GambleAware launches new analysis of problem gambling treatment

first_imgRunning at the same time as the annual survey, GambleAware said the aim is to compare survey responses to see how certain methodologies provide different estimates. GambleAware said the survey will cover findings by key demographics such as age, gender, ethnicity and geography, allowing it to highlight any key differences amongst certain groups. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter GambleAware launches new analysis of problem gambling treatment The study, conducted by Leeds Beckett University, found the multi-level nature funded treatment system meant not all components have a direct connection with one another. Regions: UK & Ireland This, GambleAware, said will allow for a greater understanding of how to most effectively estimate the shape and size of gambling harms across Britain, as well as present a clearer view of the barriers and demand for treatment. Tags: GambleAware Results of the surveys are due to be released in spring next year. Alongside the Annual GB Treatment and Support Demand Survey, GambleAware has also commissioned Yonda to run an additional quota survey, as well as both NatCen and Kantar to run a random probability survey. The survey, which will be conducted by YouGov, will run concurrently with three other surveys, each using identical questions on gambling behaviour, harms, and barriers and facilitators to accessing treatment and support.center_img 24th November 2020 | By Robert Fletcher Responsible gambling The new research comes after GambleAware last month revealed the multi-level setup of its treatment and support system has led to significant knowledge gaps, while its organic growth has resulted in the lack of a defined strategy. Topics: Social responsibility Responsible gambling The survey will take a sample of 18,000 respondents, up from 12,000 last year, in order to allow for a better comparison of differences between geographical areas at a smaller scale and to include a larger sample of ethnic minority communities. In addition, as the system structure has grown organically, rather than being purposefully designed through a defined strategy, this impacted its overall functioning, and has made collaboration between each component more difficult.

Forget buy-to-let. I’d make money from property this way!

Paul Summers | Sunday, 23rd February, 2020 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Having some exposure to property is often recommended for those looking to build a suitably diversified portfolio. The idea is that bricks and mortar will pick up the slack when other assets aren’t doing so well. Of course, many people will simply consider this element of their wealth to be covered by the house they live in, which they will own outright once the mortgage is wiped. Others will want to take things further.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…Today, I’m looking at a relatively fuss-free way of making extra cash from property.  Before doing so, however, it’s worth mentioning why this solution isn’t buy-to-let.Whole lotta hassleThere are, of course, attractions to becoming a landlord. Rent received will cover (or go some way towards covering) the mortgage payments on the property that’s being let.The fact that house prices gradually rise over time, albeit through a few inevitable market wobbles, also means the owner could/should benefit handsomely when they come to sell. Aside from this, tangible assets like an extra house or flat give some people peace of mind compared to numbers on a screen.That said, the idea that becoming a landlord as an easy route to riches is most definitely flawed. As well as ongoing maintenance, tax considerations and legal hoops-a-plenty, those wanting to let a property need to be prepared for periods in which they may struggle to find a tenant. Owners must also have to contend with troublesome renters who don’t treat the flat or house with quite as much care as they would like.Should the life of a landlord not be what you expected, it’s worth remembering that selling any property can also take a lot longer than you think. So, what’s the alternative? Here at the Fool UK, we think there’s a far less stressful way of getting exposure to this asset class beyond your own home. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) are quoted companies that own and manage all sorts of commercial and residential property. Through buying into these companies, investors get a massive slice (usually a minimum of 90%) of the trust’s rental income.Unlike the underlying properties, REITs are also liquid in that you can buy and sell them just like ordinary shares. A further benefit is that they allow investors to focus on niche areas of the market. If you think the demand for warehouses from companies like Amazon will continue growing, for example, then Tritax Big Box — which rents out such spaces — may be worth investigating further. It’s set to generate a yield of 4.8% for investors this year, based on the current share price.If you suspect our tendency to hoard stuff isn’t going to disappear anytime soon, self-storage players Big Yellow or Safestore — yielding 2.8% and 2.2% respectively — could also be ideal additions to your portfolio. For those who prefer the passive approach, US giant iShares offers the UK Property UCITS ETF. For an ongoing charge of 0.4%, you can track the performance of an index composed purely of REITS and UK-listed real estate companies, the yield from which is currently 3.3%. Although nothing can be guaranteed — REITs have a tendency to be volatile during housing/general market downturns — these options should, in my opinion, be far more appealing to busy private investors.

