Plans are underway for India to host world-class sporting events: Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur

By Sports events

He appeals to the business community to come forward and adopt a game, an athlete, an academy of their choice and support our athletes.

He appeals to the business community to come forward and adopt a game, an athlete, an academy of their choice and support our athletes.

India achieved unprecedented success at the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, winning a record number of medals. In an exclusive for Sportstar, New Delhi, Anurag Thakur, the Union Minister for Youth and Sports, talks about his ministry’s plans to use technology and organize more international events in India to help the country’s athletes in their quest for glory. on the world stage. Extracts:

Top athletes like Neeraj Chopra have suggested the need for regular high profile international fixtures in the country to generate interest. Can we expect India to host the Diamond League and such quality events soon?

The Ministry of Youth and Sports supports the National Sports Federations (FSN) in the conduct of international competitions in the country. We encourage ISCs and NSFs to develop professional capabilities to lead major sports properties here in India. The Indian Open Badminton tournament and the India Open Boxing tournament are good examples. We are also hosting the International Chess Olympiad for the first time and we held the Olympic Torch Relay for the first time in the event’s history, which is a milestone. In October, we will also host the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup after the huge success of the men’s edition in 2017. India has enough world-class facilities to host world-class events, and in the next few years we plan to become a destination for hosting such events.

Do you think that technological advancements in India will also lead to a sports revolution?

For us, the priority is the comfort of life of the athletes and to ensure that they can concentrate on their training and not worry about other problems. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been a champion of digital India and how to integrate it into people’s lives. We have taken the initiative to develop an online portal where any athlete – present or former – can directly request their cash awards, pension or scholarships. Previously, this process took months and sometimes even years, but now this amount will be disbursed through DBT without any verification from SAI or sports federations.

Many NSFs are plagued by factionalism, and a few NSFs have two parallel bodies, which affects athletes. What is the government’s view on this and how can this problem be solved?

The ministry’s job is to be a facilitator and to ensure that athletes do not suffer. A few months ago, we decided to grant provisional recognition to all National Sports Federations until December 31, 2022, provided that they obtain their constitution in accordance with the National Sports Development Code 2011. This has been done so that our athletes leaving for major international tournaments, including the CWG 2022, do not suffer.

Are you satisfied with how the Target Olympic Podium System (TOPS) works and its impact?

TOPS has been a very successful program. He has been able to fill the gaps that exist in the training and competition schedules of elite and development athletes. A significant part of the athletes’ training and competition program is supported by the Ministry’s assistance to National Sports Federations through the Annual Training and Competition Calendar (ACTC) programme. Deviations, if any, are covered by TOPS. TOPS came in when Mirabai Chanu had to travel to St. Louis in the United States at short notice before the Olympics. It was handled in a day so she could leave before the United States stopped flights from India. Another example is that of Neeraj Chopra who travels to Chula Vista so that he can resume training without any distractions and prepare for the World Championships in Athletics. Our department’s National Sports Development Fund (NSDF) program supports TOPS for our grassroots and development athletes. With top corporations and PSUs showing their interest in supporting sports in India, the future is very bright for Indian sports. Just recently we launched a new website and portal for the NSDF where any person, organization or company can contribute any amount to any sport, any athlete or any event of his choice. I call on our nation’s business community to come forward and adopt a game, adopt an athlete, adopt an academy of their choice, and support our athletes.

What would you say to a young person wanting to pursue a career in sport?

We are changing the sports ecosystem to make it conducive to our sportspeople, whether they are elite athletes or homegrown talent. We have a clear system in place. We focus on talent identification and local development through our 523 Khelo India Centers at district level and through SAI Training Centers and NCOEs. We are focused on their next stage of development through the 247 Khelo India Academies and the 29 Khelo India State Centers of Excellence. We focus on their world-class training and support through our national Centers of Excellence. We also organize competitions in all sports disciplines so that players have maximum visibility on match day. For example, we organize women’s leagues dedicated to Khelo India in nine disciplines: hockey, archery, weightlifting, cycling, boxing, swimming, wrestling, volleyball and judo. Through these leagues, more than 23,000 female athletes will participate in these competitions. So our goal is to make India a sporting powerhouse in the world and our youngsters will be the ones who excel.

When we talk about sports promotion, should we talk about medal promotion or sports promotion at the grassroots level? How to get more Indian children to play? Does the government plan to make sport an integral part of all school curricula?

Culturally, we must engage in physical activity on a very intimate level if we are to gain a presence on the global sports scene. In all sections of society, there is a need for increased awareness and understanding of sport. As a nation, we must work to improve our physical literacy levels, appreciating and owning physical activities in daily life. The FIT India movement, which aims to be a grassroots movement, has proven to be crucial in raising awareness of the importance of staying fit and active. The National Education Policy 2020 highlighted the importance of sport and physical activity as an essential part of our education systems. Structural changes are underway to ensure that sport-integrated learning will be undertaken in classrooms to help children develop physical fitness and improved physical literacy. Its implementation by the state governments could prove to be a turning point not only for our education system but also for the sports systems in India.

Channeling Mami Wata – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Past, present and future: the photographic collaboration of Judith and Julia Aidoo-Saltus Vocabulary #2: The Veneration of Mami Wata, part of the 2022 Bermuda Biennale (Photograph provided)

Judith Aidoo-Saltus’ photography at the 2022 Bermuda Biennale is a talking point for anyone interested in the African diaspora.

It’s also part of the love affair she shares with his wife, Julia Aidoo-Saltus, who is pictured in Vocabulary #2: The veneration of Mami Wata.

The photograph was taken shortly after one of the lockdowns caused by the pandemic in 2020.

Julia lay on her back in the waters off Whale Bay, kicking to stay afloat, as Judith urged her to ‘be still’ so she could capture the perfect image with her iPhone .

Hundreds of photos were taken. Julia suggested he put one in the National Gallery of Bermuda Bermuda Biennial 2022, A New Vocabulary: Past. Present. Coming.

“We take photos pretty much every day so I thought I’d submit something. I loved the theme too – A New Vocabulary: Past. Present. Coming.

“These are themes that I have thought about a lot,” said Judith, who was born in America but moved to Ghana with her parents when she was 12.

Past, present and future: Judith and Julia Aidoo-Saltus in front of Vocable #2: The Veneration of Mami Wata (Photograph provided)

“We have a concept in Ghana, sankofa, this principle of going back to the past to find what is good in order to move forward. And so this notion, of past, present, future, resonated with me because of this principle.

The Harvard-educated lawyer and investment banker has “always loved the arts and culture.”

At Rutgers University, where she studied business and French, she took the first of many photography classes.

She then turned to cinema before joining the production team of Bridge and Tunnela Tony Award-winning piece.

“I [also] own radio stations, so this issue of using media and art to uplift people is something close to my heart,” she said.

Connections: Judith Aidoo-Saltus received a postcard featuring Sharon Wilson’s art many years ago and was surprised to come across the original during a visit to the island in 2016 (Photograph provided)

Eventually, she decided to take a break from producing films and plays and focus on photography, “my first love, which is just walking, wandering, looking and seeing; train the eye to see even as a meditation”.

The Veneration of Mami Wata honors a respected water spirit in the African Diaspora.

“[She is a] mermaid spirit, this mermaid who attracts people with her beauty and her wisdom,” said Judith. “And so when I saw this image, that’s the first thing I thought of – it’s Mami Wata coming to life.”

She is grateful for the advice of Peter Lapsley, the executive director of the National Gallery of Bermuda, that she enlarged the photograph; Loris Topan of ColourLab Bermuda Ltd did “just a brilliant job” after overseas attempts degraded the color of the ocean.

His wife was just as thrilled as she was with the outcome, Judith said.

“We see it as a joint project. I took the picture but she was absolutely with me creating that moment… that look on her face, there’s a light that hits her face in a way, it’s almost angelic.

“There is a look in his eyes that is very specific. I took thousands of photos of her and none of them appeared like this. Sometimes you are lucky.

Feeling the Spirit: Judith Aidoo-Saltus pictured in Ghana, where she visited shrines dedicated to Mami Wata (photo provided)

Judith’s late Ghanaian father was studying classical music at Oberlin College and Conservatory when he met her mother, a student at Howard University. His father then moved to Howard where he trained as a surgeon in the late 1950s.

“My mother is from Charleston, South Carolina. In Charleston, there is a place called Charles Towne Landing.

“There’s a story about how some enslaved people went back into the water rather than being enslaved and this idea that they flew away like birds.

“It’s one of those stories, those living myths. They still talk about it, how water has spirit and if you enter certain bodies of water you will feel the energy of that water.

“Sometimes it’s peaceful, sometimes it’s troubled, but you’ll feel the spirit in the water. It keeps coming back.

Like her parents’ water spirit connection, she has benefited from many “chance events”, she added.

On pilgrimage: On a trip to Ghana, Judith Aidoo-Saltus, left, visited the Mami Wata shrines. She is pictured with one of the priestesses who worship Mami Wata and other spirits (Photograph provided)

At Harvard Law School, a friend who was finishing his JD-MBA asked him to present his resume to the Goldman Sachs representatives who were there to conduct interviews.

“That was before the emails and all that and I said ‘sure’ – I didn’t even know what an investment bank was. But when I handed over the CV, I started talking to the recruiter and we kind of fell into this wonderful conversation.

Before she knew it, she had agreed to apply for a job herself.

“One thing leads to another; it was by no means planned. It was really a fluke, just helping out a friend, and I happened to have this conversation that then changed the course of my life.

While looking for a romantic connection online, she spotted a person with the handle “Juju”.

“Good juju… is the West African expression we use to indicate ‘magic’ or, more specifically, the presence of ancestral spirits to guide us.

“If it weren’t for Julia’s use of the word Juju – a nickname from her college years in England surrounded by so many West Africans – I wouldn’t have noticed her profile at all.

“She only had one photo and about five to seven lines of prose. On the other hand, of course, I have maximized the photos and the essay section.

The couple “started an old-fashioned correspondence,” getting to know each other only through emails for 30 days.

Judith, then living in New York, offered to have lunch in Bermuda; Julia insisted that she come for a few days so she could show her the island.

“Because I love art, I asked her to show me some of the artists on the island and the last artist we went to visit was Sharon Wilson.

“The last painting from the last room I saw in his gallery was the original of a card someone gave me 30 years earlier,” she said. “I believe in serendipity. I had to have this painting. I wouldn’t even negotiate the price, because for me it was so crazy – a random visit to Bermuda from all places.”

She left with the coin, promising to transfer the funds.

Back in New York, as she was about to pay, she discovered that Julia had bought it for her.

“She said, ‘I saw the look on your face, and I wanted to be the one to give it to you.’ Just the fact that she thought about doing it was very powerful to me. What a wonderful, generous thing. .

Despite this, there was a lot of talking before she “reluctantly” accepted the gift.

“I don’t accept expensive gifts from people because I find that sometimes it complicates my life a bit,” Judith said.

“But she said, ‘Can you imagine a scenario where I giving you this painting would be OK?’ And since I consider myself a creative, it was time for the loop. She got me. It was like, checkmate.

“So literally I arrived on a Monday, left on a Wednesday and came back on a Saturday, three days later, and I never left, basically. We’ve been together ever since.”

The couple’s 2017 wedding was the first same-sex wedding on the island.

“What I like about Bermuda is that it’s beautiful, it’s clean, the people are nice, at least half the population looks like me. And so for me it’s in some ways a perfect place,” Judith said.

“I can run around the world and come back to Bermuda because I feel safe, calm and beautiful. It’s a wonderful place to restore, that’s how I feel.

The response she received from Vocabulary #2: The veneration of Mami Wata has been fantastic. His hope is that it gives confidence to other artists to submit their work.

“Many of us take pictures, make art or write poems and we never submit. I want to encourage everyone who reads this article, everyone who has ever done anything, even artistically, to submit it.

“Just put it over there. I think there is power in publishing it and sharing it with the world.

The 2022 Bermuda Biennale takes place at the Bermuda National Gallery until December 30. For more information: www.bng.bm

Train strike could ‘dramatically impact’ fans attending sporting events in late July

By Sports events

Fans attending the Commonwealth Games, the Community Shield between Manchester City and Liverpool and the opening weekend of the English Football League are expected to be hit with a 24-hour train strike.

Train drivers from eight rail companies – Arriva Rail London, Chiltern Railways, Greater Anglia, Great Western, Hull Trains, LNER, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains – will step down on July 30 over pay disputes.

The Commonwealth Games kick off in Birmingham on July 28, while reigning Premier League champions City take on last season’s FA Cup winners Liverpool at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on July 30.

Wembley will stage the Euro 2022 final the next day but it is feared the strike could also disrupt ongoing services on July 31.

“It is extremely disappointing that the unions have decided to strike during a fantastic sporting summer which has been planned for years,” tweeted Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston.

“This could have a huge impact on the spectator experience for those planning to travel by train.

“The strike comes at a critical time for the Women’s Euro and the start of the Commonwealth Games.

The opening ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games will take place at Alexander Stadium on July 28 (David Davies/PA)

“We are working with @FA organisers, @birminghamcg22, local councils and transport providers to ensure spectators can get to and from venues safely and efficiently.”

A spokesperson for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee said: ‘We are aware of the impending rail strikes on July 27 and 30 and are working with Transport for West Midlands to understand any impact this will have on spectators .

“The West Midlands region is one of the best connected areas in the country and a comprehensive spectator transport plan is in place which sets out the different ways people can get to and from the Games.

“We encourage everyone to visit the Birmingham 2022 website, where they can find the Games Travel Planner: it outlines all available transport options, including domestic coach services, designated shuttles and venues. parking relay.”

The bulk of the first round of matches in the new EFL season also take place on July 30.

By Sports events

(Yicai Global) July 8 – Following the near total wipeout of the sporting calendar in the first half of this year, Shanghai aims to host around 70 international and domestic sporting events over the remainder of 2022.

Most of the city’s sporting events have been postponed or canceled in the first six months due to the Covid-19 outbreaks, Xu Bin, head of the city’s sports bureau, said today in an interview with a Shanghai broadcaster.

Most of the events planned for the second half of the year will be online, while some international competitions will mainly involve domestic participants or foreign players who have stayed in China and meet all the requirements of the country’s Covid-19 policies. .

For example, the Shanghai Cup Chess Masters Open will be held at the end of September, the Shanghai Rowing Open in October and the Shanghai International Marathon at the end of November.

The city has made great efforts to resume sports events offline, Xu said, adding that two international sports organizations have announced that they will upgrade or hold high-level events in their respective fields in the eastern metropolis. east of China.

Tokyo 2020 Olympics paved the way for low-carbon sporting events, study finds

By Sports events

A study on the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games has given clues as to how international sports competitions can reduce their environmental impact.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games demonstrated that major international sporting events can significantly reduce their carbon footprint, if organizers are willing to make some changes, according to a new study from Japan’s Chukyo University.

A team of researchers came to this conclusion after examining the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the carbon emissions of last year’s Olympic Games – pushed back from their original 2020 date due to international lockdown measures. .

The results showed a dramatic decrease in the environmental impact of the competition, compared to that of previous years, and shed light on possible actions that major international events can take in the future to contribute to decarbonization efforts.

