Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter EGBA launched its advertising code in April 2020. It includes a section on content moderation and how gambling advertising should look, as well as a focus on minor protection, whereby adverts should not be shown during broadcasts dedicated to minors, while also setting out details regarding age screening tools on social media to protect minors. “EGBA’s responsible advertising code puts this commitment into action and independent third-party monitoring of the code will support both compliance and trust in the code. center_img “We hope gambling authorities around Europe will acknowledge the efforts made by EGBA members to raise the bar in responsible advertising standards.”  The code also covers first-of-their-kind measures for social media marketing, in terms of age-gating on the social media profiles of gambling brands to ensure minors do not have access.

  • Mix up your menu by playing Cuisine Bingo

A fun way to mix up meals is by setting up a game of cuisine bingo, where you have a card filled with different meals and you work your way through each one until you get a line and then work towards a full house.You can dedicate a row to cuisines from different countries or regions, or even use restaurants and copy their signature dishes. Here are some additional ideas to make the menu bingo a bit more fun:Source: PixabayPlaylists to match mealsPlaying music to match where the meals originate from adds an extra element to your cuisine bingo. From playing Italian opera music whilst eating your lasagne to traditional Mexican party music to go with your fajitas, music can make your meals much more fun. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Drinks to complement the dishesSource: PixabayIf you don’t know much about pairing wines to dishes then learning about it can be very interesting. Find out which wine is best to serve with your chilli king prawns, or what red is the best to pair with your fillet steak. Learning about the six types of tastes to understand when pairing food and wine will help you to improve dinner parties or simply enjoy the taste of your meals more.Traditional dressIt could also be fun to wear traditional dress of the country that your dish is from, especially if you try and make the costumes yourself. Get as creative as you want to, or simply wear a t-shirt with a design that has a link to the country. You could even put some flags up around the room if you really want to get into the theme.How to make your bingo cardAll you need is a sheet of paper and then you will need to draw out the gamecard. The numbers used in bingo differ depending on which game you are playing. The traditional game is a 90-ball game, but you can adapt this depending on how long you want to carry on playing menu bingo for. You could make your card a lot smaller, with just 27 squares instead, with three rows and nine columns.If you want to understand how the game plays out, you could try an online version. Once you start playing, you will see the format of despatching online bingo balls one at a time randomly to go through the numbers until the game is won by one of the players. You could select your cuisine number by using the online game or an online number generator, or you could even buy your own bingo ball generator machine if you think you will get good use out of it.Eating the same meals every week can be good for making sure you get a well-balanced diet but if you want to spice things up a bit, introduce bingo menu to your household.last_img read more

  • Casa Gotmar 138 / Miquel Àngel Lacomba

    first_img “COPY” Projects 2010 Save this picture!Courtesy of Miquel Àngel LacombaText description provided by the architects. The steep slope of the plot and its location towards the north where there are views over the mountains and the forest, have been essential in providing the guidelines for this design. The execution of the project seeks to maintain the pine and oak tree forests, and avoiding the displacement of great amounts of soil. Consequently, the parking area is levelled to the public road, designed with a light structure amidst the trees, avoiding, therefore, the use of inconvenient slopes into the ground. Save this picture!Courtesy of Miquel Àngel LacombaThe distribution of the spaces in the building allowed the construction of a south facing deck, as well as the living room, enjoying a warm and intimate space. The possibility of entering the house through the roof, implies the construction of an exterior staircase integrated in the first floor, where the bedrooms are located. On the ground floor, the living, dining and kitchen areas are situated in one single space. This floor is also double-oriented: to the south facing deck and to the north facing landscape views. The studio, in front of the main house, also enjoys the views thanks to a sliding wooden door.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miquel Àngel LacombaThe communication with the exterior is organised through a clear axis, with the staircase that adapts itself to the natural environment respecting the trees along its course.

