LIVE WORLD-WIDE TELETHON TO HELP FIGHT HOMELESSNESS AND BENEFIT THE LAS VEGAS RECUE MISSION DEBUTS LEADING UP TO THE BIG GAME

YourUpdateTV

Las Vegas Rescue Mission announced today that they will play host to the 1st Annual Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon on Wednesday, February 7th, 2024, from The Chapel, at their Las Vegas Rescue Mission location. This groundbreaking special event will be hosted by actor, musician, and former NFL player Julian Horton, and is sponsored by Door2Door Anywhere.com. All proceeds from the on-line telethon will go directly to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission as they have been recognized for the impactful work they are doing in the Las Vegas area. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://vimeo.com/910236902/36f170d396?share=copy The Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon is the brainchild of musician / songwriter and Executive Producer McKinley Horton who wanted to take his passion for fighting homelessness in the US to the next level and at the same time, honor one of his mentors, the late Alvin James. “Alvin James inspired me to look deeply into myself and my desire to help those in need it in any way I could, and with his recent passing last fall, I decided that the time was right “says Horton. The concept Mr. Horton came up with was to create a meaningful live event that not only includes an array of entertainers, but to also focus on the great work local non-profits are doing and try to shed light on their great work, the staff and volunteers that they have, and help them raise funds to benefit their programs and increase the impact they have on those who rely on them and the services they provide. “We all know how hard it is for local non-profits that deal with the homeless and other members of the underserved communities nation-wide face when it comes to financial support, so we decided to make sure 100 percent of all proceeds go directly to the local non-profit so that they can do what they do best which is help the people who need it.” Horton added. The result of that thinking was to honor the non-profit that is selected by The Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge selection committee, to coincide with a time of year where everyone is focused on an annual event and there is no event bigger than the annual big game. “As a sports fan and the father of a former NFL player, the committee and I came up with the idea of doing our telethon during the week before the big game in the city that the big game takes place” said Horton whose son, actor, musician and former NFLer, Julian Horton, will be one of the telethons host “so its so great to be partnering with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, who the committee felt deserved the spotlight, for the amazing work we got to see first hand when we visited them “ Las Vegas Rescue Mission CEO, Heather Engle is super supportive of the goals of the Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon and with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM ) as its partner, in what will now be an annual event with the 2nd Annual Telethon taking place in New Orleans site of the next Big Game, Engle and the staff at LVRM have also played a big role in getting the event off the ground. “Anytime we can get to share our mission statement with a wide audience we are always thankful and willing to help. This event will not only help people here in Las Vegas, but we hope to shed a brighter light on what we all know is as a major problem world-wide.We serve over 1,000 meals a day and have programs that not only deal with homelessness, but other important issues like addiction and mental health so we are very happy to be a part of this amazing event “ Engle noted Door2Door Anywhere.com, one of the world’s leading transportation companies, led by CEO Rattan Joea, is the sole sponsor of this years event and as Joea explains, the brand couldn’t be happier to be involved with the Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon for more than just brand exposure “For me and Door2Door Anywhere.com this isn’t about brand exposure, it’s about helping people, which has always been a part of my personal brand as well as our DOOR2Door Anywhere identity. We transport people all over the world and have a real worldview of the issues humanity is facing so to be able to play a role in helping the homeless and other underserved members of communities everywhere is vital to me..Our sponsorship of this 1st annual event is just the beginning of what we think will be a huge event going forward that will help people so we are all in and will be with the Telethon in Vegas this year, and then on to New Orleans next year, “ said Joea Host Julian Horton, (whose acting credits include a featured role in the hit film, National Champions, along with TV credits on Tyler Perry’s “Bruh”, Tough Love Atlanta, and others) didn’t need to be recruited by his father, his desire and passion to help change the lives of those less fortunate started at an early age. “ My passion has always been about helping those less fortunate than me …I was lucky, I’ve he had support throughout my life and I know how important it is to have that and when I see all the hurt, harm and pain going down on the streets these days as well as the struggle those without homes, support, and love face every minute of their lives…I just cant sit back and act like it isn’t there so I’m asking EVERYONE out there to tune in” For more information about the live stream and to donate go to www.vegasrescue.org and click on the events tab for THE ALVIN JAMES, APPROACHING LIFE UNDER THE BRIDGE TELETHON About the Las Vegas Rescue Mission: The Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM) was founded in 1970 by a pastor and six businessmen who had calling to help those who were homeless and hungry.