Due to the pandemic, the number of incoming event-related personnel who attended the Tokyo 2020 Olympics was significantly reduced from 141,000 to 41,000 participants.

The researchers did not examine the number of spectators, who were not allowed to fly into the country to watch the Games. Instead, they looked at the number of people who attended the competition as part of the International Olympic Committee, as well as officials, including referees and judges, media and marketing partners.

According to studythis staff reduction saved 129,686.0 tCO2 in travel-related broadcasts.

“Our results indicate that taking action to reduce the number of event-related staff attending the Olympics is an important strategy that aims to mitigate the carbon footprint of sporting mega-events,” said Prof. James Higham, one of the authors of the article.

To determine the reduction in emissions from the recent Olympics, the researchers first identified the number of people visiting Japan on temporary visitor visas in July last year and subtracted the number of Olympic athletes, followed by visitors to Japan in June to account for non-Olympic Games visa holders.

Then the team estimated round-trip flight distance (miles) and CO2 emissions (kg) per passenger between major and hub airports in each country and region and Narita International Airport using a carbon calculator of flight, and calculated the results in multiplying the number of incoming (international) Olympics-related personnel (30,212) by the air transport carbon emissions per passenger for each country and region.

“It shows that there is huge potential to reduce the carbon footprint of the Olympics in terms of transport and people traveling overseas to attend,” said Higham.

Although the document suggests that all future events should take place in empty stadiums, the researchers pointed out that reducing unnecessary staff and taking measures to combat carbon emissions caused by major sports competitions can have an impact. important on the environment.

Some of the report’s suggestions for decarbonizing international sporting events include finding local or regional officials, providing opportunities for virtual reality livestreams and online press conferences, and ensuring that all unavoidable emissions related to events are encrypted. Higham also pointed out that event sponsors may be challenged to report their event-related emissions to leverage their commitment to a low-carbon event.

“We have to challenge ourselves to decarbonize these types of sporting events,” Higham said. “Small first steps will inevitably lead to bigger changes over time.”

In addition to a reduction in Olympic Games-related staff, the organization of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 has also demonstrated a commitment to sustainability by reuse or recycle 99% of non-consumable items purchased for the Games, use hydrogen to power the Olympic torch and manufacture the 5,000 medals awarded to athletes from precious metals extracted from discarded electronic devices.

The Games has also involved businesses in its decarbonization plans. By establishing a cap and trade program as well as the Saitama Target Emissions Trading System, up to 217 companies provided certified excess reduction credits, amounting to 4.38 million t-CO2 available to offset the Games. This amount exceeded the calculated total carbon footprint of the competition, 1.96 million t-CO2, by 2.42 million t-CO2.

Moreover, in order to ensure that future Olympic Games continue on the path of sustainability, the International Olympic Committee has pledged to plant an “Olympic Forest” over the next four or five years. The forest will be formed of more than 350,000 trees spanning an area of ​​more than 2,000 hectares in nearly a hundred villages in Mali and Senegal in what is better known as the Sahel region, said the Committee.

Some of these measures could possibly be applied in the future to other sporting events, such as the FIFA World Cup. According to a 2020 study, FIFA staff have the largest individual carbon footprint during the organization of this competitiona number that could be reduced by decisions similar to those made by the organizers of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Teaching teachers – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: 09 Jul 2022 08:10

Veteran educator Gina Tucker wishes she had EduCoach when she first started (Photograph by Jessie Moniz Hardy)

A teacher’s first years in teaching are so overwhelming that half of all new teachers quit within the first five years.

Veteran educator Gina Tucker hopes her new business, EduCoach, will buck that trend by providing online mentoring support to teachers in Bermuda and around the world.

“Most teachers come thinking they will stay forever,” she said. “So what are we going to do to make sure they stay long term? I believe EduCoach is one such resource. EduCoach is a real gift for teachers.

Dr Tucker said her own early years as a teacher at West Pembroke Primary in the late 1980s were “crazy”.

“I was well prepared,” she said. “I trained in a progressive program. But as a first-grade teacher, you’re trying to manage 100 things, 95 of which are unrelated to teaching. You try to manage the running of the school. You try to manage the discipline and you try to manage how to perform all your duties. »

The other teachers at West Pembroke kept her from becoming a statistic.

“It would have been a different trip if I hadn’t had these colleagues in the building,” she said.

Older colleagues sometimes laughed at his “progressive” ideas, such as having children work in the classroom collaboratively.

“But their support allowed me to try things out,” she said. “Otherwise I would have been too busy trying to figure out everything else.”

Later, working as a primary school principal for eight years, she often mentored the teachers who worked under her. But she said that in today’s world where managers are so busy, that’s not always feasible.

“EduCoach supports principals as well as teachers,” she said.

It’s about making professional coaching accessible, affordable and convenient so that any teacher who wants to improve can get the help they need anytime, anywhere.

Useful for new teachers, it also provides mentors for all experience levels.

A teacher can choose a mentor to help with third grade math, for example.

Dr. Tucker said the most popular topics right now are mindfulness, classroom management and formative assessment.

Interest in EduCoach is growing, even abroad.

“We left for the Association for Program Supervision and Development in Chicago in March,” she said. “The interest was huge. This is a revolution in the way we think about teacher support. Getting people to switch to this model takes time. We are seeing an increase in interest over the past two months.

She started working on EduCoach during lockdown in April 2020 when she was Director of Fintech Education at FinTech Bermuda.

“Every morning for about a week I woke up thinking, what can I do? I have to do something,” she said.

She knew she wanted to create something that involved technology and education that would be a job creator.

“I knew I wanted to support teachers,” she said. “I know teachers’ jobs are very difficult and I know that not everyone gets the support they need when they need it.”

EduCoach started taking coaches a year ago. They now have 50 and hope to eventually have 75 to 100 people working for them.

“You should have at least five years of teaching and coaching experience,” she said. “You should have a master’s degree in teaching. But some areas have different types of certification. It is important for EduCoach to be progressive in its reflection on experience and expertise. People come with a variety of expertise that requires different types of certification.

Teachers can purchase mentoring sessions and there are packages for schools that want to make EduCoach available to their teachers.

In addition, city football, basketball and volleyball leagues will be organized and the Chinese youth football league will be launched.

The work plan emphasizes that public stadiums should be open to the public and national fitness activities and sports competitions can be held.

Sports training centers and stadiums of sports schools should be accessible to the public on the premise that the daily training of professional sports teams and the prevention of epidemics are ensured.

In terms of public fitness, the work plan made it clear that all kinds of online sports activities by the public, including online sports meetings, should continue.

The authorities are also committed to promoting sport through 40 national pilot sports cities.

Food Network, Bermuda-style – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Stephenie Blyden, creator of the culinary television series Bestseller – Bermuda (Photograph provided)

Stephenie Blyden’s dream was to create a show in Bermuda that rivals the ones she has seen on Food Network.

Having worked in TV production with Tyray Lathan, she knew he was “an awesome host” who was also passionate about food.

“That’s when I had the idea, I thought we could work with his passion for food and my passion for creating a professional Food Network-like show to bring the vision to life,” a- she declared. “That’s when I told him about the idea of ​​producing, making it a professional [show], and he accepted. Then we did.

Bestseller: Bermudathe 20-minute series they came up with is “all about promoting local restaurants.”

The chefs are filmed preparing a signature dish, which Mr. Lathan tries and discusses on camera; regular customers are asked about their favorite dishes on the menu.

The pair have completed an episode and are now looking for additional sponsors and restaurants.

“There are no negative reviews; nothing like. It’s all positive,” Ms Blyden said.

Every aspect of the shoot is discussed in advance with the restaurant. The dish that will be presented is also agreed, so that the chefs can prepare to cook in front of a camera.

“It’s to make sure the restaurant gets the promotion it wants and deserves. At the same time we go and promote [additional] dishes they have that they think the public would like.

“Towards the end you will see the host eating the food and part of the atmosphere of the restaurant itself.

“It’s a lot of action, music, repeat customers telling you what they like, things like that. Then we have a commercial break. It’s actually set up like a real TV show.

The show is a product of Bermedia VaultTV, a production company that Ms Blyden started about five years ago and is particularly known for one of its shows, Vault Quiz.

Stephenie Blyden invites restaurateurs to sign up for her cooking TV series Bestseller: Bermuda (Photograph provided)

“Learning to produce came from a love,” she said. “My mother couldn’t afford to send me to school, so I had to learn. I had to intern with people and ask them questions, I had to go online and watch [things] at the top. I just had to do what I had to do.

It took him “a few years” before he saw any real improvement. A one-year internship with Channel 82 in Bermuda helped me.

“That’s when I took off with my wings and was able to do things on my own shortly after. It was a big part of my career, it really helped me.

She then quit her job and started VaultTV, encouraged by people who saw her talent, heard her ideas and pushed her to do it.

“Of course it’s a fear factor when it comes to things like this,” Ms Blyden said. “But I decided I was just going to take the plunge and do it because I had to; because I really felt it in my mind to do so.

“So I just did what I had to do and I’ve been building it for a few years now. We’ve come pretty far.

“We work a lot with companies and we do our stories [segments]. I’ve always dreamed of creating professional TV shows and I have quite a few brews of them, but one in particular was a Food Network type show.

She is the “director, creator and producer” of BestsellerMr Lathan is “the brilliant host with a passion for food who also helps wherever needed when he can – behind the scenes and in front of the screen”.

“In Bermuda, we have so many creative people here, but no one really takes the time to do this stuff.

“And I just wanted to do it. We just want to promote Bermuda in a positive way. We want to give Bermuda local content that is professional.

Interested restaurants are invited to Register with VaultTV. This will grant access to the first episode, which includes Village Pantry, Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio, and FryDay’s.

“I want to thank these restaurants for believing in our vision and for being so patient as we prepare to complete the rest of the season,” Ms Blyden said.

Once released, Bestseller will be available on www.bermediavault.comYouTube and various social media platforms.

She is also in talks with Channel 82 and ZFB and the Bermuda Tourism Authority who “absolutely loved the pilot” and hope to promote it to viewers overseas.

“We wanted to make sure it looked professional as we wanted it to reach outside of Bermuda. We wanted people who saw it to think, ‘Who did this? Has Food Network really taken off? »

“But you know, it’s up to us in the end. We haven’t done the full season yet. We want to involve all restaurants.

“There are a few things in motion. We just have to put on the show. There are a lot of people ready to push it and want to be part of it.

According to the sponsor buy-in, restaurants will not have to pay for the promotion.

Each episode will give between three and four restaurants five minutes of screen time; Ms. Blyden expects around 11 episodes per season.

“We’re just going to keep going until I guess we get them all or get as many as we can.

“We have implemented it on the website where [restaurants] could go put in their information and then they could watch the pilot.

“So I just want to encourage them to really watch it and contact us if they’re interested. And we’ll go from there. It’s a good thing for Bermuda.

By Sports events

Sport is a popular activity in Malta. In 2022 alone, the people of Malta already have an exciting line-up of events, including the Malta Open Water Swimming Competition and the Mdina Grand Prix. These are just some of the fun ways locals can unwind after long weeks of hard work. And while waiting for these events, they will also have the chance to enter the international stage where a series of other sports competitions will be underway. Let’s see which dates you can tick off in advance to make sure you don’t miss what will inevitably be the talk of the town.

1. The FIFA World Cup

It’s no secret that the Maltese love football, with a preference for association football, the region’s most popular sport. And when they’re not flocking to the Ta’ Qali Stadium to support their favorite teams or watch the Maltese Premier League, they also enjoy watching the other teams pitch in. You can expect their eyes to be on the World Cup this year.

Malta were part of the qualifying Group H teams comprising Cyprus, Russia, Croatia, Slovakia and Slovenia. Croatia eventually claimed victory and qualified for the final, while Malta came fifth with five points. Although their national team may not have made it, you can expect fans to follow every minute of the coveted World Cup. Many fans have already placed bets on major sites like bet365hoping to capitalize on the events of the competition, which runs from November 21 to December 18. Some fans will even travel to Qatar for a front seat in the action-packed stadiums.

The Maltese will not be alone with their eyes fixed on the screen. After all, this event attracts tens of billions of fans who will also support their favorite teams.

2.Hockey

Hockey is another popular sport in Malta, a country that has four teams in its national league. Most matches are held at the National Hockey Stadium in Paola, Kordin. And while these games get a lot of attention, this year the focus will be on the FIH Women’s World Cup of Hockey. This competition falls under the International Hockey Federation and has existed since 1924. It takes place every four years and has both men’s and women’s versions. This year, the women’s tournament will take place from July 1-17, with 16 teams from five confederations playing in two host cities.

As with all other hockey games, fans expect to see lots of camaraderie coupled with a great display of team skill. Moreover, with the high level of participation in each match, the fans will be spoiled.

3.Rugby

There are so many reasons why people love rugby games. Players love it for its freshness. And the fans? Well they can’t get enough of:

  • The Incredible Spirit: Anyone who has attended a rugby match can attest to the electric atmosphere that surrounds rugby matches. You can dance, cheer on your team and make friends in the stadium. A community feel comes from the support of a team, and the whole experience is pretty wholesome.
  • The Bond: Although rugby can seem violent on the outside, it’s a great way to bond with loved ones. That’s why teammates often build strong relationships that carry them through life. And fans are taking those lessons and using rugby to interact with each other on a more personal level.

Malta is a region where fans gather to watch the players engage in rugby union, with over 2,500 registered players. Rugby league is also common in the country, a sport that has grown so much that it currently ranks 18th in the world. From September 9-11 this year, the Rugby 7s World Cup will take place in Cape Town, South Africa. It will feature 24 men’s teams and 16 women’s teams and will surely attract a lot of attention. Although Malta won’t be taking part in the games, watching the qualifying teams take part will be fun.

4. Swimming

In summer, most people in Malta head to the beach for a refreshing swim. And in winter, they surf a lot. Swimming is almost like second nature to most residents. So, it makes sense that even if they don’t actively participate in water sports, they watch others do it. And what better way to enjoy it than by watching a swimming competition? Fortunately, they will enjoy it from December 13 to 18 this year. The FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) will be held in Melbourne, Australia. They were supposed to take place in Kazan, Russia, but that has since changed due to current political events. Fans will be able to see swimmers compete in the following categories:

  • freestyle
  • Backstroke
  • breaststroke
  • Butterfly
  • Individual mix
  • freestyle relay, and
  • Mixed relays.

Some of the events will be mixed, adding to the appeal of the competition. It will be worth it.

5. Basketball

If you want shooting hoops or generally enjoy watching basketball, you will have the chance to watch other people do it. Where? – The FIBA ​​Women’s Basketball World Cup will take place from September 22 to October 1 in Sydney, Australia. This event will be interesting with 12 teams competing on two sites! And although Malta won’t take part in any of the games, they have made progress in their basketball trajectory – having hired a female head coach for their men’s Division 1 basketball team!

2022 is turning out to be a great year for sports fans all over the world. And the people of Malta will surely be able to keep up to date with all the events.

The law empowers the Secretary of State to designate specific events from time to time as “scheduled events.” DCMS indicated that such events shouldhave a special nationality resonance” and contain an element that “is used to unite the nation, a common point on the national calendar, which is not only of interest to those who follow the sport in question“.

