Camelot criticised by ASA for scratchcard ad outside school

first_img Lottery operator says database failure led to poster being placed near school entrance Lottery Camelot criticised by ASA for scratchcard ad outside school National Lottery operator Camelot has been slapped down by the UK’s advertising regulator after it placed a poster advertising a scratch card close to the entrance of a school.A complainant contacted the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) in May, questioning whether the poster ad was directed at children under 16 years of age. The ad featured an image of a rainbow scratch card with the text “Scratch and See … Top prize £50,000 Lucky Fortune … 7 CHANCES TO WIN! £2”.Camelot, which has a policy of not placing ads within 100m of schools, said a database geolocation failure was the cause of the error. It said it now uses a different database tool which identifies the geographical boundaries of schools, rather than postcode data.The ASA found that Camelot breached the CAP Code rule 17.14, which states that “marketing communications for lotteries should not be directed at those aged under 16 years through the selection of media or context in which they appear”.“The ASA was concerned by the proximity of the poster to the school and considered that the audience of the ad would likely be significantly skewed towards under-16s and because of that it was directed at children through the context in which the ad appeared,” the watchdog said. “We therefore considered that the placement of the ad breached the Code.”It was the first ASA investigation into Camelot in four years, with a complaint over a jackpot commercial rejected back in 2014.The ruling came as the UK Gambling Commission today (21 November) urged businesses and parents to step up efforts to protect children from the dangers of gambling after a new report identified an increase in the number of problem gamblers aged 11-16.Last week, Camelot UK Lotteries announced a 5% increase in sales for the first half of its financial year, aided by a strong performance from its draw-based games. Total sales for the six months ended September 29 rose to £3.5bn, aided by growth across all product lines.

Fear another stock market crash? Here’s why I’d buy Unilever shares today

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Paul Summers | Thursday, 23rd July, 2020 | More on: IGG ULVR I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Shares in FTSE 100 consumer goods giant Unilever (LSE:ULVR) shot out of the blocks this morning as the company reported better-than-expected trading over the pandemic.Here’s why I think the stock should be considered a worthy addition by most investors, particularly those fearing another market crash. 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…Unilever beats expectationsA 7% share price rise for a company already worth £120bn is quite something, so let’s take a closer look. Underlying sales growth fell 0.3% over the second quarter and 0.1% in the six months to the end of June. This would ordinarily be regarded as disappointing but it’s actually a better result than most analysts had predicted. Performance in North America was a highlight. Underlying sales growth here hit 9.5% in Q2. As one might expect, Unilever saw a rise in demand for products that could be consumed or used at home as lockdowns were enforced across the world. Sales of foods, ice cream and tea were higher over the period.On the flip side, demand for personal care and beauty products, aside from those relating to hygiene, declined. Sales in restaurants, cinemas and the like inevitably tumbled as these venues were closed. Solid holdAccording to CEO Alan Jope, today’s set of figures show “the true strength of Unilever“.  I’m not about to disagree. While some may regard the company as a dull, lumbering giant, the consistency and diversification of its earnings coupled with an enviable portfolio of brands surely make the stock a solid hold during tough times. The fact that the company managed to double free cash flow to €2.9bn over the six months also leaves it in a strong financial position.Don’t forget the dividends either. While far from the highest-yielding stock in the FTSE 100, Unilever is a reliable source of income. Today, it announced that the Q2 dividend would stay at €0.4104 per share. Assuming it returns €1.64 (149p) in the current year, the stock yields 3.2%. At a time when many in the FTSE 100 aren’t returning anything at all, that’s got to be attractive.Shares in Unilever were trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 20 prior to this morning’s announcement. I still don’t regard this as unreasonable.Another top dividend payerAnother top-quality stock reporting today was FTSE 250 online trading provider IG Group (LSE: IGG). Thanks to an “exceptional Q4” due to market volatility, the company revealed a 36% rise in full-year net trading revenue to just under £650m. Pre-tax profit also jumped 52% to £295.9m as the number of clients actively trading via the company’s platform grew 34% to 239,600. Despite these great numbers however, IG’s shares were down almost 10% in early trading. This would appear to be due to the company’s belief that market volatility will return to “more normalised levels” in the next financial year.Personally, I think this is prudent. Far better to under-promise and over-deliver if (and that’s a sizeable ‘if’) we get another market crash later in 2020. Since no one knows the future with any certainty, I’d say today’s share price fall looks overdone.Like Unilever, IG’s income credentials should not be overlooked either. Good to their word, the company confirmed today that its total dividend for the year would be 43.2p per share. Assuming this payout is maintained going forward (and there’s no reason to suggest it won’t be), IG yields 5.5%.  I’ve no hesitation in retaining my holding.

