Betfair escapes ASA punishment over TV advert

first_img The UK’s Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has ruled that a Betfair television advert did not breach its guidelines and the online gambling operator will not face any punishment. The ad aired in November last year, showing a man checking his mobile phone and walking down the street, before entering a ‘secret’ door into a room with a large screen that showed horse racing, filled with other people and complete with atmospheric music. A voice-over stated: “My gut says that horse is something special and my smarts say to back it on the Betfair Exchange where I get bigger returns than if I bet with one of these other bookies. That’s why I go to Betfair. Betfair, where gut instinct meets smarts.” A single complainant challenged whether the reference to ‘smarts’ in context of focusing on the excitement of betting by an aspirational figure was irresponsible because it exploited the susceptibilities of young men. Responding to the claim, Betfair said its aim was to showcase that it offers better value for money than other operators, with the background music and pace of the ad reflecting this intention. Betfair also noted no bets were placed during the ad, so there was no suggestion gambling took priority in the man’s life. Betfair denied the advert exploited the susceptibilities, aspirations, credulity, inexperience or lack of knowledge of under 18s or other vulnerable people. The operator said the main character was not an aspirational figure, and although he was dressed smartly, he had no obvious signs of wealth. Clearcast, a non-governmental organisation that pre-approves ads for British television, backed up this response, saying the reference to ‘smarts’ was only in relation to taking advantage of the good returns offered by the bookmaker. In addition, Clearcast said the voice-over took a “pragmatic and matter of fact approach”, instead of showing the man making a rash and irresponsible bet. Finally, Clearcast said that the man was portrayed as “one of many unremarkable people in a fantastical location designed to be a metaphor for the ‘community’ of customers using the app”, noting that he was not shown to be held in high regard by those around him. The ASA was satisfied with the response and opted not to uphold the complaint. In reference to the ‘secret’ door, the ASA said consumers would understand the scene as a representation of someone entering the Betfair community from the outside world. When the man was deciding to place a bet, with his gut saying that the horse is something special and his ‘smarts’ telling him to back it on the Betfair Exchange to get bigger returns, the ASA said he made a measured decision about where to bet, rather than believing his ‘smarts’ gave him a better chance of winning. However, the watchdog did take the man in the advert has being an aspirational figure, citing his confident demeanour throughout advert, which was exemplified when he was able to access the ‘secret’ door from the outside world, as well as his assertive nature with which he approached the screen in the room. Despite this, the ASA noted that because the reference to ‘smarts’ was made in the context of betting on the Betfair Exchange and how he came to this decision, it ruled that the ad did not breach its guidelines. As a result, Betfair will not face any punishment over the advert. The decision comes after the ASA and Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) this month published a revised list of standards designed to protect children and young people. The new standards prohibit online gambling ads targeting individuals who are likely to be under 18, based on data about their online interests and browsing behaviour.

K-9 Officer, Honor is honored

first_img Cantres and Honor receive special decalApopka police officer Josean Velez Cantres partnered with his K-9 Honor in February. The team also received a vehicle decal with the dog’s name and image – a special recognition of their contribution to the Apopka Police Department.“It’s been quite and experience… quite a journey with him,” said Cantres. “He’s doing very good. I’m very proud of him. I’m looking forward to working with him.”“It is easy to work with him,” Cantres continued. “We have made three apprehensions.  We are deployed at least four or five times a month.”“Our dogs are very important,” said Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley. “They allow the officer to be a little bit safer. They don’t have to go inside a house to search for an armed suspect. They also allow us to track a suspect. They don’t get away because they are on the trail.”Honor was named by a student at Apopka Memorial Middle School earlier this year.Use this link to read about that.Check out this video featuring Cantres and Honor and view that special decal: Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 You have entered an incorrect email address!