The events listed are divided into 2 groups:

  • Group A events – essentially, where it is intended (as below) that live coverage will be offered on an eligible FTA channel or service; and
  • Group B events – essentially, for which live coverage may be shown on pay TV, but it is expected (as below) that highlight or delayed coverage will be offered on an eligible FTA channel or service.

Recent Changes to Listed Events and Updated List

As mentioned above, the government’s confirmation that the FIFA Women’s World Cup and UEFA European Women’s Championships should be protected by the UK regime from events listed as “crown jewel” events is a welcome addition.

National interest in women’s football has certainly increased in recent years. A record 28.1 million viewers watched BBC coverage of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, more than double the previous tournament. The Lionesses’ semi-final match against the United States was the most watched, with a peak audience of 11.7 million and a peak share of 50.8%.

As such, it would seem few could argue that these international women’s football tournaments failed to attract”particular national resonance”. Also significantly, their addition, along with that of the Paralympic Games[1]served to increase the diversity and inclusiveness of the list of “Crown Jewels” events.

The current list of Group A and Group B protected events (including recent additions) is shown below.

GROUP A PROTECTED EVENTS
The Olympic Games
The Paralympic Games (added in January 2020)
FIFA World Cup Final Tournament
FIFA Women’s World Cup Finals Tournament (added April 2022)
European Football Championship Finals Tournament
European Women’s Football Championship Finals Tournament (added April 2022)
The FA Cup final
The Scottish FA Cup Final (in Scotland)
The Grand National
The derby
The Wimbledon tennis final
The Rugby World Cup Final
The Rugby League Challenge Cup final
GROUP B PROTECTED EVENTS
Cricket Test Matches Played in England
Non-finals play in the Wimbledon tournament
All other matches in the Rugby World Cup Final tournament
Six Nations Rugby Tournament matches involving home countries
The Commonwealth Games
The athletics world championship
The Cricket World Cup – the final, semi-finals and matches involving local nations’ teams
The Ryder Cup
The Open Golf Championship

Which FTA services are eligible?

Part IV of the Act distinguishes between two categories of television services, depending on whether or not they meet the “eligibility requirements“:

  • Services that meet the eligibility requirements to be FTA and received by at least 95% of the UK population (the “First category); and
  • All other services that do not meet the eligibility requirements (including pay-TV broadcasters / paid subscription services) (the Second category).

The current list first-class free-to-air television services includes:

  • BBC one, two, three and four
  • CBBC and CBeebies
  • BBC News and BBC Parliament
  • Channel 3 Network (ITV, STV, UTV)
  • ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4
  • Channel 4, Movie 4 and Plus 4
  • Channel 5

The law currently prohibits Category 1 or Category 2 television services from broadcasting a listed event live unless a television service in the other category, which broadcasts coverage in substantially the same area, has also acquired the relevant cover rights (taking into account whether the relevant event is a Group A or Group B event), unless Ofcom gives its consent.

Ofcom’s conditions for giving consent depend on how the relevant listed event is classified:

  • For Group A events, Ofcom will give consent for exclusive live coverage if it is “satisfied that broadcasters have had a real opportunity to acquire the rights on fair and reasonable terms“; and
  • For Group B events, Ofcom will give consent for exclusive live coverage if “adequate arrangements have been made for secondary coverage (i.e. highlights or delayed coverage)” by a broadcaster in the other category.

As these exclusive coverage authorization criteria show, the Listed Events regime does not necessarily guarantee that all Listed Events will be shown on free-to-air channels. Rather, it seeks to ensure a fair process in the acquisition of the relevant rights. Ofcom posts approved applications for exclusive coverage on its website.

What additional changes are on the horizon to further protect listed events in the digital age?

In its recently published white paper, the UK government recognizes that further reforms are needed to further modernize the listed events framework, particularly in light of rapidly changing media delivery technology and viewer consumption habits. .

The question of the extent of digital rights protection afforded to ‘crown jewel’ events became a matter of public debate during the recent Tokyo Olympics in light of the latest broadcast rights agreement between the IOC and Discovery. This agreement, which is to last until the Paris 2024 Games, has allowed the BBC to make two separate live streams of the Tokyo 2020 Games available at any one time, but represents a marked reduction in the volume of streaming content accessible via the red button. or iPlayer for previous Olympics. For example, at Rio 2016 the BBC provided 4,500 hours of live action compared to just 350 hours at Tokyo 2020.

The recent white paper published by the UK government highlights some shortcomings in the protection offered by the current regime of listed events in relation to digital rights. He goes on to cite the hypothetical example of a ‘crown jewel’ Group A event, such as the Olympic 100m final, broadcast live on a premier television service, such as the BBC, in the middle of the night for the UK. viewers, and all on-demand/catch-up digital rights then being sold to a pay-TV broadcaster without breaching the listed events regime.

comments

Given the comments made in the Broadcasting White Paper, it would appear that the UK Government is satisfied (for the time being at least) that the current list of events strikes the right balance between maintaining free access to sporting events for the public and give rights holders the freedom to structure their media rights arrangements as they see fit.

However, in light of the recognition of the transformational changes in digital media consumption trends and distribution technologies, it seems that new developments may well be underway as to how the regime protects the exploitation of digital rights. events listed by FTA-eligible services.

Further, given some specific references in the white paper, as well as its overriding review theme underlying “creating a new golden age of British television and helping the country’s public service broadcasters to thrivethe prospect of the regime of listed events changing to become a specific benefit for public service broadcasters seems a realistic possibility in the future.

Rightsholders and broadcasters, as well as the UK public, will all have an interest in seeing how these issues develop.

Hundreds attend cybersecurity webinars – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Around 400 local businesses attended the cybersecurity webinar series.

The series was designed to help them learn from experts and Cybersecurity Governance Council members how to keep their businesses, IT systems, and customer information secure.

The nine-part series, consisting of monthly lunchtime and learning webinars, was hosted by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation in partnership with the Department of Economic Development and the Cybersecurity Governance Council.

The government’s communications department said: “It has long been clear that businesses need to protect customer information and IT systems from online threats.

“However, since the Covid-19 pandemic, this truth has become stark. It is critical that businesses understand the potential cyber threats they face, how to mitigate them, and what the consequences are for those who commit such cyber crimes.

“In the monthly webinar series, CGB members educated attendees on all aspects of cybersecurity that could affect their small and medium-sized businesses. Participants learned essential information and skills on how to take the necessary steps to protect their systems. »

The topics in this series, while varied, were of equal importance to Bermuda-based business owners.

Ronnie Viera, chief operating officer at First Atlantic Commerce, spoke about ensuring businesses had the appropriate security measures in place.

Alex White, Bermuda’s first Privacy Commissioner and Dr. Marisa Stones, Head of the Government’s PIPA/Pati Unit, spoke about the business owner’s responsibility for privacy and privacy. customer information.

Brett Henshilwood, partner at Deloitte Bermuda, discussed supply chain attacks, and Sheridan Smith, director, management services/information technology at the Bermuda Monetary Authority, explained that cybersecurity was not a not just for online businesses.

Noel Pearman, SVP, cyber product line manager at AXA XL, showed business owners how to assess corporate privacy and security risks.

The laws of the land also had their place in the series: Steve Cosham, National Disaster Coordinator and Mr. Viera, showed the interdependence of Bermuda’s cybersecurity and critical infrastructure.

Additionally, Mark Tomlinson, Police Sergeant of Technology Services and Digital Forensics, along with Acting Chief Detective Inspector Paul Ridley, discussed Bermuda law as it relates to cybersecurity.

Mr. Viera asked business owners if they were confident that their online payment platform was secure. He then provided advice, tips and advice to help them with the investigation.

After the event, he said, “I speak on behalf of the members of the Cybersecurity Governance Council in saying that we are delighted to have participated in the webinar series over the past few months. The third objective of the national strategy concerns awareness raising and capacity building. .

“The collaboration with EDD and BEDC was therefore fully in line with what the board is striving to achieve in terms of generally heightened levels of cyber risk awareness.”

Erica Smith, Executive Director of BEDC, said, “We were thrilled to join this collaboration and deliver this series of nine webinars over nine months.

“The webinar series provided our stakeholders with valuable insight into the importance of cybersecurity, its associated benefits and potential threats. During and after the pandemic, many entrepreneurs have had to rely on the internet to maintain a connection with their customers.

“Therefore, asking industry experts to provide advice, tips and advice on what to do to protect company and customer information was timely and necessary.”

Ray Jones, Director of EDD, said: “EDD aims to advance the sustainable growth, development and diversification of Bermuda’s economy. As an increasing number of businesses make the transition to a greater focus on technology, cybersecurity becomes all the more vital to the accomplishment of our mission.”

He added: “We have been pleased with the strong turnout and success of this webinar series. We believe that developments like this are key to ensuring the overall attractiveness of the island as a jurisdiction. We are focus on Bermuda being a global leader in technology and proper cybersecurity practices are fundamental to ensuring that sustainable developments can be achieved in our economy.”

Summer heat, hail and sporting events will dominate the weekend – The Berlin Spectator

By Sports events

Berlin is set for a hot weekend, but thunderstorms could interrupt the sunny parts. The final, a national athletics competition, is underway, which is why the area around the Brandenburg Gate looks different at the moment. Meanwhile, improvements for public swimming pools in Berlin have been announced.

Berlin, June 25, 2022 (The Berlin Spectator) — In Berlin, the finals take place, the German national championship which brings together several athletic disciplines. This explains all the action in front of the Brandenburg Gate. On Friday, passers-by who wanted to take selfies there found themselves in a big hot-putting competition right in front of Berlin’s (and Germany’s) most famous landmark.

Small public beach

The weekend started with a lot of summer heat which slowed down the Berliners. Yesterday, 32 degrees centigrade (89.6 degrees Fahrenheit) was measured. Only very few hikers were seen in the German capital’s Tiergarten park, although the shade provided by the trees made a difference. A few hours later, around 5 p.m., rain clouds appeared over the Charlottenburg borough and other parts of Berlin.

Here, people frequented cafes and bars. Their goal was to cool themselves from within by pouring drinks of all kinds down their throats. Sixteen kilometers further, at Wannsee, one of Berlin’s most beautiful lakes, they took another approach. Before this weekend, Thursday, our reporter was one of the people who jumped into the water at a small public beach known as Badestelle Heckeshorn and really enjoyed it. On the other side of the lake, the Wannsee Beach Bath welcomes many guests every day.

Numb and tired

The same goes for other public swimming pools in Berlin. The public company that runs them, Berliner Bäder-Betriebe (BBB), has announced that it has improved things after two problems arose in recent days. On Monday, the police had to put an end to a big fight in a swimming pool in the Berlin district of Steglitz. That’s why more security guards were employed. And because BBB ticketing site did not resist the enormous demand, it was improved.

Clouds appeared over Charlottenburg on Friday afternoon. Photo: Emmanuel Marcus

Back in the city center, in front of the Russian embassy on Unter den Linden boulevard, there was only one demonstrator who demanded on Friday afternoon an end to the Russian war of aggression against its neighbor l ‘Ukraine. The flowers, notes and stuffed animals that people had left there earlier to commemorate the victims of the war were dusty and partially yellowed. One hundred and twenty days since Russia started attacking Ukraine, people may have grown numb and tired of protesting. Plus, it was just too hot for rallies of any kind.

The Berlin Spectator now has a newsletter. You can register here :

Storms and hail

Berliners and tourists from the capital should expect more very hot days. For today (Saturday), up to 30 degrees Centigrade (86 degrees Fahrenheit) was forecast. But the sunny parts of the day could be interrupted by thunderstorms that can even bring hail. It is supposed to look like Sunday, with a maximum temperature of 32 degrees C (89.6 degrees F). There could be even more thunderstorms on Monday. This is when the heat is supposed to rise to 36 degrees C (97 degrees F).

AAA offers hot weather safety tips – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN – With temperatures predicted to be in the 90s for parts of the state next week, AAA is urging motorists to keep their children, pets and vehicles safe during what is expected to be one of the worst times. warmer so far this summer.

“In just 10 minutes, a car can heat up 20 degrees and become deadly,” said Megan Cooper, spokesperson, AAA – The Auto Club Group.




“We urge parents and caregivers not to underestimate the risks excessive heat can pose and to understand that hot car deaths are preventable,” Cooper said.

According No heatstroke.org, an average of 38 children die from heat stroke inside hot vehicles each year across the country. Despite warnings from security organizations each year, children continue to die from this preventable tragedy.

AAA-The Auto Club Group provides the following safety tips to keep children safe:

  • Do not leave children alone, even for short periods of time – Never leave children unattended in a vehicle, even if the windows are open or the air conditioning is on.
  • Teach children that vehicles are not playgrounds – Do not let children play in an unsupervised vehicle. Teach your children that a vehicle is not a suitable hiding place in a game of hide and seek.
  • Keep your vehicle locked – lock your vehicle’s doors and trunk, even in driveways and garages, and keep keys out of reach of children.
  • Make it a habit to check your vehicle– Before locking your vehicle and driving away, make a habit of always checking the front and rear seats.
  • Create reminders for caregivers – If you usually drop your child off at a babysitter or daycare center, ask the person looking after you to call you if your child does not show up as expected.


  • Add reminders in your vehicle– Put your purse, wallet or mobile phone in the back seat. This way you are reminded to look in the back seat before leaving the vehicle. You can also keep a stuffed animal in your child’s car seat. When the child is with you, put it in the front seat to remind you that your child is in the back.
  • To call for help – If you see a child or pet alone in a locked car, call 911 immediately and follow the instructions of emergency personnel.

High temperatures in a vehicle can also put your pets at risk. Never leave an animal in a parked car, even if the windows are partially open. Even on pleasant days, your vehicle can quickly reach a temperature that puts your pet at risk.

Extreme heat can also pose risks to your vehicle. AAA recommends drivers check these five key areas to help their vehicle safely survive higher temperatures:

1. Battery

  • Secure the battery in place to minimize vibration.
  • Clean any corrosive buildup from the battery terminals and cable clamps.
  • Make sure the clamps are tight enough that they don’t move.
  • If a car’s battery is more than three years old, it’s a good idea to have it tested by a qualified technician to determine how long it will last.
    • The test can be done at any time AAA Approved Auto Repair facility, or AAA members can request a AAA mobile battery service technician comes to see them and tests their battery for free.
    • If the battery needs to be replaced, the technician can usually replace it on the spot. For more information on AAA Mobile Battery Service, visit AAA.com/Battery.


2. Engine coolant

  • Have the system flushed and coolant replaced periodically, as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
  • Consult the owner’s manual to determine the proper maintenance interval for a vehicle.
  • Inspect hoses and drive belts for cracks, weak spots, or other signs of poor condition.
  • Replace worn parts.

3. Tires

  • Check the tires when the car has not been driven recently.
  • Inflate tires to the pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer, not the number molded into the sidewall of the tire.
  • Inspect tire treads for proper depth and any signs of uneven wear that could indicate a suspension or alignment problem.

4. Engine fluids

  • Check all vehicle fluids, including engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid to make sure they are filled to the proper levels.
  • If fluids need to be topped up, be sure to use the type of fluid specified in the owner’s manual.


5. Air conditioning

  • Maintain a comfortable driving environment to reduce fatigue and increase driver alertness for increased vehicle safety.
  • Have the air conditioning system checked by a certified technician.

