first_imgIf the warnings prove insufficient, the regulator said serious violations such as this may result in gaming licences being revoked. Reviews of a sample customer’s account found that Casinstugan had issued a player with a total SEK21,000 in bonus funds, in addition to free spins for online slots. Spelinspektionen’s interpretation of anti-bonusing regulations was clarified in June 2019 when Betsson’s NGG Nordic subsidiary and PlayOjo operator SkillOnNet were found to be in violation of the rules. 17th February 2021 | By Conor Mulheir The Swedish Gaming Authority, Spelinspektionen, has issued four ComeOn-owned brands with warnings and penalty fees for, among other things, unauthorised bonus offers. Tags: Spelinspektionen ComeOn Hajper Ltd Snabbare Ltd Casinostugan ComeOn was also found to have deposited a total of SEK40,000 to a sample player in bonus funds. As all violations were similar, the differences in fees paid in this case depended largely on turnover. Spelinspektionen issues penalty fees to four ComeOn brands for bonus violations A review of one of Hajper’s customer accounts found the player had been given SEK7,400 in bonus funds by the operator, as well as free bets. A second customer received SEK13,500 from Hajper in addition to free spins. Snabbare Ltd was found to have deposited SEK6,950 to a customer’s account in bonus funds, and to have offered free spins to another player. NGG Nordic was ordered to pay a penalty fee of SEK19m, while SkillOnNet was issued with a SEK14m fee. NGG Nordic’s fee was subsequently reduced to SEK14m after Betsson appealed the decision. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img According to Swedish regulations, gaming operators may only offer their customers a bonus at their first gaming opportunity, however Spelinspektionen found that these four operators had breached the legislation by offering bonuses on repeated occasions. Casinostugan was given a warning and penalty fee of SEK25m (£2.16m/€2.49m/$3.00m). ComeOn Sweden received a SEK35m penalty fee in addition to its warning, while Hajper Ltd was issued with a warning and sanction fee of SEK50m. Snabbare Ltd paid the largest fee of SEK65m in addition to its warning. Regions: Sweden The authority also said it believes that by distributing gifts to vulnerable players, the companies have breached their duty of care in relation to those players. An inspection of licensees carried out last autumn found that operators in the jurisdiction must to more to provider responsible information about gambling-related harm, and links to Swedish self-exclusion scheme Spelpaus, on their websites. Spelinspektionen said when the findings were released that further work was required from operators to prevent regulatory intervention. Earlier this month, Spelinspektionen issued its 100th online gambling licence since Sweden launched its regulated online market in January 2019. Topics: Legal & compliance Compliance Legal Regulation According to Spelinspektionen, the size of the penalty fees depends on how serious the regulatory violation is and how long it lasted, as well as operator turnover.

Pizey assumed her goal was to find a mission partner for St. John’s “and that my being a doctor had nothing to do with any of this.”While in Haiti she met Carmel Valdema, a public health nurse who runs nutrition clinics for children aged six months to four years at each of the parishes pastored by her husband, the Rev. Fritz Valdema, of the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti.Pizey, a pediatrician, went to the clinic in Crochu and was stunned to learn that the 200 families with their malnourished children never received any actual medical care.“It just came out of my mouth: ‘I’m coming back to help you,’” Pizey recalled telling Carmel Valdema.But, she said, she had no idea how to fulfill that promise. A series of chance encounters and a networking effort later, Pizey returned to run mobile medical clinics at the Valdemas’ churches. Then the Rev. Kerwin Delicat, rector of St. John’s partner parish of St Philippe & St Jacques in Gressier, asked her to hold clinics there.Since then, “we’ve just been learning over the years; we’ve been going every six months and learning how to do things from each other and from the Haitian doctors and from Carmel and from Hilda [Alcindor, dean of the FSIL School of Nursing in Léogâne],” she said.Pizey, speaking during a break in the Sept. 6-7 Haiti Medical Missions Best Practices Symposium, describes how her work in Haiti has changed her medical practice in Minnesota – and her life.An ENS report on the symposium is here.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), demand for meat, milk, and eggs will increase by more than 60 percent in the next few decades. The agreement leverages the strengths of Elanco’s animal health business with the proprietary germplasm and feed technologies of Dow AgroSciences to develop innovative solutions that can increase the efficiency, quality, and productivity of livestock for ranchers and producers worldwide.“Dow AgroSciences is proud to work closely with another Indiana agricultural company to develop future product solutions for beef and dairy producers,” says Tim Hassinger, President and CEO, Dow AgroSciences. “Collaborating with Elanco is exciting because it unites the strength of their animal health expertise with our feed and forage expertise. Together, we will be looking for ways to develop total solutions that involve improving both the carrying capacity of the land and the health and productivity of production animals to help our customers meet the needs of the growing world.”“Delivering enough of the high quality meat, milk and eggs we’ll need to feed our growing population is one of the greatest challenges of our time,” said Jeff Simmons, President of Elanco. “And we’ll have to produce more with less because we are already over using our resources, equivalent to 1.5 earths each year. Ultimately, these issues will be solved with innovative solutions, which is at the foundation of this agreement. We are very excited about the opportunities this effort will bring.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Elanco Animal Health, Dow AgroSciences Announce Strategic R&D Agreement Facebook Twitter Elanco Animal Health, Dow AgroSciences Announce Strategic R&D Agreementlast_img read more

