EveryMatrix partners beBettor to enhance compliance controls

Topics: Legal & compliance Strategy iGaming software supplier and white label solutions provider EveryMatrix has struck a partnership with compliance specialist beBettor as part of its efforts to improve its social responsibility controls and ultimately have the suspension of its operating licence lifted.beBettor is a start-up that has developed an API that can be integrated into partners’ sites to perform affordability checks on customers. It gathers information provided by the user and tracks their actions on a site with the API enabled, which it then cross-references with activity on other sites within a client’s network.With growing support for affordability checks becoming a key part of Gambling Commission licensees’ Know Your Customer processes, the start-up believes it could play a key role in helping tackle problem gambling.“Affordability and operators’ social responsibility towards customers is an industry-wide challenge that we are delighted to start solving with EveryMatrix in a collaborative way,” beBettor chief executive Harry Cott explained. “Given the average online gambler in the UK now has four accounts, isolated operator action will not sufficiently reduce gambling-related harm long-term,” Cott said. “That’s why we’re building a networked approach to understanding customers affordability, which will help beBettor operators power the next generation of their social responsibility policies and procedures for customer interaction.”EveryMatrix chief executive Ebbe Groes said the company was excited to be working with beBettor.“We believe it will help not only players on EveryMatrix brands but that this can help drive an industry-wide push for better affordability checks for the UK players,” Groes said. “Problem players will often have many accounts and the only way to spot and take action will be for us all to work together for a safer gambling experience.”The partnership comes after EveryMatrix last week had its UK operating licence suspended by the GB Gambling Commission. The regulator, which will now carry out a review into the supplier, said the decision was based on compliance activity at EveryMatrix, including an examination of its customer interaction framework.Shortly after the announcement, EveryMatrix pledged to use the review into its business to improve compliance procedures and processes across its business operations.

House at Pipers End / Níall McLaughlin Architects

Piper’s End is a hamlet supporting a mixed farming and commuting residential community. It is in the Green Belt zone around London. Local farming includes market gardening and bloodstock. The topography is very gently undulating but feels almost flat. This new house was given planning consent despite the zoning and the fact that it replaced a previous building of local historic importance. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThe client for this project is our Quantity Surveyor. He worked with the practice since its inception in 1990, doing all of out first projects until he moved on to greater things. This is the second house we have built for the family. Since the first one, he has travelled the world with his wife and daughter, working in Asia, Australia and the USA. He has collaborated with an impressive range of international architects. The family returned with a collection of travel souvenirs and they wanted a modern house around which to display their gatherings. Save this picture!© Nick KaneWe enjoyed the matter of fact arrangement of farm buildings in the area. Buildings, glasshouses and sheds, devoted to particular purposes, are set out side by side in a laconic, almost offhand fashion.  Things are juxtaposed in an ordered way relating to the demands of particular processes. The brick house is a couple of feet away from the wooden shed, which butts up to the open steel hay barn alongside the concrete byre. Buildings are stacked loosely like books on a shelf. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThis site is a long narrow enclosure with an orchard at one end and an open paddock at the other. You enter it from the side at one fixed point dictated by the old entrance. We chose to position the house so that it divides the site between the paddock and a smaller enclosed garden. New planting will reinforce the separation. Buildings were organised in a row, each doing something different, each made from different materials, each a slightly different length. They are lined up in parallel rows with one hard margin and one stepped edge where different sized blocks are sorted by length. We like to imagine that they might have been bought from a catalogue and set out using the simplest rule possible. The blocks are; Silver Birch, a wooden cabinet, a vitrine, a steel canopy, a concrete water trough. It is our intention that they should stand separately but interrelate in use. Save this picture!The wooden cabinet is on the north side and you enter through it. It is intended that it should screen the open space of the paddock from the person arriving. You go through a modest doorway into the stair hall. The rooms in the wooden box all service the building. They are staircases, bathrooms, utility rooms and so on. As you move through, you come upon the open space of the larger box, the vitrine. Principal rooms open off a double height space, which forms the centre of the house. A substantial glazed screen faces the garden terrace. It frames wide views of the paddock to the south. So you discover the site by passing through the building. The glass wall is shaded by the next element, a steel shed-like canopy with a perforated roof. The canopy covers a terrace that is contained by a concrete pool. The pool reflects light into the house. Ponies and horses in the paddock will use it. They can drink from it and it forms a natural barrier to prevent them from walking into the house.Project gallerySee allShow less’Wolf D.

