whatsapp Tuesday 15 March 2011 10:06 pm JAPAN’S Nikkei surged six per cent in the first hour of trading this morning after the Bank of Japan (BoJ) intervened for a third time pumping another 3.5 trillion yen (£26.8bn) in same-day funds into the financial system in a desperate bid to ease liquidity after Tokyo suffered its worst two-day drop in 24 years.The extraordinary action, which comes on top of seven trillion yen injected into its market operations on Monday morning and 8 trillion yen on Tuesday morning, came as the central bank tried to prop up asset values via short-term loans in the face of an escalating nuclear crisis and fears of unprecedented damage from the earthquake.The escalating crisis at Tokyo Electric’s Fukushima nuclear plant and its impact on electricity supplies to Japanese business is creating huge concern among investors about the overall effect on the economy. Last night a fresh fire broke out at reactor 1 following on from an earlier blaze, but a spokesman for Tokyo Electric said it was under control.Markets worldwide plunged yesterday after Japan issued an international alert following a third explosion at the nuclear plant in Fukushima and the Prime minister said the threat of nuclear contamination was rising. In America, the Dow Jones industrial average fell by 137.74 points to 11,855.42, while London’s FTSE 100 sank 79.86 points to a 15-week low. Oil prices plummeted below $110 a barrel with traders fretting that an economic seizure in Japan would stifle demand from the world’s third largest economy, while the yen plunged, with the dollar pushing up to 81.10 yen.

Blockchain’s role in fraud prevention Esports There was a time when AML regulations, data protection, IT security compliance and financial transaction processing used to be the only areas of focus for igaming operators. But times have changed. The concept of blockchain might feel a little intimidating, but in reality, it’s quite simple. The head of marketing at IT solutions provider Gammastack, outlines what blockchain is and discusses the wider impact of fraud prevention in esports betting. Having a good compliance programme in place enables esports betting operators to conform to the various regulations and allows them to minimise the risk of regulatory or criminal action, helps them maintain a healthy reputation in the industry, and enables them to identify areas of concerns and make amendments. By its nature, esports encourages plenty of in-game purchases and transactions, and so esports platforms are attractive to criminal elements. Hence, KYC regulations have become stricter than ever. So, what is KYC? If the compliance history and records of an online esports betting platform are weak, it can adversely affect the platform’s ability to acquire new licences as well as franchises. In short, we can say the success of an esports betting platform depends on its compliance history. In addition to this, the absence of a compliance programme also results in the revocation of the licence. Fraud prevention tools help esports betting businesses overcome frauds and breaches effectively by securing their registration and authentication processes and providing them with high-end verification solutions. 4. Automatic prize money transactionsSmart contracts help businesses set specific conditions on the blockchain. These conditions help to trigger automatic transactions. In esports, several conditions can be pre-set regarding prize money. Hence, the winners and runners-up can automatically get paid when the tournament gets concluded. Blockchain stores information or data, just like a simple database. The difference between the two is how the data is structured and stored. These frauds take a toll on the business’ overall revenue, damage its reputation and cause wastage of funds. 2. More transparencyNo one can alter the information that blockchain stores. When it is given incorrect information, it needs the correct information to reverse the mistake. And at the end of the day, both the correct and incorrect data are visible. This visibility enhances transparency and helps tournament organisers establish trust among gamers. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Some of these solutions include device fingerprinting, IP analysis and use of light, as well as stringent KYC checks, moderating sources of incoming traffic, implementing security questions and answers, as well as detection of suspicious activity and users. 3. High-end data securityMillions of computer systems that participate in the chain store the data in blocks. Hence, even if the data gets lost somehow, it can always be recovered. Compliance and its impact on esports betting operators Online platforms have always been more vulnerable to fraud than land-based platforms. The convenience they offer is one reason why they’ve become the new safe place for cybercriminals and money launderers. The scope of blockchain in esports The data gets stored in fresh blocks where each block comes with storage capacity. Once this happens, it gets connected with the previous block containing data. And together, these blocks of data form the blockchain. 11th March 2021 | By contenteditor Fraud prevention renders several benefits to esports betting operators, including customer protection, minimised disputes, reduced regulatory fines, high-end security and increased credibility. Now that we have a basic understanding of how it works, let’s talk more about the type of data that blockchain stores. The data can be transaction records or information about tangible or intangible assets. These assets can include patents, intellectual property, copyrights, houses, office space or cars, for example. Topics: Esports Tech & innovation esports betting Fraud ID, Blockchain Every esports betting platform starts small. And when things go well, businesses strive to expand to various other jurisdictions. To do so, they need to conform to specific jurisdictional laws. But there is a catch. But what exactly is compliance? Well, it means aligning with certain rules and regulations, standards, laws and policies. Blockchain and fraud prevention in esports betting KYC for esports betting operators These days regulations are tighter than ever and have completely transformed the landscape of compliance, which continues to evolve. 1. Fraud eliminationThe data is recorded once and is visible to all the network participants. This data not only helps eliminate duplicate entries but also helps enhance transparency which, in turn, can also help to eliminate fraud. This can lead to affiliate scams, bonus misuse, multi-accounting, account takeovers, chargebacks and even money laundering.

