Australian advisory creates global RG and AML accreditation

first_img Australian advisory creates global RG and AML accreditation The commission also expressed concerns that poker machines would be exploited as a money laundering option for criminals. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 11th February 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility CSR Problem gambling Responsible gambling “The accreditation is a way for industry leaders to demonstrate they are meeting the highest standards of accountability and exceeding best practice in protecting their customers and their staff in cultivating a workplace culture of compliance and social responsibility.” As well as safeguarding corporate reputation and minimising the risks of gambling harm and financial crime, achieving accreditation would demonstrate an organisation’s commitment to responsible gambling culture, said Paul Newson, regulatory and gambling specialist at Senet. Newson said the certification would only be awarded to operators who could demonstrate the highest level of vigilance. The announcement follows a warning put out this month by the New South Wales Crime Commission, that the Australian economy could become a greater target for financial crime following its successful management of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. To increase young people’s awareness of the risks of gambling, the Office said it was developing resources for teachers and partnering with sporting teams via the Reclaim the Game initiative, to help educate people around sports betting promotion. “Our team has developed this accreditation based on our deep knowledge of the complexities and challenges in 2021 facing gambling operators committed to responsible gambling outcomes and staying a step ahead of criminal activity,” he added.center_img Australian gambling law, regulatory, and compliance advisory Senet has released a global compliance accreditation on gambling-related harm and money laundering for gaming operators. The government of New South Wales launched a consultation on a series of proposed changes to regulations on gaming machines in September last year, including that clubs and hotels would be required to actively identify and assist players displaying problem gambling behaviour, rather than taking action only following a specific request for help. Known as Senet Assure and Senet Assure Premium, the accreditations aim to protect gaming organisations and venues, their customers and communities, the advisory said.

Please enter your comment! Three-quarters (78%) of Americans are afraid to ride in a self-driving vehicle.Baby Boomers (85%) are more likely to be afraid than Millennials (73%) and Generation X (75%) drivers.Women (85%) are more likely to be afraid than men (69%). LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter To educate consumers on the effectiveness of emerging vehicle technologies, AAA is committed to the on-going, unbiased testing of automated vehicle technologies. Previous testing of automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, self-parking technology and lane keeping systems has shown both great promise and great variation. It is clear motorists have different values and beliefs regarding fully autonomous vehicles, however, new technology will continue to shape the future of driving. AAA will continue to educate the motoring public on the associated benefits and limitations involved with these new features.The Auto Club Group (ACG) is the second largest AAA club in North America.  ACG and its affiliates provide membership, travel, insurance and financial services offerings to over 9 million members across eleven states and two U.S. territories including Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands; most of Illinois and Minnesota; and a portion of Indiana. ACG belongs to the national AAA federation with more than 57 million members in the United States and Canada and whose mission includes protecting and advancing freedom of mobility and improving traffic safety. The Anatomy of Fear center_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here New AAA survey reveals that Americans still leery of a driverless future  New vehicle technology has become a major topic among American motorists.  A new AAA survey reveals that U.S. drivers seek autonomous technologies in their next vehicle, but remain apprehensive about a fully self-driving car. Although autonomous vehicles are considered to be safer, more efficient, and more convenient than their human counterparts, three out of four motorists are afraid to ride in self-driving cars. Technology will continue to be a driving force in the future of transportation; AAA urges automakers to gradually introduce these technologies to ensure American motorists are informed, prepared, and comfortable with this shift in mobility. “Consumers should always educate themselves concerning new car technology to fully understand the pros and cons,” said Montrae Waiters, spokeswoman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The key to consumer acceptance will be education. Autonomous vehicle safety features could potentially save lives.”In 2016, AAA conducted a comprehensive survey to identify motorists fears towards self-driving vehicles, known as Phase I. This survey revealed most drivers trust their driving skills more than the technology (84 percent), followed by feeling the technology is too new and unproven (60 percent), followed by not wanting to pay extra for it (57 percent) and then finding it annoying (45 percent). Phase II of this research provides an overview of the past year, and offers new insights into whether motorists are ready to give up control.Key Findings:Half (54%) of U.S. drivers feel less safe at the prospect of sharing the road with a self-driving vehicle, while one-third (34%) feel it wouldn’t make a difference and only 10 percent say they would feel safer.Women (58%) are more likely to feel less safe than men (49%).Baby Boomers (60%) are more likely to feel less safe than Generation X (56%) or Millennials (41%) You have entered an incorrect email address!

