SportsBubble’s new sports app helps fans find games

By Sports app

All it took for Lydia Murphy-Stephans to start trying to solve one of the biggest problems facing the sports industry was a plate of hot wings.

Watching an NBA Finals game in 2018, she left her living room to prep snacks in the kitchen — and embarked on a task she says should have been much simpler: trying to stream the game on his iPad.

“The game was on ABC, so I clicked on the ABC app and it was black. So I went to Google and searched for ‘Watch NBA Finals’. My iPad had 200 million hits. I went to the Watch ESPN app and opened it but – this was 2018 – the connectivity wasn’t what it is today. My provider is Comcast Xfinity, and I had to leave the app. ‘ESPN app and go to Xfinity to authenticate myself, to get permission,” Murphy-Stephans recalls. “It took me eight minutes.” When she finally got through, she realized that the game that was in progress in the living room was at least a minute ahead of what she was broadcasting on her tablet.

Wednesday, the former head of programming for ABC Sports and president of Pac-12 Networks, is trying to make the process of finding sports easier for anyone who’s ever felt nervous when trying to figure out which outlet linear or streaming service suggests a specific game and then navigate through the details to get there. His company, SportsBubble, is launching the WatchSports app, which helps users find pro and college sports and esports sessions any time of the day. The service is available now on the Apple App Store, searchable under “WatchSports”, and it should be available sooner on WatchSports.app and on Google Play for Android.

By entering into new rights deals that put some games on traditional TV and others on streaming sites, “we’ve created this very complex situation,” says the entrepreneur. “It’s getting harder and harder for fans to easily tune in to what they wanted to watch, whether it’s free or behind a paywall.”

A new set of rights deals have shattered some of sport’s biggest seasons, with traditional media companies foregoing some traditional league play due to soaring costs and digital gamers wet their beaks over leftovers . Consider Major League Baseball, which now has national games available on ESPN, Fox Sports and Turner Sports, with a Sunday morning series launched on NBCU’s Peacock and a Friday night package streaming on Apple TV+. NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” has moved to Amazon’s Prime Video. Local games can also be hard to come by, between regional sports networks and a few new twists, like Amazon picking up a set of Yankees games that once aired around New York City. Sprinkle in esports, which are more easily found in new tech places like Twitch or YouTube, and the project becomes even more daunting.

The hodgepodge of games and shows points to a growing demand for so-called “discovery engines” that help consumers navigate a maze of options and locations, and also suggest alternative programming choices . “The sport is getting into it,” says Chris Bevilacqua, the founder of CSTV, who is now a sports media player and an adviser to SportsBubble.

Sports isn’t the only area of ​​entertainment where the complexity of access has begun to affect the ease of enjoyment. The hunt for a film can also become a quest similar to that undertaken in “The Lord of the Rings”. Most streaming services are isolated from their rivals, although Amazon’s Fire interface gives users the ability to search for any title and then click their way to the service that offers it, all while offering to pay a fee or take out a subscription.

The Watch Sports application aims to eliminate some difficulties of research. Users can review rosters for college, professional, and esports and a display of scheduled matches can connect fans to the platform the game is taking place on. SportsBubble’s premier partners include DAZN, Pac-12 Conference and Networks, National Women’s Soccer League, Ladies Professional Golf Association, Athletes Unlimited, US Speed ​​Skating and the Premier Hockey Federation.

“This app is not only a new way for fans to easily find and access live sports, but will be another great partnership for DAZN to continue growing its subscriber base,” said Joe Markowski. , Executive Vice President of DAZN Group.

The WatchSports will soon offer a “SportsPassport” feature allowing its users to customize their preferences, set up notifications for game alerts and receive special offers. Sports Passport will also enable in-app authentication so users don’t have to exit the process to log in elsewhere. Pay-per-view event purchases and sports betting logins will also be possible.

To generate revenue, Watch Sports will collect a “referral fee” from certain subscription sports when a new user signs up, Murphy-Stephans says. The “passport” level will also come with a small fee.

Access to sports is something Murphy-Stephans has pushed for most of his career. The former Olympic speed skater and coach found a job at ABC Sports, where she became the unit’s first female vice president and eventually oversaw its venerable “Wide World of Sports” showcase. She would eventually move on to senior roles at Oxygen and MSG Network before embarking on a six-year run at Pac-12.

Some early skeptics asked Murphy-Stephans why sports fans just couldn’t use Google to find their favorite event, and his response was, “How does it work for you?” She has met with executives from every major sports league and major sports media operation, she says, and expects to do more with many of them in the coming months.

“I’m sure I’m not the first person to have had this idea,” Murphy-Stephans says. “But I have the resources and the knowledge to deal with it.”

The Pioneer of Male Nursing in Bermuda – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

In the second in a series of profiles to mark Nurses Month, Cecille Snaith-Simmons tells the story of Edward Dyer, Bermuda’s first nurse.

