Brazilian football star Pele dies aged 82, family confirms South Wales Argus
His death was confirmed by family on social media.
He had been battling colon cancer since 2021, with a medical report just before Christmas showing that he required care for cardiac and renal dysfunction.
He had been admitted to the Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein in Sao Paulo on November 29.
Earlier this week, Pele’s daughter, Kely Nascimento, had confirmed members of his family would spend Christmas in the hospital with him.
On Saturday, she posted a picture on Instagram which showed her sitting next to one of Pele’s sons, Edinho, and two of his children at the hospital.
“He (Edson) is here,” Kely Nascimento wrote alongside the picture, adding in a hashtag “I will not be leaving, nobody will take me out of here.”
Pele appeared on the global scene as a 17-year-old at the 1958 World Cup, helping Brazil to the first of their record five successes.
Injury affected Pele’s contribution to the 1962 and 1966 finals, but he returned to lead Brazil to a third triumph, this time in Mexico in 1970 as part of what is widely regarded as the greatest international team of all time.
Officially, Pele scored 757 goals in 831 games during a career from 1957 to 1977, although club Santos claim his tally was closer to 1,000.

Police discover 1,000 cannabis plants in empty pub Wales Online
Police have discovered 1,000 cannabis plants in an empty pub. Officers from South Wales Police were seen outside the Rhondda Hotel in Cymmer, Rhondda, on Thursday and have confirmed they found cannabis plants in production at the empty building.
People in the area reported seeing a large police presence outside the pub, which closed its doors in June 2022, throughout the day on Thursday. A spokesman for South Wales Police has confirmed that officers discovered 1,000 plants on the premises after being alerted to the crime by Western Power Distribution.
A local resident who asked not to be named said: “I saw what looked like a forensic officer walk out of the pub. I’ve passed a couple of times today and seen different large police vehicles there. Workmen have been digging up the road outside so I wonder if they smelt anything.”

Other local people reported seeing large yellow plastic bags marked ‘hazardous’ outside the pub while police were carrying out their work. You can read more stories from the Rhondda here.
The Rhondda Hotel opened in 2003 before closing its doors earlier this year. It was described as “one of the finest music venues in Wales” and “the place to go for top-notch musical entertainment and a pub that, as soon as you walked through the doors, felt like home”.
The venue played host to many shows over the years with the likes of Ricky Warwick and The Wonder Stuff’s frontman Miles Hunt taking to the stage. However the Covid-19 pandemic took its toll on the venue and it never recovered. You can read more about the closed clubs and pubs in RCT here.
Dog trapped down mine shaft in Pontypool since Boxing Day South Wales Argus
EFFORTS are under way to rescue a dog which has been trapped in a old mine shaft in Pontypool since Boxing Day.
Two dogs reportedly fell down what is believed to be an old mine shaft in Varteg on Monday, December 26. One has been recovered – but the second remains trapped.
The trapped female dog is believed to still be alive.
James Bourne, a friend of the dog’s owner said: “One dog has been removed and is ok.
“The other dog remains down there and is alive, but we are unable to get her at the moment.”
South Wales Fire and Rescye Service attended the scene before handing control over to the Mountain Rescue Service.
A spokesperson for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: “At approximately 3.19pm on Monday, December 26, we received reports of a dog rescue in Varteg, Pontypool.
“South Wales Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene however the incident was then handed over to Mountain Rescue.”
In a Facebook post last night Mr Bourne appealed for help.
He said: “There is still one dog stuck in the mine shaft at the dogstone.
“Rescue teams are struggling, and a tracked machine is needed to dig down to bed rock to make access easier.
“Please come forward if you can help it would be very much appreciated.”
The Facebook post was updated this morning that a digger has been found to help rescue the trapped dog.
Ambulance waits and most urgent calls rise over Christmas South Wales Argus
AMBULANCE crews spent the equivalent of more than 300 days waiting to admit patients to hospital over the Christmas period across Wales, while the percentage of ‘immediately life-threatening’ calls also skyrocketed.
The Welsh Ambulance Service has urged the public to only call 999 in an emergency due to the high levels of demand.
Between Tuesday, December 20 and Tuesday, December 27, 1,532 ‘red’ calls – which are the most urgent, immediately life-threatening cases – were made, according to figures supplied by the ambulance service.
This rose from 946 during that period last year.
Despite the rise in the most urgent calls, the number of calls received by the ambulance service during this period rose from 10,138 to 10,327.
One reason for this figure staying at roughly the same level may be because of ambulance staff striking on December 20 and 21 this year.
