Swiss Olympic officials on Tuesday urged the federal government to exempt athletes and international officials from new quarantine rules that threaten the organization of winter sports World Cup events.

People arriving from the growing number of countries on Switzerland’s red list must enter mandatory 10-day quarantine periods to protect themselves against COVID-19 and the aggressive variant of omicron.

The Red List now includes Canada, where female alpine skiers – including former World Cup champions Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States and Lara Gut-Behrami of Switzerland – are currently competing in Lake Louise. They are expected to travel to the side of Switzerland for two super-G races in the high end of St. Moritz.

“If travel restrictions and quarantine rules are maintained, the organization of international sporting events in Switzerland will be in danger, if not impossible,” said Jürg Stahl, chairman of the Swiss National Olympic Committee.

Switzerland is also expected to host cross-country skiing in Davos, ski jumping in Engelberg and ski cross races in Arosa over the next three weeks.

Swiss Olympic warned of the difficulties encountered by the current rules for athletes who “can no longer exercise their profession”, as well as for sports clubs and the economy at large, such as hotels and restaurants.

The Swiss economy has already been hit this week by the cancellation with less than two weeks notice of the 2021 Lucerne-based World University Winter Games.

Hundreds of athletes, coaches, officials and event staff were due to arrive for the competitions at several venues in central and eastern Switzerland.

Stahl said Swiss Olympic is keen to work with federal and local authorities to find solutions.

By Sports events
  • British sport has identified 97 events in 44 sports it wants to host
  • 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup and 2030 FIFA World Cup among the goals

The UK economy could be boosted by up to £ 4 billion (US $ 5.3 billion) by hosting major sporting events over the next decade, according to a new report.

UK Sport announced in May that it has booked 97 events in 44 sports it wants to host, including the 2030 FIFA World Cup and the 2025 women’s edition of the Rugby World Cup.

An Ernst & Young report, commissioned by UK Sport and the City of London Corporation, indicates that the economy could reap soft power, trade and investment benefits of up to £ 4 billion.

“The findings of this report clearly demonstrate the enormous value that major sporting events in the UK contribute to the economy,” said Simon Morton, COO of UK Sport.

“We can continue to leverage the undeniable value of major sporting events in the UK by entering into partnerships not only with the City of London, but also with the business and private sectors.

“Together, this will help us to further raise the nation’s global profile and generate significant social and economic benefits for the communities that act as host cities or villages. “

A feasibility study assessing the merits of a bid by UK and Ireland for the 2030 FIFA World Cup is underway, while England have been granted preferred bidder status for the World Cup women’s rugby tournament 2025.

Major events already secured include the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and the Rugby Union World Cup, both of which will take place next year.

Cryptocurrencies and estate planning – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

When a person dies after having made a will, his estate is transferred to his personal representatives and subsequently to the person or persons designated as beneficiary, once the administration of his estate is completed.

If a will has not been prepared, the personal estate of the deceased is divided among the surviving family members in accordance with the terms of the Succession Act 1974, after the administration of his estate is completed.

Bermuda’s Wills Act 1988 defines “personal property” to include leasehold property, corporate shares and chattels, among other forms of assets, and “all other property which by law requires are the responsibility of an executor or administrator ”.

But how do you deal with crypto assets?

They are not tangible and therefore incapable of being things in possession.

However, they hold a value that an individual has the right to own and transfer.

As ownership evolves, as with crypto assets, the methods used to preserve and pass them on in the event of death must also evolve.

The main concern of leaving crypto assets in a will is to ensure that they can be viewed and transferred to designated beneficiaries.

Crypto assets can be stored in different ways.

For example, cryptocurrencies like bitcoin can be held in crypto wallets, each of which has an address with an alphanumeric identity longer than 30 characters that acts as a pseudonym for the identity of the actual owner.

The most common types are hot and cold wallets.

Hot wallets are described as online cryptocurrency storage software, but because they are online, they can be susceptible to cyber attacks.

Cold wallets are offline storage devices and therefore tend to be more secure.

Regardless of how a crypto asset is stored, an individual needs an access key code to access it.

Two high profile cases show how crypto assets were lost.

In 2018, the CEO of Canadian crypto exchange QuadrigaCX, Gerald Cotten, passed away suddenly at the age of 30.

His $ 190 million in crypto assets was inaccessible because he was the sole holder of the company’s private keys and cold wallets – and hadn’t shared those details with anyone.

That same year, Mathew Mellon died at age 54, but his $ 500 million worth of cryptocurrency was also lost.

Mr Mellon had stored the private keys to his crypto assets in cold wallets distributed at various banks, but he had not told anyone where they were.

These examples show how easy it is to lose access to cryptocurrencies, and highlight the importance of creating a plan that executors and beneficiaries should follow when managing an estate, especially when it comes to managing an estate. concerns crypto assets.

When drafting a will, special attention should be paid to instructions on how to access crypto assets so that they can be transferred to the intended beneficiaries.

Most importantly, beneficiaries should be given clear instructions on how to access crypto assets.

In Bermuda, a will becomes a public document once it is probated.

It is therefore not advisable to note the wallet address and / or the access key code in a will, as no one would want this sensitive information to become accessible to other than the intended beneficiaries of the crypto assets. .

In order to ensure that crypto assets are kept safe and available for transfer to the beneficiaries of the estate, individuals should provide a detailed plan of how their crypto assets are held over their lifetime and how they are to become. accessible to the beneficiaries of their inheritance upon their death. .

For example, a cryptocurrency bank may hold crypto wallets and their access key codes on behalf of individuals.

Instructions may be left with the bank to grant access to executors and beneficiaries. This way, wallet details and private key codes remain private and are only disclosed to those who are entitled to them.