Edward Dyer was one of seven children born to Kathlyn Dyer and Leslie Dyer, a highly respected electrical contractor from Spanish Point, Pembroke.

It was no surprise that Edward wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps. It was for this reason that he and his brother, Charles, left Bermuda in 1957 to continue their education in Bristol, England, where their aunt, Lorraine Dyer-Bizek resided. Their aunt was a highly respected nurse who helped encourage many Bermudians to study nursing in England. She convinced Edward to change careers to a career Bermuda men had never considered – nursing.

VSEcille C. Snaith-Simmons SRN, SCM is a retired nurse, writer and historian

In 1958 he began training at Digby Psychiatric Hospital in Exeter, Devon. After receiving his designation as a registered psychiatric nurse, he inquired about job opportunities at home. Simon Fraser, the chief medical officer, recommended that he complete his general training before returning to Bermuda. This, he thought, would give him more employment options. Edward enrolled at Frenchay General Hospital and, after graduating as a state registered nurse, stayed on for a further two years to complete his postgraduate studies. From there Eddie, as he is often called, moved to Glenside Psychiatric Hospital in Bristol, where he was employed until 1965, when he returned to Bermuda to work at St Brendan’s Hospital, renamed since the Mid -Atlantic Wellness Institute.

Edward Dyer returned to Bermuda at a time when Parliament was debating the establishment of medical clinics within the prison system. He obtained a position at St Brendan’s Hospital, but only stayed there briefly before the establishment of the clinics was approved. He was transferred to the newly created post within HM Prisons, where he was employed as a Divisional Officer. Barry Whaley, the new chief medical officer, was now in charge of prisons. He recognized Eddie’s potential and gave him full responsibility for setting up medical clinics at all three men’s prisons – Casemates (now renamed Westgate Correctional Facility), the Prison Farm and the Senior Training School, which was then located in the town of St George. . Today, this facility is located in the coeducational facility next to the Farm Jail. His ability to create and develop medical clinics within the prison system earned him promotion in 1971 to senior officer.

Dr Whaley arranged to send Milton Pringle and Edward Dyer to visit various prison establishments and services in Britain. Later Mr Dyer returned to England to interview three nurses to cover up the work he had started. Of the three, Aldwyn Savory was chosen to be in charge of the prison nurses. These nurses assumed the position of Specialist Officer and Mr. Dyer was promoted to Chief Officer, moving from the medical side of the prison system to the disciplinary side.

In 1973, Mr. Dyer was appointed Chief Officer and oversaw the Prison Casemates.

There was a review and reorganization of the Prison Service in 1977, which resulted in the post of Warden and Deputy being abolished and replaced by that of Commissioner. All officers were encouraged to apply for specialist training. Milton Pringle and Edward Dyer passed and received the title of Supernumerary Chief Officer. They were sent for training by the Home Office in London. They trained in Bermuda for three months and in England for three months. The Home Office then sent them for three years to the Prison Staff College in Yorkshire and to various specialist training centers in Britain. They completed the course in two years, and on their return to Bermuda in 1978 Milton Pringle was promoted to Assistant Commissioner and Edward Dyer Commissioner of Prisons. Edward’s nursing qualifications, specialized training and management skills had placed him in an ideal position.

In 1988 Edward Dyer was appointed Permanent Secretary to the Department of Health until Mr Pringle resigned as Commissioner in 1992. This led to Mr Dyer being reappointed as Commissioner of Prisons.

Prior to this, he had been part of the initial planning team for the new Westgate Correctional Center and had responsibility for bringing the new prison online.

Edward Dyer retired in 2001 after a distinguished career in HM Prisons. For his exemplary service, he was awarded the Colonial Prison Service Long Service Medal and Clasp (renamed the Overseas Prison Service Long Service Medal in June 2012).

In the early 2000s, he traveled to Tanzania three times as a member of the Adventures in Health, Education and Educational Development team organized outside the United States but led in Bermuda by local orthodontist Deborah Tuzo.

Joan Simmons invited him to join a group of AME Church members traveling to Mozambique to fix the power supply for a new school the group was funding. This presented a challenge, as the high water table in the area did not allow for underground conduits or cables. Eddie described it as a most interesting and rewarding experience.

Now in his 80s, Eddie stays busy. He loves boats, has built two rigs, sailed his own J24 sailboat and taught sailing at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club. Much to the delight of his wife, Nadine, he used the carpentry skills learned from his father and two uncles to redesign their kitchen. For this superior work, he received the Do-It-Yourself Award from Gorham’s.

For 24 years he volunteered at the blood bank at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and for the past ten years worked part-time as facilities manager at Charities House.

Eddie is the proud father of five children.

It is with great pleasure that I share with you, during this month dedicated to honoring nurses, the brilliant career of Bermuda’s first nurse, Edward Dyer.

Online gambling industry calls for maintaining 18% GST

By Sports games

The skill-based online gaming industry has argued in favor of keeping the service under the 18% GST slab instead of placing it in the highest tax rate category of 28%, saying that the move would hit the $2.2 billion sector hard.