Be prepared for summer blackouts

Even with proper preventive maintenance, summer breakdowns can still occur. AAA recommends that every driver have a well-stocked emergency kit in their vehicle.

National school sports events, more community activities planned for Sports Hub after takeover: SportSG

By Sports events

SINGAPORE – Sport Singapore (SportSG), the government agency slated to take over management of the Singapore Sports Hub on December 9, has unveiled plans to bring the National School Games back to the National Stadium, transform the hub at Kallang into a “house for school sports” and organize regular open days for the community.

SportSG Managing Director Lim Teck Yin said on Friday June 10: “This is an exciting development that we can all look forward to.

“With this decision, we intend to generate stronger social, sporting and economic outcomes for Singaporeans to maximize the potential of the precinct and play a greater role in the development of our local ecosystem of the sports and lifestyle industry.”

The plans were part of a press conference to announce the end of the public-private partnership with consortium SportsHub Pte Ltd 13 years in advance.

Mr Lim said that by taking over the Singapore Sports Hub, SportSG will have greater autonomy to generate “stronger affinity and value for Singaporeans” and create synergy with other facilities and projects in the region. of Kallang.

Efforts to rejuvenate the area – dubbed Kallang Alive – were first announced in 2019 and include a green community space called Benaan Kapal Green, a youth center, a Kallang football center, an integrated development of the theater of Kallang and a Kallang Tennis Center.

Kallang Football Hub is expected to be completed this year, while Kallang Tennis Center will be completed in 2023. The Kallang Alive project was expected to be completed by 2025.

Noting that Singapore is also a candidate for the World Athletics Championships, Mr Lim said such synergy in the compound would help greatly if the opportunity to host arises.

For example, he could rope himself up in nearby facilities for large-scale events.

“The business opportunities of this synergy need to be exploited to be able to make the event affordable and commercially viable…we will have this complete flexibility to be able to operate across the full spectrum of logistics, food and beverage concessions and margins.” Activities.”

Such events will create a development of “community play”, he added.

Citing a large-scale tennis event such as an ATP Masters 1000 event, for example, Lim said it will create a “strong accumulation (…) of youth tennis, regional tennis competitions, club tennis as well as a high level of professional competition as the event comes to town”.

He also said the takeover will allow “enhanced programming as well as improved (hosted) events.”

There will also be “gateway programs leading to pipeline and elite programs for Team Singapore”, he added.

“When I talk about pathway programs for children and young people, I am really referring to the many academies and clubs that we run, who will be able to see many of their programs and development centers take root here as well.

“Furthermore, we have a very strong track record in programming and developing sports interest groups, whether it’s badminton, tennis, table tennis interest groups, which will feature also here.”

Our top tips for sporting events

If you try to train how to buy football ticketsYou have come to the right place.

We’ve put together a guide to help you understand some of the rules surrounding the sport to ensure you can legitimately attend your favorite club’s fixtures.

This is especially important because ticket laws are constantly changing and, on the contrary, becoming stricter.

This means that buying tickets on some of the best sports ticket sites isn’t as easy as it may have once been.

However, here we offer you some of the best ways to buy football tickets right now. So, without further ado, let’s dive into…

How to buy football tickets

There are several methods of obtaining tickets for football matches; however, the answer to the question really depends on the size of the club, the competition the tickets are for and where in the world the football match is taking place.

Through the club

As far as English football is concerned, the premier league recommends buying tickets directly from official club websites (or at a ticket office), as this is often the safest and easiest way to get a legitimate ticket.

However, each club will have an allocated number of tickets that they are allowed to sell. Therefore, getting a ticket through a club’s official website is not as easy as signing up and being able to purchase them.

For example, Chelsea sell tickets for Premier League home games 42 days before a match.

The club then allocates one ticket per club member the first week, two additional tickets per subscriber and member the second, then the tickets are only put on general sale (if any remain) until the third week, with a maximum of four tickets per person.

Things get even more complicated for European and domestic cup matches as it takes four weeks before the club puts tickets on general sale.

Therefore, we advise you to become a member of the football club you are supporting, or football body in the case of international fixtures, if you are looking to regularly secure match tickets before they sell out.

Sports ticket sites

Although it is possible to buy tickets from trusted sports ticket retailers like ticket master and lively seatsthe subject is a bit hazy when it comes to some football leagues and competitions.

Take England again, for example, where it is actually illegal to resell football tickets at any price.

However, third-party resellers are legal, so football clubs sometimes have authorized ticketing partners to help you get tickets for matches if they sell out.

For instance, StubHub has previously partnered with Tottenham and Everton, while viagogo has had deals with clubs like Fulham, Manchester City and Newcastle United in the past.

If you are still unsure, we recommend that you consult the Buy tickets safely in the Premier League page for official tips.

Ticket exchange

It has become increasingly common for clubs to allow you to return tickets through a ticket exchange, which are then resold to different fans.

Manchester City, for example, has a Ticket exchange system; however, this feature is only available to season pass holders.

Therefore, we recommend becoming a member of your favorite club if you are looking to show your support beyond wearing one of their best football kits.

We feel it’s also worth mentioning that Liverpool will soon be offering a Ticket transfer option for Premier League home games, which allows you to transfer your seat to one of your friends and family members. Keep an eye out for its introduction over the next few months.

What about football tickets outside England?

Most of the countries in the world have made it illegal to sell football tickets after buying them even if they are sold at face value as this is called vantage.

Therefore, your best bet when it comes to buying tickets outside of England is always to go directly to the website of the club in question.

Again though, ticketing sites like ticket master and lively seats also offer tickets to matches around the world, including MLS matches, with Ticketmaster actually offering a ticket exchange service between fans as well.

So, in summary, there are many ways to buy football tickets, many of which are the same regardless of which country you are based in. However, we always advise you to first try to get tickets directly through a football club as it seems to be the most legitimate way to get tickets for a football match.

Honoring Our Military Through Action – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Written by Marsha Blackburn
US Senator

washington d.c. – Nearly 80 years ago, the Allied assault on Nazi territory landed on the beaches of Normandy. The sacrifice of more than 2,500 American soldiers that day and countless others throughout World War II made the defeat of the Nazis a reality.

Today, our soldiers have not wavered in their commitment to guaranteeing the freedom of future generations. As Military Appreciation Month draws to a close, the people of Tennessee show their gratitude to our heroes throughout the year.




The voluntary state’s military heritage is strong. Tennessee first won his nickname after State Militia Volunteers served under General Andrew Jackson in the War of 1812.

Then, when President James K. Polk called for 2,600 volunteers to fight in the Mexican-American War, 30,000 Tennesseans stepped up. These brave volunteers made history and earned a reputation as some of the most combative troops in the country.

During World War I, Tennessee National Guardsmen of the 30th Division received more Medals of Honor than any other division in the theater. Our troops once again proved themselves in World War II, where the 117th Infantry Regiment became one of the most decorated of the war. Decades later, after terrorists attacked our country on 9/11, the people of Tennessee were among the first to brave the front lines in the global war on terror.

At home, Tennesseans remember the heroic service of our military every day. In Marchthe National Guard rushed to prevent a wildfire in Great Smoky Mountain National Park from spreading to nearby communities. Last year, our Wardens rescued those swept away by deadly flash floods in Humphreys County, provided cleanup assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, and performed air rescue missions for medical emergencies, including bear attacks and hiking injuries. The Tennessee National Guardsmen deliver on their promise to be “always ready, always there” and in the volunteer state’s military communities – in Clarksville, Tullahoma, Holston and Millington – service members proudly defend their nation through research, training and deployment.

Tennessee owes our troops a debt of gratitude. We must remain committed to supporting our military heroes and the families who make their work possible. During my visit to Fort Campbell last month, I spoke with soldiers about the resources they need to win on the front line. In Washington, I lead the way to improve readiness skills for active troops, food safety for military families, and access to health care for veterans.


Nearly 80 years after the start of the Allied victory on the beaches of Normandy, we are still unable to repay the sacrifice of our soldiers. But we can continue to express our gratitude through action. On this D-Day and every day in the State of the Volunteers, I join the people of Tennessee in supporting the heroes who risked their lives for freedom.

Purple Madness Takes Over Downtown Clarksville – Clarksville Online

Montgomery County, Tennessee – Last Friday night’s Downtown @ Sundown concert will be the talk of the town for months. It was to be one of the best musical performances of all time at the Downtown Commons.

“It was a good time here tonight. It’s packed with people. We had perfect weather and you can’t do better, Greene said after his set. “I think this event is amazing. It’s cool to have a regular event here that’s an outdoor event. It’s great for the community.”




Next, Prince tribute band Purple Madness took the stage. As the band warmed up, Bobby Miller as Prince took to the stage on a motorcycle. From the moment the music started, it was Price on stage. Miller had Prince’s dance moves, voice, mannerisms and looks. Suits were dead on Prince.

Miller took command of the scene and never let it go. He engaged the audience and gave a truly electrifying performance. The band Purple Madness was just awesome.

Some of the songs they performed were “Let’s Go Crazy”, “Kiss”, “Little Red Corvette”, a claimed version of “Darling Nikki”, “When Doves Cry” and of course “Purple Rain”.


I saw Price in concert. Watching Purple Madness, it was easy to forget that it wasn’t Prince. They are just so good.

The first 100 guests received a golden ticket good for a FREE Small Potato Oles® for one year. The ticket is redeemable for a FREE small order of potato oles every week for a year.




The store has a modern look and offers digital menu boards, an indoor self-ordering kiosk, free Wi-Fi and double drive-thru for fast service. Taco John’s promises bigger. bolder. best flavors.

As the first of a 10-store development agreement with franchisee Kevin Newell of Supreme Tacos LLC, this opening is one of three locations under development for Clarksville in 2022. It will be John’s fifth Taco in Tennessee and the 373rd system-wide.

“We are very excited to continue to grow our presence in Tennessee and to open our first location in Clarksville,” Newell said. “We chose this location because of its proximity to popular areas such as Austin Peay University, McGregor Park and the Cumberland Riverwalk.”

“We think this will be the perfect destination for the community to come together and enjoy our bold take on Mexican cuisine before heading out on an adventure,” Newell said.

Personally, I couldn’t wait for Taco John’s to open. Since my college days and later, Taco John’s has always been a favorite with my friends and I, especially Taco Tuesday. As much as I was looking forward to the restaurant opening, I was curious, the tacos, potato olés, etc. were they as good as I remembered.




My order was two soft shell beef tacos, a fried chicken taco, potato olés and Mexican donut bites. I don’t remember the fried chicken tacos or Mexican donuts on the menu. They must be items added in recent years. I ordered them to try something I hadn’t eaten before at Taco John’s.

To my surprise, the potato tacos and oles were as good if not better than I remembered. The fried chicken taco was great. I will have it again. The Mexican donut bites were delicious and a great sweet after meal treat. I can be picky about certain things and donuts are one of them. They were light and fluffy with just the right amount of frosting. Just heavenly.

One of the reasons I’ve always loved Taco John’s is the flavor. Unlike other fast food taco places and even many Mexican restaurants, Taco John’s seasons their food to perfection. Not just beef or chicken with a touch of something extra. Their slogan is bigger, bolder, better flavors. It’s not just a slogan, they stick to it and they deliver it.

Next time I’m going out or coming home and need a quick meal, you better believe it’s going to be Taco John’s.

Clarksville’s new Taco John’s is located at 955 North Riverside Drive, Unit 1. Restaurant hours are Sunday through Wednesday 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday 6:00 a.m. to midnight. Breakfast will be served daily from 6:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

CMCSS: Understanding Anxiety, Students Speak – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Montgomery County, Tennessee — May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an emotionally charged topic for many people, says the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS).

Conversations around mental health are essential to discuss, especially when it comes to our young people. Together, schools and families need to be aware of and meet the social and emotional needs of students.




Although communicating mental health issues can be uncomfortable for many, a group of Clarksville High School students came forward to address their own battles with anxiety and anxiety-related issues. The athletes courageously shared their experiences and coping strategies and explained how finding support from others helps regulate their emotions.

According to the National Institute of Health, 1 in 3 teenagers (13 to 19 years old) will suffer from an anxiety disorder. Adults should stay aware of the signs of anxiety in children and adolescents. Some children may openly share their anxiety, while others may not understand the emotions. When speaking with these Clarksville High School athletes, they all experienced different levels of anxiety, which presented themselves in different ways.

Signs of Anxiety in Children

  • Recurrent fears and worries about routine aspects of daily life
  • Behavioral changes, such as irritability
  • Avoiding activities, school, or social interactions
  • School dropout or school avoidance
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
  • Substance use or other risky behaviors
  • Chronic physical complaints, such as fatigue, headaches, or stomachaches

It is important to take an active role in your child’s education. Engage in regular conversations with your children about potential stressors. Try to empathize with them and see the world from their point of view.

Help your child set realistic expectations to reach their potential. Sometimes that can mean they have to work up the courage to ask for help. Remember to encourage them to relax, play and be with friends, which are crucial for their mental and physical health.

Talk to your child about their use of social media. Help them take breaks and help them think critically and rationally about the effect of social media on their lives. We need to recognize the significant impact of today’s experiences on the mental health of young people – and the importance of providing the education, care and support they need.


Worried about yourself or someone you love?

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s important to ask questions.

Try to understand what they are going through and how their daily life is impacted.

Memorial Day Celebration – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

washington d.c. — The leader of a Union veterans organization, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), has established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers on May 5, 1868, three years after the end of the Civil War.

On May 30, Decoration Day was declared to be observed by Major General John A. Logan.

The date is believed to have been chosen because the flowers are said to be in bloom across the country.

The first major celebration was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.

Remembrance Day
Remembrance Day

The ceremonies centered around the mourning-draped veranda of Arlington Mansion, once the home of General Robert E. Lee. Various Washington officials, including the General and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over the ceremonies.




After the speeches, children from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphan Home and members of the GAR marched through the cemetery, sowing flowers on Union and Confederate graves, saying prayers and singing hymns.

The local celebrations claim to be the first Local spring tributes to the Civil War dead had previously been held in various locations. One of the first occurred in Columbus, MS on April 25, 1866, when a group of women visited a cemetery to decorate the graves of fallen Confederate soldiers at Shiloh.

Nearby were the graves of Union soldiers, neglected because they were the enemy. Troubled at the sight of the bare graves, the women also placed some of their flowers on these graves.

Today, cities North and South claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day in 1866. Macon and Columbus, GA claim the title, along with Richmond, VA. The village of Boalsburg, Pennsylvania says it started two years ago. A stone in a cemetery in Carbondale, IL, bears the statement that the first Decoration Day ceremony was held there on April 29, 1866.

Carbondale was General Logan’s wartime home. About 25 places have been named in connection with the origin of Memorial Day, including many in the South where most of the war dead were buried.

Stated official place of birth

In 1966, Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared Waterloo, NY the “birthplace” of Memorial Day. There, a ceremony on May 5, 1866 honored local veterans who had fought in the Civil War.




Shops closed and residents waved flags at half mast. Proponents of the Waterloo claim say earlier celebrations in other locations were either informal, non-communal or one-off events.

In the late 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were held on May 30 across the country. State legislatures passed proclamations designating the day, and the Army and Navy passed regulations for proper observance at their facilities.

