iGB Influential Women: look beyond the poster women

first_img Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling Topics: Casino & games People Sports betting Bingo Poker Bingo 2nd August 2019 | By Joanne Christie Influence isn’t just about being well-known, says All-In Diversity Project’s Christina Thakor-Rankin. It’s also about taking a long-term view of the industry and encouraging other women in their careers Regions: Africa Asia Europe LATAM US Email Address iGB Influential Women: look beyond the poster women Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Influence isn’t just about being well-known, says All-In Diversity Project’s Christina Thakor-Rankin. It’s also about taking a long-term view of the industry and encouraging other women in their careers.Whenever we talk about women in the gambling sector we always seem to come up with the same names. On one level this is a hugely positive thing. Not only have these incredible, talented individuals risen to the top of their respective games, but several years later they are still there.Along the way some have raised families, some have undertaken additional projects and initiatives, and some have retrained and embarked on new career paths, but all have helped challenge long-held traditional views and attitudes about women in the gambling industry, and in doing so helped shatter a few myths and a few glass ceilings.The important thing is their longevity. Staying power is vital to convincing those responsible for hiring and investing in people that taking a punt on female talent is a smart long-term move.But investing in talent presumes that we are able to attract and hire it in the first place. And then retain it. And this is where we start to hit our first hurdle. While we have a stellar line-up of women who have made it – including the world’s highest paid CEO  – there is just too big a gap between those who have made it and those who are just starting out.Partly, this is due to ‘generational’ issues – the challenges faced by someone starting out 20, 10 or even five years ago are markedly different to those faced by someone starting out now.This is not just due to changes in social, political and economic attitudes, but also advances in technology and the evolution of the betting and gambling industry, which has resulted in some roles and functions becoming obsolete and the emergence of new specialisms and disciplines.How do the challenges faced by a shy twenty something entry level developer or social media intern relate to the experiences of a confident, established professional several decades older than them? They don’t, not really.We have some truly incredible women in the industry who continue to be an inspiration for female achievement and empowerment, but there is a world of difference between being well-known and being influential.Recognising role models This is not so much about inspirational as aspirational role models. Someone who represents the next achievable rung of the career ladder and can reach a hand down. Someone who can sit with newer recruits and coach them and guide them through the day-to-day challenges faced in their chosen discipline.Someone who can say, ‘this is how I dealt with it’, or ‘this is why I chose to do this’ or ‘this is what you need to do if you want my job in a couple of years’. Someone who on a bad day can look them in the eye and say, ‘it’s not always like this’ and ‘it does get better’. Someone who is genuinely empathetic and not just sympathetic.Finally, there is that group who we never hear about – the unsung heroines without whom the leaky pipeline would be a damn sight leakier. They could be the women on their way to the top; just as likely they are the women in the middle or at the lower levels.They are the ones who support, encourage, give pep talks and provide shoulders to cry on. The ones who tell others to keep their chins up, to not let the ‘so and sos’ get them down, and who wrestle the towel away so they can’t throw it in.This year let’s celebrate all of our influencers – not just the poster women, but also the hand-holders.. To nominate yours go to the second iGaming Business Most Influential Women survey.Christina Thakor-Rankin is co-founder of the All-In Diversity project and principal consultant at 1710 Gaming, working with start-up, evolving and established operators internationally, regulators and industry groups.last_img read more

Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE. If you’re 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away. Edward Sheldon owns shares in Diageo and has a position in Fundsmith Equity. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Diageo. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. In the current low-interest-rate environment, in which savings rates are absolutely abysmal, everyone is looking for new ways to earn a better return on their money. NS&I Income Bonds are one savings product that is getting a lot of attention right now.Are NS&I Income Bonds a good investment?They currently pay an interest rate of 1.16% AER. Interest is calculated daily and added to your account on the 5th of each month or the next working day if the 5th falls on a weekend or bank holiday.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…Now, in the current environment, 1.16% is actually a pretty good return on a ‘relative’ basis. There aren’t many other savings accounts paying that level of interest at the moment.But let’s get serious for a minute. For long-term savings, 1.16% is a terrible interest rate. Invest £10,000 at that rate and you’re looking at interest of less than £120 per year.Realistically, if you’re earning 1.16% on your long-term savings, you’re likely to go backward financially in the long run once you factor-in inflation.Earn that kind of interest rate on your savings for 10 years, and you’ll most likely find that when you come to spend your money, it buys you a whole lot less than you expect. That’s because prices of goods and services will have soared while your savings will have stagnated.So, for long-term savings, I don’t think NS&I Income Bonds are a great option. You see, 1.16% per year is simply not high enough to generate real wealth.Build your wealth with a Stocks and Shares ISAIf you’re serious about building your wealth, I’d forget about NS&I Income Bonds, and instead, park your long-term savings in a Stocks and Shares ISA.A Stocks and Shares ISA won’t generate a high return on your savings by itself. But the investment options within this ISA certainly have the potential to do so.You see, within the Stocks and Shares ISA, you have the option to invest your money in a wide range of fantastic wealth-building investments including funds, investment trusts, ETFs, and stocks. These kinds of investments are likely to create far more wealth for you over the long term than NS&I Income Bonds.The choice you have within a Stocks and Shares ISA really is incredible.For example, you can put your money into a global growth fund such as the highly-popular Fundsmith Equity fund. This particular fund has turned £10,000 into around £50,000 in less than a decade.Or you can put your money into an investment trust that pays out regular income such as Murray Income Trust. This trust, which has increased its dividend every year for over 20 years, currently sports a dividend yield of about 4.4%Alternatively, you can put together your own shares portfolio and invest in the companies you know and love. Whether you want to invest in a well-established FTSE 100 company like Diageo (which owns a wide range of spirit brands including Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff and Tanqueray) or a smaller, up-and-coming company such as Fevertree Drinks, it’s possible through a Stocks and Shares ISA.And the best bit? All your gains will be completely tax-free. For long-term savings, I see the Stocks and Shares ISA as a no-brainer. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50center_img Enter Your Email Address Forget 1.16% from NS&I Income Bonds.

UK shares to buy: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d acquire

first_img Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Experian. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Don’t miss our special stock presentation.It contains details of a UK-listed company our Motley Fool UK analysts are extremely enthusiastic about.They think it’s offering an incredible opportunity to grow your wealth over the long term – at its current price – regardless of what happens in the wider market.That’s why they’re referring to it as the FTSE’s ‘double agent’.Because they believe it’s working both with the market… And against it.To find out why we think you should add it to your portfolio today… Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. UK shares to buy: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’d acquire There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! As I’ve been looking for UK shares to buy, two FTSE 100 stocks have attracted my attention. Both have what I would call a substantial competitive advantage. They’re also well run and are making the most of their advantages. This is why I believe these are a couple of the best UK shares to buy now in the blue-chip space.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…FTSE 100 tech stockThe first company on my list is data provider Experian (LSE: EXPN). This company’s competitive advantage is its data trove. The organisation has been collecting financial information about consumers for decades. As a result, it’s highly respected and regarded in the industry.As such, consumers and companies alike trust the firm. It would be almost impossible for another startup to establish this kind of reputation without a couple of decades of experience and data gathering. Although the company has been impacted by the pandemic and there’s been a drop-off in consumers seeking credit, earnings are now starting to recover. According to its full-year results for the fiscal 2021 period, organic revenue grew 7% overall last year. Management expects growth of 7-9% in the current financial year, following