Shutter House / State of Kin + Mobilia

The intention for the project was to create an expressive, distinctive and dynamic home. Shutter House is an imaginative and unique new home situated in Wembley, Western Australia overlooking picturesque Lake Monger (traditionally referred to as ‘Keiermulu’ by the indigenous Noongar people). A concrete block structure is enveloped by a delicately layered secondary timber batten ‘skin’. An operable façade opens and closes, creating a sense of enclosure and intimacy whilst still allowing unobstructed views to the adjacent lake at the leisure of residents, the vertical profiles cause a dynamic play of light and shadow within.Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!© Jack LovelThe home’s lakeside context directly informed the design. Maintenance of views and access to the corresponding Northern aspect was paramount throughout the project’s conception. The facilitation of the operable timber screen allowed for views and dappled light to infiltrate the house whilst allowing the occupant control of privacy and asserting stewardship of interaction with the streetscape.Save this picture!© Sophie Pearce, Fragments PhotoSave this picture!© Sophie Pearce, Fragments PhotoThe project was conceived as a showcase for not only local design and building talent but also local materials and suppliers. Endemic stringybark timber was utilized in the façade screens, and local suppliers were integral in the procurement of all fixtures and fittings. Aside from connectivity with the immediate context, the design was heavily influenced by Japanese architecture, with an emphasis on the honesty of materials, craftsmanship, and adaptability of space. Shutter House is representative of the diverse, inclusive, and ever-changing Australian society and the successful amalgamation of dialogue from a varied pool of sources and imbued with a sense of place that is tangible throughout the home.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe decision to work with the existing topography of the site to create a layered floorplan contributed to a reduction in significant earthworks which was beneficial in terms of responsible land use. Sustainability consideration to the build included the passive cooling and shading provided by the openable shutter on the front façade. Through the animated and dynamic movement in the façade, the North facing site is able to harness and control the ingress of light and shade through the building to suit the time of day/year/season. Local materials and suppliers were used heavily and, in some areas, structural materials are exposed and celebrated reducing carbon footprint and supporting local industry.Save this picture!© Sophie Pearce, Fragments PhotoSave this picture!© Jack Lovel This home presents a distinctive expression in its’ urban context – an idiosyncratic interpretation of contemporary housing that channels ‘traditional’ Western Australian home design, Japanese influence, and face that interacts with passersby in a way that has enlivened and inspired the local community. Its’ tiered layout, working with the challenging topography is a resourceful approach to reducing earthworks but also informing an interesting and nimble flow of movement. An elegant amalgamation of textures, colour and material is a daring undertaking, the outcome is an audacious home unlike any in this locality.Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!© Jack Lovel This project presented a unique opportunity to be quite animated with our design, both architecturally and with the interiors. We were still an emerging practice when we started the design for this project, and we had found in the past clients would hesitate to explore the possibility of bold colour when it came to their homes. We wanted to demonstrate that colour could in fact be sophisticated and mature and that when juxtaposed against natural materials and a nuanced external palette could be highly successful. Shutter House is designed at its core to be expressive; it provokes you to look closer and longer at things – it does not hide. We took pride in creating interesting spaces with the use of materials and their applications. The home floods with light and when the light catches these materials it makes for an interesting expression. Creating a degree of domesticity and familiarity, Shutter House explores the potential of its robust material palette and the essential qualities of texture, space, and light.Save this picture!© Sophie Pearce, Fragments Photo Shutter House is a celebration of vibrant colour, rich textures, light, and shadow. The home is an exploration of tactility, a balance between powerful and gentle sensations, and an experiential space throughout. Strong, rectilinear forms and graphic geometric lines are softened and offset by strategically placed circles and curves. There is a balanced tension in this contrast that is simultaneously stunning, exciting but also feels calm and balanced.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessHaina Baichuan Headquarters / Dongxiying Studio CCDISelected ProjectsWe Are Knitters Store / Mazumdar BravoSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeMobiliaOfficeFollowState of KinOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on April 06, 2021Cite: “Shutter House / State of Kin + Mobilia” 05 Apr 2021.

