The GB Gambling Commission has published guidance to help consumers stay safe when gambling online during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.The regulator said that in light of the outbreak and government requirements for people to stay in their home, it is likely that more people will be engaging with online gambling websites.The Commission yesterday (26 March) issued new advice to all of its licensed gambling companies to outline expectations regarding keeping consumers safe and has now also set out the protections in place to safeguard players.The regulator reminded consumers that all licensed sites have a built-in tool that allows them to set deposit limits, which it said will help both the player and the operator keep spend at a manageable level.Meanwhile, the Commission has partnered with Twitter to create guidance aimed at supporting users who want to limit the amount of gambling-related content they see on the social media platform. Users can adjust their Twitter safety tools to help mitigate the risk of exposure to such messages.The regulator also pointed out that consumers who think they may be gambling too much can self-exclude from websites through the Gampstop scheme. All licensed operators in the UK are required to participate in the scheme from 31 March.Operators licensed by the Commission are required to make a summary of their terms and conditions available to users, with customers required to read these to fully understand the risks associated with gambling. Similarly, sites must give users access to historic account activity so that they can monitor their gambling.In terms of unlicensed operators, the regulator warned that there is an increased risk of illegal overseas websites trying to seek British customers in the current circumstances. The Commission said that it would be tracking and taking action against such sites where we identify them, while consumers can check its licence register to see if a site is approved.It also recommended players seeking further support about their gambling habits, call the National Gambling Helpline for provides confidential information and advice. In addition, Public Health England has issued guidance and tips on how individuals can maintain mental wellbeing if they need to self-isolate at home.“We will continue to monitor the impacts of Covid-19 on gambling,” the Commission said. “We will be looking carefully at gambling operators’ activities and any new risks to consumers and will continue to take action where needed to protect people from harm.”The regulator’s guidance has been published alongside a new ten-point plan from the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) to ensure its members step up player protection efforts during the pandemic. Members will be required to step monitoring of customer behaviour, as well ad delivering tailored responses and new actions to reflect the “unprecedented situation” of social distancing and home working.

I’d buy these 2 FTSE 100 dividend stocks Low interest rates may mean FTSE 100 dividend stocks could become increasingly popular among income-seeking investors over the coming years.However, in recent months, many former FTSE 100 dividend champions have cut their payouts to investors. 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…But some companies have held firm. Two of these FTSE 100 dividend stocks, in particular, look attractive in the current market. Buying these shares today may lead to high capital and income returns over the coming years. FTSE 100 dividend stocks to buy Utility group National Grid (LSE: NG) is one of the few FTSE 100 companies that’s continued to report high demand for its services in the economic lockdown. Its latest trading update noted that the firm has “not seen a material impact on our financial performance” as a result of the coronavirus crisis. While the report did go on to note that the group was starting to see some delays creeping into its capital programme, it’s reassuring to see its underlying business performing well. The group also said it has amassed £5.5bn of financing to support its operations through these uncertain times. The FTSE 100 company is yet to decide on the level of its latest dividend payout. But, considering the limited impact the lockdown has had on operations, management could decide to hold the dividend firm. As such, with the shares currently yielding 5.5%, the FTSE 100 champion could well become a more popular income share while interest rates are stuck at historic lows.SSEAnother FTSE 100 company that may continue to attract income investors’ attention is SSE (LSE: SSE). The energy group is also likely to report a robust trading performance during the first half of 2020. Although the FTSE 100 company has faced headwinds in recent years, before coronavirus it was making encouraging progress on its new strategy.While SSE has been investing heavily in new renewable energy assets, the company recently sold its energy supply business. This removed the firm from the unpredictable and competitive retail supply business.By focusing on renewable energy, the company is positioning itself firmly for the future, and demand for its experience is rising. For example, SSE recently sold 51% of its $3.7bn offshore wind farm project to French energy major Total. These initiates should help protect the company’s dividend. Analysts had been expecting the group to reduce its payout this year, reflecting the sale of the retail energy business. However, even after this decline, the stock is set to yield more than 6%. After falling by nearly 25% from its one-year high, the FTSE 100 share appears to offer a margin of safety. Considering SSE’s defensive nature, it could offer a relatively attractive total return in the coming years during an uncertain period for the world economy.Therefore, it could be a worthwhile investment at present.

This settlement for eighteen families has been built for and with a Gahinga-based group of Batwa, a marginalized people living in great poverty and destitution ever since their eviction from the forest. 10 acres of land, donated by the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust for this purpose, has now become the new home of over 100 people. All materials utilized for the construction were donated by Volcanoes Safaris and guests of their nearby Mount Gahinga Lodge.

