Gambling on repression...

Australian gambling venues introduce facial recognitions supposedly to keep out self banned gamblers

Link Here23rd October 2022
Australian gambling venues are planning to install facial recognition technology in all pubs and clubs in the state of New South Wales. The technology is supposedly aimed at keeping people with self-imposed gambling bans from gambling.

The ClubsNSW and the Australian Hotels Association NSW said a facial recognition surveillance system will be installed in all hotels and clubs in NSW next year. The system will scan the faces of everyone entering the gaming area and check them against a list of people who have registered in the self-exclusion system.

Close to 100 clubs are already using this technology and the feedback is that it works, said ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis.

Greens MP Cate Faehrmann criticized the move:

The NSW government has lost its mind if it thinks people want pubs and clubs to have self-managed facial recognition tech. This is as terrifying as it is absurd.



A low yield route...

British Airways will not be returning to Bangkok until 2023

Link Here27th July 2022
News emerged on social media to the effect that British Airways would be extending its longstanding suspension of its London-Bangkok route until 2023.

Until now the official suspension date had been until October 2022. This seemed logical as the peak season for travel to Thailand is during the winter months.

The only direct option from London Heathrow is currently Thai Airways. Eva Air's fifth-freedom service remains suspended according to its website display.
