The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) found advertisements for four gambling operators appeared in online media likely to be of particular appeal to children during the second quarter of 2020.In total 70 different ads from the quartet of unnamed operators appeared on eight websites were discovered in the advertising watchdog’s latest online monitoring sweep, used to identify and tackle age-restricted promotions appearing in children’s media.This forms part of a year-long project in which with ASA is monitoring ads served on a sample of more than 50 websites and YouTube channels with particularly large underage audiences. Once ads are identified, the ASA has contacted the advertisers to ensure the promotions are renewed, and warned them to ensure a similar breach of regulations is avoided in future.It is focusing on ads for gambling, alcohol, e-cigarettes and tobacco, slimming and weight control products, and food and drink classed as high in fat, salt or sugar (HFSS). UK advertising regulations state that businesses should avoid exposing those aged 18 and below to ads for these products.In total the ASA identified 159 age-restricted ads that broke the rules, served by 35 advertisers across 34 websites and five YouTube channels.Ads for HFSS products were the most widely seen by minors, with 78 different ads for 29 advertisers appearing on 24 websites and five YouTube channels. Gambling followed in second, ahead of 10 alcohol ads for one brand, which all appeared on the same site, and one e-cigarette ad, which again appeared on a single site.“The ASA is using technology to proactively monitor online ads to help build a culture of zero tolerance for age-restricted ads appearing on websites aimed at children,” ASA chief executive Guy Parker said. “We expect advertisers and the parties they contract with to use the sophisticated tools available to them to target their ads responsibly.“This is just one part of a wider set of initiatives we’re undertaking to ensure children are protected online and we’ll report on our further work in this area in the coming months.” The ASA first began using avatars that simulate minors’ internet browsing habits last year, to monitor the number of age-restricted ads seen by this demographic. Its initial sweep, the results of which were released in April 2019, revealed that ads from 43 gambling operators were served to its child avatars.Of this number, five were found to have broken rules relating to gambling ads being targeted at under-18s, with the companies responsible accepting fault, and in some cases blaming third-party marketing partners for the breaches.This year the ASA’s Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) has issued a warning to operators over esports betting promotions, saying that this could be of particular appeal to minors.However, it says that on television, underage exposure to gambling ads is continuing to decline, with promotions for the industry making up less than 2% of all ads seen in 2019. The ASA pointed out that this was due in part to changing media consumption habits, which has seen young people migrate online to websites and YouTube channels.Gambling operators, meanwhile, are stepping up efforts to reduce minors’ exposure to ads, with a Gambling Commission working group looking to stop social media and pay per click advertising targeting those aged 25 or under.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear By Aviva Rutkin, The ConversationEditor’s note: As we come to the end of the year, Conversation editors take a look back at the stories that – for them – exemplified 2018.The end of the year is a classic time for reflection. But, in today’s turbulent news cycle, it can be hard to keep track of what happened last week, let alone what was going on way back on Jan. 1.For a look back at 2018, I’d like to slow down and draw attention to a few stories that looked at the big picture. How is the U.S. changing, on a grand and gradual scale? How are Americans different than they were last year, or last decade, or last century?These patterns may not yet be fully understood, but they hint at what the U.S. could become.1. Americans aren’t living as longThis was the third year in a row with falling U.S. life expectancy.“The U.S. is not bumping up against natural limits to life expectancy,” writes David Bishai, who studies health economics at Johns Hopkins University. “The extra American funerals were for American sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, neighbors and coworkers dying in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. Their death certificates list mostly overdoses from opioids and other substances, cirrhosis, suicide and homicide.”2. Americans aren’t having as many kidsIt’s a baby bust: This year, the national fertility rate fell by 2 percent, to just 1.76 children per women. That’s the lowest the rate has been in 30 years.Demographers offered a number of explanations for the drop, including birth control use and the high cost of having children.Caroline Sten Hartnett at the University of South Carolina isn’t too worried, explaining that the drop brings the U.S. closer to its peers: “This gap between the U.S. and other developed countries baffled demographers through the 1990s and early 2000s.”3. Americans are getting olderThe declining birth rate and the rising death rate go hand in hand. Some counties are experiencing “natural decrease,” a demographic phenomenon where the number of deaths actually outweigh the number of births.Meanwhile, the country’s average age has shot up, from 28.1 years old in 1970 to 37.9 in 2016.