Gaming regulator says outlay is essential for regulated brands to compete against offshore rivals Tags: Online Gambling Regions: Europe Nordics Norway 28th November 2018 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Norway’s gambling regulator has defended a rise in television advertising by the country’s licensed gaming operators, claiming it is necessary to beat offshore rivals.A report by Medietilsynet, the media regulator, shows a 3% fall in total TV advertising spend by gambling companies to just over NK1bn (£91.0m/€103.0m/$116.2m) in the year ended July 31st, 2018, despite a 31% rise from state-owned Norwegian operators Norsk Tipping, Rikstoto and Pantelotteriet.The three operators spent around NK250m in the 12 months after an almost 9% dip in the prior period.In contrast, TV marketing spend by unlicensed offshore companies, who can advertise via channels broadcasting to Norway from offshore locations, fell by 10% to NK770m from a record NK850m in 2016-17. Some 99% of that spend came from channels that broadcast from the UK, with minor contributions from Spain and the Netherlands.The Lottstift regulatory body said the downturn in advertising by unlicensed operators is due to regulatory measures, with legislation designed to end the loophole introduced earlier this year.Despite the fall, the unlicensed market still accounted for around 82% of TV marketing expenditure, leading Gunn Merete Paulsen, general director of the Lottstift, to claim the rise in spending is essential to channel the public to legal brands.“For licensed gambling providers win Norway, it is necessary to advertise in order to channel customers to the legitimate game offers,” Paulsen said. “The content of this marketing is strictly regulated and focuses on gaming with low risk of gambling addiction.“We are also following developments closely, and expect that gaming providers who have Norwegian permission control the scope of marketing so that it does not go beyond the intention of channelling customers to the safe, regulated real-money offerings.”Medietilsynet found that just 2.5% of Norwegian channels’ advertising revenue comes from gambling, compared to 18% from the foreign channels.The media regulator said the figures are derived from advertising statistics from Nielsen Media Research for the period from August 2017 to July 2018.“The Lottery Authority is very pleased that the marketing of gaming on television is down,” Paulsen said. “The main emphasis of this promotion is made by companies that are not authorised to offer or market gambling through Norwegian television channels in Norway.“The fact that we see such a big reduction in such marketing can be a sign that regulatory measures have taken place and that the trend has now reversed.”Regulated gaming in Norway was worth NOK43.7bn last year and has grown by 65.7% since 2012.In August, the European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) urged the Norwegian government to introduce new regulations to allow foreign gaming companies to operate in the country, saying the current system is “not sustainable”.Norway’s government completed a consultation earlier this year on its proposal to begin blocking payment transactions to and from these foreign gaming websites.However, EGBA criticised the plans, saying such proposals are not a “realistic or effective measure to control internet activity”.

The project was the complete revival of small home on death’s door. Other than applying the standard functional and aesthetic requirements of a small family within their financial considerations, urgent architectural CPR was required. Despite the misgivings of others, the clients’ and project team recognised an opportunity to create a unique home, embracing the history of the building and meeting the obvious challenges with excitement.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe council Heritage Overlay meant that the original, severely dilapidated Singapore Cottage prefab, built in the 1850s could not be “bowled over” (the first thought of every person who ventured into the house); instead it was lovingly retained. Part of the enjoyment of the process for everyone involved was learning about its past life, something which I often ignored, not intentionally, by concentrating on the “new part” of a project where an old building is refurbished and extended. The framing was marked with Roman Numerals to enable it be put together after it being shipped and delivered on site and to be taken down and relocated if required. There were layers of building linings both inside and out such as wallpaper from the 1870s and roof shingles under the corrugated iron sheeting as they were peeled away There were many theories on what the building was actually used as many years ago, a general store, a halfway house for farmers and travellers or potentially a brothel due to this profession’s history in the suburb its located in.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe first challenge was to overcome the limited site size – 238m2 – in order to fit the brief, which called for an open plan living, dining, kitchen, rumpus room, bathroom, walk in pantry, walk in laundry, master bedroom, ensuite, walk in robe, 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and an outdoor area. This was accomplished by building around “the back yard” in a “U” shape facing north. Materials and finishes were selected to be hard-wearing and maintenance-free, to endure the enthusiastic creativity of young children, while remaining sympathetic to adult sensibilities. The group objective was to create a highly contemporary space with enduring and classic features. Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientA neglected and universally overlooked property has been transformed into a clever, modern home. The spaces combine both classic and modern materials and finishes – such as clean white cork flooring, white acrylic bench tops and white fittings – with less ubiquitous, yet equally appealing ones, like the striking orange, studded rubber flooring, original 1870s layered wallpaper , and rustic recycled messmate timber boards. Rather than create dissonance, the contrasts work extremely well together, forming a minimalistic and simple aesthetic with a controlled contrast of colour and texture.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe process delivered an outcome that, after comparing the original decaying building with the completed project, is both impressive and surprising; It is clean yet interesting, preserves its colourful antiquity whilst being progressive, and functions incredibly well, considering the site’s spatial constraints. The home pushes boundaries with purpose; it is a unique home yet is very easy to embrace and is in no danger of dating.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe considerable discussions during the design and documentation process, which included the implementation of specific sustainable choices, ultimately came down to prioritising items based on cost and value for money, as is very often the case with smaller projects. Save this picture!SectionConsiderations included long-lasting and durable sustainable materials. Such as cork and rubber flooring and recycled timber cladding, the use of hydronic heating and the omission of air conditioning. The planning and structural co-ordination endeavoured to minimise the use of steel, favouring timber framing through sensible spans and cantilevers. But ultimately what stood out in terms of sustainability, was the common sense application of standard, good thermally passive design techniques.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe project replaces a sad, disintegrating building with a house that the clients love coming home to. The simple aesthetic of the façade concealing something exciting behind, generates a curiosity in passers-by, who are often found marvelling at its blend of history and restoration with interest. It has given another 100+ years to a house that has already done 165.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientProject gallerySee allShow lessIs Housing at the Root of Inequality?Architecture NewsOpposition Mounts Against David Chipperfield’s Nobel Center in StockholmArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/614671/st-kilda-house-jost-architects Clipboard St Kilda House / Jost Architects CopyAbout this officeJost ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSaint KildaHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAustraliaPublished on April 01, 2015Cite: “St Kilda House / Jost Architects” 01 Apr 2015.

