Report flags accidental app spending among UK youngsters

One in ten young people in the UK are accidentally spending money on in-app purchases, while over 95% of those aged between 11 and 18 currently use a gaming app on their mobile or tablet, according to a new report by the Safer Online Gambling Group.Entitled ‘Young People: Gaming and Gambling Study’, the publication based its findings on telephone, social media and in-person interviews with 500 young people and family members from across the UK.Among other key findings in the report was that of those young people who have made an in-app or in-game purchase, the average spend for each individual was valued at between £500 (€550/$610) and £600 per year. On a nationwide scale, this amounts to a total spend of £276m every year.The Safer Online Gambling Group focused primarily on the impact of so-called ‘loot boxes’, a feature of video games whereby a player buy a ‘blind boxed’ virtual item for cash. These items can be a new outfit for a player’s in-game avatar, or a rare weapon, for example. Loot boxes are commonplace in many games and apps and according to the report, are readily available to players as young as three years old.The report also flagged the impact of advertising on young people, with a rise in gambling advertising and marketing spend, especially around sports games. The Safer Online Gambling Group raised concerns that some of these adverts do not specifically exclude children from their targeting.In addition, the Safer Online Gambling Group said that despite Apple requesting developers to disclose the odds of players receiving high-value items in a loot box, most games fail to do so.The report estimates that the Apple App Store draws 82% of its $11bn revenue from gaming, citing additional research that suggests 92% of revenue comes from freemium games featuring in-app purchase options.“Financial transactions through in-app purchases and the growing exposure to gambling advertising is a growing concern to parents and those who work with young people,” the Safer Online Gambling Group said in the report. “We think it is careless of the video games industry to not do more to prevent children from spending so much money, with little ID checking, in some cases where parents are totally unaware.“We also think betting companies need to ensure their marketing does not display on games marketed at under 18s, via affiliates or otherwise and call upon regulators and the government to do further research into these areas.”With this in mind, the Safer Online Gambling Group has now made a number of recommendations for both the government and gaming and gambling industry to help protect young people.It requested that the government probe the gaming industry to make it easier to ban in-app purchasing on devices, as well as to disclose odds or specific terms of in-app purchasing prior to purchasing apps and hold affiliate marketers to account for content displayed to young and vulnerable people in-apps.In terms of industry requests, the Safer Online Gambling Group said developers and operators should ensure that gameplay for under 18s does not simulate gambling, as well as enforce a ban on in-app purchasing upfront.The Safer Online Gambling Group is also calling for the gaming and gambling industry to disclose odds for loot boxes prior to purchasing and audit affiliate marketers and marketing agencies to ensure young people are screened out of gambling advertising.

In IPL 2015, Punjab Kings (then Kings XI Punjab) edged out RR in the one-over eliminator.Rajasthan Royals set a 192-run target for PBKS, batting first with Ajinkya Rahane scoring 54-ball 74 and Shane Watson hitting 35-ball 45. Two quickfire knocks of Karun Nair and Stuart Binny also helped. But Shaun Marsh with a 40-ball 65 set the tone for Punjab’s chase before David Miller scored 54 off 30 balls. However, that was not enough to achieve the target as the match ended in a tie. In the Super Over, PBKS set a 16-run target that RR failed to achieve after scoring just 6/2. 05-May-09Rajasthan Royals78 RunsDurban CricketIndian premier leagueIndian Premier League 2021Latest Sports News Jhye RichardsonPace bowler₹14 Crore IPL 2021 Punjab Kings (PBKS) Full and Final Squads Punjab Kings (PBKS) Retained Players: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, Deepak Hooda, Prabhsimran Singh, Mohammed Shami, Chris Jordan, Darshan Nalkande, Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Ishan Porel.List of players bought by PBKS in IPL 2021 auction:  Cricket Virat Kohli completes 10 years in Test Cricket: 10 things you should know about India skipper- check out Kevon Cooper9RR 21-Apr-15Kings IX PunjabOne-Over EliminatorAhmedabad 10-Apr-15Rajasthan Royals26 RunsPune 06-Apr-12Rajasthan Royals31 RunsJaipur Football LIVE Cricket Score IND vs NZ WTC Final: India VS New Zealand Live score, ball by ball coverage, Virat Kohli starts Day 3: Follow… 14-Apr-13Rajasthan Royals6 WicketsJaipur IPL 2021 RR vs PBKS: Sanju Samson’s RR vs KL Rahul’s PBKS, who has the edge?