KYC protects online esports platforms from fraud and enables esports operators to avoid severe penalties. It also helps operators keep their platforms safe and secure for legitimate customers while protecting their platforms’ integrity. KYC enables esports betting operators to get vital data about their customers and ensure they are not involved or associated with financial crimes such as money laundering. Though KYC checks are carried out during the onboarding of a customer, due diligence is an ongoing process that monitors and controls any suspicious activity.

Over half of all respondents said that they already support local events in their local communities.

John Goodchild, Chairman of Lions Clubs International, British Isles and Ireland said: “People are sceptical as to whether every penny they donate actually reaches the intended cause. However, as one of a few charitable organisations that does not deduct an administration cost from donations, people who volunteer to become Lions can be assured that all money they raise will always goes directly to the cause.” Psychologist Donna Dawson studied the results of Lions’ research and commented: “The survey… reveals that most people could be persuaded to help with a local cause, especially if they could be sure that all of the funds raised, reached the nominated charitable cause.”Lions Clubs International is launching its awareness week, which runs between 25 March and 4 April 2005 across the British Isles and Ireland, to promote its work and attract new volunteers.Following Lions Awareness Week, Lions Clubs International will be involved with providing support for the ‘Kellogg’s Cornflakes Great Walk 2005’. Lions Clubs International is the Official Volunteer Partner for the Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Great Walk 2005 and is currently responsible for recruiting marshals and administering applications to volunteer at the 54 10K events across the British Isles and Ireland.ICM interviewed a random sample of 1,003 adults aged 18+, by telephone between 7 and 9 March 2005. Interviews were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults.
Pence went on to says that following Indiana’s withdrawal of support for this project, U.S. officials have reported that the government of Pakistan and Fatima Group have provided an unprecedented level of cooperation and transparency in addressing the concerns that precipitated the withdrawal of state support. “Specifically, U.S. Department of Defense officials have confirmed that an experimental formula is being developed by Fatima Group to be more inert and less-detonable to limit its usefulness to extremists and terrorists. This week, the State of Indiana was informed that our defense experts completed the second series of tests on the experimental formula and described Fatima Group’s efforts to improve the safety of its fertilizer as “commendable.” In addition, U.S. officials have reported that the government of Pakistan and the Fatima Group have implemented several positive measures to make it more difficult for extremists and terrorists to obtain the company’s products in the region.” Facebook Twitter State Reopens Discussions For Posey County Fertilizer Plant SHARE Previous articleAdvanced Biofuels Focus of Senate Ag Committee HearingNext articleIndiana Food Survey Shows Consumer Prices Decline from 2013 Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News State Reopens Discussions For Posey County Fertilizer Plant By Gary Truitt – Apr 8, 2014 “With these assurances from the U.S. Department of Defense, we believe it is appropriate for the State of Indiana to reopen our discussions regarding state economic incentives for this project. With continued cooperation on the part of the government of Pakistan and Fatima Group, we remain hopeful that the State of Indiana will be able to renew our support for this important economic development project with the confidence that we have done so in a manner that put the interests of our soldiers and their families first,” Pence said. Facebook Twitter On Tuesday, Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement regarding the Midwest Fertilizer Company and the Fatima Group’s project in Posey County, “In May of 2013, the State of Indiana withdrew our support for the Midwest Fertilizer Company and the Fatima Group’s project in Posey County based upon concerns expressed by U.S. Department of Defense officials over the company’s lack of cooperation in preventing its fertilizer produced in Pakistan from being used to harm U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Economic development is important, but the safety and security of our soldiers in harm’s way is more important.” SHARE