first_img May 16, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists dismissed from Al-Chourouk end hunger strike November 12, 2019 Find out more News November 11, 2020 Find out more News Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Receive email alerts News to go further RSF_en December 26, 2019 Find out morecenter_img Reporters Without Borders is relieved at the decision of Slim Boukhdir and Shéhérazade Akacha, former journalists on the daily Al-Chourouk, to end hunger strikes, begun respectively on 4 and 19 April 2006. The two started their fast in protest at being unfairly sacked from the pro-government newspaper.“We welcome this news with relief because we were worried about the health of the two journalists,“ said Reporters Without Borders. “Slim Boukhdir suffers from serious heart and respiratory problems and has lost 15 kilos in 35 days. But we regret that the Tunisian authorities continue to harass members of the media and human rights activists,” it added.Boukhdir told Reporters Without Borders that he had huge financial problems since his salary was stopped in February 2006. “Today, after experiencing hunger as a means of protest, I am discovering hunger through necessity, since I no longer have enough money to feed my family, pay my bills and buy food and medicine which I need.”“I accept this situation even if it is intolerable, but I want to remain a free journalist and to keep my dignity.”Reporters Without Borders lists Tunisian president, Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, as one of the 38 predators of press freedom worldwide.————————————————————————–20.04.2006 A second Al-Chourouk journalist goes on hunger strikeAnother Tunisian journalist is on hunger strike. It is Shéhérazade Akacha, who began her hunger strike yesterday in protest against her dismissal from the pro-government daily Al-Chourouk for revealing details of her interrogation and harassment by the newspaper’s management after she refused to let others “dictate” an article she wrote for the 7 November supplement. A transcript of the interrogation was posted on the Tunisnews.Net website.“I demand the right to be able to do my duty as a journalist freely and with dignity, and to be able to transmit objective information without outside intervention,” she told Reporters Without Borders. “I would also like to put an end to the harassment of which I am a victim every day.”Akacha joins fellow Al-Chourouk journalist Slim Boukhdir, who had been on hunger strike for more than two weeks. He has already lost 11 kilos and has serious heart problems. He told Reporters Without Borders he was determined to press on to the end with his demands. “I no longer have any other way to express myself,” he said. “All I want is my passport and my salary back as well as the right to circulate freely without being harassed by the police.”————————————————————————–13.04.2006 Journalist and imprisoned cyber-dissident on hunger strikeVoicing concern about the state of health of journalist Slim Boukhdir, who has been on hunger strike since 4 April, and imprisoned lawyer and cyber-dissident Mohammed Abbou, who began a hunger strike on 11 March, Reporters Without Borders appealed today to the Tunisian authorities to heed their demands.“Four months have gone by since the World Summit on the Information Society in Tunis, but the harassment and threats against journalists and cyber-dissidents have not stopped,” the press freedom organisation said. “The case of Boukhdir, who has had his passport confiscated and his pay frozen because of what he wrote, is a perfect example. It is unacceptable that journalists have to resort to hunger strikes when they are made to suffer for expressing themselves freely.”Reporters Without Borders added: “President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali pardoned more than 80 political prisoners on 25 February, but he has continued to turn a deaf ear to the demands from international human rights organisations and Tunisian civil society for the release of Abbou, who has been in prison for more than a year.”A reporter for the pro-government daily Al-Chourouk and Tunis correspondent for the pan-Arab satellite TV news station Al-Arabiya, Boukhdir allegedly criticised the Tunisian authorities in articles for the station’s website, He posted statements by leaders of political parties that lack government recognition and by members of a group of government opponents who staged a joint hunger strike last October and November. He also commented on the situation of Tunisia’s political prisoners, especially Abbou.Boukhdir told Reporters Without Borders he has been ostracised by Al-Chourouk, which has not published any of his articles since November. “My salary has been frozen since February, but they refuse to give me a formal dismissal notice,” he said. “They are also refusing to give me a press card. So I am