Spanish lawmakers agree to integrate self-exclusion schemes

first_img23rd September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Once the standards are approved, each community will have a year to make the necessary technical changes and any necessary regulatory updates before the integration must be completed. Topics: Legal & compliance Regulation Currently, with the exception of the community of Castilla la Mancha, self-exclusion requests are registered with the local community’s own list. However, the country’s gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) has maintained an online self-exclusion database, the Registro General de Interdicciones de Acceso al Juego (RGIAJ), since 2015. This will see TV and radio ads only permitted between the hours of 1am and 5am, as well as a ban on sponsorship and monetary incentives to bet prohibited. JDigital has condemned these new controls as “disproportionate and unjustified”. With the DGOJ yet to publish figures for the second quarter and first half of 2020, the latest revenue figures for the market covered the first quarter of the year. For this period, revenue across all products and verticals was up 12.5% year-on-year to €218.0m, thanks to growth across all verticals. It was ultimately passed by a majority vote, with Catalonia voting against the measure, and the Basque and Valencian communities abstaining. Regions: Europe Southern Europe Spain Spanish lawmakers agree to integrate self-exclusion schemes The agreement was reached with the 17 communities and the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, which have developed their own gambling regulations, at a meeting of the national Gambling Policy Council, chaired by Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón.center_img Representatives of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities have agreed to integrate each region’s self-exclusion schemes for gambling, to better coordinate player protection efforts on a local and national level. JDigital also pointed out that its members were all integrated with the RGIAJ, allowing them to detect any attempt by self-excluded players to register for an account. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Following the agreement, representatives of the autonomous communities will now work together to develop the necessary technical and regulatory framework to facilitate the linking of the self-exclusion programmes. This must be completed within four months, then put to the Gaming Policy Council for approval. The measure was welcomed by online gaming association JDigital, which said it represents “an important advance in player protection”. It also pointed out that its members – which comprise more than 80% of licensed igaming operators in the country – had long been calling for the most. Regulation The consolidation of self-exclusion schemes is the latest move to ramp up player protection controls for gambling in Spain. The government’s focus on reducing potential for harm has primarily focused on advertising, with a raft of strict new measures notified to the European Commission in July. “We are also making ourselves available to the government to share our skills and experience gained from operating in this industry to define and implement the mechanisms that can protect users in the most efficient way,” it said.

On the square with the open eye they were asked to list things, people, situations that have been held up or given life by the church. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS[Episcopal News Service – Montevideo, Uruguay] Some of the women began saving money more than six months in advance and some traveled 12 hours by bus across the border to attend a bi-national conference, which has united for more than eight years Brazilian and Uruguayan women through stories of challenge, courage, strength and love.Their world is changing, and a few women are moving into leadership roles. Yet much needs to be done to carry out the pioneering Convention of Belém, which required countries who signed it 20 years ago to educate their people about women’s rights, to fight machismo and pass laws to protect women from violence.Earlier this month, 100 women and more than a dozen men representing the three southern most dioceses – Southwest, Southern, and Pelotas – of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil and the Anglican Diocese of Uruguay gathered at a spiritual retreat center 30 minutes outside the capital here for a two-day conference focused on the theme “church women committed to social change.”The annual gathering offers the space, said the women, for the storytelling and relationship-building that empowers them in their lives and their community ministries; one of the ways women are committed to social change in their communities is through building awareness about gender-based violence prevention and intervention.Violence against women and children is prevalent and often commonplace throughout Latin America, where often “women are not even aware of the violence they are in, or they believe that they are the only ones being abused,” said Christina Takatsu Winnischofer, president of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil’s Women’s Union.Throughout the Nov. 8-9 meeting, women and men shared stories of church and community ministries and social programs that were working well and those that faced challenges, ranging from having the resources to address the community’s needs to the red tape and restrictions that apply when churches work with government agencies to provide social services.The focus on violence against women and children, the majority of that being domestic violence, was a theme that carried over from the previous year’s conference held in the Diocese of Southern Brazil.The U.S.