Operators to donate virtual Grand National profits to NHS

first_img Operators to donate virtual Grand National profits to NHS AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Casino & games Regions: UK & Ireland A group of major gambling operators have announced that they will donate any profits from this Saturday’s virtual Grand National event to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). Topics: Casino & games Finance Social responsibility Sports betting Video gaming CSR A group of major gambling operators have announced that they will donate any profits from this Saturday’s virtual Grand National event to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).The funds will be sent to NHS Charities Together, the umbrella organisation that represents more than 140 approved NHS charities that collectively contribute £1m (€1.1m/$1.2m) a day to support the NHS.Standards body the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) said the initiative has the support of a number of its members including bet365, William Hill, Sky Bet, Flutter Entertainment, GVC, BetFred and BetVictor.The BGC said it had also agreed with NHS Charities Together that stakes on the virtual horse racing event would be limited to £10 per horse per customer or £10 each way per horse. In addition, the Tote will run a pool on the race and donate any profits to charity.The virtual Grand National will run on 4 April, the same day this year’s edition of the actual Grand National had been due to take place. Last month, The Jockey Club, the governing body of horse racing in the UK, announced the 2020 event would not run as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.“With the UK understandably and rightly in lockdown, unfortunately the Grand National can’t take place,” BGC chief executive Michael Dugher said. “However the virtual Grand National will be the closest we can get to creating one of those moments when we can all come together in celebration, not just for the world’s greatest sporting events, but for the NHS heroes working on the front line to keep us all safe.“I am delighted that our members have stepped up in this way to support the national effort to combat Covid-19 by contributing all of their race profits to NHS Charities Together. Millions of us love a flutter on the Grand National.”ITV will broadcast the virtual event in partnership with Carm Productions and Inspired Entertainment. The race has been pre-recorded and only a small number of people will know the outcome – all of who will be subject to strict confidentiality obligations.The Grand National is not the only horseracing event to have fallen victim to the coronavirus, with the British Horseracing Authority last month announcing that all races in Great Britain will be suspended until at least the end of April.All Irish horseracing has also been suspended for the foreseeable future, with the Irish Grand National, scheduled to run on 13 April also facing cancellation or at least a postponement.

Brazil’s President Bolsonaro insults and threatens TV Globo

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s dangerous use of threats, insults and hate speech against TV Globo in response to a report on its main evening news programme yesterday mentioning his name in connection with last year’s murder of a Rio de Janeiro councilwoman. April 15, 2021 Find out more During a 24-minute tirade live-streamed on Facebook, he said: “The journalism you do is rotten, corrupt and immoral. You’re useless! You’re useless! You just publish lies.” He went on to threaten TV Globo with non-renewal of its broadcasting licence in 2022 and, on Twitter, he later posted a photo of a sewer superimposed on the TV channel’s logo. BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Freedom of expressionPredatorsViolence Reports News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America The report on TV Globo’s “Jornal Nacional,” Brazil’s most popular nightly TV news programme, said President Bolsonaro’s name had been mentioned by one of the witnesses in the investigation into the March 2018 murder of Marielle Franco, a well-known human rights and LGBT activist as well as member of the Rio de Janeiro city council. Source: Facebook October 30, 2019 Brazil’s President Bolsonaro insults and threatens TV Globo This video was quickly deleted from his account and he issued an apology, recognizing that he had “made a mistake.” “President Jair Bolsonaro’s ‘mistakes’ and statements will have far-reaching consequences,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “By insulting and humiliating some of Brazil’s most important media, the country’s highest authority is feeding and sustaining a climate of hatred and mistrust towards Brazilian journalism. These repeated attacks are very worrying and Bolsonaro’s threats not to renew TV Globo’s broadcast frequencies in 2022 are extremely serious. They amount to direct censorship.” Bolsonaro, who is currently on a long tour of Asia and the Middle East, reacted furiously on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, insisting on his innocence and accusing TV Globo of “betraying” and “destroying” the country. “Despicable bastards, you are not patriots”, he said. In reaction to the president’s insults, the Globo media group issued a statement saying it did “serious and responsible journalism” and that it had broadcast the report “on the basis of an official witness statement” that contradicted the investigation’s initial findings.

The crown prince is suspected of direct involvement in Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder inside the Saudi embassy in Istanbul on 2 October 2018. Brazil is ranked 105th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. News The day before this tirade, a video montage posted on the president’s Twitter account showed him as a lion being attacked by hyenas, each of which were labelled with the names of political opponents, leading national media outlets such as Globo, the newspaper Folha de São Paulo, the magazine Veja and radio Jovem Pan, and with the initials of the UN, the Brazilian supreme court and several political parties including his own, the PSL, with which he currently has differences.

HR distrusts home workers because of lack of checks

first_img Comments are closed. Nearly half of HR directors don’t trust their staff to perform effectivelyif they are working from home reveals research. The survey of nearly 300 HR directors at companies in the UK, France,Germany and the Netherlands shows 45 per cent of respondents are concernedabout their employees’ self-discipline to work effectively while out of theoffice. The study by global consultants LogicaCMG suggests this stems from the factthat 46 per cent of employers have no way of effectively monitoring mobileworkers. The survey also reveals that most company policies on mobile working areinadequate. In the UK, 62 per cent of training for mobile workers focuses on use of thetechnology, while just 20 per cent is devoted to effective communication techniquesand 16 per cent to time management. Most of the companies that encourage mobile working rely on rudimentary waysof monitoring staff performance such as logging mobile phone or internet useand written reports to line managers. Paul Barker, international solutions director at LogicaCMG, said employerswould have to become better at managing homeworkers as the demands for flexibleworking increase. www.logicacmg.com HR distrusts home workers because of lack of checksOn 11 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