The increase in taxation would not only have a catastrophic impact on the industry, but would also encourage offshore operators who circumvent Indian tax jurisdiction by hosting games in another country, Games24x7 co-CEO Trivikraman Thampy said.

“It would be a triple whammy – the industry loses, the government loses tax revenue and gamers lose because they would be exposed to unscrupulous operators,” he said.

An association of skill-based online gambling platforms has made representation to the authorities to keep the Goods and Services Tax (GST) at the current level for the industry which has 400 players employing around 45,000 people.

Online games of skill include electronic sports, fantasy games, rummy, poker or chess. These games are either free or involve real money in the form of platform fees.

The issue has gained traction as the GST Board, at its next meeting, may seek an increase in tariffs for casinos, racetracks and online gambling services to 28%, as suggested by a panel of state finance ministers. However, the agenda for the meeting has not yet been finalized.

A decision on whether the tax should be levied on the gross or net assessment would be made after further deliberations at official level.

Currently, casino, horse racing and online gaming services are subject to 18% GST.

The government had in May last year set up a group of ministers of state for better assessment of the services of casinos, online gambling portals and racetracks for the collection of GST.

The online gambling industry is directly linked to the growth of several other sectors such as semiconductors, banking, payment gateways, telecommunications, fintech, sports and entertainment.

According to Thampy, GST is currently charged on a platform fee, called gross gaming revenue (GGR), rather than the total pooled amount for a game.

“International best practice also highlights the optimal tax bracket for the online gambling industry at between 15 and 20%. Our current 18% GST rate is in line with best practice and reduces the incidence of illegitimate operators,” he said.

Online games of skill are inherently different from games of chance, and the skill game industry is not gambling or a lottery, he added.

Roma and Feyenoord fans get 4,000 quotas for Europa Conf final

By Sports games

Roma and Feyenoord have each been awarded 4,000 tickets for their supporters in the Europa Conference League final in Albania, with three quarters of the tickets being free, UEFA announced on Tuesday.

The clubs’ combined allocation is less than the 8,500 tickets – which range in price from 25 euros ($26) to 125 euros ($132) – that UEFA put up for sale on its website to fans around the world on Tuesday. . Stadium capacity is just 20,000 in the National Arena in Tirana for the inaugural final of Europe’s third-tier club competition on May 25. UEFA chose Tirana as their hosts in December 2020, a year after the official opening of the new stadium.

UEFA had previously promised free tickets to the cup finals this season “to reward the lifeblood of the game for their loyal support during the pandemic”. The free ticket allocation for the Europa Conference League final is 6,000, with each club choosing how to distribute their quota.

The remaining 3,500 tickets are intended for local organisers, football officials and UEFA sponsors and broadcasters.

Roma’s previous two European finals have seen them play at their own Stadio Olimpico, which now seats 70,000. Roma lost the 1984 European Cup final to Liverpool and were beaten by Inter Milan in the 1991 UEFA Cup final second leg.

Feyenoord also hosted their last European final, winning the 2002 UEFA Cup final against Borussia Dortmund watched by over 45,000 spectators in Rotterdam.

The final is a higher-profile match than many envisioned in 2018 when UEFA decided to create the Europa Conference League. Its aim was to give clubs from lower-ranked countries more opportunities to remain involved in European competitions beyond December. Azerbaijani and Israeli clubs — Qarabag and Maccabi Tel-Aviv — reached the qualifiers in February, and Norway’s Bodø/Glimt were knocked out in the quarter-finals in April by Roma.

Games-Hangzhou Asian Games postponed to 2023 due to COVID

By Sports games

The Asian Games which were to be held in the Chinese city of Hangzhou in September have been postponed to 2023 due to the COVID-19 situation, the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) announced on Friday. The 19th edition of the Multi-Sports Games, second in size to the Summer Olympics, was scheduled to take place from September 10 to 25 in the provincial capital of Zhejiang, some 175 kilometers southwest of China’s financial center of Shanghai.

The OCA said in a statement after its board meeting in Tashkent that the Hangzhou Organizing Committee (HAGOC) had been well prepared to stage the Games despite “global challenges”. “However, the decision was made by all stakeholders after carefully considering the pandemic situation and the size of the Games.”

“The name and emblem of the 19th Asian Games will remain unchanged, and the OCA believes that the Games will be a complete success thanks to the joint efforts of all parties.” OCA acting president Randhir Singh told Reuters a working group had been set up to decide on new dates for the Games.

“It was because of the COVID problem (…) that the Games had to be postponed for a year, whatever month they decide,” Singh said from Tashkent. “We have formed a working group, they will look into the matter…and decide on the timing with the agreement of the Chinese Olympic Committee.”