now demanding the right to free expression and the right to work.”Abbou is staging his hunger strike in protest against a deterioration in his prison conditions since 2 March, when his wife, Samia Abbou, and four of his lawyers staged a demonstration outside his prison in Kef, brandishing photos of him and chanting his name. The police had stopped their car about 15 times on the road from Tunis to Kef, while other human rights activists who tried to join the demonstration were forced to turn back.Samia Abbou told Reporters Without Borders that her husband has lost a lot of weight and she is very worried about his state of health.Known as the “freedom lawyer,” Abbou has been detained since 1 March 2005. He received a total of three and a half years in prison terms at a sham trial on 29 April 2005. The sentences were upheld on appeal on 10 June 2005. He was given two years for a supposed physical attack on a woman lawyer in 2002, although no evidence was presented for the attack. And he was given a year and a half for an article posted on a website that compared the torture of political prisoners in Tunisia to that perpetrated by US soldiers at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. The Training Standards Council has called for a fairer system of funding for the modern apprenticeships schemes, which train 120,000 young people.In a critical report on the presnet system, the council says funding available for apprenticeships should be weighted according to the real cost of training. It says that this is vital to establish the modern apprenticeship as the work-based route for progression to higher education awards.The modern apprenticeship scheme accounts for most of the growth in work-based learning among young people: 47 per cent of young people in training pursue the award, says the council.“At its best, the working environment is an ideal place in which to learn both theory and practice in a relevant and memorable way,” said the council’s chief inspector David Sherlock. “But weaknesses in funding mechanisms for modern apprenticeships are compromising achievement.” The council says using the achievement of NVQ Level 3 as the trigger for a final outcome payment by training and enterprise councils means many modern apprenticeships do not complete their training.The council recommends that standardised occupational bands should be agreed across the country. It points out that some Tecs make additional payments to encourage people to train in areas of skill shortage.In a recent report, “Modern Apprenticeships”, the council highlights differences in the funding arrangements which each Tec makes in contracting with training organisations and in working directly with companies.“The creation of a new funding body, when the Learning and Skills Council starts work in 2001, offers a golden opportunity to iron out discrepancies and make things better for learner and employer,” said Sherlock.Nicky Perry, an information officer with the TSC, said that there was substantial variation between Tecs in different parts of the country.• Modern Apprenticeships Training Standards Council report from 01865 788740 By Paul Dinsdale Call for fairer trainee fundingOn 17 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.

first_img Previous Article Next Article A common, and often justified complaint from the HR profession is that newworkplace rules are introduced following insufficient consultation withemployers. But that accusation can hardly be levelled at the Health and SafetyExecutive (HSE) in its approach to developing its stress management standards. As well as piloting the draft standards with a group of public and privatesector employers, the regulatory body is now seeking HR professionals’ viewsabout issues involved in managing stress at work through a joint survey withPersonnel Today. The study will seek to reveal the extent of the problem of work-relatedstress across different sectors, some of its main causes and its impact in theworkplace. It will also highlight employers’ view on the barriers to managing stresseffectively – and the potential solutions. Elizabeth Gyngell, head of the HSE’s better working environment division,has pledged that the results will be used to fine tune the standards, and willcontribute to the final consultation this autumn. Gyngell says the HSE’s approach to tackling work-related stress is based onlistening and engaging honestly with those who want to find solutions. However,the HSE proved that it is willing to take action on stress when it issued animprovement notice against an NHS trust last month under the Health and Safetyat Work Act. Employers have been left in no doubt that managing stress can no longer beregarded as a luxury – those that do not take the stress management standardsseriously are likely to feel the force of the HSE’s iron fist inside its velvetglove. Motivating the workforce As employers strive to improve productivity, one of the biggest challengesthey face is how to engage and involve staff in the running of the business. Elaine Way, president of the Association of Healthcare Human ResourceManagement, believes more needs to be known about what motivates staff andboosts morale, and has instigated a major research project on the issue acrossthe health service. She thinks that managers who are able to trust their staff and give themresponsibility will reap the benefits in the long run in the form of a moreenthusiastic, engaged and creative workforce. It is hard to disagree with herthat good people management is about becoming a leader of leaders rather than aleader of followers Comments are closed.
