Belgium’s licensed igaming operators are facing a number of significant restrictions on how they may advertise their offerings, with a package of controls approved in October 2018 coming into force this Saturday (June 1).From June 1, online gaming operators will no longer be permitted to advertise their offerings on Belgian television. This covers A+ and B+ gaming licence holders, or casino and gaming hall licensees.These operators will only be allowed to advertise via sites licensed by the Belgian Gaming Commission (BGC), or via personalised advertising, which uses user behaviour and interest data to target players.Sportsbook licensees, or F1+ licence holders, will only be permitted to advertise on television after 8pm, and may not advertise around live sports broadcasts.In addition, operators will be prohibited from using celebrities or athletes to promote their sites, and a cap on bonus offers will be introduced.“This ban is a step forward for the limitation of advertising for games of chance,” BGC president Etienne Marique said.The move is the latest in a series of planned or implemented restrictions on gambling advertising introduced in Europe this year. Italy has already brought into force a blanket ban on gambling advertising, with exceptions for land-based gaming venues.There is also a loophole that allows sites to provide information about gambling, which has already been hailed as an opportunity for affiliates by Gambling.com Group.Elsewhere, Sweden has moved quickly to crack down on what it believes is excessive advertising by its newly licensed operators, with a government committee to explore the practicalities of a total ban. Spain’s Socialist Worker’s Party (PSOE) is also looking to introduce a number of new restrictions on gambling advertising, with the party in the process of forming a government following April’s general election.UK operators, meanwhile, will introduce a ban on advertising before and during live sport broadcasts from the start of the 2019-20 football season. GVC Holdings, owner of the Ladbrokes and Coral brands, is pushing for a total TV ad ban, however. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Email Address

The recent stock market crash means that many FTSE 100 shares now trade at prices last seen during the financial crisis. In the near term, many sectors and businesses could experience exceptionally difficult trading conditions. Lockdown measures may lead to reduced sales that cause investor sentiment to decline.However, by taking a long-term view of the stock market’s prospects it is possible to capitalise on its low valuations. The FTSE 100 has a track record of recovery and offers the prospect of diversifying across numerous companies. So this could enable you to access a favourable risk/reward opportunity over the coming years.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…Margin of safetyAs mentioned, some FTSE 100 stocks now trade at levels last seen over a decade ago. Investors are understandably concerned about the prospects for the economy during an unprecedented crisis. In the short run, sentiment could worsen should news regarding coronavirus deteriorate, or fail to improve.However, it has always been difficult to ascertain when share prices will reach their lowest ebb during downturns and recessions. Just look at when the FTSE 100 reached its lowest price level in the 1987 crash, during the dotcom crisis and in the financial crisis. It happened when many investors felt things would worsen before they improved from an economic perspective.Therefore, it is difficult to find the best time to buy stocks in the current situation. But through buying high-quality companies today while their prices offer wide margins of safety, you can take advantage of their long-term recovery potential.Recovery potentialJust as it is difficult to know when the FTSE 100’s price level will reach its lowest point, assessing when a long-term recovery will take hold is also challenging. The economy’s performance generally lags investor sentiment. And this means buying stocks when their prospects are uncertain could be a sound move.The FTSE 100 has a solid track record of recovering from its worst bear markets and corrections. Of course, such an outcome cannot be guaranteed in the coming years. But it seems to be highly likely based on past performance. As such, buying companies with solid balance sheets and strong cash flow now, and holding them for the long run, could be a worthwhile strategy.DiversificationBuying and holding a small number of shares may be tempting to many investors. After all, selecting the biggest bargains in the FTSE 100 may prove to be a highly successful strategy. But it also means that risks are high. For example, should one stock in a highly-concentrated portfolio experience poor financial performance it would cause a significant decline in the overall performance of your holdings.Therefore, diversifying across a range of FTSE 100 shares is key. That means buying businesses that operate in varied geographies and industries. Do so and it could improve your risk/reward prospects. It could also improve your financial future, and increase your capacity to capitalise on the low valuations that are present across the FTSE 100. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Alan M. Gates, rector of St. Paul’s Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, to succeed the Rt. Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE as the 16th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The electing convention took place at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston.In order to be elected, a candidate needed to receive a simple majority of votes from both the clergy and lay delegates, voting separately as “orders,” on the same balloting round. Gates secured election on the fourth ballot, receiving 157 clergy votes and 188 lay votes, with 145 and 164 needed, respectively, for election.There was a delay in the proceedings after the third ballot had been cast because an error was discovered in the first ballot’s lay vote tally. The corrected results for ballot one were posted, and ballots two and three were then deemed invalid. Fourth ballot results and the election were announced at 3:40 p.m.Gates’s election must now receive consent from a majority of the Episcopal Church’s diocesan bishops and a majority of its dioceses. Pending that consent, the bishop-elect’s consecration is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Sept. 13 at the Agganis Arena at Boston University, with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori presiding.“To return to the Diocese of Massachusetts a quarter century after my ordination to the priesthood there will be a genuine delight. To be called to do so as bishop-elect is an unimagined honor and a privilege beyond the telling,” Gates said in a statement following the election. “I am humbled to follow the episcopate of Bishop Tom Shaw who has led the diocese with grace and courage for 20 years.”The other six candidates were:the Rev. Holly Lyman Antolini, rector of St. James’s Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts;the Rev. Timothy E. Crellin, vicar of St. Stephen’s Church in Boston;the Rev. Ronald Culmer, rector of St. Clare’s Church in Pleasanton, California;the Rev. Ledlie Laughlin, rector of St. Peter’s Church in Philadelphia;the Rev. Canon Mally Lloyd, canon to the ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts; andthe Rev. Sam Rodman, project manager for Campaign Initiatives for the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.“Alan is a skilled pastor and he has an appreciation for the complexity of the Diocese of Massachusetts. I have real confidence in his ability to lead this diocese forward with creativity and dedication. It will be a pleasure working with him in these next months,” Shaw said following the election.“It was a long day, but it was worth taking that extra procedural time,” Shaw said of the tallying correction made during the balloting process. “I was impressed with people’s desire to make sure everything was in order.”Shaw became the 15th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts in January 1995. In preparation for retirement, he plans to resign his office at the time of the bishop-elect’s consecration in September.The Diocese of Massachusetts, established in 1784, is among the Episcopal Church’s oldest and largest, in terms of baptized membership, and comprises 183 parishes, missions, chapels and chaplaincies in eastern Massachusetts.Gates, 56, has been the rector of St. Paul’s Church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, since 2004. He is a graduate of Middlebury College and undertook graduate studies at Georgetown University. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1988 and served congregations in the Episcopal dioceses of Massachusetts, Western Massachusetts and Chicago prior to his call to Ohio. He and his spouse, Patricia J. Harvey, live in Shaker Heights, Ohio, and have two children.The bishop-elect’s full statement and biography are available here. Ted Thomas Martin says: April 10, 2014 at 12:10 pm Well he certainly looks like a bishop, congratulations.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 The John Land Apopka Community Trust announced today that Richard Anderson resigned as its President on April 27, 2016.John Ricketson, who has served as Vice President for the Trust, was named interim President.Other Board Actions:The Trust Board appointed three new Board members; Bill Arrowsmith, former Apopka Commissioner; Johnny Land, son of former Mayor John Land; and Robert Manley, former Apopka Chief of Police.The Board also nominated Michelle Hinden. Hinden is an attorney in Apopka and is expected to join the Trust’s Board at the next meeting.The Board approved two $500 contributions. One to the Apopka High School Debate to help cover the cost of traveling to the 2016 National Speech & Debate Tournament in Utah. The other grant went to the Apopka Little league to help defray costs associated with hosting the Little League Regional Championships in July.A committee was established by the Board and charged with drafting a policy with specific criteria to be used to evaluate future funding requests. The committee is expected to present its first draft at the next Board meeting which is scheduled for July 13, 2016.It has been a tumultuous stretch of weeks for Anderson. On April 5th, Anderson was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run incident in Lake