New Year's Resolutions Across the UK in 2024

Intelligiants Ltd

In the second month of 2024, many are still looking ahead, making plans for the remainder of the year, and working towards health, financial and career plans and goals. New Year's resolutions, with roots tracing back to historical and religious origins, have evolved into a universal catalyst for positive change. In a nod to historical customs, modern-day resolutions have evolved, focusing on self-improvement and prioritising a more balanced lifestyle. An analysis of these resolutions across generations and regions has been summarised by online bingo site, Heart Bingo, which has been looking at results from surveys on New Year’s resolutions in the UK for 2024 from reputable sources. Are there generational trends in making resolutions? Examining New Year's resolutions across generations reveals a notable pattern: the likelihood of making resolutions decreases with age. In 2023, 23% of Generation Z expressed their intent to set resolutions, while the figures gradually declined among older generations, reaching only six percent for those over 50. England has a clear focus on health-related resolutions “Doing more exercise or improving my fitness” was the top pick for poll takers in England, with 56% of respondents opting for this resolution. “Losing weight” came in second at 49% and third place “Eating healthier” (43%) summarises the results with a clear health focus for 2024 in England. Below is a comparison between England, Wales and Scotland: Doing more exercise or improving fitness: England 56%, Wales 71%, Scotland 52% Improving diet: England 43%, Wales 33%, Scotland 41% Cutting down on drinking: England 12%, Wales 23%, Scotland 8% Giving up smoking: England 6%, Wales 14%, Scotland 5% Regional Contrasts: Scotland Another popular focus area has historically been to “save more money” for the new year, which was the highest priority in Scotland, with as many as 61% picking this as their top resolution. There is no surprise that “Doing more exercise or improving fitness” is the second pick, although this is a bit lower when compared to the rest of the UK, but “Improving my diet” comes in at a third place, on par with the other nations. Wales: A Standout Commitment to Health in 2024 Wales emerges as a health-conscious nation, setting a record-high with 71% pledging to focus on fitness routines and workouts for 2024. When it comes to alcohol consumption and smoking habits, the Welsh population appears more committed to positive changes, with twice as many respondents planning to cut down on drinking or quit smoking compared to England and Scotland. Generations and Regions Behind Diverse Outcome for 2024 In summary, as the UK embraces 2024, New Year's resolutions reflect a blend of generational and regional priorities, showcasing a diverse tapestry of hopes and aspirations across the UK. This diversity underscores the dynamic nature of the UK, where individuals, influenced by their generational outlooks and regional contexts, contribute to a collective vision for self-improvement and positive change.

Danmarks Spillemyndigheder Strammer Tøjet: Kan ROFUS Holde Tempoen?

