BOS reports Svenska Spel to consumer ombudsman

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Swedish operator association Branschföreningen för onlinespel (BOS) has reported Svenska Spel and national free-to-air television network TV4 to the country’s consumer ombudsman for failing to include responsible gaming information in TV segments promoting Triss instant win products.BOS, in a report filed with the Konsumentombudsmannen (KO), has said Svenska Spel and TV4 are in breach of Chapter 3 of the Swedish Games Act as the advertorial content did not refer to the 18+ age limit for players or include information about the national problem gambling helpline.Svenska Spel and TV4 are also accused of breaching Section 9 of the Swedish Marketing Act as information about a product is missing from the segments.Finally, BOS has said the TV spots were broadcast in breach of Chapter 1 Section 5 of Swedish gambling industry guidelines, which states that marketing must not exaggerate the opportunities for profit or present the product as if the player is guaranteed to win.BOS secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt said it is “outrageous” that Svenska Spel, as an operator owned by the state in Sweden, is seemingly ignoring Swedish marketing regulations.“It is very important that KO puts its foot down and points out that advertising spots with editorial collaborations will also follow the Swedish Gaming Act and the Marketing Act, as well as the industry’s own regulations,” Hoffstedt said.“Unless this is the case, consumer protection is overridden and it becomes clear to any gaming company whatsoever to hide their advertising in editorial collaborations, and thus ignore both laws and industry agreements,” he explained. “BOS works for a healthy and safe gaming market for Swedish gaming consumers. We therefore welcome the regulatory enhancements for the gaming market in consumer protection that have been added in recent years.”Last month, BOS also filed a report with Sweden’s TV, radio and press regulator for Svenska Spel failing to include responsible gaming information in TV segments promoting its Triss, Keno and Lotto products.