The house is immersed in the naturally forested site with paramount importance given to outdoor living and creating connections with the site’s natural beauty.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographySave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographyThe house utilizes the siting of a prior home, minimizing the impact on the forested site and nearby wetlands.No trees were removed to create a view, maintaining root systems for erosion control. The integrity of the shoreline was preserved, minimizing the visual impact of the house on the lake. Trees removed for purposes of construction were limited to a minimum. Tree shade, along with large roof overhangs and passive (cross) ventilation, enables summertime cooling. The house intentionally integrates and weaves the native understory landscape materials into the architectural design.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographySave this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographySite drainage is incorporated as a design feature. An upland drainage swale runs between the main house and guest house and under a connecting bridge. The swale incorporates erratic boulders and stones as well as ferns and mosses ultimately terminating in a natural wetland.  Roof drainage via scuppers evacuates into a “wet” landscape feature of native plants and boulders at the entry of the house, highlighting the native condition as well as rain events (climate) as worthy of contemplation and enjoyment. All landscaping is designed without irrigation.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographyThe materials of the house are natural and modern. The exterior palette of dark stained cedar siding and glass is designed to visually camouflage and recess the building into the forest. Muted natural materials indoors (Western Red Cedar, American Black Walnut, Granite) are used to create a warm and calm environment that highlights the natural landscape beyond via glazed or screened openings.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographyThe program is broken into multiple volumes, not unlike old family compounds found around the lake.  The massing and rooflines follow the natural topography of the crescent-shaped slope and optimize views and access to the landscape. Expansive roofs and decks create held outdoor spaces, link the different buildings together, and echo the topography’s natural undulations.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographyWith movement through the building, an episodic disclosure of space and views unfold; the site is revealed through a framework of linked vantage points and framing devices. This is most evident at the entry breezeway and covered bridge, where geometries of adjacent buildings are connected and where distinctions are blurred between interior and exterior, architecture and landscape. Accessible measures ensure enjoyment for all occupants.  (entry ramp, walk-in-tub, single-level access between house and guest house). Craft, detailing and construction create a quiet architecture that prioritizes a subjective experiential connection to the natural environment.Save this picture!© Chuck Choi Architectural PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessStoney Rise Cellar Door / Cumulus StudioSelected ProjectsIndah House / Siqueira + Azul ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeMurdough Design ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookCenter HarborUnited StatesPublished on April 26, 2021Cite: “Shoreland Overlook Residence / Murdough Design Architects” 26 Apr 2021.

This will probably make this model too expensive for charities to continue to use.Mail packs can be zero-rated for VAT but Customs spotted that suppliers were applying this zero rating to pens added to packs, so stepped in to stop this.

Youth magazine suspended

first_img April 7, 2021 Find out more to go further News Organisation VietnamAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) today condemned a three-month ban on Sinh Vien Vietnam, a weekly youth magazine whose cover recently featured naked human statuettes and last year had a photo-montage of banknotes with the late President Ho Chi Minh’s head on them floating in a toilet bowl.Calling on culture and information minister Pham Quang Nghi to reverse at once his 15 July suspension of Sinh Vien Vietnam, it said the ban showed how hard it was for the media to deal openly with certain topics in either words or pictures. It also urged the French embassy in Vietnam to lobby the government on behalf of the magazine, which it helps.The culture ministry said the magazine had been suspended under articles 6 and 10 of the press law for printing “offensive” illustrations. Journalists on the magazine, which is published by the Ho Chi Minh Young Communist Association (linked to the ruling Communist Party), were ordered to make public self-criticism. The ban can be extended for a further period by the Party’s culture and ideology commission. The 7 July issue cover showed a photo of two statuettes of a naked man and woman and the 20 May issue last year featured the Ho Chi Minh banknotes. The French news agency Agence France-Presse quoted a government official as saying the magazine had “used sensationalist means to get publicity.” News News News VietnamAsia – Pacific Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnamcenter_img April 27, 2021 Find out more Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts RSF_en April 22, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Vietnam RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang July 17, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Youth magazine suspendedlast_img read more

News Organisation “We must impose democratic obligations on the leading digital players”center_img Help by sharing this information News The law amended the Criminal Code, the National Defence Act, the Official Secrets Act and the law about individual freedoms. Changes to the Criminal Code extended electronic surveillance of criminal organisations to cover terrorist groups and police will no longer have to show that such monitoring is a last resort. The decision remains one for a Supreme Court judge to make but the maximum authorised period of it was increased from 60 days to a year.A change in the National Defence Act allows the defence minister to authorise the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) to intercept private communications (including electronic ones) linked to activity defined by the defence minister (chapter 273.65.1). The confidentiality of e-mail communication, and with it the protection of journalistic sources, has clearly been destroyed. The CSE’s rules, however, say it cannot monitor Canadians or people living in Canada.The government began consultations on 25 August 2002 about adapting to new technology various laws allowing legal access by prosecutors to private documents in the interest of the security and welfare of Canadians. It proposed that all ISPs be obliged to ensure they had the technical means to provide legal access to their data by national security officials. In effect, they would have to retain and provide data about their customers.The government noted that the Criminal Code banned deliberate interception of private communications. But, in an attempt to justify possible interception of e-mail messages, it argued that when a message was written down, it was no longer really private, since it could easily fall into the hands of someone else.These views were fiercely attacked by Privacy Commissioner George Radwanski in a report in late January 2003. He accused the government of using the 11 September attacks as an excuse to collect and use more and more data about private individuals.