FTSE 100 stocks have crashed 15% this year. Here are 3 reasons why I’d buy them today

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Peter Stephens has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Peter Stephens | Monday, 2nd March, 2020 The FTSE 100’s performance over recent weeks has been hugely disappointing. The index has fallen by up to 15% from its 2020 starting price, experiencing its third worst week since inception during that time.Although coronavirus and political risks in the US and Europe could weigh on markets over the short run, in the long term now may prove to be a buying opportunity.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…Many stocks appear to be undervalued, the index has a track record of recovery and the return prospects available elsewhere appear to be slim. As such, now could be the right time to buy a wide range of large-cap shares.ValuationsThe FTSE 100 currently yields around 5%. That’s its highest since the financial crisis, significantly higher than its average yield since inception. This suggests the index offers good value for money at the present time, and that many of its members have wide margins of safety.Certainly, the near-term prospects for many FTSE 100 shares are uncertain. A slowdown in the performance of the world economy now seems inevitable following the spread of coronavirus, and may mean the financial prospects for international companies deteriorate to some degree in the short run.However, in many cases, those risks seem to have been priced in to valuations by investors who have become increasingly nervous about the outlook for the world economy. New investors may, therefore, be able to buy FTSE 100 shares while they trade at a significant discount to their intrinsic values in many cases.Recovery potentialIt may not be possible at the present time to accurately gauge when the FTSE 100 will recover. It could, for example, experience a tough 2020 following over a decade of growth.However, its track record shows it has always recovered from corrections and bear markets to post new record highs. Sometimes this process of recovery has taken as little as a few months, while in other cases it has taken a few years. For long-term investors, though, the fact the FTSE 100 has always posted a successful turnaround should provide confidence that the index can do likewise following the outbreak of coronavirus.Relative appealInvestors have few attractive options outside of the stock market at present. The returns on cash and bonds are exceptionally low in many cases, while tax changes and high house prices mean that buy-to-let investments have become less appealing over recent years.As such, on a relative basis, shares appear to be highly attractive at the present time. They may not post a strong recovery in the short run, and there may even be more pain ahead for investors. But over the long run, a recovery seems to be highly likely. Therefore, now may be the right time to purchase a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares. 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.

Stock market crash: I’d buy cheap UK shares in an ISA today to make a million

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Image source: Getty Images. Following the stock market crash, many UK shares are now trading on relatively low valuations. Although there is the potential for them to move lower in the coming months due to ongoing coronavirus risks, over the long term, they have the potential to experience a strong recovery.Therefore, buying them now could prove to be a sound move. It may enable you to build a surprisingly large nest egg that may even be worth over £1m in the coming years.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…The recovery potential for cheap UK sharesBuying cheap UK shares after a stock market crash is never an easy task for any investor. Your gut instinct is to sell stocks when they have fallen heavily and their prospects are challenging due to a weak economic outlook.However, history shows that acting in the exact opposite manner can be a shrewd move. Indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 have long histories of experiencing periods of growth and decline. So far, neither have ever lasted in perpetuity. Therefore, investors who can buy when stock prices are low can access cheap valuations that are very likely to rise as the world economy’s growth rate and investor sentiment improve.Stock market crash potentialCertainly, there is the potential for another stock market crash that could cause the valuations of UK shares to decline yet further. However, above all else, this year has shown that many economic downturns and stock market declines cannot be accurately predicted ahead of time.Often, they start as potential threats to investors that quickly become major risks to economic growth. However, on other occasions they have been unforeseen events that quickly impact negatively on investor sentiment and stock prices.Therefore, waiting for a more settled economic environment may mean that you fail to capitalise on low valuations among UK shares at the present time. With heightened risk often come more attractive valuations that can catalyse the portfolios of long-term investors as indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 recover.Reducing riskOf course, it is important to reduce risk when buying UK shares. Otherwise, your portfolio returns could be decimated by economic woes.As such, diversifying across a wide range of shares is a prudent step for all investors to take. It reduces your reliance on a small number of businesses for your overall returns. Similarly, selecting high-quality businesses may lessen the impact of an economic downturn on your portfolio’s performance. It may also mean that you have a higher chance of taking part in a likely economic recovery.Clearly, UK shares are riskier investments than other assets such as cash and bonds. However, they offer significantly greater return prospects over the long run. Buying them today while they are cheap could be a sound means of improving your chances to make a million.

