He has extensive business experience, having worked in EU and Asia.Aluwani Mukhudwana is Sales Manager for the African region at NSoft. He has worked with current and future market leaders within the industry. Especially in high-growth markets such as Africa, understanding new technologies will be essential to scalable success and differentiation in an increasingly crowded market.This is the view of Davor Konjevod, regional sales manager at NSoft, who recently spoke with iGaming Business about the market activity in Africa.Konjevod cites figures from Doing Business 2019, which captured a record of 314 regulatory reforms between June 2, 2017, and May 1, 2018. A total of 107 reforms were in the economies of Sub-Saharan Africa – a number NSoft feels is indicative of the fast pace the region requires.“We’re traditionally very strong in Central and Eastern Europe, but the fastest growth we’re experiencing in Africa’s large market and we are fully aware of the huge potential that this region has.” Africa’s rising opportunitiesAdding to the conversation. Aluwani Mukhudwana, regional sales manager at NSoft says that sportsbook has without a doubt been a key point of interest for African players, and NSoft has worked closely with its customers the world over to ensure they meet the demand.“Even though the sportsbook is very popular, and will continue to grow, all aspects of the African industry will continue to register a growth of the mobile and online channels and NSoft is closely monitoring the market movements,’’ Davor adds.For NSoft’s self-managed pre-match application, Mukhudwana explains that using Betradar’s MTS allows small and medium customers to focus on marketing, providing more certainty in terms of profit and reducing operational costs in the meantime.“Once they get to the point they are big enough that they want to take risk management in their own hands, we provide the option to continue working with us through the self-managed application. As an alternative of printed pre-match betting offers, NSoft has developed on-screen rotating visualisations with GUI-based configuration depending on different and specific clients’ needs,” adds Mukhudwana.‘’Africa’s low internet speed coverage represents one of the main issues for betting businesses around the continent, so NSoft adjusted its products for the satellite stream solution, which is currently in the testing phase by selected clients’’, adds Konjevod.Omnichannel presence as the imperativeNSoft creates interactive games to be played in a variety of settings, from users’ phones and computers to retail terminals and betting shops. The games and apps are developed in-house and licensed to providers and retailers across the world.“Our games can be easily integrated into other platforms and we can customise our games to clients in their native language across the 30-plus countries we serve,” said Davor.Additionally, NSoft developed Seven, a platform for managing core betting business operations. Aulwani says this means that betting operators who were previously juggling a plethora of games and sportsbooks from different providers can now consolidate everything on NSoft’s platform.Explaining Seven’s power, Aluwani emphasises: ‘’Seven includes modules, applications, and APIs that serve as a foundation for stacking products and offering them to their operator clients. To simplify implementation and lower the client’s investment in new hardware needed for retail channels, NSoft has developed a pre-installed mini PC that satisfies all client requirements to run NSoft Seven products.“Nevertheless, in the internet era, web and mobile betting solutions have become very popular, demanding multiple payment methods for players, so NSoft is developing a service that aims to implement easy integration of payment methods into the Seven platform, enabling the integration of more than 200 different payment methods.’’NSoft’s research shows that players in the African market like to combine web and retail channels. To meet this demand, NSoft’s prepare a bet feature enables the players to prepare their bets on the web, generate code, and with that code, they can easily do their pay-in in retail shops. This way, bet generation becomes faster, simplifying operators’ job and accelerating in-shop operations.Additionally, NSoft’s web-hosted 7Shop is another upgrade designed upon Africa’s market needs. Due to the very low hardware and software resources in African shops, NSoft has developed this web-based cashier application that requires only a web browser solution to run. Innovation in developing marketsImproving the existing features and adding new developments in order to satisfy the market needs is imperative, especially in developing markets, and Nsoft has a company-wide aspiration to tackle the new and challenging. This is how the idea of their new product, Vision. was born.The idea behind Vision is to use CCTV systems for more than just surveillance, not only keeping the premises