It wasn’t until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who died in all of America’s wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, although it is still often referred to as Decoration Day. It was then also placed on the last Monday in May, just like some other federal holidays.

Some states have Confederate observances

Many Southern states also have their own days to honor the Confederate dead. Mississippi celebrates Confederate Memorial Day on the last Monday in April, Alabama on the fourth Monday in April, and Georgia on April 26.

North Carolina and South Carolina observe it on May 10, Louisiana on June 3, and Tennessee calls the date Confederate Decoration Day. Texas celebrates Confederate Heroes Day on January 19, and Virginia calls the last Monday in May Confederate Memorial Day.

General Logan’s order for his posts to decorate graves in 1868 “with the best flowers of spring” urged, “We must guard their graves with sacred vigilance.” …Let pleasant paths invite the comings and goings of respectful visitors and loving mourners. Let no negligence, no ravages of time testify to the present or to future generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.

The crowd attending the first Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery was about the same size as those attending today’s celebration, about 5,000 people. Then, as now, small American flags were placed on each grave – a tradition followed today in many national cemeteries. In recent years, the custom has grown in many families to decorate the graves of all deceased loved ones.

The origins of special services to honor those who die in war date back to antiquity. Athenian leader Pericles offered a tribute to the fallen heroes of the Peloponnesian War more than 24 centuries ago that could apply today to the 1.1 million Americans who died in the nation’s wars: Not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions, but there also remains an unwritten memorial of them, engraved not in stone but in the hearts of men.




To ensure that the sacrifices of America’s fallen heroes are never forgotten, in December 2000, the United States Congress passed and the President signed into law “The National Moment of Remembrance Act”, PL 106-579, creating the White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance.

The commission’s charter is “to encourage the people of the United States to give back to their country, which provides them with so much freedom and opportunity” by encouraging and coordinating commemorations in the United States of Memorial Day and of the National Moment of Remembrance.

At 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, all Americans are encouraged by the National Moment of Remembrance to pause wherever they are for a moment of silence to remember and honor those who have died serving the nation. “It’s a way for all of us to help bring the memorial back to Memorial Day,” said Carmella LaSpada, founder of Moment of Remembrance.

Zach will cross the stage, overcoming more than one obstacle, graduating from high school in the first class of Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) Adult High School.




Zach’s high school experience was a journey that met with more twists and turns than anyone could have predicted. Multiple schools, multiple states, a pandemic, over a year of virtual learning, and a few short-sighted teen picks brought Delatorre to adult high school in 2022.

“It was a blessing in disguise,” Zach said. He struggled against outside pressures and was warned that he was on a dangerous path. “[Since middle school] I was told I wouldn’t graduate and I would be a dropout, and that was disheartening,” he said. “It made me feel like a failure. It made me want to drop out of school.

Seeing the potential in Zach, Dr. Kim Sigears and several teachers stepped in and encouraged him to imagine a different future. Dr. Sigears wanted him to focus on school, ignore other choices, and invest in himself.

“Once I made the decision to continue in adult high school, Ms. Tracy [Dewese] gave me hope; the staff gave me hope. He had several people in his corner who believed in his abilities. Zach thanks Mrs. McKnight and Mrs. Sparn of Clarksville High School for continuing to believe in him. He insisted more than anything, “My mom and dad gave me hope not to give up and kept cheering me on.”

Once students are enrolled in adult high school, school counselors work with each student individually. They create a plan to help students complete their other graduation requirements. Each student’s needs are different, and staff remain flexible and supportive as they work toward graduation.

For Zach, adult high school ignited the belief that he had failed. “I’ve never had such an opportunity,” he said. “It was really good for me. It was different.” There was freedom to work independently. The teachers helped with the subject but allowed Zach to control the pace. He found the ability to self-direct to be a welcome change in learning style.

“In the morning, I walked through the door. Mrs. Tracy always greeted me and walked me back to class. There’s a lot of positivity there. The positivity drove him to keep pushing himself. The supportive environment was what he needed. “It was the best administration and the best staff I have ever seen. I felt comfortable.

There were still times when the situation became almost overwhelming. “What got me through the whole process wasn’t self-motivation. I’m anxious and can get overwhelmed with my thoughts. But I learned to do one thing and move on to the next. Sometimes I just had to do it. I learned a lot of patience for myself. If I didn’t have patience for myself, I wouldn’t succeed. He stayed focused, especially when he considered everyone behind him to support him. “I thought, ‘My grandma and my uncle are from Nevada. So I just have to do this.


As he confidently plans his future, Zach looks forward to a career in the trades. “I want a career in HVAC or welding,” he said. These highly demanded and qualified professions will give him the foundation to build a better future. He credits a course he took years ago with initially sparking his interest in a career as a welder.

“I like working with my hands,” he explains. “In first year, I took an agriculture course. We had 4×4 sheets and we were welding the sheets together to make a birdhouse.

Zach’s journey is proof that you can’t be sure which path life will take, and it’s always possible to find an opportunity if you’re willing to put in the work. The impact of his success has yet to fully resonate. Soon, he will join the other 97 graduates from adult high school. “It will hit me on Wednesday when I walk,” he laughs.

“It feels good to know that not only did I prove everyone wrong, but I finally believed in myself and saw that, yes, I can do it once I put in my mind and my heart. I struggle with anxiety and ADHD. I was able to overcome this and see that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to.

The search for acceptance – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: May 24, 2022 07:42

People say usernames exist to protect privacy. Robin Trimingham argues they are also used for nefarious purposes

“Everything old is new again.” Jonathan Swift 1710

Finding commonalities in an increasingly diverse world has always been the blessing or the downfall of any civilization. When we focus on what separates us, we stumble; when we embrace what unites us, we thrive.

When we read these words neatly typed on a page, it sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it?

So why is the lesson of acceptance the only lesson humans seem unable to learn?

Why do we persist in imagining that we are so superior to those around us that we are somehow qualified to decide who is worthy of acceptance and equally justified in rejecting everyone else’s efforts?

In other words, when did the world go from a world in which all men were created equal to a world in which we felt comfortable – even entitled – to judge each other? ?

Perhaps the real problem is buried in our interpretation of the meaning of the word “acceptance” itself.

The actual origins of this word are a bit nebulous, but searching a bit I found a reference to the Latin phrase “alterius acceptionem”, which can be translated as openness to others and has been used to describe a unqualified state.

In other words, once upon a time individuals were encouraged to simply be open to others, not to start deciding how much another person “deserved” openness.

But somewhere along the line things changed and acceptance ceased to be something everyone was entitled to. It became something that individuals had the right to bestow upon themselves — or not — based on their own set of norms, values, insecurities, or biases.

And that in a nutshell, as my grandmother would say, is the problem that still plagues us today. For once a concept becomes something we feel entitled to, we stop questioning its veracity.

It becomes our right and we jealously protect it and defend it to the bitter end – no matter how irrational, no matter what – because if there’s one thing we humans have learned to do, it’s to defend our rights.

I would like to hope that we are more enlightened than our ancestors and raise our children to be more open and accepting of each other. In some ways, we are.

But the critical old guard is still very much alive and getting pretty sneaky.

If in doubt, just count the number of places where you post comments and interact with others online under the protection of a pseudonym (i.e. username). Everyone tells you that these usernames exist to protect your privacy, but when did we also have the right to use this fabricated cloak of secrecy for nefarious purposes – to intimidate and humiliate those we don’t accept not ?

More importantly, why do we continue to read and “like” these malicious comments, further emboldening the authors?

It has long been said that the pen is mightier than the sword.

Do we really want to continue to protect people’s right to attack each other in this covert way?

Or have we finally reached a stage where we are ready to take responsibility for our words and actions?

In other words, are we finally ready to embrace the simple undeniable truth that we are all created equal and are entitled to acceptance and respect – even when we disagree with each other, whether we are right or wrong.

Work continues on a Belco asset removal project to dismantle and remove hazardous materials and demolish buildings no longer in use.

the Belco’s website said that the program was set up for several reasons, including the need for a deep cleanup of the site and some security concerns.

But he added that the project “was ultimately driven by the future requirements of diversifying our sources of energy production”.

The website said the ARP, which began in September 2021, was expected to last between one and two years.

Wayne Caines, Belco’s chairman, said earlier: “Everyone in Bermuda is a part of this journey and we appreciate your patience, understanding and support as we move forward with our work towards our goal of achieving Net Zero by 2050.”

Hopefully we can do it under more normal circumstances without too many restrictions and with spectators to watch the games.

UEFA Women’s Euro: July 6-31

Another event you should watch out for is the Women’s Euro, which returns this year after a small postponement. The event was supposed to take place in 2021, but as the Summer Olympics have been postponed from 2020 to 2021, the Women’s Euro has instead been postponed to 2022.

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.

Asian Games in China postponed, along with other international sporting events

By Sports events

The Asian Games, World University Games and two Diamond League athletics meets, all in China, will not take place as planned this summer amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Asian Games, scheduled for Sept. 10-25 in Hangzhou, are a quadrennial multi-sport competition for Asian nations featuring around 10,000 athletes, a similar number to the Summer Olympics.

For many athletes, the Asian Games are more important than the world championships of their individual sport.

The Asian Games organizers were “very well prepared to deliver the Games on time despite the global challenges”, according to a press release from the Olympic Council of Asia. The postponement came after “carefully considering the pandemic situation and the size of the Games”.

New dates will be announced soon, organizers said.

The World University Games, a biennial multi-sport student-athlete competition scheduled to be held in Chengdu from June 26 to July 7, has been postponed for a second consecutive year. The event will take place on upcoming dates in 2023.

“The decision to reschedule Chengdu 2021 was not made easily, but it is the right decision for college athletes,” said the president of the International College Sports Federation. Leonz Eder said in a press release. “Their well-being is always our number one priority. Continued uncertainty over conditions made postponement the wise choice – a number of national college sports federations had already changed their plans.

Ahead of this second postponement, some nations, including Britain and Canada, announced they would not send teams, citing multiple reasons including health and safety during the pandemic and the war in Ukraine.

The World University Games bring together more than 5,000 athletes in many Olympic sports and some non-Olympic events, such as wushu for the Chengdu edition.

The Diamond League, the top-level international athletics circuit, has announced that its two Chinese matches on July 30 and August 6 in Shanghai and Shenzhen will not take place “due to travel restrictions and strict security requirements. quarantine currently in place for entry into China.” ”

A substitute meeting will be held in Chorzow, Poland on August 6.

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.

Nintendo Switch Sports leak reveals possible new sporting events

By Sports events

Nintendo Switch Sports was recently released for the Nintendo Switch console and as a variety of sports games, it has a very low amount of content to enjoy. With only six games available at launch, and with only one additional sport to be released as DLC this fall (Golf Mode), there’s not a lot of value to complete this package as a whole. However, it looks like data miners have discovered that Nintendo Switch Sports may receive more than one additional DLC update in the future.

In a Posting on Twitter made by “Jack” (@Wipeoutjack7), the user discovered some interesting filenames hidden in the game files and mentioned discovering two sports: basketball and dodgeball. While it’s very possible that these are two sports modes that were planned at some point but never left the development stage, it’s also very possible that these are spaces reserved for new modes that may be available sometime after the fall golf mode update.

Adding more sports modes to the game is pretty much a welcome request, as current game modes are currently lacking. Even though the game contains six games compared to the five found in the original Wii Sports, three of those games, Volleyball, Tennis, and Badminton, mechanically play the same when using the Joycons. Of course, compared to Wii Sports Resort, which offers more than 16 different game modes, the value that Nintendo Switch Sports seemed even less than before.

While being able to unlock new in-game outfits every week is a nice touch, there definitely needs to be a bit more to see and do in Nintendo Switch Sports, so if Nintendo manages to release at least a few more game modes, maybe -being one per season would give players plenty of reasons to return to the game.

Nintendo Switch Sports is now available for the Nintendo Switch.

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.

Celebrating vee-ohn-yay – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Condrieu, the homeland of Viognier

International Viognier Day is celebrated annually on April 29.

There are probably many discussions about how to pronounce the name of this grape variety which, in percentage terms, has grown much more than any other in the last fifty years.

If you check online, you can see “vee-aa-nyay”, “vee-own-yay”, “vee-ON-yay”. Admittedly, the least successful essay I’ve heard locally is “wog-ner”.

Years of enjoying wines from this fruit source have made me settle for “vee-ohn-yay,” and I maintain that’s probably okay.

I think I’m also right to say that in 1975, when I first entered the wine business, there was perhaps only one vineyard left of this beautiful varietal in the whole world.

When Jancis Robinson wrote the book Grapes & Wines in 1985, she said the Viognier hardly deserved a mention because she could only find 80 acres in total.

We can definitely call it “the comeback child” with worldwide plantings of around 35,000 acres. One account I found said there were only 17 acres left in 1965; it was very close to extinction!

I like the saying: “Viognier is for those of us who like to stop and smell the flowers. Honeysuckle, mandarin, mango, mayflower, vanilla, nutmeg and clove. The one that usually identifies it to me is the delicious ripe peach and physical stickiness that gives it a creamy feel that you can literally see when the wine is poured.

The legend says that the Roman emperor Probus brought this grape variety to France, and we will start with that of the AOC de Condrieu where it is the only grape variety authorized to be planted, and only with old strains which maintain the richness of this grape variety.

The total vineyard area of ​​this small appellation on the steep northern slopes of the Rhone Valley is only around 420 acres and it is considered the spiritual home of Viognier.

Our 2019 Chapoutier Condrieu Guest is produced by a leading family of Rhône winegrowers for over 200 years, since 1808. They are today the leaders in the field of biodynamics throughout France.

Pour and observe its deep golden yellow with green highlights. The nose is very fruity with exotic fruits (pineapple), acacia flower, lychee, apricot and white peach and it is round and full with a good length in the mouth and a final touch of vanilla. .

The soils of the vineyard are composed of altered schists and granites which are revealed in the wine by an aromatic power and a great complexity. This type of soil also gives the wine freshness and minerality.

If you have Asian or Oriental food, this is perfection. Simply sipping it is also a pleasure. Critic Jeb Dunnock gives it a very credible 94/100. $62 (Stock #9450).

Now we only move a few meters from the old limit of Condrieu and the same family offer you Chapoutier La Combe Pilate Viognier 2019 and while their winemaker observes, decides and guides, they allow Mother Nature to have the last word.

The soils of the Chapoutier estate know neither pesticides nor herbicides, the floral growth of the vine is essential. The natural cycles of the earth, sun and moon are also taken into account, as required by the principles of biodynamic agriculture.

After harvest, direct pressing of the whole bunches followed by a selection of the best juices from the pressing. Settling followed by fermentation in old 600 liter oak barrels followed by aging for 8 to 9 months in stainless steel vats.

The wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation and a very light batonnage of the lees (batonnage) during the first months of ageing. As with all Chapoutier wines, this wine bears Braille on the label.

I haven’t mentioned what you can see, smell or taste because you can pay $27 and experience the pleasure of your own impressions, which I promise will be favorable. (Stock #9438).

My go-to Viognier over the years has been Chapoutier Domaine des Granges Mirabel Viognier and I’m not the only one, because we came out of the 2018 vintage that we have on our list.