County. Later in April the victim of that incident named him in a lawsuit, and it was learned that the Florida Highway Patrol listed him as a person-of-interest in a criminal investigation regarding the same incident. Yesterday a warrant for his arrest was issued, and Anderson turned himself in to authorities. He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and tampering with evidence.The Board was not aware of the April 5th incident or the resulting lawsuit until word surfaced in the media in May, according to David Rankin, Secretary for the Trust.The John Land Apopka Community Trust Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded on February 8th, 2013 in honor of Mayor John Land to serve the greater Apopka communityAccording to its website, its mission is ‘to serve the greater Apopka community and its citizens through philanthropic funding and encouragement, scholastic achievement through scholarships and sponsorship, city and community betterment and development, and to help give support to worthwhile charitable needs.’Anyone wanting to apply for funding can do so on the Trust’s website.To date, the Trust’s primary fundraising has been on a project-by-project basis. Currently it is “selling” bricks to provide funding for the statues of Mayor Land. More on that project here.The Trust is a Public Charity and is subject to Section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. While it works closely with The City of Apopka and other governmental entities, it operates independently of those entities, and is governed by a Board of Directors.

Dungeness beach is a classic example of ‘Non-Plan’ and the houses that populate the beach have developed through improvisation and bodge. This scheme develops this tradition in a way that responds to the drama and harshness of the landscape.El Ray is part of a group of five beach houses located immediately to the east of the huge Dungeness A power station. The original house consisted of a 19th century railway carriage with flimsy lean tos to the north and south. It was in extremely poor condition and too small to accommodate our clients and their growing family. We were asked by our clients to increase the accommodation area by approximately 50%, and dramatically improve the environmental performance of the house.Save this picture!Section and PlanThe new house incorporates the old railway carriage inside a highly insulated timber structure. The carriage forms the centre point of the main living area and accommodates the kitchen. A fully glazed southern elevation gives views out over the channel and a series of smaller slot windows on the other elevations give focused views of the adjacent lighthouse, coastguard station and nuclear power station.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesThe sloping roof deck acts as an observation platform with extraordinary 360 degree views of the beach and the sea. The plan incorporates two courtyards to provide shelter from the constant wind.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesEnvironmental PerformanceEnvironmental control is achieved through a combination of super insulation, passive solar gain, cross ventilation and a wind turbine.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesThe high levels of insulation in the walls, roof and floor ensure that heat loss from the building is minimal and very little energy is required for heating, lighting and ventilation. External glazing consists of a combination of double-glazed, low ‘E’, argon- filled frameless fixed lights and thermally-broken, aluminium sliding doors. The structural timber frame is constructed from lightweight engineered timber I-Joists, braced inside and out with a sheathing material manufactured entirely from wood waste. The insulation between the I-joists and studs is made from recycled newspaper. The external cladding and decking is made from an FSC certified hardwood called Itauba and the internal wall linings, floors and all joinery are constructed from FSC certified birch plywood.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesA canopy projects out over the south deck to shade the living areas from the high summer sun, but allows the low winter sun to warm the house. When necessary a wood-burning stove, using drift wood from the beach, is used to supplement the passive solar gain in the winter months and in extremely cold conditions electric under floor heating, powered by the wind turbine, will heat the two bedrooms and the bathroom.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesIt is anticipated that the during the year the wind turbine will generate more electricity than the house will consume, meaning that the house can be run at carbon negative. The client intends to sell any surplus electricity generated by the wind turbine back to the National Grid.Save this picture!ElevationsProject gallerySee allShow lessPassion House M1 / Arhitekt 11Selected ProjectsBoulevards in Paris: A Mathematical Success?Architecture News Share Houses CopyHouses•Kent, United Kingdom 2008 CopyAbout this officeSimon Conder AssociatesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKentMies van der Rohe AwardHousesUnited KingdomPublished on August 19, 2013Cite: “El Ray / Simon Conder Associates” 19 Aug 2013.
