It argued at the time they should include elements such as the 18+ age limit or information about the national problem gambling helpline.The association’s secretary general Gustaf Hoffstedt said he welcomed the KO’s decision, describing the lack of consumer protection information in the Trisskrapet segments as “the elephant in the room” when it comes to games and consumer protection.“The regulatory framework for consumer protection for real-money games exists for a good reason, and the rules must be followed,” he explained. “There is no exception for government-owned gaming companies.Svenska Spel has appealed the decision, however, which Hoffstedt said he could not understand.“Why does Svenska Spel not act transparently and comply with KO’s decision? It is extremely strange that the state-owned gaming company opposes the directives that come from the state authority that exists to promote safe and secure gambling,” he said.In related news, the KO last week said there had been a positive development in terms of advertising content in the country, with operators more compliant with regulations set out in the Swedish Gaming Act.Having examined gambling ads across a number of channels, including TV, podcasts, magazines, the internet and social media, it said the volume was unchanged from 2019 – when concerns about excessive advertising were raised. Marketing of jackpots and bonus offers had also remained consistent year-over-year, it added.The promotion of bonus offers was an area in which improvements had been made, but where there were still many shortcomings, it warned however.“The Consumer Agency believes that in many cases clearer, clearer and more easily accessible information on the terms and conditions of the offer should be provided,” it said. “This applies both to initial banner ads and to the gaming companies’ websites.” Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Email Address Sweden’s consumer ombudsman has ruled that Trisskrapet, a regular TV spot broadcast on free-to-air channel TV4 in which guests play Svenska Spel scratchcards, is a form of advertising, and must therefore include responsible gaming information.last_img read more

Ben Youngs: How to throw a dummy

first_img“You want to get on the inside shoulder of the second defender. Your head should be looking at ball-carriers nearby – the No 10 or a forward running short. Keep the ball close to your hip and move it across your body, so they think you’re going to pass.”Run hard: Support runners must be convincing, like Leicester’s Manu Tuilagi here. Photo: Getty Images5. SUPPORT PLAY“If you’re on your own and throw a dummy, you’re not fooling anyone. So make sure there are runners around you – and they need to be genuine options. They play a key role – running a hard line to convince defenders that they’re a genuine threat.”Mind the gap: Ben Youngs fools Australia’s defence to score. Photo: Getty Images6. WATCH THE EYES“As soon as the defender’s head turns, eyes and shoulders looking at the player outside, pull the ball back before he figures it out and fly forward into the space. If he stays fixed on you then pass, because there should be a hole for someone outside.” England scored three tries from Ben Youngs dummies in the autumn Tests of 2016 – one against Australia that the No 9 scored himself and two against South Africa, which George Ford and Owen Farrell finished off. Here he explains when it’s the right time to throw a dummy and how to trick opponents with sleight of hand…1. CHECK THE SPEED“First of all, it’s all about how quick the ruck is and whether you’re on the front foot. How quickly has the ball come back out of the ruck? Was the ruck created because of a good carry? If it’s a yes to both, then it’s a good option to run.”Breakdown check: Where are the defenders and support players? Photo: Getty Images2. WHO’S THERE?“As you approach the breakdown you should look to see where the defenders are and who’s in front of you. Forwards or backs? Are the defenders tight or is the spacing wide? If they’re wide, it’s a good cue because there should be some holes.”Round the corner: Ben Youngs starts to run in an arc. Photo: Getty Images3. BODY ANGLES“Once you pick up the ball, run laterally, almost in an arc, to get outside the first defender. As you get closer to the second defender, your body shape should be square so you can see all the options. It’s key to square up to the second defender.”Body language: Israel Folau looks for his support players. Photo: Getty Images4. HEAD START LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Leicester and England scrum-half Ben Youngs explains how to fool opponents with sleight of handcenter_img Dummy time: Ben Youngs cuts through the Australia defence to score a try. Photo: Getty Images WHAT YOU COULD DODrills-wise, play two-on-two to practise getting outside the first defender. If the second defender turns in, then put the pass out wide; if he stays wide, try the dummy.Keep the ball close to your hip so if you don’t throw the dummy, you’re still in a position to pass.Be patient – you can’t pre-empt a dummy. It just comes with space. You have to wait for the option, rather than go looking for it and make a poor decision. Sometimes you’ll go a whole game without an option coming along and you have to wait for the next game.The people running on the outside have to be committed and convincing.This article first appeared in the March 2017 issue of Rugby World magazine.

The house is located on a gated community in Zapopan, México. The main entrance is accessible through a roundabout with an old laurel.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe project was developed in a short period of time; however the construction lasted a little longer than expected. The approved design did not suffer any changes because the owners bet on the original idea.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe formal concept aims to display simple and lightweight items that observed from the outside seems to float on a wooden base. From inside the bodies give the feeling of being free and unsupported.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe location of the areas is generated from a “T” volume, with one elongated arm which is planted in the ground forming two generous voids, the first on the main entrance and the second on the inside. The pedestrian entrance contains a lightweight floating cover upon wooden walls that embrace the visitor, passing through a stairway escorted by gardens. The car entrance is extremely subtle; the gate is also covered in wood, disappearing from the view, thus achieving a smooth wall on which the second level of the house arises.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe house has a discreet entrance but as you go through, different vanishing points and limits are incorporated and accompany visitors to finish with a transparent and open space that unfolds towards the back yard and pool.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe living room is a generous double-height space, connected to the entry by a water surface. The solid exposed-concrete ladder generates a very powerful sculptural volume visually. The kitchen is discrete, but is attached to the dining room on one side and the services on the other; this space opens to the side garden visually through a floor to ceiling window.Save this picture!© Carlos Díaz CoronaThe dining room is spacious, open and distributes the social area, fully linked to the terrace, one of the most used areas in the house due to the mild climate practically the whole year in Guadalajara.

Shepherd, vice president for student affairs and the C. L. Kelly Johnson Professor of Aeronautics and Mechanical Engineering, described him as “an accomplished scholar and author who brings to this position twenty-five years of experience in teaching and mentoring our students, and who has shown a keen interest in the welfare of our undergraduate students in and outside of the classroom.”In his new role as dean of undergraduate students, Gilmartin will work on fostering academic and personal growth through counseling and support for student activities as well as acting as a liaison between students and faculty, says Shepherd.A recipient the Feynman Prize, Caltech’s highest teaching award, Gilmartin says he was attracted to the job of dean because “I have always found our students to be so interesting, and engaging. They are extraordinarily optimistic. They seem to have a positive attitude toward the world—they’re curious, and they’re open to new things. What more could you ask for?”He says he sees his role as helping undergraduates develop and thrive. “I’m excited to work with students to help foster their intellectual and academic growth and their development as individuals,” he says. “Our students are remarkably diverse and they have diverse interests. The Caltech curriculum is demanding, and focused, no doubt. But within it, and through it, our students do find so many opportunities.”He adds, “The dean’s office provides essential support. But we can also encourage our students to do what they are inclined to do, to challenge themselves, to try new things.”Gilmartin received his undergraduate degree in English from Oberlin College in 1985. He received both his MS (’86) and PhD (’91) in English from the University of Chicago, joining the faculty of Caltech in 1991.Barbara Green, who has served as the interim dean over the past year will return to her regular position as associate dean in July. In his announcement, Shepherd thanked Green “for her work with our students and service to the Institute [and for] being so willing and committed to the success of our undergraduate student body.”last_img read more