The option of online and downloadable versions of the report was also a positive.The Parish Church of St Luke, Great Ilford was considered “a model for best practice” for charities with an income between £100,000 and £500,000. The judges deemed that, for a charity with a turnover of less than £130,000, St Luke’s demonstrated “excellent use of web technology providing clear and simple financial information to donors”.The joint winners of the final category, charities with an income of less than £100,000, A-CET and the Chesterfield Philharmonic Choir, were both commended by the judges for demonstrating that limited resource was no barrier to high quality financial reporting on-line. The judges felt that a number of the larger charities could learn from these smaller entrants.center_img Graham Ward, Chairman of the Judging Panel commented: “High quality financial reporting is as much of an imperative for the charitable sector as it is for the commercial world. Charities depend on donors in the same way that businesses depend on investors and both of these communities depend on high quality financial information when making decisions about whether to provide funding. “The best reports can communicate to potential donors the spirit of the charities themselves and can really help to cement trust between charitable organisations and their donors. This is why we recommend that any future Statement of Recommended Practice should include better ./guidance on how to create transparent online financial reports.”The awards were divided into different categories:Plan International UK won in the top 100 fundraising charities category. The website scored very high technical marks and was one of the few to have hyperlinked content in HTML as well as a downloadable PDF.The Citizens Advice Bureau took first place in the category for charities with an income over £2 million. The judges felt that the layout and design were clear and accessible. Imaginative pull out sections, combined with a clear articulation of achievements, also impressed. Graham Ullett, Head of Marketing at CAF commented: “CAF’s sponsorship of these Awards alongside the ICAEW forms part of our objective to raise standards of online reporting to aid donors and, in so doing, assist charities.” Howard Lake | 29 November 2006 | News Tagged with: Awards Digital Financelast_img read more

“The end of the f***ing world” soon to be Netflix’s next big thing

The show is super dark, but offers many moments for laughter and the acting is superb.  Based on the graphic novel by Charles Forsman this show might rival the cult following of Stranger Things.The eight-part series is a psychotic romantic thriller that revolves around the unfortunate lives of 17-year-olds Alyssa (Jessica Barden, “Penny Dreadful”) and James (Alex Lawther from “Black Mirror”) who deliver thrilling performances.The show’s dark humor is similar to other alternative British teen comedies like “Misfits.” It is visually reminiscent of indie movies like “Frank” and “Natural Born Killers.” Each episode is short with the longest episode tapping out at around 22 minutes. The writing is so good that you don’t notice when one episode is over and another one begins. The scenes blend flawlessly, but are jarringly different at the same time.The show starts out with two teenagers who bond over their similarly horrid parental units, but it doesn’t stay that way.Concise narration from James and Alyssa give the viewer much-needed insight into the characters’ background.James delivers his narrative in a to-the-point inner monologue, which matches the persona of his character. His stoic staring off into the distances demeanor is roaringly different from the drawn-out moody attitude of Alyssa who continuously alienates everyone she meets. Her innermost thoughts reveal her sour personality is a facade to hide her vulnerability.The quirky romance between self-described psychopath James and an annoyingly, petulant Alyssa begins with James telling Alyssa to “f*ck off.”Alyssa decides she could fall in love with James, so the two begin to date. And James wants to kill Alyssa, so he goes along with the relationship. After all, he thinks he’s a psychopath.Alyssa runs away to her boyfriend’s house following a nasty incident at home and the pair decides to take a random road trip.  They steal James’s dad’s car, his most prized possession; and the duo is off. James agrees to the trip because he thinks it will give him a chance to murder Alyssa. Carrying around a hunting knife given to him by his father, he wonders “what she would sound like when I killed her.”When the teens crash the car, things take a sharp turn for the worse. Every episode after the fourth gets darker and more intense as James and Alyssa dig themselves into more and more trouble legally and emotionally. Cameo appearances include Gemma Whelan (“Game of Thrones”) as a lovable empathetic cop and Jonathan Aris (“Sherlock”) as a bad guy.Verdict:TEOTFW is a show that you wish would have a second season, even though you know it probably shouldn’t because it ends perfectly. The dark thriller will suck you in and leave you wondering how you sat on your couch and consumed an entire series in three hours. 9.5/10 Facebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