Another way to transmit crypto assets is to keep the cryptocurrency in a cold offline wallet and store the private access key information in a safe, while ensuring that detailed instructions are left behind. on how to access the safe and wallet.

As more people start to diversify their portfolios with crypto assets, they need to make sure they have a detailed plan to preserve and pass those assets on when they die.

They should also consider seeking advice on whether they should set up a trust or hire a custodian to hold their crypto assets on their behalf.

In any case, owners of crypto assets should carefully review their estate planning to ensure that their assets, and more specifically their crypto assets, can be passed securely to their beneficiaries.

New Covid variant in South Africa, sporting events, Nu variant, coronavirus B.1.1.529, Indian tour in South Africa

By Sports events

Sporting events in South Africa have been turned upside down following the British government’s announcement on Thursday that South Africa had returned to the “red list” following the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus in the country.

Officially known as B.1.1.529 and potentially named Nu, the variant has worried scientists due to a large number of mutations and a large number of cases in South Africa. It was originally seen in Botswana.

Two Welsh rugby teams, Cardiff and the Scarlets, have announced they are withdrawing from scheduled United Rugby Championship matches and plan to return home as soon as possible.

Sixteen British players withdrew after the first round of the Joburg Open golf tournament, the first event of the new DP World Tour, and had to return to Britain to avoid having to spend two mandatory weeks in quarantine.

The quarantine obligation comes into effect on Sunday.

The Scarlets were scheduled to face the Sharks in Durban on Saturday and Cardiff were scheduled to meet the Lions in Johannesburg on Sunday.

Irish team Munster and Italy’s Zebre were also in South Africa for Saturday’s games against the Bulls and Stormers respectively.

There was no immediate word on whether the Munster and Zebra games were going to take place. Munster issued a statement saying their players were “safe and healthy” in Pretoria. The club said they are working with the championship organizers and will provide an update later.

A spokesperson for the Sunshine Tour, which co-sanctions the South African stage of the World Tour, said officials from both bodies are meeting to discuss the latest developments and are expected to issue a statement later on Friday.

Two more tournaments, the South African Open and the Alfred Dunhill Championships, are scheduled in South Africa over the next two weeks and the spokesperson said at this point the tournaments are due to take place.

The South African cricket team played a one-day international match against the Netherlands at Centurion on Friday, but according to website Espncricinfo, it has not yet been decided whether two more matches in the series will be played. .

Fear of the coronavirus could also jeopardize a comprehensive high-profile tour of South Africa by India, which includes three test matches, three one-day internationals and four Twenty20 internationals, starting December 17.

The most popular sporting events in the world

By Sports events

(STL.News) Sport is an integral part of human culture. This has been the case since time immemorial. Almost everyone in the world will have an interest or at least an interest in one type of sport or another. The popularity of various sporting activities is also increasing as internet connectivity and television rights continue to expand across the world.
While all kinds of sports have impressive audience figures, some are doing better than others. The number of spectators varies widely from sport to sport and this is easily seen from the audience of sporting events. To put that in perspective, let’s take a look at the most popular sporting events today.

Fifa World Cup

The World Cup is without a doubt the most anticipated sporting event on the planet. It occurs every four years, and in those years it is often one of the most watched sporting events in the world. On average, the World Cup audience is 3.5 billion people. Football or soccer, as it is commonly known, is already establishing itself as one of the most recognizable sporting activities in the world. So it’s no surprise that the World Cup brings together so many people to celebrate beautiful sport.

Other equally footballing events that draw an equally massive audience are the Women’s World Cup, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Confederation Cup.

Olympic Games

Now the Olympics are a different kind of event. This is because it involves multiple sports and athletics unlike the other events listed here. It often attracts more viewers than any other sport for this reason. In 2008, the Beijing Olympics drew 600 million viewers, which is very close to the number of viewers for the 2010 World Cup final. That’s the size of these games.

Tour de France

It turns out that there are many people around the world who are deeply interested in cycling tournaments. The Tour de France is the biggest in the world and it has the numbers to prove it. With up to 3.5 billion viewers, the event that takes place in France each summer is a prestigious sports competition that resonates with many fans. It is a very difficult route which often involves cycling through incredible landscapes. This perhaps adds to its appeal.

Cricket world cup

The popularity of cricket is quite disproportionate, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is one of the most watched sports. In some countries like Pakistan and India, it is the most watched single and this has contributed to its dominance as one of the main sporting events. At least 400 million viewers come together every four years to watch the Cricket World Cup. Some cricket matches have even attracted audiences of over a billion people.

The Super Bowl

In America, few sporting events are even close to being as big as the Super Bowl. This American football event is the National Football League championship game and it has the numbers to back it up. Each year, it attracts tens or even hundreds of millions of viewers, most of them from the United States. Although it does not enjoy such popularity outside the country, the part of the American population that is fans is very respectable considering the population of the country.

NBA Finals

For basketball fans, few leagues are as popular as the NBA. Fans always follow their favorite teams throughout an 82-game regular season that typically ends in the playoffs and finally, the NBA Finals. These finals are often honored by many spectators as well as public figures and celebrities. This further adds to its appeal with a peak audience of over 16 million people in a single game.

NCAA Finals

College sports are also no slouch when it comes to the world’s most popular sporting events. In fact, this is usually where professional athletes start. So it’s no surprise that NCAA basketball games are so important. Players can not only show off their talent, but also put teams from their schools on the map. The maximum viewership for the event has passed 16 million, making it almost as popular as the NBA Finals.

Honorable mentions

Other incredible sporting events with huge viewership numbers that we can’t leave out include the Rugby World Cup, Kentucky Derby, Masters, Boxing, and the World Series. There are plenty of events to watch out for depending on where you are and what interests you have. It all depends on the sport you like. There is always a chance that there will be an event just for that.