-based Episcopal Church, which shares a covenant agreement with the church in Brazil (which became an autonomous province in 1965), also had a presence at the two-day conference, with the Rev. Glenda McQueen, the officer for Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Rev. David Copley, officer for mission personnel, both of whom work in the church’s office of global partnerships; Episcopal Church-appointed missionaries Monica Vega and Heidi Schmidt, who are serving the province of Brazil, and Young Adult Service Corps missionaries Nina Boe of the Diocese of Olympia and Kirsten Lowell of the Diocese of Maine, who serve in the Diocese of Rio de Janeiro and the Diocese of Uruguay, respectively.From left, the Rev. David Copley, the Episcopal Church’s officer for mission personnel, Episcopal Church-appointed missionary Monica Vega, Young Adult Service Corps missionary Kirsten Lowell, Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, primate of the Province of Brazil, Young Adult Service Corps missionary Nina Boe, and Episcopal Church-appointed missionary Heidi Schmidt. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENS“There is this movement toward addressing women’s issues in our churches today, which is critical,” said Vega, who in addition to serving the church’s provincial office, also works with a nonprofit organization that works to empower women street vendors.To work on women’s issues is not something to do because it is trendy, she added, “but because it’s a sign of the Kingdom. Giving back dignity to women is a sign of the Kingdom, that’s what Jesus did.”Uruguay, one of the smallest countries in terms of both land area and population in South America, shares borders with two of the largest, Argentina to the west and the much larger Brazil to its north and east. There are 200 million people in Brazil compared with 3.5 million in Uruguay, with 9 percent and 11.5 percent of the population living in poverty, respectively, according to data from the World Bank.Still, when it comes to violence against women, size, income and other development data don’t tell the story of what the United Nations calls a “pandemic in diverse forms.” An average of 68 domestic violence cases were reported daily in Uruguay in 2013; Amnesty International has criticized the government for its inability to respond adequately to cases of violence against women. Between 2001 and 2011 more than 50,000 women were murdered mainly as a result of domestic violence, according to the Brazilian Institute for Applied Research. Brazil is the seventh most dangerous country in the world as measured by rates of violence toward women.During the Nov. 9 Eucharist service, women in pairs acted out an exercise that demonstrated what it’s like when women are treated as things, or objects – the point being that when women are treated as things, they don’t matter.When the church first started talking about violence against women it walked into uncharted territory because “violence against women isn’t something you talk about in the church,” said Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, Brazil’s primate since 2013, and bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Brazil.Archbishop Francisco de Assis da Silva, Brazil’s primate and bishop of the Diocese of Southwest Brazil, Bishop Michele Pollesel of the Anglican Diocese of Uruguay, and Bishop Humberto Maiztegue, of the Diocese of Southern Brazil. Bishop Renato Da Cruz Raatz of the Diocese of Pelotas also attended the conference. Photo: Lynette Wilson/ENSIt was something, however, that the church needed to do despite the “taboo,” da Silva said when he addressed the conference on its second day. When the church began talking about violence against women, it couldn’t deny that it exists in the church as well, and that unfortunately men don’t see it as an important topic.“It’s something that is presented by women, for women,” he said, and that’s one of the biggest obstacles to addressing the violence against women and children. “It’s something that men need to bring to the table.”Taking the lead on women’s rightsCoordinated by Anglican Service of Diakonia and Development (SADD), which coordinates social services and projects at all levels of the church, the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil embarked on a two–year study of human rights, which through grassroots feedback led to a focus on domestic violence, explained Sandra Andrade, the director of SADD.In August 2013, SADD, in partnership with Christian Aid, released its first booklet aimed at the prevention and intervention of gender-based violence against women. The booklet, which included 10 workshops aimed at both men and women, was later translated from Portuguese into Spanish and English with the help of Episcopal Relief & Development; it since has been shared in Latin America as well as Africa.A second version of the booklet updated with an additional workshop on HIV prevention strategies was released earlier this year and distributed at the conference.“Domestic Violence Against Women is a consequence of a culture constructed by a society that promotes inequalities based on the differences considered to be natural (biological) between the sexes, which determine how each person should behave because they are of one gender or another,” it reads.“Just as in all social spaces, the religious communities are not exempt from this reality and, often, contribute to the perpetration of this violence through their declarations and practices. Therefore, if as religious communities we are capable of practicing gender-related violence against women, we can also admit that we are capable of overcoming and beating this reality and of building a culture of peace based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”IsolationAmazonia, which covers more than 2 million square miles of Northern Brazil, can feel particularly isolated since it often is disconnected from government services. A bishop and two priests cover nine distinct communities where domestic violence is prevalent. “Women are literally dying from violence,” said Maria Elizabeth Santos Teixeira, a policewoman from the Diocese of Amazonia who serves as vice president of the Women’s Union.