Affiliate marketing giant Better Collective has seen revenue almost double in the first quarter of 2019, driven by record numbers of new depositing customers (NDC) in the period.Revenue was up 97% year-on-year to €14.9m (£12.8m/$16.7m), beating company expectations and performing particularly well compared to Q1 2018, which Better Collective noted was an especially weak quarter.Revenue share deals accounted for 72% of total revenue, with 18% coming from cost per acquisition, and 10% from other sources. More than 116,000 NDCs were signed up over the period, a 147% year-on-year rise, and setting a new quarterly record.Unlike many of its competitors, Better Collective said the performance of its Swedish business had been satisfactory in the first quarter, aided by the €30m acquisition of Ribacka Group in December 2018.“We expect that the market will continue to find a new balance, and in the long run, we expect Sweden to be an important and valuable market for online sports betting,” Better Collective chief executive Jesper Søgaard (pictured) said.During Q1, Better Collective allocated significant resources to the development of new markets such as the US, as well as establishing new subsidiaries in the UK and Poland to support increased activities in each market. This, it noted, had led to an increase in expenses for the period.Costs for the quarter rose 53% to €8.4m, driven by increases in revenue-related expenses to €1.4m, with staff costs rising to €4.2m and other external expenses to €2.7m. This left an operating profit before amortisation and special items of €6.5m, a 212% year-on-year rise.Once amortisation and impairment charges of €1.2m and special items of €87,000 – related to M&A activity – were stripped out, the operating profit stood at €5.2m, up 230% from Q1 2018. After financial income and expenses and income tax, Better Collective’s net profit for the quarter was €3.7m, up 225%.Looking ahead to the rest of 2019, Søgaard said Better Collective would look to shore up its US position by developing new products and adjusting current offerings for the US market.“While the pace of regulation is uncertain, we see progress and we are preparing for the next states to regulate online sports betting and casino,” he said. “On this note, Pennsylvania has decided to open for online casino as from July 15, 2019, and possibly online sports betting as soon as May.“We continue the efforts to find new business from the organic approach as well as through possible collaborations and acquisitions.”Yesterday the company also announced that it would pay the final deferred payment of €6m for its Ribacka acquisition would be paid in 896,727 ordinary shares in Better Collective.Its short term growth targets, for the 2018-20 period remain unchanged, with Better Collective aiming for annual growth of 30-50%, driven by M&A and double-digit organic growth. However it noted that 2019 results were likely to beat this target, driven by strong underlying organic growth in key performance indicators such as NDCs, player deposits and gross gaming activity.

Some majors choose to intern with homeless agencies. These interns help people get on housing lists, search for more housing options, serve as case managers and deal with crisis intervention.Many of these agencies are non-profits that need the extra help from students, especially since COVID-19 has compounded the homeless issue and made outreach teams within many of these agencies smaller.“Samaritan House allows me to be super hands-on, which is awesome and empowers me to just jump into it,” said Erin Vandertie, a senior social work and political science major who interns with Samaritan House. “I think nonprofits, in general, are just understaffed, so, in a bittersweet way, that has allowed me to truly be a part of the team and actually make a difference in people’s lives.”Vandertie is a case manager for five clients at Samaritan House. She is their “go-to call” when they need help. “I get them the resources they need; I help them sign up for benefits and I make sure that they are in their house and that things with their landlords are going okay,” Vandertie said.TCU social work majors dedicate 16 hours a week to field internships.

Some interns work with homeless agencies in Tarrant County.During their junior year, social work students meet with the director of the field education program to talk about their interests, strengths and where they want to grow. Students are then paired with an organization that fits their needs.“The beautiful thing about TCU is that we have great connections around the community. And honestly, throughout the DFW area,” said Vandertie. “I have some friends who drive to Dallas for their internships, and I have friends who are right down the street, so we’re truly all over.”No matter the internship social work students hold, many participate in 1-1 counseling with clients. Some interns are medical social workers who intern at hospitals.