ChinaAsia – Pacific ChinaAsia – Pacific When another Internet user requested more information, Zhao replied: “It is like one day you throw away your leather shoes and then they are in your stomach.”After Zhao ceased to be seen hosting CCTV’s evening news programme from 10 April onwards, speculation began to circulate that he had been temporarily suspended for violating the state TV broadcaster’s internal regulations.On 22 April, Zhao posted an entry on Weibo that was a verse from the poet Wang Changling 王昌龄 . It indicated that he had no regrets: “If friends and relatives in Luoyang enquire after my feelings, I would say my heart is like a piece of pure ice in a jade pot.” (“洛阳亲友如相问，一片冰心在玉壶。”)Zhao’s 9 April post referred to the discovery that toxic industrial gelatine has been used in a wide range of foodstuffs. Investigators have arrested a total of 53 people and closed ten factories that were allegedly using toxic products such as old leather to make gelatine for food products.Contradictory statements by CCTV have fuelled concerns about Zhao’s situation after he posted the original warning. Initially the station said he was on a “normal” 10-day vacation. Other statements indicated that he had been punished but not dismissed.On 15 April, the CCTV programme “Weekly Quality Reports” (每周质量报告) contained a report entitled “The secret in the capsules” (胶囊里的秘密) that said industrial gelatine made in part from pieces of old shoes had been used to manufacture the capsules for many common drugs as well as emulsifier used in a wide range of foodstuffs.There have been several major outcries about tainted food products in recent years. Although the Internet and social networks have provided netizens and journalists with new ways of circulating information and expressing their concerns, government censorship continues to be felt whenever such a scandal emerges.In what was a very unusual occurrence in China, a journalist who had been investigating tainted cooking oil was murdered by unidentified individuals in September 2011. Those responsible were never arrested. March 12, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on China RSF_en Read in Chinese / 看中文Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the fate of Zhao Pu 赵普, an evening news presenter on state-owned CCTV, who has not been seen on screen since 9 April, after posting a warning message on his Weibo microblog about the dangers of the gelatine being added to certain kinds of yoghurt and other food products.“CCTV’s management must quickly explain why Zhao Pu was suspended and what his current status is,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If he violated an internal regulation, CCTV should clearly say so, in which case, the legitimacy of the station’s internal regulations must be questioned. Zhao just warned his compatriots about a proven public health issue, in connection with which many arrests have already been made.“The censorship of Zhao’s message on the Internet and CCTV’s initial silence followed by incoherent statements just reinforce the hypothesis that Zhao has been sidelined at the behest of the government, which – as in earlier food scandals – presumably wanted to suppress any comments on a subject it regarded as very sensitive.”Zhao, 40, posted the following message on his microblog on 9 April. It was forwarded 130,000 times before it was removed later the same day:“Text message from an investigative reporter: Do not eat yoghurt (the thick kind) or jelly, especially children. Their contents are truly frightening.

Vestimentiferan tubeworms are significant members of deep-sea chemosynthetically-driven communities, including hydrothermal vents and cold seeps. The reproductive condition in this taxon is rarely studied because of sampling constraints inherent to these environments, and the lack of a simple methodology to quantify gonad development in vestimentiferans. We demonstrate that the amount of gonad found in the first 10 mm of trunk can be used as representative of the reproductive condition of the individual, and we establish a linear relationship between the amount of gonad and the proportion of wax ester in the trunk of female vestimentiferans. This relationship represents a new method for the determination of the reproductive condition in this group.
