Tennis-Polish tennis chief resigns after abuse allegations

By Sports games

The president of the Polish Tennis Association (PZT) resigned on Thursday, the governing body said in a statement, after being embroiled in a sex abuse scandal. In an interview with the Onet news site published on Monday, MP Katarzyna Kotula accused PZT leader Miroslaw Skrzypczynski of sexually assaulting her when he was a coach in the early 1990s.

The allegations came after another Onet play in which Skrzypczynski was accused of using physical and psychological violence against his family and the players he coached. Skrzypczynski denied the charges in a statement sent to Reuters on Wednesday and said he intended to prove his innocence in court.

“At the Polish Tennis Association Board meeting (…) Miroslaw Skrzypczynski tendered his resignation as Chairman of the Polish Tennis Association Board with immediate effect,” PZT said in a statement. “Miroslaw Skrzypczynski’s resignation has been accepted unanimously.”

The association said it would set up an independent commission made up of women to investigate the charges against Skrzypczynski. Skrzypczynski did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment on Thursday.

The furor surrounding the allegations prompted world number one tennis player Iga Swiatek to post a message on Twitter on Tuesday urging victims facing any kind of abuse in life to seek help. Polish tennis star Hubert Hurkacz said on Twitter that he supports “all women and all victims of abuse”.

Skrzypczynski will be replaced as head of the PZT by former vice-president Dariusz Lukaszewski.

The first multi-dimensional NFT options product based on sports events

By Sports events

As sports culture and the crypto-economy collide, and as major events such as the Qatar World Cup approach, derivatives based on sports events present new opportunities for crypto investors.

NEW YORK, NY/ACCESSWIRE/November 24, 2022/ NFTEA, a Web3-based NFT “teahouse” offers NFT options, games, galleries and many other derivatives. It has brand new community governance and fully decentralized contractual interaction that achieves full fairness.

For the first time, the NFTEA is embedding NFT, options and sports culture at its core, allowing investors to profit from the event while participating in options trading and earning profits.

Multidimensional NFT Options Products for Sports Events

As the 2022 World Cup in Qatar approaches, the NFTEA World Cup 2022an NFT-based options product, was launched, creating several firsts during its inception:

  • The first sporty NFT option;
  • The first multidimensional NFT option;
  • Take the lead in integrating AMM into the NFT option.

NFTEA World Cup 2022The products of are entirely decentralized on the chain. Based on a simple option mechanism, users can support their favorite teams by purchasing options from different teams.

Options represent a certificate of option assets with multiple terms and potential future value, which can be traded on exchanges such as Opensea at any time. This right will be exercised after the World Cup in Qatar. Investors who hold different teams should receive substantial equity income.

The NFTEA project is supported by Qatar 2022 Digital Twinwhich is the first meta-universe ecosystem supported by the Royal Family of Qatar.

How the decentralized NFT option is designed

NFTEA, Thursday, November 24, 2022, Image from press release

NFTEA World Cup 2022 is built on the Polygon mainnet, with a total of 32 teams, each with 40,000 options and NFTs. Team option saves team information, exercise date, expected performance, etc. The NFT team records the purchase time, team information, etc. Team options and NFTs are based on Ethereum’s ERC1155 standard.

Users must purchase NFT options to participate in events. The NFTEA has adopted the MA mechanism, with the initial price of 3USDC. Later, the pricing mechanism is completely decentralized and determined by the market, the deciding factors include aspects of team performance, market moods and community feedback. For example, before the start of the game, the future performance of a team is still unclear, so the price of options will not be high; once the game starts and the strongest team(s) show up, indicating the increasing possibility of profiting from that team(s), then the price of the options will surely increase.

NFTEA, Thursday, November 24, 2022, Image from press release

This means that the cost of buying option cards for stronger teams will increase dramatically as the game progresses, and the earlier you buy, the lower the cost will be and the more benefits you will receive (the early entrants can win the most). Meanwhile, the cost of some unpopular teams is relatively low, using appropriate strategies, you can also gain advantages.

The NFT Team represents NFT Options, which is used as a symbol and a collectible to give away to users for free after users purchase NFT Options.

Fully decentralized income system

Users who hold the NFT option can exercise their rights after the World Cup to earn money. When users purchase NFT options, 10% of the fee will be submitted to the development team as development funds and copyright revenue, while all remaining sales will be returned to participating users.

NFTEA, Thursday, November 24, 2022, Image from press release

Depending on each team’s final score, the buyer of the team’s NFT option may earn different amounts of money, and may also lose money.

NFTEA, Thursday, November 24, 2022, Image from press release

The revenue pool contains:

1. Team Reward Pool (90%)

According to the final results of each team (champion, runner-up, third, fourth, quarter-final, top 16, non-top 16), the buyer of the team’s NFT options will have the possibility of receiving different amounts of income and may also suffer losses.

We consider both the cost and the number of sales. Assuming that the number of options sold for each team is uniform, we will obtain the following cost-benefit relationship:

Single team (40,000 total)

  • If 5,000 cards were sold, the average option price is 3.428 USDC and the highest price is 3.918 USDC. After winning the championship, theoretically 3.428*2=6.856 USDC can be recovered (if other teams have also sold the same number of options).
  • If 10,000 cards have been sold, the average Option price is 4 USDC, and the highest price is 5.33 USDC, after winning the championship, theoretically 4*2= 8 USDC can be recovered.
  • If 15,000 cards have been sold, the average option price is 4.8 USDC and the highest price is 7.68 USDC. After winning the championship, theoretically 4.8 * 2 = 9.6 USDC can be recovered.
  • If 20,000 cards have been sold, the average option price is 6 USDC and the highest price is 12 USDC. After winning the championship, theoretically 6*2= 12 USDC can be recovered.
  • If 25,000 cards have been sold, the average option price is 8 USDC and the highest price is 21.33 USDC. After winning the championship, theoretically 8*2= 16 USDC can be recovered.
  • If 30,000 cards have been sold, the average option price is 12 USDC and the highest price is 48 USDC. After winning the championship, theoretically 12*2= 24 USDC can be recovered.

Therefore, when we assume that all teams sell 20,000 options (total is 40,000), of which Team A wins the championship, the final yield can be twice the average price of 8U for selling 20,000 options, i.e. 16U.

As for the first investors who bought while the price is at 3U, they can obtain 4 times the return. Those who bought later, despite lower yields, could still earn a fairly substantial return. With this model, you can see that users who participate early are the ones who profit the most.

It’s worth mentioning that on each team’s option details page, the highest payout (if they win the championship) and the lowest payout (if they don’t end up in the top 16) of the option will be continuously updated in real time. Users can use this information to judge teams and people’s expectations of them, combine this information with the current price to make an overall judgment, and decide on the option to buy the team.

2. Last buyer (1%)

The last buyer of all teams will receive an additional grand prize of 1% of the team pool.

3. Referral Reward (5%)

We have referral rewards! When a user refers a friend to buy an NFT option, they will directly receive 5% of the sales commission. For example, if Player B buys a 3 USDC option through Player A’s referral link, Player A will immediately get 5% of the sales to his address, or 0.15 USDC. This is another way for users to get more profit.

4. Lotto Jackpot (3%)

This part of the revenue pool will accommodate various small businesses, such as blind boxes, card collection, Airdropsetc

5. Community Incentives (1%)

This part of the revenue pool is used to reward active community members and admins, to incentivize those who actively contribute to the project.

The 2022 NFTEA World Cup The product series is a pilot project for the team to engage in the NFT option in the field of sports. From 2023, we will launch products for Europe’s Big Five Leagues, NBA, Esports (Dota, League of Legends, CS) and other diversified Sports NFT Option products to meet our users’ needs.

By Sports games

Ecuador captain and top scorer Enner Valencia is still suffering from a minor knee sprain ahead of his side’s Group A game with the Netherlands, from which the South Americans could advance to the second round to the second time only. The 33-year-old limped off after scoring twice in Ecuador’s opening win against Qatar, raising question marks over his availability against the Dutch on Friday.

TSN Sports app reportedly crashed or crashed and frozen for many

By Sports app

TSN Sports is one of Canada’s leading sports entertainment companies. They currently have the rights to the FIFA World Cup streams, so it’s obvious that many eyes are on them.

But things didn’t go as we hoped.

Broken TSN Sports app

According to reports, many TSN Sports viewers are having issues with the app and claiming that it is extremely flawed (1,2,3,4,5,6,seven,8,9).

Source

Many users report that the app crashes frequently. For some, the reading freezes every few seconds or minutes.

Others reportedly have audio issues, with some reporting that there is sound during commercials, but matches are muted entirely.

This makes it extremely difficult for viewers to enjoy World Cup coverage. Additionally, this issue is not limited to one platform, implying that TSN servers may also be affected.

@TSN_Sports your coverage is good the analysis is good but your app is just terrible and unchanged from the last wc why reveal the score before the highlights? Why call 7minutes “extended” hl? Why use 2 minutes to get out of the tunnel? Please please improve doing WC properly! Please!
Source

Thanks for pointing this out, because your app was constantly crashing and making me see the same ad again every time I tried to activate the stream. Fortunately, he could see Gakpo’s goal. Not impressed with your streaming.
Source

The app occasionally displays ads even after purchasing a premium subscription (1,2,3,4,5).

Many viewers are irritated because when they refresh the stream after the app crashes, they are forced to watch an advertisement.

The frustration is further compounded when the app crashes as much as it does, during the action, and you can’t quickly reload it because you have 30 seconds of ads to skip.
Source

Unfortunately, there is no official acknowledgment of this issue at this time. It is therefore unknown when a patch will be released for TSN Sports users.

That being said, stay tuned to PiunikaWeb for if and when there are further developments regarding the issue.

To note: We have more stories like this in our apps section, so be sure to follow those as well.

NASA Orion Spacecraft Completes Lunar Flyby – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

washington d.c. – NASA’s Orion spacecraft picked up the signal with the deep space network, at 6:59h VSJ after successfully completing the outgoing powered flyby at 6:44 CT with a shot from the orbital maneuvering system engine for 2 minutes and 30 seconds to accelerate the spacecraft to a rate of over 580 mph.

At the time of the burn, Orion was 328 miles above the Moon, traveling at 5,023 mph. Shortly after the burn, Orion passed 81 miles above the Moon, traveling at 5,102 mph. At the time of the lunar flyby, Orion was over 230,000 miles from Earth.


The exiting powered hover is the first of two maneuvers required to enter the far retrograde orbit around the Moon. The spacecraft will perform the remote retrograde orbit insertion burn on Friday, Nov. 25, using the European Service Module.

Orion will stay in this orbit for about a week to test the spacecraft systems. The distant retrograde will take Orion 40,000 miles beyond the Moon before returning to Earth. Orion’s greatest distance from Earth will be Monday, Nov. 28 at 3:05 p.m. CT at over 268,500 miles. Orion’s greatest distance to the Moon will be Friday, November 25 at 3:53 p.m. CT at over 57,250 miles.

The Deep Space Network, operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, manages Artemis I’s communications beyond low Earth orbit. This includes mission path corrections, powered hover burns, and remote retrograde orbit insertion and departure, while the near space array provides additional navigation data with the help of the Near Space Network’s constellation of tracking and data relay satellites.

The Deep Space Network consists of three facilities equidistant from each other –? about 120 degrees longitude distance?- around the world. These sites are at?gold stone, near Barstow, Calif.; near?Madrid, Spain; and nearby?Canberra, Australia.

The strategic location of these sites allows for constant communication with spacecraft as our planet rotates – before a distant spacecraft sinks below the horizon at one site, another site can pick up the signal and continue to communicate. Orion first regained the signal with the Madrid ground station after the lunar flyby, then the transition signal to the gold stone station.


NASA television coverage of the insertion burn in remote retrograde orbit will begin at 3:30 p.m. CT Friday, with the burn scheduled to take place at 3:52 p.m.

With Twitter’s Automated Copyright Removal System, Live Sporting Events Could Join Movies

By Sports events

While there remains a chaotic management style and a small team of employees, Twitter
TWTR
automated services around replays have dropped, leaving the door open for accounts to post entire games.

Removing the policy of reinstating former President Donald Trump, entertainer formerly known as Kayne West, or comedian Kathy Griffin, for the roughly 3 weeks that Elon Musk was at the helm of Twitter gave a overview of how to untangle a great social network platform in no time.

Musk’s managerial moves (fire about half of Twitter employees), give ultimatums to the remaining employees (which backfired), and engage in product launches under paid blue tick verification only to have to remove it can best be described as “why plan when we can just throw things against the wall and see if it will stick”.

Beyond the creation of a model of what business leaders should not do, layoffs and the exodus of remaining employees have put the infrastructure on which Twitter relies under strain that is beginning to see it crack. While the days of the Twitter whale may not fully arrive, pieces of Twitter’s IT architecture are surfacing that put Musk in further legal peril.

It is now widely reported that Twitter’s Automated Copyright Warning/Takedown System No Longer Functional, leaving the possibility of downloading complete films in 2-minute increments. This left the core content management team to resolve the issue through manual discovery. While an account that posted the full Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift was suspended, the method was kludgy and didn’t stop other accounts from doing the same.

In this absolute mess, the sports world where the NFL, the NBA. And the NHL seasons are in full swing and the FIFA World Cup is now underway. The rights to broadcast these sports properties are in the hundreds of billions of dollars and are highly protected by the networks that air or broadcast them.

Musk’s irresponsible management style provided a window for Twitter accounts to ostensibly “rebroadcast” live sports seconds after they aired, infringing copyright. If someone did this for content aired on ESPN or ABC, it would raise the ire of Disney Co, which owns those networks, not to mention the sports leagues who let it be known on every show that rebroadcasting without express written consent wins you in hot water with their legal divisions.

Musk seems to be happily basking in the “bad news always makes news” PR philosophy with his scattered approach, but he’s about to face a mountain of lawsuits. The richest man in the world can afford them, but the aura of “Musk plays chess while everyone else plays checkers” is rapidly eroding, affecting the way the business world views not just Twitter, but Tesla and SpaceX. Musk’s madness with Twitter has him messing with a now private company. He doesn’t have that luxury with the public companies he also runs.

Politics aside, Musk now seems out of clothes and seems determined to undermine his $44 billion investment. It’s not just Hollywood that will be monitoring efforts around Twitter strike/takedown policies. The sports world is on the edge of their seat.

BCCI adopts the digitization of the payment interface

By Sports games

In a major boost that will ensure the seamless transfer and dissemination of funds to players and state associations, the BCCI, under the leadership of Secretary Jay Shah, today announced the adoption and upgrade of a new digital interface. With this upgrade, players and state associations will now be guaranteed minimal paperwork and reduced time to process invoices.

Below are the following benefits of the BCCI Database Management System (ODMS): Invoices for players of all age groups (male and female) will be submitted monthly instead of completing the tournament. Under this, players can avail monthly payouts based on the number of matches played in a month.

Players can now issue invoices at their convenience at any location via the online portal. State associations will be able to approve and recommend to BCCI the release of fees to players digitally

State Associations will not be required to wait for all players to submit invoices for the tournament. Associations have the ability to approve player complaints on a regular basis. No manual intervention is assured, which will help mitigate errors, especially for payouts, including the Ranji Trophy, where there are differential match fee rates based on the number of matches played by individual players.

BCCI / State Associations / Players can track their invoice details online and payment status Accommodation and participation fees: State associations can issue their invoices through the online system and track the payment process on the electronic portal

Record keeping will be easier for state associations and BCCI, ensuring transparency at all levels. GIS/auditable documents can now be generated through the electronic portal.

The BCCI had previously sacked the national selection committee led by Chetan Sharma, inviting new applications. (ANI)

Football-Brazil Ze Roberto defends the appeal of Alves by Tite

By Sports games

Former Brazilian midfielder Ze Roberto said criticism of Dani Alves’ call-up for the World Cup in Qatar was due to a cultural taboo on veterans that was still present in Brazilian football, which he said. lived in his last final in 2006. Brazil coach Tite drew criticism from local media after calling out Alves, 39, who last played in September and recently recovered from a knee injury .

“This age issue is cultural. I experienced it firsthand when I returned to Brazil after the 2006 World Cup,” Ze Roberto told Brazilian site UOL. “It’s hard to change that mentality, because it’s part of the culture of the Brazilian fans, of the press.

“In my case, I had to face a taboo. From what I see, this taboo has not yet been broken, it still exists today.” Ze Roberto traveled to the 2006 World Cup in Germany aged 32 after returning to Brazil after a long career in Europe, which also drew criticism in his home country.