Some work with children at child placing agencies. (Photo courtesy of TCU ROXO, Maddie Cole)Students find a way to balance their course load with their social lives to dedicate at least 16 hours a week to the internship.“Our focus in the social work department is really for the students to understand that we are part of a community,” said the director of Field Education at TCU, Dr. Lynn Jackson. “We want them to have hands on experience actually meeting with people and doing activities.”On the jobTCU social work interns help get homeless individuals into permanent housing and work with landlords to find more housing options for homeless individuals. Before they can house these individuals, they have to connect with them. “We go out and find people in their camps; whether it be in the woods, or under a bridge or in their vehicle, we work with them to get them into our homeless system,” said Tony Wilson, the director of mobile assessment and outreach at DRC Solutions.By doing homeless outreach, interns help people who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness get onto a housing list.Photo- A member of DRC Solutions outreach team adds a homeless individual into the housing database.“We’re just waiting on them to come get us,” said a homeless woman who did not want to be named. She has been experiencing unsheltered homelessness since 2006. While she waits, she does what she can to get by. “You hear my generator. And my tent has built-in lights. It’s an instant tent, but it has lights built into it that are powered by 4D batteries.” Currently, she is working with DRC’s outreach team in hopes of being housed. Members of the DRC Solutions outreach team visit camps to get homeless individuals on the housing list.

Individuals are prioritized based on how long they have been experiencing homelessness, their health, age, if they are a veteran, if they have children and other factors that help determine their vulnerability. They are then added to the housing database. After adding an individual to the database, the DRC outreach team regularly checks in on their clients to help them meet their immediate needs and to verify their ongoing homelessness. They also help clients gather critical documents to have access to basic things such as a job and an apartment. Once the individual becomes eligible for housing, the team finds them and connects them with their housing program. “It is not a simple thing just to get someone from the streets into a house. There are so many steps, so many obstacles,” said Vandertie. The social work program teaches students how to ethically deal with different obstacles students may face. “We can’t go and tell someone how to improve their lives. And we can’t, we can’t tell someone like what they’re doing wrong and what they should be doing, because that’s not what social work is about,” said Uriel Huerta, a master of social work degree student and former DRC Solutions intern. “It’s about meeting someone where they are, showing them where they can go and helping them get to where they want to be.”On the job, students apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world situations, but interns also make an impact on TCU’s campus. “I think what’s great about the social work department and the idea of us going out into the community is that we can bring it back to the community,” Vandertie said.In the classroomSocial work majors not only learn how to apply their skills in the field, but also try to understand what’s behind the issues they help address.Homelessness is a consequence of bigger social problems, Huerta said.The TCU social work program teaches students about macro social work which looks at social problems from a broader viewpoint to help find resolutions.“It’s important as social workers, not just to be doing the one-on-one kinds of skills, but the larger macro policy type of work,” Jackson said.In Tarrant County, the cost of housing and rental units continues to rise while wages do not.“So that’s where the issue starts. I think that’s the fundamental problem,” said Wilson.There are less affordable housing units available than the amount of people who need them. According to the Tarrant County 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, 87,740 of all homeowners in the urban county consortium are severely cost burdened, spending 50% or more of their income on housing.“Being there on East Lancaster, here in Fort Worth, where you see all these people who are just sleeping outside, sleeping on sidewalks, this is a result of something more than just not being able to budget, or not being able to get help with a substance use disorder, or having bad family relationships,” Huerta said. “All of this is this just kind of speaks to society in general.”Household incomes for renters are varied with the majority of households in the extremely low and low income brackets. Only 29% of renters in Tarrant County have household incomes well above the HUD adjusted median family income level.Social work interns learn about macro social work which focuses on how to address issues upstream.Social work interns learn about macro social work which focuses on how to address issues upstream.“We need to address other issues that impact homelessness,” said Megan Morris, a TCU social work alum who did her internship with Tarrant County Homeless Coalition. “Continuing to provide emergency shelter, or housing vouchers or food stamps will only meet people’s needs for right now. We really need to address the reasons why people are struggling with these issues.”Having more prevention services and not just intervention when someone is already experiencing homelessness is a key step in helping the issue, said Huerta.To learn more about the current state of homelessness in Tarrant County click below:TopBuilt with Shorthand Haeven Gibbonshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haeven-gibbons/ Life in Fort Worth
to go further Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff RSF_en News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn of the release yesterday of the Australian freelance journalist Austin Mackell two days after he was arrested.He was detained in Mahalla, 120 km north of Cairo, with his translator Aliya Alwi, an American student, Derek Ludovici, and a trade unionist, Kamal Al-Fayyoumi. The two foreigners were immediately taken into custody, then released reportedly after a visit by the U.S. consul, whereupon they were escorted to Cairo pending a fuller investigation. The journalist’s lawyer, Sayed Fathi, said his client was unlikely to be deported.As we understand it, Mackell was covering the start of a general strike in Mahalla on 11 February, the first anniversary of the departure of former President Hosni Mubarak. Authorities accused him of inciting protests and paying workers to expand their strikes and demonstrations.Mackell has been particularly interested in the labour unrest that has underpinned anti-government protests in Egypt. His articles and blog, “The Moon under water”, which record the events of Egypt’s revolution, have irritated the military leadership, which has yet to pass the baton to the newly-elected civilian politicians. Jess Hills, the Middle East correspondent of the Australian newspaper Global Mail, described the circumstances of Mackell’s arrest on ABC News. She said the military rulers were nervous about the strikes that began a year ago. The transitional military government, which has been running the country since Mubarak’s fall, is fearful of the spread of labour unrest, while at the same time there is growing anger in the streets. This supports the argument that the journalist could have been framed by the authorities, anxious to stifle coverage of the popular discontent.Reporters Without Borders deplores the arrest, despite the fact that the journalist was released. We condemn this trumped-up arrest which is an infringement of freedom of information and we recall that Egypt has fallen 39 places 166th in the word press freedom index.