New Year, New You: a recipe from extreme chef Kiran Jethwa

first_imgAdd the salt to the oats, then add the milk and cook in the microwave. I prefer my porridge to still have a bit of texture so I don’t fully cook the oats.Allow to cool a little.Add the grated coconut, mashed banana and grated apple.Finish with chia seeds and roughly crushed nuts just before eating so the retain their crunchy texture.You can add a honey to this if it’s not sweet enough, but resist the temptation if possible.Chefs Tip: Keep your grated coconut ready in the fridge in a sealed container, it will keep for up to a week. Your nuts can also be pre-crushed and kept ready to speed things up if you hit snooze too many times.Extreme Food with @ChefKiranJethwa returns to Channel 4 in 2017. Here is a great breakfast recipe to kick off your transformation:Sugarless, reduced oats, Power Packed Breakfast Porridge½ cup oats½ cup semi skimmed milkpinch of salt1tbsp toasted crushed almonds1 tbsp toasted crushed cashews½ mashed banana½ grated green apple2 tablespoons grated fresh coconut1 teaspoon chia seedsMethod LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I was asked to offer advice for the keen player who has let themselves go and wants to get a bit of their spark back. So my first advice to you, before I give you a recipe, would be to give up the smoking. I’m not going to preach about this, as I am sure you are well aware but there are a good fist full of reasons why this will make you a better player, and a healthier person.Let’s assume this is your first step, and you will encounter the inevitable need to binge on food while you get through a tough time giving up smoking. There is nothing wrong with this and nothing to worry about, so long as you ‘binge’ on the right stuff. More on that in a second.Besides the smoking advice here is something that really worked for me. I gave up 2 simple things whilst trying to lose weight and get fit about three years ago and it worked extremely well. One of them was alcohol. Try going a whole month or more without a drink, then when you achieved your goals drink in moderation. I generally don’t drink during the week and have a couple on the weekend and this suits me fine. This is from a person who has never lost a downing competition!Extreme eats: Jethwa has appeared in Chanel 4’s Extreme Food and Food UnwrappedThe other thing is refined sugar. This sounds simple but when you look at how much food we eat that actually contains refined sugar it becomes more difficult. There is the obvious sugar in your tea/coffee, this can be replaced with good sweeteners to ease the transition. Then the sweets, chocolates, cakes and biscuits are obvious no-nos. Other less obvious culprits are white bread, processed cereals, ready meals, sauces like ketchup, brown sauce and relishes. These are full of refined sugar.When it comes to tea/snack time and you feel peckish there are lots of really good options to replace the not-so-good ones. I get stuck into quite a lot of nuts particularly toasted almonds and cashews – these are a great replacement to a biscuit with your tea or coffee. Have ready to hand plenty of carrot sticks, green beans, edamame, toasted sun flower seeds, (the list goes on) that are delicious, packed with protein and vitamins and really will help with your dietary challenges.With the framework of this diet working for you, you can go ahead and eat good portions of all the foods that are well documented to be good for you. Things that should always be on your menu – eggs, fish (particularly salmon), green vegetables (particularly broccoli & spinach), beans and pulses, brown rice, chicken or turkey, oats, fruit, sweet potatoes, yams.center_img To tie in with the ‘New Year, New You’ section of the February 2017 issue of Rugby World magazine, chef Kiran Jethwa – who represented Kenya at rugby – offers you some eating advice On the hoof: Chef Kiran Jethwa in action as a centre in Kenya last_img read more

Jason White’s big tackle on Chris Wyles

first_imgSunday Jan 23, 2011 Jason White’s big tackle on Chris Wyles It’s been a while since big hitting machine Jason White has been featured here on Rugbydump. He’s back though after this great tackle he made on Saracens’ Chris Wyles on Friday night was much requested. Scotsman White, now 32, has had a rough time since moving to Clermont in France, with injury derailing his attempts to be a regular first choice player for the club. Last year he broke his leg and was out for a lengthy period, but has since made good progress. “To miss eight months it is always going to take any player time to get back up to speed and that was the case with myself, but I have now been involved in the last 10 club matches and I am feeling good,” White said recently. “Of course I would like to be starting more matches, but we have a top quality pack and I just have to take my chances to impress when they come along.” While out with injury last year White wasn’t completely inactive, as during his recuperation he’s been busy off the pitch with fatherhood as he and his wife now have two little girls. He also says that despite a disappointing 2010, he loves life in France. “Playing matches in France is something else. Every clubs fans are so passionate and almost look to the team to defend the local areas honour and as a result there are some great atmospheres. It really spurs you on as a player and makes each occasion different.” The former Scotland captain would love to play for his country again, and if all goes well he could end up being at the World Cup later this year, but for now his focus is on Clermont. “There is serious competition for places at Clermont and nobody can take their place for granted. Thats one of the reasons why I dont want to get ahead of myself as regards Scotland. “Of course I would love to play for my country again and there isnt anybody with more national pride than me, but my initial objective is to get into the Clermont first XV on a regular basis, and that will be a huge challenge in itself,” he said. With hits like this and a typically high workrate, White seems to be on the right path and will no doubt regain his well earned reputation as being one of the hardest men in the game.