CFPB Dispels Myths Surrounding New Servicing Rules and QM Rule

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Brian Honea CFPB Credit Union National Association Mortgage Servicing Rules QM Rule Richard Cordray 2016-02-23 Brian Honea Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)’s regulatory changes to the mortgage industry, namely the qualified mortgage (QM) rule and the new mortgage servicing rules adopted in January 2014, were met with a wave of criticism.Those criticisms were unfounded, according to CFPB Director Richard Cordray in an address given Tuesday at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). The relationship between CUNA and the CFPB has been a rocky one, with CUNA claiming that credit unions should not fall under the CFPB’s oversight because they did not play a role in the 2008 financial crisis. Credit unions have complained that the CFPB’s oversight has resulted in higher compliance costs which in turn has resulted in fewer financial products available to their consumers.During his speech, Cordray defended the Bureau’s oversight of credit unions in addition to dispelling several myths surrounding the mortgage-related regulatory changes enacted by the CFPB since the Bureau’s inception four and a half years ago.In particular, he stated that the QM rule, or the “ability to repay” rule, was derided by many who called it the “quitting mortgage” rule and claimed that volume would plummet while mortgage costs would double. Critics of the QM rule claimed that no one would make any non-QM loans because of the risk of litigation, Cordray said. Still others claimed that smaller lenders would be unable to offer mortgage loans under the new regulatory environment.“We know change is hard and we understood the concerns, but at the Consumer Bureau, we never bought into the prophecies of doom and gloom,” Cordray said. “And as it turns out, we were right. The first set of mortgage rules have been in place for more than two years, and none of those pessimistic forecasts came to pass. In 2014, year one of our new rules, home purchase mortgages went up 4.6 percent, according to the authoritative HMDA (Home Mortgage Disclosure Act) data, and for jumbo loans, which are often non-QM loans, the increase was even higher. Even more relevant to this audience, the credit unions have thrived in this new and improved mortgage market. In fact, credit unions originated 39 percent more mortgage loans for home purchases in the first nine months of 2015 than the same period of 2014, according to the latest CUNA Mutual Group Report, which is prepared by CUNA’s own economists.”Richard CordrayCordray noted that the share of mortgage lending by credit unions is growing and that those institutions that have focused on compliance burdens have “overlooked the positive benefits of the rules.” Since the CFPB has build out a vigorous supervision program over non-bank lenders nad mortgage servicers, credit unions are being put on a level playing field for the first time, Cordray said.“Instead of attacking or resisting the CFPB, you should be supporting and speaking up for what it is doing for the best and most responsible financial institutions such as credit unions, that compete based on personal focus and strong customer service,” he said.Also, a “cottage industry” of lawyers and consultants expressed fear that widespread litigation against lenders would result from the passage of the QM rule, according to Cordray.“But now, more than two years later, so far as we can tell, not a single case has been brought against a mortgage lender for making a non-QM loan,” Cordray said.Click here to view Cordray’s entire speech. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Share Save Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Recently, It was informed by the DG Prisoners (to the High Powered Committee of the Delhi High Court ) that the jail staff was declared “Front Line Workers” and thus was directed to be vaccinated in the First Phase of Vaccine Drive against COVID-19. “Members of the Committee have deliberated upon this issue and have resolved that all the jail inmates as well as jail staff are required to be vaccinated at the earliest so that the spread of COVID-19 inside the jail premises can be curtailed.” The Committee resolved. Further, dealing with a PIL filed regarding the state of prisoners amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday (May 6) issued a slew of directions. The Bench directed the Jail Department and the Principal Secretary, Home / Prison, State of Uttarakhand, to ensure that the number of the prisoners being inoculated is drastically increased. The Government of Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir recently informed the High Court that it was taking all relevant steps to ensure that all prisoners, whether convicted or under-trial, are inoculated against the Covid-19 virus. Also, the Orissa High Court recently passed significant directions to ensure that all inmates lodged in prisons of the State are vaccinated against the deadly Covid-19 virus. A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Dr. S. Muralidhar and Justice BP Routray was hearing two petitions concerning various issues persistent in the jails in Orissa. The Gauhati High Court also asked the Assam Government to file its response on a suo moto PIL concerning jail inmates, who are allegedly not being vaccinated in the state. Inter alia, the Division Bench at the Orissa High Court asked the State Government to work in coordination with the State Legal Services Authority and take time-bound steps for the remission of the sentences of prisoners found eligible for that benefit.
