Victoria first to implement new consumer protection controls Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling 22nd May 2019 | By contenteditor Victoria will this weekend become the first Australian state to introduce strict new nationwide online gambling rules covering marketing, promotions and deposits.From Sunday (May 26) Victoria will implement regulations agreed late last year by regional and federal authorities to commit to the National Consumer Protection Framework for Online Wagering.Under the rules, online betting operators in Victoria – home to 6.4m people – must comply with requirements for betting account deposit limits, restrictions on direct marketing and a ban on perks that encourage consumers to continue betting.Victoria’s Minister for Gaming and Liquor Regulation, Marlene Kairouz, said the new rules would make the state’s gambling sector the best regulated in Australia.“These Australian-first changes are about tightening the rules for online betting operators and empowering consumers to make better choices – and I encourage other states and territories to follow our lead,” said Kairouz.“Victoria is the first state to sign up to the national framework because it offers greater protection to people who gamble online and gives them practical steps to better manage their gambling.”From Sunday wagering service providers will be banned from offering credit, vouchers or other rewards to an account holder as an incentive to refer their family or friends to open a betting account. Operators will also be prohibited from providing complementary or free bets on the condition that account holders can only use the winnings to continue to bet, rather than giving customers an option to withdraw the funds.Consumers must proactively opt-in to direct marketing, and must be offered simple and easy-to-use tools to set limits on the amount of money that can be deposited. Customers must also be able to easily close accounts.The changes were welcomed by Shane Lucas, the chief executive of the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation.He said: “Providing individuals with easily accessible tools and information to monitor and manage their gambling are important steps in reducing and preventing gambling harm.”The National Consumer Protection Framework for Online Wagering, designed to offer “nationally consistent protections for consumers of Australian interactive wagering services” is to be implemented across the country by May 2020.The federal government introduced the new rules following the 2015 Review of Illegal Offshore Wagering and over fears about the prevalence of problem gambling among online punters. It claims that the rate of online problem gambling is three times higher than other types of gambling.Speaking in December 2018, Paul Fletcher, the Federal Minister for Families and Social Services, said: “The measures are designed to reduce the harm that can be caused to individuals and their families by excessive or at-risk online wagering.“The National Framework will apply to about 2.5 million active online wagering accounts, or about a million people in Australia.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Topics: Legal & compliance AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Victoria will this weekend become the first Australian state to introduce strict new nationwide online gambling rules covering marketing, promotions and deposits.

State Pension worries? I think investing £100 a month in UK shares could help you retire in comfort Stressing the importance of saving for your retirement is a drum we here at The Motley Fool like to beat on a regular basis. Pensioner poverty in the UK is on the rise as growing social care costs outstrip the rate at which the State Pension is rising each year. The impact on the Covid-19 crisis on the public purse means this disparity is likely to get much worse too.It’s no reason for you and I to panic though. After all, history shows us that investing in UK shares can allow us to hurdle the problem of a poor State Pension and retire in comfort. Building a terrific nestegg for retirement doesn’t need to cost the earth either.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…Just £100 could make the difference!History shows us that long-term investors in UK shares tend to enjoy an average annual return of between 8% and 10% per year. There are few other investment options that can deliver that sort of proven return over time. And so it’s the perfect solution to help boost your post-retirement income and offset that pathetic State Pension.Let’s say you have as little to invest as £100 a month in something like a Stocks and Shares ISA. Based on that 8-10% formula, someone who buys a hundred pounds worth of shares a month can expect to make somewhere between £141,000 and £206,000 over the space of 30 years.Look, I understand the rising cost of living in recent years, and more recently the economic crisis caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, has put all of our finances under serious pressure. But I think £100 per month is very much achieveable for many of us. It may require some discipline when it comes to your habits sure. I reckon £100 per month is a small price to pay to obtain peace of mind though, as the real-world benefits of the State Pension crumbles.Soothe your State Pension worries todayThe returns you and I can make from UK shares over the long term could well stave off pensioner poverty then. If you can afford to invest more than £100 a month though, the returns could be much more spectacular.Someone who can stretch their investing budget to £200 per month could, at those proven rates of return, build a mighty retirement fund of between £282,000 and £413,000 over 30 years. Even those who don’t have the benefit of three decades to save before retirement can make decent returns too. My calculations show that someone who invests that same amount over 15 years could build a nestegg ranging from £68,000 to £80,000. So stock investing can make a big difference even to those who have no savings at 50.So get investing in UK shares, I say. They could help you stave off pensioner poverty caused by the weak State Pension. And the stock market crash enables you and I to build a five-star shares portfolio at little cost too.

