ATG rapped over self-exclusion ad failures

first_imgLegal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden ATG rapped over self-exclusion ad failures AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Konsumentverket, the Swedish consumer ombudsman (KO), has warned former horse racing monopoly AB Trav och Galopp (ATG) over advertising messages sent to self-excluded players.The KO said that ATG sent direct marketing to 77 individuals who had self-excluded from gambling through the Spelpaus national self-exclusion tool, as well as more than 1,900 marketing messages sent to people who had excluded themselves from receiving direct marketing.In addition, the KO found that ATG did not clearly indicate age restrictions on its products in some of its advertisements.As a result, the ombudsman warned ATG that if it were to violate the rules regarding self-exclusion again, it will face a SEK3m (£255,000/€285,000/$322,000) fine, while it will face a SEK1.5m fine if it fails to include age limits in promotional material.The KO said it started the investigation in February 2020 after receiving reports of self-excluded players receiving ATG ads and promotions, which is forbidden by Chapter 15, Section 2 of the Swedish Gambling Act.The KO also looked into whether ATG had correctly specified age limits, a detail that ATG said was reported to the ombudsman by rival operator Kindred.ATG said that the messages to players who had used Spelpaus occurred through error and that they notified gambling regulator Spelinspektionen of this, as well as taking steps to ensure it does not happen again, when it occurred.“We have made mistakes and accept the Consumer Agency’s decision,” Katarina Widman, ATG’s Chief Commercial Officer, said.The operator added, however, that these messages to players were not ads, but merely information about player accounts.ATG also said that its advertising messages that lacked age limits were exclusively text messages that were sent only to existing players who were verified as being 18 or older and  said the lack of an explicit mention of age limits was again due to an error.“Since ATG has directed gambling ads directly to players who were temporarily suspended from gambling, the marketing is considered inappropriate and ATG should therefore be prohibited from sending direct advertisements regarding gambling products to this category of consumers,” the KO said. “ATG’s statement that the direct mail was sent primarily for information purposes does not change KO’s assessment.”The KO noted that the fact ATG was confident all players receiving the ad were at least 18 contributed to the potential financial penalty being low.“We reviewed our controls following the incidents,” Widman said. “[Now] in all cases we have further strengthened our controls to ensure that these events are not repeated,” Widman said.Yesterday (15 June), Spelinspektionen set out plans to launch a new marketing campaign to promote the Spelpaus self-exclusion scheme, after admitting that players’ awareness of the system was limited. At present, around 52,000 are signed up with Spelpaus.se.

How Vietnam contained the pandemic

first_imgThe coronavirus pandemic has started to reveal stark differences in the emergency responses of countries all over the globe. The U.S. now has the most COVID-19 cases in the world after a slow and uncoordinated response by federal and state governments. Shortages of ventilators, ICU beds and personal protective equipment have put pressure on a medical system that was already struggling to meet basic needs. Especially in rural areas and communities of color, hospital closings and shortages of staff and funding have put many at an elevated risk for the ravages of COVID-19.In Chicago, while about 32 percent of the city’s residents are Black, over 70 percent of those who have died from the virus are Black.Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are reportedly impersonating medical staff in order to detain undocumented workers, increasing the terror in im/migrant communities and further discouraging migrants from seeking out testing and medical careNevertheless, despite the vast wealth and resources at the disposal of superpowers like the U.S., some less developed countries are faring better, including ones under onerous U.S. sanctionsCuba, China and India’s Kerala state, all led by communist parties that attach great importance to public health and the needs of the people, have much lower rates of infection than the U.SThe Socialist Republic of Vietnam has also mounted a highly successful response, perhaps more so than anywhere else in the world. By April 6, Vietnam, with a population of nearly 100 million people, had just 245 confirmed cases and zero deaths. (worldometers.info/coronavirus/)New York City, the global capital of high finance, has nearly 70,000 confirmed cases and close to 2,500 deaths out of a population of 8.6 million. What could Vietnam, a country the U.S. tried to wipe off the map 50 years ago, be doing that the wealthiest city in the world’s wealthiest country is not doingAn article published on March 30 by the World Economic Forum, by no means a left-wing group, reveals some answersVietnam’s University of Science and Technology has developed a fast and affordable test kit that costs about $15 and returns results within an hour. Now 20 countries around the world are seeking to order tens of thousands of themVietnam has also focused on effective, nonpharmaceutical methods to contain the virus. On Feb. 1, it suspended flights to China and decided to keep schools closed after the Lunar New Year break. It then instituted a 21-day quarantine of Vinh Phuc province north of Hanoi, where a large number of residents had worked in Wuhan, China, the initial epicenter of the outbreakIt has since mandated 14-day quarantines for everyone arriving in the country and cancelled all foreign flights. Quarantine centers have been set up on the edges of cities providing 100 percent of the medical care, food and shelter for those in quarantine, including foreign visitorsA British citizen staying at a quarantine center in Son Tay said about the experience: “Suddenly it all becomes very human, we’re guests in a country doing their best to protect themselves and are extending us that courtesy. Such is the good nature of Vietnam. Outside, everything is peaceful. The location is quiet, the soldiers work tirelessly to sterilize the rooms daily, log our temperature and clear out our bins. … So far, this feels more like a holiday camp than a quarantine. In our room, we share snacks, fruit, and start getting deliveries from loved ones.” (VNExpress International, March 17)These quarantine centers are also available to people who have not traveled abroad. When cases appear in a neighborhood, the entire street is sanitized and the residents put under a two-week quarantine, with the government providing free, fresh food and medical care.Susan Schnur, a member of Workers World Party who travelled in Vietnam from March 5 to 17, reported that screenings in the airports were much more thorough and stringent than in the U.S. Hand sanitizer was almost everywhere, even in rural areas. People were “chipper” about following the measures set out by the government to contain the virusVietnam has also used social media and information technology to combat the spread of the virus. Almost 90 percent of the people have either a smartphone or a mobile phone. The government uses an app and other channels to swiftly alert the public to new cases and areas with potential transmission, to help people get tested and to provide scientifically accurate, up-to-date information on best practices to reduce exposure.The Vietnamese Ministry of Health produced a catchy music video to inform people of proper handwashing techniques and other measures to reduce transmission“Imagine a government that’s actually good on social media and inspires a TikTok movement. And, no, screaming all caps in Twitter doesn’t count,” wrote Linh Dao Smooke of the website hackernoon.com.Between 2002 and 2018, 45 million Vietnamese people were lifted out of poverty. From 1990 to 2015, life expectancy rose from 71 to 76 years. Vietnam now has a higher vaccination rate than the U.S. Medical care is inexpensive, with the government paying 100 percent for poor people and ethnic minorities in disadvantaged areasVietnam sets an example for both developing and wealthy countries fighting COVID-19. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Where do penguins go during the inter-breeding period? Using geolocation to track their winter dispersion of the macaroni penguin