The figures show that although fewer patients were taken to hospital this Christmas week compared to the previous year, crews spent much longer waiting to hand over patients.
In 2021, the number of patients taken to hospital was 3,902, with crews waiting for 2,777 hours outside hospital at an average wait time of 42 minutes and 42 seconds.
This year, 3,286 patients were taken to hospital, with crews spending a total of 7,472 hours waiting (just over 311 days) to hand over patients – at an average hand over time of two hours, 16 minutes and 27 seconds.
Eighteen per cent of red calls this Christmas were because of breathing problems, while 1,386 (13 per cent) were due to falls. Patients suffering chest pains made up nine per cent of red calls.
Last Christmas saw coronavirus cases again on the rise, with Wales put under alert level two restrictions from Boxing Day.
The majority of red calls between December 20 and 27, 2021, were recorded as ‘Pandemic flu’ – 1,384 calls (14 per cent).
Falls accounted for 11 per cent of red calls in 2021, while nine per cent of red call patients reported suffering from chest pains.
A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said: “The number of ‘red’ calls in the last seven days was 62 per cent higher than the same period last year.
“We’re asking the public only to call 999 in a serious or life-threatening emergency to protect our precious resources for those who need us most.
“For everything else, we’re asking people to visit the NHS 111 Wales website where they can check symptoms, find out what’s wrong and next steps to take.”
Green hydrogen as a positive energy alternative for the future South Wales Argus
The Professional Master’s Degree Renewable Energies of TECH emphasizes the need to work in favour of green energies such as hydrogen
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, it is the material from which stars are made and 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, a chemical compound consisting of hydrogen and oxygen, also hydrocarbons, such as methane and crude oil is made up of it. As evidenced, most hydrogen is found in chemical compounds: on its own, in an invisible, odourless, non-toxic gas that is lighter than air and liquefies on its own at -252°C. It is precisely these emission-free properties that make hydrogen a promising candidate for the transition to a new energy vector, which will be developed in depth in the Professional Master’s Degree Renewable Energies at TECH.
Considering the previous idea, there is unlimited potential for the hydrogen industry from its production to its storage, transport and use in a wide range of uses. Major industrial countries around the world have invested billions of dollars to establish a powerful and efficient hydrogen economy and it has opportunities to:
However, it is necessary to highlight that hydrogen must be green or renewable which is obtained from a chemical process of electrolysis of water, in which a decomposition of water is carried out into oxygen and hydrogen through electricity from renewable sources. In this wat, it can be an optimal option because it is inexhaustible and can provide energy without emitting carbon dioxide.
Professional Master’s Degree Renewable Energies
TECH Technological University designed this program to incorporate and give the latest trends in the Renewable Energy area, having in mind the new point of view that sustainable engineering has developed, with the most exhaustive review of the most recognized and valued new techniques and procedures.

University of South Wales faces a multi-million-pound financial deficit Wales Online
A Welsh university is facing a multi-million-pound back hole in its finances. The University of South Wales (USW) has identified a £6m deficit in its current financial year due to a significant rise in non returning students and running costs.
In an internal email to university staff its Vice-Chancellor, Dr Ben Calvert, said the higher education institution will have to look at in-year and medium term efficiency savings – although it wouldn’t clarify if this could see a reduction in staffing levels. The university employs more than 2,600 staff of which 1,600 are academic related.
For its current 2022-23 financial year, which runs to July end, Dr Calvert said while its number of enrolled international students was significantly higher than in the previous two academic years, it was still below target. This he said was partially down to some students deferring to the February 2023 intake. He also confirmed that USW was able to enrol 253 more UK full time undergraduate home students than the initial target – although this was still 3% fewer than in September 2020.

On the financial position Dr Calvert told colleagues: “Tuition fee income is providing £1.6m less income than we had planned. Whilst our new entrant income is £4.3m more than anticipated, there is £5.9m less income from returning students.
“Overall, we anticipate there will be an approximate £6m deficit at the end of this financial year. We have also seen an increase in costs, such as investment to pump prime home recruitment activity, agent costs to recruit international students, wage increases, inflation in our supply chain and of course cost of living support including £850,000 allocated for additional help (bursaries for students and free breakfast scheme).”
On students opting not to continue their learning at the university, the Dr Calvert said: “We have seen a 6.1% decrease in our returning students compared to last year. Colleges and some universities across the sector are reporting similar patterns. Whilst we have seen fewer students being withdrawn as a result of our lack of engagement process, we are seeing more students reporting that they have withdrawn due to health and employment reasons, and a small number who have cited financial reasons. “Worryingly, there was a significant increase in the number of students who were discontinued at assessment boards, either for not submitting any, or parts of, their work or failing the assessments they submitted.