“It’s one thing to say that there are difficulties, it’s another to be able to sit with others and tell your stories,” said Santos Teixeira.The isolation Santos Teixeira sometimes feels in Amazonia can be felt in Uruguay as well. The Diocese of Uruguay was thwarted in its attempt in 2012 to become part of the province of Brazil.The Uruguayan women’s participation in the conference began out of a companion diocese relationship with the Diocese of Southwest Brazil, but the relationship extends beyond that. The church in Uruguay is more connected to the church in Brazil than to its own province.“It was the work with southern Brazil that really brought the church in Uruguay back to life; they really worked with getting a grassroots church going,” said the Rt. Rev. Michele Pollesel, who became the bishop of Uruguay in 2013 after first being rejected by the bishops of the Anglican Church of South America, formerly called the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone.One of the things the church in Uruguay has long fought for, said Pollesel, is women’s ordination, which he said he believes will come in the next 12 months as the province is in the process of approving new provincial canons.In Brazil, a long history of women’s involvement The Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil has existed for 125years in what is considered a mostly Roman Catholic country. In contrast, the Diocese of Uruguay celebrated 25 years in 2014 in a largely secular country that is considered the most liberal in Latin America.Despite Uruguay’s liberal reputation, women aren’t typically seen in decision-making roles in society; the same goes for the church.Church women in Uruguay tend to take a more traditional role, providing support at the parish level, said Gabriela Nuñez, a lay leader and psychologist who is married to a priest.On the other hand, the Episcopal Anglican Women’s Union has existed in Brazil under different names for more than 100 years, and adopted its existing name in the 1980s “to reflect the need for women to be united,” said Winnischofer, the union’s president and general secretary of the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil from 2003 to 2006.The name change also symbolized a shift in focus from what had been a traditional auxiliary role in support of the church, the elderly and the poor, to one that included women’s needs; and it happened at a time when church women came together in support of women’s ordination, which also raised the issue of the status of women in the church, said Winnischofer.The Rev. Carmen Gomes, the first woman ordained in the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, presided at the Nov. 9 Eucharist. Photo: David CopleyIn 1985, the Rev. Carmen Gomes became the first woman ordained in the Episcopal Anglican Church of Brazil, which today has 30 women priests serving throughout its nine dioceses. Additionally, women have served in leadership roles at all levels of the church.Through meetings, sharing stories and offering support for one another, the Women’s Union still works to raise the status of women in the church and society, a task that’s ever more difficult when women have full-time work and family demands, said Winnischofer.“Women are more visible in society,” she said, but they are still underrepresented in leadership roles despite the advances. She said the persistent attitude has been that “on the one hand we are visible and have a presence, that we don’t need to come to the table because we are already in the room.”– Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Bordered by the Sori-san mountain range in South Korea, the U RETREAT sits at the core of the Sari-gol valley in Hongcheon-gun Daegok-ri. Looking down on the site from as little a distance of 40 meters, a sharp vertical cliff stretches at an altitude of 100 meters. The scale of this geological formation, pinned down by enormous stones, and the vitality of the flourishing vegetation within it totally overwhelm the surroundings.Save this picture!© Kim JaeyounHongcheon-gun (洪川) Daegok-ri(垈谷), which literally means ‘wide lake’ and ‘high mound’, is a name that alludes to the long persisting conditions of the land. The wind that passes through the valley forms a sense of movement which shakes the entirety of the cliff. The small gestures of the trees, each of which shake according to their weight, come together to form a flowing cliff.Save this picture!© Kim JaeyounThis project has been asked by a retired business man from fashion industry. For a retired life, he wanted a unique and meditative accommodation located in a deep valley. The important point of this project was how local small accommodations, so it called as “Pension”, can be architecturally evolved. To do so, I conceived an individual interpretation for the nature and an analysis for diverse views from position of guests to extract a new spatial experience.Save this picture!SketchIt varies from families for one night trip to couples for a date. All of them want to take a rest at a fancy space without any disruption. They can experience a new spatiality via multi-leveling floor plan that living room, main bedroom, Korean style bedroom, bathroom, terrace and spa are divided through different levels rather than partitions. The reason of multi-leveling is that various levels can offer the diverse relationship between guest and natural scenery, which enables a colorful appreciation for the nature.Save this picture!© Kim JaeyounSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Kim JaeyounMountain viewed from the site delivered the image of flying solid mass.