Singh felt sorry for the athletes, but felt that hosting the Games next year would mean they would have a better chance of culminating in the Paris Olympics in 2024. ASIAN YOUTH GAMES CANCELED

Organizers said in early April that all 56 competition venues for the Games had been completed as the city prepared to welcome more than 11,000 athletes from 44 nations and territories. “With the support and guidance of the OCA and the Chinese Olympic Committee, we will continue to do a good job in the preparatory work and believe that the postponed Asian Games in Hangzhou will be a complete success,” HAGOC said on the Chinese version. of their website.

The Asian Youth Games, scheduled for December in Shantou, have been purely and simply canceled. Tashkent will host its next edition in 2025. The World University Games, scheduled for next month in the southwest Chinese city of Chengdu, have also been postponed until next year.

Shanghai said on Friday it had effectively brought China’s worst COVID-19 outbreak under control after a month-long lockdown of nearly 25 million people. Other cities, including the capital Beijing, are facing a wave of additional restrictions, frequent testing and targeted lockdowns.

Most international sporting events in China have been postponed or canceled since the start of the pandemic, with the notable exception of the Winter Olympics, which took place in Beijing under strict health controls in February. The start of the Chinese Super League soccer competition has been delayed and matches, if they were to take place, could be played on a closed circuit, state media reported.

Asian Games in Hangzhou postponed due to COVID outbreak in China

By Sports games

The Asian Games in Hangzhou, which were due to take place from September 10-25, were postponed indefinitely on Friday amid a recent spike in COVID-19 cases in China, a development that was expected and drew mixed reactions from the from Indian athletes.

The new dates will be announced soon but as 2024 is the Olympic year, the Asian Games could be postponed to 2023 when the pandemic situation is under control.

An air of uncertainty has hung over the 19th edition of the Multi-Sport Games since Shanghai suffered a new wave of the pandemic, forcing the city into lockdown. The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) executive board met in Tashkent on Friday to discuss the situation and deemed postponing the Games was the best decision under the circumstances.

”Following extensive discussions with the Chinese Olympic Committee (COC) and the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee (HAGOC), the OCA Executive Council (EC) today decided to postpone the 19th Games. Asia, which was to be held in Hangzhou, China. , September 10-25, 2022,” the OCA said in a statement posted on its website.

About 11,000 athletes were expected to compete in 61 sports at the Games. It is the first big-budget multi-sport event to be postponed after the COVID-19 pandemic forced Tokyo Olympics organizers to delay the quadrennial event by a year until 2021. of the 19th Asian Games will be agreed between the OCA, COC and HAGOC and announced in the near future,” the OCA statement added.

The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) said the postponement of the Games is “certainly a bit of a setback” for some athletes.

”The postponement of any major event or Games is a disappointment for the athletes. They age a few months or a year, whatever the case when the Games are rescheduled,’ IOA Secretary General Rajeev Mehta told PTI.

“Many of our athletes had already started training and preparations for the Asian Games, and the IOA cares about that. The postponement was on the planned lines due to COVID-19 but it was not in our hands.” Indian men’s hockey team goalkeeper PR Sreejesh said the delay of the Games is disappointing, but it gives them more time to prepare.

The winners of the men’s and women’s hockey events will gain direct entry to the Paris 2024 Olympics.

“It’s a disappointment, but somewhere down the line we expected it given the situation in China. But we want to see it from a positive perspective because we will have more time to prepare for the Asian Games,” Sreejesh told PTI.

”We already have experience of playing in postponed Games (Tokyo Olympics) so we know what it takes to stay fit.” ”The positive part is that there are a lot of tournaments ahead of us, such as the Asian Cup, the Pro League matches in Belgium, the Commonwealth Games and the World Cup next year. The dates for the postponed Asian Games have not yet been announced, so we will have enough time to prepare as well as possible for the Asian Games. The draw against Norway will not collide now.

”It’s good for us. Our players will not be under pressure to play two big events in the space of seven days. We can send the best teams to both events. We can focus on the Davis Cup first and then prepare,” said AITA Secretary General Anil Dhupar.

The Davis Cup fixture away from India is scheduled in Norway on September 16-17 or 17-18.

The OCA said HAGOC was well prepared to deliver the Games on time despite the global challenges. However, after carefully considering the pandemic situation and the scale of the Games, the decision was made by all stakeholders.

The name and emblem of the 19th Asian Games will remain unchanged, and the OCA believes that the Games will be a complete success thanks to the joint efforts of all parties.

The development comes at a time when China is battling a record number of daily cases in Shanghai, which is only a short train ride from Games host city Hangzhou. Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province, is about 175 kilometers southwest of Shanghai. According to the latest update, Zhejiang has recorded 3,124 positive cases and one death.

Additionally, the 3rd Asian Youth Games, scheduled for Dec. 20-28 in Shantou, China, has also been canceled.