“We know that the suspension of A level examinations and the so-called grade inflation from A levels and other qualifications has had an impact; we also know that the trend of submitting only some assessments is mirrored in our local colleges. In addition, the cost of living is almost certainly having an impact. In this perfect storm, a retention taskforce has been set up to implement swift and targeted actions. We have previously significantly improved our retention so that over a number of years we have been at, or better than, our benchmark. So, we are good at this, and we will work hard to get back to that position.”
To address the financial deficit for the year the Vice-Chancellor said: “We need to generate new and alternative sources of income, drive the USW 2030 strategy, and invest in our longer-term growth and improvement. We will also have to look at how we can achieve in-year and medium-term cost efficiencies and plan for longer term priorities with faculties and professional service areas as part of our planning and budgeting cycle. We must align costs with income and generate surpluses to reinvest in our education and research priorities.
Asked if job losses could form part of efficiency savings a USW spokesperson said: “It’s a difficult operating environment for everyone, including the higher education sector. We are anticipating that we will be posting a deficit at the end of the financial year. USW has strong financial foundations, generated from years of good performance, that enables us to be able to continue to strategically invest as we evolve and remain flexible to meet short-term deficits.”
The university has more than 23,000 students. USW were asked to provide student and staffing figures for its current financial year, but would only refer to latest published figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency which are two years old. They show, based on the 2020-21 academic year, the university having more than 3,200 overseas students, with more than than a third attracted from four non EU nations in China, India, Nigeria and Bangladesh.
Star Entertainment, Twitch, UKGC & Ksa: October readdressed Casino Beats
The UK’s political turmoil continued into October when Liz Truss signalled an intention to resign as Prime Minister after 44 days, a decision that quickly saw the Conservatives appoint Rishi Sunak as new leader.
A months-long will he, won’t he saw Elon Musk take control of Twitter and immediately fire four executives, while Adidas cut all ties with Kanye West over antisemitic remarks made in interviews and on his social media.
As the UN General Assembly passed a resolution condemning Russia’s attempted annexation of Ukrainian territory, China’s COVID-zero ambitions continued with 28 cities and 207 million people affected by some form of lockdown.
In football, Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema claimed his first men’s Ballon d’Or, with Barcelona midfielder Alexia Putellas triumphing in the women’s award for a second-straight season.
Elsewhere, Massachusetts named Podokesaurus holyokensis (swift-footed lizard of Holyoke) as the official state dinosaur, while Taylor Swift became the first artist in history to claim all top 10 slots on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In the industry, as beleaguered Australian casino operator Star Entertainment received a pair of further significant setbacks, the challenge of constructing a blockbuster title, developments in the Netherlands, another UKGC penalty package and updates in New York and Ontario were all among the most read.
Feature of the month
Should an ‘Idiots Guide’ to creating a blockbuster igaming title exist, the chase of that golden goose, and subsequent conversations regarding which, would be relatively dull and short-lived.
However, in what may be a shock to many, these dos and don’ts are not readily available, and so an expert panel convened in Barcelona to offer a series of insights into the key ingredients of such a game.
With mechanics, design, sound effects, music, narrative and RTP, among many more, having to be factored into the development process, how do studios choose a level of priority and ensure that they interplay with each other.
“We’re in a very hyper competitive landscape right now,” began Bryan Upton, Founder and Director of Lucksome, emphasising that production begins by setting a series of parameters for games to be built.
These, he said, include stipulating a foundation on who a title is being designed for, motivations of play, target jurisdictions, cultural tastes, regulations and numerous more, each of which play a role in the risk versus rewards dilemma.
In a long-read, further insights came via Jeremy Coleman, Commercial Director at PearFiction Studios; Mark McGinley, CEO of FunFair Games; Daniel Giuffra, Brand Manager of CasinoGrounds; and Vladyslav Garanko, CMO at Platipus.
In the news
A troubling year for Australian casinos continued into October as the first week of the 31 days saw Star Entertainment found unsuitable to hold a casino licence within Queensland, in developments that mirrored those already encountered further south in New South Wales.
This saw the latter state hit the group with a record A$100m penalty and licence suspension, before the Sunshine State warned that a similar result could follow for the group as Queensland closed the month by doubling down on its own findings.
In the Netherlands, it was detailed that LCS and MKC had discontinued their offerings to Dutch consumers following regulatory action being taken one month earlier.
