Calls for new London airport

first_img whatsapp Tags: NULL CALLS for expansion at Heathrow were rekindled yesterday after a report found the airport was losing out to European rivals.The report, overseen by Transport for London deputy chairman Daniel Moylan, found rivals including Frankfurt, Madrid and Paris had pushed Heathrow to seventh in terms of destinations served by international airports worldwide, from second in 1990.Business leaders pounced on the report to call for renewed consideration of expansion at the airport.Chief executive of London Chamber of Commerce Colin Stanbridge said: “The capital cannot afford to wait for thirty to forty years for a new airport without real improvements in the medium to short term. London is already under economic threat because of the lack of runway capacity.“A third runway at Heathrow would bring relatively swift economic benefits generating between £8.6bn and £12.8bn through increased productivity and around £20bn in wider benefits including new jobs.”London mayor Boris Johnson backed the report, and called for a new airport to be constructed, urging a reconsideration of his idea for a new hub in the Thames estuary.

32Red warned over ads after Jack and the Beanstalk error

first_img 32Red warned over ads after Jack and the Beanstalk error Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates 25th September 2019 | By contenteditor The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has warned Kindred Group-owned 32Red after two paid ads for a game described as “high risk” appeared in the results of a search for ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ on Google. Tags: Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has warned Kindred Group-owned 32Red after two paid ads for a game described as “high risk” appeared in the results of a search for ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ on Google.Two paid-for Google search ads were displayed when the search term “jack and the beanstalk” was used, linking to the 32Red site. Each featured information about a 150% deposit bonus on offer for customers that signed up and played the game.The ASA challenged whether the ads were likely to be of particular appeal to children due to their content and if they were directed at those aged below 18 years of age through the selection of media or context in which they appeared.32Red said that the ads were part of a group of adverts targeted at Google users who used search terms corresponding with the names of 32Red games, including Jack and the Beanstalk.The operator said it classed Jack and the Beanstalk as a high risk game and that visitors to its website were not able to play until they had verified their age. However, 32Red admitted the game had been included on its site’s list of slot games in error.The operator confirmed that it removed the adverts as soon as it was informed of the ASA’s concerns and also checked its other high risk games were not being actively advertised. In addition, it said it had since taken steps to ensure this does not happen again.In response, the ASA said said the first page of organic search results for the term ‘jack and the beanstalk’ all related to the children’s fairy tale of the same name. The ASA also acknowledged the ads’ only reference to Jack and the Beanstalk were in the headings in a plain font.However, the ASA said that as it is a popular children’s fairy tale, reference to Jack and the Beanstalk meant the ads were likely to be of particular appeal to children.The ASA also said there was a strong possibility the term ‘jack and the beanstalk’ would be input as a search term by children or adults who were accompanied by a child.As a result, the ASA ruled that by targeting ads to search engine users who used that term, 32Red had not specifically targeted ads only at those aged 18 or over, and therefore directed gambling ads to those aged under 18 years of age.Although the ASA praised 32Red’s swift action in remove the ads, it ultimately ruled that it breached a number of CAP Code (Edition 12) rules. It was in breach of rule 16.1, which states gambling ads must be socially responsible and protect minors and vulnerable people from being harmed. 32Red also fell foul of rules 16.3 and 16.3.12 (stating that gambling ads must not apeal to minors) and 16.3.13 (ads must not appeal to minors based on their context).The ASA said the ads must not appear again in their current form and instructed 32Red to ensure future ads do not have particular appeal to those aged under 18 years of age and are not directed at under-18s through the selection of media or context in which they appeared.The ruling comes after Kindred last week set out plans to display responsible gambling messages on the shirts of 32Red’s partner football clubs during the course of the 2019-20 season.The initiative will see responsible gambling messaging dominate all matches where two teams sponsored by 32Red play each other.