organic revenue growth of as much as 20% in the first quarter. These figures support my conclusion that this is one of the best UK shares to buy right now. As it continues to grow, I’d add the stock to my portfolio. Unfortunately, there’s one significant risk hanging over the business, and that’s the possibility of a data breach. This could impact the group’s reputation for safety and security, which may dent organic growth and result in a hefty financial penalty. UK shares to buyThe other FTSE 100 company I’d buy is Spirax-Sarco Engineering (LSE: SPX). Most people haven’t heard of this business, and there’s no reason why they should. It’s a manufacturer of steam management systems as well as other fluid control and temperature management systems.This is hardly the most exciting business, but its products fill a critical role for companies that use them. For example, for some manufacturers, managing the temperature of facilities is vital. Buyers of industrial and commercial steam systems also need to be sure the system isn’t going to fail, which could have catastrophic consequences. This is the FTSE 100 firm’s competitive advantage. It’s a known and trusted engineer. As a result, customers are unlikely to go with a lesser-known startup and sacrifice safety for cost. As the world economy rebuilds after the pandemic, I think the demand for the company’s products should increase. That’s why I reckon this is one of the best UK shares to buy today and I’d acquire it for my portfolio.The main risks the enterprise may face include the possibility of an economic slowdown and higher cost. Both of these risks and challenges could impact profit margins, which would lead to reduced profitability and may dent investor sentiment towards the stock.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!center_img Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Autumn Internationals Week Four: Five things we learnt

first_img Fiji show what could beWhilst Ireland dominated the USA and the World Rugby awards, it would be remiss not to mention Fiji’s victory over France. It was the result of the weekend and probably the Test result of the year.The difference in financing and preparation time between the two teams couldn’t be starker. Superficially, both teams are filled with well-paid household names playing for big clubs and big wages. But that isn’t how Test rugby works. Test rugby is about preparation time. If it wasn’t then the Barbarians would be the best international team in the world and would stroll through every team in the top ten.Related: Fiji unearth two future starsWhilst most of the Tier One nations have weeks to prepare, Fiji and the other Pacific Island nations have days. As neutral as this column tries to be, it was hugely satisfying the see Fijian’s giving their French counterparts a cheeky slap around the face. Well played Fiji.Bewildered: Michael Cheika looks unimpressed with what’s happening on the Twickenham turfEngland go big on the WallabiesEngland went big against the Wallabies in every regard.Not only was the winning margin massive for a Tier One fixture, but the way in which England produced it was equally gargantuan. It may seem overly simplistic to say that England overpowered the Wallabies, but that’s what happened. You only needed to see the first scrum of the game to understand the rest of the eighty minutes.The Wallaby scrum was demolished in the opening passages of play with their front row creating a new yoga move – the ‘downward dog’ became the ‘mangled wallaby’. But it didn’t stop there. Ben Te’o’s inclusion in the first Test raised a few eyebrows, but in the fourth test, he raised some serious questions about the Wallaby midfield with Bernard Foley and Samu Kerevi missing three tackles each. In fact Kerevi missed as many as he made.Related: How England’s World Cup selection is shaping upWith David Pocock absent, Sam Underhill and his associates feasted on the floor like it was a Toby Carvery and the increasingly impressive Mark Wilson delivered another immaculate performance at No 8.Running free: Joe Cokanasiga tears off another big run against the WallabiesThe ‘Big’ problems for Australia weren’t reduced to the forwards or central channels either. Joe Cokanasiga once again delivered a freakshow performance with three clean breaks and seven defenders beaten, which is hardly surprising given that he’s so big (whatever he’s wearing looks like compression gear). Eddie Jones’ position is quite rightly stabilising, Cheika’s is not. The ice underneath him is becoming so thin you can see the predators peering through.Gatland is finishing off his CV perfectlyAt some stage in the next few years, a TV channel will create an episode of ‘I love the Noughties’ – that’s a reference to times and dates, not Kurtley Beale and Adam Ashley-Cooper. It will feature people fondly remembering The Inbetweeners, Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks. Unless you’re Welsh of course.The Welsh edit would also reference that despite Warren Gatland having revolutionised Welsh Test rugby, his record