Rugby books to buy for Christmas

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Need a few ideas for Christmas gifts? Look no further than rugby books. It’s a bumper year for them, starting with a cluster of autobiographies by some heavy hitters… What’s on your list? There’s no shortage of options when buying presents for Christmas (Imogen Pearey) Rugby books to buy for Christmas“Let’s be reasonable and add an eighth day to the week that is devoted exclusively to reading,” said the comedy writer Lena Dunham. You’ll certainly need a few extra days to enjoy the deluge of rugby books that have hit the shelves this autumn.And you might be tempted to ask “Where’s Gregor?” because Scotland’s head coach is alone among the home nation bosses at RWC 2019 in not bringing out an autobiography.In print: Warren Gatland has plenty to say (Getty)Warren Gatland stole a march on his rivals with a 14 November release date for his Pride and Passion (Headline, £20), the New Zealander able to reflect on an extraordinary three decades of success that includes three Wales Grand Slams, two World Cup semi-finals and two unbeaten Lions series.Fellow Kiwi Joe Schmidt provides life lessons and management ideas in Ordinary Joe (Penguin Ireland, £25), a book that The Irish Times calls “an insight into the fascinating personality of the man who has been the most influential figure in Irish rugby over the last decade, or probably any other decade for that matter”.While Schmidt elected to write his book himself, England coach Eddie Jones recruited the award-winning author Donald McRae to pen his life story for the first time.Jones’s book, My Life and Rugby (Macmillan, £20), has been serialised by The Times and includes an admission of selection errors for the recent World Cup final.“I should have chosen Joe Marler ahead of Mako Vunipola at loosehead prop and reverted to the Owen Farrell-Manu Tuilagi-Henry Slade midfield we used against Australia,” he says.“George Ford could have come off the bench when we had got into the game. But you never know until the game starts. You use the best available evidence and rely on your gut.”Supporting role: Joe Marler watches from the touchline during the World Cup final (Getty Images)As a result, Sir Clive Woodward remains the only England coach to land the Webb Ellis Cup and in How to Win (Hodder & Stoughton, £20) he analyses the events of Japan 2019 in a book branded as “the distillation of a philosophy of leadership developed during a lifetime in high-performance environments, from the rugby field to the boardroom”. Woodward’s 2003 book Winning!, published shortly after England’s triumph in Sydney, is still in print.Switching hemispheres, Heroes & Heartbreak (Allen & Unwin, £17.99) is published in New Zealand but will be available on Book Depository and Amazon from 3 December. It follows every beat of the All Blacks campaign in the 12 months up to and including their failed attempt to bag a third successive world crown.“The climax was not the one that the All Blacks wanted, and signals a new era in world rugby. It may prove to be a defining moment for the game in New Zealand as well,” says the promotional literature, enticingly.Not this time: the All Blacks couldn’t make it a World Cup hat-trick – a new book explains why (Getty)The book is written by freelance sportswriter Jamie Wall and he’s also responsible for Brothers in Black (Allen & Unwin, £14.99), which looks at the astounding number of brothers playing top-level rugby in New Zealand.One of the country’s all-time greats, Kieran Read, has bowed out internationally and tells of his experiences in his autobiography Straight 8 (Headline, £20).Welsh rugby fans are also well served this year. Glenn Webbe’s autobiography, The Gloves are Off (Y Lolfa, £9.99), is the story of the 1980s Bridgend wing who became the first black player to play for Wales.Geraint Thomas, co-author of the book, said: “I actually played alongside Glenn for Bridgend in the early ’90s, so I knew as well as being a brilliant player he had a huge personality as well. I will never forget waiting to run out for my Bridgend debut, feeling very nervous, when Glenn turned to me in the tunnel and said, ‘So, are you any good?’ – typical Glenn!”center_img Y Lolfa also have a book out on the outgoing Wales coach. Called Gatland’s Last Bow (£9.99), it’s written by Richard Morgan and will be published in December.We ran a competition for Sam Warburton’s Open Side (HarperCollins, £20), about the mental and physical toll of playing elite-level rugby, when the book came out in September.Behind the Dragon: Playing Rugby for Wales (Polaris, £20) is a history book in the players’ own words, as expertly crafted by Ross Harries, while On to Glory (VSP, £20) is the story of Wales’ 2019 Grand Slam in glorious technicolour. Both were published early this year.Further north, The World According to Doddie (Black & White, £12.99) is a light-hearted collection of mantras, mottos and one-liners from the legendary Doddie Weir. Seeing as we’re in election mode, here’s a suggestion from the book. “Why is there a need for charities?” says the tireless MND campaigner. “Take 10p from everyone, per week, and divide that up amongst all the charities. Revolutionary, eh? Vote Doddie.”Oor Doddie: former Scotland lock Doddie Weir in Dundee with a sculpture created in his honourA Full-back Slower than your Average Prop (Arena, £17.99) is the memoir of former Scotland full-back Ian Smith and takes its title from an unflattering description of him in a book about Scottish rugby! Reviewing the book, Allan Massie said it will “delight readers who remember the amateur days with pleasure and nostalgia, and astonish those too young to have had the good fortune to have known them”.Smith, by the way, is still a practising dentist at the age of 75, living in Norfolk.Unholy Union (Constable, £20) is a fascinating and in-depth analysis of our sport. Author Michael Aylwin and consultant Mark Evans have collaborated on every imaginable topic, from concussion to the salary cap to the struggles of the community game. It’s just one of the books we’ll be featuring in an online competition in the near future.Amberley Publishing in Gloucestershire produced a couple of books this autumn. At Least We Turn Up is the biography of John Pullin, the former England and Lions hooker, while The Lion of the RAF relates the career of George Beamish, a WW2 hero who played for Ireland and the Lions between the wars.Family man: John Pullin, a star of the 1960s and ’70s, combined Test rugby with life as a farmerIf risqué is your thing, Taking it Up the Blindside (DCO Books) is a collection of short stories based on tour antics in Thailand and South-East Asia. Written by Jon Prichard, the Kindle edition is available for less than £7 at the time of writing.Staying in Asia, Tokkie Smith and the Colour of Rugby (Adagio Media, $14.99) is John D’Eathe’s tribute to the founder of the Hong Kong Sevens.The Wooden Spoon Yearbook 2020 (Lennard, £20) is the 24th edition of the fund-raising annual and this year is largely devoted to the World Cup. Sir Ian McGeechan and editor Ian Robertson pick their World Cup XV and include some surprise choices.Related content: Win the Official Review of Japan 2019Some old favourites have been updated. Rugby’s Strangest Matches (Portico, £9.99) by John Griffiths relates some of the sport’s quirky goings-on, while for all you active players, Chic Carvell and Rex Hazeldine have you sorted with Fitness for Winning Rugby (Austin Macauley, £17.99). Alongside core fitness information, it includes chapters on nutrition, injuries and recovery. But don’t expect it to fit in a Christmas stocking!No Borders (Polaris, £14.99) must also be mentioned here. Tom English won the 2016 Rugby Book of the Year with the original version and a newer edition, containing exclusive new material from Ireland players in the wake of their 2018 Grand Slam, was released last year.Finally, something for the youngest readers of all. Ben the Tractor and Friends (David & Charles, £7) is a children’s story produced for Ben Moon’s testimonial. The long-serving Exeter prop, who has eight England caps, is supporting two charities: the Exeter Chiefs Foundation and the Beacon Centre. For the kids: one of Molly Finnegan’s beautiful illustrations from Ben the Tractor and FriendsRugby World has reviewed some of these books and run competitions in the past 12 months – and we’ll be featuring more of these titles in the coming weeks. There’s a lot of good stuff out there, so don’t forget to buy one or two of them for the festive season.