AM Europe

Danmark, kendt for progressive politikker, tager endnu engang en proaktiv holdning - denne gang mod spilregulering. I de senere år har det danske spillemarked oplevet en betydelig vækst, hvilket har fået regeringen til at implementere strengere foranstaltninger for at bekæmpe potentiel skade forbundet med aktiviteten. Disse nye regler rejser vigtige spørgsmål om deres effektivitet, og om de rammer den rette balance mellem spillerbeskyttelse og branchens frihed. Ny Spiller, Nye Regler: Ændringerne, der træder i kraft øjeblikkeligt, omfatter: Forhøjet Aldersgrænse: Online deltagelse i spil vil nu være begrænset til personer over 25 år, sammenlignet med de tidligere 18 år. Dette bringer Danmark i tråd med strengere regler i nabolande som Finland og Island. Markedsføringsbegrænsninger: Reklame- og kampagnaktiviteter for spilplatforme vil blive mødt med strammere restriktioner, især i dagtimerne og nær skoler. Dette sigter mod at begrænse eksponeringen for yngre demografiske grupper og sårbare individer. Indbetalingsbegrænsninger: Spillerne vil blive afhæntet på deres daglige og månedlige online spiludgifter, med mulighed for yderligere stramning baseret på individuelle risikoanalyser. Forbedret Overvågning: Spillemyndigheden vil modtage yderligere ressourcer til robust overvågning af online spilaktiviteter, identificere og adressere potentiel problematisk adfærd. "Spilleindustrien har oplevet en boom i de senere år, og med det følger et ansvar for at prioritere spillersikkerhed," udtaler en talsperson for Spillemyndigheden. "Disse nye regler er designet til at skabe en balance mellem at sikre et fair og tilgængeligt marked, mens vi beskytter enkeltpersoner mod potentiel skade." Er ROFUS Nok? Men ikke alle er overbeviste om reguleringernes effektivitet. Spil-uden-om-rofus.net, en dansk interessegruppe mod ludomani, udtrykker bekymring: "Mens vi hylder regeringens initiativ, mener vi, at disse foranstaltninger ikke formår at adressere kernespørgsmålet," udtaler Oliver Damgaard, talsmand for Spil-uden-om-rofus.net. "Fokus på aldersgrænser alene vil ikke adressere eksisterende ludomaner eller personer i risiko. Styrkelse af supportsystemer, fremme af ansvarlig spillebevidsthed og tackling af branchens aggressive markedsføringstaktikker er afgørende skridt, der ser ud til at mangle." Danmarks satsning på strengere spillekrav vil med sikkerhed blive fulgt nøje af andre lande, der står over for lignende udfordringer. Om disse foranstaltninger viser sig effektive i at dæmpe ludomani og sikre et ansvarligt marked, må tiden vise. Debatten mellem spillerbeskyttelse og branchens frihed vil sandsynligvis fortsætte med Danmark i spidsen af denne udviklende samtale. ROFUS: Din vej til kontrol over dit spil: Forståelse af reglerne i Danmark Spiller du måske lidt for meget? Eller vil du bare tage en pause fra spilverdenen? Så er ROFUS et værktøj, der kan hjælpe dig med at tage kontrol over dit spil. Men hvad præcis er ROFUS, og hvordan fungerer reglerne i Danmark? ROFUS står for Register Over Frivilligt Udelukkede Spillere. Det er en database administreret af Spillemyndigheden, hvor du frivilligt kan registrere dig, hvis du ønsker at udelukke dig selv fra at spille online-gambling og på fysiske casinoner i Danmark. Her er hvad du skal vide om ROFUS-reglerne: Hvem kan registrere sig?: Alle over 18 år kan registrere sig i ROFUS. Du kan vælge at udelukke dig selv midlertidigt (minimum 24 timer) eller permanent. Hvordan registrerer man sig?: Registrering foregår nemt og sikkert via dit NemID på ROFUS.nu. Hvad dækker udelukkelsen?: Når du er registreret i ROFUS, er du udelukket fra alle online-gamblingsplatforme med dansk licens samt landbaserede casinoner og fysiske bettingterminaler i Danmark. Det gælder eksempelvis spil som poker, roulette, spilleautomater og sportsvæddemål. Siden oktober 2023 omfatter udelukkelsen også fysiske bookmakere i Danmark. Hvad sker der, hvis du prøver at spille, mens du er registreret?: Spillemyndigheden informerer spiludbyderne om din registrering i ROFUS. Hvis du forsøger at spille, mens du er udelukket, vil din adgang blive nægtet. Kan man fortryde sin registrering?: Ja, du kan til enhver tid ophæve din registrering i ROFUS via dit NemID på ROFUS.nu.