Enter Your Email Address Last year, Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust (LSE:SMT) shares soared by over 130% amidst the pandemic. However, the recent US tech stock price plunge has seen the value of SMT shares drop over 20% this month. Whilst this may damage shareholders’ confidence in future performance, I am using it as an opportunity to grab more shares at a cheaper price for my portfolio. Tech-dominant portfolio Part of the reason for last year’s stellar performance is the large exposure Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust has to US tech stocks. Some of its largest holdings include Tesla and Amazon, whose share values skyrocketed 695% and 75% respectively during the pandemic. Whilst this has provided short-term gains for investors, the trust’s portfolio also comprises of a number of smaller, more scalable stocks, for example NIO, a Chinese electric car manufacturer with exciting upside potential. 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…However, whilst this exposure is largely accountable for SMT’s success, it is also closely linked to its recent dip in share price. The major US tech sell-off that has occurred in recent weeks is primarily due to inflationary concerns. Rising bond yields in the UK have seen the 10-year yield reach 0.8%, with a similar story in the US. This is an indication of future interest rates, which pose a threat to the future of growth stocks who often operate in debt. In addition to this, with post-pandemic normality on the horizon, focus could be shifting away from pandemic performing tech stocks and back onto recovering sectors such as the travel industry. After all, people are less likely to stay at home watching Netflix or to have their shopping delivered via online retailers such as Ocado, both of which make up 2.8% (£519m) of Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust’s current portfolio. Long-term optimisation A good chunk of the trust’s assets is invested in early-phase tech stocks, optimised for long-term growth compared to short-term gains. This is imperative to keep in mind when worrying about short-term dips. Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust manager, Baillie Gifford, demonstrated its active management by selling and banking profit on over 7% of its Tesla stock earlier this year prior to the tech dip. This gives me huge confidence in the trust’s management, a quality I look for in all my investments. My outlook for SMT’s future I believe the real appeal of shares in Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust lie within its actively managed and diversified portfolio. It offers investors a chance to hold indirect positions in many successful US companies as well as newer, more scalable stocks, likely to provide bigger growth in the future. Though the trust has suffered a dip in share price due to the US tech sell-off, I’m using this as an opportunity to buy more shares. Though the tech sector may drop further due to post-Covid inflation concerns, I am confident in the investment professionals at Baillie Gifford who are constantly streamlining Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust to optimise future returns.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Listen to coaching adviceSteve Nance is the performance director at Leeds Carnegie. Half-time can provide a crucial ten to 15 minutes for teams to regroup and refocus. It can be a turning point in any game. A team that wasn’t performing well in the first half can come out firing in the second, while the leading team can also go off the boil and squander their chance of winning the game.Staying hydrated is very important and half-time gives every player the chance to take on some fluids. I suggest drinking an isotonic drink such as Gatorade or Powerade. The aim is to replacethe salts and minerals already lost as much as possible, and these products will help you to do this.The players don’t eat at all in the middle of the game. They should be following a good nutrition programme and what they eat before kick-off should see them through the 80 minutes.When the team first enters the locker room, they will sit down to hear the coaches and senior players talk. This isn’t a time to switch off and it’s important for the team to stay focused; the job’s only half done at this stage. So we’ll discuss how the first half has gone and what needs to be done in the second period, whether it’s improving on parts of our game or seeing through the game plan to the end. The players will usually drive this, and individuals may also be keen to talk about their own roles at this stage.We’re lucky to have heated locker rooms, so the players won’t get cold in this short time. But if you don’t have a changing room or if it’s a chilly room, you must stay warm. Put an extra layer on or stay active by walking around. Don’t forget to drink, too. It’s easy to think you don’t need to top up on fluids if you’re not feeling too hot.If there are any injuries in the team, or if anyone needs strapping up, the physios will attend to them at half-time. Make sure you’re well strapped before you go back out to play because once the game starts there won’t be enough time to receive proper treatment. In the Guinness Premiership half-time lasts 15 minutes, whereas in most games you only get ten minutes. It’s important to warm up before you start playing again, so at Leeds Carnegie we’re always back out on the pitch after 12 minutes, before the referee comes to get us. Do some jogging on the spot or some dynamic stretches so that you’re ready to go for another 40 minutes.It’s a good idea to get into a routine that you know works for you. Your aim is to be refreshed when you go back onto the pitch. Make the most of it.Key Points:Drink plenty but don’t eatKeep warm and restrap

Casa Wakasa, home to a young family of four is located in the suburbs of Osaka, Japan. The house attempts to be both a reflection into contemporary Japan’s family life (sense of family vs. privacy) as well as a solution to balance individual freedom and space with collective activities and time.The basic unit of the house is an amalgam of a room and an outdoor courtyard; each room for each member of the family has an integrated garden as its counterpart.

