BetBlocker secures first corporate funding from CasinoGuide

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Finance 13th January 2020 | By contenteditor BetBlocker, the UK-facing responsible gambling app funded and developed by alternative dispute mediation service, has secured its first corporate donation from online casino comparison website CasinoGuide.Though BetBlocker did not state how much the donation was worth, it did say that the funding will permit CasinoGuide to display the BetBlocker gold tier donation seal on its sites. This seal links to a verification page on the BetBlocker website.BetBlocker said it will use the donation to upgrade certain functionality on its mobile iOS app in order to make the restriction more robust and harder to bypass.The BetBlocker app enables users to self-exclude from gambling by blocking access to more than 6,700 participating igaming websites. Once a user has activated the block, they are unable to reverse this until the exclusion period has ended.“What makes CasinoGuide’s actions even more special is the nature of their business,” BetBlocker charity trustee and manager, Duncan Garvie, said. “Unlike UK licensed operators who have a licence-based obligation to make a contribution to a relevant responsible gambling-based charity on an annual basis, CasinoGuide are an affiliate site and are subject to no obligations to make any donation whatsoever.“We had fully anticipated that operators would become enthusiastic partners as the project developed and the industry became more aware of the tool we are offering, but I’m personally bowled over that it has been an affiliate to step forward first.“The lack of any requirement or expectation to make such a donation differentiates their actions and defines this action as truly charitable.”Alex Tester, project manager of CasinoGuide, added: “At CasinoGuide, we believe that the service we provide carries an inherent responsibility to promote responsible gambling behaviour.“We are therefore delighted to be the first corporate donor for BetBlocker, thereby assisting in the further development of an extremely valuable tool available across several platforms free of charge.”The donation comes after BetBlocker in November last year was approved as a charity in the UK.

Nick Abendanon’s try saving tackle on Zee Ngwenya

first_imgThursday Oct 14, 2010 Nick Abendanon’s try saving tackle on Zee Ngwenya Biarritz beat Bath 12-11 in a low scoring but tense game at the Rec on the weekend. Bath failed to take their chances in the Heineken Cup home game, but this quick clip is of a nice try saving tackle that was requested earlier in the week.Bath scored an excellent try via Michael Claasons that followed a fantastic piece of quick hands by Olly Barkley, but it was Dimitri Yachvili of Biarritz that controlled matters as he kicked four penalties to make sure the visitors left with the win.Barkley did have a chance late in the game to have a crack with a drop goal, but for whatever reason Bath chose to move the ball wide, resulting in a turnover and a blundered opportunity. Coach Steve Meehan has since said that his team needs to grow up.“It’s actually quite difficult to put into words,” said head coach Meehan. “We played a very good first half – we got all the decisions right – but a few technical penalties went against us in the second half. And then with four minutes to go, we had an opportunity to win the match, but we didn’t take it.”“We’ve got to grow up and take the points. It’s straightforward, it is about being ruthless, getting the job done and getting it through the sticks. Simple. Drop-goals and penalties win games. They kick the penalties and keep the scoreboard ticking over. We had the opportunity and didn’t take it,” he added.Besides the try, there was another highlight for Bath and that was this well timed tackle by fullback Nick Abendanon as speedster Zee Ngwenya got the ball in a tiny bit of space, all he needs usually. If Abendanon hadnt committed then, the flying Eagles wing would have been gone for all money. A memorable moment from a frustrating day for the home side.

