Bencon rolls out new voluntary self-exclusion solution

first_img28th June 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Strategy Canadian tech company Bencon Technologies has launched a new voluntary self-exclusion solution for the online gaming industry. GameSecure enables at-risk gamblers to opt out from all gambling websites in real-time. The solution also ensures necessary support is delivered across all operators. Bencon is currently working with various jurisdictions in the US to integrate GameSecure into their responsible gaming programs as the preferred response tool. Keith Whyte, executive director of the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) in the US, said: “GameSecure provides a timely and much-needed option for regulators and operators to use technology to solve a major problem in regulated gaming today. “Currently even well-intentioned self-exclusion programs fail players and operators because they do not provide coverage and support seamlessly across a jurisdiction. “We strongly encourage all stakeholders to adopt innovative programs like GameSecure as an ethical and effective way to conduct gaming responsibly and reduce the social costs of gambling addiction.” Tags: Online Gambling Regions: US Bencon rolls out new voluntary self-exclusion solution Canadian tech company Bencon Technologies has launched a new voluntary self-exclusion solution for the online gaming industry Topics: Strategy Tech & innovationlast_img read more

Should I buy AMC stock today at $59?

first_imgShould I buy AMC stock today at $59? Enter Your Email Address As reopening trades go, I think AMC (NYSE: AMC) stock is one of the most exciting. Although that doesn’t mean it’s the best. Shares in the company have surged in value over the past six months as investors on Reddit and elsewhere have rushed to buy.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…This has created an interesting situation. The world’s largest cinema operator has been able to ride this enthusiasm to issue more shares, raising $1.6bn in new capital. As a result, the risk profile of AMC stock has drastically changed. The company has increased its cash balance and reduced borrowing, even though it’s been operating under severe pandemic restrictions. Raising cash In theory, if the company continues to issue new shares, it could eliminate its debt. This would reduce interest costs to zero and could make the enterprise profitable. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as if this is going to happen. In April, management put forward a proposal to issue an additional 500m shares but had to backtrack on this. Still, there are plans in the works to issue a further 25m shares, providing a potential cash infusion of $1.4bn. If this plan comes to fruition, I’d buy AMC stock as a speculative investment and recovery play. Compared to its UK peer, Cineworld, the company seems to have a good deal more support from its investors and more flexibility in raising additional capital. That’s not to say this business is out of the woods just yet. Revenues are likely to remain depressed for some time. What’s more, it can’t go on issuing new stock forever. For every new share that’s issued, it reduces existing shareholders’ claims on the business.Therefore, in theory, each share is then worth less. If the company continues to issue new shares, the value of AMC stock may decline. AMC stock bucks the trend Still, this is just theory. It’s impossible to predict the direction of share prices. The company has bucked the trend and defied critics, so far, and that could continue. This is why I’d buy AMC stock. The company has continued to prove its critics wrong and made the most of a bad situation over the past 12 months.As the global economy continues to recover from the coronavirus pandemic, the corporation’s revenues should increase. And as revenues grow, the company’s improving fundamentals may help drive the share price higher. Of course, if the recovery starts to stutter, the opposite could happen. This is probably the most considerable risk and challenge hanging over the enterprise right now, and it’s the reason why I rate the business as a speculative buy.AMC stock has potential, but it’s not suitable for the faint-hearted. The group’s recovery could fall apart at a moment’s notice.  Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Exim Tower / SPASM Design Architects

first_img Projects ArchDaily CopyApartments•Dar es Salaam, Tanzania Products used in this ProjectMetallicsHAVER & BOECKERArchitectural Wire Mesh – MULTI-BARRETTE 8130Text description provided by the architects. Dar-es-Salaam, a harbour city in Tanzania, retained strong traces of its colonial past. Shaded arcades and colonnades provided a climatically sensitized interface where the building engaged the public. This trend faded over the last half century due to the emergence of a generic global style and a paranoia for security. The transition of the city into a financial hub led to the disruption of the appropriated architectural fabric by brutal monolithic built forms. Amidst the low rise urban sprawl of the city, a fifteen storied building stands out as a ‘tower’. The brief for a speculative office tower curbs any architectural extravagances for economical viability. With Exim Tower, every architectural requirement was carefully synchronized to craft a building coherent to its siting and function. The tower skews to the city grid and orients itself to maximize aspect between surrounding buildings, also allowing for negotiated ingress and egress points. The hassan-green granite clad base grounds the tower and forms a softer, non reflective presence on the street level which along with the open fire sprinkler reservoir with a twenty metre long cascade creates a comfortable micro climate. Save this picture!Courtesy of SPASM Design ArchitectsThe services for the building are tucked into four structural masses that hold up clutter free floor plates. The thin proportions of the tower allows for maximum light penetration, eliminating the need for artificial lighting during work hours. Save this picture!Courtesy of SPASM Design ArchitectsThe principal glazing of the tower is shaded by a stainless steel mesh that filters solar gain, buffers ambient street noise, giving the body of the tower a sinuous weightlessness. Every floor extends in opposite directions along the longer side to create double height shaded terraces that offer comfortable outdoor experiences throughout the height of the building. Save this picture!Courtesy of SPASM Design ArchitectsThese elements, which provide spaces sensitized to human needs and experience, express themselves in a sleek, horizontally stretched silhouette of the tower. We chose to bring value to the project through the comfort of human occupation in hope of enhanced productivity and creating a local icon.Project gallerySee allShow lessLargest Apple Store Opens Today!ArticlesPlaycloud / NAMELESSArticlesProject locationAddress:Dar es Salaam, TanzaniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