I do want to mention the 2020 vintage though, as it is expected to arrive in May. The cellar tells us that it is quite deep greenish yellow with aromas of apricot, pear and marmalade. Their sommelier offers seafood, including salmon as an accompaniment.

Like the others here, it has the Demeter symbol on the label to say it has been certified biodynamic.

I often like the tone of reviews that have been translated into English from another language and here is one about this wine from Europe: “Pear aroma on the first nose, an elegant backdrop here with a good tone clear, pleasant and decisive. The palate is good; it’s great to have a clear Viognier. The exotic fruits come together halfway. Ace wine!

Our stock is #9454 oneAnd if you find a bottle of the 2018 in one of our stores, the price is $24.55.

If we travel to the New World, the only example I can offer you is 2020 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier blend that has been for many years now, the best-selling wine, in the crates, from this iconic Napa Valley winery.

Canadian writer Natalie MacLean comments, “Pine Ridge 2020 is great value. A dynamic blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier, the grapes for this vintage come from the banks of the Sacramento River in Clarksburg with Viognier wine grapes from California’s Lodi wine region.

“Dry, lush and medium-bodied with flavors of ripe apple, passion fruit, ginger and citrus on the palate. Refrigerate and enjoy with grilled pork chops. Chenin blanc viognier pairings: seafood fondue, grilled chicken, grilled shellfish.

A nice refresher for the upcoming weather for $24.75 (Stock No. 6037).

Calling all student entrepreneurs – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: April 28, 2022 9:35 PM

The Bermuda Economic Development Corporation is accepting applications for its fifth annual Student Entrepreneur Summer Program.

The SSEP provides students aged 16-23 with the resources and support needed to start, grow and sustain their own business.

The eight-week initiative will run from July 4 to August 26.

The program is designed to make young Bermudians the next wave of entrepreneurs on the island.

A maximum of 15 students will receive educational training, a weekly financial stipend and start-up funds to run their businesses, the BEDC said.

In addition to initial training, BEDC staff will continue to support students to ensure they maximize the experience and earn as much as they can during the summer months.

The three participants with the highest profits will win an additional financial reward.

Deshun Simmons, Program Manager and Deputy Head of Communications and Development at BEDC, said: “The goal of the program is not only to help participants earn money over the summer, but also to instill in them an entrepreneurial spirit that will help them prepare. for their future working in business or as entrepreneurs.

Businesses started last year by students included luxury soy candles, herbal skincare, clothing and lifestyle brand, furniture renovation, Japanese anime clothing and bubble tea.

A Norwich sex offender took photos of girls at sporting events

By Sports events

Update:
13:44 29 April 2022

A Norfolk runner who has admitted indecent image offenses has taken close-up photos of girls wearing tight shorts at running and gym events.

David Murrell, 46, a former member of a Norwich-based running club, uploaded hundreds of indecent images of children.

Norwich Crown Court heard and uploaded footage to the internet Murrell also took pictures of children himself at running and gymnastics events.

Chris Youell, prosecuting, said photos taken by the defendant of real girls at running events in June and August 2019 included girls wearing “tight running shorts and sports bras”.

Murrell also took photos of girls at gymnastics events in December 2019 with the images showing “close-ups of the genital areas.”

The court heard photos of the children were found in a ‘hidden’ folder on her phone that was part of a secret app that needed a PIN to access it.

Mr Youell said Murrell was arrested by police after an indecent Category B image of a child uploaded by the defendant led officers to execute a search warrant at his home in July 2020.

Devices including a cell phone and a hard drive were recovered and searched and found to contain indecent images of children.

He was found to have uploaded and taken indecent images of children over a three-year period between 2017 and 2020.

Some of the images were category A, the most severe, but there were also category B and C images found.

These included 501 category C images, of which 424 were downloaded from the internet and 77 taken by the defendant, some of which were duplicates.

Police also recovered conversations the accused had with other people online, including one where he discussed “child sexual abuse”.

Mr Youell said: “There was clearly something deep in his life where he fantasized about young children and young girls.

“He was talking about it on the internet, taking pictures and uploading pictures.”

Murrell, of Camperdown in Great Yarmouth, appeared in court on Thursday April 28 after admitting three counts of making an indecent image of a child and one count of distributing an indecent image of a child.

He also pleaded guilty to six counts of taking indecent photos of a child.

The mother of one of the children who had their photo taken read a victim impact statement in which she described the police knock on the door.

She said it was something she would “never forget” and felt “like her world had stopped”.

The woman said, “It’s something I don’t really think I’ll get over.”

She also described in court the “confusion” and “sheer terror” as well as the “disbelief and disgust” she felt.

The woman added that she lay awake at night ‘worrying about what might have happened if he hadn’t been caught’.

The father of another victim in the case described ‘dismay’ at what happened and he felt and hoped Murrell would get the help he needed.

Damien Moore, mitigating, said nothing he could say could ‘undo the damage Mr Murrell did’.

Mr Moore said Murrell wanted to apologize to the parents of the children involved and to the children themselves.

He said the defendant was ‘a completely broken man’ who had ‘lost everything’ and was going to have to live the rest of his life with ‘shame and embarrassment’ from the offenses he had committed.

Mr Moore said Murrell was ‘at rock bottom’ after going down a ‘self-destructive path’ and needed help and rehabilitation.

He said the defendant “knows he needed to be punished and was ready for it”, but urged the court to consider a non-custodial sentence.

Judge Katharine Moore adjourned sentencing until Wednesday, May 4, but warned Murrell that “the threshold for detention had been crossed by a country mile.”

Judge Moore took him into custody until next week due to concerns about his welfare.

It is understood Murrell was a member of the Norfolk Gazelles racing club, but was no longer entitled to be a member when the allegations emerged.

Turkey adopts TV series, social media and sporting events for exports

By Sports events

Turkey plans to embark on a new strategy to promote its brands and products and is looking to adopt several channels such as television and sports organizations, as well as new store concepts, as it seeks to expand the range of its exports to distant markets.

Over the past few years, Turkey has expressed its determination to increase sales in remote geographies and unveiled action plans.

To ensure greater recognition for its export products, Turkey now plans to engage with TV series and movies, video games and influential names on social media, Anadolu Agency (AA) reported on Sunday. ).

He cited the draft strategy prepared by the Ministry of Commerce, which has been sent to relevant non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for assessment.

These include USA, Australia, Brazil, China, Indonesia, Philippines, South Africa, South Korea, India, Japan , Canada, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Chile, Thailand and Vietnam.

Total overseas sales to these countries soared 42.2% year-on-year in 2021, reaching $27.16 billion, according to data compiled by the Assembly of Turkish Exporters (TIM ).

The figure rose from $18.9 billion in 2020, the data showed, despite the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and disruption to supply chains.

Turkey currently holds only a 0.26% share of the $8.2 trillion in imports from the 18 target countries, located at an average distance of 8,500 kilometers (5,280 miles) from the country.

Ankara plans to further open up to these markets and increase exports to a level of at least $82 billion.

Turkey’s overall exports reached a record $225.4 billion in 2021, and the government revised its target to $250 billion and $300 billion set for 2022 and 2023, respectively.

The strategy projects in-depth analysis and guides for businesses in each of the countries, including potential product groups, investment environment, trade and business policies, and market characteristics.

The sub-sectors will be determined and their potentials in the countries concerned will be analyzed, followed by the establishment of targeted entry strategies, in accordance with the roadmap.

Sector trade delegations will make more frequent visits to relevant markets, supported by general trade delegation trips at least once a year.

Turkey plans to strengthen financial support for sector delegations and increase engagements in national, individual and virtual fairs.

The strategy also includes increased support for advertising activities in print and visual media, also targeting country consumption channels, shopping malls and chain stores. The activities will seek in particular to highlight the tag “Made in Turkey”.

Other activities related to Turkish goods and services will include promotions and cooperation with social media influencers.

Television series and films, as well as video games, will also be adopted to increase awareness, through cooperation with series and film actors and product placement on these platforms.

Events that can increase the recognition of Turkish television series and film productions in the international arena will also be sought. And there are plans to increase support for participation in such internationally renowned programs, film festivals, biennials and festivals.

Tiukinhoy also said they are looking forward to hosting the next season in September. He added that he hoped to have regular games by then.

“When we have this season, we still have to comply with all the regulations we have.” (NPC)

Recall of Kinder chocolates – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: April 12, 2022 12:40 PM

Health scare: Kinder products have been pulled from shelves on the islands for health reasons (photo provided)

A popular chocolate bar has been pulled from store shelves over fears of possible salmonella contamination.

Kinder products, which include chocolate eggs and bars, have been removed from Lindo grocery stores.

In a statement, the supermarket said it had received a “massive recall notice for all Kinder products”.

A company spokeswoman said: “”We urge all of our customers who have purchased any of these items from Lindo stores to return them as soon as possible for a full refund and do not consume them.

“If the products have already been consumed and you are concerned, please consult your GP.”

The statement said manufacturer Ferrero issued a massive recall notice for all Kinder products that were manufactured at any of its sites in Belgium between June 2021 and today.

Affected Kinder Products

Kinder Surprise 20g

Kinder Surprise 20g x 3 packets

Kinder 150g Egg Hunt Kit

Kinder Mini Eggs 75g

Kinder Surprise 100g

Kinder Chocolates 70g, 200g, 320g

The statement did not specify why the product was removed.

But according to reports from the British Broadcasting Corporation, the recall was made due to a salmonella scare.

Products were pulled from UK and US shelves last week.

The BBC report said: “Ferrero has recalled some of its Kinder chocolates from stores in the United States due to potential salmonella contamination.

“Kinder Happy Moments Chocolate Assortment and Kinder Mix Chocolate Candy Basket are voluntarily recalled,” said Ferrero North America.

“It comes after the company recalled its Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs from UK stores earlier this week.”

The report adds that manufacturer Ferrero made the decision after salmonella was detected at a factory in Belgium.

It came after more than 60 people in the UK, mostly young children, were infected with salmonella in an outbreak linked to Kinder Surprise sweets.

Bermuda residents may soon be able to pay government fees online with cryptocurrency.

A government RFQ, posted on www.gov.bm, said it was looking to modify the open-source code of the Gov.Uk Pay payment gateway for local use on the gov.bm site.

He added: “The goal is to provide the public with a consistent and uniform experience when paying online.

“The Bermuda Purposes Code Amendment will provide the government with the necessary functionality to:

• Process an online payment: allow customers to enter their credit card details and complete a transaction

• Retrieve Payment Details: Verify the payment by retrieving the status and all relevant payment information.

Major sporting events are back in Singapore, bringing business to SMEs as the country reports 2,568 new Covid-19 cases

By Sports events

SINGAPORE, April 11 (The Straits Times/ANN): The return of major sporting events to Singapore this year could see the recovery of the events ecosystem occur sooner than expected.

Millions will be spent to organize such events, generate business, create jobs and boost the economy.

The two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic had seen many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) battered.

But big events such as the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens being held this weekend, as well as upcoming events such as the 2022 OCBC Cycle and the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix, could boost the economy through the creation of new jobs in all sectors.

Rostam Umar, head of strategy group at Sport Singapore, said more than 15 major sporting events were scheduled for 2022, up from four in 2021.

Paul Kent, partner at KPMG in Singapore, said that in addition to the staff needed for these events, other secondary industries such as security, logistics and marketing are also benefiting from increased demand for their services.

More than 300 people and 40 companies, from industries ranging from healthcare and hospitality to automotive and technology, are involved in next month’s OCBC round in different roles such as sponsors, contractors and suppliers.

Koh Ching Ching, group brand and communications manager at OCBC Bank, said the bank has invested millions of dollars in OCBC Cycle over the past 13 years.

“A mass event like this spurs the growth of related businesses like personal bikes and peripherals because it brings people together to pursue a fun group activity.”

Selena Ling, chief economist and head of research and cash strategy at OCBC, said sporting events can add dynamism and buzz to the entire hospitality and entertainment industry, which could in turn attract more visitors to Singapore.

“They will go hand-in-hand with the acceleration of the recovery of sectors related to aviation and tourism,” she added.

The return of mass sporting events comes as the government set aside $500 million to revive the tourism sector, following the reopening of Singapore’s borders to all fully vaccinated travellers.

Kent said Singapore will need to quickly restore confidence in its economic stability and also reclaim its position as a regional hub by increasing the country’s visibility as a viable venue for large-scale international events.

The cancellation of many live events since 2020 to curb the spread of Covid-19 had also forced event operators out of work.

Kurt Wee, president of the Association of Small and Medium Businesses, noted how many businesses had to take out temporary bridging loans to get through the crisis.

“We certainly hope that as more events are rolled out, there will be sustained growth in demand, so businesses can begin to benefit from the return of operations and sustained production capacity.” , did he declare.

The HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens saw 91% of its tickets sold. About 22,000 spectators attended the event this weekend.

More than 90% of suppliers and partners who worked on the event were local SMEs, organizer Singapore Rugby Sevens said.

Mark Tan, director of event logistics company TKH Deco, said the upcoming OCBC cycle will be the first major sporting event his company handles this year. This will bring about $200,000 in revenue.

“My company has had no revenue from live events for almost two years. Fortunately, we have managed to get business by providing barricades to workers’ dormitories,” said Mr. Tan, whose workforce has grown from 60 to 40 due to the pandemic.

“I will bid for the Formula 1 race. Hopefully I can reach 50% of my income before the pandemic.”

Daryl Tan, senior manager of cycle organizer OCBC Pich Event Management, is grateful that in-person rides are resuming this year after a two-year hiatus, but with a cap of 2,000 attendees.

He called it a small step towards the recovery of the sporting events ecosystem, as in-person events create many opportunities for businesses.

Infinitus Productions, which staged around 15 mass sporting events in 2019, has five races in the works for 2022.

The company’s chief executive, Mr. Jeffrey Foo, expects this year’s revenue to reach around $4-5 million, or about 40% of its revenue in 2019.

“A lot of businesses have suffered from the lack of events. I had to take out a bridging loan to weather the storm. If events don’t come back this year, I would have to close up shop,” said Mr Foo, whose l The company had previously organized races such as The Straits Times Run, Sundown Marathon and Great Eastern Women’s Run.

“Fortunately, we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Singapore reported 2,568 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 on Monday, bringing the total to 1,140,569.

Among the new cases, 388 cases were detected by PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests and 2,180 by ART (rapid antigen test) tests, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Health.

Of the PCR cases, 373 were local transmissions and 15 were imported cases. Of the ART cases with mild symptoms and assessed as low risk, 2,119 were local transmissions and 61 imported cases, respectively.

A total of 339 cases are currently hospitalized, including 18 cases in intensive care units.

Two more patients died of complications from the Covid-19 infection, bringing the death toll to 1,303, the ministry said. – The Straits Times/ANN

Boris Johnson says ‘biological men’ shouldn’t compete in women’s sporting events

By Sports events

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he does not believe transgender women should compete in women’s sporting events, a view he called “sensible” but possibly “controversial”.

Transgender athletes competing in the sport have been in the news lately after transgender cyclist Emily Bridges was declared ineligible to compete in her first elite women’s race by cycling’s world governing body. Issues cited around the issue in general were inclusion, sporting fairness and safety.

Johnson was speaking on a range of issues, including the UK government’s approach to banning so-called conversion therapy, before tell Sky News“I don’t think biological men should compete in women’s sporting events. It might be a controversial thing to say, but it just makes sense to me.

