Worldpay and Paysafe target US with new partnership

first_img Regions: US Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Sports betting 26th November 2018 | By contenteditor Venture will focus on digital payments in igaming and sports betting Tags: Online Gambling Payments Topics: Sports betting Tech & innovation Worldpay and Paysafe target US with new partnership Email Address Worldpay and Paysafe Group have today (Monday) announced a new strategic partnership with the aim of capitalising on growth within the US iGaming and sports betting markets. The two payment technology providers will work together to develop new solutions for payments acceptance and security across both sectors. Worldpay – acquired by Vantiv earlier this year – will leverage its optimised credit card processing, fast-fund payouts, and various treasury and payment solutions. Paysafe will call upon its range of online gambling digital payment options, such as the NETELLER digital wallet and paysafecard online cash solution. Using these technologies, Worldpay and Paysafe said they will be able to provide seamless connectivity via a single point of integration to a range of payments, including credit card processing, digital wallets and cash payment solutions. Joel Leonoff, president and CEO at Paysafe, said the solution would allow operators in the US to offer customers a “secure, cost-effective and highly configurable payments platform that delivers an unparalleled player experience”. “Our innovative approach means we can support all transactions, no matter how the player wants to pay,” Leonoff explained.Worldpay executive vice president and head of global enterprise ecommerce Shane Happach added: “As a leading payments provider for iGaming companies, state lotteries and land-based casinos, Worldpay is excited about the enhancements this partnership will bring when it comes to maximizing payment acceptance, enabling new digital wallets, as well as minimizing fraud risk and lowering cost.“Our combined strengths and capabilities will simplify payments for gaming operators, while also continuing to show our attentiveness to responsible gaming and our mission to protect the integrity of every transaction.” The move comes at a time of significant growth in the US market, due in part to the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA earlier this year, which opened up legal sports betting to all states. New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, West Virginia and Rhode Island have all moved to legalise sports betting in the wake of the ruling, while sports betting is also available in New Mexico at the Santa Ana Star Casino under tribal laws.Image: GotCredit AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

Incredible try saving tackle by Australia’s Nicole Beck at the WRWC

first_imgThursday Sep 2, 2010 Incredible try saving tackle by Australia’s Nicole Beck at the WRWC The England ladies progressed to the final of the Women’s Rugby World Cup after they beat Australia 15-0 in an entertaining match at the Twickenham Stoop last night. While England celebrated the win, the moment on everyone’s mind was this outstanding cover tackle from Wallaroo winger, Nicole Beck.ADVERTISEMENTIt was a great defensive display from England and while they got their own back in the second half – with flanker Maggie Alphonsi looking like a young Serge Betsen as she tackled everything that moved the hit of the first half went to Aussie Beck, who absolutely smashed flying England winger Fiona Pocock as she flew down the touchline.Unfortunately, the impact of the hit resulted in what looked like a serious knee injury for Pocock, who landed heavily as Beck put in the immense covering tackle.The match itself had everything you’d want out of a top class semi final, as the women on display showed that their hands, physicality, and ultimately their commitment, is never in question.For those naysayers, do yourself a favour and watch the final on Sunday. England will be up against favourites New Zealand as the two best sides in the tournament are sure to put on quite the spectacle.Watch a replay of this match, the other semi final, match highlights, and then the live final (on Sunday at 17:15 local time) at rwcwomens.com.

