It’s still a strong pace of growth … we think we are looking at (GDP) growth in the region of 0.6 per cent,” said Chris Williamson at data provider Markit.The pace of growth in the euro zone manufacturing sector, which drove a large part of the economy’s return to growth in the third quarter of last year, saw its pace of growth ease off to its slowest since January.The flash manufacturing index fell to 53.6 in September from 55.1 in August, missing forecasts for 54.5, while the output index sank to 54.4 this month, from 57.1 in August.The composite index, made up from the services and manufacturing sectors and often used to predict overall growth, sank to 53.8 this month from 56.2 in August, well short of expectations for 55.7.The euro zone escaped from its deepest recession in post-war history in the third quarter of last year, having pumped billions of euros into recovery measures, and relatively strong second-quarter growth of 1.0 per cent announced last month surprised markets.Still, economists in a Reuters poll expect economic growth to slow to a crawl over coming quarters as austerity packages begin to bite, though the chances of the bloc slipping back into recession remain slim.Median forecasts from the poll of around 70 economists predict the 16-nation bloc will grow by 0.2 to 0.4 per cent each quarter through to the end of next year.The manufacturers’ new orders index slumped from 55.3 in August to 52.8 in September, its lowest in a year, on the back of a slowdown in global trade in recent months.The service sector saw its new business index fall by a similar margin.Data released on Wednesday showed industrial new orders fell more than twice as much as expected month-on-month in July, pulled down by a slump in demand for capital and durable consumer goods.However, service sector’s business expectations index – which gives an indication of how firms think the situation will be in a year’s time – rose to 68.1 this month from August’s 67.1, its highest reading since April.

Understanding the current state of cheating in esports betting

first_img Topics: Esports esports betting So it’s important to understand the tiers in esports and why they are relevant to esports betting? 4th May 2021 | By contenteditor Esports Exactly. In the games we’re talking about, we often refer to levels of competition as tier-one, tier-two and tier-three. It is exactly as it sounds on the box. What’s most visible is high-tier competition, often referred to as the Majors, or The International or the League of Legends Championships series, the LCS, the LEC, League of Legends Asian Championship. What that attracts is highly organised teams, often multi-game organisations. If you think of an organisation like FaZe Clan or Team Liquid or Cloud9, these are large organisations with a lot of resources at their disposal. They also offer rosters playing in multiple different games, so a lot of those orgs have teams within them playing Dota 2, Counter-Strike and League of Legends. They might have an Overwatch franchise, they might have a Call of Duty roster. They might have a PUBG roster. They might also have streamers and social media people. In other words, they have a backup system. They have resources; the players earn a lot of money and they play in highly organised series like the ESL Pro League or BLAST Premier. There’s very high visibility to those events, and we refer to those events as tier-one. Those guys are doing really well, and they’re really, really good at what they do.  Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Understanding the current state of cheating in esports betting Cheating with respect to match-fixing and betting fraud in esports is relatively high and there are a number of reasons for that. The first is that markets are often offered on matches that have very low prize money, and the markets tend to be bigger than the prize money on offer. That’s very, very tempting, particularly in tier-two and tier-three esports because the guys at that level are struggling financially. They’re aspiring to a level where they see examples of guys who are earning hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. In a situation where you can win, say, $2,000 as a team for winning a competition, but you could win three or four times that amount by betting against yourself and losing the match, you create a serious problem there. Relying on people’s simple values and morality to not do that is a massive overstretch, so we need measures to address that challenge. The prevalence is high and it is regional as well. In particular, we’re dealing with primarily the three major betting products, which are Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2, and then to a much lesser extent, League of Legends. All other games make up, broadly speaking, “the rest”. None of them are more than 1 or 2% of the market. Counter-Strike is anywhere from 42% to 44% of the global turnover on esports betting, so it’s a very significant game in the betting world, but it’s also a highly unregulated game. The publisher, Valve, doesn’t interfere in the organisation of any leagues or tournaments except with respect to the Majors.  How prevalent is match fixing in esports betting? What that means is that, by and large, tournament operators ranging from the smallest to the biggest can put on more or less whatever event they choose. That means that the competitive scene is saturated with low-level tournaments and, when you add the fact that many of these tournament operators are severely under-resourced, they don’t have the time, inclination or knowledge many times, to put good measures in place to ensure that match-fixing is, if not eliminated, then, at least, minimised. At the moment, the best way of addressing that is to join ESIC and let us handle the problem. But if you don’t want to do that, then you have to make sure you have decent regulations in place, that you’ve educated your players and, at the very least, have an official data deal with a company that can alert you to the fact that a match is attracting suspicious or unusual betting. Then you stand a chance of doing something about it. IAN SMITH, INTEGRITY COMMISSIONER, ESIC It’s very, very competitive at that level because prize money is low and you’ve got a lot of expenses and a lot of competition. When it comes to betting, there’s a great deal of temptation to take the easy win of a little bit of cash in a competition that doesn’t matter too much. Again, there’s no structure. Often, in that level of competition, it becomes about survival, about getting through the next month without having to go get a job. That creates tremendous difficulties because you can often earn more by match-fixing than you can by winning the competition. When there’s no structure, no league, when there’s no ladder that you’re climbing, you can often take a “what’s the harm?” view of certain matches and competitions. There’s no consequence, except, of course, if you get caught. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter But of course, like all sports, there’s an aspirational level below that. If you look in the American context, you’d be looking at the difference between different collegiate levels of competition where you have the Big 10 at the top. Different conferences have different tiers of competition, and then they draft to the NFL. Tier-one is the NFL. Everything below that is college, and then you might even say there’s a tier-three and four, which is high school level. The same applies in most esports. The problem is that, at a college level in America at tier-two or three, you have a lot of guys with potential, and they have this aspiration to reach the NFL, but there’s very little space up there. So you know that, of all the players in college football, a tiny percentage, certainly less than three or four percent, will end up being professionals in the NFL. Esports and most sports operate the same way.  As the integrity commissioner of the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC), Ian Smith is the foremost expert on cheating in esports. Here he tells iGB about the current state of cheating and how the lower levels of competition pose unique challenges to operators and players.