The father who works as a dentist from 9AM to 9PM everyday wants to have a place in his own house that at the end of the day he could withdraw even from his family, his wife and two young daughters, to pursue the subjects of his personal interest – music, films and books. This open glass room, connecting to the house only through an underground corridor, is the sanctuary where he can be himself. The family has meals and activities together in the family living and dining room but each one of them could withdraw into their own world in their own room / garden.

Contractor: Architect In Charge:Sean RadfordDesign Team:Sean Radford, Alison NobbsAssistant Architects:Trevor Black, Laura BagnatoCity:SydneyCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsText description provided by the architects. It was felt important from the outset that the new works drew from the original house as a basis for investigation, concrete as a heavy material was selected over framed construction. The new works boldly reinterprets the structure and materiality of the elements that make up the original Victorian era cottage. The off form concrete draws on the solidity of the original masonry structure whilst introducing a new materiality. The narrow openings of the original facade are reinterpreted in similarly proportioned forms for a new period. An emphasis on vertical openings creates an alliance with the original fenestration. Save this picture!Courtesy of Nobbs Radford ArchitectsThe project is not primarily focused on the connection to external spaces but looks inward with interconnections of cloistered spaces, created and selected framed openings. The outer concrete elements contrast with the timber elements that further define the various internal zones and functions within the house.The depth of the rear facade creates an interstitial threshold which is a space in itself to be occupied and provide a sense of enclosure. The idea is to create intermediating spaces that ground the house in relation to both its interior and exterior.Within the house the void acts as a centralising space via which other areas of the house interconnect.Save this picture!Courtesy of Nobbs Radford ArchitectsStructurally the house created many demands, we wanted the stacked concrete elements of the rear facade to appear to load at “zero points” at the surface of the facade. We worked with the structural engineers over many meetings to find a resolution that worked for all. Gratefully the house has recently been awarded best small building at the inaugural ACSE awards.Thermal modeling was performed on the schematic 3D model and the use of concrete added to the thermal performance of the building considerably to the point where double glazing was not considered necessary.Save this picture!Courtesy of Nobbs Radford ArchitectsComplementing materials of near raw fifteen metre continuous length floor boards and a restrained palette of black aluminium, stainless steel and oak appear throughout the house and create a cohesive connection between original and new. These materials were selected, partially, so as not to compete with the ornate patterning of the original house along with their own inherent qualities.The project’s fundamental rationale is to create a family home that recognised the various needs of the occupiers, spaces for children and adults with a flexibility for both retreat and engagement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Nobbs Radford ArchitectsSustainabilitySignificant sections of the house are constructed from single skin concrete, which given its thermal mass,longevity and embodied energy as say in comparison to steel was considered a sound choice as a building material for the temperate climate of Sydney.Save this picture!Courtesy of Nobbs Radford ArchitectsThermal modeling was performed on the schematic 3D model and the use of concrete added to the thermal performance of the building considerably to the point where double glazing was not considered necessary.Transport of concrete was from the Hanson site in Glebe less than 2km from the site.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe house is designed and constructed for longevity. Aside from the materiality the use of narrow openings with deep reveals to the rear western facade aids in reducing direct sun in the summer months.The timber flooring material is from a fourth generation family owned business from plantation forests FSC and PEFC certification.