The next Asian Youth Games will therefore be held in 2025 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The World University Games, another major multi-sport event to be held in the western Chinese city of Chengdu from June 26 to July 7, has also been postponed to next year, organizers said on Friday. The Games, which were due to see the participation of around 6,000 athletes, were due to take place last year but were postponed to 2022 following the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics. The Switzerland-based International University Sports Federation (FISU), which runs the Games, said they would be held in 2023 but gave no date or details.

“Following extensive discussions between FISU, the Chengdu 2021 Organizing Committee and other stakeholders, a decision has been made to postpone the FISU World University Games until 2023,” FISU said. on its official website.

India won four medals in the last edition in Naples, Italy in 2019, including a gold medal in the 100m from Dutee Chand.

FEATURE-Thank you, Mom, for not throwing away my baseball cards

By Sports games

Like most moms, mine had many wonderful qualities. Among the feats that made her a star: She never threw away my baseball cards.

I started collecting them around age 12 in the mid-1960s, picking up packages after school for a nickel each at a local drug store in West Orange, New Jersey, where I grew up. I can still smell the thin pink chewing gum pellets that were inside each packet and have contributed to countless cavities. My cards were in better shape than those of most other kids in my neighborhood. It was because they were turning over their cards in a game they were playing on a patio behind a friend of mine’s house.

With the flip of a hand, a child dropped a card which landed either showing the image of the ballplayer on the front or on the back with his stats. If the next child’s card lands the same way, that child has won the opponent’s card. If the cards do not match, the first player wins. I’ve never been a big fan of flipping – or, for that matter, sticking cards between the spokes of a bike wheel to generate a loud click. Both practices damaged them.

Unlike many of my friends, I didn’t just collect players from my favorite team – in my case, the Los Angeles Dodgers – and trade others. I collected stars, which meant being willing to keep players on teams I hated, like the New York Yankees. As a result, I ended up with the cards of many players who went on to join the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York – including Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Frank Robinson, Carl Yastrzemski and Stan Musial.

When I went to college, my collection of over 1,000 cards sat in shoeboxes in my closet. I don’t remember telling my mother to keep them. But she did, with one exception. At some point, she got rid of the bulletin board above my desk. Pressed into the lower right corner was the 1955 Rookie of the Year card for my hero, Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax. I had ordered it directly from the company that made the cards – Topps Chewing Gum Inc in Brooklyn – for about 15 cents, sending a dime and a nickel stuck on a file card.

The Koufax card would probably be worth several thousand dollars today. DECISION TIME

In the years that followed, I rarely looked at my collection. But I’ve carried the shoeboxes around for decades, along with stamp albums and old coins I collected as a kid. When I moved to London in 1998, I started renting a series of safes in the United States to store everything. Rental fees eventually exceeded $1,000.

Then, after more than 50 years, I had to decide what to do with my baseball cards. My mother passed away in 2015. Two years ago, my sister sold her house in northern New Jersey and closed her bank account – as well as a safe I used to store my cards because I didn’t have my own United States. Account. This meant that I had to find a new reserve for my collection.

How much were my cards worth? My attempts to find out had always ended in failure. Sometime in the 1980s I took them to a baseball card show and was told they might fetch around $700. But then, just as Wall Street does from time to time, the baseball card market crashed. About a year ago I started seeing reports that the sports memorabilia market was back in vogue. I consulted a longtime friend who used to collect cards. He suggested selling my collection through Lelands, an online auction house in Matawan, New Jersey.

So, last November, my sister and I went to a mall to meet Keith Breitweiser, a company acquisition specialist. To prepare, I had gone through all the maps for the first time since my teenage years. Using an online price guide, I narrowed down the ones I thought were the most valuable, a task that took a long evening. They were nearly 450.

Keith met us in a small conference room. I lay a thick black binder containing my cards on the table. He was quick to say that these types of cards were the “bread and butter” of the auction house. He would be interested in offering them at the next sale – the “Winter Classic 2022”. I asked what he thought they were looking for.

He estimated they could cost between $3,000 and $5,000. Another specialist with more experience selling baseball cards said he thought they could fetch over $5,000. But the pair said it was hard to predict as they believed the market had already peaked. Keith also explained that Lelands would charge a 15% commission plus a fee to get about a dozen of my cards professionally graded – about $30 per card. Appraisal companies authenticate cards and rate them on a scale of 1 to 10, taking into account factors such as the condition of the edges and corners, and the centering of the images. A high rating can mean a lot more money.

Intrigued, I told Keith to go and left my cards with Lelands. “SMART MONEY”

The online auction started on February 13 and lasted for a month. My cards came in four separate bundles: 10 Mickey Mantle cards from 1958-1968, a Nolan Ryan rookie card, 40 cards with many Hall of Famers, and the remaining 379 cards. They were hardly one of the highlights of the auction. Among its 1,200 prizes, “Winter Classic 2022” included a 2000 “Championship Rookie Ticket” autographed by a young football quarterback named Tom Brady, a 1933 baseball card signed by Babe Ruth, and a 1936 card autographed by Joe DiMaggio.

