WHAT HAS BC DONE TO HELP PROBLEM GAMBLERS?

 

In October of last year, BC Medical Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, stated that the BC government was not doing enough to curb problem gambling within our province. According to his report, Lower the Stakes, in 2010/2011 there were more than 170,000 problem gamblers in B.C. – but only 2,034 admissions to treatment programs. How did it problem gambling get so out of hand in British Columbia? Through January 27th to January 29th, the 2014 New Horizons Conference in Responsible Gambling is taking place at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The conference provides an opportunity for experts, treatment providers, preventions specialists and community representatives to listen, learn and discuss the latest research and practices around responsible gambling. Dr. Luke Clark is the inaugural director of the Centre for Gambling Research at UBC  and spoke at the conference today. The aim of the Centre for Gambling Research at UBC  is to reduce the harm caused by problem gambling and improve evidence-based gambling policy through studying the psychology and the neuroscience of gambling games and problem gamblers. Since Dr. Kendall’s report, has British Columbia made strides to lower the amount of problem gamblers in the province? How will the Centre for Gambling Research at UBC help to curb our provinces problem?

BITCOIN EXECUTIVE ARRESTED FOR MONEY LAUNDERING

 

The vice chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, a trade group promoting the adoption of the digital currency, has been charged by United States prosecutors for conspiring to commit money laundering by helping funnel cash to the illicit online drug bazaar known as Silk Road. Charlie Shrem, who had financial backing from the Winklevoss twins and is well known as one of the bitcoin’s biggest global promoters, was arrested on Sunday at John. F. Kennedy International Airport in New York and was released on $1 million bond. What does this high profile arrest  mean for the future of BitCoin?