“This graying of America has left a distinctive geographical fingerprint,” says Peter Rogerson, a geographer at SUNY Buffalo. Americans over 70 are more highly concentrated in popular retirement states like Florida and Arizona, as well as the Midwest and the Appalachians.4. Americans are struggling with new racial dynamicsIn the 1990s, California plunged into political turmoil, thanks to sharp job losses and a wave of anti-immigration sentiment.Manuel Pastor at the University of Southern California, Dornsife believes that this political environment was borne from a rising “racial generation gap” between white people over 65 and young people of color.He sees California state history replaying on the national stage today. “Much like in California in the 1990s, we have seen a racialized ‘whitelash’ which in this case brought the election of Donald Trump, the racist violence in Charlottesville, and the revocation of DACA, the program designed to protect undocumented youth brought to this country at an early age.”5. Americans are moving to the suburbsOver the last 50 years, Americans have gradually moved away from rural regions, drawn largely by urban economic opportunity. Today, more than 80 percent of Americans live in an urban or suburban area.But millennials don’t seem to share previous generations’ enthusiasm for suburban life, writes Arizona State University’s Christopher Boone. “Will millennials follow older generations to the suburbs as they marry, have children, recover from the shocks of the Great Recession and find affordable housing? The jury is still out.” Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

Closing was a very difficult but necessary decision, owner Sam Schuepbach said. Since opening in 1989, Schuepbach said they have enjoyed “many, many years of great success and community support and enthusiasm.” “We need development and I’m a fan of the development,” Cooley said. “I think it’s great that we’re going to have more offices and more housing and ostensibly more people in the core of Collegetown, but at the same time when a project that’s slated for three months takes more than 18 months of street closure that changes people’s habits.” Aladdin’s has long been a favorite for Greek, Middle Eastern and Italian fare, recognized in a number of positive newspaper reviews over the years and by different “best of” awards. Over the years, Aladdin’s has taken part in many community-focused events like “Taste of the Nation,” which raises money to end childhood hunger. For several years, he also hosted a free Thanksgiving meal for people in need. The idea came from his family around the holidays and he had help planning from his wife, stepdaughters, and staff. The flyers he circulated in 2014 to promote the event read: “It is our honor to serve a complimentary meal to those in need.” Schuepbach estimates they cooked more than 20 turkeys and served more than 250 people. Though it’s a hard time, Schuepbach is remaining positive. A note posted on the door of Aladdin’s this week states that many factors have left him no other option but to close, but he thanked all of his current and past employees because “without them no small business can survive.” He also thanked Travis Hyde Properties for 30 years of partnership, and finally expressed gratitude to the Ithaca community. “It takes support from everybody for a small business to survive, and I want to thank everybody,” Schuepbach said. Aladdin’s was the longest tenant Travis Hyde Properties has had, Frost Travis said. Aladdin’s has occupied the building at 100 Dryden Rd. since its construction. Travis said he is “deeply saddened” by the business’ closing. Being in business for so long “speak volumes to Sam’s prowess as a restauranteur,” Travis said. Kelsey O’Connor “He’s one of the hardest working people I know. I wish him great success in the future,” Travis said. Though Aladdin’s has remained at the heart of Collegetown at 100 Dryden Rd. for many years, around the restaurant, Collegetown has been changing. With a number of shop vacancies, construction projects, road closures, and parking issues in recent years, it’s been a tough time for local businesses in Collegetown. Cooley, who has had tough times through the phases of construction also, said he thinks there is a lack of empathy and thoughtfulness from city leaders and developers on the short-term impact to merchants. ITHACA, N.Y. — Aladdin’s Natural Eatery has been an anchor in the Collegetown community for three decades, but this weekend the restaurant served its last meals. Sam Schuepbach has owned Aladdin’s Natural Eatery since 1989. Sam Schuepbach has owned Aladdin’s Natural Eatery since 1989. Aladdin’s is the latest in a number of longtime establishments that have disappeared from Collegetown’s evolving and rising landscape. Last year, the owners of The Nines retired and sold their property. In recent years, some other businesses that have closed include Stella’s, the Royal Palm Tavern, Pixel, Dino’s, The Chapter House and even Dunkin Donuts.

More by Kelsey O’Connor One of Schuepbach’s neighbors of nearly 20 years, Chuck Cooley, co-owner of Classic Optical, said he was devastated to learn Aladdin’s was closing. He said the restaurant has been an “anchor” business in Collegetown and a boost to the local economy.
