenyan proverb, as it states so simply our need for teamwork, and with clear reference to the charitable aspect chosen, namely the issue of human trafficking, a plague which hurts most those who are left alone and abandoned. In our culture of massive movement of peoples, sport challenges us to examine not just how hospitable we are, as individual athletes, but also how similar we are, for as Jean Giraudoux affirms, “sport is the real esperanto of the peoples”. Look at the great success of the World Cup in Brazil! We do well to recall this in our pastoral work!”Read more about the match – including details of the squads – on the Pontifical Council for Culture website.

Their applications were approved by the PNG prime minister’s office within 24 hours but were then denied by the Immigration and Citizenship Service.A spokesperson for the Immigration and Citizenship Service subsequently told Fairfax that the foreign minister had banned “the issuance of visas to foreign media personnel until further notice.” Fairfax has appealed.Foreign minister Rimbink Pato cited national security when defending the temporary ban in an interview on 24 August, saying it would prevent misreporting that could be ‘‘misinterpreted.’’ There was “no need for the access” at the moment, he said, adding that eventually “everyone will be invited to come and see what we’ve achieved.” PNG was ranked 35th out of 179 countries in the 2011/2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.More information Papua New Guinea: Government minister calls for two reporters to be fired over Covid-19 coveragelast_img read more

The direction is passed in a petition filed by few nursing students impugning Government Order dated May 7, 2020, “mandatorily requiring” all final year students of government and private nursing educational institutions to report on campus. The Petitioners, appearing through Senior Advocate Anoop Trivedi and Advocates Abhinav Gaur and Vibhu Rai, had cited various health hazards associated with requiring physical presence of students. They had also drawn attention of the court towards order dated June 29, 2020, passed by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, extending the lock down. As per the said order inter-alia, all educational institutions are to remain closed till 31st July, 2020. AAG Manish Goel and Advocate Pankaj Rai, appearing for the State, however submitted that the decision to reopen the nursing courses was based upon a circular issued by the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, dated 16th June, 2020. It was further urged that nursing staff is otherwise required to meet the imminent need due to Covid 19 Pandemic. Emphasizing on the need to balance the interest of the nursing students and the requirement for medical staff, the court has issued notice and has posted the matter for hearing on July 8. The court has also asked the Petitioners to implead Union of India and the Indian Nursing Council, New Delhi, as parties so that they may also obtain instructions in the matter by the next date fixed.A similar petition was also mentioned before a division bench of the High Court comprised by Justice MK Gupta and Justice YK Srivastava. The bench has agreed to hear the petition mentioned by Advocate Shashank Shri Tripathi on an urgent basis. Accordingly, a special bench has been formed during the HC vacation period, to hear the matter on July 3. Case Details: Case Title: Narendra Kumar Singh & Ors. v. State of UP & Ors.

Ocean City Puts $1.75 Million In Place for Artificial Turf and Track

first_imgMore from Thursday’s City Council meeting:City Council Buys Time on Irrigation RequirementOcean City Gives Final OK to Bamboo BanMore coverage to be posted on Friday__________Sign up for OCNJ Daily’s free newsletter and breaking news alerts“Like” us on Facebook Ocean City will spend as much as $1.75 million to repair the track and install artificial turf at Carey Stadium, adjacent to Ocean City High School, near Sixth Street and Boardwalk.In a 6-1 vote Thursday, City Council gave final approval to an ordinance that authorizes funding $1.25 million to install an artificial turf field and to resurface the track at Carey Stadium.Another $500,000 is already in place for the project.The potential spending on the city-owned field that serves as home to Ocean City High School teams is part of a larger bond ordinance that calls for $1.44 million in appropriations and $1.36 million in borrowing. The proposed ordinance would include a $150,000 appropriation for purchase of two new Ocean City Fire Department trucks (another $675,000 is already in place) and a $35,000 appropriation for installation of a generator at the fire department’s 46th Street station.The property, located between Ocean City High School and the Ocean City Boardwalk between Fifth and Sixth streets, is owned and maintained by the City of Ocean City.If the ordinance passes, work on the track and field could begin later this fall and be ready for the spring sports seasons, according to Jim Mallon, assistant to Mayor Jay Gillian. Earlier this month, City Council approved advertising for bids from contractors to complete the job.In public comment, Wesley Avenue resident John Feairheller warned of the surprise costs and considerations of the project. He said he was the engineer for turf field projects in Atlantic City.He said the city should plan on five months of construction, the displacement of spring or fall sports and even the potential relocation of graduation. He said the city will need a staging area for a lot of dirt — the “carpet” of artificial turf sits on two feet of stone. The stone sits atop drainage that will need to be tied into existing outfall pipes, raising cost and capacity issues — “the numbers are always extra,” he said.Feairheller raised other issues. In track, javelin throws can’t pierce the turf field and discus tosses ding the material. Superstorm Sandy was not friendly to the fields in Atlantic City, he said.Feairheller said he doesn’t support or oppose the project. He just wanted the city to be aware of the potential costs.“I see no problem with putting the funding in place,” Councilman Mike DeVlieger said.Council members said the ordinance authorizes the spending but does not yet approve the work on the project.“We’ll do our homework along the way,” Council President Tony Wilson said.Councilman Pete Guinosso cast the dissenting vote.last_img read more
