Most of the money (£2.35m) will be used to expand the provision of face-to-face treatment services in England, Scotland and Wales.A total of £705,000 will help the National Gambling Helpline provide advice and brief interventions to more people, while £435,000 will be spent on offering computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to more people, where clinically appropriate.In addition, £438,000 of the total investment will go towards developing peer support so that people who are recovering from gambling addiction can help others to access treatment and aftercare.“This announcement reflects a commitment by GambleAware to take a strategic approach to commissioning treatment services, to give people the help that they need to tackle the hidden addiction of problem gambling, and to improve the quality of life for them and their families,” GambleAware chief executive, Marc Etches, said.“This significant expansion of the existing National Gambling Treatment Service demonstrates the shared commitment between GambleAware and GamCare, as commissioner and prime provider respectively, to make a real difference to people’s lives, by reducing barriers to treatment and increasing the capacity in the treatment system.”Funds will begin to be distributed across these initiatives with immediate effect, supplementing the other developments that GambleAware and GamCare are also working on as part of a Grant Agreement running from 2018 to 2021.These projects include working with the Adfam charity to improve support for those affected by the gambling of others, and a major investment to open the NHS Northern Gambling Clinic and newly extended services from GamCare in Leeds this summer.Last week, GambleAware reiterated calls for UK operators to offer more financial support its problem gambling efforts after revealing that industry funding failed to meet its 2018-19 target.Voluntary donations from the industry during the 12 months to March 31, 2019 amounted to £9.6m, which, although up on the previous year, is short of the £10m that trustees of the problem gambling charity had asked of the market. GambleAware has confirmed it will invest an additional £3.9m (€4.5m/$5.0m) to help fund the expansion of the National Gambling Treatment Service through GamCare and its network of partners across Great Britain.last_img read more

2019 Rugby World Cup: Wales 35-13 Uruguay

TAGS: Uruguay Centre Parkes wasn’t the only one whose radar was off. The Wales display was littered with wayward passes and knock-ons, and the match simply wasn’t a great spectacle as the numerous errors resulted in a fractured game.Credit here must also paid to the Uruguay defence, which has been effective for much of this tournament.The Uruguayans tackle low and usually in pairs, which means ball-carriers are brought to ground rather than being able to make a few extra metres and get an offload away. Plus, Uruguay are then in a good position to slow the ball down at the ruck and duly won a few turnovers and penalties for holding on.Wales led only 7-6 at the break – a converted Nicky Smith try from close range in the 17th minute putting the men in red ahead before two Felipe Berchesi penalties closed the gap.First act: Justin Tipuric congratulates Nicky Smith for scoring the opening try (Getty Images)It took Wales more than 30 minutes to add to their score, Josh Adams crossing close to the 50-minute mark after a big carry from Bradley Davies. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Line-up: The teams get ready for the anthems in Kumamoto (Getty Images) center_img A penalty try followed a quarter of an hour later as Wales took advantage of Santiago Civetta being sin-binned to launch their driving maul and referee Angus Gardner ran under the posts as Uruguay infringed.Uruguay hit back when down to 14 men, though, and attacked from a five-metre lineout of their own. German Kessler was the man who touched the ball down.Wales finished with two tries from the two scrum-halves on the bench – Tomos Williams crossing after an initial break from Leigh Halfpenny and Gareth Davies running in a solo score from close to halfway following a quick tap penalty to close out the game.It gave the scoreline a more comfortable feel from Wales’ perspective but the match would have made uncomfortable viewing for Gatland.He can kick it: Uruguay fly-half Felipe Berchesi kicked well against Wales (Getty Images)Star ManLeigh Halfpenny got the official Man of the Match award and was Wales’ best player, but we’re opting for Andres Vilaseca. At the forefront of a determined and proud Uruguay side, the inside-centre carried hard when Uruguay were pinned in their own half and was regularly used to crash ball forward from scrums. Plus, he was a strong figure in defence.Related: Rugby World Cup TV CoverageThe ReactionWales coach Warren Gatland: “It’s about creating momentum and while it wasn’t the prettiest performance tonight, we dug in and we had some quality come off the bench. The scoreline probably reflected the difference of the two teams.“I have to take my hat off to Uruguay. They were tenacious and never gave up, making tackles and competing bard. They’re a tough outfit to put away.”Uruguay coach Esteban Meneses: “Our aim was to show our evolution through our play and performance, and I think we achieved that. We were able to play on a par with Wales and hang in there until half-time. In the second half, the score widened but we were also able to give a shock to Wales. We were able to display the spirit and DNA that is within us.”The TeamsWales: Leigh Halfpenny; Josh Adams (Gareth Davies 69), Owen Watkin, Hadleigh Parkes, Hallam Amos; Rhys Patchell, Aled Davies (Tomos Williams 60); Nicky Smith (Rhys Carre 52), Ryan Elias (Elliot Dee 52), Dillon Lewis (Wyn Jones 64), Bradley Davies, Adam Beard, Aaron Shingler, Justin Tipuric (captain, James Davies 60), Aaron Wainwright (Ross Moriarty 60).Tries: Smith 17, Adams 49, penalty 66, Williams 74, G Davies 84.