These included “deconstruction” of the ’70’s-era house and retaining the original footprint; specifying SIPs construction, choosing automated LED lighting controls with a centralized driver panel, online energy monitoring, radiant heated floors, HRV & heat pump technologies, rainwater harvesting (RWH), natural landscaping, and specifying reclaimed wood and metal elements. The result is a tight, energy efficient house combining aspects of old and new.Save this picture!© Steve HornSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Steve HornThe rainwater tank & filtration system is featured as an integral part of the architectural design; showcased at the entrance to illustrate that it can be beautiful as well as functional. The raingarden captures runoff from the sloping terrain and overflow from the tank, and is incorporated in the extensive natural drought-tolerant landscaping. Upcycled and reclaimed materials are used throughout; including re-sawing the salvaged floor joists from the original house for the exterior siding, combined with boards sourced from an old movie prop warehouse. The siding from the original house was sandblasted, white washed and reused throughout the interior.Save this picture!© Steve HornThe interior design is accentuated by recessed LED lighting with a centralized driver panel & Crestron control. It boasts a ‘hacked’ Ikea kitchen in iconic Ferrari red (panels by Semi Hand-Made), upscale Euro-sized appliances, polished concrete floors, Tuscan troweling wall finishes, and a raw-steel fireplace/media cabinet. The handmade copper towel warmers are plumbed inline with the radiant heating and as the hot water cycles it detours through the art on the wall. All fixtures & appliances are low flow and energy efficient.Save this picture!© Steve HornSpecifying SIP construction enabled the building envelope to be constructed in 5 days, closed in and ready for interior finishes in 2 weeks. The mechanical & electrical infrastructure was planned & designed for SIP construction, eliminating lengthy work-arounds by those trades unfamiliar with panels vs ‘stick building’. A Zehnder 200 Heat Recovery System (HRV) ensures optimal indoor air quality and comfort for energy-efficient (tight) construction. At maximum 125 cfm it’s certified 92% efficient by the Passive House Institute. The Barn Gallery tested at 1.02 ACH50 (Building Performance Center).Save this picture!© Steve HornThe SANDEN SANCO2 Heat Pump/Water Heater was the first UL-listed installation in the US. It is highly energy efficient, absorbing heat from outside air to heat water (both radiant floor and domestic hot water); at a cost of just pennies/day. The Barn Gallery is a great example of how thoughtful design & innovative technologies can create a sustainable building and better living experience.Save this picture!© Steve HornProject gallerySee allShow lessK Building, School of Architecture and Construction Autonomous University of Chile /…Selected ProjectsAERIAL FUTURES: The Third DimensionPanel Discussion Share ArchDaily Barn Gallery / INCLINEDESIGN Photographs Barn Gallery / INCLINEDESIGNSave this projectSaveBarn Gallery / INCLINEDESIGN “COPY” Save this picture!© Steve Horn+ 17Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeINCLINEDESIGNOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 16, 2019Cite: “Barn Gallery / INCLINEDESIGN” 16 Apr 2019.
