Lottery solutions provider Spinola Gaming is offering immediate support to lottery operators looking to mitigate the shut down of retail lottery sales as a result of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic by powering the rapid launch of digital offerings.Governments around the world have introduced measures to slow the spread of the virus, with country-wide lockdowns temporarily closing gambling venues and outlets selling lottery products. This has already prompted Spain’s Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado (SELAE) to suspend ticket sales and lottery draws from 16 March.Spinola said it can support operators affected by the measures by helping them to set up an online platform, that can both players engaged by offering high value jackpots.“These unprecedented times have highlighted how fragile certain business models can be, as more and more countries enforce lockdowns making traditional physical lottery ticket purchase no longer an option for players,” Spinola chief executive Ade Repcenko explained.“The need for national lottery operators to make the shift and be available online in order to continue to reach their players is imperative.“We are offering a way to quickly convert to an online operation, in order to keep players engaged and to continue to provide draws to their players, and most importantly continue to support the good causes that land-based charity lotteries contribute towards.”Spinola also said it can work with existing online operators in the casino and sportsbook sectors to introduce new games and help keep players engaged during the shutdown of sports events around the world. Football’s English Premier League and the UEFA European Championship are among the major events to have been affected by Covid-19.“We are ready and able to provide a quick and reliable solution that can immediately address the current unfortunate situation facing many in the industry,” Repcenko said.The pledge comes after Spinola this week also announced a new initiative to help governments, state-run operators and public/private partnerships (PPP) across emerging markets to launch their lotteries online.Spinola said that it would seek out partnerships with businesses in Latin America, Asia, Africa and the South Pacific that have traditionally operated in a paper environment.

After all, cash is generally considered to be a safer asset than stocks. But this could be a big mistake. I’d buy FTSE 100 dividend shares for income instead. FTSE 100 dividend sharesThe interest rates available on Cash ISAs have been steadily declining for the past 10 years. This trend has only accelerated in 2020. The best instant access Cash ISA interest rate on the market at the moment is just 1%. That’s down from around 1.3% of the end of last year. 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…With this being the case, while investors might be drawn to Cash ISAs after the recent stock market crash, if it’s income you’re after, FTSE 100 dividend shares may be a much better option. Buying FTSE 100 dividend shares after the recent stock market crash might seem like a risky prospect. However, over the past few decades, the index has encountered several severe sell-offs. On every occasion, it has staged a healthy recovery. Sometimes it’s taken several years, but it always came back. There’s no reason to believe the situation will be any different this time.What’s more, while many FTSE 100 dividend stocks have cut their dividends recently, the index still supports an average yield significantly above the best Cash ISA rate. At the time of writing, the FTSE 100’s dividend yield stands at just over 4%. Income investingIt’s relatively straightforward to achieve this level of income. All you need to do is buy a low-cost FTSE 100 tracker fund. The added bonus of using this method to invest in FTSE 100 dividend stocks is diversification. Buying a tracker fund gives you diversification across many sectors, industries and geographies. Another option is to buy FTSE 100 dividend stocks individually. This process can be a bit more time consuming than buying a tracker fund. But it could be worth the extra effort. The best income stocks tend to be defensive companies. These organisations may be impacted less by economic trends and consumer spending patterns. They could also offer more in the way of income than the FTSE 100 as a whole.British American Tobacco, for example, recently reported that the coronavirus crisis has hardly impacted its operations. The stock offers a dividend yield of more than 6%, at the time of writing. Building a diversified portfolio is especially important when picking individual stocks. These groups might offer the potential for a higher level of income. By spreading your money across different companies, the risk of making a bad investment falls. As such, it may be best to ensure no single company makes up more than 5% of the portfolio. This approach should help you generate a sustainable passive income stream over the long run. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The aromatic resin, used to produce incense, comes from Boswellia, a genus of trees and shrubs from the Horn of Africa, Arabian Peninsula and India. According to a report in a sustainability journal, there is a danger frankincense supplies will collapse after researchers found the Boswellia trees are being destroyed by cattle farming, drought and conflict.Read the full article here.

What is it about yawning?

