Gaming operators may be concerned that the watchdog was reportedly pushing for operators found to have broken the law to be permanently excluded from the Dutch market. Kansspelautoriteit told iGamingBusiness.com that it will not comment on the ‘bad actor’ clause until the regulatory approach had been finalised.Kansspelautoriteit’s Jan Erik van der Werff (pictured) said he was not concerned that operators are increasingly ignoring Dutch laws despite a number of fines being handed out in the last few months.“The recently handed-out fines are a result of an adaptation of the enforcement regime in 2017,” he said.“We act on online gambling specifically targeting the Dutch market. We don’t have signs operators are increasingly ignoring Dutch law, but of course we keep an eye out.”Meanwhile, MRG has joined Betsson in casting doubt on the likelihood of a ‘bad actor’ clause being introduced. MRG was fined by Kansspelautoriteit last month for failing to block Dutch gamblers, but immediately launched an appeal, claiming most operators do not practice IP blocking.MRG CEO Per Norman told iGamingBusiness.com: “Since most gaming operators do not practice IP blocking that would mean that very few operators will be able to operate in the Netherlands during the first period of licences.“That will of course severely hit the channelisation which, from my opinion, is the most important objective with a local regulation. It is most likely also setting aside the EU’s regulations on free trade.”Norman added that his company is “very much looking forward to see the Netherlands becoming a regulated market” and suggested it will have the benefit of being able to learn from the experiences of the UK, Sweden and Denmark regulators.“In Sweden we are right now in the first part of the licensing process where all operators are welcome to apply, irrespective of previous presence or non-presence in the market,” Norman said.“That is fair play. My advice would be to secure a close cooperation and dialogue with the industry in order to make the regulation effective from the very beginning.”While the lower house of the Dutch parliament approved the Remote Gaming Bill in 2016, it is still awaiting Senate approval.In June, the country’s coalition government stated its intention to push ahead with the process, with the aim of introducing new regulations by 2020.

8th January 2019 | By Josephine Watson Finance Email Address Topics: Finance The season of change is well underway in the US, and new entrants are vying to reap the huge opportunities of regulated sports betting. Fraud, however, poses a serious and increasing threat in this developing environment.But there are four simple rules that potential stakeholders can use to protect themselves from unnecessary risk and lay solid foundations for success, according to Scott Olson and Jon Karl from fraud experts iovation. Meet regulatory requirementsRobust KYC checks, self-exclusion procedures and geolocation technology are the minimum standard for getting licensed and doing business in the US. Sports betting being rolled out on a state-by-state basis has heightened the importance of having an accurate and robust system for identifying where players are located in the US relative to other regulated markets.The pair say some sports betting operators are seeing as much as 90% of their bets coming through their mobile apps, making the channel paramount to regulatory compliance Stateside. It can take advantage of the geolocation information from the phone and is therefore considerably more accurate. Streamline the player experiencePlayers must be able to open an account and make deposits, bets and withdrawals frictionlessly. Authorization and authentication also need to be consistent.“You should be able to do the same thing at login that you do if you’re making a withdrawal, and some of these controls should be in the hands of the player,” says Olson.These interactions come with fraud risk, which iovation addresses using technology built into mobile apps. Olson says “You can use facial or fingerprint recognition or more traditional methods to authenticate your customer, all while injecting fraud intelligence so that you can make the right decisions in real time.” Protect player accountsCreate a system that both authenticates the user and flags risks, such as whether devices or users have a history of fraud. New US entrants are focused on marketing and operational compliance, says Olsen, placing them at greater risk than more experienced international operators: “There’s going to be a lot of predatory behavior directed at businesses and they need to wrap that into dealing with regulatory requirements, player experience and account protection.” Learn from your peersAs well as learning best practice from European counterparts, interaction with US peers already working in sports betting is valuable too. Karl points to the need to have the right tools to mitigate risks associated with sharing data across different regulatory and privacy frameworks.Iovation’s platforms for sharing data on confirmed fraud are designed so that information can be submitted identifying customers using a device with a bad reputation, who can be blocked. Karl adds: “We also host a community on our system, FraudForce, for sharing information in real time and data on specific fraud problems. We facilitate that with physical user groups too.”Jon Karl is executive vice-president of corporate development and co-founder at iovation, a TransUnion Company. He develops technology and information partnerships.Scott Olson is vice-president of product marketing at iovation, focusing on understanding and supporting the most pressing customer needs.

