Strategy As a result, Clarion Gaming is looking to add new experiences, new content and new features to connect with the needs of the market. ICE Connect will run from 21 to 25 June, focused on Europe, then with a North American focus between 28 June and 2 July. A repeat of this schedule will then follow in the autumn. Barton (pictured below left) explained that iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam had always been popular in the industry. The last edition, held over 16 to 19 July 2019, achieved a satisfaction rating of +38, which she said put the shows “in the Premier Leagues of B2B events”. Tags: ICE London iGB Affiliate London iGB Live! iGB Affiliate Amsterdam 15th February 2021 | By Robin Harrison One of the tentpoles of this digital strategy will be ICE Connect, an invitation-only executive summit programme. This will see algorithms employed to scientifically match qualified, senior level decision-makers who have both buying power and immediate requirements with industry leading solution providers. Naomi Barton The enquires have come from a mix of stakeholders, she revealed, including those that would normally associate more closely with ICE London. “The level of interest measured by traffic to igblive.com, and more significantly by the number of enquiries that are being made directly to the sales team, underlines the strategic importance of iGB Live!,” Barton said. “Our event will be the first established in-person show of 2021 for our industry and has all of the credentials to kick-start the beginning of the return to normal or to redefine what normal is and its implications for consumers and the industry.” Topics: Casino & games Esports Legal & compliance Lottery Marketing & affiliates People Social responsibility Sports betting Strategy Tech & innovation Marketing Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter iGB Live! enquiries at a record high as industry targets Amsterdam in September Email Address The unprecedented spike in interest has come in the wake of last week’s announcement confirming the postponement of the summer editions of the co-located ICE London and iGB Affiliate London shows, which will now take place in February 2022. “The safety and security of the iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate community is at the top of our agenda and the owners of the RAI have put in place the very best in-venue Covid protocols and cleaning standards to ensure visitor safety, as has the mayor and the city of Amsterdam,” said Barton. Furthermore, iGB Live! 2021 will be run with the highest possible safety and security standards in place. Regions: Western Europe Netherlands This, Barton said, highlights a desire across the industry to engage with the market in 2021, and a growing desire from the land-based sector to explore opportunities to diversify their offerings by moving online.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS At last! Man of the Match Stuart Hogg jumps for joy after Scotland finally ended their French hoodoo Scotland ended two of international rugby’s most unenviable streaks: this victory was their first home win in the Six Nations in eight attempts, and their first defeat of France since beating them a decade ago – 11 meetings ago. Vern Cotter’s men climb to third on the back of back-to-back wins, while the French slip to fourth.England have won the title with a week to spare – their first since 2011 and the first time a team has bagged the Six Nations swag before the final day. But Paris next weekend will be no cakewalk against a French team who continue to play with great ambition.WHAT’S HOT…Stuart Hogg – The Glasgow full-back is surely the best 15 in the tournament. He took his 33rd-minute try wonderfully, using nifty footwork, and his turnover hit led to the penalty from which Duncan Taylor scored soon after.Then Hogg slotted a goal from his own half to take Scotland three scores clear on 47 minutes, and his magical tip-on gave Tim Visser the room to score Scotland’s third try with 14 minutes remaining. Throw in his booming line kicking and it was a mightily impressive showing from the Man of the Match.Diving school: Tim Visser scores in the 66th minute from Hogg’s terrific tip-on (Pic: Getty Images)Other shout-outs go to WP Nel for his anchor role at the scrum, the ever-excellent John Hardie and the probing Peter Horne, who was summoned from the bench with indecent haste after the concussion suffered by Finn Russell.For France, captain Giulhem Guirado was again to the fore and in scoring he became the first France hooker to bag two tries in a championship. Maxime Machenaud, unfairly neglected under the previous regime, gave the match a great tempo with his tap-and-goes. It was infectious because Taylor’s score came from a tap penalty on his own 10m line!Ambition – France set their stall out from the off, with Virimi Vakatawa and Wesley Fofana offloading on the right flank to give Guirado his try in the fourth minute.First blood: Hooker Guilhem Guirado breaks clear of Josh Strauss to score in the early moments (Pic: Getty)Whatever you may say about Guy Noves, he’s demanding a high-risk attacking game, with offloads in all areas, that is exciting to watch. Had they not lost their best ball-carrier Louis Picamoles to injury this year, the French might still have been fighting for the title.Referee empathy – it took courage to ignore the TMO’s highlighting of a slight tug by Greig Laidlaw on Wenceslas Lauret in the build-up to Taylor’s try. But Glen Jackson was spot on. It was innocuous