The 48-year-old added that Alves’ experience will be of great value to a side who are among the favorites to lift the trophy in Qatar. “Daniel Alves’ experience is crucial for the group. New players have emerged who are excelling in Europe but will play their first World Cup,” said Ze Roberto.

“You need experienced players to support you. He was called up because of the great results he has had in his career and because he can still add to the World Cup, both playing and away. .” Brazil will begin their campaign for a record sixth World Cup title on Thursday against Serbia.

The most controversial sporting events

By Sports events

Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter has said that Qatar, where the World Cup is taking place, is a mistake. The drama has escalated since he got the rights under Blatter (who was banned from FIFA activities in 2015 for corruption).

Many issues have set off alarm bells around the world. On the one hand, Qatar was accused of paying bribes to officials to obtain the contract, but was later cleared.

More recently, the first Arab country to host FIFA has been accused of human rights abuses. Thousands of migrant workers have died while working to build gaming infrastructure in intolerant conditions and hot weather. Qatar has underestimated these deaths–The Guardianthe estimate was 6,500 in 2021. FIFA asked teams to focus on the game and not on political battles, a move that was criticized by teams and football associations around the world.

Fans and celebrities are also boycotting the event for other reasons. In Qatar, homosexuality is illegal and the LGBTQ+ community is brutally persecuted and harassed; punishments can be as severe as the death penalty. Qatar’s World Cup ambassador said homosexuality is “a damage in the spirit”, drawing criticism from activists and the community and heightening concerns about community safety.

Drinking laws are strict, and drinking in public can land revelers in jail, though organizers have designated areas for drinking before and after games. However, Qatar abruptly announced two days before the first game that alcoholic beverages would not be sold during games.

Women’s rights are also reduced in the conservative nation, where women face discrimination on a daily basis. They need men’s permission to travel abroad, enroll in their universities or find jobs, and there are laws that prohibit consensual sex outside of marriage, while survivors of sexual assault can also be punished.

One last thing in this slew: David Beckham has become the face of the tournament as an ambassador for culture and tourism. As expected, the soccer star received a massive backlashand outraged fans wanted him out of the tournament to save his reputation as an ally.

PREVIEW-Soccer-Qatar has come the moment of truth

By Sports games

The moment of truth for Qatar’s ability to stage the World Cup after years of failed openings and criticism over labor rights and strict laws has come.

Difficulties began to escalate as early as December 2010 when it was announced that Qatar would host the final amid a storm of international criticism. “For me it’s clear: Qatar is a mistake; a bad choice,” Sepp Blatter, the former president of world football’s governing body FIFA, said last week.

Always held during the closed season of the majority of leagues, it was difficult to maintain such a schedule with temperatures reaching over 45 degrees Celsius in the scorching Qatar summers. Two studies conducted by FIFA in 2014 and 2015 were enough to conclude that it would be impossible to hold the tournament in June-July, prompting to move it to November and December.

The construction of the new stadiums has been the scene of much labor rights controversy, with media reporting that thousands of foreign workers have lost their lives or been abused in the process. Qatar responded by changing its labor laws to contain the global dismay.

Additionally, Qatar’s strict Islamic laws against LGBT rights or alcohol consumption have come under a new firestorm of criticism. Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the emir of Qatar, told the UN General Assembly last September that his government was ready to welcome everyone without discrimination.

Qatari Olympic high jump champion Mutaz Barshim, World Cup ambassador, said the tournament was an opportunity to unite people. “The World Cup will have a positive impact on our society by showcasing our culture to the world and helping people to build friendships and network. This is a golden opportunity to change negative perceptions about the region and to create new and meaningful connections,” he said in a statement. interview with the Qatar 2022 website on Wednesday.

Qatar will be the first team since Italy in the second World Cup in 1934 to enter the final for the first time as hosts without first qualifying for the tournament. In order to avoid a fate similar to that of Switzerland, Chile and South Africa, who all hosted but eliminated the group stage finals in 1954, 1962 and 2010, the Qatar team followed a thorough tournament preparation process.

It started with the appointment of Spain coach Felix Sanchez in 2017, whose knowledge of the region helped him guide Qatar to the 2019 Asian Cup title, winning every match in the process. Sanchez’s men raised eyebrows with a number of notable performances, including a 3-1 loss to Japan in the final.

The team continued their preparation by rubbing shoulders with the best in South America with participation in the 2019 Copa America. Nevertheless, the experience proved to be a bit too much for the team who finished bottom of their group after defeats against Colombia and Argentina and a draw against Paraguay.

Qatar, similarly and by special request, took part in the CONCACAF Gold Cup last year, where they improved by taking the lead in their group and beating El Salvador in the quarter-finals before lose 1-0 to the United States in the semi-finals. The team will be under pressure from the fans to achieve the desired results at home, especially after the decision of the Qatar Federation not to allow their players to play for their national clubs since the start of the current season in order to devote to the preparations for the match. finals.

Motor racing – Red Bull’s Perez scourges Monaco crash speculation

By Sports games

Sergio Perez has denied deliberately crashing his Red Bull during qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix in May after media speculation the race sparked a team controversy in Brazil last weekend.

Two-time Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen refused to give Perez a place back at Interlagos, despite being told by the team, and said his actions stemmed from “something that happened in the past “. Dutch media reported it was revenge for Perez crashing deliberately in Monaco, where overtaking is extremely difficult. The Mexican lined up third and ahead of Verstappen on the grid and took the win.

Perez, who is battling for second place in a championship already won by Verstappen, told reporters before the end of the Abu Dhabi season that Monaco had not been discussed in clear talks after Brazil. “Everyone makes mistakes in Monaco, and in general in qualifying – it’s not like it was done on purpose,” said the 32-year-old.

“That rumor is false,” he added, when asked about speculation he had admitted to the team for crashing on purpose. The events in Brazil sparked a backlash against Verstappen, who said he and his family had suffered online threats and abuse.

Verstappen said he was ready to help Perez if needed this weekend. Perez, who enjoyed a harmonious relationship with Verstappen and helped him on several occasions, said he and the 25-year-old are adults and will leave Brazil.

He said the reasons for Verstappen’s refusal to make way for him had not been clarified. “Whether it’s Monaco or something else, it’s up to him to tell you, I don’t know how long he’s been there,” said the Mexican. “We haven’t discussed it.

“We discussed what happened in Brazil and we went through all the scenarios, all the mistakes we made as a team, not having prepared enough for the race, etc.

Executive offers InspireCon testimonial – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Created: Nov 17, 2022 09:19

Pleasantly surprised: Michelle White, owner of Executemps (file photo by Nhuri Bashir)

A workshop at InspireCon 2022 left a big impression on entrepreneur Michelle White.

Ms White, Principal and Owner of Executemps, the immigration consulting and administrative services company, was initially hesitant to attend the event presented by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation in partnership with Driven Society, based At New York.

She said: “To be honest, I wasn’t going to go because I thought it was for young people. But then I thought, ‘What do I have to lose? Maybe the young people can teach me something”.

“I was blown away at the end of the day.”

American entrepreneurs Arianna Rose and Soleil Laurent, founders of The Equality Education, shared their journey of building a business to help turn limiting beliefs into empowering beliefs.

Ms White said: ‘I call them the dynamic duo. They finish each other’s sentences; they clapped.

She participated in an element of their workshop, standing in front of the audience to assert her assertion in a mirror.

Ms White said: “I actually volunteered not knowing why I was volunteering. The general lesson was about transformation and self-affirmation.

“I don’t know if you talk to yourself in a mirror, but I don’t. It was very powerful and you felt the message.

Ms White said her message was about “finding time for myself; I am an entrepreneur and I work from sunrise to sunset.

“The takeaway from this is that I’m cutting out little chunks of time right now until I get to the point where I can structure it.”

InspireCon also featured presentations from Songe LaRon, who quit a desk job as a corporate attorney to build reservations software for the 109,000 hair salons in the United States; and entertainment executive Brandon Pankey, founder of Artist Presented Experiences, a new video network dedicated to curated programming for and by musical artists.

Then, Ms White said, she connected with all the presenters on LinkedIn so she could follow their journey.

She added, “That’s how impactful the whole workshop was.”

Jamillah Lodge, Director of Communications and Development at BEDC, said: “BEDC partnered with Driven Society in 2019 to bring the first InspireCon to Bermuda. This event received rave reviews and then Covid hit and as a result we were forced to go live for two years.

“We were thrilled to be able to bring InspireCon back to Bermuda in person this year. InspireCon creates opportunities for Bermudian entrepreneurs to network and connect with young American entrepreneurs to encourage them to think big and dream bigger.

InspireCon was part of BEDC’s Global Entrepreneurship Week activities.

Fite TV: price, sports, app, supported devices and Fite Plus

By Sports app

If you want to watch fight-related sports online, you’ve probably heard of Fite TV. The online video platform is home to plenty of boxing, MMA, and pro wrestling, as well as non-combat oriented sports like soccer and rugby. Heck, there’s even music and a podcast cover too.

Fite offers pay-per-view matches as well as its own subscription service called Fite TV Plus, which lets you stream exclusive events, catch up through an on-demand library, and remove ads from the Fite TV experience.

While ESPN Plus, FuboTV, and even Prime Video sports channels might be bigger names in terms of sports streaming services, Fite TV is more affordable than many competitors and has a more comprehensive offering in its specific niche.

So if you want to use Fite TV or subscribe to Fite TV Plus, this guide will help you get started with the fight streaming service.

Fite TV Price

Although Fite TV is available in various countries around the world, its prices are all quoted in US dollars, regardless of where you live. You will pay a converted price from this cost in your own currency.

Fite Plus costs $4.99 or the equivalent per month, or $49.99 per year, which is the price for 10 months.

However, many matches on Fite TV are pay-per-view, so whether or not you’re a Fite TV Plus subscriber, you still have to pay to stream them (although some are totally free).

Prizes range from $10 to $30 (or equivalent) depending on match profile, with shows like Impact wrestling falling to the low end of that spectrum and boxing matches like Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Deji costing a lot more.

You can find out the price of a stream by going to the Fite TV schedule here (opens in a new tab).

Sports TV Fite

So what sports does Fite TV offer?

In the sphere of combat, boxing is essential, with fights with bare hands and gloves. There are also plenty of professional wrestling matches, while Fite also hosts MMA bouts. Sometimes the platform combines sports for one show, so you can pay for one stream and end up seeing three different types of fights.

Outside of combat, Fite offers a few different types of games. There are a few football matches, usually international friendly matches. Rugby is something that’s pretty much shown, with all Rugby League World Cup matches (men’s, women’s and wheelchair) shown on the platform.

Finally, Fite also displays music streams. These are sporadic and are often associated with fight themes (Fight Music Show is an ongoing series), but there are also streams from festivals like the West Coast Music Festival. Many of them are free for Fight Plus subscribers.

Fit More

Fite Plus is Fite TV’s paid subscription service, which offers a few extra perks for hardcore fans of the sports the site offers.

We’ve already gone over the monthly and annual price for the service above, and you can revisit it below to keep yourself from scrolling up. There’s also a seven-day free trial if you want to test out the service first.

So what exactly does Fite Plus do for you?

First, some elements of the Fite program are exclusive to Fite Plus subscribers, so only people who pay can stream them live. Fite states that there are more than 1,000 hours per year.

There’s also a library of on-demand videos of past matches, with Fite saying there’s over 4,000 hours of fights to catch up on, and obviously that number is only growing over time. This comes from over 200 different sports organizations.

Finally, Fite Plus removes advertisements from the Fite website, making the user experience a bit cleaner.

FitTV app

If you want to watch Fite TV on the go, one of the most popular methods is to use the smartphone app.

You can see the Google Play Store listing here (opens in a new tab)if you have an Android phone or tablet, or Apple’s App Store listing here (opens in a new tab) for if you have an iPhone or iPad.

The app lets you view the same live and on-demand sports as the website, but it’s worth pointing out that app reviews are mixed. Both Play Store and App Store users complain about lag, hard to navigate UI and bugs, though overall the app has a good rating.

Fite TV Supported Devices

Besides watching Fite TV through its website or app, there are several other ways to follow its live sports.

If you have a streaming gadget like an Amazon Fire Stick or a Roku TV or device, or a smart TV, you can download the Fite app there to watch it. Casting, like using Chromecast or another equivalent device, also works.

If you have PS4 or PS5, you’ll find there’s no app for you – instead, you have to use the console’s browser to stream Fite videos. On Xbox One or Series S/X, it’s a little less annoying, but there’s still no app: you have to use the console’s TV Connect assistant and open the Fite app on your phone then that both are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, to stream from your mobile.

Fite TV FAQs

Is Fit TV free?

Fite TV offers some games, matches and shows for free. These are usually his smaller matches, along with podcasts and music shows.

However, most Fite TV games are pay-per-view, so you have to shell out to stream them. Fite Plus isn’t free either, although you can get a seven-day trial.

Can multiple people watch on Fite TV?

If you pay up to $30 to stream a boxing match for example, you might want to get your money’s worth by sharing the stream with people.

Of course, you can invite people to watch the fight with you, and that’s perfectly acceptable.

However, you cannot share the video with others on the internet – it will be linked to your account once you purchase it.

You can invite a friend, and they and you will get Fite credits for streams. To do this, go to your account settings, select Watch Free PPV and select to invite a friend.

Can you use a VPN with Fite TV?

VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, are a way to stream content from different countries when something isn’t playing where you are.

For Fite TV, however, user reports advise against using VPNs. Apparently, the site is more active than most in detecting and blocking pay-per-view purchases, so buying a VPN for this purpose can be a waste of money.

Djokovic to get visa to play Australian Open

By Sports games

Novak Djokovic is set to get a visa to play at the Australian Open next year despite his high-profile expulsion in January.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. said on Tuesday that she had confirmed newspaper reports that the immigration minister had overturned a potential three-year debarment period for Djokovic.

The Australian Border Force has previously said an exclusion period can be waived in certain circumstances – and each case will be assessed on its merits.

Immigration Minister Andrew Giles’ office declined to comment for confidentiality reasons, meaning any announcement about Djokovic’s visa status would have to come from the 35-year-old Serbian tennis star.

The 21-time Grand Slam singles champion was barred from defending his Australian Open title this year after a tumultuous 10-day legal saga over his COVID-19 vaccination status that resulted in the dismissal of his visa on the eve of the tournament.

Djokovic arrived at Melbourne airport as the world’s top-ranked tennis player on a visa he had obtained online and what he believed to be a valid medical exemption from the country’s strict laws for non-travellers. vaccinated, as it has been approved by Tennis Australia and the state government of Victoria, which hosts the tournament.

Confusion reigned, generating global headlines. It turned out that this medical exemption allowed him to enter the tournament, which required all players, fans and officials to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, but not necessarily to enter the country. He was rejected by the Australian Border Force.

Alex Hawke, Australia’s immigration minister at the time, used discretionary powers to cancel Djokovic’s visa on character grounds, saying he was a “talisman of an anti-vaccine sentiment community”. Australia changed governments and modified its border rules this year and, as of July 6, inbound travelers no longer have to provide proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. This removed the main barrier to entry for Djokovic.

This allowed him to ask new Immigration Minister Andrew Giles to reconsider his visa status. In his favour, Djokovic left Australia soon after his visa was revoked and did not publicly criticize the Australian authorities.

As the Home Office website explains, applicants in Djokovic’s situation must explain in writing to the Australian border authorities why the exclusion period should be waived – “you must show us that there are circumstances compassionate or compelling to overturn your re-entry ban and grant you the visa.” Djokovic said at the ATP Finals in Italy on Monday that his lawyers were contacting the Australian government regarding his participation in the Australian Open from January 16-29.

Budweiser stalls to be less prominent in World Cup stadiums

By Sports games

Budweiser beer stands at all eight World Cup stadiums are being moved to less prominent locations days before games start, Qatari organizers have said.

It is the latest late change in World Cup planning which began more than a decade ago in the predominantly Muslim emirate where alcohol sales are tightly regulated.

When launching their landmark bid in 2009, Qatar agreed to abide by FIFA’s commercial partnerships, including the long-standing Budweiser deal that was renewed 11 years ago with brewer AB InBev until the tournament. of 2022.

World Cup organizers finally confirmed a beer sales policy in September covering stadiums and official FIFA-licensed fan sites.

On Saturday, just eight days before the first games, the deal was changed to give Budweiser-branded sales tents less visibility to serve beer with liquor inside the stadium perimeters.

