SafeCharge puts its money on Italy’s future

first_img Regions: Europe Southern Europe Italy Email Address SafeCharge is confident about the future of Italian gambling after bolstering its position in the market through a deal with leading operator Snaitech.The payments technology company has been working with Sisal in Italy for two years, and its SafeCharge Payments Engine will now integrate Snaitech’s entire end-to-end payment processing infrastructure.The deal comes just as Italy introduces its gambling advertising ban, a move seen by some as an indication that the government will attempt to constrain the burgeoning gaming market.However, SafeCharge COO Yuval Ziv (pictured) is convinced the future is bright for Italian gaming thanks to its “comprehensive” structure, and believes his company’s high standards of compliance and reliability can help maintain trust in the sector.“We do not see any significant pressure generated by the upcoming regulation specifically,” he said.“We believe the Italian igaming legislation is the most comprehensive and robust across Europe and we see a great opportunity for our technology to assist many new and established brands in driving conversion rates and improving the customer experience.“Having developed an unrivalled track record working with merchants within complex and regulatory-heavy markets such as gaming and financial services, we believe there is a real opportunity for SafeCharge to provide flexible solutions and an innovative approach for merchants looking to comply to the toughest regulatory environments.”Snaitech believes its players will welcome the opportunity to embrace a variety of preferred payment methods, including Visa and Mastercard schemes and a variety of Italy’s most popular e-wallets including PayPal. Users can also access SafeCharge Cashier, a fully-optimised payment system enabling secure deposit and withdrawal of funds.With Sisal and Snai jointly owning around 15% of Italy’s online casino market and 18% of betting, SafeCharge believes it is in prime position to attract further like-minded partners.“Italy is a strategic market for us, particularly for gaming, travel and retail/e-commerce,” Ziv said. “We found that innovation, performance and business optimisation are the key main drivers necessary to further stimulate this digital revolution and our development team is quickly fulfilling the requests of some of the most demanding customers in the region.“As more customers realise the benefits of implementing a flexible, robust and open payments technology infrastructure, SafeCharge will keep on growing steadily.” 20th July 2018 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Finance Topics: Finance Tags: Payments AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Payments leader says its business as usual as it partners with Snaitech SafeCharge puts its money on Italy’s futurelast_img read more

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: Italy Under the terms of the agreement, AYX branding will feature across Asian channels during the club’s home games, courtesy of LED pitch-side displays. Steven Chang, AYX’s chief marketing officer, said: “This partnership is of great significance for both brands, bringing together passionate Roma fans and millions of users of AYX. Asia-facing operator AYX has become an official regional betting partner of Serie A football club AS Roma. 9th February 2021 | By Richard Mulligan “Asia has always been of particular interest to Roma and AYX is the ideal partner to help us grow.” Giorgio Brambilla, Roma’s commercial director, said: “This partnership is in line with the club’s ambitions and I firmly believe it will also allow both brands to further develop their commercial strategy on an international level. Topics: Sponsorship While Roma is unable to sign domestic gambling partners in Italy due to the Dignity Decree laws introduced in 2019, the club – currently lying fourth in the Serie A table – is able to partner with overseas operators. The domestic ban applies to all gambling-related products and services across all media platforms – including television, websites and radio – and sports clubs are prohibited from carrying sponsors from the industry. However, it does not apply to partnerships abroad. Tags: AYX Asia AS Roma Sponsorship “With AYX’s footprint in Asia growing all the time, this new partnership will open up new opportunities for strategic development and a mutual win-win, ushering in a new era for sports gaming and entertainment.” “It is hugely positive for our brand to be associated with the AS Roma name, with all its history and significance, and I strongly believe this partnership marks an important step in our growth strategy. AS Roma signs new Asian partner AYX In addition, the agreement will also provide AYX with strategic tools such as use of the Roma brand for use in promotions on digital platforms and social media as it seeks greater exposure across Asia.

Covid-19 drug maker’s share price triples! Here’s what I’m doing now

Manika Premsingh | Tuesday, 28th April, 2020 | More on: DDDD The share price of 4D pharma (LSE: DDDD) is on a tear as I write. It’s up a whole 197% from its lowest point in late March. This is a sharp rise by any standards. And for good reason.It received a go ahead for the next phase of its Covid-19 treatment a few days ago.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…Long-term potentialPromising as this sounds, as a long-term investor I’d like to take a closer look at DDDD to understand its potential prospects. It was founded in 2014, and has been listed on AIM since. It’s pre-revenue right now and is researching a line of treatment called ‘live biotherapeutics’. This treatment focuses on gut bacteria to find cures for a range of diseases. I reckon it could be a while before these cures become successful revenue generators for 4D pharma.The challenging Covid-19 fightIt’s also entirely likely that some treatments may not be immediately successful, especially when it comes to Covid-19. Take for instance, the case of Remdesivir, a Covid-19 drug produced by US-based company Gilead Sciences, which hasn’t been effective in its first clinical trials. Or consider France’s Sanofi’s rheumatoid arthritis drug, which can be used in only the most affected Covid-19 patients. It was earlier believed to be a potential cure for a broader set of those infected according to a Reuters report. The key point here is that it could be a while before we’d see the fruits of 4D pharma’s labour show up in its financials. If I’m truly convinced of investing in companies that are in the trenches in the fight against coronavirus, I’d consider a different approach. I’d donate to medical research if the cause calls out to me. There’s much research underway to provide better treatments for critical illnesses. But that’s not investment, and shouldn’t be seen as such.My goal as an investor is to try my best to ensure returns. For this reason, I’m most inclined to invest in those companies that already have a proven track record.Considering FTSE 100 alternativesFTSE 100 pharma biggies are my bet for the long-term as a result. Consider the example of GlaxoSmithkline,  which has also recently been in the news for working on a coronavirus vaccine. This incidentally, is also a collaboration with Sanofi, which, as I pointed out earlier is already providing treatment in critical Covid-19 cases. It’s expected to be available only in the second half of 2021. Or AstraZeneca, which is working on a coronavirus treatment as well. Of course, it will be some time before we know the results of these endeavours. But these are already established companies. They are well-diversified and are financially sound. Moreover, they are likely to come out quite unscathed by the coronavirus crisis, and indeed the stock market crash. I think they are better investments for now.  Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations releases new resource to…