El imperialismo EE.UU. usa dólares para gobernar economía mundial

first_imgToda la estructura del sistema financiero mundial, donde cada día, billones de dólares, euros y yuanes se desplazan de un banco a otro, de particulares a empresas, y de todo tipo de instituciones, aún refleja la dominación del dólar estadounidense.Según el Banco Mundial, el 50 por ciento de todos los bonos y préstamos emitidos en todo el mundo están valorados en dólares estadounidenses, y la proporción del comercio mundial valorada en dólares es cuatro veces la cantidad de comercio mundial proveniente de los EE.UU. Además, el 60 por ciento de los países del mundo, que producen el 70 por ciento de la producción mundial, dependen del dólar estadounidense para valorar su moneda.Dicho de otra manera, la mayor parte del comercio mundial es en dólares estadounidenses, incluso entre entidades fuera de los EE.UU.Los 32 regímenes sancionados aplicados activamente por los EE.UU., que incluyen no solo países y organizaciones sancionados como las “Organizaciones criminales transnacionales”, sino también países que hacen negocios con estas entidades sancionadas, cambian con frecuencia. Algunos, como las sanciones contra Cuba, han permanecido en vigor durante décadas. Otros países con un número significativo de neocolonias, como Francia, tienen sus propias políticas de sanciones.Sin embargo, Alemania, cuya economía produce mucho más por trabajador que la economía de EE.UU., ha tenido que seguir el decreto de sanciones estrictas contra Irán. Los bancos alemanes, los mercados bursátiles y las compañías comerciales necesitan acceso al capital que está bloqueado detrás del dólar estadounidense.Después de que la poderosa Alemania cedió ante el poder del dólar, las potencias europeas más débiles como Bélgica, Francia e Italia se alinearon en las sanciones, a pesar de que sus gobiernos se quejaron.No fue la primera vez que el imperialismo alemán sintió el poder del dólar estadounidense y las sanciones. Después de que el armisticio de noviembre de 1918 terminó la lucha en la Primera Guerra Mundial, pasaron ocho meses antes de que se firmara el tratado de paz en junio de 1919. Los Aliados mantuvieron sus sanciones en los puertos alemanes durante esos ocho meses, mientras que 100.000 alemanes murieron de hambre y enfermedades prevenibles.Sanciones permiten que EE.UU. oculte su papelTanques, bombas, explosivos, balas y napalm dejan un rastro claro. Los niños a los que les faltan extremidades porque jugaron con las minas y las bombas que el Pentágono ha dejado caer en gran abundancia pueden ser fotografiados y entrevistados. Cuando las Fuerzas Armadas de los EE.UU. disparan a las personas y ocupan un país, las personas a menudo responden.Esta resistencia popular puede despertar oposición en los Estados Unidos para apoyar tales medidas militares.Por otro lado, si los niños mueren por falta de vacunas o sus padres mueren por falta de dinero para medicamentos para la presión arterial, el impacto político es menor. Y se puede culpar a los gobiernos de los países sancionados, en lugar del país que impone las sanciones. Un ejemplo es la cobertura mediática de Zimbabwe.Los países utilizan relaciones estrechamente conectadas en red para realizar intercambios, y muchos intercambios son monitoreados por servidores informáticos ubicados en la ciudad de Nueva York. Esto dificulta que los países que enfrentan sanciones oculten sus intercambios.RemesasLos gobiernos de EE.UU. y Francia imponen sanciones a Mali, una nación pobre de 20 millones de personas en África occidental sin litoral, que tiene una gran comunidad de migrantes en Francia. Las sanciones evitan que los migrantes simplemente transfieran dinero a sus hogares. Según un estudio de 2015 realizado por el Banco Mundial, la forma en que la mayoría de los malienses en Francia envían dinero a casa es por mensajería: alguien pone el dinero en un cinturón y toma un avión.Las sanciones no son la única arma financiera que Washington tiene en su arsenal. Para cinco países, Kirguistán y Tayikistán en Asia Central, Haití, Liberia y Nepal, las remesas del exterior equivalen a una cuarta parte o más de la producción económica de cada país, que tradicionalmente se mide como producto interno bruto.En 2018, las remesas a Haití superaron ligeramente el 30 por ciento del PIB. En 2016 y 2017, el porcentaje de remesas también fue muy cercano al 30 por ciento. En términos absolutos, esto equivale a aproximadamente a $60 millones a la semana.En los últimos tres años, cientos de miles de haitianos han salido a las calles para exigir cambios significativos en las políticas gubernamentales: precios de combustible más bajos, salarios mínimos más altos, apoyo a los agricultores. Si el gobierno haitiano intentara hacer cambios políticos a los que Washington se opone, Estados Unidos podría ralentizar el flujo de dinero o incluso detener las remesas. Este castigo significaría un daño inmediato y sustancial a la economía de Haití.El gobierno de Trump ha tratado de poner fin al estado de protección temporal para 50.000 haitianos que actualmente viven y trabajan en EE.UU. Poner fin al TPS no solo sería un desastre para las personas protegidas por él, sino también un gran golpe para la economía de Haití.Los días internacionales de acción contra las sanciones y la guerra económica se llevarán a cabo del 13 al 15 de marzo. Los organizadores dicen: “¡Las sanciones matan! ¡Las sanciones son guerra! ¡Termine las sanciones ahora!” Para más información: thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Gasoline bomb attack on popular daily’s headquarters