LGBTQ2S+ youth targeted again in Florida: Defeat HB241/SB582!

first_imgOccupied Muscogee Creek/Seminole/Timucua LandIn January of 2020, Florida LGBTQ+ organizers mobilized thousands of people against 10 anti-LGBTQ2S+ bills. Introduced into the Florida House of Representatives and with identical accompanying bills in the state Senate, they constituted a gross, blatant attack on LGBTQ2S+ people. They mainly targeted youth, from censoring LGBTQ2S+ education in schools to criminalizing transgender youth who go on hormone replacement therapy. Fortunately, the mobilization was successful and all 10 anti-LGBTQ2S+ bills were defeated. This year, so far, only one has made a return, but it’s particularly odious. House Bill 241 and its accompanying Senate Bill 582 once again target LGBTQ2S+ youth and all youth seeking reproductive health care. HB241/SB582 establishes a “Parents’ Bill of Rights,” which is supposedly meant to increase the interaction of parents with their childrens’ schooling and health. Of course, that is how the right wing would phrase it: It’s a bill to bring the family closer together by getting parents more involved in the lives of their children. However, upon closer inspection, this bill has the potential to destroy the lives of many children, as it firmly establishes children as the property of their parents, incapable of being their own persons and making their own decisions. It rips away any sort of privacy that children may have, or more importantly, may need to have in order to survive in their homes. Under this “Parents’ Bill of Rights,” parents would have complete and total control over any information given by students to their teachers, guidance counselors, school workers or doctors. The bill would make it illegal for any information given by children to the aforementioned caretakers, concerning their health and well-being, to be withheld from parents, either inadvertently or intentionally. What this means is that if a child comes out to a teacher, guidance counselor or any other school official, that individual would have to immediately provide this information to the parents of the child. If a child asks their doctor in a private setting about birth control, or any sort of sexual education or HIV/AIDS education, the doctor would have to immediately provide this information to their parents. With rates of violence against LGBTQ2S+ youth growing, the issue of a child being outed to their parents creates major concerns over the child’s safety. Violence and disowning are two common tactics of bigoted parents when they learn they have a child who is part of the LGBTQ2S+ community. Ultimately what this bill seeks to do is totally remove autonomy from youth with a particular focus on LGBTQ2S+ youth. It is a bill aimed at suppressing a more inclusive curriculum in schools and suppressing an undeniable part of history. Right-wing conservatives like Florida State Rep. Erin Grall will harp on how family is important for the development of youth, but will fight tooth and nail to make sure “family” functions only one way: heterosexual and patriarchal. Youth need rights, not ‘fixing’This writer recalls that during their time in high school, 12 years ago, when a gay friend and classmate from a right-wing, evangelical family was outed to their parents by peers close to them. They were subjected to harsh punishment and total lockdown by their parents, until they “corrected their ways.” Some of my friend’s church peers, who went to the same school, were instructed to “monitor” them throughout the school day. And my friend could only speak and associate with a pre-approved list of friends their parents had. If they were caught speaking to anyone on their parents’ other list, the list of “sinful, immoral bad influences” (of which this writer was one), they were further punished. This had a traumatic effect on them and led to a detrimental relationship with their family as a now openly queer adult. If you find yourself wondering just what the repercussions of HB241/SB582 would look like, consider this anecdote. In terms of what has historically happened to LGBTQ2S+ people with regards to trying to live openly, this is mild in terms of the violence we face, especially LGBTQ2S+ youth. Where is the assistance for LGBTQ2S+ youth who are put out on the streets at alarmingly high rates? Nowhere to be found. Instead they are targeted in an already oppressive society to be erased and, more horrifically, “corrected” or “fixed.” Youth must have the right to shape their destiny. It is the job of a parent or parents to guide their children to make strong, healthy decisions in their lives — to encourage and support them regardless of their sexual orientation and/or gender and to create a strong bond of trust, communication and accountability that is nurturing, caring and affirming. HB241/SB582 ignores all this and insteads demands fear, subservience and repression from youth. We as revolutionaries, whether or not we are part of the LGBTQ2S+ community, and we must fight back against all these oppressive, hateful bills and crush them once and for all. The struggle for LGBTQ2S+ liberation demands nothing less! It is up to us to apply the history of yesterday’s battles to our movement today, to struggle and win tomorrow.Please like Florida Coalition for Trans Liberation on Facebook for more information and to learn how you can get involved!

She accomplished the feat by rotating sleeping and rowing every two hours.Harrison also posted weekly updates on her Instagram page, sharing adventures such as when she came across a striped marlin and rowed through a stretch of water covered in seaweed.Harrison experienced a setback on Thursday when, with about 100 miles to go, her boat capsized, according to Atlantic Campaigns. At the time, she also informed her safety officer that she had injured her left elbow, and the race doctor went through the injury with her over the phone, the organization reported.Just hours later, Harrison told the race doctor that she was “much happier and calmer,” was working through the pain and would be able to finish the race unassisted.“Rowing an ocean is not over until you step safely ashore, the risks remain throughout, and there is no time to relax,” the organization said in a statement at the time.Upon approaching landfall, Harrison held up smoke signals in each hand, sporting a British flag once ashore.When asked by reporters what the first thing she wanted upon stepping onto land was, she replied, “Food. Definitely food.”Harrison’s adventures also raised more than $14,000 for disaster relief NGO Shelterbox.Before Harrison, the youngest woman to row across the ocean was American Katie Spotz, who crossed the Atlantic from east to west in 2010 at age 22.ABC News’ Christine Theodorou contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