England v Samoa analysis: Six moments of class from George Ford

first_img Livewire: Ford looks for support after slicing through for a line break against Samoa George Ford decorated his first Test start with some flashes of brilliance during England’s 28-9 defeat of Samoa. We analyse the best bits. Ford’s speed of foot and mind make him a nightmare to shackle when there are multiple runners in motion. After England again manufacture a fantastic platform from another slick lineout, he has a chance to sting Samoa as Ben Youngs whips the ball away:With May and Barritt in close attendance, defenders are sucked in. Ford needs no encouraging to have a crack:In the red circle here we see some important gamesmanship from Barritt, who maintains on the same course to obstruct some Samoa tacklers. While the Saracen has critics from an attacking angle, both here and for the May try his role was pivotal.A pump off his left hand from Ford sends Johnny Leota drifting and the gap is created. But the timing of the next pass is equally impressive:Isolating the moment Ford releases the ball, the body language of both Ken Pisi and Lemi is telling. Their shoulders are both facing the Bath man, meaning they are at least semi-committed to him. A look at Ford’s work from the reverse angle gives a great idea of his vision:If Brown had caught this on the run, a simple transfer would have seen Anthony Watson over. As it was, England’s full back had a try himself just minutes into the second period.England 16-6 Samoa, 52 minutes: Cross-kick perfectionFor the third time in this piece, England’s lineout is the origin of some effective back play. Though Samoa stand off the maul, they are penalised by referee Jaco Peyper. With advantage, Ford has a shot to nothing and spies that the visitors are rather narrow:Now, what makes this a devastating cross-kick is its flat trajectory. The ball reaches Watson rapidly and he hardly has to break stride. Again, the reverse angle is insightful:Seven minutes later with Samoa reduced to 14 men, May added his second and England threatened to run up a heavy scoreline. However, the game descended into a scrappy affair until a harum-scarum ending.England 28-9 Samoa, 81 minutes: More gain-line slicingIn some ways, this felt like an appropriate finish to the game – bright promise but underlying frustration. Ford’s run is clearly a fine piece of athleticism. Still it is important to acknowledge the awareness too. Look who he bypasses: TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It says a great deal for the precocious potential of George Ford and his dazzling years in England‘s age-group ranks that a maiden international start at senior level seemed overdue. Remember, the fly half is not 22 until next March.By then, he might well have won another five caps in the No 10 jersey too. Certainly, during a 28-9 victory over Samoa that was fractured and disjointed in patches, Ford was responsible for some of his team’s most cohesive, eye-catching passages. If brushing himself off after some traditionally bone-shuddering (and, in my opinion, fair) Pacific Islander tackling showed guts, there was also plenty of guile.To beat Australia and end this testing autumn on a high, England must be more exact. Here is a run-down of six moments in which Ford demonstrated his worth to Stuart Lancaster.England 0-3 Samoa, 14 minutes: Boot to ballA fairly worrying aspect of England’s approach on Friday night was how loose they were in attack. Too often Lancaster’s charges strayed from structure and, in an attempt to inject pace into proceedings, conceded turnovers from either handling errors or a lack of support at the breakdown.This clip comes just after a particularly frantic spell. As you can see, carrier Joe Marler gets isolated and Samoa lock Filo Paulo pounces to pilfer possession. The pinball continues as Chris Robshaw races in to win the ball back, and Rob Webber does well to pass away.However, with the hosts behind on the scoreboard thanks to an early Tusi Pisi penalty, Ford then makes the practical decision to take hold of the territorial battle. Skidding the kick low, he calmly makes the most of the conditions to drive Samoa back and bring England direction.England 3-3 Samoa, 19 minutes: May unleashedRegardless of whether or not Mike Brown‘s pass drifted forward, there is always something aesthetically pleasing about a first-phase try. Unsurprisingly, Ford is the pivotal figure as England’s backline capitalise on excellent ball from the tail of the lineout.The primary component of the score is a midfield wrap-around between Ford and Owen Farrell. It is executed flawlessly as the pair of former junior teammates build on their instinctive understanding:Johnny Leota (circled in blue) is fixed by decoy runner Brad Barritt and Farrell can lift a pass across his body to Ford. The fly half then has his opening and takes advantage:On receiving the ball back from Farrell, Ford accelerates away. Crucially though, he remains mindful of space and curves back infield – as accentuated by the red line. This both attracts Samoa defenders and allows Brown and Anthony Watson to retain width. In fact, this was arguably the most threatening Brown has ever looked for England in terms of hitting the line from deep in phase-play.To nit pick, May would possibly have been under the posts untouched with a simple cut here, but Brown is given enough time to find his right wing on the inside. While the score lifted England, their lead was soon cut as Pisi landed another penalty. Ford instigated an immediate reply, though.England 10-6 Samoa, 23 minutes: Pinpoint restartMopers do not last long in Lancaster’s set-up. Feeling sorry for oneself is not a habit he endures. As such, this would have delighted him. Here, straight after Pisi lands a three-pointer, Ford exhibits the controlled urgency Lancaster wants. He organises his chasers early and weights the kick perfectly.The restart has become more important in modern rugby as sides get better at recovering them. Ford’s effort above comes before Samoa are set and lands precisely on the head of five foot seven David Lemi. Its hang-time also allows Watson and Barritt to charge into the catcher’s eye-line:Lemi spilt, England won a penalty from the scrum and Ford added three points to get England back up and running.England 13-6 Samoa, 33 minutes: Scything break Circled in blue are Maatuilmanu Leiatua and Viliamu Afatia, two Samoa replacements – a hooker and loosehead prop. It is a classic mis-match and one Ford exploits clinically. It is just a shame that Dave Attwood cannot hold on.Ford will almost certainly be handed the reins against the Wallabies, and with them a chance to build on what was a fine display. England need to capitalise on every opportunity he creates.last_img read more