Planting Forecast Sponsors How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleGreen Stem Syndrome Ryan Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE And, a look at the potential big front late in week 4: Harvest Forecast: Harvest Window About to Reopen By Ryan Martin – Oct 13, 2017 Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Harvest Forecast: Harvest Window About to Reopen SHARE Battle Resistance With the Soy Checkoff ‘Take Action’ Program Facebook Twitter Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: above)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above)Week 4Precipitation (green: above normal, brown: above)Temperatures (blue: below normal, orange: above) An absolutely fantastic harvest forecast is ahead of us this morning. After a little rain to start things off, we are going to put together a week’s worth of dry weather over the state. That dry stretch will be headlined by temperatures that climb to above normal levels once again.A Strong wind will be seen for Saturday as we start things off. Thes winds will average 12-25 mph out of the southwest ahead of a frontal boundary that comes in for Sunday. The winds, along with the sunshine, will increase our evaporation rates and lead to good dry down statewide and should be conducive to fieldwork. The southwest winds will push temps back to above normal levels.Our ONE chance of rain in the nearby harvest forecast comes Sunday. A strong front is tracking into the state early, with rains starting in the morning, perhaps even racing sunrise for an arrival time. However, the front is moving rather quickly, and that means rains should be done in most locations by late afternoon or evening, ahead of sunset. Rain totals from this system will be around .25”-.75” over about 75% of the state, but we also think that many areas will stay to the lower end of the range. Our thought process there is twofold: 1) the front looks like it may want to move faster, allowing for shorter duration rains in most places, and 2) we look to miss out on most thunderstorm development – those seem to be limited to areas farther west in the corn belt. The map above shows thoughts of cumulative rains for the event through Sunday evening.That brings us to the heart of the harvest forecast today. We have a completely dry week coming as high pressure settles in Monday morning and holds all the way through at least this coming Saturday. We will have some cooler air in to start the week behind our Sunday front, but we should not see the lingering clouds and dampness that we saw this past week. Sunshine will help temps bounce quickly and the will see them climb to mostly above normal levels by late in the week, if not by midweek. Evaporation rates will be near maximum by midweek and will hold through the end of the period as well, thanks to strong high pressure. A new wrinkle may need to be watched, as a minor front tries to push into the state around the 22nd into the 23rd. Rain totals there likely stay under .4”, with coverage less than 60% the way things look right now.Extended PeriodIn the extended period, we have a front early on, around the 24th, that can bring up to .75” of rain to about 80% of the state, but it is followed up by another strong upper-level high-pressure dome. This will allow for some drying, but also cooler air to come in as we finish the month of October. We could see a second front around the 29th into the 30th that has half to 1.5” rain potential. However, the best rains from that front may stay farther west and northWeeks 3 & 4:Cooler air comes in for week three with temps mostly below normal. However, we see near normal precipitation and no fronts that are exceptionally exciting. Week 4 brings temps that are back to normal and above normal levels, and precipitation that is near normal. However, we do see a strong front toward the end of week 4 that has the potential to take precipitation and push it well above normal. The front is large, should have excellent moisture potential and will feature a massive cooldown behind it too. So, early November is a period really to watch, in our opinion this week.Week 3 Minor Changes in June WASDE Report

In the Southern Ocean white-chinned petrels Procellaria aequinoctialis form the majority of the bird bycatch in longline fisheries. Satellite tracking of breeding birds from the Crozet islands and from South Georgia indicates that during incubation they have the longest mean foraging ranges ever recorded for a seabird, 2390 and 2190 km. Crozet birds travel to the coast of South Africa at 3495 km, into subtropical waters as well as to Antarctic waters. South Georgia birds reach the northern Patagonian shelf. In all these areas birds are potentially in contact with fisheries. These results indicate that conservation measures limited to Antarctic waters are insufficient to protect seabirds with such extensive foraging ranges.