Elsewhere, René Jansen, Chair of the Ksa, warned of enforcement action should a “new tidal wave of advertising” be witnessed as the men’s football World Cup approaches, which followed an assertion that “we are getting even closer to the desired ultimate goal”.
October also saw the UK Gambling Commission order GGPoker to pay £672,829 for social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures; Betsson purchased KickerTech Malta, which owns a B2B sportsbook operation, for €14m, a transition period deadline in Ontario ended at close of the month and New York progressed its process of allocating licences for three casinos in its city region.
A Twitch ruling sent shockwaves across the industry as many delved into the finer details of September’s announcement and the potential implications this could have.
This came in response to the company statement of new rules that were enforced from October 18, which saw the streaming platform issue a ban on content from websites offering slots, roulette or dice games that aren’t licensed in the US or other jurisdictions that “provide sufficient consumer protection”.
In a three-part special Michael Pedersen, Chief Commercial Officer of Livespins; Harry Proudley, Marketing Coordinator of 1X2 Network; Tom Galanis, Managing Director at First Look Games and Darren, a streamer at Stop and Step, offered insights.
Furthermore, in the first of a two parter, Mark McGinley, CEO at FunFair Games, elaborated on the importance of partnering with well known brands, ensuring correct representation and if we can expect similar such moves going forward from the studio.
Video of the month
A “monumental day,” “huge validation” and “proudest moment of my career” was excitedly revealed to LinkedIn as Motti Colman, Senior Director of Sales at Optimove, eagerly confirmed what the company hailed as a “groundbreaking” alliance with bet365.
In a tie-up that maintained momentum built up over recent weeks and months, Colman took centre stage at SBC Summit Barcelona to delve into a deal that saw the operator declare “I don’t think we could have found a better partner”.
He said: “We’ve known 365 for a very long time and we’ve always spoken to them, but I think they’re, as everybody knows, a very private business, particularly around their data, so we’ve gone through many interactions of the discussion with them over the years.
“For whatever reason from their side the time is right, but it was still a very long process as you can imagine.”
Adding: “It may well be the biggest moment of my career between now and when I retire”.
In Pictures: Tumultuous year in politics as PMs come and go South Wales Guardian
Prime ministers came and went in 2022 as both Boris Johnson and Liz Truss departed from No 10 during a tumultuous 12 months in British politics.
Partygate, local election and by-election losses, and a damaging confidence vote beset Mr Johnson before he resigned amid criticism of his handling of allegations against deputy chief whip Chris Pincher.
Ms Truss triumphed over former chancellor Rishi Sunak in the ensuing Conservative Party leadership contest, becoming prime minister on September 6.
But her tenure did not last long, after she and her chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng sent markets into meltdown with their mini-budget weeks later.
Ms Truss’s exit from No 10 came after just 49 days, making her the shortest-serving premier in history.
Days later Mr Sunak was announced as the new leader of the Tory party, becoming the third prime minister to take the reins in Downing Street in 2022.
More Crawley chaos as County’s League Two rivals start hunt for … South Wales Argus
CRAWLEY will have a new man in the dugout against Newport County AFC on Monday for the second time this season after Matthew Etherington left after just 32 days in charge.
The 41-year-old quit his role as Peterborough’s Under-23 boss to take up the job on November 27, replacing Kevin Betsy who was sacked in October.
The former Tottenham midfielder got off to a winning start in his first game in charge but then suffered back-to-back home defeats to Hartlepool and Sutton, the latter featuring a terrible corner routine which attracted much derision on social media.
The losses left Crawley 20th in the League Two table and a club statement released on Thursday confirmed Etherington and assistant manager Simon Davies had left their roles with immediate effect.
Director of football and interim CEO Chris Galley said: “It has become clear to all involved parties that this partnership is not the right fit to carry the club forward and achieve our goals.
“As a result, we have mutually decided to move in a different direction. We wish Matty and Simon well in their future endeavours.”

Crawley head to second-placed Stevenage on Friday night before a clash with County in Newport on Monday.
The Reds beat the Exiles in October when they had Lewis Young calling the shots as caretaker boss while sporting director Darren Kelly was in the away dugout before Graham Coughlan was appointed as James Rowberry’s replacement.
Crawley have sold influential forward Tom Nichols to relegation rivals Gillingham, a deal that will be officially completed on January 1.
League Two golden boot winner Dom Telford left County for Crawley last summer on a bumper deal but the chaos has impacted his on-field return with the striker on five goals for the campaign.