Lions 2017: Tourists must marry X-Factor with the basics

first_imgYet, it would do a little more helps to acknowledge the pragmatists, too. When asked about his own X-Factor among the chaos, the Lions’ starting tighthead to face the Blues, Dan Cole, gave a wry response.“I’ve been practising my drop-goals…”Kicking guru: Dan Cole talks kicks with Joe MarlerThe Leicester and England prop had previously explained that the quickest way to the try-line was a straight line but that there are several ways to play – that darn cat again. But here he also had the seasoned pro’s wariness of saying his team had to go to the magic box for the full game.“I think the X-factor he (Gatland) is looking for, if you get the basics in place, physicality, looking after the ball, if you get the 99% right it comes on top of that.“He’s not just going to ask us to pull something out of the bag. It comes out when you get everything else perfect. It’s the 1% on top that brings that out.“I don’t think he’s just looking for me to tap and go from my own goal-line, put it that way.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Fans want to be entertained, but the British & Irish Lions will succeed if they marry box-office play with looking after the ball. There may well be more that one way to skin a cat – from top-tier taxidermists to black market mounters, there will no doubt be a variance in where the first incision starts, for example – but the end result is the same: a skinned cat.In rugby now we think what we want is to be entertained. Much like the cat peelers, there are different ways to do that entertaining – from the off-the-deck offload to the dink over the top and in some rare cases the cut-out pass that does not allow a defence to drift onto you, there are many ways to propel punters’ bums off their seats. However, the end result is the same: rugby at its best is about exploiting space. Sometimes you can do that by doing the basics well.Pass marks: Robbie Henshaw starts at centre against the Auckland BluesOn Saturday the Lions did not do the basics well against a scratch side, and they underwhelmed. By Monday, Warren Gatland was bristling at being asked again if all of his sides played what has been dubbed “Warrenball” – a style of play that is boiled down to big men getting over the gainline and players following the arm to carry in the same manner. The odd assumption here, of course, is that no one else plays like this on the planet or that every phase is the same for any team that wants to.For 80 minutes rugby has ripples of nuance and moments of turgid predictability, regardless of who is playing. Yet, with only one Lions series game under our belts, we are now setting up the game of rugby as having only two options – at one end beefy, direct running into tacklers and at the other hot-potato play, with kick-passes, constant offloads and every player dummying. If one is right, the other is wrong, runs the logic.FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREIt shouldn’t be as simplistic as this, but when we are not entertained we lash out. So the Lions coaches have responded by trying to allay some fears before they face the Auckland Blues on Wednesday. Yesterday Gatland spoke of X-Factor and today Rob Howley consistently mentioned the players preparing for “chaos” – those moments when the game breaks up. The Lions attack coach wanted us to know that as well as this, the boys were going hell for leather.“We have a hugely competitive squad here and we did a drill yesterday, an offload drill, and the contact was explosive,” Howley went on to say of the team’s determination to loosen the shackles and blast everything. “That’s the challenge for us, sometimes you have to sit back sometimes as they want to give everything in training and we have to make sure we’re smart with that.Benchmark: Arch entertainer Sonny Bill Williams starts for the Blues“In terms of the contact, we were playing an offload drill and it got pretty heated. We’re mindful of injuries as well, but we are mindful of putting players under pressure as well. So there’s a fine balance but we went from a technical drill into open play and play what’s in front and suddenly it becomes a highly competitive contact.”This is what many want to hear. Quick hands and a readiness of shoulder is just want the baying crowd will want on Wednesday. TAGS: Highlight Out the back door: Courtney Lawes flips out an offload in training Moments of magic are great. But remember the goal of this series is to beat the All Blacks – a team who build their game on punishing errors, sending up plenty of kicks and often simply passing along the line at pace to the man in space. When the fleeting moment of X-Factor is added in, they sparkle.If or when the Lions are defeated, it will not purely be because they did not employ loads of cross-field kicks or use a cat-flap offload all game. It will most likely be because they still cough up the basics like a fur ball.last_img read more

