iGB Market Monitor: December 2020

first_imgWhen Sweden announced it was regulating the market starting from January 2019, it was clear to the big operators that moving into the white market would be less profitable than remaining outside of it. Analysts suggest this could lead to a sizeable shift away from the regulated market in the next five years, which if true, would represent a massive failure for Sweden’s licensing system. Stephen CarterEditorial director, iGB Regions: Europe The end result is that smaller operators are increasingly choosing to target Swedish players without gaining a licence, while bigger operators are questioning whether they’ve made the right choice in opting for the licensed regime. Finance iGB Market Monitor: December 2020 However, even before Covid-19 struck, there were signs the market wasn’t working as it should and the knee-jerk political reaction to the pandemic has made things worse. Given the addition of deposit limits and the misguided idea of a central state-run portal to enforce these, it’s unsurprising that all evidence points to a growing shift of players from the regulated market to the unregulated market.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Further south in Europe, similar debates are taking place in Portugal, where the latest data suggests more and more players are also moving outside the licensed system. Here, as with Sweden, politicians seem intent on using assumptions about a rise in igaming due to the pandemic to justify further clampdowns on operators, despite contradictory evidence. But many assumed there would be a trade-off in terms of legitimacy and that ultimately it was the only choice in an environment where the government had made clear a high channelisation rate was a key priority. This edition of the iGB Market Monitor drills down into the latest public numbers and considers the current state of play in Sweden, Denmark and Portugal. 7th December 2020 | By Joanne Christie Topics: Casino & games Finance Sports betting Regulation There is more optimistic news from Denmark, however, where an analysis of the data from the beginning of the regulated market in 2012 until last year clearly demonstrates that the addition of online can add to a market’s overall size rather than simply shifting play between channels.

Diana Akiyama, bishop-elect of the Diocese of Oregon. Photo: Diocese of Oregon[Diocese of Oregon] Delegates to the Electing Convention held Aug. 29 have elected the Rev. Diana Akiyama as the 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon. The vote was confirmed after two ballots, concluding the yearlong process of seeking a successor for Bishop Michael Hanley, who began his service in the diocese in 2010 and will retire in January 2021.Akiyama currently serves as vicar at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Church in Kapaau, Hawaii, and is dean of Waiolaihui’ia School for Formation.Ordained in 1988 in the Diocese of Eastern Oregon, Akiyama has the historical distinction of being the first Japanese-American woman ordained to the Episcopal priesthood. She has extensive experience in Christian formation, teaching, social justice advocacy and mission field, having served ministries in Oregon, California and Hawaii.The Electing Convention was the first all-online election held within The Episcopal Church. Due to state-imposed COVID-19 restrictions and health concerns, the originally scheduled June 2020 election was postponed, tentatively refashioned as a multi-site event and ultimately conducted remotely via Zoom. The majority of voting delegates reported from their own homes, some reported from their parish settings and a head table was established to oversee the election proceedings at All Saints Episcopal Church in Portland.“We did not choose the circumstances under which to hold the episcopal election. However, with the exceptionally creative and hard work of the Transition Committee, the flexibility of our candidates and the fervent prayers of the diocese, we feel so blessed to bring this process to a full and joyous conclusion,” said the Rev. Patti Hale, president of the Standing Committee.“It is with deep gratitude to the clergy and laity of the Diocese of Oregon gathered in convention this day that I rejoice in the election of the 11th bishop of Oregon, the Rev. Akiyama,” said Hanley. “The diocese of Oregon is also grateful to all the candidates who stood for election. In all our work we have continued to pray for the presence of the Holy Spirit in this process and I believe that the Spirit was present in all that we did this day.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Bishop Elections, Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Fertility and Tillage Top Post Harvest Chores

Fertility and tillage top the list of things to be done. Most corn growers took off some very good yields this year and, as a result, will need to replenish their soil fertility. Brian Schrader with Pioneer said, “If you have taken of a big corn or soybean crop, you are going to have to go back in and figure what that removal rate was. You may be shorting next year’s crop if you took off a significant crop this year.” He told HAT he has been recommending that customers may need to apply some supplemental fertilizer to insure the 2019 crop has what it needs.Schrader says another issue confronting many farmers this fall will be soil compaction. “You are definitely seeing some things show up this year. I have been talking with many customers about doing some deep tillage this fall to break up that compaction.” Schrader says rain may hamper this effort this fall but urges producers to consider addressing soil compaction before next planting season.last_img read more

first_imgLimerick on Covid watch list SAMARITANS Ireland are encouraging people to get involved with the charity in Limerick to give something back to local community and make a difference to people’s lives.Samaritans are best known for the vital support given to callers on its 24-hour telephone service, but volunteers are also on hand to offer support by SMS, email and face-to-face in communities, outreach events and in prisons.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Regional Director for Samaritans Ireland, Cindy O’Shea is now urging people to consider becoming a Samaritans volunteer.“As Samaritans volunteers, we offer round-the-clock emotional support to anyone who is struggling to cope with whatever life has thrown at them,” Cindy explained.“Even on Christmas Day we answered almost 1,000 calls, spending more than 150 hours on the phone.