“AB InBev was notified on November 12 and is working with FIFA to relocate concession outlets to locations as directed,” the Belgium-based company, which includes Anheuser-Busch, said in a statement on Monday. “We are working with FIFA to provide the best possible experience for fans.” In Qatar, World Cup organizers said “operational plans are being finalized”. “These plans include venue management teams improving layering requirements for all competition venues,” the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy said, referring to decorating sporting events with temporary branding. and facilities for officials.

“It has a direct impact on the location of certain fan zones,” said the organizers, who declined to answer a question about who made the decision.

Four years ago in Russia, a Budweiser beer stand occupied one of the most important positions for sponsors outside Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium, which hosted the opening match and final. Red tents for Budweiser and Coca-Cola – two of FIFA’s oldest sponsors since the 1980s and 1970s, respectively – were placed next to the statue of Lenin which towered over fans approaching the stadium. main entrance to the stadium. FIFA does not publish the value of individual World Cup commercial deals, but a second-tier sponsorship such as Budweiser is worth tens of millions of dollars.

The compromise on beer sales in Qatar was only announced in September and allowed beer to be served with alcohol before and after matches within the stadium perimeter. Only non-alcoholic Bud Zero may be served during matches and in the stadium bowl.

Champagne, wines and spirits as well as beer will be served in the stadium’s restaurants and lounges for corporate hospitality customers. Fans staying in most of the high-end hotels and three cruise ships hired by the organizers as floating hotels for the tournament can also purchase a range of alcoholic beverages.

Britain plans to protect free online coverage of major sporting events

By Sports events

LONDON, Nov 14 (Reuters) – Britain will consider whether to protect the digital rights to major sporting events to ensure they are accessible via free-to-air broadcasters, the government announced on Monday.

Events such as the Olympics, the FIFA Men’s and Women’s World Cup and the Wimbledon Tennis Championships have full protected live coverage in Britain, meaning they must be available to broadcasters which the public can freely access.

However, the rules currently focus on traditional TV broadcasting, which means access to digital viewing of events is not protected in the same way.

The government is currently reviewing these rules to see if these protections should be extended to the digital sphere.

“As viewing habits evolve online, it’s only right that we re-examine our rules and consider whether any updates are needed to ensure our brilliant public service broadcasters can continue to bring major events to the public at no cost. extra,” said Digital Infrastructure Minister Julia Lopez.

The review begins as the England and Wales teams prepare for the men’s World Cup, which will be shown on the BBC and ITV. (ITV.L). Although ITV is a commercial company, it fulfills public service obligations under its broadcast licence.

In explaining the review, the government gave the example of an Olympic 100m final, which could be shown live on TV in the middle of the night on the BBC, but may not be available to large audiences. if broadcast and catch-up rights were sold to another broadcaster who kept them behind a paywall.

The BBC, which broadcasts the Olympics and the World Cup, has offered digital broadcasting and catch-up availability for the tournament coverage it broadcasts.

The government does not intend to review the protected events on the list itself.

Report from Marsha Blackburn: Thank you, veterans! – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN – Tennessee is proud to be home to more than 400,000 veterans. On Veterans Day, I wanted to thank our brave veterans for all they did to preserve our freedom. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude that we can never fully repay.

As a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, I work to ensure that our veterans have access to the quality care and benefits they deserve. Today and every day, please join me in thanking them for their bravery and sacrifice.


Weekly summary

Throughout my career in Congress, I have fought to ensure that our veterans get everything they need and deserve. This year, I introduced the Veterans Health Care Freedom Act to ensure that our veterans can find and access medical facilities within the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) network.

I’m always struggle streamlining the VA community care program to ensure veterans have access to the quality care they need in a timely manner. I also introduced the Strengthening VA Cybersecurity Act to protect veterans’ personal information by strengthening VA cybersecurity systems. Veterans can find an overview of all available resources here on my site or contact my office for additional help.

American households are expected to pay on average $1,359 in order to stay warm this winter due to President Joe Biden’s reckless energy policies. I join my colleagues in taking a stand emission a stern warning to 51 law firms advising clients in practices that undermine the U.S. energy industry through environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives that drive up energy costs and make energy independence impossible.

The Joe Biden Administration war on american energy was bad news for farmers and truckers. At around $5.35 a gallon, diesel prices are about 50% higher this year than last. It puts enormous pressure on the people who put food on our tables.

the imminence diesel crisis will exacerbate supply chain problems and fuel the cost of living crisis. That’s why I worked hard to get rid radical Green New Deal initiatives so that we can reduce energy costs, ease the burden on our farmers and truckers, and make our nation self-sufficient again.

Irfan Pathan Gives Appropriate Response to Pakistani Prime Minister

By Sports games

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan gave a fitting response to Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s tweet after India’s 10-wicket loss to England in the T20 World Cup semi-final 2022. Irfan Pathan responded to Pakistani Prime Minister’s tweet and suggested that there is a huge difference between the two countries. He added that if India is happy and satisfied with her happiness; Pakistan derives its happiness from the suffering of others, and that is why the Pakistani Prime Minister does not focus on improving his own country.

“Aap mein ou hum mein fark yehi hai. Hum apni khushi se khush ou aap dusre ke taklif se. Is liye khud ke mulk ko behtar karne pe dhyan nahi hai,” the World Cup winner replied. A tweet from Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif caught the attention of the microblogging site after England’s victory over India.

“So this Sunday is: 152/0 vs 170/0 #T20WorldCup,” the Pakistani Prime Minister tweeted on November 10 after the final roster for the T20 World Cup was confirmed. As India suffered a crushing 10-wicket loss to England on November 10, Pakistan managed to oust New Zealand in the first semi-final.

The win secured them a spot in the ICC T20 World Cup Final as India crashed out after their defeat. In the ongoing clash at the pinnacle of the T20 World Cup, England take on Pakistan on Sunday and both teams will be eager to claim their second title.

Football-Portugal can count on Ronaldo in Qatar, says Silva

By Sports games

Cristiano Ronaldo retains the support of his Portugal teammates despite his recent troubles, midfielder Bernardo Silva has said as the team prepare for their eighth World Cup in Qatar. “The reality is that when you have a player like Cristiano it’s natural that sometimes you play for him because he can win you the game in the last minutes,” Silva told the FIFA website.

Ronaldo is the top scorer in the history of men’s international football, with 117 goals in 191 games, but his goalscoring form has been dropping lately. He has scored in just one of Portugal’s 10 games in the past year, netting a brace against Switzerland in the Nations League in June, and only three times this season for his club Manchester United where he struggled to get into the starting lineup. .

But Silva, who plays for English champions Manchester City and will be at his second World Cup, said Ronaldo remains central to Portugal’s ambitions. “When you have these kinds of players on your side you have to take advantage of them, although I agree that you cannot become too dependent on them because it can disrupt the dynamics of the team,” he said. . “But, if we are successful, having Cristiano in our squad will be a powerful weapon.”

Portugal have never won the World Cup, with third place in 1966 being their best performance. “Of course I’m thinking about it. It’s every child’s dream. Winning the World Cup, football’s biggest competition, is obviously a dream we all share, but we’ll take it one game at a time. because I think that’s the best way to win any championship, whether it’s for your club or your country,” Silva said.

“Our goal is to be champions but we have to take it slow, game by game. The focus is on our next training, the game, recovery, training again, the next game and so on. Like that, we’ll get there.” Portugal will open their campaign in Qatar on November 24 against Ghana in Group H, which also includes South Korea and Uruguay.

Buttler picks SKY as Player of the Tournament

By Sports games

England captain Jos Buttler picked Indian striker Suryakumar Yadav as the player of the tournament for the T20 World Cup on Saturday.

Buttler opted to go with Suryakumar, who made a huge impact for India in the centerpiece with his consistency coupled with a high strike rate.

Suryakumar is the tournament’s third top scorer with 239 points with a tournament-best 189.68 completion rate.

Nine players have been shortlisted for the ICC Player of the Tournament award, with those from England and Pakistan dominating the list.

There are three players from England, two from Pakistan and two from India and one from Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe. “I think Suryakumar Yadav for me was someone who played with extreme freedom. He was incredibly eye-catching to watch in such a star-studded line-up. To stand out like he did is incredible,’ Buttler said ahead of his team’s top clash against Pakistan here on Sunday.

Virat Kohli is the other Indian to make the list for his magnificent form in the tournament.

Kohli leads the points standings for India ahead of Suryakumar with 296 points in six games with a staggering average of 98.66 and a strike rate of 136.40. He also hit four half-centuries in the tournament. Buttler, however, highlighted two England players who stood out in the tournament and didn’t forget to mention that they had another opportunity to be strong contenders for the prize.

“Of course there are a couple of our guys on that sheet too – Sam Curran and Alex Hales. If they put in a great performance in the final, they can be the player of the tournament for me,” he said. he stated on the tournament’s official website, t20worldcup.com.

Pakistani captain Babar Azam was different from Buttler and picked Shadab Khan, whose all-around contributions were instrumental in his side’s late push into the tournament.

“I think it should be Shadab Khan for the way he plays,” Babar said.

”While his bowling has been exceptional, his batting has also improved a lot. His dominant performances over the past three games along with his outstanding roster make him a prime candidate for player of the tournament. ”

Cricket – India ‘Clueless’ hammered at home after World Cup ‘humiliation’

By Sports games

Local media, fans and former cricketers didn’t hold back after India were kicked out of the Twenty20 World Cup on Thursday, with Rohit Sharma’s side labeled ‘no clue’ and ‘out of it’. their reach” after the 10-wicket loss to England. England fly-half Alex Hales (86) and skipper Jos Buttler (80) chased 169 for the win with four overs to spare, extending India’s hunt for a second title to add to their inaugural World Cup victory world T20 in 2007.

“India have no idea the ball. Hales and Buttler are too good for this Indian attack,” former fly-half Virender Sehwag wrote on Twitter. The Times of India newspaper said the defeat would not be easily forgotten. “This humiliation will last for years,” he added. An editorial from the Indian Express website was headlined, “Why old school Team India is outdated in the modern game.”

Fans of the Indian team reacted in dismay, with Anand Mahindra, chairman of Indian conglomerate Mahindra Group, tweeting that the “way of losing” hurts more than defeat. “I decided to watch cricket after forever. I regret this decision,” said Twitter user Pawan Khera, a member of the Indian Congress party.

Writing in his column for the Daily Telegraph, former England skipper Michael Vaughan said India’s limited overtaking record was poor. “India are the worst performing white ball team in history,” former England skipper Michael Vaughan wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph.

“Every player in the world who goes to the Indian Premier League says how it improves their game, but what have India ever delivered?” Former England limited overs captain Eoin Morgan told Sky Sports the match looked like “a big boxing fight but at two different weight classes”, while Nasser Hussain said India were “a lot too shy” in his Daily Mail column.

By Sports games

Is it already this time again? As the holiday season approaches, we know many of you are looking for gifts for all the gamers in your life, and maybe also things you’d like to treat yourself. If you don’t know what to buy, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. From November 3rd to November 18e, we’ll bring you guides to satisfy every type of player every day of the week.

Sports games have a bad reputation for being the same thing every year, but while that might be a problem for annual releases, even among these games you’ll find plenty of interesting innovations, and these are just that. a small part of the sports genre. Here we have five sports games that managed to stand out in 2022.

Cursed at golf

Sports

Platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC

Our opinion

Cursed at golf is, in some ways, a traditional game of golf. It has all the counters and scoreboards that players can shake a stick at. In other ways, however, it’s quite different, with one storyline, minimal club options, and it mixes roguelite and map elements to provide a dose of variety. It’s a game that can be super challenging, but at the same time very inviting with great designs and tight controls. If you’re looking for a game that sticks to the sport itself, we’ve got another entry on this list for you, but if you want something a little more creative, check out Cursed at golf.

Mario Strikers: Battle League

Sports

Platforms: Switch

Fans have spent fifteen years asking for a new Mario Strikers game, so why does it feel like when they got it, the game was forgotten after just a few months? Well, it probably doesn’t help that there isn’t a ton of single-player content here, which means it’s mostly for gamers who want to play online or have a group of friends who like just Mario Strikers like they are. If that’s you, however, the gameplay here is tighter than ever, with tons of new characters and exciting new mechanics, and Nintendo has continued to release free updates throughout the year to try and keep it up. breathe new life into the game. Most of this will only matter if you plan to play with others, but a few games this year are more fun with a group.

OlliOlli World

Sports

Platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, PC

Our opinion

OlliOlli is back with a ton of new levels, an all-new graphical style, and somewhat simplified controls that make it much more accessible to new players while still providing plenty of challenges for those who have forged themselves in the fires of previous games. It’s a bit short, but if you’ve already watched the main game, you can look in the VOID Jumpers expansion, which is reasonably priced and brings alien shenanigans to the party. It’s been a while since we’ve had a great new skate game, but OlliOlli World makes us think about doing sick errands again.

PGA Tour 2K23

Sports

Platforms: PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC

Our opinion

If the wilder style of Cursed at golf is not for you, instead consider a more traditional game of golf with PGA Tour 2K23. Although a name change did not alter the serious character of The golf club series, what changed this year was a new three-click system that really clicked with me. There’s still room to grow on the layout, but playing around with this new system is more enjoyable than the old analog controls, allowing me a huge level of precision once I get used to it. Let it all happen in the year 2K signing Tiger Woods to be their cover athlete feels fitting considering his legacy in golf video games. Maybe he’s just a lucky charm. In video games, that is.

rollerdrome

Sports

Platforms: PS5, PS4, PC

Our opinion

Whereas rollerdrome isn’t a real sport, there’s a part of me that wishes it was, but maybe without all the death and murder. It’s an extremely interesting game with style for days and a solid foundation that makes the game a lot of fun. It can sometimes get bogged down by too many competing systems, forcing you to deal with so much that you can’t focus on the pure kinetic fun of just skating around and pulling off amazing stunts and moves, but few games this year can match the height of his best moments.

Wines for Thanksgiving – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Created: Nov 10, 2022 08:00

There is such a range of wines that can go well with a turkey dinner – a well-aged Bordeaux, a Barolo, a Chateauneuf du Pape or a Beaujolais cru.

Back home on American Thanksgiving Day, we only have one option and that is wine from the United States of America. From there, it’s obvious to top the list with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and luckily we have a few newcomers added to our list that are appropriate. Here are a few that you might like to associate with the bird.

In 1982, even before the Russian River Valley in Sonoma was established as an AVA (American Viticultural Area), Gary Farrell crafted his first pinot noir in this cool place often called “the Burgundy of the West” because ideal for growing pinot noir and chardonnay.

Winemaker Farrell is now Theresa Heredia, a specialist in pinot noir and chardonnay. Even in the progressive New World state of California, only 14% of primary winemakers are women. She has worked for top producers in Burgundy and California and earned her doctorate in oenology from the highly regarded and respected University of California, Davis.

The Gary Farrell Chardonnay Russian River Selection 2019 is rich and golden, yet vibrant and tangy. This beautiful orchestra of Russian River Valley vineyards offers tantalizing aromas of ripe nectarine, honeysuckle, lemongrass and freshly baked brioche. Flinty, brackish and spicy, the palate is full-bodied and rich, yet remarkably mineral, with flavors of roasted Meyer lemon, grapefruit, ginger and just a kiss of lightly toasted oak. The Passionate about wine gives it a score of 94/100 and says, “This outstanding wine offers a full range of complex flavor, texture and depth, with grapes sourced from a who’s who of sites.” $45.25 (Stock #6479).

A woman’s touch gives us Pinot Noir Gary Farrell Russian River Selection 2019 which gets a splendid 95/100 from James Suckling and these words: “Aromas of wild cherry, plum, crushed stone and sea breeze. A palette of fresh red fruits and colorful flowers fills the palate. Persistent finish. Attractive.” $53.75 (Stock No. 6480).

In 1988, Lester and Linda Schwartz purchased a section of virgin forest and grassland in the high coastal ridges of the Sonoma Coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Academics told them it was too risky to plant a vineyard on these cool, misty coastal ridges so close to the ocean, but they were undeterred. After experimenting for several years with various clones, rootstocks and training systems, they concluded that the property had the potential to produce exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

In 1994, after carefully sourcing exceptional heritage clones, whose attributes they believed would reveal the terroir and varietal typicity, they began to prepare and plant the first plots of vines. Lester and Linda spent many days personally digging plant holes and planting vines as they meticulously landscaped their 53-acre vineyard with roads, tile drainage and irrigation systems while developing and building a tank and designing a custom truss system.