safe, but by doing so understanding customer behavior at any given moment. Ultimately, that’s just one small bit of a complete smart package.Aluwani explains: “Simply put, Vision is an AI video management software created with the user experience as a top priority providing support for easy-to-use tools for feature management, analysis, and utilisation of video data and image data.’’Features such as facial recognition, as well as age and gender prediction, enable software users to identify their customers in relation to their business.Technologies such as this will continue to shape operators’ approaches to developing markets such as Africa, providing security and stability as new opportunities arise. High-growth markets such as Africa require rapid scalability and differentiation, says NSoft Email Address Tech & innovation Topics: Tech & innovation 27th September 2019 | By Josephine Watson Africa – when potential translates to demand Regions: Africa

This included theft, withholding pension or benefits, and exerting pressure around wills, property or inheritance.Two per cent said they were victims of a scam involving giving money to a bogus charity and 2% believed they may have been a victim of this kind of scam. 3% disclosed that they were persuaded to contribute beyond their means to churches or charities and a further 1% suspect that this had occurred.Chief Charity Commissioner for Northern Ireland (CCNI), Tom McGrath, said the COPNI report was a sharp reminder to everyone of the need to undertake some simple checks when giving to charity.Mr McGrath said:“While incidents of fraudulent fundraising may be rare, they do occur, and they can have a devastating impact on people who believe they are giving to a good cause, only to find they have been scammed. They also have a damaging impact on public trust and confidence in the charity sector as a whole”.Mr McGrath said it was important that everyone understands the basic checks they can take to ensure they are giving to a bona fide charity and what they can do if they believe they are contributing beyond their means.Amongst the top ten giving tips provided by CCNI was to check if the charity was registered, try not to feel pressure to give a higher amount than you want, don’t give in to persistent requests for funding and to ask how the donation will be spent.The report, Financial Abuse of Older People in Northern Ireland: The Unsettling Truth, can be downloaded in PDF from COPNI.
Nadja TesichPolitical activist, author, poet and filmmaker Nadja Tesich was born in Užice, Serbia, Yugoslavia, in 1939 and died Feb. 20 in New York City. She lived her life outspoken and full of righteous rage at the enormous destruction of U.S. wars and the glaring injustice and inequality that surrounded her. She felt collective pain personally, even physically, and identified with defenseless people targeted on the other side of the world or someone passing her on a busy street.Nadja came to all events wearing always a splash of red — whether a red beret, red scarf or red jacket, or bearing red carnations. She loved Cuba and often said it was the only place she felt she could breathe.At a memorial for Nadja on May 29, her family, friends and political comrades expressed the rainbow of ways she touched them. We remember her for her political activism, starting from defending the National Liberation Front of Vietnam in the 1960s.From the beginning days of the International Action Center, Nadja was part of IAC life. She had fought against U.S. wars in Vietnam, coups in Congo, Chile and Greece; she was active in the mass demonstrations against the Iraq War in 1991 and again in 2003.Nadja was even more intense in our common work attempting to defend her homeland, Yugoslavia, from an unrelenting assault by the imperialist governments of Western Europe and the United States. Tragically for most of the peoples of the Balkans, these years ended with the imposed disintegration of a once-sovereign socialist country into a half-dozen mini-states, now neocolonies of the NATO powers. At meetings, teach-ins and major rallies on Yugoslavia, Nadja was a driving force and a tortured soul of everything we did.Tesich, whose family emigrated from Yugoslavia to the U.S. when she was a young teenager, has had four novels published: “Shadow Partisan” in 1996, “Native Land” in 1998, “To Die in Chicago” in 2010 and “Far from Vietnam” in 2012.It is particularly striking to read “Shadow Partisan” and “To Die in Chicago” one after the other. The novels contrast on a close and personal level a hopeful coming-of-age in newly socialist Yugoslavia in the late 1940s with a cleareyed immigrant’s view of U.S. racism and a consumer-driven society without a future in the 1950s.While studying in Paris in the 1960s, she worked in film as an actor and assistant to Eric Rohmer for the documentary, “Nadja in Paris.” She taught film at Brooklyn College in New York.We should end with Nadja speaking in her own words, from her