Overall, however, sector wide confidence has returned to 2006 and 2007 levels with 63 per cent of the UK’s top 100 firms are not worried about the next year.“As the financial services industry centred around London rebounds from the recession, it appears that those law firms based in the capital are the most positive about the future, whereas, regional firms are more concerned about the wider economy,” said Giles Murphy, head of professional practices group at Smith & Williamson. This is the 16th year that the accountancy and professional services firm has conducted the legal confidence survey. whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

Integration of Spain’s self-exclusion registers moves to next step

first_imgOnce the proposal for the integration of its self-exclusion databases is approved, the local authorities responsible for gambling will proceed to work on the technological developments and necessary regulatory changes that will allow for the integration to take place. Regions: Spain In January, Spain’s Ministry for Consumer Affairs set out its priorities for this year, with a focus on improving the strength of consumer protection in the industry. Topics: Legal & compliance Social responsibility Legal Regulation Problem gambling Responsible gambling The Sectoral Commission of Spain’s Gambling Policy Council has submitted an agreement setting out the conditions for the integration of the country’s local gambling self-exclusion registers to the country’s Plenary Council. The process will involve moving player data from locally maintained registers into the General Self-Exclusion Register (RGIAJ), which will be administrated by the nation’s central gambling regulator, the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ). In addition to the registers’ integration, the Ministry of Consumer Affairs has also outlined two other regulatory projects; the draft royal decree on safer gambling environments, and the regulatory basis for the granting of subsidies in order to carry out research related to the prevention of problem gambling. Responsible gambling The plan was first agreed in September 2020 at a meeting of the national Gambling Policy Council, chaired by Minister of Consumer Affairs Alberto Garzón. 18th June 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Integration of Spain’s self-exclusion registers moves to next step This marks the next step in Spain’s plan to bring together its self-exclusion registers, which are currently maintained separately in each of its autonomous communities.

Rugby’s Greatest: Philippe Sella

first_img Thierry Dusautoir won the IRB Player of the… Balance and power: Philippe Sella mesmerised opponents the world over during the Eighties and Nineties Rugby’s Greatest: Agustin Pichot Collapse Rugby’s Greatest: Thierry Dusautoir Rugby’s Greatest: Thierry Dusautoir LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rugby’s Greatest: Philippe SellaFor becoming the first player to win 100 Test caps, Philippe Sella is guaranteed a place in rugby’s hall of fame. The gallery of leading French threequarters is adorned by the portraits of artists who were touched by genius, but when he retired as the game’s most-capped player in 1995 he had 111 caps and was universally appreciated as one of rugby’s old masters.Sella had entered the French side in the autumn of 1982, playing on the wing after gaining the unusual distinction of winning school, youth and student honours.As a stripling with a zest for total rugby, he was a fast and elusive runner. But the natural toughness and easy fitness that went with his rural Garonne upbringing perfectly equipped him for a role in the French XV at centre, a position he quickly made his own.The quality that marked Sella out among the panoply of brilliant French threequarters was the range of his skills. His flair for attacking rugby placed him on the same pedestal as the Boniface brothers, Jo Maso, Didier Codorniou and Denis Charvet. Agustin Pichot was Argentina’s greatest scrum-half, and to… When he retired in 1994 as the world’s best all-round centre of the decade, he left a huge vacuum in les Bleus back-line. One that, arguably, the French have never managed to fill.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. But the extra dimension to his game that his illustrious predecessors lacked was stoical defence. By his own admission Sella relished making a clattering tackle as much as any of the 30 Test tries he scored.In Brothers in Arms, Patrick Estève recalls: “In the 1984 game against England, [John] Carleton did a scissors with their centre and he came down Sella’s channel. He just smashed him. I stood there and watched in awe at his timing, technique and power.”Yet Sella was a lethal finisher, too, and his bagful of tries included one in each Five Nations match in 1986, when he became only the fourth player in the championship’s history to perform the feat, and a lung-bursting 65-metre score against England at Twickenham in 1987 that bore all the hallmarks of his class.

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture unveiled a new webpage featuring weekly lesson plans dedicated to helping students in kindergarten through fifth grade learn where their food comes from while helping parents and teachers keep children engaged.“We are thrilled to be launching this weekly series of virtual learning tools for parents, teachers and students,” AFBFA Executive Director Daniel Meloy said. “Providing engaging lesson plans and exciting content helps support our goal at the Foundation for Agriculture to provide an ‘easy button’ for at-home learning during this time so many of us are juggling priorities while trying to ensure kids enjoy virtual learning.”The resource page contains free weekly activities, which focus around a central theme and can be done independently of one another. The first lesson, which is live now, is titled “Who is a farmer?” and includes several videos, an interactive online game and a selection of suggested discussion questions.“Learning about agriculture is a fun way to help kids to think differently about traditional math and science with lessons that creatively incorporate both of those subjects, tying them together perfectly with the wonders of today’s agriculture,” Meloy said.Other educational resources offered by AFBFA include a series of accurate and engaging agriculture books published through Feeding Minds Press, Ag Mags focused on various agriculture topics, full-length lesson plans and more.Visit the Foundation for Agriculture At Home Learning page.