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here By Christine Calder, Assistant Clinical Professor of Behavior, College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University and first published on theconversation.com.You know the feeling. It’s impossible to resist. You just need to yawn.A yawn consists of an extended gaping of the mouth followed by a more rapid closure. In mammals and birds, a long intake of breath and shorter exhale follows the gaping of the mouth, but in other species such as fish, amphibians, and snakes there is no intake of breath.But what’s behind a yawn, why does it occur?In the past, people have had many hypotheses. As far back as 400 B.C., Hippocrates thought yawning removed bad air from the lungs before a fever. In the 17th and 18th century, doctors believed yawning increased oxygen in the blood, blood pressure, heart rate and blood flow itself. More recently, consensus moved toward the idea that yawning cools down the brain, so when ambient conditions and temperature of the brain itself increase, yawning episodes increase.Despite all these theories, the truth is that scientists do not know the true biological function of a yawn.What we do know is that yawning occurs in just about every species. It happens when an animal is tired. It can be used as a threat display in some species. Yawning can occur during times of social conflict and stress, something researchers call a displacement behavior.And that wide-open mouth can be contagious, especially in social species such as humans, chimpanzees, bonobos, macaques, and wolves.Watching someone yawn – heck, even reading about yawns – can lead you to yawn yourself. Why?Research on humans tell us that people who are more empathetic tend to be more susceptible to contagious yawning. When you see someone else yawn, the networks in your brain responsible for empathy and social skills are activated.Yawning happens in many animal species – and seems to pass from one to another. Robert Gramner on Unsplash, CC BYIs yawning contagious for dogs, too? In 2011, U.K. biologists tested for contagious yawning between people and man’s best friend. Although 5 of the 19 dogs they studied did yawn in response to an unfamiliar person’s yawn, the researchers couldn’t prove the yawns were contagious.In 2013, cognitive and behavioral scientists at the University of Tokyo once again tested contagious yawning in canines while controlling for stress. This time the researchers found that dogs were more likely to yawn in response to a familiar person. They concluded that dogs can “catch” a yawn from humans and that yawning is a social rather than a stress-based behavior.In 2014, University of Nebraska psychologists looked at contagious yawning in shelter dogs. They found that some dogs that yawned when exposed to human yawning had elevated cortisol levels – a proxy for stress. Levels of the cortisol stress hormone did not rise in dogs that didn’t yawn in response to a human yawn. This finding suggests some dogs find human yawning stressful and others do not. More research is needed to evaluate this aspect of the human-dog relationship.So the jury’s still out on the true why of yawning. But when it comes to inter-species yawning, you can collect your own anecdotal data. Try an experiment at home: Yawn and see if your pet yawns back.

Reporters Without Borders condemns new attacks against the independent press ahead of elections

first_img Receive email alerts RSF_en BelarusEurope – Central Asia to go further BelarusEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders has protested after the information minister ordered a three-month closure of the independent weekly Novaya Gazeta Smorgoni in Smorgon, western Belarus.Moreover in the run-up to legislative elections several large stores in Minsk have been refusing to sell the independent press since the beginning of the week.”It is unacceptable for the independent media to be silenced on the eve of elections that are of major importance to the country” said Reporters Without Borders in a letter to information minister, Vladimir Rusakevich. “Everything points to the fact that Novaya Gazeta Smorgoni is a victim of official abuse. We call on you to reconsider your decision to suspend this newspaper and to abstain from similar steps against other media throughout the pre-election period,” the international press freedom organisation added.The information minister, who suspended the paper on 16 August, has accused the founder of de Novaya Gazeta Smorgoni, Ramuald Ulan of failing to comply with registration procedure.Ulan, as well as several other independent specialists, has contested the legal basis for the ruling. They have pointed up contradictions in the media law in connection with the possibility of being both sole proprietor and editor of a newspaper.Novaya Gazeta Smorgoni has come under official pressure for several years. In the run-up to the local elections in 2003, the Grodno regional commercial court decided to suspend Ulan’s trading licence, thus closing the newspaper.The weekly has been carrying regular news about independent candidates for the Smorgon region ahead of the October 2004 legislative elections.Elsewhere, the three major independent newspapers such as Belorussky Rynok, Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta (BDG), Belorusskaya Gazeta and Narodnaya Volya, said on 23 August that seven major stores in Minsk have stopped selling their papers without any advance notice.Viktor Bondarenko, editor of Belorusskaya Gazeta, and his BDG colleagues, quoted by the Belarus Association of Journalists (BAJ), said the local authorities had apparently “recommended” to the owners of the major stores that they should not sell the newspapers in the pre-election period. According to BDG, advertisers had reportedly come under similar pressure.