The Sepang House is defined by a large sheltering roof with deep overhangs, shaded terraces and balconies along its edges. It uses raw concrete, bricks and wood to develop a material language that echoes its tropical setting. Different materials are used to distinguish different elements of the house. For example, raw exposed concrete is used for all external walls, bricks for spine walls that runs along the centre of the house, and timber for roof structures, ceilings and the floor. All other surfaces are plastered and painted white. This approach to materiality creates a richness of texture in the house – an interesting background for contemporary family life.Save this picture!© Marc TeySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marc TeyThe design of the house is driven by the desire for the main living areas to face the cool and shaded north direction and the garden. In order to achieve this, spaces are organized along a pair of central brick spine walls that runs east and west. Staircases are placed between these walls. Main spaces such as living, dining, guest and master bedrooms organized to the north of the spine walls, whereas the kitchen and other bedrooms to the south. Openings in the spine and multiple double height volumes create opportunities for visual and acoustic connections within the house and outdoors, making the house feel more intimate and warm.Save this picture!© Marc TeyThe main living areas on the ground floor are directly connected to a large outdoor terrace that cantilevers over the pool. The master and attic bedrooms are also connected to terraces. They mediate between the inside and outside spaces and provide the occupants with shaded cool spaces outdoors, a necessity in the hot humid climate of the tropics.Save this picture!© Marc TeyProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Edition 02: Lightius Loci – Spirit of LightStudent CompetitionsWon & Won 63.5 / Doojin Hwang ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Sepang House / Eleena Jamil ArchitectSave this projectSaveSepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect CopyHouses•Sepang, Malaysia Save this picture!© Marc Tey+ 24 Share Architects: Eleena Jamil Architect Area Area of this architecture project Year: “COPY” Sepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect Area: 450 m² Area: 450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/776270/sepang-house-eleena-jamil-architect Clipboard Malaysia ArchDaily Houses Projects 2015 CopyAbout this officeEleena Jamil ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSepangMalaysiaPublished on November 03, 2015Cite: “Sepang House / Eleena Jamil Architect” 02 Nov 2015.

Howard Lake | 12 October 2002 | News “In the 1970’s and 1980’s it seemed that all we needed to do was secure one really large gift then all the others conveniently fell into place. Appeals had a clear and fast track.“Now partnerships are the current fashion, with everyone cooperating with everyone on something! There is a whole new layer of people to consult, persuade, and egos to massage. Partners need to be in place at the start of an appeal but do not usually provide the lead gift.“Today, more and more larger donors are expecting something in return for their gifts, without specifying exactly what it is! So more time is invested in funders’ needs and ideas.“Finally, there is the trend in statutory bodies and the Community Fund to want counterpart funders in place before they will consider an application. So build in more time to do the job properly.“All this means that many capital appeals will take another year or so – all in the costly planning phase and before money comes in. We now suggest 3 rather than 2 years if Midas is taking a charity through all stages of an appeal, of which the first is all planning, the second negotiation with major donors, and just the final 12 months the actual appeal.”Ian Kerr would be interested in your ideas.