We will discuss their 2020 Fort Ross Vineyard and Winery Pinot Noir first, and their winemaker puts it this way: “A rich garnet hue, this coastal pinot noir has seductive notes of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry with a hint of pink peppercorn. Bright layers of dark cherry, plum and gooseberry with a hint of clove are framed by plush tannins. Crisp acidity and irresistible characteristics of pure pinot noir fruit linger through the lingering finish. The Passionate about wine awards him an admirable 94 points. $49.50 (Stock #6482).

The 2020 Fort Ross Sea Slopes Chardonnay was selected as an “editor’s choice” by the Passionate about wine, and the winery describes it this way: “Sea Slopes Chardonnay is inspired by the majestic Sonoma Coast and the rugged, craggy ridges perched on the golden edge of the continent. Here, the cool maritime climate produces fruit of exceptional quality and allows us to produce wines of great elegance and purity. $43.50 (Stock #6483).

Ken’s Wine Reviews thinks so of the 2019 Head High Sonoma Pinot Noir: “This dark red Pinot Noir from Head High is very good. It opens with a bouquet of blueberry and strawberry rhubarb. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied with a slight acidity. It is balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a blend of red currant and loamy earth with hints of pomegranate. I also detected notes of strawberry, rhubarb, red raspberry and cinnamon mixed together. The finish is dry, and its soft tannins and flavors linger well. This inexpensive pinot will pair well with a salmon burger. $31.30 (Stock #6130).

Our 2021 Head High Sonoma Chardonnay is from Bill Price, a Sonoma wine industry legend and owner of Durell and Gap’s Crown Vineyards, two gems of Sonoma’s pinot and chardonnay scene. His Head High 2021 is a chance to see the phenomenal quality of chardonnay he and his team can achieve at this price.

Showcasing big, ripe fruit and a steely sheen that keeps it ultra-refreshing, it combines grapes from its excellent (and secret) vineyard sources with top-notch winemaking to deliver a Chardonnay of exceptional complexity and surprising elegance.

Aromatically, this chardonnay is captivating, with a rich blend of golden apple, Meyer lemon jam and honeysuckle. The palate is round yet energetic and uplifting, showing notes of crushed limestone as well as citrus and tropical fruits that fade on a long finish. The dialectic between easy-to-love fruit and refreshing sparkle is possible thanks to Head High’s exquisite Sonoma Chardonnay grapes and an approach to winemaking that emphasizes maximum freshness. He obtains a mark of 90 points with the Passionate about wine.$27 (stock no. 6135).

Even though Burrows Lightbourn has an extensive selection of California Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it’s certainly not uncommon for customers to ask, “What’s up?” Now you know about six, but there are others too, and whatever you choose, I wish you the happiest of Thanksgiving dinners.

Manna Cafe Hosts Annual Golden Gala – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Clarksville, TN – This year’s Golden Gala was an evening of mixed emotions, as more than 150 guests turned out for Manna Cafe’s annual dinner and auction, just six weeks after co-founder Kenny York passed away.

Syd Hedrick and his friends provided live music and the culinary team at Manna Cafe prepared an Italian-themed feast. The evening started off on a somber note as Vicki York took to the podium to talk about her late husband and Manna co-founder Kenny York.

“Something happened on my first night without Kenny,” Vicki York said. “And. it happened over and over again. He died on September 16 around 5:15 a.m. So that night, after a lot of people surrounded me, and believe me, everyone wanted to come. When that last person came home and I closed the door, I was finally alone for a while. I thought, uh-oh, you know, now what?

“I hadn’t been alone for a long time. People really rallied when Kenny got very, very sick. But what happened when I closed that door, and I was finally alone, there was like this wave of grief that started to rise. I could feel this wave of grief, but, at the same time, there was this other wave that I could feel. He came and swallowed up sorrow. It was gratitude. I just felt this wave of gratitude. And… all I could do was say, God, thank you, thank you, for those 14 years. They were phenomenal.

Vicki York’s comments accompanied a slideshow of Kenny on the big screen. After his moving speech, Montgomery County Mayor Wes Golden was invited to the stage by emcee Ken Shipley. Golden also had tears in his eyes when talking about his longtime friend and the work he has done for the people of Clarksville.

Kim Molnar, Chief Operating Officer, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee was the guest speaker for the evening. She also congratulated Kenny and Vicki for the incredible job they have done over the past twelve years.

The evening ended when Sammy Stuard of F&M Bank took over as auctioneer and proceeded to raise thousands of dollars in art and other items that had been donated to the cause. He also mentioned that Joe and Cathi Maynard had generously agreed to match the first $10,000 raised during the auction.

“This is the second year we have called this event the Golden Gala, unfortunately this is our first time without Kenny,” said Ken Shipley, Board Member of Manna Cafe. “We are 12 – 1/2 year olds in Manna Cafe here in Clarksville. It started in May 2010 right after the flood.

“We have at least 150 people here tonight. Manna’s culinary team prepared all the food and it was delicious. We want to thank Syd Hedrick and his friends for being here with us. I think the auction went well. Martin Freeman’s chair cost $3,000 and some of the other items brought in big donations.

Shipley says Manna’s future looks bright. “We announced several new initiatives tonight. Kenny knew most of them, but some were considered after his illness took him away from day-to-day operations. We’re just trying to move forward, inspired by his example.

“He wouldn’t want us to miss a beat. Kenny’s impact on this community will continue for years to come, and we are proud to continue.

SLC appoints 3-member panel to investigate Danushka Gunathilaka case

By Sports games

Just a day after the Sri Lanka Cricket Board suspended its cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka from ‘all forms of cricket’ following his arrest in Sydney on Sunday for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman, the SLC has appointed a panel of three members to investigate the matter.

He was handcuffed and wearing a gray T-shirt, blue jeans and flip-flops, as his lawyer Ananda Amaranath applied for bail.

Due to a hamstring injury, Gunathilaka was forced to withdraw from the T20 World Cup during the preliminary round. He was replaced in the roster but remained in Australia with the team. Since his debut in November 2015, he has featured for Sri Lanka in eight Tests, 47 ODIs and 46 T20Is. (ANI)

‘Qatar is a mistake,’ says former FIFA president Sepp Blatter

By Sports games

Sepp Blatter, the former FIFA president when Qatar was granted the hosting rights for the 2022 World Cup in 2010, told Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger that “Qatar is a mistake”, adding that “the choice was bad”. Qatar’s decision has been marred by controversy, including allegations of corruption and human rights abuses, since it was first announced.

Blatter, who led FIFA for 17 years, was also embroiled in corruption charges during his tenure. He was cleared of fraud by a Swiss court in June. Prosecutors appealed the decision. “It’s too small a country. Football and the World Cup are too big for him,” Blatter said of Qatar, the first country in the Middle East to host the tournament.

He said FIFA in 2012 changed the criteria it used to select host nations in light of concerns about working conditions at construction sites linked to the tournament in Qatar. “Since then, social considerations and human rights have been taken into account,” he said.

Blatter said he would watch the tournament, which kicks off in less than two weeks, from his home in Zurich.

Soccer-Klopp says Liverpool are enjoying a special rematch with Real Madrid

By Sports games

Juergen Klopp has said he expects “something special” when Liverpool take on Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 after last season’s runners-up clashed again on Monday. Real beat Liverpool 1-0 in May to win Europe’s elite club competition for a record 14th time, having also beaten the Merseyside club in the 2017-18 final.

Liverpool manager Klopp, whose side qualified second from Group A behind Napoli and struggled for Premier League form, said the game against Real was a “true Champions League”. “I know we’ve faced Real Madrid in a couple of recent finals, but it’s not that often our two clubs meet in a draw so now we can expect that to happen” , Klopp told the Liverpool website.

Liverpool, who host the first leg at Anfield in February, won their sixth European crown in 2018-19 and only Real and AC Milan (seven) have won more. Bayern Munich also won six. “Real’s European record is the best at the moment. We know that,” Klopp said. “But we also know ours isn’t too bad. On top of that, we know we have Anfield and everyone knows what that means.

“The games themselves are still a few months away, but it doesn’t take much of the imagination to imagine what the atmosphere of both games will be like. There’s a lot of football to be played before then, of course, so we’re will focus on every game as it comes, but yeah, this draw has given us something special to look forward to.”

Everyone would love to see the India-Pakistan final: Watson

By Sports games

The anticipation, drama, energy and fan involvement are completely different in an India-Pakistan match and the possibility of a dream T20 World Cup final between cricket’s two biggest rivals has excited former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson.

The Asian rivals have faced each other once before in the much-talked-about group stage tie of the current tournament at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), where Virat Kohli referred to one of the biggest shots in the game. T20.

The close match had millions of fans glued to their TVs as those who watched the jaw-dropping action unfold before their eyes at the venue, considered themselves the lucky ones.

Now that both teams have reached the semi-finals, albeit going opposite ways, an India-Pakistan title clash is on the cards.

India will face England on Thursday in Adelaide, a day after New Zealand faced Pakistan in Sydney.

“Everyone would love to see Pakistan and India in the final,” said an enthusiastic Watson, as quoted by the event’s official website.

“I unfortunately missed that first game (Super 12) at the MCG, as I previously commented on the match between Australia and New Zealand.” Watson said he knows what he missed and would like to see a new game.

”But from all the reports, everyone who attended that game said it was something very special and obviously the game was an amazing game to watch on TV as well. They played in the T20 World Cup final in 2007 and everyone would love to see it again,” he said.

New Zealand look a stable side with a smooth run while Pakistan huffed and puffed through to the semis.

However, Watson believes Pakistan will be a dangerous team in the semi-finals.

“There are certain times in all tournaments when a team just falls across the line and somehow finds its way to the final and then wins it,” Watson noted.

“Especially when they weren’t expecting to make the semi-finals because of the way they played at times throughout this tournament.

“The freedom they are going to have after not expecting much in the middle of the tournament, so the freedom they are going to have is going to be very dangerous for the Kiwis,” he said.

Nike part ways with Kyrie Irving amid anti-Semitism fallout

By Sports games

Nike has suspended its relationship with Kyrie Irving and canceled plans to release his next signature shoe, the latest chapter in the ongoing spinoff since the Brooklyn Nets guard tweeted a link to a movie containing anti-Semitic material.

The footwear giant announced Friday night that it would end its relationship with Irving, who was suspended by the Nets for what the team called a repeated failure to “say unequivocally that he has no anti-Semitic belief”. The Nets made that decision on Thursday, banning Irving without pay for at least five games, and a day later Nike made its decision. The actions followed widespread criticism – from, among others, the Anti-Defamation League and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver.

“At Nike, we believe there is no place for hate speech and we condemn all forms of anti-Semitism,” the Beaverton, Oregon-based company said. “To that end, we have made the decision to suspend our relationship with Kyrie Irving with immediate effect and to no longer launch the Kyrie 8.” Irving has had a signature line with Nike since 2014.

“We are deeply saddened and disappointed by the situation and its impact on everyone,” Nike said.

Irving signed with Nike in 2011, shortly after becoming the first pick in the NBA Draft that year. Irving’s first signature shoe came out three years later, and the popularity of the Kyrie line saw him earn $11 million a year just from Nike’s endorsement.

The Kyrie 8 was due out next week. The previous models of his shoes were still on sale on the Nike site on Friday evening.

Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James, who won a title alongside Irving when they were Cleveland teammates in 2016, said his position was simple: hate speech, in any form, cannot be tolerated.

“There’s no place in this world for that,” James said. “Nobody can benefit from that and I think what Kyrie did hurt a lot of people.” James, who has been with Nike for his entire 20-season NBA career, said he still had a big crush on Irving.

“As humans, none of us are perfect,” James said. “But I hope he understands how what he did and the actions he took hurt a lot of people.” Irving posted a tweet — which has since been deleted — last week with a link to the documentary “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which includes Holocaust denial and conspiracy theories about Jews. In a controversial post-game interview last Saturday, Irving defended his right to post whatever he wants.

The fallout only continued from there. The NBA released a statement over the weekend that did not name Irving but denounced all forms of hate speech. Fans wearing “Fight Antisemitism” shirts took courtside seats during the Brooklyn-Indiana game on Monday night, a day after the tweet was deleted. The Nets and coach Steve Nash parted ways Tuesday, a development that has been overshadowed by the Irving saga.

On Wednesday, Irving said he opposes all forms of hate, and he and the Nets each announced they would each donate $500,000 to groups working to eradicate it. Silver then released a new statement calling on Irving by name to apologize, and Irving declined to give a direct answer when asked Thursday if he held anti-Semitic beliefs.

It was obviously the last straw for the Nets, who suspended him. Hours later, Irving posted an apology on Instagram for not explaining the specific beliefs he agreed and disagreed with when he posted the documentary.

“To all Jewish families and communities who are hurt and affected by my message, I am deeply sorry for causing you pain and I apologize,” Irving wrote. “I initially reacted out of emotion at being unfairly labeled an anti-Semite, instead of focusing on the process of healing my Jewish brothers and sisters who were hurt by the hateful remarks made in the documentary.” A day later, Nike – which had also been criticized for not acting faster – took action.

Irving becomes the second celebrity in less than two weeks to lose a major shoe deal because of anti-Semitism. Adidas parted ways with Ye – the artist formerly known as Kanye West – late last month, a move the German company said would result in losses of around $250 million this year after the halting production of its Yeezy product line as well as halting payments to Ye and his companies.

For weeks, Ye has made anti-Semitic comments in interviews and on social media, including a post on Twitter that he will soon be making “Death Con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” an apparent reference to the scale of conditions. of American defense readiness known as DEFCON.

Irving has had no shortage of controversial opinions throughout his career. He repeatedly asked if the Earth was round before finally apologizing to the science teachers. Last year, his refusal to get a COVID-19 shot resulted in him being banned from playing in most Nets home games.

The Nets played in Washington on Friday, winning 128-86 without Irving. The 42-point victory is the fourth most in Nets franchise history.

Brooklyn general manager Sean Marks said earlier Friday that Irving’s apology was a step forward, but many more steps will be needed before he can return to play.

“There’s going to be corrective action and measures that have been put in place for him to obviously ask for advice … to deal with some anti-hate and some Jewish leaders within our community,” Marks said.

“He’s going to have to sit with them, he’s going to have to sit with the organization after that, and we’ll assess and see if it’s the right opportunity to bring him back.”

T20 learn more about the older men’s game: Ponting

By Sports games

Australian great Ricky Ponting thinks T20 cricket is an ‘old people’s game’ and experienced players such as Virat Kohli tend to find a way to overcome the tough times and achieve success.

Ponting said Kohli was a “champion player in the game in all three formats” and India were reaping the rewards of sticking with him as he bounced back in style to raise hopes of their second World Cup title in the format after 15 years.

After ending his 1,021-day drought with a stunning 122 on 61 against Afghanistan at the Asian Cup in September, Kohli was at the forefront of India’s success at the the ongoing T20 World Cup as it nears the semi-finals. .

“India are now reaping the rewards of staying there and if they take the next step I’m sure they will produce something big in one of the finals as well,” the captain told two-time World Cup winner. cited by the ICC website.

Kohli, who turned 34 on Saturday, was the leading points scorer (220 points) in the current T20 World Cup and has been dismissed just once in four innings.

India take on Zimbabwe in their Super 12 final here on Sunday.

“I’ve also heard of the T20 game over the years I’ve been involved in, is it more of an older man’s game or an older person’s game than a young man’s game?

”Just with the knowledge, the know-how and the expertise in situations like Virat has faced many times.

“They’ve done it before, and they tend to find a way to do it more often than not. ”Ponting had firmly believed that the out-of-form Kohli would turn the tide and urged the India selectors to persist with him.

“He was a champion player in the game in all three formats for a long time,” Ponting said.

“One thing I’ve learned about champion players, in this particular game, is that you should never write them off. They always tend to find a way, especially when it matters most, to dig deep enough and find a way to get a job done. greatest sporting spectacles. ”If you go back in time about a week, start of this tournament; India, Pakistan, right here at the MCG — that’s what I thought might happen.

”Virat is turning back the clock a bit, playing a winning shot, being man of the match in what I think is one of the best sporting spectacles I’ve ever seen,” Ponting said of the epic four-wicket win by India.

Struggling with poor form and mental issues, Kohli had taken a month-long hiatus from cricket before Asia traveled to the United Arab Emirates.

Ponting said the support of his family and teammates would also have been essential in his return to fitness.

“(It’s) a great learning experience for Virat as a cricketer, to get to a point in his career where he had to change, had to do something different,” Ponting said.

“We know he’s always been a hard worker, he’s always been fit, he’s always been careful with his diet and he’s been a great coach. It worked for him until a certain period where he had to look elsewhere and find other ways to become a great player again.