Three types of innovation at CRUKWaudby’s arguments were supported by Richard Taylor, CRUK’s ceo and chair of the Institute of Fundraising, who said the sector was “lazy” in the way it came up with new charity fundraising ideas to deal with the challenges facing individual giving.“We like look for something shiny and new and we badge it,” he said. “But we are nibbling at the same market and not growing it. Perhaps those who take more risks will get a bigger slice of the pie.”Taylor explained that CRUK focused on three types of innovation:1. Strategic – identifying strategic gaps in the charity’s fundraising, such as not having a presence on a particular fundraising medium, and coming up with new ideas to solve that. Speaking later at the conference, Janine Chandler, CRUK’s head of innovation development, cited Dryathalon, Citizen Science and the Race for Life app as some of CRUK’s successful strategic innovations. But she also said there had been some strategic failures, including Man vs Everything and Mute A Mate.2. Radical – looking forward to the future issues and “reinventing” the way fundraising is done to be ready to meet those challenges. As radical innovators, Taylor said CRUK saw itself as “having a leadership role in the sector” in respect of innovation, “imagining what fundraising might be like 10 years from now”.3. Tactical – opportunistic innovation that picks up on trends and allows CRUK to “play in the same space” as other charities. • Speaking the following week at the International Fundraising Congress in the Netherlands, professor Adrian Sergeant, director of Plymouth University’s Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy said that “failure is the acceptable cost of innovation.” Tagged with: innovation British fundraising suffering from an ‘innovation deficit’ Howard Lake | 28 October 2014 | News The approaches to innovation at MarsAt a different session at the conference, David Thomas, innovation programme leader at confectionary and pet food company Mars, described how the company’s innovations process had gone through three stages since the 1990s.Idea-centric (1990s) – product development was led by the Mars team coming up with new ideas. This was the time when “ideas were gold” but there was “no need to talk to consumers to find out what they wanted, you’d just have to get the marketing team in the room and brainstorm”.Insight-centric (2000s) – product development was led by identifying customer needs and wants and fulfilling them. Taylor said Mars operated by the principle of ‘deep customer immersion’. Quality of goods and value for money became the goal.Growth-centric (2010s) – Taylor said that innovation is now seen as a strategy that has growth as the outcome with four components: mergers and acquisitions, expansion, redefining brand and new products.He also cited research conducted by the Harvard Business Review that showed that 42 per cent of the success of a new initiative is attributable to the commitment of senior leadership.

But we are not good at taking at taking risks on new products.”Kevin WaudbyWaudby suggested there were five factors underpinning the deficit:1) ‘Safe’ leadership – which assumes that innovation would “just happen” and did not set aside the time or space to allow innovation to develop, often driven by a focus on short-term targets and an aversion to risk2) In-fighting for the ‘emotional’ pound – which assumes that giving happens across a spectrum of motivations, but that the sector currently focuses overly on generating an emotional response to encourage giving, rather than other, more transactional but under-explored, motivations3) Insight-lite new product development – which assumes the sector relies too much on data as the only source of ‘insight’ into new product development; but relying on data alone would not provide the ‘depth’ to the problems innovative fundraising is trying to solve.4) Innovation ‘in-capability’ – which assumes that developing and driving new ideas to deliver value takes a broad range of skills and expertise that are as yet generally under-developed in the sector5) Creativity is the same thing as innovation – which assumes that there’s still a mistaken belief that creativity and ideas are the end game of innovation, rather than the hard work of actually delivering new ideas to market and adding value to the bottom line.

Acuna, Founder and CEO of The Pizza Plant, and Ravi Choudhry, Co-Founder and CIO, why their business supports Union Station Homeless Services, their answer is simple: They want to be good neighbors and partner with an organization that was already impacting lives in the community.“As I grow older and ponder the meaning of life, I find myself returning to the same answer.” says Acuna. “It’s family, friends, and community. And as we considered how best to support the Pasadena community, Union Station Homeless Services emerged as the clear and absolute choice,”Led by Chef Rachel Carr, The Pizza Plant is located in Pasadena on Madison Avenue, at the corner of Green Street. However, Acuna and Choudhry have a vision of opening up to 1,000 stores in three years. Store number two is already opening in Venice this fall, and a custom food truck on its way. Of the 4,200 plus food trucks in the U.S., The Pizza Plant’s truck will be the only 100% organic, plant-based, pizza truck.For Union Station Homeless Services, support from The Pizza Plant is more than a food donation. “We were immediately drawn to the fact that The Pizza Plant has a philanthropic mission,” says Stephanie Harris, Director of Special Programs at Union Station. “The community awareness that these partnerships provide is so integral to the success of Union Station. When we can connect with their patrons and staff about the amazing work we are doing to rebuild lives in San Gabriel Valley, it inspires people to become part of the solution to end homelessness!”With 45 years of providing life-changing services, Union Station Homeless Services the largest homeless services provider in San Gabriel Valley. The nonprofit provides outreach, shelter, housing and supportive services to adults and families who are experiencing homelessness. Last year, they helped more than 700 find housing last year – that is nearly 2 people a day.So the next time you have a craving for pizza, consider The Pizza Plant. Aside from nourishing yourself with a pizza that is made with organic, whole plant based ingredients, each time you enjoy one of their pizzas, you can also feel great knowing that individuals and families experiencing challenges and homelessness are enjoying one too because of you.Want to be part of the solution?