The new site incorporates a six-step walkthrough application guide including an eligibility checklist; details of the types of organisation and work which are funded and those that are not eligible; the different funding programmes; downloadable application form and guidelines; and an application check list.The Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales supports charities that help disadvantaged people to play a fuller role in the community. In 2006, the Foundation gave grants of £22.1 million to 2,616 charities. Howard Lake | 23 September 2007 | News The Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales has redeveloped its website to include a clear step-by-step guide to the application process, a range of case studies and reports on current grants, and a new ‘Media Guide’ to generating publicity.The Foundation had found that, on its original website, one in three people downloading the application form did not also download the guidelines for applicants. Because it primarily supports small to medium size charities, many without a professional fundraiser, the Foundation was keen to ensure that its website succeeded in conveying all the necessary information and advice on submitting a grant application.Louise Harley, head of communications at the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales, said: “We want to make the application process very straightforward by providing as much information as possible in advance of the initial call to us, thus maximising charities’ use of their time and chances of success. By profiling previously funded charities we hope to inspire other charities through reading about successful work.” Advertisement 46 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Lloyds TSB Foundation redevelops its website Tagged with: Digital AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

TCU student recognized for anti-human trafficking work Yvonne Umugwanezahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/yvonne-umugwaneza/ Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Jose Antonio Vargas: ‘where did you come from?’ Yvonne Umugwaneza printEditor’s note: In 1994, an estimated 1 million people were killed in a genocide in the African nation of Rwanda. In the aftermath, thousands of women were sexually assaulted. The three attorneys who successfully prosecuted rape as a war crime will be at TCU on Thursday to discuss this shift in law. TCU 360 staff writer Yvonne Umugwaneza lived through the genocide. This is the second part of her first person account. You can read the first part here. The 10-minute walk took two hours.Members of the Hutu militia were stationed in front of my aunt’s house. They had been trained and equipped by the government. They had listed of Tutsi who were to be killed. Because I wasn’t from Kigali, they let me pass and enter my aunt’s yard.My family looked at me as if I were ghost, sure that I had been killed.My aunt asked: “How did you get here?”“I walked.”My uncle asked: “Are you OK?”“Yes.”My uncle: “Where is everybody?”“I don’t know, we got separated.”Family friends and neighbors were being killed around us.For three days, military and local militias came in and out of my aunt’s house.It was hard not to wonder when death would come for us.April 12It was around noon on a Tuesday when the gunshots stopped.Instead, artillery fire shook the house and roared through the night.By morning there was quiet.My aunt’s house maid, a Hutu, warned that we were to be killed the next day.That night rebel soldiers infiltrated the neighborhood. They rescued us along with other Tutsi neighbors. We fled to the Rebero hotel thinking it would be safe because it was under rebel control.It was a battleground under constant fire from government troops.The next morning, after the heavy shooting ended we bathed in the swimming pool, only to be told it was the only source of safe drinking water left.On Monday, some Tutsi had herded to Nyanza Hill. At least 5,000 were slaughtered. Others were maimed and mutilated.The injured were brought to the Rebero.We had to take care of them. At 14, I had never imagined such carnage.The first person I took care of was a woman. I was giving her water when I realized she was not swallowing.I called a soldier over. He shook her, then looked at me and told me that she was dead.I tended the injured until late in the evening. I went to our family’s room and I told my aunt what happened.“At least she is now gone,” she told me. “She is no longer in pain.”In addition to the wounded, they brought children.Children who had nobody left.April 18That morning, I was in the kitchen feeding children, when I suddenly felt smoke in my chest.I started coughing as blood streamed from my right side.I could not feel my legs.I fell down and slowly I started to see people in shadows. I could hear people speaking, but they seemed to be far away. Then it was quiet and dark.I woke up in my family’s room. My aunt was sitting next to me holding my hand. She told me that I was shot. I had a huge wound in my upper right side and small one in my abdomen.The following night I was moved to the Gishushu neighborhood, another area that was partially under rebel control.I was alone.I do not know how many days I spent in Gishushu. Eventually, I was moved to an area north of the city under rebel control. There, I was reunited with my aunt’s family and hospitalized. Days later, I went through a surgery in which they got some bomb fragments out of my body.I am humbled and grateful to be alive. This experience taught me not to take anything for granted. I try to do my best, always knowing after the darkness there is always a light.