If no information on fishing advisories is available, eat just one fish meal a week from local waters and also, avoid other fish that week.EPA and FDA are urging all retailers, grocers and others to post this new fish consumption advice, including the reference chart listing fish to choose, prominently in their stores so consumers can make informed decisions when and where they purchase fish.

Manu Tuilagi’s powerful try against Saracens

first_imgSunday Mar 6, 2011 Manu Tuilagi’s powerful try against Saracens Manu Tuilagi scored a fantastic try yesterday as his Leicester Tigers side had their nine-game winning run come to an end with a 15-14 loss to Saracens in the Aviva Premiership. Tuilagis try was quite special though, so thats featured here now.Despite this try, it wasnt a great day for the Tigers as they came within a point of victory after Billy Twelvetrees, who had just come onto the pitch, missed a last-minute penalty attempt that would have given them the win at Welford Road.They had the lead at halftime following a great try from Manu Tuilagi, the younger of the two first choice Tigers brothers. He has been steadily building his way up the England ranks and with form like this, might just somehow sneak into World Cup consideration, although at this stage it may be a bit too late.His try was out of the top drawer though, with Kiwis Scott Hamilton and Thomas Waldrom feeding Samoan Alesana Tuilagi, before a long pass reached younger brother Manu. He then brushed aside two tackle attempts before ploughing over the last as he went in at the corner.It wasnt enough though, as the disappointing loss for his side means that Saracens are now up to within two points of the Tigers at the top of the table. It was a great try nevertheless. You’ll be able to view highlights from the game on the Eplayer sometime within the next day or so. If you’re not sure what the Eplayer is, it’s to the right and looks like. :: Related Posts :: Manu Tuilagi’s well timed tackle vs Northampton Saints Alesana Tuilagi huge hit on Mark van Gisbergen Manu Tuilagi’s smashing tackle on Tom Williams Time: 02:08ADVERTISEMENT 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.

City Remains Firmly In Orange Tier; Expands Vaccine Eligibility

first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News City Remains Firmly In Orange Tier; Expands Vaccine Eligibility CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 | 3:00 pm Courtesy Angeles County’s rate of new COVID-19 infections rose slightly today compared to last week, according to figures released by the state, keeping Pasadena firmly entrenched in the orange tier of California’s economic-reopening blueprint.According to state figures released weekly on Tuesdays, Los Angeles County’s seven-day average daily rate of new COVID-19 cases was 3.2 per 100,000 residents, a slight increase from 3.1 over the past two weeks.In order to advance to the less-restrictive yellow tier of the state’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, the county must reach an average daily case rate below 2 per 100,000 residents, and then maintain that rate for at least two weeks. That means Los Angeles County is now guaranteed to remain in the orange tier until at least late April.The county’s rate of people testing positive for the virus also held steady from last week, at a low 1.5%.Reaching the yellow tier would allow a further loosening of health restrictions, including additional capacity at most businesses.“We have moderate transmission in L.A. County, so it remains necessary to continue taking steps to prevent increases in cases to keep our recovery from stalling,” county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement. “One important tool for reducing transmission is vaccines.”Ferrer said that while the county is adhering to federal warnings and pausing the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, residents are still urged to get either the Pfizer or Moderna shot.“We are grateful to the researchers and scientists working to ensure that all medications or vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccines, meet the highest safety standards,” she said.Meanwhile, the county and Pasadena expanded their vaccine eligibility to residents aged 16 and over. Appointments for the vaccines at city sites can be made at the sites are operated by the city, they are open to any Los Angeles County resident.The city sites now include the vaccination center at Cal State Los Angeles, which until Sunday was being operated by a partnership between the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. That federal partnership, which was an eight-week pilot program, ended Sunday, and the city agreed to take over the operation of the site to ensure continued access to vaccines in the area.In addition to CSULA, the city also operates sites at San Fernando Park, Hansen Dam, Crenshaw Christian Center, Lincoln Park, Pierce College, USC University Park, Los Angeles Southwest College, and Dodger Stadium.All sites will be open Tuesday through Saturday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Dodger Stadium will only be offering appointments until 1 p.m. this week from Tuesday through Thursday to accommodate home games, although the site will remain open until 4 p.m.Los Angeles County-operated vaccination sites will not expand to people 16 and over until Thursday, when the state officially lowers the eligibility age. The state’s website is expected to be adjusted Wednesday to allow everyone 16 and older to make appointments for vaccinations.Ferrer noted this week that people aged 16 and 17 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine because it is the only one approved for people that young, so teens will have to make appointments at sites that offer that specific shot.The county this week received an allocation of 323,470 doses of vaccine, a drop of roughly 80,000 from last week, due to a major reduction in the supply of the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine. Los Angeles County only had an allocation of about 19,600 J&J doses this week — a small percentage of the overall supply.