Such attacks on freedom of information cannot be tolerated. We hope a full and impartial investigation will identify the perpetrators and instigators of these criminal acts.”The two youths who carried out the 22 October attack entered the lobby one after the other at around 12:20 p.m., while a news conference on the municipal elections was being held in the building. After setting off one gasoline bomb inside the lobby, they threw the second as they fled.Security guards put out the fire, which was limited to an area of two square metres, but the thick black smoke it gave off spread through the building as far as the seventh floor and staff were evacuated. Five employees requested first aid for smoke inhalation but no one had to be hospitalized.The Moscow-based daily was previously targeted on 8 June, when a group of masked demonstrators tried to force their way into the building and threw smoke devices. They were chanting Ukrainian nationalist slogans and were brandishing signs that said “Ukrainians are not merchandise” and “Gusev in prison” (a reference to the newspaper’s editor, Pavel Gusev.)The attack followed articles in other media accusing Gusev of involvement in networks that procure Ukrainian prostitutes, in what Gusev said was a smear campaign orchestrated by parliamentary members of the ruling United Russia party. In its 16 March issue, the newspaper had published a scathing editorial about United Russia’s parliamentarians headlined “Political prostitution has changed sex.”No one has claimed responsibility for the 22 October attack but the newspaper says it is convinced that it is linked to this dispute and is openly blaming United Russia’s parliamentarians. The head of United Russia’s press service, Aleksandr Kurennoy, has threatened to bring a defamation suit against Gusev for blaming him by name.As well as being Moskovski Komsomolets’ editor, Gusev is a prominent personality in Russia and is a member of the consultative councils of several government institutions.Russia is ranked 148th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Journalists continue to be physically attacked in connection with minister’s use of force at state TV station in December

first_img Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Another employee of the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation TV broadcaster has been physically attacked in Colombo. Researcher Ranjani Aluthge was the victim of a knife attack this evening as she was returning home by bus. She has been hospitalised with a stab wound. ———————————————————-03.03.2008 – Journalists continue to be physically attacked in connection with minister’s use of force at state TV station in DecemberReporters Without Borders condemns two physical attacks on journalists on 27 February that seem to be linked to their coverage of a December incident in which labour minister Mervyn Silva stormed into the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation (SLRC), a state-owned television station, and assaulted its news director.“Physical attacks and acts of intimidation against SLRC journalists for objecting to Silva’s use of force is intolerable,” the press freedom organisation said. “How can one account for the fact that the authorities spend more time interrogating SLRC journalists than looking for those responsible for these attacks?”Four men armed with knives tried to attack Priyal Ranjith Perera at his home in Pitakotte, south of Colombo, in the evening of 27 February, but were forced to flee when neighbours intervened.