Agustin Ormaechea and Rodrigo Silva joined them when they came off the bench.Related: Rugby World Cup FixturesIn A NutshellYes, this was a much-changed Wales team. Yes, Wales had already booked their place in the quarter-finals. Yes, Uruguay had nothing to lose in their final match of this World Cup.Yet even taking all that into account this was a poor performance from Wales. Below-par would be too kind a description and it’s the opposite of how Warren Gatland would have wanted his side to build towards a last-eight tie against France in Oita next weekend.Rather than these fringe players putting their hands up for inclusion for the quarter-final match-day 23, there will have been a few black marks left next to names as they start preparations for the French match.Wales probably made more errors in this 80 minutes than they had in their three other pool matches combined. Twice Hallam Amos crossed the line, twice the try was ruled out for a forward pass from Hadleigh Parkes. And Amos made it a hat-trick of non-tries by dropping the ball over the line in the closing minutes. Wales make hard work of beating Uruguay in their final group game but will play France in the quarter-finalslast_img read more

Saracens relegated from Premiership – and docked further 70 points

first_imgSaracens were fined £5.3m and docked 35 points in November after the initial investigation found breaches in the past three seasons, but further sanctions have been imposed in recent weeks.Of the decision to relegate Saracens, Premiership Rugby chief executive Darren Childs said: “Premiership Rugby is prepared to take strong action to enforce the regulations governing fair competition between our clubs. At the conclusion of dialogue with Saracens about their compliance with the salary cap regulations, it has been decided that Saracens will be relegated at the end of this season. The squad: Saracens players in a huddle at Allianz Park (Getty Images) TAGS: Saracens Let us know what you think of the decision by emailing [email protected] Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Updated: Saracens relegated from PremiershipSaracens will be relegated from the Gallagher Premiership at the end of the season – and have been docked a further 70 points for salary cap breaches.Premiership Rugby confirmed the relegation decision on 18 January and then ten days later announced that Saracens had received a further deduction of 70 points, ensuring they will finish this season in 12th position in the table.The decision followed discussions with the RFU and was made “in order to provide clarity for clubs and supporters”.News of the 70-point deduction was preceded by the resignation of Saracens interim CEO Ed Griffiths, who said: “This was always going to be a very short-term appointment, and others are well-placed to drive forward the rebuilding of the club.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “At the same time as enforcing the existing regulations, we want to ensure a level playing field for all clubs in the future, which is why we have asked Lord Myners to carry out an independently-led review of the salary cap. As part of this process, we will soon be announcing an open consultation so that everyone involved in the game has the opportunity to contribute to its future.“The actions that we have taken – dealing with breaches of the current regulations and reviewing the system for the future – will help us to build a stronger league and uphold the confidence of supporters.”Euro campaign: Saracens in Champions Cup action against the Ospreys (Getty Images)Saracens will continue to compete in the Premiership for the rest of the season and will play in the European Champions Cup quarter-finals in April.Saracens chairman Neil Golding said: “As the new chairman of Saracens I acknowledge the club has made errors in the past and we unreservedly apologise for those mistakes.“I and the rest of the board are committed to overseeing stringent new governance measures to ensure regulatory compliance going forward.” Exeter Chairman Tony Rowe told BBC Devon: “They’ve taken relegation. They had two choices: they could either open up their books for a forensic audit, or they could take relegation. So it was their choice. They have decided to take relegation.” Premiership Rugby confirms further punishment for salary cap breacheslast_img read more

