Gaming1 introduces responsible gambling training for all employees

first_imgGaming1’s chief executive, Emmanuel Mewissen, commented: “The legal sector only makes sense if it effectively protects the players. It is our responsibility as legal actors in the world of games of chance to also fight against addiction.” Any customers identified as being at the highest risk level according to its modelling, would be provided with quick and comprehensive assistance from its in-house team of player protection specialists, it said. Topics: Casino & games Social responsibility Sports betting Problem gambling Responsible gambling The objective of its partnership with the Brugmann University Hospital is to contribute to behavioural research on players and create training modules based around the needs of each job role within the company. As unregulated online operators are readily available in the market, it said, it takes responsibility to fight against gambling addiction by offering players a responsible, managed gaming environment. The busines said its mission in the industry was to provide the best responsible gaming experience to its customers in regulated online markets. Employee training has now become a key part of the operator’s strategy to keep responsible gambling at the core of its business, and a newly created responsible gaming department will now coordinate all related initiatives, it added. “Today we want to be able to open your eyes and explain the dangers linked to excessive gaming. I would like everyone in our company to be aware of this issue and to work together to create a strong legal sector.” Gaming1 released a new suite of artificial intelligence-based responsible gambling tools in August last year, which are intended to monitor customer behaviour and identify any early signs of problem gambling. The module also trains employees on key risk indicators and detection tools which will allow them to more readily identify vulnerable players. The module covers the issue of responsible gaming as a whole, Gaming1 said, and includes information on governance, prevention and protection tools, and awareness for employees and players. All of the company’s employees have now taken part in the first responsible gaming training module, which will also be given to all new employees as part of their on-boarding process. 21st January 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Responsible gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Belgium Ardent Group-owned operator and supplier of casino and sports betting products, Gaming1, has created a new responsible gaming training course for its employees, in partnership with the Gaming Clinic at Brugmann University Hospital.

Curry and President of the House of Deputies the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings.Dear People of God in the Episcopal Church:In early 2018, we issued a call for The Episcopal Church to come to a fuller understanding of how it has handled or mishandled cases of sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse through the years. That work began to take shape at General Convention 2018 when the House of Deputies Special Committee on Sexual Harassment and Exploitation submitted more than twenty resolutions and the House of Bishops held a Liturgy of Listening to lament and confess the church’s role in harassment, exploitation and abuse.Since General Convention, several task forces have been hard at work carrying out the resolutions of convention that address gender-based discrimination and violence. Today we are asking you to assist one of those groups—the Task Force on Women, Truth and Reconciliation—by taking an online survey designed to assess patterns of church-based harassment and abuse and the effect that it has on victims. Please take the survey online by July 1, 2020.We know that recalling and recounting experiences of abuse and harassment can be difficult. We urge anyone who feels the need for pastoral care to seek support from their clergyperson or bishop, which can include a referral to local mental health resources. In addition, anyone can make a complaint against a clergyperson or bishop under the disciplinary canons of the church, called the Title IV canons. More information about that process is available on the Title IV website.The Task Force on Women, Truth and Reconciliation is tasked with “making an accounting of things done and left undone in thought, word, and deed, intending amendment of life, and seeking counsel, direction, and absolution as we are restored in love, grace, and trust with each other through Christ.” Thank you in advance for taking their online survey, which is part of this work.Please join us in praying for all victims and survivors of sexual abuse, violence and harassment, and in supporting the work of this task force and all those who are helping the church to be a community of safety that stands against the spiritual and physical violence of sexual exploitation and abuse.Faithfully,The Most Rev.

More Americans say they plan to get COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible: Poll

first_imgRidofranz/iStockBy STEPHANIE EBBS, ABC News(NEW YORK) — An increasing number of Americans are anxious to get COVID-19 vaccines as the rollout continues, with more than half of Americans saying they plan to get vaccinated as soon as possible or have already received at least one dose.More than 13% of the adult population has received at least one dose, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data, and more than 6% are fully vaccinated with the two-dose regimen required for the available vaccines.The new figures from a Kaiser Family Foundation poll show that anticipation for the vaccines is growing. At least 55% of Americans have received the vaccine or plan to get vaccinated as soon as possible, according to new results released Friday, compared to 47% in January.The supply of available vaccines still can’t meet demand, but the number of doses is expected to increase in the coming weeks, with enough doses for 130 million adults expected by the end of March.One in five Americans also report they are willing to get vaccinated but plan to wait, a decrease from 31% in January. Black Americans and young adults are more likely to say they want to wait and see how the vaccine works for people who already got it.But a notable percentage of Americans still have concerns, with one in five saying they are reluctant to get the vaccine. About 7% of adults say they would only get the vaccine if it is required and 15% say they definitely will not get it.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

