PENNY DEL amongst the first organisations to provide their athletes and stakeholders with the vital skills required to protect themselves, their online accounts, and the integrity of their sport

 As use of social media amongst athletes and sporting figures continues to grow, Sportradar, a global supplier of sports integrity and education solutions, today launches its Social Media Integrity Education Service. The new program consists of a range of education tools for athletes and key sports stakeholders specifically relating to the topic of social media integrity.

Amongst the first sports organisations to sign up for the new service is the PENNY DEL, Germany’s leading ice hockey league. Through a series of bespoke webinars and workshops, the league’s clubs and their players will be provided with tutorials on the integrity risks that can arise when using social media, as well as guidance on how to protect themselves and the reputation of their clubs.  

Andrew Whittingham, Head of Education Integrity Services, Sportradar said: “The integrity and reputational risks which can arise when using social media are far-reaching. Not only can failing to act with integrity online put individual users at risk of harm, it can also pose threats to the integrity of teams or clubs, leagues or competitions, or sport as a whole.”

“We’re excited to be working closely with PENNY DEL and we commend the robust approach they’re taking to social media integrity education. By combining sessions to educate players, referees and officials simultaneously they are ensuring all participants in ice hockey understand the individual and collective responsibilities they have to maintain the highest integrity standards.”

Gernot Tripcke, General Manager at Deutsche Eishockey Liga GmbH & Co. KG, said: “We are delighted about the cooperation with Sportradar. The players of the clubs are all active on social media several times a day and naturally want to make their own accounts as professional as possible. The workshops will definitely be helpful in proceeding with the greatest possible security in the social media area. Equally, it’s about anti-manipulation, which has always been extremely important to us as a league.”

Challenges to the overall integrity of sport can come from a variety of different sources including from inappropriate online content and behaviour, the threat of inside information, match-fixing or betting corruption, and doping. Sportradar assists partners in tackling all of these issues and are the integrity partner of 80+ sports organisations from over 25 different sports including football, basketball, tennis, handball, volleyball, darts and many more.

Do Anti-Lag Apps Work For PUBG?

One of the things that most of the players complain about when playing PUBG or literally any of the competitive online multiplayer game is LAG. The lagging or delay in the action to be completed in the world of video games is caused by high-ping whether you are on a mobile network or connected to a Wi-Fi.

That is why it is very important for the players to have a more consistent internet connection which causes less lagging when playing the game due to lower ping amount. But getting an internet connection that is consistent enough to provide you with a lower ping throughout the game isn’t easy and that is why in today’s article we are going to figure out if the Anti-Lag apps actually work in reducing the ping for PUBG or any other multiplayer game. If you haven’t tried PUBG yet, we recommend looking for cheap PUBG key where you can find the best price that is available.

 

What Actually is LAG?

Before we actually find out if the Anti-Lag apps work, we need to know what LAG actually is, right? Well, it’s the time taken for a user’s behavior to have an impact in the game or app. As a result, for the best user experience, latency should be held to a minimum.

If you have ever played games like PUBG and CODM, you’d know exactly what it means, especially when it makes you rage quit the game, when your headshot misses the target by a mile only to get you killed.

 

Anti-Lag Apps 

There are a ton of applications out there claiming to reduce the ping drastically to provide better gaming experience but do they actually work? Well, there are certain possibilities as to when these apps can come in handy and actually be useful in reducing the ping and that is when your internet connection isn’t being consistent over a range of application or games in your mobile.

But in case of bad internet connection, these apps won’t be able to do anything at all and you’ll probably have to upgrade your internet connection or contact your Internet Service Provider for further assistance.

The way these applications works is finding the best DNS server based on your current location whenever you are playing a game or surfing through the internet, that’s what we refer to as DNS prefetching.

 

Why do Actually Need It?

Now if you are one of those PUBG fanatics, grinding for XP in a never ending battle against players all around the world, you’d know exactly how much difference the ping can make in deciding the fate of the game. A better ping rate can help you achieve those insane shots without having to worry about the enemy teleporting from one place to another.

And that is where these anti-lag apps come into play to help you drop the high ping but if you are struggling because of your skills, there is no shame in asking for help as these professional players can surely help you boost your account stats.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who is up for re-election on May 6, has pledged to ban gambling ads on the Tube.

In his election manifesto, he says he will expand the current ban on junk food ads on the London Underground to cover gambling ads as well.

The manifesto reads: “I’ve already banned body-shaming advertisements and advertisements for foods high in fat, salt and sugar on the TfL network because of their impact on the health of Londoners.

“Given the devastating way gambling addiction can destroy lives and families, I’ll instruct TfL to bring forward plans to extend the ban to harmful gambling advertisements on the network.”

Khan’s pledge comes amid increasing calls to restrict or ban gambling ads in the UK.