first_imgAlthough penguins are key marine predators from the Southern Ocean, their migratory behaviour during the inter-nesting period remains widely unknown. Here, we report for the first time, to our knowledge, the winter foraging movements and feeding habits of a penguin species by using geolocation sensors fitted on penguins with a new attachment method. We focused on the macaroni penguin Eudyptes chrysolophus at Kerguelen, the single largest consumer of marine prey among all seabirds. Overall, macaroni penguins performed very long winter trips, remaining at sea during approximately six months within the limits of the Southern Ocean. They departed from Kerguelen in an eastward direction and distributed widely, over more than 3.10(6) km(2). The penguins spent most of their time in a previously unrecognized foraging area, i.e. a narrow latitudinal band (47-49 degrees S) within the central Indian Ocean (70-110 degrees E), corresponding oceanographically to the Polar Frontal Zone. There, their blood isotopic niche indicated that macaroni penguins preyed mainly upon crustaceans, but not on Antarctic krill Euphausia superba, which does not occur at these northern latitudes. Such winter information is a crucial step for a better integrative approach for the conservation of this species whose world population is known to be declining.last_img read more

Tendeka partners with TGT to combat sand control failures in wells

first_img Tendeka and TGT have teamed up for ‘industry-first’ solution to combat sand control failures. (Credit: Tendeka) Tendeka, an independent global completions service company, has partnered with diagnostic systems specialist TGT to help mitigate the sand control failure in wells.Known as ‘Find Fix Confirm’, the remedial sand control collaboration will see the utilisation of the TGT’s Sand Flow product to exactly identify the locations of sand ingress within the wellbore.Upon identifying accurate locations, the partners will use Tendeka’s Filtrex thru-tubing sand control system to quickly repair the damage.The Tendeka’s Filtrex system is a ‘one-trip’ remedial solution designed to efficiently restore sand-free production by performing sand cleanout and chemical treatments during the deployment of the live well.Sand issues account for 10% of all shut-in wells in mature basinsTendeka said that sand issues account for 10% of all shut-in wells in mature basins. It is either due to failure of the existing downhole sand control or onset of sand production due to depletion of pressure or water production.Tendeka Advanced Completions director Paul Lynch said: “The management and control of sand production is an inherent problem in the oil and gas industry. Often, the first indication of sand issues downhole will be as a result of detrimental effects that can occur at the surface such as fill-in separators or erosional damage to pipework, ultimately resulting in a shut-in well.“Our Find Fix Confirm sand remediation service addresses both issues to offer a more effective, intervention-based solution.”Designed to accurately locate sand entry to the wellbore, the TGT’s Sand Flow system provides a qualitative sand count and identifies problem zones.TGT chief marketing officer Ken Feather said: “Our Sand Flow diagnostics are powered by Chorus technology, which captures and decodes the acoustic signature generated by sand particles entering the wellbore to reveal sand ingress locations and sand count.“Equipped with that information, Filtrex can be targeted to repair the breach, then Chorus can be deployed again to confirm that the breach is fixed. Overall, Find Fix Confirm enables better use of resources and more reliable sand control outcomes.”In March 2020, Aker BP has issued a Letter of Intent to Tendeka to supply sand screens and FloSure autonomous inflow control devices (AICDs) to its offshore fields over the next three years. The collaboration aims to accurately identify the location of sand ingress within the wellbore last_img read more