Semi Radradra voted best Fijian wing from the modern NRL era

Big hand: Semi Radradra in action for Bristol Bears (Getty Images) Semi Radradra voted best Fijian wing from the modern NRL eraBristol Bears breakaway back Semi Radradra has topped a poll of NRL fans as their favourite ever Fijian winger. After 19,000 votes were counted in NRL.com’s poll, former Parramatta Eels star Radradra came out on top.In his time playing top-end rugby league in Australia, Radradra scored 82 tries in 94 matches. A deadly try-scoring record.Jarryd Hayne – another former Parramatta star who would also have a run with the Fiji sevens team (as he tried to make the Olympic squad back in 2016) – finished second in the poll. He garnered 26% of the vote.According to the league, “NRL.com recently launched the search for the Simply The Best players from 1990 to now to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic Tina Turner promotional campaign, which was again featured in this year’s advertisement for the Telstra Premiership, and is calling on the fans to have their say on a range of topics on the modern era.“In keeping with the Simply The Best theme of previous top tens, this list includes Fijian wingers who have strutted their stuff between 1990 and 2020.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img The Bristol flyer topped the poll for Aussie league Dotting down: Marika Koroibete scores for the Wallabies (Getty Images)And there are other recognisable faces on the list for union fans.Wallabies weapon Marika Koroibete is in the mix for his exploits in the NRL and notably with the Melbourne Storm. He shone there before crossing codes and joining the Rebels.And what about Lote Tuqiri? We know him best for his Wallabies exploits, but as the NRL said on their site of his league stand-outs: “Tuqiri played four Tests for Fiji, nine for Australia and six Origin matches for Queensland across his two stints in rugby league, first as an explosive winger for the Broncos from 1999-2002 and then as an elder statesman with the Wests Tigers and South Sydney from 2010-2014.”last_img read more

City Council Election: Weekend Poll Results

first_img Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear OPINION & ANALYSISThis weekend The Apopka Voice boldly ventured where no Apopka news source has gone before:  An online poll to gauge current public opinion regarding the Apopka City Council Elections.The poll was not “scientific” and while the results should not be considered statistically significant they are, nonetheless, interesting.Commissioner Sam Ruth and Candidate Kyle Becker received the most votes for Seat #3 and Seat #4, respectively.Ruth received 225 votes (48%)  in the Seat #3 contest, followed by Doug Bankson with 190 votes (40%) and Alice Nolan with 39 votes (8%).  In Seat #4 Becker received 213 votes (48%). Arrowsmith received 182 votes (42%), followed by Young Kim with 13 votes (3%).There were also 18 (4%), undecided votes in Seat #3, and 31 (7%) undecided votes in Seat #4.The results can be viewed here.

What did we learn from the poll?The poll indicates that Ruth and Bankson both have large followings. The election will likely come down to turning-out their supporters in mass to win. Either candidate seems to have the potential to do that. Alice Nolan placed well behind Ruth and Bankson, and probably has an uphill battle to win this election.The poll indicated that Arrowsmith and  Becker also have large followings. Similarly their race will be about getting those followers to vote in the election as well. Becker had perhaps the most surprising performance of the weekend. He seems to have overcome his newcomer status and beat a 39-year incumbent in a poll. Kim will struggle to catch these two candidates.An unscientific online poll conducted on the same weekend as The Old Florida Outdoor Festival is not meant to persuade voters. It is a snapshot of what approximately 500 voters are thinking at this moment in time approximately one month before an election.Polls do not change minds.Debates and forums can change minds. The candidates’ answers to questions asked can change minds. There are plenty of fundamentals that go into a political campaign designed to get a candidate’s message to the voters. It will be these fundamentals that will decide the 2016 Apopka City Commission elections, not a single online poll.last_img read more