“At the end of the day, we’re all playing the game to try to do the right thing for our family, our teammates and our fans. And that’s probably the order it goes, to be honest.

”You want to make your family proud, you want to win games for your teammates and you want the people who show up to watch, whether it’s on the spot or on TV screens, you want them to be proud of that. that you did too.”

Beware of Perfection – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Poggio Antico (Ancient Hill), the highest vineyard in the brunello region (Photograph provided)

It is the story of a class of wines that did not exist before the late 1960s and, to underscore their appeal and quality, I will share a somewhat embarrassing occasion.

A reader of this column recently invited me to attend a wine tasting at his home with some of his friends. I didn’t know anyone there, nor did I know the tasting would be blind. I had no idea what a white could be and cautiously suggested a rare native varietal from Northern Italy. It was Greek.

A red was poured and without hesitation I identified it as a great classified Bordeaux, from a great vintage, probably 2009 or 2010, and finally declared it to be expensive. Our host showed me the bottle – no French grapes, no French varietals and a young 2018 vintage. Well, I understood the price correctly, because it was much more expensive than any wine I will describe today.

Once home, I searched the internet for the wine and saw that this sangiovese-based “Super Tuscan” scored 100 points. So attribute it to another instance where perfection and sheer beauty caused my mind to give up rational thinking! At least in one case, these settings resulted in a new path in my life that is more than I could have asked for.

In 1972, Italian wine laws only allowed Italian grapes such as nebbiolo (barolo) and sangiovese (chianti), and if you wanted to call a wine chianti, you had to add white grapes to the mix. A few producers wanted to use French grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and they only wanted to use red grapes in their red wines. Wines like this began to enter the market, but they had to be modestly labeled “vino da tavola”, or table wine.

Finally, in 1992, the government realized their fine quality and created a new designation called “Indicazione Geografica Tipica”, or IGT.

In 1972, San Felice launched Vigorello, a 100% Sangiovese (no white grapes) from the 1968 vintage, and it was the first wine from the Chianti region to take this bold step. In 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were added to this Super Tuscan, as they are now called. We currently have stock of 2017 San Felice Vigorello, which is a dense, garnet-speckled ruby ​​that displays a rich blend of red currant, sweet spice and pungent undergrowth. Flavors are rich and warm with expressive tannins and sweet vanilla notes. The blend is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 35% Pugnitello.

The story I was told is that the Pugnitello grape was saved when there was only one ancient vine, and San Felice, at the forefront of native vine studies, saved it. and propagated.

Critic Vinous says, “The 2017 Vigorello is one of the most compelling wines in this range. It offers a lot of intensity, with more freshness and better balance than other wines today. Black cherry, mocha, leather, spices and lavender form a voluptuous and powerful blend that combines pugnitello with Bordeaux varieties. $59 (#8957).

Biologically produced Volpaia Balifico Castle 2018 comes close to perfection with 96 Vinous points and this description: “The 2018 Balifico, Volpaia’s Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is fabulous. Rich and inky, the 2018 offers a compelling blend of dark berries, dark spice, licorice and espresso. I particularly admire the textural richness of the wine. In this tasting, it was a total knockout. $69 (#8967).

Our Monte Antico Supremus 2016 comes from prime historic wine sites in Tuscany and is orchestrated by Neil Empson and Franco Bernabei, who bring over 30 years of research and experience to the region. Its very intense and persistent bouquet of violets, cherries and red fruits shows subtle and elegant notes of vanilla and toasted wood, mineral undertones and hints of leather, chocolate, black pepper and cinnamon. Sangiovese dominates at 75% and Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot make up the rest.

James Suckling is of the opinion: “Very deep purple with ample purple reflections. Extremely intense and persistent bouquet with elegant nuances of violet, red berries, cherry and toasted vanilla as well as balsamic, leathery and mineral notes and hints of chocolate, black pepper and cinnamon. 95/100. $27 (#9052). The very well made regular 2018 Monte Antico is a wonderful “best buy” at only $19 (#9055).

Breastfeeding also appreciates the Poggio Antico Lemartine 2018 that he feels like this: “Lots of aromas and flavors of ripe cherry and raspberry. It’s full-bodied and layered with ripe tannins and a savory finish. Just a hint of austerity at the end gives it interest. Blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink or hold back. $49 (Stock No. 9078).

The 2018 Fattoria Le Pupille Saffredi Maremma Tuscany comes from an area of ​​the Tuscan coast that lies outside of the Chianti region, and some fine wines originate there. For example, James Suckling gives Saffredi 97 for a score, writing: “A fantastic nose with notes of cassis, sage, rosemary and rose petal. Sweet tobacco and spicy chocolate too. Very complex. The palate shows a nice depth of fruit with blackberries, cassis and fine tannins. It is racy and refined with a direct and precise palate. Just a baby.

He collects 96 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate and this: “The 2018 Saffredi Fattoria le Pupille borrows quite a bit from all the grape varieties that make up the blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot). These balanced results open on a round bouquet of black fruits, black cherry and plum. As the wine warms in the glass, it shows spices, cured tobacco and campfire embers. It is a full-bodied expression, but without excess. $125 (#9203).

NASA tests Crash Landing on Mars – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Pasadena, California – NASA has successfully landed on Mars nine times, relying on state-of-the-art parachutes, massive airbags and jetpacks to bring spacecraft safely to the surface. Now engineers are testing whether or not the easiest way to reach the Martian surface is to crash.

Rather than slowing a spacecraft’s high-speed descent, an experimental lander design called SHIELD (Simplified High Impact Energy Landing Device) would use an accordion-shaped collapsible base that acts as the crumple zone of a car and absorbs the energy of a hard impact. .




New design could drastically reduce the cost of landing on Mars by simplifying harrowing entry, descent and landing process and expanding options for possible landing sites.

“We think we could go to more dangerous areas, where we wouldn’t want to risk trying to land a billion dollar rover with our current landing systems,” said the SHIELD project manager, Lou Giersch of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. “Maybe we could even land several in different hard-to-reach places to build a network.”

Car crashes, Mars landings

Much of SHIELD’s design borrows from work done for NASA Mars sample return campaign. The first stage of this campaign involves the Perseverance rover take rock samples in sealed metal tubes; a future spacecraft will bring these samples back to Earth in a small capsule and crash-land safely in a deserted location.

Studying approaches to this process led engineers to wonder if the general idea was reversible, said Velibor ?ormarkovi?, a SHIELD team member at JPL.


“If you want to land something hard on Earth, why can’t you do the reverse for Mars?” he said. “And if we can make a hard landing on Mars, we know SHIELD could work on planets or moons with denser atmospheres.”

To test the theory, engineers had to prove that SHIELD could protect sensitive electronics during landing. The team used a drop tower at JPL to test the strength of Perseverance’s sample tubes during a hard landing on Earth. Standing nearly 90 feet (27 meters) tall, it features a giant sling – called an arc launch system – that can launch an object to the surface at the same speeds achieved when landing on Mars.

This basic prototype for SHIELD – a collapsible lander on Mars that would allow a spacecraft to intentionally crash into the Red Planet, absorbing the impact – was tested in a drop tower at JPL on August 12 to replicate the impact it would encounter upon landing on Mars.  .  (NASA/JPL-Caltech)

?ormarkovi? previously worked for the automotive industry, testing cars fitted with crash dummies. In some of these tests, the cars run on sleds that are accelerated to high speeds and crashed into a deformable wall or barrier. There are several ways to accelerate sleds, including using a sling similar to the bow launch system.

“The tests we did for SHIELD are kind of like a vertical version of the sled tests,” ?ormarkovi? said. “But instead of a wall, the sudden stop is due to an impact in the ground.”


resounding success

This drop tower at JPL includes an arc launch system, which can launch test items at 110 mph into the ground, recreating the forces they would experience when landing on Mars.  (NASA/JPL-Caltech)

On August 12, the team gathered at the drop tower with a full-size prototype of SHIELD’s collapsible attenuator – an inverted pyramid of shock-absorbing metal rings. They hung the attenuator from a grappling hook and inserted a smart phone, radio and accelerometer to simulate the electronics a spacecraft would carry.

Sweating in the summer heat, they watched as SHIELD slowly climbed to the top of the tower.

“Hearing the countdown gave me goosebumps,” Nathan Barba, another member of Project SHIELD told JPL. “The whole team was excited to see if the objects inside the prototype would survive the impact.”

In just two seconds, the wait was over: the bow launcher slammed SHIELD into the ground at around 110 miles per hour (177 kilometers per hour). It is the speed a Mars lander reaches near the surface after being slowed by atmospheric drag from its initial speed of 14,500 miles per hour (23,335 kilometers per hour) when it enters the atmosphere Of March.


Previous SHIELD tests used a dirt “landing zone”, but for this test the team laid a 2-inch (5 centimeter) thick steel plate on the ground to create a harder landing than a spacecraft on Mars. The onboard accelerometer later revealed that SHIELD had been hit with a force of approximately 1 million newtons – comparable to 112 tons crashing into it.

High-speed camera footage from the test shows SHIELD impacted at a slight angle, then bounced about 3.5 feet (1 meter) in the air before flipping over. The team suspects that the steel plate caused the kickback, as no kickback occurred in previous tests.

After opening the prototype and retrieving the simulated electronic payload, the team discovered that the onboard devices – even the smart phone – had survived.

“The only hardware that was damaged was plastic components that we weren’t worried about,” Giersch said. “Overall, this test was a success!”

The next step? Designing the rest of a lander in 2023 and seeing how far their concept can go.

AAA Gives Halloween Safety Tips – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN- As cheaters prepare for a night of spooky fun, AAA offers tips to keep everyone safe.

On average, children are more than twice as likely to be hit by a car and killed on Halloween than any other day of the year, according to Safe Kids Worldwide.

AAA gives Halloween safety tips“Since Halloween falls on a Monday, it’s likely that the festivities could start as early as the end of the week and continue throughout the weekend,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “We urge drivers to watch for pedestrians throughout the weekend, slow down in neighborhoods, and avoid distractions and impaired driving to keep everyone safe.”


AAA recommends the following tips for drivers this weekend:

  • Stay seated and buckled. Everyone in the vehicle must remain seated and buckled up at all times, even when parked on the side of the road.
  • Designate a browser. If you need to consult a map, take photos, or do anything that might distract you from the road, pull over or delegate those tasks to a passenger.
  • If you’re driving, focus on driving. Even exceeding the speed limit by a few kilometers in a residential area greatly increases the dangers for cyclists and pedestrians who share the road.
  • Keep an eye out for trick-or-treaters. Pedestrians can be very unpredictable, especially children. Be on the lookout for children’s shoes or costumes under vehicles to make sure they don’t cross the street between parked cars in neighborhoods.

AAA Trick-or-Treat Safety Tips

  • To be visible. Light colored clothing or suits provide the best visibility for the motorist. If not available, try adding reflective material or tape to costumes to increase visibility. Giving your child a glow stick or flashlight to carry also increases their chances of seeing and being seen by drivers.
  • Crossing the street responsibly. Cross using traffic lights and crosswalks. Look both ways before crossing the street and keep an eye on the road as you cross. Remind your child not to cross the street in the middle of a block or run between parked cars in neighborhoods.


  • Don’t walk distracted. Save social media updates before or after your sleight of hand. Avoid checking your phone while walking or watching children.
  • Stay on the sidewalks. If no sidewalk is available, always walk facing traffic and stay as far left of the road as possible.
  • Remove bulky suits or winter coats before strapping your child into their car seat. Bulky or oversized clothing can cause the car seat harness to fit poorly, leaving room for movement in the seat, which can be very dangerous in the event of an accident.

About AAA – The Auto Club Group

Groupe Auto Club (ACG) is the second largest AAA club in North America with over 13 million members in 14 US states, the province of Quebec and two US territories.

Make Sweet Popcorn Zombies This Halloween – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Clarksville, TN – Here’s food for thought: Popcorn, discovered in the Americas thousands of years ago, has been enticing people for centuries with its mythical and magical charm.

Today, it’s also praised for its nutritional and economic value, while its alluring aroma and taste help make popcorn such a popular treat that Americans consume some 16 million liters of it a year, or about a liter per person per week.


Consider these corny facts:

  • October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month.
  • Popcorn is naturally low in fat and calories.
  • Air-popped popcorn contains about 30 calories per cup
  • Sauteed oil only has 55 per cup.
  • Popcorn is a whole grain. It has three components: the germ, the endosperm, and the pericarp, or shell.
  • Of the four main types of corn – sweet, dent, flint, and popcorn – only popcorn appears.
  • Popcorn needs 13.5-14% humidity to pop.
  • Popcorn forms one of two basic shapes when popped: snowflake and mushroom.

Green Halloween Zombies

Yield: about 7 pieces (4’2 x 3’2 inches each)

2% popped popcorn pints
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
3 cups mini marshmallows
4 tablespoons lime gelatin powder Red gumballs, candy corn, strips of flat green candy (or fruit leather), green sugar sprinkles

Place the popcorn in a large bowl and set aside. Melt the butter over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Stir marshmallows into butter until melted. Stir in gelatin powder until evenly colored.




Pour over popcorn and stir until well coated. With buttered hands, shape the popcorn into 7 oval shapes. Slightly flatten an oval shape and squeeze one end to form a “skull” shape. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining shapes.

To decorate: press two gumballs into each skull to form “eyes”. Press the candy corn into the skull to form “teeth”. Use scissors to cut candy strips and press on top for “hair”. Sprinkle with sugar sprinkles.

Let the “zombies” harden for about 20 minutes before wrapping them individually in plastic wrap (or serving immediately).

By Sports games

Fernando Alonso and his Alpine Formula One team have condemned race marshal Silvia Bellot’s online abuse after the two-time Spanish world champion was penalized at the United States Grand Prix and later reinstated. Bellot, also Spanish and the only female race marshal in Austin, takes on the role again in Mexico City this weekend.

Alpine, owned by Renault, said on Twitter that it was “disappointed to learn of the unacceptable harassment”. Alonso, who finished seventh in Austin last Sunday but was demoted to 15th after a Haas protest and then reinstated after re-examination in Mexico on Thursday, posted on Instagram.

“I strongly condemn the recent online abuse directed against FIA race steward Silvia Bellot,” he wrote. “This type of hateful behavior is unacceptable in sport and society. It is particularly deplorable that these comments are aimed at one of our sport’s volunteers and officials.”

Alonso had his United States Grand Prix points reinstated after stewards discovered race control had given rivals Haas the wrong advice about a time limit for making a protest.

By Sports games

Are you looking for the best sports games on computer ? For a very long time, publishers have been reluctant to bring their best-selling sports games to PC. Besides EA’s annual FIFA release and Sports Interactive’s Football Manager series, the PC sports genre was pretty rare until recently. These days, whatever sport you play, you should find something to scratch that competitive itch.

These days, you can find most sports games on PC with almost no compromise. Sure, you can’t get certain games like UFC 4 and MLB The Show 21, but who needs that when you have Street Fighter V and Super Mega Baseball 3? Here are some of our top picks for the best sports games on PC.

The developers have focused on creating an accessible experience that is easy to pick up and play. Don’t let the cartoony aesthetic fool you – Super Mega Baseball 3 packs a lot of depth both on and off the field.

The latest version of eFootball 2022 is a a bit of a mess…it’s probably best that we don’t talk about the new version. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with PES 2021, so if you want to play a very different football game from FIFA 22, this is your best bet.

Rocket League is one of the greatest football games of all time. Yes, it replaces an 11-man squad with three rocket-powered cars, potentially adorned with a stack of pancakes or a sombrero, and it’s still a great game of football.

A market that makes sense – The Royal Gazette

The Rise Tribe Bermuda founder paints steps to give her the daily morale boost she needs (Photograph provided)

A Market with a Purpose is held Sunday at Francis Patton Elementary School.

The host is Tribe of the Risea community of support for anyone dealing with abusive trauma.

Clothing, handbags, water bottles and other affirmation items sold through the group’s online gift shop will be for sale in the “motivational and healing marketplace.” There will also be goods and products from companies with a similar intent.

The hope is to draw attention to October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and World Mental Health Day, which was recognized on October 10.

“We recognize it’s the end of the month but sadly that doesn’t end the often silent, emotional and mental struggle that some find themselves in,” the band’s founder said.

She launched Rise, which stands for Resiliently Inspired. Reinforced and encouraged, in 2020, thinking it could help people who, like her, were in an abusive relationship and unable to leave.

