Bethard joins International Betting Integrity Association

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance 17th September 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Malta-based operator Bethard Group has become the latest member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA). The agreement gives Bethard access to the integrity watchdog’s monitoring and alert platform, and allows it to share suspicious activity reports with a network of other operator members. Malta-based operator Bethard Group has become the latest member of the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).The agreement gives Bethard access to the integrity watchdog’s monitoring and alert platform, and allows it to share suspicious activity reports with a network of other operator members.“We have once again proven our commitment to support the fight against the manipulation of sports,” Erik Skarp, chief executive of Bethard, said.“As a company we firmly believe that co-operation and collaboration is the only way to combat sports manipulation,” Skarp explained. “We have always done our best to build a strong partnership with industry stakeholders. Protecting our growing betting brands from manipulation is a core component of our corporate policy to ensure that our consumers are able to engage in a fair and safe betting market.“No other body has the combined scope and strength of the International Betting Integrity Association’s alert platform and policy engagement with sports and regulatory authorities to help facilitate that. Membership of the world’s leading integrity body corresponds with our vision to take Bethard to the top of the regulated sports betting market.”IBIA secretary general Khalid Ali described Bethard’s inclusion as another important landmark in the body’s growth, which would further cement its status as a key player in upholding sports betting integrity.“Our global monitoring and alert platform continues to expand and I am delighted to welcome Bethard to the association,” he added.Founded in 2005 as the European Sports Security Association, the body rebranded as the International Betting Integrity Association in June this year, to reflect its increasingly international focus.In July, Bethard was one of eight operators that received a fine from Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen for offering bets in the market on sporting events featuring a majority of participants under the age of 18.center_img Bethard joins International Betting Integrity Association Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Addresslast_img read more

Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 9th February, 2020 center_img Over the past 100 years, the stock market has created trillions of pounds of wealth for investors across the UK.However, some investors have fared much better than others. That’s because investing isn’t particularly easy. It can be quite challenging to pick the right stocks for long-term investment. Indeed, even the professionals get it wrong on a regular basis.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…But it has never been easier to invest in the markets that it is today. Online trading has pushed down costs, and now stockbrokers are fighting over each other to offer the best deals for clients.By taking advantage of these deals, investors can turn a relatively modest lump sum of £20,000 into a fortune of £1m in the long run.There are many ways you can invest this lump sum to make £1,000,000. The easiest strategy is to invest in a low-cost FTSE 250 tracker fund.How to make a millionThe past performance of the FTSE 250 is very impressive.Since its inception, the mid-cap index has returned around 12% per annum, including dividends. At that rate of return, you could double your investment in the index every six years.However, there are a handful of other companies that have produced even better returns.For example, shares in global distribution group Bunzl have returned around 14% per annum over the past decade. The company has been able to achieve this growth through a combination of organic expansion and bolt-on acquisitions.Meanwhile, investors in consumer goods giant Unilever have seen their investments grow by 15% per annum since 2016. And shareholders of construction equipment rental group Ashtead have seen a return of 41% per annum over the past decade.Finding companies that can generate mid-teens returns on your investment is difficult, but it is not impossible.One common traitOne common trait of all the above companies is the fact that they offer a unique service where size is critical. They can then use economies of scale to outperform the rest of their industry.Buying businesses that exhibit similar qualities, or just purchasing the companies above, could help you achieve similar returns on your investment over the next few decades.£20,000 invested at a rate of 15% per year would grow to be worth £1m within 27 years. That is assuming no additional money is added to the pot along the way. Additional contributions of just £50 a month would help you meet this lofty savings target two years earlier.Further contributions of £200 a month would get you to the £1m target in 22 years.ConclusionAs shown above, a strategy built around finding the market’s best growth and income stocks could help you create a seven-figure portfolio in just a few decades.This process may take time, but when saving for the future, it is better to take things slowly and find the right investments rather than rushing into high-risk stocks. Doing so could potentially cost you a lot of money if the trade goes wrong.

It takes place in the outskirts of Madrid on a 5,000 m2 plot. It is a single storey building and it has a 1,600 m2 built surface. Save this picture!© Luis H.

They are dyed in dark gray and contain, between them, vegetation areas that seem to climb towards the sky. The house´s façade show a spectacular organic view of the whole house and so even the hard concrete shows its most kind face. Save this picture!© Luis H. SegoviaThe back front of the house is totally opened towards the garden where the lounge, dining room, library, study and bedrooms are. In this façade the wide windows, the volumes set and the projections (made of concrete too enhance. These elements cover the several house´s porches. The large window of the main lounge hides itself automatically in order to make this stay completely opened to the exterior areas. Save this picture!© Luis H. SegoviaThe plot includes also an elegant garden, a small lake and a padel track. Save this picture!© Luis H. SegoviaThe ecological aspect is very in this A-cero´s work: the façade and the roof have the main ecological roles because they are covered with low consume vegetation.