Italy beat Scotland with a last minute drop

first_imgTuesday Mar 18, 2008 Italy beat Scotland with a last minute drop In their final game of the Six Nations 2008 campaign, Scotland’s improving performances came to none, as they lost out to Italy with virtually the last kick of the game.Scotland were leading 17-10 at halftime and were looking good, with few errors and good control of the game.But the last twenty minutes in Rome proved vital after star number eight Sergio Parisse intercepted a pass and flew off down field, tossing the ball inside which resulted in a great try for Gonzalo Canale.Chris Paterson slotted another perfect penalty later in the game, resulting in a perfect Six Nations kicking record to add to his perfect World Cup record.With time almost up and the score at 20-20, Italy pinned Scotland back deep in their half which led to Italy’s Andrea Marcato slotting the match winning drop goal from 22 meters out to seal a famous Italian victory in front of a passionate home crowd.Congratulations must go out to Italy who, under Nick Mallett, will surely get better and better.

Standing Rock: New evacuation order, calls to resist

first_imgTensions are rising after North Dakota’s governor issued an order demanding that water protectors evacuate the Oceti Sakowin camp by Feb. 22. The Standing Rock Sioux Nation has protested construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline for well over a year, joined by thousands of supporters, including military veterans.The DAPL violates Indigenous sovereignty and Native land and water rights. Oil leakage from the pipeline threatens to pollute the water supply relied on by up to 18 million people.The pro-Big Oil Trump administration approved resumption of the pipeline’s construction, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers granted the easement permitting Energy Transfer Partners to do so.A statement from Gov. Doug Burgum’s office argues that rapid snowmelt in the area is creating a risk of flooding that is dangerous to activists and could lead to pollution if waste from the camps is pulled into the river.This isn’t the first time the state has cited dangerous weather conditions as a reason for evacuation. Back in November, the state expressed concern about activists’ safety in the freezing winter temperatures. Of course, that didn’t stop the state from using water cannons to violently remove activists.The concern about pollution is an added irony, given the state’s continued attempts to drill an environmentally destructive oil pipeline under Lake Oahe.The water protectors have refused to move and have begun a systematic camp cleanup in an effort to appease officials.Meanwhile, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has a hearing set for Feb. 28 to continue the fight through the courts. Activists across the country are also continuing their solidarity and demanding divestment from the pipeline. They have met some success, notably in Seattle, where the city broke ties with Wells Fargo for offering financial support to the pipeline. Now, 120 investors, whose combined assets amount to $653 billion, are feeling the pressure and have urged banks to support rerouting the pipeline.A call by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Indigenous grassroots leaders has also been made for a march on Washington, D.C., this March 10. More than an action against the Dakota Access Pipeline, the march will be an act of solidarity with all Indigenous peoples and a stand to protect Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth).As of right now, the march has three demands, as found on standwithstandingrock.net:“#TakeTheMeeting // President Trump must meet with tribal leaders to hear why it’s critical that the U.S. government respect tribal rights. This administration must work with us.“#ConsentNotConsultation // Tribal interests cannot continue to be marginalized in favor of the interests of corporations and other governments. Consultation is not enough — we must require consent.“#NativeNationsRise // The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. It has evolved into a powerful global phenomenon highlighting the necessity to respect Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. We are asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to rise with us.”Local actions will also be planned for those who cannot go to Washington.Workers World Party stands with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation and supports the self-determination of Indigenous peoples everywhere. We look forward to rising in solidarity this March.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NFU Urges Trump Administration to Oppose Dow-DuPont Merger