Her hope is that the group will inspire anyone who needs help reclaiming “their beauty, their worth” so that they are able to “find a way to shine, even if all they can handle is a smile.” “.

“Rise Tribe Bermuda is a community that welcomes anyone who is genuinely willing to lend to the cause of improving mental and emotional health on our island home,” she explained.

Specifically, the goal is to provide “natural and safe spaces for people to release and heal” from mental stress, and to support existing community education on domestic violence and healthy relationships in families, at work. , between peers and in romances.

“We want to ensure that our rights to these are protected by established and clear laws of this country that directly address this particular area of ​​abuse,” she added.

The woman asked not to share her name as she didn’t want her identity to distract from the work Rise Tribe is trying to do.

“By putting my face to it, I don’t want people to think that I have some kind of degree or degree or something in particular that makes me more worthy than the next person.

“All I want is for people to be happy, healthy and healed. It’s just me – human to human, heart to heart, soul to soul – providing space. That whether it’s virtual or physical, to me it’s basically an expression of love love is a goal to me and it’s my expression of goal so there’s no need for a face for it because we have a unified purpose and we exist on an equal plane, and I just want that to be more important than who I am.

The idea of ​​a online gift shop associated with steps she paints to lift her own spirits each day.

“I make sure to surround myself with affirmative reminders, which I think we should all do intentionally to stay uplifted,” she said.

“It took me about six months to do and it’s still not quite complete because I’m not an artist and I sometimes doubted that I could achieve what I had imagined.

“Each step includes a specific, divinely inspired word power message – from breathing to believing – in a blend of Swahili and English, with the collective message being a guided process towards healing.

The Rise Support Group is due to hold a market at Francis Patton Elementary School on Sunday (pictured)

“The online gift shop was launched on Mental Health Awareness Day. The goal is to provide walking motivation and affirmation to those who have purchased our gifts as well as those who may admire them as they pass by. Light is for everyone.

The gift shop is not only meant to inspire but also to honor “the place in others that is the same in me,” she added.

“Many souls have experienced pain and trauma that may never be known to others. It is not an easy road at all to find that flickering light within. Choosing to be that light is what Rise represents.

She was thrilled to discover so many like-minded groups to partner with for the Sunday market.

“It’s a themed market, an intentionally themed market for motivation and healing. So the vendors that will be in this space are the ones that provide that service on some level. So we have candles, massages and essential oils, yoga, organic breads, natural juices, wellness teas.

“Many said, ‘You can’t help anyone until you help yourself.’ When you have a deep, genuine connection to the purpose, you know exactly what to do with that guidance, you rise.

The Rise Motivational and Healing Market takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Francis Patton Elementary School. For more information: www.risetribebda.com; hello@risetribebda.com

World Cup runners-up Croatia bring rebuilt squad to Qatar

By Sports games

Was Croatia’s run to the 2018 World Cup final unique? Don’t be so sure.

Only five of the 11 players who started the 2018 final are still in the squad – led by 37-year-old Luka Modric – but Croatia’s rebuild fuses that experienced core with a talented new generation.

Victories over World Cup champions France, Denmark and Austria in the Nations League this year show Croatia are getting back on track after a period of disappointing results after 2018.

With over 150 appearances for Croatia, Modric will join Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the most experienced players at the World Cup in Qatar. The Real Madrid veteran is joined by former partners Ivan Perisic of Tottenham and Marcelo Brozovic of Inter Milan. Also essential is Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic, an unused substitute in the 2018 final.

Notable absentees include midfielder Ivan Rakitic, who retired from international football in 2020. Winger Ante Rebic has not played since criticizing coach Zlatko Dalic following the defeat team against Spain in last year’s European Championship.

GROUP F The draw was relatively favorable to Croatia, whose main threat in Group F is Belgium.

The Croatians will start on November 27 against Morocco then face Canada four days later, before taking on Belgium on December 1.

A pre-tournament friendly with Saudi Arabia is also scheduled.

NEW BLOOD The team’s veterans have teamed up well with younger players like 20-year-old Leipzig centre-back Joško Gvardiol, widely regarded as one of Europe’s best young defenders and already a regular in the Bundesliga and La Champions League.

He’s not the only new face with German ties.

Last year, the German side hoped to sign left-back Borna Sosa, who played for Stuttgart and qualified for a passport thanks to his German-born mother. Just before the European Championship, however, it became clear that he did not meet FIFA eligibility rules.

After numerous apologies on the Croatian FA website and fine performances for Croatia, including a goal in the 2-1 win over Denmark in September, the 24-year-old Stuttgart defender is a valued member of the team.

There’s also German-born right-back Josip Stanišic, increasingly a Bayern Munich and Croatia first-team player.

AIMING HIGH With 3.8 million inhabitants, less than Oklahoma, Croatia has the second smallest population of the 13 European nations at the World Cup (only Wales has fewer inhabitants).

Despite their relatively small size, Croatia are regulars at major tournaments, having missed just one World Cup since finishing third on their debut in 1998 following the breakup of Yugoslavia.

Croatia’s recipe for success includes a passionate football fan base and elite youth academies at clubs like Champions League regulars Dinamo Zagreb.

Close ties with the Croatian diaspora abroad have allowed Croatia to rely on players like Rakitic, who was born and raised in Switzerland, or Stanišic and Austrian-born young midfielder Luka Sucic.

Christian Eriksen back with Denmark at the World Cup in Qatar

By Sports games

When Christian Eriksen returned to training after suffering cardiac arrest in the European Championship last year, it was with one primary goal in mind.

“I think one of the first conversations I had with the doctor… was that my goal was to play the World Cup if all goes well,” Eriksen told FIFA’s website in a recent interview. . “It was the dream at the time.” Few who saw Eriksen surrounded by paramedics and teammates as he lay lifeless on the pitch at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium would have considered the dream realistic.

But Eriksen is once again set to be a key part of Denmark’s squad in Qatar, less than 18 months after medics used a defibrillator to restart his heart as a horrified nation – and much of it of the world of football – was watching.

It will be the next step in a remarkable comeback that has already seen Eriksen return to elite football, first with Brentford and then Manchester United – showing he is still among the best playmakers in the world. He made his national team return in March, scoring two minutes after coming on as a substitute in a 4-2 loss to the Netherlands. He also scored with a shot from 25 yards against Croatia in the Nations League in September.

“I feel on top and comfortable,” Eriksen told Danish media during last month’s international break. “There’s really nothing that can stand in my way.” A TEAM TO WATCH While Eriksen is Denmark’s best player, he’s far from the only reason to pay attention to the only Scandinavian team at the World Cup. Their ordeal at Euro 2020 only seemed to make Denmark stronger as a team as their teammates bonded into an even tighter group afterwards.

Denmark reached the semi-finals of the tournament before losing to England, then completed a near-perfect World Cup qualifying campaign – winning their first nine games to secure a place in Qatar before losing the 10th and last game.

“I think this team has the potential to reach another level,” said Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand. “When I think back to that Euro semi-final against England at Wembley, for example, we know we can play a lot better than we did that day.” To underline this statement, Denmark beat defending World Cup champions France 2-0 in their last Nations League game in September.

“If we can play at this level again, we also have a good chance of getting a good result for the World Cup,” Eriksen said after the win over France.

The Danes will face France again in Qatar, as well as Australia and Tunisia in Group D.

OTHER KEY PLAYERS Denmark have conceded just one goal in their first nine World Cup qualifiers, underscoring the strength of a defense anchored by veteran goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, captain Simon Kjaer and fellow centre-back Andreas Christensen.

Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg adds another focal point in midfield while 22-year-old winger Mikkel Damsgaard is seen as a star in the making. The only question is where the goals will come from. Full-back Joakim Maehle was Denmark’s joint-top scorer in qualifying with five goals, while regular striker Yussuf Poulsen scored just one.

“Human Wisdom and Tolerance” – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Sorely Missed: The Late Judith Ingham

Dear Sir,

I was very saddened today (October 12, 2022) to see the obituary of my friend, Judith Ingham, in The Royal Gazette on line. I feel I must acknowledge the passing of this great lady.

Judith was my [second] principal of the Purvis School in the 1970s. I was extremely impressed by the strength, the human wisdom and the integrity of this woman. I have tried to keep in touch with her ever since. Every year Judith would send me a wonderful Bermuda calendar – usually that of the late artist Eric Amos, now the creation of Diana Amos and her daughter Stacey. A wonderful way to meditate on the painted images and remember Bermuda.

I’m sure the world has been enriched by the life of Judy Ingham. She certainly had a beneficial influence on my life.

She always led by example and I think she showed great human understanding in the way she approached her position and her work.

A small example: I once wrote a small play based on an African folktale. It was a child hatched from an egg!

Judy, my then headmistress, observed dryly, “Mr. Morris, you know we’re having trouble trying to teach these kids where babies come from.” But she smiled and didn’t try to stop the children from playing the story.

She had that kind of human wisdom and tolerance. She didn’t want to nip my youthful enthusiasm for drama in the bud, so to speak. So, the egg game took place and I hope no child was really confused!

She had a long and full life. She was a real presence in my own life, albeit mostly from a great distance.

I will keep the love in my heart for Judith Ingham until the end of my life.

A case for remastering classic sports games

By Sports games

As new games are released each year, many are starting to reminisce about older titles. This is true for most long-running game franchises, but perhaps even more so for sports games that typically launch every year. Whether it be Madden, WWE 2K, FIFA, MLB The Show, or other sports series, most communities have long discussions about the best game in the series, and it’s very rarely the newest.

The problem is that it’s not always easy to run those old games, especially in terms of WWF No Mercy, and play them one more time. Licensing and player-likeness issues aside, could there be an untapped market for remastering older, popular sports games?

Remastering classic sports games

The remastered versions of the games have proven popular among gamers. The remasters provide better graphics and smoother gameplay but without any love taken from the game. It’s a great way for game companies to make more money with a game that already has the coding there. On the other hand, there are those who think that remasters are loopholes. Especially when a previous round of new IPs didn’t generate new excitement.

The best course for retro football

It is certainly an option to choose for example FIFA 98 Where Pro Evo 6, then just remaster the graphics. However, it is very difficult to choose a specific year of a game that comes out every year and decide that it is the best choice to remaster. After all, like any game, remastering is an investment. The idea of ​​playing from a certain season with smoothly updated graphics is definitely one that would appeal to users of a certain age.

Although it might seem quite fanciful to produce a game with the old teams and try to cling to the past (looking at you WWE 13), one could argue that Fifa already has the right balance with the addition of icon cards in the Ultimate Team game mode. In Ultimate Team you can have players such as Eusebio, Zinedine Zidane, Maradona, Pelé, Puskas and many other incredible players in the game. Yet the idea that these players have never played together takes away the idea of a retro game.

However, it is possible to customize your career mode and add Ultimate Team players into the game. This gives a great pseudo-retro feel to the career mode.

A question of authenticity

EA previously added retro kits to the game. These were purchasable in-game by earning coins. It proved a big hit with fans who loved seeing their favorite current players wearing the same kit as the iconic legends. Although still accessible by Ultimate Team (EA’s biggest goal) they’re not in the game like they were before. Whereas Fifa may be out of the question for now, it will be interesting to see if EA Sports FC pays homage to legends of the past.

At the moment it’s just pure spit and an idea that I’m sure a lot of people have had over the years. That said, there is always room for new ideas like new betting offers or new decisions made on games that people may be interested in.

Tennessee Gas Prices Drop Six Cents – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Tennessee is the 6th cheapest market in the country

Nashville, TN – Gas prices in Tennessee fell for the second week in a row, losing six cents on average from last week. The Tennessee Average Gas Price is now $3.31, nearly 13 cents higher than a month ago and 15 cents higher than a year ago.

“Relatively stable oil prices along with continued fears of an economic recession are helping to keep downward pressure on pump prices,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “The downward trend should continue this week, making prices at the pumps a little less scary as we head into Halloween.”


Fast facts

  • 37% of gas stations in Tennessee have prices below $3.25
  • The lowest 10% pump price is $3.06 for regular unleaded.
  • The top 10% pump price is $3.67 for regular unleaded.
  • Tennessee is the 6th cheapest market in the country

National gas prices

The national average price at the pump has fallen nine cents over the past week to $3.79. It has fallen daily since October 11, mainly due to lower oil prices and fewer drivers than usual filling up.

According to recent data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased slightly from 8.28 million bpd to 8.68 million bpd last week. Total domestic gasoline inventories fell slightly from 209.5 million barrels to 209.4 million barrels.

Although gasoline demand is up slightly, it is still nearly 1 million barrels lower than this date last year. If demand remains weak and oil prices do not rise, prices at the pump will likely continue to fall.

The current national average of $3.79 is nine cents higher than a month ago and 41 cents higher than a year ago.


National oil market dynamics

At the close of Friday’s official trading session, WTI was up 54 cents to settle at $85.05. Although crude prices rose after the EIA reported that the nation’s total commercial crude inventories fell by 1.7 million barrels to 437.4 million barrels last week, the price of oil fell. earlier in the week due to continued market concerns over crude demand as recession fears grew.

If the market remains concerned about the rate of economic growth this week, crude prices could decline.

Football-Poland in a “very difficult” World Cup group, according to Lewandowski

By Sports games

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski said they faced a tough group alongside Argentina, Mexico and Saudi Arabia at the World Cup in Qatar, but he believes they can improve. The Polish side failed to get out of their group four years ago in Russia and Barcelona striker Lewandowski is keen to avoid a similar outcome.

“The pressure that comes with the expectations of our fans and the nation as a whole is enormous and I am well aware of that. I need and want to feel motivated to show them what I can do on the football pitch,” Lewandowski told the FIFA website. “Although it’s not always easy, I don’t want to complain about it. I always have to find a solution and try to give my best.”

The 34-year-old said Argentina are one of the favorites to win the title and Mexico are always dangerous at major tournaments. “With an absolute legend like Leo Messi as the figurehead, there is no doubt that this will be our toughest game. It will be great to face such a great team with such talented players,” added Lewandowski.

“Mexico fight until the final whistle and never give up. They have a combination of youth and experience, and we are well aware of that.” Lewandowski, who scored nine times in qualifying, will be Poland’s main attacking threat, but the former Bayern Munich leader says his game is not just about goals.

“A lot of people look at my stats and assume that if I score I played well, and if not I played badly, but I’m well aware that’s not the case. not always the case. That doesn’t worry me.” he added. Poland kicked off their campaign against Mexico on November 22 before facing Saudi Arabia four days later and Argentina on November 30.

Football-Aston Villa sack Gerrard after defeat at Fulham

By Sports games

Steven Gerrard’s reign as Aston Villa manager came to an end on Thursday as he was sacked shortly after his side crumbled to a demoralizing 3-0 Premier League defeat at Fulham. The writing was on the wall for Gerrard after a dismal display that left his side 17th after 11 games and only out of the relegation zone on goals scored.

“We would like to thank Steven for his hard work and commitment and wish him well for the future,” Aston Villa said in a statement posted on its website. Gerrard replaced the popular Dean Smith last November following Villa’s poor form, having been at Scottish club Rangers since 2018 and leading them to the title.

Villa chief executive Christian Purslow spoke as Gerrard took the team to the next level, but the reality is the Midlands club are in worse shape than they were under Smith. When Smith, who brought Villa back to the top flight in 2019, was fired after five years in charge, Villa were 15th in the table with 10 points from 11 games.

Under Gerrard this season they have nine from 11 and he has led them to just 12 wins in 38 Premier League appearances. While Gerrard’s exit wasn’t exactly surprising, his speed was. Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers, who managed Gerrard for a time at Liverpool, said he was “bitterly disappointed” by the news.

“It seems like every day a manager loses their job or their job is in jeopardy. I think the stability and the patience seem to be wearing thin,” Rodgers said. “I think with time and patience he could have gotten to where this football club wants to go.” Gerrard is the fourth Premier League manager to lose his job this season after Scott Parker (Bournemouth), Thomas Tuchel (Chelsea) and Bruno Lage (Wolves).

Villa captain John McGinn said the players had to take responsibility for the situation. “It’s embarrassing to be a part of it. We let down the traveling fans, the manager. It’s a bad night for us,” he said.

“It doesn’t matter who leads this team. It has nothing to do with the manager – the players have to look in the mirror.” Former Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris St Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has emerged as an early favorite to succeed Gerrard.

Football-FIFA Infantino concerned about violent incidents in Argentina

By Sports games

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has expressed concern over recent violence in Argentine football after a league game was suspended following clashes that resulted in the death of a fan. Police fired tear gas outside the stadium during a match between Gimnasia La Plata and Boca Juniors on October 6, which drifted into the stadium, making it difficult for spectators to breathe and forcing people to leave in a state of panic.

