ACMA blocks access to nine more offshore online casinos Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 13th January 2020 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has announced a further nine online casino websites to be blocked by internet service providers (ISPs) in the country as part of an ongoing clampdown on illegal activities.Roo Casino, GW Casino, Wager Beat, Joe Fortune, Ignition Casino, Casino Dingo, AU Slots, Top Bet and XBet have all been deemed by the ACMA as operating in breach of the Interactive Gambling Act 2001.The ACMA said it had received more than 79 complaints about the nine websites. The organisation has now urged Australian users of these sites to withdraw their money as soon as possible.In November, the ACMA named both Emu Casino and Fair Go Casino as the first offshore gambling sites to be blocked by ISPs in the country under new rules it began implementing earlier that month.The ACMA said that Emu Casino has since exited the Australian market and is allowing customers in the country to withdraw funds through its customer support service.According to the ACMA, more than 90 illegal companies have pulled out of the Australian market since 2017 when it started enforcing new illegal offshore gambling rules. Ordering ISPs to block access to sites has only been possible since late last year. Regions: Oceania Australia Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gamblinglast_img read more

Forget options trading! I’d stick to buying FTSE 100 growth stocks instead

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Jonathan Smith Jonathan Smith | Wednesday, 5th August, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! jonathansmith1 has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended HSBC Holdings. 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.center_img Over the past year, the rise in retail investors trading options has exploded. You only have to look at the sad news of the death of a 20-year-old in America recently who wrongly interpreted his option trade position to understand how serious it can be. Trading options have a time and a place and I’ve used them before when investing. But when looking to generate sustainable profits, I much prefer to buy FTSE 100 growth stocks outright instead.What’s stock option trading?An option is similar to an insurance contract. You pay an upfront premium for the right to be able to buy a stock (a call option) at a particular price, at a point of time in the future. For example, say you think the HSBC share price is going to rally from 330p. Instead of just buying the stock, you could buy a call option for £10 to give you the option to buy 100 shares at a price of 400p. If the share price goes to 500p, you get to buy at 400p and sell at 500p, netting a healthy profit. On the other side, if the share price falls to 300p, you only lose the £10 premium.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…Sounds great? Well, options are complex investing products. Trading them can go badly wrong, mainly if you sell options. Imagine if you sold the above option, and made £10 upfront. You open yourself up for potentially unlimited losses, as the share price could rally to any price. Whatever profit the buyer would make, you would lose as the seller. Ultimately, for most retail investors, purely trading options isn’t really appropriate.Why I prefer FTSE 100 growth stocks insteadMost people trade options because of the potential for large profits. I get that. But there’s also a large risk associated with options trading. With growth stocks, you’ve the ability to gain large profits, but your losses are limited to the amount you invest in the stock. For example, if I think the Ocado share price could continue on its stellar run, I could invest £1,000 into it today. I’d be safe in the knowledge that even if the firm went bust, I’d only lose my £1,000.Secondly, actually buying a growth stock enables me to be invested for the long run. The Ocado share price has almost doubled in the past year. For those investors who spotted the opportunity early, the Ocado share price has offered returns of 550% over five years. This long-term mindset of really benefiting from a true growth stock is what investing is all about. With options trading, you’ve a set time period. You can set the expiration date of the option for a month or a year. Most options don’t have a timeline greater than one or two years. And ultimately they’re not classified as long-term investing instruments.Stick to what you knowOptions trading may sound glamorous, especially with the recent push towards it from online investing platforms. In my opinion, stick to what you know. Buying an option can be a great insurance policy on a stock you already own, but it shouldn’t be seen as a daily profit machine. Actually buying FTSE 100 growth stocks affords you the upside potential, but won’t expose you to unlimited losses.

Chill-out chat with Alex Cuthbert

first_imgAC: People lying. When a guy was talking to my mate in a bar he said that he was best mates with Alex Cuthbert. I didn’t even know the guy and my mate was cracking up inside. When he told me we had a right laugh.RW: What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought?AC: A pair of £40 boxers. They were Alexander McQueen and I’ve only worn them once. I then washed them with a red shirt and they went pink!RW: Who would be your three dream dinner-party guests?AC: Smithy – James Corden, because he’d be funny. Then Fearne Cotton and Keith Lemon – we could both take the piss out of Fearne!RW: Who’d play you in a film of your life?AC: Who’s the guy from Dear John? Channing Tatum. He’s a good-looking guy. Scrap that, Ashton Kutcher – he’s a cool guy.RW: Just to clarify, you’ve seen Dear John?AC: Yes, there’s nothing wrong with it – it’s quite good. I watched it with a woman.RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?AC: Rom-coms! That’s probably more of a date thing – a third or fourth date. A first date would be a meal or a drink.RW: Where would you take someone for dinner – Nando’s?!AC: I’d never take a woman to Nando’s!RW: What’s your favourite expression?AC: Ain’t nothin’ but a peanut – Ronnie Coleman (bodybuilder).RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?AC: To live forever.This article appeared in the September 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK.

(Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images) The Wales wing talks racing, rom-coms and Rosie with Sarah MockfordRUGBY WORLD: What are the happiest and saddest moments of your life to date?ALEX CUTHBERT: The happiest was the night out after the Grand Slam – it was a great night in Cardiff. The saddest is probably when my nan passed away – it was just after I’d been called up for Wales Sevens.RW: What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt in life?AC: Don’t underestimate anything; never take anything for granted.RW: Do you have any nicknames?AC: Horse. And Marv, from Home Alone. I used to have long hair.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?AC: I’d like to be a professional gambler – on the horses or a poker player. I follow racing quite a lot and might go to Cheltenham or Ascot. It’s a good day out with the boys. RW: How would you like to be remembered?AC: Not as a showjumper! For having a good scoring record – a good playing-scoring ratio like Shane Williams would be good.RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?AC: The funniest thing was when I was back at college. One of the boys had his shorts pulled down but he still kept running with the ball because he was close to the line. His arse was on show and he was trying to run, but he struggled. In one game I played for the Blues, someone shouted ‘Run, Horse, Run’. That was quite funny – and I did score!RW: Who are the jokers in the squad?AC: With Wales it’s Liam Williams. He’s a hell of a character. He gives everyone gyp and is good to have around the camp. At the Blues, Dan Fish targets everyone, even the older boys.RW: Any practical jokes you can share?AC: On one of the sevens trips to New Zealand, one of the boys met a girl, got a number and started texting her. However, it was actually one of the other boy’s numbers – the girl was in on it – and when he arranged to meet up with her we were all there waiting for him!RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?AC: Model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.RW: Do you think you could take on her other half, Jason Statham?AC: I don’t know, he’s quite hard!RW: Do you have any bugbears?

The Long House is a two-storey, new-build dwelling in Somerton, Somerset, designed by Neil Choudhury Architects. The 350 square-metre project is built into a steeply sloping site and overlooks a pond, mill stream and garden designed by James Alexander Sinclair. Conceived as a liberal reinterpretation of local long houses, the plan measures six-metres wide by 40-metres long with a traditional flat gable end. A contemporary tweak is that the plan is cranked around the central entrance hall and stairwell. All habitable rooms face the garden to the south.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Nick GuttridgeThe west wing is the social heart of the house, with the kitchen, dining and sitting room located on the upper floor, and arranged in a linear sequence leading to an elevated panoramic view of the garden. The east wing contains the master bedroom suite enfilade. This is arranged in order of privacy: snug, master bedroom, master bathroom and dressing rooms. The lower floor accommodates guest accommodation, workrooms, a study, boot room, cellar, pantry and other ancillary spaces.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeSave this picture!SectionsThe house is orientated to maximise passive solar gain in the winter and provide protection from overheating in summer through the use of external sliding shutters. A careful balance has been struck between traditional, local and contemporary materials. These include local blue Lias stone from a quarry in the town, lime mortar and render, charred timber cladding in harmony with contemporary in-situ concrete, black zinc roofing, steel windows, brushed stainless steel window linings and an EPDM rubber dormer.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeInternally, exposed concrete walls and ceilings are employed on the lower floor. Where possible materials are left in their raw state, such as in-situ concrete worktops, raw oak linings, a blackened steel and oak staircase. The architect designed all the fitted furniture and fittings, which were crafted in Dorset and Somerset, and include the bespoke, lime-wax oak kitchen.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeSave this picture!© Nick GuttridgeProject gallerySee allShow lessA House for All Seasons / Poly StudioSelected ProjectsMasekela Memorial Pavilion / Adjaye AssociatesSelected Projects Sharecenter_img Neil Choudhury Architects “COPY” Lead Architects: Area:  350 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project J + C Symonds Photographs:  Nick Guttridge Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930542/the-long-house-neil-choudhury-architects Clipboard Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyAbout this officeNeil Choudhury ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSomertonEnglandOn FacebookUnited KingdomPublished on December 24, 2019Cite: “The Long House / Neil Choudhury Architects” 23 Dec 2019.

Mass protests in Chile slam growing inequality

first_imgMass protest, Santiago, Nov. 8. (Photo: Telesur)Beginning in mid-October, and continuing every Friday since then, hundreds of thousands of Chileans have been demonstrating against government neoliberal policies that have transformed their country into one of the most economically unequal in Latin America. The protests, initiated by youth over increases in transit fares, have spread from Santiago to other areas despite heavy government repression — reports claim at least 42 dead and 121 missing at the hands of police in the first two weeks. These demonstrations are the largest since a fascist coup, led by General Augusto Pinochet in 1973 with U.S. backing, crushed the progressive government of President Salvador Allende and opened up a reign of terror. What followed was massive privatization of the country’s wealth, even affecting access to water. After Pinochet’s retirement in 1990, a supposed democratic government was restored, but the country remains in the grip of a small wealthy ruling class that relies on the military and police to maintain power over an increasingly impoverished working class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
