With this investment in Pixel.bet we as a group will gain unique insight into a new and fast-growing segment.”Robin Ramm-Ericson, managing director of LeoVentures and co-founder of LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, added: “With its strong technology and mobile-first gaming experience, Pixel.bet is a perfect match for the LeoVegas. Together we will drive development for the absolute premier experience in esports betting.”Eirik Kristiansen, CEO of Pixel.bet, also spoke positively about the “unique” link-up between the two companies.He said: “We want to create value for enthusiasts and add something truly extra to our community. Pixel.bet is, for example, the first to offer log-in with mobile BankID and instant withdrawals.“In LeoVentures we have now found a unique partner and investor that understands and shares our passion.”LeoVegas recently spoke with iGamingBusiness.com about its ongoing growth plans, citing the US as a potential expansion market in the future.Last month, the firm also announced that BetUK, which was acquired from IPS as part of a £65m deal earlier this year, is now accepting sports bets in the UK.LeoVegas has also recently applied for a new licence in Sweden as the country prepares for re-regulation at the start of 2019. The company also revealed to iGamingBusiness.com recently that it could seek a licence in Spain.center_img LeoVegas seals esports investment 13th September 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Company strikes deal for 51% stake in Pixel Holding Grouplast_img read more

Two yellows and a red after big fight in European Challenge Cup final

first_imgThursday May 28, 2009 Two yellows and a red after big fight in European Challenge Cup final The European Challenge Cup final will be remembered as being one of the most fiercely confrontational matches of the season. The 15-3 win for Northampton Saints over Bourgoin was try-less, but was packed with action from start to finish. Early on in the match it looked as though Irish referee George Clancy was struggling to control matters as the fiery French side got frustrated with his decisions. Saints had expected the match to be physical, and they got exactly that as niggle crept in. Morgan Parra and Neil Best got themselves in a tussle shortly before halftime, resulting in Best receiving a messy looking black eye, and both players being shown yellow cards. Later in the match, about 2 mins after Saints replacement lock Courney Lawes put in a huge hit that injured scrumhalf Parra, Bourgoin’s Thomas Genevois decided it was payback time and unleashed a punch on Lawes, which started another brawl. Captain Julien Frier then landed a punch on Scottish prop Euan Murray, splitting Murrays eye and earning himself a meeting with the disciplinary committee, as he’s since been cited by the match citing commissioner. Murray did well to refrain from retaliating, which would have surely jeopardised his British & Irish Lions tour, la Alan Quinlan. Genevois was red carded, although he was determined to stop the ref from showing it, leaning towards the side of misconduct of a different manner. Following the next lineout, another incident sparked a small scuffle again, as Lawes put in a seemingly late and unnecessary challenge over the dead ball line. He was penalised, but some thought it should have perhaps warranted further action. It was a chaotic but enjoyable final that had moments that probably weren’t a great advert for the game of rugby. In terms of intensity though, it lacked nothing, which made for quite a spectacle.

Share your thought in the comments below. The tone may be light-hearted but the message is serious. Fisk added: “While your CRM can’t make your organisation GDPR compliant overall, it must provide the tools to enable you to be compliant. So charities across the UK need to become familiar with the requirements of the regulations, and take an honest look at whether their CRM and processes measure up. Donorfy can help up track donors’ permissions and preferences and gives you the tools to do that reliably and securely.”Donorfy’s GDPR features include a self-service preference centre that enables supporters to set their permissions via the charity’s website, and a full audit trail to show the history of consent and the privacy policy in use at the time.center_img <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Advertisement GDPR – top of the pops? Which songs does GDPR make you think of, asked Donorfy’s founder Robin Fisk. Dozens of fundraisers and charity data protection staff responded over the weekend in humorous vein to produce a GDPR Spotify playlist.The light-hearted crowdsourced playlist features tracks from Abba and Blondie to Ed Sheeran. Each track has a title with some guidance or relevance to GDPR and data protection including:Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae JepsonReturn To Sender by Elvis PresleyUnder Pressure by Queen & David BowieComplicated by Avril LavigneThe request was posted on the Fundraising Chat Facebook group and received a rapid response.SEE ALSO Tip of the Pops 2 – Now that’s what I call fundraising (13 July 2016)Robin Fisk, founder of Donorfy, explains why he started the GDPR playlist.

National and international students gather to discuss civil discourse

first_imgFacebook World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution + posts Facebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025 printStudents from all over the world spoke about the idea of civility and what it means to them in a panel Monday night.The panel, hosted by the TCU Departments of Journalism and International Studies, consisted of five students from five different countries.Chancellor Victor Boschini said that people should be able to debate issues without losing civility.“I cannot think of a more important topic to discuss right now, I am just really tired of all the anger in America and in the world,” he said. “I think it’s ridiculous that we can’t debate issues and not be friends.”Chancellor Boschini gives opening remarks at the panel. Photo Courtesy of Sam Fristachi.Panelist Nafissatou Boixel, who graduated in May, said that civility stems from knowing you can disagree.Respect and its importance to civil discourse were discussed frequently by the panel.“Respect is the main goal of any discussion,” said Nasrallah Alkhabi, a senior from Saudi Arabia.The panelists felt that social media has affected civil discourse and the words that you can say online can affect and hurt people.“Freedom of speech is a wonderful right to have, but we have to be responsible with it and not say whatever we want because you can really negatively impact a person,” Boxiel said.Student panel answering questions on Monday, October 29 in the BLUU Auditorium.

It also deplored the army’s threats to kill the head of the station.”The drafting by force of these journalists is a clear attack on the daring nature of their report that irritated the authorities,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to President Emomali Rakhmonov calling for their immediate release. “Such behaviour, as well as the threats to their superior, is unacceptable and shows that the Tajik authorities have no respect for press freedom and democratic debate. Independent journalism is still a very risky business in Tajikistan.”The conscripted three – Akram Azizov (21), Nasim Rahimov (20) and Yusuf Yunusov (21) – of the TV station SM1, were among nine journalists from SMI and another station, TRK-Asia, arrested by military police on 28 October while attending a journalist training course in the northern town of Khujand. Six of them, who were exempt from doing military service, were released but the others were sent to the town’s army base.Four days earlier, SMI had broadcast a documentary made during the training course about army squads that tracked down young people to conscript them, using violence and rejecting medical certificates justifying exemption. A senior regional army officer, Fazliddin Domonov, who denied during the film that such methods were used, reportedly threatened the journalists the day after it was broadcast.The head of SMI, Mahmujan Dadabayev, received phone calls from army officials on 5 November threatening to kill him and shut down the station.

Two Brooklyn hotel projects file for bankruptcy in one week

One of the owners, 159 Broadway Member, shares an address with Cornell Realty. The 235-room project, situated across the street from Peter Luger Steakhouse, was set to open in 2021. Construction had already begun on the building, which was also set to include residential space.And late last week, 85 Flatbush RHO Mezz, which is reportedly to be the owner of Tillary Hotel in Downtown Brooklyn, filed for bankruptcy.ADVERTISEMENTCornell Realty, in partnership with developer Lipa Rubin, purchased the 174-room hotel and 64-unit apartment building at 85 Flatbush Avenue Extension in September 2019. But the property faced foreclosure about a year later because of the pandemic-driven downturn that devastated the hospitality industry.The ownership has been apparently transferred to 85 Flatbush RHO Mezz, whose address is in care of GC Realty Advisors in Hollywood, Florida, according to the Chapter 11 petition filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