There are few weekend-houses in the general area of this residence in a small place near Budva, a town in Montenegro. The residence is located in an amphitheatric ally within reasonable distance from the rest of the buildings. The design decisions were influenced by the trajectories of sun rays, the Mediterranean winds (“bura” and shiroko”), the view and sounds of the sea, and the odor of the surrounding plants and trees.Save this picture!© Ana KosticThe main motivation for the spatial experiments shaping the building was the manipulation of depth perception (dimensionality of space) allowing the enigmatic notion of phenomenology to be directly experienced. In this regard, the project is exploring Kojin Karatani’s notion of “parallax”.Save this picture!© Ana KosticFrom the notion of parallax, each time when we observe “the thing” (the house) from different angels, we perceive its dimensions to be different. This incommensurability results from the relation between the contained space of the inside and the enclosure by the outward skin. The incommensurability between inside and outside, enclosed and enclosure, is based on our elementary phenomenological experience of reality as a space that confronts us. For this reason, when we observe nature from the inside (view framed by the window) we are always distanced from “the thing” itself (from the sublime aspects of nature). In this context, when we open the window, the direct impact of the external reality creates a minimal shock putting us in the position being overwhelmed by nature’s proximity. According to these aspects, this residence is positioned and designed in such manner so that formal aspects always prevent the complete experience of space. This constraint of experience is reflected in two aspects.Save this picture!© Ana KosticOn the one hand the project questions the observer’s expectations concerning his/her perception of space. When approaching the residence, one is left with only two dimensions of a space (concrete facade enclosing the space). This notion of the two-dimensional frame is assisted by the construction process of the facade (suspended walls of the residence). Concrete walls were constructed by formwork which wood was burned in order to leave wooden imprint on the surface. In this process of constructing retaining walls at the same time was created a skim (envelope) of the residence. In this way, the formal experience of the facade affects all our senses and thus conceals the spatial dimension of space.Save this picture!© Ana KosticOn the other hand, the residence is framed by a concrete envelope which limits the inside space, but at the same time opens the scope to a deeper comprehension of that space. This is present in the position of doors and windows within the facade. Through this openings the main volume of the project, partially restricted by white walls with rounded edges (child friendly design), is confronted with the harshness and the roughness of an envelope and masonry wall which is spatial frame of the residence. In other words, smoothness of the inside walls opposes roughness of outer surfaces, in that way outer hardness of selected materials resists interior softness of surface treatment.Save this picture!© Ana KosticThe gap between skim (envelope) and volume indicates that inside and outside do never fully cover the entire space. This indicates that there is always the “third dimension” in the relation between outside and inside. The project experiments with this in its relation to the properties of the site. In this sense, the relationship between the residence and 250 years old olive threes, orientation, formal affection, and its relation to the topography fulfill the measure which already existed on site. In other words, the residence is designed in order to highlight some spatial qualities which are already enclosed in the multiple dimensions of the place.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’Wolf D.

This week it was confirmed in several locations in the Hoosier State. Dan Emmert, with DuPont Pioneer, reported that “While scouting fields in Perry County yesterday, I found these suspicious looking lesions. The Purdue Plant and Pest diagnostic lab confirmed it is Southern Rust.” It was found in a field that was replanted on June 1. He added, “With 6 weeks of grainfill left in this field, Southern Rust could cause premature plant death if conditions are favorable.”Brian bushThere have also been reports of rust in Spencer County. Brian Bush, with Dupont Pioneer, reports he found a field in Bartholomew County that contained rust, “Before you get worried, this is the only field I have seen in the many I have scouted. But now that it’s here, please check yours.” After the disease devastated corn in Southern Indiana last year, many growers have been spraying fungicides this summer as a preventative.