A rich Indian man in La Habana was able to accumulate an important property asset in Vilanova, like this housing block that is known to be the Civil Guard station for decades, but also for hosting other social headquarters and relevant cultural entities.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliRegarding its architectural definition, this building has as its most peculiar feature that its interior load-bearing walls were executed as a sequence of arches on each of its three main floors. La Galera thus describes an absolutely atypical structural infrastructure for a multi-family residential building in the middle of the 19th century, where apart from a bearing perimeter façade, two longitudinal walls of three heights are constructed forming a large system of arches.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliOur proposal has been based on making these walls composed of arches visible, turning them into the focus of the house, and adding them value as structural rhythm. The dwelling of an approximate surface of 125m2 had a distribution with multiple orthogonal partitions that hid any evidence that denoted the presence of the supporting arches.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliSave this picture!ViewSave this picture!© Filippo PoliA radical change of organization has been the aim of the new distribution. The project places the kitchen at the entrance of the house and empties the thresholds of the arches to compose a new diaphanous space of living and kitchen and to blur the morphology of existing spaces.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliFurthermore, the design is made up of furniture pieces at different points of the house. There is a repetitive formal and material language with the black furnishings, betting on generating a noticeable contrast with the existing, giving an ephemeral nature in front of the structural system.Save this picture!© Filippo PoliSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Filippo PoliFinally, the project has introduced a random geometry with a suspended ceiling frame that joins the different interventions. This frame tries to break the original rigidity of the orthogonal grid of the dividers and the sequence of arches.

Awale Jama Salad comes out of hiding after Somali government intervention

first_img News March 2, 2021 Find out more SomaliaAfrica Help by sharing this information February 24, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders welcomed the news that the editor of privately-owned radio STN FM, Awale Jama Salad, has been able to come out of hiding and resume his normal life and work after intervention by the Transitional Federal Government (TFG).Awale Jama Salad, who has been arrested and threatened by the security services on several occasions, is now able to work without fear, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Minister of Information in the TFG, Mohammed Abdi Hayir, who intervened with the authorities in the semi-autonomous Puntland region, had told Reporters Without Borders during a telephone conversation on 8 December 2005 that he would act to ensure that Awale Jama Salad could come out of hiding. However, the organisation said it is concerned about repeated press freedom violations in Puntland. Three journalists on the privately-owned Radio Las-Anod were roughed up by members of vice-president Hassan Dahir Afqura’s guard on 10 December 2005. Station manager, Faysal Jama and journalists Adan Jamal Farajar and Abdiqani Haji Ise, were beaten when the vice-president was visiting Las-Anod, the western Puntland town. Abdiqani Haji Ise was hospitalised after sustaining a serious injury to his left hand._______________________________24.11.2005 – President asked to intercede on behalf of journalist forced into hiding in PuntlandReporters Without Borders voiced growing concern today about the unacceptable way the authorities in the autonomous northeastern region of Puntland have been treating radio STN editor Awale Jama Salad, who has been forced to go into hiding after being arrested and threatened several times by the police.The organisation has written to President Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed of Somalia’s transitional federal government (TFG) reminding him of his responsibilities “as guarantor of the rule of law, the safety of citizens and the free practice of journalism in Somalia” and pointing out that his influence is still decisive in Puntland, of which he is the former leader, and nothing is done there without his consent.“Under these circumstances, you will be held directly responsible if any misfortune befalls Awale Jama Salad,” Reporters Without Borders said in its letter. “It is therefore essential that you personally restore order to the Puntland police and give Awale Jama Salad clear assurances. It is unacceptable that a journalist living and working in the Somali president’s stronghold should have no choice but to go to prison or go into hiding.”Reporters Without Borders finally reminded President Ahmed that it wrote to him several times already this year about the lack of respect for press freedom in Puntland without ever getting a reply. “Next year will be decisive for a return to peace and stability in Somalia,” the letter concluded. “If nothing changes, the European Union’s financial and political assistance to the TFG should, in our view, be conditioned on an improvement in conditions for Somalis, particularly as regards their civil and political liberties.”Police in the city of Bossasso began searching for Awale Jama Salad in the last week of October, raiding his home and the homes of four of his friends. He has been in hiding since then. The police told his colleagues they wanted him to report to the police station for questioning because he had, they claimed, provided “dishonest information” to Reporters Without Borders and its partner organisation in Somalia, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ).In a joint statement on 18 October, the two organisations said they were appalled by the conditions in Bossasso prison, where Awale Jama Salad was arbitrarily detained for a second time and subjected to severe physical mistreatment at the end of September after criticising conditions in the jail during an earlier spell there.Awale Jama Salad and STN manager Abdisarak Shek Adun had been arrested on 30 June and held for nearly two weeks because of an interview with a candidate for the post of Bossasso mayor. The authorities also closed the station as a result of the interview.
