AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Advertising body rejects APPG calls for total gambling ad ban The UK’s Advertising Association (AA) has rejected proposals from the Gambling Related Harm All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) to ban all forms of gambling advertising, saying that such a move is not necessary at present.The APPG yesterday (15 June) published its final report on igaming harms, and concluded that a range of strict new controls should be introduced, including a total prohibition on advertising.In the report, the APPG claimed that as gambling can cause harm to individuals, and as advertising is designed to encourage people to gamble, a blanket ban would be justified.However, the AA, a trade association that represents advertisers, agencies, media and research services in the UK, said an outright ban would not be necessary and could in fact have further implications on the market.“We ask all gambling operators and their agencies to continue to adhere to the strict standards set by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the Gambling Commission,” AA chief executive Stephen Woodford said. “These rules clearly require gambling operators to be socially responsible and to protect the vulnerable, as well as under 18s.“As new evidence emerges, the ASA and Gambling Commission consider this and amend the rules if they believe the evidence supports change,” Woodford explained. “At this time, we believe a total ban is not necessary – such an action has wide implications, particularly for the support of sports across media channels, something enjoyed by millions of people right across the UK.”Last month, the ASA released new research that suggested children’s exposure to gambling advertising has declined and is falling back to 2008 levels, amid an overall drop in TV viewing among children.The ASA’s 2019 update on its monitoring of children’s exposure to advertising for age-restricted products revealed children saw, on average, 2.5 TV gambling ads per week. This sees the rate of exposure fall to 2008 and 2009 levels, when children saw 2.2 and 2.7 gambling ads on TV, respectively.In total, these ads made up less than 2% of all TV ads seen by children each week. This represented a significant decline from 2013’s peak, when children saw an average of 4.4 gambling ads per week.The AA is not the only organisation to have hit back at the APPG findings, with the Gambling Commission also blasting claims that it was “not for for purpose”, dismissing the parliamentary group’s assertion as “untrue”.Other recommendations made by the APPG included a ban on online in-play betting and a new review into the use of bonuses and incentives by gambling operators, to determine whether these contributed to harmful gambling, as well as an end to VIP schemes.

Abstract: this problem is pointed out, Ma Huateng returned the post, he said: caifutong is very bad. At that time, all the people ran to Ma Huateng reply message: the boss was really alive in this forum, in the above signature.
some people say that Tencent is very low-key, which is related to the boss, one of the founders of the company, Ma Huateng, he does not love to speak out.
Tencent culture formed a time to face the boss does not like to speak out, how to do a good job proposition and challenges.
culture in the end what is the use of Jobs’s expression: culture is not how to promote the paper, but what to believe, how to think, how to do things.
in short, the culture is a group of people inside the enterprise, in what way, what kind of thinking to do what determines the characteristics of the corporate culture.
everyone asks himself very handsome
and Tencent culture related, first have to mention is the total team, known as the "Presbyterian" by the founder, all male, sometimes we call the fourteen arhats.
immediately to the end of the year, a Christmas party. The team also came to the show. When deciding what they’re doing, they don’t say that it’s not enough for someone like Ma Huateng.
everyone is very handsome, he will not change a bad line. When making a lot of decisions, they are all talking together, and don’t say that one can decide one thing.
and this is very hard to help the boss, are working overtime dog, Tencent so big, they are still very hard to see some very thin things, many people have retired in this level.
like last night to a few boss sent a message, there is a system to change, to Ma Huateng, Liu Chiping, Liu Chiping at one point back to the Ma Huateng, four in the morning to the mail, the effort is terrible.
WeChat Zhang Xiaolong over there at 4 p.m., at the company in the morning, at 4, and leave at 5, 5. When we communicate with the WeChat team, usually can not find people during the day, only in the afternoon and evening to communicate with them, this time you have to go to work, very painful.
boss will take the initiative to participate in a number of things, more often they are very passive, this group of bosses are a group of people belonging to the house.
but when you asked them very hard to call them, they are too boring, the characteristics of Indoorsman technology.
Tencent in the beginning there when Fiyta office, Ma Huateng into the elevator will hide in a corner lift, and who does not speak, play mobile phone, elevator dead, everybody dare not speak.
sometimes we are very envy.