HR Tech: Why customers should be at the centre of every software investment

first_img Previous Article Next Article No comments yet. Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply.Comment Name (required) Email (will not be published) (required) Website HR Tech: Why customers should be at the centre of every software investmentBy Jo Faragher on 8 Dec 2017 in HR Tech Talk, HR transformation, People analytics, HR strategy, Personnel Today, HR Technology HR tech customers increasingly approach suppliers with a list of ‘wants’, rather than trying to fit around the technology Workday’s VP of product strategy for EMEA, Mark Judd, used to be one of the cloud-based software vendor’s customers. Now he’s advising HR and IT professionals on how to invest in HR technology to achieve true business transformation. He speaks to Personnel Today about the customer-supplier relationship. HR tech and transformationHR Tech World Amsterdam: Data and digital detox top the agendaGood practice manual: HR transformationAt the latest HR Tech World conference in Amsterdam last month, delegates were keener than ever to hear customer stories.With new HR technologies being released all the time and the pace of change accelerating, it was important to hear who had “been there, done that”.Mark Judd, EMEA vice president of product strategy at software company Workday, was able to see their concerns from both sides.He joined the company this year after a long stint in HR, industrial relations and consultancy, most recently as HRIT solutions director at Rolls-Royce.During that time he had been a Workday customer and had overseen numerous major software implementations, so can empathise with HR departments’ concerns and questions when investing in technology.“As a customer, a huge amount of decision-making around technology investment is about chemistry,” he says.“Selecting the provider is only about a third of the process. The first is often a debate about whether to use cloud, and the other part focuses on transformation – looking at processes to see how you can make the business more agile.”Drive the decisionsActively engaging with the software provider rather than allowing the technology to shape decisions is crucial, he adds.“Customers like to feel they’re part of the overall framework. It should be ‘What do you want to do, what sort of business do you want to be?’“HR needs to lead that thinking. It also needs to think more broadly about transformation than pure technology.”A recent report into the state of digital transformation found that companies still have some way to go to catch up with their tech-savvy customers. Judd believes that some companies are leading a charge in this direction, however.“Some of the early adopters are looking at advances in self-service, the use of apps and mobile access,” he says. “There has been a big push for us [at Workday] to introduce chatbots or other tools that will drive advances in business processes.”Many of the challenges faced by HR teams derive from business structures and outdated processes, he adds.“Businesses want corporate agility but there’s still a lot to do on the process side and the design of the HR function itself.“Many businesses are still de-federated, with teams that have never done things in the same way and can’t run as a single organisation, but would like to.“There’s also a trend towards the movement of work as well as the movement of people. Activities such as manufacturing and software design can happen across different locations.”Added agilityWhat’s making a difference now is that they can see change a lot more quickly than a decade or more ago when an HR technology implementation would take years. Now it’s more of a “quality, controlled explosion” than a big bang that sends shockwaves across the business, he says.“Transition to the cloud can be done in shorter timescales now, so CEOs can get the single view of their workforce they’re asking for. It’s more affordable too.”And as with many companies showcasing their technology at the HR Tech World forum in Amsterdam, data and how to get the best out of it was a key theme for Workday.The company now offers customers the chance to benchmark aspects of their HR activities against other customers by analysing millions of aggregated data points.Judd adds: “Users want to know the outcomes of their activities, and the insight generated from bringing together multiple data points. This could be supporting an employee with career progression, helping a manager with performance management comparisons, or showing specialists where their retention risks or talent opportunities are.”Getting HR transformation right and driving return on investment requires there to be a solid team in place, he concludes.“You need certain things in place such as good governance. Centres of excellence can really drive the agenda forward – they see it as an opportunity. Finally, find the right sponsors for your implementation, and foster a good relationship with IT because this isn’t just an HR change.” Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