€6m development announced for Castletroy Park Hotel in Limerick

first_imgLinkedin News€6m development announced for Castletroy Park Hotel in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – May 29, 2017 1583 TAGScastletroy park hotelfeaturedlimerickMichael NoonanPat McDonagh Pat McDonagh and Minister Michael Noonan in Limerick this Monday Pat McDonagh and Minister Michael Noonan in Limerick this MondayTHE Castletroy Park Hotel is to undergo a major new development as it embarks on €6m expansion plan over the next 18 months.Supermacs and Só Hotels owner Pat McDonagh, made the announcement this Monday in a plan that will see the size of the hotel increase by almost 50 per cent above its existing 107 bedrooms and executive suites.The expansion will also see a new state of the art fitness and leisure facility and a corporate business hub developed. Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan, TD was in Limerick this Monday to announce the plans with Mr McDonagh.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The development will see €6million invested in the Limerick economy over the next 18 months and 110 jobs will be supported during the construction phase of the project. An additional 40 permanent jobs will be created in the Hotel itself. The project will generate an estimated €30million in the Limerick economy over the next 10 years.Speaking of the city as a location for business Mr McDonagh said that few places in the country come near Limerick in terms of what it offers the corporate, leisure and sports tourism sectors.“A recent study indicated that Limerick has overtaken Dublin in terms of job vacancy rate. The region is now a business hot spot and the physical infrastructure around the city is changing dramatically. There is a significant motorway network feeding the city plus an international airport in Shannon on our doorstep,” Mr McDonagh said.The Castletroy Park Hotel which was originally founded by Chuck Feeney the noted American philanthropist, was envisioned from the very outset as a top-rated facility complementing the status of the University of Limerick status and he is committed to continuing to deliver on that vision”, he added.Mr McDonagh, who is a graduate of Mary Immaculate College, described Limerick as the Irish ‘capital of education’. He said this investment is a vote of confidence in Limerick and he said he is hugely impressed with the success of the city in attracting national and international business investment as well as the progressive steps being taken to address lifestyle, amenity and urban development.The Galway native praised the University of Limerick which he said has grown from 100 students 40 years ago to being currently one of the biggest and most enterprising Irish universities.  He said the recent appointment of Professor Des Fitzgerald as UL President is testimony to the ability of the institution to attract the best and brightest to Limerick.Mr McDonagh said that developments at Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology have paralleled the pace of development at UL and he said the student population of the city is now on a par with the total population of most Irish county towns. Mr. McDonagh went on to say that Limerick is now reaping the rewards of its reform of administration into one single city and county municipal authority. “I believe that the reformed council, under its CEO Conn Murray, will lead Limerick to a prime place among international city’s,” he said.Minister Noonan said that this development was a huge vote of confidence in the Ireland’s third city and one that will compliment but the hotel and the surrounding infrastructure that will benefit from it.An application seeking planning permission for the development will be lodged with Limerick City and County Council this week.

Therefore the Court directed that interim orders in connection to proceedings under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instruments Act “need not be enforced until May 31, 2021.””We are of the view that the orders passed by this Court during the first lockdown period are to be revived”, the Court stated, pointing out that the High Powered Committee constituted under the Court’s prior covid suo motu proceedings already met and passed orders relating to paroles and interim bail of prisoners.In its Order, the Court directs the Registry to send copies of this order for the information of all those concerned, including the Director General of Prisons and Correctional Service and the print and visual media for intimation of the public.Interim Bail ConditionsThe prisoners released on interim bail, as mentioned above, shall report to the local police station within their place of residence, immediately on reaching its jurisdiction.

The learned Principal Sessions Judge or any Additional Sessions Judge authorised in this behalf or to whom such bail applications are made over, shall deal with such bail applications in accordance with the above said directions and on the basis of the modalities which will be prescribed by issuing relevant instructions.”Additionally, the Court pointed out that there were sufficient benches for the consideration of extremely urgent cases (both pending and future caes), including bail applications.On movement of AdvocatesAdvocate Thomas Abraham, President of the Kerala High Court Bar, apprised the Court of inconveniences faced by Advocates, clerks and staff, as a result of the lockdown restrictions.Taking note of State Government’s orders providing a mechanism to grant permission for movement in emergent situations, the Court directed the appropriate statutory authorities/police to consider any application or declaration or information, as the case may be, received from the lawyers, physically or through electronic mode, for their movement and also the movement of clerks and other required staffs.Additional Advocate General Ranjith Thampan submitted that a mechanism would be evolved. The Full Bench exhorted the State to “act immediately, as assured.”This suo motu petition is expected to be taken up after May 31, 2021.CASE: SUO MOTU V.