My cards quickly attracted offers, however. I could follow online. After two weeks, the total of the four lots had reached $3,486. “It’s gonna heat up in the end,” texted me. “Smart money is coming late.”

With nine days to go, bidding totaled $4,469. By the final day, with around 12 hours remaining, they had hit $6,333, beating Keith’s prediction. The Mickey Mantles were worth up to $940, the Nolan Ryan rookie card was up to $777, the Hall of Famers was up to $1,832, and the remaining prize was up to $2,784. And my friend was right.

When the auction ended late in the evening of March 12 – while I was sleeping in London – the total was $7,719. The buyers, all anonymous, paid a 20% commission on top of their winning bids. This meant my cards were actually selling for $9,263, far exceeding my expectations. After subtracting the 15% seller commission on $7,719 and grading fees, I made about $6,200.

As another friend – a longtime foreign correspondent whose mother threw away her baseball cards years ago – said via text: “Home run! (Editing by Michael Williams and Paulo Prada.)

Carbon-neutral World Cup is a game-changer in sporting events, Gord official says

By Sports events

Qatar’s “voluntary environmental commitment” will set a new precedent both locally and internationally in terms of hosting future sporting events, an official with the Gulf Organization for Research and Development (Gord) has said.
“In FIFA history, Qatar 2022 will be the first carbon-neutral World Cup. With a sustainability advisory from Gord, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) has taken several steps to reduce tournament GHG emissions while using carbon offset services for unavoidable emissions.
“In Qatar, we are seeing increased interest from organizers approaching the Global Carbon Council (GCC) to explore the mechanisms behind the carbon neutrality of events,” said Gord Founding Chairman Dr. Yousef al-Horr, to the Gulf Times in an interview.
Dr al-Horr stressed that the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be a “first of its kind”, thus setting a global benchmark for the organization of future World Cups and other tournaments around the world.
He also pointed out that Qatar has exceeded FIFA’s expectations, not only through its commitment to carbon neutrality, but also by taking voluntary measures as part of its commitment to environmental conservation. .
Citing Al Janoub Stadium, Dr al-Horr said the facility recently received all three green building certifications under the Global Sustainability Rating System (GSAS). The facility is now the first stadium to have all three certifications: GSAS Design & Build, GSAS Construction Management and GSAS Operations.
“The adoption of GSAS Operations was an entirely voluntary decision that Qatar plans to pursue for all eight stadiums to ensure the sustainable operation of the facilities. Globally, such initiatives will inspire future host nations and create a lasting legacy. from the State of Qatar,” he said.
He said Gord was in the process of finalizing GSAS certifications for the eight stadiums that will host FIFA supporters in 2022. Audits for GSAS operations are currently underway to assess the impact on stadium sustainability in the phase post-occupation, he noted.
To ensure environmentally responsible development and operations of temporary sites and fan zones, Gord has also developed a unique EcoLeaf GSAS for camp and festival sites as a tourism sustainability certification. It is designed to improve the performance of purpose-built temporary facilities and reduce the negative impacts generated by their activity, Dr al-Horr explained.
In the context of carbon neutrality, Dr al-Horr said Gord, with the support of SC, created the Global Carbon Council (GCC) – the Mena region’s first voluntary carbon market catalyzing the financing of the climate change mitigation globally and in particular for the region, which has remained vastly underrepresented when it comes to the use of carbon market instruments to address climate change.
“GCC credits will be used to offset host country emissions related to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, but the legacy will continue for years to come. Today, this GCC program is the only internationally accredited program CORSIA in the countries of the South.
“It is also accredited by ICROA and has over 260 registered GHG reduction projects across the world, including local and regional projects, with the hope that this number will grow to as many as 500 projects by the end of the year. end of 2022. Collectively, over 20 million carbon credits are expected to be issued by GCC by the end of the year,” Dr. al-Horr said.
In terms of research activities, he said Gord and SC were collaborating on Al Thumama’s ‘Showcase Stadium’, originally built as part of Qatar’s bid to prove that football can be played in the Middle. East despite the difficult terrain of the region.
Since Qatar’s winning bid for the tournament, the facility has transformed beyond a showcase space. Backed by the SC, the facility currently provides a platform for Gord’s pilot-scale research and development in anticipation of supporting one of the most enduring tournaments in FIFA history, said the Dr. al-Horr.
“Essentially, the showcase site reflects SC’s position on environmental sustainability, to which the host country has demonstrated an unprecedented commitment. As a breeding ground for future technologies, Al Thumama Showcase Stadium nurtures scientific research to develop innovations in the field of environmental sustainability,” he added.
According to Dr. al-Horr, Gord and SC are also collaborating to implement GSAS in all stages. In order to mitigate as much as possible the carbon footprint related to the development of World Cup venues, the SC has chosen, after FIFA’s approval, GSAS as the green building certification system for all stadiums.
“Through the adoption of GSAS, SC introduced a life cycle approach for the first time in FIFA history by implementing sustainability best practices across all stadiums throughout the life cycle. of the facility which included the design, construction and operation phases.
“In the same vein, SC has voluntarily implemented GSAS Construction Management certification for stadiums to ensure that all contractors follow sustainability best practices during construction. With the World Cup less than a year away, stadiums are pursuing GSAS Operations certification to ensure sustainable operation and management of venues in the post-construction phase,” added Dr al-Horr.