Even as the storm begins to pass there are many potential dangers inside and outside your home. Some tips to keep you and your family and pets safe include:Food and WaterIf you lose power, keep your refrigerator and freezer doors shut as much as possible to keep in the cold air.If you expect the power to be out for more than four hours, place a block of ice in the refrigerator.Partially thawed food may be cooked or refrozen if you can see ice crystals on the packaging or the food is still 40° Fahrenheit or lower.Food that has been refrigerated but has been warmer than 40° Fahrenheit for two hours or more should be thrown out.Any food that has an odd smell, look or feel should be thrown away. If in doubt, throw it away.Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you receive notification from your local government that the water supply is safe.If your tap water is not safe, bring it to a rolling boil for one minute before using.Home SafetyIf flooding threatens your home, turn off the electricity at the main breaker.Do not use electrical devices that have gotten wet. If the device is plugged in, turn off the power at the main breaker. Have the item checked by an electrician before use.Use flashlights rather than candles. If you do use candles, always stay nearby. Do not leave candles unattended.If you hear shifting or creaking noises, leave your home. It may be severely damaged and about to fall.Do not use gas or coal-burning equipment such as generators, grills and camp stoves inside. These items produce carbon monoxide, a gas you cannot smell or see. This dangerous gas can kill you or make you very sick.Outdoor SafetyAvoid walking or driving through flood water. The ground under water may be unstable or washed away, and the water may be hiding exposed, downed electrical lines.Watch for damaged power lines overhead.Use extreme caution during clean up and removal. Watch for falling or shifting trees and debris.Wear protective clothing and eye protection during clean up.Use power tools such as chain saws with great caution.Monitor flooding and watch for rising water.Keep children nearby and observe their activity carefully.PetsTake a current photo of each pet in case they become lost.Gather immunization records in case you need to evacuate.Keep pets inside.If your tap water is declared unsafe, be certain to boil your pet’s water and cool it before drinking.Your pet may be disoriented due to the storm and changes to their normal outdoor environment. Walk them on a leash and avoid hazards such as downed power lines, debris, snakes and stray animals.

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. A high ranking on search engine Google is an important objective for any charity promoting its Web site online. But will you retain your ranking when Google updates its index?Given Google’s dominance in the Web search engine market, it’s worth spending time tweaking your charity’s Web site’s design and link promotion to ensure that you have a high ranking on the site. A new free tool can help you track your ranking over time and perhaps even indicate how your ranking will perform when Google next updates its index.Some Web site owners believe that it is possible to view upcoming Google updates on the servers www2.google.com and www3.google.com. These are assumed to be test servers indicating the content of the next updates. Advertisement The Google Dance tool is a free Web-based tool that lets you view the search results on up to seven of these servers. This will help you assess whether your charity’s rankings are in danger of dropping, perhaps because of the improvement in ranking performance of a rival.The software is in beta test at the moment so makes no claims for its accuracy or reliability. But it’s still probably worth checking. On some days, like today, there appears to be no movement, but on several times that we have checked it against key words such as “cancer uk”, “blind uk” and “charity uk” we spotted noticeable movements in the rankings.If this doesn’t quite make sense, try searching for your own charity using its name or perhaps a generic keyword on the Google Dance.

