💱In February, Andrew Wilkie, an independent Australian politician, published leaked documents from two whistle-blowers at Australian Leisure and Hospitality showing that the company had been secretly collecting data on frequent gamblers, including their favorite sporting teams, their relationship statuses and when they had the most money to spend.

💱Gordon Cairns, the chairman of Woolworths, said that the company was “very concerned” about the findings and that the matter was being reviewed by external auditors.

💲A study conducted by Dr. Rintoul comparing two regions outside Melbourne found that the less wealthy one had twice as many pokie machines, and more than three times the per capita losses.

💲“The people who can least afford to be losing large sums of money are losing the most,” she said.

💲Dr. Rintoul described the casino-like methods used by venues to maximize revenue, including rewarding patrons with free food and drinks, and hiring part-time models as wait staff.

📍 Other community mainstays also operate machines. In Victoria, the heartland of Australian Rules Football, 90 percent of Australian Football League teams operate their own pokies, generating more than 93 million Australian dollars in revenue last year.

📍Pokies are regulated on a state-by-state basis, instead of by the federal government. Western Australia is the only state or territory that bans the operation of pokies outside casinos.

📍State budgets are increasingly made up of revenues from the machines, and legalized gambling, including from pokies, accounted for 7.7 percent of total tax revenues for Australian states and territories in 2016. In some parts of Australia, gamers can deposit 7,500 Australian dollars into a machine in one transaction, and can lose more than a thousand dollars per hour.

💶“Often, Australians don’t realize it,” she said of the ubiquity of the machines. “It’s like being a fish in water.”

💶Their operators are often prominent community entities: Woolworths, one of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, is the biggest operator of pokies in the country, controlling about 12,000 machines through its majority stake in the Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group, a large company that encompasses bars, restaurants and wagering.

💶Though the Woolworths Group doesn’t distinguish liquor sales from gambling revenues in its annual report, estimates suggest that it pulls more than 1 billion Australian dollars, or $770 million, in revenue from the machines each year

💰The electronic gaming machines are similar to slot machines seen in casinos elsewhere. Pokies aren’t the only major form of gambling in Australia — casinos account for around 20 percent of gambling losses here — but they remain by far the most profitable for operators and most damaging for gamblers, gaming opponents say. And they permeate small towns with a prominence that is unmatched around the world

💰In Australia, the pubs, clubs and hotels that house the machines usually resemble typical English pubs, replete with a bar and dining area but with the addition of a dedicated gaming room.

⚂Australia’s gambling losses per adult are more than double those in the United States, and around 50 percent higher than second-placed Singapore, according to H2 Gambling Capital, an analytics company.

⚂As those figures swell, a public war is brewing between venue operators and people against gambling, with each trying to win the hearts and minds of state governments that rely on revenue from the machines.

🔱 In pockets of suburbia all across Australia, electronic gambling machines known as pokies await their many customers in pubs, hotels and sports clubs, as common a fixture as A.T.M.s in a shopping mall.

🔱But the unremarkable machines contribute to an extraordinary level of gambling. Government statistics show that they account for more than half of individual Australians’ annual gambling losses, a gargantuan 24 billion Australian dollars, or about $18.4 billion. On a per-capita basis, Australians lose far and away the most in the world: more than 1,200 Australian dollars every year (or $920).

🥅Djokovic may be listed as an entrant in the star-studded field, but tournament organisers aren’t counting on his presence in California. He is absent from all promotional material and official tournament communication regarding the entry list, indicating not even tournament organisers are sure he will take part.

🥅The US has required foreign travellers to be fully vaccinated since November and must provide proof before setting foot on their flight, leaving Djokovic with little choice but to be fully vaccinated if he wants to take part in the American hardcourt swing

🏸 Djokovic’s biographer, Daniel Muksch, believes the Serbian star will be driven to get the jab after watching Rafael Nadal claim the record outright in Melbourne for men’s grand slam wins, and he has taken the first step towards a return by entering the ATP 1000 tournament, which he has won five times.

🏸The world No.1 may still withdraw from the tournament, but his entry confirmation is the strongest sign yet he will change his vaccination status in pursuit of more majors.

Seems to me that the Effort that people put into things is never what is realised. We have so many of us who are differently abled and have to work harder to manage some of the most basic of things. Participation awards are so often just handed out while the reality of participating should be the fun thing in an of itself. The reality of awards for the 'best' is based on a preconceived premise of what is recognized as important and perhaps that is not what we should always be remarking upon? In some cultures others remarking on the things you contribute to the community by simply being you, is the important piece. Do the awards really do this ? I wonder.
Hey sweetie - wishing you great success on your BearTiger mission :-)
