ASAI raps Paddy Power for “offensive, anti-English” ad

first_img ASAI raps Paddy Power for “offensive, anti-English” ad Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Legal & compliance The Advertising Standards Authority for Ireland (ASAI) has upheld complaints that argued a press and social media ad from Paddy Power was, “racist, offensive… and both highly insensitive and bigoted towards English people”. The Advertising Standards Authority for Ireland (ASAI) has upheld complaints that argued a press and social media advertisement from Paddy Power was, “racist, offensive… and both highly insensitive and bigoted towards English people.”The ad was part of an campaign run by the Flutter Entertainment-owned brand around the 2019 Six Nations rugby tournament. It appeared in the Irish Times and in the sports section of the Irish Star and the Irish Sun on 2 February 2019, and on Paddy Power’s Facebook and Twitter pages over the weekend of 1-3 February 2019.“Dear England,” the text of the advertisement read. “Sorry for the last two years of pain, suffering and humiliation. Another 798 and we’ll be even.”Paddy Power said the ad was intended to reference both “the poor performance of the English rugby team against the Irish rugby team over the previous two years,” as well as “publicly debated English misfortunes since the Brexit referendum,” in addition to the history of English rule in Ireland.The ASAI received a total of six complaints about the ad.“Complainants considered the advertisement to be racist, offensive, anti-English in sentiment, stirring up anti-English feelings, and both highly insensitive and bigoted towards English people,” the ASAI said. “Complaints included that the content was confusing, inciting to violence, inflammatory, harmful and hostile and bordering on incitement to hatred of all things English.”The watchdog added that complainants believed the timing of the advertisement politically, amid questions over the UK’s departure from the European Union and the potential of a hard border being reintroduced on the island of Ireland, made it particularly inappropriate.In reponse to the complaints, Paddy Power argued that the ads were, “edgy, humorous and engaging” were understood to be part of its brand, and that  was never their intention to cause offence.The operator added that it expressed regret for any offence caused to the complainants, but that it did not believe this offense was a rational response to the ad. The ad had been “generally well-received”, it added.Paddy Power said the context of the ad, referencing a sporting rivalry, made it clear that it was not subjecting people to ridicule or exploiting them on grounds of race. It added that, “light hearted humorous references of historical relations” were commonplace in international sporting rivalries.The Flutter-owned operator cited a previous Paddy Power advertisement that ran in the UK — featuring Scottish football fans singing about betting against England — as evidence that the complaint should not be upheld.The ad featuring Scottish football fans was the 7th-most complained about ad in the UK during 2016, but the UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) did not uphold any complaints against it.Paddy Power closed its response by arguing that the advertisement was “extremely popular” and did not create backlash online.The ASAI’s Complaints Committee, however, opted to uphold the complaints. While noting that the ad was intended as a satirical joke as part of a sporting rivalry, the committee determined that, “references to pain, suffering and humiliation with ‘we’ll be even’ was likely to cause offence”.“[The committee] considered that the content was neither prepared with a sense of responsibility to consumers and to society nor responsive to the diversity in Irish society,” the ASAI said.However, as the ad was part of a campaign that ran only during the Six Nations, no further action was required against the advertisement.Instead, the Complaints Committee issued a reminder to all advertisers to exercise care when referencing historical relations between countries.Paddy Power has come into conflict with authorities over its advertising on many occasions in the past.In May, the ASA upheld a complaint arguing an ad featuring Rhodri Giggs, the brother of former Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs, glamorised gambling and suggested it was a way of achieving a good standard of living.In July, the operator announced a shirt sponsorship deal with Huddersfield Town Football Club. A kit purporting to be Huddersfield’s first team strip for the 2019-20 season, featuring the Paddy Power brand as a sash across its front was then unveiled, and the team wore the kit for a friendly match against Rochdale AFC.This was later revealed to be a hoax to promote Paddy power’s Save Our Shirt campaign against betting sponsorship in football, with the club’s actual shirt for the season featuring no logo on the front of its shirt. However, the Football Association fined Huddersfield £50,000 for wearing kits that broke sponsorship regulations in the match against Rochdale.