  • Facebook’s news feed to prioritise personal content over organisations’

    first_imgSource: RaiseThru AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis25 Why the change?Mosseri stated that Facebook will “prioritise posts from friends and family over public content, consistent with our News Feed values.”This suggests that the move is, in part, Facebook’s response to accusations that it has helped spread “fake news” and other manipulative content. It also might be responding to users’ expectations to see more relevant, personal content from friends, family members and other individual contacts.Mark Zuckerberg himself confirmed the latter in his message explaining the changes. He wrote: “we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content – posts from businesses, brands and media – is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.”Here’s what Zuckerberg had to say:  208 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis25 It is not exactly new. In June 2016 Facebook announced that it was prioritising friends and family content to keep you “connected to the people, places and things you want to be connected to — starting with the people you are friends with on Facebook.”What should charities do?Chasing every last tweak that Facebook makes to its service is not the best use of fundraisers’ time. Indeed, just using Facebook in a more considered way could be a good tactic for many charities in the fact of this change.That said, this change could prove a challenge, especially for charities that rely on Facebook to drive traffic and actions. It is a substantial shift. Zuckerberg confirms that, saying: “we’re making a major change to how we build Facebook. I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content to helping you have more meaningful social interactions.”The good news for charities is:the renewed focus on peer-to-peer communications plays to charities’ strengths, whether large or small. Charities thrive on connecting and inspiring like-minded individuals to take collective action.content from pages will still appear in followers feedvideo content is still a good way of generating engagement via posts. Live videos in particular “on average get six times as many interactions as regular videos”, according to Facebook.posts that people respond to – by sharing, liking and commenting – still have a better opportunity of being displayed than those that don’tThe bad news for charities is:small charities might find it hard to compete against larger ones for the volume of engagement they attractsmall charities might not have enough resources to check Facebook data on what works, test content and then implement what they findsmall charities could find it hard to find the resources to create and manage effectively a Facebook groupWhich tactics to adopt and test?Charities could invite Facebook followers to choose ‘See First in News Feed Preferences’ to make sure they always see posts from their favourite Pages. But how many will actually do that?Develop Facebook groups because there is often more conversation (‘engagement’) here than on Pages. But there is only any point in doing so if you can manage such a group well, and can be sure it will make up for the expected loss in Page coverage.Focus again on learning which kind of Page posts perform best, and emulate those. Focus on understanding your audience’s interests and the kind of content they respond to.Work harder to generate comments, answers and other responses from Page posts. Don’t broadcast – listen and communicate.Can your higher profile supporters, staff, volunteers and donors use their personal Facebook posts more to spread your charity’s messages and calls to action?Don’t forget to focus on non-Facebook channels, especially those that you control e.g. email communications.More suggestions and commentVinay Nair of Lightful told UK Fundraising: “I think we should welcome moves to improve Facebook and generally the quality of engagement on social media. I do think there are some challenges for charities, particularly as the reach of ‘organic’ posts and pages with limited engagement reduces visibility. However, the purpose of the algorithm change is to improve “community” and “meaningful social interactions”, which play directly to the sector’s strengths.“Unlike most businesses and brands, people are keen to amplify the stories of the causes they care about and how they are fundraising and supporting them. Doing this will lead to more engagement, and so there is actually a real opportunity here for the sector.”Tom Lillywhite on Medium suggests: “Mobilising packs of micro-influencers is fast becoming the future of organic social media campaigning. We need to employ the credibility, passion and voice of our supporters. By harnessing supporters’ influence on social media we’ll effect real change.” He added: “People are 16 times more likely to click on the post of a friend than an organisation, and 135 dedicated supporters sharing a post on Facebook can reach as many people as the same post on a page with 1,000,000 fans.”Joseph Freeman, also writing on Medium, suggests applying skills and experience your charity might already have. “If you’ve got a separate online community, you should absolutely be looking to see how you can learn from that to start driving more conversations on Facebook posts.” He added: “The trend of people just tagging their friends in posts will become more important.”On live video he advised: “What’s coming up this year that you can do Live, and how can you feasibly add it into your content planning?” Facebook’s news feed to prioritise personal content over organisations’  207 total views,  1 views today On the JustGiving blog Matt Collins reminds us in 5 things you need to know about Facebook’s news feed changes: “Remember, you can still only get your message to 2-5% of people who like your page with any content. Facebook actually was and remains a great way to not reach people.”Beth Kanter shared her thoughts too. In Facebook Announces Overhaul of Newsfeed: What Does It Mean for Nonprofits? she summarised some reactions from others, and invited readers to share their plans on how to deal with the changes at their nonprofit.So many publishers think they have audiences, when what they really have is traffic.