The floor plans vary slightly but have all been based on a model house that was built by the future users themselves using branches and grass. All homes have a covered veranda for cooking, a small common room, and tiny bedrooms. The houses are built on rubble stone foundations using stones collected on site. Walls are constructed of eucalyptus poles with a bamboo grid and finished with earth plaster. Roofs are made of metal sheets with a papyrus layer above.Save this picture!© Will Boase Photography | Craig HowesThe village layout was not drawn; instead, the placement of individual houses was done ‘on the go’ by the builders themselves. They were encouraged to respond to trees, rocks and other features; to avoid verandas facing the strong winds coming from the volcanoes; not to align the houses in strict rows, and to keep them tightly spaced as wind protection and to maximize the space available for farming. This has led to an interesting, random pattern that will, over time and with the help of trees, create comfortable public spaces and niches.Save this picture!Building Instructions 1Save this picture!Building Instructions 4Save this picture!Building Instructions 8To one side of the village, built into the slopes of a ravine, are two small buildings accommodating latrines?

The building has a total height of 6m and features two garage-like doors that can be swung open to increase the size and flexibility of the space. Given its complex structure, the construction team was issued with basic drawings plus an ‘IKEA-style’ assembly manual.Save this picture!© Will Boase Photography | Craig HowesProject gallerySee allShow lessOpificio Golinelli / diverserighestudioSelected ProjectsBoys Hostel Block / Zero Energy Design LabSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Unnamed Road, UgandaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Croquet might be seen as a quintessentially Oxford sport; this year’s cuppers competition has an entry of over 500 players. However, outside Oxford the game is very much a specialist sport, and for this reason there are no university leagues. During the croquet season the players therefore instead battle out for the Frank Cooper Varsity Bowl against Cambridge, compete in the nationwide Longman Cup and play a number of friendlies, such as the game against High Wycombe last Saturday. This fixture was not without a history. The Oxford team entered the Longman Cup for the first time last year, and was defeated in the first round by High Wycombe. It was a tense affair, finishing 4:3 to the Buckinghamshire club, and the result may well have been different if the teams had been playing to the 3hour 30-minute time limit set in the rules. The friendly was a chance to seek revenge after this earlier loss. A game of croquet takes most of the day, and the two teams of four commenced at nine in the morning with doubles. The captain Stuart Romeril and Peter Barker lost to the High Wycombe duo of Bryan Judson and June Robinson, but the other Oxford doubles team, Simon Proctor and Andrew Cottrell, won their game to level the tie going into the lunch break. After the break all four team members engaging in singles play, and the players were paired together on a handicap system, similar to that of golf. Croquet has been dubbed ‘snooker on grass’, and the singles game between the Oxford captain Stuart Romeril and David Croker exemplified this. Like professional snooker, the players in croquet aim to create the opportunity to finish in one go, very similar to break building in snooker. After a scrappy start to the game, which could be compared to safety play in snooker, Stuart broke away and created an early lead. However, the points scored and the hoops passed can be a misleading guide to who’s winning because a good player, given the right opportunity, should finish the course in two goes or less. This theory was put into practice when, after a relatively easy miss, the Oxford captain let his opponent back into the game, and subsequently lost by 5 points. In the other singles the Oxford players won twice and lost once, and therefore the day ended in what the Oxford captain called “an honourable draw”, the scores in games three a piece. The Oxford team still have a number of home friendlies throughout term, but the main focus will be the Longman Cup, in which their first challenge will be an away fixture in Bristol, and of course the Varsity match, both of which will take place in June.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003
A motion has been passed by St John’s College JCR and MCR in favour of adopting a tortoise as a College pet.Undergraduates are now awaiting final approval from college authorities before purchasing the animal which will inhabit the College gardens and ‘boost the collegiate spirit’.Commenting on the new addition to St John’s, JCR President Martha MacKenzie commented, “Everyone was very enthusiastic about getting a pet… The MCR went on to pass a motion in favour of a tortoise so it was brought back this week and there was much excitement. The motion passed without any objections and with lots of enthusiasm!” St John’s student Rachel Dedmen stated “We chose a tortoise because they are relatively low maintenance, and could live quite happily in our gardens, with dedicated Tortoise Reps to guard their welfare.”She added, “The tortoise will only enrich the St John’s experience, and quickly be a source of College pride – taking part in the annual Corpus Tortoise Race – and becoming a figure in St John’s history, (it will outlive all of us).”Jeremy Evans, also a student at St John’s College stated “I’m fairly neutral to the tortoise”, but commented “The extent to which it would alter my St John’s experience would probably be going to see it once or twice.”Though funds are yet to be finalised it has been agreed that the start-up expenses, as well as an annual running cost, will be shared between the JCR and the MCR.It is hoped that the tortoise will help to create closer ties between the JCR and the MCR.