Limerick families stand up for mental health inside City Hall

first_imgNewsHealthPoliticsLimerick families stand up for mental health inside City HallBy Alan Jacques – September 18, 2019 1552 WhatsApp Linkedin Facebook Print Lauren Hehir, Carew Park; Willie O’Neill, Newport and Mary Sheehan, O’Malley Park, holding photographs of family and friends who died by suicide in recent months at the ‘Stand UP for Mental Health’ protest.Photo: Cian ReinhardtEMOTIONS ran high in City Hall on Monday as grief-stricken family members and friends of young Limerick people lost to suicide took a stand for mental health.Protesters entered the council chamber during this week’s Metropolitan District meeting and called for the local authority to take responsibility for the city’s worsening mental health crisis.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Banners calling for action and photographs of loved ones who died by suicide were held aloft as councillors were reminded of their duty of care to the people of Limerick.‘The Stand Up for Mental Health – Limerick’ campaign saw protesters demand the implementation of a proven mental health awareness programme into all Limerick City schools and the use of a council-owned vacant site as a permanent base for suicide patrols along the River Shannon.Sinn Féin councillor John Costelloe called on the Council to convene a citywide multi-agency task force to respond to the serious concerns regarding mental health and suicide in Limerick. The City North representative’s motion was greeted by a round of applause by protesters in the public gallery.“At least one person a day died by suicide in Ireland. It is a shamefully indictment on Irish society that this scandal continues unabated. My motion on mental health is an attempt to highlight this issue and to support those locally who are trying to move the powers that be to take action,” Cllr Costelloe declared.“There are some wonderful organisations who dedicate themselves to try make a difference. For instance more than 5,300 people have had face-to-face appointments with Pieta’s suicide-prevention service this year and that number is expected to rise to over 8,000 by this years end. However, many people don’t know anything about it until they are directly affected, so when it happens in their family they are completely shocked and they are taken aback by it.“My motion is a plea for Limerick City Council to wake up, sit up and get involved in fighting this insidious scourge advancing through our local communities. I would urge the council to set up this multi-agency task force to offer a holistic approach to fighting this horrible tragedy, lobby central government for realistic funds and show bereaved families and those currently suffering that City Hall stand with them,” he added.The motion was seconded by Sinn Féin councillor Sharon Benson, who expressed her sympathy with all those bereaved by suicide.Offering his support, Green Party councillor Sean Hartigan described the motion as “the most important to ever come before the Council”.Labour Party councillor Conor Sheahan maintained that volunteers and charities were doing the work that the government should be doing in addressing mental health.“We have a duty of care and we need to offer support to families,” he added.Social Democrats’ Elisa O’Donovan commended Cllr Costelloe on his motion.However, the City West representative said she could not support it as she believed the Council “did not have the experience to deal with the most vulnerable in our society”.“You’d feel differently if you were faced with this in your own family,” one protester heckled.“She’s not even from Limerick,” another roared.Fianna Fáil councillor Kieran O’Hanlon insisted that whatever needs to be done to tackle the issue, councillors would do.“We are not experts but anything we can do, we must do,” he said.Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler commended the protesters on their strength and bravery. He also agreed that early intervention and education were key in tackling mental health problems.A response read out from Limerick City and County Council stated: “‘Connecting for Life’ is a National Suicide Prevention Strategy, which is being implemented on a local/ regional basis. A Regional Suicide Prevention Steering Group has been established and is chaired by the HSE. This group includes representations from over 40 key service providers, sectors and communities.“Limerick City and County Council, along with An Garda Síochána, HSE, Public Health and a range of other agencies and groups such as Limerick Mental Health Association, sit on this steering group. They oversee the implementation of the objectives set out in the regional ‘Connecting for Life’ strategy and the national ‘Connecting for Life’ document.”center_img Advertisement Email Twitter Previous articleVicky considered refusing honorary UL doctorateNext articleSouthside Men’s Shed offered a new home Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more