“I also happen to think that women should have spaces – whether in hospitals, prisons or changing rooms – that are dedicated to them. That’s all my thinking has developed on this issue.

“If it puts me in conflict with others then we have to work it out. That’s not to say I’m not extremely sympathetic to people who want to change gender, transition and it’s vital that we give people maximum love and support in making these decisions.These are complex issues and cannot be solved with quick and easy legislation alone.It takes a lot of thought to get it right.

The most recent IOC guidelines – updated in November 2021 after the Tokyo Olympics – said it should not be assumed that a transgender athlete automatically had an unfair advantage in women’s events.

He recommended that individual sports under the Olympic umbrella – such as track and field, weightlifting, gymnastics and swimming – set their own rules regarding transgender athletes.

World Rugby has banned trans women from playing at elite level, while the domestic policy of the Rugby Football Union in England allows trans women to play, under certain testosterone-based conditions.

How Bidders for Major Sporting Events Should Approach ESG Criteria

By Sports events

Wednesday, April 06, 2022 By Matt Evans , Gino Murugesan

At the launch of the ‘We Love 2023 Tour’ in Paris, Rugby World Cup France 2023 CEO Claude Atcher declared:

France 2023 has adopted a vision: to have a positive impact for rugby, the planet and France by offering a responsible event that meets the challenges of today and tomorrow. The 2023 Rugby World Cup will be more than a sporting event. He will leave a legacy.” (emphasis added)

His bold statement sums up an ever-growing trend in major sporting events (MPE): What positive impact will an MSE have and leave in the host city, country or world? Although heritage and sustainability considerations are nothing new, in recent years there has been a refocusing of the concept around the new trend of ‘ESG‘ – namely environmental, social and governance issues. The MSE organization touches on a plethora of ESG issues, including gender/diversity inclusion, human rights, environmental impact and urban redevelopment.

This article examines the various ways in which these issues are addressed through the implementation of explicit and implicit ESG requirements that have been included in MSE tendering processes. More specifically, it examines:

  1. What are the ESG criteria;
  2. The nature and scope of ESG criteria within the current bid requirements for the Olympic Games and the Football and Rugby World Cups; and
  3. Whether there was significant compliance with the criteria.

Answering these questions will help us understand the changing legacy and sustainability requirements for MSEs; current requirements for any country wishing to host an MSE; and whether the requirements have a lasting impact on ESG issues in the host country.

By Sports events

With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, sports leaders in Cebu City say the city is now ready to host major local and national tournaments, including the Palarong Pambansa football event. (CDN PHOTO/TONEE DESPOJO)

CEBU CITY, Philippines – Cebu City is now ready to host local and national sporting events, Cebu sports stakeholders said during the city hall interactive discussion titled “Panaghisgot” on Wednesday, April 6, 2022.

The forum featured Cebu City Vice Mayor Dondon Hontiveros, former Cebu City Sports Commission (CCSC) and now Board Member Edward Hayco, Cebu City Sports Center (CCSC) Director Jesse Taborada, Central Visayas Football Association (CVFA) Board Member Jose Guy. Ceniza and multi-title football coach Glen Ramos.

During the forum, the guests revealed many sporting events planned in Cebu City for the rest of the year after announcing on February 25, 2022 that the city had authorized the organization of all forms of sports at all levels with a set of guidelines.

One of them is the Palarong Pambansa Football Tournament at CCSC scheduled for April 25-27, 2022 with many school teams across the country.

The teams will compete in a bubble set up as a Department of Education (DepEd) ‘dry trial’ before going full-throttle on the Palarong Pambansa next year.

Additionally, the CVFA will host the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) U-19 Champions Regional Elimination in June at the same venue.

“We hope it will go from April 25 to 27. Bubble ni siya, it was planned man gyud when the pandemic started, bisan pa karon with the easing of restrictions, we decided to go through, all the contingencies naay surge, dili na maapektuhan, ug mahadlok mabalik ta ato, makapadayon ra gihapon,” Ceniza said.

On the other hand, Hontiveros revealed many upcoming sporting events in Cebu this year.

First, he said Cebu City plans to hold an inter-barangay basketball and volleyball tournament, tentatively set after the election.

“From the sports budget, part was devoted to the city’s recovery program during the Typhoon Odette pandemic. We work with the resources we have. Naa ta inter-barangay, basketball, volleyball, we set guidelines, dili pa namo ma supply all bata-bata nga players,” Hontiveros said.

Second, he mentioned a major tennis tournament featuring players and teams from Cebu City and Bacolod with further details to be announced soon.

“Cebu has four teams, two Bacolod teams, hopefully after the end of April, sud pa man sa atong budget, ug wala nay election ban, we can give na prizes. Also, the Bohol Spartan Race held recently should be brought here to Cebu,” Hontiveros added.

Meanwhile, Hayco told the forum that CCSC has been busy during the onset of the pandemic with its virtual training program and tournaments.

He revealed that they had made sure the CCSC maintained their grassroots sports program as a way to help the mental health of young people in Cebu City.

“In fact, even during the pandemic, wala jud nato gihunong atong programa, we made sure all the kids stayed online, we had online training, online competition. Bisag dili siya as effective as face to face, at least ang bata ug mga ginikanan, kept them sane during the pandemic,” Hayco said.

Hayco recently held the very successful 14th Danceport sa Sugbo, a national face-to-face dancesport competition held in Cebu City which attracted over 400 participants.

In addition to revealing the initial lineup of sporting events taking place in Cebu City in the coming weeks and months, the CCSC, under its new Chairman John Pages, is currently in the process of realigning its schedule and accepting recording of upcoming sporting events. /rcg

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson rejects transgender women in women’s sporting events

By Sports events

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that people born male should not compete in women’s sporting events, after a transgender cyclist was barred from a women’s race.

The debate in Britain over transgender rights has grown increasingly acrimonious, and other members of Johnson’s government have said it should be up to sporting bodies to decide who can compete.

But with splits emerging in both the Conservative and opposition Labor parties, ahead of local elections on May 5, Johnson went further, wading into the gender front of Britain’s so-called “culture wars”.

“I don’t think biological men should compete in women’s sporting events. And that might be a controversial thing to say, but it just makes sense to me,” he told reporters.

“And I also think women should have spaces that are — whether in hospitals, prisons, locker rooms, or wherever — that are dedicated to women,” Johnson added.

His intervention came after the government was forced into an embarrassing U-turn last week, hours after a report said it planned to drop legislation banning ‘gay conversion therapy’.

Following protests from Tory MPs who support a ban, Johnson’s government has said it will press ahead with the legislation – but exclude ‘transgender therapy’, to allow counseling for teenagers seeking a gender change.

The about-face came a day after Tory MP Jamie Wallis became the first UK lawmaker to openly say he was transgender, prompting messages of support from colleagues including Johnson.

The Prime Minister said he was ‘tremendously sympathetic to people who want to change their sex’.

“We will have a ban on gay conversion therapy, which to me is absolutely abhorrent,” he pointed out.

“But there are complexities and sensitivities when you move from the realm of sexuality to gender, and there I’m afraid there are things that I think still need to be worked out.”

Last weekend, transgender cyclist Emily Bridges was ruled out of a women’s race in England after the UCI, the sport’s world governing body, ruled she was ineligible.

The 21-year-old said she felt “harassed and demonized” after the UCI’s decision, which overturned the license given to Bridges by British Cycling, the sport’s main governing body in the UK.

The initial decision to allow Bridges to run had caused major controversy, with threats of a boycott from other runners if she was allowed to compete.

Critics say trans athletes have an unfair advantage even when testosterone levels have been lowered due to the impact of male puberty on the body.

The government’s decision to exclude conversion therapy for transgender people from the upcoming bill prompted its LGBT+ trade envoy Iain Anderson to resign on Tuesday.

It also led to more than 100 charities and groups pulling out of the government’s first international LGBT+ conference, which was due to take place in June, forcing the cancellation of the event.

Putin the Russian pariah – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Updated: April 05, 2022 08:25

Dear Sir,

Vladimir Putin is Adolf Hitler reincarnated. Hitler attempted to create a German empire throughout Europe during World War II. Putin wants to recreate a Russian empire in Europe from the invasion of Ukraine. Unfortunately, the democracies show tendencies of military distrust similar to those the Allies showed against Hitler’s initial invasions.

Land grabbing: Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine was widely criticized by the international community (Photograph by Alexander Zemlianichenko)

Putin thought he would invade Ukraine, but he met fierce resistance from the Ukrainians. Increased NATO military preparedness, especially in Poland, and tough economic sanctions could dissuade Putin from his expansionist policy, but that won’t save Ukraine. NATO and the United States should have sent military forces to western Ukraine. For fear of Russia, the Biden administration hesitated to transfer Polish planes to Ukraine. We let Ukraine down, and that will embolden Putin.

The free world must continue to support Ukraine with military and economic assistance, and sanctions must be maintained against Russia until it leaves Ukraine. Thereafter, Russia should be subjected to trillions of dollars in war reparations starting with its seized assets; and Putin and his cronies should be charged with war crimes.

The United States must reassess its national security posture vis-à-vis Russia.

Russia’s position among the countries has been damaged beyond repair, and Putin and Russia are considered outcasts of the world and enemies of humanity.

Bridging the cultural divide – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Created: April 02, 2022 08:00

Reverend Gavin Tyte is a former professional beatboxer and rapper (Photograph courtesy of The Living Church Foundation.org)

When I write the word “church”, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

I assume you are imagining a building or service (taking place inside a building). Well, those are expressions of church but not of church. If you have been reading my articles for a few weeks, you will know that the church is not something you go to, but a community of people held together by the love of God expressed through the person of Jesus Christ.

How the church speaks, well, that’s up for grabs. Churches express themselves in different ways, depending on the social and cultural context in which they were established and exist. The Anglican Church of Bermuda organized itself into parishes and erected buildings with pointed towers in which they could gather to offer worship to God. To fill the big spaces with big sound, they used huge PA systems – otherwise known as pipe organs. They created books with specific words and prayers they found helpful, and sang songs to the catchy tunes of the day.

It is worth remembering that every Christian church was planted once. Each Christian church was born, first from a community that had no buildings, no songs and/or words of its own. I am an Anglican church leader and I can’t help but wonder if we were to plant a Christian church today, how would we do it? What would that look like? What are the things we would hold dear – values, if you will – that would shape and define our lives together?

One of the wonderful things about Christianity is that it expresses itself in any context and in any culture where people find Jesus. And yet, the Church has been guilty of “inculturation”. In other words, it takes people from one context and molds and molds them into a church context.

For example, I’m a longtime member of the global beatboxing community. For those who don’t know what beatboxing is, it’s a form of mouth drumming and is part of the larger hip-hop movement. I created the world’s first beatboxing video tutorials, ran the world’s largest website for beatboxers, and was a judge at the last two world beatboxing championships.

I like beatbox, I like hip-hop, I like the Bible and I like Jesus. To that end, I wrote the entire Gospel of Luke in rap and beatboxed and performed to audiences around the world. So what happens when a young person who grew up in this musical culture gets to know Jesus and becomes a Christian? Do we tell them that they should go to their local church building on a Sunday morning (when they lie down after partying all night), sit on pews (or the only other place they have seen is the courthouse), and expect them to sing Victorian hymns with obscure words accompanied by a pipe organ?

Now I love sacred spaces and pipe organs, especially when played by Angie, our talented organist, but on reflection, I have to admit that I was inculturated in the church. I adopted expressions of church that were not natural to me and since I was ordained a priest, I have fought to keep a foot in both worlds. My calling has been to bridge the gap between church culture and the larger culture. But I don’t do it on my own. This is part of the calling of any Anglican priest. When I was ordained, and each time I took on a new position, I had to do something called the declaration of assent. There are these words:

“The Church of England is part of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, worshiping the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. She professes the faith only revealed in Holy Scripture and set forth in Catholic creeds, which faith the church is called to proclaim anew in every generation.”

Notice the last part: “proclaim anew to every generation.” Let it sink in. It doesn’t say, “proclaim the way it has always been done, using the same formulas that have always been used and using the same language that has always been spoken.” No! The Anglican Church recognizes that to effectively proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and be witnesses to God’s love, we must use methods, language and styles appropriate to the larger social and cultural context in which we find ourselves. I made this public promise in front of the bishop and the congregations I served, and it is something I take very seriously.

Right now there’s a whole world outside of the church that’s a different culture. How does the church bridge this cultural gap? Well, He can do that by making our expressions of worship and ministry culturally relevant. For example, at our all-ages worship at St. Mark’s, we sing modern songs with cool beats, have accessible words, and deliver relevant and engaging talks. In addition to being culturally relevant inside the church, we also proclaim the message of Jesus and witness God’s love outside the church.

One of the ways I seek to connect people to Jesus is through The Hip-Hop Gospel. It is a rhymed version of the Gospel of Luke and is written to connect with a wider non-ecclesiastical culture. In fact, we are a group here in Bermuda looking to bring it to the stage as a musical production. If this is something you would like to get involved in, or if you know someone who would like to get involved, let me know. It’s a very exciting project. You can download a free copy of The Hip-Hop Gospel here: https://thehiphopgospel.com/ and it is also available, for a small fee, in the Kindle store.

So this week may you shine like a star and be Jesus to all you meet inside and outside the church, and may you be blessed to be a blessing.

Amen

Food, drink allowed in designated areas at sporting events from March 29 as Covid-19 rules ease

By Sports events

SINGAPORE — Drinks, keropok and curry puffs are yet to return to the stands, but the local sports fraternity has welcomed the relaxed guidelines announced by national agency Sport Singapore (SportSG) on Sunday March 27 allowing food and drink (F&B) consumption in stadiums.

The revised rules were part of SportSG’s advisory for Sport and Physical Exercise and Activity, which was released three days after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced a number of key changes to safety measures as Singapore heads into a new phase of life with Covid-19.

From Tuesday, the consumption of food and drink is permitted at sporting events in specially designated areas, although it is not permitted in the spectator stands. Even in designated areas, fans will be required to eat or drink at a fixed position and observe safe management measures (SMM) such as safe distancing and group size limits.

Cheering, chanting and whistling will also be permitted at events with spectators if masks are worn.

This is an important development for event organizers and fans.

During the ASEAN Football Federation Championship last December, for example, up to 10,000 fans were allowed each match day at the 55,000-capacity National Stadium and 1,000 at the 6-seater Bishan Stadium. 000 places. Each matchday consisted of up to two matches and spanned over five hours.

As the consumption of food and drink in the two stadiums was not permitted, supporters were given wrist tags which allowed them to re-enter after leaving the stadium between games for a meal.

Some fans took to social media to complain about the downsides and even wrote letters to the Straits Times Forum.

Engineer Syafiq Abdul Rahman, 33, and his five-year-old son were among 15,000 fans who attended Singapore’s 2-1 win over Malaysia at the National Stadium on Saturday. He told ST: “I planned to get into the stadium a bit later than usual, almost around kick-off (8 p.m.), so my child wouldn’t have to stay too long. a long time without hydrating.

“It’s great that the consumption of food and drink will soon be allowed again, so I can bring my family to games earlier so that we can all fully enjoy the stadium and the match atmosphere.”

