Regions: UK & Ireland Coral cleared over World Cup advertising complaint AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Email Address The UK Advertising Standard Agency (ASA) has cleared Coral of any wrongdoing over a betting advert that the Campaign for Fairer Gambling challenged for being misleading.The campaign group flagged up an advert published in the Racing Post on June 16, 2018, featuring a ‘price boost’ on the Fifa World Cup football match between Argentina and Iceland on the same day.In the ad, Coral offered odds of Lionel Messi (pictured) to score two or more goals at a price of 5/1, with the words ‘WAS 3/1’ struck through underneath. Additional text said punters were limited to a maximum bet of £10 (€11/$13) online and via mobile for a limited time only.The Campaign for Fairer Gambling contacted the ASA, questioning whether both the term ‘price boost’ and the crossed out price of 3/1 were misleading.Responding to the complaint, Coral said the odds of 3/1 was the standard price when the promotion was introduced. The bookmaker admitted that this price may have fluctuated due to factors such as betting patterns and team news.Coral noted that the ad had to be filed with the newspaper in advance and this price may have changed upon publishing. The ad featured the disclaimer: “guide price only, prices subject to fluctuation”.The odds on the same bet outside of the offer dipped to 14/5 briefly on June 14 before returning to 3/1, while the price also shortened to 13/5 on the day before the game. The offer remained in place until kick-off, when it was replaced with an in-play market that saw the odds fluctuate throughout he match.Coral said that the standard priced market moved in a way that made the price boost more advantageous to customers who placed a bet at the offer price.The ASA ruled that consumers would generally be aware that such odds are subject to change. The regulator said text in the ad referring to the maximum bet of £10 and only being available online and mobile reinforced this statement.The ASA also said consumers would expect the 3/1 price to have been the main standard market price in the period before the ad was published. It also said consumers would expect this standard price to apply for bets placed outside of the Coral app or website during the boost period.In addition, the ASA said Coral provided information that showed significantly more bets were placed at the boosted price of 5/1 than at 3/1. The regulator considered the brief fluctuations in the market did not alter the status of 3 /1 as the standard market price in the period before the ad appeared.Stating that those who did not use the Coral website or app during the boosted period to place a bet did so at the standard market rate, the ASA ruled that it is unlikely the price boost text and 3/1 odds were unlikely to mislead.The ASA concluded that as Coral did not breach any CAP Code rules, it will not take any further action against the bookmaker.Image: Oleg Bkhambri (Voltmetro) Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Marketing & affiliates Complaint by the Campaign for Fairer Gambling rejected by UK advertising watchdog 9th January 2019 | By contenteditor

On one page it reports that “We hope to have all donations processed by the end of February.” On another page it says “We hope to have all donations processed by the middle of March.” It explains that “the sheer scale of the response has led to delays in processing a small proportion of donations.” It asks donors to “please bear with us” if donatons do not appear on their bank or credit card statement. Advertisement Sadly, such an approach could damage the beneficial effects on charitable giving that some are anticipating after the massive public support for the tsunami appeal. If even the umbrella body can’t process credit/debit card donations for two months or more after they were received, especially when the gifts were for an emergency appeal, then the public would be entitled to wonder just how effective fundraising charities are.

Chief meteorologist Ryan Martin says for northern Indiana which received most of the Monday rainfall, planting isn’t likely to resume before more rain Friday.“I think that 2 days may not quite be enough,” he said. “I’ve talked to some guys who ended up with three tenths, four tenths. In those areas maybe we can get an inkling maybe late Thursday afternoon to maybe try it in a few spots. But any place that got half an inch or more, probably this will not be a big enough window. In the southern part of the state where it was just a thunderstorm here or there and then most of the rest of the action was done, even on Tuesday it wasn’t doing anything, there I think we’ve got the planting window that stays open and we can go right along until the action comes up from the south and west.”Martin says sunshine the next two days could actually serve to increase the risk of thunderstorms. He forecasts rain in the state for Friday through Monday and maybe even beginning as early as Thursday night.“In that window there I still think we can pick up another half to 2 inches, bringing the total for this entire event going back into Monday to 1-3 inches when all is said and done. If you look at a maximum evaporation rate of about a quarter inch a day, we’re going to have to put together several days in a row to even start to take out some of what has fallen. That being said, starting next Tuesday to Wednesday, in there somewhere we should kick off a dry period after this event is done. I think that goes all the way through the following Monday the 18th.”The next rain system then comes in on May 19th and stretches 2 or 3 days. But during the 6 days of drying some cooler than normal temperatures could slow the drying process.“But still,” Martin says, “I would bet toward the end of that drying window we can probably get back at it and get a least of couple of days of field work done, especially in areas that are in the lower end of that 1-3 inch range that we’re talking about.”[acm-tag id=”post_column”] Soybean ZSN21 (JUL 21) 1508.50 -35.50 Lean Hogs HEM21 (JUN 21) 122.68 0.22 Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter All quotes are delayed snapshots Minor Changes in June WASDE Report

He then capped his career by pitching three outstanding playoff games in the tough CIF Division III bracket including two no hitters against Bishop Montgomery and St. Paul, two great hitting teams.His stellar baseball career continued at San Diego State after Derby was personally recruited to pitch for the Aztecs by the late baseball great and head coach Tony Gwinn.Derby started his Aztec career by striking out college great Kris Bryant (now with the Chicago Cubs) with the bases loaded, and then ended his collegiate career going head-to-head with Dillon Tate (first round draft pick for The Texas Rangers) in the first game of the NCAA Baseball Regionals. The Aztecs won three conference championships in a row riding on Derby’s arm.In June 2015, Bubba was drafted in the 6th round of the MLB Draft to play professionally for the Oakland Athletics. Darby was recently traded to the Milwaukee Brewers.Former Lancer Baseball Head Coach, Harry Agajanian, said, “Bubba, you have brought attention and class to La Salle and to Lancer Baseball. I can speak for the entire baseball program and the athletic department when I say that it has been a joy and a privilege to watch you perform and mature through your high school years and beyond. To commemorate your accomplishments as a student of the game, your jersey and number 11 will be retired and displayed on our outfield fence knowing that you will forever be regarded as a great Lancer.”La Salle High School, 3880 East Sierra Madre Blvd., Pasadena, (626) 351-8951 or visit www.lasallehs.org.