Cineworld shares are down 70%. Would I buy now?

first_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. One of the most turbulent stocks in recent months has been Cineworld (LSE: CINE). In the space of three months, the Cineworld share price has reached lows of 22p, before climbing to over 100p. The share price currently stands at around 63p, which is still a 70% year-to-date fall. But with a number of severe issues in the cinema industry at the moment, are the shares too cheap to ignore or do they have further to fall?Cineworld shares are a riskThe entertainment industry has been one of the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic. For Cineworld, it has meant shutting cinemas around the world, along with having a monthly cash burn of around $115m. This has since been reduced to ‘only’ around $45m.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…While a reopening for cinemas is now imminent, the business will still be a significantly less profitable enterprise. How so? Capital expenditures will increase due to new safety guidelines. This includes hand sanitisers on entry, protective screens for staff members and extra cleaning. In addition, fewer customers will further reduce profits. The decline in customers will be especially serious in cinemas not only due to social distancing measures, but also a potential reluctance to watch films for several hours in the close proximity of others, and few new films being released. These factors certainly justify why Cineworld shares are so cheap at the moment and they make it a risky investment.What does the balance sheet look like?When investing in riskier stocks, a strong balance sheet can often help limit the damage. Unfortunately, Cineworld’s balance sheet is not as sturdy as I would like. Firstly, the company’s debt sits at $3.6bn. This is especially large as shareholders’ equity currently stands at only $3bn and it only has around $140m of cash. The result of such a large amount of debt, along with the impact of coronavirus, has resulted in it backing out of its $2.8bn Cineplex acquisition. While I believe that this was the correct move, it still opens it up to unwanted legal proceedings.On the other hand, a new $250m secured debt facility and a revolving credit facility increase of $110m have boosted Cineworld shares. It has also secured $45m through a coronavirus borrowing scheme in the UK and is looking to access $25m through the US government Cares Act. This should provide the company with further liquidity and ensure its survival, albeit in a damaged form. Would I buy Cineworld shares?All in all, the future does not look bright for Cineworld. This means that the recent positive news of reopening should be taken with a pinch of salt. In fact, Cineworld shares have been on the decline since 2017, and the pandemic has only quickened its decline. On the other hand, at its current price, there is no doubt that Cineworld shares are cheap. With a P/E ratio of 5.4 and a price-to-book value of 0.3, it could be a very tempting investment for risk-tolerant value investors. Personally, I would just prefer a company with a stronger balance sheet and a brighter future.   “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Cineworld shares are down 70%. Would I buy now?

Should I buy these cheap FTSE 100 shares before the ISA deadline?

Enter Your Email Address Should I buy these cheap FTSE 100 shares before the ISA deadline? Investor appetite for FTSE 100 shares remains pretty weak as uncertainty concerning the economic rebound lingers on. It’s probable that the picture — and consequently the outlook for corporate profits — will remain unclear for some months too as the pandemic worsens in key regions. This lack of buying interest continues to weigh on other UK share indexes too, of course.This cloudy panorama hasn’t discouraged me from continuing to buy British stocks though. In fact, my interest in UK shares is picking up as the 5 April deadline for ISA investors is fast approaching. Stocks and Shares ISA owners that fail to utilise the whole of their £20,000 annual investment allowance by then lose what they don’t use forever.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I’ve been on the hunt for cheap FTSE 100 shares to buy over the past week as a result. Should I add these blue chips to my ISA before 5 April?Talking ’bout TescoOn paper there’s a lot to like about Tesco. City analysts believe annual earnings will soar 55% this fiscal year, leaving it trading on a low forward price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.2. The supermarket packs a super 4.5% dividend yield too. But I’m not tempted by the Tesco share price today. It’s not only that Britain’s largest grocer face colossal and well-publicised competitive pressures. The equal pay battle between Asda and its store workers this week could eventually lead to the industry having to pay billions of pounds out to their employees. My fears on these fronts outweigh my optimism that Tesco’s excellent online proposition could deliver strong long-term profits growth.A better cheap FTSE 100 share?I’d rather increase my holdings in DS Smith, a cheap FTSE 100 share I already own in my ISA. Its 3.5% dividend yield might not be as impressive as Tesco’s. And its forward PEG ratio of 0.7, while very low, is also not as good as that of the supermarket. But I reckon this firm’s a much better bet for strong and sustained profits growth.The packaging giant is doubling-down on the hot growth areas of sustainability and e-commerce to drive future earnings. I also like the company’s aggressive approach to acquisitions, even if M&As can throw up hidden horrors like unexpected costs and disappointing synergy benefits. City analysts think earnings here will rise 22% this fiscal year.Powering up my ISAI also believe the National Grid share price is extremely attractive for ISA investors like me. I think a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 16 times represents pretty good value in these uncertain times. In my opinion companies with defensive operations like power supply are worth their weight in gold when the economy shakes.Furthermore, at current prices this cheap FTSE 100 stock boasts a mighty 6% dividend yield. Analysts think National Grid’s earnings will rise 13% in the current financial year. Though remember that companies like this can face significant (and unexpected) costs that can blow profits estimates off course.