Goal! Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ shirt sets auction record

By Sports games

The shirt worn by Diego Maradona when he scored the controversial ‘Hand of God’ goal against England in the 1986 World Cup sold for 7.1 million pounds ($9.3 million ), the highest price ever paid at auction for a sports memorabilia.

Auctioneer Sotheby’s sold the shirt in an online auction which ended on Wednesday. He did not identify the buyer.

Maradona scored twice in the quarter-final match in Mexico City on June 22, 1986, just four years after Britain and Argentina fought a war for the Falkland Islands. The Argentine great’s first goal was ruled as a header, but the ball had bounced off Maradona’s fist, out of sight of the referee.

Maradona said afterwards that he was marked “a little with the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God”. Maradona’s second goal saw him dribble the ball past almost the entire England team before beating keeper Peter Shilton. In 2002, he was voted “goal of the century” in a FIFA poll.

After the match, Maradona swapped his shirt with England midfielder Steve Hodge, who gave it on long-term loan to England’s National Football Museum in Manchester before putting it up for sale.

Maradona, considered by many to be the greatest player of all time, struggled with cocaine abuse and other excesses and died in November 2020 at age 60.

The previous sports memorabilia record was $8.8 million paid at an auction in December 2019 for the manifesto that launched the modern Olympic movement. The previous sportswear record was $5.64 million for a Babe Ruth New York Yankees jersey in 2019.

Sale prices include an auction house commission known as the buyer’s premium.

Football-Leicester given injury boost ahead of Rome trip

By Sports games

Leicester City have been given a major boost ahead of Thursday’s second leg of the Europa Conference League semi-final at AS Roma with manager Brendan Rodgers saying Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall are available for selection. Dewsbury-Hall (calf) and Maddison (hip) missed Sunday’s 3-1 Premier League loss to Tottenham Hotspur, while Vardy came on as a substitute, making his first appearance since early March after an injury to the knee.

Leicester drew 1-1 with Roma in the first leg at home last week. “They’re fine,” Rodgers told the club’s website on Wednesday when asked about Dewsbury-Hall and Maddison. “They trained yesterday (Tuesday) and did well.”

Asked about Vardy’s fitness, he replied: “He’s doing well, so he’s fine for the game.” Leicester traveled to Rome without Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand, with both players sidelined with knee problems.

“Everyone (the others) is available and ready,” Rodgers added. “In recent weeks, we have recovered players. But I still had to manage the group to get there. “With all the games, we had the risk of going to the semi-finals with some of our best payers unavailable .

“It was a risk which, for me, would be really too much. It was the idea of ​​making the changes. Ideally we wouldn’t do so much, but we have to look after the players until the big games. It’s our biggest game of the season.”

Bears Great fired from Chicago sports website after allegedly ‘physically attacking’ co-worker | NFL

By Sports website

Former Chicago Bears center Olin Kreutz was fired from his job at CHGO Sports on Monday after the site said he “physically assaulted” a co-worker there, according to reports.

“On Monday morning an incident occurred in which Olin Kreutz physically attacked a CHGO employee,” he said in a post on Twitter. “Effective today, Olin Kreutz is no longer with CHGO. While we were shocked by the incident, we are grateful that the employee is doing well. The health and safety of our employees is of the utmost concern. utmost importance and we will not tolerate any action that would endanger this.”

And Kreutz seemed to kind of own it on Twitter, retweet the CHGO post with an oft-used Mike Tyson meme that reads, “Social media has made you all too comfortable to disrespect people and not get punched in the face for it.”

Kreutz, who played center for the Bears for 14 seasons, also works for NBC Sports Chicago. He worked for CHGO Sports over the weekend with his NFL Draft coverage.

He was a six-time Pro Bowler for the Bears and was selected to the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team.

Written to Commissioner to act on encroachments: Mayor of EDMC

By Sports games

East Delhi Mayor Shyam Sunder Aggarwal said on Monday he had written to the City Commissioner of EDMC urging him to ‘take action and not just inspect’ sites where encroachments are found .

His statement comes amid anti-encroachment campaigns by civic bodies in various parts of the city over the past few days.

An anti-encroachment campaign is underway but there is some “backlog at the departmental level”, Aggarwal said in a statement released by the East Delhi Mayor’s office.

“To find a permanent solution to congestion, it is important to remove any encroachment,” he said.

”So, to speed things up, I wrote a letter to the municipal commissioner and the deputy commissioner urging them to act and not just inspect the sites where encroachments are noted,” the mayor said.