Ireland beat Scotland, keeping Grand Slam hopes alive

first_imgSunday Mar 15, 2009 Ireland beat Scotland, keeping Grand Slam hopes alive Ireland beat Scotland 22-15 in a bruising Six Nations clash yesterday to close in on a first championship in 24 years and edge within one victory of repeating its one and only grand slam of 1948.A powerful Scottish effort gave the home side a 12-9 advantage at the break after fullback Chris Paterson outkicked Irish flyhalf Ronan O’Gara by four penalties to three.Ireland’s recalled scrumhalf Peter Stringer sent replacement number eight Jamie Heaslip away for his second try of the campaign and O’Gara followed up his conversion with a drop goal. He traded penalties with Paterson before the visitors saw the game out.Ireland faces defending champions Wales in Cardiff next week with a two-point lead on top of the standings and a much greater points-difference advantage as it hopes to at least end its long championship drought.

Required fields are marked * Make a comment One foster parent complained that the teenager she was in charge of didn’t come back home some nights.“Just stayed out like she thought she was grown,” was the follow-up grumble after announcing the young lady’s wayward behavior.So, what were the consequences?What kind of conversation took place regarding rules of the home, the expectations, and the all-important discussion of consequences?Parents, and foster parents in particular, all too often determine that rules don’t matter enough to discuss them, which is the lead mechanism for enforcing them.,Foster parents are known to complain that the kids in their care have been allowed at another placement to do whatever they want. These kids, the conversation goes, don’t listen to anybody.Well, if you don’t say something there’s nothing for them to hear, that means nothing for them to listen to!The excuse that former placements were lax is all the more reason for the current placement people need to step up to the plate. That is, the foster parents have a much bigger duty to let it be known, in no uncertain terms, that there are rules in their home and that everyone is expected to adhere to them.What kind of rules for foster kids? Why not the same kind of rules that would be put into place for our own kids because we want them all to be safe, smart and successful.Household rules:1) Parent has to meet kid’s friends. They are welcome to come to visit and when they do, the parent gets introduced to them2) When kids are leaving the house, Parent will have to know where they are going and who they are going with. A time is established when the kid is to return, AND if there are any changes in plans, the kid must call and let parent know.3) Parent will know how much money the kid is carrying.4) Parent will be given the contact information of the parents of the people the kid is on an outing with5) Parent has absolute authority to approve or cancel any and all outings6) If the outing includes riding in a car, Parent will have to see the driver’s license and the person’s proof of insurance.Rules aren’t worth anything if they aren’t enforced. Natural-birth parents often want to be their kid’s friend, so when it comes to enforcement they shy away from doing the hard stuff.Foster parents, and I know because they’ve told me, just don’t feel it is worth “the trouble.”Raising kids, whether foster or birth, can be a troublesome adventure, and the troubles increase the more parents avoid doing their job.Staying out all night probably isn’t an isolated unacceptable behavior and if some adult doesn’t address the problem, then what?Staying out overnight and getting away with it leads to staying out several more nights and showing up back home whenever it’s convenient.Since the troublesome word about foster parents is that most are in it for the check, I’ll bet if the check only covered the actual nights Ms Teeny-Bopper were in the foster home and in bed, this not coming home would not be tolerated.Ah, the good old dollar so often changes the way people think and behave.

Matos, Rasslan give Bears a winning edge

first_imgOffensive Player of the Week: Mariam Rasslan – BearsDefensive Player of the Week: Aviv Talmor – JetsTeamwork/Leadership Player of the Week: David Matos – Bears Flying high after handing the now (10-1) Colts their first defeat, the (4-6) Jets turned their sights to downing the (1-8) Bears as they wrapped up week 8 of the JCC of Bayonne Indoor Flag Football Jr. Division campaign. Trailing 16-14 after the Bears hit their mark with TDs by David Matos and Mariam Rasslan followed by 4 extra points by Matos, the Jets seemed a little unfocused in spite of Christian Benson (1 TD, 2 expts) and Anthony Baez (1 TD) trying to light a spark. Using short passes and a “hurry up” offense, the Bears kept the Jets guessing as they built a 28-14 lead as Amir Asouti and David Matos tallied TDs. The Jets finally perked up to make it a 28-26 contest with TD strikes to Aviv Talmor and Jack Kruchkowski. Holding a slim two point advantage, the Bears made it a 10 point game as Matos (1TD) and Rasslan (2 expts) kept piling up points. Down 36-26, the Jets Anthony Baez took flight again for a rushing TD and a two point snare to once again make it a two point game at 36-34, Bears. Searching for a knockout blow, the Bears reeled off twenty two unanswered points highlighted by the efforts of Mariam Rasslan (1 TD, 4 expts) and David Matos (2 TDs) with three key defensive stops by Louai Asouti spurring the Bears to a 58-34 win.Week 8 Jr. Divisionlast_img read more
