Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 2nd March 2021 | By Conor Mulheir Apple faced a lawsuit in June last year after it was accused of being complicit in or guilty of promoting gambling products to children, due to the availability of games featuring loot box mechanisms on its App Store. Brazil’s Association of Centres for the Defence of Children’s and Adolescents’ Rights (ANCED) has filed seven lawsuits against major video game creators and platforms, seeking a ban on loot boxes. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter A total of seven lawsuits have been filed, seeking a ban on the use of loot boxes and BRL19.5bn (£2.45bn/€2.83bn/$3.41bn) in indemnities for “collective and individual moral damages”. Video gaming Regions: Brazil The lawsuits, filed with the District Court for Children and Youth in the Distrito Federal, home to Brazil’s central government, also extend to companies that host the games on their platforms, including Apple, Microsoft, Google and Sony.center_img Brazilian children’s association files lawsuits to ban loot boxes ANCED will file actions against companies including the Brazilian subsidiaries of Activision Blizzard, EA Games, Nintendo, Riot Games, Ubisoft and Valve Corporation, for the inclusion of loot box mechanisms in their video games. Other jurisdictions to consider banning the in-game mechanisms include the UK, Sweden, and most recently, Spain. EA was subsequently ordered to remove loot boxes from its popular football simulator Fifa in the Netherlands in October last year. Topics: Esports Legal & compliance Video gaming Legal The association also pointed out that jurisdictions such as the Netherlands and Belgium have already outlawed what it referred to as an “abusive practice”. It criticised the use of audiovisual accompaniments used when opening loot boxes, such as glowing on-screen animations and the emission of special sounds, which give the player a feeling of reward to which it argues children and adolescents are especially susceptible. ANCED argued that loot boxes constitute a gambling product according to Brazilian law, comparing the mechanisms used to roulette games and casino products. Email Addresslast_img read more

Requiem set for retired North Carolina Bishop Robert C. Johnson

first_img Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 By ENS staffPosted Jan 3, 2014 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service] A requiem Eucharist will be celebrated Jan. 11 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Durham, North Carolina, for retired North Carolina Bishop Robert C. Johnson.Johnson, 75, who was the 10th bishop of the diocese died early on Jan. 3.He served the diocese as bishop from 1994 to 2000. He came to the episcopate having served in the diocese for 30 years as a deacon and a priest, including 19 years as the rector of St. Luke’s, Durham, where he developed a reputation as a preacher and a pastor, according to a biography on the diocesan website.Born on July 18, 1938 in Georgia, he was raised a Southern Baptist and ordained at an early age.While at Yale Divinity School in the early 1960s, he came to seek Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church and was ordained by then-North Carolina Bishop Thomas Augustus Fraser in 1965.“As Bishop, Johnson encouraged the Diocese to engage in healthy and hospitable practices and to honor the ministries of all the baptized, including gay and lesbian members,” his diocesan biography says. “He spoke out strongly against capital punishment and racist behavior and on behalf of weak and marginalized members of society.”In response to growing controversies in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion, the diocese said, Johnson appealed to the unity of the church and mutual forbearance.Johns held what his biography calls “the solemn but painful duty” of serving on the House of Bishops’ Ecclesiastical Court which heard, and then dismissed, charges against a fellow bishop, Walter Righter. (Episcopal News Service coverage of that decision is here.Pained by what he saw as signs of a lack of charity at the 1998 Lambeth Conference, the biography says, he subsequently announced his retirement and called for the election of his successor in 2000.

Malone, Jr. says: An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Phyllis Gordon says: January 10, 2014 at 10:31 am His quiet demeanor and wry sense of humor always buoyed me whether sitting with him in council or in prayer. I will miss him and the spirit of conciliation with which he moved among members of the clergy, and when working with the Trustees or Standing Committee. May the Church Triumphant receive him in glory.

Chuck Harner says: Rector Bath, NC Robert Alves says: January 10, 2014 at 8:42 pm There’s an old expression that “he’s a good man”. Bob Johnson epitomized the literal meaning of the phrase – he was, in every sense, a “GOOD” man. He was the most decent, caring human being I ever meant or will be privileged to meet, and he was also the best week-to-week consistently excellent preacher I ever hope to know. God rest his soul.

When we moved to North Carolina in 1985, we knew we’d be shopping for an Episcopal church home. That first Sunday, we attended St. Luke’s, and we never went anywhere else. The intern at St. Luke’s at the time was Anne Hodges-Copple, now Bishop Suffragan after having served as Rector of St. Luke’s, and the Transitional Deacon was the remarkable Brooks Graebner, now Rector of St. Matthews in Hillsborough. Bob certainly provided a nurturing environment for all. We were honored to be invited to attend his consecration as Bishop. I love him and Connie, and I will miss him so. January 7, 2014 at 10:40 pm Phyllis, we’ve been so out of touch for so many years. How to reach you and Steve?

It was a privilege to serve on diocesan staff during his tenure. He demanded good work but respected the professionalism of those around him, tolerating differences of opinion and spending more time listening than pontificating. He was concerned about growing “congregationalism” and emphasized that the diocese is the basic unit of the church. He worked quietly to enhance the role of women and minorities. I attended the 1994 and 1997 General Conventions and the 1998 Lambeth Conference with him, observing his grief at the conflicts in the church over human sexuality. A man of great compassion and genuine humility, he spent much time responding personally to calls and letters from individuals, refusing to delegate to staff what he felt was the responsibility of the Bishop as shepherd of his flock. I do not know of anyone who was not saddened when he decided to retire after only six years as bishop, and we urged him to stay, but he seemed to feel that he was inadequate for the job. To the contrary, I shall always remember Bob Johnson, a truly Lincoln-like figure, and at times a “man of sorrows,” as the epitome of a true leader of his people. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Pittsburgh, PA January 7, 2014 at 10:32 pm Bishop Johnson — just “Bob” to all of us, since he despised titles — was a pastor and priest in the best sense of both words. He and Connie could not have led all of us in any better way than just to be themselves. Many of us remember him for his gifts from the pulpit, but he should be remembered most for his gifts as a friend and mentor to all. Gifts that should not be forgotten. Rest well, Bob.

In the past week, TCU gained five new recruits in its class.Wide receiver Savion Williams announced his decision to attend TCU on Wednesday morning after visiting TCU, Arkansas and SMU during the recruiting process. He also gained a late offer from Texas, but TCU was still able to secure the four-star receiver to round out its class. “When I finally put on that hat, I’m like, ‘It’s over,’” Williams said in an interview with KTAL. Williams joins a fellow top-30 receiver from Temple, Texas — wideout Quentin Johnston — in anchoring TCU’s offensive haul from the 2020 class.The Frogs also secured the nation’s top junior college quarterback, Stephon Brown. Brown will come to Fort Worth from Independence Community College.Patterson said in a press conference Wednesday that Brown was much-needed as other quarterbacks, such as Ohio State transfer Matthew Baldwin, recover from injuries. “We’ll only have one scholarship quarterback that we’ll be able to run [in] practice,” he said. “We needed to get some quarterbacks in.”Other notable signings include Kendre Miller, a three-star running back from Mount Enterprise, Texas, and transfers LB Dylan Horton and OT TJ Storment.Spring practice for TCU is set to begin within the next few weeks.