News Organisation February 1, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Bomb explodes in front of daily’s offices Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela VenezuelaAmericas Follow the news on Venezuela In a letter to Minister of Interior Relations and Justice Ramón Rodriguez Chacin, RSF condemned the 31 January 2002 bomb attack on the daily “Así es la noticia”. “The president’s verbal threats against media outlets that criticise him have resulted in creating an auspicious climate for violence,” noted RSF Secretary-General Robert Ménard. “We ask that you condemn this attack carried out by alleged government supporters,” he added. RSF also asked the minister to ensure that those responsible be identified and brought to trial.According to information collected by RSF, on 31 January, a bomb exploded in front of “Así es la noticia” daily’s offices, in Caracas, causing damage to the building’s facade. The bomb was thrown by two individuals who were riding a motorcycle. Prior to the attack, the daily’s management received an anonymous threatening telephone call, during which the newspaper was accused of having an editorial stance critical of the government. After the explosion, pamphlets accusing “Así es la noticia” journalists of carrying out an anti-governmental campaign and serving the “oligarchy” were found near the daily’s offices. The pamphlets bore the signature of the MRT, a previously unknown organisation.”Así es la noticia” newspaper is headed by Ibeyise Pacheco, who is also lead-writer for “El Nacional” newspaper. On 7 January, “El Nacional” was threatened by some of President Chávez’s supporters. The two newspapers belong to the same media group. On 30 January, Pacheco pointed to the existence of a document outlining the alleged relations between Venezuelan government officials and members of the Colombian guerilla.The government has taken measures to protect “Así es la noticia” and “El Nacional” newspapers and the Globovisión television station. Police forces have been assigned to patrol around the three media outlets’ offices. RSF condemned the 31 January 2002 bomb attack on the daily “Así es la noticia”.

He was known for being critical of some local figures.”Any journalist in the south of the country who writes about corruption and nepotism will feel in danger if the police do not shed light on this case and consider all possible motives,” the organization said in a letter to interior minister Bhokin Bhalakula, asking to be kept informed of the results of the investigation.Saetang was shot twice in the back as he was riding his motorcycle down a street near a market on the morning of 14 February. The gunman fled on a motorcycle driven by an accomplice. Saetang died instantly.The press freedom organization SEAPA reported that the victim’s wife, Suchin Saetang, told the police the murder could be linked to various reports that had been published in the Had Yai Post about corruption and abuse of authority by some local politicians. She said her husband had received anonymous telephone threats.Aged 54, Saetang was sometimes scathing in his criticism of local political practices. Editing the Had Yai Post was his only known job.