Report urges Anglicans to defeat laws criminalizing same-sex behavior

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem [Episcopal News Service] The Anglican Communion’s “significant influence” in more than half of the countries that criminalize same-sex behavior ought to be put to use to repeal those laws, a new report says.Anglicans and Sexuality: A Way Forward?, research done in conjunction with the Institute of Public Affairs based at the London School of Economics and Political Science in London between January and May of this year, studied “the narrative arc of Christianity and Anglicanism’s troubled history around human sexuality.” Researchers also considered both the historic and current role of the Anglican Communion and its individual provinces and churches in decriminalization efforts.In January, as the study was beginning, a majority of the leaders of the communion’s 38 provinces – known as primates – said after a gathering in Canterbury, England, that they recognized that “the Christian church and within it the Anglican Communion have often acted in a way towards people on the basis of their sexual orientation that has caused deep hurt.” A majority of the primates at that same meeting also called for three years of “consequences”  for the Episcopal Church in response to its 2015 decision to authorize marriages between same-sex couples.Bishop Josiah Atkins Idowu-Fearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, said after the primates gathering that as much as Episcopalians are scandalized by the criminalization of homosexuality in some parts of the world, other Anglicans are scandalized by the Episcopal Church’s decision to allow same-sex couples to be married in the church. He said that decision “puts many of us at risk” in parts of the world “where the cultural sensibilities about human sexuality are so very different.”The researchers said that “the retention of penal sanctions against same-sex intimacy across the globe in the 21st century is the result of a toxic mix of political expediency, religious fervor and notions of nationalist purity masquerading as popular opinion.”The report cites research showing that such laws make somewhere between 94 to 145 million men and 13 to 40 million women “un-apprehended felons.” HIV/AIDS infection rates among men who have sex with men are significantly higher in jurisdictions which criminalize that activity than in those which don’t, according to research the report cites. Studies cited show that adverse mental health, family breakdown and poverty can also be attributed in part to criminalization.The researchers concluded that an independent commission of 11-15 people ought to be set up to look at all aspects of criminalization and seek ways for Anglicans to understand better the issues and how they can engage with governments and the public in countries which criminalize same-sex sexual conduct between consenting adults.Such a commission ought to investigate all aspects of criminalization from theological, legal, medical, historical, psychological and sociological perspectives, the report said. And it ought to make “clear and concise recommendations” on how the Anglican Communion can influence the repeal of laws that are intended to discriminate against or persecute LGBT people.The researchers suggest that the planned Lambeth Conference in 2020 would be an ideal opportunity for the commission’s findings to be discussed. To accomplish that, they said, the commission would have to be in place by next summer.The only Episcopalian listed in the report as a respondent and contributor is the Rev. Charles Robertson, canon to Presiding Bishop Michael Curry for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church.  Robertson is also among those suggested as possible commission members.