COVID vaccines are big business and a political weapon

first_imgBy Manuel RaposoManuel Raposo is editor of jornalmudardevida.net in Portugal, where this article was published Feb. 14. Translation: John Catalinotto.It has often been said that so-called “natural” disasters, including unforeseeable catastrophes, lay bare the weaknesses of the societies they strike. The health, social and economic crisis the coronavirus triggered is an example of this. An aggravating factor is that it has long been predicted that the spread of a virus similar in character was likely to occur.But this crisis has exposed another aspect of today’s societies — the cutthroat competition among the world’s major capitalist powers in the race for vaccines, both for the colossal profits flowing to pharmaceutical companies and for geostrategic advantages.Under present circumstances, all the abuses of imperialist capitalism take on dimensions of inhumanity and violence that normally are only found during open warfare.Capitalism weaponizes the COVID-19 vaccines.Since the outbreak of the health crisis, even in the countries considered to be the most developed, what has become clear is the inadequacy of public health systems (due to undervaluing and underfunding), as well as the inability of private health services to respond to the emergency. The political power’s neglect of public health was evident in its disregard for the predictions that an epidemic outbreak was likely to occur.The last few months have added another novelty: unbridled competition over vaccines. Earlier, a considerable number of countries agreed on a partnership called COVAX, under the aegis of the World Health Organization. Brimming with good intentions, COVAX was supposed to support research and production of vaccines and then their distribution on an equal footing around the world. Despite these plans, competition took over as soon as the first vaccines were discovered.Early cooperation aided Big PharmaThe COVAX agreement was useful to the big capitalist pharmaceutical companies, as it provided for the exchange of scientific data that in turn accelerated the design of vaccines. Gigantic government funding, made with people’s tax money, helped the pharmaceuticals.But any agreement or promise of equal treatment became a dead letter once the vaccines became a reality: The usual criterion — business as usual — prevailed. If anyone thought that public funding would defend the public interest, they were quickly disillusioned.At the same time, the most powerful states are vying for vaccines for a different reason: to ensure economic supremacy over their competitors. Whichever national state is quickest to shake off the pandemic and return to economic “normalcy” can hope to gain decisive advantages.This is what leads, for example, the U.S., to a veritable hoarding of vaccines to the detriment of the rest of the world — ultimately penalizing poorer countries in particular. Britain has done the same with vaccines produced on its territory, undermining the vaccination plans of the European Union.The EU’s disregard for Russian and Chinese vaccines is a clear result of a policy aimed at benefiting the pharmaceutical companies of “Western allies.” But even this has not prevented the EU — after having advanced millions of euros to the pharmaceutical companies — from being put on the back burner, trailing the moves of Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and now Joe Biden.The proven inability of the major pharmaceutical companies to produce the necessary quantity of vaccine should logically lead them to decentralize production to different countries. But working against this good sense solution is the narrow interest of these companies to make as much profit as possible — which happens when they sell finished products and when the products are in short supply.The health emergency ought to justify the abolition of patents and to encourage large-scale production, free of all fees, by all qualified laboratories in the world. But this does not happen because it clashes, once again, with the private interests of the pharmaceutical giants, centered so far in two countries: the United States and Britain.Monstrous global inequitiesThe monstrous nature of all this gains even more relevance in the face of data released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.In 2020 in the poorest countries, an additional 100 million people were relegated to a situation of extreme poverty. During 2021, the same will happen to another 150 million. Some 270 million people have been pushed to the brink of starvation. (OECD, “Global Crisis, Unequal Problems”)While in the higher-income countries, social protection measures to cope with the pandemic amounted to $695 per person, in the poorest countries only $4 per capita were allocated.The rich countries have raised $14 trillion to support their economies, but have refused to forgive the debts of African countries, which amount to $100 billion,, or 1/140th of the former amount.Inequalities with long-term effects are also accentuated. In poor countries an average of 16 weeks of school was lost, while in rich countries 6 weeks were lost.Discrimination in vaccine distribution is another aspect of this war. So far, 94% of the vaccines have been delivered to the wealthiest countries (with about 20% of the world’s population), and 10 of those countries received 55%.The nearly 100 poorest countries, with 80% of the world’s population, should (according to the COVAX plan for 2021) receive two billion doses of vaccines, via $5 billion in funding — but only $2 billion has been raised for this purpose. Even if the plan were followed, at most only 20% of the population in these countries could expect to be vaccinated; while in self-funded countries, 50% of the population can be vaccinated in the near future. At the current rate, in the best case it won’t be until 2024 that the populations of the poorest countries can all expect to be vaccinated. (Diário de Notícias, Feb. 11)‘Vaccine diplomacy’The Economist magazine, for its part, confirms these facts and adds some interesting statements. “Vaccine diplomacy” will determine which countries will have access to vaccines in the coming months.Production represents the biggest obstacle, “as many developed countries have pre-ordered more doses than they need.” The orders under the COVAX agreement will take time to reach poor countries, “especially if delays in the production for and delivery to richer countries push back delivery dates for poorer nations.” (Economist, Jan. 27)It is impossible to hide these facts: The private interests of the pharmaceutical companies, chasing maximum profit, converges with the interests of the major capitalist powers in managing the course of the pandemic in the interest of achieving hegemony. The imperialist countries are using the vaccine shortage as a weapon to obtain advantages for themselves and in disputes between them. Under no circumstances would world capitalism soften its stance and grant poor countries what it has so far never granted them: debt forgiveness, bailout money or equal treatment — because that is the condition for keeping them dependent.All the capital that the imperialist world decides to apply in the fight against the pandemic goes through a rigorous profit-and-loss calculation, like any business investment.

Government creates working group to restrict online free expression

The fact that China is being cited as an example shows how repressive these plans are.”Slabadchuk acknowledged that existing civil and criminal law provisions already apply to the Internet, but he defended the working group’s creation on the grounds that it was hard to identify those responsible for online violations and that the media law did not apply to Internet activity.“This is why, as it is not banned by His Majesty the Law, you can write anything you like on the Internet,” he told the Interfax news agency. He claimed that the new regulations would not restrict freedom, but he went on to cite how the Internet is controlled in China, where at least 50 Internet users are currently imprisoned.Andrei Bastunets, deputy chairman of the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), told Reporters Without Borders the government could include these new restrictions in a law for the protection of information that is to come before parliament in the autumn or in a new version of the media law.“The aim of Internet Regulation is to shut Belarus behind a legal and technological fence,” Bastunets said. “It is obviously impossible to close down all the websites overnight. But they can restrict the part of the Internet available to Belarusians and establish the necessary conditions for targeted prosecutions against Internet users.” June 2, 2021 Find out more “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Newslast_img read more