and had no bearing on the play. Play on!WHAT’S NOT…Scrum tedium – We wouldn’t want to suggest this match was in any way exceptional, because boring drawn-out scrums are now part and parcel of a lot of elite-level matches in the northern hemisphere. But the point must be made again and again – too much time is being frittered away by slow scrum engagements and repeated resets.Jackson was quite passive in his officiating of this area, which didn’t help matters. We counted eight penalties or free-kicks from scrums and something has to change. Justin Marshall and Thomas Castaignede are two ex-pros who advocate reducing the potential for a three-point sanction – is that the answer?French handling – If we are to praise the French for their adventure, we need also to admonish them for their execution. There were simply too many handling errors, some induced by poor delivery from the passer. Why can’t the country that gave us Blanco and Sella and Castaignede move the ball efficiently from one side of the pitch to the other?Gael force: Centre Gael Fickou’s third Test try kept France in touch heading into half-time (Pic: Getty)However, you sense that, on a day when France play with that joie de vivre and the passes stick, someone somewhere is going to be in for a hiding. England need to be on their guard next weekend in a stadium where their last three Six Nations matches have been decided by just two points.STATISTICS TAGS: Highlight What’s hot and what’s not from Scotland’s Six Nations clash with France at Murrayfield For the latest Rugby World subscription offers, click here.Tartan titans: Hogg and Laidlaw show what it means to sample Six Nations success on their own turf 10 – The number of tackles made by John Hardie and Yoann Maestri, joint top in the match1 – France only had one scrum put-in!

The court also ordered Dominican authorities to audit birth records back to June 1929 to determine who no longer qualifies for citizenship, according to the New York Times.Saying that the court decision could prompt a “potential large-scale tragedy,” council’s resolution urges the church’s Office of Government Relations to encourage the United States and the church’s ecumenical and interreligious partners to advocate for such Dominicans. It encouraged that office’s Episcopal Public Policy Network to educate and alert the members of the church to the issue, and encourage advocacy within their churches and communities.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori also was encouraged to lead a fact-finding delegation to the Dominican Republic together with ecumenical and interreligious partners, and report to council.Diocese of the Dominican Republic Bishop Julio Holguín told ENS shortly after the ruling that “the constitutional court has made a big mistake with that ruling,” pointing out that many of those affected were descendants of immigrants, most of whom came to the Dominican Republic, by agreement between the two governments – Dominican and Haitian – to work primarily cutting sugarcane.Human trafficking work to be coordinatedCouncil voted to reaffirm the 77th General Convention’s commitment to fighting human trafficking as expressed in Resolution D-042. Lelanda Lee, chair of the council’s Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking, said it had become obvious to that committee that the work needed on the issue is so complex that a coordinating committee was needed.The resolution directed the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies to appoint the committee by March 31 “in order to assure the effective, thorough, and collaborative implementation of the policies adopted by the 77th General Convention.”Lee said the resolution fits with what the committee feels is its role of “giving hope and giving leadership for those who are not at the table.”‘Pejorative or disparaging team names’In another Joint Standing Committee on Advocacy and Networking-sponsored resolution, the council joined what has become a nationwide effort that has reached to the White House to convince the National Football League’s Washington Redskins team to change its name.The resolution decries the use of “pejorative or disparaging team names,” reminding the church of its commitment to the Baptismal Covenant, which vows to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being. The members anchored their call to end the use of such names in the church’s multi-year efforts to fight racism.The resolution calls on athletic organizations at all levels to follow the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s policy to penalize collegiate athletic programs that use pejorative or disparaging team names, images, mascots, and behaviors. The members also asked local dioceses and churches to address the issue of pejorative or disparaging team names if their local schools and community sports teams use such names.Also, the resolution urges the NFL to “not to allow a major football event like the Super Bowl to occur in Washington, D.C.”Council member Terry Star, a Lakota from North Dakota, thanked council for noticing his concern about such names via his tweets.