Australia edge Wales in another agonising defeat for home fans

first_imgSunday Nov 9, 2014 Australia edge Wales in another agonising defeat for home fans Australia edged Wales 33-28 in another tight encounter between the two sides, but it was the tenth successive time the Wallabies came up trumps. The home side started well and the first half was even, but Australia held their nerve late in the game.The result extended Wales’ losing streak against the big southern hemisphere sides to twenty one, even though this wasn’t the first time that the scores were close. It was the ninth successive time that the winning margin was in the single digits. In the first half both sides scored three converted tries, taking them into the break at 21-21.The second half was less eventful as Wales’ picked up a converted penalty try, while Australia’s Bernard Foley kicked three penalties and a well taken drop goal for a personal tally of 18 points.Despite Wales losing 25 of their last 26 matches against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, coach Warren Gatland remained upbeat.“We’ve scored four tries to three and I thought we went out there and played some really positive rugby,” he said. “To be honest I’m pretty positive about the performance.Wales play Fiji next, then New Zealand and South Africa. Australia travel to Paris to take on France, followed by Tests against England and Ireland in the following weeks.“There’s plenty to improve on, we’re not claiming that we had a cracker,” said new Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, who joined the squad just days before flying to the UK. “We’ve had just two weeks of getting our heads together and playing a new system, the guys getting into that, defensively as well, not just attack. What we’re hoping is that on this trip we can build that while at the same time playing good enough rugby to grab a win here and there.”What were your thoughts on the game and the result?

PivotMetallicsSculptformClick-on Battens in Ivanhoe ApartmentsText description provided by the architects. The Dearie Residence was designed in 1953 by Kevin Knight and survived six decades as an unaltered example of classic beachside post-war modernism. The new owners purchased the property from the Dearie family in 2014 and were passionate about preserving the architectural integrity of the original house, as well as its surrounding mature trees.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonThe brief was to retain as many of the character-defining elements as possible, whilst incorporating an extension suitable for the contemporary needs of a modern family of two adults and three growing children.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonKey to the success of this project was a shared commitment to celebrating the core character-defining elements of an original modernist era home. Existing black & white-painted facades expressed Oregon roof beams, and internal timber wall linings were restored or repurposed, as was the entire original hardwood floor.Save this picture!Plan – NewThe new floor plate embraces the original plan, accentuating its central axis by framing an old Stringy Bark tree at one end and a new swimming pool at the other. The rear of the old building, dilapidated by exposure to six decades of harsh southerly winds, has been replaced by two rugged timber-clad boxes inconspicuously stitched to the building’s rear. A verdant central courtyard interconnects the main zones of the house, acting as a central ‘lung’ and source of daylight within the building’s core. Save this picture!© Adam GibsonThe additions continue to explore universal modernist themes as relevant now as they were mid-last century. Truth to materials, simplicity, and clarity of form, visual expression of structure, and above all, the delight of natural daylight, shadow play, and reflection. Internal spaces connect to the natural landscape at every opportunity. The new works are like a jazz improvisation on the original, architecture of simplicity and nourishment, a tranquil refuge, an atmosphere that is as timeless as it is highly temporal. All habitable rooms benefit from daylight from at least two sources and a strong visual connection to the garden. This enhances the sense of time passing, contributes to a healthy living environment, and enriches the quality of experience within the home.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonThe well-orientated building captures direct sunlight throughout the entire day. All spaces along the southern side of the building have windows that open onto the vibrant central courtyard allowing control of natural cross-ventilation. This negates the requirement for mechanical air conditioning and cleanses internal air quality.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonThis project provides an important contribution to the discussion about the future protection of mid-century modernist homes within Beaumaris. Like many similar modernist residences of the era, this house does not benefit from any statutory heritage protection. The Dearie Residence benefited from custodians who were determined only to pass it on to a party committed to its retention, and the new owners were passionately willing to accept that challenge. Otherwise, this modest yet important relic could quite easily have been lost to demolition, as has been the sad fate of many similar local buildings in the recent past.Save this picture!© Adam GibsonProject gallerySee allShow lessWangzhou and OCAT Xi’an Pavilion / IAPA PTY.