“Although I have a deep admiration for South American football, I must also express my concern regarding some of the incidents that have occurred recently, such as the violence during an Argentine league game, Gimnasia-Boca,” Infantino said. during an online summit organized by the Ole de Buenos Aires newspaper. “We have to make sure that such incidents are avoided so that our sport is not tainted.

“Football should be pure passion, joy and fun. What happened is far from embodying the true values ​​of football.” The rescheduled match between Gimnasia La Plata and Boca Juniors will be played later on Thursday.

Infantino also traveled to Jakarta this week to meet Indonesian President Joko Widodo after a stampede at a stadium this month killed more than 130 people. The deadly stampede after a league game in the city of Malang on October 1 was blamed on police firing tear gas into the stadium, a crowd control measure banned by FIFA.

By Sports events

Knoxville, TN – A Tennessee Army National Guard medical flight crew responded to an emergency air evacuation mission for a hiker with a suspected broken leg in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park area, Oct. 14 .

At approximately 4:20 p.m., the Tennessee Military Department and Tennessee Emergency Management Agency were notified that a hiker needed to be evacuated along the Alum Cave Trail, south of Gatlinburg, requiring immediate medical attention. .




A UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter from Tennessee National Guard Detachment 1, Company C, 1-171st Aviation Regiment, based in Knoxville, assembled in less than 40 minutes and launched to the incident site around 5:00 p.m.

The flight crew consisted of Chief Warrant Officer 3 Trailson Moore, pilot-in-command; 1st Lt. Gavin Huffman, pilot; Staff Sgt. Donald Sweet, team leader; Colonel Robert Ross, Flight Surgeon; sergeant. 1st Class Tracy Banta, flight paramedic; and Staff Sgt. Jared Ennis, flight paramedic.

Once aboard, the flight crew continued medical aid en route to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville. The hiker was safely transported to hospital after a 12-minute flight.

Selection of the best stadium seats for sporting events in Australia

By Sports events

Sporting events can be a great place to find yourself in the middle of a crowd, cheering on your favorite sports teams. The energy and excitement of live sporting events is hard to beat, but sometimes having the best view is what makes it even better!

At home or at work, we are used to sitting and watching events on our televisions. But when you’re in a stadium or arena with thousands of other people around you, there’s a lot to consider before choosing your seat.

As you prepare to attend an Australian sporting event, you’ll want to know what to expect. What is your budget ? How close do you want to be to the action? How much space do you need for your legs? Are there any other amenities you might be interested in, like protective glass barriers between seats or access to concession stands? If you want to learn more about choosing the best stadium seats, read on!

How to prepare for an Australian sporting event

First of all, you need to know how and where to buy tickets for sporting events. This will help you not miss any of the action because of a mistake made at the box office! Tickets can now also be purchased online, so you won’t need to take time out of your day to queue at the box office.

You will also want to think about what type of clothing and accessories you would like to wear before attending an Australian sporting event. After all, it’s important not only that you look good, but that your attire reflects respect for yourself and the team you support.

It would also be a good idea to take into account your preferences regarding the seating options available in the stadium before buying tickets for a particular game or game. There are many different types of seating: padded benches or chairs; plastic bleachers; wooden bleachers; multi-level platforms – even private boxes! Some venues also offer deluxe suites, which provide additional privacy for other spectators while providing great views from above of the playing fields below them.

For example, there are several stadiums in Sydney Harbor which host many different types of sporting events in sydney throughout the year. These include cricket matches played by national teams representing Australia at international level against visiting teams from overseas countries. Before purchasing your tickets, consider which stadium seating options are best for you, as this will make or break your overall experience watching the game.

What is it like to watch sporting events with stadium seats?

When watching sporting events in Australia, stadium seats are the best way to ensure a great view. This is because they offer special seats that give you an optimal vantage point while keeping you close to the action. With stadium seating, you’ll be able to see every game clearly and have a comfortable seat with private food and beverage service.

Many people like being able to watch games from a distance rather than having to fight for their own space near the front row of seats or on bleachers or benches where everyone feels crammed in like sardines. Stadium seating gives people that opportunity by providing special areas where spectators can sit comfortably. It’s without feeling like someone is sitting on it or there isn’t enough room for their body and belongings when viewing a live event.

With stadium seating, you also won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable in a crowded place or having to stand for hours just to catch a glimpse of what’s happening on the pitch. You’ll be able to watch your favorite teams play with ease and comfort.

Stadium seats are a great way to enhance the enjoyment of any sporting event. As a spectator, the seats in the stadium give you an intimate view of the game and allow you to get closer to other fans.

It’s also a great way to make new friends as it encourages social interaction between strangers who sit together in the game. The atmosphere created by this type of closeness creates an opportunity for fans to talk about their favorite teams or players, which enhances their overall experience as spectators.

Finally, stadium seating allows people to get up and walk around during the game, helping them stay active and enjoy the experience more. The stadium seating also encourages fans to return weekly or monthly because they know they will be able to see their favorite team play live on the pitch rather than just watching them on TV.

The best features of a stadium seat in Australia

Comfortable seats

  • Good stadium seating should be comfortable, but it’s also important to consider the overall design of a venue when choosing where to sit. For example, if you are a tall person or have mobility issues, look for seats that provide more legroom as well as room around them.

Great views

  • It’s also worth thinking about how you will move from place to place in the stadium itself and if there are any obstacles that might obstruct your view during an event (such as tall towers). speakers). If possible, view photos or videos of different areas to ensure they are accessible and to provide good sightlines in each seating section.

Easy access and navigation

  • The layout of stadiums can vary greatly depending on their purpose. Some stadiums are built specifically for one sport, while others host multiple sporting events simultaneously over time. Also, some have multiple levels, while others don’t (or only have one).

When selecting your seat location, it is recommended to ensure that there are no major obstacles blocking your view. Also, keep in mind if there will be other activities during intermission or after the game. Indeed, you may need easy access to exit doors located in corners away from where food vendors and bathrooms usually operate in the arenas.

Final Thoughts

Nothing can replace being in the stadium and feeling the excitement of a match. And with stadium seating, you’ll at least be comfortable while you watch your team play. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current seating or find something new, we hope our guide has given you some insight into what it’s like to experience sporting events with stadium seating.

Tennessee Gas Prices Plunge Two Cents – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN – After last week’s dramatic jump in pump prices, gasoline prices in Tennessee reversed course and fell, on average, two cents over the past week.

The Tennessee Average Gas Price is now $3.37, nearly 14 cents higher than a month ago and 27 cents higher than a year ago.




“Pump price increases were understated last week due to continued fears of a global economic recession which helped push down crude oil prices,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group.

“Tennessee gasoline prices are likely to continue to fluctuate this week, however, it looks like Tennessees can expect prices at the pumps to decline slightly overall, especially if demand for gasoline remains weak and crude oil prices remain flat or decline,” Cooper said.

Fast facts

  • 18% of gas stations in Tennessee have prices below $3.25
  • The lowest 10% pump price is $3.18 for regular unleaded.
  • The top 10% of pump prices are $3.70 for regular unleaded.
  • Tennessee is the 6th cheapest market in the country

National gas prices

Fears of a global economic recession caused the price of crude to drop significantly, down $7, which helped minimize increases in the price at the pump last week. Meanwhile, domestic demand for gasoline declined as fewer drivers filled up during the first half of October.

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), nationwide gas demand fell from 9.47 million barrels per day to 8.28 million barrels per day, and total national gasoline inventories rose. increased by 2 million barrels to reach 209.5 million barrels.

Lower demand for gasoline, amid rising supply and fluctuating oil prices, contributed to the lower national average. If demand continues to fall, coupled with lower oil prices, drivers could see pump price increases begin to slow and even decline throughout the week.

The national average pump price for a gallon of gasoline fell three cents over the past week to $3.88. The current national average of $3.88 is 20 cents higher than a month ago and 56 cents higher than a year ago.


National oil market dynamics

At the close of Friday’s official trading session, WTI was down $3.50 to settle at $85.61. Crude prices declined last week as global economic fears pushed crude prices lower.

For this week, crude prices may continue to weaken as interest rates rise globally, potentially triggering a recession. In the event of a recession, crude prices would likely decline along with demand.

Additionally, the latest weekly report from the EIA showed total commercial crude inventories increased by 9.9 million barrels to 439.1 million barrels.

Gukesh and Erigaisi are very, very strong players: chess legend Anand

By Sports games

The legendary Viswanathan Anand thinks India’s young chess players are on the right track given their penchant for hogging the limelight here and there.

Teen grandmasters R Praggnanandhaa, D Gukesh and Arjun Erigaisi, among others, have had a superb run in 2022, with victories over world champion Magnus Carlsen being the feather in their cap.

Commenting on Gukesh’s stunning 29-hit win over Norwegian superstar Carlsen in the preliminary section of the ongoing Aimchess Rapid online tournament, the five-time world champion said it showed players like him and Erigaisi are very strong and can take on anyone on the other side of the board.

“I think it just shows that Arjun and Gukesh are very, very strong players who can compete well with anyone sitting on the other side of the board. It’s also good that they regularly play against top players because that’s how you follow,’ Anand told PTI on Monday.

A day before Gukesh, Erigaisi had beaten the world No. 1.

The Chennai-based chess legend praised Gukesh and said he is someone who always plays without fear and never holds back.

”With Gukesh he wins games, loses games, but he is very much in contention for qualification. It was a fierce battle. Gukesh played fearless as always. He never held back, kept the game very dynamic. “He was worse but Magnus made a mistake, and Gukesh’s tactical accuracy is very, very high, and (he) immediately jumped on it.

”I have personal experience of this with Gukesh. Very often I will make a mistake and he will jump on it. He is very alert. It’s one of Magnus’ skills and it’s good that Gukesh is showing it and it just tells me that they (Gukesh and Erigaisi) are on the right track,’ Anand said of the 16-year-old. , who is the youngest GM in the country. to achieve the title at the age of 12 years, 7 months and 17 days, in 2019.

Gukesh, who is coached by Vishnu Prasanna, has been in superb form this year and impressed with a splendid performance at the Chess Olympiad in Mamallapuram near here in July-August, with India-2 taking bronze in the Open section.

He looks to be continuing his great run and the win over Carlsen, his first ever over the Norwegian, could be the start of bigger things.

After scoring against the world No. 1 in an online game and asking if it would be difficult to beat him on the board, Gukesh said: “Online and classic are two different formats and require different skills. Due to Magnus’ skills, he’s a tough opponent to play against whether it’s online or offline. Both formats require different skills and I think it would be a fun encounter to play against him in the classic format.” Meanwhile, former Women’s World Champion Susan Polgar, in a tweet after Gukesh’s loss to Carlsen, wrote, “3 teens @DGukesh @ArjunErigaisi @rpragchess have now beaten World Champion Magnus Carlsen! This is not Only a matter of time there will be another classical world champion from India!” International master and noted trainer V Saravanan hailed Gukesh for the win over Carlsen and said the youngsters (Gukesh, Erigaisi and Praggnanandhaa) have improved very steadily and such performances would allow them to play solid tournaments.

”These boys are improving very steadily. Beating Carlsen is kind of an indication… It’s of course online (event) chess and speed… But they still have to prove themselves in classic tournaments…”, a- he added.

”It gives them an opportunity. I expect them (the young Indian players) to get good breaks and can play good tournaments. All in all, we see a bright future,” Saravanan said.

He also seemed to disagree with the idea that the once unbeatable Carlsen was on the wane. The Norwegian player has surprisingly suffered a few defeats in 2022, including against Indian aces Erigaisi, Gukesh and Praggnanandhaa.

“Carlsen is definitely not on the decline,” he said, dismissing the losses he’s suffered recently.

India’s 16-year-old chief executive Gukesh stuns Carlsen

By Sports games

Indian teenage grandmaster D Gukesh stunned Magnus Carlsen in the ninth round of the preliminary round of the Aimchess Rapid online chess tournament, becoming the youngest person to beat the world champion.

The 16-year-old from Chennai beat the world no. after the 12th round.

Gukesh’s 29-hit dismantling of the world champion comes a day after 19-year-old compatriot Arjun Erigaisi scored a maiden victory over the world champion.

“Gukesh just became the youngest player ever to beat Magnus after he became WC! Hats off to the 16-year-old Indian superstar,’ said the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, of which the Aimchess Rapid event is a part, on its Twitter feed.

Gukesh is 16 years 4 months 20 days old and the previous record before his win was R Praggnanandhaa’s 39-stroke victory over Carlsen at the Airthings Masters in February. Pragg was 16 years 6 months and 10 days old when he beat the world No.

The Indian was quoted as saying after the memorable win: ”Beating Magnus is always special, but I wasn’t very proud of that game. ” ” As a professional, I am happy with the way I played the match. Winning surely plays a vital role in boosting my confidence and I look forward to playing more matches,’ Gukesh told PTI.

Calling the win important, the Chennai player said playing Carlsen was always an interesting challenge and he looked forward to playing against him in the near future.

”It’s definitely an important victory. Playing with Carlsen is always an interesting challenge and I look forward to playing with him again in the near future,” he added.

When asked if there was any special preparation for the match against Carlsen, the Indian general manager said: ”I had a discussion with my coach, Vishnu Prasanna, about the playing styles of all the players. event players. We came up with a brief plan of what to play against each participant based on their style of play.” Subsequently, Gukesh suffered a setback in round 10 when he lost to Duda, but rebounded superbly to beat Mamedyarova and Eric Hansen in the next two rounds.

Erigaisi has as many points (21) as Gukesh and is fourth as the race for the knockout stage draws closer.

Erigaisi, 19, started the third day of preliminaries with a defeat against Mamedyarov before scoring against Hansen and the talented German Vincent Keymer. However, a defeat at the hands of fellow Indian Aditya Mittal in the 12th round spoiled what would have been a good day.

Gukesh continued what has been a superb year so far for young Indian players by becoming the third to put it on Carlsen after Praggnanandhaa and Erigaisi, who did so at the Julius Baer Generation Cup online event in the last month.

Even as Gukesh and Erigaisi highlighted their talent and picked up victories, the other Indians – Vidit Santhosh Gujrathi, Aditya Mittal and P Harikrishna – failed to impress.

Gujrathi sits in 10th place and out of knockout qualifying range with 14 points. He lost two of his four games against Duda and Hansen. He drew against Mamedyarov before ending the day with a win over Keymer.

Mittal (12 points) is in 12th place. He upset Erigaisi in round 12 after losing his previous three matches against Anish Giri (Netherlands), Richard Rapport and David Anton Guijjaro in rounds 9, 10 and 11 respectively.

Harikrishna is 15th after 12 rounds of play and is not in contention to reach the quarter-finals. To his credit, however, he held Carlsen to a draw in the 10th round in a 76-hit game.

World champion Carlsen is in fifth place after a quiet day. After losing to Gukesh, it drew against Harikrishna and world rapid champion Nodirkbek Abdusattorov and ended with a win over Daniel Naroditsky.

Gujrathi picked up an impressive victory over rapid world champion Abdusattorov but drew with Grandelius and Naroditsky and a defeat at the hands of Carlsen caught up with him.

The Aimchess Rapid tournament is part of the Meltwater Champions tour and brings together 16 players including five Indians. After the 15-round knockout, the top eight advance to knockouts.

Nashville, TN – For many, one of the benefits of reaching old age (65 to 84) is to pursue retirement and eventually have more free time.

However, being an older person can also present new challenges that people don’t always take into account. Some of these challenges are the development of physical or chronic health conditions and mental problems or illnesses and decreased social interactions.




The ages leading up to retirement can be harder to navigate due to health issues (cardiovascular disease, hypertension, cancer, etc.) and incredibly isolating due to a lack of social inclusion and stigma.

“At this point in an older person’s life, they are going through a lot of transitions,” says Wally Acevedo, licensed clinical social worker at Centerstone.

Many of these transitions can be life changing, such as older friends suffering from physical or chronic illnesses or death, loss of consistent income or loss of ability. It is becoming more and more difficult to receive adequate care for mental and physical health without challenges being present.

Seniors who receive health care face many other barriers, including inadequate insurance coverage, affordability of care, a shortage of trained geriatric mental health care providers, and a lack of programs and services. inclusive. According to research, it is estimated that up to 63% of seniors with mental health issues do not receive needed services.