over the southern hemisphere squads hasn’t been good enough. As of 2018 that is no longer the case. Band of brothers: Niki Goneva celebrates with his Fijian team-mates in Paris TAGS: Fiji Full of passion: Alun Wyn Jones of Wales celebrates victory against the SpringboksWales’ victory over the Boks was a gamechanger for Gatland and the squad. Yes, Wales have beaten South Africa before, but overall, they haven’t been particularly good squads. The current Bok squad is different and whilst it may not be as vintage as 2007 or 2009, it has been good enough to beat the All Blacks in New Zealand in 2018.It was a fantastic team performance from Wales. And ‘team’ is the pivotal word. Wales’ previous victories against the southern hemisphere squads have tended to involved Hollywood/miracle moments where Shane Williams had to beat 15 players in one phase or a centre has needed to run 80m to finish an intercept. This performance was different.It was a collective effort of sustained pressure. Alun Wyn Jones was immaculate as ever and Aaron Wainwright, Ellis Jenkins and Justin Tipuric look like they’ve been playing together for decades. But let’s not ignore the impact of Dan Biggar. Some regard Biggar as Wales’ third option at ten, which is premature. His composure and goal-kicking against the Boks was rock-solid. Wales are in a good position and Gatland deserves the praise.Scotland defuse the bombsSometimes it is easy to become accustomed to homogenised rugby. Where attacking and defensive systems have become so clinical and precise that it feels like you’ve seen it all before.Bit of Argy-bargy: Fraser Brow Matias Moroni square up at MurrayfieldScotland v Argentina was not like this. It was like stepping back into the 1980s and showed that the best coaches still have the ability to play the conditions even if the computer says “No”. Due to the weather, the entire game was a throwback to when full-backs earned their wages from catching high balls, not cross-kicks.It would be unfair to label the entire game as a kick-fest. Stuart Hogg’s scanning of the line and blindside attack, which led to Sean Maitland’s first try, was attacking rugby at its best. But this was a defensive game from the outset and deliberately so. A tactic which will serve both well come the Rugby World Cup.Knock-out games are rarely ten try thrillers; they’re often a pick and mix of every aspect of the game. One being goal-kicking. An aspect where Scotland did enough and the Pumas did not. Sanchez won’t be able to kick his goals at 43% come next September. And that’s a fact.Another controversial hit: Farrell whacked Izack RoddaOwen Farrell does it againOne can only assume that Owen Farrell has rugby’s equivalent of diplomatic immunity.What Farrell must do to get penalised for a shoulder-barge is baffling. I’m looking forward to seeing his first red card, because it will probably mean that he’s managed to sneak a weapon onto the field.Related: Aussies cry foul at TwickenhamEven the most hardcore of England fans will concede that a no arms tackle, on the try-line, is a penalty and therefore a penalty try.In the week that World Rugby publicly called for more cards to change players’ behaviour, the decision is even more unusual. Twitter is usually awash with comments about the All Blacks existing in a refereeing-immune bubble, but Farrell seems to be even a level above that. Confusing.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Across the street on the north side, there is an enormous factory behind a two story wood construction apartment. On the south side there is a three-story housing complex and  on the west side there is an old abandoned house.

EDITORIAL: Monte Rushmore defensa del genocidio – una indignación monumental

first_imgJusto cuando pensábamos que las cosas no podían empeorar.El discurso del 4 de julio, pronunciado al pie del Monte Rushmore por el fanático en jefe, nos recuerda que, bajo el sistema capitalista, las cosas siempre pueden empeorar. Especialmente cuando el ocupante de la Casa Blanca parece tener cero límites cuando se trata de comentarios, posiciones y acciones extravagante ofensivas y médicamente peligrosas.Pueblos indígenas manifiestan en contra de Trump, 3 de julio, cerca de Monte Rushmore.Como jefe civil en el sector privado, Trump probablemente sería aún más sincero. Uno puede imaginarlo con los carteles, vistos desde su elección, que dicen: “Soy racista y estoy orgulloso de ello”. No es difícil imaginarlo llevando una bandera confederada, luciendo una esvástica o proclamando abiertamente el orgullo fascista una vez que deja el cargo público (¡cuanto antes, mejor!).Como presidente de los Estados Unidos, tiene que ocultar su mensaje en retórica que defiende la “democracia”.Los luchadores por la libertad que se rebelan en las calles están derribando, y empujando al estado a derribar, monumentos a los propietarios de personas esclavizadas y a los asesinos de pueblos indígenas. Para castigarlos por sus acciones heroicas, Trump se jactó de que impondría una pena de prisión de 10 años.Para Trump y sus animadores secuaces, la justa rebelión en las calles representa “la definición misma del totalitarismo”. El presidente llegó incluso a llamarlo “un nuevo fascismo de extrema izquierda que exige lealtad absoluta”. Esto convierte la realidad en su cabeza.Los matones y policías de la supremacía blanca han herido a muchos manifestantes, algunos fatalmente. Sin embargo, son activistas antirracistas arrestados desde el linchamiento de George Floyd quienes han sido acusados de delitos graves, y algunos enfrentan décadas o incluso cadena perpetua.