first_img Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Misinformation often spreads faster and is seen by a broader audience than legitimate news. This means that when misinformation is spread about a topic like the coronavirus disease or the U.S. 2020 Census, it can pose a serious threat to public health and social systems as individuals are more likely to be exposed to misinformation than expert advice.“This resource is designed not only to educate our audience about misinformation but also to offer concrete steps for individuals and organizations on how to identify and limit its spread,” explains Rebecca Linder Blachly, director, The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations. “While misinformation is often relatively harmless, there are targeted disinformation campaigns designed to cause harm and to shut down important conversations about significant issues our society faces. We want our audience to have the knowledge and resources to recognize and respond to these damaging campaigns.”In addition to concrete tips on how to identify and limit the spread of misinformation, this resource offers an overview of the misinformation landscape, the structure of disinformation campaigns, and the use of misinformation in elections.Support for this resource, as well as continued advocacy for policy and appropriate safeguards to reduce content that is false and designed to cause harm (also known as disinformation) are key elements of Resolution MB 016 Misinformation and Elections passed by the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church at their February 2020 meeting.Learn more about the Office of Government Relations and their work here.To sign up for the Episcopal Public Policy Network, click here.

first_imgTuesday Feb 19, 2008 Fulgence Ouedraogo dropped badly in the lineout On the weekend I watched the Top 14 meeting between Montpellier and Biarritz Olympique. The game was a hard fought and tight encounter, but just before the end young flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo suffered a bizarre injury in the lineout. Ouedraogo is Burkina Faso born and another in the line of African born flankers that turn out for France. He made his debut for his country, France, on the New Zealand tour of last year. He is a strong ball carrier and excellent at the breakdown. He’ll no doubt be a star performer for France in the future and is most definitely going to feature strongly in this years Six Nations. His Montpellier team mates didn’t do him any favours though when he got tossed up really high in the lineout, but then not brought back down to ground safely. This is a lesson in how NOT to support your lineout jumpers. Ouch.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Justice for George Smith after brutal ‘shoulder to head’ tackle is deemed legal

first_imgWednesday Sep 12, 2018 Justice for George Smith after brutal ‘shoulder to head’ tackle is deemed legal Wallaby great George Smith was red carded for what was deemed to be a dangerous shoulder to the head of Jackson Wray on Saturday, leading to an independent disciplinary hearing that took place on Tuesday evening. It was the first red card of the 2018/19 Premiership season.ADVERTISEMENT*NOTE: To log in on the new site you need to reset your password. Full details hereThe Bristol Bears flanker was clearly dismayed with referee Andrew Jackson’s decision, at the time telling the official “I’m playing rugby” after he was shown the card.Smith was deemed to have committed an act contrary to Law 9.13, but contested the charge successfully, with it dismissed by the panel. He is free to play again immediately.Panel chair Gareth Graham said: “The independent panel had the benefit of viewing this incident from a number of different angles. The footage did not clearly show whether or not there was direct contact between the player and the head of Jackson Wray.“The panel heard evidence from Wray who said that he could not remember whether there was direct contact with his chin; he said that this was a big collision which was well-timed.ADVERTISEMENT“The player explained his actions in detail and assisted the panel by demonstrating how the tackle had been carried out. He demonstrated how the position of the ball was important as to how the tackle situation developed, as it created an effect whereby it caused Wray to bounce backwards in the collision.“The panel concluded on the balance of probabilities that the initial contact did not involve any direct contact to the head of Jackson Wray. Wray was off-balance in the tackle and the force of the tackle and the effect of the ball being between the two players caused Wray’s head to ‘whip’ backwards.“On Wray’s own evidence, there was then a glancing contact to the underneath of his chin which was incidental to an otherwise legitimate tackle. In the panel’s view, and taking into account all of its rugby experience, that glancing contact did not pass the red card threshold.”It’s a big call, considering that player welfare is so heavily sanctioned these days, particularly around even the slightest bit of contact with the head.You can watch an official, longer video of the incident hereADVERTISEMENTBristol Bears head coach Pat Lam was also of the opinion that it wasn’t a red card, stating after the match: “If you put it into context of other decisions, I don’t think it’s any more than a yellow card. It’s certainly a penalty – without a doubt. A yellow card? Possibly. It needs to be clear and obvious but the number of replays they used suggested it wasn’t clear and obvious,” he said.Wray left the field for a head injury assessment but was unable to return.While the scores were tied at 18-18 when Smith was sent off, Saracens took full advantage of the extra man for a 44-23 home win.credit: premiershiprugby/rugby.com.au Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