On Friday, Aggarwal said action against the encroachment would continue and no “illegal activity” would be allowed on behalf of “Rohingyas and Bangladeshis”.

Interacting with reporters here, he also denounced the opposition AAP in the BJP-led East Delhi Municipal Corporation and accused their members of first complaining about encroachment and then to “scream” when the body took action.

The encroachment issue has become a flashpoint between the BJP and the AAP in recent times, especially since the BJP-led northern society bulldozed the “illegal encroachment” in the Jahangirpuri area in prey to violence, sparking widespread outrage.

Volunteers are the backbone of sporting events | local sports

By Sports events

It was National Volunteer Week in Canada recently and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the incredible contributions of volunteers.

If there are two words that go hand in hand, it is volunteering and sport. It is only fitting that the official announcement that Thunder Bay will host the 2024 Ontario Winter Games took place during this special week, as for this event to take place it will depend on the expertise and the dedication of more than 700 volunteers.

Scheduled to take place from February 16 to 24, 2024, around 3,500 participants will take part in no less than 27 sports taking place in 18 different venues.

The bid’s slogan was Return to the North. The last time the event was held in this area was in December 1974, meaning they will return after 50 years away.

Knowing the incredible dedication and resilience of volunteers in our local sporting community, I imagine some of the people who worked on the 1974 event will be lining up to help with the 2024 competition.

Thunder Bay has hosted a number of large-scale sporting events over the years that have required a number of volunteers, with the 2020 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games and the 2022 Scotties Tournament of Hearts not being just two of our most recent efforts.

Volunteering to help out with a sporting event in your community isn’t always an easy task, especially if you’ve taken on the leadership of a committee.

In fact, as anyone involved in the world of event management will tell you, it’s one of the most stressful jobs around. That’s why it’s all the more amazing to me that so many people are willing to give their time and talents to help out as sports volunteers, their only goal being the desire to put on a great event and proudly present their hometown.

While large-scale events require a certain number of volunteers for a specific period of time, the contributions of our sports volunteers occur every day.

Simply put, organized sport cannot exist without the thousands of volunteers and corresponding hours they donate every year.

Thunder Bay athletes continually make headlines for their success in the world of sport and they are there because of the selfless efforts of volunteers.

Every time a champion hoists a trophy or bites into a gold medal, a volunteer has played a part in helping them on their way to victory.

Behind every athlete is an army of volunteers who serve in a variety of roles such as coaching and officiating, serving on boards of directors, and fundraising to help pay for the ever-increasing expenses of running a sports team. or a league.

Of course, we also cannot forget the number of parents and other family members and friends who make those early morning drives for training or long drives to tournaments, often during cold winter days.

In my capacity as Executive Director of the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame for the past 36 years and through my involvement in a number of sporting events from the local to the national level, I have had the privilege of meeting and working with hundreds, if not thousands, of volunteers.

My work has also allowed me to help recognize some people for their role as volunteer sport builders who have selflessly dedicated their lives to providing sporting opportunities to their communities.

We have inducted nearly 100 people into the builder category, some for their volunteer contributions and others for reaching the pinnacle of their sport as a professional coach or administrator.

In the category of volunteer builders, there are two of our inductees from the early days of the sport in Port Arthur who were sport builders in the truest sense of the word.

Acting as a primary fundraiser, organizer and manager, Hilda Donati helped establish Thunder Bay’s first Peewee Hockey League which, according to some reports, was also the first of its kind in Canada.

In its first year of operation, Hilda’s League, as it was known, consisted of eight teams, with each of the players personally selected, assigned and equipped by Donati.

Tom Crompton Sr. encouraged her along the way, who, in addition to his contributions to the sport of football-football as an official and organizer in the early 1900s, organized his own midget hockey team which played on what became known as Crompton’s Rink.

Every time we hold an induction ceremony where we honor a sport-building volunteer, they are often truly touched by the fact that they are being recognized for their contribution.

I encourage anyone involved in a sports group in our region who knows someone who has dedicated themselves to developing their sport above all others, to submit their name and a summary of their contributions to the selection committee. of the NWOSHOF for review for possible induction.

Speaking of volunteers and people who give of themselves to support the sport, I have to give a big thank you to Hall of Fame inductee Vern Stenlund and his sister Carol Kajorinne.

They recently held an online art auction, featuring over 50 works of art they’ve created and donated for sale, all in support of the North West Sports Hall of Fame. of Ontario.

The event ended with a reception at the Sports Hall of Fame on April 23 to see the final submissions arrive. In the end, nearly $11,000 was raised to help in our efforts to preserve and honor our regional sporting heritage.

As National Volunteer Week draws to a close, I would like to personally thank all those volunteers who continue to give one of their most precious assets, their time, to help the world of sport.

Know that your efforts are greatly appreciated. It is thanks to you that Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario have such a vibrant sport community and a rich and proud sporting heritage.

Until next time, keep this pride of sports history alive and stay safe.

Diane Imrie is the Executive Director of the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame.