“I’ve been fighting with this issue since I was in high school 22 years ago,” he said.Plan for Province IX sustainabilityCouncil agreed to an 18-year effort that a report calls “a bold plan with a worthy goal of establishing self-sufficient sustainable models of mission and ministry for the dioceses of Province IX.”Martha Gardner, chair of council’s Joint Standing Committee on World Mission, said that the issue of sustainability “has been emerging over a number of years.”The churchwide staff’s Second Mark of Mission project team recommended the plan to council with the suggestion that it concentrate on those dioceses already furthest along in their efforts to move out of dependence of the church’s historical block grants model. The Diocese of Dominican Republic, with a self-stated goal of achieving self-sufficiency by 2015, will be the initial focus, followed by the Diocese of Honduras and then Colombia.As each diocese attains self-sufficiency from the block grant program, they will in turn commit to working with the other dioceses to help them achieve the same goal.“The overall commitment of block grant dollars from the churchwide budget would be maintained in order to provide revenue for this development work, and for the next diocese in line to deeply engage in the focused work of self-sufficiency and sustainability,” the team said in its report.The team also said such a long-term project will require “commitment, trust, and flexibility” as “the landscape and realities may adjust and change over time,” requiring some sort of covenant agreement which may need periodic renegotiation.In other business, the council:* Gave its consent to the Joint Standing Committee on Planning & Arrangement’s selection of Austin in the Diocese of Texas as the site for the 79th General Convention in 2018.The selection must also be approved by the 78th meeting of convention in Salt Lake City in 2015.The Rev. Canon Michael Barlowe, the church’s executive officer, addressed members’ questions about placing the convention in a diocese that has historically been among those giving a small amount of their income to the churchwide budget. He said that prior to including the diocese on the list of possible sites, he and the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies talked with Bishop Andy Doyle and learned of his “personal commitment … in leading the Diocese of Texas towards full participation in the life of The Episcopal Church included the attendant financial responsibilities and other responsibilities.”That commitment, he said, was reiterated during meetings between the site selection group and the diocesan leadership. “We are satisfied that we had explored this in some detail,” Barlowe said, adding that the Standing Committee is “delighted” in the “trajectory” of participation that was explained to them.The Episcopal Church asks dioceses to contribute 19 percent of their income annually to the churchwide budget. Each year’s annual giving in the three-year budget is based on a diocese’s income two years earlier, minus $120,000.In 2013, Texas has pledged 6.7 percent ($463,959 of its $7,094,500 of income), according to information here, due to be approved this weekend, shows a 2014 pledge of $755,338.The last time General Convention met in a Province VII diocese is 1970, which is a longer hiatus than for any other province, Barlowe said.More information on the selection is here.* Authorized spending up to $95,000 for additional professional expertise to assist in the review and analysis of future options related to the Episcopal Church Center in New York. The decision came after the council met in executive session to hear a report from its subcommittee that is exploring the issue.General Convention Resolution D016, passed in July 2012, said “it is the will of this convention to move the church center headquarters” away from that building.A year ago, council received a report that said “God’s mission of reconciliation is best furthered” by remaining at 815 Second Ave. in Manhattan and consolidating DFMS operations at the church center to free up even more space to rent to outside tenants than the 3.5 floors that were then leased out. This choice would be “in the organization’s best interests financially, both in terms of budget effect and for long-term investment purposes,” according to the report.The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, the church’s corporate entity, currently rents 2.5 floors to the Ad Council, one floor to Permanent Mission of Haiti to the United Nations and one floor to the Lyceum Kennedy International School. The church center has nine floors of office space.The study that produced the report began in February 2012, five months before General Convention met, when council’s Finances for Mission committee asked DFMS management to study the possible relocation of the church center. It was conducted by the 10-person Executive Oversight Group.* Agreed to market a parking lot in Austin, Texas, that was purchased in 2009 as a potential site for relocating the Archives of the Episcopal Church. The archives is now located on the campus of the Seminary of the Southwest, also in Austin. Revenue from the parking lot operation has covered the interest on the loan and has allowed for repayment of some of the principal. The property is “no longer likely to be in the best financial interest of the Society,” but has appreciated in value since purchase, according to the resolution’s explanation.Council passed a related resolution calling for a working group to renew efforts to find a suitable location for the Archives.Summaries of each resolution that council passed at the meeting are here.Some council members tweeted from the meeting using #ExCoun.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). The council is composed of 38 members, 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the Presiding Bishop and the President of the House of Deputies.– The Rev.