As our loved ones may experience difficulties in their next chapter, it is important to know other ways that family and friends can help:

  • Educate others. “Educate your friends and family about mental illness and provide factual information to replace any stigma,” says Acevedo. Try to educate others that mental health should be treated like any other medical issue. Remind others that it can be harmful to label someone with a mental illness – remember that this is a person and their illness does not define them.
  • Advocacy. Reach out to representatives for more inclusive legislation surrounding better insurance coverage for mental health and therapy services for seniors. Try to emphasize the demand for collaborative communication between physical and mental health providers and the growing need for trained geriatric mental and physical health providers.


  • Welfare. Try to keep in touch with your loved ones and take the time to listen to them. Encourage older loved ones to take up hobbies they enjoy or participate in local or online communities, support groups and forums to get more social interaction. “The elderly population needs to be reminded by their loved ones that they are still valuable, talented and strong,” says Acevedo.
  • Standardize processing. Treatment can be helpful to those in need and to others by minimizing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Try talking more openly about daily struggles to help encourage others to seek support and eliminate any shame or stigma associated with therapy or treatment.

Getting older doesn’t mean you matter less. Be there for the seniors in your life and remind them of their value.

If you or someone you know struggles with loneliness or other mental health issues, Centerstone can help. Call 1.877.HOPE123 (1.877.467.3123) for more information about our counseling services.

The economic impact of sporting events

By Sports events

When it comes to the economic impact of sporting events, there’s a lot of data to consider. Sports remain popular in many cultures around the world. In April 2021, Statista published a survey of at least 1,000 European respondents. In the age groups between 18 and 65, nearly 50% said they watched football on television at least once a month.

Spain tops the list with 48% of respondents saying they watch football several times a month. Italy and the UK come next with 43% and 41%, respectively. From national sporting events to international events, the economic impacts are immense. For example, this year’s World Cup is the most expensive in history.

In 1994, the United States spent 500 million dollars to organize tournaments. Four years later, France has spent $2.3 billion. Japan spent $7 billion in 2002.

In 2014 and 2018, Brazil and Russia together spent $26.6 billion.

Now in 2022, Qatar has allocated an incredible amount $220 billion. This includes billions for new stadiums, hotels and transport.

Here’s a look at the impact sport has on economies around the world.

Legal sports betting in the United States

A wave of legalized sports betting started in 2018 in the United States. The Supreme Court overturned a previous ban on sports betting. Many states across the country have inaugurated their legal markets. In 2021, the sports betting industry generated $4.33 billion in revenue.

The main driver of the windfall from legalization came from taxes. Sports betting regulation has helped channel much-needed revenue into state budgets. Many states have sought to synchronize their legal betting markets with the start of the NFL season. Billions of betting dollars have been paid out in New York, New Jersey and Illinois. Thousands of jobs have also been created through the addition of live casino dealers to legal sports betting. As states reap the benefits of legal sports betting, online casinos may follow.

Sports tourism benefits local economies

Besides professional leagues, youth and amateur sports also benefit local economies. It includes volleyball, baseball and tennis. Sports venues attract visitors to local communities and help generate economic spending among private developers. It adds billions to local economies, creates jobs and increases tax revenue. These expenses fall into three broad categories:

  • Direct (hotels, restaurants, retailers, transportation)
  • Indirect (goods and services)
  • Induced (employee expenses)

Sports facilities receive funding through grants or county and municipal bonds. Sports tourism is a major economic contributor for many cities.

Offshore sports betting

It’s hard to know how much the offshore betting industry might be worth. Revenues are estimated in the billions. In addition, the global online gambling and betting industry was worth $61.5 billion in 2021. Expected to change to $114.4 billion by 2028, offshore sports betting will be a big slice of the pie.

Help create massive competition among the best gambling companies in the world. Review of the Best Offshore Sportsbooks for US Players is essential. US bettors can access offshore sports betting from outside legal jurisdictions. Some states offer a laissez-faire attitude to these gray areas. This helps prepare them for possible legal frameworks. The demand is there. Offshore sports betting creates jobs and generates revenue for their respective localities.

Most popular sports in Europe

With approximately 3.5 billion fans worldwide, football (soccer) dominates in Europe. Other popular sports include rugby, ice hockey and Formula 1 racing. Cricket and basketball also remain popular in countries like Germany and France. In 2020, a study by the European Union showed that sport represented 2.12% of GDP. Nearly 3% of jobs came from sports. These figures were the highest in Austria. Sport represented 4.12% of GDP and 5.63% of employed persons.

A UEFA social return on investment model also provided positive economic data. The model studied footballers from 25 national associations. They generated 39.5 billion euros “of positive economic, social and health impacts”. This included creating jobs, education, reducing crime rates and improving general well-being.

The economic value of football has helped reduce type II diabetes and heart disease. It has even reduced the risk of individuals turning to crime. Scottish football leagues have also shown social and economic impacts on local communities. It has saved thousands by improving mental health and millions through subjective well-being. Studies confirm the countless positive effects of sport in local societies.

Future trends

The impact of sporting events on local communities remains positive. Playing sports helps reduce school absences while improving physical fitness. The economic benefits are also obvious. Investing in the future creates massive opportunities that benefit the public. For example, Qatar’s spending on the World Cup is framed around a broader economic roadmap. Infrastructure costs are aimed at making the country a leading hub. New stadiums, airports and underground transport are setting the stage for 2030 and beyond.

Stimulating innovation is the goal. The world of sport continues to steer many large and small economies into the future. For more online sports betting and reviews, visit SafestBettingSites.com.

Rafiq set to leave England after abuse and intimidation: report

By Sports games

Azeem Rafiq, whose allegations of racism in Yorkshire have led to a series of sports culture scrutiny, is leaving England to protect his family from abuse and bullying.

In 2020, the 31-year-old opened up about a ‘racist institutional culture’ in Yorkshire, including by former England players.

The cricketer, whose family moved to the UK from Pakistan after a business partner of his father was murdered following a failed kidnapping attempt, is facing abuse and threats, reported the ‘Cricketer.com’.

”Rafiq has received a series of threats both online and in person lately and in one case, captured by CCTV earlier this month, an individual was seen defecating in the garden of the house where live his parents. In another, a masked intruder was seen lurking outside the property,’ the report said.

Rafiq’s father suffers from an illness and constantly needs an oxygen tank.

Rafiq and four others were recently reprimanded by England’s Cricket Disciplinary Board for using “anti-Semitic language” on social media in 2011.

Accepting the reprimand, Rafiq apologized to the Jewish community and said he was embarrassed.

Rafiq was the whistleblower in the Yorkshire racism scandal – he first spoke about it in September 2020.

He then gave evidence to a group of MPs and said he was ‘close to taking his own life’ for the ‘toxic’ atmosphere in the dressing room when Gary Ballance was named skipper during his second stint at the club.

Stats Perform, Veritone partner for AI-powered sports audio

Mercury, the digital fan engagement platform focused on collegiate athletics, has launched clemsontigers.ioa custom site that will provide inside access to Clemson’s sports teams as well as digital collectibles.

As part of the three-year partnership, clemsontigers.io will post team updates, host discussion forums and host virtual interactions between fans and athletes, many of whom are expected to eventually secure NIL agreements with the ‘company. Users can become VIPs by signing up for a 2022-2023 Tigers Membership Pass, which unlocks full online access to contests and a chance to rack up redeemable Tiger Points. The first 100 fans to register get their membership card for free.

“It’s something real that the university endorses – it’s a real Clemson platform,” Mercury CEO and co-founder Porter Grieve told SportTechie on Friday. “Because at the end of the day, the fans want to connect with the athletes.”

Clemson and Mercury also collaborate on NFTs that relate to the sports culture of the school. In a few weeks, clemsontigers.io will drop “Tombstone” digital collectibles reflecting the school’s custom of holding funeral ceremonies for ranked teams they have defeated on the road over the years, including victory of the 2014 Orange Bowl on ohio state.

“At Clemson, when the football team beats, I believe, the top 25 away opponents, they basically take that team and put them in the ground,” Grieve said. “And they have a cemetery on campus with all these headstones against Alabama and South Carolina [and 22 others]. It’s that incredibly fascinating unique thing that only Clemson does.

“So we’re doing a drop where we’ve digitized and reimagined headstones as digital collectibles, NFTs. And we’re doing a super limited drop, only 32 of them and the lucky fans who are there early and get one will be rewarded with amazing experiences year after year. So this year they’re doing this awesome thing where they can go to campus and roll down the hill and throw a basket and take a tour of the facilities, and we’ll be rewarding them with souvenirs as well. ”

Mercury, which debuted in 2021, has similar brand partnerships with Kansas (rockchalk.io), Kentucky (ukbluechips.io) and Central Florida (chargeon.xyz). In the coming weeks, they’ll be launching similar rigs for Oklahoma and Villanova, all with an eye on customization.

“In Kansas, we took the James Naismith Court at Phog Allen Fieldhouse, and we cut it into 100 pieces digitally and sold it in drops of five,” says Grieve. “And each sold out in less than three minutes. People may say, “I am one of 80 to 100 holders of this court piece. And we are excited to do this again for the football pitch and on other school pitches to have them compete to see the most valuable pitch. Like a [Kentucky’s] Rupp Arena.

No less than 85 student-athletes from the four affiliated schools have already signed NIL with Mercury. Former Penn State All-American football player Adam Breneman is Mercury’s Vice President of NIL and Media and will host long-running interviews with many of the schools’ players, such as the Kentucky quarterback . Will LevisKansas quarterback Milestone Daniels and UCF quarterback John Rhys Plumlee.

Grieve said the company’s goal is not just to focus on NFTs, but to personalize virtual fan engagement for each campus community.

“Clemson is different from Kansas, which is different from Kentucky and UCF,” Grieve said. “So each one requires some kind of tailored approach.”

Campbell of Cricket-West Indies can appeal against doping ban

By Sports games

Anti-doping drummer John Campbell says the Jamaican anti-doping authority failed to ‘properly notify’ him of a blood sample being taken and that he plans to appeal against a four-year doping ban that was issued to him. imposed. A three-member independent panel has sanctioned Campbell for an anti-doping violation after the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) accused him of evading, refusing or failing to submit to sample collection at his home in Kingston in April .

“Mr. John Campbell and his legal team are very disappointed with the decision of the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Committee,” his lawyers said in a statement posted on the West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) website. “Mr. Campbell has been a clean athlete throughout his outstanding batting career and he remains committed to clean sport…Our client has, to date, never returned an Adverse Analytical Finding for Prohibited Substances .”

Opening hitter Campbell played 20 Test matches, six one-days and two Twenty20 Internationals for the West Indies. His lawyers said they believe there were several shortcomings on JADCO’s part in notifying the athlete about the sample collection.

“We have read the written decision of the Discipline Committee and believe there are legitimate grounds for appeal,” the statement added. “Mr. Campbell’s position was that he had not been properly advised by JADCO. “Our client will therefore consider exercising his right of appeal at this time after further consultation with his legal team and will make a decision under little.”

Tribes teams up to create a Class II sports app

By Sports app

NEW YORK, NY – The Chicken Ranch Tribe of Me-Wuk Indians of Jamestown, California, the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, and the Eastern Shawnee Tribe, both of Oklahoma, have partnered with Vetnos to create PlaySqor, a first of the kind. Class II sports-themed gaming technology.

The creators of PlaySqor designed the game to advance the scope of Class II while filling a need in tribal sports game offerings. PlaySqor targets casual fans who bet on favorite athletes on a fast and fun fixed odds betting platform strategically developed with a bingo engine.

” It’s the future. We know the best thing you can do is branch out,” said Lloyd Mathieson, president of Chicken Ranch Tribal. “And what better way to branch out into an offering than around something you already know, which is gambling. Because it’s Class II, the tribes really have more control. The feds are always involved. , but the involvement of the state ceases. That’s what really attracted us to this application, it is the possibility for the tribes to strengthen their sovereignty.

“It’s important to us to always look for ways to improve the future of our tribe and our communities,” said Chair Terri Parton, Wichita and Affiliated Tribes. “Because it’s Class II, there’s no revenue sharing with the state, so tribal nations will earn more. When tribes earn more, it means more jobs and stronger communities.

The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma sees a particular benefit to tribal nations like theirs. “We’re not one of the biggest tribes, but we’re strategic, forward-thinking and progressive,” said Eastern Shawnee Tribe Treasurer Justin Barrett. “When tribes are able to scale and properly manage our gaming offerings, we can generate more revenue for the good of our people and our communities.”

“This is an exciting time for our Tribal Nations and Vetnos partners,” said Joshua Berkowitz, Founder and Executive Chairman of Vetnos. “We are determined to bring value and opportunity to Indian Country and are committed to deepening our relationships with Tribes across the country. Our proprietary technology platform and patented games are changing the landscape for Tribal Nations to seeking a lower-risk entry point into sports gaming in a purely Class II format.

PlaySqor, a Class II application, is an easy-to-learn variation of sports-themed games. Developed in consultation with Class II legal experts and using an experienced Class II independent testing lab for compliance with Class II technical standards, PlaySqor offers a fixed odds betting approach.

State Veterinarian Lifts Restrictions on Tennessee Poultry – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN – Tennessee State Veterinarian is lifting statewide poultry restrictions following the detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) last month in a county backyard flock of Obion, Tennessee.

HPAI was confirmed in a backyard poultry farm in Obion County on September 15. The disease is known to be fatal to domestic poultry.




Although the affected site remains under quarantine, movement permits are no longer required for poultry entering or leaving the 10 km (6.2 mile) control zone surrounding the site.

Poultry shows, exhibits and sales can now resume statewide. However, poultry owners are reminded to maintain strong biosecurity procedures, to remain vigilant and to report signs of illness in their birds.

“The coordinated response to stop the spread of HPAI in this area has worked, but we can’t let our guard down,” said Tennessee State Veterinarian Dr. Samantha Beaty.

“We are grateful to our animal health technicians, poultry industry, backyard flock owners and partners for working together to protect our state’s birds. Yet HPAI is highly transmissible and we strongly encourage poultry owners to continue to do all they can to keep their flocks healthy,” Beaty said.

Although HPAI does not pose a food safety risk, no infected poultry is ever allowed to enter the food supply. Poultry and eggs are safe to eat when handled and cooked properly. The risk of human infection with avian influenza during poultry outbreaks is very low. In fact, no transmission to humans was reported during the outbreak that hit commercial poultry farms in Tennessee in 2017.

Backyard and commercial poultry owners are encouraged to:

  • Watch domestic birds carefully.
  • Report a sudden increase in sick birds or bird deaths to the Tennessee State Veterinarian’s Office at 615.837.5120 and/or the USDA at 1.866.536.7593.
  • Avoid contact with wild birds.
  • Practice good biosecurity with your poultry. More information can be found online at healthybirds.aphis.usda.gov/.
  • Join the National Poultry Improvement Plan (www.poultryimprovement.org), the secure broiler supply plan (www.securebroilersupply.com) and the secure egg supply plan (www.secureeggsupply.com) depending on your operation.

Football-Sevilla sacks coach Lopetegui after Borussia Dortmund beating

By Sports games

Struggling La Liga side Sevilla sacked coach Julen Lopetegui on Wednesday after they were beaten 4-1 at home by Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, the club have announced. The six-time Europa League winners have continued their poor start to the campaign, winning just one game in all competitions so far this season.

“Thank you to all the people and all the players who have given me wonderful things here at Sevilla,” Lopetegui told Movistar Plus after Wednesday’s defeat but before the team officially announced his dismissal. “I am sad to leave a team that I love very much. I also thank the Sevilla fans, who must understand this and appreciate the support.

“I have already said goodbye to the players. Now is not the time to talk about disrespect. I am grateful for everything I have achieved at this club.” Lopetegui, who was in tears, received a standing ovation at the end of the match from the fans, who chanted that the board should resign.

It was widely reported by Spanish media earlier on Wednesday that Sevilla had agreed a deal with former Olympique de Marseille coach Jorge Sampaoli to take over for a second stint at the club and that Lopetegui already knew that he was going to be sacked before the game. . Sevilla are 17th in the La Liga table with five points, one above the relegation zone, their worst start to a league season since promotion to the top flight in 2001.

The club’s board are facing questions from angry fans who had high expectations after finishing last season in fourth place after battling with Real Madrid for the title for most of the campaign. “Sevilla FC have sacked Julen Lopetegui as first-team coach after the clash against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday,” the club said in a statement posted on their website.

“Lopetegui closes a successful stage with three magnificent campaigns in which the objectives were more than achieved and a fourth season in which, however, the results were not there, Sevilla FC adding five points out of a possible 21 in La Liga.” Lopetegui led Sevilla to a record sixth Europa League title in 2020.