chapter in one of the IAC’s books, “NATO in the Balkans”:“I was born in Serbia and have returned there every year, and I have also lived in France and in New York City most of my adult life. And most of my adult life, as a participant and as observer, I have opposed U.S. aggressions, murders, embargoes, wars. Some hidden, others less so.Everything the U.S. does elsewhere — chaos and destabilization — it does equally at home. … It’s an amoral, mechanical monster whose heart is the beat of Wall Street. Up and down it goes. More and more it needs and it’s never enough. … Still it can be resisted. I remain optimistic. Machines break, after all.”She often signed her messages “For our struggles now and for tomorrows that will sing!”Nadja is survived by her son, Stefan; her sister-in-law, Rebecca; her grandchildren, Cole and Kaia;, her niece, Amy; and her many comrades in the struggle for peace, justice and socialism.Nadja Tesich ¡Presente!This article was adapted from IAC co-director Sara Flounder’s presentation at the memorial on May 29.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution July 29, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Help for blogger who lost job and home for criticising chemical company News February 6, 2021 Find out more to go further Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Help for blogger who lost job and home for criticising chemical companyReporters Without Borders is helping Tamer Mabrouk, a blogger based in the Egyptian city of Port Said who was fined more than 6,000 euros in May for allegedly defaming an Egyptian company, Trust Chemical Industries, by posting entries in his blog (http://elhakika.blogspot.com) about its dumping of untreated waste water. “I wanted to create a blog, above all to denounce corruption in Egypt,” Mabrouk said. “It was an attack on President Mubarak in Port Said that made me start the blog, because there was big difference between the official story and what actually happened (…) I then denounced the abuses by Trust Chemical Industries and the problems quickly started. The police arrested the owner of the company that sold me the website. The site is nowadays under surveillance by the police, who can block it and ban it whenever they like”“Then I was threatened with eviction from the apartment I was renting. My wife and I were forced to move because we were put under a lot of pressure. As I had been fired by Trust Chemical Industries, I could no longer pay my rent.”The funds provided by Reporters Without Borders have helped Mabrouk and his family to cope for a few months with the problems caused by his blog posts and his refusal to be intimidated. As well as losing his job with Trust Chemical Industries, he was ordered to pay a fine that is 100 times the average monthly wage. And now he is finding it hard to get a new job because of his reputation for being outspoken.“None of this changes my desire to continue blogging, despite the threats I get,” Mabrouk said. “It is not a personal matter, it is a fight for freedom of expression. It is also a way for me to defend my country against completely unscrupulous companies.” News Organisation EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Egypt February 1, 2021 Find out more News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison News Video in Arabic and French : January 22, 2021 Find out more
March 18, 2021 Find out more A closure order issued by the Tehran public prosecutor on 17 January was confirmed today by the Committee for Press Authorization and Surveillance (an offshoot of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance), which said it was withdrawing the newspaper’s permit for “insulting Islam.”Mardom Emroz had published only 19 issues. As soon as its launch was announced, conservative media, especially those that support the Revolutionary Guards, began pressing for its closure.They included the ultra-conservative daily Kayhan, Supreme Leader Ali Khameini’s mouthpiece, which also called for the arrest of its journalists, including editor Mohammed Ghoochani.According to Ghoochani, he and his staff decided on the “I am Charlie” front-page before Charlie-Hebdo came out with its latest issue with a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed on the front cover.“This is not the first time that the conservative media, and especially the extremist Kayhan, have ordered a newspaper’s closure and that the judicial authorities and Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance have then carried out the order,” said Reza Moini, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran-Afghanistan desk.“The strategy of these hate media compounds the arbitrary behaviour of government officials, who already have many repressive judicial mechanisms at their disposal for silencing independently-minded media.”One of the world’s most repressive countries as regards freedom of information, Iran is ranked 173rd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