The new rules also come at the right time for the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens, which will take place on April 9-10 at the National Stadium after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.

The tournament features short, fast-paced rugby sevens matches that start as early as 10 a.m. and end at 7 p.m., with little time between matches.

Portugal implements live odds publication ban for sporting events

By Sports events

Posted: March 23, 2022, 10:23 a.m.

Last update: March 23, 2022, 01:00 a.m.

In-play betting is becoming increasingly popular in the sports world. This is a step backwards in Portugal, however, following the introduction of a new regulation limiting where sportsbooks can publish their odds.

In-play, or live, betting is the act of betting on a particular game as it occurs. It offers challenges that conventional sports betting does not. The odds go up and down faster and bettors need to be able to react accordingly.

It’s not a new concept – some sportsbooks have included in-game options for years. However, the rise of legalization, particularly in the United States, has facilitated increased participation. Portugal decided, however, that in-play bets need not be too exposed.

Portugal tightens in-play betting rules

The Gaming Inspection and Regulation Service (SRIJ, for its Portuguese acronym) established a new rule last week. N°1/2022/SRIJ updates various aspects of the country’s sports betting regulations, including the regulator’s approach to in-play betting.

Now, operators cannot view live odds on any platform, advertising medium or stadium screen. This also means no live odds presentation on Twitter, Facebook feeds and other social media platforms. Operators must restrict the ratings of their own websites.

Disclosure of real-time “odds” outside of the entity’s website explorer, in addition to setting up an easy call-to-play, is not a means that observes and abides by the rules… of the code of the advertising“, explains the SRIJ.

Any operator who breaks the rule potentially faces fines or other penalties, under the regulator’s rules on illegal advertising. The SRIJ has not specified the types of actions it can take if an infringement is discovered.

The aim of the new rule is to limit the exposure of the general public to gambling-related activities. It also aims to prevent any appearance that in-play betting can produce greater returns and to stop the potential for impulse betting.

Repress betting ads

In October 2021, Portugal implemented restrictions on gambling advertisements in the country. The Portuguese government believes that gambling should be treated the same as alcohol. It passed four laws in October 2021 to limit gambling ads.

The introduction of the laws was strongly linked to the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been a huge increase in the number of young people playing the game in Portugal during the lockdowns. This served as a catalyst for the creation of several new restrictions related to different forms of gambling and betting.

In addition, a time limit has also been imposed on advertisements from game providers. In Portugal, suppliers are not allowed to advertise in the media between 07:30 and 21:00. This is similar to policies in other countries, including the UK, which crack down on sports betting advertisements.

The SRIJ reports that the online sports betting category reached €423.8 million ($466.18 million) in the first quarter of 2021. Compared to the same period in 2020, this represents a growth of 284%, when the volume of bets amounted to 149.2 euros. million ($164.12 million).

This evolution of the industry has been supported by an equal growth in the number of bettors. In the first quarter of 2020, the SRIJ identified approximately 440,000 players. A year later, that number had grown to 770,000.

Health and Safety for Sports Event Organizers – Media, Telecom, IT, Entertainment

The recent Winter Olympics and the conclusion of Six Nations rugby are just two of many sporting events, large and small, which have welcomed fans back (in accordance with local laws and restrictions) over the past few weeks. As we continue to live with COVID-19, it is essential that organizers of sporting and other events are aware of health and safety requirements and their duty of care to attendees.

Main legal provisions

The Occupational Health and Safety Act 1974 etc. (“the 1974 Act”) is the main piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in Britain. It defines the general duties of employers (and self-employed persons) to employees and the public, as well as the duties of employees to themselves and to each other. The Occupiers Liability (Scotland) Act 1960 also imposes liability on an occupier for injury or damage to any person as a result of something the occupier has done (or failed to do).

Health and Safety Considerations for Event Hosts and Organizers

The 1974 law stipulates that the working environment for employees must be safe and without risk to health, as far as possible. An employer is also responsible for ensuring that members of the public are not exposed to health risks.

In the context of sporting events, event hosts and organizers will also be required to plan, manage and monitor the event to ensure that anyone attending is not exposed to risks to their health and his safety. This means that it is the responsibility of the host or organizer to ensure that there are sufficient safeguards and procedures in place (including any relevant COVID-19 safeguards that are legally required ) to mitigate any risk to the health and safety of staff, participants and the public. who participate in the event.

Health and safety considerations when volunteers are involved

A sports organization that employs employees is required to comply with the 1974 law.

Where a club is run by volunteers (without employees), the 1974 Act will not apply, but the club/volunteers will have a legal duty to ensure that all premises (e.g. a club house , pavilion, playing field, etc.) under their control are safe for participants and spectators, as far as possible. The extent of the obligation imposed by law will depend on the level of control the club/volunteers have over the premises concerned. They will be required to maintain the premises and any equipment made available in good condition.

The obligation to ensure the safety of a person “as far as possible” means that the level of risk must be weighed against the measures necessary to control the risk, taking into account money, time or difficulties necessary to mitigate this risk.

Manage crowds

Due to the obligation to ensure that spectators and the general public are not exposed to health and safety risks, event organizers must put in place sufficient crowd control measures. This is not a consideration only relevant to the duration of the event – risk assessments should take into account the preparation for the event and should remain in place until spectators have left the premises safely. This would involve issues such as safe entrances and exits, hazard-free walkways, determining the site’s security capability, and having a crowd management plan in place.

What happens if I rent a location or facility?

If you rent a place to play sports or organize an event, you may have certain obligations to manage the risks, to the extent possible. Again, the extent of these duties will depend on the degree of control you have over the premises and any equipment on the premises.

However, the legal obligation is not exclusively an issue for the club/organization renting a pitch or facility. It is important to remember that the owners of the facility or location must also ensure that the environment is safe for use. Owners cannot simply ignore health and safety considerations (because the event is run by a third party) – there will be an ongoing duty to ensure there are sufficient procedures and planning in place , and that the premises and any equipment provided are in good condition.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide on the subject. Specialist advice should be sought regarding your particular situation.

MN House Bill penalizes bad fans at youth sporting events

By Sports events

ST. PAUL — The bill that penalizes sports fans who become unhinged during their children’s games is progressing at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Representing Jeff Huot is the sponsor of the bill in the House. He is also a long-time referee and has witnessed a lot of bad behavior himself.

He says there are already criminal codes that can solve some of the problems when violence turns physical.

He says the state also passed a law a few years ago that gave schools the right to suspend an unruly fan for up to a year, but it’s rarely enforced.

Huot says his bill would implement a civil penalty. It includes a $1,000 fine for your first offense that would be imposed by the Minnesota Amateur Athletic Commission.

We have to do something, doing nothing is not an option right now. It’s terrible to have to legislate behavior. Many of these events take place at the Little League level. I mean, how do you get in the car with your kid on the way home and have to talk about “Jimmy’s” mom or dad being a jerk on the sidelines?

Huot says a lot of details and specifics about the bill will be worked out as it goes through other House committees.

He says there is also a companion bill in the state Senate.

Chile seeks to ban sportsbooks from advertising at sporting events and clubs in the country

By Sports events

from Chile MP for the Coquimbo region, Marco Antonio Sulantayannounced that in the coming days he will submit a bill to Congress that would ban the advertising of betting companies at sporting events and clubs in Chile.

The lawmaker, who is also a member of the Chilean Sports Commission, explained that although betting companies “are legally prohibited from operating in our country, in reality they operate in tax havens, with unknown whereabouts, generating millions of dollars in profits, but without paying any tax on those profits,” he said.

“During the last years we have seen how dozens, if not hundreds of these platforms have taken over sporting events through static advertisingand sponsoring football teams in particular, which could become a serious problem, such as the participation of minors in sports betting,” Sulantay added.

Without going any further, the parliamentarian assured that online betting companies “could also lead to gambling addiction, since users can generate profits through small bets, but in a single bet lose everything and in the desperation to get their money back, bet larger sums again”. .

Sulantay said that “since they operate in tax havens, it is unclear who the owners of these betting houses are, one could therefore deduce that there is money laundering. So, it is necessary to prohibit them from sponsoring sporting events and clubs, otherwise the Ministry of Finance should move decisively to regulate their operation in Chileas has been done with streaming platforms, so that they can pay the corresponding taxes,” he concluded.

I haven’t seen any worried legislators at women’s sporting events

By Sports events

This remark originally appeared in the Montanan Daily.

The game had just ended and it was brutal.

I sat down in the stands and before the players had even cleared the field, head coach Pam McCreesh had already started attacking me, shouting from the field, “No, no. No. I’m not going to talk about it today.

She was the head coach of the Utah State University women’s softball team and I was the sportswriter covering them for the local newspaper. The Aggies softball team was absolutely awful and didn’t help playing in a league with many California teams that could spend the year training and training in the sun while the Aggies spent winter indoors.

This season was particularly awful, and the women had just set the school record for most errors in a game.

Get morning headlines delivered to your inbox

McCreesh gave me a lick that I still remember as the focus of my cover was all wrong. I had written a flurry of stories about mounting losses and her outclassed team, and she was tired of reading about it in the next day’s paper.

After receiving “no comment” for the journal, I trudged back to the office, challenged to find a new way to describe yet another ugly loss. It’s the sportswriter’s secret that it’s much harder to cover a losing team than a winning one. Victories are dramatic, victorious things to celebrate.

I remember turning away from the interview near second base and looking into the stands. I had been the only person present – a point I didn’t let slip when I scolded my sportswriter for sending me to an event that seemed to have so little appeal.

Having been a sports journalist, I can tell you that women work no less hard than their male counterparts, and they are no less talented. And yet, it’s true then as now, crowds tend to be larger in the same sports when played by men than by women. I could write volumes on this, but that’s probably best left to gender bias experts and sports historians.

That’s why it’s so shocking to me to see so much concern among lawmakers, not just in Montana, but across the country, as they try to enact legislation to protect women from themselves. . Lawmakers, including Montana State Representative John Fuller, want to ensure that the only women playing women’s sports are born biologically female. They banned transgender athletes from playing with their female counterparts, arguing that boys who simply can’t make the men’s team would do everything possible to identify as transgender and play among women. Those same lawmakers who seem so concerned about fairness in sports haven’t worried about women making a similar shift toward men’s sports.

If women’s sports are such a concern, especially for these legislators, why aren’t they filling the stands at women’s sporting events?

If women’s sports are such a concern, especially for these legislators, why aren’t they filling the stands at women’s sporting events? They seem so concerned about the fairness and integrity of women’s sport, but can’t bother showing up to the game?

The problem becomes – like so many other problems today – that of the genitals. When we only care about body parts, we miss the point of sport, which is to build community, teamwork, and showcase skills. Frankly, women’s sports need more attention and promotion, but that has nothing to do with body parts and everything to do with double standards. And believing that female athletes aren’t strong enough, articulate enough, and capable enough to watch over their own sport is a patronizing form of sexism in itself.

In other words, women’s sports were doing well without your help, legislators. In fact, the problem is that women’s sport has had to fend for itself for so long, it’s shocking and dishonest to see the concern now.

If lawmakers really want to make a difference in women’s sports, try increasing scholarships or finding a way to achieve parity in the publicity and attention given to women’s sports versus men’s sports. If lawmakers are so concerned that competition is so easily overwhelmed that boys can just walk in and compete, maybe that’s really an argument for making women’s sport more robust.

In other words, if you want more women’s sports, stop figuring out who to exclude and do a better job of who to include.

Los Angeles County lifts Covid restrictions for indoor concerts and sporting events, but there’s a catch

By Sports events

Los Angeles The county will align with the state and waive the requirement that attendees of indoor mega-events such as sporting events or concerts show proof of covid vaccination or a negative test, LA County health officials said today.

According to the county’s public health department, the requirement will be lifted on April 1 in conjunction with the state, which is also scrap the mandate.

No More Deadline

The move follows lifting other Covid restrictions in the county – such as indoor mask-wearing requirements – in response to declining numbers of infections and hospitalizations. But the approximately 3 million county residents who live in the city of Los Angeles are not so lucky.

According to public health ordinance sign by Mayor Eric Garcetti on March 4 of this year, “A covered location will require each guest to provide proof of vaccination when entering an indoor portion of a covered location. A covered location shall require proof of vaccination when entering the customer’s first in-person interaction with staff. A covered location is required to cross-check proof of vaccination for each customer who appears to be 18 years of age or older with photo identification. Subject to the exemptions below , a customer will not be permitted to enter an indoor portion of a covered location without proof of vaccination.”

Covered pitches, as defined by the cityinclude gyms and fitness centers, businesses that provide personal care services, businesses that serve food and beverages, and the following:

Entertainment and recreation venues, including but not limited to cinemas, music and concert halls, performance halls, adult entertainment venues, commercial event and party venues, sports arenas, convention centers, exhibition halls, museums, malls, shopping malls, performing arts theaters, bowling alleys, arcades, card rooms, family entertainment centers, playgrounds games, billiard and billiard halls and other recreational game centers…

Although they lifted restrictions today, county health officials continued to urge precautionary measures against the spread of the virus, noting that the BA.2 subvariant of COVID-19 is beginning slowly to grow locally and will likely gain a stronger foothold in the county, reflecting the pattern seen abroad and in some cities on the East Coast.

In the week ending February 26, 6.4% of all Covid samples that were tested for the variants were found to be the result of BA.2, which is a more infectious offshoot of the Omicron variant that fueled the recent winter spike in infections. That was up from 4.5% the previous week.

Health officials noted that while the percentage is still low, it is finally starting to climb significantly after hovering around 1% for weeks. They said BA.2 is currently believed to be responsible for 23% of sequenced cases nationwide, while accounting for 39% of infections in parts of the northeast. The proportion of new cases of Omicron is much, much higher overseas, and the variant now accounts for 75% of all new cases worldwide.

“The increasing presence of the highly transmissible BA.2 subvariant in many parts of this country reminds us that we must remain vigilant and prepared for the possibility of new cases in the near future,” the director of public health said. Barbara Ferrer in a statement. “And while discouraging to face
this possibility, the best way to mitigate a new outbreak of cases due to increased hospitalizations and deaths is to increase vaccination and booster coverage. Given the compelling evidence that vaccines continue to protect against all variants and their wide availability, residents and workers are urged to use the next two weeks to get up to date on their vaccines.

“Waiting until we start seeing increases in cases is not optimal because once there are more people testing positive, there is already more community transmission,” she said.

Health officials have continued to urge people to take precautionary measures — including masks — in crowded situations, even though they are no longer mandatory.

The county on Monday reported 935 new Covid infections over the past two days, bringing the cumulative number for the entire pandemic to 2,825,423.

Another 29 deaths have also been confirmed by the county, bringing the total death toll to 31,491.

According to state figures, there were 404 Covid-positive patients in county hospitals on Monday, up from 422 on Sunday. Of these patients, 65 were being treated in intensive care, up from 71 a day earlier.

The overall hospitalization total has not been this low since July 2021.

The rolling average daily rate of people testing positive for the virus, which was largely unchanged at 0.7% last week, was 0.6% on Monday, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

According to the county, as of Thursday, 75% of eligible county residents ages 5 and older had been fully immunized. However, only 30% of children aged 5-11 have been fully immunized, the lowest rate of any age group.