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWoodLunawoodThermowood FacadesDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineText description provided by the architects. A much-loved garden was central to our design of this side and rear extension for a Victorian mid-terrace house in the Stroud Green Conservation Area of Haringey. The project for a couple, both in property development and one a keen gardener, arranges a sequence of living spaces around the garden and an internal courtyard that gives a constant connection to greenery on the tight urban site. Oak-clad beams spanning the breadth of the expansive kitchen and dining area set up a rhythm that draws the eye out towards the garden, which is accessed through sliding glass doors. Expressing these structural elements not only offers crucial extra head height that contributes to the generosity of the space within the extension but became fundamental to our designSave this picture!© Ollie HammickSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Ollie HammickIn a unifying gesture we used the oak cladding to extend seamlessly out into a large bay window that projects over a fish pond, and up into the wells of the frameless skylights that make up more than half of the roof area. The warmth of the wood is mirrored in the neutral tones of the terrazzo that covers the kitchen island and countertops below, and in the muted green paintwork of cabinetry.Save this picture!© Ollie HammickSave this picture!© Ollie HammickA winter garden below an entirely glazed roof draws light and greenery into the heart of the home, allowing our clients to be surrounded by their plants even in inclement weather, and connects the new kitchen and dining space with the study and lounge at the front of the house. Ochre floor tiles pull the tone of the oak wood through into space, while gloss white wall tiles bounce the natural light. Automated skylights that regulate the temperature of the courtyard and an irrigation system installed in the garden give our clients peace of mind their plants are taken care of when holidaying or at their second home by the coast.Save this picture!© Ollie HammickSave this picture!© Ollie HammickIt was important the extension didn’t feel like an add-on, but rather sat in harmony with the existing house. Glass swing doors with black Crittall-style frames allow the winter garden to be combined or separated in a “broken-plan” layout that gives flexibility to the use of space, and opens up sightlines to both gardens from the entrance hall, off which a new WC and basement utility room are located. Externally the extension appears as a pair of intersecting boxes and is painted grey alongside an earlier extension topped by a plant-covered terrace to give the appearance of incremental additions. Touches of grey paintwork to the front of the house ties together the project.Save this picture!© Ollie HammickProject gallerySee allShow lessRegional Music and Dance Conservatory / Studio 1984 + Boris Bouchet ArchitectesSelected ProjectsThe Brix Restaurant & Momentum Living Showroom / StudioDuo Architecture | InteriorSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Questions and Answers

first_img Q The Part-Time Work regulations came into force in June, expecting pro rata equal treatment of part-time workers compared to full-timers. Does this affect contract, temporary and fixed-term workers?A Not as such. Contract, temporary and fixed-term workers do not count as part-timers, and the European Directive requirement for equal treatment for them has been postponed until 2003. The Part-Time Work regulations only require equal treatment for part-timers and full-timers within these categories.Q Do I have to give a reference and if so, what should be included?A There is a statutory requirement for certain financial services jobs. Otherwise, there is no obligation. Given that it must be fair and accurate, if it contains unjustified criticism or is wrong, the employee may have a claim. Likewise, if a new employer suffers as a result of relying on an unjustified glowing reference, they may have a claim.Q Our project workers must be available on-call five days a week although probably only work two to three days a week. While waiting for call-outs they are allowed to be at home or doing whatever they like. They are entitled to take up to 10 working days holiday as traditional holiday, which does not meet Working Time requirements. Since it is usual for them to know about five days in advance that they will not be working part of a day, could this be designated as holiday?A Yes, provided notice of at least twice the intended holiday period is given. These days could then count towards the 20-day entitlement for purposes of working time and weekly rests – not working time except when called out.Q Does paid holiday accrue during “additional maternity leave”?A The Working Time regulations give an entitlement to 20 days’ holiday inclusive of public holidays. If the contract continues during the additional leave period, and the presumption is that it does, logically that entitlement continues to accrue. Holiday taken during the year can be offset against it. Holiday pay for this allowance would be calculated as defined in the rules.Q Our PHI insurer will not release its medical report to either us or the employee after refusing to admit the claim. The insurer says it cannot disclose it under the Access to Medical Reports Act 1988. Is it correct?A No. Although a standard response, the report is not covered by the Act, since it is not prepared by a practitioner responsible for care of employee, nor for insurance purposes (definition requires that the employee has entered into an insurance contract and a PHI contract is normally with the employer). There is nothing to stop the insurer disclosing the report, nor any requirement to. As a tactical ploy, it would have been better if the employee had demanded the right to see the report, which they could have done if the report was subject to the Act, and then shown it to the employer.

Scottish policies have no bite

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Nearly two-thirds of private-sector companies in Scotland are equal opportunities employers in name only, it was claimed this week.A survey of 500 employers by the Commission for Racial Equality shows that only about a third can identify any practical steps taken to put their equal opportunities policy into practice.The commission found that for 61 per cent of organisations which consider themselves an equal opportunities employer, the policy consists of no more than a written – or, in some cases, unwritten – statement.The report urges employers to develop racial equality programmes. It says the employer must follow this up by demonstrating to staff a commitment to the policy.CRE deputy chair and commissioner in Scotland Dr Moussa Jogee said he hopes Scottish HR professionals will rise to the challenges outlined in the report.He added, “We look to employers to take the recommendations in this report and make a reality of their spoken commitment to equality practices.”www.eoc.org.uk Scottish policies have no biteOn 26 Sep 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more