The merger, if approved by the U.S. Justice Department, would create the largest biotechnology and seed firm in the U.S.“The reduction in competition that would be wrought by a Dow-DuPont merger will result in less innovation, higher prices, and less choice for farmers,” said NFU President Roger Johnson in a letter to President Trump. “Given the damaging and lasting effects this merger will have on family farmers and rural America, we urge you to oppose this merger,” he said.Johnson noted that the Dow-DuPont merger occurs amidst a massive wave of consolidation in the agricultural inputs sector. The combination of the two companies, coupled with the concurrently proposed mergers of Bayer-Monsanto and ChemChina-Syngenta, threatens to limit major players in the agrichemical and seed sectors to just four companies.And that is bad news for farmers who rely on competitive pricing for their inputs.“The merger of Dow and DuPont, the 4th and 5th largest firms, would give the resulting company about 41% of the market for corn seeds and 38% of the market for soybean seeds,” said Johnson. “If the Dow-DuPont and Bayer-Monsanto mergers were both approved, there would effectively be a duopoly in the corn and soybean seed markets.”Johnson noted that the merger would limit choice in the marketplace for farmers. As Dow and DuPont look to leverage any efficiencies from the merger, there will be reductions in seed portfolios.He also noted that the merger will likely diminish innovation competition, as the elimination of direct competition from one another will reduce the incentive to develop new products.“Dow and DuPont biotechnology pipelines contain overlapping input and output traits in development for corn, soybeans, and cotton, as well as crop protection,” said Johnson. “Innovation is key to farmers and ranchers’ ability to increase crop production and improve crop quality. Without standalone competition between Dow and DuPont incentivizing innovation, farmers’ profits and consumers’ access to affordable food are at risk.”While Dow and DuPont agreed to sell some of their key research and development assets, mergers in this consolidated of an environment are difficult, if not impossible, to remedy, he concluded.“It is highly likely that many of those assets will be purchased by companies among the Big 6.  Therefore, any reallocation of share within the large incumbents through divestitures would only result in a game of market concentration ‘musical chairs.’” Name Sym Last Change Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program By Gary Truitt – Mar 29, 2017 Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 Wheat ZWN21 (JUL 21) 680.75 -3.00 NFU Urges Trump Administration to Oppose Dow-DuPont Merger How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Corn ZCN21 (JUL 21) 684.50 -14.50 Minor Changes in June WASDE Report Facebook Twitter All quotes are delayed snapshots Home Indiana Agriculture News NFU Urges Trump Administration to Oppose Dow-DuPont Mergerlast_img read more

Howard struck out 11, putting him over 100 punchouts on the season and allowed just four hits while walking two.“This place has meant so much to me over the past four years,” Howard said. “Everything from the coaches to the facility guys to the administration to everyone involved, it’s just been the best four years of my life. This stadium has been a huge part of it, and this fan group and everyone here in this town has accepted me. It just means a lot to go out like this.”Through his career, Howard pitched his best in the postseason. Howard is 6-0 in 12 postseason appearances with a 1.68 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 64.1 innings pitched. The Frog faithful will miss seeing that in Fort Worth, but he will have a chance to improve his already phenomenal legacy with his fourth trip to Omaha.“The thing about Brian is that you know the bigger the game, the more ready he is going to be,” TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “I love all of our pitchers, but when it’s on the line, and when you have a chance to win a championship or hold off elimination, you want ‘Big Game Howie’ out there.”TCU and Missouri State traded runs in the first, as Cam Warner singled home a run in the top of the inning while the Bears’ leadoff hitter Hunter Steinmetz hit a solo shot in the bottom of the inning.The Frogs answered the Missouri State run with one of their own in the top of the second when Nolan Brown reached base on an infield single and scored three pitches later on a double by Elliott Barzilli.Evan Skoug added cushion to the lead in the third, following a bunt single with his 20th home run of the season and fourth in five postseason games. Skoug has hit 16 long balls in the last 33 games and is the first Frog with 20 in a season since Chris Connelly in 1997.With Skoug expected to be a high selection in the Major League Draft that starts Monday, Sunday’s Super Regional was likely his last appearance at Lupton Stadium. In his three-year Horned Frog career so far, Skoug sits in the top five in RBIs and home runs and has meant even more to the team as a leader.TCU added an extra insurance run in the sixth as Skoug stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and drew a walk for his third RBI of the game and his 12th in five tournament games.Barzilli blew the game open in the top of the ninth with a three-run home run to put the Frogs ahead 8-1. The homer was also Barzilli’s last at bat at Lupton Stadium. Barzilli started his career at Georgia Tech, but has been a part of the last three Omaha teams.“I kind of thought about it,” Barzilli said of his last at-bat. “I just said ‘put a good at-bat together.’ I knew what that guy had, and I knew how he was going to attack me. I just want to hit it hard. I haven’t been swinging the bat as great as I want to, but I just wanted to have a good last at-bat.”Sean Wymer relieved for the second straight game and dominated just as he did in game one. Another five out performance by Wymer finished off the win and started the celebration.One constant for the Frogs over the course of their five NCAA tournament games thus far was the starting pitching. The combination of Mitchell Traver, Jared Janczak and Howard have gone 5-0 while tossing 35.1 innings to the tune of a 1.78 ERA.The Horned Frogs will look to their starting pitching for continued success as they will head to Omaha next weekend looking for their first ever National Title. TCU will play the winner of the Florida and Wake Forest Super Regional.“I couldn’t be more excited to win and get back to Omaha,” Schlossnagle said. “Let’s see if we can’t hang around just a little bit longer than the last couple of years.” ReddIt + posts Branson is a junior journalism major from Fort Worth, Texas.