The response of the ionosphere-thermosphere system to the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse

first_imgWe simulated the effects of the 21 August 2017 total solar eclipse on the ionosphere‐thermosphere system with the Global Ionosphere Thermosphere Model (GITM). The simulations demonstrate that the horizontal neutral wind modifies the eclipse‐induced reduction in total electron content (TEC), spreading it equatorward and westward of the eclipse path. The neutral wind also affects the neutral temperature and mass density responses through advection and the vertical wind modifies them further through adiabatic heating/cooling and compositional changes. The neutral temperature response lags behind totality by about 35 min, indicating an imbalance between heating and cooling processes during the eclipse, while the ion and electron temperature responses have almost no lag, indicating they are in quasi steady state. Simulated ion temperature and vertical drift responses are weaker than observed by the Millstone Hill Incoherent Scatter Radar, while simulated reductions in electron density and temperature are stronger. The model misses the observed posteclipse enhancement in electron density, which could be due to the lack of a plasmasphere in GITM. The simulated TEC response appears too weak compared to Global Positioning System TEC measurements, but this might be because the model does not include electron content above 550‐km altitude. The simulated response in the neutral wind after the eclipse is too weak compared to Fabry Perot interferometer observations in Cariri, Brazil, which suggests that GITM recovers too quickly after the eclipse. This could be related to GITM heating processes being too strong and electron densities being too high at low latitudes.last_img read more

Tdi-Brooks acquires Gregg Drilling’s Cpt Cone manufacturing capability

first_img Source: Company Press Release TDI-Brooks has also purchased assets houses there, including machinery, test equipment, and inventory to manufacture these cones Tdi-Brooks acquires Cpt Cone manufacturing capability. (Credit: TDI-Brooks International, Inc) In a strategic move, TDI-Brooks International, Inc. has entered into an agreement to acquire Gregg Drilling’s CPT cone manufacturing capability in Nacogdoches, Texas. The premises were secured the last week in May 2020, which includes offices, laboratory, machine shop and warehouse space where Gregg Drilling’s cone penetrometers are designed, manufactured and maintained. TDI-Brooks has also purchased assets houses there, including machinery, test equipment, and inventory to manufacture these cones.This acquisition provides TDI-Brooks full design, manufacturing, maintenance, and calibration capabilities of specialized cones designed for our CPT-Stinger and gravity CPT (gCPT) used in offshore marine geotechnical programs. Purchase of these assets will allow TDI-Brooks to continue to offer a wide array of advanced Cone Penetrometer Testing capabilities, as well as to develop more new features and new tools.Use of tools such as the cone penetrometer, combined with laboratory testing at TDI-Brooks, enables the identification of soil layers for offshore site characterization studies. This tool consists of a cone-tipped probe, or penetrometer, which when pushed into the soil collects cone resistance, sleeve friction and pore pressure data used for identifying soil type and profiling soil strength.The CPT-Stinger installed in a JPC core-head, is deployed and triggered with the well-proven TDI-Brooks JPC process, allowed to free-fall ballistically to insert itself into the sediment like a JPC while constantly collecting and storing CPT data.  Once fully embedded in the seafloor with the necessary resulting reaction force now available, the CPT-Stinger is programmed to extend a rod from inside the barrel deeper into the formation (like a stinger) at the standard ASTM (static) cone push rate.last_img read more

Cambridge to teach four year olds

The Cambridge Faculty of Education is set to establish a three-form entry primary school, focussing on research-based teaching and learning practice.The University of Cambridge Training School (UCTS) will provide practical training for students taking the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at Cambridge while also teaching 630 four- to six-year-olds.The plans have received support from some locals, including Nick Robinson, headmaster of King’s College School, who praised the University for, “leading the way in developing research-based exemplary teaching and learning among primary children.” He also looked forward to more widespread change, saying, “I hope that this will lead to Oxford and other Universities also following suit as it will undoubtedly lead to an excellent model for teacher training and school focussed academic research.”Professor Ernesto Macaro, director of the Faculty of Education, put forward the newly established Oxford Education Deanery as Oxford’s, “way of responding to the current challenges and opportunities in England in relation to initial teacher education, professional development of teachers and in general the improvement of standards in schools.” The scheme works in conjunction with existing local schools, attempting to strengthen links between them and the University PGCE course.Professor of Teacher Education, Ian Mentor, suggested that the Oxford Education Deanery’s educational network meant that there is no need for a similar school in Oxford. He commented, “Given the range of schools within the city and the county that the University already has strong relationships with, it was decided that there were unlikely to be any major benefits in setting up yet another school.”Opinion amongst students was similarly divided. One student was reluctant to support a primary school “specifically designed for teacher training and research. It might create an artificial environment and skew potential conclusions drawn from the research due to the narrow pool from which the teachers are chosen.”A spokesperson from Cambridge’s Education and Access department assured Cherwell that the scheme would be state-run and wholly inclusive. read more