¿Qué es el monte Rushmore?Dakota del Sur fue anexionada por los Estados Unidos en 1803 como parte de la Compra de Luisiana. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos luego permitió asentamientos allí, rompiendo los tratados anteriores hechos con la Nación Indígena Lakota. El teniente coronel estadounidense George Custer invadió las Black Hills en 1874, violando el Tratado de Fort Laramie de 1868 que había dejado a las Black Hills sin terminar con los Lakota, para quienes las colinas son sagradas.Después de que Custer descubriera el oro, los mineros blancos que buscaban fortuna invadieron las Colinas. En 1889, Dakota del Norte y Dakota del Sur se convirtieron en los estados 39 y 40. Como todos los 50 estados, desde Alaska y Hawai hasta Nueva Inglaterra, Dakota del Sur es tierra robada a la población indígena.Tȟuŋkášila Šákpe (“Los seis abuelos”) o Igmútȟaŋka Pahá (“Montaña Cougar”) para los Lakota, la montaña fue renombrada después de Charles Rushmore, un rico hombre de negocios que frecuentaba el área en viajes de caza y prospección en la década de 1890. La profanación masiva comenzó en 1927 con la eliminación de grandes cantidades de granito para crear los bustos familiares de los cuatro presidentes estadounidenses. Este trabajo tomó 17 años y costó casi $1 millón, una considerable suma de dólares de impuestos en 1944.El escultor, Gutzon Borglum, era miembro del KKK, quien anteriormente ayudó a construir el enorme monumento confederado en Stone Mountain, Lincoln, hijo de Borglum, Lincoln, quien completó Rushmore después de la muerte de su padre, imaginó más profanación al poner en piedra la Declaración de Independencia, la Constitución, la compra de Luisiana y el Tratado del Canal de Panamá.¿De quién son las cabezas que profanan las Black Hills?Los presidentes representados, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln y Theodore Roosevelt, representan varias etapas en el desarrollo del imperio imperialista de Estados Unidos. Los dos llamados “padres fundadores” eran ricos miembros de la esclavocracia con vastas extensiones de tierra. Lincoln, retratado como el líder benevolente que terminó con la esclavitud por sí solo, esencialmente liberó a los estados esclavistas para la expansión capitalista.Roosevelt, según la versión de la historia de Trump, “llevó a los famosos Rough Riders a derrotar al enemigo en San Juan Hill”. Esta etapa imperialista del desarrollo capitalista coincide con la toma estadounidense de las colonias controladas por españoles en 1898; Puerto Rico sigue siendo una colonia empobrecida de los EE. UU. Pero San Juan Hill está en territorio liberado, la Cuba socialista, algo que mil Monte Rushmores nunca pueden borrar.La nostalgia de Trump por los monumentos que caen recuerda al gobernador de Alabama, George Wallace, que declaró en 1963: “Segregación ahora, segregación mañana y segregación para siempre”.No sabemos cuánto tiempo la gigantesca y lucrativa trampa turística continuará intacta, con suerte no mucho más. Los valientes defensores de los tratados indígenas pudieron sostener la manifestación de odio fascista de Trump durante varias horas.Esperamos con ansias el día en que todos y cada uno de los monumentos a la esclavocracia y el genocidio sean derribados y destruidos. Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero se compromete a erradicar, no solo estas odiadas banderas y estatuas, sino cada rastro del sistema capitalista que generó los crímenes contra la humanidad que simbolizan estos objetos.La pandilla fascista reunida en el Monte Rushmore es peligrosa, al igual que la retórica que la unió: la amenaza debe tomarse en serio.¡Pero tenemos esperanza! Como el movimiento monumental que aún se desarrolla nos ha recordado, nada está escrito en piedra.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

However, he said his officers are aware of the situation.“We are remaining vigilant,” Rangel wrote. “As always we are encouraging community members to remain vigilant and report illegal or suspicious activity to police immediately.”In an email to TCU 360, Minister to the University Angela Kaufman emphasized that the university accepts students from all backgrounds and faiths.“We want every single member of our community to believe wholeheartedly that this is a campus where they are welcomed and valued for who they are and not in spite of it,” Kaufman wrote.Her sentiments echo some of the internet’s responses to the flyers. The hashtag “LoveAMuslimDay” was trending on Twitter with dozens of users expressing sympathy for Islamic citizens.