Researching massive growth in giving. — Adam Mosseri (@mosseri) January 12, 2018 Tagged with: Digital Facebook Facebook’s announcement that it will show more content from individuals and less from organisations has made many charity fundraisers and marketers ponder how they should react.Until now charities have focused on sharing content and interacting with supporters and the public via their Facebook page. Following last week’s announcement this looks likely to be a less effective tactic on its own.What did Facebook announce?Adam Mosseri, Head of News Feed at Facebook, announced that “over the next few months, we’ll be making updates to ranking so people have more opportunities to interact with the people they care about.”He added: “we will also prioritise posts that spark conversations and meaningful interactions between people.” Note that the emphasis is on “people” rather than “organisations”, whether they be for-profit or charities.In a video explanation he summarised these changes: “person to person [communications] will be more valuable than person to page”.It’s more about valuing stories that facilitate meaningful interactions between people. As it turns out people interact more with stories from friends than from publishes, and so on average friends and groups see gains and publishers see less distribution.

  • Government marks anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights with arrests of dissidents

    first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further News June 2, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest of several Chinese dissidents as they prepared to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December.Political police in Beijing yesterday evening arrested prominent human rights activist Liu Xiaobo at his home as well as Zhang Zuhua, who was released a few hours later. The authorities also cut their telephone and Internet connections as police searched their homes and seized their computers and personal papers. Liu Xiaobo’s family said police were still holding him.Police on 4 December arrested three human rights activists: Chen Xi, Shen Youlian and Du Heping, all based in Guizhou province in southern China where rights activists are planning to stage a citizens’ forum on human rights on 10 December.Charter 8 which calls for democratic reform in China has been signed and published on the Internet by more than 300 Chinese intellectuals and human rights activists and was based on a similar charter produced by Czech dissidents in 1977.Police also questioned and threatened several other signatories of Charter 8, the organisation Chinese Human Rights Defenders (CHRD) said.”One might have hoped that China would have released dissidents, such as Hu Jia, on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but on the contrary they go for a wave of arrests and threats. It’s appalling”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”We call for their release and salute the courage of Chinese human rights defenders who have just launched Charter 8″, it added.Liu Xiaobo, winner of the 2004 Reporters Without Borders’ press freedom prize, who is a former philosophy professor at Beijing University, has one driving ambition: that the Chinese press should become a counter-weight to the supremacy of the Chinese Communist Party.

  • Feeding increases MyoD and PCNA expression in myogenic progenitor cells of Notothenia coriiceps

    first_imgOxygen consumption and ammonia excretion of the Antarctic fish Notothenia corikeps (18.4 cm L-F) increased respectively two and fourfold above fasting levels 24 h after feeding with a single meal of shrimps (5.5 to 7.5% of body mass), and remained elevated for 120 h. In fasted fish, c-met positive cells in the fast muscle represented 5.5% of the total number of myonuclei. The number of c-met positive cells staining for the proliferating cell nuclear antigen was increased by 60% both 24 and 96 h after the meal, while the number of cells expressing the myogenic transcription factor, MyoD, was increased by 20% after 24 h, and by 44% after 96 h. The total numbers of c-met positive cells and cells expressing myogenin were not significantly altered 96 h following feeding. The results are consistent with an activation of myogenic progenitor cells proliferation by feeding but suggest a relatively long cell cycle time.