Attacks on journalists a tangible symptom of growing polarisation

first_img RSF_en ArgentinaAmericas ArgentinaAmericas News Organisation At least 10 journalists from various media organizations have been assaulted, some seriously, in and near Buenos Aires in recent days. Such an outbreak of violence is unprecedented in a country where there is traditionally less physical risk to journalists than elsewhere in the region. However, it is a symptom of a growing climate of polarisation, which needs to be aired and resolved. “We strongly condemn this brutality and hope that exemplary punishment can ensure there is no repetition,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We welcome the protective measures announced by the federal government and the authorities in Buenos Aires province, mindful of the attacks on journalists outside the Claudio Zin Hospital.“Those who work in the media are encountering increasing hostility, according to whether they work for organizations that are state-run or privately-owned, pro- or anti-government, we believe rules for the safety and protection be established for the benefit of the profession as a whole. “The job could be entrusted to Congress with the support of journalists’ organizations and unions, in a spirit of consensus and to ensure pluralism.” Mariano Vega, a photographer with the daily Tiempo Argentino, Adrián Subelza of the newspaper Crónica, Julio Mosle, Federico Molinari and Florencia Downes of the state news agency Télam, and Ignacio Vaschetto of the website Malvinoticias were the main victims of the attack on 5 June in the Malvinas Argentinas district of Buenos Aires.The journalists were covering a demonstration outside the Claudio Zin Hospital over the death of a young girl through medical negligence when they came across a hostile group. The assailants claimed to be supporters of the mayor of the district, Julio Cariglino, who belongs to President Cristina Kirchner’s Justicialist Party, although a rival faction. A police patrol that arrived at the scene took no action, according to journalists who spoke to Reporters Without Borders. Mosle was thrown on to the hood of a police car and beaten with sticks. He lost two teeth and suffered multiple injuries.His colleagues Vega and Subelza were also roughed up and had their equipment smashed before they were forced to flee. Subelza told us: “They came after me when I went into the hospital to speak to the young girl’s uncle. They were well organized. As my colleague and I were leaving we were attacked outside by at least 40 people who asked us who we were. I replied that we were journalists and they started beating us.” December 4, 2019 Find out more News to go further June 8, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Attacks on journalists a tangible symptom of growing polarisation Half an hour after the journalists arrived, protesters who had been shouting insults at them started beating Sergio Loguzzo, Lucas Martínez and Ezequiel Schneider.The latter told Reporters Without Borders that his colleague Loguzzo was pushed to the ground. “He got up and they pushed him back down on the ground then beat him,” he said. “Lucas was also beaten.”The next day, the same group of protesters was waiting for the journalists as they left the hospital, trapping them there until 1 a.m. The three were also assaulted in similar circumstances on 22 May outside the Buenos Aires courthouse. Schneider said he believed they were targeted because they worked for a state media organization.“This must encourage the profession as a whole to reflect on its practices and also any programmes or views that might put at risk reporters who come into direct contact with the public,” Reporters Without Borders said.“What the ‘6,7,8’ team suffered is borne out by colleagues working for privately-owned media groups that take a critical position who have been insulted and sometimes assaulted by government supporters. This polarisation, for which the media themselves must assume much of the responsibility, represents a significant danger for freedom of news and information.” The press freedom organization hopes for a swift outcome to the investigation into the death threat made against the radio journalist Gustavo Tinetti on 29 May in the town of 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires province as he was preparing to broadcast his regular programme on Cadena Nueve radio via its online network online and the station FM 89.9 Máxima. An unidentified man armed with a pistol ordered him to stop broadcasting “the rest of the information we know you have”, then referred to the journalist’s daughters before leaving. Tinetti is responsible for revelations that have embarrassed the mayor of 9 de Julio, Walter Battistella. On 1 June a similar attack took place on a crew from the highly controversial programme “6,7,8” on the state-run television station Canal 7, during an anti-government “cacerolazo” (pot-banging) march in the capital’s Barrio Norte district).
